The defeat of Alaska senator Ted Stevens in the 2008 election was crucial for the 60 vote Senate margin needed to pass Obamacare.

He lost his seat because he was prosecuted for corruption during an election year.
Stevens had served Alaska for 40 years, making him the longest-serving Republican senator in history.


Steven's subsequent conviction was overturned due to prosecutorial misconduct.

Presiding Judge Sullivan publicly upbraided the government lawyers. “In nearly 25 years on the bench, I’ve never seen anything approaching the mishandling and misconduct that I’ve seen in this case. . . . When the government does not meet its obligations to turn over evidence, the system falters.”



A 670-page report details numerous instances of mistakes, including -- but not limited to -- withholding material that could have exonerated Stevens, made by everyone involved in the prosecution.

But the report lays much of the blame on the two Alaska-based prosecutors engaged, who the report said engaged in “reckless” professional misconduct for failing to disclose information to Stevens’ lawyers that would have been favorable to the defense. It didn’t call the failings intentional, however.

The prosecutors who are taking the fall in the case, Joe Bottini and James Goeke, were the prosecutors from Alaska, far from the political seat of power. DOJ officials recommended a 40-day suspension without pay for Bottini and a 15-day suspension for Goeke.

Florida State Attorney Angela Corey and state prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda tried to hide much of Trayvon Martin's phone data from the Zimmerman defense team.

The office of Angela Corey held a vested interest in the content of Trayvon’s cell phone because, as we would later discover, the content therein showed how Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, and his father, Tracy Martin, lied to state investigators about the details surrounding Trayvon’s activities prior to his encounter with George Zimmerman.

Baltimore: Freddie Gray Autopsy Report Deals Blow to Murder Charges

The Baltimore Sun’s story makes it easier to understand why Ms. Mosby wanted the autopsy kept under wraps. It raises additional disturbing questions about her case — a case in which she has already had to dismiss false-imprisonment charges, the untenable nature of which I explained when Mosby filed them.

It turns out that Mr. Gray “tested positive for opiates and cannabinoid.” Moreover, he carried on wildly when initially placed in the police van. It had previously been widely reported that he was not belted into his seat, a violation of recently adopted Baltimore police policy that Mosby dubiously makes the basis of her case. The Sun’s latest dispatch, however, indicates that Gray was making matters difficult for the police: “yelling and banging, ‘causing the van to rock,’

The medical examiner, Carol H. Allan, surmised that Gray probably could not have sustained his severe injuries if he’d remained in the prone position the police had put him in.

Baltimore Evidence Includes Transport Van Witness Donta Allen “On Video” Telling Investigators Freddie Gray Was Jumping Around “Like A Madman”…

Oh, how we’ve seen this entire story play out before. Baltimore's Donta Allen 2015, is Ferguson's Rachel Jeantel 2013 !! A prosecution witness that actually deconstructs the prosecution.

Now we know why Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby wants to block public awareness of the evidence.

Jury acquits BP exec accused of lying about oil spill flow

Federal prosecutors accused Rainey of manipulating estimates of oil flowing from the failed BP well in order to match lower government estimates.

The 12-person jury deliberated for around two hours before returning a not guilty verdict.


In an unorthodox move, Judge Englehardt endorsed the jury outcome after reading the verdict.

"I agree with the verdict. I think it's the correct verdict based on the evidence," Englehardt said.

Comments section:

"Only two hours and a unanimous acquittal with an endorsement by Englehardt. That is a real b%#ch slap to the Justice Dept.

I've never seen a judge voice agreement with a jury. None of the more experienced reporters around me had either. It was definitely interesting.

The judge's comments were quite profound. I'm not sure I have heard anything similar in 33 years as a trial attorney. The jury absolutely got it right. "

What we are now seeing in the travesty that is Baltimore’s prosecution of six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray.

 

In Baltimore, the municipal government -- working hand in glove with the federal government -- has its narrative: the “Black Lives Matter” storyline which holds that Gray’s death in police custody was a cold-blooded murder caused by pervasive racism.

 

The official government media narrative had nothing to do with the actual facts of the case. Gray’s death was an accident. Baltimore’s criminal justice system is among the most thoroughly integrated in the country.

 

In the absence of evidence, the prosecutors are trying to sell their propaganda as proof.

 

Not surprisingly, it is a rout so far. Prosecutors have been unable to convict the first two police officers, most recently officer Edward Nero, who was acquitted on all charges Monday.

 

Not surprisingly, the only way the prosecution stands any chance of winning is to incite an atmosphere of intimidation.

 

Jurors must be made to fear that unless they convict -- regardless of the dearth of evidence -- there may well be rioting and blood in the streets

They burned Baltimore for this: The Freddie Gray hoax is dead.

 

Prosecutors dropped all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray in a downtown courtroom on Wednesday morning, concluding one of the most high-profile criminal cases in Baltimore history.

 

The lynch mob had the misfortune to run into a good judge.

 

Where do the officers go to get their reputations back?

 

Why would the  police in Baltimore and elsewhere take a proactive role in preventing violence knowing their cities would not back them?

The failure of false prosecutions -  the under reported story of 2016  

 

The media have never taken a full accounting of how the insufferable false narratives spurred by anti-police, and anti-law-and-order social justice movements have collapsed when faced with sunlight of actual evidence.

 

The attempts to prosecute the transparently innocent began with Zimmerman (’12), continued with Darren Wilson (Ferguson ’14) and culminated with the Baltimore Six trials (’16). In each example the fraud within the prosecution could not withstand the sunlight of the actual legal system.  Think about how many millions were spent on investigations and cases that were constructed entirely by fraud and deceit, and simultaneously promoted by the ideological broadcasts of the media.  Stunningly under reported.

The Armstrong 12/20 story of EU stealing $1M from a 91 year old got me "triggered"

 

The difference is satanists and humans is basically the meaning of christian constitutional rule of law.

the satanists have the macro self image of porch gods that never worked a day in their life,

redistributing the white trash labor at the expense of incremental hidden

sacrificial genocides of one child one 91 year old at a time for the greater good.

 

They can imagine the godless hapless utopia of rewarding sloth by hate for the individual.

 

they can keep it hidden as long as they own the $6M income inequality tv legs.

they never counted what happens when they run out of white trash labor, when the feminazis left no existing civilization for the

men to work for freedom in free will.

The constitution (LAW) is the individual natural human rights is the christian law of free will of human sovereignty.

the two good and evil shall never meet and it will be war. Guess which one thinks, reasons and counts, which one always

wins since the beginning of time.

 

 

the basic difference in the obama/clinton collapse occcuring under Trump is the

rule of law.

but the other theory where cia-soros runs their own printing presses down to owning all the

satanist tv legs and running isis, trump ultimately has to cancel the currency and bankrupt

satanist ignorant debt, to choke them off.

 

there is never any possibility of paying 20T obama debt and it is not even that, it is the

200T unfunded SS, SS disability, medicare, obamacare, education and all unfunded

federali mandates on the states and localitities so the slaves dont even have clean water,

such as clinton corporation prisons is the

property tax is the same depopulated white trash tax debt. All local and state debt is the

federal debt disguised through "mandates" on only one elimated productive class.

and no, consumption waste services economy is not the productive class it is the waste

malinvestment class. So in some ways you do see the hidden intelligence in taxing them,

all those involved in consumption waste malinvestment maybe should be taxed into genocide

maybe they deserve it for ignorance. How did I know this all my life and taking sacrifices to

stay in wealth creation legal commerce?

The 20T admitted debt is 70% accumulated interest, is their .001% pedophile overlords they

chant for more. Is their income inequality they chant for more.

Then federal reserve bank owners take 6% annual perpetual dividend on new debt issue. Why do

you think they want 1964 "war on poverty" to truncated the collapsing rate of poverty before it

got to zero, war on drugs to feed the clinton corporation prisons - property tax,

obama russian war to make 6% annual dividend. Why did congress propose a bill eliminating their dividend.

Why does their

dividend stay at 6% when obama interest rate is negative to depopulate the white trash labor

(pensions).

So my keypoint is the collapse probably can be nudged to destroy the pig satanist debt

which is destroying the counterfeit currency and all generations of FDR debt.

They will never learn the rule of law or counting so you have to give cannibal pedophile

satanists what they chant for and you dont even have to try it happens you just have to

have the parallel system at the ready and let it happen or give it a nudge.

When there is no counterfeit there is no soros like creatures no satanist tv legs, case closed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

bill holter on what collapse might look like, I like this guy but surely none of the gold guys have been

right on timing and will not even be pleased to take the last laugh either.

91 Year Old Woman Court Sides With Bank – Her Cash Saving Illegal
A 91 year old woman in Kristianstad tried to simply deposit her 108,000  SEK (approx. 12000 USD), which was her life savings. The bank refused to accept the notes, because the woman could not explain where they came from. The woman saved the first money in the drawer, because she did not trust banks. Then in a safety deposit box. Saving money and then trying to deposit it in a bank is rapidly becoming a crime as we move deeper into the age of authoritarian government because socialism is collapsing and government are desperate for money.
Because the woman had no proof of where they came from, the bank refused to receive notes with reference to the Riksbank’s regulations. The woman appealed to the Administrative Court explaining that she was not a criminal and not present a criminal record. She has lived efficient and economical, and now wanted to splurge a little during his last years of life. The regulations that are depriving this woman of her life savings according to the Riksbank requires a person not to have been convicted of a crime for redemption of banknotes previously. The Administrative Court allowed no other conclusion than the Riksbank and reject the appeal.
The government stole the life savings of a 91 year-old woman who wanted to splurge before she died. Welcome to the reality of socialism. If you really think socialist care about people, go to Venezuela.

COMMENT: The 91 year old woman who had her $12,000 deposit declined in Kristanstad, Sweden, and the money confiscated by the State is a sad tale. Perhaps you might want to identify Kristanstad, as a town in Sweden, for those of us who do not readily identify Kristanstad, a town of 35,000 souls with Sweden.
BTW I love your blog.
REPLY: Sorry – my bad as they say. This is Sweden. The notes were the old obsolete notes that she had saved over the years. If she could not prove she saved these notes, the government refuses to accept them. Just more confiscation because ALL governments now PRESUME we are all guilty and it is our BURDEN to prove we are innocent. This is the peak in socialism. It has nothing to do with helping people, it is all about helping government.
The “obsolete” is not the issue. Even obsolete notes are redeemable. This is standard in Europe. One pound notes in Britain from 1970 have been cancelled. Only the US does not cancel old currency. They are still redeemable. Even Australia redeems old cancelled banknotes. The Swedish Riksbank states on their site:
The Riksbank redeems all Swedish banknotes that are invalid, as long as there is no suspicion that they may be linked to a crime, for instance a cash-in-transit robbery.

obama is issuing 700 pages of regulations a day to sabotage the country

ignorant spent 2.5T tuition debt is 5T at 10 years of 7% interest for

unemployable liberal zombie de-education, for 94% part time obama jobs.

many of them just took the tuition debt to waste time in lieu of no jobs

but in any case it is godless weird science federali de-education useless to productivity

there is a classic rant by a black lady trapped in obama chicago genocide, they hoped for 8 years until last year they doubled

the homicide rate at 80B City pension deficit, not state, one city.

 

 

 

When America Was Still The Land Of Opportunity

Submitted by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

Last week during a long overdue vacation, a close friend of mine recommended reading the autobiography of Rich DeVos called Simply Rich.

DeVos is a billionaire entrepreneur who started countless ventures during his nine decades on this earth.

Back in the 1946, for example, DeVos started an airline… virtually overnight.

He just bought an airplane and started flying people around. No rules. No regulations.

They didn’t even have an airport. The local airfield north of Grand Rapids, Michigan, where they were based, hadn’t been completed yet.

As DeVos recounts in his book, “We put pontoon floats on our plane and took off and landed on the Grand River, which ran along the airfield.”

His first office at the airfield was an old chicken coop that he found, washed in the river, and re-painted.

The following year he and his partner opened up one of Michigan’s first “Drive Through” restaurants at the airfield, catering to passengers, workers, flight

students, and spectators who came by in the evenings just to marvel at the planes.

Again, no rules. No regulations.

They just saw an opportunity and went for it.

DeVos started another business selling ice cream; another offering fishing excursions on Lake Superior; and another delivering trucks cross-country.

The truck delivery business was one of the more interesting ones; it started when he was just a kid– someone asked him to drive two pickups from Grand

Rapids to Bozeman, Montana.

There were no hotels or motels… or even interstates back then.

So DeVos and his friend had to zig-zag their way across corn fields to get there, sleeping on haystacks each night along the way.

The book is a hell of an adventure– a reminder of how free and unencumbered things used to be.

Back in America’s heyday, people succeeded based on their hard work, ingenuity, and willingness to take action.

They didn’t have to spend three years filling out paperwork so that some government bureaucracy could justify its existence.

It was an environment that created unparalleled opportunity and prosperity which, candidly, have long since faded.

Today there are rules for everything; in fact, just this morning, the US federal government published an astonishing 709 pages of new regulations.

And that’s just for today. They publish new regulations every single business day. So tomorrow there will be even more.

These rules make it more difficult to produce, to start a business, to sell a product or service to a willing consumer.

And these rules carry costs, whether it’s in paying a fee, filling out paperwork, etc.

So just imagine the effect that literally decades worth of rules and regulations has had on US productivity (which is now noticeably contracting, even according

to government data.)

It’s also worth noting that roughly 30% of occupations in the Land of the Free now require some sort of government license.

In its study “License to Work”, the Institute for Justice reports that 45 out of 50 of the largest cities in the United States have put up substantial obstacles to prevent

budding entrepreneurs from selling food from street carts.

A manicurist in Alabama requires 163 days of training, while a shampoo specialist at a Tennessee hair salon must undergo 70 days of training, take two exams, and

pay $140 in fees to obtain a license.

Hawaii requires fire alarm installers to undergo a whopping four years of training, pass two exams, and pay $380 in fees to obtain a license.

And a tree trimmer in California must also undergo four years of training, pass two exams, and pay $851 in fees to obtain a license.

It’s absurd.

Nothing that Rich DeVos his partner accomplished in their teens and 20s is even legal anymore.

It makes me think about all the people today who will never have the chance to realize their full potential thanks to the mountain of regulations blocking their way.

This is an important point to understand.

Looking at the data– the incredible overregulation, $20 trillion in debt, insolvent pension funds, etc., it’s painfully obvious that the US is past its prime and holding back

millions of people from achieving greater prosperity.

Rich DeVos started so many businesses back in the 1940s because the government stayed out of the way and enabled hard-working risk takers to succeed.

Today the government spends $2 billion to build a website and churns out hundreds of pages of regulations each day.

And this trend gets worse each year.

Understanding this simple reality doesn’t mean that you’re pessimistic, unpatriotic, or expecting the end of the world.

It just makes you rational.

Things change. That’s the bottom line.

The US is still a fantastic place. But it’s no longer the same Land of Opportunity it was when Rich DeVos was getting started.

As I’ve summarized before, the US is a great place to consume… but an increasingly difficult place to PRODUCE.

That imbalance has serious long-term consequences, which we are only starting to experience.

Do you have a Plan B?
