Rodney A. Barber, the person who pled guilty to bribing Democrat party chairman Phil Nichols in exchange for winning a contract to do work for the Muncie Sanitary District, and also giving Democrat official Tracy Barton $5,000 in cash to "illegally contribute" to democrat Mayor Dennis Tyler's re-election campaign, is being sentenced this week
https://www.thestarpress.com/story/news/crime/2022/08/08/contractors-sentencing-in-corruption-case-reset-for-september/65394943007/
MUNCIE, Ind. — The sentencing hearing for a Delaware County contractor charged in a federal investigation of corruption in Muncie city government has been rescheduled for Sept. 6.

Rodney A. Barber, 54, had most recently been set to enter a guilty plea — to a count of fraud — and be sentenced on July 27. U.S. District Court Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson granted Barber's request for a continuance.

According to a plea agreement signed in 2021, Barber will admit to paying Phil Nichols, ex-local Democratic Party chairman, $5,500 in cash in exchange for winning a contract to do work for the Muncie Sanitary District, and giving then-MSD official Tracy Barton $5,000 in cash to "illegally contribute" to Mayor Dennis Tyler's re-election campaign.

The latter payment led to Tyler's November 2021 conviction on a count of theft of government funds. The former mayor later spent five months in a federal prison in West Virginia.
The democrat former mayor spent time in a federal prison in West Virginia.
According to court documents, Barber also has admitted to removing a tree from outside Tyler's northside home "in exchange for favorable consideration" in the awarding of future contracts.

That charge stemmed from a conspiracy — also involving Nichols, MSD administrator Nikki Grigsby, then-city police officer Jess Neal and contractor Tony Franklin — to solicit bribes in exchange for the awarding of Muncie Sanitary District contracts.

However, Barton's sentencing hearing was not held in June, and online court records do not indicate it has yet been rescheduled.

Grigsby and Neal are now serving sentences in federal prison after entering guilty pleas.

Franklin also entered a guilty plea, in May, and had been scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 8. Last week, however, Judge James Sweeney II agreed to postpone that hearing until Dec. 7.

Nichols — described in court documents as the ringleader of the bribery conspiracy — in March signed an agreement to plead guilty, to conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

This isn't about that, or reality even.
This is about Democrats vs Republicans.
In short: it's a slide thread.

https://www.reuters.com/world/us/exclusive-trump-backed-michigan-attorney-general-candidate-involved-voting-2022-08-07/
The Republican nominee for Michigan attorney general led a team that gained unauthorized access to voting equipment while hunting for evidence to support former President Donald Trump’s false election-fraud claims, according to a Reuters analysis of court filings and public records.

The analysis shows that people working with Matthew DePerno - the Trump-endorsed nominee for the state’s top law-enforcement post - examined a vote tabulator from Richfield Township, a conservative stronghold of 3,600 people in northern Michigan’s Roscommon County.

The Richfield security breach is one of four similar incidents being investigated by Michigan's current attorney general, Democrat Dana Nessel. Under state law, it is a felony to seek or provide unauthorized access to voting equipment.

DePerno did not respond to a request for comment.

The involvement of a Republican attorney general nominee in a voting-system breach comes amid a national effort by backers of Trump’s fraud falsehoods to win state offices that could prove critical in deciding any future contested elections.

In Arizona last week, three Trump-backed candidates who claim the 2020 election was stolen won Republican primary elections for governor, attorney general and secretary of state, the top official overseeing elections. In Pennsylvania, Republican gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano has vowed to decertify any election he considers fraudulent through his appointed secretary of state. Michigan, Arizona and Pennsylvania are all presidential election battlegrounds.

B. hack the results themselves to steal elections

>>1080597
Think about this - lets say that these Republicans 100% believed that the election was stolen and were examining these machines for the sole purpose of trying to gather evidence for the crime they absolutely believed occurred. Even in this hypothetical, which is the absolute best case, most good faith interpretation of their intentions, they still committed a felony for the purpose of conducting their investigation. Regardless of what their intent was this completely blows up the narrative that their interest in voter fraud has anything to do with election integrity because they were clearly willing to violate the law to get what they wanted.

"Forcing those who evade taxes to pay their taxes is tantamount to a tax hike'

WASHINGTON — Democrats have ditched their dreams of higher tax rates on individuals and corporations, settling instead for a corporate minimum tax and stricter enforcement of current laws.

Merely proposing that the Internal Revenue Service crack down on tax evasion, however, has prompted a fierce Republican response.

“They’re just gonna go attack every small business person,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) told HuffPost. “We know how the IRS treats people. You’re guilty until proven innocent.”

The Inflation Reduction Act, which Democrats are hoping to push through the Senate without any Republican votes this month, would boost the IRS budget by $80 billion, with more than half of that going toward enforcement and $3 billion of it for improved customer service.

“This is an agency that only succeeded in answering about one out of every 50 phone calls during the 2021 tax season,” Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) said on the Senate floor Tuesday. “Yet 4% of the $80 billion is going to taxpayer services — 57% goes to enforcement, so that the IRS can spend more time harassing taxpayers around this country.”

The U.S. relies on voluntary compliance with its tax code, and the American people collectively underpay their taxes by hundreds of billions annually. Much of the so-called tax gap results from people underreporting non-wage income, such as from sole proprietorships or business partnerships. (Regular wage earners typically have their income reported directly to the IRS and federal income taxes are deducted from their paychecks.)
Since there’s so much tax noncompliance, including through willful evasion, stricter IRS enforcement more than pays for itself. Investing $80 billion in the IRS would yield $207 billion in revenue over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

DALLAS — It was a Trump rally with a Hungarian accent.

Viktor Orban, the Hungarian prime minister who has consolidated autocratic power with hard-right opposition to immigration and liberal democracy, addressed a crowd of thousands of American admirers in Dallas on Thursday with a red-meat speech that could have easily been delivered by any Republican candidate on the campaign trail this year.

Orban presented the two countries as twin fronts in a struggle against common enemies he described as globalists, progressives, communists and “fake news.”

“The West is at war with itself,” Orban said. “The globalist can all go to hell. I have come to Texas,” he added, stumbling over a famous slogan attributed to Texas legend Davy Crockett.

The speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) went ahead despite Orban’s latest controversy: a speech in which he railed against Europe becoming “mixed race,” saying that Europeans did not want to live with people from outside the continent. One of his own close advisers resigned in protest, calling the speech “pure Nazi.”

Sinema Received Over $500K From Private Equity Before Shielding Industry From Tax Hikes

Senate Democrats passed a pared-backed reconciliation package on Sunday, but only after a pair of widely supported provisions that would have made it harder for Wall Street tycoons to reduce their tax bills were removed at the behest of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema—the right-wing Arizona Democrat who has taken more than $500,000 in campaign contributions from private equity executives during the current election cycle.

"Remember the days when taking half a million bucks from an industry, and then passing legislation that only benefits that industry, while passing the costs onto everyone else, would be called corruption?" Brown University political economist Mark Blyth asked on social media. "Today it's just lobbying as usual."

Last week, Sinema agreed to back the Inflation Reduction Act as long as the so-called "carried interest loophole," which benefits hedge fund managers and private equity moguls by allowing their investment income to be taxed at the long-term capital gains rate of around 20% rather than the ordinary top income rate of 37%, was preserved.

Democrats, who needed Sinema's support to pass the filibuster-proof bill through the evenly split Senate, obliged, forgoing a modest reform that would have raised an estimated $14 billion in federal revenue over a decade by increasing the holding period for investments to qualify for preferential tax treatment from three to five years.

The Department of Homeland Security’s internal watchdog last year suddenly scrapped plans to recover missing Secret Service text messages linked to the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, sources have told The Washington Post.

The crucial texts were lost as the Secret Service switched to a new system and new devices.

After learning of the vanished texts, DHS Inspector General Joseph Cuffari’s office initially planned in February 2021 to contact all Homeland Security agencies, offering data specialists to help retrieve any relevant messages from their phones, according to government whistleblowers who provided reports to Congress, the Post reported.

But according to three sources who spoke with the Post, Cuffari’s office suddenly decided later that month not to collect phones or review any data.

A senior forensics analyst in Cuffari’s office had arranged to collect some phones, according to sources. But late on the night of Feb. 18, one of several deputies who “report to Cuffari’s team” wrote an email to investigators instructing them not to take the phones and not to seek any data from them, according to a copy of an internal record shared with the Post.

The House Jan. 6 committee is seeking the text messages to shed light on Donald Trump’s actions around the time of the attack on the U.S. Capitol. Blockbuster testimony from former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, later corroborated by others, revealed a confrontation between the president and his Secret Service detail. Hutchinson said Trump demanded to go to the Capitol as the assault was getting underway, but that Secret Service agents refused to take him.

>After five months of fighting, Ukraine's military has forced Russia to reduce its ambitions.
>Much of Ukraine's battlefield success is owed to its more capable noncommissioned officers.
>With strategic competition increasing, Western militaries are emphasizing the role of skilled NCOs.

In the five months since Russia launched its attack, Ukraine's military has relied on its enlisted leaders to frustrate Moscow and force it to reduce its ambitions after heavy losses and limited progress.

Speaking to senior enlisted leaders from 65 countries on Monday, Chief Master Sgt. of the Ukrainian Air Force Kostiantyn Stanislavchuk attributed the effectiveness of those noncommissioned officers — which refers to troops who have risen through the enlisted ranks but have not been commissioned as officers — to a training process that was revamped after Russia's 2014 invasion in order to emphasize leadership and the ability to think and act independently.

"I believe the sergeant corps plays an important role in this" success, Stanislavchuk said at the Senior Enlisted Leaders International Summit hosted by the US Air Force outside Washington, DC. "After all, the actions of small army units are managed by our junior commanders."

"The sergeants of the armed forces, without waiting for instructions from the above, took the initiative" to conduct "independent, small operations" and act "independently and resourcefully," Stanislavchuk said through a translator. "In this way, the defense forces are comparatively different from the enemy, where generals are forced to personally raise their subordinates to attack."

MIAMI — The Russian man with a trim beard and patterned T-shirt appeared in a Florida political group’s YouTube livestream in March, less than three weeks after his country had invaded Ukraine, and falsely claimed that what had happened was not an invasion.

“I would like to address the free people around the world to tell you that Western propaganda is lying when they say that Russia invaded Ukraine,” he said through an interpreter.

His name was Aleksandr Viktorovich Ionov, and he described himself as a “human rights activist.”

But federal authorities say he was working for the Russian government, orchestrating a yearslong influence campaign to use American political groups to spread Russian propaganda and interfere with U.S. elections. On Friday, the Justice Department revealed that it had charged Mr. Ionov with conspiring to have American citizens act as illegal agents of the Russian government.

Mr. Ionov, 32, who lives in Moscow and is not in custody, is accused of recruiting three political groups in Florida, Georgia and California from December 2014 through March, providing them with financial support and directing them to publish Russian propaganda. On Friday, the Treasury Department imposed sanctions against him.

David Walker, the top agent in the F.B.I.’s Tampa field office, called the allegations “some of the most egregious and blatant violations we’ve seen by the Russian government in order to destabilize and undermine trust in American democracy.”

In 2017 and 2019, Mr. Ionov supported the campaigns of two candidates for local office in St. Petersburg, Fla., where one of the American political groups was based, according to a 24-page indictment. He wrote to a Russian official in 2019 that he had been “consulting every week” on one of the campaigns, the indictment said.

>Trump indicates if he were president, he wouldn't make any deal to free the imprisoned basketball star because she "makes, you know, a lot of money."

Former President Donald Trump lashed out Sunday at American WNBA star Brittney Griner as “spoiled,” and indicated he wouldn’t make any deals to get her out of prison in Russia because she “makes a lot of money.”

Griner was arrested in Moscow in February as she entered the country for a tournament when officials discovered vape cartridges with cannabis oil in her luggage.

Trump claimed on the Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show that Griner entered Russia “loaded up with drugs.”

In fact she had .7 grams (.024 ounces) of cannabis oil, which is legal in her home state of Arizona and in many other states in America. Russian media, which reported the amount, said officials considered it “significant.”

Griner, who said she had a doctor’s note for the cannabis oil, explained in a Russian court when she pleaded guilty early this month that she had forgotten that it was in her bag and brought it into the country inadvertently.

The athlete was arrested as Russian officials were railing against Western sanctions for its invasion of Ukraine. Griner faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of transporting drugs.

Trump criticized reports that the U.S. is considering trading notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, being held in an American prison, to secure the release of Griner and former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan, who is serving a 16-year sentence in Russia on what U.S. officials call baseless espionage charges.

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taiwan on Tuesday night, becoming the highest-ranking American official to visit the self-ruled island that is claimed by China in 25 years.

Pelosi’s visit has triggered increased tensions between China and the United States. China claims Taiwan as part of its territory, to be annexed by force if necessary, and views visits by foreign government officials as recognition of the island’s sovereignty.

China had warned of “resolute and strong measures” if Pelosi went ahead with the trip. The Biden administration did not explicitly urge her to call it off, while seeking to assure Beijing it would not signal any change in U.S. policy on Taiwan.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. AP’s earlier story follows below.

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was believed headed for Taiwan on Tuesday on a visit that could significantly escalate tensions with Beijing, which claims the self-ruled island as its own territory.

Pelosi is on an Asian tour this week that is being closely watched to see if she will defy China’s warnings against visiting the island republic, a close U.S. ally.

China has vowed to retaliate if Pelosi becomes the highest U.S. elected official to visit Taiwan in more than 25 years, but has given no details. Speculation has centered on threatening military exercises and possible incursions by Chinese planes and ships into areas under Taiwanese control.

Is it possible the stolen white house records implicate Trump in his J6 plot, and they were taken to try to hide this evidence?

Remember when the liberals didn't use the state to raid the personal home of citizens? Grotesque abuse of power and infringement on basic human rights.

The FBI is raiding President Trump’s home in Maralago!

This is the rogue behavior of communist countries, NOT the United States of America!!!

This private citizen is a former president that most likely commited offences of the highest order then proceeded to cover them up. I'm glad WHOEVER is using the state to take that citizen down is doing so. Criminals (and their fanboys) can't commit their crimes and then whine when they get caught and are raided.
