The gun buyback bill headed for New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s desk requires “at least” three gun buybacks every year throughout the state. The bill’s sponsor wants nine. Governor Murphy is likely to press for even more.
Shifting Focus in the Trump/Russia Investigation: Top Lawmakers Urge DOJ to Investigate Author of Trump "Dossier"Written by C. Mitchell Shaw
The focus seems to be shifting in the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. While Democrats demanded the investigation and have tried to keep the focus on allegations of Trump/Russia collusion, the evidence — and top Republicans — seem to be pushing the investigation in a different direction: whether those involved in the creation of the Trump “dossier” that was at ground zero of the investigation violated the law.
The Trump administration has laid the groundwork for clearing the biggest obstacle keeping WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from leaving the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Assange has been in exile there since August 2012 and has feared leaving, since the U.S. government has considered him a criminal suspect for his role in publishing classified documents detailing sometimes criminal actions by federal departments and agents.
Congressional investigators have turned up new information indicating that high-level FBI officials including ousted director James Comey decided ahead of time to exonerate Hillary Clinton of doing anything illegal in her use of an unsecured, unauthorized, private e-mail server and account to send and receive classified e-mails during her tenure as secretary of state. Not only that, but evidence indicates that the FBI buried facts regarding Clinton wrongdoing.
Hillary Clinton is in the middle of yet another investigation. Although she is already being investigated by numerous agencies in connection to a litany of crimes, Clinton can add to that list a new investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in criminal activity including “pay-for-play” when she was secretary of state, according to a report by The Hill.
The fallout from the Uranium One scandal is still coming down. While the liberal establishment in both politics and media is busily failing in its efforts to prove collusion between Trump and Russia, Hillary Clinton continues to find herself caught in the crosshairs of multiple investigations into her dealings with Russian interests during her tenure as secretary of state.
California Governor Jerry Brown has pardoned two convicted felons slated for deportation back to their native Cambodia.
The government is in big trouble. The now-infamous standoffs could have ended in disaster for liberty and ranchers. And for some, such as rancher LaVoy Finicum, who was shot dead by government officials while traveling on a public highway, it did end in tragedy. But after years of terror and pain felt by the embattled Bundy family and those close to them, there may finally be a very happy ending visible on the horizon for the Nevada ranchers and for justice. It seems the tables have turned, dramatically. In fact, rather than putting the liberty-loving ranchers and their staunchest supporters behind bars for life — or even six feet under, as Obama administration officials planned — there is now explosive evidence from a whistleblower that could put some of the rogue bureaucrats on the case in prison for extremely serious crimes.
Outraged by new whistleblower revelations of horrifying wrongdoing by federal officials in the Bundy case — one official kept a “kill list,” others withheld evidence from the defense — prominent lawmakers in Western states are asking Congress and the Trump administration to investigate. The government's case, which gained national attention after a 2014 armed standoff in Nevada between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Bundy family and its supporters, appears to be crumbling. But even as it appears increasingly likely that the defendants will soon walk free, officials say the alleged crimes perpetrated by government officials must not be allowed to go unpunished.
The Philadelphia city council passed a law that could regulate away shopkeepers' ability to protect themselves with bulletproof glass because its presence offends some people.
