WNBA star Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in prison after she was found guilty of drug possession and drug smuggling by a Russian judge on Thursday. She was also fined 1 million rubles. Russian prosecutors asked the court to hand Griner a 9.5-year prison sentence. The defense then started its arguments. Griner faces up to 10 years in prison. Griner offered an apology ahead of the sentencing. "I want to apologize to my teammates, my club, my fans and the city of (Yekaterinburg) for my mistake that I made and the embarrassment that I brought on them," she said. "I want to also apologize to my parents, my siblings,

I don’t agree with her politics and her comments about the United States have been repulsive. However, any of you cheering this are shameful. Depriving a human being of their liberty for nine years over this crime is an obscenity.

“I want to apologize to my teammates, my club, my fans and the city of (Yekaterinburg) for my mistake that I made and the embarrassment that I brought on them," she said. "I want to also apologize to my parents, my siblings, the Phoenix Mercury organization back at home, the amazing women of the WNBA, and my amazing spouse back at home." Oookay, I don’t see anything about the racist and homophobic USA nor any new-found respect for the National Anthem. Her mind is gone.

She should be thankful she was not caught in Indonesia. Many foreigners have ended up on death row for drug offenses there. If you believe in the Sovereignty of The United States and do not wish to have the UN or some other non-elected body come in and make laws here, then you have to allow Russia the same privilege to enforce their laws. Most likely in a year or two there will be a prisoner swap.

A nine year all expense paid vacation on the Moskva River, not bad for a former WNBA player. She screwed up thinking she could do anything she wanted outside the US. Unfortunately for her, not everywhere else is like the US. And Lame Duck abandoned her just like he did the Afghanis who worked for us during the last 20 years. How does it feel to hate America and the irony that followed?

Britney is paying the price for ignoring Russia's laws. I'm wondering if she wasn't set up. If she's been playing in Russia for six years, she probably brought dope with her multiple times before with no consequences. If so, why was this time different? Did the Russians want a pawn? Nonetheless, if she hadn't carried drugs, she wouldn't be in the current pickle. I'm hoping her experience will knock some sense into her head and she'll recognize that she is incredibly blessed to be a U.S. citizen.

I read somewhere that Ms. Greiner was born with hermaphrodism at birth (both male and female parts). Her parents made the decision at that time to keep her female parts. That could explain her height, voice inflection, and athletic talents, and are issues not of her own making. Going into Russia with what they consider contraband wasn't a wise choice. She's going to have to pay the piper now, and I'm sure she's already realized that the Russian prison system may be a bit less "inmate-friendly" than those systems in the US and Western countries. And Sleepy Creepy Crooked President Joe's bungling and negotiating in public, not private is only going to extend her stay in those less-than-desirable-conditions while the Russians continue to raise the price for any release.

The proper message to Brittney is thimk! (proper spelling) #18 is correct. In the words of the old joke, she has received a (9 years, ridiculous) sentence of ruru in Russia, although in Indonesia (or Singapore, or elsewhere) it might be death by ruru. With marijuana and its derivatives enjoying quasi-legal (if not wholly legal) status in the USA, it was inevitable that some idiot would take a controlled substance into a country that isn't an ally, which then decided to make an example and a celebrity of the WNBA player. Wrong place, wrong time. Also, #13 may be on to something. If that's a woman, she's certainly got a low voice, a possible basso profondo. No wonder she can score against women. Ted Cassidy, eat your heart out.

Let's see if the prisoner swap now takes place, conviction notwithstanding. The swap would prop Biden up with his base and strengthen his America destroying the agenda. The Russki's benefit without firing a shot. Win-win. I'll also predict some of the usual suspects here will destructively act out in large and small ways, like the Summer of 2020. Whites oppressing blacks will be the justification. You heard it here first.

Re #8, she hates the USA, makes all sorts of false claims of racism when the precise opposite is true for her. She gets extra special treatment for being an obnoxious, rude, hateful black. And she is a pervert, and plays on that to get sympathy and special treatment, too. Nope, she set her nasty self up for this, and she will learn that there are RULES and you have to follow them, even if you are black pervert who can bounce a ball better than the other girls. Making excuses for them just makes them more obnoxious. She needs to suck it up and take responsibility, probably for the first time in her life, excuses and whining and "racism, racism, racism" don't work.

She wasn’t read her rights! Bless her heart. Maybe Brittney, who shuns our national anthem, a symbol of our (horrible, oppressive) country, should know that those Miranda rights Russia did not give her are not universal but come from a U.S. Supreme Court case written by five white men who based their decision on the Fifth Amendment to our Constitution. And I’ll bet she still hates our country. Too bad, so sad.

US readies $1bn weapons package for Ukraine: Report 16 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 8/6/2022 12:40:42 AM Post Reply
The United States is preparing a new $1bn security assistance package for Ukraine, which will include munitions for long-range weapons and armoured medical transport vehicles, according the Reuters news agency. The package would be one of the largest so far and is expected to be announced as early as Monday, three sources briefed on the matter told Reuters. The US has given about $8.8bn in aid to Ukraine since Russia’s invasion on February 24. The officials, speaking to Reuters on the condition of anonymity, said that President Joe Biden had not yet signed the next weapons package, and cautioned that weapons packages can change in value and content before they are signed.

U.S. conspiracy theorist Alex Jones must pay the parents of a 6-year-old boy killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre $45.2 million in punitive damages - on top of $4.1 million in compensatory damages already awarded - for falsely claiming the shooting was a hoax, a Texas jury decided on Friday. Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, separated parents of slain 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, testified that followers of Jones harassed them and sent them death threats for years in the false belief that they were lying about their son's death in the Dec. 14, 2012, shooting that killed 20 children and six staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Republicans lead Democrats on the generic congressional ballot by three points, two points lower than the previous week and seven points lower than the week before that, a Rasmussen Reports poll released Friday showed. While the Republicans look to retake control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections — which are only 95 days away — after being in the minority for roughly four years, the most recent Rasmussen Reports survey showed that 46 percent of likely U.S. voters would elect a Republican, compared to the 43 percent who said they would vote for a Democrat. Thus the Republicans only have a three-point lead, which is two points less

A new Morning Consult Poll shows voters beginning to regain some trust in Democrats on some issues. On topics such as health care, voting rights, COVID-19, energy, and guns Democrats have increased their lead on the question of “Who do you trust” on a particular issue. According to the poll, “Congressional Democrats have an average advantage of 6 percentage points (45% to 39%) over congressional Republicans when voters are asked who they trust to handle a range of 14 issues. That edge has steadily increased since early April, when the two parties were essentially tied on the question.” In truth, all of those issues above are overwhelmed

When WNBA star Brittney Griner was convicted on drug charges Thursday, she was not merely sentenced to nine years in a normal jail or prison. She was given time in a Russian penal colony, which is quite different than a normal correctional facility. Russia's penal colonies are descendants of the notorious Soviet-era gulags where prisoners have been subjected to harsh treatment and poor conditions. Prisoners in the system have been beaten by other inmates, endured torture and forced to watch Russian propaganda for hours every day in what's known as "awareness raising." Following several days of Griner's trial, which stemmed

In February, American basketball star Brittney Griner was arrested at a Moscow airport after attempting to bring cannabis oil into the country, which is illegal according to Russian law. In the almost six months since being apprehended, Griner has lingered in a less-than-comfortable prison cell. On Thursday, the legal proceedings of the case came to a close when a Russian court delivered a guilty verdict, followed by a harsh sentence of nine years behind bars. None of Thursday’s developments should have come as a surprise to anyone. As we’ve noted before, 99% of all Russian prosecutions end with a guilty verdict, and with a maximum available sentence of ten years,

Former Vice President Mike Pence continues to undermine President Trump’s efforts to get conservative warriors elected to office.

Beyond Meat’s sales have fizzled rather than sizzled after fast-food trials of its product had customers asking, “Where’s the beef?” McDonald’s is the latest fast-food giant to complete a trial of a Beyond Meat plant-based product (the McPlant burger). JPMorgan Chase & Co. analyst Ken Goldman released a market research note that indicated the product was being broadly discontinued in the U.S. last Thursday. The two companies signed a three-year global distribution deal in 2021.(Snip)Other trials at Panda Express and Yum!
