Celebrity deaths by hanging from door knob

In his article on “Hanging,” forensic pathologist Dr. Dinesh Rao explains:

Hanging is that form of asphyxia which is caused by suspension of the body by a ligature which encircles the neck, the constricting force being the weight of the body. The whole weight of the body is not necessary, and only a comparatively slight force is enough to produce death. In ‘partial hanging’ the bodies are partially suspended…. Hanging may occur simply by leaning against the noose secured to a chair or door knob…which is slightly higher than the position of the head….

A sensational article by Jay Greenberg for the dubious site Neon Nettle, claims that twelve “pedophile related” celebrities have died by “suicide” from hanging themselves from doorknobs.

While it is true that there has been a recent rash of celebrity suicides via hanging from a doorknob — three in one week in June — not all 12 celebrity suicides cited by Neon Nettle were from hanging. Swedish DJ Avicii died from self-inflicted injuries with a broken wine bottle. Nor are all 12 celebrities connected to pedophilia or child trafficking.

Below are the 12 celebrity suicides:

(1) Anthony Bourdain

On June 8, 2018, celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, aged 61, was found dead of an apparent suicide by hanging from a doorknob in his room at Le Chambard hotel in Kaysersberg, France. His body bore no signs of violence; toxicology results were negative for narcotics. See also “The dark side of Anthony Bourdain“.

(2) Inés Zorreguieta

On June 6, 2018, Inés Zorreguieta, aged 33, the younger sister of Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, was found dead by hanging in her apartment in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A spokesman for the Dutch Embassy in Argentina said “authorities assume it was a case of suicide, and that Inés had suffered from depression and mental health issues. (Daily Mail)

The father of Inés Zorreguieta and Queen Máxima was Argentine politician Jorge Zorreguieta, who was Minister of Agriculture during the regime of Argentine President Videla, a military dictator who ruled Argentina from 1976 to 1981 and who was responsible for many atrocities against civilians. An estimated 10,000–30,000 people were kidnapped and murdered during this and subsequent military regimes before democracy was restored to Argentina in 1983. Zorreguieta died in 2017 of leukemia at the age of 89.

Former-CIA agent Robert David Steele claims that Queen Máxima “stepped down after allegations of having ‘hunts’ where children were raped and massacred by her dinner guests,” but according to the website of the Royal House of the Netherlands, Máxima is still Queen of the Netherlands.

Another net gossip is that Inés Zorreguieta “had been in attendance to her aging father before he died, and as those approaching death are prone to confess their sins, she learned the truth about what had happened to many Argentine children who went missing. It is presumed by many that they were adopted, but most were sold to the wealthy who worshiped Moloch. The details of the modern day network, particularly among the royalty in Europe, were whispered into the ear of young Inés, who was likewise silenced.”

(3) Kate Spade

On June 5, 2018, fashion designer Kate Spade, aged 55, was found dead, hanging from a red scarf on a bedroom door in her Manhattan apartment (NBC New York). Her death was ruled a suicide by hanging; she’d left a suicide note to her daughter, in which she seemed to blame her estranged husband, Andy Spade.

It is said that Kate Spade had partnered with the Clinton Foundation on at least two major projects: She helped operate a media campaign for the Foundation’s No Ceiling Initiative, and sent representatives to deal with Haitian business owners on the Clintons’ behalf. According to the Clinton Foundation website, Spade was part of the Foundation’s No Ceilings Initiative and had led delegations down to Haiti as recently as 2015. (See also “Attn. Clinton Foundation: Hurricane-ravaged Haiti needs the $2B in donations you stole from its earthquake relief funds”)

Directly following Kate’s death, Andy Spade was seen leaving his apartment wearing a bizarre mouse mask. That prompted independent journalist Liz Crokin to speculate that he had been forced to wear the mouse mask as a signal to others not to “rat out” the Clintons.

(4) Avicii

On April 20, 2018, Swedish DJ Avicii (real name Tim Bergling), aged 28, was found dead in Muscat, Oman. Omani police said there was “no criminal suspicion” or evidence of foul play. TMZ reported that the cause of death was suicide due to self-inflicted injuries with a broken wine bottle. Avicii had been plagued with numerous health problems, including acute pancreatitis, in part due to excessive drinking; in 2014, he had surgery to remove his gallbladder and appendix. Reportedly, Avicii was trying to expose a pedophile ring in his video “For a Better Day“.

(5) Chester Bennington

On July 20, 2017, Chester Bennington, aged 41, lead singer of rock band Linkin Park, was found dead by his housekeeper in his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California. Toxicology report showed only “a trace amount” of alcohol in Bennington’s system at the time of death. His death was ruled a suicide by  hanging himself from a bedroom door (USA Today).

Bennington was best friends with singer Chris Cornell (see below), who had committed suicide two months before. Net gossip is that Cornell and Bennington had been working to expose an elite pedophile ring.

(6) Chris Cornell

On May 18, 2017, musician-singer Chris Cornell, 52, was found unconscious on the floor by his bodyguard in the bathroom of his hotel room at the MGM Grand in Detroit, where he had been performing at a show. Cornell had an exercise band around his neck and blood in his mouth. Police ruled out homicide by reviewing a hotel surveillance video, which showed nobody entering or exiting the suite after his bodyguard left at around 11:35 p.m. The coroner determined that the cause of death was suicide by hanging, and that Cornell’s injuries were all “consistent with hanging, partially suspended by the resistance exercise band,” and that “drugs did not contribute” to the cause of death.

(7) Robin Williams

On August 11, 2014, actor Robin Williams, 63, was found dead by his personal assistant in the bedroom of his home in Tiburon, California. According to the coroner, Williams was clothed, with a belt around his neck — he was “suspended from the belt which was wedged between the door and the door frame in a seated position slightly suspended off the ground.” (ABCNews)

The final autopsy report, released in November 2014, stated that Williams had committed suicide; neither alcohol nor illegal drugs were involved, while all prescription drugs present in his body were at “therapeutic” levels; and that he had Lewy Body dementia. (Wikipedia)

(8) L’Wren Scott

On March 17, 2014, fashion designer L’Wren Scott, aged 49, former girl friend of Mick Jagger and Nathaniel Rothschild (the only son of Sir Jacob Rothschild), was found dead by her assistant at her Manhattan apartment. The police reported that no note was found and there was no sign of foul play. The New York City Chief Medical Examiner determined Scott’s manner and cause of death to be suicide by hanging.

The Guardian reports that Scott was found fully clothed, her 6ft 3in frame slumped on the floor, having hanged herself with a black silk scarf:

So it seems odd that Scott would choose such a brutal way to end her life. Odd, too, that she would text her assistant, Brittany Penebre, at 8.30 on the morning of her death, asking her to come round. It was Monday 17 March and by the time Penebre got to the apartment at 10am, Scott was dead.

(9) Aaron Swartz

On January 11, 2013, tech pioneer and Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz, aged 26, was found dead in the bedroom of his Brooklyn apartment by his girl friend. His body was hanging from a belt just inside the bedroom window (New York Daily News). New York’s Medical Examiner reported Swartz had hanged himself. No suicide note was found.

His death came two years to the day after his arrest on allegations of breaching a computer network to download millions of pages of documents kept at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. According to Robert David Steele, Swartz had hacked into MIT computers and found a huge stash of child pornography. See also FOTM‘s post, “A Tribute to Aaron Swartz“.

(10) Alexander McQueen

On February 11, 2010, openly “gay” fashion designer Alexander McQueen, 40, was found dead by his housekeeper in his London home. He left a note saying, “Look after my dogs, sorry, I love you, Lee.” The coroner determined his death to be by suicide from hanging.

The UK tabloid Mirror says McQueen hanged himself in a wardrobe.

(11) David Carradine

On June 3, 2009, actor David Carradine, 72, was found dead in his hotel room in Bangkok, Thailand, where he was shooting the film, Stretch. A police official said that Carradine was found naked, hanging by a rope in the room’s closet, causing immediate speculation that his death was suicide. However, evidence suggested that his death was accidental, the result of autoerotic asphyxiation. Two autopsies were conducted, both concluding that the death was not a suicide. Two of Carradine’s former wives said his sexual interests included self-bondage.

Reportedly, Carradine might have been involved in child sex tourism in Thailand.

(12) Michael Hutchence

On November 22, 1997, Australian musician and INXS frontman Michael Hutchence, age 37, was found dead by a hotel maid in his room in Ritz-Carlton in Sydney, Australia. Police reported that Hutchence was found “in a kneeling position facing the door. He had used his snake skin belt to tie a knot on the automatic door closure at the top of the door, and had strained his head forward into the loop so hard that the buckle had broken.”

The coroner ruled that his death was suicide while depressed and under the influence of alcohol and other drugs. But according to Australian Legislative Ethics Commission, Hutchence had information regarding a “VIP pedophile ring” in the UK that was connected to child killing rapist Jimmy Saville and high-ranking politicians.

Former CIA agent Robert David Steele writes:

How high are these doorknobs? Wouldn’t your feet and probably your whole body touch the floor? … I think this trend of hanging oneself on doorknobs with scarves stinks to high heaven. I am having a hard time buying it…. Who knew doorknobs were so deadly?

What do you think?

FBI agent Peter Strzok looked possessed; wiggles like a snake like Hillary Clinton

Peter Strzok (pronounced “struck”) is the FBI agent and chief of the Bureau’s Counterespionage Section who led two of the FBI’s most important investigations into:

  1. Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a personal email server while she was Obama’s Secretary of State.
  2. Russian interference in and alleged collusion with Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Strzok had worked with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the Russian investigation, but was removed in late July 2017 after the discovery of some 50,000 text messages he’d exchanged with Lisa Page — a colleague who was also working on the Russian investigation and with whom Strzok was having an adulterous affair — throughout the 2016 presidential election and first year of the Trump administration.

In their text messages, Strzok and Page show their clear political bias against Donald Trump and for Hillary Clinton, although FBI agents are supposed to be non-partisan in doing their work. The two adulterers bashed Trump and discussed concerns about being too tough on Hillary Clinton in their investigation into her unlawful use of a private email server.

Here are some anti-Trump comments in the Strzok-Page text messages (sources: CBS Miami; Fox News):

Strzok: “[Bernie Sanders is] an idiot like Trump.”

Page: “God Trump is a loathsome human.” Strzok responded: “This man cannot be president.”

In one particular message, when Page asked if Trump would ever become president, Strzok replied, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.

Interestingly, in the text messages, Strzok also said he was hesitant to join Mueller’s Russian investigation because of his “gut sense” that there was “no big there there.” Indeed, to this day, Mueller has not found even a shred of evidence of a Trump-Russian collusion.

On July 12, 2018, an arrogant Strzok testified at an extraordinary congressional hearing, described by the AP as “chaotic” and “devolved into shouting matches”. Strzok brazenly denied that the personal beliefs expressed in his text messages, including his “We’ll stop Trump” vow, had affected his work for the FBI in any way or that he and the FBI “would take any action whatsoever to improperly impact the electoral process for any candidate.” Cynically waving the flag, Strzok accused Congress’ investigation into him as misguided and playing into “our enemies’ campaign to tear America apart.”

Aside from Strzok’s wholly self-serving and downright unbelievable testimony, what is really disturbing about the hearing is his appearance and demeanor.

There’s no other word for it: Strzok looked possessed, with evil eyes and horns sprouting above his eyebrows.

But it’s not just the evil eyes and devil’s horns.

Strzok also did this really, really strange wiggle during the Congressional hearing:

In a tweet on July 12, conservative actor James Wood reminds us that Hillary Clinton, too, wiggled like Peter Strzok: “Great snakes writhe alike…”

Meanwhile, an insane Hillary actually invoked slavery as a reason against Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, claiming Kavanaugh would bring back slavery by “turning the clock back to the 1850s”.

Signs of Hillary Clinton running for POTUS in 2020

Eyebleach Alert!

Hillary demon

To quote the inimitable Yogi Berra: It’s déjà vu all over again.

There is increasing buzz on the net that Hillary Clinton means to run again for the Presidency in 2020.

Here are the signs:

(1) She continues to be in denial that she had lost the 2016 presidential election, but blames her loss on any and everything under the sun — white people, misogynists, women with no minds of their own, Bernie Sanders, and of course, the Russians. (See “Hillary Clinton blames election loss on 42 scapegoats”)

(2) She keeps insisting “No, I’m not over it”:

(3) She’s behaving like she’s running:

  • Five times in the last month alone, Hillary sent e-mails touting her super PAC’s role in combating President Trump. Most seized on headline events, such as the family-separation issue at the southern border.
  • She’s organizing:
    • Hillary openly subverts President Trump with $800k donation to the “resistance” movement.
    • Onward Together, formed in May of 2017, is a Hillary 2020 campaign vehicle in waiting. Onward Together’s homepage says the group “is dedicated to advancing the vision that earned [Hillary Clinton] nearly 66 million votes in the last election.”
    • The day after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, Hillary introduced a newly- minted “resistance” organization called Demand Justice, which promises to protect “reproductive rights, voting rights and access to health care” by keeping Senate Democrats united in opposing any conservative Trump nominee. The executive director of Demand Justice is Brian Fallon, who was Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign’s press secretary.

(4) There’s no one else. As Michael Goodwin writes in the New York Post, July 7, 2018:

First . . . there’s no clear front-runner for the nomination 18 months into Trump’s presidency, Clinton remains the closest thing to an incumbent. She’s also got numerous advantages, from name recognition to campaign experience to an off-the-shelf Cabinet, that could give her a head start.

Second, a crowded, diverse field diminishes the chances of anyone knocking her off. Recall how Trump outlasted 16 GOP rivals by having a committed core of supporters that grew as the field shrunk. Clinton could be in a similar position — unpopular among many, but also unbeatable by a single opponent.

Third, looking ahead to the 2020 primaries, she sees no reason to fear the favorite daughters and sons in key blue states. She would almost certainly beat Sen. Kamala Harris in California, Sen. Cory Booker in New Jersey and Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York.

And please — forget Sanders and Joe Biden. Sanders is already 76 and Biden, at 75, has never been a viable candidate for president and still isn’t.

Fourth, money is not an issue. Some donors will resist Clinton at first, but any Dem nominee can count on all the money in the world to run against Trump.

TDS on steroids: Guardian writer blames Trump for skipping gym, says she can’t open jars any more

guardian writer

These people…

From Fox News: Trump Derangement Syndrome is even worse than anyone thought: It has now made it impossible for one woman to open a jar of pickles.

The Guardian published a column Wednesday by a woman who blames President Trump for keeping her from the gym, leaving her too weak to carry groceries or open jars.

The outlandish commentary headlined, “I stopped going to the gym because of Trump. Now I can’t open jars,” was written by Brigid Delaney, who is a senior writer for Guardian Australia. She explained that after losing a wager on the 2016 presidential election to the owner of her gym, she was forced to pull a sled in an event that appears to have been equal parts show of strength and humiliation.

“I pulled the sled like a human oxen while being filmed and the gym staff cheered. I did it. But the Trump victory soured my successful show of strength,” Delaney wrote. “Yeah, I could pull a pretend sled. But how was that going to help me when the world had been destroyed by nuclear weapons or climate change?

Delaney then complains of a bad meal she ate while sulking about Trump defeating Hillary Clinton and decided that she wouldn’t work out any more – somehow blaming Trump for her decision.

“My thinking about fitness changed almost overnight. In tune with the times, it became more Trump, less Obama,” Delaney wrote. “In the spirit of the Donald, I drank more bottles of Diet Coke and ate more McDonald’s.”

A careful reading of the column does little to reveal whether Trump’s victory was so demoralizing that she could no longer exercise, or if she was actually inspired to adopt Trump’s aversion to working out.

Delaney cites the book “Trump Revealed” and a quote that the president once gave to Reuters about his philosophy on working out. Despite suggesting that Trump is capable of destroying the world a few sentences earlier, she decided to follow in his footsteps.

“I dropped the gym – embracing Trump’s belief that we are given a certain amount of energy and if we use it then we are depleting a finite resource,” she wrote.  “I didn’t want to die young, so I didn’t go to the gym.”

Delaney complained of not being strong enough to open jars or carry groceries, openly pondering if she could continue to skip the gym for the duration of Trump’s presidency. “Trump was going to be in power for another 1,000 years. Or at least that’s what it felt like,” she wrote before declaring that she decided to return to exercise despite her outrage over the 2016 election.

“I returned again this week – to the boredom and pain of the gym – trying to build up back to the strength I had before Trump became president,” she wrote.

Cher, 29, raped a 13-year-old boy

Sex with a minor is statutory rape, because the law regards the underage person as too young to be capable of consenting to sexual acts. It does not matter if the perpetrator believed that the victim was of the age of consent because Mistake of Fact is no defense in a statutory rape case.

The age of consent — the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity — varies by state. In the state of California, the age of consent is 18 years old, which means that an adult who had sex with a minor can be prosecuted for statutory rape.

In psychology, overreaction is defined as “a response, specifically an emotional reaction, which goes beyond a proper level.” Being exaggerated and off-the-scale, overreaction is an irrational response to a stimulus, which points to some underlying dynamics within the individual’s psychology.

The overreaction of so many rabidly unhinged anti-Trumpers indicates they feel threatened by President Trump as he systematically fulfills his campaign promises to the Americans who’d voted for him — those whom Hillary Clinton contemptuously demonized as “deplorables”.

Some anti-Trumpers have a personal stake in that they have done (and may still be doing) deeds that can put them in prison. As an example, even before Trump was inaugurated President, actor Robert De Niro threatened to “punch him in the face”. Though a 74-year-old senior citizen, De Niro takes every opportunity in public venues to hurl invectives at a duly-elected sitting President, calling Trump “blatantly stupid,” “a punk,” “a dog,” “a pig,” “a con,” “a mutt,” “a bullshit artist,” “an idiot,” “mentally ill,” “soulless,” “son of a bitch,” and “Hitler” — always a favorite cliche-insult of the Left.

It should be noted that De Niro was a client of an international prostitution ring with underage girls.

Another senior-citizen actress, 72-year-old Cher, is also a rabid anti-Trumper. In 2016, while campaigning for Hillary, Cher called Trump “a fucking idiot” and wielded another of the Left’s perennial insults — that of racism, claiming that what Trump means by “Make America Great Again” is really “We want to make America straight and white”.

Note: Both De Niro and Cher are high school drop outs. Donald Trump is a graduate of the private boarding school, New York Military Academy, and has a Bachelor of Science degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. So much for Trump being an “idiot”.

It is of some interest to learn that, like De Niro, Cher also has a personal stake in thwarting President Trump.

Crazy Days and Nights (CDAN) is a Hollywood gossip website that has been described by The Daily Beast as having a track record of accuracy, and by investigative journalist Mark Ebner as “being proven right again and again”.

Yesterday, July 3, 2018, Crazy Days and Nights published a “Blind Item Revealed” identifying Cher as the “permanent A list singer” who raped a 13-year-old boy in 1975:

This permanent A list singer who is also an Oscar winner/nominee says, “it was a different time,” to explain why she would have sex with underage boys. She said that lots of men in music were doing the same thing to girls at the time and it was a different world where it was acceptable.

Cher/Anthony Kiedis (he was 13 and she was 29)

Anthony Keidis, now 55, is the lead singer and lyricist of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers. He was raised by his mother in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 1974, when he was 11 years old, the boy moved to Hollywood to live permanently with his father, actor John Michael Kiedis.

The late entertainer Sonny Bono was a close friend of John Kiedis and godfather to Anthony. Bono’s then-wife Cher babysat Anthony.

According to an account of Anthony Kiedis by Lisa Flowers in Ranker:

  • His father was a drug dealer and introduced Anthony to drugs at a young age.
  • His dad used him as a drug-mule: “Not long after Kiedis moved to Los Angeles in 1974, his dad took him on a drug dealing trip to Kenosha, Wisconsin.” The returned to Los Angeles with $30,000 in cash. As Anthony recounts in his autobiography Scar Tissue, “My dad told me I’d be carrying the money, because if they caught someone who looked like him with all that money, he’d be busted for sure… so we rigged a belt piece, stuffed it with cash, and taped it to my abdomen.”
  • Anthony lost his virginity at 12 to his dad’s 18-year-old girlfriend, which was set up by his dad.
  • Cher was Anthony’s baby-sitter: “When Anthony was in eighth grade, Cher, who was separated from Sonny by then, offered to babysit. He and Cher enjoyed their evening together, engaging in an hours-long chat and really getting to know one another. Then Kiedis went to bed, and Cher got ready to do the same. Believing Kiedis to be asleep, Cher took off all her clothes. From his nearby bed, Anthony watched…. Cher put on a nightgown and got into bed with Anthony. And the two spent the night sleeping side-by-side.”

Now we know from CDAN that 29-year-old Cher did more than sleep side-by-side with 13-year-old Anthony. It is not just CDAN, according to Elle, Anthony Kiedis states in Scar Tissue that Cher was his first sexual encounter, when he was 13.

Simply put, Cher is a sexual predator — a pedophile. Pedophilia is legally defined as any sexual activity with a minor below the age of consent.

Cher also enabled the statutory rape of her own daughter, Chastity, who now identifies as “transgender” Chaz.

Chaz Bono said “his” first sexual experience was as a teen “girl” with Cher’s best friend, who was Cher’s age.

RICO lawsuit filed against Soros, Clintons, Podesta, Clinton Foundation, David Brock & Media Matters

Since the Department of Justice seems reluctant or unable to do it, a former Secret Service agent is taking matters into his hands.

Former Secret Service officer Gary J. Byrne is the author of the 2016 bestseller, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate. Byrne concludes that from his experiences, Hillary Clinton “lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office” of the U.S. presidency.

On June 15, 2018, in the District of Columbia District Court, Gary Byrne filed a civil lawsuit, Byrne v. Clinton Foundation et al, Case no. 1:2018cv01422, against these individuals and organizations for RICO — racketeering and fraud. In alphabetical order, the defendants are:

  1. American Bridge 21st Century: Democrat super PAC founded by David Brock (#2 below) in 2010 and associated with Brock’s Media Matters (see #11 below).
  2. David Brock: A Democrat Party operative, Clinton crony, and former boyfriend of Comet Ping Pong owner, James Alefantis.
  3. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington: A supposedly non-partisan, non-profit, government ethics and accountability watchdog organization that is identified by both the New York Times and Fox News as “liberal”.
  4. William Jefferson Clinton
  5. Hillary Rodham Clinton
  6. Clinton Foundation: A non-profit founded by Bill Cinton, with a record of play-for-pay corruption.
  7. Clinton Global Initiative: A program or initiative of the Clinton Foundation.
  8. Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership: An initiative of the Clinton Foundation for “poverty alleviation” in developing countries. Canadian businessman Frank Giustra is on the board of trustees of the Clinton Foundation.
  9. Correct the Record: A super PAC founded by David Brock to support Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign by finding and confronting social media users who posted unflattering messages about Hillary, and paying anonymous tipsters for unflattering scoops about Hillary’s rivals Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, including audio and video recordings and internal documents.
  10. Jan Gilooly: Gilloly is probably a typo. Jan Gilhooly is president of the Association of Former Agents of the United States Secret Service, who claimed that Byrne had “underlying motives” for writing his book about the Clintons, Crisis of Character.
  11. Media Matters for America: A left-wing, tax-exempt, nonprofit organization, founded by David Brock, with the stated mission of “comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media”.
  12. John Podesta is a longtime Clinton operative who was chair of Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign, Obama’s White House counselor, and Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff. He is now chair of the Center for American Progress, a D.C. think tank, and a visiting professor at Georgetown University Law Center.
  13. Share Blue or Shareblue Media is a leftwing news website owned by David Brock, which aims to raise $40 million to oppose President Trump’s policies.
  14. George Soros: Evil billionaire international financier who was a Nazi collaborator and who made his fortune in currency speculation — a parasitic undertaking that produces neither goods nor services nor anything of value, except for the speculator.
  15. Jonathan Wackrow: A former Secret Service agent who is now a CNN law enforcement analyst and managing director of Teneo Risk, a strategic threat advisory firm.

RICO is the acronym for the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act — a U.S. federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering — a planned or organized criminal operation — and enables the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes they ordered others to do or assisted them in doing. In so doing, RICO closes a loophole that had allowed a person who instructed someone else to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because they did not actually commit the crime personally.

Byrne’s case has been assigned to Judge Paul L. Friedman, who was appointed in 1994 by Bill Clinton to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” struggling to regain advertisers after vile attack on Ivanka Trump

samantha bee

Imagine my distress.

From Fox News: A new report shows Samantha Bee’s late night show “Full Frontal” hasn’t been able to regain its advertisers after the host called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—” on her show in May.

The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media.

“You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child…But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c—. He listens to you,” Bee said.

Bee apologized on a June 6 episode, but the damage was done as her advertisers dropped her.

Before the vulgar remark, Bee’s TBS show had 19 advertisers but when she apologized on the June 6 episode, she was down to a mere six and has been unable to gain them back weeks later, a new Newsbusters report shows.

In her June 6 opening monologue, Bee told viewers that her insult directed at the first daughter “crossed a line.”

“It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it,” Bee said. “This time, I used it as an insult. I crossed a line. I regret it and I do apologize.”

Her on-air apology came after she tweeted she was sorry.

Both Bee and TBS issued apologies the following day, with the network tweeting the “vile” comment was “our mistake too, and we regret it.”
