Gateway Pundit, Drudge Report, Scott Baio Beclown Selves, Fall for Troll’s Story of “Destroying Absentee Ballots”

And Rush Limbaugh went for it too

Let’s begin this week with yet another hilarious tale of self-beclownment by the fabled Stupidest Man on the Internet, Jim Hoft, shall we?

This morning Hoft set his caps lock key on stun and bashed out a screed about a POSTAL WORKER boasting about destroying absentee ballots that voted for Trump:

Hoft’s post is the usual borderline illiterate rant he churns out like a derp mill every single day: POSTAL WORKER Brags Online About Destroying Trump Ballots.

(Random bold text in original.)

An Ohio(?) man who describes himself as a postal worker bragged online this weekend about destroying Donald Trump absentee ballots.

This was posted by Twitter user Randygdub on Sunday–

He actually bragged about it!

Of course, Republican users were outraged to see this leftist brag about his criminal activity.

Actor Scott Baio tweeted this out on the alleged crime:

I hope you get fired! Cheating is the only way she’ll win. @realDonaldTrump Hey @JohnKasich is this okay with you? https​://t.​co/9mgk11KZHk

— Scott Baio (@ScottBaio) October 17, 2016

So will authorities follow up on this?

Hoft’s post was immediately broadcast to the right wing universe by Drudge Report:

But you know where this is going already, don’t you? Yes, Hoft fell for a random tweet by a notorious Twitter troll. (A guy I blocked a while ago because I already see enough trolling in my timeline.)

His first clue that this was an obvious fraud and not a real “postal worker” might have been the fact that you can’t tell who a ballot is being cast for by looking at the envelope (unless you have super troll-ray vision). And if this imaginary postal worker was actually opening the envelopes, he’d be just as likely to destroy ballots for Clinton. But that would require Hoft to have the ability to actually think and reason, and that’s clearly not in the cards.

The real question is why more people don’t troll right wing bloggers and media like this — they’ll obviously fall for anything if it plays into their confirmation biases.

UPDATE at 10/17/16 10:53:18 am by Charles Johnson

And if you really want to either laugh or get depressed (depending how you look at it), check out this Google search to see how this totally bogus story spread throughout the right wing blogs and media. This means we’re going to be hearing about it forever as a “fact” now.

UPDATE at 10/17/16 11:53:22 am by Charles Johnson

Betsy Woodruff reports that this obviously fake story was also picked up by the godfather of wingnut talk radio, Rush Limbaugh.

UPDATE at 10/17/16 11:57:39 am by Charles Johnson

Jim Hoft adds a hilarious update to his massive fail:

UPDATE: So the left says this story is a joke.
Because stealing elections is funny.

We have to get reports of fraud, manipulation and irregularities going so that they are part of permanent background noise. And we can all but bet on there being incidents of scuffles and violence at polling places as members of opposing camps face off before and after casting ballots. Those will also be touted as proof that the election results are somehow not valid or representative, especially if we see an embarrassingly big blowout on HRC’s part…

As will any other seats that become vacant. Part of the reason it seems to take forever for cases to reach SCOTUS in the first place is because of the backlog caused by courts remaining vacant due to the GOP putting “holds” on the President’s nominees.

Caught destroying was he? All that from a tweet. Who caught him…where is he today?

And the first line of the “story” at Proud Conservative web site: Voter fraud and election rigging is perhaps the worst in this presidential election that any in history. At least that’s the way it looks given all of the shady things that are happening against Trump.

The WORST IN HISTORY!!!

Oh my…this election is so full of Trumped Up Shit it is no longer funny. I now people like to bend words to hint at something bad…but this is just pure making a whole story out of nothing.

This is fantastic reporting from the “At Least the Way It Looks” school of journalism.

At Liberty, Gary Johnson cites Clarence Thomas as a model Supreme Court justice

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson told students at Liberty University in Lynchburg today that Justice Clarence Thomas is the type of jurist he would nominate to the U.S. Supreme Court as president.

“With regard to Supreme Court justices, it would be an issue of justices ruling on the basis of original intent of the Constitution,” Johnson said in a question and answer session following his remarks at the nation’s largest evangelical university.

Same Clarence Thomas who said that an American citizen could be held indefinitely without any type of hearing (Hamdi v. Rumsfeld)?

If indeed he’s under police investigation for what he’s been accused of, his Internet access has been suspended pending the outcome of that investigation.

This is the video that was going around FB that I spoke about in the previous thread. It was put out by anonymous. They have since corrected the title of the video to Russia and took out the header that was in the video itself that read “Russia Ballot Stuffing…” throughout the entire thing. Long story short, anonymous put this up originally, presenting it as happening in the primaries here in the U.S.. They finally acknowledged that it was Russia in the comments, and then finally changed the title completely. There are still people falling for it.

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott’s chief elections officer is under a strict court-imposed deadline to allow mail ballots with faulty signatures to be fixed in time to be counted in the upcoming election — a ruling that could affect thousands of Florida voters.

Calling state elections laws “a severe burden on the right to vote,” U.S. District Judge Mark Walker on Sunday overode Secretary of State Ken Detzner’s objections and ordered him to allow a fix in cases in which a voter’s signature on a mail ballot envelope does not match the signature on file.

“It’s a good order,” said Pinellas Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark. “Any law that results in more ballots being accepted is a good law.”

In a blistering opinion, Walker excoriated the state for having “consistently chipped away at the right to vote.”

If Detzner does not do as ordered by the close of business Monday, the judge said he will take “appropriate action,” which could include holding Detzner in contempt of court.

Attorneys for Detzner resisted the court action and unsuccessfully argued in court papers filed Friday that Detzner was not the appropriate official to be under an order because ballots are counted by counties, not the state.

That prompted an angry Walker to cancel a scheduled hearing and issue his extraordinary Sunday night ruling, three weeks before the presidential election.

The judge called it “at best disingenuous” for Detzner to tell the court that he wasn’t the proper party to get such an order, when he has routinely issued directives to them in the past.

Obviously its not a great thing when a large block of voters is convinced the election is rigged. However, as demonstrated by the McCain quote, the only way we will get a functioning Congress is to elect Democratic majorities to the House and Senate. And one way to achieve that is for Trump to spend the next three weeks convincing Republicans that they might as well not even bother voting because the election is rigged. Could there be some post-election violence? Yes, but I expect it will be just a smattering, and the good a Democratic government could do considerably outweighs that bad. So hurrah Trump! Keep telling your voters the election is already a done deal!

The real question is why more people don’t troll right wing bloggers and media like this — they’ll obviously fall for anything if it plays into their confirmation biases.

Yeah, but unfortunately, given the way RW media and its addled consumers operate, even the most idiotic trollery can get into the mainstream, and eventually get recognized as “reality”. To no one’s benefit (outside of the trolls themselves).

Interesting find at the Columbus Dispatch as I was looking for info on the postal worker story. Since I do not get the Dispatch delivered I did not see this story published yesterday. It has a local Columbus power-broker, billionaire involved in it. For those that may not know…Les Wexner started The Limited stores and now owns Victoria’s Secret, Pink (Victoria’s Secret), Bath & Body Works, Henri Bendel, The White Barn Candle Company, and La Senza, etc., etc.

The Columbus Dispatch - Capitol Insider: Trump may bring up sex offender who was once Wexner advisor

In a presidential campaign that apparently has lost any sense of boundaries, could we be hearing about L Brands founder Leslie H. Wexner’s former financial adviser next?

Both Steve Schmidt, adviser to John McCain’s presidential campaign, and advertising guru Donny Deutsch told MSNBC’s Morning Joe weeks ago that Jeffrey Epstein would be brought up by Donald Trump’s campaign.

Saturday, the Republican chairman of a major Ohio county said he heard it, too.

Epstein is a lifetime registered sex offender who served more than a year in prison for reduced charges in 2008 of having sex with a minor after authorities said he paid numerous underage girls for sex. He and his private Caribbean island have been linked to a variety of high-profile people, including Bill Clinton, who used his plane — dubbed by some the “Lolita Express.” But Trump also has hazy ties with Epstein.

A new book released last week on Epstein by James Patterson doesn’t shed much light on the relationships.

“We found nothing to connect Trump and Clinton to what Epstein did with young girls,” said co-author Tim Malloy, formerly of a West Palm Beach TV station, in a Miami Herald interview.

Epstein had been Wexner’s personal investment manager and was made a trustee of two Wexner foundations. The New Albany billionaire bought and remodeled a multimillion-dollar New York City mansion for Epstein.

In addition, this little tid-bit was also in the Capitol Insider notes:

Wexner silent on election
Speaking of Wexner, an L Brands spokesman told Dispatch Reporter Tim Feran the company “has nothing to share regarding how Les views the election.” But the man who held at 2008 fundraiser for John McCain has not yet donated to Trump.

Nobel panel gives up knockin’ on Dylan’s door

The Swedish Academy says it has given up trying to reach Bob Dylan, days after it awarded him the Nobel prize in literature.

“Right now we are doing nothing. I have called and sent emails to his closest collaborator and received very friendly replies. For now, that is certainly enough,” the academy’s permanent secretary, Sara Danius, told state radio SR on Monday.

So far the American troubadour has responded with silence since he won the prize on Thursday.

Something that has been missed in the avalanche of derp surrounding Donald Trump the last few days was a PBS Frontline programme that spoke of the backgrounds of both Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump.

Iframe

(PBS programme “The Choice,” aired September 27, two hours

Summary at Huffington Post of the Trump part of the article:
huffingtonpost.com

Essentially, Trump is a supporter of eugenics. This is his position on why he has a “great brain,” is rich, &c., all the same eugenics nonsense long debunked as science better understood genetics.

A problem with eugenics (the American programme which inspired the Nazis, and there were eugenicists in the early XX Century that advocated setting up gas chambers for “undesirables” is that the Supreme Court case Buck v Bell has never been overturned.

Thus, eugenics “solutions” are still perfectly legal if a state or Federal government chose to implement forced sterilisations, prohibiting contraceptives to middle and upper class women (as was done in the past), incarcerating epileptics or banning them from marriage as in the past, &c. Since the Buck v Bell case stands at odds with Loving v Virginia, a future conservative court in theory could strike down Loving in favour of Buck, thus reimposing anti-miscegenation laws.

Yes. It is.

Section 255.17 of the state penal law states, “A person is guilty of adultery when he engages in sexual intercourse with another person at a time when he has a living spouse, or the other person has a living spouse. Adultery is a class B misdemeanor.” A class B misdemeanor is punishable by up to 90 days in jail or a $500 fine.

In reality, of course, the law is rarely enforced. About a dozen people have been charged with adultery since the early 1970s, most of them upstate. (Most of the charges were dismissed, or apparently were dropped after the defendants pleaded guilty to other charges.)

While NY has since gone to no-fault divorces, it was once one of the grounds required to show for a divorce.

But then maybe more obstruction will finally make it clear to a majority of Americans that it is time to reload Congress with Democrats to get work done.

Actually, that’s pretty much the best argument as to why the GOP doesn’t deserve a majority in the Senate. They’ve spent the last year with their hands over their ears going “LA LALALALA can’t hear you” when it comes to Obama’s nominee and the multiple polls of voters telling them to vote on the nominee; now their basically going to say “aw fuck it, to one of like three jobs specifically laid out in the constitution for them? I seriously do not understand that logic - this is straight up, when you’re in a hole quit digging terrotiroy and instead they’re calling for a backhoe.

Moreover, Chuck Grassley stated long before Merrick Garland’s nomination that he didn’t think that President Obama (should the need come up) would nominate a worthwhile jurist like Merrick Garland.

Mitch McConnell is on record repeatedly stating nominations should be up to “the voters.”

So now, McCain gives away the real game: the GOP simply will not accept a nomination from a Democrat.

We cannot have a representative democracy if one political party chooses not to participate in democracy. The collapse of the GOP would be a good thing (major parties have collapsed before) if they cannot clean their own house; perhaps a new rational conservative party would rise to take their place, or perhaps an existing party (like the Libertarians) would do so.

I didn’t think the Fifth Amendment protection extended to civil actions. If you could take the Fifth during a deposition because you didn’t want to hurt your case, no one would ever answer a question during a deposition.

You can exercise you’re Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in a civil action. But there is a difference between illegal and unlawful. Breaching a contract is unlawful but not illegal (with certain exceptions, like a contract for murder or bigamy). It’s rare when there’s criminal liability involved in a civil action - and often when there is, the attorneys will try and stay the civil action pending the criminal case being resolved (because if there’s a jury verdict they can use the conviction as res judicata, since the standard is higher in criminal matters than in civil cases).

I’m pretty convinced that, if the Dems manage to retake the Senate Nov 8th, come Nov 9th the GOP will suddenly be amenable to scheduling a confirmation hearing and vote for Garland. The smartest thing the President could do in that instance is immediately rescind the nomination and say “The GOP is right, the voters should have a say, so I’ll leave the nomination of Justice Scalia’s replacement to the new administration.”

It is quite possible President Obama had that conversation with Judge Garland before he nominated him. The GOP was already going on about “no nominations” before President Obama announced Garland as his choice.

Judge Garland could withdraw his own name, as he already has a seat on the appellate court.

I wonder what a realignment would look like in contemporary American politics. I could see some sort of populist social conservative party forming, likely based in the South. I could also see a fiscal conservative/social moderate party forming that would probably have more of a national base that might even draw some from Democratic ranks. That could move the Democrats a bit more leftward. But a regional party in the South seems the most likely outcome regardless of anything else.

He used to be a Republican, but about the time my wife joined the Libertarian Party (she got better and is a Democrat now), he joined the Democratic Party; he could not stand the idiot road (shoutout to the Arrogant Worms) the Republicans have decided to travel. He is of the opinion they cannot be saved, even from themselves.

If they continue, they will become less relevant. If they try to change from within (as in the 2008 and 2012 autopsy reports), their base will desert them. He is convinced they are screwed no matter what they do, because they baked this result into the cake.

With all Trump’s latest whining about a “rigged” election that hasn’t even occurred yet, it made me want to re-read Al Gore’s concession speech. Below are some standout blurbs that exhibited what an actual patriot sounds like.

Just moments ago, I spoke with George W. Bush and congratulated him on becoming the 43rd president of the United States. And I promised him that I wouldn’t call him back this time. I offered to meet with him as soon as possible so that we can start to heal the divisions of the campaign and the contest through which we’ve just passed.

[…]

I know that many of my supporters are disappointed. I am too. But our disappointment must be overcome by our love of country.

[…]

President-elect Bush inherits a nation whose citizens will be ready to assist him in the conduct of his large responsibilities. I, personally, will be at his disposal, and I call on all Americans — I particularly urge all who stood with us — to unite behind our next president.

[…]

Now the political struggle is over and we turn again to the unending struggle for the common good of all Americans and for those multitudes around the world who look to us for leadership in the cause of freedom.

Contrast Gore’s words above to Trump’s unhinged rant below:

The contrast is clear and wide.

Yeah, I was just looking at 538 and seeing that he’s already fallen below the 6% mark he’s sat at pretty comfortably for weeks. Meanwhile, Hillary is gaining while Trump remains pretty much where he’s been. Which tells me my earlier prediction is shaping up to be true, that as we get towards the election, the “I’m voting third-party to be hip” crowd are beginning to quietly admit they’re going to vote for Hillary.

Probably more the issue that Assange seems to be a pedophile.

Actually, I just realized that there is a bit of a pattern with Putin, because Trump is alleged to have walked into the changing rooms for Miss Teen USA.

Putin seems to like pedophiles and perverts, is what I am saying.

My prediction: Trump will go down in flames and his fickle supporters will seek a new EmperorGod like oh, I dunno, the eternal David Duke and they will be just an ineffectual as always dumbass fringe. Media will no longer be interested and the rubes will just scream on Twitter and Facebook as they have always done. Too lazy to do any actual work to accomplish anything. Just scream and be obnoxious.

Remember: the bulk of Trump supporters are people who hate politicians and politics as usual, and are supporting DT to spite and punish the GOP as well as the Democratic party.

That actually is a problem.

It’s an old issue with FOIA requests, and one that’s not easy to get around once you recognize what’s causing it. The problem is in the informational gestalt that is greater than any one particular piece of the puzzle. Each email, by itself, might be seemingly meaningless and not classifiable, but once they start getting released to the public en masse the FBI / classifying agency has to go through them all and see if a larger classifiable picture can be put together from the constituent puzzle pieces.

That is often how shit ends up getting classified retroactively, not because any particular email or document should’ve been classified when sent / created, but because the sheer amount of information being released to the public makes it problematic after the fact.

Depends on what they do with it… I was figuring the body in the pool was another Krieger-bot, if the show came back. But now there’s talk that all of next season will be a coma dreamland story with Archer as a PI in the 1940s. And considering how many times Archer has actually be shot and/or (nearly) killed, I’m not entirely sure 3 bullets to the chest and spending 10 minutes face down in a pool would be enough (remember, he basically thinks he’s immortal).

Getting clearer all the time while Cillizza never wrote back regarding my Clinton email coverage questions to him a couple months ago.

Even though, I wrote a very calm email, I bet he took it as criticism of him. If that is the case, good!

He seems to have hung his career on Clinton Emails. I hope that means his career is over after the election when Clinton hopefully wins and it puts the email “scandal” on the back, back, back burner and people move on to a newer outrage.
