The coming October surprise

There have been a lot of articles in the MSM recently worrying about Trump coming up with some October surprise. They’re especially worried about the announcement of a vaccine, which they think would allow Trump to say that he beat the pandemic and he’s a hero.

Unfortunately for Trump supporters, that particular October surprise is unlikely to happen, because all of the big vaccine makers have gotten together and agreed that they aren’t going to apply for approval with the FDA until November 4th at the earliest. Of course, that’s not exactly what they said for public consumption, but CEOs of big corporations don’t want Trump to win the election and they have now joined the anti-Trump team. They don’t care that Trump massively cut their taxes, Trump’s prole-stink is too strong for them to hold their noses and do something that would help him win.

Going back to the topic of the MSM worrying about an October surprise from Trump, we have seen over and over again that liberals tend to publicly fret over Trump doing something that the liberals know their side is doing. So if there’s going to be a big October surprise, you can be sure it’s going to come from the liberal MSM and not the Trump side.

The only hope for Trump supporters is that the MSM is too stupid to understand the difference between a good October surprise and a bad one. Liberals continue to be fixated on racism, sexism, homophobia, and think the biggest possible killing blow would come from something having to do with Trump saying things along those lines. Liberals thought they beat Trump with that stuff four years ago, but it turned out the proles don’t give a crap that Trump said some locker-room talk in private. Why would they vote against Trump for saying the same kind of stuff that they’ve said themselves in private? The prole whites are sick and tired of political correctness.

The recent revelation that Trump called soldiers “suckers” is an example of an effective type of story. The prole whites love the military (because they really are suckers just as Trump said, but they don’t want to hear it), so it’s certainly going to hurt Trump with his base.

So far, the retired General Kelly, Trump’s former Chief of Staff, has remained silent about confirming or denying the story, but that’s an example of how Trump has set himself up to fail. There are so many people that used to work for Trump who now hate him. I’d say there’s a pretty good chance that Kelly or someone else close to his stature is going to come out with some pretty salacious info in October.

  1. I’ve been wondering about the upcoming October surprise on Trump, as to what do the MSM/DNC think would really work this time around. Remember they thought the Hollywood Access tape would sink Trump for sure, and really had a hard time accepting that it didn’t.

    Which makes me think that this week’s “military are losers” bit was a test run on what they think might be effective on depressing the turnout of Trump’s base. Of course the problem with this is that it was ridiculous, even after all of the serious “news” coverage it got. However something like this dropping every single day in the week before the election might have some effect. It would put Trump on the defensive at a critical time, and after the election, who cares if all the stories are fake? Oops.

  2. So what if Trump called some random people “losers” or “suckers”. It will not away my opinion of him and I didn’t even vote for Donnie boy in 2016. This too shall pass. Some days I hope Trump is going to pull some rabbit out of a hat and pull all the experts wrong.
    Media really is all-in trying to collude against Trump.

    • Trump was talking about WW1 soldiers. Trump himself is descended from Germans on his father’s side, so would it not be understandable (and I accept this is very hypothetical) for him to have some ambivalance about that war?

      You can make the argument that when people emigrate they are obliged to take on the history and allegiances of their adopted country, so the Trumps should view WW1 through a pro-American lens. But is this kind of demand made of non-white immigrants to America? Would the American media care or object if Ilhan Omar made it clear that her sympathies were with the Somalis rather than the Americans in ‘Black Hawk Down’?

      By criticising Trump for his comments the media seem to be making an assumption that white immigrants must integrate into America, whereas non-whites don’t. Which would be fair enough, except that they are usually the ones complaining that white Americans are seen as ‘core Americans’ and others are reduced to a more marginal status. But subconsciously, even the American media uphold that standard. In fact, they need them to uphold that standard. White Americans are in a ‘damned if they do and damned if they don’t’ situation with regards to embodying what it means to be American.

  3. A president has a lot of carrots and sticks at his disposal to incentivize drug companies to release as early as possible, ** Not sure Trump knows how to use them, but it would be a pretty big risk for a drug company to piss off a prez with such shenanigans.

    ** I would guess much more than with tech companies which Trump has notoriously been unable to bend to his will very much

    • Reasonable timeline of a vaccine is 5 years. With huge urgency I can understand it a couple of years. Without political agendas, will anyone trust the vaccine if its rushed without full phase 3 results which Nov1 timeline involves.

      I am desperate to get vaccine very quickly so I can travel soon. I already cancelled 1 vacation in April and postponed 1 in September to next year (both were forced circumstances because Americans not allowed in either of the countries yet). Even with such desperation, I will not go rushing to get the vaccine if its released in Nov 1. What do you think average Joe is going to do with such timeline.


      September 5, 2020 at 4:02 PM

      • I am completely convinced that the world will return to normalcy long before the vaccine is delivered. Most global pandemics reach herd immunity after 1 year, a bit more, a bit less. Just look at the history of all flu pandemics in the 20th century. Even in NJ are reopening gyms.

        If you are not living in NY, NJ, CA, OR or WA, where they keep lockdowns just out of spite for Trump, life is 90% normal at this point.

      • If you live in a town called Neptune City that’s the New Joisey Shore for ya. It’s kitsch, low status, prole…etc. NJ will always play 2nd fiddle to NY. The only good thing about NJ is probably Princeton University.

        NJ is also a state with prevalent guido racism of non-whites. Damn, it’s always those Italians who go meatballs (bananas) on 7-11 Indians, ghetto blacks, fortune cookie Chinese and Hispanics.

      • David Chase, the creator of the Sopranos, was really born as David DeCesare, whose dad operated a hardware store in the Hudson Valley. He grew up as a prole like many of us, but managed to associate himself with prestigious institutions like NYU and Stanford University.

        If there is any reason why Columbia University is associated with the Sopranos, look no further to an Italian American whose family Anglicized their surname and an individual who struggled with his identity growing up as an Italian prole, where his parents berated him for going into film studies. You would expect his dad to support his endeavors in film studies, given that it was him who adopted an Anglo surname.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

        September 10, 2020 at 9:24 AM

      • Sopranos is a comedy with Mafioso themes, and here’s a segment about Chinese takeout food:

        Here is a Seinfeld scene at the Chinese restaurant, where eating out frequently, being seen at a restaurant in Manhattan is generally afforded to those with means, where dining in making their one’s food is prolish, pre-pandemic times.

        Now contrast the Sopranos and Everybody Loves Raymond (both shows that take place in the suburbs for the lower classes, meaning that these people live in the boring, provincial suburbs year round) with Seinfeld (Jewish proles who live in the concrete jungle of Manhattan with all kinds of benefits by living in proximity to the WASP establishment that indulge in “cosmpolitanism” and “culture”). The Northeast Italian Americans (and their Catholic Irish counterparts) just aren’t much of an urban people like their Jewish neighbors, hence a lower success rate in occupation niches that only require brain power, but a sense of “open mindedness”. There’s a reason why Manhattan was always for the elites with their 2nd homes in the suburbs as merely a vacation home. It is generally regarded that wealthy Jews live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan as the new wealth where wealthy White gentiles live on the Upper East Side of Manhattan as old money, but there are now as many Jews residing on the Upper East Side as there are on the Upper West Side.

  5. My advice to the Trump campaign:

    Show the world how liberals/left/progressives run the show: Dumpster fires, unchecked looting and riots in blue cities near you, and insurance companies not paying out after devastating riots… All while pc liberals are sitting at cafes posting on social media cheering all this on while lying that reopening schools is a dangerous public health hazard (as opposed to walking on smashed glass and getting attacked at a riot) so they’re with the teacher’s union to keep schools closed indefinitely.

  7. The military and law enforcement/mercenary apparatus provide an impetus for proles with a sadistic bent, who otherwise can’t find another outlet to express their power over others. Furthermore and more importantly, without a sadistic and ruthless military, American elites could never enjoy their status they so cherish today.

    Without proles, SWPLs/ White Elites could never enjoy the fruits of their labor, which they themselves could never achieve.

  8. The revelation that Trump has done nothing to retaliate against Russia for offering bounties for American scalps in Afghanistan should have been a far bigger story than Trump being an asshole (plus the collusion documented in the Senate report, plus the odd unwillingness of Trump to ever blame Putin for anything) But now we have right wing Americans convinced that Putin is our buddy and a left wing who can’t make a credible stand on national security because they are worried about race and trans issues. So we’re fucked basically.

    • I wish that Russia would have won in Afghanistan in the first place in 1980. They would be a lot more secular. I cheer for the Russian sphere of influence in the Middle East because I highly value secularism. The U.S unfortunately sides with the fundamentalist Islamic crazies.

        Don’t be so sure. Iran was fairly secular before the Soviets helped Islamists overthrow the Shah.


        September 7, 2020 at 6:25 AM

      • Russia is no longer secular and Russia has the largest Islamic population in Europe. The Russian government has no strong feelings on secularism or Islamic nationalism in the Middle East as long as the Muslim extremists stay out of Russia. Russia is quite happy to work with the Iranians, for example, because Shiites are a tiny minority in Russia. Russian intelligence has also infiltrated most of the main Islamic terrorist groups in Europe thanks to the Chechen and Central Asian connections.

        Remember Trump is the one who has decided Saudi Arabia is our great partner.

      • Russia provides major political, economic, diplomatic, intelligence, and military support to secular Arab governments like Egypt, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates. The UAE is by far the most diversified economy in the Gulf and the one with the best long term prospects. Russia is at present aiding the remnants of Gaddafi’s Libya as well. Until Turkey deciares a caliphate it remains a secular country as well and is a Russian frenemy. Russia being a dominant power in the middle east again is a very positive development.

People like Navalny are useful idiots who have outlived their usefulness and are worth more dead than alive.

  9. Big deal. The drug companies are angry because Trump is allowing drugs to be re-imported from other countries, thus undercutting the multi-tier pricing scheme they have going on. Hell, even the US Chamber of Commerce is backing Biden. So what?

    As for Generals, you haven’t kept track of how Trump voters actually view the military. They know America has not fought a near-peer enemy since 1945. They know that the officer corp of today’s military above colonel isn’t warfighters, but politicians and bureaucrats. If your military career is leading men into battle against goat-herders and peasants…and losing…well, you aren’t getting any kudos for that.

    No one is going to care what “Unmarried Mattis” or “DHS Boyfriend” Kelly has to say about Trump or anyone else. Loving the military is not the same as caring about some retired goon.

    What Trump has done was completely re-vamp the VA service to provide better treatment for veterans and he kept us out of additional pointless wars that kill and maim prole children.

    • The intelligence services were whining that Trump was harming their credibility. No. They did that all by themselves. And so has the Pentagon.

      I think Trump is right that the generals don’t like him because he wants to stop their stupid wars. The last 20 years were the most useless wars we’ve ever had. They cost trillions of dollars and millions of lives and made the US hated around the world.

      Half of America’s wars were not only unnecessary but against our interests. There was one war, however, that we didn’t fight but should have. We should have backed India in the Sino-Indian war. We still haven’t seen all of the fall out from Kennedy’s lapse of judgement on that one. And Nixon made it worse by rewarding China’s belligerence. Truman should have listened to MacArthur.

      • The surprise is that Trump still has a chance to pull off the upset. Look, since the start of the year there has been at least a loosely coordinated if not completely orchestrated campaign against Trump involving every major media outlet with the possible exception of Fox News (who is not 100% in the bag for Trump, BTW), Corona virus goalposts that are constantly being moved, i.e. stay closed until the “curve is flattened” became “lock down until there is a vaccine,” stories like the one about WW I where no one speaks for attribution, but “everyone knows” Trump said whatever it was that that he was supposed to have said, tell-all books coming out 60 to 90 days before the election etc, etc,

        I don’t like Trump, I think he has been pretty ineffective (the shrieking from the left about his being a fascist and a dictator notwithstanding), he listens to the wrong people, and his braggadocio is really off-putting. But a lot of people think that the alternative, is dangerous. The left has already all but said that any outcome short of a Biden landslide is unacceptable and will lead to large scale unrest. The Transition Integrity Project has said so, only they’re blaming whatever violence there may be on disgruntled Trump voters in advance. All the violence I’ve seen this summer is coming almost exclusively from Antifa, BLM, and their supporters so the safe way to bet is that if there is violence this fall it will be coming from the same quarter.

        Right now it’s still possible Trump comes back enough that he can take it. In 2016 he was down what, 5% in the average poll, just days before the election?

        The demographics are not in his favor certainly, but you can’t just rule him out. You should put an actual number on his chances. 2/10, 1/10, whatever.

      • Polls.

        The primary polling companies have as their clients, media outlets that are all basically Joe Biden newsletters. What do you think they are going to provide to their customers, especially public-facing polls designed to influence opinion? Lefty polls about how waaayyyyy ahead Joe Biden is. They sample 50 Democrats, 35 Republicans and 15 independents and…voila…the Democrat always has the built-in lead.

        If Joe Biden really was that far ahead, then Antifa/BLM would not be necessary. Nursing home COVID deaths would not be necessary. Hydroxychloroquine suppression would not be necessary. Mass shutdowns would not be necessary. Why is all of this being rolled out against a President who supposedly did nothing except Republican tax cuts and mean tweets?

      • Clinton won the popular vote due to massive Democrat voter fraud. These people can’t even maintain basic law and order in their cities. The idea of election integrity then and now is a joke. The Republicans were trying to cheat Trump early in the primaries as well as a way to destroy his momentum. I’ve been calling for a national voter ID for years and it’s needed now more than ever. These so called polls are rigged but even in the fake news polls Trump is tied in key swing states which in reality means he’s ahead likely by a lot.

        You anti-Trump people including the so called “conservatives” are mostly out of touch Boomer and Gen X types living comfortably. Trump has only been ineffective in foreign policy where he’s been sabotaged the most but on the domestic policy side he’s done well. I’m just happy we’re no longer moving in the wrong direction under Trump while others usually very disingenuous people are whining that we’re not moving fast enough in the right direction. Even on that point a second Trump term is likely to deliver much more now.

  12. The best lies require a little bit of truth. Trump’s enemies are good at using the truth to tell lies. Trump calls out losers like McCain who coasted all his life on his father’s connections despite crashing multiple fighter jets then getting shot down over Vietnam squealing like pig to avoid torture but it gets spun as Trump deriding all servicemen.

    At this point everyone is aware of the deep state, democratic party, mainstream media, tech company nexus. They constantly engage in propaganda creation, fake news, planted stories, and “anonymous sources”. The purpose of which is to keep their base in a constant state of excitement and agitation while putting their enemies on the defensive. This story conveniently keeps the nigger riots, murder of Trump supporters, BLM propaganda, and Nancy Pelosi hypocrisy out of the limelight. However Trump has pushed back forcefully on the story as have his cabinet members. The Trump presidency today is in much more control over the levers of power and government institutions than four years ago.

    • Although the Lion of three years ago would probably be more skeptical of ridiculous unsourced anti Trump claims in the media, this one, about calling fallen soldiers “losers” would still sound believable to him since he feels the same way and has expressed as much on his blog. It makes me curious as to how much of the country feels this way. Unfortunately it’s probably unpollable since I doubt most people who feel that way would answer honestly. I am curious as to what the breakdown would be between urban/suburban/rural split.

        Trump is certainly dumb enough to say what he really thinks about soldiers.

        Trump dodged the draft, so obviously he thinks that people who didn’t dodge the draft, or volunteered to serve, are suckers.

        A lot of Vietnam vets share that view; it’s not as derogatory as Trump’s critics think. Context matters.


        September 9, 2020 at 6:56 PM

    • Right. The whole story is absurd and not remotely believable. Trump has a hard-on for anyone in uniform and and if they if someone is missing a limb or is otherwise wounded then Trump has a schoolgirl crush and is smitten. If the rumor was that he groped an amputee’s stump that would be more believable, knowing Trump.

      The media lies are offensive for being so ridiculous. They think we are idiots. The Russia nonsense, that Russia controlled Trump and installed him as their man was so retarded that it was offensive to me. Trump isn’t managed by his own handlers and staff, and somehow he is supposed to be a puppet of Russia?

      The propaganda in clown world isn’t even good. And the candidates that they put forth, Hillary and now Biden, are mindless fools just spouting this extremely dumb propaganda. Hillary still can’t stop about Russia. With Biden it is disappointing because he used to be smart and sharp. Watch his very high-speed, extremely sharp speaking from the 1990s and it is clear that he has lost most of his mental capability. Now he just slurs the dumb narrative slowly off his teleprompter.

  15. Osama bin Laden’s niece endorses Trump, says he must be re-elected to SAVE the Western world.

    Born in and residing in Switzerland, Noor bin Ladin is an occasional visitor to the US and is a massive fan of American conservative politics. She’s regularly seen in a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, and names Fox News’ Tucker Carlson as her favorite cable news host.

    “I have been a supporter of President Trump since he announced he was running in the early days in 2015. I have watched from afar and I admire this man’s resolve,” she said. “He must be reelected … It’s vital for the future of not only America, but western civilization as a whole.”

There isn’t anything conservative or liberal when a man wants to attain status in a status oriented society such as America.

Philanthropy is only afforded to the most successful.

      think about most favored nation drug pricing. why is this not issue #1 for democratic party? because every politician of consequence is bought off. trump addresses through executive order, because congress won’t do it.

      lion – you never addressed why epstein was able to be arrested on trump’s watch. bush, Clinton, Obama – any of them could have shut this down properly, none did. if you can ever wrap your head around epstein you might figure out what is going on in the world today.

      • The completely unhinged behavior of the Democrats, NeverTrump Republicans, and various corporate actors is because Trump is making their lives far, far harder than they’ve anticipated.

        Look at what is happening with medicine. Under the “capitalist” medical system, I was told that we have wonderful equipment and services because America is the only place where medicine can actually make money. That created the impression that much of our medicine, medical equipment, and devices are made here. We should have a robust medical manufacturing industry.

        Then COVID hit.

        Suddenly, we can’t find PPE, ventilators, or enough hospital beds, to handle anything. It turns out, most of this crap is made in China, including generic drugs and precursors. This is why Gilead can charge one price for drugs to Canada and another to the United States: it all comes out of the same Chinese factory.

      • Trump is a top one percenter and was educated at an ivy league school. He is very much part of the eastern establishment in America a minor part sure but part of it nonetheless. Did you see his warm reception in Switzerland during the Davos World Economic Forum? Trump is beloved by actual rich people with real wealth and power not just wannabes who might have a couple million in assets.


        September 7, 2020 at 8:22 AM

      • “trump addresses through executive order”

        If the 2016 election was a referendum on whether America’s immigration laws should be enforced, 2020 is a referendum on whether there is a difference between talk and action. His executive order said he was to prepare another executive order which would actually do something within 30 days. It’s been 30 days and we still haven’t seen it.

        “lion – you never addressed why epstein was able to be arrested on trump’s watch.”

        Because the deep state and the media wanted to remove Alexander Acosta, and they succeeded and managed to convince a bunch of dumb rubes to cheer as they did it. That’s what they got out of it, a real dragon they actually got to slay. In contrast, it’s now been over a year since Epstein’s arrest and we still haven’t seen the bombshell evidence of all the elites engaging in pedophilia – because it doesn’t f***ing exist.

        I remember Trump’s candidacy in 2016, and I don’t remember “go after billionaires diddling underage prostitutes” as being the heart of the platform. But tell me again:

        Talk is Action!
        Tweets are Laws!
        Stupidity is Intelligence!
        Oceania was always at war with East Asia!

        But NYS is the best state on the eastern seaboard, and it’s probably the best state in the entire country only to have South of Los Angeles, California beat it when it comes to both weather and women.

        We also have Scarsdale, the wealthiest town on the East Coast and 2nd wealthiest town in the nation.

        Still, it”s sorely lacking of culture and sophistication in the likes of Montréal and parts of Europe.

      • @ Alexander Turok

        I can tell you just started following politics seriously like four years ago because you have ZERO real world knowledge. Learn what legal precedent means because it matters a lot. On that front I’ll help you out read my entire post on the history of Marxism. Russian history and capitalist history (including US history) ebbs and flows into each other. That type of law is called common law which is separate from statutory law the latter being passed by a legislature. There is a reason why lawyers and other professionally educated people are in charge of everything of importance in America.

        Trump is a member of the ruling class not the deep state although he socialized in those circles for decades. He’s very much like Vladimir Lenin a type of minor noble out to change the country. Alexander Acosta never should have been permitted in the Trump administration. He’s a lackey and yes man who does what he’s told including going soft on Epstein. As for Epstein Trump was speaking out against him since before 2015/2016 and his presidency is the only one to actually deliver justice on such an important issue like it or not but that counts for a lot.

If you look at democrat proposals, they are far more attractive to the average american. Republicans only exist because big corps get more benefit and pay the campaigns. What is attractive in republican proposals to the average voter? Just the rejection of abortion? So, big business will be so prole stink to reject who subsidizes them?

  17. An october surpirse is anachronistic. Most of the mail order voting will have occured well before Election Day. In addition, many states have early voting and will started well before mid October. In addition, in the great separation of liberal and conservatives across every aspect of the lives, how will an October Surprise get enough people to vote. At best an October surprise will be more about depressing turnout for the opponents voters.


    September 6, 2020 at 1:04 PM

    • You misused ‘anachronistic’. Should have just said October Surprises are old hat.

      I just went a complete month without seeing a single BM/WF couple.


      September 6, 2020 at 6:04 PM

      • An October surprise meant something when 90% of Americans voted on election day, there was three networks, and the middle class read newspapers. In 2020, around 40% of voters will vote well before election day, no one reads a local newspaper, and everyone is in their own information silo.

        An October surprise also assume persuadable voters whereas in 2020 there are few persuadable voters. Elections are build on turnout, not persuasion. What kind of October Surprise could the Trump campaign or its allies come up with that will discourage blacks, Latinos, Jews, and urban whites from voting for Biden?


        September 7, 2020 at 12:40 PM

  18. Trump, oddly enough, seems to have no actual friends (and the people he thought of as friends would leak to the press) and so only trusts family.

    In addition, so many of the people who used to work for him are leakers and try to damage him.

    So the question is, how does Trump so consistently surround himself with traitors and how abrasive must Trump be to make an enemy out of so many of his former staff?

  19. Proles largely don’t believe rumors about Trump, even when true.

    An effect that is created by the elimination of the press’s journalistic credibility in their minds, due to the press’s acknowledged political activism in regard to Trump.

    Anti Trump stories are white noise for conservatives (loosely: proles) and click-bait for the Left.

    To belabor the point: you can only yell “fire” in the theater so many times before people ignore you and then eventually plan for your institutional replacement.

    They want to watch the film for which they paid,

    Constantly yelling about often-false and yet deeply interfering stories interferes with that.

    In response, Trump supporters collect ever more political currency. Their mob will eventually win in regard to some points of political interest. The Press needs to reform itself so that it survives.

    This present dynamic is obviously not good for democracy, but neither was committing the MSM as the DNC propaganda arm.

    Couching the corporate Press as “free” and deserving as some sort of special credibility was always a democratically-flawed concept.

    Trump just prohibited critical race training in the Federal government, which is as good as a Federal bureaucracy moral-mandate going forward. Especially given the commentary submitted with the prohibition.

    For Trump’s political-interest-fulfillment starved base, that’s as good an October surprise as can be expected.

    Just like Antifa will never quite escape the domestic terrorist label going forward, a cascading refutation of critical race theory will be expected within institutions. That effect will obviously be blunted to a degree due to the left’s control of so many institutions, but the effect will never quite diminish and will be continuously felt.

    In essence, anyone who reinstates within the federal training system will be explicitly doing so with the accepted context that all Whites are racist.

    Prior, the government wasn’t forced to explicitly accept that premise. Critical race training was just one more type of training that the government offered.

    In the minds of the plausible deniers: the Federal Government, in any formalized sense, may not have even been aware of, and certainly not responsible for promoting, the racial ideology of one of hundreds of training types that they contract out for.

    Going, forward, there is no plausible deniability.

    The offer of this training will also have to at least implicitly confront, accept, or deny the White House charge of anti-White racism.

    There aren’t many people with the Power Level who will have the political currency to refute it or make anti White racism formally acceptable at the Federal Level. It can happen, no doubt, but that act will use up an inordinate amount of political currency at the highest level (as a formal decree of one of the three branches). Insofar as the Federal Government will remain anti-White to any degree and within any bureaucracy within it, it will likely be accomplished with more subtle means. However, they may now have a fight on their hands going forward.

  20. While carrying is of course the absolute best means of self-protection sometimes it isn’t possible. In those situations, a Byrna HD just might save your posterior. It’s an air pistol that fires hard plastic balls at 300 feet per second from a 5-round magazine. The impact from one of these is extremely unlikely to be lethal, so you will face far fewer legal complications, but is hard enough to stop a criminal in his tracks. For even better effect it can fire balls containing a powered form of pepper spray. Speaking of which, the Byrna has a much greater effective range than conventional pepper spray, and the farther away you can stop the criminal the better.
    Legally, the Byrna isn’t a firearm and can be purchased and carried without permits or other paperwork. Naturally enough it’s not legal in NYC, but it’s fine elsewhere in the state. Another downside is that it’s about the size of a large pistol, and therefore difficut to conceal unless you’re wearing heavy clothing. Carrying one openly is legal but probably not advisable because it might cause alarm. But for carrying one in your car, or a bag, or a woman’s purse, it’s great.
    A Byrna runs about $350, and delivery times are running about two months.

  21. When I heard Trump’s suckers, etc. comments, I thought how is this news? Trump is so clear that he regards military service or anything else that not in a person’s nihilistic self-interest as foolish that for someone to not already know Trump believes in the troops as suckers I would think they pay little enough attention to the news that odds are high they also do not know who Mike Pence is.

      Tell you what…you produce an analog audio/video recording of Trump saying this, with 5 minutes of tape before and 5 minutes after, then, maybe, I would concede the point.

      None of this corroborating evidence exists. It just exists in the minds of Trump-haters, when Trump has done enormous good for the military and for the VA.

      Meanwhile, there is plenty of audio/video of Joe Biden: 1) Cornpop; 2) how much he likes kids bouncing on his lap; 3) kids running their hands up his wet legs and watching the hair pop up; 4) Bragging about getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired to help his son; 5) getting all handsy with children in the Senate.

  24. The real October surprise will be Trump invoking the Insurrection Act, which grants him enormous powers.

    1) Arrest and indefinitely hold all public officials — including mayors, governors, state legislators, federal judges, and law enforcement officials — who support “rebellion” against the United States or who have “given aid or comfort” to the enemies of America. (Section 3)

    2) Eliminate House of Representatives positions for California and other states which are engaged in supporting Big Tech censorship platforms that are supporting the rebellion against the United States of America and “abridging” the right of voting-aged citizens to participate in elections (via censorship). This implies that Electoral College votes would also be proportionally reduced in these states. (Section 2) It would also apply to states like Oregon which are reportedly funding “war encampment” installations that house insurrectionists who are unleashed each night to attack federal buildings and federal law enforcement officers.

    3) Eliminate all federal financial support for cities and states which are engaged in “insurrection or rebellion” against the United States. Section 3 specifically states that all such claims of federal money obligations to the states “shall be held illegal and void.” (Section 4)

      A moving company by the name of Elite Moving just shoved a family to Scarsdale per the article (wait, I thought every deep pocket rob n barren who made their fortunes via value transference is moving to the Hamptons?).

      There is an interesting story about a balding mid 30s Hell’s Kitchen resident who is engaged in value transference and is now living with his mom in Hastings on Hudson (a small boring river town in Lower Westchester). Says he loves NYC, but he had to move to a quiet environment for safety concerns.

      This mass exodus just turns a big city like Manhattan into a pleasant ghost town devoid of people like many small town Americana. It never ceases to amaze me how the sheep mentality of the masses causes panic buying and now panic moving.

    Its grocery store, Whole Foods, which also reflects the same values before its acquisition, isn’t packed like Trader Joe’s with its riff n raff shoppers grabbing every item like vultures, stemming from its cheaply priced items that elicit a scarcity yet irrational mindset. Cost prohibition also causes undesirables to stay away. Instead of spraying disinfectant on the hands of shoppers like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods provides self-serve hand sanitizing dispensers. Instead of forcing their employees to be security guards like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods provides actual security guards for its workers and shoppers.

  28. I don’t think the left has an October Surprise. They’ll just keep up the negative stories until after the election. Trump is doing remarkably well with minorities. which spells doom for Biden. Biden isn’t moving the needle at all. He’s way too old and senile to even handle softball questions now. The debates should be Trump trouncing that lunkhead. Biden was a fool before senility set in. Obama used him as assassination insurance.
    I think Trump will win. There is no enthusiasm for Biden-Harris. Most of the votes will be anti-Trump voters, but how many of the voters will actually show up is a question. Minorities are notorious for not showing up. Biden has very little ground game. He’s coasting. I think he’ll even lose the popular vote.
    The debates will be a one sided affair I’d expect. Biden is reading off the teleprompter. So much so that he’s saying the non-verbal parts of the feed. He’s toast in the debates. He’ll come off poorly at best.
    If all of you think a Billionaire is “prole”, you don’t know the meaning of that word. Trump comes across as a bit crass, but this is the Age of the Kardashians. His blunt style is appreciated by the average voter. Biden tries to be an elitist, but he’s never been that smart. His senility has him hiding most of the campaign season. The more you see this guy, the more people aren’t going to ever vote for him. He’s not likable and has that bad smile that looks plastic and fake.

    • A picture is a thousand words. Trump has enough money to be a boss and enough money to run a golf course in Briarcliff Manor in Westchester County in the Hudson Valley, in order that a nearby Clinton man can play a game with Bloomy and the former Guido Mayor of NYC. The Clintons live in nearby Chappaqua.

      Now, Briarcliff Manor was also where the hulking guido cop worked as a police officer, you know, the play buddy of Jeffrey Epstein while he was rotting in jail.

      There is no conservative or liberal policies in America when it comes to our elites, just bosses who want whatever out of their company. Should I hire a Monique as my secretary and a Tyrone as my mail clerk or a Megan as my secretary and a Tyler as my mail clerk? This is what bosses do. Politics between our policy makers is office squabble between partners and managers of a business.
