NEW AD: Trump Calls His Supporters "Disgusting People."

Ep 25 Osterholm Update COVID-19: Ripple Effects

He sees things getting worse before they get better. We are not even close to getting out of the woods.

If they get rid of the Affordable Care Act, if we get the Senate, can't we just do a Public Option

at that point?

Should Biden bring up Trump's strange sniffling during the debate?

Maybe throw Trump off? Ask why he normally doesn't do it other than big debates. Get the media talking about the moment?


Polling this election is very similar to Obama vs McCain and way stronger than Obama vs Romney

Trump vs Biden: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_biden-6247.html

Obama vs Romney: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/us/general_election_romney_vs_obama-1171.html

Obama vs McCain was even until the last month when Obama took a huge lead: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2008/president/us/general_election_mccain_vs_obama-225.html

Hillary vs Trump was kind of all over the place but generally closer than Biden vs Trump which seems incredibly stable. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton-5491.html

Will SCOTUS favorite end up disappointing conservatives?

Yahoo News

WASHINGTON — Many Republicans have hailed Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s apparent nominee to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as a dream candidate: a relatively young woman of impeccable conservative credentials. The federal circuit court judge believes that life begins at conception. She is a critic of the Affordable Care Act, the Obama-era health care law that Trump wants badly to dismantle. She has upheld restrictive immigration statutes while protecting corporations from lawsuits.

But she has also been consistently against injecting politics into the business of judging, presenting a potential problem for those who see the Supreme Court as a means of achieving ends not possible through legislation.

“I would have had no interest in the job if the job was about policymaking and about making policy decisions,” she said last year in an address at conservative Hillsdale College. “If we reduce the courts to mere politics, then why do we need them? We already have politicians,” Barrett added a little later. “Courts are not arenas for politics.”

Ret. Adm. on endorsing Biden: Trump is most serious threat in my lifetime'

Dam! This is a text message from my very conservative boss tonight whose son is military

This was sent to several of us and I responded back so the second text is a response to what I wrote:

I've been trying to remain calm and kind of ignore things for a little bit but I'm really fired up and pissed off again tonight. Just saw an update a news conference through Fox News with Trump talking about not maybe relinquishing power if you loses the election and constantly acting like mail-in ballots is going to be nothing but a big fraud. Which is total b******* we've had mail in ballots for decades we've never had any widespread problems. U.s. mail handles two and a half BILLION pieces of mail every Christmas they can handle hundred million ballots for voting, even if half are mailed in .this whole thing is bull shit, this is what dictators do. When will the right and Christians stand up for what's right.. Before civil war breaks out. Damn I'm really pissed. Thanks for letting me vent, good night.

His second response. His son is in the military and I took out his name:

I agree, (took out name) is going to be home this weekend, I'm going to ask him about military contingency plans if this thing goes south. I don't know if Biden is our cure for everything but Trump is such a narcissistic asshole he's got to go.... He's a dumb fuck.. Sorry guys about the rank. I thought I was listening to sadam Hussain for a minute there..oh it was Trump

Recorded attack on Black runner is charged as a hate crime (with video)

Sept. 23, 2020, 9:48 AM MDT
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — A woman who was captured on video hurling a bottle and a racial slur at a Black runner in New York City has been charged with attempted assault as a hate crime and aggravated harassment, authorities said Tuesday.

Lorena Delaguna, 53, was arraigned in Queens criminal court on charges stemming from the Aug. 17 confrontation with Tiffany Johnson.

“Crimes like this, which are fueled by hate, are in a special category for a reason,” Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said in a written statement. “No one should have to endure being called a vile slur or being attacked simply because of the color of their skin, their religion, or who they love.”
