Demonic Looking Statue Placed On NYC Courthouse

Published

on

A new demonic-looking statue has been placed on top of a Manhattan Courthouse.

The golden statue, named “NOW” ,stands at about 8ft and depicts a woman with horns wearing a lace collar.

It was resurrected on top of the First Judicial Department of the State Supreme Court in an attempt to honor the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The artist behind the statue is Pakistani American Shahzia Sikander.

Sikander told The New York Times she called the statue NOW “because it was needed ‘now,’ at a time when women’s reproductive rights were under siege after the U.S. Supreme Court in June overturned the constitutional right to abortion.”

Although the Times wrote an extensive piece praising the new statue, users on Twitter have different feeling about the new statue.

Top Iowa Republicans Freeze Trump Out And Don’t Return His Calls

Published

on

Top Iowa Republicans from the governor on down aren’t returning Donald Trump’s phone calls and are not committing to support him in 2024.

Bloomberg reported:

The former president, itching to seal up support early in what remains a key state in the Republican presidential contest, has checked in with Iowa influencers who have stood by him in the past.

Senators Chuck Grassley and Governor Kim Reynolds didn’t answer when he telephoned recently, and neither of them are willing to give their party’s former leader their nod this early, according to people familiar with the matter. Nor are Joni Ernst or other top state elected officials.

Republicans are not so subtlety freezing Donald Trump out. It isn’t 2016 anymore or even 2020. Trump expected the Republican Party to line up behind him, but instead, they are pretending like they are too busy to take his calls.

Trump’s strength is with the rank and file of the Republican Party. Unlike Democrats, the Republican Party has been driven by a fear of the base. Democrats tend to try to appeal to their base and move with them. Republicans live in terror of the base turning on them and tossing them out of office.

If the Republican leadership decides to rally around someone else, but the base stays with Trump, the odds are that weak elected Republicans will rally around the former president, but so far Republicans in Iowa are seeing Trump’s number and refusing to pick up.

5 Ex-Memphis Police Officers Charged with Murder in Death of Black Motorist, Tyre Nichols

Published

on

Five ex-Memphis police officers were charged with second-degree murder and kidnapping on Thursday in the death of a black motorist.

The officers, Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr. and Justin Smith – were fired on Friday after the motorist, Tyre Nichols, died following a violent confrontation during a January 7 traffic stop.

Video of the police officers beating Tyre Nichols will be released on Friday at 6 pm local time, the DA said.

“The actions of all of them resulted in the death of Tyre Nichols and they are all responsible,” Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy told reporters.

NBC News reported:

Five former Memphis police officers were indicted Thursday on murder charges in the death of Tyre Nichols, whose beating following a traffic stop was captured on video that “sickened” a top Tennessee law enforcement official.

The officers — Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr. and Justin Smith — were fired after police Chief C.J. Davis said they violated department policies during the Jan. 7 stop that led to Nichols’ death.

All five former officers were charged with second-degree murder, two counts of official misconduct, two counts of aggravated kidnapping, one count of official oppression and one count of aggravated assault, prosecutors announced.

Haley and Martin were being held in lieu of a $350,000 bond, while Bean, Mills and Smith will need to post $250,000 to leave custody, jail records showed.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation led the probe and agency director David Rausch said the video will be clear cut.

Trump 2020 Attorney John Eastman Faces Disbarment in California

Published

on

California State bar regulators filed disciplinary actions against conservative lawyer John Eastman due to his efforts in trying to overturn the 2020 election for Donald Trump. The state seeks to disbar Eastman, who once clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas.

“The Office of Chief Trial Counsel (OCTC) intends to seek Eastman’s disbarment before the State Bar Court,” the state bar of California wrote in a news release about the filing.

The filing contains 11 charges arising from allegations that “Eastman engaged in a course of conduct to plan, promote, and assist then-President Trump in executing a strategy, unsupported by facts or law, to overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 presidential election by obstructing the count of electoral votes of certain states.”

They specifically cited Eastman’s “false and misleading statements regarding purported election fraud, including statements on January 6, 2020, at a rally in Washington, D.C., that contributed to provoking a crowd to assault and breach the Capitol to intimidate then-Vice President Pence and prevent the electoral count from proceeding.”

They add, “Eastman now faces multiple charges that he violated Business and Professions Code section 6106 by making false and misleading statements that constitute acts of ‘moral turpitude, dishonesty, and corruption.’”

“There is nothing more sacrosanct to our American democracy than free and fair elections and the peaceful transfer of power,” the State Bar of California’s Chief Trial Counsel George Cardona said. “For California attorneys, adherence to the U.S. and California Constitutions is their highest legal duty. The Notice of Disciplinary Charges alleges that Mr. Eastman violated this duty in furtherance of an attempt to usurp the will of the American people and overturn election results for the highest office in the land—an egregious and unprecedented attack on our democracy—for which he must be held accountable.”

Eastman, who crafted two infamous “coup memos” in an attempt to circumvent the peaceful transition of power to 2020 winner now President Joe Biden, is the director of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence at the conservative Claremont Institute, where he is a member of the Board of Directors and a senior fellow.

Eastman has not been charged with any crime. This was a notice of charges filed, which are only allegations at this point.

Eastman was also referred to the DOJ for potential criminal charges by the House January 6th Committee on two counts. One is based on alleged obstruction of an official proceeding and the second is conspiracy to defraud the United States.
