CONCESSION SPEECH

Matt Blaze

Daniel, here’s the thing. If a sitting president is immune from prosecution, yet he’s still able to be pardoned, it’s effectively saying he is above the law, because when you accept a pardon you are admitting to the crime. But you see… I heard that ‘no man is above the law’.

MAD IDEA: If a sitting president can’t be prosecuted, a former president shouldn’t be pardoned.

Former Army Green Beret has pleaded guilty to conspiring with Russian intelligence operatives to provide them with United States national defense information. One down.. many more to go

Electric shocks to the tongue can quiet chronic ringing ears
Hubert Lim, a biomedical engineer at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, hit on the role of the tongue in tinnitus by accident.
Tinnitus—a constant ringing or buzzing in the ears that affects about 15% of people—is difficult to understand and even harder to treat. Now, scientists have shown shocking the tongue—combined with a carefully designed sound program—can reduce symptoms of the disorder, not just while patients are being treated, but up to 1 year later.

Trump’s Taxes Give Biden Blueprint to Fix System Rigged for Rich
Rich Americans and a small army of sophisticated advisers have perfected the art of tax avoidance: Wealthy families set up complex trusts, private pensions, and life insurance schemes to lower their taxes. Silicon Valley startups valued in the billions of dollars grab tax breaks meant for small businesses. Multinational corporations shift profits to overseas tax havens. Add it up and, according to one estimate, billionaires now pay lower overall tax rates than working-class Americans hovering above the poverty line.
