  • Karl Rove: Trump campaign should focus on the economy, not Hunter Biden

    Fox ^ | 10/22/2020 | Talia Kaplan
    With less than two weeks left before the 2020 presidential election, former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove said it would be more “effective” for the Trump campaign to focus on the economy as opposed to the Hunter Biden “scandal.” Rove made the statement on “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday shortly after Trump 2020 Campaign National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley appeared on the program and explained the campaign strategy to focus on Hunter Biden and his international business dealings to attack Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
  • FLASHBACK: 1999 FreeRepublic thread, started by "A Book Writer" (Jeffrey Toobin)

    10/21/2020 1:56:02 PM PDT · by dead · 24 replies
    From Archive.org's Wayback machine, just an old nugget for giggles. Toobin showed up here and asked Freepers "for information" but most of us figured out what he was really doing. He was never going to investigate anything Freepers provided (and in 1999, we had a lot!). He was only fishing for the most outrageous things he could quote in his Clinton apologia and contend that everybody aligned against that dirty old rapist was some kind of right wing lunatic. Of course, I never read his book, but somebody confirmed that any mention of FR was concerning the dark forces aligned...

    The Spectator ^ | October 20, 2020 | Lee Smith
    That’s the title of The Spectator Oct. 20th article, which stated in part: Jeffrey Toobin is a man much wronged. On Monday, the New Yorker writer was suspended by the magazine for which he’s written for two decades, and took a leave of absence from CNN, where’s he served as a legal affairs analyst since 2002. What possible sin could he have committed that forced these pillars of the media establishment to sideline a bonafide star with the presidential election less than two weeks away and Team Joe Biden needing every hand on deck? Toobin masturbated during a Zoom video...

    President Trump has delivered on some important issues. If Roe v. Wade is overturned in the next decade, his appointment of conservative justices will be a cause of a great advance in human rights. He signed a law that included some of the tax relief for parents I’ve been advocating for 15 years, and eliminated the individual mandate that was the most objectionable feature of Obamacare. Whether we’re talking about religious liberty, school choice, or Title IX, Trump’s policies are much better than those of Joe Biden. On many issues, Trump has far exceeded the expectations I had when he...

    Vice ^ | October 19, 2020 | Laura Wagner
    The New Yorker has suspended reporter Jeffrey Toobin. Sources tell VICE it’s because he exposed himself during a Zoom call last week between members of the New Yorker and WNYC radio. Toobin said in a statement to Motherboard: “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.” “I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” he added. New Yorker spokesperson Natalie Raabe said: “Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate...
  • Artist behind ‘Y.M.C.A.’ Trump parody challenges president to dance-off

    New York Post ^ | October 10,2020 | Isabel Vincent
    The artist and activist who calls himself Dee Dee Plorable wants to challenge President Trump to a dance-off. To that end, he’s created a parody of the wildly popular disco anthem “Y.M.C.A.” — substituting M.A.G.A., the acronym for Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The Trump campaign recently played the Village People’s 1978 hit at some of their campaign rallies, but now Dee Dee Plorable, whose real name is Francis Shivers, wants him to adopt — and groove to — his new version.
  • Casket outside Brooklyn nursing home filled with 6,500 covers of Cuomo’s book

    NY Post ^ | 10/18/2020 | Reuven Fenton and Kate Sheehy
    A silver casket was wheeled to the front of a Brooklyn nursing home Sunday — and 6,500 copies of the cover of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new book were dumped into it in protest of his COVID-19 policies. The number of covers was equal to the roughly 6,500 people who have been reported killed by the coronavirus in nursing homes in the state — although the ralliers said they believe the figure is much higher. “My mother-in-law got COVID in an elder-care facility but died in a hospital, [so] her number does not count’’ in New York’s nursing-home tally, said Janice...
  • Trump Likens Hunter Biden To A 'Vacuum Cleaner' Who 'Follows His Father Around Collecting'

    President Trump turned up the heat on his hapless opponent on Friday following a New York Post bombshell report on the contents of a laptop reportedly abandoned by Hunter Biden. During a swing through the key battleground state of Florida, Trump tore into the Bidens who he likened to an "organized crime family" and also likened Hunter Biden to a "vacuum cleaner" who "follows his father around collecting" money.

    Faux News ^ | October 17, 2020 | Marisa Schultz
    Law enforcement groups blasted Vice President Joe Biden for again suggesting training police to shoot suspects "in the leg" is a viable way to avoid fatalities, decrying the proposal as dangerous and ignorant. During an ABC News town hall Thursday, Biden gave the shooting advice while talking about broader police reforms, which have been on the public conscience since the killing of George Floyd sparked nationwide racial unrest. "There's a lot of things we've learned and it takes time, but we can do this," Biden said. "You can ban chokeholds ... you have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances....
  • How U.S. polls got it wrong in 2016 — and why they're more likely to get it right this time

    Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 U.S. presidential election defied long odds and the widespread assumption that Hillary Clinton had the contest in the bag. That experience led many to suspect that — no matter how big Joe Biden's lead is this time — it's inevitable that Trump will prove the polls wrong again. That's a possibility, of course. But a lot has changed since 2016. The CBC's Presidential Poll Tracker gave Clinton a 3.4-point lead in national polls over Trump on election day. She was projected to win North Carolina and Florida by narrow margins, with Michigan, Pennsylvania and...

    If democrats take (steal) the Presidency, the House, and the Senate, what will happen to Hunter? It may not be too much of a stretch that Hunter could become even more of a democrat celebrity. Hunter has: -name recognition -democrat resume (clear your throat and say 'ahem') -experience with international finance (‘ahem’) -experience negotiating with foreign governments (‘ahem’) -experience dealing with Ukraine, China and probably more (wink) Who knows?--> Secretary of Commerce? ...Secretary of State? UN ambassador? Ambassador to China? 12th sitting justice of the Supreme court? If not Hunter, someone similar, God Help Us. (Exaggeration with dark humor intended,...

    The second presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden was canceled last week, but both candidates will still face off in dueling town hall events Thursday night. President Trump will participate in a town hall from Miami with NBC News. President Donald Trump will take part in an NBC News town hall event in Miami on Thursday, the network announced Wednesday, after Trump produced a Covid-19 test showing he is not contagious. The town hall, moderated by "TODAY" anchor Savannah Guthrie, will take place on the same evening — and at the same time —...

    Amy Coney Barrett has been the subject of all sorts of misleading attacks, and progressives have invented ridiculous process reasons to deny her a confirmation vote. When there is so much nonsense to knock down, we go into overdrive to do it. We are now in the same mode that we were in during the Kavanaugh fight — on high alert, rebutting all the shoddy journalism and tendentious arguments. Which is why I’d like to ask you to contribute to our flash fundraiser.

    Since the Associated Press considers itself “an independent global news organization dedicated to factual reporting,” it would be problematic for an AP article to contain commentary packaged as news and facts.Real Clear Politics co-founder and president Tom Bevan captured the following excerpt from an AP story. “Bullock said that if Coney Barrett was confirmed, he would be open to measures to depoliticize the court, including adding judges to the bench, a practice critics have dubbed packing the courts.” The latest version of the article contains the following note: “This story has been edited to make clear that it is Bullock’s...

    Some things you just have to see to believe. During a drive-in campaign event in Las Vegas, Nev., on Friday, Joe Biden did something really stupid. First, as you can see in the video below, he was unnecessarily wearing a mask while alone at his podium. Second, he was wearing it wrong, with his only his mouth covered, and not his nose. But the real absurdity came when he had to cough, and he literally pulled his mask down to cough into his hand, before readjusting his mask (correctly) and placing his now germ-ridden hand on the podium that some...
