The Justice Department sent a letter to a Pennsylvania county on Thursday, ordering it to change its practices after multiple military ballots were found discarded. The issue surfaced earlier in the day when the DOJ announced that it had recovered a small number of discarded ballots. While the Justice Department would not say where they had found the ballots, they did say there were nine recovered -- seven of which were cast for President Trump, while the other two were sealed by Luzerne County before the FBI recovered them, In his letter to Luzerne County officials, U.S. attorney David Freed indicated that additional ballot materials were found in a dumpster.

Democrats have been pushing mail in voting for months now. Now of course many thought that was to do things like increase their ability to ballot harvest and/or “find” ballots to make up for any vote differences they might need to make up after the election. But just like with embracing the BLM and not calling out the riots then finding later they had to pivot because Americans were blaming Democrats, they’re now making another “emergency pivot,” according to Axios.

Another Arab country will sign a peace deal with Israel in the “next day or two,” a senior US diplomat said Wednesday. “Our plan is to bring more countries, which we will have more being announced very soon … One [country will sign] in the next day or two,” US Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft told Al Arabiya. “I know others are going to be following,” she added. The United Arab Emirates announced in August a deal with Israel to establish diplomatic ties and normalize relations. Bahrain followed suit and the three countries signed the Abraham Accords at the White House on Sept. 15.

The “primary sub-source” for the Steele dossier was suspected of being a possible Russian agent and a “threat to national security,” according to newly declassified FBI documents. Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) announced the revelations on Thursday after the Justice Department declassified a footnote of the DOJ Inspector General Report on FISA abuse by the FBI. That report focused on efforts by FBI agents to obtain FISA warrants to surveil Trump-campaign adviser Carter Page, and concluded that two applications to renew such warrants were not valid because of “material misstatements and omission” of evidence.

A Louisville Metro Police major blasted Black Lives Matter protesters and Antifa as 'punks' who will always be living in their parents' basement, working in Walmart or 'washing our cars' in a message to colleagues last month. Maj. Bridget Hallahan, who is white and commands the city's Fifth Division, allegedly claimed that police officers in the city and their families are also being 'doxed'. She invited cops in her division to come to her office to 'vent together' and called on them not to 'validate' the protesters or to 'make them important'.

Paunchy former New Jersey governor Chris Christie once threatened to sit on Mike Bloomberg—during a bizarre, jealous rant involving the Queen of England. The asinine threat is alleged in former governor David Paterson’s dishy new memoir, “Black, Blind & in Charge.” It was July 8, 2010. Paterson was leading New York and Christie was the Garden State’s top exec as they awaited the arrival of Queen Elizabeth at Ground Zero, where the royal was to lay a wreath. Then-New York City Mayor Bloomberg had yet to arrive, and Christie was seething about the city honcho, Paterson recounts.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has no public events scheduled Thursday — the ninth day in September the Democrat nominee will not be on the campaign trail. Biden’s campaign called a “lid” at 9:20 a.m Thursday morning, meaning that it had no public events or travel scheduled for the rest of the day. A “lid” usually also means the campaign will not conduct press conferences or dispense press releases the remainder of the day. Biden’s team also clarified that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the Democrat vice presidential nominee, had no public events scheduled for Thursday and, therefore, would not be on the campaign trail, either.

It may not look like it to the casual observer, but bull riding is a sort of dance. A good ride appears as one fluid motion of a rider in sync with a bucking ton of hoof, hide, and horn. It’s a lightning-fast choreography that’s as dangerous as it is beautiful. The basics of the sport are simple: hang on with one hand, keep the other hand free, and try to stay on for eight seconds. But actually doing all three, well, that ain’t so easy. Professional bull riders have to train both their bodies and minds to excel at this injury-prone sport.

Let me ask that again: With 350,000 dead registered voters across 42 states — including three critical swing states — to one state allowing ballots to be counted up to nine days after election day, what the heck is going on with America’s presidential election process?

With the election just 40 days away, the pitched battle between the Democrat Party and Donald Trump over the safety (integrity, security, validity; you pick) of mail-in voting, among other charges of voter fraud, continues to intensify.
