A round up of Trumpian events 🖕🍊🤡

Ugh, these kind of shitheads again

Two conspiracy theorists were arrested Monday after allegedly harassing residents of Sutherland Springs, Texas, the site of the Nov. 5 mass shooting at a town church where 26 congregants died. Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy allegedly found the two writing “the truth shall set you free” on a chapel poster that is meant for well-wishers to sign. When Pomeroy confronted the two—identified as Robert Ussery, 54, the founder of conspiracy website Side Thorn, and 56-year-old Jodi Mann—they allegedly began shouting about their belief that the shooting was staged. Pomeroy’s 14-year-old daughter died in the shooting, along with 25 others. Pomeroy told the San Antonio Express-News said that Ussery “continually yelled and screamed and hollered and told me he was gonna hang me from a tree, and pee on me while I’m hanging… He said, ‘Your daughter never even existed. Show me her birth certificate. Show me anything to say she was here.’” Charging information on Ussery and Mann was not immediately available.

I wonder if Nunberg’s entire meltdown (real or not) would lead to a mistrial, except that it hasn’t reached trial. It would seem he’d no longer a reliable witness; more likely that’s what he wants them to think.

Every month or so I receive a solicitation in the mail from Judicial Watch, whose motto (according to the junk mail solicitation) is “Because no one is above the law!” I reckon that, by the next mailing, they will surely have moved on from Hillary Clinton to Kushner and/or the illegal use of the seal.

Jesus, I’d not heard of these clowns before. They have a headline about NYPD coverups on their homepage, but, you guessed it, not about the recent news of the NYPD covering up officers use of force or misconduct, it’s about the death of police officer Phillip Cardillo and the “Harlem Mosque Incident” from 1972

Yeah, I don’t know why the likes of Judicial Watch and Joe Arpaio bother with repeatedly sending me junk mail. You’d think they (i.e. conservative organizations, in general) would check the demographics of the Zip code in which I live, and save on postage costs by not sending mail there at all:

  • 49% foreign-born
  • nearly 54% Hispanic
  • 38% African American
  • 12% White alone, Not Hispanic or Latino

EDIT: Our county (not sure about our Zip code, specifically) went 88% in favor of Clinton/Kaine and 8% for Trump/Pence.

I don’t believe ex-Sheriff Joe nor Judicial Watch are going to muster a lot of sympathy in this Zip code, but maybe I’m being prejudiced.

Latest mailing was from Star Parker, who at least had the decency to put a stamp on the return envelope so I could say “REMOVE ME.”

I’m sure the Forbes people are good, but they can only take into account what they know about, and not hidden liabilities like secret loans, if any.

I would consider such a program if I were president.

Now the point of the program would be to have poachers submit their information to the federal government so they could be deported to the country the poached from, but you know.

“I’d like to bring this elephant tusk back to the USA.”
“Oh would you? Could you provide your name, contact information, and a precise description of where you killed the elephant for our records?”

Poor elephants. :frowning:

So this was fairly amazing. At no point did my attention wander during the 50ish-minute-long program.

Okay, is anyone else freaked out about the fact that he has a hard time telling the difference between friend & foe?

Is it sad that I have become so jaded about this administration I am totally unfazed by this?

On one hand I get a little nervous that more and more people are exiting and it’s just going to be Trump walking around in his bathrobe screaming at the walls.

On the other hand, the further these people get from the White House the better. Fuck Gary Cohn.
