Judge Orders Police Not to Use Batons, Shields, Gas, Rubber Bullets, Chokeholds, Or Sound Cannons Against BLM Protesters



Judge Orders Police Not to Use Batons, Shields, Gas, Rubber Bullets, Chokeholds, Or Sound Cannons Against BLM Protesters

A federal judge temporarily banned Detroit police from using batons, shields, gas, rubber bullets, chokeholds, or sound cannons against Black Lives Matter protesters.

U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Michelson partially granted a temporary restraining order Detroit Will Breathe sought when it sued the city of Detroit, alleging that police were using excessive force to stop them from exercising their free speech rights. The order will be in effect for at least 14 days and forbids police from using force without probable cause.

If I was a cop I would walk off the job because it’s unsafe. These liberal judges should go out there and fight the rioters without any protection.

A federal judge in Detroit has ordered the city’s police not to use batons, tear gas, shields, chokeholds, rubber bullets, sound cannons, or any other type of non-lethal force against protesters for the next two weeks.

The late Friday ruling granted a temporary restraining order to the activist group Detroit Will Breathe, which sued the city on Monday, claiming that excessive police force infringed upon their protesters’ First Amendment rights, the Detroit Free Press reported.

U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Michelson’s order stops police from using any type of force during protests without “probable cause.”

“For a short period, we know that the police will not be able to use the brutal tactics they have in the past against peaceful protesters without violating a court order,” said Jack Schulz, who filed the order on behalf of the group.

But Detroit Police Chief James Craig said the police have not used force against peaceful protesters.

“We’re going to continue to do our jobs the way we’ve done it,” he said. “We respect peaceful protesters. We understand the judge’s order and we’ll make sure the protesters understand if there’s any aggression or violation of law, they will get ample notice like we’ve done in the past.”

The lawsuit claimed that some of the officers’ use of force had left some protesters hospitalized. More

This is a perfect example of a feckless liberal judge substituting her personal feelings over the law as evidenced by “the order was entered without an evidentiary hearing.” Peaceful protesting is not violating the rights of others by blocking streets and highways, littering by throwing bricks and fireworks, torching city vehicles, and businesses.

President Trump Gives Lt. Gen Michael Flynn Full Pardon

After years of unfair persecution by an out of control judiciary and a corrupt FBI, President Donald Trump has now given Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn a full pardon.



After years of unfair persecution by an out of control judiciary and a corrupt FBI, President Donald Trump has now given Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn a full pardon.

In Dec. of 2017, Flynn foolishly agreed to plead guilty to the false charges of “lying” to federal officials after he was put in a perjury trap by corrupt FBI persecutors earlier that year. But after reams of proof began rolling out proving that the FBI conducted an unlawful prosecution, Flynn fired his sold-out law team and hired Sidney Powell. They then attempted to withdraw his guilty plea.

Not long afterward, the U.S. Department of Justice also dropped the case against Flynn when the evidence became undeniable that the FBI lied and perpetrated a flawed, politically motivated, and corrupt case.

However, the corrupt judge in the case, Clinton appointee Emmet G. Sullivan, refused to drop the case against Flynn even though he had no legal power to keep the case alive. Sullivan wanted to continue to politically persecute Flynn, enforce his guilty plea, and send him to jail. Sullivan even hired his own left-wing, Obamaite lawyer to push his claim that he had a right to continue Flynn’s case.

Sidney Powell failed miserably, despite spending millions of dollars that Flynn does not have, to get the case dismissed, thereby exonerating Flynn.

Now — perhaps on the verge of leaving the White House after *maybe* losing to Joe Biden –President Trump has stepped in and offered Flynn a full and unconditional pardon.

This is the right move. If the massive vote fraud that we saw in the 2020 election is not sorted out and Joe Biden does become president, Flynn’s goose will be cooked. It was Biden and Obama who persecuted Flynn in the first place and with the senile Biden putting all Obama’s corrupt operatives right back in place, Flynn would likely end up doing jail time.

So, Trump had no choice but to act now just in case he does not win re-election (which looks increasingly likely).

Flynn wanted full exoneration. But he can’t chance still having his case outstanding if Biden and his China-bought regime takes over in January.

Amy Coney Barrett Confirmed as Newest U.S. Supreme Court Justice

Judge Amy Coney Barrett was Confirmed as the newest Supreme Court Judge Monday evening making her Donald Trump’s third SCOTUS confirmation.



Judge Amy Coney Barrett was Confirmed as the newest Supreme Court Judge Monday evening making her Donald Trump’s third SCOTUS confirmation.

The U.S. Senate voted 52-48 on Monday to place the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judge and Notre Dame law professor on the Supreme Court.

The last president to get three justices was Ronald Reagan.

Per Fox News:

Monday’s vote marked the end of a confirmation process that lasted less than 40 days from when late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died to when her successor, Barrett, was confirmed. During that time Democrats objected loudly to the speed and timing of the confirmation just before an election. Meanwhile, Republicans have touted Barrett’s record as an academic and a judge as impeccable — and her “Well Qualified” rating from the American Bar Association (ABA) whose representatives relayed descriptions of her as “brilliant” and an “intellectual giant.”

Barrett will be sworn in by Justice Clarence Thomas.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) was the only Republican to vote against Barrett’s confirmation.

All 45 Democrats voted no on Barrett’s confirmation.

“This is something to really be proud of and feel good about. We made an important contribution to the future of this country,” Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said as the Senate advanced Barrett for confirmation. “A lot of what we’ve done over the last four years will be undone sooner or later by the next election … They won’t be able to do much about this for a long time to come.”

This is one of the most important things that can happen right now, that and the re-election of Donald Trump.

For too long, the courts have been undermining the United States Constitution and it is about time that we get a real originalist on the nation’s highest court.

Let’s pray that Barrett doesn’t betray the country like John Roberts has.

InfoWars’ Millie Weaver Utterly Exonerated, Media Ignores After Lambasting her for Arrest

InfoWars reporter Millie Weaver has been fully exonerated after being mysteriously arrested.



InfoWars reporter Millie Weaver has been fully exonerated after being mysteriously arrested shortly after releasing a documentary entitled, Shadowgate. The media was filled with attacks on her after her arrest. But now that she has been released and the charges dismissed, the media is silent.

Weaver’s documentary chronicles the deep state operatives in the Obamagate coup attempt perpetrated against President Donald Trump.

According to reports, Weaver was arrested after a grand jury passed a secret indictment charging her with robbery and domestic violence.

Millie uploaded a video of her arrest in her home.

Posted by Millie Weaver on Friday, August 14, 2020

But now, just as mysteriously as were the arrest of Weaver and her two companions, the charges were dropped, and the case thrown out.

The case was dismissed on October 21 and Weaver and her co-defendants were released.

But now, all charges have been dropped and Weaver has been released from the threat of prosecution.

Weaver spoke about the incident in a video:

Weaver was furious that she had been “kidnapped and arrested from my home in front of my children,” and she said the initial charges were a “miscarriage of justice.” She also said, “Thank you everyone who stood by me” and acknowledged the contributions to her legal defense fund without which she said she would have been bankrupted.

Speaking of the costs, Weaver told supporters that “The financial burden placed on me — an innocent person — was insane.” she asked everyone to spread the news because “the mainstream media [her arrest was widely covered] is probably not going to cover the fact that these charges were dropped.”

She is right, too. No one is reporting her release.

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s Legal Team Insist Judge Sullivan’s ‘Disqualification is Mandatory’ in Case

The legal team for former White House national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is demanding that Judge Emmet Sullivan be removed from the case.



The legal team for former White House national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn entered a new filing on Wednesday demanding that Judge Emmet Sullivan be summarily removed from the case for his dereliction of duty.

The filing insists that Sullivan recuse himself from “further participation” in the Flynn case, citing an “appearance of bias,” which the lawyers said is “terrifying and mandates disqualification.”

The filing added that Sullivan “cast an intolerable cloud of partiality over his subsequent judicial conduct” and “risked undermining the public’s confidence in the judicial process.”

“[A]ll that must be demonstrated to compel recusal,’ then, is ‘a showing of an appearance of bias …sufficient to permit the average citizen reasonably to question a judge’s impartiality,” the filing continued.


The circumstances of this case lead any reasonable observer to believe that the current judge has a personal interest in the outcome, is irreparably biased against general Flynn, and is actively litigating against him. His continued presence in the case has become a national scandal undermining confidence in the impartiality of the federal judicial system and faith in the rule of law writ large. The Constitution compels, and all statutory bases require (‘shall recuse’), that Judge Sullivan recuse himself from any further proceedings even if he has granted the motion to dismiss with prejudice.

Judge Sullivan satisfied that standard when he actively litigated against General Flynn. He has since far exceeded it — rising to the level of demonstrating actual bias.

Flynn’s legal team added, “the court’s contempt and disdain for the defense was palpable throughout the hearing on September 29, 2020, including when defense counsel made an oral motion for his immediate disqualification, which he refused to allow even to be fully stated for the record.”

“Judge Sullivan’s Immediate Disqualification is Mandatory,” the lawyers exclaimed.

“Judge Sullivan’s increasingly hostile and unprecedented words and deeds in what has become his own prosecution of General Flynn mandate his disqualification from further participation in these proceedings and the referral of his conduct to the D.C. Circuit Judicial Council,” the filing continued. “The appearance of bias here is terrifying and mandates disqualification,” the paper concluded.

The case has needlessly dragged on for months because Judge Sullivan has refused to declare an end to the case even though the Department of Justice formally pulled its charges against the former Trump adviser and closed its case against him.

Still, despite that there is no longer a legal case against Flynn, Sullivan has refused to close the case and continues to try Flynn over what even the federal government now says are false charges.

Michael Flynn’s Lawyer Blasts Judge’s Bias and Says She Told Trump NOT to Pardon Client

Lt. General Michael Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, slammed the biased judge in her client’s case.



Lt. General Michael Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, slammed the biased judge in her client’s case and affirmed that she told President Donald Trump not to pardon the general because she is going to prevail in court despite the bias aligned against her.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan attempted to grill Powell and intimated that he thinks she has been going through President Trump and U.S. Attorney General William Barr to get around his court.

“I can tell you I spoke one time to the president about this case to inform him about the general status of this litigation,” Powell replied.

The judge then asked if Powell urged Trump to assign new lawyers to the government’s case against the former national security adviser.

“Oh, heavens, no,” Powell exclaimed.

“I provided the White House with an update on the overall status of the litigation,” Powell added. “I never discussed this case with the president until recently, when I asked him not to issue a pardon.”

Sullivan once again ended the day’s hearings without making any decisions o whether or not he would close the case as the Department of Justice has repeatedly asked him to do.

Powell continued to pound the illicit case brought against her client.

“There was no case against General Flynn,” Powell and federal prosecutors wrote in the new joint motion filed just last week. “There was no crime. The FBI and the prosecutors knew that. This American hero and his entire family have suffered for four years from public abuse, slander, libel, and all means of defamation at the hands of the very government he pledged his life to defend.”

Powell also slammed the judge.

“It is an affront to the Rule of Law and a raging insult to the citizens of this country who see the abject corruption in this assassination by political prosecution of General Flynn,” Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell wrote, referring to the brief filed by court-appointed amicus John Gleeson. “This court exuviated any appearance of neutrality when it unlawfully appointed amicus as its own adversary to make these scurrilous arguments.”

WATCH (Or Read): Supreme Court Justice-To-Be Amy Coney Barrett’s Acceptance Speech

“I love the United States, and I love the United States Constitution.”



“I love the United States, and I love the United States Constitution.”

The Text of Amy Coney Barrett’s remarks, delivered on September 26, 2020:

Thank you very much, Mr. President. I am deeply honored by the confidence that you have placed in me, and I am so grateful to you and the first lady, to the vice president and the second lady, and to so many others here for your kindness on this rather overwhelming occasion.

I fully understand that this is a momentous decision for a president, and if the Senate does me the honor of confirming me, I pledge to discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability. I love the United States, and I love the United States’ Constitution. I am truly humbled by the prospect of serving on the Supreme Court. Should I be confirmed, I will be mindful of who came before me. The flag of the United States is still flying at half-staff in memory of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to mark the end of a great American life. Justice Ginsburg began her career at a time when women were not welcome in the legal profession—but she not only broke glass ceilings, she smashed them. For that, she has won the admiration of women across the country, and indeed, all over the world. She was a woman of enormous talent and consequence, and her life of public service serves as an example to us all.

Particularly poignant to me was her long and deep friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia, my own mentor. Justices Scalia and Ginsburg disagreed fiercely in print without rancor in person. Their ability to maintain a warm and rich friendship despite their differences even inspired an opera. These two great Americans demonstrated that arguments, even about matters of great consequence, need not destroy affection. In both my personal and professional relationships, I strive to meet that standard.

I was lucky enough to clerk for Justice Scalia, and given his incalculable influence on my life, I am very moved to have members of the Scalia family here today, including his dear wife Maureen. I clerked for Justice Scalia more than 20 year ago, but the lessons I learned still resonate. His judicial philosophy is mine, too. A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policymakers, and they must be resolute in setting aside any policy views they might hold. The president has asked me to become the 9th justice, and as it happens, I’m used to being in a group of nine, my family.

Our family includes me, my husband Jesse, Emma, Vivian, Tess, John Peter, Liam, Juliet, and Benjamin. Vivian and John Peter, as the president said, were born in Haiti and they came to us five years apart when they were very young. And the most revealing fact about Benjamin, our youngest, is that his brothers and sisters unreservedly identify him as their favorite sibling. Our children obviously make our life very full. While I am a judge, I’m better known back home as a room parent, carpool driver, and birthday party planner. When schools went remote last spring, I tried on another hat: Jesse and I became co-principals of the Barrett e-learning academy—and yes, the list of enrolled students was a very long one. Our children are my greatest joy even though they deprive me of any reasonable amount of sleep.

I couldn’t manage this very full life without the unwavering support of my husband, Jesse. At the start of our marriage, I imagined that we would run our household as partners. As it has turned out, Jesse does far more than his share of the work. To my chagrin, I learned at dinner recently that my children consider him to be the better cook. For 21 years, Jesse has asked me every single morning what he can do for me that day. And though I almost always say “nothing,” he still finds ways to take things off my plate—and that’s not because he has a lot of free time. He has a busy law practice. It’s because he is a superb and generous husband, and I am very fortunate. Jesse and I have a life full of relationships, not only with our children, but with siblings, friends, and fearless baby-sitters, one of whom is with us today. I am particularly grateful to my parents, Mike and Linda Coney.

I have spent bulk of my adulthood as a Midwesterner, but I grew up in their New Orleans home. And as brother and sisters can also attest, mom and dad’s generosity extends not only to us, but to more people than any of us could count. They are an inspiration.

It is important at a moment like this to acknowledge family and friends, but this evening I also want to acknowledge you, my fellow Americans. The president has nominated me to serve on the United States Supreme Court, and that institution belongs to all of us. If confirmed, I would not assume that role for the sake of those in my own circle, and certainly not for my own sake. I would assume this role to serve you. I would discharge the judicial oath, which requires me to administer justice without respect to persons, do equal right to the poor and rich, and faithfully and impartially discharge my duties under the United States Constitution.

I have no illusions that the road ahead of me will be easy, either for the short-term or the long haul. I never imagined that I would find myself in this position, but now that I am, I assure you that I will meet the challenge with both humility and courage. Members of the United States Senate, I look forward to working with you during the confirmation process, and I will do my very best to demonstrate that I am worthy of your support.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dead at 87 — Trump MUST Fill This Seat

With the death of left-wing U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Trump now has his best change to chance the Supreme Court for decades to come.



Only months before a presidential election, left-wing U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died of complications from cancer. This gives Trump his best chance to change the Supreme Court for decades to come.

Ginsburg was a hard-charging champion of far-left causes and put her activism into action to remake America through activist court decisions going back since her elevation to the court in 1993 when she was appointed by President Bill Clinton.

But it was only a few years into her tenure on the high court that her health began troubling her when cancer and other issues cropped up as early as 1999. She had several falls breaking bones, suffered five bouts with cancer, and went through surgery to insert a stent to clear a blocked artery, all after she turned 75.

Ginsburg, though, toughed out each health scare and continued to serve on the nation’s highest court delivering leftward decisions, one after another.

Still, her last bout with cancer was her last. In July she announced that she was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for lesions on her liver. Complications from that illness have now taken her from us all. Ginsburg died of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer on Friday at her home in Washington D.C.

Her death sets up a partisan firefight if President Trump decides to try and fill her position in the last months of his first term and, perhaps, even ahead of the Nov. 3 General Election.

Democrats will bray that it is unseemly that Trump try to fill the position before the nation has a chance to vote on his suitability for a second term. And they will for sure attack him if he continues to try and fill the position if he happens to lose the election to Joe Biden.

On the other hand, conservatives will rightly point out that they now have the power to fill another Supreme Court seat and they must strike now before they lose that power.

It’s also likely that Democrats and the Media will work to forestall any chance that Trump could fill the position — especially before Election Day which is only 45 days away.

One of the things that President Trump has done best for the conservative cause is to fill as many judicial seats as he can with conservative-minded judges. This is a MUST for the conservative cause. Waiting until Trump *maybe* loses the election is a bad deal for the conservative cause and the country.

Trump must forge ahead and fill this seat whether he wins on Nov. 3 or not.
