Trump is unlikely to gain 3 battleground states. The fake Hunter computer October surprise flopped. Something big has to appear.
A war, or at least a threat of war, is on the cards. It saved quite a number of politicians from electoral defeat.

Trump projecting in 1012:

Trump has been quite obsessed with the idea.

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Sorry another disillusioned American:
Power must be shared and made more accountable. Michael Lind says: "A country run by an aristocracy or an oligarchy is a democracy in name only."
It was never a democracy which is a major problem and always will be. In Capitalistic state democracy is an abomination and the last thing it wants as it is not controllable.

Johnson must be dreading a Biden win:

‘Biden gets Ireland’: why Joe in the Oval Office would thrill Joe in Mayo
The would-be president is proud of his heritage. And many in Ireland see in him a chance for change on issues like Brexit

It was a telling line that almost got drowned out in the acrimony of the first US presidential debate. Donald Trump, Joe Biden said, belonged to a caste of aloof plutocrats. “They look down their nose on people like Irish Catholics and like me.”

It was an appeal to the middle-class and blue-collar voters who will decide next month’s election – and a statement of the value Biden places on his Irish heritage.

With polls giving the Democrat a wide lead there has been much attention on how his age (77), personal views and political alliances might shape his administration and draw a line under the Trump era.

Biden opposed Brexit and has warned Downing Street that if it undermines the Good Friday agreement, it can kiss goodbye to a trade deal with the US – a grim scenario for Boris Johnson.

This is politics, not sentiment. Biden considers Northern Ireland’s peace deal a success of US foreign policy and globalism, which he has long espoused. He sees the EU as a partner for the US. Powerful congressional Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi have bashed Britain’s Brexit policy for similar reasons.

“The actions of the Boris Johnson government, in trying to escape its obligations under the Good Friday agreement ... have awakened and energised many Irish Americans who had previously thought Northern Ireland was on the path to lasting peace,” said Daniel O’Connell, head of the non-partisan Ancient Order of Hibernians in America.

A lively duscussion elsewhere. But I think it was just one Trumpist hanging on to the fictional Hunter laptop. The FBI will reveal all 2 days before election. When it will be too late, this time.

Trump starts to articulate a painful reality: He could lose in 2020
(Really? I've never heard Trump articulate anything.)

There's a guy named Will Robinson who's running for a county position here. So far I've stopped myself from tagging all his signs "Danger!"
