Don't make any vacation plans in August. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is clearly signaling that indictments in the Coup Plotter conspiracy in Georgia are coming down in August, and it will not just be Coup leader Donald Trump. Willis is signaling a RICO count that will attempt to take down the entire criminal enterprise in Georgia, including state party leaders involved in the fake GQP electors scheme, and Trump campaign officials and lawyers. This is what special

What Will Be Kari Lake’s Next Act?

Kari Lake lost her final bid to overturn the AZ 2022 election of Katie Hobbs. The matter is sufficiently analyzed elsewhere that I don't feel any need to do so here. I'll just say that her legal team sunk any chance she might have had to meet their evidentiary burden when they decided to pursue the case as a Reyes claim. That's exactly the context in which the Court analyzed the testimony and found it wanting under ANY evidentiary

The Arizona Mirror reports, Citing ‘plenary powers,’ GOP leader claims a non-binding resolution bans Arizona election machines: Claiming that a non-binding resolution overrides state law [freakin' moron], an Arizona [QAnon/]Republican state senator on Monday declared that Arizona counties are barred from using machines to count ballots — an assertion that was quickly shot down by elections officials, the state’s attorney general and county leaders.

The Media Enables The GQP Economic Terrorists’ Hostage Taking Over The Federal Debt Ceiling

On Friday, the "insider access" media Politico reported, Biden’s 14th Amendment message to progressives: It ain’t gonna happen: Senior Biden officials have told progressive activists and lawmakers in recent days that they do not see the 14th Amendment — which says the “validity of the public debt” cannot be questioned — as a viable means of circumventing debt ceiling negotiations. They have argued that doing so would be risky and destabilizing, according to three people familiar with the discussions.

MAGA Economic Terrorists posing as House Republicans have shown they will not budge much right now (or maybe ever) on their unreasonable demands to cut domestic spending (but leave defense spending at high or higher levels and the Trump tax cuts for the rich and largest corporations) in their negotiations with the White House on raising the debt ceiling. No surprise there. For Republicans making life easier for a child who needs a quality Head Start Program or KidsCare

The Four GQP Freedoms Are A Dystopian, Un-American Nightmare

In his 1941 State of the Union Address to Congress, with World War II underway in Europe and the Pacific, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proposed four fundamental freedoms that all people should have. His "four essential human freedoms" included some phrases already familiar to Americans from the Bill of Rights, as well as some new phrases: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. These symbolized America's war aims and gave the American people a mantra to hold
