    HARROWING Exclusive Audio: Listen to January 6 Detainees Sing the National Anthem Every Night Cruel and excessive. All those BLM/Antifa terrorists who looted, rioted and burned our cities are walking free and these patriots who were entrapped in Pelosi’s putsch are rotting in illegal incarceration. Amid reports of January 6 detainees being subject to torturous inhumane abuse including beatings, solitary confinement, and COVID-19 vaccination coercion in the D.C. Detention Center, audio released by American Greatness reveals the prisoners singing the Star-Spangled Banner in order to lift spirits and boost morale while they await their trials. [Quick note: Tech giants are...

    Due process of law, both procedurally and substantively, is a feature that makes American jurisprudence unique in this world. For people accused of wrongdoing, “due process” places the burden of proof on accusers. This means anyone who is accused of anything need not prove innocence; accusers must prove guilt beyond doubt. Moreover, they must employ fair means, including an absolute prohibition against coercing or conning the accused into assisting them. Due process makes it difficult – although still possible – to use legal and ethical codes to settle scores or eliminate rivals. This is especially true in politics. In fact,...
  • Bill Cosby is pursuing legal action against the state of Pennsylvania to recoup 'hundreds of thousands' of taxpayer dollars as compensation for his wrongful incarceration, friend and publicist reveals

    Bill Cosby's spokesman has said he hopes to recoup damages for wrongful incarceration from the state of Pennsylvania, and accused attorneys for the comedian's accusers of having 'an ax to grind against black men.' Cosby was released from prison on June 30 after serving two years behind bars, when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court vacated his 2018 conviction for sexual assault, citing violations of his due process rights. Now, his publicist Andrew Wyatt says that Cosby hopes to win 'a couple hundred grand' in compensation for the time he spend behind bars on the now-vacated conviction. 'We are looking at what...

    While Bill Cosby may have walked out of prison a free man yesterday, the courts saw to it that he endured two criminal trials and spent years in prison during his appeals.On June 30, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court tossed the criminal sexual assault conviction against Bill Cosby, concluding that the 2005 decision by District Attorney Bruce Castor not to prosecute Cosby for the alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand barred Pennsylvania from later charging Cosby with that crime. Given the avalanche of allegations that the former actor and comedian drugged and then sexually assaulted scores of young women, Wednesday’s decision...
  • Unless Checked, Judges’ Power to Unfairly Punish Could Be Used Against January 6th Defendants

    Most Americans understand that in our system of justice, a person is “innocent until proven guilty” and that someone cannot be punished if they are not guilty. Bedrock due process, right? Not necessarily. For years, many judges have punished individuals who appear before them even though they have been determined to be innocent. These judges, all of whom have taken an oath to uphold our Constitution, are basically thumbing their nose at jurors who had determined the government failed to meet its burden of “proof beyond a reasonable doubt.” Unfortunately, this practice has not been halted either by the U.S....

    On tonight’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the Fox News host referred to Americans being placed on the TSA’s No Fly List by the Biden administration only hours after America First commentator Nick Fuentes revealed that he was added to the list. “There are reports tonight that a number of American citizens including Americans who were at the Trump rally in January, the perfectly legal Trump rally in Washington in January, have been placed by this administration on the No Fly List, meaning they cannot fly domestically,” said Carlson, before noting that his team has not been able to independently...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | April 23, 2021 | Phillip Jackson and Justin Fenton
    The Maryland’s Attorney General’s Office said Friday it believes there should be a review of “in custody” death reports produced by the state’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner during the tenure of Dr. David Fowler, nine days after Fowler testified that an ex-Minneapolis police officer was not responsible for the death of George Floyd in police custody. The announcement came less than 24 hours after the attorney general’s office received a letter from the former medical examiner of Washington, D.C., Roger A. Mitchell, signed by 431 doctors from around the country, saying Fowler’s testimony and conclusions were so far...

    The trial of Derek Chauvin, the police officer accused of killing George Floyd, is entering its final moments. The jury will begin deliberating soon as the defense has finished its closing arguments. Whether they are able to return a verdict at all is a question we will eventually have an answer to.In all of this, one thing is supposed to be clear. The jurors are supposed to be able to do their duty without pressure and threat. Yet, CBS News has already begun the process of doxxing them, and it’s hard to overstate how dangerous this is..@jamieyuccas reports on the...

    Between July 2019 and June 2020, Nevada police reported seizing more than $4 million worth of personal property, ultimately holding on to more than $3 million worth of cash, vehicles and jewelry involved in criminal activity. Law enforcement agencies do this through a process called civil asset forfeiture, in which police take possession of ill-gotten money or property that may have been involved in a crime. The idea is to thwart criminal organizations and help fund police activity, but a broad range of interest groups have expressed concern in past years that the system easily leads to abuse and the...

    Captain America Civil War is an amazing super-hero movie. It is the model of how to have a large cast of characters in a film with action, humor, plot, and heart. The only thing it lacks is a Constitutional law. The gross civil rights violations are reason enough for Captain America to go rogue.
  • Before we Abolish Cuomo and Due Process, Turn #Metoo from a Monologue to a Dialogue

    04/09/2021 9:48:43 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | April 9, 2021 | Dr Warren Farrell
    Before we turn Andrew Cuomo from a national hero into an international outcast, let’s use the crisis to create an opportunity; replacing a #metoo monologue with a #metoo dialogue. #Metoo’s good news was that millions of women expressed feelings they had previously repressed. Heterosexual boys and men, who were biologically and socially programmed to protect women, increased their sensitivity to what had created trauma for their sisters, wives, daughters, mothers, and female friends. Many were appalled to hear how their sexual initiative-taking often felt oppressive to women and created traumas the women they loved had repressed. Virtually every heterosexual man...

    Townhall ^ | 03/22/2021 | Jason Garshfield
    Among the multiple allegations of sexual harassment against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, one of the more bizarre is that of Valerie Bauman, who claims that, when she was a 25-year-old reporter, then-attorney general Cuomo “made unwavering eye contact” with her during a press conference. After that, things got even worse: “He took my hand, entered my personal space and looked into my eyes as he announced, ‘Hello, I’m Andrew Cuomo.’” But the horrors that Ms. Bauman had to experience did not end there. Later, when covering the attorney general’s office, Cuomo “would sometimes pick up the phone himself,” and...

    It is plain to anyone with eyes to see that in this nation justice is not being equally applied. If people don't think this is a problem, they are part of it.Democrats’ calls for an indefinite commission to investigate the non-leftist Capitol riot should prepare you for another multi-year Russia collusion hoax-style narrative with intricate webs of players, evidence, and lies.One of the key facts in this accelerated use of police powers against Democrats’ political opposition is the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick. As Tristan Justice explained Monday, Democrats used Sicknick’s death in the aftermath of the riot...

    Where were the suits now pulling out of GOP donations when Democrats ignored due process in the 2018 Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings?As The Federalist has continued to expose, corporate America has a double standard for its PAC donations based on arbitrary and partisan distinctions. Since virtue-signaling multinational corporations claim to be so intent on rescinding campaign contribution dollars to the GOP to retaliate against members of Congress who did not vote to certify the 2020 presidential election, this presents a reciprocal question. Where were the suits when Democrats ignored due process in the 2018 Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings?...

    As the Senate launches its second impeachment trial of Donald Trump next week, its members must confront the deep unfairness of the proceedings. The Senate rashly claimed jurisdiction over a former president, fumbled on the selection of a presiding judge, and ignored the constitutional — not political — standards that should prevail. Further, it has given Trump’s depleted legal team little time or means to present a full defense — the only guarantee that the American people will accept the verdict as fair. Trump’s lawyers will have to accept these unfair conditions, though might conceivably be able to appeal directly...

    President Donald Trump did not commit any impeachable offenses, but the House violated the Constitution to suggest he did and are, ironically, immune from reprisals, according to constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz on Newsmax TV. "We are hear that the president is not above the law, but Congress is not above the law – when Congress impeached the president earlier this week, they committed six independent violations of the Constitution," Dershowitz told "Saturday Report." "They violated the free speech provision. They violated the impeachment criteria. They violated the bill of attainder. They violated due process, on and on and on."...

    Amendment V clearly states that “No person shall be...deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law...” Decades of illegal immigration, resulting anchor babies now of voting age, and further election fraud and malfeasance executed with the connivance of judges, elected public officials and slyly corrupt ballot handlers, even if it was undoubtedly not significant enough to hand the presidency to Biden, was undoubtedly a deeeply disturbing denial of the due process of law threatening to unleash a civil war. Millions of Americans strongly feel that vote counts ought to have been adjusted to offset election fraud and...

  • Trump's Pennsylvania complaint is brilliant: Here is a superb piece of legal craftsmanship

    American Thinker ^ | 11/12/2020 | James V. DeLong
    The complaint filed in Pennsylvania by the Trump campaign is a superb piece of legal craftsmanship. It was filed in federal court, not state.  The gist is that some of the state's actions, and particularly the exclusion of Republican poll-watchers during the counting of hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots, violated federal constitutional requirements. The point is obvious enough once one thinks of it, but it's brilliant all the same.  It shifts the focus from state law, where a politicized Pennsylvania court has the last word, to federal law, where the U.S. Supreme Court rules. As for the obviousness of the...
