MEDIA MALPRACTICE: Network evening news coverage of the presidential race is even more slanted this year than it was in 2016.
MEDIA MALPRACTICE: Either COVID-19 is WOKE or else the media sucks. I’m voting for the latter.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN: CLICK [9:34] to hear Ronald Reagan back in 1964 that is very timely.
DEMOCRATS SUCK: From Andrew Klavan – “Impoverished black people are being used as pawns in the Left’s game of thrones. As Daniel Henninger wrote in the WSJ this week, 55 years of leftist policies have sent trillions of dollars’ worth of “Medicaid, food stamps, welfare, public housing, rent subsidies and federal aid to public schools” into poor neighborhoods governed by the Left, and very little in those neighborhoods has changed.
“But those trillions of dollars represent patronage jobs and they create political dependency that keeps the Left in power while keeping poor black Americans poor. If they are not kept poor, Democrats will lose power and money. Why would Democrats help them then? It’s against their own interest. Instead, they inspire them to anger and disorder, creating the sort of crisis the Left will not let go to waste.
“So go ahead, white leftists. Kneel down. But if you debase yourself before a child without a father, he still has no father. If you debase yourself before a man without a job, he still has no job. If you debase yourself while destroying charter school programs and defending horrendous public housing — why then, you are a Democrat and well and truly debased. Kneel down.”
THE RADICAL LEFT: [22:28] – The results of a 2-year undercover investigation into a radical left wing organization called Sunrise Movement. This video is so disturbing that I couldn’t watch the whole thing. Sadly, it is also not surprising.
The political Left is working off a playbook that was created a century ago by Marxists who were shocked and disappointed when the great workers’ uprising in Russia did not inspire workers in western, Judaeo-Christian societies to rise up and topple their Capitalist governments.
This group, known as the Frankfurt School, set out to identify what aspects of these societies made people so content that they didn’t want Socialism or Communism. And then they outlined how to destroy them. Their work has been elaborated upon by Leftist leaders such as Saul Alinsky and Cloward-Piven.
A simple method for understanding the Left is to consider that Saul Alinsky dedicated his book to Satan. When you line up the teachings of the Holy Bible with the tenets of the Left, you will find 100% contradiction. If it’s godly, then the Left hates it.
Here are some other resources to help you understand the Left’s playbook.

DEFUND POLICE: Democratic lawmakers, operatives, and commentators are calling for the defunding or abolition of America’s police departments. Fortunately, this is a losing position for Democrats come November.
A recent Monmouth University poll showed that 72% of blacks are satisfied with their local police departments. And a recent YouGov poll showed that only 16% of Americans across all parties support any cutting of police funding.
Police defunding or abolition has long been a key idea of the radical left. John Daniel Davidson writes at The Federalist about what happens when you actually do it.
It isn’t pretty. But it is what the Leftist Elites want.
On the upside, the latest Rasmussen tracking poll shows President Trump’s approval rating among likely black voters is at 41%.
Last year, Stewart Lawrence wrote that Trump earned just 8% of the black vote in 2016 and that a “gain to double-digit support could provide the margin of difference in key swing states, such as Pennsylvania and Michigan.”
RACISM: From Andrew Klavan – “Of course, America is not a racist country. It is the least racist country, the only country even to attempt such a high level of multi-ethnicity with such comity and compassion.
“And there is approximately zero percent systemic racism here, if by systemic racism you mean barriers to advancement of a particular race built into our systems.
“That people dislike and distrust one another on tribal grounds is a fact of human life. That hasn’t stopped Jews, Irish, Jamaicans, Nigerians or anyone else from doing well here.”
VOTE “R” IN NOVEMBER: A Minneapolis manufacturing company is taking 50 jobs out of the city, because Democrat public officials allowed his plant to burn during the recent riots.
“They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own,” says the owner.
VOTE “R” IN NOVEMBER: Last week, NYC Mayor DeBlasio (who was not wearing mask) joined tens of thousands at a protest in Brooklyn.
This week, cops rousted a bunch of Jewish kids for “trespassing” (i.e., playing) at a park.
CATHOLIC: [11:01] – Bishop Barron talks about the devil.
JUSTICE: The Eight Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Missouri’s law requiring physicians to give women a pro-life booklet and perform an ultrasound before an abortion does not infringe on a Satanist’s religious freedom.
