Grieving father Jonathan Vanderhagen, who was thrown in jail with a $500,000 bond after making social media posts exposing a judge he blames for taking away his now-deceased son, was acquitted today on all charges in a Macomb County, Mich. courtroom.
Big League Politics reported on this case last week, and it has gained national attention due to its unconstitutional and overreaching implications. Vanderhagen’s lawyer, Nicholas Somberg, made the announcement that his client was exonerated today on social media.
“I asked in my closing for a QUICK Not Guilty to send a message to the prosecutor that this was WRONG,” Somberg declared in a Facebook post.
“Jury deliberated for 26 minutes and 8 seconds … Jonathan Vanderhagen is FREE!!!” he added.
Earlier in the day, Somberg noted that Vanderhagen took the stand and gave testimony about his painful ordeal. There was “not a dry eye in the room” as Vanderhagen talked about the pain of losing a young daughter and then being punished by the courts for speaking out about what had happened.
Vanderhagen was given an opportunity to take a plea deal and avoid trial, but refused to admit guilt to a crime he did not believe he committed. He was eventually vindicated by a jury of his own peers, who affirmed his right to free speech in the court of law earlier today.
The nightmare began for Vanderhagen after he lost a custody battle for his son over two years ago, and then his son died shortly after while in his mother’s custody. He had warned the court about the mother’s history of unstable behavior, but his pleas were ultimately ignored by Judge Rachel Rancilio and the court referee. Vanderhagen believes their decision was ill-advised and possibly led to his son’s untimely death.
Vanderhagen expressed his anguish on social media afterward, assigning blame toward Judge Rancilio for her role in the custody hearing. As a result, Rancilio complained about her safety, and the Macomb County Sheriff’s office charged Jonathan with malicious use of telecommunications services to protect her from Vanderhagen’s free speech.
Rancilio tried to garner sympathy in the court room earlier in the week by claiming on the stand that she received numerous death threats because of Vanderhagen’s social media posts. Rancilio had hoped an example would be made of Vanderhagen so the little people would know the consequences that resulted from speaking ill of the kritarchy.
“It wasn’t just one post,” she said while attempting to produce crocodile tears. “It was a compilation of it all. … I was scared something was going to happen to myself, my children.”
“The death threats I’ve been getting as a result of this stuff is horrifying. I’m terrified. It continues to this day,” she added.
Rancilio’s sentiments were ultimately rejected by the jury, who found that Vanderhagen’s 1st Amendment rights were more important than her subjective feelings.
While Vanderhagen’s life has been harmed substantially because of a court system desperate to shield its own, justice was finally served today with a victory for whistle-blowers against judicial tyranny nationwide.
EMAIL LEAK: Nashville Dem Mayor’s Office Colludes to Hide Data Indicating Restaurants and Bars Were Not COVID-19 Hotspots
Leaked emails have shown the Dems are deceiving on COVID-19.
Democrat leaders of Nashville, Tenn. have been exposed for colluding to hide data showing that bars and restaurants were not major transmission points of COVID-19 despite the fake news hype.
Some of the top advisors of Nashville Mayor John Cooper have been indicated in a plot to hide information that might alleviate some of the mass hysteria related to COVID-19, which has crippled small businesses including bars and restaurants.
While Democrats have looked the other way with regards to mass protests featuring violent communists and anti-white thugs, they have incessantly demonized restaurant owners and bar owners throughout the pandemic. The contents of this email leak suggest that Democrats are targeting restaurants and bars to punish the American people and hurt the economy to hurt President Trump’s re-election chances.
The controversy stems from findings by the state’s contact tracing team. They determined on June 30 that nursing homes and construction were major hot spots for the spread of COVID-19, with each category logging over a thousand cases of the virus. However, bars and restaurants accounted for only 22 cases. The Mayor’s officials schemed to keep this information away from the public.
“This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?” asked Leslie Waller of the health department.
“Correct, not for public consumption,” senior advisor Benjamin Eagles added.
This created the de facto policy of keeping the information under wraps by the Mayor’s office. The health department refused to confirm the numbers when they were asked about them during the summer by the press.
Tennessee Lookout reporter Nate Rau asked: “The figure you gave of ‘more than 80’ does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a very big problem?”
Health department official Brian Todd said to five health department officials: “Please advise how you recommend I respond.”
The whistleblower, whose name was redacted from emails, reportedly responded at the time: “My two cents. We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site. We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.”
Nashville Councilman Steve Glover is up in arms about the Democrat officials plotting to keep the people scared and in the dark regarding COVID-19 numbers.
“We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes, their apartments…and we did it on bogus data. That should be illegal,” Glover said to FOX 17 News about the Democrats omitting this crucial information from the public.
This is not the only instance of the COVID-19 numbers being fudged to keep the panic alive with the beleaguered public. There has been constant subterfuge from globalists to convince the public that the lockdown is necessary.
Big League Politics has reported on the staggering overstatement of COVID-19 case numbers by reporting facilities in Florida:
The Florida Department of Health is scrambling after fraud was discovered in how COVID-19 testing rates were being reported across the state.
After the health department released a report showing a stunning statewide positivity rate of 11 percent, analysis of the numbers revealed severe irregularities. Many labs reported 100 percent positivity, meaning that every test came back positive.
In addition to the labs reporting 100 percent positivity, there were other testing facilities that reported abnormal levels of positive tests. FOX 35 found that Centra Care reported that 83 people who submitted tests were all counted as positive. The Orlando Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center reported a 76 percent positivity rate, NCF Diagnostics reported tests at a 88 percent positivity rate, and Orlando Health reported a 98 percent positivity rate.
Orlando Health has admitted that the results from the health department’s report are dubious. They said that their positivity rate was only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as it was shown in the report. This casts major doubt regarding the accuracy of the total cases that have been reported in Florida.
The fake news has used Florida as an example to bolster their COVID-19 mass hysteria due to all of the supposed cases that were popping up throughout the state.
There have been reports of COVID-19 case numbers being faked in Texas as well:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced last week that the number of new COVID-19 cases was erroneous, with an artificially high number of cases, due to system upgrades and coding errors with their reporting system.
Abbott explained that the Texas Department of State Health Services brought in a data team to review the suspect numbers. The positivity rates reached a stunning 24.5 percent last Wednesday, which caused the media alarmists to create more hysteria among the beleaguered masses.
DSHS press officer Lara Anton said that this happened because of a computer update that occurred on Aug. 1, resulting in positives being uploaded into the system multiple times. Coding errors were also discovered in one hospital lab and another commercial lab that resulted in additional positives being counted to the total.
Dallas County Director of Health and Human Services Dr. Phillip Huang made excuses for the glaring errors which are being used to shutter certain businesses throughout Texas.
“We are still dealing with paper faxes of lab data and lab reports – hundreds of those a day that we’re having to deal with,” Huang said.
“The systems have not really been designed to handle this many numbers,” he added. “It’s an unprecedented situation we’re dealing with.”
While the so-called experts would like to make it appear as if this some kind of honest mistake, irregularities in the reporting have steadily occurred throughout the country.
Democrats have engineered this scamdemic and cannot give up on the lie because they would be held accountable for the needless damage they have caused to the American people for political purposes.
