filmmaker gets a year in prison

Los Angeles Times, by Victoria Kim

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/7/2012 6:21:33 PM

A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced the filmmaker behind "Innocence of Muslims,” the anti-Islam film that sparked rioting across the globe, to a year behind bars after the man admitted to violating the terms of his release from an earlier conviction. Mark Basseley Youssef admitted to four violations, including lying to his probation officer and using bogus names. In exchange, prosecutors dropped four other counts, including allegations that Youssef lied in saying that his role in the film's production was limited to writing the script. Youssef was under a type of federal probation

The government found a way to keep him from speaking to the public now, didn't they?
This is a ridiculous sentence for minor violations of probation.
Be afraid, be very afraid of your government.

"Sparked riots across the globe"

It's criminal of a "news" organization to be utterly complicit in spreading mythology.

If he had gotten involved with rape and robbery he would still be on the street but.....lying to counsel.....that's dangerous stuff and must be punished with lengthy incarceration.

Sharia comes to your house.

Relax....you're gonna love it.

So much less to think about.

And the best part.....women are always wrong and guilty.....like children.

Men are always right.

Deja vu.

1980: Ayatollah Khomeini picks up the phone on Wednesday morning and orders the hostages released.

2012: Ayatollah Obama picks up the phone on Wednesday morning and orders Youssef sentenced.

Is the media back to blaming Benghazi's attack on the viceo?

The charges are interesting, too. They might as well have convicted him for blasphemy.

It's about time to get ready to pounce with the new Congress to re-press the charges on Fast and Furious since it cannot be a holdover. jugears and holder are trying to run the clock out on that!

This guy is an FBI snitch, a Muslim to boot, who produced this video for a not-to-be-wasted crisis, such as the embassy attacks on 9/11 and the Benghazi consulate massacre. He's been sentenced to a year in prison and the country will forget about him and Benghazi, and the Prez skates. The 'filmmaker' will probably be on his way to Egypt before the month is out, and we'll be none the wiser for it.

De Blasio said the inequality gap fundamentally threatens the future of the city and it would not be ignored by the city government.

(Snip) The pipeline starts in Mexico, where cartels traffic Colombian-produced heroin by the kilogram.

ADP´s January National Employment Report is out. The payroll-processing firm estimates 175,000 workers were hired by private-sector firms in January. Market economists were looking for a 185,000 estimate. The December estimate from ADP´s previous report was revised down to 227,000 from 238,000. Below is a summary of the data from the release: Goods-producing employment rose by 16,000 jobs in January, down from a downwardly-revised figure of 50,000 in December. Nearly all of the growth came from the construction industry which added 25,000 jobs over the month; this followed increases of 30,000 and 32,000 in the prior two months. Manufacturing lost

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring.

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.

This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term.
