#BREAKING: News outlets are reporting that Donald Trump will nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. If confirmed, Judge Barrett will unleash a Court majority that is hostile to basic civil rights. The impact will be felt for decades. nytimes.com/2020/09/25/us/…
Judge Barrett’s personal belief is that marriage is between a man and a woman, and has been unwilling to affirm that the Supreme Court’s decision making marriage equality the law of the land is settled law.
Her cramped so-called “originalist” view of the Constitution also threatens the civil rights of not just LGBTQ people but a host of others, including women and people of color, who have relied on the courts to make progress in the fight for equality and justice.

56 members of the U.S. House of Representatives call on U.S. President Donald Trump to sanction the entire financial system of #Iran's genocidal regime from the global network.
14 Iranian banks remain open and connected to the @swiftcommunity messaging network, providing #Iran's genocidal regime access to the global financial system & the ability to sidestep current sanctions & fund its nefarious activities.

The Central Bank of #Iran capitalizes from these remaining un-sanctioned banks and is most likely using them as fronts for its malign activities.

#BREAKING Terrorists have killed BDC chairman Bhupinder Singh in Kashmir. Bhupinder Singh was targeted on 11-08-2020 when grenade was thrown in his house. He escaped death then but it came hunting for him today. I have raised alarms of security for them so many times.
Bhupinder Singh is not the first Sikh democratic worker to be killed, there have been killings of minority democratic workers in 2019, 2014 as well. This is really sad. May his soul rest in peace. #Kashmir
Bhupinder Singh has raised alarms for security in the past. This incident has shocked the Sikhs in valley who already feel threatened by the Islamist groups spreading terror.

#BREAKING @DNC colluded to steal #NC.

#NCBOE (Board of Elections) was rigged by Governor @RoyCooperNC to be run by the @DNC. He had the non-partisan former head trashed. 1/
2/ skip ahead to now. Remember, #NCBOR is @DNC owned. NC has laws for voting that male it difficult to cheat. Signatures have to match. You cannot hand your ballot to anyone but a relative to turn it in for you, that kind of thing.
3/ @POTUS & all @GOP candidates must have gone beyond the margin of error in @DNC piling, because they felt they really needed to pad the ballot box with fake ballots. Here’s how they did it.

#BREAKING: Hong Kong police disavow IDs issued by the HK Journalists Asso. and the HK Press Photographers Asso. as valid credentials, one step forward to a licensing regime for journalists. The New definition only covers govt-registered media outlets and other known intl media. Image
It is a huge step backwards regarding Hong Kong’s press freedom. Over 200 officers raided @appledaily_hk’ HQ on Aug 10. The city plunged to 80th in the Press Freedom Index last year, a significant drop compared to from 18th, where it stood when the index was introduced in 2002.
Such scale-downing of the definition deal Hong Kong’s journalism industry a solid blow because the industry relies heftily on freelancers and stingers, e.g. coverage on last year’s anti-government protests. They were not officially employed by a certain media company.
