The report, which was published by the fact-checking site, Snopes, states that the convoy of trucks that were seen on video surrounding a Biden-Kamala Harris bus on Texas' Interstate 35, organized the event in a private Facebook page called the Alamo City Trump Train. The report also notes that messages between the group's members suggested that they were armed with guns.

According to the report, on October 30, one group member posted "#OperationBlockTheBus RN," with "RN" referring to "right now."

Birx urges stepped-up coronavirus response, warning of 'most deadly phase of this pandemic': report

Source: market watch

Last Updated: Nov. 2, 2020 at 10:59 p.m. ET

Washington Post says internal report sharply contradicts Trump’s messaging on COVID-19

A new report by a top White House coronavirus adviser warns that the U.S. is entering “most deadly phase of this pandemic,” explicitly contradicting President Donald Trump, who has recently claimed in the country is “rounding the corner” on the pandemic, according to the Washington Post.

The Post reported Monday night that Dr. Deborah Birx issued the internal report earlier in the day, urging “much more aggressive action” and warning that “we are entering the most concerning and most deadly phase of this pandemic … leading to increasing mortality.”

“This is not about lockdowns — It hasn’t been about lockdowns since March or April. It’s about an aggressive balanced approach that is not being implemented,” Birx said in the report, according to the Post. The memo also reportedly warned against the type of mass gatherings that Trump has been holding around the country.

The New York Times later independently confirmed the Post report.

Trump has repeatedly downplayed the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, saying the U.S. will soon “round the corner” and the virus will “disappear.”

I still remember Birx making this suck up statement!!

"[Trump is] so attentive to the scientific literature & the details & the data. I think his ability to analyze & integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit” -- this is shocking, hackish stuff from Dr. Birx.

Trump Reportedly Telling Advisers He’s Increasingly Spooked at the Prospect of Being Indicted if He Loses

Nov 2nd, 2020, 3:50 pm

President Donald Trump is reportedly telling his advisers that he is becoming increasingly nervous about the fact that he could be indicted if he loses the election on Tuesday.

Trump is currently protected from indictment under all federal laws because he’s president, but if he loses, that would all change.

Trump has gone through great lengths to avoid releasing his taxes, leaving him vulnerable to being indicted for tax fraud. Cyrus Vance Jr., the district attorney for Manhattan, is also probing the possibility that Trump has provided insurers with false information regarding his financial position in order to receive lower premiums and interest rates on loans...........................

Despite being publicly optimistic about the results, the president has told his advisers that he expects to be investigated by prosecutors if he loses, according to The New York Times. He is nervous about both existing investigations and of new federal probes post Election Day..........

From a pro-Trump super PAC to the president’s eldest son, conservatives have blown past Facebook’s fact-checking guardrails, with few consequences.

In the final months of the presidential campaign, prominent associates of President Trump and conservative groups with vast online followings have flirted with, and frequently crossed, the boundaries set forth by Facebook about the repeated sharing of misinformation.

From a pro-Trump super PAC to the president’s eldest son, however, these users have received few penalties, according to an examination of several months of posts and ad spending,

3as well as internal company documents. In certain cases, their accounts have been protected against more severe enforcement because of concern about the perception of anti-conservative bias, said current and former Facebook employees, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the matter’s sensitivity.

These people said the preferential treatment has undercut Facebook’s own efforts to curb misinformation, in particular the technologies put in place to downgrade problematic actors. Toward the end of last year, around the time Facebook-owned Instagram was rolling out labels obscuring fact-challenged posts and directing users to accurate information, the company removed a strike against Donald Trump Jr. for a fact-check on the photo-sharing service that would have made him a so-called repeat offender, fearing the backlash that would have ensued from the accompanying penalties, according to two former employees familiar with the matter.

These penalties can be severe, including reduced traffic and possible demotion in search. One former employee said it was among numerous strikes removed over the past year for the president’s family members.

A spokesman for Donald Trump Jr. did not respond to multiple emails seeking comment.
Facebook spokeswoman Andrea Vallone did not dispute the detail, saying the company is “responsible for how we apply enforcement, and as a matter of diligence, we will not apply a penalty in rare cases when the rating was not appropriate or warranted under the program’s established guidelines.”.........................

Federal authorities expected to erect 'non-scalable' fence around White House

By Paul LeBlanc, CNN

Updated 12:09 AM ET, Mon November 2, 2020

Washington (CNN)Federal authorities are expected to put back into place a "non-scalable" fence around the entire perimeter of the White House on Monday as law enforcement and other agencies prepare for possible protests surrounding the election, a source with knowledge of the matter confirmed to CNN.
The fence, the same type that was put up during protests this summer, will encompass the Ellipse and Lafayette Square. It will go down 15th Street to Constitution Avenue and then over to 17th Street. The fence will then run up to H Street and across by Lafayette, and then come down 15th Street, the source said.
NBC News was first to report the new fencing. The Secret Service did not respond to a request for comment.
The extra layer of security marks the most high-profile example to date of authorities preparing for unrest following this year's election, particularly if there is no clear winner come November 4. ..........................
