  2. South Carolina Ballots Found In Baltimore As Voter Fraud Concerns Grow WILLIAM DAVIS REPORTER May 21, 20201:34 PM ET A batch of absentee ballots intended for South Carolina voters were spotted in Baltimore, according to reports Wednesday. Roughly 20 Charleston County absentee ballots were found in Maryland, according to a report Wednesday from The Post and Courier. South Carolina Election Commission spokesman Chris Whitmire told The Post and Courier that the vendor the state uses to print absentee ballots may not be able to handle the uptick in mail-in-voting that will come as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. South Carolina is set to hold its Republican primary elections on June 9. “We’re not getting a warm and fuzzy feeling that they can handle this,” Whitmire said. “We are actively seeking sustainable solutions.” The state is now considering cutting ties with the vendor, according to Emily Opilo of The Baltimore Sun, who also reported that an “entire county” in South Carolina did not receive ballots in the state’s Democratic presidential primary, which took place in February. The ballot mixup comes as Democrats and Republicans in Washington D.C. battle over funding for mail-in-voting ahead of November’s presidential election. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has proposed $3.6 billion in funding for mail-in voting, which is likely to be rejected by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans, who argue that mail-in-voting increases the likelihood of voter fraud. The Trump War Room tweeted Thursday that the South Carolina mixup is an example of how mail-in-voting weakens “the integrity of our elections.” A majority of U.S. voters believe that mail-in-voting will lead to increased voter fraud, according to a poll conducted by the Republican National Committee (RNC) earlier this month. The poll found that 62% of voters believe fraud occurs in U.S. elections, while 57% of voters are concerned about the integrity of elections dominated by mail-in-voting. The conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) studied voter rolls in 21 states, and concluded in a 2017 report that as many as 45,000 duplicate votes may have been cast in the 2016 election, while left-wing organizations such as The Brennan Center for Justice have concluded that the rate of voter fraud may be as small as 0.0003 percent and 0.0025 percent.
  3. Looting a Target and an Autozone is a rebellion? That's nothing short of stupid.
  4. This guy received 3.....
  5. I'd think reported posts are way down in this forum. I'd suspect the ratio to be about 50/50 despite the fact the left is far outnumbered by the right.
  6. Is Facebook a publisher? In public it says no, but in court it says yes In its defense against a former app startup, Facebook is contradicting its long-held claim to be simply a neutral platform Sam Levin in Redwood City A lawsuit is claiming Mark Zuckerberg developed a ‘fraudulent scheme’ to exploit users’ personal data. Photograph: The Asahi Shimbun/The Asahi Shimbun via Getty Images Facebook has long had the same public response when questioned about its disruption of the news industry: it is a tech platform, not a publisher or a media company. But in a small courtroom in California’s Redwood City on Monday, attorneys for the social media company presented a different message from the one executives have made to Congress, in interviews and in speeches: Facebook, they repeatedly argued, is a publisher, and a company that makes editorial decisions, which are protected by the first amendment. The contradictory claim is Facebook’s latest tactic against a high-profile lawsuit, exposing a growing tension for the Silicon Valley corporation, which has long presented itself as neutral platform that does not have traditional journalistic responsibilities. The suit, filed by an app startup, alleges that Mark Zuckerberg developed a “malicious and fraudulent scheme” to exploit users’ personal data and force rival companies out of business. Facebook, meanwhile, is arguing that its decisions about “what not to publish” should be protected because it is a “publisher”. In court, Sonal Mehta, a lawyer for Facebook, even drew comparison with traditional media: “The publisher discretion is a free speech right irrespective of what technological means is used. A newspaper has a publisher function whether they are doing it on their website, in a printed copy or through the news alerts.”
  7. I'll let the history books tell that tale.
  8. Blacks do more to perpetuate the stereotypes of blacks than any other race. Obama is the greatest of all examples.
