Thousands Upon Thousands Welcome Trump inCalifornia

President Trump’s supporters are so enthusiastic that “thousands upon thousands” of them greeted the commander in chief in the deep-blue state of California on Sunday, according to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

Supporters lined the streets for miles, McEnany said on Twitter, as the president drove toward the home of Palmer Luckey, the co-founder of Oculus, for a fundraising event in Newport.

“Thousands upon thousands lined for miles along our motorcade route in CALIFORNIA to cheer on President @realDonaldTrump!!!!!” she said. 

Luckey, 28, sold his virtual reality company to Facebook for $2 billion in 2014, according to CNBC. He is one of the top Republican donors in the state. 

While Newport Beach is a conservative-leaning area in the deep-blue state, the enthusiasm is nevertheless similar to what the president has enjoyed across the country, as first evidenced by his high primary vote totals. 

[I]n 23 of the 27 states that held primaries both this year and in 2012, when President Obama ran for re-election, Trump has racked up higher raw vote totals than Obama did — often doubling or tripling his predecessor’s numbers. His primary vote totals also beat President George W. Bush’s in 2004.

The high Trump turnout showed up not only in reliably Republican states like Montana and Arkansas, but even in deep-blue strongholds and in purple states that Joe Biden hopes to flip come November.

In Michigan’s March primary, Trump’s 639,144 votes dwarfed the 174,054 that Obama notched in 2012. A few weeks later, Trump scored 713,546 votes in Ohio — more than twice Obama’s 2012 total of 285,990. (New York Post)

Now, as we inch closer to Election Day, Trump may be behind in surveys but as Matt reported Sunday, there’s an edge he’s enjoying that pollsters are failing to pick up on: "the surge in GOP voter registration in key states."

The Post Just Nailed the Liberal Medias Pathetic Excuse for Protecting Joe Biden to the Wall

The New York Post reported bombshell revelations last week concerning emails that expose how former Vice President Joe Biden helped his family enrich themselves by selling access to the White House. The emails -- obtained from a Hunter Biden laptop abandoned at a computer repair store -- must be politically devastating to the Biden campaign because the mainstream media is throwing out every excuse it can think of as a reason not to publish the news. The Post is now fighting back, calling out the liberal media for interfering in the election to protect Joe Biden. 

"Much of the push to ignore The Post’s drop of Hunter Biden’s e-mails centers on the charge that it’s all 'unverified,'" writes The Post's Editorial Board. "The claim is more excuse than truth."

The editors note that neither Hunter Biden nor Joe Biden have claimed the hard drive isn't real. The editors also point out that other news outlets have tracked down the computer repairman and confirmed the sourcing as reported by The Post. 

"It’s particularly rich that The New York Times has fixated on the 'unverified' excuse, since it’s spent much of the Trump era offering supposed dirt from anonymous sources — which, by definition, makes the info unverifiable," The editors write. 

The New York Times and the rest of the liberal media routinely push stories from "anonymous sources" to malign the president. The Post references The Atlantic's anonymously-sourced story about Trump calling fallen World War One soldiers "suckers" and "losers." That story reverberated around the mainstream media. And how exactly do we know the president's leaked tax returns are authentic? The information contained in the Steele Dossier certainly wasn't verified, and that never stopped the mainstream media. 

"Some of the stories proved completely false, as no less than former FBI chief Jim Comey (who also has zero motive to protect Trump) said at the time," the editors point out.

"Now, suddenly, with a trove of information — which, again, the Bidens aren’t even claiming is false — these same outlets want to ask endless questions about the chain of evidence. A chain of evidence that The Post has been up-front and open about."

The liberal media sees the finish line less than three w

Infectious Disease Expert The ‘Darkest Of The Entire Pandemic’ Has Yet To Come

Michael Osterholm

Michael Osterholm, an expert at the University of Minnesota, stressed that a lack of public confidence is largely to blame.

Michael Osterholm, a renowned infectious disease expert, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that “the next six to 12 weeks are going to be the darkest of the entire pandemic” and expressed concern that the U.S. lacks a leading voice to guide the public.

“Vaccines will not become available in any meaningful way until early to [the] third quarter of next year. And even then, about half of the U.S. population at this point is skeptical of even taking the vaccine,” said Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.

Osterholm pointed to the daily tally of 70,000 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. Friday, the highest level since July. Between now and the holidays, the number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. will likely “blow right through that,” he said.

He stressed that one reason for concern is that there are a number of voices guiding the public instead of just one, “which is part of the problem.”

“This is more than just science. This is bringing people together to understand why we are doing this. This is FDR fireside chat approach, and we’re just not doing that,” he said, referring to President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s evening radio addresses during the Great Depression that boosted public confidence.

Osterholm said the goal is to achieve herd immunity, not by allowing people to contract the virus, but by inoculating them through a vaccination program. That requires strengthening public confidence.

“We need somebody to start to articulate, ‘What is our long-term plan? How are we going to get there? Why are we asking people to sacrifice distancing? Why are we telling people if you really love your family, you won’t go home for Thanksgiving or Christmas and end up infecting mom or dad or grandpa and grandma.’ We don’t have that storytelling going on right now, and that’s every bit as important as the science itself,” he said.

Osterholm expected COVID-19 cases to rise in coming we

Millions of Americans are entering poverty amid pandemic as stimulus runs out

Millions of Americans have been thrown into poverty as government aid dried up in the last five months, according to a pair of studies, and those ranks will likely swell without more relief on the way.

“Poverty is rising in the United States,” Zach Parolin, a researcher at the Columbia University's Center on Poverty and Social Policy told Yahoo Finance (video above). “More families, once again, are struggling to put food on the table, struggling to provide for their families at a time when we have the means to be able to help them out.”

Eight million more Americans fell below the poverty threshold since May, a study by Columbia University found. A similar study from the University of Chicago and Notre Dame estimated 6 million Americans entered poverty for the same period. 

Without further government intervention, more Americans could follow, facing food insecurity, utility shutoffs, and even homelessness.

Poverty in the U.S. actually declined at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, thanks largely to two provisions in the CARES Act: stimulus checks and the extra $600 in weekly unemployment benefits.

Since then, there has been no second round of checks, and the extra unemployment benefits expired at the end of July. The Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) program — enacted by the president to make up some of the difference in unemployment — mostly expired in September, leaving unemployed workers with only their regular state benefits that replace much less of their wages.
