Eric Prince’s Perjurious Slip of the Tongue…

This interview with Eric Prince is worth a listen. Who is he? He’s a former Navy Seal (impressive), he’s also former CEO of a government services and security company called Blackwater USA, which essentially pays civilians to act as security in locations around the world where American troops have been withdrawn. It is privatized military for profit and it made him over a billion dollars- paid by us, the American taxpayer.

Here’s a shocker, he’s a Trump supporter, and brother to, least likely to succeed at her job as Secretary of Education, Betsy P (potential grizzlies) Devos.

The following interview should set the standard for journalism.

Mehdi Hasan, of Al Jazeera is the journalist questioning Eric Prince. To say he’s good at what he does is an understatement. He is relentless, armed with facts he shoots with rapid-fire in response to every denial. He’s fearless. This was a battle of wits to which Eric Prince arrived unarmed.

Hasan flustered Prince to the point that he admitted to having been at the infamous (nothingburger) Trump Tower meeting in August 2016. You may remember it as the meeting Don Jr said was to discuss Russian adoptions. Jr perjured himself over this meeting.

In Prince’s case, his mere attendance was a fact he failed to disclose when questioned by the House Intelligence Committee… his admission in the interview, to having been there, was an inadvertent confession of perjury.

I think perjury is still illegal… even for Trump’s people.

Again, it’s well worth a listen.

Manafort’s Sentence is a Crime

Yesterday, Thursday March 7, 2019, for those of you in other planetary time zones, Paul Manafort, (presidential campaign chairman for Donald Trump), a man with shady Russian and Ukrainian ties, (understatement), was sentenced to 3.9 years in prison by Judge T.S. Ellis. (Not to be confused with long dead 19th century American poet T.S.Elliot.) Judge Ellis, I understand, also goes by the name Judge Fvckwad.

Paul Manafort’s defense team begged for an unheard of lenient sentence of 5 years.

Math time:

12 months x 5 years = 60 months requested

Manafort received 3.9 years = 47 months

I can’t show my work because I copied the answer,

but the answer is…

13 months… Manafort received a sentence 13 months less than the insanely lenient sentence his attorneys requested.

Manafort’s lenient sentence has caused outrage among anyone with an understanding of white collar criminal privilege. I tried to point out to a few people that the sentence did not encompass crimes related to the 2016 election. From what I understand, and I am quite frequently wrong, (see yesterday’s post), it only pertained to Manafort’s $6 million tax fraud.

Still, let’s put this in perspective. Paul Manafort failed to disclose $16 million to the IRS. Let those among us whom haven’t forgotten about $16 million cast the first stone, (not Roger Stone please). With that “omission”, Paul Manafort defrauded the IRS of $6 million. The law recommends 19-24 YEARS for this crime.

The punishment Manafort received was the equivalent of what one can expect if they steal $100, while not rich or white.

Remember how Donald Trump lost the popular vote by 3 million? And remember how he was desperate to have people believe the loss was due to (nonexistent) “widespread voter fraud among democrats”? Remember when Trump found his scapegoat, a woman who voted while on probation, not knowing she wasn’t allowed to do so? That woman who cast a single vote, by mistake, received a harsher sentence than Paul Manafort, a traitor.

Prior to announcing the sentence, Judge Ellis said Manafort has led an “otherwise blameless life.”

But, Manafort has gout, so let’s overlook all that.

I am a Pollyanna at heart. I look for a shred of good news to focus on with everything in life, because if I don’t do that, anguish, despair and apathy put me in a chokehold, and then who will put my towels in the dryer?

The ray of light I found was the idea that: “tomorrow is another day.” Tomorrow, actually next week, Paul Manafort will be back in court to be sentenced for other crimes. He will eventually be tried for treason, and when the feds have had their fill, the southern district of New York gets to eat… then he’ll be the one “who’s sorry now”. The odds are pretty good that Paul Manafort will die in prison.

Again, I’ll say it without any poetic 🙄 flourish, Paul Manafort has yet to be charged with anything relating to the 2016 election.

And let me point this out, Robert Mueller’s team of prosecutors were not happy when Judge Ellis announced his 3.9 year decision.

I don’t care about Paul Manafort’s ailing health, he came to the hearing in a wheelchair with a bandaged foot, to ask the judge for compassion.

“To say I feel humiliated and ashamed would be a gross understatement.” ~Paul Manafort

Fvck that noise.

Of those Robert Mueller has prosecuted as part of this Trump/Russia investigation, six have been sentenced so far, and believe it or not, Paul Manafort’s 3.9 year sentence has been the harshest doled out to a Trump associate to date.

Next week, Judge Amy Berman Jackson of US District Court for the District of Columbia will sentence Manafort for two conspiracy charges… so chin up… but those crimes only carry a maximum penalty of five years.

Ugh… I have towels in the washer.

And that came from U.S. intelligence.” ~ Malcom Nance
