    Womp womp, Twitter doesn't like circumventing bans either. And will ban accounts that exist just to retweet Trump's blogs. Sad, truly pathetic people, these are.

    I think a lot of it will depend. Trump himself won’t be running in 2022. So how enthused about endorsing other people will he, personally, be?

    I think more likely it will depend on if Trump is on the ballot. If he is, he will try and get them to vote otherwise he won’t care.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    That's valid, but the laws have to be passed first. Which as we've seen, is an ongoing process.

    Trump is a fat sick senile old man. I think he's too sad, too pathetic, too salty to run ever again. But he loves rallies, he might campaign for others...who pay him.

    Not only is it a blog, it's a blog with comments disabled. Trump does not want to be contradicted with facts or evidence, and also, this one time someone said something mean about him and he cried for a day and a half.

    Reminder: Trump risked the health and lives of two secret service agents so he could do a drive-by wave to his cultish base while he had covid.

    And related...it's sure been a while since Devin Nunes has been in the news! His lawyer owes CNN $21K for filing frivolous lawsuits. That's all, he's still an irrelevant piece of shit.

    This is disappointing. Unhinged comments from his supporters would be a gold mine.

    It is exactly what a lot of people thought Trump’s version of free speech actually was... a place where only he can talk.

    I mean...every once in a while I'm not sure if I should take a short of grain alcohol over rock salt, or read the FOX News comments below their stories. I don't think we're missing much.

    Wednesday's report:

    46,129 new cases, about 10k fewer than last Wednesday.

    Top 7*:

    Fuck Florida.
    Michigan: 3,047 new cases; 45 deaths
    New Jersey: 2,528 new cases; 49 deaths
    New York: 2,511 new cases; 52 deaths
    Illinois: 2,410 new cases; 33 deaths
    Pennsylvania: 2,386 new cases; 63 deaths
    Texas: 2,384 new cases; 58 deaths

    *Places 3 through 7 are separated by only 150 cases, so it felt appropriate to include them all. Plus Texas is lying through omission still. Florida had more cases than Michigan by over 1,300, FYI.

    Pretty much the same picture as yesterday as cases continue falling nationally. With the exceptions of Hawaii and New Mexico, New England dominates the top 10 states for percentage vaccinated, varying between 51.2% in Pennsylvania to 61.2% in New Hampshire. California is still just shy of the top 10 in the 11th spot with 50.1% which is pretty huge considering the population, New York is 14th with 48.9%. Texas is 40th. Just under Puerto Rico.

    743 deaths is around 250 fewer than last Wednesday and brings the total to 593,148. Quite a large drop from last week, though I don't expect the drops to be so precipitous for the rest of the week. Cases are falling, but until this week they weren't falling that quickly nationally. We're averaging around 700 a day now.

    Related news:

    Minnesota, Virginia join U.S. states easing COVID-19 restrictions--I'm against restrictions being relaxed in general in the US at this stage, but Minnesota still has a 5.6% positivity rate and currently has the second-highest new case per 100k ratio in the nation. Granted it's Minnesota, so chances are it wasn't being taken especially seriously there in the first place. Virginia's doing well, but honestly this isn't the time to start letting up for anyone. All it takes is for anti-mask dipshits from one state to go visit another.

    Analysis: Half of Global Coronavirus Deaths Unreported:
    The analysis found that the U.S. still has the highest death toll of any country. But instead of the country's official toll of nearly 580,000 lives lost, it is actually over 900,000, according to the analysis. That number would put the U.S. well over the death toll from the 1918 flu pandemic, which was estimated to be about 675,00 lives.
    Looking at you, Florida.

    Stay safe, folks.

    Those aren’t “legitimate” places. I expect idiocy to be brewing there. The blog of a former President on the other hand is supposedly better than that. Watching all the pigeons flock there to shit all over it would’ve been wonderful.

    It’s like that Fox Business op-Ed from Rick Scott a few weeks ago. Fox has the veneer of legitimacy but the comments section was a clown show.

    Oh boy, apparently Stefanik isn't Trumpian enough for the Trump cult. Their reception to Trump endorsing her and her potential to replace Cheney as conference chair seems uh...not great.

    Man I love the circular firing squad. Here I was worried liberals/progressives would end up in this situation with "purity tests" and whatnot, but it seems like Republicans have bigly beat them to that punchy.

    Lou fuckin Dobbs calling her a RINO. Toppest of keks.

    She isn't Trumpian enough for Trump, because she was against him, before she was for him. And then when she was for him, she is idiotically for him.

    Brian Kolfage, who was previously indicted with Steve Bannon for his role in an allegedly fraudulent crowdfunding campaign to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, was indicted Tuesday on additional charges, of fraud and filing a false tax return.

    A federal grand jury in Florida accused Kolfage of failing to report hundreds of thousands of dollars in income on his 2019 taxes, according to the latest indictment.

    An arraignment and initial appearance for Kolfage are set for May 27 in a Pensacola courthouse before Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Timothy, court filings show.

    Because, when Trump was president, they thought they could get away with anything. And technically they could. Because with Barr and other cronies, they would silence the investigations or pardon them.

    Stefanik used to identify as a moderate. In 2020 she dances with Trump at the TNC. She's also a woman and they're desperate.

    Stefanik is stupid popular around here, despite having no experience before getting the job, basically never doing Q&A and never being able to defend herself when she did, voting against the tax cut for the rich, voting to take away health care, and Puling a Clinton by running in a district in which she just happened to move about 30 seconds before the election. She's a Republican, she's rich (well, upstate NY rich), she's a woman, her last election rally was literally a pickup truck and motorcycle parade (not kidding, I could have taken pictures) and she supports Trump in effectively everything.

    I've talked with her local staff. Stefanik tells them nothing, because like any other Party of Trump member they have no backing they're willing to admit to in public. They're forced to defend her behavior with nothing to go on and armed only with pamphlets for the next election.

    She's perfect for the current "Republican" party. She's taking the reins. The good news? She's probably an easy target for the Democrats. Without Trump physically coming here to help (again) she'll have a hard time defending her record once it's shoved on every TV in the county, including the waiting room at the hospital. Oh, and there are some highly-motivated college students because of her stance with student loans.

    @Edge- and/or @cubby is there any chance these charges were delayed until the Barr was closed?
