How This Campaign Penned Over 10 Million Handwritten Letters Urging Americans to Vote

  How This Campaign Penned Over 10 Million Handwritten Letters Urging Americans to Vote When Scott Forman started a software-assisted letter-writing campaign to get out the vote in 2017, he had no idea it would become the perfect strategy for 2020’s global pandemic election. Today, his nonprofit, Vote Forward, has recruited volunteers to pen over 11.5 million letters and counting that will be sent later this month to unlikely voters across the nation. “It’s one of the biggest tactics in our unusual year where it’s no longer possible to knock on people’s doors,” Forman told The Daily Beast. Older volunteers at higher risk of severe COVID-19 complications are looking for a grassroots organizing method they can do safely from home, he said.

US President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden are battling for the presidency in a sharply divided United States.

Trump has been focusing on “law and order”, Biden has been trying to strike a conciliatory note. The Black Lives Matter movement, and whether Trump will release his taxes are among the many issues Americans will consider when choosing their president.

As the hotly contested election approaches, Al Jazeera has been speaking to voters across the US asking nine questions to understand who they are supporting and why.

Fox News Pushing ‘Brain Room’ to Lend Credibility to Trump’s Voter Fraud Paranoia, Insiders Say

  Fox News Pushing ‘Brain Room’ to Lend Credibility to Trump’s Voter Fraud Paranoia, Insiders Say Multiple academic and research-center studies have soundly debunked President Donald Trump’s repeated warnings that mail-in ballots—supposedly a Democratic plot to rig the November election in which Trump is running for a second term as 45th president of the United States—are rife with fraud. The leadership of Fox News, however, has apparently decided that the president’s made-up claims—eagerly parroted by primetime opinion-mongers Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham—could also be validated by the Trump-friendly cable channel’s nominal straight-news division.

Deana Wagner

Age: 76

Occupation: Retired Dental Hygienist

Residence: Valley County, Idaho

Voted in 2016: Donald Trump

Will vote in 2020: Donald Trump

Top election issue: Corruption

Will you vote? Why or why not?

“Yes, I will be voting. I’ve never missed a vote. My parents were active and I grew up being aware of politics and the state of our country. I think that being a Peace Corps volunteer had a bigger impact on my voting and my ideas of how [elections] should be.”

What is your number one issue?

“Entrenched corruption in our government. Our bureaucrats are making laws. The legislature, the Congress, do not make laws any more. They try to get it through this Supreme Court, and so many of our congressmen enrich themselves. They’ve been there too long. I think the phrase is ‘draining the swamp’ right now.”

Who will you vote for?

“Donald Trump.”

Is there a main reason you chose your candidate?

“Yes, he is an outsider. And I think that’s one of the reasons there is so much resistance. And the more resistance, the more I know it’s right. Because there is so much entrenchment in [Washington] DC. It’s like another country. My son lives there, and he works for the Department of Defense. [Idaho] is the West, and the West is different from the East Coast. And they seem to forget that there’s the rest of the world out here, the rest of the country.”

Are you happy with the current state of the country?

“At the moment, we are lawless. We have attorneys – prosecuting attorneys in different states who do not prosecute. In Portland, Seattle, they have stood back and let people break the law.

“I lived in Sierra Leone, in Peace Corps. I’ve learned in Africa that when you don’t treat someone equally, and you do it because they’re a different colour than you are, you’re a racist, as far as I’m concerned.

‘Putin’s Chef’ Barred From Europe for Shady Mercenary Operations

  ‘Putin’s Chef’ Barred From Europe for Shady Mercenary Operations When he was released from a Soviet prison in 1990, Yevgeny Prigozhin went to work as a hot dog salesman. Soon, the budding entrepreneur—who had just served nine years for robbery and fraud—began moving up in the world of gastronomy. He became the manager of a chain of grocery stores in St. Petersburg, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s hometown, and eventually expanded into the restaurant business. In the late 90s, Prigozhin opened New Island, a floating restaurant on St. Petersburg’s Vyatka river. It became popular with the local elite, and a few years after its launch, Putin showed up for dinner at New Island with French President Jacques Chirac.

“If you don’t speak out and say, ‘wait a minute, fellow, you know, we’re on equal footing here. You don’t pee on my leg and call it rain’, that’s the western term. That’s racist. If you hold back. If you say, look, we’re equal. You’re not going to burn down my house. You’re not going to burn down my store. And we’re lawless right now. And we’re doing it because when they talk about systemic racism, that’s the part that’s true.

“If we don’t call your number, because you’re ruining and burning down our city because you’re Black, or because you’re Brown, or because you’re a millennial female who’s been propagandised into feeling that the world isn’t right unless you are angry … It seems a lot of young women are angry. I don’t understand that. I’m 76, so I lived through the 60s. And the reason Nixon got elected, was because of the right, and lawlessness. We’re gonna do it again.”

What would you like to see change?

“I would like to see term limits on our congressman – 40-50 years is way too long. Harry Reid came in as a poor man, who was a real estate man – didn’t have two quarters to rub together – and he left a multimillionaire. Obama came into his presidency with a million dollars from his book deal. He’s now 40 million-plus – how does this happen? Is there something going on in DC? This isn’t right. And so common term limits, I think, are really important – though they’re not going to vote for them themselves. But term limits are an issue, and following the law.”

Latest Mail-In Ballot Controversies Fact-Checked and Explained

  Latest Mail-In Ballot Controversies Fact-Checked and Explained The topic of mail-in voting has been a point of focus and controversy throughout the 2020 election season. President Donald Trump has consistently "warned" Americans about the dangers and frauds that are attached to mail-in voting through the use of false information and the distortion of the mail-in voting practice. © Joseph Prezioso/AFP/Getty A woman holds up a mail-in ballot during the Massachusetts state primary on September 1 in Boston. On the other hand, Democrats have expressed their belief in Trump's motivation to depress voter turnout rather than to prevent voter fraud.

Do you think the election will change anything?

“Here we have a transfer of power that’s always been peaceful, and it’s not right now. And that’s not the Republicans’ fault. That is the media and the Democrats’ fault. They did not accept who won. They weren’t prepared for Hillary losing, they are so convinced that she was going to win. And she didn’t, okay? Next four years, you’ve got a chance to make it different. But they have totally turned this into a violent response.

“And part of the hate for Trump is just because he won, and the encouragement ‘this guy’s a bad guy – he’s orange man bad.’ When you go and see what he’s done, and actually, he’s done [a lot] without the Congress and look at the Middle East peace deal. And nobody’s talking about it. We’re actually having Arabs and Jews talk together in the Middle East. It’s never happened. I wished that the Democrats would accept whoever lost. That’s the way it is here. But this business is not a peaceful transfer of power. It’s just sad.”

What is your biggest concern for the US?

“We get back to the peaceful transfer of power. Senator Biden, I think that’s elder abuse. I’m sorry, the man is not right together. I mean, he’s only a year older than myself. But you can see him failing. And I just don’t understand why his wife is allowing him to run. I mean, this is elder abuse. But he got the numbers and so that’s okay. But he’s not going to be able to serve more than six months.”
