WATCH: Biden Event In Minnesota Appears to Have More Trump Supporters Present Than Biden Supporters

by the DC Patriot On Friday during a campaign event in Minnesota, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to draw out more President Donald Trump supporters than his own. “Minnesota Trump supporters growing in size outside vast empty parking lot holding Biden Event,” said photojournalist Rebecca Brannon on Twitter.

Scott Atlas Offers a Very Washington, DC Apology

by Adam Dick Scott Atlas, a coronavirus policy advisor for President Donald Trump, was recently interviewed about coronavirus policy by Afshin Rattansi at the RT show Going Underground. That should be no surprise. Talking with someone at RT is one among various avenues Atlas has pursued to try to put his coronavirus policy views out for more people to hear.  It is after the interview aired that things got weird. On Sunday, Atlas apologized in a Twitter post for agreeing to be interviewed for the show. Atlas stated: I recently did an interview with RT and was unaware they are a registered foreign agent. I regret doing the interview and apologize for allowing myself to be taken advantage of. I especially apologize to the national security community who is w...
Totalitarianism Is Taking Over America

Totalitarianism Is Taking Over America

by Gary D. Barnett We are in the midst of the most dangerous time to liberty since this country was founded. Actually, we have already had more loss of freedom, and more tyranny just this year than has ever happened to the country as a whole. California, a state that leads in tyrannical behavior by the political class, has taken tyranny to a more ludicrous level. The criminal cretin governor in California is Gavin Newsom, and he is now attempting to mandate all behavior for personal households for Thanksgiving and Christmas. To gain obedience to such draconian and insane rules would be the end of California, but that might be a blessing in disguise, as the west coast is a poster child for dictatorial and control tactics. The California Department of Health (CDHP) mandates can be ...

Misperceptions of COVID Risk and the Media

by Conor Norris Despite the blistering pace of the 24-hour news cycle, COVID-19 has dominated headlines since the beginning of 2020 and will continue to for the foreseeable future. But for all the time we’ve spent watching and reading pandemic media, we still don’t have an accurate perception of the risk we face from COVID-19. I am not talking about a slight misperception. People surveyed are spectacularly wrong, despite, or because of, wall-to-wall coverage of the pandemic.  Here are the stats. Among those surveyed by Gallup, on average respondents thought that just under 58 percent of COVID-19 deaths were people aged 55 and up. In reality, 92 percent of deaths fall in that age range. At the same time, they overestimate the risk for young people. Respondents ...

President Trump Announces Executive Order To Protect Fracking During Live Rally In Pennsylvania

by the DC Patriot During his final rally of the day in Montoursville, PA, President Trump announced that he signed a brand new executive order to protect Pennsylvania’s fracking and energy industry. After Biden’s repeated attacks on the oil industry, President Trump signed this order to double down on his promise to the people of Pennsylvania.

Six Social Security Scams

by Laurence M. Vance An article titled “Six Scams that Prey on the Elderly” that appeared on Kiplinger.com last year has recently been reposted on Pocket. Although there is a Social Security scam that the author (Miriam Cross) mentions as one of the six, the fact that Social Security itself is a scam is never mentioned. “Many scams are universal,” begins Cross, “from the IRS impostor who calls and threatens to arrest you if you don’t pay your taxes, to phishing emails that trick you into sending sensitive data or downloading malware onto your computer.” But some scams specifically target the elderly. “Older adults may fall for certain scams because they are in the habit of answering calls from unknown callers, open junk mail rather than tossing it in the trash, or are not as p...

Mask-hating Republicans Make for a Better Road Trip

by Adam Dick Traveling around Texas, I have found that areas where election votes go strongly in favor of Republican candidates tend, during the coronavirus crackdown, to be the best for stopping for gas, food, or other shopping, or just to use a restroom. In these areas it seems I am least likely to be accosted by some person telling me to put on a mask. Indeed, often in these areas a store will not have a “Masks Required” sign on the door and employees will not be wearing masks or will be wearing them on their chins or with their noses exposed. In contrast, stops where the election votes go strongly in favor or Democrats, I have found, more likely feature “Mask Required” signs. Stores in these areas also seem more likely to have employees who have fully covered noses and mouths an...

COVID-19 and Liberty

by Christine Smith If there’s one thing we’ve learned about the public’s understanding and practice of liberty from the pandemic, it’s that some when pushed to the brink will rebel. Sometimes, for humans to learn, takes a loss of liberty to awaken them. Currently, millions want their states to “open up” while local governments say “no.” People lost much during this pandemic: livelihoods, freedom of movement and assembly, freedom of worship, and freedom of association. Never has our modern society been so restrictive on American’s civil liberties. As a result, mental and emotional health suffered, the economy tanked, and some lost loved ones with whom they were never able to visit during their illness. Weddings, graduation parties, and celebration of life memorials were forbidden ...

American Voters: Don’t Look to Europe as a Model

by Daniel Lacalle The United States election campaign is focused primarily on how much the next president will spend and the measures to combat coronavirus. Both issues should point to one conclusion: unlike what candidate Biden wants to do, the next United States president should not copy the European Union. As we face a second wave of coronavirus outbreak in Europe, we know that the March measures and aggressive lockdowns were a grave mistake. The European economy is on the verge of a double-dip recession: the unemployment rate is at 8.1 percent compared to 7.8 percent in the United States but the European Union still has around 10 million furloughed jobs. Real unemployment, if we use the same calculation as in the United States, is closer to 11 percent. ...

‘Fire Fauci!’ – Trump Rally Explodes Over Coronavirus Doom And Gloomer

by Daniel McAdams As President Trump completes his whirlwind final few campaign stops, the crowds are becoming more and more vocal, responding to the president's mocking the media for its Covid obsession with a chant of "Fire Fauci!" Trump hints it's on the agenda. Also today: Fauci plays politics days before the election...and more evidence that mask mandates do nothing to prevent new "cases."
