SICK: Judge Who Struck Down Doug Ford’s Bill 5 Is Same Judge Who Ruled Against Widow Who Wanted To Freeze Omar Khadr’s $10.5 Million Trudeau Payday

This shows how deeply the far-left mindset has come to dominate the corrupt system. When we’ve reached the point where a judge sides with Omar Khadr, yet goes against the duly-elected provincial government, we know that the system is deeply sick, upside-down, and broken.


TAXPAYERS SCREWED: ‘Drunk Judge’ Shows Up 1 Of 214 Workdays, Gets Pay Raise. Defends It In Video Rant, Calls Media ‘Racist’

In the words of the imitable Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation, “It’s never too early to learn that the government is a greedy piglet that suckles on a taxpayer’s teat until they have sore, chapped nipples.”

Clearly exemplifying the spirit of this truth is Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio, often dubbed “drunk judge” by local media and Rochesterians. Ms. Astacio, effective April 1, received a state taxpayer-funded pay raise of $11,000 — bringing her salary to a whopping $187,200 — after she worked only one of 214 days.

…By letter, Chief Administrative Judge Craig Doran ordered the judge back to the bench on February 26; Doran confirmed Monday that Astacio is still continuing to blow off work.

Voicing her frustration with the “negative” and “racist” news coverage of her apparently appropriate raise on Facebook Live, Astacio said she did not report to work because she had a “medical excuse” and has reportedly provided Doran with a doctor’s note. Ms. Astacio whined about a potential “HIPAA violation” for such a disclosure.

In August of 2016, Astacio was convicted of DWI and later found guilty of violating her probation on at least two occasions. In June, from behind bars, Astacio was raking in her then-$175,500 annual taxpayer-funded salary.

According to Astacio, the raise was deserved and the media are “biased” in their reporting on her because they are “racist.”

…Astacio’s term doesn’t expire until 2024.

There’s a super-terrific Facebook rant she made at the link.


Teacher Who Admitted to Having a Relationship With a Student Is Set Free

We need to elect our judges:

An Ontario private school teacher walked out of court a free woman after pleading guilty to relentlessly pursuing a 17-year-old student and pressuring her into a same-sex relationship.

According to an agreed statement of facts, Leslie Barton, 54, of Peterborough, Ont., a popular teacher and a married mother of a young child, began her pursuit during a school trip in 2010.

She wrote several love letters to the teenager and massaged her shoulders. That escalated to a stolen kiss by the end of the trip.

“After the trip, Leslie Barton’s sexual advances increased in frequency and aggressiveness,” the court document says.

She’d e-mail the girl to meet at certain places in the school, where they would be alone. The kissing and sexual contact escalated during the meetings.

To Barton, graduation day only meant the girl would be available for sex.

Barton told the girl “she always wanted to do more with her but she wanted to wait until (she) was 18 years old … Barton wanted to show the victim how to be a ‘good lover.'”

Eventually, the girl’s mental health began to crack. She underwent counselling and finally confronted Barton — “who apologized to her for the situation and took responsibility” — then went to police.

During sentencing, Judge R.W. Beninger noted Barton had jeopardized her marriage, lost her job, her reputation and her ability to volunteer in the community.

“No jail sentence can fix the wrong that was done (to the victim),” the judge said in sentencing Barton to 10 days, which she’d already served awaiting the hearing.



Judge opens Canada’s borders to onslaught of bogus refugees

Court strikes down Ottawa’s ‘safe country’ list for refugees

In a major blow to the Harper government, the Federal Court has struck down its so-called safe country list for refugees as unconstitutional.

In a ruling Thursday, the court said Ottawa’s designation by country of origin or DCO discriminates against asylum seekers who come from countries on this list by denying them access to appeals.

“The distinction drawn between the procedural advantage now accorded to non-DCO refugee claimants and the disadvantage suffered by DCO refugee claimants . . . is discriminatory on its face,” wrote Justice Keith M. Boswell in a 118-page decision.

“It also serves to further marginalize, prejudice, and stereotype refugee claimants from DCO countries which are generally considered safe and ‘non-refugee producing.’


Just yesterday Denmark uncovered a document used by invader smugglers that helps the invaders to compare welfare rates when selecting a country to claim asylum.


UK: Foreign criminal convicted of child cruelty wins ‘family life’ case

A foreign criminal convicted of child cruelty and drink-driving with his four-year-old daughter in the car has overturned a Home Office bid to deport him – because of his “right to family life”.

The extraordinary case hinged on the offender who is in his 30’s relationship with his child, even though she was the victim of his crimes.

The man, who was granted anonymity by immigration judges and can only be identified by the initials “VADSM”, is a former professional footballer, and was born in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa.

The Home Office argued it was “irrational” for VADSM to claim he should be allowed to remain in Britain because of his relationship with the child, known only as “M”.

But judges over-ruled an order by Theresa May, the Home Secretary, to deport the footballer and he is now free to stay in Britain indefinitely…


Somali rapist can stay in Britain on human rights grounds

A Somali rapist who poses a “high risk” to children and adults in Britain has overturned a bid to deport him because he could face ill-treatment if returned to his homeland.

The 31-year-old sex offender served a five year sentence for two counts of rape and was ordered to sign the sex offenders register for the rest of his life.

But an immigration court has allowed him to stay in Britain indefinitely because he could face torture or inhuman and degrading treatment if deported, possibly by the Islamist group al-Shabaab, in breach of Labour’s Human Rights Act.

The rapist was granted anonymity by the immigration court and can only be identified by the initials AAS, even though his name was public at the time of his criminal trial.

The Home Office believes AAS presents a “high risk of harm to children and adults in the community” following the 2008 rapes…


Convicted criminal Libyan can stay in Britain because he is an alcoholic

In what is believed to be the first case of its kind, the Libyan man successfully argued that he would face physical punishment and imprisonment in his homeland, where alcohol consumption is illegal.

It means the 53-year-old will be free to continue his alcohol-fuelled crime wave in Britain because the punishment he would face in Libya would be too severe, and because he has a “right to family life” in this country…


Taliban bodyguard wins human rights claim to stay in Britain

A Taliban henchman who was accused of murder in Afghanistan has been allowed to stay in Britain on human rights grounds.

The 32-year-old Afghan, known only by the initials SAKA after his name was kept secret by the courts, claimed he spent four years in jail in Kandahar after being accused of killing a provincial governor’s son.

He escaped from jail and went into hiding, but eventually fled the country and made his way to Britain.

He claimed asylum but his case was rejected by Theresa May, the Home Secretary.

Now the immigration courts have overturned her decision and allowed SAKA to stay in this country – potentially indefinitely – because he was entitled to asylum and protection under the European Convention on Human Rights…


EU court says Hamas should be removed from terror list

(Reuters) – The Palestinian Islamist group Hamas should be removed from the European Union’s terrorist list, an EU court ruled on Wednesday, saying the decision to include it was based on media reports not considered analysis.

However, in its ruling, the bloc’s second highest tribunal said member states could maintain their freeze on Hamas’s assets for three months to give time for further review or for an appeal to be launched.

The EU’s foreign policy arm said the bloc continued to view Hamas as a terrorist group. “This was a legal ruling of the court based on procedural grounds. We will look into this and decide on appropriate remedial action,” spokeswoman Maja Kocijanic said.

Israel, which has clashed repeatedly with Europe in recent years over Palestinian statehood ambitions, demanded Hamas remain blacklisted and said the ruling showed “staggering hypocrisy” toward a Jewish state founded after the Holocaust.

“It seems that too many in Europe, on whose soil six million Jews were slaughtered, have learned nothing. But we in Israel, we’ve learned,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. He branded Hamas “a murderous terrorist organization”…


European court: Asking asylum seekers to prove sexuality is breach of human rights

Gay and lesbian asylum seekers must not be asked to prove they are homosexual in order to stay in Britain, following a judgement by a European court yesterday.

Asking refugees detailed questions about their sexual habits in order to establish whether they are at risk of persecution at home is a breach of their fundamental human right to a private life, the European Court of Justice ruled.

In a decision that may force the Home Office to tighten up its interview rules, the court ruled that immigration officials must not accept explicit photographs or videos submitted by asylum seekers to prove their sexuality.

Home Office guidelines say that asylum officials must not request such images, but material that is volunteered is examined as part of a claim and stored.

In a ruling that may have implications on British cases, the court said an asylum seeker’s failure to answer questions about their personal circumstances was not sufficient reason to reject their credibility.

Nor was an applicant’s failure to declare his homosexuality from the start grounds to reject a claim, the judges said.

In 2013 some 283 people claimed asylum in Britain on the grounds that they were at risk overseas because they are gay or lesbian. Many cases come from African states whether homosexuality is subject to the death penalty.


‘Comedy of errors’ lets woman become Canadian citizen despite abysmal results on citizenship tests

TORONTO — A would-be Canadian who received a grade of zero out of six on her citizenship language test and four out of 20 on the test’s knowledge component was nonetheless granted a Canadian citizenship certificate.

A “series of administrative errors” put Haheen Afzal — despite her abysmal results on the tests — before a citizenship judge in Hamilton, Ont., swearing an oath to the Queen and being issued a citizenship certificate.

When the mistake was discovered, Ms. Afzal did not want to surrender her citizenship and fought to keep it.

The errant ceremony took place on Sept. 26, 2013, but the legal dispute — leading to its cancellation — was only recently resolved in the Federal Court of Canada.

Ms. Afzal failed the citizenship test twice before being awarded a citizenship certificate: the first time she scored 2/6 on language and 8/20 on knowledge. When she appeared before a citizenship judge and tried again, she scored even worse.

The citizenship judge noted in writing that Ms. Afzal failed the tests and did not qualify but mistakenly checked the “Granted” box on the decision form, court heard…
