Keep those thoughts in mind for both the featured focus headline topic, and the leading into that follows.
But first, in an election related item, this email from Democratic Socialist friend and supporter, Representative Ro Khanna (CA-D), makes it clear that a far-left Democrat stands by the reliability of Tony Bobulinski’s word.
— John Roberts (@johnrobertsFox) October 30, 2020
According to right-of-center HotAir, citing leftist billionaire funded George Soros’ OpenSecrets, “Khanna’s done pretty well with the Bobulinski family, as one might expect from people doing business with the Bidens. Tony himself has four maxed-out contributions to Khanna in the 2014 and 2016 election cycles, both in the primary and general-election phases of those campaigns. It looks like Bobulinski got a few of his family members to kick in more full-max contributions to Khanna in the past too, as the letter indicates. It’s worth noting too that Bobulinski has no donations listed to any Republicans at all, at any time.”
Bobulinski’s allegations and the related documents that the nation’s oldest and fourth largest newspaper – the New York Post revealed – have been confirmed by Sinclair News’ James Rosen to be the subject of an open FBI criminal investigation.
EXCLUSIVE: A @TheJusticeDept official confirms that in 2019, the @FBI opened up a criminal investigation into “Hunter Biden and his associates,” focused on allegations of money-laundering, and that it remains open and active today. More very soon on your @WeAreSinclair stations.

Possible charges, per various sources, could include tax evasion, FARA violations, money laundering, and more. It involves corroborated evidence which allegedly points to former VP Biden as the ‘chairman’ and big guy.

The fact that much of the media dismisses or ignores the growing evidence of purported illegalities and corruption that lead back to VP Biden’s ‘family business of influence peddling’ with Communist China, Russia and other nations is stunning.
But not all in media are ignoring the stunning issue.
Related, award-winning progressive reporter Glen Greenwald – co-founder of the left-of-center Intercept was apparently ousted from his own publication by a group of fellow editors who were in the tank for Obama Administration era VP Joe Biden. Says Greenwald, his fellow progressives would not allow him to publish an article that had critical information and analysis about the Democratic nominee.
Greenwald argued last night on Tucker Carlson’s program, the most watched in recent weeks on cable TV, that a combination of the big tech, big media, “deep state” spy agencies, and other insiders were colluding to silence as much as possible information that undermines the carefully crafted narrative of Biden as a nice guy that can be trusted. Greenwald said it more forcefully.
As MHProNews has been reporting for several years, it is one more piece of evidence from across the left-right divide that “the rigged system” is a nexus of multinational businesses, leftist billionaires, many in media and big tech who would rather undermine a pro-American worker president than they are to expose who has rigged the system and how.
That’s a reasonable tee up to this evening’s featured focus. The business nightly featured focus follows the quotable quotes, left-right headlines, and 2 of our 3 market summary graphics. The manufactured home equities connected results at the closing bell follows the featured focus and related/recent reports.

Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet
“It shocks the conscience that more Americans today believe the U.S. President is a bigger threat to world peace than the most brutal dictators in the world, and that four-in-ten Americans believe that their country is a ‘racist’ nation,” said Marion Smith, Executive Director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. “This represents a total failure of our education system, not just in schools but also a basic dishonesty in our media and popular culture. When one-in-four Americans want to eliminate capitalism and embrace socialism, we know that we have failed to educate about the historical and moral failings of these ideologies.”
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC) released on 10.30.2020 its fifth Annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism, Communism, and Collectivism.
“This year’s study showed increased favorability of the term ‘socialism’ (49%) among Gen Z compared to 2019 (40%). Opinions of capitalism declined slightly from 2019 to 2020 among all Americans (58% to 55%), with Gen Z (ages 16-23) slightly up (49% to 52%) and Millennials (ages 24-39) down (50% to 43%). 35% of Millennials and 31% of Gen Z support the gradual elimination of the capitalist system in favor of a more socialist system,” said VOC’s statement.
The VOC/YouGov survey “also showed growing concern for Donald Trump as president, especially among younger generations of Americans, with 34% of Gen Z and 35% of Millennials seeing him as the greatest threat to world peace, up 8% and 7% from 2019, respectively. This sentiment held true regarding his handling of the pandemic as well, with 39% of Gen Z and 32% of Millennials believing Trump is more responsible for COVID-19 becoming a pandemic than Xi Jinping of China. Opinions of America’s inequality grew markedly from 2019 with 68% of Americans thinking that America’s highest earners don’t pay their fair share. Among these Americans, 57% of Gen Z and 60% of Millennials favor a complete change of our economic system away from capitalism — a 14% and 8% increase from 2019, respectively.”
- 40% of Americans have a favorable view of socialism, up from 36% in 2019. Socialist sentiment is increasing among younger generations with Gen Z’s favorability at 49%, up from 40% in 2019.
- Over a quarter of Americans (26%) support the gradual elimination of the capitalist system in favor of a more socialist system with a surge in support among younger generations (31% of Gen Z and 35% of Millennials).
- 18% of Gen Z and 13% of Millennials think communism is a fairer system than capitalism and deserves consideration in America.
- 30% of Gen Z has a favorable view of Marxism, up 6% from 2019, compared to 27% of Millennials, down 9% from 2019.
- Over one-third of Americans (39%) are likely to support a member of the Democratic Socialist party for office with greater support among younger generations (51% of Gen Z and 44% of Millennials). 16% of Gen Z and Millennials are likely to support a member of the Communist party for office.
- 63% of Gen Z and Millennials (compared to 95% of the Silent Generation), believe the Declaration of Independence better guarantees freedom and inequality over the Communist Manifesto, a 6% increase for Millennials from 2019.
- One-third of Americans (33%) believe Donald Trump is the biggest threat to world peace over Xi Jinping, Kim Jong-un, Nicolás Maduro, and Vladimir Putin, a 6% increase from 2019.
- 32% of Americans think that Donald Trump is responsible for the deaths of more people than Kim Jong-un.
- Nearly two-thirds (64%) of Americans say they are unaware that the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for more deaths than Nazi Germany.
- 47% of Americans believe Xi Jinping of China is more responsible for COVID-19 becoming a pandemic than Donald Trump; however, a higher proportion of Gen Z believes that Donald Trump is more responsible (39%).
- Over a quarter (26%) of Americans think climate change is the number one threat to national security over the rise of the People’s Republic of China or Russian expansionism. The greatest concern for climate change is seen among younger generations (38% of Gen Z and 30% of Millennials).
- Over half of Gen Z (51%) think that America is a racist nation with a long history of discrimination.
- Only 44% of Gen Z thinks that the American flag most accurately represents freedom.
- Americans increasingly distrust the government to take care of their interests, with 87% saying they trust themselves over the government and their community (a 7% increase from 2019). This is especially the case in younger generations, with only 6% of Gen Z and 5% of Millennials trusting the government to take care of their interests, down 8% and 11% from 2019, respectively.
- 12% of Gen Z and 10% of Millennials think society would be better off if all private property was abolished and held by the government.
- 53% of Americans think a good government should favor the freedom of its citizens over the safety of its citizens.
VOC is sadly quite right about the problems of media and educational failure. With some 92 percent of coverage about President Trump being negative, per the Media Research Center (MRC) is it any surprise that so many think ill of him, even in comparison to communists?
