The trial has just started. Opening statements now. Evidence next.

Parents of slain Pizza Hut robber angry that victim used a gun against him By Thomas Lifson – “Self-defense is regarded as a right deriving from natural law. But that offers no justification to the parents of Michael Grace, Jr. of Charlotte, NC, who was shot to death while attempting to rob a Pizza Hut.”

“I am sorry, but robbing someone requires at least the threat of violence. If one asks for money without threatening violence, it is called “begging.” I don’t think it ought to be a capital crime, but the risks inherent in threatening violence belong on the sholders of the perpetrator.

I may be an extremist, but it seems to me that if one decides to commit a crime, the victims should have more rights than the perpetrator, especially the right to defend themselves from the presumption of violence that accompanies a robbery, home invasion, or other property crime.

Explosion over the Washington Swamp By Gary Gindler – “Everything that is described there has long been widely discussed in America. But none of the participants in these discussions have ever had any evidence. Now this evidence, gathered during the closed sessions of the Intelligence Committee, has become public.”

“In other words, the Obama administration used a dossier concocted by Russian agents to legitimize its surveillance of their political opposition.

Corruption in the highest echelons of power of the Obama administration is now no secret to anyone.

But the Washington swamp miscalculated. The publication of the memo removes the veil only over one episode of the war that U.S. intelligence agencies are waging against the sitting president. Soon, other memos will follow, including the expected report of the Inspector General about power abuses at the FBI.

The Watergate scandal lasted more than two years, while this Obamagate outrage is a little more than a year. The explosion of the memo over the Washington swamp is only the first blast. It’s not going to be a long wait for more bombshell revelations in this matter.

The media coverage has spent more time on the ‘rebuttal’ than on the contents of the memo. The Democrats and their Propaganda Machine are showing the same sense of values as those parents of the Pizza Hut robber.

Yay! Our team won! Let’s destroy stuff! By Thomas Lifson – “Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles were going to riot no matter what the outcome of the game.”

“The Philly Police had greased light poles with hydraulic fluid this time, having failed to deter fans from climbing them two weeks ago after their home town heroes won the National Conference championship using mere Crisco. It is unclear how many were deterred from climbing the poles, but enough fans managed to climb of the canopy of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel to collapse it.

congratulations to Philadelphia for finally winning a Super Bowl. Now, can we clean up the damage and stop harming strangers?

CBD: Another Charming Leftist Whose Words Pull Back The Curtain On Their Monstrous Political Philosophy – “Make no mistake, these people want us gone”

“Any study of the rise of totalitarianism will find that in its early stages street violence and intimidation were vital tools. We see intimidation every day, and street violence has recently become a popular response to conservative thought.

But America is different, of that I am sure. I simply cannot believe that a Leftist insurrection will be met with fear and surrender.

Paging Carter Page by Scott Johnson – “Our former FBI agent reader writes to take issue with Byron York’s assertion that the FBI wiretapped Carter Page in 2013. He says it’s much worse than that and that this is almost certainly what happened

“Bear in mind, the FBI can’t get a FISA warrant on a US Person just for talking to Russians. They have to show probable cause that the US Person is engaged in “clandestine intelligence activity” (i.e., real “spy stuff”) on behalf of the Russians. That’s not something that can ordinarily be established by a phone conversation or two since, by the very nature of the thing, “clandestine intelligence activity” is kept … clandestine.

Color me skeptical in the extreme that anything of the sort was presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. So I’d say there’s probable cause to believe that we haven’t heard the last of this, and it’s not going to get better.

The Democrat’s response memo is running the process. Others are planned. Hold on to your shorts.
