It's Indictment Day (apologies to U2's A Beautiful Day)

It’s Indictment Day

The news is all doom
Shoots up from all around
A giant plume
District attorney gonna take you down

You're out of luck
All your treason and your grifting crime
Your hands are in cuffs
Wondering who it is that dropped the dime

You look around for any kind of friend
To take you out of this place
A Qultist you could make bend
Someone from your MAGAt base

It's your indictment day
Gavel falls, you feel like
It's indictment day
Next comes Arraignment Day

moRon DeFascist tweets that he will NOT honor an extradition request

The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head.

It is un-American.

The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent.

Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda.

Now. Question. Statute of Limitations on indictment

For Fraud, it’s 6 years. And this took place in 2016?

Isn’t it safe to assume that Bragg (and the jury members) are aware of the statute of limitations so this is likely a pretty serious charge?

RWNJs already spreading unconfirmed reports that it was a trans shooter

I've seen two different people offered up as the trans person who did the shooting.

Didn't take them long to come up with that.

Opinion: The Second Amendment is moot. Useless. Unnecessary. Repeal it.


What the Second Amendment Says

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."

Frequently Asked Questions

What was the original intent of the Second Amendment?

Many historians agree that the primary reason for passing the Second Amendment was to prevent the need for the United States to have a professional standing army. At the time it was passed, it seems it was not intended to grant a right for private individuals to keep weapons for self-defense.

Well, we have had a large standing army for a very long time. In fact, the standing army was created around (or before) the time the Constitution was actually written. But the size of the army was quite small back then. Militias were used to make up the content of that army when called upon in a time of need.

As the years went on, the size of the national military grew, to the point that militias were, in effect, extinct.

Yet the interpretation of the Second Amendment morphed over the years to include self-defense in general (which is NOT explicitly mentioned in the Second Amendment) and we all know since the mid/late 1900s that gun manufacturers have lobbied Congress (and funneled enormous sums of cash into the NRA which underwent its own coup in the 1970s to become a more radical organization and a de facto marketing arm for these gun manufacturers). And courts being stacked with pro-NRA/pro-gun judges have continued to distort the original intent of the Second Amendment.

So, yeah, in my opinion, the Second Amendment is a moot portion of the US Constitution and should be repealed.

MNPD: Shooter is dead following active situation at Covenant School (Nashville)

MNPD: Shooter is dead following active situation at Covenant School

An active shooter event has taken place at Covenant School, Covenant Presbyterian Church, on Burton Hills Dr. The shooter was engaged by MNPD and is dead. Student reunification with parents is at Woodmont Baptist Church, 2100 Woodmont Blvd.


“Although opponents of sensible gun control…continue to put the spotlight on the shooters’ motivations or unstable mental states, these are cynical diversions from the one obvious truth: The common thread…is the absurdly easy access to guns.”

Oh FFS. I give up


Lawyer, fighter for democracy, advocate for innovators and creators. Prosecuted Trump University @ NY AG. Commentator @ MSNBC CNN.

BREAKING: Manhattan grand jury not meeting today. Indictment likely delayed until next week.

Yet this raises a possibility that Manhattan DA has been told to stand down — because DOJ could indict Trump on Mar-a-Lago documents as early as tomorrow.

I’m gonna get drunk this weekend after getting the pool and lanai ready for warm weather
