Nonsense. That's not why. They are protecting Joe Biden. 100%.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
ND does not need the riots. The fact that Biden is Catholic has nothing to do with it, if that is what you are implying. There are plenty of Republicans in the student body not to mention alumni. The pandemic may be a side issue, but the University is taking quite a few precautions agains COVID. Hosting the debate against a backdrop of protests is not the image that ND wants to project to future students.

I've got a friend from Cleveland that anticipates violence before the scheduled debate there so it is "unsafe" and the debate gets cancelled. Seems plausible to me.

In these private conversations, Obama—who has acknowledged that Breitbart News changed the “entire media narrative” in a “powerful direction”—reportedly has said that he is worried that Trump has a base of supporters who do not get their news and information from establishment media outlets

establishment media outlets = DEM and radical left propaganda rags

Obama reportedly believes that because establishment media outlets cannot reach some of Trump’s voters, the president’s supporters can filter “out any contradictory information” by getting their news from Breitbart News, Fox News, and Rush Limbaugh.

correct. we filter out the lies and fabrications that get planted in the Wash Post, NYT, MSNBC, etc

“It’s just glued to Fox News and Breitbart and Limbaugh and just this conservative echo chamber — and so, they’re going to turn out to vote,” Obama reportedly said in a conversation with Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker (D).

“What he has unleashed and what he continues to try to tap into is the fears and anger and resentment of people who, in some cases, really are having a tough time and have seen their prospects, or communities where they left, declining. And Trump tries to tap into that and redirect in nativist, racist, sexist ways.”

obama has a problem recognizing patriotism and love of country

but there it is in a nut shell - the entire DEM attack strategy - claim everything President Trump does is nativist, racist or sexist. everything


Obama reportedly also views Trump as an existential threat to American democracy, “even making an oblique reference to Nazi Germany” during one of the conversations,” according to the Times.

“The endpoint of that we saw in Europe 60 years ago, 70 years ago — what happens when those things get unleashed,” Obama reportedly said during one of the conversations. “You don’t nip that in the bud, bad things can happen. Among the most quote unquote civilized societies.”

like riots and anarchy in DEM controlled "civilized society" ? Portland ? Seattle ?

The former president has reportedly been adamant that donors and activists do not take the 2020 presidential election for granted or underestimate Trump and his supporters.

Obama was the most racist politician that I have seen in my lifetime and this asshole is running around spewing more of the same racist, divisive crap he spouted for eight years.

The Supreme Court by a 5-4 vote has denied a request to halt construction of President Trump’s border wall over environmental concerns.

A number of groups, including the ACLU and Sierra Club, had asked the high court to get involved again after the justices last year cleared the way for the administration to use military funds for construction while the case played out in the courts.

A federal appeals court had ruled against the administration last month, but the justices, for now, have given another temporary victory to the administration.

The four liberal justices dissented from Friday’s order.

No, what I'm implying is that those on the Notre Dame debate committee or whatever they call themselves are leftist asswipes who are trying to protect Biden from looking like a buffoon during the debates. That's 100%. It has absolutely nothing to do with potential riots or the effects of the Wuhan, though that will be their excuse.

Notre Dame is no different than most big universities nowadays. It is a leftist propaganda machine.

My son just informed of this. May be the greatest thing Trump has ever done Big Grin Heads are exploding, "waaa, no more Tik Tok!"

ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (AP) — President Donald Trump says he will take action as soon as Saturday to ban Chinese-owned video app TikTok from the United States.

Trump made the announcement to reporters Friday on Air Force One as he returned from Florida.

“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump said.

U.S. lawmakers have raised intelligence and privacy concerns about the company’s ownership. The company has denied allegations that it shares user data with the Chinese government.

The move comes as Trump has ratcheted up tensions with China during the coronavirus pandemic and stalled trade negotiations between the two nations.

The company’s operations in the U.S. has been under review by the secretive Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

Trump said he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order to enforce the action, insisting, “I have that authority.”

I have no idea, but I just think it is hilarious Big Grin. I do know that the main demographic are teenagers. Some of the more tech-saavy guys will chime in. But I'm sure some surveillance/ security issues are abound.

First of all, ND is not a big university and is not in the same category as Michigan, University of Wisconsin or Cal Berkeley. It has never been known for leftist propaganda. The reason they wanted to hold the debate was to showcase the University in a positive light. FREE Publicity. Case Western probably could use the publicity. I think your assumption that it had something to do with protecting Biden is absurd. Notre Dame has conservative Professors on its faculty and it is not the place that is going to turn your kid into a liberal jackass.

There are a bunch of articles and videos that show people using TikTok on iOS 14, and apparently the next iPhone update (iOS 14) has some anti-spying features? Or maybe it's just a debugging mode?

In either case, the OS was throwing up all kinds of alarms that TikTok was tracking keystrokes and all kinds of input and sending it to their servers, even when the user wasn't doing anything in TikTok.

To your question: I have no idea what they would want with data from kids, but if it scrapes data and contacts of any phone it's installed on, it could be a huge problem for anyone that communicates with anyone that has TikTok on their phone.

I'm not the smartest IT guy around though, and I'm sure any one of our other smart nerdy tech guys could correct me.

I found this quote:

quote:
Reddit CEO Steve Huffman called TikTok "spyware" at a one-day conference called "Social 2030" on Thursday, saying, "I look at that app as so fundamentally parasitic — that it’s always listening. The fingerprinting technology they use is truly terrifying, and I could not bring myself to install an app like that on my phone."

He added that he "actively" tells people not to install the app on their phones.


Plus Tik Tok is Chinese owned, the Communist Government lawfully has access to all data generated by the app, scooped up even when the app is off.

Reno Gazette: Recap: Assembly passes divisive mail-in voting bill as Nevada's 32nd special session starts

Lawmakers advanced a divisive mail-in voting measure and revisited a tense clash over mining taxes during the frenetic first day of Nevada’s 32nd special legislative session.

Friday’s battle over Assembly Bill 4, the elections bill, comes after a mostly mail-in June primary election that saw some voters wait several hours at one of the “extremely limited” in-person polling places state officials kept open during the coronavirus outbreak.

AB 4 hopes to shorten those lines by guaranteeing every active registered voter receives a mail-in ballot in November’s general election and any future political contests conducted under a statewide emergency declaration.

It would also permit some of those voters, namely the elderly and those with physical disabilities, to request that someone else fill out and hand in their ballot, a practice Republicans repeatedly decried as illegal “ballot harvesting.”

Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske has long planned a return to in-person voting after getting mixed reviews of the state’s first vote-by-mail election.

Nevada’s lone Republican statewide officeholder on Friday confirmed she intended to stick to that approach despite a statewide spike in virus cases, explaining she would need a budget bump of up to $5 million to pay for a second all-mail election.

But Democrats, seen as the primary beneficiary of mail-in elections, can override Cegavske under a controversial bill provision that lets the governor, not the state’s top election official, decide how polling places run in an emergency.

The measure passed out of the Democrat-led Assembly on a strict party-line vote after several hours of searing public testimony, much of which was repeated in a late-night Senate hearing that concluded without a binding vote on the measure.
