Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell Denies OJ Simpson’s New Trail & Upholds His 2008 Conviction on Kidnapping & Armed Robbery
OJ SIMPSON DENIED … IT’S TRUE, WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, STAYS IN VEGAS AND SO DOES OJ IN PRISON!!!
Clark County, Nevada District Judge Linda Marie Bell has denied O.J. Simpson’s appeal for a new trial. In upholding his 2008 conviction for kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges the judge said that Simpson was denied on “All grounds in the petition lack merit.” Simpson’s “non-dream” legal team’s had asked for a new trial on 22 specific grounds related to his trial and appeal. However, Judge Linda Marie Bell’s 101 page, point-by-point-by-point ruling denied the “Juice” as she stated, “Given the overwhelming amount of evidence, neither the errors in this case, nor the errors collectively, cause this court to question the validity of Mr. Simpson’s conviction.”
A judge in Las Vegas rejected O.J. Simpson’s bid for a new trial on Tuesday, dashing the former football star’s bid for freedom based on the claim that his original lawyer botched his armed robbery and kidnapping trial in Las Vegas more than five years ago.
“All grounds in the petition lack merit and, consequently, are denied,” Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell said.
Simpson lawyer Patricia Palm said she wanted to speak to Simpson before commenting on the decision. Ozzie Fumo, her co-counsel in the effort, said he expected they would appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court.

OJ Simpson is currently serving 9 to 33 years on his 2008 conviction of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges in the 2007 Las Vegas incident where Simpson and others were arrested in bizarre Vegas memorabilia heist. Karma baby!
Look for O J and his defense team to appeal this decision in federal court next. As reported at the Las Vegas Sun, Simpson’s attorney Ozzie Fumo said, “This is just the first step and we are going to Nevada Supreme Court and Mr. Simpson will be vindicated when this is done. We’re not giving up this fight and it’s not over.” Note to O J defense team, its over!
Isn’t it amazing how some of these folks just cannot seem to go gentle into that good night and have to put themselves in the media light. Even serving time and being irrelevant, this narcissist still gets PR. Interestingly enough, Dana Pretzer on Scared Monkeys radio was discussing this phenomenon with Dr. Clint VanZandt of those like O J Simpson and George Zimmerman just cannot seem to go away.
NY Times Reports: The Obama Administration Doesn’t Want You to Call ObamaCare “Redistribution” … Even Though It Is And They Know(Knew) It
What’s in a word, except everything.
The New York Times is reporting that Barack Obama and his administration does not want you to call Obamacare the “R” word. Not racism, but “REDISTRIBUTION”. Just as Barack Obama and Democrats have suddenly distanced themselves from calling Obama’s signature piece of legislation Obamacare as it has become toxic. They also do not want you to call Obamacare a redistribution of wealth, when it obviously is. America, how else do you think that so many millions of uninsured poor people were going to miraculously get insurance, from the healthcare fairy? The fact of the matter is, that they knew it all along and demonized Republicans when they stated the truth. Now suddenly millions of Americans don’t like it when the redistribution of wealth, the money grab is not just from the rich, but from the middle class as well. We said a long time ago, be very careful what Obama and his band of socialist define as rich, it might just be you.
Rebecca M. Blank was a top candidate in 2011 to lead President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, but then the White House turned up something politically dangerous.
“A commitment to economic justice necessarily implies a commitment to the redistribution of economic resources, so that the poor and the dispossessed are more fully included in the economic system,” Ms. Blank, a noted poverty researcher, wrote in 1992. With advisers wary of airing those views in a nomination fight, Mr. Obama passed over Ms. Blank, then a top Commerce Department official and now the chancellor of the University of Wisconsin. Instead he chose Alan Krueger, a Princeton economist.
“Redistribution is a loaded word that conjures up all sorts of unfairness in people’s minds,” said William M. Daley, who was Mr. Obama’s chief of staff at the time. Republicans wield it “as a hammer” against Democrats, he said, adding, “It’s a word that, in the political world, you just don’t use.”
These days the word is particularly toxic at the White House, where it has been hidden away to make the Affordable Care Act more palatable to the public and less a target for Republicans, who have long accused Democrats of seeking “socialized medicine.” But the redistribution of wealth has always been a central feature of the law and lies at the heart of the insurance market disruptions driving political attacks this fall.
“Americans want a fair and fixed insurance market,” said Jonathan Gruber, a health economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who advised Mr. Obama’s team as it designed the law. “You cannot have that without some redistribution away from a small number of people.”
The National Review On-line has 8 takeaways from the NYT article, here are a few:
- The White House intentionally hid Obamacare’s redistributive goals.
- Policy experts knew all along but didn’t tell the public.
- David Axelrod blames American political culture for Obama’s needing to lie in the first place
- Republican charges Obama feels must be deflected by disguising the truth: redistribution, socialized medicine, redistributor-in-chief, spreading the wealth around, closet socialist. (Read the rest of the takeaways HERE)
Make no mistake about it America, Barack Obama and Democrats lied to you and it was most certainly intentional. Their entire model of Obamacare is based on the redistribution of wealth and bringing others up while taking you down. That’s what socialists deem fair.

In Malaysia, where we think this happened, thieves are extremely brazen and apparently very careless.
Today’s target was a woman that they expected would not put up any kind of a fight. They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
Well, this girl is about to serve it up hot. I bet they never saw this coming!
Hmm, was this a real attack or was the video part of Crime Awareness in Malaysia?
Don’t Mess with 92 Year Old Women From Texas … Opal Phelps Kicks Would be Home Invader/Robber in the Face
DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS …
This might just be the feel good story of the week. 92 year old Opal Phelps is the hero of the week. Opal was awakened in her bedroom by a masked thief in her Jasper County, TX home Monday, but was not intimidated. Instead she was defiant. The home invader then asked for $20, she informed him she didn’t have any money and was unaware of what she did with her purse. The thief then instructed her to put on her shoes. Because her shoes are hard to get on, that’s when the feisty senior citizen took her other foot and kicked the masked man right in the face. GOOD FOR YOU OPAL!!!
The senior citizen did not give in to the thief’s demands. When he asked for $20, she informed him she didn’t have any money and was unaware of what she did with her purse.
He then instructed her to put on her shoes.
“He had a hold of my leg trying to put them shoes on, and they hard to get on, and I just took my other foot and kicked him right in the face,” Phelps said.
She had a Life Alert monitor on her nightstand and when the intruder grabbed it, she hit the button. The man took off, but he did get away with a gun she had near her bed.
She was defiant to the end.
One would think that was defiant enough by Opal Phelps, but it gets even better. Opal told the police, “I’m going to stay here. I was getting me another gun.” Phelps then says, ” … I’m going to use it next time I think.”
Police are still looking for the thief.

19 Year Old Johnny Calderon Jr & 18 Year Old Gerald Allen Get Their Butts Kicked After Attempting to Rob Two University of Virginia Students at Gunpoint in Charlottesville, VA
Win one for the good guys … Crime does not pay and in some cases in gets your butt whooped!!!
Some things just bring a smile to one’s face, this is one of them.
The pics above are not of the victims of the attempted robbery, but instead the two would-be thug robbers after they got their two butts whooped by their victims. 19 year old Johnny Calderon Jr and 18 year old Gerald Allen. It turns out that these two punks picked the wrong people to rob. When the police arrived to the scene, had beaten up and detained the two suspects. These two punks just lost their street cred card.
We will probably hear later that the two thug robbers will sue for the injuries they sustained why trying to commit a crime. In this day and age, why does that not seem out of the realm of possibility?
Wikileaks Leaker Bradley Manning Convicted of 5 Charges of Espionage & Theft, Computer Fraud … But Not Guilty of Aiding Enemy (Update: WikiLeaks Blasts Obama)
A military judge has Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was convicted five espionage counts, five theft charges, a computer fraud charge and other military infractions, but found Manning not guilty on the greater charge of aiding the enemy. Even though, convicted of several lesser charges could carry a maximum of a 136 year prison sentence. Obviously the information that Manning released through WikiLeaks aided the enemy as some of it was found in Bin Laden’s complex when he was killed. This issue was where Manning’s intent was to aid the enemy, not whether it actually did. It is hard to believe that it some one would not think that the release of such classified information would not aid the enemy, but it all comes back to intent.
A military judge acquitted Army Pfc. Bradley Manning on Tuesday of aiding the enemy, but convicted him of violations of the Espionage Act for turning over a trove of classified data to the website WikiLeaks, in a case where the soldier has been portrayed variously as a traitor and as a whistle-blower.
The verdict by the judge, Col. Denise Lind, dismissed the prosecution’s argument that Manning released documents — in the largest leak of classified information in U.S. history — that he knew would end up in the hands of al Qaeda. The verdict also found Manning not guilty of unauthorized possession of information relating to national defense.
The U.S. Army soldier charged with providing troves of government documents to WikiLeaks was found not guilty Tuesday of aiding the enemy, the top charge in his 21-count indictment that could have carried a life sentence, however, he was convicted of several lesser charges that can carry a 128-year prison sentence.
Prosecutors had to prove Army Pfc. Bradley Manning had “a general evil intent” and knew the classified material would be seen by the terrorist group Al Qaeda. Legal experts said an aiding-the- enemy conviction could set a precedent because Manning did not directly give the classified material to Al Qaeda.
The judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, deliberated for about 16 hours over three days before reaching her decision in the case.
Manning was convicted of five espionage counts, five theft charges, a computer fraud charge and other military infractions. The sentencing phase of his trial is scheduled to begin Wednesday at 9:30 a.m., and will likely go on for several weeks.
Legal Insurrection has a list of all counts and whether manning was guilty or not guilty.
Sentencing for Manning on his convictions of espionage will begin tomorrow at 9:30 AM.
UPDATE I: WikiLeaks blasts Barack Obama and the “Dangerous national security extremism from the Obama administration.”
Pittsburgh Steelers’ OT Mike Adams Stabbed During Robbery Attempt of his Truck at his Home … Expected to Make Full Recovery
NFL.com is reporting that Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive tackle, Mike Adams, has been stabbed during an attempted robbery of his truck at his home. Adams was stabbed after confronting three assailants who allegedly tried to steal his truck. According to reports, Adams was stabbed in the stomach; however, is expected to make a full recovery. According to the Steelers, the second year tackle, who was the team’s rookie of the year in 2012, was recovering but remained hospitalized. As reported at the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, one of the robbers dropped a cell phone, which police had recovered.
NFL.com’s Aditi Kinkhabwala spoke with Adams’ agent, Eric Metz, who said three assailants allegedly tried to steal Mike Adams’ truck from in front of his home. Metz said Adams told him he gave chase even after being stabbed. Adams had just left some friends a few minutes before and was alone.
No vital organs were affected, but the stomach injury did necessitate surgery. Adams will be sidelined six to eight weeks, but Metz says Adams definitely will be ready for training camp.
Pittsburgh police did not immediately respond to a request for more information by NFL.com. Metz said told the Post-Gazette that one of the robbers dropped a cell phone, which police had recovered. UPMC Mercy, where Adams was reportedly treated, would not comment on his status.
Mike Adams posted this on his Twitter account at 11:28 AM: ”I have an angel lookin’ out for me! I’ll be ok. Just gotta fight to get back harder than ever.”
Martin Luther King Jr. High School Womans Basketball Coach With Conceal Pistol License Shoots Attackers Protecting Two Players, Wounds One Thug, Kills the Other
This is the reason why Americans have a Second Amendment right to bear arms … to protect one’s self against thugs and a thug-like government.
A woman’s basketball coach at Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Detroit. Michigan shot two would be attackers with his conceal license hand gun. The coach protected himself and two other female basketball players who he was walking to their car in the school parking lot from two thugs. One of the attackers pulled a gun and grabbed the coach. The 70 year old coach, who had a conceal permit, pulled his gun and shot the two punks. He wounded one and killed the other. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women’s basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.
Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.
You will never hear Obama, his minions or the national MSM touting such acts of defense by an American using their Second Amendment right to bear arms.
In an Obama, anti-gun world, the two thugs would have robbed these three victims, possibly killed them and done God knows what to the two females. All of this would have taken place before police could have ever been called to the scene. One which would have been a crime scene. Instead, in this case Americans took it upon their own to protect themselves and not be made victims. This is why we do not depend on government for self-protection.
Don’t do the crime, if you can’t do the time no matter at what age.
A trio of 13 year old boys have been arrested and are facing robbery charges in connection with the armed robbery of a Walgreens in Wisconsin. What were they trying to steal … condoms and candy of course. Good grief. What a future these three boys have. According to police, each of the three boys were booked into Madison’s Juvenile Reception Center on a multitude of charges, including armed robbery, retail theft, and carrying a concealed weapon.
Cops reported that the boys, whose names were withheld due to their ages, were confronted by a manager when he spotted them trying to boost the candy. After following the trio outside the Walgreens, the man told police, “at least two, and maybe all three, of the boys brandished knives.”
Additionally, one of the teens threw a stolen $15 package of condoms at the store manager, while another boy shouted, “Don’t you call the (expletive) police!”
