    The big banks control the big money. I can see them wanting people to feel secure enough with the 'financial world' to spend money, take out loans, make investments, etc.

    And if the reports that Shyster Trump is considered a very high risk by many financial institutions is true, he might not be inclined to back another bailout. Even if that meant going against what would actually be in his best interest.

    Nah, those are the day traders
    Trying to make a buck on the short run and roller coaster

    The BIG players they like it stable
    Like Warren Buffett
    And he’s just made an investment into gold, which he never does
    And is selling on oil...a big commodity

    So that’s a huge indication that it’s going to be a drop and wild ride soon.

    T is pissing off the big wigs
    They want their yachts on smooth waters

    And yes Chris, banks especially want it smooth
    It can devalue money, real estate and more otherwise. Get people into a panic...

    I just saw Ronna McDaniel on Face The Nation. When asked about Trump's actions regarding race relations and Black Lives Matter, she gave one of the slickest responses I've ever heard. In about 20 seconds she managed to very effectively combine half truths, lies, twisted favorable interpretations, empty platitudes, etc.

    It was impressive. In a very bad way. Because some people will not recognize her slick response for what it is, baffle them with bullshit.

    Lincoln Project announces coalition of Republican women against Trump

    Now The Lincoln Project won't be such a sausage fest.
    Republican women are charging in.
    It will be a nice balance and a needed perspective to battle T and his cohorts.

    And followup from above...
    Former RNC chairman Michael Steele joins Lincoln Project, anti-Trump group working to elect Joe Biden
    Just in time for George Conway to pull back for his family sagas

    I'm amazed at how many conservatives are getting into the fight and saying aloud what they object to Mr. T. (and his allies)

    It's like Bizarro world...the Dems are in sync, on message and on point with smooth ads (and many GOP jumping in with them like the opposite of Reagan's 1st win)
    And the GOP has got major divisions and is mismanaged with no momentum.

    Am I wrong?

    I'm presently surprised that some normally red states are in play,
    likely against T more so than for Biden, if I'm being real.

    Civiqs
    Texas, Montana, Georgia...even South Carolina is only 1% for T
    Civiqs has Biden slowly but consistently trending up
    If this was all held today, B would get 400+ electorial votes.

    This one also has Texas in play with recent polls
    ElectoralVote.com

    Even Real Clear Politics, which is fair but leans right a bit, is showing B in the lead and a winner with no toss-ups.
    RealClearPolitics - No toss-ups - 2020 Electoral College Map

    We still have Sept and Oct to go...and strange things happen in those months.
    Stranger still, I bet in 2020 and this wacky election year.

    The key will be keeping foreign influence out.
    And making voting secured and functional
    The election security hole everyone ignores

    Not any more than T
    And he’s in MUCH better shape

    Both have to be careful about the virus
    But Biden takes precautions, T goes on in ignorance

    Is Shyster Trump, or his people, and/or the Russians, playing the COVID-19 card with overly optimistic reports of a vaccine by the first of the year?

    I try to avoid giving too much validity to the conspiracy nuts, but given Shyster's history of misinterpretation, and blatant lying, I can see him (and others) going all in vaccination exaggerations.

    Some news reports are optimistic without actually promising a vaccine, but also not mentioning the report is being optimistic. Hook the people (voters) who want to hear what they want to believe.

    Other reports are clear in their very cautious optimism.

    Well, he’s trying to use anything he can get his hands on
    As well as the Russians

    But there is a good antivirus, in England
    Done by Oxford and AstraZenica
    If it keeps going well, we should see it distributed initially by October (FDA has to approve it)
    The US has reserved quite a bit, but it likely won’t be available in volume in the States until end of year
    The election will be over by then.

    Until then, T will keep fear alive
    And try to claim any positive as his own
    The Russians, China and others will keep trying to muddy the waters ...As well as T, messing with voting.

    I think people should focus on the virus by itself
    And the quality of President by itself
    Keep them separated

    Right now, it’s fairly tribal
    40% of the nation is for T
    45% is for Biden
    With them fighting over the independents and wishy-washy folk
    And hopefully, as many vote as possible

    If people don’t show, then T has a chance
    If lots show, then he doesn’t

    Chaos and confusion, despondency and despair are his allies.

    Yes, I expect that there will be a lot of announcements of vaccines in October. I wouldn't trust any of them, but it will be put out there. Either by Russia who is doing a real life human experimentation to see how effective their vaccine in, or by the rich pharma companies and executives who want the tax breaks and deregulation.

    The CDC sent out a letter indicating there might be a vaccine available by the first of November, 2020.

    Call me cynical, but that sounds incredibly optimistic, and especially convenient.

    The date seems calculated to make it impossible for most voters voting by mail to change their minds if the proposed target date is met, or missed. IIRC Tricky Dicky used ending the war in Vietnam to help get reelected in '72.

    Regarding that ill-planned boat parade for tRump that ended up swamping a portion of its members: The Wreck of the SS Full MAGA!

    (This is not one of mine, credit goes to someone named Kevvboy on DailyKos)

    Sung to the tune of Gordon Lightfoot's "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald":

    The legend lives on from Bowling Green on down
    Of the big lake they called Sinky Trumpy
    Lake Travis, it’s said, never gives up her dead
    When the lakes of September turn bumpy
    With a load of full bores, twenty six thousand tons more
    Than the ‘SS Full MAGA’ weighed empty
    That good ship and true painted red white and blue
    When the waves of November came early

    The ship was the pride of the north Dallas burbs
    Sailing back from a rally in Irving
    As motorboats go, it was bigger than most
    With a captain and crew - more than twenty
    Their MAGA hats on, but of masks, they had none
    When they left fully loaded for Austin
    And later that night when the ship’s bell rang
    Could it be the blue wave they’d been lost in?

    With covfefe strong, all the boats sailed along
    Flying Trump flags from every railing
    The waves rose up high but they zoomed right on by
    All the libtards alongshore, a-wailing
    And every man knew, as the captain did too,
    Twas the witch of November come stealing!
    Kamala’s her name and they see her dark flame
    Lighting up the skies o’er Sinky Trumpy

    The boats were too close - two or three feet at most
    And the big waves began now a buildin-
    The little boats sank, people fell in and drank
    The dark waters of gloomy Lake Travis
    When suppertime came the old man came on deck sayin
    Magas, it’s too rough to feed ya
    But at 7 pm when the hatchway caved in, he said
    Magas, it’s been good to know ya!

    The captain, he cried out to call 9-1-1
    But his iphone could not get a signal
    He sent off a text and he tried WhatsApp next
    But the good ship and crew were in peril
    And later that night when his lights went outta sight
    Came the wreck of the SS Full MAGA
    Does anyone know where a Trumper can go
    To find someone to hear his sad saga?

    The searchers all say they’d have made it that day
    If they hadn’t drunk so much Sam Adams
    Of twenty white men, none that knew how to swim
    We searched for ‘em deep in the fathoms
    They might have split up or they might have got swamped
    It might have been sharks that have got ‘em
    Now all that remains is the faces and the names
    And the Trump flags stretched out on the bottom

    The legend lives on from Bowling Green on down
    Of the big lake they called Sinky Trumpy
    Lake Travis, they said, never gives up her dead
    When the waves of November come early!
