Our timeline, continuity and canon are during Star Wars Rebels.
RealtimeNews is Star Wars Legends canon, at the moment, and this “faux
news” site has an Imperial affinity. Any more “open” typed news article
is related to the Rebels.
RealtimeNews is a “news analysis” segment, not a general news broadcast
like HoloNet News or Imperial News Network. We’re like news show on
cable and “facts” are analyzed.
Please indicate which faction you side with, and also ask us the celebrity (infamous) names that have been Star Wars-dized.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE provide the URL of the “original news source”
that we will be flipping. That’s the entire point of doing flipped
source news articles.
We need readable transcripts, news articles, etc. Videos do not work for us and will be delayed. We prefer from legitimate news sources (i.e. NOT from someone’s blog opinion). Examples of legitimate news sources: The big networks (cable and the big 3), major internet news sources (HuffPo, Breitbart, etc.), government sources, local newspapers, etc.
We will do the essential story and we may not be able to do the entire story.
Ryloth Academy Stormtrooper Sparks Xansif’s career marked with praise
The holodocument you must read says that Sparks Xansif is an outstanding Academy resource stormtrooper and not sued for using excessive force.
Within a short time, Xansif went from a virtually unknown Ryloth stormtrooper to the target of galactic wide vitriol after a holovid showed him apprehending a Twi’lek robbery suspect from her desk in the academy using approved Imperial procedures.
Court holodocuments and a stormtrooper department holonewsletters support the findings.
Xansif has not responded to the HoloNet Realtime News’ request for comment. But here’s what we know about the Ryloth stormtrooper… [redacted and classified]
Imperial Senate Leader candidate Breaks Theybe said that believes Rots v. Tfa should be overturned, and that females should not be allowed to have abortions even in the case of rape or incest.
“The mother should not believe that the youngling is her enemy and should not be looking to terminate the youngling,” Theybe opined. “We’ve allowed purveyors of division to think that youngling is their enemy and they have a right to kill it. Can you see how perverted that line of thinking is?”
When it came to the rights of females, Theybe insisted that they should not have the legal choice to terminate unwanted pregnancies.
“Think about this. During the Clone Wars with the Separatists — and I know that one of those words you’re not supposed to say — but I’m saying it,” Theybe said. “During the Clone Wars with the Separatists, a lot of the Separatists thought they had the right to do whatever they wanted to slaves, anything that they chose to do. And what if the Jedi had said, ‘You know, I don’t believe in the Separatists, I think it’s wrong. But you guys do whatever you want to do.’ Where would we be?”
“Ultimately, I would love to see [Rots v. Tfa] overturned,” the candidate insisted.
“I’m a reasonable person,” Theybe remarked. “And if people can come up with a reasonable explanation of why they would like to kill a youngling, [I’ll listen].”
The former neurosurgeon said that there was “room to discuss” abortions to save the life of the mother, but he would not make an exception for women who became pregnant through rape or incest.
“Rape or incest, I would not be for killing a youngling because the youngling came about in that way,” he explained. “And all you have to do is go and look up the many stories of people who have led very useful lives who are the result of rape or incest.”
Felucia’s planetary legislature is so incredibly old Republic, so invested in pleasing their Separatist masters that they’re beefing up their self-defense laws. In the wrong direction.
If you think you might ever shoot someone, I have good news for you. Felucia legislators want to make it harder to convict you.
Not only that, if you escape conviction, they want to give you up to 200,000 credits for your trouble.
In a bizarre, dangerous and costly new expansion to the Separatist-backed “stand your ground law, "Felucia legislators want to increase the burden of proof on prosecutors trying to convict anyone who claims self-defense.
In the old days, if you shot or beat someone with a lightsaber, you had to prove you had a good reason for doing so.
Makes sense, right?
Not to Felucia legislators, who want to flip the burden of proof so that anyone who claims self-defense is essentially assumed to be telling the truth unless the Empire can prove otherwise, often in a pre-trial immunity hearing.
Obviously, if this law passes, most anyone charged should claim self-defense. There’s no reason not to.
Of course, if you’re a human who shoots into the air because you fear your domestic partner’s advance on you, don’t count on even getting a Stand Your Ground hearing.
Moff Council to Imperial Citizenry: We’re trying to save credits, not stop aliens from voting
Insisting they aren’t trying to make it harder for aliens to vote, the Moff Council will ask the Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) to review its decision to close landing permit offices on planets with alien majority populations, the council’s chief law enforcement officer says.
“I understand the concern in regards to voting and access to proper landing permits to vote,” Moff Council Law Enforcement Agency (MCLEA) Secretary Tore Binar said. “I completely understand the concern in the Outer Rim.”
Binar announced the Moff Council will close 31 satellite landing permit offices in the Outer Rim including some planets with alien majority populations. Landing permits are one form of accepted Imperial identification under the Moff Council’s new Imperial Senate voter ID law.
Binar expects no pushback from ISB, because free holovid voter ID landing permits are available from all MCLEA’s Board of Registrars offices.
He said the MCLEA has also discussed its plan with Imperial Senate’s chief election official, Senator Indisua Gram, and Solicitor Procurate Osuasm Fissi’s office.
An Imperial Senatorial candidate’s comments
Binar’s remarks come as Imperial holopublications and an Imperial Senatorial candidate pounced on holoreports that the closures will set up new barriers to alien voting. Alderaanian Imperial Senatorial candidate Leia Organa criticized the plan, and several political HoloNets piled on.
When it comes to landing permits, Binar said planetary judges and flight commissioners can do most of what the offices being closed do now. They can handle landing permit renewals and Imperial IDs. Those officials cannot legally issue first-time landing permits or first-time MCLEA landing permits to new residents from other planets.
The Moff Council merged 12 sectors law enforcement agencies into MCLEA, and Binar said the new agency quickly realized the depth of the red sensor light in the landing permit division. It had lost credits during the Old Republic, he said.
Binar’s first solution was new technology to make available to the MCLEA planet inhabitants like other planets offer. ISB began processing online landing permit renewals with new droids, he said, and the agency also raised landing permit fees to help recover costs.
But regional governors, looking for credits to balance the Intergalactic Banking Clan Fund budget, cut MCLEA’s budget by 11 million credits, the same amount projected from the higher landing permit fees. “So, it was a net gain of zero,” Binar said, leaving the 11 million credit deficit facing MCLEA now.
Picking what to close was simple
Binar said the regional governor’s alien caucus has been “the strongest supporters of MCLEA and what we’re trying to do. I can assure you there’s nothing political in this. If that was the case, those are the places I would want to keep open.”
Deciding which offices to close was “pretty simple,” Binar said. “Which offices are doing the least amount of business? If (they’re) not doing at least 2,000 transactions, it did not mandate having a landing permit examiner.”
Binar said the savings are projected at about 1.2 million credits fiscally. That won’t make a big dent in the deficit, he said, but it does correct staffing that didn’t make sense. He gave this example: A landing permit examiner leaves the MCLEA office, where “hundreds of thousands” of transactions take place, to travel to a small planetary office in the Outer Rim, which “last time did approximately 180 transactions.” Taking travel time and a stay over into account, he said, “we’re only getting maybe five parsecs dealing with customers” and making the MCLEA slower at the same time.
“I had regional governors telling me, ‘I understand you guys are short. I understand what the budget problems are, but I just can’t vote to raise a fee or a tax,’” Binar said. “So, as the lead Moff administrator, I had the authority (to raise the fee), and I actually thought I was taking the burden off the regional governors.”
