Would you give up your fans and livelihood on principle? Joe Walsh, former “Tea Party” Congressman from Illinois and nationally syndicated radio host joins Carol Roth to talk about why he gave up everything to primary Trump, even when he knew he would lose. Joe and Carol discuss the future of the country under Biden and the potential to kill the two party duopoly.

You can connect with Joe on Twitter @WalshFreedom. You can also check out his book, F*ck Silence, every and his podcast of the same name here.

Karol Markowicz, columnist for the New York Post, joins Carol Roth to talk about why politics and incompetence instead of science have led COVID decision making down the wrong path. Karol and Carol talk about the “pajama class”, why the lockdowns have destroyed communities and how children are suffering. And they discuss where we go from here.

‘Caddyshack’ Nation: America is Bushwood Country Club

 

After Trump’s 2016 victory, I considered forming a new political action group called the Al Czervik Republicans. It would be based on Rodney Dangerfield’s classic character in the 1980 comedy film Caddyshack and serve as a tribute to those considered the “wrong kind” of people by the establishment in Washington DC.

If you’ve never watched Caddyshack before, you might want to do so before reading the rest of this. Spoilers will follow.

In many ways, Trump is a perfect metaphor for Dangerfield’s Al Czervik. They’re both self-made businessmen and builders. They’re sometimes crass, often hilarious, and completely despised by the “right kind” of people. They both delight in pointing out the hypocrisy of the privileged class and are targeted for retribution as a result.

As states begin to certify the 2020 election results, and the court litigation disputing the election outcome slowly ends, Americans ought to focus their attention on the two U.S. Senate races down in Georgia. Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are running close races against their Democratic opponents—and the results of these elections will […]

Most of us remember just 4 short years ago. Much of America, from pollsters and especially to the pundit class and Washington insiders, confidently predicted a win by Hillary Clinton. It was heresy, even mock-worthy, to suggest otherwise.But “otherwise” happened. Much of the left never accepted the results, and the Obama-Biden Administration sicced federal law […]

From American Thinker, https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/11/new_election_math_its_not_270_its_2624.html: It is the NEW 2021 Congress which would vote, and due to R house pickups Nov 3, the Democrats have just lost three delegations, and are on the verge of losing a fourth.

People don’t like politics. They like when politicians do things for them but hate knowing how it was done. We all know the sausage metaphor.  If we were able to make Trump simply an orange yet silent silhouette would he have been easily reelected based off a growing economy, a successful foreign policy shift and […]

OK, this is where I am at this moment with the Nov. 3rd election. Yes, very close, and here are 10 observations and explanations. In summary, Trump should win with a 275 vote Electoral College win despite losing, again, the national popular vote. But watch North Carolina, Michigan, and Arizona. 1) If it’s not close, […]

New Website Doxxes Trump Campaign Contributors

 

Allow me to introduce you to a cute little website: Donald Trump Watch.

It’s a website designed to name, shame, intimidate, and target those who have made reportable contributions to the official Trump-Pence campaign account.
I’m on that website.
As a federal campaign election veteran, I knew full well when I made my two contributions that they would be publicly disclosed. I knew the risk that I was taking in doing so. I was also smart enough to list a Post Office Box as my address.
There are no known such sites designed to name, shame, and target Biden supporters, nor should there be. But please disclose it to me if you find one. I am not interested in targeting Biden supporters. This is a free country (for now, at least), and the Supreme Court has long determined that political contributions are speech protected by the First Amendment.

It doesn’t take a Ph.D. to realize the intent. We have seen reports from Kansas City and New Hampshire of warning letters being left on homes of people who have been identified as Trump supporters and warned to make sure their home insurance policies protect them against fire damage.

Trump Supporters Face Threats and Vandalism

 

A Trump yard sign in New Hampshire

The UNH Survey Center’s most recent Granite State Poll reports that 60% of Trump supporters in New Hampshire do not want to put a bumper sticker on their car or a sign in their front yard because they’re afraid of vandalism. I wish I’d seen this stat a couple of days ago when I was writing this piece for National Review:

Former Reagan Speechwriter, and Ricochet Co-Founder, Peter Robinson sits down with Dave Carter to discuss everything related to the 2020 Presidential Election. From the state of the voting public to journalistic subterfuge, from the strengths and weakness of both candidates to the reliability of various polls and polling methods, Peter and Dave take on practically every aspect of Campaign 2020. The dynamics of this engaging and enjoyable conversation travel from serious political analysis, to two guys sitting on the front porch, wondering why more people don’t understand history, and beseeching the kids to get off the lawn. Along the way, Peter offers a compelling list of what could happen in the event of a Biden victory (it’s safe to say that you need to hear this).

Then Dave welcomes Ricochet Member Brady Kiel (Herrforce1) to the program.  Brady, an Air Force Reservist, spent some time in Dave’s old line of work as an active duty military historian.  As you might imagine, the guys have a great time comparing notes and trading stories, experiences and reflecting on their military service.  From start to finish, this episode is loaded with compelling conversation and even a few laughs.  We’re sure you’ll enjoy your time with Dave and his guests.

James Rickards, Editor of Strategic Intelligence, a financial newsletter and New York Times bestselling author joins Carol Roth to discuss the various reasons why different companies pay no federal income taxes, what the New York Times got wrong with the “exposé” on President Trump’s taxes and how you can reduce your own tax burden. Plus, a discussion on the Fed, the money supply and inflation. 

Plus, a “Now You Know” segment on gold. 

This week on the UK’s Fastest Growing Podcast® James and Toby ruminate about the relationship between the English and the Scots and lament what the SNP has done to it – and that’s just the beginning of a very full show.

President Trump and former Vice-President Biden held their first of three debates in Cleveland with Fox News’ Chris Wallace playing the role of moderator. It was a mess to be sure. How bad was it and what’s the state of the debates after, especially when so many Biden supporters are telling him not to bother with anymore? Seth, Park, Jay, and Grant discuss.

Also, they briefly discuss the sports playoff scene as LeBron James goes for an NBA title with his third team and the Yankees beat up on Indians making it a tough night for Cleveland all around.

Trump-Biden Debate Wrap-Up

 

President Donald Trump faced former Vice President Joe Biden for the first presidential debate Tuesday night in Cleveland. It was a televised headache.

In theory, Chris Wallace was the moderator but immediately proved ineffective at controlling the two septuagenarians bickering for the next 96 minutes. By the end, it felt like the debate was between Trump and a Wallace/Biden tag team.

Trump came out swinging, peppering Biden with interruptions and real-time fact checks. He criticized the Democrat’s 47 years in Washington and pointed out how little he accomplished during that half century.

Donald Trump Defeats Chris Wallace in First Presidential Debate

 

That was one of the most awesome debates of all time, with President Donald Trump totally dominating his opponent, Chris Wallace.

Wallace tried his best to hurt Trump and help Joe Biden, who was standing in the stage for some reason, but failed utterly and succeeded only in demonstrating that he is a complete jackass.

President Trump in sprint mode is not much different than normal mode. He held another daily press briefing this Sunday, taking 37 minutes, as I clock it. It looks like he took questions from about 7 reporters, mostly hostile, as usual. Contrast this with Senator Biden’s scripted appearances, always assisted by the media wing of […]

Why Trump Should Rescue Biden

 

There is a moment in this campaign season I have been waiting to see for months now. I don’t think the President will give it to us, and for the Bidens’ sakes I probably shouldn’t hope it will happen.

I think we all expect there may come a time in the debates when Joe Biden is talking, and gets a little lost. Maybe a lot lost. One of those times when he just can’t find that word he really needs, or can’t recall what he was talking about. I won’t wish it on him, but it’s no secret he’s prone to such things. If that thing happens, President Trump can score a major victory by leaning in, and suggesting the needed word. Or by somehow helping him get back on track.
