JonBenét Ramsey's drawings show she had been sexually abused

JonBenét Ramsey was a six-year-old child beauty pageant queen who was killed in her family’s home in Boulder, Colorado, on the night of December 25–26, 1996.
More than 21 years after, her murder remains unsolved.
The supermarket tabloid National Enquirer, which was nominated for a Pulitzer for breaking the story on former Democrat VP candidate and senator John Edwards‘ adultery and out-of-wedlock child, gained exclusive access to never-before-seen drawings by JonBenét when she was in first grade at the Boulder Valley School in 1996. The series of drawings was for a school project called, “My Time Line”.
The drawings were never investigated by the police. But the Enquirer convened a team of mental health professionals to analyze them. The experts’ conclusion was that the drawings suggest JonBenét Ramsey had been sexually abused for some time prior to her death.

In an article on October 3, 2017, the Enquirer published the specialists’ findings.
To begin, TV-radio show host, author and “relationship expert” Gilda Carle, Ph.D., explains that “Everything a child does in a drawing sends out a message” and the message that JonBenét was sending in her drawings was “Save me!”.
Morgan State University Associate Professor of Psychology and former school psychologist Dr. Jeffrey Menzise explains that JonBenét’s “drawings projected her unconscious mind onto a page, emotions and things she would not consciously say and might not have been able to articulate.”
(1) In a picture JonBenét drew of her family (mother, father, brother and herself), she gave two family members — one of whom is a female with long hair — malevolent eyes, but left her own face blank. Dr. Carle explains that when someone is faceless in a drawing, it often means, “That’s me, and I wish I could disappear!”.

(2) In another drawing, JonBenét depicted herself wearing a T-shirt, no pants, and a partially-erased circular ring around her legs which, according to forensic psychiatrist Carole Lieberman, M.D., “could represent her panties” or “a barrier of protection to stop anything from penetrating her”.
(3) Note that the T-shirt has an oval shape with a hole, which JonBenet drew again and again. The experts believe the oval-shape-with-a-hole signifies a vaginal opening.

(4) In another drawing, a stick figure has multiple legs and no mouth. Experts believe the mouthless figure could be someone trying to silence JonBenet, and that the figure’s multiple legs indicate that individual’s aggression, frustration or other anxiety.

Dr. Menzise concluded that “All these things together would make me ask further about any type of sexual abuse, exposure to sexuality or inappropriate behaviors that she could have been exposed to at her young age.”
Certainly, the analysis conducted by the Enquirer‘s team of mental health professionals reinforces charges by investigators that JonBenét Ramsey had suffered “prior vaginal intrusions” months before her parents allegedly found her lifeless body in the basement of their Colorado home.

Homosexual Oscars emcee Neil Patrick Harris seen abusing his 4 y.o. twins

Openly homosexual actor Neil Patrick Harris thought he was being very clever by hosting the 2015 Academy Awards wearing only his underwear. The next morning on Live With Kelly & Michael, he even boasted that the bulge is all his, as if anyone but sodomites would either be interested in or find that information important. (See “The Oscars go down the toilet“)

But even in our corrupt times of a corrupt pop culture and corrupt media, Harris’ stunt fell flat, panned by critics. Reportedly, he’s been down in the dumps about the “rejection.”

Harris has two children with his “husband,” actor/chef David Burtka — 4-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper, who were conceived via a surrogate mother.
The National Enquirer, admittedly, is a supermarket tabloid, although it must be said that if it weren’t for the Enquirer, we would never know about former Democratic vice president nominee John Edwards’ adultery and “love child” with political groupie Rielle Hunter. It was the Enquirer — not The New York Times, nor The Washington Post, nor the alphabet TV networks, including Fox News — which, alone, doggedly kept after and uncovered Edwards’ infidelity, lies, and misuse of campaign donations to keep and house his mistress. For that, the Enquirer was nominated for a Pulitzer award.

Bob Hartlein reports for The National Enquirer that on March 3, 2015, Harris was seen in a fit of anger at his kids on a cold New York morning.
As recounted by onlookers and seen in the photos below, Harris was seen outside his Harlem townhouse, his face contorted with rage, dragging the boy by one arm down a steep set of icy cement steps.

Without his husband or a nanny present, the 41-year-old entertainer had a meltdown while getting Gideon and Harper off to school.

Onlookers said they were horrified by his “outrageous” parental behavior. Said one spectator: “I was scared for the poor little boy because of the way Neil was acting – it was completely out of character. He had turned into the daddy from hell!”

According to the eyewitness, Harris barked at his kids to come down the stoop to the street below – a steep incline of 12 cement steps. The eyewitness explains: “Normally, as a parent, you’d want to hold your child’s hand and help them navigate down the steps – but Neil didn’t do that. He went ahead of them. Harper scampered down to join her dad without incident – but her brother appeared to need extra coaxing. Neil was very impatient – and when Gideon was slowly plodding along, reaching to about the fourth step down, Neil angrily shot back up and roughly grabbed a hold of his little boy’s arm. He dragged the kid the rest of the way down. Neil had a jawlike grip on the child, causing him to cry. But he still yelled at him to hurry up!”

Once on the sidewalk, Harris – carrying a shopping bag and holding a coffee – quickly began walking down the street, leaving both children behind. “Gideon was still crying, but Neil didn’t seem to care. He wasn’t looking back at the kids,” said the eyewitness, adding that the children finally caught up to him and he hustled them into a waiting town car.

In a response about the incident to The Enquirer, Neil Patrick Harris said he did nothing wrong. His lawyer Martin Singer downplayed the incident, insisting Harris was simply “trying to get his 4-year-old twins into the car to take them to school,” and that “His son was misbehaving and refusing to walk to the car so Mr. Harris lifted him and carried him to the bottom of the steps. Mr. Harris did not drag Gideon down the steps, or injure him in any way The allegation that Mr. Harris committed child abuse by dragging his child down cement steps is outrageous … Mr. Harris was merely disciplining his child, as any responsible parent would do. Taking one’s child by the arm to direct his or her movements is much less severe than administering a spanking to the child.”

Do you agree with the Enquirer that Harris was abusing 4=year-old Gideon? I can see snow and ice on the steps even in the photos. I fully empathize with Gideon and understand why he was hesitant and slow going down the steps. If I were Harris, instead of forcibly dragging the boy down the steps, I would simply pick the child up and carry him down.

Arkansas State trooper: Bill and Hillary Clinton are swingers

L.D. Brown was an Arkansas state trooper who served as a bodyguard to Bill Clinton in the mid-1980s when Clinton was governor and, therefore, saw and knew a lot of the shenanigans (and worse) that went on.
On Nov. 10, 1997, Brown gave a deposition at the DoubleTree Hotel in Little Rock. The text of the deposition, published in full by The Washington Post on March 13, 1998, was released by Paula Jones’s lawyers, as part of their response to the Clinton legal team’s motion for summary judgement.

Note: A deposition is a witness’s sworn out-of-court testimony, used to gather information as part of the discovery process and, in limited circumstances, may be used at trial. The witness being deposed is called the “deponent.”

Paula Jones is a former Arkansas state employee who sued then-President Bill Clinton for sexual harassment. Clinton entered into an out-of-court settlement, agreeing to pay Jones and her attorneys a total of $850,000, before the lawsuit was dismissed pre-trial on the grounds that Jones failed to demonstrate damages. The Paula Jones case precipitated Clinton’s impeachment. Charges of perjury and obstruction of justice were brought against Clinton based on statements he made during the depositions for the Jones lawsuit about the nature of his relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, with whom he denied having a sexual relationship.

In his deposition, former state trooper Brown described how he had solicited women for Bill Clinton:

I would talk to them personally, sometimes give them my business card. If they were from out of town, I would find out where they were staying. If we were out of town and/or in town anywhere in Arkansas, I would try to get their telephone number and introduce them subsequently to the Governor…. I would usually say something like that I was his bodyguard or I was his state police officer.

Brown described a particular occasion when he accompanied Gov. Clinton to a Southern Regional Education board meeting in Boca Raton, Florida:

when it was time to go and pay the bill, the governor got in the car with the girl that I had given the card to, and we followed them to an area that was under development. It was kind of a remote area from this club… and they stayed back there in the car for a few minutes. I can’t remember how long…and then the governor came back and jumped in the backseat and we left and went back to the hotel…. Well, he [Clinton] indicated in so many words that she had performed oral sex on him.

Altogether, Brown said he’d solicited women for Clinton “maybe ten of fifteen times out of state” and “hundreds of times” in Arkansas.
When asked if he had any knowledge of whether Bill Clinton would meet women when he would go out jogging. Brown replied:

After he [Clinton] would leave jogging by himself [wearing jogging shorts], he would call me and have me come pick him up…. Sometimes he would call me…to let me know…he’d be at the Excelsior for a while, pick him up at such and such a time…. [Bill would] give me the room number where he was going to be…. Afterward when I would pick him up…He would be real concerned about where Hillary was and if she had called. “Do I look like I’ve been running?” things like that.

In 1999, Brown published his account as “a witness to almost all of the alleged offenses circling around Bill Clinton in Arkansas: misuse of state funds for sexual liasons, Whitewater, illegal campaign fundraising and bribery, as well as cocaine use and cocaine smuggling” in the book, Crossfire-Witness in the Clinton InvestigationMost of the book had been told under the penalty of perjury to investigators for Congress and the Office of Independent Counsel. Documentation for many events is included in an appendix.
Crossfire

The preceding is to establish that former Arkansas state trooper L.D. Brown is not a flake who spews nonsense.

Now that Hillary Clinton, from all indications, has her eyes set on running for president in 2016, The National Enquirer undertook a special investigation and succeeded in tracking down a testimony that L.D. Brown had made under oath during a government investigation into the mysterious 1993 suicide of the Clintons’ White House lawyer, Vince Foster. In his testimony, Brown said that Bill and Hillary Clinton are wild “swingers” – a bombshell disclosure 
that can ruin her chances of winning the White House in 2016.
Recall that it was the Enquirer — when other media refused to — that alone pursued and broke the scandalous story of then-Democratic vice-presidential candidate John Edwards’ adultery and “love child” with political groupie Rielle Hunter. (See “John Edwards, a cad to the end“)

Vince Foster, HIllary, Bill

L to r: Vince Foster, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton


Bob Hartlein reports for The National Enquirer, Nov. 14, 2014, that in his sworn testimony, Officer L.D. Brown said he had eyewitnessed the wife-swapping of Bill, Hillary, and their respective lovers.
Brown told independent counsel Kenneth Starr that he was guarding then-Arkansas Governor Clinton and his wife at a Little Rock restaurant while they dined in a private dining room with two other couples.
What happened was “a diagonal swap,” bolstered by booze. Officer Brown watched in astonishment as Hillary and Vince Foster kissed and fondled each other, while Foster’s wife looked on. Bill sat just a few feet away, kissing and hugging the wife of the third couple, whom Brown described as a “beautiful, gleaming Kewpie doll with brains.”
When the couples left the restaurant, Brown said Hillary and Foster were “drunk, kissing passionately,” and Foster had “his hand on Hillary’s rear and is just squeezing it all to hell.”
Brown also said both Bill and Hillary had admitted to him that they had an “open marriage.” Bill referred to the wife-swapping, saying: “We need to be happy, satisfied. Some people are satisfied in different ways!”
In an exclusive interview with the Enquirer, former Clinton aide Larry Nichols confirmed Officer Brown’s testimony — that the Clintons have carried their secret “as swingers all these years.” Nichols added: “But it will blow up when she runs for President – and could keep her from her and Bill’s dream of getting back into the White House.”
This is the same Larry Nichols who disclosed that he had killed people for the Clintons. See “Bombshell: Long-time Clinton associate says he killed people for Bill & Hillary.”

How to Spot a Liar

Humans deceive.

That’s the plain and painful truth.

In the increasingly dark times we live in, we need to practice spiritual jujitsu or self-defense, and hone our ability to discern when someone is lying to us, especially if that someone is a politician because the lies will affect our lives, negatively.

Pamela Meyer is the author of the book, LieSpotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception. In this TED lecture in 2011, she offers many very useful tips on how to spot a liar.

Below are the notes I took from the video. [Words between brackets colored teal are mine.]

Some Facts About Lying

  1. On any given day, we lie or are lied to from 10 to 200 times.
  2. Lying is a cooperative act: A lie is effective only when another cooperates with it because it’s something we want. That is why although we say we’re against lying, covertly (secretly) we’re for it.
  3. We lie 3 times within 10 minutes of meeting a stranger.
  4. We lie more to strangers than to people we know.
  5. Extraverts lie more than introverts. [Politicians are extraverts!]
  6. Men lie 8 times more about themselves than women; women lie more to protect others.
  7. We lie once in every 10 interactions with our spouse. The number drops to 3 in interactions with an unmarried partner.
  8. The more intelligent the species, the larger the cerebral cortex, the more likely is the species to be deceptive. That suggests lying has an evolutionary advantage.
  9. Human beings lie from the very beginning [Original Sin: We are born tinder for sin (fomes peccati)]:
  • Babies already deceive: They fake a cry, then pause and watch to see if anyone buys their fake crying.
  • One-year-olds know how to conceal.
  • Two-year-olds bluff.
  • Five-year-olds lie outright, e.g., they manipulate with flattery.
  • Nine-year-olds have mastered the coverup.
  • By college age, humans like to their parents in one out of 5 interactions.
  • By the time we enter the working world, we’re immersed in lies and deception.

Lie Spotting: How to Spot a Liar

There are two patterns [or modes] of deception: Speech and Body Language.

1. Speech:

  • Non-contracted denial: A denial that is over-determined, i.e., employs formal, instead of informal, language to deny, e.g., Bill Clinton said “I did not have sex with that woman . . . Miss Lewinsky.”
  • Distancing language: Use of language that (unconsciously) distances the speaker from the subject. Example: “I did not have sex with that woman.”

Bill Clinton

  • Qualifying language: e.g., saying “to tell the truth” or “in all candor.”
  • Repeating the question in its entirety. [My guess: this is a tactic to buy the liar more time to think of how to lie.]
  • Over-sharing: Peppering one’s account with too much detail.

2. Body language:

Freud said, “No mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips.”

  • Liars, instead of fidgeting, actually freeze their upper bodies when they’re lying.
  • Liars look you in the eye a little too much, to compensate for the myth that liars avoid eye contact.
  • Liars smile a fake smile, i.e., they smile only with their mouth, but not with their eyes, which can’t be faked.
  • Attitude: An honest person is cooperative, on your side; enthusiastic, willing and helpful in getting to the truth, willing to brainstorm, provide details; feels infuriated if falsely accused, not just in flashes but throughout the entire course of the interview or conversation; favors strict, instead of lenient punishment for transgressors. A deceptive person is withdrawn; looks down; lowers his voice; pauses; peppers his story with lots of and irrelevant details; tells the story in strict chronological order.

Giveaway body language (beginning at 11:40 mark):

  • Shaking our head when we say “yes” (e.g., Democrat VP candidate John Edwards, 12:00 to 12:30 mark in video).
  • Shrugging our shoulders when we tell a convincing lie.
  • Duping delight: Smiling with delight at getting away with a terrible crime (e.g., O. J. Simpson).

  • Masked expression: Be on the lookout for spotting the real expression that’s masked or concealed by the fake expression, which leaks out in a flash, e.g., murderers often mask sadness. The most important and dangerous masked expression that we need to look out for is CONTEMPT, i.e., thinking oneself as being superior to others; regarding others with scorn. The masked expression of contempt is marked by one lip corner pulled up and in, e.g., Dick Cheney.

An even more obvious sign of contempt is surreptitiously and slyly giving people the F-you middle finger, as in this:

Other indicators of deception:

  • Liars shift their eye-blink rate.
  • Liars point their feet toward an exit.
  • Liars put barrier objects between themselves and the person interviewing or conversing with them.
  • Liars alter their vocal tone, often going much lower.

How to Spot a Truth-Teller: What the Truth Looks like

1. Liars: Meyer used a video of Diane Downs — a murderous mother who lied about shooting her kids at close range — and points to the discrepancy between Downs’ cool demeanor and a great tragedy. Even more telling is Downs’ creepy smile after talking about her children’s death — Duping Delight.

2. Truth-tellers: Meyer then contrasts the video of the lying mother with a video of Ellen Runnion — a grieving mother confronting her daughter’s murderer-torturer in court. Runnion showed no false emotion, but only the authentic raw emotion of a mother in agony.

Does this remind you of all the videos of the Sandy Hook parents whose children supposedly were killed by alleged mass murderer Adam Lanza? See:

3 signs Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016

Hillary Benghazi

Sign No. 1:

Noted political writer Edward Klein claims in his latest book, The Amateur, that Bill Clinton had made a secret deal (a conspiracy!) with the POS. Although Bill “I never had sex with that woman” Clinton thinks Obama to be inept and incapable of performing the duties of the presidency, Bill endorsed the POS in 2012 in return for the POS endorsing Bill’s wife, Hillary “What difference does it make” Rodham, for president in 2016. (Source)
Klein says the pact was hammered out at a secret meeting held at the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, N.Y. Bill Clinton agreed to give a rousing nomination speech for Obama at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. In exchange, Obama would endorse Hillary as his successor. (Source)
Question: Is it still a Faustian pact if two devils make a pact with each other?

Barack Obama Sworn In As U.S. President For A Second TermMoloch (l) claps as Beelzebub embraces President Lucifer at his swearing-in ceremony, January 20, 2013.

Sign No. 2:

Last month, the publisher Simon & Schuster told the Associated Press that Hillary “What difference does it make” Clinton, 65, is working on a memoir and policy book about her years as Pres. Lucifer’s secretary of state, tentatively scheduled for a June 2014 publication. Financial terms were not disclosed, but Hillary “What difference does it make” Clinton reportedly had received $8 million for her 2003 memoir, Living History, also published by Simon & Schuster. The AP writes: “Her book will likely be anticipated on several levels – as a possible signal of a presidential run….”
National Enquirer claims they were told by publishing industry sources and insiders close to Hillary “What difference does it make” Clinton that she has decided to tell all in a blockbuster $25 million memoir – so there will be no secrets left to uncover when she runs for president in 2016. The “tell all” will include the truth about her bisexuality and what really happened to Osama bin Laden’s corpse.
Hey, maybe all those rumors about Hillary and her closest aide Huma Abedin are true! [snark] Abedin, who has longstanding connections with the radical Muslim Brotherhood, is the wife of disgraced former New York congressman Anthony “look at my weiner” Weiner. Weiner, having no shame, is now running for office again.
Before you start snickering, do remember that it was National Enquirer that, alone, doggedly pursued and broke the story of former Democrat vice presidential candidate John Edwards’ adultery and “love child” with Rielle Hunter. For that, the Enquirer was nominated for a Pulitzer.

Sign No. 3:

Here’s the third sure-fire sign that Hillary “What difference does it make” Clinton will run for president in 2016.
She got a new face!!!
The Daily Mail sycophantically reports that on the evening of June 2, 2013, “Hillary Clinton had America’s fashion elite in stitches last night, during her hilarious speech at the CFDA Fashion Awards. The former Secretary of State … got a standing ovation as she took to the podium at New York’s Lincoln Center….”
Here’s a pic of Hillary “What difference does it make” Clinton at the CFDA Fashion Awards. A 65-year-old woman without a line on her forehead! It must be a miracle!

Washington, D.C. is America's adultery center


Bill Clinton, John Edwards. Newt Gingrich, John Ensign.
The first was a U.S. president; the third a former Congressman and House speaker; the second and fourth are former U.S. senators. What do these men have in common, other than their being major Washington Beltway politicians?
While Clinton and Edwards are Democrats, Gingrich and Ensign are Republicans. All are adulterers.
So it comes as no surprise that, by one measure — those who sign up for the “Life is short. Have an affair” website Ashley Madison — Washington, D.C. has more adulterers than any other city in America.
Neal Augenstein reports for wtop.com, Feb. 24, 2012, that more people per capita in the D.C. metropolitan area sign up for the website Ashley Madison than in any other city, according to the site, which helps people looking to stray. Washington has the highest per capita membership among the site’s 13 million users, The Washington Post reports. The site claims 38,000 registered users in the District.
Ashley Madison’s CEO Noel Biderman rationalized to the Post that it’s because D.C. has so many successful people. People become successful from taking professional risks that often pay off; that risk-taking personality trait also prompts personal risks such as adultery. “The more successful you are, the more prone to cheating you are, and Washington is full of successful people looking for something outside their marriage.”
So the political capital of the United States of America is also the adultery capital! No wonder our country is so screwed up.
Founding Father John Adams certainly anticipated this sad state of affairs, writing in a letter to Mercy Warren in 1776:
“Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superiour to all private passions.”

Rev. Jesse Jackson is a deadbeat dad

Another “Progressive” behaving badly.
I’m an unabashed fan of supermarket tabloid The National Enquirer because it alone had the guts and dogged persistence to break the story of former Senator and the Democratic Party’s 2004 Vice Presidential nominee John Edwards’ adulterous affair and “love child”. For that, the Enquirer was nominated for journalism’s coveted Pulitzer prize in 2010.
11 years ago, the National Enquirer also broke the story that Rev. Jesse Jackson, Baptist minister and self-appointed spokesman for African Americans, had an extramarital affair that resulted in a daughter. ABC News noted that:

“The age of the daughter indicates Jackson, 59, was likely having the affair with Karin Stanford, a 39-year-old worker at his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition office in Washington, even as he counseled President Clinton after public revelations of an affair with Monica Lewinsky, an intern at the White House.”

Now we can add dead-beat dad to Jackson’s hypocrisy.

You can buy a used copy of this book for $0.20 on Amazon!

Patricia Shipp reports for the Enquirer, Jan. 18, 2012:

The mother of Jesse Jackson’s love child is blasting him as a deadbeat dad for falling behind on child sup­port payments!

In official documents filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by The ENQUIRER, Karin Stanford claims the 70-year-old famed civil rights leader owes $11,694.50 for their daughter Ashley, now 12.

Stanford was a top aide with Jackson’s Rainbow PUSHCoalition, and The ENQUIRER ex­posed their long-term extramarital affair in a bombshell world exclu­sive in January 2001.

After admitting paternity, the former Democratic presidential hopeful paid court-ordered support and regularly visited Ashley at Stanford’s Cali­fornia home for the past decade.

But according to the court documents, Jackson – who’s remained married to wife Jackie – failed to pay support from De­cember 2010 until August 2011, including minimal monthly fees of $400.

“Karin has tried so many times to work with Jesse on their financial agreement,” a source told The ENQUIRER. “But he was only paying when he felt like it, so she’s taking him to court.”

According to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4 out of every 10 babies (39.7%) born in America in 2007 were to unmarried women — what used to be called “illegitimate” births. The percentage of illegitimate births among blacks was even higher: 71.6% or 7 out of every 10.
Instead of setting a good example for black Americans, the Reverend Jesse Jackson has chosen to behave none the better. Nor can he blame racism for his own behavior.
Remember that the next time he cries “Racism!” to extort yet more money for his Rainbow Coalition.

John Edwards has life-threatening heart condition?

Source: John Edwards has life-threatening heart condition

Bet his hair will look good during surgery...


CNN:  A federal judge disclosed Friday that former presidential candidate John Edwards has a life-threatening heart condition, a court source confirmed to CNN.  Edwards had sought a delay in his criminal corruption trial, scheduled to begin this month.
Attorneys and the federal judge met in a North Carolina courtroom Friday afternoon for a status hearing regarding the pending trial of Edwards, a former U.S. senator.  Edwards appeared at Friday’s hearing. His lawyers had made the motion for a delay under seal, but some of its details were publicly revealed by the judge in the open hearing.
The criminal trial has been delayed until at least March 26, according to the court source. Judge Catherine Eagles said she has been in contact with Edwards’ cardiologist, who recommended a postponement, saying Edwards is scheduled to undergo surgery next month.  Edwards has to provide the court with a written medical update by February 28, according to court records.
One legal expert, Marcellus McRae, a trial lawyer and former federal prosecutor, said he doubted that Edwards’ illness would influence a jury verdict.  “Edwards’s illness may prompt the public, including potential jurors, to view him in a more sympathetic light. However, it is doubtful that this will have any impact on the outcome of his trial,” McRae said.
Edwards is charged with six felony and misdemeanor counts related to donations to and payments from his failed 2008 presidential campaign. He is accused of conspiracy, issuing false statements and violating campaign contribution laws. He denies any wrongdoing.
Edwards’ wife, Elizabeth, died of cancer in December 2010. The couple had separated that year, shortly after Edwards admitted that he had fathered a daughter with Rielle Hunter, who was hired to make documentary videos for his campaign for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
His illness may make jurors view him in a more sympathetic light?  I seriously doubt that, unless they are democrats.  Look how quickly they forgave Bill Clinton for cheating on his wife, numerous times.
If his illness is life-threatening, then why isn’t his surgery happening ASAP?  Why next month?  Wonder what his cardiologist said in that letter to garner support from the judge to delay his trial.  Inquiring minds want to know…
