In The News:
It was two weeks ago when I received the diagnosis that so many Americans across our country and the world had already received—I tested positive for COVID-19.
To make matters worse, my husband, and our nation’s Commander-in-Chief, received the same news.
Naturally my mind went immediately to our son.
To our great relief he tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn’t help but think “what about tomorrow or the next day?”.

Twitter has reportedly blocked users from sharing the New York Post’s story claiming Hunter Biden organized a meeting between his father and a Ukrainian businessman while service as Vice President of the United States.
Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to KrisAnne Hall and Philip Ndifon.
Philip is a black Trump supporter who was wearing a “Black Voices for Trump” hat and a “Trump 2020” mask when he was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight for having his mask down while eating nuts, which doesn’t appear to violate Southwest’s mask policy.
KrisAnne Hall, a lawyer filmed the exchange. Dave gets their take on what happened.
TO CATCH A COMMUNIST: O’Keefe Confronts Dem Party Exec Committee member Kris Jacks outside of Denver
Jacks refused to admit his current position within Colorado Dem Party and doubled down on “Lie, cheat, and STEAL” agenda caught on undercover camera!
A Denver area Democrat staffer and chairman of non-profit “Our Revolution” Kristopher Jacks was caught on video admitting 2020 is a political revolution and the Democrats will do anything to seize power.
The Democrats “want to change this country with violence…there’s only one way to do it,” he said. “Guillotines motherf*cker — killing random Nazis in the street.”
“Joe Biden is presumably left-leaning and he’s got a functioning signing hand,” he said. “I do think there needs to be a militant group and I live Antifa for that reason.”
Masvidal’s comments came during a stop on the “Fighters Against Socialism” bus tour, which Donald Trump Jr. launched with Masvidal and other Latinos.
Masvidal, whose father escaped communist Cuba, warned his fellow Latinos that Democrats are attempting to take advantage of them by merely assuming Latinos will vote for Democratic candidates.
“I’m gonna let you in on something,” Masvidal said. “The Democrats just think that they’re entitled to the Latino vote. They think that we just have to hand it over to them. That’s right. We sure as hell don’t.”
The crowd responded with boos.
Facebook said it would rely on its fact-checking partners to determine the story’s legitimacy, but until then, it is taking steps to tamp down on its spread.
“While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners,” Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone tweeted Wednesday.
“In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.”
Why? Because California…Funny thing… The wholesale price paid for solar PV generated electricity in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas is lower than the average wholesale price from all sources in California…
But, it’s still higher than the other sources in those states… Why?
Because solar power doesn’t work late at night, when demand is lowest.
It works best in mid-afternoon, when demand and prices are high… Then it crashes just before demand peaks, creating the “duck curve”.
In case there was any doubt that ‘Climate Change” was not communism, here is an article in Foreign Policy that will remove it.
It’s filled with goodies such as:
Climate colonialism is like climate apartheid on an international scale. Economic power, location, and access to resources determine how communities can respond to climate impacts. But these factors are shaped by existing global injustices: the history of slavery, colonialism, and imperialism that enriched some countries at the expense of others. Global warming has exacerbated these inequalities, and the climate crisis will lead to new divisions between those who can mitigate its impact and those who cannot.
It’s all about redistribution;
But to mitigate climate change effectively and fairly, the international community needs to broadly redistribute funds across states to respond to inequalities in resilience capacity and the unjust system underpinning them. As Mohammed Adow, the director of the Nairobi-based think tank Power Shift Africa, explains, the international community has already designed a mechanism that could perform this task: the Green Climate Fund (GCF), which is the largest international fund aimed at helping developing countries mitigate and adapt to climate impacts.

The U.S. intelligence Community said China is meddling in the 2020 election. But how are they doing it?
How important is the data and AI to this election in 2020?
Less than a month till the election, my interview with David Pamioner, former member of the U.S. army intelligence to discuss what the CCP could be doing with big data and AI to influence the most important democratic process of this country.
Three years ago, Daniel Allott left his job to travel around America talking to voters across the political spectrum, from farmers to students to refugees.
He went to America’s most politically interesting areas, including America’s most racially diverse rural county; and a county in Iowa that voted for both Obama and Trump by a landslide 20 percentage points.
In this episode, Allott tells us about his journey and what he found, which he’s documented in a new book, “On the Road in Trump’s America: A Journey Into the Heart of a Divided Nation.”
There are two campgrounds near my house, one privately owned, the other government owned.
Signs at the government run campground say “Camp is full,” but it’s not! There are few people camping.
That’s the difference between government and private. The Massachusetts Parks Department is allowed to lose millions of dollars. Taxpayers will make up the difference.
John Gauthier invests his own money He has to make a profit to survive.
I tell him, “It’s unfair, you have to compete against the government, which is losing all this money.”
Gauthier replies “Yeah. It’s not a great scenario, but what can we do?”
Tom Klingenstein explains why 2020 may be the most consequential election since 1860—and why President Trump is the man most uniquely suited to the moment.
Commentary/Opinion: There’s no need to speculate on why they did this. There is no justification for safety or the public interest. No one’s life was put at risk by this information. They took these actions for blatantly partisan reasons: They want Joe Biden to win.
The announcements themselves came from partisans who traded their political access for careers in Silicon Valley. When Twitter earlier this year banned the President of the United States — the leader of the free world — from tweeting a video to an interview he did on the largest cable news network in the country, it announced that action via Nick Pacilio, a former communications staffer for Democratic vice presidential Kamala Harris.
Facebook’s announcement that it would throttle access to the New York Post’s investigative reporting came via Andy Stone, a former Democratic congressional and campaign staffer who worked for Barbara Boxer and John Kerry.
If Joe Biden is elected president, of course he will pack the Supreme Court, and our judiciary branch will be ruined forever.
Remember when Joe Biden said he had no idea what his son was up to and that he trusted that nothing shady was going on because he trusted him? Yeah, that got blown up today.
The New York Post’s unearthed new emails that show that Joey Biden was all too aware of his son’s dealings (via NY Post):
Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.
The Obama administration let a Democratic p.r. company that worked for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma take part in a conference call about an upcoming visit to Ukraine by then-Vice President Joe Biden, emails obtained by The Post show.
An associate at Blue Star Strategies then emailed a memo with minutes of the conference call hosted by the White House to a top Burisma executive, Vadym Pozharskyi, as well as to Joe Biden’s son Hunter and Hunter’s business partner, Devon Archer, both of whom sat on Burisma’s board.
The trip, in December 2015, turned out to be the one during which Biden later bragged about forcing Ukrainian officials to fire a state prosecutor who was investigating Burisma by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee.
Russia probe figure Bruce Ohr retired from DOJ as disciplinary review decision loomed, spokeswoman says
“Bruce Ohr retired from the Department of Justice on Sept. 30, 2020. As such, he is no longer an employee of the department,” Justice Department spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement.
“Mr. Ohr retired after his counsel was informed that a final decision on a disciplinary review being conducted by department senior career officials was imminent.”
Ohr was a key contact inside the Justice Department for Steele, who authored an anti-Trump dossier for research firm Fusion GPS as opposition research for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for Fusion GPS at the time.
Epstein theorized that Google had the power to “mobilize the base supporters of Democratic candidates to register to vote and then to vote; they can discourage some Republican voters from registering to vote or voting.” He wrote that the company had “at least 9 million undecided voters they can still play with.”
A Google search not affiliated with an account shows the search bar auto-completes certain terms with “senate.” When a user types in “flip the,” “senate” shows up three times.
Searches that involve the term “democrat” also auto-complete with “flip the senate.” In addition, when it comes to a search with the term “Mitch,” the first name of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Google auto-completes with “vote mitch mcconnell out.”
More than 750 people had been evacuated from the area near the Piast Canal outside the town of Swinoujscie where the Tallboy bomb used by Britain’s Royal Air Force (RAF) was found.
It weighed nearly 5,400 kg, including 2,400 kg of explosive.
Swinoujscie contains a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal but a spokesman for the town’s mayor told PAP no one was injured and no infrastructure had been damaged.
The Piast Canal connects the Baltic Sea with the Oder River on Poland’s border with Germany. The bomb was dropped by the RAF in 1945 in an attack on the German cruiser Lutzow.

1) Israeli and Lebanese delegations held their first meeting today, as part of negotiations, under U.S. mediation, for the purpose of resolving a bilateral maritime boundary dispute.
2) Greek Foreign Minister reiterated his country’s anger over Turkey’s decision to reengage in off-shore energy exploration – reiterating his depiction of Ankara as the “common denominator” to “every problem in the region.”

A Royal Oman Air Force plane carrying the two Americans and the remains of a third flew out of Yemen’s Houthi-controlled capital of Sana’a, hours after the jet and a companion flight brought hundreds of militants back to the country following years stuck in Oman.
The deal secured freedom for Sandra Loli, an American humanitarian worker who was held hostage by the Houthis for about three years, and Mikael Gidada, a U.S. businessman who was held for about a year, said Kash Patel, a deputy assistant to President Trump who worked on the deal.
The pact also included the return of the remains of Bilal Fateen, a third American who had been held by the Houthis.
U.S. officials provided only limited information on the three Americans but did say that they had been working urgently to secure the deal because Ms. Loli’s health was in decline.
The deal also included delivery of medical aid for Yemen.
Based on Lee Smith’s book of the same name, “The Plot Against The President” tells the incredible story of the Russian collusion hoax in documentary form.
It’s pro-Trump, but also a work of journalistic import given the critical contributions from witnesses and stakeholders who recall the investigation in detail.
What’s more, “The Plot Against The President” is stylish, making a compelling case with the benefit of Hollywood flair, rare for overtly conservative productions.
That’s easier to do when your director is a USC film school graduate and the daughter of Hollywood royalty.
Such is the case with Amanda Milius, whose father is legendary writer and director John Milius, the man behind “Dirty Harry,” “Red Dawn,” and much more.
