Original Article

A federal judge on Tuesday refused to delay Roger Stone's sentencing amid the fallout over the Trump administration's decision to intervene in the case against the president's longtime ally. The sentencing will move forward on Thursday at its originally scheduled time, the judge said, despite a new effort from Stone's defense team to get a new trial. "I think that delaying this sentence would not be a prudent thing to do under all of the circumstances," U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee, said during a telephone conference with the two sides.

I vote to impeach her. Case should have been thrown out of court due to mishandling by government lawyers.

This judge is an ultra-left nutter. It looks like Trump may have to pardon him - or let him rot in the federal pokey for nine years for "lying," which hardly seems unusual, nor even unseemly, in Washington these days. The way Roger Stone was arrested (at 5:00 AM with a CNN van conveniently and suspiciously on hand to capture every moment to help ruin a 69-year-old´s Golfen Years. Disgusting.

This judge actually believes that she has the final say... Friday morning she'll see things a bit differently. (I hope for an immediate commutation).

The judiciary is broken. There may be some fine honest judges but far too many are sitting on the bench with allegiance to their progressive dogma instead of allegiance to the United States Constitution. Many seem to have a god syndrome and should be held accountable for their partisan decisions. I beg to differ with Chief Justice Roberts on that point. Judges bring their personal bias to the job everyday. They would rather be lauded by their peers than stand on principle and some just relish their roles as rogues. Integrity is in short supply in every profession but this particular one requires it more than most. From what I have seen from this Judge she is more interested in pleasing her fellow travelers than actually delivering fair decisions. It would be sweet to have the President commute Stone’s sentence or even pardon him for no other reason than take this little miss down a peg or two. This, I realize, is not a valid reason to do it, but it would put a smile on many faces.

I'd love to see Trump pardon or commute the sentences of ALL the cases of imperial judges like Amy Berman Jackson, just to make a point. Neuter them. Or, in her case, spay.

To the judge, I guess, this case is of such a great importance, that it can't be delayed any longer! Who, in D.C., doesn't lie?

Obama judge Amy Bermain-Jackson is notorious for assigning Paul Manafort more time (9 months) in solitary confinement than all previous assignments combined in US History for someone not yet convicted of anything. Somehow, I don't believe she will give Roger Stone a fair shake either.

Have to give credit to the dems. They don't hesitate one bit when making decisions. Perhaps Trump can appoint 200 more judges to correct the justice system.

i will bet that Trump will not pardon Stone until after all the appeals have played out. IMO, there is a high probability that this will be overturned on appeal due to the juror's obvious misbehavior and obvious bias. That should get at least a new trial.

Michael Bloomberg had a lot of bad moments in his first debate as a Democratic candidate for president. He had little to say when Elizabeth Warren slammed him for having called some women, at various times in the past, "fat broads" and "horse-faced lesbians." He seemed conflicted about stop-and-frisk. He was weak when confronted with his practice of making some women who worked for him sign non-disclosure agreements. But even with all that, Bloomberg saved the worst for last. It came after the fighting ended and NBC moderators asked for closing statements. If there were a time for Bloomberg to offer a vision for the country,

Plausible Scenarios for Global Warming 4 replies

Judith Curry constructs an interesting global warming analysis by beginning with today’s climate as a baseline, and assessing the next 30 years, from 2020 to 2050: In the midst of all the angst about 1.5oC or 2.0oC warming or more, as defined relative to some mythical time when climate was alleged to be ‘stable’ and (relatively) uninfluenced by humans, we lose sight of the fact that we have a better baseline period – now. One advantage of using ‘now’ as a baseline for future climate change is that we have good observations to describe the climate of ‘now’. For this purpose, at least, Curry accepts the assumption

Journalists began to freak out Wednesday evening after President Donald Trump named U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to be the next acting director of national intelligence. Even before Trump confirmed the position in a series of tweets Wednesday, the media began to question the decision. CNN claimed he would not be nominated beyond acting status because “there is no way he could get confirmed” by the Senate. Following the official announcement, journalists flooded social media with negative opinions about Trump’s pick. “Another slap in the face to my former intel colleagues,” NBC national security and intelligence analyst Ned Price tweeted.

The Democrats’ Doom Loop 4 replies

It’s still early, but the Democratic Party nomination process reminds me of Yogi Berra’s line about center field at Yankee stadium: “It gets late early out there.” It’s already late for the Democrats, and it is becoming clear that the Democrats are doomed this year. At the debate tomorrow night, Bloomberg is going to be the big target because he’s got the means to challenge everybody. The big beneficiary will be Bernie Sanders. Even though he is pulling away in the polls, I doubt the other candidates have the wit or ability to shoot at two targets at once. Expect Bernie’s surge to continue. Bernie is a sure loser in November.

Video of Mike Bloomberg belittling farmers surfaced this week. His campaign team, which is spending money furiously trying to purchase a foothold in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, has treated it mostly as a distraction. It may do much more damage than they expect because of what it says about their candidate. The clip (start here at about the 42:00 mark) was from 2016, when Bloomberg was still a registered independent, but only technically. The former Republican mayor of New York City endorsed Hillary Clinton that year and delivered a speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Last week, Buttigieg penned an op-ed in a South Carolina newspaper "The State" promoting his "Frederick Douglass Plan," which he describes is "a comprehensive investment in the empowerment of Black America" that was developed with the help of black activists and business leaders. "That begins with entrepreneurship, and our campaign has proudly partnered with local businesses like Diane’s Kitchen in Chester, Atlantis Restaurant in Moncks Corner and the Fair Deal Grocery on Charleston’s Eastside," Buttigieg wrote.

Witnesses, military and law-enforcement experts, historians, and activists are divided on whether the shooting was justified (that's a discussion for another day), but it appears that Kent State is going all-in on pouring salt in the wounds of America's Vietnam veterans.
