Virginia, Minnesota - Ask Larry Cuffe why, after decades of voting for Democrats, he voted for Donald Trump four years ago, and he’ll talk about his distrust of Hillary Clinton and the need to get northern Minnesota’s mines back to work. Ask the former police officer why he’s sticking with Trump in 2020 and the list is very much longer. “The Democratic party left us. Even in the past four years it’s changed so much. Supporting people who riot? Defunding the police? That’s crazy. I think a lot of us up here are Democrats in Republican clothing now,” he said. Cuffe

Are pollsters ignoring these Democrats who have swung sharply Trump?

Evidence of a massive shift can be found at YouTube by searching for "walkaway". Truly inspiring videos of young and old alike who have had it with the Democratic Party.

FTA: “We are sitting on a half a trillion dollars’ worth of copper and nickel,” said Zupancich. “We import all our nickel whereas we could provide 90% of the world’s nickel and the state would really benefit. The mining taxes pay for our schools for the entire state.” Yes, jobs for Americans, making America great again. Keep your enviro rule sane and reasonable and people can live with them. Too many in Sierra Club are anti-capitalist, so their goal is far more about ending all big business than 'protecting the environment'. The environment is just a hammer to kill free markets and the jobs that they create.

At the end someone said the Union will make sure Biden does the right thing. If elected he will not be there too long. Then they will have to deal with Aoc. Better vote Trump!

I still think Minnesota should get kicked out of the US. For Al Franken alone. Not to mention Somalis. But I'd be happy if Minneapolis got kicked out.

Pennsylvania has rejected over 370,000 applications for mail-in ballots, most of which were duplicate requests, according to a report by ProPublica and the Philadelphia Inquirer. The battleground state's election offices rejected 372,000 requests for mail-in ballots, according to the report. About 90 percent of the denied application requests were duplicates, and one out of every five requests have been rejected. Voters in the Keystone State can indicate to election officials if they would like mail-in ballot when they vote during their primary. And issues arose when voters duplicated those requests after asking for a ballot in the general election during

Work from home: Workers called 'greedy,' 'petty'
for expecting companies to pay for expenses

As the pandemic drags on into its eighth month, many companies have given up on back-to-the-office timelines and realize remote work, when possible, will continue indefinitely (or at least until summer of 2021). And companies want their workers to be comfortable – and more importantly, productive – so to that end some have given remote work stipends to employees to pay for expenses such as new office furniture and supplies for their home offices. Big tech firms including Google, Twitter, Facebook, and Shopify are among them. But that generosity isn’t that common: only 1 in 10 employers have offered workers

PARIS — A student said he warned his teacher about showing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, considered blasphemous by Muslims, days before he was decapitated on a Paris street in what French President Emmanuel Macron called an "Islamist terrorist attack." (Snip) "I didn't expect a decapitation — it went too far," he said, speaking shortly after the incident with the permission of his parents. Neither the victim or the attacker, who police said was an 18-year-old of Chechen heritage, has been named by French authorities. The suspect was shot dead by police shortly after the attack.

DENVER — Citing an update in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, the City & County of Denver will now require face masks in certain outdoor public settings as well as reduce gathering limits from 10 to five people. “We are, as a county, brimming on the edge of a crisis that could further danger individuals’ health as well as damage our economy,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said during a virtual news conference announcing the two new public health orders. The tougher mask mandate is in effect indefinitely. The limit on gatherings is effective until Nov. 16, the city said. Previously, Denver’s

California’s 21st Congressional District was the last district to be called in the 2018 election, with Democrat T.J. Cox defeating incumbent Republican David Valadao one month after election day. In a year of crazy election news, their rematch has become even more chaotic. (Snip) But in less than two years in Congress, Cox has amassed quite a reputation for corruption. He had falsely listed two homes, including one in Maryland, as his primary residence, against federal tax rules. Both the Internal Revenue Service and the state of California filed liens against Cox for a total of $175,000 in unpaid taxes.

Poll after poll may give Democratic nominee Joe Biden the advantage next month, but Democrats still have some fears. While Democrats have made voter registration and flat-out voting a major message throughout their pushes for Biden, Republicans have still so far been winning the voter registration game. Democrats haven't publicly acknowledged their shortcomings, but at least one is privately sounding the alarm, Thomas B. Edsall relays in an opinion column for The New York Times. Both national and swing-state polls continue to give Biden an advantage over President Trump this November, with FiveThirtyEight's presidential tracker showing Biden with an 87

MIAMI — NBC has been rocked by an internal feud over its decision to host a town hall with Donald Trump at the same time as ABC’s Thursday event with Joe Biden, a scheduling move that critics contend is a gift to the president after he refused to participate in a debate originally scheduled for Thursday. The internal conflict extends to the highest levels of NBCUniversal, where MSNBC head Phil Griffin strongly disagreed with NBC News President Noah Oppenheim’s decision to unilaterally move forward with the town hall during that time slot, according to three high-ranking sources at the TV

In the buttoned-down field of survey research, Warren Mitofsky is remembered as something of a legend. In the 1960s, he developed the exit poll for CBS News, a technique in which voters are interviewed as they leave polling places. Mitofsky, who died in 2006, also helped initiate random-digit dialing by telephone, a randomized sampling method that revolutionized survey-taking and was polling’s gold standard for years. (Snip) Poll-inspired cockiness certainly helps explain the deep shock that accompanied Donald Trump’s election four years ago. The cockiest poll-related moment of the 2016 campaign centered around a vow by Samuel Wang, the neuroscientist who

Enter the FBI.   Less than three weeks before one of the most contentious presidential campaigns in history, federal authorities are investigating whether the material supplied to the New York Post by Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, is part of a smoke bomb of disinformation pushed by Russia.   Corrections**

In yet another glaring example that today’s Democrat Party is not the same Democrat Party of not all that long ago, Joe Biden pledged on Friday to sign the so-called “Equality Act” — a bill would that force public schools to allow biological boys who identify as transgender girls to compete in girls’ sports. Let’s just let that sink in for a moment. As the Daily Caller reported, the Equality Act passed the House with unanimous support from Democrats in May 2019 but didn’t come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate. This is yet another example of what will happen to this country if Biden wins the White House

Twitter has refused to unlock the New York Post's account since Wednesday unless the outlet deletes six tweets about its reporting on 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, the Post reported. Both the San Francisco-based social media platform and Facebook came under fire this week after the two blocked users from sharing a Post article showing purported communication between 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company. The younger Biden's work in the country while his father was vice president was at the heart of President Trump's impeachment trial earlier this year.

Former President Barack Obama will head to Philadelphia on Wednesday to campaign on behalf of the Biden-Harris ticket, his first appearance on the trail thus far. With just two weeks until the election, Obama will rally support in a battleground state that President Trump won by less than a percentage point in 2016. Current polls show Democratic opponent Joe Biden leading Trump by more than five percentage points, according to a Real Clear Politics average. (Snip) Meanwhile, vice presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has tweaked her campaign events after multiple staffers tested positive for the coronavirus, but her husband, Doug Emhoff, will hold a rally in Philadelphia on Saturday.

The sparse attendance and conspicuous lack of enthusiasm at Joe Biden’s rallies seems to have led old Joe’s handlers, despite his 10,000-point lead in the polls, to decide that another round of Islamopandering might be just the shot in the arm their campaign needs. After all, hard-Leftists such as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Linda Sarsour are all Muslims, and all were firmly in the Bernie Sanders camp before the Democratic National Committee shivved their man yet again. Their support for Biden has been decidedly tepid. And so it was time to send them some love. On Wednesday, Biden released a video message to Muslim Advocates,

Arguably the biggest sensation to come out of the debacle of a town hall NBC had with President Trump was the so-called “nodding lady.” Positioned directly behind the President’s left shoulder for one of the most widely used camera angles, she was applauded by some and attacked by others for nodding her head and displaying thumbs up in agreement when the President answered many of the attack questions posed to him by Savannah Guthrie. But she wasn’t originally positioned there. Before the town hall began, a Caucasian lady was originally positioned there.

The event featured some well-known conservative personalities, but organizers were forced to cancel the rally minutes after it started. A large crowd of demonstrators gathered at UN Plaza in San Francisco to oppose a small group, holding what was billed as a free speech rally protesting what they say is Twitter's censorship of some of its content.
