Judge Jeanine: “The D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg Is A Drunk!” (Video)

“A famous Court of Appeals judge once said, a Grand Jury could indict a ham sandwich. Now I believe in the rule of law, but I’m not going to sugarcoat this one,” Judge Jeanine Pirro said at the start of her opening statement, Saturday night..

“The indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry for abuse of his veto power and coercion of a public servant –  is pure unadulterated hogwash! It makes D.A.s like me cringe in embarrassment,” she thundered. “No one disputes that the law gives the governor the power to veto funding.”

“A little backstory, here…” the judge purred, signalling she was about to drop the hammer. “The D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg is a drunk! Yes! The chief law enforcement officer of Austin County (she means Travis County) Texas is not just a drunk – she’s a convicted drunk driver. She actually spent time in jail. Imagine! The chief law enforcement officer is a convict who served jail time!”

Pirro went on to say that she has no sympathy for drunk drivers. “They don’t have to get behind the wheel of a car,” she said. “I’ve seen the consequences of drunk driving – innocents slaughtered by thousands of pounds of steel because a drunk CHOSE to get behind the wheel of a car.”

But the judge wasn’t through. “Folks, it’s even worse than this,” she continued. “Her blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit. And her behavior both before and after her arrest was so outrageous, so threatening, so belligerent, so combative – the woman had to be strapped down! And this woman actually thinks that she should remain the person who decides who gets indicted and who doesn’t?!”

Pirro had on Democrat strategist Joe Trippi, who was in full agreement with her (and  David Axelrod!) He called the move  “way beyond the pale” and that it “reeks of politics all the way around.”

Trippi predicted that the indictment would actually help Perry in the Republican primaries.

Plus, an extensive analysis from prosecutor Patrick Frey.Words truly fail to describe what an outrageous and unsupportable abuse of prosecutorial power this is. The special prosecutor, Michael McCrum, has no business being given prosecutorial authority — and the fact that Obama considered him for a U.S. Attorney position should deeply frighten anyone who cares about the integrity of the criminal justice system.”

Egyptian Media Reports: Morsi’s Wife Threatening To Expose Hillary and Morsi’s “Special Relationship”

HillaryClintonPresidentMorsi

According to Egyptian media, the wife of  ousted Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi, is threatening to expose “the special relationship” between the Muslim Brotherhood leader and the Obama administration. She is the second Muslim brotherhood insider who has threatened to produce documents exposing the close relationship.

Raymond Ibrahim of Jihad Watch reports that Nagla Mahmoud, Morsi’s wife, is reportedly angry at some statements recently made by Hillary Clinton, including that Morsi was “naïve” and “unfit for Egypt’s presidency.”

In the words of El-Mogaz News, Morsi’s wife “is threatening to expose the special relationship between her husband and Hillary Clinton, after the latter attacked the ousted [president], calling him a simpleton who was unfit for the presidency.  Sources close to Nagla confirmed that she has threatened to publish the letters exchanged between Morsi and Hillary.”

The report continues by saying that Nagla accuses Hillary of denouncing her former close ally, the Brotherhood’s Morsi, in an effort to foster better relations with his successor, Egypt’s current president, Sisi—even though, as Nagla laments, “he [Morsi] was faithful to the American administration.”

Sources close to Najla say the letters reveal a special relationship in which “Clinton pays tribute to his genius.”  She believes that  despite the fact that “her husband was faithful to the American administration”, they “betrayed him” and “sold him” (out) after “the coup.”

The son of Khairat al-Shatter, who was arrested in June of 2013,  is the other Muslim Brotherhood insider who has made similar threats to expose documents that would “undermine his [U.S. president Obama’s] political future and land him in prison.”

Saturday Movie Matinee: Rick Perry Indictment Is Political Payback

FOX 4 News – Dallas-Fort Worth: Gov. Rick Perry indicted:

Breitbart Texas: POLITICAL PAYBACK: DEMOCRAT-CONTROLLED TRAVIS COUNTY DA OFFICE INDICTS RICK PERRY:

A grand jury indicted Governor Rick Perry Friday for his attempts to remove Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg from office after she was arrested for driving while intoxicated last year in a case that made national headlines.

In April 2013, Lehmberg was arrested after a witness called 911, describing her as driving erratically, swerving back and forth into the bike lane, and into oncoming traffic. Officers at the scene reportedly found an open bottle of vodka in her car, and a blood sample obtained later that evening purportedly showed a blood alcohol level of 0.239—almost three times the legal limit—even that many hours later.

Not only did her arrest attracted headlines, but her belligerent behavior after she was brought to the police station—all captured on video tape—drew attention, as well. Lehmberg is seen blaming the police for destroying her political career, yelling and insulting them; demanding that they call Travis County Sheriff Greg Hamilton; sticking out her tongue; making faces; kicking at the door to her cell; and eventually getting restrained with leg irons, being strapped to a chair and wearing what is commonly referred to as a “spit mask,” which is usually used when a detainee is spitting or biting. To be fair, the video does not expressly show that happening, and Lehmberg’s defense attorney later claimed that the mask was used to “protect her identity.”

More facts.

“The initial contact between the officer and Mr. Brown was not related to the robbery,” Thomas Jackson, the police chief, said during a news conference Friday afternoon.

Rather, it stemmed from the fact that Brown and his friend were “walking down the street blocking traffic,” Jackson said.

This explains why Brown’s friend said the stop was over the fact that the cops rolled up on them for just walking in the street — apparently, that’s pretty much what happened. They were walking in the middle of the street, and the cops stopped beside them to say “Get the f*** on to the sidewalk.”

Or so Darion Johnson says.

That matches up with what the friend told Dana.

johnny dollar said, “the robbery is apparently not relevant to why he was stopped. However, it could be relevant to why the suspect reacted in the way he did.”
If the APB about the strong arm robbery came after the initial altercation, that is relevant.
