I'm not sure about this. I think keeping it somewhere you can see it and, to some extent at least, control it is probably better than pushing it either underground or somewhere you can't touch it.

Imagine a non-US company offers to host it.

Look at the 5th picture, the bottom one.

Can you imagine what must have been going through the officers' mind at that moment?

I wouldn't have cried if they'd shot off every nose that came through that window.

>> I wouldn't have cried if they'd shot off every nose that came through that window..

I’d agree with that.

Elsewhere but I can’t find the clip at the moment, there is a burglar breaking in to a house using a crowbar and doing some damage in the process.

The cops on the forum suggest that to kill him would be murder.

Personally a bloke breaking in could have murderous intention like the lot on the post and should get whatever is coming.

More than a bit overdone, would have been better without the music.

He was of course a Republican governor which should wind up the Trump nutters who just regard anything a Democrat says as proof they are Commies.

Without the theatrics, this is actually the sort of thing the Republican leaders should be saying.

Arnie is a very intelligent guy*, and waaaay better than Trump with an autocue.

He also believes what he is saying.

I think we're going to see more and more examples of Trump being dumped by the world. And I expect it will snowball pretty quickly.

"..."It has become clear that conducting the PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the PGA of America brand and would put at risk the PGA's ability to deliver our many programmes and sustain the longevity of our mission," said PGA of America President Jim Richerson."

The son of Gary Player was incensed the golfing legend went through with receiving the Medal of Freedom on Thursday from President Trump.
“I wish my father would simply & politely decline this ‘award’ at this time. Tone deaf. In denial. Wrong!!” Marc Player, Gary’s oldest son, tweeted in response to a story about the honor.
The ceremony came one day after Trump’s supporters rioted at the Capitol in one of the darkest days in American history.
Female star Annika Sorenstam also received the Medal of Freedom, as did Babe Didrikson Zaharias posthumously.
A guest told GolfChannel.com that the ceremony included 50 to 60 people and went off “without a hitch.” Player, 85, and Sorenstam both played golf with Trump in 2019.

Though, as you say, he claims to be cured of racism.

Not just Trump being targeted

Several major US corporations announced over the weekend that they are withholding donations to lawmakers who have been blamed for stoking last week's unrest at the Capitol.

Hotel chain Marriott International pledged to withhold campaign contributions from any official "who voted against certification" of Biden's November victory. The certification process was briefly halted when rioters interrupted the session last Wednesday.

After the session continued, 147 Republican lawmakers cast votes in an attempt to throw out Biden's win.

Health insurance company Blue Cross Blue Shield and financial powerhouse Citibank have also said they will stop donations to the lawmakers who objected to the US democratic process.

Bank of America, Ford Motor Co and telecoms firm AT&T have said they will consider recent events when deciding which candidate to give financial backing to in the future.>> >>Yeah well it fits, player is (claims he is cured now) a renown racist.

I think it'll be more surprising if it doesn't happen again but more at a state level Congress. But then at state level it's nothing new. There was an attempt last year to kidnap the governor of Wisconsin, where the proud boys had an armed stand off in the Congress. I think there was one in 2011 and probably a few as well.

 Tony Schwatz. Talks about Trump - henry k
Tony Schwatz, who wrote Trump's book " The Art of the Deal " spoke at The Oxford Union prior to Trump's election.
He said what might well happen if Trump were to loose ( four years ago ) but seems quite accurate for this weeks activity.
30 mins for his talk and 30 min Q & A.
( Extracts of the first 11+ mins of the Q & A are circulating. )
 Tony Schwatz. Talks about Trump - Manatee
Here's the Schwartz talk.

Worth listening to the whole hour I think, but chilling to hear what Schartz said in 2016 what Trump's reaction to losing that election would have been. If you just want to hear that start around 38 minutes.

 Corrupt Presidents. - Zero
Stand by for the Trump pardons. Most of them apparently come with a price tag and promises of "help" post presidency. No, absolutely no presidents have a clean record in this respect tho Trumps will be critically examined more closely than past, but at the end of the day how can a supposedly civilised country be so politically corrupt.

My view, less than a mere beat of a butterfly wing admittedly, is that they should be banned. Completely.
