Top Ten States in Educational Attainment

“For a growing number of Americans, a good education is the ticket to a better future. College opens doors to more career opportunities, higher earnings and new social connections, among other benefits. But how much schooling one receives also matters to some extent. Generally, the higher the level of education one completes, the higher their income potential and the lower their chances of unemployment become.

In this study, WalletHub examined the key factors of a well-educated population: educational attainment, school quality and achievement gaps between genders and races. We compared all 50 states across 20 total metrics grouped into two categories. The data set ranges from share of adults aged 25 and older with at least a high school diploma to average university quality to gender gap in educational attainment.”

Republican arrested for pandering

Louisiana Republican Congressional Aide arrested on pandering charges

An aide to Louisiana Republican Congressman Clay Higgins was arrested Saturday on two charges of pandering, according to the Lafayette Parish jail records.

47-year-old Jerod Prunty of Lafayette was arrested at his home Saturday night, according to Lafayette Parish Sheriff Spokesperson Lt. John Mowell.

Mowell confirmed with News 10 that Prunty's arrest is connected to the numerous arrests made Wednesday, February 13 when 8 people were charged for their alleged involvement in prostitution and possible human trafficking in the Lafayette Parish area.

KLFY has confirmed that Prunty worked in the Lafayette Congressional Offices of Congressman Clay Higgins.

Congressman Higgins office sent this statement to KLFY.

"We are shocked and saddened to learn of allegations against Jerod. His arrest is deeply troubling. Jerod has been placed on administrative leave, pending investigation and adjudication. Should our office be approached during the investigation, we will cooperate fully. We are a Constitutionalist office, thus we have full faith in our judicial process.

The Congressman has complete confidence in the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office. Investigations like this are complex, and although we are shocked by this, we have faith in our judicial system and the authorities involved.
Our office will move forward without interruption. Our dedication to service is stronger than any challenge."

Prunty's combined bond on the two charges of pandering was $25,000 and jail records show him as not in jail as of Sunday.

He is scheduled to appear in a Lafayette Parish courtroom to answer to the charges, Tuesday February 19, at 8 a.m.

Thats the way I like Republicans: apologizing

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz personally apologizes to Michael Cohen after Twitter smearing ex-Trump lawyer; PAC files ethics complaint to Congress
Rep. Matt Gaetz says he "personally apologized" for Twitter smearing Michael Cohen, a former lawyer for President Donald Trump.
Gaetz, a Florida Republican, was accused in a complaint filed by the Democratic Coalition political action committee of violating criminal law and House rules by his inflammatory tweet that suggested without evidence that the married Cohen had girlfriends.
Cohen, who testified before a congressional committee hours after Gaetz's attack, pleaded guilty to crimes that included ones related to hush money payoffs he facilitated to two women, Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, who claim to have had affairs with Trump shortly after Melania Trump gave birth to their son.

Violent Trump Supporters Plead Guilty

Proud Boys Plead Guilty To Charges Stemming From NYC Attacks
Ten Proud Boys were charged in connection to attacks outside a GOP event. Two took plea deals.

Prosecutors are recommending jail terms for members of the Proud Boys extremist gang, two of whom have pleaded guilty so far to charges stemming from a vicious attack outside a GOP event in Manhattan late last year.

Ten members of the Proud Boys appeared in New York Supreme Court on Friday, having initially faced charges of assault and rioting after they were caught on video ruthlessly beating protesters outside the Metropolitan Republican Club on the Upper East Side in October.

Initially, the Proud Boys ― a gang of right-wing extremists founded by Gavin McInnes, known for attacking protesters across the country ― blamed anti-fascists for starting the fight that night. But in December, surveillance video from a nearby building, along with footage taken by journalist Sandi Bachom, made it clear that the Proud Boys were the aggressors.

Two of them have taken plea deals in the case. Jake Freijo and Eryk Kacznyski pleaded guilty Friday to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct in exchange for their freedom and five days of community service. Another two ― Irvin Antillon and David Jacob ― are due back in court later this month.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office recommended a variety of sentences for an additional six men, from probation up to a year in jail. Each was offered a plea deal to various assault and rioting charges.

Federal Appeals Court Upholds Mueller Investigation

DC Federal appeals court upholds Mueller investigation

A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. has turned aside a legal challenge to the Special Counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, ruling that Robert Mueller was legally appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, rejecting the arguments brought by an associate of Roger Stone.

A three judge panel said Andrew Miller, who has been found in contempt of court for refusing to comply with a grand jury subpoena, did not prove that Mueller's appointment was illegal, as the judges said Rosenstein was legally vested with the power to appoint Mueller, with then Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused from the Russia investigation.

Netanyahu to be indicted

So many Rightys, so many indictments. Come on righty, how hard is it to keep your nose clean?

AP/JERUSALEM: “Israel’s attorney general says he has decided to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on a series of corruption charges.

“Avichai Mandelblit said Thursday he has accepted the police recommendations to file charges against Netanyahu in three different cases, pending a final hearing. In a Justice Ministry statement, Mandelblit says he plans to charge Netanyahu with bribery for promoting regulatory changes worth hundreds of millions of dollars to telecom giant Bezeq in return for positive press coverage in Bezeq’s popular subsidiary news site Walla.

“He will also charge Netanyahu with fraud and breach of trust in two other cases. The first involves accepting gifts from billionaire friends and the second revolves around alleged offers of advantageous legislation for a major newspaper in return for favorable coverage.”

Deal or no deal?

No deal: Trump walks away and gets bipartisan praise.
“Trump Gets Bipartisan Praise for Walking Out of Summit With Kim”

Good job President Trump. Sometimes the Art of the No Deal is just as important.

Violent Righty: know that the FBI is monitoring your online presence

A grand jury returned a three-count indictment charging Christopher Hasson in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland with unlawful possession of unregistered firearm silencers, unlawful possession of unregistered firearm silencers unidentified by serial numbers, and possession of firearms by an unlawful user and addict of a controlled substance. Prosecutors allege in court filings that Hasson was planning a domestic terrorist attack targeting media outlets and Democratic politicians.

Several of his internet searches suggested that Hasson intended to target some of the “most liberal senators,” as well as “supreme court justices” and “joe scarborough.” Hasson also allegedly composed a spreadsheet on January 17 of this year with a detailed collection of targets identified as “traitors” which the government describes as “prominent Democratic Congressional leaders, activists, political organizations, and MSNBC and CNN media personalities.”

Those targets included: Chris Hayes, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Tim Kaine, Ari Melber, Don Lemon, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Chris Cuomo, Angela Davis, Van Jones, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez–as well as two unclear entries which the government reportedly presumes to be referencing John Podesta and the Democratic Socialists of America.

Another Arrested Republican

Pretty soon they are going to have to build a prison just for registered Republicans.

(Reuters) – The North Carolina Republican political operative at the center of an absentee ballot fraud scheme that prompted the state to order a re-run of a congressional election was arrested and charged with obstruction of justice on Wednesday, local media reported.

The operative, Leslie McCrae Dowless, was charged by the Wake County District Attorney’s office, and WSOC-9 reported, citing a statement from that office. Officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The state’s elections board last week described the election as an “absolute mess,” pronounced its results tainted by the scheme and ordered a new election for the seat representing the state’s 9th District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Republican candidate who initially appeared to have won that race, Mark Harris, said he would not make a second run for the seat. Dan McCready, the Democrat who ran against Harris, does plan to run again.

Dowless has previously denied wrongdoing. A person who answered the phone at the office of his attorney, Cynthia Singletary, said Singletary was not available to comment on Wednesday.
