As noted by the campus newspaper, The UDaily, penned by reporter Andrea Boyle Tippett, she notes back in 2012 (emphasis mine);
When the accumulator was one of the nation’s most powerful and senior senators, the collection also includes committee reports, drafts of groundbreaking legislation and various other historical treasures, enough to fill 1,875 boxes.
Way below the fold, nearly at the end of the article, reporter Tippett cites, keep in mind this is 2012, (emphasis mine);
The papers are expected to be available to the public two years after Biden’s last day in elected public office.
Please correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t his last day in elected public office January 20, 2017? Sure was. Therefore, Biden’s papers were suppose to be released to the American people on January 20, 2019, right?
Of course. But let’s fast forward to 2019. Dated April 24, 2019 (curiously, with no by-line) an official UD Library webpage notes quite the interesting political and partisan slight-of-hand taking place on the campus in Newark, Delaware (emphasis mine);
More than 1,850 boxes of archival records from the Vice President’s Senate career arrived at the Library on June 6, 2012. The collection, which also includes extensive electronic records and media, will remain closed pending completion of processing.
The records will be available no sooner than the later date of December 31, 2019, or two years after the donor retires from public life.
OK… I only have a bachelor’s degree, so those fluent in liberal gibberish and doublespeak may have to help me out.
In 2012, UD clearly stated that there were 1,875 boxes of Biden’s documents. But in 2019, 25 boxes of info magically disappeared? UD’s own 2019 website clearly noted that there were 1,850. Well, well, well.
In 2012, UD clearly stated that the papers would be released to the people “… two years after Biden’s last day in elected public office. Yet in 2019, they changed their story to read, “… two years after the donor retires from public life.” Hmmm.
Possibly explaining why 25 boxes of documentation has been subtracted from the initial inventory, as well as why Biden’s public status has been changed could be explained by a report authored by Greg Re of Fox News;
Joe’s Biden’s campaign dispatched operatives to the University of Delaware’s library in the past year to rifle through his secretive Senate records there, Business Insider reported Thursday — raising the possibility they accessed documents related to Tara Reade’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her when she worked for him in 1993.
In the spirit of giving credit where credit’s due, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski did a really good job of holding Biden’s feet to the fire. Watching him squirm and stutter was simply a thing of beauty.
I don’t know what’s in Biden’s University of Delaware papers but he really doesn’t want people seeing them.
Possibly the poster boy as to why America leads the world in prison population, Arturo Macarro Gutierrez has been arrested… again.
In and out of jail at least since 2014, Gutierrez has been picked-up again, but only after the home he was hiding in was stormed by the South Metro SWAT team of the St. Paul Police Department. Even after given the chance to peacefully surrender, which was followed by SWAT popping off teas gas into the structure.
Reportedly armed, Gutierrez was eventually found in the attic hiding under the home’s insulation, as reported by the Twin Cities Pioneer Press.
A 35-year-old St. Paul man is charged with first and second-degree criminal sexual conduct after authorities allege he assaulted a four-year-old and could have transferred a sexually transmitted disease in the process.
Arturo Macarro Gutierrez was charged Monday in Ramsey County.
The criminal complaint alleges the four-year-old complained of pain on Halloween, and told a relative that a man – identified as Gutierrez – had pulled down their pants and hurt them.
After being taken to Children’s Hospital in St. Paul, the child tested positive for gonorrhea.
A forensic sexual assault examination allegedly concluded Gutierrez tested positive for gonorrhea as well.
Not his first go ’round with American jurisprudence, Gutierrez is an old hand at not only the booking procedures, but also the revolving door that is our penal system;
Arrested on 5/24/2014, Gutierrez was arrested for domestic abuse (AKA: Wife beating)
Busted on 2/9/1018, he was nabbed for failure to appear (AKA: Telling the judge to go screw himself).
Picked-up again on 2/27/2018, the repeat offender again was charged with failure to appear (AKA: Telling the judge to screw himself for the second time)
Hitting the trifecta, the one-man crime spree was snagged on 6/15/2018 for False Info-Name of Another; Domestic Assault; Escape from Custody (AKA: What’s a guy gotta do to prove I love breaking the law?”)
In a sort of related story, seriously, this isn’t from The Onion, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported back in 2016;
SWAT uniforms and equipment will switch from an olive green to dark blue in an attempt to soften the unit’s image amid an ongoing national debate about the militarization of local police departments.
Officials hope the change will “address public perception of the militarized look,” Cmdr. Scott Gerlicher said in a memo to SWAT team members on Monday.
The change was among the recommendations made by President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, created after several unarmed black men were killed by white police officers. It suggested that police could “minimize confrontation” by wearing “soft look” uniforms and “having officers remove riot gear as soon as practical, and maintaining open postures.”
In a breaking turn on an already twisty road, the New York Post is reporting that two yet-to-be publicly identified men have notified yet-to-be publicly identified members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, that it was they that supposedly sexually assaulted Stanford professor Christine Blasey Ford well over three decades ago.
As noted by NY Post reporter Joe Tacopino, “Republicans on the committee released a timeline of events late Wednesday, which included details about their interactions with the two men who admitted to the attacks.”
The New York Observer published on July 28, 2017 that Weinstein’s “picturesque Amagansett home” was up for sale for a mere $13.5 million.
With buyers a bit an the apprehensive side, Weinstein dropped the asking price to a bit more moderate $12.4 million. Yet what’s even more nauseating from the Observer was their pretty desperate name dropping;
And along with the water views, you’re likely to see many a famous face in the celeb-loved locale. In fact, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton rented the home just next door to Weinstein and [his wife, Georgina] Chapman’s in 2014 and 2015.
Interesting how they described Weinstein’s multi-zillion dollar home in The Hamptons as “picturesque”.
As it turns out, the ever-creepy knowledge that know sexual predators Harvey and Bill had their own version of Summer Lovin’ among the dunes, rest assured that The Harv made sure he was readily available for some Hillary time.
Do you ever wonder to yourself who exactly were the starry-eyed wannabe starlets that the disgusting pig Harvey Weinstein forced himself on? I know I have.
But we may never know the identities of every woman and girl (and guy?) who this truly despicable excuse for a human being forced himself on.
Now this may be presumptuous of me, but I honestly believe that at least some of those who willingly traded their virtue and dignity for just to get their ticket punched to fame and fortune, well… suffice it to say that none of us should be surprised to see these human cockroaches crawl off their dungheap to sing the praises of Weinstein.
Interestingly enough, the Business Insider recently published at least a partial listing of Hollywood royalty who “thanked” Weinstein for being such a warm and wonderful human being;
Gwyneth Paltrow – Paltrow thanked Weinstein during her acceptance speech for her first Academy Award win in 1999. Paltrow won the award for best actress for her performance in “Shakespeare in Love.” “I would like to thank Harvey Weinstein, and everyone at Miramax films for their undying support of me,” Paltrow said.
Jennifer Lawrence – In her 2013 Golden Globe acceptance speech for best actress, Lawrence said, “Harvey, thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here today.” The award was for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Lawrence also won an Oscar for the same role that year.
Renée Zellweger – As Zellweger thanked her “friends at Miramax for making this film, especially Harvey,” during her Oscar speech in 2004. Zellweger won the award for best supporting actress for her performance in “Cold Mountain.”
Meryl Streep – “I want to thank God: Harvey Weinstein. The punisher. Old Testament, I guess,” Streep said while accepting the Golden Globe for her role in “The Iron Lady.”
Being the star quarterback at a leading university normally leads to the bestowing of the nom de sport l’école of Golden Boy. But if you’re the starting two-bit back for #1 Florida State University, discretion may be the better part of youthful exuberance. Case in point being Florida State’s Heisman Trophy winning Jameis Winston. As reported by ESPN.com and also Great Britain’s The Guardian, both on Sept. 20, 2014, FSU’s Golden Boy has again stepped way beyond the bounds of socially acceptable conduct.
With FSU being atop the Associated Press Top 25 NCAA Football rankings, the ‘Noles face a real challenge tonight against the visiting Clemson Tigers, who stand ranked at 22nd in the nation. However, the Seminoles will take the field without their star quarterback, Jameis Winston, due to his recent sexually explicit screaming session at the campus Student Union.
With Winston’s rant unacceptable for a blow-by-blow account the American media, England’s The Guardian was quite explicit and straightforward when it came to an exact quote. In essence, Winston decided to charge atop a table Iwo Jima-style at the Student Union and scream out loud words to the effect of having sexual congress with a woman directly into her reproductive organs. It still remains unclear if Winston had a particular woman in mind, or just an in general shout-out to the female gender overall.
The powers to be at FSU had initially suspended Winston for only the first half of the game, but with domestic violence in the National Football League splashed all over the American headlines, at almost the last minute Winston found himself banned for the entire game. Not exactly his first brush with controversy, the star player was investigated in 2013 for sexual assault, but with more than a few screaming of a cover-up, the state attorney for the Second Judicial Circuit, Willie Meggs, chose not to charge Winston late last year.
On the heels of his dropped sexual assault charges, the dual-sport athlete found himself suspended from the FSU Baseball team for a total of three three games and also ordered to perform 20 hours of community service after being caught stealing $32 worth of crab legs from a local grocery store last spring.
