Highlights of the News



Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1: The Daily Mail reported, "The solar system will put on a show for sky watchers this week, with all seven planets beyond Earth visible in the night sky at some point over the next seven days.

"Venus will be the brightest of the worlds, but Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be visible to the naked eye and Uranus and Neptune visible with binoculars. 

"Mars, Saturn and Jupiter will be best viewed in the evenings and, assuming the clouds hold off and the sky is clear, Venus will be unmissable in the morning sky."

And we had a blue moon on Saturday. Neat.

ITEM 2: CNBC reported, "Cellular, or T-cell, immunity against Covid-19 is likely to be present within most adults six months after primary infection, a new study said.

"Research by the U.K. Coronavirus Immunology Consortium (UK-CIC), Public Health England and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust has found 'robust T-cell responses' to the corona virus six months after infection.

"T-cells are a part of our immune system that attack cells which have been infected with a virus or other kind of pathogen and they help other antibody-producing cells in the immune system. Scientists have been investigating T-cell responses to the corona virus to see how lasting any immune response might be in individuals who have caught, and recovered from, Covid-19."

So herd immunity would have worked. 

We could have used this information six months ago.

Why do we have a CDC and Fauci's bureaucracy if they won't tell us stuff like this?

ITEM 3: Zero Hedge reported, "Did China Just Suspend The World's Biggest IPO As Retaliation Against Jack Ma?"

Do ducks have webbed feet?

Those "Chinese billionaires" are held hostage to the communists just like everyone else in Red China. 

Oh, sure, he could move and live in Monte Carlo or someplace, but they still have his family and besides, they can always track him down. Think of Red China as a bigger North Korea because that is what it is.

ITEM 4: Just the News reported, "President Trump signed an executive order on Monday that seeks to promote patriotic education about the nation's history.

"The order calls for the creation of the President's Advisory 1776 Commission which will be tasked with producing a report pertaining to the key principles of the country's "founding and how these principles may be understood to further enjoyment of 'the blessings of liberty' and to promote our striving 'to form a more perfect Union.'"

"The commission will furnish recommendations about fostering patriotic education at federal locations, some of which include National Monuments and Parks. It will develop an award meant to acknowledge student understanding of issues pertaining to the nation's founding."

No more Karl Marx's Improbable History in our schools.

ITEM 5: United Press International reported, "Newly confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett officially began her tenure on the Supreme Court Tuesday, participating in oral arguments in a case examining life sentences issued to juvenile offenders."

The story said, "During arguments, Barrett questioned attorney David Shapiro, representing defendant Brett Jones, who received a life sentence without parole for murdering his grandfather with a kitchen knife in 2004 when he was 15 years old.

"Barrett also questioned Krissy Nobile, deputy solicitor general for the state of Mississippi, which is seeking to uphold its life sentencing of Jones."

Grandpa's dead because a knife used by a 15-year-old is as lethal as one used by an 18-year-old.

ITEM 6: United Press International reported, "Jack Dorsey remains CEO of Twitter after board members voted to keep the current CEO structure, but the company is looking at a CEO succession plan, it said.

"In a filing Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company announced that the board had 'expressed its confidence in management and recommended that the current structure remain in place.'

"Members of activist hedge fund Elliot Management, which owns a 4% stock in Twitter, had questioned Dorsey's effectiveness, since he is also the CEO of finance tech company Square.

"Activist investor Paul Singer had also challenged Dorsey's stated plan to move to Africa for 3-6 months because the continent was the future. The Africa plan was later scrapped."

Dorsey is too busy censoring conservatives to do his real job.

Fire him.

ITEM 7: Syfy reported, "Since they first appeared back in 1912, Nabisco's Oreo cookies have been one of the most beloved snack foods on the planet, with an estimated 34 billion of the little creme-filled delights now sold worldwide every year in over 100 countries.

"With news of an Election Day asteroid passing by Earth on November 2, the company is taking no chances with its best-selling treasures and has recently constructed a special concrete bunker in the permafrost of Svalbard, Norway to stash away a huge stockpile of iconic Oreos, alongside a copy of its secret recipe in case of an apocalyptic impact."

If the world comes to an end, who is going to buy them?

ITEM 8: The New York Post reported, "The city of Wichita has seen a 70% increase in suicides this year and police officials said Monday stress caused by the corona virus outbreak is likely a major factor.

"As of Friday, the city has recorded 76 suicides this year, up from 44 at the same time last year and 59 in all of 2019, police spokesman Officer Paul Cruz said. The suicides include 44 using a gun, compared with 30 total suicides using a gun last year.

"There have been 367 total suicide attempts so far this year, Cruz said.

"Detective James Hook, the department’s mental health liaison, speculated the increase likely was the result of stress from the corona virus pandemic, such as quarantines, social activities being canceled and job losses."

We never should have locked down.

Fire Fauci?

I want him prosecuted.

ITEM 9: NBC News reported, "Wall Street opened on a high note Tuesday as investors expressed confidence that a clear winner would be declared in the U.S. election and that a fiscal stimulus deal would be swiftly passed.

"The Dow Jones Industrial Average soared by more than 600 points on Election Day morning, with the S&P 500 gaining 1.9 percent and the Nasdaq composite rising by around 1.5%."

Yep.

Stock traders are the political pollsters of the financial world.

ITEM 10: The Good News Network reported, "Chameleons Not Seen By Scientists For 100 Years Found in a Madagascar Hotel Garden."

Those chameleons are good.

ITEM 11: Life Site News reported, "The Planned Parenthood abortion chain cannot come to Guatemala, the president of the Central American country announced Monday.

"Guatemala protects unborn babies by prohibiting abortions, and President Alejandro Giammattei insisted that it will continue to do so, AFP reports. On Monday, Giammattei said he repealed a government agreement with Planned Parenthood that would have allowed it to open in the country."

Nobody wants those ghouls.

ITEM 12: CNS News reported, "A new report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) shows that since 2016, approximately 749 MS-13 gang members have been prosecuted in the United States. The report further shows that 74% of these gang members, or about 554 persons, are illegal aliens. 

"The report, Full Scale Response: A Report on the Department’s Efforts to Combat MS-13 from 2016-2020, reveals that of the 749 MS-13 gang members prosecuted so far, more than 500 have been convicted. Among those, 37 have received life sentences."

Donald Trump was not racist when he said illegal aliens include rapists and murderers.

The media went bonkers only because he told the truth.

This crackdown saves Hispanic lives because crime is the last segregated industry. Most whites are killed by whites. Most blacks are killed by blacks. The same with Hispanics.

ITEM 13: CNSNews.com reported, "COVID-involved deaths in recent weeks are well below the numbers recorded this past summer, based on death certificates submitted to the National Center for Health Statistics, which is part of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"For the week ending September 26, 3,809 COVID-involved deaths were reported to NCHS on a preliminary basis.

"That is 30% below the 5,466 COVID deaths recorded in the week ending August 29; 53.01 percent below the 8,106 deaths recorded in the week ending July 25; roughly equivalent to the 3,791 deaths reported for the week ending June 27; 37% below the 6,120 deaths recorded in the week ending May 30; and 77% below the record 17,082 COVID deaths recorded for the week ending April 18."

The crisis passed in April. We should have re-opened then.

The good news is the virus is less deadly now.

ITEM 14: There was an election yesterday. Perhaps you heard. In the Kentucky senate race, Amy McGrath outspent Mitch McConnell $84 million to $53 million.

2 years ago, Beto outspent Ted Cruz $80 million to $39 million and finished second in their race.

It is nice to know that performance is more important than TV ads.

ITEM 15: The biggest loser on Election Night was the American voter who re-elected President Trump but may have that vote cancelled by the crooks in Pennsylvania and Michigan, and the courts.

ITEM 16: Matt Mackowiak tweeted, "The final Washington Post / ABC News poll in Wisconsin released less than a week from the election had Biden +17. With 54% in, Trump is up 5. 

"Who’s getting fired?"

We know the answer. Sullivan v. New York Times killed press accountability.

ITEM 17: The mainstream polls were off by more than the margin of error.

I kept citing Trafalgar Group. I don't believe in misleading readers.

Mail-in voting should die a quick death. Americans don't want to wait for days or weeks to find out who the president is.

Democrats stopped counting votes rather than admit We the People re-elected President Trump.

  2. Of the total 538 Electoral votes, Biden has 238, and Trump has 213, with 87 Electoral votes in process.

    Here is the 'in process', however, my math is off by 1:

    Pennsylvania: 20
    Michigan: 16
    Georgia: 16
    North Carolina: 15
    Wisconsin: 10
    Nevada: 6
    Alaska: 3
    Total: 86

    I, too, am surprised the silent majority did not put Trump over the top, as anticipated.

    Trump won Florida which was significant, and I do believe Trump will win, however, not by the landslide as we had all hoped for.

    The boat parades, the car parades, and even the Amish buggies were all for real.

    The economy is for real.

    Hunter Biden's laptop is for real.

    This is a bit perplxing.

    No one worked harder for reelection than Donald Trump.

    Biden..., Not even 'phoning it in'.

  4. By Dex Bahr in American Thinker:
    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/11/election_night_reveals_three_disturbing_facts.html

    Fox News should be forever viewed by conservatives as the enemy. Its early calls for states for Biden that had not finished voting such as Arizona and Virginia and their slow–walking of states which Trump decisively won like Florida, Texas and Ohio, was an absolute disgrace. By sitting on the results of states like Georgia and North Carolina, states that, of this writing, showed Trump with narrow leads with 99 percent of the precincts in, Fox allowed Biden to gain momentum while slowing Trump’s dominance. It looks like the influence of RINO Paul Ryan as a Fox Corporation board member and the legacy of analyst Bill Sammon (Fox News VP Politics) resulted in a psy-ops (psychological operations) campaign against conservative morale. Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs should go to other networks rather than being associated with this betrayer of its conservative audience. Fox News should be shunned by all conservatives from this day forward and they should throw viewership to OANN (One America News Network) and Newsmax.

    DITTOS!

    2. They had no idea they were voting against those things. The corrupted media hid everything negative about the Democratic party and convinced them they were voting for "decency" and "inclusiveness" etc.

      We have a huge educational project ahead of us. We have to engage and connect with people on the left, and wake them up, one person at a time. And do it with kindness, patience, and respect, or they will run away. Get on their wavelength first until you can find an opening to their underlying intelligence, that allows you to genuinely connect with them in a supportive (not combative) way, then begin expanding their knowledge level and news sources.

      No way around it, we have to untangle their indoctrination, and it has to be done by sincerely linking with the good and intelligent side of them, which, for most people, thankfully DOES exist.

  9. Abortion is the foot in the door for the communist religion. A woman who killed her baby and wants to feel okay about it will do anything the cult tells her to do. Eventually you have 60 million dead babies and an army of women who have to vote democrat or face the risk of being called out on the murder of their own children.

    2. Absolutely. Every human has an instinctive craving to feel good about themselves. The Left first seduces people to immoral behavior that creates a deep inner distress (abortion, hookup culture, buying into victimhood, etc.) then offers them a way to feel righteous again by adopting leftist political positions.

      It is one of the effects of the decline in religion. Without a relationship with God and some spiritual grounding, they are ripe for seduction to the substitute religion of Marxism.

  16. I wonder where they all went? All those at the Trump rallies who were newly registered to vote or had previously voted D; all the Latino and black voters... even with all of these it wasn't enough? Something smells funky here. I wonder how many of those D "early votes" and mail votes were quadruple ones, dead people, or from the lists of dog licenses. Is it possible that when the D's saw the huge crowds and the melting away of their black-Latino votes, that they began cranking out the fakes? Somebody should compare the number of votes to the actual number of residents.

  18. In the presidential race, my home state of New York voted as expected. However, Staten Island ousted its Democrat representative after only on term.

  19. What is interesting is that poll numbers were to be considered as highly dubious, with the same accuracy as was in 2016.
