Majority of Voting Machines Broke in Detroit on Election Day

Fresh on the heels of a Wisconsin recount awarding the Chump a victory…A majority of voting machines, especially those in majority-minority precincts were broken on election day in Michigan.

Michigan officials admit majority of Detroit vote counting machines broke on Election Day

Was it merely old equipment which incompetent officials had failed to bother getting serviced, or was there something intentionally sinister going on? That’s the question now coming out of Michigan, where just as the statewide recount is getting underway, officials are finally admitting that the majority of vote counting machines in Detroit broke on election day. The stunning admission, which is getting virtually no national news coverage despite appearing in a major Detroit newspaper, casts doubt on the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s supposed narrow win in the state.

Even now, elections director Daniel Baxter appears to only be making the admission as part of a convoluted argument for why the ballots in those Detroit precincts can’t be recounted. He’s acknowledging that eighty-seven optical scanners in Detroit simply “broke” on the same day. But he and other Michigan officials are now making the argument that, because the broken machines resulted in different vote totals on the machines than on the precinct log books, state law means those ballots can’t be recounted.

The paradoxical argument, which is on full display in the Detroit News today, seems unlikely to pass the scrutiny of the federal judge who ruled on Sunday night that every county and precinct must immediately recount its votes by hand. But third party candidate Jill Stein, who initiated the recount and is paying for it, would need to take the matter back to the judge.

Meanwhile, the mere fact that fifty-nine percent of the vote counting machines in Michigan’s biggest city all broke on the same day is standing out as a stunning development. It calls into question why officials failed to publicly disclose this information until they needed it for their convoluted argument against recounting the majority of Detroit’s votes. With Detroit being 82% African-American and thus demographically likely to have heavily favored Hillary Clinton, it directly calls into question whether Donald Trump won Michigan.

Records: Too many votes in 37% of Detroit’s precincts

Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of The Detroit News.

Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday.

A Tale of Two Detroits – Trumps Speech at a Black Church

First – in fairness Trump’s speech at a black church in Detroit. Kudos to the Church Members for giving a warm, respectful black American welcome.

“As his remarks ended, church leaders then placed a Jewish prayer shawl upon Trump’s shoulders,” the Detroit Free Press reports.

And BTW – there was a Taco Truck parked outside the Church…

Anti Government Type Sells Wife and Children Into Sex Slavery

Another classic Trump supporter here…This one a member of the extreme right wing so called “Sovereign Citizens

Ryon L. Travis mushot -- (Fox 2 screengrab)

Anti-government crook sold ‘wives’ and 5-year-old daughter into sex slavery from ‘house of horrors’

An investigation into credit card fraud by a self-described “sovereign citizen” in Detroit took a horrifying turn when investigators executing a warrant at his home discovered child pornography, evidence of sex trafficking — and one of his multiple “wives” chained to a stripper pole.

Police called it a “house of horrors.”

According to Click On Detroit, Ryon Lenell Travis, 32, an unemployed father of seven, is being held after police found video of his  5-year-old daughter being sexually assaulted, along with more child pornography, on his phone.

The investigation began as a simple matter of ID theft, with Travis accused of charging more than $50,000 to a credit card belonging to a local business.

But when authorities searched his home, what they found was horrific,  including the child abuse images and multiple “wives” — with one chained to a stripper pole in the living room.

“There was a third woman chained at the neck to the stripper pole, sitting in the living room,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward said while filing charges. “She had a chain around her neck with a padlock on the chain and then a longer chain that connected her to the stripper pole.”

The 25-year-old woman told investigators Travis sold her and the other women online for sex.

“She said that the defendant posted advertisements online and in chat rooms that he had four girls for sale,” said Woodward. “And she said that if she or the other women refused to dance or perform sex acts, the defendant would be violent with them, and that he would hit them with a closed fist, kick them or push them down.”

The child sexual abuse charges stem from photographs that showed a 5-year-old girl engaged in sexual acts with an adult male — with Travis admitting that the girl is his daughter.

At his arraignment, Travis asked the charges against him be dropped, asserting his rights as a sovereign citizen unbound by the law.

“My point is that all laws are commercial in nature and I am a natural born human of the American land,” he stated in court. “Since all laws are commercial in nature and I choose not to do business with this court, I ask that this case be dismissed.”

The court was not amenable to his request and he was held without bond.

Vicious and Depraved Men Beat Cerebral Palsy Victim in Detroit and Paste Crime on Facebook

There is a class on individuals called Sociopaths. People who have no feeling relative to the welfare of others. Fortunately in this case the scumbags were truly stupid – so it is unlikely they will do anyone else any harm for a long long time. This one is only different from the San Bernardino massacre in that the scumbags didn’t apparently have a gun.

‘Cowards’ Beat Man With Cerebral Palsy, Post Video on Facebook

Two “cowards” filmed themselves beating up a man with cerebral palsy using his own cell phone, then uploaded the evidence to the victim’s Facebook page, authorities in Michigan said.

Nikey Dashone Walker and Shadeed Dontae Bey, both 20, were arrested Monday for Sunday’s attack, which took place inside a stairwell at the victim’s Pontiac apartment complex, Oakland County Sheriff’s Department said.

Authorities said two men stole the 23-year-old victim’s cell phone and filmed the attack after he tried to get it back.

A graphic video released by the sheriff’s department shows the men viciously kicking and punching him until he appears unconscious on the floor.

“Record it. Hold on, record it,” one of the men says just after the victim falls to the ground after he appears to try to fight back.

At one point, one of the two men pauses to grin at the camera and boast about what he’s done. He appears to say  the man is “sleeping.”

“Come on let’s go,” one of them eventually says, leaving the victim lying on the ground as they return to the stairs.

Walker and Bey were arraigned Tuesday on charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder; home invasion; and unarmed robbery — all felonies.

Signs of Life in Detroit

Been hearing rumbles of this for a while. The first thing I heard about was some very creative groups working in the area of urban farming, who were leading the country with revolutionary concepts on hanging urban landscapes. It appears that Detroit may be “catching fire” again with creative talent, drawn by the low rent, and possibilities to chart their own space.

Two years ago, the renowned graffiti artist Revok moved from LA to Detroit Josh Harkinson

Detroit may be down… But it ain’t dead quite yet.

How to Bring Detroit Back From the Grave

“Warning! This city is infested by crackheads. Secure your belongings and pray for your life.” So reads a hand-scrawled sign just off I-75 in Detroit, where a post-apocalyptic cityscape of looted and charred homes has come to represent a sort of sarcophagus of the American Dream.

But beyond simply fueling murders and bribery scandals, decades of hard times have finally birthed new signs of life here in the Motor City, as its gritty neighborhoods attract a burgeoning community of artists, hipsters, and socially minded entrepreneurs. “With a little bit of motivation, you can make anything happen here,” says Jason Williams, a.k.a. Revok, a renowned Los Angeles graffiti artist turned Detroiter, whose lively murals adorn walls not far from the crackhead sign. “It’s all about the reality that you create for yourself.”

For those willing to brave the nation’s most dangerous major city, Detroit offers a tight-knit and successful creative community. The birthplace of Motown and techno still manages to turn out chart-busting artists like Eminem and Jack White. And growing numbers of bohemians have found that a few thousand dollars will buy them a classic brick townhouse or a loft in an art-deco skyscraper. Where old buildings have fallen, hundreds of urban gardens sprout.

Detroit is hardly the first city to lure urban homesteaders with access to cheap and artfully crumbling buildings. The same formula revitalized (and eventually gentrified) neighborhoods such as the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn and San Francisco’s Mission and Dogpatch districts. The big difference in Detroit, however, is that its economy blew a rod long ago, triggering an exodus of more than half the city’s population—last year, it lost another 28,000 people. Barely a quarter of those who remain have a degree from a four-year college. During my recent visit, local elected leaders were warning that the city could run out of money—within the week.

Last year, in Guernica magazine, Wayne State literature professor John Patrick Leary cautioned against what he called “Detroitism,” the fetish for urban decay mixed with utopianism, “where bohemians from expensive coastal cities can have the $100 house and community garden of their dreams.” But Detroit offers much more. Here is a city that foretold the woes of America’s middle class—and spent decades searching for a path out of its recessionary wilderness. Forget the clichés about heirloom tomatoes and check out these four examples of creative Detroiters who are making a difference

Police Officer Shootings Reach Epidemic Proportions

I think almost everyone recognizes that the job of the Police is dangerous. But in the last few days nearly a dozen officers have been shot, with several killed in the past 48 hours…

Two Cops Dead, One Wounded in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Lincoln City Police Officer Shot; Manhunt On
4 Detroit police officers shot, gunman dead in ‘horrifying’ attack
Indianapolis police officer shot in face, in critical condition
LA school officer shot near campus, saved by vest
2 officers, suspect killed during Miami shootout
2 dead, 2 deputies hurt in Port Orchard shootings

This is going beyond crazy.
