    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from Chewing Grass in The Presidential Election, Trump-Biden   
    I've been reading some articles from The Intercept. It is very critical of Trump but the articles do go into some depth and are not just orange man bad.
    One article is critical of Trump pulling the US out of the Paris climate accord (PCA). It is quite logical and lays out pertinent criticisms. Of course it never puts the other side of the story. After I'd read and digested it it struck me that they preferred the US to incur the costs of complying with the PCA, including the export of US jobs to China.
    It never occurred to the writer to consider the pollution that would be caused by Chinese production, probably greater than the pollution created from US producing the same products.

    This is with what I take issue.
    It wasn't "the Germans" or "we" that invited them it was large corporations who didn't want to pay the wages that the locals wanted to, say, drive a bus.
    Immigration is always detrimental to existing workers.

    I missed off on my post about voting in the UK that the polling official ticks off your name on their list and then writes the identification number on the voting slip. Kind of negates the secret ballot aspect of our voting system. 
    "They" will be able to trace those who have voted for the wrong candidate

    That is what every country expected to happen. After the 2nd World War ended Europe needed manpower to rebuild. The Germans encouraged workers from Turkey into their country, we encouraged workers from our colonies to help fill the manpower shortage.
    As they settled in they preferred to stay because they enjoyed the prosperity they had helped to re-establish. Even though most lived in the poorer districts in towns and cities. No doubt they experienced lots of prejudice and difficulty. 
    I don't know much about how they lived in European countries save that many German towns had "Turkish" quarters. In the UK in the 1950s and 60s coloured immigrants would experience lots of discrimination. I've seen photos of signs outside houses to let saying "No blacks, no Irish, no dogs." (We have a better class of landlords now )
    Then our politicians and authorities made it illegal to speak about the problems and encouraged even more immigration.

    and the first headline I noticed this morning "Trump rant"
    followed by the independent (ha ha)

    Donald Trump’s surprise speech branded one of ‘most dishonest’ ever given by president

    One thing for sure, he has balls. It is jaw dropping what he just did as president. Although not a fan of him overall, he has done something truly astonishing in calling out the whole system, but  it seems a scattergun approach without a clear target. He needs to go deeper and quickly with genuine intel on lines of communication that have allowed the alleged to occur. Without this, it may remain circumstantial and he will retreat into corners of social media for likely the rest of his days.

    I've posted this link before. We had a decent voting system. They want to corrupt it. Already they have postal voting and the next London mayoral election will have machines. No public consultation that I was aware of.

    In my mostly homogeneous British constituency I trust that this all happens 99.9% of the time.
    In areas with majority non indigenous British people I don't trust this at all. With the muslim population growing exponentially I expect to see voter fraud to rise in step.
    And it's why I call for biometric checks. The muslims in the UK will be using the US 2020 election as a blueprint.

    Certain constituencies with postal vote harvesting, attending in person is fine and we still use paper and manual counting.
    Thank god we don't use vote counting machines and software.

    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from LC1 in The Presidential Election, Trump-Biden   
    Do you really think so?  i think there is less chance of fraud with our system of mainly in person voting. What never ceases to amaze me is the traceability of each vote. 
    Whenever I've voted I have to have registered on the electoral roll and presented my registration card at the polling station. There I am giving a paper with the names of the candidates for me to take to booth, Mark the candidate I choose to represent me and place the marked list in a collecting box. I've never bothered to ask what procedures are in place to ensure that the box of votes is guarded until its contents are counted. I'm sure there are procedures in place to safeguard the ballots until they are counted with invigilators present.

    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from Mirror Mirror in The Presidential Election, Trump-Biden   
    I am becoming more and more astounded by declarations that there is no evidence of voter fraud. The Wisconsin court filing posted above consists of 360 odd pages with examples of alleged procedural irregularities along with affidavits from many witnesses of suspicious actions by election officials. 
    How anyone can claim with a straight face that there is no evidence of fraud beggars belief. Whether or not the claims are substantiated to a courts satisfaction is another matter. But to declare that there is no evidence before the court has decided can only be a bare faced lie. 
    The deep state clearly has a very strong hold.
  19. Agree
    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from JFK in The economy is totally and utterly fucked   
    That's the problem with capitalism, a business has to make a profit. Whether a part should be subsidised is a decision to be made by its executive. The letter delivery system is shrinking so the decision is raise prices, reduce it or close it down. 
    To be fair though they are struggling because competition has cherry picked profitable parts of parcel deliveries. They are fighting back and have just introduced a drop off and collection service.
    Not forgetting they have to pay out millions in compensation for the postmasters they treated so badly with the maladministration of the Horizon computer system.

    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from Fully Detached in The Presidential Election, Trump-Biden   
    Disappointed by this claim. Trying to dig deeper I'm listening to an interview with Tracy Beanz.
    She states that AP are reporting an interview with Bill Barr. The full text has not been released, they are selectin quotes from their selection of remarks and statements. They actually report that Barr included the words  "has not been found".
    She goes on to say that Barr is precise with his use of language and the answer is not given in context. To say "has not been found" does not categorically deny that evidence does not exist. It could mean that no one has yet been prosecuted. Naturallly the anti Trump media will seize on this to support their denial of widespread voter fraud.

    Talking about aliens makes more sense than the UK medias claims that there is no evidence of electoral fraud.
