Fox was part of the group of media/reporters that viewed it was too risky to be inside the facility for the Trump rally. Fox didn't want the PR criticism from being the lone network inside. Plus, Fox reporters and technicians didn't want to violate state Covid guidelines which the campaign organizers clearly did.

A call to impeach Bill Barr:It's time to do something far-reaching about Attorney General Bill Barr.
#ImpeachBarr and #DisBarr climbed the social-media charts over the past week after Barr's Justice Department moved to intervene on President Donald Trump's behalf in a defamation lawsuit. In a stunning move, Barr stepped in from the president's personal lawyers to take over the defense of the case against the commander-in-chief. The suit stems from Trump's response to a sexual-assault claim. That's right: At taxpayer expense, the attorney general is marshaling the resources of the Justice Department to defend Trump on a personal matter — not a governance matter. It's just the latest in a long list of actions by Barr to protect the president's politics at the expense of the rule of law that nourishes our democracy.

Emails show Pompeos knew their requests of State Dept. staff were personal tasks
[quote] Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s wife wanted senior State Department staff to work during the week of Christmas to complete their personal holiday cards, requesting they keep the circle small because of the private nature of the assignment, emails obtained by McClatchy show. Susan Pompeo wrote to Toni Porter, a longtime confidante and aide to the secretary from his days as a Kansas congressman, asking who would be in the office that week to help with the cards.
[quote] In Porter’s testimony to the House, which published a transcript of the hearing on Friday, she described discomfort at being asked to handle the holiday cards for the Pompeos. She named Joe Semrad, assistant to the secretary, as an official who filled in for her when she was unavailable to complete the Pompeos’ personal requests. Porter described her job at the State Department as handling projects of special importance to the secretary. In addition to Pompeo, Porter said she receives orders from the secretary’s wife through a private email address.

More on Caputo from R78
[quote] Caputo, who lived in Russia for six years, was an adviser to Boris Yeltsin from 1995 to 1999 and helped him get elected as president. He also served as an adviser to a subsidiary of the state-owned energy company Gazprom, and reportedly helped shore up Russian President Vladimir Putin’s reputation.
[quote] Caputo’s Kremlin ties were so concerning that he became a target of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He was questioned but was not charged with any offenses. He also testified before the House Intelligence Committee that he had no contact with Russians while serving on the Trump campaign.
[quote] Before he was appointed to his current role, Caputo also scrubbed nearly his entire Twitter history, which was riddled with graphic, offensive attacks, outlandish conspiracy theories, and racist comments about the Chinese.
[quote] But Caputo’s efforts to manipulate scientific information have been roundly slammed. Dr. Tom Inglesby, director of the Center for Health Security at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, called it a “new low for science in the U.S.” Gregg Gonsalves, assistant professor of epidemiology at the Yale University Medical School, characterized it as “thuggery, suitable for some tinpot dictatorship.”

I get annoyed when people attack Bob Woodward for not speaking out after he learned that Trump was fully briefed on the danger of the Covid virus in January. He said on Colbert last night he wasn't even sure Trump was being honest at that point.
But Trump wasn't the only one advised about the virus on an official level at that time. Kushner, Ivanka, Steven Miller, and other close advisers learned about it, too. Why didn't they come forward with their knowledge? They knew the truth but they sat back and looked the other way while Trump lied, over and over again, to the vulnerable American public. Meanwhile, public health officials did speak out and they were sidelined and dominated by Trump. Many of us didn't believe Trump, we never do, but some who did paid with their lives. RIP Herman Cain.
The president is a liar. We all know that. He continues to lie about Covid, putting his base at risk while he desperately hangs onto his fake presidency.

Actually, based on this scenario, Pence holds more power than he thinks -- hell, Trump needs him, not the other way around: Trump needs him for the fundie vote.

U.S. Admits That Congressman Offered Pardon to Assange If He Covered Up Russia Links.
Lawyers representing the United States at Julian Assange’s extradition trial in Britain have accepted the claim that the WikiLeaks founder was offered a presidential pardon by a Congressman on the condition that he would help cover up Russia’s involvement in hacking emails from the Democratic National Committee.
Jennifer Robinson, a lawyer, told the court that she had attended a meeting between Assange, then Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, and pro-Trump troll Charles Johnson at Assange’s hide-out, the Ecuadorian embassy in London, on August 15, 2017.
Robinson said the two Americans claimed to be emissaries from Washington and “wanted us to believe they were acting on behalf of the president.” The pair allegedly told Assange that they could help grant him a pardon in exchange for him revealing information about the source of the WikiLeaks information that proved it was not the Russians who hacked Democratic emails.

The White House and the pharmaceutical industry were nearing a major deal to lower drug prices. Then the administration demanded that $100 "Trump Cards" be sent to millions of seniors before the election — and the industry balked.
Some of the drugmakers bridled at being party to what they feared would be seen as an 11th-hour political boost for Mr. Trump. One drug company executive said they worried about the optics of having the chief executives of the country’s leading pharmaceutical makers stand with the president in the Rose Garden as he hoisted an oversized card and gloated about helping a crucial bloc of voters.

R208 We're not fucked from a voting standpoint, but we are fucked from a "voting " standpoint. We have way more than enough LEGITIMATE votes. We did in 2016. But have you been paying attention to all that's been going on behind the scenes? And I'm talking just the stuff we know about? (and, respectfully, please don't feel attacked by me, it's not my intent).
Many of us still all accept that 2016 was a legitimate, free and fair election. Yet so much evidence continues to be revealed that it was anything but!
I'm not just talking about the misinformation campaign and Comey's October surprise (just to mention two), I'm talking about evidence that voting machines in EVERY STATE were hacked. Not just the 21 first revealed by IG sources in 2017. It is why Trump has waged his campaign against the Post Office/mail-in voting, and is insistent that people HAVE to go to the polls. He knows Putin has the button to change the tallies, (it has to do with the touch screens, as well as other vulnerable technological areas). And because of the irreparable damage that has already been done, and the GOP representatives in certain areas that are deliberately still allowing, they are making it practically impossible for the mail voting system to work. People will be forced to literally risk their lives if they want to leave their houses and vote.
It also conveniently ties in to Trump still deliberately lying about the Covid number of deaths, brutality of the disease, and chances of getting it. Despite taped evidence of his own voice confirming he knew the risks and dangers, he continues to blatantly lie at his rallies. He lies about the number of deaths, the harshness of the disease, the long-term nasty effects, and each person's possibility of getting it. If supporters continue to think it's all "Fake", they'll go in person to the polls.
SEE how it's all connected?
No repairs have been implemented to our voting system. NONE! ..... quite the opposite....The Russians have improved their methods of infiltration. There is no way the results will be accurate. Not even close. Not with the people in charge.
Trump has already stated he will contest, 100%, when he loses because his losing is proof that our voting system is rigged! And we all know it is exactly the opposite. 180 degrees!! His "winning" is absolute proof that hacking successfully took place. Just like in 2016.
The Democrats have to come right out and say this. "IF DONALD TRUMP WINS, THAT IS 100% PROOF POSITIVE VOTING WAS RIGGED!"
The election should just be canceled. Trump should be disqualified and Biden automatically made President. Yes, of course I know this is impossible. I'm not delusional. But violence and death is a certainty come November. WTF can we do to prevent this?

r209 While I agree that touch screen computers are vulnerable, and especially the ones (like Georgia had until recently), which don't print out receipts for the votes cast that the voters can look at to verify, there are many states (such as my own) that use bubble sheets. Those are much harder to hack. Of course, I live in a blue state, and one which has had mail voting only for the past decade. It's vitally important that people vote this year. Huge numbers always benefit Democrats. That's why the Republicans focus on voter suppression. Also, while voting machines might get hacked in some areas, election day voter polling is generally accurate. So if 85% of the people responding say they voted for Joe Biden, and the voting totals in that district show Donald Trump winning by 85%, that's going to get attention. Voting hacks (if done cleverly) try to work on the margins - changing just enough votes in close elections to swing the election without drawing attention. It's vital that Trump lose by huge margins in every state, particularly in so-called "swing" states, to overcome the cheating that is almost certain to take place. This was always Obama's strategy, and it was a successful one.

Covid, elections security, postal updates,, western fires, storms recovery, economy, stimulus, unemployment, foreign matters, weather, sports, travel, House & Senate campaigns etc. ,

A friend of mine saw this piece on "CBS Sunday Morning" last month and is now convinced that Trump is going to use this secret Constitutional instrument called a PEAD to make himself autocratic ruler of the U.S. and there's nothing anybody can do about it. I tried to say that that's not how government takeovers happen, he would have to have the Pentagon solidly behind him for one thing, but no, it was on this fucking Sunday morning TV show so it's infallible truth.

I just finished reading Michael Cohen's book. I found it very interesting and enlightening in spite of already being well aware of trumps criminality and lies.
Near the end it got chilling, and that's in part from the description of his final dinner with trump before his home was raided by the FBI and subsequent troubles. The two of them had dinner with one of the richest men on the planet, talking business with trump having the ability to grant influence and favors to others from the middle east like the guest.
Cohen described trump as being always surrounded by billionaires and sycophants. They are at his hotels and clubs, lavishing him with praise, enriching his coffers through frequenting his properties, and generally sucking up to trump for the tax breaks and deregulation that creates even more wealth for them. Trump and cohorts are in a feeding frenzy at the trough that is our crumbling democracy.
The deplorable cult is nothing more than legions of zombies who somehow think there is something in this for them, as told in lies by trump for their votes. Yes, they feel validated in their racism, sexism, greed, and hate, but the dollars flow upward to the top.
trump is in this for the personal wealth and glory for himself, supported by and for the greedy rich. He cares nothing for regular Americans.
We all know this of course, those who pay attention, but Cohen's and other's remarks about not giving up power ring true, in large part because he knows he'll be indicted when he leaves office. November looms ominously and we must steel ourselves for the fight. He must not be allowed to cheat and lie to remain in office.

In a new book, Muelller prosecutor Andrew Weissman confirms that: Special Counsel team members where frustrated by Mueller's "mealymouthed" conclusion. And more: Mueller weakened his probe largely to avoid an explosive confrontation with the White House.
“Had we given it our all—had we used all available tools to uncover the truth, undeterred by the onslaught of the president’s unique powers to undermine our efforts?” Weissmann writes in the introduction. “I know the hard answer to that simple question: We could have done more.” Elsewhere, he admits that, “like Congress, we were guilty of not pressing as hard as we could” for evidence. He calls a crucial passage of the Mueller report “mealymouthed”—an easy mark for Barr’s treachery. “Part of the reason the president and his enablers were able to spin the report was that we had left the playing field open for them to do so.”

On March 17, 2020, the day of the Florida Presidential primary, Riddle rose at 6 a.m. and put on a T-shirt with an inscription that she’d devised: “First in Line, First Time Voting.” At the Robert L. Taylor Community Center, she signed her name to the voting roll and, at the age of sixty-two, cast her first ballot. “Like a gift from Heaven,” she said.
But, after voting in the primary, Riddle may not be able to vote in the upcoming general election. Six months after Amendment Four passed, the Republican-dominated legislature approved a law dictating that ex-felons could vote only if they first paid all the fines, restitution, and fees imposed at their sentencing. The law may affect as many as seven hundred and seventy thousand Florida residents, about half of whom are Black. In many cases, the totals came to thousands of dollars. The burden was not just large but uncertain: state officials testified that they had no way of knowing how much money felons owe, or whether they have paid; those calculations would take six years or so to complete.
The legislation gutted Amendment Four, but DeSantis claimed that he was merely enforcing the language that voters had approved. “The amendment does not apply to a felon who has failed to complete all the terms of his sentence,” he maintained.
Riddle and sixteen other former felons sued DeSantis, arguing that the requirement amounted to a poll tax, which is prohibited by the Constitution.

US ambassador under fire for hosting Dutch far-right bash

US ambassador under fire for hosting Dutch far-right bash Embassy and MP Thierry Baudet deny claims that event was a fundraiser.
By ELINE SCHAART 9/22/20, 6:31 PM CET The U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands has been accused of interfering in national politics after hosting an event for the far-right Forum for Democracy party.
The event, held at the American Embassy in Wassenaar on September 10, featured between 30 and 40 "party officials and wealthy entrepreneurs," according to Dutch magazine De Groene Amsterdammer. Ambassador Pete Hoekstra spoke at the event. Hoekstra, who was born in the Netherlands but raised in Michigan, was appointed by Donald Trump in 2017.
Other political parties, including Prime Minister Mark Rutte's VVD, have raised questions about the event and whether it should have been allowed. "Of course this should not have happened," MP Bram van Ojik from the Greens told broadcaster NOS. "This is interference in our elections."

R304? Of course that's the case, but proportions don't vote -- people do. Here is the data from 2010, which shows that, while a disproportionate number of Blacks compared to their total in the population are incarcerated in Florida, the actual number of persons in jails/prisons is not that different. In other words, there are more Blacks in prisons (47% of the prison population vs. 41% white), but not by much.
And as I said, the white ones, at least in my neighborhood, are champing at the bit to vote for Trump.

Trump aides argue that he can't be racist because he also hates women. From today's WaPo:
"Several officials said that Trump is not a disciplined enough thinker to grasp the full dimensions of the white nationalist agenda, let alone embrace it. Others pointed out that they have observed him making far more offensive comments about women, insisting that his scorn is all-encompassing and therefore shouldn’t be construed as racist.”
