Sanders Files “Recanvas” Request in Kentucky to “Show Young Democrat Voters the Count Isn’t Rigged” (?!?)

by Scott Creighton

It appears the Bernie Sanders campaign has finally paid some attention to the “conspiracy theorists” out here like Lee Camp and myself who have been saying for a while that the vote counts in the Democrat Party primary have been hacked… obviously hacked.

Yesterday, the Sanders campaign filed for a “recanvas” of the Kentucky primary results with the office of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. You might recall, Grimes campaigned for Hillary just two weeks prior to the primary which she was in charge of and famously said it was more important to her to get Hillary elected than to do her job as Secretary of State.

“Recanvasing” is not a recount. All it means is the same culprits who gathered on primary day to rig the election will get back together on Thursday and sit around for a while in their respective precincts and call in to tell the Hillary-backing Grimes that everything is hunky-dory and their original vote tallies are accurate.

“A recanvas is not a total re-evaluation of who voted for who, but a review of the tabulations from each voting precinct for correctness.” Ledger Independent

This begs the questions “why a recanvas and not a recount?” and “what is the point of all of this?”

Since the Electronic Voting Machine Fix is Already In and Exit Polls Cancelled for Cali, Clinton Decides to Skip Debate

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: “Its very clear, without all this manipulation, Bernie Sanders would have won the nomination” Chris Hedges

““We have declined Fox News’ invitation to participate in a debate in California,” Clinton’s top campaign spokeswoman said in a statement on Monday. “As we have said previously, we plan to compete hard in the remaining primary states, particularly California, while turning out attention to the threat a Donald Trump presidency poses.”” Press TV

Why should Hillary Clinton bother debating Bernie Sanders in California? The fix is in. She’s stolen more states in the Democrat Party primary this year than George Bush stolen in the general elections of 2004 and 2000 combined and very few media outlets have said a word about it, so why should she worry about facing Bernie Sanders on the debate stage?

Let’s make it a little clearer. Here’s a little tidbit from an ABC exit poll compared to the official results in Connecticut.

Seems to be a little discrepancy in both CNN and ABC exit polls. You would think someone would pay attention to that in the MSM but you would be wrong.

al-Qaeda-linked Terrorist and Former British Businessman Allowed to Visit DC in December

from McClatchy

A senior figure from a Syrian rebel group with links to al Qaida was allowed into the United States for a brief visit, raising questions about how much the Obama administration will compromise in the search for partners in the conflict.

Labib al Nahhas, foreign affairs director for the Islamist fighting group Ahrar al Sham, spent a few days in Washington in December, according to four people with direct knowledge of the trip and who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of U.S. relations with Syrian rebels.

His previously undisclosed visit is a delicate matter for both sides – the conservative Salafist insurgents risk their credibility with even perceived ties to the United States, and the U.S. government risks looking soft on screenings by allowing entry to a member of an Islamist paramilitary force.

National security analysts say U.S. authorities likely knew of Nahhas’ arrival – intelligence agencies for years have watched his group’s interactions with al Qaida’s Syrian branch, the Nusra Front.

A Spanish citizen who studied in Birmingham and headed a tech company based in a London suburb is leading efforts to rebrand one of Syria’s most prominent armed Islamist opposition groups.

Labib al-Nahhas is the “foreign affairs minister” for Ahrar al-Sham, a group that has fought in alliances with al-Qaida’s Syrian franchise, and aims to establish a Sunni theocracy in Syria. One of its original leaders also had personal connections with Osama bin Laden.

His role sends him around western capitals arguing that his group is an ultra-conservative but legitimate part of the opposition, using his own European roots to reach out to diplomats wary of the group’s history and beliefs.

“In American law, providing material support for terrorism is a crime prohibited by the USA PATRIOT Act and codified in title 18 of the United States Code, sections 2339A and 2339B. It applies primarily to groups designated as terrorists by the State Department. The four types of support described are “training,” “expert advice or assistance,” “service,” and “personnel.”

And the spokesman for the State Department has nothing to say about Labib al-Nahhas being allowed to run around drumming up support for a known Salafist terror organization with proven ties to al-Qaeda?

Defying police repression, protests continue (and grow) against French labour law

from the WSWS

Despite the imposition of the reactionary labour law by the Socialist Party (PS) government in the National Assembly last week, using emergency clause 49.3 of the French constitution, protests against the law are continuing this week across France.

During yesterday’s strikes and demonstrations, truck drivers blocked or slowed traffic to a crawl on motorways near big cities in most regions of France. Tomorrow, there will be a strike on French railways, while a new round of demonstrations and strikes against the labour law is planned for Thursday.

Protesters are defying brutal police repression of demonstrations against the labour law and the broader police state agenda of the PS. In a sinister development, trampling fundamental democratic principles including freedom of assembly and the presumption of innocence, the PS has been launching pre-emptive arrests of protesters to stop them from participating in protests. The PS used the current State of Emergency, voted in after the November 13th terrorist attacks in Paris, as a pretext for this blatant attack on democratic rights.

Elon Musk apologizes for Tesla workers paid just $5 an hour by subcontractor

(Here you go, libertarians. Deregulation, flexible work-forces and limited liability. GO BUSINESS!)

from the Guardian

Tesla relied on cheap foreign labor to build a hi-tech paint shop in California, paying workers as little as $5 an hour, according to a damning report that prompted CEO Elon Musk to launch an investigation.

The electric car company used roughly 140 workers from eastern Europe, primarily Slovenia and Croatia, to build a paint shop in Fremont in northern California as part of its production of the Model 3 sedan.

Workers hired by subcontractor Eisenmann, a German-based manufacturer, received hourly wages as low as $5, which is a fraction of the prevailing wages for local sheet metal workers – $52 an hour plus $42 an hour in benefits and pensions, according to a report by the Bay Area News Group.

In response to the article, Musk tweeted, “Only heard about this today. Sounds like the wrong thing happened on many levels. Will investigate and make it right.”

In April, Tesla took in almost $10bn in pre-orders in just two days for its Model 3, which the company is marketing as its first attempt at an affordable electric car, scheduled for shipping next year.

US Special Forces have been operating secretly in Libya for months

(The US is secretly on the ground in Libya making ready for an assault against the legitimate government of that country, the Green Revolution government, which the US is calling “ISIS”. Apparently, everyone that doesn’t accept US domination in their country is now “ISIS”)

from WSWS

Teams of United States Special Operations commandos have been active in Libya since last year, the Washington Post reported Thursday, citing statements from unnamed US military officers.

The American soldiers are operating from secret bases that were established last year, without any public disclosure, in eastern and western Libya, near Benghazi and Misurata. The US troops are scouting targets and recruiting proxy forces as part of “contact teams,” according to the Post.

Members of the American military “began making visits to Libya last spring and established twin outposts six months later,” military sources told the Post, and US personnel have been “cultivating relationships among forces that are mobilizing for a possible assault against the Islamic State in its Sirte stronghold.”
