The entrapment accusation came out in July 2021 by BuzzFeed of all places. The outlet reviewed the evidence and found out that at least 12 of the FBI confidential informants had a larger role in the plot:

Julie Kelly had a great thread:

*Limited cross examin by defense (for 1st time he said, also extremely rare in criminal cases) of 2 cooperating witnesses allegedly part of the conspiracy

*Repeatedly scolded defense in front of jury; accused defense of wasting time over “crap” questioning

*Gave unwieldy…

Judge Jonker, a GWB appointee, handled this trial far differently than the first.

You’re telling me a jury didn’t convict on a SINGLE COUNT in first trial with 2 more defendants but returned all guilty in less than half the time with 2 fewer defendants?

Jonker got the message.

I hope there’s an appeal.  I’d contribute to a defense fund.

Yes, they were stupid bozos but the FBI did the entrapment.

Three Michigan State University students have been charged over the hazing death of a teenager who died last year from acute alcohol intoxication after being found passed out in his frat house covered in vomit and urine.

Phat Nguyen, 21, died in November after a brutal night of drinking at the Pi Alpha Phi off-campus fraternity house in East Lansing, Michigan.

Ethan Cao, Hoang Pham, and Andrew Nguyen were all charged with one count each of felony hazing resulting in death, and three misdemeanor counts of hazing resulting in physical injury for three other boys who were also taken to the hospital on the night of the incident but who survived.

Sorry, but there ought to be a law. Your fraternity “hazes”; your frat is dead!  

It’s a Gooferment Skrule, so by extension it is permitting this to happen under its auspices.

Maybe MSU should do penance by suspending all student activities for four years?

At the very least, the MSU administration should be fired for “failure to supervise” and “loss of confidence in their ability to lead a University.”


POLITICAL: Michigan Voters Smash Tax Hike Referendum

Michigan Voters Smash Tax Hike Referendum
By Gary North
The Tea Party Economist
May 12, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Proposal 1 suffered the worst defeat Tuesday of any Michigan ballot measure since the current Constitution was adopted more than a half-century ago, as 80 percent of voters rejected the sales tax increase and road funding plan. . . .

*** and ***

Saginaw County businessman Paul Mitchell set up an opposition group and began lambasting the proposal for directing $700 million to areas unrelated to repairing roads, such as education, cities, public transit and an expanded tax break for the working poor.

Mitchell called the non-road spending a “a $700 million toll to special interests,” defining the issue before the “yes” campaign could respond on the airwaves.

*** end quote ***

Nice to see that the Michigan voters ain’t buying the Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association, representing road builders, $5.4 million Safe Roads Yes propaganda.

Pretty good. Put in 5.4 to get 700 back.

With the appropriate payoffs to the politicians and astroturf groups.

No wonder “We, The Sheeple” are bankrupt.

Morally and fiscally.

SURVIVAL: Being fragile “animal” in a dangerous world

2 missing sisters visiting family in Michigan found after nearly 2 weeks
Published April 25, 2015

The women – Leslie Roy, 52, and Lee Marie Wright, 56 – survived on Girl Scout cookies while stuck in their snow-crippled SUV. A pilot noticed a reflection off the Ford Explorer and landed the police helicopter on shore, ending the women’s unexpected wilderness adventure.

Tough world out there. Especially when you’re unprepared.

It’s not like you don’t have room in an SUV for a “Bug Out”, “Get Home”, or “Holy Hell What’s Happening” bag.

Fire making materials, survival blankets, food and water seem obvious.

And people think an SUV is a ATV.

At least they were smart enough to stay with the SUV!

Dumb that they didn’t start burning the spare after a week?

Recently when I was driving from Manchester NH to Keene NH, I found large stretches with no cell phone service. So you can’t depend upon that.

Most important is a survival mindset. 

If you’re depending upon a road being plowed, then you better do some research.

When in Vegas and we’d go for a ride, there were always two gallons of water in the rental car. And we were NOT going of the beaten track. But it’s dry and hot there.

And, finally, you always have to leave a route with your “canary”. That is someone who knows where you are, where you’re going, and when you’ll check back in. I acted as a “canary” for someone traveling alone in Japan. (We even had a code word!)

These women were very lucky.

The human being is a fragile “animal” in a dangerous world.

RANT: Sportsmanship missing

5:27 first half of Michigan Ohio State …

… in real time in looked like the Michigan guard creamed the Ohio State player …

… on replay it’s obvious that it was a flop …

… the refs were ready to call a flagrant, but went to the video replay …

… changed it to a no call …


Sorry not good enough for me.

The flopping player should get a technical for “bad acting”, delay of game, or unsportsmanlike conduct.

If the refs were going to toss the Michigan guard for rough play, then the Ohio State player should be at risk of the same penalty.




Play hard, but it always has to be “honest”.
