  1. No there, there.

    “VP Debate Verdict: Kamala Harris showed there’s still no there, there

    Harris tried to laugh and giggle her way through the debate. She had some canned one-liners, but showed that her knowledge still is a mile wide, and an inch deep.”

  2. Not able/not ready 2020.

    That’s the Dem ticket in a nut shell.

    “Joe Biden and Donald Trump are the oldest men ever to run for president of the United States. Especially given President Trump’s recent COVID infection, and the former vice president’s frequent mental lapses, voters should be paying close attention to their running mates.

    They had an opportunity to do just that during the first and only vice presidential debate, held in Salt Lake City, when Vice President Mike Pence squared off against Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Joe Biden’s second-in-command.

    After the raucous and disappointing head-to-head between Trump and Biden a week earlier, the V.P. contest came off as infinitely more civilized, but at times equally frustrating to viewers.

    In particular, it was annoying that Harris dodged significant questions, like whether she and Biden agree with Democrats calling to pack the Supreme Court. Like Biden, she simply refuses to answer the question, an important one to voters.

    In fairness, both candidates were evasive at times, but Pence has been in the public eye longer than his rival. We have a good idea where he stands on most questions, while Harris has skittered back and forth on issues like the Green New Deal, “Medicare-for-all” and law and order, bending with the politics of the moment.

    We know Pence; we do not know Harris 2020.”

  4. Dems continue to hold up relief for Americans and businesses so they can get a bailout for their prior economic malfeasance. Trump says no way. He’s offered to sign stand alone bills for another stimulus check for Americans, more help for business, and a half a dozen other things. Dems insist on a whole package that includes aid for their malfeasance.

    “Trump breaks off negotiations over stimulus after Pelosi demanded “$2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19”

    “I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business.”

    “Since the start of the coronavirus, Nancy Pelosi repeatedly has held monetary relief for businesses and individuals hostage to her demands for non-coronavirus objectives, such as voting changes and bailouts of Democrat states and cities.

    That hostage taking delayed the Paycheck Protection Plan twice.

    Pelosi has been continuing the strategy, and Trump newly energized after his release from the hospital, just broke off negotiations:

    Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19. We made a very generous offer of $1.6 Trillion Dollars and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith. I am rejecting their…

  5. This clown has some ‘splainin’ to do.

    “Army Reserve: We’re Opening An Investigation Into Cunningham; Mistress’ Husband Demands Cunningham Withdraw”

    “Earlier, Jazz wondered whether Cal Cunningham could tip the balance of the Senate to Democrats. WRAL now reports that the Army Reserve might end up tipping a balance or two as well. Cunningham serves as an officer in the reserve, and any extramarital shenanigans falls into military jurisdiction — and could result in a potential court-martial:

    Wednesday morning, the Army Reserve confirmed to WRAL that it has opened an investigation into Cunningham.

    “The Army Reserve is investigating the matters involving Lt. Col. James Cunningham. As such, we are unable to provide further details at this time,” said Simon B. Flake, chief of media relations and public information for the Army Reserve Strategic Communications.

    It’s unclear why the Army Reserve launched an investigation. NationalFile.com reported last week that Guzman Todd is married to a service member.

    That’s not the only bad news coming from the military, either. The husband of Arlene Guzman Todd wants Cunningham out of the race, citing his betrayal of a “fellow junior officer and veteran.” Jeremy Todd wants the Army Reserve investigation as well, although Todd also says some of the third-party texts that have subsequently been published are not genuine. “I’ve seen the real ones,” he told the News & Observer:

    Jeremy Todd is an Army veteran who served 19-plus years and severely injured his spine during a paratrooper proficiency jump several years ago. His wife, Arlene Guzman Todd, has confirmed she had an intimate relationship with Cunningham after the candidate’s campaign confirmed the authenticity of suggestive text messages between the two.

    “Mr. Cunningham chose to repeatedly engage in activities that would hurt his family and a fellow junior officer and veteran,” Jeremy Todd said in a statement Wednesday to The News & Observer.

    “If elected, I can only imagine how misplaced his judgment would be for the people he’s charged to represent,” Todd said. “I firmly believe Mr. Cunningham should drop out of the Senate race and ask that his behavior and actions be reviewed under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.”

    That’s gonna sting, especially combined with the Army’s announcement. It’s not at all “unclear” why the military opened this investigation or why Todd is demanding it, either. As a member of the Army Reserve, he has to obey the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Adultery is explicitly forbidden to all military members in Article 134 and can result in detention and a dishonorable discharge. “

    “Election Concerns Grow In Bergen County, N.J. After Dozens Of Mail-In Ballots Found Discarded In Dumpster”

    “The U.S. Postal Service inspector general is investigating after blank election ballots were found among hundreds of pieces of mail in a New Jersey dumpster.

    And that’s not the only thing causing concern.

    “To have that all go in the trash like that was, in my mind, really ridiculous,” Howard Dinger told CBS2’s Ali Bauman on Tuesday night.

    Dinger said he was throwing some trash out in a North Arlington dumpster on Friday afternoon when under the lid he found piles of unopened mail, including dozens of blank mail-in ballots.

    “The ballots are the ballots. The election is the election. It is what it is. But these people have legal notices and checks and God knows what they’re expecting,” Dinger said.

    North Arlington police brought in the USPS police, which collected all the mail that was found and said the mail has since been correctly delivered.

    “I said, man, this thing is soaking wet. It must’ve been out in water, in pond or something,” West Orange resident Julian Williams said.

    Williams’ election ballot was among the discarded. He said he received his two days later.

    “I couldn’t believe it. I thought that the security as far as the mail system and stuff like that was better than that. I didn’t think anybody would take something and throw it by a dumpster or anything like that, especially since it’s from the government,” Williams said.

    This isn’t the only concern in Bergen County.

    Nearly 7,000 Teaneck voters received mail-in ballots Monday with the wrong Congressional candidate. The county clerk said it was due to a computer mis-programming and they will be getting new ballots.”

  7. Now that the recent declassifications have shown more bad actors and conduct at the FBI, McCabe is suddenly too worried about Covid 19 to testify. He’s just pulling a Brennan.

    ““Mr. McCabe is willing, able, and eager to testify in person about Crossfire Hurricane at any time in the future when it is safe to do so.””

    Another Deep Stater trying to run out the clock and for a Trump loss so this all goes away.

    “Andrew McCabe Using Coronavirus Fears to Escape Testifying in Russia Investigation”

    “Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI embroiled in the Russia collusion hoax of the 2016 election, was slated to testify before Congress this week as part of the ongoing investigation into the origins of the FBI probe.

    He is now refusing to do so based on the threat of Coronavirus. Yet he won’t even testify remotely.

    This is absurd.

    Professor Jonathan Turley writes:

    McCabe: I Will Not Testify Out of Fear For My Health … Even Remotely

    Former FBI Deputy Director (and CNN contributor) Andrew McCabe has long said that he was willing to answer questions under oath about his controversial actions in the Russian investigation. He was scheduled to do so on Tuesday, but he now has refused — citing the infection of three senators with Covid-19. However, McCabe also refuses to testify remotely as did both former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. He simply says that “fairness” dictates that he not testify at all. The basis for his refusal to appear remotely is utterly and almost comically absurd.

    It is hard to see the letter as anything other than a mocking refusal not to go under oath. McCabe knows that the Democrats may retake the Senate and the White House. At that point, Democratic senators are expected to shutdown all continuing investigations related to McCabe and misconduct in the Russian investigation. The problem is that recent disclosures have magnified concerns of serious conduct in the Russian investigation and, in the last few months, Comey, Yates, and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said that they would not have signed off on the Page application if they knew then what they know today. Rosenstein called for further investigation into FBI misconduct, including matters that would relate to McCabe. Rosenstein expressly slammed McCabe in his testimony.

    McCabe’s lawyer, Michael R. Bromwich McCabe is “willing, able, and eager to testify in person” about the FBI’s Russia investigation “when it is safe to do so.”

    McCabe’s attorney suggested that testifying remotely just wouldn’t be fair.”

  8. Quick, someone remind me how classy and above it all she is. Oh wait, that’s right, she never was. That was just the fawning press’ opinion.

    https://spectator.org/michelle-obama-racist-joe-biden/

    “Are Americans Tired of Being Called ‘Racist’ Yet?
    Michelle Obama makes her “closing argument” for Biden.”

    “What is “racism,” and why do Democrats so relentlessly accuse Americans of it? It is necessary to put scare-quotes around “racism” nowadays, because the word has been quite nearly stripped of meaning by its constant overuse as a political epithet. Depending on the context, sometimes “racist” is merely a synonym for white person (which seems to be the message of Robin DiAngelo and other proponents of Critical Race Theory), but during election season in the United States, it seems that “racist” is synonymous with Republican.

    It is this purely partisan definition of “racist” that former First Lady Michelle Obama demonstrated this week in a remarkable 26-minute video campaign ad for Joe Biden. Mrs. Obama heaped praise on the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement as “an overwhelmingly peaceful movement for racial solidarity.” In fact, BLM is an avowedly Marxist revolutionary organization that has inspired the murder of police officers and incited violent riots nationwide. Of course, anyone who points out this fact is immediately subject to denunciation as a “racist,” and the purpose of Mrs. Obama’s video was to point the finger at President Trump. By criticizing BLM’s organized spree of vandalism, looting and arson, Trump was “stoking fears about black and brown Americans,” Mrs. Obama earnestly declared:

    Only a tiny fraction of demonstrations have had any violence at all. So what the president is doing is, once again, patently false. It’s morally wrong and yes, it is racist, but that doesn’t mean it won’t work…. Racism, fear, division, these are powerful weapons and they can destroy this nation if we don’t deal with them head on.

    The “tiny fraction” of BLM-inspired riots that Mrs. Obama dismisses as a trivial statistic inflicted billions of dollars of damage, mostly on small businesses in minority neighborhoods, but you are “racist” — guilty of “stoking fears” — if you express concern about this terroristic campaign of destructive violence. Trump is “racist,” according to Mrs. Obama, and everyone who votes for Trump is “racist.” Thus, what the former First Lady called her “Closing Argument” for the Biden campaign can be summarized simply: Democrats, good; Republicans, racist.

    While making the accusation of racism a partisan weapon, Democrats seek to silence any honest discussion of the problems affecting black Americans. After all, if white “racism” is the one-size-fits-all explanation for these problems, and if the Republican Party is nothing but the organized political expression of “racism,” then the solution for whatever ails the black community is very simple: Vote Democrat.

    This is exactly the message Mrs. Obama intended to convey in her nearly half-hour appeal on Biden’s behalf, with her tendentious argument intended to stigmatize all opposition to the Democratic presidential candidate: Vote for Joe, or you’re a racist. She thereby sought to turn the election into a referendum on “racism” — or “white supremacy,” “white privilege” or “white nationalism,” as the target is variously described by soi-disant progressives. No Democrat disputes the diagnosis (reiterated in the platform the party adopted at its Philadelphia convention this summer) that every problem in the country is the fault of white people, whose collective wickedness is a force of dreadful oppression. “Democrats will root out structural and systemic racism in our economy and our society,” the party platform declares, lamenting “America’s long and ongoing history of racism and disenfranchisement, of segregation and discrimination.” Furthermore, the party pledged itself to “confront white nationalist terrorism,” warning of “the growing threat from white supremacist and other right-wing terrorist groups.”

    White people are bad, being white is wrong, and only a “right-wing terrorist” would vote for Trump — such is the general sentiment expressed by the Democratic Party’s national platform. The racism of white people is “systemic,” a word repeated 10 times in the Democratic platform, beginning in the preamble, where they declare they “must” (note the imperative tone) “redress the systemic injustices that have long plagued our society.” Exactly why Democrats failed to redress these injustices at any previous point, such as during the eight years of Barack Obama’s presidency or during Biden’s more than four decades in Washington, the platform doesn’t bother to explain. Likewise, the platform’s pledge of “enacting fundamental reforms to address structural and systemic racism and entrenched income and wealth inequality in our economy and our banking system” omits any explanation of why Biden or Obama didn’t do this earlier.”

  9. Dishonest Kamala lied about Honest Abe

    https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/kamala-harris-dishonesty-on-abe-lincoln/

    “Harris claimed at the VP debate that Abraham Lincoln refused to nominate a candidate for Chief Justice in October 1864 because “Honest Abe said, it’s not the right thing to do” and wanted the people to vote first.

    Lincoln, of course, said no such thing. He sent no nominee to the Senate in October 1864 because the Senate was out of session until December. He sent a nominee the day after the session began, and Salmon P. Chase was confirmed the same day. And Lincoln wanted to dangle the nomination before Chase and several other potential candidates because he wanted them to campaign for him. Lincoln’s priority was winning the election, which was necessary to win the war — and he filled the vacancy at the first possible instant.

    Kamala Harris is simply inventing history.”

  10. President Donald Trump is hosting the Rush Limbaugh program tomorrow.
    I’ve said before, a dozen times, “I don’t like the man, but I like what he’s doing”.
    This is an example. No one would have thought of that. Here, the man has millions of contacts, thousands of which likely never heard Trump before.
    Brilliant strategy.
    I wonder if he will get paid for the “guest Host” gig.
