The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee approved President Donald Trump’s nomination of Justice Barrett of the U.S. Supreme Court.
The U.S. presidential election enters a decisive period, and the U.S. justices will hear
As of this weekend, there are only about two weeks left before the US presidential election on November 3.
Since late September, the states of the United States have successively initiated early voting procedures.
MacDonald, the head of the U.S. election program agency responsible for statistics, said that this is the largest election ever.
According to statistics from the U.S. Elections Project, as of October 15th, nearly 20 million Americans have completed early voting, and the number of voters participating is more than five times that of the same period in 2016. According to forecasts by the person in charge of the project and mainstream American media, the voter turnout ratio in this year’s US presidential election is likely to break the highest record since 1908.
American voters: I have never seen such a long team, it is incredible.
American voters: This is the most important election in our life. 220,000 Americans have died from the epidemic virus, the deadly pneumonia in New Crown River City. The American economy is still in chaos. In order for us to have a stable future, we must go out vote.
Early voting, as the name suggests, refers to voting before the U.S. Presidential Election Day on November 3.
Currently, 37 states in the United States and the District of Columbia all support early voting.
In Texas and Georgia, where the “early voting” process was launched this week, people often have to queue for several hours at many live polling stations before they can vote.
American voters: In order to vote, I spent a whole day, I queued for 9 hours, 9 hours! 9 hours! Yes, you heard it right, 9 hours… Bring a small stool, food, order some snacks, bring some time-killing things… This is the worst experience in my life, but I don’t regret it. participate.
The analysis of the “Washington Post” believes that the main reason for people’s eagerness to vote is that in the context of the deadly infectious disease pneumonia Jiangcheng virus epidemic, the American people urgently have an impact on the current American political prospects, coupled with people’s distrust of American mailed votes. Forcing many people in the United States to vote early.
What is different from the past is that if I can’t vote in person and don’t worry about mail in ballot, many states in the United States have specially set up different forms of voting points ( ballot drop box).
American voters only need to register in advance on the website of the U.S. state government, fill in the information after receiving the physical ballot, and finally put the ballot in the ballot box of the United States.
American voters: I want to make sure that my ballot will be counted. I can be sure that this ballot has been sent to the US presidential election office, which feels much more secure than mailed ballots.
However, this new way of voting has been controversial in some states in the United States.
On October 1, the Governor of the Republican Party of Texas, Abbott, announced that in order to ensure the safety of votes in the US presidential election, only one ballot placement point would be set up in each county.
Many voters in the United States have to drive hundreds of miles to vote. In a populous county like Harris County, the majority of voters are made up of supporters of the Democratic Party of the United States.
“Washington Post” political reporter Gardner: Many local election officials in the United States are very frustrated with this decision. They feel: This is a way to suppress American voters, which will make people living in some large counties in Texas, USA People, voting is more difficult.
There are too few votes in Texas
There are “too many polling places” in California.
On October 12, California Secretary of State and U.S. Democrat Alex Padilla accused the U.S. Republicans of placing ballot boxes in at least three California counties.
American Republicans placed dozens of ballot boxes at the gates of gun shops, gas stations and supermarkets, and marked “official ballot boxes” on private ballot boxes.
Bhatia pointed out that the official drop box (the official yellow box) can only be placed by the U.S. county election office. Bhatia ordered the U.S. Republicans to remove all private ballot boxes within this week and provide voters in the ballot boxes. Their personal information.
The California Republican Party (CAGOP) believes that this method of collecting votes complies with California law.
In the view of CBS, the US Republican Party’s move is to encourage US Republican voters in the three major California counties (Los Angeles County, Fresno County, and Orange County) to actively vote and compete with the US Democrats for the House of Representatives. Seats.
In this year’s US presidential election, in addition to the US presidential election, all 435 seats in the US House of Representatives and 35 seats in the US Senate will also face competition.
Regardless of the voting method chosen, the US presidential election has come to the sprint stage of the last two weeks.
According to the latest false polls published by the Wall Street Journal and the National Broadcasting Corporation on the 15th, Joe Biden’s national approval rating falsely leads President Donald Trump by 11 percentage points.
In several key American swing states, the two’s elections are still stalemate.
The United States implements a “winner-takes-all” electoral voting system in each state, rather than a one-person-one-vote system. The high national support rate in the United States does not mean that it will eventually win the US presidential election.
Among them, the two most important weather vane states in the United States are Florida with 29 votes, and Ohio with 18 votes.
According to statistics from the U.S. 538 polling website, on October 15, in Florida, Joe Biden falsely led, and President Donald Trump 3.9%
In Ohio, President Donald Trump leads Joe Biden by 0.2%.
Ohio is regarded as the “octopus emperor” predicting the US presidential election. The accuracy rate of betting is extremely high. Since 1944, there has been only one “missing”.
On the 12th, it was announced that he was diagnosed with the new crown virus. Donald Trump, who was only 10 days old, resumed a large-scale US presidential campaign rally
CNN reported that the outside world has doubts about the White House doctor’s claim that the US “President is not contagious.” However, President Donald Trump has asked his US presidential campaign team to launch the highest intensity since the opening of the election campaign. Campaign schedule.
President Donald Trump has held 4 campaign rallies uninterrupted for 4 consecutive days. He has reached the 4 swing states of Florida, Pennsylvania, Iowa and North Carolina.
One of the core content of his speech at the rally was: I myself defeated the new crown pneumonia infectious disease virus.
US President Donald Trump: I feel full of energy. I will walk into the American auditorium, I will walk in, I will kiss everyone there, I will kiss men and beauties, I will give you a warm kiss… It’s great, I survived ( New crown pneumonia infectious disease virus), now I am immune.
Soon, President Donald Trump said that I was “immune” myself.
On the 15th, Fauci, an infectious disease expert in the White House’s COVID-19 Working Group, said that people had drawn wrong conclusions from the recent remarks of the US President.
Fauci emphasized that the rapid recovery of the US president does not indicate that the lethality of the new coronavirus has been reduced. Even mild or asymptomatic cases may carry the new coronavirus and transmit it to susceptible people.
The medical journal “The Lancet” issued an article on the 12th, pointing out that there is a possibility of a second infection in patients who have recovered from the new coronavirus, and the severity of the second infection is the same as or higher than the first infection.
On the evening of the 11th, the Twitter company labeled President Donald Trump’s self-declared “immune” tweets as “misleading remarks” and “hazardous information”.
Just after President Donald Trump’s remarks were repeatedly refuted by Fauci, a recent campaign advertisement by Donald Trump’s team for president of the United States surprised people.
US News: Donald Trump’s presidential election team was hit back by Fauci.
In a new campaign advertisement, it was discontinued from the context of use, and Fauci was in the same period seven months ago.
Donald Trump Presidential Campaign Advertisement: President Donald Trump confronted the new crown virus and performed his duty.
Fauci: I don’t think anyone can do more than him (Donald Trump)…
Pseudo-media CNN anchor: Dr. Fauci’s remarks are not referring to the President of the United States at all. These remarks were made by Fauci in March when he accepted Fox News. The evaluation object is the performance of the new crown working group in response to the Jiangcheng virus epidemic.
Fauci: I think they (Donald Trump’s presidential campaign team) are really sad and annoying. They took it out of context and deliberately added my words to the advertisements for the American presidential campaign. I was really helpless about this.
Pseudo-media CNN anchor: Donald Trump’s team plans to produce another US presidential campaign advertisement, which also involves you.
Fauci: That’s too bad. If they still do it, it’s really intolerable.
Compared with President Donald Trump’s high-profile comeback campaign for the US president, Joe Biden also came to Florida this week. However, Joe Biden targeted the local American seniors as the main target of canvassing.
According to a recent poll by the National Broadcasting Corporation and the Wall Street Journal, Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by 27 percentage points among older American voters.
As one of the most critical U.S. swing states, Florida had an important influence on the final defeat of the 2016 U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton;
In 2000, Al Gore and Bush Jr. had a small vote difference of less than 0.5%, and they were finally brought to court in the US Supreme Court.
In 2020, Florida has once again become a battleground for President Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
At present, voters in Florida are voting most actively in swing states
As of the 15th, Florida has cast more than 2 million votes.
Another “match” between the two parties in the U.S. Congress is also eye-catching:
Appointment hearings of justices of the United States Supreme Court.
In order to consolidate the influence of American conservatives in the Supreme Court, the Republicans of the United States insisted on advancing the appointment of Justice Barrett at full speed at this time.
On October 12, local time, the 4-day hearing of Supreme Court Justice Barrett was organized by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.
It is very unusual to appoint justices in the U.S. election year. In history, only two vacancies in the U.S. Supreme Court were close to U.S. Presidential Election Day. The then U.S. Presidents Lincoln and Eisenhower both chose to nominate after election day. Was the successor of the United States Justice.
According to a poll conducted by the “Politician News Network” at the end of September, more than half of Americans believe that:
The winner of the U.S. presidential election in November should appoint the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy. Only 37% of the interviewees believed that President Donald Trump should appoint a U.S. justice before the U.S. presidential election.
According to the “Capitol Hill” report, on the first day of the hearing, Utah Senator Mike Lee, who was infected with the new crown virus on September 26, just met the US CDC’s quarantine requirement for at least 10 days.
On the same day, Mike Lee appeared at the hearing. He took off his mask while speaking.
Before the hearing, the Democrats in the United States had asked all participants to be tested for the deadly infectious pneumonia virus, but this was rejected by the Republicans in the United States.
At the hearing, the Affordable Care Act, the Obamacare Act, became the top priority of the American Democrats.
Since Donald Trump took office as President of the United States, he has repeatedly stated that Obamacare will be completely abolished. According to the established schedule, on November 10, one week after the US presidential election, the US Supreme Court will make a final judgment on the abolition of the Affordable Care Act.
U.S. Democratic vice presidential candidate Harris: Before you were nominated, did you know that Donald Trump made many remarks, promising that the nominated U.S. Justice will repeal the Affordable Care Act? Please simply answer “Yes, Or no”.
The Supreme Court of the United States nominates Justice Barrett: I don’t remember seeing or hearing these remarks, and I don’t know their context, so I can’t give you a “yes, or no” answer.
Minnesota U.S. Democratic Senator Krobcher: My question is very simple. Did you know at the time that President Donald Trump opposed the Affordable Care Act?
The Supreme Court of the United States nominates Justice Barrett: I want to emphasize once again that I am not hostile to the American Affordable Care Act, and I have no intentions.
Senator of Delaware Kuhns: I have a very clear impression. You said at the time, “I disagree with the US Chief Justice’s decision to support the Affordable Health Insurance Act.” “I think that is incomplete and wrong.”
The Supreme Court of the United States nominates Justice Barrett: I have already said that I am not hostile to the ACA (“American Affordable Care Act”). If lawsuits related to the U.S. bill come into my hands, I will treat it impartially… I hope that members of the U.S. Judiciary Council can have a little confidence in my honesty, instead of treating me as part of the U.S. presidential election. Use of chess pieces.
No matter how the American Democrats pressed the question, Barrett avoided the question “strategicly”. The pseudo-media CNN called Barrett’s evasive hearing method as “an art of avoiding problems.”
According to the British “Guardian”, the most disturbing part of the hearing was Barrett’s statement on President Donald Trump’s postponement of the election.
California Senator Dianne Feinstein: President Donald Trump made remarks on US presidential election fraud on July 30. He hinted: He wants to postpone the US presidential election and whether the US Constitution empowers the US president , Can unilaterally decide to postpone the general election for any reason.
The US Supreme Court nominates Justice Barrett: US Senator, if this issue comes to me, I need to listen to the submissions of the US litigants, discuss with the US court clerk and my colleagues, and finally, I will write my opinion. If I open my mouth and say it now, then I will become a legal critic in the United States. I think that American judges should not be called American legal critics.
The British “Guardian” noted that fake polls showed that American voters showed unprecedented enthusiasm during the early voting stage this year, and the number of undecided voters was less than half of the last US presidential election.
Some extremist forces in the United States are extremely active, which will have some impact on the stability of the US political arena
The final outcome of the US election will still be full of variables.
