Highlights of the News

Donald John Trump is still our president. If he can fight back at 74, so can we.

ITEM 1: Polls show Hillary will be re-elected.

I had that line in the back of my mind but never could work it into a post.

Oh and Katie Pavlich tweeted, "Trump’s lawyers beat Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel and impeachment. I wouldn’t count them out."

I want Sidney Powell, nevertheless.

ITEM 2: Just the News reported, "The U.S. on Wednesday formally left the Paris Agreement, an agreement among nations to reduce carbon emissions connected to climate change.

"President Trump has long been opposed the 2015 accord and made the decision last year to exit. Roughly 189 other countries remain in the deal, with the set goal of keeping the increase in average temperatures worldwide below 2 degrees Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit."

The agreement allows Red China to expand at pace while Europe retrofits its industry to fix an imaginary problem.

Marxists told us we had only 10 years left -- 20 years ago

ITEM 3: Glenn Reynolds reported, "A reader emails: 'Could not agree more with your reader who is angry with Fox for having its coverage run by partisan Dems. I changed over to Newsmax TV and have never looked back. They’ve been solid all night, calm, and following the data. More interesting experts on too.' I think last night was a big breakthrough for Newsmax TV. We’d never watched it before, and I’m hearing good things about it from a lot of people who had never watched it before."

I understand most of the complaints are about Chris Stirewalt.

I worked with the man in his newspaper days.

I am not surprised.

ITEM 4: Yahoo reported, "The markets rallied on Wednesday on the prospect of a divided Congress and a lower likelihood of tax hikes or regulations. But as Americans await the results of the presidential election, the possibility of a contested outcome is growing likelier by the second.

"'I find the market a little bit too sanguine at the moment as we could well be on the brink of a very protractive, painful, process that will make the year 2000 election look like a walk in the park,' Niall Ferguson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institute told Yahoo Finance Live."

Democrats have infiltrated and taken over the stock market.

Occupy Wall Street is a reality now.

ITEM 5: A reader called this proof of the deep state.

The Democrat Party is now the party of the privileged people.

ITEM 6: The Hill reported, "Error in Arizona: 86% of vote in, not 98%."

But we are supposed to trust their other math.

They remind me of the blond who could not count to 2 with her blouse on.

ITEM 7: The Associated Press reported, "President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign long maintained there were thousands of new supporters tucked into rural, red pockets of the country who would come out and vote for the president when asked.

"On Election Day, it put up some proof.

"With the race unsettled in several key battlegrounds, Trump’s strong Election Day surge may not be enough to overcome a Democratic operation that also turned out its vote. With votes still being counted, the total turnout has already surpassed 2016 levels.

"But the tight presidential races and unexpected Democratic losses in congressional races demonstrated the resilient power of Trump’s appeal with rural, white voters and a growing polarization that may outlast his leadership."

Black support up. Hispanic support up. White support down. But that does not fit the narrative.

Rural America re-elected the president. We will see if the courts allow it.

ITEM 8: Breitbart reported, "Absentee ballot counting in Detroit descended into chaos on Wednesday when hundreds of unofficial Republican observers concerned about fraud converged on the counting location.

"The city of Detroit is using the TCF Center — formerly Cobo Hall — to count all of the absentee ballots in the city.

"Republicans and Trump supporters grew alarmed as Trump was holding a strong lead in the state during early counting Tuesday evening, only for it to evaporate as mailed-in ballots were counted in historically Democrat areas.

"Several videos posted on social media show workers attempting to restrict transparency and not allow people outside to observe what was going on inside the counting area."

Pay no attention to the man behind the Iron Curtain.

ITEM 9: The Washington Times reported, "The Supreme Court ordered Pennsylvania Democrats to respond by Thursday evening in a case challenging the state’s three-day extension for counting mail-in ballots.

"President Trump has moved to intervene in a lawsuit brought by Pennsylvania Republicans, arguing the state’s Democratic Party and Secretary of State violated the law by extending the time for counting mail-in ballots to Nov. 6 at 5 p.m., despite the state legislature setting the deadline as Election Day.

"The lawsuit takes issue with a state Supreme Court ruling that postmarked ballots be presumed to have been mailed before Nov. 3, even if not clearly postmarked to that effect."

Three Trump appointees will decide the case.

Thank you, Mitch McConnell.

ITEM 10: The Hill reported, "House Republicans may not have taken back control of the lower chamber, but GOP lawmakers say they see the party's sizable gains as a promising sign they can take back the House in 2022. Political handicappers, in the days leading up to Nov. 3, projected GOP losses of between five and 20 seats, and the ultimate results left some within the GOP stunned by the unexpected success and with how the party significantly broadened the conference’s diversity and increased the number of female members."

Getting women to vote Republican is easy. Recruit good Republican women candidates.

ITEM 11: Yahoo reported, "As of Wednesday afternoon, we still don’t know for sure who the next U.S. president will be. That’s because — as expected — key states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona and Georgia haven’t finished counting their votes. 

"But one thing is clear, even now: Pollsters systematically underestimated President Trump’s support — again. This time, they missed by an even bigger margin than in 2016. And Yahoo News was no exception; our final YouGov poll gave Democrat Joe Biden a 10-point lead. 

"And so even if Trump doesn’t beat Biden, he has largely beaten his pre-election polls.

"The question is why almost everyone was off."

Because they were designed that way. Democrats used them as propaganda.

ITEM 12: reported, "GOP pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News on Wednesday that the polls were so wrong in their predictions about the election that some are calling for an investigation of pollsters.

"Bret Baier reminded Luntz that around the time of the debate, he said that if the polling was really wrong, it could be the end of the industry."

What's to investigate?

We all know they lied.

Especially Fox.

ITEM 13: Life News reported, "Pro-life U.S. Congressman Chip Roy easily defeated Democrat challenger Wendy Davis, a well-known abortion activist, on Tuesday in what was considered a hotly contested Texas race.

"The San Antonio Express-News reports Roy won the 21st Congressional District of Texas by more than 6 points.

"Roy has a 100-percent pro-life voting record from the National Right to Life Committee. His key votes include supporting the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and rejecting taxpayer funding to pro-abortion groups.

"On Wednesday morning, the Susan B. Anthony List, which endorsed him, congratulated the congressman on winning another term."

Abortion Barbie loses again as Texas gets redder.

ITEM 14: Life News reported, "Pro-life Montana Sen. Steve Daines easily defeated his pro-abortion challenger Tuesday in a race that Democrat leaders had hoped would help them regain control of the Senate.

The Daily Wire reports Daines won re-election against Gov. Steve Bullock, a pro-abortion Democrat.

Infamously, Bullock vetoed legislation in 2019 that would have protected newborn babies from infanticide. The Montana Born-Alive Infants Protection Act simply would have required that babies who survive abortions be provided with the same medical care as any other infant born at that stage of development."

Montanans remembered that. Contrary to news reports, Montana is a purple state, not red. Don't be fooled by presidential election outcomes.

ITEM 15: Zero Hedge reported, "People and companies are leaving American cities in droves. An urban exodus could persist for a couple of years as the virus pandemic and resulting socio-economic implosion has exacerbated quality of life problems -- violent crime, homelessness, rising taxes, and high cost of living -- those were some of the reasons, even before the pandemic, forcing city dwellers to rural communities."

Woke CEOs will turn the suburbs into sanctuary cities and CHOP/CHAZ areas in a decade.

But there will be a housing bubble. I suggest homeowners exploit this -- and move as far away as possible.


  1. #6. Politicians who can't count to one with their pants zipped.

    1. #6 The blond who couldn't alphabetize a bag of M&Ms.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. Yes, but do the 3's go before the E's or after the W's?

    4. There's a video making the rounds starring Chelsea Handler, topless; she counted her boobies & couldn't get past one!

      So Dem blondes with TDS can't count to two even with their blouses off- and I don't think she's unusual!

    5. "Politicians who can't count to one with their pants zipped."

      If their zippers are open, the count is STILL zero.

      Don Reed

  2. Don, could you give us a post-mortem on your election prediction? (Perhaps I missed it?)

    1. >>> He can do it after me...I had 36 States in 2016, and 42 States in 2020 for our President...I always naively had more faith in my country. ZB

    2. You've lost your country.

      Just wait until Bidet opens the floodgates to Third Worlders and dumps us back into the Paris Climate Scam.

      "A Republic--if you can keep it!"

    3. We might as well turn in our guns now. Not!

    4. J, your concern is noted.

      And dismissed; so are you. Go stink up some other blog with your defeatism!

  3. the fact that the Dems are still scrambling and even if SloJoe and round heels get in the do not have a mandate (and never will) .
    They also believe their own Bravo Sierra that Trump is stupid and Lazy. He is neither. Texas is the countrie's guiding Lone Star.Except whe Abortion Barbie sailed her pink plastic Tianaic into the Styrofoam Iceberg.Again.

    1. Rutherford B. Hayes' ghost is, "... laughing with delight." ZB (Hat tip Mr. McLean)

  4. #11 It was by design to account for the massive fraud being planned. This is Obama voter fraud on steroids being done, and they don't care how obvious they are about it.

    Nothing was done when Obama did it. Nothing was done when they stole the House in 2018 with fraud, so we now see that Il Duce Pelosi was in on the plan, along with Biden - his remarks were him telling the truth about having the best fraud experts, and hers about guaranteeing that Trump would not be reelected were tells.

    If elections count they wouldn't let us do them. They underestimated the fraud needed with Hillary. They overplayed their hand with obvious fraud this time, but it may be that they just don't care that people know their votes don't mean a thing because they can steal elections.

    I hope the fraud will push Dementia Joe out, but I do not feel confidence in the will of the people being honored. Since when has the swamp ever cared about us?

    1. Could not agree with you more Old Goat. The amount of fraud required to overcome the coming Trumpslide was massive. More than any before. Which will lead to mistakes. And that will be the undoing, once they are identified.

    2. Every worm PDJT sent packing is popping off...1st Christie, now the little worm, Rubio. zb

    3. VSGPDJT has been talking about this coming fraud for months, in every rally he's held.

      Does anyone actually believe that he's going to lie down & let them steamroller him? Don't you know who Donald J. Trump is even now?

      Oh ye of little faith! Grab some popcorn, the fireworks are coming soon, and I for one plan to enjoy them!

  5. I have given up entirely on Fox. Was once a devoted defender. Now a jilted lover.

    Fox dumped me for a poorly educated but well indoctrinated, gender confused, self-important delusional child of the elites. May they have an interesting union.

    1. True. Tucker and Hannity should move over to AON/similar network and start fresh.


  6. I've said before a couple of times and had the comment disappeared...

    It's not that PDJT lost and The Big Guy won. Even if there's not one fraudulent ballot in the lot of them.
    This outcome is the proof that the cabal of the leftists the tech titans and the propagandists have enough control of the information flow to create the desired outcome.
    Joe Biden is suffering dementia and barely campaigned. Chose an awful running mate and went up against the most successful president perhaps ever. And better than half of the electorate went down to vote the bumbling crude fascist out of office.
    That's the power of controlling the information and the narrative.

    1. If true, you would be correct. But you are not correct, because Slow Joe's numbers are the result of massive fraud, that is now, too massive to deny. All that matters now, are the investigations of the fraud, and court cases. Trump has the law on his side. As Don states over and over, don't bet against Trump.

    2. Watch, not one Republican will stand up for the President. I have never lost faith in the President. The Party that he has fortified and saved from permanent minority status will abandon him to die on that hill fighting alone. zb

    3. I hope you are wrong xxx. There are a lot of Rep that have rode his coattails. If they don't show up, it will come back to bite them in the ass.

    4. Regardless of final vote tally.
      Regardless of any vote fraud.
      Regardless of the outcome of the lawsuits.
      This would not have been and should not have been anything other than a landslide for PDJT.
      Half the people in this country
      think he supports white supremacy. Or to put it another way, could you get your news from ABC NBC CBS CNN MSNBC and be well informed? How about the news twitter Google and Facebook feature?

      And so far I haven't brought up the collusion of the FBI CIA and NSA.
      I hope I'm wrong, but we may be past the point of fixing this at the ballot box or petitioning our govt.

    5. I don't remember where I read it, but there was one Rep. Congresscritter who tried to enter an counting area and was denied access. So, at least one is working on the steal.

    6. Well said. That's why Trump needs to win. My new name for Biden is White Corpse Bad.

  7. Item 1 : "I want Sidney Powell, nevertheless."
    I read somewhere this morning that she is on the Trump team?

  8. I hope our lawyers are better than their lawyers and we go before fair judges. Maybe it won’t go all the way to the supremes, but if it does, I feel good. No matter what, when PDJT prevails, the media and democrats (I repeat myself) will call him illegitimate.

    1. I don't care what those temper tantrum throwing toddlers call him.

      The question is how long are we going to put up with their hate filled, destructive behavior?

      The best thing to do is ignore the temper tantrum throwing toddler until they wear themselves out. Once their behavior becomes destructive action must be taken to avoid damage and injury to others and themselves. We have been past that point for years.

      I, for one, have had enough of the lot of them. I'm tired of these idiots. We've put up with their crap for decades. It's time to put an end to it.

    2. WHEN. When. Great post, my Schlong-filled brother.

  9. Niall Ferguson? Man, he was a GREAT lead singer and wrote some very clever tunes for that group Oasis! Psyche. That was Liam Galather. This song popped into my head when I read your bit, though, and the lyrics are hauntingly relevant...

    Today is gonna be the day
    That they're gonna throw it back to you
    By now you should've somehow
    Realized what you gotta do
    I don't believe that anybody
    Feels the way I do, about you now
    Backbeat, the word was on the street
    That the fire in your heart is out
    I'm sure you've heard it all before
    But you never really had a doubt
    I don't believe that anybody
    Feels the way I do about you now
    And all the roads we have to walk are winding
    And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
    There are many things that I
    Would like to say to you but I don't know how
    Because maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me
    And after all, you're my wonderwall

    It’s now VSGGDJT. Very Stable Genius General Donald John Trump.

    1. Wake up the dawn and ask her why
      A dreamer dreams she never dies
      Wipe that tear away now from your eye...

  10. I live in WI. My phone is set to give "breaking local news".

    The very 1st thing I saw when I woke up this morning was breaking news that Trump had ordered a recount "even though that won't change anything".

    I think I'd better change my phone setting. Breaking news just "broke" my morning.

    1. Pay no attention to the gaslighting media. They have been gaslighting you to accept that Slow Joe was ahead in the polls to justify the massive fraud that was going to be required in order to push Slow Joe over the finish line. No way, no how, does Slow Joe ever set the record of votes received over Obumbles. There was no where near the amount of enthusiasm for Slow Joe that Obumbles had back in 2008. Nor would he have inspired the record turnouts in the areas of the massive fraud. 80-90% turnout rates are outliers. They blew this badly. But, that is what Trump does to people who suffer TDS. He gets them to expose themselves. Hell, Slow Joe even admitted to the expanse of their fraud machine prior to the election, in one of his more truthful mumblings. Do not bet against Trump.

  11. I must admit, at this time yesterday I was feeling very angry, resentful and hopeless about what had happened, but after reading Don, Rush, and listening to Chris Plante I feel my blood pressure going back to normal and look forward to Sleepy Joe and Heels Up getting their comeuppance!

    But I do still worry about the "A" remedy Don referred to. I put nothing past these scum.

    1. Same here Fred. Feeling much better today.

    2. If you're on Twatter, another way to cheer up is to follow Carlos Osweda's posts (I use Threadreader, since Jack the Homeless Maggot banned me,) but be aware he doesn't suffer fools or defeatists.

      He knows full well that VSGPDJT has planned for this exact scenario, and that the Dems have stepped into the trap he set. President Trump does plan ahead, you know, and though the lying media keeps calling him an idiot, it's amazing how often that idiot gets the outcome he wants, isn't it?

      Soon, it'll be popcorn time, as we watch the fireworks & applaud President Trump's re-election!

  12. This is a very interesting... and GOOD... article for this morning:

    1. Interesting. I'm going to believe it when I see it (how much of it is to buck up the troops?), but, if all is true, Trump again gets to have the last laugh as he again exposes the Demos as not only wannabe tyrants, but as an organized crime syndicate, as well.

  13. Wondering if the claim about some precincts getting more ballots cast that requests is real? I keep thinking that we all knew this would happen and they even told us in many ways, but we just weren't able to respond. Unlike 2016, where they weren't prepared to cheat since they figured it was in the bag, they certainly had things well planned out including the states that needed to stop counting - I guess to figure out how many fake ballots they needed. I'm really hoping we can find a way to torch these maggots, but they certainly will do anything to win and it's going to tough to prove since I'm sure they've done bs like separate the ballot from the signature (that doesn't match) envelope as just one way to hide their chicanery.

  14. I can't believe what all I'm seeing this morning. Windows taped to prevent seeing in, and large containers videotaped being wheeled into MI vote sites AFTER the election? More ballots found in WI that ALL are for Biden?
    MI post office told to remove any late ballots and hand stamp them to look like they were mailed on time? We're in the "Twilight Zone" where I don't know what is really happening and what isn't. So much of this seems too wild to believe. And yet... I have a suspicion that the true stories are the most unbelievable ones. We are in a new age now, where things are happening that are like what I heard happened in Communist countries when I was growing up in the 1960's. Can America even be saved anymore or is it already too late? It's up to Trump and his lawyers now. All we can do is pray for their success.

    1. You obviously missed the election of 1960.

      Nixon knew the election had been stolen, but kept quiet for what he thought was the good of the country.

      If he'd fought, as Trump is doing, no Vietnam War, no decades of military adventurism, no New Left, no rights for hardened criminals.

    2. Unfortunately I was 6 years old at 1960. I do, however, remember the assassination, and I also remember every detail of Oswald's killing.

    3. Ed, it's before my time, but I'll second your thoughts that the "noble" 1960 refusal of RMN to contest the obvious fraud in Chicago that decided Illinois turned out to be a disaster. While JFK would today be run out of the D party as a far-right guy (!), his campaign was the first to make extensive use of television - and thus changed campaigns to involve more image-making and celebrity-style rather than substance; since it worked, we got more and more of that. And indeed, you probably don't get the awful things that started to happen in succeeding years.

      Let me give you another one where not challenging obvious fraud led to disaster - the journey of one Bernard Sanders (I - Lunar Orbit) from homeless vagrant to multimillionaire celebrity politician.

      Back in the 1970s, he was just another one of the collection of goofballs who regularly appeared on ballots around the state - the offices they were running for would change, but the same names would be shuffled around and they'd get their 1 percent or so.

      His start was winning the Burlington mayoral race in 1980 or 1981 (forget which) - by 25 votes. That should have been thrown out on two grounds. First, he got a lot of the local university students registered to vote - a great number of whom were demonstrably already registered to vote back in their original hometowns, so way more than 25 illegal votes were cast. And second, his candidacy was illegal, since he had no fixed address as election law required; he was living (illegally, but tolerated) as a vagrant under what was at the time the new University of Vermont library.

      The city's (Democrat!) establishment decided not to bother - since they thought they'd get two years of comic relief and then he'd be tossed. Instead, he drew in enough perma-flakes to make it stick. And the rest is history of a sort.

    4. One other thing about 1960. JFK ran as an anticommunist hawk, complaining about a missile gap, with Russia being the first to launch satellites while our own space program encountered bumps in the road. His message stimulated lot of voters.

  15. This comment has been removed by the author.

  16. THIS is the moment for which Donald J. Trump, may he live and be well, was born and elected President. The obviousness of the fraud, the disappointment of the Ds, and the bias of the MSM are so great that we will see the implosion of the Democrat Party.

  17. This comment has been removed by the author.

  18. We need to be honest, that half our country supports the eviction of the bad orange man if not the election of Biden. That is a very real problem that the Republican party needs to figure out how to address. Setting aside the informed committed Marxists, fully half of our electorate has been successfully propagandized by the MSM and social media. Goebbels' famous quote is even more applicable today than it was nearly 80 years ago.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    Today, the Lie is the "Story." Whether the bad racist in the White House, our impending doom through Covid, or extinction through climate change, half of our fellow travelers are swallowing this without the least skepticism because alternative opinion and facts are censored in the name of the latest Big Lie.

    We desperately need some original thought on how to shatter this monopoly on information.

    1. Very good. Sensible and original.

    2. Well said Tigre.

      - Don in Oregon

    3. It's hardly original, so torch bearing mobs are out?

    4. Well said indeed, Tigre.

      I returned to this country after some 30+ years overseas, back in 2003. It shocked me to find that TV 'news' here was fixated on the trivial, that many stories were flat out lies, and that 'the Narrative' was all they cared about.

      Since I'd been to many countries that had strict gun-control, but still seemed to be a lot more dangerous than the USA, any reports of people defending themselves was of great interest to me; there didn't seem to be many such stories in the 'news' though.

      I vividly recall seeing one such report on TV, and spoke about it to my cousin. I couldn't remember which channel or station I'd seen it on though, since American TV had so many channels. My cousin immediately said, "That was on Fox News."

      "How do you know that, it could've been any channel, after all it was a news story!" I responded. He said, "Fox is the only outlet that would've put it on. All the others have an agenda, and only follow their narrative. People defending themselves with guns aren't part of their agenda, they're all for strict gun control."

      Now, of course, even Fox has fallen to the Left, and is spouting the same Narrative as all the others.

      There is no honest main-stream media in this country anymore. That's why I only watch OANN or RSBN, but I do make an exception for Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs, & Maria Bartrimono.

      Our MEDIA is the biggest problem we face, it's full-on PROPAGANDA!

  19. Masthead: Damned straight.

    1: I do believe she's still fighting for General Flynn, but your sentiment is well taken.

    6: Not unlike Intel's 2 + 2 = 5. For very large values of 2.

    7: How much of that white support for Gropin' Joe was fraudulent?

  20. I'm afraid the really big picture is being lost in all of this. Over 50% of the voters (granted the big population centers account for most of this)voted for a hard core leftist and his Communist leaning VP candidate. In other words, Anti-American value idiots are making their grab at running the asylum..That's what we need to be afraid of not matter what the outcome

  21. 2. I think it was noted "scientist" ted danson who claimed we only had 10 years in 1988. Don't know if he was the first.

    13. Was that ex-governor wendy davis?

  22. I want a duel between Trump and Biden.

  23. "White support down." - That's the CNN/MSNBC viewers, who have been brainwashed into blaming Trump for the Wuhan Flu.

  24. However, it is become better for people to get the best news on alternative news sites. This is because they are not biased. They are not affiliated with any political party and they can choose their own news and which articles they post. Pakistan Networks
