  1. Ahhhh…..

    So it seems I was mistaken. The 25th Ammendment move by Pelosi isn’t to go after Trump. It’s to bump Old Joe out muy pronto. 🙂

    “Here’s What Keith Olbermann Wants Done to Trump and His Supporters if Dems Win in November”

    “If Democrats win in November, they already vow to destroy one branch of government and transform the U.S. Senate into another House of Representatives, where a simple majority rules and “fickleness and passion” carry the day, to quote James Madison. Predicting a Bolshevik-style victory for the Democrats, Keith Olbermann quit his job at ESPN and made a quiet return this month to political commentary on his YouTube channel. In a classic Olbermann deranged rant, the former MSNBC host breathed fire and brimstone at President Trump and all of his supporters, who Olbermann wants “prosecuted, convicted, and removed” from society.

    “Trump can be and must be expunged,” Olbermann begins. “The hate he has triggered, the pandora’s box he has opened — they will not be so easily destroyed. So, let us brace ourselves. The task is twofold. The terrorist Trump must be defeated, must be destroyed, must be devoured at the ballot box.”

    Ok, a little dark and a little extra but nothing too out of the ordinary for Trump-deranged media. But then Olbermann describes what he and the Bolsheviks want done to Trump and his supporters once Democrats revolutionize the government.

    “And then he, and his enablers, and his supporters, and his collaborators, and the Mike Lees, and the William Barrs, and the Sean Hannities, and the Mike Pences, and the Rudy Guilianis, and the Kyle Rittenhouses, and the Amy Coney Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society while we try to rebuild it and rebuild the world Trump has nearly destroyed by turning it over to a virus,” Olberman ranted.”

  4. Just a reminder, vote fraud is a myth.

    https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/10/voter-fraud-in-minnesota-an-update.php

    “We have written here, here, here, here, and here about Project Veritas’s explosive video series on voter fraud in Minnesota’s Somali community, and the effort by liberal press outlets in the Twin Cities to suppress that report. Veritas’s primary contact inside the Somali community is Omar Jamal, who is a full-time employee of the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department and a former member of the Somali mission to the United Nations.

    A local television station, Fox 9, published a report on the Veritas videos that was essentially a smear. That report has blown up in the face of reporter Tom Lyden, who produced it. Lyden simply took the principal miscreant seen in one of the Veritas videos, a ballot harvester named Liban, and tried to turn him into a hero. On Fox 9, Liban said that he lied in his own Snapchat video when he said that he had illegally harvested 300 ballots on behalf of a DFL candidate, when in fact he had illegally harvested only 20. A great defense! Lyden also published Liban’s unsupported assertion that Omar Jamal had offered him $10,000 as though it were a fact, notwithstanding that it came from an admitted criminal and liar. Further, Lyden claimed that Jamal himself had recanted his story. This was apparently based on a misunderstanding of something that Jamal said in Somali. I have met with Omar Jamal, and I can assure you that he has recanted nothing.

    A number of people are continuing to work on the story, and we will see how many additional witnesses will come forward to testify to the corruption that is going on in Minnesota elections. The FBI, too, is said to be investigating. Notwithstanding the efforts of news outlets like the Star Tribune and Fox 9, I doubt that a lid can be kept on this story. I understand, too, that Project Veritas is contemplating defamation lawsuits against the Star Tribune, Fox 9, and perhaps others.”

    And that goes for Putin and Newsweek. 🙂

    “Putin Says He Wants to Work With Biden, Claims ‘Shared Values’ Between Democrats and Communism”

    “Russian President Vladimir Putin has attempted to mark a positive resemblance between Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Soviet communists in a wide-ranging interview with the Rossiya TV channel, released Wednesday as the 2020 vice presidential candidates prepared to debate.

    The president said the Kremlin would be open to working with whoever sits in the Oval Office in 2021, despite U.S. intelligence reports indicating that Russia is trying to undermine Biden in the same way it did Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    But Putin linked Biden to communist ideology during the interview. While Putin—a former party member, KGB colonel and intelligence operative—made the comparison in positive terms, his comment lines up with GOP talking points about the Biden-Kamala Harris ticket. Trump and his allies have tried to frame their opponents proposing a far-left, extremist platform dictated by the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

    “The Democratic Party is traditionally closer to the so-called liberal values, closer to social democratic ideas,” Putin said. “And it was from the social democratic environment that the Communist Party evolved.””

    “Being pro-Trump has caused me more grief than being Osama bin Laden’s niece”

    Sad.

    “IT’S EASIER TO BE A BIN LADIN THAN A CONSERVATIVE

    This column in the Spectator is a breath of fresh air in the bizarre moment in history that we occupy. It is written by Osama bin Laden’s niece, Noor bin Ladin. Noor bin Ladin loves America:

    Americans are, in my experience, the warmest, most kind-hearted and open-minded people in the world. I have found this to be true for my whole life, despite being the niece of Osama bin Laden and sharing the same last name (albeit spelled slightly differently — bin Ladin is the original translation). Americans base their judgment on the content of someone’s character and actions, not on the color of their skin — or their last name.

    And all this time I thought we were deplorable racists!

    This was reaffirmed last month, after I voiced my love for America and support for President Trump. The response to ‘My Letter to America’ has been overwhelmingly wonderful, and I am most thankful to all those who took the time to read it and send kind messages, including Spectator readers. But in my private life, I have lost a few so-called friends for backing Donald Trump over the past five years. Coming out publicly was a step too far for some, and the vitriol I received for stating my political beliefs revealed unflattering sides to certain characters. From a sociological standpoint, it is quite interesting that in some elitist circles being pro-Trump has caused me more grief than carrying the name bin Ladin.

    Noor bin Ladin articulates clearly and sensibly why she supports President Trump:

    And why do I support Donald Trump? Look at his record. He has stood up to China, kept America out of new wars, solidified ties with Israel, overturned the disastrous Iran deal and obliterated Isis. Domestically, he removed handicapping regulations to American economic growth, rebuilt a depleted military, brought back manufacturing and revamped dying industries by renegotiating trade deals and cutting taxes; he has achieved energy independence, curbed immigration — all of which contributed to setting record unemployment rates. He has tackled neglected issues such as human trafficking and unjust incarceration — and given America a chance at restoring her principles, pride, independence and true place in the world as beacon of liberty and hope for all.”

    “Poll: The Shy Trump Vote Is Bigger This Year…And Who Falls Into This Category Should Terrify Democrats”

    “I’ll say it again, folks. The polling is screwed. It’s skewed. It’s a mess. Either we’re right to be highly skeptical and Trump wins an Electoral College landslide, or the pollsters are right and we’re heading for Armageddon come Election Day. Still, the oversampling of Democrats, college-educated voters, and suburban Republicans hostile to Trump should bring a ton of scrutiny. The reluctance for some of these clown firms to switch to likely voter samples is also suspect. We’re not going to have a 2008 or 2012 electorate. For starters, a new Hill-Harris poll noted that young Americans are not excited about this election at all. They’re not planning on voting. Gallup reportedly said that youth interest in voting this cycle hit its lowest levels since 2000. That’s in keeping with the results from Democracy Institute’s Patrick Basham, whose polling data, which has been mentioned in The Washington Times and Forbes, suggests there will be 1 million fewer young people voting this cycle.”

  8. “I Didn’t Vote For Trump In 2016, But I’d Crawl Over Broken Glass To Vote For Him Now”

    https://thefederalist.com/2020/10/09/i-didnt-vote-for-trump-in-2016-but-id-crawl-over-broken-glass-to-vote-for-him-now/

    “I don’t care about the tone of his tweets nor if his opponents think he’s rude. I’ve seen that he is a patriot who genuinely loves the United States of America and its people.”

    “Even though I had voted for every Republican presidential candidate since 1980, I didn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016.

    Many Republican nominees had been huge disappointments to me, and I wasn’t going to vote for yet another GOP candidate I thought would betray my trust. I couldn’t imagine Trump as a genuine conservative who would champion limited government, respect individual freedom and liberty, and protect the unborn — but was I ever wrong. Although I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016, I would crawl over broken glass to vote for him in 2020.

    In 2016, I was convinced Trump was just another New York liberal. On election night, however, I smiled. I was happy that at least Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be president, and I suspected that the next four years with Trump would at least be entertaining.

    The primary reason I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 was that I didn’t believe him. I didn’t trust that he would be pro-life, a non-negotiable issue for me. His bluster and bravado didn’t appeal to me. I took him literally but not seriously, in contrast to his supporters who took him seriously but not literally (credit to Peter Thiel for identifying this significant distinction).

    By the time Trump took office, I was willing to give him a chance. He was the president, after all, and deserved the opportunity to prove himself. During the first year of his presidency, I was impressed by his commitment to keeping his campaign promises, unlike most politicians. By the end of 2017, I classified myself as a Trump supporter because of what he had already done as president.

    Trump’s list of first-term accomplishments has been truly impressive:”

    Building the strongest U.S. economy in my lifetime through historic business and personal tax cuts, resulting in millions of jobs created and record-low unemployment
    Cutting federal government regulations that had a stranglehold on American business innovators and entrepreneurs
    Confronting China’s trade abuses and negotiating fair trade deals with Canada, Mexico, South Korea, and Japan
    Eliminating the Obamacare individual mandate
    Rebuilding our military through investments in our defense capabilities as well as securing the largest military pay raise in a decade
    Nominating and confirming more solid conservative circuit court judges than any other first-term administration
    Nominating and fighting for the confirmation of two originalists, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court and then nominating Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy left by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
    Moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and then brokering the Abraham Accords peace deal between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain
    Consistently fighting Democrats to build the wall to secure our southern border, reinforcing and repairing hundreds of miles, with more construction on the way

    “This is just a brief summary of the Trump administration’s accomplishments. In addition, Trump has been the most pro-life president in U.S. history. He has promoted a culture of life in his domestic policies, by supporting pro-life pregnancy centers, creating the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, supporting health workers’ conscience rights, and working to defund Planned Parenthood.”

  10. Not certain how far my logic extends – but, the above comments concerning the 25th Amendment push by Nancy Pelosi, positing that Joe Bidden could have the shortest presidency in US history, seem to indicate that getting to a Harris presidency is her end-game. I wouldn’t put it past Nancy to have visions of herself sitting in the Oval office.

    “Biden Attempts to Hide Court Packing Stance With Gaslighting Lies

    “The only court packing going on right now is going on with the Republicans,” Biden falsely claims.”

    “During the first presidential debate, Joe Biden refused to answer whether or not he supports packing the Supreme Court, and during the vice presidential debate, Kamala Harris also refused to answer this question.

    The question has become a thorn in Biden’s side, and although he attempted to remove it by saying we’ll find out where he stands on court packing “when the election is over,” it didn’t work. Predictably. While the media is willing to run cover for Biden on his racist comments and many flip-flops, even they can’t ignore something as significant as court packing.

    Adding additional seats to the Supreme Court in order to ensure a Democrat advantage is an enormous issue, and one that Biden will not be able to dodge . . . as he is quickly finding out.

    On Saturday, a reporter asked Biden if voters deserved to know where he stands on court packing, and he responded, “No, they don’t.””

    “Notice he starts out by saying that the only people asking about this issue must be Republicans. He seems to be assuming that no Democrats anywhere would be against his packing the Supreme Court. Obviously, that’s not the case, though, given that many on the left, including socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), reject court packing.

    Buried in this rejection of the American voters’ right to know where he stands on the issue of adding seats to the Supreme Court to ensure a Democrat majority, Biden also attempts to turn the discussion to President Trump, whom he falsely accuses of “packing” the court by lawfully nominating Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court seat left vacant upon the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    Biden also claims, utterly falsely, that it’s “not constitutional” for a sitting president to fill a Supreme court vacancy during an election year. An argument even Democrat leaders aren’t making (because it’s untrue).”
