U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga has ordered the immediate release of former army intelligence analyst and whistleblower Chelsea Manning from prison.

In the Release Order Judge Trenga wrote, “The court find that Ms. Manning’s appearance before the grand jury is no longer needed, in light of which her detention no longer serves any coercive purposes”

Though the judge also ruled she is still responsible to pay $256,000.000 in fines.

Manning was originally jailed over a year ago for contempt of court after refusing to testify about her relationship with Wikileaks and its founder Julian Assange, but was released for a short time after the grand jury expired. Prosecutors then obtained a second subpoena, and she was locked up a second time in May for defying it.

Upon her release, Ms. Manning’s lawyer Moira Meltzer-Cohen gave this statement, “It is my devout hope that she is released to us shortly, and that she is finally given a meaningful opportunity to rest and heal that she so richly deserves.”

In early 2010, Ms. Manning, who was then known as PFC Bradley Manning, provided a cache of  classified information to Wikileaks and in 2013 she was charged  with and found guilty of Violating the Espionage Act, stealing government property,  violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and multiple accounts. She was sentenced to thirty five years at the maximum- security barracks at Fort Leavenworth.

On January 17th, 2017 President Obama communted Manning’s sentence to nearly seven years dating from her arrest on May 27th, 2010.

Manning is seen as a hero across the political spectrum by those who oppose war, government overreach, and the secrecy of those who run the military industrial complex.

Published

Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.

The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.

“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.

The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”

“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”

In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.

The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.

The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
