Trump-era Department of Justice official Jeffrey Clark won a big victory against Democrat lawfare on Monday when the D.C. Court of Appeals ruled he did not have to comply with a subpoena issued by the D.C. Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel.
The appeals court denied the D.C. Bar’s attempt to enforce its subpoena against Clark because it “infringes on Mr. Clark’s Fifth Amendment right not to be compelled to be a witness against himself.” The court did not release a full opinion but promised to do so in the future.
The victory for Clark serves as a shocking blow to Democrats, who have tried to disbar more than 100 attorneys who agreed to work on election integrity cases following the 2020 presidential election. They’ve expanded that lawfare to attorneys across the nation who defend conservatives, including half of Republican attorneys general.
An amendment to an Indiana bill would allow an unelected, Democrat-stacked committee that works in secret to control whom Hoosiers are allowed to vote for as state attorney general.
The amendment would bar from appearing on Hoosier ballots any candidate for attorney general who, within one year of the election, has been disbarred or suspended from his law license without an automatic reinstatement. Law license challenges have since 2020 become a political tool for Democrats to deny their political opponents legal representation.
Multiple Democrat pressure groups such as The 65 Project and Lawyers Defending Democracy now exist specifically to harass, intimidate, and force potentially tens of thousands of dollars of representation costs on their political opponents for constitutionally protected free speech. This means any Republican attorney general is at high risk of an ethics complaint unless he represents no challenge to Democrat priorities.
In recent years, Democrats have doggedly tried to take down Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices. Some have thrown accusations against Justices Thomas, Alito, and Coney Barret.
And their shameful actions to block Brett Kavanaugh left a black stain on the entire process.
But it appears there are more concerns over the actions of Democrat-appointed justices. Recently, some have questioned the income and expenses of one justice celebrated by the left. Now, a new report has uncovered details that will have Democrats very worried.
From MSN: Supreme Court justices have made hundreds of trips and public appearances in recent years. But only one sitting justice appears to have taken the unusual step of traveling with a medic: 69-year-old Justice Sonia Sotomayor…
In February 2018, a medic from Grand Junction, Colorado, accompanied Sotomayor on a trip she made to southern Florida, according to the records.
The corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) opened itself up to incredible ridicule online with a post boasting about combatting organized retail theft.
As Gateway Pundit readers know, looting has become a national crisis thanks to far-left prosecutors in major cities refusing to prosecute retail theft crimes in the name of “social justice.” Businesses from San Francisco to Washington D.C. are either closing or moving because the young thieves keep stealing their items while law enforcement does nothing.
The hard truth is primarily young people of color are committing retail thefts as part of organized flash mobs, though the media conveniently avoids addressing this fact.
But here is the FBI post in question regarding looting.
President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign is preparing for a wave of negative fallout stemming from the expected release of photos showing careless storage of classified documents as special counsel Robert Hur’s year-long investigation wraps up.
Axios has reported that Biden’s advisors do not anticipate the filing of criminal charges stemming from the investigation. However, they are apprehensive about potentially embarrassing photographs that may be included in Hur’s forthcoming report, expected to be released as early as this week.
The images might reveal how Biden stored classified materials, which were found in late 2022, both in the garage of Biden’s Delaware residence and in a private office he frequented. The classified documents date back to Biden’s tenure as vice president during the Obama administration.
In the run-up to their anticipated rematch in the 2024 election, close advisers to President Biden have expressed concern to Axios that the former President Trump’s campaign might potentially exploit the images.
Webmaster addition: Keep in mind that as Vice President, Joe Biden did not have authority to declassify and remove those documents. Trump, as President, did.
Judge McAfee has concluded that the attorney for Nathan Wade must retake the stand at the Fani Willis hearings and that he must answer questions that are not protected by the attorney-client privilege.
“A witness in the ongoing Fulton County district attorney disqualification controversy met behind closed doors with the judge overseeing the case Monday,” two lawyers involved with the case confirmed to 11Alive.
“The witness, Terrence Bradley, is a former law partner and one-time divorce attorney for special prosecutor Nathan Wade,” the report continued.
“Defense attorneys have asked Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee to disqualify both Wade and District Attorney Fani Willis, alleging they financially benefitted from a romantic relationship they shared during their ongoing prosecution of former president Donald Trump and co-defendants accused of interfering with the 2020 election in Georgia,” 11Alive added.
For three years now we have witnessed Joe Biden’s intentional destruction of America on a daily basis. His failed economic policies, overspending, foreign policy nightmares, and persecution of his political opposition are only overshadowed by his open border policies that have allowed over 10 million illegal aliens to walk across the open US border with Mexico into the United States and immediate government benefits.
No country in history can survive with open borders and the annual invasion of millions of unknown and undocumented aliens invading their country.
According to the House Committee on Homeland Security, the massive cost to house and take care of illegal aliens and so-called asylum seekers inside the US is $451 billion.
Former President Donald Trump continues to gain momentum and support as he appears to be on a glide path to the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, barring him being convicted of charges filed against him by President Joe Biden’s Justice Department.
Over the weekend, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the chamber’s No. 2 Republican and a top deputy to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), publicly endorsed Trump.
“The primary results in South Carolina make clear that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president in this year’s pivotal presidential election. The choice before the American people is crystal clear: It’s Donald Trump or Joe Biden,” Thune told Fox News Digital.
“I support former President Trump’s campaign to win the presidency, and I intend to do everything I can to see that he has a Republican majority in the Senate working with him to restore American strength at home and abroad,” he continued.
Data obtained by AP VoteCast found that 40 percent of those who voted for Nikki Haley in the South Carolina primary were Democrats who voted for Joe Biden in 2020.
AP VoteCast surveyed over 2,400 voters participating in Saturday’s Republican primary in South Carolina.
The Associated Press found, “About 9 in 10 Trump voters said they were driven by their support for him, not by objections to his opponent. Haley’s voters were much more divided: About half were motivated by supporting her, but nearly as many turned out to oppose Trump.”
Commercial real estate foreclosures in the U.S. increased 97% in January 2024 compared to last year, reaching a high that has not been seen in nearly a decade, according to new data.
With 635 commercial foreclosures in January 2024, foreclosures increased 17% from December 2023 and 97% from January 2023, according to a report last week from property data analyst ATTOM.
The last time that commercial foreclosures were this high was in May 2015, per agency data.
"This uptick signifies not just a return to pre-pandemic activity levels but also underscores the ongoing adjustments within the commercial real estate sector as it navigates through a landscape transformed by evolving business practices and consumer behaviors," ATTOM CEO Rob Barber said.
Commercial properties are not the only ones affected by foreclosures.
