Kavanaugh report shows why the
presumption of innocence is key

The Hill, by Thomas Jipping

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/8/2018 9:37:05 AM

“All the presumptions of law independent of evidence are in favor of innocence,” the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts said in 1850. “Every person is presumed to be innocent until he is proved guilty.” (Snip) One of the most disturbing things to emerge from the failed campaign to keep Justice Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court is the willingness of some, including powerful senators, to abandon this human right. They gambled that, by weaponizing sordid gossip, they could simply bully their way past the presumption of innocence. That is why the principle is innocent until “proven” guilty, not

Comments:
Proven guilty, not accused guilty.

You won’t hear Democrats talking about the Kavanaugh report… 414 pages of Dem chicanery carried to the level of institutional corruption.

I am 100 percent pro-Kavanaugh, but our side keeps getting one thing wrong. Testimony -- including the testimony of accusers -- is "evidence." The problem is that the testimony of the accuser was negated by the testimony of Kavanaugh. And, there was no other evidence to tip the balance away from the presumption of innocence. In fact, the opposite was true. Everyone she named as a corroborating witness either failed to support her, or contradicted her.

Vice President Mike Pence told reporters Monday that the White House counsel’s office is looking into and the president is considering declaring a national emergency over the crisis at the U.S. southern border. Pence told reporters that the president has made no decision on whether to declare a national emergency. Reporters asked how thoroughly the White House was considering declaring a national emergency and whether such a declaration would get locked up in court challenges. President Trump is considering the possibility of declaring a national emergency, according to Pence, who said they are also considering what Congress

According to The Hill, CNN and Fox News Channel are planning to air Trump’s address on border security, while the basic cable networks CBS, NBC, and ABC have not committed one way or the other. MSNBC has not made a public comment one way or the other, and the network has repeatedly opted not to air Trump events before.

Texas authorities arrested and charged a man in the fatal shooting of 7-year-old girl Jazmine Barnes, whose death captured national attention and sparked a manhunt for the killer. (Snip)Now here is a new twist. The family said the killer was a “white male in his 30s” but he was a black male… This is odd because the family who witnessed the shooting described the killer to the police.

Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, and they´re giving credit to a tip from social activist and writer Shaun King. The arrest of Eric Black Jr. -- who said he was driving the vehicle used in the shooting -- came as a result of a tip King received and sent to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, the sheriff said Sunday. "He became a target in our investigation based on a tip that initially went to journalist and activist Shaun King," Gonzalez told reporters. "Mr. King then passed that tip to me personally."

Eric Black Jr., 20, was arrested Saturday in a traffic stop for not using his turn signal.

CNN worked with Obama to set up Donald John Trump and saddle him with an unwarranted investigation. Obama used an intelligence briefing to slip some memos into the stack of papers given to the president-elect. Those memos were part of a Russian Dossier -- opposition research that Obama and Hillary paid millions for. On January 10, 2017, CNN reported, “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him,” under a quadruple byline that included Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, anchor Jake Tapper, and reporters Evan Perez and Jim Sciutto.

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” House Armed Service Committee chairman Rep.

There is a provision in the law that says the president can declare an emergency. It’s been done a number of times, but

Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is creating fresh controversy in her second week in the House of Representatives, but this time it´s over a shocking, anti-Semitic slur leveled at her Congressional colleagues for their support of a bill which would allow local, state, and federal agencies to avoid doing business with entities that support the anti-Israel Boycott-Divestment-Sanction (or BDS) movement.

When Elizabeth Warren announced her presidential campaign on New Year’s Eve, she also launched a discussion about misogyny and media. This happened because a common observation of Warren is that she’s simply not likeable enough to win the presidency. To some, this is a problematic opinion. Even acknowledging the existence of this perception, they suggest, is a sexist structural obstacle created by the patriarchy to keep strong women in their place.

The Most Successful Coverup

Since Watergate, the Washington wisdom has always held that it’s not the crime, it’s the coverup that sinks a politician. But that’s only the case when the coverup fails. But what if the coverup succeeds? It’s horribly simple. The crimes are never uncovered and the perpetrators are never brought to justice no matter how serious their crimes may be. That is precisely what has happened because of the FBI and Justice Department’s coverup of their abuses of power and illegal actions during the 2016 election. In this case, the FBI and the Justice Department have succeeded in the most significant coverup
