    Jacob T. Levy

    Probably worth emphasizing, over and over and over again, that the final vote in Kevin McCarthy’s one-vote margin for his bill to hold the full faith and credit of the United States hostage was provided by indicted fraud George Santos.

    Here’s the thing.

    I think Prince Harry would have left it alone if the Royal family had just protected his wife.

    That’s all he wanted.

    Now he’s suing the shit out of the tabloids and all their secrets will be coming out.

    This anti-immigrant bill is going to hit Florida hard and fast. 

    The undocumented aren’t sticking around for DeathSantis to even sign it. 

    Let the crops rot.

    Let them do the construction the best they can.

    And, let’s not even start on the restaurant industry. 

    Some have said that they will just use prison labor.

    Will remind folks that Alabama passed a similar law a few years ago, and tried the prison labor solution. 

    Didn’t work. 

    Oh well. 

    Just in time for DeathSantis to announce…the Florida economy craters.

    I loved Barbara Jean Spencer. This one hurts. I can’t remember a General Hospital without Bobbie Spencer.

    On behalf of our @GeneralHospital family, I am heartbroken to announce the passing of our beloved @JackieZeman. Just like her character, the legendary Bobbie Spencer, she was a bright light and true professional that brought so much positive energy with her to work.

    It’s simple, folks.

    Do you want four more years of that?

    If you don’t, pitch in to our campaign.

    The shitposting about Dianne Feinstein from the left reveals their addictions to performative poutrage and incessant complaints, a lack of basic human empathy, and a terrifyingly lower-than-average grasp of the process for judicial nominations.

    CNN is engineering this “so-called” town hall in a way that gives trump a built-in platform of sympathy and support. CNN is giving trump a nationally televised rally/pity party. I wouldn’t be surprised if the black man at every trump rally is seated somewhere up front. Shameful.

    We have seen this movie. It does not end well.

    Once again, we have folks not asking CAN they do this.

    But, they need to be asking….SHOULD they do this. 

    My lips are so pursed just reading this.

    Santos indictment unsealed. Seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, one count of theft of public funds, and two counts of making materially false statements to the House of Representatives.

    They arrested the woman who stole the machine gun in Texas.
    But, no recovery yet of the machine gun.
    Uh huh
    Uh huh

    When you see the videos of folks walking through Missouri streets with guns, just know, this is what the Missouri GOP wanted. They nullified fed gun laws. They pushed open carry. They rolled back conceal carry permits and training.

    They wanted a lawless state. This is on them.

    Giving Trump a town hall and covering an authoritarian like a normal politician is white supremacy in action. No matter what lazy bullshit they peddle, Republicans are always taken seriously by the corporate media and the red carpet is always out for them.

    Found this at another blog:

    The DOJ managed to subpoena all the evidence, convene a grand jury, put witnesses in front of it, and bring an indictment against George Santos, without us knowing any of it was even happening. We have no idea how many other House Republicans are in the process of being indicted.

    This does *not* mean that every House Republican you think is corrupt will magically be taken down. There’s a mile of difference between your standard of “obviously guilty” and something that a jury would actually convict someone on. DOJ doesn’t bother to bring hopeless charges.

    But the point is, just because the media hasn’t reported that any given House Republican is under DOJ criminal investigation, that is not in any way an indicator that the person isn’t under DOJ criminal investigation, or won’t end up indicted.

    There was one media report several months ago that the DOJ was looking into Santos’ finances, and that was basically it. The entire probe and indictment process played out without any of it ever making the headlines. A lack of headlines doesn’t mean anything.

    It’s also a great reminder that the Garland DOJ doesn’t shy away from indicting political figures. All the tweets you see about that are just gibberish made up by pundits who have no actual insight to offer. The DOJ indicts people when it thinks it’s built a winning case, period.

    Also keep in mind that *if* any House or Senate Republicans are getting indicted in relation to January 6th, it’ll likely come from Jack Smith, in the same timeframe Trump gets indicted. “If so and so hasn’t been indicted by now they never will be” is a very silly narrative.
