    The New York Times ^ | August 3, 2017 | Jonathan Martin and Michael D. Shear
    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...
  • With fifth judge confirmed, Trump outpaces Obama and Bush

    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 justice, we marched for the rights of the oppressed. We marched for the MPs in jail. We marched for the arrested journalists. 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...

    An attempted ISIS suicide bomber managed to successfully detonate his deadly load of explosives, but he did so at a very inopportune time that resulted in the death of himself as well as 12 comrades.

According to a report from IraqiNews.com: Baqubah (IraqiNews.com) An Islamic State suicide bomber’s belt exploded prematurely, accidently killing the militant and 12 other comrades in Diyala, according to a top police official. Diyala police chief Jassem al-Saadi said in a statement that twelve IS...

    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...

    Sgt. Miller is serving life in prison with the opportunity for parole in 2020. Sgt. Miller shot and killed an Afghan civilian following the civilian attempting to grab Sgt. Miller’s weapon during a period of intense questioning. The Afghan civilian was a suspected insurgent that was walking through Sgt. Miller’s “platoon defensive perimeter observing their defensive positions”. Following the shooting, Sgt. Miller’s unit was implicated in a complex attack and Afghan National Army fighters that were assigned to stay with the platoon disappeared prior to the onset of the firefight. They hid behind a building. Sgt. Miller was embroiled in...

    We heard quite a lot during Mr. Comey’s testimony to Congress on Thursday. But in what was yet another bombshell being downplayed by the mainstream media, we learned that President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to downplay the Hillary Clinton email investigation. During the Obama administration, the AG’s office became extremely politicized under Eric Holder and then Lynch. Trump’s justice department needs to be much less partisan. As the Daily Caller pointed out, Comey said Lynch told Comey not to call the criminal investigation into the Democratic nominee’s use of a server while secretary of state. Instead, Lynch...

    Forget Russia, CNN is stuck in Siberia. Reporter Jim Acosta made note of the fact that his network was relegated to the “Siberia” section of the Rose Garden during President Trump’s press conference with Romanian president Klaus Iohannis Friday, quickly adding, “no pun intended.” “The question has be to be raised whether or not this White House was retaliating against CNN,” Acosta later told Wolf Blitzer during an on-air crosstalk.

Compassion and understanding require it, justice and punishment demand it Terrorists, by their very namesake, want to invoke terror. Whether their acts are by individuals bent on inflicting harm for whatever reason or connected to, or at least inspired by, a particular ideology, it matters very little at this point. Either way, they wish to disrupt normalcy, creating chaos from order. Once again, the world has witnessed a terrorist attack that has done that exact thing. Once again, hollow rhetoric will echo forth calling for compassion...

    Subtitle: The Missing Preamble. In Part I we examined Justice from the standpoint of the Declaration of Independence, and concluded that no law or scotus opinion can be just if it violates Natural Law. Laws and scotus opinions which harm society violate Natural Law, the first of which is self-preservation, and are therefore unjust. Here, in Part II, from the same viewpoint of justice v. social justice, we will inspect the Preamble of our Constitution and scotus corruption of first principles. In the Preamble, We the People issued a mission statement, the reasons the demos of the United States joined...
