Carol King, Bad Polls and Good Polls Explained: The Art of Polling

Carol King A lot of election 2020 is mysteriously similar to election 2016. Joe Biden is campaigning heavily in Pennsylvania, even the same places Pittsburgh, Latrobe, Greensburg, and Johnstown where Hillary Clinton campaigned in the final weeks of the 2016 race. He is attracting “white middle class” voters, considered a mainstay of the Trump base, but who was also the type of voter Hillary Clinton was attracting. She only turned out younger and more diverse people when she paired her appearances with a Katy Perry or Bruce Springsteen concert. Mainstream polls are mimicking 2016 too.…

Presidential Debate Debacle Gets Do-Over as Pence Politely Fact-Checks Harris’s Whoppers

By Ben Sellers ‘You’re entitled to your own opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts…’ The grand theme of Wednesday’s only vice presidential debate seemed to be contrasts. It was a word that both Sen. Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence invoked in relation to the differing visions of their respective parties. But the contrast that was undoubtedly in the minds of many was the difference between the two running-mates’ conduct and their respective leaders’ bickering during last week’s presidential debate. The night’s final question, from Utah eighth-grader Brecklin Brown, capped off everyone’s…

Mike Whitney, Betrayal, Infuriating Betrayal

Mike Whitney “The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.” Joseph Conrad Here’s your political puzzler for the day: Which of these two things poses a greater threat to the country. An incompetent and boastful president who has no previous government experience and who is rash and impulsive in his dealings with the media, foreign leaders and his critics? Or a political party that collaborates with senior-level officials in the Intel agencies, the FBI, the DOJ, the media, and…

State of the Nation, An Open Letter to the American Electorate

State of the Nation Dear American Voter, Who in the USA is not brutally aware of how consequential the 2020 POTUS election is? Surely, the outcome of this election will determine the fate of the American people as it will the future of the Republic. We are a group of U.S. citizens. We come from every voting demographic—the right, the left, the center and the unaffiliated. Stated another way, some of us are liberals, some are conservatives, others are independents and still others are completely apolitical. However, we all share…

Marc Theissen, Biden can’t Blame Trump for Anarchy in the Streets

Marc A. Thiessen WASHINGTON — For months, Democrats ignored or excused the chaos engulfing our cities. Sen. Kamala D. Harris, D-Calif., went so far as to raise bail money for those arrested during the riots in Minnesota. The looting and vandalism went completely unmentioned at the Democratic convention. In his acceptance speech, Joe Biden condemned the violence in Charlottesville three years ago, but not the violence that was taking place in Portland, Ore., that very week. Now, all of a sudden, Biden is finally speaking out. What changed? The polls.…

Robert David Steele, Has Wall Street Stolen $100 Trillion from the American Public? Will Donald Trump Get It Back?

Tehran Times TEHRAN – Robert David Steele, a former Marine Corps infantry officer and CIA spy as well as an activist for Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE), contributes regularly to Tehran Times. Q. The above cartoon was published a few days ago by Ben Garrison, America’s most famous conservative cartoonist who has also been ruthlessly defamed and impoverished by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). His cartoons are known to be favored by President Donald Trump. How did you achieve this rather unusual honor and can you explain the cartoon? A. The…

Mollie Hemmingway, Obama, Biden Oval Office Meeting on January 5 was Key to Entire Anti-Trump Operation

By Mollie Hemingway Susan Rice’s bizarre Inauguration Day email about that meeting helps explain the campaign of leaks, lies, and obstruction that followed. Information released in the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the case it brought against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn confirms the significance of a January 5, 2017, meeting at the Obama White House. It was at this meeting that Obama gave guidance to key officials who would be tasked with protecting his administration’s utilization of secretly funded Clinton campaign research, which alleged Trump was involved in a treasonous…

Patrick J. McShay, You Might Live In A Police State If…

by Patrick J. McShay “I think perhaps of all the things a police state can do to its citizens; distorting history is possibly the most pernicious” — Robert A. Heinlein-Author, Engineer, and Naval Officer “The Free State offers what a police state denies – The privacy of the home, the dignity, and peace of mind of the individual” — William O. Douglas- Supreme Court Justice There are new stories emerging on a daily basis during this forced lockdown of ridiculous and unnecessary actions being taken by city and state officials as well as police departments…

Brandon Smith, Pandemic And Economic Collapse: The Next 60 Days

by Brandon Smith The news cycle moves so quickly these days writing analysis on current events becomes difficult; the moment you publish an examination of the situation people have already moved on to the next disaster. So, today I’m not going to do that. Instead, let’s look at current trends and project what is likely to happen in the next couple of months. In my article ‘How The Pandemic Crisis Will Probably Develop Over The Next Year’ published in early March, I outlined what I believed would be the major developments on a…
