LIONEL PODCAST: JoePa’s Death Sentence & Republicans Just Love Stupid

This podcast addresses two areas primarily: (a) the ouster of Joe Paterno after that horrible serial rapist and pederast, the xanthodontous Sandusky was finally popped; and (b) how despite MSDNC and other Obama acolyte professional left media outlets don’t understand that no one cares about a bumbling, logolalic GOP candidate. He’s quaint. Or something.

Paternogate

  • JoePa lawyers up. There’s a slew of litigation heading his and their way. It seems though that Paterno’s off the criminal liability hook unless he stupidly obstructed justice or perjured himself during any grand jury investigations and/or the like.
  • The destruction of the Penn State brand. Can you say Shinola? Remember the connotation to this day of Duke Lacrosse?
  • The severability of culpability. Most folks have a very serious time apportioning individual versus joint and several liability.
  • Legal versus moral responsibility. The two, sadly, are not in any wise identical.
  • The doddered Paterno. His advanced years and living in the Penn State bubble may have insulated him from the severity of this problem.
  • The prediction of Paterno’s untimely and said demise. I truly hope I’m wrong here.
  • The beneficial aspects of this case — this will be a precedent-setting lesson. No one will want to ever repeat this moment. Until the next fool commits the identical crime(s).
    And now for the next subject of discussion.

    The GOP’s Immunity From Stupid

  • This means nothing.
  • Republicans think stupid’s quaint.
  • It’s not a GOP quality to favor and/or hold as valuable intelligence, savoir-faire or a minimal command of facts or the ability to speak. All one need remember is to mention lowering taxes, speak dreamily of Reagan and mention jobs. You can deny evolution, Darwinian mechanics, natural selection — no problem. You can believe in intelligent design and a great big man on a cloud with a white beard — no sweat. Dubya was a cacoepist. Reagan had no clue what movie he was in. These are incidentals. Watch. “At least Ol’ Rick doesn’t need a prompter like Barry, huh?”
  • I truly think there’s something wrong with Ol’ Rick. Aphasia, insobriety or dipsomania or a combination thereof.
  • LIONEL PODCAST: Alas, Poor JoePa. Abandoned And Hung Out To Dry.

    Joe Paterno was fired late Wednesday night as the result of a growing child-sex scandal. The move is effective immediately meaning he will never coach for the school again. I predict two things: (1) watch the lawsuits pore in with lead counsel being those experienced in the Catholic Church abuse cases; and (2) I sadly predict that from this moment on you can count Joe Paterno’s remaining days on earth because the trauma and humiliation of this icon’s ouster will most certainly prove beyond devastating. I hope I’m wrong. But when you’re an icon like JoePa this loss will be beyond incalculable.

    Joe Paterno, one of most successful coaches in college football history, was fired Wednesday night by the Penn State Board of Trustees amid an ongoing child-abuse scandal involving one of his former assistant coaches.

    University president Graham Spanier was also fired.

    Paterno, who announced earlier Wednesday his intention to retire at the end of his 46th season with the Nittany Lions, has been the center of criticism for failing to contact authorities in 2002 after being told a graduate assistant saw former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky assaulting a boy in a school shower.

    Sandusky was arrested Saturday and has been accused of molesting eight boys over a 15-year period. He has denied the accusations.

    Defensive coordinator Tom Bradley will serve as interim coach.

    In a statement released before his firing on Wednesday, Paterno expressed remorse for the victims and regretted not doing more to stop the alleged incidents.

    “This is a tragedy,” Paterno said. “It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more.” [Source]

    The rape of boys by human swill Jerry Sandusky, one of Joe Paterno’s former longtime assistants, makes me puke. That’s an understatement. If you’ve the guts and the stomach, read the grand jury summary. He’s a predator and a psychopath of the first order. What people must know is that these sick people insinuate themselves into the lives of their victims. Sandusky is a pederast, a pedophile and a cold, calculating serial rapist. It’s time to get medieval. Might I suggest axle grease and a soldering iron? Cauterize his cloaca. That’ll send a message.

    But JoePa’s been abandoned. Hung out to dry. And he committed no crime. There’s no misprision charge that’s available to prosecutors. And while there may have been a moral obligation to do more, he’s 84. He told his boss. The Penn State legal team should have swept in instanter and learned from the lessons of the Catholic Church and their debacle. They should have immediately thrown this sick piece of human egesta under the bus. Sandusky was of no use to anyone and, moreover, he was a lightning rod. For the life of me, why Penn State waited for a second to frog march this rapist to the nearest precinct, I’ll never know.

    The New York Times notes the following.

    Upon learning about a suspected 2002 assault by Sandusky of a young boy in the football building’s showers, Paterno redirected the graduate assistant who reported the assault to the athletic director, rather than notifying the police. Paterno said the graduate assistant who reported the assault, Mike McQueary, said only that something disturbing had happened that was perhaps sexual in nature.

    As for Paterno’s criminal exposure, it seems he’s without the range of criminal exposure.

    Under Pennsylvania’s Child Protective Services Law, certain individuals, including teachers and school administrators, have a legal obligation to immediately report suspected child abuse to child protective services or law enforcement, or to a “person in charge” (supervisor), who must then report the alleged abuse to the authorities. The reporting must be honest. When in writing, the reporting must also include known information about the nature and extent of the suspected abuse, along with other material details.

    Within one day of learning from McQueary of the alleged abuse, Paterno notified [athletic director Tim] Curley, his boss. By doing so, Paterno satisfied an obligation to immediately report to a person in charge. [Source]

    It all reminds me of Brando in On the Waterfront: “[Y]ou shoulda looked out for me a little bit. You shoulda taken care of me just a little … .”

    They should have looked out for JoePa. They should have taken care of him a little.

    And just look at this sick waste of flesh. Look at him. He’s going to meet some very nasty people in the hoosegow who don’t cotton to this child rape thing. Provided he doesn’t off himself first. Or if someone doesn’t beat him to it.

    LIONEL PODCAST: Lies, Extortion, Blackmail, Champerty, Maintenance, Mountebanks & Media Whores. Business As Usual.

    Behold the face of victimization: Sharon Bialek. I know this might be a tad desultory, perhaps, but doesn’t she look like a cross between Gennifer Flowers and a post-surgery Roseanne Barr? And throw in Stifler’s mom from the “American Pie” for good measure. I’m just saying.

    This poor woman. Feel her pain. See the look of embarrassment as she withdraws from the world. The look of terror is permanently tattooed on her face. Oh, don’t let that smile fool you. This is the face of sexual victimization at the hands of that animal Herman Cain. In 1997. Fourteen years ago. Bill Clinton was President. She merely came forward now, lo these years later, to help Herman Cain. Oh, this’ll help, all right. Imagine if she wanted to hurt him.

    In today’s podcast I hit upon a number of subjects that intertwine, intersect and are interconnected.

    • Gloria Allred is the last person I’d ever call for anything vaguely resembling something remotely legal in nature. What insanity for Allred, the Al Sharpton of sexual harassment, to pick the hallowed halls of the schtick temple The Friars to announce Cain’s latest decades old victim. And dropping the “stimulus package” line?! What was she thinking. Truly.
    • The real story about Conrad Murray’s conviction: This was a civil case. The DA’s grandstanding. The crime of involuntary manslaughter is not designed to handle a sloppy, greedy doctor. No, that’s what reality shows are for. (That was a joke.)
    • The Joe Paterno disgrace and what this means. The cult of college football and the illusion of impenetrability play powerful roles in this mess. Paterno should have been better protected. Why in the name of Gawd would they protect for one minute former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. A lowly nobody compared to the football God JoePa. I would have thrown Sandusky over, under and on top of the bus. The reaction was insane. Haven’t they any memory of what happened to the Catholic Church?
    • The similarity in cultures that inspired the Paterno-Murray collective messes. The illusion of invincibility and impenetrability lay claim to its latest victims.

    LIONEL PODCAST: Spanking Is Barbaric. It’s All About Pissed Off Parents. It’s Anger Not Discipline.

    Every now and then an issue is presented that highlights critical analysis deficits and logical linear reasoning pattern failure. Spanking is that issue. It inspires an almost predictable series of observations and questions that are predictable to a tee. (Or “to a T” if you’re a James Wright fan.)

    • I was spanked and it didn’t affect me adversely.
    • I don’t believe in hitting or punching or beating or slapping but the more euphemistic spanking and the lovable swat.
    • Spare the rod . . . you know the rest.
    • This country was far better off when parents were allowed to spank their kids without fear of lawsuits, the police of child protective services investigations.
    • Corporal punishment, an ancillary issue, also permitted a better day and country. (Along with prayer in school, of course.)
    • You can’t discuss spanking unless you’re a parent. That would mean that you can’t discuss police brutality unless you’ve been a cop.

    The fact remains that inasmuch as most people have never really seen another spanking episode, this particular seems horrible. Because they’re all horrible. Parents spank and hit because they’re pissed off. That’s it. It’s not about discipline; it’s about being royally and, admittedly, rightfully pissed off. Parents never see their own behavior as abusive. They redirect their lack of adequate parenting skills and merge it somehow with effective behavior extinction and discipline. They can’t fathom how a child screaming in fear whilst mommy or daddy wales away is somehow spirit or character building.And they never could imagine the sexualized violence that, yes, spanking can be. The literature is replete with study after study suggesting such. Listen as I explain herein.

    Parents see themselves through the most fascinating prisms. Prisms and lenses that laser focus on defense mechanisms. Listen. At your own peril. As you might gather, I’m not a fan of spanking. I mean, think about it: you can’t discipline a recalcitrant death row inmate with spanking, a condemned man you will kill via lethal injection. If you can’t spank him, how in the name of Gawd could you justify spanking your own kid?

    LIONEL PODCAST: My Political Manifesto — A Tutorial For The Abecedarian

    I liked this graphic. It’s funny but speaks to one of my tenets: no labels. If you can label your ideology, it’s therefore too simplistic for my intellectual tastebuds. I have no philosophical or political worldview per se. I’m a political atheist and subscribe to no ideology or party or school though I cafeteria-sample many. I’m labelless. So stop trying to guess or pigeonhole.

    • The primary area(s) concerned and detailed herein are at the POTUS/international foreign policy level. I couldn’t care less about dithering over gay marriage, Reaganomics, DADT, flag fetishes, In God We Trust theocratic objectification, the secularization of Xmas and basically anything you’ll hear on either MSDNC or Fox. They certainly warrant attention, but that’s not within the purview of this podcast and my fundamentals. While there may be some areas of left-right differences at some strata, e.g. social programs and legislation, at the top tiers is without meaning.
    • The dangerous myth and illusion of the left-right paradigm. Conservative and liberal occlude issues and obfuscate truth. To quote Quigley, “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers.”
    • The cult of personality. Too often ideologies are defined by their loudest proponents and/or opponents. Further obfuscation. Further prevarication.
    • The pathology and deception of globalism. For something as dangerous as globalism, it enjoys such a benign labeling. Globalism: it connotes an international spirit of cooperation, joined forces and concerns. Nonsense. The globalism I speak of is a subjugation of my country into a member-state status and the ceding of jurisdiction to an international confederation and consortium that defies our Constitution.
    • POTUS and the dented shield (the essential metaphor).
    • The blocking offensive of MSM media.
    • The prototypical professional leftie and conservative: archetypical absolutes and their inapposite applications.
    • Monetary policy (credit and currency) is the only policy issue worth paying attention to. Nothing is as important as this one, singular issue. And nothing, sadly, less understood and grasped.
    • The future of conventional war. Adios to the dogfight. Hello “asymmetrical” warfare.
    • The principal leadership committee. The Mighty Four who run the show and the growing irrelevance of POTUS.
    • Be not a conspiracy theorist but a conspiracy analyst.
    • You must embrace alternative and foreign press. The Internet is your salvation.
    • Tolstoy was right: History would be a wonderful thing if only it were true.
    • American Presidents are not elected by Americans.
    • Stop asking how or why. Remember, it’s their story. Translation: You’re under no duty to explicate how something was carried off or executed. It’s their story. Let those who propose fantastic stories of terrorist legerdemain (for example), let them explain how that happened. They who claim have the burden of proof.
    • Enemies shmenemies. New allegiances and coalitions are forged by the hour.
    • The globalist world moves in 25-year increments.
    • Americans now nothing about history and care not to learn. They don’t vote unless it’s DWTS.
    • American political theories are infantalized, Manichean and wildly apodictic.
    • It’s all “a work.” (Borrowing from the wrestling argot.) Everything that purports to represent this country’s governmental latticework is but an illusion, a Potemkin village.
    • The Federal Reserve is as federal as federal Express. It’s part of the globalist bankster version of the Gambino crime family. The Fed has enjoyed unfettered, unlimited, unauthorized access since 1913 and the MSM wouldn’t dare question anything. Congressman Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, on June 20, 1932, noted, “The Federal Reserve is one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. There is not a man within the sound of my voice who does not know that this Nation is run by the international bankers.”

    To be continued. This I can assure you.
