According to Fox News, “Navy prosecutors are still pursuing murder charges against Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher even after bombshell testimony Thursday by a Navy colleague who confessed that he was the one to kill the teenage Islamic State fighter.”
SEAL Team Seven Medic Corey Scott testified under an immunity agreement that he killed the fighter by placing his “thumb over his TT tube until he quit breathing,” suffocating the fighter. While being cross-examined, Scott claimed he killed him because he “knew he was going to die anyway,” and he “wanted to save him from what was going to happen next,” implying torture being applied to the terrorist by the Iraqis.
Prosecutors are now trying to claim that Scott only admitted to suffocating the fighter because he was protected by the immunity agreement and he did not want to see his colleague go to jail.
Again and again, Eddie Gallagher’s case has resulted in decisions by the court that would never withstand a legal test in a civilian court of law. Gallagher is a decorated SEAL with 19 years of service who earned a Bronze Star with V for Valor twice, a Meritorious Unit Commendation and a trio of Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medals.
Federal law enforcement officials raided a Philadelphia’s port this week and discovered a massive amount of cocaine. 33,000 pounds of cocaine were found inside seven shipping containers. Based on my experience on an FBI criminal squad in NYC, drug trafficking on the east coast is nothing new. However, it is clear that they are likely looking for alternatives to the southern border due to the heightened law enforcement presence there.
This is a clear signal that President Trump’s border policies are working. While it may seem like a game of whack-a-mole, in this version the hole gets sealed off so the mole cannot come through it anymore.
If President Trump continues pushing border legislation then eventually our border will become fully secure and there will be practically zero moles to whack.
Cocaine use and overdose deaths have been on a rise in the U.S. for the first time in years after Columbia, the source of 90% of the cocaine supply to the U.S., has greatly increased its production. Hopefully, we can stop the illegal import of these substances and save American lives.
On Friday, New York City announced a budget deal that will directly fund abortions. This will be the first budget passed by any city that directly funds abortion. Additionally, New York City already funds Planned Parenthood, the organization that murders children who were not products of people who planned their parenthood.
Abortion is legal murder, made possible by leftists that have confused their constituents so much that they actually conflate the phrase “health care” with the definition of the word killing. Life begins at conception, according to Princeton University, a new organism, a new individual is created at conception.
This new budget from New York City is expected to help over 500 women murder their children annually. This can cost up to $3000 per abortion, so the people of New York City are going to potentially be paying an additional $150,000 per year to take the lives of innocent children. The left celebrates at passing this kind of legislation, they berate anyone who tries to fight it because that person is supposedly taking away a “woman’s right to choose.”
This is a fallacy, no one, including women, has the right to choose whether an innocent child should die.
The Supreme Court has two weeks to issue rulings on 24 cases, including decisions that will affect the census citizenship question. These rulings will be indicative of how the conservative majority will rule in the future. Last years appointment of Brett Kavanaugh, which created this conservative majority, has been extremely controversial as the Democrats wanted to prevent their loss of power in the court.
The biggest problem I personally have with all the Supreme Court decisions is that they are split along ideological lines which means they are not going to truly reflect what the constitution and founding fathers would want. The judges should not be ideologues when exercising judicial review, they should be computer-like decision makers that determine if the case is Constitutional or not.
As decided in Marbury v. Madison, the Constitution is paramount. The case explains how power granted to the government by the Constitution “are defined and limited; and that those limits may not be mistaken or forgotten, the Constitution is written.”
Ideology should be irrelevant when making these decisions. The idea of a “living and breathing” Constitution that leaves diverse interpretation possible is completely contradictory to what the goal of the founding fathers was.
Three NYPD officers have committed suicide in 9 days.
The first officer, Deputy Chief Steven Silks, was pronounced dead June 5th. He was found in his car suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. This was the night after he handed in his retirement papers after 38 years on the job. He was the chief of the second officer.
The second officer, Detective Joseph Calabrese, killed himself hours later. Calabrese was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound near his car close to Plumb Beach in Brooklyn. It has been suspected that both of these officers were involved in the Weiner laptop investigation.
The third officer was also found dead from a gunshot wound in a parked vehicle near Sanders Street. All three of these officers died similarly and without warning. People close to these officers were shocked at the news of their suicides.
Two things I want to know right now concerning these suicides:
1. Will the NYPD Treat this issue with more than window dressing?
2. Did any or all of these cops have anything to do with the Weiner laptop investigation?
