Judge orders Michael Cohen to be released from prison....

NEW YORK (AP) — A judge ordered the release from prison of President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer on Thursday, saying he believes the government retaliated against him for planning to release a book about Trump before November's election.

Michael Cohen's First Amendment rights were violated when he was ordered back to prison on July 9 after probation authorities said he refused to sign a form banning him from publishing the book or communicating publicly in other manners, U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein said during a telephone conference.

Hellerstein ordered Michael Cohen released from prison by 2 p.m. on Friday.

“How can I take any other inference than that it’s retaliatory?” Hellerstein asked prosecutors, who insisted in court papers and again Thursday that Probation Department officers did not know about the book when they wrote a provision of home confinement that severely restricted Cohen's public communications.

“I’ve never seen such a clause in 21 years of being a judge and sentencing people and looking at terms of supervised release,” the judge said. “Why would the Bureau of Prisons ask for something like this ... unless there was a retaliatory purpose?"

In ruling, Hellerstein said he made the “finding that the purpose of transferring Mr. Cohen from furlough and home confinement to jail is retaliatory.” He added: “And it’s retaliatory for his desire to exercise his First Amendment rights to publish the book.”


HUGE: Supreme Court says eastern Oklahoma remains Native American territory

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the eastern half of Oklahoma can be considered Native American territory, a decision the state warned could create "civil, criminal and regulatory turmoil."

The 5-4 decision was written by Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch and joined by the court's four liberal justices. The justices considered the issue for the second time after failing to decide a different case last year, when Gorsuch was recused and the court likely deadlocked.

The case concerned an appeal from Jimcy McGirt, a Native American, who claimed his state rape conviction from 1997 should be overturned because Oklahoma lacked jurisdiction. Congress, his lawyer Ian Gershengorn said, never properly terminated the reservation.


The real reason I wanted to watch Trump's rally tonight

was to see if he would end up setting a forest fire with his ill-advised fireworks display.

Not that I would wish it, but it's a real concern amidst the drought and the ponderosa pines.

Has Malcolm Nance made a statement about Russian Bounties?

I always value his perspective.

Biden responds to the Russia Bounty news:


Steve Schmidt up next on The Last Word

After commercials.


Finally thought of a name that should stick:

Clumsy Drumpf

Clumsy Drumpf vs. *Sleepy* Joe:


So, I go to my bank this morning,

and it's got a sign on the door, "closed due to COVID-19 concerns. Go to the branch office." I go to the branch office, and it has the same "closed due to COVID-19" signs. ATM machine also closed down at both places, except for withdrawals at the branch....No word about how long....Weird....

White rioter causing damage swarmed and unmasked by protesters and handed over to cops

OK, Trump, bring on the military and get these "very fine people" and bring THEM to justice....


Also this:

"Very organized...we really need to focus on these terrorist cell groups and figure out exactly who are leading them!

"Minneapolis and St Paul are being attacked by fascist 'accelerationist' white crazies. Trying to divide & destroy us." A letter from Minneapolis. - 5/30/20 "-

(I also witnessed the same type of thing in a video last night happening in Seattle. A lone white guy in black with a hammer breaking windows... Black protesters confronting him telling him not to do it and then he started walking away fast.)

"Everything changed when the sun went down. There are roving and highly organized bands of anti-government neo-nazi white supremacists.

Accelerationism: the idea inspiring white supremacist killers around the world -Vox"

Expect these same types to infiltrate all of the legitimate protests happening in other cities in America. We are fighting an enemy within.

These "accelerationists" burned down the 5th Police Precinct, our post office, every pharmacy. The Wallgreens and CVS within a few blocks of our house are still burning this morning. The grocery stores were all hit. Every bank has been hit. Every liquor store, every gas station. They have guns and accelerants.

When National Guard show up, they disappear into the neighborhoods and have been setting fires. It is a violent game of arsonist wake-a-mole. There is no longer any fire fighting service available - overwhelmed. So neighbors are using garden hoses to put out the fires and save homes. Pictures neighbors are sharing - these are young white men, heavily armed.

According to authorities there are over 10,000 of these "accelerationists" in the city. St. Paul arrested over 50 people last night. ALL OF THEM were from out of state. The authorities are checking phones of the people they have arrested, doing contact tracing of sorts on these people. These people are connected to right wing militia style groups with a civil/race war fantasy. They are opportunistically using the legitimate, peaceful George Floyd protests as a cover to actualize their neo-nazi fever dream."
