• Superior Court Upholds Conviction of Former Pennsylvania State Attorney General Kathleen Kane

    Superior Court Upholds Conviction of Former Pennsylvania State Attorney General Kathleen Kane

    Former Pennsylvania State Attorney General Kathleen Kane was convicted nearly two years ago of illegally leaking grand jury records and then lying about it.  Though she appealed her case, a Pennsylvania Appeals Court has upheld the decision reached by the jury.

    Kane, 51, was the first woman and first Democrat to be elected to the office of Attorney General.  I’d say that’s probably a teachable moment for citizens of Pennsylvania.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:

    In its unanimous 23-page opinion, the three-judge Superior Court panel made quick work of one of Kane’s arguments — that the special prosecutor who first built the case against her lacked legal legitimacy. The panel noted that the state Supreme Court had rebuffed Kane on that score even before her conviction. READ MORE...

    Barack Hussein Obama Hid Efforts to Aid Iran’s Windfall

    A new Senate report reveals that Barack Obama secretly paved the way for Iran to tap into U.S. banks to convert cash it received from sanctions’ relief to dollars — despite the face the White House assured lawmakers it would do no such thing.

    The report shows how State Department and Treasury Deparment officials during the Obama era quietly gave a special license for a major Omani bank to do business with two U.S. banks.

    Barack Obama spent considerable time selling the American people on the idea of a cooperative Iran — all the while cutting quiet deals, behind closed doors, with the rogue nation. READ MORE...

    Miss America Contestants React To No More Swimsuit, Evening Gown

    On Tuesday, the Miss America Organization announced it was axing the swimsuit and evening gown portions of its annual competition. In an interview with “Good Morning America,” Gretchen Carlson, chair of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization, said the event is no longer a pageant, but a competition and that participants would no longer be judged based on their looks. Watch.

  • You Don’t Get To Re-Write The Constitution Because You Dislike Trump

    You Don’t Get To Re-Write The Constitution Because You Dislike Trump

    If your contention is that Donald Trump has the propensity to sound like a bully and an authoritarian, I’m with you. If you’re arguing that Trump’s rhetoric is sometimes coarse and un-presidential, I can’t disagree. I’m often turned off by the aesthetic and tonal quality of his presidency. And yes, Trump has an unhealthy tendency to push theories that exaggerate and embellish small truths to galvanize his fans for political gain. Those are all legitimate political concerns.

    Yet the ubiquitous claim that Trump acts in a way that uniquely undermines “the rule of law” is, to this point, simply untrue. READ MORE...

    4 Key Points in Tariffs Debate as Trump Heads to G-7 Summit

    Both Mexico and the European Union on Wednesday announced retaliatory tariffs on U.S. products as President Donald Trump prepares for potentially confrontational talks with allies at the Group of Seven summit.

    The G-7 gathering will take place Friday and Saturday in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada.

    Trump has pushed 25 percent tariffs on imported steel and 10 percent tariffs on imported aluminum, and the White House adds that more could be in the works.

    Trump supports free trade, but views tariffs as a tool to get the best deal for the country, Larry Kudlow, director of the White House’s National Economic Council, told reporters Wednesday. READ MORE...

    Virginia: Muslim Who Tried To Join U.S. Military To Imitate Fort Hood Jihadi Gets 5 Years For Lying On Applications

    In joining the military, Shivam Patel apparently wanted to become another Nidal Malik Hasan, the Muslim U.S. Army Major who murdered 13 people while screaming “Allahu akbar” at Fort Hood in 2009: he expressed “support for Maj. Nidal Hasan, who fatally shot 13 soldiers in 2009 while serving at Fort Hood in Texas, calling the attack ‘completely justified’ as he believed that Hasan died a martyr and he wanted to become one too.”

    Actually, Hasan is still alive.

    Governments And Social Media Companies Are Collaborating To Censor Anyone That Would Dare To Question Mainstream Media Narratives

    The era of free and unfettered speech on the Internet is rapidly ending.  All over the world, national governments are working very closely with social media companies to take control of “Internet news”.  Up until recently, the Internet really was a wonderful marketplace of ideas, and ordinary people like you and I were empowered to share information with one another like never before in human history.  But now the elite have seen the power that this can have, and they are cracking down hard.  The term “fake news” has come to mean any source that would dare to question the official narratives that are being fed to us from the mainstream media, and in reality the push to censor “fake news” is really just an all-out effort to eliminate independent thought.  Before the Internet, it was much easier for the elite to control the flow of information, and now they are taking unprecedented measures to control the flow of information in the digital age.
