    The Democratic challenger for the closely fought South Carolina senate seat, Jaime Harrison, has said voters in his state will punish the Republican incumbent Lindsey Graham at the ballot box for his reversal on pledges—such as the one he made not to back a Supreme Court candidate during election year.

    The Los Angeles Dodgers ended a 32-year wait for a World Series title on Tuesday night, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 in Game 6 to finally lift the Commissioner's Trophy having fallen at the final hurdle twice in the last three seasons. Coming as it did just two weeks after the Los Angeles Lakers ended a 10-year wait for the NBA title, the Dodgers' triumph in the Fall Classic marks the first time since 1988 the Lakers and the Dodgers can both call themselves world champions in the same year. Away from the sporting arena, the Dodgers' World Series...

    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...
  • Why Won't Joe Biden Repudiate Anti-Semitic Democrats? | Opinion

    Newsweek ^ | 10/14/20 | Bruce Abramson and Jeff Ballabon
    At the first debate, Joe Biden took ownership of today's Democrats with an uncharacteristically clear proclamation: "I am the Democratic Party." With that, Biden assumed responsibility for repudiating and distancing himself from the anti-Semitism surging through his party's ranks. Anti-Semitism has been on full display among Democratic leaders and left-wing protest groups alike in recent years. Leaders of the Women's March, for example, proved so undeniably anti-Semitic that even former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz felt compelled to distance herself. Yet those same anti-Semites—Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory—were featured speakers at this summer's Democratic convention. The Women's March since recruited new...

    Senator Tina Smith (D-Minn.) is in a statistical dead heat with her GOP challenger Jason Lewis less than two weeks before Election Day, according to a new poll. A SurveyUSA poll released Wednesday shows Smith leading Lewis, a former congressman whose candidacy has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, by only 1 percent. It found that 43 percent of voters favored Smith compared to 42 percent for Lewis. Another 12 percent said they were undecided, while 3 percent said they would vote for a third party candidate. Smith's lead is well within the poll's 5 percent margin of error.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday said he hadn't been to the White House in over two months because the Trump administration weren't strictly following coronavirus guidelines and are now "paying the price for it." Speaking to reporters in Kentucky, the Republican leader revealed that he hasn't "actually been to the White House since August the 6th, because my impression was their approach to how to handle this was different from mine, and what I insisted we do in the Senate, which is to wear masks and practice social distancing."

    President Donald Trump's net disapproval rating has slumped by six points since the end of July, but has remained steady over the past month as the coronavirus has continued to spread across the U.S. According to the FiveThirtyEight presidential popularity tracker, 52.9 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump's record in office on average as of Wednesday, while 43.7 percent approved. But back in the end of July, the president's disapproval rating was almost three points higher as 55.8 percent of U.S. adults told pollsters they were unhappy with the commander-in-chief.

    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...
  • Trump Approval Rating Rises Despite Controversial Atlantic Article, Poll Shows

    President Donald Trump's approval rating does not appear to have been impacted by controversy in the wake of a recent Atlantic article claiming he had repeatedly made disparaging remarks about U.S. military members. Trump's job approval rating hit 47 percent in a Hill-HarrisX poll released Tuesday, his highest rating in the poll since June. The poll was conducted online among 2,832 registered voters from September 5 to 8. It has a margin of error of 1.84 percent. Republicans approved of Trump by an 81 percent majority, while 19 percent disapproved. Democrats had nearly opposite ratings, with 82 percent disapproving and...

    A new Texas poll shows that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's lead over President Donald Trump is closing, as Democrats work towards winning the Lone Star State for the first time since 1976. A blue Texas would mean almost certain defeat for Trump, who is already struggling to boost his poll numbers amid the coronavirus pandemic, economic turmoil and nationwide unrest over institutionalized racism and inequality. Democrats are eyeing Texas's 38 Electoral College votes and Sen. John Cornyn's seat, which is also up for grabs on November 3. If challenger Mary Jennings Hegar can unseat Cornyn, it would be a...

    Remdesivir is emerging as a promising treatment for the new coronavirus, and Gilead Sciences has found it works better alone than it does when combined with hydroxychloroquine. Gilead, the pharmaceutical company behind remdesivir, said data showed the drug reduced the risk of mortality by 62 percent, compared with standard of care. In analyzing clinical outcomes of patients, Gilead found those who were treated with only remdesivir had higher rates of recovery than those who were treated with remdesivir and hydroxychloroquine. After a median follow-up of 14 days, 57 percent of patients treated with both remdesivir and hydroxychloroquine recovered, compared with...

    Social media users have condemned merchandise promoting President Donald Trump's re-election campaign, saying it is reminiscent of Nazi imagery. Available for both men and women, a 100-percent cotton T-shirt retailing for $30 carries the words "America First" above an image of an eagle looking to its left with spread out wings and its talons holding a circular version of the American flag. Available on Trump's re-election campaign website, the product description says that it is "proudly made in the USA" and appeals to would-be buyers to show their support for re-electing the incumbent president, with the message: "Let everyone know...

    Despite their roots in reality, there is no doubt that these crises -- and the White House and Senate's attempts to tackle them -- would be reported differently if Hillary Clinton were president. It took more than five years, but the corporate media finally have the tools and strategy to successfully defeat President Donald Trump.The corporate media have these, mind you, despite the Democratic Party, whose foibles, stumbles, and misfires over those same five years have only complicated efforts, kicking off with a disastrous 2016 defeat and eventually culminating in a near-invisible and increasingly senile presidential candidate stumbling through a...

    But the president might not get so lucky this time around. A wave of new polling shows that Trump is doing significantly worse among women than he was four years ago. According to an analysis from the New York Times, Trump trailed Clinton by 14 points among female voters heading into 2016. Today, he's behind expected Democratic nominee Joe Biden by 25 points. "That's a huge falloff and a big problem," said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the center-right American Action Forum. Plus, a key demographic that helped seal Trump's electoral victory is starting to erode. Recent polling shows that white...

    A hospital in France has had to stop an experimental treatment using hydroxychloroquine on at least one coronavirus patient after it became a "major risk" to their cardiac health. The University Hospital Center of Nice (CHU de Nice) is one of many hospitals trialing hydroxychloroquine in COVID-19 patients. It announced it had been selected for the trial on March 22. A statement from the hospital said it was testing four experimental treatments, one of which included hydroxychloroquine. It hoped to establish its effectiveness and side effects of this and the other treatments being tested. In an interview with the French...

    No, Townhall has not gone into competition against The Babylon Bee and The Onion.  And –best we can tell—neither has Newsweek. Here’s the (seemingly satirical—but actually deadly earnest) proclamation by Newsweek-The Daily Beast from this week:   “Cuba has mobilized its medical corps around the world to distribute a new "wonder drug" that officials there say is capable of treating the new coronavirus despite the United States' strict sanctions that continue to pressure the communist-run island…The drug, called Interferon Alpha-2B Recombinant (IFNrec), is jointly developed by scientists from Cuba and China.

    In my last column, "Newsweek Hits a New Low," I wrote about Newsweek's dishonest description of what I had said on one of my weekly PragerU "Fireside Chats." A viewer had asked me to respond to a statement Anne Frank made in her epic Holocaust diary. Frank said, "Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart." The Newsweek headline, "Conservative Radio Host Ridicules Anne Frank," was simply a lie. In order for readers to appreciate the level of mendacity, I had my entire response transcribed and placed it in the column.A few days later I received a...
