    Tony Hrvatska @tonybalogna The smartest thing Trump did at the debate was get Biden disavow Bernie and AOC. Judging from Twitter, they are now pissed and the so-called left wing unity is now openly exposed as fraudulent. 1:19 AM · Sep 30, 2020·Twitter for iPhone

    https://youtu.be/DCRDO79fPHU This morning during his speech Biden hears a train whistle, abruptly stops and makes a comment about maybe it being some train tump wants to shut down, then looks at the train and says no that's the commuter, like he's all confused. This vid would be better if it shows a few seconds more of the speech before Biden abruptly is distracted. https://youtu.be/DCRDO79fPHU

    “I’m not at risk, neither are my kids,” Musk told host Kara Swisher about the rationale behind his decision. ...During the bizarre exchange, the Tesla CEO decried the nationwide lockdown as a “no-win situation” that has “diminished my faith in humanity.” Musk previously called widespread quarantines “unethical” and “de facto house arrest,” Swisher criticized his suggestion, adding that humans could potentially die in the process. “Everybody dies,” quipped Musk. “Gates said something about me not knowing what I was doing,” Musk told Swisher. “It’s like, ‘Hey, knucklehead, we actually make the vaccine machines for CureVac, that company you’re invested in.'”...

    So during and after last night presidential debate I've seen trending the claim that the "US economy grew faster during Obama's last 3 years than it did during Trump's first 3 years". I wanted to read into this so I was just wondering if there was an article be it recent or not debunking this?

    The US NAVY SEALs and the Navy Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) recently changed their ethos and creed statements to reflect a gender neutral presentation of the elite NAVY outfits, doing away with gendered terms like "brotherhood".

    The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) approval of the GE9X follows thousands of hours of testing, and clears the engine for life aboard the world’s largest twin-engine aircraft, the Boeing 777X. Before that maiden flight even took place, GE Aviation said it had hundreds of orders on the books from a range of customers in the aviation space, but its primary focus has been the forthcoming family of wide-body planes from Boeing. Developed to power these next-generation 777X passenger jets The GE9X engine itself is as wide as a Boeing 737 fuselage, and is 10 percent more efficient than the GE90...

    The Hill ^ | 09 30 2020 | Jordain Carney and John Bowden
    Former FBI Director James Comey on Wednesday sought to defend the bureau’s 2016 investigation into Russian election interference against Senate Republicans' allegations of bias against the Trump campaign. Comey testified before the GOP-led Senate Judiciary Committee, which is examining the origins of the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the presidential race and ties between the Kremlin and Trump. While Comey indicated he would’ve made some decisions differently had he known about the faults in applications for wiretaps on then-Trump campaign aide Carter Page, he defended the investigation as a whole. “I would say in the main it was done...

    A laptop and several memory sticks used to program Philadelphia’s voting machines were stolen from a city warehouse in East Falls, city officials confirmed Wednesday, setting off a scramble among elections officials to investigate the theft and ensure the machines could not be compromised before Election Day. The equipment appeared to be taken this week, sources said. Officials immediately began checking to make sure none of the voting machines had been compromised while also working to contain the fallout for fear of how President Donald Trump and his allies might use the news to cast doubt on the integrity of...

    Leaders of the nation’s movie theater business, which has been hammered by the COVID-19 pandemic, are urging Congress to provide bailout funds so the industry can survive. The letter urges Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy to redirect unallocated funds from the CARES Act to proposals that help businesses that have suffered the steepest revenue drops due to the pandemic. The National Association of Theatre Owners, the Directors Guild of America, the Motion Picture Association and more than 70 directors, producers, and writers signed the letter....

    “Enrique Tarrio, their overall leader, is a Black Cuban dude. The Proud Boys explicitly say they’re not racist,” Mr. Reilly told The Washington Times. “They are an openly right-leaning group and they’ll openly fight you — they don’t deny any of this — but saying they’re White supremacist: If you’re talking about a group of people more than 10% people of color and headed by an Afro-Latino guy, that doesn’t make sense.”

    CNN has confirmed the obvious: the globalist elite never intend to return to normal and plan to make the Draconian measures implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic permanent. CNN senior International correspondent Nick Paton Walsh wrote the article giving away the plot. The world will be forever changed because of COVID-19, a.k.a. the China plague, and freedom will never return. “We are slowly learning if this year’s changes are permanent. If work — for the lucky among us — will remain from home. If we will visit the grocery store less but spend more. If we will find wearing a mask...

    Police funding cuts in major American cities have unleashed a torrent of bloodshed, according to one expert, who calls the homicide spike the “Minneapolis effect.” Paul Cassell, a professor at S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah, said the escalating murder rate can be traced to Minneapolis city council voting to dismantle the police following the shocking May 25 death of Black man George Floyd in police custody. Cassell said it appears that politicians in their haste to punish police have triggered a new epidemic of violence. “As a result of de-policing during June and July 2020,...

    We know that Hunter Biden sat on the board for Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, despite having no natural gas experience. He was being paid $50,000 a month for his "contributions" to the board (whatever those may be) while his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, was handling affairs with Ukraine on behalf of the Obama administration. We know that MBNA, a Delaware-based banking company, hired Hunter straight out of law school. Then-Sen. Biden had received campaign contributions from the company during previous elections and was even working on a bill MBNA backed. Now, it turns out that Hunter received a...

    ....It’s no secret that the ruling class in America despises the country class. If you’re one of those people who don’t live in coastal cities and subscribe to the same worldview as the elite aspirants hoping for a job at a billionaire-backed NGO or an internship that might lead to a job at McKinsey then you’re a deplorable, a CHUD, and definitely racist and whatever bad things are happening to you, your family, and your inland town are your just deserts. One of Trump’s main functions and biggest appeals is that he exposes the occupational elites that are credentialed but...

    In his 1907 autobiography, cowboy Nat Love recounts stories from his life on the frontier so cliché, they read like scenes from a John Wayne film. He describes Dodge City, Kansas, a town smattered with the romanticized institutions of the frontier: “a great many saloons, dance halls, and gambling houses, and very little of anything else.” He moved massive herds of cattle from one grazing area to another, drank with Billy the Kid and participated in shootouts with Native peoples defending their land on the trails. And when not, as he put it, “engaged in fighting Indians,” he amused himself...

    Positive coronavirus tests in New York City recently went above 3%, causing Mayor Bill de Blasio to impose fines for those who do not wear masks in public. Nine zip codes have seen a rise in coronavirus cases, including Brooklyn, Queens, and Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods....De Blasio said the city does “not want to fine people.” City workers will provide free masks for people. If the person refuses the mask, then the city will issue them a fine of up to $1,000. De Blasio also threatened private schools with closure if they “don’t follow rules such as mask use and maintaining...
  • California task force will consider paying reparations for slavery

    SACRAMENTO — With Gov. Gavin Newsom’s signature, California became the first state government in the country on Wednesday to adopt a law to study and develop proposals for potential reparations to descendants of enslaved people and those impacted by slavery. Newsom said the new law and bipartisan support for its passage is proving “a paradigm that we hope will be resonant all across the United States.” In a year of national protests against racial injustice, state lawmakers approved Assembly Bill 3121 to force the state to begin to confront its racist history and systemic disparities that persist today. Although California...

    The University of North Carolina’s “Anti-Racist Graduate Worker Collective” is calling for the redistribution of administrators’ salaries for “worker relief.” According to the Daily Tar Heel, a memo from the UNC System’s former interim president Bill Roper stated that chancellors in the System can issue salary reductions for certain employees, including faculty and senior administrators in an attempt to help mitigate COVID-19 losses. The Anti-Racist Graduate Worker Collective is asking that this authority be exercised to fund programs and departments low on resources....The group demanded that the “University administration accept a pay cut of 10%, and that the funds freed...
