    Majority Democrats on a Senate committee on Thursday abandoned their work, which was targeting conservatives on the Supreme Court, when GOP members suggested subpoenas for the staff of leftist Justice Sonia Sotomayor... Senate Judiciary Committee “punted” on votes scheduled regarding the issuance of subpoenas for GOP donors Leonard Leo and Harlan Crow. Sen Dick Durbin, D-Ill., has accused the two of “stonewalling” an investigation into the high court “that seeks to determine whether two Republican-appointed justices, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, acted with any impropriety,” the report said. The confrontation was launched when ProPublica said they helped facilitate trips for...

    Before anyone goes nuts, this money did NOT go to the GOPe or Mitch McConnell etc. Instead it went to the very strong conservative Leonard Leo, who is the co Chairman of the Federalist Society, the organization that reviewed and strongly recommended President Trump's excellent judicial nominees. The money went to the Marble Freedom Trust, a strongly conservative PAC headed by Leonard Leo. The money came from one Berre Seid, a Chicago based electrons mogul/billionaire. Naturally the liberal heads are exploding everywhere. Its fun to watch the crazy Chris Hayes suffer a massive meltdown over this stunning donation to conservatives....

    CNN — A Pennsylvania killer who escaped from prison nearly two weeks ago has been spotted again, this time with authorities warning he is “possibly armed with a weapon.” Danelo Cavalcante was sighted in Chester County’s South Coventry Township, about 20 miles north of the prison he escaped from, according to an alert sent to area residents from Chester County 911 on Monday night. “The Pennsylvania State Police are receiving reports of escaped convict Danelo Cavalcante in the area of Ridge Rd/Coventryville Rd/Daisy Point Rd in South Coventry Township possibly armed with a weapon,” the alert read. “Residents in the...
  • Prosecutorial Indiscretion - Washington, D.C.’s attorney general puts politics before public safety.

    City Journal ^ | 30 Aug, 2023 | Sean Kennedy
    Amid a surge in youth-driven violent crime in the nation’s capital, newly elected attorney general for the District of Columbia Brian Schwalb is laser-focused—on his political enemies. Reports suggest that Schwalb is investigating, of all people, Leonard Leo, the longtime chairman of the Federalist Society. Leo is an odd target for a probe, since his supposed malfeasance is financial self-dealing related to nonprofits registered in other states. If those allegations are substantiated, they would constitute federal tax and wire-fraud crimes—infractions far outside the jurisdiction of D.C. authorities. Stranger still, the precipitating complaint against Leo for alleged “dark money” shenanigans was...

    *** “The sheriff is supposed to be protecting the public from evil,” the chief law enforcement officer for Barry County, Michigan, said during a break in the National Sheriffs’ Association 2023 conference in June. “When your government is evil or out of line, that’s what the sheriff is there for, protecting them from that.” Leaf is on the advisory board of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, founded in 2011 by former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack. The group, known as CSPOA, teaches that elected sheriffs must “protect their citizens from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government” by refusing...

    Asheville’s recently announced 17.4 percent spike in violent crime for 2022 over the previous year was totally predictable, local Fraternal Order of Police President Rondell Lance told the Daily Planet during an April 8 telephone interview. More specifically, Lance, who is retired after a lengthy career in police work, explained that the city, along with Buncombe County, has fostered an environment where criminals know they can break the law and face little or no consequences for their actions. Asheville’s skyrocketing violent crime last year was driven largely by aggravated assaults, Asheville Police Chief David Zack noted during the city’s March...

The Wells High School student won an honorable mention two years ago for his entry in the state’s Scholastic Arts Awards, cited for his submission in the jewelry category. He played on the town football team, winners of the 2018 state title, and spent summers as a groundskeeper at the local golf course in what locals called “The Friendliest Town in Maine.” “He was chill,” recalled an old friend who worked alongside the accused terrorist at the Old Marsh Country Club. “He was always just quiet...

    Conflicting timeline reports and identical language used by numerous officers in separate reports raise questions.. A 104-page report issued three months after the events at the Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021, said the Capitol Police’s Civil Disturbance Unit (CDU) was ordered by supervisors not to use “heavier, less-lethal weapons,” like flash bangs. However, video evidence—along with Capitol Police Use of Force Reports obtained exclusively by The Epoch Times—exposes conflicts in timelines, the brutality of the unprovoked attacks against Jan. 6 protesters, and how leadership ordered the deployment of munitions on a peaceful crowd.

There were three others in the helicopter, which had crashed in a remote part of San Miguel County. “He’s just advising that it’s just him right now, but he is stating that there were four on board, including himself,” the dispatcher said over the radio, kicking off a frantic search. By 8:06 p.m. the caller had fallen silent as officers and firefighters scoured a 5-mile area for the...
