Jul 31, 2020
 

Good morning from Washington, where President Trump freaks out progressives by trolling them with a suggestion that elections may have to be postponed amid COVID-19. Could that really happen? Fred Lucas reports. And do lockdowns work? Kevin Dayaratna and Andy Vanderplas examine the data. On the podcast, Heritage Foundation homeland security expert Lora Ries tells what federal law enforcement faces in Portland, Oregon. Plus: a new "Mandate for Leadership" arrives; Planned Parenthood's racist origins; and the coronavirus claims conservative stalwart Herman Cain. Forty-five years ago today, powerful American labor leader James Hoffa is reported missing after failing to return home. His presumed murder remains a mystery.

"I don't want to delay. I want to have the election, but I also don't want to wait three months and then find out that the ballots are all missing and the election doesn't mean anything," says President Trump.

Sanger said all sorts of disturbing things, among them: "We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population."

In truth, the category of "mostly peaceful" is a brand new invention meant to obscure the simple fact that many of our cultural elites are fine with violence so long as those who engage in such violence have the proper goals.
