Cohen case is heard by Judge Kimba Wood — aka the ‘Love Judge’ – NY Daily News

The judge hearing the legal fight between federal investigators and the President Trump lawyer who inked a hush agreement with a porn star knows her way around Playboy Playmates and a steamy scandal.Judge Kimba Wood, the brilliant legal mind who has served in Manhattan Federal Court since 1988 and was once nominated for the U.S. Attorney General post, briefly worked at a Playboy casino in 1966.But her flirtation with Hugh Hefner’s bunny biz pales in comparison to an extramarital affair she allegedly had in the 1990s that became tabloid fodder.Wood was dubbed the “Love Judge” in 1995 when the soon-to-be ex-wife of a multimillionaire Wall Street financier found his diary, which was filled with passionate prose about his trysts with the jurist.

The illicit romance began in the spring of that year with dinners at ritzy restaurants and weekend getaways at Wood’s country home. At the time, Kimba was married to a Time magazine columnist but the two were about to divorce.

Judge orders government to inform immigrant children in federal custody of right to abortion – Washington Times

A federal judge has ordered the government to inform all illegal immigrant children in federal custody that they have an unfettered right to an abortion in the U.S.

Notices, in English and Spanish, must be passed out “to all unaccompanied minors” regardless of whether they are pregnant — or even girls. The order kicks in “immediately,” U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, who has been overseeing a long-running dispute over illegal immigrants’ abortion rights, wrote in her Friday ruling.

Notices are also to be posted at the dorms where the Unaccompanied Alien Children are staying, and any girl who discovers she’s pregnant must again be informed of her rights to an abortion here in the U.S. That notice must be given in her “primary spoken language,” which could go well beyond English or Spanish.

Dismantle Whiteness Poster At USC | The Daily Caller

It’s also pretty ironic that this message is supposed to encourage diversity when it’s straight up calling for the dismantling of an entire race.

When pressed on the issue, a communications professor told the College Fix “The installation is intended to spark dialogue. To that end, the signage is meant to offer grounding of terms and ideas. There is no expectation that everyone agree with the statement offered by the artists, but hopefully viewers can acknowledge the experience of peers on campus around these issues.”

Imagine for just a moment if this sign advocated for the downfall of any other race. I highly doubt this professor – or anybody else on campus – would defend the sentiment. Flagrantly conflating a race with misogyny is not an educational exercise. It’s a misinformation campaign.

London’s Mayor Declares Intense New ‘Knife Control’ Policies To Stop Epidemic Of Stabbings | Daily Wire

An epidemic of stabbings and acid attacks in London has gotten so bad that London mayor Sadiq Khan is announcing broad new “knife control” policies designed to keep these weapons of war out of the hands of Londoners looking to cause others harm.

The “tough, immediate” measures involve an incredible police crackdown, a ban on home deliveries of knives and acid, and expanding law enforcement stop-and-search powers so that police may stop anyone they believe to be a threat, or planning a knife or acid attack.

Sadiq Khan FINALLY responds after criticism over London’s crime rise | UK | Assault Knives Band!

Assault Knives Band!

LONDON Mayor Sadiq Khan has responded after facing a huge amount of criticism for not speaking out following the news that London’s death rate had overtaken that of New York for knife and gun crime.

Responding to Mr Lammy’s comments, Mr Khan’s spokesperson said: “The Mayor’s door is always open to MPs who want to discuss vital issues in the capital and he frequently visits boroughs right across London to see what’s happening on the ground – and the Mayor and Deputy Mayor for Policing have been out with the police on knife sweeps this year.

“Knife crime is an issue across London and the country – and one that the Mayor takes extremely seriously.

“The safety of Londoners is his number one priority.

“We are focusing all our energy and resources on bringing those responsible to justice and Sadiq refuses to accept that nothing can be done to stem the appalling tide of violent killings. He is determined to work ceaselessly to stop it.”

Obama State Dept used taxpayer dollars to fund George Soros group’s political activities in Albania, watchdog group says | Fox News

The Obama administration sent U.S. taxpayer funds to a group backed by billionaire George Soros to fund left-wing activities in Albania, a conservative watchdog group says.The group, Judicial Watch, obtained 32 pages of records from the Justice Department this week through a May 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID.)The new documents show USAID funds were sent through the agency’s Civil Society Project to back Soros’ left-wing “East West Management Institute” through USAID’s “Justice for All” campaign. USAID provided $8.8 million in 2016 to that campaign. The Justice for All Project was designed to strengthen the effectiveness and transparency of the courts in Albania.

“The Obama administration quietly spent at least $9 million in U.S. taxpayers’ dollars in direct collusion with left-wing billionaire George Soros’ backing of a socialist government in Albania,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement Wednesday. “It is particularly outrageous that the State Department allowed the Soros operation to help direct taxpayer funds to other groups.”

California governor pardons 5 men facing deportation | The Sacramento Bee

California Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday pardoned five ex-convicts facing deportation, including two whose families fled the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia four decades ago.The pardons don’t automatically stop deportation proceedings, but eliminate the state convictions federal authorities based their deportation decisions on. That gives the men’s lawyers strong legal arguments before immigration judges to try to prevent the deportations.”The pardon does provide enormous benefit to immigrants facing deportation,” said Anoop Prasad, an immigration staff attorney at Asian Law Caucus.Brown’s intervention for the men — among 56 pardoned — marked the Democratic governor’s third consecutive pardon round in which he intervened on behalf of immigrants who were deported or faced deportation because of criminal convictions. Brown has accused the administration of President Donald Trump of “basically going to war” with California over immigration policy.
