Trump Supporter Arrested For Requesting Absentee Ballot For Dead Mother


Although actual cases of people impersonating a registered voter in order to artificially alter vote totals are infinitesimally rare, Trump has repeatedly claimed, without evidence, that mail-in voting, which states have made more available this election cycle due to COVID-19, is a magnet for “fraud.”

But to the extent that “voter fraud” is a problem this year, Trump might want to take a closer look at his own supporters.

Robert R. Lynn, a registered Republican and Trump supporter in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly requesting an absentee ballot for his mother, who died in 2015.

Lynn, 67, is a resident of Luzerne County, a largely white, working-class, political bellwether that Barack Obama won twice, but which swung hard for Trump in 2016. Lynn is being charged with voter fraud and forgery for faking his deceased mother’s signature on the absentee ballot request form.

County prosecutors have told local news outlets that it is the first case of alleged voter fraud in the county in three decades. County election authorities flagged the ballot request as suspicious in September, triggering the investigation that led to Lynn’s arrest. Lynn allegedly first denied the allegations to detectives, before admitting to the deed.

North Carolina man arrested after he’s discovered with guns, explosives in plot to assassinate Joe Biden


Alexander Hillel Treisman was arrested in late May outside of Kannapolis, North Carolina after plotting to assassinate former Vice President Joe Biden and carry out an act of terrorism, reported WBTV News.

It’s the second assassination plot to kill Biden that the public is aware of this year.

The North Carolina Middle District Court shows that there was an arrest warrant issued on June 10, 2020 and Treisman appears to have attempted to seal the indictments.

According to the report, a federal judge argued that Treisman should remain behind bars on child pornography charges, but the evidence outlined in the indictment describes more an act of terrorism and assassination than abusive images on his electronics.

Sanders: Democrats will pass 'massive stimulus bill' if party flips the Senate

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) pledged Thursday that Democrats will pass a huge coronavirus relief package if they win the Senate in next month's elections.


“If the Democrats gain control of the Senate, the first order of business will be a massive stimulus bill to protect desperate working people throughout this country,” Sanders said on Hill.TV’s “Rising.”

The remarks come as Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin press on in their negotiations on COVID-19 aid. Pelosi has stuck to her position that a stimulus package must total at least $2.2 trillion, while the administration has inched up to $1.8 trillion.

Both sides have said progress has been made in the past week, though no final legislation has materialized.

President Trump has urged the two sides to “go big,” but disagreements have emerged over aid to state and local governments, which the president calls a slush fund to bail out what he says are poorly run Democratic localities.

And Republicans in the Senate have expressed pessimism that they can get enough votes to pass a bill that goes beyond $500 billion due to concerns in the conference over the ballooning national debt.

Sanders said Senate Republicans’ hesitation to go for anything larger than $500 billion is “pathetic” but that he too has concerns over a potential bill, saying a deal must include a boost to unemployment benefits and another round of stimulus checks.

New Poll Confirms That High Youth Turnout Would Doom Trump


Republicans have long known that America’s rising generations were going to be a problem for their party. The only questions have been “How big?” and “How soon?”

The bulk of Americans born between 1981 and 1996 saw Bill Clinton preside over an age of (relative) peace and prosperity — and then George W. Bush steer their nation into failed wars and economic collapse. Zoomers, meanwhile, are coming of age amid, well, [gestures broadly at a landscape littered with foreclosed houses, police executions, pandemic breadlines, and melting ice sheets, all watched over by a billionaire Fox News addict who’s focused on his tweets].

Political science research suggests that a voter’s partisan preferences tend to be deeply informed by their evaluations of presidential performance in adolescence and early adulthood. Americans who came of age during the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon presidencies leaned Democratic for years after. Those who attained a sense of self amid Jimmy Carter’s losing battle against stagflation — and/or Ronald Reagan’s boom times — remained disproportionately Republican as they aged.

Former Google CEO: Social networks serving as 'amplifiers for idiots and crazy people'


Former Google Chief Executive Officer Eric Schmidt predicted social networks will be regulated "unless the industry gets its act together in a really clever way," with Schmidt arguing that the context of such platforms serve as "amplifiers for idiots and crazy people."

“The context of social networks serving as amplifiers for idiots and crazy people is not what we intended,” Schmidt said at a virtual conference hosted by The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday.

“Unless the industry gets its act together in a really clever way, there will be regulation,” he added.

Schmidt, who still is one of Google's largest shareholders after leaving the board of Google’s parent Alphabet Inc. last year, also said that an antitrust lawsuit the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed against the search giant on Tuesday was misguided, but still could result in regulation, given increased scrutiny of the industry.

The DOJ alleged Google is illegally operating a monopoly on search and search advertising in a lawsuit filed in District of Columbia federal court.

The suit argues that Google, through exclusive contracts with mobile phone companies, is at a decided advantage over its competition when phone makers preload its search engine onto devices using Google Android's operating system.

Ghislaine Maxwell transcripts revealed in Jeffrey Epstein sex abuse case


Transcripts released Thursday show convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girlfriend was combative and defensive under tough questioning four years ago about her now-deceased ex-boyfriend’s interactions with underage girls.

In the transcripts, Ghislaine Maxwell repeatedly denied hiring anyone under the age of 18 for the financier.

“I never saw any inappropriate underage activities with Jeffrey ever,” she said.

Manhattan U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska had ordered the transcripts of seven hours of depositions of Maxwell released by 9 a.m. Thursday.

Preska allowed release of the transcripts after rejecting arguments from Maxwell’s lawyers that the interviews for a defamation lawsuit brought against Maxwell by an Epstein victim several years ago would jeopardize a fair criminal trial for her next July.
