New York, New York, once a wonderful town The people are crap and the mayor’s a clown The only safe space is a hole in the ground… NEW YORK—I could go on, but why be so negative? Arriving from bucolic Switzerland, Newark feels like Katanga circa 1960. If this isn’t a third-world-country airport, I don’t know what is. Newark is known as the murder capital of America, but it’s not PC to mention it because Newark is 90 percent black. My driver tells me I’m lucky that the virus is keeping people away, otherwise it would take at least three hours just to get through customs. There are no electric signs working

And that was just the airport, on his way to NYC, where he has a residence. FTA: Park Avenue, where I live, looks like an Israeli religious complex on Yom Kippur. Even the doormen are inside behind locked doors. The next morning I read in the Post that seven people were shot during the day of my arrival. One was shot for his backpack. Not a word about this in the degenerate Times as all the perpetrators and the victims are black. While pandering to so-called minorities, the two most useless governor and mayor ever have done away with bail and pretrial detention, turning the Bagel into a criminal paradise.

My international travel usually took me through EWR. His description of the airport is spot-on. I cannot understand why the pre-eminent city in the pre-eminent country in the world has three of the worst airports. Never mind, it's rhetorical.

I had to get a connecting flight in Newark a few years ago. Truly a s*****e with some of the surliest employees I have ever had the misfortune to run into. Taki is right, Dem-run cities are beginning to look like cities in Africa. Most are dead broke and losing their tax base. I am not sure what we will become. Please pray and vote Nov 3.

The opening was devastating....and it went downhill from there for the NY/NJ sewer area. "Arriving from bucolic Switzerland, Newark feels like Katanga circa 1960."

About ten years ago, a liberal friend of mine drove from Ohio to Newark to attend a doo-wop oldies concert. He told me that he "didn't see any Americans" while in Newark. Again, those were the words of a liberal Democrat.

I am trying to end the italics here. We'll see if it works. Personally, I found the article a bit rambling, but I take his point.

The Biden Emails Prove Impeachment
Was A Sham

Remember January? (Snip) it was the impeachment of the president of the United States. This week’s bombshell New York Post story on Hunter Biden now shows what many of us suspected: The impeachment was a ridiculous sham. The basis for the impeachment (Snip) was that President Trump pressured the president of Ukraine to launch investigations into the energy company Burisma for the purely political purpose of hurting Joe Biden. Central to that allegation was the argument that Trump and the United States had no legitimate interest in seeing Burisma investigated. If the trove of emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop are accurate, and they have not been disputed, then this argument falls

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.

As RedState has been covering extensively, Hunter Biden’s emails have laid out more evidence of influence peddling and corruption among Joe Biden and his son. Former denials have been blown up as it appears certain that the former VP was well aware of what his son was doing. The latest email drop even asserts that Joe Biden was getting monetary kickbacks. (Snip) the FBI has supposedly had this information since last year. Now, we know they are investigating, (Snip) Instead of looking into whether laws were broken by the corruption of Joe and Hunter Biden, the FBI is hot on the case of whether the emails are “Russian misinformation.”

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.

RICHMOND, Va. – Virginia’s Republican Senate candidate is heading into Election Day at a fundraising disadvantage against a well-known Democratic incumbent – but the Iraq War veteran said he’s closing the gap. Daniel Gade, who lost a leg to a roadside bomb during Operation Iraqi Freedom, said he believes his story is attracting more voters. He graduated from West Point in 1997 and remained in the Army after his injury, retiring as a lieutenant colonel in 2017. He also served on several White House advisory committees for veterans and the disabled beginning under former President George W. Bush. He has a Ph.D. in public administration and became a university professor.

I recently chatted with a veteran political observer who asked my opinion on a matter confounding him. Apparently, this observer had conversed with an equally politically savvy person, and the pair had shared a puzzlement over the dearth of audiences at former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign appearances.

Ultimately, both deemed the 2020 presidential election the oddest not only in their lifetimes, but in all of American history. They felt something was missing, (Snip) I opined that the Democrats are running a “gaslight election.” What was missing from the Democratic Party was a real candidate and

Rudy Giuliani is Trump's private attorney. The evidence he has gathered regarding the Biden Crime Family was gathered using his own resources--not government resources. In practical terms, that means that, since the evidence wasn't gathered using legal process (especially not grand jury subpoenas or search warrants) Giuliani is utterly unfettered by grand jury rule regarding the use and disclosure of the material. He can talk to anyone he wants about the evidence, and disclose it to whomever he wants. He can do MSM interviews about it, (Snip)The Bidens remain welcome to sue Rudy for defamation if they care to (Nick Sandmann can recommend a good lawyer).

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.

Harvey Weinstein is broke and will likely die if he remains in prison, his lawyer said Friday at a hearing over whether the former powerhouse producer should be freed on bail pending an appeal of his Manhattan rape conviction. “[Weinstein’s] physical and mental condition has so deteriorated, I do not think it’s an overstatement to say that if he is not released as part of this application, his chances of surviving in prison are rather low,” one of his lawyers, Barry Kamins, told Judge Angela Mazzarelli during a virtual hearing in the Appellate Division First Department.

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.

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.
