Before this story has played out to its conclusion, I will figure out how to turn it into a fine powder and snort it. Ingesting it in dribs and drabs over the course of the day simply isn’t enough. (Snip)History may record that the single most glorious populist triumph of this era was Trump’s DOJ sending Aunt Becky down for 5-10 for handing out fat envelopes to get her dumb kids into their dream school.

It’s disgraceful that in 2019 America, which is literally governed by a reality-show host,....

Paying half a million dollars in bribes is enough to get the Feds´ attention. She is truly stupid if she thought she´d get a slap on the wrist for what she did. She´s not a minority with friends in high places like Smollett or dealing with a local corrupt prosecutor with the same friends.

And her daughter didn´t even want to go to college. When I went, tuition to my state college was 125 a semester. I worked as as a student worker and during the summer and graduated with no debt. I worked two jobs and she worked one to get my daughter through college in the 1980´s and she has no student debt. Now, she is worried to death about her own children and what they may face. I´ve worked at a college for almost 40 years. It´s unsustainable.

I don´t condone what she and her husband did but there is still a great justice divide. You have congress critters who have done a whole lot more damage in stealing hundreds and thousands of dollars with insider trading, famous people Al Sharpton years of not paying his taxes and yet he still walks free as a bird and last and not least Hillary. Whole laundry list of scot free no consequences actions from white collar money laundering, national secret leakin, etc. Yet they got full throttle on an actress and her husband. Yup justice isn´t blind, it is selective.

Ostensibly, we´re worried about equal justice under the law here. Rich, arrogant, famous person thinks she´s better than us, right? So we want to crucify her. Because it´s just not fair. If her dumb Buffy can buy a slot at a "prestigious" university, then why can´t my smart Biff get in on merit?

So we light the torches and rampage into the village seeking this criminal. Meanwhile, there´s a gazillionaire in a pantsuit sitting fat and happy in Chappaqua who´s guilty of crimes against our country that involve the loss of innocent lives, putting our national security at risk, and generally undermining of our Constitution. Her rap sheet includes things like Vince Foster, Whitewater, Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, misogyny against Bill´s gal pals, trying to steal an election through fraud, among others.

Sure, all crimes should be prosecuted if we want to maintain a civil society. But if we´re not prosecuting the ones that actually hurt the average citizen, what difference, at this point, does it make if we prosecute the ones that don´t?

Yeah, lets let some rapists and murderers and gang bangers and drug dealers out of prison to make room for these "dangerous" rich people!!!!

These rich people were pretty evil. But they didn´t cause any physical harm to anyone. They are not a risk in the least to cause physical harm to anyone in the future. So fine them a few million dollars, make them do a few hundred hours of hard and dirty community service, and put them on house arrest when they aren´t out doing their community service!!!

But, for God´s sake, don´t waste a prison cell on them to make some "point" when the evil and violent criminals of this country need that space!!!!!

I stand by #19. A read for context is also helpful, as is a writer’s previous history.

Lori Loughlin is either as airhead as her second daughter Olivia (the elder one seems to be quite different) or she is disingenuous. Probably both. The feds do not bluff.

I wonder if her little Target clothing line “designer” husband, who always walks several paces behind her as she sashays to court, will hang around after all of the dust settles. Her conduct since her indictment has not been very smart.

She is a product of her own theatrical culture in LaLa land, which is apparently totally elitist and views itself above the Rule of Law. While it may be understandable in that communal hollyweird world of fantasy, it must be a shock for them to discover that Lady Justice is indeed blind in America and each individual is equally responsible & accountable to BOTH God and country.

The juvenile excuse that, ´everyone is doing it,´ comes to mind. ...There is no safety in numbers no matter how many are choosing to break the law, as in America each individual makes his/her own choices. That´s what freedom is all about! We do reap what we sow.

Until the money laundering charge was added, here is what she and the others were charged with:

There is no federal statute under the U.S Law that prohibits or regulates any type of private or commercial bribery. There is a way for prosecutors to try people for bribery by using existing laws. Section 1346 of Title 18 can be used by prosecutors, to try people for ‘a scheme or artifice to deprive another of the intangible right to honest services,’ under the mail and wire fraud statutes. [4] Prosecutors have always successfully prosecuted private company employees for breaching a fiduciary duty and taking bribes, under Honest services fraud.


Bribery, when it involves private institutions like many of the universities, is very tricky to prosecute. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

What they did was outrageous. Determining the victims and how many there who can be proved to have been harmed by these people’s actions will be difficult.

First, she committed a crime and should be punished, just like some people in Washington who haven´t been convicted or paid their dues.

She walked into that courtroom almost giddy, like she had bribed the judge too. That could be why people are hating on her. The spoiled daughters should have a stint too to give them some humility.

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy stunned House investigators recently by all but announcing the existence of secret FBI recordings of Trump campaign foreign policy volunteer adviser George Papadopoulos, made in the summer of 2016 by an undercover FBI operation. Gowdy made the revelation in an interview Sunday with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "There are a lot of serious questions that need to be asked" during Attorney General William Barr's investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Gowdy said. Among them: "Where are the transcripts, if any exist, between the informants and the telephone calls to George Papadopoulos?"

The polls were wrong. The pundits were wrong. The party insiders were wrong. The bookies were wrong. I was wrong. Even Burt the psychic croc was wrong. Australia’s dysfunctional, unpopular, conservative government (the Liberal and National parties, currently in coalition, sit on the right in Australian politics) held onto power for a third term in Saturday’s national election. This happened despite the fact that most analysts expected it to lose a large number of seats; despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race; despite a chaotic tenure in office that has seen three leaders since 2016; despite a threadbare

Three years after the twin shocks of President Trump's triumph in the Republican primaries and the narrow win for "Leave" in the Brexit referendum, the evidence has never been stronger that the world has entered an era of anti-liberalism. Later this week, voters across Europe go to the polls to vote in EU parliamentary elections that could deliver a quarter or more of the seats to the continent's right-wing populists and nationalists. Meanwhile, exit polls in India suggest that Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist party will win re-election when results are announced on May 23.

Rotting Trash Piles Sky-High in LA,
Attracting Rats and Raising Concerns of a New Epidemic

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year's record number of flea-borne typhus cases. Even the city's most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA's busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.

Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

Democratic leaders in Congress proved the perils of “jumping the shark” this month. The phrase comes from the 1977 episode of the television comedy “Happy Days” in which one of its leading characters, the “Fonz,” jumped over a shark in a water skiing stunt in swim trunks along with his signature leather jacket. That moment was viewed as a desperate ratings stunt by a dying television series struggling to keep viewers engaged. Today, the phrase has come to define similar instances of desperation. With the many overhyped political moments of the last two years, it is not clear when the partisan shark jump occurred. Soon after the appointment of special counsel

Cohen stood up and yelled for Trump to be impeached during a Democratic Steering and Policy Committee meeting with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), prompting Pelosi to push back saying, "This is not about politics, it's about what's best for the American people," according to Politico. Cohen, who voted to move impeachment proceedings forward in December 2017, also brought up former President Bill Clinton's impeachment proceedings during the committee hearing, saying he faced impeachment "over sex."

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said.

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
