    Town Hall ^ | Oct 21, 2020 | Julio Rosas
    "Wow" was all I was able to say as the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Blackhawk flew alongside the U.S.-Mexico border and the difference between the old "wall" system and the new wall system under construction came into view... The old "wall" that covers large lengths of the border is laughably easy to get over. It consists of barbed wire fencing, held together by fragile-looking wooden posts and Normandy barriers intended to stop illegal vehicle crossings. "I think you can see for's a political narrative, right? They want to score some political points by saying, 'Oh, it's just...

    Washington Times ^ | Oct 21, 2020
    Trump campaign officials are counting on Republican voter-registration gains in key swing states and a massive ground game that has volunteers knocking on 3 million doors per week to overcome Democrat Joseph R. Biden’s lead in public polls in the final two weeks of the race.

    A recent report in Florida shows that over 40% of the state’s Covid-19 deaths may not merit that classification. According to Dr. Andrew Bostom at a Florid House of Representatives report covered an investigation of the COVID-19 deaths reported in Florida: The Florida House investigators stressed that “nearly 60% [8,058/13.920] of the [COVID-19] records classified by the Department of Health,” had “errors,” or were “recorded in a manner inconsistent with state and national guidance.” They also provided evidence, as noted earlier, that ~10% [1,256] of these alleged Covid-19 deaths were misclassified.I maintain this latter ~10% estimate is far too...

    Last week, the Associated Press published a story, without any real data, that Trump’s support at The Villages is waning. They interviewed a handful of people and declared the retirement community a warning sign for Trump, that he’s losing the senior vote. Sumter County, home of The Villages retirement community, reported early votes this evening. 71.2% of the early votes were cast by registered Republicans. 16.1% cast by Democrats.

    A record-breaking surge of mail-voting Democrats in Florida has handed Joe Biden a massive lead over President Donald Trump in his must-win home state. But here come the Republicans. The start of in-person voting Monday is expected to trigger a conservative wave that will build over the next two weeks and crest on Election Day. Around two-thirds of participating Florida GOP voters are likely to cast a ballot in person this fall, raising the question of whether Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, will be able to hold off a Trump comeback by the time the polls close at 7 p.m....

    Early voting data is showing positive signs for President Donald Trump and some troubling signs for Joe Biden.Start off with the basic principle that there is expected to be more early, mail-in voting with Democrats, and more in-person, Election Day voting with Republicans voting for Trump. So, one should expect the numbers of the early voting to weigh heavily in favor of the Democrats. Now, some states are tracking along like that.But in some of the key states, turns out that isn’t the case, as NBC notes in their tracking of the early vote citing Target Smart. In Texas, which...

    American ^ | October 18, 2020 | Janet Levy
    A recent study conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute found that 67% of American Jewish respondents planned to vote for Joe Biden and 30% for President Trump. Eighty-eight percent of those surveyed claimed to be pro-Israel and 64% said Israel is an important election issue. Most ranked Biden higher on U.S.-Israel relations, the handling of anti-Semitism, and ensuring the security of the Jewish community. The survey results are surprising, given Trump’s stellar record on Jews and Israel. American Jews must reconsider, for Biden’s record and positions on critical topics belie these perceptions. Record on IsraelBiden’s record should dispel any notions...
