The Swamp #19: #JeSuisCharlie, #PoliticalCorrectness, #FreeSpeech, @CrimsonMacaw Guest!

In this week’s podcast, I talk to comedian Jordan Scherer of the Bad Reception Podcast about the verious (but connected) topics of Je Suis Charlie, Political Correctness, Free Speech, and what each means to us.

The Swamp #18

Wax On, Wax Off, with @StateofDaniel-san.

The Swamp #18: #FeminismIsAwful, #MSM, #BDS, @StateofDaniel Guest!

First podcast without Laura, and it was a smashing success! Still looking for co-host however, so please email me for more information.

In this podcast I speak with StateofDaniel about how Feminism drives crazy stuff like how a Med Student tries to make yogurt with ingredients from her vagina. Then we talk about the MSM and how, while we still need them, they need to reform their ways. Then we get to the racist, in my opinion, BDS Movement. Please note that Daniel didn’t know about this subject until I told him about BDS. Still, it was great fun talking to him. But before you listen, check out my Patreon Page!

Turns Out #StrategicPatience …Is Nothing New

Last night someone retweeted this almost two-year-old tweet and it immediately made me regret not currently owning any alcohol:


I think I will go over there and forget everything for a while. I feel sick. I can’t stand it anymore. Stop, I want off. Stay away from me. I can’t think anymore. I want out…

#BlueLivesMatter: @BronxDefenders Brand Is Beyond Damaged

Radley Balko’s defense of the Bronx Defenders would be laughable if it didn’t encourage epicly bad behavior.

Oh, what happen you say? Well, this happened:

Two taxpayer-funded New York defense attorneys (Kumar Rao and Ryan Napoli) have sparked outrage after appearing in an online rap video that urges black people to kill police officers – and allowing it to be filmed in their offices.

The video, dubbed ‘Hands Up’, shows black men holding guns to the head of a white actor dressed as an NYPD cop, and features the lyric: ‘For Mike Brown and Sean Bell, a cop got to get killed‘.

It also depicts a grief-stricken mother walking into The Bronx Defenders’s offices on 161st Street, where she is comforted by an attorney. Another lawyer at the firm features later in the footage.

…In a report, the DOI said it had found the lawyers – Kumar Rao and Ryan Napoli – had knowingly ‘participated in the video and allowed the organization’s offices to be used’ in the footage.

This is despite the taxpayer-funded professionals ‘knowing that it advocated the killing of police officers

…Meanwhile, The Bronx Defenders’ executive director, Robin Steinberg, was found to have ‘failed to discipline the staff after learning of their conduct’ and lied to City officials during the inquiry.

DAAMMNNNN! There is no defense for this behavoir. None. “Actions” have been taken however:

Two Bronx Defenders attorneys have resigned and the organization’s executive director has been suspended after New York City officials demanded action upon learning that the two attorneys participated in a music video that advocated killing police officers.

…Steinberg’s suspension is effective Feb. 27. When she returns, Ward said she will be subject to a six-month period of “enhanced supervisory oversight and review.”

The board will retain Jason Lilien, a partner at Zuckerman Spaeder and a former bureau chief in the New York Attorney General’s Charities Bureau.

Ward said Lilien will “conduct a complete review and advise the board on policy and governance reforms” to address the Department of Investigation’s findings.

Ward said the organization would also appoint a general counsel or chief compliance officer, as well as implementing new training.

New York City maybe satisfied, but…

Patrolmen’s Benevolence Association President Pat Lynch said the lawyers’ resignations weren’t enough.

“While it’s good that they are gone from the organization, that still does not account for the violation of their oaths as officers of the court,” Lynch said in a statement. “In our view, they should have been fired immediately, disbarred from practicing law and the city’s funding of Bronx Defenders withdrawn.”

What makes Radley Balko’s defense of Bronx Defenders so horrible, is that he doesn’t think the “Hands Up” rap video endorses violence against police. I dare you to watch that video* and come to another conclusion. They put a gun to a white actor’s (who is playing a NYPD Officer) head. Here are just some of the lyrics:

I spit that shit the streets got to feel
For Mike Brown and Sean Bell, a cop got to get killed

My lil’ homie told me he ready to riot
Ferguson was on his mind, he ready to fire

Yeah, what those lyrics’ mean is a mystery to no one but Balko. The reason Balko doesn’t want Bronx Defenders punished, is because

…the Bronx Defenders are very, very good at what they do. They don’t just represent the indigent in court; they employ what they call a “holistic approach” to representation that includes social work, counseling and other services. The goal isn’t just to get charges dismissed or reduced, but to to actually help lift indigent clients out of the spiral of poverty and despair that can take hold once they become entangled in the criminal justice system.

…For the sake of argument, let’s stipulate that the video above really does call for violence against cops. And let’s stipulate that the attorneys who appeared in it knew as much ahead of time**. Terminating the city’s contract with the Bronx Defenders would placate angry law enforcement groups and their supporters. But who would it punish? The Bronx Defenders staff are by all accounts talented attorneys. They’ll find jobs elsewhere. The people who will be punished are their indigent clients…

Actually, no. Their indigent clients will not be put in more danger because the NYPD no longer trusts the Bronx Defenders. Not because they had a brief bout of bad judgement**, but because the Bronx Defenders credibility has been shot to hell***. Balko thinks this is about the crime, but it is also about the cover-up and the lying. A quick look at Bronx Defenders’ twitter account shows they support NYPD accountability. When they lie and cover-up, accountability seems to go out the window. All is forgiven and all is forgotten.

Bronx Defenders’ EO and Founder Robin Steinberg thought she could lie to city officials, and to the public, and (yes) to police officers, all on TAX-PAYER dime! The good people of New york City paid the Bronx Defenders to turn around and lie to them. When will liberals and progressives going to realized that the tax-payer has had enough of our money being used against us?!

Enough! An example must be made of these tax-payer funded NGOs! If not here, when and where?! As Balko well noted himself, those lawyers will find other jobs. Some might even start another group with the understanding that appearing in music videos that “advocated the killing of police officers” and lying about it afterwards, is not acceptable behavior.

Even beyond that, the Bronx Defenders will forever be associated with a video advocating the murder of police officers. Officer Rafael Ramos and Officer Wenjian Liu were assassinated, no murdered, around the time that video came out. Even if I was a public defender, I don’t think I would want to be associated with the Bronx Defenders, or Robin Steinberg, or Kumar Rao, or Ryan Napoli. Defunding Bronx Defenders would actually be a relief for all involved.

Yes the NYPD is angry. I don’t blame them. They are working the most dangerous job in the world and slander daily for doing their jobs right. Mayor Bill de Blasio, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, and other liberals feed that slander and yet they are mystified as to why cops turn their backs to them.

It is time to stop playing around with liberals and demand some accountability for their actions. Bronx Defenders should have thought about their indigent clients when they agreed to be filmed in a hateful music video and then started lying to everyone about it.

Well, see ya’ later!

The Swamp #17

Goodbye and good luck, Laura!

The Swamp #17: #SchoolChoice, #StudentLoanDebt, #CubanEmbargo, @RattlerGator Guest!

Today we say goodbye and good luck to the Texas Blonde, Laura, as this is her last podcast with The Swamp as a co-host. Laura is always welcome back on as a guest in the near future! But before I let her go, we talked a little about School Choice since there is a rally going on in Washington DC right now and that of government forgiving Student Loan Debt (which we both agreed is a very bad idea).

Next, me and J.B. White (The “RattlerGator“) talk about his trip to Cuba and the Cuban Embargo. We both have nothing against the Cuban people per say, just the the murderous Castro Brothers! But before you listen, check out my Patreon Page!

The Swamp #16

#20WeekAbortionBan Undone

The Swamp #16: #SOTU, #SOTU2015, #20WeekAbortionBan, @moelane Guest!

Today, the lovely Laura and Moe Lane help me beat the SOTU2015 five ways until the speech turned to glue (no horses were harmed in the making of this podcast).

I am Pro-Life and that means I am against murder in all forms (being supportive of the Death Penalty weighs on my heart, but being Pro-Life just reinforces my stance on the Death Penalty). Even when I was an Atheist (long ago it now seems), I could not justify Abortion in any way shape of form. Today I rant and rave on behalf of the people who are taking part in the March4Life everywhere right now, because they are in the cold fighting for life and people like Renee Ellmers fucked them over! I am so angry I can’t think, talk, or see straight!

The Swamp #15

The time is now for “Free” Community College! Or not…

The Swamp #15: #FreeCommunityCollege, #TortReform, #DeathPenalty, @ClarkHat Guest!

I have to say, this has got to be the best podcasts to date. I think about all the latest podcasts, but this one will be hard to top for sure. First, me and the Texas Blonde Laura, talk about “Free” Community College. I go in it on how these local governments are being shafted with these top down mandates. Then we talk about Tort Reform, where Laura kicks my butt to remind me we need to do this at the state level.

Then we bring in @ClarkHat, to talk about the Death Penalty in America. I toss the questions after two failed attempts and we all have a grown-up discussion on the pros and cons. He did a really good job putting on his case. I am grateful for everyone on this debate. But before you listen, check out my Patreon Page!

#TortReform: The Time Has Come!

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes – and ships – and sealing-wax -
Of cabbages – and kings -
And why the sea is boiling hot -
And whether pigs have wings.”

I was reading this article about how repealing ObamaCare is not enough:

If Republicans achieved repeal without agreeing on a way to reform healthcare along free market lines, it’s inevitable that Democrats would eventually lead another overhaul of the system that would grant even more power to the federal government than the Affordable Care Act does. This would gradually morph the system into a full single-payer program.

And I fully agree with him. One of the things we can do to keep Health Care costs down along with free market ideals, is real meaningful tort reform. Right now doctors preform every test in the book before giving treatment in order not to be sued. This not only raises costs, but also prevents timely treatment. I have seen, first hand, EMTs identify what was wrong with my grandmother just by sight, but still tested her and asked what medications she takes before treating her (Long-story short: Her blood-sugar was low and in the middle of Night-Terrors, and all she needed was some sugar).

I used to believe in capping punitive damages, but I have since changed my minds on the issue. One thing I think we should do is pass Loser Pays and capping Lawyer’s Out-Of-Control Fees.

Loser Pays

Fraudulent lawsuits are filed all the time and some are caught. Remember Glenn Taylor, who push over a boulder in Utah’s Goblin Valley State Park? Well, before that happen he filed a injury lawsuit claiming “serious, permanent and debilitating injuries” in a car accident. But the damage, they say, has been done. I bet you now the defendent, Alan MacDonald, has to pay his lawyer fees and court costs. It is high time that changes:

America differs from all other Western democracies (indeed, from virtually all nations of any sort) in its refusal to recognize the principle that the losing side in litigation should contribute toward “making whole” its prevailing opponent.

Agreed. Some states do have Loser Pays reform, but you can shop around to sue whoever in those states that don’t have them.

I just don’t see how the winner of the lawsuit has to pay the court costs.

Lawyer’s Out-Of-Control Fees

Lawyers are also competely out-of-control:

An Alabama man who sued over being hit and kicked by police after leading them on a high-speed chase will get $1,000 in a settlement with the city of Birmingham, while his attorneys will take in $459,000, officials said Wednesday. …

Under the terms of the settlement of Warren’s 2009 federal suit, in which he accused five Birmingham police officers of excessive force, his attorneys will receive $100,000 for expenses and $359,000 in fees…

That is outrageous! Lawyers don’t care about you or your safty, but only getting their pound of flesh from their client’s misery. Someone who does sue sucessfully and on the merits, should be able to get the vast majority of the judgement. We should require lawyers to have an itemized list of expenses and limit their fees to 25% of total judgement.

Hey, if Democrats are truely in it for the little guy, then they’ll be for that too!

Conclusion

Kate Sullivan: Well, for someone who has nothing nice to say about lawyers, you certainly have plenty of them around.

Lawrence Garfield: They’re like nuclear warheads. They have theirs, so I have mine. Once you use them, they fuck up everything.

Look, I have nothing against lawsuits and lawyers. If I legitimately break my arm in a car accident and someone else is at fault, I would that person. Everyone has a good lawyer joke, until you need one.

However if I spill my coffee on myself, it is my fault and not McDonalds. If I fake an injury just to get money from the insurance company, then that makes me no better than a thief and liar.

Both these reforms are in good taste, because it punishes the lawsuit loser and rewards the winner. It is time for honest tort reform, let’s get this done!

Well, see ya’ later!
