Justice: Weinsten Convicted, Jussie Charged, 9th Circuit Flipped, Planned Parenthood Hit

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

The wheels of American justice do indeed turn slowly; but, as Sun Tzu would have said, they grind exceedingly fine.

In today’s WINNING on the American justice front, we have the following taking place:

Six more criminal charges, and prosecutors apparently aren’t finished yet. Isn’t life grand?

But wait, there’s more!

APCO's Vendor Hall: Tips for Avoiding the Billy Mays' Sales Pitch

Take a look at this one…

From the Hollywood Reporter story:

A jury of 12 men and women has found former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein guilty on two of the five potential criminal charges he faced in his New York County trial.

Weinstein has been convicted of criminal sexual assault in the first degree, based on the testimony of former Project Runway production assistant Miriam Haley, and rape in the third degree, based on the testimony of one-time aspiring actress Jessica Mann.

The verdict was announced on Monday after the jury of seven men and five women spent five days deliberating on his fate.

Weinstein was remanded into custody against the protests of his lawyers, who cited his health. He looked ashen and unstable as he was surrounded by court officers who helped escort him out of the court room.

Weinstein will be sentenced on March 11. He’s facing five to 25 years for the criminal sexual assault conviction and 18 months to four years for the third-degree rape conviction.

At a press availability following the verdict, Weinstein’s lawyers stated that they intend to file an appeal. But the overwhelming likelihood is that this beast will be spending the remainder of his sorry existence in this life in prison. Cool.

But wait, there’s even more!

It turns out that Mini-Mike has long been a very good buddy of the big, monstrous Democrat Party contributor:

From the Daily Mail piece:

The Bloomberg-Weinstein political relationship would continue for years, and would come to include a series of high-profile public events in Manhattan, as well as a joint push for a lucrative tax break that benefited the film industry and helped draw attention to the city.

Bloomberg is one of many famous figures who have come to regret their connections to Weinstein, who has been accused by women of rape and assault and is on trial in New York.

It is a tie that is particularly sensitive for Bloomberg, who has been accused by women of overseeing a hostile work environment and has been accused of making inappropriate comments – a topic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts hammered him over at Wednesday’s Demoratic debate.

Once in office, Bloomberg teamed with Weinstein at events to promote New York City, his charity, and his own election efforts.

Weinstein made last-minute phone calls on behalf of Bloomberg’s 2001 election when the then-Republican took City Hall, according to press accounts at the time.

He was behind the mayor again for his reelection in 2005, when the former filmmaking powerhouse reportedly made automated phone calls to boost the billionaire’s campaign. (Bloomberg spent $85 million on that successful effort).

Weinstein helped lend Democratic credibility and Hollywood cache to the then-independent Bloomberg’s reelection, speaking at a Democrats for Bloomberg event. ‘I haven’t heard this many Democrats saying nice things about me since I was one,’ the mayor quipped at the time.

In other instances, the two teamed up in efforts meant to promote New York and the film industry, as they did in 2002 in a brash effort to lure one of Hollywood’s biggest nights – the Oscars – to Manhattan. The idea began with a Weinstein pitch to get the entire show, then morphed into an effort by Bloomberg, Weinstein, and former New York Gov. George Pataki to bring part of the annual show to the city as a tribute to its glory days.

Oh, my. No wonder Mr. Excitement chose to skip his invited townhall scheduled to have been aired tonight on CNN.

And by the way, in case you are still buying the utter BS that Mini-Mike is 5’8″, know that Harvey Weinstein is 5’9″ when he is not pretending to need that walker. Note how he towers over Bloomberg here:

Believe it or not, that’s still not all!

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times ran a panicked piece that carried this headline:

Trump has flipped the 9th Circuit — and some new judges are causing a ‘shock wave’

Yes, boys and girls, I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

From the LA Times piece:

When President Trump ticks off his accomplishments since taking office, he frequently mentions his aggressive makeover of a key sector of the federal judiciary — the circuit courts of appeal, where he has appointed 51 judges to lifetime jobs in three years.

In few places has the effect been felt more powerfully than in the sprawling 9th Circuit, which covers California and eight other states. Because of Trump’s success in filling vacancies, the San Francisco-based circuit, long dominated by Democratic appointees, has suddenly shifted to the right, with an even more pronounced tilt expected in the years ahead.

Trump has now named 10 judges to the 9th Circuit — more than one-third of its active judges — compared with seven appointed by President Obama over eight years.

“Trump has effectively flipped the circuit,” said 9th Circuit Judge Milan D. Smith Jr., an appointee of President George W. Bush.

Oh, and there’s this little tidbit in that piece for those of us who have wondered how things got so tilted to the far left on the 9th circuit to begin with:

The 9th Circuit court has been dominated by Democratic appointees for decades. In 1978, a federal law created 10 new judgeships on the court, allowing President Carter to fill them all. The liberal Carter appointees were followed by judges named by three Republican presidents and two Democrats.

The more you know…

That injustice took place 42 years ago, and it took President Donald Trump (I will never tire of typing those three glorious words) to correct it.

So, what does the flipping of the 9th Circuit mean in practical terms? Check this out:

From the National Review article:

Title X of the Public Health Service Act authorizes the Department of Health and Human Services to make grants to support voluntary family planning but prohibits grant funds from being used in “programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” In an important victory for the Trump administration—and a big defeat for Planned Parenthood—the Ninth Circuit ruled today (in California v. Azar) that the HHS’s regulations implementing Title X are lawful.

The age of Obama-appointed district judges scattered across the country issuing nationwide injunctions for purely partisan reasons is ending.

That, my friends, is WINNING. Bigly.

That is all.

    Now let’s top things off with two more SCOTUS picks.

    RBG cannot wobble on too much longer, and talk is that Breyer intends to step down soon.

    One more good news item–Biden’s support is collapsing in latest South Carolina NBC/Marist poll:

    https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/24/south-carolina-primary-joe-biden-leads-bernie-sanders-in-nbc-marist-poll.html

    It’s so bad that Slow Joe is now denying he ever said it was a ‘firewall’, which he is on record as saying only a couple of weeks ago.

    If Bernie takes it, which I think he will, I don’t think the DNC has any (legal) way to stop him.

    Rush said it very well today. “Weinstein Convicted of Clinton-Like Sexual Assault”.

  4. Gregg - February 24, 2020

    Another way Trump is getting good and real constitutional judges appointed and confirmed: he has abandoned the arcane (traditional) practice of “senatorial courtesy” where a Dem senator from CA, OR, HI, or WA could veto/block a conservative jurist from their home state just by saying no to the appointment.

    Feckless Bush abided by that BS “tradition”. Trump said to hell with that and basically told senators like Feinstein, Harris, Murray, Widen, Hirono et al to pound sand and he appointed who he wanted. They and the MSM bitched, but they didn’t have anything legal to stand on so Trump, by having big enough salt and pepper shakers to override traditional and institutional stupidity, has once again prevailed.

    Another benefit was that the “One” was lazy and didn’t bother to appoint many judges after he lost the senate in 2014 figuring Walking Eagle would pack the court when she was anointed to his third term.

    That is another big bullet America dodged in 2016

    Weinstein looks pregnant.

  6. Gregg - February 24, 2020

    Dave, Do you know who is the surly looking woman walking next to B. J. Clinton, I mean Weinstein in the picture with Napoleon?

    1. Carlos Dangler - February 25, 2020

      Gregg,
      I think that’s Mini-Mike’s girlfriend, Diana Taylor.

  7. Jimmy MacAfee - February 24, 2020

    When President Trump tweets self-congratulations about things like the 9th Circus Court, it’s effective: the Left focuses their rage on Trump, and spends little time thinking or talking about the consequential changes in the Court. It’s all “orange man bad.” May he continue to tweet relentlessly.

    And the reason Dirty Harry likes Mini Mike the China Asset? Abortion. Sondra Locke once claimed that Dirty Harry forced her to abort his baby. I wonder how many babies he’s sent to the shredder? Gettin’ old, Clint; maybe time to look into some serious repentance? Just sayin.’

  8. Gregg - February 24, 2020

    Regarding the Smollett case: Is anything happening to the original prosecutor(s) who wrongfully dropped all charges?

    Wasn’t there a special prosecutor assigned to probe Fox, and her (mis)conduct?

  9. Jay Whitcraft - February 24, 2020

    I would think that both RBG and Justice Breyer will both try and hang on until the election,hoping Trump will be defeated in November. God may have other plans for either or both. Dave, if I may ask your opinion, what would be the best outcome for the good guys (Trump supporters)? Sanders to get the nomination with his rabid base or have it stolen from him and given to someone else other than Mini Mike, his base stay home? Jay
