Saturday, my friend Steve took me out for what we refer to as “meal” at the restaurant we frequent the most on my side of town. People of every stripe come in there. But I was particularly disturbed at seeing a stocky and very dark Black man wearing a mugshot shirt; the expression on his face was similar to the face’s on the shirt.

I can’t understand - and I probably never will - understand how non-white people can support him, after all the abuse he’s heaped upon them.

With her own attorney Dan Hartman by her side, Lambert appeared before Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Jeffery Matis three days after she was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service in Washington, D.C. That arrest occurred because of the bench warrant Matis authorized on March 7, after Lambert failed to show up for a court hearing.

Lambert is facing four felony charges in Michigan for her alleged involvement in a conspiracy to obtain and improperly access voting machines that were used in the 2020 presidential election.

Lambert has gained prominence among supporters of former President Donald Trump for her efforts to challenge election results and spearhead election-related litigation in battleground states. In Michigan, she worked on a high-profile and unsuccessful case that attempted to get the courts to reverse Democrat Joe Biden’s victory.

She’s also representing Patrick Byrne, former chief executive officer of Overstock.com, in a defamation suit brought against Byrne by Dominion Voting Systems. She was arrested in Washington, D.C., immediately after she appeared on behalf of Byrne for a hearing in federal court.

Patriotic, prayerful and rightwing Americans are being offered the chance to purchase – for a mere $59.99 – a bible endorsed by Donald Trump

Trump criticized Merchan, his daughter and one of Bragg’s prosecutors in the hours before Merchan issued his order.

“The uncontested record reflecting the Defendant’s prior extra-judicial statements establishes a sufficient risk to the administration of justice … and there exists no less restrictive means to prevent such risk,” Merchan wrote Tuesday.

I like Mr. Stewart so much. He’s truly a mensch.

I was a bit let down by the way he pushed the Chinese lab theory for Covid with nothing but incredulity that the disease could possibly have started by cross-species contamination. And he seems like he’s trying to be more edgy lately? But still definitely one of the best non-journalist journalists I know of…

Thought I saw something posted about this but I can’t find it…

Miller also attacked the bar’s immediate revocation of Eastman’s law license as unfair, because he cannot work as a lawyer at a time when he needs funds to fight criminal charges in Georgia that are also related to his 2020 election work for Trump.

“Any reasonable person can see the inherent unfairness of prohibiting a presumed-innocent defendant from being able to earn the funds needed to pay for the enormous expenses required to defend himself, in the profession in which he has long been licensed. That is not justice and serves no legitimate purpose to protect the public,” the statement said.

Also, foxes should be allowed to guard henhouses. After all, why should they be prevented from working at their preferred profession just because a few hens have disappeared?

So instead of paying the judgement(s), he’s got this hail mary IPO that is another obvious fraud. I wonder if he’s working with the shorts for kickbacks. It’s not his money anyway.

They pitched the idea of Truth Social following the Capitol riot, after Mr Trump was banned from Twitter, now X.

Both co-founders met Mr Trump as contestants on NBC’s The Apprentice reality show.

In the lawsuit, filed on 24 March in Florida state court, lawyers for the former president say Mr Moss and Mr Litinsky were in charge of Trump Media & Technology Group’s daily operations, but “failed spectacularly at every turn”.

The cause for the rejection, according to the New York County Supreme Court website, is because the requisite paperwork lacked a current financial statement.

It is also missing the name of his attorney-in-fact. Trump will have a chance to resubmit his request.

Greed. Greed for power, fame, money. It’s built into capitalism and pervades every nook and cranny of society, it would seem.
