James O’Keefe-Project Veritas Sting Video Spotlights Pay-for-Ballot Allegations Against Rep Ilhan Omar; plus, Presidential Debate Preview, Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates

DowJones9.28.2020ManufacturedHomeStockUpdatesBroaderMarketSnapshotProgramming Notice: If you haven’t seen the Cavco Industries (CVCO) related report – linked here – check it out. It is a rocket ship into orbit, based on the early data.  It reveals the latest scandal and newest SEC investigation.


Then from the headline, there are barrels of actual and digital ink that have been spilled for weeks speculating about the first presidential debate between the Democratic challenger, former Obama-era Vice President Joe Biden (D) and the incumbent President Donald J. Trump (R). Some have even questioned if the debate would or should be held.

Those questions and more will be answered starting around 9 PM Eastern.

Specifically: “Tuesday, Sept. 29 from 9 pm. to 10:30 p.m. ET (6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. PT) at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.”

Per CNET, “The debate will be shown live on every major network and cable news channel, including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and C-SPAN. You’ll also be able to stream the debate live on YouTube via CBS News (like CNET, a property of Viacom CBS) and other services like C-SPAN.”

The debate will run for 90 minutes and comprise six 15-minute segments with no commercial breaks. Chris Wallace of Fox News will moderate. Debate topics will be announced prior to the event, but there should be plenty to discuss, from the coronavirus pandemic and wildfires ravaging the country to racial unrest, a struggling economy and a sudden Supreme Court vacancy after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” said CNET.

Wallace is thought to be a Democrat but has often been praised for being direct and pointed with question to candidates from both major parties. Time will tell.

Many believe it will be a record-breaking audience. MHProNews will tune in, how about you?

With that part of the headline addressed, let’s pivot to the first segment. The undercover sting by controversial Project Veritas that has video that indicates a purported pay-for-ballots scheme by Representative Ilhan Omar (MN-D). As usual, that featured focus segment follows our quotable quotes, the left-right headlines for today at the closing bell, as well as 2 of the 3 major market snapshot.

Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet



There are those who accuse Project Veritas of deceptively editing videos to make their points stronger. As if mainstream media has never edited videos to emphasize something that they want to feature and downplay something that would be of less interest to their audience?

Some of James O’Keefe led legal victories – which he says they are 7 and 0 in, are found by clicking the image below.




Despite the protests from anti-Trump forces in media and politics that dismiss claims of voter fraud in vote by mail efforts, this video makes it plain that the concern is real.

  • Ballot Harvester Liban Mohamed: “Money is Everything. Money is the King in this World. If You Got No Money, You Should Not Be Here, Period. You Know What I am Saying? Money is Everything and a Campaign is Managed By Money.” 
  • Mohamed: “Numbers Do Not Lie. Numbers Do Not Lie. You Can See My Car is Full. All These Here Are Absentee Ballots. Can’t You See? Look at All These, My Car is Full.”
  • Paid Voter: “When We Sign The Voting Document and They Fill It Out Is When They Give Us The Money,”… “The Minute We Signed The Thing [Ballot] For The Election. That’s When We Get paid.”
  • Ballot Harvesting Triangle: River Plaza Apartments, Horn Towers seniors Community and 980 Hennepin Polling Site All Subject to Fraud
  • Minneapolis Somali Community Insider: “It’s an Open Secret” … “She [Ilhan Omar] Will Do Anything That She Can Do To Get Elected and She [Omar] Has Hundreds of People on The Streets Doing That.”
  • Seniors at Horn Towers Ballots Compromised; Harvester: We “Request” Ballots For The Seniors and Then Take Them Away.

[Minneapolis–Sept. 27, 2020] Project Veritas investigators revealed a ballot harvesting scheme here involving clan and political allies and associates of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) in the first of a series of reports.

Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” said Liban Mohamed in a series of Snapchat videos posted July 1 and July 2 on his own Snapchat profile.

Mohamed said he was collecting the ballots to help his brother win the city’s Aug. 11 special election for a vacant Ward 6 city council race—which was held the same day as the primary for Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat. Ward 6 is the heart of the city’s Somali community and the Omar’s political base.

James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, said: “Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities—and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk.”

O’Keefe said, “We are showing Americans what is really going on in one of our great cities—but, it’s not me saying—we have the operators on tape saying it all themselves.”

Nor is this the only such episode in 2020 alone.


More on voter fraud another time, but this video may help bring more focus to the problem.  As a footnote, these issues should not be used as a reason not to vote. There were reportedly voting irregularities in 2016 too, but President Trump won then.  The problem is serious, but it isn’t insurmountable.  Elections come down to turnout and authentic voting. Do your part and do it lawfully.
