    Some Cleveland businesses aren't taking any chances ahead of Tuesday's first presidential debate and have started boarding up storefronts and offices over concerns of possible unrest coupled with a contentious election season. "This is some concern based on all of the folks with all of the different ideologies that will be coming to town, and if they will direct that energy toward themselves and / or if they will do toward personal property," Cleveland Councilman Blaine Griffin told Fox News.

    By Chandelis Duster | CNN President Donald Trump floated his daughter Ivanka Trump as a vice presidential running mate during the 2016 election, according to a report by The Washington Post on Monday. Citing an upcoming book by former Trump deputy campaign chair Rick Gates, “Wicked Game,” that will be published October 13, The Post reported that during discussions about selecting a running mate, then-Republican presidential candidate Trump said to a group of top campaign aides, “I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?” “She’s bright, she’s smart, she’s beautiful, and the people would love her!,” he added, according to the newspaper. The presidential candidate was so keen to the idea of Ivanka as a vice...
    “She’s bright, she’s smart, she’s beautiful, and the people would love her!” he reportedly said. Donald Trump reportedly floated the concept of having his daughter Ivanka as running mate, according to his former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates. Gates is releasing a book about his time with the first family, and in it, as The Washington Post reported, he claimed that for weeks Trump pushed to have his eldest daughter, then 34, as his pick for vice president. While his top aides chatted in 2016 about who they thought a good pick would be, Trump reportedly interjected that he had his own idea in mind. “I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?” Gates claimed he...

    President Donald Trump reportedly pushed for his daughter, Ivanka Trump, to serve as his running mate back in 2016, a new book from former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates claims. Bloomberg received an advance copy of Gates’ book, “Wicked Game: An Insider’s Story on How Trump Won, Mueller Failed and America Lost,” and first reported the claim Monday morning.

    I am really looking forward to Tuesday night’s presidential debate. I have no idea which Joe Biden will show up for the debate. And I have no idea how President Donald Trump will respond to whichever Biden appears on stage. Chris Wallace, the moderator (and a serious, reliably objective journalist), is a much more predictable participant. I am confident President Trump will competently handle his questions. MAUREEN MACKEY: THIS KEY JOE BIDEN QUESTION NEEDS TO BE ASKED EARLY AND OFTEN However, it is the Biden uncertainty that is much more interesting. The Biden we have been watching since he clinched the Democratic nomination has been more and more incompetent and unpredictable. He hides in his Wilmington, Del., basement about half the time (specifically,...

    The rumored full title of Sacha Baron Cohen's sequel to his wildly successful 2006 comedy Borat hints at a connection to Vice President Mike Pence. The sequel is reportedly entitled Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan, according to a now-deleted listing at the Writers Guild of America website (via The Film Stage).

    Video of former Vice President Joe Biden jokingly calling service members 'stupid b*****ds' during a 2016 speech to Air Force troops has resurfaced after conservatives blasted a brief clip of the speech.  Biden, who was President Obama's Vice President at the time, had been with his wife giving a speech to 1000 members of the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing on March 7 in an 'undisclosed location in Southwest Asia.'  Jill Biden had offered her remarks before the former vice president was introduced by 1st Lt. Karen Johnson, who he had nominated to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy when he was still a Delaware senator. It was then that Biden cracked his joke.   Biden, who was Vice President at the...
    (CNN)Democratic nominee Joe Biden is moving from briefing books into full days of preparations. President Donald Trump is studying notecards and getting help from a long-time ally, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.As Trump and Biden enter a key weekend of preparation for their showdown in Cleveland on Tuesday, both campaigns have been quiet about how the candidates are preparing. Biden's early debate preparations focused on reading briefing books and holding smaller prep sessions with policy aides, people familiar with his preparations said. He typically prefers having aides pepper him with questions in rapid-fire form over conducting full mock debates, those people said.Ron Klain, Biden's former chief of staff who also managed ex-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's presidential debate work, is...
    Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and author of Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, called for Senate Republicans to subpoena Hunter Biden to investigate financial dealings with foreign interests, offering his recommendation on Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Schweizer reflected on a report released on Wednesday from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs entitled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.” Schweizer said the report corroborated much of his own research into the Biden family’s financial ties to foreign interests, including the Chinese government and Ukrainian oligarchs. “[The Senate] actually got access to Treasury Department reports on suspicious...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden promised earlier this month that his climate change policies will bring new jobs — “good, paying union jobs.” He has made — and broken such promises before. In 2009, Biden promised that $529 million in new Department of Energy loan guarantees to Fisker Automotive to produce electric cars in Delaware would provide “billions of dollars in good, new jobs.” Four years later, Fisker filed for bankruptcy — without producing a single car in the U.S. As Breitbart News reported at the time, Fisker was granted the loan guarantees to produce a hybrid sports car called the “Karma” for the luxury auto market, with a price of $103,000. High-profile political figures lobbied for the deal. Fisker...
    Olivia Troye — a former aide to Vice President Mike Pence who has heavily criticized President Donald Trump since leaving the White House — is firing back at the administration’s efforts to discredit her. Appearing on Friday’s edition of The View, slammed her former supervisor — Pence national security adviser Gen. Keith Kellogg — for what she says are false attacks on her character. Kellogg bashed Troye at a White House press briefing on Tuesday — claiming that he fired her because her job performance had fallen off. “What bothers me about what Olivia said is by insinuation the disparagement of the task force, the vice president, and the president of the United States,” Kellogg said. “I am very...
    BAMAKO – Mali’s transitional president and vice president were sworn into office Friday, more than a month after a coup in the West African nation. The induction ceremony in the capital, Bamako, took place as Mali remains under sanctions by the 15-nation West African regional bloc, ECOWAS, and amid uncertainty about details of the transition period. Former Defense Minister and retired Col. Maj. Bah N’Daw is the new transitional president while Col. Assimi Goita, head of the junta that staged the Aug. 18 coup, is Mali’s new vice president. The two, along with a prime minister who will be chosen in the coming days, are to lead the transitional government to elections in 18 months. “I am ready...

Obama, the first black president, is teaming with Harris, the first black vice presidential nominee, to headline two fundraisers for the Biden campaign.

The former president delivered a keynote at the Democratic convention and has previously helped Biden...
    Thursday on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) reacted to a U.S. Senate report highlighting potential wrongdoing with business dealings involving 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. Johnson said the “troubling” findings show the former vice president has been caught in “a lie” by denying having spoken with his son about his dealings in Ukraine. “As far as we can tell, there is only one person in the Obama administration that actually talked to the vice president about it,” Johnson advised. “Amos Hochstein, who was a special envoy over to Ukraine actually did talk to the vice president about how troubling this was, this conflict of interest, which, by the way, led the vice...

    The Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees' report on their investigation into Hunter Biden points to "massive corruption" and reveals "serious criminal violations that occurred here between Joe Biden, his son Hunter, [and] the government of Ukraine," Rush Limbaugh said on his syndicated radio show Wednesday. The new report details the younger Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions."  KIM STRASSEL: NEW REPORT REVEALS BIDEN'S 'WINK NOD' APPROACH TO HUNTER'S BUSINESS DEALINGS OVERSEAS The report shows that Joe Biden, who was running U.S.-Ukraine relations and policy for the Obama administration while his son Hunter helped Burisma fight corruption charges in the Eastern European country, was warned of an ethical conflict of interest by government officials, whose concerns went unaddressed. "It was a clear...
    The Senate Republican majority of the Homeland Security Committee and the Finance Committee released a joint report Wednesday leaving powerful allegations against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. The investigation of the younger Biden's actions connected to his time on the board of Burisma in Ukraine, which he joined in May 2014, uncovered damning new details of possible corruption, hindering of U.S. foreign policy, and assisting Moscow's effort to spread disinformation. The report's "key findings" list a number of concerning areas when it comes to Biden and his international work and potential conflicts of interest. KEY FINDING 1: "In early 2015 the former Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv,...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden claimed there was “no evidence” showing his son Hunter Biden did anything wrong by his involvement with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings (Burisma) during an interview in December. However, a recent report from the Senate says that might not be true. “I don’t know what he was doing. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board,” Biden said in an interview with Axios in 2019. When pressed on whether Biden believed everything his son did was “kosher,” Biden said he trusted his son. “I trust my son…” Biden continued, before trying to shift attention to President Donald Trump’s family. “If you want to talk about problems, let’s talk...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed in December that he was never told his son’s business dealings in Ukraine posed a conflict of interest. He also said last September that he had never spoken to his son about his business dealings. A new report suggests both of those claims may be false. The report, released Wednesday by two Senate committees, suggests that Biden was briefed about the fact that his son’s dealings with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate, suggested a conflict of interest for the Obama administration. The report, which was made public on Wednesday, indicates that at least two individuals raised concerns about Hunter Biden’s service on Burisma’s board of directors during the former vice president’s tenure in office. The...
    (CNN)Senate Republicans on Wednesday issued a partisan report attacking Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden over his role on the board of a Ukrainian energy company but says little about the former vice president beyond the long-known potential conflict of interest issues that arose because of Hunter's position.The report was released fewer than two months before the presidential election and days before the first debate between Biden and President Donald Trump.The report focuses largely on Hunter Biden's role on the board of Burisma, the Ukrainian energy firm. The report says concerns were raised inside the Obama administration and with Biden directly about the potential issues surrounding Hunter Biden's position. But the Republicans do not write that US policy changed...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to assure voters on Monday that Republican efforts to paint him as a “radical socialist” were inaccurate, but may have inadvertently taken a swipe at his vanquished progressive rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Biden, who has struggled to make inroads with his party’s left wing, was asked during an interview with a local Fox affiliate in Wisconsin if he was concerned about recent claims President Donald Trump made alleging the Democrat ticket is a “trojan horse” for more radical elements of the progressive movement. “I beat the socialist,” Biden responded. “That’s how I got elected. That’s how I got the nomination. Do I look like a socialist? Look at my career, my whole career....
    As the national death toll from the coronavirus pandemic passes 200,000 people, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden cautioned that Americans must avoid “becoming numb to the toll that is taken.” The former vice president, speaking Monday at an aluminum manufacturing foundry in the crucial battleground state of Wisconsin, once against blasted President Trump’s handling of the pandemic, saying “Trump panicked. The virus was too big for him.” TRYING TO EXPAND MAP, BIDEN LAUNCHES AD BLITZ IN TWO NEW BATTLEGROUNDS Biden also made a personal plea to voters who supported President Obama in 2012 but voted for Trump in 2016, saying he understands why they fled the Democratic Party and vowed if he’s elected, “you will be seen, heard and respected by...
    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — For decades, women have dealt cards or served drinks in casinos, but they rarely got the chance to run the joint. But women now run four of Atlantic City’s nine casinos in what some industry executives and observers say could be the future of the gambling industry. Caesars Entertainment hired Jacqueline Grace last week to run the Tropicana casino as its senior vice president and general manager. She is one of two Black women in charge of casinos in Atlantic City, joining Melonie Johnson, who took over leadership of the Borgata this year as its president. The other women at the helm of Atlantic City casinos are Terry Glebocki, CEO of the Ocean Casino Resort,...

The move is likely to be immediately rejected by the international community, which has called on Mali's junta to restore civilian rule as soon as possible or face additional sanctions. Col.

    Senate Democrats are readying for a protracted effort to keep the Supreme Court seat vacated by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg open until at least January, when a new administration can take office, but those plans could be hampered by former Vice President Joe Biden’s reluctance to release a shortlist of nominees for the post. On Friday, shortly after Ginsburg’s passing was announced by Chief Justice John Roberts, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) joined a bevy of progressive activists and groups by calling forthe seat to remain vacant until the next president is installed in office. “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be...
    In a Friday piece for Forbes, the publication’s editor-in-chief, Steve Forbes, outlined the possibility of Nancy Pelosi becoming President of the United States. According to Forbes, the current disarray surrounding America’s vote-by-mail system is all but guaranteed to cause delayed election results that will include a legal battle between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. The publishing executive predicted that many states would lack clear winners, which could leave both candidates without a majority of votes when the Electoral College meets in December. In a video accompanying the piece, the columnist noted that Pelosi is next in line for the presidency after the vice president. If neither Biden and Kamala Harris or Trump and Mike Pence secure a formal Electoral College...
    CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed President Donald Trump failed to mention the coronavirus pandemic in his State of the Union. VERDICT: FALSE. Trump explicitly mentioned the coronavirus, and Biden has made this same false claim before. Trump asserted during his State of the Union address on February 4, 2020: “Protecting Americans’ health also means fighting infectious diseases. We are coordinating with the Chinese government and working closely together on the coronavirus outbreak in China. My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat.” Biden, who has made criticism of Trump’s response to the pandemic a cornerstone of his White House campaign, told a group of union supporters in Duluth, Minnesota, on Friday that the incumbent’s leadership...

    PHOENIX (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence is set to appear at two events in Arizona Friday as the reelection campaign of Republican President Donald Trump works to solidify its support in the battleground state. Pence's visit comes at the end of a week that saw the president, his daughter Ivanka Trump and Pence's wife, Karen, make stops in the state. Republicans are trying to shore up their position in a historically red state where polling shows Democrat Joe Biden with a slight advantage.

    Democratic socialist and "squad" member Rep.

Ocasio-Cortez, who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic primary, told JustTheNews reporter Nick Ballasy she agrees with Sanders' reported concerns that Joe Biden is not progressive enough for the modern left. "Of course I do," Ocasio-Cortez said. "We're different people, and clearly I, in the primary, one of the reasons why I was supportive of Sen.

    (CNN)The Justice Department's decision to open a criminal investigation into former Trump administration National Security Adviser John Bolton relating to the publication of his book, as reported by the New York Times on Tuesday, is equal parts futile and dangerous. The move to investigate Bolton stands little chance of resulting in a criminal charge and conviction on the merits alone. And, bigger picture, the move appears to signal a pernicious effort to use the Justice Department's might to punish perceived political enemies of President Donald Trump.

    A phone call between Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was leaked Tuesday showing the two former leaders discussing what he could and couldn’t tell the incoming Trump administration, with Biden telling the foreign leader that he wants to stay “deeply engaged” in their diplomatic work as a private citizen. The call, revealed by Ukrainian politician Andriy Derkach, took place on Nov. 16, 2016, just a week after then-candidate Trump won the presidential election. During the exchange, the outgoing vice president and the then-president of Ukraine discussed the topic of visas, “something we have tried to sell to the Ukrainian people,” Poroshenko said. “Hey, Petro. It’s Joe. How are you?” the conversation between the...
    Representative Karen Bass (D-CA) said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” that President Donald Trump didn’t “care about his own supporters” because he was holding indoor campaign events that don’t require masks and social distancing. Tapper said, “You’re a prominent supporter of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. One of the frequent attacks we hear from the Trump campaign is that Biden is hiding in his basement instead of spending time on the campaign trail. Obviously, that is a huge overstatement, it’s campaign rhetoric, but it is true that since the end of the conventions, President Trump has taken at least ten trips while Biden has taken six. Do you want Biden to ramp up his public schedule to get out there to win...
    2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden mistakenly promoted running mate Kamala Harris, elevating her to the top of their ticket. “A Harris-Biden administration is going to relaunch that effort and keep pushing it further to make it easier for military spouses and veterans to find meaningful careers, to ensure teachers know how to support military children in their classrooms," Biden stated during a veterans roundtable in Tampa, Florida. “A Harris-Biden administration...” pic.twitter.com/2Bdurd6hGQ— Jake Schneider (@jacobkschneider) September 15, 2020 The two-term vice president's flub follows a similar misstep by Harris on Saturday. “A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States," the California senator told Arizona business owners on the weekend.

    Democratic candidate Joe Biden held an Instagram chat with Jerry Harris weeks before the Cheer star was placed under FBI investigation for allegedly soliciting sex and explicit pictures from two minors.   The allegations against Harris, 21, come from 14-year-old Texas twins, Charlie and Sam, who claim they were harassed at cheerleading competitions and online from when they were 13 and Harris was 19 years old.   In June, Harris tweeted a clip of a short Instagram session where he appeared alongside Joe Biden. The post was accompanied with a caption urging black voters to turn out on Election Day to vote for the former Vice President.   'I had the opportunity to speak with Vice President @JoeBiden a few days ago about...
    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) may only be vice-presidential nominee on the Democratic ticket, but she’s already promising that a “Harris administration with Joe Biden” will be a boon to voters.

    Asunción, Sep 14 . .- The guerrilla Army of the Paraguayan People (EPP) released this Monday the young indigenous man kidnapped along with former Paraguayan vice president Óscar Denis, 74, last week in northern Paraguay. The Minister of the Interior, Euclides Acevedo, confirmed on social networks the release of Adelio Mendoza, 21 years old and employed in Denis’s cattle ranch, which is supposedly still in the hands of the guerrillas.

    In the 2016 election, candidate Donald Trump barely alluded to Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, but four years later, the president is aiming much of his artillery against Kamala Harris. Trump said this week that “no one wants her,” applying a pattern of sympathy that applies much more to women in leadership positions than to men. He told voters in North Carolina that it would be “an insult to our country” if Harris were the first president. Additionally, Trump and his allies are bent on mispronouncing Harris’s name, which his supporters say is a deliberate effort to portray the daughter of immigrants as unworthy of appearing in the front row of politics.

    President Donald Trump on Saturday ridiculed former Vice President Joe Biden’s political career, suggesting that the only thing he did was kiss former President Barack Obama’s ass. “He was the vice president for eight years, and he only did one thing good: He treated Obama good,” Trump said. The president said he was going to say something different, but the corporate media would be upset. “He kissed his ass!” yelled a supporter in the crowd. “That’s exactly what I was going to say,” Trump replied. “But it’s better if you say it.” “He kissed his ass!” the supporter repeated. “That’s what I said,” Trump reeled. “That’s what I was going [to say]…” The president commented on Biden and Obama during...
    Mark Newman, a key front-office figure in the Yankees’ 1996-2000 dynasty, has died. Born in 1949, Newman earned a law degree from Southern Illinois University, where he also played baseball. After serving as the head coach of Old Dominion University from 1981 to 1989, he joined the Yankees’ development staff in 1989, based in Tampa, and he rose from their coordinator of minor-league instruction to vice president of player development and scouting to senior vice president of baseball operations, working for the Yankees until 2014. He played an integral role in the development of the Yankees’ core quintet — Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera and Bernie Williams — who led the club’s drive to championships in 1996,...
    A cadre of high-profile Democrats are assembling a coalition to kill the Senate filibuster should former Vice President Joe Biden win this November and the party take full control of Congress. NBC News reported on Friday that a new group called Fix our Senate was in the early stages of getting up and running. The organization will help coordinate messaging for groups, activists, and senators supporting the abolition of the filibuster, a Senate rule requiring a three-fifths supermajority—usually 60 votes—to end debate on legislation. Fix our Senate will be run by Eli Zupnick, a former top aide to Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA). “Our goal is to lift the filibuster higher on progressives’ agendas … [and] make it clear to a...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told reporters Friday that he will only be talking about 9/11 on the 19th anniversary of the infamous attacks. Biden’s comments came as he was boarding a flight from Delaware to New York. He told reporters that his campaign would not be advertising for the day and that his comments would be solely regarding 9/11. “I’m not going to be making any news today,” Biden said according to Mediaite. “I’m not going to talk about anything other than 9/11.” Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden boards an airplane at New Castle County Airport September 11, 2020 in New Castle, Delaware.

              LEXINGTON, Virginia – In a talk that was part campaign speech, part motivational lecture, Vice President Mike Pence spoke to over 1,800 people on Thursday at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). Pence emphasized the Trump administration’s support of the military and its families. He concluded with a charge to the cadets to lead through integrity. In addition to VMI cadets and faculty,  VMI graduates Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy and U.S. Congressman Michael Waltz (R – Florida) were present. The event was not open to the public because there was not enough socially-distanced room. Pence cast the current class of VMI cadets as part of a larger history of VMI alumni who...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden struggled during a CNN interview that aired on Thursday to answer questions about communist China, and went as far as to say, “We want China to grow.” “Look what he’s done with China. It’s a disgrace,” Biden claimed about President Donald Trump’s policy. “What he’s done, he’s allowed the corporate America to be able to make money by continuing to export American jobs. It’s not made in America. Make it in another pl—for example, those, those, those, those carry bags that the military is using, they are supposed to be made—they are being deployed, made in America. They are made in China. They are made in China. He doesn’t do anything about any of that.”...

    Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris says President Trump's admission that he intentionally downplayed the severity of the coronavirus in the weeks before the pandemic swept the nation a key reason why Joe Biden needs to be elected president. “This is an individual who is not concerned about the health, safety and well-being of the American people and is frankly engaged in a reckless disregard of the lives and the health and well-being of our country. I find it so outrageous,” the senator from California and Biden’s running mate said Thursday at a campaign event in the crucial battleground state of Florida.

    A Thursday fact-check from Breitbart cited Pentagon data that shows Joe Biden recently cited coronavirus deaths in Michigan as those in the military. “Military COVID infected: 118,984,” Biden said in Michigan on Wednesday. “Military COVID-19 deaths: 6,114.” According to the U.S. Department of Defense, only seven soldiers have died from the virus to date.

    Sen. Kamala Harris has been deployed on the campaign trail to compensate for the older, more centrist head of the Democratic ticket, Joe Biden. Harris, the 2020 Democratic vice presidential nominee, made her first interstate swing to Wisconsin over the Labor Day long weekend, adding in-person stops to her already packed schedule of virtual events, fundraisers, and TV interviews. Unlike her predecessors and opposition, Harris features heavily in advertising for Biden, the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, including a 60-second racial justice spot called "We're Listening."

    Joe Biden and his supporters in the mainstream media believe America is "a wicked country that deserves suffering, punishment and pain," Fox News host Laura Ingraham argued Wednesday night. "The Ingraham Angle" host explained that "when a free people begin to doubt their own survival ... that is when they need optimistic, unshakable leaders the most. "Falling into self-doubt or dwelling on the worst aspects of our past or our present only breeds self-loathing, defeatism, and despair. And, ultimately, disaster," she added.
