    I'm sure this will shock some of you, but thought I would let you all know, that today I've volunteered for the vaccine trials for Covid-19 held here in Douglas County. 

    I received my first shot today at 10:00 am, and I wanted to let you all know that it’s completely safe, with иo side effects whatsoeveя, and that I feelshκι χoρoshό я чувствую себя немного странно и я думаю, что вытащил ослиные уши.

    Russia Today is mocking Donald Trump with a deep-faked video showing him hosting a TV news show, should he lose November’s election. 

    RT said the video was satire, but added: “Seriously though, Mr. President, if you do want a job let us know, the canteen is very reasonable.”

      "joke"  or 'threat"

      It is probably true.
      Ia ms sure that Trump sees tv talk shows and thinks  I could do that so much better and it's all brand building and victimhood for him. It's what he does

    I just ran across this in the Washington Post. In short, a Pennsylvania court will allow election officials to discount ballots returned without the secrecy sleeve. I see a court challenge on the horizon:

      And it will end up being a 6 to 3 decision by SCOTUS.

        Only if they manage to jam Ginsburg's replacement through within the next 5 weeks. They need an answer by Election Day, Otherwise, it'll be 5-3 and many will see it as illegitimate.

      Or, people could follow directions better than they did in the primary.

      Or, the discarded ballots are close to an equivalent portion from every party, so they wind up being a wash in the election outcome.

      Or, the disqualified ballots trigger notifications to voters, and most of them wind up going to the polls in person during early voting or on November 3.

      While irritating and unnecessary, the decision is not a threat to the election.

        I'm not as sanguine as you regarding it not being a threat to the election:

        She urged them to pass a law making sure such ballots are counted, while floating the prospect of more than 100,000 votes being invalidated.

        It would also be more than double President Trump’s decisive margin from that election: about 45,000 votes.
