    As I read that list it occurred to me that most people in this country never got the message due to all of the negative news and omitted accomplishments that the MSM perpetrated for 4 long years. They created so much noise and so many distractions along the way.

    I think I said it somewhere else here before, it wouldn't matter what he did or said it would have been suppressed, criticized or twisted. He never had a hope with the MSM. His bombastic approach didn't help and it likely turned off many that weren't all that interested in digging for the truth. I've seen the disdain in people I've known to be staunch conservatives...and I get it. I think I cringed more than I cheered...but in the end facts are facts no matter what the spin.

    I'm glad that President Trump was there. He did a lot of good for a lot of people. Even if some of them were complete retards that couldn't unfold a paper bag.

    I for one hope Trump starts a new political party. Imagine a third party with 75,000,000 members. I think here where I am at least two, maybe three of our 5 congressional members would join. If not they would not be reelected.

    President Trump had a a lot of support, not only in my town, but entire region as well.

    While I didn't like a lot of his antics, he stood up for America and Americans.

    Found this article by Tony Perkins

    https://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=WA21A36&f=WU21A11

    I pointed out to my family the other day that a significant number of Trump's policies are actual legislation, not executive orders like many other presidents. It's going to be a lot harder for Biden to get rid of them as a result.

    This I see is the biggest problem facing patriots in this country. The Propaganda Palaces MUST be toppled! Figuratively or Literally--I don't care which way... ;)

    I haven't watched any of Bidet's BS the past few days--it does not interest me. Apparently there was a press conference with the new press sec., with nothing but gushing and softballs thrown... :rolleyes: This will continue until Bidet croaks, which will be within the year... Then the SWHTF... :eek:
