Steve Bannon is so guilty that when he goes to prison he'll have to wear 3 jumpsuits!

In prison he'll have time to write that book about his struggle.

Don't bring a book to a Twitter fight
-Salutati

5 years ago my friend Salutati reminded me to be pithy.

I made his advice into an image.
Of course Twitter is now X, but the advice is sound.

I love this story about how this woman got this guy, Andrew Taake, to admit what he did on Jan 6th via the Bumble app.
"The woman's strategy was to say, 'Wow, crazy, tell me more,' on repeat until she had enough to send to the FBI.
A Jan. 6 rioter who assaulted law enforcement officers with bear spray & a metal whip — & who was arrested thanks to a woman's sting operation on the dating app Bumble — has been sentenced to just over six years in prison.

4 years ago @CNN @acosta asked Kayleigh Mcenany if they had to do it all over again, would they have gassed & pummeled protestors to clear the parks for Trump's photo op.
Now we know what they will do if they get a chance.

In 2020 she lied about what happened I called it

Juror says someone left her bag with $120,000 cash and promise of more if she’ll acquit.

No, it wasn't a Trump juror, but I want to know what is being done to protect them from MAGAts.
We know that they are doxxing & threatening Michael Cohen's family. And is paying off witnesses who don't testify against him. (based on new @ProPublica reporting. )

I want to see arrests & prosecutions of MAGAts trying to harm jurors, judges & their families. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/juror-says-someone-left-bag-120000-cash-promise-ll-acquit-rcna155332

Marjorie Taylor Greene Greene disgracefully disrespected Dr. Fauci during a hearing today: "Mr Fauci -- because you're not 'doctor' -- you're Mr. Fauci in my few minutes. No, I don't need your answer ... he belongs in prison"

spocko,
@spocko@mastodon.online avatar

For people who say , I agree with you. Also, the harassment of vilification of Dr. is not over.
In this 6-4-2024 hearing attacks Dr. Fauci

"You know what this committee should be doing? We should writing a criminal referral because you should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity. You belong in prison Dr. Fauci"

What I'd like to see are investigations & prosecutions of the people who threatened Dr. Fauci, like the person who sent white powder to his office.

@annaleen the story about Social Media companies NOT dealing with Election Disinformation now, because of lawsuits before , needs to be discussed.
This is a news hook for the book.
I'd like the Supreme Court watchers & legal experts briefed on this.
What was stopped?
Who stopped it?
Why did they want it stopped?

What has to happen to get it started again?
Who do we contact?
If can't be forced to comply, what can be done?
What should MSM know about it this? @emptywheel

Debbie Downers, please settle down for the day, please? We won. Trump lost, bigly.

A few of you said to me that Juror 2 was a MAGAt who would hang the jury. You were wrong.

Speculation is pointless.

Let this happen. So far, we’re doing well. Whatever comes next, let’s wait and see, which has always been my position on everything. Wait. And. See.

Thanks so much.

I'm with you. Celebrate now.
Everything I predicted has come true, someone from the NY AGs office just made a statement.
What WE can do to keep it going is to keep pushing Democrats to promote this verdict and talk about "CONVICTED FELON DONALD TRUMP"
Not just "kitchen table issues."
(But frankly, the justice system working IS a kitchen table issue in our house.)

"As soon as I saw it, I asked my wife to take it down, but for several days, she refused," Alito says of the upside down American flag that flew in his yard in January 2021.

"I do not want to cross my wife! She'll hang me faster than an upside down flag!" - Alito probably
"If I piss off my wife she starts chanting 'Hang Mike Pence!' and makes me sleep in the RV! " - Thomas probably

Trump is spreading disinformation now while jury is deliberating. What can the media do about it? Don't be Trump's data mule! Break up the disinformation with red X’s & overwriting instead of reposting the unfiltered messages.
Here is an illustration of how to do it.

From Scott MacFarlane
@MacFarlaneNews
Alert: Justice Sam Alito will not recuse himself from cases involving Jan 6 and Trump.

He responds by letter to inquiry from Senate Democrats saying (in part): “I had nothing whatsoever to do with the flying of that flag. I was not even aware of the upside-
down flag until it was called to my attention. As soon as I saw it, I asked my wife to take it down, but for several days, she refused.”

Let's talk about the dirty tricks Trump's people are using AND will use next. They want a hung jury, or. a mistrial.

REMEMBER, EVERY ACCUSATION IS A CONFESSION

  1. Accuse a BIDEN of treatening to kill Trump. That happened Friday
  2. Accuse ROBERT DE NIRO of jury tampering .
    That happened today
    Next?
  3. Accuse a jury member of working for Joe Biden. Demand they be kicked off the jury
    He/she won't be working for Biden, BUT this will lead to them being doxxed, life ruined.

Nikki Haley made it a point to stop and sign artillery shells that will be used to kill people. Men, women & children. This is morally repugnant.

signed her name on a 155-mm artillery shell with the message "Finish them! America [Heart drawing] Israel"

New in PN: Alito's "defense" of flying the J6 flag is transparent BS

“Even if a lawn sign was ‘personally insulting’ to the Alitos in some way, how is going full insurrectionist a legitimate response?” https://www.publicnotice.co/p/alito-upside-down-flag-january-6-explained

@atrupar Here are images from the letter. Wow. I was going to annotate it, but, as a reasonable person, I think you will all see the transparent BS.
