Post-debate poll: Trump leads Biden by three points in Pennsylvania

October 26, 2020


According to a new post-debate poll released by the conservative organization American Greatness, incumbent President Donald Trump has a three-point lead over former Vice President Joe Biden in the swing state of Pennsylvania.

The study’s results found that Trump gained a three-point lead over Biden after Thursday night’s final presidential debate, with Trump and Biden at 48.4% and 45.5% respectively with a stated margin of error of plus or minus 4.9%. Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian Party’s nominee for president, got 3%. 3% of respondents said they were undecided.

The poll, conducted the night of October 25, surveyed 400 likely Pennsylvania voters via IVR and live cell phone interviews.

A previous poll that AG conducted between October 12 and 13 gave Biden a three-point lead in Pennsylvania but showed that lead narrowing.

For why they believe this change occurred, InsiderAdvantage’s Matt Towery offered some of his own analysis, however, he did not cite any sources to back up his claims.

“Since the debate Trump has picked up support from younger voters, who based on our prior survey strongly oppose future lockdowns over Covid-19 spikes,” Towery said.

Other demographic groups that Towery claimed were pivotal for Trump in this latest data shift were male voters, senior voters, and African Americans, whom Trump has been gaining further traction with.

Another reason that Towery points to is Biden’s recent statements regarding fracking.

“It would be nothing more than mere conjecture to attempt to correlate Biden’s statements on energy and fracking in the last debate contest with the shift towards Trump in this survey,” he wrote.

It’s important to note that fracking is an important issue for many Pennsylvanians, especially those in the western part of the state where both campaigns have been particularly directing their efforts. Trump has been a vocal advocate for fracking, while Biden has been broadly opposed to it, though Biden has not been consistent in specific views on the issue.

Massive meth, fentanyl lab and other facilities raided by Mexican authorities

October 26, 2020


According to the Associated Press, Mexican authorities raided a meth and fentanyl lab last week capable of processing 11,000 pounds (5,000 kg) of raw material at a time, the country’s federal Attorney General’s Office announced on Sunday. The sheer size of the facility left authorities in shock.

“In the Attorney General’s Office, we have no record of any seizure of equipment of this size before,” said Felipe de Jesus Gallo of the federal Attorney General’s Office. He also said that the lab had two-story-tall chemical preparation vats.

Last week, the “mega-lab” was discovered on the outskirts of Mexico City, CBS News reported. A fake storefront advertising industrial cleaning products was used to conceal the warehouse in which the lab was located. The warehouse housed 265-gallon tanks containing precursor chemicals as well as stacks of drums. According to Gallo, these chemicals can be used for manufacture methamphetamines and synthetic opioid fentanyl.

In addition to this warehouse, other sites across the country were also raided as part of the operation that was code-named “Blue.” Some of these other sites were located in the states of Durango and Sonora in the north, other parts of Mexico City, as well as in the surrounding State of Mexico.

A raid at another property in Mexico City saw the arrest of an engineer and the seizure of a drum of what is thought to be a fentanyl precursor and instructions on how to go about processing it. The engineer supposedly constructed and operated labs for an organized crime group.

Furthermore, another raid at a lab in Sonora discovered 290 kilograms (639.34 pounds) of meth, some of which was intended for shipment to the United States, said Gallo. The batch was said to have “a high level of purity.”

Authorities suspect that the group running this drug operation is one based out of Sinaloa, evidence of which linked all these raids together.

The intelligence gathered by Mexican marines points to the source of the fentanyl precursors as China but imported through a Hong Kong company, per CBS News. A multi-container shipment of these precursors reportedly entered through a port in Baja California after being shipped out from a port in Japan, the marines said they had tracked.

Election Results: When will Minnesota’s ballots be counted by?

October 26, 2020


So far, this series of explainers has visited the swing states of Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—looking at when each might release their election results. Now let’s visit the Land of 10,000 Lakes: Minnesota.

For an explanation about the difference between mail-in and absentee ballots, check out this piece here by Ben Wilson: The Difference Between Absentee and Mail-In Ballots.

Minnesota has been one of the most consistently Democratic states in the country. Like Michigan and Wisconsin, Minnesota forms part of the Democrats’ traditional “Blue Wall” of support in the Great Lakes region. The last time it voted for a Republican was for then-incumbent President Richard Nixon in 1972. In 1984, it and the District of Columbia were the only parts of the country to give the Democratic nominee, former Vice President Walter Mondale electoral votes. However, all that could change in a couple weeks.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won the state by a razor-thin 1.5-point margin in 2016, a 44,593-vote difference between her and then-GOP nominee Trump. That’s a far cry from 2012, when then-President Barack Obama won the state by 8 points.

All of that being said, there’s a ton of pressure on humble Minnesota.

To prevent a backlog of ballots to count on Election Day, election workers have already begun counting absentee ballots. 60% of the requested absentee ballots in Ramsey County—where St. Paul is situated—have already been returned, CBS News 4 WCCO reports. So far, over 900,000 Minnesotans have voted.

How the ballot counting process works, according to deputy auditor Heather Bestler, is: “The ballots are scanned, the machine reads them and stores the information. Then, at 8 p.m. on election night, we hit tabulate. And that’s when we get all the results.”

According to the same WCCO report by Christiane Cordero, Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon, the state’s head of elections, has said that the state is in a relatively good position to turn in results quickly.

One thing to keep in mind is that a state court and Simon agreed to allow ballots to be counted that are postmarked on Election Day and received by clerks up to seven days afterward, in anticipation of the U.S. Postal Service being weighed down with ballots.

All things considered, most of the results could likely be released within the two weeks following November 3, assuming that things go as planned.

Chelsea Handler on her ex 50 Cent support for Trump: ‘I had to remind him he was a black person’

October 25, 2020


Raunchy comedian Chelsea Handler used another comedian’s show to send a very disparaging message to her ex-boyfriend 50 cent. In a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, she said her ex-boyfriend rapper 50 Cent, was putting money over the Black community. He’s just a smart businessman.

But to say he’s putting money over the Black community is flat out wrong and reveals Hollywood’s lies and propaganda . Under President Donald Trump the minority communities across the board, and yes, specifically the Black community has been at the lowest it’s ever been. Just remember that Handler, and those in Hollywood, push socialist agendas and don’t care if they lie to the public. In fact, some of them even believe their own lies.

Under a Joe Biden administration taxes can soar as high as 62 percent! Wow, that’s insane, if you ask me.

“Yeah, I don’t want to be 20cent…62 % is a very, very, bad idea. I don’t like it!”

50 Cent

Weirdly, 50 Cent’s desperate ex said she would be willing to give to make it worth his while if he publicly denounces POTUS.

“So he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from ’50 Cent’ to ’20 Cent’ and I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump,” she told Fallon.

She added that 50 “shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook.

Remember what life was like before COVID-19?

Last October, CNBC, along with every other media company, was astonished when the unemployment numbers came out showing African Americans and Asian Americans had the lowest unemployment rate ever. This is what Trump economics has done and can do again.

  • The jobless rate for Hispanics hit a record low of 3.9% in September, while African Americans maintained its lowest rate ever, 5.5%.
  • The unemployment rate for Asian Americans was 2.5% in September. The jobless rate for adult women came in at 3.1%.

50 cent isn’t just a rapper, he’s actually more of a successful businessman. He knows that cutting taxes, bringing jobs back to America and investing in both urban and rural in communities across the country is what puts money in peoples pockets and gets them out of poverty.

It’s more important to give people the tools they need to make their lives better than to promise handouts without any hope that things will change , which is what the Democrats have done for decades now.

More recently, 50 Cent responded on Twitter to a Fox News segment hosted by Shannon Bream.

“Yeah, I don’t want to be 20cent,” he said. “62 % is a very, very, bad idea. I don’t like it!”

“What the F*CK! (VOTE ForTRUMP) I’m out,” said 50 Cent in a Tweet last week. “F*CK New York The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62 % are you out of ya fucking mind.”

Exactly, it’s simple economics.

Joe Biden: My son ‘has not made money in terms of…what are you talking about?’

October 25, 2020


Former Vice President Joe Biden told NBC News’ Kristen Welker Friday that his son Hunter Biden “has not made money in terms of… what are you talking about?”

She asked the Democratic nominee about the growing scandal and release of emails from the recently discovered Hunter Biden laptop allegedly showing extraordinary deep seated corruption regarding his son’s business dealings with foreign government, mainly China, Ukraine and Kazakstan.

“In retrospect, were any of those relationships inappropriate or unethical?” asked NBC News’ Kristen Welker.

“Nothing was an unethical, here’s what the deal… My son has not made money in terms of this thing about… What are you talking about?” asked former VP Joe Biden to NBC about his son, Hunter Biden.

Biden denied everything, saying even during the debate that his son “did not make money” off of China. That, however, appears to be incorrect as a Senate report reveals that Hunter Biden’s business has made roughly over $5 million from a a Chinese Oil Company CEFC.

Moreover, he was receiving roughly $50,000 plus from Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings every month to sit on the company’s board. There are also substantial questions about other business dealings including an alleged $3.5 million transfer from a former Moscow mayor’s wife.

“Nothing was an unethical, here’s what the deal… My son has not made money in terms of this thing about… What are you talking about?” asked Biden.
