    CNN pundit Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended for "accidentally flashing his penis during a Zoom call with colleagues," and reportedly also masturbating. VICE spoke with two anonymous people who were on the call which was an election simulation featuring the New Yorker’s most prolific journalists, with Toobin reportedly playing the courts. Both sources said they saw Toobin “jerking off.” The simulation included a strategy session with a break of about 10 minutes. Toobin has since apologized and told the news outlet: "I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera.

    Blah ... blah ... blah ... ... few in either party rule out the possibility of Trump surprising again in the Rust Belt, even if polls are more favorable for Biden now than Clinton then. "My sense of what I see particularly in rural parts of the state and smaller cities is that the Trump vote is more energized now than it was four years ago," says Mark Graul, a Wisconsin-based Republican strategist who ran George W. Bush's campaign there in 2004. Privately, some Democratic operatives who are closely watching the early voting totals say they see worrisome signs that...

    EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Zachery Ty Bryan, the actor who played the oldest son on the long-running 1990s sit-com “Home Improvement” was arrested in Oregon and faces charges of strangulation and assault. The Eugene Police Department said officers were dispatched to a North Eugene apartment Friday night on a report of a physical dispute. They found Bryan, 39, sitting outside and his girlfriend, 27, at a neighboring apartment. Bryan reportedly assaulted the victim, impeded her breathing, and took her phone away when she tried to call 911, police said. The victim declined medical assistance.

    From the perspective of late-night joke writers, there’s really only one person running for president. A staggering 97% of the jokes Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon told about the candidates in September targeted President Donald Trump, a study released Monday found. That’s 455 jokes about Trump and 14 about Democrat Joe Biden, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University. That doesn’t even count 64 jokes made about Trump’s family or administration, the study said. “When Trump’s onstage, everyone else is blacked out,” said Robert Lichter, communication professor at George Mason. He’s been studying late-night...

    A U.S. appeals court on Monday dealt Ghislaine Maxwell a blow by refusing to block the release of a deposition she gave concerning her relationship with the late financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said there was a presumption the public had a right to see Maxwell’s 418-page deposition, which was taken in April 2016 for a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit against her. In an unsigned order, the court also said U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in Manhattan did not abuse her discretion in rejecting Maxwell’s “meritless arguments” that her...
  • Dems in Absolute Panic As Early Data Shatters Narrative in Key States

    Up until this weekend, the Democratic victory narrative has been this: Dems will outperform in early and mail in voting. Republicans, leerier to mail-in voting, will opt for in person voting and will outperform on election day. However, in the end, the in-person voting will not be enough to overcome the massive early voting numbers by the Democrats. This weekend that narrative shattered in some key states. It’s absolute panic. Politico’s lead story today contains this revealing quote about many anxiety-ridden memos in Democratic offices: Michigan is chief among the Democrats’ worries. With 25% of the total vote in, compared...
  • Biden Is So Far Behind Trump In Reality – The Media Wants You To Think Otherwise

    The Political Insider ^ | 10/18/2020 | Wayne Dupree
    I am not surprised at the polls that have Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden up by a few skyscrapers. In fact, I expect this kind of behavior from the Dems. The funny thing is, the Democrats truly think that by protecting Biden from the real Americans, they can quietly slip him into the White House as president. A rude awakening is in store for them when Trump wins in a landslide. The more the propaganda wing of the far left loses credibility with the public, the more panicked they become. The more panicked they become, the more insane and over...

    DURHAM, N.C. — More than half of the nearly 1.4 million absentee ballots requested in North Carolina remain outstanding with 15 days left until Election Day. Mailed ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 3 and received by county election officials by Nov. 6 to count. So, with time running short to get those ballots in, WRAL Investigates again put the U.S. Postal Service to the test to see how long it takes "ballots" mailed from different parts of Durham and Cumberland counties to get to a central location in each county.

    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...

    The New York Stock Exchange told New Jersey lawmakers that it’s prepared to move operations out of state should they impose a new tax on electronic trades via data servers. In late September, the world’s largest exchange by market capitalization conducted a test “for a wholesale transition out of New Jersey,” Hope Jarkowski, co-head of government affairs for NYSE parent Intercontinental Exchange Inc., said during an Assembly financial institutions and insurance committee hearing conducted by video feed. “From Sept. 28 to Oct. 2, we moved our production servers for our NYSE Chicago exchange out of New Jersey to our secondary...

    Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc have agreed to step up security and economic cooperation – with Tokyo set to export defence equipment and technology to Hanoi – amid China’s growing influence in the region. Suga, who is on his first overseas trip since becoming prime minister last month, called Vietnam a linchpin in efforts to realise a “free and open Indo-Pacific” and vowed Japan’s “continued contribution to peace and prosperity in the region”. He also criticised actions in the South China Sea that “go against the rule of law”, a veiled reference to...

The Post exclusively reported last month that the former Democratic pol had re-emerged as the CEO of a company that makes countertops out of broken glass.

    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.

    New York Post ^ | October 19, 2020 | Rich Lowry
    Joe Biden is the most cosseted presidential candidate in memory. He has run a minimalist campaign that has avoided the press as much as possible, while the press hasn’t been braying for more access and answers, but eager to avoid anything that could be discomfiting to the campaign. Never before have the media been so openly fearful of asking or reporting something that might hurt a presidential candidate. What are supposed to be the animating values of our adversarial press — informing the public, getting answers, holding the powerful to account — have all been subordinated to the protection racket...

    The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) has adopted a new rule ahead of Thursday’s second and final presidential debate and will silence the microphone of the candidate who does not have the floor during the uninterrupted two-minute periods at the start of each segment. The Commission cited their prior announcement to consider “additional structure” to future debates following the first presidential debate with moderator Chris Wallace. The first debate saw several interruptions from both candidates and Wallace. While Joe Biden (D) set the tone by interrupting first, Wallace later stated that Trump bore the “primary responsibility” for what occurred during...

    The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a Republican application to stay the decision of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to grant the Democratic Party’s request to make several changes to mail-in voting that critics have decried as vulnerable to fraud. As Breitbart News reported last month, “The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled … that ballots received three days after Election Day will still be counted — even if there is no evidence they were postmarked on time.” Republicans sought a stay. The Supreme Court, however, split 4-4 on the request, leaving the decision of the lower court in place. Chief Justice John Roberts...
