Posted in: Judge warns Trump over juror intimidation; 7 jurors picked for trial See in context

Had American voters known about Mr. Trump's affairs, I have to wonder whether he would have won enough electoral votes to become President.

Perhaps, for $59.99 he should have included an audiotape.

Perhaps a meeting with the owner of Susquehanna International Group has refocused Trump's mind. The group has a 15% stake in ByteDance.

Posted in: Half of Japanese firms see another Trump presidency as risk, poll shows See in context

Mr. Trump owes the State of New York nearly $454 million, including interest, and the amount is going up by $87,502 every day until he pays. If he wishes to appeal the verdict, he needs to put up $354.8 million dollars.

Perhaps the CEOs of Japanese firms can start to breath a little easier.

I wonder if this vote is a way for Johnson to appease enough Republicans so that the House will vote for the Senate's funding bill.

Dan Marburger, the principal at Perry High School, has died after protecting students from the shooter.

I wonder how may Iowan voters will remember Mr. Trump's comments about the need to "get over it". Perhaps Mr. Trump should have taken his own advice....

Posted in: Biden’s burden: 4 percentage points, a struggling economy and fragile democracy See in context

The inflation rate is at 3.1% and the unemployment rate is at 3.7%. A soft landing that few predicted for the American economy back in 2022. Perhaps no recession after all? Perhaps a Biden re-election? (Thanks in part to former President Trump's nominee, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.) Funny that.

Apparently he advised former President Trump on more than one occasion. I don't recall whether Trump ever mentioned these meetings or what advice he was given.

I wonder whether Johnson's comments were meant to distract the media about George Santos's impending expulsion from the House.

After the interview that Anthony Pratt gave to 60 Minutes Australia, Mr. Trump might not want to take his winning the New Hampshire primary for granite.

From the 1713 ‘Works of Thomas Chalkley:

Posted in: Trump waives right to speedy trial as Georgia prosecutor seeks to try him with 18 others next month See in context

This is what the former President and Republican members of the House and Senate may need to worry about:

Fourteenth Amendment  Equal Protection and Other Rights

Section 3 Disqualification from Holding Office

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Posted in: Speaker McCarthy directs House panel to open impeachment inquiry into President Biden See in context

Actually, McCarthy and the rest should be more worried about about Trump will be barred from being on the ballots of some, if not all, states. If successful, perhaps members and candidates running for a House or a Senate seat may be next.

A suggestion for Donald Trump's new campaign song: "I Fought the Law and the Law Won". Perhaps by The Bobby Fuller Four or by The Clash. Perhaps not.

An Orwellian moment: when entertaining Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office, talking Putin's word over that of America's intelligence services, and praising Kim Jong-un. Before Trump, that was so far left that it would have been off the cliff. But now? And black is white and war is peace, eh?

From a Truth Social post on Friday: “Congratulations to Kim Jung [sic] Un!”. North Korea was elected to the executive board of the World Health Organization. The quote was from Donald Trump.

Posted in: 'Woke' fried chicken? Fast food chain at center of U.S. culture wars See in context

But the tables have turned, as right-wing influencers complain on social media about a statement from its vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion who says the company is committed "to ensuring mutual respect, understanding and dignity everywhere we do business."

Though that position has already been filled for a few years, angry social media commentators seem to have only just noticed this week.

There are more than enough residents of the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico for whom a chicken sandwich from a fast food restaurant is a luxury. A bit of gratitude from those of us who can afford it stirred with a dash of sharing -- start with that.

No storming of the Capitol Building? No Nancy Pelosi screaming about stolen elections, No nooses to be found anywhere? No Antifa?

The peaceful transfer of power---that is democracy!

Posted in: McCarthy fails in marathon votes for speaker See in context

The vote for Speaker requires a majority of the members present, no necessarily of all members of the House.

One possibility is for some members of the Freedom Caucus deciding that doing constituency work on Wednesday is more important than voting for the Speaker.
