Not only did the public put politics aside, it also seems to have forgotten about all of the things these men have done to give them a very different title: War Criminal. Nothing more beautiful than everyone putting their differences aside to help humanity in the face of catastrophe. #OneAmericaAppeal, Gaga wrote on Twitter. Here are a few of the highlights from each presidency: Jimmy Carter (1977-1981) After the CIA-sponsored assassination of the first democratically-elected prime minister ...

It wasn't very long ago that Hopalong was banning people for saying what's now pervasive in the comments sections. I was one of them. The almost-always grift is running at about the same slow pace as usual, FYI. The last grift-free break between grifts was 8 days at the end of September. --------------- Former White House adviser Steve Bannon says there has not been a more destructive presidency than George W. Bushs. Bannon delivered a scathing criticism of the former president after Bush this week denounced bigotry in Trump-era American politics, warning that the rise of nativism, isolationism and conspiracy theories have clouded the nations true ...

Much has been written about the prosecutorial prowess of Robert Muellers team assembled to investigate allegations of Russias involvement in the Trump campaign. Little has been said of the danger of prosecutorial overreach and the true history of Muellers lead prosecutor.What was supposed to have been a search for Russias cyberspace intrusions into our electoral politics has morphed into a malevolent mission targeting friends, family and colleagues of the president. The Mueller investigation has become an all-out assault to find crimes to pin on them and it wont matter if there are no crimes to be found. This team can make some.Many Americans despise ...

Robert Stapleton says his troubles began when he refused to sell to an influential developer.Robert Stapleton was a United States Marine in Vietnam. The war left him injured, and with a desire to be alone, and far away from people.

"I was just spent when I got done with the whole thing," Stapleton tells Reason of his experience. "I came to the desert to rest and regroup. And this was fine, this little house." For thirty years, Stapleton raised horses and plied his trade as a blacksmith while the city slowly ...
Mencken on Government
Post Date: 2017-10-12 05:53:05 by Deckard
All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives. The most dangerous man to any ...
Hundreds Of Cases Dismissed Thanks To Baltimore PD Misconduct

from the perp-walkers dept After years of listening to tough-on-crime legislators and the tough-on-crime lawmen that love to hear them talk about filthy criminals beating the system by getting off on technicalities, it's somewhat funny to discover lots of what's complained about is nothing more than good old-fashioned due process and/or the collateral damage of crooked, inept, or lazy cops. We've seen a lot of en masse criminal case dismissals recently. Thousands of convictions and charges were dropped in Massachusetts as the result of a state crime lab tech's years of faked drug tests. All over the nation, cops are letting perps walk rather than discuss law ...

WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump's health secretary resigned Friday, after his costly travel triggered investigations that overshadowed the administration's agenda and angered his boss. Tom Price's regrets and partial repayment couldn't save his job. The Health and Human Services secretary became the first member of the president's Cabinet to be pushed out in a turbulent young administration that has seen several high-ranking White House aides ousted. A former GOP congressman from the Atlanta suburbs, Price served less than eight months. Publicly, Trump had said he was "not happy" with Price for repeatedly using private charter aircraft for ...

Post Date: 2017-09-20 08:27:49 by Deckard
On Monday, President Trump tweeted birthday wishes to the Air Force and the CIA. Both became official organizations 70 years ago on September 18, 1947, with the implementation of the National Security Act of 1947. After spending years as a wartime intelligence agency called the Office of Strategic Services, the agency was solidified as a key player in the federal governments operations with then-President Harry Trumans authorization. In the seventy years since, the CIA has committed a wide variety of misdeeds, crimes, coups, and violence. Here are seven of the worst programs theyve carried out (that are known to the public): Toppling governments ...

Post Date: 2017-09-13 08:57:45 by Tooconservative
A secret server is behind the Capitol Polices decision to ban a former IT aide to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz from the House network. Now-indicted former congressional IT aide Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to a secret server.

The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

The countrys voting machines are susceptible to hacking, which could be done in a way so that it leaves no fingerprints, making it impossible to know whether the outcome was changed, computer experts told President Trumps voter integrity commission Tuesday.

Trump DOJ: NO PLANS TO CHARGE LOIS LERNER IN IRS SCANDAL The Trump administration has no plans to charge former IRS official Lois Lerner over her role in the Tea Party targeting scandal, the Justice Department said Friday in response to calls by Republican lawmakers to revisit the case. In a letter to the lawmakers, the Justice Department said that "reopening the criminal investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence." This past April, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., had asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take a "fresh look" at the case.

FDA Approves Synthetic THC for Pharma Co. Behind Anti-Pot Lobby and Opioid Bribery Scheme
Post Date: 2017-08-29 08:02:47 by Deckard
The historic Nov. 2016 ballot initiatives to legalize cannabis brought a resounding win for freedom in several states, with the exception of Arizona. There, voters narrowly rejected decriminalization, in no small part due to a massive anti-pot propaganda campaign funded in-part by Big Pharma. Arizona-based Insys Therapeutics gave $500,000 to a group called Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, which amounted to 10 percent of the groups total money used to manufacture and disseminate anti-pot propaganda. Some of the scare tactics Insys used itself was to claim that legalization fails to protect the safety of Arizonas citizens, and particularly its ...

Forfeiture Loot Corrupts Justice
Post Date: 2017-08-24 05:40:25 by Deckard
When law enforcement agencies make money by seizing property, due process vanishes.In Ohio during the 1920s, people caught with "intoxicating liquors" could be tried by rural mayors, who were paid for each conviction and authorized to impose fines that were split between the village and the state. Four decades later, mayor's courts in Ohio were handling traffic cases, which did not reward the mayors directly but generated substantial income for their villages. According to the U.S. Supreme Court, both of these arrangements violated the right to due process, since the judges had a financial incentive to find people guilty. Civil asset forfeiture creates a similar problem, ...

Post Date: 2017-08-23 07:16:01 by Deckard
A federal judge in Indiana issued a sharp rebuke to civil forfeiture abuse on Monday, ruling that the Indianapolis Metro Police Department may no longer hold vehicles for up to six months before deciding whether to file official forfeiture paperwork. Using asset forfeiture, police departments and federal law enforcement are often able to seize propertyincluding cars, homes, cash, jewelry, and other valuablesif they say the property was used in a crime or was purchased with drug money. Though cops claim that forfeiture helps them target drug cartels and other big-time criminals, it is often used to seize small amounts of cash and often targets poor communities where people are ...
