        No, this video is not real. The real version is downstream, but you’ll have to go to YouTube to view.
        However, whoever peddled the edited version wants you to believe it’s real; an interesting point in itself!
        In the end, it seems increasingly obvious that (1) Joe Biden WILL NOT BE the nominee per the plan, OR (2) he suddenly gives up his Forest Gump ‘persona,’ and then ‘tough guy’ Joe Biden reemerges!
        If it’s option (1), Biden would be yielding to a pre-determined, dark horse candidate who, by design, will be making a late entry into the field; will have high name recognition; will be independently wealthy; will thus avoid a withering assault from Team Trump; and will only have time for a quick sprint to the White House.
        The Dem advantage is that this pre-determined candidate will not need funding; he can rehearse his talking-points, prepare his attack ads ( and have them ready to go), whereas the President may not have time to prepare a rebuttal in his defense, or to have tailored-made attack ads against this dark horse candidate.
        So, it’s either “tough guy’ Joe Biden, or a very rich, very well-known, liberal progressive with ‘lib cred,’ say a Bill Gates, expert on all lib issues, and who is a hero to many (mostly libs).
        No way will it be Sleepy, Demented Joe!!

      How well do cloth face coverings work to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
      There is limited evidence to suggest that the use of cloth face coverings by the public during a pandemic could help reduce disease transmission. …
      Cloth face coverings are not a substitute for physical distancing and washing hands and staying home when ill, but they may be helpful when combined with these primary interventions. …

      Is a face cover required?
      … Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, or otherwise unable to remove the mask or cloth face covering without assistance should not wear one.

    Wondering if someone can help me understand the Vote-by mail. I don’t comment here much, but I have been here since 2017 and I find SD and the people very knowledgeable. So is this Vote by mail even legal? Are we saying Blue states can just pass laws declaring it legal in their state and those votes would be counted in the general election?

    If that is the case, states like PA, WI, MN and other swing states could completely sway the election. I know the Deep State will stop at nothing to get rid of our President, but wouldn’t SCOTUS have a say? I always remember Rush saying He will let us know when to panic, not trying to be a downer, but I am feeling that now. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

      Vote by mail, like absentee, is allowed if you meet certain requirements (like being out of the country, in the hospital, in the military, etc.). You have to request it. What the Democrats want is for vote by mail to be the standard, and for everyone who is registered to vote to automatically receive a ballot in the mail, which is ripe for fraud with un-purged voter rolls or outright mailbox theft (see you neighbor with a Trump yard sign, steal their mailed ballot and send it back with Biden marked prior to Election Day).

        The first point is key especially for Blue States to stuff the ballot box via their sanctuary areas to create the electoral college nullification situation, whereby States Controlled by Democrat (veto proof) legislatures can mandate electoral college votes go to national popular vote winner.

If a volunteer messes up, they maybe pay a fine, but probably just get told to go away. Where you’re held accountable, you do better work.

          Most Western countries have an apolitical voters register which controls who gets a vote and where they vote. ID is usually needed to get on the register. Paper ballots marked with a pencil X are usually sufficient.

      • No system is foolproof, but I’ve lived in WA both before and since vote-by-mail, and I definitely prefer VBM. It’s convenient to do, and in a nation where half the eligible voters don’t even bother (49% cast votes in 2018) that should matter. It saves the taxpayers money, and 15% more WA voters participate than before. It didn’t happen overnight, and each county voted whether or not to participate. We used to have some counties with it, and some with traditionally staffed polling places.

        https://www.sos.wa.gov/elections/faq_vote_by_mail.aspx

        There’s less vote fraud in WA now compared to the systems we used to use, because residents are required to provide documents in person proving not only residence but citizenship before they can register. Registration is therefore performed only by County Auditor staff, and they are better trained to spot fraudulent documents.

        It’s a heckuva lot safer than having some minimum wage guy with a clipboard sign you up outside the grocery store, or getting registered by renewing your drivers license. In order to get away with a fraudulent vote here, you have to have top-quality forged documents, and such items aren’t cheap or easy to obtain. The expensive inconvenience provides a deterrent against the crime. Plus, the ballots are stored and re-examined. Yes, every contest here features some fraudulent votes – sometimes a DOZEN of them! They normally get caught after the fact, before certification.

        I’m not suggesting our system would work for every state, however. WA is mostly sparsely-populated, and residents here are older than the national average. VBM addresses some problems unique to that sort of group. Hand-counting is more feasible than it would be in California or Texas.

While Reagan came out to greet him the cold, in his business suit looking like the perfect picture of health and vitality. What a contrast.

          He did not run as a “moderate”, though he did campaign against a gasoline tax enacted by our former R[INO] governor Corbett. Not surprisingly, he did nothing about the gasoline tax once elected but started championing an oil and gas extraction tax.

          You might recall the Jerry Sandusky affair… At the time, the former R[INO] governor was very vocal in calling for Joe Paterno to be fired for his alleged failings with respect to all of that; “remember the little boy in the shower” was his rallying cry. Those of you who know the details obviously know that Paterno passed away soon after. I don’t recall exactly when relative to Paterno’s passing, but eventually the “little boy in the shower” stood up and said that the incident in the shower wasn’t what it was made out to be. Nevermind that he took money paid out by PSU to Sandusky’s alleged victims, that was all enough in the minds of Pittsburgh-area yinzers and Central PA “Hills-Have-Eyes” types that worship at the altar of American Football to blame Corbett for being eager to put Paterno in an early grave.

    The FBI’s top agent has as much as $5 million in personal cash invested in varying sectors in Russia, according to details provided by FBI brass and documents obtained by the Thomas Paine Podcast and the Moore Paine Show on Patreon. And also troubling about Wray’s investments in Russia? Wray has never removed himself from presiding over the FBI’s Russia collusion investigation of President Trump; the Mueller probe into Russia interference in the 2016 election, Russian allegations in the bogus Steele dossier, Russian ties to the Gen. Mike Flynn investigation, Russian advertising during the 2016 election, and criminal FBI cases involving and targeting Russian nationals and entities.”

    Wonder no hope this is true!

    “Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Margaret Garnett, the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Investigation (“DOI”), announced the arrest of RONALD ROMANO for attempting to deceive and price gouge New York City (the “City”) into paying him and his co-conspirators approximately $45 million for personal protective equipment that ROMANO did not possess and was not authorized to sell. ROMANO committed this scheme in an attempt to exploit NYC as it was trying to manage the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and obtain these resources to help protect the lives of hospital and other frontline workers. ROMANO is charged in a criminal Complaint, unsealed today, with one count of conspiring to commit wire fraud, one count of wire fraud, and one count of conspiring to violate the Defense Production Act. ROMANO will be presented this afternoon in Manhattan federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang.”

Should have been investigated and impeached/stripped of his position. Or is 2 years not long enough to get evidence and charge? Instead he got the slap on the wrist of being made to recuse. That’ll teach him.

    Ground report, Long Island NY. I’m about 17 miles outside of NYC.

    Despite what you’re likely hearing on the news “Long Island” is no more open today than it was yesterday. Adopting phase I is akin to what we’ve already been doing.

    Only difference is now you can have non essential surgeries, which while important doesn’t do sh$t for the millions who live here. Oh and outside construction which never really stopped anyway. No work, most stores closed, no planned outside stuff like parks or pools & Must wear masks. And it’s getting frigging hot.

    I saw a tweet earlier that suggested there should be a period where COSTCO, Walmart etc should close & allow only small businesses to be open.

    “During my three decades of service in law enforcement, I learned firsthand that most local, state, and federal law enforcement officers deserve the high confidence people place in them, but also that even the best law enforcement officers make mistakes, and that some engage in willful misconduct.”
    “Independent law enforcement investigations, judicial review, and congressional oversight are important checks on the discretion of agents and prosecutors. We can only hope to maintain public confidence if we correct mistakes, hold wrongdoers accountable, and adopt policies to prevent problems from recurring.”

    The next logical step in the vote by mail scheme is the “remote voting” scheme.

    Vote by; mail, cell phone APP, e-mail, voting web site, telephone via voice recognition ….

    Vote by Mail is just the first step down the road towards an essentially “appointed” president. Karl Marx’s “religion as the opiate of the masses” is now on the path to being “political parties as the opiate of the masses”.
