General Michael Hayden, a Republican, and former Director of both the CIA and NSA, declares that he will be voting for Joe Biden, saying, “If there is another term for Trump, I don’t know what happens to America.”

I wasn’t going to post tonight, but then I saw this new ad put out by Republican Voters Against Trump featuring retired General Michael Hayden, and I felt compelled to share it, in hopes that a few of you might want to pass it along to your Trump supporting friends and relatives. Yes, there’s part of me that wishes we’d nominated someone farther to the left, who Republicans wouldn’t feel so comfortable getting behind, but it does my heart good to see life-long conservatives like Hayden coming out, doing the right thing, putting country before party, and declaring that they’ll be casting their ballots not for the candidate who will allow them to pay less in taxes, or give them the judges that they want, but the one who will bring dignity back to the office of president, reestablish our position of leadership on the global stage, and end the rampant criminality of the last four years. I’m proud to live in a country where there are people like General Hayden, Olivia Troye, Elizabeth Neumann, Bill Kristol, and Cindy McCain, who have the character to stand up and say something, knowing that doing so will bring the ire of many they once considered friends. One hopes, over the course of the next 28 days, we see even more people making the leap, in hopes of getting on the right side of history. Yes, it would have been more impactful had they joined us several years ago, but I’m happy to welcome them to the side of light.

    They know it’s literally treason. Meanwhile pootin attacks our election infrastructure on behalf of his stooge, who says nothing about it but instead spouts some Hillary fever dream delirium for his treasonous base.

    No surprise here. Both Bush administrations worked towards the New World Order. Any RINO coming out in support of Biden is outing themselves as part of the Deep State. Trump is our only hope of avoiding One World Government and total loss of freedoms.

    EOS are you all confusing civilized society with the deep state?

    Are you really an Anarchist ?

    EOS, there is no Republican Party so he can’t be a RINO. Parties have platforms and programs. There is the Trump sychophant crowd, and everyone else. Your One World Government, blathering about socialism are good stories to tell the slow witted like HW (believe me it takes one to know one and HW is slower than me) but didn’t work with Obama (same story with a Kenyan flavor) and it won’t work with Senator/VP Visa/Mastercard.

    No, not at all. The anarchists and mobs are the means used by the radical leftist Democrats to destroy our culture and civilization.

    Being Sad requires a level of socialization beyond what Trumpers have achieved. Sad, implies some form of empathy. I’ve not seen you angling for pity before. You sure you are not suffering Seasonal Adjustment Disorder? Just be glad you are not a dogmatic dolt like me, or a blithering idiot like HW.

    The CIA, FBI, and Obama administration knew 4 years ago that HRC fabricated the Russian collusion story about Trump. Brennan announced, after this information was declassified and released, that HRC’s actions were campaign tactics and not illegal. Yet millions of dollars were wasted and a President was impeached by partisan congressional action for events that the entire intelligence community and prior administration knew for a fact to be total bullshit. At some point even the dullest among us has to realize that they will say or do anything, destroy innocent persons, and use any tactic to obtain power. Stop them before they use that power to destroy our country.

    FDR’s VP, John Nance Garner, is often quoted as having said, “Being VP is not worth a bucket of warm spit (piss).”

    Not so for Joe who managed to use government resources to enable his son to receive many millions of dollars of payments from foreign entities. Despite prior problems with cocaine and no real business experience, Hunter was the conduit for massive payoffs that even Obama officials deemed to be inappropriate and likely to have been illegal.

    This national delusion that HW and EOS believe in is pretty scary. If anything it makes it more real to me how important it is that Donald Trump not get re-elected.

    Just some ISIS terrorists indicted. At least it underscores the real progress in actually stopping terrorism in the Trump era. Compare to Obama/Bush when ISIS was booming.

    I just made an amazing breakfast/lunch for my kids of fish cakes, spinach, roasted cauliflower and potatoes and tamarind maple waffles– crafted mostly from the leftovers from last night’s dinner at Bellflower in Ypsi. Highly recommended. Excellent spot. Highly skilled staff. Nice to see SOMETHING being well-run these days. Also very heartening that a few people took their down time during the pandemic to actually create something new. I had hoped for a lot more creative output (from myself and others). Maybe there’s more to come. I feel certain that the collective sigh of relief if Trump is defeated will produce a great creative outpouring. My hat is off to those who can manage to dream/make amidst the current madness.

    Bob– I grew up in a family who fishes. Fish for breakfast is just about as regular country as a person can get. Leftovers for breakfast is just thrifty. Also, Wednesdays are now online schooldays for kids in AAPS now and so the unofficial sleep in and eat late pseudo-weekend weekday.

    Glad to know chosen breakfast foods concern you more than science-denying, Trump supporting conspiracy theorists. You are both boring and corrupt and a secret conservative or at least as judgmental as one.

    PS Mark is the owner of Bellflower and I was just congratulating him on his success. But please blowhard on, you fucking idiot.

    I think Ypsilanti has done a wonderful job in eliminating public urinating. In my walks around town Ive counted at least 8 public porta-potties set up. There are 4 across from Stupid Hicks old world piss spot. There is at least one in each of the parks.
    Then a few weeks agp the Summit market set one up in their parking lot. They are trying in ways they never did in the past.
    I was thinking Ypsi is probably not a bad place to be homeless. Plenty of places In Water St. to have a camp. Public johns, and a number of free food sites.

    I considered telling my daughter about that alley’s former function, but decided against it to avoid the inevitable gentrification argument.
    To be clear, no pissers were displaced by the construction of Bellflower’s patio. There are abundant empty lots remaining in the area, one just a few feet away. And ports-potties! Something A2 has failed to implement In any lasting way because their trial made clear their need for safe injection spots and better treatment facilities and overall social services. .

    When will the storm be upon us boys?
    How many hoped for dates have come and gone?
    Will you still believe in Q when Joe Biden is sitting in the Oval Office?
    No one wants to admit they were duped, but don’t you look in the mirror sometimes and wonder, “Why isn’t Hillary Clinton in jail? Why is trump on TV saying that Hillary should be indicted?”?

    Another Q cultist

    “A Facebook page for Eric Molitor, another Michigan man who faces state charges in the case, features praise for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who’s accused of killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wis. Molitor also posted about conspiracy theories relating to the QAnon movement, posting the QAnon hashtag “Save Our Children” and images about human-trafficking conspiracy theories. Molitor had previously posted images indicating affiliation with “three-percenter” militias, a far-right paramilitary movement.”
