Why Utah’s Burgess Owens says he plans to challenge presidential election results on House floor

Republican Burgess Owens speaks during a campaign launch event at Hale Centre Theatre in Sandy on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019. | Kristin Murphy, Deseret News SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Republican Congressman-elect Burgess Owens says he’s backing a planned objection to Congress certifying the presidential election next week in order to fight for freedom and because the outcome doesn’t make sense to him. Owens questions how President-elect Joe Biden obtained more votes than President Donald Trump when the president did well with various minority groups. He also claims there were irregularities like 42,000 votes being counted twice in one state. “Seventy-four million votes and we’re supposed to believe that, of… Read More

House Republicans have virtually no chance of flipping the election results for Trump, but 140 of them still plan to vote against certification of the Electoral College count next week

Summary List Placement At least 140 House Republicans are planning to vote against counting electoral votes that would certify the election for President-elect Joe Biden, two Republican congressmen told CNN.  Biden won 306 electoral votes, well over the 270 needed to secure the US presidency, and flipped five states that in 2016 voted for Trump.  Trump and his campaign alongside Republican allies in Congress have spent nearly two months working to dispute the election results and make baseless claims of fraud.  Last week, Rep. Mo Brooks and several other conservative members of the House met with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to discuss the claims of fraud and said… Read More

The Utah Department of Workforce Services’ main administration building in Salt Lake City. | Kristin Murphy, Deseret News SALT LAKE CITY — The $900 billion economic relief package that President Donald Trump signed at the beginning of the week will deliver vital aid to millions of struggling households and businesses, but the nearly one-week delay in signing the bill means that it will take that much longer for the financial support to arrive. “We are dedicated to ensuring these critical benefits are made available as quickly as possible to those who are eligible,” said Bethany Hyatt, public information officer with the Utah Department of Workforce Services.

With Seahawks record in reach, DK Metcalf sets sights on NFL record

After sliding to the final pick of the second round in the 2019 NFL Draft, all Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf has done is produce and prove doubters wrong. Who could the Seahawks host in the first round of the playoffs? In his first NFL season, Metcalf caught 56 passes for 900 yards and seven touchdowns. In his first career playoff game, he set an NFL rookie record with 160 receiving yards against the Philadelphia Eagles. To say he’s taken built off that success is an understatement. Now in his second season, Metcalf is the Seahawks’ leading receiver, as he leads Seattle in receiving yards (1,282) as well as touchdowns (10).… Read More

Apple knew a supplier was using child labor but took 3 years to fully cut ties, despite the company’s promises to hold itself to the ‘highest standards,’ report says (AAPL)

Summary List Placement Apple is back under the spotlight over labor conditions in its supply chain following an explosive report from The Information on Thursday that revealed new details about the company’s reluctance to cut ties with suppliers who violate its ethics policies.
