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...

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;

Fresh Polling Shows Trump Surging Among Black, Hispanic Voters

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, September 10, 2020: 

Rasmussen’s presidential tracking poll released on Tuesday showed President Trump’s approval rating among likely black voters is at 42 percent. Among “other non-white likely voters,” Trump’s approval rating is at 56 percent. According to Pew Research, just six percent of black voters supported the president in 2016.

One can do the math:

Trump Campaign Raises Record $210 Million in August, Lags Biden’s $365 Million August Haul

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 9, 2020:

With less than eight weeks before Election Day, each campaign is defining its final push by how it is spending its campaign funds. The Trump campaign told Fox News on Wednesday that it raised $210 million in August, its biggest month to date, but still short of the $365 million record set by the Biden campaign last month.

The strategies of the two opposing camps are totally different. The Biden campaign is tossing out its rule book — Groundbreakers: How Obama’s 2.2 Million Volunteers Transformed Campaigning in America — and instead is relying on air time almost exclusively.

Groundbreakers detailed how the Obama campaign transformed presidential campaigning through an aggressive ground game coupled with advanced information technology.

On the other hand, Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien is requiring every volunteer to read Groundbreakers before ringing a single doorbell or making a single phone call.

Said Stepien:

Both campaigns are raising massive amounts of money, but have very different priorities about how to spend it. In addition to advertising, President Trump’s campaign has invested heavily in a muscular field operation and ground game that will turn out our voters, while the Biden campaign is waging almost exclusively an air war.

 

We like our strategy better.

By early August, the Trump campaign had more than

Seattle Closes Park Ahead of Prayer Rally, Believers Worship Outside Anyway

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 9, 2020: 

Sean Feucht, head of the international Sean Feucht Ministries, planned to hold a prayer meeting at Seattle’s Gas Works Park on Labor Day, but the city issued a statement on September 4 saying that the park would be shut down on Labor Day due to COVID-19. Temporary fencing was set up to keep people out, with the city claiming that any Labor Day gatherings at the park could lead to “crowding that could impact the public health of residents.”

When Feucht learned of the shutdown, he posted the following to his Facebook page:

President Trump Threatens China With “Decoupling,” Accuses Biden of Being “Pawn” of Beijing

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, September 8, 2020: 

During a press conference in front of the White House on Monday, Labor Day, President Trump announced his intentions to “decouple” from China. Along the way he accused his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, of helping the Chinese to destabilize and weaken the United States through his support of China’s entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Said Trump:

We will make America into the manufacturing superpower of the world and will end our reliance on China once and for all.

 

Whether it’s decoupling, or putting in massive tariffs like I’ve been doing already, we will end our reliance on China because we can’t rely on China.

The president said that U.S. reliance on China continues to cost the United States billions of dollars every year:

Wall Street Selloff Putting Trump Reelection in Jeopardy?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, September 8, 2020:  

With Wall Street extending its pre-Labor Day selloff into Monday morning, stocks are close to giving back their historic gains made in August. To some the selloff also puts President Donald Trump’s reelection chances at risk.

According to LPL financial chief market strategist Ryan Detrick, the performance of the S&P 500 index in the three months leading up to the election has a nearly perfect record of predicting the election’s outcome. He says that the performance of that index has been the best predictor of presidential elections since 1984, proving 100-percent accurate — and is 87-percent accurate since the days of President Calvin Coolidge (1923-1929).

When that index is positive for those three months,

Fox News Analyst: Biden Not Appealing to Young Black Voters

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, September 8, 2020:  

In an interview at Fox & Friends on Monday, Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell said, “Joe Biden is part of the problem. Therefore I don’t understand how anyone could be thinking he could fix the injustices when he was the one who created them.”

He was referring to the 1994 Crime Bill which was sponsored by Biden:

We point clearly to the 1994 Crime Bill, which was sponsored by Sen. Joe Biden. One which gave $9.7 billion to build private prisons in our country and provided grants and incentivized states to create what we call the three-strike law [that requires both a severe violent felony and two other previous convictions for an individual to serve a mandatory life sentence in prison].

Caldwell predicted a Trump win in November:

“Blow Dryer Rebellion” Against Pelosi Hypocrisy Hands Trump Lethal Weapon

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Sunday, September 6, 2020: 

The hanging of blow dryers on trees in front of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home on Thursday is so trivial and yet so momentous in its implications that it could affect the outcome of the election.

Hardly a single voter hasn’t seen what Monica Showalter of American Thinker called the “Blow Dryer Rebellion”: angry hairstylists hanging blow dryers on a tree. Fewer still haven’t seen the security video that has gone viral showing Queen Nancy indulging herself in a “wash and blow dry” session at a tony salon without a mask while the common folk are prohibited from doing the same.

Said Showalter:

Pamela Geller is shut out of CPAC next week

I’ve heard her speak. Pamela Geller has rightly earned the sobriquet of “Islamaphobe” as she has railed in voice and word about “creeping Sharia” and “political Islam” in the US. There was standing room only for her talk when I first heard her.

And there have been standing room only crowds for her presentations in the past

Speaking of Dangerous Drones, Here Comes Breitbart

It was just a little over a year ago that Andrew Breitbart met an untimely end at the tender age of 43. I’m persuaded that he didn’t die of old age, but that’s a topic for another day. He left behind a thriving news aggregator called Breitbart.com which,

Jobs Reports Show the US Turning into a Part Time Worker Economy

When the two-part employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) was issued on Friday, the news was modestly positive: from its business “establishment” data it noted that employment increased by 162,000, a little less than expected but not far from the average of 175,000 new jobs a month that the economy has been generating for the last three months. The estimates for May and June were revised downward slightly but

Atlanta Mayor’s Spat with Street Vendors Goes National

A conservative journalist writing in the Atlanta-Journal-Constitution on Saturday, October 26th, claimed that Atlanta’s mayor blatantly broke the law and when a court demanded he uphold the law instead, he refused. The issue went national when the spat was picked up by the Wall Street Journal on Monday, the day before Atlanta voters were to go to the polls to

Chicago Crime Wave: More People Killed on Christmas Than Past Three Christmases Combined

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, December 27, 2016:  

A total of 61 people were shot in Chicago over the Christmas holiday weekend, with 11 of them dying from their wounds. Seven were murdered on Christmas Day alone, more than the last three Christmases combined.

This brings the grisly total to more than 4,252 people shot so far this year in Chicago, 770 of them fatally. Last year by comparison there were 2,989 people shot with 492 of them succumbing to their wounds. That’s an astonishing 56 percent increase in homicides in one year — and the year is not quite over yet.

The New American has been tracking the Windy City’s violence, suggesting back in April that,

Boomers’ Social Security Checks Being Garnished for Unpaid Student Loans

Seal of the United States Department of Education

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued its report on student loan repayments on Tuesday, revealing that 114,000 Americans age 50 and over had their Social Security checks garnished (the GAO calls them “offsets”), including 38,000 over age 65. In total the government recovered $171 million from this group last year, putting many of them into poverty.

Supreme Court Expected to Allow the EPA to Impose Severe Rules on Coal-fired Plants

With the decision by the Supreme Court to consider and probably reverse a lower court’s ruling that the EPA exceeded its authority in issuing a “cross-state” pollution rule last year, environmentalists were delighted. The lower court’s decision was “confusing”, according to Janice Nolen, assistant vice president of the American Lung Association, adding that

Hillaryland Scrambles to Delete Damaging E-mails

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, August 10, 2015: 

When U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered Hillary Clinton’s “right-hand person,” Huma Abedin, to attest under oath that she had in fact turned over all her e-mails to the Justice Department, he also included Hillary’s “left-hand person” as well: Cheryl Mills.

On Friday Mills’ attorney told the federal judge to take a hike — that he has all he’s going to get and that the other e-mails have been deleted:

Gallup and the November Midterms

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, September 26, 2018:  

In its latest poll, Gallup said:

Forty-five percent of Americans now have a favorable view of the Republican Party, anine-point gain [emphasis added] from last September’s 36%. It is the party’s most positive image since it registered 47% in January 2011….

 

The overall increase in the favorable image of the Republican Party is the result of a jump in positive views of Republicans, including independents who lean toward the party. The percentage of Republicans and leaners with favorable views of their party grew from 67% last September to 85% now.

Among men, Democrats “have completely lost their advantage,” wrote Breitbart. “A year ago, 40 percent of men viewed the Democrats favorably, while just 37 percent viewed the GOP favorably. Now Republicans are in favor with 50 percent of men [while] favorability toward Democrats climbed [just] one point … giving the Republicans a 9 point advantage.”

Among women, gains were also impressive. A year ago, just 35 percent of American women favored Republicans, but Gallup reported that 40 percent of them now view the party favorably. At the same time, Democrat favorability among women dropped by one point.

Across all income levels,
