    Interesting that Al Jazeera aren't reporting the breaking news that information from Hunter Biden's discarded laptop, proving that Hunter Biden and his father Presidential nominee Joe Biden, have been entangled in payoffs with Ukraine, and in bed with Russia for years!

    Facebook and Twitter are refusing to release the videos of these stories!

    This is a historical cover up and the Al Jazeera hasn't bothered to report on it?

    What's with that?

    29 times previously, in an election year, nominee's have been put forward by a sitting President for this same position! This is not out of the ordinary! Former President Obama put his own nominee forward in his final year in office!

    A President is President until the day he is voted out! His duty is performed right up until that day, regardless of public opinion, or the frenzied protests of the opposition!

    Amy has all the experience and qualifications required to carry out this position with excellence!

    Amy, or any other nominee, are not allowed to comment one way or another on any matter that may come before them at a later date! They are to make a ruling at the time, in strict accordance with the constitution of the United States of America, without bias! Amy is known to be a strict constitutionalist! That's always been her position!
