trump/republicans sued to stop ballot counting in NV. They ... LOST

https://twitter.com/AaronDFordNV/status/1319759978593308672
my @NevadaAG’s Office just defeated Pres. Trump's & @NVGOP's request for a temporary restraining order to stop the counting of the ballots.

Again I say, we will always protect the right to vote, and we won't let it be suppressed.

PROUD BOYS IN NWFL: After an event in Milton earlier this week, questions were raised about who provided security. Channel 3 has confirmed it was members of the far-right group, Proud Boys. @mattgaetz attended the event. Coming up on @weartv - what he had to say about the group.

BREAKING: GOP Sens. Collins and Murkowski vote no on moving to consider the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS.

This was something they forecast when the opening happened, now they've followed through.

GOP still has enough votes to proceed however.


All planned to give them political cover in their respective states

Florida - Early Voting Stats - Oct 22-23

Oct 22

#Election2020 #Florida #EarlyVote #MailInBallots

Summary of votes submitted in FL as of 10/22 8:27am

Dems w/a COMMANDING lead in Vote-by-Mail (+550k)
Reps w/a small lead in-person early voting (+91k)

applied a 50/40 split (Rep/Dem) for no party affiliation (was 47/43 in 2016)


I'm being more pessimistic on the split for no party affiliation voters than we saw in 2016. Even with that slightly pessimistic viewpoint, Dems could conceivably have a sizeable lead as of this morning of ~381,000 votes...so far. That's a lot of ground to makeup from in-person voting from republicans

In 2016, a total of 9,618,915 were cast. 2,758,617 were vote-by-mail and election day numbers were close to that at 2,959,085. Total early in-person votes in 2016 were 3,876,753 and about 24k provisional ballots.

FL has already blown past vote-by-mail returns this year with about 3,200,000

SOOO...ESTIMATED current split between Biden/trump is 52.9/44.0 (ignoring other candidates)!

Wow. fox news national correspondent confirms hunter "scandal" is NOTHING!

I completed searching all of Tony Bobulinski’s emails. They establish:
• the “Chairman” is China.
• NO ROLE for Joe Biden in emails/docs
• Tony Bobulinski states himself there are NO OTHER MEMBERS besides Hunter Biden, Jim Biden, Rob Walker, James Gillar, and Bobulinski


someone will probably need to be updating their resume....

NYT - Out of Work in America

https://twitter.com/marclacey/status/1319604944551464960
As you go to work today realize that millions of Americans would do anything to be in your shoes. We teamed up with news organizations across America to capture joblessness in 2020. Please take a few minutes to read.



https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/10/22/us/pandemic-unemployment-covid.html
Americans have endured economic crises before but none quite like this one. To capture the depths of the suffering, The New York Times teamed up with local news organizations across the country earlier in the year to document the lives of a dozen Americans who found themselves out of work.

For months, we followed them as they dialed unemployment hotlines, applied to hundreds of jobs and counted every dollar in their bank accounts for rent and food. All of it while trying to survive a pandemic.

Gut-wrenching. Heart-breaking. So many stories like theirs.

A former co-worker I still keep in touch with reached out to me a month ago. He’d still not received ANY unemployment from the state of FL. Had been laid off for about 3 months. Had the most seniority in his dept and he and another more senior person were let go and two younger ones kept.

Said he’d been falling into depression. He’s married with 4 kids.

I helped him a little a few times and then he shared good news a couple weeks ago that he got a job better than he’d had before. I was so thrilled for him

But so many still without any prospects struggling to not just get by but struggling to survive!
