One man's comments on aspects of the book 'Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell' by @milliganreports, because I think it's not all that.

First, for a substantial review of the book, read Julia Yost. firstthings.com/web-exclusives…
She calls it a "semi-literate regurgitation of police theories". Elsewhere I've seen it described as "airport trash". I agree with both of these comments.

Milligan often uses the phrase "Pell defender" on Twitter.
I think Pell should have been found not guilty based on what we know of the evidence in this case: in that I'm defending the integrity of the Victorian justice system. I think Pell should have had a judge-only trial.

Here’s something I missed on my first pass of #Pell judgment: Defence tried to argue Court of Appeal should not see video of J’s evidence (that is, what jury saw). I think that’s extraordinarily telling: The defence didn’t want them to see what jury had: that he was believable.
And of course, this came from a pricey defence team whose client exercised his (legal) right not to give evidence at trial.
So yes, jury’s instructed not to read anything into him remaining schtum while his counsel tries to demolish witness who alleges was raped as a child. But in light of that decision, attempt to deprive their Honours of seeing how complainant presented to jury is Quite. Something.

🚨 New working paper on financial aid for college! 🚨

Link:
rand.org/pubs/working_p…

A quick summary in this #thread...
This paper looks at two-year college students who have the greatest financial need, and finds that a grant of around $1,000 increased rates of degree completion over the following three years by about 1-2 percentage points, from a baseline of 19% completion.
The research design is a regression discontinuity using a cutoff in the date of filing the FAFSA. Wisconsin allocates aid first-come first-served among financially eligible applicants. More details on this and supplementary strategies, in the paper.

1/ This is a MEGATHREAD. 👇🏻

That's not a Jamaican Doom Metal band name. It's a list of LNP issues & scandals for:

💥LNP VOTERS REVIEW💥

I’d like to present evidence to show they’re voting against their interests.

Please Distribute & RT. #auspol #ausvotes19
2/ If you hate your internet, it’s entirely LNP fault. The Labor NBN fibre to the premise model was world class. It was hobbled by Turnbull to serve Rupert Murdoch. The lost productivity / opportunity cost for Australia is likely TRILLIONS. #NBNfail innovationaus.com/2018/02/NBNs-a…
3/ If you are a woman LNP voter - Why? What the heck? LNP have a huge issue with women. Their best PM candidate was not considered for the role and that’s why Julie Bishop quit, among many others. Add your examples in comments. #auspol #ausvotes19 theguardian.com/australia-news…

Karen Monument: "The impact of child sexual abuse inflicted by members of the Catholic Church began reverberating in my family home almost 40 years ago and culminated in the loss of a brother to suicide just over 10 years ago"

Karen Monument: "The decision to come forward with allegations against George Pell, almost four years ago, set my brother, myself and my family on a journey that has had equally dark times and inflicted stress that I did not, at times, think we would survive"

George Pell is not just a pedophile. He is a Luciferian who ritually abused multiple children. He was in the audience during the Luciferian ritual #FionaBarnett attended at St Mary’s Cathedral when she was 14 years old.

Australia's Child Abuse Royal Commission were supplied with multiple witness accounts of George Pell’s Luciferian ritual crimes against children. The Royal Commission poorly cross-examined George Pell regarding his cover-up of priests raping children in Victoria.

My Dear Australians, Thank you for your kind messages of Support.

141. A la hora del montoneo fashionista jashtaguero, resulta que todos son fulanita o fulanito; hasta el perro son. Pero cuando toca revisar el nivel de responsabilidad personal en el crimen de la #PederastiaEclesiástica, no hay quien se apunte con el #TodosSomosCómplices
143. #Bergoglio da consejos de qué hacer con un hijo homosexual; sin embargo este "Padre espiritual" está atiborrado de hijos espirituales homosexuales -curas-, a los que les solapa sus abusos en contra de seminaristas:
