"Gunmen Shoot Police For No Reason"

Of course there was a reason! All the media coverage of cops always the bad guys, that any black person killed by a cop was killed unnecessarily, that blacks are being held down by the system and so on. All of this gets in people's heads, some more than others. Just like that QAnon idiot who thought that a pizza store in Washington, D.C. was harboring pedophiles with kids imprisoned in the basement drove him to drive up there to set them free.

Sometimes, it seems that the world is crumbling around us.

Gunmen Shoot Police For No Reason? More likely it’s a cry of desperation.

Let’s compare:

In response to a horrific and unprovoked attack on police:

Trump tweets:

“ Animals that must be hit hard!”

Simple, brutish, hateful, and no compassion for the officers affected. What is his goal here? To appeal to his simple-minded base and provoke further violence.

Worst President ever.

Biden tweets:

“This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice. Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished. Jill and I are keeping the deputies and their loved ones in our hearts and praying for a full recovery.”

Spot on. Very appropriate. What a contrast. There is no comparison.

Thanks for highlighting this Mish. Though I’m sure there will be plenty of Trump supporters on your site who will say Trump’s statement was the better one. So much hate in America.

We don't know the affiliations of the gunmen. Could be right wing. Trump knows though

Trump will self destruct in the next month but he will still do things to steal the election.

My simple way to figure if the Usd is 'over or under' valued - where is the euro trading in terms of Usd/Dem? Right now it looks to be roughly a 1.65 handle. This is pretty much in the middle of the range from the late 80s to early 00s. Usd/Jpy has been in the same range for nearly 35 years and is also in the middle/low-middle of that range.

So no, the Usd is not at an extreme point or even close to one.
