  • Uranus' 4 biggest moons may have buried oceans of salty water

    'If the moons had benefited from long-term heating, then they could have maintained a thick ocean.' NASA's James Webb Space Telescope captured this shot of Uranus and six of its 27 known moons. A number of background objects, including distant galaxies, are also visible. (Image credit: SCIENCE: NASA, ESA, CSA, STScI IMAGE PROCESSING: Joseph DePasquale (STScI)) The four biggest moons of Uranus may harbor salty oceans below their frozen surfaces, a new study suggests. Scientists taking a fresh look at 40-year-old data sent home by NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft say that the satellites Titania and Oberon, which orbit the farthest...
  • The ACLU Thinks Kyle Rittenhouse's Civil Liberties Got Too Much Protection

    The American Civil Liberties Union should not cavalierly take the side of prosecutors against the concept of self-defense. Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who shot and killed two men during the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last summer, was acquitted on Friday. Prosecutors had charged him with first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, but the jury was persuaded by Rittenhouse's argument that he acted in self-defense. For anyone who had followed the trial closely, this outcome is unsurprising. The prosecution simply did not meet its burden of proof, and Rittenhouse's...
  • Lin-Manuel Miranda Apologizes For Not Casting ‘Darker Skinned’ Black And Latino Actors In Latest Musical

    If an incredibly diverse film featuring woke politics and broad representation both in front of and behind the camera can't satisfy the mob, nothing will.Will anything ever be enough to satisfy the woke mob? One might think that a cast filled with non-white actors might win them over. Or, maybe a movie celebrating immigrants and Latino culture and identity could excite? But of course not, that would make far too much sense.Movie-musical “In the Heights” is under fire for “insufficient representation” in the cast. Apparently, having a black and Latino cast is no longer sufficient, as intersectionality dictates that this...
  • Ever hear of your Miranda rights?

    Ok. Everybody has pretty much heard of their "right" to be silent and to have the police tell them (once they are arrested) that they have A RIGHT TO AN ATTORNEY before any questions are answered. You see it on cop shows all the time, you know when the cops says "You have a right to an attorney, one must be present when you answer any questions... do you understand these rights?" and then the shows drags on. But the Miranda decision had to do with much more than that. It plainly and clearly says... pp 491 "Where rights secured...
  • Ties to Ukrainian National a Unifying Theme in Early Attacks on Trump

    The Markets Work ^ | April 11, 2019 | Jeff Carlson, CFA
    While special counsel Robert Mueller has concluded there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, some of the key people in creating the Russia-collusion narrative themselves have ties to a foreign nation. Both the Democratic National Committee as well as Fusion GPS—the company hired by the DNC and the Clinton campaign to research the Trump campaign—were using Ukrainian sources in their efforts to discredit Trump. Serhiy Leshchenko, a member of the Ukrainian Parliament, was a common thread involved in Democratic opposition research efforts into former Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. Leshchenko, along with Artem Sytnyk, the...
  • Collusion Memos

    11/19/2003 8:11:00 AM PST · by William McKinley · 122 replies · 3,896+ views
    <p>The source of the memos is unclear. The sheer volume of the memos, however, suggests that the memos weren't simply misplaced by someone – they appear to have been intentionally leaked by a Democrat. Also, the memos, which begin in late 2001, cut off suddenly in April 2003. This suggests that they came from a former staffer, rather than someone who recently accessed Democrats' computers. Finally, the only information blacked out in the memos is staffers' names. Whoever leaked these memos did not care about the Senators, but apparently knew the staffers and cared enough to spare them embarrassment.</p>

    On July 12, Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda stood up at his show and welcomed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to his show. “This November, the difference could not be more stark, who do you think is going to get closer to those ideals?” he asked, referring to the Constitution and the founding fathers. “Are you going to vote for the guy who wants to build a wall, or for someone who’s building bridges?” Miranda introduced Clinton as “the forty-fifth president of the United States” as she took the stage to address the crowd. Why? Because it was a...

    Obama gave this bloodthirsty Libyan jihad murderer the full protection of a US citizen. Ahmed Abu Khatallah was mirandized and has since clamped down and shut up, which was Obama’s objective all along. In the continuing cover-up of the Benghazi jihad murderers and Obama’s feckless and reckless abandonment of our people, Obama’s main objective is to cover up what really happened that night on his watch. This Libyan devout jihadi was read his Miranda rights — which give him the right to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination, a U.S. official told CNN. “I have serious concerns that conducting a rushed...

    The Guardian newspaper says British agents destroyed their newsroom hard drives after they began publishing revelations from National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. In an opinion piece, Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger claimed the hard drives were destroyed after weeks of pressure by British government officials. He said the drives were torn apart in the basement of their office building as British intelligence agents looked on. "One of the more bizarre moments in the Guardian's long history occurred with two GCHQ security experts overseeing the destruction of hard drives in the Guardian's basement just to make sure there was nothing in...

    The Guardian ^ | 8/19/13 | Jonathan Watts in Rio de Janeiro
    David Miranda, the partner of the Guardian journalist who broke stories of mass surveillance by the US National Security Agency, has accused Britain of a "total abuse of power" for interrogating him for almost nine hours at Heathrow under the Terrorism Act. In his first interview since returning to his home in Rio de Janeiro early on Monday, Miranda said the authorities in the UK had pandered to the US in trying to intimidate him and force him to reveal the passwords to his computer and mobile phone. "They were threatening me all the time and saying I would be...

    In a 5-4 decision the Supreme Court ruled today that a potential defendant’s silence can be used against him if he is being interviewed by police but is not arrested (and read his Miranda rights) and has not verbally invoked the protection of the Fifth Amendment.Tim Lynch at the Cato Institute explains that the Salinas v. Texas case was intended to be about whether prosecutors during a trial could cast aspersions on a defendant’s silence during questioning that took place prior to arrest — prior to the defendent being told he had the right to remain silent. Instead, the Supreme...

    The Supreme Court says prosecutors can use a person’s silence against them if it comes before he's told of his right to remain silent. The 5-4 ruling comes in the case of Genovevo Salinas, who was convicted of a 1992 murder. During police questioning, and before he was arrested or read his Miranda rights, Salinas answered some questions but did not answer when asked if a shotgun he had access to would match up with the murder weapon. Prosecutors in Texas used his silence on that question in convicting him of murder, saying it helped demonstrate his guilt. Salinas appealed,...

    Updating our earlier report: Details are emerging that when U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler read Dhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, she went to his hospital room accompanied by a federal public defender (meaning taxpayer-funded) and an assistant U.S. attorney from the Massachusetts prosecutor’s office. Reports say the FBI was only partway through questioning Tsarnaev to get intelligence to determine who else was involved in the plot and how broad it was. The FBI told federal lawmakers in classified briefings this week they were “stunned” when this judicial officer and lawyers from both sides showed up to read him his rights....
  • The Tsarnaev Miranda – Who Exactly is Judge Marianne Bowler ? Who Directed Her, and Why?….

    The FBI works for, and falls under the authority of, the Federal Department of Justice, Eric Holder. Which brings in a strange series of questions regarding the stoppage of questioning by the FBI of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Megyn Kelly outlines the initial issue: Initially the feds proclaimed Tsarnaev would fall under the “public safety exception to miranda” which would have given them 48 hours to question him prior to the delivery of Miranda protection. The feds didn’t even need to charge him with anything right away – but they did. In addition, something, obviously unexpected by the FBI interrogators, was changed....

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev stopped talking once he was prematurely read his Miranda rights. That helps the authorities establish the lone wolf narrative. Whatever else we might have learned from him is probably lost. ... District Court Judge Marianne Bowler arrived at the hospital where he is being treated to preside over his initial hearing Monday, when she read him his Miranda rights. ... Judge Bowler has some interesting international connections. She is a member of the Member of the International Judicial Relations Committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States.

According to Kelly, Dzhokhar was giving the agents crucial information before the judge, at the request of the Obama Administration, put a stop to it. Regular viewers of Fox News are used to seeing popular host Megyn Kelly on their televisions every afternoon, but on Thursday morning Kelly made a special appearance during the morning to break some surprising information: according to her sources, the FBI was “shocked”...
