Boost to Redskins case: Supreme Court says
government can’t refuse disparaging trademarks
Washington Times, by Alex Swoyer    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/19/2017 4:25:03     Post Reply
The government cannot censor trademarks on the grounds they may be offensive to some, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a major decision that could also clear the way for the Washington Redskins football team to maintain its trademarks. The case before the high court involved an Asian rock band named “The Slants.” The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office originally denying the band’s name, saying it was a racial slur that violated the agency’s policy, based on federal law, that prohibits granting disparaging trademarks. Justices, though, said that violated the First Amendment. “Speech may not be banned on the ground

EPA Ends $1 Million Taxpayer-Funded
Gym Membership Program
Washington Free Beacon, by Elizabeth Harrington    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/19/2017 3:42:06     Post Reply
The Environmental Protection Agency has ended a nearly $1 million program that provided gym memberships for employees. The new administration under EPA administrator Scott Pruitt identified the gym memberships as an abuse of taxpayer dollars. Examples of the program´s misuse included $15,000 for gym memberships for 37 EPA scientists in Las Vegas last year. "We have ended taxpayer-funded fitness centers at EPA; a program that was costing American taxpayers $900,000 per year," said EPA spokesperson Jahan Wilcox. "Disinvestment in using federal funds for EPA fitness centers will allow the agency to invest this money in core activities to protect the

Senate Democrats plan to stall Obamacare repeal late Monday in a protest against the GOP’s ‘closed-door’ repeal and replace process. (Photo) Circa News reports: Senate Democrats will move to freeze the chamber late Monday to protest the GOP’s closed-door process to repeal and replace ObamaCare, a senior Democratic aide told CNN. Democrats reportedly plan on rejecting routine requests to let the Senate function, including scheduling votes and allowing committees to meet for extended hearings. House Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer said, “If Republicans won’t relent and debate their healthcare bill in the open for the American people to see, then they

SCOTUS Could End Political Gerrymandering,
Imperil GOP Majorities

The Supreme Court decided Monday to take up a landmark challenge to partisan gerrymanders, raising the prospects of a significant rearrangement of legislative political power at the state and federal level. “Gerrymandering” refers to the practice of drawing legislative district lines to favor incumbents, political parties or interest groups. Although the justices have frequently invalidated district maps that disadvantage minorities, they have stopped short of striking down maps favoring one political party over the other. A ruling that partisan gerrymanders are unlawful would dramatically recast the apportionment process and shuffle the balance of power in Congress and state legislatures. “This

In every single week of the Trump presidency, the investigators and attorneys of FBI Director James Comey or, subsequently, of special counsel Robert Mueller, have leaked information that President Donald Trump was under investigation for either colluding with the Russians or obstructing justice—allegations so far without any substantiating evidence. In the case of Comey, we now know that his office or sympathetic third-parties leaked to the press false stories that Trump was under FBI investigation at precisely the time that the careerist Comey was privately reassuring the president himself that he was in fact not being investigated. The appointment of

Alan Dershowitz, professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, argued Monday that Trump should not face any criminal penalty just because he fired former FBI Director James Comey. "The president of the United States should not be subject to criminal prosecution for merely exercising his constitutional authority," he said on CNN. "In the absence of any statute to the contrary, the president has the authority to fire the director of the FBI, and the president has the power tell the director of the FBI who to investigate, who not to investigate," he added.

Shakespeare Would Defend Trump

If Shakespeare were alive today, he would instantly recognize the New York Times and its treasonous ilk, because Shakespeare feared nothing more than treason and civil war -- which is exactly what happened to the Roman Empire after the plotters stabbed Julius Caesar to death in the Forum. In our Civil War, a war fought about the Constitution and freedom, 600,000 people died; it was far and away our worst war, and today´s demagogues are still trying to twist the reality of that war to sucker all the airheads of the left. In American history it was the Democrats, of

NEW YORK— Senate Republicans are eying the possibility of seeking testimony from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch over possible wrongdoing with regard to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. On Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, formally requesting that the committee probe any attempts to influence the FBI’s investigations under the Trump and Obama administrations. It is not immediately clear whether the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the Justice Department, has taken any action on the matter. A spokesman for Grassley, the

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones hemmed and hawed when pressed repeatedly by Megyn Kelly to admit he was wrong to call the Sandy Hook massacre a hoax. But the controversial Infowars host never gave a direct answer in a segment on Sunday night on NBC´s Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly. Kelly had been plagued with intense criticism for giving a platform to Jones - with critics labeling the decision to air the interview on Father´s Day as ´disgusting´ and ´shameful´. Yet following the show, many on Twitter applauded the NBC host for the interview that Jones had earlier tried to discredit

ERIN, Wisconsin — Just when it appeared the size of the moment might be getting to Brooks Koepka, he pulled out a 3-wood, gripped it, and ripped it. His ball sailed toward the green at the par-5 14th, and though it landed just short in the greenside bunker, it showed that Koepka wasn’t just trying to hang on to win the 117th U.S. Open. He was going to grab this tournament by the throat. Koepka pitched out, drained the birdie, then carded another right afterward at the 15th, and the victory march was on. In a matter of about 10

Watergate prosecutors had evidence that operatives for then-President Richard Nixon planned an assault on anti-war demonstrators in 1972, including potentially physically attacking Vietnam whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, according to a never-before-published memo obtained by NBC News. The document, an 18-page 1973 investigative memorandum from the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, sheds new light on how prosecutors were investigating attempts at domestic political violence by Nixon aides, an extremely serious charge. NBC News is publishing the memo, and an accompanying memo about an interview prosecutors conducted with GOP operative Roger Stone, as part of special coverage for the 45th anniversary of the Watergate

Several Democrats in Congress warned President Trump on Friday that he will face consequences if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. “All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) told MSNBC Friday. “And if President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, and then [get] special counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings.” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) echoed Lieu’s sentiments, saying that Congress would come together to make sure they

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has a warning for President Trump: "Donald, you ain´t seen nasty yet." Warren read aloud from her new book "This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America´s Middle Class" and took questions at a town hall event in New York Friday, HuffPost reported. Warren blasted Trump for his economic policies, saying they are hurting the middle-class Americans who voted for him. "What Donald Trump and the Republican majority in the House and the Senate want to do to us, is they want to deliver the knockout blow to the middle class," she said. She

Local leaders in and around Madison, Wisconsin are seeking to rename the main county government building after former President Barack Obama — “the JFK of our generation.” The seven-story building is currently called the City-County Building. It’s a gray, soul-crushing, Brutalist slab of concrete. Inside the dreary, Soviet apartment-style exterior walls — originally erected in 1956 — are administrative offices and a jail. “Barack Obama was the JFK of our generation,” County Executive Joe Parisi said on Thursday, according to The Capital Times, a Madison newspaper. “He deserves to be honored, and he deserves to be recognized, not only for his accomplishments, but

Under no circumstances should a US Navy vessel possibly be damaged by a container ship at sea. Multiple systems exist to prevent this. Even CNN is noticing how little we know about the catastrophe that took the lives of seven sailors and almost caused a powerful warship to founder. The USS Fitzgerald, an anti-ballistic missile destroyer that was part of the USS Ronald Reagan carrier strike group, will no longer be ready to defend the carrier and other ships from missile attacks launched from North Korea, should push come to shove in the current confrontation with the rogue regime on the

Following the acquittal of a police officer charged in the death of Philando Castile in Minnesota, there’s definitely been a renewed conversation in America about police brutality and the justice system. After nearly a week of deliberations, the jury found Jeronimo Yanez not guilty of all counts in the July 2016 shooting of Castile. The shooting took place in a suburb of St. Paul and was caught on video. Yanez’s acquittal was met with strong condemnation from protesters around the United States.

Los Angeles - The nation´s oldest U.S. senator looks like she´s sticking around. California´s Dianne Feinstein turns 84 on Thursday and is displaying signs that she´s headed for a re-election campaign, not a retirement party. While the Democrat has been coy when asked about seeking a fifth full term next year, her political committee, unambiguously titled Feinstein for Senate 2018, raised more than $650,000 in the first three months of this year in a cue she is looking ahead. Feinstein plays a marquee role for Democrats on Capitol Hill, where she has queried Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former FBI Director James Comey

Gerry Martin isn’t sure he will ever tell a police officer during a traffic stop that he has a concealed-weapon permit — and possibly a weapon — on him. The acquittal of a Minnesota officer in the death of a licensed gun owner who volunteered that he had a gun seconds before being fatally shot during a traffic stop adds to the worries of African-American gun owners about how they are treated by police and society. Acknowledging that they have a weapon, they said, can open them up to violence from police, who can then claim they feared

California state lawmakers approved $45 million in a state budget plan to expand legal services for immigrants, a response to the Trump administration´s call to increase deportations. The funds, greater than what Gov. Jerry Brown earmarked in May and which will be an ongoing allocation through 2020, will go to a coalition of legal services agencies, immigrant rights groups and faith-based organizations called One California. (Snip) Improving legal defense for immigrants has been a significant part of a legislative package proposed by Democrats, in an attempt to assist more than 2 million people living in the state illegally. Among the proposals was a bill by Sen. Ben Hueso (D-San Diego) to create

This was not how it was supposed to be. The most hated man in American media has dealt a serious and potentially knockout blow to the career of the woman who thought she was all set to take him on and proceed unimpeded on the fast track to maybe becoming the next Oprah.

POLICE have reported there are a "number of casualties" after a vehicle drove through pedestrians near Finsbury Park Mosque in London. Officers were called to the scene on Seven Sisters Road just after 12.20am BST. Witnesses said the vehicle veered off the road into crowds outside Finsbury Park Mosque but it was unclear whether the collision was deliberate. Multiple witnesses claim a man jumped out the knife, and there are reports that at least one victim was stabbed. Bystanders reportedly wrestled the alleged perpetrator to the ground as officers arrived on the scene just moments later. Police have confirmed the incident occurred as
