While Obama gives away the Ukraine to the ‘U.S.S.R’. (reassembly in progress), the minds of many Americans are focused on this latest puppet show.
The NBA is in the process of removing the LA Clippers from Donald Sterling, and giving the team to Magic Johnson, et al, at bargain basement pricess. Sterling, an 80 + year old billionaire, who behaved as though money could buy everything, humiliated himself and family with a much younger mistress. This woman got a tape of him saying that she could screw any of the players she liked but he did not want her appearing at the NBA games with them. Since the skin coloration of the players was mentioned, it has been deemed that Sterling’s words were worse than domestic violence and concealing the rape of minors.
California does not allow one party to privately record the words or actions of another party without permission. The sanctions against Sterling are being carried out using illegally obtained “evidence”.
Recently tech millionaire, Gurbaksh Chahal escaped more than 40 charges related to allegedly beating his girlfriend for 30 minutes in a San Francisco apartment. The video recorded by a security camera in his apartment was considered private, by California law, and inadmissible as evidence. Supposedly it was unlawfully acquired by the police. CEO Chahal was permitted to remain on the board of the tech company, RadiumOne, but consumer pressures related to their IPO, have caused him to lose that position. The delay in firing Chahal is explained in an internal memo from the new CEO of RadiumOne.
In 2008, an 18 year old pro-life activist was threatened with a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood for making a tape inside a Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles facility. She had posed as an underage girl, with an adult boyfriend, seeking an abortion. The tape showed her being advised, by a PP employee, to falsify her age. She was told to relinquish the tapes to Planned Parenthood because they were in violation of California’s privacy laws. This forced the 18 year old college student to pull the Youtube videos and in moving Live Action Films’ efforts to the states which do not have such privacy laws.
While pondering why California’s privacy laws protect law-breaking abortion clinics and domestic abusers, but not doddering old men arguing with mistresses, click THIS LINK, and read Ben Shapiro’s report on what activities will NOT produce a permanent ban in the NBA. Perhaps it will make you reconsider whether professional basketball is your kind of entertainment.
