Armistice Day, Veterans’ Day, Remembrance Day
The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month…
In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Written by Lt-Colonel John McRae (1915)
Earlier today there was a press conference in Las Vegas regarding one or more lawsuits to be filed regarding dead people voting, people who don’t live in Clark County voting in Clark County, and they had an older woman with them who said that when she went to vote she and her roommate were told that they had already voted. She said someone had taken their mail-in ballots and used them. Nevada mailed ballots to everyone whether they asked for one, or not.
After the press conference, David Asman on Fox News was commenting that they were making a lot of allegations but providing no proof at the press conference and that they should have to the journalists. That giving the journalists the proof was necessary. That the journalists were the fact-checkers.
Yes, David. Journalists are fact-checkers. Journalists should go and check the facts as given to them. Not just demand proof at a press conference — which doesn’t seem to happen at all press conferences — but go and independently check the facts as given.
Go and find out if there are instances of the “dead” voting. Go and find out if people who no longer reside in Clark County are recorded as having voted in Clark County. Go and find out if people were turned away at the polls as having already voted when they hadn’t.
THAT is fact-checking, not just getting something from the people who are holding the press conference.
