New Issues Few Answers

As the can of worms opens wider, Americans should demand answers after accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein died in an apparent suicide inside his prison cell. Some are asking if Epstein's suicide feels like something concocted by Communist Russia?

The final determination was suicide but what about our federal prison system which has lost 12 percent of its workforce since the beginning of the Trump administration? Understaffing is such a chronic problem that prison officials now resort to untrained staffers pulling guard duty.

Springtime For POTUS

President ‪Trump may be taking a victory lap and his base claiming vindication but his real legal perils are far away from being over. How did POTUS go from calling it a witchhunt to a very thorough and fair investigation and from attacking the special counsel to promoting his initial findings? Trump's legal team says Mueller was "professional" in carrying out his Russia investigation and honorable "because it was a great conclusion"

Detention Without Representation

Who is really well represented in immigration court? The odds of obtaining representation for newly arrived immigrants appearing in federal court has varied over the years. However, their rights appear to be slipping in recent years.

Also, immigrants in detention centers are often hundreds of miles away from legal assistance. Only a tiny percentage of detained immigrants have lawyers, leaving them to stay in the #USA and fend for themselves.

Blind Justice For Some

Paul John Manafort Jr. is an American lobbyist, political consultant, and convicted felon. The Republican joined Donald Trump's presidential campaign team in March 2016 and was promoted to campaign chairman from June to August 2016.

Paul Manafort’s slap on the wrist is a good example of American injustice in action While in school I may have spent more time in detention and inside the principals' office than he will now serve in his prison sentence.

UNITY Seriously?

Submitted by ub on Tue, 02/05/2019 - 06:19

POTUS is expected to call for unity in his attempt at reset after two years of partisanship deep divide and personal attacks. #SOTU will come with a large serving of partisan divide which could lead to another government shutdown or to an emergency declaration over the #Mexico border, but what about the #Canada northern border? Politically wounded from his federal shutdown, #Trump may face an uphill battle with his agenda.

Will Americans, or the rest of the world buy this White House attempt at turning a new leaf? We’ll have to wait and see, Mr. T.

Individual 1

Does he realize he is finally top of the heap and the real number 1? The news comes with pre-presidential actions and entanglements by Trump himself. Investigators have now publicly cast Trump as a central figure of their probe into whether Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign.

Disclosures show that Trump was in close contact with his lieutenants as they made outreach to both Russia and WikiLeaks and that they tried to conceal the extent of their activities.

US Against The World

Nearly 200 years ago, in 1823, President James Monroe's doctrine prevented imperial powers foreign to our Western Hemisphere from acquiring territories anywhere in The Americas or seeking undue influence. This was the cornerstone of #USA grand strategy.

American foreign influence once referred to how we behaved towards other nations. Now we're told there are countries turning the tables on us and global leaders like Russia and now China dares interfere in our internal affairs.

War on Truth and Justice

Submitted by ub on Wed, 09/12/2018 - 10:22

There is a war on truth and justice, where some members in our government may have become complicit. The most recent battle has POTUS Trump and his administration opening up a new front in the war on the rule of law. First, judges were attacked, then FBI, then DOJ and now the World Court? What’s going on here folks?

I remember as a child hearing the phrase Truth and Justice and the American way. What has happened since then? PBS Superheroes
