2020 Election: The Closing Week
Biden-Harris Would Be A Disaster For The Country

In all these ways:

  1. Goodbye Fossil Fuels - In the last debate, Joe Biden was forced to concede he will end the oil and gas industry. He will end fracking and will establish new onerous regulations on the energy industry. The end result, higher energy bills and a massive loss of good paying jobs. As for Texas and other energy providing states, he gave us the equivalent of the middle finger.

  2. Biden-Harris Tax Increases on Working Americans - Their stealth wordsmanship doesn't hide a few things: First, with inflation, the middle class over time will have a social security tax increase since the Biden's proposal is not indexed for inflation. Second, Biden supports increasing the capital gains tax for any American who invests. Three, Biden raises dividend taxes impacting the middle class and its 401k retirement plans. Fourth, Biden increases corporate taxes. The non-partisan Tax Foundation in a study reports: "Labor bears between 50% and 100% of the burden of the corporate income tax, with 70% or higher the most likely outcome. Finally, Biden say they will repeal the Trump tax cuts which benefited all taxpayers thus a tax increase on the middle class"

  3. Biden will Re-regulate America - Returning to the over-regulated Obama-Biden economy will by 2030 lead to 4.9 million fewer jobs and the economy shrunk by $2.6 trillion. The average family would see a loss of $6,500 in their household income. The Wall Street Journal recently editorialized that:
    "The risk from Joe Biden's policies isn't that they will send the economy reeling right away ... The problem is that they will have a long-term corrosive impact by raising the cost of capital, reducing the incentive to work and invest, and reducing productivity across the economy. Americans will pay the price in a lower standard of living than they otherwise would - and that they deserve."
  4. Biden is Bought and Paid for by Foreign Interests - China, Russia, the Ukraine - the major media - Twitter and Facebook - suppressed (censored) the story about Hunter Biden's laptop with dramatic proof of the uber unqualified Hunter being hired or paid millions and clear evidence the "big guy" Joe Biden was paid his share, of course indirectly, so Joe can say "I received no direct payments from foreign interests." Sorry Joe, you are not being truthful.

  5. Biden Will Pack the Supreme Court - He won't answer now, but he is hiding his radical position. Per Gary Bauer of Campaign for Working Families:
    "It is absolutely clear that if Joe Biden wins the White House, and if Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi control Congress next year, Democrats will steal the Supreme Court by packing it with left-wing activists. Some progressive leaders are urging them to create as many as five new seats."
    "My friends, there is nothing in the Constitution about the size of the Supreme Court. Over the course of our nation's history it has been changed four times, last settling at nine justices in 1869, 151 years ago. And it only takes an act of Congress to add or subtract justices.
    "If Pelosi and Schumer pass legislation expanding the number of justices to whatever they need to have a majority on the high court, there is no way that 'President Biden' would veto that legislation. And 'President Harris' would eagerly sign it too!
    "The left wants to 'fundamentally transform' the Supreme Court and our country in the process."
  6. Biden's Campaign is Hiding the Uber-Leftist Running Mate Kamala Harris. Why? She is a radical from California, the most leftist U.S. Senator. Wrong on most critical issues and given Biden's age and declining mental condition, she would likely be President at some point if they prevail. The American people, if given a chance to know her, would reject her and her running mate.

So at the end of the day, Biden-Harris are not from our parent's Democratic party. This is some strange socialist far left European party that doesn't represent America or our values. As Vice President Pence says, "The choice in this election is whether America remains America."

Trump-Pence is the better of the two choices.

Covid-19 Still A Problem, Biden's Answer?
Trust Me, And If The Scientists Tell Us, Lockdown

Joe Biden's answer to Chinese Covid-19? Blame President Trump. Don't be fooled, he has no answers. We have seen what lockdown was good for, economic and personal devastation.

To learn what is really happening with Covid-19, go to Here are the highlights:

"Recently, three of the world's top epidemiologists published the Great Barrington Declaration, a short treatise that advocates a smart approach to managing the coronavirus pandemic. Professors Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford University, Sunetra Gupta of Oxford University, and Martin Kulldorff of Harvard University argue that societies across the globe should reopen immediately and completely."

"Instead of observing measures designated to slow the spread of the virus, the young and healthy should resume normal activity in order to incur herd immunity and thereby protect those vulnerable to severe illness. The authors urge the adoption of this strategy, which they call 'Focused Protection,' in light of increasing evidence that 'current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health... Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.

"As of this writing, the Declaration has been signed by 3,089 other medical and public health scientists, 4,532 medical practitioners, and around 70,000 members of the general public.

"Lockdowns, once lifted, the virus simply resurges, as has been demonstrated by countries such as Peru, which initially implemented one of the world's most extreme lockdowns and now has one of the worst outbreaks. Melbourne, Australia, has been under a severe lockdown for over a month, despite having declared early victory against the virus. The United Kingdom has been enacting various forms of shutdown for several weeks after having been more or less open for the summer, and the mayor of New York City and governor of New York State have been threatening to impose localized lockdowns in the Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods in which cases are rising. Thus, whether endorsed by the scientific community or politicians, forced closures of schools and businesses are the default mechanism for managing rising cases in many parts of the world.

"Oxfam recently published a report concluding that 130 million people will be pushed to the brink of starvation due to supply chain disruptions resulting from lockdowns around the world. As Time magazine explains, that is exponentially more people than will succumb to the virus itself. The CDC has estimated the probable occurrence of more than 93,000 'non-Covid 'excess deaths' this year, including 42,427 from cardiovascular conditions, 10,686 from diabetes and 3,646 from cancer. Many are due to government shutdowns of non-essential medical care.' That is in this country alone.

"Likewise, mental health is deteriorating; substance, child and domestic abuse are increasing; and children, especially those who come from families without means, are falling behind in school. Countless businesses have closed, many for good, spelling financial disaster for their owners and hardship for employees. All of this is due to lockdowns, despite the common misattributions in headlines to the 'coronavirus' itself.

"Most of us understand and accept that preventing these deaths must be balanced against other interests. If, for instance, we banned vehicular travel in order to avoid deaths resulting from traffic accidents, but doing so caused 130 million deaths from supply chain disruptions, we would immediately recognize this as a failing proposition. Clearly, the same logic ought to apply here.

"The writers of the Great Barrington Declaration expressly recognize both sides of the equation, and seek to minimize coronavirus deaths among the vulnerable and suffering inflicted upon the non-vulnerable. It should be obvious which is the better approach."

Why Trump And Republicans Are More Deserving
Of Your Vote Than The Democrats This Year

TCR Comment: Recently we came across two individuals who in their own words makes the case to vote GOP this year. Please read their messages and vote from the top of the ballot to the bottom as all the elections matter.

If you're a liberal and can't stand Trump and can't possibly fathom why anyone would want to vote for him, let me fill you in. We can't stand you! You've done everything in your power to try and destroy this country by tearing down our police, our borders, our history systematically destroying our schools and brainwashing our kids into thinking that socialism is the answer to everything.

Demonizing religion and faith. And glorifying abortion, violence, and thug culture. From calling us racists to expecting everyone of every color to follow our laws, to ridiculing us for having the audacity to wish someone a Merry Christmas, or have a flag on the Fourth of July or stand for our national anthem or - oh, the horror! - wear a MAGA hat out in public.

So much for your tolerance. We are voting for Trump not because he's the most charming character on the block, but because we vote policy over personality. And we are sick and tired of your divisive and destructive and ignorant and intolerant behavior and beliefs, parading around as some kind of wokeness. We are voting for Trump because of you.

Alexandra Lains, Ambassador for Turning Point USA

To all our Democrat friends:

That moment when someone says, I can't believe you would vote for Trump, I simply reply, I'm not voting for Trump.

I'm voting for the first amendment and freedom of speech.

I'm voting for the Second Amendment and my right to defend my life and my family.

I'm voting for the next Supreme Court Justice(s) to protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I'm voting for the continued growth of my retirement 401(k) and the stock market.

I'm voting for a return of our troops from foreign countries and the end to America's involvement in foreign conflicts.

I'm voting for the Electoral College and for the Republic in which we live.

I'm voting for the police to be respected once again and to ensure law and order.

I'm voting for the continued appointment of federal judges who respect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I'm voting for our jobs to remain in America and not be outsourced all over again to China, Mexico and other foreign countries.

I'm voting for secure borders and legal immigration.

I'm voting for the military and the veterans who fought for this country to give the American people their freedoms.

I'm voting for continued peace progress in the Middle East.

I'm voting to fight against human/child trafficking.

I'm voting for freedom of religion.

I'm voting for the right to speak my opinion and not be censored.

I'm not just voting for one person. I'm voting for the future of my country.

I'm voting for my children and my grandchildren, to ensure their freedoms and their future.

What are you voting for?

Michael Richker, Houston Texas "Patriot"
