The size of the crowd at Donald Trump's latest rally has come under scrutiny with people giving varied accounts about the number of people who attended it. Trump, the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party's presidential nomination, held a large rally in a Democratic borough of New York City on Thursday to drum up support ahead of November's presidential election. He told supporters at Crotona Park, South Bronx, of his potential plans for the city if he is elected to the White House. The rally had a permit for 3,500 people, according to the New York Times which cited the


Libs are still obsessing over Trump's crowd size. In the meantime, Biden can't draw flies.

Much easier to count the crowd size at one of Quid Pro Joe's rallies. If Gov Chris Chispie is there does it count as 3 people?

Standard boilerplate propaganda. The use of "presumptive" is the tipoff. Newsweek source, not credible.

Uh-oh. Charge him with misrepresenting the crowd size. Trump grossly lied about a permit for 3500 people.

It's funny they'll admit he had a large crowd, but "maybe not as big as he said". Whoopee-freaking-doo. Even if the crowd was 1/10th of the number, it's still more than Joe could draw. Bumch of clowns.

What ever the actual pro-Trump crowd size the undisputed number was the anti-Trump crowd size. Reportedly, "about a hundred." (I'll bet even less) You would think that NYC, where Hochul claims that everybody "hates Trump," could do better than that.

Think about this for a second. Are they really saying that NO ONE...nobody in the media, no one in either campaign, nobody in the government, no one in the private sector, not foreign intelligence services, ...NOBODY thought to take photos of crowd size---even just for data-gathering or verification that exist purposes? Who can believe that? Somewhere there are photos and somewhere we have a person who can count or estimate crowd size. What a crock of bee ess to pretend nobody knows.

Ask your friends at the FBI. They seem very interested in who attends these events, so no doubt have an accurate count (less paid informants) and the ID of anyone who looked active.

Republican businessman Tim Sheehy won the GOP primary for Senate in Montana, Decision Desk HQ projects, as he looks to flip Democrat Sen. Jon Tester’s seat in the red state. Tester’s seat is seen as key to Republicans’ hopes of winning the Senate majority this fall. Former President Trump and Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who is chairing the Senate Republican campaign team, have both thrown their weight behind ex-NAVY Seal and political newcomer Sheehy. He came under scrutiny this spring over a gunshot wound after the Washington Post highlighted inconsistent accounts of the incident that caused it. Sheehy avoided a

The unveiling is the culmination of a competition to redesign the flag and state seal to replace one that showed native peoples being driven off their land. The final design for the flag was modified from a submission by Andrew Prekker. "The new flag and seal reflect all Minnesotans and showcase the features of our state that we can all recognize – the

National Democrats are deep into the planning for the convention in Chicago to be held in August. Biden's planning team is looking wistfully at the 2020 COVID convention when most events were virtual and the chances for disruption were greatly reduced. They are looking for ways to duplicate some of those events, like the pre-recorded roll call vote where individuals representing state delegations got creative and made their video vote an advertisement for their state. One big change being considered is a move to an alternate convention site for the actual nomination. Since Biden is having trouble getting on the

American men are opting out of the workforce at unforeseen rates. For many, it's not an issue of not being able to find a job. They have simply opted out altogether. The Bureau of Labor Statistics found only 89 percent of working age men have a job or are actively looking for work. In 1950, that number was at 97 percent. While the early 1950s saw around 96 percent of working age American men between the ages of 25 and 54 working full or part-time jobs, that proportion has now moved to just 86 percent, according to the Bureau of

WASHINGTON — Facing mounting political pressure over the migrant influx at the U.S. southern border, President Joe Biden on Tuesday signed an executive order that will temporarily shut down asylum requests once the average number of daily encounters tops 2,500 between official ports of entry, according to a senior administration official. The shutdown would go into effect immediately since that threshold has already been met, a senior administration official said. The border would reopen only once that number falls to 1,500. The president’s order would come under the Immigration and Nationality Act sections 212(f) and 215(a) suspending entry of noncitizens who cross the southern border into the United States unlawfully.

Biden is set to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion alongside other world leaders and deliver remarks focused on democracy and freedom, a major tentpole of his reelection bid.

Lancet‘s guidelines encourage writers to embrace gender identity instead of biological sex. “Sex and gender are often incorrectly portrayed as binary (female/male or woman/man), concordant, and static,” says the guidelines. Therefore, those submitting articles “should use the term ‘sex assigned at birth’ rather than ‘biological sex,’ ‘birth sex’ or ‘natal sex’ as it is more accurate and inclusive.” Inclusive for whom? (Rhetorical question. I know the answer. The men pretending to be females) The Lancet claims “there is no single, universally agreed-upon set of guidelines for defining sex and gender or reporting sex-based and gender based analyses.”

Benjamin Netanyahu has something in common with Garth Brooks -- he has 'friends' in low places. In an interview with Time Magazine, Joe Biden addressed a number of issues, although just how much Biden addressed them may be up for some debate. Biden insists that he is one of Israel's greatest friends, and at least in the days after October 7, Biden appeared to have determination to act like a friend. These days, however, Biden's party has fractured on the war that Hamas started with those brutal massacres, rapes, and kidnappings.
