Can I change my vote?

The “change my vote” phrase hit peak searches right after the second debate on Thursday –hitting the MAX limit of Google trends.

After Biden was caught lying on fracking & vowed to shut down the oil industry, the searches were particularly strong in Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, Georgia, Texas and Wisconsin.

Among the states that do allow voters to change their early ballot after it’s been cast are: Wisconsin; Minnesota; Michigan; Pennsylvania; New York; Connecticut; and Mississippi.

Wisconsin

Wisconsin voters who voted early in person can recast their ballot as long as they do so by Saturday, October 31st. The deadline for absentee varies by city. Contact your city clerk for more information.

Minnesota

Minnesota also allows absentee voters to change their minds. The deadline is a week before the election.

Michigan

In Michigan, absentee voters can change their ballots if they have not yet been processed and tabulated, according to an official at the state’s Bureau of Elections.

If you want to change your absentee vote, contact the office of your city’s clerk’s office. The best chance to change your vote is as soon as possible before 4 p.m. Monday, the day before the election.

Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut and Mississippi: Contact your city clerk to change your vote.

Man who foiled French train terrorist attack is running for Congress

Alek Skarlatos, one of three Americans who foiled a terrorist plot to gun down people on a French express train, is running for Congress.

He is up against an incumbent Democrat who has held his district for 33 years.

Refreshing grass roots campaign.

Instead of quelling the riots, Portland’s mayor will simply move house

One would think after almost 100 days of consecutive protests that the radical left mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, might eventually do something to quell the unrest, violence and murder on his streets.

One might have thought he had worked out back in July that joining the rioters in solidarity only resulted in them heckling and eventually ejecting him. Fail.

When the rioting eventually came to his house this week, that wasn’t a trigger to pull the plug on the destruction. Instead, he will move house. In an email to the other residents of his 114-unit high rise, the mayor expressed his “sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position…It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration.

Does he not think that all he will end up doing is transfer the problem to his new neighbours?

When Trump offered Wheeler federal aid (aka  National Guard), the mayor wrote this open letter.

Dear President Trump:

Yet again, you said you offered to aid Portland by sending in federal law enforcement to our city.

On behalf of the City of Portland: No thanks.

We don’t need your politics of division and demagoguery. Portlanders are onto you. We have already seen your reckless disregard for human life in your bumbling response to the COVID pandemic. And we know you’ve reached the conclusion that images of violence or vandalism are your only ticket to reelection.

There is no place for looting, arson, or vandalism in our city. There is no room here for racist violence or those who wish to bring their ideology of hate into our community. Those who commit criminal acts will be apprehended and prosecuted under the law.

Tens of thousands of Portlanders have peacefully protested and marched for the noble cause of fixing our broken criminal justice system. They are part of the proud progressive tradition of Portlanders fighting for justice – from racial justice to economic justice to environmental justice.

When you sent the Feds to Portland last month, you made the situation far worse. Your offer to repeat that disaster is a cynical attempt to stoke fear and distract us from the real work of our city.

In Portland, we are focused on coming together as a community to solve the serious challenges we face due to systemic racism, a global pandemic and an economic recession.

Stay away, please.

Signed,

Ted Wheeler
Mayor of Portland

As was the hangover this morning, everything is Trump’s fault. Perhaps Wheeler and Oregon Gov Kate Brown might reflect on the response of local law enforcement as to which branch of government has a clue what to do in order to end the civil unrest. That is right. Instead of looking after his constituents, succumbing to Trump Derangement Syndrome was the better option.

Trump’s tweet, “The big backlash going on in Portland cannot be unexpected after 95 days of watching and incompetent Mayor admits that he has no idea what he is doing. The people of Portland won’t put up with no safety any longer. The Mayor is a FOOL. Bring in the National Guard!” was on the money.

Trump also retweeted this criticism of Wheeler: “the useless f**king idiot and comic relief that gets everyone killed in every disaster movie,” adding “Tone down the language, but TRUE!”

Perhaps Mayor Wheeler might heed the words of Winston Churchill:

“An appeaser is one who feeds his friends to a crocodile in the hope it eats him last.”

The truth about Portland

Ami Horowitz hit the streets in Portland to interview the “peaceful” protestors who were, as ABC so eloquently put, “intensified.”

Amazing how few blacks appear to be protesting under the banner of black lives matter which ought to tell us something. Still, those peacefully pushing for change used choice words such as

– violence

– burn it down

– looting

One of the interesting parts of his short clip is around the 3 minute mark where an irate gentleman correctly points out that most of the fools rioting aren’t even black. As we often point out, it’s only social justice warriors who preach to us what needs to be done without consulting the very groups impacted.

That’s a myth!

Politicians will do what politicians do – live in denial.

We didn’t start the fire

Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty turned on the Portland Police blaming its officers for sending in saboteurs to start fires and then falsely accuse peaceful protestors of arson. She has since walked back those remarks justifying it as,

Today I let my emotions get the most of me during council and the comment I made to the press. But I’m angry, frustrated, and horrified by what has happened these past 50 days.”

Isn’t it amazing that absolutely no footage has surfaced of such crimes being committed? Especially in a world where everyone is a roving reporter. Portland Police have even invited council members to join them on the front lines to see for themselves. None have taken up the offer.

Hardesty switched her accusation to Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler for his spineless inaction to prevent federal government officers targeting Portland because it is a sanctuary city.

How do these people get elected? As Daryl Turner, president of the Portland Police Association said,

Politicians bent on power, perpetuating misinformation and untruths, are just as guilty of using their privilege to hijack this movement as the rioters who are committing violent acts, burning, and looting,”

You’ll never guess the party affiliation of Hardesty!

Proud Parents?

How proud these parents must be to have their toddlers carry profane signs to protest Trump?

Even worse their radical parents have taught them how to say “F*ck The Police“.

Insane.

Portland Mayor & Oregon House Rep’s response on having it all under control

Dan Bongino spoke of just how embarrassing Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler’s response has been in his attempts to stop crime in Portland, Oregon. It was followed up by an even more pathetic explanation by Oregon House Rep Earl Blumenauer.

Are these people for real to think they have it ‘all under control’?

Democratic politician pens his own hate crime hoax in Oregon

You have to love it when the very systemic racism we’re told is so rife in America caused a Democratic political candidate, Jonathan Lopez, to pen and post a letter to himself and take his claim of a hate crime to the police because he couldn’t find it in reality.

His letter said,

Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county…we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other f–king Mexicans in the area!

Lopez took to social media to peddle his hate hoax by uploading the letter and claiming he “holds no resentment for whomever wrote this…just simply heartbroken for the lack of knowledge, education, and respect missing…I pray for you and wish you prosperity in your life.”

Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston expressed his dismay after the conclusion of the investigation with the following comment:

The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today…Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media.”

After Lopez admitted his crime he tried to downplay it by saying that things had spiraled out of control. Really? Who knew?

Is this why Democrats want to defund the police so they don’t have the resources to catch out hoaxes?

His case will be forwarded to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office for initiating a false report, a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Welcome to 2020 where the real racists are the very people claiming they’re the victims.

We thought Democrats hated walls?

 

NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio (D) has threatened to fence off the beaches if people don’t exercise social distancing. We thought the Democrats were against walls? Just goes to show that if they didn’t have double standards they would have no standards at all. Recall the mayor’s “dob in your neighbour” hotline which had to be closed after residents spammed it.

Although De Blasio has nothing on Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) who has threatened to cut off the water and electricity of businesses which don’t comply with lockdown laws!

We wrote yesterday about what was going on in the state of Oregon where child protective services were sent to the home of a hair salon owner in violation of operating despite the lockdown laws.

We are not quite sure how much longer Americans are prepared to tolerate this dystopian nightmare. We can’t believe that a country that is founded on “freedom” can endure months of being fenced off,  forced to wear masks in public, have utilities suspended or be paid unexpected visits by child protective services to force compliance of draconian laws will wash well over time.

We are putting together a piece on “Am I a Despot or Not?” which looks at each state in isolation and whether governors are a little too exuberant in their use of powers given the relative statistics surrounding coronavirus. The data collection so far has some definite strong candidates for our newly created Enver Hoxha Award. You may be surprised at some of the results which show partisan lines sometimes cross.
