Do Trump's Lawyers Know What They Are Doing?

quote [ Here’s the problem: the townships and precincts listed in paragraphs 11 and 17 of the affidavit are not in Michigan. They are in Minnesota. Monticello, Albertville, Lake Lillian, Houston, Brownsville, Runeberg, Wolf Lake, Height of Land, Detroit Lakes, Frazee, Kandiyohi–these are all towns in Minnesota. I haven’t checked them all, but I checked a lot of them, and all locations listed in paragraphs 11 and 17 that I looked up are in Minnesota, with no corresponding township in Michigan. ]

For those not watching the "please keep me out of NYS-DOC for the rest of my life" reality show - here's the latest shitshow from the fatberg in charge. $20000 a day - that's what Rudy is getting paid.

Hundreds of people waited hours in the cold for buses after Trump rally in Omaha

quote [ Trump campaign officials said they had enough buses ready nearby to shuttle people back to their cars, but said a larger-than-expected crowd slowed the buses return. Paramedics took six people to local hospitals "due to a variety of medical conditions," said Tim Conahan, police chief for the Omaha Airport Authority. ]

The charter bus company that was going to give them rides back reported that the credit card given them by the Trump campaign was declined, repeatedly.

Never has a campaign been so frequently a metaphor for itself.

Astronomers say they’ve detected the most massive merger of two black holes ever discovered

quote [ Astronomers may have detected the most massive collision of two black holes ever discovered, a chaotic merger that occurred some 7 billion years ago, the signs of which have only just reached us. The cataclysmic event offered researchers a front-row seat to the birth of one of the Universe’s most elusive objects.

The distant show included two major players: one black hole roughly 66 times the mass of our Sun, and another black hole roughly 85 times the mass of our Sun. The two came close together, rapidly spinning around one another several times per second before eventually crashing together in a violent burst of energy that sent shockwaves throughout the Universe. ]

Seven billion years ago - those were the good old days, or epochs, or eras, or whatever.

Trump encourages North Carolina residents to test system by voting twice

quote [ President Trump on Wednesday suggested supporters in North Carolina should illegally attempt to vote both by mail and in person, saying doing so would test the integrity of the system. ]

Here's Trump ordering his supporters to commit crimes...apparently in order to prove crimes are being committed.

I'm loathe to attribute nefarious schemes to Trump when stupidity will suffice.

Voting twice in N.C. is a federal crime and a class-1 felony in the state, as is inducing someone to do so.

Trump Photo Op in Kenosha Wisconsin Taken With The Wrong Person

quote [ The business owner whom Trump stood alongside and consoled in what was supposed to be the most memorable photo op of the visit, it turned out, was not the owner of the business at all.

The man standing alongside Trump in the rubble was in fact the previous owner. The actual owner, Tom Gram, had been approached by the White House, but had declined, according to TMJ4 News. ]

That'll make it memorable, for sure. Plus it was Evers that deployed the NG not the dumpsterfire. Full in extended.

Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies after battle with coronavirus

quote [ Cain, a onetime presidential hopeful who was once considered by Trump for the Federal Reserve, is among the highest-profile public figures in the United States to have died from Covid-19. ]

Yep - and caught it at the Tulsa "rally" where he was walking around slapping backs and hugging people without having a mask on.

MLB postpones 2 baseball games as Marlins members test positive for COVID-19

quote [ MLB canceled two matchups after the Miami Marlins members tested positive for COVID-19. ]

Anyone surprised? Although the cardboard cutouts that looked like fans, and the fake crowd noise was...special. Done and out after 4 days.

Small Business Emergency Relief Program Hits $349 Billion Cap In Less Than 2 Weeks

quote [ The $349 billion Paycheck Protection Program to boost small businesses during the coronavirus economic crisis has run out of money.

"The SBA is currently unable to accept new applications for the Paycheck Protection Program based on available appropriations funding," a Small Business Administration spokesperson said in an emailed statement Thursday. "Similarly, we are unable to enroll new PPP lenders at this time." ]

I wonder where that money actually went...we should ask the inspector general...oh, wait...

More recovered coronavirus patients are testing positive again

quote [ South Korean officials say that more than 116 people have tested positive for COVID-19 —after having been cleared of it previously, Reuters reports.

There are plenty of caveats to South Korea’s plans, though. According to Jeong Eun-kyeong, director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC), the virus may have reactivated itself rather than the patients being re-infected. There’s also the possibility that early COVID-19 tests showed false positives. ]

Greetings from the west0coast "nation-state."I've accepted the fact that the council of Democratic governors plus de Wine and a couple of Republicans are all the government that the United States really has left at this point.

Boris Johnson in intensive care as corona virus symptoms worsen

quote [ The prime minister, 55, was admitted to hospital in London with "persistent symptoms" on Sunday evening.

The Queen has been kept informed about Mr Johnson's health by No 10, according to Buckingham Palace.

BBC political correspondent Chris Mason said the prime minister was given oxygen late on Monday afternoon, before being taken to intensive care. ]

Damn - England is getting pummeled by this epidemic. If this guy survives, he needs to give the beleaguered NHS staff a pay rise...
