    Last Monday night, President Donald Trump announced Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Over the coming weeks, we will get to witness a circus with politicians and the media competing with each other to see who can say the most outrageous thing about the candidate nominated and highlight who they would have nominated. We will then witness the main event – the hearings in the Senate where Kavanaugh will be asked questions with an agenda and a bias. Below are 6 things he (or any future nominee) should say, but will he? Ideology The folks...

    The Senate on Wednesday confirmed Brian Benczkowski as the Department of Justice’s Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division. According to the Washington Post, the Senate voted 51 to 48, despite “the objection of Democrats who worried about his representation of a Russian bank and lack of prosecutorial experience.” Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia was the only Democrat to vote for Benczkowki's confirmation. “Benczkowski acknowledged briefly performing legal work for Alfa Bank, which has ties to Russian government officials, in 2017,” reports NPR, which also noted Benczkowski helped manage the daily affairs of the Justice Department late in the...

    A federal judge rejected prosecutors’ request Tuesday to reconsider her dismissal of the case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and friend Ryan Payne. U.S. District Judge Gloria M. Navarro dismissed conspiracy charges against the four men on Jan. 8 after finding that prosecutors had acted “with prejudice” throughout the trial, The Oregonian reported. Federal prosecutors violated federal law and failed to share evidence favorable to the defendants case with the court. “The Court’s finding of outrageous government conduct was not in error,” Navarro wrote in her 11-page ruling, obtained by The Oregonian. “On the contrary, a universal...

    **SNIP** I sat flabbergasted in the courtroom in Washington as the plea agreement was entered. I spent the last year interviewing hundreds of people and chasing leads for my upcoming book –titled “Spies in Congress” – about the alleged spy ring believed led by Awan that may have operated in the offices of more than 40 Democratic members of Congress. If not for my extensive research on this case, I might have assumed the government just couldn’t find enough evidence to make a solid case against Awan on more serious charges than bank fraud. When I asked Justice Department prosecutor...

    It’s safe to say that the left is in full-blown panic mode over the Supreme Court vacancy and have already begun viciously targeting possible Trump pick and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett over her conservative values, her Catholic faith, and, most of all, her gender.  A Tuesday afternoon CNN Newsroom segment illustrated that with guest and Daily Beast contributing editor Erin Gloria Ryan asserting that, if President Trump selects a woman, they “should be known as the Aunt Lydia of the Supreme Court” in reference to a villain from liberal dystopian show The Handmaid’s Tale. In addition,...

Obama said in a 2015 interview with CBS News that he first learned of Clinton's use of the private server "at the same time everybody else learned it through news reports." "That's nonsense," Bongino said Saturday on "Fox & Friends." "Obama's clearly not telling the truth here." ...

    Once a lofty concept, the term social justice has been hijacked and exploited by the political left to radically transform America and bully Americans into forfeiting many basic rights in deference to the left’s agenda. Intoning social justice has proven to be a sure-proof formula for silencing average Americans, thereby providing the left with endless societal victories. After all, who wants to be accused of standing in the way of social justice? Most of what passes today for social justice is actually the Marxist/Marcuse/Gramsci leftist playbook wrapped in appealing religious phraseology and platitudes, a framework for never-ceasing revolution and rebellion....

    New York interim Attorney General Barbara Underwood took issue with President Trump’s recent pardons, saying they “are undermining the rule of law.” Underwood was particularly aggrieved by Trump’s pardon of conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza, who was sent to prison for a 2012 illegal campaign contribution. “The fact that Mr. D’Souza was the only person to actually have to spend time in jail for this type of offense was an important example to others who might be tempted to break this law,” she said. “The lengthy list of those who got away with paying fines made it even more important that...

    This is a story of a rape accusation that would not die and a misshapen version of college justice meted out in three chapters. Let’s begin with two Michigan State students looking to hook up in March 2015, mess around and perhaps have sex. Soon after, the woman accuses the man, Keith Mumphery, who would become a pro football receiver, of sexual assault in her dorm room. The police investigate. Mumphery turns over the text messages from his phone and provides a DNA swab. Prosecutors conduct interviews. The accuser does not return calls. They decline to prosecute.

    The Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security entered into an agreement Friday aimed at stopping U.S. companies from favoring foreign workers with visas over U.S. workers, according to documents first obtained by the Washington Examiner. Justice and Homeland Security officials hope the tighter union, made official Friday through a memorandum of understanding, leads to quicker detection of U.S. employers who discriminate against U.S. workers, as well as quicker punishment for immigrants who abuse or commit fraud... Hiring "temporary foreign visa workers over available, qualified U.S. workers may be discriminating in violation" of U.S. law, documents detailing the joint agreement...

    Bill and Hillary are at a Yankees home game, sitting in the first row, with the Secret Service people directly behind them. One of the Secret Service guys leans forward and whispers something to Bill. At first, Clinton stares at the guy, looks at Hillary, looks back at the agent, and shakes his head "no". The agent then says, "Mr. President, it was a unanimous request of the entire team, from the owner to the bat boy." Bill hesitates but begins to change his mind when the agent tells him the fans would love it. Bill shrugs his shoulders and...

    The feud that has simmered for months between Congress and the Justice Department erupted this week into a cage match. That’s because the House is homing in on the goods. Until this week, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and fellow institutionalists at the department had fought Congress’s demands for information with the tools of banal bureaucracy—resist, delay, ignore, negotiate. But Mr. Rosenstein took things to a new level on Tuesday, accusing House Republicans of “threats,” extortion and wanting to “rummage” through department documents. A Wednesday New York Times story then dropped a new slur, claiming “Mr. Rosenstein and top FBI...

    "While James Comey jet sets across the country selling books and espousing misinformation about our President, he is hiding from the truth. Comey, like many other Obama appointees, including Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch, has ignored our laws and have gotten away with it. This bypass of due diligence has been dismissively overlooked due to their connections to high-powered, politically-connected friends. This cannot be tolerated. The truth must prevail and justice must be served. Today, we see the law ignored for the political elite while they are being bestowed with special treatment and free passes. This became abundantly clear in...

    This week in an unprecedented move, Special Counsel Robert Mueller engineered a raid on President Trump's long-time lawyer Michael Cohen that seized all of his files and documents. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lauded this piercing of the President's and Cohen Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and denial of due process, calling them "warranted exceptions." As ACLU spokesman Bertram Petty explained "the Bill of Rights is intended to protect innocent people from tyrannical abuses.

    “The chief priests and the whole Council kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, in order that they might put Him to death” (Matthew 26:59). The only evidence of guilt against Jesus was man-made and contrived. The essence of the Jews’ ancient legal system is found in the Lord’s words to Moses and Israel: “You shall not distort justice; you shall not be partial” (Deut. 16:19). Therefore, it is truly amazing to consider what twisted measures the Jewish leaders resorted to in their trial of Jesus. The Council, or Sanhedrin, was authorized to judge only those cases in which...
