Wut? Are these people for real? This is how stupid the GOP thinks you are Trump voters. Are they right?

Once again, Trump is willing to sacrifice lives (even his own supporters) to prop up his campaign and fragile ego. If you still support him, you are part of a death cult. Google Jim Jones.

Quote:
Jonathan Lemire @JonLemire

In his first indoor rally since Tulsa, which led to a COVID-19 spike, Trump last night told a Nevada crowd - packed together, very few in masks - that the nation was “rounding the corner” on the pandemic.

The virus is still killing 1,000 Americans a day


In defiance of Nevada governor, Trump holds indoor rally

Quote:
Eager to project a sense of normalcy in imagery, Trump soaked up the raucous cheers inside a warehouse. Relatively few in the crowd wore masks, with one clear exception: Those in the stands directly behind Trump, whose images would end up on TV, were mandated to wear face coverings.

Not since a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that was blamed for a surge of coronavirus infections has he gathered supporters indoors. There was no early mention from the president that the pandemic had killed nearly 200,000 Americans and was still claiming 1,000 lives a day.


The campaign handed out masks to the people seated behind him, but they didn't bother to put them on until the cameras rolled. What else can you call this but a death cult?

So Glenn Greenwald wasn't interested in Reality Winner's information because it didn't fit his "lol russia hoax" agenda and had it passed on to a reporter who outed her to the NSA and then left The Intercept...to become a PR flack for the NYPD.

‘Like an Experimental Concentration Camp’: Whistleblower Complaint Alleges Mass Hysterectomies at ICE Detention Center
Quote:
Several legal advocacy groups on Monday filed a whistleblower complaint on behalf of a nurse at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center documenting “jarring medical neglect” within the facility, including a refusal to test detainees for the novel coronavirus and an exorbitant rate of hysterectomies being performed on immigrant women.

This hasn't been corroborated yet, but this would be ethnic cleansing and further crimes against humanity.

Lost in the shuffle of yesterday's Trump news cycle --

This is Nazi concentration camp and crimes against humanity with trials in the Hague level stuff:

Staggering Number of Hysterectomies Happening at ICE Facility, Whistleblower Says

Quote:
A whistleblower complaint filed Monday by several legal advocacy groups accuses a detention center of performing a staggering number of hysterectomies on immigrant women, as well as failing to follow procedures meant to keep both detainees and employees safe from the coronavirus.

The complaint, filed on behalf of several detained immigrants and a nurse named Dawn Wooten, details several accounts of recent “jarring medical neglect” at the Irwin County Detention Center in Ocilla, Georgia, which is run by the private prison company LaSalle South Corrections and houses people incarcerated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). In interviews with Project South, a Georgia nonprofit, multiple women said that hysterectomies were stunningly frequent among immigrants detained at the facility.

“When I met all these women who had had surgeries, I thought this was like an experimental concentration camp,” said one woman, who said she’d met five women who’d had hysterectomies after being detained between October and December 2019. The woman said that immigrants at Irwin are often sent to see one particular gynecologist outside of the facility. “It was like they’re experimenting with their bodies.”

In one case, Wooten said, a woman who ended up with a hysterectomy was not properly anesthetized and overhead the doctor say that he’d taken out the wrong ovary. That woman had to go back and get her other ovary removed as well, Wooten said.

“We’ve questioned among ourselves, like, goodness, he’s taking everybody’s stuff out,” said Wooten, who was a full-time employee at Irwin until July. “That’s his specialty, he’s the uterus collector. I know that’s ugly.”

“Is he collecting these things or something,” she continued. “Everybody he sees, he’s taking all their uteruses out or he’s taken their tubes out. What in the world.”


Quote:
While ICE reported in August that 41 immigrants at Irwin have tested positive for COVID-19, Wooten believes that the true number may be much higher, according to the complaint. Women housed in multiple units in the facility allegedly exhibited COVID-19 symptoms, but were not tested for the virus for weeks. Immigrants have also allegedly continued to be transferred in and out of the facility, against guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and the advice of Irwin’s own medical director.


People need to go to jail for this.

Hey Trump supporters -- is this just another "oh, well, whatever, at least he hates black and brown people and my 401k is doing okay?"

Crazy amount of disinformation plaguing Florida right now targeting Latino voters here.

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/14/florida-latinos-disinformation-413923


I have zero confidence Biden will win this state, so I hope he can win Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona and Pennsylvania. I remember 2018 Gillum lead almost every poll, many outside the margin of error and still lost to DeathSantis.

Justice Department subpoenas publisher of John Bolton’s tell-all book about Trump, reports say

LINK


KEY POINTS

Quote:


**The Department of Justice has opened a criminal inquiry related to the publication of former national security advisor John Bolton’s highly critical tell-all book about his time working for President Donald Trump, multiple outlets reported.

**The Justice Department convened a grand jury and has subpoenaed publisher Simon & Schuster for documents as it investigates whether Bolton, author of “The Room Where it Happened,” mishandled classified information, the reports said.

**The DOJ has also reportedly subpoenaed Javelin, Bolton’s literary agency, for documents.

That's not giving Latinos credit for having common sense. I ask Latinos in the forum to chime in.

Scientific American Endorses Joe Biden. We’ve never backed a presidential candidate in our 175-year history—until now

Quote:
Scientific American has never endorsed a presidential candidate in its 175-year history. This year we are compelled to do so. We do not do this lightly.

The evidence and the science show that Donald Trump has badly damaged the U.S. and its people—because he rejects evidence and science. The most devastating example is his dishonest and inept response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which cost more than 190,000 Americans their lives by the middle of September. He has also attacked environmental protections, medical care, and the researchers and public science agencies that help this country prepare for its greatest challenges. That is why we urge you to vote for Joe Biden, who is offering fact-based plans to protect our health, our economy and the environment. These and other proposals he has put forth can set the country back on course for a safer, more prosperous and more equitable future.

I tell my aunt, quite often, not to get her news only from social media (or people on social media). I recommend that she get it from over-the-air TV, since she does not have cable: Telemundo, Univision, Azteca...whatever. She is a Spanish speaker, as is my mom, but my mom does not use social media, so she's not duped into believing all the crap that's on Facebook (and such).

People who are stupid enough to only get their news from (anti-)social media, well, they deserve what they get. Same goes for those who only get their news from Fox and the like.

Lincoln Project ramps up Latino outreach

Quote:
The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump GOP group pouring millions into the presidential election, is beefing up its Hispanic outreach in swing states.

“The Hispanic community has grown tired of the President’s mistreatment, rhetoric and lies, particularly when it comes to Latinos,” Mike Madrid, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said in a statement announcing the organization’s Hispanic Steering Committee.

Latinos make up a significant portion of the population in several key swing states. A recent poll by Equis Research showed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leading among Latinos in Arizona, Florida and Nevada, though President Trump has made inroads with a certain share of Latinos.

“We expect Hispanic communities in Florida, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and beyond will make their voices heard this year and be a deciding factor in making Trump a one-term President and replacing him with leadership that values equity, equality, and the beautiful diversity of this country,” Madrid said.


Quote:
The Lincoln Project is also teaming up with groups such as Mi Familia Vota and the League of United Latin American Citizens, the group told Newsweek.

They’re working with those groups to create digital ads targeting Latinos, such as one released on Tuesday that highlights positive things past presidents have said about the Latino community.

“This man is not like the presidents we knew and trusted,” the ad says, showing images and footage of Trump. “This man is not making America great again, especially not for Latinos.”
