Federal vaccine court quietly pays out billions

A chickenpox outbreak at a private school in North Carolina drew extensive national news coverage in November. The thrust of most stories was the public health threat of unvaccinated children and superstitious beliefs about vaccine risks. But there was little fanfare when, about the same time, an obscure federal program that compensates victims of vaccine injuries passed a milestone. Payouts by the national Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or VICP, have now topped $4 billion. A branch of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the program has adjudicated vaccine injury and death claims for three decades while rarely drawing much attention.…

After receiving three weeks of radiation – which causes cancer – Ruth Bader Ginsburg now claims to be “cancer free” – a status the cancer industry says does not exist

It’s a miracle! Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has not only come back from the dead, she’s also completely cancer free, according to CNN. During an alleged “rare interview” that took place in her chambers – there’s no video or audio evidence, of course – Ginsburg supposedly told a CNN fake news reporter that she’s fit as a fiddle and no longer has any cancer in her body. Defying the cancer industry’s claim that nobody can ever truly be “cured” of cancer – it’s just “remission,” according to the industry – Ginsburg allegedly insisted to CNN that she’s “cancer…

Judge Orders Google to Surrender Smollett Docs

Being fired from Empire isn’t the only bad news actor Jussie Smollet has received lately. Thanks to search warrants and a court order, Google must turn over the actor’s e-mails and other records to a special prosecutor who is probing the hate-crime hoax Smollett perpetrated on the city. Smollett is not the only target of the data search. The special prosecutor’s gumshoes will also look at the recipients of those e-mails, including Smollett’s manager. But Smollett, of course, is the reason they’re looking. He manufactured a tall tale of hate, slurs, and violence, got caught, and now, it appears, will pay the…

Black America Before LBJ: How the Welfare State Inadvertently Helped Ruin Black Communities

“We waged a war on poverty and poverty won.”  President Ronald Reagan, 1988 State of the Union Address The dust has settled and the evidence is in: The 1960s Great Society and War on Poverty programs of President Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) have been a colossal and giant failure. One might make the argument that social welfare programs are the moral path for a modern government. They cannot, however, make the argument that these are in any way effective at alleviating poverty. In fact, there is evidence that such aggressive programs might make generational poverty worse. While the notion of…

CNN Settles $275M Lawsuit With ‘Punchable’ Teenager Nick Sandmann

CNN settled its $250 million lawsuit with Covington High School Student Nicholas Sandmann for an undisclosed sum on Tuesday. Sandmann was viciously attacked by left-leaning news outlets over a deceptively edited video clip from the January, 2019 March for Life rally at the Lincoln Memorial, in which the teenager, seen wearing a MAGA hat, appeared to be mocking a Native American man beating a drum (a known political grifter who lied about the incident, and stole valor). Around a day later, a longer version of the video revealed that Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong – but not until the media…

Court (Barely) Allows Class Action Lawsuit Over Google’s Location Tracking To Move Forward

A 2018 lawsuit [PDF] against Google over location tracking survives, but only just. The lawsuit — filed after a report showed Google was still collecting location data even after users shut off location services on Android phones — alleges Google violated California laws and privacy protections by tracking users (including children) after it had been told not to. The lawsuit has been dismissed [PDF], but the court is giving the plaintiffs a chance to amend the lawsuit and suggesting there are issues the court alone can’t decide. (via FourthAmendment.com) The plaintiffs allege they were led to believe Google would no…

Another sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey dismissed

Kevin Spacey will head into 2020 with another legal issue behind him. The actor has settled a dispute with the estate administrators of a massage therapist who accused him of sexual assault. The plaintiff claimed The Usual Suspects star made him grab his genitals as he tried to kiss him during a private session in October, 2016. The two parties were heading towards a trial next summer when the accuser died in September. As a result, prosecutors decided not to bring charges, and now the estate for the deceased has filed a notice to dismiss the lawsuit, according to Variety.…

Infowars founder who claimed Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax ordered to pay $100,000

Conspiracy promoter and right-wing media personality Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $100,000 in court costs and legal fees stemming from a lawsuit over his claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre of school children was a hoax, court records show. Jones, founder of the Infowars radio show and webcast, has claimed the mainstream media and gun-control proponents conspired to fabricate the tragedy in which 20 school children and six school staff were shot dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 14, 2012.  In response, several parents of the slain 6- and 7-year-old children sued…

US Contractors Accused of Funding Taliban Attacks Against American Troops

Nearly 400 people who were either wounded while serving in the U.S. military in Afghanistan or are family members of service members who died in the conflict sued a group of companies on Friday they say helped fund attacks against Americans by making protection payments to the Taliban. “Defendants supported the Taliban for a simple reason: Defendants were all large Western companies with lucrative businesses in post-9/11 Afghanistan, and they all paid the Taliban to refrain from attacking their business interests,” the 288-page complaint filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. on Friday states. “Those protection payments aided and abetted…

Michigan Sues Opioid Distributors Under Drug Dealer Law

LANSING, Mich. (CN) – Michigan sued a group of opioid distributors Tuesday under a law used to go after illegal drug traffickers, becoming the first state in the nation to treat the pharmaceutical companies like drug dealers in court. The complaint – filed in Wayne County Circuit Court by the Michigan attorney general’s office along with Michigan-based Sam Bernstein Law Firm and nationwide firm Baron & Budd – claims Cardinal Health, McKesson Corporation, AmerisourceBergen and Walgreens knowingly failed to control the flow of addictive opioids into the black market, fueling the massive opioid epidemic. “As the distributors of controlled substances,…

Judge Won’t Force Uber to Treat California Drivers as Employees

SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A federal judge on Monday refused to make Uber reclassify drivers as employees in California, despite claims the alleged misclassification deprives the state of tax dollars and increases its spending on public assistance for low-paid workers. Rejecting claims that a proposed injunction would primarily benefit the general public, U.S. District Judge Edward Chen declined to treat the requested relief as a motion for a “public injunction” as defined in the 2017 Fifth Appellate District ruling McGill v. Citibank. Uber driver and lead plaintiff Thomas Colopy “is seeking a private, not public, injunction,” Chen wrote in his…

Deposition: Paul Joseph Watson Warned Alex Jones Not To Align With ‘Bat Shit Crazy’ Jeff Rense and James Fetzer On Sandy Hook

According to this recent article in Texas Monthy, Infowars editor, Paul Joseph Watson warned Alex Jones not to align himself with ‘bat shit crazy’ people like Jeff Rense and James Fetzer on Sandy Hook. Watson worried the conspiracy theories were damaging Infowar’s reputation and make it harder to break into the mainstream media. In 2015, Infowars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson warned his boss, Alex Jones, that Sandy Hook conspiracy theories were damaging the site’s reputation, making it harder for Infowars to garner the mainstream credibility that Jones sought. “This Sandy Hook stuff is killing us,” Watson wrote to Jones on…

Exxon Ruled Not Guilty in Fraud Suit Over Climate Change

MANHATTAN (CN) – A judge found oil colossus Exxon not guilty of fraud Tuesday, saying the New York attorney general had failed to prove it lied to investors over the real impact of climate change. “Nothing in this opinion is intended to absolve ExxonMobil from responsibility for contributing to climate change through the emission of greenhouse gases in the production of its fossil fuel products,” Justice Barry Ostrager of the Manhattan Supreme Court wrote in his 55-page ruling. “ExxonMobil does not dispute either that its operations produce greenhouse gases or that greenhouse gases contribute to climate change. But ExxonMobil is…

First person to be convicted under Florida’s ‘Red Flag’ firearms law faces up to 5 years in prison

A Deerfield Beach man who was the first in Florida to be charged with defying the state’s “Red Flag” law has been found guilty and is now facing a maximum prison term of five years. Broward Circuit Judge Ernest Kollra ordered a pre-sentencing investigation for Jerron Smith, 33, who was accused in March 2018 of failing to allow law enforcement officials to confiscate his weapons under the new state law, which was designed to take firearms away from those deemed most likely to use them to commit crimes. The so-called “red flag” law was passed in the wake of the…

Bankruptcy Judge Widens PG&E Liability for Wildfires

A federal bankruptcy judge ruled Wednesday that the principle of inverse condemnation applies to investor-owned utilities like Pacific Gas and Electric, meaning the company can be held liable for wildfire damage caused by its equipment even if it was not negligent. “It widens the potential liability,” explained University of California Hastings law professor David Levine in a phone interview. PG&E had argued it should not be held to the same standard as public entities because the state’s utility regulator does not let it automatically pass on inverse condemnation costs to ratepayers. U.S. District Judge Dennis Montali rejected that argument Wednesday,…

Dad who fought to protect son from gender ‘transition’ now under ‘unconstitutional’ gag order

The judge who ruled yesterday that seven-year-old James Younger’s parents will have 50/50 custody of him and joint decision-making over his medical decisions has placed both of them under a gag order. They are prohibited from speaking to the media about the case, which made national news after it was initially ignored by the mainstream media, until James and his twin Jude turn 18. Judge Kim Cooks of the 255th District Court included a gag order on Mr. Jeffrey Younger and Dr. Anne Georgulas in her custody ruling. Dr. Georgulas has been trying to orchestrate a gender “transition” for James…

Kevin Barrett, The Legal Lynching of a Truth-Seeker: Jim Fetzer’s Stalinist-Style Show Trial

Stalinist show trials were conducted in front of rousing images. Jim Fetzer’s trial featured a tear-jerking backdrop image of Noah Pozner Tuesday was the final day of Jim Fetzer’ defense against Lenny Pozner’s libel lawsuit. I attended and wrote up a “just the facts” report that evening. At almost the same moment I published my report, the jury came back with a verdict awarding close to half a million dollars to Lenny “Jim Fetzer gave me PTSD” Pozner. Now it’s time for an opinion piece. And as much as I sympathize with Mr. Pozner, assuming his account is accurate, my opinion…

Free speech is dead and if you dare challenge it we will destroy you financially. From the whore media: A jury in Wisconsin has awarded $450,000 to the father of a boy killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting after he filed a defamation lawsuit against conspiracy theorist writers who claimed the massacre never happened. A Dane County jury on Tuesday decided the amount James Fetzer must pay Leonard Pozner, whose 6-year-old son Noah was among the 26 victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 14, 2012. Fetzer, a retired University of Minnesota Duluth professor now…

Federal Court Upholds Game Warden Roadblocks

The US Supreme Court in 1990 upheld the constitutionality of DUI roadblocks because of the “magnitude of the drunken driving problem.” In an order last week, US District Judge David C. Nye gave his blessing to Idaho officials who set up roadblocks to question and search all passing motorists on the off chance they might have been hunting with an expired hunting license. On November 18, 2017, Steve Tanner was driving on Meadow Creek Road in Bonners Ferry when he was ordered to pull over at a game warden roadblock set up just two miles from his home. Tanner ignored…

Ohio Courts Could Block Public From Voting On Speed Cameras

Ohio voters have spoken clearly in opposition to the use of speed cameras and red light cameras over the past decade. Out of eleven times in which the use of automated enforcement was a ballot issue in the state, cameras only won once. Columbiana County Common Pleas Judge Scott A. Washam could decide on Friday whether he will personally intervene in a local election to protect the speed cameras from the verdict of East Liverpool’s residents. The city of over 10,000 has already printed ballots for the November 5 election asking the question, “Shall the proposed ordinance preventing the city…

Locked Up: How the Modern Prison-Industrial Complex Puts So Many Americans in Jail

The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate per capita in the modern world – why? A toxic combo of ever-expanding laws, rules and regulations, plus a burgeoning police state and a powerful lobby of private prison companies and prison guard unions – all of whom are contributing to disarm Americans, one felony at a time.

Amber Guyger, the police officer who entered her neighbors apartment and killed him, has been found guilty of murder.

Moments ago, former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was found guilty of murder for shooting and killing Botham Jean in his own apartment. She now faces a maximum of life in prison. This verdict is certainly a win for police accountability and definitely not predictable as police officers — even while off duty — are all too often acquitted for hurting or killing innocent people. The deliberations started on Monday and were expected to last through the middle of the week. However, Tuesday morning, the jury came back with a unanimous verdict of guilty. The reason so many people thought…

Actress Felicity Huffman Gets 2-Week Sentence in College Bribery Case

Former “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman was sentenced Friday to 14 days in prison for her involvement in the nationwide college admissions bribery scandal that ensnared wealthy parents, business executives and coaches. “I am sorry to you, Judge [Indira] Talwani,” said Huffman, during the sentencing hearing. “As a federal judge you represent our country’s legal system and the laws I have broken.
