for Biden than Trump: poll 55 replies
More active-duty U.S. troops say they’ll vote for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden than President Trump in the November election, a new poll shows, continuing a steady decline in the commander in chief’s favorability ratings among service members. A Military Times survey released Monday found that if the election were held today, 41% of active-duty troops say they’d vote for Mr. Biden, compared to just 37% for the president. Another 13% said they intend to back a third-party candidate, while 9% said they’d skip the presidential election altogether. The Military Times surveyed 1,018 active-duty troops for the poll.
in Portland and calls on
Trump to do the same 47 replies
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is forcefully condemning the violent protests that took one life in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday evening, calling on President Donald Trump to do the same. “The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable,” Biden said in a statement on Sunday. “I condemn this violence unequivocally. I condemn violence of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right. And I challenge Donald Trump to do the same.” Biden is expected to travel to southwestern Pennsylvania on Monday to deliver remarks intended to contrast
identify funders, organizers of violent riots 47 replies
Conservative pressure is mounting on Attorney General William Barr and his Justice Department to ratchet up investigations of violent rioters across the country, specifically to identify those funding and organizing the mayhem. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Calif., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, made weekend appeals for DOJ to take action to cut off funding and logistical support for the groups of rioters that have terrorized and destroyed American cities for months.
Justice Department’s effort to end his case 38 replies
A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department’s moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI.
Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan’s decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department’s dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.
‘I Am Not Banning Fracking’ 33 replies
CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: “I am not banning fracking.”VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. Biden has promised to ban fracking — repeatedly — as has his running mate. Biden said Monday — during a speech supposedly on violence: “I am not banning fracking. Let me say again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.” The problem, for Biden, is that he explicitly promised to ban fracking during the second Democratic Party presidential primary debate on July 31, 2019, in Detroit, Michigan. CNN’s Dana Bash asked him the question directly: Bash: Thank you, Mr. Vice President. Just to clarify,

Donald Trump for linking him to violence and
accuses president of ‘poisoning our very democracy’
in Pittsburgh speech denouncing rival’s leadership 31 replies
Joe Biden ridiculed President Donald Trump for some of the attacks he’s made about the Democrat, while making the case he’s the president who can bring people together, the opposite of Trump, who Biden said was ‘poisoning our very democracy.’ ‘You know me, you know my heart, you know my story, my family story – ask yourself, do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters? Really?’ Biden said from Mill 19, a converted steel mill, on a Monday trip to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, pushing back on team Trump’s assertion that Biden’s a leftist in cahoots with the most destructive protesters.
riot-damaged Minneapolis, St.. Paul
properties delay rebuilding 30 replies
One day after rioters destroyed the Sports Dome retail complex in St. Paul, a construction crew hired by the city knocked the building down because it was dangerously unstable. Then the city presented the property owners with a $140,000 bill for what it would cost to haul away the debris. “We were really upset about that,” said property owner Jay Kim, whose insurance policy covers a maximum of $25,000 in demolition costs. “We thought that was high. But we didn’t know how much demolition would cost at the time.” Like dozens of other investors whose properties were severely damaged in the May riots,
Picked Jacob Blake To Be Their
Saint, They Chose Poorly 27 replies
The officer who shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has been tried and convicted by Democrats, the media, and truth-be-damned activists before the case is resolved. It’s a mirror image of the Michael Brown shooting (the officer was cleared) in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd (the officer has yet to go to trial). The difference is this time, pro athletes, pampered and well-paid, joined the mob.
They should be ashamed of their behavior. They quit on the employers who pay their soaring salaries, and estranged themselves from their fans, who provide the dollars the owners
I have to admit, I came close to titling this, “Guess where Joe Biden will not go on Monday?” to play off Karen’s piece on Trump’s Kenosha visit but decided to pass. Humor is not really my forte if I’m honest, so it makes more sense to go with a different lede. Joe Biden is going to address racial tensions on Monday, but the talk won’t originate from Wisconsin. POLITICO reports Biden’s decision to skip Wisconsin is because of Trump’s visit (emphasis mine).Two sources with knowledge of the former vice president’s travel discussions say that while Biden is expected to travel, he will steer clear

despite Wisconsin governor’s plea 26 replies
President Trump still plans to visit Kenosha this week despite Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers’ letter urging him to call off his trip amid concerns his presence “will only hinder our healing” after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, the White House said. “The White House has been humbled by the outreach of individuals from Kenosha who have welcomed the President’s visit and are longing for leadership to support local law enforcement and businesses that have been vandalized,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement late Sunday, CNN reported. “President Trump looks forward to visiting on Tuesday and helping this great city heal and rebuild,”
