    If you don't like to vote for Trump or Biden you can always vote:

    Third-party presidential candidates in 2020



    • Jo Jorgensen, Libertarian Party
    • Howie Hawkins, Green Party
    • Kanye West, Birthday Party
    • Rocky De La Fuente, Alliance and Reform Parties
    • Don Blankenship, Constitution Party

      Like Mitt Romney did?

    An interesting insight into how the Trump Campaign attempts to raise funds form it's 'supporter' base.

    ---

    2020 US Presidential Race-21102020-trump-intro-desktop-1-jpg



    All the President’s spam

    The first email landed four months ago with the subject line: “If not NOW, then when?”


    The sender was Brad Parscale, who was at that time US President Donald Trump’s campaign manager.

    I just spoke with President Trump and I’ve got some bad news. We reviewed the most recent donor list and he noticed that your name STILL WASN’T ON IT.
    I want President Trump to know that he still has your full support, which is why if you step up in the NEXT 30 MINUTES, I’ll guarantee that your name is at the TOP of the next list he sees.


    It was to be the first of many more Trump campaign emails that have since landed in my inbox — all of them misdirected, most intended for someone named Sarah.

    In the beginning, I was receiving about five a day.
    But lately, as election day approaches, it’s been more like a dozen.
    Cumulatively, there are now over 1,400 in my inbox, and still they keep coming.

    They bark at you. They cajole you. Sometimes they even attempt to flatter you.

    They try to flog you t-shirts, MAGA caps, Trump-Pence beer glasses and autographed footballs.
    Like spam, they were unsolicited and, at first, unwelcome.

    But when Donald Trump appears at your virtual front door rattling the can for spare change, it’s hard to look away.

    There is a pronounced IQ divide between those on TD who support Trump and those who don't.

    For the Trump supporters "pronounced" means noticeable.

    Pronoun Primary: 2020 Dems Are Talking Gender Identity | RealClearPolitics

    Pronoun Primary: 2020 Dems Are Talking Gender Identity




    It was an awkward lesson in the new progressive grammar of the left.


    Sen. Kamala Harris walked on stage at the LGBTQ Town Hall hosted by the Human Rights Campaign and made an introduction. “Thank you, guys,” the California Democrat told the audience. “My pronouns are she, her, and hers.”


    That is when the crowd went wild, and when Chris Cuomo stepped in it. “Mine too,” the CNN host joked. The crowd did not like it. Neither did Harris, who replied curtly, “All right.”


    But that wasn't the end for Cuomo. Progressive outrage poured down on Twitter, and he was forced to issue an apology a day later:


    “PLEASE READ: When Sen. Harris said her pronouns were, she her and hers, I said mine too. I should not have. I apologize. I am an ally of the LGBTQ community, and I am sorry because I am committed to helping us achieve equality. Thank you for watching our townhall.”


    The problem, some would argue, was that Cuomo is a white straight man. His preferred pronouns are not feminine; they are the masculine he, him, his -- a lower classification on the ziggurat of the left’s protected classes. By casually cracking a joke, Cuomo had come dangerously close to bigotry, even homophobia, a serious offense for a journalist covering what could become the presidential primary of gender identity.
    Harris is clearly a htransphobe. Opening up saying "Thank you, guys"?

    Chris Cuomo stepped in it. “Mine too,"
    What a crap world we live in now when a throwaway one liner like this needs a formal apology

    Here's Where The Threat Of Militia Activity Around The Elections Is The Highest

    Five states — Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Oregon — have the highest risk of seeing increased militia activity around the elections: everything from demonstrations to violence.


    That's the conclusion of a new report by ACLED, a crisis-mapping project, and the research group MilitiaWatch. They worked together to map out potential hot spots for militia-style activities around the elections.


    Their report looks at states where militias have had recruitment drives and training, where they have cultivated relationships with law enforcement and where there has been substantial engagement in anti-coronavirus-lockdown protests.


    Those factors are local indicators of whether militia activity might occur. For example, cultivating relationships with police suggests that law enforcement might view the militia groups as helpful, rather than a threat. And anti-coronavirus-lockdown protests are linked to militia activity because many of those groups believe that the state doesn't have the authority to impose such restrictions.

    The report comes out as the risk of political violence around Election Day by vigilantes or militia-style groups is increasing, researchers say. Far-right, militia-style groups have been busy this year: Their numbers are growing, their online chatter is increasing and their threats are becoming more specific.


    "In the conversations that I observe, the heat is higher. The vitriol is greater," said Megan Squire, a computer science professor at Elon University who studies right-wing extremism and online spaces.


    The range of real-world militia activities that could occur include everything from armed demonstrations to voter intimidation to violence. The rhetoric is heated, in part, because a mosaic of groups on the far right with different goals agree on one thing: that President Trump can lose the election only if it's rigged.


    "There's circulation of rumors of left-wing intervention at the polls or in the election, which has led to individuals and militia groups discussing primarily showing up armed at the polls, like to see if there's anything suspicious or what they deem suspicious," said Hampton Stall, the founder of MilitiaWatch, which tracks the right-wing militia movement.


    The commentary and planning are getting harder to track online. Facebook and Twitter have cracked down on militia-style groups, but such groups have moved the conversation to other places. Those places include social media networks that are more permissive with the groups' content and discussion boards where militia members can meet and organize.

    "It becomes a lot harder for people like me and my colleagues to track them, because we watch them kind of splinter into other places," said Cassie Miller, a senior research analyst at the Southern Poverty Law Center.


    The threats by militia-style groups have been growing in number, vitriol and specificity — culminating in things like the alleged plot by six men in Michigan to kidnap that state's governor, Gretchen Whitmer.


    "There's a lot more worst-case-scenario thinking that is leading to fantasizing about violence and very real militarized action that hasn't really been as widespread in the militia movement as it is now," said Stall.


    A patchwork of federal and state laws against voter intimidation exists to protect the process.


    And voting rights activists say they worry that the attention generated by the militias could depress voter turnout. They say that even if there is an increased risk of militia activity, it is important to keep it in perspective.


    The risk, says Gerry Hebert of the Campaign Legal Center, is that people may be afraid to go to the polls if there is too much hype around militia rhetoric.


    "It is designed to maybe keep people from showing up because they fear that there might be some activity, when, in fact, it's just a chilling commentary," he told NPR.


    All of this adds to the tensions in an already deeply contested and divisive election season.
