    The fifth Annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism, Communism, and Collectivism has been released by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC). The news is not good if these findings are to be looked upon as the direction in which our country is going. Capitalists beware, Socialism is gaining in popularity, especially among the younger generations.On information gathering, it is described as the following: “The report, polled by internationally recognized research and data firm YouGov, synthesizes data from 2,100 representative U.S. respondents ages 16 and older, and the margin of error is plus or minus 2.32%.” Socialism is...

    President Trump recalled his interview with “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl was “fake and biased,” according to Fox News. I am pleased to inform you that, for the sake of accuracy in reporting, I am considering posting my interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, PRIOR TO AIRTIME! This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about… — Donald J.

    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.
  • Most Voters Who Went Third Party in 2016 Are Backing Biden Over Trump This Year

    A sizable share of Americans eschewed the major-party dichotomy and voted for third-party candidates in 2016, helping deliver the White House to President Donald Trump. But four years later, almost all of the likely voters who opted against both the Republican and Democratic nominees last time around aren’t planning to do so again, Morning Consult Political Intelligence tracking shows — and a slim majority are siding with former Vice President Joe Biden. Daily tracking of likely voters conducted Oct. 16-18 found 53 percent of likely voters who opted for someone other than a major-party nominee in 2016 said they’re backing...

    Trump just keeps on keeping his promises. – True to his promise made yesterday, President Donald Trump tweeted out the full, unedited version of his interview with old “60 Minutes” hack Lesley Stahl earlier today. This is a very wise move by the President, given that he know “60 Minutes'” habit of heavily editing its interviews of not just Trump, but any Republican in order to portray them as negatively as possible. CBS also edits these interviews to cover up the sorry behavior of their own fake journalists, so Stahl is seen live and unedited in all her vicious, rude...

    A granddaughter of the Rev. Billy Graham, Jerushah Duford is a committed evangelical Christian who describes herself as “pro-life.” For most of her life, she voted Republican. Yet this year, she is voting for Joe Biden and is encouraging fellow Christians to distance themselves from a president who she says is trying “to hijack our faith for votes.”

    Just one more reason to thank John Ratcliffe. – The FBI did everything it could to influence both the 2016 and 2018 election cycles in favor of the Democrats with largely exaggerated claims about Russian interference, and completely fabricated claims that they made those efforts in coordination with the 2016 Trump Campaign and 2018 Trump Administration. That is a matter of historical fact. Given that history, can anyone doubt that Christopher Wray, who led the raging dumpster fire agency’s 2018 Russia collusion smear effort, was about to do it all over again yesterday, just 12 days prior to Election Day?...

    Because real, actual voting data is better than polling data. – Our good friend and frequent contributor Larry Schweikart has a terrific piece over at UncoverDC.com this morning, covering a multitude of early voting data. Here’s an excerpt: In yesterday’s [Florida] Vote By Mail, the Democrats continued to add ballots—at a rate of about 3% per day. A poster to www.freerepublic.com, “SpeedyinTexas,” has been working off assumptions based on 81% Democrat turnout and 2016 numbers that put the Democrats’ target for VBMs at a lead of 653,000. That would overcome the 2016 Trump advantage and the anticipated Republican lead in...

    The pandemic is accelerating as the United States climbs the third peak of Covid-19 infections that public health experts have been warning about, the latest NBC News analysis revealed Wednesday. In the last two weeks, the 781,142 confirmed cases of coronavirus reported nationwide was an 18.5 percent jump over the previous two weeks, the figures showed. And in four of the last seven days there were more than 60,000 cases reported -- something that has not happened since the end of July.

    In the short term, should Joe Biden win the election and move into the White House, he would take office with a Democratic Party unified in its opposition to all things Trump. The question is how long would that last before leaders of every liberal interest group circling the new administration begin to get restless. In answer to this question, Carter Eskew, a top strategist on Al Gore’s 2000 campaign, wrote by email that Biden became a unity candidate in response to an overwhelming, almost feral desire to limit Trump’s damage to one term. When Trump leaves, Democratic unity, I...
  • Don’t You Dare: CNN’s Brian Stelter Defends Media ‘Ethics’ on Russia Collusion Hoax (with pompous pic)

    Breitbart ^ | 10/21/2020 | Joel B. Pollack
    CNN reporter Brian Stelter lost his temper during a BBC Radio 4 roundtable at the suggestion that mainstream media newsrooms had shown poor ethics and a double standard in their breathless reporting of the “Russia collusion” hoax. The panel discussion discussed censorship of the recent story about Hunter Biden’s emails, which many newsrooms ignored and the Silicon Valley social media companies actively suppressed. Stelter supported the suppression, saying that the tech companies needed to do more of it.

If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar. “In fact, the NY Post today reports ‘it looks to me like an exaggeration through editing.’ As soon as I realized it was a set up I called the police. “This is an effort to blunt my relentless exposure of the criminality and depravity of Joe Biden and his entire family. “Deadline...

    Another game-changer from the Trump Campaign. – At a massive rally in Eerie, PA last night, the Trump Campaign rolled out a big surprise for the Quid Pro China Joe Biden campaign: A huge video screen on which the President played a compilation of all the times Biden and his designated successor-in-waiting, Kamala Harris, promised to ban fracking in the United States. It was a pretty long video clip, and those were just the time they promised to kill America’s oil and gas industry while on live TV. Think of all the times they’ve made the same promise in private,...

    ...The two attacks on opposite sides of Africa are among the scores of violent episodes to shake the continent in what experts are calling a breakout year for extremist groups affiliated with al-Qaeda or the Islamic State. .... The spike in terrorist attacks mirrors a steady, if less dramatic, increase in Islamist violence in parts of Syria and Iraq, driven by Islamic State fighters who slipped away after the caliphate’s defeat and have now regrouped.... The resurgence threatens to undermine one facet of President Trump’s reelection pitch to voters: his oft-repeated claim of victory over the Islamic State. ...The rise...

    Fed up with white people calling 911 about people of color selling water bottles, barbecuing or otherwise going about their lives, San Francisco leaders unanimously approved hate crime legislation giving the targets of those calls the ability to sue the caller. The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday on the Caution Against Racial and Exploitative Non-Emergencies Act, also known as the CAREN legislation. It’s a nod to a popular meme using the name “Karen” to describe an entitled white woman whose actions stem from her privilege, such as using police to target people of color. All 11 supervisors signed on to...

    Cancer-stricken talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh provided listeners a somber update on his condition Monday after recent scans showed “some progression of cancer,” which he said is “not dramatic” but still a step in the wrong direction. “It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over,” Limbaugh continued. “Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical...

    The Biden campaign is taking flack for a recent television ad featuring a struggling Michigan bar owner that the ad neglects to mention is actually an affluent veteran tech investor who donated to the Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign. Joe Malcoun, who is introduced in the ad as the “co-owner” of The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, Mich., backed Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s stringent lockdown orders that kept businesses shuttered for months but says he blames President Trump’s administration for his business’s pandemic woes. the ad does not mention Malcoun’s other business ventures, including being an “angel investor” in several...
