7 Things: Biden is a notorious liar who believes none of what he is saying, University of Alabama SGA president praises school’s return-to-campus efforts, Saban leads a march and more …
7. Democratic insider describes how mail-in voter fraud happens
- Despite the insistence that voting by mail is safe, fair and the most amazing thing that has ever happened, a Democratic operative has explained how dirty tricks are used to change the votes of citizens to affect election outcomes, and that includes changing votes and even postal service employees throwing away ballots in Republican strongholds.
- These actions took place in New York, New Jersey and swing-state Pennsylvania, so this individual admits this is an open door to stolen elections, saying, “An election that is swayed by 500 votes, 1,000 votes — it can make a difference.” The insider added, “It could be enough to flip states.”
6. School in Baldwin County shutting down school sports
- While some schools are preparing to reopen early, Baldwin County High has stopped all athletic competitions and practices for football, swimming and cross country after a dozen suspected coronavirus cases.
- Superintendent Eddie Tyler has announced that the activities will be able to resume on September 9, explaining, “As these cases cover several sports, co-ed teams and age groups, we do not see a specific causation.” Tyler added, “[O]ut of an abundance of caution for the safety of our students and staff, we will take a break and resume after Labor Day.”
5. Trump has defended the alleged shooter in Kenosha, Wisconsin
- As the media demands Trump utter some magic words about denouncing violence so they can pretend that the violence in the streets is somehow his fault, Trump declared his support for Kyle Rittenhouse, accurately pointing out that he would have been killed by demonstrators if he had not allegedly opened fire.
- Barry Moore, the Republican candidate for Congress in Alabama’s Second District, posted a meme supporting Rittenhouse but eventually took the post down after AL.com, other media outlets and social media users complained about it. He also apologized, saying, “I should have expressed my feelings about the situation in words, not just with a meme.”
4. Trump is visiting Kenosha
- As protests and riots have continued after the shooting of Jacob Blake, President Donald Trump has planned a visit to Kenosha, Wisconsin, and after the visit was announced, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers (D) voiced opposition to the visit.
- Evers asked that Trump reconsider his visit, and Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy drew a comparison to how after the Emanuel AME Church shooting in 2015, “people of good conscience did not mind when President Obama came and helped us heal in Charleston.” He added, “That’s what presidents do.”
3. Saban takes a short recruiting trip
- University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban led a march on campus for social justice. He was joined by supporters and his Crimson Tide football team as they walked from Mal Moore athletic facility to the schoolhouse door of Foster Auditorium.
- At the end of the march, Saban commented that he’s “proud of our team, I’m proud of our messengers over here and I’m proud of the message.” He added that he’s “proud and supportive of what they are trying to say, and in a peaceful and intelligent way.”
2. More than 1,000 cases at the University of Alabama
- Since classes have resumed, some students say UA does not care about mitigating the spread of the coronavirus and cite that there have been 1,063 cases found across the University of Alabama System, with 10 each being at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of Alabama in Huntsville as of Friday.
- But while on CNN on Monday, University of Alabama Student Government Association President Demarcus Joiner said that he does “believe we all expected that we would have a number of cases just based on the number of students we have on campus.” Joiner went on to say that “the university has done everything possible to make sure that this is slowing the spread” of coronavirus.
1. Biden would hate to have to see his supporters wreck the country further
- In Pittsburgh, former Vice President Joe Biden spoke about the ongoing issues throughout the country, including the protests, riots and looting that has taken place throughout the summer. Biden finally condemned the violence, asking, “[D]oes anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?”
- Biden went on to say that Trump “long ago forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence – because for years he has fomented it.” While Biden continues to focus on blaming the violence on Trump, he’s yet to condemn actions by Antifa.
