Nine Ways the U.S. Voting System Is Rigged But Not Against Donald Trump

Donald Trump is right — the U.S. voting system is totally rigged!

It’s not rigged against him, though. It’s rigged against people without much money, and people who are members of any number of minority groups.

Some of the rigging is by design, and dates all the way back to the Founding Fathers. Some of it is simply a byproduct of an economic system where the top 0.1 percent have almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. Some falls somewhere in between.

Add it all up, and it constitutes a gigantic obstacle to regular people using their purported power to run our purported democracy.

DON'T BE FOOLED: 'Synagogue Shooter,' 'Synagogue Vandal' ARE DIFFERENT PEOPLE

I just thought that it should be made clear the day before the elections that whatever motivated the 26 year old queer, African-American Democrat raised by Jewish foster parents to commit a hate crime against the Jewish community, that crime WAS NOT murder, but vandalism; the Tree of Life shooting massacre, by a 46 year old, avowed member of hate groups farthest to the right in American politics, is a different incident entirely.

Crimes against property may be thought morally inappropriate means to some end by misguided individuals. Murder is unforgivable.

With Brazil’s Bolsonaro, Israel finds another natural partner on the far-right

Jonathan Cook argues that Israel’s leaders are not simply placating a new wave of white-nationalist and neo-fascist leaders, from Brazil and the US to Central and Eastern Europe, but have a deep-rooted ideological sympathy with them.>>

Israeli forces raid Jerusalem governor’s office

Israeli forces on Sunday raided the Jerusalem governor’s office in the occupied West Bank, according to local residents.

“An Israeli force stormed the governor’s office in the town of al-Ram, northeast of Jerusalem, and searched it,” a local resident told Anadolu Agency.

He said Israeli soldiers assaulted a number of employees inside the office.

According to Palestinian medical sources, three people suffered temporary asphyxiation from teargas canisters fired by Israeli forces and were treated on the spot.

The Israeli raid was quickly condemned by the Ramallah-based Palestinian government.

In a statement, government spokesman Yousef al-Mahmoud described the raid as a “dangerous escalation and a flagrant violation of all agreements and international law”.

The spokesman went on to hold the Israeli government responsible for “the repercussions of these assaults”.

The Trump ad that CNN said it wouldn't air because it was racist, and that NBC pulled this morning, is still running on Facebook right now.

MARK DICE ON TWITTER: "CNN is trying to incite people to harass Facebook and TV networks to stop them from running Trump campaign ads. Jobs not Mobs, scumbag."

CNN Writer Suggests Women Go On A 'Sex Strike' Ahead Of The Midterm Elections

A writer for CNN's opinion section suggested Saturday that women should consider withholding "service sex" from their partners in order to influence them to vote for "women's equality" in Tuesday's midterm elections.
Wednesday Martin, whom CNN bills as a "cultural critic," writes on the news network's "CNN opinion" site that women, now more than ever, need to reclaim the power they wield through sexual intercourse to force men to confront gender inequality. Somehow, Martin posits, this will eventually lead to a more equitable society (though, it seems, her premise seems to rely on women believing in lockstep that "voting for Democrats" is a path to "equality").

Racist Gaffe Shows Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly’s True Leftist Colors

On Tuesday, PBS hosted the final Indiana Senate debate pitting Democrat incumbent Joe Donnelly against his Republican challenger Mike Braun and Libertarian opponent Lucy Brenton. The hour-long debate boasted few surprises policy-wise, yet prompted an unforced error when the embattled sitting senator put on display his racism of low expectations.

The misstep occurred when Donnelly attempted to showcase the diversity of his staff, telling Hoosiers: "We want everybody to have a chance in Indiana and in America, and my offices reflect that—both on the campaign side and on the Senate side. Our state director is Indian America, but he does an amazing job. Our director of all constituent services, she’s African American, but she does an even more incredible job than you can ever imagine."

Watchdog files FOIA lawsuit over records on Hillary Clinton's security clearance

Filed earlier this week by Judicial Watch, the lawsuit also seeks all records related to four of Clinton's top aides from her time leading the department.

Clinton’s security clearance was "administratively withdrawn" at "her request" on Aug. 30, according to a letter sent to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa from State Department official Charles Faulkner. Cheryl Mills, who served as Clinton’s chief of staff, and four other individuals, whose names were redacted in the letter, had their access withdrawn in September.

Judicial Watch said Clinton's security clearance was withdrawn nine days after the group filed a FOIA request on Aug. 21 seeking information on her security clearance status.

Rep Louie Gohmert Doubles-Down After Ending Dobbs Segment With ‘It’s Not Anti-Semitic To Criticize [George] Soros’

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert fired back at those who accuse him and others of anti-Semitism for criticizing liberal billionaire financier George Soros.

At the end of a segment on Wednesday night’s "Lou Dobbs Tonight," Gohmert said, "It’s not anti-Semitic to criticize Soros, and Israel issued a statement a year ago saying just that."

Gohmert’s televised comments came less than a week after Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell was banned from Fox-affiliated networks after accusing the "Soros-occupied State Department" of funding the caravan of migrants on its way through Mexico to the United States, a claim that the Texas congressman himself has echoed.

Cory Booker uses anti-Semitic massacre as an excuse to dismiss Palestinians rights

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker says that the Pittsburgh massacre has led him to support the Israel Anti-Boycott Act. He becomes the first politician to use the killings of 11 Jews to take a racist position against Palestinian rights. His move should be described exactly that way, as a cynical use of real antisemitism as an excuse to dismiss Palestinian rights so as to further his political career.

Booker, who is thought to have presidential ambitions, had opposed the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, but last week told Jewish Insider:

“We’ve seen the alarming rise in anti-Semitism in the United States and across the world in recent years manifest itself in many deeply concerning ways, including in the actions of foreign governments targeting Israel and the Israeli people.”

PAPADOPOULOS DETAILS ALLEGED ENTRAPMENT SCHEME BY UNDERCOVER DEEP STATE AGENTS

George Papadopoulos - a central figure and self-admitted dupe in the Obama administration's targeted spying on the Trump campaign, gave a wide-ranging interview to Dan Bongino on Friday, detailing what he claims to have been a setup by deep state operatives across the world in order to ultimately infiltrate the Trump campaign.

Reviewing events

In March 2016, Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud told Papadopoulos - an energy consultant who had recently joined the Trump campaign - that Russia had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton, a claim which Papadopoulos repeated in May 2016 to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer in a London bar. Of note, former FBI Assistant Director of counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, reportedly traveled to London directly before Downer met with Papadopoulos, while a few months later former FBI agent Peter Strzok met with Downer in London directly before the DOJ officially launched their investigation into the Trump campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

2016 and its aftermath, was, undoubtedly, one of the most crooked US campaigns I have seen the Democrats pursue this lifetime; and at 69, I have seen a few!

Not that there haven't been miscreants from the Republican side in a number of elections.

Yesterday in church, I publicly lifted up a prayer asking for an elevation of the tone in this year's campaign through its conclusion.

And I was motivated to do that, in watching a clip, which repeated, ad nauseum, of one of Florida Democratic Governor-candidate's interns screaming obscenities at Republic workers on her college campus, culminating in chocolate milk being thrown at them by the intern.. Gillum Intern arrested for throwing chocolate milk at college Republicans

It appears that whatever she is studying is an absolute, pathetic waste; otherwise, she would understand that this is the kind of behaviour one associates with primates, but absolutely not with truly self-actualized human beings.

Why Chimpanzees throw poop at us.

So THIS is the future of this country, where conflict resolution consists of throwing obscenities, followed by food, at someone with whose politics you don't agree?!?

IF that is what what Representative Maxine Waters wanted, when she talked about "confrontation, then congratulations, my dear, your wish has been fulfilled, and by a Sister Democrat, no less!!

You should immediately build a shrine dedicated to her in your living room (In tony LA's Brentwood, I believe, which is not even remotely close to the district you allegedly represent) where you can worship this person, and all who consider her a heroine, because they have taken your comments, or will take them... literally.

But I must also add a caveat on this to President Trump, who found the issue of a reporter getting badly injured in a body-slam, funny. President Trump finds reporter injured by a body slam, funny

Mr. Trump, as someone who is recovering from a compression spinal fracture, and experiencing her 11th month of convalescence from the time of the initiating event, I can assure you that this is anything but funny.

So to all my brother and sister Americans either poised to vote, or who have already voted, no matter your party affiliation please: cage the rage!! You are being duped, bamboozled, and are getting misdirected from the genuine, and pressing issues which really concern all of us this year, going into 2019.

Report Is Released And It Spells Trouble For Her

This is not good news for Christine Blasey Ford.

After raking in a million dollars in donations from a GoFundMe campaign, and as she shops offers for a book detailing allegations of an assault she can not remember, things just got worse for her.

On Saturday Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley released the committee’s report on her allegations and what did it find?

There is “no evidence to support the allegations.”

Why deepfakes are a real threat to elections and society

Deepfakes are a new breed of fake videos that use artificial intelligence (AI) to make a falsified video virtually undetectable by swapping out someone's face and voice with an imposter's. The consensus among researchers is that deepfakes will eventually be used to impact a political election, whether this year or in the near future.

This is much more than a Photoshopped meme or a fake news story. With deepfake videos, algorithms are used to recognize actual audio or visual aspects of a person and then, just as with a fake photo, an actual video of that person is doctored to replace what they really said or did with a false video clip that perfectly mimics them. It's nearly impossible to know that the video isn't real.

Victory for San Francisco State professor over pro-Israel lawfare suit

After three attempts at litigation, pro-Israel lawfare strategists have failed to silence a Palestinian American professor at San Francisco State University.

On Monday, a federal judge in San Francisco finally dismissed a frivolous lawsuit against professor Rabab Abdulhadi and the university over her Palestine research and criticisms of Israel, which was filed as part of a years-long targeted bullying campaign intended to censor and threaten professors and students who advocate for Palestinian rights.

Judge William Orrick III “this time dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning the lawsuit cannot be filed again,” said Palestine Legal on Tuesday.

Democrats Emerging As Post-American Party

America is so divided, even the political clichés don’t work anymore. In professional wrestling, it’s called a “cheap pop”—an unnecessary reference to the home town designed to get the audience to give an automatic cheer. Politicians do the same by praising the history of whatever state or community they are in. But in post-America, the quickest path to popularity among the Left is to bash your own state—and receive the praise of the Main Stream Media for your courage.

Last Politico/Morning Consult Poll Before Midterm Elections Gives Democrats Only Slight Lead

The last generic ballot poll to be released before the midterm elections shows an increasingly tight contest between congressional Republican and Democrats, giving the party of Nancy Pelosi only a smidgen of a lead heading into election day.

Any election observer will tell you that the only poll that actually matters is the ballot box count after the polls are closed. I agree with that sentiment, as I have no idea how tomorrow’s hundreds of elections will turn out. However, opinion polls are still a good way of gauging the country’s overall mood, and right now, things don’t look great for Democrats.

DOJ Investigates 'Mystery' Goldman Executive Involved In $4.5 Billion 1MDB Fraud

Last week, the DOJ filed the first round of criminal charges related to the massive international fraud that was the 1MDB scandal. US prosecutors allege that more than $4.5 billion was embezzled from the sovereign wealth fund, which was set up by the government of disgraced former Prime Minister Najib Razak, eventually leading the ransacked government fund to a default on nearly $2 billion of local currency bonds, briefly denting the value of the Malaysian ringgit. Holders of those bonds are still working on a restructuring deal with the fund. Meanwhile, former Goldman Sachs Southeast Asia Chief Tim Leissner has pleaded guilty to fraud charges and is expected to cooperate with authorities against other more-senior officials at the bank. One of his fellow bankers, Roger Ng, was arrested by Malaysian police and is expected to be extradited to the US.

New Federal Documents Confirm More State Dept Ties To George Soros  

More documents are out exposing the fact that the Clinton State Department under Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah were using your tax dollars to fund the work of George Soros, and we have Judicial Watch to thank for it.

As the FBI and other departments in the executive branch have to continually be sued to obtain what they are lawfully supposed to provide, President Donald Trump has taken notice of them dragging their feet in response to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, particularly from Judicial Watch.

Trump tweeted, “Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities. FBI said they won’t give up even one (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding? McCabe wife took big campaign dollars from Hillary people…..”

Support For Israel 'Continues To Drop' Among US Liberals, Youth

Only 25 percent of US liberals view Israel as an ally, poll shows, as issue of support becomes increasingly partisan.

In February 2017, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked expressed concern about "decreasing support for Israel in the Democratic party", telling her Jewish American audience that the problem was "a strategic issue" for Israel.

"I couldn't sleep after I saw a poll two weeks ago", she added.

A new US poll on the same topic will not help Shaked rest easy.>>>
