  1. In North Carolina where President Trump is speaking right now, he has some native American Indians over to his right, who seem to be, intermittently and politely, beating on drums. The following is closed up for easier reading and I found a minor error which I fixed. Peter Fact Check: Was Hunter Biden Dishonorably Discharged From the Military For Cocaine Use? Marlena Lang 1 day ago. During the first presidential debate on September 29, President Donald Trump said former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, was dishonorably discharged from the military because of cocaine use.
  2. 12 days to the election. Daily Presidential Tracking Poll Sponsored by Liberty Nation, Conservative News Where Truth Matters Thursday, October 22, 2020. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday, sponsored by Liberty Nation, Conservative News Where Truth Matters, shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove. end quote What a jump for Trump! I am really hoping tonight’s debate is a winner for our great President. The Real Clear Politics map has the Senate at 46-46 with 8 tossups: Georg
  3. How will Trump handle the issue of Biden corruption during the debate? Any new suggestions? I definitely see another ruined, Watergate type of presidency if Biden is elected. Peter Interesting fact. From MSN. Seinfeld is best known for playing himself in the sitcom ‘Seinfeld’, which was written by Larry David and himself. He’s had an incredibly successful career as a stand-up comedian; and in 2020, Jerry Seinfeld’s net worth is estimated to be $950 million.
  4. We sampled a comet just recently (yesterday?) and the sampled material is being sent back to earth. I worry about the Andromeda Strain scenario.
  5. I just wanted to mention that we started watching Outlander again and it hasn’t been so bad. They are in France and so far they have been relatively decent shows with beautiful houses and lush, green backgrounds. I won’t give anything else away. I may have mentioned this before but on another front I wanted to congratulate Jimmy Fallon on the new Tonight Show theme. It reminds me of the theme song to the TV show, The Odd Couple.
  6. What if Biden is elected and suddenly it's deja vu all over again and people are comparing Biden and Harris to the Watergate scandel.
  7. China Death Plague. CDP? Sshh! Nobody in the campaign or family says anything, Kapeesh? Here is an interesting perspective from Breitbart: Joe Biden has not disputed those are indeed Hunter’s emails. Hunter Biden has not disputed those are his emails. The Biden campaign has not disputed those are Hunter’s emails. And those emails are beyond damning. If they are indeed Hunter’s emails (and I believe they are), they expose Biden as a traitor and something akin to a mafia godfather using his crime family to enrich himself. So, if the emails are real, Joe Biden is better off hiding than going
  8. What a scared-y cat. Planes are five times safer than homes and nursing homes because of the air circulation. Leave the vents on, Kamala! WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden's presidential campaign said Thursday that vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will suspend in-person events until Monday after two people associated with the campaign tested positive for coronavirus. The campaign said Biden had no exposure, though he and Harris spent several hours campaigning together in Arizona on Oct. 8. Harris was scheduled to travel Thursday to North Carolina for events encouraging voters to
  9. No changes to speak of, with Fox showing long lines in several locations in Florida even with rain. Rasmussen and RCP poll averages are nearly flat with no surges. “Trump predicts victory to his campaign staff.” He thinks his campaign, two weeks ago, was not in the place it should have been, but now “We are winning.” Trump’s internal voting is predicting a victory, with supporters showing up in person just before or on November 3rd. Mike Kelly R PA of the House Ways and Means Committee is saying ALL the enthusiasm is for Trump in Pennsylvania. There are Trump signs everyone, in yards and
  10. Friday, October 16, 2020. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday, shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove . . . . And today Sunday October 18, 2020, the Real Clear Politics poll for all states show Biden with a 5 percent lead over Trump, and a 1.4 percent lead in both Florida and Georgia. The RCP no toss up Senate map has Republicans with 53 seats and Democrats ending up with 47. And RCP had this headline. With Delayed Election Tally Likely, Both Sides Gird for Battle By Philip Wegman
  11. Michael cautioned us, “Now hold onto your hats because this is going to be one hell of a ride.” I hope the ride begins today or at least before the election. From Fox just now: “Outrage grows over social media suppression of Hunter Biden story.“ If Rudy gives the videos and info to Fox will they report it? They may not be as “big” as social media but even if the National Enquirer ran with the full story it would become widely known in a day. Put it on the air!
  12. TF wrote: Would they dare open the door for Kommie Harris? Stay tuned. I apologize if anyone has answered this one already. This is an often repeated thought but Biden is soon going to be 78 years old and Trump is 74 years old. What does anyone think will happen if Joe Biden or President Trump become incapacitated between now and the election or if they win the election and then become incapacitated? Will their Vice Presidential choices continue to run? Do they there after move into the Presidency? On my ballot the voter must fill in ONE oval each that clearly states Trump for
  13. I agree. It is interesting that Biden voters are more likely to vote early. My wife and I decided against voting in person and we will mail in our ballots tomorrow, October 16, 2020. I filled in the ovals completely with a Bic pen. I thought the Trump inquisitor, NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie, was very angry at the beginning of the debate . . . oops, I mean The Town Hall. Maybe she should be fired, because she did a lousy, unfair job. From Rasmussen. 65% Say They’re Likely To Vote Early If They Can Thursday, October 15, 2020. Early voting is available in most states, and voters in tho
  14. What a brilliant letter from Allan Costell, told from a proven sociologic viewpoint yet recognizing free will. So . . . in what ways is our human makeup and ways of acting determined? What things are totally within our control? Peter From: Allen R Costell To: objectivism Subject: OWL: The Influence of Culture Date: Sat, 8 Jun 2002 23:46:28 -0500 An argument has been made (by David Potts, 6/5) and seconded (by Bruce Norbeck, 6/06) that criticizing impossible ideals and immoral images is "profoundly un-objectivist". This argument has a few problems with it, yet rather than detail them
  15. 19 days to go before the election. Because of the Left Coast’s 74 and New York’s 29 electoral college votes, Biden starts out with a numerical lead. Is it too soon to predict? Maybe. I saw one of Harris’s aides and Baron Trump have tested positive for Covid-19, and the looming October surprise may have arrived. RealClearPolitics' gauge of polls in six crucial battleground states — Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and North Carolina — currently shows Biden with a 4.9-point lead over Trump. end quote That lead has shrunk in a week, from 10 to 5. Battleground st
  16. Think about this idea from Lou Dobbs Tonight. Does America have Oligarchs?
  17. Someone convinced me to stop donating to ARI a few years ago here on OL.
  18. I still do not understand the big O, little o objectivist dislike of Ronald Reagan, nor Ayn Rand's. And their hatred of Donald Trump is moronically lacking any DEEP reasoning. Look at any of Rand's political stances and from Laissez-Faire Capitalism, moving away from deep state cronyism, openness, and onwards from there, I know she would support President Trump.
  19. It is interesting that Rasmussen Polling thinks President Trump’s selection of a woman, Supreme Court nominee who may not be “pro-abortion rights” has lowered him in the polls. I mentioned before how states already have restrictions on abortions especially, late term abortions, but no one is suggesting overturning Roe v. Wade. And many hospitals and the obstetricians themselves have restrictions on abortions. So once again, I suggest that if a 5 to 4 conservative court did not hear any cases about overturning Roe v. Wade, a 6 to 3 court will not either. My own thinking on the matter is that so
  20. That is a first hand look at insanity. Under President Trump, excluding the horror of the coronavirus, we are safer, better off, and being led my a rational businessman, not a politician. Ayn Rand supported Dewey and Goldwater, so how could she not support Trump? Of course, she would have reservations and be disapproving of some of this actions but President Trump upholds the values of our Founding Fathers, as did Reagan. Biden never had a real job. Even his lifeguard stint as a young man was for the municipality of Wilmington, Delaware. Everything else he has ever done was in the politi
  21. Remember the George Steinbrenner portrayal on Seinfeld? You never see his face. I always thought it was Garry Marshal, but it was a relatively unknown actor, voiced by Larry David.
  22. I hereby withdraw my recommendation to watch “Outlander.” It was always violent but around the 13th or 14th episode the violence and long, drawn out sadism became overbearing. Realistic torture and sadism dominate and it is disgusting. I told someone who had seen all the episodes about my thinking and without giving anything away they said it doesn’t get that bad again. edit. The first critic I came to when looked on the web said he was paid to view otherwise he might not. He gives away a lot of spoilers but I will only say sadism, sadism, sadism, and rape after rape after rape occur, so
  23. Another transcript? Peter THE RAND TRANSCRIPT By Chris Matthew Sciabarra For many years, scholars have sought to understand Ayn Rand’s early education in an attempt to identify possible influences on her intellectual development. Regrettably, very little information has been available on one important phase of that education: her studies at the University of Leningrad in the years 1921-1924. Having recovered Rand’s college transcript, I am now in a position to shed greater light on this subject.1 I have investigated the nature and significance of the courses that it lists, and
  24. If no Democrats show up the remaining Republican Senators can pull off a few shenanigans to get her passed. They play dirty . . . we play dirty. If it were 50 - 50 Mike Pence can step in. If it is 50 or more to ZERO for confirmation, won't it pass? Or if there are other lame rules the majority Republicans can pass a bunch for resolutions and votes to get her into her rightful seat on the Supreme Court.
