    The verdict that sent Malaysia’s untouchable ex-PM to prison.

    Earlier this week, inside the huge, Islamically-styled Palace of Justice in Malaysia’s political capital Putrajaya, something remarkable happened.

    In the dock stood a man of immense wealth and power, who, when he was prime minister, was quite literally untouchable.

    Dato’ Sri Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak – to give him his full title which denotes the high status he holds in Malaysian society – had challenged the judiciary for two years since his conviction and 12-year prison sentence over money laundering and abuses of power charges.

    Just the night before his lawyers had filed a motion to disqualify Malaysia’s most senior judge, and the country’s first female chief justice, from hearing his final appeal.

    Outside the court, Najib’s supporters gathered, protesting that he was not getting justice. Despite the 42 criminal charges filed against him, he remains popular and influential.

    Chief Justice Tun Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat was unmoved.

    She ordered Najib’s lawyers to get on with any submissions they wanted to make. Then, after a break for lunch, flanked by the four other judges on the five-member panel, she read out the 15-page verdict.

    She found Najib’s conviction and sentence sound and not excessive, and the complaints raised in his appeal to be devoid of merit.

    “We agree that the defence is so inherently inconsistent and incredible that it does not raise a reasonable doubt on the prosecution’s case,” she said.

    Najib fell back in his chair, looking stunned. Within a few hours, a man accustomed to celebrity treatment found himself in a plain prison cell.

    eerily similar, isn’t it? except for the last sentence, of course.

    “The judiciary is the last bastion for defending the rule of law, in a democratic country that has a separation of powers”, says Ms Cheah.

    “They are the checks and balances in the system. Where the executive and the legislature have gone down the wrong path, the judiciary must be independent enough to correct that. With a strong and independent judiciary, as displayed in Malaysia in this case, there is plenty of hope for true democracy to flourish in our country.”

    Donald Trump Jr. Posts Bizarre Picture Redacting His Dad’s Penis

    Things are not going well in the land of Trump as Donald Trump Jr. reacted to the release of the redacted affidavit by redacting his father’s privates.

    “The suspicion is that the Trump family will someday make for a fascinating case study in abusive and dysfunctional family dynamics.

    The Trump family is in a situation where they don’t have the power.
    The Trumps can’t effectively message against the Justice Department. Without Donald Trump in the Oval Office, they don’t have the large platform necessary to push back on investigations…

    The Trump machine was once feared, but it is now Donald Trump Jr. and a meme maker showcasing his daddy issues for the world to see.”

    Ashes of Nichelle Nichols Are Set for Journey to Deep Space
    The ashes of Ms. Nichols, who played Lieutenant Uhura on “Star Trek,” will be on a Vulcan rocket to be launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla., later this year.

    By Amanda Holpuch

    “The ashes of Nichelle Nichols, who played Lieutenant Uhura in the original “Star Trek” television series and died in July, will be launched into space later this year.

    Celestis, a private spaceflight company that works with NASA, will carry her ashes on a rocket set to travel between 150 million and 300 million kilometers into space beyond the Earth-moon system and the James Webb telescope.

    Ms. Nichols, one of the first Black women to have a leading role on a network television series, died at age 89 from heart failure.
    As Lieutenant Uhura, the communications officer on the starship U.S.S. Enterprise, Ms. Nichols was not only a pioneering actor, but she was also credited with inspiring women and people of color to join NASA.”

    “After Ms. Nichols appeared on the original “Star Trek” series, which aired from 1966 to 1969, she began a decades-long association with NASA.”

    ALTHEA GIBSON.

    Before Serena, There Was Althea
    Althea Gibson was the first Black player to win Wimbledon. Soon, the block in Harlem where she grew up will bear her name.

    By Sally H. Jacobs

    On a sweltering day in the summer of 1957, a slender young woman from Harlem became the first Black player to win the hallowed Wimbledon tennis tournament in England. After receiving the Venus Rosewater Dish from Queen Elizabeth II, Althea Gibson, 29, attended the Wimbledon Ball that evening, spinning around the dance floor in the arms of the Duke of Devonshire.

    The celebration continued in Manhattan, where Ms. Gibson was feted with the first ticker-tape parade up Broadway to honor a woman of color.

    Why Trump World is suddenly focused anew on the Russia scandal
    Donald Trump and his allies still want Americans to believe the Russia scandal wasn’t real. Reality proves otherwise.

    by Steve Benen

    “But for everyone else, now seems like a good time to review five core truths about the Russia scandal.

    Russia attacked the American elections in 2016

    Every U.S. intelligence agency and lawmakers from both parties have long agreed that the Kremlin launched an expansive and expensive covert military intelligence operation that targeted the U.S. political system in 2016. This basic fact is no longer contested — except by Trump, who publicly declared that he found Vladimir Putin more reliable than his own administration’s officials — and its importance is too often overlooked.

    Russia’s goal was to put Trump in power

    The Kremlin’s operation was not politically neutral: Moscow attacked our elections in the hopes of helping dictate the outcome. According to the findings of U.S. intelligence agencies, the Mueller investigation, and the multi-step investigation from the GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee, Russia saw Trump as a prospective ally and believed it would be in its interests if the Republican were in the White House.

    Russia and Team Trump were political allies

    As regular readers know, investigations from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team and the GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee documented the extent to which Trump and his team welcomed, received, and benefited from Russian campaign assistance. (They also obstructed the investigation into this assistance — by some measures, 10 times.)

    The evidence also showed there was coordination and high-level connections between Trump’s political operation and those responsible for the attack on our elections. The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report at one point literally described a “direct tie between senior Trump Campaign officials and the Russian intelligence services.”

    Team Trump lied about its communications with Russia

    No, really, Team Trump lied about its communications with Russia. A lot. Out loud and on record. Over and over again, Trump and his spokespersons insisted there were absolutely no interactions between the Republican, his political operation, and their Russian benefactors. We now know definitively that they were lying — though they still haven’t been forthcoming about why.

    The Russia scandal led to a series of felony convictions and prison sentences

    For an alleged “hoax,” the Russia scandal led to an amazing number of federal prosecutions. In fact, the investigation — the one Lowry derided as “a national fiasco” — led to the convictions of, among others, Trump’s White House national security advisor, campaign chairman, deputy campaign chairman, foreign policy advisor, personal lawyer, and 13 Russian nationals who interfered in our elections as part of the larger plot.”
