    Disclaimer: This shocking information was given to The Gateway Pundit this weekend. We decided to report this news and will post an update following Tuesday’s press conference. The Washington, D.C. lobbyist who has been on the hunt for Seth Rich’s killer found a “credible” witness who will identify the two men he believes murdered the DNC staffer. Jack Burkman, a Washington-based attorney and lobbyist who has worked with a private investigative team to solve the Seth Rich murder mystery, told The Gateway Pundit that the witness has conclusive evidence that will bring Rich’s killers to justice within a month. “We...
  • Mad Marc’s Case In Twin Peaks Comedy Of Errors (Waco)

    Quite simply, said Mr. Callahan, the indictments for rioting returned by a Grand Jury as a superseding count to the original complaint of two counts of engaging in organized criminal activity that took a back seat to what the lawyers laughingly called the “lesser-included” offenses of murder and aggravated assault, are as useless as Sam Goldwyn’s famous verbal agreement. All 155 original indictments have been dismissed except the remaining 25, who have been charged with riot, murder and riot, tampering with physical evidence, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. “The problem with the re-indictments is that the...

    The anxiety was etched across Marty Lewis' face as he emerged from the Waco Police Department. It was clear Lewis was uncomfortable being back in Waco. As he sat for a brief interview, one of the first things he said was that he wanted to get back on the road and out of town. Waco left him with bitterness, he said. It had to be something important to bring Lewis back to the city where the retired San Antonio police detective was arrested after a shootout between biker groups at a Twin Peaks restaurant in May 2015. The decorated former...

    Defense attorneys Casie Gotro and Clint Broden will receive top honors Thursday from the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association for their role in challenging the mass prosecution of bikers in the 2015 shootout at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco. Gotro and Broden will be named as the association’s Percy Foreman Lawyers of the Year at a banquet Thursday in San Antonio. Casie Gotro, of Houston, defended Jacob Carrizal last fall in the first and only Twin Peaks case that has gone to trial. The five-week trial of Carrizal, president of the Dallas chapter of the Bandidos, ended in a...

    McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna on Tuesday fired prosecutor Amanda Dillon, the last of Reyna’s remaining employees who provided information to the FBI during its investigation of Reyna. Dillon, who worked as an assistant district attorney for almost eight years, confirmed that Reyna and First Assistant District Attorney Robert Moody called her into Reyna’s office Tuesday afternoon and fired her. When she asked for grounds for the dismissal, Dillon said Reyna only responded, “It’s all documented.” Reyna then had Dillon escorted from the DA’s office by one of his investigators, she said. Reyna did not return the Tribune-Herald’s calls...

Those days are long gone. He says it’s the best thing that ever happened to him. Tomorrow, on Sunday, June 10, he and Gordon Harriman, a professional property manager whose great grandfather founded Crawford Austin, an operation that today owns “right at” 1,000 parcels of commercial property in the environs of Waco, Jerusalem-on-the-Brazos, will join us at RadioLegendary to rag chew the beaudacious efforts of the industrial establishment of this community to...

In the comment by Mark Derscheid, he may well have prophetically nailed the reason for the misinfomation and propaganda campaign that has followed the shooting. Ranging from a DPS bulletin four days after the shooting that stated matter of factly that the motorcycle clubs had declared war on the police "according to sources", to the blatant outright lies that Waco PD, DPS and their...

    New trial dates were set Thursday for six bikers in the Twin Peaks trial. Two of the six bikers, Richard Lockhart and Marcus Pilkington, did not show up. Lockhart did not attend due to his attorney being out of the country and Pilkington’s attorney recently filed a motion to quash and object his re-indictment. The trial dates are below: Reginald Whethers: Feb. 25, 2019 Marshall Mitchell: Feb. 25, 2019 Richard Cantu: March 25, 2019. A fourth biker who showed up, David Martinez asked for a trial date in April or May 2019. However, the judge has not decided if a...

    Two defense attorneys representing Twin Peaks defendant Marcus Pilkington filed a motion asking a McLennan County District Judge to dismiss the recent indictment against him for a riot on Monday. According to the motion to quash and objection to the amendment of the indictment, the McLennan County District Attorney's Office issued a new indictment that had the same cause number than the original indictment for engaging in an organized criminal activity. Defense Attorneys Paul Looney and Mark Thiessen said new charges require a new indictment and a new cause number. They said it did not happen in this case.

    HUACO – Owners of commercial and residential property in this city are facing across-the-board increases in assessed valuation declared by appraisers who offer no clear evidence to support their claims. The implications are clear. Taxing entities have mandated a new and onerous cost of doing business and cost of living for householders in support of a militarized civil police force that is heavily engaged in militant political enforcement. Through a clever set of interlocking directorates of taxing entities and their representation by board members of industrial corporations on the McLennan Appraisal District, the local council of governments in cooperation with...

    Two defendants in the Twin Peaks biker shootout who were re-indicted earlier this month on murder and riot charges might be tried together and had a priority trial date set Friday for Jan. 15. Jeff Battey, 53, of Ponder, and Ray Arnold Allen, 48, of Crum, both members of the Bandidos motorcycle group, were joined in Waco’s 19th State District Court on Friday by four other bikers who were re-indicted May 9 on new charges that will replace the original engaging in organized criminal activity charges. Judge Ralph Strother called the hearing to get updates on the pending cases. Of...

    The mass arrests of witnesses to the Twin Peaks Mass Murder in Waco three years ago was such an Assault on the ideal of justice that it is difficult to list all the villains. That has to be the reason the two judges who have “adjudicated” all the cases, 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother and Matt Johnson of the 54th District Court have generally escaped the contempt and animus they deserve. A recent federal case in New York illustrates what a real judge might say about an analogous arrest and detention. Suspicious Clothing A 16-year-old Honduran boy living in...

    By the evening of May 17, 2015, the bodies of nine dead bikers had been cleared from the parking lot of the Twin Peaks restaurant, and the Waco Police Department was working America’s deadliest episode of biker violence as a murder case. Police worked overtime at the crime scene processing evidence and collecting guns, knives, brass knuckles and a tomahawk, some of the weapons stashed in toilets, flower beds and restaurant kitchen cabinets. Across town at the Waco Convention Center that Sunday evening, more police were taking photos and fingerprints from bikers who had been bused from the restaurant with...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Several police officers have contacted Channel 9, upset about a tweet from Charlotte City Councilwoman Lawana Mayfield. The tweet was posted in March but it’s getting more attention during National Police Week. "Being black in America under number 45 has created homegrown terrorist wearing blue uniforms," the tweet read. The tweet was posted after an officer-involved shooting in Sacramento. An officer shot and killed an unarmed black man while responding to a call about break-ins. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department officers said the tweet from Mayfield was inappropriate, especially as they are asking the City Council for a pay...

    The only attorney truly “gagged” by court order during the continuing Twin Peaks saga other than prosecutors – in one case only – offered a third anniversary critique of the sorry performance by the State of Texas in this mass arrest that took place on May 17, 2015. F. Clinton Broden has been the second-most outspoken lawyer – right behind DA Abel Reyna, who was also precluded from speech about the cases of 155 indicted, but chose to blab every chance he got. He became a “necessary witness” when he personally took charge of a police investigation of just how...

Superintendent Michael Seabolt said it was reported that right before an Algebra I course exam last week, Kelley said in front of teachers and students, that “there were only a couple smart enough to pass it, anyway.” “You can think bad things about my kids, but I better never hear it,” Seabolt said. “I took it pretty seriously.” Following the results of...

    A funny thing happened to Abel Reyna, the elected Criminal District Attorney of McLennan County, as he made his way to earning a state retirement in a third term re-election bid in the midterm year of 2018. That’s the day in January, 2017, when a group of grizzled veteran bikers, the people who put him in office in the year of the Tea Party, 2010, got together following a session of the Confederation of Clubs and Independents for drinks in the bar at an Austin hotel and decided he had to go. A third term would mean he’d earned a...

    Eric Greitens was a Democrat. This must be understood if one is to make any sense out of what is happening in the Soros-funded coup in Missouri. The former Navy SEAL and head of a military charity came to his senses and switched parties, and after coming to the GOP he immediately ran for governor. Much like Donald Trump, Greitens had no political experience and was from outside the political power structure. Few thought he had a chance to win, but he did. A lot of people weren't happy about that. Greitens was very pro-police, something guaranteed to anger the...
