Judge sides with Rick Scott, ‘violation’ of state constitution by election officials

No.311810 ViewReplyOriginalReport

A state judge on Friday sided with Florida Republican Rick Scott in ordering that Republicans be granted “immediate” access to requested information about ballots in Broward County, amid explosive lawsuits against the county’s top election official.

In their lawsuit against Broward, Scott – the Republican gubernatorial incumbent narrowly leading in the state's race for a U.S. Senate seat -- and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) allege that officials there are hiding critical information about the number of votes cast and counted.

In an emergency court hearing on Friday afternoon, state Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips ruled there has “been a violation of the Florida constitution,” as well as the state’s public records act, by not turning over requested records.

Phillips ordered Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to allow for the “immediate inspection” and “photocopying” of the requested records no later than 7 p.m. Friday.

“We are glad that the Broward Supervisor of Elections is being held accountable for this unethical failure," said Chris Hartline, a spokesman for Scott. "Bill Nelson and his rag tag group of liberal lawyers from D.C. keep trying to steal this election, but they won’t get away with it."

Right. It doesn’t matter that he’s not a citizen?" the PV journalist replied, adding that she had heard on the internet that he could not vote.

"No, Don’t pay any attention to that. Bring him up here," the official said.

Another woman, who appeared to be an election official, said that there was not an issue with DACA recipients voting, saying, "we got a lot of 'em."

No.308154 ViewReplyOriginalReport

A 19-year-old student faces trial, accused of raping a teacher at a senior high school in Småland, southern Sweden.
The man was arrested last month on suspicion of attacking the teacher at the school in Nässjö, as reported by The Local at the time.
He is said to have locked the door to the classroom, held the teacher and forcibly pushed her further into the room where he allegedly carried out sexual acts equivalent to rape, the TT news agency reported.
The student is also accused of sexual abuse and of threatening via Snapchat to kidnap the teacher and forcing her to carry out sexual acts.
He remains in custody pending trial and denies the allegations.

With a little under two years left before the Tokyo Olympics, the Olympic budget has quadrupled. Inconsistent budget estimates have left the administration and taxpayers alike scratching their heads as to what the overall cost of the Olympics actually will be.

Earlier this month, the national government’s Board of Audit report revealed a surge in total costs to almost 2.81 trillion yen ($25 billion) with further increases expected as deadlines tighten. This means that, rather than meeting original projections of being the cheapest Olympics, the Tokyo 2020 games are on the way to becoming the second most expensive, after the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics.

Iranian Charity Receiving Bitcoin Donations

"...One surprising thing I discovered a few days is that there is a charity based in Iran which is receiving Bitcoin donations. I was blindsided to see this because I do follow crypto currency news out of Iran, and I even have a Google News alert for “Iran Bitcoin”.

So when I came across this after seeing it on a thread onBitcoinTalk.orgI was surprised. It seems that a group is working independently of the Imam Khomeini Relief Foundation to raise Bitcoin donations using an online store are then taking the Bitcoin donations and trading them for Iranian Rials and then donating the Rials to theImam Khomeini Relief Foundation..."

Trump supports white supremacist terrorism by refusing to fund program that fights domestic terror

Report comes less than a week after 3 domestic terrorist attacks that were influenced by Trumps' rhetoric.
>The Trump administration had already canceled a grant for a group that fights white supremacist terror.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration, which already canceled a grant for a group that fights white supremacist terror, now appears unwilling to renew the anti-domestic terror program under which it was funded, despite recent high-profile attacks like the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and data showing a spike in attacks on religious minorities.

The Obama administration launched the Countering Violent Extremism Grant Program in 2016 to fight domestic terrorism. Managed by the Department of Homeland Security, the program was given $10 million to distribute.

In the last days of the Obama administration, DHS awarded the money to more than two dozen groups around the country to counter violent extremism of all kinds, including right-wing extremism. Data from the Global Terrorism Database shows there was a spike in attacks on American religious organizations in 2016-17.

The money paid for the development of new approaches to prevent terrorism before it begins. Programs that develop training materials for law enforcement, mental health counselors and schools to better identify warning signs of extremism so that terrorism can be averted were designated to receive funds.

Other programs built relationships, like a project that pairs Boston Police Department officers with young Somali-Americans. Another program in Illinois was developing the best ways to intervene with people who are leaning toward extremism before it's too late.

But weeks after President Trump took office, the funding was put on hold.
