Ahsoka Tano is a reminder that you can’t save everyone. Love alone does not conquer everything, and to quote someone from my chosen family, love should do no harm.

This essay contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Clone Wars

By Rebecca Wei Hsieh

I admit, I had a meltdown and a half after watching the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. There’s Order 66, Anakin’s Fall to the Dark Side, and all the fear that makes me want to return to this godforsaken franchise. But for many fans, Ahsoka’s return remains the culmination of the series’ revival. While the sight of Rex defying his inhibitor chip tore my heart out, it was Ahsoka’s last departure that broke me. I didn’t just mourn, however; I was very proud of her as a survivor.

Ahsoka initially joins the Jedi as a youth, and to quote 5.6, she and her colleagues are quick to think that the Order is “their real family”. The family dynamic is perhaps most evident between Ahsoka and Anakin, whom she regards as the older brother. As a result, Ahsoka is understandably devastated when she is unceremoniously charged with terrorism without her family support. The only person who shows her a minimum of faith is Anakin.

Of course, Ahsoka is by no means the only convincing portrayal of familial alienation, especially between carers and children. The chaotic family dynamics have played a central role in the stories we tell for centuries. But while I am referring to characters like Zuko, for example, only Ahsoka’s arc has resonated with me in a way that shakes me to the core.

After Anakin clears Ahsoka’s name, the Jedi Order greets her back with open arms, but she says no. She says no to a family that she wants back, one that she has want return, but cannot afford to.

Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker

Let me be clear: it is never easy to leave an abusive or toxic situation. Staying is never a sign of weakness. This shit is complicated and I’m not going to be part of fake, unhealthy comparisons. But there is a distinct taste of guilt in leaving loved ones behind who love you because they are no longer safe for you.

From childhood we are taught that love conquers everything, that love is enough to fix everything. Check out Disney, check out fairy tales, check out every other story where families ride every wave together, carried by their love. After all, family should mean that no one is left behind. But that is not always the reality of the family.

Anakin is Ahsoka’s pillar in the order and he clearly reciprocates her affection. So what does he do when she leaves? He stumbles over her and keeps centering himself. His own trauma doesn’t give him a free pass to ignore her feelings, especially when he’s her mentor. She can’t go, he says, because it’s the Jedi Order [her] Life’. He whips the classic “What about me?” From what implies that Ahsoka is selfish for leaving the Order, that her decision is somehow a personal insult to him. He admits that he understands the desire to leave the Jedi, but still expects Ahsoka to stay for him, for her family, because ultimately this family is her life.

But the thing is, Ahsoka White The Order is her whole world, and that’s why she has to leave everything she has ever known. When the family has let them down in such a colossal way, no matter how much love there is, leaving becomes less a choice than a necessity. Anakin is so much in one unfinished sceneBut even then, his conclusion is that Ahsoka is a “great disappointment” because she does not consider herself to be in danger for her family.

RECOMMENDED: Committing harm is not the same as being abusive

Ahsoka knows all of this, but that doesn’t stop the guilt of her survivors from doing so long before Order 66 kicks in. If you’ve been taught all your life that family is everything, leaving feels like a moral failure. You don’t just go, you leave, and what kind of selfish, heartless monster is walking away from a loved one who needs them? Who says no when the most important person in their life asks them to stay?

However, the truth is that leaving the people who left you in the first place is impossible. Sure, the Order technically expands an olive branch, as does Anakin, but that show of goodwill is undermined by the cost involved: them. Ahsoka is the one left behind; She was merely framed as the bad guy performing the physical act of walking away.

It is important to remember that the playing field is not the same for Ahsoka, similar to many caretaker-child relationships. She is a female Togruta in a universe that we know is prejudiced against both men and humans. She’s seventeen by the end of season five, still one Child (Don’t even get me started with a whole child soldier situation.). She relied on this family to survive her entire life, a family that abruptly pulls the carpet out from under her feet only to light them up with some bullshit where the power works in mysterious ways. The power dynamic will be forever distorted as long as one party depends on the other for basic survival.

So obviously a damn one child, shouldn’t be responsible for being the “bigger person”, staying and “saving” loved ones at your own expense.

What strikes me most about Ahsoka’s entire story is how Well she remains so. Though traumatized and reluctant to forge close ties in the EU Ahsoka Roman, she still refuses to turn her back on people who need her. Ahsoka continues to play her role in liberating the galaxy, fighting the Empire in every possible way.

Despite the difficulties of forging a new life on her own, she returns to Season 7 as her own person. Still a child, certainly, but much more mature and steadfast in her faith. We see them continue to grow Star Wars rebelswhere, as a 31-year-old, she fights for a cause that she could easily ignore if she wanted to. Leaving her toxic family does not break her or turn her into a cold hearted woman with no moral compass. Not to romanticize trauma, but if anything, her resilience to her ordeal has made her kinder and more empathetic.

RECOMMENDED: Bojack Horseman gave Hollyhock the perfect finish

I don’t want to delve into my tragic origin story, but what haunts me the most is the fear that if I am not already I will become an abuser myself. It is cruel and abusive that I give up people who still love me.

But Ahsoka Tano reminds us that you cannot save everyone. Love alone does not conquer everything, and to quote someone from my chosen family, love should do no harm. Neither Ahsoka nor I are to blame for not returning to the open arms that are waiting for us, not when they are arms lined with teeth and claws.

We are not bad people when we love each other first in order to survive. Nobody is.

Porter Wright attorneys withdraw from Trump Election Lawsuit https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/porter-wright-attorneys-withdraw-from-trump-election-lawsuit/ Mon, 24 May 2021 00:22:58 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/porter-wright-attorneys-withdraw-from-trump-election-lawsuit/

For the second time in a week a major law firm has left its client president Donald Trumps moribund political campaign just before they were supposed to go to court defending the electoral renanigans’ wild allegations they had put on paper.

Late thursday lawyers Ronald Hicks and Carolyn McGee withdrew its white shoe company Porter Wright from a lawsuit that sought to invalidate around 6.5 million votes in Pennsylvania after voters there voted for the elected president Joe Bidenand got him over the 270-voter threshold for the first time. Although Biden has since contributed to his victory, Trump’s campaign has chosen to play in virtual courtrooms across the country.

Major law firms helping the Lame Duck president in this endeavor have found that there is a cost in representing the outgoing President Trump’s recent crusades to throw out the election results that made him a one-year-old accused president. The New York Times had already reported That one attorney for Porter Wright called it quits. The Times also reported that another large firm, Jones Day, had dealt with disagreements among its partners who were uncomfortable taking part in a legal offensive that they feared would undermine electoral integrity in the United States.

State and local authorities across the country believe Trump’s efforts can have this effect, too. Pennsylvania called the lawsuit Porter Wright filed “radical, anti-democratic, and exaggerated”. Seven Keystone State Countes called it a “transparent and deliberate attack on our electoral system”. The National Democratic Committee stated flatly: “That is not how democracy works.”

Porter Wright cut ties with the Trump campaign with no explanation other than vaguely claiming that his withdrawal “best serves” the client’s interests. The only lawyer currently left is Linda A. Kerns, a Philadelphia-based divorce attorney local to the City of Brotherly Love NPR station described as a “dog lover, conservative media commentator and volunteer helper for the city’s beleaguered GOP”.

Kerns will face an armada of legal power, including whiteshoe firm Perkins Coie, billionaire multinational Dentons, and Kirkland & Ellis, named the world’s largest law firm by revenue. Attorney General Bill Barr worked earlier at Kirkland & Ellis.

Earlier this week, Arizona’s largest law firm has Snell & Wilmer disarmed his legal firepower from Trump’s cavalry after his lawsuit made national headlines for bringing the discredited “Sharpiegate” conspiracy to court and then renaming it. The Phoenix-based company was founded in 1938 and tacitly pulled out of the case on Tuesday.

A media representative from the company’s Phoenix office spoke out ahead of a Thursday hearing at the a Richter refused put in a pile of hundreds of shady affidavits as evidence.

Trump’s remaining attorneys admitted that users had submitted numerous false affidavits on an online form. The lawyers did not claim to have certified any of the complaints. They confirmed that humans existed. A CAPTCHA culled bots, and the legal team scrutinized the complainants at their home: that was the scope of their investigation. As for the statements that you couldn’t disprove? The Trump campaign attorney Kory Langhofer tried unsuccessfully to bring them their day in court. He even admitted this once during the hour-long hearing He had called a business partner as a witness.

At the hearing, Langhofer withdrew from the unsubstantiated conspiracy theory of his complaint that campaign workers were giving markers to Trump supporters – knowing that those markers would bleed through the ballot papers and the ballot papers would not be counted, and anything to help Joe Biden Arizona to win. The hypothesis has been widely derided as “Sharpiegate” – the same name given to the censorship scandal that surfaced when Trump lied about Hurricane Dorian’s trajectory by roughly scribbling on a map to match government scientist projections with his free-range reefs.

In Pennsylvania, Arizona and elsewhere, Trump and his loyalists cited the specter of mass voter fraud – a phenomenon that international experts in the United States fail to report – as a reason to question their emphatic electoral defeat.

Variations on the word “fraud” appear 33 times in the Pennsylvania Middle District lawsuit, mostly related to infrequent law enforcement activities related to other elections. The only suspected electoral fraud cases cited in the complaint occurred in two Keystone counties where Trump was double-digitized: fayette and alfalfa, but even those alleged cases are murky. The investigations they initiated have not resulted in any criminal activity.

Langhofer admitted on Thursday that he didn’t even claim fraud.

“This is not a case of fraud,” said Langhofer and instead designed the lawsuit as an attempt to uncover voting irregularities. “It’s not a case where the elections are stolen.”

Another Attorney took a similar shot in one case in Pennsylvania.

Erin Molan calls Gladys Berejiklian late at night https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/erin-molan-calls-gladys-berejiklian-late-at-night/ Mon, 24 May 2021 00:22:58 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/erin-molan-calls-gladys-berejiklian-late-at-night/

Erin Molan has revealed that she has a self-imposed alcohol ban but has had a couple of indiscretions, including a late-night phone call to Gladys Berejiklian.

Molan interviewed the NSW Premier on the Hughesy, Ed & Erin Breakfast Show on 2Day FM on Monday and confessed to Berejiklian.

IMPRESSIVE: Cam Smith linked up with Maroon’s appearance after Bennett’s bombshell

“TRAUMATIC”: Mitchell Pearce breaks down over text messaging scandal

The popular NRL host said she banned drinking in January but got out of hand during a girls night out with fellow Channel Nine presenters Belinda Russell and Lizzie Pearl.

“I actually stopped drinking for January, but I had a couple of indiscretions,” she said.

“It could have been 11pm, possibly midnight or 1am, I’m not entirely sure.

“We’ve talked and we clearly need to get lives, but we talked about how well you (Berejiklian) handled the pandemic and how we all look up to you.

“Then I said to the girls, Gladys and I are basically best friends. Should I give her a call and I’ll tell her how we’re all feeling.”

Unfortunately, the NSW Premier didn’t answer for Molan.

“So the prime minister hasn’t answered, nor has she returned my calls since,” Molan said jokingly.

“I just wanted to check the status of our friendship with Gladys.”

The New South Wales Prime Minister admitted that Molan’s call must have been an accident.

“Can I be honest, I had a missed call after midnight and you know what I was thinking, Erin? I thought you’d choose me in your pocket, ”she said.

“I thought I had your text returned Erin, if I hadn’t I apologize.

“In my head, I wasn’t worried.”

Berejiklian indicates the possibility of a vaccination certificate

Berejiklian had her hands full during the COVID-19 crisis and received high praise for how she ran the state.

On Monday the Prime Minister has the option of Except those who oppose the COVID-19 vaccine government-run buildings, as well as allowing private venues to take similar action.

“Airlines have already stated that if you are not vaccinated you cannot travel overseas and I think that will be an incentive for a lot of people,” she said.

“But we will also consider allowing venues … to make their own rules if they have a business or operate a workplace that they think is COVID-safe.”

The comments came after the state did not register any new locally acquired daily cases of coronavirus infection on Monday.

However, a decline to fewer than 9,000 tests in the 24 hours to 8 p.m. on Sunday was worrying as Ms. Berejiklian had previously indicated the possibility of easing restrictions.

The strange new twist in the case of 4-year-old Cash Gernon

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos by the Dallas County Police DepartmentDALLAS – After the kidnapping and murder of 4-year-old Cash Gernon in Dallas last week, neighbor Jose Alvarado checked his surveillance cameras for footage that could help investigators. What he found The video is from 10 weeks before little Cash was left dead from stab wounds on the floor.

But it shows the teen accused of kidnapping him, Darriynn Brown, walking down the street, opening Alvarado’s back gate and looking inside before quickly walking away. “It’s really scary,” Alvarado told The Daily Beast. “I have two kids, a girl and a boy, and they play basketball in the backyard.” Alvarado’s house shares a back alley with the home of Monica Sherrod, 35, who looked after Cash and his twin Carter.

She said she was with the twins’ father, Trevor Gernon, a 31-year-old construction worker, until he reportedly left town in March when a court ordered him to go to rehab for the next two months – without the knowledge of her mother, Melinda Seagroves, who lives in Houston. Early on the morning of May 15, a young man snuck into the twins’ bedroom, got some sleeping money from the toddler bed he shared with Carter, and went out – a terrifying scene captured by a baby monitor in grainy black and white.

Footage obtained from the Daily Mail shows the intruder returning about two hours later and hovering over the bed where Carter slept before leaving abruptly as if scared by something. By then, Cash was already dead. Antainain Square, a Dallas teacher who lives in the area, was out on her morning walk around 6:45 am when she saw tufts of hair on the floor. The thought belonged to a dog. “I spoke to my mother on the phone.” Square told The Daily Beast. “As I got closer, I could see an arm and a foot and I just started crying and said, ‘Mom, I think I’m coming on a body. ‘And I started:’ Mom, it’s a kid! It is a child! ‘And the baby had blood all over her face. At that point, my mom told me to hang up with her and call 911 right away …

The baby had ants on its feet. So I knew pretty well that he was gone. “4 year old Slain’s father in Dallas apologizes for leaving KidsSquare. She remembers that she was “in denial” and hoped that Cash was actually just asleep, even though he was obviously dead. “I was just trying to put all kinds of stories together. I had no way of believing anyone would do this to a child, “she said, adding that she stayed with Cash’s body until the police and paramedics arrived so no one would drive over him.”

A couple who left out of their garage I had to stop her to let her know this baby was down, ”Square said. More than three hours later, Sherrod reported that Cash was missing. “I got up late the day he went missing and thought it was weird,” Sherrod later told the Daily Mail. “I said, ‘It’s already ten o’clock, guys.’ So I thought Cash was still in bed. ”Cash Gernon was kidnapped from his bed on May 15. Handout Later that day, police arrested 18-year-old Brown, who lives with his parents about half a mile from the spot , on Cash’s body was found on charges of kidnapping and burglary, but not murder, because police said they were awaiting forensic tests, and instead of bailing him for $ 1.5 million, Brown couldn’t for comment and has no lawyer on court records. His mother, Mimi, has told reporters she believes her son is being framed. Live girls online can be found easily.

A jumble of relationships, criminal records, and an unknown motive hangs over the case. Sherrod, who Mom of several children, has a criminal record that includes assault and DWI.Trevor Gernon, who has an extensive rap sheet, appears to have disappeared; a phone number listed under his name r was disconnected. Darriynn Brown is reportedly a friend of one of Sherrod’s children and has been seen playing with children in Sherrod’s care. Sherrod first characterized any relationship she or her children had with Brown, who attended the same high school as at least one of the child boys who live in her home, as minimal. She later told a reporter that Brown had visited her house two days before Cash’s murder but was not shopping at the time. According to several neighbors, Brown was definitely not a stranger to the neighborhood.

One told The Daily Beast that the teenager regularly played soccer and basketball with some of the children who lived with Sherrod. Others said they saw Brown on their ring surveillance cameras hanging around the area. Little information is known about Seagroves, who now has custody of Carter. Seagroves didn’t respond to multiple interview requests, but her mother, Connie Ward, told The Daily Beast this week, “We’re not ready to make any statement. My family is broken.

It was a nightmare to hear and watch the news about our baby and tell stories that are wrong. “Seagroves does not appear to have had a violation of the law, but court records show that both Sherrod and Gernon have records containing assault arrests in 2013, Sherrod pleaded guilty to assaulting her mother, Lezlee Pinkerton. According to an affidavit signed by Officer Glenn Burkheimer-Lubeck of the Harris County Constable’s Office, Sherrod deliberately hit Pinkerton with his hand in the head and chest and pulled her to the ground, then, “Cause[d] Assault “to Pinkerton” by stamping [Pinkerton’s] Toes with your feet. “” The complainant reports that she believes her toes are broken, “the affidavit said. Sherrod was sentenced to two years of community supervision, participation in a domestic violence treatment program, a $ 100 donation to a family violence center, and a $ 200 fine.

In 2018, Gernon was arrested by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office for attacking his father, Roger Gernon, during a dispute over a credit card bill, Texas court records show. When Roger Gernon told his son he was going to call the police, Trevor took the phone away, bled his father’s arm with his fingernails, and poked him in the chest with his elbow. He was charged with a misdemeanor and disrupted an 911 call, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 68 days in prison. In addition to attacking family members, both Sherrod and Gernon have histories of theft, fraud, and drug possession. Sherrod’s last arrest was for DWI;

She has also pleaded guilty to being charged with misdemeanor charges of identity fraud, meth possession, driver’s license, and theft. Geron’s most recent arrest was for possession of narcotics in 2020. He had previously been charged with possession of methamphetamine in 2016 in a number of other crimes. Neal Flanagan, who is co-owner of an anti-corrosion company, told The Daily Beast that he met Gernon in high school and reconnected in 2016. He gave Gernon some work because he was having problems. Then it went sideways. “My ex-wife and I were married at the time,” Flanagan said. “We had problems. She broke up with me in January 2017. Then she and Trevor started seeing each other. “I never saw him after that,” Flanagan said. “

A few years later, he wrote to me on Facebook. Like, ‘hey buddy. How you been?’ As if nothing ever happened. “When he was sober, Gernon was’ as good as anyone could want,” said Neal’s father, Johnny Flanagan. But he added that he wasn’t surprised that Gernon took off without his boys. ” He’s one of those guys that way the way the wind is blowing, you know, and he’s going to do good for several months and then do bad for several months, and you know, just get up and go, ” said Flanagan. Following his drug abuse charge last November, he failed to appear for a March 29, 2021 hearing, forfeiting a $ 10,000 bond payment.

There is now an open arrest warrant against him. His sister posted a YouTube video that recorded an apology from him. In it, he says he left town looking for work and didn’t want to disturb the boys’ routine, so he left them behind. “I paid the ultimate and most painful price for my poor judgment and I have to live with this devastation every day,” he said. “I will never forgive myself. If I could, I would go back and do things differently. This is a nightmare that won’t go away if I open my eyes in the morning. We just don’t understand how this can happen to such a bright and cheerful child. “None of the various defense attorneys who have represented Sherrod or Gernon in court have agreed to speak on the basis of attorney privilege.

Cash’s death raised many questions for those responsible for it. But in the neighborhood he’s spent his final months in, the overarching mystery is why anyone should kill a defenseless child and leave it on the street like trash. Steven Monacelli The solid part of the working class Mountain Creek in Dallas is a quiet place bounded on one side by the 600 acre Cedar Ridge Conservation Area. The houses are in fair condition and the courtyards are clean. On the street where Cash’s body was found, locals stopped at a shrine to leave toys, flowers and other memorabilia. The woman who found Cash’s body has been struggling with her emotions since that morning. “It was difficult. It was really difficult, “Square told The Daily Beast.” I’m 3 years old and as we look at and process this, I learn that I have little triggers. If I see a little boy, 4, 3, 5, I’ll cry. It’s just a trigger for me.

My own daughter is like a trigger. Sometimes she says something and I cry. “Although I didn’t know the baby, he was simply robbed of his life. It was really hard. It was really hard to just process this. And no matter how hard you try to keep going, you can’t miss what you saw. “Rohrlich reported from New York and Monacelli from Dallas.

The sex education star is set to shake up Bridgerton in a steamy new series https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/the-sex-education-star-is-set-to-shake-up-bridgerton-in-a-steamy-new-series/ Mon, 24 May 2021 00:22:58 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/the-sex-education-star-is-set-to-shake-up-bridgerton-in-a-steamy-new-series/

One minute she controls her desires in the teen television drama Sex Education and the next in Bridgerton.

Yes, it’s been a hectic couple of years for Simone Ashley, 25.

And it only gets busier when the praise that comes their way is anything one could ask for.

Simone plays Kate Sharma, a woman who Duke Anthony tries to steal from the arms of his theft intended for the second season of Bridgerton Netflix Hit by 83 million worldwide.



Her character will target Duke Anthony, played by Jonathan Bailey

She is the first South Asian actress in the drama, and Simone admits that her career has shocked her traditional Indian family – and that her parents find it “scary and troubling”.

Simone has come a long way since convincing her parents to let her go to a performing arts school. Before sex education, she had small roles in Broadchurch and Doctors on television.

But her teachers at Redroofs School for the Performing Arts in Berkshire never had a doubt that Simone would become a big star.

They recognized their “burning passion” and their determined determination to be successful.

Headmistress Samantha Keston says it was the same inner fire as that of another old girl – Oscar winner Kate Winslet.

Samantha says, “Students who really break into the big time have this absolute burning passion so often.

“They just don’t want to do anything else – that’s their life.

“Simone is certainly not our first. Kate Winslet was with us for seven years and she was another extraordinary story.

“Both Kate and Simone had the exact same work ethic and blinking vision. That’s all they wanted to do. They were both very smart girls who turned into very smart women. “

Simone, who has a 29-year-old brother Sean, said in a recent interview that she grew up in a “household full of Indian academics” with “incredibly protective” parents.

She told the Veylex website, “Sometimes I found it quite suffocating. I wanted to escape and do things my own way. In that sense, I’ve always been a little rebellious.

“I am incredibly privileged to be part of a generation where young women from around the world have more opportunities than ever before, where we are less stereotypical and where walls are slowly being torn down. This can be difficult for my parents to understand at times, but I am just trying to understand them and reassure them that I will be fine. “

Simone was raised in Camberley, Surrey, by mother Latha, 59, and father Gunasekharan, 63. They moved to Beaconsfield, Bucks, to be near Redroofs. Director Samantha says about the meeting with Simone and her parents: “Mom and Dad were very concerned that we were only offering a one-way street into a narrow theater. You asked many questions about what else our school could prepare Simone for. “

But Simone was so driven that her parents didn’t have to worry. After leaving Redroofs at the age of 18, she won a place in a musical theater course at the prestigious ArtsEd Drama School in Chiswick, west London, where Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber is President.

Simone changed her last name to Ashley to open up more mainstream roles.

However, her South Asian heritage helped take on the role of Bridgerton. The second series is based on Julia Quinn’s second book, The Viscount Who Loved Me, and Simone’s character is described as fair-skinned.

But the television producers mixed up the characters’ heritage. It led to a wonderfully diverse cast that is not precise enough, but is very well received by the fans.
