The coronavirus pandemic is grounding Joe Biden’s campaign. The former vice president’s campaign team hasn’t booked any air travel, leaving no need to lease a plane to jet around the country for political rallies, Axios reported on Monday. With many swing states limiting the sizes of public gatherings, the Biden campaign is betting that adhering to health guidelines paves a path to the presidency. It also allows Biden, who will accept the Democratic presidential nomination at a convention being held virtually, to contrast himself with President Trump, who will be flying on Air Force One for campaign hangar rallies in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Arizona this week.

Nearly half of Joe Biden’s backers said they plan to mail in a ballot for their candidate, while two-thirds of President Trump’s supporters plan to vote in person on Nov. 3, according to a poll released Monday.

The St. Louis couple who wielded firearms while Black Lives Matter protesters gathered outside their mansion will make an appearance at the Republican National Convention next week, a report said Monday. Personal injury attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey are expected to express their support for President Trump during the virtual weeklong event, party officials told the Washington Post. A spokesman for the convention declined to comment on the appearance to the Post. The couple shot to nationwide attention in June when they were filmed pointing a handgun and an AK-47 at civil rights demonstrators moving through their swanky neighborhood.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has agreed to testify before Congress next week amid allegations from Democrats that he is undermining the cash-strapped US Postal Service ahead of the November election. House Oversight Committee chairwoman Rep. Carolyn Maloney wrote to DeJoy on Sunday calling for an “urgent” hearing on cost-cutting changes at the USPS, sparking fears it could slow delivery and impinge on Americans’ ability to cast postal votes. DeJoy, a Trump appointee who came into the role in May this year, agreed to appear before the committee on Monday, Aug. 24 at 10 a.m.

An overwhelming majority of Americans say having Sen. Kamala Harris on the Democratic presidential ticket won’t make a difference in how they vote, a poll released Monday said. Seventy-one percent of respondents said the California lawmaker won’t impact their choice, while 17 percent said her appearance makes them more likely to vote for the Democratic ticket and 10 percent said it makes them less likely to vote for the Democrats, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll. The survey, released on the first day of the Democratic National Convention, also shows that enthusiasm has been building for former Vice President Joe Biden,
Miracle – Obama Gang, Radical Democrats,
Turkey and Iran Hate It 4 replies
Last week President Trump announced a peace deal in the Middle East between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Experts have widely praised the first Middle East peace deal in decades while the Obama gang, Democrats, Turkey and Iran hate it.
The historic peace treaty was signed this week. Reuters reported that phone lines opened between Israel and the UAE soon after the agreement was signed: The UAE and Israeli foreign ministers held their first publicly-acknowledged call on Sunday after the Gulf state opened telephone lines to Israel as part of a normalisation of ties. Middle East expert John Carafano also praised the President’s efforts:
No One Was Demanding to “Defund the
Police” There. 13 replies
Sadly, as you probably might have guessed, it was only a handful of Antifa protesters, and they relied upon a ring of Sturgis Police officers to keep them safe from the crown which would have likely “tarred and feathered” them — hey, it’s all black — had they had the chance. That is right up to the point where the Antifa leader decided he wanted to incite the crowd, so the Sturgis Police took him down. [Video] This seems to be the only incident that took place, and the Police were well prepared to not let things get out of hand.

socialism’ of the left 11 replies

No Longer Canceled 6 replies
The 9/11 Memorial and Museum announced that the annual “Tribute in Light” — an artistic light installation that projects twin beams into the Manhattan skyline as a memorial to the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks — actually won’t be cancelled this year after all. “For the last eight years the 9/11 Memorial & Museum has produced the Tribute in Light and we recognize the profound meaning it has for so many New Yorkers. This year, its message of hope, endurance, and resilience are more important than ever,” said museum president Alice Greenwald in a statement. “In the last 24 hours we’ve had conversations with many interested parties
The new Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Democratic ticket debuted in Delaware on Aug. 12, followed by the typically frantic partisan sugar-sculpting competition on cable “news.” But MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell took the saccharine prize by claiming that there was not a single false utterance in 35 minutes. The energetic promoters of “independent fact-checkers” — who want “real-time” fact-checking of President Donald Trump — couldn’t muster any effort to evaluate this thunderclap of leftist rhetoric echoing in a nearly empty high school gym. Let’s list a few fact-mangling whoppers. Start with Biden.
A Sinister Effect: Inducing Submission 22 replies
In a piece originally titled “There’s A Sinister Reason Coloring Books Are So Popular In Quarantine,” a professor who teaches the history of art, ideas, and technology at Stanford University and also writes for The Guardian and Vogue posits a unique take: “What if the recent popularity of coloring books comes not from the creativity they purportedly inspire, but from the submission they induce?” In the piece, later retitled “The Dark, Forgotten History of Coloring Books,” Emanuele Lugli asserts, “This, after all, has been their mission from the start. It may be lost to the fans of coloring books that their success peaked in the 19th century,
