Judge Richard Berman
– At a hearing Monday in Manhattan in which he ruled filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza must continue community service for four more years, U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said he considers D’Souza’s violation of federal campaign-finance laws to be evidence of a psychological problem and ordered further counseling.

D’Souza’s defense counsel Benjamin Brafman provided evidence to the court that the psychiatrist D’Souza was ordered to see found no indication of depression or reason for medication. In addition, the psychologist D’Souza subsequently consulted provided a written statement concluding there was no need to continue the consultation, because D’Souza was psychologically normal and well adjusted.
But Judge Berman, who was appointed by Bill Clinton, disagreed, effectively overruling the judgment of the two licensed psychological counselors the U.S. probation department had approved as part of D’Souza’s criminal sentence.
“I only insisted on psychological counseling as part of Mr. D’Souza’s sentence because I wanted to be helpful,” {Yeah OK, but what about Doug's Pysch Counseling} the judge explained. “I am requiring Mr. D’Souza to see a new psychological counselor and to continue the weekly psychological consultation not as part of his punishment or to be retributive.

D’Souza has become known for his two popular films critical of President Obama. “2016: Obama’s America” was released during the 2012 presidential campaign and “America: Imagine the World Without Her” came out in July 2014, ahead of the midterm elections.

“I’m not singling out Mr. D’Souza to pick on him,” Berman said at the hearing Monday. “A requirement for psychological counseling often comes up in my hearings in cases where I find it hard to understand why someone did what they did.” {You're full of bull shit - who are you kidding?}

WND reported that at the Sept. 23, 2014, sentencing hearing, Berman said he could not understand how someone of D’Souza’s intelligence, with credentials that include college president, could do something so stupid as to violate federal campaign contribution laws. D’Souza was at the pinnacle of his career, writing bestselling non-fiction books and producing popular feature films.
As WND reported, after pleading guilty to campaign-finance violations, D’Souza was sentenced in September to eight months in a work-release center, five years of probation, a $30,000 fine and community service. He pleaded guilty in May 2014 to arranging “straw donors” to contribute $10,000 to the failed 2012 U.S. Senate campaign of Wendy Long, a college friend.
On May 31, he was released from nightly detention at a work-release center in San Diego after eight months. During that time, in fulfillment of his community service requirement, he taught English once a week to Spanish-speaking applicants for American citizenship. Berman ruled Monday he must continue for another four years the community-service portion of his sentence.
In his eight months of nightly confinement, he found time to sign a contract with HarperCollins and begin writing a new book to follow his 2014 New York Times bestseller, “America.” He also started the process of financing his next feature film, scheduled for the 2016 presidential campaign. And he’s designed a sequel to his highly profitable 2014 feature film, “America: Imagine the World Without Her.”

‘I was a psychology major’
Berman explained at the hearing Monday that his social-work training combined with his psychology major has made him sensitive to psychological issues in the criminal cases he hears.
 {So, should UBCJA Carpenters undergo 'sensitivity training' when we disagree with the scheisters like McCarron, Walsh, Murphy etc.}

“You have to understand, I have a background in social work with a psychology major,” Berman explained. “I’m sensitive to mental health issues in the criminal cases I hear, and I do not want to end psychological counseling at this time in Mr. D’Souza’s case.” {Of course not as it would expose your own Agenda. Your Honor, Liberalism truly is a Mental Disorder you know & you have it real good; ya know what I'm saying?}
Brafman countered that it was not fair to require someone like D’Souza to continue psychological counseling as part of his sentence when the doctors D’Souza has seen so far believe he does not need to continue the psychological counseling.
“Applying your argument to white-collar crimes,” Brafman continued, “why wouldn’t all white-collar criminals need psychological counseling?”
Berman countered that 85 percent of all criminal defendants who appear before him argue they don’t need psychological counseling or drug therapy, among other rehabilitative interventions.
‘A colossal failure of introspection’
“What I’m reading in the psychological case notes is compatible with my own impressions,” Berman continued. “The psychological case notes indicate that while Mr. D’Souza is highly intelligent, he has remarkably little insight into his own motivations, that he is not introspective or insightful, but that he tends to see his own actions in an overly positive manner.  { EXACTLY JUDGE BERMY, AKIN TO YOUR IN CHAMBERS PAL DOUGLAS J. MCCARRON - RIGHT?}

“I consider the original crime in this case is an insight issue,” Berman continued. “That Mr. D’Souza committed this crime involves a colossal failure of insight and introspection. The case notes also say Mr. D’Souza has weaknesses in controlling his own impulses and that he is prone to anger in reaction to criticism.” {YOU FORGOT TO CALL HIM A BIG HATER & TAG HIM W/ MORE B.S.  LIBERAL LABEL's SIMPLY BECAUSE HE STANDS IN DIRECT OPPOSITION TO THE LIB's PHONY AGENDA TO CONTINUE REGISTERING ILLEGAL ALIENS TO VOTE IN FEDERAL & PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS}

The judge noted the psychologists “chart indicates Mr. D’Souza tends to deny problems, that he lacks insight into his own behavior, that he is arrogant and intolerant of the feelings of others, while projecting an overly positive image of himself.”
 You just described yourself & Doug McCarron your honor....Guilty Conscience?}

“Therefore, I am ordering Mr. D’Souza to continue psychological counseling with another therapist,” said Berman.
“Therapy is more of an art than a science, and a new therapist may be what is needed in this case,” he said.
Berman ruled the sentencing requirement for weekly psychological counseling would be re-examined at the next sentencing review hearing, scheduled for Oct. 8 at 11:30 a.m. in his Manhattan courtroom.
Five years of teaching English required {Can you say Election Fraud Judge Bermy?}
As WND reported Monday, Berman ruled that D’Souza’s sentence requiring him to spend eight hours per week teaching English to Spanish-speaking students applying for U.S. citizenship was meant to be coterminous with his “supervised release,” or parole.

“I’m certain I would never have imposed a community service requirement to end with the community detention,” Berman said, rejecting an argument Brafman made that the original sentencing order was ambiguous. {Try arbitrary, capricious & a willful violation of Federal Election laws & known Sentencing Guidelines}
Berman also rejected Brafman’s argument that a five-year community service requirement to teach English to Spanish-speakers was onerous, taking into account that D’Souza had no prior criminal record and that his crime, while a felony, was committed at a particularly stressful time of his life, while he was in the midst of a difficult divorce settlement.
In previous court appearances, Brafman had argued D’Souza’s crime, while admittedly a felony under federal law, was reflective more of an oversight involving a relatively small sum of money, not indicative of serious criminal malicious intent.

‘A real sentence in every respect’
D’Souza’s attorney, Brafman, argued: “With Mr. D’Souza required to spend one day every week in community service, this sentence is a real impediment to pursuing full-time employment.”
Berman countered: “I intended this to be a real sentence in every respect. Mr. D’Souza pleaded guilty to a felony, and I believe at the time the initial sentence was announced, Mr. D’Souza was relieved he was not facing incarceration.” {Like, did you have the Deranged Loner & Commie go see Dr, Phil & then give a UBC style donation to one of your Pysch Clinincs to avoid any guilty verdicts in the Consent Decree?}
Also at issue was D’Souza’s request to travel internationally to visit his 80-year-old mother in India and to visit his daughter at school in London.
Berman ruled that permission to travel internationally would be reconsidered at the Oct. 8 hearing, but D’Souza would be allowed to purchase his air tickets now, with the court assuming the Oct. 8 hearing will find him in full compliance with all aspects of his sentencing requirements.
While D’Souza is under no domestic travel restrictions, he must request court approval to travel internationally, and he is allowed to pick up his passport only 24 hours prior to departure. His passport must be surrendered to federal authorities 24 hours after the completion of his return flight.
Also at issue in the Oct. 8 hearing will be proof D’Souza has completed 416 hours teaching English by the end of September, as required under the mandate that he devote eight hours a week to it. {THIS IS COMPLETE & UTTER HORSE SHIT & ANY ONE WITH HALF AN OUNCE OF BRAINS COULD FIGURE IT OUT JUDGE BERMY. ARE YOU ON THE POT ORIS IT K2 etc.?}

D’Souza is behind schedule because of difficulties finding an appropriate venue in San Diego.
He told WND in an interview last month that he has enjoyed teaching the English classes.
“I have become very attached to my students,” he said. “There are around 100 of them, in classes ranging from beginner to intermediate to advanced.”
He said many of them have now seen his film, “America,” which he gave to them as a Christmas present.
“They have gotten to know me and my situation,” he said. “And they are now huge fans. If you ran Obama against me with this group, I doubt he would get a single vote.”

**   All sitting United States Federal District Court judges are guilty; ahh crap - I mean innocent until proven guilty in a competent court of law; or are they Judge Judy, I mean Judge Wapner; ahh sh-it, I mean Judge Berman?

**   Seems time for a grand jury investigation into the Judges potential violation of Federal Election laws, a competency hearing & of course, the venerable pysch eval prior to incarcerating him. Everyone knows illegal aliens have exactly zero right to vote in any election let alone a Presidential one, yet Judge Bermy's sentence is part & parcel to the Lib's view of the U.S. Constitution as toilet paper & the new Global World Order wherein America is wholly owned & operated by the ruling class of alleged intellectual elitists who continue to falsely believe that they know more than the rest of us & to hell with our National Sovereignty, the Constitution & the middle class via impartation of the TPA/TPP and via targeting any political opponents who stand up or speak against them including producing documentaries or films which highlight their illegal actions - right Bermy?

**   Should I Shelter in Place until the paddy wagon arrives? Can I teach them Latin or Gaelic instead of English?

**   This is a no brainer for immediate Appellate review & scrutiny by the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary.

Time to retire Judge Berman - before the about taking a proverbial shit all over the United States Constitution and ignoring your sworn duties; but, but to seriously inject your Dr. Phil (I was a Pysch. Major) antics into a case like this wherein there are no legitimate or defendable causes of action, no prima-facie case whatsoever and the entire processing & persecution of this poor bastard was done for purely political reasons via crapping all over his Free Speech & First Amendment rights; well then Judge Berman, you gotta be smoking some serious high quality ganja to come up with this kind of sentence.

Past this, the real abortion of justice is his brain dead attorneys failure to immediately appeal such a ridiculous sentence via ordering him to teach English to Criminal Aliens for 5-years. The only one insane here is you. This is the exact type of case which lends to cause for immediate removal from the bench as your impartiality is gone, absolutely gone.

Using this logic Judge Bermy, I want you to force Bank of America to install Gaelic on every ATM nationwide & every other bank too. See how far you'd get with that type ruling - their attorneys would eat your for lunch.
