"Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it." -- George Orwell, 1984
Steve Bannon, former chief strategist for President Trump’s White House and current head of the War Room, the most compelling show on the Internet about current events, will not be going to jail today.
President Joe Biden just got another round of horrible news as November’s crucial midterm elections have arrived.
A brand new poll found that just 39 percent of respondents approved of the job Biden is doing as president. Only 9 percent said they believe the country is heading in the right direction under Biden and Democratic leadership, with a whopping 74 percent saying America is on the wrong track.
President Joe Biden, who had been sounding an optimistic note about the midterms, finally conceded Monday night that it'll be 'tougher' for his party to win the House as polls point to a Republican victory.
'I think we'll win the Senate. I think the House is tougher,' the president told reporters at the White House after he returned from his final campaign rally, where he pleaded with voters to send more Democrats to Congress.
“We have now confirmed Internet down on all public schools in Houston major centers for voting including West Gray the largest. No Wi-Fi, they’re turning the red wave away this morning in what appears to be coordinated voter suppression. As best we can, we have some people getting names of poll workers recording them saying their name and getting them to confirm”
In Buckhead, Atlanta, GA…
Big voting problems in Atlanta. 3/4 of the voting machines are down at Sutton Elementary (next to Chastain) and just over the Buckhead line the church across from Holy Innocents is turning voters away citing “issues”.
In New York…
So far, doors have been locked, someone “forgot the keys”, wifi down, voting machine broken
Maricopa County officials say that around 20% of their polling sites are experiencing issues with tabulation machines across the Valley, just hours into Election Day.
While the specific addresses and number of locations having issues have not been confirmed, the Maricopa County Recorder's Officer says technicians have been called to fix the precinct tabulator machines that aren't working.
"We've had a few tabulator issues at a couple locations where the tabulator isn't immediately taking the ballot," Richer said after being asked about two locations with reported issues - Burton Barr Library and Christ Lutheran Church. "Instead it can either be Central count tabulated here, or if that issue can be addressed there, then it can be fed into the tabulator - or voters can go to any of the other 221 voting locations."
Officials say that not every machine is broken at the affected voting sites, so residents may still be able to submit their ballots at the locations of their choice. It is still unknown why so many of the machines are having issues.
An arson investigation was underway on Tuesday after seven fires erupted overnight at two churches, a gas station and four other buildings near Mississippi's Jackson State University, officials told local media.
Video footage showed the worst of the seven fires near the historically Black college left Epiphany Church in ruins. There were no reports of any injuries, ABC affiliate WAPT reported.
The Jackson Fire Department began receiving calls at around 2.45 a.m., Assistant Chief Patrick Armon told WAPT. The Jackson Fire Department did not immediately respond to queries from Reuters.
All fires were extinguished by early Tuesday morning, hours before polls opened in Mississippi and other states, with voters casting ballots for congressional seats and other public offices.
Pennsylvania lieutenant governor and Democratic US Senate candidate John Fetterman predicted on Monday that his Republican challenger, Dr. Mehmet Oz, will take an early lead on election day, only for a "dramatic" change to happen overnight as more ballots are counted, according to the Western Journal.
"Counting for ballots cast by mail and early in-person cannot begin until Election Day, thanks to the GOP-controlled legislature — an intentional move to help Republicans baselessly sow doubt about the election results when it suits them,” Fetterman wrote in a memo to “interested parties," reads a memo from Fetterman, according to the Washington Post.
With help from left-wing organizations, the largest urban cities and counties in the battleground state of Pennsylvania are going all-out to help thousands of voters replace flawed ballots submitted via mail.
Pennsylvania law requires that voters "shall...fill out, date and sign the declaration" printed on the ballot's outer envelope. Republicans have been litigating to ensure that election officials follow the law and invalidate ballots with improperly prepared envelopes.
Depending on where you live, it seems any date will do just fine. "There has been evidence that at least some Pennsylvania counties have deemed any date to be acceptable, even dates in the future," according to the Associated Press.
A bomb threat called into a New York City school Sunday temporarily suspended operations at the early voting site, police and election officials said.
Election workers and early voters were evacuated from the East Harlem school around 12 p.m. until the NYPD could provide the “all clear.”
“The NYPD notified us of a bomb scare at 1573 Madison Ave, which is an early voting site. Emergency protocols were initiated immediately. Staff along w/ a handful of voters were escorted out safely,” Board of Elections Deputy Executive Director Vincent Ignizio wrote on Twitter.
No one was injured and police are searching for the suspect.
Pennsylvania voters lined up for hours last night to fix voided mail-in and absentee ballots in a last-ditch effort to sway one of the closest races in the country between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz.
At Philadelphia City Hall, voters lined up for three hours to ensure their votes would be counted after a Supreme Court ruling last week canceled 3,800 mail-in and absentee ballots across the state.
Republicans have sued all over the country to cancel mailed votes that do not have dates written on their envelopes.
Another renowned cardiologist has sacrificed his career to come forward and blow the whistle about the global spike in “sudden and unexpected” deaths and heart attacks in healthy people.
Dr. Peter McCullough has spoken out to warn the public that vaccines are damaging the hearts of young people, including athletes, causing them to suffer cardiac arrests, and in some cases, die prematurely.
In an explosive video interview with WND, McCullough points out that rare cases of sudden death were handled differently in the past.
China will focus on preparing for war with the country's security 'increasingly unstable and uncertain', President Xi Jinping has declared.
Beijing will now comprehensively strengthen its military training and preparation for any war, Xi said today, according to state broadcaster CCTV.
His warning comes after Xi last month called for faster military development, 'self-reliance and strength' in technology and defence of China's interests abroad, raising the likelihood of further conflict.
As the COVID lies are now being exposed at exponential speed, some of those proven wrong are getting nervous — so nervous, in fact, they’re now pleading to just let bygones be bygones.
The Atlantic1 has come under fire for suggesting that all the terrible pandemic-era decisions over lockdowns, school closures, masking and punishing an entire class of people who questioned the efficacy and wisdom of taking a rushed, experimental vaccine — for a virus with a 99% survival rate in most — should all be water under the bridge.
Brown University economist Emily Oster writes in The Atlantic,2 “We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID.” Brendon Marotta in his Substack Hegemon Media3 recounts:
“I believe perpetrators call for forgiveness because they fear punitive justice. If the perpetrators were held accountable in our current justice system, the scale of the wrongdoing would result in punishments the perpetrators could not bear.
These punishments would also not give those who lost their jobs, businesses, friends, family, health, or freedom anything back. What if there was another way that would be better for both victims and perpetrators?
