    2020 Election Fuckery

    Bullshitting isn't as easy as it once was. Trump has shown everybody just what gigantic unchecked steaming piles can lead us to. Maybe the media is realizing there is real danger in the both-sider stuff. Bullshitting leads to lies, lies lead to Big Lies, and Big Lies are dangerous. For the moment anyway it's no longer cute. Poor Rand has gotten away with it for so long he must be shocked.

    Dominion Sues Rudy

    I thought he might, but figure he'll balk at his $20k a day fee.
  4. Easy peazy.."I posted it because you won the argument!"

    Dominion Sues Rudy

    Pretty sure that's the first thing Rudy's lawyer is going to tell him.
  6. Since it's ridiculous to send money to your mother, it's ridiculous for all. Thank you for a perfect example of libertarian thought.

    tRump can't live at mar-a-lago

    The banks running from him is probably the bigger reason for the exodus. He's going to find out most of his "friends" were hanging around him because he had access to Big Buck$. Now that he's just a bore and an asshole with a toxic public record of inciting a riot at the capital? It's "...see ya, loser." He has destroyed himself.

    The Senate Impeachment Trial of DJT

    Please cite the part of the constitution that grants the VP the power to decline to accept the results of the electoral college. The standard for impeachment is an opinion, there isn't a specific definition of "high crimes and misdemeanors" Can be most anything. Even lying about a BJ so your wife doesn't find out.
  9. Wouldn't someone need nukes to enforce that?

    Conspiracy Theories Are For Losers

    The irony is that if his definition of "loser" is rejected by his peers...he will be one. Winners are susceptible to confirmation bias too. Here's a demonstration: He's right in a certain way. We are not as rational as we imagine ourselves to be. To an unsettling degree people believe what they want to believe.

    Donnie picks his defender lawyer.

    The prosecutors may have been either among the younger of their siblings and/or came from large families. https://scienceblogs.com/cortex/2007/05/10/eating-habits-and-birth-order

    The Senate Impeachment Trial of DJT

    But he claimed there and previously (many times) that Pence had the power to stop the voting in the House, stop the electoral college from doing it's constitutional duty. This was a lie, a damn lie, and a lie that had people looking for Mike Pence, his own VP, in order to hang him. This is on top of telling the crowd the election was stolen, and that on top of organizing a mob to protest Congress. A POTUS who does those things can easily be judged to have committed what was known as a misdemeanor under the definition used to the word at the time the constitution was created. They don't need to decide beyond a reasonable doubt that lie was causative, as there is no legal standard in this process, it's not a court of law, it's a political process. The Chief Justice merely decides on process issues when the Senate calls on him to do so. He does not run the show as a judge does in court. Roberts mentioned in the last go-round that his goal was to do nothing exceedingly well.

    I think they will feel that all he can do is split the Rs, which hands power to the party that Hillary came from, which fomented color revolutions in their sphere if influence. They will want to keep the Rs whole. They will tell Donald Siberia is a splendid place for golf courses. A melting-tundra sink-hole sand trap will be blamed for what happens next.

    I think they already know they have a useless idiot on their hands, wondering if it they can rinse it off. Summon the hookers... postit'sya!

    It's not a legal process it's a political one. This is not a court of law, he could pick anyone. I guess he figured Ted Cruz and or Gohmert aren't up to the task. Then again, maybe they were smart enough to refuse.

    I think acceptance due to several incidents. Rumor is the decision to finally move from NY to the WH was the result of Don caving to her demand for a renegotiated pre-nup. It was odd for her to delay moving to the WH herself and the cover story doesn't fit with the way the Trumps operate. She has slapped his hand away in public. She is committed to the marriage but establishes limits on her participation in the BS so she is aware of the BS. Old saying about the Russians: "No people are more lied to, no people are more aware they are lied to." Yet the are strident Russian patriots. Solzhenitsyn considered being exiled the worst thing that could have happened to him. A contradiction in the Western mind but not to Russians. I would look to her to contiinue to play along unless the downfall begins to threaten to harm Barron and leaving Don could help that. She won't place Donald in front of her kid.

    Her background is slavic. That culture, born of centuries of exquisite pain, has an aspect of acceptance of fate far deeper than what is typically found in Western people. I loved the HBO series "Chernobyl" for it's depiction of it. She is more capable of realizing the truth of the situation yet sticking with it than Americans are. I's say that there are hardly any American women who would stick with Trump without self-delusion, with actually believing the bullshit.
  19. The key aspect of the military art isn't the removal of societal norms against killing. There's, sad to say, no trick to it. Most any clown or half-assed gangster can do so. The magic is in maintaining control of those men once you have done it. It's not all that tough with men who have only been trained to kill, but for those who have either killed or have been repeatedly been amped up to do it for real? Not so much. The Hells Angels were originally a bunch of WW2 vets.
  20. Why didn't Newmax and the rest of the RW media report that? I think there should be equal treatment here.

    Pro-Trump lawsuit cites Lord of the Rings

    I've heard from someone who should know that as long as he did it for free...didn't take anybody's money for that shit, lawyers can usually keep practicing. They can't escape the loss of professional cred though. Judges have long memories and that can be bad news for their real clients whenever a judge has discretion in a matter, and that happens a lot. I would like to hear that from a real lawyer before betting on that though.

    I thought this tread was about Melonia... https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jan/22/melania-trump-photo-snub-florida-white-house She might be wise to get out while the gettin's good IF the pre-nup allows it. Before the banks and whatnot start seizing assets.
