    I posted links to illustrate that there may be more to the story than you may be aware of. Of course anything that doesn't fit your narrative is "baseless". That's Liberalism 101.
    Regardless fuck Biden and it will be hilarious if he is implicated in anything. I'm not accusing him but if anyone does, and proves it, more power to them. Maybe Harris will pardon him when she leaves office!

    To recap ...

    Standard of proof for any allegation against Joe Biden: Anything somebody typed onto an image and posted on a right-wing meme site is true.

    Standard of proof for a murder charge on which somebody has been convicted by two separate juries: "Did you personally fly to Baghdad and watch them kill those people?"

    My buds didn't have to e-mail me anything. If you didn't notice the MSM and nearly every fucking member of Hollywood, entertainers, celebrities and the left in general busting on Trump and everyone who voted for him for four years (and let's not forget the zero evidence Russian collusion) you are blind as a fucking bat or option B a fucking liar. Maybe it's a little of both!
    I sincerely hope everyone who voted for Biden gets the government they deserve and then some.

    boo hoo - bottom line the guys are pardoned. You don't like it tough shit. When it's Biden/Harris turn they can pardon whomever they want, and if the summer of 2020 was any indication they will have plenty of people to pardon.

    I didn't say I approved of it. But if that's your opinion I can't do anything about that. Opinions mean nothing.

    You approved of the pardon, so that means you're cool with it.

    You used to freely admit that some Trump supporters were indeed Nazis, but also claim that their numbers were too small to be of any concern.

    Now the guy that throws around terms like "chickenhead" is offended by... what, exactly? :chris:

    Nope. Few, if any of the protestors (I assume that's who you're referring to), have been, or are likely to be charged with Federal crimes. Even fewer will be convicted. Presidential pardon powers do not extend to state or local crimes.

    As with this thread, you don't know any of the details, you're just excited over the fact that there's something you can make people angry about. The simple fact is the folks Trump pardoned in this particular instance were not US soldiers but were instead, employees of Blackwater. The mercenary firm owned by the brother of Trump's Secretary of Education, Betsy deVos. And they were operating in this particular instance against the orders of the US military forces in the area, who told them to remain in the Green Zone. Even Dayton objected to the US government hiring mercenary forces to handle operations. Are you sure that this the hill you want to die on? Had these been active duty US service personnel, would you be okay with them getting a pardon for actions so serious that it sparked the largest FBI investigation since 9/11?

    You have been consistently been very insistent that being on the same political "side" as someone doesn't mean that you/they share all or indeed most views. That being the case I'd love to know where Biden has called "Trump Hitler and people who voted for him Nazis".

    It clearly convinced a judge and jury, which evidence in the case do you dispute?

    You don't know the difference between "agree" and "disagree"? Even a toddler knows that.

    I think we're dealing with the logic of a 3 year old. It's appropriate given the subject matter.
