    Bill Garlock and Gina Rodriguez will be sentenced in March on money laundering and mail fraud scheme charges involving a home linked to Paul Pelosi Jr., 55 .. The two are accused of duping investors out of over $1M for supposed real estate ventures - but instead used the cash for their own expenses.. Speaking to DailyMail.com, financial crime experts question how Pelosi avoided charges himself, pointing to DoJ's history of 'protecting powerful political elites' ...

  • The Colorado Supreme Court 4-3 Decision is Pure Nonsense and Can Be Laughed At, They Even Admit It on Page 9 (court stays own ruling)

    #3) Instead of me writing it, let me screengrab it so we can all laugh together [pdf page 9]. Wait, what? Yes, that’s correct. As long as President Trump appeals the decision to the Supreme Court, the appeals court stays their own ruling – essentially indefinitely. The Colorado primary ballots printed, and the primary election will be over, before the Supreme Court puts this on their docket. In addition to the virtual guarantee the high court will overrule this political nonsense, SCOTUS can make the entire issue moot before them by following their own normal schedule for submissions, arguments, deliberation...
  • Why the left hates American law

    American Thinker ^ | 2 Dec, 2023 | Matthew G. Andersson
    Many conservatives, moderates, and even fair-minded liberals have been startled by the way the DNC is twisting American legal standards to pursue and remove a political rival. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich asserted that “the left will destroy the law in order to destroy Trump.” As Americans grapple with their own legal system, which appears completely malleable in the hands of special interests, it may be helpful to consider what the political left is really seeking to do, and by what ideology. The Progressive Left embraces a legal ideology foreign to English and American common law and stands in direct...

    Carlos Campos came to Miami from Venezuela in 1979, before dictator Hugo Chávez’s socialist revolution brought about the unraveling of the oil-rich country. But it wasn’t until 2016 that Campos became actively engaged in US politics. Donald Trump’s “America First” message stirred something in him. Sitting down at a Cuban restaurant just minutes from the Trump National Doral golf resort — one of the former president’s major Miami-area properties aside from his Mar-a-Lago estate — Campos described how he came to the realization that his values aligned more closely with Republicans than Democrats. He attends Alpha & Omega, a Spanish-language...

    Florida Politics ^ | September 16th 2023 | Unknown
    (The law) is impacting their ability to just go about their day like they used For many in Florida’s vast immigrant community, daily life in recent months has become one governed entirely by fear. Some try to drive as little as possible and make fewer trips to the supermarket. Others no longer take their children to the park and worry about allowing them to attend school. Others still are hiding out — avoiding travel to other states, not getting regular medical check-ups, or closing their businesses and leaving town. And many are just on high alert — all because of...

    Any halfway informed person knows we are entering a new legal environment. Thanks, Joe. The erudite and insightful Roger Kimball, who is well known to the readers at American Thinker, discusses in his essay the disappearance of the American respect for and application of the rule of law: Instead of proper rule of law we are living with that Orwellian alternative, Our Rule of Law — an arbitrary enforcement of the laws and use of the coercive power of the state. Mr. Kimball opens with a recall of the Hemingway novel The Sun Also Rises, which describes what is playing...

    The Hill ^ | 06/15/2023 | LAUREN SFORZA
    Former George W. Bush aide Karl Rove warned in a new op-ed that former President Trump’s federal indictment over his mishandling of classified documents will come at a steep cost to himself and the country. “No matter the outcome, America will pay a high price for the former president’s reckless petulance. So will he,” Rove wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. Rove, who served as a senior adviser and deputy chief of staff to Bush, wrote that the country has been “plunged into an unprecedented crisis” after Trump was indicted on 37 felony counts last week. The former president...

    Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody won another round against the Biden administration in federal court, this time in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. On Monday, the court ruled to keep in place an injunction against the Department of Homeland Security’s parole program. The injunction was issued by a federal district judge in Florida last month. DHS appealed the judge’s ruling and lost. On May 8, U.S. District Judge T. Kent Wetherell of the Northern District of Florida Pensacola Division vacated DHS’s “Policy on the Use of Parole Plus Alternatives to Detention to Decompress Border Locations.” On May 16, he...

    When agents of the deep state hector you about “the rule of law,” laugh in their faces.The Czech novelist Milan Kundera published The Joke, his first novel, in 1967. It traces the fortunes of Ludvik, a young student, after his politically correct girlfriend shows the Communist authorities a postcard he had written to her as a joke: “Optimism is the opium of the people! A healthy atmosphere stinks of stupidity! Long live Trotsky! Ludvik.” As a result of this whimsy, Ludvik finds himself expelled from the Communist Party, the university, and is eventually conscripted to work in the mines. That’s...

    You were probably not alone if the news of Donald Trump’s indictment seemed slightly strange: How could something so big — the first criminal indictment of an American president — seem so small? Mr. Trump was not indicted for his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election or for engaging in egregious financial fraud to increase his wealth or even for allegedly obstructing the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, which many once thought was the best avenue prosecutors had to ensnare the former president. Instead, the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, a Democrat, and his team of...

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected former President Donald Trump's last-ditch plea to block the release of his tax records to House Democrats, paving the way for their possible disclosure to the lawmakers. The decision by the court in a brief order noting no dissenting votes means the committee can try to access the documents ahead of the Republican take-over of the House in January. The committee, however, has not said how quickly it expects to get the documents. Upon taking control, Republicans are expected to withdraw the request. Earlier this month, Chief Justice John Roberts temporarily blocked...

    Former Gov. Chris Christie created a firestorm on ABC News’ “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday, with what he had to say about the Jan. 6 Committee. Christie pointed out that, to many Republicans, the Committee doesn’t have any credibility. That’s because they don’t have any real Republicans on the Committee to make any points against the Democratic narrative. The January 6 committee was “resigned to having a credibility problem because of the membership of the committee and the way that was done,” Christie opened by saying. “There are lots of Republicans across this country who just say, there’s...

    Don’t ask, don’t tell.That’s how gun owners and law-enforcement officers should approach New York’s unconstitutional new gun law.I won’t tell you what I’m carrying, and don’t you ask me what I have.We may be the targets of illegal oppression, but we don’t have to be accomplices to it. Beginning today, carrying handguns is prohibited almost everywhere in the state of New York. They can’t be carried on public property, and they can’t be carried on private property unless the owner or lessee posts a large sign declaring that they are welcome.When you eliminate public property and private property, that’s all...

    Ever since news broke of the FBI raiding former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago, people have been talking about the rule of law, and how no one is above the law (except Hunter Biden, who’s clearly above the law). Coincidentally, this news broke right around the same time. Former senior FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty to forgery in getting that FISA warrant against Carter Page so the FBI could spy on the Trump organization. Clinesmith faced a harsh penalty — his law license was suspended. But that was then, and this is now. Clinesmith has been restored to...

She struck down the mask mandate for mass transit. Most travelers rejoiced and said goodbye to masks, perhaps for good. But not everyone was happy. The ruling sent COVID doomsdayers into panic mode.

    The game is pretty far along. Everything that’s been warned would happen over several years, as far back as 2008, is starting to happen in the open. All of it was probably planned for the Hillary Clinton presidency and the only delay was Donald Trump. That’s why they were so desperate to prevent his election and worked so hard to get rid of him when they failed. It’s also why they couldn’t wait another four years to implement the plan. The United States has been under a constitutional crisis for six years and not one Republican senator and only a...

    In early 2007, the brand new District Attorney for Milwaukee County, Wisconsin gave an interview to a local newspaper spelling out his ‘progressive’ approach to crime. He told the reporter: “Is there going to be an individual I divert [i.e. release back onto the street] or I put into treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody? You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.” (Actually his approach is invalidated by the data; rape, homicide, arson, aggravated assault, and other violent crime have risen dramatically in Milwaukee. His approach is clearly not...
