Very little criticism has been heard on MSNBC of the Democratic House managers during their opening arguments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, but anchor Ari Melber argued Friday that the managers didn't make the case for one of the two articles of impeachment.

Much of the focus on the third day of opening arguments from the House managers was on the article accusing Trump of obstructing Congress.

During a panel discussion, Melber, an attorney, said Democrats made a strong argument for Trump's abuse of power, but a weak one on obstruction.

General Discussion Forum / How to make an innocent client plead guilty

The conversation almost always begins in jail. Sitting with your client in the visitation room, you start preparing them for the most important decision the person has ever made. Though the case is just a few days old, the prosecution has already extended a plea offer that will expire within the week. And, because local laws might require detention for certain charges at the prosecutor's request, or because criminal justice systems punish those unable to pay bail, your client will have to make that decision while sitting in a cage.

Your client is desperate, stripped of freedom and isolated from family. Such circumstances make those accused of crimes more likely to claim responsibility, even for crimes they did not commit. A 2016 paper analyzing more than 420,000 cases determined that those who gained pretrial release were 15.6 percentage points less likely to be found guilty. Not surprisingly, prosecutors commonly condition plea offers on postponing hearings where defendants may challenge their arrests and request release.

A group of Antifa leftists, all of them white, harassed a group of black conservatives who were marching in the Martin Luther King Jr. parade in Denver on Monday, a report said.

The Antifa thugs eventually drew a police escort as they followed the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives (RMBC) during the parade, Valerie Richardson reported for The Washington Times.

If the Antifa group, short for “anti-fascists,” saw any irony in a bunch of whites carrying “Black Lives Matter” signs while intimidating blacks during an MLK event, they didn’t show it, said RMBC executive director Derrick Wilburn.

“They’re a bunch of white kids, and here they are harassing the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives, who are marching in a parade to honor Martin Luther King,” said Wilburn, former vice chairman of the Colorado Republican Party. “They don’t get it. They can’t see the hypocrisy of their own position.”

The future of retail is supposed to include “cashless” stores, where shoppers pay with a swipe, or tap, of their credit or debit card – or with their smartphones.

But New York City lawmakers don’t seem to be buying in.

The City Council in America’s largest city voted 43-3 on Thursday on a bill requiring that all stores accept old-fashioned greenbacks for payment in addition to the electronic-based methods.

Michigan voters continue to oppose the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump, but opposition has slipped slightly since last year, according to a new poll.

Likely general election voters opposed impeachment 51% to 44%, a slight decrease from a May 2019 survey when voters opposed impeachment 53% to 40%, according to a Jan. 3-7 poll of 600 voters by Glengariff Group that was provided to The Detroit News.

More than 100 years ago there was an African-American community in York County. A mix of former slaves and “free Negroes” created a colorful community where they lived mostly independently of white people. Nestled beside the York River, families made a living oystering and farming.

However, in 1918, the entire community of more than 77 families was given 30-days notice and ejected from their land by the United States government so it could build a Navy Mine Depot.

While there are historical documents, a cemetery, family histories and a doctoral thesis written on the community, few know about it. The community is not mentioned in the history of the Naval Weapons Station Yorktown on its official website or Wikipedia page.

But the people who lived in Charles Corner had a story; its one their descendants are eager to tell.


A deputy in Georgetown County was forced to use a taser on his own K-9 on Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy responded to the scene of a reported burglary around 4:00 p.m.

A cow near the scene distracted the dog which led to the dog biting the cow.

To deescalate the situation, the deputy tased the dog.

Space is getting more and more dangerous these days, with Russia and China standing up to weaponize space. Of course, astronauts and other space travelers have carried weapons into orbit before, though they may never have carried anything like this triple-barreled shotgun-machete.

But American astronauts would have no use for such a thing. Soviet Cosmonauts, on the other hand, might need it very badly.

Before the days of the reusable Space Shuttle program, making re-entry required a capsule that would protect the crew of any spacecraft on re-entry. For this the Soviet Union developed the Soyuz, a spacecraft mounted on a Soyuz rocket. Its re-entry vehicle was (and still is) a capsule, similar to the ones the United States used during the Apollo Program. In Apollo, the capsules splashed down into the ocean and were retrieved by the U.S. Navy. The Russians' capsule usually falls back down to Earth in Central Asia.

There's a problem with that, however. Russia is a big country. The Soviet Union was an even bigger country. There's a lot of space such a capsule could get lost in – and one eventually did.

Politics / Black Americans are coming home to the GOP

What do Kay Coles James, Ben Carson, Star Parker, Candace Owens, Ken Blackwell, Diamond and Silk, and Alveda King have in common?

They are bold, compassionate leaders who believe that every person is created equal by God himself. They understand that every human life has infinite value and limitless potential. They have suffered from some sort of discrimination — but are not bitter. Instead, they seek reconciliation, believe in redemption, and work to advance a more just society. They know that hard work, economic freedom, the preservation of the traditional family, and reducing government control are the keys to success.

And they are black Americans who support the policies of President Trump.

If you listen to their personal stories and read their excellent writings, you will understand why they believe that if black Americans — or Hispanic, Asian, white or any other Americans — are to have a better chance of achieving personal success, then Donald Trump must be reelected president.

Leftists, who seek to enslave minorities and hold them captive to government control, don’t want you to read the works of these brave Americans. They use cruel ridicule and slander in an effort to silence them and other heroes from the black community, because they understand that if more people of color knew the truth, they would vote for the freedom policies promoted by Mr. Trump.

We must read and spread their messages so that all Americans can continue to have their lives improved. Read Ms. James’ brilliant writings at or Mr. Carson’s many inspiring speeches at Log on to Ms. Owens’ or to Ms. Parker’s to be inspired. Become educated about the rights of a persecuted people at Ms. King’s

A fantastic new book by veteran political strategists Vernon Robinson III and Bruce Eberle, titled “Coming Home: How Black Americans Will Reelect Trump,” explains why black Americans will unleash freedom for all of us as they show up in record numbers to vote for Republican candidates and Mr. Trump.

President Donald Trump will address the March for Life on Friday in live remarks to hundreds of thousands of pro-life people attending the event from across the country. He will be the first president ever to attend the March for Life in person, having addressed the March via video previously.

March for Life officials told they were delighted President Trump is demonstrating his commitment to pro-life values by appearing in person –joining half a million or more Americans demonstrating their resolve to ending abortion.

Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life, told LifeNews, “We are deeply honored to welcome President Trump to the 47th annual March for Life. He will be the first president in history to attend and we are so excited for him to experience in person how passionate our marchers are about life and protecting the unborn.”

Archaeologists in the ancient city of Pompeii have discovered ancient brain matter that was turned into glass as a result of the volcanic eruption that devastated the city in 79 A.D.

The research, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, notes that a victim from the Vesuvius explosion was discovered in the 1960s at the Collegium Augustalium in Herculaneum. The body was found "lying on a wooden bed, buried by volcanic ash." It wasn't until years later, when the victim's skull was examined, that researchers discovered the brain remains were vitrified, rather than saponified.

"The preservation of ancient brain remains is an extremely rare find, but this is the first-ever discovery of ancient human brain remains, vitrified by heat at about [950 degrees Fahrenheit] produced by a volcanic eruption," the study's lead author, Pier Paolo Petrone, said in an email to Fox News.

A junior varsity basketball player at Ben Lomond High School was handcuffed and detained following his game on Friday at Cedar Valley High School.

Laval Stephens, 16, says he and a group of his teammates were sitting on the Cedar Valley side watching the varsity game when an administrator from Cedar Valley High asked them to move.

Laval told ABC4’s Brittany Johnson, he asked the school official why he had to move if he wasn’t doing anything wrong.

“I was just asking, ‘Can you please give me a reason why I have to move? Is there anywhere in the rulebook that says I have to move?’ “

According to Laval, he agreed to leave the area and walked with his coach back to Ben Lomond’s side of the gym.

The basketball player said while he was walking with his coach, a deputy with the Utah County Sheriff’s Department approached him, and that’s when things escalated and took a turn for the worst.

“When he told me to leave he said, ‘You have five minutes to get outside or you’re trespassing.’ So I went outside. I wasn’t being aggressive. I didn’t even touch him.”

“He starts pushing me in the back and then said ‘You’re walking too slow.’ He grabbed me in the back and started pushing me out the door,” Laval recalled.

“I felt like it was unnecessary because I didn’t do anything. He didn’t even take my backpack off. He just put my hands behind my back. My backpack was weighing down on my hands. It was hurting so bad and the rocks were freezing cold.”

The student-athlete, who says he was not the only Ben Lomond player on the opposing team’s side, believes he was targeted because of his skin color but says it was important for him to stay calm during the ordeal.
