Email Dept of Justice and ask for investigation of "interstate crosscheck."

Here is email link to DOJ contact:

https://www.justice.gov/doj/webform/your-message-department-justice

Here is a sample email you can send:

Dear Attorney General Lynch:

Please investigate "interstate crosscheck," which may have purged thousands of registered voters from voting lists in many states.

Please try to complete such an investigation before Donald Trump takes office, and issue as complete a report as possible.

Sincerely,

A chance to confirm Merrick Garland on January 3rd?

From Crooks & Liars:

"David Waldman (KagroX on Twitter) has outlined how they can confirm Judge Merrick Garland on January 3rd for the few minutes that they will be the majority in the Senate. Waldman is a long-standing expert on Senate procedure and political plays. He was one of the first to call for passage of the ACA via reconciliation in the Senate after Scott Brown was elected.

"On January 3, 2017, Democrats will hold the majority in the Senate for a few minutes, until the newly-elected Senators are sworn in. Biden could convene the Senate in those few minutes and call for a vote. The majority could then suspend the rules and vote in Merrick Garland.

"The key here is that VP Biden would have to be willing to convene the Senate and recognize Senator Dick Durbin instead of Mitch McConnell. Durbin moves to re-nominate Garland, and Senate Democrats then vote to confirm him. They will have a quorum for those few minutes.

"It's bold. Garland would be confirmed by 34 Democrats and no Republicans. It will certainly enrage Republicans, but they're already enraged and full of hubris about how they're going to screw Democrats anyway, so what do they really have to lose?

"Not much. It takes courage. It takes a resolve to do what's right for this country, to reclaim the Supreme Court nomination Republicans think they stole from us. It takes backbone.

"Here's where the rubber meets the road. We're not talking about "comity" anymore. We're talking about conviction and confirmation."

Most of my posts have disappeared

Sunday, Oct. 30

Hello.

Just wondering why most of my posts have disappeared.

I joined recently and in a couple days got an automated message than I had posted more than 10 times. My total posts were about 15 or so.

But when I logged in today, I see that most of my posts have completely disappeared. No trace of them left at all.

FYI: I self-deleted the couple of my posts that remained.
