Jihadists flood pro-Trump social network with propaganda

No.900948 ViewReplyOriginalReport

Just weeks after its launch, the pro-Trump social network GETTR is inundated with terrorist propaganda spread by supporters of Islamic State, according to a POLITICO review of online activity on the fledgling platform.

The social network — started a month ago by members of former President Donald Trump’s inner circle — features reams of jihadi-related material, including graphic videos of beheadings, viral memes that promote violence against the West and even memes of a militant executing Trump in an orange jumpsuit similar to those used in Guantanamo Bay.

DeSantis's reelection campaign will be brutal — and he could lose

Conventional wisdom among Florida Republicans (and party loyalists across the nation) holds that Gov. Ron DeSantis will cruise to reelection on Nov. 8, 2022. Then with mission accomplished, he will ascend to the virtual 2024 presidential nomination podium a step below former President Trump, the GOP’s strongman and undisputed leader.

More conventional wisdom has Trump running again “provided he is in good health,” reportedly what he told associates back in May. If Trump bows out, DeSantis will be positioned to win the GOP’s “gold medal.”

But conventional wisdom 16 months before Election Day is often proven wrong. Even more so in a volatile swing state such as Florida, where anything can and does happen. Although it is unlikely that DeSantis will lose reelection, it is well within the realm of plausibility. Moreover, it is not hyperbole to state that there has never been a modern gubernatorial reelection with such far-reaching national consequences.

The Justice Department Puts States On Notice About Election Audits And Voting Changes

No.897845 ViewReplyOriginalReport

The Justice Department is putting states on notice about their obligations under federal law as GOP-led efforts to conduct reviews of the 2020 election intensify.

Federal authorities on Wednesday issued a pair of new guidance documents to states and voters to remind them of their responsibilities — and their rights.

The moves are part of the Biden administration's push to demonstrate it is on guard amid new voting restrictions proposed and enacted by Republican-led states across the nation — and as Democratic-led federal voting legislation has stalled in Congress.

"We are keeping a close eye on what's going on around the country," said a Justice Department official, who requested anonymity to brief reporters. "If they're going to conduct these so-called audits, they have to comply with federal law."

First guidance: preserving election materials
The first document makes clear that states are required to preserve election materials, such as ballots, without damage or destruction, for 22 months following a federal election. That's a heightened concern for U.S. authorities after Arizona lawmakers hired a private contractor with no election-related experience to perform a review.

In May, the Justice Department sent a warning letter to Arizona's Republican state Senate leaders, who initiated the review, explaining the state's duties under the Civil Rights Act of 1960 and warning that a plan to have contractors go door to door to question voters could run afoul of other laws that prohibit voter intimidation.

The leader of Arizona's state Senate replied that the proposal to ask residents about their voting history was on hold — but it's recently been floated again.

How critical race theory makes its way into schools

No.895033 ViewReplyOriginalReport
The escalating battle over critical race theory has shone a spotlight on a previously obscure process: how local school districts set the curricula shaping what students learn.

Local school board meetings devolved into emotional and chaotic scenes across the country this spring, as parents joined a grassroots movement pushing back on what they described as attempts to indoctrinate their children on the issue of race.

The explosion of opposition to critical race theory — a catch-all term for lessons and policies that encourage children to see themselves and others almost exclusively through the lens of race — has led to debates over who should influence the classroom agenda. School boards, administrators, parent groups, teachers unions, and even outside activists have laid claim to setting the agenda for K-12 children.

But whose job is it?

Especially post SCOTUS ruling with the cheerleader where they said "fuck" is protected speech, I hope this goes to the SCOTUS and those democrats get shit on. Just another example of dems trying to limit political speech. Bet they would have had no issues with a "fuck trump" sign.

Michael Moore was right,US buys solar panels made from mountains of ChyyNese coal

No.901023 ViewReplyOriginalReport
The West faces a conundrum as it installs panels on small rooftops and in sprawling desert arrays: Most of them are produced with energy from carbon-dioxide-belching, coal-burning plants in China.

Concerns are mounting in the U.S. and Europe that the solar industry’s reliance on Chinese coal will create a big increase in emissions in the coming years as manufacturers rapidly scale up production of solar panels to meet demand. That would make the solar industry one of the world’s most prolific polluters, analysts say, undermining some of the emissions reductions achieved from widespread adoption.

Director Michael Moore's "Planet of the Humans" argues that many green energy solutions rely heavily on coal-burning power plants to function.

Michigan Dem's aide linked to critical race theory push

No.901289 ViewReplyOriginalReport
>One of the aides for Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., serves on a diversity council that has promoted critical race theory (CRT) in education.
>The Washington Free Beacon reported on Monday that the Livingston Diversity Council, where Slotkin aide Mona Shand is board member at large, defends the controversial concept on its website.
>Under the "critical race theory" section, the website directs readers to an article titled "Advocate for Critical Race Theory in Education." "What can we, here in Livingston County, Michigan, do?" it asks before linking to the article by author Nicole Cardoza.
>It also links to a Facebook post that acknowledges similarities with so-called "anti-racist" education and other programs but argues those aren't CRT in themselves. The embedded infographic goes on to warn about anti-CRT legislation.
>"Today CRT is taught mostly at the higher education level. However, there is a growing consensus amongst educators that it should be taught at earlier levels," it reads. "Unfortunately, lawmakers in at least 15 states have recently introduced and have already passed bills … that seek to prevent teachers from using CRT and other anti-racism resources that discuss racism and social justice in school curriculums."
>Slotkin's office did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment. The Livingston Diversity Council said in a statement to Fox News: "The Livingston Diversity Council (LDC) is a change agent for diversity, equity, inclusion, and access that collaborates, educates and empowers to build a thriving community. At this time, the LDC is not advocating for Critical Race Theory, we are only providing educational resources on the topic to empower folks to be informed on issues that may impact them."

Slotkin and Shand are both Jewish, as is Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers who demands CRT in classrooms.
