Fraudulent Saturday

President Donald Trump’s commission to investigate possible election fraud will convene this month, a government notice said on Friday, as more U.S. states have refused to hand over at least some voter data.

Trump created the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity in May, after claiming without evidence that millions of people voted illegally for his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, in the 2016 election.

U.S. civil rights groups and Democratic lawmakers have called the panel a voter suppression tactic by Trump, a Republican who won the presidential election by securing a majority in the Electoral College tally of delegates even as he lost the popular vote to Clinton by some 3 million votes.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center, a watchdog group, has filed a lawsuit to block the commission’s data request until its privacy impact can be weighed. A hearing in the case was scheduled for Friday afternoon.

There is a wide consensus among state officials from both parties and election experts that voter fraud is rare. States rejecting the commission’s attempts to gather voter information have called it unnecessary and a violation of privacy.

    Greg Palast has been the lone investigative force, spend some time studying this Kobach creep at his site, he is not our friend but a purveyor of voter supression for rich boy ensuring puggers will be re-elected time after time while eliminating any opposing candidates.

    Why does this goon want all voter information even though the voter rolls keep increasing every day? They simply with their puny little minds want to eliminate voters. If you remeber there was a website by a GOP contractor with millions of voters information left unattended without the slightest modicum of security for who knows how long.

    We are being set up to be a Dictatorship, rich boy does admire his Dictators, pootin included.

    Beware people, you are being shined by a man that craves a dictatorship more than anything else and must be removed from office before he reaches that goal, not just humored and tolerated. The entire staff he has is as dangerous as dynamite, don’t let goofy tweets fool you.

      The states should tell him and his minion the truth of why they don’t want to give up the voting lists: that they distrust Trump’s motives because of the kind of guy he is. It’s that plain and simple.

      And I, for one, DON’T WANT HIM TO GET HIS HANDS ON MY VOTING RECORD! How DARE him!

      Yes, we all know what this is about. It is NOT about illegal votes, it’s to suppress the vote even further than they have thus far. That’s pretty clear. The states know what they’re doing. Very strange for Trump to NOT trust the states to handle something they’ve been handling for decades.

    It’s cooler here today, didn’t need to turn on the damn A/C. Our electric bill rolled in today. Good grief, $262. 😦 Lots running here. The pool filter, Bob’s oxygen machine, the dehumidifier in the basement and the A/C for several days. That bill will only get higher, of course. I’ve always yearned for solar panels on our roof. Our house faces pretty much south, but alas, they’ve always been too expensive. Oh, well…life is almost over anyway so who cares.

    A young woodchuck, or gopher, had taken up residence under out pool deck, or somewhere around here. I keep seeing him sitting on the lower pool deck, or peeping up from between that wood and the pool wall. He can stay as long as he doesn’t dig a humongous hole anywhere visible, or put up a big sand dune from a giant hole. Keep it neat, Mr. Woodchuck.

    Time for outside meandering and a beer. My favorite time of the day.

        The internet gurus say:
        According to a Cornell publication, the answer is ~700 pounds. Excerpt: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Compared to beavers, groundhogs/woodchucks are not adept at moving timber, although some will chew wood.

    TVD bridge return in but 53 minutes. I felt I was speedily moving on the return now that my feet don’t trouble me at all. Just a few birds still out in the evening. Missouri Flat Creek has almost completely disappeared under the exuberant grass.

    Day 7: 426+53=479 minutes, not bad for not trying.

      Den and Carol, maybe Jim as well — Consider putting a soaker hose or two across the top of the roof line. The pressure should be just enough to wet the roof with no drip at the eaves. During the day only. This ought to lower the AC requirements due to the evaporation.

      I, on the other hand, have lots of shade.
