    Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch announced that on August 8, 2017, D.C. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta ordered the State Department “to search the state.gov e-mail accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jacob Sullivan” for emails relating to the Benghazi scandal.   This is a major victory. The truth will prevail.Judicial Watch reports: Judge Mehta described Judicial Watch’s Clinton Benghazi FOIA lawsuit as “a far cry from a typical FOIA case. Secretary Clinton used a private e-mail server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State.” Further: [I]f an e-mail did...

    The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals' 2-1 decision said EPA does not have the authority to enact a 2015 rule-making ending the use of hydrofluorocarbons commonly found in spray cans, automobile air conditioners and refrigerators. The three-judge panel said that because HFCs are not ozone-depleting substances, the EPA could not use a section of the Clean Air Act targeting those chemicals to ban HFCs.

    'Nothing you did today even matters jihad will continue' The fact that the U.S. faces an enemy unlike any other, who defies conventional methods of deterrence, was illustrated Wednesday in a federal courtroom in Ohio. Terrence McNeil, 24, of Akron was standing before U.S. District Judge Dan Polster to receive his sentence on charges he threatened members of the military and their families in the name of ISIS. The judge issued a 20-year prison sentence, but McNeil defiantly told Polster it was of no concern to him, Cleveland.com reported. Nothing you did today even matters, McNeil said. Jihad will...

    On Tuesday, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida denied temporary restraining orders (TROs) sought by the ACLU, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and others. The plaintiffs were attempting to prevent the Presidential Commission on Election Integrity, of which I am Vice-Chair, from having its first meeting on Wednesday in Washington, D.C. Fortunately, the federal judges rejected the TRO requests. In a well-reasoned, 24-page opinion, the District of Columbia federal judge explained why the plaintiffs claims that the meeting would violate federal law were...

    A Parisian woman is taking the French state to court for failing to protect her health from the effects of air pollution. Clotilde Nonnez, a 56-year-old yoga teacher, says she has lived in the capital for 30 years and seen her health deteriorate. However, it became worse than ever when pollution in Paris hit record levels last December. Her lawyer says air pollution is causing 48,000 French deaths per year. "We are taking the state to task because we think the medical problems that pollution victims suffer are as a result of the authorities' lack of action in tackling air...

    With the news of Reality Winner being charged with accessing and leaking classified documents coming out, many are scouring her Social Media accounts for clues to her background and motives, but few are looking into what is happening with the news site she sent the leaked information to: The Intercept. Winner sent the Leaked info to the The Intercept, and a little bit of digging shows that it is not just a regular news site. It is more of an activist movement with associated film makers and projects on the go. When you go to the Donate page, you can...
  • What if Robert Bork was nominated to the High Court?

    06/05/2017 9:59:13 AM PDT · by Mafe · 30 replies
    With Trump asking the Supreme Court to uphold his travel ban, I know for certain that if the case is heard before Anthony Kennedy retires, the decision will be in his hands. Needless to say I am very doubtful that we I can count on Kennedy to uphold it. That made me think - how would the 21st century be different had Robert Bork been nominated to the Supreme Court instead of Kennedy? Its obvious that SSM never would have been legalized via the court, and Roe vs. Wade would've stood a good chance of being overturned. What other decisions...

    Intelligence agencies violated the constitutional rights of American citizens through illegal surveillance during the Obama administration, recently declassified documents from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) show. The secretive court also notes a change for the better under President Trumps team. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) authorizes two courts to provide judicial review for U.S. intelligence agencies when their activities require them to monitor people on U.S. soil. One is FISC, and the other is the court that hears appeals from FISC decisions, the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review (FISCR). The benches of FISC are comprised of...

    As Turkeys Council of State marked its 149th anniversary of its foundation this week, its president delivered a speech that left jaws among members of judiciary wide open, capturing the picture of how Turkeys top courts, high justice toed the line with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his government. The notion of separation of powers have become more clear with the April 16 referendum, said Council of State President Zerrin Gungor. Her remarks represented a complete break with the majority of legal experts and government critics in Turkey over what the referendum meant for the rule of law and separation...

    See you in the Supreme Court! President Donald Trump tweeted last week, responding to lower court holds on his national security policies. But is taking cases all the way to the highest court in the land a good idea? Artificial intelligence may soon have the answer. A new study shows that computers can do a better job than legal scholars at predicting Supreme Court decisions, even with less information. Several other studies have guessed at justices behavior with algorithms. A 2011 project, for example, used the votes of any eight justices from 1953 to 2004 to predict the vote of...

Busted as America’s STASI Chief running “Project Dragnet” espionage against Trump and millions of citizens, Obama cannot remain in the USA for fear of getting dragged into court. So instead of facing justice for treason, Obama grabs his Fake ID and flees halfway around the world to the remote island of Tahiti.  Like a Nazi hiding in Argentina, Obama won’t return until it’s safe....  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWCEFMDEWvI&feature=youtu.be

    Now that the judicial filibuster in the U.S. Senate has been nuked, its time to look at the political fallout going forward. And for Democrats, the news is all bad. Here are three reasons why Democrats just made a dumb mistake by filibustering Neil Gorsuch. 1. The GOP is now free to put real Scalia-Thomas types throughout the judiciary The argument for years as to why Republicans needed stealth Supreme Court candidates like David Souter, Anthony Kennedy, and John Roberts (who have all gone on to be disappointments to varying degrees) was the filibuster. However, now that its no longer...

    Senate Republicans deployed the so-called nuclear option Thursday afternoon in a bid to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, moving to overcome a Democratic filibuster just minutes earlier. The Senate initially voted 55-45 on a motion to end debate on Gorsuch, with four Democrats breaking ranks; it needed 60 to succeed. Known as a filibuster, this vote triggered Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to go nuclear. This means he is trying to change Senate precedent so that the Senate can move to a final roll call with just a simple majority of 51 votes, as opposed to 60....

    However, multiple reports have pointed out that Gorsuch and his wife attend St. John's, Boulder a liberal Episcopal church headed by a very liberal, pro-LGBT female rector named Rev. Susan Springer. Opposition to Gorsuch's affiliation with St. John's was voiced even before he was nominated. Christian conservative activist and lawyer Andy Schlafly, the son of the late pro-life leader Phyllis Schlafly, voiced his concern over the possible nomination of Gorsuch in an email sent in November with the subject line: "veto these Sup. Ct. nominee candidates." Schlafly wrote that Gorsuch "probably would NOT be pro-life on the Supreme Court"...
