  1. Episode 5 and 6 of Silo have picked up, but I still find my interest waning a bit. ETA: Although the final scene was a nice reveal. OK, maybe I am still intrigued.
  2. I just watched the 2018 mini series A Very English Scandal. Written by Russell T. Davies, directed by Stephen Frears, it was quite enjoyable (despite the serious subject matter/ background).
  3. Most definitely. And if, against all odds, 45 ended up in jail, the next Republican president would pardon him, too. For the sake of the office, and healing, yadda yadda... Unless it's himself, then it would be Witch Hunt etc.
  4. Also, Musk is in an official campaign video. Which is so bad it's kind of hilarious. But anyway, you could almost think he was running for VP rather than being his sponsor/ donor/ daddy/ whatever. ETA: It may not be an official video, but one made by sympathizers. Will check tomorrow, I'm tired.
  5. In case someone still cares, there are some mildly interesting new insights into the documents case: - Two of Donald Trump’s employees moved boxes of papers the day before FBI agents and a prosecutor visited the former president’s Florida home to retrieve classified documents in response to a subpoena — timing that investigators have come to view as suspicious ... (no kidding, Sherlock!) - Trump and his aides also allegedly carried out a “dress rehearsal” for moving sensitive papers even before his office received the May 2022 subpoena, ... - Prosecutors in addition have gathered evidence indicating that Trump at times kept classified documents in his office in a place where they were visible and sometimes showed them to others... https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2023/05/25/trump-classified-documents-mar-a-lago/ I'm sure someone is very close to moving towards inching closer to ponder an indictment, for something or other, any month or year now.
  6. Breaking, acc. to MSNBC: DeSatan to announce his candidacy on twitter, w Elon Musk. Oooh, Citizen T. will be furious!
  7. If you mean the person working for her, I think we saw her with Holsten before.
  8. Episode 4 was a bit of a letdown for me, but I'm still onboard with Silo. I usually like quieter, more character-driven episodes, but this one felt a bit weak and for the first time, their withholding information from the viewer felt artificially drawn out, if that makes any sense.
  9. Well, from what we know, it has been happening for years, and they didn't want to do anything about it. But yes, I'm sure they're worried about people making the connection now.
  10. No, is it any good? I came across it on another show. ETA: Looked it up... heard about it before.
  11. You can always skip topics you're not interested in. For everyone else, just something funny to read. Another Pete Buttigieg fluff piece; this one is so ott it reads like satire, but apparently isn't. Needless to say there are no critical questions about any real policies on transportation or anything. Pete Buttigieg Loves God, Beer, and His Electric Mustang Sure, the US secretary of transportation has thoughts on building bridges. But infrastructure occupies just a sliver of his voluminous mind. The curious mind of Pete Buttigieg holds much of its functionality in reserve. Even as he discusses railroads and airlines, down to the pointillist data that is his current stock-in-trade, the US secretary of transportation comes off like a Mensa black card holder who might have a secret Go habit or a three-second Rubik’s Cube solution or a knack for supplying, off the top of his head, the day of the week for a random date in 1404, along with a non-condescending history of the Julian and Gregorian calendars. As Secretary Buttigieg and I talked in his underfurnished corner office one afternoon in early spring, I slowly became aware that his cabinet job requires only a modest portion of his cognitive powers. Other mental facilities, no kidding, are apportioned to the Iliad, Puritan historiography, and Knausgaard’s Spring—though not in the original Norwegian (slacker). Fortunately, he was willing to devote yet another apse in his cathedral mind to making his ideas about three mighty themes—neoliberalism, masculinity, and Christianity—intelligible to me. The article is very, very long, but then his mind is obviously a very large cathedral. He's an intellectual giant gracing us with his presence and his deep, deep thoughts. https://www.wired.com/story/pete-buttigieg-interview-god-beer-electric-mustang/
  12. DC Police Intel Chief Was Supplicant To Proud Boys Leader, Prosecutors Say It’s good to have friends in high places. Federal prosecutors on Friday highlighted a nexus between a top intelligence official in D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department and Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, a relationship which continued from July 2019 through the Jan. 6 insurrection. Former Metropolitan Police Department officer Shane Lamond, who supervised the intelligence branch of the department’s homeland security bureau, faces four counts stemming from allegations that he fed information to Tarrio about law enforcement investigations into him and then lied about it to federal agents. the indictment lays out multiple situations in which Lamond allegedly initiated contact with Tarrio, feeding him sensitive information about investigations into the Proud Boys and Tarrio specifically. At times, Lamond apparently suggests that he sympathizes with Tarrio politically. After the November 2020 election was called, Lamond allegedly wrote to Tarrio saying, “Hey brother, sad, sad news today. You all planning anything?” ... Prosecutors say that Lamond went on to provide critical details about the investigation to Tarrio, including what evidence investigators had gathered tying Tarrio to the burning, when a charging decision was to be made and, critically, that a warrant for Tarrio’s arrest had been issued. ... The relationship purportedly continued through January 6. Lamond allegedly continued to feed Tarrio information, post-indictment, about federal investigations into the Proud Boys after the insurrection. https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/dc-police-intel-chief-was-supplicant-to-proud-boys-leader-prosecutors-say Dude has been on paid leave...
  13. Here's a conspiracy theory for everyone who thinks Finland was robbed!
  14. Feinstein’s primary caregiver: Pelosi’s daughter A quiet caretaking arrangement has raised questions about whether Nancy Pelosi has the ailing senator’s personal interests at heart. ... Prowda, the eldest child of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has come to play in Feinstein’s life as the 89-year-old has dealt with the absence of her deceased husband, the departure of trusted staffers, a nasty case of shingles and spiraling concerns about her fitness for office. Not only did Prowda escort Feinstein around Capitol Hill last week, she was again at her side yesterday, helping aides surround the senator in a Capitol hallway as a reporter tried to speak to her. Multiple people familiar with the arrangement say it’s only the most visible part of a quiet but critical role the Pelosi family has played in helping to take care of the ailing senator, both in Washington and San Francisco. ...it has also raised uncomfortable questions about whether Nancy Pelosi’s political interests are in conflict with Feinstein’s personal interests. The intrigue surrounds the future of Feinstein’s seat. Pelosi has endorsed Rep. Adam Schiff, her longtime protégé and former hand-picked House Intelligence Committee chair, to succeed Feinstein after her sixth and final term ends next year.... if Feinstein were to bow to pressure and retire early, Schiff’s advantage could disappear. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) has pledged to appoint a Black woman to serve out her term, and one of Schiff’s declared opponents, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), would fit the bill. “If DiFi resigns right now, there is an enormous probability that Barbara Lee gets appointed — thus, it makes it harder for Schiff,” one Pelosi family confidant told Playbook, adding that the relationship between Pelosi, her daughter and the senator is “being kept under wraps and very, very closely held.” ...“The political thinking is that if DiFi stays as long as possible, it helps Schiff as well.” (...) https://www.politico.com/news/2023/05/18/dianne-feinstein-senate-resign-retire-pelosi-schiff-lee-00097595
  15. According to an as of yet unconfirmed article by Drudge Report, Fox fired Laura Ingraham. Nothing will change there ofc, but it still couldn't have happened to a nicer person. Bumped to primetime: Watters (toldya), Gutfield. Heir of F*cker's spot: Hannity (haha, good luck with that). “TOP SOURCE TELLS DRUDGE: ‘IT’S OUR BOLDEST AND MOST FEARLESS LINE-UP EVER’…” https://www.mediaite.com/news/just-in-matt-drudge-teases-bombshell-about-fox-news-schedule-shakeup/ https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2023/5/17/2169892/-Prime-time-news-at-Fox-has-a-shakeup-apparently-Laura-Ingraham-was-fired
