#Biden "has said he wd end the program on his 1st day in office, if elected." Meaning that he believes #asylum  seekers have a right to prompt case hearings - & that whatever US #tax  dollars are needed should be spent to accomplish this goal? #immigration 

"Early findings" show that "most of the 12 schools have had financial dealings w #Huawei ...[which] some U.S. officials say is a threat to #nationalsecurity , & at least 1 had ties directly to the #ChineseCommunistParty ": HT #highered  #China  @Ohiojobswatch 

New #Fed  #BeigeBook  (for October) reports "moderate" growth in US #manufacturing , which also produced the #economy 's "most consistent" #employment  gains. This #resilience  inconceivable w/o #Trump  #China  & other #tariffs : ? #recession  #recovery  #COVID19 

The report "relies heavily on news accounts from the past 4 yrs [&] interviews w/dozens of former U.S. officials, #foreignpolicy  experts & foreign officials." I.e., the #NeverTrumper  #MSM , the #globalist  #Blob , & #freeride-ing , #protectionist  #allies : 🥱

Making News: Back on Wee-Hours NYC Radio Tonight Previewing the Big Debate!

VG from @greg_ip  on #trade , #China , the #WTO , and #Trump /Lighthizer strategy. One of the few #MSM  #journalists  willing to give this approach a fair hearing rather than pounce on every sign that instant perfection hasn't yet been achieved: #globalization 

@anapalacio  (a former #Spain  foreign minister), says US #allies  can convince a #globalist ) Prez#Biden  to "take up the mantle of [world] leadership again" by showing they're willing to share burdens. But why have they taken so long? #foreignpolicy 

ICYMI, my new #RealityChek  post caught #Senate  #Democrats  talking about the need for more grace in American#politics , but acting as if it's only merited when certain political lines are toed: ? #ChuckSchumer  #CoryBooker  #FeinsteinResign  #AmyComeyBarrett

Reportedly, "At least 82 candidates and office holders have been killed since the #Mexico ] electoral season kicked off in September....": ? #NAFTA  #failedstate 

Will someone tell #HillaryClinton  that the #NATO  #allies ' contribution to the post #September11  #Afghanistan  war was - & is bupkis?

Just voted in my municipal #Maryland ) #elections . No one checked any ID. I could have been anyone. #voterfraud 

Only 1 brief mention in this #WaPo  piece that any of these #illegalaliens  have already received final removal orders. In fact, these number 1 million: & #immigration  #mediabias  #deportation  #bordercrisis 

This is such typical #Swamp  chicanery. The US #manufacturing  #reshoring  effort has just begun, and the #Offshore-ing  Lobby is already warning against "overdoing it" @Reuters  words): #healthsecurity  #mfg  #trade  #supplychain 

@carney  Strongly agree. #Pelosi  is the only one standing in the room, she's pointing her finger at #Trump , and this makes him look bad? #TrumpDerangementSyndromeD  #Pelosi MeltdownerangementSyndrome Meltdown?

#Immigrants ' rights" group rejects #Maryland  #taxpayer-funded  grant to provide legal services for immigrants facing #deportation  b/c bar on aiding those w/major criminal convictions wd've eliminated most recipients: #crime  #immigration 

As reported here, US localities being pressed by #illegalimmigrants  to pay (more of) their legal fees: #immigration
