Menendez trial in turmoil as jurors
admit hearing explosive comments

New Jersey Star-Ledger, by Thomas Moriarty and MaryAnn Spoto

NEWARK -- Seven of the 16 jurors and alternates in the trial of U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez raised their hands when U.S. District Judge William Walls on Monday morning asked whether they´d heard or read anything about the case, prompting the judge to take them into his chambers individually to get more details. The inquiry came after defense attorneys in the trial noted that widespread news coverage of an excused juror´s public statements may have tainted the remaining members of the panel. The defense said they were concerned about statements made to the press by Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby on Thursday after she was

It saddens me to say I´ve lost faith in jury trials. If you´re a minority, it seems, all it takes is one minority on the jury to get a not guilty verdict when evidence is overwhelming.

This juror is saying, according to this article, that she was the only one that was voting not guilty for Menendez. I has heard previously that most were for not guilty and only a few were voting guilty.

Mistrial? Seems like would be a win for Menendez.

When millions are at stake, or celebrities are on trial, juries of common people get flummoxed and insecure. They build up the defendant into a God-like figure and then they go wobbly for no reason what-so-ever except imagined possibilities. They are only people. They feel small and vulnerable. Even though the movie "12 Angry Men" was an absurdity, it is worth watching again. They let a perfectly guilty person walk all because of fake evidence illegally introduced into the jury room and failed to deliver justice because of their own prejucides and self doubts.

Having served on two criminal cases juries, one both as Jury Foreman ond one a death penalty case, I can say from my experience the jurors invovled have absolutely nothing in commmon with the sterotypes mentioned. They took their job seriously and there was considerable and productive debate. And just because a jury member is black doesn´t mean they vote based on color. I didn´t witness anything of the sort. Placing common, untrained people on juries is placing huge burden on those individuals chosen. However, I would much rather take my chances with true jurors of my peers than professional (and easily corruptible) jurors. Is the system perfect, no. But serving on a jury is the only responsiblity the Constitution grants where common citizens have a direct say on the outcome of a goobernment process. It is the ultimate check and balance.

Sadly I agree with #14. Judge Nep on F&F this AM spelled out potential reasons for mis-trial, mostly the actions of the judge, i.e., precise daily quitting times, no Friday court, and this in spite of the fact he knew about the jurors vacation plans. Why let her on the jury in the first place if you were just gonna let her leave before finishing? Pick folks who are there for the duration. As to the quality of jurors, many are just no-loads who are not smart enough to have a reason to get dismissed. My peers, Meh? Menendez walks...justice served? Not!

I´ll bet a bent nickel that Menendez will walk free as a bird when this is all over. And he will go around telling everyone just that it was something cooked up. And then he will simply return doing the same things all over. After all, he was found innocent.

I recall hearing the late Justice Scalia interviewed about jury trials vs. bench trials, where a judge determines the facts and renders a decision. He said that if he were charged with a crime and innocent, he´d prefer a bench trial; if he were guilty, he´d opt for a jury trial. ´Nuff said.

Having served on many juries in both civil and criminal cases, I´ve seen misconduct by jurors that almost set my hair on fire. A lot of jurors refuse to follow clearly stated instructions from the trial judge. Twice I´ve threatened to summon the bailiff, and both times the miscreants backed down. One juror in a trial for a robbery kept yammering about the film "Twelve Angry Men." Great film, and a terrible standard to set.

Menendez´ attorney probably dropped the word, "disenfranchised", after asking him if he´d like to get off the charges, sooner than later. Then we have this gem of a juror say what she said.
Don´t worry though the American media hasn´t forgotten about Bob´s faux paux with the underage Dominican Republic prostitutes and are going to add him to the list of culprits, any day now. Right? /s.

The climatistas and their toadies in the media can’t stop scratching their heads and asking/demanding why conservatives/Republicans refuse to credit “the science” about climate change. Maybe because of articles like the one in the New York Times today, which makes clear that the left sees climate change as an excuse for a massive political power grab: The Climate Crisis: It’s Capitalism, Stupid By Benjamin Y.

Trump administration to end provisional

The Trump administration has given nearly 60,000 Haitians with provisional legal residency in this country 18 months to leave, announcing Monday that it will not renew the Temporary Protected Status that has allowed them to remain here for more than seven years. The decision came after the Department of Homeland Security determined that the “extraordinary conditions” justifying their presence in the United States following a 2010 earthquake “no longer exist,” according to a senior administration official. “Since the 2010 earthquake, the number of displaced people in Haiti has decreased by 97 percent,” acting homeland security secretary Elaine Duke said in a statement.

Stephen King specializes in giving readers nightmares, but his latest bestselling novel, 11/22/63, draws its strength from a wistful, widely shared daydream.(Snip)To place Mr. Kennedy in the same pantheon as Lincoln and Roosevelt is absurd. Lincoln presided over the Civil War and freed the slaves, Roosevelt laid the foundations for the American welfare state and led a reluctant nation into the Second World War. Mr. Kennedy had no comparable achievements. Save for the assassin´s bullet that gave him a martyr´s halo, he was a mediocre president, distinguished mainly by his combination of eloquent rhetoric and often-reckless foreign policy.

The Ultimate Argument for Roy Moore

The argument has little to do with Roy Moore, and even less with what is acceptable behavior. It is about what Lenin succinctly called “who, whom?” — who can do what to whom or, as Amos ’n Andy used to say, who’s gonna be the “do-er” and who the “do-ee,” neither more nor less. The reason why the bipartisan ruling class of officials, corporate executives, educators, the media, entertainment, etc. demand Roy Moore’s political scalp is that it fell on Moore to be the focus of a pivotal effort to detach the Republican Party from that ruling class.

The Islamic State caliphate is crumbling, but President Trump is right to keep some military forces in Syria. Speaking on Thursday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis explained that the U.S. would retain forces there to help peace efforts and keep a lid on any threats that emerge in the post-ISIS era. As Mattis put it, "We´re trying to move everything out of Astana over to Geneva, so we can come up with the next steps. Those next steps will have to do with how do you set up a political reconciliation. That plan would involve an election of some kind, under international

It wasn’t that long ago when black people were mostly Republicans because the GOP was the party of Lincoln. One of the most prominent black Republicans was the Rev. Martin Luther King Sr. — until his son Martin Luther King Jr. found himself in a Georgia jail in1960 after a civil rights protest, and needed Sen. John F. Kennedy’s help to get him out. Not only did Daddy King vote for Kennedy that November but he helped the Democrat win the black vote on his way to the White House, a victory Democrats have enjoyed ever since. Which brings us to LaVar Ball.

There’s an old moral precept, derived from classical teaching, that virtue is its own reward. Right about now liberals may be slowly coming to learn the wisdom behind this thought. You can see this in the way many liberals are now engaged in self-flaggelation about whether Clinton should have resigned from office in 1998 when the Lewinsky scandal blew up. To be sure, much of this is political posturing, since Democrats want to use the sex harassment issue to defeat a Republican senate candidate next month. But the situational ethics of liberals is not exactly a new observation. A better question

FBI and Justice Department officials have told congressional investigators in recent days that they have not been able to verify or corroborate the substantive allegations of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign outlined in the Trump dossier. The FBI received the first installment of the dossier in July 2016. It received later installments as they were written at the height of the presidential campaign, which means the bureau has had more than a year to investigate the allegations in the document. The dossier was financed by the Hillary Clinton campaign and compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele. An

Polls show voters are jumping to the same conclusion as much of Washington: that President Trump “colluded” with Vladimir Putin to steal the presidential election. But the evidence doesn’t back that up. Instead, such perceptions are driven by a number of key government and media assertions, which on closer inspection, dissolve into illusion: MYTH: “We have 17 intelligence agencies that know — with great certitude — that [the DNC hacking] was done by the Russians [to help Trump],” House Intelligence Committee member Rep.

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison.

Over the last few days, I’ve had a number of conversations with both right- and left-leaning friends about the political futures of Al Franken and Roy Moore. Without equating the severity of the alleged offenses (Moore’s are obviously worse), I’ve been struck by the extent to which people across the political spectrum will tolerate misconduct in politicians that they’d never, ever tolerate in their own workplaces. In most functioning corporations, if there’s pictorial evidence that a senior executive groped a woman, then that executive is forced to resign. If there are known, credible allegations that an applicant for a senior
