LIONEL PODCAST: Jail-O for Mr. Jello – Everything You Need to Know About “Pill” Cosby’s Predation

First, the accusations. Here are the actual charges as indicated on Cosby’s docket. And moreover, read from a portion of Cosby’s deposition that will serve as the basis for his ultimate conviction. It’s very simple here. Very evident. Here’s the 2015 criminal complaint.

1§ 3125  §§ A1   F2 AggIndAssaulW/Consent

18 § 3125  §§ A4   F2 Agg. Ind. Assault – Complainant is Unconscious or Unaware that Penetration is Occurring

1§ 312§§ A5    F2AggIndAssaul– PersoImpairComplainant

To be specific, read the status yourself. Any questions?

§ 3125.  Aggravated indecent assault.

(a)  Offenses defined.–Except as provided in sections 3121 (relating to rape), 3122.1 (relating to statutory sexual assault), 3123 (relating to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse) and 3124.1 (relating to sexual assault), a person who engages in penetration, however slight, of the genitals or anus of a complainant with a part of the person’s body for any purpose other than good faith medical, hygienic or law enforcement procedures commits aggravated indecent assault if:

(1)  the person does so without the complainant’s consent;

(2)  the person does so by forcible compulsion;

(3)  the person does so by threat of forcible compulsion that would prevent resistance by a person of reasonable resolution;

(4)  the complainant is unconscious or the person knows that the complainant is unaware that the penetration is occurring;

What?! In a matter of hours after Bill Cosby entered a Pennsylvania courtroom be arraigned on sexual assault charges, his attorneys called the criminal case against him “unjustified” and vowed to fight it.

“The charge by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office came as no surprise, filed 12 years after the alleged incident and coming on the heels of a hotly contested election for this county’s DA during which this case was made the focal point,” Cosby’s attorneys said in a statement released after his arraignment Wednesday. “Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law.”

Simply brilliant. And nothing the Daily News does is brilliant. Ever. With the exception of Denis Hamill.

Fad and convention. It’s who we are. Name your poison. Name your preferred reality. Listen. Just listen.

LIONEL PODCAST: Our Orchestrated and Systematic Disconnect From Reality

Facebook. One of the most fascinating additions to the human experience. Self-published self-aggrandizement and narcissism at the professional level. A demented worldview through an obscured window. Or something. But it seems to chronicle our demented perceptions. As does, in my ways and iterations, these podcasts and deliveries. Enjoy.

LIONEL PODCAST: Why We Fight Against the Obvious

In the name of Zeus, look it up! The information that is available before you now anent a host of subjects is incalculable. Yet, despite such, so many scratch their collective noggins and wonder why they know little or nothing about the obvious.

Lionel. One name. Like God. A cab driver once asked me what Lionel’s last name was. I responded, “One name. Like Elvis, Cher.” He responded, “Oh, yeah. Like God.” No disrespect intended.

Hell’s Kitchen is where it’s at. The link. The name itself. Such imagery. Enjoy this latest installment.

Merry Xmas from Lionel Nation

Putting the X in Xmas. The labarum , denoting Chi-Rho, a christogram, is the etymology of Xmas from the Greek letter Chi in Χριστός. So, take that all you Xmas naysayers. Now, as far as the apparent geoengineering, chemtrails and nanoparticulates . . . nothing to see here. Move on.

LIONEL PODCAST: Xmas Mythology, Crypto-Pagan Worship, Media Nescience and News Puerility

Gone are the dreams of a sentient people. From the way we bow before dead trees refusing to acknowledge the ceremony’s pagan antecedents to how we’ve handed the keys of our news collection agencies to children, this once proud yet jejune people (a mere 239 years) now grovels in a detached cluelessness unrivaled in modern time. And with that I wish you a Merry Christmas.

Reduced to awestruck. And as for the story that not only the media but society as a whole refuses to acknowledge – at least in this country – I give you the Watergate of the millennia (as spake Stanton Friedman).

LIONEL PODCAST: How the Republicans Are Going to Hose DT for the Nomination, America’s Puerile Understanding of ISIS and the Cognitive Disconnect the Media Have

How The Republican Establishment Can Keep Donald Trump From Getting The Nomination

It is going to be much more difficult for Donald Trump to win the Republican nomination than most people think. In order to win the nomination, a candidate must secure at least 1,237 of the 2,472 delegates that are up for grabs. But not all of them will be won during the state-by-state series of caucuses and primaries that will take place during the first half of 2016. Of the total of 2,472 Republican delegates, 437 of them are unpledged delegates – and 168 of those are members of the Republican National Committee. And unless you have been hiding under a rock somewhere, you already know that the Republican National Committee is not a fan of Donald Trump. In order to win the Republican nomination without any of the unpledged delegates, Trump would need to win 60.78 percent of the delegates that are up for grabs during the caucuses and primaries. And considering that his poll support is hovering around 30 percent right now, that is a very tall order.

In the past, it was easier for a front-runner to pile up delegates in “winner take all” states, but for this election cycle the Republicans have changed quite a few things. In 2016, all states that hold caucuses or primaries before March 15th must award their delegates proportionally. So when Trump wins any of those early states, he won’t receive all of the delegates. Instead, he will just get a portion of them based on the percentage of the vote that he received.

In 2016, more delegates will be allocated on a proportional basis by the Republicans than ever before, and with such a crowded field that makes it quite likely that no candidate will have secured enough delegates for the nomination by the time the Republican convention rolls around.

In the event of a “brokered convention”, it is almost inevitable that an establishment candidate would emerge as the nominee. That list would include names such as Bush, Rubio and Romney, and it would exclude names such as Trump, Cruz and Carson.

Unless the field thins significantly, it looks like it is going to be a real challenge for anyone to stockpile the required number of delegates before the convention at this point. Here is an analysis of the delegate math that candidates are facing that comes from Think Progress.

Trump’s biggest asset is winner-take-all states. So long as he captures a plurality of the vote in these states, he wins every delegate that is up for grabs in the state. Although the GOP’s rules require states that wish to hold a winner-take-all contest to schedule their primary or caucus no sooner than March 15, eleven states and territories will have such a contest. Additionally, a handful of states allocate some portion of their delegates to the winner of the state as a whole. In total, Trump could win about 500 delegates in states that award a bloc of delegates to the candidate who wins a plurality of the vote.

Even if Trump captures every single one of these delegates, however, he would still need to capture over 700 of the nearly 2,000 remaining delegates in order to emerge as the nominee, and here is where the math gets much more difficult for him. Even if he captures every single delegate awarded to candidates who win a plurality of the votes in a state, he would still need to win approximately 37 percent of the remaining delegates to capture the nomination — under the various and often complex rules that each state uses to allocate these delegates. Currently, the Real Clear Politics polling average shows Trump leading the GOP field with about 30 percent of the vote, so his current polls likely do not give him enough support to capture the nomination outright.

LIONEL PODCAST: The Last Thing Trump Wants Is To Be POTUS

Trump must wonder what he has to say to finally be booted if not institutionalized for wanting to ban Muslim travel to the US. Because you know he has absolutely no desire to be POTUS. None. But everything he says is met with resounding approbation and applause. America has become an asylum. And I’m your guide.

LIONEL PODCAST: The Brutal Truth About the San Bernardino Massacre the Politically Correct Media Pray You’ll Never Hear

For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.

Mencken said it best. But herein, I may just have said it better. I will discuss a variety of specious arguments being made from various groups and collect the points of view. As I’ve stated innumerably, the ability to critically think appears to be a lost art. But as lost artists, we will slog ahead nonetheless. And please note the actual reality and horror supra. That’s what needs to be told. The truth. Reality.

I call America’s approach and analysis of gun violence as the Chauncey Gardner Effect. Say the most base and simplistic truisms and vapid pronouncements and you will be met with wild applause.
 
To wit.
 
“Guns kill.”
“If there were no guns there would be no one killed by guns.”
“Terrorists shouldn’t have guns.”
 
Nothing’s too base or obviously silly. You’ll be lauded as a hero.
 
It’s the same as with death penalty arguments. “Of course it’s a deterrent, the executed will never kill again.” Simple. Unicellular. One-dimensional.
 
The problem is that while the country focuses on guns, it misses the issue of ISIS and how POTUS and NATO are avoiding the complicity of Erdoğan and Davutoğlu and ignoring the imperative of cutting the ISIS supply lines coming through the Jarablus Corridor, the 60 mile area stretching west from the Euphrates River towards the town of Kilis.
 
“Terrorism is bad.” “Murder is bad.”
 
Thank you, Mr. Gardner.
