Joe Biden bidding for US Lawyers Ahead of November Electon
The Igbo say that, "One who kills with machete does not allow another to bring machete closer to him". This is the trepidation that has overtaken Democratic Part, and Joe Biden of the most. Biden has not got over the memory of the irregularity that gave Democrats the leading vote in the Obama second tenure. To ward this off, as he fears, he believes he needed to start now to work for his rainy day.
Being obviously aware of what happened during Barack Obama's re-election, Joe Biden has decided to assemble lawyers nationwide to monitor potential voting issues as part of its extensive voter protection efforts heading into the general election. Biden was perturbed that Trump might use his executive position to influence the November election.
Speaking at a virtual fundraiser Wednesday, the presumptive Democratic nominee said his team has organized 600 lawyers and others across the country to "try to figure out why the chicanery is likely to take place." He also said they have recruited 10,000 people as volunteers.
The efforts come as Biden repeatedly has warned President Donald Trump may work to disrupt the election, and he's accused the President and Republicans of pursuing a "systemic program on vote suppression." The campaign is also bracing for how the coronavirus pandemic could impact voting in the fall, from in-person voting to mail-in ballots.
"We're continuing to fight any effort to exploit the pandemic for political purposes, support the countless state and local officials working like hell to make voting safe and accessible for citizens, especially the most vulnerable, or call out local rules that don't adequately ensure access to vote," Biden said at the fundraiser.
The campaign is working on its voter protection efforts in coordination with the Democratic National Committee, which started bulking up its voter protection infrastructure last year ahead of the primaries. Democratic officials believe early investments in the program will pay off heading into this fall's general election campaign.
"Too often the norm in a campaign is that voter protection staff come on the ground in September or even sometimes in October unfortunately, and they're sort of on-hand to triage issues that come up, on Election Day or leading up to it," said David Bergstein, the director of battleground state communications for the DNC. "That model is not the best one to be utilizing particularly this cycle."
Campaign officials said Democrats, in coordination with state parties, other campaign committees and advocacy groups, have voter protection directors on the ground in 19 key states, including battlegrounds like Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Those directors are already engaged in a range of activities -- working with local election officials, monitoring developments on voter files, like voter purges, and recruiting volunteers. They're also keeping an eye on litigation that could affect voting heading into the fall.
States also will have a combination of staff and volunteers, many with a legal background who will be trained in the rules and laws specific to their state, campaign officials said. These volunteers can be used for initiatives like phone hotlines to provide guidance to voters about their voting options, including in-person and mail-in voting.
"It is really a focus of our on-the-ground program to make sure that we are helping voters understand all of the options available to them, and that we are doing our best to advocate for as many in-person opportunities on Election Day, during early vote, and also helping lift barriers to vote by mail," said Rachana Desai Martin, the Biden campaign's national director of voter protection.
Vote-by-mail efforts have come into sharp focus since the coronavirus pandemic hit the US this spring. Trump has long decried mail-in voting, and has ramped up his criticism in recent weeks by spreading widely debunked lies on social media about alleged voter fraud in the United States and making false accusations against states that are expanding mail-in options.
As part of his most recent efforts, Trump took to Twitter in late June to stoke fears about a rigged election, claiming in all-caps, "RIGGED 2020 ELECTION: MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WILL BE PRINTED BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES, AND OTHERS. IT WILL BE THE SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES!" He went on to tweet that 2020 will be the most "RIGGED" election in the nation's history "unless this stupidity is ended."
Those claims are widely debunked, and CNN's fact-check team has said of these claims that the President is "lying."
Biden has condemned Trump for stoking fear of voter fraud and said that ineffective voting practices are his "single greatest concern."
Last month, Biden went as far as suggesting the President might "try to steal the election," before knocking Trump for the hypocrisy of railing against mail-in voting when he casts his own ballots by mail.
"This is a guy who said that all mail-in ballots are fraudulent while he sits behind the desk in the Oval Office and writes his mail-in ballot to vote in a primary," Biden told The Daily Show's Trevor Noah in June.
The former vice president told donors Wednesday he plans to sound the alarm about potential voter suppression efforts and the President, saying he'll "continue to shout from the rooftops: 'be careful—he's coming.'"
Biden later added, "It's going to be hard. And if it's close -- watch out."
Justin Clark, a senior political adviser and top lawyer on the Trump reelection campaign, accused the former vice president of "lying and fear mongering."
"Democrats are the ones trying to fundamentally change how we vote," Clark said. "They are inserting chaos and confusion into our voting process because it is the only way they can win. The President is committed to fair and free elections and ensuring everyone who is eligible to vote, gets their vote counted."
Biden has called on Congress multiple times to provide funding for states to ensure more options exist for voters in the general election. He has pointed to the Wisconsin primary, calling its inefficiency and problematic voting process "a giant warning for the nation." Amid efforts to flatten the coronavirus curve in April, Wisconsin proceeded with in-person voting after courts halted Democratic efforts to delay the primary and extend the deadline for ballots to be returned by mail.
"Congress has to do its part and get them the funding they need," Biden said of states during a fundraiser in mid-April. "Trump's already attempting to undermine the election with false claims about voter fraud, threatening to block essential coronavirus assistance of any additional funds to go to the Postal Service."
Among the proposals the presumptive Democratic nominee has called for to ensure safe elections include same-day registration, passing legislation that would "boost funding to states for new secure paper-based voting system" and the sharing of election security information between state and federal governments. The nation also has to make clear to foreign governments, Biden has said, "that there will be a steep price to pay for interfering with elections."

Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment. Do you know that the ancient Egypt were civilized by architects from the (500,000 - 4000 BC) Nsukka Civiliation? Now, Dr. Zelenko provides updates on the treatment after he successfully treated 699 COVID-19 patients in New York. In an exclusive interview with former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Vladmir Zelenko shares the results of his latest study, which showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients intubated, and four ho
THE AKAN Copied from the book, Reality as Myth by Onyeji Nnaji . The influence of the Akan on their content nations lies on their population and commonwealth of their brother nations. The Akan are one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa. Their population is scattered across West Africa and beyond. Among this huge population of the Akan, the Ghanaians are more popular, perhaps because of the political influence of the Ashanti Empire in the area. Not much is heard or known about other Akan settlements like the Akwamu, the Akyem , the Akuapem, the Denkyira, the Abron, the Aowin, the Ahanta, the Anyi, the Baoule, the Chokosi, the Fante, the Kwahu, the Sefwi, the Ahafo, the Assin, the Evalue, the Wassa the Adjukru, the Akye, the Alladian, the Attie,the M'Bato, the Abidji, the Avikam,the Avatime the Ebrie,
Copied from the Book; " Reality as Myth " by Onyeji Nnaji The beauty of the discovering of the Radar Rivers and their channels is that it disproves the western hegemonic claim of the Euphrates valley being the position of the birth of the great river, all the points that opposed their claims notwithstanding. Even God himself was very perfect in His creation by placing them in their positions, hierarchically, according to their birth. The first river that flowed located the Havilah land where there are good quality gold, bdellium and fine onyx stones. Pison was the oldest of the rivers and it flowed through the land of the southern Africa. The second river flowed northward to Ethiopia. It was when Africa had been overtaken by virtue of her proximity to the Great Water that other parts of the world began to encounter the remaining river; remarkable with Hiddekel.

Copied from the book, Reality as Myths by Onyeji Nnaji T he world of the Bantu travellers shows the walls of the migration that recorded the highest population among the African settlement. Originating from the largest population among the four races that settled in the east before time, all Bantu travellers were pygmies; for that was the nature of the Umudiala, the generation that gave birth to them. Bantu migration was rated the third earliest migration of the Negro race from the east. In this regard, all their movement had involved great population of people compared to the number of people involved in the two earlier populations that gave birth to Ethiopia, Nubia and Egypt: the Walker Traveller, and the Race of Anu. Bantu population as we have identified in the third chapter above outweighs the rest of the population of the ancient fathers that founded many of the nations of antiquity mentioned earlier. Discussing them in beat will pose a little challenge since

This thing has happened for over three times. Each time we brought a new salesgirl, the girl would stay for two or three months; and suddenly she would end her contract with us. In all these, my husband did not know. So, being that the girls usually stole money and other items, the reason for their departure became genuine, thus: they ran away to avoid being punished for their actions. But behind this, the underlying truth is that the girls had been embarrassed by my neighbour who would warn them to leave her loosed husband. Re
T he name Nkalaha is a coinage which stands for a people occupying a geographical land and regional setting in the eastern part of Nigeria. It is a coinage which attempts to explain the direction of movement and adventure of the men who founded the community in the 15th century AD. According to oral sources and some documentation about this community, some of these men were believed to have traveled from Ida, old Benue state of Nigeria to inhabit the land. These men had traveled on different days to locate the place. Onojah who originally founded the land was said to have been in a deep search for a place of safety as he was besieged by a fate that appeared to make him somewhat incompatible with his own people. Nkalaha is one of the communities that make up Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Nkalaha occupied the northern part of Ishielu Local Government Area. She is located through the zip 135.031.000. The community sits on 923.768km 2 . She shares boundaries
The Mystery of Number, “Five” in the Igbo Cosmology. From: Aspects of the Ancient African Metaphysics; Chapter: Seven; Topic: Igbo Geometries and the Metaphysics of Numbers. Author: Onyeji Nnaji. I n the Igbo cosmology, the word Isee is a definite symbolic word as revealed through the Igbo language and culture. A human being has five fingers, five toes. The hands and feet are fundamentals to the survival in life as they are necessary in ensuring that man moves to places where he gets food and grapples on the food to sustain his life. To this view, the rhetoric that binds vocatives in the form of incantation (anchoring on the heart-lock: four ) and the concomitant reprisal in the manner of affirmation that holds the human life bind to his original spiritual person, therefore defining existence and essences are unified by the corresponding echo: Isee!!!!! Therefore it stands that anytime a prayer is said in the Igbo land, the attendants who would want the fulfillment of the
INTRODUCTION One thing that made Udi remarkable is the indubitable legacy adopted in commemoration of the legendry fighter, Uto at Nsude. It was one of the greatest contributions of the descendants of Agbaja to the survival of Nsukka civilization of memory. Uto held from Oshie. Uto dies of small pox after a mercenary battle he was hired to fight in the ancient Benin. His body was buried in the evil forest as the tradition demanded. Although he lived no longer, the stepped pyramids above were adopted to commemorate the lasting peace he brought to the entire Oshie and Udi nation of people. Another remarkable thing about Udi is the fertility of the land. This has contributed widely in sustaining the inhabitants and provided a name for the inhabitants in the manner of Abakaliki, Umudike, Ogbaru, Igboariam, Ohaji, Uzouwani, etc., especially in Amofia-Agu, Affa. Udi is a land of great rivers and springs: Adaada, Ajali, Oji, Aria, Nvenu, Ngene Evu, Iyi Ububo, etc. as was the situ
There are four generations…, and the fourth generation, which is the most exalted, is kingless and perfect. These people will enter the holy place of their Father and they will reside in rest … They are kings. They are the immortal within the mortal ( The Nag Hammadi, 219 ) Also read Nsukka Civilization: The Peopling of Ancient Nsukka One of the African homes that colonialism has completely deformed beyond certain level of recognition is Nsukka. Colonialism apart, the most affecting factor to the survival of the meaning which the rich cultural enclave, Nsukka, carries will best be blamed on postcolonial political structure. The biggest harm all these have against Nsukka as a people is that they rubbed her of the meaning of her name; their place of origin; how their fathers managed to come into their present abodes and who their ancestors were. A profound understanding of the excerpt above will open the door towards deciphering the meaning and origin of the people call
by Onyeji Nnaji Eha-Amufu road newly constructed by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state in 2019 A part from the strategic location of the Federal College of Education, one central reason remarkable about Eha-Amufu is her central position and her boundary situation. Eha-Amufu stands at the centre of many communities; as a result she has served as the gateway to different communities. She is bounded to Nkalaha, Agala, Ikem, Umuero and other communities, including Obeagu (pronounced Ubegu). Aside from that, Eha-Amufu embodies the route that traces the way to the northern part of Nigeria for travellers travelling from Ebonyi axis. Eha-Amufu also forms the remarkable boundary community between Enugu State and Ebonyi State. This situation makes Eha-Amufu very strategic in the discussion of the road and rivers across Ebonyi and Enugu. In the era when transportation on rail was the order of the day, the most popular then ‘Express Train and la
