Biden Comment on Chauvin Trial Stuns Legal Observers

Unbelievable.

America and her people are in a tense situation at the moment, and you would think that the President would be looking to bring some calm and clarity to the situation.  Instead, Joe Biden has stepped into a massive controversy by weighing in on the case before the jury has even finished their deliberation.

Jurors are currently examining the case of Derek Chauvin, the police officer who was kneeling on George Floyd’s neck when he died, looking to decide if he is culpable for the man’s death.

All the while, our nation fears that certain outcomes could lead to mass violence, rioting, and looting.

Now, as President Biden weighs in on the case, there are fears that his statement could be considered tampering with the process.

As the nation awaits a verdict by the jury in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, President Biden said on Tuesday he is “praying the verdict is the right verdict.”

Briefly speaking with reporters at the White House, the president discussed his call on Monday with the family of George Floyd, the Black man in Minnesota who died after he was seen on video – handcuffed – saying “I can’t breathe” as Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck. His death sparked nationwide protests last spring and summer over police brutality against minorities and systemic racism.

Chauvin is charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd’s death. He has pleaded not guilty to all three charges.

Fellow Democrat Maxine Waters has also garnered criticism for injecting herself into the case, after she was reported to have told constituents to be “more confrontational” regarding the issue – something that could certainly weigh on the minds of jurors as they deliberate.

Jenna Ellis, a lawyer working for Donald Trump, blasted Biden for the statement, tweeting simply “RIP due process”.

Donald Trump Drops Major 2024 Hint While on the Golf Course

It may not be official yet, but was there ever really any doubt?

Published

on

Will he or won’t he?  And if so, when will he?

These are the sorts of questions that have haunted the GOP, and the nation at large, for some time, specifically in regard to the possibility of Donald Trump once again joining the 2024 political fray as a Republican presidential candidate, (and presumptive nominee).

Trump has largely played coy thus far, likely due to the coming 2022 midterms and the fact that the GOP looks poised to take back the House and Senate in that contest.  Should Trump jump too early, it would give Democrats a rather obtuse target to attack ahead of the election.

But that’s not to say that he’s not dropping hints at just about every turn…even on the golf course.

Donald Trump has confidently declared himself the “45th and 47th” US president.

The former president made the remarks while playing a round of golf at one of his clubs, according to a video being shared widely on social media on Wednesday.

As Trump was filmed walking to the first tee, one of his playing partners could be heard saying: “Now on the tee, the 45th president of the United States.”

“The 45th and 47th,” a grinning Trump quickly fired back.

He received immediate affirmative reactions.

His playing partners cheered his response, with one of them saying: “Yes, I love that.”

YouTube Jumps the Shark, Bans Fox News Host’s Personal Channel

YouTube somehow thinks that it has arbitrary authority over content and content creators that cable TV deems appropriate.

Published

What arrogance YouTube must have.  What absolute cojones.

The internet’s premiere video streaming site, which began life as a place for cat videos and other such nonsense, now believes themselves to be the arbiters of all that is fit for consumption, eschewing the standards and practices of the FCC-regulated world for rules all their own.

They’ve now even taken to suggesting that what’s allowed to be broadcast on television is no longer suitable for their audience, and for no reason other than the company’s political slant.

YouTube banned Fox News host Dan Bongino, forever deplatforming one of the internet’s most popular conservative commentators.

The popular video service run by Google said Bongino tried to circumvent a one-week ban for spreading COVID-19 misinformation on one channel by posting on another channel, resulting in a permanent suspension.

“We terminated Dan Bongino’s channels for circumventing our Terms of Service by posting a video while there was an active strike and suspension associated with the account,” YouTube said in a statement to USA TODAY. “When a channel receives a strike, it is against our Terms of Service to post content or use another channel to circumvent the suspension.”

Bongino, whose rhetoric appears to still pass muster in the established world of cable media, has once again proven that Silicon Valley isn’t interested in what’s right so much as it is interested in how far left they can skew the overall balance of the American media picture.
