Whatch this firstorm I create here but all this needs to be said. Man someone needs to go around teaching people how to file suits (so easy) and get thousands of people filing suits in every state for every little F##”/ng thing. Bombard tbe courts, overwhelm the enemy on their own turf. Could you imagine slamming your local courts with thousands of law suits every other week. Even if they just dismisd them it would cost the states millions and throw the courts into chaos. People have to fight back, but I do not even know why I bother, none… Read more »

Hell how many of you live near Sacramento? Lets put our differences aside and organize a serious rally at the capital. I do not mean a dozon or two, we need at least 50-100 at least. Do this once a month or once a week. I’m down are any of you???? I do not have the time or money but if we can organize and enough others are willing I will make the time. I do not believe that is how to bring change but if it takes the fight to the enemies doorstep and brings us together in an… Read more »

I do not care what anyone thinks of Kavanaugh, that man joined by Lindsey Graham are heroes to me as they are the first high profile people that have made a stand against the out of their frigging mind legislators and mobs. He is basically being accused of being a sex offender. Them two fought hard and damn well and I only hope I have that courage when my day in court comes up. And that whining that he did and the anger that he showed I was thinking hard about it, I was the same way for weeks if… Read more »

@Mike r – with all due respect in my mind Jeff Flake was the true hero today. Bipartisanship is a lost art and it was great to see somebody step up and demand due diligence before making a very important decision.

Jeff Flake is a RINO.

There, fixed it for ya.

Thumbs up!

Da, Comrade.

Jeff Flake is a RINO. —– He’s certainly at least proven by deed and word that he’s been all about keeping his job. Only after announcing his retirement did he start to speak up. Only after announcing his retirement did he show principle over party. And on Sunday night he proved it in his own words on “60 Minutes.” From a CNN story about it (https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/30/politics/flake-fbi-kavanaugh-investigation/index.html): ***** Hours later, Flake tapped Coons on the shoulder, and the two retreated to a private anteroom. An hour of frantic behind-the-scenes negotiations ensued, ending when Flake emerged and dropped the bombshell that he… Read more »

AJ (October 1, 2018): Interesting way to look at it and I think fairly right. But isn’t it odd to concentrate on Flake? Given that he is now operating based on principle rather than party. Perhaps the focus should be on all of the people who are “remaining” and who will later be running for reelection and who are still putting party before principle? Isn’t that about all of the rest of them? I don’t know. I sick to death of both of the lying Democrat and Republican parties. All awful. I am even more sick of people who can… Read more »

@mike r I kind of agree with you in that I hope he gets appointed do to the gap in time of reporting, to me the statute of limitations is an extremely important factor in our legal system and if you don’t open your mouth right away then you should not open it 10-20-30 years later and expect to be able to destroy somebodies life because you felt the need to let people now know of what a terrible person this person was to you back then but you didn’t want to then. She says she thought he might kill… Read more »

Just FYI. Many states have eliminated statutes of limitations for sex offenses.

You are correct but that is for crimes committed after the enactment of that removal and in my opinion there should be a statute on ALL crimes no matter what it is. I know first hand how it feels to be on the receiving end of threats of “you already been to jail for XXXXX so you better give me what I want or I can tell them anything I want and you”ll go away forever” , I have given my wife my whole back story so when these little gold diggers come to her and try to split us… Read more »

Yep, over 700% increase to the sexual assault hotline since this happened. Already started and they are all claiming it is not unusual for women to come forward many years afterwards and if this dude gets shot down and the courts do not rebut this we are going to get some more major bad precedent that they all say, well this case and that case. I guarantee you if this guy gets confirmed when a case like that comes before him he will be the first to be like WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE after what he is going thru. Bet… Read more »

Twitter is currently in the process of updating its hate speech policy to include a prohibition on language that “dehumanizes” other people by using labels that make others sound less than human. This is an excellent opportunity to help shape policy on one of the largest social media networks in the world. Twitter does NOT ban registrants and we all have an opportunity to offer our feedback to ensure the new Twitter policy is comprehensive and includes bans on words like sex offender, predator, child molester, rapist, pedophile, pervert, deviant, and so on. Right now they are seeking public feedback… Read more »

Excellent Sunny, there’s some proactive activism. Love it and even though I do not use any social media at this point, and have not since my release yet so as not to embed my status in the public square so when I win and get off this crap i can start anew without that forever on the internet, I will do the survey. I will be reading these reports or studies as well to see if I can use them in m my case.. Many scholars have examined the relationship between dehumanization and violence. For example, Susan Benesch has described… Read more »

Sunny, “Twitter does NOT ban registrants.” Not strictly true since many have been thrown off of Twitter for advocating on behalf of “Registrants” and for the thinnest of reasons but usually by being “reported” by legions of organized hysterics who want to wipe Twitter clean of anyone saying anything in support of “sex offenders.” I’m also dubious that banning phrases or words like “sex offender” or “pedophile” are the way for us to advance our cause. I use “sex offender” all of the time on Twitter (always with quotes, btw) and would find it impossible to make the statements I… Read more »

Never thought about it like that, good point. Less big nanny companies controlling what content is allowed in their platforms. Censorship another words.

The phrase “$EX offender” is a weapon used by immoral people. So it has to be avoided. It is hate speech. Same as calling someone the N word or anything similar to that.

If “Registered Person” or “Registered Citizen” is not clear enough, I will typically introduce the term by starting with using “a person who is listed on a $EX Offender Registry”.

My understanding of the new policies is that it will not ban words outright, but will consider context. For example, talking generally about sex offenders or the registry would be acceptable, but making an ad hominem attack against a specific individual or class of people just to denigrate them, would not be acceptable. That is what Twitter is trying to clarify with public feedback right now. I believe a statement like, “Child molestation has been reduced by rehabilitation programs” would be allowed but calling someone a child molester would be prohibited. There is a gray area like, “Watch out for… Read more »

I tend to agree. I might add, if the haters pretty up their language, it just makes it harder to identify who they really are. On the other hand, I can see from Twitter’s perspective, that they may not want to be know for publishing endless threads of insults and verbal farts. In a way, Twitter is kind of a crowd sourced news outlet. They are evolving their product much like the yellow journalism physical newspapers of the past evolved into more professional institutions.

Also, in the early days of newspapers in this country, all manner of speech entered into them. According to an article in Smithsoniam Magazine, the early newspapers were a lot like social media today. When the publishers got more selective of their paper’s content, the dehumanizing talk continued in bars and the club’s. There in the cover of half light and licensed by inebriation, men continued violent talk about women, Irish, African Americans, the opposing party, and that talk was percoeved to be carried back to the home in actual physical violence. That’s why many of the first women’s rights… Read more »

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3363227/New-trial-ordered-Denver-man-imprisoned-28-years.html

Just came across this dandy of a story. Guy has been in prison 28 years for a rape he didn’t commit because she dreamed he did

I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t support the various innocence projects sprouting up across the nation. If someone doesn’t care about the government arrogance responsible for wrongful convictions and executions, they sure as hell don’t care about us. If someone can have no empathy for the innocent their concern is certainly lacking for the guilty.

The ACLU tonight begins a $1 million TV ad campaign declaring/comparing Kavanaugh as a sex offender to Bill Cosby, Clinton and Weinstein. Nevermind that he has never been charged or convicted and Federal Prosecutor Rachel Mitchell has a report yesterday with 12 inconsistencies on why this case would not even meet a “preponderance of the evidence” burden and would not be charged.

The ACLU needs to objectively look beyond the ‘Sex Offender’ label for unbiased justice and truth, especially with the current hysteria.
ACLU: Innocent UNTIL proven guilty, even an accused SO/RSO has those rights…

Thanks for posting this. I’m left uncertain as how this will be decided. Justice Gorsuch was great. He sounds like he will be on our side on this issue. It does sound like some of the justices will be hard to win over on any sex offender issue.

As always, and because Justices are obligated to divilishly (archaic spelling intended) interrogate both parties adversarially (except for Thomas, the Silent, apparently) it is difficult to devine their opinions prospectively. During our side’s arguments, I’m not liking Kagan at all or Breyer very much with Roberts and Alito obviously being predictably bad. We know we can write-off Alito if not Roberts. Sotomayor? Maybe. Gorsuch is a solid in our camp. Kagan is still not seeing the Registry as punishment or any different from any other civil regulation with criminal penalties. I guess retroactivity didn’t come up at all. Everyone’s on… Read more »

“any other civil regulation with criminal penalties.”

Which comparable ones would those be? Examples?

Kennerly,
I can’t wait to hear the audio too. Hearing them speak will tell us more than the transcript. I hope someday they will allow cameras in their court.

@BF:
“[O]ther civil regulation[s] with [possible] criminal penalties”: copyright infringement; contempt of court; failure to appear. There are certainly many more, particularly in government-regulated fields such as medicine, commercial transportation, and/or finance.

@BF

A lot of the financial (civil) regs result in criminal penalties. IMO, a big example is the S&L failures and those behind them. That may not be the best example but I believe it works.

If SCOTUS is 4 – 4, it goes back to prior court’s ruling, right?

Lake County, Yes 4-4 would have no effect on the lower court’s ruling. Would have to be 5-3 in the case of an eight-Justice panel to overturn.

@Notorious DIK (formerly, Kennerly), it will take 5 to overturn regardless of whether it is 8 or 9 justices. Whether 5-3 or 5-4, it still takes 5.

Thanks for posting. I liked Gorsuch’s comments. However, wouldn’t want to read too much into this. I’d love to hear the opinions of several of our venerable posters

Quite the fascinating read…thank you Arthur for posting this link.

Best Wishes, (to us all)

James

My take on the transcript pretty much aligns with what has been said elsewhere. 1. Gorsuch is on our side and has an obvious problem with a law that ensnares so many people (note to Gorsuch: 800,000+); 2. Thomas is on our side by reference; 3. Ginsburg still seems to be having heartburn from Smith regarding people living clean lives yet still being held down by these laws (you go, girl!); 4. Alito is Alito, ’nuff said. Of the remainders, they’re hard to read (figuratively, though at times literally). 5. I did like that Sotomayor referenced looking at legislative history,… Read more »

So, air bnb finally deleted my account and cancelled all my bookings for my upcoming trip next week. Their reasoning was that they found it in their best interest due to public records if I were no longer on their platform.

Luckily I was able to contact where I booked told them I will be paying in cash. They were just as confused as they were prepping the house for us and suddenly gone.

Airbnb is just another company run by anti-American scumbags. Everyone should go out of their way to neutralize them and harm their company by any legal means possible. Watch out for PR problems or legislation that affects them and do what you can to negatively affect them. I think it is wonderful that you went around them. It is probably not very hard to find rentals on Airbnb and then contact the owners directly to go around Airbnb. It is good to give them no money. I will be more than happy to not give them money. If that method… Read more »

This is the email they sent. It’s confusing mostly because I never uploaded my ID for verification and that they can do this without an explanation, while still holding my money. Which I may or may not get back in the 15 days. None of this would be a problem if NY let go. Thank you for uploading your ID for our ID Verification process. Upon review, and given information uncovered pursuant to online public records, we have determined that it is in the best interest of Airbnb, and for the users on our site, to deactivate your account permanently.… Read more »

What a dumbass, limp letter. Simultaneously saying “f you” and “we apologize” and “best regards”. Typical lame people. I’m not sure what documents you would send them since they seemed to give no hint whatsoever what the problem is. However, I would try to waste as much of their time as possible. I would definitely respond. Start nicely and just ask them what the problem is. Tell them that you need to know in order to determine what documents to send. Not sure where all I would go with it but I would certainly try to waste their time. And… Read more »

Pedophile’s Decapitated Corpse Found On Judge’s Doorstep After Bail Hearing In Aurora, Illinois

http://www.thenyherald.com/2018/09/11/pedophiles-decapitated-corpse-found-on-judges-doorstep-after-bail-hearing/

That really is “fake news.” Here’s something about it: “Crosby: The story of a headless pedophile in Aurora was fake. But don’t feel too bad if you fell for it.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/aurora-beacon-news/opinion/ct-abn-crosby-bogus-news-st-0914-story.html
