Tip for Inoculating Your Children Against Bad Ideas:
If they still have a big bag of candy from trick-or-treating, it’s not too late to teach them about socialism by threatening to give half of it to a kid who stayed home watching TV.
Before you cast a vote for a Democrat, note that it might be the last vote you ever cast that’s not under an already-ruled-unconstitutional system in which Washington dictates state voting laws.
Ben & Jerry’s latest ice cream flavor, “Pecan Resist,” may be the company’s most openly pro-leftist product yet. But it turns out that one ingredient has been declared not only “racist” and "white supremacist," but it’s also in all their other products. In fact, they couldn’t be made without it, and I’m not talking about sanctimoniousness.
I love it when angry, leftist, PC identity groups eat their own. At least in this case, eating their own will be tasty. I should also point out that since "Pecan Resist" is chock full of nuts, some leftists might consider eating it to be cannibalism.

Reader Q&A on Sen. Grassley and SCOTUS nominations
From Richard P: I would like to hear your thoughts about an alleged statement by Charles Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that he would not put forth another Trump nominee for the Supreme Court in the remaining two years of the President's first term! Why would any Republican make such a pledge, especially in view of the despicable actions of the Democrats in trying to torpedo Kavanagh by any means possible? Ruth Ginsburg has vowed to stay on the court even if she is completely incompetent to function simply to try to derail the president. Please tell me Grassley made no such pledge.
From the Gov: Thanks for writing, Richard. Sen. Grassley didn’t say this, exactly. But it was about half as bad. As reported in THE HILL, shortly after Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation he told Martha McCallum on FOX News that his Judiciary Committee panel would not consider filling a vacancy in 2020, when the primary/campaign season is going on. This is a break from what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said.
In other words, if Ruth Bader Ginsberg retires or becomes incapacitated in 2019, Grassley will work towards confirmation of a replacement. But if she’s able to hold on till 2020 --- which she absolutely will do if she has to be hooked up to life-support machines or cryogenically frozen --- then, as far as Grassley’s concerned, the seat will remain vacant until the next President can nominate someone.
To get some perspective, let’s go back to 2016 and the blocked nomination of Merrick Garland during Obama’s last year in office. (Many leftists rationalize the hysterical fight to keep Kavanaugh off the bench at all costs as more-or-less “payback” for that.) Grassley is no doubt thinking about what happened with Garland, because he says it was in 2016 that he “pledged” not to take action on a High Court nominee in 2020.
It’s not quite the same situation, though, and one hopes Grassley will consider all factors if and when the issue comes up and rethink his decision. In 2016, term limits ensured that Obama, after eight years in office, was in lame-duck territory when he nominated Garland. Obama was pretty much on his way out the door, intending to leave us all to live with his choice. In contrast, Trump in 2020 will be the incumbent, presumably aiming to keep his seat for another four years. The Democrats will certainly be trying to get him out of office, but that will be far from a foregone conclusion.
Incidentally, Lindsay Graham has agreed with Grassley on this.
If this is how the Judiciary Committee plans to handle it, then Ruth Bader Ginsberg is on notice: keep exercising and taking those vitamins so you can stay on the bench into 2020, retire then, and President Trump won’t be able to fill your seat that year.
New Project Veritas: Beto Campaign illegally supporting caravans
According to the latest undercover videos just released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, it appears that there’s a reason why Texas Senate candidate and the Democrats’ latest dream boat, “Beto” O’Rourke, can’t afford to share any of the $70 million in donations that he’s raked in with other Democrats. His staffers seem to be saying that they’re spending campaign funds on pre-paid cards to provide supplies and transportation for Honduran aliens in migrant caravans heading to the US. One says if they’re questioned, they’ll clam it was for food for campaign events.
I suppose you could make that claim, if they expect the Honduran aliens to vote Democrat once they’re across the border. Not sure how well this is going to sit with people who already live in Texas, though.
Economic numbers released
In the last set of economic numbers to be released before the election, here’s what Republicans have to run on:
The government reports that in October, a whopping 250,000 jobs were added to the economy, including 32,000 manufacturing jobs (you know, the ones Obama told us were never coming back.) Unemployment held steady at 3.7%, the lowest in decades. There were a record 156,562,000 Americans employed, the twelfth such record set since Trump became President. The number of employed men over 20 and employed women over 20 also both set new records. Black unemployment was near a record low, while Hispanic unemployment reached an all-time low. And wage increases were the strongest since 2009.
Here’s what Democrats have to run on:
So if you’re one of those people whom Trump predicted would get “tired of winning,” you know who to vote for. Everyone else, you know who to vote for. Now, go vote as if your job depended on it, because it does.
