Bill White Update
It appears that the 90-year-old judge in the Bill White case is going to pull through and be back to sending human beings to prison in a few weeks. Needless to say, at his level of society, he doesn't have to worry about Obamacare or incompetent socialized medicine; a federal judge gets the best medical care available to the 1%, which is probably how this man has made it to the age of 90, by enjoying advantages denied to the rest of us. No word yet on when he'll get around to sentencing Bill to many more years of prison for a crime actually committed by the prosecution's star witness.
Sometime in the next few weeks, the United States Attorney's office will probably dress this elderly man in his black robe, wheel him into court, get him to gabble out whatever sentence they have decided on for Bill and then bang his gavel, and then Bill's off to Florida for the Great Facebook Trial.
This is the case which will label Bill White a "career criminal" for allegedly making impolite posts on a Facebook page from somewhere in Florida, after the Roanoke trial "proved" he was in Mexico at the same time. (Bi-location is apparently no trick at all for Super-Nazi.)
The United States Attorney in Florida may go so far as to call Jar-Jar Binks to the stand and have him sing Broadway show tunes, and a once-again anonymized and terrorized jury, trembling in fear of Bill's secret army of "followers", will convict him a third time and thus allow the dictatorship to sentence him to life in prison, by their own admission without ever having committed one single overt act, criminal or otherwise. Just for saying things on the internet that the rich and the powerful don't like. "Oh beee-auuu-tee-full for spaaaa-cious skies, for amber waves of graaa-in...."
At least this will spare Bill the incredible, crushing pressure to plead guilty to something if he had been granted a mistrial. Yeah, I know, that's not much of a silver lining, but silver linings are few and hard to come by in this horror show.
