Presidential Pardon Designed Precisely For U.S. Green Beret Golsteyn Case

by Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D. All too predictably, The New York Times is hyperbolically criticizing President Donald Trump for saying that he would review the case of Major Mathew L. Golsteyn, a Green Beret accused of killing an Afghan man in 2010.

For Kagan, Only The Illusion Of Impartiality Is Important

By Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D. Let’s be clear. The Supreme Court is no more impartial or neutral a body than Congress itself.
