Of course, the exchange between Trump and Fox's John Roberts last night featured Trump declaring the payroll tax would be terminated and paid for with "tremendous growth."

I wasn't in it, thankfully. And I probably would have been okay but rattled if I I was. They just smashed the hell out of the front in a way that made it undrivable, electronics not working, etc.

A plea to people renting U-Hauls: Please do not smash into parked cars. The vehicle you total could belong to a semi-popular newsletter reporter.

New: the USPS has been quietly removing mail sorting machines from distribution facilities, including ones that sort ballots. "I’m not sure you’re going to find an answer for why,” a union official told me, “because we haven’t figured that out either.”

The group outlined in this piece is the larger swath of “volunteer” outside economic advisors, a group that’s now estimated to be 500+, according to sources familiar with it.

In this week's PAY DIRT: the new super PAC backing Kelly Loeffler, which has already spent $1.85M in under 2 weeks, and its links to a mysteriously funded pro-Loeffler dark money group and her campaign's top vendor

The media is conservative. Not ideologically—most journalists believe science/data—but to compensate for perceived bias. When Rep. Tlaib said "impeach the motherfucker" it was 3-day Decorum Violation news. When a white QAnon Republican rep in GA calls Pelosi a "bitch," nothing

If Trump 2020 is "Biden won't lower cap gains and Kamala is a cop" then pack it up folks

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis, like Kamala Harris, was born in the U.S. to immigrant parents. Dukakis’ opponents never questioned his eligibility — no one did. I wonder what’s different about Kamala Harris?

GOP-backed QAnon House candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene is also a 9/11 conspiracy theorist. In previously unreported remarks, Greene claimed that "it's odd there's never any evidence shown for a plane in the Pentagon." (In reality, there is evidence.)

Curtis, which appointee's life was ruined? The one who spread Pizzagate, the one who said "the black race" had "lax morals, or the #3 Pentagon pick who said Obama was a Muslim terrorist. You really tell on yourself and Media Research Center here.

No, it doesn't depend. The legislative history of the 14th Amendment is crystal clear: Anyone born on American soil, except to a visiting diplomat or an invading military force, is an American citizen. There's not a single judge in America that accepts your fringe interpretation.

Another thing from that Fox Business interview: President Trump talks about cutting capital gains taxes from 21% to 15%. That might actually mean corporate taxes?

There's something particularly insidious about this "I think Harris should answer," as it implies that the "open question" is based on Harris's failure to disclose something, rather than a debunked fringe reading of constitutional law.
