  • Prosecutors Ask Jurors To Dismiss George Floyd Autopsy Findings

    Jonathan Turley ^ | April 4, 2021 | Jonathan Turley
    I previously wrote that the key to conviction in the Derek Chauvin trial (and avoiding a cascading failure in all four cases) is the autopsy findings and the role of drugs (including fentanyl) in the body of George Floyd. Prosecutors are now asking the jury to effectively dismiss the findings of the only official autopsy in the case and insist, contrary to those findings, that Floyd died from asphyxia, or, lack of oxygen. Some new disclosures may make that claim more difficult for the prosecution. Last week, special prosecutor Jerry Blackwell admitted to jurors that Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner...

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1 JOHN 5:14

    It is not known if the snake had escaped or was abandonedA member of the public found an eight foot python slithering around in the Welsh countryside. The serpent, later identified as a reticulated python, was found on a farm near woodlands in Troedyrhiw, Merthyr Tydfil. The RSPCA is now appealing for information after it was handed into the charity's Merthyr clinic. It is not known if the python had escaped or was abandoned. It has now been transferred to a specialist keeper after the discovery where it will be kept if the owner isn’t found. As snakes are not...
  • Judge Reinstates Firearm Rights for Cowboys for Trump Leader Couy Griffin

    When Cowboys for Trump leader Couy Griffin was arrested for his alleged role in the riot at the U.S. Capitol, a federal judge revoked his right to have a firearm. However, on Wednesday a judge restored that right for Griffin with some limitations in place. Griffin, who is also a commissioner in Otero County, faces federal trespassing and disorderly conduct charges in connection to the breach of the U.S. Capitol. He was arrested back in January and held for weeks until a judge released him under the condition that he was not allowed to have any firearms. On Wednesday, Griffin...

    A week into the fiasco over Georgia's election law, most Americans want to know: just who are these woke CEOs listening to? Not to their shareholders, who can't make a profit when their companies alienate half of the country. Not to lawyers or legislators, who could set them straight on what the policy actually does. And certainly not to U.S. consumers, who are sending a resounding message that they're done with businesses who can't check their radicalism at the door long enough to read a 98-page piece of legislation. "It's insanity," Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) agreed on "Washington Watch." Like...

    The College Fix ^ | 04/03/2021 | Dave Huber
    Way back in 1959 legendary science fiction author and political libertarian Robert Heinlein was quite clairvoyant in predicting the demise of our culture due to misguided progressive policies and beliefs. Much of Troopers’ “future history” is told via high school teacher and former infantryman Colonel Jean DuBois to protagonist Juan Rico (by the way, how is that for diversity — a novel from the 1950s in which the main character is Filipino and whose family speaks Tagalog?). In one scene, students in DuBois’ class are horrified that children couldn’t play in city parks in the 20th and early 21st centuries...

    he 2021 Anthem Film Festival — the annual screening of the latest libertarian films and documentaries — will be held in the shadow of Mount Rushmore in Rapid City, South Dakota, July 21-24, 2021. It is part of the larger FreedomFest event. You may purchase registration here. The festival is currently seeking libertarian films for its 2021 event. “We seek movies and documentaries about self-reliance, innovation, entrepreneurship, individual rights, and the triumph of persuasion over force. Libertarian films often point out the unintended consequences of government intervention, but they’re just as likely to be about a protagonist’s personal struggle for...
  • Taiwan Says It Will Fight to the End If Attacked by the Communist Chinese Regime

    The Chinese regime sent more fighter jets into Taiwan’s air defense zone on April 7 in a stepped-up show of force around the island that Beijing claims as its own, as Taiwan’s foreign minister said it would fight to the end if the communist regime attacks. The democratic self-governed island has complained of repeated military activities by Beijing in recent months, with China’s air force making almost daily forays in Taiwan’s air defense identification zone. On April 5, the Chinese regime said an aircraft carrier group was operating close to the island. Taiwan’s defense ministry said 15 Chinese aircraft including...

    The world has averted a systemic debt crisis amid the pandemic. However, the poorest developing countries continue to face significant debt problems, raising global worries over multiplying debt traps by creditors like China. Addressing the rising risk of a systemic debt crisis in developing countries is one of the key themes at this week’s virtual spring meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Economists believe tackling debt vulnerabilities in poor nations is critical for preventing divergent recoveries around the world. Hence, IMF and World Bank officials are calling for extending debt relief for the most vulnerable...

    Iran knows they can do what they want with Obama/Biden in charge again. ..... Snip..... With Obama/Biden back in charge, Iran will do what it wants. Now with the help of the European Union, the US and Iran will hold indirect talks to get the Iran deal back on the table. Per ABC: The U.S. and Iran are holding indirect talks on Tuesday in what could be the first step toward reviving the 2015 deal that constrains Tehran’s nuclear facilities in exchange for sanctions relief. The meetings, hosted by the European Union, will work toward two separate agreements — on...

    It was said of the late actress Sylvia Miles, who spent her nights going from event to event in New York, that she would “attend the opening of an envelope.” US government virus guru Anthony Fauci has very little in common with Sylvia Miles: He wasn’t nominated twice for an Oscar, for example, and he has never, to my knowledge, appeared in the nude. But he has become as ubiquitous a public presence over the past year in all media as Miles was at every party. Every day, and it seems for hours a day, Fauci pops up on cable...

    Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan met with Chinese government officials in Alaska. On our own soil, they made it very plain that the U.S. officials should sit down and shut up. The Chinese pointed out that we have the Black Lives Matter, Antifa and riots going on in our country so we have no business saying anything about Hong Kong and their "treatment of their own people (Uyghurs)". With regard to the Uyghurs, Joe Biden said it is "just a cultural difference". That was helpful. Russia is watching all this along...

    VATICAN CITY (RNS) — Easter Vigil, when the Gospel readings tell of the discovery of Christ’s empty tomb, is one of the most dramatic liturgies on the Christian calendar, and Pope Francis used the service Saturday (April 3) to invite faithful to “begin anew” — follow Jesus by letting go of the nostalgia for the past. According to the Gospels, the women who had been following Christ before his death go to his sepulcher to find an angel who tells them that their leader “is going ahead of you to Galilee.” In his homily, Francis said going to Galilee means...

    The most insightful critics of Marxism said that socialism’s greatest failure comes not from economics but anthropology and theology. Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., put that reality on display on Easter Sunday, when he tweeted that collective social action “is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” On the holiest holiday on the liturgical calendar, Warnock wrote: The meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Whether you are Christian or not, through a commitment to helping others we are able to save ourselves.Warnock had previously asserted from the pulpit that “the early church was a...

    The Biden White House has released a preview of President Joe Biden's executive actions on gun control, which he plans to sign Thursday afternoon. The administration is also arguing additional gun control is needed to fight a "public health" crisis and pushing hard for "red flag laws," which often violate civil liberties. "Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing six initial actions to address the gun violence public health epidemic," the White House released late Wednesday. "This Administration will not wait for Congress to act to take its own steps." Here are the six actions, from the White House "fact sheet."...

    Apparently, no one is watching the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer on trial for the murder of George Floyd. Otherwise, the media couldn’t get away with their spectacular lying to the public about how the prosecution is killing it. It’s quite the opposite. In fact, in less than a week, the prosecution’s theory of the crime has subtly shifted from MURDER! to “failed to provide what we would say, in retrospect, would be a full and complete duty of care during the one- to three-minute interval between Floyd’s resisting the police to his dying, as a...

    Tensions are running high between guards and inmates at a D.C. jail housing many of the defendants in Jan. 6 cases, with at least one of those prisoners alleging that he was brutally beaten by correctional officers. For weeks, Capitol riot defendants being held in Washington have complained that they are locked in their cells with virtually no human contact for 23 hours a day. But a startling, graphic account offered publicly in court on Tuesday by one such inmate, Ronald Sandlin, went further: alleging that guards have subjected those charged in the Jan. 6 events to violence, threats and...

    Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, recently preached a sobering message suggesting that it may be too late for America to be saved because the nation is already under God's judgment. The popular preacher and author delivered the sermon, "Too Late for Grace: When a Nation Rejects God," to his congregation on Palm Sunday. MacArthur's primary text was from the Parable of the Vineyard Owner (Mark 12:1-12), where a vineyard owner allowed tenants to oversee his vineyard when he went to another country. The vineyard owner sent slaves to the tents to collect the vineyard's...
