WE: Local officials in Colorado acknowledged "very serious" voter fraud after learning of votes cast in multiple elections under the named of recently-deceased residents.
A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records. "Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not theirs to cast," El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman told CBS4 while discussing what he called a "very serious" pattern of people mailing in ballots on behalf of the dead.
Can you dig it?

CBS: President Obama only learned of Hillary Clinton's private email address use for official State Department business after a New York Times report, he told CBS News in an interview.
CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.
"The same time everybody else learned it through news reports," the president told Plante...
However, an email released by the FBI claims Obama had a conversation with Hillary using the very email server Obama told CBS he didn't know existed, until it surfaced in news accounts.
Ted Cruz Endorses Donald Trump for President
By Michelle Moons Breitbart News September 23, 2016
Sen. Ted Cruz has endorsed Republican nominee Donald Trump for President four months after dropping out of the race for president, returning to his work in the U.S. Senate, and beginning to campaign for re-election in 2018.
My brothers’ a neurosurgeon and he’s even operated on one of your staff.
But it looks like there could be.
But so is your health.
That’s not what I asked.
We’re happy you’re happy, but aren’t you worried we’re worried?
Trump is campaigning in the light. It is you who stays hidden behind shades.
But he has.
Getting conked on the head, heat, dehydration, collapsing in public, then pneumonia. You’ve put a whole array of information out there.
That is what we are trying to get at. You saying so is not convincing. Bill says you fall down a lot.
If you insist.

She has it all. Wealth. Power. Great looks. Camel toe.
She is one smiling cat. Almost a Cheshire catwoman. Her slogan became "No Justice....I get peace."
And she just turned fifty!
Whose that girl with the cameltoe?
The riots in North Carolina are typical of the racial healing brought by our first black President. Trump made a very reasonable speech today supporting law and order. Saying we have to respect the right to protest but not the "right to riot." This is not sitting at a lunch counter or going to the front of the bus. This is destruction of property, disruption of everyday life and the murders of black people by other black people. That is where the danger lies as Trump pointed out. He correctly stated that if there was a national stop and frisk movement crime would go down precipitously.
Of course the criminals and savages and their families will be vehemently against this. This little sweetheart with her sputtering incoherent rage is typical. It is what you get when you indulge them. When you give them "room to vent." When as the Baltimore Mayor said they need room to "destroy."
You get Crown Heights. You get Ferguson. You get Baltimore. You get Charlotte.
North Carolina is supposedly a toss up state. Hillary's answer is that she is going to tell white people to be less racist. Trump's answer is stop and frisk to protect minority lives even if it is at the expense of political correctness.
How do you think that plays?
The original story is about Gerard Depardieu published on the Daily Mail. Depardieu is disparaging his native country. The story goes on about his Russian citizenship through his friendship with Vladimir Putin. When asked about his loyalty Depardieu says he is citizen of the world.
In my view, that is what happens when you become wealthy and famous for your talent, and fly all over the globe all the time. Your connection with your birthplace and with the circumstances that allowed for all that to happen tend to dissolve. One tends to become familiar with all of the lovely aspects of remote places while at the same time intimately aware all of all the negative aspects of your own home where you grew. So then, a superficial awareness of foreign loveliness and a deep comprehension of ugliness of intimate home.
Stick around for awhile and you'll see all the ugliness there is all around and home doesn't seem so bad after all. But you have to live long enough for that to happen and you have to not be so drunk for all that to sink through. Coupled with that is the truth, you can never go home again. You changed, and home changed. Changed happened all around and nobody can return to their perceived early state.
There are a lot of problems with France but making wine and stinky cheese for foreign tourists are not the most noticeable. Disparaging homebodies as afraid of foreigners does not address the issues they deal with that Depardieu flies above and around. Depardieu is not a serious person. Just another privileged world traveler with contempt for the societies that made his unique privilege possible.
So let's forget about privileged Gerard Depardieu for now. Another engaging actor, yes, he is not a serious person.
In comments to the Daily Mail article CHRJ in London says, "The French Oliver Reed. Brilliant!"
Jon in Paris responds, "Oliver Reed and Depardieu so called hell raisers.....which really means ... drunken bums"
CHRJ returns, "Yes great aren't they. In the words of Ollie 'that's what people expect of me, I give people what they want'. [They] Dont make characters like them anymore in the acting world. So dull. RIP Ollie."
I do not know who Oliver Reed is. Apparently a similar type actor. Possibly very well known. Possibly increasingly drunk and similarly silly and disparaging and possibly grown fat and unlikeable as he aged. I'm imagining all that, based on the comment exchange. So I look up Oliver Reed and right off this video is shown in results. I do not understand any of it.

"Gunfire killed a man in Charlotte on the second night of protests over the fatal police shooting of a black man"
|NYT: A second night of protests sparked by the police killing of a black man spiraled into chaos and violence after nightfall on Wednesday when a demonstration was interrupted by gunfire that killed a man in the crowd and law enforcement authorities fired tear gas in a desperate bid to restore order.|
|Within an hour, officials used the city’s Twitter account to confirm the death of the unidentified man, which they attributed to a “civilian on civilian” confrontation.|
Via email alert.
Since I don't have cable I have to look for entertainment elsewhere. One of the best sources is Youtube. It live streams on my TV and there are tons of interesting stuff. Old Westerns. Full movies. All kinds of stuff.
Lately I have been listening to comedy and found these hidden gems. It seems a comedy club in Manhattan has this Roast where two young comics go head to head ranking each other out. It can be pretty funny stuff. I knew Christi Chiello from her appearances on Bob Kelly's podcast which is another cool listen. She sounds like a cartoon character but can be pretty funny. This paticular one was brutal in the put downs.
These face off's can be pretty entertaining. It is like being in a comedy club without the watered down drinks or the drunks heckling the comics. Just a way to pass some time. Good stuff.
* Trump used foundation money to pay legal fees, report says ...
* Donald Trump Used Over $250,000 From Charity for Business ...
* Donald Trump Busted for Using Money From His Foundation to Settle ...
* Donald Trump used family charity to settle lawsuits against his ...
And so on.
And on and on and on.
I listened to a panel on CNN discussing this for a few minutes while getting ready this morning to set off. I heard only a few sentences before loosing patience entirely and shutting it off.
This voter does not care how Trump decided to pay, nor about what Trump was paying for nor the amount. I simply cannot bring myself to care. I don't care if it violates any law. I don't care if it is considered an egregious lapse. And the reason I cannot bring myself to share in media's concern is because everyone else telling me this is so terrible cannot bring themselves to care about Hillary Clinton loosing six billion dollars of taxpayers money as Secretary of State. So unless the amount approaches six billion dollars then any lapse is dismissed.
So my thought at the moment of being annoyed is this. When the amount approaches six billion dollars then shake me awake and I'll listen. Until then I have much more interesting things to do than listen to you.
Like filling beer bottles and putting labels on bottles. Can you see how much more interesting that is than listening to your panel carrying on?
It seems to me in my tiny uninformed opinion out here where the little people abide to be whole magnitude of order greater concern. One is a private matter, the other public money. One is quarter of a million dollars and the other six billion. And we'll only mention the millions upon millions upon millions that Hillary and her ex-president husband and her daughter scooped out their own foundations for their personal enrichment. And we'll only nudge at outrageous speaking fees cleaned through those foundations. And we'll only whisper at her foundation chartered in Canada to avoid U.S. law. And we'll and only signal in sign language Hillary Clinton selling access and services of State to foreign interests, and doing that repeatedly. So just shut up. And shut up completely. But you cannot. Nothing is going to work for you by way of deflection. Nothing.
(WWJ) James Olson, a Sports Illustrated subscriber since fourth grade, watches action-packed NFL games on TV to escape from the endless round of political bickering playing out on other channels.
But with more national anthem protests cropping up, he feels like politics has taken over his favorite sport, too. So he’s tuning out.
“I want to say to these guys ‘If you weren’t playing in the NFL, you would be working at McDonalds. I think people have had it,” said, Olson, a Birmingham, Mich., resident.
He’s not alone.

I am Hillary Clinton and I approve this message
* Lindsey Graham: “Race baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot.”
* Mit Romney: “Donald Trump is a phoney, a fraud.”

* Richard Hanna “Trump should not be supported.”

* Susan Collins “I jutht cannot thupport Donald Trump”
Then the text: Unfit. Dangerous. Even for Republicans.
