Voter fraud and irregularities in Alabama special senate election

CBS News reports that with all counties reporting, the Alabama Secretary of State gave the final vote count in yesterday’s special election in Alabama to replace former U.S. senator Jeff Sessions (who left the Senate to be U.S. Attorney General):

49.92% Doug Jones (D); 48.38% Roy Moore (R)

Pro-abort Jones is the first Democrat to be elected to the U.S. Senate in Alabama in 25 years.

Reportedly, absentee ballots from military service members have still not been counted.

Moore refuses to concede and is calling for all the votes to be recounted. The situation is made more urgent because of a ruling by the Alabama Supreme Court yesterday, shooting down a lower court requiring counties to preserve their digital voting records. In other words, Alabama counties can destroy voting records with the blessing of the state supreme court. The Moore legal team will need to jump on this development fast to protect those records.

Moore has compelling reasons to demand a recount:

(1) The difference between the votes for Jones vs. Moore is razor-thin — only 1.54%.

(2) Democratic voter fraud and other irregularities.

There are allegations that busloads of Democratic voters were brought in to voting stations, as well as calls for “African-Americans” in neighboring states to vote in Alabama.

On November 15, 2017, someone who calls himself “Warren4Prez” posted on Reddit a call for “African-Americans in Mississippi” to go to Alabama on December 12 to vote against Roy Moore. Below is a screenshot of the post (click image to enlarge):

Warren4Prez also had other posts on Reddit calling on “African Americans” in Georgia and Tennessee to vote in Alabama. Below is a screenshot taken by Big League Politics (click image to enlarge):

No surprise: Blacks voted overwhelmingly (94.5%) for Doug Jones, as seen in this tweet by BlackLivesMatter leader Deray McKesson:

Democratic activists also engaged in other shenanigans. Soros-funded organizations had registered thousands of convicted felons to vote in yesterday’s special election.

To begin, candidate Doug Jones spearheaded a project by a Soros-financed legal activist group demanding full voting rights be given to felons released from prison, including those convicted of murder, rape and other violent crimes.

Indeed, in recent weeks, assisted by Soros-financed groups, Pastor Kenneth Glasgow — a half-brother of Rev. Al Sharpton, and an “ex-con and recovering crackhead turned street preacher” — led a statewide effort that successfully registered thousands of felons across Alabama. Glasgow told AL.com that in the last month alone “we registered at least five- to ten-thousand people all over the state”. Speaking on his radio program, Glasgow said that “swarming the polls” with newly registered convicts could swing the vote, pointing as a template to the Virginia governor’s race, where in April 2017 Gov. Terry McAuliffe used his executive power to restore the voting rights of over 200,000 felons.

According to Breitbart, the Campaign Legal Center, ACLU of Alabama, and MoveOn.org all worked to register convicted felons. All three organizations receive financing from such Soros-funded groups as the Open Society Foundations, Tides Foundation, and the Brennan Center for Justice.

This is Chiraq: 7 dead and 36 shot over Thanksgiving weekend

chicago

Chiraq now at 629 homicides and 3,326 people shot for the year.

According to Taiyesha Baker’s logic, those Chicago women sure are raising detriments to society.

From MyFoxChicago: Seven men were killed and at least 36 other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, which began Wednesday night.

The latest killing happened about 9:30 p.m. Sunday when one man was killed and another was critically wounded in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side, according to Chicago Police. The men were standing on a street corner in the 2600 block of West 63rd when three males walked up and fired shots in their direction.

A man who was thought to be between 18 and 21 years old was shot in the chest, and a 27-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to his stomach. They were both taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where the younger man died and the older man was listed in critical condition. The Cook County medical examiner’s office didn’t immediately confirm the death.

About 11 hours earlier, another man was killed in the West Side Austin neighborhood. Mario Gaines, 18, was shot multiples time when another male walked up and fired at him about 10:30 a.m. in the 200 block of North Lockwood, police and the medical examiner’s office said. Gaines was taken to Loretto Hospital, where he died. He lived about three blocks from where he was shot.

Shortly before 8 p.m. Friday, a 22-year-old man was gunned down in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood on the South Side. Officers responded to a call of shots fired and found Hakeem Murray lying on the ground in the 6400 block of South Calumet, police and the medical examiner’s office said. Murray had been shot multiple times and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8:53 p.m. He lived in the Englewood neighborhood.

About 5:05 p.m., 23-year-old Daniel Nash was killed in a Lawndale neighborhood shooting on the Southwest Side. He was in the 1500 block of South Ridgeway when a person walked up, fired shots and ran away, authorities said. Nash, who lived in downstate Fairview Heights, was struck in the head and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead less than 30 minutes later.

Another man was killed at 10:18 a.m. Friday in the East Side neighborhood on the Far South Side. The 22-year-old was a passenger in a vehicle in the 10000 block of South Avenue M when someone shot at him from another vehicle, authorities said. He suffered a gunshot wound to his body and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:09 a.m. His identity has not been released.

At 1:26 a.m. Friday, 27-year-old Daimmyon Hackman was shot to death during a robbery in the South Side Chatham neighborhood. He was sitting in a vehicle in the 7500 block of South St. Lawrence when someone walked up, pulled out a handgun and announced a robbery, authorities said. Hackman, of downstate Bloomington, refused to comply and the robber shot him in his left armpit. He was pronounced dead at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 2:28 a.m.

At 1:35 a.m. Thursday, another man was gunned down in a separate Chatham neighborhood attack. James Jones, 38, was driving south through an alley with a female passenger in the 400 block of East 77th Street when they saw three males, authorities said. He drove up to the trio and the two groups exchanged words before one of the males pulled out a gun and shot him in the head. Jones, who lived in the neighborhood, was pronounced dead at the scene. The female was able to get out of the vehicle and run away unharmed after the shooting, police said. She was not cooperating with investigators.

At least 35 other people were wounded in citywide shootings throughout the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, including a man shot early Thursday on the Eisenhower Expressway. Last year’s Thanksgiving weekend saw 68 people shot across the city, eight of them fatally.

Chiraq: Now above 600 homicides for this year.

From MyFoxChicago: Two men were killed and at least nine other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago during the Thanksgiving holiday.

A fatal shooting happened early Thursday in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side. A 38-year-old man was driving south through an alley with a female passenger at 1:35 a.m. in the 400 block of East 77th Street when they saw three males in the alley, according to Chicago Police. The man drove up to the trio and the two groups exchanged words before one of the males pulled out a gun and shot him in the head.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office did not immediately release details about the death.

The female was able to get out of the vehicle and run away unharmed after the shooting, police said. She was reportedly being uncooperative with investigators.

The most recent nonfatal shooting happened about 4:20 a.m. on the Eisenhower Expressway between Ashland and Racine, according to Illinois State Police. A male victim was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening.

Another man was shot several hours earlier in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side. The 31-year-old told investigators he was walking on the sidewalk about 1:05 a.m. in the 7100 block of South Hermitage when another male emerged from a gangway and opened fire, police said.

Former Seattle mayoral candidate: Security guard followed black people because of white supremacy

nikkita oliver

Nikkita Oliver sees white supremacy everywhere…

Nikkita Oliver, a community organizer and BLM supporter, ran for mayor in Seattle this year. She came in third in the primaries and didn’t make it to the general election ballot.

Since she’s not going to be in the public life, I guess she’s somehow got to stay in the public eye.

From MyNorthwest.com: Former Seattle mayoral candidate Nikkita Oliver says video she took inside a grocery store of a security guard following two black teens is further proof of racism in modern America.

“While I’m walking through the aisle … I see two young black people walk by me,” Oliver said in a Facebook video.

As a youth worker here in the neighborhood, I noticed them. I see them. I gave a little head nod,” she said. “Then I also see a security guard walk by me very swiftly. It wasn’t my desire to get into anything at the Safeway … I turn and I’m thinking ‘Is this security guard following these young people?’ And I see he is following them. He’s following them very quickly.”

The incident happened at the Rainier Beach* Safeway in Seattle. Oliver confronted the security guard and started recording her interaction with him. In the four days since the video was posted on Nov. 12, it has been shared 2,150 times, and has been viewed nearly 333,000 times. The only insight into the video is from a second video Oliver posted two days later. In the second video, she explains how she eventually confronted the guard about his behavior. According to her, he said “I’ve been doing this job for a while now and I know how to spot when someone is going to do something.”

(*In 2015, Rainier Beach had a population that was 31.4% black compared to 29.6% Asian and 22.7% white.)

Oliver said that the young men noticed her confronting the guard and told her that they knew they were being followed.

At this point, Oliver’s Facebook Live video takes over, recording her interaction with the guard who leads her to store management. Those officials explain that they hire an outside company to provide security and then gave Oliver the company’s phone number.

In response to Oliver’s video at the Rainier Beach grocery store, Safeway issued the following statement: Discrimination is contrary to who we are as a company and how we serve our customers and communities. We take the allegations seriously and are conducting a thorough investigation.  The security individual featured in the video is employed by a third party security service, and he is no longer assigned to a Safeway store.

Oliver did not respond to requests for comment from KIRO Radio, or any other media, following the video inside the Safeway store. Instead, she posted a second video in response. Oliver explains that from her recent experiences with media, “stories get spun and get used for click bait, and get used to make us look like we are in the wrong.”

“People are always questioning whether or not people of color are truly being followed through stores; whether or not the stories we are telling about microaggressions and how white supremacy impacts us in our daily lives are true,” she said. “And I wanted to make sure people could see that. I also wanted to actively challenge that because we live in a society; right now are seeing white supremacy and the problems with it and the problems with patriarchy.

Oliver said she has called the security company and Safeway’s corporate office. She did not have any contact with either company at the time of the recording.

“This stuff really happens to our young people, day in and day out,” Oliver said in her video response. “Stores don’t want to take responsibility for it. Security doesn’t want to take responsibility for it. But it’s racist, it’s white supremacist, and it’s wrong.

BlackLivesMatter poll on President Trump: 62% approve v. 28% disapprove

Black Lives Matter on Twitter @usblm has a poll on President Trump, and as of 5:20 pm EST, it’s 49% approve vs. 45% disapprove. LOL

Go vote!

Click here.

UPDATE (Nov. 16):

Last night, at around 9:30 pm EST, the poll results were 62% approve vs. 28% disapprove. By 11:40 pm EST, the poll was taken down. If you go to poll’s URL (https://twitter.com/usblm/status/930792753813999616), you get this message:

Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!

Black Lives Matter deleted it because the poll results weren’t what they wanted. So like the Left. To quote my erstwhile faux-socialist friend Stephanie’s immortal words, spoken so many years ago when I brought up uncomfortable facts in an argument:

“Don’t confuse me with facts! I’ve made up my mind!”

NFL reportedly invites Kaepernick to meet with Roger Goodell

Colin Kaepernick

Kaepernick doesn’t currently work for the NFL. Goodell is a pansy and the worst all-time leader of the NFL.

From MSN: According to this report from ESPN’s Jim Trotter, NFL executive VP of football operations Troy Vincent texted free agent Colin Kaepernick and invited him to meet one-on-one with commissioner Roger Goodell.

Per the report, Vincent’s text to Kaepernick also included an update on the ongoing discussions between NFL players and owners regarding social issues.

As of now, the league has not heard back from Kaepernick about meeting with the commissioner. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said last week that Goodell, Vincent and Arthur McAfee, the NFL’s senior vice president of player engagement, will be asked to surrender their cell phone records and emails as they pertain to Kaepernick’s collusion case filed against the league. They are set to be deposed as well.

Along with the NFL personnel having to turn over their records, other specific NFL team owners will also be asked to do the same.

Kaepernick alleges that the NFL has colluded against him in preventing him from signing with a team.

Kaepernick has been a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March. He made headlines countrywide after protesting the national anthem last season.

It should be interesting to see if Kaepernick takes up the commissioner on his invitation or just defers to the legal system to handle his grievance.

Despite protests, San Francisco police will get Tasers next year

taser

Liberal logic: Somehow this has something to do with Trump.

And why do demorats always desire to give criminals more power?

From SF Gate: The San Francisco Police Department can begin equipping its officers with Taser electroshock weapons in December 2018, the Police Commission said late Friday in a vote on an issue that has been debated and rejected in the city for 13 years.

Following an almost seven-hour meeting interrupted by a raucous protest that led to a lockdown of City Hall, commissioners narrowly passed a measure that the police officers union and several past police chiefs have long supported in the face of strong opposition from activists and critics of the department.

While members of the department’s top brass remained straight-faced during the hard-fought, 4-3 vote in favor of the plan, activists outside the chamber began chanting, “Shame! Shame!” — a sentiment echoed by Commissioner Petra DeJesus, a longtime opponent of the weapon.

“I think it’s incredibly sad in this age of Trump and Black Lives Matters, when our own officers are involved in shootings of minorities and mentally ill, that this commission is seriously considering voting for Tasers after all these years,” she said. “I was hoping this commission would do the right thing.”

San Francisco has one of the last major police forces in the country without the devices, in part because of the opposition from community members concerned about the weapons’ lethality and the potential for abuse.

But those in favor of Tasers, including police Chief Bill Scott, who took command in January amid controversy over a series of officer-involved shootings, say officers need less-lethal alternatives to firearms and Tasers provide such an option.

On Friday, Commission Vice President Thomas Mazzucco echoed Scott’s sentiments, citing a U.S. Department of Justice report last year that said San Francisco “should strongly consider” giving officers stun guns.

“In conversations with many people from the Department of Justice, they couldn’t believe we didn’t have these,” Mazzucco said. “They believe it will save lives.”

The report was the result of a six-month review of the city police force after officers fatally shot Mario Woods in December 2015. Woods, a stabbing suspect who was still carrying a knife, was shot while shuffling slowly along a Bayview neighborhood street, after efforts to subdue him with beanbags rounds and pepper spray failed.

The killing is still under investigation, but following the shooting, the Police Commission revised the department’s use-of-force policy to put more of an emphasis on the sanctity of life, deploying de-escalation tactics and using force as a last resort.

“De-escalation has been a topic that the San Francisco Police Department has taken very seriously,” Scott said Friday, as he made his case for Tasers. “The reality is there are times when de-escalation does not work and officers have to use force as safely as possible. We have a duty to reduce injuries to residents and officers when these type of incidents occur.”

But Commission President L. Julius Turman, who voted against the measure, said equipping officers with Tasers “will derail the progress we have made.” Commissoner Bill Ong Hing, who also voted no, said he had concerns about the studies that found officers use these weapons disproportionately on communities of color — communities with whom the department has been working to rebuild trust as part of the reform efforts.

“It’s the wrong message to be sending to the community to adopt Tasers right now,” Hing said. “It’ll put us so far back in terms of the achievements that this department has made with respect to credibility.”

While Friday’s vote did not delve into policy for Taser use, Scott has said he wants all sworn officers to be equipped with the weapon. As part of the vote, commissioners said officers could not begin using the weapons until December 2018, after the revised use-of-force policy has been in place for two years.

Commissioner Sonia Melara said she received about 100 letters in support of Tasers from community members, and a handful spoke at the meeting. But dozens more spoke in opposition. Activists speaking out against Tasers shut down the meeting for about an hour and prompted deputies to lock down City Hall.

“Please try (a Taser) on yourself before you make the decision,” activist Maria Cristina Gutierrez said just before she went beyond the two-minute allotment allowed for each speaker during public comment and Turman called the meeting into recess.

The activists remained in the room, chanting and making speeches against the weapons, as the commissioners filed out and reconvened in another room.
