    According to the radical left, a payment to silence someone from making potentially damaging statements to influence the outcome of a presidential election is a serious crime. A felony at that. That’s the entirely hocus-pocus legal theory behind Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Donald Trump that resulted in a conviction. In that case, Barack Obama ought to be charged with a similar crime.

    New light is being brought to a 46-year-old cold case commonly referred to as the “Yuba County Five.” Inspired by a series of true crime podcasts, author Tony Wright has dedicated the last four years to research, interviews, and documentation, compiling his findings into his new book “Things Aren’t Right: The Disappearance of the Yuba County Five.” “I came across the Yuba County case for the first time around 2018,” said Wright. “The story was just coming back into the news for whatever reason because of true crime and other unsolved mystery podcasting. It just seemed to catch fire and...

    On Wednesday, I received a letter from Bryan M. Sullivan, a partner at Early Sullivan Wright Gizer & McRae LLP, who is the lawyer of Kevin Morris (who is the lawyer for Hunter Biden). The letter warns that I could face a defamation action if I do not retract (or if I repeat) my criticism of Morris’s representational relationship with Hunter. Putting the personal invectives aside, Sullivan did offer a couple of details on the possible defense of Morris in a pending ethics complaint brought by a conservative legal group. Roughly a year ago, I wrote a column discussing how...

    Singer Gary Wright died at 80 years old on Monday after years of health issues, according to his family. Wright's son, Justin Wright, told TMZ that the musician died Monday morning at his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California, with his family and loved ones by his side. The singer-songwriter was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease more than five years ago and, shortly after that diagnosis, also learned he had Lewy body dementia. Wright's Parkinson's worsened over the past year and ultimately prevented him from speaking or moving around on his own, according to his son.

    Kim Potter, the former Brooklyn Center, Minn., police officer who fatally shot 20-year-old Daunte Wright earlier this year after shouting “Taser!,” on Thursday was found guilty on first-degree and second-degree charges of manslaughter. Officers pulled Wright over in April after noticing that he had been driving with an expired tag and that his rearview mirror had an air freshener illegally hanging from it. Officers tried to arrest him after learning that there was a warrant out for his arrest regarding a misdemeanor weapons violation.

    The Buckeye State became the cockeyed state after botching the design of the iconic Wright Brothers plane while rolling out its new license plates. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine was left red-faced as the birthplace of aviation unveiled the new Sunshine In Ohio license plate on October 21, the fourth new plate in the last 20 years. DeWine wanted the plate to reflect the 'heart and soul' of the Buckeye State as well as the 'beauty' of the seal Ohio, all the diverse cities and the aviation heritage. However, the plate created by the DMV flipped the orientation on the famed...

    Tuesday was election day in a special race to select a successor to Rep. Ron Wright in Texas’ Sixth Congressional District. Wright died from the Wuhan coronavirus. The candidates were Wright’s widow, Susan Wright, and Texas state Rep. Jake Ellzey. Both are conservative Republicans. Susan Wright was the favorite and the leader in polls. She won the most votes in the primary, in which Ellzey barely finished second, just 354 votes ahead of the leading Democrat. In addition, Wright had the endorsement of former president Trump. But Ellzey won the race by a margin of 53-47. How did he do...

    The 20-year-old black man who was fatally shot by a Minnesota police officer during a traffic stop in April was allegedly involved in an armed carjacking and violent assault three weeks before he was killed, according to a new lawsuit. Daunte Wright — who was killed when Officer Kim Potter mistook her gun for a Taser — and an accomplice allegedly jumped 20-year-old Joshua Hodges on March 21 while he was sitting in his car in north Minneapolis, the court papers state.

    Former President Donald Trump claimed victory after his endorsement of a leading GOP candidate shut out Democrats from a congressional special election in Texas. Republicans Susan Wright, the wife of the late Rep. Ron Wright, finished with 19 percent of the vote, while Jake Ellzey garnered 14 percent. Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez finished third with 13 percent and conceded on May 2. “Please explain to the Democrats and RINOs that the reason Texas-06 completely shut out Democrats in Saturday’s Jungle Primary is because of my Endorsement of Susan Wright, who surged last week after receiving it,” the former president said...

    Two Texas Republicans will advance to a congressional runoff race following a crowded special election Saturday that had been House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) one opportunity — out of the six congressional special elections taking place this year — to add a seat to Democrats’ extremely slim House majority. Susan Wright, widow to the late Rep. Ron Wright (R-TX) whose seat the special election was held to fill, received the most votes out of 23 candidates at 19 percent, Decision Desk HQ results showed late Saturday evening. In the week leading up to the race, Wright received a last-minute endorsement...

    Despite last-minute and anonymous robocalls charging her with “murdering her husband” and a well-funded anti-Trump Republican, the widow of the late Republican Rep. Ron Wright topped the crowded race Saturday to fill his seat in Texas’ 6th District. With near-final returns in Sunday morning from the 23-candidate field, Susan Wright had about 24 per cent of the vote. With all candidates regardless of party on the same ballot, the second place was a near-tie (14 per cent each) between Republican State Rep. Jake Ellzey and Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez.

    America is on the verge of anarchy. Every time a black man is killed by police the community finds itself on the edge and the nation wonders if an inferno is about to erupt. This reality dovetailed with a meme I saw a few days ago: “The Biggest Change Since Rodney King is the Video Quality”. While video quality has improved, one thing that hasn’t changed is negative outcomes from resisting arrest. Some of the names Americans know that demonstrate that include: George Floyd, Daunte Wright, Rayshard Brooks and Michael Brown. If the media were being honest they would characterize...

    Of late there have been a number of shooting deaths all of which are tragic but the ones that could easily have been prevented are particularly sad. The two that stand out are the deaths of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo. Daunte Wright was shot when Officer Kim Potter drew the wrong weapon. She meant to tase Daunte Wright but wound up shooting and killing him. The media portrayed him this way Wright's mother described her sonThe mother described her son as "an amazing, loving kid" who "had a big heart," "bright" smile and "loved basketball." "He had a 2-year-old...

    A just-released mugshot of Kim Potter — the former Minnesota cop who fatally shot Daunte Wright after mistaking her gun for her Taser — shows the 26-year veteran looking bare-faced and solemn. Potter is cooling her heels Wednesday at the Hennepin County Jail, where she’s being held without bail pending second-degree manslaughter charges in the death of Wright.
