KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A moment to recognize decades of service by a local Knoxville FBI Special Agent also brought an opportunity for a reunion, dating back more than 20 years, to an encounter that changed one life forever.

Only meeting once before, when the now Marine was an infant, kidnapped from a hospital.

Corporal Stewart Rembert and FBI Special Agent Troy Sowers last met in 1997 during a traumatic time.

“For me, it was all brand new, but this is the stories you hear about the FBI that we’re going out there working kidnapping cases and trying to find the kidnapped person – the victim. So I was very excited about being part of it,” said Troy Sowers.

Sowers was a young agent, barely two-months in the field when he was working a lead on that kidnapping, interviewing someone who had been pulled over, when he decided to take a look at the suspect’s home.

“She still had not confessed to kidnapping the baby,” Sowers said. “In her house, we found some indications that she was maybe part of the kidnapping. We went and talked to her 13-year-old stepdaughter, the 13-year-old stepdaughter started crying and said that she didn’t know where the baby was at.”

Then knowing they had the right person, Sowers hopped in a police car to be taken to where the kidnapped baby was being held.

“Over my 22-year career when people ask me highlights of my career I would always mention this, that I pulled a baby out of a box, but never really focused on it because it’s just one of the things we do,” said Sowers.

this is the kind of news we need.

>Enough with the political hit-pieces,
>Enough of the grandstanding and fake sympathy when shit happens
>Enough of the fear mongering about world events

just post news and stories with some goddamn humanity. Nobody gives a shit about presidential tweets, or North Korean poorly built missiles. Nobody cares when the police shoot someone who deserved it so that we can pretend they didnt.

more humanity in the news.
Totally agree. This board is just /pol/lite right now and as usual very little stimulating discussion to be found. Thanks O.p
: )

Stimulating? Though I agree with you. That's one of the main reasons why I post on this anonfag board. To stimulate me. Like my fuck-bench post....here you go: >>445786

I for one was amazed that the walking dead were capable of moving around in one direction in time to snag the kid. Look at the eyes of this guy, the brain fried from years of pumping loud music into his ears. What disturbs me in particular was that the peasants seemed to wander around searching for milkcrates to bump into the boy with. I imagine it must have been like fending off blind people in a home for the blind.

Disturbing AF. From all perspectives.

I JUST noticed. They pulled his pants down. What is wrong with these people? Is it the adrenaline where they just go mental?

Australians are basically animals.
bringing pants to a knife fight is blasphemy

El mafioso y ladrón miembro del PP sigue cobrando del Senado de España.



(Reuters) - A federal judge on Thursday ordered Georgia to be ready to use handmarked ballots in next year’s presidential primary in case a new $106 million voting system is not ready in time for its 2020 Democratic nominating contest.

In a long-running dispute over Georgia’s voting system, the judge banned use of the paperless voting machines after 2019, but denied a request to bar them for municipal elections this November.

The state’s “long and twisted saga” of voting systems “is finally headed towards its conclusion,” U.S. District Court Judge Amy Totenberg wrote in a 153-page ruling.

Georgia, one of five states to use touchscreen machines with no paper record, has used direct-recording electronic voting machines since 2002. The machines have drawn criticism from various advocacy groups and federal agencies, including U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials.

The state earlier this year ordered a new voting system with ballot-marking devices, which Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has said will be installed in time for the March 24 presidential primary.

Both sides expressed satisfaction with the judge’s split ruling, with Raffensperger accusing critics of using “scare tactics to try to undermine Georgia elections,” and the plaintiffs crediting the court with prodding the state into action.

The Coalition for Good Governance, a voting-rights group, and several Georgia voters, filed the lawsuit in 2017.

IRC during the civil war the Republicans did all sort of shady shit to interfere with Maryland's election to keep it from succeeding
Letting only pro union soldiers go back home to vote , sending soldiers to the polls to intimidate voters , arresting without trial pro confederacy civilians
Yup historically election tampering is a Republican thing.
You bend over backwards for Israel or this or that authoritarian regime enough until they infiltrate your voting machine software and fuck up your voting rolls or influence the count.

Russia has already done it in Eastern Europe and now they will do it here.

Anything that makes elections less representative has been a boon for Republicans because they know they can't consistently carry elections on their policies alone.
>j-just get ID fam i-it's fine

You are idiots. It's not about how the votes are CAST, it's about how they are COUNTED.

Note, of course, that paper ballots do the same job as IDs, because they allow the state to verify a vote versus the registry, which is what you'd be checking when you issue an ID.

Paper ballots solve voter fraud AND election tampering. Clearly the better solution
>they infiltrate your voting machine software
An anon posted how votes are cast in all the states. Only a handful are computer-only. So how, exactly, does this work?
>fuck up your voting rolls
These are paper documents that are dispersed to polling places. Voters literally sign them. (This, incidentally, is the point at which VoterID happens.) So how, exactly, does this work?
>influence the count
You're doing an awful lot of handwavy bullshit.
They don't solve voter fraud since there are many illegals voting in elections they are not allowed to.

Andrew Yang will save Hong Kong and make it a U.S. state. Then I can finally fuck all the Cantonese women I want. I support Yang.
Regardless of his policies, does else fear a civil war if Andrew Yang doesn’t become president? With all the far right acts of violence recently, and the far left arming themselves too. How long before violent outbreaks between the far left and far right and thereby dragging apolitical centrists and moderates into it? Both Trump and Bernie are angry old men who incite this division and hatred. Neither side would be satisfied with Warren, Biden, or Harris and would continue what Trump and Bernie started. Yang is the only wholesome candidate who inspires hope for the future, and the only one who can stop all these violent outbreaks.


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump waded into an internal Republican fight in New Hampshire ahead of his trip there on Thursday, advocating that his former presidential campaign manager Corey Lewandowski seek the party’s nomination for a U.S. Senate seat to challenge Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen.

Trump said in a radio interview that aired Thursday in New Hampshire that Lewandowski, a state resident, “would be fantastic” as a senator.

“He’s got great energy. He’s terrific on television,” Trump said. “He’s a really good guy. I like him a lot. I like his family. I like everything about him.”

Later in the day, Trump took Lewandowski with him to a rally in Manchester, and told the crowd that his former aide would be tough to beat as a Senate candidate but “he hasn’t made up his mind yet.”

Some Republicans in New Hampshire have been vocal about not wanting to see a run by Lewandowski, who built a reputation as a ruthless campaigner before he launched Trump’s presidential bid in 2015.

If he does run, it would set up a potentially bruising primary contest. Bill O’Brien, a former state House speaker, is running, and other well-known Republicans could still enter the race.

Democrats were prepared to begin attacking Lewandowski immediately, a source familiar with Democratic plans said. The party would focus squarely on Lewandowski’s lobbying work, including for companies like T-Mobile and for a Serbian political party with ties to Russia, the source said, asking not be named to speak about party strategy.
“Corey Lewandowski is a shadow lobbyist with a nefarious client list that includes foreign interests, which is why New Hampshire Republicans and even Governor Chris Sununu have been keeping their distance,” said Josh Marcus-Blank, a spokesman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party.

Lewandowski, in response to the Democratic criticism, told Reuters he is not a lobbyist. He declined to confirm if he will run for the Senate seat.

He has repeatedly denied that his work constitutes lobbying. T-Mobile acknowledged in 2018 that he served as a consultant on the company’s lobbying effort to get antitrust approval for the acquisition of Sprint.

T-Mobile is expected to gain approval in the next month from the Federal Communications Commission, which is run by a Trump appointee.

Democrats in Washington also appeared ready to join the fight. On Thursday, the Democratic-led House of Representatives Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena for Lewandowski, demanding he testify before the committee about his time running Trump’s campaign.

Lewandowski was one of Trump’s first aides in his 2016 bid for president. But Trump, under pressure from his children and party officials who saw the campaign manager as too inexperienced, fired Lewandowski and replaced him with Paul Manafort.

Manafort was then fired after reports of his ties with Russia and lobbying work done on its behalf, which ultimately landed him in federal prison.

Lewandowski has remained close to Trump and speaks to him regularly. There was frequent speculation in the president’s first year in office that Lewandowski could join the administration. Instead, Lewandowski joined Avenue Strategies, a lobbying firm founded by Trump ally Barry Bennett.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
After leaving Avenue, Lewandowski was linked with the firm Turnberry Strategies, which was named after a Trump golf course and used the same address as the building where Lewandowski lived. T-Mobile said it hired Turnberry, including Lewandowski, to consult on its merger with Sprint. Even after that disclosure, Lewandowski continued to deny ever working for Turnberry.

Turnberry then established another firm called Twin Rocks Global LLC at the same address as Lewandowski. The firm filed to represent the Alliance of Independent Social Democrats (AISD), a Serbian political party that has worked with Russia’s ruling party. Lewandowski has also denied lobbying on behalf of the AISD.
Trump and his reverse Midas touch.
don't worry, the people appointed by the administration will thoroughly investigate themselves.


A man has been charged with breaking into a Planned Parenthood office in Pennsylvania, smashing glass doors and painting graffiti on the walls.

Thirty-nine-year-old Iain Carberry is charged in Luzerne County with burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct in the early morning break-in Monday at the Wilkes-Barre (WILKS'-behr-ee) office.

Melissa Reed is president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Keystone. She says surveillance images show a man throwing a brick through a window and, coming back an hour later with another brick, and smashing other windows and painting graffiti, including a Bible verse in red.

Planned Parenthood Keystone says in a statement that the act was "aimed to intimidate, threaten and instill fear."

Court documents don't list a defense attorney who could speak for Carberry, and a working phone number for him couldn't be found.
TL;DR Oh look, another case of white christian terrorism.
Final bump


Former Vice President and 2020 White House frontrunner Joe Biden has vowed he will use executive powers and other means to accomplish an ambitious set of campaign promises on his very first day as president.

Here is a list of five proposals that the former vice president vows to get done on “Day One” of a Biden administration:

1. Repeal President Donald Trump’s tax reform law.

Appearing June 22nd before the South Carolina Democratic Party Convention, Biden detailed his plans to combat income inequality in the United States, claiming economic disparities are at an “all-time high and made worse by Trump’s tax cuts and enormous giveaways to the top one-tenth of the 1 percent.”

“On Day One, I will move to eliminate Trump’s tax cuts, as well for the super-wealthy,” he vowed.

In December 2017, the House voted 224-201 to pass the overhaul, with all Democrats and 12 Republicans voting against it. The $1.5 trillion tax bill is the first major overhaul of the tax code in 30 years; it cuts corporate taxes and gives temporary cuts to individual tax brackets that will return to current rates after a few years to help pay for the tax cut.

The tax bill slashed corporate taxes from 35 percent to 21 percent. For individuals, it reduces the top income tax bracket from 39.6 percent to 37 percent and doubles the size of inheritances protected from estate taxation to $22 million for married couples.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Residents of two northern Russian cities are stocking up on iodine that is used to reduce the effects of radiation exposure after a mysterious accident on a nearby military testing site, regional media reported.

The Ministry of Defence has given few details of the accident, saying only that two people were killed and six injured by the explosion of a liquid-propelled rocket engine at a test site in Russia’s north.

Although the ministry initially said no harmful chemicals were released into the atmosphere and radiation levels were unchanged, authorities in the nearby city of Severodvinsk reported what they described as a brief spike in radiation. No official explanation has been given for why such an accident would cause radiation to spike.

It said the run on iodine had occurred in the northern port cities of Arkhangelsk and Severodvinsk and that several pharmacies had run out. Severodvinsk is the site of a shipyard that builds nuclear-powered submarines.

Authorities have shut down an area of the Dvina Bay in the White Sea to shipping for a month near the accident site, without explaining why.

An unidentified naval officer quoted by Kommersant newspaper said the accident could have occurred at a testing site at sea and that the explosion of a rocket could have caused a toxic fuel spill.

Those reports say an area near Nyonoksa is used for tests on weapons, including ballistic and cruise missiles that are used by the Russian navy. Some reports have speculated that the test may have involved a new hypersonic missile called Tsirkon.

There's retards running all over arkhangelsk with geiger counters which I'm sure they got from the radiation jew, trying to find any evidence of higher than normal radiation for days now, so far nothing

If there's nothing that close to the test site, there's not going to be any radiation anywhere relevant.
wow, I knew CNN was a joke, but that's just wow

Retarded news for a retarded audience I guess
Poor effort like this is why you have radioactive explosions happening.
they're working on mininukes, both sides. Theoretically to combat incoming astrobodies.
>/pol/ppet damage control.
Come on Ivan, you can't cover it up forever once the radiation goes eastward.

Personal injury attorney John Morgan has tweeted his support about this issue before.

Personal injury attorney John Morgan turned his attention to legalizing marijuana in Florida on Tuesday.

The Orlando-based lawyer tweeted out his belief that marijuana should be legal, saying, "I think we have time and I think there is money to get it done...Let's do this, maybe! Forget Tallahassee!" Morgan even signs off the tweet by referring to himself as "#PotDaddy."

This isn't a new sentiment from Morgan. In June, he tweeted his support as well but said his plate was full working to get Florida's minimum wage raised, and he can "only slay one dragon at a time."

The push to get an amendment on the 2020 ballot is far from a reality right now.

A group leading the effort, Sensible Florida, has been gathering support since 2016 for an amendment legalizing the limited use and growing of marijuana by adults 21 and older. The group has more than 80,000 valid signatures right now, according to the Florida Department of Elections. It would need at least 766,200 signatures by February 1, 2020, in order to officially make it on the 2020 ballot.

We asked Morgan if he's backing a specific group or starting his own, but he has not answered.

Internet hate forum 8c has gone dark after web services company Voxility banned the site -- and also banned 8c's new host Epik, which had been leasing web space from it. From a report:

>Epik began working with 8c over the weekend after web services giant Cloudflare cut off service, following the latest of at least three mass shootings linked to 8c. But Stanford researcher Alex Stamos noted that Epik seemed to lease servers from Voxility, and when Voxility discovered the content, it cut ties with Epik almost immediately. "As soon as we were notified of the content that Epik was hosting, we made the decision to totally ban them," Voxility business development VP Maria Sirbu told The Verge. Sirbu said it was unlikely that Voxility would work with Epik again. "This is the second situation we've had with the reseller and this is not tolerable," she said.

Does that mean 8 khan is accessible via Tor or other methods?
Anyone know how?
Frankly it's kind of worrisome that it's not back on "clearnet" yet, goes to show just how bad times are getting. Normies with the understanding of a potato have the power to shut down whatever they think is bad. They took down a forum enjoyed by 1000s of people just because 1 guy posted something. Think about how insane that is.

The Home Office in the U.K.'s latest attempt to tackle knife crime has been branded by some as "offensive" and "racist." On Wednesday, more than 321,000 #knifefree chicken boxes have been sent to more than 210 outlets in England and Wales.

The boxes, which will replace standard packaging in chains such as Morley's, Chicken Cottage and Dixy Chicken, are printed with real-life stories of people who have chosen to no longer carry a knife —and opted to pursue pastimes such as boxing or music instead — in an effort to dissuade young chicken-eaters from carrying the weapon.

The office's research shows 67% of chicken shop customers are aged 16 to 24, with participants in focus groups saying fast food outlets are one of their favourite places to meet friends.

The department has been criticized by opposition MPs over a scheme. Policing minister Kit Malthouse said on Wednesday that the boxes will "bring home to thousands of young people the tragic consequences of carrying a knife and challenge the idea that it makes you safer."

As soon as #KnifeFree began trending on social media, many responded noting the stereotypical nature of the program. One user said, "Low key racism?where are the #knifefree cups at Starbucks?" Another tweeted, "Is this aimed at a certain ethnic group? #racismmuch?"

Let me get this out of the way:
>sayan us niggas love fried chikkin is raycis!
>why you ruinin our fried chikkin now?!
It is to develop in people a Pavlovian response so they will associate everyone they aren't stabbing with fried chicken.
The real question is why does a government agency send fast food companies boxes to put food in?
>>sayan us niggas love fried chikkin is raycis!
Who said anything about that? Are you a racist?
how many layers are you on?

Take your pick on which one is worse

Everyone just wants to bitch about how dumb everyone else is, and there isn't a single leader standing up to claim responsibility for building any kind of society that serves any of the people who actually work in it.

Until that changes, its going to keep getting worse. Society doesn't serve people who get smarter, or better themselves, or work harder. Only people who complain the loudest or know people higher up.
