  • TRAVESTY! Pro-life activists ordered to pay Planned Parenthood over $1.2M for exposé on baby body parts scandal

    A federal judge has issued an order demanding that a group of pro-life activists who were behind a series of undercover videos taken at Planned Parenthood facilities and abortion conferences are liable for more than $1.2 million in damages. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick of the Northern District of California released an order Wednesday against individuals connected to the Center for Medical Progress. At issue was an Unfair Competition Law claim brought by Planned Parenthood and the plaintiffs California Business & Professions Code. Orrick ruled in favor of the claim, citing a jury verdict from last November that found...

    President Donald Trump’s scrutiny by Congress won’t end with his expected acquittal in the Senate. House Democrats have a list of inquiries they plan to pursue when the impeachment saga is over. “The investigations and oversight will continue,” said Representative Carolyn Maloney of New York, head of the Oversight and Reform Committee, the lead investigative panel in the House. “We’ve got several cases.” Democratic-led committees in the House will keep seeking a wide range of evidence and testimony as they look into Trump’s administration, his policies and his businesses and finances. They also plan to keep a focus on his...
  • Five Things No One Asked About the Impeachment — but Should Have

    The American Institute for Economic Research ^ | December 5, 2019 | Peter C. Earle
    The impeachment proceedings against President Trump have fueled all manner of conjecture regarding the proper discharge of foreign policy, hidden motives behind both Trump’s phone call and the ensuing investigation, and everything from the dead-cat bounce of the Mueller Report to the Kurdish policy shift. But there are a number of questions that, while they should be asked, haven’t been. (Obligatory disclaimer: None of these questions are intended to either excuse or indict the actions of Trump, the impeachment-hearing participants, or anyone else.) 1. Why is the U.S. giving $400 million to Ukraine, anyway? It makes little sense. Europe is...

    Hmmm. Interesting! Steve Forbes being interviewed on CNBC recently was asked about the possibility of President Trump being impeached. He said removal of Trump is “Not going to happen.” But after that he said something very interesting: "The thing to watch for is what Attorney General Barr is gonna be releasing in the next few weeks in terms of his investigations of what was happening with the CIA, the FBI, and certain White House officials leading up to the 2016 election and afterwards. A LOT OF BAD THINGS WERE DONE. . . . "

    A cozy alliance between insurers and law enforcement has turned the justice system into the industry’s hired gun and left innocent customers facing prison.... These tactics can be applied with impunity, thanks to legislation in all 50 states restricting the ability of customers to sue insurers for wrongly accusing them of fraud
  • Robert Mueller's Upside-Down Justice

    06/04/2019 6:02:01 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | June 4, 2019 | Cal Thomas
    It's a familiar quote from Charles Dickens' classic "Oliver Twist," but with special contemporary relevance in light of a statement last week by Special Counsel Robert Mueller: "'If the law supposes that,' said Mr. Bumble... 'the law is a ass -- a idiot.'" But it isn't so much that the law is fractured, rather it is practitioners who sometimes do it an injustice. In a statement at the Justice Department during which he resigned and announced the closing of his office, Mueller said this about indicted Russian hackers who attempted to influence the outcome of the 2016 election: "These indictments...

    Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy said the country's top cops handled their role in the 2016 presidential elections "pretty poorly" and says former FBI directors should keep their opinions on current investigations to themselves. "There's a lot that went on here that's very disturbing," McCarthy said on "Fox & Friends." "The bureau was thrust into the politics of the 2016 election whether they wanted to be or not because of the Hillary Clinton investigation, (which) was a criminal investigation that was going on right in the middle of the campaigns so there was no avoiding it. "The question is,...

    Despite the fact that the copy of the Special Counsel’s released to the public shows less than 10 percent was redacted and despite the fact that a completely unredacted copy is available for key members of Congress to read (an opportunity no Democrat has yet to seize), Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, demanded that Attorney General Barr turnover a completely unredacted copy or join him in petitioning the courts to void the law prohibiting grand jury testimony and classified information from being published. “Speaker Pelosi has already publicly characterized Barr as immoral, unethical, corrupt and unpatriotic,”...

    CNN ^ | March 24, 2019 | Katelyn Polantz, Erica Orden and Kara Scannell,
    As Robert Mueller exits stage left, the Justice Department will continue to pursue a handful of investigations—and potentially more prosecutions -- that began with or were bolstered by the special counsel's work. And a significant group of them still focus around President Donald Trump. The still-live investigations range from an expansive probe into the Trump inaugural committee, to various investigations relating to former top Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, to tips that stemmed from Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen's experience with Trump and his family's company. It's possible other investigations are being conducted quietly, as well.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) confirmed in a Friday statement that he has issued subpoenas for former FBI Director James Comey and former US Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The subpoenas came early, as they were previously expected on November 29 and December 5, as reported by CNN‘s Manu Raju. While Comey revealed his subpoena in a Thanksgiving tweet – stating he plans to resist a “closed door” testimony (during which confidential information could be discussed), Goodlatte’s confirmation is the first we have learned of Lynch’s order to appear. Comey was ordered to appear on December 3 at...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday took the extraordinary step of firing his embattled investigations commissioner, Mark G. Peters, the culmination of a fierce rivalry between the two powerful men. It was a rare and consequential action by a mayor to remove an investigations commissioner: The position is understood to come with a large degree of independence that allows impartial scrutiny of all areas of government, including the executive branch.

He’s even publicly outlined Trump investigations he wants to see other committees run, so we expect they’ll have very little on their agenda beyond that sort of political messaging,” a Republican HPSCI aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation Tuesday.

    Does it really? Naah, but it makes for a good sound bite the day after your political opponents finally get their hands on subpoena power. Donald Trump greeted the new House majority this morning by suggesting that he’d order investigations of House Democrats if they go overboard on oversight: If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level. Two can play that game!— Donald J. Trump...

    VATICAN CITY -- The Vatican ambassador who accused Pope Francis of rehabilitating a disgraced ex-American cardinal is doubling down on his claims, asserting that the "scourge of homosexuality" in the priesthood is responsible for sex abuse and that the Vatican is being hypocritical in refusing to acknowledge it. Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano issued a third instalment Friday in the war of words over the cover-up of ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

    Mystery surrounds Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russia and President Trump. Some think he is the ultimate professional, others that he is a Democrat lackey, still others maintain he is working on Trump’s side. We can see how he works if we look at how Mueller ran his second-most important investigation as FBI Director. In September of 2001, an entity began mailing anthrax through the US Postal system, hitting such prominent targets as NBC and Senator Daschle’s office. The terrorist attacks killed five and left others hospitalized. The world panicked.

    After 9/11, and not one American asked where the $30 billion in gold stolen was, or the missing $2.3 trillion the Pentagon didn’t find, theft of American taxdollars went up! Now the Pentagon can’t find over $ 9 trillion dollars and no one cares but Peoples Politician Trey Gowdy. Where would Americans be today if the theft of trillions from their nation never left? Congressman Trey Gowdy is upset that with countless agencies investigating waste, fraud, and abuse, there aren’t more criminal punishments. Trey Gowdy also asks about negligence, gross negligence, and criminal negligence numbers.

The disclosure shows that Mueller made just under $3.5 million through his work at the law firm that employed him prior to his appointment to serve as the special counsel investigating Russia’s election meddling.
