Trump supporter attacked couple with a golf club in White Bear Lake, charges say

A man who identified as a supporter of President Donald Trump used a golf club to assault an older couple sitting by a political sign in White Bear Lake, charges say.

Mark Anthony Ulsaker, 50, of Lino Lakes, is charged with one count of second-degree assault, one count of fourth-degree assault of a peace officer and one count of threats of violence, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday in Ramsey County District Court.

At about 3:20 p.m. Sunday, White Bear Lake police officers responded to the intersection of Minnesota 96 and Centerville Road after receiving multiple 911 calls from witnesses reporting a man assaulting two people with a golf club, the complaint said.

When officers arrived, they found a group of people standing on the northeast corner of the intersection, and the couple, an 80-year-old man and a 78-year-old woman. A witness told police that the suspect, a man in his mid-40s, walked up behind the couple and began to swing his club at their heads, the complaint said. The club broke in the process and the suspect then punched the man in the head.

I Just spoke with an Admin with the election office.

I inquired about the voting issues they were having. They are still counting votes and replicating the ballots that got rejected when scanning them the first time because the bar codes were unreadable. The process is slow and a member of every party is present. Dem-rep-lib-grn.

They are counting every vote and that it will take until the rest of the week. They should have the vote tally down by Monday with ALL votes counted, absentee, provisionals, overseas ballots being processed.

I discussed the optics of the networks calling the election on election night and that when the networks do this it causes confusion and people believe someone is cheating. She agreed that it is an issue. But what ya gonna do. The networks have a dog and pony show for all of us glued to our tv's waiting for the FINAL tallies. Only to be misled because not all votes are tallied that night.

KEEP THE FAITH. There are apparently a lot of votes still not processed the Texas. And TEXAS could very well be BLUE! TIME WILL TELL!

Far-right extremists pose rising threat in North Texas around election, FBI's Dallas office says

The FBI’s Dallas field office warned law enforcement this week that far-right extremist groups are likely to expand their influence and could pose a violent threat in North Texas, especially between the Nov. 3 election and January’s presidential inauguration.

The election could serve as a “potential flashpoint,” says a field office report that was first made public by The Nation.

The field office’s report — marked “unclassified/law enforcement sensitive” — says the fringe boogaloo movement is likely to step up its violent anti-government rhetoric and criminal activities, increasing the threat of violence in North Texas.


I guess we just saw a run up to this at the Denton Buc-ees. That goon-thug did get arrested. Keep safe out there, everyone and remember to always be aware of your surroundings!

Montana Man Charged with 64 Child Sex Crimes Gets Deferred Prison Sentence

After accepting a plea deal from prosecutors, a Montana man who was charged with 64 individual counts, including rape and sexual abuse of children, may never spend any time behind bars after receiving a 1-year deferred prison sentence on Monday.

William Edward Miller Jr., according to reports, received the sentence from Judge Elizabeth Best.

Miller will be on unsupervised probation for the next year. If, after the year, the 51-year-old has committed no other crimes, the entire matter will be expunged from his record.

He was accused of raping a 14-year-old girl and permitting an 11-year-old boy to rape her, too.

In August of 2019, state authorities filed 64 counts of sexual abuse of children, alleging that Miller possessed images of child pornography and bestiality on his phone and laptop.

In court, Miller said the entire case destroyed the lives of him and his wife. "We're suffering," the paper quotes him as saying. "I’ve served time in jail for stuff that I didn’t even do." Miller said he wants to be a good person but has had "really bad luck," the paper reports.


WOW, this is NOT justice. What about the child this deranged man RAPED. Will she get murdered by this "man" like that other woman received after the early release of her tormentor?

A Mail Carrier Took People's Absentee Ballot Requests And Switched Their Party To Republican

A West Virginia mail carrier is facing prison time after admitting he attempted election fraud by changing the party registrations of people who had requested absentee ballots for the state's June primary, officials announced Thursday.

Thomas Cooper, 47, of Dry Fork signed an agreement in which he pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to defraud the residents of West Virginia of a fair election and one count of injury to the mail.

Cooper attorney Scott Curnutte told BuzzFeed News his client had engaged in a "silly lark."

"He is deeply sorry for the implications for our democratic process," Curnutte said. "It should be remembered, however, that the mail he altered were requests for ballots, not ballots themselves."


NEWSFLASH: Scott Curnutte, they voters would have received ballots for the republicons. GOOBER

Can welders shields work for hospitals?

Not certain they would work but better than using coke bottles.

Greg Abbott has issued a Proclamation Allowing Postponement of Local Elections Until Nov 3rd

Tarrant County Democratic Party posted this on fb.

The move comes after Abbott issued a disaster declaration over the pandemic that paved the way for him to suspend parts of the state’s election code to allow for postponements. Notably, individual municipalities will still have to act to postpone their elections, but Abbott urged officials to move them to November.

"I strongly encourage local election officials to take advantage of these waivers and postpone their elections until November," Abbott said in a statement. "Right now, the state's focus is responding to COVID-19 — including social distancing and avoiding large gatherings. By delaying this election, our local election officials can assist in that effort."

Abbott’s proclamation comes on the heels of Texas Democrats’ request for the state to consider a universal voting-by-mail contingency plan for the upcoming elections, including the May 26 runoff that Abbott has not yet issued guidance on. The proposal would mark a massive expansion of voting by mail, which has been fairly limited in Texas. To be eligible under typical circumstances, a voter has to be 65 years or older, have a disability or illness, be out of the county during the election period, or be confined in jail.


So, shut down elections meanwhile Texas schools remain open.

We have a senatorial runoff, so How will it be determined who is Cornyn's challenger?

Will Abbott draw their names out of a hat?
