Man Who Destroyed Trump’s Walk of Fame Star Learns His Fate

Seems he got off easy.

Published

on

A California man who decided to express his hatred for President Trump by taking a pickaxe to his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has decided to take a plea deal earlier this week.

Austin Clay, 24, appeared in Los Angeles County Superior Court and pleaded “no contest” to one felony count of vandalism causing more than $400 in damage. The deal he agreed to carries a sentence of one day in prison (which he apparently already served), 20 days community labor, and three years of probation.

But that’s not all. He’s also being required to pay $9,404.46 in restitution to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for damages and he must also attend “psychological counseling.”

According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, Clay could have faced a maximum three years in jail if convicted at trial. He is not the first to vandalize Trump’s star in Los Angeles. James Otis, 54, took a pickaxe and sledgehammer to the star in 2016, and was reportedly sentenced to three years probation. He was also ordered to pay “$3,700 to the Hollywood Historic Trust and $700 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.”

The real issue here isn’t that Clay doesn’t support President Trump. This is America. We’re allowed to hold personal opinions about the leadership in charge of running the country. We’re also allowed, thanks to the Constitution, to express those opinions in a public forum without concern of being silenced by the federal government.

However, there’s a right way to express your thoughts and beliefs, and there’s a wrong way. Clay chose the wrong way. This sort of unhinged anger has become a defining characteristic of the modern liberal movement, which doesn’t do much for winning folks over to the cause.

We in America — and this includes Republicans — need to stop being so vicious toward each other. We need to seek to find common ground with one another, to remember that we’re all image bearers of God, and as such, we need to treat each other with respect and dignity, even if we passionately disagree with each other’s political and ideological positions.

There are many important matters to discuss in our country right now. However, if we don’t learn the art of civil debate and discourse, this nation won’t survive. Here’s to hoping we all find a way to discuss these matters in a civilized way.

Trump, Pentagon Agree to Troop Escalation in The Middle East

The reason is plain to see.

Donald Trump

The Middle East is again bracing for turbulence this week after a number of yet-unpunished acts of aggression perpetrated by Iran draw attention to the region. Such turmoil is nothing new in this particular corner of the globe, where religious and political tensions run high seemingly nonstop.  The escalation this week comes to us courtesy of Iran, who are being blamed for two attacks on the Saudi Arabian oil infrastructure. The first fracas took place on the high seas where underwater drones acting as torpedoes “sabotaged” several Saudi oil tankers.  Mere hours later, an airborne drone caused a disruptive explosion to a Saudi-owned pipeline. US President Donald Trump has maintained his hope for staying uninvolved throughout the incidents, but it looks like at least some American military members will be headed to the region. “We’re going to be sending a relatively small number of troops,” the president told reporters outside the White House on Friday. “Mostly protective. Some very talented people are going to the Middle East right now. And we’ll see what happens.” No large military units, such as U.S. Army brigade combat teams, are expected to deploy. Instead, senior military leaders want to deploy an additional Patriot anti-aircraft missile battery, a defensive weapon system. They also want to deploy another warship or submarine to the region, more surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft and potentially more Air Force fighter jets. The total number of troops being deployed is said to be around 2,000. The drama between the US and Iran has been growing ever-more severe since President Trump effectively nullified America’s involvement in an Obama-era “nuclear deal” between the two nations.

Fake News Non-Neurologists Diagnose The Donald Live On Air

Never before has a President been subjected to so many uneducated opinions on his mental acuity.

Joe Scarborough

The ways in which President Donald Trump has been criticized are unprecedented in American history. Rising to power from outside of the Washington Swamp was Trump’s first sin in the eyes of many DC fat cats.  This CEO-in-Chief has wasn’t elected to play their game, and it shows both in Trump’s economic effectiveness and in the opposition that he’s face. Simply put:  The President is a threat to the Beltway’s cozy career politicians. That fact, when amplified by the existence of “the resistance”, has somehow given the mainstream media carte blanche to speculate wildly about this President. Take the latest from Morning Joe, for instance. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski agreed Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “sharp as a tack” while President Trump’s mental capacity has “completely changed.” The co-hosts discussed the ongoing feud between Pelosi, D-Calif., and Trump, which erupted this week after Pelosi accused Trump of engaging in a “cover-up” and the president cut short a meeting on infrastructure with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Scarborough said he’s known Pelosi for 25 years and she’s “tougher today than she was” back then and the difference between the two is “not even close.” The footage was pure media hysteria. https://twitter.com/Morning_Joe/status/1131866287032938496 President Trump has long suffered from the uninformed and uneducated opinions on non-doctors in the mainstream media, but with the focus suddenly on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s linguistic acuity, these attacks have been ramped up significantly.
