Former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort, 69, was sentenced to 47 months in prison by Judge T.S. Ellis on tax and bank fraud charges, despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s recommendation of 19 to 24 years, which would have left him to die in prison. Manafort will be sentenced later in March in a separate case in Washington, DC. None of the charges against Manafort involved allegations of collusion with the Russian government, but are instead related to his lobbying work for the Ukrainian government. Mueller gave Tony Podesta, a Clinton insider, immunity in this case even though just like Manafort, he failed to file a FARA form in a timely manner.
On Thursday evening, Judge T.S. Ellis rejected Mueller’s
“excessive” recommendation that Paul Manafort serve 19.5 to 24.5 years
in prison after a Virginia jury convicted Manafort on 8 counts of bank
and tax fraud.
The Reagan-appointed judge sentenced Manafort to 47 months in prison.
In another blow to Mueller, Judge T.S. Ellis also wants Paul Manafort
to be given credit for the 9 months he has already served in jail.
If this happens, Manafort will only have to serve 38 months (just over 3 years) in jail.
“Judge wants Paul Manafort to be given credit for the nine months
he’s spent in jail, after a different judge revoked his bond last June.
If that happens, Manafort’s time in prison from now on would total a
little more than three years,” crime reporter Shimon Prokupecz tweeted
on Thursday evening.
The move is an attempt to do away with differences in test scores that theoretically result from disparities in wealth and education and, by so doing, preempt a possible ruling from the Supreme Court on race-based affirmative action.
The bill is intended to challenge the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, in which the high court enshrined the right to abortion as a constitutional right, though such a thing does not exist in the Constitution.
Based on data so far this year, experts predict that there will be 863,000 border apprehensions this Fiscal Year, though this only counts illegal aliens who are caught at the border and does not include those who successfully cross.
More than half of US states have such laws on the books. Federal courts have struck down similar anti-boycott laws in Kansas and Arizona. The ACLU says the three courts protected the right to boycott under the First Amendment.

Last week, John Bolton, warned Iran “that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.” This apparently was the signal for reporting explosion damage to four oil tankers off the coast of Fujairah.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flipped her position on the imminent destruction of the world in 12 years unless Americans accept her radical Green New Deal. She now says the timeline was a joke that Republicans took too literally because they are confused by dry humor and sarcasm.
Free healthcare is a welfare magnet that will draw even more people to migrate to the US, which is the globalist plan to overwhelm the US economy and bring Americans to their knees begging to be rescued at any cost, including their freedom.
here is concern that the investigation may extend past the statute of limitations and, thereby, prevent prosecutions, regardless of the findings. Judge Napolitano says the statute for most federal crimes is five years. Much of that has already passed.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about.

Zelenskiy’s victory was fueled by reaction against government corruption, the country’s lingering war, and a sluggish economy. Zelenskiy has been accused of being a puppet of Ihor Kolomoisky, a Ukrainian oligarch currently residing in self-imposed exile in Israel.
None of Manafort’s alleged crimes are related to Trump, however, the plan is to indict as many members of the Trump team as possible in hopes of getting some of them to implicate Trump, according to Judge Napolitano.
Federal Judge Amy Berman, an Obama appointee, jailed Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, on charges of obstructing justice by trying to contact two former business associates in order to influence them as potential witnesses. Tucker Carlson says that the Mueller team is trying to “sweat” Manafort into testifying against Trump, and, by throwing him in jail, they are also guilty of trying to influence Manafort, who is a witness.
