" The Duck Whisperer's day in court: Case dismissed! RAVES that a no-nonsense Fayette County magistrate judge dismissed charges against a disabled Fairchance veteran for raising her voice from a distance to middle-school-age minors and their inattentive parents at the town park, reportedly after observing one of the minors kicking the ducks. Without bias, the use here of the descriptive word inattentive is certainly justified, based on the conflicting testimony of the parents and another witness and the different versions of the "truth" that they and the town cop unsuccessfully tried to pass off in frustration as hard-core evidence. RANTS that the borough of Fairchance wasted so much time and public funds trying to get their stories to jive to prosecute anyone in a half-ass manor, without a shred of evidence. RANTS of the most putrid kind that the borough, which no longer could afford to hold its annual community Veterans Day picnic, shamefully squandered valuable police time and borough public money prosecuting an elderly disabled veteran for raising her voice to alert middle-school age minors and their inattentive parents to stop hurting the ducks. Oh, and did we forget to say earlier that the harassment charge was made because she told them in a raised voice that the police were being called. Yes, the borough has a solicitor. Respectfully, we must ask where was he before today -- i.e., where, before sitting in the public seats of the courtroom today -- in helping the trio and cop prosecutor realize they had no evidence against her to constitute harassment, fighting, or disorderly conduct? Respectfully, we ask why didn't the borough solicitor realize before -- or even right after -- the charges were filed against the elderly disabled veteran that the three witnesses were each other's worst enemies with their all too different tales of what happened on July 25. They didn't even agree on which area of the park the verbal exchange actually happened for goodness sakes. As readers here well know, the father of the minors one month earlier in June walked towards the elderly Fairchance Duck Whisperer when she raised her voice, again from a distance, as the family brought their pet fox through the park on a leash. The father of the middle-school-age minors pled guilty to disorderly conduct, for walking a distance that evening in June towards the elderly disabled veteran to impose his-up close, angry mug in her face. He reacted that way after she raised her voice from a distance, in shock that one of the middle-school-age minors pulled a pet fox on a leash around the community park with clearly visible posted signs that not even harmless dogs on a leash are permitted. The father of the minors, as a result of that June move towards the elderly disabled veteran, later pled guilty to having a fox without proper state permits. Naturally and conveniently for the prosecution, none of those guilty pleas and fines imposed against the father could be discussed today in court, however. Who knows if the state game commission got complaints from anyone other than the Duck Whisperer about the fox. Today's prosecutorial farce in a Masontown court was simply a foolish personal action taken against the vet turned Duck Whisperer after complaints were made to the state game commission, the state police and borough police about the fox being in the park and reportedly carried in arm out of the park to the vet's home property to harass and intimidate her. RAVES to watching intriguing court hearings. Intriguing, we say, because the Duck Whisper's case was held in a court with a no-nonsense judge and skilled defense objections that stopped it from becoming a kangaroo court. But, no, there was certainly nothing intriguing in the least about the shameful farce that the prosecution and witnesses produced this afternoon. RANTS that a cop would push so hard to convict a spite case and RANTS that he and witnesses would protest in shout out after the judge dismissed the case without merit. RAVES of hope that the ducks at the park won't be hurt again. That happy thought might just be too much to wish for, given the players here did not even think to refer back to the already scripted account that the cop wrote in the original citations of what happened on July 25 as they winged it in testimony under oath today about it. Fairchance Borough has a long history of allowing the ducks to be harmed. Nobody has ever been charged in all the documented complaints that people such as the elderly, disabled vet and others have made to the state game commission and police clear back over a few decades. That sad fact must change. jt 8 Dec 17" rants and rves

Trump's asking Poppy to "twirl" in front of him doesn't seem to be something asked of her that she hadn't already done for a crowd of onookers, judges, and Trump himself when she paraded her body on stage.
The women who did that would walk forward towards the audience and stop, and then turn a half circle to show their behinds to the audience and judges, and then complete the circular turn and walk over to pose in a lineup with all the other bikini-clad women who wanted their appearances to be judged.
They wanted their bodies "judged" while they showed off their bodies wearing the equivalents of bras and panties.

An Associated Press report published Monday details the sexism female contestants and crew experienced from Trump while working on the show. Eight former “Apprentice” crew members told the AP Trump once compared a camerawoman’s beauty to his daughter’s, making repeated comments about the camerawoman’s behind. A former contestant on the show, Poppy Carlig, said Trump once asked her to twirl in front of him so he could look at her figure. “I don’t immediately jump to the conclusion that people are having bad intentions with what they are saying,” Carlig told the AP. “He said I reminded him of his daughter and I thought that was really touching because I know how much he values his family.” Trump has made a slew of questionable comments about his daughter’s looks over the years, saying on ABC’s “The View” in 2006 that “if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps, I would be dating her.” “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father . .R 01;. “ Trump said to Rolling Stone in 2015. In a 1999 interview with radio host Howard Stern, Trump said his daughter ― who was then 17 ― made him promise he would never date a woman younger than her.
