When I was called to jury duty many years ago, I told the judge that I work with law-enforcement and would be using my psychic abilities to make a determination. Of course this did not sit well with the judge who turned out to be one of my clients when he was a lawyer. The courtroom laughed when he recognized me. I am forever barred from jury duty.
On the matter of the State of South Carolina v. Richard Alexander Murdaugh ... Thursday, after only three hours of deliberation the verdict was read ... Guilty of two counts of murder and two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime - sentenced to life imprisonment.
I never blogged about - nor followed the details of - this high profile case. I had never heard of Alex Murdaugh before the trial. After all the sensationalism I decided I would see what this was about - took one look at him - read his energies - knew he was a mentally unstable drug addict - guilty as charged.
As I later discovered Murdaugh was a powerful South Carolina lawyer found guilty of murdering his wife and son to distract from his multi-million dollar financial crimes. The wealthy scion of a once powerful legal dynasty admitted he's a drug addict and thief who allegedly swindled his law firm and clients out of nearly $9 million. It takes us to ... can somebody from a rich and powerful family get away with murder? Apparently not in this case.
It also makes you look at powerful people like Donald Trump who think they can get away with anything. It makes you wonder when he will be indicted on any number of crimes - the most serious being - conspiracy to overthrow the government. And yet he proceeds on - cocky as ever - to run for president again.
We segue to another man named Murdoch - Rupert Murdoch. Monday a filing was made in the Dominion Voting Systems' $1.6 billion lawsuit against FOX the right-wing talk channel offering startling revelations. It included the fact that Fox Corporation chair Rupert Murdoch admitted in a deposition that some of his top anchors were pushing election lies to Fox audiences - emails between them proving they always knew Trump lost the 2020 election. This was a plot between Trump and Murdoch.
Plots and plans ... power and money. Just as the people of South Carolina wanted to see Alex Murdauch taken down so too do many Americans want to see the downfall of the Trump Dynasty as the quest to take down Trump and his cronies continues. Both men are so blinded by power and money they could easily destroy democracy but as they are both elderly I don't think they really care.
'Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive' is a quote from Sir Walter Scott's poem Marmion published in 1808. It means that when you act dishonestly you are initiating problems, setting off a domino structure of complications, which will eventually get out of control.
It is the stuff that soap operas are made of and certainly describes the life and times of Alex Murdaugh, Rupert Murdoch, and Donald Trump. It's been over 200 years since Sir Walter Scott wrote those lines and yet it still holds firm today in the craziness we consider the Days of our Lives.
