Democrat Charged with Voter Fraud After Allegedly Requesting Ballot for Dead Wife
[BREITBART] A man was charged with voter fraud Thursday after he allegedly requested a mail ballot for his deceased wife in Manatee County, Florida.

The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office began investigating 62-year-old Larry Wiggins in September when Manatee County Supervisor of Elections Mike Bennett reported the suspicious ballot request, according to the Herald-Tribune.

"Bennett said his staff discovered the fraud during a routine check of the voter roll that is done whenever someone requests a mail ballot," the article stated.

Howevever, the supervisor noted that "As soon as they pulled up the file it showed that she is dead."

Officials then compared the handwriting on the ballot request for the suspect’s wife with her signature on file and realized they did not match.

"Deputies were alerted on Sept. 17 and later interviewed Wiggins. The registered Democrat told them he was ’testing the system,'" the Herald-Tribune report said.

Based on Wiggins’ statements and the evidence, Sherlocks "developed probable cause to charge the suspect with Requesting Vote by Mail Ballot on Behalf of Another Elector," according to a blurb from the sheriff’s office.

"On 09/22/20 the case was sent to the State Attorney’s Office for review, and on 09/29/20 the SAO agreed to proceed with prosecution. On 10/01/20 Larry Wiggins was arrested at his home without incident," the release continued.

Andrew McCabe refuses to testify before Senate in person OR remotely, citing COVID risk
[BizPacReview] Disgraced former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe — an Obama holdover who was fired for lying to the FBI — took a page from the Democrat Party’s playbook by using the coronavirus as an excuse to not testify about the spurious origins of the Russia collusion narrative.

McCabe now works for CNN as an analyst. He was set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week as part of the Republicans’ investigation into the dubious origins of the failed Russia-collusion debacle. However, he pulled out yesterday, saying it would "put his family’s health at risk."

McCabe made the announcement shortly after two Republican GOP senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee — Mike Lee of Utah and Thom Tillis of North Carolina — both tested positive for COVID-19.

AOC: No. Why Would I Meet With Jewish Community Leaders?
[Hot Air] Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is coming up on the end of her first term in office, having generated more headlines and hot takes than most back-bench, first-term members of the House than you could probably think of. She’s kept herself busy on the national stage for the entire time, particularly as a surrogate for Bernie Sanders throughout most of the Democratic primary. But her schedule in terms of interacting with her constituents back home in Queens and the Bronx has been a bit on the light side. That’s been of increasing concern to the Jewish community who represent a significant portion of the residents in her district.

The New York Post reports this week that prominent leaders in the city’s Jewish Community have been requesting meetings with AOC ever since she was sworn in so they could discuss issues of importance to New York’s Jews. But thus far, the freshman congresswoman hasn’t made time to meet with any of them.

#5  She doesn't even need to pretend.

They'll still overwhelmingly vote for her, in order to bravely stand up to a threat that ended over 75 years ago, while studiously ignoring what threatens them now.

#6  ^ And what did Roosevelt, the Democrat, do about that threat? Before the war started he denied visas to Jews who were desperate to leave Germany thus leaving them to their fate at the hands of the genocidal Hitler. I guess that's just how Democrats feel about the Juice.

Tens Turn Out to See Bernie Sanders Campaign for Joe Biden in NH
Feel the Bern! Enthusiasm soars
[Breitbart] A small crowd turned out to see Bernie Sanders campaign for Joe Biden in New Hampshire on Saturday.

Sanders was stumping for Biden in the town of Lebanon.

"Bernie Sanders takes the stage for a distanced rally for Joe Biden in Lebanon," Adam Sexton of WMUR reported, posting a photo of a handful of people there to see the socialist senator:

The colors this year are poor and didn't last long. Last weeks torrential rain and 30+ mph wind pretty much killed it.

Unfortunately there are way too many socialist scum here, think ignorant hippies. After all, Dartmouth is basically next door to Lebanon and it is no better than the average "elite" ivy league hole.

Still see more Trump signs than Biden which cheers me up occasionally even if it doesn't really mean anything.

'Hoping President Trump can participate': Biden campaign official says Democratic nominee will be at next debate as scheduled
[WashingtonExaminer] The Democratic presidential nominee will participate in the next debate as scheduled, according to senior campaign adviser Symone Sanders.

In an interview with CNN
...formerly the Cable News Network, now who know what it might stand for...
host Jake Tapper on State of the Union, Sanders said Biden is "looking forward" to the next presidential debate scheduled for Oct. 15 in Miami, Florida, and hopes President Trump will feel well enough to participate.

"We are looking forward to the debate on Oct. 15 in Miami," Sanders said. "It’s a town hall and, as you know, Vice President Biden loves a good town hall. And we are hoping President Trump can participate. We're hoping that he's medically able to participate, and that is up to his doctors to clear him. But Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Candidate for president in 2020. When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'...
will be at that debate."

Three debates are scheduled to take place before the Nov. 3 election, including the vice presidential debate between current Vice President Mike Pence and Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, Sen. Kámala Harris
Former Oakland mayor Willie Brown's former mistress, now a senatrix from California former 2020 Dem presidential hopeful, and Joe Biden's wing nut...
on Oct. 7. C-SPAN's Steve Scully is scheduled to moderate the presidential debate in South Florida.

#1  Scully, when asked said:

Scully, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation, described his internships for both Biden and former Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy in a 2011 interview with The Cable Center.

“I came to school in Washington, D.C., went to American University and had a couple of internships,” he said. “I worked for Joe Biden, senator from Delaware at the time, as an intern, so I had my first chance to really see politics up close in Washington, D.C.”

“I worked for Senator Kennedy,” he continued. “I was involved in his ill-fated campaign in 1980, which was interesting; having worked as a high school student in the Carter campaign in 1976, I saw from two different perspectives. I always knew I wanted to come back to Washington.”

I see a couple of options:

1. Issue boxing gloves to Trump and Biden and have it out
2. Cancel the debate and spare us another rigged debate

Pelosi says she's not being briefed on Trump's health
Perhaps she should start reading Rantburg.

Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House. It's not her fault when they lose, but it's her accomplishment when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... moments...
on Sunday said she has not been briefed on President Donald Trump
...the Nailer of NAFTA...
's health since his Covid-19 diagnosis despite her position as second in the presidential line of succession behind Vice President Mike Pence.

"We're getting our information the way everyone else is -- in the media," Pelosi said during an interview on CBS' "Face the Nation."

"But in terms of the succession, that's an ongoing process. Sadly at this time, it comes to the forefront."

Pelosi, who tested negative for Covid-19 on Friday, added that she's praying for "good health" and a "speedy recovery" for Trump while hoping that the episode will serve as "a signal that we really have to do better in preventing the spread of this virus."

Her comments come as the President remains at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment after being moved there Friday. In a news conference Sunday, Trump's doctors said that even though the President has had at least two concerning drops in oxygen levels, they are hoping he could be discharged as early as Monday.

Trump bans Communist Party members from immigrating to America
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] The Trump administration announced it will ban members of any foreign Communist party from immigrating to America. This includes the Chinese Communist Party. The new policy took effect on October 2.

The Trump administration’s Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced an update to the USCIS Policy Manual stating, "to address inadmissibility based on membership in or affiliation with the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party."

"Membership in or affiliation with the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party is inconsistent and incompatible with the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America, which includes pledging to "'support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States,'" USCIS noted.

"In general, unless otherwise exempt, any intending immigrant who is a member or affiliate of the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party (or subdivision or affiliate), domestic or foreign, is inadmissible to the United States," the release added.

Trump COVID roundup: Trump briefly leaves hospital, waves to supporters
[NYPOST] President Trump briefly left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Sunday afternoon amid his battle with 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...
, greeting throngs of backers with a wave from an SUV.

The commander-in-chief, wearing a mask, waved to supporters from the rear passenger seat of a black Chevy Suburban, shortly after tweeting a video in which he promised a "little surprise visit" to the crowd.

"I also think we’re gonna pay a little surprise to some of the great patriots that we have out on the street," said Trump in the video, published moments before the unannounced drive-by. "They’ve been out there for a long time and they’ve got Trump flags and they love our country.

"I’m not telling anybody but you, but I’m about to make a little surprise visit."

Following the brief spin, Trump returned to his suite at the Bethesda, Md. hospital, where he was admitted on Friday less than 24 hours after he and first lady Melania tested positive for the contagion.


Doctors say Trump on steroid therapy, health improving after brief 'episodes'
[NEWS.YAHOO] President Donald Trump
...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons......
's medical team said Sunday in a presser that Trump's conditions were improving after multiple "episodes" over the weekend and he was placed on a steroid therapy typically used with more severe Covid-19 cases."Since we spoke last, the president has continued to improve. As with any illness, there are frequent ups and downs over the course particularly when a patient is so closely watched," said Dr. Sean Conley, a White House physician.

Dr. Sean Dooley said that Trump has remained without a fever since Friday morning and that his vital signs are stable. Trump could be discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as soon as Monday, the doctors said.

Trump's doctors said that the president was on dexamethasone, the steroid used for the sickest Covid-19 patients. The medical team said the president took his first dose of the drug on Saturday and would remain on it for the "time being."

Sunday’s update follows a dizzying 24 hours chalked full of conflicting accounts from the White House on the state of the president's health, leaving the American public with little information on the country's leadership as the nation continues to grapple with the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)

pandemic in the final few days of a pivotal presidential campaign.

Israeli expert: Early action by Trump doctors apparently averted serious illness
[IsraelTimes] Prof. Gabi Barbash, a top commentator on matters related to the coronavirus since the pandemic began, assesses that US President Donald Trump’s doctors apparently have managed to prevent him from suffering a serious illness.

Speaking on Channel 12, Barbash explains that of the two drugs Trump was given, remdesivir prevents the virus from replicating in the body while Regeneron is experimental and includes antibodies that destroy the virus. Regeneron has been used on 270 patients so far with no side effects, he says.

"I imagine that his doctors assessed that he was on the path to serious illness, judging by the first two days," Barbash says. "They took a make-or-break decision to give him experimental treatment. They apparently gave it to him very early. The effect of the antibodies given early in the illness... was apparently effective. Now they’re using steroids to prevent complications of the immune system."

Asked whether Trump is out of danger if they discharge him tomorrow, Barbash says: "He’s not without danger, but, overall, they’ve apparently taken him out of the early stage of what could have been serious illness."

#3  Trump's doctors said that the president was on dexamethasone, the steroid used for the sickest Covid-19 patients.

B.S. I asked my physician if his group has treated any CV-19 patients. He said they treat CV-19 routinely with dexamethasone.

It is being reported that Trump has been given a drug cocktail which is a combination of two so-called monoclonal antibodies. The treatment is meant to provide the body's immune system with a temporary but immediate boost to fight off the coronavirus.

We have a cat that has been on dexamethasone for 3-4 years now for inflammation. It jacks-up her appetite like crazy. She probably eats more than the other seven cats combined.

#6  After Trump’s medical team announced President Trump is improving, a reporter was caught on a hot mic laughing and saying, “That wasn’t as fun as yesterday!”

#7  Saw a wonderful tell somewhere, prog trying to come to grips about all this. Something like, "OMG Trump faked his illness to show we can open the economy!"

You know, because conducting business as normal would be bad.

#8  This Covid thing could be yuuge for Trump.
You know how you get super-powers from a radioactive spider bite?
What if defeating the virus gives President Trump super-human abilities?
Stuff like clouding the minds of his enemies. OK, you can argue he already has that. Or else his enemies are the biggest bunch of buffle-headed morons ever. Either, or.

Maybe the ability to induce hysteria in the minds of his opponents? Again, a pre-existing condition. One tweet from the Prez and the Media, Hollywood, and half the country are off baying at the moon.

Hey, what if his super-power is the ability to get re-elected President and defeat the Deep State(tm) in a final battle between Good and Evil? I'd totally watch that movie!
