(ugh, got new-posted hard)

So 538 has ticked over to 76-1-23 today. This seems to be on some good state polling (I don’t see now MN can be considered competitive at this point, and WI is getting there fast).

Ohio, Texas, Georgia numbers are close-ish, but I don’t really expect to see wins there unless it’s a total wipeout. PA is looking good. Florida is light blue on my internal map, but I expect we won’t know until election day.

I see the election something like this: 270towin.com

Note that Biden wins without Ohio, and without Florida. And can lose either Arizona or Pennsylvania and still get over the line. And has plenty of bonus states. Though I really don’t want him to be showing up at the EC vote with 270…

Fucking DHL. They take every bad thing about USPS, UPS, & FedEx and roll them up into one horrifically hideous package. I ordered a present last month. It shipped from Bulgaria on the 10th and got to Minneapolis at 7 am the 14th. And sat there. They’ll deliver it tomorrow supposedly.

Thankfully my sword from China was handed over to UPS by the Chinese shipping company and is going to be here tomorrow as well.

Enough to drive me nuts.

I actually went and checked on 91-divoc. It looks like after a huge spike in early August, most states - and by extension, the United States overall - has largely come back down. Hmm, I wonder what changed in August that suddenly places that were accelerating on rapid exponential curves started to abate?

With that said, I changed the chart to show the daily positivity rate, which has been the metric I’ve been keeping my eye on the most. Here’s a list for you:

Idaho

And there’s a 10% gap between Idaho, at 28%, and Alabama, at 18%. Holy crap.

Thanks to local college radio I recently found a cool LA punk band I had never heard of, Illuminati Hotties.

Their latest album leans heavy, but has some cool nerd-core, math-rock, even old-school Weezer type influences. Ear-worm incoming with one of the most mellow, catchy, and relatable songs from the album:

re: #10 dangerman

Congressional Republicans aren’t servile to Trump. They are collaborators with him and are complicit in all of Trump’s crimes and corruption. Particularly for the Senate Republicans, since they are the only people in the country who could actually remove Trump from office tomorrow.

So the natural conclusion is that Republicans like what they see in Trump, including the bigotry, crimes, corruption, gross stupidity and malignant narcissism.

The last county in Panhandle Public Health District has reported its first case of Covid-19.

Grant County is not in the Panhandle, but they caucus with us.

There was another death in Scott’s Bluff County, raising the number to eight. (All eight have been there.)

In total, there are ninety-four active cases.

Twenty new cases were reported today.

The largest age group remains 20-29, and women and girls are still 2/3 of cases.

Only three towns have had no cases: mine, and Lisco and Llewellyn in Garden County.

Counterfeit bills are showing up across Lincoln, and police there are urging workers to check currency for telltale signs.

Between Sept. 1 and Wednesday, the Lincoln Police Department investigated 21 incidents in which people tried to pass counterfeit bills. The bills showed up at such businesses as convenience stores, gas stations and restaurants, police said.

The counterfeit currency is ranging from $5 bills to $100 bills.

Counterfeit bills can be detected in several ways, police said. Workers at the businesses that were given the bills noticed the money “didn’t feel right” and also did not have some basic security features such as the orange background colors. In other cases, police said, the bills lacked the embedded security thread that glows when illuminated by UV light. (more)

As expected after our state AG got involved threatening to take the Big Ten to court:

Husker football players drop lawsuit against Big Ten (Omaha World-Herald)

Players earned a partial victory in their motion for early discovery when a Lancaster County District Court ruled Sept. 2 that the Big Ten must produce certain documents — primarily its governing bylaws and evidence that an 11-3 vote to postpone took place among the Council of Presidents and Chancellors — by last weekend. The court said the league didn’t have to disclose medical documents or data related to its postponement decision or how individual schools voted at the time.

In the last two weeks they have gotten over 400k registered to vote so far. If they can get at least the same percent to vote, that will seriously help in the election.

If you thought Delaware RepubliKKKlans scraped the bottom of the barrel running Christine O’Donnell for Senator…they dug thru the bottom of the barrel and went full China syndrome with the latest asshole they nominated!

joemygod.com

With her victory still just hours old, the newest Republican Senate nominee publicly thanked a white nationalist leader who marched in the “Unite the Right” rally and has questioned the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust.

Witzke has posted racist messages of her own on social media, calling Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) “third world” and “tards.” Witzke has also more or less endorsed the idea of Trump becoming a lifelong king of the United States, and said she believes that the earth is flat.

In August 2017 Witzke was arrested in Tennessee on a series of charges. The newspaper noted that a woman named Lauren Witzke had been arrested on violating both heroin and methamphetamine laws, charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest, and introduction of contraband into a penal facility

The window to change enough minds to narrow the polls is shrinking fast. Most absentee ballots have gone out and started either being mailed back or shoved in ballot drop-off boxes. And numerous states start early-voting as soon as this week (VA starts tomorrow). The idea that Donny is gonna be able to get 100% of the late-breaking voters is foolhardy.

At the same time, the more desperate the measures, the more obvious they’ll end up becoming. Based upon current projections, Trump would not only need to run the table (pick up every “toss-up” state) but he’d also have to flip one or more states viewed as “leans Dem.” If he loses even one “toss-up,” then it’s over for him and the question at that point becomes how big an EC win Biden will walk away with.

There’s not a lot of legal options available to him that we haven’t seen past campaigns try to employ in order to skull-fuck democracy.

Plus, if he wants to challenge vote counts, he has to challenge states or individual precincts. If claims about the campaign’s lack-of-funds are true, they don’t have the money to mount those challenges in the first place.

Local issue on that: In the 2014 village board election, the gun shop owner lost reëlection here in a tie vote. In Nebraska, close votes within a couple of percentage points are subject to automatic recounts, and that recount remained a tie. (My own reëlection bid in 2018 went to an automatic recount as well from my four-vote loss.)

He asked me to research the law regarding mounting a candidate recount bid. It turns out that you have to put up a bond based on the size of the area you want recounted in Nebraska: for a village the size of ours, the bond is $5,000.

If the recount goes your way, the money is returned. If it fails to flip the election, the $5,000 goes to the county.

He decided against the recount, since at the time village trustee was an unpaid position, and went with the state law regarding ties instead (settle by lot, which he lost in a card cut).

Trump’s campaign would have to put up bonds in every jurisdiction he wanted to recount, and have people on the ground willing to do all the work to get that set up.

As far as recounts, when Dr. Jill Stein called for funding to recount three states, that was millions of dollars (which we still haven’t seen returned yet since those recounts didn’t happen).

I don’t think Trump has the money to mount all the recounts he would want to do if he loses the election, and considering all the grifting he’s done from the RNC, they might not have it either. They’ll go on about stolen elections and such, but they can’t prove it.

Ugh. Regional news

A former Torrington Police Officer accused of sexual assault is seeking to suppress evidence in the case.

Attorney for Anthony John Scoleri, filed a motion on Aug. 5, to suppress evidence based on the State of Wyoming not providing evidence during discovery.

Scoleri, a former Torrington [Wyo.] Police Department (TPD) officer, has been charged with five felony counts: One count of first-degree sexual assault, three counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree, and one count of incest.

(more)

Former Torrington officer seeks to have evidence suppressed before trial (goes to the Scottsbluff, Nebr. Star-Herald. Torrington is in the coverage area of our regional newspaper)

The argument is on constitutional grounds: The defendant’s lawyer argues the warrant issued by Wyoming described the place to be searched, but not the items to be seized, thus violating his client’s rights.

Our state secretary-of-state announced some time ago that cities with polling stations would all receive ballot applications due to the ongoing epidemic, meaning everyone in Nebraska can vote by mail. (Nebraska has no-excuse requests for absentee or mail ballots in areas with polling stations; counties which went to all-mail voting noted dramatic turnouts—mine was over 80% in the last election.)

Why don’t Republicans talk about the criminality in the states they run? Torrington seems to be a hotbed of crime for a city of 6,500.

A Torrington man agreed to a plea agreement in a case in which he is accused of kidnapping.

Nathan Johnson pleaded no contest Monday morning, Aug. 31, before Judge Patrick Korell in Goshen County District Court.

Johnson, who was charged with felony domestic assault and kidnapping, agreed to a plea agreement with the State of Wyoming, who was being represented via video Assistant Goshen County Attorney Jeremiah Sandberg.

Per the agreement, if Johnson pleads no contest, he will receive a split-sentence in the Goshen County Detention Center with probation after that, have the charge of kidnapping dropped, and agree to treatment.

Some people have a plan for getting ballots out to the voters and getting them back. This is from Adrian Fontes, Maricopa County Recorder. The county has 4.5 million people in it and is larger than four states (NJ, DE, RI, CT). I got this email from Fontes last night. Note the detail of the plans, including “hey this is when you need to mail your ballot” and “we have drop off places” and “we will have lots of staffed locations for early voting.”

November Election Plans

ANNOUNCEMENT ️ : This week I was proud to approve the Early Voting Plan for the November General Election. Today the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved the Election Day and Emergency Voting Plan. I am proud to work alongside members of the Board, our elections administrators, and staff and partners in sectors outside and throughout government to serve our voters this election.

Accessibility in elections during the time of COVID-19 is incredibly important. Close to 78 percent of Maricopa County’s 2.5 million registered voters have already requested a ballot in the mail. It is a popular choice among Maricopa County voters. Voting by mail is secure, verifiable and transparent. Voters can check their voter registration and track their ballot every step of the way on their personalized voter dashboard at BeBallotReady.Vote and with direct text or email alerts.

Voters have the option of returning their ballot by mail by October 27 or drop off their early ballot at any Vote Center or ballot drop box before 7 p.m. on Election Day. New for the November General Election, the Maricopa County Elections Department is introducing drive through drop boxes in the parking lots of sport stadiums across the county.

While voting by mail is a convenient choice, in-person voting remains a vital part of our elections. I’m opening more early in person voting locations earlier, including evenings and on the weekends. Voters can expect 50-60 sites open for almost two weeks and 90 for one week before Election Day. We’ll have Vote Centers open Oct. 7-Nov. 3. Early ballots can be dropped off at any of these in-person early voting locations.

We’ve made sure these voting locations are located across the county, including on tribal land and rural areas. Vote Centers will be located in large retail facilities that allow for physical distancing. We also have a health and safety plan to maintain these centers. Voters will also be offered gloves and masks upon arrival.

Prioritizing bi-partisan efforts is critical to the success of our plan to ensure every eligible voter has options to cast their ballot. Maricopa County is setting a model for the rest of the country with elections built on access, safety and security. We take our responsibility to Maricopa County voters seriously and appreciate the opportunity to serve.

For years, Republican Helen Purcell had been county recorder and in charge of voting. But she completely screwed up the presidential preference primary in March 2016 with so few locations to vote and so many long lines. Fontes jumped into the race after the fuck up and won that November. Some Rs lost their shit when Fontes suggested sending out ballots to everyone, and he was smacked down, but he’s still moving forward nonetheless.

People have no idea what a convenience a mail-in or drop-off ballot is. Nobody, and I do mean nobody, wants to hear me shouting at my mother about the next office on the ballot. Because that is what it takes to help my mother vote these days.

On the wingnut Senate candidate in Delaware:

She also claims that she used to be a “low level drug runner” for the Mexican cartels, She claims that Trump’s win inspired her get off drugs and become a Republican “political operative.” Think about it, though, Mexican drug runner and Republican political operative aren’t that far apart and require the same skill set. I mean, in both you force people to take things that will actually kill them but they thank you for doing it.

He might be looking for a payout from CNN to make this go away. Then he gets to claim they settled so they must be guilty.

I hope CNN takes his bogus suit, crams it in a cheese grater, then crams the cheese grater in an uncomfortable place for Mr. Dershowitz.

Uhm, wasn’t Dersh somewhat involved with *Epstein*? And there are allegations that girls were procured for him as well? I don’t think I dreamed that.

I’m pretty sure he confessed to “getting massages” from someone in Epstein’s stable of trafficed women. One of the underaged girls accused Dersh outright of having sex with her.

There was something about underwear (hence the Professor Underpants hashtag noted above) but I don’t recall exactly what (maybe he got messages but that’s all and he never took off his underwear).

Dersh is a creeper.

Dershowitz is one of the libertarians who believes age-of-consent laws are unconstitutional. Back in 2005 he defended Jeffery Epstein against a charge of statutory rape, resulting in a sentence of 13 months in county jail, most of it on work-release to his own office.

Most of the money is expected to go toward the new pro-Trump super PAC, Preserve America, these people added. Other organizations, including the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee and groups helping Republicans in Congress, could also see some of Adelson’s money.

One of the people noted that Adelson’s team has recently been in touch with GOP officials close to Trump about where best to deploy the cash. Another person noted that Adelson was a major donor who helped get Preserve America up and running. The people declined to be named as these efforts are private.

I stand by the constitutional (not moral) argument I offered in my controversial oped: if a 16 year old has the constitutional right to have an abortion without state or parental interference, how could she not have the constitutional right to engage in consensual sex? 1/

So he is abandoning morality for an abstract Constitutional argument…to defend a serial child molester.

Impregnating a teenage girl as an adult is a clear case of statutory rape, but one does not have to be over 18 to get another teenager pregnant.

All accused people have the right to counsel; Epstein was no different. The thing is that Dersh wasn’t just making an argument a lawyer might make to defend his client, he believes Epstein was unconstitutionally convicted.

In terms of cases per 1 million, NY now ranks 9th (a per capita measure). Louisiana is now tops, followed by FL, MS, AZ, AL, GA, SC, and TN. Texas is just behind NY.

NY is the first solid blue state on that list. And all these other states had a chance to stop the spread and avoid the deaths had they followed masking/social distancing protocols from the get go.

Meanwhile, if you look by per capita death, NJ leads the way, with 1,821 deaths per 1 million. NY, MA, CT, LA, RI, MS, DC, AZ, and MI round out the top 10. Many of those were in the early hit of covid and were learning how to address the crisis all while Trump was sabotaging efforts and lying his ass off.

Meanwhile, other states that had a chance to learn the lessons are still seeing cases climb. 75% of the deaths occurring now are in what you can call Red states. That’s no accident. It’s on purpose. They ignore the masking/social distancing protocols, and Trump politicized both and continues to do so.

NY is now averaging around 1,000 new cases a day (and has been bouncing around that since June), though I expect that number to rise as in person schooling and dine-in restaurants reopen.

Texas is seeing 7-day moving average of nearly 4,000 a day. Florida is around 2,700 on the moving average.

The Omaha Public Schools have announced dates for getting students back inside classrooms for the first time since March.

The district also said in an email that it will be conducting regular COVID-19 testing of all staff.

Last week, Superintendent Cheryl Logan said the goal is to get students in school by the start of the second quarter, which starts Oct. 19. On Wednesday, the district sent a letter home elaborating on those plans.

He’s been accused by more than 2 dozen women, including E Jean Caroll, who’s suing him for defamation (and Trump got the DOJ to pick up the case claiming that it was in his official duties). Trump’s not only been accused by more 2 dozen credible women, but Trump’s corroborated what they accused by and through his Access Hollywood video where he admits to being a sex predator.

There’s also the evidence of him going into dressing rooms to creep on the women participating in his pageants while they were in states of undress.

Interesting state endorsement.

State senator Kate Bolz (D-District 29) is leaving the Unicameral due to term limits, and is running against Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE1).

The Democratic candidate for the Unicameral seat is Eliot Bostar (currently executive director of Nebraska Conservation Voters). He received an endorsement from Lisa Lee (Republican candidate for the seat who lost the primary).

Strictly, state legislative seats are non-partisan, so for the Unicameral the primary is a jungle primary. Top two go on to the General Election. Mr. Bostar’s opponent is Jacob Campbell, a Republican.

Trump Brags He’s Shot in the ‘Low 70s, Quite a Bit’ at Famed Winged Foot Golf Course, a Score Good Enough to Contend in This Week’s US Open (Mediaite)

(Includes clip from Fox Sports Radio)

President Donald Trump is a member at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York, where the U.S. Open is being contested this week. It’s a notoriously tough layout — but Trump is claiming he routinely scores well enough that he probably should have entered the tournament.

Appearing on Fox Sports Radio Thursday morning, the president was asked by host Clay Travis what his best score has been on the supremely difficult track.

“Low 70s, quite a bit,” Trump replied. “I’ve been a member there a long time. I could do pretty well.”

I mean we all already know he’s a major league asshole, but…

Trump likes to ‘punish’ blue states, according to insiders. Even when they’re burning

While Trump’s most recent invocations of “forest management” as a cause of the wildfires appeared to be an attempt to downplay the role played by climate change, one former White House official said his forestry fixation is, was, and has always been a way for him to attempt to assign responsibility for the fires to California’s Democratic-dominated state government.

“He doesn’t care one bit about managing forests — or much of anything for that matter — unless he can spin it as a failure of governance under the Democratic Party,” said the official.

Another former Trump administration official, ex-Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff Miles Taylor, said Trump’s disdain for the state with the largest economy in the US extended not just to the elected officials in charge, but to the people who vote for them.

Taylor, who has previously stated that Trump expressed a desire to cut off funding for disaster relief to California after a string of wildfires that devastated the state in 2018, said in an interview that the President specifically ordered a halt to individual assistance for Californians who’d been displaced from their homes or otherwise affected by the disaster.

“He didn’t want the people in California to get the money, because he basically said he didn’t think that they deserved it,” said Taylor, who added that after then-DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen explained the people in question were victims of natural disasters, Trump began ranting about how badly he’d been treated by former California Governor Jerry Brown and his successor.

“He talked about how terrible Jerry Brown was as governor, how bad Jerry Brown’s been for him, that Jerry Brown hasn’t supported him politically, and then Gavin Newsom,” he said.

Taylor said that Trump was particularly upset by Newsom’s first State of the State address.

“Trump said: ‘Did you see that f**king thing? It was a disaster. And this guy is against me on everything. And there’s no way I’m gonna support California, there’s just no way… If they don’t support me, I’m not gonna support them,’” Taylor explained. “It was a very clear political statement of him saying that if the past two governors aren’t supporting me, and the people of California don’t like me politically… do not provide money, don’t provide disaster relief.”

And though Trump has by now signed declarations to assist victims of wildfires in Oregon and Washington as well as California, Taylor said Trump has often had little interest in providing federal assistance to those Americans he deems insufficiently supportive of him politically, and would often complain about the leadership of a given state when asked to sign disaster declarations.

“It happened enough times that the leadership of DHS and DEMA would be worried about the President politicizing it when where was a disaster in a blue state,” he said.

Bulkshit on a stick. Even 10-20 years ago, you could see that Trump’s form was nowhere near good enough to get in the 70s at Winged Foot or any other PGA tour course. He’s lying - and we know he lies. He lies about absolutely everything.

But his golfing lies aren’t what bothers me today.

It’s the 201,000+ dead Americans due to his covid19 lies. He just keeps lying and misinforming the masses, adding to the body count. His COS Meadows is lying. He’s lying about having a health care plan (he doesn’t). It’s all vaporware and malware all the time. It’s a firehose of bulkshit.

Trump likes to ‘punish’ blue states, according to insiders. Even when they’re burning

While Trump’s most recent invocations of “forest management” as a cause of the wildfires appeared to be an attempt to downplay the role played by climate change, one former White House official said his forestry fixation is, was, and has always been a way for him to attempt to assign responsibility for the fires to California’s Democratic-dominated state government.

“He doesn’t care one bit about managing forests — or much of anything for that matter — unless he can spin it as a failure of governance under the Democratic Party,” said the official.

Another former Trump administration official, ex-Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff Miles Taylor, said Trump’s disdain for the state with the largest economy in the US extended not just to the elected officials in charge, but to the people who vote for them.

Taylor, who has previously stated that Trump expressed a desire to cut off funding for disaster relief to California after a string of wildfires that devastated the state in 2018, said in an interview that the President specifically ordered a halt to individual assistance for Californians who’d been displaced from their homes or otherwise affected by the disaster.

“He didn’t want the people in California to get the money, because he basically said he didn’t think that they deserved it,” said Taylor, who added that after then-DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen explained the people in question were victims of natural disasters, Trump began ranting about how badly he’d been treated by former California Governor Jerry Brown and his successor.

“He talked about how terrible Jerry Brown was as governor, how bad Jerry Brown’s been for him, that Jerry Brown hasn’t supported him politically, and then Gavin Newsom,” he said.

Taylor said that Trump was particularly upset by Newsom’s first State of the State address.

“Trump said: ‘Did you see that f**king thing? It was a disaster. And this guy is against me on everything. And there’s no way I’m gonna support California, there’s just no way… If they don’t support me, I’m not gonna support them,’” Taylor explained. “It was a very clear political statement of him saying that if the past two governors aren’t supporting me, and the people of California don’t like me politically… do not provide money, don’t provide disaster relief.”

In AL you download an application and mail it with photocopy ID under 1st class postage. Then they send you a ballot, security envelope, and outer envelope that you sign and get 2 witnesses or a notary to sign, then mail it back under 3X 1st class stamps. Oddly, the Jim Crow poll tax was also $2.00, IIRC.

Nearly two-thirds of US young adults unaware 6m Jews killed in the Holocaust

Almost two-thirds of young American adults do not know that 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, and more than one in 10 believe Jews caused the Holocaust, a new survey has found, revealing shocking levels of ignorance about the greatest crime of the 20th century.

According to the study of millennial and Gen Z adults aged between 18 and 39, almost half (48%) could not name a single concentration camp or ghetto established during the second world war.

Almost a quarter of respondents (23%) said they believed the Holocaust was a myth, or had been exaggerated, or they weren’t sure. One in eight (12%) said they had definitely not heard, or didn’t think they had heard, about the Holocaust.

[…]

Nationally, 63% of respondents did not know 6 million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust, and more than one in three (36%) thought 2 million or fewer had been killed.

Eleven per cent of respondents across the US believed that Jews had caused the Holocaust, with the proportion in New York state at 19%, followed by 16% in Louisiana, Tennessee and Montana, and 15% in Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, Nevada and New Mexico.

This is…..distressing.

re: #314 sagehen

And that North Carolina congressional race; it was a Republican doing ballot harvesting (election fraud, not voter fraud. The voters did nothing wrong). They ended up having to redo the race.

Has anyone considered the possibility that Barr and his cronies will develop a scheme to take advantage of vote-by-mail in key states to steal the election? The more they talk about this, the more I am certain that they could have a sophisticated plan in place to steal ballots, mark them, and then submit them.

re: #312 Shiplord Kirel: Fan of USPS, Goodyear, and Oreo

Accusing one’s enemies of desperation is a familiar trope in modern rhetoric. Too bad, because the accelerating craziness we see from Barr looks like the real thing: The guy is terrified of Cheeto losing. This is way beyond hoping for more grift, or the chance to create a fascist regime. I think he is looking at hard time when the facts come out.

If you look at the real world logistics of murdering Epstein and faking his suicide, it is just this side of impossible, but the AG just might be the one person who could pull it off. Among other things, it would require access to sensitive personnel information (to determine which guards might be corruptible) and even more sensitive information on prison routines, shift changes, and security precautions. It would likely also require good political connections to find a donor who could be relied on to provide the cash for bribes, no questions asked.

The NFL has been charging the Defense Dept. for years to “honor” veterans at games. But last night I got to thinking about something. Once or twice a season at Texans’ games (I shoot all the home games), a home builder (I think KB Home) gives away a new house to a veteran. I started wondering if they actually gave it away considering a builder’s margin is around 12%. So far I can’t find anything. I got to thinking that there is just no way they give them away. A veteran could just turn right around and sell it tomorrow and make a 100% profit. My thinking is that they let them live in one, but then the veteran would have to count the average rental price as income. He/she would also probably pay the property taxes and insurance as well as maintenance. And if they moved out, they’d have to give the keys back. Any help with this is appreciated.

Private Neglect, Judd Legum and Tesnim Zekeria

Deep dive into LaSalle Corrections, a private prison company that added immigrant detention to its remit, and is where the alleged hysterectomies occurred. Nasty, nasty piece of work, even if that is not true.

Immigrant detention as a new profit center

LaSalle Corrections was founded by Billy McConnell, who initially “began cutting deals to build and operate jails in rural towns across the South.” But as states slashed their prison populations to save money, McConnell viewed the election of Trump, and his hard-line stances on immigrantion, as a business opportunity. McConnell’s facilities “now hold more than 7,000 immigration detainees.”

Meanwhile, LaSalle Corrections continues to deepen its ties with ICE. A year ago, Scott Sutterfield left his role as acting director of ICE’s New Orleans field office to become an executive at LaSalle Corrections. At the time, “Sutterfield denied any impropriety in the move, arguing that he was not involved in policy setting at his previous job, which focused on overseeing the immigration deportation process and ensuring detention facilities in the region were in compliance with federal requirements,” wrote USA Today.

Yet, a former ICE official told Mother Jones that it was Sutterfield “who suggested to ICE leadership that it consider using some of the LaSalle facilities.” Now a spokesperson for LaSalle Corrections, Sutterfield recently accused Wooten and Project South of pushing “long-held political objectives.”

McConnell is unapologetic about his work in immigrant detention. “What somebody else thinks about Billy McConnell compared with what God thinks of Billy McConnell is almost irrelevant,” he told USA Today, “We don’t arrest ‘em. We don’t try ‘em. I know what the laws on the books say, and I’m a guy who goes by the rules.”

Isn’t that just food for Yvette? You don’t name food (trust me, I brought Larry and Lucinda Lobster home from Boston one time… Cooking them stressed me out).

It’s 4 feet deep in spots
And we built fish caves and tunnels.
A fighting chance in our microcosm of mutual of omaha
Everyone can be predator or food

re: #371 Kamrade Teddy’s Person

DeJoy was installed to make sure ballot mailing times are as long as possible.

Did I mention, I hate this timeline. Pandemic, fire and smoke. Next up, raining frogs.

As long as we skip over the boils

re: #351 I Would Prefer Not To

My Ex GF son who came back from college now has Covid-19. 4 out of 6 people in his dorm suite have tested positive. This is in NY where the infection rate is fairly low.

Going back to school is not such a good idea.

I think the playing college football is going to kill a few students.

FT

Is it NYU? The assholes have been throwing raves in Washington Square Park; no social distancing, very few masks.

re: #345 lawhawk

Trump is the symptom of the moral/ethical rot of the entire right wing and GOP. Barr is a manifestation of the fascist tendencies of the GOP to impose an authoritarian despot to impose their Christian American doctrine on everyone else.

To these people America is not a nation. To them America is a faith.

One that leaves rich, white men on top and every one else living in fear.

I’m sure they’ll be surprised by their reward when they actually do meet Jesus.
