President Trump Set To Release Hunter Biden Video On The Same Day Joe Biden Gives Acceptance Speech

washingtonews.today

The media spent the last four days fawning over the Democrat’s weak “virtual Convention.”

Apparently pre-recorded videos that aren’t fact-checked were so amazing, the world was in awe.

They also conveniently ignored the many radical moments from some of the left’s top leaders.

Trump has been cutting through the mainstream bubble, visiting swing states, and live-tweeting during big speeches.

And now, he’s dropping a hard-hitting ad on someone we haven’t heard about in some time: Hunter Biden.

It’s just in time for Joe’s big speech:

The Trump campaign plans to release a new digital ad targeting Hunter Biden Thursday, the same day his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, will accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for president…

The campaign ad, part of a seven-figure buy, will focus on Hunter Biden’s dealings with China while his father was vice president, suggesting he used his father’s position for personal profit.

And here’s a preview with a video they released yesterday, featuring Hunter for a portion of it:

President Trump’s campaign is launching a scathing ad exposing the troubling ties between Joe Biden, his son, and China.

The ad reveals the incredible damage China has done to our economy, highlighting how 5 million jobs have been lost in the U.S. since 2000.

Meanwhile, the ad reveals the glowing comments Biden has made again and again about the communist dictatorship.

The ad goes on to explore how Hunter Biden made millions from deals with China, just as Joe Biden (as vice president) was negotiating with them.

That’s more than enough “probable cause” to launch an investigation. But the Obama administration never did.

Today, the media and Democrats continue to cover up the Hunter/China connection, even after China let loose a global pandemic.

You’d think, at the very least, the press would question Biden on this. Even now, as Biden promises to “end” the pandemic in America—he never ever talks about holding China accountable.

Funny, isn’t it? After all, Biden called a dictatorship that oppresses Hong Kong and Christians “not bad guys.”

Does he really believe that—or has China got Biden in its pocket?

Key Takeaways:

  • As Joe gives his DNC acceptance speech, Team Trump is releasing an ad about Joe and Hunter.
  • The ad reveals how Hunter Biden got rich through China after his father was negotiating with the country.
  • Millions of American jobs have been lost to China, as Biden encouraged and supported the regime.

Joe Biden’s Flip-Flops Prove He’s Not Running His Own Campaign

Out of the 29 candidates who sought the Democratic nomination for president, fate, voters, and Democratic Party power brokers finally worked their magic to push out all candidates except for the oldest white male of the bunch, a man who has spent 50 of his 77 years in politics: Joe Biden.

The quintessential career politician, a man who was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972 (the sixth-youngest ever) and is now a gray-haired septuagenarian, was crowned as the party’s nominee for president of the United States. As such, he is officially the standard-bearer for its ideals.

But after watching Biden over his career, and more closely this year, I’m left feeling like a panelist on the old “To Tell the Truth” television show. Somebody please say it: “Will the real Joe Biden please stand up?”

Biden has been known for a few things over the years: a moderate-Democrat voting record, an outstanding ability to plagiarize (it takes quite a lot of chutzpah to steal another man’s life story), a penchant for telling entertaining and sometimes untrue stories, and an almost unparalleled tendency to say the wrong thing at the wrong time (“Chuck, stand up. … Let them see ya!”).

But after comparing his long voting record to the proposals of his presidential campaign, I’m left wondering if this is even the same Joe Biden.

Joe Biden Flip-Flopped on a Host of Policies

For his history of supporting fracking and other balanced energy plans, Greenpeace USA gave Biden a D-minus score last year, near the bottom of the field of competing candidates. He stood a cautious distance from the Green New Deal and had not taken the “No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge.” But suddenly Joe is a climate-change warrior. His website proclaims it. He will eliminate the two-thirds of our electricity that is generated by fossil fuels by 2035 and enact costly carbon taxes to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

Man Pleads Guilty To Mail-In Ballot Fraud After Voting As Dead Mother In Three Elections

US election 2020: Postal service warns of mail ballot delays

A California man has been charged with mail in voter fraud for casting ballots in his mother’s name for three elections.

Caesar Peter Abutin was charged last month with one count of fraud and one count of fraudulent voting. He has confessed to voting in his mother’s name in three elections.

I am assuming he is a Democrat, as the dead always vote for Democrats.

…So much for safe and secure voting.

Trump recently said:

“I have to tell you, that if you go with this universal mail-in … tens of millions of ballots being sent to everybody and their dogs, dogs are getting them, OK? People that have been dead for 25 years are getting them, you have to see what’s happening. Then you’re never going to have a fair election.”

Currently there are about ten states who send ballots to every eligible voter but the Democrats are trying to increase that number to all 57 states. They also want ballot harvesting and a 200,000 vote head start in every election.

Trump has been taking steps to try to put the poorly run postal system back in the Black and his new postmaster was working towards that but has now decided to make the changes after the election to avoid even the appearance of being as corrupt as Pelosi and et al.

President Trump says that there is plenty of money allotted for them post office but what Pelosi really wants from the con game she is running is money to bail out poorly run Democratic cities and states.

From The Gateway Pundit

Trump also said he would support extending voting to include the weekend before Election Day and adding additional voting booths to ease crowding. “I would support all of that. That’s what you want to do,” Trump said. “I would be for opening more voting booths.

And the president said he’s OK with absentee voting. “I totally support that,” Trump responded. “That’s a great thing.”

“The U.S. Government is committed to protecting human life before and after birth,” says USAID in Review of Pro-Life Policy

‘Take Sportswashing out of EPL’ – Amnesty International

The United States Agency for International Development released a Review of the Policy that prevents taxpayer dollars from going toward international organizations that perform or promote abortion, quoting President Trump that the U.S. will “never tire of defending innocent life.”

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) released a report Tuesday, reviewing the success of the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA) Policy, which ensures that U.S. taxpayer funding is withheld from international organizations who promote or perform abortions.

The PLGHA Policy was enacted by the Trump Administration in 2017. After he entered office, Trump restored the Mexico State Policy – a policy first enacted in 1984 under the Reagan Administration to prevent global organizations promoting abortion from receiving taxpayer money.

After being declared constitutional, the policy has since been revoked and reinstated over the course of five different presidents since Reagan. Clinton overturned it in 1993, Bush reinstated it in 2001, and Obama overturned it in 2009.

President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy as soon as he assumed office, but he went further in enacting the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Policy. The PLGHA Policy “requires foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that receive global health assistance…to agree that they will not perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning.”

“As the world’s largest bilateral donor to global health programs,” USAID wrote in a statement regarding the Review, “the United States remains committed to helping women and children thrive…”

Acting Administrator of USAID announced the publishing of the Review via Twitter:

“The U.S. Government is committed to protecting human life before and after birth,” this Review proclaims.

Of the 1,340 eligible to receive funding from USAID, the Review reported that only 8 declined to agree to the Policy.

Of those 8 that declined to agree, 3 reported that there was a disruption in health care services as a direct result of their declination. In the other 5 cases, however, there was no “disruption of health care or significant delays in the provision of services” and there was a successful transition of activities to other partners.

The Review also called attention to International Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes International – two of the largest organizations fighting for a global right to abortion. Both organizations forfeited their ability to receive global health assistance due to their abortion advocacy.

USAID pointed to the pro-life dedication of President Donald Trump in the release of the Review, agreeing with his statement that the United States will “never tire of defending innocent life.”

“As the world’s largest bilateral donor to global health programs, the United States remains committed to helping women and children thrive…”

Orangutan found on palm oil plantation returned to the wild

An orangutan named Boncel is pictured after being translocated to the main forest from a palm oil plantation, in Ketapang, West Kalimantan province, Indonesia, on August 18, 2020.

A Bornean orangutan found on an Indonesian palm plantation has been rescued and returned to the forest, a conservation group said on Wednesday, the latest example of how habitat loss is piling pressure on the critically endangered animal in the wild.

The male orangutan, named “Boncel” and estimated to be 30- to 40-years-old, was found in a plantation in the Indonesian portion of Borneo island with four other orangutans in early August, International Animal Rescue (IAR) said in a statement.

“We found five orangutans (in the area) and we managed to relocate four of them back into the wild, except this male orangutan that still remained in the plantation,” said Andiri Nurillah, a veterinarian working for the Indonesian arm of IAR.

The great ape was darted with a tranquilizer at the plantation in Ketapang, West Kalimantan province, before being put in a cage and taken by motor boat on a river to a safer area in the forest.

Boncel was in good condition when found, apart from a fractured finger and other minor injuries, said Nurillah, adding that his move had gone smoothly.

The release came soon after two other Bornean orangutans were rescued from captivity on Java island and sent to a rehabilitation center on Borneo to assess whether they can be released back into the wild.

Only around 100,000 Bornean orangutans are estimated to be left in the wild, according to the World Wildlife Fund, with the population crashing by more than 50 percent over the past 60 years.

The animals have suffered from illegal poaching, as well as destruction of habitat due to large-scale logging and replacement of forests with cash crops such as palm oil.

Nancy Pelosi Humiliated In California As GOP Wins Special Election and Takes Back House Seat From Dems On Home Turf – Washington News

washingtonews.today

Mary Deanna Janee

Republican Mike Garcia just shocked the world and humiliated Nancy Pelosi on her home turf.

He just won a special election in California for the House seat held by Dem Katie Hill. For the GOP to take back this seat, in California with all that is going is a terrible sign for Pelosi.

They will spin this loss but they cannot afford to lose a lot of these swing districts or even GOP districts they stole in 2018. Moreover, Pelosi’s performance of late is pissing off her liberal base.

They think she gave a gift to Wall Street in the stimulus bills and they have a point – Pelosi has been promising the left she will get what they want in the next bill, etc. She is running out of time and the left may be running out of patience with her iron-fisted rule.

either way Trump and the GOP win.

Trump said: “Big Congressional win in California for Mike Garcia, taking back a seat from the Democrats. This is the first time in many years that a California Dem seat has flipped back to a Republican. Also, Tom Tiffany beat his Democrat rival BIG in Wisconsin. Two great Congressional WINS!”

From Breitbart:

President Donald Trump celebrated Wednesday after Republican victories overnight in special elections in California and Wisconsin.

“Big Congressional win in California for Mike Garcia, taking back a seat from the Democrats,” Trump wrote. “This is the first time in many years that a California Dem seat has flipped back to a Republican.”

Garcia defeated Democrat candidate Christy Smith by 12 points in the special election for the seat previously held by Democrat Rep. Katie Hill who resigned in disgrace in October 2019.

In Wisconsin, Republican Tom Tiffany easily beat Democrat Tricia Zunker by 15 points for the seat vacated by Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI).

“Tom Tiffany beat his Democrat rival BIG in Wisconsin,” Trump wrote. “Two great Congressional WINS!”

Trump endorsed both candidates.

From Breitbart:

“I’m extremely humbled by this turnout and proud of the results so far and look forward to hopefully declaring victory very soon and getting to work in Washington, DC, for this beautiful 25th congressional district in California,” Garcia said in the 40-minute call with the California GOP insiders.

Gallegly used the word “landslide” to describe Garcia’s likely win, and Wilson predicted a victory as well. McKeon described the beginning of a broader effort by Republicans to find their way back into office in California, a state the Democrats have dominated for many years recently, suggesting this is the beginning of something bigger.

With 76 percent reporting according to the New York Times, Garcia held a commanding nearly 12-point lead over Democrat Christy Smith in the special election.

Assuming that late-reporting votes do not change the overall result, an outcome that seems unlikely at this stage but not yet final or certain given the peculiar nature of California’s mail-in voting system, this would be the first time that a Republican has taken back a congressional seat lost to Democrats in 22 years in California.

Republicans had held this seat for many years, but in 2016, Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton won the district by several percentage points over President Donald Trump.

While former Rep. Steve Knight (R-CA) held the seat that year despite Clinton’s strong performance in the district, Knight ended up losing in 2018 in the midterm elections to now-former Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA). Hill, whose sex scandals involving staffers caught national attention, was forced to resign, setting up this special election in which Garcia appears to be the likely winner.

Founder and Chairman of a Multinational Investment Company and a Company Consultant Convicted of Bribery and Public Corruption are Sentenced to Prison

justice.gov

The founder and chairman of a multinational investment company and a company consultant were sentenced to prison today for orchestrating a bribery scheme involving independent expenditure accounts and improper campaign contributions. 

Greg E. Lindberg, 50, of Durham, North Carolina, the founder and chairman of Eli Global LLC (Eli Global) and the owner of Global Bankers Insurance Group (GBIG), was sentenced to 87 months in prison and three years of supervised release.  Lindberg’s consultant, John D. Gray, 70, of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, was ordered to serve 30 months in prison, followed by two years of supervised release.  Lindberg and Gray were also ordered to pay forfeiture in the amount approximately $1.45 million held in accounts established by the defendants for the purpose of funneling the bribe payments.

On March 5, 2020, a federal jury convicted Lindberg and Gray of conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud and bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds following an approximately three-week trial.  U.S. District Judge Max O. Cogburn Jr. presided over the trial and today’s sentencing hearings.

Co-defendant, Robert Cannon Hayes, 74, of Concord, North Carolina, was also sentenced today to a one-year probationary term.  Hayes previously pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI and agreed to cooperate with the government’s investigation.

“When Greg Lindberg and John Gray offered millions of dollars in bribes to the North Carolina Insurance Commissioner, they referred to their elaborately corrupt scheme as a ‘win-win’ – unaware that the FBI was watching and listening,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian C. Rabbitt of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.  “Today, both men have been held accountable for their crimes, and their sentences underscore the Department of Justice’s unyielding commitment to rooting out corruption wherever we find it.”

“Lindberg and his accomplices, driven by greed, devised an extensive political bribery scheme to illegally funnel millions of dollars to an elected official for the benefit of Lindberg’s business interests.  To this day, Lindberg and Gray remain unremorseful and refuse to accept responsibility for their criminal actions.  The severity of their brazen conduct is reflected in the Court’s sentence,” said U.S. Attorney Andrew Murray for the Western District of North Carolina.  “Bribery of a public official is far from a victimless crime.  It is our duty to the American people to stop bad actors with deep pockets and unscrupulous intentions from wrecking the foundation on which this country proudly stands.  To those that greedily seek to line their own pockets through deceit and fraud, I offer the following advice: Keep a travel toothbrush handy.”

“When the prison bars close behind Mr. Lindberg and Mr. Gray, they will hear the sound of justice, loud and clear,” said Special Agent in Charge John Strong of the FBI’s Charlotte Field Office.  “The FBI will root out any and all forms of public corruption.  We remain committed to ensuring those who attempt to interfere with the integrity of our democratic process pay the price.”

According to filed court documents, evidence presented at trial, and today’s sentencing hearings, in January 2018, the elected Commissioner (Commissioner) of the North Carolina Department of Insurance (NCDOI) reported concerns to the FBI about political contributions and other requests made by Lindberg and Gray, and agreed to cooperate with the federal investigation that was initiated. 

According to evidence presented at trial, from April 2017 to August 2018, Lindberg and Gray engaged in a bribery scheme involving independent expenditure accounts and improper campaign contributions for the purpose of causing the Commissioner to take official action favorable to Lindberg’s company, GBIG.  Trial evidence established that Lindberg and Gray gave, offered, and promised the Commissioner millions of dollars in campaign contributions and other things of value, in exchange for the removal of NCDOI’s Senior Deputy Commissioner, who was responsible for overseeing regulation and the periodic examination of GBIG. 

According to trial evidence, Lindberg, Gray and the Commissioner held numerous in-person meetings at different locations, including in Statesville, North Carolina, and had telephonic and other communications with each other, and others, to discuss Lindberg’s request for the personnel change in exchange for millions of dollars, and to devise a plan on how to funnel campaign contributions to the Commissioner anonymously.  In order to conceal the bribery scheme, at the direction of Lindberg, two corporate entities were set-up to form an independent expenditure committee with the purpose of supporting the Commissioner’s re-election campaign, and Lindberg funded the entities with $1.5 million as promised to the Commissioner.  In addition, at Lindberg and Gray’s direction, Hayes caused the transfer of $250,000 from monies Lindberg had previously contributed to a North Carolina state party of which Hayes was chairman, to the Commissioner’s re-election campaign.

According to admissions Hayes made in connection with his guilty plea, on or about Aug. 28, 2018, Hayes falsely stated to FBI agents that he had never spoken with the NCDOI Commissioner about personnel or personnel problems at NCDOI, or about Lindberg or Gray.  Hayes further admitted that, at the time he made the materially false statements, Hayes knew that it was unlawful to lie to the FBI, and knew that his statements were false because Hayes had in fact spoken with the NCDOI Commissioner about Lindberg and Gray, and about Lindberg’s request that the Commissioner move certain personnel within NCDOI.  

The FBI’s Charlotte field office investigated the case.

Trial Attorney James C. Mann of the Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section and Assistant U.S. Attorneys William T. Stetzer and Dana O. Washington of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina prosecuted the case.

Task Forces Nabs Ohio Priest Accused of Sex Trafficking For Decades

breaking911.com

The Cleveland Division of the FBI—Lima Resident Agency, and the United States Attorney’s Office—Northern District of Ohio, announce the federal arrest of Michael Zacharias, age 53, of Findlay, Ohio.

Zacharias is federally charged with coercion and enticement, sex trafficking of a minor, and sex trafficking of an adult by force, fraud, or coercion. Zacharias was taken into custody today, August 18, 2020, without incident at his residence by members of the Northwest Ohio Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force.

According to the complaint, investigators, at this time, are aware Zacharias has engaged in sexual conduct with minors since the late 1990’s.

Father Michael Zacharias was a priest at St. Michael the Archangel Parish in Findlay. He has been placed on leave by the Diocese of Toledo.

The FBI is encouraging anyone that has had contact with Michael Zacharias where they may have been “groomed” for possible future sexual purposes, they were inappropriately touched, or they were sexually assaulted by Michael Zacharias to contact the FBI at (216) 622-6842. All information will be strictly confidential.

Fifth Defendant Faces Federal Charges For Alleged Role In Salt Lake City Police Department Vehicle Arson Case

justice.gov

SALT LAKE CITY – A federal complaint unsealed Wednesday charges a fifth individual with one count of using fire and explosives to damage and destroy a Salt Lake City Police Department patrol car during May 30, 2020, riots in Salt Lake City.  

Larry Raynold Williams, Jr., 22, of West Haven was arrested at his home Wednesday morning on the arson charge by the FBI and members of its Joint Terrorism Task Force.  The Air Force Office of Special Investigations at Hill Air Force Base (HAFB) assisted the FBI.  According to the complaint, Williams is an Airman First Class in the U.S. Air Force.  He is stationed at HAFB in northern Utah.

During the afternoon of May 30, 2020, a peaceful protest in downtown Salt Lake City transitioned into acts of destruction, property damage, arson, and other criminal conduct. During the riot, a Salt Lake City police officer, driving a police vehicle, became boxed-in and immobilized by surrounding protestors.  Fearing for her safety, the officer fled from her patrol car. Her patrol vehicle was subsequently overturned, vandalized, looted, and then set on fire.  Video footage from the event shows individual rioters using fire and explosives to damage and destroy the police vehicle. Federal prosecutors in Utah have filed arson charges against five individuals allegedly responsible for burning the patrol vehicle.

“Since May 30, investigators and prosecutors have engaged in a determined investigation of those who were responsible for burning the police patrol car in downtown Salt Lake City. Our intent has been to bring consequence to the lawlessness that we witnessed. While available video and photographs played a prominent role in the investigation, solid investigative efforts by agents and detectives made the difference in these arrests,” U.S. Attorney John W. Huber said today.

According to the complaint, video footage from the afternoon of May 30, 2020, shows a white male, later identified by law enforcement as Christopher Isidro Rojas, standing next to an African American male.  This individual, subsequently identified by law enforcement as Williams, was dressed in a black Nike hoodie, black Nike sweatpants, black shoes, and a black gas mask.

Rojas was observed holding a blue cigarette lighter in his hands while Williams held a white combustible fabric material, similar to a tablecloth or bedsheet, according to the complaint.  Rojas used the cigarette lighter to ignite the fabric. Once the fabric began to burn, the complaint alleges Williams threw the material into the window of the overturned patrol car.  The burning material landed partially within the interior of the patrol car and partially on the street.

Williams was wearing a gasmask. Investigators subsequently identified the gas mask worn by Williams as an M50 Joint Service General Protective Mask. Clarified photographs of Williams wearing the mask revealed lettering on its attached M61 filter canister, written in what appeared to be white marker, which stated, “TRNG ONLY.” A lot number was also observed on the canister, according to the complaint.

Williams was also observed unmasked at the riot. Law enforcement officers were able to use several photographs to identify Williams.   

Williams was identified as an Airman First Class in the U.S. Air Force, stationed at Hill Air Force Base.  He was issued an M50 gas mask by his unit for training purposes in March 2020. Markings on the mask are consistent with the markings applied at HAFB. On Aug. 13, 2020, the readiness squadron at HAFB conducted a general inventory check of equipment issued to Williams and other members of his group during an exercise.  According to the complaint, serial/lot numbers were documented for each inventoried item.  The lot number for one of the gas canisters assigned to Williams was identical to the number observed on the gas mask as depicted in pictures taken at the riot. 

Williams will make an initial appearance on the arson charge at 3 p.m. Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Dustin Pead.

Federal arson charges in the case are pending against Jackson Stuart Tamowski Patton, 26, Latroi Devon Newbins, 28, Christopher Rojas, 28, and Lateesha Richards, 24,  all of Salt Lake City, who were charged earlier.  Patton and Richards are in custody. Newbins and Rojas have been released on conditions of pretrial release. Previous complaints filed against Patton, Newbins, Rojas, and Richards have been consolidated in a one-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury on July 23, 2020.

Complaints and indictments are not findings of guilt.  Individuals charged in complaints or indictments are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in court. Arson carries a potential sentence of 20 years in prison with a minimum-mandatory five-year sentence. 

Assistant U.S. Attorneys from the Utah U.S. Attorney’s Office are prosecuting the case. Investigating agencies include members of the FBI’s JTTF, the Salt Lake City Police Department, the ATF and the Utah Department of Public Safety.

CBP Finds $7.7 MILLION Worth of Meth In Truckload of Mangoes

HIDALGO, Texas—Officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations (OFO) within the Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry were busy this weekend intercepting loads of alleged methamphetamine at the three border crossings.

“As these three seizures and the continual drumbeat of recent area narcotics seizures illustrate, the hard narcotics threat at our ports of entry is quite evident and our frontline officers remain dedicated to uphold our border security mission,” said Port Director Carlos Rodriguez, Port of Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas.

On Aug. 15, 2020, CBP officers assigned to the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge cargo facility selected a tractor/trailer with fresh mangoes for further inspection and after a thorough examination, officers discovered 48 packages of alleged methamphetamine concealed within the truck. These narcotics weighed 319.70 pounds (145 kg) and are valued at $6,393,000.

Later that evening, at the Hidalgo International Bridge, CBP officers conducting an inspection of a commercial passenger bus located 10 packages weighing 23.46 pounds (10.64 kg) of alleged methamphetamine hidden within a suitcase located in the luggage compartment. This methamphetamine load is valued at $1,034,000.

Lastly, on Aug. 16, officers working at the Anzalduas International Bridge discovered three packages of alleged methamphetamine hidden with a Jaguar’s battery. These narcotics weighed 15.30 pounds (6.94 kg) have a value of $306,000.

Supreme Court Just Ruled On 2020 Vote – They Denied Voting Rights For Up To 1 Million Florida Felons

conservative-team.blogspot.com

With the November election just months away, Democrats are working overtime to find new ways to get more people to vote. They have mounted new crusades, recently, to get people to vote who have traditionally been disqualified.

In Florida, there was a situation that would allow nearly 1 million felons to register to vote. These felons have finished their sentences, but have not paid back what they owe. A lower court upheld this restriction, forcing advocates to take it to the Supreme Court.

But the Supreme Court denies voting rights to these felons:

The Supreme Court on Thursday let stand a lower court ruling that could strip voting eligibility from up to 1 million Florida felons who have completed their sentences but have yet to pay outstanding fines, restitution and other fees.

In an unsigned opinion, the conservative-majority court declined to revisit a federal appeals court ruling that permits Florida to stop felons with outstanding court-imposed debt from registering to vote as a July 20 primary election registration deadline approaches.

Allowing convicted felons the right to vote has been met with much controversy. Some say these are American citizens being denied a fundamental right. Others say that because they committed a crime serious enough to be incarcerated, they have given up their right to vote.

Conservatives often accuse Democrats of trying to get felons to vote, saying they are urged to vote for liberal candidates. Democrats accuse conservatives of implementing voter suppression, by not letting felons vote.

In the case of this Florida law, felons that have paid back fines and other fees can register. The only ones ineligible are ones who have yet to pay outstanding fines and restitution. These are part of their sentencing, just as much as prison time.

To allow them to vote appears to be letting them off the hook. According to reports, there are roughly one million former felons in the state of Florida who have yet to pay back what they owe. This appears to be less about “voter suppression” and more about getting people to finish their debt to society.

The three liberal justices, Sonia Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Elena Kagan, dissented the decision. This shows how deeply dividing this issue is among conservatives and liberals.

The question of whether felons should vote might have to be left up to American citizens. Should someone be allowed to vote—even if they are still under penalties of law?

Key Takeaways:

  • The Supreme Court rejected a law that would allow felons to register to vote in Florida.
  • Nearly 1 million felons would have been affected—those who have yet to pay off outstanding debts.
  • All three liberal justices dissented from the majority ruling.Source: The Hill

Michelle Obama Fact-Checked By AP, Who Said Trump’s “Cages” Were Built By Her Husband’s Administration

DJHJ Media

John Wesley Reid

Michelle Obama held no punches at the Democratic National Convention Monday evening.

Referring to family separations at the border, Michelle said of American citizens:

“They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages.”

What she conveniently failed to mention is that those cages were built by her husband and with the same purpose that the Trump Administration used them.

The Associated Press, which is largely held to be the flagship example of objective journalism, called out Michelle saying that her point was “distorted”

AP excerpt:

“Michelle Obama assailed President Donald Trump on Monday for ripping migrant children from their parents and throwing them into cages, picking up on a frequent and distorted point made widely by Democrats.

The AP continued to mention Michelle’s amnesia when it came to who created the cages:

But what she did not say is that the very same “cages” were built and used in her husband’s administration, for the same purpose of holding migrant kids temporarily.

The same report alluded to another AP story from 2018 when images of children in “cages” at the border created a hailstorm of rhetorical fury towards the Trump administration. Problem was, as exposed by the AP report, the images were from 2014…during the Obama administration:

The former First Lady has been known to make statements that come back to bite her. During the 2016 presidential election, Michelle threw shade at Hillary with reference to her and Bill’s shaky marriage:

“One of the things, the important aspects of this race, is role modeling what good families should look like. And my view, if you can’t run your own house, you certainly can’t run the White House. Can’t do it.

That was when kindness didn’t matter – during an election. But all other times kindness is important. It makes sense if you try really hard.

15K Pounds Of Canned Soup Recalled

Faribault Foods Inc., a Faribault, Minn. establishment, is recalling approximately 15,134 pounds of canned PROGRESSO  soup product due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains milk and soy, known allergens, as well as beef and pork, which are not declared on the product label.

The cans labeled as chicken noodle soup actually contain a meatball and pasta product. The canned soup items were produced on May 26, 2020. The following products are subject to recall:

14-oz. cans of “PROGRESSO ORGANIC CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP” with a best by date of “BestByMAY262022” printed on the bottom of the can and a best by date of “09JUN2022” printed on the product case.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST18826A” printed on the bottom of the can under the best by date. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered when the firm’s distributor notified FSIS of consumer complaints that the soup contained meatballs and pasta instead of chicken and noodles.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ pantries. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Five Teenagers Awarded Medals of Heroism for Saving Deputy’s Life

Five Teenagers Awarded Medals of Heroism for Saving Deputy’s Life

Caitlin Bassett 2-3 minutes


Five teenagers were awarded the Medal of Heroism Award on Monday for actions that likely saved the life of a King County Deputy.

Deputy Elliott had been off-duty, driving her patrol car home around 1 AM on July 18th when she was flagged down at the scene of an accident involving multiple vehicles, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. Witnesses reported that a drunk driver, who was stumbling away from the scene, had caused the accident.

When Deputy Elliott approached the man and told him he was not allowed to leave, he put up his fists in a fighting stance and began to struggle with her. At one point she was able to radio for help, but the man then grabbed Elliott’s neck and placed her in a headlock.

It was at that moment that five teenagers intervened. They had been walking by the events when they saw Deputy Elliott struggling to free herself from the headlock.

The teenagers yelled “get off of her” and pulled the suspect away from Deputy Elliott. They were able to pin him to the ground so that Deputy Elliott could handcuff him. 

“Moms and Dads, you should be proud of these kids!” wrote the King County Sheriff’s Office in a Facebook post shortly afterward. 

The suspect was arrested for felony assault of an officer and DUI, and had several other warrants for his arrest.

Deputy Elliott walked away with only scrapes and bruises.

The five boys – Darrell Swilley, Isaiha Sansaver, Dominic Sansaver, Tyran Powell, and Kai Tavares – range in ages from 16 to 19 years old. 

On Monday, August 3rd, Sheriff Mitzi G. Johanknecht and Auburn Police Chief O’Neil presented the Sheriff’s “Medal of Heroism” Award to the boys. In a Facebook post of the event, the Sheriff’s Office said of the boys, “We can’t thank these fine young men enough. They are true heroes.”

Dictator Kim Jong-un orders citizens to turn over their dogs to be used as meat • Pet Rescue Report

petrescuereport.com

Cheryl Hanna

In July, the dictator of North Korea,  Kim Jong-un, announced having a dog as a pet would be against the law. Stating that pets are a symbol of capitalist ‘decadence,’ dogs in Pyongyang are being confiscated and being sent to either restaurants or zoos for meat to solve the nation’s food shortages.

According to the Daily Mail, dog meat has continued to be a delicacy on the Korean Peninsula, and even though there has been a downturn with younger people, there are still one million dogs raised on farms for human consumption.

“Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down,” a source from South Korea’s Chosun IIbo newspaper stated.

Pet owners have little choice even though there have been reports of “cursing Kim Jong-un behind his back.” Anyone refusing to give up their dog could be viewed as an act of defiance by Jong-un, who commonly refers to himself as the Supreme Dignity.

In 1989, pets were encouraged in North Korea and used as a symbol of economic development, sophistication and wealthy families could be seen walking their dogs on state run television programs. In 2018, Kim Jong-un gifted the South Korean president two home grown hunting dogs presenting them as “peace puppies.” Those obviously were the lucky pups.

North Korea now faces a widespread food shortage – 60% of the population of 25.5 million people are included.
