WEAPONS OF MASK DECEPTION

7/5/2020
Science has shown that when both the infected and uninfected are all wearing masks, the chances of catching Covid is greatly reduced. And, some of those in their 20s who catch Covid appear to have lifetime damage, like becoming diabetic or even developing dementia.

Do Republicans really think not wearing a mask...

COULD THIS BE A TURNING POINT?

7/1/2020
Are conservative Americans waking up to Trump's incompetence and greed? But even if they do, history will remember the cowardice of the Republicans who have supported this traitorous administration.

And can we believe Trump's claims he didn't know about the Russian bounties on American scalps?

WHITHER THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE?

6/22/2020

Bush and Donald Trump both lost the popular vote, by a half-million and 3 million votes respectively, yet occupied the White House even though a majority of Americans didn’t want them there.

THE MEAT SHORTAGE WAS FAKE
