Jewish World Review Sept. 24, 2020

Rogue Report

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | USA Today cited a poll saying we are exhausted by all the drama in 2020. For six months, it's been Covid, home quarantine, shutdowns, police shootings, rioting, now civil war over a vacancy in the Supreme Court. Am I the only one left who's still fighting the scourge of plastic drinking straws?

University of California and Cal State schools made history this fall by eliminating the need for applicants to take the SAT test to get admitted, saying it's racist. I just read that ninety-seven percent of the world's population could be classified as stupid. Luckily, I'm in the other five percent.

NASA astronomers confirmed that an asteroid will pass closely by the Earth the night before Election Day in November. What else could this year possibly have in store? As if it couldn't get any weirder, Ruth Bader Ginsburg just became the first American in 2020 to die of natural causes.

Joe Biden's presidential campaign came to Wisconsin where he told voters the stakes in this election are higher now than ever before. He's always been quite open with his emotions. Joe Biden broke down into tears before reporters Friday after he heard that Babe Ruth had just died.

Senate Democrats vowed to turn the confirmation hearing of any Supreme Court nominee by Trump into a holy war against conservative values. Senate Republicans challenged the Democrats to bring it on. The Supreme Court could have the bloodiest vacancy since the Bates Motel.

CNN spoke to left-wing activists who vow street violence if Trump names a Supreme Court nominee. What if everybody took to the streets every time they didn't get something they want? I would have had to spend my entire college years protesting in front of the Chi Omega house.

President Trump had some good news and bad news from Nancy Pelosi's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. The bad news is, Pelosi said she has many arrows in her quiver that she could use against Trump. The good news is, he has just been upgraded from Hitler to Custer.

The Department of Education reports a backlog of applicants for private schools in L.A. due to curriculum dissatisfaction. Parents in L.A. have a tough time deciding whether to send their kids to a private school or a public school. They don't know if they want their kids exposed to cocaine or crack.

President Trump's Midwest strategy keeps him campaigning in Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio where he has a chance. Republicans don't even bother campaigning in Illinois. The state laws of Illinois forbid cemeteries to be fenced in or walled in because it's considered to be voter suppression.

The Emmy Awards hosted by Jimmy Fallon earned a record-low six million viewers in Hollywood. The stars attended via remote this year. Normally, the Emmy Awards allows TV viewers to see the most number of celebrities in one place without having to donate to the Democratic Party.

The Supreme Court vacancy threw gasoline on the fire that is the 2020 election Monday. All day, Fox News spoke with angry conservatives insisting on Trump's right to nominate someone and CNN interviewed angry liberals vowing to riot if he does. There is nothing wrong with America that the elimination of cable news and the return of the fifteen-minute nightly newscast wouldn't fix.
