Voter fraud suspect arrested in Des Moines

A Des Moines woman has been arrested on suspicion of voting twice this month in the general election, police and court records show.

Terri Lynn Rote, 55, was booked into the Polk County Jail about 3:40 p.m. Thursday on a first-degree election misconduct charge, which is a Class D felony.

Rote, a registered Republican, reportedly cast an early voting ballot at the Polk County Election Office, 120 Second Ave., and another ballot at a county satellite voting location in Des Moines, according to a Des Moines police report.

Rote was one of three voter fraud suspects reported to police Wednesday by the Polk County Auditor's Office.

It's the first time in 12 years that Polk County Auditor Jamie Fitzgerald can remember ever having to report potential voter fraud, he said Thursday morning.

The other two suspects are accused of casting mail-in ballots and also voting in person, according to police reports. As of Friday morning, neither of those suspects had been arrested.

North Carolina Congressman Says Charlotte Protesters “Hate White People”

US Rep. Robert Pittenger told BBC TV on Thursday that protesters in Charlotte, North Carolina, “hate white people because white people are successful and they are not.”

Pittenger, a Republican, has represented North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, which includes outer portions of Charlotte and some of the city’s northern and eastern suburbs, since 2013. His comments come after two days of violent protests in Charlotte following the officer-involved death of Keith Lamont Scott.

When asked what protesters’ grievances were on a BBC TV news program, Pittenger said: “The grievance in their minds – the animus, the anger – they hate white people because white people are successful and they’re not.”

“It is a welfare state,” he said. “We have spent trillions of dollars on welfare, and we’ve put people in bondage, so they can’t be all they’re capable of being.”

Pittenger apologized later Thursday in a statement after politicians and others took to social media to condemn the comments.

...since your boy your handler Oldsport insists on referring to President Obama as "Barry", does that count as name-calling, and if so, does that indicate that he has nothing to add to a discussion?

Obama’s soaring approval numbers are very good news for Hillary Clinton

President Obama is joined onstage by Hillary Clinton during the third day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July. (Melina Mara/The Washington Post)
The last time that President Obama's approval rating in Washington Post-ABC News polling was as high as it is in our new survey was six months after he took office. At 58 percent, Obama's approval is 15 points higher than it was on the eve of the 2014 elections, where his party got blown out. Hillary Clinton's hope is that the reversal of opinions on Obama two years later will also lead to a reversal of fortunes for other Democrats — and there's reason to think that it will.

We'll start by noting that Obama's approval rating in our survey is quite a bit higher than in other recent polls. Earlier this month, CNN-ORC had him at 51 percent. At the end of August, Fox had him at 54. But even in Gallup's weekly averages, Obama has been over 50 percent for most of this year.

Donald Trump Turns to Combative Breitbart Executive in Staff Shake-Up

Donald J. Trump has shaken up his presidential campaign for the second time in two months, hiring a top executive from the conservative website Breitbart News and promoting a senior adviser in an effort to right his faltering campaign.

Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC, will become the Republican campaign’s chief executive, and Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser and pollster for Mr. Trump and his running mate, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana, will become the campaign manager.

Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman, will retain his title. But the staffing change, hammered out on Sunday and set to be formally announced Wednesday morning, was seen by some as a demotion for Mr. Manafort.

The news, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, was confirmed early Wednesday by Ms. Conway in a brief interview, but she rejected the idea that the changes amounted to a shake-up and said that Mr. Manafort was not being diminished.

Gravis Marketing announces partnership with Breitbart News

Winter Springs based Gravis Marketing has announced a new partnership with the Brietbart News Network. The announcement comes just a few weeks after Gravis was named the most accurate political polling firm by Bloomberg News.

“Andrew Breitbart was a conservative icon.” said Doug Kaplan, the managing partner of Gravis Marketing “He liberated millions of Americans from the mindlock of the mainstream media and the news platform he created, Breitbart News Network, is the biggest source of breaking news and analysis, thought-leading commentary, and original reporting curated and written specifically for the new generation of independent and conservative thinkers.”

In addition to their Bloomberg ranking and their designation as a Real Clear Politics polling source, the firm continues to grow their presence here in Central Florida with a growing roster of clients. Gravis also maintains their strong partnership with the Orlando Political Observer as a flagship sponsor.

“The explosive growth of Breitbart News rests on our ability to provide real time, actionable information to our community,” said Stephen K. Bannon, the Executive Chairman of Breitbart News Network, in their write-up. “Our partnership with Gravis is focused on just that — quantifying where the American people are on the issues of the day and the trends of tomorrow. Breitbart/Gravis will become a significant voice in the 2016 campaign and beyond.”

Poll Finds Grand Total of Donald Trump’s Support with Black Voters: 1%

Republican nominee Donald Trump has 1% (yes, out of 100%) of support from black voters, finds a new Quinnipiac poll.

By comparison, 91% of black voters backed presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The poll showed Clinton leading with 42 percentage points over Trump’s 40 overall, and qualified that these returns were too close to call.

Trump had support of 47% of white voters polled over Clinton’s 30%, while Clinton beat Trump with Hispanic voters by winning 50-33%. Republican nominees traditionally have not won the majority of support from African American voters, but they’ve done better than Trump is polling now: Mitt Romney won 6% of the black vote in 2012, John McCain won 4% in 2008, and George W. Bush won 11% in 2004.

This is definately an improvement from the 0% he was getting not too long ago.

Keep up the good work!  :clap:

Fox News Poll: Clinton leads Trump by 10 points, both seen as flawed

Sixty-one percent of voters think Hillary Clinton is dishonest, yet she’s opened up a big lead over Donald Trump in the latest Fox News Poll.

Here’s why: majorities think Clinton is nevertheless qualified to be president, and has the temperament and knowledge to serve effectively. It’s the opposite for Trump: over half feel he is not qualified, and lacks the temperament or knowledge to lead the country. And his 62 percent dishonesty rating tops hers.

After the conventions, the Clinton-Kaine ticket leads the Trump-Pence ticket by 10 points (49-39 percent) in the race for the White House. Clinton’s advantage is outside the poll’s margin of error. A month ago, Clinton was up by six points (44-38 percent, June 26-28).

This is the first time the Fox News Poll included running mates. Trump announced his vice presidential pick of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence July 15. Clinton told supporters she’d picked Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine July 22.

Since last month, Clinton’s position is improved with most groups, as she gained ground among men, women, whites, Democrats, young voters, and seniors.

The Democrat is winning among the so-called “Obama coalition,” the key voting blocs that secured his re-election. Clinton is favored among women by 23 points (57-34 percent), blacks by 83 (87-4 percent), Hispanics by 48 (68-20 percent), and voters under 30 by 18 (49-31 percent).

Politics / A quick reminder on the last day of the DNC:
« on: July 28, 2016, 03:41:20 PM »
Symbolism to these K----s is everything. Why do you think they continue to support the half K---- in the White House. He's a symbol. He hasn't done s**t to alleviate the plight of Black folk in his seven plus years in office. Oh he's cool and walks with that K---- swagger/pimp and speak in some K---- dialect now and then. It's the symbol baby - it's the symbol.

Whenever the above poster talks about how Trump will "Make America Great Again™", please keep his criticism of symbolism in mind.

Have a safe ride home and a blessed evening. :)

...that Onnidan Conservatives™ had little to say about the RNC last week, but have had much to discuss about the DNC so far?

The alt-right is more than warmed-over white supremacy. It’s that, but way way weirder.

There is, lurking in Reddit and 4chan threads and in community blogs and forums, a movement of right-wingers who openly argue that democracy is a joke. That it's weak, it's corrupt, and it caters to the whims of a fickle electorate rather than the needs of the citizenry. That Congress and the president must be replaced with a CEO-like figure to run the country as it truly should be, without the confused input of the masses.

For some in the movement, Donald Trump is that figure. For the hardcore, even the most authoritarian-styled presidential candidate in decades isn't good enough.

Welcome to the alt-right.

The label blends together straight-up white supremacists, nationalists who think conservatives have sold out to globalization, and nativists who fear immigration will spur civil disarray. But at its core are the ideas of a movement known as neoreaction, and neoreaction (NRx for short) is a rejection of democracy.

Thus, within the world of neoreaction, Trump's seemingly authoritarian impulses are a feature, not a bug. The only real problem is he may not go far enough.
