Trumpazoid Convicted of 10 Felony Election Frauds

Yet another Chumph boy arrested and convicted of a felony.

Adding evidence of why there is a high likelihood the election was hacked.

I hope he spends his 5 years in Gen Pop.

Michigan Trump staffer convicted on ten counts of felony election fraud

Brandon Hall (Facebook)

A Grand Haven, Michigan man who worked on the Michigan Trump campaign was found guilty on ten counts of election fraud Wednesday for forging signatures on petition forms in 2012.

Grand Haven Tribune reports that self-described “political junkie” Brandon Hall faces up to five years in prison for signing other people’s names in support of 2012 judicial candidate Chris Houtaling.

The 27-year-old did not take the stand his defense, but Hall’s friend Zachary Savage told the court he and Hall forged the signatures as Houtaling drove them to drop off the petitions by the filing deadline. Savage and Houtaling have not been charged for the incident.

Hall’s case made it to the Michigan Supreme Court in June when the defense argued he should be charged with misdemeanors instead of felonies. The high court overturned the Michigan Court of Appeals, maintaining Hall’s felony charges.

In 2012, Hall was convicted for stealing from a school fundraiser where he serves on the Grand Haven school board. He ran earlier this year for the state House 89th District.

In a statement, Progress Michigan said Hall’s conviction is proof that former Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s recount effort should continue in Michigan.

“Donald Trump has made claim after claim calling the integrity of the election into question, but his Michigan campaign had no problem hiring a staff member facing election law charges,” executive director Lonnie Scott said. “The fact that the Trump campaign and the Michigan Republican Party embraced Brandon Hall is just one more reason to recount and audit the vote in Michigan.”

The American Gestapo

Most law enforcement organizations, at last in first world countries cling tightly to their non-political, non-partisan, and neural image. As well as that of being even-haded and fair. The reason being quite simply – trust.. As we have seen in some of the cases of Murder-by-Cop of black men – It doesn’t always work out that way No system is perfect.

The FBI massively violated that rule in supporting Trump during the election.

The release of information relative to Hillary Clinton’s emails was not only false

The FBI Is About To Get The Power To Hack Millions Of Computers

Congress had six months to debate granting President-elect Donald Trump’s FBI new legal powers to hack millions of computers, and Republican leaders objected to doing so on Wednesday.

That means that starting Thursday, a Department of Justice official will be able to go to a single judge, assert that a computer crime may involve millions of networked devices, and get a warrant that lets the FBI hack all of those devices.

According to three senators who tried to put the brakes on that new authority Wednesday so Congress could at least discuss it, there are no concrete assurances from law enforcement officials that privacy won’t be violated or that devices won’t be damaged. Nor was there any explanation of how authorities will hack Americans’ wired equipment.

“At midnight tonight, this Senate will make one of the biggest mistakes in surveillance policy in years and years,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), who tried with Sens. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Steve Daines (R-Mont.) to offer three measures to delay or rein in the new FBI powers. “Without a single congressional hearing, without a shred of meaningful public input, without any opportunity for senators to ask their questions in a public forum, one judge with one warrant would be able to authorize the hacking of thousands, possibly
millions of devices, cell phones and tablets.”

In fact, very few Americans have any idea that the scope of online search warrants is about to get much broader. The push for the expansion stems from a case in Texas in which investigators were denied a warrant because they could not show that the computer they wanted to hack was in the federal district where the warrant was sought.

That prompted a long review by court officials of what’s known as Rule 41, a part of federal criminal procedure that defines search and seizure rules. They ultimately sent a proposal to the Supreme Court to expand the scope of the surveillance powers. The high court approved the expansion, and by law, Congress had six months to review and approve the change. The six months expire Dec. 1.

When Wyden and the two other senators asked for unanimous consent to bring up various measures to modify the new rules or just delay them for six more months, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) objected.

He said the changes were common-sense steps designed to allow law enforcement officials the ability to pursue new threats in the rapidly changing online world.

“There is a challenge when cybercriminals use the internet and social media to prey on innocent children, to traffic in human beings, to buy and sell drugs,” Cornyn said. “There has to be a way for law enforcement, for the federal government, to get a search warrant approved by a judge based on a showing of probable cause to be able to get that evidence so that the law can be enforced and these cybercriminals can be prosecuted.”

Wyden and the others do not dispute that criminals exploit all sorts of online devices ― from cameras to computers and connected appliances ― to commit crimes in ever-evolving ways.

But Wyden argued that the new powers are far too vague, and there are inadequate protections for innocent Americans whose property could be hacked legally by the feds if officials assert it is “damaged” by malware of some sort that may have been used in a crime.

He raised the specter of a mass FBI hack going wrong, and perhaps further damaging victims of a criminal hack, or even knocking vital systems offline, such as hospital computer networks.

“Legislators and the public know next to nothing about how the government
conducts the searches,” Wyden said. “The government itself is planning to use software that has not been properly vetted by outside security experts.”

The Oregon senator and a couple of dozen others have written to the Department of Justice about those and other concerns, but did not find the answers persuasive. (Read the exchanges here.)

Wyden predicted that when something inevitably goes wrong, the anger will be aimed a lawmakers who couldn’t be bothered to add checks on the new powers.

“I think when Americans find out that the Congress allowed the Justice Department to just wave its arms in the air and grant itself new powers under the Fourth Amendment without the Senate even being part of a single hearing, I think law-abiding Americans are going to ask, ‘So what were you people in the Senate thinking?’” Wyden said. “What were you thinking about when the FBI starts hacking the victims of a hack, or when a mass hack goes awry and breaks their device, or an entire hospital system in effect has great damage done?”

The stupid screwed…

Polling firm CEO: ’20 million Trump voters’ will lose time and half overtime pay under GOP plan

Millions of Americans who voted for Donald Trump are expected to lose overtime pay rights soon after he is sworn in as president.

Tom Bonier, CEO of the polling firm Targetsmart, pointed out on Monday that “almost 20,000,000 Trump voters would lose time and a half overtime” under a Republican plan to reverse regulations put in place by President Barack Obama.

According to Politico, House Republicans are already plotting the most efficient way to dismantle Obama-era regulations. An overtime rule requiring companies to pay time-and-a-half to workers who make less than $47,000 a year is expected to be one of the first reversals.

“We have heard over the past year that it would have truly dramatically bad effects, not just on employers but on employees across the country,” Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL) told Politico. “I can give you the names of a ton of private-sector businesses who will either have to eat that cost or pass that cost on to their customers.”

Exit polls taken during the Nov. 8 election showed that 41 percent of Trump’s 61 million votes were cast by people who make less than $50,000 a year.

Trump Concentration Camps

Here we go sliding into Nazi America.

“Internment Camps”…Concentration Camps.

Pro-Donald Trump spokesman praises Muslim registry, cites Japanese internment camps as ‘precedent’

A spokesman for a pro-Trump Super PAC cited the human rights-abusing Japanese internment camps kept in the U.S. during World War II as “precedent” for the President-elect’s proposed Muslim registry system.

Carl Higbie, a former Navy SEAL and a representative for the Great America PAC, told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Wednesday that he was in favor of the registry, even though it has been rebuked for being modeled after the highly controversial National Security Entry-Exit Registration System put in place after the 9/11 attacks.

“You don’t care that there’ll be some sort of a slippery slope where Muslims may get lumped into some group, and some aggressive law enforcement actor in the future might abuse that list?” Kelly asked.

“We’ve done it based on race, we’ve done it based on religion, we’ve done it based on region,” Higbie responded. “We’ve done it with Iran back — back a while ago. We did it during World War II with Japanese.”

“We’ve done it based on race, we’ve done it based on religion, we’ve done it based on region,” Higbie responded. “We’ve done it with Iran back — back a while ago. We did it during World War II with Japanese.”

In December, Trump praised Roosevelt for erecting the controversial camps and argued that his proposed Muslim registry follows the same thought trajectory.

Carson not interested in serving in Trump administration

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has told President-elect Donald Trumpthat he isn’t interested in serving as secretary of Health and Human Services, a Carson ally confirmed to The Hill on Tuesday.
Business manager and close friend Armstrong Williams said Carson won’t join the incoming Trump administration and would only serve as an unofficial adviser.
Circa on Tuesday reported that Carson had been offered the position, citing Williams. But Williams told The Hill that no specific offer had been made.
“Dr. Carson was never offered a specific position, but everything was open to him,” Williams told The Hill in a phone call.
“Dr. Carson feels he has no government experience, he’s never run a federal agency. The last thing he would want to do was take a position that could cripple the presidency.”
The renowned neurosurgeon was one of Trump’s first primary opponents to jump on board his campaign. He was viewed as one of the likely picks to lead the agency that will work to roll back ObamaCare in the new administration.
Reports also pegged him as a candidate for secretary of Education.
Earlier this month, Trump described Carson as a “brilliant physician” and said he hoped Carson “will be very much involved with my administration.”
But Williams said Carson would only advise the president-elect unofficially.
Carson has been looking for ways to be influential outside of government, including his My Faith Votes, a group that looks to motivate Christian voters.

David Duke and “CNN Jews”

Inspired in large part by Trump, former KKK Grand Dragon David Duke is running for a US Senate seat in Louisiana, as a Republican (although there is some debate on that matter by Republicans)

Its not going well.

Debate night with David Duke: Ex-Ku Klux Klan leader defends “CNN Jews” comment, explodes at “media hack” moderator

The debate started with Duke being called a snake, and ended with him shouting, “Are you going to silence me?

David Duke, the former KKK Imperial Wizard running for a U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana, let out a string of bigoted and violent statements during a debate Wednesday night.

The debate started on a heated note when Democratic candidate Caroline Fayard referred to Duke as a “snake that slithered out of the swamp.” Duke responded by defending his white supremacist views, sarcastically commenting, “Yeah, I’m the bad guy because I defend the people of this country that made our country great.”

Duke was alluding to Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again.” The white supremacist repeatedly characterized himself as a staunch Donald Trump supporter, even referring to himself at one point as “Donald Trump’s most loyal advocate.”

Then, Duke echoed a claim made by Trump on Monday suggesting that Hillary Clinton be executed.

“The lady should be getting the electric chair, being charged with treason,” Duke proclaimed regarding Clinton’s email scandals.

To be fair, Duke’s incendiary remarks weren’t limited to Clinton. When moderator John Snell asked him to defend a reference on his website to “CNN Jews,” Duke argued that he isn’t actually anti-Semitic because he only dislikes the Jews he believes aren’t sufficiently loyal to America.

“I’m not opposed to all Jews,” he insisted. “I’m against Jews or anybody else that puts the interests of some other place over our own country.”

Duke also had harsh words for the student activists who assembled to protest his appearance on the debate stage (many of whom were pepper sprayed by law enforcement). After referring to them as Black Lives Matter “radicals,” Duke proclaimed ominously to his white racist supporters that “It is time we stand up now. We’re getting outnumbered and outvoted in our own nation.”

The debate ended with Duke ranting and raving at the moderator and other candidates (now departing) because Snell clarified that Duke had not been targeted by the government for his white supremacist ideology, but because he had stolen money from his supporters to fund his gambling addiction.

“Let me rebut! Let me rebut! See you’re not a moderator. You’re a typical media hack! Are you going to silence me?” Duke screamed. “I have a right to respond! That’s the problem with this. The federal government targeted me. I have a right to respond!”

Duke never got the chance to respond.
