When does he NOT look “glum”?

Via Adam Klasfeld:

#Trump enters the courtroom for the start of his $250M civil fraud trial.

He's flanked by his lawyers, looking glum, and taking slow, deliberate steps before sitting at the defense table. 1/…

This concept that a vote for anyone else is a vote for Trump is clearly silly at best and undemocratic at worse.

No, a voter is entirely within their power to refuse to support #Biden without supporting #Trump either. To say otherwise is to disenfranchise the voter.

#Takei has never been a deep thinker, but we need to call out stuff like this in particular because of how undemocratic it is.

Folks should vote for the candidate they think best, all things considered, without having words put in their mouths like this.

Republicans have proven the King wears no clothes. We were all deluded into thinking a civil union was possible; one built on respect, dignity, and the rule of #law. America is broken at the hand of the unruly mob.

So be it. But before they elect their Czar, #Trump will face justice whether they like it or not. I do not care if he gains #political advantage. He stands accused. If there is no #justice, we will soon know it. A nation without justice is not worth saving. #scotus


#SCOTUS #Trump #News #Breaking

The Supreme Court said Monday that it will not take up a longshot challenge to Donald Trump’s eligibility to run for president because of his alleged role in the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol.

The case was denied without any comment or recorded vote.

HANDS OUT POPCORN!

New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron will hold a trial to determine damages, after finding Trump committed real estate fraud for years.

Engoron ruled Trump inflated the value of properties and treated square-footage as subjective.

Like a game of Monopoly, Donald Trump may be forced to sell off his iconic properties under a New York judge's ruling that he committed fraud for years while building his real estate empire

In a late Friday filing, Jack Smith Insists a Trump Gag Order Is Needed Due to Attacks on Former Allies and the Court

Trump threatened to Execute General Milley.

Smith also points to Trump allegedly purchasing “a gun in violation of the law,” or seeking “to benefit from his supporters’ mistaken belief that he did so”

Dear Reader,

If you have some time, let's read the 45 day Republican spending bill they are voting on today.

I did a document search and the word "Ukraine" does not appear a single time in the document!

Russian Republicans want to cut off Ukraine funding completely.

You can read the full document here...

#Trump #Stochastic #Terrorist

Scientific American put it this way:

Dehumanizing and vilifying a person or group of people can provoke what scholars and law enforcement officials call stochastic terrorism, in which ideologically driven hate speech increases the likelihood that people will violently and unpredictably attack the targets of vicious claims. At its core, stochastic terrorism exploits one of our strongest and most complicated emotions: #disgust.

House Republicans are fucking lunatics - I apologize for swearing, but I'm damn angry!

The House Republicans narrowly approved a defense spending bill stripped of aid for Ukraine and loaded with controversial provisions that include restricting abortion access for troops and slashing pay for the defense secretary to $1.

Now the New York State Court of Appeals has ordered the #fraud trial against #Trump to proceed, starting Monday, some observations about the terrific opinion the trial judge, Arthur Engoron, handed down earlier this week. Full text of opinion is at https://int.nyt.com/data/documenttools/trump-judges-ruling/ce6de7d636227e1b/full.pdf. Law has long had to grapple with falsehood , deceit, and gross inaccuracy of all kinds. Deployed by able jurists, it is well up to the task of dealing with Trump tactics in a way that other fields are not. 1/ #LawFedi


🤦‍♀️ Trump's gullibles must be footing the bills here.

' #Trump is suing a former MI6 officer & intel consultancy he founded, high court records in Eng show.

TFG, who is mired in lawsuits in his own country, is bringing a data protection claim against Orbis Business Intelligence & founder Christopher Steele, who previously ran the secret intel service’s Russia desk.

A 2-day hearing for the legal action is set to start on 16 Oct" #legal

Raw Story:
Trump's ex-lawyer might not testify due to threats: 'I don't want to meet my maker'

"I think it's incumbent now upon government...

are we going to wait until something, God forbid, happens, and then everyone is going to say thoughts and prayers to the family? No. He should not be permitted to do what he's doing.

He's threatening judges... prosecutors...witnesses. This is all obstruction of justice and witness tampering..."

So the guy (1) unanimously adjudged a rapist by a federal jury, (2) whose namesake company was convicted of tax fraud, has now (3) been adjudged to have committed a multi-billion dollar fraud over the past decade.

Meanwhile, the same guy has 91 criminal counts outstanding, and judges are imposing gag orders and mob-boss style jury secrecy rules to protect against witness or jury intimidation.

Yet #Trump is still the overwhelming frontrunner in the self-proclaimed law & order party.


None of the family-owned #pharmacies in the #Trump worshipping town I am still living in will order the new #covid #vaccine

"I can’t speak to what lurks in the hearts of political reporters and editors, but one has to wonder why there isn’t more coverage about Trump musing about sentencing the nation’s highest ranking general to death than, say, the age of the current president…

Oddly, Trump’s dangerous rant was not treated as the major news it absolutely should have been."

The big story here is that millions of Americans — perhaps approaching half — have lined up for the coming elections to say, "Give me more of that. I want more of the corruption and crime, the fascism and faux morality, the immigrant-bashing, woman-bashing, race-baiting, gay-hating. More, please!"

And white Christians are heavily represented in that group — to their great shame.

"Even before the trial officially starts, the ruling handed New York Attorney General Letitia James a near total victory, meaning that next week’s trial will mostly focus on damages that could pulverize whatever is left of Trump’s many business entities and bank accounts."

As AP reports, "Judge Arthur Engoron, ruling in a civil lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, found [yesterday] that Trump and his company deceived banks, insurers and others by massively overvaluing his assets and exaggerating his net worth on paperwork used in making deals and securing loans."

Engeron found that this fraud went on for years and the evidence is so overwhelming there's no need to go to trial.
