    The former deputy director’s FBI coddled Clinton and addled Trump. Now he seeks clemency . . . even as he sues the Justice Department. Hillary Clinton checked every box for a violation of the Espionage Act. So much so that, in giving her a pass, the FBI figured it better couch her conduct as “extremely careless,” rather than “grossly negligent.” The latter description was stricken from an earlier draft of then-director James Comey’s remarks because it is, verbatim, the mental state the statute requires for a felony conviction. It wouldn’t do to have an “exoneration” statement read like a felony...
  • Vanity - thoughts on new criminal proceedings for mass shootings

    08/04/2019 8:33:16 PM PDT · by Treeless Branch · 43 replies
    There are never any discussions on how to prosecute these horrific crimes. How about this for a start? All thoughts are welcome. Any shootings with five or more people killed where there is evidence with NO reasonable doubt e.g. manifesto and video evidence, there will be a jury trial in federal court within six months of the murders. And then one and only one appeal directly to the US Supreme Court that is automatically moved to the top of the docket. The ruling on appeal must be issued within three months. If the verdict is upheld, automatic sentence of death...

    Obama administration weaponized government agencies for political purposes, abused their power, and misused the justice system Was anybody surprised when the Department of Justice announced they were not going to prosecute James Comey for leaking confidential documents? What was the underlying excuse for not prosecuting Comey? According to the Washington Examiner, “Justice Department prosecutors declined to go after Comey because of a lack of evidence Comey ‘intentionally’ violated the law….” That “intent” thing sure sounds familiar. Hillary broke the law and Comey refused to prosecute her because she didn’t intend to break the law. This time Comey broke the law...

    Massachusetts State Police are on the lookout for a man who reportedly flashed a woman while she was jogging on a public trail. The incident took place around 7:30 a.m. on July 18 along the Memorial Drive in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The suspect allegedly exposed himself the to victim who was running in the opposite direction, according to the press release. A video of the incident that was released by police shows the moments after the alleged flashing when two appear to exchange words as they pass one another, running in opposite directions. Seconds later, the victim turns around to confront...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden unveiled a plan on Tuesday to reform the U.S. criminal justice system by lowering incarceration rates, ending the federal death penalty and eliminating racial disparities in how people are sentenced. Biden, the Democratic front-runner in the party’s nominating contest to take on Republican President Donald Trump in next year’s election, has faced criticism over his support for a 1994 crime bill that some say contributed to mass incarceration, especially of black men. That bill, signed into law by former Democratic President Bill Clinton when Biden was a U.S. senator, greatly increased funding for the construction...

    A Georgia woman exhibited symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome last Monday after she drove off a highway road through a barbed wire fence to access and vandalize a Trump 2020 sign. The incident was caught on George Bentley’s security camera. Bentley, a Cobb County resident, told WSB-TV he took extra care to protect his property (and sign) and couldn’t find a good reason anyone would attempt to destroy his signpost. “It's a free country, and we love America, and we're happy with the guy that's in there now,” Bentley said. “We want him to be elected again in 2020, and...

    What happened to Christine Blasey-Ford? Nobody cares, now that Democrats lost the PR battle. As it turns out, Blasey-Ford is indeed a lying skank, as Kevin Jackson tweeted. If Fox News had any guts, they would apologize to Jackson and beg him to return to Fox Snooze. But when have you known Leftists to admit their mistakes? And Blasey-Ford was a mistake. A big mistake for Democrats. As Rush Limbaugh noted, her name should be Blasey-Fraud. The only good part of this story is that democrats failed to ruin Kavanaugh. But they should be held accountable for their willingness to...

    The American justice system works well. It does not work perfectly. Like a well running, expensive automobile, a single malfunctioning part can result in minor inconvenience or, sometimes, disaster. Our justice system has several defective parts in it. At the least, they undermine confidence in our system. At worst, they can ruin your life — yes, your life. They have been used against President Trump in an effort to destroy his effectiveness as president and even to seek his removal from office. A few recent cases, well publicized, have provided an oil dipstick by which we can measure the threat....

    Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 9:50 A. M., Tuesday, August 31, 1999. “They will kill four today,” one Saudi in the crowd said. “No, fifteen,” said another. “You’re all wrong,” said one of the dozens of soldiers deployed around the parking lot of the city’s central mosque where the executions take place. “They will kill eight. They killed eight last Tuesday, and two more on Friday. And today is Tuesday, and they will kill eight again.” The method of execution is decreed in the Qu’ ran: beheading by sword. Saudi Arabia is the only nation that regularly beheads offenders. The flag of...

    New York regulators asked an ethics panel to investigate potential conflicts of interest claims after the attorney general's office hired an attorney paid for by former mayor-turned-environmentalist billionaire Michael Bloomberg. The request was sent the same day that a government watchdog group filed an open records request about the hiring of two Bloomberg-funded attorneys into the attorney general's office. Bloomberg has turned his attention to environmental issues, gun control, and anti-tobacco regulations since leaving office. The former New York City mayor's most ambitious project has been funding the "State Energy and Environmental Impact Center" (SEEIC) at the New York University...

    Volodymyr Zhukovskyy is what happens when you stop enforcing all the laws, for all the people. If you tell one group of individuals that, for whatever reason, there are certain laws they no longer have to abide by, it’s not long before everybody else begins to believe that there’s no reason they should be held accountable for any crimes they commit either. Here’s the deal for any society: either all the laws have to be enforced for everybody, across the board, or pretty soon they’re not going to be enforced for anybody. The only alternative is to start repealing all...

After hearing the verdict, the Kealohas left the federal courthouse stone-faced. Katherine Kealoha, walking ahead of her husband, and her attorneys declined comment. Louis Katherine, appearing stunned at his incredible turn of fortunes, told reporters: "There's still a lot to take in. I just...

    In April, a Navy SEAL was rejected from a job in the Fire Department of New York because he was over the age requirement by about seven months, after public outrage, legislation has now been passed that will allow him to serve. Special Operations Chief Shaun Donovan, 37, will be able to serve with the FDNY if Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signs the legislation. The bill increases the window for military veterans by one year and was passed by the legislature Thursday.

    WASHINGTON – Kristine Lucius, executive vice president for policy and government affairs at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, issued the following statement on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote to advance the nomination of Daniel Bress (U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit). “Bress, a young conservative ideologue, is the third nominee to the Ninth Circuit to advance over the objection of both Ranking Member Feinstein and Senator Harris this year alone. This unravelling of a long-established process is part of Trump’s efforts to reshape the courts and, in particular, to remake the Ninth Circuit, which has...

The group is supporting immigration and human-rights attorney Jessica Cisneros in her attempt to unseat Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) in Texas’ 28th Congressional District. Cisneros formally launched her campaign on Thursday with a platform of ending family separation, Medicare for All, the Green New Deal and a rejection of all corporate PAC and lobbyist contributions. “Our congressman claims to be a Democrat, but he’s voted with Trump nearly 70 percent of the...

    For those who despair that the rule of law in America is being crushed by liberal fake news, we have encouraging news out of Ohio. A jury has ruled that Oberlin College, one of the nation's most left-wing institutions of higher learning, must pay the proprietors of Gibson's Bakery in Oberlin, Ohio, $11.2 million in damages for libel, slander and other disruptions that the college caused in the business by encouraging false charges of racism. The day after the 2016 presidential election, an Oberlin student entered Gibson's Bakery, near the college campus, and slipped a bottle of wine into his...

    LEWISBURG, W.Va. — A financial services company coming after Gov. Jim Justice personally for $2.79 million is asking the Greenbrier County sheriff to seize personal property and for Justice assets in a dozen banks to be checked. Meanwhile, a legal ad says the sheriff of Logan County has been authorized to sell shares of two Justice-owned companies to settle yet another debt in the court system. This has been quite a week for Governor Justice and his family’s vast holdings. Court cases, including some from afar, keep resulting in local law enforcement officers being asked to assess what personal property...
