  • Freddie Gray Case: Prosecutor Doubles Down On Wrong Law

    (Doesn’t understand difference between a “stop” and an “arrest”.)This past Monday the office of Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby filed a motion in opposition to an earlier defense motion (oofah, lawyers) requesting that charges against six Baltimore police officers be dismissed, or alternatively, that Mosby recuse herself from the case.We covered the defense motion for dismissal/recusal in detail in a previous post, here: Freddie Gray Case: Detailed Analysis of Motion to Recuse Prosecutor.Mosby’s motion in opposition (embedded at the bottom of this post) is remarkable for a number of reasons, most substantially for it’s epic levels of projection.In the motion’s second...

    Right now, there's a well-organized, below-the-radar effort to render the Electoral College effectively useless. It's called the National Popular Vote, and it would turn our presidential elections into a majority-rule affair. Would this be good or bad? Author, lawyer, and Electoral College expert Tara Ross explains. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXnjGD7j2B0TranscriptIn every presidential election, only one question matters: which candidate will get the 270 votes needed to win the Electoral College? Our Founders so deeply feared a tyranny of the majority that they rejected the idea of a direct vote for President. That's why they created the Electoral College. For more than two centuries...

    It's been a troubling semester, but not because many of my students passively and/or actively resist the knowledge that I try to pass on to them. It's been frustrating not merely because government regulations and mandates have made me into a secretary filling out a myriad of online forms. It's been disheartening not only because leftist propaganda surrounds me and I am but one small voice in the academic desert trying to teach true American core values. No, it's been a sad and sometimes heartbreaking semester because many college students' assorted troubles are related to the fact that they are...

    A recent letter to the editor written by Professor Bruce McKinney shows why we cannot trust most college professors and administrators to defend free speech. In just four short paragraphs, McKinney misrepresents key facts, misapplies relevant law, and attempts to project his own hypocrisy upon those who are committed to defending the free exchange of ideas. His letter is presented in full with my commentary interspersed between each paragraph:A recent letter cited "UNCW's administration attempt to stop freedom of speech" in which very large graphic images of aborted fetuses were shown on campus.If Professor McKinney’s letter stopped here, he would...

    Apparently ABC News standards have dropped since Geraldo Rivera used to work for them. Unlike George Stephanopolous -- who is currently still employed even after his $75,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation -- Rivera was axed when he made a mere $200 political contribution back in 1985. Appearing on Fridays edition of FNCs Fox and Friends, Rivera told the cast I was fired by ABC News in 1985...the official reason given for my being fired in 1985 was a $200 donation I made to a non-partisan mayoral campaign. Rivera did add that he was in a very contentious relationship with...

    It sure was a productive Tuesday for Ed Schultz at his federal trial where he’s being sued for breach of partnership. He managed to make a huge liar out of both himself and MSNBC President Phil Griffin.Schultz’s bid to convince jurors that he got his MSNBC show without any help from NBC sound engineer and producer Michael Queen proved rather deceitful thanks to his own electronic footprints.Worse yet, the behemoth broadcaster’s ongoing attempt to turn the courtroom into his own little TV studio may have faltered when he walked into plaintiff attorney Catfish Abbott’s trap.More evidence also emerged about just...

    VATICAN CITY (AP) The Vatican officially recognized the state of Palestine in a new treaty finalized Wednesday, immediately sparking Israeli ire and accusations that the move hurt peace prospects. The treaty, which concerns the activities of the Catholic Church in Palestinian territory, makes clear that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic recognition from the Palestine Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine. The Vatican had welcomed the decision by the U.N. General Assembly in 2012 to recognize a Palestinian state. But the treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state and...

    Freddie Gray family lawyer William Murphy CNN reports that attorneys for the six Baltimore police officers charged by Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby in the death of Freddie Gray have filed a lengthy motion in Baltimore City District Court to have Mosby removed from the case–either by her recusal or by court order.The motion–which I have not yet seen, but hope to soon–purportedly sets out at least five conflicts of interest as the basis for recusal, including: Both Mosby and her husband, a Baltimore City Council member, are positioned for personal financial and political gain from the case.Mosby has existing personal relationships...

    Tom Brady will be the highest profile player ever suspended in the 96-year history of the NFL. Roger Goodell's decision is expected to be announced next week and it is no longer a matter of if the NFL commissioner will suspend Brady, but for how long he will suspend him. In conversations I've had with several key sources who always have a good sense of what goes on at 345 Park Avenue, there is little doubt Goodell considers Brady's role in DeflateGate a serious violation. The NFL is convinced, according to sources, that connecting all the dots of the evidence...

Police were told that Simpson had expressed interest in the event and that his social media posts were linked to ISIS.

    Reports on the terrorist attack on the "Draw Muhammed" art competition in Garland, Texas indicate that the two jihadis, armed with "assault rifles" and wearing "protective gear," were very quickly neutralized (within seconds of initiating their attack) by a Garland traffic cop armed with only a handgun. The bad guys rolled up at the site, exited their vehicle, and immediately opened fire on a police car at the entrance. They were able only to wound an unarmed security officer before the traffic officer engaged them and terminated the threat (and, in the process, their worthless lives).

The officers who arrested him “failed to establish probable cause for Mr. Gray’s arrest, as no crime had been committed,” she said, describing the arrest as illegal.

    Russia announced Monday that it will sell Iran advanced S-300 surface-to-air missiles. The sale, which ends an embargo dating back to 2010, shows that President Barack Obama is rapidly losing control of the international consensus on Iran. It also sets Israel a deadline to attack Iransince Israel has treated the S-300 system as a red line, and has attacked Syria several times recently to prevent advanced Russian air defense and anti-ship missile systems from becoming operational. ********* Effectively, then, Putin is calling the worlds bluff. He is setting a deadline for Israel to make a fateful choice, and daring the...

    RUSH: Here's what I worry about on the Republican side. I told this to Ted Cruz. He asked. Don't sweat it. I wasn't volunteering things. He asked. One of the things I've noticed over the 25-plus years of doing this program, every Republican primary, doesn't matter, every Republican presidential primary, there's a series of candidates. Some are conservative, some are okay, some are bad, but they're conservatives. Some have been really good. And we take 'em out one by one because they're not perfect. I'll give you an example. One of the first days -- well, recent first days. One...

    RUSH: Hey, hey. Hey, hey, hey, have you heard the news, folks? Have you heard the news? Some guy who has only been a senator for a short time, some guy without any real executive experience, some guy whose biggest qualification is he went to Harvard Law School, some guy with a foreign name and mixed ethnic background, some guy who has questions about his birth certificate, have you heard this guy's running for president? Isn't that crazy? And the Democrats are telling us this guy is not qualified, that he's dumb, that he's stupid, that he's incendiary, and that...

    On Tuesday, former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her first extensive comments addressing her use of a personal email address and private email server while in office, saying that she did not use them to communicate anything confidential but that she wishes she had used a government-issued email address instead. She also sought the convenience of a single device. Venafi, a Salt Lake City computer security firm, has conducted an analysis of clintonemail.com and determined that for the first three months of Secretary Clintons term, access to the server was not encrypted or authenticated with a digital...

    Two weeks ago, a group of students at the University of California at Irvine removed a U.S. flag from a common area of the student-government suite. Shortly afterwards, six undergraduate members of the Legislative Council of the Associated Students of UCI (ASUCI) passed a resolution banning the display of the flags of any nation in the office lobby. The resolution was authored by student Matthew Guevara of the School of Social Ecology. Among the reasons the legislative council objected to the American flag were: The American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism. A common ideological understanding...

    I side with the people who think that Tom Cotton and the 46 senators who joined with him in an open letter to apprise the Iranians about the way our Constitutional system works did the world a great service. As I’ll discuss at greater length below, the letter is a simple, beautifully written exposition about the American Constitution and its effects. In addition, it’s a wonderful honey pot for calling stupid Progressives out of their dark caves and exposing their ignorance to bright sunlight.The Cotton letter is really nothing more than an elegant primer about the balance of powers and...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton will address her email practices at the State Department following a week of scrutiny and few signs that it will go away. CBS News Nancy Cordes reports that Clinton will address the controversy Tuesday following her speech at the United Nations. Sources confirm former Sec of State Hillary Clinton will address the controversy over her private email use after a speech at the UN today. The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate ignored the issue at a forum Monday while fellow Democrats urged her to speak out and predicted she would about her decision to conduct...

    White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admits that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama did exchange emails while she was in the Obama administration. The president, I think as many people expected, did, over the course of his first several years in office, trade emails with his secretary of state, Earnest confirmed, but added that the number of emails they exchanged was not large.

    My experience at Ohio University offered me a first-hand glimpse into the mindset of anti-due process activists, and the subsequent media coverage has indicated a troubling willingness for misdirection.Austin Linfante, a reporter for the OU campus news site New Political, noted that the protesters furiously tweeted how the talk doubted that the justice system favored white men accused of rape over African American men accused of rape. Yet the only reference in the talk to the justice system was about the lacrosse case, an instance in which the accused people were white (and who clearly didnt receive preferential treatment). And...
