Report Shows Massive Corruption: Las Vegas Sent Out 223,000 Ballots to Wrong Address in June Primary But Democrats Pass Mail-in Voting Anyway

Last weekend Democrat Governor Sisolak and Nevada Democrats called a special session with no public present and inside of 24 hours they rammed through mail-in voting and ballot harvesting.
Democrats did this during the special legislative session.
The new Democrat law allows people not related to or friends with elderly voters to fill out their ballots and turn them in to be counted! 
This was a shocking development considering 223,000 Las Vegas ballots went to the wrong address in the June primary!
That was 17 percent of the vote! 
 

Trump Calls Biden’s ‘Junkie’ Remark To Black Journalist A ‘Great Insult To The Black Community’

President Trump on Thursday said Joe Biden implying that a black journalist is a “junkie” was a “great insult to the black community.”
Biden chastised CBS correspondent Errol Barnett this week after he asked if the former vice president had taken a cognitive test. 
In a bizarre answer, Biden said:
“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man,” Biden said. “That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program if you had taken a test were you taking cocaine or not. What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” 
It’s not the first time Biden lost his cool when asked about his mental acuity. Last month, he pushed back on the notion that he is losing his faculties, telling reporters he is “constantly tested” for evidence of cognitive decline. 
“Some have speculated that you are subject to some degree of cognitive decline,” Fox News’ Doug McKelway said. “I’m 65, I don’t have word recollection that I used to have, I forgot my train of thought from time to time. You got 12 years on me, sir. Have you been tested for some degree of cognitive decline?”
“I’ve been tested and I’m constantly tested,” Biden said. “Look, all you got to do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against.”
A recent Zogby International poll of 1,007 “likely voters” found that 55% said they think the former vice president “is in the early stages of dementia.”

“Overall, subgroups who normally approve of Trump’s job as president were the most likely to believe Biden could be suffering from dementia,” the poll found. “Thus, majorities of Republicans (77% more likely/23% less likely) and Independents (56% more likely/44% less likely) thought Joe Biden had early-onset dementia; while nearly a third of Democrats (32% more likely/68% less likely) thought this was the case.”

Pelosi, Schumer Send Urgent Letter to Postmaster General Demanding Reversal of Operational Changes to USPS Ahead of Election

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Thursday sent an urgent letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy demanding he reverse the recent operational changes to the USPS that “threaten the timely delivery of mail” ahead of the 2020 election.
The Democrat-media complex exploded last week and accused President Trump of “destroying” the US Postal Service after the President’s newly appointed postmaster general made structural changes. 
New changes made by Louis DeJoy have reportedly ‘slowed down’ the mail deliveries, prompting the left to accuse President Trump of corrupting the US Postal Service in order to deter people from using mail-in ballots for the November election.
The Democrats, with help from their stenographers in the media are keeping the Covid-19 panic alive until Election Day in order to change how Americans vote — they are pushing for mail-in voting because it doesn’t require voter ID and there is no chain of custody. 
Pelosi and Schumer are now demanding Louis DeJoy reverse his structural changes so the ailing US Postal Service can handle an onslaught of ballots.
“We believe these changes, made during the middle of a once-in-a-century pandemic, now threaten the timely delivery of mail—including medicines for seniors, paychecks for workers, and absentee ballots for voters—that is essential to millions of Americans,” Pelosi and Schumer wrote. 
“While it is true that the Postal Service has and continues to face financial challenges, enacting these policies as cost-cutting or efficiency measures as the COVID-19 public health emergency continues is counterproductive and unacceptable.”
“During our meeting, you committed to being more forthcoming and transparent with Congress and the American people regarding these changes, including providing documentation of the operational changes you have made and will be making since beginning your term and the Postal Service’s plan to successfully deliver election mail during the 2020 elections.”

Louis DeJoy will testify to the House Oversight Committee about the changes he implemented on September 17.

Biden’s “Condescending White Liberal Racism” Blasted by the Trump Campaign

The Trump campaign released a blistering statement Thursday on Joe Biden’s comment that unlike Hispanics, Black people think alike. Biden was accused in the statement by Trump campaign senior advisor Katrina Pierson of having a “plantation owner mentality” and “condescending white liberal racism.”
Biden made the comment during a Yahoo News interview for the virtual convention of National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists this week. During the same interview, Biden also asked CBS reporter Errol Barnett, who is Black, if he is on cocaine or a junkie. in response to Barnett asking Biden about taking a cognitive test.
 
“What you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”
“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?! Come on, man! That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program if you had taken a test, were you taking cocaine or not. What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” 
“The condescending white liberal racism that oozes out of Joe Biden is disgusting. We already know that he thinks ‘you ain’t Black’ if you’re not voting for him. And we know that when a Black journalist asks him a tough question, he brings up cocaine use and says ‘are you a junkie?’ Now he arrogantly tells a group of Black reporters that ‘you all know’ that Black people think alike. There’s a reason Joe Biden can’t count on the support of Black voters and it’s because of his plantation owner mentality. President Trump has a true record of helping Black Americans, with unprecedented economic opportunity, record funding for HBCUs, criminal justice reform, and support for school choice. Joe Biden would rather we all just shut up, get in line, and know our place.”

Facebook removes troll farm posing as African-American support for Donald Trump

Facebook removed hundreds of accounts on Thursday from a foreign troll farm posing as African-Americans in support of Donald Trump and QAnon supporters. It also removed hundreds of fake accounts linked to conservative media outlet The Epoch Times that pushed pro-Trump conspiracy theories about coronavirus and protests in the U.S.
Facebook took down the accounts as part of its enforcement against coordinated inauthentic behavior, which is the use of fake accounts to inflate the reach of content or products on social media.
The foreign pro-Trump troll farm was based in Romania and pushed content on Instagram under names like “BlackPeopleVoteForTrump” and on Facebook under “We Love Our President.”
Troll farms — groups of people that work together to manipulate internet discourse with fake accounts — are often outsourced and purchased by foreign governments or businesses to push specific political talking points. Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook's head of security policy, said the troll farm’s motivations were unclear, but they didn’t see “clear evidence of financial motivation” or “clear links to known commercial actors in this space.”
Facebook stressed that the takedowns were based on “behavior, not content,” like breaking rules against creating fake accounts to boost engagement on some pieces of content.
Researchers at the Atlantic Council found that many of the troll farm's posts came from a persona called "David Adrian," which used a stolen profile photo and claimed to be living in both Romania and Montana. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have since removed multiple accounts for the David Adrian persona.
A separate troll operation, tied to pro-Trump media organization Epoch Media Group, featured 303 Facebook accounts, 181 pages, 44 Facebook groups and 31 Instagram accounts, which were followed by more than 2 million people across both services. Epoch Media Group is the parent company of the newspaper The Epoch Times. The accounts were tied to a digital media outlet called TruthMedia, which Facebook says it has banned from its services.
The accounts posted about “ongoing U.S. protests and conspiracy theories about who is behind them,” Gleicher said. Some accounts pushed health misinformation about COVID-19, which led to their ban from their services before this month’s takedown.
Stephen Gregory, publisher of The Epoch Times' english-language editions, denied that the company was associated with TruthMedia.
"The Epoch Times and Epoch Media Group are not in any way linked or related with 'Truth Media,' nor do we have any involvement in any operation of 'Truth Media,'" he said in an email.
The same network appears to have created a still-active White House petition to “start calling the novel coronavirus the CCP virus,” according to an investigation from Graphika, which tracks disinformation on social media.
Facebook has twice taken action against Epoch Times-related content, most recently for its use of AI-generated, deepfake-style profile pictures on fake accounts that pushed Epoch Times stories and talking points. Gleicher said that the news Epoch Media Group-related fake accounts primarily used stock photos and not AI-generated photos for profile pictures.
Facebook banned The Epoch Times from advertising on its platform last year after it purchased ads under account names like “Honest Paper” and “Pure Honest Journalism” to get around the social network’s ad review systems. At the time, The Epoch Times was the largest buyer of pro-Trump ads on Facebook outside of the Trump campaign.
An example of the new Epoch Media-related takedown provided by Facebook showed an account called “Truth14” pushing a meme about a baseball player who didn’t kneel during the national anthem, part of the accounts’ strategy to push pro-Trump culture war messaging.“This guy is going to need a lot of support because the mob is coming for him and his family,” the post reads. “‘MLB’ is ‘BLM’ spelled backwards.”

Lachlan Murdoch fires back at brother James as he praises Fox staff for their news coverage in memo just days after his younger sibling quit board of News Corp 'over certain editorial content'

Lachlan Murdoch appears to have fired back at younger brother James in a memo to Fox staff Thursday in which he praised the network's news coverage.  
James, 47, quit the board of News Corp at the end of last month blaming 'disagreements over certain editorial content published by the company's news outlets'.
On Thursday Lachlan, 48, who is the CEO of Fox Corporation and Rupert's 'golden child', told staff: 'More than ever this year, our audiences turned to us for the best in national and local news. 
'FOX News, which ended fiscal year 2020 with record-breaking viewership, was also the leading primetime network in all of television among total viewers in June, marking the first cable network to ever lead all broadcast networks in ratings for an entire month.' 
The brothers have had a tumultuous relationship over the years which had become more frayed than ever of recent after Lachlan was promoted over his younger brother by their father, despite James' loyalty to the family company. 
News Corp is one of the two major media conglomerates owned by the Murdochs, the other being Fox Corporation, which was established after The Walt Disney Company acquired the majority of 21st Century Fox last year.
The two sister companies were formed following the split of the original News Corporation, founded in 1980, in 2013.

James did not go into detail about his differences with the company in his resignation, but has been publicly critical of its news platforms in the past. 
The younger brother is known as the more liberal Murdoch brother, while his older sibling Lachlan's views seem to be more aligned with those of his conservative father.
James' decision means the board will now consist of ten members, headed by Rupert, 89, and oldest son Lachlan. 
In the company wide memo Thursday Lachlan praised the 'unmistakable power of live sports combined with top entertainment programs made FOX'. 
He added: 'Our local FOX Television Stations increased their news productions and created special town halls to ensure viewers have the information most relevant to their cities and towns.'

In contrast, James has spoken out against his father's company on a number of occasions, with him and his wife Kathryn slamming the family business for promoting climate change 'denials' during the Australian bushfire crisis in January.
The pair released a statement saying they were 'disappointed' by the coverage of the fires by Fox News and other News Corp outlets. 
'Kathryn and James's views on climate are well established and their frustration with some of the News Corp and Fox coverage of the topic is also well known.
'They are particularly disappointed with the ongoing denial among the news outlets in Australia given obvious evidence to the contrary,' their statement read.
The 'denials' were in reference to allegations arsonists and not climate change were to blame for the destructive wildfires.

His comments were perceived as 'unprecedented' and sparked speculation of a feud within the family since he rarely speaks publicly about his role in the business.  
James also opened up about his professional break from the family business in a revealing interview with the New Yorker last year. 
He found himself out of work when Fox merged with Disney early last year, but also $2billion richer thanks to his shares in the company.
This seems to have caused some friction between father and son and when asked if he had recently spoken to his former boss, James said:  'There are periods of time when we do not.' 
In 2019 James noted things were great post-Fox, saying: 'I just feel very lucky to have the opportunity at this point to make a clean break, and literally have an empty slate.  
He was even last year reportedly looking to set up a $1billion new project including a liberal news outlet, in stark contrast to his father's Fox News.
In March it was further suggested he pumped money into start-ups looking to combat fake news.
His firm Lupa Systems was said to have teamed up with Betaworks to create a 'more sustainable news ecosystem'. 
Rupert designed his companies to benefit his family, making certain that he and his children always had control, meaning that his children and generations to follow would be taken care of financially.

But the media tycoon has not left his children with a plan for the future of his media empire, refusing to officially name an heir despite making no secret of his preferred child. 
It is not his oldest child Prudence or the next in line Elisabeth, who has found incredible success outside the family business in emerging media markets.
It is not James, the son who has stood by his side for decades and weathered the fallout from the 2011 hacking scandal at News of the World and the 2016 sexual assault scandal at Fox News.
It is Lachlan, Murdoch's older son, who is the 'golden child' according to multiple sources.
And the empire looks to be his for the taking - but it is not clear if he is interested in the job.
The family company and its future were the focus of a New York Times piece last year that provided an in depth look at the mogul's two sons while completely ignoring the lives and accomplishments of his four daughters.
By some accounts, Murdoch's heirs are now battling behind the scenes for control of the empire, with the two top contenders appearing to be his sons James and Lachlan.
Others claim however most of the children have soured on the notion of taking over from their father.
The media mogul is the father of six children, who range in age from 61 to 16. The oldest is Prudence, who is Murdoch's only child with his first wife, Australian model Patricia Booker.
She has held various positions in her father's companies but now lives in Australia where she is largely focused on raising her three children.
Prue, as she is called by her family, has made it clear she is not interested in taking the reins and did not even attend college after graduating from Dalton in New York.
That does not mean she would oppose seeing her second husband, Alasdair MacLeod, move up the ranks at News Corp - despite her protests about him working with her father, or her offspring - who are Murdoch's three oldest grandchildren - landing nice roles at the company.
But as Vanity Fair reported back in 2008, Prue is in many ways the one link the family has to reality.
'She gets away with saying what the others won't, even things that the others won't think, and she takes the various family members much less seriously than they do themselves,' reported the magazine.
'This involves, not least of all, seeing her three oldest half-siblings - Elisabeth, Lachlan, and James - as, each in his or her way, master-race prototypes.'
It is those three who have long seem poised to battle it out for their father's media empire - Elisabeth, 50, Lachlan, 47, and James, 46.
All three work in media, with Elisabeth currently experiencing success with Vertical Networks, a startup that provides app-based series that are produced to be viewed in cellular devices.
The relationship between Lachlan and his father has run hot and cold over the years, but that all changed back in 2014 when Murdoch's older son returned to New York to work for News Corp. Now, he is the Chairman and CEO of the Fox Corporation.
James, the youngest of the three, was the most loyal, staying by his father's side and joining News Corp shortly after he dropped out of Harvard.
That devotion was tested however when Murdoch elected to promote Lachlan over James after he return to work in the US following an extended stint in Australia.
The brothers already strained relationship only got worse when Lachlan informed James of this decision over lunch.
James even briefly quit the company, but then ultimately decided to return before then exiting for good. 
Murdoch's youngest children are Grace, 18, and Chloe, 16, the New York-based daughters born to Murdoch's third wife Wendi Deng.
Chloe is currently attending an Ivy League college while her sister attends private school in Manhattan.
The ambitions of the two teenagers are unknown, but their fiercely intelligent mother has no doubt seen to it that the two get not one bit less than their older half-siblings.
James, meanwhile, is a longtime environmental advocate. His wife Kathryn works at the Clinton Climate Initiative and the pair are known contributors to the Clinton Foundation.
The couple last month endorsed presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden by donating $615,000 each to his campaign after previously donating to former candidate Pete Buttigieg.
Rupert and Lachlan said in a statement: 'We're grateful to James for his many years of service to the company. We wish him the very best in his future endeavors.' 
James previously served as the CEO of 21st Century Fox but stepped down following the sale. Since then, he has worked at the helm of the investment fund Lupa Systems.
News Corp also publishes major papers in Australia and the UK and owns the HarperCollins book publisher.     

Former upstate New York mayor, 67, is killed and two others are injured after guacamole-making machine explodes

A former upstate New York mayor has been killed and two others injured after a high-pressure food processor being tested for manufacturing guacamole exploded.
Dr Joseph Kapp, 67, local businessman and former mayor of Rensselaer, New York, died at hospital after the explosion on Wednesday morning at Innovative Test Solutions, an engineering firm and test laboratory.
Schenectady Fire Department Assistant Chief Don Mareno told the Times-Union of Albany that the machine was a 'high-pressure vessel.' 
Two other people who were present during the testing were sent to Ellis Hospital with less serious injuries, Mareno said, according to News10. The surviving victims have not been named. 
Scott Briody, Innovative’s CEO and vice president, told the newspaper that Kapp was a client of the firm.
Kapp was the vice chairman of the Board of Trustees for Hudson Valley Community College in Troy and a former mayor of Rensselaer during the 1990s. He was also involved in research and invention.  The explosion that killed Kapp and injured two others took place at Innovative Test Solutions, an engineering firm and test laboratory in Schenectady, New York

Kapp and the other victims were at Innovative Test Solutions on Kings Road in Schenectady at around 7am when the guacamole-making machine exploded. 
The blast damaged the facility, but no fire or chemical spill were reported, according to Spectrum News. 
The local codes department and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration were reportedly both notified about the incident.
It is unclear at this time why the machinery experienced what has been described as a 'catastrophic failure during trial operational tests.' 
Kapp, the vice chairman of the Board of Trustees for Hudson Valley Community College, is survived by his wife, Jolanta, and their children

'As a true friend, a remarkable leader, and the longest serving trustee on our board, Joe Kapp will be greatly missed by our college community,' Dr Roger Ramsammy, President of Hudson Valley Community College, said in a statement. 
'Once a student at Hudson Valley, Joe gave back to the college immensely and served admirably as a trustee for two decades. With heavy hearts, we share our deepest sympathies with Joe’s wife, Yolanta, and the entire Kapp family.' 
Kapp is survived by his wife and children, one of whom, a son, is serving in the US Navy.
