Much as Leftists might try and delude themselves into believing Kamala Harris is in any way a competent or even likable person, there is no question as to who won the vice presidential debate: VP Mike Pence.
And you know that this is the case because of the various excuses the fake news media is throwing as well as the various distractions they are trying to make, such as attempting to make a huge story about how a fly was on Pence’s head or how one of Pence’s eyes was a little red or how Karen Pence went up to her husband to congratulate him without wearing a mask (because why would she? He is her husband). They have to distract people from thinking that Kamala was utterly destroyed because that is exactly what we saw, so these excuses have to come out in droves.
However, predictably so, the biggest excuse to come out of this debate is that Pence is at fault for debating a woman and that he is a sexist for “mansplaining” things to her, which is code for simply pushing back against the b.s. she was trying to spew. In the mind of the Left, Pence had to take everything Harris threw at him without any sort of pushback whatsoever in order to stave off being called a sexist. Of course, had he done that, they still would’ve called him that for the briefest of moments, but they would’ve focused more on how “Kamala Harris wiped the floor with VP Pence.”
Again, an indication that that is exactly what DIDN’T happen is that that’s not the topic of conversation. Had she won, all the fake news media would be talking about would be about how she won, not about how Pence was “condescending” or “mansplaining” or “sexist”, which is utterly ludicrous considering Mike Pence is one of the politest politicians around.
They levy the same accusations at Pence that they did at Trump in 2016, when Trump was debating Hillary. Back then, they also accused him of “sexism” and utter crap like that (because Hillary also lost her debates) and now, they are just repeating the same thing but about Pence.
Ironically, while you can reasonably claim that Trump is abrasive and that can come off as rude (this is where I should remind people that in the first debate, Joe Biden was the first one to interrupt Trump), you absolutely cannot make the same claim of Mike Pence, who never shows an aggressive side or anything of the sort.
So to say that Pence was “out of line” or was “rude” or whatever else is utterly divorced from reality, not that that’s any surprise considering the people making these claims also claim that a baby in the womb is not a human, that binary gender is not biological fact, and that our air conditioning systems are warming up the planet or cooling it down whenever one argument is more favorable (which is usually in the corresponding seasons).
It actually reminds me of something interesting. I have been recently re-watching The Apprentice, beginning with the first season, and one aspect of the people (specifically some of the women) in the show that I noted is that they are very rude, classless individuals. This was the season where that moron Omarosa appeared, and throughout it, she displayed an utter lack of class (though others did as well). It actually got me to wonder how it was that Trump ever thought of hiring her in his administration in the first place, but I digress.
The reason I bring this up is because one thought that ran around as I was watching the show is that you can completely destroy someone else while also having and displaying class. The fictional character on the show “Dynasty”, Alexis Carrington, is such an example, someone who was often outright called a “superbitch” but who never failed to show class when tearing apart those she considered to be opponents.
That’s not to say that Mike Pence is Alexis Carrington, or that he is a “superbitch”, but that is to say that he destroyed his debate opponent without sacrificing his class or dignity. Keep in mind, I’m also not saying that Trump sacrifices dignity or anything, but his more abrasive style does make one think he has less class than someone like Pence (though if one watches The Apprentice, one can see that he does, indeed, have plenty of class).
Kamala getting decimated should not really be a surprise to anyone. I remember vividly how some idiots on the Left believed Kamala would “destroy” Pence in their debate, which confused me considering the fact that she got so obliterated by Tulsi Gabbard, someone the vast majority of people on the Left really don’t like because they think she was a Republican spy or something, and shortly after suspended her campaign, being the first Democrat to do so.
She is a woman utterly rejected by the Democrat base and someone who was decimated totally by the only Democrat I relatively tolerated in that entire primary, and yet, she was going to destroy Pence? Her, a woman whose sole qualifications for being a running mate, to the acknowledgement of Jim Crow Joe, are being brown and having a vagina? Give me a break.
She went into that debate completely unprepared, ready to spout out talking point after talking point and hoax after hoax, hoping that it would be a 2-on-1 like the first presidential debate was, and when Pence masterfully destroyed her arguments, she began to condescendingly smirk and dismiss Pence, to the point where even an independent pollster (who believes Biden is winning the election) recognized that Harris came off extremely poorly here.
People were reminded, in that 90-minute debate, just why it was that Kamala was the first person to end her primary campaign: she’s a horrible debater and people don’t like her. The first point is the most relevant one out of the two, but it’s worth reminding people how unlikable she is. She is basically the Jamaican version of Hillary Clinton, if Clinton had considerably less power and her family directly benefited from slave ownership.
And because of that, fake news pundit after fake news pundit came out lambasting Pence for debating a woman, as though it’s his fault that Joe Biden chose Harris for no other reason apart from her skin color and gender (something which normal people would consider racist and sexist but liberals consider “woke”). “Mike Pence is a sexist!” screams the ignorant, petulant Leftist child who is so entitled that he believes a man effectively debating a woman is some sort of cardinal sin.
Matt Walsh of The Daily Wire points this out perfectly well: “[A]s we have learned time and again, feminists actually want special treatment even while clamoring for equal treatment.” These rabid Leftists shout “sexism” at Pence treating his debate opponent as a debate opponent and not as a delicate little flower whom should be protected from the evils of the world.
These “feminists” are whining about the very thing that they claim to support: equality. Pence treated Harris as an equal, not underestimating her because she’s a woman or because she has a different skin tone to him. That, in the mind of the hypocritical liberal, cannot be allowed to stand. Leftist women must be treated like queens while conservative women, though they also are women, can be treated like utter garbage. This much is clear in their coverage of women like Kayleigh McEnany, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Melania Trump, Sarah Palin, etc., etc.
They don’t support equality whatsoever. They support Leftist supremacy under the guise of equality. If a black man supports Trump, he is a race traitor. If a woman supports Trump, she is a traitor to her gender. If a Latino supports Trump, he is betraying his Latinx (have I mentioned how much I hate that word?) brothers and sisters. This is their mentality because they believe blacks, Latinos, women and minorities in general all belong to them. They never abandoned the slaveowner’s mentality.
And when they see an old, white man effectively decimating their young, brown queen, despite her own clear faults and lack of preparedness for the debate, they screech about the “patriarchy” and how this is an example of it running rampant in politics.
It’s, yet again, nothing but a massive temper tantrum. Pence destroyed Harris and let me tell you something: if Kamala were Trump’s conservative VP and Pence were Biden’s communist running-mate, aka if the roles were completely reversed, the news media would be attacking Kamala for some of the same reasons I just described: she’s a race and sex traitor.
Their exclamations that Kamala was unfairly attacked by Pence because she is a brown woman are full of crap because we all know what would’ve happened had the roles been reversed.
Pence decimated Harris. This much is clear given the Left’s neurotic and nonsensical response.

Despite the Left’s best efforts to blame Trump for even the very existence of this virus (and don’t tell me they never did this after Pelosi tried and failed to call this the “Trump virus”), many people across the world view China extremely unfavorably and in many cases, such views are at historic highs.
A new Pew Research Survey interviewed over 14,000 people from 14 different countries to ask them a series of questions, among which was their current views and attitude towards the communist country. The results were not at all surprising if one were looking at it rationally, as China has been demonstrably awful despite the Left’s best efforts to absolve them of any blame.
All of the countries surveyed currently have an unfavorable opinion of China and nine out of those 14 countries have historically high negative views on China, unsurprisingly, largely as a result of this past year.
The countries that have the lowest unfavorable view of China are Italy and Spain, where 62% and 63% view China unfavorably respectively. Which is a tad strange, considering just how badly the virus affected Italy. You would think many of them would express utter outrage towards China, but I suppose the survey found enough people with ties to China (as in people working for a Chinese company) for the survey to not show massive unfavourability towards China. I don’t know, that’s just my guess.
But like I said, those are the lowest unfavorable numbers for China, both of which were on the rise as of late anyway.
More than 70% of people in France, the U.S., South Korea, Netherlands, Germany and the U.K. view China unfavorably, and in Japan, Sweden and Australia, unfavourability is north of 80%.
According to the graphs given by Pew, many countries’ views on China worsened at some point after 2011, which makes sense, considering Xi Jinping has been the ruler of China since 2013. In Australia, for example, more than 50% viewed China favorably around the time that Xi took office and it went plummeting after that, with only 15% currently holding a favorable view. This is not really surprising, considering both the virus and the fact that there have been trade frictions between the two nations, particularly as Australia is practically trying to save Hong Kongers from China’s authoritarian rule.
When it comes to Japan, it’s not a particular mystery, considering that China and Japan are right next to each other and China has been zealous about expanding China’s territory and area of authority around the South China Sea (and yes, I know that Japan is closer to the East China Sea, but do you think China wouldn’t want to go elsewhere once Taiwan is also under their control?). Japan and China have been rivals for a very long time, so it’s no wonder whatsoever why 86% view China unfavorably and only 9% view it favorably.
Finally, in the 80-percent-and-over club of people who hate China’s guts there is Sweden which is a bit strange to me as well. Sweden has done the best out of any country in dealing with the virus, making sure there are precautions in place without stripping people of their basic civil and economic liberties, so to see them be just one point below Japan in terms of hating China is fairly surprising.
Looking at the graph provided by Pew, unfavourability began to skyrocket at some point between 2011 and 2020, most likely once Xi took office. I have no idea exactly why that is, as I don’t know what kind of relationship these two countries have with one another, but it’s safe to say that it’s not exactly an amicable one.
At any rate, moving on, the survey also asked people how they think various entities, including their own countries, did in handling the virus.
73% of people said they believe their own country handled the virus well, which is not particularly surprising. 63% say that the WHO handled the virus well, and THAT is fairly surprising, considering that they were covering for China and lying on their behalf for a while, refusing to recognize the virus as a pandemic for months and refusing to acknowledge that there was human-to-human transmission of the virus under orders of Xi.
But I guess such news didn’t reach that many people’s ears.
At any rate, 60% say the EU did a good job in handling the virus, which is a bit of a mixed bag. I’d say Sweden, which is in the EU, did a good job, but Spain, France, Germany, Italy and the U.K. have done awful jobs in handling the virus. So saying that the EU in general did well here is fairly misleading, in my opinion, since different countries in the globalist group employed different policies and did better than others.
When it comes to China, that is the first entity in the list which receives negative marks, with 61% saying that they did a bad job in handling the virus, which should really be considerably higher, but I’ll take it.
China is the sole reason for this virus having affected the world as it did. Had they been honest and transparent from the beginning, it would’ve given other countries more time to prepare. China refused to tell the truth about anything and refused to let in CDC officials from the U.S. to check things out. They used their ties to the WHO to lie to the world and still continue to lie to this day, having largely stopped counting COVID cases since March because they stopped testing people.
And unsurprisingly, even Pew is going along with the lie that all was fine and dandy in the epicenter of the disease: Wuhan.
“After initial cases of the coronavirus started appearing in China’s Hubei Province in late 2019, many around the world questioned the expediency of China’s response to the outbreak, and others critiqued some of the measures Beijing used to contain the virus within its borders. But in Wuhan, the original epicenter of the outbreak, the strict lockdown has ended and the new case count plummeted to at or near zero by May,” reported Pew.
Don’t act as though this is some great success story for China, Pew. Of course their case count is going to “plummet” when THEY LARGELY STOP TESTING PEOPLE IN AN ATTEMPT TO SEEM COMPETENT AND IN CONTROL! It was an act of deceit and many in the media have willingly gone along with it in order to weaponize the virus against their political opponents and painting China’s strict lockdowns as “the way” to beat the virus.
Truth is that no one outside of Wuhan knows the current situation in that place. Well, no one who isn’t a high-ranking member of the Chinese Communist Party, at least. Things might be better there than they were before, but the real death count is unknown and will likely never be known because of the CCP’s insistence on hiding the truth.
China set the world on fire and the world doesn’t like it as a result. Those unfavorable ratings are perfectly justified and, in my opinion, don’t even go far enough.
Now, I will briefly mention that Pew also showed that 84% of surveyors also said that the U.S. did a bad job in handling the virus, which is definitely much higher than China’s number, but there are some factors that need to be considered.
First, the fake news media was basically acting as though this was the end of the world. Even Chris Hayes recently tweeted something along the lines of “if we survive this” as though this wasn’t a virus with a 99.7% survival rate. They are acting in bad faith to hurt Trump and blame him for this, pretending like if you get the virus you are almost certainly going to die unless you vote for Biden. It’s b.s. and we all know it.
Second, SOME places in the U.S. handled it badly while some not as much. New York, California and Michigan have, I think, done the worst job in handling this virus, with Texas and Ohio somewhat being up there because of the idiotic governors buying everything the media was selling. Other states like Florida and those which have eased up on the lockdowns have, in my opinion, done a bit better (locking things down in the first place was idiotic, so they get bad marks for that, including my own state of Alabama where we STILL have unconstitutional “safer-at-home” orders).
While the Left tries to blame Trump for the handling of the virus, the truth is that Trump did his best with what he had (considering the Obama administration depleted the federal supply of N95 masks and did other things to screw us during a pandemic). He sent plenty of help to New York, for which Cuomo was thankful at the time. He gave them the ventilators they needed and sent them a medical ship which Cuomo didn’t even end up using, opting to send sick people to nursing and retirement homes in all his infinite idiocy.
But when it comes to policy in each state, the governors are at the helm and the ones who did the worst job are the Democrat ones.
This is something many will forget going into the election, particularly as the fake news media keeps trying to pin 200,000+ deaths on Trump alone instead of the incompetence (at best) of various governors and the deceit of the Chinese.
Aside from that, however, this is a good survey to see, in my opinion. A LOT of people have increasingly negative views of China, which is exactly what I want to see following the amount of bullcrap the CCP has been trying to pull as of late. They deserve all the scorn in the world, even beyond just the virus. They are attempting to destroy freedom everywhere they can, having taken over Hong Kong and setting their sights on Taiwan next. They are attempting to commit ethnic cleansing of Uyghur Muslims and silencing Christians by sending them to what can only be described as concentration camps, making China a 21st century Nazi Germany.
China should be viewed as the enemy of the world and many countries, slow as it may be, are beginning to do this. I hope and pray that this will lead to as many nations as possible to cut financial ties with China and seek to either work with one another, work with the U.S. or at the very least, if they still need to find some inhumanely cheap labor, work with India and some Latin American countries.
China must be financially suffocated like the Soviet Union if there is any hope of beating them.

It is rare for me to discuss the Leftist politicians of countries apart from the United States, but I feel it is fairly necessary here, considering how unbelievable this story is.
You see, last week, The Post Millennial uncovered footage of Trudeau’s Liberal Minister Catherine McKenna eating dog meat and bribing her way into an illegal cockfighting ring during a trip to Indonesia.
That was likely the tamest thing that has been discovered regarding that trip. Most recently, The Post Millennial discovered MORE footage from the same trip, this time around showing McKenna attending an arranged marriage and feasting on some of the buffalo that was used to purchase the bride.
According to The Post Millennial: “McKenna and her friends attend[ed] a wedding where the bride was purchased for three buffalo and $4.5 million Indonesian Rupiah – approximately $400 CAD ($301 USD). McKenna and her friends ate at least two of the buffalo that evening.” This all comes from a documentary titled: “Real Travels: 60 days in Indonesia,” in which the narrator is heard saying: “The male who is the highest bidder, got his bride to be,” and as it turns out, the groom was “the brother of [McKenna’s] tour guide that won the auction for the bride,” according to The Post Millennial.
So this Liberal cabinet member in Trudeau’s administration was discovered to have eaten dog meat, bribed her way into an illegal cockfighting ring, and attended an arranged marriage ceremony in which the bride was bid on as though she were an art piece or a boat, basically dehumanizing her by modern standards.
And these are the kind of people who screech about “ethics” and “morality” and “being on the right side of history”? This is ancient times type of stuff.
According to The Asean Post (not a typo): “According to 2018 figures from the Indonesian bureau of statistics, one in nine children under the age of 18 are married in Indonesia, or 11.2 percent from a total of 79.6 million children across the country. Meanwhile, according to a 2016 report by the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF), Indonesia has one of the highest rates of child marriages in the world.”
“UNICEF has also noted that Indonesia has the eighth highest absolute number of child brides in the world – 1,459,000,” continued the report.
A large part of the reason for so many child marriages and arranged marriages in general occurring is because of widespread poverty in the region. It isn’t uncommon for a man hailing from a wealthy family to negotiate with the parents of the bride so that they take money, livestock, or both, in exchange for the would-be bride’s hand in marriage. And like it was pointed out earlier, this often happens to girls before the age of 18 (which makes me wonder if the Podestas, Clintons, Obamas and Bidens have some sort of interest in the small island nation).
Not at all surprisingly, McKenna received severe backlash from women’s rights groups. One such person to lambast McKenna was Niken Lestari, who is the Executive Coordinator of FAMM Indonesia (couldn’t find exactly what it stands for). She told The Post Millennial that McKenna ought to “apologize by criticizing the practice and supporting women’s organizations in Flores, NTT province that have been working to organize and empower communities for years. There have been small and big changes happening at the grassroots level and it’s still going on. We need international support to push the national and provincial government to give strong action to this case.”
She continued: “Young women are suffering due to child marriages because they are vulnerable to [the] cycle of violence and they usually cannot access many public services such as education and legal documents.”
She concluded with: “Underage brides and grooms cannot have a marriage certificate unless there is an exemption letter issued by a religious court. If they don’t [have] a certificate, their children cannot have birth certificates and they can’t have a divorce certificate in case it happens. Those are the legal impacts, not to mention the psychological damage done to the child bride.”
It is an absolute nightmare to be a child bride (and seemingly, sometimes, groom) as these girls have no rights or say about the matter whatsoever. This is extremely immoral stuff, things Leftists would usually call “regressive” and “neanderthalian”, and yet, it seems McKenna had no issue with it whatsoever.
Now, I’m not saying that she should’ve stopped the wedding or caused some big scene or something, since that would not be productive. However, if she were at all a moral person, she would have, at the very LEAST, left the wedding as soon as she discovered what exactly was going on.
I don’t know the full context surrounding the event, I don’t know if she knew what kind of wedding this was going into it or if she found out at some point during it, but if she knew that the bride had been SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER at any point before or during the event, she displayed utter immorality by taking part in it.
Now, like I mentioned earlier, she also ate dog meat and bribed her way into an illegal cockfighting ring (for which animal rights activists are also lambasting her), so even if she didn’t know about what type of wedding this was until after she left, she’s not exactly a saint by any stretch of the imagination.
Which can easily be said of just about any other Leftist you can think of. Even according to the outward morality of the Left (as in, the things they outwardly claim are “moral”), this woman is still far from ethical. Liberals might be getting a tad bit cozier with the idea of eating bugs “to save the planet from climate change” but eating dogs is a bit of a leap from even that. And, of course, any conservative would tell you how stomach-twisting that idea is.
And bribing her way into an illegal cockfighting ring kind of speaks for itself in terms of its very immorality.
But this is just who these people are anyway. They reject God and in doing so, reject the morality that He has created, opting instead for a “man-made” morality which attempts to resemble God’s morality but fails miserably due to our evil nature.
A whole discussion about morality and philosophy can be had here, but that would take far too long and would make this article far too lengthy.
At any rate, it is absolutely fantastic to me to see people who proclaim themselves to be these great arbiters of progress and morality and truth be exposed for the deeply immoral garbage that they are. This point was subtly hinted at by The Post Millennial as they shared two tweets by McKenna about how climate change “disproportionately hurt women” or how “climate deniers target women” and such nonsense. She expresses, routinely, how she is a great champion of women, particularly as it pertains to things like climate change, but in reality, she offers nothing positive for women.
Again, it’s not like I was expecting her to come to that bought bride’s rescue or anything, but that she stayed there throughout the entire thing (and there is little reason to believe she didn’t know what exactly was going on) displays her true feelings towards other women: indifference.
If she truly cared about women, she would’ve either tried to say something or simply left the joint, followed by her making some sort of outraged statement online that pointed to the horrible situation women face in Indonesia. What she displayed, in the end, is utter indifference towards her fellow woman. “Sisterhood” is something that applies only when it is beneficial to the self; if there is nothing to be gained from it, it is dropped on its head.
I feel sorry for the bought bride and for the millions of children who are forced into such a situation in Indonesia alone, let alone elsewhere in the world. Too bad that McKenna couldn’t be bothered to remotely share in that lament, not that it’s in any way surprising.

I have pointed this out many times in the past, but it is particularly worth repeating here: A common tactic by Leftist polls is to oversample Democrats, undersample Republicans, or do both, in an effort to fool the public into believing that a Democrat candidate is ahead by a massive margin.
They did this all throughout 2016, have been doing this throughout 2020 and most recently, an NBC/WSJ poll had Biden leading Trump by 14 points, and shown widening his lead against the president. That poll showed that they sampled 35% of Democrats and 38% of Independents, compared to just 27% of Republicans. When you have 8% more Democrats than Republicans, of course you will see numbers like this.
And it’s all by design. The purpose is to make it look like Trump is blowing it so badly and he has no shot whatsoever at getting re-elected, so you Trump supporters might as well just stay at home on election day because you would just be wasting your time voting for someone who is only going to end up losing. As I have pointed out before, that is a bit of a double-edged sword because if enough Democrats also believe the polls, they will think that Biden is destined to win and there is no point in them going out to vote when it is guaranteed that Biden would win. Not to mention that maybe some Trump supporters might foolishly believe this (none of you folks who are reading this, as you are far too smart to fall for this b.s.) but far more will be fired up about voting for Trump and will encourage those close to them to vote for Trump because “it will be a hard-fought battle but a winnable one too”.
Some people look at themselves being behind and it fires them up to try harder.
But at any rate, we all know that the vast majority of these Left-wing polls are rigged in favor of the Democrats and always either oversample Democrats or undersample Republicans (not to mention that there might be some shy voters out there who intend to vote for Trump but fear retaliation for expressing such a desire). However, a recent Sunday Express/Democracy Institute poll shows Trump AHEAD of Biden nationally and in battleground states, giving Trump the electoral college advantage.
The Express reported that the poll “shows that Mr. Trump is still on course for victory with 46 percent of the popular support compared to his Democrat rival Joe Biden’s 45 percent… The poll was completed after the news broke out that President Trump and his wife Melania have been infected with Covid-19.”
“But 68 percent said the illness would not affect their vote while 19 percent said they were ‘more likely’ to support Trump and only 13 percent ‘less likely’. Almost two thirds said they felt sympathy and concern for the President while 38 percent said him getting the disease was ‘karma’ in an indication of the current divisive nature of US politics.”
I’ll say. A Morning Consult/Politico poll showed 40% of Democrats were “happy” to hear that Trump caught the Chinese coronavirus. These people are hateful, sick, deprived individuals who are the very things that they claim to stand against: hateful bigots. Thankfully, it seems that most people are common, decent people who are either sympathetic with the president or are in some way concerned for the president upon hearing the news, so that’s good.
At any rate, the Express continues: “Crucially, Mr. Trump’s lead in key swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin remains at 4 percent by 47 percent 43 percent [sic.].”
“This gives a projected Electoral College split of 320 to Trump and 218 to Biden,” the report continued.
An important aspect of this poll, which The Express pointed out, is that the survey was conducted on likely voters as opposed to other polls which usually survey registered voters. Likely voters are a better indication because someone could be registered to vote and might have an opinion to share, but that does not necessarily mean they are going to go out and vote accordingly.
The poll also shows Trump at a 50% approval to 48% disapproval, and most impressively, shows Trump with 18% of the black vote and 40% of Hispanics. In terms of enthusiasm, which is another big indicator, 83% of Trump voters are enthused about going out to vote for him while only 49% of Biden voters are enthused about voting for the Democrat, as well as the fact that 59% of Biden voters only intend to vote for Biden in order to vote against Trump while 86% of Trump voters will vote for the president in support of him as opposed to voting against Biden.
This is among the biggest reasons as to why Biden can’t draw flies to his rallies. If he could have massive rallies like Trump, he would have them. He may excuse his extremely small rallies as simply him trying to “limit the size of the crowds in order to not spread COVID,” but we all know that Biden doesn’t care about people’s health and if he could draw massive crowds of people like Trump can, he would not be shy about showcasing them, particularly knowing that the media won’t lambast him for doing the exact same thing that Trump does.
One last thing I will quickly point out about the poll before I get to the political split in the sample is that the poll asked the following question: “Which phrase better fits your own thinking about race in America: Black Lives Matter or All Lives Matter?”
26% said Black Lives Matter and 74% said All Lives Matter, which brings a smile to my face. Those two are not mutually exclusive, as black lives are naturally included in “all” lives, but one of my issues with the phrase “black lives matter” is that, while undoubtedly true, it excludes other people’s lives. Many might not intend to do that, but some do, particularly when the people that scream “black lives matter” also scream “all cops are bastards” and “kill cops.”
This particular question doesn’t have too much to do with Trump or the election (though it does in terms of which side is willing to say which phrase and which one better fits one’s belief system), but I thought I should point this out. They are loud but not in the majority, not even close.
At any rate, the political split in the sample goes as follows: 37% Democrat, 35% Republican and 28% Independent.
While they still sampled more Democrats than Republicans, it isn’t by such a massive margin as to be blatantly obvious that they want the Democrat to have better numbers. But even with this slight advantage to the Democrats, Trump still leads (not by a lot, but this is a far different story than what the rest of the fake news media is trying to tell) and is still on track to get re-elected.
Provided whatever cheating the Democrats attempt to do doesn’t work out how they intend it to, I expect Trump to serve another four years… and then another four… and then another four.
I joke of course, but I do believe he will win this election. However, as I always say, that does not give people license to not go out to vote for the guy. Don’t think that just because one poll is actually fair and shows Trump winning that that means we can just relax and take it easy. The poll itself pointed out early on that Trump slipped two percentage points since the last poll they did in September, so all Trump supporters need to do what we can to get the guy re-elected, not only for his sake but all of America’s sake.
With Trump, we will easily see America being made great again as we recover from the pandemic (we already are seeing some of that). I don’t think I need to remind you all how catastrophic it would be for this country if the Trojan horse of a candidate that is Joe Biden manages to win.

While this story is not the most important one regarding the First Family, as they are currently in quarantine due to the President and First Lady testing positive for the Chinese coronavirus (and I pray for a speedy recovery for the both of them), this is a story that shows both how unethical and pathetic CNN is.
Last Thursday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper held a segment with a former friend of Melania’s, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who secretly recorded messages she had with the First Lady to write a tell-all book (which I won’t reference because I don’t want to draw attention to it after what this backstabber did).
In this segment, CNN played various clips of calls the First Lady had with Wolkoff, ranging from things such as the migrant children held in shelters to the arranging of Christmas decorations.
The WORST thing that CNN pulled from the clips was Melania complaining about having to decorate the White House with Christmas decorations and hosting parties with people she barely knows.
But we’ll get to that in a moment. First, let’s talk about Jerk-… err, I mean, Wolkoff, and the things that she said on this segment with Cooper. During the interview, she criticized and outright insulted Melania, Donald and their supporters, saying things like: “You know, she’s complicit in everything that’s going on,” and “We are watching our democracy turned into a dictatorship at this point. And it’s a brainwash type of cultish,” as well as “The traditions of First Lady and President have gone out the window with this couple.”
That first thing, ironically, inadvertently helps push back against a bogus narrative that the Left had been pushing for a few years now: that Melania was constantly at odds with her husband or that she doesn’t even like him. The media, whenever they get an opportunity, will lie about how Melania “refused to hold the president’s hand” or some such nonsense, trying to drive a wedge between the married couple. It’s absolute nonsense and that first comment by Wolkoff, while she tried to attack Melania, inadvertently helped her out (which is a constant theme in this news story).
Melania being “complicit” in these things shows her support. Funny enough, Cooper asks Wolkoff about this, asking “Is [Melania] a cheerleader for the president? Is she a supporter of the president? Does she like the president?”
Normally, asking if the First Lady supports or likes the president would be an incredibly asinine question to ask, but since we are talking about the fake news media, nothing is off the table for these jackals. At any rate, Wolkoff answered: “Yes, she actually does, very much so. I mean, Melania holds a role like no other person in the White House. I mean, anyone, she doesn’t shake in her boots ever. And she tells Donald exactly how she feels. She is his biggest cheerleader. And she does believe that, if he’s going to do it, he better do it right. And you better do it with brass knuckles, and he better do it now. And those are her words.”
I’m sorry, but wasn’t she supposed to be lambasting Melania for… something? I mean, she’s writing a tell-all book about the Trump family in the White House, siding with the Left and trying to paint the First Couple as a highly dysfunctional and horrid couple whom should not be allowed another four years in the White House, so why is she making Melania look good and speaking well about her here?
Does she not know that that’s the message she’s sending here? Does she not know she’s helping the First Lady? Saying that “she doesn’t shake in her boots” is not an insult at any capacity – in fact, it’s a massive compliment that describes Melania as tough and resilient in the face of adversity.
I guess even when you’re trying to insult Melania, you have to give her respect.
At any rate, as far as the other two comments go, about the “turning democracy into a dictatorship and it’s brainwashing cult stuff” and “traditions are dead with this couple,” might I suggest these people find a new script? They’ve been calling Trump “Hitler” since before the 2016 election, asserted that he’s a dictator (if he was, they wouldn’t be able to say that he was) and that the people who support him are part of a “cult”, meanwhile the Left tells people to raise their fists in “solidarity” with BLM and that they have to “#VoteBlueNoMatterWho” among other things that paint THEM as the cult.
So there isn’t much point in me going over those things because this is something the Left always claims about Trump and something I have always pushed back against because it’s absurd. Not to mention that I have other things that I want to get to and I don't want this article to be extremely lengthy.
Moving on to the actual clips, first we have the one about the migrant children being held in shelters at the southern border:
Melania is heard saying: “All these kids that I met, they were – they are here in the shelters because they were brought by it through coyotes. The people who were trafficking. And that’s why they put them in jail. And the kids that they go in shelters and the way they take care of them, it’s, you know, they even said the kids, they say, 'wow, I will have my own bed, I will sleep on the bed, I will have a cabinet for my clothes.' It’s so sad to hear it, but they have – they didn’t have that in their own countries. They sleep on the floor. They are, you know – they are taking care nicely there. But, you know, yes, they are not with their parents, it’s sad. But you when they come here alone, or with coyotes, or illegally, you know, you need to, you need to do something. And a lot of, you know, a lot of like moms and kids, they are teaching how to do it, they go over and they say like, 'oh, we will be killed by a gang member, we will be the – you know, we will be it’s – so dangerous.' So they are allowed to stay here. Do you understand what I mean?”
Funny enough, despite the fact that Wolkoff inadvertently pushed back on the idea that Melania is against her husband, they play that off as Melania being against her husband on the issue of the children held in shelters at the southern border. At no point did Melania even slightly come off as being against her husband on this. She showed her humanity, that she was sad about the situation altogether and how the children, for the first time, had beds to themselves in a SHELTER. She blamed the coyotes who TRAFFICK the children into the U.S., not her husband’s policies regarding illegal immigration.
Matter of fact, in the next bit is when she further sides with her husband.
In a bit of a back and forth with Wolkoff (which I won’t bother writing what Wolkoff said during the call since it’s not relevant), Melania said:
“They say I’m complicit, I’m the same like him, I support him. I don’t say enough. I don’t do enough. Where I am. I put – I’m working… my ass off at Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a [expletive] about Christmas stuff and decoration, but I need to do it right?”
That’s the part where the Left was attacking her for “hating Christmas stuff and decorations” or whatever, which clearly shows that it is rather annoying to put up the Christmas decorations (something everyone who has done it can relate to. We still do it because we love Christmas, of course, but still). It’s annoying to do that in a regular house, now imagine doing that in THE WHITE HOUSE. A lot of planning has to go into it and there is a lot that needs to be covered and it’s almost entirely up to the First Lady to do this.
Which, you would think, given how much of a feminist these Leftists are, they would support Melania on this and say that it’s “beneath the office of the First Lady to decorate the White House for Christmas” or how it’s a sign of “the patriarchy holding power over the First Lady” or something, but no, they can’t even think to do that. They HAVE to side against the Trumps no matter what, so this angle is completely missed by them.
Anyway, getting back to the clip, Melania continued: “And Ok. And then I do it. And I said I’m working on Christmas planning for the Christmas. And they said, ‘oh, what about the children? They were separated.’ Give me a break. Where are they saying anything when Obama did that? I cannot go. I was trying to get the kid reunited with the mom, I didn’t have a chance, needs to go through the process and through the law.”
Cooper, completely disregarding the jab at Obama’s policy regarding putting kids in cages (much like the rest of the fake news media did when it was discovered that the photos taken of kids in cages were from 2014), attacked Melania for the comment regarding the Christmas decorations.
It’s asinine and a non-attack. Anyone who has decorated their house for Christmas knows the labor that has to be put into it. I decorate my house during Christmas and don’t have to put too much planning into how I want things to look, as long as they look fine. I can’t imagine having to decorate THE WHITE HOUSE and having to put a ton of work into just planning things out. That’s the job of the First Lady.
That Cooper and the rest of the fake news media tried to make a story out of that is really telling that they have NOTHING.
The call also discussed that infamous jacket that Melania wore during one of the visits to those shelters, where her jacket read: “I don’t care, do you?” Wolkoff brought up the jacket in the phone call, asking Melania: “So what prompted you to want to buy that jacket?”
And this is the truly great part that makes me love Melania even more: “I’m driving liberals crazy, that’s for sure. And that’s, you know, that’s what – and they deserve it. You understand.”
Brilliant! She likes to troll the Left much like her husband! Love it.
In any case, like I said, the fake news media had nothing here. Wolkoff comes off as a horrible friend, secretly recording a private conversation she had with Melania in order to profit off of her, and the fake news media comes off as unethical for playing it.
Not surprising that they played it, considering they’ve also played that Access Hollywood tape and the secret recordings made by Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, but those things all show how unethical they are. Not that we need much more evidence of this after four years of spreading the Russia hoax.
In revealing these calls, they made Melania more relatable. They displayed how saddened she was to see children whose lives were marginally BETTER BEING INSIDE A SHELTER by them merely having a bed to sleep in and a cabinet to put their clothes in. Wolkoff, during the segment, complimented (likely inadvertently) Melania for her resilience. They displayed how she has to do a tough task of decorating the White House for Christmas, which is cumbersome for anyone who has decorated their house. They showed that she understood perfectly that Obama did much worse in terms of taking care of migrant children at the border but that the fake news media never covers that fact, and they showed that she has no respect for the Left with her trolling of them, which makes her even more relatable (for many, though obviously, not all).
I hope and pray that the president and First Lady recover quickly and swiftly from the Chinese coronavirus, that they only display mild symptoms, and that they take Hydroxychloroquine and tell people how it helped them recover.
The First Family is great.

You know it’s election season when trust in the fake news media is down and the lowest it has ever been. While a strong case can be made that no one, not even liberals, ought to have trusted the fake news media ever since Trump won the 2016 presidential election, trust in the fake news media had gone up a bit following the election (though with many points where it fell drastically) and now, we are once again at an all-time low in trust for the MSM.
A new Gallup poll finds trust in the fake news media to be extremely low. Only 9% report trusting the media “a great deal” and 31% trust it “a fair amount.” Meanwhile 27% of people have “not very much” trust in the mainstream media and a full 33% have “none at all,” making the split between “trust” and “not trust” at 40%-60% respectively, a 20-point differential.
The poll also notes that the percentage of people who have no trust at all is a record high and up five points since last year.
According to the poll: “33% who do not have any confidence this year reflects a five-point uptick and is the highest reading on record. Republicans are the main drivers behind this change: 58% of them now express this view, marking a 10-point increase and the first-ever majority-leading reading.”
The poll shows that just 10% of Republicans trust the news media with just 3% have a “great deal” of trust in them. And we can clearly see who the Never Trump RINOs are in this poll, particularly with that second number. Only someone who hates Trump to the core would consider the fake news media responsible for the fabrication of numerous different hoaxes to be in any way trustworthy.
I’m less worried about that 10% because, despite the fact that it’s the lowest level on record from Gallup, as far as I could see, I can imagine some of them had sources like Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh in mind when answering this question, and such sources are largely trustworthy.
The question was framed as follows: “In general, how much trust and confidence do you have in the mass media – such as newspapers, TV and radio – when it comes to reporting the news fully, accurately and fairly – a great deal, a fair amount, not very much or none at all?”
While there are liberal radio hosts and stations, such as NPR, most Republicans will think of “radio” and will immediately picture Rush Limbaugh’s show, which to many, is a great source for news and political commentary that is trustworthy. So there is definitely the possibility that at least some of the people who said they were Republicans in the poll answered with conservative publications in mind.
At any rate, perhaps entirely unsurprisingly as well, the poll also finds that 73% of Democrats trust the fake news media, which is up 21 points since 2016. I imagine being fed the things they wanted to hear at extreme rates made them have a lot of trust in the anti-Trump media, which can explain these numbers. These Democrats largely hate Trump and love to watch and hear and read of any news story which is exclusively bad for Donald Trump (which is literally more than 90% of the time).
Gallup also noted that many hold the belief that the media is an important element to a strong democracy (we are a Republic, for one. Two, I agree but only when it is honest media), but that their opinions of the current news media do not purport to a great deal of support for it, which is rather obvious given the numbers.
When the news industry is actually fair and balanced, with reporters who will share all the details that they can without blatantly and obviously intentionally omitting important aspects that help shape the context of the news in order to attack people they don’t like, that is going to help any country with almost any system of government. Most definitely, a constitutional Republic would benefit tremendously from honest media.
But that’s not the kind of media that we have today. We have the kind of media banana republics and second- and third-world dictatorships have. We have the kind of media which will blatantly favor one side and which will lie for the government if the government is run by the people they like.
The fake news media helped sell the Iran nuclear deal to the American people. They asked no real questions of Obama, then-Secretary of State John Kerry, or anyone. They fully bought into the idea that we were giving Iran $150 BILLION for them to “build bridges and roads.” No one in the fake news media questioned it, acting as though we are Russia or China or North Korea.
The fake news media is basically state-sanctioned media whenever there is a Democrat in the White House. Such political partiality does damage to democracy and leads people astray (not that they do it by accident – it’s entirely purposeful).
In any case, Gallup’s “Bottom Line” analysis in the end says: “Americans’ confidence in the media to report the news fairly, accurately and fully has been persistently low for over a decade and shows no signs of improving, as Republicans’ and Democrats’ trust moves in opposite directions. The political polarization that grips the country is reflected in partisans’ views of the media, which are now the most divergent in Gallup’s history.”
This is also not at all surprising. When the fake news media drives, for four years, the hoax that the sitting President of the United States colluded with a foreign power to steal the 2016 election, that is bound to divide people greatly. At no point did the media have a shred of evidence to support their claims and yet talk about it as though it’s settled science – as though it’s an undeniable fact that Trump colluded with Russia. It’s nothing but b.s., so of course people who support the president aren’t exactly cool with these people.
Now, the poll itself was conducted from August 31st to September 13th, and a lot of news stories, including one debate, have occurred since then which ought to have driven confidence down a bit (not that there was a lack of fake news stories in that time period or before), but as we get closer and closer to the actual election, I hope that trust in the media further plummets.
They keep trying to tell the lie that Biden is far ahead in multiple states and that he has an even greater chance than Hillary did to win this election, which is a total load of crap. What reason do I have to believe polls conducted by the fake news media, particularly when they routinely oversample Democrats and under-sample Republicans?
They are not to be trusted by anyone, even liberals. The fake news media assured them in 2016 that that election was Hillary’s to lose and that she was all but assured to win it and look where that got them. Why would anyone, even liberals, be willing to trust what these people say, at least when it comes to who is the likely winner of the election, when they got it so wrong last time?

Whenever a president is running for re-election, something that often happens is that they stumble out of the gate in the first debate. It happened to Obama and it happened to Reagan. There were concerns that Trump, particularly given the fact that he has to contend with fighting a virus, rioters and the deep state, would be rather unprepared. But Trump is not one to make himself look the fool.
The media might say he looked like a fool or whatever else, but Trump is a showman so he knows the stage very well. However, there are some takeaways that I would like to discuss.
First of all, Trump should have done more to push back on Biden and Wallace’s lies. Chris Wallace, the “moderator”, was clearly biased (and I’ll return to this point shortly) and helped Biden as often as he could. He even brought up critical race theory as being “racial sensitivity training” which is a load of crap, and brought up the “fine people” hoax as though it wasn’t a hoax and Trump did call white supremacists and neo-Nazis “fine people.”
While there were points where Trump did push back, he surprisingly didn’t push back on the hoaxes brought up by his two opponents. Those are hoaxes that many people who watched do not think are hoaxes or do not know they are. Someone who had heard the “fine people” hoax and believes is real was not told by Trump that it was a lie.
There were many memorable and good moments for Trump, particularly in getting Biden to practically denounce the Leftist base by opposing the Green New Deal, but I feel he missed some opportunities to tell people who otherwise would not take the time to listen to him that the “fine people” hoax is, indeed, a hoax. Even if they hadn’t come to believe what Trump was saying, not acknowledging that they are hoaxes basically gave the signal to people that Trump doesn’t think they are hoaxes either. Now, I know that isn’t the case, as he has often called them hoaxes, but not pushing back on it during the debate made those hoaxes seem like they were true and that Trump couldn’t contest them.
Also, Trump needs to make a better case for his own accomplishments. He’s good at attacking and going on offense, which is a plus, but he also has a record now that he has to defend and a LOT of accomplishments that he didn’t bring up. On the issue of race, Trump should’ve brought up that after a century and a half, he’s the ONLY president to label the KKK as a terrorist organization. He did this last week, as well. Not to mention that he released his Platinum Plan to help black people who have been deeply hurt by the effects of idiot governors shutting down their states and ruining their economies.
Arguably, he also should’ve brought up that Joe Biden went into the Senate supporting segregation and his running mate’s family owned slaves.
And while he can’t bring up everything (both because there are a lot of accomplishments under his belt and because the moderator decides what topics to discuss), he can do a better job at at least tangentially bringing up things that help his case. For example, things like defeating ISIS (while also bringing up that they rose to power under the Obama/Biden administration), killing top terrorist leaders who have terrorized Americans and negotiating peace deals in the Middle East after everyone said it couldn’t be done.
So there are things that Trump can learn from this debate.
Secondly, I believe Trump came off pretty well. Some will say that he was being a “bully” by interrupting both Biden and Wallace (both of them also repeatedly tried to interrupt Trump, with Biden trying to interrupt Trump first, but he wouldn’t let them, not that that part of the story is going to be told by the fake news media), but Trump is at his best when he’s in command of the situation. Trump should not give any courtesy to Biden or any Democrat; they don’t deserve such nice things.
Interrupt, be abrasive, but not coming off as a madman losing his cool. That’s what Trump is good at and that’s what he did. Some may not like it, but that’s because many are not used to seeing an alpha male taking control, so when they see Trump doing the things that he does, they consider his mannerisms “offensive” and “unpresidential”. And by the way, one can point to many times in the past when a candidate, Republican, Democrat or otherwise, was clearly not “presidential”. Biden, in this debate, often insulted Trump, calling him a “clown” and a “racist” among other things. Trump never called Biden anything, so how is Trump unpresidential?
Al Gore repeatedly audibly sighed and rolled his eyes whenever Bush was talking, and at one point during the third debate, Gore went up to Bush while the Republican was talking, as if trying to physically intimidate him. On the flip side, Bush, in 2004, looked visibly irritated while John Kerry was speaking. In 1992, George H. W. Bush checked his watch to see how much more time there was until the debate was over as an audience member asked the candidates about the national debt and how it was affecting people’s lives.
Going back decades and centuries, in 1806, John Adams called Alexander Hamilton a “bastard brat of a Scotch peddler” because Hamilton was born out of wedlock. In 1855, Kenneth Rayner called President Franklin Pierce “the pimp of the White House,” and if you are wondering if the word “pimp” meant back then what it does now, let me tell you that yes it does; Rayner alleged Pierce facilitated sexual intercourse with prostitutes. And perhaps most hilariously, Thomas Jefferson called President John Adams a “hermaphrodite.”
These things make Trump’s statements look extremely civil and respectful in comparison, so don’t tell me Trump is “unpresidential” after the third president called the second one a “hermaphrodite.”
Trump looks weak when he doesn’t fight as hard as he does, so he needs to avoid being tame. Mr. President, Joe Biden might be senile but you need to take him behind the woodshed at every opportunity. After all, CSPAN, CNN, Telemundo and WTN showed that their viewers far preferred Trump over Biden. 60% of WTN’s viewers said they believe Trump won the debate as opposed to 40%. 66% of Telemundo’s viewers (who are almost entirely Hispanic) believe Trump won the debate as opposed to 34%. CSPAN, 53% Trump and 29% Biden (though it was a Twitter poll, so take that one with a grain of salt). CNN, three votes for Trump and only one for Biden.
People like a strong leader and strength appears wherever it needs to appear, particularly during a confrontation. So Trump should not take the advice from others that he needs to “tone it down”. That is a strategy which simply does not compute with Trump’s character and a strategy which would lead him to failure, especially now. He needs to capitalize on opportunities to destroy his opponent(s) and not let off the gas pedal. Go to the jugular.
Thirdly, and unsurprisingly, Biden lied all throughout. While Trump got him to basically denounce the GND, a mistake on the Democrat’s part, Biden is easily proven to be a liar on this. His campaign website says that he supports the GND and his literal running mate was a co-sponsor of the GND. He also claimed that he didn’t call our troops “stupid bastards” when 1) it’s on video and 2) HIS OWN CAMPAIGN confirmed that he did it.
Other than lie, he also tried to attack Trump, calling him a “clown” and a “racist”, things that hold no actual meaning. Mark Levin got it right when he said that Biden tried to pull the same crap he pulled against Paul Ryan in 2012 against Trump. Biden was a bully towards Ryan (and no one believed that was unpresidential or unvicepresidential behavior) in that debate, debating personality rather than policy. But it worked against Ryan, so he figured he should do the same to Trump. But Trump is no Paul Ryan (by a light year) and would have none of that. As a result, people remember Trump’s performance more than Biden’s, which sort of helps and hurts the both of them, but arguably helps Trump more than Biden.
Biden also dodged the first question regarding packing the Supreme Court and Wallace did nothing to try and get him to answer the question. This shows that he has no qualms about court-packing but he knows that his position is unpopular so he dodged the question entirely.
Speaking of the faux-moderator, lastly, also completely unsurprisingly, Chris Wallace showed how utterly biased against Trump he was, to the point where he was basically joking around with Biden and being pals with him at one point during the debate. This is without even mentioning that Wallace interrupted Trump far more often than he did Biden, as well as the fact that every time Trump had Biden against the ropes, like when discussing Hunter getting paid $3.5 million by the wife of a former Moscow mayor, Wallace would run interference for Biden by moving on to the next topic.
Wallace was clearly on Team Biden especially as the debate wore on. He has lost a lot of credibility with a lot of people (not me because I never believed he was anything other than a Democrat shill since 2016) and while I’m certain Paul Ryan and Donna Brazille are perfectly content with his performance in the debate, the crap that he pulled ought to get him fired. He was not an unbiased moderator at all and very early on showed that he would contend against Trump on everything.
Again, this is not surprising. Fox News is not a conservative news organization and the ONLY reason, at this point, to watch anything from that crap network is Tucker Carlson and maybe Sean Hannity when he isn’t palling around with Lindsay Graham and pretending the senator will do anything about the obviously illegal investigation against the Trump campaign.
Without those two, but particularly Carlson, Fox News’ ratings would utterly plummet. That they will almost certainly keep Wallace after that disgraceful and obviously biased performance is a testament to how unethical and incredible (as in without credibility) that network is.
I doubt this debate will move the needle for either candidate, especially as there are still two other debates scheduled (for now, at least, considering that the fake news media is “pondering” if Biden should cancel the other two debates because they KNOW he did poorly in this first one, else they would be calling for more debates), but I believe Trump will do better in those debates. He has things to learn from this one, particularly in capitalizing on destroying Biden at every turn, so I suspect he will get a bit better in the next debates.
I hope and pray that Trump destroys Biden (and whomever is the moderator if they try to run interference for Jim Crow Joe) both in the debates that are to come and in the general election. Biden deserves nothing good.

The Democrats will try to cheat this election. This is something everyone knows and has known for years. They tried to cheat in 2016 and failed, they cheated in 2018 with decent success (they flipped Orange County blue long after the polls closed because of “missing ballots” that all conveniently favored the Democrats), and will try to cheat once again in 2020, in a variety of ways.
There has been story after story of Democrat operatives getting caught and subsequently arrested for attempting to cheat, as well as story after story of pro-Trump ballots being thrown away. The Democrats are dirty cheaters who cannot hope to win elections legitimately, so they have to resort to all sorts of tricks, until they regain power once again and get rid of the electoral process that has been working in this country for nearly 250 years.
So it is absolutely unsurprising, though still entirely enraging, to see Ilhan Omar allegedly being part of a ballot harvesting operation in Minnesota.
Project Veritas recently released a video from an undercover insider, named Omar Jamal, who recorded the “pay-for-vote” scheme that Jamal Osman, Minneapolis city council member, is attempting to pull off, with help from the Ilhan Omar campaign. Newsweek added that:
“An anonymous person, identified as a former Minneapolis political worker, told Project Veritas that Omar’s campaign deputy director Ali Isse Gainey was coordinating ballot harvesting from elderly people in Charles Horn Towers, a housing complex in the city, before the Minnesota primary on August 8… The same person claimed that women and young people were paid for their ballots during the primary.”
The video also shows Liban Mohamed, brother of Jamal Osman, sitting in his car with ballots all for Osman. “Just today we got 300 for Jamal Osman. I have 300 ballots in my car right now… Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentee ballots. Look, all these are for Jamal Osman.”
The video also shows numerous people either directly shown being paid hundreds of dollars for their ballots (as well as instructions as to what to do, such as filling out personal information but leaving who to vote for blank for obvious reasons) or admitting to being paid hundreds of dollars.
In the video, it is also said by one former coworker of Ilhan Omar that Omar herself started the “pay-for-vote” operation in Minnesota, further implicating her in this entire thing. Thankfully, the Minneapolis Police Department (who won’t be defunded now, thankfully) will investigate this ballot-harvesting scheme, though who knows where that will lead?
What’s more, down south in Texas, a Biden campaign operative was caught in a ballot-harvesting operation involving mail-in ballots and absentee ballots, which one Harris County Democrat operative allegedly bragged could affect the vote of 700,000 ballots.
While that one doesn’t necessarily implicate Ilhan Omar, it further goes to show how rotten and perverse the Left is (as if you needed more evidence of that).
They have no issue with cheating whatsoever, and will go to any lengths to illegitimately win elections.
I’ve pointed out before that one thing communists often do is deflection. They accuse their opponents of doing things that they are doing. For four years, they have accused Trump of cheating in the 2016 election, stealing it away from Hillary Clinton. In those four years, we, of course, have come to discover, much to the dismay of the Left, that it was the Democrats who were cheating through foreign influence, as well as through the outgoing administration’s DOJ.
The Mueller investigation was largely launched to cover the Left’s tracks and make the story about how Trump was the one who cheated, even without any evidence to support that accusation, when in fact it was the Democrats who had cheated and still continue to cheat.
They hardly even hide it anymore. Why else do you think they would broadcast the idea that Trump might seemingly be winning by a landslide on election night but will ultimately lose in a landslide in the coming days or weeks? They fully plan to make the system so broken and cheat to such an extent that they can keep counting votes for Biden LONG after the election should have been called. They KNOW that Trump, in a completely fair and free election, would wipe the floor with Biden, so they have to come up with ways to rig the system.
And this is one of the ways in which they plan to do it: ballot-harvesting and “pay-for-vote” schemes, all of which are obviously illegal, but the Left doesn’t care one wit about the law. Even when they get caught, unless it’s so bad that they are unsalvageable, they do not pay the price for it at all.
Ilhan Omar should’ve been recalled or impeached long ago, and fresh calls for both will be made because of this, but they won’t go anywhere. Unless the GOP keeps a close eye on the ballots, the likes of Ilhan Omar will cheat in their elections and win with zero repercussions.
These people have no shame, but I hope and pray to God that they are utterly humiliated in this election season, even despite the cheating and illegal actions they are trying to do.
Lord knows that these people deserve that and far worse.

Over the weekend, The New York Times (illegally) disclosed some of the details in Trump’s tax returns over the last few decades and the biggest takeaways they had are that Trump paid just $750 to the IRS in 2016 and 2017 (he paid $1 million in 2016 and $4.2 million in 2017, but “virtually all that liability was washed away when he eventually filed, and most of the payments were rolled forward to cover potential taxes in future years”, according to The NYT, so that talking point is dishonest) and that he paid no income taxes in several years because of losses made in those years.
And the Left and media (but I repeat myself) are acting as though this is a massive new revelation that is sure to undermine Trump’s chances at re-election and especially with blue-collar workers. What a load of crap, for a few reasons.
First of all, and perhaps most importantly, we know exactly why THIS is the story and not something else: the media and the Left overhyped Trump’s tax returns for the past four years, claiming that it is where we are definitely going to find evidence of Trump colluding with Russia, through some sort of payment or whatever made out to Putin.
In the end, The New York Times reports “[The returns] report that Mr. Trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth (side note: this is the case for literally everyone who pays taxes because of the way the tax law is written. This is not an anomaly special to Trump). Nor do they reveal any previously unreported connections to Russia.”
And THAT is the biggest takeaway from this, but it deflates the Left’s narrative. For four years, Rachel Maddow and others in the media kept pointing to Trump’s tax returns as being the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow – the definitive place where Trump would be caught red-handed in making shady deals with the Kremlin relating to the 2016 election and maybe other things as well. For four years, they assured their base that once they got his tax returns, they would be able to find evidence of criminality and finally get rid of Trump.
After four years, they finally got Trump’s tax returns and they show nothing, zip, zero, nada. Nothing about paying Putin to do something about the election. Nothing about making shady deals with Russia. The best they got is Trump complying with the tax system the Washington Establishment created for years. He's taking advantage of the rules that the Bidens and Pelosis established decades ago. And they think that this somehow hurts Trump, which is hilarious.
Which brings me to the second reason this is all a load of crap: THIS ISN’T NEW! TRUMP HAS ADMITTED TO TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE TAX SYSTEM!
Here is The New York Times on October 10, 2016: “Donald Trump Acknowledges Not Paying Federal Income Taxes for Years.”
Almost four years to the date, The NYT comes back with a similar story, this time with Trump’s tax returns, and they think this is a blow to Trump?
Trump has the financial muscle to hire tax lawyers and accountants to find loopholes in the crappy tax system that globalists in Washington have created. If there was any illegality in what Trump did, THAT would be the story, but it’s not alleged. Trump didn’t skip out on paying income taxes because he’s Charlie Rangel or something. He didn’t evade paying taxes. He took advantage of loopholes that made it so he didn’t have to pay taxes.
It’s perfectly legitimate and, if anything, praiseworthy. Taxation is theft, the IRS are crooks, and paying the government the least amount of money necessary is pretty patriotic. If anything, this exposes the liabilities of the current tax system: the rich people have the muscle to find loopholes to avoid unnecessarily paying taxes while the little guy cannot do that and will often pay more than he has to.
Do you really think Trump is the only rich guy to take these sorts of advantages? Why do you think it is that uber rich guys like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett call for higher income taxes for the rich, but oppose things like Warren’s wealth tax? They can take advantage of income tax loopholes they know quite well, so they have no issue with higher income taxes (not to mention it makes them appear “selfless” in the eyes of the ignorant Leftist base). But a wealth tax goes after their net worth directly, which is a big problem for them.
Rich people can take advantage of the system the Washington Establishment has created. And somehow, Trump is the one who is rotten here for playing the game that others play? It’s somehow a massive scandal that Trump pays so little in taxes, something he has ADMITTED TO FOUR YEARS AGO?!
No, it isn’t. But the Left is strapped for stories that make Trump look awful, which is why they have to tell lies and half-truths about him. They lied about his comments regarding the military. They lied about his attitude towards handling the Chinese coronavirus. And they are lying about what Trump’s tax returns say about the guy.
Again, one of the BIGGEST reasons they are going with this angle is because they overhyped the idea that his tax returns would prove collusion with Russia and basically affirmed to their base that that’s exactly what the tax returns would show if they could get their hands on them. Now that they saw them and there is nothing about Russian collusion, they have to save face with little nothing burgers that are not even news.
Trump playing within the rules of the system to gain an advantage is something HE ACTIVELY HAS BRAGGED ABOUT. It’s not a new story, it’s not a controversy, and most importantly, it's not illegal. All it shows is that the last lead the Left had to “finding” Russian collusion regarding anything related to Trump ended up going nowhere. This is something EVERYONE should have expected because the IRS has had Trump’s tax returns on file for DECADES and would have turned them over to either the FBI or the Mueller Special Counsel if they had anything about Russian collusion.
In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Special Counsel specifically asked for the tax returns because the Leftists in the media were so sure that they would point to collusion, and ultimately found nothing. If there had been something about the Russians that proved collusion in his tax returns, trust me, we would’ve known A LONG TIME AGO.
Mueller found nothing, the corrupt FBI found nothing, the corrupt media found nothing, and they continue to find nothing. All of these years, with perhaps the most extreme vetting of a public official in the history of this country, and no one can find any sort of illegality or criminal behavior at any point?
People will talk about how “Trump is immoral” but considering how squeaky-clean the guy is, I can’t help but roll my eyes at such an “argument”. If he were as immoral as people say he is, everyone would have found something which would have led to his removal from office. At the end of the day, all the Left had was a phone call made to Ukraine which passingly touched on Hunter Biden and the Democrats went ballistic, opting to impeach him in an effort to save Biden’s and Obama’s behinds. It was an entirely partisan effort with only one GOP traitor, the most expected one of them all, joining the Democrats in voting to remove Trump on one of the two articles of impeachment the Left ultimately put forth, neither of which had anything to do with the phone call or Ukraine.
A false basis for an impeachment is all they had because Trump is not immoral (not to say he’s free of sin, what I mean is that he’s not the immoral demon that the Left has made him out to be) and has not committed any crimes that anyone can reasonably point to.
The Left says he’s corrupt but in the past week, we have found that he legally played within the boundaries of the system (again, he’s bragged about doing this) and that Hunter Biden received millions of dollars from the wife of a former mayor of Moscow (among other large payments).
And yet, the former is the story? I shouldn’t be so surprised, to be frank. The Left had to try and cover Biden’s behind and simply not covering the Hunter Biden story wouldn’t have been enough (and I think this is another big reason for this NYT story, apart from trying to save face about the contents of the tax returns). They have to try and go on the offensive, particularly as the election draws near, so they push out a nothing burger story that will be the center of everyone’s attention over the real story of the corrupt business dealings of the Bidens.
This, among many other reasons, is why the fake news media is the enemy of the people.

“While evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

We are less than 40 days away from the 2020 presidential election, but even today, we are still finding out new things relating to the corrupt Mueller probe and the attitude of many (though not all) who were a part of said probe.
Well, I say “new” things rather liberally here. They are not new things, but more like new details that were previously unknown. We all knew perfectly well that the Mueller team’s primary objective was to just “get Trump” as one FBI agent suggested. The way it was formed was more akin to how investigators in a banana republic work as opposed to a constitutional republic.
Time and time again, I have pointed out that the Mueller team was not given a particular crime to investigate, but rather, were given a target to investigate to see what crimes were possibly committed. Actual, legitimate investigators look into crimes to find the suspect(s); they don’t look at the suspect(s) to find the crime.
Lo and behold, that concept is further reinforced by an FBI agent who was a part of Crossfire Hurricane, and Crossfire Razor, which specifically investigated Gen. Michael Flynn.
During an interview with U.S. attorney Jeffrey Jensen, who is at the head of a DOJ review of the case against Flynn, FBI agent William Barnett noted that “he saw little reason to investigate Michael Flynn and that he believed that members of the special counsel’s team prosecuted the former national security adviser in order to ‘get Trump’,” reported The Daily Caller, who reported on a recently released memo.
The memo reads: “BARNETT thought the TRUMP Campaign may have been aware the Russians were attempting to impact the election, but that was far different from the TRUMP Campaign and the Russians having a deal and/or working together ‘quid pro quo,’”
The memo also notes that Barnett believed there was little reason to carry an investigation into General Flynn, and once theories of collusion began to float around, Barnett told Jensen that such a theory was “opaque” with no real evidence to suggest illegality.
Barnett mentioned that one basis for the investigation into Flynn was a speech that the former General had given in Moscow which was hosted by Russian news outlet RT back in December of 2015, in which Flynn was seated right next to President Vladimir Putin. The FBI agent said that he believed such a trip was “ill-advised” on Flynn’s part, but that there was nothing to suggest that he had committed any criminal acts.
The memo specifically pointed out that “BARNETT did not understand the point of the investigation.”
Interestingly, on the day of the election, Nov. 8, 2016, specifically at 5:42 p.m., Barnett wrote in a message to colleagues that FBI officials ordered Crossfire Razor to be shut down. However, the FBI heads changed their minds when it became clear that Trump had won, and the investigation remained ongoing.
I say this is interesting because it shows just how corrupt and perverse these people are. Had Hillary been an actually decent candidate and won, the FBI would have dropped their investigation into Flynn. They had nothing and at no point did they have anything that showed criminality and a reason to continue to investigate the guy. The ONLY reason they didn’t drop the matter is because Trump won and would subsequently name Flynn to a cabinet position.
Again, they had nothing and at no point did they get anything. They thought they might have gotten something following the revelation of Flynn’s call with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak, but that had nothing either and yet, they still kept on going.
Of course, eventually, they pressured Flynn enough (aka threatening to send his son to jail) to get him to plead guilty to lying during an interview with the FBI at the White House (an interview that Flynn did not think he could get into trouble for the things he said and for which he did not have a lawyer present. Not to mention the FBI agents interviewing him never suggested it was an official interrogation and Comey even admitted he did not think Flynn lied in that interview, only that he misremembered some things, but I digress) and now, Flynn is fighting against the Deep State which has ruined his life and is still in pursuit of him.
By the way, the only reason we even know about this memo, and the only reason it exists, is because the Flynn case is still being pursued not by the DOJ but by a corrupt judge seeking to destroy Flynn for political reasons. That memo was written because of the attorneys looking into the Flynn case, which is still ongoing. With the matter dropped, this would not have come out and we would not have gotten such a clear picture of how utterly disgusting and corrupt the Obama DOJ was (not that we needed this to know that, but the details help paint the picture better).
And God bless Agent Barnett, one of the actually decent people in the FBI (who is relatively high up, as I suspect most people in the FBI are patriotic Americans, save for the ones at the very top). The memo noted that he wanted out of Crossfire Razor, noting that it was “problematic” and even pointed out an agenda-driven investigator in the Mueller Special Counsel who goes by the name of Jeannie Rhee, who seemed to be convinced Trump colluded with Russia (and really wanted to get him and everyone in the Trump administration).
Barnett told Jensen that he believed Rhee “was obsessed with Flynn and Russia and she had an agenda.” Not even a little bit surprising, but it is interesting to see that not everyone in the Mueller investigation was on the same boat about trying to destroy Trump. It was easy to assume every last one of them was on that counsel because they were in agreement that they would look into whatever they could to charge Trump with something and get him kicked out of office, but it seems that at least one of them was reasonable enough to recognize that there wasn’t much out there to suggest that Trump colluded with Russia.
The Obama administration is easily the most corrupt administration this country has seen, at least as far as I can tell. It worked to undermine, at every step, the incoming Trump administration and sought to make irrelevant the results of the 2016 election. To them, we, the People, should never have been able to elect Donald Trump as President of the United States. We were supposed to pick Hillary and continue on with their evil dominion over us. We never were supposed to have an actual say as to who inhabits the White House.
Unlikely as it is, I do hope and pray that before Trump leaves office for good (in 2025), that all of these evil bastards are sentenced for their criminal acts. What they committed was treason against the United States. They ought to serve the due punishment for such a crime.
But for now, let’s focus on winning 2020 and ensuring that another remnant of that corrupt Obama administration does not get the chance to set foot in the White House as POTUS.
