    Miles Taylor the person behind Republicans against Trump and the Anonymous Trump Letter has been revealed

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrews.../#1de7ca456b3b

    TOPLINE President Donald Trump on Thursday continued his all-out assault on former Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff Miles Taylor – who revealed Tuesday he was behind an anonymous New York Times op-ed in 2018 about internal resistance to the president within the administration – warning “bad things” will happen to him and calling for both him and the Times to be prosecuted.

    Trump initially called for Taylor to be prosecuted for writing the op-ed and an anonymous book expanding on it during a rally in Arizona on Wednesday, calling him a “low-level employee” who never worked in the White House and was “quickly removed from his job a long time ago.”

    Taylor began as a senior advisor at DHS in 2017, ascending to the positions of deputy chief of staff later that year and then chief of staff, a job which he said involved briefing Trump in the White House, before resigning in June 2019.

    At a rally in Florida on Thursday, Trump said there should be “major criminal liability” for Taylor – who he claimed left his position with “nothing but praise for the Trump – calling him “treasonous” and urging Google to fire him because “bad things are going to happen to him.”

    Trump also called for the Times to be prosecuted for unspecified charges, calling the op-ed, written by Taylor, "fake news made up by the New York Times."

    Trump claimed on Thursday that he “never even heard of” Taylor despite tweeting about him in August and claiming in February to know the identity of the op-ed author, telling reporters at the time, “I can’t tell you that… We won’t get into it.”

    Taylor is far from the only political opponent Trump has called to prosecute in recent months. Trump has long called for Justice Department and Senate probes into his enemies, including former FBI Director Jim Comey, former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden, his Democratic opponent in the presidential election. Trump has also taken a hard line on leakers, calling them “traitors and cowards” and launching numerous internal probes into various leaks.

    CHIEF CRITIC
    “The state of open dissent in America: the President derides critics as “traitors” and “treasonous”; threatens to “prosecute” & “lock them up”; and ominously warns “bad things” will happen to them,” Taylor tweeted in response to Trump’s warning about “bad things” happening to him. “Is this who we are?”

    SURPRISING FACT
    Despite serving in the Trump administration, Taylor has endorsed Democratic candidate Joe Biden and cut ads for pro-Biden group Republican Voters Against Trump, claiming Trump promised pardons to officials who broke the law, withheld wildfire aid to California over his disdain for the state’s Democratic governor and declared “magical authorities” beyond the law. Taylor is among more than half a dozen former Trump officials – and hundreds of Republican former officials – who have endorsed Biden.

    CRUCIAL QUOTE
    “Many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” Taylor wrote in the op-ed in 2018, declaring “our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.”

    Good Move here.

    SALEM, Ore. -- In what would be a first in the U.S., possession of small amounts of heroin, cocaine, LSD and other hard drugs could be decriminalized in Oregon under a ballot measure that voters are deciding on in Tuesday?s election.

    Measure 110 is one of the most watched initiatives in Oregon because it would drastically change how the state's justice system treats people caught with amounts for their personal use.

    Instead of being arrested, going to trial and facing possible jail time, the users would have the option of paying $100 fines or attending new, free addiction recovery centers.

    The centers would be funded by tax revenue from retail marijuana sales in the state that was the country's first to decriminalize marijuana possession.

    It may sound like a radical concept even in one of the most progressive U.S. states ? but countries including Portugal, the Netherlands and Switzerland have already decriminalized possession of small amounts of hard drugs, according to the United Nations.

    Portugal's 2000 decriminalization brought no surge in drug use. Drug deaths fell while the number of people treated for drug addiction in the country rose 20% from 2001 to 2008 and then stabilized, Portuguese officials have said.

    The U.N. Chief Executives Board for Coordination, chaired by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, is also advocating a different approach.

    In a 2019 report, the board announced its commitment to ?promote alternatives to conviction and punishment in appropriate cases, including the decriminalization of drug possession for personal use.?

    Doing so would also "address prison overcrowding and overincarceration by people accused of drug crimes,? said the board, which is made up of the leaders of all U.N. agencies, funds and other bodies.

    Oregon's measure is backed by the Oregon Nurses Association, the Oregon chapter of the American College of Physicians and the Oregon Academy of Family Physicians.

    ?Punishing people for drug use and addiction is costly and hasn?t worked. More drug treatment, not punishment, is a better approach,? the groups said in a statement.

    Opponents include two dozen district attorneys who urged a no vote, saying the measure ?recklessly decriminalizes possession of the most dangerous types of drugs (and) will lead to an increase in acceptability of dangerous drugs.?

    Three other district attorneys back the measure, including the top prosecutor in Oregon?s most populous county, which includes Portland, the state's largest city.

    ?Misguided drug laws have created deep disparities in the justice system," said Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt. "Arresting people with addictions is a cruel punishment because it slaps them with a lifelong criminal record that can ruin lives.?

    Jimmy Jones, executive director of Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action, a group that helps homeless people, said arresting people who are using but not dealing hard drugs makes life extremely difficult for them.

    ?Every time that this happens, not only does that individual enter the criminal justice system but it makes it very difficult for us, on the back end, to house any of these folks because a lot of landlords won?t touch people with recent criminal history,? Jones said. ?They won?t touch people with possession charges.?

    The measure would decriminalize possession of less than one gram of heroin or methamphetamine; two grams of cocaine; 12 grams of psilocybin mushrooms; 40 doses of LSD, oxycodone or methadone; and one gram or five pills of MDMA.

    The new addiction recovery centers that would be launched in the state would be funded by tax revenues from Oregon's legal, regulated marijuana industry.

    Marijuana tax revenues collected by the state in excess of $45 million annually would fund the centers. Doing so would reduce the amount given to schools, the state police, mental health programs and local governments, according to the ballot measure's financial impact statement published by the Oregon secretary of state.

    The Oregon revenue department said it received about $133 million in marijuana taxes during the most recent fiscal year that started in July 2019 and ended last June.

    Opponents have seized on the funding reductions in an attempt to sway voters to vote against the measure and have also said that decriminalizing hard drugs would make young people more likely to start using them.

    The state's voters in 2014 legalized recreational use and sale of marijuana. But it passed by fewer than 200,000 votes of the 1.5 million counted.

    Given that margin, the more controversial hard drugs decriminalization measure is unlikely to pass, said Catherine Bolzendahl, director of Oregon State University's School of Public Policy.

    But Christopher McKnight Nichols, associate professor of history at Oregon State University, said it's hard to gauge the outcome because voter participation seems headed for a historic high, with many first-time voters.

    ?We don?t know as much about their preferences,? Nichols said.

    If Oregon's voters reject Measure 110, "it may well pass next time, which has been the model for marijuana legalization, for instance, across the country,? Nichols said.

    The measure's political action committee, More Treatment for a Better Oregon: Yes on 110, received a $500,000 donation from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan via the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which supports science and education work and promotes criminal justice reform.

    ?If the measure passes, Oregon will shift to a health-based approach to drugs and addiction,? the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative's website says.

    I have another Scenario if Trump loses he will start a Trumptown Commune in Russia and lure his supporters to go to Putin's mansions and have his rallies there. But it will take a Leo Ryan type person in the Attorney General's office and to investigate how big this Trump Cult really is and we will end up in the same situation like in November 1978. Shit This includes all the Kool aid this president has promoted from Hydroxychloroquine, Oleandrin, Colloidal silver, COVID-19 aka SARS-CoV-2 Virus and disinfectants.

    If you are in a State Capital city such as Sacramento expect riot police to be all over the downtown area due to the elections. Or in Washington D.C. area expect riot police in the area.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Law enforcement agencies don’t know what’s going to happen with next week’s election any more than the public, but even if nothing happens, Sacramento authorities said they’ll be ready — just in case.

    After a year of protests and demonstrations on both the left and the right, there’s a growing sense that on Tuesday night, political divisions could possibly boil over into clashes on the streets as the 2020 election results come in.

    “We will be vigilant and we will take care of any problems that arise, but for people to be aware of what’s going on around them and try not to be in the middle of it so that they don’t end up as a victim or in the middle of a group that they’re not expecting to be,” Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Rod Grassmann said.

    Grassmann says starting this weekend, his agency is scheduling extra hours for some of its deputies.

    “What we do do around national events or national disasters is that we move to 12-hour shift model rather than have a 10-hour,” Grassmann explained.

    That extra two hours on shift means more deputies will be available if needed to “free up resources and personnel in case mutual aid is called or something unexpected happens, we are prepared,” he said.

    Similarly, the Sacramento Police Department released a statement to FOX40, stating extra officers will be available “to monitor any protests or disturbances that may occur in conjunction with the elections. As with any protests or demonstrations that occur in our city, rolling road closures may be enacted if the demonstration becomes mobile.”

    Also, the Downtown Sacramento Partnership is releasing a list of best practices for election night to its members, many of whom have already boarded up their store and restaurant windows because of an increase of protests downtown this year.

    As for any issues at the polls, Sgt. Grassman says those need to be reported to the county’s election board, not 911: “They are in charge of elections, they set all of that up, they monitor that, and they would be the ones to call. Certainly, if at a loss, and as a last resort, they’re always welcome to call us and we will look into it.”

    While law enforcement may be preparing for the worst this Tuesday, they are also hoping for the best.

    “One of the great things about our democracy, and we are the envy of the world for is that we have peaceful elections and we have peaceful transfers of power,” Grassmann said. “We’re expecting that this time around, also.”

    This is getting crazier a Biden Campaign bus was chased by Pro-Trump Militia

    Central Texas (KXAN) — Supporters of President Donald Trump allegedly harassed a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris bus as it traveled through Central Texas on Friday, according to local Democratic activists.

    Videos and photos posted on social media show a long line of vehicles flying Trump flags trailing the Biden-Harris bus as it traveled from San Antonio to Austin on I-35. In some images, the bus appears to be boxed in by the vehicles.

    Some members of the Texas Democrats’ campaign say that a Biden-Harris staffer’s car was hit during the incident.

    As a result of the incident, campaign events in Austin and Pflugerville were canceled.

    Katie Naranjo, chair of the Travis County Democratic Party, tweeted that Trump supporters followed the bus in an attempt to intimidate Biden voters.

    “They ran into a person’s car, yelling curse words and threats. Don’t let bullies win, vote,” she added.

    The Texas Democratic Party said that some of the vehicles pulled in front of the bus and slowed down to try to bring it to a stop on the highway.

    Law enforcement responded to the incident and helped the bus reach its destination, the party said. However, the campaign then decided to cancel an event at the Texas AFL-CIO parking lot in Austin later that day.

    In a Twitter thread, historian Eric Cervini, who said he traveled to Texas to help the Biden-Harris campaign, said the Trump supporters waited on I-35 to “ambush” the bus.

    Rep. Sheryl Cole, the incumbent candidate for District 46, wrote on Facebook that a campaign event had to be canceled after the incident.

    “This is a first for me, but we unfortunately just had to cancel the joint campaign event in Pflugerville due to security reasons,” she wrote.

    “Unfortunately, Pro-Trump protesters have escalated things well beyond safe limits, and we cannot risk the safety and security of anyone involved.

    “Sorry to all who looked forward to this fun event and now have to miss out,” she added.

    Tariq Thowfeek, Biden for President Texas communications director, said in a statement that Trump supporters put “our staff, surrogates, supporters and others in harm’s way.”

    “To the Texans who disrupted our events: We’ll see you on November 3rd,” he added.

    As of Saturday morning, no injuries have been reported as a result of the incident.

    KXAN has contacted the Department of Public Safety and the Texas GOP and will update this story if they respond.

    Its not just State Capitals and Washington D.C. facing issues of Election riots its going to be at every downtown area and city hall in the nation

    PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — With less than a week to go, city leaders and local law enforcement officials announced a unified plan for expected gatherings and protests around Election Day. The law enforcement agencies aren’t giving out any specifics of their plans but did say there is no known threat at this point.

    “Any violence before or after the election will not be tolerated,” Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese said during a press conference on Thursday. “We are stepping up visible patrols at ballot drop of location and election headquarters to ensure people feel safe.”

    Multnomah County DA Mike Schmidt said he knows there will be gatherings on Election Day but urged people to be safe.

    “We won’t tolerate any attempts to intimidate voters,” Schmidt said. “For those who incite violence or harm, my office will hold you accountable.”

    Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said the bureau is increasing staffing and canceling days off.

    “Right now we’re working very hard to make sure we have the resources, personnel wise and infrastructure in place,” Lovell said. “We’re prepared to work together and do everything we can to ensure the election time in Portland is safe.”

    Oregon State Police will also be assisting, but Superintendent Terri Davie wouldn’t say exactly how many troopers would be in the Portland area on Election Day.

    Officials wouldn’t give details on which agency will handle what aspect of any protest and said it’s still being decided. For now, PPB is the lead agency.

    Tear gas fills streets as federal officers clash with protesters
    Lovell said his officers still have to comply with Mayor Ted Wheeler’s ban on using tear gas, but other agencies don’t have such restrictions.

    “That is a tool and a resource the Oregon State Police does have and depending on the circumstances or the situation it is something the state police have the ability to deploy,” Davie said.

    OSP is also planning to be ready to head to other parts of the state if there is violence on election night or after. On October 16, the Portland Police Bureau announced they and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office are working with other agencies to make sure that — regardless of the outcome of any race in the election — the city and its citizens will be safe while still being free to express their voices.

    “We will have more resources available during election week, modifying schedules to have more officers on duty,” Assistant Chief Chris Davis told KOIN 6 News. “That helps.”

    Earlier in October, a meeting set up by Mayor Ted Wheeler included PPB, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, the Oregon State Police and representatives from Gov. Kate Brown’s office to work on a unified command plan for election night. Details of that plan were not released at the time.

    Also the FBI is investigating the incident where Trump thugs surrounded the Biden Bus

    AUSTIN (NEXSTAR) — The Federal Bureau of Investigation is now looking into a Friday incident in Texas where supporters of President Donald Trump aggressively surrounded a Biden campaign bus on a Texas interstate, according to the Texas Tribune.

    The incident, which was captured on video, happened on Interstate 35 in Hays County and prompted Democrats to cancel at least one campaign event Friday citing “safety concerns.”

    Multiple clips posted on social media show a long line of vehicles flying Trump flags trailing the Biden-Harris bus as it traveled from San Antonio to Austin. In some images, the bus appears to be boxed in by the vehicles.

    At least one video showed a minor collision during the incident. Pictures showed an SUV, believed to be driven by a Biden-Harris campaign staffer, with damage along the side of the vehicle.

    On Saturday, Trump tweeted what appeared to be video of the caravan surrounding the the bus saying, “I LOVE TEXAS!”

    Katie Naranjo, chair of the Travis County Democratic Party, tweeted that Trump supporters followed the bus in an attempt to intimidate Biden voters.

    “They ran into a person’s car, yelling curse words and threats. Don’t let bullies win, vote,” she added.

    The Kyle Police Department confirmed in a statement to KXAN they received reports around 4 p.m. Friday that indicated two or more vehicles may have made contact while traveling north on Interstate 35. Officers responded to the area but no vehicles stopped to share information with them.

    “Members of what is believed to be a campaign bus for Kamala Harris as well as following vehicles with campaign staffers advised the Kyle Police Department via telephone that they did not intend to stop, so Kyle Police obtained contact information so contact could be made at a later time,” the emailed statement continued. It went on to say that the “vehicle contact” happened in San Marcos and that all involved parties are being referred to the San Marcos Police Department if they want to file a police report.

    San Marcos police said the Biden-Harris bus requested a police escort, but due to excessive traffic officers were not able to catch the bus before it left the jurisdiction.

    The police department also said it has researched the crash and watched online video. It said the “at-fault vehicle” may be the Biden-Harris staffer’s car, while the “victim” appears to be one of the Trump vehicles.

    “The at-fault vehicle may be the white SUV and the victim appears to be the black truck,” a statement from SMPD reads.

    “Calls to the driver of the white SUV have gone unanswered and SMPD has not been contacted by the driver of the black truck. Since SMPD has not spoken to either driver at this time, additional investigation would be required to fully ascertain who was at fault.”

    “Where is the liberal corporate media’s concern about that real violence?” a statement from Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West said in part. “It is more fake news and propaganda. Prepare to lose…stop bothering me.”

    The Texas Democratic Party said that some of the vehicles pulled in front of the bus and slowed down to try to bring it to a stop on the highway. It also confirmed law enforcement responded to the incident and helped the bus reach its destination.

    In a Twitter thread, historian Eric Cervini, who said he traveled to Texas to help the Biden-Harris campaign, said the Trump supporters waited on I-35 to “ambush” the bus.

    Tariq Thowfeek, Biden for President Texas communications director, said in a statement that Trump supporters put “our staff, surrogates, supporters and others in harm’s way.”

    “To the Texans who disrupted our events: We’ll see you on November 3rd,” he added.

    A spokeswoman with the FBI told KXAN they would have a statement as early as noon Sunday.
    Turns out Trump supporters did surround the Biden/Harris bus by Trump's orders.

    Looks like there is a

    President Trump is celebrating a caravan of supporters who followed a Biden-Harris campaign bus in Central Texas.

    In a Saturday night tweet, the president retweeted a video showing his supporters surrounding the bus, set to Tech N9ne's "Red Kingdom." "I LOVE TEXAS!" Trump said.

    The tweet came after a separate video surfaced showing vehicles with Trump 2020 flags boxing in the blue campaign bus as it traveled Interstate 35 from San Antonio to Austin. In a statement, the Biden campaign said the cars slowed in front of it in an attempt to "stop the bus in the middle of the highway," the Washington Post reported.

    The Friday incident rattled the Biden campaign, which canceled at least one event in the state following the episode. Campaign staff called 911, according to the statement, and was given help by law enforcement reaching its destination.

    Neither Joe Biden, who had been campaigning in the Midwest, nor his running mate Kamala Harris, campaigning elsewhere in Texas, were on the bus at the time.

    Trump discussed the caravan at a Michigan campaign event on Sunday.

    "Did you see the way our people, they were, ya know, protecting this bus ... because they're nice," he said. "They had hundreds of cars. Trump! Trump! Trump and the American flag."

    Trump favorably contrasted his supporters with Biden supporters, who he said lack spirit and enthusiasm.

    "The Trump Train is in hot pursuit," wrote one of the participants of the caravan on Twitter, where they posted several updates of the location of the Biden bus throughout the day. "Just a few of our great patriots out there."

    In another video of the incident posted to social media, a truck in the caravan clips a white car.

    Rather than engage in productive conversation about the drastically different visions that Joe Biden and Donald Trump have for our country, Trump supporters in Texas today instead decided to put our staff, surrogates, supporters, and others in harm's way," the Biden campaign's Texas communications director, Tariq Thowfeek, said in a statement, the Post reported.

    The Friday incident comes amid a particularly heated contest in Texas, where polls show Biden in striking distance of winning a state that no Democratic nominee has won since 1976. Tensions have been running high in the final days leading up to Election Day, as voters on both sides fear violence from the opposition, and the president's words have raised concern over potential voter intimidation.

    Katie Naranjo, chair of the Travis County Democratic Party, said the caravan was a clear attempt by Trump's base to intimidate Biden supporters. "They ran into a person's car, yelling curse words and threats," Naranjo said. "Don't let bullies win, vote."

    "We just canceled a joint event in Pflugerville" with the Biden campaign "due to security reasons," Texas House member and former Austin city councilwoman Sheryl Cole said on Twitter. "Unfortunately, Pro-Trump Protestors have escalated well beyond safe limits."

    Republicans have pushed back on allegations of voter intimidation.

    "It is more fake news and propaganda," Texas GOP Chairman Allen West said in a statement. "Prepare to lose," he said, adding: "stop bothering me."

    Republicans in Texas have asked the courts to toss out some 127,000 early ballots cast by voters in Harris County, arguing that the votes — delivered via drive-through in the heavily Democratic area — violate the U.S. Constitution and should be deemed invalid.

    The plaintiffs — a conservative activist, a Republican state representative and two GOP candidates — argue that the drive-through options are an illegal extension of curbside voting, which is available at all county voting locations and is designated for people who have an illness or disability.

    The Democratic Harris County clerk, Chris Hollins, dismissed the lawsuit as "baseless" in an interview with NPR's Weekend Edition.

    "This is simply an un-American attempt to disenfranchise voters," he said, noting that no one knows for whom the ballots were cast and that rejecting them would likely affect thousands of Republicans too.

    A 'Perception Hack': When Public Reaction Exceeds The Actual Hack
    U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Houston, who's seen as a deeply conservative federal magistrate, is set to rule over the complaint. The case of the Harris County ballots is set to be heard Monday morning.

    The Texas Supreme Court has rejected a similar appeal.

    Throughout the campaign, Republicans and President Trump have baselessly claimed that various efforts — particularly mail-in voting — intended to accommodate voters amid the coronavirus pandemic pave the way for fraud.

    Election security experts have repeatedly said that there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud, though there are active attempts to sow disinformation among the electorate.

    Hollins said on Sunday that he expects to win the federal case, but "in a totally extreme downside scenario, we would need to encourage those 127,000 Harris County voters to come back out on Tuesday and cast a provisional ballot to make sure that in any circumstance their vote was counted. We're hoping it doesn't come to that."

    Texas has seen record early vote turnout this year.

    No surprise. Remember in 2016 when they thought that women shouldn't be allowed to vote and tried to move on that? These guys don't want anyone but white straight Christian men to vote.

    We Americans used to accuse other countries for election tensions of the past such as Zimbabwe, Kenya and Guinea in previous administrations.

    The TX Supreme Court denied them

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/01/polit...ing/index.html

    The Texas Supreme Court denied a petition Sunday by a group of Republicans seeking to invalidate nearly 127,000 drive-thru votes in Harris County, while a similar case awaits a decision in federal court just two days before Election Day.
    This is the second time in recent weeks the all-Republican Supreme Court in Texas has blocked attempts to dismantle drive-thru voting there. The court did not issue an opinion with the ruling.

    Why havent more people voted in the poll?

    Biden is going to win. I know a bunch of Republicans (they are plentiful in this area) that are voting for Biden.

    People are sick of Trump. His asinine tweets, his acting like COVID is nbd, his overall Narcisistic personality.

    Hell some people are voting for Biden just because Trump acted like such an asshole at the debate and showed his real, immature, true self.

    I know people are worried, but dont be, Biden will win. Thats just my feeling.
