Trump Campaign Files Lawsuit Against Philadelphia Over Election Offices

"Trump's campaign is suing Philadelphia over city leaders preventing campaign reps from watching people registering to vote or filling out mail in ballots in election officers there. The lawsuit filed tonight comes amid the president claiming he can on ly lose the battleground state of Pennsylvania if Democrats cheat and suggesting Philadelphia needs to be watched closely for election fraud. But election lawyers and city leaders and the state's top elections, people all say that there is no right under Pennsylvania law, even for a certified poll watcher to watch people do things like register to vote or fill out their ballots. Well along the same lines. During Tuesday's debate, President Trump told people to go into the polls and watch very carefully and that's raised concerns about voter intimidation. Tonight. The head of a local elections board has a strong response. Our board has zero Zero tolerance for any intimidation or wrongdoing at the Poles. To me, it's a criminal offence, and if that occurs, we will get the law enforcement involved. Jim Salik, president of the Montgomery County Board of Elections, says county police will be patrolling every voting center and Dropbox location. The board's Gilberto's Alia says it is possible to become a poll watcher, but you have to make arrangements in advance. Those individuals Can I just show up? Both men appeared at the virtual County Council meeting to provide an update on the election.

Activists On How To Sustain Movement Against Police Brutality

"Cove in 19 crisis has not just been a health crisis. It's been an economic crisis to and as economic crises arise, so it is unemployment and homelessness. In the years following the 2008 economic collapse, major cities saw a dramatic rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness. And now amid the Koven 19 pandemic, we're seeing a rising rate of addictions, according to the eviction lab in 17 cities that they tracked there have been more than 53,000 eviction since the pandemic began. Results, not just homeless men on the street, but Children living in shelters, families living in their cars and Wal Mart parking lots. People crowding into friends or relatives shared rooms this period of time since the Koven 19 pandemic hasn't just exacerbated the problem. It's also Given rise to a kind of grassroots activism against it. Earlier this year amid the national uprisings for racial justice against police brutality, anti homelessness activists have been playing an increasingly public role. In cities like Minneapolis in Philadelphia, activists have established homeless encampments and protected them from law enforcement sweeps that displaced the camps. I'm joined now by Will James, reporter with Can k X public radio in Washington and host of the Outsiders podcast about homelessness in Olympia. Great to have you here? Well, yeah. Hey, Matt, thanks and were also on the line with Anna or so a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer who has been reporting on a homeless encampment slash protest in center city, Philadelphia. Anna. Thanks for joining us. Hey, thanks for having me your welcome. So, guys, let's start with you. Will you've been following the homes this crisis throughout the West Coast? Can you just give us a picture to start of what This crisis looked like before the pandemic. It Yeah. So, you know, just take Washington State, for example. You know, we have an estimated 21,000 people who are homeless in Washington state. And on the West Coast. What kind of distinguishes the West Coast from the East Coast when it comes to homeless is thie proportion of people who are homeless who are living outside who are unsheltered who are living in tents in the woods and on the sides of highways? By some accounts, you know all the numbers and homelessness are a little bit shaky, very hard to get a solid number on them. But as many as two thirds of people who are unsheltered and homeless in the United States live in California, Oregon and Washington, so homelessness has been very visible crisis impossible to ignore in the West Coast, vast encampments of people living in city downtown's and in parks and before a coven 19 homelessness was the front and center issue. In so many West Coast cities. He was getting a lot of attention. There was a ton of advocacy it was, you know, in every City Council meeting every county council meeting now homelessness is one of many emergencies that states and cities and counties they're dealing with. And so We're seeing advocates fighting for attention for this issue in a way that that really hasn't been necessary in past years. How are they fighting for attention House out? What does that look like? It looks like kind of trying to use the media show up at City Council meetings and government meetings and just kind of reminding people in power that Even though there are so many crises that we're dealing with right now, this homelessness emergency hasn't gone away. In fact, much of the West Coast, many of the cities on the West Coast were in an official state of emergency around homelessness before this began, and so cove in 19 is actually you know, a state of emergency on top of a state of emergency in many of these cities. Well, Ana tell us what's going on in Philly. There have been a couple of homeless encampments around for months. But they apparently double is protest movements. Right? Can you explain a bit about what these look like? And what they're like? Yeah, you know, for Philadelphia. It's sort of a new and unique structure. We have had encampments of homeless folks for several years now that I have grown in size and in prominence, and the city has, you know, swept them cleared them out, and then people scatter and eventually re gather somewhere else. Now in the past couple of years, they've really been concentrated in the city's Kensington neighborhood. Which is a couple of miles away from center city, and from where you know, media and politicians sort of do their everyday work. Now the largest encampment of homeless folks, which was organized in June by affordable housing advocates, is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a very prominent space sort of in the middle of the city. It's where the famous art museum is located. It's surrounded by luxury condos. And it's really in a place that is impossible to ignore. And so we now have this interesting confluence of the racial justice movement mixed with the movement for affordable housing for people living in homelessness. And so it's presenting the city with this really new and interesting challenge because they just can't handle This encampment like they have others in the past. Are they making a connection between racial justice, the black lives matter, Movements and homeless activism. Are they making a connection there? Very much so thie Encampment was established two weeks into You know the racial justice protests here in Philadelphia, and it was immediately tied to black lives matter. The activists connect the criminal justice system and policing systems. With poverty and homelessness. There are a lot of black men and women who are living in this homeless encampment who have been in and out of the sister criminal justice system almost all of their lives and The organizers of this encampment are saying, Look, this is all connected. If we reform our policing systems to stop just proportionately impacting black people in Philadelphia, we can make a you know a real change in what poverty and homelessness looks like in this city if we can get people into housing, rather than putting them in temporary shelters or sending them back out onto the streets where, whereas the activists say Homelessness could be criminalized in a variety of ways. Whether that's folks being charged for substance used public drunk in this, the like these systems really are sort of inextricably linked. And how is the city handling this? Are they allowing this homeless encampment to just stay in the center of town? I understand is also a a second one near the Philadelphia Housing Authority's office. I imagine these folks can't stay living there and intense and whatnot for then, you know, indefinitely. Yeah. You know, it's been interesting. The city has given several eviction notices A TTE this point for both encampments. You're right. There is a smaller encampment in north Philadelphia outside. The Housing Authority, which runs public housing in the city. But so far the people living there, and the activists running these encampments have resisted thes eviction notices in a variety of ways. A couple months ago, there was a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the encampment. Residents, claiming their first Amendment right to protest was was being violated. And several weeks ago, the city put out a final eviction notice and Went, outreach workers and police showed up early one morning. At seven o'clock. There were dozens of activists who had gathered to defend the camps with sticks, boogie boards, makeshift shields, and it just was very clear that That a sweep of the encampment was going to be really ugly on DH. There was a ton of media there Tio to capture what occur so outreach workers and police sort of stepped back and No eviction has taken place yet. You know the city and the activists are are still sort of negotiating. Will

The 1918 Spanish Flu: Fact vs. Fiction

"This is Oscar Fernandes and today on the show, we put the spotlight on Texas to discuss the fact versus fiction of the Spanish flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen and to follow up on the one year anniversary of the mass shooting in El Paso Texas, the largest mass shooting targeted against Latinos, and so there's no need for a long introduction today on the show because our guest today has a lot to say on how the US in various ways is repeating history in its poor response to the pandemic. The scapegoating of others who have no control of the pandemic and which community ultimately praise the costs for the pandemic and so with us on the show today is w Dorado Romo. He's a researcher and the author of a ringside seat to revolution and underground cultural history of El Paso, and is which is available on single prosperous that we joins us today to combat to show W doral Romo. Thank you so much. Is Good to have you with us once again and doesn't probably no way of escaping any news whatsoever as it pertains to the current. Co Ed nineteen pandemic. You know it's affected almost every corner of society both here in the US and abroad. But one thing that's been cited as a frame of reference of valuable one, I would say is the Spanish flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen. Now in recent weeks, politicians and media people have stated that the US has not seen anything like the in pandemic since the Spanish flu of nineteen eighteen. Even you know Donald Trump and self has been cited Spanish flu in his own ignorant ways. I would I would say. But when reasons I want to talk to you was because this soon is the Spanish flu pandemic came up in mainstream media and the first thing that came to mind was Our discussion that we had last year with regards to the bath riots and it gives me the feeling that there's some things missing as it pertains to Race River Garson and the narrative of the Spanish flu pandemic. So a want to know based on what you've seen this far when people sight to space Lou, what do you feel is missing in this important narrative? I think you hit it on the nail. The idea that the pandemic was just a problem of perhaps Just, a a medical problem is something that's usually citing it by these media reports but. Raised and war have a huge part to play in in this. So called Spanish food and I think one of the things that has. Not Been. Looked into as much as. A huge role that the United States played in this called Spanish who I mean I I, I would call it the American sloop because they didn't start in Spain. It actually most of the evidence that we have historically the first official report. Of the Spanish flu was from Pasco County, council. And it was in a in a US military camp. Ford Riley canceled that it I broke out now there's other theories but most of the evidence points to that so this is Not so much the Spanish food at the American flu and I think that has been something that has not been as deeply investigated in many of these. Reports. So the question has to be asked, how did the Spanish flu get its name? If it was actually based here in Kansas as he said. Well. During. World War One, it was censorship. So the when I broke out in March of nineteen eighteen and one military cab. There was hardly anything written about it. It was actually A. A. Cook at the base of contract. And within. A few days there were hundreds of US soldiers? That, That were hit that that excel stake as Devo them died. From the flu. So the reason that is called a Spanish food is because Spain was a neutral country. So they were able to report. The fact that even even some of the most prominent. political figures from Spain were infected contractors to flu. So the name stuck that was the first. Was the first country where there was actually uncensored reporting about the flu to the main stuff but it was. It's also I think this idea of thickness. Always comes from the other side. The His what would you call it? The other association of of disease. You know the. Americans in the very beginning they and some of them playing some of the news sources would blame on the German thinking that it was a form of bacteriological warfare. Germans also had it. And they blamed it on the Russians they call it the the Russian has the Russians blamed on the Chinese everybody blamed on on on someone else the white South Africans called the the copy of. The Black Man Species? So I. Think this is part of. Stigmatization of the other using DC. To kind of Yeah. To stigmatize other racists, other nationality has always been kind of a universal part of this. Funny enough. Even back in nineteen. A lot of the banish medical. So rotation. Would pointed out the unfairness calling the Spanish flu they knew that it had not originated there

Washington, DC - Montgomery County officials approve policy on limiting police use of force, no-knock warrants

"Year, there were 140 search warrants executed by police in Montgomery County, Maryland. Of those 140 search warrants, 108 of them were referred to as No knock warrant, which means that usually SWAT team members go in without notice because there is I'm concerned that there will be ah potential violent situation. History of illegal weapons in the home or domicile that the police are are entering under that warrant, and therefore they have to have that element of surprise. Now, in the last 40 years in Montgomery County, there have been only three incidents of a no knock warrant that have involved his shooting. Three in the last 40 years. But because of the tragic killing of Briana Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. The elected officials, known as the Montgomery County Council decided to eliminate no knock warrants yesterday from the tactics and procedures that the Montgomery County police can employ in executing their job. It makes no sense to anyone who understands law enforcement and we need to talk about it. Lee Holland is the corporate vice president of the Fraternal Order of Police. Large 35 which represents cops in Montgomery County, Mr Holland. That's just one thing that they did yesterday. But I want to start there. What am I missing here? What is what happened to Brianna Taylor have to do it all with your cops in Montgomery County. I'm not exactly sure what Louisville has to do with the officers in Montgomery County. That's kind of same thing nationwide. The issues that happen nationwide eyes being brought into here through the council, as if it happens here, McDermott County and here in the Greek army We have a great police force. The men and women here do a great job. But I don't understand what changes are needed because things were happening elsewhere. And in fact, as the Montgomery County Council, I contemplated these changes to police policy. Were you consulted where the members of the police force consulted? What voice did you have in figuring this out? So we are submitted letters, which were not put as part of the packet. I testified the one question when I was called up on to the zoom platform over collected barring piece, But besides that piece of legislation, we had no input. And was there any rationale in terms of what did the politicians here were they able to point to specific incidents that have occurred in Montgomery County that rationalized to change of policy? No, they didn't. They didn't point of specific instance in this county. In fact, there's been talk from some council members, saying there's a green racism within our police department, and there is no basis of facts on that. So I mean, what are you able to do here in terms of representing the cops of Montgomery County and ensuring that they have the tools that they have to have available to them to to do their job? Well, I think one is being on shows like yourself and the other media to let him know exactly what this bill does, because what this bill does is is Help or not help. I should say it. Hamstrings us from investigating crimes or stopping crimes right after they are committed, because now the way we had reasonable suspicion to stop somebody where crime we now need probable cause to detain somebody. To put our hands on somebody, and that creates a whole different standard that's going to let people walk away from from crimes. And I like Officer stopped. You issued a statement yesterday to the media about this, and I appreciate you joining us live here, Leigh Holland. You issued a statement that was highly critical of what the Montgomery County Council did will Jawando one of the council members, he said, this on Twitter, I'll read it to you says It's very unfortunate that at this critical moment in history, the Fraternal Order of Police doesn't recognise the importance of de escalation and living in the use of The force as last resort to protect the lives of residents and rebuild public trust. I'd love for you to respond to that, in terms of the idea of de escalation and limiting the use of deadly force is the last resort. First of all, isn't it already a last resort? Absolutely, And it's unfortunate that counts numbered. Wanda doesn't want a partner with us on really police reform. We always wanted be escalate as much as we can. But the escalation is a two way street. Outside of wants a deescalate, too, And we always want to use deadly force as a last resort. We want to create time and distance. We want to get back up there. We want to use the less lethal force as much as possible, but sometimes that just can't happen. Really police reform needs to be something that everybody wants. That's supported by the police officers and supported by the community, not just one side, and that's what you're trying to get here, which we started at the bottom. Are we training? How are we recruiting? These sorts of things, not how can we hold off a cannibal Hackney fire officers. We don't like what they do when

"Replace him as far as a running for governor she has not she has until tomorrow to make that decision she's been contemplating her her options but as of this moment she has not announced one way or the other so i would imagine we'll get that announcement later today or tomorrow the comment is as far as this decision of the council to choose somebody to replace mr cabinets in in the baltimore county council i i think they should at least have several members of the press they're when they do this maybe not the general public but depressed because otherwise it would seem like what you call a star chamber or a kangaroo court type of situation i would agree with you i think now more than ever we need public transparency to shine the light on the inner workings of these councils and again i will put this put this out you yes the kennedy council persons are elected but so is the county executive now i know in this particular case they have to appoint one and because the new county council executive county executive won't be chosen till november but i still think because the public elected kevin cabinets the public should at least have a say in it or be aware of it or see the process as it unfolds so anthony thanks for the call sean and frank how're you guys thank you when properly was governor he appointed carmen amazonas who was a delegate to the parole board excuse me i was chair republican central committee at the time state law is the county central committee is responsible for selecting the replacement of any elected official to vacate an elected seat regardless of why fake it whether it's death resignation whatever the case it it's supposed to be up to the county central committee now i can tell you when we went through this process i was under immense pressure to keep it pride to keep the public out to keep the media now and my take on it was she was elected by the people the people should have some kind of input at least participation in the process of selecting her replacement and i believe that baltimore county regardless of how they decide to whether it's central committee or the county council that selects the the replacement it's still should be open to.
