Even with today's Rudy Giuliani raid, the doomsday pundits are still insisting too much "damage" has been done and he's going to "get away with it all." But that's gibberish. To obtain this kind of warrant, the Feds would need to already have enough evidence to put Rudy away.
Rudy's indictment and arrest is now a given. But even when that happens, the doomsday pundits will move onto their next round of scare tactics by insisting that no jury will ever convict a Trump henchman – even though multiple juries have already convicted Trump henchmen.
If Rudy cuts a plea deal, the doomsday pundits will insist it means he got away with it all. If Rudy is convicted, the doomsday pundits will insist he'll somehow never serve time. And if Rudy dies while awaiting trial, the doomsday pundits will definitely insist he won by dying.
The doomsday pundits push this defeatist gibberish on liberal activists because it always gets them a whole lot of likes, follows, clicks, and praise for "telling you what you don't want to hear." Which is why they push this gibberish. They'll only stop if you tune them out.
Other liberal pundits have spent all year mocking Palmer Report because we keep daring to point out that Trump and his henchmen are going down. Today's raid proves we were right and they were wrong. Yet the doomsday pundits will keep mocking us, because defeatism is their brand.
And yes, Trump is (obviously) going to prison 😁

Turns out the Feds raided Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing today – two Trump “lawyers” who helped craft the phony Biden-Ukraine scandal. Feds also pursuing John Solomon, who wrote the phony op-ed hyping the scandal. They’re all going down – and it leads right to Donald Trump.
Keep in mind the Feds have typically already obtained a person’s electronic communications from service providers before even carrying out a raid like this. The raid is to see if they can get them on obstruction, see if there’s bonus evidence, and let them know they’re screwed.
So now it’s a race to see if Rudy or Toensing (or anyone else who realizes they’re about to get raided) cuts a plea deal first against the others. First cooperator gets a lenient deal. Everyone else gets long prison sentences.

Why has Ted Cruz grown even more frazzled and shrill than usual? Because he knows that all republican bullshitters like him reach a peak and then end up on the downslide for the rest of their career, and he knows he's on that downslide, and knows he can't stop it.
Republican bullshitters go always through the same career arc. You start off with nonstop lies carefully crafted to appeal to conservative bottom feeders, who quickly build you up, until you reach a point where you're in mainstream America's face for awhile, and they hate you.
If you're a republican bullshitter, the key is to pull off your big career accomplishment – the presidency, corrupt legislation, whatever it is – before the mainstream decides you're a menace to the country starts aggressively pushing back against you.

Trump’s favorability rating is down to 32%. It means he’s completely non-viable. You can’t win a national election with just your base; they’re always too small. Trump has little left but his base. It’s why lost badly in 2020, and why he isn’t a serious consideration for 2024.
A lot of moderates and conservatives gave Trump a chance in 2016, but once they saw his ineptness in office, they were done with him by 2020. Those same folks are done with him forever. And his base simply isn’t large enough to be relevant. His base was never remotely relevant.
The big concern for 2024 isn’t Trump. It’s the next right wing bullshitter who has a Trump-like message but not the baggage of proven ineptitude.

And no it won’t be DeSantis. His baggage of ineptitude in office in Florida is already on full national display.

Someday I’ll manage to convince the Democratic Party to stop sending “we’re gonna lose” fundraising emails. Who the hell would donate money to a campaign they’re being told is going to lose anyway? You want people to get behind your campaign, explain why you’re going to win.
This is part of a broader problem in which a lot of Democratic strategists still think the only way to win is to tell anyone who will listen that they’re losing. They think it’s the only way to prevent people from getting “complacent.” But that’s a notion from another era.
Modern campaigns last forever. The public doesn’t want to grind it out for you, if they think you’ll lose anyway.

But if you realistically spell out how you can and will win, the nation will rally around you. Social media will be abuzz. Voting for you will be the cool thing.

Most likely outcome is New York goes to court, earns the right to prove it has at least 89 more residents than the Census counted, and gets to keep its House seat.

You should be outraged at the illegitimate Census. But doomsday panic is never your friend. Don't whine, win.
I know other liberal pundits are all doing the "all hope is lost and we're doomed" routine over these Census reapportionments. But these same liberal pundits said the Census shift would be much more severe in the GOP's direction. So these numbers are better than they predicted.
Pundits can't have it both ways. They can't predict that something is going to be super disastrous and use it as an excuse for the "all hope is lost" routine, and then when that thing turns out to only be kinda bad, also use that as evidence that all hope is lost. Pick one.

President Biden is making the right move by sharing the U.S. stash of the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine with the rest of the world. It's not up to U.S. standards and never was approved here, maybe never will be. We don't need it anyway. But the rest of the world needs it badly.
Some will argue that Biden should have done this sooner. But there was always the possibility that the FDA would approve AstraZeneca while the U.S. was still short on vaccine supply. Biden waited until that window closed.
Others will argue that Biden should be charging foreign governments for these doses. But the dollar amount is negligible. And frankly these doses are worth more in international goodwill and influence than their cash value. Also, not charging gets it distributed faster.
