A Big Dose of the Karma Pill

A Big Dose of the Karma Pill

Legal
Looks like smug former big pharma CEO from Turing Pharmaceuticals, Martin Shkreli, just got a huge dose of Karma when he was convicted of three felony counts of Securities Fraud out of eight counts yesterday in Brooklyn, New York. We'll take one if it means this boy sees a cell and orange in the near future. While the press is just treating it nonchalantly, surely the millions who needed the antiparasitic drug, Daraprim, used for treating AIDs that went from $13.50 a pill to a whopping $750.00 per pill a few years back, have finally had some sense of justice! When Shkreli testified on the Hill regarding his sweeping price hike which caused many to go without the drug, he plead the Fifth with all the cockiness of a young Millennial Jerk. Since then, Shkreli has been far from po...
Recusal Happy Sessions Breaks Bad?

Recusal Happy Sessions Breaks Bad?

Corruption, Current Affairs, Leaks & Whistleblowers, Legal, Republicans, Senate
Well so it seems our recusal happy Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a stunning announcement about leakers today in a press conference... he's going after them. Funny, I'm surprised he hasn't recused himself from this situation because in all reality, he's recused himself from everything thing else that could make him a great AG. Sessions can't possibly think right-thinking Americans are really buying his chuck n' jive anymore. He's been a bitter disappointment to millions of Trump supporters and the President himself. It's no secret. People on Twitter and other social media have made their Sessions' proclivities more than clear with few minced words. It's a shame he doesn't just board it up the DOJ building and go on an extended vacation because with his inability to do anythi...
It Didn’t Happen Overnight…

It Didn’t Happen Overnight…

Corruption, Current Affairs, Government, Legal
It took three Attorney Generals who failed America to quash the respect and trust Americans had in the Department of Justice - hardly an overnight process. First we had Obama's Eric Holder, a man whose past was literally permeated in controversy - from the Columbia University violent takeover in the Seventies to his many questionable cases throughout his law career. Hardly a reputable man but got his job because who would dare buck a president where everything he did got a free pass because of his race. During Holder's time, he participated in various odious affairs like Fast and Furious, which proved to us, the DOJ was politicized and nothing more than a muscle strong arm of a derelict administration. Not the stuff integrity, honor or law-abiding situations are made of and hardly no...
Is Jeff Sessions letting America down?

Is Jeff Sessions letting America down?

Current Affairs, Legal
Katherine Robertson's opinion in the Conservative Review seems to feel that AG Sessions 'cares too much for the country to step down...' yadda yadda yadda. Dripping with honey-filled goo, the writer goes into how President Trump is making a 'big mistake' to even consider replacing is new Attorney General, even though Sessions has done practically nothing of the President's agenda since entering his position. How can we all forget the injustice we face with the Clintons getting away with RICO violations, pay-to-play politics, Russian uranium deals and, of course, the big email server scandal yet to be brought to task? With such a banquet of criminality, one would think Sessions and his colleagues at the DOJ wouldn't have to look far to scrounge up busy work; yet, nothing has even begu...
Travel Ban: What’s Next? Family Pets & Neighbors?

Travel Ban: What’s Next? Family Pets & Neighbors?

Corruption, Current Affairs, Legal
Are we going to include pets and neighbors as the next judicial activism snag to thwart President Trump's attempt to keep us safe? It would seem so as the Hawaii judge, Derrick Watson, continues to poke a stick at the travel ban; usurping millions of Americans' desire to not have our country overrun by refugees. Considering his state has failed to obligate itself to take any of the over 50K refugees, it's pretty astounding that he would be hearing any cases that try to stop the ban from occurring. In a recent article on the Washington Times, many malcontents weighed in on why they think the ban is unfair and cruel; however, they're missing one very crucial element, which they would love for all of us to ignore: President Trump has the constitutional right to ban anyone from entering ...
Has the State Department Cower to Another Liberal Challenge to the Trump Travel Ban?

Has the State Department Cower to Another Liberal Challenge to the Trump Travel Ban?

Corruption, Current Affairs, International Politics, Legal
It would seem with this new stipulation about family members with people here in the US, it has once again, been bullied into watered down policy at the expense of our safety! American being slid under the political bus is getting old! The travel ban imposed by President Trump's Administration was partially upheld last month by the Supreme Court in spite of the 9th Circuit upholding a nefarious halt issued by the Hawaiian judge Derrick K. Watson - an act of judicial activism rather than being based on case law. The ban was challenged by a state that doesn't even take in refugees from Middle Eastern countries and the judge has close ties with former president Obama; therefore, the dubious ruling was suspect from the very start. In a stunning move clouded with more political truculence...
ACLU takes on Wall of Silence in Excessive Force Settlement Cases in Maryland

ACLU takes on Wall of Silence in Excessive Force Settlement Cases in Maryland

Current Affairs, Legal
As many of your already know, my proclivities regarding the ACLU run a mile wide and ten yard deep, but there are always exceptions to every 'rule' - this is one of those times. Over the years, the ACLU has been known for cases against anyone from citizens to cities and states - even federal, which many would see as nuance cases. Crosses out in the public squares during Christmas and other infinitesimal items which leaves many to see the abuse of our court system to forward Liberal agendas, marred in detaching any reference to God in America while letting many references to other religions continue. These apparent abuses have damaged the reputation of the American Civil Liberties Union to many, thus, every time a suit is filed with their involvement, it is assume to be another silly ...
Is Charlie Gard an Argument Against Single Payer System?

Is Charlie Gard an Argument Against Single Payer System?

Current Affairs, Government, Legal
Would you want your child's life or death decided by a court or a death panel? This is exactly what Bernie proposes for your future! In the UK, the Gard family fights for their son's life as bureaucrats who think they know better than his parents, are fighting to end the boy's life and deny him the treatments necessary to give him a chance at a life at all. Would Bernie Sanders pull the plug on an infant? From his statements promoting this kind of death panel; yes, he would. Yet one has to wonder if Bernie could do this to his own child or grandchild -- something Democrats seldom take into account when they push these failed policies on Americans. The Gard family shouldn't have to fight to save their son's life at all. If they were in America, pre-Obamacare, it would be no question t...
Could CNN be putting itself in legal jeopardy?

Could CNN be putting itself in legal jeopardy?

Current Affairs, Legal, Media
CNN, owned by Time Warner, has put itself in a political and possibly now legal hotbed due to their continual fixation on President Trump and his administration with the latest dust-up over a meme tweeted out last week. This time, though, they are doing things that could very well mean the end of the First Amendment cover for which they claim every time anyone questions their fake news tactics. In the meme, Trump wrestles a CNN person, created by a 15 year old. Now, there is much talk about CNN blackmailing this teenager to apologize, allegedly threatening him with doxing him in the public forum - revealing his identity, if he doesn't apologize to the failing network for his mem. Sorry, CNN, but there is a problem with blackmailing as its a crime to coerce anyone - even an adult. Howeve...

As most of you know, yesterday was a big moment for the Supreme Court and the Trump Administration with much of the travel ban being reinstated but the move meant much more to Americans. Throughout the years, our laws and Constitution have been victimized by unelected people within our government, but none so lethal as those sitting on the bench with lifetime appointments. For decades, jurists have run rough shod over our governance by imposing rulings like what just happened in the 9th and 4th district; Liberals have used this system to impose laws and social mores we've never voted for nor would if it were put to the public for a vote. Judicial activism has provided Liberals an avenue to ram ridiculous fodder on the America people like bathroom debates and other such nonsense for w...

Justice for Sister Cathy: The Keepers

Current Affairs, Legal, Media
First published on Salisbury News As many of you know from my previous writings, criminal injustice has always found a soft spot in my psyche, largely because I generally believe in our Rule of Law. A program on Netflix, once again, has struck a chord within me because the grave miscarriage of our justice system stirs even for the most hardened of hearts. Sister Catherine Cesnik is probably a name many of you haven't heard of before. Her tale actually began and ended many decades ago. Close to 48 years ago, she was brutally murdered and many believe it was priests in her own parish who either orchestrated, planned and/or executed the egregious murder. Most importantly was not how she died but the following cover up by the Baltimore Archdiocese that makes this crime even more unsettli...
