Nah! Just a distraction. Systemic racism is the most critical issue in front of the world!

The expectation is that Palestine will finally come to the table. How can it have any choice?

More winning. Once again, Team Trump accomplishing things that "all the world's greatest diplomats" couldn't accomplish over the last 75 years. Certainly some of it is that times slowly change, but a LOT of it is that Team Trump is actually looking for solutions, and not trying to play globalist power games. And Iran is also providing a real, serious threat to all countries in the region who are not predominately Shiite. Much of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" going on, too. Iran is very dangerous.

This could never have happened under a democrat. Fracking had to 1st make this country oil independent. The result was that oil prices fell and ME oil states became poor. Before this, oil rich states would pay palestinians to kill jews. Now those poorer nations are looking for a way to diversify. Throwing Gaza under the bus is great for their bottom line. President Trump also never tried to appease terror state, Iran.

Just saw a brief story on Fox showing the blackout of coverage from the alphabet networks, including "Andrea Mitchell, NBC News" saying it's not a peace agreement because the Palestinians are not included. They can not contain their disdain / TDS.

Maybe the Daily Worker -oops! I meant News, consider Trump a disaster, but a booming economy, record low unemployment, peace deals in the Mideast, record stock market, record oil supplies, etc, put the lie to that. But I suppose they prefer the 17% inflation, gas shortages and hostages taken under Carter. Or Obama's bowing to foreign leaders, racial disharmony and billions of cash sent to our enemy Iran.

#5, while they may want to use the excuse, rationalization or justification for their lack of coverage, these countries don't need to have the Palestinians to make peace and recognize Israel's right to exist. It would seem they are actively interfering in the election by NOT reporting good news that might help President Trump, and Republicans.

#4's point about US technology and leasing rules changing (lumped conveniently, if somewhat inaccurately and overly simplistically under the term "fracking") being a huge factor which has changed the economic climate in the middle east, which puts lots of pressure on the political dynamics. Huge big deal, and as #4 pointed out, it would NOT have happened under Dems who want the USA weak and under the thumb of the middle eastern oil sellers.

It's pretty funny to hear the "News" whine that they consider Trump a disaster in the job. Yet, if Trump had done things the way the "wise" media would have it, there would have been NO progress and no chance of peace. They would still be lapping at the feet of the "Palestinians" whose sole purpose in life is to say "NO!". The only agreement that the "Palestinians" would approve is one in which Israel agreed to commit suicide. Trump and his people alone saw this path and had the fortitude to carry it out in the face of the entrenched and fossilized Deep State bureaucracy, the recalcitrant dems, and the obnoxious media. The Daily News must have felt like they were chewing broken glass; their richly deserved dessert.

This may only qualify as one of those “local news stories” for most of the media, but it could provide a chilling look at the future of law enforcement in America. A couple of weeks ago, some problems arose at an apartment complex in Aurora, Colorado. One of the residents had unwisely invited Robert Thompson, 47, to stay at the apartment he shared with his girlfriend. He did this despite Thompson having a lengthy rap sheet and a history of criminal behavior. True to form, Thompson quickly began causing trouble of an alarming kind, including exposing himself to some young girls, throwing a rock through someone’s window

In late August, when riots erupted in Kenosha, Wisconsin, CNN featured a reporter standing in front of a burning car lot above a chyron that read: “Fiery but mostly peaceful protests after police shooting.” The use of the chyron was striking in its peculiar earnestness, considering that the words “mostly peaceful protest” had long since become a bitter in-joke for right-leaning social media. Indeed, from the moment the first protests began in late May, mainstream media outlets have downplayed or ignored instances of violence or destructive looting.

This election season is proving apocalyptic in the true sense of the word. An “apocalypse” (from the Greek apokaluptein, meaning “to reveal”) is simply a “revelation”—hence the biblical book by that name. When the apocalypse comes, the lights go on backstage and you see what was really happening all along. You can tell we’re in a political apocalypse right now because of how our ruling classes—the pundits, stuffed shirts, and establishment political operatives on both sides—are behaving. (Snip)Biden is deteriorating. There’s just no kind or delicate way around this point, although of course we don’t relish the man’s decline or take the suffering of old age lightly.

Everyone beware because they’re not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop before election day in November, and they’re not going to stop after election day. And everyone should take note of that…they’re not going to let up—and they should not. And we should not. — Kamala Harris It would seem that Kamala Harris and Joe Biden have now made explicit what was always implied in their campaign: as Joe becomes less and less compos mentis, the Democratic proposition on the table becomes, in the words of the candidates themselves, a “Harris-Biden administration.” So it behooves the American people to be as clear as possible not only about who Biden is,

Politicians shut down businesses because of COVID-19. But the rules don’t apply to everyone. In San Francisco, gyms were forced to close, but government gyms stayed open. In my new video, we see a Dallas woman being jailed for keeping her salon open and a New Jersey man getting arrested after working out indoors. Ordinary people who break the rules get punished. But not House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Politicians are special. Now, politicians have allowed more businesses to open. Dallas relaxed its rules for most businesses a few months ago.

Determined only to cast a vote for a candidate he believed in, he left the top of his ballot blank in the 2016 presidential election.

Former President Bill Clinton made a significant change to federal land management nearly 30 years ago that created the conditions necessary for massive wildfires to consume portions of the West Coast, according to one fire expert who predicted the problem years ago. Shortly before leaving office in 2001, Clinton limited the ability of the United States Forest Service to thin out a dense thicket of foliage and downed trees on federal land to bring the West into a pristine state, Bob Zybach, an experienced forester with a PhD in environmental science, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. The former president’s decision created a ticking time bomb, Zybach argues.

On Sunday, police arrested a man who confessed to starting a brush fire with a Molotov cocktail in Portland. They booked him in Multnomah County Jail. Portland being Portland, the authorities released the suspect that evening. The man then went on to start six more fires before the police arrested him yet again. The cops took him to a hospital for a mental evaluation. “On Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 4:35p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to assist Portland Fire and Rescue with a brush fire in the 9600 block of East Burnside Street,” the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reported.

A free country does not suspend the right of citizens to travel freely within its borders.

San Francisco has a serious drug problem, particularly among its homeless population. Roughly 8,000 people live on the city’s sidewalks or in its alleyways, public parks, and playgrounds. People with needles in their arms and legs, holding glass pipes and lighters, are a regular sight. Users go limp in doorways and tents, or they career about, dazed and distraught, or angry and violent. Dealers selling heroin, Fentanyl, methamphetamine, and crack are ubiquitous. So, too, are the advocates for “harm reduction,” which holds that widespread drug use should be accepted but its worst effects mitigated. Organizations such as the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, the Harm Reduction Coalition, the Drug Users Union,

Nine years ago, when I was battling cancer, I pledged to do everything in my power to fight to save that dream for my children and grandchildren.

A Fox News panel scolded and cut away from former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich after he linked liberal billionaire George Soros to the violent riots that have caused damage across the country over the last few months. “The No. 1 problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said to a panel on Fox News’s Outnumbered on Wednesday. “Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended how she has handled her relationship with President Trump — after it was pointed out that the two leaders haven’t spoken in almost a year amid mounting crises. Speaking to MSNBC’s Craig Melvin on Monday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) faced pushback after repeatedly saying “Forget him” while answering a question about countering the commander-in-chief’s rhetoric and narrative. Melvin noted to the nation’s highest elected Democrat that, “with all due respect, you just said, ‘Forget him.'” “Yeah, forget him,” she responded. The MSNBC host then asked if she and the president had “just stopped talking? Is that where we are?” “You haven’t talked to him about the wildfires,

On Tuesday, during an episode of The Five, Juan Williams claimed that the recent peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain that Trump negotiated a “distraction” and that rather than achieving peace they are “accelerating” the “chance of war” in the Middle East. Williams made his argument while he and his co-panelists were discussing Nancy Pelosi’s recent remarks that the peace deals were a “distraction.”

Approximately 150 pregnant Black and Pacific Islander women in San Francisco will receive a $1,000 monthly supplement during their pregnancies and for the first six months of their babies' lives, the city's mayor announced. Mayor London Breed's (D) office said on Monday that the Abundant Birth Project is the first of its kind in the country. The project's goal is to eventually provide a supplement for as long as two years post-pregnancy. “Providing guaranteed income support to mothers during pregnancy is an innovative and equitable approach that will ease some of the financial stress that all too often keeps women from being able to put their health first,” Breed said.

Pennsylvania’s highest court gave the Democratic Party a series of victories Thursday, including one allowing repairs to glitches and gray areas in the battleground state’s fledgling mail-in voting law and another that kicked the Green Party’s presidential candidate off the November ballot. The state Supreme Court, which has a 5-2 Democratic majority, granted the Democratic Party’s request to order a three-day extension of Pennsylvania’s Election Day deadline to count mailed-in ballots. And it ruled that the Green Party’s candidate for president did not strictly follow procedures for getting on the ballot in November and cannot appear on it.

By now, it’s the worst kept secret in the world that Joe Biden is having cognitive difficulties. (snip) Rush Limbaugh, however, has noticed another piece in the puzzle, and this one yields to empirical evidence rather than first-hand knowledge. This is the fact that, other than the long-ago Democrat debates and his acceptance speech (which may have been live, rather than prerecorded), Biden is never seen at night. (snip) Biden may be suffering from sundowning, something strongly associated with dementia in the elderly, especially with Alzheimer’s.
