Wanted to like Chris Wallace. Wanted to take

him into the fold. Watched three of his interviews tonight and he's basically still RW to the core. Sad

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff must not like Ivanka

As a Dem, do we naturally want and try to find a way to hope that

people are innocent of crimes despite all odds?

I think I do that, but odd/funny that doesn't apply to trump at all.

Odds are probably 99.99% that Murdaugh is guilty but trying to find a glimmer that he is not.

Special counsel asks judge to compel Mike Pence to testify in Jan. 6 probe


Washington — Federal prosecutors have asked the chief judge in Washington, D.C.'s federal court to compel former Vice President Mike Pence to comply with a grand jury subpoena and testify as a witness in special counsel Jack Smith's investigation into the events surrounding the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, three people familiar with the investigation told CBS News.

The motion to compel Pence's testimony — filed in secret to Chief Judge Beryl Howell in recent days — came after lawyers for former President Donald Trump asserted executive privilege in response to Pence's subpoena, the people said.

That assertion of executive privilege on Pence's subpoena, the people added, is in line with how Trump's team has responded to related subpoenas over the past year, with Trump's attorneys often arguing that private conversations or interactions with a president should remain confidential.

Difference between freezing rain / sleet best explanation

All precipitation falls through the atmosphere on its way to the Earth's surface. Imagine a drop or flake falling through a long tube that contains the air between the clouds and the Earth.

The air inside the imaginary tube is the atmosphere. Differences in temperatures in different parts of the atmosphere account for the differences we see between snow, sleet, and freezing rain.

The liquid precipitation that falls to Earth's surface is rain. Rain can begin as snow, but by the time it reaches the Earth's surface, it has melted because the temperature closer to Earth is warmer.

If you've ever thought it strange that it's raining when the temperature outside is below freezing, it's probably because the temperature higher up in the atmosphere is still above freezing.

Snow forms in clouds at temperatures below freezing. As snow falls through the atmosphere, the air remains at least 32° F or colder. In order for a snowflake to reach Earth, it must remain frozen from cloud to surface.

But can it be too cold to snow? Sometimes! The colder it gets, the less water vapor there will be in the air…and less water vapor in the air means less chance of snow.

Sleet occurs when a snowflake falls through the atmosphere and warms up a bit before refreezing. The snowflake begins its journey frozen. As it passes through a thin layer of warm air in the atmosphere, it melts a bit.

It then re-enters another pocket of cold air before reaching the surface. The snowflake refreezes and becomes an ice pellet we call sleet. Sleet typically bounces when it hits the ground.

Freezing rain follows a similar journey as sleet, but instead of a thin pocket of warm air, freezing rain falls through a larger pocket of warm air in the middle of its journey. Freezing rain begins as snow, but when it reaches the warm pocket, it melts and becomes rain.

Before hitting the ground, it passes through a very shallow pocket of cold air, which cools it some but not enough to turn it into sleet. Instead, when the water droplet reaches the surface of the Earth and comes in contact with cold objects (such as cars, streets, or trees), it freezes immediately and turns into ice.

It's been 770 days since trump inspired the insurrection of our government

And he's running like a viable 2024 candidate,!!.

Thru his blatant negligence, thousands are dead, children separated from their parents, time honored traditions broken.

We've got to all think and act like this is the most absurd thing ever, his running.

"Meatball Ron" in, "DeSanctimonious" out

TFGs nickname for DeSantis. Fewer syllables, makes fun of his stature, and denigrates Italians. Win, win, win for the most evil person.


But what does “meatball” even mean? The New York Times calls it “an apparent dig at [DeSantis’s] appearance,” which I take to suggest a shorter, pudgier frame—while hinting at a lock of social grace. But “meatball” is also a slur against Italian-Americans (all eight of DeSantis’ great-grandparents came here from Italy).

Somewhere, Don Rickles must be thinking that if he were born 30 years later, he might have been president.

It’s not like DeSantis can complain or cry foul about this. It’s hard to imagine the current governor of Florida trying to curry sympathy from a Republican electorate that couldn’t get enough of it when Trump called Elizabeth Warren “Pocohontas.”
