  • U.S. Appeals Court dismisses 2255 Habeas Corpus Actual Innocence and Fraud claims; unpublished short opinion as always, denies certificate of appealability – Justice for Brian D. Hill of USWGO Alternative News

    Justice for Brian D. Hill of USWGO Alternative News ^ | December 20, 2020 | Laurie Azgard
    by Laurie AzgardThe corrupt “United States Court of appeals for the Fourth Circuit” completely dismissed former USWGO alternative news reporter Brian D. Hill’s fraud upon the court ground and his actual innocence ground in his 2255 case under federal Writ of Habeas Corpus. It is a short memorandum opinion, then simply dismissed. No ruling on the actual merits, I do not believe that the corrupt “Fourth Circuit” is even reviewing over the evidence at all. The opinion being short for such a complex criminal case is very revealing that the Fourth Circuit federal court of appeals could care less about...

    As if we didn’t have enough reasons to hate 2020, the United Nations just offered one more. On Wednesday, the U.N. and the World Meteorological organization released a report on the “state of the climate” and – surprise, surprise – it looks bleak. The year from hell is on course to be the third warmest on record, viruses are jumping out of nature to attack us, and the world has already warmed 1.2 degrees Celsius since pre-industrial times. “To put it simply, the state of the planet is broken,” said U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres, in a speech at Columbia University....

    New York (CNN Business)Tyson Foods (TSN) is warning that "millions of pounds of meat" will disappear from the supply chain as the coronavirus pandemic pushes food processing plants to close, leading to product shortages in grocery stores across the country. "The food supply chain is breaking," wrote board chairman John Tyson in a full-page advertisement published Sunday in The New York Times, Washington Post and Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. US farmers don't have anywhere to sell their livestock, he said, adding that "millions of animals — chickens, pigs and cattle — will be depopulated because of the closure of our processing facilities."...
  • Former Director: FBI ‘Not a Broken Institution,’ Criticizing It Threatens ‘Rule of Law’

    Former CIA and FBI Director William Webster declared in an op-ed Monday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not a “broken institution” and criticizing it threatens the “rule of law,” in an attempt to quell public outcry over agents’ misconduct during the 2016 election.Webster’s full-throated defense of the two agencies comes amid the fallout from the Department of Justice Inspector General (IG) report, in which it was confirmed that FBI officials made 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in its submissions to the FISA court to obtain warrants to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page during the 2016 presidential election.“The...

    Joe Biden once again took the germ of a good idea — and botched it by reductioing his own absurdum. ABC News correspondent Linsey Davis challenged Biden on his criminal justice reform plans to release inmates convicted of drug use, referring to criticisms from Cory Booker that Biden’s plan won’t go far enough. Oh yeah, Biden seemed to say? He began expanding his vision of reform until it reached the stage where “nobody should be in jail for a nonviolent crime.”

    Broken Immigration Laws We hear this expression often and it is usually about people agreeing that somebody should correct the broken immigration laws but nobody does. The reason no one does is that the immigration laws are not broken; they are just not strictly enforced. Any act prohibited by legislation and not challenged doesn’t make the act legal. Who supports the narrative that a law not followed or enforced is broken? Some feel the immigration law is in need of “reform” to make what is currently illegal legal. President Trumps tends to oppose this position and I tend to agree...

    Yesterday I attempted to install the latest Windows Update, after my computer went rogue and started freezing, as it does every time I ignore the Update. It runs Vista because I've refused 8, 9 and 10. The Progress Bar spun at "Downloading" for over an hour. I got out and went looking for a solution. One that made sense was "Complete any other update then try again" so I did. The system was then stuck at "searching for updates" and would only last a few minutes before crashing. I got to the Microsoft site and found the correct update, 32...

  • NTSB: Recall system for defective tires is "broken"

    CBS News ^ | 10/27/15
    WASHINGTON -- Only about 1 in 5 defective tires is being removed from the road through the safety recall process, a federal accident investigations board said Tuesday. The recall system is "broken" because manufacturers are unable to contact most tire owners to warn them, according to a report from the National Transportation Safety Board. **SNIP** The problem is that there is no requirement for most tire dealers to register the tires they sell with the manufacturer, the board said. Most dealers don't take the time to do so, which makes it difficult for manufacturers to determine who owns the tires...

    Irish Times ^ | Sat, Sep 5, 2015, 01:00 | Paul Cullen
    Of the many places from which to observe the Irish health service, the flat of your back is one of the worst. Too often at this moment, when patients are at their most vulnerable, the system lets them down. It certainly failed Rose O’Halloran. The 101-year-old spent more than 24 hours trapped on a trolley at the Adelaide and Meath Hospital, in Tallaght, on the Monday of the June bank holiday. […] At least O’Halloran eventually got the treatment she needed. In Portlaoise and other towns, babies have been dying or suffering disablement in maternity units in circumstances that vary...

    So my Durango with the 4.7 that wouldn't start has a broken timing chain on the right cam. It only has 140k and I have had 318/360 trucks that went well over 300k before they had any problems; and I have NEVER had a timing chain break during normal operations. I have had Chryslers most of my life and the worst thing I had was a spun bearing on a one ton van (at 350k). Does anybody know if this motor has a reputation for weak timing chains? I know they have gasket and EGR problems.

    A potential showdown is looming over a pair of City Council proposals that would decriminalize a host of offenses — including fare-beating, drinking on the street and public urination — in an overhaul that could dramatically impact the NYPD’s “broken windows” approach to policing. The measures, still the focus of ongoing negotiations, could pit some Council members against Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, who raised questions about the potential changes just last month. City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito’s office is working on a proposal that would make some of the most common criminal court summonses civil charges instead. Violators would get...

    Immigration Law Is Broken? I wasn’t clear how I would ask this question because it can be misunderstood. Is it better to make this statement, The Immigration Law is Broken. Or Is it better to ask this question, Is the Immigration Law is Broken? I hear the president and others in government using the expression, immigration laws are broken and therefore in need of reform. Comprehensive reform as they express it. This creates a conundrum because when I read the law I don’t see anything broken. What does appear to be broken is the enforcement of the Immigration laws....

    On Sunday, I wrote an article about the GOP's poor messaging on the “war on women” narrative. I posted some comments from Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., who said GOP men need to bring their messages “down to a woman's level.” Ellmers called me a “liberal woman reporter” and said I had taken her quote “completely out of context.” Below are her full comments from the event Friday, along with the audio of her segment. I have bolded the comments I used in my original post. "And we are, I will tell you that definitely at chairing the Republican Women’s Policy...

    Susan Boyle revealed she has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. The Scottish singer who shot to worldwide fame in 2009 with her jaw-dropping performance on "Britain's Got Talent" was diagnosed last year, but has now decided to reveal her news publicly for the first time. Speaking to the Observer newspaper, Boyle said, "It was the wrong diagnosis when I was a kid. "I was told I had brain damage. I always knew it was an unfair label. Now I have a clearer understanding of what's wrong and I feel relieved and a bit more relaxed about myself." Asperger's has...

    Henry Kissinger’s recent statement, that in 10 years Israel will cease to exist, borders on senile. Although one of his staff members denied it, Cindy Adams from the New York Post insisted: “Reported to me, Henry Kissinger has stated - and I quote the statement word for word: ‘In 10 years, there will be no more Israel’”. Kissinger is a controversial figure. He can hardly be suspected of excessive sympathy for Israel. He perhaps, inclines to the “syndrome of self-hatred” so fashionable nowadays in the Jewish elite. At the same time, Kissinger is not an exalted pop-diva, cheap populist or...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says Washington "feels as broken as it did four years ago," when he took office. He's most frustrated by the inability "to change the atmosphere" in the capital "to reflect the decency and common sense of ordinary people" who want leaders to solve problems. He adds "there's enough blame to go around for that." Obama tells CBS' "Sunday Morning" that there's no doubt that he underestimated how much "politics trump problem-solving."

    A medical report compiled by the family physician of accused Trayvon Martin murderer George Zimmerman and obtained exclusively by ABC News found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a "closed fracture" of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he fatally shot Martin during an alleged altercation. Zimmerman faces a second degree murder charge for the Feb. 26 shooting that left the unarmed 17-year-old high school junior dead. Zimmerman has claimed self defense in what he described as a life and death struggle that Martin...

Her conception was a miracle surprise, and we've known from the start that God has a special purpose for her life.
