I mean even if we assume it was A Bad Thing™ it still wouldn't be treason

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
– US Constitution, Article III, Section 3
Telling our biggest trading partner "hey if we nuke you I'm gonna give you enough of a heads up to get to the parking garage before you're vaporized" isn't "giving aid and comfort"

There were so many Trump scandals I don't even remember this one

Who was SecDef then, Yesper? What happened?
Always a possibility in DC


the entirety of Trump's tenure had oodles upon oodles of people who knew he was unfit for office, but would only ever say so on background (if at all)
*Two* witnesses, or a confession

"No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court."
– US Constitution, Article III, Section 3, Clause 2
I'd argue both are entirely correct in a colloquial geopolitical adversary sense

But yes both are wrong in terms of "Enemies" for treason purposes
A small price to pay to not have a muppet like BoJo running the government 😉

So if my count is right, this means that UNC Chapel Hill's:

➡️ Media Relations Director
➡️ Media Relations Assoc Director
➡️ Internal Communications Director
➡️ Vice Chancellor of Communications

have all been shown the door in less than a month?
That's an awful lot of sacrificial lambs

The Board of Trustees must've been hopping mad over how bad they looked in the Nikole Hannah-Jones tenure scandal 😂🤦‍♂️
Which Republican spokesminions do y'all think will fill these (lucrative) vacancies?

And is this housecleaning driven by Chancellor KGus to avoid being fired, or by Clayton Somers's paymasters to prep his arrival? 🤔

One of my clients paid his not-small invoice 2 weeks early O_o

Honestly not sure how to process this news

Wtf sort of defamation standards do they have in Ireland?? O_o
What is the court standard for objectively determining "vile"ness?

I mean holy sh*tsnacks that's bizarre

I don't post 9/11 remembrances for a variety of reasons, but a friend of mine from undergrad (@wolfpackjew) reminded me I'd shared something at the 15-year mark
