• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

This came up in another thread for s short page but reading this report that shows whats ahead on voting day

Here is the 1st Paragraph of the News Story

Trump Tries His Hand at Voter Suppression;
Minutes after the DOJ announced it will work to protect voting rights on Tuesday, the president blasted out what can only be read as an attempt to scare potential voters.


Just minutes after the Department of Justice announced its plans to monitor the states’ compliance with federal voting laws during Tuesday’s midterm elections, President Trump tweeted out what read like last-ditch effort of voter suppression.

“Law Enforcement has been strongly notified to watch closely for any ILLEGAL VOTING which may take place in Tuesday’s Election (or Early Voting),” Trump wrote on Monday morning. “Anyone caught will be subject to the Maximum Criminal Penalties allowed by law. Thank you!”

Accusing the opposition of doing what the dictator is doing is common among tyrants and wannabe tyrants. His base will counter that he's just trying to uphold the law, but getting specific like that is not typically the forte of a US president. He's playing to his base supporters.

How in the hell does the Presidents comments about illegal voting scare away legally registered voters??? That makes absolutely no sense! The only way that makes any sense is if the voter or the "potential" voter is in fact not legal and is afraid of getting caught.

Are you not concerned about voter fraud? I guess Jill Stein and Crooked Hillary were tyrants types too because they claimed that the machines were hacked in three states after the Presidential election.

Concerned? Sure. Do I believe it's a widespread problem? No.

Do you believe Russia is interfering with our electoral process? You clearly don't disagree with Trump's comments, but why would you? You drank the kool aid.

There is actual evidence of Russian hacking into voting machines, although it doesn't appear that tallys were changed. The belief is, the hacking was done to get information about the machines software and OS.

First off i know the mechanical lever machines were ancient and needed to be replaced--the govt went ahead knowing the flaws in electronic machines tied into the internet and gave the go ahead to use them

paper ballots who knows anymore if thats safe also--i myself liked the mechanica-didnt really have to worry about a hack or lost vote--but look at it this way the other side of the world uses a cardboard box with no problems...lol

Back to the subject at hand--what i was trying to bring to reality was how these states are getting away with voter supression---Did you All read the whole story or Just what i posted on this Page--the real deal is down a few paragraphs and its not all about #45--Its about how States are surpressing the Voter Turnout with their Rules and Regulations--WE All Have A Right to Vote-Even the Native Americans are Getting Hasseled by State Govt.

as of now the fbi / doj / and the rest of them are reported to be manning all stations to discourage voter fraud / hacking and such--Here,s a letter from the fbi--and this is not copyright infringement


Joint Statement on Election Day Preparations

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)—in coordination with federal, state, local, and private sector partners nationwide—are continuing efforts to protect our elections. Today, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, DNI Dan Coats, and FBI Director Christopher Wray released the following joint statement:

Our agencies have been working in unprecedented ways to combat influence efforts and to support state and local officials in securing our elections, including efforts to harden election infrastructure against interference. Our goal is clear: ensure every vote is counted and counted correctly. At this time we have no indication of compromise of our nation’s election infrastructure that would prevent voting, change vote counts, or disrupt the ability to tally votes.

But Americans should be aware that foreign actors—and Russia in particular—continue to try to influence public sentiment and voter perceptions through actions intended to sow discord. They can do this by spreading false information about political processes and candidates, lying about their own interference activities, disseminating propaganda on social media, and through other tactics. The American public can mitigate these efforts by remaining informed, reporting suspicious activity, and being vigilant consumers of information, as discussed below.

The United States will not tolerate foreign interference in our elections from Russia, China, Iran, or other nations. As noted in a joint statement on October 19, 2018, such actions are a threat to our democracy, and identifying and preventing this interference is one of our highest priorities. On September 12, President Trump signed an executive order that makes clear the U.S. government will not hesitate to defend our electoral processes or punish those who attempt to undermine them.

Our agencies have been making preparations for nearly two years in advance of these elections and are closely engaged with officials on the ground to help them ensure the voting process is secure. Americans can rest assured that we will continue to stay focused on this mission long after polls have closed.

To learn more about efforts to protect America’s elections please visit: https://www.dhs.gov/topic/election-security.

Voters can take a few simple steps to help secure our elections, including:

Get election information straight from the source—your state or local election office. Call them or check their website. They will have accurate information you can trust on the status of your voter registration, polling hours and location, identification requirements, and election results.

Be smart when consuming or sharing election-related information: Know your source—and think before you link. Compare reporting from multiple sources to determine reliable information. Before sharing, ask yourself, “Who wrote it? Who posted it? What are their sources?”

Protecting the integrity of our elections requires oversight and verification which you call voter suppression.

That's not what I call voter suppression. Stop making such stupid assumptions. What Trump was doing is not "oversight and verification". Presidents don't do that. He was making political statements to placate his fanboi's.

So what? He has an opinion and the right to express it. Giving an opinion, no matter whether President or the town drunk by no means is voter suppression. What other people think of the meaning of such opinion or statements made by people is not voter suppression. Me suggesting that all Democrats vote on November 7 is not voter suppression (although a great idea). Rhetoric is not voter suppression.

The left has been accusing the right of the same crimes they are guilty of especially regarding Russian and the prior general election. You don't see any of it because you choose to wear blinders.:roll:

In Georgia, Trumpturd's pick is also the secretary of state who oversees elections. No conflict of interest right? Aside from the fact the guy is a rendeck turd with a checkered past and questionable dealings (including defaulting on a half a million dollar business loan), any reasonable person with any ethics would resign from the position overseeing a process that they are involved with and have a vested interest in an outcome in their favor. A judge wouldn't sit on a case involving a family member or business partner. Yet this southern drawl mouth breathing POS refuses to resign. Completely typical of the good ol' boys that run this state and are completely okay with this.

But the double digit IQ mouth breathers in this state see absolutely no problem. Keep electing these rich corrupt turds and wonder why this place is, to quote Trumpturd, a ****hole. Trumpturd sings Kemp's praises because both of these pieces of human waste exited the same rectum.

If dems loose tonight they will riot, turn cars over, set stuff on fire, etc. That has been proven over and over. If repubs loose maybe Trump will tweet some crap, otherwise it will be peaceful. Why is that?
And if Republicans lose, they'll put on their white hoods and robes and start burning crosses. After they shoot dead, anything that moves. But first, Trump will tweet about voter fraud.
