  • Rand Paul Exposes the ‘Great Covid Cover-up’. Transparency around Covid and its possible origins continues to be an issue.

    In an explosive new op-ed, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) claimed that at least 15 separate federal agencies knew that attempts to create a COVID-19-like coronavirus were being undertaken at the Wuhan Institute of Virology as early as January 2018. Yet, heads of these agencies did not reveal this information to the public; for years, they actively refused to release information on the project to lawmakers such as Paul, who were attempting to provide congressional oversight. “For years, I have been fighting to obtain records from dozens of federal agencies relating to the origins of COVID-19 and the DEFUSE project,” wrote...

    Let me pose a difficult question: Who gets to determine who lives and who dies? Personally, I don’t think that any human has the right to do so. Human life is in the hands of God, and God only. But there are those who believe that people, specifically pregnant women, should be able to determine whether their unborn children deserve to live or not. As you all know, I am talking about genetic testing, specifically amniocentesis, and its link to a much greater problem, abortion. Ultimately, whenever a woman goes to a clinic for testing, she is considering aborting what...

    Apetition to have Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis disqualified from former President Donald Trump's election interference case has received more than 43,000 signatures. Willis found herself embroiled in a scandal pertaining to a romantic relationship she held with Nathan Wade, an outside attorney brought into her office to help conduct the Trump investigation. It was argued this relationship was improper and should disqualify Willis from continuing to lead the case. She was allowed to remain, but the decision is being appealed. "Now the case is being appealed, and we're taking action," the petition reads. "Our senior legal team –...
  • Trump’s Judges Aren’t Using Legal Reasoning, They’re following political instructions.

    American Thinker ^ | 04/06/2024 | Matthew G. Andersson
    Even if you don’t happen to be a lawyer, law professor or legal scholar, it isn’t hard to see a big problem with many of the published decisions made by judges who are hearing defense arguments and motions made by President Trump, in the continued “lawfare” cases being used by the DNC (not the United States) to persecute him financially, and block him politically. There are a number of these judicial positions that are out in the press. I’d like to focus on just one: the most recent case in Georgia involving free speech.I’m not going to write up a...
  • Trump Files Recusal Motion to Remove Judge Juan Merchan From Stormy Daniels ‘Hush Money’ Trial Over Daughter’s Democrat-Connected Work

    President Trump on Friday filed a motion requesting that the judge overseeing the Stormy Daniels ‘hush money’ case be recused because of his daughter’s political work. The judge’s daughter, Loren Merchan, is a far-left political operative who worked for the Biden-Harris campaign. The media has infantilized 34-year-old Loren Merchan in an effort to attack Trump’s First Amendment-protected speech. Loren Merchan’s firm, Authentic Campaigns, Inc., has received tens of millions of dollars from Democrats who want to take down Trump. According to The New York Post, Loren Merchan helped Democrats raise $93 million off of her father’s case.

    One of Donald Trump's co-defendants in his Georgia election interference case has threatened to launch legal action against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis if she "does not recuse herself from this case by noon on Monday." The Context Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has pleaded not guilty to a number of charges in Georgia over allegations he broke the law attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election result in the state. This is one of four criminal cases Trump is facing as he makes his bid for a second White House term. Trump has consistently denied all the...

    Fani Willis' reputation may be affected by her former special prosecutor Nathan Wade facing contempt of court allegations. In March, Wade resigned from Donald Trump's Georgia election interference case. Judge Scott McAfee had given Willis the option of removing herself or Wade following a hearing triggered by accusations by former Trump staffer and co-defendant Michael Roman that she was having an affair with Wade. Trump and 18 others are accused in an indictment of trying to overturn his 2020 election loss in Georgia. He has repeatedly asserted his innocent in the case. It was alleged that Willis and Wade had...

    Lara Merchan, the wife of the judge presiding over former President Donald Trump’s “hush money” case in Manhattan, once worked for New York Attorney General Letitia James, who brought the massive $350 million civil fraud case against the former president, with the revelation reviving claims of bias and calls for the judge’s recusal. Records reviewed by The Epoch Times show that Ms. Merchan worked for 21 years as a Special Assistant to the AG in New York, including three years under Ms. James. She changed jobs over two years ago.Ms. James is a Democrat who fixated on President Trump as...

    Jesse Watters ran a devastating segment last night on radical Judge Juan Merchan who silenced President Donald Trump from talking about his family’s financial ties to the current junk case he is presiding over against Donald Trump in New York City. Judge Merchan should be impeached for this lawlessness. This is peak corruption and cannot stand. Jesse Watters: Judge Juan Merchan, who is presiding over Trump’s so-called hush money case in New York, slapped an even bigger gag order on the former President last night. Trump is banned from talking about the judge’s family. Why? Because the judge’s family was...

    D.C. federal Judge Reggie Walton is facing an ethics complaint after he publicly voiced approval of New York Judge Juan Merchan's decision to issue a gag order on former President Donald Trump, who is set to go to trial in Manhattan this month on hush money charges. "Judge Walton must have known his interview was highly prejudicial to President Trump," the Article III Project, a conservative legal watchdog group, wrote in a complaint filed Tuesday with D.C. Court of Appeals Chief Judge Sri Srinivasan. Since airing last week, Walton's CNN interview has garnered millions of views, and with Trump set...

    In an appalling violation of the code of ethics, US District Judge Reggie Walton went on CNN to speak publicly about pending legal matters. Judge Walton, a Bush appointee, spoke with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins Thursday evening about threats he has received after he called Trump a “charlatan” and rendered excessive punishment to J6 defendants. “I’ve had more threats than what used to be the case,” the judge said referring to a January 6 case he oversaw. Even Kaitlan Collins conceded that it is “rare that we get to hear from a sitting federal judge." “I’m wondering, what made you speak...

    When and why did American life become so coarse, amoral and ungovernable? In his classic 1993 essay, “Defining Deviancy Down”, the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan offered a semantic explanation. He concluded that, as the amount of deviant behaviour increased beyond the levels the community can “afford to recognise”, we have been redefining deviancy so as to exempt conduct we used to stigmatise, while also quietly raising the “normal” level in categories where behaviour is now abnormal by any earlier standard. The reasons behind this, he said, were altruism, opportunism and denial — but the result was the same: an...

    One scarcely knows where to begin in documenting the errors, scandals, and misadventures of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal regime. The problem is, one scarcely knows where to end. The outrages just keep on coming. Advertisement Trudeau has come in for much caustic criticism of late, as a growing number of ordinary citizens and the independent media have expressed their justified suspicion and resentment of an overbearing and increasingly despotic administration. The issues at stake are features, not bugs. The list of noxious measures, lapses, and deeds that tarnish Trudeau’s record include: 1. the selling-out of Canada’s national identity 2. the daunting...

    Fani Willis and the Fulton County D.A.’s office now have a personal stake in prosecuting the defendants who exposed Willis’s affair.Fani Willis and the Fulton County district attorney’s office can remain in charge of the prosecution of Donald Trump and his Republican co-defendants so long as Willis’s former lover resigns, presiding Judge Scott McAfee ruled Friday. Within hours of the decision, Nathan Wade—now Willis’s ex—exited the case. While McAfee declared that half-measure solved the problem of an “appearance of impropriety,” the court’s reasoning established that true justice requires the removal of Willis and the entire Fulton County D.A.’s office.Judge McAfee’s...

    Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis may be able to stay on the Georgia case against former President Donald Trump after a decision by Judge Scott McAfee on a disqualification motion against her. But in the meantime, she seriously compromised herself and the case, given all that was revealed during the disqualification hearing. Willis is also now facing multiple investigations/inquiries including from the state bar of Georgia, the Georgia Senate and the House Judiciary Committee looking into the misuse of federal funds by Willis' office. The House Judiciary Committee is looking into whistleblower allegations from a former Willis employee who...

    After an enforced divorce that left former special prosecutor Nathan Wade out in the cold, former President Donald Trump celebrated the development. Wade’s resignation from the Fulton County, Georgia, prosecution of Trump and multiple co-defendants came after weeks of testimony indicating that Wade and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis had a romantic relationship that some witnesses said began before she hired him. “The Fani Willis lover, Mr. Nathan Wade Esq., has just resigned in disgrace, as per his and her reading of the Judge’s Order today,” Trump posted on Truth Social. Nathan was the “Special,” in more ways than...

    A special prosecutor who had a romantic relationship with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis formally withdrew Friday from the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump after a judge ruled one of them had to leave the case for it to move forward. Attorney Nathan Wade’s role in the prosecution had come under fire since an attorney representing one of Trump’s co-defendants alleged in early January that Wade and Willis were involved in an inappropriate relationship that resulted in Willis profiting improperly from the prosecution. Wade offered his resignation in a letter to Willis, saying he was...
