    Perhaps the most notable observation from the latest Bank of America Fund Manager Survey is the finding that 74% of respondents believe that a contested election is the biggest reason for volatility in 4Q, and that 61% of Wall Street professionals believe the election will be contested. Consistent with this, 44% of respondents in a parallel survey targeting FX and Rates investors found that 44% of respondents expected uncertainty to linger for up to a month if not longer—still a considerable share. Yet even as the market is setting up for the possibility of greater volatility, it now appears...

    50 Cent is backing President Trump. The 45-year-old rapper on Monday urged his social media followers to “VOTE For TRUMP” after seeing figures related to Joe Biden’s tax plan. The Queens-bred artist bashed the Democratic presidential nominee’s plan, which would raise tax rates for corporations and people making $400,000 or more per year.

  • Joe Biden Continues to Pander: This Time It’s the Haitian-American Community

    10/19/2020 6:31:30 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | October 19, 2020 | Madgie Nicolas
    Joe Biden’s recent eight minute and 46 second speech while visiting the Haitian American community showed that it was just another last-minute attempt at pandering for minority votes. For 47 years as an elite Washington, D.C. insider he has no substantial record of support for this community he is pretending to now care about. We are a significant voting bloc in Florida but the Haitian American community will not fall for it. Joe Biden is the walking embodiment of the betrayal, manipulation, misused and abused, empty promises of the Democratic Party towards communities of color. The globalist agenda of Joe...

  • Cancer-stricken Rush Limbaugh says he can no longer deny he's 'under a death sentence'

    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.  Limbaugh announced in February that he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer and had missed several shows this month to undergo treatment.   “From the moment you get the diagnosis, there’s a part of you every day, OK, that’s it, life’s over, you just don’t know when,” Limbaugh said. “So, during the period of time after the diagnosis, you do what you can to prolong life, do what you can to prolong a happy life. You measure...

    Credit Maya Angelou for this: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” She could not have been contemplating her own apparent political persuasion some six years after her passing, but in capturing today’s Democrats-Progressives-Lefties, she nailed it. In 2020, Republicans control the White House and the Senate, but almost no other bastion of political power in the United States. Fully in possession of the House of Representatives, MSM (the major networks, most of cable, much of print media, and the film conglomerates, and Academia—now at all levels of education, K-16—we might have thought the Left’s...
  • Kamala Harris Was Right

    Editor's Note: This column was co-authored by Vernon Robinson. Yes, Kamala Harris was right when during a Democratic Party presidential debate she accused Joe Biden of being a racist. After assuring Joe Biden that she wasn’t going to call him a racist, she did just that saying, “it’s personal and it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country.  And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing.” But, it isn’t just that Joe...

    Like many Americans, I periodically post political views on social media. Almost all my posts are based on my personal experiences. Recently, many of those posts have been viciously attacked by certain “friends” based on neither facts nor experience; just emotion, usually anger. The sad fact is many of these attacks have come from people I grew up with. People I've known for almost 50 years, who come from the same working-class town as me; people I went to grade school, church, Bar Mitzvahs and Confirmations with. Kids who stood next to my dad and me wearing birthday hats at...

    Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton said Monday on the nationally syndicated talk show “The Real” that President Donald Trump was the “obsessed” with her mother 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. When asked about Trump mentioning her mother during a Fox News interview, Clinton said, “He’s obsessed with her. I mean, he talks about her all the time. He talks about her in interviews. He talks about her in rallies. He tweets about her.”

    October 19, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The Catholic Church doesn’t take partisan positions in elections. However, standing against evil isn’t a partisan position, it’s a primary duty. The Church has a duty—a moral obligation—to speak publicly and proclaim the truth about those who are attacking our culture, families, marriages, and the most vulnerable—babies in the womb. Religious duty only seems to be a political statement when evil is sponsored by a political party—but that just makes the situation more grave and urgent. The consequences of this battle are both temporal and eternal.“The grave danger today is not religion in politics but politics...
  • Valerie Jarrett: ‘Racist’ Senator Perdue Should Apologize — He Knows How to Pronounce Kamala’s Name

    Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett said Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that Senator David Perdue (R-GA) mispronouncing Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris’s first name at a campaign rally in Macon, GA was ‘racist.’ After running a clip of the mispronunciation, Mitchell asked, “He said it was just an accident, or he misspoke. He serves on the Budget Committee with Kamala Harris. What do you think his motivation is? Was this racism? Should he apologize?

    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and President Donald Trump are statistically tied in Pennsylvania, a Restoration PAC/Trafalgar Group survey released Monday — nearly two weeks out from the presidential election — revealed. The survey, taken October 13-15 among 1,041 likely voters, showed Trump narrowing the gap in Pennsylvania, with Biden leading by just 1.1 percent — 47.5 percent to the president’s 46.4 percent. As has been the emerging theme in several recent surveys in key Rust Belt states, Biden’s lead is within the margin of error, which is +/- 2.96 percent.

    The hubris of the technology companies at this point is staggering, and it seems to have blinded them to some pretty obvious problems with what they are doing. (LifeSiteNews) – Some weird things have been happening online recently. If you search for certain words or phrases on Google, you are directed not to the website or news story about the thing you are searching for, but a series of sources attacking or debunking it. When you try to post about certain things on Twitter or Facebook, your followers see your words accompanied by a link to an article attacking what,...

    Kentucky may enforce its law requiring abortionists have transfer agreements with local hospitals for patient emergencies after the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the state Friday.Abortion groups in Kentucky are challenging the life-saving 1998 law, claiming it imposes an “undue burden” on a woman’s right to abortion. Planned Parenthood and EMW Women’s Surgical Center have argued that they may have to close because they cannot meet the safety requirement, thus preventing women in Kentucky from getting abortions.According to Reason, the Sixth Circuit panel disagreed with the abortion groups’ argument and reversed a lower court ruling blocking...

    What to make of the 'Hunter Biden laptop' stories from the New York Post? A few thoughts, to start: (1) It seems pretty telling that the Biden campaign -- for all its umbrage -- has not denied the authenticity of the emails themselves, and has declined to rule out the possibility that Biden's son did arrange a meeting between the then-Vice President and a top Burisma adviser. This calls into question Biden's prior denials, and raises questions about Hunter Biden's apparent lucrative arrangement with a Chinese energy company, under which a key deliverable was access to power. This stuff is...

    God only knows that, two weeks out from the presidential election, the stakes are high. On Sunday, a version of the Beach Boys — the touring incarnation of the group led by cofounder Mike Love — performed at a last-minute fundraiser for President Trump near Newport Beach in Orange County. Brian Wilson and Al Jardine, two other founding members of the beloved California band, were less than happy about the news.

    San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is changing its grading policies in an attempt to “make them more anti-racist.” The new grading removes “non-academic factors,” with the school district using the example of turning in homework late. “For months, the district has been working on multiple areas of its operations, including grading, in efforts to make them more anti-racist and equitable, partly in response to social justice protests that erupted over the summer in response to George Floyd’s death,” reported the San Diego Union-Tribune. Now, the school district’s new grading system will no longer take into account what the district...

    UK City to Change Statues Which ‘Over-Celebrated Empire, Christianity and “Great” White Men’An official review of statues in Leeds, England, concluded that they “over-celebrated Empire, Christianity and ‘great’ white men” and should be changed through the use of new public-facing plaques putting them a different context.Leeds was the site of one of the more dramatic statue vandalisations in Britain as BLM unrest swept the country, with an impressive monument to Queen Victoria being defaced with the BLM slogans and pejoratives including ‘racist’, ‘whore’, ‘slag’, and ‘slave owner’ — wholly inaccurately, as the British had abolished the slave trade decades prior...
