    It is increasingly clear that we are in an almost "1984" scenario where corruption, collusion, and a ruling class dominated by desire for power, control, and their own self-enrichment, by any means available, run the show. And, a show it is, one that even George Orwell could have scarcely imagined. How can we deal with this, and effect real, lasting, systemic reform? (Serious replies only, please.)

La Crosse County Circuit Judge Ramona Gonzalez at the start on Mark Topness’ trial on Tuesday for 10 crimes told three uniformed La Crosse police officers that they could not wear their firearms or duty belts in the courtroom. “It was the first time I’ve ever been asked to disarm,” officer Ethan Purkapile said. “I was definitely concerned because it compromised my ability to protect the DA’s office staff, the jurors, the circuit court staff,...

    A new state law that prohibits discrimination against transgender people in public restrooms is “punishing” the protected religious speech of churches and pastors, a conservative Christian organization claims in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday. Alliance Defending Freedom, based in Scottsdale, Arizona, said it sued on behalf of four Massachusetts churches to protect their right to operate their facilities “in a manner that doesn’t violate their core religious beliefs.” The lawsuit names Democratic state Attorney General Maura Healey and members of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination as defendants. The law, which was signed by Republican Gov. Charlie Baker in July and...

    A Travis County jury returned a not guilty verdict in Bryan Juarez’s murder trial. After resuming discussions on Monday morning, the jury deliberated for 10 ˝ hours over two days. Juarez, 23, was on trial for shooting Christopher Burton at an East Austin apartment complex on the evening of Aug. 3, 2015. The altercation was sparked by Burton calling Juarez a gay slur. In Friday’s closing arguments, prosecutors said Juarez was fueled by anger and alcohol when he grabbed a gun from his apartment and confronted Burton about the slur.

In addition to many other racially discriminatory laws, there were job reservation laws that determined who could hold what jobs by race. My lecture sought to produce the...

Rule 8.4(g) provides that it is professional misconduct for an attorney to show “discrimination based on race, sex, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or socioeconomic status in conduct related to the...

    California has become the latest battleground in a nationwide push to relax or eliminate the statutes of limitations on sexual-assault crimes, recently passing a bill that would make it the 17th state to allow rape victims to pursue charges at any point after an attack. Gov. Jerry Brown must approve or veto the measure by month's end. State Sen. Connie M. Leyva, the bill's author, said Democratic and Republican legislators supported the measure. On Tuesday, she joined rape victims, activists and women's rights attorney Gloria Allred at the statehouse in Sacramento to urge Brown to end the state's 10-year limit.

As Live Action News’ Calvin Freiburger reported, less than 24 hours later, West Virginia’s House and Senate overwhelmingly voted to override the veto. According to NRL News, the ban on dismemberment abortions was supported by 100% of West Virginia’s women senators and 83% of women delegates. The ban received extensive bipartisan support, and State Sen. Ryan Ferns argues that the ban is just common sense legislation. “We’re talking about ripping...

    Donald Trump was correct when he said a woman who had an outlawed abortion would likely be punished. However, the most likely way of ending abortions would be through regulation of those providing medical treatment. Chris Matthews question implied that abortion would become a criminal offense. In that case the woman as a participant in the “crime” would be subject to prosecution probably as an accessory, an accomplice or a “co-conspirator”. The courts might not allow prosecution unless the woman was potentially subject to prosecution. In such a legal environment prosecutors might use the offering of immunity from prosecution to...

    It is happening again. They've got it down to a science and it works every time, so why should they stop? As much as you’re paying attention to what actually happened - PayPal hops on the corporate self-righteousness/pandering bandwagon by welching on a commitment it made to expand in the state mere weeks ago - pay attention to how USA Today approaches the story, particularly the words it uses: PayPal is canceling its planned North Carolina expansion due to the state’s new anti-gay law, just two weeks after making the initial announcement.

    Attorney General Roy Cooper, who is challenging Gov. Pat McCrory for governor, spoke out against House Bill 2 Tuesday morning during a press conference. Cooper said his office, "will not defend the constitutionality of the discrimination in House Bill 2." McCrory signed the bill, called the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, last Wednesday after it was passed by the North Carolina Senate. The law was in response to Charlotte's nondiscrimination ordinance that allowed transgender individuals to use public bathrooms of the sex with which they identify.

    The Associated Press — The Supreme Court has agreed to referee a pricy patent dispute between Samsung and Apple. The justices said Monday they will review a $399 million judgment against South Korea-based Samsung for illegally copying patented aspects of the look of Apple's iPhone. Apple, based in Cupertino, California, and Samsung are the top two manufacturers of increasingly ubiquitous smartphones. The two companies have been embroiled in patent fights for years. The justices will decide whether a court can order Samsung to pay Apple every penny it made from the phones at issue, even though the disputed features are...

    Subject: Political Violence During some Trump political rallies there have been protesters who disrupted a lawful meeting and were then physically attacked. Surely the attendees were overwhelmingly Republicans, duh, and thus the protesters must be . . . Democrats, double duh. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: it’s the Republican attendees who committed the acts of violence against the protesters. Sorry, it’s well established in law that one can’t utter fighting words or egg another on (create the situation) and then claim innocence or self-defense when there’s retaliation. The Democrat elitist class is showing its true colors – they are...
