Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, Wisconsin Girls Ruled Competent to Stand Trial in Slenderman Stabbing Case
SLENDERMAN STABBING CASE … DON’T DO THE CRIME, IF YOU CAN’T DO THE TIME.
Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren has ruled that two Wisconsin girls, Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, are competent to stand trial in the “Slenderman” stabbing case. The two girls, who were 12 years old at the time of the crime, were charged as adults with first-degree attempted homicide in the attack on their classmate the morning after a sleepover in May in Waukesha, WI. They stabbed their victim 19 times in an attempt to impress Slenderman, a tall, online bogeyman that they insisted was real. The victim survived the attack.
Two Wisconsin girls accused of luring a classmate into the woods and repeatedly stabbing her to please a fictional Internet character named Slenderman are competent to stand trial, a judge ruled on Thursday.
Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, both 12 at the time, were charged as adults with first-degree attempted homicide in the attack on their classmate the morning after a sleepover in May in Waukesha, a suburb west of Milwaukee.
The girls told investigators they attacked their classmate to impress Slenderman, a tall, online bogeyman that they insisted was real, according to a criminal complaint.
Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren ruled Weier competent to stand trial after hearing testimony from a psychiatrist called by the state.
Prosecutors have charged both girls with attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the attack in May in Waukesha, Wisconsen. They say the girls plotted for months to kill classmate Payton Leutner, luring her to a wooded park after a sleepover and stabbing her 19 times. After her attackers left, Leutner crawled through the woods to a sidewalk where a bicyclist found her and called 911. The girls could be sentenced to up to 60 years in prison if convicted of attempted homicide as adults. However, they could be held until age 25 if convicted as juveniles.
Hollywood Producer Scott Rudin Apologizes For Racially Insensitive Comments that Surfaced in Hacked E-mail Exchange With Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman Amy Pascal
LIBERAL DOUBLE STANDARD? IF THESE TWO WERE REPUBLICANS “RACIALLY INSENSITIVE” WOULD HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO “RACIST” …
Oops, Wanna get away? It would appear that the cyber-attack on Sony has left many “hacked-off” and embarrassed. Hollywood producer Scott Rudin has issued a public apology for the racially insensitive comments he made of hacked private e-mails between him and Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Amy Pascal. Just an apology, you mean the PC police and MSM did not go after their jobs? Amy Pascal apologizes for her emails as well.
Producer Scott Rudin has issued a public apology for the racially insensitive comments that surfaced last night in an exchange of hacked private e-mails between him and Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Amy Pascal. Joking references they made to black-themed films that President Barack Obama might like were not meant for public consumption, but they are hard to defend in the harsh light of a public forum, without context. Rudin made the point in this morning’s New York Times about this hacking breach was a criminal act, when he was asked about other hacked e-mails between the producer and Pascal referencing the movie on Apple’s Steve Jobs. Here, Rudin said he simply wanted to apologize.
The hacked emails in question came before Pascal attended a breakfast in November 2013 in Hollywood with Barack Obama and other big Hollywood names hosted by DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg.
“What should I ask the president at this stupid Jeffrey breakfast?” Pascal wrote.
“Would he like to finance some movies.” Rudin responded.
“I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?” Pascal wrote.
Rudin replied, “12 YEARS,” before Pascal and he suggested other films created by and starring African Americans, “Or the butler. Or think like a man? [sic]”
“Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart,” Rudin wrote.
Hours after Rev. Al Sharpton released a statement comparing her to disgraced L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal revealed in a Q&A interview with Deadline’s Mike Fleming, Jr. that she has spoken to Sharpton on the phone, saying, “I know I screwed up.”
Sharpton’s condemnation of Pascal came after an email exchange between the Sony exec and movie producer Scott Rudin leaked as part of the larger cyber-attack on Sony Pictures from a possibly-North Korean-connected group. In the conversation, Pascal and Rudin joked about the types of movies President Barack Obama likes, with clear racial overtones.
IRSGATE: IRS Inspector General Tells Congress They Have Found as Many as 30,000 of Lois Lerner Supposedly Irretrievable, Missing Emails
Hey Lois Lerner … YOU GOT MAIL!!!
IRS investigators have informed Congress that they have located as many as 30,000 of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails. The emails that were said have been permanently lost after a convenient hard drive crash of her computer. Remember when John Koskinen, the new IRS commissioner, testified under oath to Congress on June 20th the emails had been irretrievably lost. Hmm, I guess not so much, eh? Where were those found? The inspector general discovered the potential emails among 744 disaster recovery tapes that backup IRS systems. Just where everyone said they would be. However, why had the IRS not found her emails sooner? Judicial Watch announced earlier this month that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) admitted to the court that it failed to search any of the IRS standard computer systems for the “missing” emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials.
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THIS SCANDAL IS NOT OVER, ESPECIALLY WITH THE GOP TAKING CONTROL OF THE SENATE NEXT YEAR.
The IRS’s inspector general has told Congress that it may have discovered as many as 30,000 of the lost Lois G. Lerner emails, despite the IRS’s repeated insistence both in testimony to both Capitol Hill and federal courts that they were beyond recovery, congressional committees said Friday.
Investigators are now trying to figure out if they can to the data in a readable format — a process that could take weeks, according to a congressional aide.
The inspector general discovered the potential emails among 744 disaster recovery tapes that backup IRS systems, and found up to 30,000 Lerner emails from 2009 to 2011, which covers the period of emails she reported lost in a computer hard drive crash.
The revelation raised a host of questions about the IRS’s claims that the emails had been irretrievably lost — assertions the agency and its new chief, John Koskinen, had made both while testifying under oath to Congress and in court papers defending against lawsuits from several of the conservative groups who had been denied approval for nonprofit status.
The missing emails extend from 2009 to 2011, a period when Lerner headed the IRS’s exempt-organizations division.
The emails were lost when Lerner’s computer crashed, IRS officials said earlier this year.
Now what are the odds that there will be any incriminating emails delivered to Congress. Not only does the IRS need to produce Lerner’s emails, they also need to produce all of the emails of all the other individuals who Lois Lerner emailed. We all know you can delete the received and sent accounts of emails. It is the email chain that becomes the smoking gun of who the emails were sent to and forwarded to from third parties.
Jonathon Gruber Backtracks on His “Americans are Stupid” Comments … But He Has Said it On More Than One Occasion
MSNBC still carrying the water for Barack Obama and Obamacare …
Suddenly MIT professor Jonathan Gruber and the architect of Obamacare is in full spin and CYA mode as he backtracks from his comments that were just made public to all. Gruber stated that Obamacare was a lie, a fraud and the American people were purposely deceived in order to pass the law. Gruber also called the American people stupid. Hmm, isn’t this what Conservatives had said for years? Now Gruber is saying his comments were inappropriate. There is just one problem,Gruber made last these American voter are “stupid” remarks on more than one occasion. Watch the video from The Kelly Files via The Blaze, link HERE, to video of more remarks made by Gruber and Megyn Kelly’s less than willingness to believe him. It begins at the 2:00 mark of the video that Gruber has made this sane remark on more than one occasion. Off the cuff, eh?
Sorry, but he hardly to be seems to be speaking off the cuff. Jonathan Gruber is a very well-spoken and intelligent man. He is also a liberal who has a low opinion of the masses and would do anything to deceive then in order to get Obamacare passed. Gruber regrets making the America voters are stupid comments. Now, he regrets having it be made public. What, is Jonathan Gruber blaming his remarks on a spontaneous thought in his head, when he says he was speaking off the cuff? C’MON MAN!!!
Interestingly enough, he would not appear on FOX News to get a grilling and not just a softball interview on MSLSD.
This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If [Congressional Budget Office] scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in -– you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money — it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass. And it’s the second-best argument. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.
Four Teens Charged With Videotaping with Cellphones Themselves Having Sex with Intoxicated & Unconscious 15 Year Old Girl in Kannapolic, NC … How Are Their No Rape Charges?
What a future these fours teens have ahead of them …
Four teens, two 16 year old and two 15 year old boys face charges after videotaping themselves with their cell phones having sex with a 15 year old intoxicated and unconscious girl. According to police, the charge is preparation of an obscene video made using their cellphones. Two teens were students at South Rowan High School and the other from A.L. Brown High School. The video was not made on school grounds, but in a home where alcohol was present. According to an arrest warrant, the girl was intoxicated and unconscious when two 15-year-olds and two 16-year-old boys took turns making videos. It is unknown how many others received copies of the video. One of the teens charges was Randy Velazquez, who is in locked up under a $5,000 bond. Velazquez’s mother said she has no intention of getting her son out of jail and said he needs to learn a lesson from what he is accused of doing.
Wait a minute, am I missing something? Did the police not say that these boys had sex with an intoxicated and unconscious girl … how is this not sexual assault and rape as well? Also, it would be simple to determine who was sent the videos, would that not also be considered the crime of disseminating child porn? Hey Kanappolis DA … Wake the Hell up!!!
A 16-year-old and two 15-year-olds face charges after deputies said they videotaped themselves having sex with a 15-year-old who was intoxicated.
Police arrested a fourth teenager Friday afternoon.
The charge is preparation of an obscene video made using their cellphones.
Police showed Channel 9 some of the evidence which was one disc after another of the cellphone videos showing the teens having sex with a 15-year-old girl.
According to an arrest warrant, the girl was intoxicated and unconscious when two 15-year-olds and two 16-year-old boys took turns making videos.
Federal Workers Go Unpunished for Surfing Porn While On the Job & Paid by “We the People’s” Hard Earned Tax Dollars
THE WASTING OF TAX PAYER DOLLARS …
Exactly how is it that federal employees can be busted for surfing porn on the job and evade punishment? The Washington Times points out that on several occasions individuals have been busted for surfing porn when they should have been working; however, they pretty much go unpunished and in some cases get raises. According to accounts, prosecutors seem to pursue cases aggressively only when there is evidence of child pornography is involved. REALLY?
The porn aside and the misuse of government equipment as well, what part about the falsification of a federal employee time card and the resulting payment to the federal employee are the prosecutors missing? There is not one government agency that does not have a “policies & procedures” on employee conduct “compliance” policies that must be followed. The falsification with intent to defraud the tax payers is an offense that includes termination. However, these days it appears in government, no one is held accountable.
An employee at the U.S. Office of the Trustee — an arm of the Justice Department charged with overseeing the integrity of the bankruptcy system — spent up to five hours a day on the job looking at pornography, visiting more than 2,500 adult websites during 2011, investigators found.
The case was just one of more than a dozen investigations into computer misuse closed by the Justice Department’s office of inspector general from 2013 through early this year, according to records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.
Yet porn peepers are rarely charged with time and attendance abuse, according to investigative memos on computer misuse from agencies across government. Prosecutors seem to pursue cases aggressively only when there is evidence of child pornography.
Agencies dole out discipline administratively in some cases, and the identities of the employees are shielded from public disclosure, records show.
HEY LOIS, IF YOU DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG, THEN THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO REASON TO PLEA THE FIFTH.
In an interview with The Politico, an unapologetic Lois Lerner broke her silence and claims, “I didn’t do anything wrong.” PLEASE, just like a lib, always the victim. It is just a coincidence that the department that you were in charge of went after Tea Party and Conservative non-profit groups in an effort to marginalize them heading into the 2012 elections. It is just a coincidence that the IRS scandal was more than just two rogue agents. It is just a coincidence that the IRS scandal leads back to Washington, DC federal IRS offices. It is also another coincidence that your emails have gone missing and your Blackerberry as well. And of course it was also just a coincidence that when given an opportunity to provide testimony under oath to Congress that you have plead the fifth not once, but twice. Who are you kidding? Yup, not a smidgen of corruption. Gee Lois, why would you need to plea the 5th to protect yourself against self-incrimination, if you didn’t do anything wrong. HMM?
Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS.
Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”
The portrait that emerges shows Lerner is, indeed, fierce, unapologetic and perhaps even tone-deaf when she says things that show her Democratic leanings. She had a quick temper and may have intimidated co-workers who could have helped her out of this mess. It’s easy to see how Republicans have seized on the image of a devilish figure cracking down on conservative nonprofits.
So were the emails destroyed, or do they exist and this has been nothing but an exercise in stonewalling.
UPDATE I: It would appear that the Federalist agrees with SM, “Sorry, Politico, But Lois Lerner Is Not A Victim … but the Politico would have you believe Lois Lerner is a “Hero. Servant. Brownie-baking puppy lover. Sister of the Blessed State.” Great minds think alike!
GW Students Unaware of 9/11 Anniversary, Or Journalist’s Names Beheaded by ISIS … But Are Able to Name Celebrities Involved in Nude Photo Scandal
SAD, JUST PLAIN SAD … SO MUCH FOR A COLLEGE EDUCATION THESE DAYS.
The Young America’s Foundation released a VIDEO on Wednesday, a day before the 13th anniversary of 9-11, where George Washington students were asked whether they were aware of the significance of the date and whether they knew the names of the two American journalists who were recently beheaded by the terrorist group ISIS. Pathetically, for the most part, they had no idea. Oh but fear not for the future America, most all could name the celebrities involved in the recent nude pic hacking scandal.
Other than the two co-eds in the beginning of the VIDEO who seem to have a clue and up on current affairs and know their history, perhaps the best answer of anyone in this VIDEO was when asked by the YAF spokeswoman Ashley Pratte asked about President Obama’s strategy for dealing with ISIS. One girl responded, ”Does he have one?”
The results of the study:
- 29 of 30 (97%) students could could name a celebrity involved in the nude hacking scandal.
- 4 of 30 (13%) could name either of the American journalists, James Foley or Steven Sotloff.
- 6 in 30 (20%) knew this week was the anniversary of 9-11. What’s even more tragic is not only have these kids forgotten, they may never have known.
Maybe we have finally figured out how to get the youth vote … just have all the candidates in their political ads be in their birthday suits?
The Triple Crown of Lying … Fact Check.org/Politifact/WAPO Fact Checker Gives Barack Obama & Minions More Pinnochio’s for His Lame ISIS, JV Team’ Explanation
BARACK OBAMA, YOU LIED … AGAIN!!!
Fact Check.org gives Barack Obama more “Pinocchio’s” for his lame effort in trying to say that he was not referring to ISIS when he was making the past comparison that ISIS was like a “jayvee” terror team. WHAT OBAMA LIE? Say it isn’t so. Obama and his minions have won the “triple crown” of lying as Fack Check.org, Politifact and the WAPO Fact Checker all say … YOU LIE. I guess it all depended on that is, is … oh sorry, ISIS is. Barack Obama is simply incapable of telling the truth.
Todd: Long way, long way from when you described them as a JV team.
Obama: Well, I –
Todd: Was that bad intelligence or your misjudgment?
Obama: Keep — keep — keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL. I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally. Weren’t focused on homeland, because I think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the model is Osama bin Laden and 9/11. And the point that I was –
Todd: You don’t believe these people –
Obama: Not yet. But they — they can evolve. And I was very specific at that time. What I said was, not every regional terrorist organization is automatically a threat to us that would call for a major offensive. Our goal should not be to think that we can occupy every country where there’s a terrorist organization.
Barack Obama – The Lying King
During Obama’s Meet the Press interview Sunday with new host Chuck Todd, the president essentially gave the same explanation Earnest previously gave about the JV remark published in the New Yorker in January.
“Keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to (Islamic State). I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally, weren’t focused on homeland, because I think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the model is Osama bin Laden and 9/11,” Obama told Todd.
FactCheck.org issued a verdict Monday afternoon that like others was based on the transcript from New Yorker reporter Davide Remnick’s interview with Obama.
“The president can make the case that he wasn’t referring only to ISIS when he made his remark about a junior varsity team. But he cannot say that he ‘wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL,’ because The New Yorker article and the transcript of the interview make it clear that the context of the president’s remark included ISIS,” FactCheck.org says.
STRIKE ONE: Fack Check. org
STRIKE TWO: PolitiFact ranked Obama’s Meet the Press statement as “false.” That’s slightly better than the worst ranking the site can give: “pants on fire.”
STRIKE THREE: Washington Post Fact Checker gave Earnest its worst ranking.
