Citizens United said nothing about contributions. It was three months after that Supreme Court case that a lower federal court, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, held that if independent expenditures created no risk of quid pro quo corruption, then — as a matter of law — contributions to a committee that makes independent expenditures could also create no risk of quid pro quo corruption. That decision created the SuperPAC.

■■■■■ has now demonstrated exactly why that decision is obviously wrong. Because the only way oil executives could give ■■■■■’s campaign $1B is if they contributed to a ■■■■■ SuperPAC. ■■■■■’s promise — that if they did, he would reverse Biden’s oil regulations — is a classic quid pro quo. But the “quo” — the $1B contribution — is a gift to a SuperPAC. Thus, the very thing that the D.C. Circuit said could not happen as a matter of law actually did happen as a matter of fact.

But PACs aren’t allowed to coordinate with the candidate or the campaign. Seems like this would violate that aspect even under Citizens United.

I’m probably going to regret asking this, but WTF is a CBDC?

It’s the latest thing Marge and trump are terrified of or want us to be terrified of but I can’t figure out why.

A CBDC is a digital form of central bank money that is widely available to the general public.

When the price of Bitcoin collapses we will have all those spare nuclear power plants just kicking around. It’s foolproof. /s

Well, that makes sense. Trump has crime and lying down pat, and
VP picks are traditionally supposed to balance the main candidate in areas they are weak or poll poorly on.
