Lindsey Graham suggests 2020 election will be decided by the Supreme Court and not voters.

Go fuck yourself, Lindsey....

“As a Republican, I am ready to accept any decision of the court as to the outcome of the election and there is no alternative than a peaceful transition of power.”

— Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), quoted by Fox News, suggesting the 2020 presidential election will be decided by the Supreme Court and not voters.

FBI has not seen evidence of widespread voter fraud, Director Wray tells senators

Source: CNBC

FBI Director Christopher Wray said Thursday that the bureau has not seen evidence of widespread voting fraud, an assertion that undercuts President Donald Trump’s recent warnings about the integrity of the election.

“We have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise,” Wray told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

Wray’s remarks come a day after Trump again claimed, without evidence, that mail-in voting is susceptible to massive fraud, perhaps by foreign adversaries. The president refused Wednesday to commit to a peaceful transition of power if Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins the November election, citing concerns about “the ballots.”

WED, SEP 23 2020

President Donald Trump refused Wednesday to commit to a peaceful transition of power if he loses the 2020 election to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

...

The president had been asked by a reporter if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power, “win, lose or draw.”

When the reporter noted that “people are rioting,” Trump replied: “Get rid of the ballots, and you’ll have a very – you’ll have a very peaceful – there won’t be a transfer, frankly, there’ll be a continuation.”


“The ballots are out of control,” Trump said, adding, “The Democrats know it better than anybody else.”

Whopping 59 Percent of Americans Would 'Distrust' Covid Vaccine Released Before Election

Whopping 59 Percent of Americans Would ‘Distrust’ Covid Vaccine Released Before Election — Including HALF of Republicans

By Tommy Christopher

An overwhelming and bipartisan majority of Americans say they would “distrust” any coronavirus vaccine that was released before Election Day in November.

According to an Economist/YouGov poll released Thursday, concerns about the safety and efficacy of a COVID-19 vaccine released in time for the election abound.

Respondents to the poll were asked “If the government announced there was a COVID-19 vaccine right before the election, how much would you trust that the vaccine would be safe and effective?”

Among all respondents, 59 percent said they would either “distrust somewhat” or “distrust completely” the safety and efficacy of such a vaccine — with 36 percent saying they would completely distrust it.

And while there is partisan disagreement on a number of coronavirus-related issues, 50 percent of Republicans agree with the majority that a pre-Election Day vaccine would not be trustworthy.

New Woodward audio reveals Trump focused on the stock market instead of COVID-19

What we already knew....

Listen: Trump Touts Stock Market Recovery Over Covid Reaction in Newly Released Woodward Audio

By Colby HallSep 14th, 2020, 1:36 pm


CNN’s Jamie Gangel is not just a well-respected reporter and longtime Beltway insider. She also appears to have a friendly working relationship with Bob Woodward, as she has been at the center of on-the-record audio recordings with President Donald Trump used for the new tell-all Rage. Newly obtained audio dropped at noon on Monday revealed the president remained focused on the stock market index even as the death toll from Covid-19 dramatically grew.


<...>

Gangel then introduced another portion of the recording in which Trump claims “nothing could have been done,” and “I acted early.”

Trump then asked Woodward, “So you think the virus totally supersedes the economy?” to which the author replied, “Oh sure. But they’re related, as you know.” Trump agreed with “a little bit,” which appeared to surprise Woodward.

“I mean, more than a little bit, but the economy is doing, look …we are close to a new stock market record.”

Whistleblower: The Trump Administration has been performing medical experiments on ICE detainees

‘Like an Experimental Concentration Camp’: Whistleblower Complaint Alleges Mass Hysterectomies at ICE Detention Center

JERRY LAMBE
Sep 14th, 2020, 12:58 pm


Several legal advocacy groups on Monday filed a whistleblower complaint on behalf of a nurse at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center documenting “jarring medical neglect” within the facility, including a refusal to test detainees for the novel coronavirus and an exorbitant rate of hysterectomies being performed on immigrant women.

The nurse, Dawn Wooten, was employed at the Irwin County Detention Center (ICDC) in Georgia, which is operated by LaSalle Corrections, a private prison company. The complaint was filed with the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) by advocacy groups Project South, Georgia Detention Watch, Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, and South Georgia Immigrant Support Network.

Multiple women came forward to tell Project South about what they perceived to be the inordinate rate at which women in ICDC were subjected to hysterectomies – a surgical operation in which all or part of the uterus is removed. Additionally, many of the immigrant women who underwent the procedure were reportedly “confused” when asked to explain why they had the surgery, with one detainee likening their treatment to prisoners in concentration camps.

<...>

“When I met all these women who had had surgeries, I thought this was like an experimental concentration camp. It was like they’re experimenting with our bodies,” the detainee said.

As useless as tits on a bull: Chuckie Todd compares Trump's coronavirus scandal to Hillary's emails

How many people died because of Hillary's emails?

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Compares Trump Coronavirus, War Dead Scandals to Hillary Email Story

By Tommy Christopher


MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and The New York Times’ Peter Baker analogized scandals like President Donald Trump’s current coronavirus-related political difficulties and alleged comments about U.S. war dead to the intense coverage of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server four years ago.

Much of the media’s reaction to the blockbuster Bob Woodward recordings — which revealed that Trump knew in early February that the virus was much more deadly than the seasonal flu, yet continued to “downplay” the threat — has centered around gaming out the political effect of deceiving the American people about a pandemic that has killed over 190,000 of them.

Tump encourages his supporters to harass the widow of Steve Jobs

In an early Sunday morning tweet, Donald Trump retweeted a post stating the Laurene Powell Jobs — widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs — donated at least $500,000 to Joe Biden’s campaign this year and urges his followers to contact her and express their displeasure.

According to the president, “Steve Jobs would not be happy that his wife is wasting money he left her on a failing Radical Left Magazine that is run by a con man (Goldberg) and spews FAKE NEWS & HATE. Call her, write her, let her know how you feel!!!”
