California’s 21st Congressional District was the last district to be called in the 2018 election, with Democrat T.J. Cox defeating incumbent Republican David Valadao one month after election day. In a year of crazy election news, their rematch has become even more chaotic. (Snip) But in less than two years in Congress, Cox has amassed quite a reputation for corruption. He had falsely listed two homes, including one in Maryland, as his primary residence, against federal tax rules. Both the Internal Revenue Service and the state of California filed liens against Cox for a total of $175,000 in unpaid taxes.

Democrat corruption gets almost no media coverage. This guy should be ousted.

Hopefully it will be one of several, particularly in CA, that turn back to Republican column. Need to get Young Kim in CA-39 and Michelle Steele in CA-48, both Korean-American women.

The article refers to Cox being elected in the "blue wave", not mentioning ballot harvesting. For this District in 2018 they just had to fabricate less than 900 ballots to put Cox over the top. Let's see what happens this time.

It's almost reassuring to hear that we have good ol' graft and bribe taking politicians. Like Congresscritter Cox and Joe Biden and his family bag man.

Pennsylvania rejects 372K mail-in ballot

Pennsylvania has rejected over 370,000 applications for mail-in ballots, most of which were duplicate requests, according to a report by ProPublica and the Philadelphia Inquirer. The battleground state's election offices rejected 372,000 requests for mail-in ballots, according to the report. About 90 percent of the denied application requests were duplicates, and one out of every five requests have been rejected. Voters in the Keystone State can indicate to election officials if they would like mail-in ballot when they vote during their primary. And issues arose when voters duplicated those requests after asking for a ballot in the general election during

Virginia, Minnesota - Ask Larry Cuffe why, after decades of voting for Democrats, he voted for Donald Trump four years ago, and he’ll talk about his distrust of Hillary Clinton and the need to get northern Minnesota’s mines back to work. Ask the former police officer why he’s sticking with Trump in 2020 and the list is very much longer. “The Democratic party left us. Even in the past four years it’s changed so much. Supporting people who riot? Defunding the police? That’s crazy. I think a lot of us up here are Democrats in Republican clothing now,” he said. Cuffe

As the pandemic drags on into its eighth month, many companies have given up on back-to-the-office timelines and realize remote work, when possible, will continue indefinitely (or at least until summer of 2021). And companies want their workers to be comfortable – and more importantly, productive – so to that end some have given remote work stipends to employees to pay for expenses such as new office furniture and supplies for their home offices. Big tech firms including Google, Twitter, Facebook, and Shopify are among them. But that generosity isn’t that common: only 1 in 10 employers have offered workers

PARIS — A student said he warned his teacher about showing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, considered blasphemous by Muslims, days before he was decapitated on a Paris street in what French President Emmanuel Macron called an "Islamist terrorist attack." (Snip) "I didn't expect a decapitation — it went too far," he said, speaking shortly after the incident with the permission of his parents. Neither the victim or the attacker, who police said was an 18-year-old of Chechen heritage, has been named by French authorities. The suspect was shot dead by police shortly after the attack.

Poll after poll may give Democratic nominee Joe Biden the advantage next month, but Democrats still have some fears. While Democrats have made voter registration and flat-out voting a major message throughout their pushes for Biden, Republicans have still so far been winning the voter registration game. Democrats haven't publicly acknowledged their shortcomings, but at least one is privately sounding the alarm, Thomas B. Edsall relays in an opinion column for The New York Times. Both national and swing-state polls continue to give Biden an advantage over President Trump this November, with FiveThirtyEight's presidential tracker showing Biden with an 87

MIAMI — NBC has been rocked by an internal feud over its decision to host a town hall with Donald Trump at the same time as ABC’s Thursday event with Joe Biden, a scheduling move that critics contend is a gift to the president after he refused to participate in a debate originally scheduled for Thursday. The internal conflict extends to the highest levels of NBCUniversal, where MSNBC head Phil Griffin strongly disagreed with NBC News President Noah Oppenheim’s decision to unilaterally move forward with the town hall during that time slot, according to three high-ranking sources at the TV

In the buttoned-down field of survey research, Warren Mitofsky is remembered as something of a legend. In the 1960s, he developed the exit poll for CBS News, a technique in which voters are interviewed as they leave polling places. Mitofsky, who died in 2006, also helped initiate random-digit dialing by telephone, a randomized sampling method that revolutionized survey-taking and was polling’s gold standard for years. (Snip) Poll-inspired cockiness certainly helps explain the deep shock that accompanied Donald Trump’s election four years ago. The cockiest poll-related moment of the 2016 campaign centered around a vow by Samuel Wang, the neuroscientist who

Conservatives have erupted in anger after NBC's Savannah Guthrie grilled Donald Trump with a 'question every 12 seconds' while ABC's George Stephanopoulos was accused of forgetting to ask Joe Biden about his son Hunter's emails.Trump and Biden both held their town halls Thursday evening, with viewers forced to choose between the clashing timetables after the president scheduled his to go head to head with his competitor. On NBC, Trump was asked about coronavirus, QAnon, his own diagnosis and his taxes by Guthrie while, on ABC, Biden spoke LGBTQ rights, court packing and the 1994 crime bill with Stephanopoulos.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says that Democrats will not supply a quorum with which to advance the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Schumer defended this move, saying that Barrett’s nomination is “illegitimate, dangerous and unpopular.” There’s no point debating Schumer on these partisan claims. The question is whether the Democrats can block Barrett’s nomination through this ploy.I don’t think they can. A quorum in the full Senate is 51 members. In the Judiciary Committee it’s nine members including two from the minority party.

In yet another glaring example that today’s Democrat Party is not the same Democrat Party of not all that long ago, Joe Biden pledged on Friday to sign the so-called “Equality Act” — a bill would that force public schools to allow biological boys who identify as transgender girls to compete in girls’ sports. Let’s just let that sink in for a moment. As the Daily Caller reported, the Equality Act passed the House with unanimous support from Democrats in May 2019 but didn’t come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate. This is yet another example of what will happen to this country if Biden wins the White House

Facebook and Twitter sacrificed the final shreds of their integrity to try to censor the N.Y. Post article revealing the existence of Hunter Biden's laptop. But in their rush to throw themselves in the path of the bullet to save Joe, there was a big problem. They forgot that Rudy Giuliani has the evidence. The N.Y. Post article was an exclusive. That means all "fact checkers" that Facebook and Twitter will unleash to fact-check the article will be based on speculation, not fact. Because they don't have the laptop. And, judging from a new video from Giuliani, things may be about to explode

Arguably the biggest sensation to come out of the debacle of a town hall NBC had with President Trump was the so-called “nodding lady.” Positioned directly behind the President’s left shoulder for one of the most widely used camera angles, she was applauded by some and attacked by others for nodding her head and displaying thumbs up in agreement when the President answered many of the attack questions posed to him by Savannah Guthrie. But she wasn’t originally positioned there. Before the town hall began, a Caucasian lady was originally positioned there.

WASHINGTON— The FBI is investigating whether emails that were published by the New York Post related to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, are connected to a possible Russian influence operation to spread disinformation, according to a person familiar with the matter. The newspaper said in its story Wednesday that it had obtained a hard drive from Rudy Giuliani containing the emails, and that the messages were found on a laptop that had been left last year at a Delaware computer repair shop for service but never retrieved. The unlikely account of how the emails surfaced raised immediate questions about Russian involvement, particularly because U.S. officials have warned that Russia —
