Highlights of the News


Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1: President Trump's weekend schedule is holding Make America Great Again Victory Rallies in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Wisconsin.

He's 74. He contracted covid 19 just 30 days ago.

Vote and pray.

ITEM 2: Two funny posts by Busted Nuckles. First. Second.

Not news?

If jokes aren't news, then why are there so many stories published about polls?

ITEM 3: First Lady Melania Trump: “We are a country of hope, not a country of fear or weakness.”

We were founded on hope. 400 years ago, 100 Pilgrims packed into a wooden cargo ship and headed for America. After 2 weeks, it was leaking so badly, they had to turn back. They got another cargo ship, the Mayflower, and tried again.

66 days later they arrived at Plymouth Rock.

They almost starved the first year, but they had faith in The Lord and themselves. And when they made it, they held a Thanksgiving to thank the Lord.

They were legal immigrants. Just like the First Lady.

ITEM 4: Biden said, “I’ll lead an effective strategy to mobilize trunalimunumaprzure.”

At least Iron Butterfly had an excuse. They were drunk when they wrote "Inna Gadda Da Vida."

(Great song by the way.)

ITEM 5: If this doesn't move you, then I don't want you as a reader.



You never know the mountain a man had to climb to get where he is.

ITEM 6: The Right Scoop reported, "BREAKING: Twitter RELENTS, allows @NYPOST account BACK on Twitter! Update: The Post Tweets!"

That 20% drop in Twitter's stock price got their attention.

ITEM 7: Breitbart reported, "Vice President Joe Biden addressed a drive-in rally Friday afternoon in a parking lot in St. Paul, Minnesota — and was drowned out by the honking of Donald Trump supporters in their cars."

The state has not backed a Republican presidential candidate in 48 years.

Biden said, "These guys are not very polite, but they’re like Trump."

Darned straight.

ITEM 8: WJRT reported, "Former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden will be in Flint on Saturday.

"They are planning to take part in a drive-in event around 1:45 p.m. at an undisclosed location. The event is closed to the public, but will be live-streamed on the Biden-Harris campaign website."

Closed rallies at undisclosed locations?

Obama has Biden hiding from Trump supporters, who would outnumber his. Obama once again shows his Wile E. Coyote-level genius

ITEM 9: Bloomberg reported, "Senior officials on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign are increasingly worried about insufficient black and Latino voter turnout in key states like Florida and Pennsylvania with only four days until the election, according to people familiar with the matter.

"Despite record early-vote turnout around the country, there are warning signs for Biden. In Arizona, two-thirds of Latino registered voters have not yet cast a ballot. In Florida, half of Latino and Black registered voters have not yet voted but more than half of White voters have cast ballots, according to data from Catalist, a Democratic data firm. In Pennsylvania, nearly 75% of registered black voters have not yet voted, the data shows.

"The firm’s analysis of early vote numbers also show a surge of non-college educated White voters, who largely back President Donald Trump, compared to voters of color, who overwhelmingly support Biden.

"The situation is particularly stark in Florida where Republicans currently have a 9.4% turnout advantage in Miami-Dade County, a place where analysts say Biden will need a significant margin of victory to carry the state."

Hillary carried Miami-Dade County by 30 points and 290,000 votes.

ITEM 10: The Miami Herald reported, "If you’ve ever wanted to dance to YMCA on an airport runway after midnight, President Donald Trump has you covered. Trump’s campaign on Friday announced that the president will attend an 11:30 PM rally on Sunday, Nov. 1, at Opa-locka Executive Airport, part of a frenetic, 48-hour, cross-country tour. 

"The Opa-locka stop will be the end of a five-rally day for the president after events in Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina and Georgia. The rally is expected to be Trump’s final South Florida appearance before Election Day. On Monday, he’s scheduled to appear in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan."

The president announces his rallies well in advance.

Donald Trump ain't hidin' because he ain't Biden.

ITEM 11: CNBC reported, "Starting Dec. 2, McDonald’s McRib is returning to menus nationwide for the first time since 2012.

"The limited-time pork sandwich is brought back every year but is notoriously hard to find. McDonald’s even released its own McRib locator app to help customers locate restaurants that sold it.

"The fast-food giant brought the McRib to 10,000 of its 14,000 U.S. restaurants last year in its biggest rollout since 2012. The item has been appearing on McDonald’s menus in the U.S. since 1982, helping the chain attract customers to its restaurants during the holiday season."

Greasy cardboard with catsup and onions.

ITEM 12: Fox News reported, "Austin has seen a spike in violent crime and officer retirements after the city council voted over the summer to immediately slash $20 million from the police department budget, becoming the first major Texas city to do so. 

"In August, Austin City Council members voted unanimously to cut about $150 million, or roughly one-third, from its police department and allocate those funds to areas like violence prevention, housing and mental health services. Only about $21.5 million was immediately removed from the department's funding in part by canceling three upcoming cadet classes and slashing overtime expenses."

I thought Keep Austin Weird was a figure of speech. Now they have gone crazy.

ITEM 13CNBC reported, "The Dow and S&P 500 fell 6.5% and 5.6%, respectively, and posted their biggest weekly losses since March. The Nasdaq lost more than 5% over that time period and also had its worst one-week performance since March."

Big drops on Monday and Tuesday won't matter politically because Trump supporters already made a pile since we elected him 4 years ago.

ITEM 14: Israelis for Trump make a Run to the Wall. The original one. Charleston, West Virginia, will have a Trump parade from the Big Lots parking lot on Patrick Street Sunday at 3:15. Too cold for the top down? We shall see.

ITEM 15: United Press International reported, "Walmart said Friday it's returning guns and ammunition to the shelves of its stores, one day after pulling the products over fears of store break-ins and thefts during potential civic unrest.

"Walmart spokesman Kory Lundberg said the big box store reversed its decision to move the products after determining the threat wasn't as widespread as it initially feared."

Sam Walton knew when hunting season starts.

These people must all have MBAs.

ITEM 16: Jonathan Turley reported, "We previously discussed the effort at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to have the famous statue of Abraham Lincoln removed as racist.  The student government has now voted unanimously in favor of a resolution that calls for the removal of the Abraham Lincoln statue on campus. The students declared that the president who signed the Emancipation Proclamation, advocated for the 13th Amendment, and led the war against the South and slavery was 'not pro-black' and a 'remnant of white supremacy.'  That would likely have come as something of a surprise to John Wilkes Booth."

Taxpayers are getting gypped by supporting this institute of unlearning.

ITEM 17: The New York Post reported, "The Drudge Report posted a 45% decline in web traffic in September as the site alienated its core readers by turning against President Trump ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

"The data — derived from comScore, which tracks the industry — were released in a report by The Righting, a website that analyzes traffic to right-leaning websites. The Righting told The Post that the Drudge Report had 1,291,000 unique visitors in September, according to data supplied by comScore, down from 2,340,000 in the same month a year ago.

"September’s eye-popping decline marks the ninth month in a row that the political news aggregation website run by reclusive founder Matt Drudge has seen traffic fall, The Righting said."


ITEM 18: The latest Trafalgar Group polls have President Trump up 2.5 points in Arizona, down 3.2 in Nevada, and down 0.4 in Wisconsin.

Today is the last day for early voting in West Virginia. We did it before. We will do it again.

ITEM 19: Breitbart reported, "A second laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, was reportedly seized in February during a raid on a psychiatrist by the Drug Enforcement Administration."

First the FBI has one. Now this. Everybody seems to have a Hunter Biden laptop except Hunter Biden.

FINALLYTrunalimunumaprze is now the most popular password among conservatives.

  2. I argue that twitter's plan was going to hold the NY Post's account until the Friday before the election. I say this because yesterday at 5 pm local time, the Gov queen emperor of New Mexico used the Amber Alert system to cancel Halloween. No joke, she said we are not allowed to even go to other people's houses. Waiting until 5 pm on a Friday before the election is par for the course, and was the plan all along.

  5. #9 Low voter turnout amongst black and hispanic constituencies who normally vote democrat are votes against Trump withheld. It's a reflection of dissatisfaction with Biden or approval of Trump. Either way, democrats are wasting their time trying to motivate those voters. Their ballot is cast by sitting this one out.

    Item 10: A five-rally day with stops ranging from Wisconsin to Florida! Compare that to Biden’s super secret closed event mentioned above. Joe isn’t fit to shine President D. J. Trump’s shoes.

    1. ITEM 12: Austin

      Recently the Austin Republican party announced that they are getting record financial contributions - primarily from Democrats in the area. They are concerned that Austin becomes the new Portland.

      Let's see how they vote.

We lost the house in '18 because a lot of swamp critters bolted, and the "D's" swept in. Draining the swamp is a decades long project, but I expect the next four years will vastly accelerate it.

    Item #9: "Senior officials on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign are increasingly worried..."

    There's only four days left. The time to be "increasingly worried" was back in August.

    Item #10: Trump's campaigning in Florida (and in 57 other states, practically simultaneously).

    The Bidenettes are anxiously scanning the Weather Channel radar and praying for an instant hurricane. Or at the very least, a violent storm that chased Biden off the stage in Florida a couple of days ago.

    Item #11: McDonalds? No thanks. I'm stickin' with BurgerTrump.

    Finally: "Trunalimunumaprzure" is funny as well, but "Boston College 28, Clemson 13 Halftime" isn't going over very big in South Carolina right at the moment (Clemson is a 24 1/2 point fave).

    Not to worry. Biden's half-time pep in the Tigers locker room will set things straight.

    ***
    Bonus: Steve Cohen (new NY Mets owner), Hinch (Detroit Tigers new manager) and Tony La Russa (Chicago White Sox new manager) never make it to the finish line. The Vegas prop should be which one drops out first.

    #19- A well-known someone on Twatter, who is usually far from obtuse, said that it was unreasonable to think that Hunter Biden would've forgotten to pick up his laptop. He suspected it was planted. SMH! Apparently this well-known tweetster forgot that Hunter is a coke & meth addict, and is mostly spun out most of the time, even when he's um, ah,- multi-tasking... so to speak.
