HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s campaign has grown increasingly focused on making inroads in Pennsylvania to offset potential vulnerabilities in other battlegrounds.

Amy Coney Barrett: A Proven Pro-Second Amendment Jurist

Judge Amy Coney Barrett, IMG Rachel Malehorn / CC BY (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The seditious Press has devoted substantial time analyzing and ruminating on Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court list of potential candidates and will continue to do so up to the point of his selecting someone. Almost certainly, Trump will nominate a woman to replace the late vexatious liberal-wing Associate Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And, that nomination is imminent. The curr...

"Josh Mendelsohn, CEO of the Democratic data firm Hawkfish, has warned of an election-day 'red mirage' of victory for Mr. Trump, which will be replaced in short order by a 'blue shift'..."

"...as the outstanding, heavily Democratic mail ballots are counted. Such a dramatic change from the election-night result could lead to baseless Republican charges of fraud and cries that the election was rigged, which could spark dangerous political unrest. These nightmare scenarios ignore several key facts, however. Most states begin processing their ballots before election day, and almost all begin putting them through scanners before the polls close. Many states intermingle sent-by-mail and...

By Ann Levin An elegy is a mournful poem expressing regret for something lost. Ayad Akhtar’s brilliant new novel, “Homeland Elegies,” mourns an America that has lost its way in the half-century since it welcomed his parents’ generation of Muslim immigrants from Pakistan. It’s a work of autofiction narrated by a man named Ayad Akhtar who is best known, like the real Akhtar, for writing a hit Broadway play in which the lead character, a Pakistani American lawyer, expresses some sympathy for the te...

Ukraine Was A Dud. Now The GOP Signals China May Be Next Big Anti-Biden Play

Fears that President Trump may use misleading allegations about China as a bludgeon against Joe Biden are coming to a head. For much of 2020, the President and his allies have pushed disinformation around the former vice president focused on Ukraine, in part because of the country’s role in President Trump’s impeachment and in part because of its byzantine relation to Russia’s  2016 election interference. But there have long been signs that Trumpworld would also seek to peddle misleading atta...
