The disaster that is Lori Loughlin’s life as of late continues to unfold like a slow-motion train wreck with the latest news being that she and her husband face new and additional charges around the college admissions scandal that they’ve been embroiled in since earlier this year.
Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were arrested this past March as they were caught in the dragnet set by federal investigators as part of “Operation Varsity Blues”, exposing at least fifty-one people who conspired to facilitate entrances into some of the nation’s top universities by inflating their childrens’ college admissions test scores and faking membership in certain athletic groups – such as crew in the case of Lori and Mossimo ‘s daughters.
Why it’s not already enough to be wealthy and able to send your children to whatever decent school will accept them (Lori and Mossimo have an estimated net worth of around $90 million) is anyone’s guess. Why the feds so voraciously went after this particular crime would take another wild guess considering that there must certainly be bigger fish to fry out there than wealthy families paying exorbitant sums of money to cheat their childrens’ way into colleges.
The most bizarre aspect of this federal operation – which also entangled Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman – is that whilst other defendants (such as Huffman) took responsibility and plead to the charge as would be expected from any normal human being, Loughlin and Mossimo plead not guilty… Not only that, but whenever Loughlin first showed up to court she appeared as if she was there for a promotion of one of her movies – to the extent of even posing for pictures with fans and signing autographs. Walking around with a joker smile in Boston as you appear in court to answer to a federal indictment just doesn’t seem like sane behavior. Pleading not guilty to federal charges whilst everyone else involved is pleading guilty seems somewhat ill-advised as well since the feds don’t play around with things like state prosecutors might.
What Lori apparently did not know about our federal court system is that the prosecutors don’t play anything but hard ball. This isn’t state court where things are plead down and significant deals are cut for pleading guilty… In federal court, the prosecutors EXPECT you to plead guilty and not waste their time with a trial, so they can move on to the next case and continue upping their conviction rates. A lot of these prosecutors are looking for a career in politics later or a federal judgeship. Federal prosecutors are usually very intelligent and ambitious individuals that are NOT trying to be made a fool out of by Aunt Becky.
In federal court if you don’t plead guilty to the charges at hand, the prosecutors will seek the absolute maximum penalties allowed by federal law which is usually up to twenty years per federal felony and another twenty for each additional count. This is a pretty stiff threat for someone charged with even just one count of one felony, and the potential years start to stack up very quickly as the feds seek convictions on multiple charges and counts. Someone with just two counts on one charge is looking at forty years! Forty is an amazing potential possibility for someone who might plead guilty to the same set of charges and only get probation. The feds want guilty pleas, and they make it very painful if they don’t get them.
Reality didn’t apparently start to set in for Lori until she and Mossimo were hit with additional charges in late October. This is all part of the federal game, continuing to stack the deck against defendants and pressuring them with the potential of spending the rest of their lives in federal prison – which again, is nothing like its state counterpart. In the federal system you can expect to do a clean (and astonishing) eighty-seven percent of your sentence whereas with state convictions usually inmates serve much lower percentages such as fifty percent or even less in a lot of cases.
What’s obvious is that Lori is no longer looking as chipper and smiley as she was once was now that she is starting to realize the depth levels of the shit that she and her husband are currently in. What’s not obvious? How she continues to plead not guilty including with regards to the new charges…Aunt Becky must still be living in Full House.
A great special from National Geographic on the epic Staffordshire Hoard discovered in 2009
An excellent documentary on the real-life inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s novel Robinson Crusoe…
The levels of sheer absurdity when it comes to the growing desire to not enforce immigration laws in this country have now reached all-out epic proportions. In New York City it is now a fineable offence – to the tune of $250,000 – to call someone an “illegal alien” (regardless of if they in fact are or not).
Also on the list of new offenses are discriminating based on someone’s English proficiency OR even threatening to call immigration authorities “based on someone’s actual or perceived alienage, [or] citizenship status, [or] national origin”. This means that the person CAN IN FACT BE an illegal alien, but it is still an offense to call them one OR tell them you are calling INS.
Absolutely amazing. So basically, not only do SO many Democrats in this country WANT illegal aliens here in the U.S. (to increase their voter base when those illegals later have citizen children), but now you can’t even call an illegal out for being one OR tell them you are calling INS without risking a $250k fine!? I suppose the work-around is to just not say anything to them and simply call INS and wait for the problem to get fixed, but the fact that American CITIZENS in this country can’t even SAY to an illegal immigrant that they are indeed an illegal immigrant is utterly ridiculous and astonishing, not to mention stupid. Dems are systematically stripping U.S. citizens of their rights and transferring those rights over to anybody in the world that wants to break the law and come to the U.S. illegally. Just what in the HELL is going on in this nation?
A couple of examples cited as violations of the new guidelines are:
- A hotel prohibiting its housekeepers from speaking another language because it would “offend” guests.
- A store owner telling two people speaking Thai to “speak English” or “go back to your country.”
The first question that comes to mind is regarding the hotel company that is now obliged to pay someone to work for them… but the company can’t require them to speak in the official language of this country while on the clock? Companies can enforce drug policies and firearms restrictions on citizens that clearly violate their rights but OH NO, they absolutely cannot require that their employees speak English. Absolutely astonishing.
The second question I would ask is how friendly do you think English speaking Americans would be treated if they were say…in Iran openly speaking English? Not only would they be told to stfu, they’d be thrown in jail just for being American, yet these latest rules suggest an American here in the U.S. couldn’t even request for an Iranian to speak English. Instead, we must let them continue to speak Farsi while plotting their next bombing and if we insist they speak English so we can know what they’re saying, WE get a $250k fine! Just what in the absolute HELL is going on in the United States of America to where one of our most prominent cities is bending over backwards to persecute American citizens while opening the door to any law breaking border jumper that can somehow make it to our country? If this isn’t an indicator of the downfall of civilization as we know it, I certainly don’t know what is.
It’s increasingly humorous to watch Hillary Rodham Clinton continue to try and hold onto the slim thread of a possibility of maybe taking another shot at the Presidency whilst also pretending that she can represent women in America today or even the rest of the Democrats for that matter.
While I initially gave Hillary some credit for taking the election loss fairly well and honorably back in 2016, that melted away soon after she joined the rest of the entire Democratic party with their petty, dirty, immature, and constant (failing) attacks against our sitting U.S. President Donald Trump. It’s a wonder the dems have had any time to do anything else but look for ways to tear down The Donald considering how much relentless effort they’ve put into it (oh wait…they DON’T do anything else but that).
At first it looked like Hillary was just what the slippery slope of American politics wanted for the next U.S. President. What could be better after the first African-American but for the first woman President of America? The problem however was… she lost the election – whether that be by electoral college votes or not – and failed at achieving victory for the dems. This is somewhat of a problem for Hillary Rodham. How could the dems ever choose her to represent them for the 2020 run when her record of victory at this is absolutely nil?
The even larger problem with Hillary Rodham is that she simply doesn’t fit with the agenda of what modern American women want to push in this day and age. As women are publicly standing up for their rights in this nation and refusing to let men continue to run over them, Hillary represents the exact opposite of that spirit when she has repeatedly stayed with Bill over DECADES of infidelity in the form of various affairs and sometimes even worse allegations. Oh, then there was that time he got IMPEACHED in front of the entire world for one certain incident involving Monica Lewinsky. How crazy do things have to get before Hillary is going to leave his ass? The answer is, absolutely no level of Bill being a hound dawg was EVER going to result in Hillary standing up for herself because she’s a slimy politician who would do anything to continue to stand by Bill’s side and rise up politically with him so she could eventually take a run at the Presidency herself. For Hillary to have left Bill at any point during his ascension to – or serving as – the President would’ve been the end of Hillary’s slimy political career.
The best and most humorous parts of all of this are her latest comments claiming that her staying with cheater Bill the was “gutsiest” thing she’d ever done in her personal life. First, this isn’t your personal life – it’s your political career – but regardless….Hillary….honey…letting Bill run all over you repeatedly in front of everyone and doing absolutely nothing about it is NOT CALLED “GUTSY”. You can attempt to re-purpose words to inside the imagination of your own mind make you look better to yourself but the rest of us live in reality.
In this thing called reality in 2020, women aren’t buying your bullshit anymore. Modern American women know that you can’t represent them at this point because not only can you not win an election, but you utterly EMBODY the old-school strategy of staying with your man and enduring whatever humiliation that comes along with that regardless of anything else. Hillary… what you’ve done is not “gutsy”, it’s about the exact opposite – it’s “SLIMY”, and it represents the slimy politician that you are, and is the single biggest reason (along with being 71) that there is no possible way for you to represent young modern women in America. You have in fact hurt the cause of American women by contributing to the thought that men can get away with whatever they want – you in fact, are modern American women’s worst enemy.
Hillary Rodham Clinton…in the event that you advise the Biden campaign into the dirt and pull a surprise slimy entry into the 2020 race…inside of that crazy mind of yours, what do you really feel your chances are with young American voters?
This song may sound familiar if you’ve seen the film ‘Primal Fear’ where it’s heavily featured throughout…
As an update to this year’s earlier post A thief in the night… former DPD officer Amber Guyger has now been convicted of murder and sentenced to ten years in prison for the 2018 shooting of Botham Jean.
For those who don’t recall the details around this shooting, Officer Guyger entered Jean’s own apartment and fatally shot him. It seems that single statement is the only thing jurors and the judge cared about or even wanted to think about when convicting this woman, and no one wanted to think logically or hear anything about the circumstances that obviously explain this unfortunate event as an accident – and therefore what should’ve been a manslaughter conviction NOT a murder conviction.
The series of events are as follows:
- Guyger mistakenly parked on a different floor than usual of her apartment complex’s garage
- She got to what she thought was her apartment door and found it unlocked and slightly ajar which was noticed as she attempted to put her key in, which instead pushed the door open
- The apartment was darkly lit and she heard someone inside
- She pulled out her service weapon and issued verbal commands to what she thought was an intruder in her own apartment
- Jean, being black, and inside of his own apartment, did not follow any commands, and instead rushed toward Guyger yelling “Hey! Hey! Hey!”
- Guyger shot Jean in the chest, only afterwards realizing that she was in fact NOT in her own apartment facing an intruder, but that she was the intruder in Jean’s apartment
First, it’s an honest mistake to accidentally either open or attempt to open the door of someone else’s apartment in modern complexes with attached garages. As stated in this year’s earlier post, this has happened to me before, and I’ve also had keys get inserted into my apartment door numerous times over the years by other residents thinking they were at their own doors. This happens. It is fact.
Most modern complexes have the same exact interior/exterior styling for the hallways on all floors, with only the numbers on the doors indicating the difference. MOST people don’t always look at that number on the door as they are entering their apartment. Most people walk the same route every day and feel their way to the door, but when you park on a different garage floor and aren’t thinking about it, you CAN arrive at the wrong apartment door. This is exactly what happened to me one day a few years back. Again, it happens. This is fact. It happens a LOT actually.
This happened to Amber Guyger as well, but since the door was unlocked she was able to walk in and have the mistaken feeling that not only was she inside of her own apartment, but that there was an intruder there as well (this could all have been avoided had the door been locked btw). Due to the current political climate in this country, and the fact that she is white and Botham Jean was black…. not only was the charge escalated from manslaughter to murder when he was killed, she was convicted of murder resulting in African-Americans and their social justice warriors damn near dancing in the streets since they effectively got what they feel is some revenge for the various police-on-black shootings that have occurred over the decades. In this case, the jury consisted mostly of people of color and the judge was also African-American. After the conviction and sentencing one juror stated “all 12 of us said she was guilty probably within five minutes of being in there”. Guyger never had a chance.
With African-Americans in 2019 this is about settling a score that blacks in this country feel has been stacked against them. Never mind the fact that frequently (not all of the time, but frequently) blacks are shot by police because of a failure to follow simple instructions during a high stress situation – in fact, blacks nearly always want to escalate those situations due to the feeling of “being persecuted” that they carry around with them from birth to death due to American culture drilling it into their heads all of their lives. In fact….THIS event could possibly ALSO have been prevented had Jean just followed instructions when having a gun pointed at him, instead of playing the usual black guy and getting over-the-top offended for being hassled inside of his own home. I mean, how DARE this white woman come into my apartment and tell ME what to do!
Well…he’s dead now because of that aggression that he let loose instead of following the instructions which would’ve ended up eventually in him communicating to her that he was in his own apartment and her embarrassingly de-escalating the situation and leaving – with both people still alive. Jean probably could’ve gotten a nice settlement out of the deal from the DPD as well, but instead…he played the aggressive black man with the startled white woman cop and lost his life, and got her put into jail for ten years. Great job Jean!
After all of these types of incidents, it makes one wonder, why African-Americans can’t just learn to be like the rest of the nation? For most of us, if an officer busts into our house with a gun drawn, guess what we’ll do? We’ll FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS and sort the dumb shit out LATER. Not black men….they have to right the wrong directly there on the spot, except that it never EVER actually happens that way – not ever! They either end up losing their lives over the matter or getting arrested and facing resisting arrest charges if not more. When will African-Americans finally learn? Probably never, because apparently black culture would like to rack up as many points on their “we’re the victims” score that they can in order to facilitate their continuous crying about not being successful while at the same time committing more crimes per person than any other racial group in the United States.
What is especially disgusting are the online comments around this whole thing. It’s like we have an angry mob out for blood over this event, with staggering numbers of people apparently either not knowing what the difference between a MANSLAUGHTER charge is as compared to a murder charge, or just not caring because they want revenge on white people.
It’s plainly and blatantly obvious that Guyger would never have orchestrated this entire episode just to pre-meditatively kill Jean. The idea and concept is just preposterous and the prosecution failed to show any reason for her to harbor malice against him – they didn’t even KNOW each other. So HOW IN THE HELL was this woman convicted of murder instead of manslaughter as the accidental nature of it all warranted?
Today…in 2019…this is no longer about the actual laws. This is no longer about the true definitions and differences between charges. Today this is about the racial revenge that African-Americans will seek against Caucasians in this country UNTIL THE END OF TIME. It will never stop. It will never abate. This will persist forever, and blacks will never be able to live in this country peacefully with the rest of us. African-Americans will continue to commit staggering numbers of violent crimes, their fathers will continue to abandon their children, and blacks will continue cry, piss, and moan about being “victims” of “the system”. If ANY situation occurs like what Guyger experienced, the white person is DONE FOR. The politics of today demand that a manslaughter charge be raised to murder for no reason, and that a conviction of the evil white person must happen regardless of if it flies in the face of all logic on this earth and everything holy in the universe.
This all begs the question, if THIS event didn’t warrant a manslaughter charge, then WHAT DOES? Because apparently a premeditated or “crime of passion” murder equals murder….AND an accidental killing…equals murder? There effectively is now NO way to get a manslaughter charge anymore after this precedent – manslaughter no longer exists apparently – unless it were a black accidentally killing a white person right? THAT would be an “accident“….
Welcome to 2019 where your manslaughter charge now equals murder….IF you are white!
