Trump to Implement Commission on "Election Integrity"
Feinstein has said it is important that the USA does not lose sight of the context in which this commission has been created. The soon-to-be assembled commission will be composed of Republican and Democrat state election officials and other experts .

"The whole process has been flawed since the beginning, and this secretive removal under the cloak of darkness, outside of the public bid, masked contractors, and using unidentified money wreaks of atrocious government".

The statue of General PGT Beauregard is the third of four monuments the city has taken down.

The crowd of onlookers, about evenly divided between statue supporters and opponents, were mostly subdued, though a few individuals shouted at one another across the police barricade separating them. They will be crated and stored during this process.

It had been tied up in legal battles over efforts to remove it since at least the 1980s. In Shreveport, a citizen advisory committee is discussing whether to remove a 1906 monument commemorating a Confederate soldier and four generals, including Gens. Previously taken down were the Battle of Liberty Place monument and a statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

Gen. Robert E Lee's monument is next. He fought for civil rights. Mayor Mitch Landrieu took these photographs of the removal of the P.G.T. Beauregard statue and posted them on his verified Twitter page. In 1989, construction on Canal Street forced the removal of the monument, but it was relocated to its past location on Iberville Street in 1993. Dylann Roof, an avowed white supremacist, shot and killed nine black parishioners at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

How does Hillyer feel about the other confederate statues? It was commissioned by the Jefferson Davis Memorial Association. An elevated statue of the man who was, perhaps, the Confederacy's best-known military figure and the man who surrendered to the Union Army, Gen. Robert E. Lee, remains at the center of a busy traffic circle near the city's riverfront. It is the third monument to come down in the city.

Beauregard commanded the attack at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, that marked the outbreak of the Civil War.

With ransomware , a piece of code gets into your system, locks down your access, and sends copies of your files out to others. The attack has been very severe in some regions that some countries need much time to come back to the normal track.

Hillyer said his comment is not just some random right-wing response but reflects how bad Landrieu has handled the monument situation.
