How to Track Your Absentee Ballot by State

Voting in 2020 looks very different across the country. People will be voting by absentee ballot in record numbers and with the postal system facing major delays, the question of whether your vote counts can be an all too literal one. Fortunately, most states and the D.C. have set up systems for voters to check whether or not their ballot was received.

The first step, of course, is registered to vote and requesting or filling out that ballot. Once that's done, the states below let you enter your name and date of birth to find out the status of your ballot.

Monkeys Or Children? Russia Chooses Neither, Dooming Germany

Russia is done with the European Union. At last week’s Valdai Discussion Forum Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made this quite clear with this statement.

Those people in the West who are responsible for foreign policy and do not understand the necessity of mutually respectable conversation–well, we must simply stop for a while communicate with them. Especially since Ursula von der Leyen states that geopolitical partnership with current Russia’s leadership is impossible. If this is the way they want it, so be it. (H/T Andrei Martyanov)

Lavrov’s statements echo a number of statements made in recent months by Russian leadership that there is no opportunity for diplomacy possible with the United States.

We can now add the European Union to that list. Pepe Escobar’s latest piece goes over Lavrov’s comments about the European Union and they are devastating, as devastating as when he and Putin described the U.S. as “Not Agreement Capable” a few years ago.

The New York Post’s report that the FBI has laptops belonging to Hunter Biden that contain emails showing Hunter and Joe Biden’s use of the Vice Presidency for business deals that amount to influence peddling and money laundering was banned from Twitter, Facebook, and Google. The New York Times, Washington Post and other of the press prostitutes tried to discredit the story with the fake news that it was Russian disinformation to help Trump win the election. National Public Radio refused to mention the story other than to brand it a story that is not really a story, simply a waste of “listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions.” [1] NPR, of course, was all into distractions that wasted readers’ and listeners’ time on Russiagate and Impeachgate and wasted President Trump’s entire term.

4 Insane Examples of Overzealous Internet Censorship

The Internet is filled with cultural riches, ranging from translations of ancient Mesopotamian texts to this inexplicable death metal video tribute to Arnold Ziffel, aka the pig from the 1965 sitcom Green Acres.

But that's not all -- the Internet is also home to a borderline unfathomable amount of pornography. And as a result, there are a slew of filters, software, and apps designed to make sure this roiling ocean of filth doesn't completely spill over into the workday, murder worker productivity, and tank the global economy. And given the all-consuming river of XXX fun this blocking technology must stanch, sometimes it backfires hilariously.

President Trump has not asked Attorney General William Barr to open an investigation into the Biden family, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Friday, despite his comments earlier in the week urging the attorney general to look into the matter.

"No he has not. The president wants these things to be looked into, and the media is really the avenue that should be doing that at this point," McEnany told reporters.

"It's up to the attorney general as to how he pursues this, and the FBI, but we just want justice and we want the American people to have a full picture of what's at stake," she added.

A Historical Reckoning: Oxford Study Challenges Israel’s Claims Concerning Palestinian Refugees

There needs to be a fundamental change in the way Palestinian refugees are seen, no longer as victims but as people with rights who are entitled to shape their own destiny. This assertion is made in a new study whose importance cannot be overstated.

According to international law, Palestinian refugees have a right to return to their homes and land and receive restitution and compensation for their suffering and personal and communal losses. Furthermore, the State of Israel, which is responsible for Palestine’s ethnic cleansing, must pay for the repatriation, the rehabilitation, and the rebuilding that the return will necessitate. A thorough understanding of why millions of Palestinians live as refugees and what international law says about their situation is critical, and a recently published study sheds unprecedented light on the Palestinian refugee issue.

Israel Will Not Oppose US Sale of F-35s to the UAE

On Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would not oppose the US sale of “certain weapon systems” to the UAE after securing a guarantee from Washington that Israel will get new weapons in exchange. Although he did not mention the stealth fighter jets by name, Netanyahu’s statement was an apparent reference to the potential US sale of F-35s to the UAE.

Netanyahu made the announcement in a joint statement with Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz, who signed a pact with US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper in Washington on Thursday. The agreement signed with Esper reaffirmed the US’s commitment to upholding Israel’s military superiority over its neighbors, known as the Qualitative Military Edge (QME).

The smoking disaster that is our Intelligence Community (IC) was on full display Wednesday.

The Iranians have already begun sending spoof emails to potential voters seeking to sow dissension. The Russians may soon follow suit. Americans need to on guard.

Really? That is a national crisis? We should be terrified of the Iranians and the Russians, but nobody has any concerns about the Chinese interference in our electoral process?

Fears mount as South Korea probes cause behind 36 people's deaths after flu vaccination

Public concern over the safety of flu shots has grown in South Korea as the authorities reported 36 cases of deaths after vaccination as at 1pm on Friday (Oct 23), putting strain on their efforts to curb a potential "twindemic" of winter flu and the coronavirus.

The country is still grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic, reporting 155 Covid-19 cases on Friday - the highest since Sept 11 and the second day in a row that the number hit triple figures. This brings the total to 25,698.

Health authorities now also have to tackle a deepening fear of the state-administered free flu vaccine programme after two batches of vaccine were found faulty since last month.

Code Name ‘Project Hanson’: Insider Documents Reveal How Hunter Biden Associates Helped Chinese Military Contractor Acquire Michigan Dual-Use Manufacturer

In September 2015, the Obama-Biden administration approved the sale of a strategically sensitive Michigan manufacturer, Henniges Automotive, to a firm connected to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and a Chinese military contractor that was on an American watch list because of its close ties to the People’s Liberation Army. Hunter Biden’s equity fund, backed by the Communist Chinese government, and the Chinese contractor, Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC), needed special approval for the deal from the Committee of Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CIFIUS) because Henniges produced technology with potential military use.

The document outlined five core principles Trump has said he applies to support the Indian Country, as well as 10 bullet-point guarantees for the future.

America’s Last Chance?

On election day, you will have to make a choice between two political parties and two presidential candidates. Several days later you will in all probability have to make another choice. In the case of a closely contested election, whose side will you take?

No matter who wins, the losing side will very likely charge that the election was stolen. And if, the losing side is the Republicans, that claim could very well be true.

If Republicans produce solid evidence that the election was, in fact, stolen, what then? Should they, nevertheless, graciously step aside in favor of the illegitimate “winners” for the sake of peace, and in the hope that the American system will eventually right itself. After all, our constitutional system of checks and balances was designed to prevent one faction in government from acquiring excessive power.

The Existential Crisis for Colleges: $1.64 Trillion in Student Debt and a Pandemic.

The fall season for those with teenagers exploring college options can be one filled with anxiety and uncertainty in more stable times. This is anything but a stable time. We have college tuition spiraling out of control for well over two decades while a pandemic forced students to learn online away from carefully manicured campuses. How do you decide on which college to attend if you are unable to visit the campus, explore the classes, or experience what has been so painstakingly packaged to embody the college going years? That is the question millions of families are grappling with in the middle of all the other questions the novel coronavirus has tossed at us. Colleges are having to face an existential challenge in what they truly believe in – do they want to educate our future or serve only as a finishing school for the affluent in our society?

Barnier Claims UK and EU Have ‘Huge Common Responsibility’ to Stop Full Brexit

Brussels’ chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has claimed that it is the UK’s and the EU’s “common responsibility” to agree on a deal and stop a clean-break, no-deal Brexit.

Just last week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson had declared that negotiations with the EU had failed over the bloc’s intransigence on issues like anti-competition rules and fishing, and that the UK should prepare for a no deal.

However, Mr Johnson did not officially withdraw from trade talks, instead his proxies stating in the following days that negotiations could restart if Europe were willing to compromise. EU insiders interpreted the prime minister’s threat of no deal as mere bluster, with one saying that “if the UK would really not care about having a new deal, it would have left the table long ago”.

Talks recommenced in London on Thursday, with Mr Barnier telling Reuters: “I think it’s very important to be back at the table.”

FLASHBACK - She’s Not Speaking For You – How Much Do The Pelosi’s Have Invested In China?

President Trump announced Tuesday that he was immediately suspending funding to the World Health Organization (WHO). The State Department was otherwise poised to hand over to the WHO $893 million over the next two years. The President’s move came in response to the actions of the WHO and particularly its Director, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, in defending China’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Estimates are that 95% of the deaths worldwide from the ongoing pandemic could have been avoided had Chinese authorities not lied about the scope of the outbreak and had instead warned the world of the scope of the problem on their soil.

In making the announcement that funding would be withheld the President also noted that an investigation was being launched into the actions of the WHO stating that the WHO had put “political correctness over lifesaving measures” and that the WHO was “China-centric.”

Vatican Silent After Pope Appears To Endorse Same-Sex Unions

Pope Francis has once again shaken up the Vatican with his progressive politics, but this time, instead of weighing in on economic matters with little consequence to the Vatican (like the morality of capitalism, which the Pope has frequently attacked in his sermons), it seems he has touched a nerve by appearing to endorse same-sex marriage, a position the Church has vehemently opposed.

Bloomberg reports that the Vatican's massive media apparatus has gone silent, and that all of the Pope's spokespeople aren't returning reporters calls while struggling to formulate a statement of their own. It appears they were as taken aback by the Pope's comment as millions of practicing Catholics.

The Destruction Of The Euro

If ever there was a political construct the unstated objective of which is to enslave its population, it is the European Union. Its opportunity stems from national governments which, with the exception of Germany and a few other northern states, had driven or were on the way to driving their failed states into the ground. The EU’s objectives were to support the policies of failure by corralling the accumulated wealth of the more successful nations to fund the failures in a socialistic doubling-down, and to accelerate the policies of failure to ensure that all power resides in the hands of statist looters in Brussels.

A report in The Washington Post on Thursday details that this secret assistance focuses on the Pentagon providing air power to the Taliban as the group wars against against ISIS in Afghanistan’s northeastern Kunar Province.

How 'Expert' Worship Is Ruining Science

What is science? Has it changed from past to present? Is it still working? The coronavirus pandemic has put a spotlight on the question of science as a whole and biology and drug research in particular.

Now, the popular narrative is that if only we listened to the scientists, we would have prevented this, presumably contrasting scientists against “politicians” and perhaps some un-specified “non-expert” others. The pandemic is happening against a completely unprecedented backdrop of censorship of what seems to me like normal-people discussion about the effects of different drugs and therapies.

The CEO of YouTube has specifically said that the platform would block people suggesting vitamin C has beneficial effects on helping one recover from coronavirus. This is, of course, done “in the name of” science, because everything ought to be done in the name of science in the West.

Most of world’s chocolate comes from labor of 1.5 MILLION children, some as young as FIVE – study

A new study from the University of Chicago has revealed a rise in child labor in global cocoa production despite pledges by international companies to stop using cocoa harvested by children.

According to the study, commissioned by the US Department of Labor, more than two-fifths (43 percent) of all children aged between five and 17 in cocoa-growing regions of Ghana and Ivory Coast (the world’s largest cocoa producers) are engaged in hazardous work.

In total, an estimated 1.5 million children work in cocoa production around the world, half of whom are found in these two west African nations alone. The report said the hazardous work includes the use of sharp tools, working at night, and exposure to agrochemical products, among other harmful activities.

A Russia-China military alliance would be a bulwark against America’s global imperialism. Is it time for Washington to panic?

Vladimir Putin says it’s ‘quite possible to imagine’ a full-blown defense pact between Moscow and Beijing in the near future. Such a deal would transform the geopolitical balance – and be a big headache for the US and NATO.

Just over 70 years ago, Stalin and Mao haggled in Moscow to create the short-lived Sino-Soviet treaty. With China’s Communist Revolution still fresh, Beijing turned to the Soviet Union for economic and military support in securing its new state. Ideologically on the same page, the two powers had a common enemy: the United States and its allies.

By securing a friendship with China, Stalin ultimately hoped to tilt the balance of the Cold War away from Europe and into Asia, giving him a strategic advantage over NATO.

China may be ramping up de-dollarization by dumping US Treasuries, experts say

Beijing may be speeding up the diversification of its foreign exchange reserves away from US dollar assets in response to Washington’s potential sanctions, the South China Morning Post reported, citing analysts.

Data from the US Department of Treasury shows China cut its holdings of US government debt for three consecutive months to $1.07 trillion in late August, the lowest level since March 2017.

The State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE), China’s foreign exchange regulator, said in its most recent annual report that US dollar assets accounted for 58 percent of the nation’s reserves in 2015, unchanged from a year earlier. This means US dollar assets account for about $1.8 trillion of China’s total reserves of around $3.14 trillion.

Iran’s Armed Forces, he added, remind the two conflicting countries to be watchful of the mischief exercised by foreigners and peacefully settle issues through dialog.

The Iranian official cautioned the adversaries against endangering Iran’s territorial boundaries and the security of its citizens.

Pentagon warns Turkey of 'serious consequences' over missile system test

The United States military has warned Turkey of “serious consequences” after Ankara confirmed that it has tested a Russian-made missile defense system.

"The US Department of Defense condemns in the strongest possible terms Turkey's October 16 test of the S-400 air defense system," Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement on Friday.

"We object to Turkey's testing of this system, which risks serious consequences for our security relationship," Hoffman said. "We have been clear and unwavering in our position: an operational S-400 system is not consistent with Turkey's commitments as a US and NATO Ally."

This came after the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan confirmed that his country tested the missile system last week.

MSM BEAT THE BIDENS to declare laptop leak ‘Russian disinformation’ – when did the media shilling get this obvious?

It’s not the media’s job to cover for Joe Biden. Yet the New York Times and its ilk have fallen over themselves to call the damaging leaks “Russian disinformation,” while also awkwardly publishing the FBI’s denial of the claim.

As President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden geared up to debate on Thursday night, the cable TV commentariat wondered how Trump would bring up the “laptop from hell.” Recovered from a Delaware repair shop last year and handed to Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, the laptop – which allegedly belonged to Joe’s son, Hunter – contained a tranche of emails that implicated the Biden family in numerous foreign graft schemes, all while Joe was in the White House.

Before the debate kicked off, the New York Times quoted the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) as saying: “No concrete evidence has emerged that the laptop contains Russian disinformation,” and the FBI as seconding this claim.

US seeking to find deported parents of 500 kids

According to a document presented by the Department of Justice and the American Civil Liberties Union, hundreds of parents have been deported without their children since 2017. Now a court filing in the case has said some parents deported without their children could not yet be located.

In 2017, the Trump administration implemented a controversial zero tolerance policy by which undocumented immigrants were held in prisons. As the law prohibits minors to stay for more than 20 days in detention, the government separated more than 2,500 children from their families and placed them in the custody of the government agencies.

A federal court in 2018 ordered the reunification of families with their children. Reports say the number of children separated from their parents could be much higher.

Palestinians sue Britain for 1917 Balfour Declaration that led to creation of Israel

Palestinian lawyers have lodged a complaint to sue the British government for the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which set out London’s aim to establish a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine.

On Thursday, the lawyers took the measure in the occupied northern West Bank city of Nablus, highlighting that “the suffering of the Palestinians” emanated from the UK document.

“The Balfour Declaration is unacceptable. It was not just a declaration, but a birth certificate for a regime with letters of shame and injustice. It was a replacement tactic drawn by Britain in partnership with Zionists, ignoring the rights of more than 93% of Palestinian people, and granting the Jews, who at the time composed only 7% of the population, full rights,” Munib al-Masri, head of the Federation of Independent and Democratic Trade Unions, told a news conference in Ramallah.

Democrats mounted time-consuming procedural hurdles on Friday, but the party has no realistic chance of stopping Barrett's advance in the Republican-controlled chamber.

Joe Biden's brother Jim 'emailed Hunter with a list of key "targets" including Andrew Cuomo, Chuck Schumer and Rick Scott for their investment venture with a Chinese businessman'

Joe Biden's brother Jim wrote a 2017 'wish list' of possible business contacts for their new venture, according to the New York Post - a list that included prominent Democrats, Republicans, world leaders and international business people.

The list was reportedly sent in an email to Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden's former business partner in a failed Chinese investment venture.

At the time the email was supposedly sent, Joe Biden was the former vice president, a private citizen, who had not yet declared his intention to run for office. Joe Biden is not mentioned in his brother's emails, the Post reported.

The Sackler family withdrew more than $10 billion from Purdue Pharma during the country's opioid crisis

Members of the Sackler family withdrew more than $10 billion from Purdue Pharma and put the money in family trusts and holding companies as pressure intensified over the nation's opioid epidemic, according to court documents.

The withdrawals came during a time when Purdue Pharma was accused of fueling the nation's opioid epidemic and amid growing concerns from many states that a significant amount of the family's wealth may be held overseas; therefore unavailable to plaintiffs seeking relief through the courts.

An audit shows that from 2008 through late 2018, the family withdrew more than eight times as much money from Purdue as the previous 13 years. Details of the withdrawals emerged during an audit of the company, which filed for bankruptcy in September. The audit, commissioned by Purdue, was filed in bankruptcy court Monday evening.

'The blood of children being shot is on your hands': Fresno DA slams Governor Newsom for his bail policies that have let violent criminals out of prison

A sudden rise in violent crime in a California county is drawing criticism from a local District Attorney who is laying the blame squarely at the feet of state governor Gavin Newsom.

The coronavirus pandemic coupled with new rules over bail practices has led to more criminals being let out from prison either early or simply without spending any time in jail at all.

Law enforcement officials and the District Attorney of Fresno county, in the central portion of the state, are not happy with Governor Newsom.

With just two months until Christmas, it is time to start thinking about presents. This year, what I would love to give my 91-year-old mother who has been self-isolating since March due to her age, is a safe and effective Covid-19 vaccine.

A Sordid Conspiracy To Deceive The American Electorate

Have we ever witnessed a stranger anomaly in modern presidential politics than the craven contempt the Biden campaign, the media and social media have shown for the American electorate in their disgraceful conspiracy to hide Joe Biden?

What bona fide presidential candidate would arrogantly hide in his basement during the heat of a campaign, especially in the last few weeks of an ever-tightening one?

If the liberal media weren’t providing Biden cover, he couldn’t get away with this. If they were even raising questions about his intentional invisibility, this campaign would look far different, and far less surreal.

As President Donald Trump has hopscotched the country, traveling thousands of miles to appear at vigorous, humongous campaign rallies, Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, are nowhere to be found. We’ve never had a presidential candidate virtually opt out of the campaign.

San Francisco Tech CEO Emails 10 Million Customers Urging Them To Vote For Biden

Offering yet another reminder of just how far-removed the hysterical hyper-liberalism of San Francisco and the Bay Area is from the normal American political baseline, the CEO of Expensify, one of the world's largest providers of expense account software, recently emailed all 10 million users of the firms' software pleading with them to vote for Vice President Joe Biden.

According to Bloomberg, the idea elicited "strong debate" within the company, which is based in San Francisco, with some employees disagreeing with the gesture. But CEO David Barrett, the driving force behind the message, said he decided to press ahead and hit 'send'.

Will Democracy's Myths Doom Liberty?

The Supreme Court declared in 1943, “There is no mysticism in the American concept of the State or of the nature or origin of its authority." In reality, the cardinal doctrines of contemporary democracy are layer upon layer of mystical claptrap. The phrases which consecrate democracy seep into many Americans’ minds like buried hazardous waste.

If Joe Biden wins the presidential election, voters will be told that our political system is redeemed: the “will of the people” is now clear, Biden will rule with “the consent of the governed,” and Americans are obliged to again trust and obey the federal government. If Donald Trump is reelected, much of the same media will continue howling about imaginary Russian plots. But these notions remain dangerous delusions regardless of who is declared the winner on Election Day.
