Trump trolls the media, again

A short-term memory problem at The NY Times?

Fox News:
An opinion piece published in The New York Times on Saturday that incorrectly asserted it has "been 36 years since a man and woman ran together [in a presidential election] on a Democratic Party ticket" was immediately panned on Twitter, prompting The Times to delete its tweet and correct the column.

The article, written by Opinion Columnist Maureen Dowd, is titled "No Wrist Corsages, Please" and asks the question, "Has America grown since 1984, or will the knives still be out for [Joe] Biden’srunning mate?" BIDEN GAFFES IGNORED BY MSNBC'S PRIMETIME SHOWS FOR 3 STRAIGHT NIGHTS "It’s hard to fathom, but it has been 36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket. To use Geraldine Ferraro’s favorite expression, 'Gimme a break!'" she wrote. The piece also was promoted on the NYT Opinion Twitter account, quoting Dowd. However, many pointed out that Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine was chosen as Hillary Cl…

Antifa mob attack police in Portland suburb destroying media myth that Feds were cause fo riots

Tyler O’Neil:

The streets of Portland again became a war zone on Friday night, as antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters with large plastic shields and body armor blocked traffic and hurled mortar fireworks, concrete, and rocks at police near the Penumbra Kelly police building in a residential neighborhood. As police broke up the riot on the 70th straight night of rioting in Portland, some antifa rioters trespassed onto a man’s property. He told them to leave in no uncertain terms.

A group of about 200 rioters gathered at Laurelhurst Park near the Kelly building between around 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The rioters began marching toward the Kelly building, with “support vehicles” escorting them and blocking “all vehiclular traffic,” Portland Police reported. Police told the rioters that if they stepped onto the building property, they would be subject to arrest.

As police arrested members of the mob, rioters threw rocks at officers and blocked all lanes of traffic. “Several people in this…

Democrats refuse deal to help those hurt by pandemic, Trump suspends Payroll tax to end of 2020

Breitbart:

President Trump said Friday he would defer the payroll tax until the end of the year, using an executive order.

The tax would continue to be deferred until the end of 2020, the president said, and would likely be retroactive from July 1.
...

The president also said he would extend unemployment benefits, defer student loan payments and interest, and extend the eviction moratorium as well as an order requiring health insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions.

If Democrats continue to hold this critical relief hostage, I will act under my authority as president to get Americans the relief they need,” he said.

The president said that the lawyers were drawing up the executive orders and that they could be signed by the end of the week.

Asked whether he was concerned about the legality of his executive order, Trump replied, “No, not at all. You always get sued, everything you do you get sued … we’ll see.”

The president also declined to specify whether or not he would e…

How the intelligence agencies lost the confidence of the President

NY Times:
Unwanted Truths: Inside Trump’s Battles With U.S. Intelligence AgenciesLast year, intelligence officials gathered to write a classified report on Russia’s interest in the 2020 election. An investigation from the magazine uncovered what happened next. These are some of the same agencies who pushed the Russian collusion hoax and likely were sources for media leaks in the coup attempt against the President.  They have given him little reason to trust them now.  The Russian collusion story was never a good faith effort.  It was always an excuse to delegitimize the 2016 election of Trump.  It was a product of the Democrats‘ and their deep state allies who did not want to accept the results of the election.

Portland rioters attack little old lady and pour white paint on her

The Lid:

Didn’t Mayor Ted Wheeler say the cause of the Portland disturbances was the federal agents trying to protect a federal courthouse? The feds left over a week ago, How come the able Portland PD hasn’t been able to quell things? Thursday was the 70th straight night of Portland violence. The Rioters — oops, I mean, “peaceful protesters” celebrated night seventy by storming into a Portland suburb once again. This time they set their sights on intimidating old ladies trying to keep them calm, by tossing paint all over them and cussed them out. i

Nothing like picking on old ladies to show their “bravery.” It us clear they are not interested in trying to win people over to their point of view. They want to force you to comply with their sick and twisted goals for this country. If you resist, you will be beaten into submission.
... The Antifa mobs think they are at war with little old ladies?  Is the white paint supposed to be symbolic of their belief that opposition to their viole…

CBS ignores its own evidence that mail-in voting is a problem

Newsbusters:
Do the journalists at CBS even watch their own reporting? On Thursday, reporter Weijia Jiang offered a fact check on Donald Trump’s concerns about mail-in voting, saying he has criticized it “without providing evidence.” But you know who did provide evidence? CBS.  On Thursday’s CBS This Morning, Jiang chided, “The ongoing pandemic is also creating uncertainty about November's election. The President continued to say that mail-in voting leads to widespread fraud without providing evidence.” The CBS graphic warned, “President Attacks Mail-In Voting: Argues Without Evidence That It Will Lead to Widespread Fraud.”  First off, a nationwide mail-in election has never happened. So citing a lack of evidence for something that hasn’t happened is a questionable objection. Secondly, whether it’s fraud or just incompetence, CBS itself has shown the problem with mail-in voting.  On July 26CBS Weekend News journalist Tony Dokoupil set up an experiment. He created a campaign “headqua…

The idiocy of abolishing the police

NY Times:
Abolish the Police? Those Who Survived the Chaos in Seattle Aren’t So SureWhat is it like when a city abandons a neighborhood and the police vanish? Business owners describe a harrowing experience of calling for help and being left all alone. The defunding of the police and the demand that they withdraw is unpopular with all ethnic groups and only a few kooks on the left support the movement.

Job recovery remains robust

Economy added 1.8M jobs in July, unemployment at 10.2% This is good news for those who have rejoined the workforce.  It is probably bad news for Democrats who would like the economy to be lockdowned until after the election.

20 percent of NY mail in ballots not counted

Epoch Times:
Approximately 20 percent of mail-in ballots sent in by voters in New York City were not counted, according to new certified election results. Some 318,995 mail-in ballots were counted in the June 23 Democratic presidential primary, the city Board of Elections said in the new certification. Approximately 414,582 voters in New York City voted by absentee ballot in the primary, Robert Brehm, the co-executive director of the state’s Board of Elections, said in court last month. That means more than one in five ballots were rejected for one reason or another. “Wow. Over 84,000 New Yorkers did not have their voices heard in the June 23rd primary—many due to no fault of their own,” Suraj Patel, a candidate for New York’s 12 Congressional District, said in a social media statement. ...
This tends to rove President Trump’s point about the problem with mass mail-in voting.

Joe Biden’s war with his Catholic faith

Steven Kruiser:
...
President Trump lambasted Biden with some fiery comments that included saying that Biden is “against God” and “against guns.” That got the Democratic lapdogs in the MSM yipping right away, especially about the God stuff. They went to work to try to portray the rabidly pro-abortion Biden as Super Catholic: Biden has spoken of his faith a number of times, crediting it with helping him through personal tragedies, such as the deaths of his wife and children, most recently his son Beau Biden. His campaign website outlines a plan for “Safeguarding America’s faith-based communities,” which includes promises to crack down on hate crimes and increase grants for religious communities. Biden’s campaign also contributed to the St. Joseph of NARAL narrative: “Joe Biden’s faith is at the core of who he is; he’s lived it with dignity his entire life, and it’s been a source of strength and comfort in times of extreme hardship,” Andrew Bates, a spokesman for the Biden campaign, said in …

Trumps suggest NRA move to Texas

Washington Examiner:

President Trump said the National Rifle Association should move to Texas after the New York attorney general announced efforts to dissolve the gun-rights group.

The state's Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat, filed a lawsuit on Thursday charging the NRA with a multitude of "fraud and abuse" violations. Among the accusations James is throwing at the group include financial misconduct, alleging the group used money for vacations, private jets, and high-priced meals.

"That’s a very terrible thing that just happened," Trump told reporters outside the White House. "I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life, and I've told them that for a long time."
... This is a great idea.  Texas is a state that respects the second amendment and is much more dynamic than New York at this point.  The NRA would be part of a growing movement of companies and organizations moving their headquarters to the sta…

Houston Methodist hospital gets quick recovery of virus using new drug

Click 2, Houston:
... Methodist was the first to report the rapid recovery of patients on ventilators and those with severe medical conditions after three days of treatment. The drug is called RLF-100 and is also known as aviptadil. It has been approved by the FDA for emergency use at multiple clinical sites in patients who are too ill to enter the FDA’s Phase 2/3 trials. According to a press release from the drug maker NeuroRX, independent researchers have reported that aviptadil blocked replication of the SARS coronavirus in human lung cells and monocytes. ... This is an important development in the treatment of the virus that looks like a real game changer.  People placed on ventilators are already in a critical stage for the disease and early on thousands died at that point in.

Weissman seeks to cover-up Muller probe

Washington Examiner:
One of former special counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors urged Justice Department officials to consider refusing to cooperate with two politically charged investigations overseen by Attorney General William Barr. Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official who was known as Mueller's "pit bull" during the Russia investigation,struck a sense of urgency in a New York Times op-ed on Wednesday, noting that there are 90 days until an election contest which will almost certainly pit President Trump against former Vice President Joe Biden. He wrote, along with former Defense Department special counsel Ryan Goodman, that U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation and U.S. Attorney John Bash's investigation into "unmasking" requests by Obama administration officials targeting Trump associates shows Barr is poised to "trample" written policy that no action be influenced in by politics…

Portland rioters attack police again

Red States:

The rioters in Portland have left the federal courthouse, but they aren’t stopping their chaos and destruction, just going back to redirecting it at the Portland Police and the people of Portland.

Sort of showing that it was never about the extra federal agents deployed there at all now, was it?

As we mentioned earlier, the rioters tried to attack the East Precinct, destroying the cameras to prevent pictures from being taken of them, then ripping off the protective barrier.
...

After barricading the doors, they tried to set the precinct on fire to burn down the cops inside.
... There is video at the link above.

The Democrats are still pushing the fiction that their militant wing is “non violent.”  They are denying reality.

Appeals court wants to know if Flynn Judge should recuse himself

Epoch Times:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has ordered former Trump adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as well as the judge presiding over his case to prepare arguments on whether the judge should recuse himself for partiality or for becoming a party to the case.

The order highlights the anomalous state of the case. Both Flynn and the prosecutors nearly three months ago agreed that the criminal “information” against him—allegedly lying to the FBI—should be dismissed. But District Judge Emmet Sullivan refuses to do so.

The appeals court’s three-judge panel ordered Sullivan to accept the case dismissal in June, but he appealed for a rehearing before the full court of 11 judges.

The appeals court vacated the three-judge order on July 30 and set a hearing for Aug. 11.

In its subsequent order on Aug. 5, the court told Flynn and Sullivan to “be prepared to address at oral argument the effect, if any, of 28 U.S.C. Sections 455(a) and 455(b)(5)(i) on” Sullivan’s p…

Police body cam video shows a difference story of what happened to George Floyd

Red States:
Full Body Cam Video from Two of the Minneapolis Police Officers Undercuts Charges Filed By Minnesota AG Keith Ellison I felt from the beginning that Ellison overcharged in this case and this video is going to make it extremely difficult for Ellison  to prevail.  It also should have been released before the emotional reaction to the cell phone video that stirred the passions of the country and the mobs.  What appears to bee clear is that Floyd was not compliant with the arresting officers.  When you tie that to his drugged condition it just does not make for a second degree murder conviction.

The left's expansive definition of who is a racist

Emily Jashinsky:
“If you voted for Donald Trump, you are a racist. You have no wiggle room,” tweeted Jemele Hill on July 19. Hill is a writer at The Atlantic and the daughter of a Trump voter. While her contention might puzzle the average American, it would raise few eyebrows on college campuses, where racism and bigotry have been defined differently for years.

Those expanded definitions, so broad they implicate almost everyone, now operate in the institutions populated by graduates of those schools. As a consequence, we are increasingly beholden to a binary system that relies on these broad definitions to categorize people either as progressives or bigots. There is, to borrow a phrase from Hill, “no wiggle room.”

This—the progressive-or-bigot binary—explains our head-spinning summer of “cultural insanity,” from the resignation of a Boeing executive over an innocuous 30-year-old op-ed to the resignation of a New York Times editor over publishing an op-ed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). I…

Woman explains why Antifa was peaceful when it entered a suburban neighborhood

Brandon Morse:
...
... Antifa attempted to make their way to the house of Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best. Instead of an unopposed walk straight to her front door, Antifa was greeted by Best’s neighbors who weren’t having it. Some of them were armed.

A recently released video shows that members of Antifa attempted to invade the quiet neighborhood and found themselves on private property. It was then that they came in contact with armed civilians who weren’t about to put up with any of Antifa’s trademark destruction and violence.

The Antifa members began doing what they always do when they’re trumped and complained that they were “peaceful” protesters who had done nothing wrong and that the civilians wielded guns in front of them for no reason.

“We’re peaceful and you pointed a gun in my face,” screamed one of the black-hooded protesters as they retreated from the oncoming gun-wielding civilians.

One of the women had a perfect, matter-of-fact response for the would-be Antifa thug.

The left's 'fact check' scam

Sharyl Attkisson:
...
That discord is likely to persist because in large part the fact-checking solution is illusory. Many such efforts fail because they amount to a circular feedback loop of verification. The fact checkers are like-minded journalists or often liberal Silicon Valley gatekeepers, who frequently rely on partisan news sources and political activists to control narratives on a wide variety of issues and controversies. This small group of players exerts an oversized influence, using fact checks to shape and censor information.

Twitter recently sparked controversy by taking the unprecedented step of adding a disapproving “fact-checking label” to some of President Trump’s tweets. The social media site publicly explained that Trump’s May 26 posts contained what its fact checkers deemed to be “potentially misleading information about voting processes.”

Trump had said widespread mail-in ballots in the 2020 election would be “substantially fraudulent.” While the definition of “sub…

Why Democrats fear a Biden debate performance

NY Post Editorial:
Get this: Democrats want to scrap this year’s presidential debates. It’s not hard to guess why.

“Whatever you do,” CNN’s Joe Lockhart, who served as President Bill Clinton’s press secretary, advised Joe Biden last week, “don’t debate” President Trump.

Dem strategist Zac Petkanas argues: “This is not a normal presidential election, and Trump is not a legitimate candidate” and so doesn’t deserve a debate. (Never mind that Trump won an overwhelming majority of electoral votes.)

At The New York Times, Elizabeth Drew says debates aren’t substantive. She discounts the “relevance” of the “carefully prepared one-liner” that sways viewers.

Just how dumb do they think Americans are? The real reasons Dems don’t want Uncle Joe in a live, unscripted square-off couldn’t be clearer: They’re absolutely terrified he’ll be a disaster.

It’s why they’re so happy he’s spending much of the campaign in his basement, rather than talking with people or appearing live on TV.

Before last month, he …

Democrats desperate attempt to push fascists slurs

Thomas Lifson:
Dems and media pushing Trump = Hitler and Mussolini as never before

There is more than a whiff of desperation in the re-emergence of the thermonuclear bomb of hysterical rhetoric, that President Trump is just like (or even worse than!) Hitler. Never mind the absence of death camps — the very fact that his enemies are free to employ the most irresponsible and vile language against him without disappearing in the dead of night refutes the charge. Yet we have taxpayer-funded PBS and NPR pushing the comparison hard ("Trump is the most dangerous figure in human history"), and, on the same weekend, the man who handed the Democrats' nomination to Biden joining the absurdist chorus as one of CNN's most prominent anchors accepts the comparison to Mussolini and even Hitler and moves along to the next topic.
... The slurs keep pouring out of the mouths of Democrats who falsely accuse the President of being a racist as well as fascists dictator.  They have lost t…

Why is DOJ defending people who illegally spied on Sharyl Attkisson?

Sharyl Attkisson:
At least once a day, I find myself taking a breath and silently marveling over the outrageous fact that the Department of Justice continues to fight my computer intrusion case in court. They are spending your tax money to protect the guilty parties rather than hold them accountable. This is the opposite of what they and our justice system are supposed to do. They have not changed their obstruction and obfuscation over the seven years spanning this fight -- no matter the facts. They don’t have to. They have the upper hand. Realistically, there’s not much of a damn thing a citizen like me can do about it. My attorneys and I have expansive, independent forensic proof of the intrusions. We have a government deposition admitting the government controlled the internet protocol (IP) addresses involved. We now even have one of the agents involved admitting what he did and naming names. But the Department of Justice has something far more crucial than evidence and facts. It has …

Israel competing with Russia to supply gas to Europe

A takedown of the liberal media who pushed the Russian collusion hoax and never corrected their stories

Media Silent As Christopher Steele ‘Hero’ ‘Spymaster’ Narrative Crumbles
With such shoddy information collection and analysis methods, there was never any reason to give credence to any of the salacious allegations in the dossier. That didn't stop corporate media.
This is a long piece that takes apart the mainstream media's false narrative while they were acting as co-conspirators with the coup plotters.  Were they really that naive about the stories they were being fed or was their Trump-hatred so strong that they did not care?

BLM founded on the 'hands up, don't shoot' lie

Red States:
...


“Won what?” Kelly opined. “A visual display that is based on misinformation re: police & the USA, past & present? Americans will figure out that BLM is an org that wants to dismantle the nuclear family, the justice system & the police syst so critical to protecting Black lives, esp women & kids.”

So many things to unpack.

Of course the display is based on misinformation about police and the USA, past and present.

But that’s part of the problem. The media never calls out the misperceptions, such as that “hands up, don’t shoot” about Michael Brown that kicked off the BLM and the Ferguson riots was a lie, it never happened and has been debunked. That Brown tried to take Officer Darren Wilson’s gun. That misperception continues to be stoked to cause division. And that’s just the start of the misinformation.

Yes, many Americans do already know what the BLM is about and they have known for years since they started. More and more have figured it out and the violenc…

A story that overlooks the wide enthusiasm gap

Washington Post:
Trump’s attacks on mail voting prompt alarm over GOP turnoutState and local Republicans across the country fear they are falling dramatically behind in a practice that is expected to be key to voter turnout this year. Trump is calling attention to the Democrats' propensity to cheat in elections and that is a strong incentive for Republicans to vote no matter what.  Polling has shown a wide enthusiasm gap favoring the President.  Most Republicans cannot wait to vote against Democrats at all levels of government after the Dems Russian collusion hoax and other unfair treatment of the President.

I notice that the WaPo gives a few op-ed opportunities to Never Trumpers who have no sway with most Republican voters.  They appear to keep writing the same crap over and over.  These people seem to have no idea how determined Republican voters are to vote against Democrats.

NATO's worst ally

NY Times:
Turkish Aggression Is NATO’s ‘Elephant in the Room’Despite being a NATO member, Turkey has bought Russian air defense. And a recent push into Libya and its energy ambitions nearly led to armed conflicts with France and Greece. Erdogan was a terrible ally in dealing with ISIS in Syria and he has been unreliable in other parts of the Middle East and North Africa.  His current Libyan episode is an outgrowth of Obama's strategic blunder in overthrowing Ghadafi without a plan for replacing him and controlling his weapons.  That wound up arming terrorists in both Africa and the Middle East.  While Erdogan bought an air defense system from Russia, he is also in conflict with Russia in Libya.  Trump has wisely avoided being a player in that conflict.

US manufacturing reaches 15 month high in July

Epoch Times:
Manufacturing in the United States, as measured by a key business activity gauge, surged to a 15-month high in July, exceeding economists’ expectations.

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) business survey, published Aug. 3, shows that its topline manufacturing activity indicator, called the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), surged to a reading of 54.2 in July.

Readings above 50 indicate expansion, while those below mean contraction.

“The PMI signaled a continued rebuilding of economic activity in July and reached its highest level of expansion since March 2019,” Timothy Fiore, chair of the ISM Manufacturing Business Survey Committee, said in a statement (pdf).

Economists polled by Reuters predicted the manufacturing index would rise to 53.6 in July, so the higher-than-expected number is encouraging, particularly in light of April’s 11-year low of 41.5.

“In July, manufacturing continued its recovery after the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic,” Fiore said.

BLM label on sports is a rating bummer

Breitbart:
As the NBA and MLB return from their coronavirus-imposed hiatus, it appears TV viewers are not interested in what the increasingly woke leagues have to offer.

With both baseball and basketball draped in all sorts of Black Lives Matter and social justice symbolism for their opening games, a substantially smaller number of fans tuned-in to the rest of the week’s games.
... Seeing players kneel to a Marxist organization that is basically a criminal support operation that does nothing to stop the murders of innocent black kids is not what people watch sports events to see.  Businesses that have pandered to this organization are basically paying not to be looted or burned out.

Hands off my pick-up truck

streiff:
Alleged Journalist Claims Pickups Were Built to “Kill and Intimidate Pedestrians” I have owned several trucks through the years and have never managed to kill anyone with them.  When I moved to the country around 20 years ago I decided it was time to get another one and bought a used Ford Ranger.  I kept that vehicle for about 10 years and it was one of the best I ever owned.  I even took it on cross country trips to deliver furniture that I made.

My current truck is a 2019 Ford F-150 which gets an amazing 23 miles to the gallon.  I recall some of my earlier trucks that could not muster nine miles to the gallon.  This one rides like a limo even on country roads.  I think trucks probably outnumber cars in this part of Texas.

Poll now shows Trump leading Biden

Breitbart:
A new poll released this weekend shows President Donald Trump, the incumbent GOP president, has taken a national and battleground states lead over his Democrat challenger presumptive nominee former Vice President Joe Biden.

The survey, from the Democracy Institute commissioned by the Sunday Express newspaper, shows Trump leading Biden 48 percent to 46 percent. What’s more, Trump has opened up a bigger lead according to this poll in the crucial battleground states, meaning the president by this pollster’s estimates currently is projected to win 309 electoral votes—more than he did in 2016.

Overall, this poll has Trump nationally at 48 percent to Biden’s 46 percent with six percent undecided. Among white voters, Trump leads 53 percent to 46 percent. Trump is surprisingly strong with black voters at 20 percent in this poll—he got about eight percent of the black vote in 2016—while this survey has Biden at 77 percent. Hispanic voters in this poll break for Biden 51 percent to 3…

The Russian collusion hoax matters

Andrea Widburg:
One of the claims Democrats love to tout about the Obama administration is that it was “scandal free.” For those who paid attention to the IRS targeting, Benghazi, Fast & Furious, and the cash smuggled to Iran, to name just a few illegal and/or immoral activities, that was always a peculiar boast. The Obama administration was up to its eyeballs in scandals. It was Obama who finally said what had really happened, which was that “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.” In other words, the issue wasn’t that the administration was scandal-free. The issue was that the media protected the administration from voters’ wrath should they learn about those scandals. The Russia Hoax has benefitted from the media’s continued unwillingness to report on Obama-era scandals. When it looked as if the Russia Hoax could achieve a coup against the Trump presidency, members of the press developed a form of Tourette syndrome that saw them obsessively mouth “Russia, Russia, Russia” al…

Democrats start to panic about Biden's cognitive implosion

Red States:
Is Joe Biden reaching the point of no return mentally? That’s the word from Dan Bongino, who shared earlier today that he’s hearing from sources close to the situation that Joe Biden is worsening and that Democrats will have a decision to make soon.

For context see Joe Biden’s Brain Crashes So Thoroughly That It Spawns a New Meme and Joe Biden Blanks Out and Then Insults Martin Luther King In Disaster Public Comments for some examples of his latest mind melting moments.

Here’s Bongino’s post.

We’ve all seen how hard Biden’s campaign is working to hide his mental degradation. This is a guy who can’t give a short press conference without a list of hand chosen reporters to call on and detailed notes on how to answer basic questions. Absolutely nothing he does anymore is off the cuff, which is why said press conferences only happen ever three to four months. His speeches are short and even his most scripted moments are painful to watch. He’s been doing live streams from his ba…

Trump sees vulnerability in Biden's scheme to do away with single family homes in the suburbs

Washington Post:
All the president’s ‘Suburban Housewives’Donald Trump’s retrograde appeals to suburban women reveal who he thinks is entitled to the American Dream. Biden's scheme to replace suburban single-family homes with high-density urban communities that depend on mass transit should be a real vulnerability in the coming election. It appears to be part of a plan to push green new deal and force people out of their homes and cars.  I think Trump believes that everyone is entitled to the American Dream.  The Biden scheme would kill it and push people into a Soviet-style mass housing complex.

BTW, this is not about race, although it is typical of Democrats to pretend that it is.  The suburbs of the US are integrated and it is not legal to deny sales to people because of race.  Blacks and Hispanics are pursuing the same American dream and have been for decades.

Why is the FBI focused on QAnon when the violent threats are from Antifa and BLM?

Washington Post:
How the Trump campaign came to court QAnon, the conspiracy movement the FBI sees as a violent threat I am not aware of QAnon doing any of the violent acts of Antifa or BLM.  It has not engaged in arson, looting, or attacks on law enforcement to my knowledge.  I have never had much interest in the group, but it appears to be made up of people who exhibit some paranoia about those they see as a threat.  The interest of the Trump campaign is likely the result of the group's antipathy toward the evils of liberalism.
