Well, Well, Well... (With Addendum)

One video of the altercation which resulted in a court filing:

From Politico, dated April 13, 2016:
Trump campaign manager will not be prosecuted, sources say

A Florida prosecutor has decided not to prosecute Donald Trump’s campaign manager for battery after a March run-in with former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, sources with knowledge of the situation told POLITICO.

The decision not to press charges against Corey Lewandowski is scheduled to be announced on Thursday afternoon [April 14, 2016] by Palm Beach County State Attorney David Aronberg.


“Not every minor interaction needs to go to court. Time for everyone to chill out,” [veteran Miami criminal defense lawyer David Oscar Markus] said. “Jeb Bush has a better claim for battery against Trump after those debates than this reporter does against Lewandowski.”...

I have to work a long day today (Thursday, April 14, 2016). Let's see if there is an official announcement this afternoon.

Additional reading: Heavy.com on Michelle Fields.



  1. She's an unseemly celebrity-seeking drama queen with a history of provocations where she played the aggrieved victim. She's trying to break into the upper tier of rightwing punditocracy, somewhere just above Malkin maybe.

    Look at that list of women who supported he. All nobody minor-leaguers, except for Charin and Christina Hoff-Summers.

    It's not about the story, it's about them. The money is gone from punditry, and even talk radio is becoming less lucrative, so hopefully we won't be pestered by such little ankle-biters in the future.

  2. I am not a judge. I am not a jury. Not my job.
    I never believed Trump inspired aggression against her.
    Something happened.
    It appears both parties have baggage that lends towards accusations about each of them.
    If Hillary doesn't go to jail, why should I expect anyone else to?

  3. Anita Hill (and the costly and unnecessary hearings) put women's rights forward ten years and male gallantry back hundreds of years. Men could no longer deliver an honest compliment, "You look nice today. The dress is very pretty." They could no longer meet in closed-door fashion for being falsely accused of sexual impropriety. Worse yet, when my husband was teaching high school math he did not touch a female students forehead when she asked if he thought she had a fever because she did not feel well. He merely told the young lady to head to the nurse' office.

    Michelle Fields? She has built her career on a damsel-in-distress model. Barbara Walters would have never behaved in such an unseemly manner. Minus the video, Ms. Fields could have destroyed a man's career. We tend to believe the woman when she lies about a man. Why is that? Should not both stories be told and weighed equally?

    1. What career?

      She's got tired stuck on the sinking ship called Breitfart and thought she saw a way off.

      To where, we don't know.
      Myself, I had never heard of her. Seems like rather low scale "Sippy" Cupp.

    2. Given her penchant for histrionics psycho-fetish conservatism, perhaps Glenn Beck could employ her.

    3. Duck,
      It's more than her wanting to leave a sinking ship (not that Breitbart is actually sinking).

      The woman has a long history of wanting media attention -- and saying anything to get that attention.

    4. Live to scorn, to jeer, and lie

      Quack the reeling midnight through

      For tomorrow you may die,

      But, Alas! you never do!


~ Dorothy Parker (adapted)

  4. Whew. For a moment there I thought lil Corey was going to have to go back to eating federal subsides for solar power.

  5. All the fine Republican pundits.

    "It's a family affair,
    It's a family affair."

    1. It's all one big DC crime family there buddy. I used to be proud to call myself a Republican.

    2. Bill, cheer up; there are actually people who love Sanders even when his response last night to "how do we encourage our economy and keep costs DOWN?" was "RAISE THE MIN. WAGE!" Ya, compared to that joke of a discussion last night "Hillary the liar" and "Sanders the overaged hippie," I'm still proud to call myself a Republican.

  6. A couple of months ago veteran Hollywood actor, Clint Howard (the younger brother of Ron Howard), decided to endorse Senator Ted Cruz as President.

    1. interesting because there aren't many more liberal actors than Ron Howard!

  7. I don't care if that pack of nobodies apologize. I do care that both Cruz and Kasich should apologize for saying Lewandowski should have been fired. I posted about it today. They were both totally out of line and I applaud Trump for standing behind his employee instead of throwing him to the PC mob.

    Sort of OT, but I never thought I would get to the point I could spell Lewandowski without thinking about it even though it's very phonetic. ;-)


    1. Adrienne,
      I don't expect either Cruz or Kasich to apologize, do you?

      I know what you mean about struggling with spelling Lewandowski's name!

    2. Why should they apologize? Neither of their campaign managers are too busy assualting people to secure delegates.

    3. Beamish,
      And buying and organizing both Super Pacs and Super Delegates.

      For the first time in my memory, more of the electorate are discovering how the nomination process takes place.

      It ain't playin' well in Peoria.

      Both parties.

    4. I hate that I can't smoke in church, but rules is rules. ::shrugs::

    5. Rules can change.

      Republican leaders consider rewriting convention rules:

      ...It amounts to not just a changing of the rules but of the rulebook itself, with far-reaching implications, potentially impacting whether party insiders will be able to draft a so-called “white knight” — someone currently not running who would play the role of savior at a deadlocked convention....

    6. The only people complaining about the nomination rules are the Trumpettes. Maybe the Sandernistas are upset that Hillary has committed superdelegates in states that haven't even had a primary but again, rules are rules, and membership has privileges. You want to be a Republican candidate, you gotta be a Republican candidate, with all the groundwork and organization that goes with it. Wasn't any different for Tea Party upstarts that had to work to win. Trump thinks rules are below his pay grade.

      He's wrong.

    7. For what it's worth:

      ..."If Trump arrives in Cleveland having won the most votes, the most contests, and the most delegates -- all of which is very likely -- depriving him of the nomination would be an unprecedented move in the modern political era...."

      Read the rest at the link.

      We'll see what the RNC's rules committee does or does not do in the next several weeks.

      If the rules are changed to shut out both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, there will be a gigantic outcry, IMO. More than the Trumpettes will be complaining then, IMO.

    8. from the WSJ article:

      “These are the rules,” we were told over and over again. If the “rules” can be used to block Coloradans from voting on whether they want better trade deals, or stronger borders, or an end to special-interest vote-buying in Congress—well, that’s just the system and we should embrace it.

      Let me ask America a question: How has the “system” been working out for you and your family?

    9. Indeed. I think that he captured the essence of America's "complaint".

    10. Joe,
      We are certainly living in roiling times.

      The Parties' managers (both parties) didn't see this coming?



    11. Trump is an Event

      When, for example, does the experience of the Sublime occurr in politics? Whem 'against their better judgement', people disregard the balance sheet of profits and losses and 'risk freedom'; at that moment, something that, literally, cannot be 'accounted for' in terms of 'circumstances' miraculously 'becomes possible'... The feeling of the Sublime is aroused by an Event that momentarily suspends the network of symbolic causality. - Slavoj Zizek, "The Ticklish Subject"

    12. Trump is not an event. He's a choke artist. A damsel in distress crying about his incompetence.

    13. Yet despite ALL his faults, he's better than anyone else simply because he's NOT them...

      Because, it's not about "Trump". It's about what America WANTS to be. She is NOT satisfied with who She's "become".

    14. Joe,
      despite ALL his faults, he's better than anyone else simply because he's NOT them...

      That's the crux of the matter.

      And people all across the political spectrum are FED UP with both political parties per se.

      Some of our Founders didn't think highly of the two-party system. For good reason -- as we have been seeing for the past several election cycles.

    15. Some people are SO FED UP, they're even willing to try Socialism. How F'd up is THAT?

    16. Repeal the popular election of Senators. National political parties would be irrelevant.

    17. Something essential to the Republic was indeed "lost" when the State's lost all of the prerogatives after the Civil War... but I suspect it may have as much to do with the presence and independence of State militias than merely State appointed federal representatives.

  8. Replies
    1. Good, but if the FBI and the Justice Department were as dutiful and honorable as they should be, the transcripts of EACH of Hillary's $250,000.00 speeches would have been forcibly wrenched from her slimy claws by now, and she would have been indicted and held without bail in a federal prison awaiting trial.

    2. FT,
      I can't imagine that HillaryBeast will ever release those transcripts or the the DOJ will force her to do so.

  9. The NY Post has endorsed Donald Trump (today):

    ...Trump is now an imperfect messenger carrying a vital message....

  10. Hillary Clinton recently demonstrated just how arrogant and corrupt she really is by mocking the ongoing FBI investigation into her criminal activities regarding her illegal personal email server. On top of that, she may be exposing just how corrupt the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice is as well.

    1. she may be exposing just how corrupt the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice is as well."

      Excellent point....something to think about, tho I believe the FBI Director is not.. don't know why, but I feel he's the real thing. Fingers crossed.

    2. James Comey was appointed by OBAMA, Z. That alone is enough to taint his credibility by my lights. I am mortally certain that if J. Edgar Hoover were still at the helm, BOTH the Clintons would have been indicted, convicted and serving long prison sentences before George W. Bush was elected.

  11. Evangeline Gelb Silberberg said

    That Michelle Fields woman is just another meshugene whore for attention.

  12. On any given day at work I step onto a crowded elevator and get slightly jostled when someone steps off. So many people to sue.... so little time!

    Michelle Fields was jostled. Slightly. Barely. And then again, she planted herself in the way of the outflow of pedestrian foot traffic. Not sure how she would survive crossing a Brooklyn street. It would probably give her PTSD.


    I've just added this video to the body of the blog post...

    Trump campaign chief: I called reporter

    1. Thersites,

      Any major coverage of this in the media?

    2. Gotcha journalism reveals every Conservative to be a hypocrite. Why would they ever report BOTH sides of stories like this, when doing so would reveal the obverse thread of hypocrisy underlying the liberal media grand narrative?

      btw - Did youhappen to enjoy the latest media revisionist history, "Confirmation" (On the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings)? I now await Spielberg's revisionist "All the Way" on the great Democratic hero... LBJ. It's an "election year", after all.
