The stay is temporary and will last until the court considers a final decision. On Monday, the former president asked the Supreme Court to block the House Ways and Means Committee from accessing his tax returns after it requested six years' worth of Trump's returns as part of an investigation into IRS audit practices of presidents and vice presidents, reports ABC News. Trump accused the committee of seeking his taxes under dubious circumstances, with a petition to the Supreme Court reading "The Committee's purpose in requesting President Trump's tax returns has nothing to do with funding or staffing issues at the IRS and everything to do with releasing the President's tax information to the public." In August, a federal appeals court ruled that the committee would be handed the tax returns, having first sought the returns in 2019. NBC reports that Trump "recently failed to block the request on Thursday when the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals shot down his request to reconsider a unanimous opinion from one of its three-judge panels approving the committee's access to the documents." Trump says that the panel's attempts to get their hands on his returns are purely political. https://hotair.com/john-s-2/2022/11/01/voter-registration-has-been-a-disaster-democrats-have-lost-330000-voters-in-florida-n507245 'Voter registration has been a disaster': Democrats have lost 330,000 voters in Florida Democrats are not poised to do well in Florida next week. In fact, it looks like they may not do well in the state for some time. Since the 2020 election, Dems have lost more than 330,000 registered voters in the state while GOP registrations have surged. The Florida Division of Elections released its voter registration report for the November election, known as book closing, earlier this month. Taken with the reports from the general elections in 2020 and 2018, Republicans and no-party-affiliate voters show a steady increase in voter registration. But from 2020 to 2022, Democrats lost 331,810 voters… News 6 political analyst and UCF professor Dr. Jim Clark says the problem can be laid at the feet of the Florida Democratic Party. The result of this large shift in registrations is that the GOP now has a registration advantage in the state for the first time. As of last month, there were 5.3 million registered Republicans and just under 5 million Democrats in Florida, marking the first time in state history that the GOP will carry a voter advantage on Election Day. As bad as that news is, what’s even worse is who Democrats are losing. Republicans have picked up where Trump left off. More than half of their gains in registered voters can be attributed to the 58,000 new Hispanic voters who checked “Republican” on their forms. Democrats, though, are bleeding support from these communities. The party saw a net loss of more than 46,000 Hispanic voters. The reversal is made more stunning because Democrats entered the election cycle firmly aware of the trend and set out to address it, promising they would have dedicated staff and outreach focused on the disparate Hispanic communities that are scattered across the state… It is also worth noting that Republicans saw a slight but sizable uptick of Black registered voters in the past two years while Democrats lost more than 71,000, a quarter of which came from Miami-Dade. The result of all of this is that Republicans are in a position to win in Miami-Dade County for the first time in 20 years. The party has picked up 11,000 new voters in the county since 2020 while Democrats have lost nearly 58,000 voters over the same time span. On top of the registration advantage, the GOP also has a big money advantage. CNN notes that in 2020 Michael Bloomberg committed $100 million to help Biden win Florida. This year there are no outside benefactors coming to rescue the Democrats. Meanwhile, Gov. DeSantis has raised nearly $200 million. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R) political operation reported raising $177.4 million through Sept. 9, breaking the gubernatorial fundraising record without adjusting for inflation, a new OpenSecrets analysis of state campaign finance filings found. His reelection campaign has raised over $31.4 million since January 2021, and Friends of Ron DeSantis, his state-level PAC that is not subject to contribution limits, raked in $146 million since January 2019. The bottom line is that even the Miami Herald doesn’t see much hope for Democrats this year. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/republicans%20predicted-huge-house-win-forecast Majority rules: Republicans predicted to have huge House win in new forecast The Republican Party is set to experience a big win in the House of Representatives come election night, gaining a double-digit edge in the lower chamber of Congress. The GOP needs to have a net gain of at least five seats in the House if it wishes to take the majority, but predictions released on Tuesday indicate that the party may have a 19-seat majority after election night, bringing its total to 236 seats. This estimate is based on if Republican candidates win half of the toss-up races that are in a dead heat, according to Fox News. The majority by the GOP could be bigger or smaller, depending on voter outcome for the party. In a best-case scenario for Republicans, the party would leave election night with 249 seats, while a best-case scenario for the Democratic Party would be for Republicans to have only 223 seats after the election, according to the outlet. The Republican Party's lead in the 2022 midterm House elections can possibly be attributed to its focus on inflation and crime, while Democrats have focused on abortion rights following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade earlier this year. An ABC/Ipsos poll conducted from Oct. 28-29 found that 26% of those surveyed ranked the economy as the most important issue, while 23% reported inflation was the most important. The poll surveyed 729 adults and had a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points. While Republicans are expected to take control of the House, the Senate remains up in the air, as the party only won in 50 of the 100 simulated outcomes of the midterm elections for the Senate, according to FiveThirtyEight. The GOP needs to have a net gain of at least one senator if it wishes to take control of the upper chamber of Congress.

The Army’s ambitious climate strategy, which it estimates will cost upwards of $6.8 billion over five years, follows three lines of efforts: installations, acquisition and logistics and training. According to the strategy’s implementation plan, released Oct. 5, $5.2 billion of that will go to the installation line of effort, wherein the service wants to field fully electric non-tactical vehicles and reduce greenhouse gasses. The Army also wants to operationalize 55 microgrids on its installations (20 microgrids by fiscal 2024, 15 more by FY26 and then 20 more in FY27) with a total cost of $1.6 billion. (The training portion is expected to cost far less.) The service is currently working on implementing the first set of those tactical microgrids, which will allow the service to “interconnect” power equipment in an “interoperable and smart way,” Marnie Bailey, power division chief at the Army’s C5ISR Center, told Breaking Defense in an interview this week. She added that the development of the tactical microgrid standard (TMS) has underpinned a lot of the research the Army has been doing in that area. TMS is an interoperability standard that allows devices to plug and play together, and that’s what the Army wants to do with its power systems, Mike Gonzalez, expeditionary power and environmental controls branch chief at the C5ISR Center, added. Over the next year, the Army wants to explore how to do active load management (things that consume power, like electronics) through the use of the TMS, which can monitor the loads and see how much power installations or bases are consuming on a regular basis, whether the facilities are stateside or in far-flung regions. According to the Army’s climate plan, the service plans to field an all-electric light-duty-non-tactical vehicle fleet by 2027 and is aiming for an all-electric non-tactical fleet overall by 2035. The Army wants to reap the benefits of the technologies and, at the same time, make sure the transition to these new concepts are seamless for soldiers. As part of that, the service is engaging in “soldier touchpoints” to get feedback on what is and isn’t working. Those soldier touchpoints are key to making sure the Army doesn’t spend years on stuff that’s not performing in real situations, Gonzalez said. As to how the Army sees in the opportunities space over the next fiscal years coming up, both Bailey and Gonzalez summed it up in three words: intentionality, flexibility and maximizing options. It also opens up opportunities for incorporating things like artificial intelligence in the future for things like controls, Bailey added, but the focus right now remains on implementing the interoperability standards into equipment. https://dailycaller.com/2022/11/01/fed-interest-to-pass-defense-budget/ The Government Is Set To Spend More On Debt Payments Than The Entire Defense Budget Interest on federal debt is set to skyrocket, potentially surpassing defense spending by as early as 2025, CNN reported Tuesday. The federal government made $475 billion in net interest payments in the fiscal year 2022 — which ended in September — up from $352 in fiscal year 2021, according to the Treasury Department. The number exceeds the $406 billion spent on transportation and veterans’ benefits, and is on track to eclipse the roughly $750 billion spent on defense this year between 2025 to 2026, according to CNN, citing financial analytics firm Moody’s Analytics. (‘Reckless’: Obama Economist Tears Apart Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness) “Regardless of who wins the midterms or in 2024, there are really difficult decisions that will have to be made,” Dan White, an economist at Moody’s Analytics, told CNN. “This is really going to handcuff them.” The Federal Reserve has historically kept interest rates low in a bid to encourage economic growth and the purchase of U.S. debt by foreign investors, CNN reported. This contributed to aggressive borrowing campaigns by both the Trump and Biden administrations, which boosted the nation’s debt past $31 trillion for the first time this year, that have “fast-forwarded us almost an entire generation” in terms of debt, White said. With inflation still above 8%, far above the Federal Reserve’s goal of 2%, it is unlikely that the Fed will slow its pace of interest rate hikes this week in a bid to put downward pressure on the economy and slow inflation, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. As interest rate hikes push economic activity down and the cost of interest up, the U.S. might soon be in a position where it struggles to make its interest payments, White told CNN. A recession, which economists consider increasingly likely, would make it even more difficult to make interest rate payments, since governments typically spend more on social programs during recessions, White told CNN.

The stay is temporary and will last until the court considers a final decision. On Monday, the former president asked the Supreme Court to block the House Ways and Means Committee from accessing his tax returns after it requested six years' worth of Trump's returns as part of an investigation into IRS audit practices of presidents and vice presidents, reports ABC News. Trump accused the committee of seeking his taxes under dubious circumstances, with a petition to the Supreme Court reading "The Committee's purpose in requesting President Trump's tax returns has nothing to do with funding or staffing issues at the IRS and everything to do with releasing the President's tax information to the public." In August, a federal appeals court ruled that the committee would be handed the tax returns, having first sought the returns in 2019. NBC reports that Trump "recently failed to block the request on Thursday when the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals shot down his request to reconsider a unanimous opinion from one of its three-judge panels approving the committee's access to the documents." Trump says that the panel's attempts to get their hands on his returns are purely political. https://hotair.com/john-s-2/2022/11/01/voter-registration-has-been-a-disaster-democrats-have-lost-330000-voters-in-florida-n507245 'Voter registration has been a disaster': Democrats have lost 330,000 voters in Florida Democrats are not poised to do well in Florida next week. In fact, it looks like they may not do well in the state for some time. Since the 2020 election, Dems have lost more than 330,000 registered voters in the state while GOP registrations have surged. The Florida Division of Elections released its voter registration report for the November election, known as book closing, earlier this month. Taken with the reports from the general elections in 2020 and 2018, Republicans and no-party-affiliate voters show a steady increase in voter registration. But from 2020 to 2022, Democrats lost 331,810 voters… News 6 political analyst and UCF professor Dr. Jim Clark says the problem can be laid at the feet of the Florida Democratic Party. The result of this large shift in registrations is that the GOP now has a registration advantage in the state for the first time. As of last month, there were 5.3 million registered Republicans and just under 5 million Democrats in Florida, marking the first time in state history that the GOP will carry a voter advantage on Election Day. As bad as that news is, what’s even worse is who Democrats are losing. Republicans have picked up where Trump left off. More than half of their gains in registered voters can be attributed to the 58,000 new Hispanic voters who checked “Republican” on their forms. Democrats, though, are bleeding support from these communities. The party saw a net loss of more than 46,000 Hispanic voters. The reversal is made more stunning because Democrats entered the election cycle firmly aware of the trend and set out to address it, promising they would have dedicated staff and outreach focused on the disparate Hispanic communities that are scattered across the state… It is also worth noting that Republicans saw a slight but sizable uptick of Black registered voters in the past two years while Democrats lost more than 71,000, a quarter of which came from Miami-Dade. The result of all of this is that Republicans are in a position to win in Miami-Dade County for the first time in 20 years. The party has picked up 11,000 new voters in the county since 2020 while Democrats have lost nearly 58,000 voters over the same time span. On top of the registration advantage, the GOP also has a big money advantage. CNN notes that in 2020 Michael Bloomberg committed $100 million to help Biden win Florida. This year there are no outside benefactors coming to rescue the Democrats. Meanwhile, Gov. DeSantis has raised nearly $200 million. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R) political operation reported raising $177.4 million through Sept. 9, breaking the gubernatorial fundraising record without adjusting for inflation, a new OpenSecrets analysis of state campaign finance filings found. His reelection campaign has raised over $31.4 million since January 2021, and Friends of Ron DeSantis, his state-level PAC that is not subject to contribution limits, raked in $146 million since January 2019. The bottom line is that even the Miami Herald doesn’t see much hope for Democrats this year. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/republicans%20predicted-huge-house-win-forecast Majority rules: Republicans predicted to have huge House win in new forecast The Republican Party is set to experience a big win in the House of Representatives come election night, gaining a double-digit edge in the lower chamber of Congress. The GOP needs to have a net gain of at least five seats in the House if it wishes to take the majority, but predictions released on Tuesday indicate that the party may have a 19-seat majority after election night, bringing its total to 236 seats. This estimate is based on if Republican candidates win half of the toss-up races that are in a dead heat, according to Fox News. The majority by the GOP could be bigger or smaller, depending on voter outcome for the party. In a best-case scenario for Republicans, the party would leave election night with 249 seats, while a best-case scenario for the Democratic Party would be for Republicans to have only 223 seats after the election, according to the outlet. The Republican Party's lead in the 2022 midterm House elections can possibly be attributed to its focus on inflation and crime, while Democrats have focused on abortion rights following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade earlier this year. An ABC/Ipsos poll conducted from Oct. 28-29 found that 26% of those surveyed ranked the economy as the most important issue, while 23% reported inflation was the most important. The poll surveyed 729 adults and had a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points. While Republicans are expected to take control of the House, the Senate remains up in the air, as the party only won in 50 of the 100 simulated outcomes of the midterm elections for the Senate, according to FiveThirtyEight. The GOP needs to have a net gain of at least one senator if it wishes to take control of the upper chamber of Congress.

The Army’s ambitious climate strategy, which it estimates will cost upwards of $6.8 billion over five years, follows three lines of efforts: installations, acquisition and logistics and training. According to the strategy’s implementation plan, released Oct. 5, $5.2 billion of that will go to the installation line of effort, wherein the service wants to field fully electric non-tactical vehicles and reduce greenhouse gasses. The Army also wants to operationalize 55 microgrids on its installations (20 microgrids by fiscal 2024, 15 more by FY26 and then 20 more in FY27) with a total cost of $1.6 billion. (The training portion is expected to cost far less.) The service is currently working on implementing the first set of those tactical microgrids, which will allow the service to “interconnect” power equipment in an “interoperable and smart way,” Marnie Bailey, power division chief at the Army’s C5ISR Center, told Breaking Defense in an interview this week. She added that the development of the tactical microgrid standard (TMS) has underpinned a lot of the research the Army has been doing in that area. TMS is an interoperability standard that allows devices to plug and play together, and that’s what the Army wants to do with its power systems, Mike Gonzalez, expeditionary power and environmental controls branch chief at the C5ISR Center, added. Over the next year, the Army wants to explore how to do active load management (things that consume power, like electronics) through the use of the TMS, which can monitor the loads and see how much power installations or bases are consuming on a regular basis, whether the facilities are stateside or in far-flung regions. According to the Army’s climate plan, the service plans to field an all-electric light-duty-non-tactical vehicle fleet by 2027 and is aiming for an all-electric non-tactical fleet overall by 2035. The Army wants to reap the benefits of the technologies and, at the same time, make sure the transition to these new concepts are seamless for soldiers. As part of that, the service is engaging in “soldier touchpoints” to get feedback on what is and isn’t working. Those soldier touchpoints are key to making sure the Army doesn’t spend years on stuff that’s not performing in real situations, Gonzalez said. As to how the Army sees in the opportunities space over the next fiscal years coming up, both Bailey and Gonzalez summed it up in three words: intentionality, flexibility and maximizing options. It also opens up opportunities for incorporating things like artificial intelligence in the future for things like controls, Bailey added, but the focus right now remains on implementing the interoperability standards into equipment. https://dailycaller.com/2022/11/01/fed-interest-to-pass-defense-budget/ The Government Is Set To Spend More On Debt Payments Than The Entire Defense Budget Interest on federal debt is set to skyrocket, potentially surpassing defense spending by as early as 2025, CNN reported Tuesday. The federal government made $475 billion in net interest payments in the fiscal year 2022 — which ended in September — up from $352 in fiscal year 2021, according to the Treasury Department. The number exceeds the $406 billion spent on transportation and veterans’ benefits, and is on track to eclipse the roughly $750 billion spent on defense this year between 2025 to 2026, according to CNN, citing financial analytics firm Moody’s Analytics. (‘Reckless’: Obama Economist Tears Apart Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness) “Regardless of who wins the midterms or in 2024, there are really difficult decisions that will have to be made,” Dan White, an economist at Moody’s Analytics, told CNN. “This is really going to handcuff them.” The Federal Reserve has historically kept interest rates low in a bid to encourage economic growth and the purchase of U.S. debt by foreign investors, CNN reported. This contributed to aggressive borrowing campaigns by both the Trump and Biden administrations, which boosted the nation’s debt past $31 trillion for the first time this year, that have “fast-forwarded us almost an entire generation” in terms of debt, White said. With inflation still above 8%, far above the Federal Reserve’s goal of 2%, it is unlikely that the Fed will slow its pace of interest rate hikes this week in a bid to put downward pressure on the economy and slow inflation, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. As interest rate hikes push economic activity down and the cost of interest up, the U.S. might soon be in a position where it struggles to make its interest payments, White told CNN. A recession, which economists consider increasingly likely, would make it even more difficult to make interest rate payments, since governments typically spend more on social programs during recessions, White told CNN.

Busse is an environmental advocate who served in many leadership roles for conservation organizations, including as an advisor for the United States Senate Sportsmen's Caucus and the Biden Presidential Campaign. He remains a proud outdoorsman, gun owner, father, and resident of Montana. About the book.... A long-time former executive at one of the country's top gun manufacturers reveals how his industry radicalized a large swathe of America, and explains how it must change before we can reduce gun violence and heal as a nation. Ryan Busse has traveled a long, circuitous path along the American gun journey. As an avid hunter, outdoorsman, and conservationist–all things that the firearms industry was built on–he rose to the highest ranks of the rapidly growing, multibillion-dollar firearms industry. But replacing self-imposed decency with rampant fear-mongering, racism, hardline conservative politics, massive profits from semi-automatic weapons sales, and McCarthyesque policing have driven Busse to do something few other gun executives have done: he's ending his 30-year career in the industry to tell its secrets. He watched the industry change from its smaller, less corporate and far-less-powerful form to the partisan, power-hungry entity it is today. He thought he could go up against the power of the industry from within, and over the years had made small inroads toward sensible gun ownership and use. But that's simply not possible anymore. This book is an insider's call-out, a voice-driven tale of personal transformation, and a fast ride through wild times and colorful characters that populate a much-speculated-about, but little-known industry. It's also a story of how authoritarianism spreads in the guise of freedom, how voicing one's conscience becomes an act of treason in a culture that demands sameness and loyalty. Eric J.

Around 11 p.m. on November 4, 2015, William Tisdale entered an Apro convenience store in Parkland, Washington, and was immediately told by the clerk to call 911. Not realizing that there was a robber inside the store who was threatening to kill the clerk and demanding money from the register, William stepped outside to call 911 only to be violently beaten by the baseball bat-wielding thief as he stole William's car. Eric Fong used enhanced animation to show jurors the severity of William's numerous injuries, including multiple skull fractures, traumatic brain injury, and retinal damage, as they occurred in real-time via the video footage of the attack. In spite of the defense's attempts to minimize William's injuries and to blame him for not remembering to take his medications due to a TBI, the jury responded to Eric Fong's re-telling of William's story and his appeal for empathy and compassion for his client. In June 2021, a Pierce County, Washington jury — limited by COVID-19 precautions and virtual trial proceedings — found Apro was 90% at fault and William was 10% at fault in this groundbreaking premises liability case. The jury awarded William $91 million in total damages, which is the largest compensatory damages verdict for an individual plaintiff in Washington state.  View/Download Trial Documents   Guest Bio: Eric Fong Imaginative and yearning to explore with measured recklessness, Eric Fong lives for the adrenalin only a courtroom provides.  With over 100 civil and criminal jury trials under his belt, he is recognized as an innovator of creative trial work in both fields of law.     Eric protected low-income housing residents of WA State against oppressive crime control measures, creating the constitutional right to intimate association.

Last month at a judicial conference in Colorado Springs, two judges from the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals interviewed Chief Justice John Roberts on all things SCOTUS, in which he decried attacks on the court's legitimacy following the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health ruling. Roberts said "If the court doesn't retain its legitimate function of interpreting the constitution, I'm not sure who would take up that mantle. You don't want the political branches telling you what the law is, and you don't want public opinion to be the guide about what the appropriate decision is…” In a later response to Roberts comments, Justice Elena Kagan declared “Judges create legitimacy problems for themselves when they don't act like courts” and “when they instead stray into places that look like politics.” So does the Supreme Court of the United States have a legitimacy problem? In this episode, host Craig Williams joins guest Douglas Keith, counsel in the Brennan Center's Democracy Program, as they spotlight the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Craig and Doug take a look at the public's reaction to recent SCOTUS decisions, the justices reaction to a legitimacy problem in the High Court, and what the new term will bring.

Freeda Cathcart who is the Mothers Out Front Team Coordinator. We talk all about the Manchin Bill which is proposed by Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chair Joe Manchin. It's a bill with an outline of tax, climate, energy, and healthcare measures that speeds up fossil fuel and clean energy projects. In the episode we will focus on its effects on the Mountain Valley Pipeline, MVP. Manchin's bill includes a mandate for agencies to approve the contentious Mountain Valley natural gas pipeline project. Many Virginia communities have revolted against the venture. The pipeline, proposed will run through West Virginia, Virginia and a sliver of North Carolina, has had multiple permits repeatedly struck down since it was initially approved in 2017. It is now expected to cost more than $6 billion to complete, more than double the original cost estimate. The Manchin bill would move the legal venue for challenges to Mountain Valley from the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond to the U.S. Circuit Court for the District of Columbia Circuit. The bill text also includes a provision imposing a two-year deadline on permitting reviews for major projects under NEPA, and one year for projects with less impact. With Freeda we talk about the work she does, the bill, the effects it has on the MVP, how the MVP effects communities and energy permitting provisions.

(Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Nigerian Muslim herdsmen target Christians for murder Suspected Muslim herdsmen killed two Christians in Plateau state, Nigeria on September 25. This came a day after Islamic State terrorists killed two Christians in northern Nigeria's Kano state. A week before that, suspected ISIS militants bombed a Christian-owned business in northeast Nigeria, injuring three Christians. Dalyop Solomon Mwantiri, director of the Emancipation Centre for Crisis Victims in Nigeria, told Morning Star News, “This is an all-encompassing strategy of wiping the entire Christian population from our ancestral land and the face of the Earth. So far, more than 600 farmlands in Christian communities . . . with crops worth over [$460,000] have been destroyed by the herdsmen in the past five months.” German population grew by 843,000 people, mostly Ukrainian refugees The German Federal Statistical Office reports its population grew by a record 843,000 people this year. Most of the influx came from 750,000 Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war between Russia and Ukraine. Women make up most of the refugees. Since Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Evangelicals across Europe have welcomed Ukrainian refugees. Texas judge allowed to open court with prayer Last Thursday, the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled a Texas county judge can continue to open his court proceedings with prayer. The Freedom from Religion Foundation brought the case against Montgomery County Justice of the Peace Wayne Mack in 2019. You can thank Justice Mack by calling (936) 539-7801. In response to the ruling, Mack said, “I am eternally grateful to the judges on the 5th Circuit who upheld this historical practice. I look forward to continuing to serve the people of Montgomery County.” Colossians 4:2 says, “Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.” 40 Days for Life started in 600 cities 40 Days for Life kicked off last Wednesday in over 600 cities worldwide. Five days into the campaign, at least 20 mothers have chosen life in response to the pro-life vigils outside abortion mills. Over the past three months, 10 abortion mills have shut down in cities where 40 Days for Life vigils have been held. On Monday, a mother seeking an abortion in Tallahassee, Florida encountered a vigil. She told the local leader, “Thank you for your sign. It helped me today. I came here for an abortion today, but I decided not to have one.” Proverbs 24:11 says, “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.” Telemundo poll: Hispanic voters prefer Democrats A new NBC/Telemundo poll found Hispanic voters prefer a Democrat-controlled Congress over a Republican-controlled one by 54% to 33%.  That's a margin of 21 points. Ten years ago, that margin was over 40 points when Hispanic preferred a Democrat Congress by 65% to 23%. The Democrat Party has been losing support from working class minorities as its support is shifting to mostly college-educated whites. Twitter stock soared Musk wanted to buy Twitter shares soared on Tuesday after billionaire Elon Musk said he wanted to proceed with a $44 billion acquisition of the social media company. The deal was on the rocks when Musk said he planned to terminate the buyout in July followed by lawsuits from both Musk and Twitter. Musk originally wanted to obtain Twitter in an effort to protect free speech. More college-educated women than men A new Pew Research survey found women now outnumber men in the college-educated labor force in the U.S. Women account for just over 50% of the college-educated workforce. The change occurred in the fourth quarter of 2019 and continues today. The shift comes four decades after women outpaced men in the earning of bachelor's degrees each year. Hurricane Ian killed 102 Floridians And finally, Hurricane Ian is now the deadliest storm to hit Florida since 1935. As of Tuesday, at least 102 people have been reported killed since Ian struck the state last week. Hundreds of thousands of people remain without power, roads are inundated, and the hardest-hit areas resemble a warzone. Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis explained what he's doing to get power back on for everyone. DeSANTIS: “Under my direction and working with the legislature, Florida, we created a disaster relief fund of $500 million that's in the state budget. So, we're planning for things like this. You know, you pray that they don't happen, but you've got to be ready in case they do. So, that $500 million it was what we used to do the ramp up to pre-stage. "It's also where we're taking money from to defray the costs of these additional linemen coming in to get the power back on. You know, in Hurricane Michael, there was like a contest about who's going to get the reimbursement or who's going to be on the hook. And so, some of the efforts were slower. "What I'm saying is, ‘Look, I'll be on the hook for it. That's fine. We'll use our disaster fund to do these reimbursements. We'll work it out somehow.' But we want to surge people here. So, you have 1,000 linemen statewide from the co op Association throughout Florida that came. And then Duke Electric, they're doing 2,500 to 3,500 people surging down after they've completed their efforts in other parts of the state. "So, this is a massive number of people and that's what I want to see. We want to be able to get the power back on.” Fox News reports churches across Southwest Florida are providing a steadying force after the devastation.  CityServe, a Christ-centered non-profit that offers the Gospel, is resourcing churches with emergency food, water, and supplies to help families affected by the storm.

A cannibal, 50 years old, admitted to killing a missing 25-year-old man and consuming his body parts. According to the 35th Circuit Court's online records, Mark Latunski pleaded guilty to open murder, disinterment, and mutilation of a dead body on Thursday, September 22. An attorney for Latunski told the Lansing State Journal that his client had to make a "tough decision to plead guilty." According to the statement,  "The law requires that attorneys must follow the objectives of clients found to be legally competent as it relates to decisions, such as pleading guilty, even if the attorneys believe that it is not in the best interests of the client. We will continue to vigorously advocate for Mr. Latunski at the degree hearing and sentencing." According to MLive.com, It's possible that Latunski's defense team planned to argue insanity in court. The trial of Latunski was set to begin on October 18, according to WJBK-TV. According to MLive.com, the victim, Kevin Bacon, was reported missing on Christmas Day 2019 when he failed to appear for breakfast with his parents. Many of his loved ones in Swartz Creek, Michigan, went looking for him. WJBK states that Bacon's roommate revealed to police that Bacon had met a man through the Grindr dating app. The body of Latunski, 25, was found on December 28, 2019, in his Shiawassee County residence, as reported by MLive.com. He was apparently found hanging from the ceiling by his feet, blood pouring from cuts all over his body. According to MLive.com, Some of Bacon's body had been devoured and he had been stabbed in the back and his throat had been cut. Latunski was held in a mental health facility and had many competence hearings while he was there. According to WJBK, Latunski's lawyer asked for a competence hearing in January of 2020, stating in court, "He believes he's named someone else. He believes he's from a royal family out of Wales, the Thomas clan. And just the nature of the crime itself, you've got to send him for this evaluation." According to MLive.com, he was found competent to face trial in October 2020; however, Latunski's legal team requested another review of his mental health in March 2022. A judge determined his competency in May of 2022. If you like TRUE CRIME TODAY - Be sure to search and subscribe wherever you download podcasts!

A cannibal who admitted to killing a man named Kevin Bacon, hanging him upside down, and eating his body parts has entered a guilty plea. A cannibal, 50 years old, admitted to killing a missing 25-year-old man and consuming his body parts. According to the 35th Circuit Court's online records, Mark Latunski pleaded guilty to open murder, disinterment, and mutilation of a dead body on Thursday, September 22. An attorney for Latunski told the Lansing State Journal that his client had to make a "tough decision to plead guilty." According to the statement,  "The law requires that attorneys must follow the objectives of clients found to be legally competent as it relates to decisions, such as pleading guilty, even if the attorneys believe that it is not in the best interests of the client. We will continue to vigorously advocate for Mr. Latunski at the degree hearing and sentencing." According to MLive.com, It's possible that Latunski's defense team planned to argue insanity in court. The trial of Latunski was set to begin on October 18, according to WJBK-TV. According to MLive.com, the victim, Kevin Bacon, was reported missing on Christmas Day 2019 when he failed to appear for breakfast with his parents. Many of his loved ones in Swartz Creek, Michigan, went looking for him. WJBK states that Bacon's roommate revealed to police that Bacon had met a man through the Grindr dating app. The body of Latunski, 25, was found on December 28, 2019, in his Shiawassee County residence, as reported by MLive.com. He was apparently found hanging from the ceiling by his feet, blood pouring from cuts all over his body. According to MLive.com, Some of Bacon's body had been devoured and he had been stabbed in the back and his throat had been cut. Latunski was held in a mental health facility and had many competence hearings while he was there. According to WJBK, Latunski's lawyer asked for a competence hearing in January of 2020, stating in court, "He believes he's named someone else. He believes he's from a royal family out of Wales, the Thomas clan. And just the nature of the crime itself, you've got to send him for this evaluation." According to MLive.com, he was found competent to face trial in October 2020; however, Latunski's legal team requested another review of his mental health in March 2022. A judge determined his competency in May of 2022. 2 Two Texas authorities say a man left his injured infant in a shed and fled in a stolen truck. Authorities said a 43-year-old man stole a truck and left his 9-month-old daughter, who was injured, in a shed. Katherine McClain reportedly phoned police at 6 a.m. on Saturday, September 24 after hearing a loud truck outside her house, as reported by KPRC-TV. Someone stole their neighbor's truck, according to her daughter, who peeked out the window and watched it happen. McClain's husband reportedly viewed surveillance footage of the property and saw a man in his underwear strolling next door, getting into the truck, and driving away. The man allegedly also attempted to break into their yard-parked cars. It was alleged that the footage was timestamped at around 3 a.m. Officers from the Livingston Police Department reportedly looked at the camera footage, took fingerprints from the cars, and discovered blood in several of them. Clifford Guynes was spotted driving the stolen car by police, according to KPRC. After around three hours, McClain and her family heard their dogs barking at the shed and discovered the 9-month-old daughter who had been left inside. McClain told KPRC it was a "terrible event." There are reports that the toddler was sent to Texas Children's Hospital with a shattered femur. The child's status is unclear at this time, but KHOU-TV reports that she is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery. According to the Polk County Jail records, Guynes was arrested and jailed on charges of harm to a child and abandoning/endangering a kid. He remains imprisoned on $200,000 bond. On September 16th, Guynes was reportedly detained for violating his parole, as reported by KPRC. 3 84-year-old man guilty of killing K.C. attorney who won multimillion-dollar case against him After losing a case against the victim's client, an 84-year-old man was found guilty of fatally shooting the victim's attorney in front of the victim's home. The Jackson County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement that David Jungerman was found guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action on Thursday, September 22. Pickert was found dead the previous day. Officers from the Kansas City Police Department arrived at a residence on October 25, 2017, around 8:07 am, to find Pickert dead in the driveway. A single bullet of "relative rarity" (.17 caliber) is said to have ended his life. According to KSHB-TV Pickert was gunned killed after returning home from sending his sons to school. A source claims that upon hearing the gunshot, his wife ran out to offer assistance. The white van that Jungerman was driving was reportedly sought by police in Kansas City after the tragic encounter. Officers apparently met with Jungerman not long after the shooting, but he wasn't brought into custody. A man matching Jungerman's description was seen by a witness near the van just before the murder, the witness reportedly told police. According to KSHB's reporting, Jungerman first said he was the only person with access to the white van and that he wasn't behind the wheel on the day Pickert was slain. This is according to a report on WDAF-TV. A second witness came forward a couple of months after the incident to say that Jungerman had boasted to him that he had killed a lawyer and evaded capture. On March 8, 2018, according to the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office, investigators searched Jungerman's vehicle after obtaining a warrant. Reports indicate that shortly before Pickert was shot, Jungerman suspected that Pickert had stolen money from him in connection with a judgment that had been rendered against Pickert. According to WDAF, in 2012, Jungerman shot two homeless individuals he said broke into his store. Pickert defended Jeffrey Harris, who had lost a leg and was named as a plaintiff in the case against Jungerman. Juries ruled with Harris on July 24, 2017, awarding him roughly $6 million in damages that Jungerman was ordered to pay. The jury said Harris should receive $750,000 in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Jungerman will be sentenced Nov. 18.
