North Carolina State Legislator Pleads Guilty to Making a False Statement to a Bank

Works for me, Mel.

Excellent SBw!

“1st degree murder is a bit of an overcharge”

Did they actually call it first degree? Lots of times, at this stage, it’s a “general” charge of murder.

“Self defense” is a state of mind thing. The guy and lawyer have to go in and make the formal “I feared for my life” argument. They may also have a bunch of witness statements from rioters saying he wasn’t provoked.

Mel "North Carolina State Legislator Pleads Guilty to Making a False Statement to a Bank"

Rhetorical question: So why is it a crime to lie to a bank? Is it a crime to lie to, say, a car dealer? Or a Landlord? Or to X,Y, or Z?

If a tenant lies to me and that damages me, then I can sue him in civil court if I can make the case. If somebody lies to me on a leasing application, I assume that is why I do Due Diligence before I accept the claims as fact.

If all of a sudden such lies become crimes and I can send them to jail, then why should I work so hard checking out the claims?

Maybe the banks should be more careful before risking the money of others?

Go click it. You'll see why.

Of course. Progs killing innocent people is ok. Innocent people shooting crazy ass progs assaulting them must be stopped at all costs.

What was I just sayin yesterday?

MissMarple2

Across the top of the aerial photo, from left to right, are four major cities: Houston, Lake Charles, New Orleans, and Mobile.

A dangerous storm surge in an area with refineries, off-shore oil drilling, chemical plants, and ports is going to cause serious disruption in manufacturing and delivering of goods. Hopefully most people got out. I am watching what's happening.

JSonline says "Court records show Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, of Antioch, Ill., has been charged there as a fugitive from justice. That document, reviewed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, said he faces a first-degree intentional homicide charge in Kenosha County."

Dave, that makes more sense than the story he was being tried in Ill.https://www.foxnews.com/us/lindsey-graham-to-james-comey-come-in-under-oath

matt - deplore me if you must

Good luck proving this case. being chased and assaulted by a mob sort of defines the self defense doctrine.

That the guy with the arm wound had a paramedic T shirt and a gun works at cross purposes, wouldn't you think? Most military medics are armed, but in what was supposed to be a "peaceful" protest would a life saver be armed? I doubt it.

Let's see the Kenosha warrants first before IL gets involved. There are more kangaroos in Illinois than in Australia.

I find that amazing since Markey hasn't lived in MA for 30 years. Not that I would vote for a Kennedy, but it is MA. Is the legacy gone. Is there a republican running?

MissMarple2

Jane,

I cannot believe they had the nerve to air that! The highlights the Democrats put on the internet were TERRIBLE and downbeat!

On the other hand, the Republicans kept it patriotic, upbeat, and inspirational. If you ask me, they are trying to get people to ignore all of the talk and NOT tune in. Too late for that!

Trying to keep up.

Frederick and I drove to our counties offices to apply for a road test appointment so he can get his full privilege driver's license (with exceptions, of course, he is barely 17). Told that appointments are being delayed. Not CoVid but because parking lot where the driver's test is taken is being paved.

Nice to know that there is another bureaucratic excuse not to perform their duties to taxpayers other than CoVid.

He won't need it in Wales anyway.

Dave (in MA)
    Is there a republican running?
There's a guy named Kevin O'Connor. I looked at his site earlier. https://www.kocforsenate.com/

He looks good on the issues. His bio says he was "a founding member of the BBA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee", though. It's all moot anyway in this stupid state.

I took my driver's test on the roads in the vicinity of where the Norwood MA RMV office was, not in a parking lot. Is that how it's done these days? The tests back in those days were conducted by a Registry cop carrying a sidearm. I wonder if they still do that.

Miss M, with a 20’ surge projected staying is suicide. A 10’ surge from Carla in 61 flooded every house but ours. A 20’ surge would have had my parents, older brother and I on the roof through a cat 4 hurricane. I was 2, mom was pregnant. There isn’t any high land until Arkansas. Forget the wind. That much water is bigger than a Three Gorges collapse in China (although East TX and central LA are less populated).

Lyle, I wasn’t a bad political prognosticator up until Clinton. I could not fathom his being elected not just once but twice. So I mostly gave up on prognostications as I didn’t trust my judgments about the electorate anymore.

Jane, prudent move. I hope they have a home to return to, but it doesn’t look good through the weekend. Antioch will burn tonight from the chatter I’ve seen. Not much in Antioch, except a bar that has live music and collects lots of toys for the Marine Corps League drive every Christmas.

A geographical note: Kenosha is halfway between Milwaukee and Chicago, tied by commuter rail to Chicago. Antioch is just south of the border next to the western end of Kenosha County.

Glad the arrest order came from Kenosha, that makes me breathe a bit easier.

Still don't trust Kwame a bit, though.

Unless they open a franchise near here and they have a beer section. 'Co-op' usually corresponds to woke owners.

I am still running the Kenosha rioting, shooting, killing, response and whatever aftermath there may be through my mind. America's mental dicease comes to Kenosha first instead of LA, or SF or Boston?

Okay. It's Wisconsin and we all know everyone there has a rifle to go deer hunting. But to be a harbinger of insurrection?

Do you think that Trump doesn't KNOW they will cheat if they can?

Do you think he didn't set everyone he trusted onto investigating it beginning January 20, 1017?

If we trust the man with national security, shouldn't he be smart enough to catch the dems at their amateurish shady dealings?

They are already getting caught in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and other states. They are getting scared and sloppy. I need to send you over to read some Carlos Osweda threads and you would develop a sterner demeanor about this. Ha!

Do read that PL piece if you already have not, AB. Clinton in ‘92 had Perot. He had good ole Dole in ‘96. As to your numbered points, add this: 3) rioting, looting, mayhem, destruction, arson, etc. without ONE dem denouncing them. Even the tepid Trumpers and regular folks can see this.

"we all know everyone there has a rifle to go deer hunting"

Pretty much. For a 17 yr old Kyle Rittenhouse displayed considerable composure under the circumstances.

henry

JiB, the opposition started in earnest with the SEIU all stars occupying the WI state Capitol building for a year after Act 10 and throughout the recalls. Lots of intimidation including random small businesses in Union Grove. The Cold War was a decade along when BLM came to Kenosha. Burning that downtown affects everyone in Racine and Kenosha counties. It threatens the highest growth part of the state (if not nation). People around here were wary of the DNC violence spreading out, now it has. And Evers is still being stingy with the NG. If there is a big enough law enforcement presence in Kenosha, where do the activists go? Antioch? Racine? Industry along 94? Or hit internal targets like Burlington or Union Grove? This crap needs to be shut down hard and fast.

henry

Pin, you likely stopped in Janesville as Mel pointed out. Unless it was after visiting Gus and I. That would be 94 through Kenosha.

re Illinois law, the are peculiar. Weapon must be unloaded in a case, locked in a separate part of the vehicle from ammo, a nice trick in an SUV. I hunt in Illinois on occasion.
