    Day by day, it seems like the divisions in our country get more and more stark. In another example of the growing differences in red vs. blue regions, Maricopa County Attorney General Rachel Mitchell is refusing to extradite a suspected murderer to New York, stating that she does not trust Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to prosecute the accused killer.At a Wednesday press briefing, Maricopa County Attorney General Rachel Mitchell said she would not release 26-year-old Raad Almansoori to authorities in New York City, saying it is safer for the general public to keep him locked up in Arizona rather...

    Following the monstrous $355 million fine leveled against President Trump and his associates for a victimless claim of inflating assets in New York City, New York's governor, Kathy Hochul, assured concerned investors that they have "nothing to worry about."According to The Hill: New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) addressed New York business owners in a new interview and told them there was “nothing to worry about” after former President Trump was hit with a $355 million fine and a ban on conducting business in New York for three years.Hochul joined John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on WABC 770 AM,...

    The Federalist ^ | 2/8/24 | BY: SHAWN FLEETWOOD
    By merely asking for examples, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas calmly destroyed respondents’ argument for disqualifying former President Donald Trump from Colorado’s 2024 presidential primary ballot. The moment came on Thursday morning, during oral arguments on Trump’s appeal to overturn the Colorado Supreme Court’s Dec. 19 decision to keep him off the Centennial State’s 2024 primary ballot. Colorado’s highest court claimed in its ruling that the former president can be “disqualified” from holding office under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which stipulates that “[n]o person” who has previously sworn an oath as an officer of the United States...

    Special counsel Jack Smith’s team has asked the Supreme Court to step in and decide the issue of presidential immunity regarding former President Donald Trump’s federal election interference charges. Smith is asking the court to immediately resolve the issue, to prevent any delay of the March 4 trial date. “Respondent’s appeal of the ruling rejecting his immunity and related claims, however, suspends the trial of the charges against him, scheduled to begin on March 4, 2024,” the special counsel wrote in a filing Monday. “It is of imperative public importance that respondent’s claims of immunity be resolved by this Court...

    For Donald J. Trump, a new set of New York Times/Siena College polls captures a stunning, seemingly contradictory picture. His 91 felony charges in four different jurisdictions have not significantly hurt him among voters in battleground states. Yet he remains weaker than at least one of his Republican rivals, and if he’s convicted and sentenced in any of his cases, some voters appear ready to turn on him — to the point where he could lose the 2024 election. Snip---------------- If the former president is convicted and sentenced — as many of his allies expect him to be in the...

    There are no elements to this farce of a judicial proceeding which will survive appellate court review. The entire motive and process is easily identified by any intellectually honest person as a complete sham and legal clown show, intended to advance extreme ideological Lawfare.President Trump delivered remarks and held an impromptu press conference during the recess of the court.

    An Idaho judge dismissed on Friday the state’s case against a Patriot Front member accused of conspiring to riot at an LGBT demonstration last year, finding that a prosecutor acted in “bad faith” by failing to provide the defendant with possibly exculpatory evidence. Judge Destry Randles’s order stems from the incident in June 2022, when 31 members of the right-wing nationalist group were arrested after someone reported seeing people loading into a U-Haul van like “a little army” at a hotel parking lot in Coeur d’Alene. Five of the Patriot Front defendants were convicted of misdemeanor charges of conspiracy to...

    Jack Smith isn’t a stupid man. A number of definitions apply to Smith, but stupid isn’t one of them. A zealot? A vainglorious, demagogic political hack who is doing the bidding of another political hack? Yes, to both. But Jack Smith isn’t dumb. Smith was the head of the public corruption unit at DOJ when, in 2014, he brought public corruption charges against sitting Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell. McDonnell was charged with 14 counts. Those counts included honest services wire fraud, obtaining property under “color of official right,” and extortion under “color of official right.” Like most DOJ attorneys with...

    Jack Smith was in charge of the public integrity section of the Justice Department during five of the Obama-Biden years, which was a massively corrupt administration. He must have had blinders on. He was there when Lois Lerner and the IRS corruptly targeted Obama's opponents, who wanted smaller government and lower taxes. Lerner violated their Constitutional rights to free speech and freedom of association with her targeted harassment. Then she lied to Congress and destroyed evidence. She clearly obstructed justice. Yet she, nor no one else surrounding her were ever charged and Lerner went off to retire at her beltway...

    It seems the climate change hysteria crowd is having trouble convincing people that we are all going to die in a gargantuan fireball if we don’t start driving electric vehicles and eating crickets. To remedy this issue, some progressive senators have concocted a novel idea: Throw people in prison for arguing against left-wing ideas on climate change.Sure, it’s a bit authoritarian, but it would be effective, wouldn’t it?Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders led a gaggle of fellow lawmakers in writing a letter to the Justice Department demanding that it prosecute people in the fossil fuel industry for saying things about climate...

    There’s being fortunate in your enemies, and then there’s having enemies who are helping you take the first step in your political comeback. Donald Trump and his adversaries want profoundly different things in the long run — Trump wants to be back in the White House; Democrats want him in an orange jumpsuit. Yet in the shorter term, they both are seeking the same thing — Trump as the Republican nominee, either so he can sweep to victory (Trump’s view) or be beaten again and pay the price for his crimes (the Democrats’ view). The serial indictments of Trump, even...

    A strange puzzle piece sits between the worlds of mental health care and the criminal legal system. For the last decade, nearly every county in Washington has sent a rapidly growing number of people in jail to undergo a competency evaluation — that is, there’s a question as to whether that person can legally stand trial, often due to mental illness, substance use or an intellectual or developmental disability. Those evaluations are necessary to move a criminal case forward. People deemed incompetent are given treatment, though it’s limited — usually medication and basic legal education to help them understand the...

    The Department of Justice is prepared to seek indictments against multiple figures in former president Donald Trump’s orbit and may yet bring additional charges against the ex-president in the coming weeks, The Independent has learned. According to sources familiar with the matter, the department has made preparations to bring what is known as a “superseding indictment” — a second set of charges against an already-indicted defendant that could include more serious crimes — against the ex-president in the Southern District of Florida. But prosecutors may also choose to bring additional charges against Mr Trump in a different venue, depending on...

Michael McDonald’s presence there alongside Jim DeGraffenreid, the state GOP vice chairman, underscored advances in special counsel Jack Smith’s other federal inquiry: the one into efforts by Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 election.

    Donald Trump’s onetime Attorney General William Barr said Sunday the former president is “toast” after being indicted by the federal government for mishandling classified documents. “The government acted responsibly. It was Donald J. Trump who acted irresponsibly,” Barr said on “Fox News Sunday” of the 37-count indictment against Trump, 76, unsealed Friday. “They’re solid counts,” Barr said. “Even if half of this is true he’s toast.” Barr noted he believed that Trump was treated unfairly by the FBI in the “Russiagate” collusion probe and with the indictment brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in the Stormy Daniels hush money...
