Nine Inch Nails backs Biden!

Tweet by Nine Inch Nails: Warning: two political posts to follow. We are gravely concerned about the future of our country (and the world) and therefore will be voting for and supporting Joe Biden and Democrats down the ticket.

Sure, you’ve heard that Reagan’s FBI director and 19 other former GOP-appointed US attorneys are backing Biden, but if you’re still undecided, this might clinch it: Nine Inch Nails have endorsed Biden.

So now you have it from NIN themselves. Vote Biden, because it’s time for Trump to bow down before the ones he’s supposed to serve.

Voting for Trump is voting against the rule of law

Rome fell partly due to outside forces, but largely because of the rot from within. Tap to view at full size.

The Trump campaign may claim that they’re about law and order, but the evidence and their outright in-your-face criminality says otherwise. It’s only their collective incompetence that keeps them from being more dangerous and lawless. Voting for Trump is voting against the rule of law.

Like any such compilation, the above chart of criminal activity by grifters in Trump’s circle is already out of date. It’s missing Brad Parscale, who was campaign manager until the Trump rally in Tulsa, a flop so spectacular that it has its own Wikipedia entry. It also proved to be expensive not just in a financial sense, but in terms of people infected and lives lost (including Herman Cain’s).

Last month, a shirtless and slurring Parscale got “Baker Acted” (a very Florida term for being detained because you’re going to hurt yourself or others) after barricading himself in his house with a loaded gun. The police managed to coax him outside, giving them an opportunity to demonstrate how you tackle and arrest an extremely tall person (Parscale’s height is 6’8″ / 203 cm). It’s all documented in this video:

If you’re eligible to vote, you have a civic duty to vote Trump and his band of looting hangers-on out. They are the true threat to law and order.

But don’t take my word for it — take if from actual lawyer Devin Stone, whom you might know better as YouTube’s own Legal Eagle, who makes the case that:

A vote for President Trump is a vote that says the law doesn’t matter.

It’s a vote that says it’s okay if the rich and powerful use the law unequally.

It’s a vote that says criminals will not be punished.

But that only happens if we allow it.

I still believe the law matters.

I still believe in equal protection.

I still believe in justice.

And I hope that you do too.

And I hope that you consider the rule of law when you vote.

A moment that proved that Trump doesn’t represent America — just himself

During today’s announcement of the opening of trade between Israel and Sudan (a big step towards normalizing diplomatic relations between the two countries), what should’ve been a pure win got spoiled by a moment that proved that Trump doesn’t represent America — just himself. 

Here’s the video of that moment:

The brokering of a deal between Israel and Sudan, an adversary that overthrew its dictator last year and now has a Prime Minister who has appointed the country’s first female ministers, is a foreign policy achievement that Trump could have used in his campaign.

But he can’t use it now, because he made about Biden. The story isn’t about the Trump administration brokering a mideast peace deal anymore. It’s now a two-part story, the first of which is that yet another foreign leader betting on Trump losing the election.

(Netanyahu’s reluctance is part diplomacy and part pragmatism — as the leader of a country that depends on American largesse, he knows how badly Trump is doing in the polls. He’s also aware that the UK government also knows.)

More importantly, it’s about how Trump puts himself above his own country. Between the campaign, coming down with COVID-19, and all the damage control he’s had to do, he likely hasn’t devoted much of his own time to brokering the Israel/Sudan deal. The work was done by other people in the administration, who work under the mantle of the Trump administration, who in turn doing their work under the mantle of the United States.

The President of the United States should not be trying to bait a foreign leader into bad-mouthing any individual American, never mind one who is a former Senator and Vice President. This is the second part of the story: That proved that Trump doesn’t represent America — just himself. He tried to turn government work into a campaign moment, and he took America’s moment and tried to turn it into Trump’s moment.

For the love of this country, vote this narcissistic, incompetent, self-serving man-child out of office on November 3rd.
