Trump: Americans could be tried in Guantánamo | 11 Aug 2016 | A President Donald Trump might push for Americans accused of terrorism to be tried in military tribunal at the U.S. Navy base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, the Republican nominee told the Miami Herald on Thursday. "I would say they could be tried there, that would be fine," Trump said in a brief interview ahead of his speech to home builders in Miami Beach. Under current federal law, it's illegal to try U.S. citizens at military commissions. Changing the law would require an act of Congress.

August 12, 2016 by legitgov

The Millions of Americans Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Barely Mention: The Poor | 11 Aug 2016 | The United States...abides the deepest poverty of any developed nation, but you would not know it by listening to Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party's presidential nominee. Mrs. Clinton, who spoke about her economic plans on Thursday near Detroit, is campaigning as an advocate for middle-class families whose fortunes have flagged. She has said much less about helping the millions of Americans who yearn to reach the middle class. Her Republican rival, Donald J. Trump, spoke in Detroit on his economic proposals three days ago, and while their platforms are markedly different in details and emphasis, the candidates have this in common: Both promise to help Americans find jobs; neither has said much about helping people while they are not working.

Trump Tower is Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's highest-profile property, and where his campaign is headquartered -- next to Central Park in Manhattan.

August 10, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. judge approves deal to weaken Texas voter ID law; Wisconsin remedy suspended | 10 Aug 2016 | A U.S. judge on Wednesday approved a deal reached between Texas and civil rights groups to remedy a voter identification law that was found to be discriminatory and in violation of the U.S. Voting Rights Act by an appeals court last month, lawyers in the case said. Courts in recent weeks have blocked voter ID laws passed by several Republican-led states after civil rights groups argued the measures were discriminatory and prevented poor and minority voters - who typically support Democrats - from casting ballots because they could not obtain authorized ID cards. In a separate voter ID decision on Wednesday concerning measures in Wisconsin, a U.S. appeals court suspended a remedy being worked out to weaken that state's law.

MI5 'mind reading unit' foils potential terrorist attacks | 08 Aug 2016 | Up to seven potential terror attacks across Britain have been uncovered and stopped over the past year by a special MI5 unit which reads the minds of would-be attackers, the agency says.

The BSU's aim is to find out whether those flagged as potential threats are "talkers or walkers" - those who boast or those who are prepared to act, according to The Sunday Times.

Chicago police may have violated policy in fatal shooting - official | 06 Aug 2016 | Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said on Saturday that videos of the police shooting of a black man in the city last month indicate three officers may have violated the department's policies.

North Carolina to seek Supreme Court stay of voter ID law | 06 Aug 2016 | North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) said his state will petition the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene and reinstate a voter identification law that was struck down by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which said the law discriminated against minorities.

McCrory said the appeals court changing election law only months before the 2016 election will cause confusion.
