Here is the genius of President Donald Trump and his administration: They now have the Democrats sticking up for Iran. – No kidding, take a look at what San Fran Nan had to say yesterday in response to the joint press conference by DNI John Ratcliffe and worthless FBI Director Christopher Wray that both Iran and Russia are trying to interfere in this election:
“Iran is a bad actor but in no way equivalent [to Russia].”@SpeakerPelosi says that despite the intelligence community’s disclosure about #Iran’s attempts of #ElectionInterference, #Russia is the real threat undermining the #Election in November. https://t.co/04Kr8ww8BE

“Iran is a bad actor, but in no way equivalent [to Russia].”
How pathetically un-American is that? But that is where the Democrats feel they need to go in order to keep pushing their “Russia Russia Russia” attack narrative against the President of the United States.
And speaking of pathetic Democrats… – In case you missed it due to the media blackout, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett yesterday in a vote that was both along party lines and unanimous. That’s because the petulant Democrat members of the committee all boycotted the committee meeting.
It just don’t get any more pathetic than that, folks.
And now, a bit of wonderful trivia from our “HO-LEE-CRAP” file… – Rasmussen reports tweets out the fact that Black voters’ approval of President Trump rose to…wait for it… 46%[!!!!] in its latest daily survey:
Morning Reader Data Points:
National Daily Black Likely Voter Job Approval For @POTUS – October 19-23, 2020
Mon 10/19 – 25%
Tue 10/20 – 24%
Wed 10/21 – 31%
Thu 10/22 – 37%
Fri 10/23 – 46%

My goodness. Obviously, job approval doesn’t necessarily translate into outright votes, but if the President’s share of the Black vote amounts to 1/3rd of that in this election, it will produce an unprecedented Red Wave election on November 3.
Hey, maybe this has something to do with it. – The Washington Examiner reports this morning that the rate of imprisonment for the Black community under Donald Trump’s presidency is the lowest it has been in 31 years. Equally as compelling, the rate of Hispanic incarceration is down by 24%.
Here’s an excerpt from that story:
America’s imprisonment rate has dropped to its lowest level since 1995, led by a dive in the percentage of blacks and Hispanics sent to jail during the Trump administration, according to a new Justice tally.
For minorities, the focus of President Trump’s First Step Act prison and criminal reform plan, the rate is the lowest in years.
For blacks, the imprisonment rate in state and federal prisons is the lowest in 31 years and for Hispanics it is down 24%.
“Across the decade from 2009 to 2019, the imprisonment rate fell 29% among black residents, 24% among Hispanic residents and 12% among white residents. In 2019, the imprisonment rate of black residents was the lowest it has been in 30 years, since 1989,” said the report.
Explaining the rate, Justice said, “At year-end 2019, there were 1,096 sentenced black prisoners per 100,000 black residents, 525 sentenced Hispanic prisoners per 100,000 Hispanic residents and 214 sentenced white prisoners per 100,000 white residents in the U.S. Among sentenced state prisoners at year-end 2018 (the most recent data available), a larger percentage of black (62%) and Hispanic (62%) prisoners than white prisoners (48%) were serving time for a violent offense.”
Oh. That’s some news you will never, never, ever see reported on CNN or MSNBC.
What if you give a press conference and the “press” refuses to show? – Former Hunter Biden/Joe Biden “business” partner Tony Bobulinski found out the hard way when he held a presser right before last night’s debate. Very predictably, almost nobody other than OANN and Fox News showed up.
Here is Ted Cruz excoriating the corrupt news media for its latest bit of malfeasance:
.@TedCruz on Fox News points out how ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and NBC all refused to carry the Tony Bobulinski press conference and that it's only a continuation of the censorship from Big Tech and the media to prevent "the American people" from "hear[ing] the facts" pic.twitter.com/o7V1hgJhL4

“It’s part of a pattern that we saw last week when the New York Post broke this story, and Big Tech – Twitter and Facebook – censored it, and essentially determined that the American people could not even hear the facts. I think the degree to which the media and Big Tech are shilling for Joe Biden, are protecting him, are covering him up and not even asking these questions, I think it’s really shameful.”
Yep, it really is, Senator.
But, while this current episode of the media shilling for the Democrats seems fresh and new to us in real-time, we should all remember that this really is not new behavior by our corrupt, worthless national news media. They’ve been doing this stuff for Democrats forever.
Go back to October 1919, and Woodrow Wilson’s stroke that left him incapacitated. Wilson’s wife essentially ran the government from then all the way through early 1921, and the pubic didn’t find out the truth for decades. Same with Franklin Roosevelt and his wheelchair. The media covered up that disability for decades. Same with John F. Kennedy’s massive drug abuse and affairs with the girlfriends of mob bosses and Russian spies, not to mention Marilyn Monroe. We didn’t find out about any of that stuff until 20-30 years later.
Remember how the Washington Post and Newsweek sat on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky story for months, and would have buried it altogether were it not for the fact that Matt Drudge decided to run with it on his then-fledgling website. And let’s not forget the solid wall of Omerta the media put up on behalf of the utterly despicable John Edwards and his fathering of an illegitimate child during the early phase 2008 presidential campaign.
This has been going on forever, folks. Our national news media has been rank, smelly, lying garbage for decades. It just seems new now because the fresh layer of rank, smelly garbage consisting of Twitter and Facebook has been layered over the top of it.
Look who thought President Trump won the debate last night:
Trump won this debate, handily. Biden wasn’t a force at all. Trump was substantive, on-point, well-tempered. Definitely helped himself, when it mattered most.

Megyn Kelly is right: Trump won the debate handily. I explain my reasoning fully in another piece this morning. Go read it. Now.
That is all.
