Trump appears to encourage North Carolinians to vote twice to test the system

As his poll numbers plummet, now Trump is telling people in North Carolina and Nevada to vote twice—once by mail, once in person, in what is a clear attempt at invalidating Democratic votes. Americans can only vote once per election, and it is a felony in many states to commit voter fraud. Make no mistake the president is intending to create chaos during the election in November.

Russia ‘launders’ disinformation by using fake personas, U.S. writers

Facebook and an independent cybersecurity firm say members of a Russian operation leveraging American writers and fake personas created a new site, Peace Data, which bills itself as a global news organization. The stories are designed to criticize Biden from the left, to steer possible voters away from his campaign. The main Russian goal is the same, to sow division and affect the November election.

Trump threatens to cut federal funds to ‘lawless’ cities

Trump signed a memo threatening to cut federal funding to “lawless” cities and “anarchist jurisdictions,”  including Seattle, Portland, New York and Washington. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Twitter that Trump was purposefully trying to cut funding that states and cities must receive to recover from the coronavirus pandemic. “He is not a king. He cannot ‘defund’ NYC,” Cuomo said. “It’s an illegal stunt.”

In North Carolina, Biden appears to lead 50% to 46%, in Arizona, he leads 49% to 40%, and in Wisconsin, Joe is up 50% to 42%. The positive numbers only underscore the hard work that must continue. Trump will continue to create chaos, sow division, and suppress votes.
