The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Dirty Judge Seeks Mistrial?

GREENSBORO, NC - MAY 24:  Former Democratic pr...
GREENSBORO, NC - MAY 24: Former Democratic presidential candidate and former U.S. Senator John Edwards (D-NC) (R) arrives at a federal courthouse with his parents Bobbie (2nd L) and Wallace Edwards (L) May 24, 2012 in Greensboro, North Carolina. The jury of the John Edwards trial has began the fifth day of deliberations. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)
The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Dirty Judge Seeks Mistrial?: From Denny:  Why would a judge abruptly stop jury deliberations as Judge Catherine Eagles did last week early Friday morning?  Have the U.S. Marshals guarding the jury been passing on information to the federal prosecutors and the judge about which way the jury is leaning for or against Edwards?

With the Political Fix Is In Crowd leaning on the judge and the prosecutors to get guilty verdicts and bury Edwards, are the prosecutors and the judge motivated to declare this trial a mistrial? It would appear they are strongly motivated at this point to save their careers since they are no longer confident they can deliver a conviction.

After three days of jury deliberations, and the particular requests from the jury, especially in regard to the Mellon exhibits and transcript testimony, it would appear the jury smells a rat.  The judge denied the Mellon transcript testimony and ordered the jury to rely upon their memories.  That's odd.  Since when does a judge deny a jury the trial testimony they have just heard?  How is she trying to influence the jury?

The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Bizarre Alternate Jury Antics

Four Trials by John Edwards

The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Bizarre Alternate Jury Antics: From Denny:  For the past couple of days the four alternate jurors have been acting out in the courtroom during the wait for the jury deliberation.  Talk about strange.

Yesterday, the four alternate jurors all wore yellow shirts in solidarity.  Solidarity for what?  Today they all wore red.  Just what are these people up to and who paid them to do it - and why now?

The past couple of days there has been more odd behavior.  Of the four jurors, three are men and one is a woman.  The woman has been seen giggling and tittering when entering the courtroom, flirtatious with Edwards constantly.

Talk about inappropriate.  Why has the judge not dismissed this woman?  Why is this alternate juror just now doing this after weeks of testimony?  What's going on here?

The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Kangaroo Court Seeks To Direct Jury Conviction


John Edwards on the TV show '.


The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Kangaroo Court Seeks To Direct Jury Conviction: From Denny:  Here's just a small snippet of how this Kangaroo Court breaks it down to cover their asses, both the judge's and the jury's should they enjoy convicting this man.

The judge is first baffling the jury with so much contradictory bullshit as to confuse and frustrate them into finding Edwards guilty out of sheer exasperation.  Judge Catherine Eagles basically informs the jury to find a way to hang Edwards and the court will give them cover.

Oh, and did I mention that the government never did specify where said crimes were committed and was not even sure when it was supposed to have happened?  How can you bring a case when you can't even nail down the specifics?  You want to send a man to jail for 30 years without any direct proof of said conspiracy?

The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Smart Brave Move Today by Defense

Former Senator John Edwards (D-NC) with his parents at his trial today

The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Smart Brave Move Today by Defense: From Denny:  In a bold and brave move today, Team Edwards shut down this case, resting their defense on the third day.  Why?  Could it be more obvious?  The prosecution never had a case.  Better yet, the jury is so turned off to the prosecution's "star" witness, the guy who came across as very scummy, Andrew Young, they will acquit Edwards quickly on all charges.

What shocked the jury - as well as the public - was to discover that Young stole the majority of the money given by the donor friends meant for the pregnant girl friend.  What surprised the jury is that Edwards was never involved in it.

The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Prosecution Fail, Dirty Judge, Truth Denied


John Edwards on the TV show '.


The Social Poets: John Edwards Trial: Prosecution Fail, Dirty Judge, Truth Denied: From Denny:  For three weeks now all the prosecution has put on trial to show the jury is the ambitious political atmosphere of aides jockeying for personal power, the complete control of a candidate - and personal revenge.  What an ugly world.

In the aftermath of the 2008 political campaign and ensuing sexual scandal, aides also sought financial profit, many writing books years later.  Clearly, they have an agenda to join in the Destroy John Edwards Game of Obama and Axelrod.  This trial will become known historically as an infamous political vendetta played out on the national stage.

The Edwards Marriage

While our federal government was at it, they also decided to dissect the very sad and dramatically dying - and finally dead - Edwards' marriage.  This trial has been all about a forensic marriage audit.

I doubt there is a marriage in America that could withstand this kind of intense vicious scrutiny. Most marriages have the occasional, if not often, emotional drama of accusations, convenient lies and sometimes outright betrayals.  Marriage is based upon friction, sometimes it works to create better people, and, sometimes, that same friction destroys them.

The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart: Obama Fail On Chinese Dissident

The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart: Obama Fail On Chinese Dissident: From Denny:  Jon Stewart watched with horror, like the rest of us, when President Obama dumped one desperate Chinese dissident, Chen Guangcheng, in favor of "diplomatic relations" with communist China.  So much for America standing up for human rights and the little guy.

Could this international incident be more telling about the "real" Obama instead of the marketed hyped one?  Obama made America look dickhead bad to the international community.  "Oh, thank you, for egg on face."

    The Soul Calendar: Astronomy: Tonite Trio Saturn, Moon and Star Spica Triple Threat




    The Soul Calendar: Astronomy: Tonite Trio Saturn, Moon and Star Spica Triple Threat: From Denny:  Does this month get any better?  We have a Super Moon on Saturday too.

    Tonight, 3 May 2012, is a special treat for skywatchers about an hour after the sun sets.  Look up in the sky and you will get the special eye candy treat to behold a rare beautiful sight: a triple conjunction of the planet Saturn, the bright star Spica and our moon.

    What is a conjunction?  It's simple.  It's just when two or more astonomical objects appear to be close together in the sky.  Of course, the reality is that they are definitely far apart but rather it is our perspective viewing them here on Earth that gives the suggestion they are so close together.

    Astrologers and astronomers like to argue over whether a conjunction is significant.  The astrologers believe a conjunction can cause serious effects.  Astronomers take a more laid back approach and tell us just to look up and enjoy the beautiful sight.

    The Soul Calendar: Astronomy: Sky Watch Biggest 2012 Super Moon Saturday


    Washington Moonrise


    The Soul Calendar: Astronomy: Sky Watch Biggest 2012 Super Moon Saturday: From Denny:  Look up in the night sky this weekend for the most awesome extra-large and extra-bright moon viewing for the entire year of 2012.  The spectacular Super Moon will be showing off its size and brightness on 5 May 2012 at 11:35PM EDT.  It will swing in closer at 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) from Earth.

    Why will the moon appear to be so large and bright?  Turns out this month's full moon also coincides with the time when the moon is closest in its approach to Earth, called the moon's perigee.

    Another factor for this Super Moon show is because the perigee in this month will be the closest to Earth of any for this year, varying only by three percent.  How is that so?  According to meteorologist Joe Rao, Space.com's skywatching columnist, "it happens because the moon's orbit is not perfectly circular."

    How much brighter will the Super Moon be this month?  Try an extra 16 percent brighter than average.  Now that makes for great skywatching, even with the naked peepers (eyes).

    Dennys Art Sanctuary: Music: Fun Cartoon Video, Beatles Hard Days Night




    Dennys Art Sanctuary: Music: Fun Cartoon Video, Beatles Hard Days Night: From Denny:  Need a fun break away from your routine?  This little video is just the answer for a head trip to get you laughing once again.  Courtesy of The Beatles of a Blast From The Past - 1964 to be exact. :)

    By the way some previously unreleased black and white photos from 1964 of The Beatles is up for auction this month.  The 87-year-old photographer did not realize he was sitting on a gold mine.

    No one has seen these photos of the band as they have been hidden away in the old guy's photo album for almost 50 years.  Old people; gotta love 'em!

    The photographer was Peter Allchorne, the studio props manager for the movie.  He seemed to ignore the ban on taking photos on the set and did it anyway.

    The Social Poets: Funny Osama Bin Laden Posts, 1 Year Anniversary Dead



    Jeff Stahler


    The Social Poets: Funny Osama Bin Laden Posts, 1 Year Anniversary Dead: From Denny:  Today President Obama took yet another victory lap while in Afghanistan, spiking the proverbial football and crowing about how he "got" America's Number One Terrorist Boogeyman a year ago, Osama bin Laden.  Never mind the rest of us find this political boasting in an election year as really bad form, including Arianna Huffington.

    Actually, it was the Navy Seals that killed the fool.  Why would a president that regularly has a hard time making any decisions go around the world crowing about how he made one decision to kill one terrorist in the comfort of the White House and well protected by thousands of bodyguards from thousands of miles away from the gore?  Come on; it has the look of election year desperation and is a bit pathetic.  It looks like the presidential version of an Elmo Happy Dance.

    But hey, it's standard election year politics for both parties.  It's their job to live in a fantasy world about what is a great idea for focusing the public on all their accomplishments while in office. The objective is to distract away from what is making the public angry about the candidate's performance so the voters will forget and vote for him any way.  Yeah, Life in America.  Does it get any better?
