Be strong. The kids will forget about it in a month. Literally. Their brains don't work so good no more. 

Doubtful. So many kids are obsessed with it these days. Two teenage cousins of mine spend way more time focusing on it than not just their school work, but these expensive plays they're cast in. They claim they want to be actors, but TikTok is their god.

The Trump charges probably are weak as hell but just getting him through a trial should be interesting.  Do we really think he can get through a trial without trying to bribe or intimidate a witness, or jury tampering?

Would he be charged if he did do that and they had the evidence?

Demo-Rats Lie!

Oh, yeah, but imo that’s earlier, almost the standard first response. Everybodydiesit doesn’t come out until the thing they have been swearing up and down is a malicious liberal media lie to make baby Jesus cry has been proven beyond all doubt. Then, and only then, is Trump relegated to ‘they are all as bad as each other’.

But it works. In a country full of angry and dissatisfied people they're going to turn to, if nothing else, what makes them feel good. Or at the very least virtuous. 

He should have been charged with something by the senate and congress. Do something then and you don't have to worry about this shit now.  

People died!!!

The fact that McConnel and crew allowed this coup-starting murderizer to walk away with political cover is proof that the party will never actually stand up to him. 

China invading Russia or Russia invading the Baltics is fantasy land shit. 

Ukraine is real. Trump is real. Russia is real. 

Do I really have to step out on a limb to make this point? My god, he doesn't have to pull out of NATO. He just has to say "Look, I love the yukrane. I love the yukrane, ok? Nobody was tougher on Russia than me. That's why, that's why you'll notice that the yukranes were free when I was precedent Ok?" and the crowd will be like...

"Huh?" Then they'll be like "Whatever, yeah! MAGA MAGA MAGA!" 

"But look, peeple! The Demo-chats have runed the enonomy! And they've scared away all of the joobs. Ok, where are all the joobs? I can't find 'em because they're all scared away... scared away to Ghiiiinah. Scary scary Ghiiiiinah, folks... Joobs like Ghiiiiinah, they like 'em.

But I LOvE the yukrane, peeple. LovE the yukrane. 

That's why I lost Vladdy's number, and picked up Daddy's. That's right, folks. I'm not signing anymore aid. I've picked up the Red Phone. There's a Red Phone, did you know that peeple? I've picked up the Red Phone and we're calling for Peace in the East." 

I mean it basically writes itself.

Even though since I've been retired as a professor for two and a half years and so don't know what social media college undergrads are using around Omaha today, I believe this statement just from seeing more than one report lately about how incredibly important BookTok has become in driving book sales.  I have a "membership" at Booksamillion.com, and I'd say about a third of the emails I get from them these days mention BookTok.

First I'm even hearing about BookTok.

What's being done re Manhattan Criminal Court for Tuesday -- ever since the indictment announcement, as you will well imagine, death threats and other kinds have been flowing into to everyone via fone and email and twits, and all social media, of course.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/apr/01/donald-trump-mar-a-lago-events-suspended

But oddly, it's only the accused criminal about whom there is concern that 'he be kept safe from harm.'

Meanwhile on another forum, some Christian Front fight for Trump guy is having a meltdown.

I'll put the thing in spoilers as to not clog the thread with me trolling him.

 

Spoiler

Christian Front Guy (CFG):DAY THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY 3/30/23

I call on all DA's in this country of ours who are Conservative/Republicans to begin with indictments on the Leftists/Commie/Socialists who are intent on bringing our Republic down. They have shot the first salvo, we have no choice but to fight back with the same determination. They can start with BLM and the killings they did against the police and all the millions of dollars of destruction at their hands during their riots of 2020. Also against ANTIFA, The Clintons/Soros/And those who are backing the Biden Crime family. Enough with the pathetic/soft press releases of fake outrage, these silly games need to stop. Do we love our country?? Are we willing to fight for it?? God Bless a leader like President Trump!!! TRUMP 2024!!!!

 

Me: In other news.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/apr/01/republican-donor-anton-lazzaro-sex-trafficking-convicted

The political prosecution of Republicans pedophiles is getting out of hand.

 

FCG: since you like chatting about pedophiles, going to take your kids to the next white House Drag Queen party!?? That will be so cool and educational for your loved ones!!

 

Me: There's a White House Drag Queen Party?
Cool.

And I have got zero problem with drag performers. And I also fail to see the harm in kids seeing them perform. *shrug*

Ok, my favorite parody character.

Let's get some basic definitions right.

Drag Queens = men dressing up and doing a performance as women. Quality of their performance may vary, some are more or talented than others. Musically usually not my cup of tea (I don't enjoy Gloria Gaynor or Donna Summers musically. But each to their own.)

Pedophile: someone engaging in sexual acts with minors.

Those are two pretty unrelated things.
One has to do with sex with kiddies, the other one not so much.

 

CFG: (reacting to a link by another poster) Great photo gallery, it's these people that our Conservative/Republican DA's need to start throwing indictments at, just like they do to our side!!, enough is enough, spear me the phony press releases garbage, that doesn't amount to a hill of beans, let's start throwing our DA's at them and bringing indictments!! Quit playing DEFENSE take offense and take back our country from the evil doers!! We can't wait till November of 2024 we must act

 

Me: It's always funny, when the mask of those Christian front characters drops and all you see is a sad little Nazi.

CFG: You have no problem bringing your kids to the White House for Drag Queen parties???? Good Lord, hope you do not have children! Guess you do not read your Bible much hey? This type of behavior is forbidden, but I'm sure you already now about that, but just thumb your nose at the Lord?? I'll keep you in my prayers, good luck !!

 

CFG: Nazi's combat decent, just like Commies/Leftists/Taliban China Joe. They LOCK up their political opponents!!! RING A BELL??? That's what they do in China/Russia/Cuba/North Korea/Venezuela..and it's happening here in the USA!!. We Conservative /Republicans are at the opposite end of that spectrum, but you should already know that, since you have so much political education!!;-)

 

Me: Ok, my little fake Christian.

Now give me the bible parts that prohibit drag parties.

Note. You shall not lie with another man does not apply here, as drag queen performances and sex are not the same thing.

No man shall sing Gloria Gaynor, like I said, I can get onboard with that, but that's presumably not in the bible.

You might do milions of children a favor by outruling the reading of plays by shakespeare tho. Back then a lot of the female parts were played by male actors. So down with Shakespeare, your god commands it!

 

I think it broke him, or he is still looking for the bible passages about drag parties.

Hee Hee.  The latest? tRumpista attorney want to have the trial moved out of Manhattan Criminal Court to somewhere -- on Staten Island.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-04-01/trump-indictment-latest-lawyers-may-ask-for-move-out-of-manhattan?

 

Not at all surprising. Trump is one of the most well known and most hated people in Manhattan. It's an interesting and novel defense to be able to use vote share as an indication of jury prejudice.

Ah, the old 'I'm such a well known liar and crook that nobody could possibly evaluate my defence with an open mind' line. It's right up there with 'the judge is biased against me because I've been publicly harassing them on social media'.

And yes, it's "uniparty" - this is one time your whining about the "establishment" is actually entirely accurate.  

Warms my heart.  Charlie Stross of all people is probably how I first started thinking this way.  He posted about, IIRC, the greys, who were basically the British uniparty.  Now he never made the connection as far as I saw that Trump (and to a lesser extent Sanders) were reactions against the same alignment in the US, but we all have our blinders.

I'll be brief here, but my contention has never been that the military will be reduced in funding. As we have shown for a while we do not need an active war to justify any defense spending, even when the military itself says it doesn't need it. Ukraine ain't an excuse for large amounts of funding. Trump would argue that money should go to mcbigski to enforce whatever local pogroms he wants to do, but he wouldn't be reducing it. He'd just be telling Ukrainians to get fucked while.ordering bombings of immigrant caravans.

Well I'd definitely prioritize air strikes against left lane Prius drivers well ahead of immigrant caravans, but alas, this is only theoretical.

Joe Manchin going on Meet The Press to say he might run as an independent in 2024 is high comedy. Cannot believe this moron has so much influence. I'd rather have my uncle Terry in charge of things and trust me, I don't want his racist ass in charge of anything.

Evidently the gub of North Dakota, Doug Burgum, is pondering running for the r potus nom -- schmoozing with Iowans today, according to the Fargo Forum.

https://www.inforum.com/opinion/mcfeely-burgum-building-presidential-campaign-four-iowans-at-a-time

So far then, we've got the FL meanball <stet>, the impeached (twice), indicted criminal-grifter, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley, the had-to-avoid-lynch mob-of-his-boss VP, probably the TX abbott turd, anti-woke big techie Vivek Ramaswamy, and so many others, like Pompeo, Sununu, Youngkin, Bolton, Noem, and surely others, who all believe it will be ME -- how in heck can a nice guy from Nodak even dream he can compete with such a line-up?  I mean, he doesn't even have a tRump granted nickname of denigration?  :lol:

O lordessa, it's just come to mine attention there's yet another one dreaming of the rethug nom for potus -- ex-gub of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson!
