State admits HB 1523 doesnít protect all
By Larrison Campbell

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves asked lawyers for the state in court Friday if its controversial "religious freedom law" would protect Mississippians with sincerely held religious beliefs against straight marriage, just as it protects those with sincerely held religious beliefs against gay marriage.

A beat of silence followed.

Paul Barnes, who is defending the attorney general and the registrar of vital records in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of House Bill 1523, cleared his throat. Judge Reeves looked at him.

"I'm trying to parse it out," Barnes said.

Almost a minute of silence followed. The other attorneys for the defense, Douglas Miracle and Tommy Goodwin, checked their notes. Someone coughed. Finally, Barnes leaned into his microphone.

At the platform hearing, Bob Moses as revolutionary as ever, says affirm right to vote.

At the Democratic National Convention Platform Hearing today he said:

To reinforce the intent and purpose of the Reconstruction Amendments, and to ensure that all of our citizens, including incarcerated persons, have full political rights, the SNCC Legacy Project and those of us who commit to organizing earned insurgencies of people power, champion, in opposition to Chief Justice Roberts, a people's narrative: that the nation rejected both slavery and its assault on human dignity, and altered its slave-tolerating Constitution to give the federal government power to protect the people's rights.

We ask that the national Democratic Party take a revolutionary stance: confirm the right to vote and make it explicit. Adopt in your platform the following statement.

"The national Democratic Party agrees to work for the following voting rights resolution.

Voting Rights Resolution

Section One - The people's right to representation being necessary to our republican form of government, the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be infringed.

Section Two - The federal branches of government shall protect this right.
"

Thank you.

Russian government hackers penetrated DNC, stole opposition research on Trump

Source: Washington Post

Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach.

The intruders so thoroughly compromised the DNCís system they also were able to read all e-mail and chat traffic, said DNC officials and the security experts.

The intrusion into the DNC was one of several targeting American political organizations. The networks of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were also targeted by Russian spies, as were the computers of some GOP political action committees, U.S. officials said. But details on those cases were not available.

A Russian Embassy spokesman said he had no knowledge of such intrusions.
