Biden campaign artwork crops up in Yorkville field


This is a good thing!

Iowa Farm Unveils 30-Acre Joe Biden Crop Art Sign

The largest Joe Biden sign in the country was unveiled this weekend in Tama County, Iowa.

A 30-acre piece of ‘crop-art’ on Saturday was completed on a family-owned plot of land in Clutier, Iowa after an aerial field artist and dozens of local volunteers labored for less than a week. The sign, which features the candidate’s ‘Build Back Better’ slogan, a wind turbine, a sun and a barn featuring his name, is meant to signal Biden’s successful campaign reach into rural America.

Republicans for Rule of Law are running an

ad in Iowa pointing out Senator Grassley’s hypocrisy on filling the SC seat and telling viewers to call him.

It’s an excellent ad. With a little modification it can be used against him in 2022.

Katie Porter 'Strongly' Disagrees With Dianne Feinstein About The Coney Barrett Hearing

Many progressives were dismayed this week upon hearing Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) heap praise on this week’s confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, calling them “one of the best set of hearings that I’ve participated in.”

The comments from the 87-year-old Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee ― accompanied by her embrace with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) afterward ― symbolized to progressives the party’s inability to play hardball on court nominations and sparked an outcry among some groups who called for her removal from the panel.

“She has undercut Democrats’ position at every step of this process, from undermining calls for filibuster and Court reform straight through to thanking Republicans for the most egregious partisan power grab in the modern history of the Supreme Court,” said Brian Fallon, founder and executive director of Demand Justice, a progressive judicial advocacy group.

Ari Berman's tweet to Moscow Mitch about court packing...

You stole a Supreme Court seat, confirmed 218 Trump judges after blocking 110 Obama nominees & now rushing to confirm Amy Coney Barrett 20 days before Nov 3 when over 14 million people have already voted. That's definition of court-packing

President Donald Trump arrives in Des Moines to rally with a boisterous crowd

from the Des Moines Register

President Donald Trump arrived to a boisterous crowd gathered outside the Des Moines International Airport Wednesday he warps up a three-day campaign tour of battleground states — his first campaign events since testing positive for the coronavirus earlier this month.

Attendees arrived in cars bedecked with "Make America Great Again" flags, and they sported "Trump Pence 2020" campaign gear as they trekked across the airport's parking lots and open fields to reach the airport hangar where Trump was set to speak.

"Eye of the Tiger" played over the loudspeakers as Air Force One rolled up to the rally site and the crowd of onlookers cheered and snapped photos.

Trump held up a trademark “Make America Great Again” hat, and joked that his aides advised he might need to wear it because of the wind. “They said, ‘Sir, it is so windy out there.’ ‘I said, well, my hair’s very powerful, it’s very strong.’”

Trump barely leads Biden in Iowa.

Morning Joe had Jim Oberweis on this morning

He’s running against Lauren Underwood in IL-14. He lied like trump about several things including Pelosi (adding non germane items to stimulus that he couldn’t name), Biden (“nobody likes Biden”, they’re voting against trump), and Underwood supports rioting (a very weak “I’m not sure she said that” from Mika). Of course he mentioned the “Democrat” Party.

I missed the lead in to his segment. Does anyone know why he was on?

I marked the box for trump when filling out

my Mom’s absentee ballot yesterday. We had to go to the election office to turn in the spoiled ballot and she voted in person - for Biden and all Dems.

It gives my mom a good story to tell about how her younger daughter marked her ballot for trump. I’m told she tells it with great glee.
