Re: Roe v Wade has been overturned. How do you feel about that?

Because the attacker apparently shouted comments about Friday's Supreme Court decision, I'll note in this thread that a man has been charged with misdemeanor assault for slapping Rudy Giuliani on the back at a Staten Island grocery store yesterday. Here is video of the attack: https://www.youtube.c...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Does it bother no one that the ranking member wasn't allowed to choose the Republican members of the panel? Do any of you believe that this is an unbiased attempt to get to the truth of what happened on Jan. 6, rather than a one-sided effort to find something on Trump that can be used to prevent hi...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

The fact that Trump knew that the crowd was armed and still encouraged them to march on the Capital and "fight like hell" makes it more difficult for him to maintain his argument that he was only meaning for them to "fight" rhetorically.

The article linked to in that tweet is worth reading. https://www.emptywheel.net/2022/06/28/cassidy-hutchinson-proves-that-trump-knew-the-mob-he-sicced-on-mike-pence-was-armed/ Of particular note is the fact that Hutchinson recently replaced her attorney. I remember hearing about that a little while...

It also is a clear-cut example of them using g something from a source other than the LOTR appendices (assuming this will actually be in the show).

Yeah, that sequence can only be described as gobsmacking. Of course, the argument that Flynn would make is that he has to protect himself from the biased witchhunt that is out to get Trump and his loyal minions and therefore can't give any ammunition to the witchhunters not matter how innocuous. How...

Re: Roe v Wade has been overturned. How do you feel about that?

Is it an exaggeration to say that many Republicans want women to suffer and die? I think it would be more accurate to say that most pro-lifers are either indifferent, or consider it an acceptable trade-off for saving "unborn lives." I don't think "many" Republicans specifically ...

That's an impressively obscure tidbit. From "Of Dwarves and Men" The famous Celebrimbor, heroic defender of Eregion in the Second Age war against Sauron, was a Teler, one of the three Teleri who accompanied Celeborn into exile. He was a great silver-smith and went to Eregion attracted by t...

Mark Meadows (about Trump and the rioters, and the "hang Mike Pence" chant): "He doesn't think they are doing anything wrong."

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

What really surprised me is that they didn't play the "fight like hell" comment from Trump, made after he said that he knew that they had weapons.

Several clips of Hutchinson's private testimony have already been played in the hearings, including revealing which members of Congress requested pardens. But did they really think that the identity of the witness would not be revealed before the hearing? This is Washington, after all. Of course, we...
