Trumpists backpedaling furiously 😂

Now they admit there was no hacking, the data-access was legal, and HRC knew nothing of it; they say the guy's crime was—wait for it!— taking data *to the FBI*; they claim he knew it was false (no, he told the FBI he didn't know what it meant)
(PS) I told everyone yesterday night that this was a big sloppy fart of a nothing-burger—excuse my language, but it's true—and here we are, in the light of day on the following day, and everything the Trumpists were claiming yesterday has fallen apart like a soggy, snotty tissue.
(PS2) If the MAGA cult could just take the "L" and admit they were conned by a mediocre con man for 7 years we wouldn't have to deal with these fake "bigger than Watergate!" Trump-was-spied-on scandals every six weeks, which *always* turn out to be absolute, unremitting nonsense.
(PS3) The "Trump was spied on!" conspiracy theory was a hoax in 2016. And 2017. And 2018. And 2019. And 2020. And 2021. It's still a hoax—pushed by the same losers and dead-enders it has always been pushed by—in 2022.

If I seem angry, it's because there's *actual* news to cover!

(🔐) MAJOR BREAKING NEWS: Eyewitness Says He Was Present As Coup Plotter Patrick Byrne Privately Confessed to Federal Crimes on January 6—and Insists There’s Video of Him Doing It

The evidence that’s just come out is stunning. I hope you’ll RETWEET this.…
1/ I think the most important thing to say here—right off the bat—is that these two men need to be subpoenaed by Congress immediately, and the FBI and DOJ need to subpoena the B-roll of Byrne's film if they haven't done so already (and if they haven't, it's a *massive* failure).
2/ I’ve long said that most of the coup plotters are unsophisticated and arrogant (candidly, like many criminals I encountered in my former professional work); they routinely confess their crimes in ill-considered, little-seen videos; and investigators *must* track these videos.

(THREAD) Trump and his insurrectionists are buzzing about the latest nothing-burger in John Durham’s failed revenge plot against the heroes who investigated Trump’s crimes. I’ll summarize the latest farce in this thread. Prepare to be *dramatically* underwhelmed.

Please RETWEET. Image
1/ First, remember that Durham was handpicked by Trump attack dog Bill Barr—widely considered among the most corrupt Attorneys General in history. Durham’s brief was to try to destroy any law enforcement official who tried to hold Trump accountable for the first time in his life.
2/ Second, understand that though it’s now gone on for *years* and wasted *millions* of dollars, Durham’s embarrassing, politically-motivated-from-the-jump charade has failed: you can count its indictments on one hand, and they’re for what *Trumpists* call “minor process crimes.”

(🔐) MAJOR BREAKING NEWS: Trump Adviser and Ex-Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne Just Admitted Knowledge of a January 6 Coup Plot in a Videotaped Confession

This is the longest and most complex article that's ever appeared at PROOF. I hope you will RETWEET it.…
1/ I do not want to hide the ball here: you should expect that it will take a couple hours to fully read and process this breaking news report at PROOF. What is revealed here is astounding—and it requires careful analysis by both civilian readers and by federal investigators.
2/ I'll repeat here what I have long said (ever since PROOF was cited, by name, in the House January 6 Committee's report to Congress regarding referring Steve Bannon to DOJ for the federal charge of Contempt of Congress): the House's January 6 committee is aware of my research.

BREAKING NEWS: Plot to Have Department of Homeland Security Seize Voting Machines Pre-January 6 Apparently Written By Giuliani Agent and Former DHS Employee Christina Bobb—Who Was Posing As An OANN "Journalist" on January 6 While Contacting DHS From Trump's Willard Hotel War Room
I think I've mentioned Christina Bobb about as much as any US journalist—and now you know why. She was Team Trump's conduit to DHS; had access to the Capitol on January 6 as a supposed "reporter" and therefore could send intel to Team Trump; and was lobbying DHS to aid in a coup.
(PS) I feel like #SubpoenaBobb should trend now.

Thank god almost no one in media is covering the undercount COVID-19 death toll, as we’re at 1.5 million Americans dead in 23 months and if that were widely known along with the fact that 3000 died just yesterday those “getting back to normal” thinkpieces would be harder to write
Also out of bounds would be those fabulous “grandma would have died pretty soon anyway” takes that make Twitter such a great place to be in the midst of thousands of Americans dying daily from a deadly virus
Apparently we’re not supposed to care about the elderly dying, or folks with comorbidities, or unvaccinated people, but unfortunately I do because of how I was raised

Also—fun fact—somewhere between 1 in 6 and 1 in 4 of those dying daily are vaccinated and “did everything right”

(🔓) RETRO UNLOCKED: The second edition of the RETRO Top NES Homebrews is here! New additions include:

💢 6 New Genre Sections
💢 50 More Ranked Games
💢 100+ Newly Assessed Games
💢 Much More!

I hope you'll read and RETWEET this for any gamers you know!…
1/ One addition I'm really excited about is notations ("🔹" and "🔸") for games that are either NEW to the ranking or have been RE-RANKED (respectively). This allows those who've read Vol. 1 of the ranking to quickly see the changes that have been made—and there are many of them!
2/ Upon request, there's an entirely new MULTIPLAYER ranking—with 29 games achieving main-ranking status already—and a section for ZAPPER games. The "Top 10 Overall" has also added two new games, and there's now developer information available for all Honorable Mention homebrews!
