Progressive provocateur and cable news regular Michael Avenatti struck a contrite tone in an interview with CNN on Saturday, admitting that he had been humbled in recent months. Avenatti, who was touted by leading progressives as the future Presidential candidate of the Democratic Party for scrappy appearances on cable news networks such as MSNBC, recently was indicted by federal authorities for an alleged extortion of clothing corporation Nike.
“I’ve been humbled. I’ve been humbled significantly. There’s been a lot of highs and there’s been a lot of lows, and, frankly, I’ve attempted not to get too high.”
Avenatti’s tone was a stone’s throw from his cable news highlights as Stormy Daniels’ attorney, where he threw red meat to progressives regarding President Trump’s supposed non-disclosure deal with the porn star. Daniels dropped Avenatti as her lawyer when he was arrested for domestic violence, an arrest for which he never faced charges.
Prosecutors claim that Avenatti tried to extort Nike into providing him a large cash payment and hiring him as a consultant to correct perceived injustices executed by the company, or that he’d expose a college basketball corruption scandal.
Avenatti is also facing charges related to his alleged fraud and embezzlement of legal client’s money. Individuals who hired Avenatti’s services claim that the California lawyer pocketed legal settlements they were personally entitled to without their permission, falsely claiming that they’d receive funds at a later date.
Avenatti could face a life sentence from the charges levied against him, a far cry from the up-and-coming pit bull’s 15 minutes of fame as the pugnacious prodigy of the Democratic Party.
Judge Dismisses Transgender Woman’s “Discrimination” Lawsuit Against Miss USA Pageant
Miss USA remains a pageant for biological females only.
Last Thursday a federal judge dismissed a transgender woman’s lawsuit that accused the Miss USA pageant of discrimination.
Anita Noelle Green is a biological male who claimed that “she” had a right to participate in the pageant’s competitions, but US District Judge Michael W. Mosman found that the law is not on “her” side.
Judge Mosman ruled that Miss United States of America LLC, a private corporation, cannot be forced to violate its mission of promoting “natural-born” females.
“I view it as an association that cannot under the Constitution be required to allow plaintiff to participate in what defendant says is a contradiction of that message,” he said.
Green competed in the 2018 Miss Montana pageant and won the 2019 Miss Earth Elite Oregon competition—but Miss USA denied “her” application. Green’s lawyer attempted to argue that the Miss USA corporation is predominately a commercial business that’s granted “minimal protection,” not a First Amendment-protected “expressive association.”
Judge Mosman, however, disagreed and found the pageant corporation to be a predominately expressive association, meaning that it is engaged in expressive activity and promotes a message.
In related news, Big League Politics recently covered Sen. Rand Paul’s confrontation with transgender HHS nominee Rachel Levine about “her” unwillingness to say that minors shouldn’t be bypassing their parents and making their own decisions about transitioning:
At Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Rand Paul confronted Rachel Levine, a transgender doctor and Biden’s Assistant HHS Secretary nominee, asking if “she” supports minors overriding their parents on transitioning to the opposite sex.
Levine’s response was as follows: “Senator, transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field, and if confirmed to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health, I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care…”
