California to Purge 1.5 Million Inactive Voter Registrations

California to Purge 1.5 Million Inactive Voter Registrations – Washington Free Beacon, 2019/01/06

California and Los Angeles County have agreed to purge as many as 1.5 million inactive voter registrations across the state as part of a court settlement finalized this week with Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog.

Judicial Watch sued the county and state voter-registration agencies, arguing that the California government was not complying with a federal law requiring the removal of inactive registrations that remain after two general elections, or two to four years.

Inactive voter registrations, for the most part, occur when voters move to another country or state or pass away but remain on the rolls. The lawsuit alleged that Los Angeles County, with its more than 10 million residents, has more voter registrations than it has citizens old enough to register with a registration rate of 112 percent of its adult citizen population.


McCain Sent Associate To Meet With Steele on Trump Russian Dossier

2 Jan 2019

McCain associate shared unverified Steele dossier with Buzzfeed, court filing says – Fox News, 2019/01/02

An associate of the late Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain shared with Buzzfeed News a copy of the unverified, salacious opposition research dossier alleging that Russians had compromising material on President Trump, according to a bombshell federal court filing Wednesday.


Earlier this year, Fox News reported that a top McCain associate, David Kramer, had been briefed on the dossier written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele in late November 2016 in Surrey, England. Kramer invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination to avoid testifying before House Republicans about his handling of the dossier.


In November 2016, according to the filing, McCain sent Kramer, a director at the McCain Institute for International Leadership, to London to meet with Steele.


On Nov. 28, 2016, Kramer met with Steele and later obtained copies of the dossier from Glenn Simpson, the head of Fusion GPS, the filing states. Kramer then met with Buzzfeed reporter Ken Bensinger on Dec. 29, 2016 at the McCain Institute.

There, “Kramer reviewed with Bensinger what he knew about the dossier and explained that he took the allegations seriously.” Then, Kramer showed Bensinger the dossier and purportedly informed him that “some of the information was unverified.”

via Scribd – 2018/08/21

Summary:

8 Counts Total.
Count 1 – Tax evasion 2012
Count 2 – Tax evasion 2013
Count 3 – Tax evasion 2014
Count 4 – Tax evasion 2015
Count 5 – Tax evasion 2016
Count 6 – False statement made to a financial institution regarding credit
Count 7 – Causing unlawful corporate contributions
Count 8 – Making excessive campaign contributions

Being that many are rabid for Trump’s head on a platter, the focus is on Count 8. If people were really concerned about the law, it sounds like he should have been dealt with years ago.

The other issue is the attempt to make Count 8 a campaign contribution. This is regarding the $130,000 payment to Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy). This will be difficult to achieve, and it is spelled out here by former FEC Chairman Bradley Smith.

That’s the basics.


Woman Gets Jailtime For Falsely Reporting Rape

Woman who lied about being raped on college campus gets jail – MLive, 2018/06/19

Despite previously indicating he wouldn’t do so, a Bay County judge sent a woman to jail for making up a story about being raped in a Delta College parking lot.

Bay County Circuit Judge Joseph K. Sheeran on Monday, June 18, sentenced 21-year-old Mary T. Zolkowski to 45 days in jail, with no credit for any time served. Once Zolkowski serves her term, she’ll be on probation for two years, during which she is to be tested for drugs and alcohol and participate in substance abuse counseling.

Good. It’s time to increase the risk for those who report false crimes.

Here’s a running list of false reports of crimes.

Islamic State Fighter On Trial Admits Terror Group Sent Him Disguised As Refugee – Breitbart, 2018/02/17

For the last eight months, the judges in the court have tried to determine whether or not the men were sent by the Islamic State, or whether they were radicalised independently.

The eldest defendant, 27-year-old Mohamed A., confirmed to the judge that he had been commanded by the Islamic State terror group to infiltrate the wave of refugees and wait in Germany for further instructions.

The 27-year-old said that he trained with the terror group in its former capital of Raqqa for three months with four different weapons before heading to Europe. An Islamic State member also gave him a forged passport along with a sum of $1,500.
