Election denier Mark Finchem loses secretary of state race in Arizona

Source: NBC News

Republican Mark Finchem, a prominent election denier, has lost to Democrat Adrian Fontes in the race for Arizona secretary of state race, NBC News projects.

Fontes, a former top elections official for Maricopa County, will succeed Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, the Democratic nominee for governor.

Finchem was among a host of GOP candidates for statewide office who have repeatedly cast doubt over Joe Biden’s presidential victory or falsely claimed that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump in Arizona.

Last year, Trump backed Finchem's candidacy and highlighted his record of defending the stolen election claims. “Mark was willing to say what few others had the courage to say” about the 2020 election, Trump said in offering his public support.

Tropical Storm Nicole intensifying as it heads towards the Bahamas and Florida

Tropical Storm Nicole intensifying as it heads towards the Bahamas and Florida

The large storm will bring impacts far to the north of its center, with coastal flooding expected all the way to North Carolina.

Nicole made the transition from a subtropical storm to a tropical storm Tuesday morning, and this change in structure has allowed it to begin an intensification phase. Nicole has made a turn to the west toward the northwestern Bahamas and Florida and is expected to make landfall early Thursday morning in Florida as a category 1 hurricane. Because of Nicole’s large size, impacts from the storm will extend far to the north, and a damaging storm surge is likely along most of the Southeast U.S. coast from central Florida to North Carolina.

Nicole is a large storm – and that means widespread coastal flooding

At 1 p.m. EST Tuesday, Nicole was centered about 420 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida, headed west at 9 mph, with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph and a central pressure of 992 mb. Satellite images showed that Nicole still had somewhat of a subtropical appearance, with heavy thunderstorm activity in wide bands arcing to the west, north, and east of the center. However, Nicole had developed a concentrated area of intensifying heavy thunderstorms near its circulation center, and this change in structure prompted the National Hurricane Center (NHC) to define Nicole as a tropical storm rather than a subtropical storm on Tuesday morning. Thunderstorm coverage was thin on the south side, though, where dry air was present.

Nicole was a large storm, with tropical-storm-force winds that covered a region of ocean larger than the state of Florida. The breadth of Nicole’s tropical-storm-force winds is remarkable; less than 2% of all 6-hourly named storm “fixes” since 2004 showed such a large wind field, according to Michael Lowry.

DOJ prosecutors conclude they have enough evidence to indict Donald Trump for obstruction of justice

New reporting from Bloomberg: "Trump prosecutors see evidence for obstruction charges." Further reporting is that federal prosecutors are "unlikely" to charge ONLY obstruction.

This video discusses why it is quite likely Department of Justice prosecutors will also charge Trump with unlawfully removing and concealing government documents ,and mishandling national defense information - an offense that violates the Espionage Act.

Also, as I indicate in this video, I'll be appearing at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills, California, this Saturday evening, 10/22, at 8 pm PT, as part of Stephanie Miller's Sexy Liberal Tour. I'll be joining Steph and the crew on stage, together with legendary film director and democracy warrior Rob Reiner. For tickets or to live stream, please go to:

New evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump committed felony obstruction of justice

New Washington Post reporting shows that former President Donald Trump personally directed a witness to move boxes containing classified documents AFTER the Department of Justice had issued a grand jury subpoena in a criminal investigating requiring Trump to relinquish the documents. The WAPO headline: "Trump worker told FBI about moving Mar-a-Lago boxes on ex-president's orders." The Post also reported that there is video footage corroborating the witness's account.

If accurate, this constitutes proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump committed the federal felony offense of obstruction of justice.

Trump MUST be indicted for his crimes, and a jury must be allowed to decide if he is guilty or not guilty. A failure to indict Trump would cause the American people to lose faith, confidence, and trust in institutions like the DOJ and the FBI.

Mrs. Betty Bowers
Odd, how the same folks who want to put you in jail if you pay for an abortion are now saying Herschel Walker should be left alone because his paying for an abortion is an issue between him and God--and not their business.

"A whole lot of people love to hate on the "Blue states"... (tweet)


A whole lot of people love to hate on the "Blue states" until an emergency happens and our Blue state taxes come flying in to the rescue.

And then, the MAGAts go back to watching radical extreme-right FOX Fascists to hear they must vomit on the radical-left Communist "Blue states" (the only "Communism" is for the richest 1% with tax breaks and loopholes to exploit for themselves to get richer: "it's a big club, and you're not in it.".

'He faces jail time one way or another.' Legal experts say Trump's 'telepathy defense' can't win

Former President Donald Trump’s legal outlook is getting worse by the moment, as lawsuits and investigations stack up around the country. Laurence Tribe, professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, and retired federal Judge Nancy Gertner join Jim Braude to weigh in on Trump’s prospects in his many legal battles and how it could affect a possible 2024 presidential run.

“He’s out of luck,” Gertner said.

“He faces jail time one way or another,” Tribe added, pointing to the espionage charges he faces as a likely downfall, saying his “telepathy defense” will not work.
