U.S. court strikes down North Carolina voter ID law

July 30, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. court strikes down North Carolina voter ID law | 29 July 2016 | A U.S. appeals court on Friday struck down a North Carolina law that required voters to show photo identification when casting ballots, ruling that it intentionally discriminated against African-American residents. The ruling, a victory for rights advocates that will enable thousands of people to vote more easily, is also likely to be seen as a boost for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton going into the election on Nov. 8. The court's decision also canceled provisions of the law that scaled back early voting, prevented residents from registering and voting on the same day, and eliminated the ability of voters to vote outside their assigned precinct.

July 29, 2016 by legitgov

'World's saddest polar bear' is still stuck in Guangzhou aquarium; 500,000 sign petition calling for animal's release | 29 July 2016 | The Grandview Aquarium, located inside a sprawling shopping mall in Guangzhou, has become notorious for its questionable treatment of its animals, in particular one very sad-looking polar bear named Pizza. Day in and day out, people crowd around the outside of Pizza's pen prison, tapping on the glass, trying to get the mopey bear to move around and pose for a good picture. The blinding flash of cameras has become a non-stop annoyance for the poor creature. In March, the animal welfare group Animals Asia posted a video featuring Pizza -- "the world's saddest polar bear." They followed that up by releasing a petition [now at over 520,000 signatures] calling for the aquarium to be closed and Pizza freed. [Please sign petition.]

Donald Trump Calls Comments About Russia and Clinton Emails 'Sarcastic' | 28 July 2016 | Facing a torrent of criticism over his comments seeming to condone the hacking of Hillary Clinton's emails by Russian intelligence services, Donald J. Trump and his allies on Thursday sought to tamp down his remarks, with Mr. Trump saying he was simply being "sarcastic." In public interviews and private conversations on Thursday, Mr. Trump; his running mate, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana; and campaign staff members contended that Mr. Trump was being facetious when, during a news conference on Wednesday, he said he hoped Russia would be able to find Mrs. Clinton's missing emails. "Of course I'm being sarcastic," Mr. Trump told "Fox and Friends" Thursday morning as his aides accused the news media of misconstruing his remarks.

Hillary Clinton promises steady hand in dangerous world | 28 July 2016 | Promising Americans a steady hand, Hillary Clinton cast herself Thursday night as a unifier for divided times, an experienced leader steeled for a volatile world.

Clinton took the stage to roaring applause from flag-waving delegates on the final night of the Democratic convention, relishing her nomination as the first woman to lead a major U.S. political party. Clinton's four-day convention began with efforts to shore up liberals who backed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary and it ended with an outstretched hand to Republicans and independents unnerved by Trump.

July 28, 2016 by walden9

Donald Trump Calls on Russia to Find Hillary Clinton's Missing Emails | 27 July 2016 | If Mr. Trump is serious in his call for Russian hacking or exposing Mrs. Clinton's emails, he would be urging a power often hostile to the United States to violate American law by breaking into a private computer network. He would also be contradicting the Republican platform, adopted last week in Cleveland, saying that cyberespionage "will not be tolerated," and promising to "respond in kind and in greater magnitude" to all Chinese and Russian cyberattacks.

Julian Assange: 'A lot more material' coming on US elections | 26 July 2016 | WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Tuesday his whistleblowing website might release "a lot more material" relevant to the US electoral campaign.

"Perhaps one day the source or sources will step forward and that might be an interesting moment some people may have egg on their faces. But to exclude certain actors is to make it easier to find out who our sources are," Assange told CNN.
