    October 20 2020 Memorial of Saint Paul of the Cross, priest Twenty-ninth Tuesday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 474 Reading 1 EPH 2:12-22 Brothers and sisters: You were at that time without Christ, alienated from the community of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have become near by the Blood of Christ. For he is our peace, he made both one and broke down the dividing wall of enmity, through his Flesh, abolishing the law with its commandments and legal...
  • Documents acquired by Fox News appear to show Hunter Biden's signature on $85 receipt for repair of laptops left at Delaware store at center of email scandal - while other paperwork reveals FBI's contact with owner

    Documents appear to show Hunter Biden's signature on a receipt for $85 at a Delaware computer shop where he dropped off laptops that included details of his international business deals. Last week a New York Post report claimed that Hunter Biden’s laptop was abandoned at the computer shop in April 2019 for months and was found to contain e-mails that purportedly implicate Joe Biden in his son's international business dealings during his time as Vice President. The laptop's hard drive was later obtained by the FBI and Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who shared its contents with the Post. A...

    The following contains editorial content written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. — RICHMOND, VA- The pure “genius” of the Virginia General Assembly knows no bounds. One of the leading indicators of a drunk driver at night is a car that is operating with no lights on. Criminals who are casing neighborhoods for burglaries also like to cruise around with their lights off. Under a law passed by the General Assembly, police officers would no longer be able to use operating without lights lit as probable cause to conduct a traffic stop....

    TROY, Mich. (AP) — She walks with the determination of a person who believes the very fate of democracy might depend on the next door she knocks on, head down, shoulders forward. She wears nothing fussy, the battle fatigues of her troupe: yoga pants and sneakers. She left her Lincoln Aviator idling in the driveway, the driver door open -- if this house wasn’t the one to save the nation, she can move quickly to the next. For most of her life, until 2016, Lori Goldman had been politically apathetic. Had you offered her $1 million, she says, she could...

    CNN pundit Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended for "accidentally flashing his penis during a Zoom call with colleagues," and reportedly also masturbating. VICE spoke with two anonymous people who were on the call which was an election simulation featuring the New Yorker’s most prolific journalists, with Toobin reportedly playing the courts. Both sources said they saw Toobin “jerking off.” The simulation included a strategy session with a break of about 10 minutes. Toobin has since apologized and told the news outlet: "I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera.

    Actress Francia Raisa posted a hysterical video from her car on Sunday after allegedly getting “boxed in” by a pro-Trump car parade, seemingly accusing supporters of targeting her because she’s of Mexican descent and then “laughing” at her, apparently from inside their vehicles. “I was just on the 405 and I got stuck in that stupid Trump rally and they f***ing boxed me in and they’re pointing at me and laughing at me, saying, ‘haha,” the actress said in hysterics. “And literally, I almost crashed because they wouldn’t let me out. I was trying to go around it, and they...

    Fusion power is the technology that is 30 years away, and always will be, according to skeptics, at least. Despite its difficult transition into a reliable power source, the nuclear reactions that power the sun have a wide variety of uses in other fields. The concept fusion drive, called a direct fusion drive (or DFD), is in development at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). Though still under development, the engine itself exploits many of the advantages of aneutronic fusion, most notably an extremely high power-to-weight ratio. The fuel for a DFD drive can vary slightly in mass and contains...

    Joe Buck and Troy Aikman were caught on a hot mic mocking the military pregame flyover: TROY AIKMAN: That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover. JOE BUCK: That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work! AIKMAN: That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner. Well, Aikman may have a point if Biden makes it across the finish line.

    Blah ... blah ... blah ... ... few in either party rule out the possibility of Trump surprising again in the Rust Belt, even if polls are more favorable for Biden now than Clinton then. "My sense of what I see particularly in rural parts of the state and smaller cities is that the Trump vote is more energized now than it was four years ago," says Mark Graul, a Wisconsin-based Republican strategist who ran George W. Bush's campaign there in 2004. Privately, some Democratic operatives who are closely watching the early voting totals say they see worrisome signs that...

    EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Zachery Ty Bryan, the actor who played the oldest son on the long-running 1990s sit-com “Home Improvement” was arrested in Oregon and faces charges of strangulation and assault. The Eugene Police Department said officers were dispatched to a North Eugene apartment Friday night on a report of a physical dispute. They found Bryan, 39, sitting outside and his girlfriend, 27, at a neighboring apartment. Bryan reportedly assaulted the victim, impeded her breathing, and took her phone away when she tried to call 911, police said. The victim declined medical assistance.

    From the perspective of late-night joke writers, there’s really only one person running for president. A staggering 97% of the jokes Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon told about the candidates in September targeted President Donald Trump, a study released Monday found. That’s 455 jokes about Trump and 14 about Democrat Joe Biden, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University. That doesn’t even count 64 jokes made about Trump’s family or administration, the study said. “When Trump’s onstage, everyone else is blacked out,” said Robert Lichter, communication professor at George Mason. He’s been studying late-night...

    A U.S. appeals court on Monday dealt Ghislaine Maxwell a blow by refusing to block the release of a deposition she gave concerning her relationship with the late financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said there was a presumption the public had a right to see Maxwell’s 418-page deposition, which was taken in April 2016 for a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit against her. In an unsigned order, the court also said U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in Manhattan did not abuse her discretion in rejecting Maxwell’s “meritless arguments” that her...

You can compare to 2016 turnout (or even 2016 Trump votes, or 2016 Clinton votes). You can also compare to all EV in general or compare the split (the split is active by default). If you compare via turnout, you can filter by party - Democrat, NPA (unaffliated), Rep. You can narrow by voting method (in-person, vote by mail, both). Have fun! Click here for the map
  • Dems in Absolute Panic As Early Data Shatters Narrative in Key States

    Top Trade Guru ^ | 10/19/2020
    Up until this weekend, the Democratic victory narrative has been this: Dems will outperform in early and mail in voting. Republicans, leerier to mail-in voting, will opt for in person voting and will outperform on election day. However, in the end, the in-person voting will not be enough to overcome the massive early voting numbers by the Democrats. This weekend that narrative shattered in some key states. It’s absolute panic. Politico’s lead story today contains this revealing quote about many anxiety-ridden memos in Democratic offices: Michigan is chief among the Democrats’ worries. With 25% of the total vote in, compared...

    The Political Insider ^ | 10/18/2020 | Wayne Dupree
    I am not surprised at the polls that have Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden up by a few skyscrapers. In fact, I expect this kind of behavior from the Dems. The funny thing is, the Democrats truly think that by protecting Biden from the real Americans, they can quietly slip him into the White House as president. A rude awakening is in store for them when Trump wins in a landslide. The more the propaganda wing of the far left loses credibility with the public, the more panicked they become. The more panicked they become, the more insane and over...
