"I used to sell many condo's to the Thai. They are great people, great fighters and tremendous spirit. That's what this country needs, the spirit of Tai Condo. They are totally honored that I'm wearing their traditional clothes which were made in Japan by the way. The black belt that's the biggest... that's like the most amazing... they only hand these out to the greatest fighters like Trump. You couldn't get one Chris."

DC twitter is so weird, dude's mad because a rumor he believed doesn't turn out to be true and he blames who the rumor was about?

I'm all for the SC killing SR8 as savagely as possible but I don't mind them taking the time to do it properly, they're already expediating the case a huge amount and there's potentially a dangerous precedent to set with this law in having to climb to five votes.

President Biden will start turning asylum seekers back to Mexico as soon as next week under a reinstated Trump-era "Remain in Mexico" program — but will offer them the option to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, Axios has learned.

Under court orders, the president will officially undo a key immigration promise, which will force asylum-seekers to wait months in Mexico ahead of their immigration court hearings in the U.S. — as long as Mexico accepts them.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/they-need-to-take-responsibility-federal-judge-orders-hefty-fees-assessed-against-two-lawyers-who-filed-suit-challenging-2020-election/2021/11/22/b7ff5392-4be7-11ec-b0b0-766bbbe79347_story.html
Quote
A federal judge has ordered two Colorado lawyers who filed a lawsuit late last year challenging the 2020 election results to pay nearly $187,000 to defray the legal fees of groups they sued, arguing that the hefty penalty was proper to deter others from using frivolous suits to undermine the democratic system.

“As officers of the Court, these attorneys have a higher duty and calling that requires meaningful investigation before prematurely repeating in court pleadings unverified and uninvestigated defamatory rumors that strike at the heart of our democratic system and were used by others to foment a violent insurrection that threatened our system of government,” Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter wrote.

“They are experienced lawyers who should have known better. They need to take responsibility for their misconduct,” he wrote.
Quote
The two lawyers, Gary D. Fielder and Ernest John Walker, filed the case in December 2020 as a class action on behalf of 160 million American voters, alleging there was a complicated plot to steal the election from President Donald Trump and give the victory to Joe Biden.

The two argued that a scheme was engineered by the voting machine vendor Dominion Voting Systems; the tech company Facebook, its founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan; and elected officials in four states. They had sought $160 billion in damages.

Their case was dismissed in April. In August, Neureiter ruled that the attorneys had violated their ethical obligations by filing it in the first place, arguing that the duo had run afoul of legal rules that prohibit clogging the courts with frivolous motions and lodging information in court that is not true. At the time, he called their suit “the stuff of which violent insurrections are made,” alleging they made little effort to determine the truth of their conspiratorial claims before filing them in court. He ordered them to pay the legal fees of all of the many entities they had sued.

In a statement, Fielder called the order “unfathomable” and noted that the court’s sanctions and its dismissal of his original case are under appeal.

“We are not going to stop fighting for the rights of the people to vote in free and fair Presidential elections. This is the cross to die on,” he wrote.
Quote
What’s more, Neureiter wrote, the hefty fees were appropriate given “the severity of the violation” and because the lawyers had solicited donations from the “arguably innocent and gullible public” to fund their suit. He said he weighed whether the penalties could chill future legitimate lawsuits but concluded that “the repetition of defamatory and potentially dangerous unverified allegations is the kind of ‘advocacy’ that needs to be chilled.”

edit: from the judge:
Quote
In assessing the amount of the sanction, I also take into account the fact that Plaintiffs' counsel made a public appeal for financial contributions from arguably innocent and gullible members of the public in order to supposedly hire experts to support this case. . . . In reality, as disclosed at the hearing on sanctions, Plaintiffs' counsel hired no experts, either before or after filing the Complaints, and did not speak to any of the alleged experts that were being used in other cases around the country. Given the apparent lack of standing to bring this case—and its likely failure given the existing Supreme Court precedent on the issue of standing—as well as the failure to hire or speak to any expert witnesses to support the underlying factual assertions in the Complaints, this financial appeal to the public for financial contributions was arguably deceptive.

Checkmate conservs
Trump "runs" for President
Ted Cruz runs for President, so do about 20 other Republicans including Mike Lindell, Mike Flynn, Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo
MSM wants Trump's take on it, all day every day, considering he isn't running
After Pence bows out and Pompeo dies of OMEGA COVID, Lindell and Cruz are still tied. Cruz proposes a coin flip but Lindell does not trust such black magic

Trump announces "THE CANDIDATE" for TRUTH TV so the public and a panel of judges can decide if Lindell or Cruz gets the GOP nomination.
RINO's protest that this is against the rules but nobody cares what they think.

Meanwhile with the OMEGA COVID strain running rampant the Democrats have decided to mostly campaign in META.
They report on the engagement of voters with KAMAMETA the META avatar of their candidate Kamala Harris and METABUELA the avatar of VP candidate Hillary.

There’s also her willingness to speak truth to power… (wait for it) in clear, well considered logical arguments.

So there’s at least that difference.

For anyone confused, there's two abortion cases at the Supreme Court.

The Texas case (SR8) isn't really about abortion. Yes, it's about abortion and only exists probably because of abortion, but it's really about whether or not a state can effectively require civil penalties to use a constitutional right through an never intended technically limited loophole.

The Mississippi case (Dobbs) is just straightforward about can you restrict abortion before so many weeks. This has always been the one anti-abortion activists are truly focused on and are hoping will be used to overturn Roe.

The worst case scenario is that the Court first uses Dobbs to overturn Roe/Casey, and then because abortion is no longer a constitutional right they dismiss the SR8 case as not being relevant. (I suppose, technically, a worst case scenario is they uphold SR8 regardless, but I don't think the Court wants to go that far, they were all pretty skeptical at arguments. That's why the "actual" worst case scenario is they do what the Court likes to do and dismiss for any reason they can find which becomes an option if they gut Roe/Casey first.)

No one's perfect. There's no also perfect answer for the Israel situation. Other than eschaton fetishists and shared intel across our apparati, I'm unclear on why the USA supports Israel so blindly.

$$$ and votes

It's a significant voter base with influencers in places that matter to team blue and an important issue for evangelicals and a customer for American weaponry for team red.
For NATO it's also an important airfield in an area surrounded by feudal lords and dictators.

And finally like modern day Japan it is also one of the permanent Allied victory trophies out of World War 2 to show Democracy works.
If Israel is lost it would not only be a humanitarian disaster but also a significant blow to the morale of NATO.
With Hong Kong, Afghanistan fallen and Kosovo, Taiwan under threat, you can expect a big increase in support for Israel.

Conservative Twitter is freaking out about this (among a few other Biden clips today) but I actually love this version of Joe Biden (who so far continues to be the best President of my adult life, SOFT BIGOTRY OF LOW EXPECTATIONS), he's done this since at least the 80's (since that's as far back as I've investigated him) where he just makes up completely implausible stories while rambling, he did it all the time during his 2008 presidential campaign and it was great:

It's different from Trump's lying because I totally believe that Joe Biden believes in these stories while he's telling them whereas Trump just says shit.

His name was Mike I remember it well. A large black fella who was every bit as good a soldier as the japs we fought the week before in Okinawa.
