    Sidney Powell, a one-time attorney for former President Trump’s 2020 campaign who helped promulgate false claims of election fraud, has pleaded not guilty in the Georgia election interference case. Powell and 18 others including Trump are accused of joining a criminal conspiracy to keep Trump in power after he lost the 2020 presidential race by overturning the state’s election results. She faces seven charges, among them violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act — a charge designed to target organized crime of which all the defendants are accused. The Trump lawyer’s other charges stem from a Coffee County...

    Joy Behar said during Tuesday's episode of "The View" that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito not being able to leave his house easily because of the pro-choice protests happening outside his home might be a "good lesson" for him on "what it feels like to lose your freedom of choice." Guest host Alyssa Farah noted that she believed the protests occurring outside the houses of justices could be seen as "intimidation" and suggested the steps of the Supreme Court would be more appropriate. "I worry it could begin to look like intimidation when it's at someone’s doorstep," Farah said. "I...

    The Salvation Army ^ | Nov 25, 2021
    The holidays are a welcome reminder of the things we are grateful for—and for the power of service on behalf of those who are less fortunate. The Salvation Army mission statement clearly outlines the nature of our service: to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination. The beliefs that motivate our service are based solely on the Bible, and that will never change. But although we remain committed to serving everyone in need—regardless of their beliefs, backgrounds, or lifestyle—some individuals and groups have recently attempted to mislabel our organization to serve their...

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki seemed to admit late last week that, contrary to what actually happened, as far as President Joe Biden is concerned a “number” of U.S. Capitol Police officers died on the day of the Jan. 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol.She offered the unusual admission after being asked by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins to remark on an emotional letter recently written to all members of the U.S. government by a Capitol police officer who’d been injured during the riot.“I’m happy to check on the status of the letter. Obviously, the president’s view is that there are...

    During a week in which Democrats formally finalized their takeover of the US Senate's instruments of power, and flexed their legislative muscles by pushing through a party-line vote to pave the way for a massive spending bill, it seems like an opportune moment to reflect on how we got here. Republican voters largely held the line, despite a daunting Senate map, in November. After election night, it very much looked like Democrats would net just one single seat in the upper chamber, allowing Mitch McConnell to remain majority leader, and force the Biden administration into tough negotiations on a wide...

    Contrary to President Donald Trump's June claims, the coronavirus is not going away. Trump's coronavirus-related lying spree appears here to stay, too. The President's months-long bombardment of false and misleading claims about the virus and the pandemic, many of them egregious, continued from early June to early July -- a period that included his controversial rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a series of interviews with Fox News and other media outlets, events on the economy and the pandemic, and remarks in Texas, Arizona, Wisconsin and at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota........ And he falsely claimed nine times that he had banned...

Davis for the Department of Justice’s Civil Division.  “When skilled...

    The Department of Justice announced today that Bradken Inc. (Bradken) has paid $10,896,924 to resolve allegations that Bradken produced and sold substandard steel components for installation on U.S. Navy vessels.  The United States alleged that a Bradken employee knowingly falsified test results to conceal the fact that the components did not meet the Navy’s specifications.  “When government contractors supply our armed forces with equipment that fails to meet performance standards, they not only cheat taxpayers, they also potentially put our service members at risk,” said Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt for the Department of Justice’s Civil Division.  “Today’s settlement demonstrates...

    The United States filed a complaint under the False Claims Act against Mallinckrodt ARD LLC, formerly known as Mallinckrodt ARD Inc. and previously Questcor Pharmaceuticals Inc. (collectively, Mallinckrodt), in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, the Department of Justice announced today.  The government alleges that Mallinckrodt has violated the False Claims Act by knowingly underpaying Medicaid rebates due as a result of large increases in the price of its drug H.P. Acthar Gel (Acthar). “The Medicaid Rebate Statute provides an important check on rising drug prices,” said Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt of the Department of Justice’s...

    Responding to President Trump’s charge that the whistleblower complaint form had been altered to allow hearsay information, the inspector general for the intelligence community said in a statement late Monday that the whistleblower whose complaint ignited an impeachment inquiry claimed to have firsthand knowledge of misconduct by the president. But that claim appears to conflict with documents sent to Congress and the director of national intelligence, Fox News reported. The declassified whistleblower complaint sent to Congress last week stated: “I was not a direct witness to most of the events described. However, I found my colleagues’ accounts of these events...

    Seven months ago all the usual suspects on the left were very excited about this story. Trump gave a $25,000 donation to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi in 2013 and later she decided not to pursue an investigation of Trump University. A lawyer in Boston named J. Whitfield Larrabee filed a complaint last year alleging the donation was a bribe. Amira Fox, chief assistant attorney for the 20th Judicial Circuit, reviewed the claim and found it lacked anything approaching evidence. From the Associated Press: Amira Fox, the chief assistant state attorney, said in a memo about the case that the...

    PHILADELPHIA — The 2016 Democratic National Convention is underway, and the factual inaccuracies on the first night focused on income, college tuition and something the Republican ticket had said or done. Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump “would cut taxes for the richest Americans at the expense of the middle class.” But all income levels would get some tax relief under Trump’s plan. Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy wrongly claimed that Mike Pence, the GOP vice presidential nominee, “signed a law that would have forced women to hold funerals for fetuses.” The law said aborted or miscarried...

    Just because a person from a racial minority gets into a nasty argument over the provision of a service does not mean he has been discriminated against, the Ontario Divisional Court has ruled, in the case of a librarian who asked two black lawyers for identification in a courthouse library. The ruling on alleged racial profiling, rare because it does not involve police, clarifies that discrimination must be proven, not just assumed because the complainant is part of a minority. “A complainant cannot merely point to his or her membership in a racialized group and an unpleasant interaction to establish...

    BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (WXYZ) - In a bizarre twist, a warrant has been issued charging an African American student from Seaholm High School for making racial slurs and threats at the school. The warrant was signed Tuesday afternoon charging Courtney Isaiah Thomas with ethnic intimidation. Detective Al Smith appeared before Judge Kimberly Small in 48th District Court to swear to the details. He told Judge Small that the names of five African American students were written on the wall in a men's restroom. Det. Smith says a racial slur was written and the phrase: 'I'm going to kill them

    Unless you're in favor of a fully nationalized health-care system, the president's health-care reform law is a massive mistake. It will amplify all the big drivers of overconsumption and excessive pricing: "Why not, it's free?" reimbursement; "The more I do, the more I get" provider payment; and all the defensive medicine the trial bar's ingenuity can generate. All claims made for it were false. It will add trillions to the federal deficit. It will lead to a de facto government takeover of health care faster than most people realize, and as millions of Americans are added to the Medicaid rolls...

    When society tells a young person ---- in subtle or, often, not so subtle, ways ---- that they are less valuable, perhaps because of the color of their skin, their religious practices or the gender of the person they want to take to the prom, the whole society suffers. When we mandate that every young person must go to school, we must also provide the safety and dignity of an education free from harassment, discrimination and violence. That is why, over the last several years, I have authored several laws that strengthen civil rights protections for students and improve school...
