Guess what? Now the GOP care about anti trust in baseball.

The three amigos.

This is just one more sign the republicans are fucked, when Donald goes on trial he will demand they defend him in congress while the trial is ongoing. Donald will also insist that they perform and protest on the courthouse steps during his trial or he will tell the party base to fuck them. Too bad he was de platformed and had his knees cut out from under him when Twitter belatedly banned him, or he would have another Capital hill style riot at the courthouse.

Just a reminder.

America will be getting lot's of those at the trials for the suckers, the trials for Trump and his cronies for sedition etc, will take place later, closer to the election and events will be replayed again only with a lot more context and information added. Also Trump will most likely be in prison for other things before it happens and might appear in an orange jump suit without much hair.

Trump will be quietly allowed to leave the country. There is a pretty ocean view villa in North Korea that has most amenities other than contact with the outside world.

The New York Times recently ran a blockbuster report on a Republican fundraising racket. WinRed, a for-profit company doing fundraising for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, made it hard for online donors to realize they were inadvertently agreeing to recurring donations. Among the victims was a 63-year-old dying of cancer and living on less than $1,000 a month. He gave $500 to Trump, only to have the campaign take $3,000 from his bank account in less than 30 days. “It felt like it was a scam,” his brother said.

The Trump campaign had to refund $64.3 million to online donors after the election. But that money allowed Trump to be competitive in the weeks before the vote, and it delivered a tidy windfall for WinRed. “WinRed even made money off donations that were refunded by keeping the fees it charged on each transaction,” the Times reported.

This is shocking, shoddy, shady — but hardly surprising. Decades ago, in 1992, the New York Times ran an earlier exposé of Republican fundraising. The direct-mail pioneer Richard A. Viguerie had started an organization called the United Seniors Association that bombarded retirees with letters warning that “All the Social Security Trust Fund Money Is Gone!” and demanding $5 membership dues to protect their benefits. Most of the money raised went into more fundraising — including generous payments to Viguerie’s own companies.

Viguerie, who had once worked with George Wallace, was one of the creators in the 1970s of the direct-mail fundraising juggernaut that helped elect Ronald Reagan and lots of other Republicans. But the direct-mail wizards raised money by introducing to politics the kind of high-pressure sales tactics normally reserved for the sales of penny stocks or timeshares. Before long, the profit motive became as important as politics. While fleecing the faithful, the fundraisers radicalized Republican politics.

As Terry Dolan of the National Conservative Political Action Committee said: “The shriller you are, the better it is to raise money.” Conservative fundraising appeals, now on the Internet, depend on “triggering” right-wing voters on incendiary issues such as abortion, gun rights, marriage equality, transgender rights, immigrant “invasions,” and now “cancel culture” and “wokeism,” while warning of imminent doom unless you send in your donation today. That creates a financial imperative to wage culture wars to keep the cash registers ringing.

Mickey Edwards, a former Republican member of Congress from Oklahoma, recently wrote in the Bulwark about his experience as chairman of the American Conservative Union in the early 1980s, when the process was just beginning:

“The ACU, and conservatives generally, had long been focused on a few things — keeping taxes low, keeping regulation in bounds, adequately funding national defense, and, more generally (this was how conservatism was defined in political terms), prudence and skepticism in the face of proposals for sweeping overhauls. However, what I found in the fundraising letters I was being sent to sign were harangues centered on social issues. Waging the culture war was a more effective way of raising money.”

Edwards edited out the social issues, but over time they took precedence in Republican politics — and policy. “These fights began to creep into Congress as well,” Edwards wrote, “the usual partisan squabbles over tax policy, defense spending, foreign policy, assistance programs, and budget levels joined by bitter and continuous partisan fights over social issues: abortion, gay rights, women’s empowerment, etc.”

Fast-forward to today. I recently received a fundraising email from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R.-Ga.), the kook who blames Jewish space lasers for wildfires. Alongside a picture of her holding an assault rifle, she writes that she will “fight” President Biden “with everything I have.” “Will you stand with me against Joe Biden’s tyranny?” she demands, seeking a “gift of $50, $100, or even $1,000 TODAY!” Such violent appeals work: According to Politico, Greene raked in a whopping $3.2 million in the first three months of 2021 despite (or, more likely, because of) being kicked off her House committees for her extremist rhetoric.

Of course, that’s chump change compared to the kind of bucks Trump can rake in. The Trump campaign and its joint committees with the GOP raised $255.4 million in the eight weeks after the election to contest the results. Little wonder that Trump is so determined to steer donors to his own political action committee rather than to party organs: He has tapped a geyser of cash, and he doesn’t want to share the spoils. The more outrageously he acts, the more money he brings in.

I’m no economic determinist, but if you want to understand how the right got the way it is, follow the money. The GOP highlights culture-war issues to shake down rank-and-file donors while cutting taxes to please wealthy donors. Republicans have won the presidential popular vote only once since 1988, but they can’t afford to broaden their appeal by embracing a more populist economic agenda or by toning down the divisive social messages because either move would jeopardize the flow of fundraising. The right-wing money machine has become the tail wagging the Republican elephant.

LOL, I think this is the first of many court cases against this psycho.

(Edit: not Weissleberg, Weissmann) now Weissmann was just on MSNBC (Melber) saying how the Mueller team did not have the information about Manafort's smuggle of data ending up in the Russian militaries hands, and that is why the very explicit phrase 'we do not have evidence' was in the report.

And so this is saying that link is actually made. And the question becomes who was it that kept it from the Mueller team or when was it discovered, or did the Biden team just uncover this in the last month or so. It was a good interview.

My money is on this guy:

Pro-Trump lawmakers form caucus promoting 'Anglo-Saxon political traditions'
Several House Republicans, led by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.), are forming a caucus that calls for a "common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions."

A policy platform for the group, which calls itself the America First Caucus, declares that "a certain intellectual boldness is needed" in order to "follow in President Trump’s footsteps, and potentially step on some toes and sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation."

The seven-page document, first obtained by Punchbowl News, is explicit in its nativist rhetoric and describes American culture as dominated by "Anglo-Saxon" and European influences.

"America is a nation with a border, and a culture, strengthened by a common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions. History has shown that societal trust and political unity are threatened when foreign citizens are imported en-masse into a country, particularly without institutional support for assimilation and an expansive welfare state to bail them out should they fail to contribute positively to the country," the platform states.

In a section describing its position on infrastructure, the caucus says it will "work towards an infrastructure that reflects the architectural, engineering and aesthetic value that befits the progeny of European architecture."

It adds that public infrastructure "must be utilitarian as well as stunningly, classically beautiful, befitting a world power and source of freedom."

No rush considering what Trump is doing to the republicans while he is loose. Dunno about the SDNY and individual #1, he might be doing state time in Sing sing for it and other shit though. Perhaps the feds wanna focus on treason and insurrection and if they throw the book at him for all his other crimes his base will think they are "going after him". He will probably end up doing life in a maximum security state prison (Sing sing) and would be eager to do federal time. In the end he's locked up, who keeps him in the cage doesn't really matter much. Getting answers and whoever was involved in conspiracies with him does matter though, to work for Donald was to conspire with him, it's a life long habit with Donald.

I wish I knew. This is a problem with living in historical times, you have to wait to see how everything falls into place.

here Rick Sycophant Scott is giving Spackle Boi his tiny bowl award:

so tiny.


he lost a lot of weight quickly; wonder why..well, he is almost 80..when old people become thin quickly they almost always die it seems considering there is no known cancer. golfing didn't do that.

Schuylaar predicts he may just up and die before we get our pound of flesh- don't be surprised. prepare yourself for that to possibly happen.

the good news? Russian sanctions are back and Diplomats have been kicked out of the US- more to come!..cheers old sport!:mrgreen:
