    He did not technically encourage anyone to vote twice, only to check if their vote was counted and if not, to vote in a way that will be counted.
    Stop researching what he actually said and just read headlines, dammit.

    According to reports, a federal fugitive task force moved in to make an arrest and killed Reinoehl when serving the warrant in Lacy Washington, after an encounter with Reinoehl.

    What if I did both and still came to the same conclusion? Should I wait for Mojo to come give me the facts?

    "Let them send it in and let them go vote," he told North Carolina broadcaster WECT-TV on Wednesday.

    "And if the system is as good as they say it is then obviously they won't be able to vote (in person)."

    Sure sounds like he's telling people to try to vote twice to me.

    I mean obviously his lawyer would say he only told people to try to vote in person, so there's that.

    p.s. federal fugitive task force is run by US gov't. The word 'federal' is the hint there.

I don't know how much the police are affected by state politics, but if there's any influence, it will likely be a left lean in these two states. So the idea the police are executing a left-wing guy for shooting a right winger seems a little far fetched. A rogue cop, maybe, but unlikely to be a planned assassination.

    Also, he's white, so he doesn't matter.
    I don't know how you could say he fled when he gave an interview confessing to the killing. He also apparently has kids and was fundraising for his legal defense. I've already said this dude comes across as paranoid, and there's no clear video of the incident. I'm not coming out in his defense, but the circumstances of his death are highly suspicious.

    Well I'd assume he probably fled not from law enforcement, but from the lynch mob. But he might also have been hoping to evade the police, at least for some time, and it's definitely not out of the question that when confronted by police, he panicked.

    I agree with you that his death is suspicious, but I can't imagine the police were ordered to execute him. If they were, then we might as well just assume the cops are being ordered to kill black people for the sole reason of escalating racial tensions.

    Does it require an order when the precedent is clear?

    If you kill a black person, nothing will happen to you. You keep your job, you don't go to jail, your family is fine.

    I had friends who were arrested for vandalism. It was in the winter after a heavy snow. The cops were pissed they had to walk through the snow, so they packed snow into my handcuffed friends' clothes, then opened the windows for the ride to transport them to the station. No one ordered them to do this. They are people in a position of power and have very few effective checks on any vindictive urges they may have.

    Reinoehl killed a pro-police demonstrator and was vocally anti-police. No one had to order anything. It's possible there weren't even lateral discussions among the grunts. Chris Dorner was never going to be taken in alive, and neither was Reinoehl, and that's irrespective of whether or not they intended to surrender peacefully. Of course it's possible that either or both of them resisted with a weapon, but, due to the cops' disposition, the default outcome of these guys being cornered is their death.

    I believe the story so far is that it was a privately owned former police car that some maga guy bought at an auction. However NYPD knows who it is and they did not press any charges and are "still investigating" whether or not a crime has been committed. So interesting precedent: running a red light over a crowd of people in NYC - no longer a crime!

    In fact, according to Nate Dinguss, Reinoehl was clutching a cellphone and eating a gummy worm as he walked to his car outside an apartment complex in Lacey, Wash. That’s when officers opened fire without first announcing themselves or trying to arrest him, Dinguss, a 39-year-old who lives in the apartment complex, said in a statement shared with The Washington Post.

    Currently the department is investigating itself. Unless there is pressure to reassign that investigation that's probably where it ends.

    Just an eye witness who lives in the same apartment complex. No idea why they felt the need to put his name up because he almost certainly will get targeted for this... and not just because his name is stupid.

    I love how the radical libs conveniently forget that Churchill famously calmed his people down by tellling them the Blitz was a hoax and that the Nazis would go away when the weather changed.

    What I want to know is in what way he thought people would "panic" over the corona virus that would be worse than people dying from the coronavirus. Put too many masks on? Too much distancing? Would they flee into the minefields that are modern day forests?

    How is Biden only ahead by 5% right now? Even Hillary had a bigger lead than that before Comey spilled the beans on her.

    'Cause no one wants Biden, either.

    I get that I don't understand the workings of politics, but Biden is just not energizing anyone. There's anti-Trump energy in spades, but no pro-Biden energy. He's an empty shirt.

    Harris as VP? IDK about that, either. Great to have a woman of color in a top position, but she's not exactly seen to be a presidential figure to anyone I've asked about it. They're both just kinda yawn.


    I mean... Trump is corrupt AF, but it's not like the Dems are not corrupt. They're just not on his level.

    Well it's hard to see Biden as more than two-dimensional when the cameras are always on Trump. You just can't compete with that level of crazy without having a bunch of personality disorders.

    Maybe people need to re-think their priorities. Being the leader of a country is about running the country with a steady hand, not about being someone who knows nothing about the job but is fun to watch because he's capable of doing and saying crazy shit 365 days a year.

    Sure they are, they're just more subtle about it.

    It doesn't surprise me that it's closer than people expected, and it won't surprise me if Trump wins, either. The only thing that will surprise me in this upcoming election is if the loser (whoever that is) accepts defeat gracefully.

    The left use racism as an election tactic because they know they will lose an election based purely on economic grounds. It's a strong tactic too, there are a lot of people who outright assume any Trump supporter is racist, stupid, immoral, worthy of contempt. But is it a winning tactic? I don't think so, because it doesn't cause a migration of votes, it only reinforces your own vote base. People don't like being called racist when they are not, and rather than change their opinion, they tend to double down. People are stubborn.

    I expect Trump will win, but I also think Biden is more electable than Clinton, so I could be wrong. It's close.

    If you go by Trump's popularity ratings since being elected, there's relatively few people who seem to migrate, which I attribute largely to the apparent absence of any objective media reporting whatsoever in the US. The Trumpers watch Fox and get constantly hammered with the message of how great he is, whereas the non-Trumpers watch CNN/NBC, etc.., and get constantly hammered with the opposite message. After four years of that, none of them will change their minds (with the slight caveat that Fox has occasionally started being more critical of Trump lately, though I think not enough to undo the effect of the last four years of constant cheerleading).

    I think the critical thing will be turnout and which side can get more people to go and vote and/or whether the Rs can effectively disenfranchise enough D voters.

    As for turnout, Hillary was completely uninspiring and it should be easy for Biden to outperform her caveat emptor. The problem is the pandemic and all the mail in voting shenanigans it opens the doors to, which Trump will try to exploit as much as possible.

    And wow, lol that the Ds are just as corrupt as Trump. I don't know what planet you have to live on to believe that. Even the Rs aren't as corrupt as Trump.

    I mean, I just don't know how you could put your trust in the integrity of any politician, at least enough to say "this one is more corrupt". idk about Biden, but when it comes to Trump vs Clinton, your guess is as good as mine as to which is more corrupt. I'd argue that corrupt NGOs are a little more concerning than simple conflict-of-interest business arrangements, but at the same time what the fuck do I know about either of their corruptions? I think both are highly corrupt, and so too is pretty much any politician with eyes on the top job.

    Maybe Bernie wasn't corrupt. Perhaps that's why the Dems did their best to stop him winning. To the Dems, Trump winning was preferably to Bernie. So yeah, the Dems are totally corrupt, so much so that they don't actually care about winning, they care about economics.

    I might be conflating corruption with general ill-suitedness to the job. And I'm not keen about speculating on who is more sleazy than whom when no-one is looking. But for certain, Trump is totally shameless about his corruption, which is why it keeps getting exposed. Maybe that's the only difference, dunno.

    I think Biden is actually genuine in thinking his brand of politics is the right path forward. As far as if anything he did rises to the level of corruption seems rather silly considering who he's up against.

    This is a lesser of two evils election, but it could not be more clear which one that is.

    I think a lot of people here wouldn't mind a 5-6 week coma either, or maybe a 5-6 year one. We're threatening to burn out of the EU with no deal with either them or the US, we're out of covid tests, cases were rising before that, there's talk of another national lockdown coming, and half the country is on the verge of losing their shit already.

    The only thing I'm fairly certain of is that the gov't thinks a lockdown would be a bad look for them, and so if it comes it will be too late and more people will die than had to.

    Coma me please.

    Meanwhile Trump is trying to make American education, which is already so insular and jingoistic that it teaches kids that WWII began with Pearl Harbor, somehow even more insular and jingoistic.
