Senate Committee Successfully Verifies All Bobulinski Materials Reviewed To Date

Tony Bobulinski,
by Henry Rodgers: The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has been successful in verifying all materials reviewed so far from Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski, the Daily Caller has learned.

Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson will not call Bobulinski to testify before the November 3 elections, as the committee is working to review all the information provided to the committee by Bobulinski. The information has to be verified, as it is subject to the same false information to Congress laws that verbal or written testimony does. However, a Johnson spokesperson told the Caller that all the material provided by Bobulinski that has been reviewed so far has turned out to be legitimate. The committee has “also” not come across any “signs” or evidence to suggest the content is false, the spokesperson added.

Bobulinski, who said Tuesday he believes “Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised” in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, has turned over evidence to the FBI alleging he met twice in the past with the former vice president in regards to business with his son Hunter. The Biden family has not yet disputed this information.

Johnson interviewed Bobulinski on Friday, saying after he hopes Bobulinski will speak to the Senate Homeland Security Committee as soon as possible, something Bobulinski said he would be willing to do in his Tuesday interview with Carlson.

Johnson had the chance to interview Bobulinski on Friday and released a statement shortly after saying: “I appreciate that the FBI has a job to do, and I am glad they are finally taking an interest in these concerning financial matters that our Committees have been investigating for months,” Sen. Johnson said. “I expect that Mr. Bobulinski will speak with our committee as soon as possible and fully share his insights into the Biden family’s business dealings.”

Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff suggested that Russia was behind the series of emails reportedly tying Hunter Biden to several international business dealings, something Bobulinski said Tuesday is a smear on him and his family name.

All information provided to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee by Bobulinski will continue to be reviewed.

Big Tech: ’The Single Greatest Threat To Free Speech in America’

by Tony Perkins: If you thought Google's cryfest after Donald Trump's election was extreme, wait a few months. Sundar Pichai's company could be on the verge of real anguish -- and not because of who wins. If you thought bipartisanship in Washington was dead, Wednesday's Senate hearing should have made it clear: there's one thing the two sides agree on, and that's reining in Big Tech. They may have different motives, but Republicans and Democrats have news for America's social media moguls -- the squirming has just begun. Unfortunately for conservatives, it will be too late. The damage in this election cycle has already been done.

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Google's Sundar Pichai, and Twitter's Jack Dorsey have taken turns on the congressional hot seat before. But fresh off of their latest election interference, GOP senators were done playing nice. One after another they lit into the trio for trying to silence the breaking news about Hunter Biden's corrupt business deals. "Both Twitter and Facebook took steps to block or limit access to the story," committee chairman Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) argued. "Facebook, according to its Policy Communications Manager, began 'reducing its distribution on [the] platform' pending a third-party fact check. Twitter went beyond that, blocking all users -- including the House Judiciary Committee -- from sharing the article on feeds and through direct messages. Twitter even locked the New York Post's account entirely, claiming the story included 'hacked materials' and was 'potentially harmful.'"

How is it, several Republicans demanded, that Twitter can blackout information it believes is suspect about the Bidens, but leaves every lie and conspiracy theory about President Trump untouched? It's a double standard, Wicker said angrily. Big Tech doesn't mind the wide distribution of a suspect New York Times story about the amount of taxes the president has paid, but it is literally tripping over itself to suppress negative news about Hunter Biden. This wasn't, as Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) fired back, "just some random guy tweeting [about Hunter]. The New York Post has the fourth-highest circulation of any newspaper in America. [It's] 200 years old... and your position is that you can sit in Silicon Valley and [tell] them what stories they can publish?" And the same goes for the American people, Cruz went on, "you can tell them what reporting they can hear, is that right?"

Neither Jack Dorsey (or his beard) had a good answer for that. In fact, he looked physically uncomfortable when Republicans brought up Twitter's Global Leaders Policy, which is how they justify blacking out Donald Trump's tweets while other world leaders post violent things without objection. Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called for the destruction of Israel, many pointed out -- and somehow that doesn't violate the company's policy? "We did not find those to violate our terms of service," Dorsey replied, "because we consider them saber-rattling, which is part of the speech of world leaders in concert with other countries." The president's tweets, he claimed, are much more dangerous.

That's ridiculous, Senator Rick Scott (R-Fla.) argued. "Your companies are inconsistently applying the rules with an obvious bias. Your companies are censoring free speech. You target the president, the White House press secretary, Senator Mitch McConnell, the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life group, while giving dictators a free, unfettered platform." Together, they're nothing but a "democratic Super PAC," Cruz railed. Then, turning to Dorsey, he asked, "Does Twitter have the ability to influence elections?" "No," Jack answered. If you think that, Cruz fired back, "Why do you block anything?"

Even Democrats like Senators Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Jacky Rosen (Nev.), and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) agreed that it was time to revisit the liability shield that's given these companies immunity. "If nothing else," one commentator wrote, you couldn't walk away from the hearing without noticing the "bipartisan dislike and mistrust of social media platforms and a desire to do something about them."

That'll be a "rude awakening" for these companies, Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) said on radio Wednesday, especially since they've been working so hard to get Democrats elected. "I think they're going to be in the crosshairs of both parties [after the election]... There's going to be major congressional action" to take away a lot of the legal protection they've enjoyed. "That's going to hurt their bottom line," Comer warned. "And I think they'll regret... their bias toward conservatives."

But right now, he pointed out, "the Democrats are honestly in a win-win situation. They have [these platforms] banning any type of news that would harm Joe Biden... But at the same time... in six and a half months, [Democrats] are going to turn their backs on Big Tech [and regulate them] to break up the monopoly." If they do, and Republicans team up with them to hold Silicon Valley accountable, those companies won't look anything like they do now. Twitter, Facebook, Google -- they'll all be ravaged by trial attorneys. And not one conservative will mind. Collectively, Cruz warned, these companies pose "the single greatest threat to free speech in America, and the greatest threat we have to free and fair elections." They must be stopped.

Evidence of Joe Biden Corruption Just Keeps Piling Up, and the Media Refuses to Cover It

by Tyler O'Neil: On Wednesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson condemned the legacy media for attempting to bury the bombshell story of Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden’s former business partner who has testified that Democratic nominee Joe Biden was involved in his family’s influence-peddling operations in China, Ukraine, and elsewhere. More and more sources have confirmed parts of Bobulinski’s story — most recently a Senate committee — but many media outlets have refused to cover it.

“Bobulinski told a remarkable story. Joe Biden — who once again could be [elected] president of the United States next week — was planning business deals with America’s most formidable global opponent. And when he was caught doing it, Joe Biden lied. And then he went further, the slandered an innocent man as a traitor to his own country,” Carlson explained.

He lamented that “no one in America’s vast media landscape has pressed Joe Biden” for his excuse to smear Bobulinski. “Instead, reporters at all levels, and their editors, and their publishers, have openly collaborated with Joe Biden’s political campaign. That is unprecedented. It has never happened in American history.”

“This morning, the big papers completely ignored what Tony Bobulinski had to say, so did the other television networks. Not a single word about Bobulinski appeared on CNN or anywhere else. Newsweek decided to cover it but came to the conclusion that the real story was about Qanon, somehow,” Tucker added.

“This is Soviet-style suppression of information of a legitimate news story days before an election. The ramifications of it are impossible to imagine,” the Fox News host declared. “You should be offended by this not because the media are liberal but because this is an attack on our democracy. You’ve heard that phrase again and again. This is what it actually looks like. In a self-governing country, voters have a right to know, and obligation to know, who they’re voting for.”

“In this case, they have the right to know that the Democratic nominee for president was a willing partner in his family’s lucrative influence-peddling operation. An operation that went on for decades and stretched from China and Ukraine, all the way to Oman, Romania, Luxembourg, and many other countries,” Carlson added. “This is not speculation, once again, and it is not a partisan attack. It’s true and Tony Bobulinski confirmed it.”

Indeed, a spokesperson for Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) told the Daily Caller that all the material Bobulinski provided that the committee had reviewed so far has turned out to be legitimate. The committee did not come across any “signs” or evidence to suggest the content is false.

This confirmation adds to a growing list of evidence suggesting that the bombshells revealed in Hunter Biden’s emails and Bobulinski’s testimony are true. While the Biden campaign, Democrats, and legacy media outlets have insisted that the bombshells are Russian disinformation, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, the FBI, and the DOJ rebutted that claim. Vladimir Putin himself came out in defense of Biden’s business deals.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) claimed his staff had verified the Hunter Biden emails. Team Biden has not claimed that the documents were forged. Perhaps most importantly, Bobulinski has risked his reputation to come forward, presenting reams of evidence to back up his story.

The former Biden business partner spoke with Tucker Carlson on Tuesday, recounting the sordid details of his business with the Bidens.

Evidence showed that Hunter Biden introduced Bobulinksi to Joe Biden in Los Angeles in May 2017 with these words, “Dad, here’s the individual I told you about that’s helping us with the business that we’re working on and the Chinese.”

Bobulinski presented text messages in which Hunter Biden said his “Chairman” — whom Bobulinski claimed was Joe Biden — vetoed a plan for stricter governance on their company doing business with the Chinese.

He also discussed a May 13, 2017 email showing that 10 percent of the company’s equity would go to Joe Biden.

Carlson later revealed that some of the documents detailing the corruption had gone missing, but the Bobulinski interview and the documents the former Biden business partner provided have not been lost.

“Millions of dollars linked to the Communist Party of China went to Joe Biden’s family, not because they’re capable businessmen, they’re certainly not,” Tucker Carlson explained. “They were cut in on the world’s most lucrative business deals… for one reason. Because Joe Biden was a powerful government official willing to leverage his power on behalf of his family.”

“Now, if that’s not a crime, it’s very close to a crime. And it’s certainly something every person voting should know about,” the Fox News host insisted.

Indeed, the scandal is quite damning. Hunter Biden’s business deals in China arguably undercut America’s interests in military technology, nuclear technology, and rare earth minerals. His deals helped the Chinese in their oppression of the Muslim Uyghur minority.

Yet when the story first broke, Facebook and Twitter took unprecedented actions to suppress The New York Post bombshell. Twitter briefly suspended the accounts of the Trump campaign, the White House press secretary, and a congressional committee. Facebook, meanwhile, moved to suppress the Post article’s reach even before an independent fact check could be performed.

Media outlets also rushed to suppress the story. National Public Radio boasted about its decision not to cover the Hunter Biden emails. CBS News’s Leslie Stahl even denied that Biden was facing a scandal at all. CNN’s Jake Tapper described the story as “just nonsense, crap, tied into Qanon, tied into Pizzagate, tied into the worst things you could say about a person — with no evidence, just completely made up.” Journalists started attacking other journalists for daring to post The New York Post story on Twitter.

As more and more of the truth comes out, the corruption becomes ever more damning not just for Joe Biden’s campaign but for the legacy media who rushed to cover it up.

The Bidens conspired to structure their family's foreign business ventures in a way that provides Joe Biden with "plausible deniability."

But Joe Biden's son Hunter texted Tony Bobulinski to say that his father was making key decisions about their business deals with China. pic.twitter.com/Bj7FRtZ9aW

The Assault on Religious Freedom During COVID-19

Star Parker
by Star Parker: During the course of the COVID-19 crisis, an ongoing, and very legitimate, national debate has continued about the wisdom of lockdowns.

The decision to shut down social and commercial activity in the name of health is itself arbitrary. Then, the decision to decide what to shut down and what not to shut down, what activities are more essential than others, adds more arbitrariness.

These decisions reflect the values and priorities of those with power who are making them. In our increasingly secular society, this is posing enormous problems and challenges for religious freedom.

Earlier this year, Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley in Nevada failed in its attempt to get the Supreme Court to rein in Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak’s order that arbitrarily clamps down more severely on churches than on gambling casinos.

Nevada’s policy holds that restaurants, bars, casinos and gyms can operate at 50% capacity, while houses of worship are limited to a maximum of 50 people regardless of their capacity.

In a 5-4 vote, the court refused injunctive relief for Calvary Chapel.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh got to the heart of the matter in his dissent.

“Nevada’s rules,” wrote Kavanaugh, “reflect an implicit judgement that for-profit assemblies are important and religious gatherings are less so; that moneymaking is more important than faith during the pandemic.”

But rather than the fight being over, it is continuing and picking up steam.

A few weeks ago, a federal district court judge ruled in favor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in its complaint against Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser’s executive order prohibiting religious gatherings of over 100 people, indoors or outdoors.

The church, in its complaint and request for relief, noted that the mayor herself appeared and spoke at an outdoor gathering of “tens of thousands of people” in downtown Washington.

A federal district court judge in Colorado has just ruled in favor of two local churches who filed a suit challenging the state’s rules requiring masks and limiting the size of indoor gatherings. The judge found that the rules for religious institutions were more severe than for secular ones and, therefore, unconstitutional.

However, a lawsuit filed by Orthodox Jews and Catholics in New York against Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions on indoor gatherings was met with less success, as a federal district court judge ruled in favor of the state.

Lockdowns present a formidable test and challenge to the country. Our Constitution, with its Bill of Rights, was formulated with the idea that a legal fence could be built to protect individual freedom from arbitrary violations.

One of America’s Founding Fathers, John Adams, used the phrase “a government of laws, not of men” to capture the idea that we should aspire to limit arbitrary power given to men.

But government-mandated lockdown is all about giving politicians enormous arbitrary power.

America was founded by those seeking religious freedom. Recall the famous sermon in 1630 by Puritan John Winthrop, founder of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, one of the nation’s first colonies.

“For we must consider,” said Winthrop, “that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and by-word through the world.”

But the religion, and the freedom to practice it, that was most important to John Winthrop and many of the founders of this country is least important to many people with political power making lockdown decisions today.

According to a 2015 Pew Research Center report, 36% of Americans attend religious services weekly.

Legal challenges must continue everywhere constitutional protections for religious freedom and equal treatment are being violated.

And know that life and religious freedom are what’s on the ballot in the upcoming election.

USPTO: One Deep State Swamp Backwater That Is Getting Drained

by Seton Motley, Contributing Author: Donald Trump ran for the presidency promising to “Drain the Swamp.”

We the People liked the pledge. So we elected him.

President Trump has acknowledged that the Swamp is much deeper – and its Creatures much nastier – than he anticipated.

Which is an understandable underestimation.

I was born and raised in a proximate Swamp suburb. I long saw the Swamp up close and personal. I watched it grow and grow for decades.

And I too underestimated the depth and nastiness Trump would encounter upon his taking office.

But significant progress is being made.

In many areas inside the fetid, festering Swamp – just undoing two terms of Trump predecessor Barack Obama in less than one term is itself a MAJOR accomplishment.

And so has it been at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Credit goes to Trump – and his choice for Chairman: Andrei Iancu.

Let us briefly examine the incredibly damaged-by-the-Obama-Era system Trump and Iancu inherited.

Most unfortunately, Obama didn’t eviscerate the US patent environment singlehandedly. He had Republican help.

We Are Surrounded by Intellectual Property – Until We Aren’t:

“In this the Digital Age and the Information Economy – Intellectual Property and its protections have only become even more important.…

“So why did we spend the entirety of the Barack Obama Administration undermining it all?

“The Administration spent its eight years issuing all sorts of regulations and rulings – and filing all sorts of lawsuits – all designed to undermine IP.

“Republicans were hardly better. In sickening pursuit of Big Tech political coin, they gleefully drafted and passed the very awful, very-awfully-misnamed America Invents Act.

“Which – like the Affordable Care Act – did the exact opposite of what the name suggests. It strip mined IP protections from anyone inventing anything.

“And of course, the-most-anti-IP-President-ever Obama – gleefully signed it.

“The result? When Obama entered the White House, the US was on the global innovation ranking list – consistently #1 or very close to it.

“By the time we were rid of Obama?

“Intellectual Property Crisis: U.S. Drops Out Of The Top Ten In Innovation Ranking.”

Now, it would be FANTASTIC if our Congress passed a law undoing the very awful, very-awfully-misnamed America Invents Act.

Another Obama-Undoing Great Idea: Plug the Obama-Era Holes In Our Patent Protections

Undoing Obama Policy – Is Excellent Policy

But our Congress these days has a difficult time passing anything.

Although Iancu seems to be an eternal optimist.

Iancu Says Congress May Be Up for Patent Eligibility Reform

Thankfully, Iancu hasn’t been fiddling while Congress and the US patent system burn.

Where he can do things – he has been doing great things.

Why Patent Practitioners Are Warming to Iancu’s PTAB Reforms

“Since it was created in 2012, the (Patent Trial and Appeal Board) PTAB has become a vital – and controversial – part of the patent dispute landscape in the United States. For many of those eight years, the board was seen by many to be, in the words of former CAFC Chief Judge Randall Rader, ‘the patent death squad.’

“Now, though, perceptions are changing. A series of reforms undertaken since Andrei Iancu became USPTO Director, alongside a growing collection of Federal Circuit rulings, mean that the balance between petitioners and patent owners is being recalibrated. Iancu himself has talked of ‘a new day at the PTAB.’”

A “new day at the PTAB” – is outstanding.

The “last day for the PTAB” would be best – but again, that requires Congress. They created this disaster – they have to make it entirely go away.

Iancu lessening the damage PTAB can do – is very good news.

Oh: Obama and the Republican Congress also had judicial help in undermining the US patent system.

Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International:

“(A) 2014 decision of the United States Supreme Court[1] about patent eligibility….(T)he case was widely considered as a decision on software patents or patents on software for business methods….

“(The Court) declared each of Alice’s patents invalid because the claims concerned abstract ideas, which are not eligible for patent protection under U.S.C. § 101….

“The Software Freedom Law Center said the Supreme Court: ‘took one more step towards the abolition of patents on software inventions.’”

That’s not great.

This is….

USPTO Director Iancu Proposes Revised 101 Guidance

“Iancu proposes a new inquiry into whether an exception to patentable subject matter ‘is integrated into a practical application’ – if so, ‘the claim passes 101 and the eligibility analysis would conclude.’”

Iancu’s work to restore our patent system – has borne fruit. By 2012, Obama and Company had driven us out of the top ten on the Global Innovation Index.

We’re now back up to #3. And rising with a bullet.

This tremendous success – has led to this….

Letter to Congress: Iancu is Good for the Patent System

Letter?:

“The undersigned represent a diverse array of American innovators, ranging from universities and non-profit foundations, to individual inventors, to start-ups and small businesses, to manufacturing, technology, and life sciences companies.

“Together we represent thousands of organizations that employ millions of workers in the United States. We all believe that the future of the U.S. economy, including domestic job growth and our competitive advantage in the global economy, depends on a strong patent system that incentivizes innovators to invent and protects their inventions from unfair theft by others.

“We write to express our support for the important improvements the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has implemented over the past several years under the leadership of Director Andrei Iancu.

“In this short period, Director Iancu has clearly changed the dialogue surrounding patents, defined the patent system by the brilliance of inventors, the excitement of invention, and the incredible benefits they bring to our economy and society as a whole.

“He continuously demonstrates commitment for restoring balance and confidence in the U.S. patent system.”

Continue Iancu Reforms Should Trump Lose, Patent Owners Urge

Well, we should also reelect the guy who hired him.

Record Growth, Connect The Dots, No Merit Badge For Barrett

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer: Record Growth
Once again, the Trump economy has confounded the experts. Third quarter GDP growth came in at a record 33.1% annualized rate, beating estimates of 32%. It was also greater than the 31.4% decline we suffered during the second quarter lockdown.

And there's more good news: Weekly jobless claims fell to their lowest level since March 14th, again beating expectations.

In addition, CNBC reports that so far in third quarter earnings season, "85% of companies have beat expectations by an astounding 19% on average."

God forbid if Donald Trump and Mike Pence lose this election. By Inauguration Day vaccines that they developed will be available to help reopen our economy. But in the meantime, the American people will have put into office radical progressives who do not know how to grow an economy.

Connect The Dots
It's worth reflecting on the handiwork of the radical secular left and, ironically, their Islamist allies over the last few days.

In France, a school teacher was beheaded by a teenage refugee because he showed his class a cartoon that depicted Muhammad. French police are investigating dozens of Islamist sympathizers.

This morning in Nice, France, three Frenchmen were killed, one beheaded, at the Basilica of Notre Dame by a follower of the "religion of peace" who was yelling, "Allahu Akbar!"

Here in the U.S., left-wing radicals and nihilists sacked large portions of Philadelphia. On Tuesday night, they burned to the ground a Vietnamese Baptist Church, just like they attempted to burn down St. John's Church in Washington, D.C. No mainstream news outlet has reported on the church burning.

There's also video of American Jews who tried to join the BLM marchers in Philadelphia, and barely escaped with their lives. Young followers of the anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, said the Jewish men were members of the "synagogue of Satan."

Some critics might question the connection of jihadists in France to church burners and anti-Semites in America as being in any way reflective of the political left. But the political left does have a growing problem with anti-Semitism. (Here and here.)

And how about the leftist billionaire owner of Twitter?

Jack Dorsey had no real answer yesterday when he was asked why his company blocked a Trump tweet warning that mail-in voting could lead to fraud, but refuses to block tweets from the mullahs of Iran questioning the Holocaust and suggesting that the only path to peace in the Middle East is wiping Israel off the map.

Every day, the American left -- from Silicon Valley billionaires to leftists stormtroopers in the streets of Europe and the United States -- serves up bigger portions of hell. We all must remember this when we go to vote on Tuesday and see long lines.

Don't let that discourage you. Judeo-Christian civilization is under siege.

Policies, Not Personality
I'm not a big golf fan, but I know who Jack Nicklaus is, and I know what he has accomplished throughout his tremendous career, on and off the course.

He recently voted for President Trump, and posted a great explanation that may help you or some of your friends and family members as they ponder their vote in the days ahead. Here's an excerpt of Nicklaus's statement:

"You might not like the way our President says or tweets some things -- and trust me, I have told him that! -- but I have learned to look past that and focus on what he's tried to accomplish.

"This is not a personality contest; it's about patriotism, policies and the people they impact. His love for America and its citizens, and putting his country first, has come through loud and clear. How he has said it has not been important to me. What has been important are his actions. Now, you have the opportunity to take action.

"I know we are only a few days from Nov. 3 and Election Day, but I am certain many of you have not yet made up your minds. But if we want to continue to have the opportunity to pursue the American Dream, and not evolve into a socialist America and have the government run your life, then I strongly recommend you consider Donald J. Trump for another 4 years."


Speaking of endorsements, President Trump also received the endorsement of Maurice Davis, vice president of the Flint, Michigan, city council. Davis, who is black, is a life-long Democrat. He voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, but is now voting for Trump because the president is a problem solver with a proven record of results.

No Merit Badge For Barrett
The left is still seething over Justice Amy Coney Barrett. Already there are calls for her impeachment. But to give you some idea of just how unhinged the left has become, just consider what has happened to the Girl Scouts.

Yesterday, the Girl Scouts posted this tweet, "Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789."

That was a nice recognition of Barrett's accomplishment and the fact that she is a role model to young girls and women. Sadly, it was quickly taken down and replaced with this pitiful explanation:

"Earlier today, we shared a post highlighting the five women who have been appointed to the Supreme Court. It was quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement which was not our intent and we have removed the post.

"Girl Scouts of the USA is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization. We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women."


Evidently, Amy Coney Barrett's accomplishment as the 5th female Supreme Court justice is not worth celebrating.

Sorry, Girl Scouts, but your pathetic surrender to the rabid left shows just how "yellow" you are. You're clearly not here to lift up conservative girls and women at all, just liberal girls and women.

And here's the proof: A Girl Scout tweet from March 2019 praising Sandra Day O'Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor is still up.

Apparently, praising those four liberals as "inspiring role models" is not partisan at all. It seems that what the Girl Scouts find so "inspiring" is that they all supported abortion.

Something To Ponder
The media spent more time investigating Brett Kavanaugh's yearbook than investigating what's on Hunter Biden's laptop. Just saying.

Polling As Propaganda
Famed pollster and focus group guru Frank Luntz recently said that his industry is "finished" if Trump wins reelection. All the big media polls are predicting a Biden landslide. We'll learn Luntz's fate soon enough.

But more and more pollsters are speaking out against what they call "garbage polls" and "polling as voter suppression," or as I like to call it, polling propaganda. It seems far too many media polls aren't meant to measure voter opinion, but to influence it. And always in one direction.

For a different perspective on polling the 2020 political landscape, check out these articles. (Here, here, here and here.)

Obviously, someone has to be wrong in this debate. And it's up to you to prove the liberal media wrong.

VOTE!
And make sure every like-minded person you know votes too!

Election A Choice Between Rule-Changing And Respect For Constitutional Norms

The 2020 election is not just about Joe Biden sitting on a perceived lead and trying to run out the clock against barnstorming incumbent President Trump.
Victor Davis Hanson 

by Victor Davis Hanson: In traditional presidential campaigns, the two major parties offer contrasting ideas and policies. The Democratic and Republican candidates barnstorm the nation to make their cases.

Not this year.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden is more or less a virtual candidate, mostly communicating from home via Zoom. He offers few detailed alternatives to the first four years of the Trump administration.

Instead, Biden is running on the idea that Donald Trump caused the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic recession, and that he’s responsible for violence in the streets.

But Biden rarely offers contrasting visions of what he would have done differently than the Trump administration — or, for that matter, major European countries that are now in worse economic shape and fighting another coronavirus spike.

Even in the final days of the race, Biden is making far fewer campaign appearances than Trump. The challenger is outsourcing to the media his defense against allegations that the Biden family has peddled influence to foreign interests for millions of dollars that were routed into family coffers.

An inert Biden is playing the role of good ol’ Joe from Scranton, while his supporters hope not to just to change presidency, but to alter the very rules of how America has been governed for decades and even centuries.

Not long ago, the left favored the Electoral College. California, New York and Illinois gave Democrats more than 100 automatic Electoral College votes.

The left bragged that their “blue wall” lock on solidly Democratic, union-heavy Midwestern states had ensured Barack Obama two presidential terms — and in 2016 would guarantee Hillary Clinton the presidency as well.

But in 2016, the blue wall crumbled — perhaps permanently.

Now, furious progressives plan to end the constitutionally mandated Electoral College by hook or crook. They feel it is no longer serves their election purposes.

Ditto the traditional structure of the Supreme Court. For nearly 60 years, a left-leaning Supreme Court revolutionized American cultural and political life with progressive decisions. The majority on the court advanced liberal agendas that often found little support in referenda, state legislatures and Congress.

Even Republican-appointed judges often flipped from conservative to liberal in the progressive culture of Washington. Once strict constructionist justices such as Harry Blackmun, William Brennan, Lewis F. Powell Jr., David Souter, John Paul Stevens, Potter Stewart and Earl Warren all became activists, delighting the left. Almost no Democratic-appointed justices turned traditional and conservative.

The Supreme Court includes two of Barack Obama’s liberal nominees, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. The left assumed that after 2016, Hillary Clinton as president would appoint three or four more activist justices over her almost guaranteed eight-year tenure.

But then the unthinkable happened with the stunning 2016 election of Donald Trump.

Trump now has appointed three traditionalist (and relatively young) justices to lifetime spots on the Supreme Court. Ironically, he was empowered to so after Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid changed the Senate rules in 2013, reducing the threshold for approval of executive and judicial nominees from 60 votes to 51 votes.

Reid wrongly took for granted that Democrats would control the Senate for the next decade as part of an Obama-Clinton 16-year continuum. Reid wished to ensure that the Republican Senate minority would have no ability to obstruct the appointment of progressive nominees until at least 2024.

Instead, Reid ensured that Trump and a Republican-controlled Senate could appoint conservative judges at will under the new rules.

If elected president, Joe Biden would likely “pack” the Supreme Court with additional slots. That enlargement would ensure new activist left-wing justices.

In other words, the 151-year tradition of a Supreme Court with nine justices would end.

The left also wants to pack the Senate — and change the rules. Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., would become new states. Their admission would end the tradition of 50-state America and would likely mean another four Democratic senators.

A Biden presidency and Democratic-controlled Senate would also quickly kill off what is left of the filibuster. Democrats wish to ensure that a surviving Republican minority could not impede progressive agendas in the same manner that the Democratic minority has stopped Republican legislation in recent years.

In sum, the 2020 election is not just about Joe Biden sitting on a perceived lead and trying to run out the clock against barnstorming incumbent President Trump.

It is really a choice between changing rules when they are deemed inconvenient and respecting constitutional norms and long-held traditions that have served America well for many years.

Every Vote Matters

by Newt Gingrich: The most consequential election in our lifetime is less than a week away.

By now, I expect many of you who are reading this have made up your minds about who you want to be President of the United States in 2021 and to serve you in the US House and US Senate. However, I suspect some of you still need to be convinced of something: To go and cast your ballots.

It is a cruel twist of fate that the most important election we have seen in modern American history is happening during the worst pandemic we have seen in modern American history. The COVID-19 virus has challenged every aspect of our lives – social, private, business, and civic.

Nevertheless, it is vitally important that you vote – and that you encourage and help your friends and family to vote.

It is especially important for you if you want to see President Donald Trump in a second term. If all of President Trump’s supporters turn out – and all their friends and family members turn out – he will win in a landslide so large that no amount of ballot fudging will be able to overcome it. It could also help mitigate post-election resistance by Democrats in Congress (notice: I said mitigate, not eliminate). Democrats spent most of Trump’s first term trying to get him out of office – much to the country’s detriment. If he is re-elected by a large enough margin, enough of the Democrats may realize they should stop #resisting and start governing again.

So, it is important that you all vote – no matter where you live. It doesn’t matter if you think your district or state is a safe for President Trump and Republicans. And it doesn’t matter if you think your district or state has no chance of electing them. Every vote matters – and none can be taken for granted.

If you consider your community Trump Country, and you couldn’t imagine it going for Biden – or other Democratic candidates – think again. 2018 saw a slew of Democratic upset victories in places that have been traditionally safe for conservatives. This is what turned Joe Cunningham into the first Democrat to represent South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District since Rep. Mendel Jackson Davis retired in 1981. In Utah, two-term Republican Rep. Mia Love lost her supposedly safe seat to Democrat Rep. Ben McAdams by less than 700 votes.

If you think you live in an area that is hopelessly blue and your vote doesn’t matter, consider the Republican takeover of Congress in 2010, in which we picked up 63 seats. Massachusetts had not elected a Republican Senator since 1972. No one in the political class believed a Republican could win a statewide federal election here. But in 2010, Republican Sen. Scott Brown beat out a Democrat to finish the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s term by 108,000 votes (52 percent of the total). The same year, Joe Walsh – who had been living out of his car late in the campaign – ousted Democratic Rep. Melissa Bean by fewer than 300 votes in the Chicago suburbs.

No matter where you live, you cannot believe polls. Nearly all the major national polls were dead wrong in 2016, and nothing substantial has changed in the way that these same Washington beltway pollsters are surveying Americans today. They continue to over sample Democrats, under sample Republicans, and focus on largely liberal urban and suburban areas while ignoring the middle of the country.

A Well-Deserved Grilling

by Mike Huckabee: Wednesday, the Senate grilled the CEOs of Facebook, Twitter and Google about their deplatforming, banning and blocking of conservative voices and any news that might harm Joe Biden’s political fortunes (at least the Senate Republicans grilled them. The Democrats seemed fine with it, having adopted the belief that the fascistic crushing of free speech by big tech is just dandy as long the monster eats them last.)

We’ve seen this show before: the denials, the weasel words, and the feeble excuses, parsing of language and faux protestations of wide-eyed innocence (Mark Zuckerberg claimed to be unaware that Facebook’s “election integrity” official is a former Biden policy adviser), all to make us believe that these Silicon Valley billionaires are stunned at the very suggestion that their companies might harbor bias that affects their content.

Naturally, the leftist media tried to spin the hearings against the pro-free speech Republicans, with Axios.com claiming that they were just trying to “influence them against cracking down on misinformation from Trump and other conservatives.” First of all, if they are a neutral platform, as required by law if they don’t want to lose their protection from lawsuits, then they have no business deciding that any particular viewpoint represents “misinformation.” If they were honest and even-handed and only banned real misinformation, CNN would be missing from Google searches instead of many conservative media sites.

Second, how many undercover videos have we now seen, and how many whistleblowers have come forth, that all reveal how far left these companies’ corporate cultures are, and how among themselves, they proudly boast of silencing conservatives while turning a blind eye to far worse infractions by the left? How many conservative posts have they banned for “inciting violence” that plainly weren’t, while allowing open threats by liberals against the President or his supporters to stand untouched? In short, who are you gonna believe, these microchip Mussolinis or your lying eyes?

In one case, it became patently obvious how phony their excuses were. When pressed about Twitter’s censorship of the New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey claimed they were no longer being censored, and that “anyone can tweet these articles.” Sen. Ted Cruz responded, “What he told the Senate, under oath, is false. I just tried to tweet the [New York Post] story alleging Biden’s CCP corruption. Still blocked. 18 USC 1621 makes it a felony to lie under oath to the Senate.”

In addition to the outright lies and phony excuses, we also got an encore of their previous Congressional appearances that featured disingenuous pleas for us all to work together and find solutions for the problems they’re personally causing. Dorsey later tweeted, “Some of you don’t trust we’re acting in good faith. That’s the problem I want to focus on solving. How do services like Twitter earn your trust? How do we ensure more choice in the market if we don’t?”

GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy replied, “Here's a first step that Twitter can take to change that: STOP TARGETING CONSERVATIVES.” Others noted that if you claim to be baffled why people don’t think you’re acting in good faith when you ban the President’s tweets as hate speech and propaganda but allow Iran to tweet “Death to America,” then your claims of acting in good faith are not being spoken in good faith.

Stephen Kruiser has more about this at PJ Media, along with a prediction that nothing will change because they’re hoping to run out the clock, help Biden get elected and the Democrats take over the Senate, and then the “the very behavior that prompted yesterday’s hearing will be rewarded by the Dems.” So if you needed a 10,312th reason to get up and go vote Republican, there you go.

50 Things a Biden Presidency Would Mean for America

Worse than the zombie apocalypse?
by Don Feder: Below are The Top 50 Reasons Why a Biden Presidency Would Be Worse Than The Zombie Apocalypse:

1. Another lockdown – Which will Kevorkian what’s left of the economy.

2. Amnesties and other incentives for illegal immigration – Joe promised another amnesty bill in his first 100 days to satisfy the urgent need for more Democrat voters. No border wall, ICE defunded, sanctuary cities subsidized.

3. Back to the era of bad trade deals – Give away the store to get it done. Joe understands trade, based on his vast business experience.

4. Biden Care – “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” – not. Six-month delays for routine tests. Why should Canadians have all the fun?

5. Black Lives Matter -- in charge of combating white privilege and institutional racism with quotas, reparations and looting.

6.Biden’s Cabinet -- Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, Secretary of State Illhan Omar, Secretary of Commerce Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Secretary of the Treasury Bernie Sanders.

7. Celebrity gloating – Hollywood would spend the next 12 months crowing about its victory over flyover country. Amy Schumer will gain another 50 lbs. celebrating with cake and ice cream.

8. Chinese asset in the White House – Biden consistently opposed tariffs on China. Son Hunter was in business with a Chinese oil company. The Big Guy spent his career outsourcing our jobs to the People’s Republic.

9. The Clintons and Obamas back in power – Someone has to deal with us deplorables and bitter-clingers.

10. Crazy Kamala – Rated the most far-left member of the Senate, and Kavanaugh’s grand inquisitor, as president-in-waiting.

11. D.C. and Puerto Rico Statehood – Senate-packing, giving Democrats a permanent majority. What’s next – Guam, American Samoa, and Portland, Oregon?

12. Enemies List – FOX News, The New York Post, Rudy Giuliani, Bill Barr, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Diamond and Silk, Herschel Walker, Kristie Alley, Hunter’s former business partners, etc.

13. Energy prices will soar – No fracking, drilling on public lands, or tax-breaks for energy development. Get ready for $20-a-gallon gas. Russia’s oil industry will thrive.

14. Facemask Nation – Biden says he wants them mandated nationally for the duration, as determined by Surgeon General Fauci.

15. For sale sign prominently displayed outside the White House -- Just be sure 10% is set aside for the Big Guy.

16. Green New Deal – Repeal the Industrial Revolution, millions of jobs and trillions of dollars sacrificed for a myth.

17. George Soros -- Awarded the Presidential Freedom Medal.

18. Gretchen Whitmer -- The Michigan dominatrix as COVID Czar.

19. Gun Confiscation – Beto O’Rourke running the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

20. Homeless encampments everywhere – The Biden condominium: a shipping crate.

21. Hunter Biden – First Perv and national security risk extraordinaire will help to shape drug policy.

22. Indigenous Peoples Day Replaces Columbus Day – No more celebrating the white “occupation” of America. Presidents Day, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day also on the chopping block.

23. Industry flees overseas – Taxes and regulations will make it impossible to operate here.

24. Infanticide – Several Democrat Governors are on record supporting it. Biden opposes a born-alive bill.

25. IRS -- Unleashed against conservative organizations as it was during the Clinton and Obama years.

26. Islamophobia combated– Classes promoting tolerance (by getting school children to celebrate Muslim holidays) taught in schools. No Christmas trees, but prayer rugs aplenty. Get ready for “A Charlie Brown Ramadan.”

27. Little Sisters of the Poor -- Sent to Devil’s Island.

28. Mainstream media – Will be transformed from an attack machine into an Orwellian Ministry of Truth.

29. Middle class taxes go up – by $6,500 for the median family. But that’s just the start. Tax hikes on “corporations and the rich” are sucker’s bait to snare middle-class voters.

30. Military put on a starvation diet – Democrats believe we have no foreign enemies. Much of the military budget will be transferred to social spending.

31. National Debt will soar. The Bureau of Printing and Engraving will work around the clock.

32. National Rifle Association – Will be designated a domestic terrorist group.

33. Permanent recession – Between taxes and regulations, lack of investment and business failures, we’ll never recover from COVID, which is what the left wants. Socialist regimes don’t grow out of prosperity.

34. Politically correct language will be mandatory – Riots are peaceful protests. Illegal aliens are undocumented workers and socialists are progressives.

35. Repeal of the First Amendment – Snowflakes need protection from hurtful speech.

36. Return of the Deep State – Adam Schiff as FBI Director.

37. Re-writing history – The 1619 project. Priscilla Alden brought slavery to the New World. Every president on Mount Rushmore was a racist. The Plains Indians were all pacifists and environmentalists who did nothing to provoke the genocidal U.S. Cavalry.

38. Sexual harassment inquisitions – A la the Kavanaugh hearings. “Believe women,” except those who say Joe molested them or Hunter was in bed with them when they were underage.

39. Supreme Court Packing – An expanded, activist Court becomes a rubber stamp for a pinata view of the Constitution.

40. Simplified 1040 form -- What did you earn? What’s the least you can to live on? Send us the rest.

41. Social media censorship -- Of conservative views will continue unchecked. With Silicon Valley a bastion of Biden support, Big Tech will have a free hand to crush free speech.

42. 25th Amendment – After a decent interval, Biden will be removed for mental incapacity and Kamala installed. On the campaign trail, Harris’s husband said he was “married to the next president of the United States.”

43. Top 1% brutalized -- Unless they made their money through a Biden business venture, they’ll be punished for being productive.

44. Unisex bathrooms – To accommodate the gender-confused at the price of the safety and modesty of women and girls.

45. Urban centers turned into ghost towns – Businesses over-taxed, open to the depredations of rioters and looters, the homeless treating sidewalks as latrines, stores will close forever or relocate to South Dakota.

46. Venezuela – Will send its bureaucrats here for training.

47. Voting Age lowered to 12 – Ignorance is an investment in the future of the Democrat Party.

48. War on the police will escalate – Biden will put social workers in patrol cars. In life-threatening situations, cops will be taught to shoot armed suspects in the leg or just point an imaginary gun and go “bang-bang.”

49. White House schedule -- Will conclude at 9:15 am each day to allow for plenty of presidential naptime.

50. Zombies avoid D.C. – After 4 years of Biden, they won’t find any brains to eat there. By 2024, we’ll be getting foreign aid from Mozambique, millions will apply to Costa Rica for refugee status, weeds will grow up through the sidewalks of our cities and patriots will be holding wakes for America.

It's Still the Economy, Stupid

Donald Trump's V-shaped recovery continues, and the numbers are better than expected.
by Douglas Andrews: In 1992, former Bill Clinton strategist James Carville famously said, “It’s the economy, stupid.” It’s true: People vote their pocketbooks. And this election year, as weird as it’s been, still bows to those fundamentals. If folks have food on their table and money in their wallet, they’re going to look favorably upon the person or party in power.

That person would be Donald Trump, that party would be the Republicans, and both of them were buoyed this week by some favorable eleventh-hour economic news.

First of all, U.S. GDP exploded in the third quarter, growing at a 33.1% annualized rate. That both exceeded expectations and doubled the previous record of 16.7% in 1950. Obviously, that spike is largely because we’re coming off the worst quarter in U.S. history amidst the COVID shutdowns — shutdowns that were always at least partly meant as a way for Democrat governors to hurt a Republican president. While losing 30% and then gaining 30% still leaves the country behind where we were when 2020 began, an economy that was roaring before the pandemic has showed enduring strength in spite of it all, and that’s incredibly encouraging … so long as we stay the course.

Meanwhile, there’s more good news. “American factories are humming again” writes James Freeman of The Wall Street Journal. “Now if politicians can just avoid returning to the blunt lockdown instrument that imposed such heavy costs last spring and provided such uncertain benefits, the U.S. revival can continue. The good news for today is that last month was much better than economists expected for people who make and build things.”

Clearly, Americans are getting back on their feet, and they’re doing so at a far faster pace than they did when Barack Obama and Joe Biden were at the helm. As researcher Douglas Carr points out, “The two great recessions, similar in many respects, also have differences, so their courses may not be entirely comparable, but they don’t need to be precisely compared. The sluggish first five months of the Obama-Biden recovery led to the slowest recovery in U.S. history. While there remains a long distance to full recovery from the pandemic (and the implications of a second wave remain, for now, unknowable) the Trump administration’s first five months of recovery are the nation’s fastest ever.”

This is all great economic news about the Trump economy and our V-shaped recovery, but it’s not really intended for you. No, this article is intended for your friend.

You know, your friend. The Persuadable One. That one-time Never-Trumper who’s finally coming to grips with the grim-and-grimmer possibilities of a hard-left Biden economy and what it’ll do to that small business of his. That neighbor whose son plays football with yours and who happens to be black but who seems skeptical of all the Leftmedia lies about Trump being a racist. That suburban mom with the three young kids who saw the months-long rioting on TV and is seeing it again now in Philly, but definitely doesn’t want it coming to her neighborhood.

These are the ones who might benefit from this information before casting their vote.

Donald Trump got around three million fewer votes than Hillary Clinton in 2016, but he won the presidency because of some 70,000 votes cast across Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Heck, Hillary won California alone by some four million votes. But the popular vote, to borrow a phrase, is for “suckers” and “losers.” The Electoral College is what the president and his team are focused on. And every vote matters.

So if these friends of yours can’t stand the prospect of voting for Trump, tell them to vote for jobs. For their 401(k). For manufacturing here at home. For a tough-on-China policy. For law and order. For the police. For secure borders. For a faster vaccine. For better therapeutics. For freedom from another lockdown. For a more fair and honest media. For our military. For peace through strength. For freedom of speech. For freedom of religion. For the right to keep and bear arms. For the Bill of Rights. For the Constitution. For the unborn. For their children. For their grandchildren.

Tell them to vote for whatever works. On November 3, remember: It’s Donald Trump or the mob.

A Referendum to Reinstate Racism

by Paul Jacob: Fighting racism should be at least conceptually easy.

The California Assembly referred to Golden State voters Proposition 16, a constitutional amendment that would repeal a previous constitutional amendment voters had authorized in 1996, with Proposition 209.

That amendment “stated that discrimination and preferential treatment were prohibited in public employment, public education, and public contracting on account of a person’s or group’s race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin,” Ballotpedia explains. “Therefore, Proposition 209 banned the use of affirmative action involving race-based or sex-based preferences in California.”

But important and well-monied interests really want to “use affirmative action programs that grant preferences based on race, sex, color, ethnicity, and national origin. . . .”

The list of supporters is a veritable Who’s Who of California Democrat pols and corporations and major lobbying organizations. They’ve spent almost $20 million and counting.

The opposition, organized as wCalifornians for Equal Rights, consists of a smattering of Republican pols and a few non-partisan organizations such as Students for Fair Admissions, and has spent about $1.2 million.

While fighting racism with a prohibition on discrimination in government hiring, and the like, is simple, clear, and across-the-board, fighting racism by preferring individuals of some races over those in others is cumbersome. And nutty.

And wrong.

Usually billed as “compensation” for past ills, it fosters a politics of resentment and inevitably leads to society-wide racial feuding.

Why so popular among “blue” pols?

There’s money in divisiveness, pitting one group off another.

Over 16 times more money, apparently.

Think of Prop 16 as a litmus test. Will “blue” California buy into the politics of racial division?

Or will Golden State voters stick with the color-blind principles most Americans favor?

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

Great Again: Trump Economy Grows Record 33.1% In 3rd Quarter Amid Rapid Recovery

by Robert Romano: The U.S. economy blew the barn doors off all other past recoveries with a record, inflation-adjusted 33.1 percent gain in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) — more than any other quarter in economic history — in the last major economic report before the election in November.

That is great news for the American people, and it certainly bodes well for President Donald Trump in his bid for reelection against former Vice President Joe Biden as the race for 2020 comes down to the wire. It comes as more than 14 million jobs have been recovered since labor markets bottomed in April amid the Covid state-led lockdowns, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Trump has framed the race as a choice between reopening under him or going back into shutdowns under Biden. In the final debate, Trump declared, “We can’t close up our nation, or you’re not going to have a nation.”

The President is right. 25 million jobs were lost at the height of the state-led economic lockdowns, and although we are halfway through a V-shaped recovery, that could all change in a hurry if the economy shuts down again with Biden in office.

A big part of the remainder of the recovery will be reopening the schools, as closing them disproportionately knocked women out of the labor force, making up 53 percent of the job losses despite only making up 47.2 percent of the workforce. The female labor participation rate fell from 57.8 percent in February to 54.7 percent in April, a low not seen since 1986.

In other words, there are long-term consequences for leaving the economy closed for too long.

At the debate, Trump said, “I want to open the schools. We have to open our country. We’re not going to have a country. You can’t do this. We can’t keep this country closed, this is a massive country with a massive economy. People are losing their jobs. They’re committing suicide. There’s depression, alcohol, drugs at a level that nobody’s ever seen before. There’s abuse, tremendous abuse. We have to open our country… I’ve said it before, the cure cannot be worse than the problem itself, and that’s what’s happening, and he wants to close down, he’ll close down the country, if one person in our massive bureaucracy says we should close it down.”

In the first debate first debate, Biden declared, “Schools — why aren’t schools open? Because it costs a lot of money to open them safely.” He also repeated his line that “You need to shut it down” and “you can’t fix the economy until you fix the Covid crisis.” This mirrored what Biden told ABC News in August that “we cannot get the country moving until we control the virus” and “in order to keep the country running and moving, and the economy growing and people employed, you have to fix the virus,” and adding that if it was recommended to him, “I would shut it down, I would listen to the scientists.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony Fauci told Politico in early August that in following the Trump administration’s strategy for virus mitigation that there is no need for another shutdown.

“That would not require shutting down again,” Fauci said, adding, “There seems to be a misperception that either you shut down completely and damage a lot of things, mental health, the economy, all kinds of things, or let it rip and do whatever you want. There’s a stepwise fashion that you can open up the economy successfully. You don’t have to lock down again, but everybody has got to be on board for doing these five or six fundamental public health measures.”

By the time the second debate rolled around, Biden had changed his tune — maybe he read a poll — and instead said, “I’m going to shut down the virus, not the country.”

But the virus appears to be largely under control. Probable total cases are still way down from April peak 282,000 to 147,000 today, a drop of 47 percent, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). And so are deaths, which peaked on April 14 at 2,321 and are down to about 800 now, a 65 percent decrease. The overall mortality rate is down too, therefore, from 0.82 percent to 0.67 percent, judging from the peaks in the IHME data, thanks to treatments and therapies and protecting the elderly, by 18 percent. Thank goodness.

In the meantime, the top ten states in the country with the highest unemployment rates in August prior to many workers losing their benefits are all run by Democratic governors with the worst lockdowns. This could be coming to a state near you should Biden win and he locks down the economy again:Nevada 13.2%
Rhode Island 12.8%
Hawaii 12.5%
New York 12.5%
California 11.4%
Massachusetts 11.3%
New Mexico 11.3%
Illinois 11%
New Jersey 10.9%
Pennsylvania 10.3%
Now those numbers coming down in September, but that’s largely because people are losing their benefits and exiting the labor force altogether as the CARES Act expires. In September, 879,000 Americans left the U.S. labor force nationwide. So, we’re not out of the woods yet.

And clearly the impact of the ongoing lockdowns could have a major impact on the race. Trump at the debates made his closing argument to those states: “Take a look at what’s happening in Pennsylvania, where they’ve had it closed. Take a look at what’s happening with your friend in Michigan, where her husband’s the only one allowed to do anything. It’s been like a prison. Now it was just ruled unconstitutional. Take a look at North Carolina. They’re having spikes, and they’ve been closed. And they’re getting killed financially. We can’t let that happen, Joe, you can’t let that happen. We have to open up.”

But with the Covid pandemic less intense at the moment — and perhaps the vaccines we need right around the corner — America appears to be in a position to be renewed, and the economy is roaring with unprecedented 33.1 percent growth in the third quarter and 14 million jobs recovered in just five months.

The American people can clearly see the benefits of safely reopening. And in just a few short days, we’ll find out if they want to keep on reopening with Trump, or shut it back down with Biden. Stay tuned.
