    Rather than only watch excerpts that were selected specifically to show the worst moments of Biden's performance, people should watch a much larger percentage of the broadcast. That way they can have a much better impression of how Biden did overall. Also imagine how you would perform if asked the same questions. Ask yourself if you would have learned in advance the answers to all the questions that might asked you, and if you would have trouble remembering and recalling (on the spot) all of the information/data you would need to answer the questions accurately.

    Here is a link to the CNN web page which all three parts of the "CNN Presidential Town Hall with Joe Biden (July 21)" of this year: https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/21/politics/full-president-joe-biden-cnn-town-hall-july-21/index.html .

    Welcome to Biden’s America

    On July 26, 2021, a La Joya Police Department Officer was waved down by a concern citizen at the Whataburger located at 450 E. US-83, La Joya, TX 78560.
    The citizen explained to the Officer that she had observed a family group who were not being observant of proper health guidelines. She stated that the family was coughing and sneezing without covering their mouths and were not wearing face masks.
    The Officer was also told by Whataburger management that they wanted the people to leave the establishment due to their disregard to other people's health.
    The Officer approached the family and was told by them that they had been apprehended by Border Patrol days prior and were released because they were sick with Covid-19.
    It was also learned that the family was housed at the Texas Inn Hotel located at 612 E. Expressway 83 La Joya Tx. 78560, by a charity group.
    Officers made contact with Hotel management who explained that Catholic Charities of The Rio Grande Valley had booked all the rooms in the hotel to house undocumented immigrants that were detained By Border Patrol.
    Officers also observed that a group of 20 to 30 people staying at the hotel were out and about the majority with out face masks.
    It was also learned that people being detained by Border Patrol that showed symptoms of illness or were positive for Covid -19 were being quarantined by the agency and then later they were given custody to Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley to be placed in hotels in the McAllen area as well as La Joya.
    Upon receiving all this information officers contacted Hidalgo County Health and Human Services for assistance. Officers were told that the agency would look into the matter.
    We want to inform the public about the current situation we have encountered and ask that the citizens of La Joya to exercise social distancing measures and that they please use face masks in order to prevent the spread of Covid -19 or its variants.
    La Joya Police Department has been assisting Border Patrol in the apprehension of hundreds of people crossing through the cities jurisdiction and the flow of undocumented immigrants does not show any signs of slowing down.
    Border Patrol informed La Joya Police Department that on July 25, 2021 that they have surpassed 1 million apprehensions in the month of June.
    We also want to add Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley did not inform the La Joya Police Department that people that had symptoms or were sick with Covid-19 were going to be placed in the Texas Inn Hotel.

    WTWizard, you made an extremely false claim (of the magnitude often made by Trump) when you said (on page 1 of this topic thread) regarding Biden "... it is deliberately imposing communism. What else can you call sending troops door to door to force people into getting their torture shots for this little tiny cold?" The Biden administration is clearly not imposing communism. The Biden administration is not going to door to force people get Covid-19 shots (which you call torture shots). The Biden administration is going door to educate people about the benefits of the shots and to encourage people to get them, but not to force them to get them. Furthermore, Covid-19 is vastly more dangerous than the cold - and vastly more dangerous than the flu.

    I am astonished that so many twisted statements are made on this site, and that such are posted by so many people. I would think that people on this site would have enough appreciation for truth and have enough self-respect than to say such things. I presume that your comment was said partly to "push people's buttons" (as the saying goes). But if you actually believe what you said, then that might be even more troubling in regards to what it represents about the mindset of apparently so many conservative/"right"-wing people of the USA.

    Yet. They will however, end up with a good list of "subversives". The non-conformists could later make excellent candidates for re-education activities.

    We have the internet. Two brown-shirts from DC going to do better than that? I don't think so. I'm not buying the education spin at all.

    greenhronet, the USA is both a republic and a democracy. We are a republic in that we have an elected President instead of a hereditary monarch or any other kind of monarch. We are a democracy, in the form of a representative democracy. Also to some extent we are a direct/pure democracy since the people, in at at least states, have the opportunity to vote directly on some legislation (and even to write such legislation) in the form of Initiative Ballot Measures. Furthermore, one definition (found in dictionaries) of the word "republic" is "a representative democracy".

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_republic (quote definitions from the definitions from the Oxford English Dictionary ) says "Democracy: "A system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives." Though the original form of democracy was not "through elected representatives", modern ones (at least the vast majority of them) are.

    The Wikipedia article also says the following.

    "Eugene Volokh of the UCLA School of Law notes that the United States exemplifies the varied nature of a constitutional republic—a country where some decisions (often local) are made by direct democratic processes, while others (often federal) are made by democratically elected representatives.[3] As with many large systems, US governance is incompletely described by any single term. It also employs the concept, for instance, of a constitutional democracy in which a court system is involved in matters of jurisprudence.[3] "

    It has been my observation that people who say the USA is "a republic not a democracy" are people who are members of the Republican Party or who align with it, but not with the Democratic Party. In contrast I have never heard (nor read) any Democrat or anyone else say the USA is "a democracy not a republic", though Democrats more commonly say the USA "is a democracy" than they say it "is a republic". To me the USA is a democratic republic.

    JPenB75, in contrast to what you wrote, I write "If you are a citizen of the USA who loves his/her/'their" country and western civilization but wants them to improve (and for our world to improve overall), instead of becoming destroyed, then vote Democrat (or Green or Progressive)."

    Sea Breeze, I notice you used the phrases "re-education activities" and "brown-shirts". Are you really comparing the door-door activity by the Biden administration (which is like some politicians [and their campaign staff] going door-to-door to persuade voters to vote for them) to the forced indoctrination camps of the communist government of China and to the adverse activities of the former Nazi party (whose members were often called the "brown shirts"?

    I was incorrect in thinking that the term "brown shirts" was a term which applied to all of the Nazis, instead it applied to the Sturmabteilung or SA, a notorious paramilitary organization within the German Nazi Party. Members of the Sturmabteilung wore brown shirts. See https://www.britannica.com/topic/SA-Nazi-organization. See also https://www.newsweek.com/marjorie-taylor-greene-nazi-germany-ajcongress-brown-shirts-1607540 which has an article called "Jewish Groups Blast Marjorie Taylor Greene's 'Medical Brown Shirts' COVID Jab Comparison".

    The latter article says 'The "Brown shirts" refer to the Sturmabteilung or SA, a notorious paramilitary force assembled in the 1920s which targeted Jews and other groups and facilitated Adolf Hitler's rise to power.'

    Regarding Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and her comments the Newsweek article quotes her saying "People have a choice, they don't need your medical brown shirts showing up at their door ordering vaccinations. You can't force people to be part of the human experiment". The article further says 'However, Eric Fingerhut, CEO of the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) condemned Greene's latest tweet, telling Newsweek that her "repeated use of Nazi imagery to discuss public health issues is outrageous, offensive and unacceptable."


    "Jewish Federations are working hard to secure Jewish communities facing rising antisemitism across the country, and this kind of rhetoric only adds fuel to the fire. Greene should retract her statement and apologize," Fingerhut added.'

    Regarding Greene and her comments, the article quotes Joel Rubin, executive director of the American Jewish Congress as saying "The Holocaust and Jewish suffering is not a prop for her delusional views comparing efforts to save lives through vaccines with the most heinous, systematic state-sponsored slaughter of millions of innocent victims."
