A Holder of Political Ideology, not Justice

A Holder of Political Ideology, not Justice

by Patrick Devlin If you ask an attorney if torture is OK, if broad based warrantless wiretapping is allowed, if wealthy private corporations can be absolved of felonies just because they are wealthy corporations, if American citizens can be executed with a no charges leveled against them or trial – it really doesn’t matter what political party they are affiliated with – a member of the bar will generally agree that none of the above statements make sense, and in fact, these statements actually contravene our laws, our treaties and our constitution. But, if you are asking these questions of […]

Colbert Swallows the Hill-Pill

Colbert Swallows the Hill-Pill

by Patrick Devlin After a long day of anti-comedy at work I sat down determined to be info-tained by watching the comedy news. The Daily Show had ended but I consoled myself that I was not too late for the Clobert Report (better show, anyhow).

South African church leaders have seen this all before

beware the potemkin democrats

by Patrick Devlin As reported late last week, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who, late last year, was rumored to be considering, or being considered as a prospective left-challenge candidate to take on the putative front runner Hillary Clinton in the up-coming race for the presidency, made an angry and impassioned demand of the National Security Agency that it reveal if or if it is not spying on elected US officials and their staffs. In a letter to NSA Director Keith Alexander that Sanders made public on January 3, the senator said he was “deeply concerned” about the recent revelations regarding […]
