RESCUE: CLICK [3:31] to see yet another dog rescue end with a healthy, happy animal living with his forever family. I love these in part because they are such beautiful metaphors for how God seeks to rescue each one of us and how, if we can put aside our fears and anger, we can end up healthy and happy, living in our real forever home.

2020: Can you change your vote? – The answer in most states is YES.

2020: As Trump holds 3 rallies a day, Joe and Kamala are nowhere to be seen. Ditto the media. It is a largely unreported phenomenon that grassroots Trump rallies have been happening for months and in some of the places he most needs to win.

The one in the photo above happened last Saturday, less than two weeks before Election Day. It was planned entirely by local Trumpers, not by the Trump campaign. The caravan of approximately 2,000 cars, many with whole families inside, drove 12 miles honking and waving American and Trump flags.

Byron York of The Washington Examiner said, “As far as I could tell, I was the only newsperson there.”

Data collected by the Trump campaign about planned rally attendees suggests that his base is expanding way past registered Republicans and people who voted for him in 2016. At three recent rallies in Pennsylvania, 14-24% of attendees were not Republicans and 21-22% did not vote in 2016.

ACB: Thank You, Lord!

CLICK [2:57] to hear Candace Owens speak truth to power. She is such a wonderful speaker.

Meanwhile, the ever-fair-and-balanced jerknalists at CNN and MSDNC didn’t bother to cover the confirmation vote.

ANTIFA: “Yesterday the New Yorker published a lengthy piece about Antifa in Portland which feels like it was written by someone who set out to write something positive about the group but who, after spending some time with them, couldn’t quite manage it. …

“It’s impossible to read this piece and come away thinking Antifa and their allies are the good guys. There is also some criticism of the Portland Police, but you can’t have murder, vandalism, beatings, arson, vehicular attacks and Molotov cocktails being used on a regular basis as part of a diversity of tactics and still maintain Antifa are victims. The whole piece is worth reading if you have the time.” – John Sexton

BACK THE BLUE: Operation Autumn Hope – During the month of October, U.S. Marshals recovered 45 missing children and made 169 arrests.

Operation Autumn Hope is a multi-agency law enforcement operation focused on human trafficking as well as finding missing or endangered children.

BLACK BLOC: I didn’t know there was a name for this – “A black bloc is a tactic used by protesters who wear black clothing, ski masks, scarves, sunglasses, motorcycle helmets with padding, or other face-concealing and face-protecting items. The clothing is used to conceal wearers’ identities and hinder criminal prosecution by making it difficult to distinguish between participants. It is also used to protect their faces and eyes from pepper spray, which is used by police during protests or civil unrest. The tactic allows the group to appear as one large unified mass. Black bloc participants are often associated with anarchism, anarcho-communism, communism, libertarian socialism, antifascism, or the anti-globalization movement.”

CATHOLIC: Opinion by Antonio Socci – “[This pope] has never before made an explicit public announcement like this that contradicts the official and perennial Magisterium of the Church. The novelty of this step is therefore enormous. …

“The papal utterance has thrown the Catholic world into bewilderment and confusion. But Bergoglio is not worried about this. For him questions of doctrine or morals or spirituality are useful only instrumentally, in service of an objective that is always only and totally political.”

HUNTER: I’m listening to Dan Bongino talking about how Slime Jerknalists are claiming the Hunter email story was broken by a “tabloid.”

The New York Post is the oldest newspaper in the country. It was founded in 1801 by Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.

IOWA: When the University of Northern Iowa’s Student Government voted to ban Students for Life of America, the affected students sent an appeal to UNI’s president., Mark Nook. He has ruled in favor of the pro-lifers saying that “by denying them recognition when they intend, in good faith, to engage in lawful activities, we deny them their right to free speech and assembly guaranteed to them by the First Amendment.”

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: The Slimers are doubling down on their hyper-politicization of what is supposed to be news that voters need to make wise decisions.

Their coverage of Joe Biden has been 62% positive.

Their coverage of Donald Trump has been 92% negative.

NEW YORK: Chucky Schmucker is an embarrassment.

Schumer: “Today … will go down as one of the darkest days in the 231-year history of the United States Senate.” – Oct 26, 2020 (Amy Coney Barrett confirmed to SCOTUS)

Schumer: “This resolution will go down as one of the darker moments in Senate history.” – Jan 25 2020 (President Trump’s impeachment vote)

Schumer: This will “mark today as one of the darkest … days in the long history of this Senate.” – Dec 1, 2017 (Tax bill)

NY POST: The nation’s oldest newspaper has endorsed Donald Trump and is still locked out of its Twitter account.

OOPS: I saw this on FB – “Are you freakin serious??? So after leaving the drive thru today, I took my sandwich out of the bag and I see THIS!! Seriously? Oh not today, not today!! I went back to the restaurant, went INSIDE (already fuming), asked to speak to the manager and then threw the sandwich on the counter. I asked him for an explanation. He looked confused, so I pointed at the writing on the sandwich and demanded that he tells me why someone felt the need to write it on my sandwich. He answered, “because you ordered a BLT with cheese??” To which I replied “Oh.”

PENNSYLVANIA: West Philadelphia – More than 30 police officers were injured in West Philadelphia Monday night after anti-cop rioters clashed with authorities following a police-involved shooting.

The whole thing started after 27-year-old Walter Wallace, a black man, brandished a knife at officers who were responding to a domestic violence call. Instead, video from the incident shows him failing to respond to multiple orders to drop the weapon and lunging at the police, who had their weapons drawn. Two officers then fired at Wallace, who was hit several times and died at the scene.

The incident kicked off a massive protest-turned-riot, during which 30 people were arrested and more than two-dozen officers were wounded as violent activists vandalized buildings and vehicles, lit dumpsters on fire, and broke multiple store windows. Others busted into shops and began hauling shoes and clothes away in black garbage bags.

POLLS: Like Trafalgar, the pollsters at USC Dornsife say their “social circle” question (i.e., how do your friends plan to vote?) is predicting that Biden will win the popular vote by a large margin, but will narrowly lose the Electoral College and, thus, the White House.

In 2016, this question predicted outcomes more accurately than either the own-intention question or aggregate polling. For example, it got right four of the five swing states that unexpectedly went to Trump (Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin). The own-intention question only got three of them and aggregate polling got none.

PROJECT VERITAS: Massive voter fraud by operative for Mauro Garza who is running for Congress for Texas-20. In the 17:47 video, Raquel Rodriguez admits repeatedly that she’s breaking the law in multiple ways … while she wears her little gold cross necklace. ::gagme::

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: Remember when the Left shrieked at us for more than two years that Putin owned Trump, because of some sex tapes he had that Trump wouldn’t want anyone to see?

Guess what?! Surprise (not). The real person who is owned by Putin because of sex tapes is … wait for it … Hunter Biden and his skeezy dad.

Joe made his son, Hunter, the Biden Crime Family’s bag man. Hunter arranged big money deals with countries hostile to the U.S. in exchange for access to Joe. He gave half of the take to Joe and used the other half to support himself and the rest of the Biden clan.

And because they’re not stupid, the people who bought Joe bought insurance for themselves in the form of blackmail photos/videos of Hunter, who cheerfully took advantage of the sex and drug opportunities offered to him.

SOUR GRAPES: @HillaryClinton tweet – “It is an insult to the American people that the GOP is ramming through a Supreme Court justice with just eight days until the end of an election in which nearly 60 million people have already voted.” (Oct 26, 2020)

@BattleSwarmBlog reply – “It is an insult to the American people that @realDonaldTrump beat you fair and square four years ago and you and your cadre of corrupt cronies have done everything you could to ignore that and obstruct his constitutional powers and duties.” (Oct 26, 2020)

TEXAS: The Texas Army National Guard will be sending up to 1,000 troops to five cities across the state to support local officials ahead of Election Day.

UNEXPECTED STAR: This is a fun show, kind of a combination of Candid Camera and Britain’s Got Talent. CLICK [19:55] to see Kiera.

WALK AWAY: Today’s excerpt – My two daughters have been in college for years and have been brainwashed into being Democrats. I talked to them for years without making a dent. What finally push them over the edge was Hunter Biden’s laptop. They finally have their eyes open.

GRAMMY NOTES: My spell check is as sleepy as I am.

    This past Saturday there was a large Trump parade … in liberal Williamsburg, VA. It caused a traffic jam, which ticked off the grouchy Biden supporters. The only places around Williamsburg that have Biden signs are in the swanky neighborhoods or near the College of William & Mary. I never thought that I would see so many Trump signs in Williamsburg.

    New York Post is not the nation’s oldest newspaper. The title of the oldest continously published paper in the U.S. belongs to the Hartford Courant in Connecticut, first published October 29, 1764. The Virginia Gazette began publishing in 1736 and is still published today. (Wikipedia lists the Gazette as first being published in 1930, which is 100% incorrect.) The Gazette printed the entire text of the Declaration of Independence on July 26, 1776 — I have a reproduced copy. The Gazette was an important newspaper during the Revolutionary War. (Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson read the Gazette when they came to Williamsburg.) The British
    General Cornwallis surrendered at nearby Yorktown, October 1781, the Gazette covered the event.

    I worked for over 22 years for Tribune Publishing which owns both Virginia Gazette and Hartford Courant. In February Tribune decided they didn’t want a middle-aged graphic designer anymore. With what the mainstream media has become, I’m glad I no longer work for that company.
