August 8, 2018 8:37 AM Log in to Reply Mr. Bear “In several instances, voters showed up at their polling places as listed on the secretary of state’s website, only to be told they were supposed to vote elsewhere” I worked at the Brookhaven precinct in 2016 and personally witnessed at least three instances of people coming in from Lithonia only to discover that they had been sent to the wrong precinct by the website. And, there’s always the nagging doubt as to whether this was the result of incompetence or error at the website level or a deliberate attempt to commit voter fraud. In either case, the did not vote at that precinct, but they could have cast a provisional ballot if they wanted to press the matter. August 8, 2018 8:50 AM Log in to Reply armanidog Interesting article. The original source requires one to sign up. “Where Did the Ex-Confederate Leaders Go After the Confederacy Was Defeated by the Union?” “Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, spent two years shackled to a wall in a Virginia prison. He had many unlikely sympathetic supporters including the Pope, who advocated for mercy, and even some former enemies and abolitionists. After he was released he went to Canada and Cuba and England and eventually managed a successful insurance company, hiring only former Confederate officers. He remained an unrepentant racist and Confederate supporter until the end of his life…” http://mentalfloss.com/article/553359/where-did-confederate-leaders-go-after-confederacy-was-defeated August 8, 2018 7:58 AM Log in to Reply downthemiddle I want to read that.

August 8, 2018 10:23 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 The point is that 8 of 9 TGM-endorsed candidates in special elections have won. August 8, 2018 12:11 PM Andrew C. Pope No, the point is the Republican candidate, in heavily Republican district, needed a Trump rally, a VP visit, and millions in ad buys to eke out a 0.9% advantage. . If Georgia scrimmaged the Georgia School for the Deaf and Blind and escaped with a win in quadruple overtime, you wouldn’t be sticking your chest out, you’d be concerned and highly doubtful of Georgia’s ability to beat a team with all 5 senses. . There are 68 Republican-held districts that are less Republican than OH-12. If the GOP needs to pull out all the stops to win in a place like OH-12, they’re in trouble. August 8, 2018 12:30 PM Noway2016 With respect…TGM is ready, willing and able to do all of the 68 rallies you list. Every.Single.One! I hope all of those districts are won by the Repub by 528 votes! Gonna KAGA! August 8, 2018 12:56 PM Andrew C. Pope But he did a rally in OH-12 and all it got him was a 0.9% margin. Trump showing up for a rally is not a guarantor of success in less Republican districts. Ask Rick Saccone. August 8, 2018 1:06 PM Noway2016 Can you b’leve I’m gonna say this? You’re absolutely correct! That’s why AFOne is gonna be gassed up to the max between now and November! August 8, 2018 1:11 PM Benevolus The point is, many GOP candidates have a dilemma: Embrace Trump and lose 10-40% of the votes they got before, or Distance themselves from Trump and lose 10-40% of the votes they got before. August 8, 2018 2:25 PM Caroline That R +14 district took 5.2 million out of the GOP warchest. The DNC only spent 1 million to get it to basically a tie.

But if you consider that the district was +23 Romney in 2012, +11 Trump in 2016 and has had one donk winner in almost 80 years you can see why the pros on both sides look at the race as a indicator of Nov results. August 8, 2018 8:45 AM Log in to Reply xdog Here’s a cautionary tale from Johnson County Kansas that new voting machines aren’t a guarantee of seamless tallies. “The county spent more than $10 million to buy the new machines, which provide a paper audit trail in case of any disputed outcome. The county’s old machines were outdated and needed to be replaced, and we have no quarrel with that decision. But some of the new machines simply didn’t work Tuesday, leading some voters to give up and go to work. Poll workers were seemed unsure of a backup plan. Some voters think ballots may have been miscast.” That’s from an editorial in the Kansas City Star. https://www.kansascity.com/opinion/editorials/article216233135.html#storylink=cpy As a result, the winner of the gop governor’s primary is still in doubt. “Metsker said the voting results were properly tabulated and secured, with a paper audit trail. But he also acknowledged that the new voting system had major problems with reporting the results. Metsker said the vendor for the new machines, Election Systems & Software, had its best engineers working on the problem throughout the night. He said they had finally found a workaround for the problem about 11 p.m. https://www.kansas.com/news/politics-government/article216045360.html#storylink=cpy I don’t know anyone who would be satisfied by a late night ‘workaround’.

I have to work, can’t keep up with this stuff every day.

I just hope she isn’t a jihadist colleague of Sarsour’s. August 8, 2018 2:28 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn I don’t like Sarsour views, no truly rational person should.

If you listen to podcasts and live stream news shows while working, it’s amazing what you can learn while working. August 8, 2018 2:42 PM Benevolus I don’t know anything about her so I looked her up and on wikipedia it sounds like she didn’t actually “call all Muslims in America to wage war on non-Mislims?”. It says: . “At an address to a May 2017 Islamic Society of North America convention, Sarsour recounted a story from Islamic scripture in which a person asks “What is the best form of jihad or struggle?” The answer, according to her, was “a word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader”.Speaking of the need for Muslim Americans to defend themselves against anti-Muslim policies from the Trump administration, Sarsour said: . “I hope that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.” . Sarsour’s use of the word jihad was interpreted by several conservative media outlets and personalities as a call for violence against the president. She and others rejected that interpretation, citing her commitment to nonviolent activism . ji·had 1. a struggle or fight against the enemies of Islam. “he declared a jihad against the infidels” 2. the spiritual struggle within oneself against sin. August 8, 2018 3:27 PM Sally Forth You’re a better man than me if you can “listen to podcasts and live stream news shows while working” and produce any substantial work product for your employer or clients. August 8, 2018 3:28 PM Andrew C. Pope I’m no fan of Sarsour either, but I think there’s a difference between her and a guy like Steve King – who is an elected member of Congress, mind you – that openly spouts white supremacy and unapologetically retweets Neo-Nazi propaganda. . I’d avoid whataboutism if my party’s standard bearer publicly endorsed a child molester and accepted the endorsement of the former grand wizard of the Klan. August 8, 2018 3:43 PM alpha male These leftists are missing the point with their comparisons . It’s not that Sarsour supports her. It is that Abrams apparently stated she is actually PROUD to stand with this bigot. August 8, 2018 4:29 PM Ellynn In my best Eowyn voice. ” I am no man”.

August 8, 2018 4:34 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus That’s just what I wanted to say but you found better words than I was coming up with. August 8, 2018 5:18 PM Andrew C. Pope In an effort to treat others like I’d want to be treated, I went ahead and read the article Sally posted. . First, the article, without any evidence, alleges that the FBI and NSA committed “rampant violations of procedures indented to safeguard American’s [sic] personal data and communications collected under Section 702 of FISA.” . Second, the article incorrectly asserted that the NSA had an 85% noncompliance rate, based on a “top secret FISC report.” This is incorrect. The non-compliance rate is approximately 0.5%, not 85%. This is according to the 2017 AG and DNI semi-annual assessment. . Third, the article asserts that the “justification” for the FBI’s FISA warrant on Carter Page was the “unverified ‘Steele dossier.'” This is also incorrect. If you’ll recall, a few weeks ago I walked through the FISA applications provided by the FBI and explained what various redaction codes meant and what the FISA applications showed with regard to the intelligence obtained by the FBI. As I made clear then, the Steele Dossier was only part of the evidence presented to FISC to establish probable cause and subsequent renewals all included intelligence gathered from Page evidencing ongoing criminal activity or potentially criminal activity. . Sally, I offered you an opportunity to provide cites to support the contention that the Steele Dossier was the lone source of evidence relied upon by the FBI or the contention that the FBI didn’t disclose the political nature of the document to the FISC. You were nice enough to give it an earnest effort, and I appreciate that. But the notion that the Steele Dossier alone was the basis of the FISA warrant against Carter Page has been repeatedly rebutted. . Lastly, I’d question the source here. Roger Stone is looking at potential legal jeopardy for, inter alia, possibly coordinating the release of purloined DNC emails, data, and internal documents via Wikileaks. Of course he’s going to have an axe to grind with the folks investigating him for doing illegal s—.

Nails down Associate Deputy A/G Ohr as the go-between for DOJ participants and FBI’s Strzok, et.al. in the conspiracy to take down a president and reverse an election. The FBI made eleven payments to Fusion GPS for the falsehood dirty dossier created by Christopher Steele, British spy. Millions were also paid by the DNC and the Clinton campaign. No legitimate news organization would take part in their circular reporting, so they had to use Buzzfeed to get it in the public domain. Then Ohr, Strzok, etc. drew up the phony FISA warrant signed by Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Yates, and Boente, based totally on the phony dossier. They lied to the FISA judge in order to get the FISA warrant that is the basis of the whole Mueller “investigation” for collusion. Which has only resulted in old tax charges against people like Manafort, and accusations/indictments against some Russian citizens (who we cannot even interview) about computer meddling. It sounds like something out of a spy novel — but it’s all documented and the documents go straight into the White House of our previous president. I’m pretty sure that a group of high-ranking government officials conspiring to take down an incoming president is the definition of treason. Is it any wonder that Mueller is so desperate to find something, any technicality to get himself and his cronies off the hook? But enough from me.

Pope 1) What evidence supports the conclusion the FBI paid Steele/Fusion for the dossier? The FBI disclosed to FISC that Steele had previously been used by the Bureau as a confidential source on other investigations (part of the reason they trusted the information he was providing them), are you perhaps confusing the two? . 2) Subsequent FISA renewals contained actual communications from Carter Page evidencing illegal activity. How can you say that the sole piece of evidence against Page was the “Steele Dossier”? . 3) If the Obama Administration/FBI/”Deep State” didn’t want Trump to become President, why didn’t they leak the existence of an ongoing counterintelligence investigation into his campaign before election day? Even better, why wouldn’t they leak the “Steele Dossier” or the actual surveillance recordings of Page, Popadopoulos, etc. before election day?
