  • Blowout US economic growth in summer is already fading

    The Associated Press ^ | October 29, 2020 | By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER
    Americans may feel whiplashed by a report Thursday on the economy’s growth this summer, when an explosive rebound followed an epic collapse. The government will likely estimate that the economy grew faster on an annualized basis last quarter than in any such period since record-keeping began in 1947. Just be forewarned: The sizzling pace won’t last. The economy is weakening and facing renewed threats. Confirmed viral cases are surging. Hiring has sagged. Government stimulus has run out. And even last quarter’s outsize growth will leave the economy far below its level before the pandemic struck in March. “The strength of...
  • Time to move on: Beijing’s aggression has made India’s diffidence about alignment obsolete {Trump diplomacy victory}

    Chinese aggression has made it impossible for New Delhi to continue with its usual ‘engagement where possible’ refrain, because there are hardly any areas where engagement seems possible between the Asian neighbours. Trade,technology, Taiwan and Tibet, every aspect of their bilateral engagement seems to be in play at the moment. In the last few weeks itself, we have seen the Quadrilateral security grouping comprising the US, Japan, Australia and India emerge out of irrelevance into something concrete. By finally inviting Australia to the Malabar exercises, there’s now an attempt to give the so-called Quad a military quotient. India is...

    President Donald Trump will benefit from a surge in voter turnout amongst his supporters and win the election with over 300 electoral college votes, according to Sky News contributor Cory Bernardi. “And that will send - of course – the left absolutely ballistic,” he said.

  • Girl Scouts spark outrage with since-deleted post congratulating Amy Coney Barrett

    New York Post ^ | October 28, 2020 | Henry Kline
    The Girl Scouts of America on Wednesday congratulated Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett on her appointment, but deleted the social media posts after sweeping criticism. The Scouts’ Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts featured an image of Barrett and the first four women justices to serve on the nation’s highest court. That includes Sandra Day O’Connor, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose death last month paved the way for President Donald Trump to nominate Barrett. “Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789,” the group tweeted...

    New York Times ^ | Oct. 27, 2020 | Ross Douthat
    It should be possible to cover revelations about the Biden family that are neither disinformation nor the greatest scandal of our time.[cut] More specifically, Bobulinski’s story and the email evidence both suggest that Joe Biden took at least enough interest in his son’s dealings to have a meeting during the Trump presidency with his business partners. This isn’t proof that he partnered with Hunter or profited in any way, but it seems like evidence that he wasn’t particularly worried about keeping his son’s sketchy salesmanship at arm’s length. That seems like information worth knowing: not a scandal on a par...

    Having a Christmas party could land you on the “naughty” list. Police chiefs in the UK warned that family holiday gatherings may be broken up if they flout coronavirus restrictions. Top cops in the counties of West Midlands and Merseyside said officers will intervene if they get reports of COVID-19 rule-breaking over the festive period, The Daily Mail reported. “If we think there’s large groups of people gathering where they shouldn’t be, then police will have to intervene,” David Jamieson, the West Midlands police and crime commissioner, told The Telegraph. “It’s not the police’s job to stop people enjoying their...
  • China Outshines U.S. as First Major Economy to Recover From Pandemic (MSM pro-China propaganda with fake statistics - proof inside)

    China's economy is leading the charge for a global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, overshadowing the United States which continues to reel from a rising number of COVID-19 cases. The world's second-largest economy grew 4.9 percent between July and September compared to the same quarter last year, according to government data. But economists had expected growth of 5.2 percent. During the first quarter of the year, China's economy shrank by 6.8 percent as the pandemic closed factories and manufacturing plants. It was China's first economic contraction since the recording of quarterly GDP data began in 1992. Yi Gang, China's central...
  • 'Bachelorette' broadcast in Detroit mistakenly airs 2020 election results favoring Trump in Michigan

    Viewers who tuned in to Tuesday’s episode of “The Bachelorette” in Detroit were shocked to see results mistakenly displayed on screen for next week’s presidential election. As the drama unfolded between Clare and Yosef on the reality show, viewers took to social media to note that WXYZ-TV seemed to accidentally post 2020 election results during the broadcast on the left side of the screen. The display showed President Donald Trump had defeated his opponent, Joe Biden, in the state. It also showed projections for several other local races despite Election Day being a week away. WXYZ-TV told Fox news in...
  • 12 reasons to fear Kamala Harris becoming vice president — and likely president

    lifesitenews ^ | 10/28/2020 | Lianne Laurence / Mary Rose
    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s running mate is a ruthlessly ambitious political opportunist whose principles appear to shift — except on abortion. If Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is elected president of the United States on November 3, given his age, general frailty, and evident cognitive deterioration, he may run the country for not even a full single term. And in that case, vice president Kamala Harris will take over. Indeed, President Donald Trump was not alone in suggesting that the real reason House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) introduced a 25th Amendment commission on removing a “mentally unfit” president was...

    The American Policy Center ^ | October 28, 2020 | Kathleen Marquardt
    In my previous article, Aufheben der Kultur/Cancel Culture, was this paragraph: Why do Western Culture and Christianity both have to be annihilated? Western Culture represents the reasoning, logical, fair and openminded aspects of our world. Out of Western Culture sprang the United States Constitution, the framework of the nation. And the Christian religious traditions, especially the Ten Commandments, are the underlying pillars of Western Culture. As Antonio Gramsci wrote in his prison notebooks, “Any country grounded in Judaeo-Christian values can’t be overthrown until those roots are cut … Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity … in the...

  • Germany and France announce new lockdowns as coronavirus cases spike in Europe

    Both Germany and France announced new nationwide lockdowns on Wednesday as Europe enters a deadly new phase of the coronavirus pandemic. Chancellor Angela Merkel says German officials have agreed to a four-week shutdown of restaurants, bars, cinemas, theaters and other leisure facilities in a bid to curb a sharp rise in coronavirus infections. Merkel and the country's 16 state governors, who are responsible for imposing and easing restrictions, agreed on the partial lockdown in a videoconference Wednesday. It is set to take effect Monday and last until the end of November. Merkel said, "We must act, and now, to avoid...
  • Masks Are a Distraction From the Pandemic Reality. Viruses inevitably spread, and authorities have oversold face coverings as a preventive measure.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 28, 2020 | Joseph A. Ladapo
    A hallmark of Covid-19 pandemic policy has been the failure of political leaders and health officials to anticipate the unintended consequences of their actions. This tendency has haunted many decisions, from lockdowns that triggered enormous unemployment and increased alcohol and drug abuse, to school closures that are widening educational disparities between rich and poor families. Mask mandates may also have unintended consequences that outweigh the benefits. First, consider how the debate has evolved and the underlying scientific evidence. Several randomized trials of community or household masking have been completed. Most have shown that wearing a mask has little or no...
