  • How the US Justice System Can Put You in Jail Forever...When You're Innocent

    The American justice system works well. It does not work perfectly. Like a well running, expensive automobile, a single malfunctioning part can result in minor inconvenience or, sometimes, disaster. Our justice system has several defective parts in it. At the least, they undermine confidence in our system. At worst, they can ruin your life — yes, your life. They have been used against President Trump in an effort to destroy his effectiveness as president and even to seek his removal from office. A few recent cases, well publicized, have provided an oil dipstick by which we can measure the threat....

    Today, in the whacko world of Colin ( take a knee) Kaepernick , Nike's anti-social marketing, and the puling left of the Dem Party,take a moment to get the straight shot on the Pledge of Allegiance from Red Skelton, addressing students and young people on his show: "14 January 1969. Famous American comedian, Red Skelton, explains the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, word-by-word, from a memorized lecture given to him by his 7th grade school teacher, Mr. Lasswell"

    Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 9:50 A. M., Tuesday, August 31, 1999. “They will kill four today,” one Saudi in the crowd said. “No, fifteen,” said another. “You’re all wrong,” said one of the dozens of soldiers deployed around the parking lot of the city’s central mosque where the executions take place. “They will kill eight. They killed eight last Tuesday, and two more on Friday. And today is Tuesday, and they will kill eight again.” The method of execution is decreed in the Qu’ ran: beheading by sword. Saudi Arabia is the only nation that regularly beheads offenders. The flag of...

    New York regulators asked an ethics panel to investigate potential conflicts of interest claims after the attorney general's office hired an attorney paid for by former mayor-turned-environmentalist billionaire Michael Bloomberg. The request was sent the same day that a government watchdog group filed an open records request about the hiring of two Bloomberg-funded attorneys into the attorney general's office. Bloomberg has turned his attention to environmental issues, gun control, and anti-tobacco regulations since leaving office. The former New York City mayor's most ambitious project has been funding the "State Energy and Environmental Impact Center" (SEEIC) at the New York University...

    Volodymyr Zhukovskyy is what happens when you stop enforcing all the laws, for all the people. If you tell one group of individuals that, for whatever reason, there are certain laws they no longer have to abide by, it’s not long before everybody else begins to believe that there’s no reason they should be held accountable for any crimes they commit either. Here’s the deal for any society: either all the laws have to be enforced for everybody, across the board, or pretty soon they’re not going to be enforced for anybody. The only alternative is to start repealing all...

    Katherine and Louis Kealoha found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - After deliberating for less than nine hours, a jury of seven men and five women found former law enforcement power couple Louis and Katherine Kealoha guilty Thursday of conspiracy and other counts in one of Hawaii's most closely-watched public corruption trials. After hearing the verdict, the Kealohas left the federal courthouse stone-faced. Katherine Kealoha, walking ahead of her husband, and her attorneys declined comment. Louis Katherine, appearing stunned at his incredible turn of fortunes, told reporters: "There's still a lot to take in. I just...

    In April, a Navy SEAL was rejected from a job in the Fire Department of New York because he was over the age requirement by about seven months, after public outrage, legislation has now been passed that will allow him to serve. Special Operations Chief Shaun Donovan, 37, will be able to serve with the FDNY if Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signs the legislation. The bill increases the window for military veterans by one year and was passed by the legislature Thursday.

    WASHINGTON – Kristine Lucius, executive vice president for policy and government affairs at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, issued the following statement on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote to advance the nomination of Daniel Bress (U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit). “Bress, a young conservative ideologue, is the third nominee to the Ninth Circuit to advance over the objection of both Ranking Member Feinstein and Senator Harris this year alone. This unravelling of a long-established process is part of Trump’s efforts to reshape the courts and, in particular, to remake the Ninth Circuit, which has...

    Justice Democrats, the progressive insurgent group that recruited and helped elect Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), has found its first Democratic primary challenger to support during the 2020 cycle. The group is supporting immigration and human-rights attorney Jessica Cisneros in her attempt to unseat Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) in Texas’ 28th Congressional District. Cisneros formally launched her campaign on Thursday with a platform of ending family separation, Medicare for All, the Green New Deal and a rejection of all corporate PAC and lobbyist contributions. “Our congressman claims to be a Democrat, but he’s voted with Trump nearly 70 percent of the...

    For those who despair that the rule of law in America is being crushed by liberal fake news, we have encouraging news out of Ohio. A jury has ruled that Oberlin College, one of the nation's most left-wing institutions of higher learning, must pay the proprietors of Gibson's Bakery in Oberlin, Ohio, $11.2 million in damages for libel, slander and other disruptions that the college caused in the business by encouraging false charges of racism. The day after the 2016 presidential election, an Oberlin student entered Gibson's Bakery, near the college campus, and slipped a bottle of wine into his...

    LEWISBURG, W.Va. — A financial services company coming after Gov. Jim Justice personally for $2.79 million is asking the Greenbrier County sheriff to seize personal property and for Justice assets in a dozen banks to be checked. Meanwhile, a legal ad says the sheriff of Logan County has been authorized to sell shares of two Justice-owned companies to settle yet another debt in the court system. This has been quite a week for Governor Justice and his family’s vast holdings. Court cases, including some from afar, keep resulting in local law enforcement officers being asked to assess what personal property...

Justice Thomas, in a relaxed and reflective mood, was interviewed by David Rubenstein, a financier and philanthropist, in the Supreme Court’s courtroom as part of a series of lectures sponsored by the Supreme Court Historical Society.

    May 23, 2019 Stages of Persecution There are many ongoing attempts to erode religious liberty in the United States. In California, a bill has been introduced that would, in certain situations, compel priests to break the confessional seal (I would go to jail before I’d do that). The “Equality Act” (passed by the House of Representatives earlier this month and currently before the Senate) would add sexual orientation and the fanciful notion of “gender identity” to the set of characteristics currently protected by the Civil Rights Act (race, color, religion, sex, and national origin). In April, the 3rd U.S. Circuit...

    Sunday, May 19, 2019 [Catholic Caucus] “The Time of Mercy is Over” St. Padre Pio on the field of mercy and justice. The tension between mercy and justice is in the Church's current focus because of Pope Francis' emphasis on mercy. St. Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968) also commented on this field of tension in a letter: "Once, when our last hour has passed and our hearts have stopped beating, then everything will come to an end for us, the time to gain graces, as well as the time to forfeit graces. Just as death will find us, so will our...

    A former Florida police officer was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Thursday for fatally shooting a black motorist who was awaiting a tow truck in October 2015. Nouman Raja, 41, was fired from the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department shortly after he killed Corey Jones, 31, while on plainclothes duty, and was convicted last month by a jury of manslaughter and first-degree murder. The conviction was unusual in a country in which police officers kill roughly 1,000 people each year, a disproportionate number of them black men, usually without facing prosecution, according to a Washington Post database on...

    We use many words and concepts in our daily lives without bothering to consider their true content. In my experience, few words are less examined than “justice.” It is a word that is foundational in the modern world with deep roots in religious tradition. Most people would agree that the desire for justice is virtually innate in human beings. However, it has a dark side of which very few seem to be aware. In the religious tradition, justice is usually grounded within God Himself. Some associate this justice with God’s demand for right conduct from His creation. There is also...

    Sheila O'Brien, a former Illinois Appellate Court judge, and Saani Mohammed, a prosecutor who until recently worked for Foxx, have separately filed petitions asking for a special prosecutor to look into how Foxx handled the case. The Chicago chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police joined with a large group of suburban police chiefs Thursday to express "no confidence" in Foxx, taking advantage of her inept handling of the Smollett case to air a far larger set of grievances over what they say is Foxx's tendency "to decriminalize or ignore (nonviolent crime), regardless of any collateral cost which is (borne)...

    Let me ask you a personal question: Why do you believe what you believe? Why? From where did you derive your values as a human being? In my case, there was an amazing, very strict Latin teacher at school who I think helped me internalize some of my values. Everybody has mentors, of course, or one hopes everyone may be so blessed. But for the majority of human beings who have ever lived on God’s green Earth, their values come from their parents. It’s incontrovertible. Parents are our primary role models. And for men, you always—always—try to live up to...
