A Bisexual Senator, the Death of CPR, and Fraud, Fraud, Fraud
Greetings and salutations one and all, and welcome to our USA Really daily podcast for November 14. This is the best place to be and we’ve got all the best news for you. We ruler super hard, so get ready for a joyous feast of newsy goodness. Of course, there’s still plenty on the elections for ya.
First, I want to remind you about our two chances for you to win wheelbarrows full of cash—our Global Democracy Award where we’re looking for original works on the US government’s interference in other states, and our Zuckerberg Wanted action where we’re looking for solid evidence of the government enforcing illegal censorship. In both cases, you could find yourself the happy owner of several thousands of dollars, so check both of these items out!
And with that, let’s jump into our opinion piece for the day. It’s by Seraphim Hanisch: “Midterms reveal major ideological and cultural battle lines in US.” Looking at the Democrats gains in the House, while the Republicans held onto the Senate, Hanisch writes: “This is not a blue wave, nor is it a referendum on President Trump, though the major media outlets are trying to portray it as such. What it really is, is a referendum on the success of the Mainstream news media versus the horse sense of the thinking voter. If looked at in this way, this was an enormous, and almost fatal, success for the Democrat / liberal / globalist establishment. The Democrats know this, but they have chosen to interpret their victory as license for a no-holds-barred round of new attacks against President Donald Trump and his policies.” He then takes you on a journey through several examples of the liberal media spin. It can be said that the 2018 election drew the lines very clearly. Expect the next two years’ rhetoric to be at levels that make 2016-2018 look placid.
Next up, let’s take a look at our This Day in History piece. If you’ve forgotten what you learned back in school, well, stop being a bum and go read a book! Or, just keep it here for your daily reminders of all the important events that have gone down in US history. On this day in 1910, the first plane took off from an aircraft carrier. But did Eugene Burton Ely realize that this advancement would eventually be used just to blow people to smithereens from the sky? In 1957, the Apalchin Meeting was held which was basically an international mobsters meeting. I’m surprised there’s no De Niro film about this. Check out the piece to see how it went. And in 1965, the Battle of la Drang in the Vietnam War went down, which was the first major battle between the American army and the People’s Army of Vietnam. Was Forrest Gump part of that?
And here’s something: The U.S. officially has its first bisexual Senator. Oh happy happy joy joy. What a great achievement… Rep. Kyrsten Sinema won the Arizona Senate seat being vacated by Republican Jeff Flake to become the first woman to win a U.S. Senate seat in the state. The race against Republican Rep. Martha McSally was tight enough that a winner wasn't decided until Monday, after a slow count of mail-in ballots gave her an insurmountable lead. Apparently she seems not too bad politically, despite being a Democrat. She’s willing to not be polemical and to reach across the aisle.
Next up, we’ve got the first in a new series: “Voting problems, fraud, scandals plague polling places across America,” and this one is on Alabama. Apparently the midterm elections were just an embarrassment all over the country. It’s like no one’s ever had an election before and we have no clue what we’re doing. No one was prepared. It looks like in Normal, Alabama, four A&M University students are suing state and local election officials, claiming they were denied the right to vote in the Nov. 6 general election. They’d all pre-registered, but on Election Day they were told, nope, skedaddle. And then there’re some dead people voting and all kinds of other fun stuff. Get the full scoop here.
Next up: “Glitch with the Vendor? Four CA mail-in ballots from same voter.” Four ballots from the exact same voter were recently found in Alameda County, California. Big League Politics managed to get comments from the authorities and find out how this was possible. “That would imply not that this voter is registered four different times but that somehow four identical ballots were printed for a single voter. That would suggest a glitch with the vendor,” a voting official commented. Just a minor glitch, you know… Who knows? Maybe this happened with lots of people?
And in Georgia, the people aren’t willing to just sit around waiting for all the voting problems to be addressed. Instead, they took to the Election Board office to demand some answers. Meanwhile, “The Democrats are using phone banking, emails, texts, and even a campaign-style ad to find provisional ballots that were allegedly disenfranchised, although many Georgia ballots were rejected for reasons including non-citizens voting and non-registered persons voting,” Big League Politics reports. “Make Georgia Count” goes the slogan of the Dems’ campaign, though some doubt if their intentions are that pure, surmising that they are just trying to win some court precedents that they can use in future elections.
Then there’s part 2 of “Voting problems, fraud, scandals plague polling places across America: Alaska.” There’re some neck and neck races going on there, but, as one online commenter asks, “Are the Division of Elections counting those that are at the Fairbanks Correctional Center? What about those dead people and those that are no longer resident of the city or state that are still on the Voters roll? How come the Woman League of Voters and Division of Elections don't purge the voters roll? I've been asking that same question for that past 20 years or more?”
Part 3 is on Arizona, where they don’t follow all voter-registration safeguards required by federal law—a violation that appears to date back to the early 1990s when the National Voting Registration Act (NVRA) was enacted under the Clinton administration. Many Arizonans were unable to vote in the general election because they were purged from the rolls over out-of-date addresses that stemmed from violations of federal voting laws, but state elections officials said that they had no way of knowing because there is no process to track voters affected by the routine removals.
And Part 4 is on Arkansas, where a thumb drive with over 800 votes on it was overlooked on election night. So, like, are there others? They’re saying it didn’t affect any elections, but really? Seems fishy to me. I mean, this is Clinton’s state—should we trust them down there?
And in case you need something worry about, “Acute flaccid myelitis attacks several American states causing death and panic.” As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported yesterday, on Tuesday, the number of cases of acute flaccid myelitis registered this year is now about a hundred, and the disease is now spread among 27 states. Yet, this number might easily grow, as 162 additional patients are under investigation now. Unfortunately, children are the first victims of this illness, so parents should take all measures to prevent them from getting sick. Check out the piece to find out what the heck acute flaccid myelitis is.
And if you’re into the NHL, we’ve got a breakdown for you of the 3 most impressive teams, at least in our view. These are the teams that no one was really expecting to do so hot, but now they’re all looking like they could be real contenders for a playoffs spot. And not to ruin things for ya—two of the teams are Canucks. Check it out!
We reported a few weeks ago about someone winning the Mega Millions lottery prize of $1.5 billion. BUT, that person has still not come forward. To me that seems strange—I mean I feel like I’d be all over that! But apparently it’s not so strange. The winner even has 180 days altogether to come forward, and some people take time to consult with experts and figure out how to use the money before raking it in.
And here’s a beautiful slice of feminist insanity. “Men now afraid to give women CPR in case they’re accused of sexual assault.” It’s friggin’ crazy that we live in such a world where you have to worry about something like this, but that’s the world feminists have brought us. Word on the street is that there’re laws that protect people that give CPR, but they could still fall prey to a civil lawsuit. Thank you, liberal feminists!
Next up is another USA Really special video report: 60,000! That is the approximate number of children sleeping behind bars every night in the US. It’s a national trend called the school to prison pipeline where children as young as 12 are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Check out the video to learn about Jermaine who went to prison at age 16 but is now developing programs to help the nation’s youth.
Then we’ve got two pieces on a shakeup that could be coming to a White House near you. There have been several reports recently that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who succeeded John Kelly as head of DHS when he took the Chief of Staff job, might be replaced. Right now, the only thing stopping Trump from firing Nielsen is that he doesn't have a candidate lined up to replace her. However, there’s a fantastic report now swirling that former ICE Director Tom Homan might be the lead candidate for Homeland Security Secretary. That would be an excellent spot for Homan, with all of the current border issues now weighing on the larger national security dynamic. Hopefully, this ends up being the switch-out.
And check out our second piece on the matter for more details on Nielsen and Kelly.
Alright dear ones, that’ll do it for the news, so let’s take a look at tomorrow’s opinion piece before we finish this thing for the night. It’s called “Why South Korea and Other Economic Powers Begged Washington for Sanction Waivers to Buy Iranian Oil” by Alexander Azadgan. He writes: “It is outrageous that a powerful country like South Korea, the world’s 11th largest economy, had to ask and in fact beg for a waiver to conduct business with the world’s 4th largest oil and natural gas producer, Iran… The spirit of the neo-liberal economic order was fundamentally designed and intended to avoid such unilateral bullying and economic and political mafia diplomacy, a noticeable forte of President Trump, and instead create a somewhat functioning international community of nations. Of course, this is far from reality where only 10 to 20 powerful nations get to dictate and bully others in a social Darwinistic and law of the jungle manner. This does NOT constitute a true “international community”. Far from it, it is a farce!” Well, that’s some mighty big words! Check out this piece tomorrow to see how Azadgan backs them up!
