Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

Senate Committee Report Confirms Hunter Biden Used Dad’s Connections to Make Millions

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 23, 2020:  

The long-delayed and greatly anticipated report on Hunter Biden’s history of corruption in Ukraine was finally released on Wednesday. A majority of Americans knew he benefited from the Biden name, but few knew the real extent of the corruption and its cover-up by the Obama administration until now.

The chairs of the report, Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), wrote:

On April 16, 2014, Vice President Biden met with his son’s business partner, Devon Archer, at the White House. Five days later, Vice President Biden visited Ukraine, and he soon after was described in the press as the “public face of the administration’s handling of Ukraine.”

 

The day after his visit, on April 22, Archer joined the board of Burisma….

 

On May 12, Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, and over the course of the next several years, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were paid millions of dollars from a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch for their participation on the board.

When that “oligarch,” Mykola Zlochevsky, owner of Burisma, paid a bribe to release some $23 million that had been seized by the British government over charges of his corruption, Hunter Biden had been on the board for seven months.

When Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, George Kent, learned about the bribe, he “raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board.” His concerns were ignored.

John McCain’s Widow Endorses Biden, Says He’s “Good and Decent.”

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 23, 2020:  

Cindy McCain, John McCain’s widow, formally endorsed Joe Biden for the presidency of the United States on Tuesday. Although admitting that she and Biden didn’t always agree on issues, at bottom she said, “he is a good and decent man.”

No, he is not. A “good and decent” man wouldn’t lie, and then lie again after the lie was exposed. A “good and decent” man wouldn’t twist history for his personal aggrandizement. A “good and decent” man wouldn’t deny his faith in order to be politically correct and acceptable.

Yet Biden has done all of these, and more.

Some current lies include Biden’s claim that he called for a government shutdown one week before Trump. There is no evidence whatsoever that he made a statement like that of any kind. On the contrary, he is on record as vocally opposing Trump’s early travel ban on China.

Biden claims that he has no recollection of his alleged sexual assault on his former staffer Tara Reade, and yet has moved Heaven and Earth to block the University of Delaware from releasing his Senate papers at the time of the alleged assault that would prove his innocence.

He recently told audiences that after leaving the White House, “I became a teacher. I became a professor.” No, he didn’t. He got paid for making some speeches at the University of Pennsylvania, but he never taught a single student.

He has a long history of lying. He boasted about his “arrest” in South Africa for supposedly attempting to visit Nelson Mandela, for which Mandela later thanked him. None of that is true: not the arrest, not the attempted visit, and not the “thank you” note he supposedly received from Mandela.

He destroyed his first run for the presidency in 1987 when he was caught in a lie about being the first person in his family to attend college.

Said Biden at the time:

Why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go to a university? Why is it that my wife who is sitting out there in the audience is the first in her family to ever go to college? Is it because our fathers and mothers were not bright? Is it because I’m the first Biden in a thousand generations to get a college and a graduate degree that I was smarter than the rest?

That was nearly a direct quote from a British Labor leader, Neil Kinnock, who said: “Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Why is Glenys [his wife] the first woman in her family in a thousand generations to be able to get to university?”

He lied about his accomplishments as a student:

Amy Coney Barrett: the Perfect Candidate to Replace Ginsburg?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, September 21, 2020:

At a North Carolina rally on Friday night, President Trump said, “I will put forward a nominee next week” to fill the seat vacated by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He added: “It will be a woman … a very talented, a very brilliant woman. Who I haven’t chosen yet, but we have numerous women on the list.”

On Monday he indicated he will announce his choice on Friday or Saturday.

Amy Coney Barrett was on his short list in 2018 and remains at the top of his expanded list in 2020, according to close associates of the president.

She is a nearly perfect candidate.

Latest Poll: Rust Belt Voters Support Fracking

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Sunday, September 20, 2020: 

The results from The Epoch Times’ Rust Belt Poll released on Sunday provide one more reason why the president is likely to repeat his 2016 miracle in Pennsylvania, where he won by 44,000 votes out of 6.2 million cast: A plurality of the 3,500-plus registered and likely voters polled last week in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin, and especially Pennsylvania support fracking.

On the surface it shouldn’t be a surprise:

Trump to Name Woman to Replace Justice Ginsburg; Expect Contentious Confirmation Hearing

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Sunday, September 20, 2020:  

At a rally in North Carolina on Friday night President Trump promised that he would nominate a woman to fill the vacancy left on the Supreme Court with the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “I will put forward a nominee next week. It will be a woman … a very talented, a very brilliant woman. Who I haven’t chosen yet, but we have numerous women on the list.”

Trump recently expanded that list, but two women vying for his nomination clearly appear to be Amy Coney Barrett, who presently serves as a judge on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals; and Barbara Lagoa, a judge on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. A staffer listening in on the president’s call to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the matter said they were the top contenders. Trump is expected to make his choice public early in the week.

It doesn’t matter whom the president selects. The far Left has already announced that it will fight the nomination vigorously and viciously, making the confirmation battle over Justice Brett Kavanaugh appear mild in comparison.

The battle lines have already been drawn. At issue will be

New Jersey the Fourth State to Enact “Millionaires” tax

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, September 18, 2020:  

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy says he doesn’t hold a grudge against anyone making more than a million dollars a year in his state.

It’s just that he needs their money more than they do. It’s their duty to “sacrifice”: “We do not hold any grudge at all against those who have been successful in life. But in this unprecedented time, when so many middle-class families and others have sacrificed so much, now is the time to ensure that the wealthiest among us are also called to sacrifice.”

Murphy made the announcement on Thursday, adding that he expects the two-percent increase — from 8.75% to 10.75% on incomes of a million and up — will raise $390 million this year alone. He’s using his state’s $10 billion shortfall in revenues as an excuse.

He expects the increase to fall on about 16,500 residents, assuming that they stand still for the plucking.

Most are likely to stand still for the shearing, but

Biden Staffers Nervous Over His Upcoming Presidential Debate Performance

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, September 18, 2020:

After visiting with a number of Joe Biden’s campaign staffers, Amie Parnes, writing for The Hillquoted one of them: “The only way he [Biden] wins is if he stays on offense. The second it goes the other way, things could go sideways.”

The Democrat Party’s presidential candidate has been prepping for weeks ahead of the first presidential debate scheduled for September 29. The strategy is simple, but not easy: Biden must go on offense and stay on offense. He’ll do that by challenging the president repeatedly over his alleged failures to contain the COVID virus, resulting in the deaths of more than 200,000 Americans.

“It’s all on you [Mr. President],” said another staffer. “The state of the economy, high unemployment, kids out of school, a pandemic that has gone unchecked. All of it is on you.”

Another staffer told Parnes that Biden “has a tendency to wrap up very well but he’s one of those people who takes some time to get there. He’s just not a guy who performs well in those initial moments. I think that’s something that makes us all a little nervous.”

As a result, reported Parnes,

There is a palpable fear among some Democrats about whether Biden is up for the challenge, and whether being too aggressive could backfire.

 

They’ve cringed when Biden has given long-winded answers or trailed off without returning to his initial thought, and when he’s gone off message or said the wrong name or city.

A reputed former staffer intimately familiar with the situation inside the Biden campaign wrote anonymously on September 9 about his experience:

I worked as a low-level staffer for the Biden campaign’s HQ in Philly from July to the end of August. I am more of a Bernie guy, but I thought I should do whatever I could to defeat Trump, so I joined up. Eventually, I became so disgusted with what was going on, I had to leave.

He noted, “There are people whose job is to digitally de-age Biden for political ads. If you saw a recent speech for Joe and thought he looked like a mummy, then saw snippets of the same speech in an ad, you might have noticed he looked a lot better. That’s because they contracted VFX artists from California to de-age him. Normally I wouldn’t begrudge them this, as I’m sure all campaigns try to make their candidate look good.”

And then he made the main point:

Is Joe Biden Suffering from “Sundowning”?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, September 17, 2020:

The Mayo Clinic defines “sundowning” as “a state of confusion occurring in the late afternoon and spanning into the night. Sundowning can cause a variety of behaviors, such as confusion, anxiety, aggression or ignoring directions … [it is] a group of symptoms that occur at a specific time of the day that may affect people with dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease.”

Is the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee Joe Biden suffering from “sundowning”? Andrea Widburg thinks so. Writing on Wednesday at the American Thinker she noted that “most of Biden’s appearances are early in the day. He may do this because he tires easily and, by afternoon, is running on empty.”

She added:

Pennsylvania Is the Key to Each of Trump’s Paths to the White House

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, September 17, 2020:  

Rob Crilly, the Washington Examiner’s White House correspondent, viewed the Trump campaign’s seven paths to victory in the November election and learned that in each one Pennsylvania is key.

This is the state that Trump won by a scant 44,000 votes out of 6.2 million cast, a sliver strong enough to give him the victory in 2016. Crilly said the seven scenarios “push back against claims that President Trump had a limited path to victory and illustrate multiple ways he could win.”

The paths reflect several possibilities, ranging from a “blowout” win in November to a much closer win based on “Midwest strength.” But each scenario needs him to win Pennsylvania:

Wall Street Analyst: Stocks to Move Higher, Enhancing Trump’s Reelection Chances

In a note to his clients on Monday, LPL’s Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick said his company has raised its stock market expectations even higher, advising its clients to stay fully invested and enjoy the ride.

He said, “When the S&P 500 [index] has been up five straight months, as it was in April through August, stocks have historically kept going higher.” Historically, he told his clients, the last 26 times the market traded higher for five straight months, it was higher a year later 96 percent of the time.

President Trump Receives Endorsement From 235 Senior U.S. Military Leaders

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, September 15, 2020: 

The endorsement of President Trump by 235 active and retired military leaders on Monday is a direct refutation of the canard that emanated at The Atlantic, and which is still being circulated by the left-wing media. That carnard states that the president referred to Marines who died in World War I as “losers” and “suckers,” an accusation that at least 21 people who were with Trump at the time have refuted, including anti-Trumper John Bolton. Monday’s endorsement should bury the fabrication permanently.

The salient parts of the endorsement included the reminder that each of signers “took an oath to defend the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic” and a clear message that the signers consider the Democrat Party to be domestic enemies:

ABC News/Ipsos Poll Showing Trump in Trouble Was Skewed Against Him

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, September 14, 2020:  

The latest poll by ABC News/Ipsos released over the weekend showed the president in deep trouble over his handling of the coronavirus and his lack of respect for the military. The results reported 65 percent of those polled disapproving of his handling of the crisis, 67 percent thinking he acted too slowly, and 52 percent not trusting the president at all when he speaks about the pandemic.

In addition the poll results showed that

California Mega-church Defies Latest Court Order Prohibiting Indoor Worship Services

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, September 14, 2020:  

When the senior pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, John MacArthur, opened services on Sunday, he said:

The question has come up a number of times about why Grace Church does not just comply with the orders that have been laid down for churches, and I thought it might be helpful to give you a list of the things that are required of us as a church, so that you understand how utterly impossible that would be.

He then ran through the list of restrictions Los Angeles County Health Officer Buntu Davis placed on the church in order for it to be able to hold services. It was a long list, and MacArthur was interrupted several times with laughter from his congregation.

Before moving on to the service itself, MacArthur added: “Obviously, this is not constitutional, but more importantly, it goes against the will of the Lord of the church, Who calls us together.”

That is the core issue: whether the county can prohibit the church from holding services indoors, claiming the right to do so in the name of public health, or whether such an order exceeds the state’s authority in light of both the Federal and California constitutions.

And that is the issue that Mitchell Beckloff, the Superior Court Judge, skirted in his 22-page ruling against the church on Thursday.

He danced around it, claiming that his order against the church was merely a temporary restraining order and not a ruling on the merits:

More Americans Losing Trust in Media, Says Knight Foundation

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, September 14, 2020: 

In its biennial report on how Americans view the national media the Knight Foundation found that “many Americans feel the media’s critical role of informing and holding those in power accountable is compromised by increasing bias. As such, Americans have not only lost confidence in the ideal of an objective media, they believe news organizations actively support the [current] partisan political divide.”

An astonishing 86 percent of the 20,000 American citizens the group polled see either “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of political bias in the news coverage they receive. Further, the group found that citizens say that a lot of it is “intentional”, accusing some in the media of simply making up the facts necessary to promote a preordained agenda:

Americans perceive inaccurate news to be intentional — either because the reporter is misrepresenting the facts (54%) or making them up entirely (28%).

Nearly 8 in 10 Americans (79%) say news organizations they distrust are trying to

Goldman Sachs Expects 35-percent Growth in U.S. Economy in Third Quarter — Good for Trump

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, September 14, 2020: 

In a note to its clients on Thursday, international investment banking firm Goldman Sachs said it “upgraded” its estimate of the robust rebound of the U.S. economy for the third quarter, adding that the momentum will continue into the fourth quarter and 2021 as well:

We upgraded our near-term growth forecasts based on the much stronger-than-expected August jobs report and the solid summer data more generally….

 

Our forecast of 35 percent is now nearly 14 percentage points above [Wall Street’s] consensus….

 

Looking beyond this quarter, we remain upbeat on growth.… In our view, the combination of a still-very-high personal savings rate, and a likely vaccine, should lead to reaccelerating demand in these sectors.

Others are getting on board. Marko Kolanovic, a quantitative strategist at J.P. Morgan Chase told his clients two weeks ago: “We currently believe that momentum in favor of Trump will continue, while most investors are still positioned for a Biden win.” Accordingly he told his clients to “adjust [their portfolios] for a potential Trump re-election.”

The day after Goldman Sachs issued its upgrade Beacon Policy Advisors analyst Ben Koltun confirmed, explaining why:

Court-appointed Advisor Urges Judge to Deny Motion to Dismiss the Michael Flynn Case, and to Sentence Him for Perjury

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Saturday, September 12, 2020:

John Gleeson, the retired judge whom District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan asked to make his case against Michael Flynn for him, did just that on Friday. Wrote Gleeson:

There is clear evidence that the Government’s case against Defendant Michael T. Flynn rests on pure pretext.

 

There is clear evidence that this motion [to dismiss from the Department of Justice] reflects a corrupt and politically motivated favor unworthy of our justice system….

 

In resolving the Government’s request for [dismissal of its case against Flynn], the only evidence that ultimately matters is the record I have outlined above: a record replete with patently pretextual attempts to justify what is plainly a corrupt political errand for the President.

 

Given this evidence … the Court [Sullivan] can — and should — deny the Government’s motion … and then proceed to sentence Flynn for his crime.

This threat has been hanging over the head of Trump’s former National Security Advisor since 2017. Initially the government brought charges against Flynn for

Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police Endorses Trump

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Saturday, September 12, 2020:

Following the unanimous endorsement of President Trump’s reelection by the board of directors of the Chicago chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police on September 2, chapter president John Catanzara said, “There’s definitely people who are not going to be happy about it. There are more Democrats, locally speaking, but there’s even some Democrats who would agree that the current president has been very good for employment and law enforcement these days.”

Catanzara has been vocal in his condemnation of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, writing to President Trump in July that she “has proved to be a complete failure, who is either unwilling or unable to maintain law and order here … these politicians are failing the good men and women of this city and the police department.”

He told news outlet Patch.com on Friday that Democrats

Study: Pollsters Being Misled by Their Respondents

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, September 11, 2020:  

The “shy voter” may be skewing political poll results reported by the mainstream pollsters, according to survey firm CloudResearch. Said lead researcher Leib Litman, “Lately there’s been considerable debate over the accuracy of presidential polls. While recent polls show Joe Biden ahead, a number of pundits speculates that some Donald Trump supporters may be hesitant to share their true opinions when polled by phone.”

Yesterday CNN reported that its “poll of polls” showed Biden leading Trump by eight points. Those polls included results from CNN/SSRS, Quinnipiac University, Grinnell College, and ABC/Washington Post.

CNBC reported the same day on poll results from six “swing states,” claiming that not only does Biden lead Trump in every one (Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin), but that President Trump received no post-convention “bounce.”

How is that possible? The New American and other reporting outlets have catalogued Trump’s enormous gains among young black and Hispanic voters;
