Quick Note: This was written by a registered Democrat who was raised to be a JFK Democrat & an FDR Democrat. In fact, he studied economics under one of JFK's ad hoc economic advisors. In addition, the person who wrote this discourse never owned a MAGA cap. In fact, he lives in a northern American metropolis, and NOT in the backwoods of the former Confederate Deep South.
And it came to pass: The jury consisting of residents of a federal district that prejudicially hates pro-life presidential candidate Donald Trump awarded an extremely pro-abortion woman $83 million in defamation damages. Yet, she had no forensic evidence of any kind, in an accusation she claimed to have happened 27 years ago. She also had ZERO on-the-scene witnesses in the same. Thus, we have too much of a coincidence at the outset. None the less ...
The plaintiff only asked the Southern District of New York to grant her approximately ten million dollars in compensatory & punitive damages, because Donald Trump called her mentally ill. My assessment of her ... of that particular female public figure who is subject to NY Times v Sullivan, 376 US 254, and who is therefore unable to sue any private citizen, on account of any private citizen's public opinion of her ... is much worse. This is because, if I thought that she were mentally ill, as opposed to malicious & manipulative, as well as sexually crass & void of decency, then I would have a moral duty to extend charity toward her. However, there is a MASSIVE difference between Malice and Mental Illness.
None the less, any other adjectives used to correctly describe E Jean Carroll are reserved for private conversation, and NOT for printed text. However, many more adjectives & nouns do apply.
For the record, the Spring of 2023 case is/was 1:22-cv-10016-LAK. The judgment is Document 178. The Notice of Appeal is Document 179. There was an error in doing the appeal paperwork. However, it was amended.
Of course, Trump Hater, Reid Hoffman, was said to have funded Carroll, in her legal adventures. Confusion then arose when Carroll said that she was only going to need to pay her law team if and only if she won her case. Such a thing is a Contingent Basis, aka a Contingency Fee Agreement. Concerning the contradiction here, it's times like this one when you toss your hands up in the air, and walk away from your files, thinking "What's the use? Who's telling the truth, anyway? I quit."
Even at that, in a civil trial the jury is not required to hold the same scrutiny as one would hold in a criminal court jury. In a civil trial, the standard is "the preponderance of the evidence where at least 51% of the evidence favors the plaintiff."
In a criminal trial, the benchmark of judgment is a point known as "proof beyond a reasonable doubt, to a moral certainty." If there is a reasonable doubt in any criminal trial, then the jury is instructed to declare the defendant not guilty. An American jury is not to declare such a person as "innocent"; only "not guilty."
Civil trials are not that stringent in rendering a jury verdict. None the less, the burden of proof (aka the ONUS of proof) is still on the plaintiff. So, where is Carroll's "clear & convincing evidence?"
It's NOT a matter of concluding that something could have possibly happened in a department store dressing room in 1994 or 1995 or 1996." Needed was evidence to show that something definitely did occur, with Donald Trump being in the area where the "something" definitely happened.
Thus, needed was  at least the proof that Trump and Carroll were certainly at the same place at the same time, in 1994 or 1995 or 1996 ...  that a physical assault of a sexual variety actually did occur at the department store in 1994 or 1995 or 1996 ... or at least upon Carroll in 1994 or 1995 or 1996.
Concerning this, sometimes a sexual assault victim takes a nearby item, to prove that she was in her aggressor's home or near his person etc. So, where is the physical evidence, to prove that Trump "raped" Carroll? Why did she take so long to write or speak about it, if it actually did happen? All that is known is that FOUR body language experts analyzed Trump during his deposition, and they concluded that Trump most certainly was telling the truth. The report even mentioned "micro-gestures" where Trump was said to have been "disgusted" with the subject matter.
Moreover, a huge tale sign was in Trump freely and repeatedly saying the word, "rape." A person who actually did commit rape, according to the expert analysts, refrains from using the word, "rape." A guy innocent of such a charge, rattles off the word, rape, without reserve. That video is already linked here, in a list of linked videos pertinent to the Carroll/Trump case.
Going into detail on either of the two Carroll trials is beyond the scope of this discourse, however, on account of time and space already consumed. None the less, simply because someone said something on the witness stand, it doesn't mean that that person was telling the truth.
Concerning mainstream media's writers, editors, and mouthpieces: Do "they" not know that reasonable Americans are "on to them?" And then comes the unreasonable Americans. They do NOT think for themselves. They're puppets ... sheep ... programmed robots.
And concerning Donald Trump, he has spent the past 7 1/2 years sabotaging himself. The details are beyond the scope of this discourse, due to time & space.
None the less, a quick example is that of Trump appointing Jeff Sessions as the AG. Firstly, this caused the Mueller Investigation, being that Jeff recused himself from the Russia investigation. And secondly, Session's absence from the Senate caused the Republican Party to lose the Senate. That was super fatal for a Donald Trump who most certainly did have successes during his presidency which benefitted America.
However, some of Mr. Trump's presidential track record . . . namely the rise of the US National Debt ... was the Same Old Same Ole. And of course, the national debt skyrocketed under Bush II, Obama, and Trump. Even at that, from the emergence of COVID onward, Trump's presidency must be regarded as a sabotaged presidency.
Mainstream Media in 2020: The Inciters of Riot after Riot after Riot after Riot
The mainstream commercial media damns and mocks Donald Trump, in everything about him. In this endless condemning of Trump, there is one blatant observation which shows that these people do not believe that they're telling the truth. It's the blatant fact that they do NOT let Donald Trump defend himself in detail, on the air, on their less-than-intellectual news & commentary shows.
If Trump is so evil, mentally deficient, & dangerous to Planet Earth, the mainstream media would have gone out of its way to bring Trump before television cameras, to show how "evil," how "mentally deficient," how "racist," and how "dangerous" he is. But, the mainstreamers of the media did NOT employ the decency of doing so. These media personnel are nothing more than hit-and-run cowards who mock Trump and then run and hide.
These mainstream networks need to be stripped of their FCC licensing. After all, all that they did in 2020 was incite riots, while withholding all exculpatory evidence from the viewing public. Inciting riot after riot is a criminal offense after criminal offense. There media personnel should be criminally indicted and prosecuted, pursuant to the Nuremberg Caselaw Authority.
An example of the deadly dishonesty of the mainstream media is presented in the video linked directly below. If you are a manipulative & avowed liar, you are too cowardly to watch it from beginning to end ... or you will obsess yourself with finding something within it, to condemn Donald Trump:
For the record, this discourse has been written by a registered Democrat who was raised to be an FDR & JFK Democrat. The writer of this discourse does NOT own or wear a MAGA hat. The same writer ... of this discourse ... was also taught college-level econ by one of JFK's "ad hoc" economic advisors. He even scored a 100% in a national accounting exam ... in the 1980s ... issued by none other than Harvard. None the less, he asserts that Harvard is entirely over-rated. Numerous colleges throughout America require discipline, the ability to read, and the ability of juxtapose numbers well. To graduate from those schools is impressive, also.
All in all, "Harvard Worship" has got to end. It's not the school that matters as much as the major which the student pursues that matters. There are worthless majors, per se. There are also majors which are formidable tasks, no matter which school you are attending.
Back to Donald Trump who is hated by the mainstream media, only because he's pro-life
From November 2016 to 2021, Trump kept sabotaging himself. Yet, he did have successes as president. More importantly, any adult over 35 years of age in America who is not afflicted with a brain injury would make a far better president than Biden. Biden is definitely a danger to America. Biden is a Pathological Liar. Biden is an insult to the reasonable person's intelligence. Biden is a Sick Joke. Biden had two brain surgeries in 1988, and he never did have much intelligence, anyway. There's more about Arrogant Joe Biden to convey, but that is beyond the scope of this discourse.
