  • Horry County (SC) early voters have casted three times more ballots than 2016; Pee Dee early voting also up

    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) – With the final Presidential debate before Election Day on Thursday, South Carolina has already seen record numbers of absentee ballots already cast, especially in Horry County. A pandemic, a Presidential election and a toss-up U.S. Senate race between Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Democratic candidate Jamie Harrison are the recipe for shattering 2016’s early vote records in the Palmetto State. “We’re probably, right now, on pace easily to double that,” said Drew Kurlowski, who’s an assistant professor of political science at Coastal Carolina University. “We might see upwards of actually a million early absentee or...
  • POLITICS Unlikely voters say they’ll vote in 2020. But that doesn’t mean Democrats benefit

    Miami Herald ^ | Feb 2020
    Tens of millions of people who have chosen not to vote in recent U.S. elections could be headed to the polls this November in a massive wave that would change the look and feel of the presidential contest, according to a newly published study of “chronic non-voters.” The sweeping survey of thousands of inactive voters and eligible but unregistered adults, commissioned last summer by the Miami-based John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, found that roughly half of those interviewed were “absolutely certain” they’ll vote in 2020. And given estimates that 100 million eligible adults skipped the last presidential election,...

    The immune system is usually seen as our ally in fighting disease, but in the case of coronavirus, it can sometimes turn into our foe. A phenomenon known as a cytokine storm has been implicated in many fatal cases of Covid-19, and several drugs are currently being tested to calm this storm and raise patients’ chances of survival. These drugs are known as anti-C5 drugs as they prevent a molecule named C5 from triggering the complement system to produce cytokines, which are known to cause inflammation in the body. Over-activation of cytokines (also known as a cytokine storm) has also...
  • Minnesota Democratic Senator Tina Smith and Republican Opponent Jason Lewis in Statistical Tie: Poll

    Newsweek ^ | BY AILA SLISCO ON 10/22/20 AT 9:03 PM EDT
    Senator Tina Smith (D-Minn.) is in a statistical dead heat with her GOP challenger Jason Lewis less than two weeks before Election Day, according to a new poll. A SurveyUSA poll released Wednesday shows Smith leading Lewis, a former congressman whose candidacy has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, by only 1 percent. It found that 43 percent of voters favored Smith compared to 42 percent for Lewis. Another 12 percent said they were undecided, while 3 percent said they would vote for a third party candidate. Smith's lead is well within the poll's 5 percent margin of error.

    There are 149,596 more Republicans and 95,524 fewer Democrats on the North Carolina voting rolls in 2020 when compared to 2016. But there is one other big change among registered voters: there are now 415,210 more who are unaffiliated. The North Carolina Republican Party credits the surge in their registered voters to registration events and outreach since 2017.

Young is running for State House District 23. She’s also the Democratic party chair in Rogers County, a group now working out of their new office in the heart of Main Street. "Rogers County was, the whole time I was growing up here for the last many years, it was Democratic and then it was slowly drifting towards being more Republican," Young said. Despite the Rogers County Democrats' push, Election Board...

    A federal judge ruled on Monday that Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s (D) coronavirus orders, which shut down the state, closed businesses and limited gatherings, were unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge William Stickman IV, a Trump appointee, said in his opinion that Wolf’s and Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Rachel Levine’s COVID-19 orders violated and continue to violate the First Amendment right to freedom of assembly and the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment. The efforts to stop the spread of coronavirus “were undertaken with the good intention of addressing a public health emergency,” Stickman wrote. “But even in...

    Daily Caller ^ | 10/21/2020 | Peter Hasson
    The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump political group, appears to have helped an Iranian disinformation effort go viral. Federal authorities concluded that Iran was behind a string of threatening emails targeting Democratic voters in swing states, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. The email senders claimed to be members of the Proud Boys, a fringe right-wing group. Director of National Intelligence Dan Ratcliffe confirmed the Iranian efforts during a press conference Wednesday evening. Ratcliffe told reporters that “we have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump. You may have seen some reporting...
  • US Approves $1 Billion in New Arms Sales to Taiwan

    WASHINGTON—The Trump administration has approved the sale of more than a billion dollars worth of advanced weaponry for Taiwan in a move that will enrage China and further exacerbate tensions between Washington and Beijing that have are already heated over issues such as trade, Tibet, Hong Kong, and the South China Sea. The State Department announced Wednesday it had greenlighted the sale of 135 precision land attack missiles, associated equipment, and training to Taiwan to improve its defense capabilities. The package is worth just over a billion dollars, it said in a statement. The missiles are made by Boeing. “This...

    City Journal (Manhattan Institute) ^ | October 21, 2020 | Guy Sorman
    Francis’s new encyclical reads like a UN mission statement. To celebrate the memory of Saint Francis of Assisi, to whom his pontificate is consecrated, Pope Francis has honored us with a long encyclical entitled Fratelli Tutti, or “All Brothers.” I doubt that this text will become a bestseller among the faithful, though all Catholics are urged to pay heed to such pronouncements. For those who, like me, are not Catholic, these texts are still worth analyzing as reflections of the spirit of the times and the intellectual atmosphere at the Vatican. Fratelli Tutti, unsurprisingly, confirms the pope’s solid positioning on...

    This case is not about one particular law, but the rule of law. California Assemblymen Kevin Kiley and James Gallagher are suing to stop California Governor Gavin Newsom’s “one man rule.” Kiley and Gallagher filed their most recent Trial Brief, and Gov. Gavin Newsom filed his. The trial will take place Wednesday, October 21, 2020 in Sutter County. The Michigan Supreme Court recently struck down the 1945 law that Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been using to keep the state in lockdown since April. And in September, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled that Governor Tom Wolf’s lockdown orders were unconstitutional,...
