1-Trump’s ex-campaign manager Brad Parscale detained after threatening to harm himself: report
President Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale was taken to a Florida hospital on Sunday by police after a brief but tense stand-off in which he barricaded himself in his home with firearms and threatened to harm himself.
Ft. Lauderdale police said they were dispatched to Parscale’s house after his wife, Candice, called them saying she was worried her husband was suicidal and had firearms in the home, according police.
Parscale did not threaten police and willingly went with law enforcement under Florida’s Baker Act – a law that allows police to detain a person who they believe is a threat to themselves or others. Parscale was taken to a local hospital.
Parscale’s wife had called police to their home after her husband showed signs of emotional distress, according to Trantalis. She claimed he had weapons in the house that he had threatened to use.
DML: Parscale was replaced more than a month ago after President Trump didn’t like how poll were reflecting his chances of winning. Parscale was also accused of being aloof and full of himself by staffers, often taking calls while at his pool. Either way, obviously the guy is having a rough time. Instead of supporting him or saying nothing, look what a liberal hack wrote on Twitter:
Just two days you were “extremely happy”
Now you’re in a mental ward.
You have spent years sending out horrific lies about people and destroying lives.
I have zero sympathy for you.
The monsters are real.
And I hope every night is a horror. https://t.co/jNzG8ZG4LC

Meanwhile, conservative Trump supporter and A-list actor James Woods, put out a far nicer tweet.
Just giving support is the best thing any of us can do. Simply considering suicide is such a terrible thing. A person has to be suffering greatly to be in the frame of mind even to contemplate it. Let’s let Brad Parscale know that we care. https://t.co/htker6JVUO

2-Trump responds to hit piece in The NY Times over his alleged failure to pay taxes.
The NY Times wrote the following on Twitter: “The Times has obtained tax-return data for President Trump extending over more than two decades. It shows his finances under stress, beset by losses that he aggressively employs to avoid paying taxes and hundreds of millions in debt coming due.

In a second tweet, The Times writes: President Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016, and nothing in 10 of the prior 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.

Trump responded with two words: “Fake News”
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 28, 2020
The story is the number one trending item on Twitter, with the hashtag “Fake News”
DML: As of 8am, as I write this post, Fox News has removed any mention of the article from The NY Times on its website. Clearly, the strategy from the Trump team is to not respond in full to the accusations from The Times. Having read the article myself from top to bottom, which took 45-minutes it was so long, it’s a whole lot of nothing. In the end it comes out to one thing…. Trump has great tax attorneys and CPAs working on his taxes, taking advantage of every nuance available to pay as little taxes as possible without breaking the law.
2-Project Veritas Exposes Ilhan Omar Allies in Alleged Ballot Harvesting Operation in Minnesota
Project Veritas has released the results of an investigation into alleged ballot harvesting by supporters of Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, a key swing state in the 2020 presidential election.
Video footage captured by Project Veritas shows an operative, Liban Mohamed, bragging about collecting hundreds of ballots.
The video also includes testimony from a whistleblower, Omar Jamal, who called Rep. Omar’s alleged ballot harvesting an “open secret” and also discussed an alleged cash-for-votes scheme organized by staffers of Rep. Omar.
“She [Ilhan Omar] will do anything that she can do to get elected and she [Ilhan Omar] has hundreds of people on the streets doing that,” said Jamal.
DML: Her supporters are just as dirty as she is. I would love to see the US attorney’s office do a full investigation on everything she’s done. They will find mounds of wrongdoing, and therefore be able to rescind her citizenship and send her back to Somalia.
3-Chicago violence: Girl, 5, stabbed to death in another bloody weekend
A 5-year-old girl was stabbed to death Saturday morning in Chicago during another bloody weekend in the city that also resulted in at least 49 people being shot, including seven fatally, reports say.
The girl, identified as Serenity Arrington, suffered multiple stab wounds and died shortly after being rushed to a local hospital, according to CBS Chicago. Neighbors in East Garfield Park tried to assist the girl, while her mother, 27-year-old Simone Austin, was charged in her death with first-degree murder, the report added. The motive for the attack was not immediately clear.
Police also have launched a homicide investigation after the body of a woman with multiple stab wounds to her face and neck was retrieved Sunday morning from the Chicago River, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. That woman appeared to be in her mid 20s.

DML: “The motive for the attack was not immediately clear,” they say. Allow me to take bets. (1) Mother was on crack. (2) Mother was late for a date with a guy she probably met the night before. (3) Mother had better plans like rioting against White people and police. In the end, be it 1, 2, or 3, one thing is for sure… Black Lives Don’t Matter To Other Blacks in Chicago.
4-Armed Louisville man threated to shoot police in Facebook live video: Justice Dept.
A previously convicted Kentucky man faces federal charges after he allegedly posted a video to Facebook Live holding a gun and saying he would shoot Lousiville police officers if someone paid him $30,000, officials recently announced.
Cortez Lamont Edwards, 29, on Wednesday posted the video, in which he showed the Louisville Metro Police Department responding to an unspecified crime scene in front of his home.
Edwards, who was livestreaming the video, was seen with an “AR variant pistol including a non-extendible support brace with an extended magazine” during the clip, in which he also said “he is requesting being paid $30,000.00 to shoot Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) officers on scene,” according to a Sunday press release by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Kentucky.
DML: I could write something negative like, “another POS who commits crime and cries social injustice.” Or I could say something like, “This is the sort of black criminal the NFL celebrates by taking a knee.” But I will take the Michelle Obama suggestion of going high when they go low. How’s this for positive, “One less Joe Biden voter is on the streets today.”
5-Maryland man sentenced to year in jail after hosting multiple parties in defiance of coronavirus rules
A Maryland man who defied the state’s coronavirus emergency order and hosted dozens of guests at house parties in March has been sentenced to a year in jail, authorities said.
Shawn Marshall Myers, 42, on Friday was convicted on two counts of failure to comply with an emergency order, the Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office said.
Myers was caught throwing multiple parties in March after Gov. Larry Hogan issued orders against gatherings of more than 10 people to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
DML: Just as a reminder, Hogan is a registered Republican but he’s anti-Trump. Meanwhile, to think this man is going to spend one year in jail over ignoring COVID-19 mandates while punks in Baltimore gather to riot, loot, and cause chaos without any punishment is sickening.
MY PARTING WORDS: I celebrate the Trump presidency and push for his reelection for many reasons. One, I love the idea of a SCOTUS being loaded with conservatives, two, I think this president has done a fairly good job considering all the push back he gets from his own party (see Hogan), the courts, Democrats and the media. Imagine what could be if they’d get off Trump’s case. Why not support the man! And then of course I have my own personal reasons why I want to see Trump win.
