Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, the city’s top prosecutor, was indicted yesterday on federal charges of perjury and filing false mortgage applications related to her purchase of two Florida vacation homes.…
Mosby, a Democrat elected to her post in 2015, is accused of falsely claiming twice to have suffered a work-related financial hardship from COVID-19 in order to request early withdrawals totaling $90,000 from her city employee retirement account.
Prosecutors said Mosby, 41, used the money she received – $36,000 in May 2020 and $45,000 on Dec. 31 of that year – toward down payments on vacation homes in Kissimmee, Florida, and Long Boat Key, Florida.
The two counts of perjury stem from Mosby’s false statements of coronavirus-related financial duress at a time when she was earning a gross annual salary of nearly $248,000 in full.

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) predicted almost 200 years ago that above the “crowd of similar and equal men” in a democracy will emerge “an immense and tutelary power” which will create a new kind of despotism: 1/
"After having thus taken each individual one by one into its powerful hands, and having molded him as it pleases, the sovereign power extends its arms over the entire society; 2/
it covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated, minute, and uniform rules, which the most original minds and the most vigorous souls cannot break through to go beyond the crowd; it does not break wills, but it softens them, bends them and directs them; 3/

One of my key takeaways from the Virginia election: Don’t alienate the voters who support Trump but at the same time don’t run a campaign that is dependent upon Trump’s support.
But at the same time, Trump’s endorsement and support is not a negative, it’s a positive. After all, Trump endorsed Youngkin and it had zero negative effect. It was positive. To sum up, Trump’s support will help mobilize the base but you must be able to mobilize the base in the

Gen. Mark Milley on September 1st: “We had very good intelligence that ISIS-K was preparing a specific type vehicle at a specific type location. We monitored that through various means…we went through the same level of rigor that we've done for years…it was a righteous strike.”
Pentagon today: Ten civilians, no terrorists killed by US drone strike in Kabul.…
Was the “intelligence” that Milley was relying upon regarding ISIS-K based upon information provided by the Taliban?

“The crew and passengers put democracy in action,” Mr. Franz says. “They take a vote” — to storm the cockpit and regain control of the plane.…
The more familiar narrative of Flight 93 focuses on those Mr. Franz calls the “big guys” — Todd Beamer, for example, the young software salesman who helped to organize the passenger revolt and whose last recorded words of “Let’s roll!” became a national rallying cry.
“Let me tell you about Sandy Bradshaw,” he says, recalling the 38-year-old flight attendant who, in a furtive call to her husband, explained how she was boiling water to hurl at the hijackers.

In a society where narratives matter more than actual facts, what happens to the truth? What happens when these narrative are weaponized by those who "report" the news in order to persuade a society that action must be taken on behalf of the government? 1/
Does this lead more or less people to question the information they are fed by the press? If you know how to read in between the lines, you know that what is mostly reported in the form of news today is nothing more than a narrative that either downplays or ignores the facts. 2/
This form of reporting seemingly always acts to defend the government or as an amplifier in support of a government solution in the future. Yet, how many of us know how to read in between the lines and more importantly, how many even care? 3/3
