  • Citigroup Cannot Recoup Revlon Payouts After Nearly $900 Million Gaffe: U.S. Judge

    Reuters ^ | 2/27/21 | Jonathan Stempel
    A federal judge on Tuesday said Citigroup Inc C.N is not entitled to recoup half a billion dollars of its own money that it mistakenly wired lenders of Revlon Inc, in what he called "a banking error of perhaps unprecedented nature and magnitude." U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan said the Aug. 11, 2020, transfers were “final and complete transactions, not subject to revocation.” Citigroup plans to appeal. “We believe we are entitled to the funds and will continue to pursue a complete recovery of them,” a spokeswoman said. The blunder was the latest misstep involving internal controls at...
  • After Trump, Democrats set out on a mission to 'repair the courts'

    WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden and Senate Democrats are vetting civil rights lawyers and public defenders to nominate as judges, embarking on a mission to shape the courts after Republicans overhauled them in the last four years, according to senior party officials and activists. They believe they have two years to make their mark and fill a growing number of vacancies before a midterm election where the party in power historically loses seats. Some are preparing for a Supreme Court retirement as early as this summer, with most of the speculation centered on 82-year-old Justice Stephen Breyer, a Democratic appointee....

    The Coming Assault on Religious FreedomModern-day Thomas Beckets are needed to stop it.Joe Biden’s view of religious freedom is exceedingly narrow. Where religious freedom conflicts with the goals of liberalism, he supports suppressing it. He has promised Planned Parenthood that he will resume the Obama-era harassment of the Little Sisters of the Poor and other religious groups if they don’t conform to his mandates. During the campaign, he opposed “broad exemptions” for those who resist his view of LGBTQ rights.One of Biden’s transition officials is Chai Feldblum, who has spoken openly of her opposition to religious freedom. She has written,...
  • Federal Court Rules Trump Can Bar Uninsured Immigrants From Entering United States

    A federal appeals court in California on Thursday ruled to lift a ban on President Donald Trump’s proclamation that blocks immigrants from entering the United States if they lack health insurance or the means to pay for hospital bills. In a Dec. 31 opinion (pdf), the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said that Trump acted within his authority when, in October 2019, he signed the Proclamation on the Suspension of Entry of Immigrants Who Will Financially Burden the United States Healthcare System. The ruling reverses a federal court decision to block the implementation of the president’s...

    The courts have spoken, one after another. Some 74 million Americans have been denied our day in court. The Democrats’ crime of stealing a presidential election is too big to fail. Our play-it-safe judges don’t want to venture into these enormous seas, full of sharks, without precedent. They want to say in the safe spaces of the familiar. Stealing an election for city council is familiar enough to be overturned by law. Stealing a presidential election by wholesale fraud is above the law. One might think that somehow our laws are written too narrowly to catch the whale of Democrat...

    The headlines all say Trump lost yet another case in Nevada. He didn't. The case in Nevada involves parties other than President Donald Trump, and presumably without his resources. However, the judge's decision is a useful insight into the hurdles that Trump and his supporters face on the way to the Supreme Court. It also reveals that Perkins Coie, the law firm that paid for the Steele Dossier, is involved in the post-election legal battles.On Friday, mainstream media headlines were exultant:Forbes: "Trump Campaign Has 'No Credible or Reliable Evidence' Proving Voter Fraud, Nevada Court Rules."ABC: "Biden win over Trump in...

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum does not have the authority to appoint someone to a state House seat won by a Republican candidate who died before the election, the North Dakota Supreme Court concluded Tuesday. The court, in a unanimous ruling, decided that Burgum “has not established a clear legal right” to appoint his preferred candidate.

    ALBANY — When Chesa Boudin was growing up, both his parents were serving long sentences in New York state prisons for their roles in a 1981 armored Brink’s truck robbery in Rockland County that left two Nyack police officers and a security guard dead. Family friend Jeff Jones brought the youngster on prison visits to see his father. Boudin was raised by adoptive parents and the boy left each prison encounter struggling to process feelings of sadness, anger and confusion over his powerlessness to change a criminal justice system that broke his family apart. “I had a lot of emotional...

    A federal judge ruled Friday that the head of the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM), which oversees Voice of America (VOA) and other networks, unconstitutionally interfered with the news service when he went after its journalists for alleged bias against President Trump, NPR reports. Five suspended officials from the USAGM sued CEO Michael Pack in early October, accusing him of violating the "firewall" that protects international broadcasters from political interference. The officials alleged that Pack and others investigated and punished journalists for negative stories about the president, as well as stories about now President-elect Joe Biden and the racial...

    Voter fraud occurred across the board in the 2020 election and in every functional area. But in the data is where we’re able to locate and quantify or estimate much of the amount of election fraud which occurred in the 2020 election.The 2020 election steal occurred in all areas. Before the election votes were mass-mailed and many of these votes we now are finding were illegitimate (i.e. dead people voting, etc…). Many other illegitimate votes came in after the election as those involved in the theft hurried to get enough votes counted to steal the election. Then the vote counting...

    Despite mainstream media's urgent demands for evidence of widespread election fraud, it will take time for the legal case to be "outcome determinative," according to a member of President Donald Trump's legal team Jordan Sekulow on Newsmax TV. "It's going to be a little bit of a slow process to get this into court, but then all the federal courts know they've got to do this rapidly," Sekulow, of the American Center for Law and Justice, told Tuesday's "Spicer & Co." "So, chill out. Take your time. Let us do our legal work, and then the courts are going to...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) tore into Justice Amy Coney Barrett for refusing to answer key political questions during her confirmation hearing. "When Sen. Feinstein (D-Calif) asked her whether she thought Medicare was constitutional she refused to say." Barrett's reply was that "it would be improper for a judge to respond to a hypothetical issue. The role of the courts is to deal with actual cases brought before it. The facts and circumstances of each case are what a court rules on. Without a specific case to adjudicate the courts are not empowered to make pronouncements on the legality of...

    President Trump’s campaign filed a new lawsuit on Monday against Pennsylvania’s secretary of state and seven counties. The suit is seeking an injunction prohibiting them from certifying the state’s results of the presidential election. Trump’s team filed the lawsuit in federal district court. It alleges that the commonwealth used an illegal “two-tiered” voting system that held voters to different standards depending on whether they voted by mail or in-person. Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro called the new lawsuit “meritless.” In a statement, Shapiro said: “This is the latest meritless lawsuit to challenge Pennsylvania’s election, which was overseen by bipartisan election...

    If 2020 stands, this is just the beginning, not the end of what the next generation of Democrats has planned. Understand that the next generation of the Democrat party has been raised on the idea that opposition to their ideas is illegitimate – it cannot be acknowledged or engaged. Opposition to “critical race theory” is racist. Opposition to mainstreaming LBGTQ lifestyle decisions is homophobic. Attaining the political power necessary to stamp out opposing views is a necessary step towards a fascist state that does not tolerate opposing views. Hiden Barris will be ineffectual from a legislative standpoint, and I expect...
