The Nevada Current telling it like it is in #headline and lede:

Trump, RNC promise ‘aggressive’ election interference in battleground states

"Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee on Friday announced a “100,000 person strong” program designed to harass #election officials and their employees and discredit #democracy in Nevada and a dozen other states."

Donald Trump won’t be getting his way in his New York hush money trial—at least, not without consequences.

Presiding Judge Juan Merchan decided Monday that prosecutors can cross-examine the former president on prior judgements and gag order violations. This is only relevant if Trump takes the stand, but given he has said he would “absolutely” testify in the trial, he seems pretty eager.

A New York Post front page on Monday blaring “Nyet, Moscow Marjorie”, its mocked-up picture showing Marjorie Taylor Greene wearing a Soviet cap, was the latest sign of sections of the US right turning on the extremist, pro-Trump Georgia congresswoman over her opposition to military aid for Ukraine.

“The score in Congress is now ‘Jewish space lasers lady 0, common sense 1’,” the Murdoch-owned tabloid said.

Excuse me, but my crimes were committed in the lawless pre-pando times before COVID-19 prompted us to form a rules-based order with laws to follow.

Or something.

I'm not one of those short memory people who will laud and praise Speaker Johnson. He blocked aid to Ukraine for six months. He's no hero.

"Opening statements are set to begin Monday morning in the case of the People of the State of New York versus Donald Trump, the first criminal trial of a former [U.S.] president."

NBC News reports that prosecutors "allege Trump worked with his then-attorney Michael Cohen and executives at the National Enquirer to suppress scandalous stories, including from adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal."

hey remember when i said that biden was willing to make those border concessions to get ukraine aid but that he had to know there was a good chance the magats would blow it up on trump's orders and not have to do it?

and that if they did it would show that it's republicans who are both making this shit up and stopping anyone from doing anything about it so this whole "border crisis" is on them?

remember all that?

well, now republicans are saying it too ^_^

“It’s not too late, because it’s never too late. No outcomes are ever preordained, nothing is ever over, and you can always affect what happens tomorrow by making the right choices today. The U.S. Congress is finally making one of those right choices. Soon, American weapons and ammunition will once again start flowing to Ukraine.”

I suspect Donald Trump is having a hissy fit over Mike Johnson today!

Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Republican Mike Johnson, claims that Russia, China and Iran are the “new axis of evil”.

The White House may soon be recaptured by Donald Trump, who called the climate crisis a “hoax” and even when backing off that assertion insisted, “I don’t know that it’s man-made.” He has demonstrated his thinking again and again, as when he told a scientist, “It’ll start getting cooler, you just watch.”

If the world is lucky, I mean really lucky, Matt Gaetz and MTG will lose their jobs this fall. Sounds like the elevated access to intelligence briefings and pressure from world statemen and leaders opened Johnson’s eyes on Ukraine. Something those two deplorables will never ever understand. https://wapo.st/3U5Ca77

If you look at the Freedom Caucus and the Ukraine aide vote, you'll realize the US and Parliamentary systems really don't have much difference after all.

The "two party system" is not actually a system, not enshrined anywhere, has changed values a number of times, and really is quite obviously at this point a natural way democratic countries sort themselves out for better or worse.
