    This election is looking more like a Democratic tsunami than simply a Blue wave. President Trump, mired in some of the lowest job approval ratings of his presidency, is trailing Biden by significant margins in key battleground states like Pennsylvania (8 points), Michigan (9 points), and Wisconsin (9 points). He’s even running behind Biden in his firewall states of Florida and North Carolina.
  • THE STATE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE AS AT JULY 2020

    At the present time the polls look bad for President Trump. How bad? Credible polls show him 10 points behind Biden, and struggling in key swing states as well as what should be easy states, like Georgia. His campaign seems listless at the moment, lacking a clear message or strategy for turning around his bad poll numbers. ThereÂ’s a story up on Fox News wondering whether Trump might drop out of the race. Is this story based on anything? Since we know Trump follows Fox, this might be a planted story in hopes that it will shake him up...

    President Trump removed Sunday his retweet of a protest video that showed a supporter yelling “white power,” a comment that the White House said he never heard. “President Trump is a big fan of The Villages. He did not hear the one statement made on the video,” said White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere. “What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters.” The two-minute video taken at The Villages, a retirement community in Florida, showed anti-Trump protesters yelling at Trump supporters as they rolled by in golf carts decorated with pro-Trump signs and American flags. After...

  • Trump says he 'absolutely' would support Colin Kaepernick getting second shot in NFL despite kneeling controversy.

    President Trump lent some support Wednesday to former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, saying he "would love to see him get another shot" if he still has the skills to play in the league. During an interview with Sinclair correspondent Scott Thuman, Trump was asked about Kaepernick, the then-San Francisco 49er who sparked a national debate in 2016 when he protested police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem, and whether or not the president believes Kaepernick "should get another shot in the NFL." "If he deserves it, he should. If he has the playing ability," Trump said. "He started off...

  • Trump's niece is publishing a tell-all book that says she leaked tax documents to help The New York Times investigate the president's finances

    President Donald Trump's niece Mary L. Trump is publishing a book that will reveal herself to be the primary source of a New York Times investigation into the president's finances, The Daily Beast reported. Mary Trump will say she supplied The Times with confidential family tax documents, The Daily Beast said. The Times investigation later revealed that the president wasn't a self-made man but had his father bolster his failing businesses in the 1990s with hundreds of millions of dollars. Mary Trump is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the president's older brother who died in 1981 at the age...

    US Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy and Secretary of Defense Mark Esper are said to be open to holding a "bipartisan conversation" about renaming nearly a dozen major bases and installations that bear the names of Confederate military commanders, according to an Army official. The official said that though McCarthy believes he has the potential authority to unilaterally rename the installations, there would need to be consultation with the White House, Congress and state and local governments.

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper declared Wednesday that despite President Trump's remarks earlier this week, he is not in favor of the president invoking the Insurrection Act in order to send the U.S. military to quell violent protests. During a morning press briefing, Esper addressed controversies surrounding Trump's stance on violence and looting that has broken out across the country in the aftermath of George Floyd's death, coinciding with other peaceful protests. "The option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire...

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 27, 2020 | Anthony Leonardi
    Comedienne Kathy Griffin must delete her tweets calling for violence against President Trump or get stuck in Twitter jail. A Twitter spokeswoman confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Wednesday that Griffin's initial tweet, advocating for somebody to plunge an air-filled syringe into Trump, violates company rules on abusive behavior. "We've required the account owner to delete it before continuing back to Twitter," the spokeswoman said in an email. On Tuesday, Griffin tweeted about plunging a syringe "with nothing but air inside it" into Trump in reaction to a tweet from CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta that noted how the...

    Ann Coulter went on an early Sunday morning Twitter tear, ripping Donald Trump, calling him “the most disloyal actual retard that has ever set foot in the Oval Office.” The far-right media pundit and former Trump defender was triggered by the president’s Friday tweet in which he called for Alabama voters to “not trust Jeff Sessions” and instead put their support behind Sessions’ republican Senate seat challenger, football coach Tommy Tuberville. “3 years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began. Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. He let our Country down. That’s why I endorsed Coach...
  • Bumbling Joe Biden gaffes his way through COVID-19 roundtable as he falsely claims '85,000 jobs have been lost in the US and millions of Americans have died' since pandemic began

    Presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden bumbled his way through a ‘virtual roundtable’ he hosted on Thursday afternoon, as questions regarding the former Vice President’s mental acuity continue to mount. Concern of Biden’s mental sharpness has been the subject of constant debate ever since he launched his White House bid last April, following a number of blunders he's made during televised interviews and campaign speeches in the months since. And the self-proclaimed ‘gaffe machine’ did little to mitigate those apprehensions during a monologue about soaring unemployment levels on Thursday, in which he wrongly claimed 85,000 jobs have been lost in...

    Failed 2018 Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams did an “interview” with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday that was, like most interviews she’s done, designed to beef up her alleged vice presidential qualifications at a critical time when Joe Biden’s VP “selection” committee are helping him decide who his running mate will be. During the segment, Amanpour twice mentioned the fact that Abrams was “pitching” herself as the most viable option for Biden to pick, talking about how she was out there “auditioning” for the position and showing her “resume” because of what she (Abrams) “feels” is her “right as...

    The Democrats are taking their stand on the coronavirus crisis in an untenable position. It is like building a defensive redoubt in a valley surrounded by hills in the hands of the enemy (like the French at Dien Bien Phu in 1955, as President Eisenhower warned them). Whether this is tactical stupidity by the president’s enemies or strategic genius by the president or — more likely — a bit of both, is not clear except to insiders. Readers will recall that the Democrats charged out of the gate on the issue of taking science seriously and reacting comprehensively; the president...

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes that despite the negative impact the coronavirus outbreak has had on the U.S., it will result in ‘world-changing’ innovation – and possibly his own run at the presidency. [cut] “People aren’t going to just venture outside. They're not going to go to large gatherings. They're not going to feel confident right off the bat. There’s going to be a lot of trepidation. And that concern is going to lead to people holding back on spending money.” [cut] “When the scientists say it’s safe for my employees to come back to work, that’s when I’ll...

    It’s often said that most of what the academic elites call “philosophy” is nothing but some underutilized minds worrying themselves about questions that common-sense folk find obvious. The saying came to mind as I listened recently to some of these folks straining to fit their various theories to the Age of Trump. More precisely, they were double-helixing themselves trying to explain why the amoral, relativist, truth-denying theories they’ve championed for so long are actually good reasons for hating the supposedly amoral, relativist, truth-defying current President. Listening to this theorizing crystallized (at least for this initially reluctant Trump supporter) why President...
