This article highlights today’s campaign from the battleground states. Kamala Harris, the Democrats’ nominee for Joe Biden’s ticket, spent the day in Wisconsin. Biden spent the day in Pennsylvania pretending to be the unions’ friends.

Later, at an AFL-CIO virtual town hall with union President Richard Trumka, Biden called Trump’s alleged remarks about fallen soldiers being “losers” and “suckers” un-American and said Trump would never understand why Americans serve. Trump has denied the remarks. “He’ll never understand you, he’ll never understand us, he’ll never understand our cops, our firefighters, because he’s not made of the same stuff,” Biden said.

That’s the least of Biden’s worries, though. This is a much bigger worry:


What’s happening to Joe Biden? We’ve gotten reports that he’s gone bikeriding in his neighborhood so it isn’t that he’s out of shape. I’m not a doctor so I won’t speculate about what’s happening. Still, honest people have admitted that Vice President Biden isn’t capable of remembering important things.

Even if Biden remembered things, he’d still be at a loss because he isn’t capable of putting the US on the right economic path. Larry Kudlow eviscerates Biden in this interview:

What’s impressive is that President Trump didn’t just preside over a great economy once. The pre-COVID economy was excellent. Then COVID hit, which shut the US economy down for 2 months. When it re-opened, it started creating jobs virtually immediately. When the economy created 2,700,000 jobs in May, the unemployment rate dropped from 14.7% to 13.3%. When the economy created 4,800,000 jobs in June, the unemployment rate dropped to 11.1%. When the economy created 1,800,000 jobs in July, the unemployment rate dropped to 10.2%. When the economy created 1,400,000 jobs in August, the unemployment rate dropped to 8.4%. Since re-opening from COVID, the economy has created 10,600,000 jobs in 4 months.

That’s more jobs created in 4 months than Obama-Biden created in 8 years. Then there’s Kamala Harris fracking flip-flop:

BASH: President Trump, Vice President Pence, they have been campaigning more and more on the issue of fracking, which is a process of oil and gas drilling. They think that this is going to help them win votes in key states like Pennsylvania. Joe Biden has said — quote — “I am not banning fracking.” During your primary campaign, you said that you supported a ban. Are you comfortable with Joe Biden’s position?

HARRIS: Yes, because Joe is saying, listen, one, those are good- paying jobs in places like Pennsylvania, and, two, that we need to also invest and put a significant investment in the good-paying union jobs that we can create around clean energy, around renewable energy. And that is the kind of approach we need to have, but always understanding that it’s a false choice to suggest that we either take care of jobs or we take care of our environment. We can do both, and we should do both.

Here’s the video of Sen. Harris being as dishonest as San Fran Nan about getting hoodwinked by a salon owner:

Other than Joe needing a teleprompter to read his answer to an AFL-CIO question and Sen. Harris’s fracking flip-flop, there was nothing new from the Democrat campaign trail.

It’s obvious that Joe Biden’s press availability Friday was scripted. It was so scripted that Chris Stirewalt noticed it. After Biden criticized President Trump for the comments he didn’t make in France 2 years ago, Biden launched into another attack on what Biden calls a “K-shaped recovery.” According to Biden, the Trump economy makes the rich richer while making the poor poorer.

That’s been disproven multiple times by Larry Kudlow alone but Democrats don’t care about facts. Facts aren’t stubborn things to Democrats. They’re irrelevant to today’s Democrats. The first question was posed by The Atlantic’s Edward-Isaac Dovere about The Atlantic’s article that accused President Trump of calling dead WW I soldiers suckers and losers. Dovere asked “When you hear these remarks — ‘suckers,’ ‘losers,’ recoiling from amputees, what does it tell you about President Trump’s soul and the life he leads?”

The next set-up question was asked by CNN’s MJ Lee, who asked this leading question:

I wonder if you worry that this kind of language that comes from the president of the United States can deter some Americans who are tuning into him to not wear masks.

Next was Ed O’Keefe’s two-fer:

CBS News correspondent Ed O’Keefe squeezed in two questions for Biden, the first of which asked what the former vice president thought of Trump’s supposed suggestion to voters that they should vote both by mail and in-person. The second question asked why Biden wasn’t “angrier” at Trump’s reported comments about the fallen soldiers.

Then there’s this:

ABC News correspondent Mary Bruce also questioned Biden about Trump’s attempts to discourage mail-in voting but invoked Russia’s efforts to “sow doubt” in the electoral process and whether Biden was “concerned” that such messaging may be working to disenfranchise his own supporters.

After that, Stirewalt entered the discussion:

So seldom do reporters get to ask Joe Biden questions, so seldom do reporters — this is the second time really in quite a while … and that was shamefully embarrassing,” Stirewalt told “Outnumbered Overtime”. “I mean, there were two questions in there that maybe could have been considered adversarial but that was as bad as when Trump calls on some niche pro-Trump publication to ask him how magnificent his magnificence is.”

Stirewalt singled out O’Keefe for the question about why Biden wasn’t “angrier” about Trump’s reported comments, sarcastically calling it his “favorite.” “I’m just sitting here listening thinking, ‘Don’t you want to know about his plans? Don’t you want to know about the controversy surrounding his plans? Don’t you want to know anything?'” Stirewalt exclaimed. “The closest we got to adversarial questioning was when they were asking him about whether he got his coronavirus test up his nose or whatever.”

Friday morning, the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) issued the August Jobs Report. According to the report, the economy created 1,400,000 jobs in August, an astonishing report. As noteworthy as that is, the headline was that the unemployment rate dropped from 10.2% to 8.4%, the second-biggest percentage drop in history. Not a single question was asked about the jobs report or about Biden’s plan to raise taxes. That didn’t fit the media’s agenda, though, so they asked about President Trump’s soul instead.

I won’t call these gas-bags reporters or journalists. They’re Democrat propagandists. Period.
