This story was reported in collaboration with OpenSecrets.

A powerful new conservative organization fighting to restrict voting in the 2020 presidential election is really just a rebranded group that is part of a dark money network already helping Donald Trump’s unprecedented effort to remake the US federal judiciary, the Guardian and OpenSecrets reveal.

The organization, which calls itself the Honest Elections Project, seemed to emerge out of nowhere a few months ago and started stoking fears about voter fraud. Backed by a dark money group funded by rightwing stalwarts like the Koch brothers and Betsy DeVos’ family, the Honest Elections Project is part of the network that pushed the US supreme court picks Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, and is quickly becoming a juggernaut in the escalating fight over voting rights.

I know Daily Snark is a satire website. But this is the only place covering it. Might be fake. But this video of cops drive by spraying pepper spraying random civilians.

This how you incite the civilians to riot against the police?

Fuck the police?

Husband Of Reopen NC Leader Says He's 'Willing To Kill' To Stop 'New World Order'

No.610294 ViewReplyOriginalReport
The husband of a Reopen NC movement leader posted a video to Facebook Friday in which he said he is willing to kill people to protect the country against what he calls the New World Order.

Adam Smith recorded the video while he was driving.
He said that he hoped his children would look back at the time during the COVID-19 pandemic as a time when the U.S. resisted what he called the “New World Order,” a reference to the stay-at-home orders in North Carolina and most states.

“And America said, ‘No,’” said Smith, a Marine Corps veteran. “We’re taking up arms. It’s time for us to fight against this. We’re not going to stop. If you want to go to the full force time, we have the forces to retaliate...Do we want to pick up arms? Do we want to kill anybody? Of course not. Nobody wants to take lives.”

“Are we willing to kill people? Are we willing to lay our lives down? We have to say yes,”
Later in the 17-minute video, he said, “If you bring force, we’re gonna bring force. If you bring guns, we’re gonna bring guns. If you’re armed with this, we’re gonna be armed with this.”

After Adam Smith’s video was originally taken down on Facebook, Ashley Smith reposted it Sunday. She complained that he is under attack by the “liberal media” and said she is releasing the video in full because “maybe you agree with him and maybe you don’t but we have nothing to hide. This group is built on the constitution and that includes free speech and the Second Amendment.”

Adam Smith was also present along with other armed Blue Igloo demonstrators in downtown Raleigh on May 16. Blue Igloo is likely a play on the word “Boogaloo,” which the Anti-Defamation League describes as a slang term for a coming civil war.

Youtube deletes environmentalist's controversial video

No.611483 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Only a month after it was released for free, in its entirety, the Michael Moore-produced, Jeff Gibbs-directed climate change documentary, Planet of the Humans, has been taken down from YouTube — but not for the reason you might think.
Though the one-hour, 40-minute spanning film amassed a great deal of backlash last month — with climate change activists calling for it to be removed from the streaming platform after suggesting it was “shockingly misleading” and “riddled with falsehoods and misinformation” — it was blocked as a result of a copyright infringement claim from a British photographer.

That’s right, on May 23, Toby Smith, the London-based, environmental professional photographer, filed a dispute to YouTube, alleging that Gibbs and his team had violated fair usage by using four seconds of footage from the 2014 short film Rare Earthenware, according to the Guardian.

“This attempt to take down our film and prevent the public from seeing it is a blatant act of censorship by political critics of Planet of the Humans.”
“There is absolutely no copyright violation in my film. This is just another attempt by the film’s opponents to subvert the right to free speech.”

Missouri hairstylist may have exposed 91 people to Covid-19, officials say

No.609535 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
A Missouri hairstylist may have exposed 91 customers and coworkers to coronavirus, public health officials said, after the state’s governor allowed businesses including salons to reopen on 4 May.
The stylist who tested positive for Covid-19 worked at a salon in Springfield on eight different days while experiencing coronavirus symptoms. Because the stylist and the customers wore face coverings, health officials said on Friday, they hoped the interactions would lead to “no additional cases”. Those potentially exposed would be contacted and offered testing, officials said.
The potential exposures started little more than a week after Missouri allowed salons to reopen.

The push by Donald Trump and some state governors to reopen most businesses with some public health modifications, such as social distancing and masks, comes as public health officials warn that relaxing restrictions will certainly lead to new outbreaks.
“A permanent lockdown is not a strategy for a health state or a healthy country,” Trump said on Thursday. “Our country wasn’t meant to be shut down.
“This country is poised for an epic comeback,” he said. “Just watch. It’s already happening.”
