Regarding the “America First Caucus,” a friendly reminder that the majority of American citizens under 18 are.....not white. The future of America is not white.
Angry white people are already a minority. This is the death rattle of their stranglehold on political power.
My parents got married just a few years after Loving v Virginia.
Their mixed race marriage was seen as a radical act by some. My mom’s parents didn’t care, it was the white side of the family that did.
Here they are, my dad was in the Navy and my mom was in medical school:
Here’s me with my grandparents when I was in college.
I was kind of an anomaly growing up. My friend group was racially mixed, but very few kids in my posh private school peer group were from mixed race families. Even fewer in my college class.
But that was 20+ years ago.
Dorworth, aka Gaetz’ former roommate, was working at @ballardfirm (which he resigned from last week) when this happened.
You know, the most successful lobbying firm during Trump’s presidency. The same firm Pam Bondi joined in 2019.
The GOP hates that large American corporations listen to the majority of the American public wrt to public perception, political stances, etc.
The free market accepts that being on the side of the popular vote is generally better for the bottom line.
This grates on the
nerves of free-market-pretenders like McConnell etc.
Because the GOP has entrenched itself as the tyranny of the minority party-aka it has embraced power via the polar opposite of a free market for political power-and it pisses the GOP off that they can’t use their unfair
political structural advantages to order corporations around.
It’s delicious, in a way.
Five Men Charged in Superseding Indictment for Assaulting Three Metropolitan Police Department Officers during the U.S. Capitol Breach justice.gov/usao-dc/pr/fiv…
“On April 1, a superseding indictment was unsealed in federal court in the District of Columbia charging five men with assaulting Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Officers, as well as other crimes, during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6”
And here's the third superseding indictment of Joel Greenberg, date stamped March 2021. I couldn't find it anywhere for free so i bought it on PACER and uploaded it here to share: scribd.com/document/50142…
Many many moons ago, in the early 2000s when you didn’t have to worry about bedbugs in furniture, I found this beautiful table on the street in my neighborhood while walking Nina home from Central Park.
It was scuffed then, & I have not treated it well.
That changes today. I hope
Ok part 1 is done. Is it perfect? No! It’s old! Of course it’s not perfect! And I probably should have used cherry instead of golden oak, but whatever I needed golden oak for our piano. But it does look a hell of a lot better than it did!
Now I let it dry then will do part 2.
Part 2= generous application of Feed n Wax.
It will sit for ~20 minutes absorbing the oily goodness.
Then I will polish it.
P.S. it is unsigned, the only marking it has is on the bottom.
Interesting to note the “teen prostitute” trope getting a workout again.
That rhetoric is why Epstein got away with his crimes for so long.
FOR THE RECORD:
Minors cannot give consent. Thus they cannot be prostitutes.
They are trafficking victims.
That is all.
Oh look it’s @maggieNYT aka Maggie Duranty aka MAGA Haberman’s husband @darehgregorian running that play in the NY Post for Epstein a decade and a half ago.
Should I mention that Maggie’s mom’s boss was Howard Rubenstein who just so happened to be Epstein’s PR guy?
Sure why not.
Howard is quoted here, article from 2007. Note the “teen hookers” rhetoric.
Rest In Pugnacity, Howard. I’m glad you’re dead.
This is an interesting case.

It connects to Wirecard, which was a major clusterfuck of corruption.

“Jose Luis De Jongh Atencio (De Jongh) was the former procurement officer & manager in Citgo’s Special Projects Group...between ~2013-2019, he accepted over $7 million in bribe payments in exchange for assisting businessmen & related companies in procuring contracts with Citgo.”
Hm I wonder if this connects. Timeline fits. 2017 and we know there is a criminal investigation into Trump inaugural funds, ain’t that right @TomBarrackJr?
