The 2020 Republican National Convention ended the way the 2016 RNC did, with a lawless criminal being nominated the party's presidential candidate while in the process of breaking the law.
The incident comes a year after a push to boycott and fire Carlson, following his August 2019 commentary that White Supremacy is a "hoax," so I have to ask -- what is the incendiary line Fox News won't let its hosts step over?
Day Two featured the First Lady's attack on the media for ignoring the opioid drug crisis, a day after the RNC opened with gossip about members of the First Family delivering their speeches under the influence of drugs. In fairness, cocaine is not an opioid.
"If you really want to drive them crazy, say 12 more years," was how the Republican nominee for President opened his convention Monday. Because that's what a President should want: to drive Americans crazy.
People may debate whether he's serious or just trolling us, but the crazy things the President says are just part of his methodology. Like other con men, he uses double talk to confuse, distract and misdirect us. Unlike other con men who are trying to part us from our money, this one is trying to part us from our democracy. He's succeeding.
Three months after benchmarking the trust Americans imbue in Joe Biden's presidential brand, the Democratic contender's trust rating has moved up six percentage points, with nearly half of American voters indicating they have confidence in him. That's the finding of the latest edition of Brand Keys Media Trust Tracker, reflecting the views of American voters as of August.

With less than 89 days until America gets to answer that question, lets all spread the new campaign hashtag -- #IIWII -- as much as we can to remind America what "it" truly is.
The biggest factor influencing the outcome of elections is stupidity, not the economy. The No. 1 reason? The dissolution of professional journalism and growth of -- how should I say this -- less rigorous sources of validated information. The progression began with the shift toward digital media, and the fact that anyone could publish a site, a blog, or a social media post, but according to an exhaustive study released this morning by the Pew Research Center, more Americans get their political and/or election news from a website, app or social media than from traditional journalistic media like TV, radio ...
If you want to understand why the White House resumed its COVID-19 pandemic briefings, and why they now feature only the President, you should have listened in on Ipsos' most recent "Election 2020" tracking presentation Thursday. The analysis, which covers a wide range of projection sources for predicting the outcome of the election, said voters sentiment currently hinges around one central issue: whether the government has a "robust plan to help the nation recover from the impact of coronavirus."
The current presidency began with crass commercialization of those inside the White House, and, it appears, will end that way too.
