NEVADA's Firewall against Trump. Tweets & Pics from late night voting


Nevada is Building That Firewall Against Donald Trump

Mark the date: Friday, November 4th 2016...the night the people of Nevada rose up and stood in line to save America from the orange menace.

Jon Ralston @RalstonReports
They just extended voting hours at a Mexican supermarket to 10 PM. Close to 1,000 voters in line. If you have a panic button GOP, find it.
10:04 PM - 4 Nov 2016

When they go low, we turnout

Current voter count in Clark with at least an hour left:

Record keeps getting higher.
11:19 PM - 4 Nov 2016

Yvanna Cancela @ydc226
The end. #earlyvote is officially over in NV. That's one proud @Culinary226 member.

"Heroes. Each and every one.
It's now safe to say that Trump won't win Nevada. And without Nevada, any realistic longshot path to the presidency slips even further away from him."

Donald Trump Released a Plan to Privatize Americaís Roads and Bridges

While You Weren’t Looking, Donald Trump Released a Plan to Privatize America’s Roads and Bridges
By Jordan Weissmann


Of course, it‘s not really free. Americans would just end up paying for the construction a bit later on.

Under Trump's plan—at least as it's written (more on that in a minute)—the federal government would offer tax credits to private investors interested in funding large infrastructure projects, who would put down some of their own money up front, then borrow the rest on the private bond markets.
They would eventually earn their profits on the back end from usage fees, such as highway and bridge tolls (if they built a highway or bridge) or higher water rates (if they fixed up some water mains).

So instead of paying for their new roads at tax time, Americans would pay for them during their daily commute.
And of course, all these private developers would earn a nice return at the end of the day.

The second sweep, according to the Democratic officials, found a radio signal near the chairman's office that indicated there might be a listening device outside the office.
"We were told that this was something that could pick up calls from cellphones," a DNC official says.
"The guys who did the sweep said it was a strong indication."
No device was recovered. No possible culprits were identified.

The DNC sent a report with the technical details to the FBI, according to the DNC officials. "We believe it's been given by the bureau to another agency with three letters to examine," the DNC official says. "We're not supposed to talk about it."

A Democratic consultant who has done work for the DNC, who asked not to be identified, says he was recently informed about the suspected bugging.

The DNC officials will not say what countermeasures were subsequently taken. "As a general policy, we don't talk about such efforts," the other DNC official says.
But this official adds, "You have to take all of this incredibly seriously."
The first DNC official notes, "We are the oldest political party in this country, and we are under constant attack from Russia and/or maybe others."

This is a bit fishy..maybe a bit CT but considering what we now know of the FBI...
"No device was recovered. No possible culprits were identified"

Maybe the FBI rats were the ones that bugged the DNC & blamed it on an unreachable foreign hacking group.

"Back to Watergate?"

Rudy Ruined It. Democrats Call For Probe Of FBI Leaks About Clinton After Rudy Giulianiís Comments


Democrats Call For Probe Of FBI Leaks About Clinton After Rudy Giuliani’s Comments
“It is absolutely unacceptable for the FBI to leak unsubstantiated — and in some cases false — information about one presidential candidate to benefit the other candidate.”

Ryan J. Reilly Senior Justice Reporter, The Huffington Post

WASHINGTON ― Two House Democrats asked the Justice Department’s internal watchdog on Friday to investigate leaks of information about the FBI investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

In a letter to the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General, Reps. Elijah Cummings (Md.) and John Conyers (Mich.) cited comments from former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who said Friday that he obtained information about the FBI’s Clinton investigation long before Director James Comey sent a letter to members of Congress last Friday about new emails that may have been relevant to the Clinton probe.
Giuliani is an adviser to GOP nominee Donald Trump and a former top federal prosecutor.
