    I should probably start a new thread titled Quelle Surprise but I am putting this here because it's the animating force of the Republican party's full on, openly authoritarian movement <astronaut meme here>, of which Trump is the current cult leader.


    Advisor To Major Pro-Trump Group Runs Racist Newsletter
    Turning Point USA advisor Rip McIntosh remains unapologetic about the anti-Black screeds he has published.
    By Nick R. Martin | July 12, 2021 7:02 a.m.

    This article was co-published with The Informant, which covers hate and extremism in the U.S.

    "It was an email so racist it might make a ku klux klansman blush.

    An advisor for the influential conservative youth organization Turning Point USA recently published an essay for subscribers of his personal newsletter that, among other things, said Black people have 'become socially incompatible with other races' and 'American Black culture has evolved into an un-fixable and crime-ridden mess.'"

    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/featur...ist-newsletter

    The whole thing is obviously appalling, but somehow it still fascinates me that supporters of a revanchist domestic terror crime syndicate can complain un self-consciously about "crime." Which brings me back to this, again, in its entirety this time:

    "There is no such thing as liberalism — or progressivism, etc.

    There is only conservatism. No other political philosophy actually exists; by the political analogue of Gresham’s Law, conservatism has driven every other idea out of circulation.

    There might be, and should be, anti-conservatism; but it does not yet exist. What would it be? In order to answer that question, it is necessary and sufficient to characterize conservatism. Fortunately, this can be done very concisely.

    Conservatism consists of exactly one proposition, to wit:

    There must be in-groups whom the law protectes but does not bind, alongside out-groups whom the law binds but does not protect.

    There is nothing more or else to it, and there never has been, in any place or time.


    For millenia, conservatism had no name, because no other model of polity had ever been proposed. “The king can do no wrong.” In practice, this immunity was always extended to the king’s friends, however fungible a group they might have been. Today, we still have the king’s friends even where there is no king (dictator, etc.). Another way to look at this is that the king is a faction, rather than an individual.

    As the core proposition of conservatism is indefensible if stated baldly, it has always been surrounded by an elaborate backwash of pseudophilosophy, amounting over time to millions of pages. All such is axiomatically dishonest and undeserving of serious scrutiny. Today, the accelerating de-education of humanity has reached a point where the market for pseudophilosophy is vanishing; it is, as The Kids Say These Days, tl;dr . All that is left is the core proposition itself — backed up, no longer by misdirection and sophistry, but by violence.

    So this tells us what anti-conservatism must be: the proposition that the law cannot protect anyone unless it binds everyone, and cannot bind anyone unless it protects everyone.

    Then the appearance arises that the task is to map “liberalism”, or “progressivism”, or “socialism”, or whateverthefuckkindofstupidnoise-ism, onto the core proposition of anti-conservatism.

    No, it a’n’t. The task is to throw all those things on the exact same burn pile as the collected works of all the apologists for conservatism, and start fresh. The core proposition of anti-conservatism requires no supplementation and no exegesis. It is as sufficient as it is necessary. What you see is what you get:

    The law cannot protect anyone unless it binds everyone; and it cannot bind anyone unless it protects everyone." --Frank Wilhoit

    Once again, it's time for Guess the Speaker!

    Voting system companies have denied the various allegations made by President Trump and his counsel regarding the 2020 election
    "That looks like a legal disclaimer by someone who doesn't want to get sued, but still wants to show what Trump said."

    FOX News, who splashed it over Trump's CPAC speech, wanna see the video?

    "I thought FOX News had already been sued."

    They have. Unlike, say, recent events with Donnie Dum-Dum Jr, FOX News is not a slow learner and doesn't want to get hit twice. Incidentally, they've hidden behind "even when Trump lies, his words are still news" and I think they'll probably succeed.

    Judge asks Trump attorneys in Michigan, including Lin Wood who apparently didn't know his name was even on the lawsuit (kek), if they like...checked any of the claims of massive fraud before bringing them to the court. You know, because as a lawyer you need to do some due diligence on behalf of your client before bringing their claims of fact in front of the court. You can't just make shit up while asking the court to disenfranchise millions of voters.

    What's going on in Republican world? Not much, just calling for the casual assassination of foreign leaders. And apparently at least Rep. Sabatini (I wince that he appears to have an Italian last name) is hungry for another foreign war. Are we gonna spend the next 20+ years occupying Cuba and fighting locals who don't want us there, and destroying the nations infrastructure and massacring civilians in the process, while achieving absolutely nothing of value to the US?

    Sounds like a price worth paying if it lets certain people denounce communism by pointing at a country that's been devastated by US attack, doesn't it?

    Colorado Republican Rep Lauren Boebert bombastically told the US federal government during the CPAC conference to “leave us the hell alone”.

    We’re here to tell the government: ‘we don’t want your benefits, we don’t want your welfare’,” she said on Saturday night. “Don’t come knocking on my door with your Fauci ouchie – you leave us the hell alone.

    But the four counties in Colorado with the highest unemployment rate in the state are all in Ms Boebert’s district, meaning many of her constituents are reliant on government support. The statewide unemployment rate in Colorado was 6.2 per cent in May of this, according to the most recent Federal Reserve Economic Data.

    Out of the state’s 64 counties, four have an unemployment rate of eight per cent or higher: San Miguel (11.4 per cent), Pitkin (8.5), Pueblo (8), and Huerfano (8) – all located in the 3rd Congressional District.

    The district covers around half of Colorado’s land mass and is home to just over 755,000 people, according to census data from 2019.
    Man, one day Republican voters will realize that the leopards they vote for are indeed eating their faces. Until then, enjoy your suffering because the people you (the royal you) elect voluntarily not only aren't working for you, but are actively working against your interests.

    Yo, want some spicey drama? Well good news!

    https://twitter.com/JennaEllisEsq/st...05969929035776

    Here's Jenna Ellis, from "The Kraken" legal team, verifying reporting that the RNC chief councel sent a note around last year trashing the Big Lie bullshit, and that it caused a tipsy Rudy Giuliani to drunk-dial him to yell at him, and then drunk-dial Ronna Romney-McDaniel (I'm choosing to include her family name in this even if she's ashamed of it) and demand that the lawyer be fired.

    McDaniel, obviously, has denied this.

    https://twitter.com/JennaEllisEsq/st...19750658904064

    And blocked Jenna Ellis on Twitter because of course she did.

    https://twitter.com/JennaEllisEsq/st...51093515800582



    And verified this tidbit, though given that she's an outside lawyer and was not working with the DoJ take this with a pinch of salt. Though it seems she's going after Barr on this, but whatever.

    I love it when the lying retards attack each other.

    You ever wonder if the ABA is super annoyed at how these two are dragging their profession through the mud? Lol.

    I'm honestly surprised they haven't been disbarred more generally or declared vexatious litigants.

    If the ABA or AMA want to address the issues with licensing absolute nutters to practice their professions without any mechanisms allowing for reviews and removals of those licenses, they're absolutely welcome to.

    Until then, I won't feel bad for either one of them.

    Er, to be fair, lawyers didn't exactly have a solid reputation in the States even before they came along. I think if you had asked most people to describe a lawyer they'd have been more likely to picture the ambulance-chaser types given how litigious Americans are in general.

    Oh, I don't feel bad. The feeling is entirely one of schadenfreude.

    Yeah the "Americans are too litigious" point is largely a myth pushed by conservatives pundits trying to lobby for tort reform in their favor. Aka corporations, like McDonalds in the coffee spill situation, who want to avoid having to pay when it actually is their fault. While these people aren't doing anything to help it it's far more of a media narrative than an actual truth.

    It's the same non-sense when the ACA was proposed. Republicans acting like tort reform/saving doctor's from the crippling fear of being sued for mistakes would save American health care when even the most optimistic estimates had it at I think around 5% of total costs maximum.

    You can't make stuff like this up.

    I have practiced law for 43 years and have never witnessed a proceeding like this. I take full responsibility for the pleadings in this case.

    We had a legal obligation to the country and to the electors to raise these issues. It is the duty of lawyers in the highest tradition of the practice of law to raise unpopular issues.
    -- Powell

    I don't think I've really ever seen an affidavit that has made so many leaps. This is really fantastical. So my question to counsel here is how could any of you as officers of the court present this type of an affidavit?
    -- the judge, right back at Powell

    Simply put, there is "raise unpopular opinion" and "submit bullshit backless claims under oath". I can say "Trump is morbidly obese and weighs six hundred pounds" all I want...here. I say that under oath, I'm in trouble. So why the hell would I submit a court claim saying "Trump weighs 600 pounds" if I couldn't back that up?

    The judge took issue with the team that used public court filings to baselessly claim that there was something wrong with the election, such as a guy who said he saw two post office guys with plastic bags that could have had illegal ballots, no really, that's what was submittted, a guy who says he saw plastic bags. That shit was filed as "evidence". The judge is being asked to force Powell and her Krak team to
    (a) pay for taxpayer court costs
    (b) lose their licences, henceforth to be known as "pulling a Giuliani"
    and from the back-and-forth, the judge is leaning further in that direction than away from it.

    I will also point out that Lin Wood's name came up. I don't know why, He's been cited but has publicly denied being part of the case. I remember Wood, I think he's a proven doucehbag, but if he was cited without his permission then we get something even better: Team Trump turning on itself in broad fucking daylight.

    @cubby your thoughts? Laughing so hard you choke on Greymane-brand popcorn doesn't count.

    On Saturday, the DoJ released a new video of

    three officers waded into the crowd to save a pro-Trump rioter who was trampled, only to be stripped of their protective gear, dragged down a set of stairs and attacked with crutches, flagpoles, batons and bare hands.
    "Surely the rioter was trampled because the WH cops did something!"

    Well, first of all, they were invading the WH, aren't they supposed to?

    Second of all, no, they didn't.

    Officer A.W. stepped out of a tunnel where police were congregated and into the crowd to help Rosanne Boyland, 34, a rioter and QAnon supporter who was trampled by the mob. She died of an accidental drug overdose, according to Washington, DC's chief medical examiner. Boyland's body is seen in some of the new videos, which also show her friend screaming for assistance.

    Prosecutors say A.W.'s body-worn camera video shows defendant Jack Whitton leaping over a barricade, knocking A.W. onto his back and attempting to wrestle away his baton. Over A.W.'s head, other rioters hit the police line with flagpoles and metal poles. The crowd drags A.W. into the crowd while he pleads for help. Members of the crowd ignore the plea, one rioter leans down and shouts, "traitor." Much of the clip is from A.W.'s perspective on the ground looking up.

    This bottom-up angle shows a man wearing a "sheriff" vest pulling A.W. down the stairs. He's also wearing a patch with the logo of the Three Percenters, a right-wing extremist group. Despite the "sheriff" label, there's no indication this man was part of the police defending the Capitol. In fact, he was included on a wanted poster from DC's police department and named as "person of interest" in the assault on A.W..

    The attack landed A.W. in the hospital, where he got staples in his head to stop the bleeding. Whitton was charged with several felonies, including assault. He hasn't yet entered a plea.

    Another officer, C.M., tried to help his colleagues. C.M.'s bodycam footage shows another officer dragged into the crowd. It also shows Boyland lying on the ground. This is the first footage the US government has released showing Boyland's death. She was one of a few Trump supporters who died in the attack.
    Prosecutors say the footage then shows defendant Michael Lopatic rushing toward C.M., attacking the officer and grabbing him by the head and punching him.

    C.M.'s bodycam is dislodged and falls to the ground, briefly revealing a splatter of blood.
    Holy shit, that's movie/video game level of "that guy is dead" right there. I didn't think that actually happened.

    C.M. got a concussion that day, though it may have been caused when he was assaulted a second time later in the day in a different incident, according to court filings. Lopatic was charged with several felonies, including assault, and hasn't entered a plea yet.

    The Justice Department released two bodycam clips from another officer. One clip shows the tug-of-war between the rioters and the officers who were trying to pull their colleague to safety. The officers are repeatedly pummeled with poles and what appear to be stolen police batons.

    Another bodycam clip, recorded about 20 minutes later, shows police in a second tunnel, holding the line with riot shields. Rioters throw objects, hitting the shields. According to prosecutors, Whitton is the man who is heard in the clip, shouting at the police, "you're gonna die tonight" (He later boasted to friends, saying that "I fed him to the people," referring to the officer, according to court filings).
    You know. Normal "on the tour" stuff.

    Anyone defending these people as peaceful who somehow hasn't changed their tune yet, not that there's this extra evidence, needs to do so. I mean, at the minimum they should say "those who committed violent crimes should XXX". I mean, that's a gimme.

    In fact, I'd love for our local Trump supporters to say that, right now. You know the deal, 24 hours to say "I condemn these acts of violence" which should be very easy to say. I mean, how hard can it be to say "I condemn these acts of violence"? Hell, maybe they already have and just want to self-quote, that's good too. But until that happens, I think I'll have to, because they are Trump supporters, lump them in with Trump, the man who incited the attacks.

    "Whoa! You can't say Trump supports the attacks! He said he condemned the violence!"

    Yes, but five days ago he said that one murderous insurrectionist shouldn't have been shot. So it seems he's changed his mind. Perhaps this new evidence will change it back, but at time of writing, he's said no such thing.

    Yeah, no, it's not entirely nonsense. The per capita litigation rate in the US is higher than most other Western nations (or at least had been at the time of my studying the matter--which admittedly was nearly 20 years ago). Now, we can argue about whether or not threats to sue are included in that and we can argue about whether or not the reputation is deserved, but you can bet you'll hear "I'll sue!" more often in the US than out. None of that, however, really detracts from my initial point: "lawyers" as a profession in the US didn't have a sterling reputation to begin with.

    Purely anecdotal: I accidentally rear-ended an off-duty cop in their personal car when they were trying to make an illegal left turn. They stopped more suddenly than I was prepared for, I slammed on my brakes and the front bumper of my car slid under the rear bumper of his truck. Minimal damage to his truck; totaled my car. He then spent the next 15-20 minutes physically trying to pry our two cars apart using an iron bar he borrowed from some road workers nearby. After exchanging information he drove off (his truck was fine) and I waited for my parents (I was 18) to come pick me up and take me to where my car was towed...where it was pronounced DOA, basically. A little under a week later we got a knock on our door on Sunday morning and I was served. Cop was suing me for *pinky to mouth* one million dollars in physical trauma that prevented him from "performing his husbandly duties" as it was written. I'm sure him throwing his back out trying to physically yank our cars apart had nothing to do with it. Yeah yeah, "ACAB" and all that, but my family has a bunch of stories like this from fuckers who thought they could earn a quick buck by suing the pants off of one of us with little cause. I think my insurance ended up settling with him for 10k, so he got something out of it. Hope his pecker fell off.

    At any rate, while there are certainly some made-up narratives pushed by the right to appease their corporate owners, it's not all pure hokum. Just not for the reasons they propose.

    Honestly, if someone says it is all a myth, all they need to do is take a look at the history of the person this thread is named after. Trump is known for suing anyone. Hell, he made it a campaign promise to allow people to sue anyone that says an opinion about them they don't agree with and win. It gets so bad with people like him that they had to enact Anti-SLAPP legislation in some states.

    Weisselberg has officially been terminated from his position at Mar-a-Lago and several other Trump subsidiaries. No explanation given yet since he's still CFO of the main organization.

    Other subsidiaries that he has been removed from as an officer include the Trump Payroll Corp., which was also named in the indictment, Trump National Golf Club, Trump International Hotels Management and the Trump International Golf Club in Scotland, according to publicly filed corporation documents.
