Keep her butt in prison. This is no different than a gang member killing and robbing for the profit of the gang. The pimp should be doing his own time in the pen. A man's life was taken for someone else's profit. Movies | ‘Clemency’ Review: No Place for Mercy A tremendous Alfre Woodard plays a warden at a prison whose world is upended by the fate of death-row inmates. Credit... Paul Sarkis/Neon Published Dec. 25, 2019 Updated Dec. 26, 2019 Sometimes acting seems like possession. That’s how Alfre Woodard’s performance in “Clemency” feels as she violently sweeps you up with the force of her talent. It takes a while before you grasp how deep she’s gone. As Bernadine Williams, a warden at a men’s prison, Woodard enters with a stealthy lack of showiness. She’s playing the very model of a dispassionate overlord whether Bernadine is managing employees or asking a death-row inmate about his last meal, giving everyone the same exacting courtesy even if that semblance of composure has started to quietly crumble. The fissures aren’t fully visible when you first meet Bernadine, whose every word, gesture and expression seems to have been carefully calibrated to meet the unusual demands of her profession. Everything in her world is in its place, every hair has been managed, every response, too. At work, she sits at an orderly desk that looks too large for her, a wall of putty-colored filing cabinets looming behind her. Each cabinet holds untold numbers of documents that together form a monument of tragedy, a compendium of death and destruction, lost lives and grim pain. Working in a near hush that dovetails with the muted palette, the writer-director Chinonye Chukwu creates a persuasive, controlled, methodically coherent world for Bernadine. She’s at ease floating in her bubble of apparent calm, seemingly content to go with the flow as she relaxes at home with her husband (Wendell Pierce) or downs a drink or two at a bar. This pervasive tranquillity is strengthened by the harmonizing production design and cinematography that — with little clutter and deep shadows — give the different locations a similar look and vibe. Over time, scene by scene, these spaces blur together, locking Bernadine in claustrophobic sameness. She begins falling apart when an inmate’s execution by lethal injection is botched, an unspeakable, frenzied calamity that plays out under Bernadine’s close supervision. The bungled execution rattles the prison, but Bernadine initially seems more concerned with the investigation that it generates. Yet even as she briskly gets back to business, a near-imperceptible change seems to have occurred, affecting her like a slight drop in the barometric pressure. She has trouble sleeping, which doesn’t seem unusual. But as she goes through the motions, she also seems increasingly detached from everyone and everything in her life, including her fretful husband. Chukwu escalates the stakes and deepens the drama with another prisoner, Anthony Woods (Aldis Hodge), a death-row inmate making his last appeal. Chukwu’s writing can sometimes be too on the nose, spelling out the already obvious, but for the most part she doesn’t over-explain Anthony, whose despairing resignation and profound isolation Hodge fills in with a discreetly shutdown physicality and a gaze turned inward. It’s an achingly moving performance that’s shrewdly balanced by a small, heart-heavy turn from Richard Schiff as Anthony’s lawyer, an anti-death row activist whose sagging affect suggests that he’s spent a lifetime fighting a losing battle. As the clock on Anthony’s most recent appeal runs out, Chukwu deepens the connections between warden and prisoner, putting the characters into play even when they’re apart. Both Bernadine and Anthony are captives of their worlds, legally, spiritually, morally. This sounds more simplistic and schematic than what plays out onscreen, where the vividness of the main performances tends to mitigate the scripted sins. Chukwu further complicates the story with a few other lesser characters, including some angry, grieving relatives and Anthony’s old girlfriend (a very fine Danielle Brooks), who makes an unexpected if predictably disruptive appearance. Woodard’s performance gathers its astonishing force incrementally, in subtle choices and inflections that you might not even register as actorly decisions. When Bernadine first patrols the prison, you see a woman supremely in control, a professional whose casual authority informs her every gesture and whose absolute power has relaxed her posture, determined the rhythm of her gait, put an easy swing in her arms. That same power is what finally undoes Bernadine, a tragic figure whom Woodard brilliantly dismantles piece by ravaged piece, tearing apart a false front — and the larger institution this woman faithfully upheld — with unapologetic ferocity. Clemency Rated R for scenes of executions. Running time: 1 hour 53 minutes.

Funny Games couple reunited.
Hate how these guys look at their phone every few minutes.

Her eye makeup looks so real—I didnt recognize her. I think this is the first time Ive seen the eyes redone so convincingly—often Ive seen the opposite and they left the eyes the same but then I always recognize by the eyes. So this, is awesome. W ednesday brought more news of President Trump’s determination to use the powers of the presidency as inducements for people to do his bidding. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is fighting extradition from England to the United States, claims that he was offered a presidential pardon if he publicly denied that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign. Assange’s claim, along with Tuesday’s grants of clemency by Trump, helps to explain the president’s special love of this unique presidential prerogative. Of all of his powers, clemency comes closest to fulfilling his view that as president he can do whatever he wants and, at the same time, to revealing the primitive and instinctive component of Trump’s personality, what Sigmund Freud called “id”. The president has proudly proclaimed that “all agree the US president has the complete power to pardon. ” Trump’s ability to use this power in this way contrasts with his openly expressed frustration that “because I’m the president of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department … I’m not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing. ” But the president is not alone in taking an expansive view of executive clemency. According to an 1866 decision of the US supreme court, that power is “unlimited”, extending to “every offense known to the law”. Other courts have been even more explicit about the vastness of the clemency power, saying: “An executive may grant a pardon, for good reasons or bad, or for any reason at all, and his act is final and irrevocable. Even for the grossest abuse of this discretionary power, the law affords no remedy. ” No wonder Trump calls the clemency power a “beautiful thing”. In spite of his appreciation of this beautiful thing, Trump has been relatively parsimonious in using it. In his three years in office he has pardoned or commuted the sentences of only 35 people. Contrast this with, President Obama who issued just under 2, 000 clemencies during his eight years in office. But, as in other arenas, when the president has used the clemency power he has circumvented the norms and procedures that in the past have governed it. He has bypassed the office of the pardon attorney in the justice department which for more than a century has played a key gatekeeping role for people seeking clemency. He has ignored offenders who have followed that department’s procedures, while granting pardons and commutations to a rogues’ gallery of the notorious and the well-connected or to people whose cases seem to have struck his fancy. In addition, the people to whom Trump has been merciful are overwhelmingly male and white. Only two of Trump’s best-known acts of clemency have gone to African Americans. One went to Alice Marie Johnson, who served 21 years of a life sentence for a non-violent drug conviction. The other went, posthumously, to Jack Johnson. The famous boxer was sentenced in 1920 for violating the Mann Act, when he traveled with a white woman he was in a relationship with across state lines. In his use of the clemency power, Trump has shown special solicitude to people whose actions violate the public trust and subvert the system of justice itself. This has been true since his first use of that power, in August 2017, when he pardoned former sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio had been jailed for his defiance of a court order directing him to stop engaging in racial profiling. It was also revealed in his April 2018 pardon of Scooter Libby, an aide to former vice-president Dick Cheney who was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice, and in the pardon of the Rudy Giuliani associate Bernard Kerik, who pleaded guilty to federal charges of tax fraud and lying to investigators in 2009. And, in commuting the sentence of the former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, Trump was granting clemency to his own alter ego. Blagojevich, a Democrat, was impeached and removed from office in 2009 for corruption, and was later indicted on multiple corruption charges. Like Trump’s infamous effort to impose a quid pro quo on the Ukrainians, Blagojevich was accused of trying to solicit personal favors and sell Barack Obama’s vacant US Senate seat when he won the presidency. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison. During his trial, a taped phone conversation revealed Blagojevich saying: “I’ve got this thing, and it’s fucking golden. I’m just not giving it up for fucking nothing. ” Signaling his identification with Blagojevich the president said: “I would think that there have been many politicians – I’m not one of them by the way – that have said a lot worse over the phone. ” Trump dismissed the governor’s comments from his phone call as “braggadocio” and insufficient for a conviction. Writing in 1833 about the president’s clemency power, the chief justice of the United States, John Marshall, said that it would always entail “an act of grace, proceeding from the power entrusted with the execution of the laws”. This grace, he conceded, is beyond the reach of legal compulsion or regulation. It is left to the president’s unfettered discretion, and its wise use depends on the judgment and propriety of those who wield it. Clemency, in the words of the English legal theorist, William Blackstone, is “a court of equity in [the president’s] own breast”. Assange’s claim, along with Trump’s recent pardons and commutations, raises doubts yet again about the judgment and propriety of the current president. Americans should recognize those things for what they are, namely more signals of the president’s disdain for the rule of law. Because there is no legal avenue to challenge Trump’s use of clemency, it is left to the American people to decide whether to continue to entrust Donald Trump with the unfettered power to grant pardons and reprieves. Austin Sarat is professor of political science and law, jurisprudence and social thought and the author of a book on the use of clemency in capital cases, Mercy on Trial: What it Means to Stop an Execution.

Charlize Theron looks like an aged Magyn Kelly. Jerusalem Israeli. United States President Donald Trump has gone on a clemency blitz, commuting the 14-year prison sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and pardoning former New York Police Department Commissioner Bernie Kerik, among a long list of others. Trump also told reporters that he has pardoned financier Michael Milken, who pleaded guilty for violating US securities laws and served two years in prison in the early 1990s. Trump also pardoned Edward DeBartolo Jr, the former San Francisco 49ers owner who was convicted in a gambling fraud scandal and who built one of the most successful National Football League teams in the game's history. Blagojevich, who appeared on Trump's reality TV show, Celebrity Apprentice, was convicted of political corruption, including seeking to sell an appointment to Barack Obama's old US Senate seat and trying to shake down a children's hospital. But Trump said he had been subjected to a "ridiculous sentence" that didn't fit his crimes. Kerik served just over three years for tax fraud and lying to the White House while being interviewed to be secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. "We have Bernie Kerik, we have Mike Milken, who's gone around and done an incredible job, " Trump said, adding that Milken had "paid a big price". Earlier, the White House announced that Trump had pardoned DeBartolo Jr, who was involved in one of the biggest owners' scandals in US football's history. In 1998, he pleaded guilty to failing to report a felony when he paid $400, 000 to former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards in exchange for a riverboat gambling licence. He also pardoned Ariel Friedler, a technology entrepreneur, who pleaded guilty to accessing a computer without authorisation; Paul Pogue, a construction company owner who underpaid his taxes; David Safavian, who was convicted of obstructing an investigation into a trip he took while he was a senior government official; and Angela Stanton, an author who served a six-month home sentence for her role in a stolen vehicle ring. Poll-tested clemency Blagojevich, a Democrat who hails from a state with a long history of pay-to-play schemes, exhausted his last appellate option in 2018 and had seemed destined to remain behind bars until his projected 2024 release date. His wife, Patti, went on a media blitz in 2018 to encourage Trump to step in, praising the president and likening the investigation of her husband to special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election - a probe Trump long characterised as a "witch-hunt". Blagojevich's conviction was notable, even in a state where four of the last 10 governors have gone to prison for corruption. Judge James Zagel - who in 2011 sentenced Blagojevich to the longest prison term yet for an Illinois politician - said when a governor "goes bad, the fabric of Illinois is torn and disfigured". Blagojevich became the brunt of jokes for foul-mouthed rants on wiretaps released after his December 9, 2008 arrest while still governor. On the most notorious recording, he gushes about profiting by naming someone to the seat Obama vacated to become president: "I've got this thing and it's f****** golden. And I'm just not giving it up for f****** nothing. " When Trump publicly broached the idea in May 2018 of intervening to free Blagojevich, he downplayed the former governor's crimes. He said Blagojevich was convicted for "being stupid, saying things that every other politician, you know, that many other politicians say". He said Blagojevich's sentence was too harsh. A court reporter looks at a quote taken from a recorded conversation by former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich during his impeachment trial [Frank Polich/AP Photo] Prosecutors have balked at the notion long fostered by Blagojevich that he engaged in common political horse-trading and was a victim of an overzealous US attorney, Patrick Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald said after Blagojevich's arrest that the governor had gone on "a political corruption crime spree" that would make Abraham Lincoln turn over in his grave. Mueller - a subject of Trump's derision - was FBI director during the investigation into Blagojevich. Fitzgerald is now a private attorney for another former FBI director, James Comey, whom Trump dismissed from the agency in May 2017. Trump also expressed some sympathy for Blagojevich when he appeared on Celebrity Apprentice in 2010 before his first corruption trial started. As Trump "fired" Blagojevich as a contestant, he praised him for how he was fighting his criminal case, telling him: "You have a hell of a lot of guts. " He later poll-tested the matter, asking for a show of hands of those who supported clemency at an October, 2019 fundraiser at his Chicago hotel. Most of the 200 to 300 attendees raised their hands, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing several people at the event. Blagojevich testified at his 2011 retrial, describing himself as a flawed dreamer grounded in his parents' working-class values. He sought to humanise himself to counteract the blunt, profane, seemingly greedy Blagojevich heard on wiretap recordings played in court by prosecutors over several weeks. He said the hours of FBI recordings were the ramblings of a politician who liked to think out loud. But jurors accepted evidence that Blagojevich demanded a $50, 000 donation from the head of a children's hospital in return for increased state support, and extorted $100, 000 in donations from two horse-racing tracks and a racing executive in exchange for quick approval of legislation the tracks' owners wanted. He was originally convicted on 18 counts, including lying to the FBI, wire fraud for trying to trade an appointment to the Obama seat for contributions, and for the attempted extortion of a children's hospital executive. The 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago in 2015 tossed out five of 18 counts against Blagojevich, including ones in which he offered to appoint someone to a high-paying job in the US Senate. The appeals court ordered the trial judge to resentence Blagojevich, but suggested it would be appropriate to hand him the same sentence, given the gravity of the crimes. Blagojevich appeared via live video from prison during the 2016 resentencing and asked for leniency. The judge gave him the same 14-year term, saying it was below federal guidelines when he imposed it the first time. Blagojevich had once aspired to run for president himself but entered the Federal Correctional Institution Englewood in suburban Denver in 2012, disgraced and broke. Court documents filed by his lawyers in 2016 portrayed Blagojevich - known as brash in his days as governor - as humble and self-effacing, as well as an insightful life coach and lecturer on everything from the Civil War to Richard Nixon. Blagojevich, an Elvis Presley fan, also formed a prison band called The Jailhouse Rockers.

This reminds me of THE MORNING SHOW which is based (somewhat) on the Today Show scandal in which Matt Lauer was accused of sexual harassment.


So These are all Netflix new releases. 😏.
