Yeah, I cheated a little in the title. Today is the recall election in California, my home state. I fully expect Newsome to crawl over the line with enough votes to survive, and frankly, for the most part, voters in California deserve to keep what they voted for in the first place. That said, from a state with a crazy streak as hot and wide as the Central Valley, California's recall laws are unusually bizarre. The governor can be put up for recall by a fairly small petition campaign, and then recalled by a losing a majority of votes in a hastily called election; OK, I suppose that's fair, but what's even weirder is the his replacement is chosen by the winner of the most votes in a potentially huge field (I mean, everybody in California thinks they can do a better job, and many probably could). Hence, the very real chance that well known figure from the opposition party, say Ahnold Schwarzenegger, or Larry Elder, could capture the seat. Oh what fun!

At El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills, some voters say they were told the computers showed them as already having voted, even though they had not.
West Hills resident Estelle Bender, 88, said she was far from the only person who was being told incorrectly that they had already voted.
In addition to friends of hers who experienced the issue and two other women outside the polling place, Bender said that inside, “the man next to me was arguing the same thing.”

Brian Joondeph at Am Think is thinking 'Nothing Can Stop What is Coming.' What If Nothing is Coming?
A popular catch-phrase among pro-Trump patriots is: “Nothing can stop what is coming.”
This is based on the theory that there are things quietly going on behind the scenes, that President Trump still has a hand in what is happening today.
Perhaps he is laying a giant trap for Democrats and the deep state establishment. Or perhaps the military is in control under the theory of devolution.
Or perhaps, this is all delusional wishful thinking.

|And he looks like such an upstanding citizen!|
The FBI has fired one of the lead agents credited with thwarting a plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer after he was charged with beating his wife following a swingers party, The Detroit News has learned.
The firing of Special Agent Richard Trask earlier this week comes amid questions about agent misconduct and whether as many as 12 informants were driving the alleged conspiracy.
Trask was fired, according to a source familiar with his case, while awaiting trial on a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and allegations he smashed his wife's head against a nightstand and choked her after a dispute stemming from their attendance at a swingers' party in July. Trask also was moonlighting as a personal trainer and it was unclear if his superiors at the FBI were aware or had approved the job.
If I were on the defense I would demand he be put on the stand. There appears to be a reasonable case to be made that the FBI crossed the line by suggesting, planning, and providing the means for the plot, all in time to reveal it before Whitmer's reelection.
Not surprisingly, the party whose organizing method is “the moral equivalent of war” views American politics as the continuation of warfare by other means, to flip von Clausewitz’s axiom on its head. And as the past month has illustrated, they’re far more focused on fighting against American people and industries, rather than Middle Eastern terrorists.
