    Federal Election Commission

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency of the United States whose purpose is to enforce campaign finance law in United States federal elections. Created in 1974 through amendments to the Federal Election Campaign Act,[4] the commission describes its duties as "to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections."


    The commission has not functioned since late August 2019, with an exception for the period of May 2020 to July 2020, due to lack of a quorum.[5][6] In the absence of a quorum, the commission cannot vote on complaints or give guidance through advisory opinions. As of May 19, 2020, there were 350 outstanding matters on the agency's enforcement docket and 227 items waiting for action.[7]

    A couple of simple points ...
    • The commission you referred to has not functioned since late August 2019
    • The commission primarily looks at the finance of Elections/Candidates
    • The commission has naught to do with managing the Election as that is a State based function.
    • My observations are above^
    • ...
    • A coalition of federal and state officials said Thursday that they have no evidence that votes were compromised or altered in last week’s presidential election, rejecting unsubstantiated claims of widespread fraud advanced by President Donald Trump and many of his supporters. https://time.com/5911518/2020-electi...ecure-history/

    Twitter needs to just suspend him, these advisory notes are meaningless and ineffective in the face of his torrent of spreading lies and misinformation.

    My view is what he is doing amounts to Treason. But it would be so incendiary to actually charge him with that. Sigh.

    Another Trump appointee/lackey stirring the pot.

    Trump advisor Dr. Scott Atlas accused of ‘inciting violence’ after calling for Michigan to ‘rise up’ against Whitmer’s new order


    President Donald Trump’s top coronavirus advisor, Dr. Scott Atlas, is being accused of sedition and inciting violence by calling for Michigan to “rise up” after Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued new orders to fight the coronavirus pandemic.


    “The only way this stops is if people rise up. You get what you accept,” Atlas, who is a radiologist – not an epidemiologist – tweeted Sunday night. He added the hashtags “#FreedomMatters” and “#StepUp” to his tweet.

    He is divorced and has been dating a Canadian singer songwriter named Grimes since 2018. Their kid was born this year as well.

    Someone is going to get killed over this shit:

    He is simply setting up the stage for "the presidency was stolen from us" " "the fight continues to take the Whitehouse back in 2024" ""they will try to shut as down by taking me to court over trumped up charges , send me money to defend us" "republicans toe the line or if I am back in 2024 you are toast"

    He does not care what it will do to the country, he is a sociopath , for him everything is transactional.

    He was complaining because he had two negative and two positive quick tests. He had had a more reliable one and was waiting for the result so if he's got it, I think he knows.

    Trump Sought Options for Attacking Iran to Stop Its Growing Nuclear Program

    WASHINGTON — President Trump asked senior advisers in an Oval Office meeting on Thursday whether he had options to take action against Iran’s main nuclear site in the coming weeks. The meeting occurred a day after international inspectors reported a significant increase in the country’s stockpile of nuclear material, four current and former U.S. officials said on Monday.


    A range of senior advisers dissuaded the president from moving ahead with a military strike. The advisers — including Vice President Mike Pence; Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; Christopher C. Miller, the acting defense secretary; and Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — warned that a strike against Iran’s facilities could easily escalate into a broader conflict in the last weeks of Mr. Trump’s presidency.


    Any strike — whether by missile or cyber — would almost certainly be focused on Natanz, where the International Atomic Energy Agency reported on Wednesday that Iran’s uranium stockpile was now 12 times larger than permitted under the nuclear accord that Mr. Trump abandoned in 2018. The agency also noted that Iran had not allowed it access to another suspected site where there was evidence of past nuclear activity.


    Mr. Trump asked his top national security aides what options were available and how to respond, officials said.


    After Mr. Pompeo and General Milley described the potential risks of military escalation, officials left the meeting believing a missile attack inside Iran was off the table, according to administration officials with knowledge of the meeting.


    Mr. Trump might still be looking at ways to strike Iranian assets and allies, including militias in Iraq, officials said. A smaller group of national security aides had met late Wednesday to discuss Iran, the day before the meeting with the president.


    White House officials did not respond to requests for comment.

    Trump attacking/bombing Iran would have grave consequences in the US . . . lots of Iranians there who wouldn't take kindly to their families being killed. They may have left the country because of the Ayatollahs but they are proud Persians first and foremost

    Fake News?

    DNyuz is an Armenian website that plagiarizes content word for word from major news sources.

    So I thought, even for Trump, that's bizarre ... fake news

    Now it seems Baldy orange loser might be planning to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia.

    Perhaps half a million dead Americans isn't enough for him.

    DNyuz was the only place I could find at the time which was not behind a paywall. I’ll do better in the future.
