“Be there. Will be wild!”
Just in: Prosecutors were "focused on establishing an organized conspiracy" between Trump, Trump allies and pro-Trump organizer Brandon Straka during their conversations with Straka. While Straka says denied a conspiracy existed, here is evidence that investigators were looking.

Nina Totenberg reports that (1) the Chief Justice asked his colleagues to mask up out of respect for Sotomayor’s health concerns, (2) only Gorsuch refused, and (3) his refusal forced Sotomayor to participate in arguments and conference remotely. npr.org/2022/01/18/107342837…

From Dr. King’s March 1968 sermon “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution.” “[S]poken and unspoken, acknowledged and denied, subtle and sometimes not so subtle—the disease of racism permeates and poisons a whole body politic.”

Stewart Rhodes and a number of other Oath Keepers eventually joined as plaintiffs on this lawsuit, which was modeled on a plan laid out on Jan 5 by former Roger Stone pal Jerome Corsi. Rhodes had even signed Corsi’s proposal
The Acting President of the Oathkeepers is one of the lawyers who, last January, filed a suit seeking to have the President, Vice President, and most of Congress replaced with stewards. And cited, as precedent, the Lord of the Rings. No, I'm not kidding.

“I’m not racist but N-word whoops”
Nick Fuentes declares that Groypers "are the only ones that aren't racist" before mocking Steve Bannon as a "fat r*tard" who is trying to "flood the zone with ni**er votes." After dropping the N-word, Fuentes acknowledges "that one slipped out."

Guessing you gotta be pretty comfortable with that word to accidentally say it on camera, on your own show, after establishing the specific context that you’re not racist

MTG also personally benefited, if slightly, from her own brinkmanship with the debt—she helped push rates up

NEW: While Marjorie Taylor Greene was ranting about the debt & threatening to shut down the government over the debt ceiling she made her biggest personal investment on record—up to half a million. I bet you’ll never guess what she bought. @thedailybeast thedailybeast.com/marjorie-t…

If I were an Oath Keeper about to storm the Capitol, I would not have posted "Here is a link to a web based chat, uses AES256 encrypted database. Could be useful for JANUARY 6 COMMUNICATIONS" under the name "oathkeeper4lyfe" on TheDonald before posting my hotel room. However.

Read to the end.
So, remember how Tucker Carlson had a Jan. 6 lawyer on his show who declared that a Trump fanatic on the front lines of the battle with police at the U.S. Capitol was “clearly a law enforcement officer” who was only dressed up as a Trump fanatic?
