    Update: Stricken with Pneumonia, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg about to Retire from the Supreme Court. https://www.smobserved.com/story/2019/01/07/news/stricken-with-pneumonia-ruth-bader-ginsburg-about-to-retire-from-supreme-court/3780.html Editor's Note; We first posted this story in September, 2018. Sadly we were correct, as Justice Ginsburg underwent surgery on December 15th to remove a cancerous growth from her lungs. We are reposting it since so many people contacted us to ask if it was true, which sadly, it is. She did not appear for oral arguments on January 7, 2019, & it is becoming increasingly clear that she will not ever return to the bench. https://www.smobserved.com/story/2018/12/20/news/snopes-decries-observer-as-fake-news-for-posting-story-that-justice-ginsburg-has-cancer-sadly-we-were-right/3766.html While the Nation is preoccupied with the...
  • POWELL: How Did The Wife Of A Mueller Protege End Up Hearing Mueller’s Case?

    Would it surprise you to learn that the judge presiding over a case of Robert Mueller’s is married to a Mueller protege? When Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted Concord, a Russian company that didn’t even exist, it landed on District of Columbia Judge Dabney Friedrich’s docket. At first, it appeared as though Friedrich had a handle on the malarkey taking place. At the initial hearings, she denied the special counsel’s request to delay everything. She rightfully questioned the validity of the charges — especially the unprecedented charge of “conspiracy against the United States.” As many noted, the Mueller squad did...

    The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday it will not get involved in the state of Connecticut’s fight to reinstate Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel’s conviction for the 1975 murder of 15-year-old Martha Moxley in Greenwich. The Connecticut Supreme Court vacated Skakel’s 2002 conviction and 20-to-life sentence last May and ordered he be entitled to a new trial on charges he beat Moxley to death with a golf club. The court found Skakel was deprived of his right to effective assistance of counsel because his attorneys did not investigate a potential alibi witness who could have helped his defense. Skakel, 58, is...
  • Justice Dept. asks for delay in (unconstitutional) ACA case due to shutdown

    UPI ^ | 1/07/19 | Clyde Hughes
    Jan. 7 (UPI) -- The Justice Department has asked a federal judge in Texas to delay a motion in a lawsuit connected with the Affordable Care Act because of the ongoing partial government shutdown. Federal attorneys filed the request Friday, but it did not appear on the court docket until Monday. The request stems from House Democrats filing a motion asking the lower chamber to intervene in the lawsuit against the ACA, filed by Republican officials. The Democrats took over the House last week and made their request to support the ACA one of their first orders of business. U.S....

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A federal judge says a company owned by Gov. Jim Justice and his family continues to flout court directives even though it is already in contempt. Judge Irene Berger U.S. District Judge Irene Berger has ordered Justice Energy to provide greater financial information by Jan. 25 and to make its employees available for depositions by Feb. 15. The order was filed Wednesday and applies to a $1.23 million contempt order for Justice Energy. The filing was first reported by the Charleston Gazette-Mail. Berger attached a pointed footnote to the order. “The Defendant’s decision to simply ignore Court...

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | 12/20/2018 | ABBIE VANSICKLE and MANUEL VILLA
    Over the last decade, California has led the nation in reducing its prison population. The state has shortened sentences and diverted some offenders to the counties for incarceration and supervision, transforming California’s criminal justice system into what supporters hope will become a humane model around the country. But amid the changes, crime has increased in recent years, sparking debate about the causes and giving ammunition to those leading a new effort to roll back some of the reforms. An analysis by the Marshall Project and the Los Angeles Times found that California’s crime rates remain near historic lows, but overall...

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | December 22, 2018 | Paul Sperry
    John Huber has developed almost mythical status among pro-Trump tweeters since former Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed him to investigate why the FBI spied on Trump’s aides and whether they protected Hillary Clinton and her foundation over alleged misdeeds. They hoped the Salt Lake City-based prosecutor would aggressively expose the malfeasance that has already led to firings and resignations among the bureau’s top brass. Instead, more than a year since his appointment, Huber’s lack of traction on either front is leading many once hopeful supporters to dismiss his investigation as a “sham." RealClearInvestigations has learned from potential witnesses, their lawyers...

    QuodVerum ^ | 12/21/18 | REX
    By-sheer-coincidence, the judges who managed the Wolfe docket in the District Court of Columbia are all hardline Democrats. As Rex explains, a cynic could argue that Lady Justice never stood a chance. As we now know, James Wolfe, the veteran security chief of the Senate Intelligence Committee (SSCI), received a sentence of just two months for 'lying to the FBI', which now appears to be the 'go to' felony for the Department of Justice, when it wants to frame people, or cover up corruption. It's an astonishingly lenient outcome for Wolfe, who in March 2017 either conspired with others, or...

    The controversial probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election has cost taxpayers more than $25 million. Special counsel Robert Mueller and those working for him spent more than $4.5 million in the period between April 1 and Sept. 30 alone, the counsel’s office said in a budget expenditure report (pdf) published on Dec. 14. That included more than $2.8 million in compensation and benefits for Mueller and his team and nearly $1 million in rent, communications, and utilities. The group also spent $580,098 on travel and transportation.

    Last week, as a freshman class filtered through the halls of Congress for orientation, Fox News sounded the alarm about four of the elected members and the “radical new Democratic ideas” they’d come to advance: free health care, free college, the abolishment of ICE and an infrastructure project designed to address impending climate catastrophe that they’re calling the “Green New Deal.” Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and New York’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are emblematic of a midterm election in which more women, more people of color and more progressives were elected than ever before....

    Dash cam video shows a Grand Rapids Police officer taking out a fleeing homicide suspect by running into him with a police cruiser. MLive reports that Adam Nolin allegedly “killed his girlfriend, Tia Randall, 27, at their Wyoming home before he led police on a high-speed chase and shootout that ended on the expressway.” The suspect crashed while navigating a turn during the chase. He then exited his vehicle and allegedly opened fire on police before being run down by an officer:

    CNN Politics ^ | November 8, 2018 | Jeremy Diamond and Sarah Westwood
    President Donald Trump is considering former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to replace fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, sources familiar with the matter said. Trump fired Sessions on Wednesday without immediately naming a replacement, instead installing Sessions' chief of staff Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Christie, a former US attorney, could face similar calls to the ones Sessions faced to recuse himself from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation given his role as a prominent 2016 campaign surrogate for Trump. Christie was initially considered as a contender for the attorney general position during the...

    It looks like we are finally getting close to the end of the Mueller probe. A report in Politico suggests that what skeptics have argued for more than a year and a half is true: namely, that Mueller and his team have not found any smoking-gun evidence of "collusion" between Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government because no such collusion took place.

    The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross cannot be questioned in lawsuits about a citizenship question that will appear on the 2020 census, which halted a scheduled deposition. Dozens of states and big cities have brought about lawsuits over the question. They argue that a citizenship question will keep illegal aliens from participating in the census, which would drastically shift state and federal representation and dollars. Of course, that would be negatively impact Democrats. A federal court in New York had previously said Ross had to provide a deposition as part of the lawsuits brought about...
