A mind twister: one complex suicide

Hat Tip: Kevin Collins

Do you like to read a good murder mystery? Not even Law and Order would attempt to capture this mess. This is an unbelievable twist of fate! At the 1994 annual awards dinner given for Forensic Science (AAFS), President, Dr. Don Harper Mills astounded his audience with the legal complications of a bizarre death.

Here is the story:

On March 23, 1994, the medical examiner viewed the body of Ronald Opus, and concluded that he died from a shotgun wound to the head.

Mr. Opus had jumped from the top of a ten-story building intending to commit suicide. He left a note to the effect indicating his despondency. As he fell past the ninth floor, his life was interrupted by a shotgun blast passing through a window, which killed him instantly. Neither the shooter nor the deceased was aware that a safety net had been installed just below the eighth floor level to protect some building workers, and that Ronald Opus would not have been able to complete his suicide the way he had planned.

The room on the ninth floor, where the shotgun blast emanated, was occupied by an elderly man and his wife. They were arguing vigorously and he was threatening her with a shotgun. The man was so upset that when he pulled the trigger, he completely missed his wife, and the pellets went through the window, striking Mr. Opus.

When one intends to kill subject 'A' but kills subject 'B' in the attempt, one is guilty of the murder of subject 'B.'

When confronted with the murder charge, the old man and his wife were both adamant, and both said that they thought the shotgun was not loaded. The old man said it was a long-standing habit to threaten his wife with the unloaded shotgun. He had no intention to murder her. Therefore the killing of Mr. Opus appeared to be an accident; that is, assuming the gun had been accidentally loaded.

The continuing investigation turned up a witness who saw the old couple's son loading the shotgun about six weeks prior to the fatal accident. It transpired that the old lady had cut off her son's financial support and the son, knowing the propensity of his father to use the shotgun threateningly, loaded the gun with the expectation that his father would shoot his mother.

Since the loader of the gun was aware of this, he was guilty of the murder even though he didn't actually pull the trigger. The case now becomes one of murder on the part of the son for the death of Ronald Opus.

Now comes the exquisite twist . . .

Further investigation revealed that the son was, in fact, Ronald Opus. He had become increasingly despondent over the failure of his attempt to engineer his mother's murder. This led him to jump off the ten-story building on March 23rd, only to be killed by a shotgun blast passing through the ninth story window. The son, Ronald Opus, had actually murdered himself. So the medical examiner closed the case as a suicide.

Benghazi Warrior UNLOADS On Hillary After She Scolds White House For Hesitating ‘To Defend A Diplomat’

Ed. Leftists are known for wanton hypocrisy but Hillary Clinton has turned it into and art form.

The following article appeared in the Daily Wire on July 20th

By Amanda Prestigiacamo

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday night received a pointed tongue lashing from Benghazi warrior Kris Paronto after Clinton audaciously scolded the White House for not defending a U.S. diplomat to her liking.
Kris Paronto

Paronto is a former Special Forces officer, a surviving member of a six-man security team who claims he was given a "stand down" order from a top CIA officer following distress calls from the State Department concerning a terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, as noted by Politico. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were murdered during the attack; Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State at the time.

Hillary was reacting to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' remarks regarding the president and former U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul. "McFaul has been listed by the Russian government as a person of interest in the Bill Browder/Russia financial scam, and President Trump allegedly told President Putin on Monday that the U.S. would consider sending McFaul and Browder to Moscow for 'questioning,'" reports Real Clear Politics.

"Ambassador [McFaul] is a patriot who has spent his career standing up for America. To see the White House even hesitate to defend a diplomat is deeply troubling," wrote the twice-failed presidential candidate in a tweet.

Obviously, such criticism about hesitation in defending a U.S. diplomat coming from Hillary Clinton is incredibly galling, especially for Mr. Paronto, who lived through the horror.

"Are you f’n kidding me [Hillary Clinton]?!!!" wrote Paronto via Twitter. "You left Ambassador Stevens and us to die in Benghazi then spewed lie after lie to the family members of my dead teammates and to the world to cover it up and now you have the nerve to talk about defending diplomats?! You are disgusting!"

"There is no sensationalism in that: We were told to ‘stand down,'" Paronto told House Select Committee in 2013. "Those words were used verbatim — 100 percent. … If the truth of it affects someone’s political career? Well, I’m sorry. It happens."

Tommy Robinson Lawyer: Judge Did Not View Evidence, Islamists Threatening Acid Attack on Tommy’s Wife

The following article appeared in Breitbart on July 21st

The judge who rushed to send activist Tommy Robinson to jail did not even watch the full video in which he supposedly breached contempt of court laws, his lawyers have claimed.
Geoffrey Marson, "judge" who unlawfully sent Robinson to prison

He is currently being held in segregation for his own safety in prison, but a radical Islamic extremist has managed to deliver a message to his cell threatening to kill him and attack his wife with acid.

The message was reportedly from jailed terror supporter Sayful Islam, from Robinson’s hometown of Luton, and used his spouse’s full name, The Times reports.

He was sent to prison just five hours after his arrest, with court documents seen by the newspaper alleging his defense lawyer at the time had also not watched the broadcast in its entirety.

In the live broadcast to Facebook, now deleted, Robinson can clearly be heard saying he is aware of reporting restrictions, which his lawyers argue shows he was attempting to avoid breaching them.

Robinson was jailed in May after filming outside Leeds Crown Court during the trial of an alleged rape gang which was being hidden from the public.

Judges also banned reporting on Robinson’s sentencing in the British media, with many articles wiped from the Internet.

Jeremy Dein QC, in his written grounds of appeal, claimed Robinson was subjected to “summary justice in the extreme, unnecessary and unfair.”

He added: “He was in no position to give clear instructions, and could not be expected to make sound decisions in pressurized circumstances, his liberty being at stake.”

The activist is serving 13 months for contempt of court and breaching a suspended sentence for the same offense.

Earlier this week his appeal was delayed, with Dein arguing there had been procedural “deficiencies” giving rise to “prejudice” during his sentencing.

Simply communicating with Robinson had been difficult as it took so long for him to be brought out from his cell, the lawyer added.

Which specific parts of the contempt laws Robinson had broken were also not revealed, Dein said.

“The proceedings were unnecessarily and unjustifiably rushed. They were conducted in haste,” he argued.

Confirmed: Jeff Sessions Chooses to Go Down in History as Modern Day Benedict Arnold

The following article appeared in Gateway Pundit on July 20th

Guest post by Joe Hoft

We published this post in November of 2017 – each day it becomes more and more apparent that Jeff Sessions is failing America and his duties as Attorney General. We feel it is time to post this again -
Benedict and Jeff

Benedict Arnold is the name that goes down in US history as the greatest traitor to the nation. 

According to

Benedict Arnold was born in Norwich, Connecticut, on January 14, 1741. A member of the Sons of Liberty, Arnold rose to the rank of general in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Frustrated by the lack of recognition, he subsequently switched sides to the British and plotted the surrender of West Point. When his traitorous plans came to light, Arnold escaped capture and eventually made his way to England. He died in London on June 14, 1801.

The US today faces a time as important as the American Revolution. President Trump was voted into office by the American people last year at this time. He won in an electoral landslide. Before the election he was attacked, but since the election the prior Obama Administration, the Clintons, the Democratic Party, the mainstream media, Hollywood, some elitist Republicans and the ‘deep state’ have tried to steal his win. This concerted attack in large part may be because liberals in the US don’t want President Trump to uncover their illegal and traitorous actions when Obama was President.

The only thing stopping President Trump now is his own Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions recused himself from any investigations into Russia allowing a corrupt investigation into the President’s actions with Russia and/or any other dirt the investigators can come up with. The investigation is not founded in US law, it’s a farce. The investigators are biased, former Hillary and Obama team members and supporters and many, if not all, are involved with the Uranium One scandal.

Uranium One refers to the sale of 20% of US uranium to the Russians by the Obama Administration and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The Clintons made $146 million on the deal and no doubt Obama did too. Sessions’ Assistant Attorney General, Rosenstein approved the Uranium One deal and then he hired Mueller to clean it up. At the time the deal was approved there was a special FBI investigation ongoing into the deal and it was covered up until only a few weeks ago. The Clintons know Uranium One was a big deal as reported in a leaked email from the Clinton campaign.

Many experts in the case believe that the Uranium One deal is the biggest scandal in American history. If Jeff Sessions doesn’t soon order an investigation into the scandal he will go down as the greatest traitor in US history – even worse than Benedict Arnold himself.

Since that time the Mueller Special Counsel has committed a series of criminal acts that will change the US legal system for the generations to come.  On Friday we now hear about his angry Democrat attorneys calling in a New York madam for questioning and to further embarrass the duly elected president.

Once again, Jeff Sessions is AWOL.

AG Sessions – either investigate the Clinton, Obama crimes, end the Mueller witch hunt or resign.  Your legacy is already clear.  AG Sessions will likely  go down as one of the biggest traitors in US history.

The 2018 mid-term elections will be the most honest political campaign in our lifetime

Ed. When ignorant, inexperienced Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated Rep. Joe Crowley in the primary for New York's 14th congressional district, Democrat Party Marxists and socialists were tickled pink. But more level-headed liberals like Joe Lieberman knew that dedicated, outspoken socialists like Ocasio-Cortez would drive voters away from the party.

In spite of the support of an understanding, pro-left media, Ocasio-Cortez has managed to make a fool of herself during interviews. Old-schoolers like Lieberman know that the Democrat Party is in enough trouble, having been shoved so far to the left that members found themselves supporting MS 13 gangbangers! This dangerous and open contempt for America's voters and values must eventually spell doom for Democrats across the nation; even on the coasts. 


by Kevin Collins

For at least twenty years this showdown has been brewing. Year after year Democrats were able to run and hide from who they really are. Year after year conservatives tried in vain to make the Democrats stand and defend who they really are; and now they have to. Finally, the waiting is over.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, America hating Marxist

The election Democrats have long feared is rushing toward them. The hiding is over. What the conservatives were never able to do, The Crazies in the Democrats’ own party have finally achieved. The 2018 mid-term- elections will be the most honest contest between competing philosophies of governance since 1932.

Barring the appearance of a total Black Swan event, the results will be a devastating defeat for Democrats across the board.

The differences between what Democrats stand for and say is good for America and what Americans have already determined is best for us could not be clearer or more diametrically opposite. Moreover, the tangible evidence for each side’s arguments are in the news every day for all to see.

On every important issue from border security to Second Amendment rights, economic growth, freedom of religious practice, cutting taxes, the integrity of the FBI CIA and other federal agencies, the Democrats are on the wrong side and are against America.

They even attack the concept of “Make America Great Again,” as if that was harmful to us.

When Americans vote in November the choice of freedom and economic growth with expanded opportunities versus being forced to pay the Democrats, so they can buy votes will be a front and center choice.

The Democrats’ real agenda of having power over our lives to enrich themselves will be plainly spelled out. This time Democrats can’t lie. This time they can’t trick as many voters and they won’t win.

Their new leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will not allow lies. She thinks socialism is so wonderful that once she educates Americans about the joys of “free stuff” we will gladly sign up for our Welfare benefits.

She is the gift that keeps on giving. She will force the truth out of the Democrats better than the feckless Republicans ever could.

We finally have them pinned down. The truth will destroy the Democrats in November and for years to come.
