Back on November 23rd, a friend sent a link to an on-air Glen Beck tirade in which the political commentator, radio host and television producer almost lost control ranting about Congressional republicans’ inability or unwillingness to recapture a presidential election so obviously stolen from a national majority of voters.

While Beck’s meltdown in itself presented a very clear picture of voter frustrations, it also served as a preliminary step towards visualization of coming reaction throughout the nation. In that regard, my response to my friend follows:

Joe, Beck’s tirade lines right up with a sense or feeling I’ve had for several weeks now, as the irrational possibility of a Biden presidency firms into a probable reality the way things look right now. It’s also a certainty there’s never been public adoration, admiration or appreciation for the deeds and accomplishments of a chief executive as what’s developed between Trump and his constituents today. No president has ever consistently packed major venues with fans like a rock star, each attending by personal preference. And it’s that sense of support and togetherness that convinces me that if a Biden win, now bolstered by samples of the moronic filth he deems a potential cabinet, actually occurs a revolt will take place. I’ve no present idea of the revolution’s ultimate structure nor how or where it will germinate, but am also absolutely convinced of its coming arrival. And what’s powerfully important about the future revolt is that it currently comprises 73 million individuals who’ve already expressed their voting choice. Lord only knows how many more would have also voted for Trump had the media presented the truth regarding his actual poll numbers, platform or performance in office. So, what looms ahead for the nation should Biden win, is the inauguration of a totally worthless party head for the Democrats, one who’ll never gain acceptance or respect from considerably more than half of the voting public (had actual vote results been disclosed in major leftist strongholds) and will never attain support, respect or agreement from them. What’s more, the entire party Biden currently represents comes under the same umbrella, having not one member equaling Trump’s true appeal. All of which brings me back to today’s prediction of a voter revolt most assuredly arising should this leftist electoral fraud actually come to pass. Which means that, as things stand now, the nation’s ultimately facing another civil war in some very tangible, disruptive form."

And now, today December 10, an article by Rush Limbaugh, noting conservatives have very little in common with people in certain states, is raising the issue of secession.

Limbaugh made his comments on his radio show on Wednesday.

“I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,” he said. “I see more and more people asking what in the world do we have in common with the people who live in, say, New York? What is there that makes us believe that there is enough of us there to even have a chance at winning New York, especially if you’re talking about votes.

“A lot of bloggers have written extensively about how distant and separated and how much more separated our culture is becoming politically and that it can’t go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.

“I know that there’s a sizable and growing sentiment for people who believe that that is where we’re headed whether we want to or not. Whether we want to go there or not. I, myself, haven’t made up my mind. I still haven’t given up the idea that we are the majority and that all we have to do is find a way to unite and win.”

Thus, it seems predictions are occurring more frequently regarding rising probability of a cultural rift in the nation which should be paid close attention by leftist leadership. Whereas if they take a step back and face reality, even they can grasp the fact that without the intellectual, financial and commercial support of Republicans, they have no means of real-life survival as individuals.

That’s it for today folks.

This morning, the president posted a comment on Facebook reflecting what this writer feels is most likely the major consensus of opinion among the vast majority of voters across the U.S: "REPORT: Biden’s Thanksgiving Day Address gets just 1000 views online, a record low. Observers say a candidate with “80,000,000” votes would get many more online viewers. Numbers don’t lie, or add up! One America News Network."

The posting spurred thoughts of a response to a friend last week regarding a clip he'd sent in which commentator Glen Beck vented almost uncontainable vexation and frustration with the possibility of a Trump election loss. Much like Beck, who publicly aired his displeasure to a wide audience, not only does this writer agree with Beck's thoughts but also believes that there are millions upon millions of citizens sharing those conclusions, as follows in the note sent:

"Joe, Beck’s tirade lines right up with a sense or feeling held for several weeks now, as the irrational possibility of a Biden presidency firms into perhaps a tangible reality. It’s also a certainty there’s never been public adoration, admiration or appreciation for the deeds and accomplishments of a chief executive as that developed between Trump and his constituents today. No president has ever consistently packed major venues with fans like a rock star, each attending by personal preference. And it’s that sense of support and togetherness that convinces me should Biden actually win, now compounded by samples of the moronic filth he deems a potential cabinet, a revolt will take place. I’ve no present idea of the revolution’s ultimate structure nor how or where it will germinate, but am also absolutely convinced of its coming arrival. And what’s powerfully important about the future revolt is that it currently comprises 73 million individuals who’ve already expressed their voting choice. Lord only knows how many more would have also voted for Trump had the media presented the truth regarding his actual poll numbers, platform or performance in office. 

"So, what looms ahead for the nation should Biden win, is the inauguration of a totally worthless party head for the Democrats, one who’ll never gain acceptance or respect from considerably more than half of the voting public (had actual vote results been disclosed in major leftist strongholds) and will never attain support, respect or agreement among them. What’s more, the entire party Biden currently heads comes under the same umbrella, having not one member equaling Trump’s true appeal. All of which brings me back to today’s prediction of a voter revolt most assuredly arising should this leftist electoral fraud actually come to pass. Which means that, as things stand now, the nation’s ultimately facing another civil war in some very tangible, disruptive form."

Now that several more days of reporting has disclosed an increasing probability of voter fraud, very likely aided and abetted by major media suppression of vote count alteration facilitated by vote switching capabilities of Dominion Equipment, the odds of some form of rebellion have likely increased.

Furthering expectations of  major refusal to accept the election results are the candidate's chosen by the left for leadership, one spending 38 years in public office achieving nothing whatsoever, the other possessing not one iota of managerial success, rising only to junior United States senator from California since 2017. That total absence of accomplishment now faces comparison to that produced by one described by Patrick Buchanan today, who wrote: "Not only is Trumpism triumphant in the GOP's ideological battles, but its victory was validated in 2020. While Trump may have narrowly lost states that gave him an electoral majority in 2016, he grew the GOP presidential vote by 10 million, held the Senate and added GOP votes in the House, an almost unprecedented feat for a defeated President.

"Trump did not establish the new relationship with Russia he had promised, nor did he end the forever wars of the Mideast.

"Yet, the U.S. is closer today to the exit ramps from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Yemen.

"Can anyone believe that Bush Republicans or the "Never-Trumpers" are the future of the party when one considers the massive and visceral reaction of millions of Trump voters even to the idea of conceding his defeat in this election?

"After the dust has settled from this election, Trump's achievements will begin to be recognized.

"He cut tax rates and federal regulations and produced in his fourth year the lowest unemployment rate ever among Black Americans, women and racial and ethnic minorities.

"He remade the Supreme Court, producing a 6-3 constitutionalist majority no predecessor was able to achieve.

"He crushed ISIS in Syria and eliminated the caliphate there.

"He pulled us out of the Paris climate accord, the Iranian nuclear deal and the World Health Organization.

"His Operation Warp Speed initiative helped produce two vaccines for the worst pandemic in a century within less than a year. And he brought the Dow back up to 30,000.

A not unimpressive record, though our media elite will never concede it."

And although the huge number of Trump constituents deeply appreciate the accomplishments for their intrinsic value, what they truly wish to remain in office is the individual having the unique capabilities to produce them in the first place. 

That's it for today folks.

Election results to date show that the mainstream media’s given the presidency to Biden, while 73 million Republican voters have not. Significant work now needs be done regarding hundreds of thousands of votes apparently switched from Trump to Biden via software control systems provided by Dominion Voting Systems. 

The final outcome yet to be seen, it’s vividly apparent right now that although the Democrat party in general and Biden in particular, might ultimately attain leadership status amongst their own, it’s doubtful to occur anywhere else. The dithering Biden himself appears programmed to be the weakest “chief executive” in the nation’s history, should he actually attain a win.

At the moment, all things remaining the same, the critical question is a Senate run-off in Georgia. One candidate, Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler, ”brands herself as a political outsider – “more conservative than Atilla the Hun” – in lock-step with Trump. And that’s not expected to change much.”

“During a Savannah campaign stop in August, Loeffler said she was “the only U.S. Senator that has 100% Senate voting record with our president,” and that she was out to help him “drain the swamp.”

The other Georgian is Senator David Perdue, in office since 2014, getting 90,000 more votes than his opponent. However, since the Senate is presently deadlocked at 48-48, although Republicans were leading uncalled races in Alaska and North Carolina, Georgia could prove to be the tipping point, meaning Democrats would control the House, the Senate and the presidency with two Georgia Senate wins.

Thus, what this seemingly all boils down to is that if Trump’s recounts are successful all the rest is moot. But if by some chance, Biden obtains the White House, Senate results determine the U.S. political future. Democrat control of all three government branches portends socialism in the offing, fostering national demise similar to that of major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit and Chicago. Because one of the most valid certainties extant is that leftists either cannot or will not learn from their mistakes. Virtually assuring massive administrative failure.

However, should Republicans retain a Senate majority, a Biden presidency while becoming an annoyance, forebodes little major policy harm during the four-year hiatus until Donald Trump’s electoral return.

That’s it for today folks.

This time around, an election aftermath might well be quite different and damaging than any other in history whereas things have fundamentally changed. Among the most important characteristics of Trump voters are underlying and unifying desires for recognition by leadership of their individualism, wishes for personal freedom in decision-making along with license to pursue chosen goals and objectives unencumbered by bureaucratic overburdens.

Quite unfortunately, should the Biden/Harris pairing of unqualified incompetents actually attain positions of governance, typical yearnings of Trump advocates will be lost irrevocably at the very outset of governmental transference. According to Matt ViserSeung Min Kim and Annie Linskey in The Washington Post: "While calling for unity President-elect Joe Biden is planning to quickly sign a series of executive orders after being sworn into office on Jan. 20, immediately forecasting that the country’s politics have shifted and that his presidency will be guided by radically different priorities.

“He will rejoin the Paris climate accords, according to those close to his campaign and commitments he has made in recent months, and he will reverse President Trump’s withdrawal from the World Health Organization. He will repeal the ban on almost all travel from some Muslim-majority countries, and he will reinstate the program allowing “dreamers,” who were brought to the United States illegally as children, to remain in the country, according to people familiar with his plans.

“Although transitions of power can always include abrupt changes, the shift from Trump to Biden — from one president who sought to undermine established norms and institutions to another who has vowed to restore the established order — will be among the most startling in American history.”

While presentation of intended change is one thing, implementation is quite another, particularly wherein significant portions of those affected may not be in favor of the edictal revisions at all. An especially troublesome potentiality today, where circumstances are quite different than in the past. Unlike historical administrative transitions, there are now 70 million disappointed voters whom while spread everywhere across the nation, remain instantaneously connected electronically. And if Trump proved nothing else, huge segments, if not all, of those 70 million will quite eagerly gather in pursuit and support of their own agendas.

Therefore, it’s suggested here that Biden et al be quite careful in how quickly, if at all, current policy and direction are reprioritized whereas while the methodologies to be employed remain unknown, 70 million disappointed voters present a quite formidable mass of foes to be reckoned with. Especially if they decide to act like Democrats and begin physically tearing down targeted possessions of adversaries.

That’s it for today folks.

Although the presidential race still hangs in the balance, current results glaringly highlight a significant segment of voters deserving of their own classification of stupid. In fact, it’s quite difficult to come up with a word that properly captures the enormity of these individual’s dim-wittedness. The collection of vacuum-heads in question are the relocating leftists.

As vote tallies came in last night, particular areas gained attention in states such as Texas, Arizona, Colorado, and Florida where transplanted leftists now reside. And although relocation has always been quite common in the U.S., a somewhat different causation now exists, economic prohibition stemming from political ideology. This phenomenon occurs when costs of living rise to the extent that citizens can no longer afford residence, forcing departure. The circumstance most often arises in and around major city’s occupied by leftists with continually growing demands for government expansion, along with free, government-subsidized or lowest cost services which in turn drive taxation of all types to their maximums whereas program-financing must derive from someplace beyond government.

Typically, lower than market living costs are borne by taxation of those earning reasonable livings along with private-sector businesses and service providers. Until the point is reached where taxes themselves become unaffordable or reduce incomes and/or profits below a viability threshold, forcing departures or closures to the extent that insufficient revenue can be attained by government. That Catch-22 occurs when reductions in the qualities of life, along with prohibitive taxation compel citizens across economic strata to seek residence elsewhere.  

While the framework of the economics is very easily understandable, governments cannot possibly sustain rising costs without similarly increased revenue, it is the inability or unwillingness of leftists to grasp that basic concept that creates the ideological conundrum. Because, in keeping with today’s opening premise, any individual forced into relocation by self-caused unaffordability who upon arriving elsewhere immediately works to recreate the same governmental structure as the one just abandoned has to be at a level of stupidity that’s simply indescribable. 

That’s it for today folks.

A week to go until the presidential election, the feeling is much like déjà vu all over again. At this time back in 2016, while Bill Clinton’s wife was a slam-dunk shoo-in for the White House throughout the mainstream media, the premise was never accepted here. Daily posting’s contained facts and data showing clearly that that woman’s arrival in the Oval Office couldn’t be good in any way for the general public. In the end, logic and common sense won out as Trump prevailed in the Electoral College 304 votes to 227.

Since the mainstream medias become the public communication arm of the Democrat party, gathering data in any way negative toward Biden/Harris is extremely difficult. Much like last time around in supporting a belief regarding Trump’s reelection, pieces of today’s entry are patched and glued from several sources.    

According to Pew Research Center on October 21, 2020: “Around a third of registered voters in the U.S. (34%) identify as independents, while 33% identify as Democrats and 29% identify as Republicans, according to a Center analysis of Americans’ partisan identification based on surveys of more than 12,000 registered voters in 2018 and 2019.

“Party identification among registered voters hasn’t changed dramatically over the past 25 years, but there have been some modest shifts. One such shift is that the Democratic Party’s advantage over the Republican Party in party identification has become smaller since 2017. Of course, just because a registered voter identifies with or leans toward a particular party does not necessarily mean they will vote for a candidate of that party (or vote at all). In a study of validated voters in 2016, 5% of Democrats and Democratic leaners reported voting for Trump, and 4% of Republicans and GOP leaners reported voting for Hillary Clinton.”

Predicated on these statistics alone, Democrats obtaining a simple majority seems highly unlikely. Beyond that, Trump’s done an outstanding job in office if the unbiased truth be told which should bring him all Republican votes by default. But let’s say 10% go the other way, that still gives him 19% of the total. While 34% identify as Democrats, the party’s been hijacked by the radical left, making it quite likely there’ll be a reasonable amount of traditionalists jumping ship. Although that number may well be significantly more, let’s call it 5% bringing Trump’s total to 24%. Then comes the all-important 34% of independents and the impact of the Biden/Harris platform.

Unaffiliated voters would have to be attracted to rejoining the Paris Climate Accord that Trump withdrew from. Additionally, back in June 2019, Biden released a proposal to spend $1.7 trillion on green energy technologies over the next 10 years, with the ultimate goal of putting the US on track to eliminate net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

And then, according to Scott Walker of the Washington Times on Thursday, August 13, 2020, there are other considerations as follows:

 

·      The cost of the so-called Medicare for All exceeds $32 trillion when the national debt has grown to more than $26 trillion. To pay for their plan, Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris will raise your taxes. Their support of repealing the Trump tax cuts will lead to a tax increase for nearly every hard-working taxpayer across the nation.

 

·       Ms. Harris‘ ideas will also cost us jobs. She is a co-sponsor of the radical Green New Deal that would lead to a loss of manufacturing and agricultural jobs in states like Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

She also supports sanctuary cities and open borders and abortion on demand. "And she even said she would have a “conversation” about whether felons should be allowed to vote from prison.”

As a simple practical matter then, it would seem quite unlikely that any voter without a definitive party affiliation purpose would do themselves the kind of damage the Democrat platform portends. But let’s say only 80% of independents use their heads and vote for Trump, that gives him 27% of the total. Adding that to the 24% (19% Republican, 5% Democrat) from the major party count amounts to 51% in all.

 

In summation, while the reasons are quite different, the Democrat party appears to be in precisely the same position as last time around with Bill Clinton’s wife for a candidate. Yet, the details really won’t matter to Trump who’s going to remain in the White House.

 

That’s it for today folks.

As noted yesterday, didn’t watch the debate primarily because no reason was seen for wasting the time. And now that it’s over, the decision was justified because nothing’s changed in the presidential race whatsoever. Trump remains the most successful effective and dynamic chief executive since Lincoln and Biden’s still a worthless no-account, stumbling, bumbling socialist, soon to be criminally prosecuted for abuse of power.

As far as self-enrichment’s concerned, little doubt exists that Hunter Biden traded on his name for many years while much of the family also cashed in substantially on the senior's public office. However, it’s believed here that the stimulus for the extortion arose from the opposite direction than that presently assumed by most others. Hunter long suffered from drug problems, ending a brief attempt at a military career in his 40sHe was discharged from the Navy Reserve in February 2014 after testing positive for cocaine. Marrying Kathleen Buhle in 1993, the two divorced in 2017 after a 22-year marriage. According to the New York Post: “In divorce papers, Kathleen accused her ex of blowing family funds on drugs and prostitutes.

Although the following’s complete speculation, Hunter’s background just doesn’t sound like that of one who goes on to discover, negotiate, structure and close multi-billion dollar deals with leaders of powerful foreign nations, regardless of whatever his last name may be. It’s likely much more probable that the deals were derived and developed by the Dad who because of the office held, Vice President of the United Sates of America, needed a bagman to handle extorted cash. And who could be more trustworthy than a ne’er-do-well son with no other viable job alternatives at a level that would make him a wealthy, international executive such as board member of a corrupt Ukrainian company in an industry in which he had no prior experience?

Thus, the thought presently held is that further research by the few in media pursuing the truth will continue uncovering proof’s that the totally incompetent Biden son, like Sergeant Schultz on Hogan’s Hero’s “knew nothing,” and his VP dad orchestrated and implemented the entire extortion racket.

That’s it for today folks.

The plan for today was to once again explain that this writer has no intention of watching tonight’s presidential debate. Several factors contribute to that decision.

The candidate’s positions on significant issues well understood from the outset of both major campaigns, along with constant attention from every type of  media, make it  hard to fathom that anyone actually intending to vote still remains undecided. It also seems highly unlikely that uncertain voters, if any exist, can possibly be significantly numerous or remain isolated from exposure to perpetual promotion by party members, representatives and/or the candidates themselves.

With vast amounts of information and propaganda readily available to voters, decision-making this year could not be simpler. Trump’s held presidential office for more than three-and-a-half years, during which time people were either pleased with his performance or they weren’t. As for Biden, absolutely nothing can be directly credited as legislation due to his efforts in Congress for his 36 years of service as Delaware Senator, or the eight more spent as Obama’s Vice president.

In fact, the only factor proven to date regarding qualities undoubtedly possessed by Biden is an ingrained problem conveying the truth. That particular flaw creates another difficulty in viewing presidential debates, whereas there is no way to determine whether Biden is being honest or not. So here again, audiences already possess everything they need to know about Trump from their own observation, while Biden has virtually nothing to offer except myriad promises that may or may not be implemented as presented, if at all.

Bringing us back to today’s original premise that questions the value of debates in the first place. And questions of value most certainly exist when debates are between an unequivocally successful performer going head to head with a congenital, conscience free liar.

That’s it for today folks.

Nearing the end of this term of office, no doubts exist about passions president Trump spurs in people, adored or hated ardently with virtually no middle ground whatsoever. Yet, whatever’s felt toward the man himself, his approach to presidential tasks has introduced an altogether different, and provenly far better, path to successful goal completion.

Most importantly, every governmental action involving presidential budgeting or financing participation requires commensurate acumen for creation, analysis and/or evaluation. Meaning that appropriate capabilities must exist in whoever holds the office to properly assess any finance-related consideration. Expertise among cabinet position holders, staff members, advisors or consultants is helpful, but not enough because without appropriate knowledge themselves, there is no way for any chief officer to truly assess the value of what others may offer or suggest.

It’s the area of financial problem-solving where Trump has proven that a “business approach” generally succeeds far better than purely political decision-making or simply attempting to please the majority, regardless of which side of an issue that majority may be on. The points been made and reinforced any number of times by Trump to date through the administration’s handling of the Covid virus, border control, trade agreements such as USMCA with Canada and Mexico, China trade and now, between the United States and Brazil. Overall tax decreases along with massive removal of regulations contributed to successes as well. All of which goes to substantiate that political knowledge and experience alone cannot satisfy need for business managerial skills where the nation’s economy's involved, and certainly not enough for the presidential post. 

In effect, what the analysis establishes is that decisions made where skills are absent produce poor to totally incorrect conclusions, which could not be more damaging or potentially dangerous than at the nation’s presidential level. A skill-lacking condition is most often established when “pure” politicians rise to administratively responsible positions and/or decision-making authority by way of election to posts. One only has to think back to Iraq in foreign policy or health care under Obama, for justification of the point that where an executive decision-maker lacks appropriate evaluation capability, the odds against successful outcomes sink to virtually lowest levels.

Difficulties compound for leaders when voter bases dislike appropriate approaches or solutions to arising challenges, ordinarily refusing to support those types of offerings. Quite often, if not most, it's voter displeasure that's satisfied by pure politicians while underlying causes themselves are avoided or ignored without required attention. That circumstance is worsened when, for whatever reason, typical constituents lack required intellect, knowledge or education for proper grasp of problematical situations. Which brings us back to Mr. Trump.

Presently, the nation’s chief executive is by nature, exposure, intellect and education, perfectly attuned to addressing multi-billion-dollar transactions in every day life. As a result, appropriately analyzing costs, contractual legalities and expedience comprising bills, agreements and legislation comes as second-nature to one possessing Trump’s particular skills. But more than that, the nation’s having those capabilities in its top decision-maker now establishes just as clearly that their absence is an unquestionably disqualifying factor for holding presidential office in the future.

That’s it for today folks.

With election day less than three weeks away, The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board has finally posted Democrat cost estimates today. Selections separate each group regarding how various segments of the economy will perform.  

Bidenomics

“Overall, the authors estimate that the Biden agenda, if fully implemented, would reduce full-time equivalent employment per person by about 3%, the capital stock per person by some 15%, and real GDP per capita by more than 8%. Compared to Congressional Budget Office estimates for these variables in 2030, this means there would be 4.9 million fewer working Americans, $2.6 trillion less in GDP, and $6,500 less in median household income.

“The analytical details are especially helpful on energy costs and the “labor wedge” against hiring that have received little attention. Mr. Biden denies he supports the Green New Deal, but his plans to promote electric vehicles and phase out fossil fuels go far beyond anything Mr. Obama proposed.

“To take only one example, the electrification of most passenger cars would increase the per capita demand for electric power by 25% even as more than 70% of baseline electric power from fossil fuels would go offline. Bridging this supply-demand gulf would require enormous subsidies and far more investment and labor to achieve the same energy output. Mr. Biden’s energy plans would cut total factor productivity by 1%-2% across the entire economy.

“Mr. Biden is also proposing substantial increases in business tax rates that will raise the cost of capital. The former Vice President likes to say he’d only raise the top corporate tax rate to 28% from 21%. But so-called pass-through entities (often small businesses) employ more than 40 million Americans, and most pay taxes at the individual tax rate.

“Biden’s plan to raise personal income and payroll tax rates would push their federal rates from below 40 percent to, often, above 50 percent, and these are on top of state income taxes,” the authors write.

“Mr. Biden would also raise capital costs by phasing down bonus depreciation in the 2017 tax reform, and he’d raise labor costs by imposing the 12.4% Social Security payroll tax to income above $400,000. The $400,000 threshold isn’t indexed for inflation so it would apply to ever-more Americans as the years go by.”

In summation, ultimate costs gather to the public as follows: “The risk from Joe Biden’s policies isn’t that they will send the economy reeling right away. The problem is that they will have a long-term corrosive impact by raising the cost of capital, reducing the incentive to work and invest, and reducing productivity across the economy. Americans will pay the price in a lower standard of living than they otherwise would—and that they deserve.

Highlights from reader opinions are illustrated in the following posted comments:

Reader ron neff:

"And....the think left our of the editorial is that with millions streaming across the border unimpeded---or even welcomed by the Harris/Biden administration,  millions more Americans are out of work because of illegal immigration.   And....this is not just limited to low wage, low skilled workers.   The Chamber of Commerce and Harris/Biden will open the throttle to full speed for visas for IT and white collar employees.    Looks bad for the low end of the wage scale up thru and including middle class Americans.  Remember when TVA was importing foreign workers to replace Americans and Trump stopped it ?   Do not expect Harris/Biden to do anything similar."   

 

Reader GeorgeB Purdell:

"Here's a shorter version of the above article.
We are recovering, but unevenly. A broader recovery will not occur until we get a vaccine. 
Biden is lying now about the economy, and is planning to take full credit for the ongoing recover as soon as he is sworn in.
The negative impacts on incentive, growth, employment, and investment of a Biden economic plan will be swept under the rug by a compliant and lying media. Until it can't.
Economics can't be denied. Eventually the deficit spending, entitlements, political lying, and media pretending will catch up with us.
That means the path out of a Biden/Harris socialist regime is a wrenching depression and currency devaluation.
Biden/Harris will use every trick to kick the can down the road, maximizing the inevitable pain."

All of which illustrates that no matter how Biden policies become implemented, the only way their rising costs can be covered is ultimately to be collected from the tax-paying lower and middle class. Meaning that the nation’s economy will certainly be caused to undoubtedly sink, no matter what.

That’s it for today folk.

We're now three weeks away from what could be the most dramatic change in governmental policy since Lincoln's election in 1860. Going into that contest, the issue of slavery had heated the nation to the boiling point. A significant question then was, how were the political parties going to maintain unity in the midst of such intense sectional conflict? 

At the time, the slavery dichotomy was crystal clear, making voter choice far simpler than today where platform differences appear more subtle yet will position the nation significantly left or right. In trying to find simplified comparisons of major party differences existing today, the following offering was found sent by a friend back in 2015.     

FATHER-DAUGHTER TALK

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college.  Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth.

She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative, a feeling she openly expressed.  Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.   

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs.

The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father.

He responded by asking how she was doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew.  She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey doing?"   

She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA.  She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast.  She's always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because she's too hung over."   

Her father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0.  That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."   

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back, "That's a crazy idea, how would that be fair!  I've worked really hard for my grades!  I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work!  Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree.  She played while I worked my tail off!"   

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the conservative side of the fence."

If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!  

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.  If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.  

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.  If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.  

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.  A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.  

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.  Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.  

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.  A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and Jesus silenced.  

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.  

If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.  A liberal will delete it because he's "offended."

Well, I forwarded it to you.  Your call.

That's it for today folks.

Inasmuch as timing is everything, a growing question is whether recent release of evidence of abuse of power, along with disclosures of other suspicious activities, by candidate Biden are happenstance or an orchestrated scheme by Republican adversaries. Is this irreparably negative information being released this close to election day because it was just uncovered or has it been withheld until the most advantageous moment for Donald Trump?

In truth, whatever the reason may be, information now exposed openly raises significant question as to the honesty, integrity and underlying intentions of Biden himself as employment of family members for seemingly personal gain is made public. 

One of the best summaries of questionable activities comes from Dan Reynolds and Naomi Fisher in a Ventura County California’s Citizen’s Journal editorial today, October 15, 2020, who write:

Joe Biden has been in the political arena for over thirty years. He has been praised for his devotion to us, the citizens and residents of our United States. And he has consistently claimed he is “for the people”.

“However, Joe Biden’s actual attitude became public when Joe’s Son, Hunter Biden was given a half a million dollars a year income for a job in Burisma, a Ukrainian firm – a job Hunter knew nothing about and did not even speak the language. An U.S. investigation ensued.

 

“A BBC News video shows Vice President Biden bragging that if the prosecutor is not fired the U.S. would not give the Ukraine money. Biden’s apparent blackmail seems a serious abuse of the power of his office, thereby compromising our Government. 

in December 2013, Hunter Biden accompanied his Father on an official Government visit to China. During that visit, Hunter met with a Chinese banker. Ten days later, Hunter’s small firm, Rosemont Seneca, announced a $1.5 billion equity deal. The money came from the Chinese Government itself. (Note:  All research in the videos of Biden/China was done by author Peter Schweizer and you can find more information in his book. Article Link at the Bottom.

 

“Even though they flew to and from China together, Joe Biden insisted that he and Hunter never discussed business. Does that seem even remotely believable?  $1.5 Billion, and they don’t even high-five?

 

“Hunter Biden and his partners in Rosemont Seneca, Devon Archer and Chris Heinz (former Senator and Secretary of State, John Kerry’s stepson), used loans from the Bank of China to purchase their firm to form a Chinese equity fund to raise money from investors. The son of our Vice President was now involved in purchasing firms and making investment deals for the Communist Chinese Government and the Chinese Military! This is the country that is rapidly becoming the most serious military threat to the USA!

 

“Financial Times made a list of over twelve companies that Hunter and Partners own or have dealings with. This list includes China’s major Nuclear Power company, one of the world’s largest oil refiners and Gemini-Rosemont Realty that owns 135 buildings in 22 USA states. Article Link Below: Inside Hunter Biden’s Dealings With Shadowy Foreign Firms.

 

“Worst of all was the purchase of Henniges Automotive, a commercial and military manufacturer that made parts for our military. That purchase required approval of the highest levels of our Government which was given – even though the partner in the deal, China’s AVIC, was known for stealing U.S. military technology to build their own military jets and drones! 

Many videos are provided in support of the text, one of the best being “Riding the Dragon” the Bidens' Chinese Secrets.” Premièring back on September 4th Its had 1,184,677 views to date.

Since the preceding evidence speaks for itself,

As election day neared back in 2016, these daily postings began noting indications of a serious possibility that Donald Trump might actually have a chance to win the presidency. Immediately prior to election day, polling trends along with well researched materials from alternative media sources soon caused prediction of outright Trump victory. Readers, friends and relatives reacted as if dealing with a certifiable lunatic, the nicest among them quietly suggesting therapy or perhaps registration in a full-care rehabilitation facility. Clinton was untouchable, they all proclaimed, except, she wasn’t.

While a Trump repeat is fully expected here again, mainstream media outlets continually produce overwhelming evidence of a certain Biden triumph to come, offering poll results, expert opinions and historical comparisons along with massive amounts of readily available substantiation of their forecast. But now, the first inklings seen by this writer indicating positive appreciation of Trump’s performance have appeared in that same forum.    

“Tuesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” host Wolf Blitzer questioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her refusal to accept a deal with Republicans for COVID-19 relief.

During the exchange, Pelosi accused the CNN host of being an apologist for Republicans.

“What I say to you is, I don’t know why you’re always an apologist, and many of your colleagues are apologists for the Republican position,”

The two went back and forth over House Democrat negotiating tactics with Pelosi dismissing Blitzer, who cited Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) and former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s assertions that a federal coronavirus response was needed sooner rather than later.”

Catching the drift, reader Amanda Mills commented:Keep this up CNN and you will no longer be fake news !! Good work Wolf! Nancy has lost it ...

Next comes an article from none other than the New York Times by Donald G. McNeil Jr.: “ A Dose of Optimism, as the Pandemic Rages On”

Giving full credit to the administration, McNeil writes: “The months ahead will be difficult. But the medical cavalry is coming, and the rest of us know what we need to do.

“Sometime in the next three months, health experts say, the F.D.A. is likely to begin granting approval to vaccines now in the works.

“Despite the chaos in day-to-day politics and the fighting over issues like masks and lockdowns, Operation Warp Speed — the government’s agreement to subsidize vaccine companies’ clinical trials and manufacturing costs — appears to have been working with remarkable efficiency. It has put more than $11 billion into seven vaccine candidates, and the F.D.A. has said it will approve any one that is at least 50 percent effective at preventing infection or reducing its severity.“Moncef Slaoui, Operation Warp Speed’s chief scientific adviser and a former pharmaceutical executive who has overseen the development of 14 vaccines, has said repeatedly that he expects some of the candidates that he picked to have 75 to 90 percent efficacy and at least two to win approval by early January.

“The last time the nation faced a moment like this was in the 1950s, when polio vaccine became available. For years, parents had lived in fear of the virus, as they saw children die, living in iron lungs or walking with braces on withered legs. When the Salk vaccine became available in 1955 — and again in the 1960s when it was replaced by the Sabin vaccine — Americans lined up in droves to receive it.” “The demand for polio vaccine survived even the horrifying Cutter Incident of 1955, in which a bad batch of 200,000 Salk doses from Cutter Laboratories in Berkeley, Calif. partially paralyzed 260 children and killed 10.”

So, it seems that we now have a couple of chinks in the mainstream media’s armor and perhaps, there are more to come. And if that’s truly the case, bye, bye Biden.

That’s it for today folks.

A friend sent the following list regarding questionable happenings during Joe Biden’s U.S. Vice Presidential tenure. Numerous examples strongly imply serious misconduct, particularly regarding abuse of power as family members became enriched.

Most interesting is that in some circumstances where a political leader might later personally gain from public service where significant effort, particular skill sets or unique talent resulted in tremendous benefit to all, personal gain would likely be publicly acceptable. But this guy never did anything ever for anyone other than himself or relatives.

Here's the list of Biden questions:

 “1. Why did members of your family keep getting lucrative business opportunities overseas while you were vice president?

 2. How did your brother, Frank, secure $45,000,000 in taxpayer loans from the Obama administration for his Caribbean projects?

 3. How did a newly-minted firm employing your other brother, James, receive a $1.5 billion contract to build homes in Iraq despite having no experience in construction or international development?

 4. Why did your son Hunter accompany you on your official trip to Beijing in December 2013? What did he do on that trip? Who did he meet with? What should the American public make of the fact that just 10 days after this trip, your son’s boutique private equity firm secured a $1 billion investment deal from the state-owned bank of China (later expanded to $1.5 billion) despite having no prior experience in China, and with this deal, the Chinese government granted your son’s firm a first-of-its-kind arrangement to operate in the recently formed Shanghai Free-Trade Zone—a perk not granted to any of the large established financial institutions?

 5. Should the American public be concerned that your son’s private equity firm partnered with a Chinese government-owned aerospace and defense conglomerate to facilitate the purchase of an American company that produced strategically sensitive dual-use military technology that the Chinese government wanted?

 6. Does your “Build Back Better” proposal contain any provisions to ensure that American taxpayer-funded technology is not bought off by Chinese state-backed enterprises working with private equity firms like your son’s?

 7. Back in 2000, you voted in favor of giving permanent Normal Trade Relations (NTR) to China. At the time, you said that this would not lead to “the collapse of the American manufacturing economy” because China is “about the size of the Netherlands” and could not possibly become “our major economic competitor.” Furthermore, you predicted that free trade with China would establish “a path toward ever greater political and economic freedom” for the people of China. Do you still stand by these statements today after 3.4 million American jobs have been lost to China and millions of China’s citizens have been imprisoned, surveilled, disappeared, and used as slave labor by an increasingly authoritarian regime enriched by 20 years of record trade imbalances from flagrant trade violations?

 8. The People’s Republic of China has a bold plan called “Made in China 2025” to dominate the key technologies of the future in order to overtake the United States militarily and economically. Do you still contend that China is “not competition for us”?

 9. Why did you promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to financial special interest groups when research was clear that the deal would make it easier for corporations to move U.S. jobs overseas?

 10. Do you believe Xi Jinping kept his promise to Barack Obama to end cyber-espionage against the United States? If not, what are you prepared to do about it?

 11. Do you accept that the coronavirus originated in China? Do you think China was honest with the world in its handling of the coronavirus? Are you satisfied with China’s explanations for how it spread? Do you believe their claims about the number of cases and fatalities in China?

 12. Do you think China should be held responsible in any way for its handling of the coronavirus? If not, why not? What, if any, repercussions should there be for China in its handling of the coronavirus?

 13. Did you suggest investigating Michael Flynn under the Logan Act, as Peter Strzok’s notes suggest?

 14. You said in your DNC acceptance speech that America is ready to “do the hard work of rooting out our systemic racism.” What did you do in your 36 years as a U.S senator and 8 years as vice president to root out systemic racism? Why didn’t it work?

 15. You have called for “revolutionary institutional changes.” What does that mean in practice?

 16. You have vowed to rescind the Trump tax cuts. Can you think of a single example of a country that recovered from a recession by raising taxes? "

Typically, when questioned about potential behavior suspicions Biden takes an approach worthy of his office, such as:  

 You're hootin' at the wrong owl, you nursery-rhymin' can o' beans.”

 “Keep it in your hat, you ol' dribble-mouthed milk licker.”

 “Go candy a yam, you two-faced spit-licker.

 ”You're all strawberry and no preserves, ya foghorn-blowin' trolley jumper.”

 “You woke the rooster this time, ya lemon-squeezin' Chicken Little.”

 “Tell it to the judge, you liver-spotted deuce of diamonds

 “Everybody in the neighborhood knows youse a coupon-clippin' Mallo Cup

  And, “You jackknifed the wrong turnip truck, ya diesel-pumpin' pony-soldier.”

Any and all of those should serve quite well at the nation’s presidential level while having immeasurable value in negotiations with the likes of Vladimir Putin, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the King of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel or of course, leader of the Catholic faith, Pope Francis.

That’s it for today folks.
