Legislators are preparing to override his veto to allow greater school choice under the state voucher system, so Gov. Cooper declared that override to be akin to be Cat 5 hurricane...…
...Cooper's invocation of emergency powers leaves voters with a chilling message: they are the threat.  Cooper is detecting a sharp drop in political atmospheric pressures just before an election season. For a politician, that is nothing short of an emergency.

Professor McQuade’s call to limit free speech is justified as needed to combat disinformation, misinformation, and malinformation. Yet, McQuade just went public with a full-throated defense of what the U.S. government now calls a “conspiracy theory.”...…
...It is a variation on proving a negative. McQaude and others appear to be arguing that you must prove that there was no Russian involvement before giving weight to the damaging contents of the laptop.
...The Court has indicated that there will be more opinions next week...Two minute warning. Buckle up. Here we go...

We are now 15 minutes away from the release of new opinions by the Supreme Court. (Friday has also been added for the release of new opinions). There are two abortion cases on the mifepristone pill access and emergency room care. There is a major gun case in Rahimi on the scope of 2A protections as well as bump stock ban case. There are cases on the Trump immunity challenge as well as a case on the validity of obstruction charges linked to the J6 riots. So buckle up...
...Five minute warning...
...There are reportedly two boxes, which is a rough guage on the number of opinions...

The Hunter Biden verdict is in. This is ordinarily a bad sign for a defendant since one would have expected at least a hung jury on this evidence. That would have produced an Allen charge where the court would send them back for additional deliberations...
...Of course, this is a Biden being tried in Wilmington so predictions are a bit more difficult with a clear nullification strategy...
...Guilty on all counts...

Wow. The judge was mistaken. The jury has a verdict. They are not asking to leave early. They have a final decision.
...It is hard to see this as positive for Trump. If there were a hung jury, it was expected to be a minority of hold outs. We will have to wait to see. However, those who bet on Thursday appear prophetic. The judge seemed surprised and was waiting to dismiss them for the day.
...t just seems far too early for an acquittal so the bets are on conviction. The jury clearly has moved beyond whatever impasse existed before sending out its two notes. However, we will all soon know...

Judge Merchan is saying that the jury will be excused at 4:30. verdict today.
...It is important not to overplay the fact that the jury is electing not to stay until 6. The judge had left it up to them. If they wanted to go longer, it would not bode well for Trump. It clearly shows that they are not in striking distance of a verdict, though that can mean many things including a reflection of the large number of counts.

In a major victory for free speech, the Supreme Court ruled today 9-0 against New York's Department of Financial Services in National Rifle Association of America v. Vullo. I previously wrote about the case...…
...Once again, the ruling shatters the narrative from the left that this is a dysfunctionally divided court. The court continues to rule unanimously or nearly unanimously in most cases, including important cases like Vullo...
...This case highlights the shameful use of government offices for political purposes by New York officials. In this case, the state agency used its powers to pressure banks and companies to disassociate with the NRA. What is chilling is the support of so many in New York...
