RETIRED LIEUTENANT GLENN KAMINSKY



Badge 1059
Born April 29, 1934
Appointed Oct. 1956
Retired Oct. 1981
Died Sept. 23, 2018


The daughter of retired Lt. Glenn Kaminsky (Lindesay Kaminsky) posted the following obituary on Facebook on Monday of this week.

Glenn F. Kaminsky
April 29, 1934 — September 23, 2018


Although he often said he intended to be the first man to live forever, Glenn Francis Kaminsky departed this life peacefully, family members by his side, at the age of 84.

Glenn was born in Passaic, NJ, the only child of Francis and Leona (Tubach). His first job, at age 9, was to do grocery shopping for all the ladies in the neighborhood who were employed in the war effort. He also shined shoes on the street corner, where he learned if you told the customer to pay you whatever he thought it was worth, you made more money than if you charged a flat fee.

His family moved to Anaheim, CA., where Glenn went to Anaheim High and was a BMOC, playing football and serving on Student Council. He attended San Jose State University, earning a BS degree in Police Science and an MS degree in Administration of Justice.

He married Janet Strachan in 1959 and had two children, Lindesay Anne (Bryan Abron) and Jon Francis (Shannon). They divorced in 1985. Glenn was proud of his grandchildren, Ian and Kaylee Kaminsky and Madison, Megan, and Matthew Abron.

He served his country as a Sergeant in the Army Intelligence Corps, working undercover in Korea to predict the revolution against South Korean president, Syngman Rhee.

Glenn joined the San Jose Police Department in 1956, retiring as a Lieutenant after 25 years. He was hired as a Patrol Captain for the Boulder Police Department in 1981 and retired in 1992, as the Deputy Chief of Investigations. Glenn developed the San Jose Model of the Field Training Officer Program, which became the national model for training new officers as they hit the streets, fresh out of the Police Academy. Glenn's training corporation, Kaminsky and Associates, provided law enforcement training to thousands of officers in all 50 states for five decades. His book, The Field Training Concept in Criminal Justice Agencies, is still the definitive textbook on the subject.

In 1989, Glenn married Melanie Rhamey and many years of great adventures and good times ensued, until he developed Alzheimer's disease in 2006. He managed to maintain his wonderful sense of humor throughout and was always appreciative of the care that Melanie provided to him for the last 12 years.

Glenn hated funerals and would never want to make anyone attend his. Please raise a glass of your favorite beverage and wish Glenn the best on this, his latest adventure. Donations in his memory may go to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, PO Box 97072, Washington DC, 20077.

It should be noted that while Glenn promoted the SJPD FTO Program around the country, the Program itself was created and developed in the summer of 1971 by then-Lt. Bob Allen, now a retired Deputy Chief. A description and brief history of the Program can be found on page 96 of the SJPD Commemorative Album that was published in 1983.

Comments about Glenn from retirees who were made aware of his passing earlier this week included the following. Some posts are directed to Lyndsey.

• Phil Norton: I lost track of Glenn when he left San Jose PD.  He was an outstanding Policeman and I knew he would continue to be a leader in Law Enforcement, which he was. May he Rest In Peace.

• Cheryl Babineau: I totally remember your dad. He was a great man. The fact that I made it through probation I owe to him. It’s a long story but he was the most sensitive, caring person I know of as women came on to the force.

• Bob Balesano: One of my FTO Sergeants’ first FTO Class, 1972. RIP Glenn Kaminsky.

• Jeff Dooley Great person. RIP Glenn.

• Ken Culwell: He gave the briefing on my first night at SJPD on May 1, 1964.

• Dave Painchaud: Played together on the SJPD fast pitch softball team. Great guy.

Ivano Franco Comelli: Sorry to hear about your dad's passing, Lindesay. Worked with him for many years at the PD. Not only was he a good cop, he was one of the funniest guys I knew. Had a wonderful "cutting edge" sense of humor.

• Don Hale: He was an impressive role model.

• Jaime Saldivar: Great man and always treated me well.

• Harry J. Mullins: One of the best law enforcement professionals I worked with. He was an honest, straight talking great cop and person. I am sure he already has a group of angels gathered and is facilitating a discussion.

• Craig Shuey: I worked for your father as both an Officer and as a Sergeant. He was the BEST! He defined leadership and shaped the lives of many young officers.

• Lynne Caro: You can be very proud of your father. He had the respect of everyone, both sworn or non-sworn. He was professional, funny and a great man! Condolences to you and your family.

• Bert Caro: Rest In Peace, Glenn. A great guy and a great cop. He was always very kind to me. A true leader.

• Kerry Smith: My partner and I were racing to a call involving an escaped bull from a slaughter house in the 13th St. area. Then Lt. Kaminsky passed us on the right while tucking a handkerchief as a napkin and sharpening his buck knife on the steering wheel, all while steering with his knees. We were laughing so hard, we almost crashed.

Suzi Smith: I’m so sorry about your dad. My dad passed away last year. Lew Smith. I’m sure our dads were friends. He was SJPD like your dad. Sending you and your family love.

• Michael Ross: My condolences and sympathies. Rest in Peace Glenn Kaminsky.

• David Dulong: My deepest condolences, Lindesay. Rest In Peace Glenn Kaminsky.

• Terry Warthan Alexander: Lindesay Kaminsky, your dad is with mine now. I don't know if they knew each other, but I bet they did and are both looking after their 'little' girls. Hugs to you.

• Lindesay Kaminsky: I’d like to thank you all for your kind words. I only wish my dad was here now so that I could share and read them to him.

THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF SAN JOSE AND THE SJPD


On his way out the door, Gov. Moonbeam signed a bill that nullifies the “Felony Murder Rule,” an action that could let many of those doing time for murder out early. And that is just one of the changes in the law that prosecutors and other law enforcement professionals will have to deal with on Jan. 1st.

New Criminal-Justice Reforms Derided by Law Enforcement

By Robert Salonga <rsalonga@bayareanewsgroup.com>
Mercury News — Oct. 2, 2018


Under new criminal-justice reform bills that aim to make punishment better fit the crime, fewer teens and criminal accomplices will spend their adult lives in prison.

But the landmark legislation — part of a movement to shrink California’s incarcerated population and boost rehabilitation — also appears to have widened the chasm between reform advocates and law enforcement who fear that the bills signed by Gov. Jerry Brown over the weekend in his final legislative session will hamstring their efforts to keep dangerous criminals off the street.

SB 1391 bars 14- and 15-year-old offenders from being charged in adult court, which would prevent them from going to adult prison. A related bill, SB 439, bars anyone under the age of 12 from being criminally prosecuted in the state except in murder and rape cases.

Homicide investigations and prosecutions also are likely to be handled differently with the passage of SB 1437, a bill authored by Berkeley-based state Sen. Nancy Skinner that restricts who can be charged under the state’s felony murder rule.    

Skinner’s bill modifies a peculiarity in the law that allowed prosecutors to charge suspects with murder on the premise that their actions led to a slaying, even if they did not participate in the actual killing.

“SB 1437 makes clear there is a distinction, reserving the harshest punishment to those who directly participate in the death,” Skinner said in a statement.

The chief public defenders in Santa Clara and Alameda counties, Molly O’Neal and Brendon Woods, agreed that the new law corrects a long-standing imbalance.

“The felony murder rule has historically unfairly treated less-culpable participants in homicide crimes the same as the major actors, so this change in the law will correct the disparate and unjust treatment under the law,” O’Neal said in a statement.

The bills become law Jan. 1.

In signing SB 1391, Brown explained his rationale for keeping more teens out of the adult court system.

“There is a fundamental principle at stake here,” Brown wrote in a statement. “Whether we want a society which at least attempts to reform the youngest offenders before consigning them to adult prisons where their likelihood of becoming a lifelong criminal is so much higher.”

Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen, who urged Brown to veto SB 1391 after it passed through the Legislature, said its passage along with related bills threaten community safety by lessening the consequences for serious crimes.

“Criminal laws are powerful tools that we must use with great responsibility to protect the community and promote justice for everyone,” Rosen said in a statement Monday. “Today, unfortunately, we have two fewer tools. However, that will not deter us from doing everything we can to keep Santa Clara County safe.”

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and the other state district attorneys are preparing for potentially hundreds of people serving murder sentences having their convictions re- evaluated.

“As the new legislation applies retroactively, all District Attorney offices will have to carefully review any and all cases that may be affected by the new law,” O’Malley said in a statement.

David Ball, an associate law professor at Santa Clara University who specializes in criminal procedure, anticipates that the change to the felony murder rule will decrease prosecutors’ ability to plea-bargain and leverage peripheral co-conspirators against each other with the threat of a murder charge. But he also believes it will streamline how murder is charged and, by extension, the public’s confidence in the system.

“You often hear, when you diminish criminal penalties, that they don’t take a crime seriously,” Ball said. “The other way to look at it is if you make the getaway car driver a felony murderer, you equalize the crimes, and the less relatively serious the more serious offenses become.”

Anxieties over retroactive application also extend to SB 1391, given that its forerunner, Proposition 57, was deemed by a court earlier this year to apply to all active cases, which includes convictions under appeal. That would affect the case of Jae Williams, who was 15 when he and Randy Thompson ritualistically killed schoolmate Michael Russell in South San Jose in 2009.

Prosecutors say Williams, who is 24 and being held in San Quentin State Prison, could be free in two years if his case is transferred back to juvenile court, where incarceration typically ends around age 25. Cathy Russell, Michael’s aunt, and her family were apoplectic at the prospect of Williams’ early release.

“I woke up this morning and (felt) like it’s a nightmare. … I’m just completely sickened,” Russell said, before directing her ire at Brown. “If anyone who gets out kills again, that blood is on his hands.”

In his statement about SB 1391, Brown said that there are existing mechanisms to keep dangerous offenders in custody even after they’ve timed out of juvenile incarceration, though prosecutors have voiced skepticism about that avenue.

Morgan Hill police Chief David Swing, who also is president of the California Police Chiefs Association, said the new law underestimates the threat posed by violent youth offenders.

“A one-size-fits-all approach does not work in this situation,” Swing said in a statement. “Unfortunately, we have seen heinous crimes committed by those under 16 that require greater accountability than the juvenile justice system is designed to provide.”

Frankie Guzman, director of the California Youth Justice Initiative based in Oakland, counts himself among juvenile offenders who reclaimed their life. After six years of incarceration for a robbery he committed as a teen, Guzman eventually graduated from UC Berkeley and the UCLA School of Law.

He stressed that the vast majority of youth offenders are trauma victims themselves from abusive or malnourished environments, and reiterated prevailing research showing teens’ developing brains make them less aware of consequences and more malleable to rehabilitation.

“I know there are victims out there who are hurting. But part of what they’re feeling is that they’ve only known one form of justice: meeting pain with pain,” Guzman said. “Their pain is not lost on us. We’re forcing the government’s hand on taking on the real issues like the lack of community health.” Staff writers Mark Gomez, Angela Ruggiero and Nate Gartrell contributed to this report.

This op/ed from the Sacramento Bee argues against the senate bill that Brown signed…

Kill like an adult, be tried like an adult. Why the decision to spare juveniles is wrong

By Marcos Breton <mbreton@sacbee.com>

Sacramento Bee — Oct. 2, 2018


The district attorneys in Sacramento and Yolo counties – at some point, maybe all state DAs – are going to fight Gov. Jerry Brown on his 11th-hour approval of a misguided bill that says no one under the age of 16 can be tried as an adult, no matter how horrific the crime.

Brown signed Senate Bill 1391 on Sunday night, despite the passionate lobbying of families destroyed by teenage perpetrators of some very high-profile cases.

Daniel Marsh appears in court for
review of his murder sentence


“There is a fundamental principle at stake here: whether we want a society which at least attempts to reform the youngest offenders before consigning them to adult prisons where their likelihood of becoming a lifelong criminal is so much higher,” Brown wrote in a signing message on Sunday that was not received well by everyone.

“This is not over,” said Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert. “We’re going to challenge it.”

Brown’s action immediately affects the high-profile killing of J.J. Clavo, a Grant High school football player who was gunned down at a busy intersection in north Sacramento on the afternoon of Nov. 13, 2015.

A hearing Friday was supposed to determine if the suspect in Clavo’s killing, Keymontae Lindsey, will be tried as an adult. He was 15 when he was arrested on suspicion of killing the 17-year-old Clavo.

Right now, whether Lindsey’s hearing will even take place on Friday is unclear. Even though SB 1391 doesn’t take effect until Jan. 1, it covers all juvenile cases that haven’t been settled by then and Lindsey’s case unlikely will be.

Sacramento prosecutors want to try Lindsey as an adult because of the nature of the Clavo killing. Authorities described a brazen gunman who walked up to Clavo’s car and opened fire, killing a high school senior who was college bound. The gunman exhibited little regard for the carload of young men riding with Clavo.

What form Schubert’s challenge of Brown would take is unclear, but she is not the only local DA with a major case that could be upended by Brown’s decision.

Jeff Reisig, the Yolo County DA, had already secured the conviction of Daniel Marsh, who was 15 in 2013 when he broke into the home of a an elderly couple, asleep in their bed. Marsh entered their room, stabbed the couple repeatedly and mutilated their bodies.

Daughter of Davis murder victims opposes
changing law on crimes by juveniles


Marsh was days away from his 16th birthday when he murdered 76-year-old Claudia Maupin and Oliver “Chip” Northup, 87, in their south Davis home. In 2014, a Yolo County jury found Marsh guilty of two counts of first-degree murder with enhancements – using a knife, lying in wait, killing two people.

Marsh received a maximum sentence of 52 years.

“We’re going to fight this every step of the way to try to distinguish this case by whatever legal and factual grounds we can,” Reisig said.

“This was one of the most heinous and horrific crimes any of us have ever seen,” he said. “It was gruesome. It was terrifying. This kid planned this out and executed it with some degree of sophistication. He didn’t leave behind any physical evidence. We found out because he talked to his girlfriend. I can’t even put into words how upsetting it would be if Daniel Marsh were released when he was 25.”

Marsh, now 21, was in court on Monday for a hearing to determine if he should be re-tried in juvenile court. Why? In 2016, California voters passed Proposition 57 which, among other things, changed how juveniles are prosecuted as adults. After Prop 57, DA’s could not send juveniles cases directly to an adult court. They had to go before a juvenile judge at a “transfer hearing” where they had to make a case for transferring a youth to adult court.

Lindsey’s transfer hearing is supposed to conclude Friday. Marsh started his on Monday.

But here is the question: Will Brown’s signing of SB 1391 hold up in court?

California voters approved Prop 57. In California, changes to ballot measures require a public vote. Clearly, Brown weighed this possibility when signing SB 1391. But just as clearly, his signature is going to be legally challenged. If that happens, it will place Attorney General Xavier Becerra squarely in the middle of a battle between DAs and liberal criminal justice reformers in the state legislature.

It is true, that too often young kids of color are prosecuted as adults.

“Unfortunately, I have seen too many cases over the last 20 years of young immature kids who were followers and ended up in prison for much too long,” said Kevin Adamson, the lawyer representing Lindsey.

“The vast majority of those kids were black or Latino, from poverty stricken homes,” he said. “We need to start educating and rehabilitating these kids, not throw them in prisons for massive amounts of time.”

There is no question that Adamson is right. But there are exceptions. Marsh is white and does not come from abject poverty. And though Lindsey is African American, so was the victim of his alleged act.

Clavo’s family, led by his mother Nicole, is African American. Nicole Clavo is an advocate for young black men. But what happened to her son happened. He really was killed in broad daylight. He really was in a car full of young African American men who also might have been killed.

Brown argued that state law allows for extended detention in juvenile facilities in cases of juveniles who still pose a threat when their incarcerations are nearing an end. The state Director of Juvenile Justice can request that the prosecuting attorney petition for more jail time. Theoretically, that petition could result in another trial of the defendant. It sounds good, except neither Schubert nor Reisig can recall this ever happening in their jurisdictions before.

Besides, a strong case can be made that Prop 57 is working. In fiscal year 2017-18, the Sacramento County DA filed 1,035 juvenile delinquent cases. But since October of last year, Schubert’s office has only petitioned for five transfer hearings to adult courts. These are rare cases when teens under 16 are prosecuted as adults.

“This is not just about public safety, this is about the crimes themselves,” Schubert said.

Said Reisig:”Why wouldn’t you want to let a juvenile court judge make the call whether a juvenile should be tried in adult court? Why not enact common sense modifications instead of an all-or-nothing rule?”

The DAs need to challenge Brown. Signing SB 1391 was a mistake. One that has deeply affected those victimized by young people like Marsh, who challenge the notion that all youthful defendants are alike.

“My thoughts have been completely on the victims’ family,” Reisig said. “I can’t imagine what they are going through. The pendulum is swinging toward criminal defendants and away from victims.”

WOULD YOU PAY $700 + $7/MO. FOR A DIGITAL LICENSE PLATE?

California License Plates Go Digital

From KTLA 5 News — Los Angeles



The license plate is going digital in an attempt to
modernize one of the most basic aspects of the car.


The license plate is going digital! California is one of the first states in the nation to allow new digital license plates from a company called Reviver Auto. Think of a Kindle-like display bolted to your car’s bumper. The digital plates are low energy and display a basic image of your license plate number, but there is more technology at work behind the scenes that can help you pay tolls, broadcast emergency messages and even retrieve a stolen car.

I talked to Josh Windisch, a tech enthusiast and early adopter of the Rplates. He participated in a beta program with the company that makes them so they installed the $700 plates on his car for free.

The plates look like a standard license plate, except they are thicker and do require a power connection, so installation on the car takes about an hour or two. Both a GPS and cellular connection are built in as well as a battery. The display normally just shows your typical plate number, along with virtual stickers for your registration. Registration is handled electronically, the virtual stickers are updated when you renew.

 

Click HERE to go to the KTLA web page so you can view the video at the top of the article.
(You may need to turn up the volume by adjusting the speaker icon in the lower right.)


There’s also a small message at the bottom of the plates. This message can be customized from a long list of choices that go way beyond the typical California license plate slogans and can say things like I’d rather be playing golf or Merry Christmas! Fully personalized sayings, as in something the end user would type in, are not allowed, you can probably understand why. You can also change the look of the display from black on white to white on black.

Because these plates are digital, there are some security concerns. For starters, they could theoretically be hacked. This would allow someone to track the plate’s location, or even change what’s displayed on the screen. The company that makes them, Reviver Auto, says that information from the plates including usage and telematic info is never shared with the DMV, law enforcement or other third parties. The company says the pate is locked down with to deter and detect any breaches or hacking. They also use the same 256-bit encryption banks use to protect our money and regularly conducts tests to make sure the plates are secure.

Still, these plates are basically a mini computer on your car… and that means, they can crash. Josh told me he once had to “reboot” his license plate.

As if the $700 price tag, plus installation, isn’t enough – the plates also carry a monthly fee of $7. Sure, you never have to worry about sticking registration decals on your plate and it can even display a message that your car is stolen, but the high price tag will certainly prohibit the mass adoption of these high tech plates, at least for now.

So far California is the first state to fully adopt the Rplates and Arizona is next. Texas, Florida and Washington State have all passed programs to pilot or test them. Like any technology, the price of the plates is sure to come down – remember how expensive flat screen TV’s were at the beginning? The tech benefits are there, but when it comes to privacy, that could be the toughest sell of all.

Still, at a time when cars themselves have a cellular connection and many of the same features built in, it’s not crazy to imagine a time when cars are outfitted with a similar digital screen on the front and back bumpers that can be programmed with the appropriate info.


RARE PERHAPS, BUT IT DOES HAPPEN…

Woman Who Lied About Being Raped By College Football Players Sentenced To Prison

By Holly Matkin — Blue Lives Matter — Oct. 1, 2018



Nikki Yovino was sentenced to prison for her crimes.


Bridgeport, CT – A New York woman who falsely accused two Sacred Heart University football players of raping her during a college party in 2016 has been sentenced to prison.

Nikki Yovino, 20, appeared to roll her eyes as one of her victims told the court about how her lies had caused severe negative repercussions on his life on Thursday, FOX NEWS reported.

“I went from being a college student to sitting at home being expelled with no way to clear my name,” Malik St. Hilaire explained, while Yovino sat smirking in the courtroom, according to the NEW YORK POST.

“I just hope she knows what she has done to me, my life will never be the same,” Hilaire continued. “I did nothing wrong, but everything has been altered because of this.”

Attorney Frank Riccio read a victim’s impact statement from the second victim, who did not want to be named.

“The last almost two years have been definitely my most difficult of my life,” the second victim wrote. “The roller coaster of emotions; fear, anger, sadness, embarrassment, depression, anxiety and the list goes on.”

“She accused me of what I believe to be a horrendous, horrific crime out of her own selfish concerns,” the statement read. “I lost my scholarship, my dream of continuing to play football and now I am in debt $30,000 and I’m simply trying to get ahead as best as I can.”

The alleged incident occurred on Oct. 15, 2016, after police responded to St. Vincent’s Medical Center to investigate a report of a sexual assault, the CONNECTICUT POST reported.

Yovino told police that she had attended a party the night before at a home in Bridgeport, and that two football players had pulled her into a basement bathroom.

“I don’t want to be in here, I don’t want to do anything,” Yovino claimed she told the men, according to police. “My friends are waiting for me outside, let me go outside.”

She alleged that the men then held her down, and took turns raping her.

Hilaire and the second man admitted they had sex with Yovino, but said she had consented.

Three months later, police questioned Yovino again at her home – but this time her story was drastically different.

“She admitted that she made up the allegation of sexual assault against [the football players] because it was the first thing that came to mind and she didn’t want to lose [another male student] as a friend and potential boyfriend,” the arrest warrant affidavit read, according to the Connecticut Post.

“She stated that she believed when [the other male student] heard the allegation it would make him angry and sympathetic to her,” the affidavit said.

But during a pre-trial hearing, Yovino recanted her admission, and again alleged that the men had forcibly raped her, the New York Post reported.

Neither of the men were ever arrested or charged with regards to Yovino’s false claims.

She later pleaded guilty to one count of interfering with police and two counts of second-degree falsely reporting an incident – all of which were misdemeanors, according to the Connecticut Post.

Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Tatiana Messina told the court that charging Yovino was “not an easy…decision,” FOX News reported.

“But with the evidence we had against Miss Yovino, we do believe this disposition is both fair and appropriate," Messina said.

“Many true victims of sexual assault are often disbelieved, but that is because of cases like this and the impact they have on public perceptions,” the prosecutor continued. “Miss Yovino’s actions are a disservice to those true victims, in addition to the two young men whose lives were greatly affected, and that was not something that could have been ignored.”

Superior Court Judge William Holden sentenced Yovino to three years in prison, but ordered that she serve the last two years of her sentence on probation, according to the Connecticut Post.

“I just hope you spend the time reflecting on what you did,” Holden told her during the hearing.

She will receive credit against her one-year sentence for the time she has served in jail since June, according to WABC.

Yovino’s mother, who was the only person present in the courtroom in support of her, was kicked out of the hearing after her cell phone rang, the Connecticut Post reported.

Her attorney, Ryan O’Neill, denied claims that Yovino smirked or rolled her eyes during the hearing, FOX News reported.

He told reporters that it was “a difficult day for Nikki and her family,” and claimed that her “willingness to accept [the] plea deal reflects her accountability for what happened.”

Both victims plan to file a civil suit against Yovino, FOX News reported.

BAD TASTE DOESN’T GET MUCH WORSE THAN THIS CARTOON…

Democrats Post Most Offensive Kavanaugh Cartoon of ALL TIME

By Steve Straub — Opinion
The Federalist Papers — Sept. 30, 2018


Democrats and their media supporters have left the reservation and gone beyond the pale by publishing what could be the most offensive political cartoon we’ve EVER seen.

This is just disgusting and everyone needs to see this:

 

 

From Illinois Times editorial cartoonist Chris Britt.

How can a man do this to another man’s child?

How can editors allow this to pass? What corrupt and wicked hearts Democrats have.

They are PIGS, straight up.

 

Turns Out, Blasey-Ford Has a LOT to Gain by Accusing Kavanaugh


One of the most common claims made by Democrats is that Christine Blasey-Ford has nothing to gain by accusing SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh but that’s not entirely true.

Turns out it could be worth a LOT of money for her, here’s why:

When Professor Anita Hill resigned from the faculty of the University of Oklahoma law school in 1995, she wasn’t teaching, she was instead working on the first of two books for which she had a deal worth more than $1 million with Doubleday Publishing Co.

It’s doubtful Hill would have been able to command such a price if she had not four years earlier claimed in 1991 that then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, her former boss at a federal agency, had made improper sexual advances toward her. …

Hill’s experience more than two decades ago is inevitably being recalled now after another professor, Christine Blasey Ford, accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually molesting her in the early 1980s during a high school party.

Again, millions of Americans believe the accuser and millions more see major problems with her account, which Kavanaugh has forcibly and repeatedly denied.

His nomination is now awaiting the results of what Senate Republicans and Democrats agreed Friday would be a one-week FBI investigation of Ford’s claims.

One of the most frequently heard arguments on Ford’s behalf is the claim that she “doesn’t stand to gain anything” by coming forward with her allegations about Kavanaugh.

But regardless of whether her allegations are true or false, the reality is Ford is all but certain to be offered a huge advance for a book detailing her experiences.

The $1 million advance Hill received in 1992 following the Thomas debacle would be worth $1.8 million today.

Given the even more sensational nature of Ford’s accusations, compared to Hill’s, however, it is entirely conceivable that the amount required to win an intensely competitive bidding war will be far in excess of that amount.

Something else that didn’t exist in 1991 is the GoFundMe phenomenon made possible by the Internet.

Ford has already benefited significantly, with supporters creating two such accounts that have raised an immense amount of money.

One of the accounts — Help Christine Blasey Ford — raised $528,475 from 11,950 separate donations in 11 days. The owners of the account closed it Friday, promising “a statement of gratitude from the family will be forthcoming in the next 48 hours. They are eternally grateful. Thank you again for your support.”

The second of the accounts — Cover Dr. Blasey’s Security Costs — raised $209,987 from 6,658 donors before it was also closed after an 11-day run. This account was organized by Georgetown Law Professor Heidi Feldman to cover security costs for the Ford family.

So even before potentially lucrative book deals accusing Kavanaugh has already been worth more than $700,000 to Blasey-Ford.

Who knew there could be a lot of money in derailing one of Trump’s SCOTUS nominees for the Democrats?

STORIES OF THE WEEK

How to Give Your Cat a Bath and Clean the Toilet:



From the Archives


1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl.

2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.

3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close the lid. (You may need to stand on the lid to keep it down.)

4. The cat will self agitate and make an ample amount of suds. Pay no attention to the noises that come from the toilet; the cat is actually enjoying the experience.

5. Flush the toilet three or four times as this will provide a 'power-wash' and 'rinse.'

6. Have someone open the front door of your home while ensuring that no one is standing between the bathroom and the door.

7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, then quickly lift the lid.

8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off.

9. Result: Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean.

Sharing keeps this couple together…



From the Archives


An elderly man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink.

He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his elderly wife.

He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip, then she set the cup down between them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering, "That poor old couple; all they can afford is one meal for the two of them."

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said they were just fine, that they were used to sharing everything.

People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She just sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy them another meal. This time it was the elderly woman who said, "No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything."

Finally, as the old man finished eating and was wiping his face neatly with a napkin, the young man again came over to their table and asked the little old lady who had yet to eat even a bite, "What is it you are waiting for?'"

She replied, "The teeth."

This morning I went to sign my dogs up for welfare.

The lady at the welfare office said, "Dogs are not eligible to draw welfare."

So I explained to her that my dogs are mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can't speak English and have no freakin' clue who their daddies are, yet they expect me to feed them and provide them with housing and medical care.

The lady looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify.

My dogs get their first checks on Friday.

Is this a great country or what?

The Fox who outfoxed the Shark…



From the Archives


From our Oldie-but-Goodie vault comes this story about the lawyer who boarded an airplane in New Orleans bound for New York with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blonde stewardess to take care of them for him.

When the flight attendant took the box and promised to put it in the crew's refrigerator, the lawyer told her in a very haughty manner that he was holding her personally responsible for the crabs staying frozen and proceeded to rant about what would happen if she allowed them to thaw out. She was annoyed by the lawyer's behavior, but didn't say anything.

Shortly before arriving in New York, the flight attendant made the pre-landing announcement to the passengers over the cabin intercom. Then, after a short pause, she said, "Would the lawyer who gave me the crabs in New Orleans please raise your hand?"

After the plane landed and all of the passengers had departed the aircraft, the frozen crabs were still in the crew's refrigerator, so the flight attendant took them home, invited some friends over and everyone enjoyed a delicious meal.

There are two lessons here: 1) Lawyers aren't as smart as they often think they are, and 2) Stereotyping blondes as being less than smart is often a mistake.


THE BEST OF THE LATE NITE JOKES

Sept. 26 — 28


Sept. 26: For his defense Brett Kavanaugh submitted into evidence his summer of 1982 calendar. So far the only thing that it proves about Kavanaugh is he's a weird freak who keeps calendars from 1982.

He mentions seeing movies like "Rocky III" and "Grease 2." I think this hurts his credibility because what idiot would leave hard evidence that they saw "Grease 2?" Who would record that? All my papers concerning "Grease 2" have been destroyed long ago.

SCRABBLE just added two new words to its dictionary. Two new words — "OK" and "Ew." OK and Ew have been added to SCRABBLE. Coincidentally, OK and Ew are the two words the Senate will use when voting on Kavanaugh.

Trump spoke at the U.N. yesterday. Analysts say President Trump treated his U.N. speech yesterday as if he was at one of his rallies. That's how he behaved at the U.N. And he behaved the same way he does at his rallies. Trump said his favorite part was getting the crowd to chant "Lock her up" in 17 different languages.

President Trump has a brand new technologically upgraded presidential limousine. It's supposed to be very fancy. And the latest with all the technology. For Trump's protection, the limo comes with bulletproof windows and no Twitter.

I'm a big fan of scientific advances in the field of medicine. Scientists announced they just developed a robotic caterpillar that can crawl inside you for medical procedures. And for an extra $50, for nonmedical procedures.

Sept. 27: Today was a very emotional day here in the U.S. Millions of Americans watched the much-anticipated testimonies of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the woman who accused him of sexual assault, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. People were crying in front of their televisions — you’d have thought Milo Ventimiglia got killed by a Crock-Pot.

The Republican senators were very careful with Dr. Ford. In fact, they were too scared to even question her. They hired a surrogate, a female prosecutor from Arizona. No kidding. They brought her in to do it for them. The way they found this prosecutor is very interesting. Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the judiciary committee, didn't like the optics of 11 Republican men questioning one woman so one of his aides suggested, "Why don't you hire a female lawyer to ask the questions?" And Grassley was like, "There are female lawyers?"

Melania Trump has the right idea. With everything that's going on, she's getting the hell out of town. Our first lady is headed overseas next week as part of her "Be as Far Away From My Husband as Possible" campaign.

She's going to Africa. Melania feels a strong connection to Africa because she's married to the Lyin' King.

Did you know that today is Google's 20th anniversary? It's true —Google it. Traditional gift for a 20th anniversary is china. Unfortunately, Google is banned in China, so we can't do that.


Sept. 26: There were new new allegations against the nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, aka "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," is facing another accusation from a woman who says she knew him when they were in high school. She alleges that he and his friends would target girls with alcohol and Quaalude in order to take advantage of them sexually.

And, just like that, we have a new spokesperson for Jell-O Pudding — we lose a Cosby.

Brett Kavanaugh seems to be backing off his claim on Fox News that he was a model student. In his prepared testimony today, he wrote, "In retrospect, I said and did things in high school that make me cringe now." In retrospect, you said things on Fox News three days ago that should make you cringe now.

To make his case, Kavanaugh released his social calendar from the summer of 1982. This is a calendar he kept when he was a kid. USA Today got an exclusive look at the calendar and it reveals a lot. June 16th he went to see "Grease 2." This is not a joke. In May he was grounded three Fridays in a row. The very next day after he was grounded he went to the prom. What kind of parenting is that?

I do have to say, though, these calendars do make a case for Judge Kavanaugh. I mean, look at this. The detail. There's Beach Week, first of all. Then library, didn't have sex, didn't have sex, didn't have sex, finals, didn't have sex, still a virgin, no sex, all good, good boy.

All three accusers want the FBI to investigate their claims. Republicans, Brett Kavanaugh, don't want the FBI to investigate. I wonder why that is. At this point Donald Trump has to be like, "I knew we should have gone with Judge Judy. Damn it, I told them!"

For now, anyway, Trump is standing by his man. He said Brett Kavanaugh is an "absolute gem." It's weird that Donald Trump has shown more affection for Brett Kavanaugh this week than he has for Eric and Don Jr. in really all of their entire lives.


Sept, 26: After U.N. diplomats laughed at his speech yesterday, President Trump said that it was supposed to be funny. Basically Trump is that guy who trips in front of everyone and then tries to turn it into a tiny jog.

After a toast at the U.N., Trump was spotted drinking Diet Coke out of a wine glass — but only after sniffing a sample and swirling it around first. [Imitating Trump] "Full bodied. Hints of aluminum. Vintage 2017."

Trump drank Diet Coke out of a wine glass, which is what the rest of America does when their dishwasher is broken.

Trump just got a new $1.5 million limo. It fires tear gas, has night vision, and can lay down an oil slick to make anyone chasing it spin out of control. Even crazier, Melania's bedroom door does the exact same thing.

The limo fires tear gas and lays down oil slicks for car chases. I'm pretty sure Trump was like, "Build me the Batmobile. Just do it."

Today, a third woman accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. And now, Trump wants to take Kavanaugh's defense into his own hands. Which is weird, 'cause men taking things into their own hands is the reason this all started in the first place.

I saw that Gucci debuted a pair of leather underwear for men. Leather underwear. The designers were like, "How can we make a humid day a thousand times worse?"

Sept. 27: Today was the big Senate hearing for President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and his accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Trump said he was clearing his schedule to watch on TV, then realized his schedule already said, "Watch TV all day."

Trump watched the hearing while flying on Air Force One. You could tell is wasn't going well, 'cause mid-way through, Trump tried stepping outside to get some air.

Judge Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by several women and many Republicans are still defending him. Americans were like, "Here's an idea — just pick a different judge. There's thousands of judges. Anyone! What is Judge Judy up to? Let's get Judge Judy in there! Judge Joe Brown! Simon Cowell! I don't care who it is!"

Yesterday, Robert Mueller was spotted at an Apple store. When he said his computer is really slow, the employee said, "Like 'normal' slow or 'your investigation' slow?"

Sept. 28: Next week, first lady Melania Trump is going to Africa on a humanitarian visit. When she gets there, people will be like, "How can WE help YOU?"

Africa will be Melania's first big solo trip as first lady. In response Donald was like, "I love Africa. It's my favorite song by Toto."

Canadians are now eligible to compete on "Survivor." Which will be great until they all politely vote themselves off.

Alaska Airlines might start giving out virtual reality headsets to first-class passengers. Meanwhile, if you're in coach, they just duct tape an in-flight magazine to your forehead.

IHOP is now making their own beer. It's perfect for people who think Waffle House beer is just a little too trashy.

Dunkin' Donuts is changing their name to just Dunkin'. This has some loyal customers nervous about what else is changing about the stores. So we thought we'd put people's minds at ease and let you know all the things that are not changing at Dunkin'. For instance, they'll keep making jelly sticks, even though no one has ordered one since 1997.

Next up, when you're hung over, there will always be a dad in front of you who lets his kid slowly pick out a dozen doughnuts.

And finally, the condiment caddy will continue to be stocked with zero sugar, zero Splenda, and 5,000 packets of Equal. New name. Same old Dunkin'.

You can now take at-home STD tests. Healthcare experts say it's perfect for anyone who likes to panic in the comfort of their own home.

A new study found that hand dryers in bathrooms spread more germs than paper towels. And the makers of hand dryers said, "But don't forget, we also don't dry your hands."


Sept. 26: After world leaders at the U.N. laughed at President Trump for claiming he has accomplished more than any president in history, Trump said last night that the line was meant to get some laughter. Oh, well, then it's kind of weird that you said this right after.

[Trump] "Didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK." Man, you're a very bad liar. I would love to play poker with you. [imitates Trump] "I'll raise you $100, and I'm bluffing."

A Silicon Valley start-up called Ambrosia is looking into opening a clinic in Manhattan where people over the age of 35 could be injected with the blood of younger people to help increase their vitality. Said one customer, [photo of Rudy Giuliani] "Can I get a to-go cup? Because I'm on the move a lot and I also love blood."

The Secret Service's new presidential limo cost $1.5 million and reportedly includes features such as the ability to electrify door handles to shock anyone trying to get inside. "What if you're trying to get out?" asked one woman [photo of Melania Trump].

Dunkin' Donuts has announced it will be shortening its name to "Dunkin'" in order to increase the emphasis on their non-donut items. Meanwhile, Taco Bell is going all out and just changing their name to "You're Stoned."

Sept. 27: President Trump today postponed his planned meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, so as not to conflict with the Senate hearing on the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. And when Trump cancels a meeting to watch TV, you know what that means — it's a weekday.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was seen at a Washington-area Apple store yesterday getting tech support for his laptop. Said the technician, "See, the problem is your computer is too full of evidence. You should do something with all the evidence on your computer."

A bear in Tennessee this week was caught on camera walking up to a truck, opening a door, and stealing a Sonic fast-food bag. So, yeah, Yogi's let himself go.

Los Angeles International Airport has updated its policy to allow travelers to pack marijuana when flying. And every person who was happy to hear that missed their flight.


Sept. 26: Even more trouble today for Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee. A third woman has now come forward accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during his time in high school. That's three accusers. Or, as Republicans call it, three strikes and you are voted in for a lifetime appointment.

These accusations are disgusting. This is not how a Supreme Court justice behaves. It's how the president of the United States behaves.

President Trump's new limo's tricked out with all kinds of advanced features, it can even reach speeds of up to 70 drive-through windows per hour. The car was designed by General Motors. They even threw in a second vehicle designed specifically for Eric Trump [photo of Little Tikes Cozy Coupe].

Sept. 27: The nation was gripped today by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's emotional testimony on Capitol Hill against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. As Dr. Ford was speaking, Brett Kavanaugh was reportedly preparing for his own testimony in Vice President Mike Pence's office. Out of habit, Kavanaugh brought a keg.

You know you're radioactive when even President Trump was like, "Uh, yeah, I'm busy. Maybe go hang around with Mike."

A bar in Atlanta even opened hours earlier than normal so people would have a place to watch the hearing. The bar was filled with Dr. Ford's supporters — as well as three drunks pretending that they knew there was a hearing today.

At one point, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley interrupted and talked over Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Sen. Feinstein said it was her turn to speak, but since it was coming from a woman, Grassley didn't believe her.

Another tell-all book is coming out about the Trump presidency. And according to an excerpt, on the night of the election, Mike Pence tried to kiss his wife after Trump's victory but she turned away and said, "You got what you wanted. Now leave me alone." In all fairness, I'm pretty sure 99 percent of Mike Pence's conversations end with the other person saying, "Now leave me alone."

She was upset that her husband had aligned himself with Donald Trump. But don't worry, I'm sure him spending the day with Brett Kavanaugh is bound to win her over.

Pence tried to explain why there wasn't a kiss with his wife. He said, "We're saving ourselves for our 25th wedding anniversary."

Police in British Columbia responded to an unusual emergency recently. A man called 911 reporting that he had been robbed. When asked what had been taken, he said that the thieves had stolen all of his marijuana and cocaine. He told the cops, "The joke's on them, they didn't find my crystal meth."

The thieves were arrested but police did not charge the man who lost his drugs. They also said the evidence will be locked up in storage until the annual Policeman's Ball.

Melania Trump has announced her first major solo trip as first lady. She will be going to Africa and visiting Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt. She said she specifically chose those countries because those are literally the last places on Earth her husband would look for her.

Apparently the first lady wanted to go on a safari during her trip because she had such a good time spotting wildlife during her last safari. When the president heard this he was like, "Don't forget to go to Wakanda. Excellent technology. Great king. Won't return my calls, but that's OK."


Sept. 28: Everybody is still talking about the big Kavanaugh-Blasey Ford hearing yesterday. One assumes. I don't know. I actually taped this monologue yesterday, which means I can't tell you what happened regarding Brett Kavanaugh — which, based on his drinking, seems to be something I have in common with Brett Kavanaugh.

There's one thing that unites us: None of us can figure out how our computers work, not even Robert Mueller, who was spotted this week at the Apple Genius Bar. [Imitating Mueller] "Let's just say, hypothetically, someone lost a very, very important file. It's called ivankaconfession.pdf. I know it's here somewhere. Also, can you remove Russian spyware from a person's skull?"

And you'll notice that Mueller's wife is next to him, so this might not be Russia-related at all. [Imitating Mueller's wife] "Oh, so you can pull off the biggest investigation in decades, but you can't get my iPhoto to stop going into slide-show mode?"

Foul language and graphic images warning) Speaking of nuts, there are two descriptions that would fit this clip: 1) Fun with guns, and 2) Russian Roulette in the Hood.

Back on April 17th, a Southwest 737 enroute to Dallas from New York sustained a catastrophic failure of its No. 1 (left side) engine. Shrapnel (possibly a fan blade) fractured a passenger window that killed a female passenger when she was partially sucked out. The pilot of the 737 was a former F/A-18 fighter pilot. Click HERE and listen to how calmly 'she' reported the incident and made an emergency landing in Philadelphia. (3:19)


Click HERE to see and hear the pilot, her first officer and the rest of the crew being interviewed on CBS on May 23rd. (5;21)

 

The story of the fatal mishap can be read HERE.


Not knowing whether my nephew was aware that the S/W pilot flew the F/A-18 for the Navy, I sent him the clip of the audio where she reported an emergency. My then-USMC Lt. Col. nephew commanded an F/A-18 squadron at Miramar in San Diego when he retired a couple of years ago. This was his reply to the audio clip::

Thanks Bill,

I was a little surprised to hear her say she hadn’t been in that position before...it was probably in the context of the Southwest 737s.

I feel like I spent 20 years dealing with one emergency or another. Particularly in the T-2 (during flight school) before it was retired, then the 30+-year-old F/A-18.

Hypoxia was my closest near-death experience, with many others related to failed engines, hydraulics, landing gear, etc. On one occasion I had to land aboard ship with one engine while the other would stall if I pulled it below 80%.

Anyway, thanks for the video! Hope to see you soon.

We’re starting this Hope for Paws rescue with a video that was posted a few days ago (Sept,29). Eldad was assisted in this rescue by Jackie and the lady (Teresa) who called to report the scared, stray Pit Bull that they eventually named Brandi. The only fly in the ointment was that a COYOTE was spotted nearby. (9:17)

This next rescue is about a little homeless Chihuahua. Neighbors who fed her said that 'Jenny' had been living on the streets for several months. Lisa joined Eldad on THIS rescue and managed to gain the little dog’s trust. (3:02)

This rescue dates back a few years when Eldad was assisted by a lady named Audrey. Before the pooch was rescued and taken to the vet and groomer, she had a face that only a mother could love. And it would take a very SPECIAL mother. Have a look and you will probably agree. (5:25)
