U.S. Supreme (may refer to: Supreme (brand), a clothing brand based in New York Supreme (comics), a comic book superhero Supreme (cookery), a term used in cookery Supreme (film), a 2016 Telugu film Supreme) Court takes up presidential Electoral College dispute
WASHINGTON (Reuters (or Reutter may refer to the following people)) – As the 2020 race heats up, the Supreme Court agreed on Friday to hear a dispute involving the complex U.S. presidential election system focusing on whether Electoral College electors are free to break their pledges to back the candidate (candidate, or nominee, is the prospective recipient of an award or honor, or a person seeking or being considered for some kind of position; for example: to be elected to an office — in this case a) who wins their state’s popular vote, an act that could upend an election.

The Supreme Court will take (take is a single continuous recorded performance) up appeals in two cases – from Washington (commonly refers to: Washington (state), United States Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States Federal government of the United States (metonym) Washington metropolitan area, the) state and Colorado (other variants) is a state of the Western United States encompassing most of the southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the) – involving electors who decided to vote in the Electoral College process for someone other than Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 even though she won the popular (or social status is the quality of being well liked, admired or well known to a particular group) vote in their states.
The justices will determine if such so-called faithless electors have the discretion to cast Electoral College votes as they see fit or whether states can impose restrictions including with penalties. The case is expected to be argued in April and decided by the end of June.
President Donald Trump is seeking re-election on Nov. 3, with a field of Democrats seeking their party (party is a gathering of people who have been invited by a host for the purposes of socializing, conversation, recreation, or as part of a festival or other commemoration of a special occasion)’s nomination to challenge him. His administration did not take a side in either case.
“We are glad the Supreme Court has recognized the paramount importance of clearly determining the rules of the road for presidential electors for the upcoming election (election is a formal group decision-making process by which a population chooses an individual to hold public office. , It is usually used in Democratic nations) and all future elections,” said Lawrence Lessig, a lawyer for the faithless electors (may refer to: Prince-elector or elector, a member of the electoral college of the Holy Roman Empire, having the function of electing the Holy Roman Emperors Elector, a member of an electoral) sanctioned in Washington and Colorado.
Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, a Democrat, said she hopes the justices will let states enforce their laws (is commonly understood as a system of rules that are created and enforced through social or governmental institutions to regulate conduct, although its precise definition is a matter of).
“Unelected and unaccountable presidential electors should not be allowed to decide the presidential election without regard to voters’ choices and state law,” Griswold said.
The dispute involves the U.S. presidential election system set out in the U.S. Constitution in which the winner is determined not by amassing a majority of the national popular vote but by securing a majority of the electoral votes that are allotted to the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia (may refer to: Columbia (name), the historical female national personification of the United States of America, and a poetic name for the Americas).
Individuals who serve as Electoral College electors – typically party loyalists – cast (may refer to) these votes. All states, with the exception of Maine and Nebraska, have (or having may refer to: the concept of ownership any concept of possession; see Possession (disambiguation) an English verb used: to denote linguistic possession in a broad sense as an auxiliary) a winner-takes-all system awarding all electors to the presidential candidate who wins the state’s popular vote.
The number (number is a mathematical object used to count, measure, and label) of electors in each state is the sum of its two U.S. senators and its number of members in the House of Representatives, based on population size. The District (district is a type of administrative division that, in some countries, is managed by local government) of Columbia, which is not a state, is allotted three electors.
Typically an overlooked formality, the Electoral College took on greater importance after the 2016 election, when 10 electors cast ballots for someone other than their party’s candidate. That was an unusually high number of faithless electors and could have changed the outcome in five of the 58 prior U.S. presidential elections, according to legal papers in one of the appeals filed at the Supreme Court.
LOSING THE POPULAR VOTE
Trump defeated Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by a margin of 304 to 227 Electoral College votes despite losing the popular vote nationally by about 3 million votes (is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns). Faithless electors could change the outcome of presidential elections with thinner Electoral College margins.
Electors pledge to vote for their party’s candidate if that person wins the state’s popular vote. At issue in the cases are laws requiring that electors follow through on those pledges.
While 32 states and the District of Columbia have such laws, a handful enforce them by removing and replacing faithless electors, or in some cases (or CASE may refer to), imposing fines.
The plaintiffs challenged the sanctions, saying they were deprived of their rights under the Constitution’s Article II as well as its 12th Amendment, which spell out the Electoral College (college (Latin: collegium) is an educational institution or a constituent part of one) process.
In Colorado, one elector, Micheal Baca, was replaced and his vote canceled when he sought to vote for Republican John Kasich, Ohio’s former governor. A federal judge dismissed Baca’s challenge (may refer to: Voter challenging or caging, a method of challenging the registration status of voters Euphemism for disability Peremptory challenge, a dismissal of potential jurors from jury duty), but the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year revived the suit, concluding that Baca (may refer to: Baca (surname), including a list of people with the name Baca, Hungarian name of Bața, Bistrița-Năsăud, a village in Romania Baca, Yucatán, seat of Baca Municipality, Mexico Baca)’s constitutional rights were violated.
The Washington state case arose after three faithless electors voted for former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, a moderate Republican, instead of Clinton. They each were (and wer are archaic terms for adult male humans and were often used for alliteration with wife as “were and wife” in Germanic-speaking cultures, and in the Old English construction werman, paired) fined $1,000 for their defiance, which they called the first such penalty in U.S. history. The Washington Supreme Court (court is any person or institution, often as a government institution, with the authority to adjudicate legal disputes between parties and carry out the administration of justice in civil,) in 2019 upheld the fines.

India’s top agent Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) leads the Elite Shadow Unit of R&AW, a compact group of the crème de la crème of the armed forces who are personally trained by him and work with him on various high-risk missions (may refer to) across the world. Among Kabir and Colonel (is a senior military officer rank below the general officer ranks) Luthra’s key targets are an international arms baron Rizwan Ilyasi who has been key in various acts of terrorism against the country.
Khalid (Tiger Shroff) has fought his way up the ranks of the Indian armed forces. His greatest challenge and battle has been to fight against the sins of his father, once a decorated soldier working with Kabir who had turned a traitor. His ambition has been to join Kabir’s team to remove any stains on their family name. Kabir is not keen due to their past history, but Colonel Luthra requests him to, and gradually Kabir (Das (IAST: Kabīr) was a 15th-century Indian mystic poet and saint, whose writings influenced Hinduism’s Bhakti movement and his verses are found in Sikhism’s scripture Guru Granth Sahib) is also impressed by Khalid’s intense dedication and grit. Khalid becomes Kabir’s greatest soldier ever, flirting with (or WITH may refer to: With, a preposition in English Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel With (novel), a novel by Donald) death repeatedly in mission after mission as they go after the country’s enemies, including a mission against Rizwan Ilyasi that nearly kills Khalid.
But Khalid (is a popular Arabic male given name meaning “eternal”, and it also appears as a surname)’s greatest mission, his toughest yet, is still to come. When his own mentor (is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person) Kabir turns rogue and starts to go after top officials and scientists and officers in the Indian establishment, targeting and executing them viciously across the world.
Colonel Luthra is unsure if Khalid has it in him to go after Kabir. Is he clever enough to hunt the man who trained him, and even if he does get him, does he have it in him to put a bullet in his hero’s head? Luthra (is an surname originating in the Punjab region of India) advises Khalid against the mission but he insists – he is the best protégé and the only one who can track the mentor. And only Kabir can answer the crucial question – why did he turn rogue?
A vicious cat and mouse game ensues as protégé goes after (may refer to) mentor in a war that spills across the globe. As the chase unravels both Kabir and Khalid begin to finally realize, what desperate stakes really drive them in this terrifying war.

Planning Your Wardrobe For Traveling To A New City
Even (may refer to) though travel is mainly for business or pleasure, sometimes it can lead to a frightening experience. Vacations can be traumatic when you have failed to sufficiently plan. Follow the tips below to put yourself in the best position.
When you are flying, you have to make sure to plan ahead even before you get to the airport. The trip to the airport requires that you give ample time to deal with traffic, rush hour conditions and other unexpected delays. Pack your suitcase beforehand to save time. Prepare ahead so that you are not rushed when you need to get to your flight. Nothing is worse than missing your flight.
One of the most important things you can do to prepare for travel is to itemize what you need to pack (or packs may refer to). Anywhere from a week to a few months before you go on your trip, make a list of the things (or The Thing may refer to) you absolutely need to pack. This will enable you to pack only the things that you really need (need is something that is necessary for an organism to live a healthy life) and it can also ensure that you will (may refer to) not leave anything behind.
When you plan (plan is typically any diagram or list of steps with details of timing and resources, used to achieve an objective to do something) a vacation (vacation, or holiday, is a leave of absence from a regular occupation, or a specific trip or journey, usually for the purpose of recreation or tourism) trip, be flexible about your destination. Though you may enjoy visiting the same locale as a favorite, you can enjoy some variety and new memories by choosing an untested destination. Additionally, selecting a different destination (may refer to: Destination (game), a board game Destination (magazine), a Saudi Arabian lifestyle monthly Destination Films, a division of Sony PicturesIn music: Destination (group), a disco studio) can be key to saving a little money when (may refer to: Usually a question whose answer refers to time, period or phase) the vacation budget is tight.
When traveling with a toddler, you have to bring along things that will keep him interested and happy during the trip. Take a few of their their favorite toys. Also, consider picking up something new. A new toy is more likely to hold your child’s attention than something they’ve seen before.
Check the websites of your airline to get the best (or The Best may refer to) deal. While many discount sites have good rates, you may find better fares through the airline.
Select a pair of shoes you will comfortable in and can remove easily for air travel. You are required to take them off when going through security checks. Comfort is very important. You are not going to have to do as much walking as you will sitting in most cases, so the heavy-duty support isn’t really that necessary. Canvas mules or other comfortable sandals are ideal wear during travel.
When making hotel reservations, ask if there are any impending renovations. Few things are worse travel experiences than waking up too early to the sound of construction noise. Avoid any time periods in which remodeling will occur.
Visit websites and forums that are related to travel (is the movement of people between distant geographical locations). Getting involved with others that travel is a great way to get prepared for your trip (may refer to). This will help you gain new friends and prevent you from repeating the mistakes made by others (usually refers to: Other (philosophy), a concept in psychology and philosophyOther or The Other may also refer to) or overlooking an unknown gem during your vacation.
Though travel should be relaxing and fun, it can easily become burdensome without some proper learning beforehand. With the above tips, you will be able to put your new knowledge to use and make your next traveling experience (is the first person effects or influence of an event or subject gained through involvement in or exposure to it. The term does not imply that useful or long term learning, or the acquisition of) easy and pleasurable.
