Here is what I notice. Laura Ingraham said almost the same thing this week. (Screenshot in the next Tweet) We can conclude that "They couldn't beat me at the polls, so they want to lock me up," will be his public relations messaging as the DOJ moves closer to him. 1/
Trump: We are a nation that has weaponized its law enforcement like never before against the opposing political party. They send their law enforcement out to get them because they can't beat us at the polls so let's lock them up.

Any person watching TikTok videos on full tilt volume with no headphones while on a plane should be permanently banned from U.S. air travel. They clearly don't realize that we live in a society.

I have no problem with countries changing their names. But I do think that unlike when it’s a person and you should call them by whatever they want, when it comes to countries other people can call it whatever they want npr.org/2022/08/05/111562702…

Where does it stop. @JohnLeguizamo? Is there no bottom to Hollywood's depravity about ethnicity?

What if Tropic Thunder came out today with Robert Downey, Jr. playing Kirk Lazarus playing Sgt. Lincoln Osiris? The meltdown on this website would be breathtaking comedy gold.

Dear @JohnLeguizamo: Wait until you see Al Pacino as Tony Montana in Scarface. Wait until you see James Caan playing Sonny in The Godfather. Wait until you see Linda Hunt playing Billy Kwan in "The Year of Living Dangerously." This shit's gonna **blow** **your** **mind**, man.
John Leguizamo took to Instagram to speak out against the recent casting of James Franco as Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro in the upcoming independent film, “Alina of Cuba.” bit.ly/3d9dBV8

For those who are not following CPAC: They built a jail and put an actor in it. He’s pretending to be a punished January 6 attacker and he’s weeping. Marjorie Taylor Greene then made a grand entrance into the jail to offer maternal comfort and prayer to the actor.
Replying to @misstessowen
Then … Marjorie Taylor Greene showed up and got in the cage with him

Please note the language of the signs: They are in English. These signs are not for domestic consumption. This is astroturfing Beijing style and it's really comically sad, @MFA_China. You are a totalitarian state and the best you could do was 16 yahoos?

**Just because you say something is true does not make it true.** Failure to understand this fact are the central problem we have in the United States today. "Doing your own research" does not yield any appreciation of actual reality.
This video is a comfort to me.

The GOP likes to think that Trump Populism grew its coalition. But the country is still split 50/50, as it was before. All he did was swap college educated suburban women for non-college educated blue collar men.

Just when I think we as a nation couldn't possibly be any dumber, we go and do something like this, and TOTALLY REDEEM OURSELVES!
In 1960, the Navy considered launching and landing seaplanes on aircraft carriers. The proposal was to cover the flight deck in rubber and spray water over it. Seaplanes would be able to hook an arresting gear and skid to stop, then slide during catapult shots. #FunFactFriday

“For some it’s very black and white: you’re pro-life with no exceptions or you’re pro-choice with no restrictions,” said Indiana GOP Sen. Kyle Walker. “When you are in the gray area, you are forced to reconcile in your own mind where your own limits are.” nytimes.com/2022/08/05/us/po…

Assume climate change is a critical problem we must address nationally and internationally. Do you really believe calling an intense rainstorm and freak lightning strike a "climate warning" will convince regular people? They will shake their heads ruefully and laugh at you.

It’s like Lincoln said...Struggle is the father of all things. It is not by the principles of humanity that man lives or is able to preserve himself above the animal world, but solely by means of the most brutal struggle.
Palin: It’s like Lincoln said.. We’re not going to be destroyed from foreign forces coming on in, it’s going to be from within if we allow things that are so anti-constitutional to be able to for instance usurp the balance of power

Alex Jones still faces Round Two of damages.
Replying to @washingtonpost
$4.1 million in compensatory damages is a huge amount. Anything much higher would just be reduced on appeal. This also doesn't include punitive damages. Still to be decided.

Dear @barnes_law: When you or your representatives willfully give information to someone, it is not a seizure. Government receiving information freely obtained is not a seizure.
Alex Jones issues an emergency statement from his lawyer that the J6 Committee has violated his 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendment rights by “seizing and stealing” his phone records that were obtained due to his own incompetence at his trial.
