  • Mel Reynolds Vows to Serve Jail Term and Leave the Country: "I'm Done With America."

    Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds is headed back to jail, but for a short enough time — four months — that he said hopes to be living in Africa by Christmas. “I’m done with America. I’m going to do this, and I’m going home — to Africa. … I’ve given up on America,” Reynolds told reporters after U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman sentenced him to six months imprisonment for his failure to file income tax returns. “It’s really a tragedy you’ve squandered the opportunities you’ve had and the type of person you could have been,” the judge told Reynolds. Reynolds,...

    Trials riding is a test of talents in maneuvering a standard road or mountain bike over rugged trails and uneven obstacles. Several well known riders are continually raising the bar for each other to compete outside of organized events. When it comes to combining talent, guts and a bit of insanity, Italian thrill seeker Vittorio Brumotti is traveling the world and becoming wealthy with his extraordinary balance and cycling mastery.

    After seeing their God-given and Constitutionally-guaranteed rights being trampled on by the over-reaching Federal alphabet agencies, people across the nation rallied to defend the rights our country was founded on. Videos on network news stations and around the internet depicted an elderly woman being thrown to the ground by law enforcement, a man being tazed repeatedly, and a “first amendment zone” set up miles away for protesters to stay out of the way of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). These citizens rightfully feared another Waco or Ruby Ridge encounter, and believed that citizens showing up in force, with cameras...

    In June 2015, Turkish journalist Can Dundar published photographs and posted a video on his newspaper’s website showing that the government had been secretly trucking arms to Syrian rebels and disguising the shipments as humanitarian aid deliveries. The story was a major embarrassment for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who had repeatedly denied earlier reports of weapons shipments. “Here are the weapons that Erdogan says were not,” read the headline in Cumhuriyet, the 50,000-circulation newspaper Dundar had just taken over as editor-in-chief. Vowing that Dundar would “pay a high price” and “I won’t let him go,” Erdogan filed a personal criminal...

    Last week, jury selection began in the case against James Holmes for the 2012 Aurora, Colorado theater shooting. Deliberations on jury selection alone could last until May or June and trial could last another five months. The jurors chosen will have to grapple with intense emotional and legal questions over this extended period of time. And because of Colorado’s outdated jury wage laws, the jurors may also have to face significant financial stress. In lengthy trials, Colorado law only offers $50 per day to jurors, many of whom may have to rely on this compensation instead of their salaries or...
  • Wrongly Convicted By Military Justice System,Amer Soldiers Deserve as Much Att. as GITMO Detainees

    So much attention has been paid to the matter of whether or not detainees at Guantanamo Bay should be released and allowed to return to their home countries, but little has been paid to American warfighters wrongly convicted in the military justice system. Wrongly-convicted Americans deserve at least as much attention as GITMO detainees, don’t they? EXAMPLE: Two years ago this week, the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces denied former Army Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart‘s appeal of the wrongful conviction and eight-year prison sentence handed down by a court-martial panel in Germany almost 39...

    The World Health Organization (WHO) set out plans on Friday for speeding up development and deployment of experimental Ebola vaccines, saying hundreds of thousands of doses should be ready for use in West Africa by the middle of 2015. The Geneva-based United Nations health agency confirmed that two leading vaccine candidates are already in human clinical trials, and said another five experimental vaccines were also being developed and would begin clinical trials next year.

    The Washington Times ^ | October 20, 2014 | Tom Howell, Jr.
    The pitch was intriguing: U.S. health officials wanted to fast-track trials for an Ebola vaccine and sounded the call for volunteers. Charles Sullivan called up the hotline on a whim, figuring the National Institutes of Health already had filled its queue and wouldn’t need him. But he was accepted for three rounds of shots of a deactivated virus, a year’s worth of blood analysis and a $900 check for his trouble. The clinical trial went well, and the vaccine seemed promising. A decade later, the country is still waiting for a vaccine amid a worldwide Ebola outbreak, and Mr. Sullivan...
  • Egypt sentences 683 to death in another mass trial

    Among those convicted and sentenced to death on Monday was Mohamed Badie, the Brotherhood's spiritual guide. If his sentence is confirmed, it would make him the most senior Brotherhood figure sentenced to death since one of the group's leading ideologues, Sayed Qutb, was sentenced and executed in 1966. In announcing the 683 death sentences for violence and the killing of policemen, Judge Said Youssef on Monday also said he was referring his ruling to the Grand Mufti, the nation's top Islamic official — a requirement under Egyptian law, but one that is considered a formality. It does, however, give a...

    First published on Raymond Ibrahim site. By Enza Ferreri The issue of taqiyya – the religious permission, indeed virtue, of Muslim deception to infidels for the good of Islam – is such a uniquely crucial aspect of the relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims, especially, like in the West, when the former are a minority and the latter a majority, that there have been at least a couple of trials in Europe revolving around it, one recent and the other current. In May 2013 there was a legal case in Italy in which a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood,...

    Trial By Media and More This country has entered a new era of justice. Actually, it goes all the way back to the trial of O.J. Simpson, Jodi Arias and now George Zimmerman. More and more the media have begun trying these cases on television and using public opinion and a high degree of emotionalism. Channel HLN, headline News, Nancy Grace has been prominent in this. Now I believe that we will enter a new era that can be very beneficial to the justice system. That of using the television media to actually try criminal cases in vivo. Before you...

    Federal government to buy closed Ill. prison for $165M, vows will not house Gitmo detainees Article by: SOPHIA TAREEN , Associated Press Updated: October 2, 2012 - 1:23 PM CHICAGO - The federal government has agreed to buy the closed Thomson Correctional Center in western Illinois for $165 million after the sale was held up for three years, state leaders announced Tuesday. Many Illinois leaders — including U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and Gov. Pat Quinn who spoke to The Associated Press ahead of a news conference to announce the sale — supported the purchase because they said it would bring...

    Republican Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and John McCain (Ariz.) battled on the Senate floor Tuesday over a proposed amendment to the pending defense authorization bill that could allow American citizens who are suspected of terrorism to be denied a civilian trial. Paul argued the amendment, which is cosponsored by McCain, "puts every single American citizen at risk" and suggested that if the amendment passes, "the terrorists have won." “Should we err today and remove some of the most important checks on state power in the name of fighting terrorism, well then the terrorists have won," Paul argued, "[D]etaining American citizens...

      Arrest Al-Awlaki and Put Him on Trial? David C. Stolinsky Oct. 6, 2011 On Sept. 30, Anwar Al-Awlaki was killed in an airstrike by an unmanned U.S. drone. He had been located in Yemen by U.S. intelligence. Al-Awlaki was born here, but his parents took him back to Yemen when he was seven, so he had joint U.S. and Yemeni citizenship. Awlaki was the imam at the Maryland mosque where Major Hassan was radicalized, then went on to murder 14 Americans at Fort Hood. He also had contact with three of the 9/11 hijackers, as well as the...

    This is the 10th anniversary of what some have said is a seminal event in our national history. I would argue it was less a seminal event, and more an awakening as to the danger posed to the West since the 17th century when the armies of Kara Mustafa – capitalizing on the previous century’s work of warlord Suleiman the Magnificent – attacked Christian armies across eastern Europe. Suleiman’s and Mustafa’s wars were Jihads against the West. And though stopped at the Gates of Vienna in 1683, that Jihad has never ceased. But the enemy has been unable to effectively...
