    In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing "clearly false" affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was "shocked" and "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a...

    We want to see Christin Blasey-Ford in handcuffs along with her co-conspirators. Arrest them tomorrow or Saturday and begin prosecution proceeds for perjury, defamation of character, conspiracy to commit treason by subverting lawful governmental process and whatever else can be charged. All of those people need to go to jail. ANYONE who tries to pull that kind of stuff in the future needs to be behind bars. This stuff has got to be stopped now.

    NEW HAVEN — Ending modern day slavery in prisons in the United States was one of the demands made at a rally Saturday in New Haven where about 70 people gathered for speeches and a march in support of a nationwide prison strike for reforms, including more than below minimum wage pay and rehabilitation services. “No justice, no peace,” the crowd chanted in unison, some holding signs, led by Jamarr Jabari of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, New Haven. “It’s time for us to start treating people as human beings, not just for profit,” he said. “We’re fighting for...

    On the heels of a massive fight between fans during the Oakland Raiders second preseason game, an announcement was made about the future home of the Silver and Black. When it comes to fighting among fans, the new Las Vegas stadium will have none of it. The situation is being taken so seriously that the stadium will have a small jail and courtroom to "deal with unruly fans."
  • ATTORNEY: FORMER IT AIDE IMRAN AWAN DESERVES NO JAIL TIME BECAUSE TRUMP, REPUBLICANS WERE MEAN

    An attorney filed a sentencing memo on behalf of former House IT aide Imran Awan, claiming that President Donald Trump, other Republicans, and “conspiratorial media” attacks serve as a sufficient substitute for jail time for his client’s bank fraud conviction. Attorney Chris Gowen, a former aide to Hillary Clinton, argued to Judge Tanya Chutkan, a President Barack Obama-appointee, that Imran should be spared jail, in part because of Trump, who engaged in “incoherent rambling” about the former IT aide. “Considering … the conduct of several government officials, including the president of the United States, Imran Awan respectfully requests this court...

In that...

    A Turkish court ordered on Wednesday U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson, who is being tried on terrorism and spying charges, to remain in detention, rejecting his lawyer's plea for release. The judge said the next hearing in the trial would be on October 12. Brunson, a Christian pastor from North Carolina who has lived in Turkey for more than two decades, was indicted on charges of helping the GĂĽlenist Terror Group (FETĂ–), which Ankara blames for the failed 2016 coup, as well as supporting the PKK terrorists organization. Speaking to reporters in western Izmir province after the ruling, U.S. Charge d'Affaires...
  • Alabama Moves to Limit Sheriffs From Pocketing Jail Food Money

    The New York Times ^ | 11 July 2018 | Alan Blinder
    Alabama’s governor has begun to cut off a gravy train for the state’s sheriffs: the unspent money for prisoners’ meals that the sheriffs have long been allowed to keep for themselves. The practice, born of a bickered-over ambiguity in a state law, has let sheriffs pocket tax dollars that over the decades almost certainly ran into the millions. To curtail the practice, Gov. Kay Ivey ordered in a memorandum to the state comptroller that payments of certain funds related to jail food “no longer be made to the sheriffs personally.” Instead, the governor wrote, the money must be paid to...

    On 16 November 2016, an off-duty security guard, Melvin Stephens, shot and killed a man who charged at him up stairs at his apartment complex. The incident occurred in Austin, Texas. The two had been in a confrontation earlier. The man killed, Dedric Earl, had scissors that were discovered at the scene. Stephens called 911 to report the shooting. Stephens was arrested and jailed because of statements he made to police. Bail was set at $125,000. It was more than Stephens could raise or afford. He spent over one and a half years in jail, from November 2016, to...
  • So, LGBT Activists Do Want to Put Christians in Jail

    During a TV interview in 2011, I quoted the words of a Christian lawyer who said that just as gay activists were once put in jail, they now want to put us in jail. For making this comment, I was vilified by Right Wing Watch, mocked by gay activists, and ridiculed by others. I wonder what those critics are saying today in light of a recently proposed California bill that would send nursing home caregivers to jail for “misgendering” their nursing home patients. As a Daily Caller headline announces, “California Could Start Jailing People Who Don’t Use Transgender Pronouns.”

    At least four police vans responded to the march as it made its way through Leeds. Many supporters brandished "Free Tommy" placards and demonstrators chanted "let Tommy out" at police officers. The march was organised by the group Proud British, which says on Facebook that its purpose is to "voice freedom of speech" and "stop the strain on the NHS, schools and our public services." One supporter of Robinson told a reporter: "Journalist? F*** off — you're all scum". Some protestors were heard making racist chants. Crowds chanted "BBC BBC" in protest at what they see as the corporation's bias...

    TurkeyÂ’s Supreme Electoral Council (YSK) has ruled that a Kurdish candidate for the Turkish presidency cannot phone in to a talk programme from jail, opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet said .

However, his request was rejected on the basis that this was an internal Justice Ministry decision the YSK could not interfere with, even if it might affect the ongoing election.

    Isn’t Tommy Robinson’s life worth protecting with a body cam, Prime Minister Theresa May? Where is Tommy Robinson? A question whose answer should be demanded rather than merely asked. We all know where Prince Harry is but not where Tommy, arrested Friday outside a court in Leeds, England, is. Modern day Merry England has become far more nightmare than fairytale, as it steadily works its way toward ugly police state status.

    A Utah man who has been incarcerated in a Venezuelan jail since 2016 was on a flight home to the U.S., Venezuelan officials said Saturday. Joshua Holt, 26, has been jailed in Venezuela after he traveled to the South American country in the summer of 2016 to marry Thamara Candelo, whom he met on a website for Mormon singles. The two planned to return to the U.S. after getting married, but where jailed in El Hilcolde on what human rights groups said were largely trumped-up charges. “Good news about the release of the American hostage from Venezuela.

    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison said at a Democratic event Monday that Republicans doing “Bible studies” in prisons is hurting Democrats’ chances at winning voters. “You know, back when I was in Minnesota State Legislature, I got the impression that maybe Democrats could possibly have an advantage with folks in this area who might vote for us,” Ellison said. “Not true. We will have to fight for their vote like we do with every other vote because I learned that a lot of Republicans will go to jails and do Bible studies and other things.”
