Gun-Control Backers Concerned About Changing Federal Courts By DON THOMPSON Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) _ California has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation, including a ban on the type of high-capacity ammunition magazines used in some of the nation's deadliest mass shootings. How long those types of laws will stand is a growing concern among gun control advocates in California and elsewhere. A federal judiciary that is becoming increasingly conservative under President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate has gun control advocates on edge. They worry that federal courts, especially if Trump wins a second term next year and Republicans hold the Senate, will take such an expansive view of Second Amendment rights that they might overturn strict gun control laws enacted in Democraticleaning states. The U.S. Supreme Court so far has left plenty of room for states to enact their own gun legislation, said Adam Winkler, a gun policy expert at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law. But he said the success of the Trump administration in appointing federal judges, including to the high court, could alter that. “Those judges are likely to be hostile to gun-control measures,” Winkler said. “So I think the courts overall have made a shift to the right on guns. We'll just have to see how that plays out.” The legal tug-of-war already is playing out in California. The state banned the sale of high-capacity ammunition magazines nearly two decades ago as one of its numerous responses to deadly mass shootings; a voter initiative passed three years ago expanded on that, banning all ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds even among gun owners who already possessed them. Earlier this year, a Republican-appointed federal judge overturned the ban, triggering a weeklong bullet

buying spree among California gun owners before he put his decision on hold pending appeal. The same judge is overseeing another lawsuit brought by gun-rights groups that seeks to repeal a state law requiring background checks for ammunition buyers. Legal experts, lawmakers and advocates on both sides said the decision in the case over ammunition limits foreshadows more conflicts between Democraticleaning states seeking to impose tighter gun laws and an increasingly conservative federal judiciary. “What you're looking at in the Southern District of California is happening all over the country,” said Frank Zimring, a University of California, Berkeley law professor who is an expert on gun laws. Trump has the opportunity to fill a higher percentage of federal court vacancies than any president at this point in his first term since George H.W. Bush nearly three decades ago. To date, he has nominated 194 candidates for federal judgeships and has had 146 confirmed, out of 860 total federal district court judicial seats, according to the conservative Heritage Foundation. Of 179 seats on the federal appellate courts, Trump has nominated 46 judges and had 43 confirmed. He is poised to fill 105 vacancies in the district courts and four in the appeals courts, according to the Heritage Foundation. The changes to the federal judiciary could mean that even gun restrictions that were previously upheld by appointees of former Republican presidents may now be in jeopardy, said Hannah Shearer, litigation director at the San Francisco-based Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. “I think the judiciary is headed into a more extreme place on gun control issues because of President Trump's appointees,” she said. Even when gun and ammunition limits are upheld, those cases eventually could make their way to the U.S. Supreme Court, where Trump may already have tipped the

balance. The court is currently poised to take up its first Second Amendment case in about a decade. It's a challenge to a law New York City passed that prohibited people who have home handgun licenses from taking their guns outside the city for target practice or to a second home. The city has told the court the case should be dropped, however, because it has relaxed its law. Among other cases working their way through the courts are challenges to a California ban on certain handguns, other states' longstanding restrictions on carrying concealed weapons and limitations on interstate handgun sales. Yet forecasting how the Supreme Court might act, or even whether it will take certain cases, is fraught with uncertainty. The court has steered clear of gun-rights cases since establishing an individual right to possess guns in 2008 2010, and has let stand a number of state gun restrictions. Still, gun-rights supporters are excited by the changes brought by Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate. The upcoming Supreme Court session “could be a real game-changer” with Trump's appointments of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, said Chuck Michel, an attorney who represents both the National Rifle Association and the affiliated California Rifle & Pistol Association. “To the extent that the composition of the court has changed and that it will give the Second Amendment back its teeth, it's very important,” Michel said. “It looks like there's enough votes on the court right now to reset the standard.” His clients are challenging California's ammunition background check and extended magazine ban before U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez, an appointee of former President George W. Bush. Other states that limit ammunition magazines in some way, typically between 10 and 20 rounds, are Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New

Jersey, New York and Vermont, according to the Giffords Law Center. Democrats said the prospect of four more years of Trump judicial appointments is helping energize their opposition to his re-election. “This would be one of the lasting legacies of Donald Trump,” said former California state Senate leader Kevin de Leon, a Democrat from Los Angeles who carried or supported many of the state's firearms restrictions, including limits on military-style assault weapons. “When Trump is gone, they will be there for lifetime appointments.” Democratic lawmakers said they will continue pushing more firearms restrictions even as some fear they could be thwarted in the federal courts. State Sen. Anthony Portantino, a Democrat from Southern California, acknowledges the potential for state gun restrictions to be overturned by federal judges, but said the stakes are too high to back down. He noted that the gunman who recently killed three people and himself in Gilroy, at an annual garlic festival, was 19 and legally bought his assault-style rifle in Nevada before illegally bringing it into California. The gunman also carried a 75-round drum magazine and multiple 40-round magazines, all banned under California law. “That he could smuggle that across state lines and kill a 6-year-old, to me that's an example of why we need federal action and why California should continue to lead and tell our story,” Portantino said. He is proposing a ban on anyone buying more than one gun a month and prohibiting almost all gun sales to people under age 21.

Experts Push for Domestic Terrorism Law After Attacks By STEFANIE DAZIO and ERIC TUCKER Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Seven days, three mass shootings, 34 dead. The FBI has labeled two of those attacks , at a Texas Walmart and California food festival, as domestic terrorism

_ acts meant to intimidate or coerce a civilian population and affect government policy. But the bureau hasn't gone that far with a shooting at an Ohio entertainment district. Even if there's a domestic terrorism investigation, no specific domestic terrorism law exists in the federal

criminal code. That means the Justice Department must rely on other laws such as hate crimes and weapons offenses in cases of politically motivated shootings. The legal gap has prompted many survivors, victims' families, law enforcement officials and legal experts to call on lawmakers to create a domestic terrorism law that could aid investigators and punish perpetrators. “Calling something for what it is is an important first step in combating this problem,” said Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. However, supporters of a domestic terrorism law say some lawmakers may be reluctant to push legislation that could target white supremacists. “When you dismiss it as a mass shooting or a hate crime or some crazed gunman, you're minimizing what impact it has,” said Daryl Johnson, a former senior domestic terrorism analyst at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. “It's a double standard. We should be calling all ideologically motivated violence terrorism, whether it comes from the white variety or the Muslim variety.” The gunmen in Ohio and Texas appear to be white, while the Gilroy shooter identified himself as Iranian and Italian on social media. In El Paso, authorities suspect a 21-year-old gunman posted anti-Hispanic writings online before killing 22 people Saturday at a Walmart store. In Gilroy, authorities say, the 19-year-old attacker who killed three people, including two children, had compiled a “target list” that included religious groups, federal buildings and both major political parties. Search warrant records released Thursday show authorities found a passport, clown mask, wilderness survival guide and bottle rockets – as well as a pamphlet for the garlic festival he targeted – in his car. In Dayton, Ohio, however, the FBI has not yet said if it considers an attack that killed nine people to be domestic terrorism. The bureau says the 24-year-old gunman expressed a desire to commit a mass shooting and showed an interest in violent ideology. In addition, posts from what appears to be his Twitter account endorsed communism, bemoaned President Donald Trump's election and supported Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is running for president. Todd Lindgren, an FBI spokesman in the Cincinnati office, said the bureau is investigating the shooter's motive and ideologies_ including combing through his social media _ but he declined to address a potential domestic terrorism aspect of the case. Domestic terrorism has historically been applied to violent anti-government extremists such as Timothy McVeigh, who was executed for the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Crimes targeting African Americans, Jewish people and other minorities have more regularly been treated as hate crimes, rather than terrorist attacks, and investigated by FBI criminal agents instead of counterterrorism agents.

The FBI Agents Association, which represents thousands of active-duty and retired agents, has called for Congress to make domestic terrorism a federal crime to ensure investigators and prosecutors have the “best tools” to fight it. Mary McCord, former head of the Justice Department's national security division, has also advocated for such a law. “It is something we may see come out of this, we may not,” she said. The punishment for mass killings can be life imprisonment or even death, regardless of the label applied to the crime. Even if a shooter dies, as occurred in California and Ohio, experts said a federal law would help authorities gather evidence and serve as a deterrent. The legal framework is different in international terrorism cases, where a wide-reaching statute makes it a crime to support a designated foreign terror group such as Islamic State or al-Qaida and often produces arrests long before violence occurs. As a result, it's a crime for an American to fly to Syria to join Islamic State, but it's not illegal for an American to travel in the U.S. to meet with Ku Klux Klan leaders or other white supremacists. “When politics get involved, we end up playing games,” Levin said. “Had the El Paso killer been named Ahmed, the response of some in government and some in the media would have been markedly different.” In national security cases with an overseas connection, the FBI can obtain secret surveillance warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to monitor communications of people they suspect of being agents of a foreign power. Investigators in domestic criminal cases don't have that tool. They can apply for court-authorized wiretaps but must show there's probable cause that such surveillance will turn up criminal activity. Civil liberties groups wary of additional federal surveillance powers say the FBI and Justice Department already have the tools they need. The FBI says it doesn't investigate anyone based on ideology alone. Investigators need some sign that they are planning a crime. Many act alone, without any affiliation to a group. “If they're just kind of out there sitting in a basement, not going on anything that we can tie them to, they are very hard to find,” said Robert Anderson, a former executive assistant director in charge of the FBI's criminal branch. One similarity between contemporary international and domestic acts of terror is the ease of pulling them off. The Islamic State has encouraged followers to kill where they are, with whatever weapon they have, instead of plotting grandiose bomb plots. Recent suspects in white nationalist killings have taken a page from that book. “Honestly, it's a pretty easy thing to do if you think about it,” Anderson said of mass shootings. “This isn't like you're going out and building a bomb, this isn't like you're thinking about taking over an airplane.”

Jumbo Jet Turned Desert Nightclub Returns to Burning Man Received by Newsfinder from AP RENO, Nev. (AP) – A jumbo jetliner that got stuck in the desert for nearly a month last year has returned for the upcoming Burning Man festival after organizers agreed to post a bond. The Reno Gazette Journal reports the Bureau of Land Management granted a special permit to the foundation that converted the former Boeing 747 cargo plane into a nightclub. Burning Man officials reviewed the Big Imagination Foundation's plans before the group transported the aircraft last weekend to federal land in the Black Rock Desert 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of Reno.

Group leaders haven't disclosed the performance bond's cost. But they say they have a better plan to get the plane off the playa at the conclusion of the counterculture festival running Aug. 25-Sept. 2. Critics say it severely damaged the playa last year when it dug holes into the soft alkali dust and got stuck. The Big Imagination Foundation was able to move the plane by late September using a 1,000-foot-long (304-kilometer-long) path of 4-inch-thick (10-centimeterthick) mats laid down in stages. BLM spokesman Rudy Evenson said the permit

By MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press When three Pennsylvania Superior Court judges gather Monday to hear Bill Cosby's appeal of his sexual assault conviction, more than the aging comedian's freedom may be at stake. As the first celebrity convicted in the (hash)MeToo era, the court scrutiny of the case could cement _ or threaten _ the movement itself. “If it's reversed, I worry that it's going to play into the narrative that stories of people subjected to genderbased violence are not going to be believed,” said Professor Margaret Johnson, who teaches gender law at the University of Baltimore School of Law. “I've been struck by ... the power of the backlash against (hash)MeToo.” Just recently, a lawyer for actor Cuba Gooding Jr., accused of grabbing a woman's breast at a New York nightclub, challenged her mental state as the case was sent to trial. The lawyer, Mark Heller, said he was starting “the “Not Me Movement,” under the hashtag “(hash)NotMe.” Cosby, charged over a 2004 encounter, first went on trial in June 2017 _ months before accusations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein would unleash the (hash) MeToo era. Prosecutors asked to call 13 other women to bolster the account of Cosby accuser Andrea Constand. Judge Steven O'Neill allowed just one, and the suburban Philadelphia jury deadlocked after six days of deliberations. Cosby, long beloved as “America's Dad” for his TV

role as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on “The Cosby Show,” left the Montgomery County Courthouse triumphant while his lawyers delivered a scathing attack on the judge and prosecutor written by his wife, Camille Cosby. Ten months later, the (hash)MeToo movement in full force, District Attorney Kevin Steele doubled down, asking to call 19 of the scores of Cosby accusers at the retrial. O'Neill settled on five, whose accounts of being drugged and molested by the powerful star echoed Constand's. Chelan Lasha, in her testimony, recalled seeking him out as a 17-year-old aspiring model and actress, only to be violated. “Dr. Huxtable wouldn't do this. Why are you doing this to me? You're supposed to help me be successful,” she recalled thinking. Accuser Heidi Thomas called the acclaimed entertainer and arts patron “a serial rapist.” The second jury took just 14 hours to convict Cosby of all three felony sex-assault charges, finding that he drugged and violated the 30-year-old Constand when she went to his home for career advice. “Not once were race or the (hash)MeToo movement ever discussed, nor did either factor into our decision,” the jury said in a statement, referencing defense suggestions that racism and (hash)MeToo tainted the case. Instead, they said, they found Constand “credible and compelling.” The appeals court will consider more than a half-

stipulates that the vehicle will be taken off the playa via paved road after the event. He said it's the only art piece at Burning Man that requires a separate permit. The bond will be returned to the foundation if it meets all expectations in the permit. Big Imagination Foundation CEO Ken Feldman said volunteers moved the plane from its holding site on private ranch property to the ancient lake bed on Sunday. The plane has been one of the largest installations at the annual, 80,000-person event since 2016. Laura Blaylock, a Gerlach resident and conservationist,

said she's furious that the plane is returning. She said the BLM's core mission is to protect the Black Rock-High Rock National Conservation Area, and allowing the plane to crush desert dunes to and from its storage site fails to do that. “Somebody said, ‘How else would they get it out?’ Not my problem. Get a helicopter,” Blaylock told the newspaper. Evenson said part of the cost of the permit will cover the expense of replanting and then fencing the dune area the plane passed through while being brought onto public land.

Cosby Appeal Tests Other Accusers’ Testimony in #MeToo Era dozen alleged trial errors, including the defense claim that Cosby had a promise from a former prosecutor that he would never be charged in the case. That promise, they said, led Cosby to give deposition testimony in Constand's 2005 lawsuit that prompted his arrest when it was unsealed in 2015. The defense is also challenging O'Neill's decision to let the jury hear portions of that testimony, in which Cosby acknowledges getting quaaludes in the 1970s to give women before sex. Still, the “prior bad act” testimony from the other women is the crux of the appeal. Pennsylvania law allows it only in limited cases: to show a “signature" crime pattern ; to show an act was not an accident; and to rebut defense claims of consent. Cosby's lawyers say it was used just to throw mud at him. “The five (accuser) witnesses were inconsistent in their allegations, remote in time, and used solely as a mechanism to promote hysteria,” appellate lawyer Kristen L. Weisenberger wrote in a recent brief. Two parties have filed amicus briefs to support the conviction: the state Attorney General's Office, and RAINN, the nonprofit Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. “Because this case pitted the victim's otherwiseuncorroborated credibility against that of a popular,

internationally known celebrity entertainer, evidence of his relevant pattern of prior criminal conduct to rebut his consent claim was clearly admissible,” the Attorney General's Office wrote. But some defense lawyers believe O'Neill should have explained why he let more accusers testify at the retrial. “The fact that he expanded the number from one to five raises a very substantial question,” said lawyer Alan Tauber, who represented a Philadelphia church official whose child-endangerment conviction was overturned because too many priest-abuse victims testified. “What changed between the first trial and the second trial to justify that?” Cosby turned 82 last month in state prison, where he is serving a three- to 10-year term . Whatever the outcome of his criminal appeal, his insurance company, to his dismay, has quietly settled at least nine pending defamation lawsuits filed by women accusers. The Superior Court panel, which includes two women, reviews Cosby's case as a string of other accused predators await their day in court _ Weinstein, and singer R. Kelly among them. “This is such a high-profile case,” RAINN President Scott Berkowitz said. “It's particularly important if survivors around the country are watching it closely and making up their minds as to whether to come forward and report their assault to police. And so a bad verdict, or appeal in this case, could be really discouraging.”

Hobbs & Shaw Still No. 1 Against Slew of Newcomers By LINDSEY BAHR AP Film Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Audiences helped the “Fast & Furious” spinoff “Hobbs & Shaw” take another lap at No. 1 even with an onslaught of four new major releases this weekend. From family films to R-rated adult fare, moviegoers had their pick as studios tried to capitalize on the waning days of summer. But although August can be a great opportunity for non-superhero films, it's not a sure thing. And this weekend some, such as “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” fared better than others, like the Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish mob thriller “The Kitchen.” “There are always going to be casualties when there are this many openers,” said Paul Dergarabedian, the senior media analyst for box office tracker Comscore. “They cannot always be lined up in the top four rankings.” “Hobbs & Shaw” managed to hold on to first place again. According to estimates from Universal Pictures Sunday, the Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham action flick fell 58% from its first weekend but added $25.4 million from North American theaters. It's now grossed $108.5 million domestically and $332.6 million worldwide. Second place went to the PG-13 film “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” from CBS Films and eOne Entertainment, which cut through the clutter with a better than expected $20.8 million. Lionsgate distributed the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror which had been tracking to open in the mid-teens. “The filmmakers and the team at CBS Films are thrilled that moviegoers are embracing the world of `Scary Stories,”' del Toro said in a statement Sunday. “It's particularly satisfying to see families experiencing the fun of the movie together.” Good reviews helped raise its profile, although audiences were more underwhelmed after the fact, slapping it with a C CinemaScore. Dergarabedian noted that, even with a PG-13 rating, horror movies once again prove to be, “a consistent draw at the box office.” Close behind in third was “The Lion King” with $20 million in its fifth weekend in theaters. With $1.3 billion globally, it's now surpassed “Beauty and the Beast” as Disney's highest-grossing “live-action” release. Newcomer “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” from Paramount Pictures, found a healthy audience too, earning an estimated $17 million for a fourth place start. Starring Isabela Moner, “Dora,” based on the popular television series, also got good reviews from critics and audiences, who gave it an A CinemaScore. And in fifth place, Quentin Tarantino's star-vehicle “Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood” added $11.6 million and crossed the $100 million mark. But not all the newcomers were so lucky. The dog owner tearjerker “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” with Milo Ventimiglia, opened in sixth place with $8.1 million. The Fox 2000 property was inherited by Disney in the takeover. And the '70s-set McCarthy and Haddish crime thriller “The Kitchen” flopped in seventh with only $5.5 million. Based on an obscure Vertigo comic, the film from first time director Andrea Berloff (an Oscar-nominated screenwriter) features both McCarthy and Haddish in more dramatic roles. But critics were not impressed: The film currently has a dismal 20% on Rotten Tomatoes and audiences also largely stayed away. Warner Bros. distribution head Jeff Goldstein said

The first Fast & Furious spin-off film, Hobbs & Shaw, which features Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock, Idris Elba, and Jason Statham.

that they were “very disappointed” with the results. “I think that the filmmakers took a very bold approach to their choice with the movie and I think it just didn't resonate with the viewers,” Goldstein said. “The good news is the movie was a fairly low-budgeted film.” Audiences also had a slew of new limited releases to choose between: The BTS concert film “Bring the Soul: The Movie,” which earned $2.3 million from only 873 locations; “Brian Banks,” based on the real story of a false accusation that upends a promising football star's life which debuted in 1,240 locations and earned $2.1 million; “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” with Shia LaBeouf and Dakota Johnson, which earned $205,236 from 17 locations; and “After the Wedding,” with Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore ($57,124 from five locations). Still the weekend is down 10.2% and the year continues to lag 6.3% too. “Audiences are confounded by the number of newcomers,” Dergarabedian said. “There was so much overlap with all of these titles.” But the marketplace is already looking ahead to the

fall and the release of “It Chapter Two.” “It's going to feel like summer in September when `It' opens,” Dergarabedian said. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 1."Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” $25.4 million ($60.8 million international). 2."Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” $20.8 million ($2.5 million international). 3."The Lion King,” $20 million ($51.4 million international). 4."Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” $17 million ($2.5 million international). 5."Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood,” $11.6 million ($7.7 million international). 6."The Art of Racing in the Rain,” $8.1 million ($1.1 million international). 7."The Kitchen,” $5.5 million.

8."Spider-Man: Far From Home,” $5.3 million ($5.3 million international). 9."Toy Story 4,” $4.4 million ($9.7 million international). 10."Bring the Soul: The Movie,” $2.3 million ($5.9 million international). Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at international theaters (excluding the U.S. and Canada), according to Comscore: 1. “Ne Zha,” $64.4 million. 2. “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” $60.8 million. 3. “The Lion King,” $51.4 million. 4. “The Bravest,” $28.9 million. 5. “Line Walker 2,” $27.9 million. 6. “Shanghai Fortress,” $16.2 million. 7. “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” $15.4 million. 8. “Exit,” $12.5 million. 9. “The Battle: Roar to Victory,” $11.9 million. 10. “Toy Story 4,” $9.7 million.

White SupremacyWhite Nationalism

Calling Out Racism

is More Vital Than Ever!

The press is the only privately-owned institution specifically mentioned by name in the U.S. Constitution. Our words have power and powerful words have a responsibility to speak truth to those that are listening. Telling the truth, in its entirety, is the most objective stance any journalist can take on any subject.

By Stacy M. Brown NNPA Newswire Correspondent The spectre of white nationalists, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others that wrongly maintain that the American flag and free speech provide them with moral justification and protection for their abhorrent behaviors, has seen too many journalists frame their inadequate coverage under a cloak of “objectivity.” Journalism is reverting to the impersonal mode of coverage that chronicled the civil rights movement: The Spectator’s Perspective. That the President of the United States can get away with telling four American citizens and congresswomen of color to “go back to your country,” reminds too many black journalists of a strikingly similar message from Alabama Governor George Wallace, a Democrat, more than 50 years ago. During his 1963 inaugural speech, Wallace said: “I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever.” In its All Things Considered and Radio Diaries series, NPR called the speech, “A fiery pledge forgiven, but not forgotten.” “Reflecting on his response to the speech at the time,” writes NPR, “Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat, originally from Alabama, says he took Wallace’s words personally. ‘My governor, this elected official, was saying in effect, you are not welcome, you are not welcome. Words can be very powerful. Words can be dangerous,’ Lewis says. ‘Gov. Wallace never pulled a trigger. He never fired a gun. But in his speech, he created the environment for others to pull the trigger, in the days, the weeks and months to come.’” Reporting both sides of a viewpoint may enable a

publication to boast about high journalistic standards but ignoring larger truths in the process nullifies any benefits gained. Earlier this month, while in the midst of a rant-byracist-tweet barrage from the fingertips of President Trump, the New York Times ran the headline, “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism.” Many Times readers reacted by threatening to cancel their subscription. The press is the only privately-owned institution specifically mentioned by name in the U.S. Constitution. Our words have power and powerful words have a

responsibility to speak truth to those that are listening. Telling the truth, in its entirety, is the most objective stance any journalist can take on any subject. The race to present white-leaning objectivity in news coverage leads large institutions, like the New York Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, and others, to bestow credence and importance through their coverage – or lack thereof – to the hate speech and acts taking place during today’s resurgence of the civil rights movement. Mainstream press’ coverage also serves as a reminder that people of color, whose realities, life stories and

viewpoints have resulted in a different standard for objectivity, are often best served by the Black Press. While the nation heralded the bravery of reporters who were embedded with front line troops during the war in Viet Nam, the first to be covered by television, few knew the names of the many black journalists who risked their lives to expose the truth of the criminal-level hatred that filled the pages of the Black Press during the same period of our history. Similarly, it’s important that black journalists and other journalists of color apply our unique insights and perspectives to confront and report the truth of our modern and increasingly racist hate-filled era. “It appears that way because we are witnessing the dismantling of so many important pillars of our system of government,” said Madison Paige, the founder and CEO of Bold Blue Campaigns, a grassroots-supported political consultancy. “Regardless of what political party you affiliate with, what we see under the current administration is recognizably destructive. It stands to send the country back, not decades, but centuries,” Paige said. However, “the Black Press of America is saying, ‘No, this is unacceptable, and we won’t go back,’” she said. Many are realizing that the myth of white supremacy is easily debunked, said Essence Cohen Fields, a Pennsylvaniabased licensed professional counselor. “The increased violence and blatant expression of hate, is a direct correlation to the white supremacists’ fear of being viewed as, dare I say, equal, and people are no longer getting their information from one or two sources,” said Fields. The Black Press now has a global connection that has allowed for a restoration of pride in being of African descent, which is uncomfortable for some, she said. Since the founding of the Black Press 192 years ago, African American-owned newspapers have served their communities in a way no other publications have. Often operating on shoe-string budgets, understaffed, and working with other severe limitations, the Black Press always has maintained its mission as the Voice of Black America. That tradition has held through many transitions – through the aftermath of slavery, the Jim Crow Era and the Civil Rights Movement. The Black Press also continues to call out racism, which mainstream newspapers have either failed to do, or whose response has been tepid when compared to the magnitude of the crisis. White supremacists hold as big of a platform as they have had since the civil rights movement, said Nikita Banks, a psychotherapist, clinical social worker, and host of the Black Therapist Podcast. “Newsrooms are biased against people of color. diversity in the media is necessary more than ever,” Banks said. “But we also have to create a resurgence of our black publications and cultivate a space where they not only exist but thrive again,” she said.

Who Cares About Fair Elections? … people are organizing and attempting to overcome interference by mobilizing the Democratic base of voters. Barbara Arnwine, who founded and leads the Transformative Justice Coalition (www.tjcoalition.org) gathered dozens of activists to participate in a day-long strategy session on voting rights on August 7, fifty-four years after the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965. Arnwine’s organization is among the many planning to ensure both voter turnout and election fairness in the upcoming elections.

By Julianne Malveaux NNPA Newswire Contributor The US House of Representatives passed the Securing America’s Fair Elections (SAFE) Act in June by a nearly totally partisan vote of 225-184 in late June. Only one Republican voted for legislation that would mandate paper ballots, increase election security, and create safeguards to prevent foreign interference in our elections. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) opposes the legislation and won’t even allow it to be introduced or voted on in the Senate. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was eloquently angry when she raised a series of questions, “I just would really like to know from my Republican friends, what’s wrong with replacing outdated, vulnerable voting equipment? What is wrong with requiring paper ballot voting systems to ensure the integrity of our elections? What is wrong with enacting strong cybersecurity requirements for elections technology vendors and voting systems? We must be relentless in the defense of our democracy, fighting on all fronts to keep America safe.” Republicans don’t seem to want to defend democracy,

though. They simply want to win. And McConnell, who behaves like the 45th President’s handmaiden, has abandoned his duty as Senate leader in favor of partisan shenanigans. Former special counsel Robert Mueller III testified that Russian election interference was happening even as he testified, too many Republicans chose to ignore his warning because it does not serve them. McConnell is among those who seem to hope that Russian interference aids Republicans and perhaps ensures the reelection of the most odious human being ever to occupy the Oval Office. Meanwhile, people are organizing and attempting to overcome interference by mobilizing the Democratic base of voters. Barbara Arnwine, who founded and leads the Transformative Justice Coalition (www.tjcoalition. org) gathered dozens of activists to participate in a daylong strategy session on voting rights on August 7, fiftyfour years after the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965. Arnwine’s organization is among the many planning to ensure both voter turnout and election fairness in the upcoming elections. With so many focused on the 2020 election, and appropriately so, it is essential to note that 2019 elections are also significant. Kentucky, Louisiana, and Mississippi will elect governors, New Jersey, and Virginia are among those who will elect state legislators, and some cities will elect mayors. Activists can use these elections to test our broken system, and as practice, perhaps for 2020. But activists must also be clear that Republicans don’t seem to want fair elections. If they did, McConnell would schedule a vote on the SAFE Act, which provides dollars for better, safer, voting technology. Both houses of Congress are on recess this August month, and won’t reconvene until after Labor Day. Most members of Congress will say that they aren’t taking a six-week vacation because they are also working in their districts. Citizens need to meet with them, organize town hall meetings, and get input from those recalcitrant Republicans (all of the Democrats voted for the SAFE Act) on why they eschew fair elections. Some of them use a “state’s right” argument, suggesting that states can manage their own elections on their own terms. African Americans understand states’ rights all too well. States’ rights made it necessary for our nation to pass a Voting Rights Act, despite the guarantees included in the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments. The question to ask is the questions Speaker Pelosi asked when the legislation came up for a vote on June 27. What’s wrong with election fairness? It is indisputable that Russia interfered in the 2016 elections to aid the 45th President. It is undeniable that millions of voters have been purged from the polls since 2016 with Secretaries of State eager to influence elections, as they did in both Georgia and Florida in 2018. It is indisputable that while Florida voters attempted to restore votes to former felons, the legislature undermined that vote by requiring people to pay all fines and fees before they are allowed to vote. If the Congressional vote on the SAFE Act is any indication, Republicans don’t want election fairness. They want to win by whatever means necessary. We’ve invaded foreign countries to “ensure democracy,” but our Congress does not have the decency to ensure democracy at home. Since the government won’t do its work, civil society organizations will have to. Kudos to Barbara Arnwine and the Transformative Justice Coalition for their work on voter fairness!

Equifax May Owe You a $125 Payment But, Let’s Be Real, You’ll Get Much, Much Less If all 147 million people end up filing a claim, individual payouts would shrivel down to around .22 cents per person. directly from the breach who have documentation to back up their claim, will receive compensation of $25 an hour (for up to 20 hours) of the time they took to resolve the problem. They will be eligible for up to another 10 hours of $25-an-hour payments for the time they took to research or purchase protection services, including freezing their credit, after the fraud happened.  Those who incurred legal expenses or spent money on credit monitoring, notaries and other approved fines as a result of the hack, are eligible for up to $20,000 per person in reimbursements. They will also be required to show proof that their claims are valid.  The deadline to file all claims is Jan. 22, 2020. For people who have already requested a $125 payment and would now like to opt for free credit monitoring instead, look out for an email from Equifax. The company will allow you to change your choice.  Some consumer advocates and legislators around the country say the settlement didn’t go far enough. 

“Equifax’s data breach put over 100 million Americans at risk by exposing their Social Security numbers and other personal information,” said Rep. Frank Pallone (D-New Jersey), chair of the House Energy and Commerce committee, in a press release. “This settlement does not come close to making consumers whole and, once again, shows the limitations on the FTC’s ability to seek strong penalties and effective redress for consumers.” News of data breaches of financial institutions and credit monitoring agencies is becoming an increasingly common occurrence.  Paige Thompson, a Seattle-based hacker, was arrested by the FBI last Monday after she bragged on social media about hacking Capital One and leaking 100 million consumers’ data.  Thompson, who previously worked for Amazon Web Services, bragged about her hacking exploits on Twitter under the username “Erratic.” 

Project Next Step A Free 1 Day Conference at Bakersfield College By Manny Otiko California Black Media On June 22, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced the outcome of a settlement with Equifax, one of the three major credit monitoring firms in the United States. The settlement requires Equifax to pay somewhere between $500 and $700 million in restitution for a 2017 data breach that affected about 147 million people across the United States, according to Jacqueline Connor, a privacy attorney with the FTC. The amount of the settlement is the highest in U.S. history for a data breach and the number of people impacted represents almost half the United States’ population.  That’s nearly every adult in the country who has credit. In California alone, Hackers were able to access and expose the personal information of about 15 million people.   “Our credit status impacts nearly every aspect of our lives - from purchasing a home or a car to finding a job,” said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. “The same  Americans who  had  to immediately  protect themselves from fraudsters or identify  thieves  will have to be vigilant for the rest of their lives.  We  encourage every eligible person to apply for the relief they are entitled to as part of our settlement.” About $300 million of the settlement amount will go to making payments to Americans affected by the breach. Equifax will pay another $275 million in fines to close the investigation by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and to end legal action by states who filed lawsuits against the company. The hackers, who have not yet been identified, penetrated Equifax’s data files and were able to steal social security numbers, credit card numbers, addresses and other personal data. The breach affected all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. 

To compensate victims, Equifax has set up a website (EquifaxBreachSettlement.com) where you can first check to see if  you were affected by the breach. Then, you can apply for a check payment of “up to” $125, or you can choose free credit monitoring with all three major credit bureaus for up to four years, a value of a little over $950. When that period is over, you can choose to opt in for free credit monitoring by Equifax for another six years. Because “millions of people” affected have filed claims for the $125 payment option since the settlement announcement, the FTC, which is responsible for consumer protection across the country, says applying for a cash payment is not the best way to go. So, as an alternative, Equifax is primarily now offering free credit monitoring to its customers affected by the data breach. If you’re already signed up for a free credit monitoring service and intend to keep it for the next six months, then you can apply for the $125 payment. “The pot of money that pays for that part of the settlement is $31 million,” the FTC said in a statement. “A large number of claims for cash instead of credit monitoring means only one thing: Each person who takes the money option will wind up only getting a small amount of money. Nowhere near the $125 they could have gotten if there hadn’t been such an enormous number of claims filed.” For Equifax to have paid out the full $125 to each person affected, a number of no more than 248,000 people would have needed to apply. If all 147 million  people end up filing a claim, individual payouts would shrivel down to around .22 cents per person. The cost for Equifax’s   credit monitoring service is $19.99 a month, according to the company’s website. If every victim of the breach signs up, it could cost Equifax up to $2 billion to cover the costs. Victims of identity theft or other fraud resulting

My platform is to focus on helping individuals who want to extend their education no matter the circumstances of their financial status. The first focus would be for individuals who come from a first-generation background where their parents/guardians have never been exposed to a higher education other than receiving a high school diploma or GED. My second focus would be for low-income individuals who come from a tough financial background where furthering their education would be difficult. Everyone should have the ability to be able to be achieve their future outcome by wanting to achieve a higher degree of education. Under any circumstances, individuals should not let problems get in the way of them wanting to pursue their dreams.
