Five justices sit on the state Supreme Court in West Virginia. One of the judges, Menis Ketchum, retired a few weeks ago and will plead guilty to federal corruption charges while the remaining four judges have had articles of impeachment drafted against them. Judge Allen Loughry has been indicted in federal court for fraud, witness tampering, and making false statements to investigators. The remaining three justices face impeachment for wasting government resources and failing to effectively administer the state courts. GOP Governor Jim Justice will appoint new justices if any of the court’s current members are impeached, and he has been accused of orchestrating the impeachment slowly so that he can stack the court with Republicans.

The remaining three justices — Workman, Davis, and Walker — face impeachment for wasting government resources and failing to effectively administer the state courts. All three spent large sums of taxpayer dollars on lavish improvements to their chambers in the state capital, which cumulatively totaled almost $750,000, and allegedly abused state travel resources. Workman and Davis also allegedly authorized compensation for other state judges in excess of the amounts allowed by West Virginia law.

According to a poll recorded in 2016, a stunning 67% of Republican voters thought mass immigration was a critical threat, but only 16% of GOP leaders agreed that it was a serious problem.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
