My favorite line of the RIA article "Sources note that possible US moves could include restrictive measures and the expulsion of Russian diplomats, whom they consider "intelligence officers." Gee wonder where we would get that idea. Italy, Bulgaria, US, and pretty much every post

Thousands of people converged on Arizona’s Tonto National Forest over the weekend for an “unauthorized event,” wildlife officials said, and mayhem ensued.

Forest Protection Officers out on patrol Saturday night described a “surge of people,” plus cars, RVs and all-terrain vehicles, some driven sober, some not, according to the U.S. Forest Service.

“Over 5,000 people showed up placing the public, Forest Service personnel and first responders at risk,” the service said.

Gunfire echoed from people target shooting “with unknown backstops.”

Recap of NRA Chief lapierre's testimony in bankruptcy trial

https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/nra-chief-wayne-lapierre-faces-grilling-during-highly-anticipated-bankruptcy-trial-testimony/

Snip of the opening but the whole long thing is an interesting read:

On the third day of the National Rifle Association’s closely watched bankruptcy trial, the star witness took the virtual witness stand. Wayne LaPierre, the gun rights group’s CEO and executive vice president, has faced questions about claims by New York regulators that he used donor money as his personal “piggy bank” for globe-trotting safaris, yachting excursions and a “glam squad” for his wife.

In her first day of questioning, LaPierre conceded that he did not inform several senior NRA officials that he would file his bankruptcy petition before he did so, including a board member who would have been his successor. LaPierre also testified that he did not inform board members about the establishment of a company Sea Girt, LLC, which he formed in Texas for the purpose of filing for bankruptcy here. Described by regulators as a “shell company,” Sea Girt had assets exceeding its debts at the time.

LaPierre’s prior depositions and allegations in the New York lawsuit make the NRA chief’s ongoing testimony highly anticipated.

In a bombshell lawsuit last year, New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) accused LaPierre of inserting a “poison pill contract” to consolidate his power within the NRA and guarantee himself an income for life worth more than $17 million. LaPierre allegedly used the non-profit’s money for luxury travel, an excursion on a 108-foot yacht called Illusions, and all-expense-paid safaris around the world. The NRA justified filing for bankruptcy in Texas as an effort to avoid their court-ordered annihilation, but the trial there has spilled more of the organization’s secrets.

Ten more members of Congress, including Maxine Waters, Karen Bass & Jerry Nadler, have joined a lawsuit by Bennie Thompson & the NAACP accusing Trump, Giuliani, the Oath Keepers & Proud Boys w/conspiring to incite the Capitol riot.

@alanfeuer
The federal incitement suit has also been expanded to name War Boys LLC, a company run by Proud Boys leaders Enrique Tarrio, Joe Biggs & Ethan Nordean (the last two are under indictment in connection w/the Capitol riot.) Tarrio has been named personally as a defendant as well.

"I'm actually okay at 28%. The level we got to in our tax plan on the corporate side was actually a bit lower than we needed to go... I always thought that a compromise rate in the mid 20's made sense."

Two bots, one selfie. Greetings from Jezero Crater, where I’ve taken my first selfie of the mission. I’m also watching the #MarsHelicopter Ingenuity as it gets ready for its first flight in a few days. Daring mighty things indeed.

Greetings from Mars!

Here's the full scene from the first-ever selfie by @NASAPersevere. It was stitched together from 62 individual images taken with the WATSON instrument at the end of the rover’s arm, first while looking at the #MarsHelicopter & then back at the camera.
