Penn State Witness Mike McQueary’s Testimony: “Some Kind Of Intercourse Was Going On”


Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary testified this morning that he had not used the specific words “sodomy,” “rape,” or “anal sex” when he first told Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and then-vice president Gary Schultz what he had seen Jerry Sandusky doing to a boy in the football showers on March 1, 2002. But at today’s preliminary hearing on the charges against Curley and Schultz, according to an account of McQueary’s testimony written by Sara Ganim of the Patriot-Newsof Harrisburg, McQueary made it clear he had told those officials that what he saw was “severe”:

“I would have said that Jerry was in there in very close proximity to a boy with his arms wrapped around him. I said I heard slapping sounds. I described it was extremely sexual and that some kind of intercourse was going on. … There’s no question in my mind that I conveyed to them that I saw Jerry in the showers and that it was severe acts and that it was wrong and over the line.”

McQueary’s previous testimony to the grand jury investigating Sandusky led to the charges against Curley and Schultz, for perjury and failure to report abuse. McQueary’s testimony this morning seemed consistent with what he had told the grand jury, based on the summary of the grand jury’s findings that has been made public.

According to Twitter accounts of McQueary’s testimony from this morning provided by the Patriot-News, McQueary said that he had gone to the Lasch Football Building that night to pick up a pair of sneakers and a football game film from his locker. While there, he heard a “rhythmic slapping sound” and saw in a mirror Jerry Sandusky in the shower with a boy who appeared to be 10 or 12 years old. He believed Sandusky was “molesting the boy”:

“I stepped back, didn’t want to see it anymore to be frank with you. I closed my locker door,” McQueary said.

McQueary then decided to move toward shower and look in before leaving. Jerry and the boy were apart.

“They both turned so their bodies were facing me. They were four or five feet apart,” McQueary said.

“I know they saw me. They looked directly in my eyes,” McQueary said.

“Seeing that they were separated, I thought it was best to leave locker room. Frankly you can’t describe what I thought or was feeling.”

McQueary said he didn’t say anything to Sandusky or the boy. Didn’t intervene. Decided to go to his office in building.

McQueary: “I called my father,” upon going to office.

McQueary on why he called dad: “I really didn’t know what to do.”

Told him what he saw, said “what i saw was wrong.” Said he needed advice. Father told him to come home right away.

McQueary called Paterno next morning between 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. Said: “Coach, I need to talk to you.”

McQueary: “(Paterno) said ‘if it’s about a job, don’t bother, I don’t have one for you.’ McQueary tells him it’s not.

“The rough positioning I would have described, but not in very much detail,” McQueary said of what he told Paterno at his house.

Never said the words “anal intercourse” to Paterno “out of respect,” McQueary said.

McQueary: Paterno needed to know since he was the head coach.

McQueary said Paterno told him: “Sorry you had to see that. You did the right thing.”

Sometime after that, McQuery testified, Curley called him and he met with Curley and Schultz. He told them that “what I had seen was extremely sexual, extremely wrong,” and they told him they would investigate. Later, they told him that they had reported the incident to The Second Mile and that Sandusky had been told to stay away from the football facility, though McQueary said Sandusky showed up later anyway. McQueary testified that the officials had told him not to discuss the incident.

In the cross-examination by Curley’s attorney, Caroline Roberto, the judge would not allow questioning about a conversation McQueary reportedly had with Dr. Jonathan Dranov, his father’s best friend, at his father’s house after he left the football building. Pressed as to why he didn’t use the term “anal sodomy” when relating the incident to Paterno, McQueary said, “Ma’am, you don’t go to Coach Paterno and go in great detail about sexual acts,” adding, “I would not have used the words ‘anal intercourse.’ I said ‘extremely sexual act.'”

Under questioning from Tom Farrell, Schultz’s attorney, McQueary said he believed what he had seen to be a crime. Questioned further about the details, McQueary said that boy was not bent over, and he had not seen Sandusky with an erection. Asked why he did not report the incident to police, McQueary said, “Because it was delicate in nature.” McQueary said he left the boy alone with Sandusky because he was sure the sexual assault was over. By meeting with Curley and Schultz, McQueary said, he felt he had gone to the police, since Schultz’s oversight included the campus police. McQueary said he “without a doubt” tried to avoid Sandusky after the incident. He also said Curley and Schultz gave him no indication they had discussed the matter with police officials.

Ohioans Slam Boehner over Backroom Keystone XL Tar Sands Deal


Uploaded by on Dec 14, 2011

Activists bring “Human Oil Spill” to Boehner’s front door in response to his backroom Keystone XL deal and cozy relationship with Big Oil.
The Republican-controlled House passed a bill,12/14/2011, that would extend a Social Security payroll tax cut, but added on a series of unrelated provisions including calls for speeding the construction of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would move tar sands oil from Canada to Texas. Jon Boehner’s handiwork.
Event was planned and executed by activists from Occupy Cincinnati Energy Action Coalition and 350.org.
350.org is an international grassroots climate campaign. “350” represents 350 parts per million, the safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We are currently at 398.78ppm and if we don’t change that soon there will be no turning back.
Boehner and many others in the US Congress are nothing more than “Corporate Whores”.
They serve the interests of their corporate taskmasters and not the American people.
The US Capital has become a brothel where K Street pimps buy their political prostitutes to do their bidding. Only a handful of representatives truly “represent” the interests of Americans, and John Boehner is definitely not one of them.
A look at how he has profited in wealth and position by selling out to corporate interests tell the story,

Gov. Nikki Haley, Will You Keep Your Promise to “Personally Provides Rides” to Fellow People of Color in SC Who Need to Get Photo Voter ID?


Governor Nikki Haley may be “Proud to be Indian,” but she sides with the white power structure in her state, South Carolina, which has passed laws to suppress the voting power of blacks, Latinos and, especially, the elderly, by requiring that they have photo ID to vote in elections beginning in 2012.  When there was a backlash, Gov. Haley said that she “personally” would provide transportation to the 200,000 South Carolinians who needed to go and purchase photo ID to be able to vote in 2012. What has she done to keep her promise? I went to Google to get an answer. Browsing through 4 pages of top responses showed to activity past September:

Only 25 South Carolinians Getting Free Rides to DMV for Voter IDs
http://www.pacificprogressive.com/…/only-25-south-carolinians-getting-fre…
Oct 20, 2011 – areas by the percentage of seniors with poor access to public transportation, now Only 25 South Carolina residents have scheduled a free ride to obtain a photo ID on Wednesday as part of an effort by the state to show that Gov. Nikki Haley promised anyone without proper ID that the state would offer

Nikki Haley and her fellow Republican governors are “Solving a Problem That Doesn’t Exist.” I found a shocking statement that contradicts Haley’s pride in her heritage which explains why she is not working hand-in-hand with blacks and Latinos in South Carolina to reverse the state’s history of racial discrimination:

Nikki Haley Carpool Update – You’re Paying

“Find me those people who think that this is invading their rights — find — and I will go take them to the DMV myself and help them get that picture ID,” Haley said in the interview.
Of course the governor – whose own ID lists her as “white” – obviously wasn’t chomping at the bit to make good on that promise, at least not until she discovered that there were also uneducated crackers (i.e. her people) who needed rides, too.
Sheesh …
Democrats bashed Haley’s move as a “political stunt.”
English: South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley

Although South Carolina elected an Indian as governor, the influx of Latinos into the state is not welcomed.  The presence of the descendants of South Carolina’s African slaves still gives whites an uncomfortable feeling. It is hoped that the investigation by US Attorney General into the voter suppression law will lead to justice for the 200,000 South Carolinians who are losing their civil right to vote.

Michele Bachmann Runs for President Yet Silent on Black Issues 1


Yes, Michele. Black people exist in Minnesota and need your help!

Michele Bachmann from Minnesota is running for President.  She never speaks of issues that would benefit blacks and people of color.  She is driven by her obsessive hatred of one black, Barack Obama and seems to speak on TV only of one issue which consumes her: “Repealing Obamacare” even though it is successfully saving lives. She speaks of ‘all her fighting in Washington,’ yet, what has she accomplished? “I brought 40,000 people to Washington.” So what! When she launched her campaign, I Googled “Michele Bachmann’s legislative accomplishments” and received no responses except for a curious story of her hiding in the bushes to do research on gay people. It appeared to me that she rose to national disinterest with her hateful campaign against the LGBT community.  She spoke out against federal welfare programs while she and her fabulous husband, Marcus, were living on the benefits of federal welfare. Her larger family, too! Michele was dubbed a welfare “Queen.”  Michele Bachmann never speaks out about the economic and social inequality in America…and disgraceful racial politics in her state. Yes, there is an article in the news which describes the misery of being black in Minneapolis, Minn.  Michele, what do say about the attached article and the plight of black people you represent? Will you continue to be silent? Will you continue your campaign as “Poor Johnny, One Note?” Black Minnesotans need the services of your office, too. A President Bachmann would be a misery to black Americans and people of color. Also, you decry Obamacare, yet, where is ‘Bachmanncare?’

Republican Party (United States)

Image via Wikipedia

Lobbyists have convinced Republicans to present environmental issues as coming from the Democrats and are, ipso facto, soft, weak, trivial, and unimportant because they do not make money.  Witness Republican zeal for the Keystone XL Pipeline which has the potential to poison a major water supply in our mid-west agricultural area. [It only creates 20,000 jobs. And those are the high paying jobs.]  President Obama has put off the final decision until 2013, but, yesterday Republicans passed a law attempting to force the President to act in the next 60 days.  As leverage, they attached it to the tax cut extension so important to the 99% of Americans who were able to survive 2011 on the $1000 the tax cut provides.  Democrats are fighting to get this tax cut for the middle-class while Republicans continue to refuse ending immediately the Bush tax cuts enjoyed by the TOP 1% who are so-called “job creators” who fail to create jobs. Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) says “they don’t exist.” This blogger does not understand the workings of a “Republican conscious.”

Did the child’s difficult breathing in the video give you pause?  Why is it that it falls as silent on the deaf ears of the Republican Party? Growing children and working adults need a healthy environment in which to flourish.  It is the federal government’s job to safeguard the environment for us, our children and their children.  The benefits of a healthy environment include profitable business which should be important to Republicans and the TOP 1%.  Why do they let anti-environment lobbyists into their offices?  Why do they meet them for lunch?  What business is transacted among them?  The hacking cough of the unseen child in the red carriage should echo in their ears until America is safe again for life and labor.
