·       As easy as ACB? Judge Amy Coney Barrett just became a new Supreme Court Justice at 8 PM last night on a 52/48 vote. That make three appointments to the court for President Trump and there could be more to come in his next term. Perhaps the best quote: From Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana – “We’re going to confirm Judge Barrett. And Senator Schumer needs to fill out a hurt feelings report and let’s move on.” Just to rub it in, she was sworn in by Justice Clarence Thomas at the White House.

Paul is a very smart guy but is also the epitome of the groupthink coming from the New York investment community who got it dead wrong last time. We’ll see. If he’s right, our world will change. I think he’s dead wrong, and we’ll find out in a few weeks. If so, I hope they have him back on to explain what happened. I might point out that Paul was a Hillary backer in 2016.

·       I’m absolutely stunned how many people are totally unaware of all the news that has come out in the last week about concerning the emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop and the implications for Joe Biden’s candidacy. How can this be? Well, one reason is a near total blackout by the Mainstream Media. Unless you watch Fox News, you may be in the dark. Facebook and Twitter have been censoring it and the network news broadcasts are crickets. Imagine if you will what the coverage would be if instead of Hunter and Joe Biden it was about Don, Jr. and President Trump. It would be on 24/7. The lack of coverage of what looks like one of the biggest cases or... [Read More]

The recent evidence that has emerged of corruption isn’t something pulled out of thin air like the Russia collusion nonsense they tried on Trump. It is emails taken directly from a laptop that belonged to Hunter Biden, which the FBI has sat on for over a year.  This is going to be difficult to deny, although I’m sure the Biden campaign and their media acolytes will take their best shot. We may finally have something that even a complicit media can’t sweep under the rug. The New York Post had a follow-up article. There is a reference in the one of the... [Read More]

Heard some of the dumbest comments I’ve ever heard emanate from politicians’ mouths. These people are unbelievable. Sen. Coons (D-DE) played the religion card. Sen. Danang Dick Blumenthal (D-CT) was his usual disgusting self and Sen. Klobuchar (D-MN) flat out lied. Thankfully, Sen. Hawley (R[JW1] -MO) and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) pretty much eviscerated them.

·       This outstanding video has gone viral, much to the surprise of the young lady who posted it on her Facebook page. She is a former liberal Democrat who has embraced the #walkaway movement. She is a resident of Los Angeles and her parting comment is “I would LOVE to get out of LA! Holy moly I think about it every day! My dream is to meet a SENSIBLE guy and hightail it to Texas. Yeehaw!” If I were a bachelor and a much younger man, I would reach out to her. I hope my Texas son reads this.

·       You’d think it possible to find a competent, unbiased debate moderator. This one actually wrote a book that was a peon to Nancy Pelosi. The two vice-presidential candidates offered a pretty clear dichotomy. If you have trouble figuring out which one might be most able to step in if necessary, I don’t think you’re paying attention. By the way, someone lied about the little story told about Abe Lincoln. The post debate polls were pretty consistent.  I listened to the various panels of talking heads giving their take and wondered if they had watched the same debate I did.

As I’ve pointed out, there is a huge difference between Absentee Voting and All-Mail Voting.  An absentee voter requests a ballot, that ballot is mailed to him, he fills it out and mails it back to election officials. All-mail voting, on the other hand, involves election officials sending out unsolicited ballots to every registered voter. "The voter may already be planning to vote in person, may have moved from the jurisdiction, or may even be deceased," the report notes. Soon some states will be awash in unsolicited ballots.

·     I’ve never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but recent events have caused me to reassess that. The level-headed and intelligent commentators on PowerLine are willing to consider the unthinkable. As they said, “Four years ago who would have believed the DOJ, FBI and CIA would team up to support their favored candidate, and failing that, would try to disable the incoming administration. It happened and was highly successful due to the predictable behavior of the Democratic Party and its news branch at the New York Times, Washington Post, and so on.”
