To think that Biden is actually making any of these decisions is funny as hell. He has no clue

Do you think private citizens never have their tax returns handed over to authorities ?
When they break the law and its needed for a court case.
So Trump tax returns get turned over to a NY prosecutor?
For what reason? He is a private citizen.

So is March 1st really the date when Americans finally say to hell with the asinine mandates?
That was a few months ago for me. I dont wear a mask anywhere but where my paycheck is signed.

I am just looking out my window now and as far as the eye can see are illegal Latinos, higher than fuck, selling 11 year old girls and waving their welfare checks in the air. They're everywhere. Total madness. I wished we'd have listened to Sean Hannity before it was too late.
This is the exact left wing liberal BS. Just wait till they move in next to you. Then you will bitch

Starting to see fans back in the stands at more and more NBA games.
Wonder how difficult it’ll be to get Reds tickets with the 30% capacity.
Pro sports should be embarrassed in regards to no fans. Pee wee sports are packed daily.

They are using some of the exact same facilities that they protested during Trump. Who cares who is running it. The left screamed about cages for a year (which weren't cages) and now it's COMPLETELY different. Truth is no one cared when it was Obama, and only cared when it was Trump because of TDS. They will continue to not care now.

agreed, if they wanted every single person vaccinated, just tell them that once they pass an antibody test 4 weeks after vaccination, they can do whatever they want

I guess DeWine cant come out and call the pandemic over (since we arent actually in one based on cases and severity), saw a new commercial today where he called it "a health challenge"

LOL bringing up Manafort as some sort of justification for spying..he was arrested on a process crime. Same thing Comey, brennen, Clinton, Strok, Page, Weisman all did but they dont eat their own in DC so nothing happened

No, that is in dispute. That is where we disagree and will never see eye to eye.
Like I said.....the other side has never disputed this claim by providing any other evidence. They have never defended their actions with anything.
So no, at this point its not in dispute. There is nothing to dispute it with. Just like them, you cannot (or wil not) defend your statement with anything factual.

On one hand, I don't have a problem with Biden saying Christmas. He's saying he has no idea, and doesn't want to give a date, only to be wrong and scrutinized. I don't blame him.
On the other hand, screw COVID. Let's just get back to normal already.
What he should do is give us a date. July 4th sounds good. On that date, all restrictions lifted. Do what ever you want. Leave it up to the adults in this country. You want to wear a mask, wear one. You want to stay locked down, stay locked down.
If cases rise after that then add something on. If they dont then good. We wont know unless we try.
Just got my mail today. Spam insurance letter, 2 post cards from colleges that my kid will never attend

I dunno why anyone is still taking about Johnson and Johnson vaccine. I know the US has ordered it and it should be approved by the end of the month but their production delays are horrible. By the end of May, Moderna and Pfizer should have enough vaccines for any adult who wants one while J&J will have like 12 million doses.
They can sell those to China

No. It is more complicated than that as I dispute the fact the dossier started things and played a role. But, I'll let it be as we will never agree on the basic facts.
You live in your point of view world and I live in mine and we will never see eye to eye on the details.
Here is where your argument falls short:
The Dossier has been talked about for years as the reason why the FISA warrants were signed. There literally has never been anyone (Obama, Clinton, Brennan, Comey) ever dispute that with other evidence they had. THeir silence is deafening.

So you agree that the DNC funded dossier started the "monitoring" of people in the Trump campaign.
I understand you want to sugar coat some of the words you are using to defend the left here, but I never said directly Obama and I never said directly Trump.
You basically wrote a few paragraphs to say "well you are right, but I am going to change some of the verbage to make it not sound as bad". You are arguing semantics. The Obama administration used a DNC funded fake dossier to get a FISA warrant to spy/monitor people in the Trump campaign.
It's really much simpler than you are making it out to be.
If you go with his narrative then he is simply saying that the Obama administration was the dumbest people on the planet to think that all that material was actually real. He doesnt get it both ways. Either they were all in on spying (obama knew everything) or they were the dumbest people on the planet. Let him pick.

Short answer: No.
Not as short answer because again, we just differ on the facts. Define spying? Actually spy on Trump or members of the campaign, because the issues get mixed up. Do I think Trump himself was spied on, no.
Did the FBI use legal means to investigate Papadopoulos that were located before the dossier, yes. Is that considered spying in your mind?
Was the dossier the smoking gun, unclear and timeline is mixed on when warrants were issued by the FISA court on other items. I've read numerous things over the last four years where the FBI had evidence of Pap without any evidence of the dossier to justify the warrant. Same goes for Manafort, which did not have anything to do with the dossier.
Again, I really do not want to go down this road, because posters on here just do not even agree on the basic facts and timeframe of everything. At this point, it is beating a dead horse
And you are in the running for post of the year already. You are absolutely brain washed, live in a massive vacuum of misinformation ....or just plain stupid.
The evidence that the FBI, DOJ, State Dept. and WH were all working together in a manner that was illegal is overwhelming.
Christmas? You can fuck off
