OMG! It just occurred to me that Moscow Mitch could...

Hook up his big voting machine manufacturer donors with his big Russian donors - and voila! - rig the election without even having to hack into it from the outside!

His close business associate/donor (and honorary GOP member) - Oleg Deripaska could provide the voting machine manufacturers with a few english speaking Russian tech workers who could build the desired "hack bug" right into the software of 80% of the voting machines in America!

Moscow Mitch could guarantee Trump and GOP victories forevermore!

6. That's why democrats have to keep investigating. They can't sit by and watch

Are they investigating mitch in the House? I sure hope so. Maybe it's part of the impeachment inquiry. If mitch is working with the russians it could all come out there.

That is pretty much our only hope IMO.

WASHINGTON óHouse investigations of Trump and his administration:
by Alex Moe
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/house-investigations-trump-his-administration-full-list-n1010131
At least 14 Democratic-led House committees have been investigating various aspects of President Donald Trump's businesses, campaign and his presidency since the beginning of this year, an NBC News review shows. In all, those committees have launched at least 50 probes into Trump world.

The investigations include whether Trump obstructed justice in the Russia probes, whether his businesses inflated their assets, how his daughter and son-in-law obtained their security clearances, whether he used his power to interfere with mergers, how his actions might have slowed aid to Puerto Rico, and conflict of interest allegations involving cabinet members. The NBC review shows the busiest committees appear to be the Judiciary and Oversight panels. Some of the inquiries might have gone dormant, and some are cross-committee ó meaning they're being investigated jointly by more than one committee ó so they are listed under those committees, but are only counted once in the NBC investigation total.

Here's a look at the probes that have been made public, organized by committee:

8. and the newsy people are already...

doing their part by predicting a very close election this far out. Supposedly it's harder to steal when it's a landslide, but after 2016, I have my doubts. Automatic, random recounts of a percentage of the vote would be a great thing for states to do. I'm going to have to call my Secretary of States office. Put a little bug in someone's ear.

Folks,the 2016 cycle put billions in ad dollars on the Media's profit bottom line.

Trump is the weakest, most unpopular president in U.S. history - nationally and abroad.

10. We should all have paper ballots

and they should be counted under strict honest supervision and make sure they match the tally from the voting machines.

Or is that too much trouble?

19. Exactly! F*ck electronic voting!!

I don't care if takes days or weeks to declare a winner...

Bear in mind, we were able to do this through 2000 - and then it was an electronic hack in Florida (Volusia county) - that started the whole electronically stolen election.

So the population hasn't grown so much in the past 19 years that it would impossible to manage. It's such insane bullshit.

we hammer Moscow Mitch everywhere and six ways until Sunday. Twitter, FB, any social media. At town halls. on the streets. Opinion pieces and letters to editors. Calls to reps/senator pushing or condemning polices. Not forgetting to bring up Criminal Trump at the same time.
