Jeffrey Epstein Case Document Dump: ‘It’s Going To Be Staggering, The Amount Of Names’

(AP Photo/Palm Beach Post, Uma Sanghvi, File)/Palm Beach Post via AP)

 

Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman has been following the Jeffrey Epstein case very closely and he reports that as early as the next few days, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will release approximately 2,000 pages of documents.

According to the court’s three-judge panel, the documents will implicate “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.”

Attorney David Boies, who represents Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, told Sherman the documents were filed during a civil defamation lawsuit brought by Giuffre, a former Mar-a-Lago locker-room attendant, against Epstein’s former girlfriend and alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell.”

Boies added, “Nobody who was around Epstein a lot is going to have an easy time now. It’s all going to come out.”

A second attorney involved in the case told Sherman, “It’s going to be staggering, the amount of names. It’s going to be contagion numbers.”

Yikes.

One of Sherman’s sources told him that Epstein “collected people, that’s what he did.” Well, it’s a safe bet that some of those people are more than a little bit nervous about this latest turn of events. Given the circles in which Epstein traveled, many of these names will likely be familiar. Sherman describes the case as an asteroid poised to  strike the elite world in which Epstein moved. He notes that even after Epstein was forced to register as a sex offender, he continued to cavort among the rich and famous. And now, many of these people are moving heaven and earth to distance themselves from him.

For example, several years ago, Epstein attended a dinner party in Palo Alto at the home of LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman. According to Sherman:

At the dinner, Elon Musk introduced Epstein to Mark Zuckerberg. (“Mark met Epstein in passing one time at a dinner honoring scientists that was not organized by Epstein,” Zuckerberg spokesman Ben LaBolt told me. “Mark did not communicate with Epstein again following the dinner.”)

In an email, Elon Musk responded: “I don’t recall introducing Epstein to anyone, as I don’t know the guy well enough to do so, Epstein is obviously a creep and Zuckerberg is not a friend of mine. Several years ago, I was at his house in Manhattan for about 30 minutes in the middle of the afternoon with Talulah [Riley], as she was curious about meeting this strange person for a novel she was writing. We did not see anything inappropriate at all, apart from weird art. He tried repeatedly to get me to visit his island. I declined.”

A source told Sherman that Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse, said to be one of the largest private residences in the city, “welcomed a steady stream of the Davos crowd in the past decade.” The source added that Bill Gates, Larry Summers, and Steve Bannon visited the house.”

Another name that comes up frequently is that of Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz. He spoke to Sherman earlier this week and said, “I want everything to come out! I’m not afraid of anything because I did nothing wrong.”

Dershowitz told Sherman:

He’d been friends with Epstein since 1996, when they were introduced at a party on Martha’s Vineyard by Lynn Forester de Rothschild. “She begged me to meet him. She told me, ‘here’s this smart academic.’” A few days later, Epstein invited Dershowitz to Les Wexner’s 59th birthday party at Wexner’s mansion in New Albany, Ohio. “It’s a tradition that Jeff invited the smartest person he met that year. He told them I was the smartest.” They remained close for years. Dershowitz strenuously denied ever participating in Epstein’s underage sex ring and said he’d only been in Epstein’s presence with his wife. “I got one massage!” he told me. “It was from a 50-year-old Russian woman named Olga. And I kept my shorts on. I didn’t even like it. I’m not a massage guy.”

I tend to believe Dershowitz for two reasons. I think he’s too smart to get involved in a situation like that and also, he’s not trying to deny or minimize his relationship with Epstein.

We’ll see what the next few days brings. In the meantime, Epstein remains behind bars until his trial. His bail was denied earlier today because he is considered a flight risk.

As Mayors in LA & NYC Promise to #Resist Immigration Enforcement, a Mom & Her Young Children are Murdered by a Twice-Deported Criminal

31-year-old Marvin Oswaldo Escobar-Orellana was arrested Tuesday after allegedly murdering the family with whom he lived in Des Moines.

As reported by the Associated Press, Marvin is supected of having shot to death 29-year-old Rossibeth Flores-Rodriguez and her two children: 11-year-old Grecia Daniela Alvarado-Flores and 5-year-old Ever Jose Mejia-Flores.

Marvin called 911 himself.

The Guatemalan — who’s in the country illegally — has a rich history with law enforcement. In 2010, he was deported due to an illegal entry conviction.

A court ordered him not to return.

2011 = deportation #2.

Marvin told a 911 operator Rossibeth had murdered her own children, and he’d had to kill her in self-defense. Authorities say that’s not what occurred, though it remains unclear why he slaughtered a mother and her two young kids.

He’s being charged with three counts of first degree murder.

Meanwhile, ICE intends to arrest and deport resistors court-ordered to self-deport via a series of raids (here). New York Mayor Bill de Blasio — as well as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti — wants to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Bill had a message for illegal immigrants fitting the description above:

“This is your city.”

Police Chief Michel Moore offered Los Angeles this:

“We will not enforce immigration laws that are civil in nature and fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government.”

Video: Woman Assaults Catholic Priest Mid-Sermon

Westlake Legal Group Capture-7-620x375 Video: Woman Assaults Catholic Priest Mid-Sermon Violence priest News Media Front Page Stories Featured Story Father Marcelo Rossi Culture & Faith crime catholic Brazil assault Allow Media Exception

Catholic Priest and Grammy-nominated singer Father Marcelo Rossi has a massive following in Brazil with a congregation in the thousands, and while addressing his congregation on stage he was met with a mentally-ill LGBT activist who acted out violently.

According to the Daily Caller, Rossi was wrapping up a youth retreat in Cachoeira Paulista, Brazil. While addressing his young crowd, an unidentified 32-year-old woman, who reportedly traveled from Rio de Janeiro with her three-year-old to participate in the retreat, ran up and pushed the priest off the stage to the horror and screams of his congregation.

According to O Dia, a Brazillian media outlet, the woman suffers from bi-polar disorder. She had originally just wanted to speak with the priest, but claims that security guards were chasing her and sent her into a state of lost control.

“She said that she wanted to come in to talk to him and that she was scared the moment she saw the security guards running after her. It’s her version, but anyone who sees the pictures sees that there is none of it [security guards running after her]. She says she got scared and pushed him at a time when she kind of freaked out, lost control, but she had no intention [of hurting him], she just wanted to talk to him.”

She also added that what happened between her and the priest was “between [Rossi] and I.”

Rossi said that he does not intend to press charges on the woman, and hasn’t suffered any serious injuries.

Various reasons have been ginned up by outlets as to why the woman did this. Some reports claim that the preacher had just gotten done saying that fat women can’t get into Heaven, while other speculate that it’s because he had said homophobic things in the past. I can’t get confirmed reports of him saying either of these things, just claims.

As it stands, it just seems like a woman with a mental illness lost control and attacked a priest.

Muslim Man Kills Jewish Woman, Judge Rules He Can’t Stand Trial for Ridiculous Reason

Westlake Legal Group 2zr8u6-1-620x416 Muslim Man Kills Jewish Woman, Judge Rules He Can’t Stand Trial for Ridiculous Reason weed Qur'an Politics Muslim murder Jewish Woman islamist Front Page Stories Front Page France Featured Story crime Crazy antisemitism anti-semite

A Jewish woman was brutally beaten and thrown to her death by a Muslim man in France. His identity as a Muslim it’s directly connected to the case given that he was mumbling about Allah when he did it and has a history of antisemitism. There’s no doubt he targeted this woman because she’s Jewish.

Seems pretty open and shut, right? Nah, it’s France and they’ve gone absolutely insane in regards to trying to handle their Muslim migrant population.

A Muslim man who killed a Jewish woman in an antisemitic attack was probably not criminally responsible because he was high on cannabis, a French judge has ruled.

Kobili Traore has been accused of murdering 65-year-old Sarah Halimi in her flat in Paris on 3 April, 2017.

Traore allegedly recited verses from the Quran as he beat Ms Halimi, before throwing her from a third-floor window.

“I’ve killed the Shaitan [devil],” the 29-year-old reportedly shouted.

Traore has confessed to the murder, but in a preliminary ruling on Friday, a judge who will decide whether he will stand trial said it was possible he was not responsible for his actions because he had smoked cannabis beforehand, Le Parisien reported.

Where’s that blinking gif when you need it?

Oh, here it is.

Westlake Legal Group giphy Muslim Man Kills Jewish Woman, Judge Rules He Can’t Stand Trial for Ridiculous Reason weed Qur'an Politics Muslim murder Jewish Woman islamist Front Page Stories Front Page France Featured Story crime Crazy antisemitism anti-semite

I don’t even know what you say about this but I’ll try.

How does smoking weed absolve you of murdering someone? Does France also let people off if they are drunk and kill someone driving? Worse, the psychiatric evaluations agreed this guy has no mental illness, so there was no underlying issue here keeping him from standing trial.

Yet, a judge has ruled that he’s not criminally responsible, using smoking weed as an excuse. Ignore the “probably” in the description above. His ruling requires the prosecution to now appeal the decision, otherwise the most punishment he’ll get is “treatment” and release.

Here’s another report with more details.

He could be hospitalized for treatment of his psychotic lapses or made to attend a drug rehabilitation program, or he could be released.

Khalifat’s op-ed published Monday on the CRIF website follows a series of protests over perceived delays in Traore’s trial and the efforts, including by judges, that CRIF and others have condemned as attempts to prevent a murder trial.

An aggravated element of a hate crime was added to Traore’s indictment following vocal protests by CRIF, which said that the omission of such charges may have part of a “cover up” by French authorities.

Witnesses said Traore called Halimi a “demon” as he was pummeling her. Halimi’s daughter said following the murder that Traore called her, the daughter, a “dirty Jewess” two years before the killing when they passed each other in the building.

The aggravated element there is the fact that this was clearly a premeditated hate crime based on the antisemitism. But the judge dropped that aspect of the crime as well.

Why is the judge doing this? You’d be forgiven for suspecting the Muslim identity of the man has something to do with it. Many European countries are currently scared to death to set off their migrant populations, which are laced with fundamentalist elements. Areas of anarchy, where police basically ignore crimes, are not a myth and exist in places like Paris, London, and Berlin. With millions of Islamic migrants moving into Europe in the past years, ruling authorities have been trying to maintain a delicate balance which has far too often tipped into excusing the criminality of migrants.

This handling of this case is patently absurd. While it’s completely inexcusable to ignore sexual assault and instead put out education campaigns pretending Islamic men just didn’t know it was wrong, it’s an entirely different level to excuse a hate crime and murder of a Jewish woman by citing the fact that Muslim guy smoked weed. He had harassed her family, called them dirty Jews, and stood over her body quoting the Quran.

I don’t live in Europe, but I can imagine it being pretty terrifying for Jews right now. When even murder is being ignored for specious reasons, it has to feel like their own government no longer has their back. That’s a feeling Jews have experience throughout history far too often, usually leading to really bad results. We can only hope the prosecution here wins their appeal and this monster is made to stand trial for his crimes.

Johnson’s August 3) Delivering campaign pledges – in so far as he can without a durable majority

It is now overwhelmingly likely that Boris Johnson will be the next Conservative Party leader and become Prime Minister.

He may well face a no confidence vote in September, and the Brexit extension expires at the end of October in any event.

So he and his new team will have to hit the ground running in August. We continue our series on what he should do during that month and late July before the Commons is due to return on September 3.

– – – – – – – – – –

According to our weekly updated list, Boris Johnson has made some 25 policy pledges during the Conservative leadership election.  In the probable event of a general election in the autumn, he won’t be able to deliver on many of them.  And he will soon have a working majority of only three in any event.

Which surely rules out a Special Budget in September.  It would have to contain more provisions for No Deal, and wrapping them up in this way would only encourage MPs to vote them down.  He would do better to try any that he needs on the Commons piecemeal.

MPs would also vote down any tax cuts “for the rich” – a category who they would collectively argue includes those who pay the higher rate of income tax, the threshold of which Johnson has promised to raise.

It would be impossible in effect to cut income tax rates in time for a snap election anyway, though the Commons might nod through a rise in the national insurance threshold for lower paid workers, another of his pledges.

But just because Johnson can’t do everything – or even anything much that requires a Bill – doesn’t mean that he can only do nothing.

Governments have greater discretion on spending than tax.  So, for example, he could start to deliver on increasing funding per pupil in secondary schools and raising police numbers.  That would come in handy with an autumn election looming.

The latter move would go hand in hand with a battle with Chief Constables and others over the best use of new resources.  Voters want to see more police on the streets and more use of stop and search.  Johnson’s new Home Secretary should pile in.

And while he will have little legislative room for manoeuvre, he will be able to propose some relatively uncontentious Bills for September – settling the status, for example, of EU citizens.

Then there are measures that he could announce the new Government will not proceed with, as well as those that he wants to proceed with.  Theresa May is providing a growing list of the former.

Not to put too fine a point on it, he should take an axe to parts of her legacy programme – including, as Henry Hill has argued, the hostage to fortune that is the proposed Office for Tackling Injustices.

He will also want to show a direction of travel on some major policy issues.  We do not believe that refusing to commit to a reduction in immigration is sustainable.  As a starting-point to establishing control, he could do a lot worse than take up the Onward proposals floated on this site yesterday by Mark Harper.

There is a limited amount that the new Government will be able to do a in single month – not least when the new Prime Minister is bound to be out of London for parts of it, Parliament isn’t sitting, there is a new Brexit policy to get into shape, and the threat of a no confidence vote in September.

What Johnson can do is form a team, shape a Cabinet – of which more later – begin the Brexit negotiation’s new phase, and show what his priorities are: police, schools and infrastructure, with a particular stress when it comes to the latter on the Midlands and the North.

Is Trump Still Wrong? Nearly Two Dozen MS-13 Members Arrested in the San Fernando Valley for a Series of Machete Murders

Westlake Legal Group urban-youth-paint-graffiti-criminal-streets-872333-pxhere.com_-620x415 Is Trump Still Wrong? Nearly Two Dozen MS-13 Members Arrested in the San Fernando Valley for a Series of Machete Murders Uncategorized Politics murder MS-13 los angeles Gangs Front Page Stories El Salvador donald trump democrats Culture crime Congress California Allow Media Exception

 

 

Donald Trump seems to be, more than any other president in recent history, opposed solely for the sake of opposition.

He says it’s up? Indignant Dems demand it’s down. He says black? They freak out and insist white.

And all of this absurdity tends toward making politics look wholly worthless.

What of the things the President says that are important?

How about his expressed concern over the El Salvadoran gang MS-13? Is that just racist nonsense, as it appears to be portrayed by the opposition?

In LA — which has a host of problems (here and here)– this week, nearly two dozen alleged gang members from the San Fernando Valley were arrested in what prosecutors say was a string of “medieveal-style” murders.

As per to the claims, the group committed seven ghastly killings involving torture and dismemberment around Malibu, North Hollywood, and the Angeles National Forest.

The atrocities were frequently carried out with knives, baseball bats, and the gang’s trademark machetes.

Hacked-to-death victims were often those suspected of having cooperated with the police.

One was a purportedly a homeless man living in an area controlled by the gang.

Consider one of the crimes, perpetrated by six people with a machete, according to federal prosecutors:

“The victim was dismembered, and his body parts were thrown into a canyon after one of the defendants allegedly cut the heart out of the victim’s body.”

The arrests came courtesy of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Task Force on Violent Gangs, which includes the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and the FBI.

Paul Delecourt, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s LA Field Office, explained that they’re sending a message:

“Taking violent offenders off the street should send a message to MS-13 members and their associates that medieval-style violence and senseless murder will not be tolerated in Los Angeles. Working with our local partners, we expect to impact MS-13’s influence in gang-occupied communities.”

The “heinous, cruel [and] depraved” murders were committed by those hoping to rise in rank.

President Trump decried the threat of MS-13. And despite the fact that he mentored Def Jam founder Russell Simmons, those on the blue side of the aisle simply accused him of hating non-whites. They downplayed the threat.

Seven people in Los Angeles, if they were still able to speak, might disagree.

Bracing for ICE Raids, Mayor Garcetti & LA’s Police Chief Assure Illegal Immigrants: ‘We Will Not Enforce Immigration Laws’

Westlake Legal Group eric-garcetti-michel-moore-SCREENSHOT-620x368 Bracing for ICE Raids, Mayor Garcetti & LA’s Police Chief Assure Illegal Immigrants: ‘We Will Not Enforce Immigration Laws’ Uncategorized resistance michel moore los angeles law Judicial Immigration and Customs Enforcement Illegal Immigration Ice homelessness Government Front Page Stories Featured Story Eric Garcetti crime California Bill de Blasio Allow Media Exception

[Screenshot from Mayor Eric Garcetti, https://twitter.com/MayorOfLA/status/1150138702233911296?]

 

On Sunday, I covered New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s statement that the Big Apple belongs, in part, to all those in the country illegally (here).

The remark was made in defiance of national security law protecting the border, as ICE raids begin against — specifically — those court-ordered to self-deport who haven’t done so.

In the same spirit, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti stepped up the protest plate Saturday night.

Raids had been set for Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Denver, New York City, San Francisco, Baltimore, New Orleans, Houston, and Los Angeles.

In a video released by the mayor, assurances were made:

“Rest assured: Here in Los Angeles, we are not coordinating with ICE.”

In the clip posted to Twitter, Eric noted the purported plans of the U.S. government:

“We’ve all heard reports that the Trump administration is threatening to round up and deport thousands of immigrant families in cities across America this weekend.”

In light of the fact, he offered advice to those hiding out:

“No matter their immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know their rights and how to exercise them. Remember: You have the right to remain silent. You don’t have to open your door to an ICE agent that doesn’t have a warrant signed by a judge. You have the right to speak to a lawyer before signing any documents or speaking to law enforcement. And if you need help finding an attorney, you can call 311 and learn more about our Justice Fund and other resources that offer legal support. And whenever possible, keep a record of everything that happens. Take note of an officer’s name and badge number, of when and where you are being questioned, so you can use that information in your own defense.”

Up with advice, down with ICE:

“And most importantly, I want you to know: You do not need to be afraid. Your city is on your side. And rest assured: Here in Los Angeles, we are not coordinating with ICE.”

Eric stood beside LA Police Chief Michel Moore, who added his own refusal to cooperate with the government:

“We will not enforce immigration laws that are civil in nature and fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government. … Everything we do is focused on what’s best for the security and safety of all Angelenos, and consistent with our commitment to constitutional policing and deepening our community partnerships. Simply put, we are here to protect and serve all the people of Los Angeles, regardless of their immigration status.”

Eric and Michel have a unique way of addressing situations. In light of the city’s horrific homeless problem, Michel recently served up his version of a solution: Cancel all bench warrants for homeless people (here).

No word on how many times one has to defecate on the sidewalk in order to qualify as homeless and therefore receive the prize of removed warrants. But why take a chance? I say give it 4 or 5, at least.

#Piles4Pardons.

Independent thinkers, indeed.

A Man Accused of Rape at MSU Sues the School, Wins $725,000. His Accuser Sues, Too – She Gets $475K. What Are We Doing?

Westlake Legal Group eyes-304338_1280-620x426 A Man Accused of Rape at MSU Sues the School, Wins $725,000. His Accuser Sues, Too – She Gets $475K. What Are We Doing? Uncategorized Sexual Assault Rape NFL michigan state university Michigan Judicial Houston Texans Front Page Stories Education Culture crime Allow Media Exception Academia

 

 

Here’s a bizarre story.

Michigan State University has settled two lawsuits as part of a sexual assault case — one with a former football player who claims he was falsely accused, the other with the girl who accused him.

The school paid both.

The woman went after the college because it “did not provide her adequate support services.”

As for the alleged assault: The chick maintains she was too intoxicated to engage in sexual activity, therefore she was victimized. However, video from the night in question shows her walking with a “steady gait” — no sign of debilitating drunkenness.

No charges were brought by law enforcement.

The school reopened the investigation and decided the dude was guilty.

But thanks to his lawsuit, the guilty decision’s been removed from his school record.

Now he can move forward into potential NFL glory– he was drafted by the Houston Texans but was delayed by the hoopla. Hence the suit.

And he’ll be running up and down the field with $725,000 in his (and his lawyer’s?) pocket.

But MSU forked out a giant chunk for the chick, too: She’s walking away with a cool $425,000.

So two people disagree with regard to an event. No evidence proves a crime was committed.

Both sue, both win.

Payday.

From — it should be noted — a taxpayer-funded institution.

We’ve got some things to figure out in this society of ours.

The tweet was heralded as racist from the top of every soapbox the leftist collective could find. It even prompted Omar to retweet an article that essentially labeled all of Trump’s supporters as racist if they support him, marking the first time Omar actually labeled Trump’s following as racist.

After looking at the tweet, I can easily arrive at two conclusions. The tweet is stupid and not very well thought out, but it’s definitely not racist nor is it without its point.

Before I start getting angry tweets thrown at me from both sides, let me explain.

Let’s take a look at the tweet in question.

Trump calls out the anti-American nature of these “Democrat Congresswomen,” and notes that their countries of origin are horribly run, not at all well-maintained, and are usually corrupt.

He then tells them to go back and fix the problems those countries have, then come back and show the U.S. how to solve these problems.

Let me just skip analyzing the countries that these women either hail or descend from. I don’t think I need to point out that Somalia is a horrible place or that the area around Israel is infested with terrorism and brutal governments.

Here are the two things that should be focused on and why I think it’s important to be able to differentiate between a stupid tweet and a racist tweet. For one, Trump isn’t saying that one race is better than another, he’s calling out the governments of foreign countries which definitely aren’t as good as ours. Trying to say that the United States is just as good as Somalia is just like trying to say a lion is the same as a house cat. It just doesn’t work.

Trump didn’t say “Omar and Tlaib’s races are inferior to the white race that dominated America’s history.” That would have been a racist tweet. What he said was that these women should retreat to these countries where these governments get it horribly wrong, then upon fixing these governments where problems that these hard-leftist claim to loath really are present, come back and show us how to fix the problems at home.

It’s key that he also said that they should come back. He doesn’t denounce their citizenship within the U.S., nor does he remove the idea that they’re elected officials. In fact, his tweet very clearly recognizes both.

Trump doesn’t demonstrate racism throughout these tweets, and it appears that claims of racism are inferred rather than proven from mainstream outlets that report on it. It’s the idea that Trump would tweet something like this because he’s racist. Thing is, the tweet doesn’t touch race, just crappy governments, and last I checked, government bodies don’t qualify as races.

On top of that, Trump has a point. These women consistently act like the United States is a cruel country with horrific problems generated from its embracing of a culture that was propagated by their favorite boogieman, the white male. I feel like I shouldn’t need to point out how racist and sexist this is, but funny enough, I constantly have to.

Their anger usually comes off as ignorant, like the spoiled ranting of first-world kids who haven’t truly known what it’s like to be oppressed, or live with little hope. Trump is advocating that they truly see what it’s like to have to live in a place where you don’t get a vote based on your genitalia, and prejudice and bigotry are a standard, not an exception like it is in the country they’re in now.

That said, this tweet was horribly worded and a reeked of ignorance. While not named, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the most famous of the “progressive Democrat Congresswomen” and while being born in in the U.S., she is a descendant of Puerto Ricans, a U.S. territory. It’s a place with a increasingly bad drug problem and a good deal of its citizens live below the poverty line, but it’s not exactly the hell-hole that is Somalia, where Omar actually hails from. Tlaib’s family is from Palestinian places outside of Israel, which are infested with terrorists and brutal governments, but Tlaib was born in the United States.

I’m not defending these women. The bigotry and ridiculousness they’ve shown eclipses anything stupid that Trump has done or said, but with that in mind, I think Trump’s tweet indicates that he doesn’t know much about these women other than the fact that they’re of foreign origin. Whether he mean to or not, this comes off as ignorance, and as such makes his already un-professional tweet come off as stupid. It’s likely that when he wrote of their countries of origin, he meant where they were descended from, but that doesn’t come off in the tweet.

Two things can be true at once. Trump’s tweet can be solid in its point, and it can be a ridiculous tweet that he shouldn’t have probably tweeted out in the first place. He’s definitely punching down at lawmakers who, while they have a very loud following, are generally recognized as silly people who don’t know what they’re doing half the time.

Let me be clear. I think addressing their comments in context and slapping them down when they tend to make news is a superb idea, but throwing out statements that contain generalities that come off like whispered comment on an episode of Real Housewives isn’t.

Omar and Ocasio-Cortez aren’t the brightest bulbs in the box, but we can easily sit back and let them prove that themselves without the President’s jabs. That said, what Trump tweeted wasn’t at all racist, and I think it’s a bit ridiculous that this isn’t obvious.

This is just one more incident that proves that the word “racism” has lost all meaning.

Wow. This is an incredible story.

According to cops (and WPVI), here’s what happened…

A 25-year-old man was working at a pizza delivery joint in Philadelphia Thursday when his same-aged girlfriend — and mother of his two kids — came in around 9 p.m.

She’d left her vehicle running with her three youngsters — a 7-month-old, an 18-month-old, and a 5-year-old (from a prior relationship) inside.

While the two spoke in the restaurant, a man carjacked the full-of-kids Hyundai.

The pair chased after the car, which got stuck in nearby traffic.

As per Scott Small, of the Philadelphia Police Department:

“They were able to pull this car thief out of the vehicle.”

The 54-year-old assailant subsequently took off on foot, but the boyfriend caught him and a fight ensued.

Back to Scott:

“Then other males from the neighbourhood intervened and began punching and kicking the male who took the vehicle.”

They beat the guy severely.

He was taken to a hospital with extreme damage to the head and face. At 10:05, he was pronounced dead.

The three children were unharmed and spent the night with relatives.

The tykes’ mom and dad were said to be cooperating with detectives.

It’s yet to be determined whether charges will be brought against the father.

What an intense and insane and terrible thing. It no doubt conjures strong convictions.

Thank God the children were unharmed and the crime was stopped. And kudos to a dad for doing whatever it took.

But as for the ending, what do you think? What feelings do you take away? Are you struck by thoughts of justice or of reckless, animalistic violence?

I look forward to hearing from you in the Comments section.
