Leslie Van Houten was a member of the Charlie Manson “family,” an infamous cult of unrepentant monsters devoted to orgies of sex, torture, and murder. In 1969, the 19-year-old Van Houten plunged a knife into Rosemary LaBianca 14 times. Van Houten made sure the last thing Rosemary witnessed before she died was the murder of her husband, Leno, by the Manson gang. A Los Angeles jury sentenced Van Houten to death, but California law subsequently commuted her sentence to life in prison. Recently, a parole board recommended that she be freed, in large part due to decades of efforts on her behalf by Left-wing academics
Comments: The parole board has recommended her parole once before. Gov. Brown vetoed it. We’ll see what happens this time. He may do the politically correct thing and decide to veto again. There is no sympathy for Manson’s girls in CA.
Even the photo will make you ill. The glee…
Bernardine Dohrn gets a well-deserved shout out. Bill Ayers’s wife. We know that story.
I am not supposed to hate people, but I do hate Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. They really are deplorable people. As for Leslie Van Houghton, I hope that Governor Moonbeam does the right thing and does not grant parole. There are crimes and then there are horrific crimes.
In case you are not aware of it: This is a war to destroy the united States of America from within. As Obama put it, to fundamentally change this nation. But, before you can do that, you have to tear down all the institutions and cultural norms. You have to separate the people from their heritage, their traditions and their history. Thus you have to glorify everything they hate. You have to make despised everything they loved. you have to shame every one in their entire history they once thought of as role models...Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, Columbus, and the brave and not so brave of the famous conflicts of that nation- including their heroes of war, including their civil war. You have to make what is considered bad into things good and good into things bad. Thus a detached and wandering populace can be given an entirely new identity. By making the reprehensible things, like murder, communism, and deceit honorable, you so confuse the people, they no longer worship at their shattered altars. they will accept anything you put before them. and if you make them fearful, they will surrender to anyone who offers them peace. They will willingly walk right through the doors of the salve barn. This is how the fundamental changes these leftist cretins are working toward are made. And it is all pre-written, pre-planned and well on the way to success. It has been ongoing for the last 40 years!
The New York Times, seeking to amass more paid subscriptions in an era of non-stop, must-read headlines, is halving the number of articles available for free each month. Starting Friday, most non-subscribers will only be able to read five articles rather than 10 before they’re asked to start paying. It’s the first change to the paywall in five years. A basic Times subscription, with unlimited access to the website and all news apps, is $15 every four weeks. Scoops on the Trump administration’s scandals and sexual-harassment allegations in Hollywood have already contributed to a surge in Times subscriptions, which jumped 60 percent
Matt Lauer´s contract called for him to be paid tens of millions of dollars. But NBC doesn´t expect to pay it now that he´s been fired. Lauer "will not be paid past his last day of work," a senior NBC source told CNNMoney on Friday. Questions have been swirling about the possibility because the New York Post published a story on Thursday that said Lauer´s lawyers have been angling to get him a payout. New York Post´s headline: "Lauer´s lawyers trying to get him $30M payout after firing." The $30 million figure was predicated on the fact that Lauer was paid about $20 million
There’s less to the news than meets the eye. Former Trump-administration national-security adviser Michael Flynn is expected to plead guilty today to lying to the FBI regarding his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the United States. Flynn, who is reportedly cooperating with the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller, is pleading guilty in federal district court in Washington, D.C., to a one-count criminal information (which is filed by a prosecutor in cases when a defendant waives his right to be indicted by a grand jury). The false-statement charge, brought under Section 1001 of the federal penal code, stems from Flynn’s
Former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to a process crime of lying to FBI investigators about the content of a December 29th phone call with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. The conversation occurred the same day that then-president Barack Obama announced sanctions against Russia for its interference in the 2016 election. This is the same misleading information that led to the White House firing Michael Flynn. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has charged Flynn (full pdf below) with falsely telling FBI agents that he did not ask the ambassador “to refrain from escalating the situation” in response to the sanctions. According
A 22-year-old asylum seeker has been given a suspended sentence after he attempted to pay a local prostitute with fake cash he had made on a photocopier. The 22-year-old, who is said not to have a very firm grasp of German, attempted to buy the services of a prostitute at a brothel in the town of Sindelfingen. When he gave her cash, the prostitute noticed the bills were obvious fakes and alerted security who called the police, Stuttgarter Zeitung reports. Investigators soon learned that the migrant had used a colour copy machine at the Magstadt asylum home where he volunteered doing janitorial
The New York Post reported Matt Lauer´s lawyers seek a $30 million payout from Comcast (NBC) for firing him. Hahaha. From the Post: NBC had in 2016 renegotiated a new deal with Lauer valued at $20 million a year which would have kept him on the air through the end of 2018. But moral clauses are often included in TV contracts and specify that talent could be fired without pay if they bring the company into any disrepute. Another TV insider said, “There is no way Matt is getting paid. There has been an irrevocable breach of Matt’s contract, there is a moral clause that
There will be no parades. No celebrations in Times Square. Not even much acknowledgement in the funny papers. But 400 Marines are returning from Syria early, having helped vanquish the Islamic State. God bless every one. From Fox News: The U.S. military operation in Syria and Iraq says it is sending home more the 400 Marines and their artillery from Syria, after they accomplished their mission against the Islamic State group. The press unit for Operation Inherent Resolve says the 1st Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment was supporting local partner forces with artillery firepower to defeat Islamic State militants in their
This week, while campaigning in an Alabama church — as a Bible-believing Christian, I’ll note that this story is already off to a questionable start — Judge Roy Moore, the state’s embattled Republican Senate candidate, faced down a rather spirited heckler. “The entire time, all the girls are lying?” the man shouted, right before he was escorted out of the event. “Why would they lie?” If you’ve been following our very depressing national news cycle, you know the story: Moore, age 70, has faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct dating back four decades, two of them involving underage girls, including
Earlier this week, President Trump made waves when he announced there would be no deal with the Democrats in the forthcoming budget battle. He increased the swells when he also insisted there would be no tax increases, contrary to Democrats’ wishes. On December 8, the government faces yet another partial shutdown unless the president and Congress can agree on a mechanism to fund it through the end of the year. In response, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and the handful of other Leftist holdovers in Congress took to the airwaves—yet again—to portray Trump as an irrational leader. (Snip) Can you blame them? Trump
The Muslim population of Sweden could hit 30 per cent by 2050 if current migration patterns continue, with the figure hitting 14 per cent continent-wide unless there are radical changes to Europe’s attitudes and policies towards mass migration. Even in the unlikely case that all migration from outside the European Union suddenly and permanently ended, the new research on Europe’s rapidly shifting demographics found that by 2050 the Muslim population of the continent would hit 7.4 per cent, up from 4.9 per cent in 2016. More likely is that levels of migration will continue as they have done for years,
“American business unchained.” So goes that mantra from business-minded leaders everywhere in response to the Trump economic surge now taking place. From coast to coast the American Middle Class is feeling better. Not quite great yet, but definitely better and much of it has to do with President Trump’s ongoing war to push back the suffocating layers of federal regulations that have been choking off job production and stagnating wages for much too long. These regulations cost U.S. business and consumers nearly TWO TRILLION dollars. Via BLOOMBERG: Reducing government regulation is tough. It’s resisted by all those who benefit, including
It´s all about style not substance to President Trump´s critics. The conservatives in DC get their pigtails in a knot over his tweets. For all their sanctimonious proclamations of principles, they have none. For if they did, they would rally behind Trump because he is actually doing all those things conservatives said they wanted done. He is re-setting the judiciary, eliminating the Islamic State, erasing the Obama legacy, and kicking political correctness to the gutter where it belongs.
The NFL’s sellout to their anthem-protesting players is starting to look a lot more like a buyout. According to ESPN, the league will offer nearly $100 million to causes designed to promote “social justice change.” In a move unlike anything seen from a major American sports league, the league will offer the money in hopes that it will end the ratings-killing protest movement begun by Colin Kaepernick in the preseason of 2016. According to ESPN: The NFL’s multifaceted offer earmarks at least $89 million over a seven-year period for both national and local projects, according to documents reviewed by ESPN. On the national
A homeless man whose undocumented immigration status intensified a national debate over the ethics of sanctuary laws was acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges Thursday in the shooting of Kate Steinle as she strolled with her father on Pier 14 to take in a view of San Francisco Bay. In returning its verdict on the sixth day of deliberations, the San Francisco Superior Court jury found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate guilty of a single lesser charge of being a felon in possession of a gun. He will be sentenced at a later date. Garcia Zarate, a 45-year-old Mexican citizen who was released
Sweet Jesus, Donald Trump doesn´t even understand the Bible´s most important story! At Thursday night´s annual Christmas tree lighting at the White House, the president recounted the birth of Jesus by saying it "begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son." Their baby? Um, care to take a paternity test? As all devout Christians believe, Jesus is not the son of Joseph, but of God. Yes, the future savior was born in Bethlehem during the time of Herod to Mary, the wife of Joseph. [Snip] But he is not the father. He with a capital H
When Defense Attorney Matt Gonzalez and Public Defender Jeff Adachi chose to make the exoneration of their client Jose Ines Garcia Zarate in the death of Kate Steinle an opportunity to attack the president, vice president and attorney general, my immediate thought was these two young lawyers are fools. They should learn when to keep their mouths shut. But no matter -- because the real villains in the Kate Steinle story are the San Francisco politicians who made the rules that prevented ICE from removing the already five-time deported criminal Zarate from the country. These SF pols already had Kate´s
Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough called on President Donald Trump’s cabinet to remove him from office using the 25th Amendment.Partial transcript as follows: SCARBOROUGH: The problem, Mika, is that we are not fine in this country. I said America will be strong. We will survive this. But right now, at this particular moment — and we will get to this in a moment with Richard Haas — we are headed towards a nuclear showdown, most insiders say, Richard has said it matches everything we’ve heard from inside the administration, we are closer to war on the Korean
The National Football League and player representatives came to an agreement on Wednesday evening, that the league would throw $89 million at so-called “social justice” issues. The money represents a desperate attempt by the league to put an end to the constant anti-American protests held during the playing of the national anthem. Though, the agreement does not include a condition that the anthem protests will end. The two parties have agreed in principle that the league will spend the $89 million over a seven-year period on causes dealing with “criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education,” ESPN reported. The
New reporting suggests that former national security adviser Michael Flynn will testify that Donald Trump as a candidate ordered him to make contact with Russian officials. ABC’s Brian Ross, the chief investigative correspondent, said that sources told him Flynn is prepared to testify against Trump and his family. “He has promised full cooperation to the Mueller team,” Ross said, referring to special prosecutor Robert Mueller. “He is prepared to testify, we have been told by a confidant, against President Trump, against others in the Trump family, and others in the White House.” “He is prepared to testify that President
The sexual harassment scandal surrounding Michigan Democrat Rep. John Conyers has shed light on another major scandal: Conyers’ deteriorating mental health, which is said to have been an open secret in Washington and Michigan political circles. That the 88-year-old Conyers, until recently a ranking member on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, is reportedly losing his mental health is emerging as common knowledge among political insiders at the same time that Democrats push Conyers toward resigning. Conyers is accused of serially sexually harassing his female staffers and demanding sexual favors from them, and Democrats have struggled to control the political blowback
Here’s something you don’t hear every day — but an inspector general who was actually appointed by Barack Obama told Tucker Carlson of Fox News that there was “strategic coordination” taking place among the State Department, Campaign Team Hillary Clinton, certain key legal minds and politicos on Capitol Hill, regarding the behind-scenes talk of The Emails. Yes, those emails — the ones that were marked classified and top secret and that were found on Clinton’s private and unsecured email system. Thud. That’s the sound of Democrats’ jaws dropping. From the mouth of former Inspector General Charles McCullough III, as reported by Mediaite: “I’m
Matt Lauer on Thursday apologized to those he has hurt after he was fired from NBC News in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against him. "There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions," Lauer said in a statement that was read on NBC´s "Today" show. "To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. As I am writing this, I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC." Lauer said in the statement that some of
NFL players will pay tribute to the cause of their choice this weekend, through the league’s “My Cause, My Cleats” campaign. Most will wear cleats honoring organizations that fight cancer, or promote literacy. Others, will dedicate their footwear to messages far more personal. Colts LB Anthony Walker will wear a pair of cleats honoring Trayvon Martin, the Miami teenager killed in an altercation with neighborhood watchman George Zimmer in February of 2012: Anthony Walker Jr. ? @__AWalkJr Decided To Honor & Support #TrayvonMartinFoundation For Week 13 #MyCauseMyCleats .
Michael Flynn, who was fired as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser after revelations that he lied about his communications with Russia’s ambassador, is expected to plead guilty Friday morning to lying to federal agents about the contact. The charge against Flynn, 58, adds another prominent defendant to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mueller has already secured indictments against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy, as well as a guilty plea from a junior foreign policy adviser. The single charge is outlined in a criminal information unsealed Friday in a
