The FBI is receiving backlash for a tweet it posted on 11th of July 11 that suggests Americans should monitor “family members and peers” for signs of “mobilization to violence” and report “suspicious behaviors” in an effort to prevent extremist activities.

“Family members and peers are often best positioned to witness signs of mobilization to violence. Help prevent homegrown violent extremism. Visit https://go.usa.gov/x6mjf to learn how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the #FBI,” the tweet read. It also contained two photos of an individual highlighted in red operating a computer. 
In the tweet is a link to a government booklet (pdf) codified in 2015 concerning signs that someone might be considering to cause some violence, but the publication mainly relates to Islamist terrorist organizations which includes ISIS and al-Qaeda.

“It is important to consider the totality of circumstances when observing potential indicators, as some factors may increase the risk of extremist violence in a given situation,” the booklet states, adding that some factors may include an individual who has an “inability to cope with changes or perceived failures in relationships, school, or career.”

”A history of violence (e.g., domestic violence or violence toward animals) and unstable mental state; social isolation or inability to join with or relate to others;” and a “possession of, access to, or familiarity with weapons or explosives” should be flagged,” the FBI wrote.

“Certainly, behaviors exist and are noted in this booklet that would be troubling regardless of ideological motivation and may warrant contacting law enforcement. However, this booklet is focused on individuals or groups that are inspired or enabled by foreign terrorist organizations, including but not limited to ISIS, al-Qa’ida, and their affiliates and allies,” the document stated.

A former acting director of national intelligence, Richard Grenell, vehemently opposed the FBI’s stance, saying that the FBI’s tweet “is outrageous” because the agency “has a growing credibility problem and this type of sinister snitching is clearly unhelpful.” Many Republican lawmakers also criticized the tweet, implying the FBI is encouraging Americans’ family members to spy on one another.

“In both Cuba & China, they also ask children to spy on their parents,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tweeted. 

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-Texas) tweeted: “These people protected Hillary, abused NSA surveillance databases against Americans, used known, unreliable DNC-funded propaganda to spy on Trump, perpetuated the Russia hoax, & lied to the FISC repeatedly. And now they tell you that you should spy on your family.”

It’s not certain if the FBI posted the tweet with respect to the Biden administration’s campaign against “domestic violent extremists” or the longstanding intelligence operations opposing Islamist terror groups. And officials at the agency hasn’t responded to a request for comment.

Breaking: ‘Potentially thousands’ of duplicated ballots without serial numbers- Arizona Audit Report

Published

on

 “The state Senate’s audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election results revealed “potentially thousands” of missing serial numbers on ballot copies that had been duplicated from originals that are already damaged.”, state official in Arizona said Thursday. 

Senate Liaison Ken Bennett, in the state Senate hearing on Thursday,  described the process by which election workers duplicate a ballot: “If a ballot gets damaged and has to be sent to duplication, there is a very specific process in the [state] elections procedure manual. That process involves applying matching serial numbers to both original and duplicated ballots.”

“We found, I would have to say, thousands of duplicate ballots where those serial numbers are not on them,” he said. “And so it has created great difficulty to try to match up a duplicated ballot to its duplicate.” 
Bennett posited that many serial numbers on the ballots were applied with a “dot-matrix printer” atop border lines around the ballot, a mixup which “made for some very tedious matching of duplicated ballots and their duplicates.”

“One of the most important things you need to do when you duplicate ballots is reflect the serial number on [the two ballots] so that you can do two main things,” he said. “One, make sure you have one for every one of the other and two, make sure that you can look at the votes reflected on the duplicated ballot to make sure they reflected those correctly from the ballot that was damaged and was duplicated.”

State Senate President Karen Fann asked Bennet during his testimony: “If the corresponding numbers aren’t on there, how would you know whether it was duplicated once or ten times?”

Bennett, responding said,”You wouldn’t.”

The Maricopa audit ongoing is expected to be carried for a few more weeks.

Trump Organization CFO resigns from the trust that controls the company: documents show

Published

on

Allen Weisselberg, Trump Organization executive has resigned from a trust set up to control all of the company’s assets — clearly giving up his place at the top of the company’s formal hierarchy — according to government filings obtained by The Washington Post.

In a document filed with regulators in New Jersey, the Trump Organization said that Weisselberg was no longer a trustee of the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust. The trust took in all his companies and investments when Trump took office in 2017. In effect, Trump’s lawyers said, the trust owned the Trump Organization.
Until this month, the trust had two trustees: Allen Weisselberg, Trump’s longtime chief financial officer, and Donald Trump Jr. Eric Trump, the former president’s adult son, who was the chairman of the trust’s advisory board.
But last week, the company told New Jersey there was now just one trustee.

But his resignation from the trust is the most significant sign yet that Weisselberg is giving up his formal power at a company where he has worked since the 1970s. According to the paper, at least he has left the Trump Organization — now struggling with political backlash, the covid-19 pandemic, and the indictments of two Trump subsidiaries alongside Weisselberg

— with Trump’s two adult sons.
“Effective immediately, I, Allen Weisselberg, resign from each and every office and position that I hold” in the subsidiaries, in a letter dated June 25, Weisselberg wrote. The letter was also delivered to New Jersey authorities, who released it to The Washington Post.
What followed was a two-page list. The list received by The Post was redacted to a large extent so that only a few company names were visible. However, according to other corporate records in the United States and Scotland, The Post has noticed at least 59 Trump entities where Weisselberg has recently resigned from his positions.
