So what has the Lincoln Project been doing that upsets the Trump campaign enough to waste their time on passing opposition research on to joke tabloid newspapers? Here's a sampling. First a funny one, although we're talking about lives, livelihood and health lost, so it is a bit of gallows humor:

Looks like a bad case of sour grapes - so much for the Lincoln project. We already know that one advisor (George Conway)
is a total buffoon. Now one of the Co-Founders was dumped by Trump:

Report: Lincoln Project Co-Founder Was Turned Down For Role In Trump’s 2016 Campaign

While Schmidt said he was simply observing Trump, sources said he “spent the entire encounter presenting what he thought the outsider candidate needed to do to win the election and was reportedly gunning for the campaign chief role,” according to the Post.

^so he was pro-Trump in 2016 and now he's anti-Trump.

That's blasphemous. How dare he change his mind instead of blindly following the cult leader till death.

Nah, he's just another scumbag politician who blows with the wind wherever there is opportunity. If Trump offered him a job tomorrow, he'd take it. Basically a less successful version of Lindsey Graham.

You gotta love a new's site that under the world heading has China, Middle East, and Israel. That's it. The rest doesn't matter/doesn't exist. I particularly love how Israel and Middle East are separate. I imagine there's a geography teacher somewhere going like: "Well that's why I gave her a D. Frankly she deserved and F, but I really wanted her to become somebody else's problem."

The term Middle East is very much a political one and not a geographic one. I remember reading somewhere that original term was coined during British gallivanting in Asia and covered land between Arabia and India which would exclude Israel (Turkey, Syria, Iran, etc.).  IFor a while ME included Greece, Sudan, and Ethiopea. I imagine there is a geography teacher somewhere going like: "Middle East...I'm probably shouldn't be getting anywhere near that."

As far as the website - it's clearly meant to "provide information" on topics for a particular base. The rest of the world may as well not exist.

Just a simpler story really. Sara Carter grew up in Saudi Arabia. Her real expertise is the Middle East having spent a lot of time as a war correspondent.
Pakastan, Afghanistan, etc.

Are we going to have elections in November or not?

You know the dictators handbook says about elections that you only allow one when you are sure to win.

We will have the election, but it'll be rigged probably more aggressively than usual: purging voter rolls, limited polling places in blue districts, more disenfranchisement (see Florida felon voter SCOTUS case). And I wouldn't be surprised if there is cyber attacks from foreign adversaries, and more of Bill Barr's secret police force kidnapping people in unmarked vans. This time from those long voter lines in blue districts in battleground states.

I speculate that despite all of this, if Trump loses, he will blame the pandemic/Democrats for not allowing him to delay the vote.

The Democrats are too stupid and timid. They need to demand funds for election security and tie them to the next stimulus bill, but they won't.
