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.

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.

Barack Obama will campaign with Joe Biden in an attempt to salvage what little is left of President Obama’s tattered legacy. An aide to the former president told ABC News that “President Obama plans to hit the trail soon, in addition to all the other activities he’s undertaken all year in support of electing VP Biden – as he’s said, we all have to do everything we can to win on November 3.”

It isn’t surprising that President Obama will campaign with Joe Biden. It’s just that President Obama is past his sell-by date. President Obama got fewer votes in 2012 than he got in 2008. That’s the only time in history that a US president got re-elected with fewer votes than for election.

Obama has participated in several fundraisers on behalf of Biden’s campaign and gave a primetime speech during the Democratic National Convention in which he excoriated President Donald Trump over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and extolled Biden’s leadership.

The former president has yet to travel to any of the traditional battleground states to campaign for Biden, mostly due to the greatly reduced in-person footprint the former vice president’s team has stuck to amid the ongoing pandemic.

The only battleground cities where President Obama might be welcome are Detroit, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Frankly, I’m not certain that he’d be welcome in Pittsburgh. Here’s why:

Compare that with this:

President Trump’s message appealed to voters because he preached the gospel of prosperity and restoration. Entire communities are getting rebuilt in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Industries have gotten rebuilt, starting with the energy industry, followed by manufacturing. Remember this?

I’d nickname President Obama Presidential Trash-Talker. I’d nickname President Trump Presidential Miracle Worker. Joe Biden is hoping that blue collar workers will forget the manufacturing jobs that disappeared during the Obama-Biden administration. I’m betting that won’t happen. If Joe Biden isn’t the recipient of divine intervention, the people will re-elect President Trump to another 4-year term in office.

Barack Obama might move the needle a little bit but he won’t move it in enough states. Democrats need to find a new savior. Right now, they don’t have one. They ran 30 (more-or-less) candidates for president. Sleepy Joe was the best of a terrible bunch.

Saying that Nancy Pelosi’s diatribe wasn’t her finest moment is understatement. Appearing on CNN’s The Situation Room, Nancy Pelosi lost her cool when Wolf Blitzer pushed her on the latest stimulus bill. During the interview, Pelosi said “What I say to you is, I don’t know why you’re always an apologist and many of your colleagues are apologists for the Republican position.” That’s rich. Calling CNN’s hosts GOP “apologists” is rich.

Pelosi wasn’t done, though. Next, she said “Ro Khanna, that’s nice. That isn’t what we’re going to do. And nobody’s waiting until February. I want this very much now because people need help now. But it’s no use giving them a false thing just because the president wants to put a check with his name on it in the mail.” Pelosi isn’t interested in compromising. She’s interested in saying no until she gets everything.

When she wasn’t lashing out at Blitzer, she lashed out at Democrats:

Andrew Yang, he’s lovely. Ro Khanna, he’s lovely. They are not negotiating this situation. They have no idea of the particulars

Then there’s this:

“What makes me amused, if it weren’t so sad, is how you all think that you know more about the suffering of the American people than those of us who are elected by them to represent them at that table,” Pelosi said.

What’s sad is having a rich San Fransisco hardline progressive living in a gated community telling people that they’re out of touch with people’s suffering. It’s really pathetic to see this:

As pathetic as that was, this diatribe is exponentially worse:

Seeing Pelosi screaming “We feed them” is kinda frightening. She was angry. Pelosi’s facial expressions said everything, though I thought it was interesting for her to say that President Trump’s $1.8 trillion package was “nowhere close to the good.” This partial paragraph speaks volumes:

In addition to Khanna and Yang, moderate Democrats in the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus have also been vocal in recent weeks about urging leaders to reach a deal to help Americans in need because of circumstances arising from the pandemic.

The Democrats on the Problem Solvers Caucus haven’t pushed any solutions. They’ve been spineless. Problem Solvers Caucus Democrats haven’t pushed Pelosi. She’s treated them like nuisances. That’s what she does with members of her caucus when they speak out against her.

It’s painfully obvious that Pelosi isn’t interested in negotiating with anyone. She’s pushed aside Mnuchin and Meadows, then the Problem Solvers Caucus, then Wolf Blitzer.

When Joe Biden tells reporters that he’ll tell voters after the election where he stands on the issue of packing the Supreme Court, what he’s really saying is that he intends to expand the Supreme Court if elected, then nominate legislative-minded justices to the Supreme Court. Democrats don’t want jurists on the SCOTUS. They want legislators in black robes.

Democrats, whether they’re supposedly moderates (think Christopher Coons) or far left nutjobs (think Kamala Harris), intend on gutting the US Constitution by confirming justices whose highest priority is establishing laws that Democrats couldn’t get passed legislatively. With these ‘jurists’, it isn’t about what the legislative language says. With these jurist/legislators, it’s about their policy preferences. But I digress.

As for packing the courts, Biden’s allies have taken to TV to lie about the definition of court packing:

Also on Fox News Sunday, Delaware Sen. Chris Coons, a close Biden ally, said the rushed way in which Republicans are trying to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court prior to the election “constitutes court-packing.”

That isn’t the definition of court packing. This is:

Typically, court-packing refers to expanding a court’s seats, and then confirming judges for those seats.

The term was created in the 1930s when FDR wanted an obedient court. Congress rejected FDR’s initiative. In 1983, then-Sen. Biden understood what court-packing was:

Democrats are pushing the theme that Mitch McConnell isn’t being straight about confirming justices to the Supreme Court. They’re both right and irrelevant. Republicans are defending themselves quite nicely by saying that the Constitution gives a) the president the authority to nominate justices right through his last day in office and b) the Senate the authority to confirm judges even on the last day of their term in office. Now that that’s been established, the public isn’t interested in other arguments.

What people won’t put up with is a secretive candidate. Joe Biden isn’t being straight with the people. Biden thinks that people don’t have the right to know whether he’d pack the court. I don’t think that’ll play well with voters. Voters prefer public servants over imperial rulers. Right now, Biden is acting like royalty. That isn’t a good look for him.

When a Michigan militia organization was arrested for planning to kidnap Michigan’s Democrat governor, she dishonestly spoke out. One thing she said was “Just last week, the president of the United States stood before the American people and refused to condemn white supremacists and hate groups like these two Michigan militia groups. Stand back and stand by, he told them. … Hate groups heard the president’s words not as a rebuke but as a rallying cry, as a call to action.”

At the first presidential debate, Democrat shill moderator Chris Wallace asked President Trump “are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence that we saw in a lot of these cities…” President Trump replied “sure” which prompted Vice President Biden to say “Then do it.” Apparently, Wallace forgot that he’d asked Trump that question in March, 2016. At that time, Trump condemned racist organizations.

Gov. Whitmer’s diatribe, like Sen. Harris’s well-rehearsed “I’m speaking” lines, would sound better if President Trump hadn’t vehemently criticized the KKK, various militias, white supremacists and anti-semitic statements.

Further, Democrat co-debaters moderators should stop treating Biden with kid gloves on race. Remember this fiasco?

Here’s VP Biden at his most demeaning:

Look at how upset Biden got when asked simple questions. His response to the interviewer was to accuse his interviewer of being a drug addict. HONEST QUESTION: Does Biden lack the temperament to be president? I think he’s lacking on that. But I digress. Back to the Whitmer kidnapping article:

In one of several videos that conservative music producer Robby Starbuck located on YouTube and posted to Twitter, suspect and alleged militia member Brandon Caserta seems to be speaking negatively about the president.

“Trump is not your friend, dude,” Caserta appears to say in the video. “And it amazes me that people actually believe that, when he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant.”

While President Trump still has a little ways to go to lock down a victory, President Trump’s re-election is definitely in sight. Despite what experts are predicting, polling is heading in President Trump’s direction. A combination of horserace polls in battleground states and fundamentals show President Trump in a strong position for re-election.

This Gallup poll definitely put a smile on President Trump’s face. It said “Gallup, in a survey between Sept. 14-28, found that 56% of registered voters said they were better off than they were four years ago, while just 32 percent said they were worse off. This is in spite of the coronavirus pandemic, which has also led to an economic downturn and a number of pandemic-related restrictions for businesses and schools across the country. But it suggests that voters still have a strong economy that carried through the majority of Trump’s term in mind.”

Vice President Biden is stuck because he’s trying to thread the needle with anti-fracking AOC supporters and with pro-fracking blue collar workers. He’s trying to unite 2 Democrat parties. President Trump doesn’t have that difficulty. His Republican Party is united behind him like never before. They haven’t left him. They’re enthusiastically supporting him. That’s allowing him to expand the GOP with events like this:

The Gallup poll is significant for multiple reasons. The most important reason it’s important is because it’s proof that President Trump has convinced a significant majority of people that his policies are helping. Despite the MSM’s best propagandist efforts, only one-third of the people think that they’re worse off today than they were 4 years ago.

Vice President Biden’s challenge is to convince people that President Trump’s policies aren’t working. If he hasn’t convinced the people of that by now, it isn’t likely that he’ll experience a breakthrough in the next 23 days.

President Trump’s re-election isn’t guaranteed at this point but the light at the end of the tunnel doesn’t look like the freight train, either. Presidentt Trump’s army of volunteers aren’t getting complacent. They’re still out there each day contacting voters. That’s how elections are won.
