    Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently awaiting trial on charges of aiding Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking of minors, is offering to renounce her French and U.K. citizenships in her third bid to be released from prison on bail. In a court filing on Tuesday published by Courthouse News, Maxwell’s attorneys wrote in a Maxwell is a U.S. citizen, and has no desire to leave the country. “Ms. Maxwell will renounce her French and British citizenship to eliminate any opportunity for her to seek refuge in those countries, if the Court so requires,” the filing states. Maxwell’s attorneys also offered to have her and her husband’s assets placed in an account that would be monitored to ensure that their assets would not be used for flight or harboring outside of the court’s jurisdictions. “To deny Ms. Maxwell bail when such extraordinary and restrictive conditions are available would be...
    Ghislaine Maxwell has filed a third application for bail, this time offering to renounce her British and French citizenship so she cannot seek refuge in either country. In a new court filing on Tuesday, the alleged chief recruiter for Jeffrey Epstein said she would 'immediately' give up her citizenship from the UK, the country where she grew up, in exchange for her release. Giving up her citizenship with France, which has no extradition treaty with the US, would be 'expedited', her lawyers said. Maxwell would also put all the money and assets she owns into an account supervised by an asset manager who would sign off on any spending. Maxwell's lawyers said the measures were 'sufficient to address the hypothetical risk of flight and secure Ms. Maxwell's presence at trial.' But they face a high bar against a judge who has twice ruled already that Maxwell should remain behind bars...
    Bruce Castor, an attorney for former President Donald Trump, speaks during the second impeachment trial of Trump in the Senate at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Feb. 12, 2021. Senate Television via AP Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.Donald Trump’s legal team vowed they would not litigate his false claims of voter fraud during the former president’s impeachment trial. But on Friday afternoon Trump lawyer Bruce Castor could not help himself, defending the call where Trump pressured Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger to “find 11,780 votes.” Trump may be gone from office, but his anti-democratic lies could still win. There was nothing improper about Trump’s call, Castor claimed, because Trump was simply inquiring into voting irregularities, including the “inexplicable” drop in mail-in ballots rejected for signature errors in 2020 compared...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Democratic House leaders in Minnesota are calling on several of their Republican colleagues to renounce the violent rhetoric used at the “Storm the Capitol” rally last week in St. Paul, which was held simultaneously with a pro-Trump rally in Washington that ended with an angry mob attacking the U.S. Capitol. “The violence we witnessed in Washington D.C. has no place in our nation, nor does the rhetoric that encouraged it, incited it, and celebrated it — including at an event at our State Capitol,” said Speaker Melissa Hortman in a statement issued Monday. “The Republican members who attended this event must renounce the violent rhetoric used at the rally they attended and renounce the seditious rhetoric and insurrection that occurred in Washington DC. It is reprehensible that an event these members attended called for civil war and casualties.” The message from Hortman and other...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) refused to denounce socialism during a recent press conference, according to Fox News. The apparent refusal comes amid Pelosi's bid for another term as speaker of the House. What are the details? The outlet reported that during a Friday press conference, the network requested comment from Pelosi "several times," including "multiple phone calls to Pelosi's office," regarding inquiries as to whether the long-serving Democrat opposes socialism and whether she would permit any self-identifying socialists elected in the Democratic caucus to hold leadership positions in the House. "During a press conference on Friday, Pelosi acknowledged that there was a 'difference of opinion' among members of her caucus as a rift between moderates and progressives appears to have expanded following the 2020 election," the outlet wrote, pointing out that in 2019, Pelosi had no problem insisting that socialism was "not the...
    Savannah Rychcik November 4, 2020 0 Comments Filmmaker Michael Moore is dishing out harsh criticism to American voters who chose to support President Donald Trump. “As to why our fellow Americans did not repudiate and renounce Trump yesterday in an overwhelming and massive way — why nearly 70 million Americans still embrace a bigot and a psychopath — well, we must have that discussion soon as to who we REALLY are.

The Coyotes came under scrutiny for allegedly failing to perform due diligence when it came to picking Miller. The team announced Thursday it would no longer hold Miller’s draft rights. NHL DRAFT PICK MITCHELL MILLER UNDER FIRE FOR BULLYING BLACK, DISABLED CLASSMATE “We have decided to renounce the rights to Mitchell Miller, effective immediately,” Coyotes President and CEO Xavier Gutierrez said in a news release. “Prior to selecting Mitchell in the NHL Draft, we were aware that a bullying incident took place in 2016.

    On Monday, The Arizona Republic published a sickening article detailing the Coyotes’ 2020 fourth-round draft pick Mitchell Miller’s bullying of a Black classmate with developmental disabilities four years ago. The abuse, which reportedly lasted years, involved racial slurs, physical contact and getting the victim to lick a push-pop that had been rubbed inside a urinal. Thursday, the Coyotes organization announced that it had renounced the rights to Miller, who was the club’s first selection of the draft. “We have decided to renounce the rights to Mitchell Miller, effective immediately,” Coyotes president and CEO Xavier Gutierrez said in the team’s news release. “Prior to selecting Mitchell in the NHL Draft, we were aware that a bullying incident took place in 2016. “We do not condone this type of behavior but embraced this as a teachable moment to work with Mitchell to make him accountable for his actions and provide him with an opportunity to be a leader on anti-bullying...
    Thunberg on living through crises in a post-truth society Kendrick Lamar Makes 2020 Rap Debut on Busta Rhymes New Song Look Over Your Shoulder — Listen! Arizona Coyotes renounce rights to draft pick Mitch Miller, a highly unusual move There’s a fair bit of history across sports of draft prospects’ past actions leading to their stock falling and/or leading to criticism for the team that drafts them, but it’s extremely rare to see a team actually change course after the fact and part ways with someone they drafted. That’s what’s now happened with the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes and Mitch Miller, though. The Coyotes didn’t have first-, second-, or third-round picks in this year’s draft (which took place Oct. 6-7), so their fourth-round selection (111th overall) was their first of the draft, and they used it on Miller, an 18-year-old freshman at the University of North Dakota. But that led...

Arizona acknowledged it knew about the incident when it selected Miller 111th overall. “We do not condone this type of behavior but embraced this as a teachable moment to work with Mitchell to make him accountable for his actions and provide him with an opportunity to be a leader on anti-bullying and anti-racism efforts,” President and CEO Xavier Gutierrez said. “We have learned more about the entire matter, and more importantly, the impact it has had on Isaiah and the Meyer-Crothers family.

    Prince Harry will have to give up his royal title and just be “Harry” if he decides to become a U.S. citizen, a royal expert told The Express. The Duke of Sussex has been living in the U.S. for the past several months, after he and his wife, Meghan Markle, stepped down from their roles as senior members of Britain’s royal family. However, Queen Elizabeth allowed them to retain their titles and styles, on the condition that they don’t use them when conducting business. And now, royal expert Marlene Koenig is warning Harry that if he decides to become a U.S. citizen, he’ll have to give up his title by default. “He would literally have to, even though there is no law preventing him from still being called Prince Harry, but when you become a US citizen, you have to renounce any titles or allegiance,” she said. Specifically, the Constitution...
    Sen. Josh Hawley said he will ask Democrats to agree to refrain from making any attacks against Judge Amy Coney Barrett based on her religious beliefs during her Supreme Court confirmation hearing.  The GOP lawmaker from Missouri, who is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Axios that he wants to hear every member say they won’t go after Barrett for her Catholic faith. "Im going to call it out at every single opportunity,” he said. "Silence is not enough," Hawley continued. "Silence is acquiescence. Theyve already trafficked in these stereotypes and this bigotry. ... So now its not enough to go silent and say: Well, OK, maybe well emphasize something else." Hawley said Democrats already went after Barrett’s faith during her confirmation hearings for her current post as a U.S. Court of Appeals judge. "[W]eve seen a pattern from Democrats over the years — not just with Judge Barrett, but other...
    Meghan Markle would 'seriously consider running for president' if she and Prince Harry ever 'gave up their titles,' a source close to the royal has claimed. The Duchess of Sussex, 39, and Prince Harry, 35, now ensconced in an L.A. mansion, recently recorded a video message for Times 100 urging Americans to vote, hinting they support Democrat Joe Biden.   They made their remarks just weeks before the November 3 elections with Americans in some states already going to the polls.   'One of the reasons she was so keen not to give up her American citizenship was so she had the option to go into politics,' a source close to the couple claimed, speaking to Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl. 'I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles she would seriously consider running for president.'  Meghan Markle (pictured), 39, would 'seriously consider running for President,' a source close to the...
    Mexican actor Diego Luna says he’s “benefited from a racist system,” and is calling on white people to renounce those benefits to help promote racial justice. In an interview the Daily Beast, Luna discussed Pan y Circo, an upcoming Amazon Prime show where esteemed guests are invited to dine and discuss a variety of important issues including the coronavirus, drug trafficking, climate change, and abortion. “From the collection of table discussions, privilege emerges as a pungent through-line exposing our biases and blind spots: the privilege of being male in patriarchal societies, the privilege to cross the border legally, the privilege of being white in a racist country, or the privilege to use drugs recreationally,” reads the outlet’s description of Luna’s series. Episode seven looks at the topics of identity and racism and how indigenous and black cultures are supposedly dismissed in modern society. “I’ve benefited from a racist system my whole life. Not...
    Nearly six thousand Americans renounced their citizenship in the first six months of 2020, a massive increase over the previous six months. The numbers were reported by Bambridge Accountants New York, a firm which specializes in taxes for United Kingdom expatriates and U.S. citizens, which reviewed a government list of Americans who have renounced their citizenship. An IRS rule requires the government to publish these names every three months. In the first six months of 2020, a whopping 5,816 Americans renounced their citizenship, more than twice the number who renounced in all of 2019. The first six months also showed a massive increase over the previous six months – a 1,210% increase from the 444 people who renounced during that time. The second quarter of 2020 saw nearly the same number of Americans renounce their citizenship as the first quarter, when 2,909 renounced, creating a new record. Slightly fewer (2,907)...

    Atit Phetmuangtong / EyeEm Regardless of where you live on this planet, if you're an American, Tax Day is on July 15. Perhaps nobody feels this as keenly as taxpayers who reside in foreign countries. Seven out of 10 U.S. citizens abroad don't think they should be required to file U.S. taxes, according to a survey by Greenback Expat Tax Services. The firm polled more than 4,000 American expatriates from March to June 2020. "It continues to be a thorn in the side for these individuals," said Miranda Pruitt, content strategist for Greenback Expat Tax Services. "It remains something they struggle with, the extra reporting requirements and forms they have to fill out at tax time." Indeed, a fifth of the participants said they were seriously considering giving up their citizenship in the near term — and close to 4 in 10 of these people said this decision was driven...
    United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres called Israel’s U.S.-backed plans to annex parts of the West Bank a “water shed moment” and urged Israel to reconsider undermining the two-state solution and destabilizing the area. “If implemented, annexation would constitute a most serious violation of international law, grievously harm the prospect of a two-State solution and undercut the possibilities of a renewal of negotiations,” Guterres said in a statement Wednesday. Guterres also called on Israel and Palestine to come back to the table to work to find a two-state solution as defined by international law under the pre-1967 borders that Israel seized during the Six-Day War.

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Democratic Party called on its U.S. Senate nominee to drop out of the race Tuesday after he made sexually repugnant comments about a campaign staffer in a group text with her and other staffers. The party said its state executive committee voted unanimously on Monday evening to withdraw all of its resources from Chris Janicek’s campaign. Janicek, the owner of an Omaha cupcake bakery, is challenging Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, who is seeking a second term. Janicek accepted the Democratic nomination a little more than a month ago after winning a seven-candidate primary race, but the odds of winning in November were against him in Republican-dominated Nebraska even before his party withdrew its support.
