Highlights of the News

Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1: Fox reported, "Voter-registration patterns give Trump an edge invisible to polls: JPMorgan."

The story said, "Four years ago, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also outstripped Trump in national polling and won the popular vote by nearly 3 million, only to lose the electoral college, where she took just 227 votes to Trump’s 304.

"This year’s campaign may be won or lost in some of the same battlegrounds as that race, which has made them focal points for politicians, pollsters and observers alike.

"In Pennsylvania, for example, a blue-leaning state that Trump won by 44,292 votes in 2016, the Republican Party has since picked up nearly 200,000 voters.

"JPMorgan says the gains suggest Trump could win the state by a margin of more than 240,000 in the upcoming election.

"Similar progress in battlegrounds Florida and North Carolina suggest Trump may take those states by a larger margin than in his first campaign as well."

What I know, they know.

And the professionals politicos on the left are scared.

ITEM 2: President Trump keeps rolling along like the caissons in the Army.



This is why the media emphasizes social distancing at rallies because it is easier for Biden to socially distance 12 supporters than for The Donald to socially distance 12,000 people.

ITEM 3: The Associated Press reported, "C-SPAN suspended its political editor Steve Scully indefinitely Thursday after he admitted to lying about his Twitter feed being hacked when he was confronted about a questionable exchange with former Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci.

"The news came on the day of what was supposed to be a career highlight for the 30-year C-SPAN veteran. Scully was to moderate the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, which was canceled after Trump would not agree to a virtual format because of his covid 19 diagnosis."

He got caught.

All these political editors and whatnot in Washington seek approval of men like Scaramucci.

The leaked Democrat emails showed reporters seeking John Podesta's approval of their stories, often in advance of publication.

ITEM 4: Paul Bedard reported, "A six-month survey of battleground swing voters, those who chose Barack Obama in 2012, then President Trump in 2016, has found that most not only plan to stick with the Republican but expect him to be reelected by a wide margin.

"Overall, the survey said that 68% of swing voters polled in Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin are voting for Trump. They believe that he has done a good job with the economy and is 'working hard' to end the corona virus crisis.

"Many swing voters, former Obama supporters who voted for Donald Trump, are sticking with Trump.
Survey from Engagious/Schlesinger Group swing voter project."

He also wrote, "And notably, while the media has put the blame for the expanding corona virus on the president’s desk, swing voters are far more forgiving and give him credit for fighting it."

I noticed President Trump moved money and resources from the Midwest to New Mexico and Oregon. 

ITEM 5: The Trafalgar Group got all the battleground states correct last time.

No one else did.

Its latest polls show President Trump is up 2 in Florida, down 2 in Pennsylvania, up 4 in Arizona, up 3 in Ohio, down 3 in Wisconsin, and up less than a point in Michigan. This would put his Electoral College vote at 275 with Biden at 263.

I would take it. 

ITEM 6: Via Instapundit, Socket Site reported, "In addition to 5.6 million square feet of directly vacant, un-leased office space spread across the city, which is up from around 3.7 million square feet of un-leased space at the same time last year, there is now 6.2 million square feet of office space in San Francisco which has been leased but is sitting vacant and actively seeking a subletter, which is up from 770,000 square feet of sublettable space at the same time last year, according to Cushman & Wakefield.

"As such, there is now 11.8 million square feet of vacant office space spread across San Francisco for a citywide vacancy rate of 14.1%, which is up from an office vacancy rate of 9.8% at the end of the second quarter and versus a vacancy rate of 5.5%, representing 4.5 million square feet of vacant space, at the same time last year."

Double last year's empty office space. Good luck collecting property and income taxes on that ghost town.

Democrats tried for decades to kill America's cities.

Chairman Xi's disease showed them the way.

ITEM 7: United Press International reported, "Older adults who aren't interested or enthusiastic about their usual activities may have a higher risk of developing dementia, new research suggests.

"The nine-year study of more than 2,000 older adults -- average age 74 -- found that people with severe apathy -- a lack of interest or concern -- were 80% more likely to develop dementia during the study period than those with low apathy."

Meh.

ITEM 8: Which of the following reports surprised you least?

The New York Post reported, "Biden doesn’t get one question on Hunter Biden exposé at ABC News town hall."

The Daily Wire reported, "Savannah Guthrie Blasted For Hostile Behavior Toward Trump During Town Hall."

Hunter Biden will never go to prison. It is so sad. Maybe this ends in Term II.

ITEM 9: The Hill reported, "Sen. Dianne Feinstein's (D-Calif.) praise of her Republican colleague, Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), which she followed with a friendly hug, is stirring outrage on the left and prompting calls by prominent liberals for her to step down as the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats, liberal activists and left-leaning pundits, many of whom were dismayed that Democratic senators didn't put a tougher fight against President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett expressed outrage."

The reason Democrats did not put up a bigger fight is they don't want to lose any more states because of this farce. Just vote her in by unanimous consent and move on. You gotta know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em.

ITEM 10: The Daily Mail reported, "He may have been born in the USA, but Bruce Springsteen has joked that he'll move to Australia if Donald Trump is re-elected. The 20-time Grammy winner made the lighthearted comment on Wednesday during a virtual press conference promoting his new album, Letter to You. Springsteen, a longtime critic of the president, was asked by an Australian reporter if he would consider moving Down Under in the event of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden losing the election on November 3."

Promises, promises.

ITEM 11: The New York Post reported, "An unexpected star of President Trump’s Thursday night town hall event was a woman seated behind him in the audience — wearing a red mask and nodding along in agreement to most everything the president said.

"The unidentified spectator could be seen on the left-hand side of Trump, seemingly praising the president as he sparred with NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie."

Look for CNN to dox her and get her fired from her job. It's what Marxists do.

ITEM 12: Rusty Weiss reported that AOC shared her story of systemic racism.

She said, "as a Bronx resident, there have been many times, I mean, it’s almost a way of life where it can be very difficult to get access to fresh and healthy foods. I remember one of the early — earliest times, like, one of the worst stories I have about this is that I was very excited to make — I think I was making gazpacho or something like that. I looked at this recipe and I needed basil, and I was going home and I get off the subway station and I go into the grocery store and there’s no basil, no fresh basil in the grocery store. So then I walked to another grocery store two blocks down, no fresh basil. I was very stubborn about making this recipe that evening, and I must’ve been — I must’ve walked around for an hour in our neighborhoods, visiting four or five grocery stores, and there was no basil, no fresh basil in any of them. And it just goes to show, it’s very — it’s very illustrative of the difficulties that we have in our communities in accessing fresh produce. And even when we do or are able to access some of that fresh produce, a lot of times it’s on a styrofoam tray wrapped in plastic, or if you’re able to access it, it may have been sprayed with tons of pesticides and what have you, and it’s almost as though the good stuff, you have to travel all the way to affluent neighborhoods to do that."

Darned whiteys people, hoarding all that basil in their Affluent Neighborhoods.

Hmm, maybe if food stamps no longer covered buying potato chips and other snacks, poor people would start buying healthy foods and the stores would stock them.

Just what economics did Boston University teach her?

ITEM 13: Just the News reported, "The U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan has long been prized as one of the crown jewels of the Justice Department, a place where big Wall Street names are prosecuted and where prosecutors themselves can cement future advancement in politics and law.

"The office has given rise to future presidential candidates like Thomas Dewey and Rudy Giuliani, a future FBI Director in James Comey and long-serving crime fighters like Robert Morgenthau and Robert Fiske.

"But a string of recent rulings has stripped some of the luster off the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, as frustrated judges have accused prosecutors and the FBI agents who worked with them of improper leaking, dishonesty, or failure to disclose evidence of innocence to defendants.

"One of the more controversial rulings occurred on the watch of Obama-era U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whose office misled the court about FBI leaking in an insider stock case, Just the News recently reported.

"But the latest — and among the most severe — such rulings came in the last month, when U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan blasted the prosecutor's office for its conduct in an Iran sanctions case that began under Bharara but mostly occurred under the Trump administration's stewardship of the office starting with a 2018 indictment.

"The judge spared few words for the misconduct she uncovered in the prosecution of Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad, accusing the office of 'disclosure failures,' 'misstatements' and 'sweeping the Government's repeated failures under the rug.'

"In then end, Nathan wrote, the problems are a sign of a much more systemically flawed office that likely is failing in other cases as well by exhibiting a win at all cost mentality."

She is an Obama judge but federal prosecutors no longer are the heroes they once appeared to be. Under Saint Preet zero CEOs went to prison for financial shenanigans that led to the 2008-2009 market collapse.

The judge "demanded an investigation by the Department of Justice's Office of Professional Responsibility." A wrist will be slapped!

ITEM 14: The Hill reported, "Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), one of President Trump’s most outspoken critics, says he will vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Romney, who was the only Republican senator to vote to convict Trump on an article of impeachment in February, praised Barrett on Thursday, calling her impressive and exceptionally well qualified."

He said, "After meeting with Judge Barrett and carefully reviewing her record and her testimony, I intend to vote in favor of her confirmation to the Supreme Court."

So that's one Democrat vote for her...

ITEM 15: Chanel Rion of OAN tweeted, "Just saw for myself a behind the scenes look at the #HunterBiden hard drive:

"Drugs, underage obsessions, power deals...

"Druggie Hunter makes Anthony Weiner's down under selfie addiction look normal.

"#BidenCrimeFamily has a lot of apologizing to do.

"So does Big Tech."

Hmm. This story may have legs after all. We shall see.

ITEM 16: Reuters reported, "Brazilian police catch senator hiding cash between his buttcheeks, source says."

The story said, "Brazilian Senator Chico Rodrigues was caught in a police raid with money hidden between his buttcheeks on Wednesday, a judicial source briefed on the matter told Reuters, amid an investigation into the misuse of covid 19 response funding."

The crack down on corruption just got literal.

ITEM 17: John Nolte wrote, "Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris was forced to suspend campaign travel after her own communications director tested positive for the corona virus.

"Here we are, less than 20 days from the election, and the same campaign that just spent weeks shaming President Trump for catching a contagious virus is now itself partly grounded because of a viral outbreak in its own campaign."

Masks are theatrical virtue signaling. They don't work. I wear mine so my wife feels safe. But enough already.

ITEM 18: A reader wrote, "I came across this article today and it struck me as odd that Mr. Carville seems so sure of a Biden victory, despite being in such a similar situation as Hillary in 2016. I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts if you have the time."

OK. Let's see.

The Washington Examiner reported, "James Carville: Biden will be declared winner at '10:30 Eastern' on election night."

On September 1, 2016, Vanity Fair reported, "James Carville: The Republican Party Is Committing Suicide."

On October 8, 2016, Real Clear Politics reported, "James Carville: Trump Will 'Quit' The Race."

I now believe Bill Clinton won despite James Carville.

    2. Since when has basil been a vegetable? It had always been an herb as long as I can remember. Most grocery stores will have dried basil leaves.(That is all my mother ever used.) Many will have fresh basil in the produce department usually displayed at an aisle end. "Mom-and-Pop" stores probably will not carry fresh basil unless they are in a neighborhood that uses basil extensively.

  7. Item 1: Polls are products, manufactured to market requirements. This election season, the polls declaring Biden to be so far ahead are calculated to set up the narrative that Trump couldn't possibly have won the election legitimately, a continuation of the 2016 narrative. However, by overplaying the mail-in ballot issue, the Dems have likewise planted the seeds of doubt if somehow Biden is declared the winner. No way in hell rational, objective observers could look at the fundamentals on the ground and believe that Biden has a snowball's chance in a blast furnace of winning legitimately. ='[.]'=

  11. 2 - each rally seems to draw a lot of new supporters. I hope they follow up by Actually voting.

    8 - neither is a surprise. The Biden story doesn’t show up on the web site of any mainstream news web site.

    12 - There are markets everywhere in NYC and they all have tons of fresh vegetables and fruits. Many have their produce displayed on the sidewalk. The problem is all stores are SMALL. even the full sized grocery markets are SMALL due to how much real estate costs per square ft. And lack of space. You can’t put a giant Kroger or Super WalMart in NYC. Thus, you also have much a smaller inventory and fewer choices on products. Maybe they have to choose between multiple items and basil is the odd xe out.

    16 - I caught your crack at the end of the item.

That is why 99% of Americans of all walks of life use dried basil or jarred Pesto!

  15. #17. I wear a mask at work because work requires it. Mostly to avoid complaints/litigation from a few hysterical actors. I also wear the mask in public places like shopping in deference to my wife's 88 year old mother whom she visits frequently. As a microbiologist, I know that masks and social distancing afford little protection but I still practice these things just to get people to STFU. Cannot get a prescription for HCQ even though Africa has had it OTC for malaria for decades and nearly all African countries, with no masks and no social distancing, are largely unaffected by COVID.
    I am 66, have taken daily supplements for decades that include vitamin D and zinc, have exercised regularly for over 35 years, get plenty of fresh air and still test negative for COVID since last month.
    Everyone should still get the annual flu shot. Some studies suggest that it may also guard against COVID for some people.

  19. Item #8 - Since this story has mostly been from a domestic perspective, let me ask Don's friendly indulgence to look at this a little differently.

    Corruption is endemic in the world, and the "Anglosphere" countries have, over the past few centuries, been about the best in the world in clean government (really). Ukraine is a place that got much of the post-Soviet "scramble for state assets" stuff, and for the past 15 years they've been trying to clean things up to at least some degree.

    When the outsider President (Poroshenko - chocolate magnate actually) was elected, trying to get rid of corruption was one of his goals. And he did make a try; they had a special prosecutor looking into Burisma - which obviously required some courage on everyone's part.

    So what did Burisma do? First, they "hired" Hunter for their board. Then they gave him payments to set up a meeting with his dad. Then Joe goes to Kyiv and tells the Ukrainian government that if they don't drop the investigation and fire the prosecutor, $1B in aid and loan guarantees will be pulled.

    Think about it from the Ukrainian side after this happened. The VP of the United States came over and supported domestic corruption (as Americans, be embarrassed by this). It basically destroyed the anti-corruption drive, and caused Poroshenko's presidency to end in failure.

    When the new president (Zelensky) was elected last year, he too wanted to have a go at an anti-corruption drive. So no surprise that in his first conversation with PDJT, that was a core topic (were I PJDT, I would have offered to extradite Joe and Hunter to Ukraine for prosecution - talk about making a point!). (So, among other things, the Wile E. Coyote impeachment theater was another distraction to protect their own, Joe and Hunter.)

    Joe, Hunter, and company betrayed a nominal ally that is trying to clean up corruption - by supporting the corruption and protecting it in that country. This is disgusting from that perspective as well.

    In PDJT 2.0 starting next year, we need to make amends to Ukraine for what "our" (sic) government did to them back then.

  24. Not one word about Joe Biden’s Massive Bribery Scandal was spoken last night on ABC’s two-hour tongue-bath of the candidate. ABC News: “We Take the Candid Out of Candidate!”

    Even the NY Times felt compelled to mention the Clinton’s Bribery Empire once in 2016 before they buried it forever. But not this year.

    Facebook and Twitter aren’t the only ones censoring Americans. ABC is censoring itself, as is CNN, which is now the COVID News Network, full-time Fear Porn. They simply do not care their candidate is in the pay of foreign dictators.

    Even Uni-Party senators are in favor of Big Tech propagandizing and censoring the American people, for the Greater Good, of course. Isn’t it always?

    Razor: “Biden campaign says the Hunter story is debunked by Twitter, which relied on the Biden campaign, which is the logic behind how you get a FISA warrant.”

    Catch-45. It is indeed the Circular Logic of the Police State(tm), except this time in reverse:

    Then: “These stories we planted in the Press prove that we need to investigate Donald Trump!”

    Now: “The censorship of these stories in the Press prove that we don’t need to investigate Joe Biden!”

    BTW, it’s not a “Hunter story”. It’s a “Joe”-story.

    I don’t think they can get away with it. But I do think they’re going to try like hell.
