WATCH: Trump’s Director of Election Day Operations Tweets Video of Philly ‘Volunteers’ Busted Handling Absentee Ballots in Counting Center Basement

President Donald Trump’s Director of Election Day Operations shared an alarming video on Friday of Philadelphia “volunteers” handling absentee ballots in the basement of the counting center.

When confronted about their bizarre actions, the woman claimed that she is “just a volunteer” and does not know the name of her supervisor.

The woman refused to explain what they were doing in the basement with the ballots or why their supervisor was not present.

Trump’s campaign has sued Philadelphia County’s Board of Elections after election officials were “intentionally refusing to allow any representatives and poll watchers for President Trump and the Republican Party.” The campaign is also challenging a ruling in Pennsylvania that would allow votes received up to three days after the election to be counted.

Pelosi sends House Dems plea for support as she announces speaker re-election bid

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent personalized letters to fellow Congressional Democrats on Thursday asking for their backing in re-electing her to the speaker position.

Although a winner had not been declared as of Friday afternoon in the presidential race between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, Pelosi referred to Biden as the “president-elect” in a letter obtained by Politico.

“I am writing to request your support to be re-elected as Speaker,” Pelosi wrote. “I do so with the utmost respect for the diverse viewpoints of our Democratic Caucus, the gravity of this role and the urgency of the challenges ahead.”

She asserted voters picked Democrats “up and down the ballot with a resounding and a remarkable mandate for progress and healing.”

“Working together with President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, the Democratic House will be ready on Day One to advance extraordinary change For The People,” she continued.

Pelosi claimed votes were cast for Democrats to “crush the coronavirus and safely reopen schools and the economy.”

She also promised a Democratic majority would accomplish “lower healthcare costs, bigger paychecks and cleaner government,” while “championing progress for seniors, veterans, immigrants, LGBTQ Americans, women, young people and frontline communities.”

“With a Democratic president, a Democratic House and Democrats in the Senate, it is imperative that we enact initiatives to make the economy fairer — ending wealth and health disparities,” Pelosi added.

Pelosi also criticized Trump and Senate Republicans for their “act of supreme desperation by jamming through a Supreme Court justice, after 60 million Americans had already voted.”

She said the Democratic majority must prepare to “reverse the damage of a radical Republican court and remedy what they will do to undermine justice in health, financial security, policing, human rights and equality.”

CBS News reported Friday that the letter came after several Democratic caucus members lashed out at Pelosi on a conference call Thursday.

Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia blamed moderate Democrats’ campaign performances on leftist mantras like “defund the police,” according to CBS News.

Democrats also said Republicans were able to connect those moderates to “‘socialism’ because of the party’s more left-wing members.”

“I think that the Democratic party needs to clearly push that we are not supportive of ideas like socialism or defunding the police or anti-Semitism,” Rep. Stephanie Murphy of Florida told the Associated Press.

New York’s Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, known for her often leftist stances, argued Friday that campaign failures occurred because “almost all had awful execution on digital during a pandemic.”

She also claimed Democratic incumbents who supported initiatives like the New Green Deal were re-elected.

“Our message from day one was that the Democrats’ radical socialist agenda is a threat to middle-class Americans,” Republican Rep. Tom Emmer of Minnesota told the AP.

Rep. Cheri Bustos, who chairs the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said during the call that the DCCC would do a “deep dive” into what happened in the House, according to CBS News.

U.N. aviation agency asks Iran to expedite investigation of downed jet

November 6, 2020

(Reuters) – The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on Friday asked Iran to expedite the investigation into the downing of a Ukrainian airliner in January.

The recommendation from ICAO, a specialized agency of the United Nations that works to ensure safety in international air transport, comes nearly 10 months after a Ukraine International Airlines flight was shot down by an Iranian ground-to-air missile, killing 176 people.

“We have had several exchanges with the Iranian CAA in which we urged its authorities to expedite the accident investigation,” ICAO council president Salvatore Sciacchitano said. (https://bit.ly/38kTa2L)

DA Drops Charges On Ten Portland Rioters, Including Two Unlawfully Carrying Firearms

Officers and deputies from the ballyhooed Unified Command arrested twelve particular individuals associated with post election night riots in Portland. The terrorists weren’t concerned so much with the Presidential election, but rather vichy “mayor” Ted Wheeler’s reelection.

From the official Multnomah County Sheriff’s press release:

Shortly after, a group of about 100 people began walking from the Skidmore Fountain through Downtown Portland, along West Burnside Street, breaking out windows as they moved. As police responded and ordered people to leave, individuals continued leaving a trail of damage. The ongoing criminal activity by such a large group of people created a significant risk to public safety. Unified Command declared the gathering a riot and gave repeated loudspeaker announcements that the crowd was directed to stop their criminal activity and leave. Those announcements were repeated at least five times over loudspeakers near the crowd.

People began throwing projectiles, including a firework, at police officers; (this was initially reported as a Molotov cocktail. After further investigation, it was determined to be a firework). Individuals broke out dozens of windows to businesses and damaged other private property downtown. Police officers identified the suspect who threw the firework and sheriff’s deputies arrested him nearby. The man is identified as William K. Beecher, 23, was armed with a loaded rifle and was in possession of several loaded magazines, a knife and other fireworks (photos). Beecher was also wearing a ballistics vest.

In the interest of public safety, Governor Kate Brown, under advice of the Unified Command, activated the use of the Oregon National Guard to assist officers in responding to acts of violence, and to maintain public order and ensure community safety.

An hour later, about 100 people left and began walking north. Police responded to prevent the group from reaching W. Burnside Street where they had damaged property earlier in the evening. Police provided announcements over a loudspeaker that the group was not to cross W. Burnside Street and that people who engage in criminal acts are subject to arrest and/or the use of force including munitions and CS gas.

This announcement was met with aggressive actions by participants. Individuals again threw glass bottles at police and blocked vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Police announced to the crowd that the assembly was unlawful and needed to disperse.

At about 11:15 p.m., Oregon State Police troopers stopped a vehicle without license plates that was interfering with traffic. They discovered the driver had a handgun and arrested him. Wesley C. Fant was booked on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm (photo).

A follow up press release identified twelve particular individuals who were arrested:

Twelve people were arrested for various crimes during a riot on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 in Downtown Portland. The following are those booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center:

  • Wyatt Dylan Scully, 19, from Portland, charged with Trespass II

  • Tanner Nokoa Alcorn, 29, from Portland, charged with Trespass II

  • Jason Mercury Tyler, 22, from Beaverton, charged with Trespass II

  • Jarrod Deferrari, 23, from Sunrise, Florida, charged with Riot, Disorderly Conduct I, Criminal Mischief I, Sale/Possession of Fireworks, Burglary II, Attempt Arson II

  • Leslie Johnson, 25, charged with Trespass II

  • Ian Wyatt Harrington, 25, from Portland, charged with Interfering with a Peace Officer, Disorderly Conduct II

  • James Christopher Saraceno, 49, from Portland, charged with Interfering with a Peace Officer, Disorderly Conduct II, Reckless Burning, Riot

  • Michael Tyler Ream, 38, from Portland, charged with Resisting Arrest, Interfering with a Peace Officer, Disorderly Conduct II

  • Ashley Schofield, 36, from Portland, charged with Interfering with a Peace Officer, Resisting Arrest, Harassment

  • William Kahl Beecher, 23, from Oregon City, charged with Possession of Loaded Firearm, Riot, Disorderly Conduct II

  • Sherlock Ortiz, 23, from Portland, charged with Criminal Mischief I

  • Wesley C. Fant, 29, from Portland, charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm

Predictably, Multnomah county district attorney Mike Schmidt dropped charges on ten of them on Thursday, including Fant and Beecher. The city of Portland and county of Multnomah both have “codes” that prohibit carrying a loaded firearm without a Concealed Handgun License, though many say that the code will eventually be struck down if someone charged with violating it takes it to higher courts.

Willamette Week reports:

The sheriff’s office says a protester named William Kahl Beecher, 23, threw a firework at a group of police officers. Beecher, who was wearing a ballistic vest, carried a loaded rifle, several loaded magazines, a knife and fireworks, the sheriff’s office said. The rifle had a sticker on it that read “Dead Tyrant Society.”

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Beecher and booked him in the Multnomah County Jail after 11 pm on Wednesday on charges of riot, disorderly conduct and possession of a loaded firearm, jail records show.

Beecher, a West Linn resident, posted $900 bail and was released from jail on Thursday, according to court records. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute Beecher on any charges and referred his case back to law enforcement for further investigation.

In total, law enforcement referred 13 cases to the DA’s office stemming from Wednesday night protests.

Of those 13, five were felonies and eight were misdemeanors. DeFerrari, Harrah and Beecher accounted for three of those felony cases. Prosecutors declined to pursue charges in the other two felony cases and referred them back to the arresting agency for investigative follow-up.

The DA’s office declined to pursue the eight misdemeanor cases, either because they did not meet the office’s criteria for prosecuting protesters, because they needed investigative follow-up, or because prosecutors didn’t receive a police report for the incident.

KPTV Fox 12 posted all of the mugshots.
