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,

That’s it for today folks.

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.

As noted prior to the presidential debate, this writer ignores them completely whereas their basic purpose has never been understood. A review of clips of last evenings vice presidential “debate,” along with perusal of commentary from an array of political writers and talking heads has provided no further insight regarding their purpose.

Common opinions among Democrat experts soundly conveys that candidate Harris clearly won the event while Republican counterparts concluded the absolute reverse. It’s a virtual certainty that viewers opinions came down on precisely the same partisan lines; their candidate won.

One critical point was made, however, regarding Mike Pence who left absolutely no doubt of his presidential capabilities. Displaying well-versed knowledge of issues presently most crucial to the nation, that acumen was aptly employed in two broad aspects. Used primarily to present the administration’s admirable performance record to date, Pence’s astuteness was conversely applied to refute numerous falsities, subterfuges and outright lies from his opponent. The display of the vice president’s talents should also serve well to confirm his qualifications for rising to the oval office when he replaces Trump four years from now.

Coming back to the debate itself and attempts to determine its purpose, several factors continue to apply. Regardless of the candidates utterings, prior to the contest, the Democrat objective included immediate plans for the raising of taxes, personal and corporate. National borders to be opened with a host of benefits granted to illegal aliens. Fracking is to be ceased. Environmental protections will return to prominence along with plans to “support voting rights and minority rights, including LGBT rights, multiculturalism, and religious secularism.

For Republicans, continuation and enhancement of policy having already proven worth remains the objective, more than likely including further tax reduction, increased border security along with troop reduction across the globe.

After last nights contest, regardless of the candidates utterings, the Democrat objective included immediate plans for the raising of taxes, personal and corporate. National borders to be opened with a host of benefits granted to illegal aliens. Fracking is to be ceased. Environmental protections will return to prominence along with plans to “support voting rights and minority rights, including LGBT rights, multiculturalism, and religious secularism.

For Republicans, continuation and enhancement of policy having already proven worth remains the objective, more than likely including further tax reduction, increased border security along with troop reduction across the globe.

Returning to this writer's opening premise today regarding debates themselves, whereas nothing in the campaign's changed an iota, "their basic purpose has never been understood.”

Today's one of the most personally meaningful days transpired. For quite some time, new postings appeared here seven days a week while, for approximately one and a half years, each and every post contained a section headed: Bringing us to today’s update on Bill Clinton’s wife. 

The woman was referred to in that context whereas, to this writer’s knowledge, she’d personally accomplished only one meaningful achievement throughout life to date. Somehow or other managing to marry Bill Clinton, paving the way for maximizing personal benefit in any way deemed most valuable at any particular time. Up to and including leveraging minimal to absent capabilities into the positions of United States senator from New York from 2001 to 2009, United States secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 and finally, nominee of the Democratic Party for president of the United States in 2016. None of which would have been remotely possible had there been no marriage between Bill and herself, whereas without that union, no one outside her personal contacts would have known who she was at all.

Quite interesting is the fact that it was more than likely a full self-awareness of capability shortfalls, an almost certain sense of unelectability as well as probably recognized personal repulsiveness, that caused need for seeking insurance for her presidential campaign. Up until then, personal qualities were irrelevant inasmuch as her husband’s positions provided access to any employment desired at various times. And evidently, that’s where the idea arose for creating a horrendous falsity against presidential rival candidate, Donald Trump.

Confirmation of need for assistance and insurances well beyond the running of a traditional presidential campaign are unequivocally confirmed by the fact that, despite full support and continual promotion from her husband, one of the most popular presidents ever, along with backing from then incumbent Obama, abetted by complete patronization from the mainstream media and maximized resources of the Democrat party, she nonetheless still lost the election.

Coming back to today’s subject, release of long-suppressed, likely incriminating evidence establishing proof of a hoax perpetrated against Trump by Bill Clinton’s wife, it would seem her election loss would be sufficient satisfaction on the subject. But no, it isn’t.

This writer has far too many hours, far too much perspiration and far too much effort invested to simply smile and walk away satisfied by a presidential campaign failure. Researching each and every day for hours, always finding something newly and differently repulsive, frequently untrue as presented by her or potentially illegal, for more than 18 months demands application of greater penalties for crimes committed than an election loss.

The magnitude of illegality perpetrated against Trump, instigated at the highest levels of government, involving individuals perceived by the nations citizens as the most trustworthy on Earth, deserve far more retribution than mere exposure as self-serving opportunists. Included in the list beyond Clinton are: Obama, Biden, Rice, Lynch, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Strzok, Page and on down to FBI and Justice Department involved leadership. Were these “ordinary” citizens, appropriate punishment would undoubtedly and univocally be the public expectation, up to and including incarceration where merited.

Whatever future outcomes may be, however, the most rewarding and spirit-raising posting seen referencing a long-awaited outcome comes from President Donald Trump today: “I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!

That’s it for today folks.

Once again, a communication with a friend produced material worth distribution on a wider scale. This one's my response to information just received regarding Biden perhaps suffering the onset of dementia. The friend deemed the theory "Very interesting!" 

Here's my response: "Thanks, for the input. And I know this seems extreme, but I still suspect there’s a reasonable chance that Biden’s dementia’s a subterfuge. Considering the amount of information now amassing about the huge abuses of office committed, significantly enriching five or six family members while Vice President, he very well may face very serious charges. His son and brother in particular received millions Biden extorted. Such as massive Ukrainian funds for his son while brother, James, was appointed vice president of a business receiving a contract to build 100,000 homes in Iraq. Yet James’ bio doesn’t mention a thing about construction experience at all. There are plenty of other examples of significant misbehavior as well, which is why I suspect he may be setting up some kind of alibi or defense predicated on allaying charges due to dementia.

"What also confirms potentially portrayed dementia symptoms is his debate performance, which by all reports was conducted perfectly. So which Biden is it, the one that’s demented and unfit for trial or the one fully capable of admirably performing the duties of the president of the United States?"

That's it for today folks.

A friend sent the following unattributed letter yesterday, received from a friend of his. It's reposted here because it contains one of the best and most comprehensive summaries of Trump presidential history seen to date. Clearly illustrating how by simply doing his job, precisely fulfilling platform promises to those electing him, he's been subjected to the perhaps most vilifying personal attack campaign in the nation's history.

The penultimate paragraph is repeated here because it merits additional emphasis: "JUST imagine what this country could accomplish if the Democrats worked with [Trump] on the economy, the coronavirus, the inner cities where he's created opportunity zones, job training etc. When Trump tried to get school choice for inner-city students, they ran Betsy Devos out!! The democrats running those inner-city schools wanted no part of school choice. Have you ever wondered why it's cities that for decades, have the MOST HOMELESS, the MOST CRIME, the most MURDERS, the worst INNER-CITY schools, ARE ALL RUN BY DEMOCRATS?"

Here's the full mailing itself: "This woman lives in Sedona and a retired lawyer. She writes in simple language as a former Democrat to Democrats in general:

"Democrats –

"Now I know you don't like President Trump. That’s a given, SO let's move on from that.

"How about the division of America. Do you really blame Trump for that? How about when NONE of the DEMOCRATS showed up for his inauguration?  Don't you think that started the division? He hadn't even been president yet, and EXCEPT for Clinton and Obama, not one Democrat showed up. Is that when Trump divided America? Can you imagine if the REPUBLICANS didn't show up for Obama's inauguration because they lost? Can you even start to imagine what would have happened?

"How about when 19 minutes after Trump was inaugurated, the Washington Post declared the IMPEACHMENT CAMPAIGN has STARTED? Was that when Trump divided America?

"How about when Nancy Pelosi ripped up Trump's state of the union right in front of the world, showing complete disrespect for the President of the United States? Did that bring the country together and is THAT when Trump divided America?

"How about when America had to endure 3 years and over 30 million dollars spent on trying to PROVE that Trump only won because of RUSSIAN COLLUSION and NOT because America voted him in. And 17 democrats did EVERYTHING in their power to PROVE that there was Russian Collusion and came up with ZERO?  Was THAT when Trump divided America?

"I can't even start to go over the NEGATIVE PRESS he's received since his surprise win. Remember, the DONORS, the likes of Bloomberg, who gave 27 million, Tom Steyer who gave 17 million, George Soros who gave 9 million and MANY MORE that gave MULTI-MILLIONS to Hillary, wanted a return on their investment. Do you really think that donors give MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS just because they love Hillary? NO, these weren't campaign donations, they were INVESTMENTS into what HILLARY had promised them when she became President. They were so sure she would win and they would be SHOWERED with HUGE RETURNS, and when it didn't happen and they LOST all those millions, they went all out to TAKE TRUMP out of OFFICE by any means possible.

"DID YOU KNOW that 90% of the Mainstream media and the corporations that own them, are owned by or run by BIG DEMOCRAT DONORS? You can verify all of that for yourselves. I did. Since the moment Trump won, even before he was inaugurated, the mainstream media's reporting was 92% negative on Trump, do you know why? It was those big donors that lost their dream of MILLIONS of dollars, on their returns that they were going to receive when Hillary was President and they weren't going to take that loss lightly. They needed to PUNISH TRUMP and those that VOTED HIM IN.

"I've said this since the night he was elected. "There is NOTHING the left won't do to take down our President”, our country and us, no low they won't go to, to get their power back", and sadly, we have seen this every single day since his election.

"Let me ask you this. Have you ever listened to Trump or appreciated any accomplishment or campaign promises he's kept, have you ever gone to one of his rallies or have you just closed your mind to anything he does? Please ask yourselves the following questions, if you dare.

"What has Joe Biden done for America for the last 47 years that he's held an office?
What did Joe Biden ever do for BLACKS when HE and Obama were in office?
What has Joe Biden ever done in his entire life to create a private-sector job?
What has Joe Biden done to help the American middle class worker?
Let me also ask you this.  Why do you think there are so many people tearing down statues, burning our flag, beating up police officers, disrespecting our founders and hating our country? It comes straight from our SCHOOLS that have slowly been tearing down our history. If there is a teacher out there, please tell me the following:

"Do you teach the truth that it was the DEMOCRATS that were the KKK?
That the GRAND LEADER of the KKK was Robert Byrd, who was elected to congress as a DEMOCRAT and served for decades, and that it was Hillary, Bill, and Obama that gave his EULOGY praising him?

"That the DEMOCRATS fought the Civil war to KEEP SLAVERY?  That the inner-city ghettoes were created by DEMOCRATS to keep control of slaves after they were freed?
That planned parenthood was founded in inner cities to CONTROL the BLACK POPULATION?  Is any of this in your history books?
 
"
Let me ask you this as well: Can a student speak up when he/she disagrees with a teacher when they say that Trump is a horrible President or the electoral college has to be eliminated?  I don't think so?  Well, I know a student that actually happened to. When the teacher said it had to be eliminated because Hillary lost, and he stated the reason it should stay, she ripped him apart and gave the entire class a 5-hour test, and stated it was because he DARED to disagree with her.  Is that happening in your schools?

"I'm only asking questions. I'd like your answers.

"President Trump and his entire family has been vilified, demeaned and disrespected, for one reason and one reason only. HE WON.

"Have you noticed the DEMOCRATS only throw tantrums and OBJECT to everything he does and have NEVER ONCE gotten behind him to make America the best it can be?  WHY?  They can't afford to get behind him. He would WIN AGAIN, and they can't let that happen. if he wins again, the Democrat party will be destroyed and they know it.

"Did you notice that the "CAGES" the left claimed that Trump built to put Illegal children in, WERE BUILT BY OBAMA for the very purpose of PUTTING ILLEGAL CHILDREN IN?  Was THAT all over the news when Obama did it?  The very same “CAGES," but the media was silent!

"How about when Trump commuted Roger Stone's sentence, and was DEMONIZED 24/7 but NOT A WORD when Obama commuted 1,715 inmates, which included 330 that he granted on his last day in office. DID WE EVEN HEAR one WORD about it?

"Were there reporters even reporting it. NO! Just look at the difference in the reporting.  By the way, since Trump's been in office, he's commuted 10 people. Compare that to Obama. Is that reporting fair?

"How about when Biden and Obama allowed the H1N1, the SWINE FLU, to INFECT MILLIONS of Americans before declaring it a health emergency. Was the press losing its minds and calling it the OBAMA FLU AND BLAMING OBAMA and BIDEN for the spread?...SILENCE!

"Compare this to the NEGATIVE COVERAGE that Trump got when he immediately halted travel from China. Then, in February, Nancy Pelosi went to Chinatown and said come on down, or when DeBlasio, in March, said ride the subways and go to Broadway. BUT those same people are blaming Trump for the spread of coronavirus.

"A FINAL QUESTION:

"What have the DEMOCRATS done to help make America the best, to get behind a president that works tirelessly to care about WE THE PEOPLE instead of using us as political pawns? What have the Democrats done for people of color EXCEPT for GIVING ILLEGALS more rights than citizens and having us pay for it?
 
"JUST imagine what this country could accomplish if the Democrats worked with him on the economy, the coronavirus, the inner cities where he's created opportunity zones, job training etc. When Trump tried to get school choice for inner-city students, they ran Betsy Devos out!! The Democrats running those inne
r-city schools wanted no part of school choice. Have you ever wondered why it's cities that for decades, have the MOST HOMELESS, the MOST CRIME, the most MURDERS, the worst INNER-CITY schools, ARE ALL RUN BY DEMOCRATS?

"If you haven't started asking yourselves those questions, maybe you should. As I said, my entire family used to be Democrats, but NOT ONE will ever vote for a Democrat again. They asked themselves the same questions and the answer was clear."

The text having spoken for itself, that's it for today folks.

A friend sent a disquieting email yesterday, explaining his dislike, repulsion and distrust of Trump. In fact, his disappointment was so great with both presidential candidates he'd decided not to vote at all this November. 

Reviewing my reply to him suggested turning it into a post that may be useful to others, as follows: 

"I certainly can’t disagree with your conclusion that Trump may be dishonest. It’s also quite likely that all politicians are criminal to some degree, most of them worthless parasites as well. However, in a presidential election we only get two real choices, one of which will wind up effectively heading the country. And this time around there’s far more at stake than which crook attains the White House, the nation’s political philosophy’s in play as well.

"Should the Democrats somehow win, the door’s wide open to socialism, wealth redistribution, reparations, economy strangling tax reform, rejoining the ridiculous and unaffordable Paris climate accord, resurrecting Iran as a super power, isolating Israel once more, shutting off U.S. oil production along with a return to dependence on Middle-Eastern providers doubling or tripling costs of fuel, packing the Supreme Court to prevent conservative justices forevermore, along with elimination of the Electoral College insuring that major Democrat sanctuary states/cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Baltimore, Detroit et al take electoral control well into the foreseeable future.

"Additionally, open borders will permit all who choose unbridled entrance while all illegal aliens will be granted free health care, education, decriminalization of border crossings, moratoriums on deportations to pressure Congress to act on immigration legislation and the elimination of expedited removal proceedings.

"While these are highlights to considerably more removal of the vestiges of capitalism, another personal suspicion exists whereas its very likely that considerable numbers of personal income-producing voters are presently unaware of the span of leftist ideology and its true impact on their after-tax earnings. Which means that when they find out the ultimate personal costs while observing government ridiculously redistribute their hard earned incomes, the very strong possibility of some kind of nation-destroying civil war truly exists.

"As a result I strongly suggest, that considering what very well may happen should the Democrats win, you find a way to temporarily ignore Trump’s personal traits as you enter the voting booth, pull the Republican levers and do what’s best for your country and certainly yourself under the current circumstances."

"MB"

That's it for today folks.

Tuesday's entry addressed an inability to understand how presidential candidates presentation technique and personal style possibly overrode impacts of party platform policies on voter’s lives. Yet, the vast majority of media commentary still seems primarily concerned with candidate’s acceptability as individuals. The ridiculousness of that premise is still found incomprehensible whereas the idea remains unfathomable that individuals, for example, would willingly pay significantly more in personal income taxes because Trump seems unpolished or brash to them.  

To illustrate the probable costs to voters preferring one they perceive as a quite gentlemanly older man, here’s some data compiled in a Wall Street Journal op-ed by Stephen Moore back on September 30th, 2019. As posted on the Americans for Tax Reform website, household income had reached an all-time high:

“Real median household income—the amount earned by those in the very middle—hit $65,084 (in 2019 dollars) for the 12 months ending in July. That’s the highest level ever and a gain of $4,144, or 6.8%, since Mr. Trump took office. By comparison, during 7½ years under President Obama—starting from the end of the recession in June 2009 through January 2017—the median household income rose by only about $1,000.”

The following chart highlights the strong Trump wage growth.

                     


Prior to the onslaught of the Chinese virus, many signs indicated the strengths of the Trump economy.

·        According to then Labor Department Job Openings and Labor Turnover Data, the ratio of unemployed persons to job openings was just 0.8 in July of 2019 an all-time low since this data was first collected in 2000.
 

·         Hiring and job openings also remained strong – 6 million people started a job in July and there were 7.2 million openings.
 

·         3.6 million workers voluntarily quit their jobs last July indicating there was strong confidence in finding other employment.

    
     ·       Unemployment remained low at 3.7 percent, over 6 million jobs created under Trump.  

       ·       The unemployment rate for African Americans hit a record low of 5.5 percent, Hispanic unemployment matching record lows of 4.2 percent.

 

·         The civilian labor force had increased by 571,000 according to the BLS household  data, the largest such gain since October 2018 and the fourth consecutive month of labor force growth.

This stood in especially stark contrast to Biden, as well as Democrats both in congress and on the campaign trail that "proposed trillions of dollars in tax increases that would undo the existing economic growth that has benefited American families and businesses across the country.

While the nation runs on its economy, Trump’s strongest capability, he’s also significantly bettered the entire left on foreign policy, border control, illegal immigration, veteran benefits, significant income tax cuts, widespread deregulation, increased military spending, rollbacks of federal health-care protections and appointment of conservative judges consistent with conservative policies. While crossing party lines in addressing anti-globalization policies of trade protectionism, describing himself as a nationalist in foreign affairs, Trump’s also said he’s "totally flexible on very, very many issues."

Returning us to the confusions arising when a presidential candidate’s current performance in office so far outpaces his opposition’s utmost capabilities it truly isn’t even a contest. Yet media coverage persists in dwelling on aspects of personal presentation demeanor. And that, once again, reminds of the old Henny Youngman gag about the dupe in the diner watching his coat as directed by the sign, which is when they stole his lunch.

That’s it for today folks.
