    liberals have sounded the jungle drums: trump will be dragged from the oval office should he refuse to vacate on january 20, 2021. there is not much of a preamble, but presumably, this is only if trump is not elected to a second term. however, what if there is an electoral college or ussc electoral college issue stalemate? we already see that the liberals are willing to sacrifice the constitutional institutions of the electoral college and the ussc upon the altar of social justice (the contemporary equivalent term for political correctness these days). in theory, if the electoral college cannot...

    The Hill reporter Joe Concha contrasted the easy-going line of questioning Joe Biden received from voters during a CNN town hall on Thursday to the grilling questions President Trump took at a separate town hall this week. Concha’s observation: Biden, Concha said in an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Friday, took “beach balls” for questions during the Pennsylvania town hall but described Trump’s ABC News-moderated town hall as “obviously hostile.” “One town hall was infinitely more challenging than the other,” Concha said. “It’s very apparent what we saw between the two candidates, one obviously hostile the other one hospitable.”

    That’s a really crappy political campaign. Police in Maine are hunting a middle-aged woman who has been dumping dog poop in Trump supporters’ mailboxes, according to a report Thursday. “She has been picking up dog feces and putting it in mailboxes, specifically of people who have Trump signs outside,” Alyshia Canwell, a patrol officer with Hampden Public Safety, told WGME. The doggy-doo deliverer was spotted both Sunday and Monday, and was snapped riding a purple bike around Hampden while wearing a matching-colored T-shirt, glasses and Crocs, according to a police photo.

    We’re told by feminists and members of the elite media that we are not to comment on what women politicians are wearing because that would be sexist. Yet this past week, the mainstream media fawned over Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ Timberland boots, even though some outlets previously ripped First Lady Melania Trump for wearing the same brand. On Wednesday, multiple media outlets covered Harris’ choice to wear Timberland boots while visiting areas affected by the California wildfires. The most bootlicking (pun intended) of which came from Yahoo!Finance writer Brian Sozzi, whose headline read: “Kamala Harris may have made Timberland...

    A professor at Suffolk County Community College in New York has been reassigned pending an investigation by the university after a video of her encouraging students not to vote for President Trump during an online class was posted on social media. The professor in question has been identified as Janet Gulla, an assistant women’s studies professor at the university, according to Newsday. “He’s had four freaking years of a chance, and he’s done a crap job, and he’s really ruining our country,” Gulla said during a virtual lesson. She continued: “Many of you this may be the first time that...

    Two Ohio high school students were reinstated on their football team after being suspended for disobeying an order to not carry flags supporting police onto the field, according to the school district. Students Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams from Little Miami High School were suspended from the team after they carried a thin red line flag honoring firefighters and a thin blue line flag honoring police onto the football field Friday, according to TV station Local 12. Both boys had previously requested the school to carry the flags onto the field, but their request was denied and they were warned...
  • ABC’s Sunny Hostin: ‘BLM Protests Are Not Violent At All, It Is A False Narrative Manufactured By The Trump Campaign’

    During Monday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” co-host Sunny Hostin said that President Trump’s campaign was “manufacturing” a false narrative that Black Lives Matter protest were violent. She actually recognizes them as ‘peaceful’ protests and all the chaos is being pushed by Trump and his administration… Pathetic! Talking about the two Los Angeles Country deputies being ambushed and shot in Compton, Hostin said: “I want to say that there’s no place for people to go and shoot officers that are sitting in their cars. My heart goes out to their families and their friends. I was so horrified to hear...

    Bands of armed Oregonians blocked roads and demanded identification from motorists after a small fire was ignited intentionally on Saturday, police said. Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese said the blaze was started by an illegal firework and was put out quickly, according to a Saturday tweet from the department. Oregon has been plagued by wildfires in recent days, as 22 people on the West Coast have lost their lives and large portions of the state were covered by an orange hue, ABC News reported. “We started receiving reports of local residents establishing roadblocks in East Multnomah County,” Reese said in...

    Jose Ometeotl, the city manager of Lynwood, California suggested that the shooting of two Los Angeles County deputies over the weekend was not surprising and even indicated that it was payback for how law enforcement has treated the community. The story: Ometeotl posted a meme on his Instagram page featuring 1960’s black leader Malcolm X alongside the words “chickens come home to roost.” He wrote that “the shooting of anyone is a wholly unacceptable occurrence in society” and “[t]he fact that someone randomly opened fire on deputies is to be expected in the society we live in today.” Ometeotl pointed...
  • Poll Shows How Big a Factor Riots are in Election

    Ninety-two percent of voters stated in a Harvard CAPS / Harris Poll results that the violent demonstrations and riots would be a central factor in the 2020 presidential election. Democrats recently changed their tune on the violent riots with an attempted rebrand calling the violence a direct product of “Trump’s America.” If you evaluate all of the last decade’s mass violent demonstrations, most of them took place under the Obama administration. This is now the third Harvard CAPS / Harris Survey that published topline findings in the absence of any methodology or cross-tabs available from the study. The final results...

    Rochester Police Department officers have been allowed to hide name tags while on duty after Black Lives Matter protesters started doxing them, “putting the safety of their families in jeopardy.” The story: Officers have already been allowed to remove the name tags from the uniforms but the decision was revealed during a virtual meeting Wednesday between Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren and members of the city council. The city leaders convened to discuss their plan of action following the resignations of Police Chief La’Ron Singletary and six other command staff amid backlash over the department’s handling of a recent arrest that...

    A student in New York has been arrested after arriving at school for in-person learning, in violation of the school’s COVID-19 regulations, after the school previously suspended him for the same reason. The suspension: Maverick Stow, a 17-year-old senior at William Floyd High School in Long Island, was suspended Tuesday after attending in-person classes when he was supposed to follow them virtually from home. After one of the teachers noticed he was not on the list of students for in-person teaching, he was told to go to the principal’s office where they told him to leave the school’s premises, to...

    The vast majority of people don’t plan on watching NFL games if players kneel, according to a Twitter poll. The first game of the 2020 season is Thursday night when the Chiefs and Texans play, and there’s a good chance we could see players kneel during the national anthem. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) I asked people in a Twitter poll if they’d tune out in the event of kneeling, and the results weren’t close at all. Of the 4,850 voters, 86.7% voted that they would stop watching if...

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, during a segment Tuesday night, took a swipe at Trump supporters and poor white people, whom they labeled “suckers,” and claimed that American Christians enjoy a “privilege” unlike any other religious group in the country. Lemon declared that “America has a problem with race” while Cuomo suggested President Trump is “scaring white people” for his “political advantage” because “scaring white people works.” Lemon said poor white people are being “pitted against” other races and taken advantage of by wealthy white people. “They’re playing for a sucker,” Cuomo said, referring to working-class white people.

    CNN appears to have altered a widely-seen photograph of Joe Biden with his young son to remove the logo of the Washington Redskins. The Democratic nominee and former vice president initially shared the photo in June to commemorate Father's Day. CNN PANNED FOR ON-AIR GRAPHIC READING 'FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTEST' IN FRONT OF KENOSHA FIRE However, when CNN featured the photograph in its Monday night special "Fight for the White House: Joe Biden's Long Journey," the Redskins logo was removed from the hat. CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.
