Watch: Even CNN Doesn't Think Prosecution
Has Proven Case Against Trump
Posted by Dreadnought 5/29/2024 1:18:39 AM Post Reply
Let's face it, CNN's Jake Tapper is high up there on the list of folks who don't like former President Donald Trump. But on Tuesday, as the closing arguments were being made in the Manhattan trial of the former president and the case was about to go to the jury, even Tapper and other members of a CNN panel that included legal experts didn't think that the prosecution had proven the so-called "hush money" case against Trump. “It‘s not even about that he didn’t know about the reimbursement, it’s that he didn’t know that the bookkeeper used the drop-down menu to say legal fees, that that was not something
The Collapse of ‘Port Biden’ Draws
Reluctant Network Coverage, If Any

Across the dial, the Regime Media’s network evening newscasts showed mixed interest in covering an embarrassing blow to the Biden administration’s efforts in Gaza: the partial collapse of the temporary pier built at President Biden’s behest, in order to expedite the delivery of relief supplies to the civilian population- known derisively as “Port Biden”. The most through reporting comes via NBC’s Raf Sanchez, who filed this dispatch within his Rafah recap: RAF SANCHEZ: Meanwhile, NBC News has learned the U.S. military has been forced to halt aid deliveries into Gaza by sea, after three officials said bad weather damaged its temporary pier.

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) tanks reached the center of the town of Rafah on Tuesday. according to multiple media outlets, indicating that Israel intended to fight outwards toward the periphery rather than closing in from the outside.

The Biden administration staged a shambolic
press conference outside the Trump trial,
complete with Robert DeNiro
Posted by Dreadnought 5/29/2024 1:02:46 AM Post Reply
There are two times people make really bad mistakes: When they’re over-confident and when they’re desperate. The Biden administration is not over-confident. Desperation is why it dragged out an over-the-hill, minimally coherent, not-very-bright actor to be its spokesman regarding the show trial that Alvin Bragg and Judge Juan Merchan have staged in Manhattan to try to sideline Trump’s increasingly successful candidacy. The big headline was that Robert De Niro spoke outside the courthouse where the Trump trial was being held. I’ll have more on that in a minute, but the real news should be that it was the Biden administration that organized De Niro’s appearance, along with the
Is Justin Trudeau's Regime Coming to an End? replies
Posted by Dreadnought 5/29/2024 12:56:01 AM Post Reply
At a quick glance, it would probably be fairly easy for many of us to conclude that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and American President Joe Biden have quite a bit in common aside from their age. They are both far to the left on most policy issues and they are not fans of free speech or even free movement when such are being exercised by their political opponents or critics. We've already covered many examples of this when it comes to Joe Biden, but you are likely also aware of Trudeau's treatment of the truckers in the Freedom Convoys, not to mention the vaccine mandates and lockdowns
School choice the big winner as Texas
GOP incumbents lose in dramatic runoffs
Posted by Dreadnought 5/29/2024 12:51:56 AM Post Reply
A wave of Republican incumbents were swept out of the Texas House in Tuesday's primary runoffs, including a handful who opposed school vouchers last fall, handing Gov. Greg Abbott a tentative majority in the lower chamber on his signature issue. With most ballots counted across the state, six of the eight GOP House members who were forced into overtime appeared to lose their runoffs, continuing a surge of anti-establishment energy that had already led to the ouster of nine House Republicans in the March primary. The runoffs brought mixed results for Texas' hard right: the House gained a pro-voucher majority — for now — and the 15 GOP incumbents ousted

GOP Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (NY) on Tuesday filed a misconduct complaint with the New York State Unified Court System related to the “random” assignment of far-left radical and conflicted Judge Juan Merchan to Trump’s NYC ‘hush money’ trial. “I just filed an official misconduct complaint with the New York State Unified Court System related to the “random” assignment of Acting Manhattan Justice Juan Merchan, a Biden donor whose daughter is fundraising millions off his unprecedented work, to criminal cases against President Donald J.

WHO Strikes Out with Proposed “Pandemic Treaty” replies

We have been following the developments related to the pandemic treaty the World Health Organization (WHO) proposed. Legal Insurrection joined others in sounding the alarms in 2022 when it became clear that the international organization was going to use the COVID-19 pandemic response model for more power grabbing and wealth redistribution. The World Health Organization gets to define what a pandemic is, when a pandemic is in progress and how long a pandemic lasts. Then you read the fine print and you realize the W.H.O will have total authority over emergency operations in the United States if there’s ever a “public health emergency.” Huh?
Turley: There Are Many ‘Reversible Errors’

Fox News legal analyst Jonathan Turley said Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” that former President Donald Trump’s New York trial for allegedly falsifying business records related to payments to porn star Stormy Daniel has had many “reversible errors” for an appeal. Turley said, “I think that of those options, an acquittal is fast moving outside the realm of possibility. I think it’s just extremely unlikely. I think the choice between a hung jury and outright conviction. I still think that this is such a weak case one has to give a nod to the hung jury. But, if there is a conviction, and that would not necessarily surprise

Gaza Pier Problems Go From Bad To Worse

New problems are mounting for the Biden administration’s $320 million floating Gaza aid pier which was already facing setbacks, despite becoming operational less than two weeks ago. The U.S. military was forced to halt aid shipments to Gaza on Tuesday after the floating pier was damaged by bad weather over the weekend. The damage sustained from the bad weather is only the latest in a string of logistical and operational problems that have plagued the pier since it was constructed in mid May. The JLOTS pier was a “horrible idea,” Michael DiMino, senior fellow at Defense Priorities and former CIA and defense official, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “

Hollywood star Robert De Niro is getting some of the worst audience reviews of his career — worse than Dirty Grandpa, worse than Rocky and Bullwinkle — for his chaotic and instantly-memeable press conference Tuesday outside the New York courthouse where former President Donald Trump is standing trial. How low does the Tomatometer go? “Worst acting of his career,” wrote one viewer. “I will never spend money on anything he’s in again,” responded another. “He is destroying his acting legacy,” another wrote. Even some fans have had enough. “I’m still a huge De Niro fan but his political rants are irrelevant at this point,” wrote another.

The prosecution rested Tuesday evening after delivering closing arguments in Donald Trump’s hush-money trial, sending the case to the jury to decide the fate of the presumptive Republican nominee for president after a weeks-long trial that took him off the campaign trail and placed him inside a Manhattan courtroom. As chaotic scenes unfolded outside the courthouse in lower Manhattan, including an appearance from actor and Biden campaign surrogate Robert De Niro, Trump’s defense team and District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s prosecutors summed up their respective arguments, both of which focused heavily on the credibility of Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and fixer.
'Full-Blown Concession' From Biden Campaign:
Trump Campaign Responds to That NYC Press Conference

On Tuesday, as Katie covered, President Joe Biden's reelection campaign held a bizarre press conference outside of the New York City courthouse where former and potentially future President Donald Trump is on trial. The once great actor Robert DeNiro showed up in a mask, gave remarks, and even got into it with Trump supporters as he yelled "f**k you" and called them "gangsters." The Trump campaign and members of the family responded with comments of their own. National Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt made a particularly illustrative point.

Donald Trump's hush-money trial in New York has always had something of the circus about it. So it was only fitting that, on the day prosecution and defense gave their closing statements before the jury begins its deliberations, it should turn into a full-scale Big Top. Robert De Niro appeared as the Star Clown, haranguing Americans outside the Manhattan court for even daring to think about voting for Trump and claiming, in a rant that got ever more bizarre, that The Donald was going to 'destroy the world'. Perhaps this is what passes for sophisticated political analysis in Hollywood. Or maybe it was just an embarrassing attempt at clown comedy.

The other runners stood in silence with their hands behind their backs instead of clapping.

President Trump was back in court on Tuesday morning for closing arguments in Alvin Bragg’s ‘hush money’ show trial in New York City. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicted Trump in April 2023 on 34 felony counts related to ‘hush payments’ he made to Stormy Daniels. Trump was accused of paying porn star Stormy Daniels, AKA, Stephanie Clifford, ‘hush payments’ through his then-attorney Michael Cohen in a scheme to silence her and stop the story about their alleged affair from being published in the National Enquirer.
Could US-Saudi 'mega deal' spark Middle
East nuclear race?

Last week, several media reports suggested that Saudi Arabia was on the verge of a "mega deal" with the United States. Bombastic phrases like a "mega deal" or a "grand bargain" are being used because the agreement would bring the US and the Saudis closer in significant ways, including in a mutual defense pact and through cooperation on emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and a civilian nuclear program. Such a deal was originally supposed to be closely tied to the normalization of Saudi Arabia's relations with Israel. However, with the Saudis insistent that any normalization include Israeli recognition of a path towards Palestinian statehood and the Israelis equally insistent

Pope Francis Laments Excessive ‘Faggotry’

Pope Francis complained Catholic seminaries are too full of “faggotry” in a closed-door meeting with Italian bishops last week, local media report. While the pontiff famously asked, “Who am I to judge?” in 2013 in reference to a homosexual monsignor who was trying to live a chaste lifestyle, he has been an outspoken critic of gays in the Catholic priesthood. In 2018, Francis insisted that it is a mistake to downplay the seriousness of homosexuality, asserting that homosexuals have no place in the priesthood. Homosexuality is “not just an expression of an affection,” the pope said in a book-length interview. “In consecrated and priestly life, there’s no room for that kind of affection.”
This May Have Been the Biden Campaign’s
Dumbest Idea Yet
Posted by Hazymac 5/28/2024 5:21:17 PM Post Reply
Donald Trump’s resilience in the polls as he endures the bogus trial in Manhattan has befuddled the political left. "Why isn't Trump's trial hurting him?” leftists ask. They can’t understand it because they’re so blinded by their hatred for Trump that they can’t see that his legal troubles don't stem from a fair justice system but a biased system motivated by politics. The polls prove it as they show that the public believes the criminal charges are politically motivated. The Biden campaign is panicking about the situation and decided to revise its strategy of largely ignoring the trial to sending actor Robert DeNiro to the Manhattan courthouse to troll Trump.

After spending nearly $400 million to construct a "humanitarian pier" in the Gaza Strip, which President Joe Biden announced during his State of the Union address in March, the formerly floating nightmare is sinking into the sea and operations have been suspended. (X) Last week the pier broke apart and washed up on the beach in Israel. Republican Congressman Michael Waltz called it "FUBAR." (Snip) Shortly after the pier broke apart the Pentagon admitted all of the aid distributed from the floating location, which has repeatedly come under attack by Hamas, was stolen by the terrorist organization. The White House has not officially weighed in on the disaster.
