High School Gets Sued After Students Dishonor War Vets

The students filed the lawsuit against Edina High School, the principal and the school district. The lawsuit — “Edina High School Young Conservative Club et al v. Edina School District et al” — charges the school with violating students’ rights to freedom of speech, association and equal access. The suit alleges the school is trying to put a flag code above the First Amendment.

“The U.S. Flag Code preempts Edina High School’s requirement that students respect flag protesters—whatever that means,” YCC lawyer Erick Kaardal said in a press release. “This is a clear case of discrimination against students with conservative beliefs by a school whose policies have been documented as promoting an extreme ideological agenda.”

“Edina High School has essentially declared itself to be ‘big brother’ – to ensure that students ‘think correctly’ about the U.S. flag, political and social issues,” Kaardal added.

YCC members describes themselves on Facebook as “a group of teenagers that discuss their political views with each other.”

A masked student also threatened members of the club for their “alt-right agenda,” in a creepy Nov. 12 video, according to Edina Schools Superintendent John Schultz.

“This is why we at EHS Anti-fascists have decided your club cannot continue to exist in its current form,”  the masked student said on camera. “We will not stop until every tentacle of your evil monstrosity is sliced off at the nerve.”

Several club members left campus out of fear for their safety after the threatening video was published. The school administration shut the club down, however, because the group “criticized the school’s policies supporting the organized student protest.”

“The bottom line with this particular instance is that students are not required to stand for the national anthem, or ‘Taps’ or the pledge,” Edina High School Principal Andy Beaton said in a statement. The school steps in when statements become disrespectful, Beaton added.

“School policy allows students to disrespect military veterans and the United States flag, but will not tolerate those students who criticize the disrespectful behavior of the student protesters,” YCC’s attorney Kaardal said. “That’s a double standard.”

Neither YCC nor Edina High School responded to the DCNF’s request for comment in time for publication.

Wow.

This mayor used a dead person’s identity to get a better parking space. Now she may lose her job.

For Darlene Bradley, mayor of Davenport, Florida, the answer to that question is criminal identity theft.

Bradley parked in the handicapped parking spot at city hall all the time. The city manager, Kelly Callihan, noticed it, but since Bradley had a placard, it didn’t register as an issue.

Clearly, someone had a problem with it, and whoever that was dropped a tip with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office to look into her parking situation.

After discovering Bradley had never been issued a parking permit, authorities set up a covert surveillance camera outside city hall.

They observed her exiting her vehicle and carrying a suitcase into city hall without any assistance.

More importantly, they were able to zoom in on her placard, to reveal that it belonged to a woman who had died in 2012.

On top of that, the real permit expired in 2013, which indicates that the mayor’s, which had a 2018 expiration date, was likely a forgery.

Police got a warrant and searched her home, and found another placard, from another deceased person.

Bradley was arrested and charged with identity theft, counterfeiting, and illegal parking in a handicapped spot.

County Sheriff Grady Judd said Bradley “embarrassed the citizens of Davenport.”

Bradley could be facing a suspension during her trial, and will have to step down if she is convicted.

Good grief, when will the embarrassment end? Hopefully tomorrow…..

8th Accuser: Al Franken Groped Me ’at a Media Matters Party During the First Obama Inauguration’

Mark Wilson/Getty Images

Journalist Tina Dupuy became the eighth woman on Wednesday to accuse Al Franken of sexual misconduct, writing in The Atlantic that the embattled Minnesota Senator groped her in 2009 at a Media Matters party during Barack Obama’s inauguration.

“D.C. was decked out and packed in for the inauguration of a young and popular new president. The town was buzzing with optimism, and one of the many events on our list was a swanky Media Matters party with Democratic notables everywhere,” the former communications director for Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson wrote in the article titled, “I Believe Franken’s Accusers Because He Groped Me, Too.”

“Then I saw Al Franken,” Dupuy wrote. “I only bug celebrities for pictures when it’ll make my foster mom happy. She loves Franken, so I asked to get a picture with him. We posed for the shot. He immediately put his hand on my waist, grabbing a handful of flesh. I froze. Then he squeezed. At least twice.”

“Al Franken’s familiarity was inappropriate and unwanted. It was also quick; he knew exactly what he was doing,” wrote Dupuy, who said, “I don’t let my husband touch me like that in public because I believe it diminishes me as a professional woman.”

In addition to Dupuy, six other women have accused Franken of sexual misconduct after radio host Leeann Tweeden published a photo last month of Franken grabbing her breast during a two week USO Tour in 2006.

Democratic senators have come out in droves urging Franken resign, including several high-ranking female lawmakers.

“We have to rise to the occasion, and not shrink away from it, even when it’s hard, especially when it’s hard. That is what this larger moment is about,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand wrote on Wednesday in a statement on Facebook.

Franken took to Twitter Wednesday promising to address the growing scandal in a statement on Thursday.

Minneapolis seeks assistance from National Guard for Super Bowl

Minnesota will soon be hosting the championship game of the National Football League. And Minnesota wants help from its National Guard.

Via Libor Jany of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Governor Mark Dayton has been asked to mobilize the National Guard to assist with security in connection with the Super Bowl. In a letter to Dayton, Mayor Betsy Hodges and Mayor-elect Jacob Frey wrote that Minneapolis police “cannot by themselves meet of all the safety and security needs of the 10 days of Super Bowl LII while maintaining public-safety operations for the entire city.”

The National Guard members would handle matters such as “pedestrian safety, traffic control, security for key venues and infrastructure, and transport,” allowing police officers to focus on other tasks.

Per the report, Minneapolis officials characterized the request as routine. If that’s the case, shouldn’t the request have been baked in to the proposals and other plans prepared months ago? It seems that it’s all happening now, only weeks before the event.

And this makes seven accusations.

Accuser: Franken said it was his ‘right’ to kiss me

A former Democratic congressional aide claims Sen. Al Franken attempted to forcibly kiss her, according to a new report.

The unidentified accuser told Politico that the Minnesota Democrat made the unwanted move after a taping of his talk radio show in 2006 – three years before he was elected to the Senate.

“He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me. It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked,” the woman told the news outlet.

“I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer,’” the ex-aide claimed

The woman, who was in her 20s at the time of the alleged incident and had never met Franken before, said the former “Saturday Night Live” star came onto her after her boss had left the studio.

Franken denied the accusation in a statement to Politico saying: “This allegation is categorically not true and the idea that I would claim this as my right as an entertainer is preposterous.”

Two ex-colleagues of the woman both independently corroborated her story to Politico, the site reports.

The Senate Ethics Committee is already investigating Franken over multiple allegations of sexual misconduct — including claims he groped both a soldier and a former Playboy model on a USO tour. Several other women have also accused the former funnyman of touching them inappropriately during campaign events.

Legalized robbery? This is not the intended use of asset forfeiture and maybe its time it is outlawed for abusive agencies.

Wyoming Lawmakers Line Up Against Police Waiver Used To Take $92,000 At Traffic Stop

When Wyoming police took Phil Parhamovich’s life savings at a single traffic stop, he had to wait months for the state to return it. Now, Wyoming lawmakers are looking to ban the waiver used to take it in the first place.

Known as a “release of interest in property or currency” form, the waivers allow citizens to transfer ownership of property to the state. Once signed, a citizen forfeits his right to contest the transfer later. When Parhamovich signed one of these forms at an unfortunate traffic stop in March, he gave $91,800 cash to police, but only after an officer supposedly implied that carrying such a large amount of cash was illegal. While a judge ordered the state to return the money Friday, the waivers have already drawn the gaze of state lawmakers.

Attorney Dan Alban, who represented Parhamovich, has fought civil forfeiture abuses across the country with the Institute for Justice. He claims the waivers are a way for police to circumvent cumbersome limitations on civil asset forfeiture, the widely derided power for law enforcement to seize property without convicting–or even charging–the owner with a crime.

Five state congressmen attended Parhomovich’s hearing, according to Alban. One was Rep. Charles Pelkey, the Democratic Whip and the only Wyoming congressman to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primaries; another was Sen. Anthony Bouchard, a Republican and staunch defender of the Second Amendment.

“I have at least 15 other lawmakers who are willing to co-sponsor a bill banning them,” Pelkey told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “And if I drop the ball on this, I guarantee someone else will pick it up.”

While Bouchard has vowed to support a move from Pelkey, he argues the ban should only be the start.

“Someone is going to bring in the bill to ban the waivers, but they’re just a symptom of a larger issue in the state,” he told TheDCNF. “Our government is just not transparent in Wyoming. The Attorney General’s office isn’t looking out for the people.”

In 2015, Wyoming’s Republican-controlled legislature passed a bill requiring law enforcement to obtain a felony conviction before they could take a citizen’s property, but Republican Gov. Matt Mead later vetoed the bill. Bouchard claims Mead then went to great lengths to ensure his veto wasn’t overturned.

The governor did sign a weaker form of the legislation in 2016, but Bouchard argues that Mead’s AG, Peter Michael, is still putting the state’s interests over the people’s with regard to forfeiture.

Wyoming is currently one of five states that allow the governor to appoint the AG. But next session, Bouchard wants to tie the position to direct elections, joining the vast majority of the country.

“I have room for three bills next session and that’s one of my slots,” Bouchard said. “I’m going to introduce this legislation.

Unreal: Franken Now Caught Saying He Fakes Apologies to Save Himself

Al Franken Admits Past Apology Was a Fraud
Print

In the forward of his book, “Al Franken, Giant of the Senate,” published in May, Sen. Al Franken told readers that he would explain to them how Washington really worked.

Apparently, the book also sheds a little light on his character as well — and it is about as disgusting as it gets.

A review of the book by The New York Times cast the senator as a “giant phony” who pretended to be serious in public “while his inner comic monologue never stopped running.” The article pointed out that during his 2008 campaign, he was asked about a joke he made in 1995 about raping and drugging CBS reporter Lesley Stahl.

“To say I was sorry for writing a joke was to sell out my career, to sell out who I’d been my entire life,” Franken wrote in the book, as reported by The Times.

“And I wasn’t sorry that I had written Porn-o-Rama or pitched that stupid Lesley Stahl joke at 2 in the morning. I was just doing my job,” he wrote.

But that was written long after he won the Senate seat.

He was performing a community service.

VIDEO: Child Rapist Attacked In Court By Another Prisoner

Prosecutors said that the other prisoner may have been set off by Elwood’s case, and that they did not know each other.

Dover, NH – A convicted sex offender was attacked by another prisoner just moments after being sentenced in a Dover courtroom on Thursday, Nov. 30.

Christopher Elwell, 29, had just been convicted and sentenced by a jury for sexually assaulting a four-year-old, according to KTLA.

After being sentenced, Elwell went to sit in the back of the courtroom when he was attacked by another prisoner, Josiah Davies, who head-butted him several times.

Davies was in court for a probation violation hearing at the time, and was in shackles.

Elwell and Davies did not know each other, and a Strafford County District Attorney’s Office official said that Davies may have been set off by Elwell’s case.

The four-year-old victim was sexually assaulted during a sleepover at a residence on June 24-25, and Elwell’s nine-year-old daughter witnessed the assault, according to court records. Police said that Elwell had been prohibited from being on the property.

When the victim’s mother picked her up the following morning, she told her mother that Elwell put his “peep” in her mouth, according to WNNH. Police said that the mother told them that peep is a word that she and her daughter use to describe private parts.

An affidavit said that the other girls gave a similar story of Chris [Elwell] sleeping in the bed with them, and “all of them being under the covers.” The four-year-old said that there were “nakey” photos on Elwell’s phone and that “they were tickling each other,” according to WNNH.

Elwell’s nine-year-old daughter disclosed that he had put his tongue in the victim, and also said that “daddy put his thing” in the victim’s mouth.

Assistant Strafford County Attorney Emily Conant said “They described him showing them videos of sexual acts similar to the ones that she had done.”

Elwell initially denied the allegations but admitted that they were true in court. In an affidavit, he said that he knew he was not supposed to be there, and blamed the four-year-old, saying that she had asked to see his “pee-pod” and wanted to try what was in the video.

He also pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender, after being convicted of two counts of felony sexual assault on a teen younger than 16 in 2008. His previous criminal history also includes convictions for theft, criminal mischief, and failure to register.

Conant said that Elwell was required to register as a sex offender and had been living at 12 Mineral Park Drive “off and on” but more than five times a month, and had not changed his address with the Somersworth Police Department.

Elwell was sentenced to seven and a half to 15 years in prison.

A judge accepted the plea bargain because it would prevent the child from having to testify. Conant said that she would have liked him to serve more time for the sexual assault. Once he is released from prison, Elwell is prohibited from having any unsupervised contact with juveniles, according to WMUR.

The Strafford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating Davies’ assault on Elwell, but it’s not clear if any jury would convict him of the assault.

Lies and deception are a lifestyle in Government.

What I can’t quite figure out about this whole thing is the hypocrisy.  Courts have decided many times that the police can lie and deceive suspects in criminal cases concerning the evidence they have,  Politicians lie daily, what makes the FBI so special?  Even if Flynn did lie, obviously thats all the Feds have on him or he’d be charged already, wouldn’t he?  I think most LEO’s expect suspects will lie to them to try to save their skin so again, what makes the FBI so special that one can be charged for lying to them?

What If Michael Flynn Did Not Actually Lie to the FBI?

Political commentators have been at a loss to explain why former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who surely knew that he might have been under surveillance, would have lied to the FBI about the contents of his conversations with the Russian ambassador last December.

Left-wing pundits have presumed that Flynn must have lied to the FBI because he wanted to cover up the “Russian collusion,” for which no evidence has yet been found.

But it is possible Flynn did not actually lie.

In fact, we know — as the Wall Street Journal noted on Saturday — that former FBI Director James Comey told the House Intelligence Committee on March 2 that Flynn had not lied to the FBI, but had merely forgotten what had been said in his conversations. It is not hard to imagine that might have happened; he was on vacation in the Dominican Republic when one of the conversations allegedly took place.

When he resigned on February 14, after being accused of lying to Vice President Mike Pence about the contents of the conversations, Flynn said that he “inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information.” The FBI seemed to have believed him, at the time. It is possible that new evidence emerged to suggest that Flynn had deliberately and knowingly lied. But it is also possible Flynn made a good faith mistake.

If so, why plead guilty to lying? Defendants often accept plea bargains in which they admit to doing something they did not actually do, in order to avoid prosecution for something much worse that they may have done or which will be much more difficult to disprove.

Flynn may have been in trouble for a variety of things, including his possible role in an alleged plot to kidnap Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen.

The truth may only become clear over time — if ever.

Officer Uses Tube Of K-Y Jelly To Bid Farewell To Man Who Shot Him

edited

A police officer brought a tube of K-Y Jelly to the sentencing of the man who shot him.

Jacksonville, FL – A Jacksonville police officer who was shot multiple times during an impromptu traffic stop, in front of his young son, faced his would-be killer with a tube of K-Y Jelly at his sentencing Nov. 29.

During the sentencing of Kevin Rojas, 21, the police officer he’d shot and nearly killed waved a tube of the personal lubricant in the air, and told his assailant “You are going to need a lot of this,” The Florida Times-Union reported.

The police officer’s identity was not revealed because he works undercover.

In March of 2016, Rojas had a fight will his girlfriend and threatened to kill himself. She said he shot some bullets in the air, and then he took off in the car with the gun.

The police officer saw Rojas driving erratically and stopped him. Before the officer could get out of the car and approach him, Rojas began shooting at the officer through the windshield of his police car.

The officer was off duty, and had been driving his young son to school when he made the traffic stop. He was hit multiple times, including the face. His son was not injured.

Rojas ran away as the officer fired back. He stole a truck, went home, and barricaded himself in the house, causing a standoff with Jacksonville law enforcement.

When police saw Rojas pointing a weapon at them through a sliding glass door, they shot him in the torso, leg, and hand, and arrested him.

In October, a Jacksonville jury convicted Rojas of attempted first-degree murder, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, grand theft auto, and fleeing.

He was sentenced Wednesday to the maximum penalty for each of the crimes – life plus three 15-year sentences and two five-year sentences for the lesser charges – by Judge James Daniel.

The officer, a former Army soldier, called Rojas a coward at the sentencing, according to The Florida Times-Union.

“I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer and an innocent bystander,” the officer said. “When I brought the fight back to you, you ran like a coward.”

Rojas declined to speak on his behalf at his sentencing. He also opted not to have character witnesses testify on his behalf.

His family fled the courtroom in tears after the sentencing, according to the Daily Mail.

Rojas will be eligible for parole in 25 years.
