    newsweek.com ^ | 9/8/20
    President Donald Trump's approval rating does not appear to have been impacted by controversy in the wake of a recent Atlantic article claiming he had repeatedly made disparaging remarks about U.S. military members. Trump's job approval rating hit 47 percent in a Hill-HarrisX poll released Tuesday, his highest rating in the poll since June. The poll was conducted online among 2,832 registered voters from September 5 to 8. It has a margin of error of 1.84 percent. Republicans approved of Trump by an 81 percent majority, while 19 percent disapproved. Democrats had nearly opposite ratings, with 82 percent disapproving and...

    CNN appears to have altered a widely-seen photograph of Joe Biden with his young son to remove the logo of the Washington Redskins. The Democratic nominee and former vice president initially shared the photo in June to commemorate Father's Day.

    Anyone who disagrees with this fact is anti-white, anti-American, anti-Western and doesn’t believe in law and order or a solid work ethic. If anything, Trump is sympathetic since he saluted a Commie General once.
  • A majority of Americans think social media sites are politically biased: Report

    Yahoo Finance ^ | Danile Howley
    Americans increasingly believe social media companies like Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR) are censoring political speech despite a lack of any hard evidence of such bias. According to a recent survey of 4,708 U.S. adults conducted by the Pew Research Center between June 16 and June 22, 73% of respondents say that it is somewhat or very likely that social media sites purposely censor political viewpoints they find objectionable. The survey results come at a fraught time for social networks like Twitter and Facebook as they attempt to clamp down on misinformation and foreign interference ahead of the 2020 elections,...

    Well, that didn’t take long. A non-White American citizen born right here in the United States has gotten a spot on the Democratic presidential ticket, and the birthers have come scurrying out from whatever rock they have been living under since Barack Obama left office. Within hours of former vice president Joe Biden’s announcement Wednesday of his history-making running mate, once-reputable Newsweek posted a story posing “Some Questions for Kamala Harris About Eligibility.” The author, John Eastman, a conservative law professor, wrote that “some” are “questioning” whether Harris might be “constitutionally ineligible” to be vice president because, should she have...
  • Women say they will fight sexism, ‘ugly’ attacks on Harris [barf]

    Dissociated Press ^ | August 12, 2020 | Sara Burnett and Amanda Seitz
    In the weeks before Joe Biden named Sen. Kamala Harris his running mate, women’s groups were readying a campaign of their own: shutting down sexist coverage and disinformation about a vice presidential nominee they say is headed for months of false smears and “brutal” attacks from internet haters. The groups put the media on notice in recent days that they will call out bias — one campaign is dubbed “We Have Her Back” — and established a “war room” to refute sexist or false attacks as they happen. They didn’t have to wait long. Within minutes of the presumptive Democratic...
  • Trump trounces Biden in campaign site traffic, thanks to far-right outlets

    08/11/2020 8:47:58 AM PDT · by MNDude · 42 replies
    Traffic to President Trump's presidential campaign website is more than 4x greater than traffic to Joe Biden's presidential campaign website, thanks in large part to traffic referrals from right-wing outlets like The Gateway Pundit and Citizen Free Press, according to data from SimilarWeb. Why it matters: The data speaks to the enormous role the far-right web plays in promoting the president's ideas and his re-election campaign. Web traffic to campaign websites is important because it can help campaigns fundraise, sell merchandise, and rally enthusiasm amongst voters. Details: Nearly 60% of traffic to Trump's website from May to July of this...
  • ViacomCBS is Meddling in the Presidential Election

    American Thinker.com ^ | August 9, 2020 | Roger Aronoff
    While mainstream media organizations continue to worry about foreign meddling in our last election and the next one, we should take a look at how they themselves are meddling. Without letting any of the media off the hook, the ViacomCBS behemoth deserves special consideration. The threat from its meddling in the upcoming presidential election is a case study of a multi-headed media organization's direct practice of attempting to defeat one candidate and help boost and cover for the other. Anything Russia did in the last election, or any of the last 20 elections, pales in comparison. These days, the company...

    The Lincoln Project, a GOP anti-Trump group, on Wednesday launched a $4 million ad buy targeting Senate contests in Maine, Alaska and Montana. The buy, which was first reported by Axios, will air for seven to 10 days in key markets in the three states. The ads in Alaska and Maine express support for challengers to Republican incumbent Sens. Steve Daines (Mont.) and Dan Sullivan (Alaska). The spots are dubbed "Real" in Alaska and "Strong" in Montana. The group endorsed Democrat Al Gross in its ad in Alaska ahead of the state's Democratic and independent primary on Aug. 18. Meanwhile,...

    Friday in a preview an interview that will air Sunday, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace pushed back on President Donald Trump’s claim that Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden does not support defunding police departments. (snip) Wallace said, “Liberal Democrats have been running cities in this country for decades.” Trump said, “Poorly.” Wallace said, “Why is it so bad right now?” Trump answered, “They run them poorly, it was always bad, but now it’s gotten totally out of control, and it’s really because they want to defund the police and Biden wants to defund the police.” Wallace interjected,...

    Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), says the idea of firing or demoting Dr. Anthony Fauci is “unimaginable.” “This is a remarkable scientist who has led NIH’s efforts in infectious disease with great distinction for more than 30 years, and who continues to be our lead in vaccines and therapeutics for Covid-19,” Collins told STAT News on Friday. “The idea of losing that leadership at this critical moment for our nation is unthinkable.” Fauci currently serves as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is part of NIH.

    President Trump’s 4th of July remarks at Mount Rushmore, drew sharp criticism for what some deemed to be “divisive.” Companies have changed their logos, sports teams like the Washington Redskins are seriously considering name changes, and monuments and flags dedicated to Confederate leaders are being removed. Trump accused those demanding change of trying to wipe away history and criticized the media for labeling their opponents as “racist.” Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci blasted Trump’s rhetoric. Trump is “doubling and tripling down on full-on racism,” Scaramucci said “Just go read transcripts of the speeches he gave over the weekend....

    Social media users have condemned merchandise promoting President Donald Trump's re-election campaign, saying it is reminiscent of Nazi imagery. Available for both men and women, a 100-percent cotton T-shirt retailing for $30 carries the words "America First" above an image of an eagle looking to its left with spread out wings and its talons holding a circular version of the American flag. Available on Trump's re-election campaign website, the product description says that it is "proudly made in the USA" and appeals to would-be buyers to show their support for re-electing the incumbent president, with the message: "Let everyone know...

    Twitch, a streaming platform owned by Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos, has temporarily banned President Trump’s account for “hateful conduct” stemming from footage of the president’s speeches. “Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch. In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed,” a Twitch spokesperson told Fox News. A rebroadcast of Trump’s 2015 campaign launch -- when he famously criticized people crossing the Mexican border to illegally enter the United States -- and comments Trump made at his recent Tulsa rally...

    Clifford Wagner, an 80-year-old Republican in Tucson, Ariz., never cared for President Trump. He supported Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential primary race and cast a protest vote in the general election for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee. An Air Force veteran, Mr. Wagner described the Trump presidency as a mortifying experience: His friends in Europe and Japan tell him the United States has become “the laughingstock of the world.” This year, Mr. Wagner said he would register his opposition to Mr. Trump more emphatically than he did in 2016. He plans to vote for Joseph R. Biden Jr., the...
