    During a recent rally in Pensacola President Trump remarked off-the-cuff: “we have a rigged system, we really do, we have a rigged system and we’re working hard to change it“. Against the backdrop of recent revelations with the stunning politicization of the FBI and DOJ, those words ring notes of truth, and also caution. Over the past two weeks we have seen releases from the DOJ Office of Inspector General that appear to be building toward a much more consequential outcome. The corruption is jaw-dropping. The very heart of the U.S. system of Law (DOJ) and Order (FBI) is now...

    A proposed law giving the government formal powers to send the military into the streets to fight crime in Mexico faces unified opposition from human rights groups and the United Nations. The “internal security” law currently before Mexico’s Senate passed the lower house of Congress last month, pushed through by President Enrique Peña Nieto’s ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) party. In a statement opposing the proposed law, U.N. human rights commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said the Mexican government has been using the military to fight organized crime and drug cartels for the past decade, but without success. “Violence has...

    Sometimes a ‘Conspiracy Theory’ is not just a theory… Department of Justice Assoc. Deputy Attorney General Bruce G Ohr was demoted because he had working relationships with dossier author Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS; and -more importantly or perhaps ‘conveniently’- according to James Rosen, Bruce Ohr did not reveal his October 2016 contacts with MI6 agent Steele or Glenn Simpson (Fusion-GPS) to DOJ leadership. However, the ongoing Dossier story gets far more intriguing as it is now discovered that Bruce G Ohr’s wife, Nellie H. Ohr, actually worked for Fusion GPS and likely helped guide/script the Russian Dossier. (Link) Contacted...

    The government’s efforts to deport 92 Somali nationals — including some who lived in Georgia and Minnesota — did not go as planned this week, when the flight encountered some snags in Senegal and returned to the U.S. with all on board. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released statement Saturday, saying relief flight crew members were “unable to get sufficient rest due to issues with their hotel in Dakar.” “The aircraft, including the detainees and crew on board, remained parked at the airport to allow the relief crew time to rest,” ICE said in its statement. “During this time, the...

    Chicago woman who live-streamed video of the racially charged beating of a teen with mental disabilities pleaded guilty Friday to a hate crime and was sentenced to four years of probation. Brittany Covington, 19, has been in custody since her arrest in January. Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks banned Covington from social media over the four years, prohibited her from contact with two of her co-defendants and ordered her to do 200 hours of community service. The 19-year-old also pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and intimidation charges. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped additional charges, including kidnapping....

    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:...

    For weeks, Sydney Loofe’s last Tinder date has proclaimed innocence to pretty much anybody who would listen. Yes, Bailey Boswell said, the two women had swiped right on the dating app and met up. Yes, they had driven around the Lincoln, Neb., area getting acquainted and high at the same time. Yes, Loofe had been to her house. But Boswell claimed the last time they saw each other, Loofe was safe and alive, headed into a friend’s house a week before Thanksgiving. Most important, Boswell said, the claims that people had been making about foul play after the two women...

    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...

    FRANKFURT, Germany — The special counsel Robert Mueller has asked Deutsche Bank to share data on accounts held by President Donald Trump and his family, a person close to the matter said on Tuesday. Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from Mueller several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, the person added, confirming a report by the German daily Handelsblatt published on Tuesday. Deutsche Bank, which has loaned the Trump Organization millions of dollars for real-estate ventures, said it would not comment on any of its clients. Deutsche Bank rejected demands in June by House...

    Philadelphia City Councilwoman Cindy Bass is pushing an ordinance that would bar retailers from having bullet-proof glass block customers' access to store employees. The glass is common in convenience markets that serve high-crime sectors of the city. "Bullet-proof glass is an insult to minorities," Bass contends. "Lots of businesses in these same neighborhoods—barber shops and bars, for example—don't have these barriers. That's the neighborly way to run a business. If these convenience markets aren't going to be neighborly voluntarily we need to have a law that forces them." Rich Kim, whose family has owned a deli in the city for...

    When it comes to “leadership”, Barack Obama knows what he’s talking about. (We know you can feel the sarcasm dripping off of those words, right?) After his eight year party-on-the-White House lawn, Obama is still jet-setting around the world and offering up his take on our current administration. BHO flew to Paris to speak at an invitation-only event organized by a network of communications professionals known as the Napoleons. He lunched with President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee palace. And although Obama did not mention President Donald Trump by name (of course, he wouldn’t dare sully his tongue), who announced...

    <p>One way to stop injustices like the acquittal of Kate Steinle's killer is for Congress to make violent acts committed by illegal aliens federal crimes, which would empower the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute them in federal court.</p> <p>Millions of Americans are outraged that a local jury refused to convict Jose Zarate for killing young Kate Steinle. Some question the effectiveness of the county prosecutor. All Zarate was convicted of was illegally possessing a firearm. Zarate was charged and prosecuted under California state law.</p>
