Yes, ladies and gentlemen, only 14 more days to the big November election and it really does look like yet more of the Trumpworld is dying or collapsing. Just look at all the breaking proof.

--The Arctic and Siberia and elsewhere hit high temperatures of OVER 100 DEGREES for the first time in recorded history
--California has had a record 4 million acres of it burn this year with, again, drought and record high temperatures and now
--Colorado is in the midst of its largest ever area burning in wildfires
So with all this alone, shall we do something, some things on and about climate change and global warming?
At what point do we do something? At what point do we learn?
Here you are, folks. Another one, this weekend, 2 days ago. Another conservative, yet another, coming out FOR Joe Biden and against Donald J "Jenius" Trump. This time it's from Michael Gerson.
Besides p*ssing off the "libs", which we know is so very important to Trump's supporters, what is he, this President Trump, doing right or well for America, anyway? As just one example, there's this:

Great, even important op/ed piece today from The New York Times.
"...the Trump campaign is in trouble. Polls show the president down by significant numbers, and the voters he has been trying to suppress are turning out in droves. Today Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, a Republican, issued a statement saying he 'cannot support Donald Trump for President,' and the Biden campaign announced that it raised an eye-popping $383 million in September alone, a historic record which comes on top of the historic record of $364.5 million it set in August. This means Biden has $432 million on hand for the last month of the election."
And by "last month of the election", if this is all based on this week, it's actually the last 2 weeks of the election. Even better, of course.

This President Trump and Senator Mitch "Moscow Mitch" McConnell, at least, are helping insure Republican Party failure November 4 in this election. This is one more way they're making it happen. This story broke 2 days ago.
Without support from McConnell and at least some of his Republican caucus, no deal that the White House makes with Pelosi stands any reasonable chance of becoming law.
So thanks, Mr. President.
Thanks, Senator McConnell.
Y'all are terrific.

Did you see these today, this morning?
A bit from the article:A bipartisan coalition of Christians is forming a political action committee that aims to weaken President Trump’s standing with evangelical voters.
The super PAC, Not Our Faith, plans a six-figure ad buy targeting evangelical and Catholic voters in Pennsylvania and Michigan, The Associated Press reported.
The ad accuses the president of exploiting Christian rhetoric and iconography for self-serving purposes, specifically citing his photo opportunity outside of St. John’s Episcopal Church earlier this year after police cleared Lafayette Square with tear gas and pepper spray.
That is fantastic and incredible and, of course, so true. Between this, with Christians forming organizations to defeat this sitting President and then all of the Republicans and groups they've formed to also defeat him, things are looking good. Things are looking very good for us to do just that, defeat him in this election.
And then there's this.
While this last one is disgusting and goes against the Pentagon and good rules and decency and so much more, the good side is that it show this President, this Republican Party President Donald J Trump for the conman and liar and cheat he is and always has been. It's just like this one this week.
I can't believe what I'm seeing today from Trump on Facebook. It's stunning. This is out there today, now.Volunteer to be a Trump Election Poll Watcher. Sign up today!
True then, all that long ago. Still true, even more so, today.

Know this, ladies and gentlemen.George Takei @GeorgeTakei·
From 2015 to 2017, Mitch McConnell refused to seat any of Obama’s 100+ federal judges. Then he raced to fill them after Trump was elected. They did the same with Merrick Garland’s seat.
Don’t @ me with your “court packing.”
Let’s talk about court UNPACKING.

I'm going there.
We're three weeks out from saving our Democracy. Our Social Security. Our health care. Our freedom of speech. Our peace of mind, spirit and body. We're three weeks out from either voting for probably the most despicable display of a human I've ever witnessed. Trump or a true American who wants to and has saved this country from catastrophe.
Trump, a "man," and using that description very loosely, who has filed bankruptcy six times. Who has had three marriages. Who is a cheater. A serial liar. A conman. A racist. A misogynist. Truly, a despicable human being. Could not care less about you. His word. His promises. Think about it. What promises has he kept?
And, somehow, this disgusting, vile person got in our White House. Additionally, he is sabotaging and killing the very core and spirit of this country. He has promoted white supremacy and is the leader and head of that gang. He gives them the green light to forge ahead by telling them to "stand by." He has called Latinos "rapists and killers and thieves."
He is the lowest form of any example of a good human.
He holds rallies while sick, not caring how that may affect his supporters but cares only about the attention and acollades these ridiculous, blinded followers still throw his way. It's truly astounding.
All that said, Joe Biden is a good man. He's a good human. He would not have been my first choice for the Democratic Party nomination but he's a good man. And he knows how to govern this country. He will hold us up, united. He will fold us back in with our allies. He and President Obama saved this country from a very trying time when we were facing a recession which would have devastated this country. They turned it around and saved this country. Whether you like Biden or not, that is a fact. Trump was given the gift of that good, strong economy from Biden/Obama. That is a fact.
If you value your Social Security. If you value your preexisting conditions. If you value your family. If you value this country and its unity and truly becoming the truly "united" states once again ... there is only one choice.

Did you see this in the news?
From the article:Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday said he has not been to the White House in more than two months, suggesting that the Trump administration's lax COVID-19 protocols make him feel unsafe.
The Kentucky Republican said that since early August he's instead opted to speak with President Donald Trump by phone.
"I actually haven't been to the White House since August the 6th because my impression was their approach to how to handle this was different than mine and what I insisted that we do in the Senate, which is to wear a mask and practice social distancing," McConnell said at an event in Kentucky.
Seems this President Trump was offered to have a virtual debate with Joe Biden and he turned it down. He won't appear. It seems clear and obvious he felt he couldn't shout down and interrupt so he wanted no part of it. Then this happened, too.
Anyone who's paying attention politically now is or should be concerned from now to November 3, especially, and then from that time to January 20. It seems clear this President is already rather "melting down." I'm afraid it's only going to get worse and more so as we get closer to these dates.
How bizarre that we are and must be concerned about our nation due to the man who is supposed to be leading us all.
More proof, as though we need it.
Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday night joined President Donald Trump in refusing to commit to ensuring a peaceful transfer of power, dodging a question about how he would handle a Joe Biden victory and parroting Trump's baseless narrative about widespread mail-in voting fraud.
I saw this headline of this article from the magazine Psychology Today and was taken aback.
Perhaps that thought arose last week as you watched the cringe-worthy presidential debate, which pundits have called "a disgrace" and "an embarrassment for the ages." Our public discourse has been in decline for so long that it was bound to come to this, right? Effective self-government requires an intelligent and engaged public, and it seems the American electorate falls woefully short. With large segments of the population brazenly rejecting facts and science – whether the issue is climate change, evolution, the coronavirus, or the latest conspiracy theory – it's no surprise that social and political dysfunction are rampant.
Seen this way, it’s tempting to chalk up the clown car of American democracy to the collective intellectual deficit of its population. In truth, however, there is little evidence to support the notion that the American people are stupid. Objective measurements of intelligence can be controversial, raising questions of true objectivity and cultural bias, but it is difficult to find any that suggest Americans are lacking in IQ compared to those in other countries.
