Rank-and-file union members snub Biden for Trump

Rank-and-file union members snub Biden for Trump --In some unions, especially the building trades, support for the president remains solid despite the efforts of labor leaders to convince members otherwise. --Union leaders said Biden's past support for the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Trans-Pacific Partnership hurt him. | 22 Sept 2020 | Joe Biden has pitched himself to voters as a "union man," a son of Scranton, Pa., who respects the dignity of work and will defend organized labor if he wins the White House. To rank-and-file members in some unions, especially the building trades, it doesn't matter. They're still firmly in Donald Trump's camp. Labor leaders have worked for months to sell their members on Biden, hoping to avoid a repeat of 2016 when Donald Trump outperformed among union members and won the White House. But despite a bevy of national union endorsements for Biden and years of what leaders call attacks on organized labor from the Trump administration, local officials in critical battleground states said support for Trump remains solid.

The Passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the Correct Call to 'Fill That Seat!'

The Passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the Correct Call to 'Fill That Seat!' By CLG Founder, Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. | 20 Sept 2020 | U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed on Sept. 18. Ginsburg, a feminist and role model for some women across America, is being lauded as a "legal giant" and "trailblazer," accolades being doled out across political boundaries. Ginsburg was dedicated to jurisprudence tasks, even pouring over legal briefs from her hospital bed.But what did Ginsburg trailblaze, and in what sense was she a legal giant? ...As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) pointed out on "Hannity" on Sept. 18, it's imperative for Trump to act with urgency on any SCOTUS replacement. Hillary Clinton has stated that Joe Biden shouldn't concede the 2020 presidential election "under any circumstances." That would mean that, without a replacement, the election could be decided by a 4-to-4 Supreme Court. Conservatives and Trump supporters certainly can't rely on Bush's John Roberts to side with Trump in any disputed 2020 election outcomes. The same deep-state elements who in 2000 demanded the installation of George W. Bush (Democrats and establishment Republicans) will be adapting a "by any means necessary" mantra for Joe Biden's installation in 2020. The only difference is that the candidate is a Democrat, and their battle positions will be buttressed by a ubiquitous, deeply biased social media.

Trump: 'Very close' to Supreme Court decision, will announce nominee Saturday --He appears to have enough Senate Republicans to get a quick vote. | 22 Sept 2020 | While President Donald Trump is expected to wait until Saturday to announce his Supreme Court nominee, he said Tuesday he's already "very close" to making a final decision. During a Tuesday interview with Fox television stations, Trump cited public services to honor the life of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday, as the reason for delaying his announcement. "I would say that I’m very close to making it a decision in my own mind and I'm going to reveal it on Saturday," Trump said. "I'm doing that out of respect for Justice Ginsburg, you're having a service on Thursday, so I didn't really want to do anything to cut into the service."

Poll worker firing for not wearing a mask sues Wisconsin governor

Poll worker firing for not wearing a mask sues Wisconsin governor | 22 Sept 2020 | A Wisconsin man is suing a LaCrosse city clerk and Gov. Tony Evers (D) after he was dismissed from a paid poll worker position for refusing to wear a mask at a voting precinct, citing a medical condition. The LaCrosse Tribune reported Tuesday that Nicholas Newmann is suing Clerk Teri Lehrke as well as Evers over his Aug. 11 dismissal, which his lawyers wrote in court documents came as a result of Lehrke enforcing Ever's statewide mask mandate which his lawyers argue is unconstitutional. "The American system of government contains three branches, not one. For those who might say the governor must do 'something,' the founders divided power for a reason: They had left behind a king's rule. Power is divided on purpose so that it cannot be exercised so easily," Newmann's lawyer told the Tribune in a statement regarding the lawsuit.

Pair busted with gun, 200 rounds of ammunition ahead of Trump rally in Ohio

Pair busted with gun, 200 rounds of ammunition ahead of Trump rally in Ohio --Suspects found by airport with Glock, pitchfork ----Divisons were charged with making terroristic threats, carrying a concealed weapon, inducing panic and criminal trespassing | 22 Sept 2020 | A Virginia couple was busted while allegedly carrying a gun and 200 rounds of ammunition, along with a pitchfork and shovels, ahead of a Trump campaign rally Monday night in Ohio, authorities said. John C. Davison, 38, and Vicki M. Davison, 33, were spotted by a Toledo Executive Airport employee walking on the railroad tracks behind the airport in Lake Township, the Sentinel-Tribune reported. The worker said the couple had a backpack and shovels. Police "converged" on the pair and took them into custody without incident, Lake Township Police Chief Mark Hummer told the newspaper. The Davisons allegedly had on them two shovels, a pitchfork and a backpack stuffed with a Glock pistol with an extended magazine, as well as 200 rounds of ammunition and four tourniquets, Hummer said... Their arrest prompted a two-and-a-half-hour lockdown of the Lake Local Schools buildings, as Secret Service and FBI conducted an investigation, Hummer said.

FBI agent who found Hillary Clinton's emails on Anthony Weiner's laptop says agency bosses sat on the discovery for a month and told him to ERASE his findings

FBI agent who found Hillary Clinton's emails on Anthony Weiner's laptop says 'immoral' agency bosses sat on the discovery for a month and told him to ERASE his findings until he went direct to the US Attorney | 21 Sept 2020 | An FBI agent who found the messages that led to the Hillary Clinton email investigation being reopened days before the 2016 election said the way the bureau handled the case was 'not ethically or morally right'. John Robertson feared he would be made a 'scapegoat' when he found the new emails less than two months before voting day, in the wake of DailyMail.com's revelation that Anthony Weiner, whose wife Huma Abedin was Clinton's top aide, was sexting an underage girl. Robertson watched nervously as the bureau did nothing for a month until he went outside the chain of command and spoke with the US Attorney's office overseeing the case. The only advice from his bosses was to erase his office computer, which meant leaving no record of his investigations, a new book says... The claims add another layer of intrigue to the investigation of Clinton's emails which has become one of the most divisive episodes of the 2016 election. They appear inOctober Surprise: How the FBI Tried to Save Itself and Crashed an Election, which will be published on September 22 by PublicAffairs.

Mitt Romney (R-Utah) signaled on Tuesday that he is open to confirming a Supreme Court nominee this year, solidifying GOP support for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) vow to hold a vote on President Trump's nominee...Romney's decision is a blow to Senate Democrats and a boon to McConnell, with both sides watching him closely as a potential swing vote on bringing up whomever Trump nominates to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat just weeks before a presidential election... So far only two GOP senators have said they do not support moving a nomination before the Nov. 3 election: Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska).

Trump meets with potential Supreme Court pick Amy Coney Barrett at White House

Trump meets with potential Supreme Court pick Amy Coney Barrett at White House | 21 Sept 2020 | Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who has emerged as a favorite to be nominated for the vacant Supreme Court seat, met Monday at the White House with President Trump, according to a person familiar with the selection process. Barrett's meeting with Trump further cements her status as one of the front-runners to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday of pancreatic cancer.

Judge extends Wisconsin's mail-in voting deadline

Judge extends Wisconsin's mail-in voting deadline | 21 Sept 2020 | A federal judge ruled on Monday that Wisconsin must extend its deadlines for accepting mail-in ballots and for voters to register. Judge William Conley, of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, ruled that an injunction against the state's election laws is "necessary to avoid an untenable impingement on Wisconsin citizens' right to vote, including the near certainty of disenfranchising tens of thousands of voters relying on the state’s absentee ballot process." He ordered the state to accept ballots received on or before Nov. 9, as long as they are postmarked on or before Election Day, extending the previous deadline for mail-in ballots that was set for October 29.

Judge rejects Trump campaign challenge to Nevada mail-in voting expansion

Judge rejects Trump campaign challenge to Nevada mail-in voting expansion | 21 Sept 2020 | A federal judge in Nevada threw out a lawsuit from President Trump's campaign challenging the state's expansion of mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic. Judge James Mahan dismissed the case on Friday, ruling that the campaign's list of potential harms from the new Nevada law were overly speculative and amounted to little more than policy disagreements with state officials. "Although they purport to allege constitutional harms that go beyond these policy disagreements, at this juncture, plaintiffs' allegations remain just that," wrote Mahan, who was appointed to the federal district court in Nevada by former President [sic] George W. Bush.

Grassley and Johnson told the Senate Intelligence Committee they also wanted records related to the CIA's contacts with Perkins Coie lawyers Michael Sussmann and Marc Elias. Elias hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which then hired British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the anti-Trump dossier. Both Sussmann and Elias had contact with Steele during the 2016 election.
