Let's talk about Trump

Their universal strategy. Drain the bank account.

Waking up to a severed horse head at the foot of your bed. Same message.

Accountability is absolutely necessary to repair this shit show. Please share your thoughts as to how to police this systemic problem. :clinking_glasses:

You could increase the budget and number of public defenders, but Republican politicians are strongly opposed.

Someone is old enough to recognize what I am talking about is a left wing talking point since it disproportionatly affects poor people.

@MikeN1 solution (and analysis) is just one for which there are many, it points to the system of courts as a bottleneck for which overcharging provides a release.

A solution to this bottle neck according to @MikeN1 will be to increase public defenders.

Its the basis for a discussion, but as of late many on the left seem to have forgotten their principles in favor of tribalism.

The sources said Meadows informed Smith’s team that he repeatedly told Trump in the weeks after the 2020 presidential election that the allegations of significant voting fraud coming to them were baseless, a striking break from Trump’s prolific rhetoric regarding the election.

According to the sources, Meadows also told the federal investigators Trump was being “dishonest” with the public when he first claimed to have won the election only hours after polls closed on Nov. 3, 2020, before final results were in.

Meadows mans up.

If only there were a presidential candidate who was all over this and put his ass on the line just after the 2020 erection when it was really unpopular.

Oh wait,

So did this guy.

Right the New Jersey bridge guy…a real man of integrity.

Seems he likes Swedish things too

If you know who Robert Kagan is then this article from him needs little more in way of an introduction, if not and briefly he is a prominent talking head from the establishment in his own right, he is also husband to another prominent establishment figure who served both left and right administrations, Victoria Nuland.

Indeed reading this article there is no world Kagan imagines the establishment types working with Trump ever. Stop him by any means, legal or illegal and failing that, like in 2016 every estabishment type signing up for his administration should be with an eye to block his every move. To hell with democracy.

Not that a give a shit about Trump, or have been following this trial, but the NY AG is really stretching here.

She wants 250$ million for a crime that wasn’t committed and inflated assets that the banks themselves didn’t object to?

Ok, you go girl.

Looks like Glenn Greenwald also found the Robert Kagan article I linked , although mistakenly IMO writes off its significance as hysterical writing.

edit/ To add one more take and I got this impression too, the establishment basically admitting legal methods to remove Trump have failed and giving a green light to the illegal or any means including assassination.

Here it comes: TDS, the sequel… :sweat_smile:

Yep they are really pushing hard that a vote for Trump is a vote for Armageddon. Also Civil War apparently, as the new movie trailer has come out, and it’s pretty clear who are the “good guys”. Oh and there’s chatter about that Obama produced movie “leave the world behind”, I’m sure there’s some TDS woven into that as well.

It’s incredible how much money and effort goes into an agenda and narrative.

So far, I’ve only seem the systemic racism clip. I’m sure it’s in there though.

Now I’ll have to finish it. All I know so far is they made Julia Roberts into some megabitch. She might have thought, of kewlz, I can play the bad guy.

Great job casting if you pop balloons.

New narrative “Trump is Hitler” is being pushed, I noticed this for a while but a couple of days ago watching CNN and Kaitlan Collins pushed the narrative 3 times in about 10 seconds was so unnatural forced and contrived it was an obvious narrative, seems like I’m not the only one to notice.

In other news, Colorado Supreme Court kicks Trump off ballot.

Lol @ American Democracy. The decision will now go to the Supreme court of the USA, wait for the next left and media push wailing for Clarance Thomas to recuse himself. I suspect many watching are thinking “this is not how democracy is supposed to work”. :grinning:

You know, for how terribly and openly corrupt Trump is, for how much of a conman and pathological liar he is, for how he so openly adulates (and parrots) Putin and lavishes praise on other dictators unflinchingly…it truly amazes me how Trump has been able to get as far as he has unscathed. Trump festering for as long as he has in the political sphere, causing untold levels of damage to America’s branding, among other things, is truly a testimony to how tolerant the United States has become of domestic enemies. Really a miracle he hasn’t been snuffed out yet – we all know he has been basically begging for persecution for quite some time now. It’s like the gov took Waco as a case study, and perhaps are over-correcting now. I don’t think it outlandish at all to believe that, if Trump acted the way he did in many other (developed, modern) countries, he would have been taken out of the running (via means legal or illegal) long, long ago.

See, you bring up an interesting point, but the main takeaway is you have no idea “why” and that is kind of important to understanding the situation.

You’ve had about 8 years to think that question over and frankly if you listen to the media reasoning on that question its insulting and risible.

But glad to see you asking the right questions.

I think he will be if not metaphorically quite literally.

Maybe, but I think it shows how strong and well defended the US is geopolitically. The US has the money, resources, favorable geography, weak or very friendly neighbors and thousands of miles of oceans between them and their nearest viable threats. That creates space for the domestic nuttery to grow wild like a deer population and then crash in some analogous chronic wasting disease moment, which could be a civil war, or simply the acceptance of a few more, sigh, Orwellian rules. Culture wars have cancelled people in universities and private and public workspaces; now we’re seeing the federal government try it out at the highest political level.

I wish the pushback happened right after 2016, but the right was all hard for Trump and they left themselves wide open. We’re getting some of it now, but who knows if it’s too little too late. :idunno:

I loathe Trump and think he’s unfit for the office. The thought that my choice will be him or Biden again though gets me reaching for my early ballot. :face_with_diagonal_mouth:

Both plastic bags and Trump are now banned in Colorado. If anyone is looking for a great business idea - orange plastic bags.

You can thank me later.
