Sun, Sep 25, 2022 at 7:07 am

It will be his first political event in a state that is home to Donald Trump and Governor Ron DeSantis. Mr. Biden and the governor have clashed over COVID-19, gender, and immigration issues.

Guilty Verdict for a Man Who Entered the Capitol on Jan. 6

Sat, Sep 24, 2022 at 10:10 pm

A man who was among the first to enter the Capitol on January 6, 2021, was found guilty on seven criminal counts. More on this from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

After deliberating for about four hours, the 10-man, 2-woman jury unanimously found Doug Jensen, an Iowa construction worker, guilty of crimes ranging from civil disorder to obstruction. Sentencing on the five felonies and two misdemeanors is scheduled for Dec. 16.

The most serious charge against Jensen was obstructing an official proceeding, which carries a maximum 20-year sentence, compared to maximum terms of five years for civil disorder or one year for entering restricted grounds or impeding a police officer.

Any post-trial motions made by the defense must be filed by Oct. 14. The prosecution’s response is due Oct.28.

One of the entertainment industry’s biggest unions will pay for abortions

VERBATIM: The Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Radio and Television Artists say it will pay to help its members travel wherever they need to for an abortion. The decision is hardly surprising. A growing number of the country’s biggest entertainment companies, including Diney, Netflix and Warner Brothers have already gone all-in on abortion. Hollywood is also actively boycotting states that have passed pro-life laws. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
