Charges against Trump inauguration protesters dropped after prosecutors found to be lying about evidence.

Somebody was simply not telling the truth.

Courtesy of Law and Crime:

Ten men and women facing various felonies related to Inauguration Day protests against President Donald Trump had charges against them dismissed on Thursday, after unconstitutional and untoward behavior by the prosecution was discovered.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff and her team appeared to have hidden 69 recordings from the defense. Those recordings include 66 videos and three audio samples of the defendants originally made by employees at undercover media outlet Project Veritas.

The recordings reportedly show the defendants discussing methods to de-escalate tense situations and reveal their intent not to initiate violence with anyone else at the protest, a far cry from what the government has alleged in the case. Kerkhoff previously told Judge Robert Morin that no recordings existed from the meetings where those 69 recordings were made. In fact, at least 35 of those newly-revealed recordings were made at the meetings in question.

Defense attorney Andrew Clarke noted the alleged malfeasance in an overnight filing with the Washington D.C. Superior Court on Wednesday. He wrote:

“The Government has succeeded in misleading over 200 co-defendants, their attorneys, and three Honorable Superior Court Judges to believe there were only seven videos in its possession from Project Veritas. Only by Order of the Court and more recently, its own disclosures, we now know the truth, that the Government withheld 69 additional recordings by Project Veritas and altered others.”

So did you catch it? 

It’s right here: “the Government withheld 69 additional recordings by PROJECT VERITAS and altered others.”

This means that the prosecutors built a case around carefully edited tapes from none other than freaking James O’Keefe, the John Bannon protege and constant Fox News contributor who used similar tactics to take down ACORN and attack Planned Parenthood as well as other progressive institutions and politicians. 

The minute you hear mention of Project Veritas or James O’Keefe is the minute you have to realize that you are dealing with doctored tapes. 

THAT is what they do. 

Personally, I hope that these “protesters” turn around and file suit against this assistant US Attorney as well as Project Veritas for their part in attempting to frame them.

    “The jobs numbers are considered confidential information, because if they are leaked, they can be used for insider trading:”
    “A legitimate Congress, as in not one controlled by Republicans, would already be investigating who Trump gave these numbers to early and if they were used illegally to insider trade.

    Trump’s casual breaking of laws is the biggest reason why the nation needs to elect a Democratic Congress in November.”

      “I just asked Sarah Sanders if it was appropriate for President Trump to tweet about the jobs report before release this morning. She said it was, because “he didn’t put the numbers out.” She also confirmed that the President was briefed on the number last night.”

    “Campaign finance watchdog MapLight published a report Thursday that exposed three major corporations for their contributions to America First Policies — a pro-Trump “dark money” PAC established last year by Trump officials that has been criticized for its use of a racist, xenophobic, and sexist phrase.

    America First Policies received $1 million from gas and electric utility corporation Southern Co., $100,000 from Dow Chemical, and $500,000 from pharmaceutical retail chain CVS Health. According to disclosure forms, all three have reported lobbying on the Republican tax bill passed in December that dramatically cut the corporate tax rate from 35 to 21 percent.

    She was supposed to be a Russian bot. That seemed like the best explanation for @AmyMek. No normal person could be so prolific and prejudiced.

    For five years, the mysterious Twitter account ― which has more than 200,000 followers, including Sean Hannity, Roseanne Barr and the personal account of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and has earned endorsements from Donald Trump and Michael Flynn ― has tirelessly spewed far-right propaganda and, above all, Islamophobia. Around 25 tweets a day, sometimes more, the majority of them designed to stoke hatred of Muslims.

    Tweets like this:

      Her Twitter timeline was one long screed that reflected the collective id of the Make America Great Again movement. Tea party rage, evangelical hokum and white supremacy ― it was all there. In sufficient volume, this kind of hate can now turn any no-account right-winger into a star on social media. And it worked for @AmyMek.
      “Last Friday, after HuffPost asked the WWE a second time if anyone there had known about @AmyMek before hiring Siino, the company responded definitively.

      “No,” said the WWE spokesperson. “Now that it has come to our attention, Sal Siino is no longer an employee.””

    D.C. cops used ‘rape as punishment’ after Inauguration Day mass arrests, lawsuit says
    Wide array of unconstitutional tactics alleged in suit over chilling round-up that hit peaceful protesters, journalists, and anarchists alike.

    …An officer ordered Horse, fellow plaintiff Milo Gonzalez, and three others to take their pants off before grabbing their testicles and then inserting a finger into their anuses while “other officers laughed,” the complaint alleges. Horse is a photojournalist, one of six reporters initially arrested and charged whose cases have been dismissed.

    “I felt like they were using molestation and rape as punishment. They used those tactics to inflict pain and misery on people who are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty,” Horse said. “It felt like they were trying to break me and the others — break us so that even if the charges didn’t stick, that night would be our punishment.”

    TARIFF$: “Whiskey may be made everywhere from Brooklyn to Scotland but in 1964, Congress declared bourbon “America’s Native Spirit.” That means to be called bourbon, it must be made in the U.S. But really, everyone knows that means Kentucky—95 percent of the world’s bourbon is made in Kentucky.”

    ” Mounk identifies three key drivers of voters’ discontent: stagnating living standards, fear of multiethnic democracy, and the rise of social media. To reverse the trend, politicians need to enact radical reforms that benefit the many, not the few.

    The People vs. Democracy is the first book to describe both how we got here and what we need to do now. For those unwilling to give up either individual rights or the concept of the popular will, Mounk argues that urgent action is needed, as this may be our last chance to save democracy.”

    OT? Fyi “Gunfire erupted as hundreds of thousands of “Mother’s Day” (celebrated in Nicaragua on May 30) demonstrators were coming to the end of their march route at the UCA. The protest was led by mothers of students and peaceful demonstrators who have been killed by police and pro-government forces since the start of a nationwide political crisis on April 18.”
    “The UCA statement also asserts that the university “stands on the side of the people in their struggle for justice,” and denounces the attacks on peaceful demonstrators that have been carried out by individuals loyal to the government with impunity. They also called on Nicaragua and international bodies to stand in solidarity with the Nicaraguan people and to seek mechanisms to resolve the crisis that is “is reaching levels of massacre against the unarmed civilians.””Voices of support for the UCA are coming from across the Jesuit network in Americas. The Jesuits of Canada and the United States issued a statement of support for the Jesuits and the Nicaraguan bishops, denouncing recent violence in Nicaragua and calling for justice. From Central America, the UCA El Salvador issued a statement showing support for all Nicaraguan people particularly students seeking democracy, liberty, and opportunity.”

    2018: Year Of The White Supremacist Candidate

    In the era of Republican hate politics, white supremacists are feeling their oats. According to reports, there are 8 white supremacists running for office in 2018: Patrick Little (CA-Sen), Arthur Jones (IL-03), both featured in the report above, and six others, including Paul Nehlen (WI-01) and Corey Stewart (VA-Sen).

    Watch Arthur Jones tell reporter Morgan Radford that “black people are inferior.” When she tells him she went to Harvard, Jones explains that it’s her “white blood” fueling her intellect. He does this with a straight face and with absolute sincerity.

    And then there is the case of Patrick Little, running against Dianne Feinstein for the Senate. In spite of the anemic denunciation by California Republicans, Little continues to mount a viable bid to run in the general election against Feinstein, a Jew.

    Little thinks Jews are “monsters” who are to blame for every ill falling upon society. He is an avowed white supremacist and unabashed in his quest to spread hate to every corner of the state of California.

    Neither of these candidates are likely to win, but that’s hardly the point. We have not seen the rise of “out” white supremacists like this since the David Duke days, and even then there was more collective horror expressed than there is now. Here is a map of all the white supremacists running for office, via The Nation.

    FYI-Something used everyday…Makes one wonder…

    http://www.businessinsider.com/facebook-removes-trending-news-section-from-homepage-2018-6

    “”From research we found that over time people found the product to be less and less useful,” Facebook’s head of news products, Alex Hardiman, said in a blog post on Friday. “We will remove Trending from Facebook next week and we will also remove products and third-party partner integrations that rely on the Trends API.”

    Facebook said that the module accounted for less than 1.5% of the clicks to news publishers and that internal research said people found “the product to be less and less useful.”

    Facebook said it was experimenting with other news products, including a section called Today In that includes breaking and local news. It also said it was launching a dedicated section for live coverage and daily news briefings in its Watch product.”

    OT: “In his statement to CNN, Avenatti wrote that Tobin did “limited work as an independent contractor for a short period of time” and that a billing dispute arose “that has now been fully resolved.”
    “The firm did nothing wrong and no court has ever found that the firm did anything wrong,” Avenatti wrote. “This is a complete sideshow and has nothing to do with my present work or cases. Who cares?””
