Election officials: Barr's warning of foreign hacking of mail-in ballots is 'preposterous'

In an apparent attempt to distract from the very threat of foreign intervention by states like Russia to help Donald Trump win in 2020, Attorney General William Barr is making up bullshit about the vulnerability of mail-in ballots. «We've been talking about how, in terms of foreign influence, there are a number of foreign countries that could easily make counterfeit ballots, put names on them, send them in,» Barr told The New York Times Magazine. «And it'd be very hard to sort out what's happening.» Absolutely not true, say current and former elections administrators. They tell the Washington Post’s Amy Gardner that it would be virtually impossible for a foreign country to counterfeit ballots. The elections chief of Colorado, Judd Choate says «there is zero chance» of it happening in his state. «It's preposterous to the point of humor,» he said. «There isn't an election office in this country that doesn't know how many ballots they've mailed out, how many they've gotten back in, and who they were sent to,» Tammy Patrick, a former elections official in Maricopa County, Arizona, said. «It is absolutely not the case that someone could create a multitude of ballots and in some way infuse them or inject them into the system without detection.»

U.S. officials flat out lie about their assault on First Amendment peaceful assembly

U.S. officials crossed the Rubicon this week when they not only abetted and perpetrated an assault on peaceful protesters Monday evening outside the White House but subsequently lied about their role in the attack Tuesday.  The chaotic scene of federal police using shields, batons, tear gas, and rubber bullets to clear Lafayette Park of peaceful citizens played out on TV screens across America, conveniently coming at dinner hour on the East Coast. The lack of provocation or aggression of any kind was clear as police armed in riot gear gassed protesters, ramming them with their shields to push them back.
