[Al Ahram] Nevada state politicians passed a bill Sunday that would add the state to a growing list of U.S. states that will mail active voters ballots ahead of the November election amid the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague) ...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men... pandemic.
The bill now heads to Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat. If he signs it as expected, Nevada will join seven states that plan on automatically sending voters mail ballots, including Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, and Vermont, which moved earlier this summer to adopt automatic mail ballot policies.
President Donald Trump ...His ancestors didn't own any slaves... called the bill's passage ``an illegal late night coup`` in a tweet Monday morning. He accused Sisolak of exploiting COVID-19 to ensure votes in Nevada would favor Democrats.
``Nevada's clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state. Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation ... See you in court!``
Trump has claimed the mail ballots would lead to fraud and compromise the integrity of the election. The consensus among experts is that all forms of voter fraud are rare.
Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske told politicians Friday that she wasn't aware of any fraud in the June primary, when Nevada mailed all active voters absentee ballots and only opened a limited number of polling places to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The consensus among experts is that all forms of voter fraud are rare.
Experts, huh? They just put a sentence like this in their article and think that proves it, like there can never be any doubt, without any supporting facts or evidence. Which experts? Who are these people and what methodology did they use to come to this conclusion, this consensus? How do these experts know so much? Because I think it's all bullshit. I think Democrats cheat and lie all the time and their allies in the media cover it up for them.

When money is 'on call' from the Fed, why would they bother with thousands of depositors for capital? The purpose of the Fed was to mitigate the 'crashes' of the 19th Century only to see them preside over two Depressions of which they largely contributed. Sort of like the CDC was suppose to work in mitigating pan-epidemics not fumble the entire process.
They were into Fanny Mae and Freddie Mae when the market collapsed. Hey, that's where the unreal return on investment was compared to Euro ventures. There was no legal obligation on the part of the government to bail any investors out. Bush & Co did just that at everyone's expense because, among others, the Euro banks would have failed.
[BREITBART] During a presser on Monday, New York City Mayor Comrade Bill de Blasio ...cryptocommie mayor of New York and for some reason a Dem candidate for president in 2020. Corrupt and incompetent, his qualifications for office seem to consist of being married to a black woman, with whom he honeymooned in Cuba. He has a preppy-looking son named Dante, whose Divine Comedy involved getting his back hair up when a police car drove past him slowly. New Yorkers voted for him, so they deserve him... (D) stated that painting Black Lives Matter street murals was a "decision I made" and that the decision on the murals "transcends all normal realities." But that others who want to paint murals must apply, and "the n
De Blasio responded to a question on whether he submitted a Department of Transportation application before painting the Black Lives Matter murals and how he plans to handle other groups that want to paint their own street murals by saying, "We haven’t said no to people. We have said, if you want to apply, you can apply, but there’s a process. Look, the fact is that what I decided to do with the Black Lives Matter murals, and this came out of a meeting...with community leaders and activists who said this would be such an important thing for this city to declare, officially, that is something that, again, transcends all normal realities. Because we are in a moment in history where this had to be said and done. That’s a decision I made. But the normal process continues for anyone who wants to apply."ormal process continues for anyone who wants to apply.”
[NEWSBUSTERS.ORG] MICHAEL SMERCONISH: Joe, if the president is watching this right now, I could see him rubbing his hands together and saying, oh, my God. That would be perfect because then I, of course, get to say he's afraid to get on the stage with me. It has to do with his cognitive abilities.
JOE LOCKHART: Yes. Well, he will say that. And I think as I wrote in the article it's worth the risk. This is a president who as I said in the article is incapable of telling the truth. He spins these conspiracy theories out there. And up until now most of those theories are broadcast by FOX News and, you know, on his Twitter feed. You know, most Americans don't see that.
The debates are very different. This is the one thing, now that we're not really going to have conventions where the public will tune in, you know, 50, 60 million people. And they will -- they will see all of this nonsense from him. He will take the truth and destroy it. And Biden will be in the position of correcting him over and over and over again. I don't think he should give him that platform.
Remember - the Media™ says independent / undecided voters are "the most intelligent" voters. So intelligence=no need for additional information.

"In a stunning display of vigor and competence equal to Washington crossing the Delaware and Teddy Roosevelt charging up San Juan Hill, Joe Biden stood erect for ninety minutes with only minor drooling, steadfastly maintaining his position that a member of the audience was a lying dog-faced pony soldier. His election to the Senate is all but assured."
[NBCCHICAGO] Rep. Ford Today in Evanston to Call for the Abolishment of History Classes in Illinois SchoolsConcerned that current school history teaching leads to white privilege and a racist society, state Rep. La Shawn K. Ford, D-reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown ...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel... , will join local leaders today at noon at the Robert Crown Center in Evanston to call on the state to stop its current history teaching practices until appropriate alternatives are developed.
"When it comes to teaching history in Illinois, we need to end the miseducation of Illinoisans," Ford said. "I’m calling on the Illinois State Board of Education and local school districts to take immediate action by removing current history books and curriculum practices that unfairly communicate our history. Until a suitable alternative is developed, we should instead devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand our democratic processes and how they can be involved. I’m also alarmed that people continue to display symbols of hate, such as the recent display of the Confederate flag in Evanston."
Attendees at Sunday’s presser will discuss how current history teaching practices overlook the contributions by Women and members of the Black, Jewish, LGBTQ communities and other groups. These individuals are pushing for an immediate change in history changing practice starting this school year.
"The miseducation of our children must stop," said Meleika Gardner of We Will. "It is urgent that it comes to an end as we witness our current climate become more hostile. Miseducation has fed and continues to feed systemic racism for generations. If Black History continues to be devalued and taught incorrectly, then it will call for further action."
Evanston Mayor Steve Hagerty notes "As Mayor, I am not comfortable speaking on education, curriculum, and whether history lessons should be suspended. This is not my area. Personally, I support House Bill 4954 because I am interested in learning more and believe the history of Black people should be taught to all children and include all groups, Women, LatinX, and Native Indians who helped to build America."
