If this entire story is true, a) the NYT hit is indeed egregious and b) MATT GAETZ IS THE STUPIDEST MOTHERFUCKER ALIVE, HOLY SHIT
24 hours from getting the instructions for payment in an extortion scheme as part of an FBI investigation and you blow the whole thing about your dad secretly cooperating with the feds BECAUSE YOU GET MAD OVER A NEWS HIT IN THE NYT?!?!?!?!?!

THE FBI. “We’ve been working on this case for months and he... he just... tweeted it out”
wait for it

this DEFINITELY looks like the business card of somebody you should consider giving $25 million dollars
It doesn't matter what the NYT did or what somebody at the FBI or DOJ did

what matters is: are you able to WAIT OUT ONE DAY with bad press to get these guys to commit the massive federal crime or not

Matt Gaetz failed the marshmallow test.

The Moose-feeding movie of Saturday night/Sunday morning (he woke up late night and was fussy) was LET'S SCARE JULIE (2018) on @Shudder, a well-meant but muddled ultra-low budget horror flick that falls short for a whole lot of reasons.
Premise: teen girls at a slumber party decide to scare the new girl across the street, who is home alone; this is a bad idea.

Gimmick: it's shot as one long take! Sort of!

Problem: The gimmick adds nothing to the movie, and is not competently executed.
Real talk: any attempt to shoot a feature film in one take inevitably bumps into real-world limitations imposed by the medium: hard drive space, or battery power, or (in the case of Hitchcock's ROPE (1948)) the size of a can of film.

There will be cuts. You have to hide them.

Today’s Moose-feeding movie is HIGH MOON (2019), wherein an Old West cowboy kills a werewolf outlaw gang before being dispatched by his interdimensional ninja mentor only to be resurrected in the present day where the also-resurrected werewolves have become a *motorcycle* gang.
JOE BOB BRIGGS VOICE. “Sure we’ve seen it before, but have we seen it *like this?!*”
Writer/director Josh Ridgway serves up a bit of a mixed bag: the premise is lunacy, the gore makeup is good, the werewolf makeup is terrible, the fights are decent, the cinematography is dull, all the scenes are too long.

The interesting part about Gosar and King attending AFPAC is the part afterwards where we’re gonna be finding out how much they’re really into it vs. how much they didn’t realize what they were in for by going.

Didn’t watch the speeches, but watched the reactions of people.
(For those who don’t know, AFPAC is the white nationalist event run by Nick Fuentes that piggybacks on CPAC to draw the clandestine and the curious — they got Steve King and sitting Congressman Paul Gosar to show up this year)
The white nationalists were either a) very excited to be validated or b) bristling, bc King’s speech twice used the term “Judeo-Christian” and Gosar has posted a ton of pro-Israel stuff, and Fuentes is of the branch of white nationalism that dislikes Jews more than black people.

For those few of you who missed the days of actualfa news, the current happening is a rerun of that favorite white nationalist sport

that’s right

specifically Nick Fuentes and Patrick Casey are now on the outs, and as Fuentes is of late the bigger figure that means Casey is on the outs with the Fuentes crew and allies, from Jaden McNeil to Michelle Malkin
tl;dr: people were asking Patrick Casey if he was going to Nick Fuentes’s AFPAC event and if not why not

so he cut a stream about how he wasn’t going because Nick Fuentes had had his bank accounts frozen and is under surveillance due to being investigated by the FBI

the only reason I'm doing this thread now is 'cause you may know somebody soon to be in a similar situation

Guessing somebody (e.g., admin figure, DOJ careerist, SPLC) put this case together out of existing info and pitched it as something Biden admin could use to make an early splash.

The question isn't the case; the question is: once they start shaking Ricky Vaughn, what falls out?
i.e., they could well decide to let Ricky Vaughn go with a warning, after investigating him to learn as much as possible about people he knew.
Read the complaint against Ricky Vaughn (justice.gov/opa/press-rele…) and some interesting things pop up:

* the investigation evidently got started with a re-interview of Paul Nehlen on October 5, 2020
* four co-conspirators are listed by twitter id number, but not account name
