Voting: have we forgotten that Texas voting machines were flipping votes to Ted Cruz?

This is outrageous and everyone is just sitting around like it never happened.

https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/negayg/texas-voting-machines-have-been-a-known-problem-for-a-decade

Texas voters experiencing issues with voting machines used in that state have been told by election officials that they are the problem, not the machines. The state says voters are inadvertently touching the machines in ways they shouldn't, causing the machines to alter or delete their vote in the hotly contested senate race between Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke.

.....

The issue in the senate race has occurred when voters chose the option to vote a straight-party ticket—that is, to vote for only candidates from a specified party. Depending on whether the voter indicates they want to vote Democrat or Republican, the machine will automatically populate all races with candidates in the chosen party. But the multiple-page ballot can take several seconds to complete—in Houston the ballot runs 16 pages long. The Secretary of State and county election officials have blamed the issue on voters touching the machines while the systems are still rendering the ballot on screen—thereby inadvertently de-selecting their vote in the critical senate race. They say voters who touch the "enter" button while the system is still filling out the ballot can cause the machine to de-select their chosen candidate or change the vote to the other candidate in the race. ....

Leah McElrath, a freelance writer who specializes in political analysis, is one voter who experienced the problem in Houston. She waited 45 minutes in line to cast her ballot, she told Motherboard in a phone interview, and when she got to the machine, she selected the option to vote a straight-party Democratic ticket. She's positive the first page of the ballot then showed a vote cast for O'Rourke because when she saw the machine highlight his name, she says she did "a happy dance" in her head. But when she got to the review screen at the end of the ballot, she saw that the machine had given her vote to Cruz instead. McElrath says she did manually change some of her selections on the ballot to Republican candidates after the machine filled out her straight-party choices—something the machine allows voters to do—but insists she didn't do this in the senate race.

If the Mueller Report "totally exonerates" him, why does he need or want Executive Privilege??

are we to believe that trump is NOT cooking the books on the jobs numbers?

he corrupts everyone who works for them.

he orders them to lie and break the law.

CERTAINLY he has told the Labor Department to deliver a number to his liking.

There is probably 0% chance any numbers released by his administration are not a lie.

So important - Judd Legum explains: "WTF is going on with Trump's social media accounts?"

https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1124661987546468352.html


1. WTF is going on with Trump's social media accounts?

Let me explain in plain English.


2. Social media is central to Trump's reelection strategy. He made the guy in charge of his 2016 social media strategy, @parscale, his 2020 campaign manager.

Trump is spending 500K per week on Facebook and Google and he doesn't even have an opponent yet.


3. Trump's strategy on social media, particularly Facebook, involves him breaking all of the platform rules.

They bragged about this last time -- suppressing African-American votes with fake information
This time they started targeting seniors w/fake promises about the border.


4. But after all the criticism of 2016 Facebook is more sensitive now about how its platform is being used for elections.

When I pointed out hundreds of rules violations by the Trump campaign, Facebook acted and took the ads down
UPDATE: Facebook admits it ran hundreds of Trump campaign ads that violate Facebook rules


5. This is what is unacceptable to Trump.

He needs to be a VICTIM of Facebook censorship so that it's IMPOSSIBLE for Facebook to enforce their own rules


6. So Trump took a routine announcement by Facebook it was permanently banning several accounts that traffic in racism and conspiracy theories and made it a HUGE DEAL.

It makes him the victim again.
Facebook banned dozens of liberal last year on thinner grounds w/no fanfare


7. Trump's goal is to make Facebook's rules UNENFORCEABLE.

In Trump's mind there is no difference between NBC and InfoWars and if Facebook tries to create one its CENSORSHIP.
That's the political space he needs to operate.


8. The problem is that the media is complicit. There is almost no coverage of how Trump is spending money online

I'm filling in the gap w/my newsletter, Popular Information. I spend hours reviewing the Trump's social media ads

9. A big part of the problem is the social media company themselves. Twitter, Facebook and Google won't enforce their rules.

They are scared are regulation and Trump is a very good customer. They have every incentive not to act.


10. In the meantime, what's happening online in advance of 2020 is shaping up to be even worse than 2016.

---------------

If you are on twitter you surely noticed all major right-wing twitter accounts are 100% aligned and pushing this "censorship" message hard for the past 24 hours at least. Harassment and bald threats at @CNN and other media is a part of what they are doing right now.

#4 political advert on FB last week: trump-aligned EpochTimes spreading Biden-Ukraine conspiracy

https://www.anotheracronym.org/newsletter/where-are-they-now/



Donald Trump’s campaign digital spending ticked up slightly over the past week, and he’s now spent over $8.5 million on Google and Facebook since the midterms.

....


We noticed The Epoch Times, an international news outlet with a pro-Trump bias was one of the top spenders of the week on Facebook. Last week, it ran hundreds of Facebook ads (some of which are still active) boosting Donald Trump and floating conspiracy theories about Joe Biden…and they even promised a free poster. Here are a few of their ads:
