Is it me? or are many missing the point of why Trump really wants to destory Vote-by-Mail? It's not that more Dems will vote by mail than Republicans, it's because Putin and (maybe the Repugs as well?) has the voting machines rigged! If they're not used by the majority of American voters, then hacking them does no good. They can't hack the mail-in-system they were they were able to hack the machines in swing states in 2016, (that many of us on this thread believe they did and got away with!).

Trump's actions are only more evidence that Russia successfully hacked the machines in 2016, an he knew about it!

Again, maybe I and many others are wrong about this, but it should at least be questioned.

R37 I think most of us here at the DL know that's the reason he's trying to dismantle the USPS. Since it's never been "proven" that the 2016 election was hacked, a lot of other people aren't thinking in that direction (for whatever reasons).

by Anonymousreply 4508/20/2020

Plausible, R37.

I think the prevailing theory, however, is that disrupting the mail creates a reasonable doubt which throws everything out of whack and ties things up in court like Bush v. Gore in 2000. From there they wield the power of incumbency.

It sounds reassuring to argue that he's out January 20th regardless, but they are not following the rules anywhere else so they don't think they will have to then either. This is why Barr is so dangerous.

Hannity chose this life, so no one felt sorry for him, but the stress took its toll. “Hannity would tell you, off-off-off the record, that Trump is a batshit crazy person,” one of his associates said. Another friend concurred: “Hannity has said to me more than once, ‘he’s crazy.’”

...

In the Trump age, left-wing blogs filled up with stories about families torn apart by a loved one’s Hannity addiction. I heard those stories from Fox staffers too: Some of their relatives resented what they did for a living. They made excuses, mumbling that they were simply giving the people what they wanted. “I feel like Fox is being held hostage by its audience,” a veteran staffer said. “The audience has been RADICALIZED,” a longtime commentator texted me, in all caps, as he scrolled through his Twitter feed after a live shot on the daytime show America’s Newsroom. The amount of vitriol shocked him. Any break from Trump was penalized. Nuanced debates about the role of government and taxation and immigration were distilled to a single question: Were you with Trump or against him?

...

Hannity deserved a big share of the blame for this state of affairs. But despite that, and despite the fact that he was rarely at headquarters, Hannity was well-liked around Fox. Colleagues described him as a big-hearted family guy. He paid bonuses to his staff out of his own deep pockets. He ordered meals and care packages to the homes of colleagues who lost loved ones. He even offered to hire a private investigator when an acquaintance died in a mysterious crash. When the network descended on New Hampshire for primary election coverage, Hannity footed the bill for the open bar. A member of Sean’s production crew, a Democrat, told me, “I want to fucking hate him so bad. But he’s so nice to me.”

...

The contrast between Fox’s public face and the private “resistance” has existed ever since Trump upended the presidential race five years ago. It’s the reason why I decided to write a book about the network and its unprecedented alliance with the White House. In all I spoke with more than 140 staffers at Fox, plus 180 former staffers and others with direct ties to the network. Their frustration was palpable. Staffers described a TV network that had gone off the rails. Some even said the place that they worked, that they cashed paychecks from, had become dangerous to democracy. They felt like the news division had been squeezed out in favor of pro-Trump blowhards.

Most of the insiders acknowledged that Fox News was always, on one level, a political project, but many said they were shocked by how thoroughly Fox and the GOP had been merged by Trump, Hannity, and a handful of other power players.

“We surrendered,” one anchor said with remorse in his voice. “We just surrendered.”

A lot of people I spoke to were desperate to talk. Others were terrified. Ailes made everyone paranoid and punished those he suspected of leaking. That same fear of retribution was still very real in the post-Ailes years. Employees suspected their work phones were tapped and assumed their emails were monitored by management. I cannot overstate the level of paranoia among Fox employees.

by Anonymousreply 7308/21/2020

For R71. Five provocative nuggets from the report:

1. Trump to Putin in 2007: “I’m a big fan of yours.” Trump sent a fan letter to Putin after Vlad was named Time’s Man of the Year.

2. “A GIFT FROM PUTIN!” In 2013, Putin sent a “Fedoskino-style lacquer box,” a traditional Russian gift to Donald through Russian pop star Emin Agalarov, who had been in contact with Don Jr. Junior informed his father by printing out the email and writing (in caps) “YOU ARE BEING SENT A GIFT FROM PUTIN!”

3. Suggestions of a 1996 affair — and a possible kompromat effort. The report includes an allegation that Trump may have begun a brief relationship with a former Miss Moscow in 1996, while he was still married to Marla Maples.

4. Cohen said Trump visited a club featuring a bizarre “sex act.” Trump, Cohen and a few others attended a Las Vegas club that featured a blind man singing a patriotic song while a large woman in a thong bikini performed sex acts on him.

5. Bannon’s wry comment about Donald Trump Jr. and Breitbart. Bannon once said, “I’d describe Don R., who I think very highly of, as a guy who believes everything on Breitbart is true.”

by Anonymousreply 7808/21/2020

R56 Here. Back with my thoughts of extreme cynicism.

I think the Dems did a great job putting the convention together. I thought Biden's speech was inspiring and authentic. If given the opportunity, he will fill his cabinet positions with - ..... - wait for it - ..... - ALL THE BEST PEOPLE. But unlike Trump, Biden's people will be people who have the necessary experience, vision, and QUALIFICATIONS for EACH SPECIFIC task designated. People we can rely on to speak honestly, candidly, without fear. I suspect his top 5 Cabinet members will all be qualified to fill in as POTUS on Short Notice should any (further?) horrible disaster make it necessary.

Now here comes the cynicism: Will it matter? By November, will this election even be relevant? (if it happens at all).

Here's my dumb analogy: Imagine two 3rd-graders...uh...let's name them B and T...and they're competing for a prize. That prize is a large, beautiful chocolate cake. The most beautiful chocolate cake you've ever seen! The contest is played, and B wins fair and square. B's plan is to cut and divide the cake in as many small pieces possible, so he can be generous and pass them out to as many classmates as possible. But just as B is about to slice the first piece, the infuriated T jumps in front of B, grabs a large portion of the cake for himself, then destroys the rest so that nobody else can share!

That's what Trump is gonna do to this country. He knows he's gonna lose. Even Putin can't get him out of this one. He's gonna throw an enormous temper tantrum, and literally destroy anything and everything he can get his fat orange hands on. "If I can't run this country, no one can!".

Fuck!, beginning November 3rd, he's got 75 days to do it! And we all know about his enablers, (the worst and most dangerous being Bill Barr!). The sycophants and bottom-feeders who will stand aside and watch him do it.

But ...uh...what about the instigators? The true architects of his evil policies? (I've heard little or no discussion of these cretins). Steve Bannon-protege- Jew-Nazi Stephen Miller, and his equally sociopathic bride, Katie... both of whom we now have evidence deliberately designed the immigration "kids-in-cages" policy to be as cruel and inhumane as possible! ........ and Jared, who I believe we have evidence was more than complicit in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. If you read some of Bannon's essays that predate 2016, he wanted a race war, he called for it! What's been happening in Portland is no accident, or part of a series of random events. These instigators are stocked with shopping bags containing hammers, They're waiting and wanting to put them in Trump's hands! "Mr. Trump, the nuclear codes?? I have them right here... - (pointing) - There's the button!" ...

Consider all the shit we know about:

*Disabling the Post Office;

*Bounties on the heads of our soldiers in Afghanistan.

What don't we yet know about??? ..... We know Trump's Administration has GUTTED our Intelligence Agencies, and so much more!

Yet they're still in the White House! And will be allowed to stay until January 20th? Really???

Yes, I'm an alarmist! Every single fucking alarm should be on full blast!! Code Triple Red!!! With Trump and his cronies in power until 1/20/2021, perhaps there will be No Country for Old Man Biden to POTUS over!

But after Christie was kicked off the transition team, Judge Nap went on TV to defend the move and to imply that there was something wrong about Christie's prosecution of Charlie Kushner. The only one who though there was a problem with the prosecution was Jared, who thought that the whole blackmail scheme should have been presented to a Rabbi for judgement. Some time after that, Judge Nap turned on Trump and never looked back.

There's something in Bill Barr's background, undisclosed to the public, that may be sinister or nefarious. It has to be more than the pay for him to have pursued the AG job. He was already wealthy and did the job during the last period of the G.H.W. Bush administration whereby he had a big role in getting certain Republican former Executive Branch officials off the hook. I don't buy Barr's motive is just about an ideology favoring an autocratic President. Something appears to suggest there are sources, domestic and/or foreign, that Barr is indebted to in some way, and.he has an obligation to deliver in their behalf. One day. It will get revealed, perhaps.

by Anonymousreply 11808/22/2020

Never forget, r118, that Barr's father was the headmaster of Dalton School in NYC. One day, out of the blue, he hired a young man who was new to town to be a teacher there. This young man didn’t have a penny in his pocket. This young man did not have a teaching certificate. This young man did not have a college degree. This young man wasn’t qualified to be a teacher in any conceivable way. This young man was named Jeffrey Epstein.

[quote]Don gave one speech at a single We Build the Wall event over a year ago with a group of angel moms and besides that, has no involvement with their organization," Amanda Miller, a spokesperson for Trump Jr., told Insider. "He never gave them permission to use him as a testimonial on their website and was unaware they included him as one until today's media reports about it. His previous praise of the group was based on what he was led to believe about their supposed intention to help build the wall on our southern border and if he and others were deceived, the group deserves to be held accountable for their actions."

According to Politico, Wolff hinted that clues of the lover's identity could be found in his book.

They didn't create Covid-19, but are taking full advantage! They WANT Americans to die. How better to turn a Democracy into an Autocracy. It's easiest to control the population when they are weak, sick, and dying. It's in the playbook! mericans to die. Why?

(from an earlier thread):

It must be said: Vladimir Putin, like Bin Laden before him, has to be ecstatic about how successful his plan was. Beyond his wildest dreams and expectations. His ultimate goal was to weaken and isolate the United States. It was to weaken and disrupt our relationships with our NATO allies, and to be a disruptive presence across the world. And Donald Trump, probably for the first time in his life, has exceeded all expectations. We are isolated and weak. Our economy is in the shitter, and the unemployment numbers will mirror, if not surpass the Great Depression. Cities and states will not be able to pay workers because they will have almost no tax revenue coming in, and of course those massive tax cuts will make it tens time worse and do it a lot sooner. No tax revenue, massive unemployment, important government positions left unfilled at Defense, State, Homeland Security, and the FDA, CDC, etc., etc., etc. He has no competent advisers on the White House staff, he has politicized the Department of Justice and the CIA so they're ineffective, and the Treasury department operates like some sports franchise selling shit with his name on it. Putin has to be impressed with how quickly Trump achieved his goals. In four short years he has the Courts, the military, the economy, everything all fucked up. Truly. And you know what? Because this is Donald John Trump were talkin about, it can always get worse. We know we're voting Blue, but we'd be wrong to think we can let Trump do all the work for the Dems.

Today will be my final day on Twitter for a little while so that I can focus on some work related things. I hope before my absence I can say a few things that are clear and important to me:

1) Democracy is only as strong as those who hold it to account. I’m old enough to remember a world in which we weren’t a frog in boiling water, accepting every insane lie with a shrug and a roll of the eyes. Do not let the abnormal become normal.

2) At a time in which we are all essentially stuck at home with nowhere to go, five minutes to register to vote is not only easier than its ever been, but basically inexcusable to not allot the time to do if you are remotely concerned about the state of this troubled nation.

3) Populism, Nationalism, & (let’s call it what it is), fascism have never led to any positive outcome for those who allowed it to fester unchecked. I was blessed enough to have two Grandparents who explained to me the life and death consequences of a nation blind to its effects.

4) 3 & a half years ago, there was no context for your choices. Now, it is abundantly clear. If you are supporting a man who also has a rabid following of white Supremacists, Neo-Nazis & racists, your choice is to align with hate. There are no more excuses. It is what it is.

5) To do nothing or choose a 3rd option in a Nation on the brink of no return, is in essence to feel privileged enough to allow the climate to crumble, kids to be locked in cages & health care to be ripped away from millions. Policy won’t matter if we don’t have a Democracy.

6) For once don’t have a short term memory America. 2016 showed us what the next few months will look like. Accusations that lead to nowhere, lies that are shiny objects & deceit to make a decent man & his family look indecent. It worked once & if we let it, will work again.

7) Numbers don’t lie. 175,000 Americans aren’t dead because they had to be. They’re dead because of inaction. Our Western allies all took reasonable measures to stop the spread. We fought about masks for 5 months. That’s not leadership. It’s ineptitude & political expediency.

8) Know a demagogue when you see one. A man who constantly has to scream about stoping ballots from being mailed, (while mailing in ballots himself), threatening to send law enforcement to the polls, & calling drop off boxes into question does not believe in fair elections.

9) Ask simple questions. How many people in an administration must be indicted with crimes before you are willing to open your eyes to the fact that this is the most corrupt administration in modern history?

10) Fight. Scream. Vote. Every day from now until Election Day will be breathlessly hard. Don’t get complacent. Don’t get despondent. Get active. Make calls. Write letters. Rise up. We are all living through history. Find your place in it.

History has its eyes on you. See you all soon. Be well.

[bold]Trump Has Now Moved $2.3 Million Of Campaign-Donor Money Into His Private Business[/bold]

Donald Trump continued to shift money from his donors to his business last month, as his reelection campaign paid his private companies for rent, food, lodging and other expenses, according to a review of the latest Federal Election Commission filings. The richest president in American history, who has yet to donate to his 2020 campaign, has now moved $2.3 million of contributions from other people into his private companies.

The most recent expenses look familiar. The president accepted $38,000 in rent last month through Trump Tower Commercial LLC, the entity that owns his Fifth Avenue skyscraper. Since Trump took office, his campaign has paid that company $1.5 million, more than any other property in the Trump empire, according to an analysis of federal filings. The Republican National Committee also coordinated with the campaign to pay Trump Tower Commercial LLC an additional $225,000.

Trump got another $8,000 in July via the Trump Corporation, a management company that he owns. The precise reason for those payments is unclear. Campaign filings describe the rationale as “legal & IT consulting” but it’s still a mystery why Trump’s management company is providing such services. The Trump Corporation has now taken in $281,000 from the campaign since the president entered the Oval Office.

More money went to Trump Restaurants LLC, another company the president owns outright. Those payments may be connected to a kiosk in the basement of Trump Tower that sells campaign memorabilia. It’s hard to imagine that the kiosk has been doing much business amid the coronavirus crisis, but the campaign has continued to pay its rent, $3,000 per month. Trump Restaurants LLC has gotten $117,000 since its owner became president.

Trump Hotel Collection, in which Trump also owns a 100% interest, received another $1,000 in July. The campaign has paid Trump’s hotel properties $226,000 since Inauguration Day, according to the analysis of federal filings.

Not every company cashed in last month. Forbes found no payments to Mar-a-Lago, the president’s golf clubs, or Trump Plaza LLC—an entity that controls property on Third Avenue in Manhattan and previously collected regular rent from the reelection effort.

Trump’s machinations have been going on for years now. Forbes first reported on money moving from his reelection campaign to his business in 2018. The amount has more than doubled since then.

The Trump Organization did not respond to a request for comment. A representative for the Trump campaign ignored a series of questions about the payments and instead issued a broad statement. “The campaign complies with all campaign finance laws and FEC regulations,” the statement said. “The campaign pays fair market value under negotiated rental agreements and other service agreements in compliance with the law. The campaign works closely with campaign counsel to ensure strict compliance in this regard.”

In addition to the campaign, the Republican National Committee and the president’s joint-fundraising committees have also paid millions of dollars to Trump’s businesses. Last month, Forbes reported on $4.7 million of payments from those entities since Trump took office. The president’s total haul—from his campaign, party and joint fundraising committees—now stands at more than $6.9 million.

Not a meaningless sum, even for a billionaire.

The contempt resolution against Pompeo, President Donald Trump’s second secretary of State, is being drafted in response to the Cabinet official’s “ongoing refusal to comply” with a congressional subpoena and “his transparently political misuse of Department resources."

The Democrats plan to remove the Hyde amendment, which bans federal dollars from paying for abortion. This couldn't wait until after the election?

There were pro-life conservatives who were prepared to vote for Biden because Trump sucks (we know this because they were part of that RVAT video project), and because the Supreme Court decisions this past year disabused them of the notion that Roe was going to be overturned. But now their vote for Biden is going to guarantee more abortions, so that voting cohort is going to have to rethink their position. Not only does Trump get a second chance to win over those voters, it supports the Republican position that Biden is going to bend over for progressives. This is a huge gift to Trump.

I'm not sure what speech the posters above watched. He said nothing of substance. Condemn the violence, call out trump (how brave!) and offered zero substance on how to deal with the issues facing the city. He said the national guard isn't needed, yet he has done zero to stop the chaos. For the last two weekends the police have stood by and watched the alt-right protestors have their way. In the same press conference as Wheeler, the police chief was asked why the police didn't slash tires of the trump train participants as they have been other protestors. His response was that option is not always feasible.

The Portland police have been exposed as having communicated and coordinated with the proud boys/patriot prayer groups at past protests, so to expect any action to be taken against them (or the idiots on the left who are setting things on fire every night) is an exercise in futility.

Of course the Russians hacked the vote in 2016. I was in Michigan. I knew instantly that something fishy happened. They're very smart about how they do it. It only takes a few votes per precinct. And the switch doesn't necessarily go to Trump. It can go to Jill Stein or some guy named Johnson. Now there is no doubt Trump was helped by Comey, and the race tightened up in October. But Hillary was still going to win and those fuckers stole the election. She is the duly elected legitimate POTUS. ( remember that when reading stupid articles about how Americans will "never vote for a woman." We did!)Anyone who doubts this is still a believer in Santa. Ask yourself: Why would Putin set up Troll farms, involve his GRU agents, send people here in 2015 to scope out the election operations and invest millions in social media, have his people working with Cambridge Analytica, Wiki Leaks, in a comprehensive effort to help Trump, flooding the NRA with $40 Million, spreading millions around to McConnell's super pacs and Ryan's? They weren't subtle. Putin knows better than most how the intel community operates. He knew we would discover the finger prints. Why go to all that effort if you weren't going to guarantee the outcome?

It has already been established that they got into the voting rolls in all 50 states. First they said 21, then they said no, it's more, it's 37, and within the past few months they have acknowledged all 50 states were compromised....and then they add the disclaimer that " there is no evidence that this affected the outcome...." LOL! Right. No, there is no "evidence." It evaporates. No trail, no paper ballots, nothing. Just a lot of circumstantial facts. Putin wanted Trump to be President. Putin caused "X" number of things to happen. Putin had his oligarchs invest millions, and used his own intel agents, many of whom have now been named and indicted. And Trump became President. Duuh!

[quote]With unprecedented numbers of Americans starting to cast early votes in the presidential election come mid-September, many eyes are on what Attorney General William Barr and his colleagues in the Justice Department will do. If they abide by a longstanding Justice Department rule of forbearance — sometimes called the 60 or 90-day rule — they will refrain from public indictments or other overt disclosures in cases that could affect the election. Prosecutors would, instead, conscientiously defer such actions until after the public votes. But that does not appear to be where Barr is headed. The attorney general has recently made statements that lay the groundwork for inappropriately deploying the Justice Department to damage the Democratic candidate for president, Joe Biden in the coming weeks. It’s by all appearances a highly orchestrated plan.

Describing Trump’s unexpected November 2019 visit to Walter Reed Medical Center, Schmidt reports the White House wanted Mike Pence “on standby to take over the powers of the presidency temporarily if Trump had to undergo a procedure that would have required him to be anesthetized.”

Ms. Mnuchin pretended her arm was injured in order to avoid having to shake hands with Mr. Trump, according to her grandson Zan Mnuchin Rozen.

Even Ms. Linton has said people shouldn’t assume she shares her husband’s politics.

Mr. Rozen, 22, wrote on Facebook in June that “my uncle has been complicit in, and in some cases directly culpable for, many years of the marginalization, persecution and stereotyping of black people in the United States.” His actions “cannot and will never be defensible.”

But Melania Trump kept up her breezy, emoji-filled texts to Winston Wolkoff and seemed to shrug it all off. Winston Wolkoff said her friend’s “nonresponse cast her as either a long-suffering victim of her unfaithful husband or a coldhearted gold digger.” “I now realize Melania is not a normal woman,” Winston Wolkoff continued. “Two women had described having sex with her husband on national TV in graphic detail in the same week.

Lindsey is favoring oil drilling off the South Carolina coast. She's in the pocket of the petroleum industry.

[quote]COLUMBIA, S.C. — Offshore drilling, an issue that has created some bipartisan unity in South Carolina among opponents who argue such expansion would mar the state’s pristine coastline, is surfacing in a political action committee’s effort to oust U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham. As the state’s beaches teem with visitors on Labor Day, Lindsey Must Go PAC is flying a plane up and down the South Carolina coast, with a trailing banner reading ”L. Graham Will Drill 4 Oil Here.” Officials with the PAC say the plane expenditure and an accompanying digital ad decrying Graham’s support for drilling expansion legislation and alleged ties to the oil industry, are part of a six-figure buy over the next two weeks, now that the campaign has entered its final two months and voters are starting to tune in.

Five years ago Graham tweeted this:

Hope is fading that there will be any coronavirus relief bill when Congress returns.

[quote]McConnell had been a force for a deal but does not appear eager to force a vote that exposes division in his ranks. Many Senate Republicans are also wary or opposed outright to another major chunk of debt-financed virus relief, even as GOP senators imperiled in the election like Susan Collins of Maine and Cory Gardner of Colorado plead for more. Republicans are struggling to coalesce around a unified party position — and that's before they engage with Democratic leaders, who are demanding far more.

An interesting thing about that, R522, is that shortly after I read an article about this I clicked over to comments and someone with a million crosses and "Christian" all over their profile was spewing hatred, anger and divisiveness.

'They are not a Christian', I thought.

It was then that I realized that maybe instead of just being an asshole this campaign director is playing chess and giving cover to the base. Maybe?

[quote]In the Republican fever dream version of this scenario, the Deep State is a tool of the left deployed against Donald Trump to foil his plans to make America great again, but what if it was the other way around? What if all the president’s whining about forces allied against him were a feint to distract us from the real conspiracy? Put on your tin foil hats because while I don’t normally believe in conspiracy theories, I’m pretty sure Bill Barr is the Deep State.

[quote]Think about it! He’s been in and out of government for 40 years, he (was) well respected and always in proximity to power, he looked and talked and acted just like every other Reagan Republican you’ve ever seen for decades but when the order came down he swung into action seizing power at the U.S. Department of Justice and turning it into a fully functioning personal law firm for the president. Bill Barr is a sleeper agent. Wake up sheeple! He lied about the Mueller report. He let Manafort out of prison. He’s currently trying to get Michael Flynn’s charges (which he plead guilty to, twice) dropped. The evidence is overwhelming!

[quote] I have said publicly several times since that, you know, I stand by my judgments ... I think it's been written a thousand times that this was a president who thrived on chaos and disruption and who didn't believe in, or didn't operate by, the normal processes and structures and norms, if you like, of the office. And, you know, whether you think he's done a great job, or that his record is more mixed, I think it's inarguable that he has stuck to that very unique style of conducting the presidency.
