Jeanine Pirro was a county judge from January 1, 1991 to May 1993, when she resigned.

I know Americans like the custom of a courtesy title for ex-whatevers, but I think she exceeded the courtesy years ago.

Ajit Pai’s FCC is the unlikely resistance hero of the day.

“By way of example, one application proposed to transfer WGN-TV in Chicago to an individual (Steven Fader) with no prior experience in broadcasting who currently serves as CEO of a company in which Sinclair’s executive chairman has a controlling interest. Moreover, Sinclair would have owned most of WGN-TV’s assets, and pursuant to a number of agreements, would have been responsible for many aspects of the station’s operation. Finally, Fader would have purchased WGN-TV at a price that appeared to be significantly below market value, and Sinclair would have had an option to buy back the station in the future. Such facts raise questions about whether Sinclair was the real party in interest under Commission rules and precedents and attempted to skirt the Commission’s broadcast ownership rules.”

You mean that the FCC is covering their ass with the slightest amount of effort?


#2896

Yes, that’s more accurate. Still, I’ll take whatever help we can get in making Bizarro World a little less insane.


#2897

Not a repeat article about a previous incident


#2898

Not precisely resistance to Trump, but resistance to policies he and his ilk promote.

More USians need to emulate this kind of resistance. Even one person can make a difference!

Someone apparently destroyed Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last night.


#2900

Destroyed it again; it’s been attacked more than a few times now…

The opinion is here:

Bloomberg continues the major news outlets’ trend of not linking to available documents lest they lose advertising eyeballs but rather bizarrely they do give the case citations, presumably in case any lawyers reading want to look it up but are incapable of doing so without a hint?

The cases are The District of Columbia v. Trump, 17-cv-1596, U.S. District Court, District of Maryland (Greenbelt) and Blumenthal v. Trump, 17-cv-1154, U.S. District Court, District of Columbia (Washington).

C’mon, ‘Capone Effect’, PLEASE…


#2904

How much I love hearing those words


#2905

Seriously, though.


#2906

"For Trump, this is the equivalent of being kicked in the balls after taking a crowbar to the face."

Weaselberg knows trump’s Pantone color and where ALL the bodies are buried.

Slow news day.

“Some of the direct messages were previously published, but this is the first time all of the direct messages have been posted.

The messages show that Wikileaks wanted the GOP to defeat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential elections.”
