AMERICA VOTES: 2022 Midterm Elections are underway

Arizona election officials report significant number of tabulation machine problems

The 2022 Midterm Elections are underway and Americans across the country are casting their ballots which will decide the direction of the country.

The November 8th midterm elections will also determine control of both the House and Senate—and as usual is often decided by just a few seats which will ultimately change the balance of power.

Important races in battleground states like Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania will establish what gets done in Washington D.C. over the next two years.

This election year is weighted down by major economic turmoil and rampant crime.

But, just hours after Election Day polls opened on the West Coast, Arizona officials in Maricopa County said that about 20% of their polling sites were experiencing issues with tabulation machines.

The Chairman to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors said technicians were working to solve the problem as quickly as possible.

Early voting totals are already pointing to a record-breaking turnout for a non-Presidential election year.

Why Elon Musk was booed on stage

New Twitter boss Elon Musk did not receive the warmest welcome at Dave Chappelle’s recent comedy show

Elon Musk appeared embarrassed at Dave Chappelle’s recent San Francisco comedy show, when the audience began booing him.

A mixed reaction from audience members at the show. Some cheered as Chappelle welcome Musk onto the stage, but it was impossible to notice many booing him.

It’s no surprise though, given San Francisco is the home of Twitter HQ, and the place where Musk just fired thousands of staff.

It comes as the controversial new boss makes drastic changes to the social media platform.

 “Sounds like some of those people you fired are in the audience….

Don’t say nothing. You hear that sound, Elon? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest.”

After trying to joke his way around the awkwardness for Musk, Chappelle finished the show with some words of wisdom and a prayer.

“Booing is not the best thing you can do. I wish everybody in this auditorium the joy of feeling free and may your pursuit of happiness set you free. Amen.”

However, Musk has since responded to the booing from the crowd insisting it “was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods), but, still, that’s a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life (frequent on Twitter).”

BORDER CRISIS: Republicans call for Homeland Security Sec. to resign

GOP delegation led by Kevin McCarthy showed ‘gratitude’ to border patrol and called for Mayorkas to resign or potentially face impeachment

Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, a Republican delegation led by GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy is touring the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas.

Officials say the visit to the southern border is a way for lawmakers to show gratitude to border patrol agents who have been inundated by unprecedented illegal crossings this year.

After their tour on Tuesday, Leader McCarthy called for Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over his handling of the migrant crisis at the southern border – or potentially face an impeachment inquiry when Republicans take control of the House next year.

According to statistics some 2.3-million illegal migrants have walked across America’s southern border in this year alone.

The sheer volume of crossings are not only a security risk but also a humanitarian crisis.

America already is a country that has one of the most welcoming policies for legal immigration.

The all-important midterm elections have given Republicans the majority in the U.S. House of Representative.

In his first visit to the U.S.-Mexico border since being nominated to be speaker of the House for the next Congress by his Republican caucus, McCarthy in warning Biden and Democrats that they plan to use subpoena power to secure the border.

McCarthy accuses the White House of ‘actively undermining’ immigration enforcement—a contentious issue that has been plaguing the Executive branch of government under the Biden administration which has been turning a blind-eye to the criminal activity.

In a letter sent to Republicans last week, McCarthy said the southern border is the most important issue facing the new Congress.

Tuesday’s tour is the California Republican’s third trip to the southern border since President Joe Biden took office.
