Rittenhouse got arrested. Reinhoel got executed. Or so it appears.

Probably paywalled. Sorry for that.

The original story was that Reinoehl, who was wanted for the killing of a member of Patriot’s Prayer, pulled a gun on police who were attempting to arrest him, who then opened fire in self defense.

The original story is falling apart and it appears that Mr. Reinoehl was the victim of an execution by the authorities. He was deserving for arrest, but not for extra judicial execution.

The investigation is not yet complete, but the pieces coming out appear rather damning to the authorities.

Lindsay Graham, showing his true colors?

Ya’ll colored folks can go anywhere you want in the state I represent. But ya gotta be what I tell you to be. 😇

Is it any wonder The Cook Political Report has moved a GOP stronghold seat from “lean Republican” to “toss up”?

Mr. Graham, if you want to retire, just do it. Don’t be insulting to people in your state who don’t hold your political values.

SLATE: Republican Senator Proposes Bill That Would Make It Illegal to Count Votes

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/09/republican-senator-bill-illegal-mail-vote-count-deadline.html

More GOP attempts at voter suppression.

When election security has been discussed on this forum in the past, some have said that federal monetary support would be a mandate that takes away the running of elections from the states. In actuality, the election security bills put forth by the Democrats have only been for monetary support for states to conduct their elections safely and fairly. Bills have passed out of the House and disappeared into Magic Mitch’s black hole of a desk drawer, where bills and Supreme Court nominations go to die.

This proposal by SEN Scott IS a mandate for states not being able to run their elections as they see fit and in accordance with their own laws.

Throw away the ballots or don’t count them; the NEW GOP way of winning elections, because they know they can’t get enough votes without suppressing voting, cheating, lying or stealing.

And those on the right are OK with it because THEIR votes will be counted.

SLATE: Impeach Bill Barr

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/09/impeach-bill-barr.html

An interesting argument explaining why Barr should be impeached. I would have called it “compelling”, but I have learned on this forum, there is no such animal.

“That’s not how oversight has ever worked. Barr’s unilateral declaration—that any attempt by Congress to question him or his officials is illegitimate—is just the latest effort to place the executive branch above its constitutional obligations. The administration has spent recent years refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas for executive documents, most notably during the impeachment inquiry, but the refusal to even appear is a complete rejection and dismantling of oversight altogether. This latest effort calls for the only possible proportionate response: William Barr should be impeached.”

The author, Molly Claflin is chief oversight counsel at American Oversight. She previously served as counsel to the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “American Oversight is a non-partisan, nonprofit ethics watchdog and is the top Freedom of Information Act litigator investigating the Trump administration.” It may be difficult to believe they are non-partisan based on WHO they are investigating currently. But they were also involved in investigating Clinton’s email situation.
