Judicial activism: judge lets defendant make a run for it

Our theme today is moral relativism


Trump has unemployment so low, he even got
Colin Kaepernick an interview

You saw what happened to Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa. May be a Bo Jackson kind of career-ending injury. Could have happened on any play. The Packers have a promising season ahead of them that all goes kerflooie if Aaron Rodgers goes down. Should sign Colin Kaepernick, who has actual NFL experience. Yes, I know. But they can get him cheap. If he takes a knee, toss him out on Lombardi Avenue. Write it into his contract.

BTW, Mr. Kaepernick: white people did not oppress you; they raised you.

The horror! A cancelled subscription

In today’s WI State Journal (11-18-19) Leonard Pitts Jr. frets about the White House canceling its subscription to the New York Times and a fellow in Idaho who misfiles library books critical of Republicans. Hardly a book burning.

In Madison, you get your political sign wrecked, one entire side of your house spray painted (requiring new siding), and your American flag shredded on Veterans Day if you support Donald Trump. WKOW TV-27 has the story.

Vicki McKenna interviews the victim  at the 52:55 mark.

Students at a New York university shut down economist’s talk.

Your analogy also missed, Frank

Of Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine, New York Times columnist Frank Bruni makes this analogy:

I came to your house with a gun. … I tied you to a chair, took a step back and repeatedly fired. But my arm twitched; every bullet missed. Meanwhile, you slipped your knots and fled. By the reasoning of Rep. Jim Jordan, I did absolutely noting wrong. You’re alive! … An unconsummated crime is no crime at all, or so … Republican[s] argue.

Nice, try, Bruni. No cigar. Trump invaded no one’s home, tied no one to a chair, did not fire a gun point blank at a victim. What’s more: It’s OUR money Trump briefly withheld (not that President Zelensky ever noticed) not theirs.  In fact, the president of Ukraine said he never felt threatened.

Liberal Judge helps illegal immigrant escape

The New York Times has a page one story on a suburban Boston circuit court judge who ordered the official court recorder turned off so that an immigration detainee could escape through a rear courtroom door, through the rear parking lot and over a fence. She had told the ICE agent to wait in the lobby. The illegal immigrant had been arrested on narcotics charges, was suspected for drunk driving, and was deported twice before. 

Glory be to God, a federal prosecutor brought criminal charges against the state judge. Obstruction of justice.

Of course, “legal heavyweights have rallied to her defense,” the Times reports. “Massachusetts is home to all those liberals who hate Donald Trump, you know what I’m trying to say,” one of them said. “You don’t indict a sitting judge without getting direct clearance from Washington.”

Blaska’s Bottom Line:  A judge doesn’t turn off the audio recorder and permit the defendant to make a run for it, know what I’m trying to say? Then again, maybe the judge in federal court will turn off the audio recorder and let Judge Shelley Joseph make a run for it.

⇒ Then again, is that terribly different from Dane County judges slapping ankle bracelets on repeat offenders? Some of them repeat bail jumpers!

    I’m puzzled as to why Trump’s defenders haven’t pounced on a key phrase in the President’s phone conversation with the President of Ukraine in which Trump asks him for a “favor.” The definition of a favor is asking someone to do something with no expectation that they will demand (or expect) something in return. Semantics? Maybe, but sometimes semantics matter.

    You might have mentioned that Leonard Pitts not only had a hissy fit about cancelled newspaper subscriptions and hidden library books but offered this as proof positive that the US is steps away from becoming a theocracy a la Saudi Arabia or Iran. The only thing this proves is that liberals can get away with the most preposterous assertions as long as they paint Donald Trump and his followers as the anti-Christ.

    As for the judge who orchestrated the escape of an accused criminal, is it so very far from what happens every week in Dane County where judges routinely allow juvenile thugs convicted of burglary and car theft to sashay through the revolving doors of their courtroom?

    Bruni’s idiocy is on a par with Muldrow’s moron-level conflating of abortion with Big Gubmint commandeering Blaska’s kidney.

    Seriously; how stupid do these people deem their target audience?

    Has there ever been money given without a quid pro quo? Why would any tax money be given to foreigners for a lack of anything better to do?

    I would like to see you state, accurately, why Colin Kaepernick kneels. Like many great activists, he’s not protesting his own persecution, but using his platform to speak on behalf of others. Sort of like how you use the platform of the radio to speak up on behalf of people who probably have jobs that don’t allow them to write blogs and talk on the radio during the day.

      @Butch;

      Dimwitted, virtue-signalling, ethical moron Colin Kaepernick is a “great activist”?

      If this the same guy that got triggered by a freakin’ Besty Ross Flag AND wore a Pro-Castro t-shirt to Miami, you need a SERIOUS check-up from the neck-up.

      Kaepernick: “A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled.”

      We live in the least racist time in our country’s history; the only time someone wears their Colin T-Shirt is when their Jussie’s Innocent T-Shirt is in the laundry.
