    The FBI on Tuesday arrested a local attorney and four members of the city council in Toledo, Ohio, for their alleged participation in a bribery and extortion scheme.

    An article published several days ago written by an anonymous attendee made the claim that the management for the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma sabotaged attendance for the campaign rally by President Trump held there last Saturday resulting in thousands of empty seats in the BOK Center and the cancellation of plans for Trump and Vice President Pence to speak to an expected overflow crowd of thousands on a stage set up just outside the arena before speaking at the rally inside.The fire marshal and arena management put attendance at just over 6,000 while the Trump campaign claimed 12,000...

    After years of investigations, Israeli archaeologists now believe that they have uncovered a Byzantine-era Christian town in Galilee. This site has yielded a host of remains and historic artifacts. It is believed that the settlement was probably destroyed during the invasion of the area by the Persians in the 7th century AD. This settlement is offering unparalleled insights into the Christian community during and the Byzantine Empire. The settlement was discovered in 2007 during a construction project on a road in Pi Maẓuva Galilee in Northern Israel . This site was the subject of a salvage excavation before the completion...

    A woman was identified Saturday as a suspect in the fire at the Atlanta Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed by police. The Atlanta Fire Rescue Department announced on Twitter that investigators issued a warrant for Natalie White as a suspect in the arson fire at the Wendy’s earlier this month. The blaze occurred on June 13, the day after a police officer shot and killed Brooks in the parking lot. Officials said the investigation is ongoing as they look for more information about the fire, Reuters reported. Police had responded to the Wendy's after Brooks, a 27-year old Black...
  • Inside the US government’s plans to blow up the moon

    Blow up the moon. It sounds like the grandiose plan of a James Bond villain. Only the idea came, not from a fictional villain, but the government of the United States of America. The secret mission, code-named “Project A119,” was conceived at the dawn of the space race by an Air Force division located at New Mexico’s Kirtland Air Force Base. A June 1959 report entitled “A Study of Lunar Research Flights” outlined plans to explode the bomb on the moon’s “terminator” — the area between the part of the surface that’s illuminated by the sun and the part that’s...

    Reporting by Matt Taibbi ^ | 12 June 2020 | Matt Taibbi
    Sometimes it seems life can’t get any worse in this country. Already in terror of a pandemic, Americans have lately been bombarded with images of grotesque state-sponsored violence, from the murder of George Floyd to countless scenes of police clubbing and brutalizing protesters. Our president, Donald Trump, is a clown who makes a great reality-show villain but is uniquely toolless as the leader of a superpower nation. Watching him try to think through two society-imperiling crises is like waiting for a gerbil to solve Fermat’s theorem. Calls to “dominate” marchers and ad-libbed speculations about Floyd’s “great day” looking down from...

    CHICAGO — Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the city will not tolerate vigilantism after groups of mostly white men patrolled the streets of the Bridgeport neighborhood on Wednesday night in response to a nearby city protest. Multiple streets were blocked in the Bridgeport neighborhood Wednesday night as nearby protests dispersed. Near West Pershing Road, water gushed from an open fire hydrant as small groups gathered on corners. Some of the men held bats. One wore a shirt that said “All Lives Matter,” one sipped a beer and another waved at an officer as he drove by. Additional groups of people,...

    U.S Navy veteran Michael White has been freed by Iran and has left the country on a Swiss government aircraft, AP reports. Why it matters: White spent 683 days detained by the Iranian government. He was the first American known to be detained by Iran since President Trump took office. What they're saying: "For the past 683 days my son, Michael, has been held hostage in Iran by the IRGC and I have been living a nightmare. I am blessed to announce that the nightmare is over, and my son is safely on his way home. I am incredibly grateful...

    The authors 'can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources' A major medical magazine has retracted a study it published that claimed to have found increased mortality in coronavirus patients who took the drug hydroxychloroquine. The Lancet issued the retraction Thursday afternoon after successive days of questions regarding the study and the data underpinning it, both of which came from the medical analytics company Surgisphere. That study, published on May 22, determined that hydroxychloroquine – a drug repeatedly touted by President Trump as a possible viable treatment for the coronavirus – was "associated with an increased...

    Massachusetts attorney general Maura Healey (D.) on Tuesday refused to denounce the violent riots occurring nationwide, likening them to the purifying effects of a forest fire. "Yes, America is burning, but that's how forests grow," Healey said in a speech delivered to the Boston Chamber of Commerce. Healey, who is also the co-chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association, repeated her remarks in a tweet later the same day, adding that Americans need to "seize the opportunity" to rid the country of "institutionalized racism," which she blamed for the violence.

    National Review ^ | May 29, 2020 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    The proof standard for an arrest on a complaint is probable cause that a crime has been committed. Probable cause is also the standard for indictment, but there’s an important difference. Complaints often get dismissed; indictment is that beginning of the formal process that leads to trial and a determination of guilt. Prosecutors thus do not indict unless they believe a rational jury could find guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, a standard more demanding than probable cause. In the typical street-crime case, then, a person is arrested on a complaint and either detained or granted bail. Within a certain statutory...

    A three panel DC Appeals Court Panel, Judge Henderson, Judge Wilkins and Judge Rao have ordered Michael Flynn’s Judge, Emett Sullivan, to respond to the defense petition for a writ of mandamus within ten days: Quoting the U.S. vs Fokker ruling the panel is not responding directly to the Flynn petition with an immediate decision; instead they are requiring Judge Sullivan to explain his decision to engage with extra-party amicus actions despite the DOJ and Flynn defense agreement on the motion to dismiss. The order can be viewed as a smart move by the appeals panel because Judge Sullivan has...

    Re: Your Failure to Find Precedent for Flynn Dismissal Regarding the decision of the Department of Justice to dismiss charges against General Flynn, in your recent call with your alumni, you expressed great concern: “there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.” Here is some help—if truth and precedent represent your true concern. Your statement is entirely false....
