Hannity trying desperately to create negative image of Biden

“It really makes you wonder just how bad Biden is behind the scenes because in front of a camera, he’s really bad,” Trump advisor and animated heavy bag Sean Hannity fabricates as he sets up an out of context clip again.  “Here is yet another example from just a few hours ago.  Take a look.  [Rolls clip of a photo gaggle with Biden joking about a question a reporter yelled at him as they were being shuttled out of the room.]. Was he like, barking?  What was that?”

Federal judge knocks down Iowa border security bill

A federal judge ruled Iowa’s new law giving its state law enforcement and judicial officials power to enforce federal immigration regulations is illegal, NBC News reports, saying that the law oversteps the state’s authority.  “As a matter of politics, the new legislation might be defensible,” U.S. District Court Judge Stephen Locher, a Biden appointee, wrote in his decision, “As a matter of constitutional law, it is not.”

The law is similar to one that Texas enacted in that it allows local officials to file charges against migrants who have outstanding deportation orders, had been previously denied entry, or had been removed from the country under an immigration order.  To avoid prosecution, the detainee would be allowed to “self deport” and leave the country.

“I am disappointed in today’s court decision that blocks Iowa from stopping illegal reentry and keeping our communities safe,” Iowa Republican Attorney General Brenna Bird said, apparently referring to “illegal reentry” from Missouri. “Since Biden refuses to secure our borders, he has left states with no choice but to do the job for him.”

SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: Social media is bad for kids

U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy wants you to know Disqus is bad for your mental health and not just because of the periodic service issues.  In a New York Times Opinion piece, Murthy urges Congress to pass legislation that would mandate warnings that “regularly remind parents and adolescents that social media has not been proved safe.”

“Legislation from Congress should shield young people from online harassment, abuse and exploitation and from exposure to extreme violence and sexual content that too often appears in algorithm-driven feeds,” Murthy wrote.  “The measures should prevent platforms from collecting sensitive data from children and should restrict the use of features like push notifications, autoplay and infinite scroll, which prey on developing brains and contribute to excessive use.”

Citing the success of anti-smoking campaigns to reduce cigarette use, Murthy wants Congress to mandate social media companies release all information, data and studies they’ve commissioned or conducted relating to its effects on mental health, particularly when it targets children.  Let’s hope he has more success getting it from social media companies than the government did getting smoking addiction information from tobacco companies.

Notorious Texas GOP sexual predator Paul Pressler finally dead

Disgraced former Texas appellate judge and Southern Baptist Convention Vice President Paul Pressler, a far right leader in the Lone Star State credibly accused of sexually molesting at least six boys and young men over his long career in Evangelical politics, died earlier this month at the age 94 of undisclosed causes, the Texas Tribune reports after having found out his funeral was on Saturday.

No announcement was made by the Southern Baptist Convention of Pressler’s death which would make sense considering they paid out a settlement to one of his victims just six months ago.

Over the last year we picked up some of the Tribune’s quite excellent reporting on Pressler in the twilight of his life and were utterly shocked at the sheer hypocrisy and depravity of him and his law partner, the deeply homophobic former Harris County GOP chair Jared Woodfill. However maybe more eyebrow-raising was a 2015 Washington Post article titled “Long-time Texas conservative activist endorses [Senator Ted] Cruz for president,” which says “Pressler first met Cruz when the candidate was a teenager. They have stayed in touch though they are not particularly close.”

To be more serious, this guy was a fucking predator and, according to another young man who had worked as an intern out of Pressler’s house until he quit due to sexual harassment in 2017, the judge preyed upon a homeless 20 year-old man who had been caught stealing money from him, coercing the kid into massages and God knows what else. The witnesses’s account of the coercion was not graphic so much as downright revolting and heartbreaking so we don’t want to print it here.

There is however definitely one good thing about Paul Pressler that we can now write: He’s dead.

Nepotism at the highest ranks after Putin installs niece as deputy defense minister after purging senior military leaders

As he continues to purge the senior leaders of his national defense system as the Russian invasion in Ukraine struggles to advance, Vladimir Putin wants to make sure he’s surrounded by loyalists at the Kremlin by installing his daughter Ivanka Kushner niece Anna Tsivileva as deputy defense minister, Reuters reports.  Tsivileva will oversee social support to Russia’s military and their families.

As part of the defense ministry shakeup, Putin also put the son of his former prime minister to oversee military property management and construction, an area rife with corruption in Russia.  Tsivileva’s husband, Sergei Tsivilev, is already Putin’s energy minister.

Kansan Kris Kobach sues Pfizer for something vax conspiracy

“Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach is suing Pfizer for misleading claims it made related to the COVID vaccine Kobach and Deputy Attorney General Fran Oleen, Assistant Attorney General Kaley Schrader, and Assistant Attorney General Melanie Jack today announced the lawsuit at a press conference in Topeka. ‘Pfizer made multiple misleading statements to deceive the public about its vaccine at a time when Americans needed the truth,’ Kobach said. According to the complaint, filed today in Thomas County District Court, Pfizer misled Kansans about the vaccines’ risks, including to pregnant women and for myocarditis,” says Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, or KKK for short, in a statement on his latest effort to publicly beat a dead horse for the MAGA assholes’ enjoyment.

“Additionally, Pfizer claimed its vaccine protected against COVID variants, despite data showing otherwise. The pharmaceutical giant also suggested its vaccine prevented COVID transmission, but later admitted it had never studied whether its vaccine stopped transmission. The complaint also alleges that Pfizer coordinated with social media officials to censor speech critical of COVID-19 vaccines and declined to participate in the federal government’s vaccine development program, Operation Warp Speed, to avoid government oversight,” the statement continued.

We guess at this rate Kobach will get around to figuring out what to prosecute the Bidens for sometime in the winter of 2027, provided he’s still in office and hasn’t lost another Senate bid.

Modi Regime agent extradited to US after failed hit on Sikh leader

“Nikhil Gupta, also known as Nick, 53, an Indian national, was arrested and detained in the Czech Republic on June 30, 2023, and extradited pursuant to the bilateral extradition treaty between the United States and the Czech Republic. Gupta arrived in the US on June 14 and was presented on the charges today. According to court documents, last year, an Indian government employee (CC-1) worked together with Gupta and others in India and elsewhere to direct an assassination plot against an attorney and political activist, who is a US citizen of Indian origin, on US soil.”

“Gupta is an Indian national who resides in India, is an associate of CC-1, and has described his involvement in international narcotics and weapons trafficking in his communications with CC-1 and others. CC-1 is an Indian government agency employee who has variously described himself as a ‘senior field officer’ with responsibilities in ‘security management’ and ‘intelligence’ and has referenced previously serving in India’s Central Reserve Police Force and receiving ‘officer [] training’ in ‘battle craft’ and ‘weapons.’ CC-1 directed the assassination plot from India. In or about May 2023, CC-1 recruited Gupta to orchestrate the assassination of the victim in the US The victim is a vocal critic of the Indian government and leads a US-based organization that advocates for the secession of Punjab, a state in northern India that is home to a large population of Sikhs, an ethnoreligious minority group in India. The victim has publicly called for some or all of Punjab to secede from India and establish a Sikh sovereign state called Khalistan, and the Indian government has banned the victim and his separatist organization from India,” says a lengthy Justice Department press release about the Modi Regime’s failed effort to assassinate a New York-based Sikh community leader accused of involvement in a separatist movement for the Indian religious minority group.

Man awaiting trial on attempted murder charges escapes from California jail, possibly to find the real attempted murderer

The San Bernardino County, California Sheriff’s Office on Sunday put out an APB on 29 year-old Riverside man Deshaun Stamps following his escape from the recreation yard behind the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga at about noon, the San Bernardino Sun reports.

Stamps, who had been awaiting trial on charges of attempted murder, may be undergoing a harrowing search himself for the REAL attempted murderer, maybe a one-armed man who framed him to cover up some massive conspir… Oh wait. Shit. The Sun’s article says Stamps tried to grab a cop’s gun during a response to a report of vandalism… Goddammit. Yeah, so he probably wasn’t framed or anything like that. Why are so many real life crimes so freaking boring?

New York City to become Hell on Earth with complaints about heat

New York City this week will become utterly unbearable this week when rising temperatures will force residents to endure small talk like “Hot enough for you?” and “My brother cooked an egg on his car! See? He sent me the video,” creating a hellish nightmare from which the white noise of air conditioners running full blast will only provide a partial respite. May God have mercy on our souls.

The actual National Weather Service bulletin says “A Heat Advisory is issued when the combination of heat and humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any length of time. Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures. Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that has air conditioning. If you don’t have home air conditioning, continue to seek out cool spaces each day as long as it remains hot, and for a few days after if your home is still hot. Check on vulnerable friends, family members and neighbors. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency! In cases of heat stroke call 911.”

Biden to announce program for undocumented spouses of citizens

President Biden is expected on Monday to announce a new program to streamline legal residencies and provide a path to citizenship to the undocumented spouses of American citizens, a cohort estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands, the Wall Street Journal reports on something that will freak out right wingers despite the part about maintaining marriages and keeping families together.

Canadian official warns other deathtrap subs could be out there

Acting director of marine investigations for the Canadian Transportation Safety Board Lija Bickis last week wrote in a letter to the director general of the Transportation Ministry an outline the findings of the board’s investigation into the Titan submersible implosion last June but also warning her office had “identified that there have been other submersibles with people on board operating within Canadian waters and the Canadian EEZ, both before and after June 2023. Some of these submersibles are registered in Canada, some are registered outside of Canada, and some are without registration. The investigation has also established that there are Canadian regulatory requirements regarding these operations, and there is an internal Transport Canada (TC) policy on passenger submersible craft dated June 2005. However, the investigation has been unable to confirm whether the submersibles have been subject to oversight by TC or other certifying bodies.”

“The foregoing is provided for whatever follow-up action is deemed appropriate. The TSB would appreciate being advised of any action that is taken in this regard. Upon completion of investigation M23A0169, the Board will release its report into the occurrence,” the letter concluded.

Tantalizing, but guess we’ll have to wait until M23A0169 wraps up before we’ll find out if any other arrogant assholes like Stockton Rush got rewarded for their hubris in a similar way.

Orange Felon seems upset over stalled DC case again

“IF A PRESIDENT DOES NOT HAVE IMMUNITY, THE COURT WILL BE ‘OPENING THE FLOODGATES’ TO PROSECUTING FORMER PRESIDENTS. AN OPPOSING HOSTILE PARTY WILL BE DOING IT FOR ANY REASON, ALL OF THE TIME!” posted convicted felon former President Trump on Truth Social on Monday, at least the third or fourth time within the last few days he’s repeated the same talking points about his still currently successful effort to avoid going on trial in DC before the 2024 election on four felony charges stemming from his failed coup attempt after the 2020 election.

Nobody serious believes that the Supreme Court is going to give Joe Biden a blank check to do whatever he wants. The real “win” is that the Supreme Court (mostly) unnecessarily already has delayed this trial and few observers think it’s possible it go before a jury, much less even started, before the 2024 election. Most see Los Supremos imposing a review process requiring Circuit Judge Tanya Chutkan to rule on whether certain acts outlined in Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith’s indictment as official acts of the presidency versus what were “private,” as in campaign-related, acts. Her rulings would of course open to interlocutory appeal and thus further delay, this already on top of 70-something days still remaining in the normal pre-trial schedule set by Chutkan.

We try to be optimistic about it, that maybe Smith and his team would be able to both circumvent such a review process and trim down the pretrial preparation period by dropping from the indictment the elements of the conspiracy that rely upon what could fall under “official acts” like the conversations Trump had with Mike Pence and the coup attempt inside the Justice Department where the fat fuck tried to install soon-to-be-disbarred scumbag Jeffrey Clark. Some of Smith’s guy’s arguments at the Supreme Court hinted that this could be the direction that they’ll go.

SEC to take another shot at banning Ketamine Brain: report

Securities and Exchange Commission officials are looking into another bid to remove drug-addled billionaire man-boy Elon Musk from running a publicly traded company – namely Tesla – over his late disclosures of Twitter share purchases prior to his 2022 buyout, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The Journal got their hands on testimony from Musk in a deposition to the SEC after it surfaced in discovery in an Oklahoma firefighter pension fund’s lawsuit against Musk last month. In it, the asshole admitted to ignoring a rule requiring him to file a notice once his interest in Twitter passed 5 percent, waiting until his stake was at 9 percent and he was offered a seat on the board – while he and an adviser told a bank they were following the rule. The whole point of the scam was to keep Twitter’s share price from surging if other investors had known. Which they would have.

The South African dipshit saved at least $143 million on the scam, per the Journal, whose article overall seems to characterize this as a much stronger case than previous efforts to dickpunch Musk.

“Laughable and derogatory and highly insulting statement”

A new USA Today/Suffolk University survey of Black voters in Michigan finds that most don’t agree with convicted felon former President Trump’s line of bullshit about them sympathizing with him after being found guilty of falsifying business records to cover up his two-minute sexual encounter with a pornstar, with 79 disagreeing with the idea they should “see him as a fellow victim of discrimination and persecution in the justice system,” as Donald insists, while 15 percent agreed.

“That is a laughable and derogatory and highly insulting statement by convicted felon former President Trump,” said West Bloomfield IT consultant Lucell Trammer, who said he’s never personally had run-ins with the law but is “well aware… of the blatant mistreatment and inequities” Black Americans often encounter within in. A small majority, 55 percent of respondents, said the statements from Trump were outright offensive versus 41 percent who said they weren’t.
