  • Trump: New York Mail-in Voting Mess a Bad Omen for November [Compare FL2000 to NY-CD12 in Comment]

    The New Ameican ^ | 08/01/2020 | James Murphy
    On Friday, President Donald Trump pointed to the chaotic primary election in New York's 12th Congressional District as a portent of what the nation might expect should Democrats succeed in their scheme to vastly expand mail-in voting for the general election in November. Though the primary was held on June 23, a clear winner is not known due to a large number of absentee ballots that were disqualified by the state's Board of Elections.
  • Goldman warns delayed election results this November similar to Bush-Gore could rock the market

    Goldman Sachs is warning that the presidential election could see delayed results, and is therefore recommending that clients hedge their market bets through December in anticipation of heightened volatility through November. “Given the several-week delay in finalizing the results of the 2000 presidential election ... the elevated volumes of mail-in ballots used in recent primary elections, and potential for increased mail in ballots this November, we see heightened risk that election-related volatility could extend beyond Election Day,” Kostin said in a note to clients Tuesday night. Kostin said options market traders seem to believe the next president might not be...
  • Cooper Delays Much-Anticipated Announcement On Reopening NC Schools

    WFAE ^ | 06/30/20 | Ann Doss Helms
    Gov. Roy Cooper backed down Tuesday from a promise to announce a school reopening plan by July 1. Instead of the much-anticipated decision, his office sent a statement at 8:30 p.m. saying his Wednesday news conference "will not include an announcement on how statewide K-12 public schools will open this coming school year." The delay comes less than six weeks before schools are scheduled to open Aug. 17 for 1.5 million North Carolina students. Local school districts were poised to roll out plans this week. "Our basic plans are ready to go," Iredell-Statesville Schools board Chair Martin Page said Tuesday....
  • Does the Constitution allow for a delayed presidential election?

    Constitution Center ^ | 04/10/2020 | by Scott Bomboy
    As America battles the COVID-19 virus, speculation has started that a prolonged public health crisis could delay or even postpone this year’s presidential election. So how would the Constitution deal with such an unusual situation?In general, a combination of state or congressional actions could delay elections but not postpone the selection of a president and vice president. The only hard deadline spelled out in the Constitution is the end of a president’s term and a vice president’s term on January 20 of the year following a general election. (That same deadline applies regardless of term limits imposed on the president...

    Clinical trials are key to effective treatments, even if it means LONG DELAYS IN THE USE OF the MAJORITY OF PATIENTS WHO NEED THEM, said Dr. William Schaffner, medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “There are any number of drugs in the laboratory that seem to have some kind of anti-viral effect,” he said. “That’s very intriguing. But there’s a long distance between what works in the lab and what works in humans.” But some experts are pushing back against the hype, warning that none of these...

    President Donald Trump’s longtime adviser Roger Stone will be sentenced Thursday despite a request by the defense attorneys for a delay, a federal judge overseeing his case ruled Tuesday.“I think that delaying this sentence would not be a prudent thing to do under all of the circumstances,” said Judge Amy Berman Jackson in a Tuesday telephone conference with lawyers. Jackson’s decision comes after all four prosecutors in Stone’s case resigned over the Justice Department reversing their recommended prison sentence of 87 to 108 months for the GOP operative. Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday condemning both the former prosecutors and Judge...
  • Harris County to halt Ship Channel Bridge construction to correct potential design flaw

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | January 7, 2020 | Dug Begley
    The Harris County Toll Road Authority plans to take a three-week pause in construction on the new Houston Ship Channel Bridge along the Sam Houston Tollway so engineers can agree on a solution to a possible design flaw found nearly 20 months into the project. The $1 billion bridge — the costliest infrastructure project in the county’s history — was designed by the Dallas office of FIGG Bridge Group. The company, based in Florida, came under scrutiny when its Tallahassee office designed a pedestrian bridge that collapsed in February 2018 at Florida International University, killing six. FIGG and its consultants...

    01/18/2020 | Self
    Just my two cents, but I think the impeachment delay tactic was necessary to support the premise of the case - Motive, not about anything else like Pens, or fear. As we've been told by the mainstream media "narrative", Trumps actions were not about trying to get truth about the illegal doings in Ukraine and its role in the Russia hoax, but about digging up dirt on Trump's rival. Since there has been no Democrat candidate selected, two things need to happen prior to the formal impeachment hearings to begin. One, Joe Biden needs to be named the DNC candidate,...

    The European Union and Britain will struggle to seal an agreement on trade and other aspects of their future ties after Brexit next year and should consider extending the negotiations beyond 2020, a top EU official said in an interview published Friday. The U.K. is scheduled to leave the EU on Jan. 31. If it does, it will be the first time a country leaves the world’s biggest trading bloc. Negotiations between the remaining members and the British government on future trade, fisheries, education and transport relations can only begin after that date and must conclude by the end of...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set the stage Thursday for a potentially bruising fight between the leadership of the two chambers over impeachment, as he tore into Nancy Pelosi for “shoddy work” and said Democrats may be “too afraid” to send the articles to the Senate after the House speaker abruptly held off on transmitting them. “This particular House of Representatives has let its partisan rage at this particular president create a toxic new precedent that will echo well into the future,” McConnell said on the floor, accusing Democrats of giving in to "temptation" with their impeachment vote while challenging...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) surprised his colleagues and the media by announcing late Thursday night that the votes on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump would be postponed until 10:00 a.m. Friday morning. Republicans exploded in outrage. Ranking Member Doug Collins (D-GA) protested angrily that the sudden schedule change had not been discussed with the opposition. Other Republicans interjected, as Nadler gaveled the hearing closed. “Stalinist!” Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) shouted. Others said that Nadler’s move was symbolic of the arbitrary rule they had come to expect on the committee. Reporters were also stunned. “We are...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Mountain Valley Pipeline, one of the major construction projects crossing West Virginia, has extended the timetable and price for its expected completion. The pipeline’s developers announced last week that construction now isn’t expected to concluded until late next year at a cost of $5.3 to $5.5 billion because key aspects of the giant project have been challenged by federal regulators and in the court system. The original cost estimate when work began in February 2018 was $3.7 billion. The original estimated completion date was the fourth quarter of 2019 — now. The pipeline’s developers say it is...

    FBI Director Christopher Wray’s FBI is fighting like hell to keep the thousands of outstanding text messages between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page under wraps until after the 2020 election. Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has been in court this summer fighting to get their hands on 13,000 pages of Strzok-Page documents. The FBI wants over 2 years to “process” the Strzok-Page docs. The Court in late July ordered parties to negotiate a solution to getting key docs more quickly, Judicial Watch said. The FBI is protecting itself on illegal abuses. “Wray FBI wants to stall until well...

    Passengers on a United Airlines flight from Newark to Hong Kong spent 14 hours trapped in a frigid cabin as their plane sat in subzero temperatures on a Canadian tarmac — only to be returned to New Jersey just in time for more bone-chilling weather. The mercury plunged to -25 (F) at Newfoundland’s Goose Bay Airport late Saturday and winds blustered at up to 31 mph as passengers huddled in the Boeing 777-200, a door of which became stuck open on the ground after the jet made an emergency landing.

    Though a final draft of the environmental assessment report detailing the proposed Interstate 10 widening through Baton Rouge was originally scheduled to be presented at a public hearing this month, state officials now say it will likely be February before the report is complete. There’s no particular reason why consultants preparing the report are running behind, according to Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development Secretary Shawn Wilson. “It’s just that engineering is a much slower process than the public or I, for that matter, would like it to be,” he says. “They’re gathering some additional data as they try to...

    Former FBI Director James Comey is challenging a subpoena from House Republicans for his closed-door testimony in federal court. Court records show that Comey filed a motion in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Thursday to quash a subpoena from the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees for his testimony on Dec. 3. Comey has previously said that he would welcome testifying in public but would fight the subpoena for a closed-door appearance

    The Department of Justice (DOJ), FBI and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are reportedly expected to propose redactions to a series of documents related to the Russia investigation that President Trump ordered to be declassified this week. Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday that the agencies are currently doing a methodical review of the documents. There is no official timeline on when their evaluation of the sensitive documents will be finished. But the news outlet, citing sources familiar with the process, noted that the FBI and the DOJ plan on submitting their proposed redactions to the Office of the...

    The National Archives says it will take months to process the records Republicans have asked to see from Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s previous government work, throwing a curveball at the GOP, which had hoped to review the documents, hold hearings and confirm him to the Supreme Court before October. The Archives said it will take at least through October to review 1 million pages that Republicans have requested to see. And that doesn’t include the 3 million additional pages Democrats have asked for. If Congress waits for those, it could push the confirmation schedule beyond the November elections and into...
