    President Donald Trump on Wednesday tried to walk back his refusal to outright condemn a far right fascist group during his debate with Democrat Joe Biden, but the inflammatory moment was far from the first time the president has failed to denounce white supremacists or has advanced racist ideas. Trump’s initial refusal to criticize the Proud Boys — instead saying the group should “stand back and stand by” — drew fierce blowback before he altered his message in a day-later effort to quell the firestorm. “I don’t know who Proud Boys are. But whoever they are they have to stand...

    President Trump has agreed to speak remotely Thursday at the New York Archdiocese’s first ever virtual Al Smith fundraising event amid the coronavirus pandemic, church officials said Monday evening. The Archdiocese has also extended an invitation to former Vice President Joe Biden, who is Catholic, and is hopeful he will also agree to speak at the 75th annual fundraiser, the first being held remotely and not taking place at a location with speakers and hundreds of guests.

    Stewart Rhodes was living his vision of the future. On television, American cities were burning, while on the internet, rumors warned that antifa bands were coming to terrorize the suburbs. Rhodes was driving around South Texas, getting ready for them. He answered his phone. “Let’s not f**k around,” he said. “We’ve descended into civil war.” It was a Friday evening in June. Rhodes, 55, is a stocky man with a gray buzz cut, a wardrobe of tactical-casual attire, and a black eye patch. With him in his pickup were a pistol and a dusty black hat with the gold logo...

    Having forced myself to listen to most of the Republican National Convention (RNC) orations in late August, I was struck by what my daughter, who had done such work professionally, characterized as the program’s “underlying marketing strategy.” The GOP’s advisers seem to have pitched their message at the demographics among whom Trump has had the least support in the polls, namely suburban, college-educated women, and blacks. Trump, according to the polls, was losing the former group until recently by about 20 percentage points, and may be winning the votes of no more than 8 percent of blacks. The overall size...

    Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale resigned from his post on the president’s re-election team Wednesday evening, days after he was detained and hospitalized following an altercation at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Trump campaign confirmed to Fox News that Parscale had stepped down but did not immediately provide a statement on his departure. Parscale, 44, had served a leading role in the campaign’s digital outreach efforts following his demotion from the campaign manager’s post in July.

    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?

    ABC’s “The View” co-host Joy Behar said on Wednesday’s broadcast that President Donald Trump was a “white supremacist” in response to an exchange at Tuesday night’s presidential debate. Behar said, “Of course, he doesn’t denounce white supremacy because he is a white supremacist. Americans have to decide whether they want a white supremacist in the White House. We have never had it before. Maybe we didn’t know we had it, but we certainly know we have it now. That is the decision on November 3rd that must be made. ”

    All of this "Trump is a racist" crap is nonsense. JUST READ HIS COMMENTS! The money quote: We must love each other, show affection for each other and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. We are a nation founded on the truth, that all of us...

    I’m watching Comey Senate Hearings. Comey says he still believes Trump is a Russian Agent (with no evidence) and the Republicans, some of who told fond Jim Comey stories of their time together, said they are “disappointed” in Comey! Disappointed! This is worse than a disaster, Graham is doing painfully bad acting, and this is just over the top bad.

    CLAIM: Debate Moderator Chris Wallace claimed that President Donald Trump is ending “racial sensitivity training.” VERDICT: FALSE. Wallace, moderating the first presidential debate on Tuesday night, made a number of inaccurate statements in his questions to both candidates on the topic of race. One was the claim that President Trump is ending “racial sensitivity training.” That is simply not true Trump banned a specific kind of racial insensitivity training, which involves “Critical Race Theory.” As Breitbart News previously explained: Critical Race Theory is the idea that the major institutions of the United States are tainted by slavery and racism because...

    In a letter obtained by Breitbart News, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) asked the Department of Justice to investigate possible crimes committed via the alleged disclosure of President Donald Trump’s tax returns to the New York Times. The New York Times published details of what it alleged were Trump’s tax returns on Sunday. It alleged that the president’s tax returns revealed “chronic losses and years of tax avoidance.” In a letter to Attorney General William Barr, Zeldin wrote:

    It is interesting anyway. Watch the difference in Covid totals, I am not saying any country wants to 'take the lead' in this category. But watch, nevertheless. India seems poised to, at least, challenge America, at this questionable total.

    CLEVELAND — Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden released his 2019 tax returns Tuesday afternoon, just hours before his first debate with President Trump in Cleveland. “The American people deserve transparency from their leaders, it’s why as of today, I’ve released 22 years of my tax returns,” Biden tweeted Tuesday, 48 hours after the New York Times published leaked portions of what it said were the commander-in-chief’s financial records. The former veep and wife Jill Biden declared a gross income of $985,233 in 2019 and paid $299,346 in federal income tax, according to the financial disclosures published on the campaign website....

Bernstein called the bombshell Times report 'the smoking gun of a pervasively criminal presidency' in an interview with CNN on Monday morning. 'Donald Trump and his family are grifters,' he said.

    Just hours before the first presidential debate, two polls released Tuesday show Joe Biden with a considerable nine-point lead against Donald Trump in the battleground state of Pennsylvania as a vast majority of nationwide voters say debate performances won’t change their minds about who they’re voting for. A Washington Post/ABC News poll taken September 21-26 shows that 54 per cent of likely voters in the swing state plan to cast their ballot for the Democratic nominee compared to the 45 per cent who say they will vote for the president. At the same time, a national survey from Politico/Morning Consult...

    Western Journal ^ | September 28, 2020 | Dick Morris
    Contrary to the false impression in the New York Times story, Donald Trump did not avoid taxes. He prepaid them. In 2016 and 2017, he requested and got an extension to file his returns. As required, he made an estimated tax payment of $1 million in 2016 and $4.2 million in 2017. Then, it turned out that he did not owe that much in taxes, but rather than demand the money back, he let the IRS keep it and apply it to any future tax he owed.

    there are two likely legal results of the Trump "nullify the election" propaganda campaign: (1) The Supreme Court could potentially disqualify electors on the basis that their state's results are too unclear to certify before the December 14 statutory deadline when the Electoral College must meet, thereby throwing the entire election to the U.S. House of Representatives for resolution, as set out in the 12th Amendment to the Constitution; or (2) the Supreme Court might point to the Electoral Count Act of 1887, which states that the House and Senate together will decide which Electoral College electors are to be...

    As you might recall, we've been reporting on Trump's plans to invoke the Insurrection Act after the election, deploying military troops on the streets to halt the extremist left-wing political coup attempt that's expect to be activated shortly after the election. Now, fascinating news has emerged that confirms US federal intelligence officials have, for months, been quietly identifying the participants and leaders of both Antifa and BLM terrorist organizations, including wealthy donors who are funding these operations. It turns out that Trump's DHS has been using sophisticated phone "cloning" hardware to impersonate the phones of Antifa and BLM extremists in...

    President Trump lambasted a New York Times report that said he paid no federal income taxes for 10 of the past 15 years, calling the story “fake news” and arguing that he paid large amounts of federal and state taxes. “It's fake news, it’s totally made up,” Trump said Sunday during a press briefing less than an hour after the story broke in the newspaper. “Everything was wrong, they are so bad.” According to the New York Times report, Trump, who has fiercely guarded his tax filings and is the only president in modern times not to make them public,...
