John James, MI GOP candidate for US Senate, linked to rally organizer where kidnap plot formed

Michigan Republican linked to organizer of rally where militia allegedly plotted to kidnap Whitmer
The rally drew numerous extremist groups, including the Proud Boys, the Boogaloo Bois and the alleged coup plotters
James, along with Vice President Mike Pence, was photographed with Ryan D. Kelley, a Grand Rapids real estate agent who heads the American Patriot Council, in since-deleted social media images reviewed by Salon. President Donald Trump was also pictured with Kelley in a photo posted to his Facebook profile.

Kelley was the organizer of the "Well-Regulated Militia" rally at the Michigan capitol in June. The FBI alleged in court documents that the leader of the group who plotted the attack on Whitmer met with militia leader Ty Garbin and a confidential source at the rally to discuss a plan and recruit more members.

Federal Election Commission records also show that Kelley has donated thousands to James' campaign. James, who lost his 2018 Senate bid, is virtually tied with incumbent Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., in the latest New York Times/Siena College poll.


Will Trump win [FL] again? Watch Florida's Sumter County for first election night clue.

Last week, Democrats took delight in the spectacle of a 500-golf cart flotilla of Joe Biden supporters parading through Florida's largest retirement community en route to turn in their vote-by-mail ballots.

It was a rare sight: The Villages is one of the most staunchly Republican enclaves in the Sunshine State.


And it has trended Republican: it voted for Mitt Romney by 35 points in 2012, for Trump by 39 points in 2016, and for Florida GOP Sen. Rick Scott by 42 points in 2018. But the fact the Biden campaign has even so much as a pulse in Sumter gives Democrats hope they can narrow the margins in a Trump stronghold enough to win Florida and cut off Trump's path to a second term.


I'll be looking at Sumter and Pinellas," says veteran Florida Democratic strategist Steve Schale, referring to another senior-heavy county in the St. Petersburg-Clearwater area. "Both of them are really old and over 80 percent white. And you could have 80 to 85 percent of the vote there reported by 7:15pm."

If Biden cuts the deficit in Sumter to around 30% (or even lower), then thats a VERY good sign hell take FL. Well see how much seniors are willing to put self over lifelong patterns of bigotry (Ill take it)

I'd rather ... than vote for trump

Id rather clean out a row of Port-a-Potties at a NASCAR race with my bare hands and bare-naked and with only a used kleenex than vote for trump

Yikes! Oxygen supply fails in Russian module on ISS. Crew ok

The International Space Station is all about redundancy. There's more than one toilet on the ISS, and there's more than one oxygen supply system that provides precious air for the crew in orbit. It's still not great when one of those systems fails.

An oxygen supply system in the Russian-built Zvezda module of the station failed Wednesday, according to an AFP report. It's not the only oxygen generation system on board, so the crew of six -- which includes three new arrivals from NASA and Roscosmos -- is not in danger.

A Roscosmos spokesperson told AFP that the crew will work to repair the issue this week.

Zvezda has been in orbit for 20 years. NASA describes it as "the early cornerstone for the first human habitation of the station." It contains living quarters, flight systems and life support systems.


it's retweeting muslim extremists, QAnon trolls, fake christians, multiple Rand Paul tweets and people who say they voted for him

He's fucking nuts this morning

One MAJOR thing I noticed watching Biden for 90 min

I do NOT feel anxious. I do NOT feel angry.

I feel calm.
I feel reassured.

Biden Townhall - Joe is solid! He impressed a woman who voted trump in 2016. *Running commentary*

Wonderful dialogue

BREAKING: Elliott Broidy is set to plead guilty to a conspiracy charge during his arraignment Oct

(Bloomberg) -- Elliott Broidy, a former top political fundraiser for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party, plans to plead guilty to participating in an illegal foreign lobbying scheme and cooperate with investigators in the matter, according to a person familiar with the situation. Broidy was charged on Oct. 8 with illegally lobbying the Trump administration to stop investigating the embezzlement scandal at the 1MDB Malaysian state investment fund. Jho Low, a Malaysian fugitive who was charged as the mastermind of the 1MDB fraud, initially paid Broidy $6 million to lobby the U.S. Justice Department to stop its investigation and promised an additional $75 million if the lobbying succeeded, prosecutors said.

Two other people involved in the scheme have already pleaded guilty: George Higginbotham, a former Justice Department official, and Nickie Mali Lum Davis, a Broidy business associate.

Broidy is scheduled to be arraigned at a virtual hearing in Washington on Oct. 20.

Lamest, biggest self-own. Ever.

I tweeted a link to the NYP story right after it dropped yesterday morning. I immediately reached out to the Biden campaign to see if they had any answer. I wish i had given the story a closer read before tweeting it. @twitter suspended me
