Maricopa County Officials Approve Presidential Preference Election Plans

December 11, 2019 (PHOENIX) — The Maricopa County Elections Department is committed to the security, integrity and accessibility of elections. Today, in preparation for the March 17, 2020 Presidential Preference Election, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved the first Election Day and Emergency Voting plan, while Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes approved the Early Voting Plan on Monday.

The plans — developed under the leadership of Scott Jarrett and Rey Valenzuela, co-directors of the Elections Department — will inform Maricopa County voters and other stakeholders about key information and activities, so that they are prepared to participate in the election.

The Election Day and Emergency Voting Plan includes strategies to:
·                Increase the number of Election Day polling places to 220.
·                Include 40 “vote anywhere” locations where you can also vote early.
·                Reduce peak wait-times to less than 30 minutes per voter.
·                Hire and train 1,500 poll workers.
·                Increase check-in stations from 120 to 1,400.
“This collaboration will provide the elections staff with the resources they need to best serve the voters,” said Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates, District 3. “We also expect this plan to help us achieve success for the Presidential Preference Elections and set the foundation for future elections, including the August Primary and November General Elections.”

The Early Voting Plan includes strategies to:
·                Communicate about the Voter Registration Deadline on February 18.
·                Inform voters that only registered Democrats are eligible to vote in the election.
·                Make 40 Early Voting locations available between February 19 to March 13.
·                Hire new Voter Registration Clerks at all voting locations.
·                Hold community outreach events to educate voters about key election information.
“The election staff has been focused on improving the voter experience for the upcoming election,” said Fontes. “I am confident in the work this team has done to ensure our elections are accessible, secure and transparent. I look forward to this continued momentum for all of the 2020 elections.”

Both plans outline the communications strategy to inform voters about both the March 17 Democratic Presidential Preference Election and the March 10 city elections for Tempe and Chandler voters.

What If I Told You Trump Won The Election Video

What if I told you…he won the election. That he spoke for millions who didn’t have a voice. That there are some who hate him. Resist him. Investigate him. And want to impeach him. Regardless of the facts. What if I told you that despite their attempts to undo the 2016 election, he is getting things done.

On this Day in History I Witnessed the Assassination of President John F Kennedy

John Fitzgerald "JackKennedy  (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963), often referred to by his initials JFK, was the 35th President of the United States, serving from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. 
I saw President John F. Kennedy assassinated on this day in 1963. I worked on the fifth floor in the building east of the Texas Book Depository where supposedly the shot was fired from. Myself and my office staff was lined up at the window with an unobstructed view of the parade. 
We heard the shot, it sounded like a car backfiring and then Jackie started trying to climb out the back of the car. She was wearing a bright pink pillbox hat and suit and from our vantage point we could see all of the confusion with the secret service trying to push her down and the car speeding away. Jackie was doing her best to climb out of the car over the trunk.
I didn't know anything to speak of about politics. I was a cynic about the process of politics, having been involved in a campaign for Governor Huey Long of Louisiana. That's a story for another day.
My unvarnished reaction:
I turned away from the window and headed back to my office with all the staff yelling the President has been shot. My comment was, these people will do anything to get elected. Even fake a shooting.
I wasn't devastated at the news, at the time I wasn't too concerned with politics. 
The person I was dating who later became my husband had been invited to the big whohah party for President Kennedy and Governor Connelly. When the announcement came that the President was dead my first thought wasn't about how it would affect a nation. It was I would not be going to a party and wouldn't get to wear a new black ribbon knit dress with the matching coat trimmed in black mink. I had my hair in a French twist and thought I was going to be the hottie of the evening.
As the weekend progressed and every television station counted and recounted the event, it began to sink in on how the nation and the direction of domestic and foreign policy would be effected. Like many others I stayed glued to the news and watched every aspect of the assassination, the swearing in of President Lyndon Johnson and the funeral.
The city was like the Twilight Zone, no cars on the streets, stores and restaurants empty. It was this way for the entire week-end.
When my 20 year old grandson Gavin was about 9-10 I took him to the Texas Book Depository which is now a museum and was explaining to him how his Nana had actually seen the assassination of President Kennedy. He said President Kennedy is the only President that was assassinated wasn't he? I said no President Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes Booth when he was at the theater..He asked me Did you see that one to? No that was one way before my time..He still hasn't lived that comment down.

Son of Two Terrorists Wins DA San Francisco Race

Chesa Boudin aims for “radical change” and “transformation.”
“Chesa Boudin has won the election to become San Francisco's next district attorney,” CBS News reported late Saturday. “The people of San Francisco have sent a powerful and clear message,” Boudin said in a statement. “It’s time for radical change to how we envision justice. I’m humbled to be a part of this movement that is unwavering in its demand for transformation.”
People in the vast hinterland to the east might wonder who Chesa is, exactly, and what kind of transformation he has in mind. Bernie Sanders was first to congratulate the victor, and San Francisco voters knew Chesa served as a translator for the regime of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. Still, a full understanding must start with Chesa’s mother, Kathy Boudin, a Weather Underground terrorist.
As Matthew Vadum noted, Boudin served 22 years in prison for her role in an assault on an armored car in Nyack, N.Y. that claimed the lives of police officers Waverly Brown and Edward O’Grady along with security guard Peter Paige. Boudin gained parole in 2003 and like other felons secured a position at the Columbia University School of Social Work, “where she crusades against the supposedly systemic racism of the justice system.”
That’s the mother, Kathy Boudin, and Chesa was only 14 months old when the $1.6 million Nyack robbery went down. Radical father David Gilbert drove the getaway car and Chesa was duly adopted by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. She gained fame for the celebration of the Manson murders. “Dig it!” Dohrn told an SDS rally, “First they killed these pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them!” Stepfather Ayers had similar plans, but on a larger scale.
As David Horowitz explained before Ayers’ 2013 interview with the Daily Beast, the man is a “shallow murderous liar.” The Weather Underground was created in 1969 with a formal “Declaration of War,” against “Amerikka.” As part of this war, Ayers and his wife famously urged others to “kill your parents” and were still being investigated for murder of a policeman in Los Angeles who was killed by a Weatherman bomb.

“I would suggest you call your senators at 202-224-3121 to shut down [the impeachment]. They can dismiss it out of hand. They should be telling the House right now that they’re not going to buy into an abusive coup attack on @realDonaldTrump ..@TomFitton

VIDEO: President Trump on the Death of Isis Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

No U.S. personnel were lost in the operation, while a large number of Baghdadi’s fighters and companions were killed with him.  He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming.  The compound had been cleared by this time, with people either surrendering or being shot and killed.  Eleven young children were moved out of the house un-injured.  The only ones remaining were Baghdadi in the tunnel, who had dragged three children with him to certain death.  He reached the end of the tunnel, as our dogs chased him down. He ignited his vest, killing himself and the three children.  His body was mutilated by the blast, but test results gave certain and positive identification.

Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.  He was the founder and leader of ISIS, the most ruthless and violent terror organization in the World.  The United States has been searching for Baghdadi for many years.  Capturing or killing Baghdadi has been the top national security priority of my Administration.  U.S. Special Operations forces executed a dangerous and daring nighttime raid into Northwestern Syria to accomplish this mission.
