  • Beto O'Rourke's being sued over campaign text messages

    Golocal247.com news

    It looks like the political full-court press ahead of the midterms has gotten on the nerves of some voters deep in the heart of Texas who've filed a suit against Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke over text alerts.  A class-action lawsuit filed by a Collin County, Texas resident claims he's been inundated with "Beto For Texas" texts that violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCP Act,) because he never gave the campaign permission to send him those messages. SEE ALSO: Ted Cruz's latest dig at Beto O'Rourke on Twitter might be his vilest yet The resident claimed he tried to text back or call the the number associated with the texts but, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, "the calls resulted in error messages or disconnected dial tones." That, the lawsuit claims, proves the campaign is using automated messaging, which the TCP Act forbids.  Hey @BetoORourke - how are you getting our cell phone numbers? Who did you buy them from? Honestly, it's kinda creepy. pic.twitter.com/QXe7jnDPLt — Ken Webster Jr (@ProducerKen) September 13, 2018 If you're wondering if such texts and calls are banned under the "Do Not Call" list, well, they aren't, as politicians and campaigns are exempt from that particular law.  As for Beto, who's in a tight, closely followed race against incumbent senator and spoiled jar of mayonnaise Ted Cruz, his campaign manager Chris Evans denied the accusations and told Mashable, "Our grassroots volunteer program with thousands of Texans canvassing, phone banking, texting, and organizing is the largest this state has seen. It is fully compliant with the law." Back in September, the campaign said an "impostor" was responsible for sending out texts allegedly on behalf of the campaign trying to get undocumented migrants to cast votes in the upcoming election and asking for opinions on the dangers of socialism.  It all goes to show that, despite the rise of new technology, old campaign tricks don't change and neither do the debates over those tricks.

On Wednesday, Lieberman had ordered the closure of the Kerem Shalom goods crossing and the Erez crossing for people, after a rocket from the Palestinian territory hit a home in southern Israel, prompting the Jewish state to strike 20 Hamas targets in Gaza.

  • Government under pressure to use Salisbury sanctions against Saudi officials after Khashoggi killing

    Golocal247.com news

    Saudi officials found to have been involved in the killing of a prominent journalist in Turkey should be targeted by new sanctions introduced by Theresa May in the wake of the Salisbury attack, MPs and campaigners said on Saturday. Andrew Mitchell, the former international development secretary, led calls for the Magnitsky law, which mirrors similar legislation in the US and Canada, to be used against any individuals complicit in the death of Jamal Khashoggi. The intervention came as the government said it was "considering ... our next steps" after the kingdom admitted on Friday night that Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post, was killed in its consulate in Istanbul. Donald Trump said sanctions were a possibility and that questions remained about the Saudi handling of Khashoggi's death. "No, I am not satisfied until we find the answer," he said after a campaign speech in Nevada. "But it was a big first step, it was a good first step. But I want to get to the answer." However, he warned against scrapping an arms deal with the kingdom that would jeopardise thousands of American jobs. Saudi Arabia said that 15 members of an intelligence squad who flew to Istanbul to kidnap Mr Khashoggi had been arrested, along with three Saudi consulate staff. General Ahmed al-Assiri, the deputy intelligence chief, and Saud al-Qahtani, a close aide to Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince, were both sacked for their role in the operation. Saudi officials insisted Crown Prince Mohammed was not involved. Jamal Khashoggi death | The unanswered questions The kingdom said Mr Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi critic, died in a "fist fight" but Turkey said it would keep investigating and would not a allow a cover up. The Magnitsky law, which was passed as part of the Sanctions Act in May, allows the government to target human rights abusers with asset freezes and visa bans. Mr Mitchell, the former international development secretary, who lobbied Mrs May to introduce the measure after Russia's chemical weapons attack on a former spy in Salisbury, said: "The Magnitsky law is designed to stop human rights violators coming to and using Britain and it doesn't matter where they come from, the law should be applied without fear or favour. "It's very important that Britain acts in concert with its friends and allies around the world." Robert Lacey: What next for the House of Saud? Bill Browder, whose campaigning led to the adoption of equivalent legislation in the US, Canada, and several EU countries, told The Sunday Telegraph: “The extrajudicial killing of Jamal Khashoggi and the official cover-up is exactly the kind of situation that Magnitsky sanctions were designed to address. “The British government should use the Magnitsky Act against members of the Saudi regime who played any role in this murder." Saudi Arabia's official explanation of a brawl was greeted with scepticism around the world. Germany, France and the European Union all urged an in-depth investigation to find out what happened to the Washington Post columnist after he entered the consulate on October 2 for documents for his marriage. Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, in a joint statement with her foreign minister, said the Saudi explanation was not enough. "We expect transparency from Saudi Arabia about the circumstances of his death ... The information available about events in the Istanbul consulate is inadequate," the Germans said
