Highlights of the News

Good morning. Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1Jonathan S. Tobin wrote, "Democrats’ new strategy for winning the White House: Threaten riots if they lose."

He said, "Behind all that high-minded talk from pompous columnists about virtuous patriots stopping Trump from cheating is a brazen threat. They’re saying in effect: The same forces that have wreaked havoc in the name of a false charge that America is an irredeemably racist nation may well inflict even worse damage in order to ensure that Trump’s re-election is thwarted.

"That’s the subtext of the talk from Biden supporters about democracy. Their ace in the hole isn’t an accurate count of the votes but the certainty that America’s cities will burn ­unless the electorate bows to their demands.

"Aided by the devastation from the pandemic, Biden may yet win without any help from mobs. If he does, Trump will likely bow to the verdict of the people and go home.

"But in what is likely to be a close election in a deeply ­divided country — immersed in a culture war about a largely false charge of racism — the real threat to the process isn’t a presidential spoilsport. It’s a Democrat Party that is fully prepared to unleash ruin on the nation if it loses again."

They want power.

Maoists took over the party, and I am pretty sure Red China finances them.

To be fair, Corporate America does too. Most CEOs are post turtles who want no trouble.

They saw Brendan Eich's head on the pike.

ITEM 2: The company that owns ABC and ESPN is controlled by Red China.
What a sad end to a once-decent and patriotic company. But that was why the communists targeted Disney.

ITEM 3: Yahoo reported, "The Rochester, N.Y., police department’s chief and two deputy chiefs announced Tuesday that they were retiring from their positions after a long weekend of scrutiny over the death of Daniel Prude, a black man who died in police custody in March.

"Mayor Lovely Warren announced at a City Council meeting that Chief La’Ron Singletary would be retiring after 34 years on the force. In a letter, Singletary said he would 'not sit idly by while outside entities attempt to destroy my character.'

Chief Singletary wrote, "The events over the past week are an attempt to destroy my character and integrity. The members of the Rochester Police Department and the Greater Rochester Community know my reputation and know what I stand for. The mischaracterization and the politicization of the actions that I took after being informed of Mr. Prude’s death is not based on facts, and is not what I stand for."

I don't know what happened to Prude. No one does. It is being investigated. The death is no excuse for riots or even protests.

Michael D. Brown's death wasn't. Freddie Gray's death wasn't. George Floyd's death wasn't. In each case, the homicide was investigated.

The media failed to learn the lesson that there are two sides and police often are in a no-win situation.

But reporters and their bosses do not care. It is not their businesses the mob destroys.

ITEM 4: The New York Post reported, "First lady Chirlane McCray’s pet project to erect more city statues to women is a monumental failure, critics say.

"Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife started the effort two years ago — yet has chosen only one artist for a single monument so far.

"A rep for McCray insists her boss’s She Built NYC effort had to be temporarily shelved because of the corona virus, but critics note that construction restraints on the Big Apple amid the pandemic were lifted several months ago — and claim City Hall’s incompetence and scattered priorities are really to blame."

Corona virus ate my homework.

ITEM 5: Remember when Senator Harris was a hard-ass prosecutor?
We have been spelling her name wrong. It's Chameleon.

ITEM 6: The Washington Examiner reported, "Polls showing consistent black voter support for President Trump at levels higher than those of previous Republican candidates may cost Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden the election. Biden's backing from this key voting group is less than it was for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama."

The story also said, "The black vote has been in focus since Trump was elected. Since entering the White House, the president emphasized programs targeting black people, boosted employment for African Americans, and featured several black speakers at the Republican National Convention."

To offset the loss of black and Hispanic votes, pollsters are trimming white support from President Trump. Neat trick.

ITEM 7: Just the News reported, "Earlier this year, the infamous dossier author Christopher Steele revealed he had destroyed nearly all the records detailing his dirt-digging on Donald Trump and Russia.

"'They no longer exist,' Steele told a British court.

"Now comes word that Steele's primary and longtime contact inside the Obama State Department, Jonathan Winer, also destroyed records of the former British MI6 agent's contacts inside that federal agency, including many of the 100-plus unsolicited intelligence reports Steele provided the Obama administration.

"'I destroyed them, and I basically destroyed all the correspondence I had with him,' Winer is quoted as saying in a little noticed passage of the Senate Intelligence Committee's final report on the Russia collusion scandal.

"Winer apparently destroyed the records at Steele's request, the report said."

Isn't destruction of government records against the law?

But the law no longer applies to Democrats.

ITEM 8The Hill reported, "The San Francisco salon owner, who Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) alleges set her up by recording her visit to the facility without a mask last week, has received more than $300,000 in donations.

"A GoFundMe page for Erica Kious, the owner of the salon where Pelosi was videotaped without a mask for a hair appointment, raised $310,725 from 8,800 donors as of Tuesday afternoon. The fundraiser surpassed its $300,000 goal on Labor Day.

"Kious thanked the donors, her daughters, their loving dad, and her family and friends in a letter published on the page on Monday."

Good. Now she can file a libel suit against Pelosi for saying she was set up.

ITEM 9: George S. Bardmesser noticed Harris is not campaigning much.

He wrote, "So what explains Harris’ near-invisibility? She is not lazy. She put in the hours a year ago until her own presidential bid crashed and burned in the fall. Harris is not a gaffe factory — unlike Biden, they can let her out of the basement without too much worry about what she’ll say. I am certain there is a complex game of 5D chess going on here, and we just can’t see it, much less figure it out.

"Is she refusing to go out because she already knows Biden is toast and wants to be associated with him as little as possible? Does she think that staying barely visible now helps her more with her 2024 run? Has the Biden campaign changed its mind about Harris aiding the ticket, now that the polls are in, and it is clear that Harris is helpful with big-money donors, but no help at all with the voters? Are they worried nobody will show up to see Harris at her events? Is the Biden-Harris campaign so far behind the curve that they still believe the basement strategy is the way to go?"

My theory is she was talked into running with the promise of getting the 2024 nod.

The Maoist Obamas control the party.

ITEM 10: Rolling blackouts in green energy California force people to turn off ACs in triple-digit heat.

Even North Koreans have electricity.
West Virginians will pass on the offer.

We have coal.

ITEM 11: The Washington Free Beacon reported, "Joe Biden’s former White House stenographer said the vice president’s public speaking ability has deteriorated significantly since leaving office to the point where he’s "not the same Joe Biden."

"'It is a complete difference from what he was in 2017,' Mike McCormick, who worked as a White House stenographer for 15 years and with Biden from 2011 to 2017, told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview. 'He’s lost a step and he doesn’t seem to have the same mental acuity as he did four years ago'."

A real person goes on the record and the media ignores it.

Contrast and compare to The Atlantic story.

ITEM 12: Dan Rather accidentally tells the truth.
The media lies because the lie sticks while the truth is ignored.

Remember how his Big Lie about a fake letter brought President Bush down?

Oh wait, he failed.

Rather, the letter brought Rather down.

ITEM 13: Page Six reported, "‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ ending after 14 years on air."

All good things must end.

And a few of the bad things as well.

ITEM 14: Nate Silver has it Biden 270, President Trump 268 in the Electoral College.
Which means President Trump is ahead by close to 70 electoral votes, given N8 Ag's track record.

ITEM 15: The New York Post reported, "The novel corona virus has infected more than 26.35 million people, with just four countries accounting for over 15 million cases. They are the United States, Brazil, India and Russia — the same four that have been at the top for months. The US surprised the world when it rose to the top spot in multiple covid 19 statistics, both for the total number of confirmed cases and the number of deaths. Since then, no other country has surpassed America.

"But scientists who are studying the pandemic have also identified another surprise of the pandemic. Some expected the African continent to be affected most heavily by the virus, but that wasn’t the case. South Africa stands out when it comes to the number of total cases, with nearly 631,000 infections. But fewer than 15,000 people have died of covid 19. These figures are puzzling scientists looking to understand how the virus behaves and how it can be beaten."

Dr. Simone Gold tweeted, "You mean the only continent where hydroxychloroquine is widely available and can be purchased over-the-counter?"

Having to fight malaria has an upside. It makes HCQ widely available and over-the-counter.

ITEM 16: While Biden is hiding, Team Trump takes its case to the American people.

Before a politician can claim he will fight for me, he must fight for himself.

ITEM 17Bobby Lopez wrote, "Leftism is worse than racism."

Lopez made 10 specific points, including:
  • The left is enormous; blatant racists are by now few in number.
  • The left is openly aggressive and unapologetic; the racists I’ve known are almost ashamed of feeling racist and try to be as unobtrusive to others as possible.
  • Leftists are organized and well funded. Racists are not.
It is a good column, but leftists are also racist.

ITEM 18: The Fort Worth Star Telegram reported, "A Wisconsin priest who condemned Catholic Democrats has the support of a Texas bishop.

"Father James Altman, pastor of St. James the Less Catholic Church, lashed out at Father James Martin, who participated in the Democratic National Convention. In a 10-minute video posted to YouTube, Altman called the priest a 'hyper, confusing spreading heretic' and had harsh words toward Democrats.

"'Here is a memo to clueless baptized Catholics out there: You cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period,' Altman said in the video posted Aug. 30. 'The party platform absolutely is against everything the Catholic Church teaches, so just quit pretending that you’re Catholic and vote Democrat. Repent of your support of that party and its platform or face the fires of hell.'

"Tyler, Texas, Bishop Joseph Strickland tweeted his endorsement of Altman’s statement."

The story did not mention abortion, which is a deal-breaker for Catholics.

ITEM 19: Business Insider reported, "Joe Biden is currently underperforming among Latino voters in Florida, according to two recently released polls, a warning sign for the former vice president as he seeks to win the crucial swing state and its 29 electoral votes.

"A poll conducted by Bendixen & Amandi International and the Miami Herald among 500 likely Miami-Dade County voters was released Tuesday morning, showing Biden ahead of Trump 55% to 38%, outside of the poll's 4.4 margin of error. Among Hispanic voters, Trump narrowly leads Biden, 47% to 46%, with Trump swamping Biden among Cuban-American voters 68% to 30% and Biden winning over non-Cuban Hispanic voters 58% to 32%."

Cubans aside, that 32% among the rest of Hispanic voters has to have Biden's handlers sweating.

President Trump won in 2016 with 29% of the Hispanic vote. 32% is a big sign of trouble for the Party Of Obama.

FINALLY, Citizen Free Press is an alternative to the Drudge Report. It a one-man operation that in 3 short years has grown from nothing to being a top 1,000 news and media site in America.

That means it tops about half the nation's TV stations, newspapers, and magazines.

I got a link from CFP and had my best day ever.

Please, by all means, add Citizen Free Press to your daily journeys.


  1. #1 This is about more than power. It's also about staying out of prison. That's what's making them desperate.

  2. For consideration as a future news item:

  3. Right now the west side of Oregon is burning, fires are popping up from Ashland to Portlantifa. I knew this would happen it isa huge dagerous problem. it is due to the Dry conditions, and eastwinds (like the Santa Anas. but this is more. Way more.
    We are at war,these were set, I speak as a former Aerial fire fighter.
    these were set..

    1. Not long ago, terrorists set Israel ablaze. Shortly after that Australia was lit on fire, and CA burns every year. Communists and islamists are starting these fires, it's a battle tactic no joke no laughing no kidding.

    2. If you look at some of the videos of the fires, you will see dead falls burning. Before the environmentalists took over the West Coast there was select cutting of trees in state and federal forests and the companies cleared the brush and tree falls to remove fire fuel. Then routine controlled burns could be used to greatly lessen the chance of a massive fire. I owed 40 acres once in a federal forest in CA but in 1978 I could see the future.

    3. Oh,don't get me started on Modern Timber practices.Or the lack there of.the Greens took over in the various agencies both state and fed. One of the biggest crimes was the near total lack of
      proper initial attack when the conditions warrant. for instance two of the biggest fires in the Cascades had been burning for a couple of weeks. They got away due to the wind. Oddly the fires osn the Warm Springs Rez. did hold and held better. The Indians knew what they were doing.
      The others, however all popped up on roads and highways.I wonder if these were"peaceful protestors" from Portlantifa? The area up the McKenzie river by Eugene, Or. Several fires all going at once very suspicious. Our Fearless leader Kate of the house of Brown, says "Unprecedented!!!" -when that term is used = "Global Warming/Climate Change /Truuuummmpppp!!" I can barely read some of the local news because all are screaming that the Global Warming faeries have caused this and maybe in concert with White, straight, Trump supporters. -I kid you not. No, this is enemy action.They will get caught out. Soon.

    4. We had to drive across southern Oregon yesterday. Had to reroute our trip three times due to highway closures by fire. There was a firestorm up the Bear Creek Valley last night from Ashland north. A good share of Talent and Phoenix are in flames into south Medford. We're having a hard time finding up to date news.
      Yes, conditions are bad, but this is far too many fire starts to be accidental and random. Ecoterrorism it is, and of course if authorities have any indications of arson, they are suppressing any announcement of it.

    5. Greg-I worked Tanker 62 out of Medford for Five seasons back in the 90's The Ashland watershed was one place we guarded. Any start there was immediately pounced on.Bear Creek drainage is very familiar to me. I have lots of old friends in the Roguee Valley. in harm's way. It frustrates me I'm not helping to fight.
      This is War...

  4. Democrats have told us what they're going to do during election month. We all know it, they know it, everyone knows it. They will find trunks full of ballots until they win, and they will do it in as many states as they need to. Remember these are the people who wrote the steele dossier (peepee hookers and all) do not put it past them to make it look like all 50 states voted 100% for biden. They did it in 2012, 115% of voters in some counties voted for Obama, and republicans laughed it off. Expect the highest level of cheating ever to occur in human history.

    1. That’s why Mr. T threw down the gauntlet in NC. BT (Before Trump) it was practically an item of faith that Republicans would play by the rules - because, you know, we believe in God - and LibCommies wouldn’t - because, you know, they DON’T. DubVee is So Trump Country I could see him winning 90-10 pop vote. But if I lived someplace else, say the People’s Republic of Montgomery County MD, hell yes I’d consider testing the system with a double vote. MAKE THE BASTARDS LIVE DOWN TO THEIR RULES FOR OUR BENEFIT.

    2. I have to believe that PDJT has a plan. A yuuuuge plan.

    3. Sometimes, I think his supporters even forget his brilliance...

  5. Kama Kama Kamala chameleon. Just popped into my head.

    1. Now I can't get that tune out of my head!

      We've all been lectured about the correct way to pronounce Ka-MAL-a, which is with the accent on the Ka-, but I'm sticking to the original. "Mal" is Latin for bad, or evil, so it fits her perfectly!

      Ka-MAL-a, sing it!

  6. Item 4 - Our culture has placed itself in a corner over statues. The intent to honor people has morphed into something bizarre. The Eisenhower Memorial is a bad joke that fortunately was halted, for instance. Public art is grotesque - consider the Tilted Arc disgrace in Lower Manhattan. One of Trumps accomplishments has been to point out the ugliness of modern federal buildings.

    Our art reflects our times. Ugly.

    1. What, you don’t like Cardi B’s latest Number One hit? Racist.

      Which reminds me: My son once looked at Michael Jackson’s greatest hits collection, No. 1’s, and dismissively said it should be called No. 2’s. Hahaha.

  7. Re the various Joe'n'Kamala posts. I had to look this up to remind myself, but rhymes-with-Pamela went "all in" on Iowa--and still her campaign crashed and burned a full two months before a vote was cast. She got bubkes. She was still on the NH ballot 3 weeks later, where she "amassed" 129 votes out of nearly 300,000 cast for a percentage of zero. Oh very well, 0.04%, which rounds to zero. Tulsi Gabbard polled higher. Deval Patrick (who?) polled higher. Heck, Donald Trump polled higher--as a Democrat write-in! The Democrats are shadow-running a candidate for President someone who couldn't beat something named Joe Sestak (God love him, but are you kidding me?). Without the media--news, social, and otherwise--they'd be laughingstocks. They still are, with apologies to laughingstocks everywhere, but that the DA and the DOA are even competitive betrays how corrupt our institutions have become.

  8. Item #1: The left will not accept a Trump win. The right will not accept a Biden win. They hate us. We are sick of them. We must get a divorce.

    Item #9: Harris isn't out there because they are using the China virus to keep Joe in the barn. She can't put the lie to that, so she has to be held back to... and it's killing her. She wants to be throwing bombs, like Angela Davis.

    1. #1 they want us to believe they number in the millions, but America has always been center/right. Embarrassed millionaires like to complain, but they're not as keen on burning the nation down.

  9. Items #3 & #5: Just a reminder:
    Michael Brown hasn't committed a strong arm robbery in years!
    George Floyd hasn't done Fentanyl in months
    and Jacob Blake hasn't raped a minor in weeks.
    Give them all Kudos

    1. Is Travon still dieing for some skittles?

    2. Trayvon's condition is still grave but stable.

    3. I am not sure what you guys are talking about. Trayvon voted last year, so he must still be ok.

  10. Citizen Free Press is wonderful. Now, if they could only fix my permanent Caps Lock keyboard problem!

  11. 1. You know how much I care if riots tear apart ny, chicago, detroit, la, philadelphia, baltimore, etc, etc. About this much.

    When they RICO blm and antifa and take all their assets and the assets of their supporters, the United States will own a lot of companies. I wonder what they'll do with the nba when they own it?

    6. hillary was expected to get a lot of black votes. She was married to the first black president.

    9. Her popularity was displayed when only 15 people came out to see her in Milwaukee.

    12. And, he should stay down.

    13. Fourteen years of being famous for being famous. Not a bad run.

    15. More anecdotal evidence that HCQ works. But, we'll need a detailed study before it is endorsed.

    16. Her popularity was displayed when only 15 people came out to see her in Milwaukee. And biden had 4 people in Lancaster PA. It amazes me that they had pictures unless it was to show joe was out of the basement!

    17. I think black studies majors created more racists.

    19. biden will be practicing "vamos hombre" for his visits to Florida because "come on man" won't resonate there.

  12. This comment has been removed by the author.

  13. #1) In many areas of our country, on the ground journalists are finding citizens organizing for local defense as was reported about Kensoha. Minneapolis is the most obvious but has little to no coverage. The MSM is not reporting this. The impotence of the police caused by the Dems is causing this. Our rural farming area has a loose defense organization just in case it is needed. Because this is not obvious to media pundits, it is not being reported on, so the Dems think they have a clear field to do what they want. They may just find out how wrong they are.

  14. Item 15-
    Dr. Mitchell notated the fraction of wu-flu deaths in Sub-Saharan African countries during the (banned on youtube) white coat summit.
    Also in related wu-flu news, there have been 77.1% fewer wu-flu deaths in countries that used hcq/zinc than those that didn't. (1st link)
    And believe it or not, the N.Y. Times published an article questioning the veracity of the PCR tests used to determine the positivity rates of wu-flu cases. (2nd link)

  15. 1: No close election. The Demos are going to get killed and they know it. This is a Hail Hitler (as opposed to Mary) and it's all they've got left after a year of mind-bending stupidity from them.

    5: I told you what her name was.

    9: She is as bad a campaigner as Gropin' Joe.

    14: This is a winning map for Biden, but it's preposterous.


    17: Sounds like his stuff is written by Troll Central.

    18: You cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat

    The only ones who claim to be are cafeteria Catholics like Gropin' Joe and Pelosi Galore.

    The story did not mention abortion, which is a deal-breaker for real Catholics.

    19: Been saying this from the start.

    And, no, I don't think anybody's going to go for it. No big fan of Schlichter, but the column you quoted was on the money. Just like Tet, people are running to Trump, not the Commies.

    3: Also happening in Dallas and, I think, Pittsburgh IIRC.

    4: I'm sure we're going to see lots of Mary O'Gradys and Sophie Tartagliones, and Katrina van Rhinelanders springing up.

  16. I think we should be VERY concerned about this election. While Don predicts 37 and others higher in the amount of states Trump will win, we live in a bizzaro world today. The left is brazen like never before and is getting away with it! They riot for 100 strait days and we're told they are peaceful protests. The rioters are sometimes arrested and friendly DA's release them with no charges. In rare cases someone resists the mob, the person who defends himself IS arrested and charged!
    The deep state spied on Trump = ZERO consequences
    These riots have them suffering NO consequences, sedition carries NO consequences, so why not just print up 1,000,000 fake ballots for each state and overwhelm the electoral system (Rules for Radicals). The Republicans have a long history of rolling over in such situations and I see this happening for real in November. The Left has pretty much told us that's going to happen. And so far, I see NOTHING to stop them

    1. Okay eeyore...go do something about it then.

      Start with making sure you convince just 10 people to vote for President Trump, in person. Tell them you’ll take them to vote if they can’t get there.


  17. Don-
    Thanks for the link to CFP. They are now 'bookmarked' along with yours as well as several other go-to sites.

  18. How is Biden going to campaign in California if there is no way to recharge his batteries?

  19. Started Byron York's "Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment's Never-Ending War on Trump." I agree with Mollie Hemingway when she said it reads like a thriller.


  20. 5) 'Kamala' in finnish means 'horrible'
