Forget all that Russian stuff. This could possibly be the news that loses Trump's supporters.

You now have to decide how this is labeled Fake News tm.  Your choices are:

A) Clay Aiken is a Democrat.

B) The Hill is Fake News tm.

C) CNN made Trump do it.

Choose wisely...your Real American card is at stake...

Another data point in support of the hypothesis that Putin's true goal may not have been to bring America under his thumb, but to simply break everything, c*ck up America, and grind it to a halt while Russia steps into the breach as a world leader.

Orchestrated Chaos: Trump’s election commission has been a disaster. It’s going exactly as planned.

Less than two weeks after its attempts to extract voter information from every state, including birth dates, voting histories, and the last four digits of voters’ Social Security numbers, the commission has been stymied by varying degrees of resistance in almost every state. In addition, lawsuits have ground the commission’s work to a halt. One filed by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and another by the American Civil Liberties Union alleged violations of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, which requires notice of public meetings and open public records surrounding such a federal commission. Yet another by the Electronic Privacy Information Center sought a restraining order and alleged that the panel had violated the 2002 E-Government Act by not undertaking a required privacy impact assessment of its request.

Things came to a head on Monday when Andrew Kossack, the panel’s designated officer, formally told the states to basically stop doing what 44 of them were already refusing to do anyhow. Kossack advised state elections officials that “until the Judge rules on the [Temporary Restraining Order], we request that you hold on submitting any data.”

Had the rollout of this enterprise been choreographed by Laurel and Hardy, it couldn’t have involved more banana peels. For instance, there was the time Kobach sent his request to state officials who don’t actually oversee elections. Then Kobach himself had to admit that—speaking as the voter official representing Kansas—his own state couldn’t even comply with the original requests. Oh, and the original letter demanded that data be sent via email to an unsecured server. Then Kobach contradicted himself about whether the documents received by the committee would be made public. Then there was Kobach’s potential violation of the Hatch Act, which bars federal employees from directly supporting candidates.

So what happened? How is it possible that the blue-ribbon supposedly bipartisan commission that Kobach co-chairs with Vice President Mike Pence forgot to do basic homework and paperwork—not to mention forgetting to find servers to store data—before sending out letters to state officials asking for all that private information? It looks and sounds a lot like the rollout of the first travel ban, all thunderclaps and mayhem without a shred of decent lawyering. But this wasn’t a Steve Bannon special; this was supposed to be a terrifying effort at mass vote suppression done by experts in mass vote suppression.

The rollout speaks to a certain ethos in Trump’s Washington: He doesn’t bring in experts who seek to effectuate change within legal parameters. He brings in kooks and nihilists who don’t care about how things get done—or even if they get done. The end game is just to break stuff. Don’t forget that the Justice Department is steaming ahead with its own under-the-radar efforts to suppress the vote nationwide. Whether the Kobach commission gets its part of the job done is immaterial.

...

In the end this all might simply come back to Bannon’s break-the-regulatory-state chaotic approach to government. The success of Kobach’s panel will ultimately lie in fomenting fear and uncertainty about the elections system. Consider the widespread reports this week of voters unregistering in response to the commission’s information requests. That is, as one Colorado official puts it, a win for the commission. Think about the endless messaging from Trump and Pence suggesting that states that refuse to turn over their data must have something to hide. Also a win for the commission. Consider member Ken Blackwell’s unfalsifiable claim that “we don’t know what we don’t know” about voter fraud. Good point, Ken! Even when the commission is losing, it’s winning. Everyone’s information is vulnerable and hackable! Better just to stay home. The whole purpose of this enterprise is to sow doubt and fear among voters about several states’ voting apparatuses. If the data is manipulated to suggest vote fraud—even if said vote fraud doesn’t really exist—Kobach wins. If there is no data but everyone has lost confidence in the integrity of the American elections system, well, guess what? Also a win. So very, very much winning. Why call it a commission when you can just call it the yawning maw of destruction?

Good to see some Texans pushing back against Trump.  Even his supporters won't play the "why are you cucking out" card with them.

I look forward to the upcoming Info Wars whack job on Krauthammer.

Trump can do it himself.  The last time Krauthammer criticized him, Trump said he couldn't even put on a pair of pants (he's a paraplegic).

You mean Trump was being Modern Day Presidential....

Besides, Krauthammer has a lot of college education, so he's an out-of-touch RINO cuck.
