Poor Mike Pence...After humiliating himself by carrying Trump’s water for the past four years, there’s zippo chance that his old boss will pick him as a running mate in 2024.
That did not stop Mike from trying to win his former master’s approval.
Pence penned on op-ed in the Heritage Foundation’s March 3 Daily Signal, repeating the lie that the 2020 election was rigged and marked by “significant voting irregularities and numerous instances of officials setting aside state election law.”
The former VP knows that is simply not true. The Trump administration’s Dept of Homeland Security called the 2020 election" the most secure in American history."
It found “no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised,”according to its Nov. 12 statement.
“There are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too," it said.
Court after court threw out challenges to the election.
Pence does the nation a disservice by trading in the rigged election misinformation.
He piously wrote in his op-ed: “Every citizen deserves the freedom to support, oppose, criticize, or promote the candidates and causes they believe in. And most importantly, the American people must have the utmost confidence that every voice matters, and every vote counts—or democracy cannot survive.”
Meanwhile, the Brennan Center for Justice, which is affiliated with New York University, reports that as of Feb. 19, legislators in 43 states have introduced more that 250 bills that would make it harder to vote, primarily limited mail voting and imposed stricter ID requirements.
It is not Democrats trying to take away the right to vote, Mike.
Las Vegas Sands Corp. claims it is paying tribute to Sheldon Adelson by selling off its cherished Vegas properties and charting a new path to growth.
The founder/CEO of LVCS made his mark in Vegas, buying the Sands Hotel in 1988 and opening The Venetian mega-casino in 1999. He died Jan 11 at the age of 87.
LVSC is selling The Venetian and Sands Expo & Convention Center for $6.3B.
In its March 3 announcement, LVSC said “selling The Venetian, the property that helped establish Sheldon Adelson and his company at the top of the gaming industry, will be bittersweet.”
It added: “The Venetian changed the face of the future casino development and cemented Sheldon Adelson’s legacy as one of the most influential people in the history of the gaming and hospitality industry.”
The company claims that focusing its future on Macao and Singapore will pay a new tribute to Adelson’s legacy.
Adelson might not have agreed. The next step for LVSC is to drop “Vegas” from the corporate name.
Will that be pitched as another tribute to Adelson?
