Joe Biden is up a paddle without a creek. He’s trying to convince America that we’re doing terribly when we’re actually starting to recover. Trish Regan’s article highlights some of the things that are going right:

For example, unemployment is coming down. Indeed, at 7.9%, it’s about half what people thought it would be at this time. Meanwhile, the economy is expected to log its highest growth in history this quarter, with the Atlanta Fed predicting a gain of 33%. Meanwhile, earnings are coming in strong as shown by both Goldman Sachs today, and JP Morgan Chase yesterday. Couple that with the new rise in small businesses optimism and a new poll from Gallop which shows that 56% of the country says it’s better off NOW than four years ago…and, well, things are increasingly seeming rather GOOD.

The 33% increase in GDP is real but it’s artificial, too. It’s artificial in the sense that it’s up from virtually nothing because of the shutdown. Though Joe Biden disagrees, things are heading in the right direction.

Let’s stick with the economy and see why it’s recovering. Mike Pence’s op-ed provides the right information:

President Trump delivered historic tax cuts and tax reform, majorly rolled back burdensome federal regulations, unleashed America’s energy sector, and fought for free and fair trade. Throughout our first three years, businesses large and small created nearly 7 million jobs, including 500,000 manufacturing jobs. Unemployment rates for African Americans, Asian Americans and Hispanic Americans hit their lowest levels ever, and we achieved the lowest unemployment rate for women in 65 years.

Check this out:

President Trump has put in place policies that created one of the best economies in the past half-century. When Democrats say that we’re going through “a K-shaped recovery”, they’re lying. By Joe Biden’s dishonest definition, a K-shaped recovery means that the rich get richer, the poor get poorer. According to Larry Kudlow, that isn’t happening. Wages are increasing faster for lower wage earners than for white collar income earners.

Vice President Biden doesn’t have a winning message on the economy. That’s why he hasn’t told the truth about it. He’s shifted his story on raising taxes multiple times in recent months. He’s said that he’d eliminate the Trump tax cuts, which included lots of middle class tax cuts. The Trump tax cuts also increased the per child tax credit. That was in his first debate with President Trump. Later in that debate, he said that he’d only raise taxes on those making $400,000 a year. You can’t have it both ways.

Katie Pavlich’s latest Townhall column should frighten the daylights out of the Biden campaign. This afternoon, a Biden surrogate said that rally attendance doesn’t equal votes. I disagree with that. I wrote here about something that Brad Parscale said the day before the New Hampshire Primary.

Parscale said “96.6% of the people who attend a Trump rally wind up voting for him.” Additionally, Parscale said that “if a person who attends a Trump rally and who makes a contribution, the chances of that voter returning and voting for Trump jumps to 98.4%.” That sounds to me like attending a Trump rally eventually turns into voting for President Trump. But I digress. Back to the Pavlich article. She quoted RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel’s tweet:


This isn’t a fluke. It’s been happening at Trump rally after Trump rally. If it happens occasionally, it’s a bit fluky. If it happens frequently, it’s a pattern. This fits as a pattern.

This is from today:


One last tweet:


Put these statistics together points to one thing — a solid Trump victory. Hopefully, that equates to unified GOP governance. Finally, what these statistics don’t point to is a blue wave. You can write that wave off.

Joe Biden’s panic for the Hunter Biden-Burisma scandal is showing. RedState is reporting that the Biden presidential campaign won’t have any public appearances until Thursday night’s debate in Memphis. Supposedly, he’s off the trail for “debate prep.” If you aren’t buying that, you aren’t alone.

That isn’t the only reason for Biden’s panic. The MSM has been pushing the narrative that the Hunter Biden-Burisma scandal is a “Russian disinformation operation.” This morning, DNI Ratcliffe shot that narrative to smithereens.

Meanwhile, one-trick pony Adam Schiff insists that the e-mails are part of a Russian disinformation operation. John Ratcliffe totally shreds the Schiff misinformation operation during his interview with Maria Bartiromo:

“It’s funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence,” Ratcliffe said. “Unfortunately, it is Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.”

He added: “Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Adam Schiff, or any member of Congress.”

That’s coming from the guy who sees the most intelligence in the US with the exception of the President. By now, it’s apparent that this isn’t just a smear campaign against the Biden campaign. By now, it’s apparent that this scandal is real and that the proof for it is legitimate and verified.

The first sign that the Hunter Biden scandal was turning into the Hunter Biden-Joe Biden scandal happened when the Biden campaign shifted its story from saying that Joe Biden didn’t meet with Vadym Pozharskyi to saying that Vice President Biden might’ve met informally with Mr. Pozharskyi. At the time, Mr. Pozharskyi was a member of the board at Burisma. After that, the next big bombshell to drop was official verification that the emails were real. This happened when FNC’s Mike Emanuel contacted one of the people on the email chain. This is Emanuel’s report:

This won’t help Biden:


Hunter Biden’s attorney called the computer repair shop right before the first NYPost story ran and the chain was verified by one of the people cc’ed on the chain. That’s what’s called corroboration. This adds another item for Biden to explain away:

This was on top of a May 2014 email from Burisma advisor Vadym Pozharskyi that asked for Hunter Biden’s help in stopping “politically motivated actions.” “We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message / signal, etc. to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions,” it read according to Fox.

An email also asked for “influential current and/or former US [sic] policy-makers to Ukraine” to help PR and stop any investigation against the head of Burisma. Another thanked Hunter for the introduction to his father and said it was a “great pleasure.”

Despite all this information becoming public, Joe Biden angrily insists that this is nothing more than a smear campaign. Despite the fact that people on the cc list have verified the authenticity of the e-mail chain, Joe Biden continues to lie. Despite this verification, Twitter still insists that it’s hacked information. Twitter still has the NYPost’s Twitter account locked. It’s sounding more and more like Joe Biden and other Democrats are just old-fashioned Soviet oligarchs.

Though she didn’t admit it during her interview with KSTP’s Tom Hauser, Tina Smith’s dipping and dodging said that she’s a yes vote for packing the US Supreme Court. When asked if she’d vote to expand the Supreme Court and blow up the Constitution, Sen. Smith said “It is completely premature to talk about what we would do with the Supreme Court because we don’t know what the situation is going to be. I’m going to wait and see what happens. But let’s be clear here. What is happening right now is the Republicans are packing the court by pushing through the Supreme Court nominee against the will of the American public who believe the next president, whoever that person may be, should be the one who appoints the next Supreme Court justice. They changed their rules in order to push people onto the Supreme Court that they want to have there and that’s what they’re trying to distract us all from now.”

Sen. Smith is dodging answering the question because she wants to have another 6 years in office for people to forget about her vote to dismantle the Constitution. Voting to expand the Supreme Court is a vote to dismantle the Constitution because the Constitution relies on consisting of 2 political branches and a judicial, non-political branch.

This past week gave Democrats 3 days to tell America that their preference for a Supreme Court justice was a politician in a black robe. Democrats kept asking Judge Barrett whether she’d take into consideration the impact her decisions might have if confirmed. Judge Barrett consistently said that it’s her job to interpret the law, not write the law.

If anything is obvious, it’s that Tina Smith votes with Sen. Schumer 95+ percent of the time. Here’s what Sen. Schumer recently said about destroying the Supreme Court and the Constitution:

Once you have unified Democrat DC government, the Supreme Court will become a political branch of government. The constitutional principle of checks and balances will disappear forever. The Constitution is supposed to be a limiting document in that it’s supposed to limit government. The more that government invades our lives, the fewer choices We The People have.

I’m positive that Sen. Jason Lewis would vote against expanding the Supreme Court, thereby dismantling the Constitution. I’m as positive of that as I’m positive that Tina Smith would vote for expanding the Supreme Court and dismantling the Constitution.

Because they’re the party of government, Democrats generally don’t like limiting government. The Democrats’ worst nightmare the past 5 years was RBG dying with a Republican president and a Republican majority in the US Senate. Now their worst nightmare has happened, they’re thinking of ways to change the rules. That’s why expanding the Supreme Court is imperative to Democrats. To do that, they need Tina Smith in the Senate so Democrats can become the majority. They need unified Democrat governance in DC.

Mark Kelly’s police problem isn’t going away anytime soon. That’s because the Democrat candidate for the US Senate is attempting to be too clever with his non-apology apology. Kelly’s spokesperson said that “Our campaign values the public service, bravery and sacrifice of police officers across our nation. The tweet posted by a junior staff member is unacceptable and we are taking the appropriate action.” When asked to describe what that action was, Peters failed to provide additional details.

First, L’Heureux initially tweeted “@Chicago_Police you worthless f—ing pigs.” That’s why L’Heureux is getting disciplined. The Kelly campaign issued a statement, which “included a statement from L’Heureux.” In his statement, L’Heureux said “I deeply regret my comment and apologize for what I wrote – I was wrong. My comment does not reflect who I am or what I believe, and most importantly, it is not representative of what this campaign stands for. The language I used and the sentiment I conveyed do not belong in our political process, which is why I have deleted the tweet.”

That’s what dishonesty looks like. His comment reflects who he is and what he believes. If he didn’t believe it, why did he say it? That’s why the McSally campaign jumped all over this situation:

“It’s no wonder why the Arizona Police Association endorsed Martha McSally in this race. They know what we’ve known all along: Martha will have their back; Mark will throw them to the wolves,” said Caroline Anderegg, a McSally campaign spokesperson.

This is worth pondering:

Joe Clure, the executive director of the Arizona Police Association, slammed Kelly’s campaign for the vile remark.

“It sadly isn’t the first time I’ve seen this from Democratic campaign personnel,” Clure told the The Free Beacon. “I hope that [Kelly] fires [the staffer] immediately to show that he doesn’t condone this kind of attitude that police are ‘f—ing worthless.'”

The fact that the Kelly campaign isn’t talking about what discipline they’ve meted out says everything. What’s so difficult to take this staffer to task? Some statements require a verbal warning. Others require a written warning. L’Heureux’s statement requires a termination notice, in my estimation.

The Kelly campaign is aptly described as embattled. This McSally interview speaks volumes why Kelly’s campaign is embattled:

Kelly’s campaign lacks police support. The good (?) news is that he makes up for that lack of support with support from the Chinese.

It isn’t difficult to figure out that Tina Smith is a place-holder senator in DC. She’s there to be a reliable vote for Sen. Schumer. Expecting her to show any leadership skills is a waste of time. She’ll vote no to confirm Judge Amy Coney-Barrett to a spot on the Supreme Court, just like faux centrist Amy Klobuchar.

Wouldn’t it be fun having a leader in the Senate instead of these do-nothings? Jason Lewis is that leader. He’s ready to go to Washington, DC to hold the powerful accountable. For instance, Jason Lewis just said that he’d hold Big Tech accountable:

Republican Senate candidate Jason Lewis called out Big Tech’s censorship after Twitter and Facebook suppressed a story about Hunter Biden. Twitter blocked users from sharing a New York Post story Wednesday that contained alleged emails from Hunter Biden. Twitter did so under the guise of the story being “potentially harmful,” and Facebook took similar actions the same day.

After the news broke, former Congressman Lewis renewed his commitment to take on Big Tech if elected. “With the latest abuse of monopoly power, it’s long past due to end the censorship of Big Tech. They are, in the middle of a crucial election, making what amounts to a series of campaign donations to liberal Democrats. And the only reason they’re able to get by with it is the Sec. 230 carveout they got in the ’96 [Communications Decency] Act, not available to other editors and publishers. That ends when I get to the Senate,” Lewis told Alpha News.

I wrote here that the Biden scandal has now been verified. Twitter still won’t let the story be shared. Twitter still has the Twitter account of the NYPost locked. Twitter won’t unlock the NYPost’s account until they delete the tweet with the Biden Scandal url. That’s old-fashioned Soviet-style censorship. That’s the type of thing that the Chinese Communist Party still does.

Tina Smith was bought by Big Tech:

U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement calling on Senator Tina Smith to return the campaign contributions she has received from big tech monopolies in the wake of latest censorship attempts:

Big tech and the mainstream news media are no longer fair and honest arbiters, but instead are acting as partisan activists bordering on election interference. Especially so when big tech platforms that are supposedly pledged to neutrality censor published stories revealing corruption involving their preferred Presidential candidate, Joe Biden.

“Senator Tina Smith has taken more than $14,000 dollars from big tech monopolies since getting to the Senate—including $5,000 dollars from Facebook—which I call upon her to return immediately. Her failure to do so would merely be the latest indication of how compromised she’s become in Washington, whether the donors are from Silicon Valley or from multinationals outsourcing American jobs to China.

Expecting Tina Smith to stand up against Big Tech’s censorship of political speech is foolish. She’s spineless on that front. She’s a special interest magnet.

This article explains what’s happening in Minnesota. It’s long been known that Minnesota’s political landscape was changing. The last 4 years, though, have shown that the pace of change accelerated.

The article opens by saying “Ask Larry Cuffe why, after decades of voting for Democrats, he voted for Donald Trump four years ago, and he’ll talk about his distrust of Hillary Clinton and the need to get northern Minnesota’s mines back to work. Ask the former police officer why he’s sticking with Trump in 2020 and the list is very much longer.” The simplest way of putting things is by saying that President Trump has kept most of his promises to Blue Collar America. He hasn’t been perfect but he’s worked tirelessly to do what he promised. The political establishment hasn’t worked hard to support the lunchpail crowd.

Andrea Zupancich, a real estate agent and part-time mayor of the small city of Babbitt who also voted for Obama and signed the letter in support of Trump, twice testified to Congress that China dumping cheap steel on the US was killing her community. She said the imports drove down demand for iron ore from the mines around Babbitt which cost jobs, battered the local economy and drove people to leave the city. “We were pleading with Obama to do something about this. He started doing a little bit and then it just kind of fizzled,” she said.

Zupancich credits Trump for standing up to China by imposing tariffs on its steel that she says has injected new life into the industry in the US and the Iron Range. “The tariffs, that is causing an equal playing field for the selling of our steel, so we’ve noticed an increase in the mines’ production. We see that they’re hiring people, they’re putting money back into the mines. They’re planning on mining for a while,” she said.

The next time Joe Biden insists that President Trump took over a booming economy, then ruined it, throw this back in his face. The Obama-Biden administration hurt the Iron Range in northeast Minnesota and steel mill towns in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

President Trump got rid of the Obama regulations that revitalized the energy industry. Now we’re energy independent and energy dominant. President Trump imposed tariffs on China when they tried cheap steel into the US. It didn’t take long for China to stop dumping steel into the US. When the China steel dumping stopped, the Iron Range’s economy was revitalized. The Obama-Biden administration was mostly about career politicians flapping their gums. The Trump administration specializes in fixing economic problems.

“We are sitting on a half a trillion dollars’ worth of copper and nickel,” said Zupancich. “We import all our nickel whereas we could provide 90% of the world’s nickel and the state would really benefit. The mining taxes pay for our schools for the entire state.”

The plan ran into opposition from Minnesota Democrats over environmental concerns. To Zupancich it didn’t make sense if a ban on mining in northern Minnesota means the minerals then come from countries such as China or Russia with lower environmental and other standards.

Joe Biden snapped at a CBS reporter when asked about Hunter Biden’s corruption scandals. Yes, there are multiple scandals. The first scandal involved Ukraine and was reported by the NYPost. Twitter immediately censored tweets with the link to that article. Imagine what he’ll say when he’s confronted with the fact that an email chain with links to China was authenticated by another person on the email chain. Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire.

According to the second article, “One of the people on an explosive email thread allegedly involving Hunter Biden has corroborated the veracity of the messages, which appear to outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm. One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of ‘remuneration packages’ for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Hunter Biden as ‘Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,’ in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co.” This explains things:

Now Peter Schweizer is on the case. This won’t have a happy ending:

Schweizer has been given access to the gmail account of one of Hunter Biden’s business partners. This partner is already in prison. Devon Archer has been convicted but not sentenced. The only ‘partner’ that isn’t in prison or convicted is Hunter. I’d be sitting on pins and needles if I was Hunter.

This won’t put out the Biden Family scandal anytime soon:

The Bidens’ relationship with Ukraine came under special attention last year as House Democrats pursued an impeachment inquiry surrounding President Trump’s now-infamous July 25 call with Ukraine’s president. In it, Trump asked President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the former vice president, who was suspected of abusing his authority to pressure the government into firing its top prosecutor.

Another email from May of 2014 shows Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Burisma’s board, allegedly shows him asking for the younger Biden’s advice on how to stop “politically motivated actions.”

“We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message / signal, etc. to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions,” it reads. And less than a year later, a purported email from Pozharskyi shows him thanking Hunter Biden for an invitation to meet his father.

In other words, President Trump was totally justified in asking President Zelenskiy’s help in investigating the Biden Family business. It’s just another instance where the establishment ridiculed President Trump initially before President Trump got the last laugh.

I started my political night watching Joe Biden answer softball questions from George Stephanopoulos. After hearing 5 Biden lies in the first 3+ minutes, though, I had to bail. Joe Biden is insufferable. I was DVRing both candidates’ townhalls so I switched in the hopes of seeing a more entertaining debate.

Unfortunatel, I was treated to Savannah Guthrie interrogating questioning President Trump for the first 16 minutes of the NBC townhall. The bad news is that Ms. Guthrie had little respect for President Trump. The good news is that President Trump handled Guthrie’s hostility with magnanimity … to a point. One thing that President Trump was asked was to condemn white supremacy to 8,475th time. He condemned it in strong, unambiguous terms, then added that Joe Biden should be asked to condemn Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other Democrat hate organizations.

President Trump didn’t raise his voice. He wasn’t argumentative but it sent a clear message. Shortly thereafter, Ms. Guthrie started soliciting questions from the audience. Last night’s ‘townhalls’ weren’t legitimate townhalls. Biden’s event was like a Guthy-Renker infomercial. President Trump’s event was more like an interrogation. That’s fine. Trump’s a big boy. He handled things just fine:

This is disgusting:

One of the questioners at the ABC-hosted event was Nathan Osburn, a former speechwriter for the Obama White House. Osburn specifically worked for the Office of Public Affairs at the Commerce Department under the Obama-Biden administration and at the Small Business Administration.

Here’s a softball, Joe. Hit it out of the park. Sheesh. You’d think that these activists/DNC operatives would learn that they don’t get away with this. The Democrats’ heavyhanded tactics will cost Democrats this election. When the dust settles, the MSM will have helped Republicans strip Pelosi of her speaker’s gavel. Republicans will enlarge their Senate majority and give President Trump another 4 years in office.

The people have had enough. The backlash is building. The Democrats’ tactics will have failed. Democrats have ignored Main Street. Democrats are now the Party of Silicon Valley and Wall Street, the Party of Antifa and BLM.
