Colorado GOP falsely alleges ‘systemic fraud’, demands canvas boards to not certify elections

No.1239269 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Even local races are not save from the Fascist Republicans war on democracy.

The Colorado Republican Party is advising county canvass boards to not certify results from the Nov. 7 statewide election, alleging without evidence that the process is a “rigged system” and promoting debunked conspiracy theories on election insecurity.

In an email sent to GOP supporters on Nov. 22, former state Rep. Ron Hanks, who now serves as the party’s Ballot and Election Security Committee chairman, wrote that certifying the election would imply the party’s “acceptance of a disastrous process and declare we acquiesced to their systemic fraud and personal corruption.”

Coloradans voted on two statewide propositions and various local issues in the Nov. 7 election.

County canvass boards are made up of members from both parties and look at data to check for accuracy of election night results. They are in charge of certifying the official abstract of votes by reconciling the number of ballots counted with the number of ballots cast, and the number of ballots cast with the number of people who voted. It is typically a non-controversial and simple process.

Hanks compared the canvass boards, however, to a “facade of citizen oversight and a rubber stamp.”

He also criticized Colorado’s use of Dominion Voting Systems machines and a mistake from Secretary of State Jena Griswold’s office last year when 30,000 noncitizens received voter registration information. Election security experts have repeatedly defended Dominion machines in the wake of misinformation since the 2020 presidential election, and the postcard mixup from Griswold did not result in any noncitizen successfully registering to vote or voting.

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) – All four international border crossings between the United States and Canada in Western New York were closed Wednesday due to a vehicle explosion at the Rainbow Bridge.

Thick smoke could be seen in a viewer video from the scene. CBS News reports two people were killed in the incident. Citing a senior U.S. official, CBS added a car traveling at a high rate of speed crashed into a pylon at the bridge crossing, which was followed by the explosion.

The City of Niagara Falls said the incident involved a vehicle attempting to enter the U.S. The city and the FBI’s Buffalo Field Office termed the incident an explosion.

The Rainbow Bridge connects the cities of Niagara Falls, USA and Niagara Falls, Canada. The bridge is located less than a mile from the world-renowned waterfalls and offers views of the natural wonder.

The Peace Bridge, Lewiston-Queenston Bridge, Whirlpool Bridge, and Rainbow Bridge are all closed in both directions, according to the general manager of the Peace Bridge, Ron Reinas.

The City of Niagara Falls said federal authorities are investigating the situation. The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and New York State Police are monitoring all points of entry to New York, Gov. Kathy Hochul said, adding that she is heading to Western New York. President Joe Biden has been briefed on the incident and is closely following developments.

Protesters shouted chants “GENOCIDE JOE, U GOTTA GO!” as President Joe Biden shopped with family and attended a Christmas tree event while vacationing in his family’s traditional spot.

On Tuesday, the president and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden arrived in Nantucket for a few days’ vacation. The White House told us “The First Family will stay at the home of their friend, David RubenSTEIN, as they have done previously.”

Protesters have followed the president all around Nantucket this week as he vacations with his family.

The grandkids began to trickle out of the restaurant and into Nantucket Bookworks around 3:35 pm – Maisy, Naomi, Baby Beau and Little Hunt were first inside. About five minutes later FLOTUS and Ashley Biden walked in.

Asking if she was having a good time, FLOTUS said: “We’re having a great time thank you.”

C-SPAN cameras caught protesters shouting while the president shopped — and chanting,

“free Palestine, you Philistine”
“Biden Biden
you can’t hide,
end apartheid,
We charge you
with genocide”

Former College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn, a well-known LGBTQ activist, was sentenced to 30 years in prison for pleading guilty to 140 charges related to child pornography.

The charges stemmed from his sharing of explicit images on social media, leading to significant emotional impact on the victims.

Despite remorse and support from some individuals, the judge referred Wojahn to a treatment-oriented maximum-security prison.

“I do sense the remorsefulness,” Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge Karen Mason said.

“And I do know you take responsibility.”

Wojahn apologized in court and expressed a desire to be the person the community knows him to be.

His history as an LGBTQ advocate and his resignation earlier this year were also noted.

Joe Biden Declares 'MAGA Lost' As He Celebrates Republican Election Woes

No.1233864 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
President Joe Biden has declared that "MAGA lost" as he celebrated Tuesday's election results that saw wins for Democrats and a significant victory for abortion rights in Ohio.

Biden took to social media site X, formerly Twitter, and praised the results of elections that saw Democrats rack up notable wins in the Kentucky governor's race and in the Virginia legislature.

"Across the country tonight, democracy won and MAGA lost," Biden wrote on his X account on Tuesday, referring to the Make America Great Again slogan associated with former President Donald Trump, who remains the Republican frontrunner in polls for the party's 2024 presidential nomination. "Voters vote. Polls don't. Now let's go win next year. Donate to join us."

Biden may have been making reference to recent polls from The New York Times/Siena College that showed Trump leading the president in five key swing states.

In a separate post by the official @POTUS account on X, Biden wrote: "Tonight, Americans once again voted to protect their fundamental freedoms—and democracy won."

"In Ohio, voters protected access to reproductive health in their state constitution. Ohioans and voters across the country rejected attempts by MAGA Republican elected officials to impose extreme abortion bans that put the health and lives of women in jeopardy, force women to travel hundreds of miles for care, and threaten to criminalize doctors and nurses for providing the health care that their patients need and that they are trained to provide. This extreme and dangerous agenda is out-of-step with the vast majority of Americans," the post went on.

"My Administration will continue to protect access to reproductive health care and call on Congress to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade in federal law once and for all," Biden wrote.

Newsweek has reached out to former President Trump's team via email for comment.

Based musk calls out satanists

No.1236667 View ViewReplyOriginalReport

Agreeing with an antisemitic post on his social media platform X, Elon Musk endorsed the claim that Jewish communities push “hatred against Whites.”

An X post Wednesday afternoon said: “Jewish communties (sic) have been pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them.” The post also referenced “hordes of minorities” flooding Western countries, a popular antisemitic conspiracy theory.

In response, Musk said: “You have said the actual truth.”

The antisemitic conspiracy theory that Jews want to bring undocumented minority populations into Western countries to reduce White majorities in those nations has been espoused by online hate groups and echoed by Robert Bowers, the convicted killer of 11 worshipers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh in 2018. It was the deadliest attack against Jews in American history.

Musk, in subsequent posts, said he does not believe hatred of White people extends “to all Jewish communities.” But he said the Anti-Defamation League “unjustly attacks the majority of the West, despite the majority of the West supporting the Jewish people and Israel. This is because they cannot, by their own tenets, criticize the minority groups who are their primary threat.”

It’s unclear what Musk was referring to. Antisemitic incidents in the United States reached a record high in 2022, according to the ADL. Although the ADL said the increase in antisemitism isn’t because of a single group, the organization noted that antisemitic activity coordinated by White supremacist groups doubled last year, according to a March audit.

Yet Musk suggested that the ADL promotes racism against White people.

F.B.I. Seizes Eric Adams’s Phones as Campaign Investigation Intensifies

F.B.I. agents seized Mayor Eric Adams’s electronic devices early this week in what appeared to be a dramatic escalation of a federal corruption investigation into whether his 2021 campaign conspired with the Turkish government and others to funnel money into its coffers, two people with knowledge of the matter said.
The agents approached the mayor on the street and asked his security detail to step away, one of the people said. They climbed into his S.U.V. with him and, pursuant to a court-authorized warrant, took his devices, the person said. The devices — at least two cellphones and an iPad — were returned to the mayor within a matter of days, the people said. Law enforcement investigators with a search warrant can make copies of the data on devices after they seize them.
It was not immediately clear whether the agents referred to the fund-raising investigation when they took the mayor’s devices.
The surprise seizure of Mr. Adams’s devices was an extraordinary development and appeared to be the first direct instance of the campaign contribution investigation touching the mayor. Mr. Adams, a retired police captain, said on Wednesday that he is so strident in urging his staff to “follow the law” that he can be almost “annoying.” He laughed at the notion that he had any potential criminal exposure.
