MICHAEL COHEN SET TO HEAD TO FCI OTISVILLE WHEN HE REPORTS TO PRISON ON MAY 6

 

 

 

Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen’s days as a free-man are numbered. The former “fixer” for the current president, is scheduled to begin serving his 3-year prison sentence on May 6th. Cohen will be headed to FCI Otisville.

 

 

 

CNN (@cnn) reported, Cohen requested to be sent to the prison when he was sentenced by District Judge William Pauley. Cohen allegedly requested Otisville because of its proximity to New York City. Otisville is located in Upstate New York, and is likely one of the closest low-security federal prisons systems to the city. That’s a good thing if your family lives in New York City. It’s better than being sent clear across the country to Texas or South Carolina or something. So, that may be one legitimate reason Cohen wanted to go to Otisville. The other reason is because Otisville has become known among federal prisoners as one of the best places to do your time at. When someone in the system says “best” they usually mean least violent. The unknown is always fearful. Cohen has never been to prison in his life. But the truth of the matter is, practically every low-custody or satellite camp in the federal prison system is the “best.” Low custody prisons are not really for violent inmates. You have a lot of people who have been convicted for white collar crimes, drug crimes, non-violent gun crimes and plenty others. If your criminal record or current crime has some violence involved, you are more likely to end up in a medium custody facility or penitentiary. Don’t get me wrong, THAT IS NOT A RULE THAT IS SET IN STONE. You do have some violent offenders who are sent to low custody prisons. But most are likely serving a sentence of less than 20-years, so it’s not like they’ll be in there looking to kill anyone. They have a release date. The people with no release date are the people you need to be concerned about. You’ll likely find them in medium custody facilities or the penitentiary. Those jokers ain’t got nothing to lose. Now I’m not saying that Cohen, or any other inmate can’t get punched in the face or beat up at a low-custody facility…..but it’s prison, not a freakin’ amusement park. What did you expect? I’m just saying that the likelihood of someone trying to kill Michael Cohen is very low, even given the fact he will be labeled a “rat” the second he steps foot through the prisons doors. Low custody time would’ve probably been smooth time no matter where Cohen was sent to serve his prison sentence. But like I said earlier, the fear of the unknown is always a scary thing. But I’ve personally heard from many people that, if you had to serve some federal time, Otisville is not a bad spot to land at.

LEADER OF NEW MEXICO BASED MILITIA GROUP ARRESTED ON WEAPONS CHARGES

WESLASCO, TX

 

 

 

Larry Mitchell Hopkins was arrested last week and charged with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition. 69-year old Hopkins is the leader of a militia group operating in New Mexico. Hopkins’ group, The United Constitutional Patriots operate out of Sunland Park, New Mexico, bordering El Paso, Texas, and Chihuahua State, Mexico.

NBC 2 WGRZ (WGRZ) out of Buffalo NY, reported, Mitchell’s group claims to have set up shop along the border fence about two months ago to report illegal crossings of migrants and possible smugglers to the U.S. Border Patrol. The American Civil Liberties Union urged the Governor of New Mexico to open an investigation into the group after watching The United Constitutional Patriots Facebook stream. The stream showed the group, armed with guns, detaining migrants and ordering them to sit on the ground at gunpoint. The American Civil Liberties Union found the group’s activities to be dangerous. New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas agreed.

 

 

 

“The rule of law should be in the hands of trained law enforcement officials, not armed vigilantes.” Balderas said.

A closer look into the leader’s background revealed that Hopkins was a convicted felon prohibited from carrying a firearm. A visit to his home in 2017 uncovered 9 firearms and ammunition. Hopkins had three prior convictions dating back to 1996. One for impersonating a police officer in Oregon. The F.B.I began investigating Hopkins himself, after getting reports that Hopkins was at the head of a group that were training to assassinate Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, and George Soros. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Hopkins is a well known right-wing figure. Using his pseudonym, Johnny Horton Jr., Hopkins appeared in videos claiming to have advised President Trump on border security. Hopkins faces a maximum 10-years in prison if convicted on the charges.

MAN WHO SENT WHITE POWDER AND THREATENING LETTERS TO TRUMP JR. AND OTHERS SENTENCED

MASSACHUSETTS

 

 

 

A man who sent threatening letters to multiple people, including Donald Trump Jr., was sentenced to 5-years probation in a federal court on Friday. Daniel Frisiello pleaded guilty to the charges of sending threatening letters back in October. Some of the people Frisiello was accused of sending the letters and powder to included Antonio Sabato Jr., Senator Debbie Stabenow, and Donald Trump Jr., whose, then wife, opened the letter and was later rushed to the hospital after claiming she felt dizziness after opening the letter. The letter also contained a white powder inside of the envelope it was sent in. It was later determined that the powder was a harmless substance.

ABC News (@abcnews) reported, the judge declined to send Frisiello to serve any prison time because Frisiello is developmentally disabled and the judge “did not believe he would respond well to incarceration.” Frisiello thanked the judge for not sentencing him to serve any prison time. He said “the past year has been hell for me and my family.” Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Garland sought a 3-year prison sentence for Frisiello. Garland claimed Frisiello wrote and sent 13 letters over a 3-year period, and took steps to avoid detection, like dropping the letters off at different mailboxes. Friends and family of Frisiello wrote nearly 90 letters to the judge pleading for leniency before Frisiello was sentenced on Friday.

MY REVIEW OF GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8 EPISODE 2

KAREEM RAHMAN

 

 

 

Most of us have been watching this show long enough to know what last night’s episode was all about. Newer viewers may have seen joy, comradery, and love on the screen as they watched last night. We, veterans to the show know exactly what we were watching last night………DEATH!

 

 

 

Game Of Thrones writers have become the masters of taking the viewers on an emotional roller coaster. History tells us that last night’s celebration and pretty lighthearted episode full of some of our favorite characters, was nothing more than a retirement party for some of those same characters. Sorry to say, but I believe Lady…well Ser Brienne Of Tarth’s time being among the living has come to an end. The scene of Jaime making her a knight and the pure joy of seeing Brienne finally earn what she thought was impossible, pretty much sealed her fate in my eyes. Brienne is on an all-time high. It really can’t get any higher for her. Hate to see it, but in all likelihood it’s a rap for Brie. She won’t be making the crossover to the dead alone next week……in my opinion. Gendry also had a pretty good night last night. As creepy as the sex scene between him and Arya was to me. (We all pretty much watched Arya grow up. I understand that she’s done many grown-up things like killing multiple people, but it’s still hard for me to see her as an adult out here having sex and all.) I believe Gendry and Arya’s night together was about more than sex. Gendry revealed to Arya that he was Robert Baratheon’s bastard son. The king’s blood flows through his veins. I believe Arya will get pregnant by Gendry and fulfill Robert (Gendry’s dad) and Ned’s (Arya’s dad) greatest wishes. The two friends always wanted their families to join. That was what the marriage between Sansa and Joffrey was originally supposed to be about. With that whole thing coming full circle, I believe Gendry’s watch has ended. There’s really no more reason for him to remain alive if you really think about it. The prophecy has been fulfilled.

 

 

 

Jon Snow revealed a truth he learned from Sam last week to Dany. That he’s not actually Ned Stark’s bastard child. He is actually Rhaegar Targaryen’s (Dany’s older brother) son. That means that him and Dany are cousins? Aunt and nephew? I’m not sure, but those two are related! Instead of being shocked that she’d slept with, and fell in love with her relative, Dany’s main concern was that Jon is now the rightful heir to the Seven Kingdoms. Dany’s reaction led me to believe that she is about to go full Targaryen. Burn them all! My belief is that Dany is going to pull her armies in the middle of the fight with the dead, knock Jon off, and then go wreck shop at Cersei’s. Dany’s quest for the throne is much more important to her than any of the other stuff currently going on. Even while the dead is at Winterfell’s front door, Dany’s biggest concern is her right to the Iron Throne. Crazy! That whole Dany and Jon story might go the other way though. Jon May end up killing Dany. Either way it goes, I don’t see both of them coming out of this war alive. Sorry.

 

 

 

I believe Brandon Starks’ watch has ended too. But Brandon Stark has been dead for awhile now. He is now the Three Eyed Raven. Bran is willing to use himself as bait to draw the Night King away from his Army and hopefully make it easier to be killed. The belief is that, because the Night King is the leader, if you can kill him, the rest of the dead will just die since he’s the one who turned them. Bold Strategy, good luck with that. But yeah, Bran’s ass is as good as grass. Can’t say I’ll be sad to see his little weird ass go.

 

 

 

Jorah Mormont and his little cousin, Lyanna Mormont had an interesting little conversation that I believe was put into the script for a reason. Jorah was trying to get Lyanna to go underground with the women and children during the upcoming battle. Jorah told her that she was the last of their name and she should ensure her safety so their family’s name will live on. Lyanna wasn’t trying to hear that shit. She told him she was going to fight alongside her peoples. Brave, but considering the fact that little Lyanna Mormont has no battle experience whatsoever, I’m fully expecting her to get her body hauled off out there on the battlefield, ironically leaving Jorah as the last Mormont. If you recall, Jorah’s dad disowned him and told him that he could no longer use the family’s name. Now he will likely be the last of his name among the living. Interesting.

 

 

 

There are a few more people I think will die next week (Greyworm), but I won’t mention too many names or bring a bad omen on anyone else. All in all, last night’s episode was more interesting and more insightful than a lot of people on social media gave it credit for being. OR maybe I just put way too much thought into this shit. WE WILL SEE NEXT WEEK!
