I wonder if you will ever get to see a poll conducted by the media with the following questions:
Do you think Putin would have attacked Ukraine if Trump were president?
Do you think the abandoning of Afghanistan had any impact on Putin’s decision?
Do you accept that the 40-year record high inflation and gas prices we now face is due to the pandemic and Putin?
Do you believe that the supply chain crisis is due to global issues?
Do you believe that the Mexican border crisis is being handled well?
Do you believe that Vice President Kamala Harris is taking her role seriously?
We now know that the information taken from Hunter Biden’s laptop, as first reported by the New York Post, was not “Russian disinformation.” Should the entire Biden family role in the scandal be seriously investigated on a bi-partisan basis? At least as seriously as the January 6 investigation?
Do you believe that the Durham Investigation should be given more coverage, and those found guilty in perpetrating the Russian Hoax should face prosecution to the full extent of the law?
Do you believe that the Hamas war against Israel last year, after six years of relative calm, was a result of Biden becoming president?
Do you believe that the major uptick in Arab violence in Israel is due to a tailwind supplied by the departure of the Trump administration?
Do you believe that the Pentagon’s complicity in offering $970,000 to anyone proving Israeli human rights violations, though over the protest of the Biden administration, would not have surfaced during the Trump administration?
Are you in favor of negotiations with Iran to reconsider the Obama Nuclear Deal? Do you favor removing the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization?
Are you fine with the current US Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides recently stating to J Street and others that the “growth of Israeli settlements infuriates me. It’s stupid and impedes the Two-State Solution”?
Do you think it’s fair to ask (not as a qualifying issue) if the current candidate for SOTUS, Ketanji Brown Jackson, cannot offer a definition of what a female is, then by what right is she touted as the first African American female to become a member of the Supreme Court of the United States? Who says she’s female?
Mind you, one does not have to be a Trumpster to welcome such polling – just a politically honest person. As I’ve stated in a previous article, I have developed serious concerns about a future Trump presidency. I would much rather see some other very qualified Republican candidates run successfully for the GOP ticket. But to ignore the disparity between the Trump presidency and the current president is politically criminal. Unfortunately, the media are criminals.
