Remember the stories about Hillary Clinton's health-these rumors are due to Corsi and Stone

At one point there were a dozen or so pizzagate on JPR. After we laughed at JPR about believing this story, JPR banned pizzagate stories which stories were replaces with dozens of threads about Clinton being in ill health or Clinton being about to die It seems that these threads were started in large part by Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone after a WikiLeaks tip

Russia through wikileakes pushed these stories and JPR was happy to promote these lies

Jose Andres is nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, congressman confirms

I would love to see Chef Andrés win this award if for no other reason than to see trump pissed off https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/food/wp/2018/11/26/jose-andres-is-nominated-for-the-2019-nobel-peace-prize-congressman-confirms/?utm_term=.65bbfc585a12

Ever since José Andrés and his small nonprofit group took it upon themselves to feed hungry Puerto Ricans following the near-knockout punch of Hurricane Maria last year, the celebrity chef’s name has been whispered in talk about potential nominees for a Nobel Peace Prize. Today, Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) confirmed that he has nominated the restaurateur and humanitarian for the 2019 award....

The Washington Post obtained some of the language from Delaney’s nomination submission for Andrés. In the section where the congressman explained why he nominated Andrés, Delaney wrote:
“Because of Mr. Andrés’s work, millions of people have been fed. This is the most basic human need and Mr. Andrés has proven to be world-class in this essential humanitarian field. With an incredible spirit and an innovative mind, Mr. Andrés is solving one of the world’s ancient problems and supplying world leaders with a new road map to provide more effective disaster relief in the future.”

When reached by phone, Andrés characteristically downplayed the nomination.

trump is convinced that he is entitled to the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing.

Trump's latest bad judicial nominee-Farr-WaPo Obtains 1991 DOJ Memo on Jesse Helms "Ballot Security

The GOP ballot security program was a program designed to keep non-whites from voting. Farr is the person who wrote the North Carolina voter suppression laws that were struck down. He is bad news for voting rights and should be rejected. Here is an excerpt from a Washington Post article on this asshole that was posted on Prof. Hasen's election law blog https://electionlawblog.org/?p=102504
Farr worked on the 1990 campaign of Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), which came under scrutiny for distributing postcards that the Justice Department later said were sent to intimidate black voters from heading to the polls.

The postcard issue has become one factor in the unusually bitter nomination fight. In response to questions from Democrats, Farr has denied any role in drafting the postcards and said he did not know about it until after the mailers were sent, saying he was “appalled” when he found out about them.

A 1991 Justice Department document newly obtained by The Washington Post sheds some light on Helms’s campaign and the state Republican Party’s broader “ballot security” program, of which the postcards were one component. Farr served as a lead lawyer for Helms.

The DOJ document, called a justification memo, elaborates on a meeting disclosed by Farr in a letter to Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) this year. In that five-page letter, Farr said he participated in a “ballot security” meeting of the Helms campaign in October 1990 in which he said there was no need to do a card mailing because returned cards could no longer be used to challenge voter legitimacy.

The DOJ document obtained by The Post outlined the basis for the DOJ complaint against the Helms campaign and the North Carolina Republican Party for the more than 120,000 postcards sent primarily to black voters that officials said were an attempt to dissuade them from voting.

At the meeting, Farr told others that there was a limited number of ballot security initiatives that the groups could undertake at that point in the race, according to the memo. He also said because the current Republican governor could tap a majority of county election officials statewide, the need for a ballot security program that year was lessened because “they would ensure a fair election process for Republican candidates.”

During the meeting, participants also reviewed the Helms campaign’s 1984 ballot security effort Farr had coordinated “with an eye toward the activities that should be undertaken in 1990,” the DOJ wrote in the memo. The document did not say directly whether the controversial postcards were discussed as part of that effort, and Farr has repeatedly denied any prior knowledge of those mailers.

Judge: Voter Fraud Alarmist Group Can't Drag Election Officials Into Lawsuit It's Facing

J. Christian Adams is a really bad lawyer who was hired improperly by the Bush DOJ. This is the idiot who pushed the New Black Panther stupidity. This idiot also represents the Kings Street Patriots and True the Vote. In addition this idiot was also a member of trump's bogus voter fraud commission that fell apart.

This ruling amuses me https://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/judge-voter-fraud-alarmist-group-cant-drag-election-officials-into-lawsuit-its-facing

A group led by a former member of President Trump’s voter fraud commission failed in its effort to drag Virginia election officials into a lawsuit it is facing over misleading reports it produced claiming mass voter fraud.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation — which is led by J. Christian Adams, an advocate for stricter voting laws — had filed what’s known as a third-party complaint in the lawsuit.

A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed the third-party complaint, which had been brought against the Virginia Department of Elections by PILF. The group had argued that the elections officials should be liable for whatever damages were found in the lawsuit since it was their voter registration data on which the group had based its reports, known as “Alien Invasion” and “Alien Invasion II.”

PILF had previously failed in its attempt to get the entire lawsuit thrown out. The lawsuit alleges the group engaged in voter intimidation and defamation by claiming hundreds of people were non-citizens illegally registered to vote. The reports included appendixes that not only named these individuals, but in some cases included their addresses and other personal information.
