Vice Magazine Writer ‘Hopes That Terrible Men Like Jeffrey Epstein and Brett Kavanaugh Will Ultimately Get What They Deserve’

Westlake Legal Group Kavanaugh-4 Vice Magazine Writer ‘Hopes That Terrible Men Like Jeffrey Epstein and Brett Kavanaugh Will Ultimately Get What They Deserve’ Vice (Magazine) Supreme Court Sofia Barrett-Ibarria Politics Media Mark Hemingway Liberal Elitism Justice Brett Kavanaugh Judicial Jeffrey Epstein Front Page Stories Featured Story fake news Culture crime corruption Allow Media Exception Aileen Wuornos Abuse of Power 2020

 

Vice Magazine published an article about the life and death of serial killer Aileen Wuornos, a sex worker who was found guilty of killing seven clients between 1989 and 1990. She claimed she had shot these men in self-defense.

After spending ten years on death row Wuornos died by lethal injection in 2002. She has become a cult hero to some, including rap star Cardi B, who featured her photograph on a single she released in May. According to the author, Sofia Barret-Ibarria, “to her fans, Wuornos’s story offers a powerful example of a survivor who defies the respectability politics of victimhood.”

Writer Mark Hemingway read this article as it was originally published (paragraph below). Barret-Ibarria equates Justice Brett Kavanaugh to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and “countless others.” She hopes they “will ultimately get what they deserve.” That is to say, they deserve to be shot to death by a serial killer.

As reports of powerful men who abuse vulnerable women continue to surface, it’s hard to deny that survivors are craving stories of revenge—stories where victims not only live to survive the abuse, but fight back. “I think part of her appeal to me personally, in this cultural moment, is that Aileen Wuornos was a woman that men feared,” said Bailey. Wournos story offers hope that terrible men like Jeffrey Epstein, Brett Kavanaugh and countless others will ultimately get what they deserve. “A prostitute hunting men instead of being hunted is a deeply comforting story.”

Hemingway rightly points out in the tweet below that “the author is saying Brett Kavanaugh DESERVES TO BE MURDERED BY A SERIAL KILLER?!…Were all the responsible editors left in journalism killed in a purge night or something.”

The emphasized sentence was changed after it was widely criticized.

As reports of powerful men who abuse vulnerable women continue to surface, it’s hard to deny that survivors are craving stories of revenge—stories where victims not only live to survive the abuse, but fight back. “I think part of her appeal to me personally, in this cultural moment, is that Aileen Wuornos was a woman that men feared,” said Bailey. At a time when we are constantly inundated with stories like that of Jeffrey Epstein and Brett Kavanaugh, her story is an example of men facing repercussions for their actions. “A prostitute hunting men instead of being hunted is a deeply comforting story.”

Although the revised sentence no longer implies that Kavanaugh deserves to be murdered by a serial killer, she still includes him in the same category as Epstein.

I am not a lawyer, but it would seem to me that some of the language used by liberal writers and commentators in their coverage of Justice Kavanaugh meets the legal criteria for libel. I realize that Kavanaugh is a public figure and the bar is set higher than if he were a private citizen. He is also a conservative, so the bar goes higher still.

Justice Kavanaugh has not been convicted of a crime. He is the victim of the most vicious character assassination campaign in U.S. political history.

At some point, those who peddle fake news must pay a price for it.

A New York Judge Loses His Seat Over an Incendiary Endorsement of the Death Penalty. Is This Justice?

Westlake Legal Group justice-2060093_1280-620x413 A New York Judge Loses His Seat Over an Incendiary Endorsement of the Death Penalty. Is This Justice?

First things first: In case you missed it, please read:

Think You’ve Heard The Stupidest Thing Ever? I Disagree. Witness The Woke’s New Condemnation Of IKEA

Going forward:

In New York, a judge recently expressed favor toward old-fashioned capital punishment, along with what appeared to be an ‘attaboy for Trump.

Altona Town Court Justice Kyle R. Canning posted to social media an image of a noose with the following caption:

“IF WE WANT TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN WE WILL HAVE TO MAKE EVIL PEOPLE FEAR PUNISHMENT AGAIN.”

See the image via this link.

Of course, public hangings used to be the method of choice when death penalty cases were taken to their furthest corporal end. 

But contemporary society seems to have an ever-shorter memory, and the rope was interpreted by some as a murderous message about black people.

A formal complaint was filed by the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct, claiming Kyle seemed to “convey racial and/or political bias” and “failed to act in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.”

Commission administrator Robert H. Tembeckjian accused Kyle of using “the image of the noose in making a political point.”

In an issued statement, Robert reamed Kyle:

“The noose is an incendiary image with repugnant racial connotations. It is the very antithesis of law and justice.”

But Kyle told The New York Times he had no intention of anything racial. 

Furthermore, he’s a registered Democrat:

“There is not a man that I could despise more than Donald Trump.”

That statement definitely wouldn’t have gotten him in trouble.

Kyle explained that he was just touting the effectiveness of the death penalty:

“It could have been a gas chamber. It could have been an electric chair.”

Should his posting have brought the scourge of his industry? Was it just that he be censured? What’s more important — his intent or its perception?

Of course, he has a point — despite the evident impression of some in this racially charged climate, hanging was long ago the standard ultimate criminal punishment for all races in America, just as slavery existed all over the world among various races before America undertook its shamefulness.

But the moment’s what matters, and Kyle’s depiction of a noose means he won’t ever have to deal with a hung jury. On Tuesday, he resigned from his position and promised to never again hold judicial office.

He’d only just last year took the $8,700-a-year position.

In his letter of resignation, of the commission’s filing against him, Kyle explained, “They have presented me with several different options in resolving what they claim to be a serious offense.”

Despite a loss of almost ten grand, Kyle’s still rolling in the dough. According to the Times, he delivers bread for a living.

Heartbreak: House Democratic Impeachment Caucus Is Dealt a Setback After Pelosi Smacks Them Down on Two Fronts

Though the “bombshell” New York Times hit piece against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has collapsed under the weight of its own deliberate omissions, that hasn’t stopped some impeachment-happy Democrats from demanding a formal impeachment inquiry.

But while the discredited report hasn’t prevented opportunistic Squad members and Democratic presidential candidates like Sen. Kamala Harris from hitting the gas on the Impeach Kavanaugh bus, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a giant red “STOP” sign in hand – and is already using it:

House Democratic leaders and rank-and-file members are dismissing calls to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, with some arguing the House has limited investigative resources and others saying it is a politically toxic issue.

Asked on Tuesday night if she sees the House spending any time on the Kavanaugh matter, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded with a simple “no.”

Pelosi didn’t elaborate, but other House Democrats boiled it down to fears a Kavanaugh impeachment show trial could hurt them in 2020:

Rep. Katie Hill, a California freshman, said she believes talk of impeachment could hurt Democrats on the campaign trail.
[…]
“… I know that this is not the issue that we want to be talking about just in terms of election,” she added. “I would like us to be able to just do what’s right, but I know that for many of my colleagues, it’s a really, really tough one.”
[…]
Pennsylvania Rep. Matt Cartwright also said his party should not prioritize the issue.

“Democrats are focused on the bread and butter, kitchen table issues facing ordinary Americans,” he told CNN.

Meanwhile, Politico reports on the “impeachment schism” that has grown between Pelosi and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler over the committee’s slow Trump impeachment waltz:

In a closed-door meeting last week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi stunned lawmakers and aides with a swipe at Democratic staff on the House Judiciary Committee.

Pelosi criticized the panel’s handling of impeachment in harsh terms, complaining committee aides have advanced the push for ousting President Donald Trump far beyond where the House Democratic Caucus stands. Democrats simply don’t have the votes on the floor to impeach Trump, Pelosi said.

“And you can feel free to leak this,” Pelosi added, according to multiple people in the room. Pelosi’s office declined to comment on the meeting.

Politico Playbook reported this morning that Democrats are far short of the votes they would need in the House to be able to impeach Trump. According to Democratic insiders they’ve talked to, 175 Democrats would vote today to impeach Trump if the issue came before the floor. That’s 43 short of the 218 needed.

So Pelosi is right to be concerned about how it would look for members if they tried and failed to impeach Trump in the middle of a crucial election cycle after months of Democrats like Nadler and AOC screaming “IMPEACH!”

They don’t have the votes now. They won’t have the votes later. Not for a Kavanaugh impeachment nor a Trump impeachment. Pelosi knows it.

Writer Behind NYT’s Kavanaugh Smear Finds the True Culprit Behind the Outrage: Fox News (Because of Course)

Westlake Legal Group brett-kavanaugh-hearing-SCREENSHOT-620x394 Writer Behind NYT’s Kavanaugh Smear Finds the True Culprit Behind the Outrage: Fox News (Because of Course) Supreme Court Social Media SCOTUS Robin Pogrebin Politics NY Times North Carolina New York Times Media Judicial journalism It Is Okay To Laugh Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Courts Brett Kavanaugh Allow Media Exception

When last we left you, New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly were blaming the paper’s editorial staff for cutting out a crucial section of their weekend hit piece on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Pogrebin and Kelly have insisted that they included the exculpatory information which noted that the alleged victim of an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh has no recollection of it happening. The authors also allege that somehow during the editing process that information was was innocently removed.

Few people are buying it, which is quite possibly why Pogrebin shifted gears on the Twitter machine earlier today by pulling a tactic straight out of the leftist playbook: When all else fails, blame Fox News.

Here’s what Pogrebin tweeted:

Vox’s leading Democratic party shill Aaron Rupar asserted in the piece that Fox News has misleadingly “described changes the New York Times made to Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly’s story as a ‘correction’ at least a dozen times.”

Rupar then states that “there’s just one problem — the Times did not, in fact, ‘correct’ anything. To make a ‘correction’ to a story indicates something was factually wrong.”

The problem with Rupar’s piece and Pogrebin retweeting it is that Pogrebin herself has used the term “corrected” to describe the paper taking action to add the information to the story (h/t: Twitchy):

And as Jeryl Bier notes, by Vox’s own standards they label fixing the omission of relevant information from a news story as a … correction:

Regardless of how Pogrebin and Vox labeled the Times’ corrective actions, the whole debate is weak sauce, and a pathetic attempt at shifting the blame elsewhere for failures that can ultimately only be pinned on the two people who wrote the original piece and those who “proofed” it before it went to press:

Pogrebin and Kelly have shown no shame when it comes to the pretzels they twist themselves into to avoid blame for what happened. So their critics should, in turn, shown no mercy in their constructive criticisms. Fair is fair.

‘Top Editors’ at NYT Reportedly Rejected Kavanaugh Story, Told Writers They Could Pitch to ‘Sunday Review’ Section

The fallout from the New York Times “bombshell” report that wasn’t continues.

Vanity Fair reports that book writers Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly (who are also reporters at the paper) originally went to the news side of the paper to get their story published – but it was rejected:

Why did the Kavanaugh excerpt end up in the Review? People familiar with how things went down told me that Kelly and Pogrebin initially pitched their scoop to the news side, but the top editors ultimately felt that there wasn’t enough juice to warrant a story there, let alone a big page-one treatment (the type many lefties would have been salivating for). Instead, Pogrebin and Kelly were told that they could pitch the Review, which is entirely independent of the News department. I asked for clarification as to what about the story wasn’t News-pages-worthy, but the Times declined to comment, as did Kelly and Pogrebin. (A Times spokesperson did, however, point out that “it’s not unusual for Opinion or Sunday Review pieces to break news.”)

None of this makes any sense. Why would editors on the news side reject this story, but find it suitable for the Sunday Review side?

Elizabeth Vaughn wrote this morning that Pogrebin and Kelly said Monday night their original report did include the information about how the alleged victim had no recollection of the alleged sexual assault – but that the editors somehow unintentionally removed it during the editing process.

Neither of these stories about the differences in both the news and Sunday Review sides exonerate the New York Times from being guilty of journalistic malpractice (at the very least) by way of removing vital information from the piece before it went to press (assuming what Pogrebin and Kelly said was true), information that called the explosive allegation in to question.

But should we believe the authors were victims of an innocent editing mix-up? An interview Pogrebin gave this morning on WMAL makes the writers themselves look guilty, too:

In her WMAL interview this morning, Pogrebin repeatedly refers to the woman as a “victim.” This word choice is instructive about Pogrebin’s thought process. Calling her a victim would be begging the question if the woman claimed this status for herself. She would then be only an alleged victim. But she isn’t even that. She has made no claim to be a victim, yet Pogrebin describes her as one anyway. This is a case of a reporter overriding her reporting with her opinion. Pogrebin then impugns the woman by saying she was so drunk that her memory can’t be trusted. She also says that “everyone” at the party was massively drunk and that their memories are therefore unreliable.

Does she hear herself talking? If this is true, it means Max Stier was also drunk and his memories also can’t be trusted. (Someone should ask Pogrebin whether she was present at this party about which she knows so much.) By what journalistic standard does a reporter discount what is said by the person with the most direct and relevant experience of a matter — the woman in question at the Yale party — in favor of a drunken bystander?

Hmmm.

We know from past experiences that the paper operates from the Republicans / Orange Man Bad perspective, and to hell with standards. But even with that said, this seems especially egregious and intentional no matter how you look at it, and no matter who ultimately is found to be at fault.

In the immediate aftermath of the “report” from the New York Times over the weekend about an old-turned-new sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a number of high-profile Democratic politicians and candidates for president weighed in and demanded his impeachment.

This in spite of the fact that the correction the paper issued hours after they were first alerted to it by conservative new media noted that the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

This is also in spite of the fact that the person who made the allegation originally is a Clinton-era liberal lawyer who has a vested interest in destroying Kavanaugh (which naturally calls into question the lawyer’s motivations):

We won’t even dwell on the fact that it was a liberal lawyer—one who happened to have been pitted against Kavanaugh during the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings—who opportunistically claims to have recalled this 35-year-old incident and reported it to the FBI.

As we all know, facts don’t care about your feelings, but Democrats don’t care about the facts. So the beat rolled on well into Monday with more Democrats lining up to board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY).

Apparently AOC didn’t want to waste the opportunity to insert herself into the debate, and she did so by posting a video clip of her during her 2018 campaign trashing highly educated “rich” men like Kavanaugh who she claimed “believed” they could get away with sexual assault.

While it’s not odd for Ocasio-Cortez to go the narcissistic route by making herself a focal point of any debate, what was odd about her tweets this morning about Kavanaugh is that she initially deleted the first one:

11 minutes after jtLOL noted she had deleted her original tweet, AOC reposted an identical one:

She followed up with another one from that same speech, because AOC has rarely seen a video of herself that she didn’t like.

But why did she delete her first tweet initially? This explanation from Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold is the only one that makes sense:

Yep. Might as well roll with it. Gotta get those RTSs, likes, and all the media attention that goes along with them.

In any event, no matter the reason for deleting and reposting, Ocasio-Cortez got dunked in the comments:

I want to believe that. I really do.

As I wrote earlier today, the New York Times has been rightly taken to the woodshed the last two days after a thinly sourced hit piece they did over the weekend on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh fell apart once The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway scrutinized the piece and found a crucial point missing:

The paper issued a correction several hours after this was pointed out to them …

… but not before the damage was done, and not before numerous Democratic candidates for president jumped on board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is no stranger to smears coming from the mainstream media, ripped the Times in a must-read Twitter rant earlier today.

He started off by noting that the Kavanaugh hit piece would have gotten a student an “F” in high school, insinuating the piece should have never gotten past the paper’s editors. Because it did, Cruz suggested this proves the Times has a “political agenda”:

There’s just no other explanation but bias, asserted Cruz, as to why the paper omitted the critical information about alleged victim Deborah Ramirez:

Will any of the 2020 presidential candidates retract or amend their calls for impeachment against Kavanaugh? Of course not, Cruz opined:

Cruz is right. There is no legitimate justification whatsoever for why the paper published the article they did on Kavanaugh without noting the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

As I speculated earlier, I suspect this piece was published for one reason and one reason only: To help Democrats in their efforts to intimidate the sitting conservative-leaning Justices on the Supreme Court to rule on future cases in their favor in hopes that once they do, the media and leftists will finally leave them alone.

Cruz is also right in stating that it’s highly unlikely the NYT would have issued a correction had it not been for Hemingway’s tweet. Stories like these are why it’s very important that conservative new media types keep up the pressure on mainstream media outlets to own up to their mistakes and deliberate falsehoods.

Otherwise, nine times out of ten the fake news will stand as the official media-driven “record” in place of the truth.

He started off by noting that the Kavanaugh hit piece would have gotten a student an “F” in high school, insinuating the piece should have never gotten past the paper’s editors. Because it did, Cruz suggested this proves the Times has a “political agenda”:

There’s just no other explanation but bias, asserted Cruz, as to why the paper omitted the critical information about alleged victim Deborah Ramirez:

Will any of the 2020 presidential candidates retract or amend their calls for impeachment against Kavanaugh? Of course not, Cruz opined:

Cruz is right. There is no legitimate justification whatsoever for why the paper published the article they did on Kavanaugh without noting the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

As I speculated earlier, I suspect this piece was published for one reason and one reason only: To help Democrats in their efforts to intimidate the sitting conservative-leaning Justices on the Supreme Court to rule on future cases in their favor in hopes that once they do, the media and leftists will finally leave them alone.

Cruz is also right in stating that it’s highly unlikely the NYT would have issued a correction had it not been for Hemingway’s tweet. Stories like these are why it’s very important that conservative new media types keep up the pressure on mainstream media outlets to own up to their mistakes and deliberate falsehoods.

Otherwise, nine times out of ten the fake news will stand as the official media-driven “record” in place of the truth.

The coordinated mainstream media/Democratic party smear attempts at getting then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh disqualified from consideration for the Supreme Court failed in a big way last year. But even though the left lost that battle, they made clear that the fight against a potential vote against Roe v. Wade was not over.

Back in May, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) – who was a presidential candidate at the time, made clear that “action” should be taken against Justices Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch in the event they voted to overturn the 1973 abortion ruling. Here’s what she said at the time:

“That is the law of the land, and I think both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh lied to the Judiciary Committee when they said they would uphold precedent. And if they then go back on this — this statement they made during their confirmation hearings — I think we should look towards what we will do to address it, because we need far more oversight and accountability over these Supreme Court Justices, and if they lied in their hearings, then we should take action.”

In a nutshell, Gillibrand was advocating the impeachment of either or both of the Justices if they struck down the left’s most precious of all SCOTUS rulings. It was a clear attempt at intimidating the Justices to vote a certain way or else. That idea is not off the table just because she’s dropped out of the presidential race.

Around the same time Gillibrand was making this argument in May, other presidential candidates who are still in the race as of this writing like Sens. Elizabeth Warren (MA), Kamala Haris (CA), former El Paso Congressman Beto O’Rourke and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg advocated for expanding the Supreme Court as a way of nullifying the votes of Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch.

The messages these former and current Democratic presidential candidates were sending to Kavanaugh and Gorsuch was clear: You better not rock the boat at the Supreme Court on our signature issues, or you’ll be sorry.

The left’s/media’s latest attempt at a smear came courtesy of the New York Times over the weekend in a clear hit piece designed to make an old, discredited sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh become new and relevant again. In response to the story, the Usual Democratic Suspects lined up to call for an investigation and his impeachment.

Unfortunately for them, the New York Times had to issue an embarrassing correction to the story – namely that Deborah Ramirez, the woman who was allegedly assaulted by Kavanaugh – reportedly does not recall the alleged incident.

President Trump responded to the Times’ reporting on Sunday by suggesting Kavanaugh start suing for libel:

While it’s highly unlikely for a variety of reasons that Kavanaugh will take such advice, the bigger point Trump was getting at in his tweets is that Democrats in Washington, DC and those who work for national news outlets under the guise of objectivity are using bogus stories like this one in order to try to influence Kavanaugh into voting their way on future high profile cases in hopes that they’ll finally leave him alone.

Democrats and the mainstream media alike know that their loudly-voiced hypocritical complaints about the politicization of the Supreme Court have likely influenced Chief Justice John Roberts to vote with the court’s liberal Justices, so why not try it on Kavanaugh, too?
