The shiz just hit the fan. The Grand Jury just indicted the Trump Organization and CFO Weisselberg. He's scheduled to surrender tomorrow morning at the DA's office. The organization will be represented by a lawyer. This will get all of Trump's loans called. He's out of business and on his way to bankruptcy. He's had companies like Trump University and the Trump Foundation indicted before, but never the parent company. More than ever, no lawyers will want to represent him, since they will never get paid.

Welp, Donald Trump did brag about not paying taxes like a gossipy middle school girl running her big mouth, unable to keep a YUUGE secret. coffee

....and speaking of running the mouth like a middle school girl, Eric Trump was on Fox News whining about the "politicalized effort" to hurt the Trump Organization.

Eric accused the Manhattan's DA office of "focusing on $3.5 million to take down a political opponent" as he insisted "crime 'is rampant" and people are leaving "dirty" and "disgusting" New York City "in record numbers.'"

Eric even went a step further by weighing in on the alleged scheme the company is accused of. He dismissed the allegations describing the alleged kickbacks as nothing more than "employment perks." But that's conceding exactly the point at issue: The Manhattan DA argues that the Trump Organization paid Weisselberg using these "perks" - such as renting him an apartment in New York City and leases on Mercedes Benz one for Weisselberg and one for his wife - to compensate him and avoid paying taxes. That's a crime, and calling the non-salary benefits "employment perks" doesn't reduce culpability. Eric simply confirmed the prosecutors' account of events.

Hmm

Doug Thompson once wrote of a politico as "having diarrhea of the mouth." The same can be said of this inept Trump Org nepotism hire, Eric Trump.

Massachusetts police responding to group of 'heavily armed men' claiming to 'not recognize our laws'

Quote
..."during a motor vehicle stop, several heavily armed men claiming to be from a group that does not recognize our laws exited their vehicles and fled into the woodline" near Interstate Highway 95.

The incident unfolded around 1:30 a.m. when a state trooper came across a group of 8 to 10 people refueling on the side of the I-95 highway in Wakefield, a suburb of Boston. The group was dressed in military-style uniforms, carried tactical gear like body cameras and helmets and had long guns slung over their shoulders.
Intelligence Agencies are hearing chatter of a 1/6 redux when "Trump is re-instated" in August. Crazy right-wing crackers think that Trump is going to be POTUS again.

That's great if they are going to wait until Trump is "reinstated", since that is never going to happen. He might get reelected in 2024, 2028, etc. but "reinstatement" is not a real thing. Well, in Cloud Cuckoo Land it might be, but most of us don't live there. I think this mass delusion might be a side effect of Covid-19 brain infection. The percentage of the population that believes these impossible things happens to be about the same percentage of Covid-19 victims who end up with one of more Long Hauler symptoms.

It won’t even stand and salute!”

Nope.

He's heading for a 2024 re-match with Biden.

Weissenberg is headed to jail though. For crimes the HE committed as CFO.

**edit** Love the new sig line!

We'll see what happens when Ivanka gets indicted. She did a lot of the same stuff as Weissenberg, and I doubt she would spend a day in jail to protect Daddy Trump.
