    President Joe Biden might think he is the president of "unity," but this is another high-pressure election year, and legal expert Alan Dershowitz on Newsmax predicts a "summer of violence," with more unconstitutional abuses of power and politicized justice in America. "I'm afraid we will have a summer of violence if the Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade, and we will see the Justice Department and this administration selectively enforcing the law," Dershowitz told "Saturday Agenda." "You won't find congressional committees controlled [by] Democrats evaluating whether there was incitement, whether by Black Lives Matter — or women's groups." Dershowitz denounced...

    The January 6 committee is facing pressure as details reveal it lied and altered evidence to favor Democrat's radical narrative of the Capitol Hill protests. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) called out the committee for changing text messages between him and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows during an interview on Fox News. A spokesperson admitted that the messages Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA.) showed during the hearings had been adjusted to support the idea that Meadows wanted former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election results. In a statement, the spokesperson confessed that “the Select Committee on Monday...

    Despite "fundamentally" disagreeing with the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol demonstrators over the 2020 presidential election, attorney Alan Dershowitz has taken one on as a client. Dershowitz will defend Brady Knowlton, 41, who’s facing five counts for entering the Capitol. "For me, it’s a simple one — I’m defending Brady’s First Amendment right to petition the government," Dershowitz told Newsmax on Friday from New York. "We’ve seen the video that shows he believed, and reasonably believed, he was welcomed to enter the Capitol as long as he did no damage and left when he was told to leave. He did that."...

    The arrest of Peter Navarro on an indictment charging him with contempt after refusing to comply with the House panel investing the Jan. 6, 2021 incidents at the U.S. Capitol sets a precedent that is "dangerous to democracy," Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said on Newsmax Saturday. "It's as if somebody was called to testify about what he told his priest or his doctor or his lawyer," Dershowitz said on Newsmax's "The Count," adding that Navarro was arrested after he said he would not cooperate because former President Donald Trump had initiated executive privilege. "He invokes the privilege and...

    Constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax on Friday that the Jan. 6 committee's public hearing on Thursday night was ''not a fair proceeding'' in that it was ''one-sided'' and ''unethical.'' ''Take, for example, President Trump's speech on Jan. 6,'' Dershowitz said on ''Spicer & Co.'' ''He said at the end of the speech he wanted people to show their voices patriotically and peacefully. ''They doctored the tape,'' he continued. ''They edited those words out. If a prosecutor ever did that, they'd be disbarred. You can't present part of the tape and deliberately omit the rest of the tape in...
  • Many see Democrat double standard on political violence when it comes to Jan. 6, Kavanaugh threat

    "I hate to say it, but it sure appears that they are willing to at least accept violence if it will meet the ends that they wish," Rep. Scott Perry said. During a tumultuous week, Democrats pressed hard during a prime time televised hearing to condemn the violence 18 months ago during the Jan. 6 riots while staying mostly muted on the arrest of an alleged assassin targeting conservative Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over abortion rights. The performance has many critics seeing a hypocritical double standard. Liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said Democrats' Jan. 6 hearings have been...

    On April 30, I submitted to the Harvard Crimson a detailed op-ed refuting its recently-published blood libel against Israel. Over the next several days, the Crimson first said they were “reviewing” my submission; then that they were “interested in running it;” and, on May 4, that they would run my piece “probably tonight,” promising to “reach out with edits later today if needed.” As a result of these assurances, I withdrew my op-ed from any other publications. Then, on May 4, they “decided not to publish” my piece, using the phony excuse of “very high number of submissions . ....

    Longtime liberal and legal expert Alan Dershowitz, also a Harvard scholar, has concluded that Ketanji Jackson, Joe Biden's nominee to the Supreme Court based on her qualifications of being black and a woman, was unprepared for her Senate confirmation hearing this week. Responding to questions, Jackson stumbled several times over issues that are key to some of the biggest issues in the nation right now. In an interview on "Just the News, Not Noise," Dershowitz said, "She wasn't as well prepared, for example, as the previous nominee Amy Coney Barrett, who knew her cases cold." He said he has concerns,...

    Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of former President Donald Trump, has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his ground-breaking work negotiating the Abraham Accords. Kushner worked on the Accords in his capacity as White House Senior Advisor, along with his deputy, Special Assistant to the President Avi Berkowitz, who was also included in the nomination. The nomination was submitted by U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.). The New York Post obtained a copy of the nomination, in which Zeldin wrote, “The Abraham Accords, signed in 2020, represent the most significant diplomatic breakthrough between Israel and Arab nations in decades.” Zeldin...

    "I hope you don't mind if I do this," he began. "The world is mourning Bishop Tutu, who just died the other day. Can I remind the world that although he did some good things, a lot of good things on apartheid, the man was a rampant anti-Semite and bigot?" Dershowitz went on to claim that Tutu had minimized the Holocaust and "compared Israel to Nazi Germany." Dershowitz told Newsweek his remarks stemmed from Tutu's "criticism of Jews." "He didn't talk about the Israel lobby, he talked about the Jewish lobby," Dershowitz said. "He minimized the suffering of Jews during...

    The Biden administration is seeking to radically narrow the boundaries of respectable American political thought. The administration has repeatedly issued statements and reports that could automatically castigate citizens who distrust the federal government. We may eventually learn that the new Biden guidelines spurred a vast increase in federal surveillance and other abuses against Americans who were guilty of nothing more than vigorous skepticism. Biden is Nixon on steroids The Biden team is expanding the federal Enemies List perhaps faster than any time since the Nixon administration. In June, the Biden administration asserted that guys who are unable to score with...

    "Trials and justice have ceased to be about individual justice," famed law professor says. "They're about identity politics." Alan Dershowitz, the famed law scholar and appellate lawyer, has a stark warning for judges, prosecutors and defense lawyers: America's justice system is being corrupted by identity politics and critical race theory. In an interview with Just the News, Dershowitz deplored the growing trend in recent criminal cases toward political agendas supplanting the neutral consideration of evidence and law that has been the lifeblood of U.S. jurisprudence for more than two centuries. "It's becoming much more responsive, unfortunately, to critical race theory,...

    Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz says Kyle Rittenhouse “should be acquitted” of killing two men and wounding a third during riots and protests last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and he should file defamation lawsuits against media outlets for claiming that he’s guilty of murder. “If I were a juror, I would vote that there was reasonable doubt [and] that he did act in self-defense,” Dershowitz told Newsmax on Nov. 13. Rittenhouse, if acquitted, should then “bring lawsuits” against corporate news outlets for articles claiming the teen engaged in “vigilante justice,” Dershowitz said. “It’s CNN who is involved in vigilante...

    Alan Dershowitz, an emeritus law professor at Harvard, is one of the greatest legal minds of our time, writing multiple books and publishing hundreds of articles about the law. He has been defending clients in courtrooms since the 1970s and argued numerous cases before the Supreme Court. He was also on the team that defended Donald Trump against impeachment. Alan Dershowitz believes that Alec Baldwin’s shooting of Halyna Hutchins could be considered a homicide. Gun safety protocols are so stringent that an accident of this kind is almost impossible. Armando Gutierrez recalls that on the set of Purge of Kingdoms,...

    Civil liberties legal expert Alan Dershowitz vowed on Newsmax to defend nonviolent protests at school board meetings after Biden administration Attorney General Merrick Garland mobilized the FBI and U.S. attorneys to "investigate and prosecute" school board protests. "I'll defend anybody who is chilled in their free speech," Dershowitz told "Saturday Report," denouncing the politicization of the ACLU. "Anybody who wants to protest at school boards and is going to do it nonviolently, can count on me.

    A lawsuit filed yesterday by aggrieved 2020 poll-watchers represented by Kurt Olsen, Dershowitz and others alleges that Dominion Voting Systems is a government entity and also did much RICO by sending cease-and-desist letters. Lawsuit asserts that 3rd party vendor Dominion was operating as the government itself. Dershowitz said in a brief interview that though he is not the lead attorney on this new class-action lawsuit, he described himself as an “adviser and consultant on the First Amendment issues of this case.” “I consider this a part of the bigger-picture efforts, that includes my consulting on Mike Lindell and MyPillow’s cases....

    State lawmakers and corporate attorneys have been chomping at the bit to take the Biden administration to court after the new vaccine mandates. Biden announced executive changes last week, which would reportedly affect 100 million Americans. ........................ “Already we’ve had companies and states indicate they are going to file suit. This is going to be a big payday for lawyers unfortunately, but it will get the case to court right away,” he stated. “I suspect that within a month, the Supreme Court will issue a preliminary decision on whether or not a president, as distinguished in Congress, can impose a...

    Courts will likely agree that the federal government has the authority to enforce COVID-19 vaccine mandates but will argue that the rules and penalties cannot be enforced, said Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz.President Joe Biden last week said that he will direct the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to mandate that employees at companies with 100 or more workers will have to either submit to weekly testing or get the COVID-19 vaccine. White House officials have said that fines will be handed down to those who don’t comply with the rule, which will impact about 80 million...

    Dershowitz said that David isn’t the only friend he’s lost — particularly after he defended Donald Trump over his first impeachment when the President was accused of trying to arrange a quid pro quo with the Ukrainian government. “That’s the price of principle,” he said. He later said that his “principles require” that he defend the Constitution, and that he felt that the first impeachment of Trump was unconstitutional. He told us that that’s why he removed his second t-shirt after the run-in to reveal the one that read “It’s the Constitution, Stupid!,” which he said his wife bought him...
