The Georgia indictment unveiled Monday night by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis just before midnight on Monday claims former President Donald Trump and 18 others pursued a “conspiracy” with mundane acts such as tweeting about hearings. In one passage, for example, the indictment states (original emphasis): “On or about the 3rd day of December 2020, DONALD JOHN TRUMP caused to be tweeted from the Twitter account @RealDonaldTrump, ‘Georgia hearings now on @OANN. Amazing!’ This was an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy.” Similar tweets are also included (original emphasis): On or about the 30th day of December 2020, DONALD JOHN TRUMP caused to be tweeted

This particular Georgia indictment strongly suggests the "crowded cabin scene" in the Marx Bros "A Night at the Opera."

In Georgia, specifically Fulton County, free speech is criminal. Who woulda thought that? Fani overthought her role. She made an arse of herself. But that's street cred amongst Democrats.

Calling on all Republican District Attorneys: Please indict Hillary, Biden and Obama for RICO, Conspiracy and Fraud concerning the Russia Collusion Hoax. There is far more evidence and real crimes there then what they are going after Trump for. There must be a Republican stronghold somewhere to do this and give the dems a taste of there own medicine.

If Chief Justice John Roberts had any guts, he would find a way to step in and overrule all these bogus indictments as being contrary to the First Amendment on their face. But we all know that he's compromised somehow and Obama has blackmailed him into timid subservience.

The Grand Jury members should be LOUDLY outed - as silly twits. They are going to be exposed as dumb puppets and made to look the fool by the DA. They will deserve every bit of the total embarrassment they will receive.

Gee. I'm surprised most of us weren't indicted. We voted, texted, emailed, supported, and watched broadcasts of President Trump's election efforts. In the words of the indictment: " This was an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy."

Last month, I received a summons for Fulton County jury duty in August. My first thought was that I was going to be on the grand jury convened for Trump. Alas, it turned out not to be. I would have a been a thorn in Fani's fanny during the entire process.

Billy Busch, the heir to the Anheuser-Busch company, has offered to buy the company back from its parent company, InBev, if it wants to sell. Anheuser-Busch sold to InBev in 2008, and Billy Busch wants to buy it back in order to “make that brand great again.” He made his offer while speaking to Tomi Lahren on her show Fearless. “When it comes to marketing and saying — moving away from a fratty base — is that InBev in general?

The small town of Goodhue, Minn., is set to lose its entire police force next Wednesday after ten officers announced their intention to resign over lack of funding. The entire force tendered their resignations during a city council meeting on Friday following news that police chief Josh Smith had submitted his resignation the previous day. “This is heartbreaking to us,” the town’s mayor, Ellen Anderson Buck, said following an emergency council meeting held on Monday to address the matter. Smith and one fellow officer will remain on active duty until this coming Wednesday. “Since the resignations have been handed in by our police department, it has been recommended
Fifth Circuit Strikes Down FDA Approval
of Mail-Order Abortion Pills

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals concluded on Wednesday that the abortion pill mifepristone should remain on the market but that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration went too far when it relaxed restrictions on the drug in 2016 and made the pills available via mail in 2021. But the 96-page ruling by the three-judge Fifth Circuit panel will likely not have any immediate practical effect because of a Supreme Court decision from earlier this year — a full stay in the legal case — that preserved full access to the pills until all of the appeals are played out. The Justice Department is expected to appeal Wednesday’s ruling.

Fulton County district attorney Fani Willis has proposed that the trial in the 2020 election case against former president Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants begin on March 4, 2024. Willis has also requested that the defendants be arraigned the week of September 5. The 19 defendants were indicted by Georgia grand jury earlier this week in connection with their alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential-election results in the Peach State. Trump is facing 13 felony charges, including conspiracy to commit forgery, filing false documents, Solicitation of Violation of Oath by Public Officer, and violating the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

Target suffered a significant drop in third quarter sales after consumers rebelled against the retailer for its scandalous LGBT-themed merchandise. “As we navigate an ever-changing operating and social environment, we are applying what we learned,” Brian Cornell, Target’s longtime chief executive, told reporters on a call. “Multiple economic crosscurrents are putting pressure on consumers.” Sales dipped in June after the Target rolled out its Pride collection, which featured pro-gender transition clothing such as a “tuck-friendly” swimsuit to obscure male genitalia and children’s items from a brand that sells Satanist-inspired products.

The Georgia indictment relates to Donald Trump’s (and 18 other defendants’) post-election efforts to reverse the apparent result of the 2020 election, in Georgia and elsewhere. That Trump made such attempts is not disputed. The question is, what did he do that was illegal? The indictment alleges a vast conspiracy, supported by 161 “overt acts,” that ultimately comprises Count I, a violation of Georgia’s RICO statute. The problem is that, with two exceptions, the “overt acts” are all legal. You can’t aggregate a series of legal acts and make them a crime by calling them a conspiracy.

“Democracy Dies in Darkness” is the (sometimes ironic) slogan of The Washington Post. But it’s also a fair description of what’s happening in Tennessee, as the state Legislature is being called to a special session even as local and federal officials withhold information that might be critical to its decision-making. Gov. Bill Lee ordered the special session to begin Aug. 21 in response to a March 27 mass shooting in which three adults and three children at the Covenant School, a Christian school in Nashville’s Green Hills neighborhood, were killed. The Nashville Tennessean article refers only to “a shooter.” The shooter was a female-to-male transgender shooter named Audrey Hale, aged 28

The former legal counsel for Al Gore who challenged – and lost – the presidential election results in 2000 says Gore's team did "the same thing" as what a Georgia prosecutor is claiming Trump committed as a crime. Donald Trump is facing a fourth indictment, this time from Fulton County, Georgia district attorney Fani Willis, involving allegations that Trump sought to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia. Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, speaking to Fox News Digital, criticized the pending indictment, calling Trump’s actions "very similar" to that of Al Gore’s legal strategy in the Bush v. Gore case that decided the 2000 presidential election.

Sure, “The Blind Side” made $309 million at the box office and Bullock won her long-awaited Academy Award, but many Black viewers “never cared much for it” according to The Root. Discerning critics also saw the movie, based on a best-selling book by Berkeley author Michael Lewis, as another Hollywood project that uses “White savior” tropes.

Never in the 235 years since the ratification of the Constitution has an administration premeditatively and blatantly prosecuted, on specious and conjecturable charges, the titular leader of the opposition party and leading candidate for president. And doing so while overtly flaunting their egregious actions to protect and cover-up for the incumbent president who has been exposed as potentially complicit in massive bribery and fraud. In any previous election cycle, these overt and unabashed actions would have been the death knell for the incumbent president’s campaign and his party.

The Fulton County clerk who released an indictment document displaying charges against former President Donald Trump before the grand jury voted said she inadvertently hit “send” instead of “save” in an interview with WSB-TV Tuesday. The court briefly posted a document on its website Monday afternoon listing 13 charges against the former president, Reuters first reported, which ultimately matched the charges released after the grand jury made its decision. The Office of the Fulton County Clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts initially responded to media reports by claiming the document was “fictitious,” which Clerk Ché Alexander told WSB-TV was “the best word I could come up with.”
