Workers With Our Ballots 48 replies
If you are queasy about entrusting the U.S. Postal Service with a vastly expanded role in our electoral system in the midst of a crucial election, the following news will exacerbate your nausea. Last Friday, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) followed the lead of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) by endorsing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Thus far, most objections to increasing the role of the USPS in the election process involve the inevitable logistical problems that will accompany a precipitous expansion of mail-in voting. The addition of overt partisanship among postal workers to inefficiency renders it obvious that the widespread expansion of vote-by-mail is dangerous.
Worse Than Hillary Clinton 37 replies
Making someone as extreme as Kamala Harris a president-in-waiting is a bone-chilling prospect. No conservative or moderate should support it. I part company with some of my colleagues in that I don’t find Kamala Harris personally irritating. She’s attractive, youthful (she looks 15 years younger than her actual age, which is 55), and presentable. Her voice is neither a hectoring Midwestern drone (like Hillary Clinton’s) nor does it have the prissy professorial condescension of Elizabeth Warren’s. Her voice is fine, albeit a bit nasal. It’s Harris’s policies that repel me. While I tend to view “Flight 93” thinking as hyperbolic, she does present a major threat to the constitutional order,
how Jill CHEATED with his ‘so-called
friend’ Joe and says they’ve LIED about how
they started dating for years 33 replies
Joe Biden and his wife Jill have lied to the world for more than 40 years about how they started dating — they actually had an affair that broke up her first marriage, her first husband claims. And the whole story the Bidens tell about how the presidential candidate fell in love with Jill after a blind date is completely made up, Bill Stevenson told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview. Now Stevenson is about to publish a book that he says will blow the lid off the sham story.
first court hearing this morning
after being arrested
and jailed last Friday 27 replies
New media reporter Millie Weaver is scheduled to have her first court hearing this morning after a weekend in jail following her arrest last Friday. Weaver’s arrest came on the eve of the release of her 82-minute documentary Shadow Gate that is an exposé of the Deep State with the assistance of two individuals identified as whistleblowers. Her arrest and incarceration in the Portage County Jail in Ravenna, Ohio immediately raised suspicions that she was being subjected to a scary new level of intimidation and censorship. Millennial Millie, as Weaver is known, is a conservative rising star on the new and alternative media landscape
‘decadent and bourgeois’ pet dogs for
‘restaurant meat’ as the country is
rocked by food shortages 24 replies
Kim Jong-un has declared that pet dogs are a symbol of capitalist ‘decadence’ and ordered that dogs in Pyongyang be rounded up – and owners are fearful that their beloved pets are being used to solve the nation’s food shortages. Dictator Kim announced in July that owning a pet is now against the law, denouncing having a dog at home as ‘a tainted trend of bourgeois ideology’. ‘Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down’, a source told South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper
Biden, new poll shows 22 replies
A new national poll released on the eve of the two major political party conventions indicates Democratic challenger Joe Biden with a smaller lead over President Trump than most other live telephone operator surveys show. The ticket of Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris of California – whom the former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee named as his running mate last week – tops the ticket of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence 50%-46% among registered voters in a CNN survey conducted August 12-15. The 4-point advantage for the Democratic ticket is right at the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Biden to Back Tax Hike to Pay for Free
Health Insurance, College Tuition 21 replies
Joe Biden has thrown his support behind free health insurance and college, saying in an Elle magazine interview with rap star Cardi B that “there’s no reason why we can’t have all of that.” And who will foot the bill? Taxpayers, of course, with the presidential candidate saying that “no corporation should pay less than 15 percent tax.” Biden made his remarks in response to Cardi B’s wish list for what she wants from the winner of November’s presidential election. “I have a whole list of things that I want our next president to do for us,” the 27-year-old, anti-Trump rapper said. “What I want is free Medicare.
after making him crash truck: video 20 replies
A mob of Portland Black Lives Matter and Antifa militants forced a white man to crash his truck, then punched and kicked him unconscious, disturbing footage shows. A series of clips on social media shows the victim being surrounded in his white truck at 10:30 p.m. Sunday as others attacked his wife, who was punched and even tackled to the ground during the violent melee. “He didn’t do nothing!” someone could be heard calling as others punched the driver as he sat in his truck, which was also repeatedly kicked. The unidentified driver eventually sped off, with the mob chasing him

touts Joe Biden for president 19 replies
John Kasich is an enlightened convert to the cause of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. Or the former Ohio GOP governor is an apostate Republican.That’s how some Democrats and most Republicans are likely to view Kasich’s convention speech at the virtual Democratic National Convention Monday night.“I’m a lifelong Republican, but that attachment holds second place to my responsibility to my country. That’s why I’ve chosen to appear at this convention. In normal times, something like this would probably never happen, but these are not normal times,” said Kasich, 68.
Kamala Harris A ‘H*’ 19 replies
Left-wing politicos erupted with outrage on Monday over conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh allegedly calling Democratic vice presidential-pick Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) a “h*.” (Tweets) However, despite the viral posts, Mr. Limbaugh never characterized the Democrat as such.Instead, Limbaugh noted that a freelance photographer contracted with the NBA was recently canned for sharing a meme that referred to Harris as a “ho,” referring to former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown “promoting” his past adulterous relationship with Harris and boasting that he helped boost her career.“I have two stories about Kamala Harris,” Limbaugh said Friday.

Will the city that never sleeps ever wake up? Not according to James Altucher, a best-selling author and former hedge-fund manager (and a former MarketWatch columnist), who says that New York City is “dead forever” as its residents come to grips with the reality of the coronavirus pandemic and what it means for the fate of the Big Apple. “I love NYC. When I first moved to NYC, it was a dream come true. Every corner was like a theater production happening right in front of me. So much personality, so many stories,” he wrote in a blog post explaining why his temporary relocation might become more permanent.
