Trump is remembered MORE for improving the economy than January 6, his COVID response and the 'drama': Daily Mail poll reveals why Biden constantly warning 'democracy is at stake' is falling flat with voters

When Bill Clinton and Barack Obama joined Joe Biden on stage in New York last week they agreed that voters had a clear decision to make in November's election.

'I think our democracy is at stake,' said Biden at the fundraising event. 'Not a joke. I think democracy is literally at stake.'

But an exclusive Partners poll shows that his campaign still has work to do if that is going to be a winning message.

Voters are more likely to say they remember a better economy during Donald Trump's four years in office than the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol or four years of political drama.

Of 1005 likely voters, some 30 percent said they thought first of 'a better economic situation'. In contrast, 20 percent said their main memory was Jan. 6.
Democratic strategists said there was still seven months until the election and there was plenty of time for the Biden campaign to sharpen its messaging and refocus perceptions.

And a Biden campaign insider said a plurality of voters seemed to remember negative things about Trump's time in office, even if a healthy economy came top.

Even so the results also show that the upheaval of street protests and Trump's erratic handling of the coronavirus pandemic have faded from immediate memory.

Overall, 45 percent of respondents say their life was better under Trump, compared with 38 percent under Biden.

Although the numbers split along partisan political lines, they are reflected among independents, who may include the swing votes that will determine the outcome of the election.

Corrupt Biden factually saved Zlochevsky by firing Shokin

No.1284567 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
House republicans discover that the replacement for Ukrainian prosecutor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma (the one whom Biden got fired while VP) immediately removed Mykola Zlochevsky from the wanted list and dropped all charges against him.

Biden was *literally* responsible for firing the Ukrainian guy investigating a corrupt oligarch and replacing him with a crony.

Impeachment Witness Confirms Joe Biden Is The ‘Big Guy’ In China Deal

The recent testimony by former Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski suggests that Joe Biden may have lied about his involvement in his family’s business dealings.

The House Oversight Committee is currently investigating whether Biden should be impeached for influence peddling.

Bobulinski stated that Biden is the “big guy,” as referenced in text messages regarding illegal financial deals, potentially implicating him in corruption.

“Joe Biden was opposed to corruption,” Democrat congressman Jamie Raskin stated.

“Really? So opposed, he leveraged a billion dollars of American tax money to fire the prosecutor in Ukraine who was investigating Zlochevsky [Mykola Zlochevsky] at Burisma, the company Hunter Biden sat on the board of?” Rep. Jim Jordan asked.

“And the prosecutor who replaced [him] … took [Zlochevsky] off the wanted list and dropped the charges,” Jordan added.

“Mr. Bobulinski, who is the big guy?” Jordan asked.

“Joe Biden,” Bobulinski said.

“Are you sure?” Jordan asked.

“I am 1000% sure.. and there are other text messages that back that up,” Bobulinski said.

Pastor who sexually abused child for nearly 7 years receives probation

CORPUS CHRISTI, Tx — William C. Robinson, a pastor working for Chi Alpha Campus Ministries in Corpus Christi, received 10 years probation after sexually abusing an underage family member.

According to his indictment, Robinson sexually abused an underage family member between July 11, 2015 and June 27, 2022. The arrest affidavit states the sexual contact with the child began when she was nine.

"The offender in this case, by his own omission and by his acts, give cause for concern for the child's safety as well as others, which warrants his apprehension," the arrest affidavit stated.

Robinson was arrested on June 11, 2022.

On March 22, Robinson appeared in the 319th District Court where he accepted a plea deal that would avoid any jail time. He pleaded guilty to one count of continuous sexual abuse of a child under 14, one count of sexual assault of a child, and three counts of indecency with a child. In exchange for his plea, Robinson received 10 years deferred adjudication. If he complies with the terms of his probation, once he serves his sentence, Robinson can have the charges removed from his record.

The judge also ordered Robinson to serve 120 hours of community service, stay away from the victim, and take parenting classes. He will have a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Plus, his internet access will be monitored.

Botswana threatens to send 20,000 elephants to "roam free" in Germany in public dispute

No.1284505 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Johannesburg — Botswana's President Mokgweetsi Masisi has threatened to send 20,000 African elephants to "roam free" in Germany in a public dispute between the nations over hunting and conservation, according to the German newspaper Bild.

Masisi's comments came in response to Germany's government saying earlier this year that it wants to restrict hunters from importing hunting trophies from Africa into Germany.

Botswana is home to roughly one-third of the world's elephant population. Germany is among the largest importers of hunting trophies in Europe, with German hunters representing a significant amount of the income used to fund sustainable conservation in many African nations.

Masisi said elephant numbers in his country had exploded as a result of conservation efforts to protect the animals, and that trophy hunting was one of the tools his country used to bring in much needed revenue while keeping elephant populations in check.

Germans should "live together with the animals, in the way you are trying to tell us to," Masisi told Bild, adding: "This is not a joke."

House Democrats introduce bill to rename Miami federal prison after Trump

No.1284884 View ViewReplyOriginalReport

After House Republicans introduced legislation to rename an airport outside of Washington, D.C., after former President Donald Trump, a group of House Democrats are now proposing a bill to rename a federal prison in Miami after Trump.

The legislation, which would rename the Miami Federal Correctional Institution in Florida as the "Donald J. Trump Federal Correctional Institution," was officially filed on Wednesday, April 3.

The move comes just days after House Republicans introduced a bill to rename Washington Dulles International Airport after the former president. The renaming efforts come in an election year when many Republicans seek to honor the presumptive nominee, while Democrats work to undercut him.

Amanda Nguyen Becomes First Vietnamese Female Astronaut After Surviving Rape At Harvard

Amanda Nguyen: Civil Rights Astronaut, 2022 TIME Woman of the Year, and 2019 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee

In 2013, after interning for NASA during her last semester at Harvard University, Amanda Nguyen was raped.

Although she took immediate action against the perpetrator by reporting the gruesome crime, lawyers warned Nguyen that it could take multiple years for her case to get taken to court.

Nguyen said: "There's a very real economic cost to violence against women. There are incredible sacrifices that survivors have to make if they want to pursue justice. I don't think that is right."

Speaking of the "broken" criminal justice system for rape survivors in the US, Nguyen said that she refused to choose between seeking justice or continuing her career as a trainee astronaut.

"No one should have to choose between justice and their career," she added.

Instead, Nguyen prioritised speaking out against the US legal system and addressing the preservation of critical evidence from rape cases.

In massive blow to Republicans: U.S. crime rate declined significantly and is still dropping

No.1280637 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
>However, the conservatively biased media is still manipulating the public to believe crime is going up to help republicans.

New FBI data confirms previous indications that crime in the U.S. declined significantly in 2023, continuing a post-pandemic trend and belying widespread perceptions that crime is rising.

The new fourth-quarter numbers showed a 13% decline in murder in 2023 from 2022, a 6% decline in reported violent crime and a 4% decline in reported property crime. That’s based on data from around 13,000 law enforcement agencies, policing about 82% of the U.S. population, that provided the FBI with data through December.

“It suggests that when we get the final data in October, we will have seen likely the largest one-year decline in murder that has ever been recorded,” said Jeff Asher, a former CIA analyst who now studies crime trends.

In October, the FBI will release its final and most comprehensive look at crime in 2023.

In a statement on Tuesday, President Joe Biden called the new numbers "good news for the American people" and touted his efforts to combat gun violence.

"Keeping communities safe is my priority," he said. "While we've made major progress, we still have more work to do."

Attorney General Merrick Garland also issued a statement praising the drop in crime and noting that, in May 2021, the Justice Department launched a strategy aimed at addressing the spike in violent crime that occurred during the pandemic.

“Since then, our prosecutors, agents, and grant-making experts have worked in close partnership with police departments and communities across the country to go after the recidivists and gangs that are responsible for the greatest violence; to seize illegal guns and deadly drugs; to make critical investments in hiring more law enforcement officers; and to fund evidence-based, community violence intervention initiatives,” he said.
