          Voter fraud whining is mostly just whining. Many races turned on money and you can quantify it as Republicans were outspent in many of these races and some by large amounts with the formerly dreaded “dark money.”

          Hundreds of millions came from Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer alone. Many Republicans had sizeable deficits in small Congressional races across the country, sometimes multiples of their campaign funds.

      Will Clear Another 27 Rome Sites After Baobab — Salvini
      Want to bring legality back to Rome quarter by quarter

      (ANSA) — Rome, November 13 — The government will clear another 27 Roman sites after Tuesday’s clearance of the Baobab migrants camp, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday.

      “Order and security. We want to bring legality back to Rome, quarter by quarter,” he said.

      “We’ll make other clearances, using objective criteria: four for dangerous buildings and 23 because they have judicial initiatives in course. We won’t stop: we mean to move from words to deeds”, he said, vowing to be obdurate on illegal squats.

    Minnesotans elected ANOTHER Muslim to Congress. Meet Ilhan Omar. THIS is what the Democrat Communists want for America. THIS is why conservatives coast to coast should be MARCHING, PROTESTING, RIOTING over the stolen votes across America.

    The country’s on a fast track to being totally overtaken by people who hate conservatives and plan to make them second class citizens like Jews in Nazi Germany, and conservatives stay home bemoaning election theft, instead of taking to the streets.

      Ya know, I’m tired of the gaslighted nonsense that the house had anything to do with Trump. Look how many races Trump pulled over the finish line in the Senate…he raked up the wins and Obama got curb stomped…Trump steered clear of the house races because he knew…The house is on Ryan and the GOP….if only Trump could have split himself into 40 and campaigned for each of those races perhaps we could have held the house.

    I was just doing some reading about cable service and now understand why after I turned in my cable boxes that I could no longer receive cable TV service by connecting my TV directly to the cable jack in the wall even though the service was still active. It’s because of encryption. The cable companies didn’t used to encrypt the basic channels but they started doing it some time after Oct 10 2012, the date that Barry’s FCC allowed the cable companies to encrypt everything. I never noticed because for many years I had an extra channel package and needed cable boxes for that. Several years ago they “upgraded” our service to X1 and it totally sucked. Horrible menus, horrible On Demand selection, excessive lag, slow updates … awful. I finally quit all of that mess in June or July this year, I cancelled my extra channels package, turned in my boxes, and hooked up antennas. I’ll never go back. Anyway, when I disconnected the boxes that’s when I found out I needed them even just to see basic channels. And now I know why. It’s not just Comcast, it’s probably all of the providers. Seriously, how much more do they want us to bend over? I encourate you all to dump your cable TV service. And stop watching FOX too since they supported the Acosta lawsuit. We need to quit rewarding companies for screwing us over. We need to use our power. Here’s the 2012 FCC announcement https://www.fcc.gov/document/commission-relaxes-cable-encryption-prohibition And here’s an interesting NBC article about it. https://www.nbcnews.com/businessmain/cable-subscribers-are-about-get-sneaky-fee-1C7476067 I don’t remember any snowflakes crying about this.

      Wow, NYC cable consumers were forced to bend over more in 2010. “In an email to NBC News, NCTA spokesman Brian Dietz noted that Cablevision already encrypts basic service in New York City under a waiver granted by the FCC in 2010. Dietz said the company did not receive any complaints from its customers.” Barry’s FCC gave them special permission to encrypt all of their channels. Why? And BS about no complaints. I’ll bet if we go to the cable provider’s message boards we’d find tons of complaints. I just did a quick search and here’s a page from a Comcast board from Oct 2013 which is probably when they started raping all of their customers. https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/TV-Archive/Limited-Basic-Channel-Encryption-BOOOOOO/td-p/1890831

      It would not be so bad IF you could just order the individual channels you want, instead of their “bundles”. They have had the technology to do it. Most people can get a number of broadcast stations for free using an HD antenna. The major stations have digital sub-channels, so you have even more choices than the old analog antenna days. If you have a broadband internet connection, there are streaming services such as Klowdtv.com that carry superior real news stations like One America News for a reasonable fee.

    For Clinton, the stakes of the final interview will be high.

    “There’s a lot of jeopardy that is going to happen in this interview. It’s very high-stakes,” said Matthew Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney who now leads a watchdog group called the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust.

    The trick for Clinton, he said, will be to make sure that her story lines up with the testimony provided by her aides.

    “They’re only going to ask her questions that they know the answers to already,” he said.

    One of my favorite songs…”Imagine” by John Lennon. “You may say I’m a dreamer, but, I’m not the the only one. I hope some day you will join us. And the world will live as one”. We are all children of one Living God. I pray someday we all realize this and live this way. God has won the battle, He never promised it would be easy, but, He promised Good will be victorious. In those times I become so angry about what is happening in our world today, I stop and remember God’s promise….Greater is He that is in me than he than is in the world. Evil will not prevail!

          I believe this is the open thread as described by Sundance. And I believe this song is open for interpretation. I do believe that God created all Men in His image, and I believe in God as my creator and the Divine judge of all. If you want to judge me as an atheist for believing that one day we will all will live in Peace on God’s New Earth as promised then judge me. It amazes me how people are attacked on this website. I dont share often and now I know why. Just proves that even with a deep faith in God we still can be persecuted. God bless you.

      PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Six people were killed and at least five others were wounded Sunday during demonstrations across Haiti protesting allegations of embezzlement from a Venezuelan program that provided the country with subsidized oil, police said.

      President Jovenel Moise called for dialogue with opposition groups that are seeking his resignation for failing to investigate corruption.

      Thousands of Haitians marched Sunday to the National Palace in the capital, calling for a probe into the spending of $3.8 billion Haiti received as part of the regional Petrocaribe program.

      Clashes with police erupted after protesters blocked streets and set fire to tires.

      A Haitian Senate investigation has alleged embezzlement by at least 14 former officials in former President Michel Martelly’s administration, but no one has been charged. There were reports of clashes in smaller protests across the country.

      Four people were wounded in clashes in San Marcos, northeast of the capital, and dozens were arrested, police said.

      Police said they deployed more than 3,000 officers in the capital, the city of Cap-Haitien and smaller cities and towns.

      Starting in 2005, Venezuela offered discounted crude with extremely lenient repayment terms to countries around Central American and the Caribbean.
