"Your love of liberty, your respect for the laws, your habits of industry, and your practice of the moral and religious obligations, are the strongest claims to national and individual happiness." -- George Washington (1789)

In a stunning move, former President Donald Trump’s confidential documents case was tossed out by a federal judge in Florida on Monday — eliminating one of his biggest legal liabilities just 113 days before the Nov. 5 election.

Judge Aileen Cannon dismissed the case against the Republican presidential candidate, which was widely viewed as the most serious of four criminal cases he faces, on the grounds that the appointment of special counsel Jack Smith to the case violated the Constitution.

“I am thrilled that a judge had the courage and wisdom to do this. This has big, big implications not just for this case but for other cases,” Trump told Fox News in an interview moments after the ruling.

“The special counsel worked with everybody to try to take me down. This is a big, big deal. It only makes the convention more positive — this will be an amazing week.”

Trump, 78, faced up to 450 years in prison if convicted on all counts in the case.

Business Insider reported that NATO had never faced an adversary of Russia’s calibre after World War II, and it would have been difficult for the alliance to establish air superiority over Russian forces. The warning comes as experts have explained the sombre reality that the F-16 fighter jets, a key aircraft in many NATO air force fleets, provided to Kiev will not be a “magic bullet” that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his Western allies expect them to be.

“Russia could challenge NATO’s historical air dominance,” reported the media on July 13 after explaining that this is a change from the scenario that emerged after the Cold War when the West had a clear advantage. “Russia would be a very different opponent. It has the territory and industry to build and field massive and sophisticated air defenses that an opponent may struggle to destroy.”

“The US and its allies, even with fleets of fifth-generation stealth fighter jets, likely would find it difficult to establish the same level of air dominance they’ve largely had since the end of World War II,” the New York-based outlet said.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, an appointee of Trump, is a major victory for the former president, who faced dozens of felony charges accusing him of mishandling classified documents and hampering the federal government's efforts to retrieve them. Trump pleaded not guilty and denied any wrongdoing.

The federal judge overseeing the case alleging former President Donald Trump mishandled sensitive government documents after leaving the White House has dismissed the charges against him and his two codefendants. 

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon said in a 93-page order that she has granted Trump's bid to dismiss the indictment based on the unlawful funding and appointment of special counsel Jack Smith, who brought the charges against the former president.

The former president faced 40 charges stemming from his handling of documents marked classified after leaving office and allegedly obstructing the Justice Department's investigation.

The dismissal of the case caps a stunning weekend for the former president, who was the target of an assassination attempt during a rally in Butler County, Pennsylvania. Trump said a bullet grazed his ear while he was addressing the crowd of his supporters. The gunman, identified by the FBI as 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks, was killed by Secret Service.

The fact that former President Donald Trump suffered a gunshot wound at the hands of a would-be assassin prompted a Forbes contributor to speculate whether that would make the presumptive 2024 Republican nominee more appealing to black voters.

Forbes scrambled to delete the opinion article titled, Will Surviving Gunfire Be Donald Trump’s Next Appeal To Black Voters?, which was written by Shaun Harper, a professor at USC’s Rossier School of Education, who bills himself as a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) “expert.”

Ben Shapiro berated the mainstream media for its divisive political rhetoric that he said may have led to someone taking their accusations seriously that former President Donald Trump is evil.

“The actual story here is an entire political party — an entire political side of the aisle — geared around the idea that Donald Trump is a grave existential threat to democracy and then someone took that seriously, presumably, and tried to shoot the former president of the United States,” Shapiro said during a special episode of the Ben Shapiro Show on Sunday.

Shapiro called the attempted assassination “shocking but not surprising” and “one of the most predictable things to happen in American public life in my lifetime.”

“His political opponents have defined him as ‘literally Hitler’ and when you keep saying your political opposition is ‘literally Hitler, who is going to take America into a new dark age.’ When you say that over and over and over again, you are turning up the temperature,” Shapiro said.

Former President Donald Trump has changed the theme of the Republican National Convention after a 20-year-old who donated to far-Left causes shot him on Saturday during an assassination attempt at a campaign event in Pennsylvania.

Trump landed in Milwaukee on Sunday evening ahead of the convention’s start on Monday as political tensions in the U.S. have increased in the wake of Saturday’s tragedy in which at least one Trump supporter was killed and two more were critically injured.

Trump, who sets the tone for the convention, told the Washington Examiner that he initially planned on hammering President Joe Biden throughout his speech.

“Honestly, it’s going to be a whole different speech now,” he said.

Less than 24 hours after a failed assassination attempt against former President Donald Trump — which left one bystander dead and three others, including Trump, injured — The Atlantic’s David Frum blamed the violence on the former president and his supporters.

“The Gunman and the Would-Be Dictator,” blared the headline, and on the off-chance anyone missed the intended tone of the piece, a subhead followed: “Violence stalks the president who has rejoiced in violence to others.”

Frum’s premise was that Trump was a fascist and because “fascism feasts on violence,” the former president was simply getting a taste of that which he had fostered.
