In other news, the active-duty service members deployed to Washington D.C. over the weekend were ordered to go home, but then Esper reversed the decision. It's not clear what's happening now.

Meanwhile, the Bank of England is now telling British banks that they need to step up their preparations for a no-deal Brexit. We're weeks away from no-deal becoming a certainty.

Finally, we found the voter fraud: Trump tried to register to vote in Florida using the White House as his address.

The September 2019 registration application listed Trump’s legal residence as 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, the location of the White House. That created a potential problem for Trump: Florida law requires voters to be legal residents of the state. A month later, Trump resubmitted his application to use a Florida address and in March he voted by mail in Florida’s Republican primary.

The revisions complicate Trump’s own record as a voter at a time when the president has made unsubstantiated claims of widespread fraud in mail-in balloting.

People have gone to prison for less than this.

    “People have gone to prison for less than this.”

    Not white people.

    Nice haircut, BTW. Solid opinions as always.

    But not white people…

    Just another example of Trump and the Republicans deflecting. They believe there’s widespread voter fraud (without any proof), simply because that’s what they do or would do if they got the chance.

    And England is fucked. The same type of idiot who voted Trump in the US voted Tory in the UK. People who are afraid of the rest of the world and just want to sit alone in their own country/state/county without any contact with anyone. Then, just like North Korea, they can believe that the rest of the world is awful and they’re doing great, because Dear Leader tells them so.

    As I mentioned in the previous thread, Josh Marshall at TPM says it’s likely Mark Esper was ordered to override the earlier order by the White House.

    The Bank of England has been recommending that for a while now. At some point, the banks will probably start thinking about listening.

    As for Donald Trump, LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! Since he committed voter-registration fraud (twice: once by listing the White House as his address to vote in Florida, then by listing Mar-a-Lago—which legally cannot be a residence, since it’s a club—as his permanent address), it’s only right.

    JM, I thought of asking that you update your photo on bc.com like your new one on Twitter <3, but it's really none of my business, so never mind.
