    There’s this clip going around where the Good Liars talked to a lady at the Trump rally about who she’d rather have as President and it tells you all we need to know about Maga.


    Putin is better than Biden and has gotten a bad wrap because Nazis went all over after WW2, and George Bush was a Nazi. It’s unclear which Bush she meant, but one literally fought the Nazis.

    Trump asks a Clinton-appointed judge to recuse herself in his lawsuit against Democrats for "pushing the Russia hoax".

    "Did Trump ask SCOTUS judges he appointed to recuse themselves in his cases?"

    Fuck, no.

    "Does his lawsuit have any chance of working?"

    Fuck, no. I mean, I'll let @cubby speak out if he so chooses, but, he's alleging racketeering and claiming $24 million in damages in an election he won.

    Trump knows he's going to lose and is looking for an excuse to blame it on. As I mentioned before, Clinton just needs to put the Mueller report on the judge's desk and ask "We done here?" There is a zero point negative zero percent chance Trump can prove conspiracy towards injurious falsehood when we know about the Trump Tower meeting, and Trump asking in public Putin to help him against political rivals. Multiple times.

    Trump is showing signs of desperation well beyond what he normally gets from, say, walking ten feet across level ground. The lawsuit seems to be a flailing attempt to change the narrative from "Trump is facing multiple civil and criminal suits and also sucked Putin's dick in public". Like Russian propaganda, this attempt will only work on people who choose to believe it, or who have no other source of news other than what Trump says.

    A former Trump administration official now running for Congress in New Hampshire voted twice during the 2016 primary election season, possibly violating federal voting law and leaving him at odds with the Republican party’s intense focus on “election integrity”.

    Matt Mowers, a leading Republican primary candidate hoping to unseat the Democratic representative Chris Pappas, cast an absentee ballot in New Hampshire’s 2016 presidential primary, voting records show. At the time, Mowers served as the director of former New Jersey governor Chris Christie’s presidential campaign in the pivotal early voting state.

    Four months later, after Christie’s campaign fizzled, Mowers cast another ballot in New Jersey’s Republican presidential primary, using his parents’ address to re-register in his home state, documents the Associated Press obtained through a public records request show.

    The case comes amid increased scrutiny on racial disparities in punishment for voting crimes. While there is not comprehensive data on those punishments, there have been high-profile cases in recent years where Black people who unknowingly violated voting laws were sentenced to years in prison. Several white defendants who appear to have committed intentional fraud in 2020 received probation.

    Legal experts say Mowers’ actions could violate a federal law that prohibits “voting more than once” in “any general, special, or primary election”. That includes casting a ballot in separate jurisdictions “for an election to the same candidacy or office”. It also puts Mowers, who was a senior adviser in Donald Trump’s administration and later held a state department post, in an awkward spot at a time when much of his party has embraced the former president’s lies about a stolen 2020 election and has pushed for restrictive new election laws.
    Man, why do Republican officials connected to Trump keep getting in trouble for registration fraud or voter fraud?

    H.B. 233 gives Tennesseans "an alternative form of marriage" between individuals who have a "conscientious objection to the current pathway," according to state Rep. Tom Leatherwood, the bill's Republican sponsor.

    As WKRN ​​reported, the GOP bill, first introduced in January, establishes a common-law marriage between "one man" and "one woman" but omits any age requirements for the union, an omission that Democrats have blasted.

    Another day, another no change in CyberTrump 2077. Well, I guess if nothing changed, there's no reason to expect the stock pr--



    Whoa!

    So, yeah, I guess those stories I linked -- mostly the resignations I'm guessing -- did have an effect, and DWAC's investors are losing hope. The stock closed at $63ish Friday, dropped immediately to $54ish Monday morning, then clawed some of that back. Then, I guess enough people said "No, this is getting worse before it gets better" and decided their money could go to a more deserving startup that wasn't under investigation.

    Now, if anyone did buy the original $10 price, they're still doing pretty well for themselves. But those values climbed fast. It was $100 within a week, and then slowly coasted down until the price you see now -- it has not really been much lower. I suspect the people who sold off in the last 2 days were people who bought on the low side, and had an easier time dumping their stock because they were still breaking even or better. If I'm right, I deserve a Nobel Prize in Economics for finding the only investors in human history who profited from working with Trump. If I'm right, we'll also see that stock price stablize since the remaining investors are waiting for good news to inflate the stock, rather than sell at a loss. If so, they'd best be careful. The second DWAC publicly announces the deal to buy CyberTrump 2077 is off, that price will actually go lower than the $10 offering at first, since DWAC will be a company that owns nothing and won't buy anything, either (SPACs worth that way) so we'll see that original price within seconds.

    You're misreading. She graduated high school in 2007, making her only about 24 years younger, not 30+. She didn't meet him until 2008, when she was a college freshman, according to the articles.

    It's a large age gap, sure, but it doesn't appear to be quite what it's being made out to be, unless there are other particulars not shared in the images.

    Eh, I don't expect everyone to sell the very second a stock peaks as if they have clairvoyance. But it went from $50 Jan 1 to $100 March 4 this year, very likely on the news there would be a March launch. Then it dropped to $70 March 11, stayed there for two weeks, and yeah anyone who didn't cash out when it didn't launch is either (a) hoping that the price rebounds when the app is fixed (b) an idiot (c) "I'm holding the stock because I need my father to see how much I love him" (d) all of the above.

    People had six months to change their mind and make a profit. But more importantly, had this March to change their mind and probably make a profit. Some, I suspect, did. Everyone else is hoping for a miracle that somehow turns Trump's social media platform from a ghost town into at least an outlet store, so they can sell and reclaim their otherwise wasted investment.

    The way she played an active and prominent role in that organization, which is for middle schoolers and high schoolers, while he was on the board, leads me to think they met before 2008. He was the commish for the tenn ag board that gave the FFA $1m two years in a row. The FFA is the org she became president of in 2007. You don't get to be president of a statewide 'Future Farmers of America' organization without being known to founding board members who are also the ag commish in the state you live in. The likelihood of them meeting prior to 2008 is pretty high. Whether or not she was an adult at that time, I don't know. Still incredibly skeevy.

    Born in '65, he was 42 in 2007. She was, at most, 18. He was arranging millions of dollars to fund her organization that focuses on mostly minor children. More than twice her age and in a position of power over her (both as board member and as ag commish). There's no way that's not a predatory relationship.

    Sure there is. The scenario makes it much more likely, sure, but hardly automatic. And to be fair, they've been married now for over a decade, with a kid.

    So unless there's actual evidence of predation...

    Would you want your kid to be in this situation? The guy shouldn't be allowed anywhere near children's organizations. When people tell you who they are, believe them. Guy was in a position to groom kids, by all appearances did so, then tries to pass a law that would remove the age limits on marriage. Normal people don't get remotely near that type of coincidence.

    To be clear, he met her before she was in college. He's on the FFA board. The board appoints presidents. She was president of the FFA starting fall semester her freshman year of college, which means she knew him before college. He was lavishing her with a position of power and literally millions of dollars, before marrying her 4 years later.

    Edit: starting fall semester, not spring semester; her jacket says president 2007-2008, which means starting fall semester.

    Did you cover the WashPo article yet? Didn't see it but - https://www.washingtonpost.com/techn...media-failure/

    TLDR:

    Trump's pissed that the rollout has been so slow and is even talking about moving to a more established "Free Speech" platform.

    Nunes, freaking out trying to please Trump, has apparently begun packing the company with his buddies which has resulted in departures for notable employees like the CTO, head of product development, and head of legal affairs.

    Nunes has to fly out to brief Trump on the status of the platform since I guess video calls aren't a thing.

    Trump still can't let Twitter go and is bigly mad that he was banned, and frequently pays attention to the site despite his claims it's irrelevant.

    Daily downloads have cratered from over 200K to an average of about 7-10K a day, which is very small for a new platform.

    Trump and Thiel are dining together because Trump probably wants some of that Thiel money.

    Already reported, but conservatives "influencers", being inherently reactionary in nature and not capable of creating their own content, are fleeing the platform because there's no audience and they have no "libs" to "own" to create content. The libs are still on Twitter and Instagram.

    Trump's kids are finally on the platform, and are using it to market-test new product concepts like a "Trump cider" which seems very unmanly.

    The app is still a technical nightmare, barely works, has little content, people can't get it, and as @Breccia noted the share price for DWAC has not fared well since the merger was announced. Oh yeah, and the merger is still under investigation by the SEC. And a second oh yeah, they missed their filing deadline for their annual report to the SEC.

    So...seems to be going about as well as most of Trump's ventures. Like Trump Steaks. And Trump Wine. and Trump University. And Trump Airlines. And Trump: The Game. And Trump Casino's (seriously, how do you fail to run a casino?!). And Trump Magazine. And Trump Vodka. And Trump Mortgage. I could go on but my fingers are getting tired of typing out all these failures.

    It's not like Trump will lose any money from his flop crap platform.
    He make money by mostly getting others to invest into X and then pay his companies for using his brand or support.
    In that aspect he is clever.
    Ukraine’s government has officially registered the Moskva cruiser wreck on the Black Sea bottom as a national underwater cultural heritage site.

    You nailed it - this lawsuit is just of the same from Team Trump - sue the issue into oblivion. The desperation is interesting, however, as the authorities are getting closer to putting him on the stand. And we all know what that means.

    Very true, but it just goes to show his continuing history of failure, and that Republicans apparently really like a fuckin mega-loser.
