    An Indian state has approved the death penalty for paedophiles who rape girls younger than 12. A bill titled 'the punishment method' unanimously passed the Madhya Pradesh assembly on Monday. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan declared: 'People who rape 12-year-old girls are not human, they are demons. They do not have the right to live.' He added: 'There are people in society who can be set right only by severe punishments. [The bill] will deal with them. We will also raise awareness in society against such crimes.'

    During the December 4 airing of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson asked gun control proponent Mark Glaze if he was ready for the civil war that would follow any real attempt to confiscate firearms in the U.S. Glaze is the former head of Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety. Carlson’s comments came after Glaze bounced from one gun control idea to another, grasping to find one he could justify. His ideas ranged from background checks–which we already have–to all-out bans on certain categories of firearms. Carlson seized on the push to ban certain firearms and said, “You’re saying ban a class...

    While much of the country’s attention was focused on the astonishing acquittal of Kate Steinle’s killer in San Francisco, another illegal immigrant accused of horrendous crimes was being held accountable for them farther up the coast in Portland, Oregon. According to the New York Post, a Mexican national with a criminal record and series of prior deportations and re-entries named Sergio Jose Martinez was sentenced to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple counts including assault, burglary, kidnapping, sexual abuse, sodomy, and rape. He remained incredibly defiant and showed no remorse while receiving his sentence. During the sentencing...

    President Donald Trump’s base of supporters wants the federal government to shut down unless a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is constructed as promised. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll shows that roughly 43 percent of Republican voters say they would like to see the GOP-led Congress stand firm on the border wall by shutting down the government unless the project is fully funded so that it can be quickly constructed. Americans were promised at Trump’s swearing-in that a border wall would be constructed on the southern border to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking by a number of Mexican cartels....

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Mazie Hirono (D-HI), who called for Senator Al Franken (D-MN) to resign, stated she would “love it” if President Trump and Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore stepped down. Hirono said, “I would love it if both of them stepped aside. Because I have said publicly that President Trump has admitted to being a sexual predator. And as for Roy Moore, the credible allegations of him being a child molester basically should cause both of them to look at themselves and step down. I would love it. But at the same time, you...

    Supporters of Ukraine’s top opposition politician clashed Wednesday with police who tried to arrest him for a second time at a tent camp outside the parliament building in Kiev. Ukrainian authorities accuse Mikheil Saakashvili, Georgia’s (fugitive) former president and now an anti-corruption crusader in Ukraine, of colluding with Ukrainian businessmen to topple (corrupt) President Petro Poroshenko. Saakashvili said he will not turn himself in, though prosecutors were welcome to see him at the camp outside the Supreme Rada where about 100 supporters gathered.

    A criminal justice system that operates in the dark is arbitrary, unjust and criminal. In Oklahoma this year, a Kafkaesque set of sealed motions, secret orders and closed-door hearings completely shut out a criminal defendant, his public defenders and the public. A trial judge served as handmaiden for the prosecutors, even failing to notify the defendant and his lawyers of the kangaroo court proceedings until after they had occurred. The defendant, who is appealing his convictions and maintains his complete and actual innocence, was denied an opportunity to challenge the state's legal arguments for hiding information about a crime lab...

    Back in September, a strange mystery was unfolding in Cuba. American officials and their spouses were experiencing some kind of attack, but nobody was really sure what was going on. People experienced a wide range of symptoms, from headaches and difficulty concentrating to hearing loss and brain damage. Many reported hearing high-pitched, painful noises prior to experiencing the symptoms. Medical experts have been unable to explain what kind of weapon is affecting these officials, or even what’s wrong with them. But new results from doctors at the University of Miami and the University of Pennsylvania have provided a valuable clue:...

    Democratic councilwoman says the safety measure relied on in low-income neighborhoods hurts shoppers' feelings. Philadelphia is one step closer to getting rid of bulletproof glass in many of its small businesses as part of a larger effort to crack down on loitering, public urination and potential drug sales -- but it's triggered backlash from the shopkeepers.

    The Daily Caller ^ | 12/6/17 | Kevin Daley
    The U.S. Supreme Court appears somewhat irritated with federal courts that have repeatedly barred the Trump administration from enforcing immigration policies halting the entry of certain classes of migrants and refugees. The high court’s latest orders sent three clear signals to lower courts, all of which are positive signs for President Donald Trump. First, the Supreme Court is quite clearly expressing its view that the government will prevail on the merits of this dispute. The Court would not grant an application with these facts if a majority of the justices did not believe the administration will ultimately be vindicated. As...

    TITLE SHOULD BE: DEMS READY TO SHUT DOWN US GOVT UNLESS DREAMERS ARE LEGALIZED. The threat of a government shutdown has put Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) in a tricky political situation. Schumer has kept his caucus unified against President Trump’s major legislative drives on ObamaCare and tax reform, but he faces a more divided group of Democrats when it comes to protecting young immigrants who could face deportation next year. The internal debate has more to do with legislative strategy than the underlining issue. Democrats generally back a legislative fix that would allow so-called Dreamers brought to the...

    Six Republican members of Congress held a press conference today and called for an investigation of the FBI's policies in applying "special" treatment to some of its investigations, including that of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her use of a personal computer server and her deletion of thousands of government emails. The congressmen, in a statement, noted former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe's remarks that the bureau's investigation of Clinton's misuse of a personal email server was "referred to as 'special'" and that "the decision was made to investigate it at HQ with a small team." At the...

    Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill ... The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was inserted in the bill, which passed on a partisan vote. All the Democrats voted for it. ... The power invested in the director of the CFPB was, and still is, unencumbered by any limiting authority of those elected to govern. He is a person who under Dodd-Frank answers to no-one. His agency receives its funding without any limitation or congressional oversight, as it has a “put” to the unlimited resources of the Federal Reserve rather than the congressionally-appropriated budget. The director of the bureau is essentially an unelected,...

    It’s been a long time coming, but the bill is coming due for the hip and progressive sexual revolution in America. The sexual abuse and harassment sweepstakes we are witnessing today is the direct result of our society deciding that Christian morality is narrow, repressive, and above all, not cool. If it feels good do it. Have whatever sexual relationships you want, when you want, with whoever you want. That is and has been the prevailing societal view for decades, and it permeates our music, art, film, literature, social media, and conversations. There is nothing right or wrong. Oh, sure,...

According to the release, the office headed by John Merrill required “several intense discussions,” but resulted in Google removing the ad. “Secretary Merrill’s team contacted the Media and Advertising team at Google (YouTube’s parent company) and through several intense discussions and many references to Alabama State Law the team at Google felt the ad should be “disapproved” and that it was in violation of the...

    Harvey Weinstein built his complicity machine out of the witting, the unwitting and those in between. He commanded enablers, silencers and spies, warning others who discovered his secrets to say nothing. He courted those who could provide the money or prestige to enhance his reputation as well as his power to intimidate. In the weeks and months before allegations of his methodical abuse of women were exposed in October, Mr. Weinstein, the Hollywood producer, pulled on all the levers of his carefully constructed apparatus. He gathered ammunition, sometimes helped by the editor of The National Enquirer, who had dispatched reporters...

    New documents obtained by government watchdog Judicial Watch show a top DOJ prosecutor, who is now working as a deputy on Special Counsel Bob Mueller's investigation, cheered the decision by former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates to defy orders and refusal to enforce President Trump's first travel ban in January. Yates was the acting attorney general at the time and was promptly fired for her defiance. Emails show Andrew Weissmann, who served as chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section under President Obama, loved Yates' refusal to implement the ban. “I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you...

    Several major news organizations were forced to provide corrections or clarifications on stories that initially claimed investigators had subpoenaed Donald Trump’s financial records from a German bank. After an initial report about a subpoena from the German daily Handlesblatt, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal and other news outlets reported that Deutsche Bank had received a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller targeting Trump and his family’s bank records. Those reports were disputed by White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Trump’s personal lawyer. “We confirmed that the news reports that the special counsel had subpoenaed financial records related to the...
