The University of Alabama is reporting a rising number of coronavirus cases within its student population after starting its fall semester last week.
According to data from the school's COVID-19 dashboard released on Friday, an additional 492 students tested positive for the novel coronavirus from Aug. 25 and 27, bringing the total of student cases since August 19, which is when fall semester started, to 1,063 and since January 1 to 1,368.
Out of the new cases, 481 were reported from the school's main campus in the main campus in Tuscaloosa, nine were reported from the campus in Birmingham and two were reported from the Hunstville campus.
During the same timespan, an additional 51 coronavirus cases were reported within faculty and staff from across three campuses.

None of the students who tested positive for COVID-19 have been hospitalized, according to a press release from the school.
The university said that only 29.5 percent of its designated isolation space are currently being occupied.
"Fortunately, our isolation occupancy is below capacity, and the number will be adjusted as students complete the isolation period," UA System Chancellor Finis St. John said in a statement. "We are closely monitoring our data daily, and we will continue to adjust operations as the situation warrants."
Dr. Ricky Friend, dean of the College of Community Health Sciences at UA, added that there has been "no evidence of virus transmission due to in-person class instruction."
"We remain satisfied that the precautions implemented prior to the resumption of classes – including masking, distancing, and a blend of in-person and remote instruction – are appropriate and effective," Friend said in a statement.

Ashley Tisdale Raves About 'Easy' Quarantining With Husband: 'I Never Got Tired of Him'
Earlier this week, UA President Stuart Bell said student behavior was not to blame for the surge in cases.
"Our challenge is not the students," Bell said during a press conference on Monday, according to AL.com. "Our challenge is the virus and there’s a difference, folks. What we have to do is identify where does the virus thrive and where does the virus spread and how can we work together with our students, with our faculty and with our staff to make sure that we minimize those places, those incidents."
"It’s not student behavior, okay? It’s how do we have protocols so that we make it to where our students can be successful, and we can minimize the impact of the virus," he added.
UA joins a growing list of other colleges across the nation struggling with virus containment this fall. Last week, Notre Dame halted in-person classes for two weeks following a surge of COVID-19 cases just eight days after beginning its fall semester. Similarly, an Oklahoma State University sorority is under quarantine after 23 members tested positive for the respiratory illness days before the start of the fall semester.
As of Friday, there have been more than 5,916,100 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States and 181,300 deaths from coronavirus-related illnesses, according to a New York Times database.

UA president Bell talks as if this is the first time they've ever heard of the virus. We know where the virus thrives and where and how it spreads - and, yes, their problem (at least in part) is the students. If the administration doesn't acknowledge the seriousness of the situation, why would the students? I'm betting the frat parties and bars are operating pretty close to normal. Maybe UA could act as an experiment to see whether minimal reaction to the situation is a viable solution.

[size=40]New Tennessee law penalizes protesters who camp on state property with felony and loss of voting rights[/size]

Without bail fund donations, many BLM protesters might still be in jail 09:05


Washington, DC (CNN)Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed legislation on Thursday that will increase penalties for individuals caught camping on state property.
Bill HB 8005 increases the punishment for camping on state property from a misdemeanor to a class E felony that is punishable by up to six years in prison.
Signing of the bill comes as protesters have been camping outside the Tennessee Capitol in Nashville, demanding a meeting with the Republican governor to discuss racial inequality and police brutality since June, according to the Washington Post. Protesters are also asking for the removal of a Nathan Bedford Forrest bust at the State Capitol. Forrest was a slave trader and early Ku Klux Klan leader.
Campers would first be given a warning and those who refuse to leave would then be charged with a felony. Notably, convicted felons in Tennessee lose their right to vote, which could be a major blow to protesters amid a high-stakes election year.

Lee's signing of the bill comes just one week after the GOP-controlled General Assembly first passed the legislation. At the time, Lieutenant Governor and Speaker of the Senate Randy McNally, a Republican, touted the bill as a preventative measure against the forming of autonomous zones like the ones in other major cities.
"It is to prevent what has happened in other cities like Portland and Washington, DC," McNally said at a news conference after the measure passed. "If people, knowingly violate the law, knowingly thumb their nose at authority and don't do what authorities have requested they do, they should be charged with a serious crime."
The bill's sponsor, Republican House Majority Leader William Lamberth, said at the same news conference that the bill was to crack down on "criminal elements" and protect law enforcement officers.
"And then specifically on the criminal justice reform bill that cracks down on criminal elements out there that are unfortunately are making it very difficult for folks to even visit this capitol," Lamberth said.
The bill was part of a larger package of legislation signed by Lee that increases penalties for certain crimes like vandalism, disorderly conduct, inciting a riot and offenses to first responders. The new bill took effect immediately, according to The Tennessean.
"Anytime a law enforcement officer is assaulted I would agree that really is an assault on the state of Tennessee and all of our people, because that officer is really out there to protect and serve us. From whenever these bills are signed by the governor or go into law ... every officer can be certain they will be protected more than they are right now," Lamberth said.
The Tennessee chapter of the ACLU denounced Lee's signing of the bill as a "chill on free speech."
"While the governor often speaks about sentencing reform, this bill contradicts those words and wastes valuable taxpayer funds to severely criminalize dissent," Hedy Weinberg, executive director of ACLU of Tennessee, said in a statement to CNN.

The civil rights organization sent a letter to Lee on August 14 urging him to veto the legislation.
"This law also robs individuals of their right to vote if they are convicted of these new felony charges. We will be closely monitoring enforcement of this law and are urging Tennesseans to get out and vote like their rights depend on it," Weinberg said.

Americans, can use the option of early voting if your state has it. In New York it starts October 24th and ends on November 1. That is what I plan to do get out early and not vote on election day. You can go on line to find your early voting location.

As per twiiter , if you plan to mail in your vote do so 21 days before the election.

This is not a surprise. drumpf said the election is going to be rigged and he should know, as he is the one rigging it. It would be nice if the postal workers ignored Dejoy's garbage and just kept doing their jobs.

[size=48]Trump Defends Teen Charged with Killing 2 Kenosha Protesters: 'That Was an Interesting Situation'
"I guess he was in very big trouble. He probably would have been killed," the president said Monday. "But it's under investigation"

Hours after election rival Joe Biden denounced violence and destruction during protests and laid the blame of national unrest with Donald Trump, the president declined to condemn the actions of a teenager accused of killing two others at a Wisconsin demonstration last week.
On Monday, Trump, 74, cautiously spoke to reporters about the Kenosha shooting deaths of two men — Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36 — who were protesting in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man shot seven times in the back in front of his three children, according to his family.
Seventeen-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who had traveled to Kenosha from a nearby Illinois town, has been taken into custody and charged with first-degree intentional homicide and other crimes in connection with the Aug. 25 shooting, which left one other person injured.

Rittenhouse's lawyer argued on Fox News that he acted "100 percent in self-defense," while various video clips from the night of the shooting show a chaotic scene and critics say the armed teen knowingly inflamed the situation.
During a press conference on Monday, a reporter asked Trump if he'd like to speak out against the violence of Rittenhouse and other "vigilantes," to which he responded: "We're looking at all of it. That was an interesting situation."
Trump claimed that Rittenhouse "was trying to get away from them, I guess" when he fell and "they very violently attacked him." Added the president, "I guess he was in very big trouble. He probably would have been killed. But it's under investigation."
When asked whether private citizens should take such confrontations into their own hands, Trump said everything "should be taken care of by law enforcement."

The violence followed Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers' declaration of a state of emergency and an increased deployment of the Wisconsin National Guard amid ongoing protests across the state that followed Blake's shooting.
“We cannot forget the reason why these protests began, and what we have seen play out over the last two nights and many nights this year is the pain, anguish, and exhaustion of being Black in our state and country," Evers said in a statement on Tuesday. "But as I said [Monday], and as I’ll reiterate today, everyone should be able to exercise their fundamental right — whether a protester or member of the press — peacefully and safely."
In a campaign speech on Monday, former Vice President Biden spoke out against violence and was later criticized by Trump for it. Speaking from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Biden, 77, said he opposes violence "in every form it takes" — including "unwarranted police shootings and excessive force."
Biden also slammed Trump's "law and order" refrain, pointing out that the violence the president is promising to end is occurring under his watch.

"This president long ago forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence – because for years he has fomented it," Biden said, echoing a statement he released on Sunday regarding Trump's response to violence in Portland, Oregon. "He may believe mouthing the words 'law and order' makes him strong, but his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows you how weak he is."
"We are facing multiple crises — crises that, under Donald Trump, keep multiplying," Biden continued. "COVID. Economic devastation. Unwarranted police violence. Emboldened white nationalists. A reckoning on race. Declining faith in a bright American future."

[size=48]Lizzie Velasquez Says Parent Used Her Picture to Prank Child in Viral TikTok Trend
The #NewTeacherChallenge sees parents showing pictures of people with disabilities, such as Lizzie Velasquez, to film their reactions

RICH FURY/GETTY
Lizzie Velasquez — a motivational speaker who was born with a rare genetic disease that causes an aged appearance — is speaking out after she says her photo was used in a cruel trick involving children.
In August, the 31-year-old posted a plea to social media asking parents not to participate in the viral #NewTeacherChallenge, which she said saw at least one woman use Velasquez's image to prank a child into believing she was his teacher for the upcoming school year.
"TikTok, I need your help," Velasquez, a Texas native, said in a video message posted on her social media accounts.
"This trend where you are pretending to FaceTime someone who is either disabled or is a baby or just it's some crazy mugshot and you’re showing it to someone to get their reaction to saying, ‘Oh hey, talk to this person’ just to get a quick laugh, this is not funny!" she continued. "This is not a joke."

Velasquez was born with Marfanoid-progeroid-lipodystrophy syndrome, which causes and aged appearance due to a lack of subcutaneous fat, according to an entry in UniProt. Velasquez's video message — which has been viewed nearly 1.5 million times on Instagram — shows an example of the #NewTeacherChallenge using her image. In it, a woman shows a picture of Velasquez to a young boy, and he backs away while having a scared reaction.

“If you are an adult who has a young human in your life, please do not teach them that being scared of someone who does not look like them is okay,” Velasquez said. "Please, everything that these kids need to know about having empathy and being kind to one another starts at home."

"This is not okay, this is a trend that needs to stop," she concluded her video. "We are human and we have feelings, so please keep that in mind."

This isn't the first time Velasquez has had to confront bullies on social media in recent years. When she was 17, she was the subject of an upsetting YouTube video that labeled her the "ugliest woman in the world." Then, in 2016, a picture of Velasquez was featured in viral memes that shamed her appearance.
Those pictures pushed Velasquez to pen an emotional post in an effort to remind others that memes using their images are hurtful.

Velasquez has been an outspoken advocate for people with disabilities since experiencing online bullying, amassing a social media audience of hundreds of thousands of followers.
In a positive counteraction to the #NewTeacherChallenge, Velasquez shared a TikTok video of a mother showing her son a picture of "her friend Lizzie," and asking what he thought of her.
"She looks really nice," the boy says.
"She does look nice, doesn't she?" the mom says back. "Hopefully you can meet her in person one day."

[size=34]Donald Trump demands colleges re-open and sick students stay on campus claiming the alternative is 'suicides and depressions' – after Notre Dame shuts down in-person learning and UNC closes after a party[/size]


  • President Donald Trump demanded university and college students continue to attend in-person classes and remain on campus in the midst of the pandemic

  • 'Instead of saving lives, the decision to close universities could cost lives,' the president insisted during a briefing Wednesday

  • Trump told reporters sending students back to online classes would lead to rates of depression and suicide that are higher than rates of coronavirus 

  •  He said shutdowns and school closures are 'causing tremendous depression, suicide, drugs, alcohol, abuse'

  • Students at University of North Carolina were told to return home as in-person classes were stopped after nearly 1,000 students and staff got coronavirus

PUBLISHED: 19:59 EDT, 19 August 2020 | UPDATED: 01:35 EDT, 20 August 2020

     




Donald Trump said Wednesday that closing colleges and universities in the midst of the pandemic is worse than students contracting coronavirus because he claims closing schools will lead to a rise in depression and suicide.
'Instead of saving lives, the decision to close universities could cost lives,' Trump insisted to reporters during a press briefing at the White House a few hours before the third night of the Democratic National Convention commenced.
'The shutdown thing is causing tremendous depression for those places that are still shut down. You look at certain areas that – in all cases Democrat-run – still shut down. And their numbers there aren't even good. But causing tremendous depression, suicide, drugs, alcohol, abuse – a lot of problems are being caused,' he continued. 'Probably far more, I would say, than is caused by the virus itself now that we understand the virus.'






Trump also argued that sending students home to attend class online would be harmful to the larger mass of the older and more vulnerable people they would come in contact when compared to the likelihood of running into such demographics on a college campus.
'It is significantly safer for students to live with other young people than to go home and not spread the virus to older Americans, make sense?' the president said.
Trump's comments come as several universities that initially went back to in-person learning this month have transitioned back to online classes following an influx in confirmed cases.

Notably, both Notre Dame University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are both suspended in-person classes.
While UNC is also stopping sports for the time being, Notre Dame said its athletics are not yet going to be affected by the suspension.
Notre Dame announced Tuesday it is halting in-person learning for two weeks just eight days into the semester as 146 students and staff tested positive for coronavirus. The move there comes just a day after UNC announced its shift to fully remote learning after reporting 135 new cases stemming from a fraternity party.
UNC reports that there are four different clusters, defined as five or more cases in proximity, leading to at least 954 cases in students and 5 in university employees – two clusters stem from the residence halls, one at an off-campus apartment complex that houses students and one among members of a fraternity.
The University of Michigan ordered undergrads on Tuesday to stay home for the rest of the semester.
'Colleges should take reasonable precautions,' Trump admitted on Wednesday. 'Students who feel sick should not attend class and should limit social interaction as they would for any other illness. And universities should implement measures to protect the high-risk students or professors and teachers.'
The president has long said since schools went into lockdown earlier this year that students, K-12 and at the college level, should return to in-person learning.
He has even threatened to withhold funding from schools that do not return to the classroom in the fall.
'Multiple colleges and universities announced that they would suspend in-person teaching,' Trump lamented to the scarce room of reporters at his briefing. 'Now we have learned one thing – there's nothing like campus, there's nothing like being with the teachers as opposed to being on a computer board. It's been proven. A lot better – it's a lot better.'
'The iPads are wonderful, but you're not going to learn the same way you do by being there,' he insisted.
Trump has also repeatedly claimed that younger people are 'virtually' or 'essentially immune' to COVID-19.
'For older people and individuals with underlying conditions, the China virus is very dangerous,' he said, again calling coronavirus the name many claim is racist. 'But for university students, the likelihood of severe illness is less than or equal to the risk of the seasonal flu.'
'We must all remain vigilant and continue to exercise extreme caution around those at highest risk, as we know,' he said of the elderly and vulnerable.

An American woman living in Germany who went bar hopping while waiting for her COVID-19 test results likely caused at least 59 infections, authorities say.
The 26-year-old, who works at an alpine resort in the city of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in southern Germany, had recently returned from a trip abroad and decided to go out, despite having COVID-19 symptoms, the Associated Press reported.
Authorities in Bavaria are still investigating the incident, but said that the women likely violated the resort’s quarantine rules. Bavaria Gov. Markus Soeder said the outbreak was “a model case of stupidity,” according to the AP.
The county surrounding the resort, Edelweiss Lodge, which serves members of the U.S. military, has tested 740 people in the area for COVID-19 in response to the outbreak and confirmed 59 infections, including 25 among Edelweiss staff members. They are still waiting on 300 more test results and said they could not yet give an “all-clear.”

Soder said that “such recklessness must have consequences,” and the woman could get a large fine. Munich prosecutors have also opened a preliminary investigation into her actions and may charge her for causing bodily harm.

To reduce further spread, the city of Garmisch-Partenkirchen has ordered bars to close at 10 p.m. and cut group dining capacity by half — a limit of five people indoors and 10 people outdoors. Edelweiss Lodge has also completely shut down for the next two weeks, and the U.S. military has launched their own investigation into the outbreak.

“We are currently gathering the facts associated with this incident, as are our Bavarian hosts,” the Army told the AP. “U.S. civilian employees are subject to Bavarian ordinances on prevention of infectious diseases, just as any German citizen.”
Germany has been effective in reducing the spread of COVID-19 throughout the pandemic. As of Sept. 16, nine months after their first case, around 263,600 Germans have tested positive for COVID-19 and 9,368 people have died, according to The New York Times.

A group of people in rural Indonesia who refused to wear masks in the fight against coronavirus were forced to dig the graves of people who had died from the disease last week.
According to CNN, the punishment was given to a group that included three middle-aged men and five minors. Authorities hoped the act would convince others to be more proactive in slowing the spread of the virus.
"There are only three available gravediggers at the moment, so I thought I might as well put these people to work with them," a local official told Indonesia's Tribun News, according to a translation from USA Today.
Each grave was assigned two people, according to the outlet. One person was tasked with digging, while their partner inserted wooden support boards into the holes for bodies.

Much like the United States, Indonesia has been dealing with a "vocal" number of people who are purposely rejecting social distancing recommendations and not wearing masks, CNN notes.

The United States is nearing 200,000 deaths after reporting 6.6 million cases as of Thursday afternoon, the Times reported. The only other country in the world with more than 100,000 deaths attributed to coronavirus is Brazil, which has counted 134,106 lives lost.

On Thursday, the World Health Organization issued an alarming warning that coronavirus cases are surging in Europe and additional lockdowns are being considered to stop a second wave, CNN reported.

"Weekly cases have now exceeded those reported when the pandemic first peaked in Europe in March," WHO Regional Director Hans Kluge said, according to the outlet. "Last week, the region's weekly tally exceeded 300,000 patients."
"In the spring and early summer we were able to see the impact of strict lockdown measures," he continued. "Our efforts, our sacrifices, paid off. In June cases hit an all-time low. The September case numbers, however, should serve as a wake-up call for all of us."

In the United States, many school districts are opening up for in-person lessons.
The medical journal Health Affairs estimated that at least 42 percent of school employees in the country are at high risk of developing severe coronavirus cases because of underlying conditions.
New York City Public Schools recently postponed their plan to reopen next week. During a press conference, Mayor Bill De Blasio explained that the last-minute decision came after a three-hour conversation with union leaders who represent the city's principals, teachers and other staffers.[/size]

Annemarie - When I saw that article I thought it was a brilliant idea. Maybe if we did that here some of drumpf's mask-averse covid-deniers would finally realize how serious this is.

Re: the school situation in NYC: It's a mess! There aren't enough teachers to staff the schools the way they planned on doing things. Too many teachers don't trust that the schools are safe or that the testing protocols are sufficient. Too many students can't connect to the system for distance learning and even when they can connect there are problems staying connected.

Just like drumpf left it to each state to fight the virus on its own, NYC seems to be leaving each school to deal with reopening as best it can. It's a confusing mess for parents, students and teachers. To say they'll be ready to go back next week is a joke.

[size=48]Trump Administration Shut Down U.S. Postal Service Plan to Mail Masks to Every American: Reports

The Trump administration shut down a plan from the U.S. Postal Service to mail five free face masks to every U.S. household in April, according to several reports.
The USPS, in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), had drafted a press release announcing that it would distribute a stockpile of 650 million reusable masks to every residential address in the country. The first shipments, in April, would go to COVID-19 hotspots.
“Our organization is uniquely suited to undertake this historic mission of delivering face coverings to every American household in the fight against the COVID-19 virus,” then-Postmaster General and CEO Megan J. Brennan said the unsent press release.

Internal White House emails, obtained by the Washington Post and NBC News, showed that the Trump administration decided to cancel the program. An official in the administration told the Post that “There was concern from some in the White House Domestic Policy Council and the office of the vice president that households receiving masks might create concern or panic.”

HHS opted to instead distribute the masks to nonprofit organizations and state and federal agencies. A spokesperson for the department told the Post that about 600 million have been sent out since April.
When the plan originated in April, the Centers for Disease Control had just recommended that all Americans wear cloth face masks when they go out in public to slow the spread of COVID-19. President Donald Trump said at the time that he likely would not wear a mask and has rarely donned one publicly.

Though several scientific studies have since confirmed that masks are effective, Trump has pushed back on them as recently as Wednesday, and has not required them at his rallies.
Former Postmaster General Brennan, a holdover from the Obama administration, was succeeded in June by Louis DeJoy. Since taking office, DeJoy, a Trump donor, has made several cost-cutting changes to the mail organization in recent weeks, raising questions about how the USPS will be able to handle the influx of mail-in ballots ahead of the November presidential election.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court, has died
By Diane Herbst

MARK WILSON/GETTY
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court whose unwavering fight for women’s rights and social justice made her an icon to many admirers of the court’s liberal wing, died Friday. She was 87.
Ginsburg died at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic cancer, according to a statement from the Supreme Court. She was surrounded by family.
"Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague," Chief Justice John G. Roberts said in a statement. "Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice."
Ginsburg’s health had been more uneven in recent years. She was treated with chemotherapy in 2020 for a recurrence of pancreatic cancer -- first treated in 2009 -- that spread to her liver, and had four prior cancer diagnoses.

She underwent chemotherapy in 2020 for a recurrence of pancreatic cancer -- first treated in 2009 -- that spread to her liver.  In early November, 2018, she was hospitalized  after fracturing three ribs, leading doctors to discover malignant nodules in her lungs, which were successfully removed in December, 2018. Months later, during the summer of 2019, she was treated for pancreatic cancer. In 1999, she had surgery for colorectal cancer.
Justice Ginsburg, who served on the court for more than 27 years since President Bill Clinton appointed her in 1993, was one of the court’s liberal voices and at the time of her death led the liberal wing’s four members.
While diminutive and soft-spoken, her fiery dissent from the conservative court’s 2013 decision to remove voting rights protections sparked her ascent to pop-star status, earning her the nickname “Notorious R.B.G.” (a riff on the late rapper Notorious B.I.G.) as well as viral memes and even infant Halloween costumes.

Ginsburg’s renown continued to grow among progressives with her subsequent stinging dissents on reproductive rights and affirmative action cases.
“I am 84 years old and everyone wants to take a picture with me,” she said in 2018’s touching documentary of her life, RBG. That same year, Hollywood made a film of her life story, On the Basis Of Sex starring Felicity Jones as Ginsburg and Armie Hammer as her husband, Martin Ginsburg.
The biopic focuses on a young RBG -- going through law school at Harvard and Columbia at the top of her class but unable to get hired at a law firm after graduating. Instead, she began her career teaching at Rutgers University's law school, focusing on sex discrimination law.
Ginsburg made a name for herself as a champion of rights for women when she argued and won pioneering sex-discrimination cases before the Supreme Court in the 1970s. Once on the highest court, she wrote the 1996 opinion for the gender discrimination case United States v. Virginia that the all-male Virginia Military Institute must allow women.
Alongside Ginsburg for 56 years was her greatest champion, husband Martin, who died in 2010 from complications of metastatic cancer. They have both said their union was built upon “mutual respect and equality — and a willingness to share domestic duties,” according to The Washington Post.
The daughter of Celia and Nathan Bader, Joan Ruth Bader was born in Brooklyn, New York, on March 15, 1933. Her father emigrated to America from Russia and worked as a furrier and in a men’s clothing store. Her mother was a housewife.
Raised in Brooklyn, Ginsburg was extraordinarily close with her mother, who imbued in her a passion for learning and scholarship. While Ginsburg was in high school, Celia Bader was diagnosed with cancer. The night before Ginsburg’s graduation, Celia died.
Ginsburg wrote in a 2016 New York Times essay of her mother’s enduring influence: “First, a mother who, by her example, made reading a delight and counseled me constantly to ‘be independent,’ able to fend for myself, whatever fortune might have in store for me.”
During freshman year at Cornell University, the quiet Ginsburg met her future husband on a blind date. “He was the first boy I ever knew who cared that I had a brain,” she said in RBG.
They married upon her graduation in 1954. Ginsburg’s mother-in-law imparted wise advice that day. “‘In every good marriage,’ she counseled, ‘it helps sometimes to be a little deaf,’ ” Ginsburg recalled in the Times.
“I have employed it as well in every workplace, including the Supreme Court,” she wrote then. “When a thoughtless or unkind word is spoken, best tune out. Reacting in anger or annoyance will not advance one’s ability to persuade.”
In 1955, Ginsburg gave birth to their daughter, Jane. After her husband completed his Army service, the couple attended Harvard Law School. Ginsburg was just one of nine women in a class of 500.
“My success in law school, I have no doubt, was in large measure because of baby Jane. I attended classes and studied diligently until 4 in the afternoon; the next hours were Jane’s time, spent at the park, playing silly games or singing funny songs, reading picture books and A. A. Milne poems, and bathing and feeding her,” Ginsburg wrote in the Times.
“After Jane’s bedtime, I returned to the law books with renewed will. Each part of my life provided respite from the other and gave me a sense of proportion that classmates trained only on law studies lacked.”
While in law school, Martin was stricken with cancer and underwent chemotherapy. Ginsburg helped him with his coursework before she turned to her own.
“So it was after 2 o’clock that I started whatever was needed for my own classes,” Ginsburg once told the Washington Post. “I came to realize that I didn’t need a whole lot of sleep and I could stretch my day.”
Marty, a year ahead of his wife, graduated from Harvard in 1958 and joined a New York City law firm. Ginsburg followed him to Manhattan and finished her final year at Columbia Law School — tied for first in her class.
Despite her intellectual prowess, Ginsburg could not secure the top judicial clerkships or a job at a law firm. “Not a law firm in the entire city of New York would employ me,” she told TIME in a 1993 interview. “I struck out on three grounds: I was Jewish, a woman and a mother.”
Those closed doors eventually led Ginsburg to her work on women’s rights issues, winning five of six cases before the Supreme Court during her time as a professor at Rutgers and then Columbia’s law schools, and as co-founder of the Women’s Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union.
Ginsburg would spend 13 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit before Clinton needed to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court.
Marty, by then a well-known tax attorney, marshaled support for his wife’s appointment and became, as Ginsburg told the Post in 2013, “my campaign manager.”
Her passion outside of her family and the law was opera. “If I had any talent that God would give me,” she said in 2015 at Georgetown University’s law school, “I would be a great diva.”
Ginsburg survived colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, heart surgery, two incidents of broken ribs, hospitalization for an infection and nonsurgical treatment of a gallbladder condition while serving on the Supreme Court. Despite these significant health issues, the only time she missed from the bench was during January, 2019 arguments following surgery to remove two malignant nodules from her left lung on Dec. 21, 2018. 
She credited her ability to bounce back and have continued good health to the trainer she diligently worked out with, who she told theTimes in 2104, “has been my physical fitness guardian since 1999.”

Her continued good health was a constant worry for supporters following the election of President Donald Trump, who had installed two conservative justices in the first two years of his administration.
During a 2018 talk at Columbia University’s Law School, Ginsburg spoke of what she loved most in life.
“The tremendous luck I have had, I am a very lucky woman, starting with my dear spouse and my family, two children of whom I am very proud,” she said. “I love beautiful music, I love the work I do. I think I have the best job in the world for a lawyer.”

Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell vowed that the Senate will vote on a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died at her home on Friday due to complications of metastatic cancer, just hours after the news was publicly announced.
"In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term," said McConnell, 78, in a statement on the passing of the 87-year-old Supreme Court Justice. "We kept our promise. Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year."

"By contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary," the statement continued.
"Once again, we will keep our promise. President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate."

In his own statement, delivered live to the press Friday, Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden issued a strong rebuttal of McConnell's wishes to confirm a justice before the upcoming election.
"Let me be clear: the voters should pick the President and the President should pick the Justice for the Senate to consider," Biden said. "This was the position the Republican Senate took in 2016, when there were almost ten months to go before the election. That's the position the United States Senate must take today."

As Biden notes, McConnell's stance on Supreme Court confirmations in election years has seemingly evolved over time to suit his own political needs. When conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died in 2016, McConnell declared it too close to Election Day to consider a replacement, ultimately blocking the nomination of then-President Barack Obama's choice for the high court, Merrick Garland.
At the time, McConnell, a Republican, said elected officials should "give the people a voice in the filling of this vacancy" by waiting until the next president took office.
RELATED: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice and Liberal Icon, Dies at 87
Scalia died 269 days before the 2016 election. By contrast, Ginsburg's death occurred just 45 days away from the 2020 Presidential election.
McConnell's statement drew ire from a wide swath of Democrats, including Ed Markey, who said McConnell had "set the precedent" in handling Supreme Court nominations in election years.
"No Supreme Court vacancies filled in an election year. If he violates it, when Democrats control the Senate in the next Congress, we must abolish the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court," tweeted Markey.
Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, echoed Biden's statement on Friday: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."
Ginsburg herself is said to have specifically told family members that she did not wish to be replaced before the election.
NPR's Nina Totenberg, a close personal friend of Ginsburg’s, reported shortly after news of her death that the Justice had dictated to her granddaughter, Clara Spera, this statement in recent days: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."

President Donald Trump — who expressed surprise at learning of the news of Ginsburg's death — spoke in general terms about the high court during a campaign rally Friday. “We will nominate judges and justices who interpret the Constitution as written,” Trump, 74, said, according to The Washington Post.
ABC News reports that Trump will likely put forth a nominee in the coming days. Among the top names reported to be in consideration for the post are Amy Coney Barrett, a former Notre Dame Law School professor and Judge on the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals who once clerked for Scalia and Joan Larsen, who was confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in 2017 after being nominated by Trump.

The Senate — in which Republicans currently hold 53 seats — will need a majority to confirm a nominee, a process that could be stymied by conservative holdouts.
Shortly before the announcement of Ginsburg's death Friday, Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski said in an interview with Alaska Public Media: "I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee. We are 50 some days away from an election." Maine Sen. Susan Collins, also a Republican, has reportedly said she would not seat a Supreme Court justice so close to the election.

Season 18 Premiere: 'She Didn't Hold Anything Back,' Source Says
Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in repose for three days of public viewings around Washington, D.C., this week, making her the first woman and the first Jewish person to lie in state at the Capitol building.
The late, liberal icon and revered Supreme Court Justice died last Friday from complications of metastatic cancer at the age of 87.
She was surrounded by family when she passed away at her Washington home, according to a Supreme Court statement announcing her death.
The Supreme Court said Monday that Ginsburg will lie in repose on the top steps of the U.S. Supreme Court building on Wednesday and Thursday, following a private ceremony attended by family, close friends and other members of the Supreme Court in the building's Great Hall.

"The public is invited to pay respects in front of the Building from approximately 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Wednesday, September 23, and from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Thursday, September 24," the Court said.

Ginsburg's former law clerks will serve as the honorary pallbearers, according to the Supreme Court's announcement. They will line the front steps of the building, as her casket arrives.
The justice will be laid on the Lincoln Catafalque — which was once used for President Abraham Lincoln's coffin — while a 2016 portrait of Ginsburg by Constance P. Beaty will be displayed inside the Great Hall.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also announced that Ginsburg would lie in repose inside the National Statuary Hall at the U.S. Capitol building on Friday.

“Justice Ginsburg embodied justice, brilliance and goodness, and her passing is an incalculable loss for our democracy and for all who sacrifice and strive to build a better future for our children," Pelosi, 80, said. "Her opinions have unequivocally cemented the precedent that all men and women are created equal.”
The Court says Ginsburg will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery the following week.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic threw some hiccups into the plans to honor the late Justice.
Ginsburg would've lied in repose inside the Supreme Court's Great Hall, but social distancing restrictions have closed off the inside of the building to the public.
Friday's viewing at the U.S. Capitol will also only be available to invited guests because of the pandemic restrictions, Pelosi announced Monday.

Trump Nobel Peace Prize nomination - what you need to know


  • 9 September 2020






The Serious Side - part 8 - Page 16 _114304146_trumptopImage copyrightGETTY IMAGESImage captionPresident Donald Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for a second time
Less than two months before the US election, President Donald Trump seems to have something to celebrate - a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
A far-right Norwegian politician has put Mr Trump's name forward for the 2021 prize, citing the president's role in the recent peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News on Wednesday: "For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other peace prize nominees."
Adding that he was not a big Trump supporter, he added. "The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts - not on the way he behaves sometimes."


  • Famous winners of the Nobel Peace Prize
  • Diplomats surround 'harassed' Belarus Nobel winner
  • Nobel chief regrets Obama peace prize


Of course a nomination is not the same as winning - we won't know the winner for another 13 months - so what can we make of this news?

So who gets to nominate a person?


For a nomination alone, the barrier to entry is low: all nominations from heads of state or politicians serving at a national level are accepted.
University professors, directors of foreign policy institutes, past recipients of a Nobel Prize and members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee are also among those deemed qualified to submit a nomination for the prize. The nominations require no invitation and as long they are entered before 1 February of the qualifying year, they will be accepted.
For the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize - the winner of which has not yet been announced - there were 318 candidates. The Norwegian Nobel Committee doesn't publicly comment on its nominees, which are kept secret for 50 years.

The Serious Side - part 8 - Page 16 P07qnnqb




Media captionHow do you choose a Nobel prize winner?

Has Mr Trump been nominated before?


Yes.
And for the second time, he has Mr Tybring-Gjedde to thank. In 2018, the right-wing politician was one of two Norwegian lawmakers to nominate Mr Trump for the same prize, then for his efforts to bring reconciliation to North and South Korea.
Mr Trump did not take home the prize that year, but Mr Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the conservative Progress Party, insists the US president meets the criteria this time.
Last month, Israel and the UAE reached a deal to normalise relations, with Israel agreeing to suspend its controversial plans to annex part of the occupied West Bank - announced by Mr Trump in a surprise statement.


  • Israel opens tentative new chapter with Gulf Arabs


It is just the third Israel-Arab peace deal since Israel's declaration of independence in 1948, and marks the first official diplomatic relationship between Israel and a Gulf Arab country. Palestinian leaders were reportedly caught off guard by the agreement.
"This is a hard earned and well-deserved honour for this president," White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Wednesday. "Career politicians merely talk about the kind of results that this president has achieved on the world stage."
President Trump's critics say he is a polarising figure who exploits divisions rather than trying to bring Americans together.

Has a US president been nominated before?


Mr Trump is one of several US presidents to receive the peace prize nomination, including President William Howard Taft, President Herbert Hoover and President Franklin Roosevelt.
The Serious Side - part 8 - Page 16 _85598641_gettyimages-94465162Image copyrightAFPImage captionPresident Obama's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize also drew scepticism.
And if he were to receive the coveted award, Mr Trump would be the fifth US president to win, following Theodore Roosevelt in 1906, Woodrow Wilson in 1920, Jimmy Carter in 2002 and Barack Obama in 2009.
Mr Obama's nomination - after just months on the job - was met with criticism in the US, with some arguing he had not made an impact worthy of the award.

Report

The Serious Side - part 8 - Page 16 _112953491__108802839_624_transparent-nc
Among his detractors? Mr Trump, who tweeted in 2013 calling for Mr Obama's award to be rescinded.
The former Nobel secretary Geir Lundestad later said he regretted Mr Obama's selection. "Even many of Obama's supporters believed that the prize was a mistake," he told the AP news agency. "In that sense the committee didn't achieve what it had hoped for."
Mr Obama donated the $1.4m (£1.08m) award to charity.

Have there been controversial nominations before?


While the award's most famous recipients include Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa - all who won the prize - the broad criteria for nominations means that past nominees have included highly unorthodox, and controversial, selections.
Adolf Hitler was nominated for the peace prize in 1939 by a member of the Swedish parliament. Reportedly submitted in satire, the nomination was withdrawn soon after. A few years later, the Soviet leader Josef Stalin was nominated for the same award, twice, garnering nods in 1945 - for his efforts ending WW2 - and again in 1948.
After nominations are submitted, the recipient is selected by a five-person Nobel Committee, which is appointed by the Norwegian Parliament. The winner of the 2021 prize will not be announced until October of next year.

After Congress gave the Pentagon a $1 billion fund to help bolster the nation's medical supplies amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a new Washington Post report says hundreds of millions of that money instead went toward defense spending.
Congress expected the U.S. Department of Defense to use the fund to “prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus" and allocated the money under the CARES Act earlier this year.
Instead, the Defense Department allegedly used much of the money to purchase jet engine parts, body armor and dress uniforms, the Post reported Tuesday.
The new report comes as the U.S. is still struggling to maintain its stock of medical supplies during the pandemic, which has killed over 200,000 people across the country.
Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control, asked Congress this week for $6 billion to help distribute vaccines once they arrive, while another recent Post report shows hospitals across the U.S. are still experiencing shortages of N95 masks and other personal protective equipment.

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment on the Post report.

Congress initially gave the Defense Department $1 billion under the Defense Production Act, which allows President Donald Trump to call on U.S. manufacturers to help produce medical supplies.
However, in the months after Congress allocated the money to the DOD's fund, the Post reported attorneys for the department decided that hundreds of millions could be used for defense production as well. This allowed the department to award money to contractors, who instead used the funds to make up for lost revenue instead of making relevant medical supplies.
The Pentagon awarded $183 million to firms like Rolls-Royce and ArcelorMittal in order to maintain the shipbuilding industry, while it gave $80 million to Spirit AeroSystems — a Kansas-based aircraft parts manufacturer — in order to expand its "domestic production capability," according to the DOD website.

Another $2 million went to producing fabric for military uniforms, according to a DOD news release.
The Post report also found that at least 10 of the 30 companies who got funding via the Defense Production Act had already received relief money from the Paycheck Protection Program earlier this year.
RELATED: What To Expect As Donald Trump Pledges a Supreme Court Nominee Will Come ‘This Week’
Ellen Lord, an undersecretary for the department's acquisition and sustainment, told the Post the department is "thankful" for the resources, which the official says had "enabled the [executive branch] to invest in domestic production of critical medical resources and protect key defense capabilities from the consequences of COVID."
“We need to always remember that economic security and national security are very tightly interrelated and our industrial base is really the nexus of the two," Lord added.
However, the Democratic-led congressional House Committee on Appropriations wrote in a July 16 report that the Pentagon's spending went against what Congress had intended the money to be used for: “The Committee’s expectation was that the Department would address the need for PPE industrial capacity rather than execute the funding for the DIB (defense industrial base),” the committee wrote.
“This is part and parcel of whether we have budget priorities that actually serve our public safety or whether we have a government that is captured by special interests,” Mandy Smithberger, an analyst with the watchdog group, Project on Government Oversight, told the Post.

[size=48]Trump Mocks Reporters, Calling Excessive Force Against Journalists 'A Beautiful Sight'

At a campaign rally in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, President Donald Trump mocked reporters and praised acts of excessive violence by police officers against journalists.
The remarks came as Trump, 74, described recent protests in which law enforcement officers "grabbed" protesters and reporters. While imitating a police officer throwing a reporter to the side, Trump said, "They threw him aside like he was a little bag of popcorn."
"But I mean honestly, when you watch the crap that we've all had to take so long, when you see that, it's actually — you don't want to do that — but when you see it, it's actually a beautiful sight," Trump continued. "It's a beautiful sight."

Trump also used his time on stage to mock MSNBC host Ali Velshi, who was recently hit in the knee with a rubber bullet while covering a protest.
Mocking Velshi, while also misidentifying the network for which he works, Trump said, "That idiot reporter from CNN got hit on the knee with a can of tear gas, right? And he went down. 'I’ve been hit. I’ve been hit.' "
"But he went down, and he didn’t like it. He was hit," Trump continued, adding, mockingly, " 'Police brutality.' "
RELATED: Trump Cuts Off Press Conference After Another Heated Exchange with Reporters
The Trump campaign did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment.
The Tuesday comments echoed similar remarks made at a Minnesota rally last week, when Trump again seized on Velshi's knee injury.

"He got hit on the knee with a canister of tear gas. And he went down," Trump said at the Sept. 20 rally. "He didn’t — he was down. ‘My knee! My knee!’ Nobody cared, these guys didn’t care. They moved him aside. And they just walked right through — it was like, it was the most beautiful thing."
Velshi responded to those remarks in a tweet, writing, "So, @realDonaldTrump, you call my getting hit by authorities in Minneapolis on 5/30/20 (by a rubber bullet, btw, not a tear gas cannister) a 'beautiful thing' called 'law and order'. What law did I break while covering an entirely peaceful (yes, entirely peaceful) march?"

Mocking protestors — whom he has referred to as "terrorists" — and defending police officers has become an integral part of the Trump's campaign's 2020 message. At other rallies in recent months, Trump has called protestors "thugs" and argued that Democrats "don't believe in law and order."
Trump has long had a contentious relationship with the press, often getting in heated exchanges with journalists during press conferences and belittling them at campaign rallies.
The president has also called the press "the enemy of the American people" and consistently refers to news outlets including CNN, the New York Times and NBC as "fake news" and "failing."

It's easy to be a big brave bully when you're surrounded by Secret Service bodyguards. If he was the one hit by a rubber bullet he'd be crying like a baby.

PAN - Mitch McConnell is the senator from Kentucky. He has done more in his time in office to destroy this country than any other 10 politicians combined. IMO he is pure evil.

PAN - You're right that in a normal world every little bit helps. I'm just not sure that anything will make much difference now. Things are just too polarized. But, yes, we can always hope.

Here are two YouTube posters you might find interesting:

                   1. Beau of the Fifth Column
                   2. Liberal Redneck

Both have interesting things to say about the political situation, but Beau is more intellect-driven while "Redneck" is more in your face and directed at the drumpf supporters in his neck of the woods. Their posts are short and worth a look.

At a press briefing at the White House on Wednesday, President Donald Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transition of power should he lose the upcoming election, saying  "the ballots are a disaster" and he expects the election results to make their way to the Supreme Court.
The comments came after a reporter asked the president whether he would commit to ensuring a peaceful transfer of power after the election.
"We're going to have to see what happens, you know that," Trump, 74, responded. "I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are a disaster."
"Get rid of the ballots and you'll have a ... very peaceful — there's won't be a transfer, frankly, there'll be a continuation," the president continued. "The ballots are out of control ... and you know who knows it better than anybody else? The Democrats know it better than anybody else."


Trump's Wednesday comments echoed earlier remarks he made to Fox News reporter Chris Wallace.
In an interview with Fox News Sunday in July, the president said he would "have to see" when asked whether he might not accept the results of the election. Trump also told Wallace that he expected mail-in voting to “rig” the election, despite having no evidence to back up this claim.
RELATED: President Donald Trump Refuses to Say If He'll Accept 2020 Election Results: 'I Have to See'
Critics reacted swiftly to Trump's refusal to commit to accepting the results of the forthcoming election.
In a tweet, Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer said America "will not permit" Trump to be a dictator. Republican Sen. Mitt Romney said the mere suggestion that the current administration might not peacefully transfer power should Biden win was "unthinkable and unacceptable."

And Rep. Adam Schiff tweeted his anger at both Trump and the Republican Party, which he wrote was "too craven to say a word" in response.



When asked how he responded to the president's comments, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden seemed to be at a loss for words.
"What country are we in?" the former vice president, 77, asked reporters. "I'm being facetious. I said, what country are we in? Look, he says the most irrational things. I don't know what to say."
In a meeting with a group of state attorneys general on Wednesday, Trump cited the upcoming election as one of the reasons he is so keen on filling the Supreme Court vacancy after Ruth Bader Ginsburg died last Friday from complications of metastatic cancer.
"I think [the election] will end up in the Supreme Court, and I think it's very important that we have nine justices," Trump told reporters, again claiming that Democrats are attempting to rig the election.
"This scam that the Democrats are pulling — it’s a scam — the scam will be before the United States Supreme Court," Trump added.
Trump's comments come as polls continue to show him trailing Biden, facing an uphill battle even in red states. When confronted with those poll numbers in the past, Trump and those serving in his administration have called them "fake."

Some parents in Wisconsin’s suburban Washington and Ozaukee counties have sent their children to school knowing they had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, state health officials said.
“Something that happened and continued to happen … which I never in my wildest dreams imagined it would happen, is people sent their known positive kids to school,” Washington Ozaukee Public Health Department Officer Kirsten Johnson told WISN.
Johnson said there have been at least three instances where students tested positive and came to class anyways, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In one case, a student was so ill that they went to the nurse’s office. The nurse discovered that the student was on a list of those who had recently tested positive and should not have been in school.

“The biggest challenge for us that we’re experiencing right now is people are just being dishonest,” Johnson told the outlet. “They don’t want their children to be quarantined from school. They don’t want to have to miss work. In doing that, they’re jeopardizing the ability to have school in person and other people’s health.
“Look, your behavior, your dishonesty, is going to result in your children's schools being shut down,” she continued. “You need to be honest. You need to protect the rest of your community. The end.”

As of Sept. 22, the Washington-Ozaukee Public Health Department was actively investigating 25 schools in the two counties. Both counties are planning to hire more contact tracers and will consider shutting down schools completely if the problem gets worse.

“When you have parents lying to contact tracers, refusing to get kids tested, that’s just beyond the pale,” Washington County Board member Don Kriefall said, according to the Journal Sentinel. “That becomes very problematic for the health department to manage this whole situation. The hammer may have to be dropped.”
“We’re not going to be able to keep our schools open,” Kriefall added to WISN. “It’s going to, I mean, just a few parents that are irresponsible are going to affect the entire school district.”
A similar situation recently occurred in Massachusetts, in which a high school student in Attleboro attended in-person classes despite knowing they had tested positive for the novel coronavirus only days prior.
"It was a reckless action to send a child — a teenager — to school who was COVID-positive," Attleboro Mayor Paul Heroux told WHDH. "It was really poor judgment."

Retired Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster

Another former member of President Donald Trump's administration is speaking out against him.
After refusing to promise a peaceful transition of power if he loses the Nov. 3 election to Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Trump's former national security advisor, retired Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, told CNN that turmoil over a president refusing to leave the White House is "something that our founders feared."
"This is very disappointing and really this is something that our founders feared," McMaster, 58, told host Wolf Blitzer during an interview on CNN's The Situation Room.
McMaster referenced what two founding fathers, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, said in the Federalist Papers, warning about the "dangers of factions" and asserting that if people identify more with their political parties rather than the country as a whole, it could lead to turmoil.

"We have to demand that our leaders restore confidence in our democratic principles and institutions and processes," the former security advisor said. "And, of course, it’s the administration who has responsibility to secure the election process."

On Wednesday, when asked by reporters whether he'd take part in a peaceful transition of power if he loses the election, Trump said, "We're going to have to see what happens."
During his CNN interview, McMaster said the military should play "absolutely no role" in the election and that Trump's response to the questions about the transition of power was "very unfortunate."
"Our elections have been under attack in the past. Let’s not attack them ourselves," McMaster said. "Let’s come together as Americans and execute a process we can have confidence in."

McMaster's comments on Thursday echo a growing number of current and former Trump administration officials who have publicly disagreed with the president's leadership and criticized his repeatedly divisive statements about the upcoming election.
Trump's first defense secretary, Gen. Jim Mattis, denounced the president in June after his administration ordered U.S. military police to use rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse a crowd of peaceful protesters outside the White House, comparing his divisive leadership to the Nazi military's "divide and conquer" tactics.
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton, who replaced McMaster, wrote in his memoir that Trump sought to buddy-up with autocratic leaders like North Korea's Kim Jong Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Another top U.S. military general, Gen. John E. Hyten, allegedly described Trump as "an idiot" businessman with no "basic understanding of national security" at a 2017 dinner, according to a Washington Post report in July.

After Trump refused to commit to a peaceful power of transition following the general election, there was a rising concern both publicly and privately within the government about the president's ability to accept an election defeat peacefully.
The New York Times reported on Friday that Pentagon officials have privately vowed to step down from their posts if a potential situation arises in which Trump tries to pull the U.S. military into the mix to quell protests over the election's results.
Trump said in June that he wished to squash protests over the police killing of George Floyd by calling on the Insurrection Act of 1807. The centuries-old act allows the president to bypass local officials and send national troops to states to manage violent situations on U.S. soil.
That same month, Defense Secretary Mark Esper disagreed with Trump's wish to invoke the act.
