    Thousands of felons across Alabama have registered to vote in recent weeks, according to Pastor Kenneth Glasgow, who is heading up a statewide effort to get felons to the voting booth. Glasgow's goal is to get as many felons as possible signed up to vote before the end of the day Monday, the deadline to be able to cast a ballot in Alabama's Dec. 12 U.S. Senate special election.

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A tearful Corrine Brown made her plea to the court Thursday afternoon, asking the judge to consider all she has done in her life and to show “mercy and compassion.” Brown, 71, was convicted in May of 18 counts of conspiracy, fraud and filing false tax returns. She said those charges run contrary to everything she's ever done in her life, and that she considers her decades of public service an honor and a privilege.

    Damontre Moore was in his first season with the Cowboys Cowboys place-kicker Dan Bailey injured his groin Sunday, and to make room for a temporary replacement, Dallas needed to release a player. Their decision to cut Damontre Moore, Coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday, had nothing to do with the defensive end’s protests during the national anthem. Moore and defensive tackle David Irving have been the only Dallas players to protest. Neither knelt or sat, but both had staged brief demonstrations while standing as pregame renditions of “The Star-Spangled Banner” ended. The timing appeared to be an effort to skirt an...

    Chelsea Manning was turned back at the Canadian-U.S. border because she was convicted of espionage for passing information to Wikileaks, the former U.S. intelligence analyst said on Monday. Manning told Reuters via direct message on Twitter that she drove up to the Canadian border in Lacolle, Quebec, on Thursday evening, planning to vacation in Montreal and Vancouver. She said she was stopped at the border and detained overnight before being handed a report stating she was inadmissible “on grounds of serious criminality,” according to a picture of the report she posted online. The offenses Manning was convicted of under the...

    Post Standard, Syracuse NY ^ | 09/21/17 | By Julie McMahon jmcmahon@syracuse.com,
    A Syracuse crack cocaine dealer granted clemency by President Barack Obama for his role in a large '90s drug ring is facing jail over missed drug tests. Dewayne Comer, 47, will appear in federal court Friday to ask a judge not to send him back to prison. Probation officials said in court papers that Comer failed to report for four drug tests, most recently over Labor Day Weekend. Testing was required as part of Comer's supervised release. Comer served nearly 21 years of a life sentence before Obama commuted his and 213 other defendants' sentences in 2016.

    "More children from the fit; less from the unfit—that is the chief issue of birth control." [1] –Margaret Sanger, Birth Control Review Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, has an ignoble legacy as a racist who addressed the Ku Klux Klan and initiated a Negro Project to reduce the population of poor, uneducated African Americans whom she considered unfit to reproduce themselves. This Margaret Sanger—the real Margaret Sanger—is completely whitewashed in Parenthood propaganda, which deceitfully portrays Sanger as a champion of reproductive “choice.” Even more incriminating than Sanger’s racism, however, is her close association with Nazism. Sanger was part...

    It was just one of those nights for actor James Woods – minding his own business, fighting the good fight for conservative ideals on the Twitter front. Then it came – a full-frontal threat of violence from a guy named Matthew E. Jacob of Manhasset, Long Island. “If I see you in the street I will hit you over the head with a 2 x 4,” he threatened. But Jacob picked a fight with the wrong actor. Woods, best know for his bad-guy roles, took a screenshot of the threat and tweeted it to Twitter Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey,...

Back away from the firearm! Get on the ground! Turn around!’ And it was going...

    Last week, televangelist Jim Bakker reacted to the presidential election results by prophesying that God will punish people who live in counties that voted for Hillary Clinton. Bakker pointed to a map that showed the results of the election by county and said that “if you live in the blue—any spot that’s blue—I would say, ‘Oh God, help me. Oh God forgive me.’ Because those are the ones who came against the will of God in this election.” “I just want to tell you, God has spoken to me, I’ve seen under the ground in California, in LA, and God...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Reuters) - Leonard "Roscoe" Newton has been in and out of Florida's prisons since before he could vote, starting with a youthful conviction for burglary. He's been a free man for six years now with an important exception: he still can't vote. Newton, who is African American, is among nearly 1.5 million former felons who have been stripped of their right to vote in a state with a history of deciding U.S. presidential elections, sometimes by razor-thin margins of just a few hundred votes. Felons have been disenfranchised in Florida since 1868, although they can seek clemency to...
