When President Trump had his interview last Sunday with Chris Wallace, he made two points: the first was that Joe Biden's brain is running on empty. The second was that Trump had taken a test of his cognitive ability and passed, but it was "very hard." Leftists fell over themselves laughing because, as they repeatedly claimed, the test is a dead easy one intended to prove minimal mental functioning.
It was a perfect Trump maneuver, one that saw him bait a Demo-rat trap and have the left gallop into it. I'm betting, though, that Trump didn't expect that he'd catch more rats than Biden himself. On Thursday, though, a second rat walked right into the trap and had it snap shut on him.
The economic impact of coronavirus is a “tinderbox” that will drive civil unrest and instability in developing countries in the second half of 2020,
Highest risk countries facing a “perfect storm”, where protests driven by the pandemic’s economic fallout are likely to inflame existing grievances, include Nigeria, Iran, Bangladesh, Algeria and Ethiopia,
Thirty-seven countries, mainly in Africa and Latin America, could face unparalleled street protests for up to three years
But the risk of unrest in other countries including India, Brazil, Russia, South Africa, Indonesia and Turkey are only slightly less acute and still constitute a threat to stability
“It’s a tinderbox” he said. “It doesn’t take as much as it did a year ago.”
Goldman Sachs will pay $2.5 billion in cash, and fully recover at least $1.4 billion in assets to resolve three bond transactions the bank oversaw for the 1Malaysia Development Bhd., 1MDB for short.
Security was tight outside the U.S. consulate in the Chinese city of Chengdu on Saturday as staff inside prepared to leave, a day after China ordered it to close in response to a U.S. order for China to shut its consulate in Houston.
The tit-for-tat consulate closures have brought a sharp deterioration in relations between the countries, which have the world's two largest economies.

Regarding the foolishness of DAs proclaiming federal officers will be arrested for doing their sworn duties, federal officers have jurisdiction everywhere in the United States.
I find it disturbing that people in prosecutorial positions don't know this.
"According to my source, during the meetings, King County legal staff repeatedly called the county court system a "white supremacist organization" and even declared that light-skinned emojis in emails are racist symbols of "white approval."

So, I just officially saw my first Joe Biden TV ad. It’s on Fox during a baseball game. The entire thing was Biden talking about wearing a mask, and different pictures of Joe Biden in a mask. That’s it. That’s the whole message. This has been the most surreal, bizarre Presidential campaign season so far. And it’s only going to get much much worse as we head to November.

Actually, there are financial institutions in Arizona that won’t allow open carry of weapons into their branch.
When those citizens can open carry into a Federal Post Office.
Why a business would put staff into an “enforcement” role is bizarre. Nothing good comes from it. Risk far outweighs Reward.

How do people like this get into positions of power to begin with? Are these voters that brain dead? Abolishing prisons?!?! To be replaced with what? Hugs? This whole abolishing police and now prisons thing is absolutely insane. What are they going to do with all the bad guys? Or are they under the deluded opinion that all crimes are the result of “muh white supremacy?” Can nobody take responsibility for their own actions anymore? Is every one of society’s ills the white mans fault?
