>A federal judge, on Thursday, dismissed a defamation case against self-styled Fox News instigator, Tucker Carlson. The case was brought by former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who alleged she had a 10-month affair with Donald Trump after meeting him in 2006 and subsequently sold her story a decade later to the National Enquirer. Though the tabloid never ran the story, it was later made public that the publication engaged in “catch and kill” to suppress a number of skeletons in Trump’s closet. When the story was revealed, McDougal alleged that Fox News host Tucker Carlson defamed her when discussing it on air in Dec. 2018, telling his viewers that McDougal was soliciting a “ransom” in what “sounds like a classic case of extortion” of the now-president and that she “approached Donald Trump and threatened to ruin his career and humiliate his family if he doesn’t give them money.” McDougal said that Carlson and the network that airs him damaged her reputation by broadcasting those falsehoods and sought monetary damages.
>Defamation suits are difficult to prove and prosecute, in part, because broad swaths of speech, particularly speech that can claim to be political speech, have sweeping protections under the First Amendment. When the New York Times reported on the suit in December, Lyrissa Lidsky, an expert in defamation law and the dean of the University of Missouri School of Law, said “the case against Fox News could come down to whether a reasonable viewer would think Mr. Carlson was accusing Ms. McDougal of a crime.”

The city of San Francisco has sued 28 alleged drug dealers it says openly ply their trade in a section of the Tenderloin neighborhood.

City officials have said the area covered by the lawsuit is a frequent site of public drug use, according to The Associated Press.

“You see people who are pushing strollers, mothers who have to go out onto the streets and go around the drug dealing, and the drug using,” Mayor London Breed (D) said. “San Francisco has become the place to go to sell drugs, it is known widely, and that has got to stop.”

The lawsuits would bar the defendants from 50 blocks of the Tenderloin and a section of the adjacent South of Market neighborhood, the AP reported. Violations could bring $6,000 fines, arrests on misdemeanor charges and seizure of their assets.

>Billionaire and former Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg has helped raise more than $20 million to help felons released from prison register to vote in Florida, a key battleground state in the upcoming general election.

>Bloomberg contributed to an influx of funds received by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, which says it has raised more than $20 million to pay the court debts of thousands of felons in Florida after a federal appeals court ruled this month that the former prisoners will not be able to vote until they pay fees and fines they owe to the state.

>“The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” Bloomberg said in a statement. “Working together with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, we are determined to end disenfranchisement and the discrimination that has always driven it.”

>The former New York City mayor and others including singer John Legend contributed to the coalition’s massive fundraising effort as the October 5 deadline to register to vote in Florida approaches. The coalition says it has paid the court debts of nearly 5,000 convicted felons so far. Nearly 775,000 felons in the state are estimated to owe court debts and are barred from voting by the restrictions put in place by the Republican-controlled Florida legislature.

>“This outpouring of support for returning citizens is reminiscent of the type of support we received from people from all walks of life during our Amendment 4 campaign,” said Desmond Meade, the coalition’s executive director, referring to the 2018 ballot initiative that scrapped the lifetime voting ban on most felons.

>stop making money off prisoners!
>the 15th and 24th amendment exist

Why is this an issue? If anything, it's more constitutionally consistent to have the fees paid for than denying someone the right the vote due to fees
>its ok to have slave labor as long as the slave did something bad first *wink
with democrats releasing and empowering murders, arsonists, and such wouldn't it be better to just make all felonies a capital offense, need to streamline the appeals process too, three trials (the original and two appeals) and then the noose

The missile, believed to have been first used in 2017 to kill al-Qaida’s then No 2 leader, Abu Khayr al Masri, in Idlib province, first came to wider attention when its existence was disclosed by an article in the Wall Street Journal last year.

The weapon uses a combination of the force of 100lb of dense material flying at high speed and six attached blades which deploy before impact to crush and slice its victims.

The bladed, non-explosive version of the Hellfire missile is the latest iteration of a weapon that has undergone several variations since it was used to weaponize previously unarmed Predator drones in around 2000.

The first Hellfires were designed as tank busters with a powerful shaped charge, used in Afghanistan for which they were regarded as not entirely suitable.

A later version was developed that carried a heavier explosive warhead , but which led in turn to issues with civilian casualties, leading to the development of the R9X.

why not just use depleted uranium for the outer casing, it's cheap, very dense, and it's a glassy metal so lots of sharp shrapnel


During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump was burdened with lawsuits that accused him and his Trump University of defrauding students who had paid thousands of dollars to learn the supposed secrets of Trump’s financial success. Though the Trump U controversy raised questions about Trump’s fitness for office, he managed to score two legal victories in the case as it proceeded. He won a postponement in the trial until after Election Day, and he managed to seal the video of a six-hour deposition he gave in the case. That meant voters would not see news reports of Trump on the stand in a federal civil fraud case or be able to watch this footage of Trump being questioned concerning allegations of fraud. But Mother Jones has now obtained the full video of Trump’s deposition, and though the written transcript of the session was released in June 2016, the video version includes several exchanges that likely would not have played well for Trump had they become public when he was chasing votes.

Gg boys it was a good run but this looks like the end. It was found that the USPS had a plan to deliver masks to every household in America back in April with partnership of the White House. Trump administration struck it down to not cause a panic, "not cause the stock market to go into a spiral". This undoubtedly would have prevented the spread and mortalities from Covid-19.

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), the first vice chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, is spearheading efforts on a bill to impose term limits on Supreme Court justices.

According to a draft copy of the legislation, justices would be capped to an 18-year tenure versus the lifetime appointment currently outlined in the Constitution. Current justices would be grandfathered in and would not have to step down from their roles.

The bill would have the president select nominees during the first and third year of their term and the nominee would then be approved by the upper chamber.

The legislation comes as both parties spar over President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) vowing to move forward with the confirmation process to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ahead of the election.

While Republicans argue that proceeding with the process is their constitutional duty, Democrats have accused McConnell and Senate GOP lawmakers of hypocrisy for blocking a hearing on former President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.

Proponents of the bill argue it would alleviate partisan tensions in appointing judges to the high court.

“We can’t face a national crisis every time there's a SCOTUS vacancy. I’m introducing a bill to impose 18yr term limits on future Justices. Long enough to influence judicial trends but not so entrenched. Every president appoints 2 per term. Thoughts?” Khanna tweeted on Friday.

The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus topped 200,000 Tuesday, by far the highest in the world, hitting the once-unimaginable threshold six weeks before an election that is certain to be a referendum in part on President Donald Trump’s handling of the crisis.

“It is completely unfathomable that we’ve reached this point,” said Jennifer Nuzzo, a Johns Hopkins University public health researcher, eight months after the scourge first reached the world’s richest nation, with its state-of-the-art laboratories, top-flight scientists and stockpiles of medical supplies.

The number of dead is equivalent to a 9/11 attack every day for 67 days. It is roughly equal to the population of Salt Lake City or Huntsville, Alabama.

And it is still climbing. Deaths are running at close to 770 a day on average, and a widely cited model from the University of Washington predicts the U.S. toll will double to 400,000 by the end of the year as schools and colleges reopen and cold weather sets in. A vaccine is unlikely to become widely available until 2021.

“The idea of 200,000 deaths is really very sobering, in some respects stunning,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious-disease expert, said on CNN.

The bleak milestone was reported by Johns Hopkins, based on figures supplied by state health authorities. But the real toll is thought to be much higher, in part because many COVID-19 deaths were probably ascribed to other causes, especially early on, before widespread testing.

Trump said it was “a shame” the U.S. reached that number but argued the toll could have been much worse.

‘Defund The Police’ Activist Alyssa Milano Triggers Massive Law Enforcement Response Over Gun Threat

Actress Alyssa Milano, who recently became a top supporter of the “Defund the Police” movement, which seeks to disband police departments and redirect funds to “community organizations,” was quick to call the cops, the Daily Mail reports, over reports of an “armed gunman” in her neighborhood.

Fortunately, no one was hurt; the “armed gunman” turned out to be a teenager targeting squirrels with an air gun, according to the outlet. He turned himself in to authorities after realizing he had caused the problem.

Milano, though, who recently tweeted to “Defund the Police” and asked her social media followers to sign on to a petition that “demands a 90 percent reduction in police funding” in the Los Angeles city budget, triggered what neighbors told the Mail was a “massive” police presence after calling 911 to report gunshots on Sunday.

“Alyssa and her talent agent husband … had dialed 911 when they heard what they believed to be gunshots on their 1.39-acre property,” the Daily Mail reported (Milano now challenges that version of events). “They allegedly told the emergency hotline the sound ‘scared their dogs’ and made them feel like the gunman was nearby. A description was given of a suspect to the officers who was ‘male, 40-years old, with long rifle.'”

The couple was reportedly concerned that the alleged gunman could be a stalker; Milano has filed restraining orders against an older man who has broken into her home twice.

Damn that's a good point I didn't even think of. >>697163 You really want community self-policing? Do you really want a bunch of Zimmermans walking around in tacticool gear and AR-15s just begging for the chance to shoot someone? And the best part is who are you going to call to arrest them, the poli- oh.
No don't you see, the Zimunisher kills one of ours, then the CHAZops come and kill him. That's the next stage of our society's evolution, we will truly be civilized when we have vigilante feuds along partisan lines, where concepts like justice and self-defense are arbitrarily decided by mobs of armed radicals.

A white bar owner charged with fatally shooting an unarmed Black man in May during protests in Omaha, Nebraska died by suicide in Oregon on Sunday, according to Gardner's attorneys.

"The family of Jake Gardner has asked Tom Monaghan and myself to share the news of his death today, at his own hand," attorney Stu Dornan said at a press conference Sunday.

The Hillsboro Police Department in Oregon is conducting an investigation into a cause of death after finding Gardner's body outside a medical clinic, according to a news release.

Dornan said Gardner, 38, was scheduled to return to Omaha on Sunday night to face charges in the death of 22-year-old James Scurlock on May 30. A grand jury charged Gardner on Tuesday with manslaughter, attempted assault, making terroristic threats and using a gun to commit a felony.

"Unfortunately, there are two men who have died in a terrible tragedy," Dornan said. "It's a terrible tragedy for the Omaha community, it's a terrible tragedy for James Scurlock and his family, it's a terrible tragedy for the Gardner family."

Gardner's death comes two days after Douglas County District Judge James Gleason approved an arrest warrant but only signed the affidavit portion, the Omaha World-Herald reported. Gleason did not sign an actual warrant, the newspaper reported.

Dornan said Gardner left Omaha after the May 30 shooting due to "great risks," such as death threats.

City of Minneapolis commends heavily armed group of black 'Freedom Fighters' who've been patrolling streets 'protecting businesses, protesters and black heritage' since death of George Floyd

>The Minnesota Freedom Fighters formed in late May in response to the unrest in Minneapolis following George Floyd's death
>About two dozen black men answered a call from the NAACP to help protect businesses from violence, fire and looting
>They patrolled with AR-15s and Glocks and wearing tactical vests and bandannas
>The group has continued to patrol in the community and protect protesters
>Their presence has been welcomed by city officials who say they are 'important' and 'commendable'

An armed group of black men who began patrolling Minneapolis during the unrest in the wake of George Floyd's death have been praised by city officials.

The Minnesota Freedom Fighters was formed in late May after the NAACP chapter in the city's north, predominantly black, neighborhood put out a call for residents to help protect small businesses from violence, fires and looting.

A group of about two dozen men gathered and have patrolled the streets since, carrying AR-15s and Glocks and wearing tactical vests and bandannas.

It's funny because people where I live did something similar after rioting broke out in another part of the city and it was set to come to where we lived, except most weren't even armed and when the protest group arrived all the people out to protect businesses and stuff were called racists.
>who've been patrolling streets 'protecting businesses, protesters and black heritage'
That's cute. What'll be instructive is when they finally shoot someone. Then people will see all the downsides of having your "police" not be actual police.
Unfortunately, their opponents aren't. Arms race
months of protesting and looting

racism solved
> The original call out from the NAACP added that they were tasked with protecting black heritage.

The implication being that these armed Black guys won’t protect Whites and their businesses.

> According to Pew Research Center, 36 percent of white people nationwide own a gun, compared with 24 percent of black people.

LOL, I can assure that a LOT more Black people have guns then that.

> ’The misconception is that we're scary black men with with big guns. We're not,' Jamil Jackson, the group's commander, told MPR News.

And yet when White folks do the same thing, the media labels them as “racist white supremacist Boogaloo Boys terrorists!"...

Taipei, Sept. 24 (CNA) A Chinese military Y-8 anti-submarine airplane entered Taiwan's southwest air defense identification zone (ADIZ) on Thursday, the seventh intrusion since Sept. 16, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said.

The Air Force responded by scrambling jets, issuing radio warnings and mobilizing surveillance and air defense assets, according to a report published by the MND website.

The incident marked the seventh intrusion by Chinese warplanes into Taiwan's ADIZ, following similar incidents each involving two Y-8s on the past three days.

On Sept. 19 a total of 19 Chinese warplanes flew into the airspace southwest and northwest of Taiwan, with some even crossing the median line of the Taiwan Strait, according to the MND.

One day before the Sept. 19 incursions, 18 warplanes from China flew into the area, 12 of which also crossed the median line.

On Sept. 16, two Y-8s entered Taiwan's southwest ADIZ, according to the ministry.
