Former NSC Staffer Rich Higgins Memo | Frankfurt School | Hate Speech
The recent turn of events give rise to the observation that the defense of President Trump is the defense of America. In the same way President Lincoln was surrounded by political opposition both inside and outside of his wire, in both overt and covert forms, so too is President Trump. Had Lincoln failed, so too would have the Republic. The administration has been maneuvered into a constant back-pedal by relentless political warfare attacks structured to force him to assume a reactive posture that assures inadequate responses. The president can either drive or be driven by events; it’s time for him to drive them.

The Problem of Securing Our Elections Has Been Solved. Now Will the Politicians Do It? | Soapboxie
Preserving and posting the ballot images, where they are available, solves a number of problems all at once. Election authorities rightly cannot allow just anyone to paw through the paper ballots, and so state laws for hand recounts are strict and usually require a court order. Courts in turn have shown themselves loath to grant them. In most states, automatic recounts are not triggered unless a candidate loses by less than one-half of one percent, an overly restrictive and arbitrary hurdle. Indeed, it has been asked, what is the point of using paper ballots if no one is ever allowed to see them?

But digital ballot images cannot get coffee spilled on them, or get lost by improper handling. Citizens can verify the results of precinct machine counts to their heart's content, in case the Russians, as we are told, are at it again.

The question is do politicians really want to secure our elections, or merely look like they are "doing something?"

There are other reforms which are necessary in order to truly protect every citizen's right to vote, and as importantly, to have that vote properly counted.

The trend toward mail-in ballots is viewed warily by election integrity experts. Nothing cries for mischief like stacks of marked ballots sitting in offices weeks before an actual election. Voter suppression must be halted by mandating a minimum number of voting stations per thousand registered voters, to eliminate long lines often seen in poorer inner city neighborhoods. Voter registration systems must be secured to eliminate the kind of registration hacking we saw in numerous 2016 Democratic presidential primaries, such as New York and Arizona.

> This has led many researchers to conclude that the agreement with specific conspiracy theories is not so much dependent on the specific topic, but is rather the manifestation of a more general worldview. The ‘conspiracist ideation’, ‘monological belief system’ or ‘conspiracy mentality’ can be thought of as the general extent to which people see the world as governed by hidden, sinister forces.

> The rationale behind this is that lacking control increases the need to engage in the compensatory illusion of control – that is, in conspiracy theories. Detecting patterns where there are, in fact, none at least leaves open the possibility of gaining control, whereas the attribution of, say, a natural disaster to unchangeable and uncontrollable weather dynamics does not.

I wonder if this is why weather and economic entropy always seem to be central to certain conspiracy theories.

The Kremlin's Man: The Mysterious Deaths and Arrests of High-Level Russian Officials (Part 3 of 5) :: Politics :: Features :: Donald Trump :: Paste
Andrey Malanin

Not much is known about the death of the head of the head of the consular department at Russia's embassy in Greece. Malanin was found dead on the bedroom floor of his Russian embassy-owned apartment on January 9th. Police said that the door was locked from the inside, that there had been no signs of a break-in, and no foul play was initially suspected as the police official said “at first sight, we are talking about natural causes.” There is nothing obviously suspicious about this one, save for the fact that other deaths of similarly high-ranking officials were also due to “natural causes,” and there has been enough contradiction surrounding those circumstances to cast doubt on any related claims.
