Jessica Chambers case: Jurors deliberating the fate of Quinton Tellis

Via Greg "With all the “fake news” reporting on the “fake crime”, this just slips away."

 Defendant Quinton Tellis (middle) looks on as the jury goes to deliberate his case, as his defense attorneys Alton Peterson (left) and Darla Palmer (right) confer on the sixth day of his retrial in Batesville, Mississippi on Sunday, September 30, 2018. Tellis is charged with burning 19-year-old Jessica Chambers to death almost three years ago on Dec. 6, 2014. Tellis has pleaded not guilty to the murder.

Jurors in Quinton Tellis' capital murder decided to resume deliberations Monday after 4½ hours spent Sunday behind closed doors weighing the evidence.

The jury from Oktibbeha County began deliberations at 2:35 p.m. Sunday following six days of testimony in a second trial nearly a year after the first that ended in a hung jury. Their work began following testimony in the morning from three defense witnesses, a prosecution rebuttal witness and roughly two hours of closing arguments from the two sides.

The judge called jurors into court for a progress report shortly before 7. The forewoman said they’re making progress but need ”a little more time.”

Dinner was ordered as jurors continued deliberations. 

Deliberations continued until around 7:30 p.m. and are set to resume at 9 a.m. Monday.

Can American public life get any crazier?  Get any more circus-like?  Any more gladiatorial combat-like?   It seems that all we see and read about these days are accusations, investigations, confrontations—and, as Brett Kavanaugh put it, “character assassinations.” 

Welcome to the Jungle

Indeed, the fight over Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination provides a snapshot of the national maelstrom.   As Kavanaugh said in his September 28 hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, “This has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit . . . My family and my name have been totally and permanently destroyed . . . This confirmation process has become a national disgrace.”

Newt Gingrich: Blue wave of liberal cash from California and New York flooding Georgia governor's race

Image result for commie vote no Stacey Abrams

You’ve probably heard a lot about the supposed blue wave the political elite are predicting for the election cycle. I’m confident Republicans will keep control of the House and the Senate, but a different kind of blue wave is currently washing across several states.

It’s a blue wave of liberal funding.

A massive flow of money from liberal donors in California and New York is pouring into traditionally Republican states and districts. We first saw this blue wave of cash during the special elections held to replace the Congressmen and Senators who were appointed to the Trump Administration. The most notable was the race between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff in my old district, the 6th District of Georgia.

Flake is incredibly nauseating and now it is clear why he is overwhelmingly rejected in his home state; so much so, at (18%) approval, that he, with ZERO chance of reelection, was effectively forced to resign at the end of this term.

Now, as you can see in the linked article, his treachery last week is being rewarded by his new 'fans."

They would destroy any man you know if its serves their radical lawless political ends.

If you're a woman with a son, a father, a husband, an uncle, even a close male friend, realize that the the same leftist locomotive used to bully and run over a fine man like Judge Kavanaugh can be used against any of them, simply because of their genetic chromosomal arrangement.

Radical feminism is a cancer blighting our nation and women, like men, should resoundingly reject it and stand up for the rights of ALL persons, of guaranteed equality among all individual citizens.and most importantly for women, the rule of law, which is the only thing that universally prevents men from 'owning' women as they still do in some cultures and nations where men are less generous of the sharing the power they have by virtue of their physical strength. 

Men, wake up and vote for the rule of law that protects ALL men, ALL women and ALL those presently uncertain of their gender.

10 Red Flags About Sexual Assault, From an Employment Lawyer

Via Travis


 

This morning the Federalist published an excellent analysis that exposes 10 red flags about sexual assault allegations that everyone should know.

When the complaint is “he said/she said,” we should not helplessly acquiesce to coin-flip justice that picks winners.

To Secure Perpetual Ascendancy to the Republican Party

 Image result for Radical Thaddeus Stevens

Radical Thaddeus Stevens of Pennsylvania saw the defeated South not as Americans, but simply “foreign enemies subject under international law to the will of the conqueror . . .” He also contemplated executing the South’s leaders and confiscating their property as well as that of all who supported the independence of the American South. He was anxious to pass radical reconstruction amendments for purely partisan reasons – to disenfranchise white men in the South while enfranchising black men who could be counted upon to ensure the ascendancy of the Republican Party. This had to be accomplished while the military ruled the South, and before civilian courts were reinstated.
Bernhard Thuersam, www.Circa1865.org   The Great American Political Divide

To Secure Perpetual Ascendancy to the Republican Party

“The day after Lincoln’s death, Ben Butler was appointed Secretary of State. That was a clear omen; he was the Northern general who ordered his troops at New Orleans in 1862 to treat as common prostitutes any white woman there who “by word, gesture or movement insulted or showed contempt” for them.

Outside the government, real power in the Republican Party passed to Thaddeus Stevens, a dying and malignant man. Club-footed, bald but bewigged, of indeterminate origins, clamant for blood and ruin, he was of the type of Marat, Goebbels, Dzherzinsky or Szameuly. Stevens pointed the way: “Hang the leaders, crush the South, arm the Negroes, confiscate the land.”

The vote should be taken from the whites and given to the Negroes. Attacking “racial discrimination” he forced through Congress a bill “establishing for the security of the colored races safeguards which went infinitely beyond what the government has ever provided for the white race.” (President Lincoln’s successor, Mr. [Andrew] Johnson, vetoed this bill and narrowly escaped arrest at General Butler’s demand).

From the Negro-less North these white men raved for the extermination of the Southern whites. They tried to suspend trial by jury and, when the Supreme Court resisted, to pack this with compliant judges (President [Franklin] Roosevelt was the next to try that).

When the victorious General Grant became president the military commander in Louisiana, General Sheridan, telegraphed asking him to declare the whites there “banditti,” saying “no further action need be taken except that which will devolve on me.”

The real aim of all this was, as Stevens said, “to secure the perpetual ascendancy to the Republican Party.”

Atlanta Compared to Warsaw and Budapest

Image result for Far and Wide, Douglas Reed, CPA Books, 1951,
Reed gives a record of his travels in the United States. With unusual flair and uncanny prophetic insight, Reed takes us on a journey of the historical and political side of America. So controversial was this book on Communism and Zionism that it sent the author into indefinite retirement and forced his publisher out of business.

Author Douglas Reed writes of the South’s defeat and radical Republican rule that “The wonder is that the South ever lifted itself from that prostration, and by its own bootstraps.” And Truslow Adams said of the twelve years of postwar reconstruction that “There is no parallel for the situation in the history of modern civilized nations, and it is almost incredible that it happened in our own country.”
Bernhard Thuersam, www.Circa1865.org  The Great American Political Divide

Atlanta Compared to Warsaw and Budapest

“So strong is the memory of what the Republicans did after the war that Southerners still automatically vote Democratic. The most their representatives can do, when they reach Congress, is somewhat to retard the new campaign against the South; on the whole they promote the aim of the new immigration to “take over the future of America.”

The clear trail from the Civil War to the present [1951] was the first of my surprises in America. Like most Europeans, probably, I was ignorant of that war and when I studied it felt like an archaeologist who finds the original of the Communist Manifesto in Greek ruins.

What went with that wind was more than the political power of the South; what came with the new one was the enslavement of white men by Soviet methods. Only the particular spirit of the South prevented that condition from becoming permanent.

“That the Southern people were put to the torture is vaguely understood” (wrote Mr. Claude G. Bowers in 1929 in The Tragic Era), “but even historians have shrunk from the unhappy task of showing us the torture chambers . . . It is impossible to grasp the real significance of the revolutionary proceedings of the rugged conspirators working out the policies of Thaddeus Stevens without making many journeys among the Southern people and seeing with our own eyes the indignities to which they were subjected.”

The key-words are “revolutionary” and “conspirators” and they fit today’s situation like a glove. That the North, with its newly-discovered gold, growing industry, command of the sea and increasing population would win that war was plain to clear heads in the South from the start, and did not deter them from a war which, they believed, had to be fought. The way to the South was opened to persons recognizable today as the revolutionary conspirators we know as Communists.

Of the twelve years that followed, the miracle is that the South survived. Mr. John Gunther . . . says, “If you read the history of those days . . . Atlanta on the 1870s must have startingly resembled Warsaw or Budapest under the Nazis in the 1940s . . . Chopping up the South and ruling it by an absolute dictatorship of the military, while every kind of economic and social depredation was not only allowed but encouraged, is so strikingly like what is going on in Germany at present that the imagination staggers.

Slightly different comparisons might be more correct. The sufferings of the South compare more closely with those of Budapest, Warsaw and all of Eastern Europe under the communists after the 1939-1945 war ended than even under the Nazis in 1940.”

Kavanaugh hearing is what Washington will look like if Democrats take back power

 FILE - In this Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018 file photo made with a slow shutter speed and a zoom lens, President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, for the third day of his confirmation hearing.

 They have forever ruined the confirmation process of the United States Senate.

The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has taught us a lot about those on the left – namely that they seek to win at any cost, no matter the reputations destroyed, the lives forever changed, or the damage done to the constitutionally mandated confirmation process.

Make no mistake. The lives of Professor Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh will never be the same. Both of their families have received death threats. Both had to reveal intimately personal details before the American public. And both were effectively used as pawns in a sad, avoidable Democratic chess game.

As with the first allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, his second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, levels a claim of sexual abuse supposedly witnessed by others.

As to why this accuser came forward, Ronan Farrow, co-author of the New Yorker piece that broke the story, said: “She came forward because Senate Democrats came looking for this claim. She did not flag this for those Democrats. This came to the attention of people on the Hill independently, and it’s really cornered her into an awkward position. That’s why she took the time to think about this carefully. She said, point-blank, ‘I don’t want to ruin anyone’s life,’ but she feels this is a serious claim. She considers her own memories credible, and she felt it was important that she tell her story before others did without her consent, because so many people on the Hill were looking at this story.”

Ramirez claims that Kavanaugh sexually confronted her at Yale. According to the New Yorker: “In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney,

Big Conspiracy: Electing a New Population

 
In my essay The Big Conspiracy: Introduction I introduced a concept, inspired by the phrase “the Big Lie” as mastered by Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Propaganda Minister, who wrote:
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."

It’s hard to believe that just two short years ago, our economy was limping along with no sign of a massive boom around the corner.
