Holy crap…this is big!

Well….wow, big news today that has to have the idiot trump shaking in his boots…the supreme court just ruled that prosecutors in New York can have the 8 years of tax returns that they subpoenaed related to a tax fraud case they are building against him….and in addition to the bank records they already have, trump is almost sure to lose everything and probably end up in jail since he has spent his entire life cheating on his taxes. Now, we won’t be able to see any of them until the trials start since they are being released under grand jury rules but they will come out…and then the entire world will know how much of a loser trump is….and I’m sure this is going to snare his criminal kids, too…couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch…

I guess when you run out the clock, it’s all good…

Well…hey, I guess the new word from the supreme court is that if you run out the clock until you’re out of office, it’s all good and you won’t be held responsible. Just today, the SC dismissed multiple lawsuits against the idiot boy for violating the emoluments clause of the constitution (you know the one where an elected official is not supposed to take money from outside the government while in office that trump did every damn day)…saying that the suits were “moot” since he is no longer in office….giving him a pass on all of the bribes he got by renting rooms in his hotels at inflated prices to foreign governments and from these same governments renting office space at one of his buildings. Now, I think the SC missed an important chance to clarify what is legal and not legal in the way of these direct payments and you have the trump crony justices to thank for it…I guess he did finally get some “help” from his justices…they just saved him from having to pay all that money back…what a bunch of crooks….

A supreme court smackdown…

Well…wanted to get a comment out early on the supreme court smackdown delivered to idiot boy yesterday evening when they ruled that the suit from the moron in Texas, Paxton, had no merit and they were not going to overturn the election on lies and stupidity. Even Alito, who dissented from the ruling on procedural grounds, added that he would rule that the suit would not succeed even if they took the case up…and even trump’s toadies, who he counted on to appoint him president for life, joined the majority in rejecting the case. You know what came next? Of course the Texas repubs were crying in their beer and threatened to take like minded states and form their own country that would “follow the constitution”…which is the biggest piece of irony I’ve seen in quite a while….this should end all this nonsense but with trump and his cronies, who knows? What I do know is that they are still fundraising as if the decision never happened and are still running ads that say the election was “stolen” from them and this is all that fox news viewers will see since they will never report the truth….we all knew this would be the ruling but were still holding our breaths until it came…now, just go away, trump…we’ve had enough of your crap…geez…

Why do repubs hate democracy so much?

Well….Joe Biden won the election…why the hell is that so hard for repubs to say and accept? There are even parts of the repub controlled government who have prohibited their people from even saying president elect Joe Biden and have retaliated against people for saying it…my question is: Why do repubs hate democracy so much? Why are they still trying to overturn the election that has been called the “Safest and most well run election” by even repub Secretaries of State across the country? We all know why…they just want power to be able to keep hurting people and stealing as much as they can for the 1%…and to keep putting brown people in cages who legally apply for asylum…they get their jollies from hurting people and they love that feeling so they are desperate to be able to keep doing it…and this lawsuit filed by the criminal AG of Texas Paxton (who is doing this to make sure he gets a pardon before trump is gone) and joined by 16 other repub controlled states? They want the results of other people’s elections nullified by the SC…not any state that idiot boy won mind you, but 4 swing states that he lost…since when does one state have the power to void an entire other state’s votes? To put it bluntly, they don’t….but these people are so damn dumb they think they can go to the SC with lies and bullshit and they will get their way….even though every other court has called bullshit on every suit….that’s not how it works in this country…the votes were counted and certified and Joe Biden is going to be sworn in January 20th….but this election aftermath has laid bare the fact that the repubs don’t care about our democracy at all…and the sooner they can be voted out the better….geez…

Even Alito won’t bail out trump…

Well…if trump and his cronies were banking on the SC to overturn the election in any of the swing states, they better think again…just today the supreme court refused to hear anything more about the certification process in Pennsylvania after an appeals court shot the suit down..so that ends it there…but the court telegraphed today that they are not going to get involved in election cases and that leaves trump and his idiot lawyers 1-49 having lost all but one of the suits they have brought…and the fact that even Alito didn’t dissent to the ruling says for trump to stop and accept that he has lost and no suits challenging the results will be successful….so the stupid Texas suit where the indicted AG Paxton has sued 4 swing states for some reason having to do with who the hell knows is going nowhere as all the rest of them have….can we finally get rid of these assholes?

I guess my right to live is now trumped by religion…

Well…as we all knew when the unqualified right winger Amy Barrett was appointed to the supreme court, she would be a reliable vote for all of the right wing wishlist that has been kept at bay over the past few years…but yesterday, we see the damage that she is going wreak on this country when she joined the other right wing justices to put religious people’s right above everyone else’s in a case in New York where, for public health purposes, the governor put a limit on the number of people who could attend religious service since there maskless services have been the cause of many, many superspreader events that actually killed people. But this supreme court hack basically said that religion is more important than everyone else’s right to live  when striking the order down…and we know where this is heading…the only thing you have to scream is religion and you get a free pass to discriminate and hate anyone you want…and you know what’s next? The rights of the LGBTQ community will be gone by spring…since religion trumps everything and if religious people don’t want the icky gays to marry, that’s going to be just peachy with these haters. This is why we need to win both senate seats in Georgia, to put a brake on these assholes who want to drag us back to the 1800′s…this is just the start…

We can impeach her…

Well….I know there has been a lot of consternation with Moscowmitch trying ram Amy Barrett’s nomination through the senate before the election but there is one thing we need to remember if we take back the senate and Joe wins…we can impeach her…it has already been reported that mitch and other senators have been coordinating with her to try to hide her far right wing beliefs and the fact she is not qualified for the SC…but it has already been reported that she may have lied on the forms she submitted to get the appeals court seat where she now sits…and lying on those forms is perjury, which would disqualify her from any court…so, just because moscow mitch can ram her through, it doesn’t mean that she will stay there….once we have the senate, we can do a real investigation into both her and Kavanaugh…who it is clear did lie during his confirmation hearings.  Then just impeach and remove them and have Joe appoint two more justices of whom Merrick Garland should be number one….but, they should only be removed if they clearly broke the law…not for innuendo or lies like the repubs use…the rule of law needs to be restored and this would be a great place to start to restore the authority of the court which is in tatters after moscow mitch and his cronies broke every rule to put unqualified political hacks on the court.

Trump really IS going to jail after his term…

Well…with the supreme court ruling this morning that trump does not have the “absolute immunity” that he claimed in legal filings trying to hide his financial records, it really does look like he is going to be indicted as soon as he is out of office. Let’s remember that this case deals with state charges of fraud, money laundering, and other financial crimes that trump can’t be pardoned for and Deutsche Bank has already started the record dump to Cy Vance in NYC and the grand jury that will be delivering the charges in the case. The 7-2 decision wasn’t even close and even trump’s hand picked toadies, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh voted with the majority that trump is not a king and there is no person in the US who is above the law. Now, one thing that the SC did that I find troubling is not ordering the records to be released today but sending the cases back to the district courts for matters of separation of powers questions but that means they are going back to courts that trump has lost in every case so the rulings can’t reverse what the SC  has said today. This means that we probably won’t see the records until after the election but the prosecutors and grand juries will, and as I’ve said before, there are going to be many jurisdictions who will be ready to press charges on the day that trump leaves office…and that means the rest of trump’s life is going to be the same hell that he has put the entire country in…oh, and let’s remember one more little thing that happened last week… Deutsche bank paid a  150 million dollar fine for helping Jeffrey Epstein launder money through the bank…want to bet that they were doing the same thing for trump? And that evidence will be included in the records that CY Vance will have today? Idiot boy is well and truly screwed…finally…and he is going to prison…

“I guess the supreme court doesn’t like me”

Well….that statement just about sums up how the idiot trump sees the entire world…whether people like him or not is the only important thing to him, not that DACA recipients can now stay in the US, not that California can declare itself a sanctuary state, not that the second amendment can be restricted just like every other amendment to the constitution, and not that our LGBTQ friends and neighbors have the same rights as the rest of us…all things that trump and his racist cronies argued against that were just ruled by the court…but the takeaway that trump gets from this smackdown is that “the supreme court doesn’t like me”….typical narcissist thinking and revealing that everything is about trump…not the law, not rights of LBGTQ Americans, not the racist bullshit that spews out of trump every day…but it is just about if people like him or not…and shows how frickin needy this asshole is….and lays bare his worldview that everything revolves around him…not the 800,000 DACA recipients who now can breathe a sigh of relief after wondering for months if today is the day that ICE is going to show up and put them on a plane for a country they have never lived in. I am really surprised that the court ruled that trump can’t deport DACA recipients today…I expected that they would side with trump and his racist cronies and allow all of these people to be rounded up and arrested….but trump losing 4 cases this week made me so damn happy…not that trump lost, but that the right decisions were handed down and it made this country better…something that idiot boy can never say…

But wait, there’s more…

Well…with all of the attention given to the miraculous supreme court decision announced yesterday that yes, LGBTQ people here in the US have the same rights as everyone else and can’t be fired or discriminated against for who they are, there were two more cases that were also decided that put the old advertising hook in my head..”but wait, there’s more!” The first one dealt with California passing legislation declaring itself a “sanctuary state” that would not cooperate with the thugs from ICE who were terrorizing the undocumented population there…some with deep roots in the state and most who are contributing members of California society…doing jobs that no one else wants to do at the pay that farm owners want to pay. After the law was passed, trump and his racist cronies sued California for not spending their tax dollars to help them carry out their racist policies of putting children in cages and separating them from their families. Every damn court upheld California’s right to determine how their state will be run and how it’s tax money will be spent…but even after losing in every court, Barr kept up appealing the ruling, thinking that their cronies on the supreme court would certainly allow them to force states to be as racist as they are…but he and the rest of trump’s racist cronies got slapped down when the court told them to go away, that California has the right to control their state. The second case is more about what the court didn’t do…they declined to take 10 cases on gun control that the second amendment nuts had shopped around to right wing trumpist judges who ignored the law to rule in their favor…but after the appeals courts ruled that reasonable restrictions on the second amendment are allowed…as with every other damn amendment, the court declined to take the cases, essentially saying the appeals courts got it right in what they ruled…so now trump is even a bigger loser today than yesterday….he has lost 99% of the cases his crooked justice department under Barr has brought but that won’t stop them for wasting more of the court’s time for the next 6 months….losers all…
