Court To Cop: You Took 80 Days Away From A Person's Life With A Baseless Warrant, So We're Taking Your Immunity
Post Date: 2017-02-22 14:06:55 by Deckard
from the Munday-is-no-Joe-Friday dept In 2009, April Yvette Smith was arrested on drug dealing charges and spent 80 days in jail. The charges were ultimately dropped by the district attorney, but by the time it happened, Smith had already lost her job. The same can't be said for the officer who obtained her arrest warrant. His job was always secure. The only thing he's lost -- seven years after the fact -- is his immunity from Smith's civil rights lawsuit. The chain of events leading to Smith's wrongful arrest are as horrible as they are stupid. Somewhere between Barney Fife and the banal evil of law enforcement ineptitude lies Officer Jason Munday. It starts with a ...
Congressional Republicans Flail and Fail (can't quit loving ObamaCare, illegal aliens, global thievery & skulduggery)

Drudge Put It Perfectly: Congressional Republicans Flail and FailIncompetence hinders party from accomplishing Trumps agendaSpeaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan Alex Wong/Getty Images On February 8, 2017, Matt Drudge tweeted, No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts! and Republican party should be sued for fraud. NO discussion of tax cuts now. Drudge was spot on. This week, Sen. Rand Paul (my former boss, it should be pointed out) stormed out of a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he heard talk of keeping Obamacares Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits. Paul worried these tax credits would be a Republican-created entitlement program. ...
A Big Shoe Just Dropped
Post Date: 2017-02-19 17:38:51 by Willie Green
I don't know how much attention it's received. But the appearance of the name of Felix Sater in this new article in the Times is one of the biggest shoes I've seen drop on the Trump story in some time.The new story explains that a group of Trump operatives, including top lawyer Michael Cohen and fired former campaign manager Paul Manafort, along with a pro-Putin Ukrainian parliamentarian named Andrii V. Artemenko and Mr. Sater are pushing President Trump on a 'peace plan' for Russia and Ukraine. Cohen recently met with Sater and Artemenko; and Cohen agreed to personally deliver the peace plan (actually a sealed envelope with documents detailing it) to the President ...

He did not make the money alone, Marroquín elaborated in an ...
The Most Dangerous National Security Threat That Donald Trump Is Ignoring
Post Date: 2017-02-13 19:32:00 by Willie Green
Donald Trump was elected president while employing white supremacist, anti-immigrant, and anti-Muslim rhetoric. Now the U.S. executive branch is actively seeking to reduce federal efforts to fight right-wing extremism by removing white supremacist groups from U.S. government countering violent extremism (CVE) programs.Earlier this month, the Trump administration proposed it would repurpose the Countering Violent Extremism task force to focus only on Islamic extremists, considering renaming it Countering Radical Islamic Extremism or Countering Islamic Extremism.Its hard not to see the hand of Steve Bannonthe White House chief strategist and senior ...
Trump Makes Up Murder Stats to Push for More Government Power
Post Date: 2017-02-10 18:51:26 by hondo68
Donald Trump appeared deeply confused this week as the president declared today that "the murder rate in our country is the highest it's been in 47 years."Perhaps Trump confused the word "highest" with "lowest" since he would be far closer to the truth if he said the homicide rate in the US is "the lowest it's been in 47 years." On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly claimed that crime and murder rates are at historic highs in spite of all evidence to the contrary. Trump is likely able to get away with this because, although homicide rates have declined substantially over the past twenty years, Pew ...
Bombshell Report Suggests Trump's National Security Adviser Is Dishonest and a Threat to US Policy
Post Date: 2017-02-10 10:19:29 by Willie Green
He also may not be very bright. The Trump-Russia scandal has so far resided in the territory between smoke and fire. Donald Trump associates have reportedly been investigated for interactions with Russia, but the FBI has not released information on these contacts. Trump has pushed an America First policy, but he has curiously denied or downplayed the US intelligence conclusion that Vladimir Putin mounted an extensive covert campaign to subvert the 2016 election to benefit Trump and instead has cultivated an odd bromance with the Russian autocrat. A series of memos written by a former counterintelligence officer contained allegations that Russian intelligence had spent years cultivating or ...
Former Nixon lawyer predicts Trump presidency 'will end in calamity'
Post Date: 2017-01-31 11:10:22 by Willie Green
The former White House counsel to Richard Nixon the only U.S. president to resign from office is warning that Donald Trumps tenure will end in calamity. John Dean, the lawyer the FBI described as the master manipulator of the cover-up in the Watergate scandal, took to Twitter on Monday night to describe Trumps statement on Sally Yates, a Barack Obama appointee serving as acting attorney general, as nasty and a new low. Trump fired Yates on Monday after she said she would not defend his controversial immigration and refugee executive order in court. A Muslim advocacy group filed a lawsuit earlier that day arguing ...
Steve Bannon registered to vote in two states despite Trump's cries of 'voter fraud'
Post Date: 2017-01-25 10:36:20 by Willie Green
Presidents senior adviser is registered in both New York and Florida, as president falsely claims in tweet that such an arrangement amounts to fraud A senior White House adviser to Donald Trump is registered to vote in two different states, a practice that the US president wrongly claimed amounted to electoral fraud on Wednesday as he called for an inquiry. Stephen Bannon registered to vote in New York shortly before the presidential election last year, after the Guardian disclosed that he was registered to vote at a vacant house in Florida where his ex-wife had once lived. Bannon, registered to vote at a rented apartment in New York, cast his ballot for Trump in that state, ...

Former House Speaker Says Child He Raped Should Pay Back Hush Money Since He Broke His Silence
Post Date: 2017-01-23 13:56:00 by Deckard
In April of last year, Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House and admitted child rapist, was sentenced to 15 months in prison for paying his victims to keep quiet. Hastert was sentenced, not for raping children, but for illegally structuring bank transactions in an effort to cover up his sexual abuse of young members of a wrestling team he coached. Now, this sicko pedophile is trying to get back that hush money. Because one of the boys he raped broke his silence, in spite of the $1.7 million in hush money Hastert gave him, this pedophile politician wants his money back. When the victim, known only as Individial A, broke his silence, Hasterts child rapes were ...
Donald Trump ‘will conform with the Constitution or we will remove him’

Richard Painter, the former chief ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush, warned on Monday that Donald Trump will be impeached if he continues refusing to conform to the U.S. Constitution. In a Monday interview on Australias ABC News, Painter said that he hoped that Trump would figure this out when it came to understanding the Constitutions ban on receiving profits from foreign governments and the protections it gives to the rights of Americans. He did what he needed to do to be a successful businessman, he figured that out and he now has to figure out how to be a successful president, Painter explained. But he is going to need to ...
Hillary's pardon status?
Post Date: 2017-01-20 11:43:04 by Hank Rearden
Obviously, no pardon for Hillary Milhaus Felon has been announced as of 20 minutes prior to the swearing-in of our new President. So some thoughts weebled into my alleged mind: - Could a pardon be issued but announcement held back until after the Inauguration? I assume one could be, it would be perfectly valid and lawful, but politically it would be a big black mark on Odumbass, not that he cares. - Is there a side deal between Odumbass and Trump to leave her alone, no pardon needed? Maybe, but Jeff Sessions and Congress might have something to say about that, and a side deal wouldn't have the force of law, unless Trump pardons her. Not a good way to start his term, so - doubtful. - ...

When A Fugitive Dies, "Blue Privilege" Makes All the Difference
Post Date: 2017-01-16 11:21:53 by Deckard
Pleasant Grove, Utah resident Ashleigh Holloway Best killed herself in the early hours of May 17, 2016 when she lost control of the stolen 2002 Lincoln Navigator she was driving and plowed it into a tree. The man who was pursuing the thief, Kenneth Lee Drew, was the authorized representative of the vehicles lawful owner. On January 11, Drew was sentenced to prisonbecause the thief foolishly killed herself. If Drew had been a government-employed law enforcement officer, rather than a private repossession agent, he would likely have received a hazardous duty commendation following Bests admittedly tragic death. After all, police officers in Utah and elsewhere routinely use ...

Trump is the second coming of George W. Bush
Post Date: 2017-01-09 10:49:57 by Willie Green
Tax cuts, big government, and financial regulation everything old is new again.Donald Trump is alarming to liberals in many ways, not least of all because he simply does things that defy the normal rules of politics. He disregards transparency, his bizarre tweets are often false or offensive, and he dismisses all kinds of unspoken rules governing everything from financial conflicts of interest to dialogue with the political leadership of Taiwan. This naturally leads to nostalgia for his more conventional predecessors, including the man liberals spent the past decade scorning George W. Bush. The sentimentality began back in the summer of 2015, when Republican ...
FBI Dismisses Child Porn Prosecution After Refusing To Hand Over Details On Its Hacking Tool

from the extreme-tactics,-voluntary-dismissals dept The FBI has decided to let one of its Playpen defendants walk rather than turn over information on its Network Investigative Technique. The NIT, deployed all over the world on the back of a single warrant obtained in Virginia, unmasked Tor users by dropping code on Playpen visitors' computers that sent back IP addresses and other information about the user's computer. The warrant itself has been ruled invalid by a number of judges presiding over Playpen prosecutions, although not all of them have determined that the evidence obtained by the NIT should be suppressed. The FBI not only sent malware to site visitors, but it also ran ...
Jared Kushner, a Trump In-Law and Adviser, Chases a Chinese Deal
Post Date: 2017-01-07 09:54:56 by Willie Green
On the night of Nov. 16, a group of executives gathered in a private dining room of the restaurant La Chine at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Midtown Manhattan. The table was laden with Chinese delicacies and $2,100 bottles of Château Lafite Rothschild. At one end sat Wu Xiaohui, the chairman of the Waldorfs owner, Anbang Insurance Group, a Chinese financial behemoth with estimated assets of $285 billion and an ownership structure shrouded in mystery. Close by sat Jared Kushner, a major New York real estate investor whose father-in-law, Donald J. Trump, had just been elected president of the United States. It was a mutually auspicious moment. Mr. Wu and Mr. Kushner who ...
FBI Doesn’t Care About Government Corruption
Post Date: 2017-01-05 09:22:34 by Deckard
The reason the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) doesnt care about governmental corruption (judicial, executive, legislative) is because they are also in fact, completely and totally corrupt. It appears that their main job is to protect the wealthy elite Deep State Oligarchs/Plutocrats, while nailing to the wall free thinkers, political dissidents, patriots, soft targets, opponents of the oligarch elite, and other real or imagined targets. The FBI has been caught engineering false terrorism arrests (http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/02/19/fbi-terrorism-and-the-false-flag-war/), unlawfully surveilling and harassing innocent Americans ...
With No Warning, House GOP Votes to Gut Independent Ethics Office
Post Date: 2017-01-03 09:16:36 by Willie Green
WASHINGTON House Republicans, overriding their top leaders, voted on Monday to significantly curtail the power of an independent ethics office set up in 2008 in the aftermath of corruption scandals that sent three members of Congress to jail. The move to effectively kill the Office of Congressional Ethics was not made public until late Monday, when Representative Robert W. Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, announced that the House Republican Conference had approved the change. There was no advance notice or debate on the measure. The surprising vote came on the eve of the start of a new session of Congress, where emboldened ...
Crimes of State: Will Obama Pardon Hillary Before Leaving Office?
Post Date: 2016-12-30 07:29:46 by Deckard
This article was written by Melissa Dykes and originally published at The Daily Sheeple. Editors Comment: Lest there be any more loose talk about prosecutions and investigations against the Clintons, there may be pressure on President Obama to sign off on a blank check pardon for Hillary, for any and all crimes she may have committed during any time before/during/future. After all, President Ford pardoned Nixon; it would be good for the continuity of the country, etc., etc. Federal government is so up to the top with corruption and criminality, that its partners and operators in Washington had probably rather sweep it all back under the rug, and endure a few ...

I suppose most people think that from the day he saluted his fathers casket at just three years old, til the evening his plane went down, he just went about his business, playing the game of life like everyone else. After all, he did live, for the most part, a relatively ordinary life, in spite of being the Prince of Americas Camelot. So, what do you suppose was going on in the mind of the sexiest man alive? He could have written his own political ticket, yet he went into publishing. Many expected him to land in politics and most likely were a bit perplexed when he decided to publish a magazine instead. Some thought he was afraid to go into politics because of the Kennedy ...
Why the Bill of Rights Is Failing
Post Date: 2016-12-17 18:06:59 by hondo68
225 years ago today, the first ten amendments were added to the new Constitution of 1787. Those amendments have come to be known as the Bill of Rights, and taken as a whole, these amendments represent what can only be described as one of the few parts of the Constitution worth applauding today. While most of the Constitution is concerned with centralizing government power, raising tax revenue, protecting the institution of chattel slavery, and hammering the independent states into a consolidated political union, the Bill of Rights, on the other hand, was concerned with limiting government power: Bizarrely revered by many as a "pro-freedom" document, ...
