    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Gov. Jim Justice says he’s going to use the West Virginia National Guard to help Huntington respond to the current rash of violence that has resulted in a number of murders including three this week. Gov. Jim Justice talks with WSAZ-TV Anchor Amanda Barren. “I’m going to call upon our National Guard,” Justice said during a Thursday town hall meeting on WSAZ-TV in Huntington. “Our National Guard has resources that can absolutely combat this thing.” Justice said he couldn’t be specific but said the Guard would be working with other police agencies. “That doesn’t mean setting a...

    A co-founder of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS acknowledged in a new court document that his company hired the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help investigate then-candidate Donald Trump last year. The confirmation from Glenn Simpson came in a signed declaration filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., and provided a fuller picture of the nature of Nellie Ohr’s work – after Fox News first reported on her connection to Fusion GPS. Her husband, Bruce Ohr, was demoted at the DOJ last week for concealing his meetings with the same company, which commissioned the anti-Trump...

    When James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee, he would not actually say that he believed President Trump obstructed justice when he said he “hoped” the investigation of Michael Flynn would end. But Comey said he clearly believed Trump was trying to influence his decisions. Poor Comey said he was confused about why Trump really fired him.  He complained  "the administration chose to defame him and more importantly the FBI" by claiming that he had failed to be a competent leader.  In fact, Comey testified, Trump never suggested to him that his performance was anything but great. Comey said...

    More than 100 artists and academics call on the city of New York to censor public art memorializing figures they dislike. The petition sent to the Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art, Monuments, and Markers cited the Big Apple’s professed “tolerance and equity” in justifying the censorship. The signatories include members of the faculty of Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, as well as CUNY, Barnard, NYU, and other schools located in the city. The statues the group seeks to remove include ones of Christopher Columbus and Theodore Roosevelt.

    Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN) unveiled the Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians (SLAP) Act on Monday to impose huge fines and jail state and local politicians who obstruct American immigration law. “The American people are rightfully infuriated watching politicians put their open-borders ideology before the rule of law, and the safety of the people they represent. Politicians don’t get to pick and choose what laws to comply with. Americans are dying because politicians sworn to uphold the law refuse to do so,” Congressman Rokita said. “It’s time the federal government gets serious about enforcing immigration laws and holding politicians accountable who...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A company owned by Gov. Jim Justice and his family says it wanted to settle a $4 million debt by selling a helicopter, but the lender hasn’t been cooperating. James C. Companies, Justice Aviation — and the governor personally — were sued in the Southern District of New York in September over default on a loan for the companies’ private helicopter. A little more than $4 million is remaining on the loan. The plaintiff, Citizens Asset Finance, wants to foreclose and take back the helicopter. In an answer filed on Friday, lawyers for Justice and his companies...
  • Extremely Careless or Grossly Negligent – An FBI Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice?

    First, we learn that former FBI Director, James Comey, drafted an exoneration statement months before Hillary Clinton and other witnesses were interviewed, making the lengthy FBI investigation into the Clinton “matter” a complete farce. Next, we find out that Comey’s original draft included the words “grossly negligent” to describe Secretary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information. After reviewing the initial draft, one or more of his aides suggested that Comey change the words to “extremely careless” since the term “grossly negligent” are the exact words used in subsection 793(f) of the Espionage Act. After all, the art of the cover-up demands...

    The US government has created a business out of putting people in jail, a quite lucrative one at that. Privately run prisons thrive due to those minimum sentencing practices, while taxpayers pay for often disproportionately long prison times for people that are no immediate harm to anyone but themselves. And as a reaction those individuals are persecuted to the fullest extent, lives are being destroyed, and the nation’s workforce is diminished while the costs are paid by society. Instead of a helping hand, the U.S. has introduced the tradition of handing out handcuffs to those related to drugs. And that...

    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...

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.

    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,...
