    The former director of the Vatican’s anti-money laundering entity said Francis had voiced ‘the interest of the Holy See in turning a new page.’ VATICAN CITY (RNS) — Testifying at the massive trial resulting from the Vatican’s latest financial scandal Wednesday (April 27), the former director of the Catholic Church’s anti-money-laundering watchdog agency said Pope Francis and other high-ranking prelates backed efforts to gain sole ownership of the prime London real estate at the center of the scandal. Tommaso Di Ruzza, who ran the entity now called the Supervisory and Financial Information Authority, known as ASIF, is charged with abuse...
  • 41 Charged In Florida “Sex Money Murder” Gang, Racketeering Investigation

    Detectives with the PCSO Organized Crime Unit, working together with the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC), the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), and the Florida Attorney General’s Office of Statewide Prosecution, Ashley Moody, Attorney General, conducted a comprehensive Florida RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) Act investigation that resulted in 41 members and associates of the “Sex Money Murder” criminal gang enterprise being arrested or charged. The investigation was initiated in March of 2021 when, based on information obtained from historical on-going criminal investigations, detectives uncovered an extensive criminal network associated with the Sex Money Murder gang. Out of...
  • Created for mobs and the mafia, could this law apply in a church sexual abuse case?

    Women who say they survived sexual abuse within a group of conservative Baptist churches are using an unusual legal method to try and hold their alleged abuser accountable — the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) law was passed in 1970 as a way to prosecute mobs as whole entities rather than try mob-related activities individually. RICO has most notably been used to prosecute criminal enterprises such as the mafia, gangs and corrupt police departments and politicians. On Wednesday, attorneys argued before a U.S. District Appeals Court that RICO should be applied...

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis allegedly authorized negotiating an exit strategy for a key figure in the Vatican’s bungled London real estate investment and was so satisfied with the outcome that he paid for a celebratory dinner at a fancy Roman fish restaurant the night the 15-million- euro payout closed, a defendant in the Vatican’s extortion trial testified Wednesday. The testimony by Monsignor Mauro Carlino, a onetime secretary in the Vatican secretariat of state, placed the pope squarely in the center of the Vatican’s landmark trial and raised questions about why low-ranking Vatican officials were indicted and their superiors...
  • Antifa thugs win again as Dartmouth cancels my event on far-left violence

    I was scheduled to speak last week at Dartmouth College by invitation of the chapter College Republicans and Turning Point USA. The Thursday “Extremism in America” event was meant to highlight America’s long history with far-left violent extremism, a subject politicians and media oft ignore and deny. Gabriel Nadales, a former member of California militant leftist groups, was the co-speaker. But we never got to step on stage to a live audience. Soon after the event was announced, Antifa and its army of online trolls threatened violence to shut it down. In turn, Dartmouth administrators gave the extremists exactly what...

    Nine U.S. House Democrats have asked the Justice Department to release American environmental lawyer Steven Donziger, who spent decades battling Chevron Corp over pollution in the Ecuadorian rainforest. The disbarred lawyer was handed a six-month imprisonment sentence in October for criminal contempt arising from a lawsuit brought by the oil company. The Democrats including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib on Monday said in a letter addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland that the lawyer was jailed for "petty contempt of court". "As the United States is a party to the District Court case against Mr. Donziger, we request that you...

    Wisconsin Right Now ^ | November 8, 2021 | Jessica McBride & Jim Piwowarczyk
    Cortez Rice, who is a BLM activist in Minnesota, says on video that jurors in the Kenosha trial of Kyle Rittenhouse are being photographed. The names of the jurors in the trial were sealed by the judge making it harder for them to be doxxed. However, the public has access to the court proceedings, where the jurors sit in plain view. Only journalistic pool photographers are allowed inside the courtroom. The Rittenhouse trial just concluded week 1; it didn’t go well for the prosecution, which has failed to present evidence that counters his self-defense claims. There hasn’t been much protest...

    On August 7, 2021, I wrote about how states along our southern border could thwart the Biden (*) administration’s material support for the drug cartels and the crimes being committed by invoking the RICO Statute. The statute seems to address directly the various activities in which the administration has engaged over the last ten months at our Southern border. Here, from NOLO, is the meat of that statute: Passed in 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a federal law designed to combat organized crime in the United States. It allows prosecution and civil penalties for racketeering...

    A petition from advocacy groups is calling for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to stop claiming it does not have relationships with or accept financial support from drug manufacturers and other companies that might benefit from agency research. The CDC has accepted millions of dollars through the CDC Foundation, according to the groups behind the petition. During fiscal years 2014 through 2018, the CDC Foundation received $79.6 million from companies like Pfizer, Biogen, and Merck. Since it was created by Congress in 1995, the nonprofit organization has accepted $161 million from corporations. Public Citizen, Knowledge Ecology International,...

    A lawsuit filed yesterday by aggrieved 2020 poll-watchers represented by Kurt Olsen, Dershowitz and others alleges that Dominion Voting Systems is a government entity and also did much RICO by sending cease-and-desist letters. Lawsuit asserts that 3rd party vendor Dominion was operating as the government itself. Dershowitz said in a brief interview that though he is not the lead attorney on this new class-action lawsuit, he described himself as an “adviser and consultant on the First Amendment issues of this case.” “I consider this a part of the bigger-picture efforts, that includes my consulting on Mike Lindell and MyPillow’s cases....

    Merrick Garland's Department of Justice has discovered a new group that poses a pressing threat to the country's safety and wellbeing. Their potential crimes are heinous: Objecting to the propagation in our schools of critical race theory and anti-white racism. How deep does this criminal behavior go? We can't say. Announcing a "partnership among federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement to address threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff," Garland offers no statistical evidence about the rising threat of infuriated parents. He makes no mention of any arrests. He doesn't say whether a police department or...

    Olivia Julianna, an 18-year-old from Sugar Land, is shown Sunday, Sept. 5, 2021 in Houston. She was one of the TikTokers who hatched a plan to sabotage a pro-life group's "whistleblower" website by encouraging her peers to flood the website with fake complaints. "We grew up on Divergent and Hunger Games and all these things," Julianna said, referring to the dystopian books and movies. "They taught us to fight for what we believe in. To stand up for what we think is right. So now we're doing that."

    A top official at Facebook laid out actions the social network had taken to contain the spread of misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines by 12 prominent users Wednesday, but denied claims by the White House that the so-called “disinformation dozen” were responsible for the majority of all such falsehoods. “In recent months, there has been a debate about whether the global problem of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation can be solved simply by removing 12 people from social media platforms,” Facebook Vice President of Content Policy Monika Bickert said in a statement. “People who have advanced this narrative contend that these 12 people...

    As often as leftists hype the Wuhan Virus — along with the vaccine, masks, lockdowns, etc. — they keep getting put in their place by the data. In order to keep alive the false notion that "systemic racism" is rampant in the United States, leftists across America have peddled massive amounts of misleading information. (The hotly debated "Critical Race Theory" is filled with it.) Thus, it should come as little surprise that the COVID-loving mask cultists on the left would stoop to spinning false or misleading tales about Wuhan Virus doom and gloom in order to help keep as much...

    Recently released e-mails show that Dr. Anthony Fauci knew key facts about the origins of COVID-19 in January 2020. But at that critical time, when the country was first learning about the virus, Dr. Fauci chose not to share the facts with Americans. Instead, he acted to conceal them. On January 31, 2020, at 10:32 p.m., Dr. Fauci received an email from British researcher, Dr. Kristian Andersen. Dr. Andersen has received millions of dollars in grants from the NIH. In the email, he warned Dr. Fauci: [O]ne has to look really closely at all the sequences to see that some...
