An unusual situation has developed over the past few days in Broward County that calls the ensuing “Florida recount” into further question. “Provisional Ballot Boxes” were found in the trunk of a rental car returned to the Fort Lauderdale Airport. The car was last driven by one of Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes’ employees, more of which below.
Shortly after an Avis employee tipped off independent journalist Laura Loomer, a bomb scare was apparently telephoned in to airport officials.
Over the past several days Meteorologists are reporting an increased likelihood of tornadoes developing in the Mississippi River Delta area and Lower Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. These are (perhaps coincidentally) the “Red” states that turned out heavily to elect Donald Trump the 45th US President in 2016. The states include areas of Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama.
The National Weather Service reported November 4,
A significant severe weather outbreak is forecast to intensify Monday night with potential for very large tornadoes EF-2 or greater possible.
A significant severe weather outbreak is forecast to intensify Monday night with potential for very large tornadoes EF-2 or greater possible. Remember to have more than one way to get warnings, and have a plan for how to manage taking action during nocturnal storms. https://t.co/8xZtEGNCLY
Editor’s Note: The Central American Caravan, pipe bombs sent to Dems, and now Donald Trump’s allegedly unsecured iPhone are the stories dominating major US news media in the last two weeks before the Midterms. In this report Judicial Watch presents actual interviews with a cross section of Caravan participants, all of whom claim they heard about the trek on the news and demur when asked about central organization.
Other sources observe how there are likely powerful monied interests and resources behind the event, which almost has to be the case as the many thousands now on the move need food, water, and perhaps most importantly ground transportation if they are in fact to reach the US-Mexican border on or before November 6, when Americans go to the polls. This has been partly confirmed by Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, who said in a press report, “The irregular mobilization was organized for political reasons to negatively affect the governance and image of Honduras and to destabilize the peace of neighboring countries.” He added that many Caravan participants returned to Honduras after realizing they’d been duped.
Besides gang members and mobs of young angry men, the Central American caravan making its way into the United States also consists of Africans, Bangladeshis, Sri Lankans and Indians. Judicial Watch is covering the crisis from the Guatemalan-Honduran border this week and observed that the popular mainstream media narrative of desperate migrants—many of them women and children—seeking a better life is hardly accurate. Guatemalan intelligence officials confirmed that the caravan that originated in the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula includes a multitude of Special Interest Aliens (SIA) from the countries listed above as well as other criminal elements and gang members.
There are also large groups of men, some with criminal histories, aggressively demanding that the U.S. take them in. During a visit to the Guatemalan town of Chiquimula, about 35 miles from the Honduran border, Judicial Watch encountered a rowdy group of about 600 men, ages 17 to about 40, marching north on a narrow two-lane highway. Among them was a 40-year-old Honduran man who previously lived in the United States for decades and got deported. His English was quite good, and he said his kids and girlfriend live in the U.S. Another man in his 30s contradicted media reports that caravan participants are fleeing violence and fear for their life. “We’re not scared,” he said waving his index finger as others around him nodded in agreement. “We’re going to the United States to get jobs.” Others chanted “vamos para allá Trump!” (We’re coming Trump) as they clenched their fists in the air. “We need money and food,” said a 29-year-old man who made the trek with his 21-year-old brother.
Editor’s Note: It is difficult to recall a time in recent US history when national politics has been so exciting to watch–as if something is in fact proceeding that is unprecedented. If one has only been half-paying attention they must notice very unusual developments that have been largely overlooked by major media, including the recent revelation that top DOJ officials plotted to oust the present presidential incumbent.
Don’t tell former FBI general counsel James Baker that those now-infamous discussions about secretly recordingPresident Trump and using the tapes to remove him from office were a joke.
He apparently doesn’t believe it. And he held quite the vantage point — he was on the inside of the bureau’s leadership in May 2017, when the discussions occurred.
Baker told Congress last week that his boss — then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe — was dead serious about the idea of surreptitiously recording the 45th president and using the evidence to make the case that Trump should be removed from office, according to my sources.
Baker told lawmakers he wasn’t in the meeting McCabe had with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in which the subject came up. But he did have firsthand conversations with McCabe and the FBI lawyer assigned to McCabe, Lisa Page, about the issue.
“As far as Baker was concerned, this was a real plan being discussed,” said a source directly familiar with the congressional investigation. “It was no laughing matter for the FBI.”
Word of Baker’s testimony surfaced just days before Rosenstein was set to be interviewed in private on Thursday by House Judiciary Committee lawmakers.
Since The New York Times first reported the allegations, Rosenstein, the No. 2 Department of Justice (DOJ) official, has tried to downplay his role in them. His office has suggested that he thought the discussions were a joke, that Rosenstein never gave an order to carry out such a plot, and that he does not believe Trump should be removed from office.
It’s being billed as “the deadliest transportation accident” in almost a decade. Over the past two days major media outlets descended on the small upstate New York community of Schoharie to report on the tragic deaths of 20 twenty and thirty-somethings–many of them newlyweds with newborn children.
They were young adults — sisters, brothers, old friends and newlyweds — who were celebrating one of their birthday’s in a rented SUV limousine on a drive through rural Schoharie County.
They are now victims of the nation’s deadliest transportation disaster in nine years.
Twenty people died Saturday afternoon in the horrific wreck at the intersection of state routes 30 and 30A in the town of Schoharie. The stretch limo, packed with 18 people, drove through a stop sign at the notorious intersection and fatally struck two people in the parking lot of a popular country store, before slamming into an earthen embankment and killing all of the oversized vehicle’s occupants.
Goldman Sachs startup Circle, the Boston-based crypto finance company, has gone live with its stablecoin called the US Dollar Coin, or USDC.
This is the first cryptocurrency released by a major financial institution.
In order to avoid instability and inflation inherent to other unregulated cryptocurrencies, the value of the USDC will be tied to the dollar, according to CNBC.
“It unlocks an incredible amount of power for the dollar,” said Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle. “It’s basically a dollar that operates on the (Ethereum) blockchain.”
“Ethereum is the best bet but it’s not necessarily the end game,” he said. “For now it’s specifically on Ethereum.”
The USDC will be regulated as a registered Money Services Business under U.S. money transmission laws, and as a virtual currency, it will be regulated under its New York BitLicense. Furthermore, the company said it will hold deposits on a 1:1 basis in accounts that would be audited on a monthly basis. Each entity that wishes to enroll and issue USDC is held to the same regulatory-compliant standards.
Circle has said that the USDC will initially be available on its native trading platforms like the Circle Trade and Circle’s Poloniex exchange, and later available on other platforms like KuCoin, OKCoin, CoinEx, and others.
Democrats can’t believe someone would drop an uncorroborated claim just before a hearing
Documents published by the Senate Judiciary Committee late Wednesday night show a bizarre twist in the Kavanaugh hysteria — the committee spoke with two men who believe may the culprits in Ford’s accusations, not Kavanaugh.
Whoa. Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans say they have spoken to two men who think they, not Kavanaugh, had the 1982 encounter that formed the basis for her sexual abuse claim. (These tables are from a timeline the committee majority published 15 minutes ago.) pic.twitter.com/tjz3CSQUUL
The Senate Judiciary Committee just sent out a timeline describing how they responded to the allegations against #SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh. It appears to indicate they've been in touch with two men who believe they had the "encounter" with Christine Blasey Ford pic.twitter.com/4cHn4j1DXw
