Holy crap, Michael is taking after Boob in the eyebrow department!

Second of all, it looks like he is at a golf course. There are golf bags in the back. But I'm not understanding what exactly he got to eat, it doesn't seem like much. 

They're at Top Golf. Famous for the donuts.

I forgot his birthday was today. My birthday is four days after his and four days before Anna's. 😁

What's with the syringes? Are they "flavor injectors " for whatever the food balls are? It looks like a Duggar attempt of a half assed pandemic themed party. 

 

But Happy Birthday to Michael. I feel really bad for the kids having to live in Josh's shit storms.

Yes, they're jelly injectors for the donuts. 

Would they allow Smuggar to be there?

There’s a good probability of other children being there, so that is a big no for Smuggar.

That's what I figured. Even though Michael has no agemate uncles, he must have some friends, right? Eh, probably not. 😥 But yeah, kids in the other bays would still violate the court order.

I hate to even think about it, but I'll bet any "sexy-time" between those two lasts less than a minute.

Unfortunately, I suspect that with his tastes seeming to have strayed more and more to extremes of dominance and depravity, it may mean far longer and more unpleasant sessions before he gets there.

Never underestimate the Cult's ability for self delusion.  Josh was framed.  Josh is a godly man.  There will be no stank on the M kids because the fundys are too afraid to call a spade a spade, and to admit they have plenty of them in their own houses.  That's how abuse flourishes in these groups.

That's what I'm thinking the Duggar stock has gone down. Anna may be too worn out to force Michael to marry and I think Josh has always been checked out of the Dad role. JB doesn't have the hold on the family he used too. Jinger moved away and wears pants, Jill's gone her own way. Jessa's kids will probably be the prized grandkids but even so, JB and M don't seem to be into the grandkids much, at least not yet imo. JB's getting older and still has his own to attempt to marry off. Without TLC and with scrutiny from Josh... I see the Duggars being diminished in the cult. Wasn't there rumors the last Duggar wedding was rushed to get it done before Josh was charged? That says to me there will be judgement in their group and JB is already worried it'll effect the rest of the families standing. Josh has done testimonials of his past sins to church elders with had nothing to do with the law, so his behavior is known, I don't think 'Josh is being set up' is going to be easy to sell to anyone who already knew his previous confessions.  Any of the other kids would be a different story. 

 

Anna and Josh tried their hardest to be JB and M complete with "picking a letter" (as Anna once declared they had to do.) But they're the ones the media won't touch with a ten foot pole, unless it's Anna breaking free.

Wasn't there a break up?  One of the brothers was engaged or courting some out of state girl and she broke up with him.

I wonder if her family got wind of what was going to happen and they said goodbye.

Which brother? A Duggar brother or a Keller brother?

The only Duggar brother we know had a break up was Josiah but that was after the first set of scandals.

I think they want to marry off the girls at 18 (got to start birthing them babies!), but haven't most of the boys made it into their 20's?  Heck, if they are following Gothard's rules, aren't they supposed to be able to support a family before they wed?  (And I don't think an allowance or junk job from JB was quite what Gothard had in mind.)

I feel bad for the M & Ms, because of who their dad is and what their dad has done. As far as marriage, having a sex offender for a FIL is a hard choice even in the mainstream world and Josh, whether found guilty or not of these latest crimes, will always be a well(ish) known offender. I actually think the M & Ms will have more prospects in the Fundy world. 

Many children of high profile criminals change their last names and do their best to fade into society unknown and unnoticed. Anna is knee deep into Fundyism and still loves and supports Josh, so I don't think she'd support her kids in disowning their dad.

If Josh does 10 years in prison, Mack, Michael and Marcus will 21, 20 and 18 when Josh is released and Meredith will be 16. Even if the Duggars are old news by then, Josh's release will likely be picked up by the media and the entire Josh family will be plastered in the news.

Maybe there's hope for Mason, Maryella and the newest Mgirl. Mason and Maryella probably will forget their lives w/Josh and Mgirl will only know him through prison visits. It would be a little easier for them to walk away.

Yeah the article specifically says they're going to have their own expert go over each device, and it could take months. Jim Bob will croak when he gets the bill for all that. Buy used and save the difference!

Can the Reber's eventually say they don't want Josh for that long and make him go somewhere else? 

 

Josh can't go to the TTH. Feb means they'd be stuck with Josh for Thanksgiving and Christmas. They wouldn't be able to have any minor family members over, probably would be obligated to host Anna/kids (with a newborn) or leave them alone in their house which doesn't sound like a sound idea. That's a long time to watch him. The longer he's under those restrictions, the more he may be tempted to break them. Or are they stuck?

Why would it matter if two Arkansas law enforcement agencies were involved in the investigation? And why would that need to be stipulated in the arrest warrant?

If the trial gets delayed I hope the Rebers nope out of the deal. Nobody should feel obligated to babysit sex pest as a favor to JB.

I don't understand that, either.  It makes it sound like the involvement of the state agencies somehow contaminated the investigation. 

Needing time for a defense expert to examine the computer evidence seems like a normal reason for a continuance.

Probably not for the defense expert getting paid by the hour but I'm expected to turn around cell phone cases in 2 weeks, even when I had 25 phones.  It should NOT take the expert months to go through a single computer that probably has a 500 GB hard drive.  Yes, she has to go to the LE office to do her work, but seriously, this is a delay tactic and a money grab.

No, it shouldn't take until next year, but if they're asking why not ask for six months and then be happy with say three?  My daughter has to use experts and sometimes their time is booked a month or two out.

Yes. I don't know if the judge will believe the "we need more time for discovery" argument. The second argument, though - that the lead defense attorney is dealing with other cases that were delayed because of Covid and are now scheduled for the fall - sounds credible to me. I'm aware of at least one federal civil trial that has been pushed back to January 2022 for similar reasons. That may well persuade the judge to delay the trial until February 2022.

Or, the judge might decide that the federal docket is already dealing with enough Covid-related delays/issues as it is - why add another?

And here I was, thinking that Josh was absolutely worthless - and yet, look how much money he's worth to his attorneys.

My prediction....If the delay is granted, the Rebers will request release from Josh babysitting duties. Boob has probably already drawn up a list of the next unlucky likely minders. Maybe the judge will split the difference and grant a shorter delay with the trial getting underway in early November. It's a lot to ask of anybody to provide room and board for Pest for eight more months, and this stall tactic is just postponing the inevitable.

There is a timing element at play here. The defense said they were booked in court until February. 

I hope that if the judge grants this request the Rebers will say Enough! I'm sure Boob has a Rolodex full of godly friends who would love to house his wrongly accused son. 🙄

The only Duggar who married at 18 was Justin. (Although Michelle was 17 and JB was 19.)

Joy, Kendra, Lauren, Claire and Ben were 19. 

Josh and Anna were 20. 

Everyone else I didn't name was older when they married.

Yeah that's not going to happen.   They keep track of cases, the Federal Courts aren't his parents who are too lazy to pay attention.   

The request is going to be granted.   This is pretty standard.   I knew it wasn't going in July.  They never go on the first setting in big high profile cases.   Defense needs time to review the evidence and prepare their case.   The prosecution has already done that in the TWO YEARS since they started watching the lot.   Not giving the defense time to review the evidence is an automatic appeal issue.  6 months given the defense team's other cases and the chaos of the court's docket due to the Covid sounds pretty likely.
