    Mayor Proposes Cutting 614 Positions From Chicago PD If Federal Stimulus Doesn’t Get Approved Holly Matkin Chicago, IL – Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has proposed a budget plan that includes eliminating over 600 positions within the city’s police department as part of an effort to offset the unprecedented $1.2 billion shortfall anticipated for next year. Lightfoot said that eliminating 1,921 vacant positions within city government would save a total of $106 million, WBBM reported. Over half of the jobs she plans to slash would be tied to the Chicago Police Department (CPD), which would see a loss of 614 positions...

  • With time running out, Trump to launch attacks on Biden's family at debate

    NASHVILLE (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to come out swinging in Thursday's final presidential debate with Democratic rival Joe Biden to try to close a gap in opinion polls before an election 12 days away. Trump needs to score some hits in the televised encounter to steady a campaign that is struggling, in part due to his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 221,000 people in the United States. Trump, a Republican, trails former vice president Biden significantly in national polls ahead of Election Day, Nov. 3, though the contest is much tighter...

    Dozens of voters in a heavily Democratic county in Florida and across several states reported receiving emails on Tuesday purporting to come from a right-wing group threatening to "come after" them unless they vote for President Trump. But an examination of the messages, which are now under investigation by state and federal authorities, shows they were sent via servers located overseas, raising questions about their origin amid concerns about voter intimidation just two weeks before Election Day.
  • Jill Biden says Americans ‘don’t want to hear about’ Hunter-Joe deals (Video)

    New Yok Post ^ | Oct 22, 2020 | By Ebony Bowden
    Jill Biden was allowed to brush off The Post’s bombshell reporting on son Hunter Biden’s business dealings as “smears” and “distractions” in a softball interview on “The View” — even as evidence mounted that her husband, Democratic nominee Joe Biden, was heavily involved. In an interview on the ABC daytime talk show on Wednesday, the former second lady did not deny the allegations that her scandal-scarred stepson tried to leverage his family connections to land lucrative deals with overseas executives. But she also insisted the American people didn’t care about the Biden family’s murky deals with energy companies in Ukraine...

  • Biden Whistleblower Emails: Chinese Energy Company Gave $5 Million Non-Secured, Forgivable Loan to Biden ‘Family’

    Breitbart ^ | 10/22/2020 | MATTHEW BOYLE
    A 2017 email from a top official with a Chinese energy firm, provided by a whistleblower to U.S. Senate investigators, demonstrates the terms of an agreement included officials with the firm giving a $5 million non-secured, forgivable loan to the Biden “family.” “In a way, this would give CEFC greater leverage over the Biden family than simply giving them a gift or bribe because if they were dissatisfied with what the Bidens were doing they could ask for their money back,” Schweizer told Breitbart News when asked about the arrangement upon the public release of Bobulinski’s emails. The email also...
  • Trump Supporters in Puerto Rico Hold Caravan

    (Translation) San Juan, Oct. 18 (EFE).- Supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump in Puerto Rico held this Sunday a caravan throughout [the capital] San Juan to show their endorsement for a second term, despite the [island's] residents being unable to vote in [the] November 3 [presidential] election while being U.S. citizens. Since July 25, 1952, Puerto Rico defines itself as a U.S. Commonwealth, a status that confers some autonomy thanks to its own constitution but leaves under Washington's control certain matters such as borders, defense, diplomatic relations, or currency. Puerto Ricans [in the island] cannot vote for President because, according...

I thik folks are pretty tired of the bitterness and hate, and Kam. didn't relieve them.... "The emails purported to be Hunter Biden’s on that abandoned laptop have been verified by one recipient. They’re real and they’re spectacularly damning, according to Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden."Another email begs for answers from Joe Biden’s vice-presidential running mate, Sen.

    The American Mind ^ | 10/07/20 | The Editors
    The greatest question of all concerning 2020 is whether we as a nation still have a desire to settle questions on their merits, by way of representative government, at the ballot box, or whether we wish to be a country where force and coercion rules—and where a permanent political class rules no matter who you vote for, and pulls out all the stops to make extra sure. The last four years have seen much of the bipartisan Washington establishment act as wild-eyed conspiracy theorists, while engaging in first a surreptitious, and now an open conspiracy to ensure the 2020 presidential...

    I'm listening to an author who has been banned by Amazon and YouTube, E. Michael Jones. He's big in the original thinking biz, really, just reading anyone who's anyone and collating the results. He talks about Oligarchs being in charge of what we think.At a certain video interview,, queued to about 19 minutes, you can't link, Jones is banned on YouTube. So, Dr Jones is talking about how science has co-opted ultimate reality. He's asking how Anthony Fauci still is in charge after some scandal or debacle he was apparently responsible for, foisting something called AZT onto poor AIDS...

    YouTube ^ | 10/11/20 | Fr. Ed Meeks
    This is a link to a critically important message regarding “Catholic” Joe Biden. It is delivered by Fr. Ed Meeks showing point-by-point how diametrically opposed Joe Biden, along with the Democratic party, is to the clear teachings of the Church (and Bible). He speaks to Catholics, but this is one of the clearest messages delineating what the “Abyss” really looks like. His message is critically important to ALL Christians. Keep in mind you won’t hear this from the controlling liberal leftist media, or from the leftist debate moderators, so it is extremely important to quickly spread the word to others.
