Dominion Warns Giuliani, White House That Defamation Litigation Is “Imminent”
I keep reading stories about Dominion or Smartmatic sending demand letters to their accusers and thinking, “This can’t possibly work.” Not because the companies haven’t been smeared but because it’s almost literally unimaginable in 2020 that a political actor would face meaningful consequences for smearing someone. This is the age of social media! We elected Trump, for God’s sake. America doesn’t “do” defamation anymore. You can tell any falsehood about a political enemy in a moment of anger and expect no consequences for yourself even if there are serious consequences for them.
We should all get out of that mindset, though. It’s pernicious, and it’s also not true. Dominion has retained a well-known defamation lawyer in Tom Clare, who won a million-dollar jury verdict

American taxpayers still reeling from coronavirus lockdowns will be shelling out billions to foreign countries if Congress passes a $2.3 trillion spending bill unveiled Monday.
The 5,593 page budget-busting bill was posted online Monday afternoon, only hours before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said a vote would be held.
For some countries, Christmas came early:
$169,739,000 to Vietnam, including $19 million to remediate dioxins (page 1476).
Unspecified funds to “continue support for not-for-profit institutions of higher education in Kabul, Afghanistan that are accessible to both women and men in a coeducational environment” (page 1477).
$198,323,000 to Bangladesh, including $23.5 million to support Burmese refugees and $23.3 million

Coverup? What do you think?
Imagine your child goes out for the night and you get a phone call that he or she is hurt and on the way to the hospital. A few days later, the child is dead. Would you want an explanation? Would you want the police to do something? Would you want the states attorney to do something? What if they failed to act because.............. the suspect was connected? How would you feel? The following was in todays paper.
Facing the possibility of coming under scrutiny by a special prosecutor, the Cook County state’s attorney’s office and the Chicago Police Department are, for the first time, offering an explanation for why, just hours into the case, detectives abruptly dropped the David Koschman investigation and didn’t pick it up again for 15 days:
The two detectives assigned to the case went on vacation.
Hours after detectives Rita O’Leary and Robert Clemens had learned that Koschman was in a coma, with a fractured skull and swollen brain, the police stopped talking with witnesses — apparently, a top police

I can't believe the dems put up a fucking nitwit corrupt sob like Biden to be their candidate. He deserves to be in jail. And for the media, they have exceeded their 1st Amendment rights and need to be curtailed.

EXPOSED: Biden’s Deep Corruption
I try to limit my analysis to markets while leaving politics out of it, but sometimes I have no choice but to focus on politics. This is one of those times.
Their potential impact on markets is simply too great to ignore.
Despite media blackouts and social media censorship, most Americans have by now heard about the Biden family scandals involving China, Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan (scandals involving other countries may pop up in the next week before the election).
The basic outline is simple. While

Nearly three years since a clout-heavy Bridgeport bank was shut down after authorities uncovered massive fraud and the bank president was found hanged in the home of a customer, the federal investigation into Washington Federal Bank for Savings has taken a new turn involving a southwest suburban video
