Alex Jones almost got Stone thrown in jail pending sentencing

Trump confidant Roger Stone was convicted of seven felony counts, including charges that he lied to Congress and tampered with a witness, in federal court on November 15. Following his conviction, prosecutors argued that he should be immediately remanded into custody because he violated a gag order he is under by passing a public announcement through far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones the previous day. Stone, however, was released by the judge on certain conditions, including an ongoing gag order, as he awaits his February sentencing.

During his November 15 broadcast of The Alex Jones Show, Jones read a text message from one of Stone’s attorneys that purportedly said, “Your reporting almost got Roger taken into custody immediately upon the verdicts. The government cited you and argued for immediate imprisonment. Please be cautious about your comments concerning private communications.”

MAINSTREAM MEDIA DECLARES BIDEN FREE OF GUILT

No.495457 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Sensible mouthpiece of the MSM, The Hill, has made it official:
>No evidence suggests that Biden was acting with his son’s interests in mind.
No investigation necessary and anyone who disagrees legally meets the bar for crazy conspiracy theorist, hate criminal and likely terrorist so they will get their gunz took

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, warned Republicans that the panel’s impeachment probe would not be used to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden or unfounded claims that Ukraine was involved in election meddling in 2016.

“This inquiry is not, and will not serve ... as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigations into the Bidens or 2016 that the President pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit, or to facilitate the President’s effort to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm,” Schiff said in a statement.

The remarks came after House Republicans unveiled a list of witnesses they plan to call before the Intelligence Committee for the impeachment probe. Included in the list are Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son; the anonymous whistleblower who first raised concerns about President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine; and Nellie Ohr, a former Fusion GPS employee who is a top Republican target over their claims she helped produce the Steele dossier.

“The Committee is evaluating the Minority’s witness requests and will give due consideration to witnesses within the scope of the impeachment inquiry, as voted on by the House,” said Schiff.

Canadian water has more lead in it than in Flint, Michigan

No.491140 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

undreds of thousands of Canadians have been unwittingly exposed to high levels of lead in their drinking water, with contamination in several cities consistently higher than they ever were in Flint, Michigan, according to an investigation that tested drinking water in hundreds of homes and reviewed thousands more previously undisclosed results.

Residents in some homes in Montreal, a cosmopolitan city an hour north of the U.S.-Canada border, and Regina, in the flat western prairies, are among those drinking and cooking with tap water with lead levels that exceed Canada’s federal guidelines. The investigation found some schools and daycares had lead levels so high that researchers noted it could impact children’s health. Exacerbating the problem, many water providers aren’t testing at all.

It wasn’t the Canadian government that exposed the scope of this public health concern.

A yearlong investigation by more than 120 journalists from nine universities and 10 media organizations, including The Associated Press and the Institute for Investigative Journalism at Concordia University in Montreal, collected test results that properly measure exposure to lead in 11 cities across Canada. Out of 12,000 tests since 2014, one-third — 33% — exceeded the national safety guideline of 5 parts per billion; 18% exceeded the U.S. limit of 15 ppb.

In a country that touts its clean, natural turquoise lakes, sparkling springs and rushing rivers, there are no national mandates to test drinking water for lead. And even if agencies do take a sample, residents are rarely informed of contamination.

“I’m surprised,” said Bruce Lanphear, a leading Canadian water safety researcher who studies the impacts of lead exposure on fetuses and young children.

3 Indiana Judges Suspended After White Castle Brawl

https://www.npr.org/2019/11/14/779339897/3-indiana-judges-suspended-after-white-castle-brawl-that-left-2-of-them-wounded

Back in May, three Indiana judges got into a fight. It was the crescendo of an incident brimming with colorful details: a gaggle of judges drinking the night before a judicial conference, a failed attempt to visit a strip club called the Red Garter, a brawl in the parking lot of an Indianapolis White Castle.

The altercation apparently started sometime after 3 a.m., when one of the judges, Sabrina Bell, raised a middle finger at two men yelling from a passing SUV, and ended after one of those men shot two of the judges.

In between, the three judges took a number of actions that "discredited the entire Indiana judiciary," according to an opinion posted by the Indiana Supreme Court this week, suspending the judges.

The court found that the three — Andrew Adams, Bradley Jacobs and Sabrina Bell — had "engaged in judicial misconduct by appearing in public in an intoxicated state and behaving in an injudicious manner and by becoming involved in a verbal altercation." Adams and Jacobs engaged in further judicial misconduct "by becoming involved in a physical altercation for which Judge Adams was criminally charged and convicted."

Japanese Internment Camps Caused Shooting So Pay Reparations

No.499683 ViewReplyOriginalReport
An image emerged on Thursday night of the teenager who chose his own birthday to open fire inside a Santa Clarita high school, authorities said.

The 16-year-old — identified by CBS as Nathaniel Berhow — allegedly stormed into Saugus High School just before classes began Thursday and killed two students and injured at least three others with a .45 caliber semi automatic pistol before turning the gun on himself, police said.

Berhow survived the self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head and is currently in “grave condition,” which means he is critical and clinging to life, at an area hospital, cops said.

He is a half-Japanese student whose family lives in Valencia, California, about two miles from the school.
