Meyer’s 49 year old daughter, Satin, an anti mask activist licensed as her caregiver, had summoned the demonstrators, foot soldiers in a rapidly expanding network called People’s Rights. With the tap of a thumb on a smartphone, members can call a militia like they’d call an Uber and stage a protest within minutes.”We have the potential for multiple Malheurs in multiple states, in that at any moment they could bring hardened far right activists, often heavily armed, into any one event,” said Devin Burghart, executive director of the Institute for Research Education on Human Rights.In October, the Seattle based organization and the Montana Human Rights Network published an investigation that found that Bundy had rapidly expanded People’s Rights by fusing his core of far right paramilitary supporters with “a mass base of new activists radicalized in protest” of coronavirus restrictions.Group leaders envision a form of “neighborhood nationalism,” in which the “righteous” stand against the “wicked,” the report said.Investigators found that the network had 20,000 members in 16 states. In an interview with The Times late last month near his home in Idaho, Bundy claimed it had grown to almost 50,000 people in 35 states.Bundy said his sole cause was defending the freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution even for LGBTQ people and Black Lives Matter activists whose views he may oppose.He said he never supported President Trump and didn’t vote in the last two presidential elections.
Perhaps the more interesting gadget of the two are the AR glasses, which are code named N421 (we’ve previously heard codenames Iris and Mirrorshades; it’s unclear whether these are the same devices). These will be meant to worn all day, meaning they’ll have to be slimmer, lighter and more comfortable than the headset. Apple’s current prototypes are essentially sunglasses with “thick frames” with the electronics stuffed inside, the report says perhaps (my guess) something similar to Snap’s Spectacles..
The deadline for registered voters to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you is the Thursday before the election, February 11. However, voters should absolutely not wait, due to possible delays in mail delivery. If you get an absentee ballot mailed to you, you can still decide to vote at the polls on Election Day if you haven’t returned it.
