    Last December, the Supreme Court gathered to hear oral arguments in Shinn v. Ramirez, a case that could mean life or death for Barry Jones, who sits on death row in Arizona for the rape and murder of his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter, Rachel. In 2018, a federal court overturned Jones’ conviction, concluding that he had failed to receive effective counsel, a violation of his Sixth Amendment rights. Had that happened, a federal judge ruled, “there is a reasonable probability that his jury would not have convicted him of any of the crimes with which he was charged and previously convicted.” After losing in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Arizona’s attorney general appealed the decision to the Supreme Court. During those oral arguments, state prosecutors repeatedly argued that “innocence isn’t enough” of a reason to throw out Jones’s conviction. On Monday morning, by a 6-3 vote, the Supreme Court concurred: Barry Jones’s innocence is not enough to keep him off of death row. The state of Arizona can still kill Jones, even if there exists a preponderance of evidence...
    During a Friday interview with ABC News’ “GMA3,” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) called for the expansion of the U.S. Supreme Court. Omar argued that there was “a question to the legitimacy” of the Supreme Court, given the majority of justices on the court now were appointed by a president who didn’t win the popular vote. Her reasoning for expanding the court was that “the number of justices is not given to us in the Constitution.” Host TJ Holmes pointed out to the Minnesota lawmaker that Republicans could respond to the Democrats’ expansion by expanding it themselves when they held majority. “I mean, that’s a way to look at it. I don’t think of it that way,” Omar replied. “If we think about the Supreme Court, the number of justices is not given to us in the Constitution. … There’s not a specific number. The court has been expanded seven times in our nation’s history. And in this particular time, given the fact that we have overwhelming majority of the justices being appointed by presidents that did not reflect the will of...
    Monday on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) sounded off on the full-court press applied to Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas and his Supreme Court colleagues through an apparent leak of a draft opinion on a pending court decision on abortion. Cruz said he did not believe Thomas was intimidated by the pressure campaign and insisted it was a law clerk sympathetic to left-of-center politics who leaked the opinion for Democrat’s political gain. “Well, listen, Justice Thomas is a great American hero,” he said. “I know him well. The left is trying to demonize him and attack him. One of the things I love about Justin Thomas — he’s got that big, booming laugh. It’s almost like Santa Claus — ‘Ho, ho, ho.” He is not intimidated by the leftists that are coming after him. And you know, what he just said there that you aired a second ago is this leak at the Supreme Court — was the radical left trying to destroy or Supreme Court. It went right to the heart of the trust in that institution....

    Left-wing pop star John Legend has hit the panic button over the Supreme Court’s likely overturning of Roe v. Wade, wildly proclaiming that “we’re teetering on the brink of not being a democracy.” In a recent interview with The Guardian, John Legend laid out his doomsday scenario. “I can’t watch this shit happen and not say something,” John Legend told the British newspaper. “We’re teetering on the brink of not being a full democracy. We’re about to implement The Handmaid’s Tale into law.” Legend’s assertion that the Supreme Court’s forthcoming decision will imperil democracy is not only unfounded, but it is the exact opposite of what would happen. If the high court overturns Roe, the question of abortion will revert back to the states, who have the power to allow their own residents to vote on the abortion debate — in other words, the essence of democracy. The pop star recently announced that he and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, will be donating money to abortion charities in order to “fight fo our fellow citizens and democracy.” Today, @chrissyteigen and I...

    (CNN)Justice Clarence Thomas on Friday expressed dismay at the recent leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would strike down Roe v. Wade, comparing it to "an infidelity" and saying it has changed the culture of the nation's highest court."The institution that I'm a part of, if someone said that one line of one opinion would be leaked by anyone, you'd say, 'Oh, that's impossible. No one would ever do that.' There is such a belief in the rule of law, a belief in the court, a belief in what we were doing that that was verboten," Thomas said. "It was beyond anyone's understanding, or at least anyone's imagination, that someone would do that."The comments from the 73-year-old justice were delivered at an "Old Parkland Conference" event sponsored by the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute in Dallas. The remarks echoed those he had made earlier this month in Atlanta, when he said government institutions shouldn't be "bullied" into delivering what some see as the preferred outcome.Thomas was interviewed by former law clerk John Yoo, a law professor at the University...

    Daryl Hannah will not be called to give evidence against disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein, a judge in Los Angeles ruled Wednesday. The actress was on a list of 16 potential witnesses the prosecution wanted to call in Weinstein's sex assault case due to be heard later this year. But after hearing fierce protests from the former Hollywood big shot's attorney, Judge Lisa Lench reduced the number of additional 'victims' she will allow to six. She identified four of them – identified as Natassia, Kelly S, Miss I and Miriam H – and told the prosecution it could choose two more. But Hannah, who claimed Weinstein had banged on her hotel door, forcing her to leave through a window, and McGowan will not be among those called, Variety reported.  Calling 16 more women – none of whom has proven their cases in court – is a 'cynical ploy to overwhelm the court,' said Weinstein's lawyer, Mark Werksman who accused prosecutors of trying to portray the 69 year-old as an 'all-purpose, all weather, 24-7 rapist.' He called the large number of...
    A man who was rescued from a raft off the coast of New England in 2016 after his boat sank has insisted that he is not guilty of killing his mother at sea in a plot to inherit the family's estate. Nathan Carman, 28, arrived at federal court in Rutland, Vermont on Wednesday to be arraigned on multiple fraud charges and a charge of murder on the high seas in the death of his mom Linda Carman.  He shouted 'Not guilty!' in the direction of reporters as he approached the courtroom. Authorities alleged in the indictment unsealed Tuesday that Carman also fatally shot his grandfather, John Chakalos, at his home in Windsor, Connecticut, in 2013 as part of a scheme to obtain money and property from his grandfather's estate, but he was not charged with that killing. 'As a central part of the scheme, Nathan Carman murdered John Chakalos and Linda Carman,' the indictment reads. CBS Local Boston Privacy Policy Carman is seen after his 'rescue' at sea in 2016.

    Shocking new footage of a car barreling into pedestrians in Times Square has emerged as the murder trial of the Bronx man behind the wheel continues. Surveillance video released by the Manhattan District Attorney's office shows a burgundy sedan making a sharp U-turn on 7th Street. The car then drives over the sidewalk, ramming down everyone in its way across three city blocks at incredible speeds. Bodies are seen strewn above and below the car as it continues on its path of destruction. It crashes against a curb and ends up with its two side wheels in the air. The driver, Richard Rojas, then gets out of the car, jumps up and down and flails his arms.  A traffic cop tackles him, and other pedestrians help hold him down until police arrive. At his trial on Monday, Ava Elsman remembered 'just trying to lay there [and] not die' as she bled out.  She was just 13 when she visited the tourist hub with her family back on May 8, 2017. The family had arrived in the city the same morning...
    Chief Justice John Roberts also spoke out about the leak. After he confirmed the draft is authentic, Roberts described the leak as "absolutely appalling." "If the person behind it thinks that it will affect our work, that’s just foolish," Roberts said Thursday at a judicial conference.Anything else?The source of the leak is being investigated by Col. Gail Curley, marshal of the Supreme Court. The identity of the leaker, presumed to be a law clerk, remains unknown. However, few people have access to opinion drafts, thus narrowing the scope of potential suspects. The criminality of such a leak is debatable. Still, theories about the source of the leak have fallen on partisan lines. Conservatives have suggested a left-leaning law clerk leaked the opinion draft to trigger societal upheaval and to pressure the court's conservative-leaning justices to change their votes. Others, however, charge that a conservative clerk leaked the opinion draft to pin down the court's conservative-leaning justices from changing their vote. NPR reporter Nina Totenberg claimed Sunday the "leading theory" is that a conservative clerk was behind the leak. However, she...
    The man arrested for attacking Dave Chappelle at the Hollywood Bowl appeared in court on Friday with a bandaged arm in a sling as he pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges and had his bail set at $30,000.  Isaiah Lee, 23, was charged with battery, possession of a weapon with intent to assault, unauthorized access to the stage area during a performance, and commission of an act that delays the event or interferes with the performer after he allegedly attacked the comedian on Tuesday night.  A judge also ordered Lee to stay at least 100 yards away from Chapelle, any venue where he is performing and from his residence, as well as to stay 100 yards away from the Hollywood Bowl.    Lee, who faces 18 months in count jail if convicted, ran on stage at the Hollywood Bowl yielding a knife that was hidden inside a gun as he attempted to tackled Chappelle, 48. The comedian was able to sidestep Lee and was unharmed. The attacker was then arrested at the scene, and taken to hospital with a broken...
    Live from Music Row Thursday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – official guest host Grant Henry discussed the fear-mongering and the politicization of the Supreme Court. GRANT HENRY: You just heard Joe Biden talk about there that this has become a standard talking point for some of the now-leaked Roe v. Wade opinion, which has been verified as authentic now by Chief Justice John Roberts. Of course, they have also launched an investigation as to who was the leak. But this Biden talking point now is meant to lead into what I think you’re going to be hearing over the next couple of weeks, and certainly, as we get much closer to these midterms general [election]s in November. That idea being that this will just be the precursor to a litany of other things that are going to be struck down by this conservative Supreme Court. Let me pause for a second and say, I don’t even like the idea of terming a...
    Last summer conservative groups secretly trained countless right-wingers to swarm local school board meetings across the country to drum up fake opposition to “Critical Race Theory,” a college-level discipline that examines institutional racism. The right-wing media outlets like Fox News seemingly almost nightly aired the out-of-control ginned up protests. At no point did Fox News denounce them. In fact, fast forward to October of last year, when Fox News falsely characterized a memo from Attorney General Merrick Garland, claiming he called parents protesting CRT “domestic terrorists.” Here’s Fox News propagandist Peter Doocy challenging White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on that very issue last year: “Does the President support the fundamental right of these parents to protest at these school board meetings?” he asked. Doocy: Does the President support the fundamental right of these parents to protest at these school board meetings?\nPsaki: Of course but he doesn\u2019t stand for people to take violent action against people who are public servants and that\u2019s what the threats are about.pic.twitter.com/4e9RxGMgLY — Acyn (@Acyn) 1633552462 Parents protesting nonexistent “CRT” in schools have a “fundamental...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki refused to condemn on Thursday plans for protests to take place outside of conservative Supreme Court justices' homes over the leaked draft opinion that suggests they plan to overturn Roe v. Wade.  'Look, I think the president's view is that there's a lot of passion, a lot of fear, a lot of sadness from many, many people across this country about what they saw in that leaked document,' Psaki said. 'We obviously want people's privacy to be respected.' She added to the query, asked by Fox News Channel's Peter Doocy, 'I don't have an official U.S. Government position on where people protest.'

    Republican Senate candidate Kathy Barnette called out Dr. Mehmet Oz during a tense exchange about abortion, revealing she was the byproduct of rape. On Wednesday, candidates for Pennsylvania GOP Senate primary gathered for a debate as they attempt to sway voters before the May 17 primary election. Candidates were asked about their stance on abortion days after Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, was leaked.  It was then that candidate Kathy Barnette, a conservative political commentator, explained her personal connection to the pro-life movement, revealing she was the byproduct of a rape.  Kathy Barnette, a conservative political commentator, explained her personal connection to the pro-life movement, revealing she was the byproduct of a rape Dr. Oz defended his pro-life stance, saying his work as a heart surgeon could never allow him to harm a baby 'I am so very grateful that our nation is having a very important conversation about life,' she said.

    Mark Levin joined Sean Hannity on Tuesday to give his reaction to a leaked Supreme Court opinion draft that is set to overturn Roe v. Wade. Barring a change of mind from one of the court’s conservative justices, the landmark case ruling that abortion is a constitutionally protected right is poised to be struck down. Politico published the document on Monday night. Written by Justice Samuel Alito, the opinion declares, “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.” The opinion says abortion is a matter for the states to decide. Levin appeared on Hannity, where he deployed his preferred method of beginning to speak in a soft tone about a subject before gradually crescendoing into verbal tizzy. On Tuesday, however, he ended up flat-out yelling into the camera. The Fox News weekend host accused Democrats of railing against the opinion without having read it. “There is no federal constitutional right to abortion, period!” he exclaimed, before ripping the 1973 court that decided the case. “They amended the Constitution without...
    The husband of Hollywood actress Zara Phythian accused of sexually abusing a schoolgirl angrily told police 'I'm no paedophile', a court has heard. Taekwondo 'master' Victor Marke is accused of grooming the youngster from the age of 13 alongside his wife Zara, who starred in the hit 2016 Marvel film 'Doctor Strange' with Benedict Cumberbatch. Prosecutors claim the pair, both martial arts experts, regularly assaulted the teenager between 2005 and 2008 at their home - with Victor occasionally filming the incidents. Jurors at Nottingham Crown Court have been told the alleged abuse began after the Markes plied the girl with rum, before Zara, who has appeared in several movies under the name Zara Phythian, 'dared' her to perform a sex act on Victor. The assaults are said to have progressed to including full sexual intercourse, with activity taking place 'once or twice a month', with the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, being ordered 'not to tell anyone'. The court also heard how Victor denied being a paedophile during his police interview, before adding the girl could have...
    A Maryland Democrat has joined in on the chorus of liberals slamming a Supreme Court draft opinion overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion in the United States - saying it is reminiscent of The Handmaid's Tale. Speaking to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow after news broke Monday night that Justice Samuel Alito wrote a draft opinion repudiating both Roe and the 1992 Planned Parenthood vs. Casey decision, Rep. Jamie Raskin, of Maryland, said it is a 'full-on example of The Handmaid's Tale,' referring to the novel by Margaret Atwood - which was later turned into a television show. In both the novel and the show, women are forced by the state to give birth. 'The basic legal claim here is that the word "abortion" doesn't appear in the Constitution, and of course it doesn't appear in the Constitution,' Raskin, a Constitutional lawyer, explained on the show.  'But the Supreme Court in 1973, in Roe v. Wade or Griswold v. Connecticut - which was a 1965 decision by the Supreme Court striking down a law banning birth control, even...
