On March 25, Pastor Kenneth Glasgow, an activist for felon voting rights and Al Sharpton’s half-brother, was arrested and charged with capital murder.
“Arrested for Capital Murder was Kenneth Glasgow, 52, of W. Powell St., Dothan,” says a Dotham, AL police department release. “A ‘no bond’ has been issued in this case.”
Glagow allegedly shot and killed 23-year-old Breunia Jennings over a dispute regarding a stolen car.
Glasgow is a prominent felon voting rights activist. His non-profit, The Ordinary People Society (TOPS), was founded in 1999 and has helped “hundreds of thousands” of felons gain voting access. In 2008, he even won a lawsuit that allowed him to register felons to vote inside prisons.
“In the last month, I think we registered at least five- to ten-thousand people all over the state,” said Glasgow in November. “I’ve got people all over the state registering people with my TOPS branches in Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Montgomery, Enterprise, Dothan, Abbeville, Geneva, Gordon, Bessemer, we have a lot.”
The thousands of felons Glasgow referenced were registered to vote mere weeks before the December 12 special Alabama Senate election between Republican Judge Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones.
Glasgow’s stated intention was to get felons to vote Democrat. He told Think Progress that formerly incarcerated people “swarming the polls” had the potential to swing the seat to Democrats.
“We have the chance to do the same thing they did in Virginia,” he said. “We can turn it blue. Well not blue, but we can add some color. Make it pink or purple.”
One of the newly-registered voters was Barbara Hughes, a 29-year-old who thought she was precluded from voting for a previous drug conviction.
“Even though I was born in this country, I feel more like a citizen,” she told Think Progress, adding that she was looking forward to casting her first-ever vote for Democrat Doug Jones.
The timing of the new bill was obviously significant – Judge Moore lost the special election by about 20,000 votes. Glasgow has high level connections within the Democrat party, as his half-brother is Al Sharpton, and he was pictured with Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Alabama’s 1901 Constitution banned those guilty of a crime of “moral turpitude” from voting. The law clarifies the definition of “moral turpitude,” which was interpreted differently by each county in Alabama. Glasgow and his group championed the Definition of Moral Turpitude Act, which was signed into law by Gov. Kay Ivey (R) in May. Now, any felon in Alabama not convicted of a murder or sex offense can vote, opening the door to thousands of new voters.
Judging by the results of the December special election, Glasgow’s strategy worked to perfection.
Also noteworthy is the fact that The Ordinary People Society participated in the anti-gun violence “March for Our Lives” the day before Glasgow allegedly shot and killed Jennings.

Pro-Trump Republican Who Defeated Sanford Hit By Oncoming Car On Highway 17
A lawmaker who recently defeated incumbent South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford in a Republican congressional primary earlier this month is recovering from serious injuries after a head-on collision with a vehicle operating in the wrong direction on U.S. Highway 17.
Charleston County Sheriff’s Office reported that Katie Arrington, newly elected South Carolina lawmaker, and a friend identified as Jacqueline Goff of Mandeville, Louisiana, were traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 17 around 9 p.m. Friday night a vehicle headed in the wrong direction struck Arrington’s vehicle head-on. According to Sheriff’s Captain Roger Antonio, the driver of the other vehicle died on the scene.
Katie Arrington, Summerville Republican underwent surgery to remove portions of her colon and her small intestines as well as having sustained a back fracture, and broken ribs. She is recovering in a local Charleston-area hospital said spokesperson for Arrington, Michael Mule. Her friend, Jacqueline Goff was also seriously injured and is recovering today.
Mule said Arrington would need several more surgeries, as well as a stent to repair the partial collapse of the primary artery in her legs which will require her to remain in the hospital for at least two weeks. Mule reported to news outlets that Arrington was alert and talking on Saturday morning.
In a statement released to the press, Mule said “Katie asks for your continued prayers for the deceased and the deceased’s family, as well as prayers for a quick recovery for Katie and her friend.”
A statement was also released on the official Katie Arrington Facebook page asking for prayers and support:
Arrington’s recent win over “Never-Trumper” Sanford made national headlines as well as Arrington securing Trump’s support hours before the primary ballot. Arrington was vocal of her support of Trump throughout her campaign and used Sanford’s criticism as a cornerstone of her campaign.
“I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love,” tweeted Trump ahead of the primary. “She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. VOTE Katie!”
Trump later reportedly mocked Mark Sanford at a meeting with House Republicans: “ I want to congratulate Mark on a great race.”
This morning, the president tweeted sending his thoughts and prayers to the lawmaker as well as her friend and their families.
Clinton Donor Clare Bronfman ‘Expects To Be Indicted’ In Sex Cult Child-Trafficking Case
Hillary Clinton presidential campaign donor Clare Bronfman, heiress to the Seagrams fortune, “expects to be indicted by late July” in the NXIVM sex cult case.
NXIVM leaders Keith Raniere and “Smallville” actress Allison Mack were arrested in Mexico and stand trial for human trafficking, child sex trafficking, and other crimes. Raniere is being held without bail while Mack is in the custody of her parents with an ankle bracelet. Bronfman, who oversaw the group’s experiments on women and children at their secretive “Rainbow Cultural Center,” is expected to be charged.
Charles Hurt reported that in the spring of 2007, “executives and top associates…along with their family members” of NXIVM donated $29,900 to the Hillary Clinton 2008 presidential campaign.
Kirsten Gillibrand has also taken money from the group’s high-profile socialite member Bronfman, and her father actually worked for the cult.
The group’s former publicist and foremost whistleblower Frank Parlato tells Big League Politics that Bronfman is preparing herself for prosecution.
“I worked as the publicist,” Frank Parlato told Big League Politics. “We ran into a major disagreement and we split. At the time I worked for them I thought they were a little peculiar but it wasn’t until the end that I realized they were a downright evil group.”
“There are women on the record who are now adults who have accused Raniere of statutory rape and there are some very suspicious incidents where Mexican girls came under the perimeters of Raniere’s control and left under suspicious circumstances. They came from Chihuahua Mexico. I reported this to the authorities,” Parlato said.
Human Experiments (READ MORE ABOUT THIS HERE)
Parlato described the bizarre human experiments that Raniere and his benefactors the Bronfman sisters oversaw at the Rainbow Cultural Garden, where they separated children from their parents. Dr. Porter is identified as Raniere’s human experiments chief.
“They do the human fright experiments where they subject women to surprise graphic viewings” similar to A Clockwork Orange, Parlato said.
“The most diabolical experiments that he conducts are experiments where babies are subjected to a constant succession of strangers who take care of them instead of their parents, and the strangers teach them foreign languages,” Parlato said.
“The cult members’ children, they are pressured to give up their children to Raniere. They pay $10,000 to Raniere for the privilege of having Raniere teach them how to speak.”
Seven different nannies would spend time with the children each day and speak seven different languages, rendering the children illiterate, confused, and permanently intellectually damaged.
“Adults are shellshocked now having been through this,” Parlato said.
“The children are housed with their parents and then the children either go to a school, Rainbow School, or the nannies who were sex slaves come to the house,” he said. “The courses run for 6 months to 7 years or so, at which point Raniere alleges the young child’s brain is most susceptible to these different languages and cultures. They get them right at 6 months and the program has only been around for (a few years) so there’s only a limited number of parents.”
“Her father Doug Rutnik came to work as a consultant for NXIVM…he was fired, they sued him, and they had to pay him $100,000,” Parlato said, referring Gillibrand’s father.
“Her father’s wife, her stepmother, was also a member of NXIVM…Doug got her into the cult, Gillibrand’s father got Gillibrand’s future stepmother into the cult. Doug left the cult because he was sued. Clare Bronfman after her father was sued donated money to Gillibrand. Gillibrand accepted it.”
“One is inclined to call her a liar,” Parlato says of Gillibrand.
“The Clintons got a lot of money from NXIVM, NXIVM members, one of their main NXIVM members was a guy named Richard Mays, he encouraged Clinton to indict their enemies, to use their political influence in Arkansas to indict enemies of Raniere,” Parlato said….
RIP PEPE: EU Votes ‘Yes’ on Meme Ban
In a devastating blow to those who enjoy internet freedom, a group of leftist government bureaucrats have effectively banned memes from Europe.
“Article 13 (a.k.a. censorship machines) will make platforms responsible for monitoring user behavior to stop copyright infringements, but basically means only huge platforms will have the resources to let users comment or share content,” according to The Next Web. “People opposed to the proposal worry that this could lead to broader censorship, threatening free speech via parody, satire, and even protest videos.”
Since memes are usually made from copyrighted images, the European Union has essentially outlawed them.
The meme magicians responded exactly the way one would expect.
“EU voted to pass [Article 13] and ban memes…it is time – Meme War 3 has begun,” said an anonymous Twitter user.

“EU is voting to ban Memes through censorship machines. #LOL,” said Narek Panossian, attaching two memes to his tweet.

Even Yahoo UK savored some of the absurd, using a caption photo with a popular meme:
EU approves copyright law which could ban memes and ‘destroy the internet’ https://t.co/MWUVXHDP8o

Not all European lawmakers are on board, though.
“[The Copyright Directive is] on the verge of causing irreparable damage to our fundamental rights and freedoms, our economy and competitiveness, our education and research, our innovation and competition, our creativity and our culture,” wrote Julia Reda, a German politician and Member of the European Parliament on her website. According to Reda’s site, “over 80 signatories representing human and digital rights organisations, media freedom organisations, publishers, journalists, libraries, scientific and research institutions, educational institutions including universities, creator representatives, consumers, software developers, start-ups, technology businesses and Internet service providers.”
