With so much going on in our world, we sometimes miss important issues. Please feel free to share any headlines or new developments we may have missed providing they come from reliable and credible sources.  In other words, please do not post any missed headlines form far right ‘news’ sources or regurgitate their Russian propaganda unless you’re trying to point out that the far-right extremist in our country and elsewhere actually believe their own BS or Russian disinformation.   We also ask that you provide a link to your source so folks can read it if they want. Please do not make any claims that you cannot factually validate or verify.

Updates:

  • U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said David Weiss, the federal prosecutor in Delaware who has led the criminal investigation of President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, will be appointed special counsel in the case.
  • Weiss was appointed by former President Donald Trump to become a U.S. Attorney in 2018 and began investigating Hunter Biden in 2019.

How to Trigger an Ignorant, Malignant, Illiterate, Racist and MAJORLY ‘Fullish’ {sic} MAGAt: Remind the moronic MAGAT that TRUMP appointed David Weiss, not President Obama 🙄 😂 🤡:

  • David Weiss, the Donald Trump-appointed US attorney who on Friday was named a special counsel leading the investigation into President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, has decades of experience as a federal prosecutor.
  • In 2018, the Senate confirmed Weiss to serve as US attorney for the District of Delaware. At the time of his nomination, he was serving as the acting US attorney for the district and was one of nine candidates whom Trump said shared his “vision for ‘Making America Safe Again.'”

Even The Orange Ass is Gaslighting this Issue and Trying to Deny His Appointment:

President Biden/Biden Administration:

2024 Election:

Two law professors active in the Federalist Society wrote that the original meaning of the 14th Amendment makes Donald Trump ineligible to hold government office.

Two prominent conservative law professors have concluded that Donald J. Trump is ineligible to be president under a provision of the Constitution that bars people who have engaged in an insurrection from holding government office. The professors are active members of the Federalist Society, the conservative legal group, and proponents of originalism, the method of interpretation that seeks to determine the Constitution’s original meaning.

The professors — William Baude of the University of Chicago and Michael Stokes Paulsen of the University of St. Thomas — studied the question for more than a year and detailed their findings in a long article to be published next year in The University of Pennsylvania Law Review.

****^^^ And the clown rapped at the Iowa State Fair. I will not play it because it’s just too cringy and annoying.

MAGAt Argument About Fake Electors-“What About Hawaii?”

The Rest of the Story that Ignorant MAGAts Fail to Tell: Why Hawaii 1960 isn’t the same as Trump 2020-DERP!

Although the three Democratic electors in Hawaii took the same action — signing false certificates — it does not appear they ever faced similar scrutiny, in part because of what happened next. Namely, that Hawaii’s recount ultimately did reverse the state’s election outcome.

Kennedy prevailed by an eyelash when the recount concluded on Dec. 28, 1960. A newly sworn-in governor certified the Kennedy victory and transmitted a new slate of Electoral College certificates — signed by the same three Democrats who falsely claimed to have won two weeks earlier.

Craven Assholes:

Report: U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville owns homes in Florida, not Alabama, spokesperson says he lives in Auburn

The Washington Post reported the former Auburn coach does not own property in Alabama — but has two properties in Florida.

Tuberville’s office told News 19 today Tuberville lives in Auburn, when he’s not in Washington D.C. and he has a vacation home in Florida.
