Intelligence community's top election official: China and Iran don't want Trump to win reelection

https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/07/politics/2020-election-russia-china-iran/index.html

(CNN)The US intelligence community's top election security official said in a statement Friday that China "prefers" an outcome where President Donald Trump is not reelected in November and Russia is working to "denigrate" former Vice President Joe Biden's White House bid.

Report: Kushner's Covid-19 testing plan 'went poof into thin air'

Source: CNN.com

Erin Burnett Out Front

VIDEO at link

According to a Vanity Fair report, White House senior adviser, Jared Kushner, was working on a secret national testing plan in the spring to help bring the spread of Covid-19 under control.

The fact a plan existed is amazing.

That they killed it is while not surprising is quite insane and very damaging for Trump imo.

But if it was killed for the reasons stated in the report, then THIS should END TRUMP.

Pay attention to the White House Spokesperson's response. She never once said there was NOT a plan. What a political gold mine this is imo.

Pelosi mandates masks in House chamber after Gohmert tests positive for Covid-19

Source: CNN.com

Washington (CNN)House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday she would require all House members and aides to wear masks on the floor after Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert -- who was often in the chamber interacting with colleagues and refusing to wear a face-covering -- tested positive for coronavirus.

"Members and staff will be required to wear masks at all times in the hall of the House," Pelosi announced from the House floor Wednesday afternoon.

Lawmakers will be permitted to temporarily take off masks when they are speaking.

Members and staff will not be allowed to enter if they don't wear masks. Pelosi noted that as speaker she has the authority to direct the House sergeant-at-arms to tell members to leave if they do not wear a mask.

This should be interesting....

From a friends FB post... COVID "humor/commentary"

So we're into our 5th month of defeating COVID-19. I didn’t write this but These words made me laugh but there's a lot of truth mixed in to consider. . .😂

1. So let me get this straight, there’s no cure for a virus that can be killed by sanitizer and hand soap?

2. Is it too early to put up the Christmas tree yet? I have run out of things to do.

3. When this virus thing is over with, I still want some of you to stay away from me.

4. If these last months have taught us anything, it’s that stupidity travels faster than any virus on the planet. Just look at the idiot wearing his mask below his nose in Publix.

5. Just wait a second – so what you're telling me is that my chance of surviving all this is directly linked to the common sense of others? You’re kidding, right?

6. People are scared of getting fined or arrested for congregating in crowds, as if catching a deadly disease and dying a horrible death wasn’t enough of a deterrent.

7. If you believe all this will end and we will get back to normal just because we reopen everything, raise your hand. Now slap yourself with it.

8. Another Saturday night in the house and I just realized the trash goes out more than me.

9. Whoever decided a liquor store is more essential than a hair salon is obviously a bald-headed alcoholic.

10. Remember when you were little and all your underwear had the days of the week on them. Those would be helpful right now.

11. The spread of Covid-19 is based on two factors: 1. How dense the population is and 2. How dense the population is.

12. Remember all those times when you wished the weekend would last forever? Well, wish granted. Happy now?

13. It may take a village to raise a child, but I swear it’s going to take a whole vineyard to homeschool one.

14. Did a big load of pajamas so I would have enough clean work clothes for this week.

Barry Diller Has No Time for Talk of a World Changed by Pandemic

LINK

(Bloomberg) -- Forget working from home and Zoom meetings. Barry Diller is betting the future looks a lot like the past.

A billionaire who made his fortune first as a Hollywood mogul and more recently in online dating, Diller is predicting that life pretty much returns to normal once there’s a coronavirus vaccine. Families will again take vacations and managers will send employees to conferences.

He’d better hope so, because one of his companies -- Expedia Group Inc., the online travel agency -- depends on it.

“You cannot live in this moment where we project the future based on present circumstance,” Diller said in a Bloomberg “Front Row” interview. “I think relatively little changes.”

Few chief executives share his view. Many are preparing for a world permanently altered by the pandemic, touting the virtues of video conferencing and discussing plans to downsize real estate.


While I think he's guilty of some very self-serving projection, at least he links a "return" to a vaccine. IMO anyone who does not get that is in for a very jarring awakening and a lot of frustration.

Full disclosure: I'm a big admirer of Barry Diller and his IAC team

Report: Russian troll farm included pro-Jill Stein messaging on social media

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)A report prepared for the Senate Intelligence Committee said Russian social media efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election included messaging in support of the Green Party 2016 presidential nominee Jill Stein.

CNN obtained the report, prepared by New Knowledge, which said the Russian government-linked Internet Research Agency -- a well-known troll farm -- utilized all major social media platforms, and its efforts online included messaging in support of Stein's third party presidential effort.
CNN has reached out to Stein for comment on the report.

The mentions of Stein online came alongside related and disparate messages noted throughout the report, which said the Internet Research Agency's themes ranged from support for Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders and the Black Lives Matter movement to the Tea Party and gun rights.

A summation of the report's findings on "comprehensive anti-Hillary Clinton operations" said while the group's assumed Twitter personas had some pro-Clinton content, "the developed Left-wing Twitter personas were still largely anti-Clinton and expressed pro-Bernie Sanders and pro-Jill Stein sentiments."

Many here on DU knew as I did at the time that there was something rotten in Denmark with respect to the Jill Stein situation. I do not think the entire campaign was a scam but the Russians certainly saw it as a way to help them win in the end by hurting HRC.

Maybe that dinner in Moscow w Putin and Mike Flynn was what it appeared to be.

"We Need to Destroy the Republican Party" - David Corn interviews Max Boot

“We Need to Destroy the Republican Party”: A Conservative Luminary Calls for a Clean Start
In which Max Boot says the GOP is racist, the Iraq War was wrong, and Trumpism is a cancer.

Read here (podcast and transcript): https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/10/destroy-the-republican-party-max-boot-calls-for-a-clean-start/

A great quote from the article that sums up the state of the GOP today:
"Before Donald Trump, the Republican Party was a majority conservative party with a white nationalist fringe. Now it’s a white nationalist party with a conservative fringe."


Denial is not just a river in Egypt. The evidence was and still is there for anyone who will open their eyes.

This blog seems really suspect to me

It has many of the hallmarks of a fake news site. Maybe Fake News is not the right term. It could for example just be a click farm, or a quick money making effort, as they do use generic ad services to monetize traffic.

For example:
- They don't list the names of any of their contributors:
http://thebluewavecommunity.com/about/
- RED FLAG: They do not include links to the stories they post about, while almost all of the posts are based on or about stories originating on other sites.
- I saw NO way to JOIN or SIGN UP (so it's not a community, while Community is in the name)
- I saw No Comments on any posts
- Traffic: Their Aleaxa traffic Ranking suggests their traffic has only recently spiked up (but significantly)
https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/thebluewavecommunity.com#trafficstats
- Their Facebook page has 280,320 followers yet and only started in mid-Dec 2016. Ther is a good deal of posts on the feed/community
https://www.facebook.com/pg/thebluewavecommunity/community/?ref=page_internal
- Twitter: I was unable to find a Twitter account under @thebluewavecommunity or @bluewavecommunity, and there is only 1 tweet listing the #TheBlueWaveCommunity hashtag


It could be a 100% legitimate site of course but I am highly suspect.



Please share your words of remembrance for Political Career of Steve Bannon

New Study Reveals The IQ Of Republicans In America

Liberals have always agreed that conservatives suffer from a low IQ, and Donald Trump and his supporters have certainly cemented that belief. However, does science (the thing conservatives don’t believe in) come to that same agreement? Opinion is one thing. Facts are what matter.

Science does, in fact, prove that Republicans suffer from a lower IQ. The “Bright Minds and Dark Attitudes” study found that a person’s intelligence as a child could predict conservative and racist ideas as an adult.
