In shocking move, feds drop all
charges against Sen. Bob Menendez

NJ.com, by Ted Sherman

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/31/2018 4:49:00 PM

In a shocking turnaround, the U.S. Justice Department has dropped its case against U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez. In a court in Newark on Wednesday, federal prosecutors moved to dismiss the corruption indictment against the New Jersey Democrat after a federal judge last week acquitted Menendez and his co-defendant, Salomon Melgen, of seven of the 18 counts against them. Both were facing a retrial after a deadlocked jury could not reach a verdict in the high-profile case in November. (Snip) In a statement, Menendez said he never wavered in his innocence and his belief that justice would prevail.

Comments:
The order of dismissal was signed by Chief Judge Jose Linares, who was nominated by George W. Bush. Menendez never feared because there are different standards for Democrats, especially those from the Garbage State. Menendez, as I remember it, also is known for soliciting underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic and perhaps elsewhere. The same GOPers that just stuck us with Democrat Sen. Doug Jones in favor of strict constitutionalist Roy Moore take no issue with any of this.

Oh, and by "shocking," the writer meant "entirely predictable." I am livid.

Nothing here should surprise us. After all, Sessions has made it crystal clear his DOJ is not going after corrupt federal employees at high levels. I do not care if Rosenstein was responsible for this call. Sessions is the AG. Sessions must be replaced and fast.

Washington — Funding for the Gateway Tunnel project was included the transportation spending bill heading to the House floor, despite opposition from President Donald Trump. The House Appropriations Committee approved money for the new tunnel under the Hudson River and new Portal Bridge across the Hackensack River in the $71.8 billion transportation spending bill for the 12 months beginning Oct. 1. Money for Gateway would be spread across several rail accounts that are given $3.2 billion, $2.1 billion more than Trump proposed, including money targeted to the Northeast Corridor.

Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader who pretended she was black only to be unmasked as a white woman in 2015, has been accused of welfare fraud. Dolezal, who legally changed her name to Nkechi Diallo in 2016, was charged this week with theft by welfare fraud, perjury and false verification for public assistance. Court documents said she illegally received $8,747 in food assistance and $100 in child care assistance from August 2015 through November 2017.

Multiple people have been injured in a shooting at an Oklahoma City restaurant, police say. The shooting, which has killed at least one and injured five, broke out about 6.30pm inside Louie´s Grill and Bar. Captain Beau Matthews told reporters the shooter, a white male who walked in and began randomly shooting, was the person killed. He was shot by a citizen also carrying a handgun as he tried to run away from the scene. An adult woman and young girl, both believed to be customers, were shot in the attack. Both have been taken to hospital for surgery.

In May 1961, an elderly woman in Paris heard a knock at the door of her six-story walk-up apartment. It was only the most powerful man in the world. The president of the United States was going door-to-door hoping to find the call girl he had discreetly arranged to meet. John F. Kennedy, it turned out, used a fake excuse about a doctor’s visit to attend a long-arranged dalliance while in Paris for a crucial summit, only to wind up in the wrong building, knocking on the doors of random Parisians who were left with the surprise of their lives.

A woman in Texas made a startling claim earlier this week accusing a state trooper of raping her during a DWI arrest, but a newly released body camera footage has exposed her claims as lies and prompted her high-profile lawyer to issue a public apology. The Texas Department of Public Safety said in a statement on Tuesday that just after 1.30am on Sunday, Texas highway Patrol Trooper Daniel Hubbard saw a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu traveling south on Interstate 35 in Ellis County and pulled the vehicle over for a traffic violation.

A black former Eastern Michigan University student who admitted to painting racist graffiti on campus has been ordered to pay more than $2,000 in restitution. Eddie Curlin, 29, was sentenced on Monday after earlier pleading guilty to malicious destruction of property. He also pleaded no contest to unrelated counts of identity theft and must serve two-to-five years in prison on those charges. He was granted credit for 220 days served, reported Mlive.com. Curlin, who was an EMU student from 2014 to early 2016, was accused of scrawling messages of hate on three separate occasions between the fall of 2016 and the spring of

Junkies have been dumping some 5,000 used needles a week in parks across The Bronx — prompting desperate city officials to install dozens of syringe-disposal kiosks in hopes of cleaning up the dangerous mess. There has been a dramatic gain in the number of syringes found in parks in The Bronx in recent years because of the ongoing opioid epidemic, city Health Department officials say. The 60 kiosks, which will be locked trash boxes placed in the hardest-hit Bronx parks, are part of a $60 million HealingNYC program to combat the drug plague, announced Monday.

Hillary Clinton continued to attack the Electoral College system used to elect U.S. presidents on Friday, calling it an "odd system" and contrary to the idea of "one person, one vote." "I know this is another really obvious thing to say. Vote in every election, not just presidential elections," Clinton said at Harvard University, in a clip flagged by NTK Network. "You know, it is maddening because one of the panelists said we get the government that we vote for. Now, we have this odd system with the Electoral College."

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns. Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded a pledge of ideological fealty to the

President Barack Obama took a light swing at his successor during a tech conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday. His eight years in office were scandal free, he told the audience. "I didn´t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn´t be something you brag about," Obama joked.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

Shortly before the protest was set to begin at 4 p.m., Publix issued a statement regarding the suspension of corporate-funded

Until 1968, Walter Cronkite believed what his government told him about the Vietnam War. He was an old-school journalist, a patriot, a man who came of age covering World War II as a wire-service reporter and then taking over as the anchor of “The CBS Evening News” at the height of the Cold War. Like most journalists of his generation, he embraced the fight against communism and understood why the United States had intervened in the war raging in Vietnam. When he’d visited Vietnam on a reporting trip early in the war, he’d been annoyed by the attitude of the young
