American Airlines to begin furloughing 19,000 workers because Pelosi cannot agree to deal
Breitbart reports in a 30 September 2020 article that Pelosi’s dedication to bailing out liberal states outweighs any compassion for as many as 36,000 workers in the airline industry.
American Airlines said it will begin furloughing 19,000 workers after lawmakers and the White House can’t agree on a coronavirus relief deal.
The major airlines have held off on layoffs and mass furloughs under the terms of a $25 billion payroll support program Congress passed in March. The deal was aimed at helping the airlines cope with shutdowns, quarantines, and a crash in bookings, but at the time it was passed, lawmakers believed demand for air travel would recover in a few months.
The March legislation’s ban on cutting jobs expires October 1. Demand for air travel has recovered a bit since the depths of March and April, but passenger volume remains 70 percent below pre-pandemic levels.
Airline executives say they simply cannot avoid eliminating jobs and furloughing employees without a new round of relief from Congress.
American Airlines Chief Executive Doug Parker said in a letter to employees that he stood ready to reverse the furloughs if lawmakers reach a deal, according to Reuters.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Fox News on Thursday that talks with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had made progress, but no deal has been reached. Democrats have resisted reaching a deal with Republicans, with some Democratic politicians and strategists worried that any deal to boost the economy might help Trump’s re-election efforts. Some liberal activists oppose any deals with the Trump administration under any circumstances.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called a proposed $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package from the Democrats “outlandish.”
President Trump has told Capitol Hill Republicans that he would prefer a bill that spent more than the earlier Republican proposal that was rejected by Democrats to no deal at all.

If this were only support for the workers, maybe then it would get more support in Congress
However, seeing that anti-American companies like American Airlines, Delta Airlines, and Frontier Airlines (who are among a group of airlines who have harried air marshals over politically-correct issues) will be among the companies impinged, I worry about it. If these companies did not fly the BLM flag at their corporate headquarters while they push pc concepts, then maybe I might care.
Here’s an idea for them: since BLM has received billions in donations, maybe they can get a bailout from BLM.

Rittenhouse lawyers demand Biden retract the claim he is a “White Supremacist”
Townhall reviews the demand by Kyle Rittenhouse’s lawyers that Joe Biden retract the comment made during the debate alleging that Kyle is a “White Supremacist.”
Lawyers for Kyle Rittenhouse, one of the alleged shooters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, are demanding Joe Biden’s Democratic presidential campaign retract their claim that the 17-year-old is a white supremacist in a tweet sent on Wednesday.
The Biden campaign tweeted a video overlaid with the question from Fox News anchor Chris Wallace to President Trump to disavow white supremacists. As the video played, it included a picture of Rittenhouse.
Rittenhouse’s lawyers tweeted that the Biden campaign needs to make a public retraction:
“There is absolutely no evidence, not even a pinch, of this defamatory accusation that my client Kyle Rittenhouse is a ‘white supremacist’ — none. My client is a 17-year-old patriotic, dutiful American boy who came to ‘help people,’ that’s in his own words. These words and his Good Samaritan actions are on videos being shared all over social media from that night in Kenosha,” said Marina Medvin, who is also a senior columnist for Townhall and is one of Rittenhouse’s criminal defense lawyers.
“There is no evidence of him being a ‘white supremacist.’ This dangerous storyline was concocted by online trolls and then parroted by mindless politicians and pundits. The flagrant defamation needs to stop. They can retract and apologize, or they can deal with Lin Wood in court. It’s their choice,” she continued. “As for the criminal charges, I am not going to address the issues of self-defense before trial. What I will say is this— there are countless lies being spread about Kyle Rittenhouse— lies about him crossing state lines into Wisconsin with a rifle and lies about him coming to Kenosha to shoot people — and these are absolutely false. The lies and propaganda need to stop.”
Rittenhouse is accused of shooting three people during the height of the riots in Kenosha. Videos compiled from that night, including video taken by Townhall, shows Rittenhouse running away from Joesph Rosenbaum before being cornered in a car parking lot. An eyewitness said Rittenhouse fired after Rosenbaum lunged for his rifle.
Prior to the first shooting, Rosenbaum was seen being aggressive towards the group of armed civilians who were out protecting businesses from rioters.

Has Biden been planning this?
Maybe this has been planned from the beginning by the Biden campaign, since the Miami Herald now reports that Rittenhouse’s attorneys have set in motion a lawsuit due to Biden including the claim in an advertisement. At first, it seemed like another stupid statement by brainless Joe, but now it seems to be a campaign in itself to defame Kyle Rittenhouse.
Maybe this is being done to distract the conservatives from the fact that a socialist White supremacist (Richard Spencer) has endorsed Joe Biden.
Or maybe this is supposed to get us to overlook the fact that entering antifa.com opens up to the Biden fundraising page.

Left-wing double standard: Biden good Catholic, Barrett bad Catholic
Breitbart comments in a 30 September 2020 article on Democrat hypocrisy of supporting Biden while condemning Barrett. Think of this: Biden has been a politician who has promoted the killing of babies up to and beyond 9 months of development in the womb. Add to that the other Democrat stances that go against Christian doctrine. Despite this, the press promotes him as a “faithful Catholic” (much as they want to make us think Pelosi is the same). Now consider Amy Barrett, who lives out her faith and is the mother of seven (including 1 handicapped and 2 Haitian girls). Because of her potential decisions that might impinge on abortion, the Democrats are staging another snit-fit lie session much like the concocted Kavanaugh lies by Christine Blasey-Ford.
Democrats, the media, and leftwing activists generally faun over former Vice President Joe Biden for his Catholic faith while claiming Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholicism is a threat that must not infiltrate the institution.
This narrative continues even as people across the political spectrum have praised Barrett’s superior qualifications for joining the bench.
Tax-payer funded and anti-Trump National Public Radio (NPR) provides one example of the double standard about the right and the wrong kind of Catholic.
On September 20, NPR reported on Biden’s faith in an article titled, “How Joe Biden’s Faith Shapes His Politics”:
When Joe Biden seeks to inspire or comfort, he turns to his faith. He speeches are woven with references to God, biblical language, or the pope.
Biden, who carries a rosary in his pocket and attends Mass every Sunday, is known as a deeply devout person of faith, and his campaign sees electoral implications in that — in part because Biden has tried to frame this election as a clear moral contrast between Trump and himself.
Some Democrats would go so far as to say that Biden is running perhaps the most overtly devout Democratic presidential campaign since Jimmy Carter in 1976.
NPR did not report on the controversy Joe Biden’s pro-abortion stance has played in practicing his faith, including during the presidential primary when he was denied communion at a Catholic church in South Carolina.
Fast forward to September 29 after President Donald Trump announced Barrett as his nominee. NPR said her “Catholicism is controversial” in its report on her religious background and beliefs:
Not all Catholic justices think alike. Sonia Sotomayor and Clarence Thomas, both Catholic, are ideological opposites. A strict adherence to Catholic teaching may lead a justice in contrasting directions, from opposing abortion and same sex marriage, to advocating for immigrants and expanded health care, or to opposing the death penalty.
If Amy Coney Barrett’s religious beliefs were to be raised during her confirmation hearings, it would presumably be because her Catholic faith appears to be of unusual intensity and character.
The possible impact of Barrett’s Catholicism on her jurisprudence has continued to be a subject of speculation in part because of her reported membership in a conservative Catholic “covenant” community known as People of Praise. The organization, which also includes some non-Catholics, holds to highly traditional social views and has been subject to critical reviews in progressive circles.
After pointing out that Democrats attacked Barrett about her faith three years ago when she was up for confirmation to the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, McGurn cited the upcoming confirmation hearings:
This time the religion-based attacks have largely zeroed in on People of Praise, a charismatic Christian community to which Judge Barrett and her husband belong. Because it holds traditional views of marriage and family, the idea is that anyone who belongs, especially a woman, must be willfully backward and perhaps a little creepy. Newsweek even ran a story claiming — falsely — that People of Praise was the inspiration for Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
You might think that Judge Barrett’s extraordinary life — as a distinguished law professor, as a highly regarded appellate judge, and as a woman who will become the first Supreme Court mom with school-age children — might occasion a rethink of prejudices against religious moms with large families. Or about Jesse Barrett, the very model of a husband who supports his wife in her chosen career.
Instead, this accomplished professional is painted as a helpless female living in her own little Gilead. If the Democrats and their allies keep it up, these attacks will undo all the work Mr. Biden has undertaken to persuade the American voter his campaign is friendly to religion and committed to restoring decency to our civic life.
McGurn concluded by saying that Biden should be pressed on whether he’ll insist the same standard used to measure his religiosity should also be applied to Barrett.

As far as I am concerned, I got sick of the double standard years ago with Justice Clarence Thomas
However, I also got a refresher course during the Trump-Wallace debate (where Wallace interrupted President Trump five times more often than he interrupted Biden.
You know, maybe President Trump did interrupt. Listen to the recordings of the debate. Both Biden and Trump interrupted one another. However, there was only one who referred to the other as a “clown.”
Back during the Obama administration, a member of Congress shouted out “You lie” in response to a portion of Barack’s lying claims during that year’s State of the Union Address. In response, the Democrat press came unglued (claiming that the proclamation was nothing but disrespectful). Now, the press wants to focus on the Proud Boys, who it calls a White Supremacist group despite the many photographs of members showing Black, Hispanic, and Asian members. Why doesn’t the press focus on the former Senator and Vice President who has not shown respect for the office? Why do they want to allege a racist connection between President Trump and the Proud Boys when there is a known connection between Joe Biden and Robert Byrd and Strom Thurmond (two members of the KKK)? Why not mention the endorsement by the White Supremacist Socialist?
- Liberals do not learn from their mistakes
Liberals used the nuclear option, made an election-year Supreme Court nomination, complained when Republicans did the same, and now threaten to add states, kill the filibuster, and pack the Supreme Court if they win the Presidency and Senate
Breitbart quotes Chuck Schumer as he fantasizes over burying Republicans by adding Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico as states and packing the Supreme Court.
On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that he would “love to” make D.C. and Puerto Rico states and addressed the prospect of ending the filibuster if Democrats take the Senate by stating, “I’m not busting my chops to become majority leader to do very little or nothing. We are going to get a whole lot done. And as I’ve said, everything, everything is on the table.”
Schumer said that Senate Democrats are “using all the tactics we can” to slow down Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation.

Democrats have already been stabbed on their own knife twice. They are trying for times 3, 4, 5, and 6
After getting stabbed with their own metaphorical knife twice during a knife fight with Republicans, one would think that Democrats would stop providing the means of their own destruction. But if they bring in Puerto Rico and D.C., then Texas could break up into West Texas, South Texas, North Texas, and East Texas. With the same number of House members but four times the Senators, it could make things interesting.
As I understand it, though, D.C. cannot become a state without an amendment to the Constitution.

AP issues guidance for reporters to lie about left-wing violence
Townhall comments on the changes within the Associated Press that should stop our reading of their articles for true information.
Mobs of violent left-wing kooks have been roaming the streets of American cities for months terrorizing residents, murdering Trump supporters, beating people to a pulp, shooting police officers, and assaulting people in their vehicles. But you wouldn’t know any of this if you consumed news exclusively from the mainstream media because the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know about it.
The Associated Press (AP) issues guidelines, closely adhered to by many journalists, dictating what words are politically correct at the time and what words to avoid. The AP issued new guidance on Wednesday telling journalists to avoid using the word “riot” when covering leftwing events and refrain from reporting on property destruction because, according to the AP, such reporting has been used in the past as a way to stigmatize protests against lynching and racial injustice. To the AP, it’s not the job of journalists to report the news. It’s the job of journalists to advance a left-wing narrative.
The AP dictates that “unrest” should be used instead of the word “riot” because it’s less “emotional.” The AP then points out how great the words “protest” and “demonstration” are because both words can technically refer to violent and peaceful gatherings alike and help gloss over the violence.

We have come to expect that (since the press has reported more negatively on Trump from the beginning)
On 17 August 2020, Fox News reported that the press reported negatively on President Trump 150 times more often than they did with Biden.
Of course, this goes back as least as far as early 2017 (when Pew found Trump gathered 82% more negative coverage than other presidents).
Still, it does not make it any more acceptable to lie.

Forty Minneapolis restaurants ask mayor for help due to fear that perception of lawlessness has impacted businesses
The Daily Caller reports in a 30 September 2020 article that restaurateurs have gone to the mayor of Minneapolis due to the lawlessness of the city.
Forty Minneapolis restaurants asked Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey to prioritize public safety downtown amid concerns that crime in the city could threaten the viability of businesses, CBS Minnesota reported.
The letter urges Frey to create a plan of action to make public safety a priority in order to drive business in the area. Tanya Spaulding, who lives and works in downtown Minneapolis and is representing the restaurants in the letter, says the city is at a turning point and business owners need city leadership to focus on combating crime, according to CBS Minnesota.
“We want them to address that there is an issue in downtown that needs to be fixed now, before downtown Minneapolis goes in the wrong direction for good,” Spaulding said. “What is the plan of action? We want zero tolerance for the crime, for the harassment, for the assaults, for the theft. and we want the greater community to know it is not lawless. There is law here.”
Violence surged in Minneapolis in the weeks following the death of George Floyd.
Floyd died after a Minneapolis Police officer knelt on his neck for nearly 9 minutes May 25. The crime surge came as the Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously to dismantle the city’s police department and switch to a “community-based” public safety system.

Maybe I could remind you of who has garnered the support of police
Let me remind you of the stories from July (when the riots had only been going on for months) where Trump received endorsements from Florida, New York, and nation-wide. Conversely, police groups stood against the Biden campaign.

DNI letter proves Obama, Clinton approved Russia hoax
One America News Network reports that a DNI letter outlines how Obama was briefed on how Clinton
The Director of National Intelligence declassified documents detailing former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s alleged roles in making false ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
On Tuesday, John Ratcliffe issued a statement saying he will release handwritten notes of Obama’s meetings with then-CIA chief John Brennan back in 2016 at the request of Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
The notes allege 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Clinton approved plans for her campaign to pin the hacking of the DNC on the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Further, the document claims the FBI briefed then-President Obama shortly after Clinton’s approval of the plan.
Meanwhile, some reports are saying the declassified information is unverified Russian disinformation. However, Ratcliffe released a follow up statement responding to those claims saying the Intelligence Community has not assessed it as being false.
This all comes amid longstanding concerns the Obama-era Intelligence Community may have had a left-wing anti-Trump bias. Former FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday about operation Crossfire Hurricane.
Graham has said that hearing will focus on whether there was preferential treatment when it came to alleged corruption in the Clinton campaign compared to allegations against the Trump campaign.

Biden keeps flipping on the central issue of energy
The Daily Caller points out how Biden has flipped repeatedly on the central issue of energy.
The fact Joe Biden is trying to rebrand himself as an environmental moderate proves one thing: he really thinks we’re stupid.
During the first presidential debate, Biden told the world he suddenly doesn’t support the radical Green New Deal. However, his fake run to the center is no surprise to those who have followed his fumbling green flip-flops over the last year or even the last month.
In the very last Democratic debate, Biden quickly agreed with Bernie Sanders in saying he wants to ban all new fracking in the United States. Then, just a few short months later, Biden had to face the very energy workers who use fracking to deliver power to our country, where he flipped and said he’s now against a full fracking ban.
The message is simple: No matter if you’re an oil worker from rural America or a socialist congresswoman from New York, Joe Biden needs you to believe he agrees with you about everything.
To be fair, Joe Biden is consistent in his support for fracking under very special circumstances. First, the fracking has to take place in Ukraine. Second, the company doing the fracking has to be delivering his son a paycheck. However, if you’re an energy worker in the United States and you’re not related to Joe Biden, your job is on the chopping block.
After Tuesday’s debate it’s going to be hard for Joe Biden to explain how he is against the Green New Deal even though his running mate sponsored the bill in the Senate. Biden would have us believe he either didn’t know Senator Harris is a major supporter of extreme environmentalism, or that we’re too stupid to figure it out.
The worst part of Biden’s green shell game is what his plan would actually mean for America. On Tuesday night, Biden wanted us all to know he has a different plan than the Green New Deal, but it’s clear he didn’t expect anyone outside of a supportive Chris Wallace to read it.
Spoiler: under the Biden “please don’t call it the Green New Deal” plan, Americans will have to buy a new electric vehicle in the near future while watching their power bill skyrocket. The plan is so extreme, even Biden’s strongest supporters want no part of it.
In energy-rich New Mexico, the Democratic congresswoman who said she will vote for Biden said the plan he supports is “out of touch with the reality on the ground.” The state’s governor, who Biden appointed to lead his transition team, has floated the idea of seeking a waiver from the Biden plan if he’s elected. Keep in mind, those are Biden’s supporters.
