Patrick Brazil confirms Labour leadership bid


In the most expected move, Shadow Chancellor Patrick Brazil finally confirmed that he would be seeking the Labour leadership. He was flanked by every member of the Shadow Cabinet and twelve of the party's sixteen MEP's.

"I have been humbled by the faith and support my colleagues have placed in me" adding that "We have made big gains, but we as a party haven't done enough yet to gain the trust of the voters to once again serve as the government, I aim to do that".

Nominations close at midday on Friday, and it is unlikely another candidate will be able to seek the required nominations, to make the election a contested one. William Turnbull (MP for Birmingham Edrington) is attempting to get enough nominations by the deadline, but that at the current time, seems very unlikely. Most in the party believe that a month long leadership election campaign would not help party unity, and that the best thing for Labour is for it to rally around the one single unity candidate.

Congressman apologizes for showing "deep fake" of First Lady Lauren Parker Seaborn at meeting

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2023

Congressman Roy Ryan (R-TX) has apologized after it was reported that he used a censored "deep fake" image purportedly showing First Lady Lauren Parker Seaborn nude during a meeting of the Ellis County Republican party. Ryan reportedly showed the manipulated image of the First Lady's appearance photoshopped onto a different woman posing nude as part of a presentation on what he called the "fake news media" and the need for stronger regulation of what he said was a "truth-free zone" on various social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The image Roy showed was censored to avoid showing the woman's nipples and genitalia, but the original image appears to have been created from a photograph of an adult actress.

"I apologize for an inappropriate and crude photo-manipulated image of First Lady Lauren Parker Seaborn," Ryan said in a statement posted on his own social media accounts. "There is no excuse for my lapse in taste and judgment and I hope that it in no way impugns the important work my office is doing against anti-conservative and anti-democratic forces within the tech industry."

"Deepfakes" are a form of media where one person's likeness is convincingly manipulated to replace that of another person using machine learning or artificial intelligence (AI). They are a controversial form of media due to their convincing result being potentially used in the creation of fake news, pornography featuring celebrities or other figures, and use in several illegal ways (including to facilitate financial fraud, creating "revenge porn" or images of child sexual abuse).

Speaker Daniel Maddox (D-IL) said that Ryan's actions were "thoughtless and disrespectful" and that the Democratic majority would look into a resolution reprimanding Ryan when Congress returns following its August recess.

Neither the White House nor the Office of the First Lady responded when asked for comment.

Riley says GOP would accept a "Brady/Ashland deal" from White House

Birmingham, AL
— Senate Minority Leader Cody Riley (R-AL) says the Grand Old Party would accept a "Brady/Ashland deal" from the Seaborn administration to avoid any potential filibuster of a nominee to replace the late Supreme Court justice Jackson Hoyt.

"I don't often heap praises on Jed Bartlet, but he made a good decision twenty years ago to preserve the balance of the court when a conservative justice suddenly died in the midst of a Democratic president's term," Riley said on Fox and Friends earlier today. "It left both sides happy with a liberal woman to replace the late Chief Justice [Roy] Ashland, and for Republicans, the strong conservative justice, Justice [Christopher] Mulready, was placed on the court."

The "deal" engineered by Bartlet and his administration averted a politically difficult confirmation fight when conservative Justice Owen Brady abruptly died in early 2004. Bartlet wished to nominate liberal federal judge Evelyn Baker Lang, but was unlikely to receive enough votes for her nomination to replace Brady. Instead, the administration persuaded ailing Chief Justice Roy Ashland, the leader of the court's liberal wing, to resign and offered Mulready as a replacement for Brady while Lang would replace Ashland. Both nominees were easily confirmed by the Senate and allowing Bartlet to replace the liberal lion Ashland with another dedicated liberal justice.

The maneuver, while largely praised at the time, has retrospectively come under criticism from progressives and liberal legal advocacy groups. Mulready quickly emerged as the leader of the court's conservative wing, and his replacement of Brady has been instrumental in the court's rightward drift after Glen Allen Walken appointed three justices during his presidency.

An additional hiccup in the plan is that neither of the two liberal justices most often named for replacement in a "Brady/Ashland" swap—Lang or fellow Bartlet appointee Roberto Mendoza—have indicated that they intend to resign before the court begins its next term in October. Mendoza, who at age 78 is the oldest sitting justice on the court, has stated in previous interviews that he would continue to serve "as long as my health allows", while Lang has stated that she plans to "reflect and consider" whether she should remain on the bench upon her 80th birthday in 2027.

The White House declined to comment on Riley's offer, stating that President Seaborn was "working with staff and top legal minds" to produce a candidate to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat.

Brazil takes over as Labour leader

Patrick Brazil formally took over as leader of the Labour Party today, having been certified as the only candidate to meet the requirements for the leadership election on Friday.

Brazil, who had served as the party's Shadow Chancellor under his predecessor Jack Coll, has developed a wide following among Labour supporters and was the presumed frontrunner in the party's 2019 leadership contest before deciding against standing, citing family issues.

The 53 year-old MP for Inverclyde first came into Parliament in 2004 and has been a fixture in Labour's frontbench for a decade. Among his agenda for the Labour Party is to "provide a strong but compassionate alternative" to the government, which he said had "failed miserably" during the Conservative Party's 13 years in power.

In his speech upon formally accepting the party's leadership, Brazil characterized the current minority government, propped up by a confidence and supply agreement with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and National People's Party (NPP) as a "wibbly-wobbley" arrangement that was "waiting to implode."

"The party that promised us stability and a strong hand at the economy has led us to a period of slow economic growth and a potential destabilization of Northern Ireland and a second European referendum that would cripple us economically," Brazil said. "We must reject the economic policies that have led to higher economic inequality, exacerbated our housing shortage and that serve only a select few at the expense of the many...We must also reject the politics of division and hatred in our actions as well as words, and not allow political expediency to get in the way of our principles."

The new Labour leader plans to announce a reshuffle of the party's frontbench, the current shadow cabinet, later this week.

White House narrows list to four in Supreme Court search

The White House and President Seaborn have narrowed the short list to replace the late justice Jackson Hoyt down to four potential nominees, according to NBS exclusive reports.

According to sources familiar with the process, President Seaborn has begun interviewing each of the four candidates on his short list to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. Sources say that the president intends to announce his choice within the coming weeks, giving the nominee time to meet with many senators before Congress returns from its August recess in early September.

The four individuals Seaborn is reportedly considering are:

Ruth Sandberg Cutler of New York, president of Harvard Law School: Reportedly considered for the seat that ultimately went to Olivia Emmett Franklin, Cutler, 60, clerked for former justice Joseph Crouch in 1988 and mirrors his strong liberal bent. She's also one of the leading scholars on constitutional law, although unlike the other candidates on this list, she has no judicial experience.

Gerri Hawken of Ohio, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit: The only Santos appointee reported to be under consideration, Hawken, 56, served as a judicial counsel to Seaborn's former Secretary of State August Adair during the latter's Senate term before joining the bench. Like Adair, Hawken's judicial record doesn't seem to excite either intense opposition or intense support— although with such a high-stakes nomination, perhaps that is what the White House desires.

Ronald Lin of California, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit: Lin was one of Seaborn's first appointments to the bench, taking his seat in March 2019. Like Cutler, Lin, 51, was one of the finalists of the first time Seaborn was given an opportunity to fill a seat on the Supreme Court. His time as an appeals judge has been limited, but he has largely stuck to the liberal line on most issues, although his favorable opinions on school choice and skepticism of affirmative action programs may cause trouble among some key Democratic constituencies.

Wilson Randy of Michigan, U.S. Attorney General: Randy's name has been increasingly bandied about in recent days, perhaps as an olive branch of sorts to Senate Republicans. While Randy was appointed to his previous position on the U.S. District Court for Western Michigan by Josiah Bartlet, he earned a reputation as a moderate jurist more concerned about the quality of his opinions than their effects. Turning 65 next month, Randy would be the oldest new justice ever named to the court (Harlan F. Stone was promoted to chief justice at the age of 68 by Franklin D. Roosevelt), a sure factor in his possible role in defusing a politically delicate selection process.

I have to ask again if there is a Deputy PM and Shadow DPM why do you need a first secretary of state and shadow?
Ok fair question.
We have established in this timeline, that the position of "First Secretary of State" is basically the number three in the Government. Although it was not always used, but it is has now become established after the events of December 2014 during the "Carter stroke crises" when the Prime Minister was incapacitated by a stroke, and the Deputy Prime Minister (Richard Samuels) was out of communication (he was stranded in his home constituency in Scotland because of a storm), there was also a Foreign Policy crises with Spain threatening to cut off Gibraltar, no one knew who is in charge of the government, the former PM Maureen Graty who was then serving in the cabinet as Party Chair & Defence Secretary attempted to take over the Cabinet, until Samuels was airlifted out of Scotland.
Of course in OTL the position of "First Secretary" was really introduced in 2010 to make William Hague the number three man in the coalition government, after Nick Clegg (Lib Dem) was Deputy DM, so Hague became number three in the Gov and Number Two in the party (he was effectively Cameron's Deputy as Con Leader).
It was confirmed in the original thread by Tim Thomason, that the First holder of the post of "First Secretary" was Richard Samuels between 1993-1996 under Henry Reed.

That makes sense and in context I can see the argument for it (the aforementioned what happens when the PM and the DPM both aren't available)

The issue is First Secretary of State is supposed to outrank all cabinet ministers other than the PM. So they would outrank the DPM. Slightly awkward.

It wasn't the ideal situation, but the best one. Also for it out ranking the others, it is a technically, because everyone knew that during OTL Coalition gov that Clegg was the number two man in the government not Hague.

Seaborn nominates Ronald Lin for Supreme Court, would be first Asian-American justice

Wednesday, August 16th, 2023

President Sam Seaborn announced today that he intends to nominate Judge Ronald Lin of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to the Supreme Court, potentially making history with the first Asian-American to sit on the nation's highest court.

In a brief ceremony at the Rose Garden, Seaborn introduced Lin, who immigrated from Taiwan with his family as a child, as a "brilliant legal mind" whose life story "represents the promise of America." If confirmed, Lin would be the first justice born outside the United States since Felix Frankfurter, who served from 1939 to 1962.

Lin was one of Seaborn's first appointments to the federal bench, taking office less than three months after Seaborn took office in January 2019. He was reported to be on the president's shortlist for the previous Supreme Court vacancy, but instead Seaborn chose Olivia Emmett Franklin.

"I am so honored to be here today," Lin said in brief remarks. "I still do not believe it is possible that the same boy who came to this country knowing only a few words of English could, years later, be given the opportunity to sit on his new nation's highest court."

After graduating from Yale Law School, Lin spent most of his legal career in the Department of Justice, rising to become an assistant United States attorney for the Central District of California. He was confirmed to his current role on the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit by a 71-24 margin. His thin judicial record shows him to be largely in line with the Supreme Court's liberal wing, which would result in the balance of the court shifting to the left, with Edward Appleton, a moderate, becoming the new swing justice instead of Judi Rand (who can be characterized as a right-leaning moderate).

The president stated that Lin would seek to meet with "as many senators as possible" in the run-up to Congress returning from its summer recess in early September. With Lin's nomination and 18 sitting Republican senators having voted to confirm him in his current role four years ago, it remains to be seen if Senate Republicans will act on the demand by several right-wing talk show hosts and television personalities to filibuster Seaborn's replacement of the late conservative justice Jackson Hoyt.

Nebraska congressman convicted of soliciting illegal campaign contributions, lying to FBI

Greenbelt, MD
— Congressman Anthony Bentley (R-NE) was found guilty by a Maryland jury today of four felonies, including two counts of knowingly soliciting illegal campaign contributions from foreign nationals, one count of lying to federal investigators and one count of obstruction of justice for attempting to conceal evidence from said investigators.

The ten-term congressman, who represents part of eastern Nebraska, was charged by federal prosecutors in March after information that he knowingly solicited campaign donations from foreign nationals, which is prohibited by law, at a 2021 event for the conservative think-tank Americans for Free Enterprise held in Chevy Chase, Maryland was given to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Bentley, who reportedly solicited the funds to amass a sizable campaign war-chest ahead of Nebraska's 2026 gubernatorial campaign to replace term-limited governor Ben Lane (R), denied the accusations and made false statements to the FBI to conceal his involvement. The FBI also uncovered electronic messages that Bentley had attempted to conceal from investigators.

Bentley's former chief of staff, David Plond, testified against his former boss as part of a plea deal with federal investigators in exchange for immunity from prosecution for obstruction of justice in trying help Bentley conceal evidence of his crimes. Bentley faces a sentence of up to five years on each of the counts he was convicted on.

Speaker of the House Daniel Maddox (D-IL) and House Minority Leader Mitchell Harris (R-IN) both called on Bentley to resign following news of his conviction. Aside from current or former public officials convicted of certain treasonous crimes (per the terms of the Fourteenth Amendment), criminal convictions do not bar an individual from serving in Congress. However, Congress can and has voted to expel members after being convicted of crimes, with the most recent being the 1980 expulsion of Michael Myers (D-PA) after he was convicted of bribery.

Rep King spending congressional August recess replacing "unchristian books" at local free libraries in Georgia & says she removed a copy of "Anne Frank's diary"


Georgia Congresswomen Patty King she's been replacing “terrible Unchristian” books with Bibles in local little free libraries in Georgia during the congressional August recess. Speaking on "The Christian Georgia" podcast she said that people shouldn't read books that "don't align with our Christian values."

So she has been removing frowned-upon books from little free library kiosks and replacing them with Bibles. "I have been swapping out books in little free libraries," she said. "I have seen good books, terrible books.Recently I have been picking up free Bibles at flea markets and thrift stores. Sometimes I find good devotion books or kids’ Bible stories at a good price to add.”

King said she was inspired to do this after seeing a lot of LGBTQ Pride-themed books in the libraries. "From what I have seen a lot of these books and other things don’t align with Christian values," she added "I saw a bunch of Pride stuff in one. There’s a group of communists who are very active in keeping little libraries well stocked with filth and lies. They had even placed a copy of Anne Franks diary in one place, and we all know that the book is a complete fabrication , it's been proved that it was written in ballpoint pen before such pens where even invented".

NBS can report that King's claims about the "Diary of Anne Frank" have long been disproved, and the main claim of it was written in ballpoint pen was made by French holocaust denier Robert Faurisson in 1985. This theory has been discredited. There are only three instances where a ballpoint pen was used in the diary: on two scraps of paper that were added into the diary at a later date (the contents of which have never been considered Anne Frank's writing and are usually attributed to being her Father Otto Frank's notes) and in the page numbers (also certainly added by Otto Frank while organizing the writings and papers after the war).

What a shitty person. Those little free libraries are good. The lady made me dislike her already however...

Calling the "Diary of Anne Frank a fraud makes Rep. King an especially shitty person in my book. My grandfather saw what they did to the Jewish people and it affected him deeply after the war.

I know the character is not real but it is sad I can see this being done or already have been done in reality with the books. And this lady is full mask off on her craziness.

Great job Marky you made me hate her.
