    Between the cop shooting some guy in the back five times and the pure idiocy..... Well.... EVERYWHERE. I'm out.

    Done. Finished. Kaput.

    See y'all next year when I'm in Ireland no matter who gets in. I commend you all for trying, but it's either this or the bridge. So I'm out. Done. Donsky, can't do any more. I'll do it from 6000 miles away while getting healthcare and dental.

    My husband and myself may not be great. I MAY NOT BE GREAT. But I'm taking the escape route and going to get the fuck out of here.

    Update the Trump's are threatening to Sue the Lincoln Project.

    Attorneys for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner threatened to sue The Lincoln Project, a prominent Republican group opposing the president, for billboards it put up in Times Square in Manhattan.

    The attorneys in a letter to The Lincoln Project complained about one billboard displaying Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to her father, President Trump, smiling and gesturing next to figures showing that more than 33,000 New Yorkers and 221,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus. The lawyers also cited a billboard featuring Kushner, another senior White House adviser, next to body bags and an unrelated 2019 quote from before the pandemic in which he said New Yorkers would ?suffer.?

    I am writing concerning the false, malicious and defamatory ads that the Lincoln Project is displaying on billboards in Times Square,? wrote attorney Marc Kasowitz. ?If these billboards are not immediately removed, we will sue you for what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damages.?

    The Lincoln Project as well as Democrats have launched withering criticism at the White House over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic as cases spike across the country. The group has risen to prominence by releasing rapid-fire ads highlighting the latest controversy stemming from the White House, often going viral online and drawing rebukes from the president.

    The anti-Trump group has most recently begun teaming up with Democratic groups to roll out ad buys worth millions of dollars in key swing states to hit President Trump on an array of issues, including the current health crisis and its economic fallout.

    The Lincoln Project maintained in a statement that it will leave the billboards up, saying they accurately depict a lax attitude toward the pandemic.

    ?The level of indignant outrage Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have shown towards The Lincoln Project for exposing their indifference for the more than 223,000 people who have lost their lives due to their reckless mismanagement of COVID-19 is comical. While we truly enjoy living rent free in their heads, their empty threats will not be taken any more seriously than we take Ivanka and Jared,? the group said in a statement.

    ?It is unsurprising that an administration that has never had any regard or understanding of our Constitution would try to trample on our first amendment rights but we fully intend on making this civics lesson as painful as possible,? it added.

    Here is an interesting segment, This election is driving up gun sales but not by the stereotypical NRA Trump members

    AUSTIN, Texas—Noah Horner always wanted a gun, but the 24-year-old tech company engineer had never been motivated enough to follow through. At least until this year, when coronavirus shut down the country, the economy tanked, unemployment spiked, more than 220,000 died, and a series of killings by police inspired thousands of protests, some of which turned violent.

    Six weeks ago, because of what he understatedly calls “the current environment,” Horner bought his first firearm, a Glock 43X handgun that he keeps in his nightstand while he sleeps. But he didn’t want just to protect himself at home. He was worried he might need it as he was going about his daily life. In Austin, an Army sergeant had shot and killed a protester he said pointed a rifle at him after he turned his car onto a street where a demonstration was taking place. Horner wondered: What if I had to confront protesters alone at night? But if Horner wanted to be able to carry his new weapon in public, he’d need a license. Which is why on a recent Saturday morning, he drove to a strip mall in South Austin to sit in a windowless classroom at Central Texas Gun Works.

    The class of about 20 people was being taught by the store’s owner, Michael Cargill, who offers up to four classes a week; the Saturday sessions are booked weeks in advance. He said he has noticed a shift in his clientele this year. Typically, Cargill’s customers are mostly conservative, he said, and the people enrolled in his license to carry classes are a mix of Republicans, Democrats and Libertarians. But lately, he said, the majority of the students are coming from the left side of the political spectrum.

    For months Donald Trump has tweeted “LAW & ORDER” in all caps and cast himself as a “tough on crime” leader who will quell the unrest that defined the summer. He warned the “suburban housewives of America” that Joe Biden would destroy their neighborhoods. It’s a message that seems designed to appeal to anxious people like Horner. But it isn’t.

    Horner told me he doesn’t consider himself political, but he said he’s planning to vote for Biden. He thinks Trump has embarrassed the country and mishandled the pandemic. Two others in the class, a young couple, described themselves as left-leaning, and they both have cast early ballots for Biden. Zachary Harris, 23, and his fianc?e, 24-year-old Amy Taylor, purchased their first firearms about six months before the course—a shotgun, a .22 rifle and a handgun. Even though Taylor grew up around guns, they were both wary of the dangers the weapons posed if they didn’t handle them carefully. But soon they expected to have something to protect—a child. And as a woman, Taylor felt vulnerable. Harris, who said he once would have described himself as anti-gun, said they’re not alone among their left-leaning friends who are also considering what kinds of weapons they should own.

    Across the country, gun sales are high. Ammunition is sold out. And Cargill, among other retailers, is selling more firearms to first-time buyers. Gun retailers in the United States estimate that 40 percent of their sales during the first four months of 2020 were to first-time buyers compared with an annual average of 24 percent in years past, according to a survey conducted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearm industry’s trade association.
    Between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30, about 15.4 million background checks were conducted nationally, said Mark Oliva, public affairs director for the foundation. That’s more than all of 2019, and quickly approaching the all-time record of 15.7 million checks in 2016, when Hillary Clinton was running for president.

    Gun sales typically rise during an election year, but 2020, Oliva said, has been “unlike any other.” And the demographics of gun buyers appear to be shifting, too. Retailers are selling to more women, and more Black men and women, than in previous years. Oliva, who is a 47-year-old, white Marine veteran, said gun owners are starting to look less like him and more like Cargill, who is Black. Sales data don’t provide clues about buyers’ politics. But Cargill’s interactions with his customers across the counter tell him that talk about civil unrest around the upcoming election is just one more reason people are feeling anxious enough to buy a weapon now.

    “If I dial 911, I’m not going to get the police officer,” Cargill said, explaining how some people have weighed the decision to arm themselves, “I’m going to have to be my own first responder. I’m going to have to get a gun.”

    A fire was set Sunday in a Boston ballot drop box holding more than 120 ballots in what appears to have been a “deliberate attack,” Massachusetts election officials said.

    The state has asked the FBI to investigate the fire that was set around 4 a.m. in a ballot drop box outside the Boston Public Library downtown, Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin’s office said.

    In a joint statement, Galvin and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh called it a “disgrace to democracy, a disrespect to the voters fulfilling their civic duty, and a crime.”

    “Our first and foremost priority is maintaining the integrity of our elections process and ensuring transparency and trust with our voters, and any effort to undermine or tamper with that process must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” they said in the emailed statement. “We ask voters not to be intimidated by this bad act, and remain committed to making their voices heard in this and every election.”

    Boston Police said an arson investigation is underway and released surveillance images of a person near the ballot box at that time, urging the public to help identify the individual.

    Officers called to the scene saw smoke coming out of the box before firefighters managed to extinguish the fire by filling the box with water, police said.

    There were 122 ballots inside the box when it was emptied Sunday morning, and 87 of them were still legible and able to be processed, Galvin’s office said. The box had last been emptied around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

    Voters can go online to see whether their ballot was processed. Those who used that dropbox between Saturday afternoon and 4 a.m. Sunday and can’t confirm the status of their ballot online should contact the Boston Elections Department immediately, officials said.

    Voters whose ballots were affected can either vote in person or by a replacement ballot that will be mailed to them, officials said. If those voters don’t submit a new ballot, “their original ballot will be hand-counted to the extent possible,” Galvin’s office said.

    An email seeking comment on whether the FBI is investigating was sent to an agency spokesperson.

    Armed militia groups are forging alliances in the final stages of the US presidential election with conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers who claim the coronavirus pandemic is a hoax, intensifying concerns that trouble could be brewing ahead of election day.

    Leading advocates of anti-government and anti-science propaganda came together at the weekend, joined by the founder of one of the largest militia groups. The rare connection occurred at the Red Pill Expo, a conference convened on Jekyll Island, Georgia – a symbolic location as it is the birthplace of the US Federal Reserve, a popular bogey figure for conspiracy theorists.

    The summit, staged indoors in front of a packed and maskless audience of about 350, was headlined by Stewart Rhodes, president of the Oath Keepers. The militia, which turned up menacingly at several Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests over the summer and has acted as a vigilante squad at numerous Donald Trump campaign rallies, has links to 25,000 current or past members, mostly military or police veterans.

    Rhodes aroused the crowd of “Red Pillers”, as they called themselves, with incendiary language. He denounced BLM as a “communist front” and encouraged attendees to seek training in firearms and militia activity as the election approaches.

    “You are your own self-defense,” he said. “You must organize yourselves in the next 30 days in your towns and counties. We have members in every state in the union and we are standing them up right now.”

    Rhodes said the turbulence around “radical left” protests had brought “a flood of special warfare operatives into the Oath Keepers”. He cited former navy Seals and special force personnel from Fort Bragg, the US army garrison in North Carolina.

    A number of groups monitoring far rightwing paramilitary activity have warned in recent weeks that militia groups and individuals online are increasingly focusing their attentions on the presidential election. The chatter has been fueled by Trump’s provocative remarks casting doubt on the integrity of the voting process and calling on his supporters to turn up at polling places on election day.

    Anxiety is also growing around the activities of white supremacist domestic terrorist groups, which federal agencies now recognize as an especially dangerous threat. Last week six people were charged in a plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.

    At the Red Pill gathering, the Oath Keeper president set his sights openly on election day. He said that on 3 November “we will have our men deployed outside the polling stations to make sure you are protected, especially in swing states”.

    Rhodes’ appearance marked an unusually overt fusion of interests between armed far-right groups and anti-government and anti-pharmaceutical conspiracy theorists. Several of his fellow keynote speakers denounced the coronavirus pandemic as a fraud cooked up by global elites as a ploy to subjugate the American people.

    Betsy Quammen, author of a book on the 2014 Bundy standoff in Nevada who attended the Red Pill event as a monitor, said the union of disparate virulent movements was troubling. “As somebody who’s been studying militia manoeuvring and conspiracy theorists, it’s disconcerting to see these various groups uniting under a common banner of mistrust about coronavirus.”

    She added that the timing of the meeting so close to the election was alarming.

    Among the speakers at the summit, Mikki Willis followed Rhodes in talking up the actions of armed rightwing individuals. Willis is known for having been the director of Plandemic, the viral video that spread the lie that coronavirus was invented by big drug companies and Bill Gates, among others.

    He boasted to the Red Pill audience that he had also made a laudatory video about Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged in August in the killing of two people during anti-police brutality protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Willis praised the alleged shooter, whom Trump also notably failed to denounce, as a “very stand-up citizen”.

    David Icke, the British conspiracy theorist widely denounced for antisemitic hate speech, was beamed into the summit by video from the UK. He traded misinformation about the “pandemic hoax”, accusing a global “cult” of elites of having creating a coronavirus vaccine that was in fact a “sterilization agent” that would be used to destroy humanity.

    Icke also encouraged school kids to refuse to wear masks, which he called “face diapers”.

    Two other major strains of misinformation were represented at the weekend. Del Bigtree, producer of the anti-vaccination film Vaxxed, which features the disgraced British doctor Andrew Wakefield, also portrayed the pandemic as a global conspiracy aiming to take control over people’s lives.

    Bigtree pointed to a poll last month that suggested that two-thirds of Americans would be hesitant to get a Covid vaccine when it first became available. He said the survey showed the anti-vaccination movement was winning: “Man, does it feel good!”

    He also praised Trump as a “brave individual” and someone “I’ve watched wear a mask less than anyone else”.

    The last group given a voice at the gathering were peddlers of industrial bleach, who market the chemical as a “miracle cure” for all known ailments including malaria, HIV/Aids, cancer and Covid-19. Kerri Rivera, a leading advocate of chlorine dioxide as a treatment for autism, talked to the summit by video link from Germany.

    “If people took chlorine dioxide for most illnesses, few doctors would be needed and the pharmaceutical industry would be bankrupted,” she said.

    She also claimed the bleach, which is used in industrial textile manufacturing, had no major side effects. In fact, the US Food and Drug Administration has warned that consuming it can be life-threatening and incidents of death have been recorded.

    Several leading bleach pushers in the US are currently in jail on federal charges.

    Trump's pitch to women on coronavirus recovery: 'We're getting your husbands back to work'

    In an appeal to female voters one week before Election Day, President Trump promised to get "husband's back to work" as part of economic recovery efforts directed toward states rebounding from the coronavirus pandemic.

    "Your husbands, they want to get back to work," Trump said during a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan on Tuesday. "We're getting your husband's back to work. And everybody wants it."

    Most polls show Trump lagging with women behind Democratic nominee Joe Biden particularly in suburban areas - a voting bloc largely responsible for the so-called "blue wave" which helped Democrats regain control of the House in 2018.

    A survey in September found suburban women cited Trump's mishandling of the coronavirus as a key reason they plan to vote against him in this year's presidential contest.

    The Trump campaign is betting that a law and order messaging blitz will help the president's popularity among women in purple districts such as Oakland and Kent County.

    During a rally last month, Trump joked about his lagging poll numbers with women, who were among the bloc's that helped him win the White House in 2016.

    "Suburban women, will you please like me?" Trump said. "I saved your damn neighborhood, okay?"

    In August, the Detroit News reported the state had recovered more than half the jobs it lost during the pandemic. By late April, Michigan reported 1.2 million jobless claims since March 15, when the pandemic shut down most of the country, according to Crain's Business Detroit.

    Trump has attacked Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) for keeping her state "locked down" for what he and other Republicans have said is too long of a period of time. The state, like many others across the country, has reported a spike of coronavirus cases in recent weeks.

    Michigan is seen as a battleground state for both candidates in the final days leading to the election. Trump won the state narrowly in 2016. Whitmer was elected during a Democratic wave in 2018.

    Boom!!! after the Trumps threatened to sue the Lincoln Project over the COVID-19 ads now theres a new possible lawsuit where Trump is named as a defendant in a rape allegation.

    A federal judge on Tuesday denied Donald Trump?s request that he be replaced as the defendant in a defamation lawsuit alleging he raped a woman in a Manhattan department store in the 1990s.


    The decision by US district judge Lewis A Kaplan came after the justice department argued that the United States ? and by extension US taxpayers ? should replace Trump as the defendant in a lawsuit filed by the columnist E Jean Carroll.

    The government?s lawyers contended that the United States could step in as the defendant because Trump was forced to respond to her lawsuit to prove he was physically and mentally fit for the job.

    The judge ruled that a law protecting federal employees from being sued individually for things they do within the scope of their employment didn?t apply to a president. But even if it did, Kaplan ruled, Trump?s public denials of the rape allegation would have come outside the scope of his employment.

    Lawyers for Carroll had written that ?only in a world gone mad could it somehow be presidential, not personal, for Trump to slander a woman who he sexually assaulted?.

    In a statement, Carroll said: ?When I spoke out about what Donald Trump did to me in a department store dressing room, I was speaking out against an individual. When Donald Trump called me a liar and denied that he had ever met me, he was not speaking on behalf of the United States.

    ?I am happy that Judge Kaplan recognized these basic truths. As the judge recognized today, the question whether President Trump raped me 20 years ago in a department store is at ?the heart? of this lawsuit. We can finally return to answering that question, and getting the truth out.?

    Roberta Kaplan, counsel to Carroll, said: ?We are very pleased that the federal court interpreted the plain text of Federal Tort Claims Act as not covering President Trump?s false statements about our client.

    ?The simple truth is that President Trump defamed our client because she was brave enough to reveal that he had sexually assaulted her, and that brutal, personal attack cannot be attributed to the office of the president.?

    The justice department relied solely on written arguments after its lawyer was banned from a Manhattan federal courthouse last week because he had not quarantined for two weeks after traveling to New York from a state where coronavirus positive test rates were high.

    Carroll, a former longtime advice columnist for Elle magazine, said in her lawsuit that in the fall of 1995 or spring of 1996 she and Trump met in a chance encounter when they recognized each other at the Bergdorf Goodman store.

    She said they engaged in a lighthearted chat about trying on a see-through lilac gray bodysuit when they made their way to a dressing room, where she said Trump pushed her against a wall and raped her.

    Trump said Carroll was ?totally lying? to sell a memoir and that he had never met her, though a 1987 photo showed them and their then-spouses at a social event. He said the photo captured a moment when he was standing in a line.

    Carroll, who wants unspecified damages and a retraction of Trump?s statements, also seeks a DNA sample from Trump to see whether it matches as-yet-unidentified male genetic material found on a dress that she says she was wearing during the alleged attack.

    On Tuesday, Kaplan added: ?We look forward to moving forward with E Jean Carroll?s defamation case against Donald Trump in his personal capacity in federal court.?

    He really is trying to kill his supporters!

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/202...rally-n1245065
    Hundreds of President Donald Trump supporters were left in the freezing cold for hours after a rally at an airfield in Omaha, Nebraska, on Tuesday night, with some walking around three miles to waiting buses and others being taken away in ambulances.

    Six were taken to hospitals, suffering from a variety of medical conditions, the Omaha airport authority said in a statement. The authority said it could not confirm that the people were taken to hospitals because of the cold.

    Many of those at the rally at the Eppley Airfield faced hours in long lines to get in and clogged parking lots and busy crowds to get out, hours after his Air Force One departed around 9 p.m. Crowds cleared about 12:30 a.m.

    According to dispatches from Omaha Police department, recorded by radio communications platform, Broadcastify, at least 30 people including the elderly, an electric wheelchair user and a family with small children were among those requiring medical attention after hours of waiting in the cold at the rally at the Eppley Airfield.

    "Supporters of the president were brought in, but buses weren?t able to get back to transport people out. It?s freezing and snowy in Omaha tonight," Nebraska State Senator Megan Hunt tweeted.

    NBC News has reached out to the Trump campaign, Omaha Police Department, Omaha Fire/EMS and Douglas County Sheriff's Office in Omaha and has not yet received comment.

    "There's an issue with a number of people unable to find their cars and wandering in the cold ... see if we can't get everybody reunited with a car," the Omaha Police Dispatch 1129 recording said, according to Broadcastify.

    "I've got an elderly male that's down ten blocks...having a hard time breathing right now," audio on Omaha Police Dispatch 1100 said. While another refers to: "Subject says he's about to pass out."

    The recordings say there were about "30 patient contacts" and 20 buses backed-up and creating jams as rally-goers had to be shuttled back to busy parking lots and exits. The dispatches also reference patients being taken to Creighton University Medical Center, NBC News reached out to the hospital but did not yet receive a response.

    Ahead of the event, the Omaha Police Department warned on Twitter that "Parking at the TRUMP rally is full."

    "Is there any place you would rather be than a Trump rally on about a 10 degree evening? ... It's cold out here but that's okay," Trump said as he arrived at Eppley Airfield wearing a heavy black coat and gloves.

    Crowds cheered as he pretended to close up his coat.

    Trump told the crowd he'd been to Wisconsin and Michigan earlier on Tuesday, where it had also been freezing and raining and thanked crowds for attending.

    "I said I won't put on a hat because I'm gonna show you how tough we are," he said.

    "It was pouring and it was freezing. It is the coldest right here, right? It is an honor to be with you, I have to say. When we win, you win, Nebraska wins and all of America wins."
