Come-On Aileen, Loose Cannon Is Next To Get ETTD Treatment

Hair Füror sucks

The disgraced, twice-impeached, LOSER ex-prznint Stupid has alleged that the FBI planted evidence during its search of Merde-a-Lardo –a search which netted a trove of at least 100 classified (at all levels) documents from his own desk and believe it or not, the unsecured basement of his country-club, with a WIDE OPEN bootlegger tunnel to the beach, which any beach bum could stumble upon. A teenage boy followed the tunnel into the clubhouse. We are not making this up.

In the days following the search Lord Damp Nut and his team spread conspiracy theories about the FBI planting evidence:

We bring this up as background information to our main question, which is: Why did Judge (Come-ON) Aileen (Loose) Cannon let off the hook the man who appointed her from having to testify under oath that the FBI tampered with evidence?

If you had not heard, Loose Cannon overruled her own court-appointed special master, Judge Raymond Dearie, who commanded Team Evil to state under oath which items they alleged were planted by the FBI. Wild speculation of evidence tampering to Fox News-watching chumps is one thing, but lying under oath to a judge is perjury. Lord Damp Nut’s attorneys could face a world of hurt if they knowingly make false declarations to Judge Dearie, including some time off from the rest of society and the loss of their licenses to practice law. This might explain the sudden disappearance of lead attorney Chris Kise.

Anyway, Judge Cannon protected them from that fate, and overruled her own Special Master from asking such a basic and probing question.

I cannot think of any earthly reason why Loose Cannon would do this, what law does it serve, etc., other than she is under thrall to the Orange Menace and is doing what she perceives to be to his benefit.

And we conclude that we are not alone in thinking that Judge Cannon is in the bag for TFG:

Big Lie Boffo Box Office in Texas Explained

D’Vorce D’Spousa

(Undated File Photo)

It’s sort of buried at the end of a long, deeply reported article on Texas AG Ken Paxton’s very compromised office, entitled, Dysfunction in Texas AG’s office as Paxton seeks third termand it explains how documentary fabulist D’Vorce D’Spousa’s movie got any traction at all in America’s Lab for Bad Policy:

In May, the head of Paxton’s election integrity division invited his team to a movie theater for a screening of “2000 Mules,” the debunked film that falsely claims to prove the 2020 election was stolen.

“General Paxton will be present, among others, and I think they would love to have a good showing from our office,” assistant attorney general Jonathan White wrote in an email.

As senior lawyers have been leaving the attorney general’s office, newcomers who’ve stuck by Paxton have seen their careers and compensation skyrocket.

Aaron Reitz, who finished law school in 2017, was hired as an aide to Paxton’s top deputy at a salary of $135,000 in October 2020. The next month, after the deputy reported Paxton to the FBI and quit, Reitz was promoted to oversee agency legal strategy, a senior job making $205,000.

In June, Reitz’s assistant sent out invitations to a “2000 Mules viewing party,” complete with barbecue. More than 90 staff and interns were later told to bring their own lunch.

Well, that’s wingnut welfare of a whole different sort. Imagine you had to see D’Vorce D’Spousa’s propaganda to keep your job?

Secret Serice, U-Up?

Amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch McConnell

I’m not one to defend amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch, but even I think this is WAY OVER THE LINE:

It doesn’t take a a lot of imagination to read the death threat in that message (with the frisson of anti-asian racism on top) to send some weak-brained Red Hats to hunt down the Turtle.

Plausible deniability? Yeah:

Domestic Tuckerism? Definitely:

I assume that Senate Leadership has Secret Service protection, but I don’t know that for a fact.

Love, Republican Style

I’m beginning to understand the concept of “Cringe” –

While I do believe that there are a lot of Republican incels (Hi Charlie Kirk!) who want to, you know,  see an actual woman, I have a hard time believing that Peter Thiel(!)  has binders full of women just waiting to meet them.
