  • The Praetorian Guard within the U.S. Department of Justice

    When the Roman civil wars ended in 31 BC with the defeat of Antony and Cleopatra, Augustus Caesar consolidated his power in Rome through the use of an elite guard called the Praetorians, whose sole duty was to protect the Emperor. The special military unit did so with devastating efficiency through the use of force or subterfuge to quell civil disturbances and political intrigues. The Praetorians were particularly adept at eliminating any perceived threat to their own power, which turned out to be their primary mission. When the Roman Senate debated whether to restore the Republic after the lunatic Emperor...

    So my daughter came home from college a few weeks back saying they're teaching "White privilege, social justice, inequality and income inequality" at her college....a Christian college. There's a white privilege survey that she did, discussions on inequality, unfair advantages, etc--- I was appalled as was my daughter. However, she stood up in class calling out these lies and the teacher let her speak at the end to make her point but ran out of time. The "professor" said she could continue the next day---which she did, but there was a student that was brought into that particular class that's...

    "The congressman is making the case for the pardoning of ex-border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. In 2006, Ramos and Compean were convicted of shooting a drug smuggler. They thought he was armed and shot him as he fled. He later admitted to having smuggled several hundred pounds of marijuana, but both agents were fired and arrested on assault charges. President George W. Bush commuted both men's sentences in 2006, but their names are still listed under "convicted felon." Hunter sent President Trump a letter of urgency, hoping he will completely clear the agents' names.

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Gov. Jim Justice, who switched parties to become a Republican in early August, told a crowd of Republican lawmakers this week that he supports Democratic Senator Joe Manchin’s re-election to the U.S. Senate. Manchin, a former governor who has served in the U.S. Senate since 2010, is in what most political observers consider to be a hotly-contested election in 2018. Congressman Evan Jenkins and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey are running in the Republican primary. Governor Justice was speaking to Republicans on Monday evening at the state Culture Center. He addressed his desire to pass a multi-million...

    A German teenager who ran away to join ISIS may yet face the death penalty, Iraq's Prime Minister has warned. Linda Wenzel was dragged from the rubble in Mosul as Iraqi forces liberated the city in July and is now being held in Baghdad where her fate rests in the hands of the country's court system. The 16-year-old, who left her home in Pulsnitz, eastern Germany, last year to join the terror group, is desperate to return to Europe amid fears she could spend years in jail. But Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has now said Iraq's judiciary will decide...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Companies owned by Gov. Jim Justice and his family are being sued in federal court in Kentucky, accused of fraudulently transferring property to avoid responsibilities in a business deal that was the subject of a related lawsuit a few years ago. The lawsuit wants punitive damages of at least $16.9 million. “This agreement was an unlawful and corrupt agreement by the conspirators to accomplish an unlawful goal of fraudulently transferring or liquidating valuable real estate belonging to Justice Companies, so that plaintiffs could not collect on debts owed to them by Justice companies,” the lawsuit alleges. The...

    Washington Examiner ^ | September 5, 2017 | Timothy P. Carney
    Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey and his wealthy donor Salomon Melgen engaged in "a corrupt pact spanning seven years," federal prosecutors allege. It was a "bribery scheme," in which Menendez got campaign contributions, chartered flights, luxury accommodations, and more. In return, the senator allegedly took "official action advancing the South Florida eye doctor's personal whims and business interests." Menendez denies all these accusations, and in his defense he will argue that the hundreds of thousands in contributions and the millions worth of gifts he received, combined with the millions in taxpayer cash he tried to get for Melgen,...

    Gov. Jim Justice of West Virginia, a Democrat who was elected last year even as President Trump carried the state by 42 points, is expected to announce Thursday night at a rally with Mr. Trump that he is changing parties, according to three sources familiar with the plans. Speaking to reporters in the White House Thursday, Mr. Trump promised “a very big announcement” at a gathering in Huntington, W.V., that is expected to draw thousands of supporters from across Appalachia, a region that gave Mr. Trump some of the largest margins of his election. Mr. Justice, a billionaire coal and...

    President Trump may be facing a roadblock on the rest of his nominees but he’s outpacing his predecessors when it comes to getting federal judges confirmed after his fifth court pick was approved by the Senate on Tuesday. Alabama lawyer Kevin Christopher Newsom was confirmed to a seat on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on a 66-31 vote, with 16 Democrats joining the GOP. He’s the third circuit judge approved so far, and combined with one district judge and Supreme Court Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, it puts the president and the GOP-led Senate well ahead of pace. By...

    Given the bravery he showed in stepping out front as the first senator to endorse Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions deserves better from his boss than the Twitter-trashing he has lately received. The attorney general has not only been loyal to Trump and his agenda, he has the respect and affection of ex-colleagues in Congress and, more broadly, of populists and conservatives nationally. Trump's tweets about Sessions are only demoralizing his base. Yet the president is not wrong to be exasperated and enraged. A yearlong FBI investigation into Russian hacking has failed to produce a single indictment. Yet the president watches...
  • Jeff Sessions plans to announce criminal leak investigations in coming days: Report

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is pressing on with his job despite President Trump's public criticism of him, and plans to announce in coming days a number of criminal leak investigations, according to a report Tuesday night. The Washington Post says Sessions is preparing to announce a series of leak probes related to recent news accounts publishing "sensitive intelligence information." Earlier Tuesday, Trump said he is "disappointed" that Sessions hasn't been tougher on leaks from the intelligence community. "I want the attorney general to be much tougher on the leaks from intelligence agencies, which are leaking like rarely have they ever...

    In a Twin Cities appearance United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned that violent crimes and drug trafficking is on the rise in the nation, and called on prosecutors to aggressively battle street gangs. Sessions addressed hundreds of prosecutors from across the nation who gathered at the downtown Minneapolis Hilton Hotel for the National Association of District Attorneys annual meeting. "We can never cede a single neighborhood, or a block or a street corner to gangs and thugs," Sessions told the group, citing newspapers stories from Minneapolis. "Much of our rising murder rate is indeed, I am now convinced, a...

    Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the leader of Turkey's main opposition party, wrapped up his 25-day, 270-mile Justice March from Ankara to Istanbul last week and was greeted at a rally attended by more than a million people. Does the enormous support for the anti-authoritarian campaign indicate a turning tide in Turkish politics? The 25-day period was chosen deliberately to symbolize the prosecutors’ demand for a 25-year prison term for Enis Berberoglu, one of Kilicdaroglu's fellow members of the Republican People’s Party (CHP). Throughout the march, the most controversial issue was the reaction of members of two other opposition parties. One is the Nationalist Action Party (MHP), ultranationalists who...

We marched for the university academics dismissed from their jobs," said Kilicdaroglu. "We marched because the judiciary is under a political monopoly," he added. "We want the return of powers grabbed from the parliament," said Kilicdaroglu. "Who dares turn this country -- which is like heaven -- into a hell!" he added.

    Obama Administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch clarified her previous denial of communication with the Clinton campaign with a contention that "there was nothing improper about my assurances that I would not allow the probe into Secretary Clinton's emails to go too far. Should an AG allow any investigation to go too far? I think promising to prevent that investigation from going too far placed reasonable limits that helped avert a situation where Republicans would be able to gain an unfair advantage during the campaign." "As a matter of fact, it was FBI Director James Comey who decided not to forward...

    Beginning of the slow road to justice regarding the execution of a hero willing to stand up against federal tyranny LaVoy Finicum was shot at nine times by State Police and the FBI, and was left to die in the Oregon snow after the government targeted him, and executed him, without remorse, or due process, because he dared to stand up for property rights and against federal tyranny. After the assassination, there was no noise from the usual folks who demand social justice, and no effective finger-pointing at the one-sided nature of the shooting by law enforcement under the direction...

    SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – Just one question on a job application can make some people fifty percent less likely to get the position. Spartanburg City Council voted Monday night to ‘ban the box’ that asks people applying for a job with the city to identify if they’ve been convicted of a crime. People in support of this resolution say it’s just one step at the beginning of the application process that lets people be judged on their merits and not mistakes. “It removes some of that stigma and shame that people with convictions face when applying for a job,” said...
