    BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Justice for Ahmaud Arbery, a black man killed during a pursuit by a white man and his son in Georgia, isn't just prison time for his killers — it's changes in a local justice system that never charged them with a crime, rallygoers said Saturday.
  • Former Watergate prosecutors urge judge to buck Justice Department and not dismiss Michael Flynn case

    CNN ^ | 5/12/20 | Katelyn Polantz, David Shortell
    (CNN) Sixteen former Watergate prosecutors have told a federal judge he has the authority to sentence former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn to prison despite the Justice Department's effort to toss the case. The filings add prominent voices to the backlash against Attorney General William Barr's softening of criminal prosecutions against President Donald Trump's associates. In legal memos sent to the court on Monday and obtained by CNN, the former prosecutors essentially laid out the legal footing they believe Judge Emmet Sullivan has to reject the dismissal request and sentence Flynn, who had pleaded guilty to lying to the...
  • Comey, McCabe slams Justice for dropping Flynn case: 'Pure politics designed to please' Trump

    Former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe slammed the Justice Department’s decision to drop its case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn on charges he lied to the FBI about his contacts with Russians. “The DOJ has lost its way. But, career people: please stay because America needs you. The country is hungry for honest, competent leadership,” Comey tweeted. McCabe said in a statement Flynn had “high level interactions with Russian officials” who he “actively tried to influence.” He also said Flynn had lied about the substance of his talks with Russian officials. “His...

  • Roger Stone Says He’ll Die in Jail Without Pardon, Trump Calls Situation ‘Disgraceful’

    Roger Stone on Friday night said he believes he will die in jail unless he’s pardoned by President Donald Trump. Stone, a longtime friend and former adviser to Trump, was sentenced on Feb. 20 to three years and four months in prison. Stone was convicted on charges including lying to a congressional committee that was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Stone in recent weeks moved for a new trial, pointing out anti-Trump social media posts made by the jury forewoman, and tried getting the presiding judge to recuse herself after she praised the “integrity” of the jurors....

    The Illinois Supreme Court has rejected actor Jussie Smollett's request to dismiss a case in which he's accused of falsely reporting that he was a victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago home. The court on Friday also refused to remove a special prosecutor who filed the charges. Smollett, 37, pleaded not guilty last month to a six-count grand jury indictment in the case. After entering the not guilty pleas, Judge James Linn set bond at $20,000 and released the Empire actor on his own recognizance, ordering him to return to court March 18. Smollett -- who...

    Recently, President Trump tweeted that he felt Roger Stone’s nine-year sentencing recommendation by his own justice department was too harsh. He also pardoned former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. Liberal Democrats immediately joined forces with media voices to react as though the president had just upchucked on America’s apple pie, completely ignoring the true “elephant in the room,” i.e., very real corruption that does exist in some of our nation’s courtrooms. As to Stone, the president was no doubt concerned that a liberal judge—Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee—might be politically motivated to use the justice department’s harsh sentencing recommendation in...
  • 24 states consider bills to ban natural hair discrimination

    EVANSVILLE, Ind., -- Nearly half of state legislatures will consider bills in the near future to protect a person's right to wear hair naturally. The bills -- introduced in 24 states -- are modeled after a California law put into effect Jan. 1 that bans discrimination based on hairstyle. Proponents say employers, and even schools districts, often ban hairstyles historically worn by racial minorities -- like braids, dreadlocks and twists. "Our hairstyles influence the way employers and teachers treat us," said Courtney McKinney, a spokeswoman for the Western Center on Law and Poverty, which advocated for the California law along...

    The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the parents of a 15-year-old boy cannot sue the federal agent who shot him by firing across the border separating the United States and Mexico — a case that inflamed tensions over border security. The ruling was a defeat for the parents of Sergio Hernandez Guereca, who was on the Mexico side when he was killed in 2010 by a Border Patrol agent who fired from the U.S. side of the boundary separating El Paso, Texas, from Juarez, Mexico. The teen, a Mexican national, was playing with three friends in the cement culvert...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who shocked the political world in 2018 when she upset former Democratic Caucus Chairman Joseph Crowley, has inspired six candidates who are looking to follow her example and defeat longtime House Democrats. The effort again put Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, New York Democrat, at odds with party leaders. The leadership’s campaign arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, moved to put the kibosh on insurgent candidacies last year by blacklisting vendors that do business with primary challengers. “Well, 70% of Americans live in a safe seat. They live in a safe Democratic seat or they live in a safe Republican...

    This is a perilous time for a fair and passionate judge to leave the bench. By doing so, they risk having Donald Trump appoint their replacement, and considering Trump’s policies and beliefs, that new appointee is pretty likely to have a harsh anti-immigration stance. But dozens of immigration judges have reported that despite their efforts to stick out the presidency, they’ve just reached their breaking points. The Los Angeles Times spoke with dozens of judges who are quitting or taking early retirement because they simply cannot stomach having to enforce Trump administration policies on immigrants. Immigration Judge Charles Honeyman served...
  • Achieving Christendom Is America’s Best Chance at Overthrowing Abortion, LGBT Reign of Terror

    01/28/2020 8:28:37 PM PST · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 2 replies
    Christendom Is the Solution for the Emptiness of our Nihilistic Society Grave moral problems are tearing the country apart. For many, this is apparent in the form of broken homes, procured abortion, shattered communities and lost Faith. Many people get it right when pointing out the problems. However, they get it wrong when looking for solutions. Some get it wrong because they look for solutions that address symptoms, not causes. Others search for a way out that involves the least possible effort. In these politically correct times, people are told not to offend anyone by their proposals. Thus, they automatically...

    This is Dr. Scott Lively, a pastor of the Black Robed Regiment, retired Constitutional Law Attorney and former two-time Constitutionalist candidate for Governor of Massachusetts. My platform slogan in 2018 was “Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Trump.” My schedule doesn’t allow me to attend the 2nd Amendment rally this week in Virginia, so my contribution to the cause is this ten point prep list for a possible false flag incident at this rally or a future one. We know that both the Marxist elites and their useful-idiot “Antifa” armies are desperate to remove Trump from office and their Russia/Ukraine Impeachment Strategy is failing....

    For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about...

    Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby traveled to St. Louis, Missouri, Tuesday and joined other black, female prosecutors to speak out against a political and law enforcement establishment that she says has attacked her, undermined her work for reform, and sought to push her from office. Mosby pledged solidarity with St. Louis’ top prosecutor Kim Gardner who filed a federal lawsuit alleging political attacks by her own city leaders and police union. “The vitriol, the personal and the professional attacks, particularly against black, female prosecutors is unprecedented,” Mosby told the crowd. “The individuals making decisions about who’s going to be charged,...

    Top prosecutors from across the country are expected to gather in St. Louis Tuesday to expose what they say are coordinated and racist efforts to block criminal justice reform. They're supporting the city's chief prosecutor, Kim Gardner, who filed an unprecedented federal lawsuit Monday night against her own city and its main police union. Gardner claims she's being forced out. The union called the lawsuit "the last act of a desperate woman." Gardner is the first African-American circuit attorney in St. Louis, elected two years after the protests and unrest in Ferguson. She and other black female prosecutors from seven...

    A twisted leftist was sentenced on Thursday to 90 days in jail for spitting on a 67-year-old, MAGA-hat wearing Trump supporter in October. The surprising justice meted out to Matthias George Ajple was attributable at least in part because the crime was caught in on camera in living color at Hurricane Grill & Wings in Vero Beach, Florida. The registered Democrat will not only sit and stew in the Indian River County Jail for three months, but he will also serve 12 months on probation, pay a fine of $695, and fork out restitution in the amount of $155 to...

    The Relationship Between Social Justice and Impeachment I have not found a definition of “social justice” that conforms to the Constitution. Defining social justice by example is better. America achieves justice by guaranteeing every citizen “due process in law”. The guarantee is that the accused may challenge the evidence and witnesses against him and offer his own evidence and witnesses. The accused does not need to prove innocence; the task is for the courts to prove guilt. Learning that Social Justice offers better justice over existing due process justice guaranteed by the Constitution is intriguing. So of course the first...
