  • Public Figures Exempt From Libel Laws Lead Ordinary Thugs into Prosecutable CRIME

    It's been so long since we could count on courts, DA's and the Attorney General to protect the little, non-elite people, our thinking cap might be a bit askew & in need of straightening out. After all, Frankfurt School Point 8 of 11 is 'An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime'. But it turns out, that while some public figures have limited immunity from libel laws when they're assassinating the President-Elect's character, the ordinary radicals who talk up trashing what's left of our country, are eminently prosecutable for their crimes. Hero Abbie Hoffman of the Chicago 7 On...

    The media was rife with 'I told you so' headlines yesterday, after reports from more unnamed sources said the first order of business for the Trump administration was to hold a summit with Vladimir Putin, in Iceland, just like Reagan did with Gorbachev, circa 1986. The headlines were smug and the Twitterati of newly born left wing militarist war mongers were resplendent with calls for martial law or protests or anything that could stop Donald Trump, an obvious traitor against America -- a revolting person of low qualities who enjoys to be urinated upon by Russian hookers.

    The FBI reported that the total number of homicides in 2015 was 15,696. Blacks were about 52 percent of homicide victims. That means about 8,100 black lives were ended violently, and over 90 percent of the time, the perpetrator was another black. Listening to the news media and the Black Lives Matter movement, one would think that black deaths at the hands of police are the major problem. It turns out that in 2015, police across the nation shot and killed 986 people. Of that number, 495 were white (50 percent), 258 were black (26 percent) and 172 Hispanic (17...

The AP reports today that the four suspects were charged with two separate hate crimes, one based on the victim’s race and the other based on his disability. Lawyers for the four suspects portrayed them as responsible adults and asked a judge to grant them bail so they could return home while they await trial. The Associated Press reports the...

He is being held in the Geary County jail in Junction City,...
