    The link is a bit misleading. Creepy Joe didn’t import anything. Some oil company did. The underlaying story failed to go into details about how or why but I’m pretty sure it had nothing to do with America NEEDING Iranian oil to make our fuel supplies meet demands. maybe someone should look into who actually did the importing and demand answers from them.

    This does remind me of the corrupt Oil for Food program when European aristocrats traded oil certificates on behalf of Iran when their Oil was embargoed, and made millions all the while demanding the USA not interfere in Iraq.

    Rumor has it, the Biden family know a lot about international trade in Oil.

    Throughout 2020, the notion that the novel coronavirus leaked from a lab was off-limits. Those who dared to push for transparency say toxic politics and hidden agendas kept us in the dark.

    Thank goodness the police showed unusual restraint in FL. Two kids (12 yr old boy and 14 yr old girl) had run away from a foster home, broke into a house, found an AK-47, 2 shotguns and a handgun and started shooting at the officers looking for the runaways. The girl was wounded and the boy surrendered unharmed.

      Maybe Rimjob could explain what was so unusual about the police doing their job.

        DickBreath might note that often the police kill people who aim guns at them. These thugs got off lucky.

        Tamir Rice was killed for holding a toy gun. The officers in Florida showed unusual restraint.

        • Dana says:

          From Wikipedia:

          On November 22, 2014, Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old African-American boy, was killed in Cleveland, Ohio, by Timothy Loehmann, a 26-year-old white police officer. Rice was carrying a replica toy gun; Loehmann shot him almost immediately after arriving on the scene. Two officers, Loehmann and 46-year-old Frank Garmback, were responding to a police dispatch call regarding a male who had a gun.[3][4][5] A caller reported that a male was pointing “a pistol” at random people at the Cudell Recreation Center, a park in the City of Cleveland’s Public Works Department.[6] At the beginning of the call and again in the middle, he says of the pistol “it’s probably fake.”[7] Toward the end of the two-minute call, the caller states that “he is probably a juvenile”, but this information was not relayed to officers Loehmann and Garmback on the initial dispatch.[8][9][10]

          The officers reported that, when they arrived at the scene, they both continuously yelled “show me your hands” through the open patrol car window. Loehmann further stated that instead of showing his hands, it appeared as if Rice was trying to draw: “I knew it was a gun and I knew it was coming out.”[11][12][13] The officer shot twice, hitting Rice once in the torso.[4][14] According to Judge Ronald B. Adrine, “…On the video the zone car containing Patrol Officers Loehmann and Garmback is still in the process of stopping when Rice is shot.”[13] Rice died the following day.[15]

          Rice’s gun was found to be an airsoft replica; it lacked the orange-tipped barrel that would have indicated it was a toy gun.[16][17] A surveillance video of the incident was released by the police four days after the shooting, on 26 November.[18] On 3 June 2015, the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office declared that their investigation had been completed and that they had turned their findings over to the county prosecutor. Several months later the prosecution presented evidence to a grand jury, which declined to indict, primarily on the basis that Rice was drawing what appears to be an actual firearm from his waist as the police arrived.[12][19][20] A lawsuit brought against the city of Cleveland by Rice’s family was subsequently settled for $6 million.

          Bad information, but the police did nothing wrong: young Mr Rice behaved stupidly, drawing what looked like a real gun on the police. Perhaps Mr Dowd believes that the police should have to hold their fire until first fired upon?

          No, “Tamir Rice was killed for holding a toy gun,” he was killed for being stupid.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Still, Tamir Rice was a 12 year old boy with a toy gun. And acting like a kid. The police car had not even come to a stop when the officer fired. How many “shots” had young Rice fired?

            The two white kids in Florida were shooting at the officers with real guns, and the officers stood down.

            So who was more stupid, young Mr Rice or the two white thugs who attempted to murder police in Florida?

            Should we have the state kill all 12 yr olds who do something stupid?

            In Chicago, 13 yr old Adam Toledo was unarmed with his hands up when killed.

          • Dana says:

            The indignant Mr Dowd wrote:

            Still, Tamir Rice was a 12 year old boy with a toy gun. And acting like a kid. The police car had not even come to a stop when the officer fired. How many “shots” had young Rice fired?

            Young Mr Rice was a 12-year-old boy who had been reported as a man with a gun, who had been pointing it at others. Yes, the police did the right thing; from their perspective, he could have been 21, not 12, and he was armed with what looked like a real firearm. The incident was examined by law enforcement, and sent to a grand jury, which looked at the evidence much more closely than either of us, and the grand jury did not indict.

            The two white kids in Florida were shooting at the officers with real guns, and the officers stood down.

            So who was more stupid, young Mr Rice or the two white thugs who attempted to murder police in Florida?

            The officers in Florida had a much better perspective of the perpetrators in that case, and they did fire, taking down one of the perps, though not lethally.

            Who was more stupid? Anyone confronting a police officer with a weapon is stupid! Asking which ones were more stupid is like asking whether the Hirsute One or you is smarter; not a lot good from which to choose.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Here’s a very sympathetic piece on the darling children who tried to murder the FL officers. Be sure and read the chatter between officers.

            “Let’s not shoot these kids, man. Let’s just hold ’em off, take our time,” one of the deputies can be heard saying.

            The officers in Cleveland did not have to kill Tamir Rice. Their cruiser hadn’t even come to a full stop before they shot him.

            Are these differing responses due to Tamir Rice being a “thug” and the darling children in FL being well, darling children mistreated by a flawed foster system. Tamir Rice was zero threat and is dead.

            Officers view Blacks, even Black children, as a greater threat than whites and respond consistent with this.


          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            The irascible Mx Dana continues to defend the police killing of 12 yr old Tamir Rice, claiming he could have been 21 and that the officers had no choice but to kill him for being stupid. He bolsters his argument, such as it is, pointing out the officers were not indicted. Officers are rarely indicted for killing Black citizens. But the laws they are a changin’.

            In FL, imagine the outrage if they had shot and killed the darling blond child as he walked out, thinking he had a hidden pistol.

            In any case, the practical Mx Dana would surely posit, that tragic as it would have been, America would be better off if the officers had slain the 12 yr old male thug and 14 yr old female thug. We’re surprised he hasn’t pointed that out already.

            The person who called in the Tamir Rice “threat”, twice said they thought Rice was a juvenile and that the gun might not be real. This information was not relayed to the responding officers for some reason.

            The officers in FL responded deliberately and appropriately, and fortunately no one died. Would they have been as sympathetic to Black teenagers who broke into a mansion in a rich white neighborhood?

            And why were there readily available shotguns, an AK-47, pistols and thousands of rounds of ammo just lying around an unoccupied mansion? Do most mansions in FL have guns lying around??

            Except for a couple of black powder rifles, we keep our guns in two gun safes. Some states have tried to pass laws that would secure firearms when not under the control of the homeowner, but those laws probably won’t apply to toy guns like Tamir Rice was brandishing at the playground.

          Rimjob seems disappointed that the police didn’t kill someone.

          That’s just sick.

            DickBreath is mistaken once again.

            We pointed out how unusual it was for police who are fired upon to be so careful with the perpetrators.

            In fact the officers didn’t blame the white shooters at all but wondered how society and the juvenile system had let the children down.

            “Don’t make me do this. Don’t do this,” the officer is heard saying under his breath…

    Former President Donald Trump is demanding that China pays ten trillion dollars for its role in the coronavirus pandemic as he added to growing calls for Dr. Anthony Fauci to explain exactly how much he knew about work being done at the Wuhan Institute of virology.

    In a statement, Trump derided his scientific adviser by claiming he saved hundreds of thousands of lives by resisting Fauci’s guidance on everything from closing borders, developing vaccines and wearing masks.

    ‘Now everyone, even the so-called “enemy,” are beginning to say that President Trump was right about the China Virus coming from the Wuhan Lab,’ he said in a second statement sent minutes after the first.

    First of all I would point out that an AK-47 or any rifle for that matter beyond a .22 will penetrate a tree with the greatest of ease. Hiding behind a tree when rifles is involved is futile other than to prevent yourself from being seen.

    Taking cover behind a car is only safe if you use the engine block for cover. A rifle of almost any caliber will penetrate easily both sides of an auto with the greatest of ease and kill you.

    It was clear from the sound of the exchange that they were being fired upon by a semi automatic rifle. The police officer is extremely lucky they did not see him in the dark behind said tree or else the ak-47 would have penetrated the tree, perforated his vest and killed or seriously wounded the police officer.

    This is why you do not let anyone shoot up the neighborhood. People need to stop watching movies where Rambo is hiding behind a tree that is about a foot thick and thinking that a high powered sniper rifle will not penetrate that tree with ease.

    They do. Police and military cannot let people with AK-47’s shoot up neighborhoods because those rounds will penetrate everything in site including neighbor houses and the like possibly hitting gas lines and causing death and destruction to people a 1000 yards away from the center of the fire fight.

    Just an FYI Elwood. Hostile situations are to be contained immediately. When you start trying to kill anyone including cops they are going to end it. Sooner rather than later.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Est: … an AK-47 or any rifle for that matter beyond a .22 will penetrate a tree with the greatest of ease. Hiding behind a tree when rifles is involved is futile other than to prevent yourself from being seen.

      That seems somewhat a little bit counterintuitive. But the penetration depends on the wood and the thickness of the wood. If you’re behind a 3 foot dia oak or maple it’s highly unlikely a .223 from 100 yds will kill you. Perhaps I just haven’t heard of the occurrence but deer hunters don’t shoot through an oak tree, even with a 30-06 or 7 mm mag.

      Mx Est is correct that homes offer little resistance. The same for car doors (in contradistinction to cop shows). We shot up junk cars with 30-06’s and the shots go through and through.

      It seems that AK-47s (7.62x39mm) aren’t very beneficial except for shooting at cops and killing innocents en masse, and of course, at war. Are we sure the female thug had an AK-47 and not some AR-15 model?

      • david7134 says:

        And that is why we have a Constitutional amendment so that you don’t have to figure why we need or desire a particular firearm. Then your next stupid comment will be about machine guns and those should be legal as well. If the Dems would allow nuts to be put away like in the past, then we would not have as much difficulty. Of course, that would deplete the party. The issue with penetration power of a gun relies on the type of bullet. If the bullet is hardened it will past through many obstacles, cops generally shoot soft bullets (outlawed on the battle field). These bullets are stopped by walls and also stop bad guys.
