Trump campaign renews legal effort to block certification of election results in Pa.

WILLIAMSPORT – The Trump campaign has renewed its legal fight to prevent Commonwealth Secretary Kathy Boockvar from certifying the results of the Nov. 3 election.

Donald J. Trump for President Inc. and two individuals Sunday filed an amended complaint in U.S. Middle District Court that alleges disparate treatment of absentee and mail-in ballots across the state in violation of the Equal Protection Clause.

They also claim a violation of the Electors and Elections clauses in that Boockvar and the election boards in seven counties had no authority to provide an opportunity to cure deficient mail-in ballots.

“In a rush to count mail ballots and ensure Democrat Joe Biden is elected,” Pennsylvania created an illegal voting system that devaluated certain votes, they say.

They point out officials in some counties notified voters whose mail-in ballots were deficient and gave them the opportunity to cast a provisional ballot while others did not.

Epstein Case Still Used to Smear Acosta

WASHINGTON — Before he was found dead in a New York jail cell in what a coroner described as a suicide, Jeffrey Epstein was a super-rich serial sex abuser with impeccable political connections and a ruthless streak. A year after his death, Epstein haunts a criminal justice system that failed his many victims.

In 2005, the parents of a 14-year-old girl complained to the Palm Beach Police Department in Florida that Epstein had paid their daughter for a massage. The investigation led to the discovery that Epstein used personal assistants to recruit girls to provide massages for him and the massages often led to sexual abuse.

After the state attorney’s office presented its case, a grand jury indicted Epstein for a felony count solicitation of prostitution. In search of a tougher, more appropriate sentence, local law enforcement reached out to the FBI in the hope that the feds could come

Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell: CIA Director Haspel Should Be Fired For Ignoring Warnings About “Rotten” Dominion Voting System | Video

President Trump’s lawyer Sidney Powell told FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo that CIA director Gina Haspel should be fired for ignoring warnings about the Dominion voter software ahead of the 2020 election.

“It should never have been installed anywhere and we are going to show the public exactly how rotten the entire state is,” she said.

“Why Gina Haspel is still there in the CIA is beyond my comprehension,” Powell said. “She should be fired immediately.”

“You feel that you’ll be able to prove this?” FOX host Maria Bartiromo asked.

“Well, I’ve got lots of ways to prove it, Maria but I’m not going to tell on national TV what all we have. I just can’t do that,” Powell said. “We’re collecting evidence now from various whistleblowers that are aware of substantial sums of money being given to family members of state officials who bought this software.”

“We’re

Trump attorney Sidney Powell says they are ‘fixing to overturn the results of the election in several states’

Trump attorney Sidney Powell said a member of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, Peter Neffenger, is also a member of the board of directors for a company that committed election fraud that could cause the results of the 2020 election to be overturned.

“He is president and on the board of directors of Smartmatic, and it just so happens he’s on Mr. Biden’s presidential transition team that’s going to be nonexistent, because we’re fixing to overturn the results of the election in multiple states,” said Powell during an appearance on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo. “President Trump won not just hundreds of thousands of votes but by millions of votes that were shifted by this software that was designed expressly for that purpose.”

Powell said Neffenger had knowledge that the software provided by Smartmatic was designed to rig elections.

“We have sworn witness testimony of why the software was

GOP leaders in four battleground states won by Biden won’t cooperate to flip electors for Trump

GOP leadership in Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin say they won’t participate in legally suspicious schemes to flip their state’s electors for Donald Trump.

Comments from leaders in these swing states that went blue this year effectively shut down a half-baked plot some Republicans floated as a last chance to keep Trump in the White House.

State GOP lawmakers in the four key battleground states that swung blue this election have all said they would not intervene in the selection of electors.

Those on the Electoral College are the individuals who ultimately cast the votes that secure a candidate’s victory.

Several of the state lawmakers note that choosing electors to cast their vote for a candidate not selected by the people would violate state law and voters’ trust in election integrity.

‘I do not see, short of finding some type of fraud, which I haven’t heard of anything – I

Small firms do well in criminal law, Singapore News & Top Stories

SINGAPORE – Small firms and sole proprietors showed they can do better than the big firms in criminal law.

Of the 15 firms named in the criminal law category of the ST Best Law Firms 2021 list, the top two are small law firms – Trident Law Corporation and Eugene Thuraisingam LLP. And the two were the only firms, big or small, to achieve five-star ratings.

“It is not so much that small firms or sole proprietors cannot do the type of work that the big firms do or vice versa. Most of the time, big firms do not take on criminal matters where the clients are not well-resourced,” said a spokesman for Trident Law.

“In particular, this may be the case for pro bono matters such as those under the Legal Assistance Scheme for Capital Offences.”

“When small firms or sole proprietors take on such pro bono matters, they

Law & Order Star Ice-T Once Went to Military Jail Over a Rug

In his youth, he did a stint in the military that changed his life in more ways than one. But while there, he got into some trouble over a rug.

There, he learned to adapt to an environment where gangs existed and wound up attending Crenshaw High. During his senior year,

New Arizona law prompts Pima County prosecutors to drop some marijuana cases | Local news



While possession of marijuana has been legalized in Arizona, the ability to legally purchase it likely won’t happen until early next year once state officials develop licensing regulations.




Pima County’s top prosecutor said not much will change locally with the pending legalization of small amounts of marijuana in Arizona.

For years, local law enforcers have hardly ever made arrests solely for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana — the amount about to become legal for adults 21 and older under Proposition 207, County Attorney Barbara LaWall said.

Possession charges “almost always” are filed only when someone is being arrested for other more serious crimes, LaWall said in an email interview.

As a result, only a handful of possession cases are before the local courts and those will be dropped when the new ballot initiative takes effect, she said.

Some are for possession of cannabis concentrates such as
