Ooh, I meant "new reply".  Sorry.  You know, you aren't the easiest person to deal with, but I actually sort of like you.  I'm not the easiest person to deal with either.  If we ever met face-to-face, we would probably either hate each other or become good friends, being so similar in some ways.   Big Grin

It confuses me when someone quotes a post of mine and the responds on a tack that has little or nothing to do with my point. Forgive my not understanding.

And yeah, I can be prickly at times. This isn't one of those times, though.

Fair enough. I get tangential sometimes. When I have a thought on my mind, sometimes I am looking for a place to put it. I don't always choose perfectly.

Stupidity of a whole other order of magnitude!

Quote:Lin Wood Says Brian Kemp to be Arrested, Doubles Down on Georgia Vote Fraud Conspiracy


Quote:Attorney Lin Wood has doubled down on his Georgia voter fraud conspiracy by predicting that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp will "end up in handcuffs" for refusing to overturn the 2020 election results in the state.
In a video posted to Twitter early Monday by @PatriotTakes, Wood tells an unnamed interviewer that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, Lt. Governor Geoffrey Duncan, Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger, and Attorney General Chris Carr will all be arrested soon.
Wood didn't specify the allegations against the Georgia officials that led to this predictions. Last year, Kemp, Duncan, Raffensperger and Carr repeatedly refused Trump's request to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state.
"I think Brad's probably going to be in cuffs too," he said. "It's called election fraud. That's not a good crime to commit ... That's pretty close to treason."

Over 100 republicans signed a letter threatening to start a 3rd party. Miles Taylor (former DHS Chief of Staff, who anonymously wrote a book against Trump) has declined to list who has signed the letter, but cites the growing problems with the party and Trump’s lies.

After the way they've treated Cheney, I don't think anyone in the Realistic Branch of the Republicans can consider themselves safe. The Hill reported Elizabeth Warren as saying "The Republican Party is eating itself, and discovering that the meal is poisonous."

Back to Trump news:

Quote:Officials in Palm Beach, Fla. are reportedly considering a course of action should former President Trump be indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance while he is staying at Mar-a-Lago.

According to Politico, law enforcement officials in the town have discussed how to handle a possible extradition if Trump is indicted by authorities investigating whether he committed banking and tax fraud.

The news outlet notes Trump's location would affect potential extradition proceedings, as Florida could provide some protection through its extradition statute, which gives Gov. Ron DeSantis ® the ability to intervene and determine whether someone should be surrendered to out-of-state law enforcement.

“The statute leaves room for interpretation that the governor has the power to order a review and potentially not comply with the extradition notice,” Joseph Abruzzo, circuit court clerk of Palm Beach County, told Politico.

Abruzzo is reportedly a former associate of President Biden's younger brother, Frank, but he told the outlet that “the full extent of the law will be followed and carried out appropriately, without bias.”

If Trump travels to Bedminster, N.J. as Mar-a-Lago closes for the season, however, his prospects could change. The state has a similar statute to Florida, but the governor, Phil Murphy (D), is not an ardent supporter of Trump, like DeSantis is, Politico noted.

I imagine if the hypothetical extradition order is ignored, New York can sue Florida in federal court for enforcement.

Can they run the trial in his absence if he refuses to make his scheduled court appearances?

We can only hope they do, as it'll truly fuck any chances of the "Trump Party" ever
winning government.    As well as the "old" GOP.

According to Google, absentia trials are allowed in New York pending a hearing showing that the absence is voluntary (i.e. not in a hospital, jail, or otherwise indisposed involuntarily). If the absence is voluntary (as it would obviously be in this case) then trial in absentia is permitted by NY law. Indeed, in 2018, Cy Vance Jr, the DA in question here, did exactly that against a rapist who'd fled the jurisdiction.

I can't get too teary-eyed over Liz Cheney.  She's a warmongering old shit, just like her old man.  The "realistic" wing of the GOP still loves the idea of dealing with every foreign problem by dropping bombs on it ( provided they have no reasonable capability to shoot back ) and solving every domestic problem by giving rich fucks more tax cuts.

The Trumptards are simply batshit crazy.

There is not much to choose from there.

Oh, I'm not lauding her policy stances, but I do respect her willingness to put her party standing on the line for speaking and sticking to the truth in this case.

This is the kind of Administration the Republicans want to return to the Oval Office:

Quote:A conservative activist group, helped by a former British spy, secretly surveilled government employees during the Trump administration with the goal of discrediting perceived enemies of former President Trump, The New York Times reported, citing people and documents on the matter.


Project Veritas — with aid from a former British spy and Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater — was part of a campaign that involved surveillance operations against members of the FBI.

The overall effort, the Times wrote, also included a plan for a sting operation against Trump’s former national security adviser H.R. McMaster that involved some Veritas staffers, though Veritas itself has denied any involvement with that plot.

Both, the Times alleged, were intended to reveal anti-Trump sentiments.

A spokesperson for Project Veritas did not comment on the Times story, but pointed to a video posted to YouTube featuring James O’Keefe, the head of Project Veritas.

“Adam, if you’re asking these questions suffice it to say you have your facts wrong and it appears you’re going to print based upon supposition, rumor, and speculation rather than verifiable facts,” O’Keefe said in the video, addressing Adam Goldman, one of the Times reporters who contacted him for comment.

Prince and McMaster could not be reached for comment.

Project Veritas filed a defamation suit against the Times in the supreme court of the state of New York in Westchester County last November after asking the paper to retract two stories, one by Maggie Astor and another by Tiffany Hsu, about a Project Veritas video accusing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) of voter fraud.

As part of the FBI operation reported by the Times, Project Veritas rented a pricey Georgetown house as headquarters.

The group reportedly had women pose as potential dates for FBI agents in order to secretly record them making negative comments about Trump.

The plan to discredit McMaster involved hiring a woman to approach him in the bar of Washington, D.C., restaurant Tosca, and over drinks record him making comments that could get him fired, the Times wrote.

However it is unclear if Project Veritas ever ran the operation against McMaster, the Times reported.

Hey!  Whaddaya know?   There WAS voter fraud in 2020.

https://kdvr.com/news/local/more-charges...er-arrest/

Quote:CHAFFEE COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — Prosecutors have filed new charges against Barry Morphew, alleging the man accused of murdering his missing wife submitted a presidential ballot in her name.

Morphew was recently arrested on charges of murdering his wife, Suzanne, after she disappeared a year ago. She still has yet to be found.


Quote:On April 22, Barry was asked by FBI agents why he submitted a ballot for Suzanne.

“Just because I wanted Trump to win…I know she (Suzanne) was going to vote for Trump anyways,” he told investigators. He also said he thought the “other guys'” were cheating so he would “give him (former president Trump) another vote.”


Fuckface lost Colorado anyway.
