New York’s ultra-rich are quietly preparing for civil unrest on Election Day — by hiring armed guards to stand watch over their luxury Manhattan buildings. At the Time Warner Center on Columbus Circle, where the penthouse is going for $62.5 million, managers are deploying off-duty cops with “submachine guns” to stand watch, while other wealthy city enclaves are also beefing up protection for residents. “Everybody is worried about security,” an insider told the Post. “Every top building is adding security. It’s out of control. We hope it won’t be needed, but we will be ready.” The building is working with the NYPD and Homeland Security, the insider said.

Comments:

The big Dem donors are protected by guards with submachine guns (absolutely illegal to own in NY state if you are not police). And ordinary persons find it impossible to own a normal AR rifle in NYC at all. A handgun requires hugely difficult paperwork, and great expense. And that handgun cannot hold more than seven cartridges in the magazine.
But the same people that want you disarmed, WILL have their machine gun armed guards protecting them.

But their candidate is leading in the polls, heading for a landslide according to the leftist media. So NYC's mega-rich should planning street parties with their blm/antifa foot soldiers rather than planning to shoot them.

C'mon man, why do you need guards armed with 'sub-machine guns' to stop peaceful protests?

New York City is characterized as the ''Big Loot'' by BLM. They don't care who wins because they will win.

Austin has seen a spike in violent crime and officer retirements after the city council voted over the summer to immediately slash $20 million from the police department budget, becoming the first major Texas city to do so. In August, Austin City Council members voted unanimously to cut about $150 million, or roughly one-third, from its police department and allocate those funds to areas like violence prevention, housing and mental health services. Only about $21.5 million was immediately removed from the department's funding in part by canceling three upcoming cadet classes and slashing overtime expenses. "It is demoralizing for the officers. It is angering for the citizens

A second night of unrest in Philadelphia began Tuesday night over the police shooting death of a Black man, just as his children recalled memories of their father in front of reporters and 1,000 looters reportedly began targeting businesses, police said. Three of Walter Wallace Jr's., sons remembered their father during a news conference surrounded by family and community members. "We always go places," said one child, whose name was not revealed. "He always teach [sic] me how to be a man. And these white racist cops got my own dad. And Black Lives still matter."

When the Senate votes on Monday evening to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court, it will be just over a week before Election Day that will decide what both parties are portraying as the most important race in American history. If Barrett is confirmed to become a member of the highest bench in the country – and, with Republicans easily having enough votes to confirm her, that seems to be a foregone conclusion – one of the first cases she could hear as a new Supreme Court justice could decide who wins the White House. Courts at all levels have been deluged with cases relating to balloting

The Detroit News announced its endorsement Thursday for John James, the Republican challenger taking on incumbent Democrat Gary Peters in the 2020 race for Michigan's Senate seat. "Michigan would gain increased influence and better representation for its people in the U.S. Senate by electing John James," the editorial board said in a statement. "It would also send to the Senate a natural leader who could well become one of the chamber’s most powerful members.” The board noted that James is a "businessman who understands the impact COVID-19 has had on the nation’s industrial base, and what it will take to recover." "To stimulate the economy, he advocates continued tax and regulatory reform,

The real winner of the 2020 election might be this Pennsylvania bakery. A family-owned bakery in the town of Hatboro claims that its election-themed cookies — which are currently flying off the rack — have accurately predicted the outcome of the past three presidential elections. So far, they say sales indicate a clear leader for the 2020 race, too. Lochel’s Bakery, located in Montgomery County just north of Philadelphia, had launched its most recent “cookie poll” about six weeks back, offering both “Trump 2020” cookies and “Biden 2020” cookies in red and blue, respectively. This year’s sales, however, are unlike anything the bakery has seen during the last four election cycles.

Pennsylvania Republicans are narrowing the registered voter gap with Democrats with just weeks to go until the 2020 election. This week, Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar released new voter registration data – which showed that the state had around 3.5 million registered Republicans and about 4.2 million registered Democrats. That compares to last year, when there were about 4 million registered Democrats and 3.2 million registered Republicans, which means the gap in registration declined from around 9.5% to 8.1%, as noted by The Morning Call. Boockvar also said voter registration may be at an all-time high – about 8,908,777 people have registered to vote in a state of roughly 13 million people.

Former Sen.

I know all of the Republicans and most are friends of mine,” Dole, who served 27 years in the Senate and ran for president in 1996, wrote on Twitter. “I am concerned that none of them support @realDonaldTrump. A biased Debate Commission is unfair,” he continued. Trump allies have slammed the CPD, alleging bias toward Joe Biden after the commission announced the

When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced a new select subcommittee to investigate and oversee the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic, Republicans knew we were in for a fight. Democrats were going to use this subcommittee to relentlessly hamper, harass and pass blame on the Trump administration in the middle of the worst pandemic in a century. Over the past months, I’ve led Republicans on the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis as we’ve tried to cut through the noise and partisanship. After over a dozen hearings, Democrats have still failed to uncover any major fault in the Trump administration’s pandemic response However, despite Democrats’ best efforts to obstruct our investigations,

President Trump is “doing very well” and has no difficulty breathing, his medical team said Saturday -- the morning after he was transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. White House physician Dr. Sean Conley and other members of the medical team briefed reporters on Trump’s condition. Conley said they were “extremely happy with the progress” Trump is making. "This morning, the president is doing very well," he said. However, moments after the press conference, a source familiar with the president's health gave a more cautious diagnosis to the press pool.

It was going to be a hard day. Keith Mannes prayed he was doing right. He got into his car and drove past harvested cornfields and "Keep America Great!" signs. He parked, walked a few steps and opened the door to his church. A pastor for decades, he stood before a few dozen congregants. He knew them all, their histories, struggles and joys. That is the way of things here. He told them he loved them and asked for forgiveness. But he couldn't go on as before.

WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after “Congratulations” is almost always “Do you know what you want?” We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then. Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who—rather than what—is growing inside my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to?

Model, actress, and radical feminist Emily Ratajkowski announced her pregnancy in this month’s Vogue Magazine, writing an essay reflecting on the sex of her child. As is the case with many far-left causes and feminists, Ratajkowski signals her most progressive beliefs, only to find herself wrestling with the pesky reality that is biology. Like Tampax claiming men can have periods, or school districts ruling it fair for boys to compete in girls’ sports, leftist causes often come down to arguments over semantics rather than science. Ratajkowski finds herself in a similar trap, claiming to not really know her child’s sex until he is 18, and assuring readers

Everyone knows the old joke that “even paranoid people have enemies.” Perhaps that needs to be expanded to say, “even conspiracy theorists sometimes stumble across real conspiracies.” During his Wednesday night show, Tucker Carlson said a source had sent documents about more Biden shenanigans to Fox News’s New York office. Carlson’s producer forwarded the documents to Los Angeles, where Carlson was interviewing Tony Bobulinsky – but the documents vanished along the way. Carlson explained that, on Monday, his producer deposited the envelope with a major American shipping company. However, by Tuesday morning, the shipping company notified Carlson’s team that the envelope was now open and empty.
