    As the U.S. Senate on Monday voted 52-48 to confirm Trump-appointed Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the nation's nine-member Supreme Court, the four progressive congresswomen comprising the so-called Squad advocated for increasing the number of justices on the nation's high court.

Nine doctors working in the coronavirus ward at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon have filed a joint complaint to the hospital’s management over its handling of coronavirus patients, Israel Hayom reported Monday morning. The nine doctors complained of a lack of medical equipment, malfunctioning respirators, chronic neglect and mishandling of coronavirus cases which led to patients in the coronavirus ward dying. The complaint...

    Going back to (at least) the technocratic and ambitious FDR, American Democrats have believed that federal government eggheads are best suited to manage most things, including mundane things like ensuring healthcare or housing, for everyone. But as a rule, Democrats have always had a very nuanced way of presenting such policies to the American people. In other words, socialists in America have been most successful when they don’t tell Americans that what’s being offered to them is socialism. The old guard of the Democrat party, which Joe Biden represents, has long understood that. The radical Bernie Sanders wing of the...
  • Michigan Election Workers Told To Dispose Of Ballots, Expel Poll Watchers

    Election workers in Michigan have been told during their official training classes that they should dispose of ballots, expel poll watchers and count challenged ballots. The Gateway Pundit reports that election workers were provided with ways in which they can prevent poll watchers doing their jobs in affirming election integrity. “They have to wear a mask, and they have to stay six feet. That’s important because if you don’t have six feet, they can’t come back there,” an instructor told attendees at the training session. The instructor then joked about how social distancing guidelines could be used to obfuscate the...

    A surge in coronavirus cases in counties critical to President Donald Trump’s victory may disrupt his plans to drive up in-person voting on Nov. 3, potentially reducing Republican turnout in areas the president can least afford it. In Kenosha, a Wisconsin county that voted for Barack Obama in 2012 and Trump in 2016, the positivity rate for COVID-19 test results has reached 27%. In relatively populous Westmoreland County in Western Pennsylvania where Trump won by more than 50,000 votes four years ago, the positivity rate for coronavirus cases has nearly tripled in two weeks, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. And...
  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot wants to start issuing speed camera tickets for cars going 6 mph over the limit

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who campaigned on a pledge to end Chicago’s “addiction” to fines and fees, is counting on a big increase in city collections from speeding tickets and other violations to balance her 2021 budget. And she wants part of the boost to the bottom line to come from speed cameras across Chicago issuing speeding tickets to drivers caught going as little as 6 miles per hour over the posted limit. Under the mayor’s proposal, as part of her 2021 budget package, anyone caught by a camera driving from 6 to 9 mph above the limit would get a...

    If the presidential election comes down to Pennsylvania or Michigan, it could take until Friday after Election Day — or maybe even later — for those results to be tabulated, the states’ chief election officials said Tuesday. Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar (D) and Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) both elaborated on their predictions for their states’ counting timelines during a web panel hosted by the Harvard Ash Center Tuesday afternoon. Both states have rules limiting how much processing of mail-in ballots can be done before Election Day — though Michigan’s legislature recently agreed to a modest...

    On Thursday, The Detroit News endorsed Republican John James over incumbent Democrat Gary Peters for U.S. Senate. “It is an honor to have the endorsement of one of Michigan’s most prestigious and well-read publications,” James said in response to the endorsement. “Our state and nation are currently at a crossroads, and Michigan has the choice between a combat veteran or a career politician, a war fighter or a gaslighter. It’s time for Michigan to have effective leadership in the Senate where no voice will be left out.” It appears that Twitter isn’t too happy about this endorsement and is warning...

    In September 2015, the Obama-Biden administration approved the sale of a strategically sensitive Michigan manufacturer, Henniges Automotive, to a firm connected to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and a Chinese military contractor that was on an American watch list because of its close ties to the People’s Liberation Army. Hunter Biden’s equity fund, backed by the Communist Chinese government, and the Chinese contractor, Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC), needed special approval for the deal from the Committee of Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CIFIUS) because Henniges produced technology with potential military use. AVIC entities have been sanctioned by the United States on...

    Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) said Tuesday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that President Donald Trump’s rhetoric has caused hate crimes to increase “exponentially over the last four years.” Cooper said, “When you heard the crowd at President Trump’s rally over the weekend, chanting “lock her up” referring to you— I don’t know if it surprised you given all you have been through and come to expect— but the fact that that’s where this has sunk, and the president still continues to attack you in the wake of this is stunning

    Joe Biden's campaign released ad on YouTube last week featuring bar owner Joe Malcoun who is co-owner of The Blind Pig, a popular Ann Arbor concert venue. In the ad, Malcoun blames Trump for widespread bar and restaurant closures saying Trump's handling of COVID-19 forced bar owners to close businesses. But ad doesn't mention Malcoun is also wealthy 'angel investor' in tech startups, and his social media shows his support for lockdown measures imposed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer - a Democrat who actually prolonged bar closures. After Malcoun's wealth was revealed, Biden campaign pulled ad from YouTube.

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...

    What the Michigan kidnap plot reveals about the FBI, the deep state, and the correlation of forces. “While the political rhetoric in our nation may at times be divisive I am encouraged by the united front our law enforcement community has displayed in response to this indescribable act of terror.”  That was Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel, after the arrest of Brian Higgins, the 14th person to be charged in the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Michiganders might expect an act of terror to involve the murder of innocents, such as the 14 slain by Syed Farook and...
