Ghislaine Maxwell sentenced to 20 years
[NYPOST] Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 in prison Tuesday for her role in helping powerful pedophile Jeffrey Want Some Candy, Little Girl? Epstein
...A high class pimp financier who was alleged to maintain a stable of underage whores sex slaves who were paid big bucks to entertain the rich and/or famous. He is a registered sex offender and made att least 17 out-of-court settlements with former members of his stable, with some cases still ongoing. 2011 court docs reveal that 21 email addresses and phone numbers for Bill Clinton and an aide were found in Epstein's electronic black book, and that Clinton frequently flew with Epstein on his private plane between 2002 to 2005. But really, they were probably just discussing finance or politix or something. While getting massaged. Then things got serious, Jeff was tossed in the slammer in New York and then he killed himself. Really. That's what happened...
abuse maiden of tender yearss, capping off a dramatic fall from grace for the British socialite turned-convicted sex-trafficker.

US District Judge Alison Nathan said the sentence of 240 months was "sufficient and not greater than necessary," for Maxwell, who earlier addressed the court and told her victims, "I am sorry for the pain that you experienced."

"I hope my conviction and harsh incarceration brings you closure," said Maxwell, 60, wearing blue jail scrubs, her dark brown locks cut in a bob.

Maxwell’s face remained inscrutable as she learned her fate, and she left the courtroom without speaking to her siblings, who were sitting in the row behind her.

Her attorneys requested that she serve out her time at the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, the low-security women’s lockup that served as the inspiration for Netflix’s "Orange Is The New Black."

Absolutely zero sympathy. She was a poor little rich girl, and it can't be denied that she had terrifying daddy issues - but she could have walked away from this long, long ago.

#2  Well, technically, a life term.

OTOH there's the Epstein solution. Maybe they'll be more creative and arrange for a heart attack or food poisoning.

#20  Yogananda Pittman

She joined the Capitol Police in 2001. In 2012, Pittman was among the first black female supervisors to be promoted to the rank of captain in the Capitol Police. At that time, she was responsible for over 400 officers and civilian staff. The next year, she was in charge of the security planning for the second inauguration of Barack Obama.[7] During her tenure, Pittman has been assigned to the United States Senate Division and most recently served as assistant chief of police for protective and intelligence operations.[8] In 2020, Pittman received the Women in Federal Law Enforcement's Outstanding Advocate for Women award.[2]

Following the resignation of Steven Sund in 2021, Pittman became acting chief of the Capitol Police. She is the first woman and first African American to lead the Capitol Police.[2][9][10][11] On February 15, 2021 the U.S. Capitol Police Labor Committee, the union representing Capitol Police officers, voted 92% against Pittman in a vote of no confidence in her leadership.[12]em> Wikipedia

San Diego superintendent who said Asian students succeed because they're wealthy Chinese is fired
[San Diego Union-Tribune] The San Dieguito Union High School Board voted quietly Sunday to fire Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward after two and a half months of controversy surrounding comments she made linking Asian student academic performance to an influx of wealthy Chinese immigrant families.

The four-member board voted unanimously in a meeting Sunday evening to terminate James-Ward’s contract without cause effective Aug. 15. Trustee Michael Allman announced the decision after the board met in closed session for two and a half hours. None of the board members commented further on their decision before adjourning the meeting.

"The vote was unanimous and I wish Ms. Ward well," Board President Maureen "Mo" Muir said in an email Monday. "It’s time for the district to move forward again."

Trustees Allman, Katrina Young and Julie Bronstein declined to comment Monday.

James-Ward’s contract was set to expire in June 2025. Because she is being terminated without cause, her contract allows her to be paid a year’s salary as a buyout. She was being paid a $288,000 annual salary.

"Thank you to every teacher, school leader, student, parent and community member that has supported me through this ordeal," James-Ward said in a statement Tuesday.

#1  Hmm, they succeed because they study nonstop. They have no lives outside of being students. That's why they do so much better than the blacks. Black culture doesn't reward study, in fact anyone who does study is smeared as a house n-----, the same as Clarence Thomas.

#2  ....I wonder how many of these brain-dead 'superintendents' we'd lose without the pay-or-play contracts that seem to be de rigeur. For instance, at one point back in the early 90s Cleveland was paying FOUR school superintendents - they'd get hired for a guaranteed four years no matter what, and then they'd get 86d after a year or so. And like this twinkie, they get to sit around on six figures of the public dime for a few years until the next set of suckers pops up.

You get paid for no more than two years at a time.

#6  She's not wrong on the number of wealthy Chinese buying houses in north San Diego. Pardee built a series of subdivisions in Torrey Highlands with the homes starting around $1.6Mil+ . I talked to the Supt. and he said they were basically pre-selling them, sight-unseen (before building), for cash, to Chinese. That said, I think their cultural push for success is what matters, not the money.

Wisconsin governor vows to give doctors clemency if prosecuted under state abortion ban
So much easier to posture than do the hard work of changing the laws.
[Washington Examiner] Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers promised to provide clemency to doctors charged under a state law from 1849 banning most abortions.

Evers made the promise during a rally at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin convention on Saturday, a day after the Supreme Court's landmark decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Under the state's 1849 law, which was enacted over a century before Roe v. Wade and may now go back into effect, Wisconsin doctors are banned from performing abortions except when saving the life of the mother, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"I don't think that a law that was written before the Civil War, or before women secured the right to vote, should be used to dictate these intimate decisions on reproductive health," Evers said.

The refusal to accept the Supreme Court decision could eventually trigger a civil conflict.

Chevron selling Bay Area headquarters, paying for employees relocate to Houston
[KCRA] Plenty of tech companies have moved their headquarters out of the Bay Area in recent years, from startups like Coinbase to industry pioneers like Hewlett Packard and Oracle. Elon Musk has been one particularly outspoken voice decrying Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,’s business conditions. Now, one of the East Bay’s legacy companies is joining the trend.

Chevron announced it is shuttering its San Ramon global headquarters and even encouraging some employees to move to Houston, the Wall Street Journal reported. The oil company will cover relocation costs for those voluntarily leaving for the Texas office, which has been growing and employs nearly 6,000 people. Meanwhile,
...back at the abandoned silver mine, a triangular dorsal fin appeared in the water. Then another...
the San Ramon office buildings have experienced dwindling numbers in recent years.

When Chevron vacates the 100-acre campus in 2023, freeing up prime real estate for the area’s growing life-sciences industry or developers looking to build apartments, it hopes to move into a smaller space in San Ramon, which will remain its headquarters, the Wall Street Journal said.

There are deep roots in California for Chevron going back to the late 1800s. While company leadership has pushed for a permanent move to Texas in the past, the oil company’s legacy in the state coupled with the location of its Richmond refinery in the East Bay has kept the company in California, sources told the Wall Street Journal.

Chevron did not return SFGATE’s request for comment.
Meanwhile, I hear that some companies based in Texas are allowing their work-from-home employees to move out of state. The reasoning is apparently deep unhappiness with the new abortion law, post-Dobbs. It will be interesting to see how many make that move, and what that does to politics in Texas and elsewhere.

So, their termination comes by email. Who do they file their unemployment claim with? The state from which they were employed or the state they reside? Going to be a game of tag in the first place and "we have no record" in the second.

Government Corruption
January 6 hearings: Trump urged armed supporters to storm Capitol - aide
See also here.
[BBC] Donald Trump knew supporters had weapons when he urged them to storm the Capitol to overturn the 2020 election, a former White House aide has said.

Ex-aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified to the committee probing the 6 January 2021 riots that Mr Trump and his top staff knew the potential for violence.

But a planned rally went ahead, with Mr Trump saying the armed attendees were "not here to hurt me".

The president also demanded to join the march on the Capitol himself, she said.

Up until now, the congressional panel was missing testimony from inside the room - someone who could offer a first-hand account of the situation in the White House in the critical hours before and during the attack.

But at its sixth hearing on Tuesday - hastily announced with what the committee said was the revelation of new evidence - Ms Hutchinson, 25, filled in the blanks.

#3  PJ Media - Another J6 Trump 'Bombshell' Outed as a Hoax!

Any reasonable person would conclude this story was dubious. The liberal media, however, not so much. CNN gleefully described it as a bombshell, yet, like so many other Trump bombshells, it appears this incident didn’t happen at all, and is yet another hoax to add to the pile of bogus anti-Trump stories.

According to Peter Alexander, the chief White House correspondent for NBC News, sources close to the Secret Service dispute the story.

“A source close to the Secret Service tells me both Bobby Engel, the lead agent, and the presidential limousine/SUV driver are prepared to testify under oath that neither man was assaulted and that Mr. Trump never lunged for the steering wheel,” Alexander tweeted Tuesday evening.

#10  Attn: The Walking Unvaxed I do not know how many have been convicted of bringing or using weapons but more than 85 were accused of using a deadly or dangerous weapon or causing serious bodily injury to an officer. According to the Federal court records at least three dozen people who took part in the riot used or possessed some kind of weapon that day. Having said that did anyone take it into the Capital, is yet to be established. So I would say that Cassidy Hutchinson is technically correct but also misleading.

I expect to see many false, misleading and outright lies used as MSM HEADLINES
the closer we get to "The Return To Normalcy" election that the LSD's are facing in Nov.

They know America is PISSED OFF and the LSD's & Far Left MSM is working feverishly to create, start or generate a panic with anything.

QUESTION: While ANTI-FA & BLM and other Radical groups stormed and ram stacked a dozen + different State & Federal buildings over the last 4 years. How many of their Ring Leaders were arrested and hauled in front of a Congressional Committee?

Yep! only a few low level peons were arrested for a semi-emotional, reducing "they finally did something" news bite.

Any nation without the equally applied justice is NOT a representative government. It is operating to represent itself and some elites. History shows these nations soon fall into civil conflicts, then civil war.

#15  #14 ^^
Some Peaceful Solutions.
1. 10 years mandatory sentence for ANY ILLEGAL Election Related act. 25 years if conducted across state lines.

2. 20 Year Limit to elected Congressional Seats and Agency appointments.

3. Campaigns to be run using ONLY US sourced and proven donations, otherwise, see #1 for receiver and donor.

4. NO donations over $100 per election stage per person. Because it is We The People (equal say and vote) Not "We The Rich and Powerful".

5. Annual "independantly conducted" Mental Competency & Bi-annual Drug/Alcohol abuse testing of all Elected and Appointed officials.

To list a few.

#16  Dem Playbook

1. Find impressionable former employee/acquaintance
2. Encourage their bad feelings about not being employed or accepted by the person/group
3. Foster and enhance false memories (Christine Blasey Ford comes to mind) about the person/group
4. Announce a super-secret 'bombshell' to the media
5. Ignore the resulting scrutiny revealing inconsistencies and/or outright lying - encourage media to ignore also
6. Declare victory before the public is fully aware or informed - also encourage media to do so

See: State level citizen Ballot Initiative proposals.

The following 25 states have initiative and/or veto referendum processes at the statewide level:

Maryland (Veto referendum only)
New Mexico (Veto referendum only)
North Dakota
South Dakota
Plus the District of Columbia.

Use a Grass Roots way of starting a Constitutional Amendment for better control of DC. Then watch the DC Swamp offer up a slew of alternatives to appease the voters.

No Republican ballots available at Bronx polling site
Why bother? It’s not as though anyone will dare want one.
[NYPOST] A Bronx election site didn’t have Republican ballots for New York’s primary race for hours Tuesday morning as thousands headed to the polls to cast their vote for governor, The Post has learned.

One voter, Ed Gavin, 62, arrived at the polling site in Spuyten Duyvil around 8:15 a.m. to cast his vote for GOP gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino but after checking in with a poll worker, he was handed a Democrat ballot instead, he said.

"My party never came up, my political preferences were never discussed ... I opened the sleeve and I saw the names of Tom Suozzi, Kathy Hochul and Jumaane Williams. These were all Democrats for governor," Gavin, a retired Department of Correction assistant deputy warden, told The Post.

"I flipped it over because I thought maybe the Republicans were on the back but there were no Republicans."

Gavin was incredulous and went back to the poll worker to inform them he’d been given the wrong ballot.

"They told me ’we don’t have any Republican ballots,’" Gavin recalled.

"I said to the gentleman, ’that is very concerning.’"

The Post later visited the polling site and confirmed with a worker that Republican ballots were unavailable to voters earlier in the morning.

"We couldn’t find the ballots earlier but we have them now," the worker said.

"This is the most important gubernatorial election of my lifetime because crime is on the ballot, bail reform is on the ballot, criminal justice is on the ballot," said Gavin.

"[Former Gov. Andrew] Cuomo essentially ruined this state ... with the state of the city right now, we need a Republican in power."

This is only one reason why; add in mail-in voting, the usual Dem ballot stuffing, throw in Dominion voting machines, and there you have it - permanent Dem victories in NYC.

South Carolina Lawmaker in Leaked Audio Strategizes 'Sleepers,' 'Dope Money' to Finance Senate Campaign
More on this story from two days ago.
[EpochTimes] A South Carolina state politician who was on the June 28 ballot in the Democratic U.S. Senate primary runoff has been heard in leaked audio strategizing on how to utilize Democratic "sleepers" to run as Republicans in local elections, as well as requesting drug money from a state prison inmate.

Project Veritas, the watchdog organization that obtained the recording, confirmed to The Epoch Times that it verified state Rep. Krystle Matthews was the person speaking with Perry Correctional Institution inmate David Solomon Ballard.

"When we get enough of us in there, we can wreak havoc for real from the inside out," Matthews is heard saying in the recording, dated Feb. 15.

Inmate phone calls are recorded, and those making the call are notified by an operator that calls are recorded.

It’s unclear what the relationship is between Matthews and Ballard, who in 2018 began a four-year sentence for threatening the life and family of a public official, and a 10-year sentence for resisting arrest and assaulting an officer, with multiple disciplinary actions taken against him since his incarceration. He also has an extensive arrest record.

HHS Secretary Becerra Vows to Increase Access to 'Medication Abortion'
[NationalReview] Xavier Becerra, secretary of the Biden administration’s Department of Health and Human Services, called the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization "despicable" on Tuesday, pledging his full attention to expanding access to child sacrifice abortion services in the face of it.

According to Becerra, HHS is "keeping all options on the table" and "has been preparing for this for some time." Becerra stopped short of saying the department would participate in mailing child sacrifice abortion pills to states where the procedure is outlawed, but told news hounds to "stay tuned" on that front. U.S. law prohibits federal dollars from directly funding child sacrifice abortion.

Ex-NYC mayor Bill de Blasio says he no longer supports AIPAC
[IsraelTimes] Running for Congress seat in city’s newly created District 10, former mayor says pro-Israel lobby has undergone ’unacceptable’ change, will not accept endorsement if offered.
That makes it easy, though I can’t imagine he was under consideration anyway.
Former New York City mayor Comrade Bill de Blasio
...cryptocommie mayor of New York and for some reason a Dem candidate for president in 2020. Corrupt and incompetent, his qualifications for office seem to consist of being married to a black woman, with whom he honeymooned in Cuba. He has a preppy-looking son named Dante, whose Divine Comedy involved getting his back hair up when a police car drove past him slowly. New Yorkers voted for him, so they deserved him...
said he no longer supports the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and would not accept the pro-Israel lobby’s endorsement, if offered, in his run for a Congress seat in the city’s newly created District 10.

New Study Shows How Many Voters Have Already Jumped To GOP
[BlueStateConservative] "A political shift is beginning to take hold across the U.S. as tens of thousands of suburban swing voters who helped fuel the Democratic Party
...every time you hear the phrase white people, white supremacy, white anything but paint, you're listening to a Democrat. Ask him/her/it to reimagine something for you; they do that a lot, though not well. They can hear a dog whistle a mile or two away. They invented the spoils system and Tammany Hall, and inspired the addition of the word (Thomas) Nasty to the English language. They want to stop continental drift and repeal the law of unintended side effects...
’s gains in recent years are becoming Republicans.

More than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year, according to voter registration data analyzed by The News Agency that Dare Not be Named. The previously unreported number reflects a phenomenon that is playing out in virtually every region of the country — Democratic and Republican states along with cities and small towns — in the period since President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. S You're a lyin' dog-faced pony soldier...
replaced former President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and whatever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
But nowhere is the shift more pronounced — and dangerous for Democrats — than in the suburbs, where well-educated swing voters who turned against Trump’s Republican Party in recent years appear to be swinging back."
1. Hopefully they aren’t loyal Democrats trying to spoof the Republican primaries.

2. 1 million switching out of something like 150 million active voters doesn’t sound nearly as impressive, though the idea that it’s a tipping point is a happy one, indeed.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Screams, 'F*** Clarence Thomas'
The lady is all class. Which class is a different question...
[DAILYWIRE] Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot (D-IL), incensed by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ concurring opinion in the case which overturned Roe v. Wade, screamed to a crowd over the weekend, “F*** Clarence Thomas!”

In his concurrence, Thomas went farther than the other conservative justices, calling for the concept of substantive due process to be thrown out and reconsidering “all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.” Griswold v. Connecticut enshrined the “right to privacy,” Lawrence v. Texas ruled that people had the right to “seek autonomy” in their private relationships, and Obergefell v. Hodges enshrined the right to same-sex marriage.

“If you read Clarence Thomas’ concurrence … f*** Clarence Thomas,” Lightfoot, who is a lesbian, screamed. She raged, “If he thinks we are going to stand idly by while they take our rights … ”

Calling Justice Thomas 'Uncle Clarence' exposes the rotten sham that is the progressive movement
[NYPOST] A festering rot of racial animosity exists in our society that we willfully ignore socially and politically. It is a rot that eats away at the flesh of our civil society and spoils the greatness of our multicultural nation.

Progressives continually tell us we have blinders on when it comes to racism in American society. They’ve shoved their ideological solution of anti-racism to force us to "deconstruct" what they believe is an inherently deep-seated racist nation. I, as a black American, am supposed to rejoice in the presence of our self-appointed saviors, but I peeked behind the veil and saw who they really are.

Understandably, detractors of the decision have found themselves angry and anguished at last week’s Supreme Court reversal of Roe v. Wade. Six judges found it necessary to overturn, but just one has been elected the face of all political animus: Clarence Thomas, who didn’t even write the court’s opinion.

They say that in times of stress, anger and anguish, you see who people really are. These moments are rare but special because you get to see how much of their rhetoric manifests in action and how much is lip service.

With overwhelming anger seeping through their pores, Democrats saw only one viable target who would satisfy their rage. There was only one person for whom they felt comfortable exposing themselves by lifting the veil of their true hatred and indifference for black people.

In a matter of hours, "Uncle Clarence" was trending on Twitter, a reference to the racist pejorative "Uncle Tom." I witnessed multiple conversations between white progressives questioning if Clarence knows he’s black, chastising him for being married to a white woman and even going so far as to feel completely comfortable calling him a n—er.

Don’t believe me? Do a Twitter search yourself.

Just one example: Left-wing Canadian pollster John Corbett tweeted, "Clarence Thomas: Just another dumb field n—er."

Even more disappointing, many black progressive Democrats stood by and said nothing. I listened to a Twitter Spaces discussion in which a white man said, verbatim, "Clarence Thomas is a n—er" on a mostly black panel, and no one said a thing. Why would they allow this without pushback? Because they aren’t principled either.
