There was overwhelming evidence implicating Trump the day it happened. There was overwhelming evidence of other crimes that were committed by the Trump administration before January 6th. Evidence isn't the problem - enforcement is.

Told ya.
Don't be misdirected to what happened in the car with Trump. Pence's USSS detail and the texts to them are the texts of most interest.
When gas prices go up, please have your arguments ready to show that it was the Saudis.

Whoa.
I know my mom and I would really appreciate if my father Herschel Walker stopped lying and making a mockery of us. You’re not a “family man” when you left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move over 6 times in 6 months running from your violence.

We tried to tell you he wasn't on our side.
Ukraine-Russia Peace: - Redo elections of annexed regions under UN supervision. Russia leaves if that is will of the people. - Crimea formally part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Khrushchev’s mistake). - Water supply to Crimea assured. - Ukraine remains neutral.

Steel rain has arrived.
#Ukraine: Ukraine received new rockets for HIMARS/M270- here we can see a pod of M30A1 guided rockets. M30A1 differs from previously seen M31A1/A2 by an alternative warhead with 182000 preformed spheroid steel/tungsten fragments and is designed to be used against soft targets.
This is - and I can not stress this enough if you are on the west coast of FL - not good. This is going to tear up wherever it hits. If landfall happens just north of Tampa, it's going to be a generational disaster.

Latest tracks have it just south of Tampa - which would be better (Sorry Sarasota and Venice), but I'm also not liking the idea that this might cross FL and reemerge into the Atlantic. It staying a hurricane all the way across is a possibility if that happens.
Send them everything they need.

#Russia on 🔥: Novokuznetsk Iron and Steel Plant owned by Putin's mafioso Roman #Abramovich caught fire in the evening of September 24th. The plant employed 11,500 people in Siberia. "Leading manufacturer of rail products in Russia and the only manufacturer of tram rails."

(An aside to tell you how strong he was - I once saw him take the engine out of a 62 Ford econoline van my Dad hired him to work on by reaching over and picking up the unbolted inline 6 engine, with no hoist.)

He hated the skinheads. The story got relayed to him, and he decided he'd go to the football game that Friday. I didn't go - I'd had enough fear and humiliation for one week to risk more. I am told that it was a short fight behind the bleachers, and I wasn't harrased again.

I still decided to leave soon thereafter for a fine arts high school myself, which I promptly flunked out of and then ended up at a public high school in the city. I commuted 40 minutes each way daily with my father, instead of going to the rural/suburban school 10 minutes away.

As people have moved in over the years, that school has gotten more integrated and the power of the fascists in the community has waned enough that my kids have been able to go there, but bullies are still an issue - they just aren't as overtly racist. They don't run the school.

Did a beat down behind the bleachers help turn the tide against the racists? Probably not much, but the idea that nazi beliefs were not to be tolerated grew during the 90s a lot and progress was made in pushing those abhorrent beliefs back under the rock they came from.

The punk and grunge scenes were particularly good about ostacizing skinheads, making sure they weren't welcome wherever they went.

Lately the tolerance of those beliefs has gone back up. The Trump presidency brought out many more overt racists. There are more rebel flags on pickups again, and more neo-nazi groups are openly spouting nazi propaganda. They think their beliefs are tolerated again.

This time is different though. They aren't the majority really anywhere any more, they are just the loudest voices. We outnumber them. We're bigger, and smarter. We must speak out though. We have to risk being scared. We have to work with good people with more power.

We have to beat them back, and yes - when necessary, we're going to have to take them behind the bleachers and make sure they have to think twice before they terrorize others. These are bullies, and sometimes the only way to stop a bully is force.

Humiliate and ostracize them into silence if you can, but be prepared to punch a Nazi when needed, or find someone who will.
