Washington — Joe Biden raised $5.3 million in October in a surge of small-dollar online contributions that rolled in after President Donald Trump launched unfounded attacks against the former vice president over his son's Ukrainian dealings. The swell of cash was raised from through 182,000 donations, with an average amount of about $28, according to figures provided to The Associated Press by Biden's presidential campaign. It comes after his internet fundraising operation stumbled over the summer, leading critics to suggest he lacked grassroots support. (Snip) "People out there are seeing Joe Biden getting attacked day after day.

Comments:

"Unfounded" hahahaha. In the first sentence the writer loses all journalistic integrity. I wonder how much of the "donations" came after other extortion attempts by Quid Pro Joe.

The OP caught the essence of the story right away. "Unfounded attacks". Right! Joe and Hunter are pillars of integrity. Does the writer even recognize his own bias?

Not too good at math. 15 million in 3rd quarter was less than stellar. 5 million in one month is great news! 3 months make a quarter = 15 million in 4th quarter.

'Course most of that is going to campaign advisor -- The Hunter Biden Company. About $5.2 million.

For months, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned itchy Democrats against the perils of impeachment. She should have stuck to her guns. In surrendering to the radicals and the noisy drumbeat of their media handmaidens, Pelosi established a formal investigative process involving the top legislative committees. (Snip) But her surrender proved again that her party can’t quit 2016. Like generals fighting the last war, she and they are now committed to taking their sore-loser grievances to 2020 voters. Dems apparently assume the country hates Trump as much as they do. President Hillary Clinton had no comment on the strategy.

I thought we'd at least get Oprah. President Trump's victory was supposed to be the start of a new era of celebrity politics in America. He proved that a candidate with no political experience but substantial name recognition can win — that fame is, for many Americans, reason enough to give a campaign a serious hearing. For 2020, I anticipated the Democratic Party would respond in kind, and I don't think I'm alone in that expectation. My colleague Matthew Walther made the case this past spring that a celebrity challenger might well be Democrats' strongest tactic against

Once Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed Eagle on the Moon, the Apollo 11 astronauts and their spaceship were actually lost. Oh, Mission Control never lost radio contact with them. But NASA was never able to figure out where, exactly, on the Moon they had set down, while they were on the Moon. And NASA sure did try. (Snip) In the 22½ hours Armstrong and Aldrin were on the Moon in Eagle, NASA never found them. Their crewmate, Michael Collins, was overhead, orbiting the Moon in the command module Columbia.

Late Monday, when Donald Trump’s campaign launch was dominating the news cycle, Disney decided it would be a good time to raise ticket prices … by a lot. An annual pass without blackout dates now costs $899. That means a family of four can either go to Disney — or buy a 2012 Nissan Sentra. Or maybe pay a couple months’ mortgage. Single-day tickets now range from $109 to $159. The craftily timed announcement was masterful PR. Still, news spread quickly. (snip) In fact, Disney is trying to drive some of you away.

There are an estimated 12 million immigrants who are in the United States illegally, mainly from Mexico and Central America.

Seoul, South Korea — North Korea announced that it has test-fired a new type of tactical guided weapon. The Korean Central News Agency says Chairman Kim Jong Un observed the firing of the weapon Wednesday by the Academy of Defense Science. The agency says Kim mounted an observation post to learn about the test-fire of the new-type tactical guided weapon and guide the test-fire. The announcement came after reports of new activity at a North Korean missile research center and long-range rocket site where the North is believed to build long-range missiles targeting the U.S. mainland.

A 5-year-old Woodbury boy remained hospitalized with critical injuries Saturday, one day after he was tossed over a third-floor railing at the Mall of America, allegedly by a stranger with a history of mental health problems. The boy is "still very much with us and fighting," according to a family friend who set up a GoFundMe page that raised $263,000 within hours of being created Saturday. The donations will help pay for his medical and rehabilitation costs, which will include multiple surgeries, organizers said. The boy´s parents declined to comment Saturday, pleading for privacy.

In a long-awaited plan released Friday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) pledged to not raise middle-class taxes to pay for her proposed single-payer health care system. After months of dodging questions about whether she would hike middle-class taxes to pay for Medicare for All, the 2020 candidate made a firm promise to voters about a $52 trillion system involving $20.5 trillion in new federal spending over the next 10 years. "We don't need to raise taxes on the middle class by one penny to finance Medicare for All," Warren wrote in a post detailing her proposal.

For the third time in a row since Common Core was fully phased in nationwide, U.S. student test scores on the nation’s broadest and most respected test have dropped, a reversal of an upward trend between 1990 and 2015. Further, the class of 2019, the first to experience all four high school years under Common Core, is the worst-prepared for college in 15 years, according to a new report. The National Assessment of Educational Progress is a federally mandated test given every other year in reading and mathematics to students in grades four and eight.

Right now, wildfires are scorching tens of thousands of acres in California, choking the air with smoke, spurring widespread prophylactic blackouts, and forcing the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people. Right now, roughly 130,000 Californians are homeless, and millions more are shelling out far more in rent than they can afford, commuting into expensive cities from faraway suburbs and towns, or doubling up in houses and apartments. Wildfires and lack of affordable housing—these are two of the most visible and urgent crises facing California, raising the question of whether the country’s dreamiest, most optimistic state is fast becoming unlivable.

In The Atlantic, Sarah Longwell, executive director for something called Republicans for the Rule of Law, an advocacy group run by NeverTrumps still bitter that Jeb Bush was denied his designated shot to lose to Hillary, drafts a plan for Senate Republicans to finally oust Trump from office. Her man for the job: Senator Romney. The piece reads like a screenwriter optioning a script. There's drama, scuttlebutt, the balancing of ambitions, character conflict, palace intrigue, a war of values. There's even artsy ambiguity, with Longwell unable to provide a satisfying conclusion to her fictional putsch.
