Obama-appointed federal judge has been removed from all his cases

An Obama-appointed federal judge has been removed from all his cases after admitting he illegally sent emails about at least one of the cases he was hearing.

According to the Associated Press:

A federal judge in two of Illinois’ highest profile cases has been removed from hearing all his criminal cases after it was revealed he exchanged emails with an employee at the U.S. attorney’s office in which he commented on and joked about one of his trials in progress at the time.

Some legal experts said Tuesday the matter could lead to a review of hundreds of cases to see if Judge Colin Bruce had sent out similarly inappropriate emails during trials before, a review process that could create trial delays and logjams at the U.S. District for Court for central Illinois.

“It is an understatement to say that this is outrageous,” said Phil Turner, a defense attorney in Chicago and a former federal prosecutor in northern Illinois with no cases before Bruce. “It’s extremely unusual and way beyond the pale.”

The judge was set to hear two of the most high profile cases in the region: the trial against former Congressman Aaron Schock and the case of a man accused of kidnapping and murdering Yingying Zhang, a Chinese scholar at the University of Illinois.

Now he won’t be hearing any cases.

Judge Bruce was placed in the federal court in October of 2013 and was appointed by Barack Obama. Before that he was as an assistant US Attorney in the Central District.

According to an announcement made by the Obama White House in 2013: “Bruce joined the United States Attorney’s Office in 1989 and has spent his entire 24-year legal career serving as an Assistant United States Attorney.”

Thomas Lifson of American Thinker amused us with his juxtaposition of the current media reports on the Manfort trial and the removal of Judge Bruce:

After weeks of progressive fulminations against Judge T.S. Ellis over his handling of the just-completed trial of Paul Manafort, a federal judge has been removed from all his criminal cases. To this dismay of those on the Left, he is an Obama appointee, Judge Colin Stirling Bruce of the Central District of Illinois

Heh. ZING!

REPORT: Smollett Tells ‘Empire’ Castmates ‘I Swear to God, I Did Not Do This’

WOW! Really, dude?

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was arrest by the Chicago PD and charged with a felony for a reason.

Authorities have good reason to believe he staged a hate crime against himself. It’s that simple.

The brothers who “attacked” Jussie even said they were paid by the openly gay actor to go after him.

Now, it is being reported that Smollett told his castmates that he didn’t do it.

From Daily Wire:

Actor Jussie Smollett surrendered to authorities on Thursday morning after he was charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report. Later in the day, Smollett was released from prison on $100,000 bond and headed to the set of his Fox show, “Empire,” where he reportedly begged his castmates for forgiveness while simultaneously maintaining his innocence.

“Sources on the ‘Empire’ set tell us the cast and crew were waiting at least 30 minutes for Jussie to begin the scheduled scene. When he eventually showed his face he was very emotional, and surrounded by his family,” says a report from TMZ.

Smollett apparently told the cast: “I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family. I swear to God, I did not do this.”

Check out this clip of a gay black veteran ripping Smollett to pieces, because you’re certainly not going to see it on MSNBC anytime soon.

WATCH:

Powerful!

Kudos to this American hero for speaking up and calling out Jussie for attempting to incite a race war.

Smollett has also officially been charged with a felony:

Smollett has a history of lying to law enforcement.

Back in 2007, he “provided false information” after receiving a DUI.

From Daily Wire:

Jussie Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license, and providing false information to law enforcement officials in 2007, according to new reports released on Tuesday.

“Tuesday the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office confirmed that in August of 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement,” CBS Chicago reported. “He was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail. Officials at the office could not confirm which Smollett chose. A spokesman for the Chicago Police Department said the department was already aware of the plea.”

Senators Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ) are both running for president. The chances that either person secures the Democrat nomination are slim, at best.

After hearing that Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and Harris rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”

Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.

Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett…

EXPOSED: Bernie Sanders Once Wrote Sex Fantasy About Woman Being Raped

Hey, MSM – Over here!

John Salvatore

Published

on

Vermont Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders has a wild past that includes praising communist nations and disparaging the United States.

Also, he once penned an op-ed in the 70s about how women fantasize about being raped.

If Bernie was a Republican and the mainstream media got word of this, he’d be toast.

Fortunately for Bernie, he gets a pass.

From Federalist Papers:

On his radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere took some time to revisit an essay Sanders wrote in 1972, originally for the Vermont Freeman. It’s…something else:

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday — and go to Church, or maybe to their ‘revolutionary’ political meeting.

Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like ‘Girl 12 raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?

WATCH:

Back in November 2018, dozens and dozens of people showed up for Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s rally featuring Sanders as the main speaker.

And that’s about it.

It would appear as if the auditorium is darn near entirely empty.

WATCH:

While offering zero evidence, Bernie labeled President Trump using four despicable words.

Any guesses?

….take a second to think about it…

………………………………..

Here they are: racist, sexist, homophobic, and bigoted.

Not exactly original, Bernie.

Sanders noted:

I just returned on Saturday from a nine-state tour working with great candidates all across this country. And I can tell you there are candidates and supporters working hour after hour to make sure we end one-party control of the United States government. They are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate.

He continued:

While taking back the House and the Senate is obviously of enormous importance, it is not enough. What we need right now, in governors’ chairs all across this country, are governors who are gonna stand with the working people; they’re gonna stand with the elderly; they’re gonna stand with the children; they’re gonna stand with the poor, and they’re gonna fight for an agenda and an economy for all of us, not just the one percent.
