Trump's bankers questioned by prosecutors in "significantly escalating" criminal probe

Looking forward to F.B.I. raids, seized assets and handcuffs for tRump and family on 1/20/21 (unless they sneak out of the country before then).

"The Manhattan district attorney's office has interviewed employees of President Donald Trump's bank and insurance broker in a signal that the criminal investigation into the president's business practices has "intensified" just before he leaves office, according to The New York Times."

"The bankers determined he was overvaluing some of his real estate assets by as much as 70 percent," two former executives said, but decided to approve loans to his company, including one that he used to pay off a loan to another division of the bank.

2 fake states are trying to join the Supreme Court case to throw out votes in Georgia, Wisconsin, Mi

Yes, that's Right.
They made up states to join the lawsuit.

"Two states that do not exist are trying to join a Supreme Court case to invalidate votes in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
The lawyer for "New California" and "New Nevada," told Insider his "new states in waiting" have an "absolute right" to intervene in the case."

"The amicus brief for the fake states was filed by Robert E. Thomas III, an attorney with an address listed in Nevada who is a member of the state bar in California, a state that is real.

Thomas told Insider in an interview that New Nevada and New California are "new states in waiting," and that each is a registered 501(c)(4) organization attempting to form new states using the proper Constitutional process. He said states like Pennsylvania administered their elections in a way that's "arbitrary and capricious."

GOP lawmaker introduces bill to eliminate federal prescribing requirements

snip ~

"House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) introduced legislation on Tuesday aimed at eliminating federal prescribing requirements."

snip ~
"If federal prescribing requirements are eliminated, patients will almost certainly continue to consult with doctors before taking any potentially risky medications; for their part, the pharmaceutical companies will continue to be incentivized to produce the best possible and most transparent warning labels to protect their reputations and limit any potential liability," he said.


If I understand this correctly, Biggs wants people to be able to get whatever medications they want without a prescription.

Now imagine a hypothetical where an orange clown tells the circus audience to take a potentially life threatening drug like Hydroxychloroquine with no prescription needed. This could be the 21st Century's equivalent to Jim Jones' Kool-Aid.

Well at least now we know why tRump refuses to concede.

Putin Says He’s Not Ready to Recognize Biden as U.S. President. In other words he hasn't given tRump the okay to let Democracy proceed.

Trump lost. Joe Biden is our next President. We're just waiting for time to catch up to the facts.

Democracy will prevail. But Democracy isn't a cheap date. We've already paid a staggering price on every level and we have a long climb to return to the place from where we fell. But we will return and from there we'll move to an even better place than we were before. Because that's what Democracy does and that's how society evolves. And that is who we are.

We have an opportunity to become a more perfect union, to become more inclusive. We have another chance to become a more just society, a more caring people. We have another chance to embrace what is right and good and true of our better selves. It's who we are as Democrats. It's why we're here.
Hopefully we've become more savvy to the ways of those who want to see Democracy demolished. We're more alert to the methods used to divide, misinform and attempt to conquer. Congress has serious work ahead to see that this can never happen again. As do we all.

We must not return to "normal". We were living in a version of "normal" that allowed the last 4 years to happen.
We must strive for a new normal. One that we can all live with as we honor each other's pursuit of happiness. We'll move forward from that point and begin fresh on a path that will benefit America and the world for generations to come. Because we will it so.

Is tRump's Twitter account considered official or is it meaningless and meant to be ignored?

The reason I ask is because if it's not official, how can he fire anyone via Twitter?

And if it is official, that means government agencies must monitor it for his random declarations and firings so they can generate the paperwork needed to comply with his random wishes. What kind of stable and sane government does that? This is dysfunctional to the nth degree.

If he is able to fire people via Tweet, that should be proof that it is an official account.
When the time comes there should be plenty of evidence of sedition and whatever other charges can be brought against him.

In Debt and Desperate Trump Tries Duping the Devoted Yet Again

His official "Election Defense Fund" is only a cover to get the gullible to fork up more campaign money. Is anyone shocked that they spent it all and didn't pay the bills?
The fine print states that 60% of the election defense fund money will go to pay off campaign debt.
My guess is the other 40% will go for overhead. Is Ivanka managing that part?

Is it possible elections will be called when all is in place to stop civil unrest?

Maybe everyone needs to be in place first due to the unpredictable nature of tRump's potentially violent devotees.

From The Military Times:

At least 4,700 National Guard troops in 18 states have been activated as of Tuesday afternoon to support the Nov. 3 general election in several capacities. The missions range from assisting with cyber defense, working the polls, and standing-by in case of post-election civil unrest.

All of the troops currently activated are on state orders and are under the control of their respective governors.

From the NY Times: Not all National Guard Troops will be wearing uniforms.
