There may be enough Orange Man Bad fever out there make the progressives sing Kumbaya on election day, but that’s not likely given the taste of blood that they’ve gotten in recent months…”

Twitchy: JOURNALISM! George Stephanopoulos reporting that Kamala Harris comes from the ‘middle of the road moderate wing’ of the Dem Party gets debunked with her voting record … “Based on her voting record per GovTrack, which tracks legislation sponsorship/co-sponsorship (corrected from earlier), Harris was the most liberal senator of 2019.”

Pres. Trump on the charge and forging ahead…
Brooke Singman: Ballots Before Bill: Trump says Democrats’ mail-in ballot push holding up coronavirus stimulus package: Trump tells ‘Mornings with Maria’ mail-in voting would cause ‘the greatest fraud in history’
“It’s their fault,” Trump said. “They want $3.5 billion for something that’s fraudulent … for the mail-in votes, universal mail-in ballots. They want $25 billion for the post office. They need that money so it can work and they can take these millions and millions of ballots.”
Trump added: “But if they don’t get those two items, then they can’t have mail-in ballots.”
The president went on to slam the practice, saying that ballots have been “sent to dogs” and “dead people,” citing states like Virginia, where he said more than “500,000 phony ballot applications were sent to voters,” and in New York, where mail-in voting caused a weekslong delay in announcing results for some races in the state’s primary.
“How would you like to have $3.5 billion for mail-in voting? You know how much money that is? They want $25 billion for the post office because the post office is going to have to go to town to get these ridiculous ballots in,” Trump said.
The president went on to say that “there is nothing wrong with getting out and voting” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
VIDEO: Pres. Trump lays out what the demo-commicrats list of ransom demands are for the COVID relief bill, and none have anything to do with the virus or the people suffering financially from it. It has everything to do with items regarding the election, including no voter I.D. in any state, mail-in ballots for everyone (and then some), ballot-harvesting, no signature to vote, etc. You decide what their motivation is.
Brian Flood: Trump says media would embrace border wall, hydroxychloroquine if he opposed them: ‘If I would have said, ‘I don’t believe in hydroxychloroquine’ … it would be the hottest thing going,’ Trump said … He is correct.
CR VIDEO: Young voters love Trump’s COVID plan…when told it’s Biden’s … Of course they do. TDS is pandemic, and more deadly than Wuhan plague. These kids have completely flushed their brain cells. They are the epitome of “useful idiots”. Mao, Stalin, Lenin, and Marx would be proud.
If you vote Biden/Harris and the army of demo-commie “progressive” scum behind them, the rest of the nation will become NYC, Portland, Seattle, LA, San Francisco. It is indeed their goal.
Thin Blue Lines in New York…
FNC: Artist blasts ‘selective enforcement’ after NYC orders removal of pro-police artwork: ‘Why is Mayor de Blasio’s Black Lives Matter mural more important than mine?’
Julia Vitullo-Martin @ WSJ: ‘Covid Powers’ Wreck My Neighborhood: New York City has commandeered three hotels and moved in hundreds of addicts. … Text scooped from Debra Burlingame’s Facebook post, where you can read in full as the WSJ column is pay-side.
For many years I’ve lived in paradise—the Upper West Side. We have convivial neighbors, beautiful buildings, great subways, excellent theater and dance, fine libraries and bookstores, wonderful restaurants, pleasant markets. There were problems but we worked them out amicably.
Then Covid-19 hit. The streets emptied as people sheltered in place. Retail stores, already hurt by online shopping, closed. Restaurants were shut down. The city cut sanitation pickups. Cops stopped walking the beat. At the same time, vagrancy—a perennial problem—seemed to increase, with panhandlers on many corners, and people with their belongings occupying space on the sidewalks.
Weird things started to happen, and the city government was missing in action. Rather than returning to the depot, bus drivers began parking in undesignated areas overnight and for hours during the day. When challenged, they dismissively told residents to call 311, the city’s nonemergency service number. Private delivery drivers selected blocks as distribution areas, with dozens of workers suddenly showing up and unloading hundreds of boxes onto the bike lanes and sidewalks. The Transportation Department refused to help, saying it hadn’t authorized the trucks and therefore couldn’t regulate them.
Things got even worse when the government did show up. Without a word of warning to residents or elected officials, the Department of Homeless Services, citing “emergency Covid powers,” in May moved more than 100 single men into the boutique Belnord Hotel on a quiet residential block of West 87th Street. Four buses full of people had pulled up unannounced in the early morning. The department, which has a six-month lease, refuses to say whether the shelter is permanent.
Almost simultaneously the department moved 130 men into the Hotel Belleclaire, 10 blocks south. In late July it converted yet another hotel, the Lucerne, to a temporary shelter, moving in 283 men, most recovering alcoholics and drug users according to the agency.
Long a progressive bastion, the neighborhood has worked for decades with advocates and social-service agencies to integrate supportive housing for low-income New Yorkers into the neighborhood fabric. I can count seven supportive housing projects in my immediate area.
What’s happening now is different. A reeling neighborhood has been forced—with no warning—to accept almost 600 new male residents, nearly all with histories of substance abuse. A handful are registered sex offenders, although the department asserts in its bureaucratic language that it is abiding by state law in housing them in a residential neighborhood.
True to New York’s classic development patterns, the Upper West Side is full of schools and playgrounds interspersed with businesses and residences. Worried parents have set up chat rooms and a Facebook page to post photos of men behaving badly—urinating on sidewalks, shooting up on church steps, congregating, drinking, spitting, smoking marijuana on park benches….
BTW, it’s not just NYC…

FOR THE CHILDREN OR WHATEVER: Woke War on America’s No. 1 High School: Push to ‘Segregate by Race and Income.’
Last month, Suparna Dutta spent countless hours researching how her son could safely return to school this fall as a rising sophomore at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, a sprawling campus of classrooms, laboratories and open spaces with names like “Gandhi Commons” and “Einstein Commons,” outside the nation’s capital here off Braddock Road. Little did she know that a secretive “task force” assembled by orders of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam was quietly meeting to discuss legislating radical changes to the school that would threaten the very future of the school.
Unbeknownst to Dutta — and me, also a TJ mother — Virginia Secretary of Education Atif Qarni, a former teacher, met remotely on Friday, July 24, with a carefully curated list of Democratic lawmakers, state education officials and others in a “Diversity/Equity/Inclusion Group” to make recommendations to the Virginia State Legislature on how to increase the number of Black, Hispanic and low-income students at the state’s 19 Governor’s Schools, specialized public school programs with admissions requirements. The group met again on Friday, July 31, and last week on Friday, August 7, and is expected to issue its recommendations in the coming days.
In its final meeting last week, the group weighed several options that would gut TJ’s merit-based, race-blind admissions process and replace it with standards that they even admitted in their private meetings would essentially be race-based.
Plus: “They set their sights on the school’s mostly Asian and mostly immigrant student body and vowed to change the demographics of the school.”
