Urgency Behind Nevada's New Bill That Expands Mail-in Voting

"News the Nevada Senate approved a bill Sunday to implement a majority mail in election in November. In their argument Senate Democrats asserted that the measure assembly bill four was needed due to concerns over the Chinese corona virus they cited long lines at the pulse. And close contact with others. The measure which was passed with a thirteen eight vote was not supported by any of the Republican members. Well, that's good that the Republicans Nevada still have a backbone president trump then promptly got Nevada to trend on twitter. He said this in an illegal late night coup Nevada's clubhouse governor. Made it impossible for Republicans to win the state president trump wrote on twitter. Post Office could never handle the traffic of male in votes without preparation using Cova distill the state see you in court. The president is one hundred percent right on this. If we allow mandatory mail in voting to happen unchallenged, we are headed for the biggest disaster of an election in our lifetime. There is a reason why the Democrats want mail in voting it is ripe for fraud. People might say, well, Charlie what about absentee voting that is always a small sliver of the amount of votes in the absentee ballots are always the majority of the voter fraud claims as they are. In some states, absentee ballots are anywhere between five to ten percent. Sometimes, there is lows two percent in states like Oregon, which is complete and Total Democrat control. The only way to vote you cannot show up on election day in Oregon. It is all vote by mail and it starts in early October leading up to election day. Because of this Democrats US organizing tactics to be able to do a thing called ballot harvesting ballot harvesting is how in Orange County California Republicans wants controlled five five US congressional seats in Orange County after the last midterm election. Republicans lost all five. Now Republicans were leading some of those seats such as young Kim on election night. But then all of a sudden new ballots were found. Mail in ballots were discovered. And the Republican candidates. Fell behind and behind and eventually lost the race. The way that voting should work is through independent certification with election judges in decentralized fashion to have the most people centered citizen-focused way of voting. What do I mean by that? It means that when you have a local precinct that is in charge of the election for that one precinct, not the post office of the Postal Service you think called election judges, those election judges. Are Bound by the law and they usually represent both political parties Republican. Democrat, to make sure that there's no funny business now, it's not a perfect system voter fraud absolutely exists but a vast majority of voter fraud is almost always voter registration fraud and ballot fraud with absentee voting. So, if we admit that the Democrats are pushing for mail and voting harder than anything they've pushed for in recent memory, the question should be why. They say it safety. Mean that's such nonsense. Worried about people gathering. Then shouldn't they cancel? The local marijuana dispensary or the casinos in Nevada. In Nevada, you are able to go to Caesar's palace in Nevada, you're able to go to the Venetian in Nevada, you can go to a local restaurant. and. They'd say that's perfectly fine if you wear a mask and socially distance. But it's not okay to be able to go to a local polling place. It's not okay to be able to wait six

What Has Changed Since George Floyd

"Protests against racial injustice are motivating some political candidates to take on challenging races. In the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona Democrats are targeting a predominantly white district that has been held by Republicans for nearly a decade. Steve Goldstein from member station Cage's reports. That ethics violations committed by the incumbent could make the race more competitive. Arizona six Congressional district is centered in Scottsdale. Its residents are highly educated, affluent and early 75% white Congressman David Schweikert was reelected by double digits here in 2018. But Schweickart had been under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, and on Thursday he admitted to 11 violations and agreed to pay $50,000 fine Schweickart perspective. Opponents immediately pounced on the news. Here's Democrat Anita Malik. There's a part of me that's glad that we finally have closure to this investigation, but it is so infuriating to see him simply get off with a slap on the wrist. Even before acknowledging the ethics violations, Schweiker was already expected to face an intense general election campaign, in part because of an electorate that wants more action on combating racial injustice. One of the Democrats. Looking to challenge him is African American businessman Carl Gentles. While he believes many here are worried about education and jobs, he says, the killing of George Floyd has led to more direct conversations about racial injustice in the district has seen before. While George, Florida's African American I am an African American, and certainly I can see myself my son, my father, my brother in the face of George Floyd beneath that. Officers NI. I think people can see their own family members, no matter what race they are in the face of tourist Floyd Tianna Chander is one of those people Gentles is describing. She moved into the district eight years ago. Rallies and protests illustrated for her the dramatic need to find solutions. Chandler is middle aged and white. It's not okay to just be silent anymore, and we've got to figure out what the heck got us to this point and how we can try and sort of turned the tide and get rid of some of that racism. Hate Willingness to look the other way when things that we know what an OK continue to happen. Schweickart has been silent on race related topics. But the changing political environment since the killing of George Floyd may force him to talk about them. Erica County, which accounts for 60% of arrows on his population, has seen a clear shift toward more progressive voting in 2018 that included pushing Kirsten cinema to US Senate victory, becoming the first Democrat to win in arrows in a Senate race in nearly 25 years. But it's not just that Phoenix is growing rapidly, more diverse as Quentin James He's the founder and president of collective Pack, which is focused on electing African Americans across the country. There are a ton of suburban white women who are seeing these videos and wondering If those votes for Donald Trump in 2016. If don't do that, again, Republican consultant stand Barnes understands why Democrats are generally optimistic about 2020 here but says it's misplaced in the Phoenix suburbs. I do not think the racially charged politics that we're living in that the moment plays favorably for the Democratic nominee. In that congressional district, in part that it's so overdone, and I think voters are numb to that kind of play. But Quentin James believes that voters now more than any other time in recent history, are looking to choose the best candidate. Whatever color they are part of what folks One also know is Do you hear me? And are you going to fight for me? And it doesn't take white voters to get white candidates just to do that, or Blackwater's only looking for black answer. I think that's the core question, James says. As candidates of color are becoming more common, voters are increasingly more comfortable with choosing them to bring about changes many in the public are calling for for NPR news.

Trump Wants to Ban TikTok, NASA-SpaceX Mission Success, & Unemployment Benefits Expire - Monday, August 3rd

"It's Monday August third president trump wants to ban TIKTOK. Info on the NASA spacex mission success plus unemployment benefits have expired why trump's team is interested in Biden's VP pick and more. Welcome to Rob Song, podcast where I bring you the latest Progressive News and politics and ten minutes or less I'm Robert Cunningham thank you for tuning in. Let's get informed. So president trump announced on Friday night that he wants to ban Tiktok Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that trump would be making an announcement on these matters in the coming days he said this on Fox News Sunday morning futures where he also said that Tiktok, the Chinese owned short form video APP needs to be taken down via executive action in addition to Tiktok. Mike. POMPEO. Pointed to we chat, which is a Chinese messaging APP saying that both of these are feeding data directly to the. Chinese Communist Party quote for a long time a long time. The United States just said well goodness if we're having fun with it or if a company can make money off of it, we're going to permit that to happen president trump said enough going on the secretary of state added and we are going to fix it and so he will take action in the coming days with respect to a broad array of national security risks that are presented by software that connected to the Chinese Communist Party. Microsoft has emerged as wanting to potentially by all US operations of tiktok accents reports that trump does have a deal on his desk where Microsoft would lead acquisition of the US operations of six talk and Microsoft seems to believe that it's possible that a total separation can happen from tiktok parent company by Dance. It's important for you to understand that presidents normally can't just order a ban on individual companies like this but the fact that Tiktok has a foreign owner allows the Treasury Department to have broad. Authority over it. Now, at this point, it's unclear whether trump is going to allow Microsoft to buy it or if trump is just going to push for an all out ban, we don't know. But what we do know is that this is super weird coming just months before an election six does have one hundred, million US users, and so it is rather strange move it could alienate some I mean granted I don't know if it would make much of a difference, but it just seemed strange. NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Bankin are safely on earth after a historic flight to and from the International Space Station provided by SPACEX Axios says on Saturday afternoon both astronaut splashdown into the Gulf of Mexico after about two forty, eight PM eastern time a space x vessel was able to recover both astronauts from their crew, dragon? Capsule. Hurley in bank in two month mission was the first time that people have been launched into orbit from the United States. The end of the space shuttle. Program in twenty eleven. This new move of partnering for Space Exploration, with private companies can allow NASA to act more of like a buyer instead of a provider of these services now and will free up NASA's budget to focus on things like getting people to the moon and eventually other planets in the future. In fact, NASA and SPACEX already have another trip planned this time for six months with multiple. NASA. Going up to the International Space Station, this will take place around late. September. So be on the lookout. Additional unemployment benefits of six hundred dollars per week expired on Friday July thirty first and reportedly the White House Senate. Republicans and Democrats are all know we're closer to a deal? Apparently, all sides are on board though for another twelve, hundred dollar check like was done with the cares act earlier this year the main point of disagreement is the additional unemployment benefits six hundred dollars extra. A month is what people have been receiving since the cares act was passed Democrats want to continue at that rate while Republicans want to. Bring that down to two hundred additional dollars per week while eventually moving holy to seventy percent of lost wages Republicans additionally wanted to get a one week extension on the six hundred dollars per week of additional benefits passed quickly. But the Democrats are refusing because they think that the Republicans are just GonNa. Use It as just a quick win and move on. But the Democrats are saying that they want a full robust bill. Now, the Democrats have proposed a three trillion dollar deal while the Republicans are looking to pass. A one trillion dollar deal, and as of yesterday junk Schumer the Senate Minority leader said that there were significant divisions remaining but good progress is being made quote. We made good progress. There are lots of things we are still divided on and we're not close to an agreement yet, but we are making good progress and I'm hopeful that we can get to an agreement. Now they're going to resume talks today. Okay. But do not be fooled. The Republicans are trying to place the onus here on Democrats but Democrats came. Up with a bill back in May the bill back in May like I said had a three trillion dollar price tag. It was approved by the House but then has not been voted on in the Senate and Senate Republicans want to have a one trillion dollar bill that does not do nearly enough in my opinion. So but as of right now you know who's GonNa Suffer America, the American people that are unemployed we just had on Thursday. One of the worse GDP records for quarter ever if not the worst. The percentage of GDP lost was close to thirty three percent. I hope we get a deal soon things are super hard to pass in Washington obviously, and I'm glad that the Democrats are sticking their feet in and trying to get this thing passed the Democrats are not perfect and I fear that they're going to cave too much here. But we've got to get something done because there is an eviction crisis looming we need to renew the moratorium on fictions. Now CNBC just posted a study recently that twenty two to fifty nine percent depending on the state that you live in of renters may be facing eviction as a result of the corona virus economic circumstances these numbers are horrifying and I'm sure this isn't the last time you'll be hearing about it. Trump's campaign paused ads over the weekend, which is really weird because they wanted to rebrand their messaging and new ads launching today are going to be depicting Joe Biden as a puppet of the radical left. This comes from two senior campaign officials but the most recent internal polls show that the puppet of the left's attack on Biden is going to resonate with voters and speaking personally in someone who lives in a very heavy trump territory. The this is the talking point that I've heard Oh Biden's not the problem it's. Going to be the VP you have to look out for as if Kamla Harrison. Some sort of crazy radical assuming he chooses someone like her speaking of the VP spot trump's campaign is very interested in that because the quote unquote radical left thing that they're going to be using their ads is a placeholder for whoever Joe Biden ends up picking. By the way, we will learn who Joe Biden is going to pick around on tenth multiple sources have suggested he said now he pushed back his self imposed deadline from. The first week of August to the second week and one source has said that it's going to be August tenth now. So be on the lookout here. No matter who Joe Biden picks. I think that Joe Biden is well-positioned. Of course, we all have to go out and vote that. This is not a matter of that we have to vote even if we live in California or Massachusetts or Oklahoma Even for God's sake, we have to vote for Joe Biden, but it doesn't really matter as much who he picks. Think this go around because trump's campaign is reportedly very upset that Biden doesn't have the unfavorability rating that Hillary Clinton did in two, thousand, sixteen, all of this trump at drama gotta be Biden's campaign to respond Andrew Bates. Director of rapid response said quote the American people know Joe Biden and after seven consecutive months of failed leadership during the worst possible health crisis in generations they know that our nation's capacity to join the rest of the world beating back cove nineteen has been crippled by one overriding burden donald trump. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina said on Sunday that he believes trump is trying to put a cloud over the election and that he does not plan to leave office. If he loses Clyburn told CNN that the American people had better wake up to trump and he compared trump to Mussalini and said Russian President Vladimir Putin is akin to Hitler further representative Clyburn said quote I don't think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn't plan to have fair unfettered elections I believe that he plans to install. Himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold office. Now, all of this is to say everything that Clyburn is saying here means that we have to so overwhelmed the vote that trump cannot cheat. We have to force him out of office because on January twentieth at noon no matter how hard trump tries he will not be the president if we overwhelmed the vote and like Joe. Biden. So that's what we have to do. If you need help getting registered in your state, go to vote Dot

S. entities and number two why was it in a footnote rather than written in big red magic marker in block letters across every page of the thing nobody's gonna miss a page long footnote in regular type okay of not not even busy for the federal judges and that's the other thing look these are federal judges for goodness sake they know how to evaluate wire tap applications they've been doing it in their regular jobs before they get to the FISA court with title three applications and then they've been on the court for a while these are serious serious judges and they have a highly qualified professional staff of lawyers who work only for the court to review all these things and there's a constant dialogue back and forth on this particular application what conversations exactly took place between the FISA court the judges themselves the legal advisors the department justice the FBI I don't remember I wasn't privy to all those communications but my assessment was that the information set forth in that gigantic footnote was consistent with the type of information and the way we would phrase things to basically effectively be the red light on top of the on top of the document like Hey court pay attention to this there are issues here we we think you need to know about these things my view was and I I we have a and I'm well aware of this the department attorneys have a have the highest duty of candor to the FISA court that exists in law is an ex party proceeding and we have the obligation to tell the court every material fact with respect to the application and so I wanted to make sure that was done I thought that this was sufficient to put the court on notice and I don't know what else to say you previously said that you think it's possible that the federal bureau of investigation improperly spied on the trump campaign I assume that's a reference to the fight so worn for Carter page is that what you have in mind or there are other circumstances that you've got a might there one of things I want to look at their people many people seem to assume that the only intelligence collection that occurred was the a single confidential informant and a FISA warrant I'd like to find out whether that is in fact true it strikes me as a fairly and knee make effort if that was the counter intelligence effort designed to stop the threat as it's being represented whose cover page under surveillance at and during his time working for the trump campaign which was it roughly January twenty sixteen to September twenty sixteen I don't know was any other trump campaign official under surveillance during that time period your knowledge world these are the things that I I need to to look at and I have to say that as I said before you know the extent that there was any over reach I believe it was some a few people in the in the upper echelons of of the bureau and and perhaps the department but those people are no longer there why not open this vegetable investigation what's the harm you said intrusive means so what what is your concern about the fact that they did this sure is this from day one remember they say okay we're not going to go to talk to the campaign we're going to put people in there while I was a mop and have these conversations with people involved in the campaign because that way we'll get to truth from the very first day of this investigation which was July thirty first two thousand sixteen all the way to which end in September two thousand seventeen there was not one incriminatory bit of evidence to come in it was for all exculpatory the people that they were tapings denied any involvement with Russia did not very specific facts that the FBI was was relying on so what happens the FBI ignores it presses ahead with holes that information from the court with holes critical exculpatory information from the court well it gets a quick tronic surveillance warrants it also with holes from the court evidence that the dossier that they ultimately relied on to get the fires of war it was a complete sham I mean those words that we just heard from the Attorney General are devastating now remember the inspector general that would be Michael Horowitz is he had the purview only of the DOJ and the FBI and any could not go outside of or beyond that but now the recognition yeah it really all happened another words yeah what Hannity was same for three years and a few other people and they have a new NASA and the freedom caucus guys on covered and our ensemble team we were all dead on accurate everything from the espionage act bleach bit obstruction of justice the dirty Russian dot CA used as the as the bulk of information in the FISA warrants unverifiable the warnings about it I'm being unverifiable premeditated fraud on a FISA court spying on an individual Carter page the nine him is civil liberties as constitutional protections back during his his his connection to the trump campaign to spy on a presidential candidate later transition team and then a presidency and that's only one of what is multiple ways that spying occurred and more of which were going to get the details of in the months ahead when we get the dorm investigation complete and we get the bar report and this time I would expect that there's going to be indictments if there's any equal application of our laws and equal justice under the law that that's got to happen I know it take a little break here from all of our impeachment coverage but this this matters this matters a lot and former trump campaign adviser Carter page filed a lawsuit in federal court against the DNC and the law firm Perkins co in their partners that are tied to funding this unverifiable dossier that served as the basis for all of this surveillance warrants against him and then also Donald Trump candidate transition team and president he filed the court in US District Court in the Northern District of Illinois their Eastern Division he did it early yesterday morning described by his attorneys as the first of multiple actions in the wake of historic foreign intelligence surveillance act abuse and the department of justice has admitted that this is all true now now it's just a matter of how deep we go into this the first step to ensure that this the the the weaponization if you will of of the powerful tools of intelligence we entrust ninety nine percent of the people I've ice say it all the time are good people we need great intelligence for the safety and security of this country if we have to remove Faiza it ends up hurting the country creating vulnerabilities we otherwise we would not need to have but if the top brass though the one percent weaponize this as they clearly have then it puts all of our civil liberties in jeopardy our constitutional rights in jeopardy now with the attorneys for Carter page saying this is the first salvo we're going to follow the evidence wherever it leads the matter how high the rule of law will prevail now this up first defamation suit against the parties in October twenty eighteen in the federal court of Oklahoma but the suit was dismissed after the judge ruled that the court lacked jurisdiction okay well now they have jurisdiction anyway this is a huge development this will turn into something that will shock the conscience and soul of the country I've been saying that too because now we have we have complete vindication everything we reported was right unfortunately of Carter page had to live through this and he joins us now for an update well first of all good for you I've suggested in past interviews you do this I think it's not only fair for you personally but I do believe that it's an important first step if we're ever going to stop this from ever happening again Sean well first of all I I as you say this is what you've been an encouraging me to do for a long time and I I think more than just encouraging I I wanna I'm gonna start by saying when I when I told my family that that I'm gonna be on with you on the on the air they were really looking for dad to hearing the hearing you as they as they always deal but they they they asked me to take that take the opportunity to say that you know current for almost three years you you Sean Hannity have been the cage quote the page family beacon of hope and you know we had talked previously about a you know you're getting out Pulitzer Prize or something yeah any time anyone the only ones again Pulitzer prizes are people that report false news like that they are times Washington post you know you know what those Carter honestly at the I I you're very nice to say all that we had an ensemble team if I ever want to go anywhere I would say it is my radio and television staff the people behind the scenes it is the ensemble cast we put that everyone of us digging behind the scenes it is though though those congressmen arm I will tell you though the only if I take any satisfaction in the vindication of the mob has been dead wrong every single time as I predicted and and if I take any satisfaction is that I did my job properly for my audience and I yeah I'm like a dog on a bone I will admit it when I do again I did again and I knew I was right and our our sources were numerous and impeccable an unimpeachable and I will tell you it is I take satisfaction knowing that my audience was told the truth the other audiences of all the other fake news groups was not told the truth well you're absolutely right and it goes so far beyond use yeah you are absolutely a stalwart but on top of that you know the other point that my family made is they should they should actually give you a Nobel Peace Prize for all you've done for our country and and actually I really think that also with a similar to your time this year because of the you know Nobel Prize that has a a checkered past some people that out let's see if they might not have deserved it so much speaking of Illinois yeah you wonder what's interesting and just as a side note here you realize in this Ukrainian impeachment sham which we know now is going to end we know how it ends do you know that the evening news cast according to news busters was a hundred percent negative on the trump the fence which was amazing and ninety five percent positive for the congenital liar who's compromised that's how sick the mob in the media is the ones that were pushing the Russia hopes and ignoring your story or ignoring even today I'm very I'm I I couldn't be happier today for general Flynn but is now the department of justice back down from seeking jail time on him thank god or god wow awesome I I just did I've been I've been so deep in this cycle this important case that I I I haven't had a chance to catch up on that essential case so it's that is really terrific yes I look forward to hearing you gonna take this our audience you know you know the sad part for you is lawsuits take for ever this is now going to be a decade of your life when it's all said and done yeah well since John this is really you know it's it's a rebuilding process for and our entire country you say that but you know it's it's as you just said in terms of Ukraine hoax after the Russian hoax which is all you know this current civil action I stems from the eighty eight it is going to be a rebuilding process what what president trump and his administration and all Americans have gone through over the last several years is she has just been tragic and it's it's Valerie building period as we start to move beyond this and try to get some justice so inside.
