"The executive power in our government is not the only, perhaps not even the principal, object of my solicitude. The tyranny of the legislature is really the danger most to be feared, and will continue to be so for many years to come. The tyranny of the executive power will come in its turn, but at a more distant period." -- Thomas Jefferson, Democracy in America
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg told company executives that layoffs would begin Wednesday morning, laying the blame for the company’s missteps at his own feet, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter.
The Pueblo Police Department (Pueblo PD) announced the arrest of Richard Patton, 31, for election crimes after he was determined to have tampered with a voting machine back in June. Officers took Patton into custody on Nov. 3 and subsequently detained without bond at the Pueblo County Judicial Center.
According to a CBS News report, poll workers heard noises coming from a voting booth during the June 28 primary elections after Patton cast his vote. “When a poll worker went to investigate and clean the machine, they saw an error message and notified a supervisor,” the report added. “Tamper-evident seals on the machine appeared to be disturbed, [and it] was immediately taken out of service for inspection.”
Gilbert Ortiz, Pueblo County clerk and recorder, recounted the events leading to the discovery of Patton’s tampering.
An illegal alien accused of killing a 77-year-old Army National Guard veteran has become the face of a ballot initiative in Massachusetts where voters will decide whether to grant driver’s licenses to illegal aliens — turning the state’s roads into a sanctuary.
In May, Gov. Charlie Baker (R) vetoed the legislation that allows eligible illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses in Massachusetts. Democrats, with majorities in the state legislature, overrode Baker’s veto, putting the legislation on track to become law in 2023.
As Breitbart News chronicled, grassroots activists worked to get the law on this year’s midterm election ballot — known as Question 4 — so that Massachusetts voters can decide on Tuesday whether they want to give driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.
Everton Candido, a 19-year-old illegal alien from Brazil, has quickly become the face of the ballot initiative after he was arrested for allegedly killing 77-year-old Walter Wishoski Jr., a veteran of the Army National Guard who was born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts.
Candido, who was driving without a license, allegedly killed Wishoski in a fatal crash.
With many regions of the country reporting record turnouts for midterm elections on Tuesday, what we’ve also seen is an alarmingly large number of problems with voting machines, tabulators, and cyberattacks.
The problems began early in Maricopa County, Ariz., for instance, where reports claimed that one-in-five polling sites, or 20 percent, were experiencing “‘issues’ with tabulation machines just hours after Election Day polls opened,” reported Fox News Digital.
“This started with a single location. Then a few. Now, it’s sounding as if this is widespread and very serious,” he began in a post containing a video clip of what appears to be an election official explaining that voters who could not get a machine to accept their ballot could simply drop them off in a box to be ‘counted later.’
President Trump lit into reports that Maricopa County, Arizona has been having vote tabulation problems on Tuesday, declaring that the “people will not stand for it!!!”
“Reports are coming in from Arizona that the Voting Machines are not properly working in predominantly Republican/Conservative areas,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Can this possibly be true when a vast majority of Republicans waited for today to Vote? Here we go again? The people will not stand for it!!!”
The Kiev government is in the process of orchestrating a provocation involving a dirty bomb or a nuclear power plant incident, Russian Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said in an article published on Wednesday.
"Today we face the threat of a radiation disaster. Kiev is planning to commit a provocation by exploding a 'dirty bomb.' Detonation of such radiological explosive device will have the magnitude comparable to an explosion of a low-yield nuclear weapon. The blast wave will disperse radioactive substances over the area of up to several thousand square meters. Contaminated territories will turn into an exclusion zone for 30-50 years," the ambassador said in an article, posted on the embassy’s official Telegram channel.
According to him, the task of creating a dirty bomb was assigned to two Ukrainian organizations.
Here is how useless sanctions are: Bloomberg reports that the U.S. government is actually asking big banks to keep working with Russia so that the economy doesn’t collapse. Isn’t that an admission that sanctions are a decorative sham, only made to let politicians grandstand? I would say it is. Watch the banks basically admit that the government is letting them out of their "tough talk" sanctions as they let everyone else suffer.
It is absurd to blame Moscow for using “food as a weapon” when the people who are making the accusation are the same ones who are blocking Russia from exporting commodities.
Contorted thinking by Western leaders, media and NATO heads seems to know no bounds. Russia has been accused of illegal aggression against Ukraine, threatening to use nuclear weapons, blowing up its own gas pipelines and – perhaps the lowest of the low – using food as a weapon against the world’s hungry millions.
Can Russia be made to appear any more villainous? To that end, Western media is like a parody of a corny old James Bond movie script.
The slanderous accusations ignore the basic facts, such as: that Ukraine was weaponized by the United States and NATO for eight years since the CIA-backed 2014 coup in Kiev ushered into power a rabidly Russophobic NeoNazi regime.
Russia flew over $140 million in cash and seized Western anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles to Tehran in late August, an anonymous security source told Sky News on Tuesday.
The seized munitions include a British NLAW anti-tank missile, a US Javelin anti-tank missile and a Stinger anti-aircraft missile, according to the report. The munitions had been part of a shipment intended for the Ukrainian military that "fell into Russian hands."
The Walt Disney Company missed investor expectations for growth in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022, sending shares plummeting Tuesday afternoon as losses mounted for the entertainment giant’s streaming arm, MarketWatch reported.
As Alastair Crooke recently observed in ‘The World Doesn’t Work That Way Anymore’, the new school of political economy generated by philosophers like Adam Smith, John Locke, and Rousseau premised their systems of social management upon the “science” of Sir Isaac Newton. In his insightful essay, Crooke writes:
“The liberal order rests on three pillars – on three interlocking, co-constituting pillars: Newton’s ‘laws’ were projected to lend the Anglo economic model its (dubious) claim to being founded in hard empirical laws – as if it were physics. Rousseau, Locke, and their followers elevated individualism as a political principle, and from Smith came the logic-core to the Anglo-American system: If each individual does what is best for him or her, the result will be what is best for the nation as a whole.”
The concept of “forces” of the market-place premised itself upon hedonistic pleasure-seeking atomized creatures called humans which seek only to maximize pleasure and avoid pain. Attempting to project an image of scientific authority, this new liberal system situated its roots and even core assumptions upon the deeper oligarchical philosophic current stretching from Aristotle, Hobbes, Locke and Newton.
Clark County officials reported only having enough staff to count early mail-in ballots and in-person ballots on Tuesday, the Nevada Independent reported. The county is appearing to have a resource issue that is stalling the counting of drop box mail.
John Fetterman, the brain-damaged stroke victim who needs a computer spitting out closed captions to understand speech and struggles to speak in complete sentences, was declared victor in Pennsylvania's Senate election late Tuesday night.
In a statement earlier this week, the DOJ said it was sending officials to 64 jurisdictions throughout the country - most of which would be in red or purple states.
Included in the list was Broward County, Miami-Dade County, and Palm Beach County.
Brad McVay, General Counsel at the Florida Department of State, responded...
"(T)he Florida Department of State received copies of your letters to Miami-Dade and Broward Counties in which you seem to indicate that the Department of Justice will send monitors inside polling places in these counties," reads a letter to the DOJ from McVay.
"We also understand you sent a similar letter to Palm Beach County."
"But Department of Justice monitors are not permitted inside a polling place under Florida law," McVay continues.
"Section 102.031(3)(a) of the Florida Statutes lists the people who ‘may enter any polling room or polling place.’ Department of Justice personnel are not included on the list. Even if they could qualify as ‘law enforcement’ under section 102.031(3)(a)6. of the Florida Statutes, absent some evidence concerning the need for federal intrusion, or some federal statute that preempts Florida law, the presence of federal law enforcement inside polling places would be counterproductive and could potentially undermine confidence in the election."
Global Intel Hub is breaking on the ground intel from Red State Tennessee (not a swing state). Shoreline Church voting center near Knoxville, TN, had a line out the door because 'only one printer is working' - one voter reported a 1.5 hour wait once inside the building.
When the poll worker announced the 1.5 hour wait, many voters left. Others made phone calls and other arrangements for staying longer - some complained they only had 1 hour out of work to vote.
Tennessee is clearly not a 'purple' state or a 'swing' state, but if one was trying to manipulate elections, this would be a great way to do it.
People who don't vote, can be later entered as 'voted' and there would be no way to audit that. The voting booths, are secure - but the paper ballots are scanned and sent to a server, we don't know where or how that happens, which could be manipulated
Members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) District 19 narrowly approved the ratification of a labor agreement that has been nearly three years in the making.
Fifty-two percent voted in favor of accepting the agreement, IAM said Saturday. About 59% of IAM’s membership voted. Overall membership totals about 4,900 workers, who serve as locomotive machinists, roadway mechanists and facility maintenance personnel for the railroads.
