    "Truth be told, I am a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, small-government, strong-defense and a national-anthem-standing conservative. But, I also believe that black lives matter, that the Dreamers deserve a path to citizenship, that diversity and inclusion are essential to our national success, that education is the great equalizer, that climate change is real and that the First Amendment is the cornerstone of our democracy. Most important, I believe that America must lead in the world with courage, conviction and a sense of honor and humility. I voted for Joe Biden."

    An airplane was about to crash; there were 6 passengers on board, but only 5 parachutes. The first passenger, Rachel Maddow said, "I have my own show and I am the smartest and most intelligent woman at CNN, so Americans don't want me to die." She took the first pack and jumped out of the plane.

    The second passenger, Nancy Pelosi, said, "I am the Congressional House Speaker of the United States of America., an America loves me." So, she grabbed the second pack and jumped.

    The third passenger, Joe Biden said, "I will soon become the President of the United States, and I will cleanup the mess Donald Trump left us because I am smart a kind and generous person." So, he grabbed the pack next to him and jumped out.

    The fourth passenger, Bernie Sanders said, “I should’ve won the nomination to become the next president of the United States of America.” So, he took the four pack and jumped.

    The fifth passenger, Amy Barrett said to the sixth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolgirl, "I have lived a good life and served my God the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute."

The little girl said,

    "That's okay, Ms. Barrett. There's a parachute left for you. America 's next President took my schoolbag."

    Hello thanks for the info but I have some questions It's great that people are voting. That being said I'm an independent voter and the debate moderator that was chosen has deleted her Twitter account and why would that be because she has so many anti Trump hateful tweets. She needs to be disqualified there is nothing worse than having a biased debate moderator i. I saw that happened with Chris Wallace and it was wrong on every level. This lady is extremely hateful she's an extreme left-wing individual . She had no business running this debate. I do not want to watch the debate when somebody that's antagonistic and angry towards the president of the United States. It should be fair and it should be balanced . And as a matter of fact I think we should have a moderate conservative person as a debate moderator. Just to be fair because there are Democrats and Republicans or even a true independent libertarian would be great We already had Chris Wallace who is well you know what side of the fence he's on he made it clear. Chris Wallace is by no means a fair reporter at all. And then you had President Trump with Samantha Guthrie. What a nightmare that was I mean that woman was like a rabid dog . It was so bizarre frankly disgusting. That's just not professional. showing so much hatred. It was almost like she was possessed. And I can bet you that she will not be asking Joe Biden some extremely important questions. And the questions I want to know as an independent voter how much money of Hunter Biden money did Joe Biden have access to while he was vice president of the United States? And it wouldn't just be a hunter Biden it would also be his brother which had that construction deal in Iraq when Joe Biden was appointed by Obama. As an independent voter I really want to know what kind of a security risk Joe Biden would be. And don't forget the 1.5 billion dollars with communist China. That to me is really really dangerous I don't want a president of the United States. Is embolden to China especially from all the things I've learned about the communist China party and how they treat their people. We cannot have a pro China president in the United States of America. and by the way with all this information Joe Biden shouldn't even be allowed to have a security clearance at this point. And we found out that the FBI has had this laptop so it's not Russian disinformation. Yesterday the dni said it was not Russian disinformation that's very important for the American people to know. Unless I get some clear answers from Joe Biden it's going to be impossible for me to vote for him. And also he's got to answer about court packing and that he also knows Kamala Harris's on board with him as far as court-packing . either they are going to or they're not going to!! but I think as an independent voter I have a right to know!! I also would like to know if Joe Biden is going to apologize to the African-American Community about his past voting record and the comments he has made about calling black people predators. I did see his speech just recently. And you know I didn't know that he spoke that way about black people but nevertheless. It would be good if Joe Biden would on national TV apologize to the black community about his voting record and about the things he has said while he was a Senator about black people. About this big debate it would be a great time for him to acknowledge everything and let the American people know that he will never behave that way again… and you know lately he said some strange things perhaps we could get clarification at this debate. besides calling black children roaches and saying he loved them sitting on his lap robbing his hairy legs… That Corn Pop video that I watched I'm not sure what that really means.!! Perhaps you could play That Corn Pop video so that the American people and the world can listen to it and then just tell us please what did you mean? I'm sure one of your reporters has it !! It was at his campaigning stop … you probably still have the Biden Corn Pop video. On the same topic if we talk about race it's important to know why he told some black women that he wanted to see them dancing when they were four and two years old. I believe this was about a week and a half ago give or take!! If a race question comes up I really want to know as a voter why he would be telling black woman he wants to see them dancing when they are 4 and 2 years old . The Corn Pop video his voting record.. and it's very important and then it's really important that he is asked with all the revelations that have come out on this lap top that the FBI has. He needs to be asked point-blank so
    can explain to the American people how his family's involvement with China Ukraine and Iraq that's all I know of so far how that would affect National Security!! And then I would like the moderator to ask Joe Biden Point Blank if Donald Trump's son was doing making money from foreign countries because of his father's position as well as the smoking crack and the orgies and all the sex things and other illegal abuse is that are going to be coming out tomorrow I think. Does Joe Biden think that if it was Trump's son doing all the things his son was doing what that disqualify Joe Biden needs to be asked point-blank how that would affect National Security especially because he's been working in the government for so long he must know the answer to that question and he must share that with the American people. As an independent voter I really want to know these questions . In fact it wouldn't even matter whether you were a staunch supporter of the Democrat Party the Republican party or an independent voter I think the American people as a whole really need to know the answers to this question I think it's imperative. And if the debate moderator does not ask I really think that your new news reporters need to ask those questions from both him and Kamala Harris. Thank you very much I appreciate it.

    Vote Biden: Trumps 81% in 2016 evangelicals hate all catholics + all other religions to hell…Abraham Lincoln is also a murderer, see bellow why. BS so many evangelical igabod fraud millionair diabolic Lakewood church +++ Billy Graham was also a Unitarian Universalist, finally before he died, so was Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Murray etc.   Abraham Lincoln was also a murderer ! At 81, the Lord is still teaching  me new unknown truths: Watch Netflix "Montana 38" documentary made in 2008. In 1886  the Universalist Abraham Lincoln authorized to hang all at the same time 38 Sioux original US American Indians in Mankato city Minnesota US. The day after Christmas. It was shown on film. Originally they plannned to murder 300, but reduced the amount. In 2005 an old Sioux Indian had a reptitive dream/vision from The Great Spirit to announce a conmemorative ride on horseback, 16 days, 330 km, in 45 degrees below zero from Montana to Mankato city in Minesota, where the hanging took place. Many people from various states and Canada participated. They slept and prayed in churches and were welcomed by friendly todays Americans in the many cities and villages they passed through. Promoting mutual forgiveness and reconciliation for the killings on both sides. The early Indians started a revolt war, as they were abused, land stolen from and starving. Thousands were murdered by the US army. (As thousands of blacks were lynched/hanged, murdered later on). From 16,000,000 Indians originally today there live only 239,000. In 2008 and still probably,there annual income is $ 5000 with the highest rate of suicides in the world, crime depression and alcoholism. Many served in Vietnam with lasting handicaps. Not much changed in this US discrimination.All American Indians believe in God, The Great Divine Spirit and heaven where they will go after death. The 38 murdered, held hands, prayed together, forgave (as Jesus did dying from His Cross also) and shook hands with their own murderers. Comforting each other to meet again in heaven. They never were "saved" evangelicals, who did not even exist in1886, but i too believe they are all in heaven now.

    Does the left even know how stupid it sounds to just focus on "blaming Russia" (with ZERO proof mind you) on an issue instead of focusing on the actual story and the implications of that story? The left are a bunch of fools to follow ANYTHING blindly without questions. I listen to MSNBC, CNN, ABC, FOX, all the networks because I want the most data available so I can make up MY OWN MIND! Try it sometime. You might be surprised what you will learn. Stop with the blind allegiance that Trump is bad so anything that Trump or FOX or conservative organizations say is a lie. Not the truth at all. The Hunter Biden emails are damning and YES it has been corroborated by third parties. YES, the Director of National Intelligence has said that Russia has nothing to do with the Hunter Biden emails. YES, there is an actual receipt where Hunter signed his computer over to the computer repair shop with Hunters signature. YES, there are actual receipts from last year where the computer shop owner handed over the computer to the FBI. All of this is researchable and you can see the actual receipts FOR YOURSELVES! Yet the left has no clue about any of that because you simply refuse to expand your minds and LISTEN to all data and sides before coming to a conclusion. It's a joke to focus on nonsense while literally the biggest story of corruption and the potential security risk to our nation EVER is right before you and MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC are completely ignoring it. Y'all are sheep….wake up!

    Bidens are corrupt, we have irrefutable proof and you guys are scared to death of the truth, yeah reporting “nothing to see here folks” is what you do to run defence on the Bidens. Then at midnight in a few weeks you issue some apology. You people are completely compromised by the DNC just like Hunter and Joe are by China and Burisma. When will you return to your journalistic ethics, if this was Trump, you’d be all over it like you were for 4 years on the Russia hoax. Well, the Russia hoax pertained to Trump but the China and Ukraine corruption is real on the Bidens and crickets from you.

    If the law does its job Joe will have to answer this!
    Biden has claimed that he never spoke to his son about his overseas business dealings! However, now new evidence reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad in May 2014.

    In the email that was sent from Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, to hunter, it reads, “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent some time together. It’s really an honor and pleasure…”
    Link https://twitter.com/mbracemoore/status/1318169217955487747

    Eight months later, after VP Biden met Mr Pozharski, he admittedly pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to get rid of Prosecutor Viktor Shokin who was investigating the corruption of the company, by threatening to withhold 1.2 billion US loan guarantee during a trip to Kiev in December 2015………………………….

    It proves that VP Joe Biden has been lying to American people about his involvement in his son’s businesses in Ukraine and China!

    Are you OK with this? It's not just the money, it's the loss of jobs and industry, people's livelihoods and mental health, he didn't care, are you OK with that?
    You OK with Twitter and FB telling you what you can and cannot read and post? You call this democracy??? I call it communism!…………………..
