    After they beat Azat Azatyan so bad blood came out of his ears; after they sent electric shocks up his genitals; after they wacked him with pipes and truncheons, the Russians began to interrogate him about his faith. “When did you become a Baptist? When did you become an American spy?” Azat tried to explain that in Ukraine there was freedom of religion, you could just choose your faith. But his torturers saw the world the same way as their predecessors at the KGB did: an American church is just a front for the American state. Azat was dragged back...

    Most of the time it is too hard to see the line between ignorance and idiocy, but then most of the time no one is looking for it. What would we see if we began to look for the subtle difference? It will take you by surprise. A perfect example of late, is the idea of a New York judge who thinks he can hold Donald Trump back from attending his son’s graduation ceremony.

    A juror who was excused from serving on the Manhattan trial of former President Donald Trump provided details about the questions potential jurors were asked.Kara McGee told media outlets outside the courtroom on Tuesday that she was dismissed but said she believes she could be impartial, adding still that it would be “very difficult for anyone really in this country to not come to this without prior opinions.”“We all have prior opinions on the defendant, unless you’ve been living in a cardbox,” she said, adding that she was excused because of her job in the cybersecurity sector.Regarding her personal feelings...

    Alvin Bragg’s office is now asking the court to impose sanctions and threatened Trump with jail time. Per MSNBC: Manhattan DA’s office asks court to impose a $1k sanction for each of 3 prior posts, order him to take them down, and warn him that further violations will result in jail time. DA notes a 9:12 am post today, potentially made inside the courthouse, also violates the order. Judge Merchan said he will sign the order to show case that sets forth a briefing schedule.

    In July 2023, Joshua Youngerman was arrested in California on five misdemeanors for his participation in the events of January 6. According to charging documents, Youngerman entered the Capitol at 2:37 p.m.—20 minutes after the House went into recess amid the escalating chaos—through an open door as Capitol Police stood by. He exited through the same door two minutes later. But just last week, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves added another charge to Youngerman’s case: 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c)(2), obstruction of an official proceeding. Youngerman is one of more than 330 J6ers charged with the evidence-destroying...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | April 14, 2024 | Cristina Laila
    President Trump on Sunday blasted the far-left judge overseeing the Stormy Daniels ‘hush money’ trial which is set to begin on Monday. Recall that Trump’s lawyers asked for a 90-day delay so they can pour over the thousands of pages of discovery, but the judge denied their request. Trump went off on Judge Merchan for giving his lawyers a short period of time to read through the hundreds of thousands of pages of documents that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg illegally hid. “Judge Juan Merchan, perhaps the most highly conflicted Judge in New York State history, only gave us a short...

    Judge Aileen Cannon ordered the public release of the FBI’s interview of Trump’s valet driver Walt Nauta. Walt Nauta is a former White House employee and Navy veteran who worked valet for Trump and served as a personal staffer at Mar-a-Lago. According to the transcript of the May 2022 interview, the FBI interrogated Trump’s aide Walt Nauta – without Trump’s knowledge. The FBI agents approached Walt Nauta and asked for a voluntary interview under the guise of national security interest (similar to the General Flynn ambush). “On May 26, 2022, NAUTA participated in a voluntary interview with the FBI.

Weisselberg falsely testified that he was unfocused on the details of Trump’s triplex apartment, which was valued at almost three times its actual size on Trump’s financial statements.

    Thread by Julie KellyJust when you thought Jack Smith's J6 case against Donald Trump couldn't get any more laughable--it just did. In one week, SCOTUS will hear arguments on DOJ's (ab)use of 1512c2, post Enron document shredding "obstruction of an official proceeding" statute passed in 2002. My longtime followers know I've covered this issue for 3+ years. More than 330 J6ers and Trump have been charged with this felony obstruction count--now SCOTUS has a chance to right an horrific wrong that has destroyed (and ended) lives as this ruthless DOJ intentionally misinterprets the law to criminalize political dissent. DOJ's use...

    Former President Donald Trump has challenged Judge Juan Merchan over an expanded gag order that now includes his daughter, Loren. Trump has expressed his willingness to go to jail for violating the gag order, comparing his situation to that of Nelson Mandela and stating it would be a ‘great honor’ and a sacrifice for a worthy cause.

    "Never trust a man who lays his hand on his heart when he assures you of anything," goes the old axiom. That's why I never trust a Democrat who makes any promise ever about a federal agency or program. Take Medicare. In 1966 when Medicare began, it cost $3 billion. The House Ways and Means Committee estimated that Medicare would cost about $12 billion by 1990. Instead, it cost $107 billion and today costs the government close to a trillion dollars.So when Joe Biden and the Democrats assured Americans and Republicans in Congress that the $80 billion the president wanted...

    Documents for Donald Trump's $175 million bond in his New York civil fraud case were rejected by a court because a current financial statement was not included. On Wednesday, a message on the New York State Supreme Court's electronic filing system showed Trump's "Bond/Undertaking" had been "returned for correction."New York State Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron ruled in February against Trump; his two eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump; and others associated with the Trump Organization. They were accused in a lawsuit from New York Attorney General Letitia James of inflating the former president's net worth and the...

    Jesse Watters ran a devastating segment last night on radical Judge Juan Merchan who silenced President Donald Trump from talking about his family’s financial ties to the current junk case he is presiding over against Donald Trump in New York City. Judge Merchan should be impeached for this lawlessness. This is peak corruption and cannot stand. Jesse Watters: Judge Juan Merchan, who is presiding over Trump’s so-called hush money case in New York, slapped an even bigger gag order on the former President last night. Trump is banned from talking about the judge’s family. Why? Because the judge’s family was...

    Far-left NY judge Juan Merchan Monday night expanded Trump’s gag order and barred the former president from criticizing his family members. Last week Judge Merchan hit Trump with a gag order. Merchan ordered Trump to refrain from making any public statements about witnesses and jurors in the Stormy Daniels case. Alvin Bragg accused Trump of violating the gag order when he criticized Merchan’s daughter even though she isn’t a witness or a juror. President Trump last Wednesday said the daughter of the far-left judge who just hit him with a gag order in the Stormy Daniels ‘hush payment’ case posted...

    In an appalling violation of the code of ethics, US District Judge Reggie Walton went on CNN to speak publicly about pending legal matters. Judge Walton, a Bush appointee, spoke with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins Thursday evening about threats he has received after he called Trump a “charlatan” and rendered excessive punishment to J6 defendants. “I’ve had more threats than what used to be the case,” the judge said referring to a January 6 case he oversaw. Even Kaitlan Collins conceded that it is “rare that we get to hear from a sitting federal judge." “I’m wondering, what made you speak...
