Genetic analysis has shed light on a long-standing mystery surrounding the fates of President George Washington’s younger brother Samuel and his kin. Two of Samuel’s descendants and their mother were recently identified from skeletal remains found in unmarked burials dating back to the 1880s, CNN Reports:

Whether #Trump or #Biden are #US #president in 2025, what changes? The US will still be an "imperialist, white-supremacist, capitalist patriarchy" (bell hooks). The US will continue to support #Israel, to drum up war with #China #Russia #Iran, to invest in weapons and fossil fuels. Voting hasn't guaranteed #NoPoverty, #ZeroHunger, #GoodHealth, #Education, #GenderEquality, #CleanWater, #CleanEnergy, or #DecentWork for Americans. And the climate emergency continues. Does it matter who wins? #SDGs

Asks for Absolute on Charges

The court will hear arguments on April 25 over whether fmr presidents can be prosecuted for things they did while in office.

Trump urged the on Tues to rule that he is absolutely from charges stemming from his attempts to subvert the .

“For the purpose of this #criminal case, fmr President #Trump has become #citizenTrump, with all of the defenses of any other criminal defendant,” the panel wrote. “But any executive #immunity that may have protected him while he served as #president no longer protects him against this prosecution.”

When the case was argued in the appeals court, a lawyer for Trump argued that former presidents are absolutely immune from prosecution even for murders they ordered while in office.

“'Why do you use words like ‘vermin’ and ‘poisoning of the blood"?' Howard Kurtz, the media critic and interviewer, asked on Fox News. 'The press, as you know, immediately reacts to that by saying, "Well, that’s the kind of language that Hitler and Mussolini used."' 'Because our country is being poisoned,' Mr. Trump responded."

On national , Viktor Orbán laments the state of the world without in office, calls him the " of ," and says Trump will not give one penny to if he's elected >>>

notes that Orbán is the one who initially created the fake war against immigrants and promulgated the idea that they would replace ethnic Hungarians. No wonder he and Trump are 😐

The big problem with the State of the Union speech was that instead of speaking to the whole country about the whole country, it focused on speaking to his own choir about himself and his reelection.

That’s why people are criticizing it as a campaign speech.

If you’re a Biden supporter, realize that the speech did not invite non-supporters, including independents, to join in his efforts. It appealed only to those already on board, which is not productive in terms of actually getting those efforts done.

In other words, if you’re in favor of what Biden was calling for, you too should be critical that this won’t help get those things done.

The speech seemed focused on helping nobody… except Joe Biden’s personal reelection.

#SCOTUS essentially just ruled that any #President is free to commit #insurrection without reprisal so long as their party controls #congress.

It's clear that they don't have any more regard left for #democracy or the #constitution.

I'm concerned that there's a decent chance future history books will point to this as the start of the second civil war. Without any accountability imposed, the chance of #Trump attempting a more violent version of #J6 when he loses again is damn near 100%.

#Trump pledges that as #president he would immediately launch “the largest domestic #deportation operation in American history.” As a model, he points to an Eisenhower-era program known as “Operation Wetback,”[🤮] using a derogatory #slur for #Mexican #migrants. The operation used #military tactics to round up & remove migrant workers, sometimes transporting them in dangerous conditions that led to some deaths.
