Morning Greatness: Memory Card with Uncounted Votes Found in Georgia

Good Tuesday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president has no public events scheduled.

 

Two minutes of hate:

Thousands of ballots, 2600+ to be more precise, were “found” in Georgia yesterday. The ballots were discovered during the fake election recount taking place right now. Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Secretary of State “blamed the problem on Floyd County election officials failing to upload votes from a memory card in a ballot-scanning machine.” That’s just crazy, isn’t it?

Fox News wants you to know that “Georgia began recounting its nearly 5 million ballots by hand on Friday after President Donald Trump and the Republican Party requested a statewide audit.” But Georgia isn’t really auditing the election and it’s not recounting all the ballots. There’s no reason we don’t have a secure and trustworthy system to use for our elections unless certain interests don’t want to have a secure and trustworthy election for their own purposes. Little or no signature verification, wide-spread mailing of ballots to stale old voter lists and extended deadlines for mail in ballots to surface are just a few ridiculous features of our elections that make no sense from a security perspective.

In other news, hate crimes are an all time high, according to the latest statistics released by the FBI. “The US saw 7,314 hate crimes in 2019, up from 7,120 in 2018 — and the highest level in 12 years.” The report shows that 51 people were killed in hate crimes and 22 of those were killed by the maniac in El Paso, Texas who shot up a Walmart to target Hispanics. Hate crimes against Jews are also on the rise, no surprise there, as “officials saw a nearly 14 percent increase in attacks against Jews and Jewish institutions, the report found.” Many of those are in the New York City area but you may not have heard about it because the media didn’t cover it. Why? Well, the perpetrators in many instances were African Americans.

The number of hate crimes against African Americans dropped slightly to 1,930 from 1,943, however crimes against Hispanics rose to 527 in 2019 from 485 in 2018. 17 percent of all hate crimes were motivated by sexual orientation — a number that remained relatively stable.

CNN wants you to know that even a negative coronavirus test is not reliable if you want to spend Thanksgiving with your family.

“We know that the incubation period for Covid-19 is up to 14 days. And before that, you can be testing negative, and have no symptoms,” emergency medicine physician Dr. Leana Wen said. “But you could actually be harboring the virus and be able to transmit it to others.”

So if you do want to see your family to celebrate, “self-quarantining for 14 days beforehand is best.” I hope you are all locked up right now if you have holiday plans.
