Loser’s Report: Chutkan to Violence to Garland to Insurance to Hochul
by Tom Reynolds
Appointing U.S. Attorney Weiss as special counsel, a man who tried to unethically slide Hunter’s corrupt plea deal past a federal judge, is further evidence of the politization of the Department of Justice under Merrick Garland. In fact, Mr. Weiss should be under investigation for his compromised, sweetheart plea deal for Hunter Biden.
Given the powerful testimony before Congress by senior IRS investigators that the criminal investigation of Hunter was obstructed by the Justice Department (when Weiss was nominally running the investigation) in order to protect Joe Biden, Weiss is the last person who should be special counsel.
Former President Donald Trump on Monday shared a quote from U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, (appointed by the Obama administration) who is overseeing his 2020 election case.
Chutkan made this quote during last year’s sentencing of Christine Priola. Over January 6 activities
“And the people who mobbed that Capitol were there in fealty, in loyalty to one man, not to the Constitution, of which most of the people who come before me seem woefully ignorant; not to the ideals of this county and not to the principles of democracy. It’s blind loyalty to one person who, by the way, remains free to this day.”
Sounds like liberal justices aren’t exactly blind when it comes to President Trump and his supporters.
On Monday we wrote about Violence Interrupters in NY City.
Let’s try Chicago for more liberal crime fighting efforts.
At least 23 people were shot over the weekend in Chicago, three of them fatally and over 370 people have been killed thus far in 2023.
Native Sons, a group from Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood, is asking that gang members pledge to cease fire from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily so no one lives in fear of being shot while going about their day-to-day activities.
Maybe they should also ask that no stores be robbed during that time period. That would help keep stores open in underserved neighborhoods.
Or they should also ask that no illegal drugs be sold between 9AM and 9 PM, too. That would save lives, too.
Liberal ideas sound wonderful and give them the satisfaction of saying they are doing something. Unfortunately, they don’t work.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed U.S. Attorney David Weiss as special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden which should lead to Biden family finances.
This per the Buffalo News:
A new law took effect on August 1st. When auto insurance is issued, renewed or modified in New York, companies must now add “supplemental spousal liability insurance” to a person’s plan and provide the consumer written notification of the addition.
The background to this is:
When a driver is at fault for a car accident in New York, others who sustain a serious injury generally may sue the potentially negligent driver for damages, including pain and suffering. But previously, if the spouse of the negligent driver is injured, the injured spouse generally cannot sue their husband or wife and then recover money from their spouse's insurance policy.
The new exception:
If the driver has the “supplemental spousal liability insurance,” the injured spouse may sue their significant other, who was driving, and seek payment from the driver’s insurer for non-economic damages, including pain and suffering.
Without the supplemental insurance, spouses of negligent drivers do enjoy some protection from auto accidents. Regardless of who’s at fault for an accident, insurance plans in New York are liable for up to $50,000 per person for lost wages or medical bills. But such minimum “no fault” insurance does not cover lawsuits alleging that a negligent driver has caused non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Since this is being added to all insurance policies in NY State, it includes millions of unmarried motorists who would derive no benefit from the extra coverage.
Opting out of this coverage (for instance - you might want to if you are not married) requires the consumer to be aware of the new law, contact their insurance company and sign a form declining the coverage.
Governor Kathy Hochul had the ability to veto this abortion of a bill but since she is pro abortion… and since the beginning of 2021, the Trial Lawyers Association’s political action committee, LAWPAC, has donated about $1.5 million to state politicians on both sides of the aisle...
Anyway, liberal minds can rest easy that this will be financed by the insurance company which they believe does not get its money from things like higher insurance rates paid by the consumers. (Sarcasm intended.)
Nearly a third of America’s cities are no longer reporting crime statistics to the FBI.
Per The Marshall Project: Twenty four percent (24%) of New York State’s police departments sent their crime data to the FBI. Just 141 of the 583 New York police agencies reported data in 2022.
As was pointed out yesterday, New York’s Governor Kathy Hochul signed into law a package of gun control bills after New York’s restrictive concealed carry laws were struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court’s Bruen decision. And now, NY State plans on enforcing ammunition background checks, which cannot be completed by the FBI.
One would think that government officials would want the most complete data possible when making decisions.
