I started the Sinema countdown 30 seconds after Warnock won and the "Sinema is irrrelevant now" talk

I'm not a psychic, I just play one on TV.

Warnock won and in the blink of an eye the pundits were saying "Manchin and Sinema are now irrelevant."

My FIRST thought was "She's going to do a Tulsi Gabbard and dramatically insert herself into the news cycle to prove everyone wrong."

I'll be observing the DU terms of service to the letter until her actual exit.

50 years from now, Geraldo Rivera's grandson will expose the contents of Donald Trump's vault.

Trump Organization found guilty on multiple counts of criminal tax fraud

What a shock. He SEEMS so HONEST.

Not looking forward to two NON-STOP YEARS of that BIG MOUTH, 24/7.

He's an ignorant asshole, sure, but he's smart enough to know that while he is still banned from Twitter and "Truth Social" reaches a FRACTION of his former audience, the media...EVERY cable channel...still reports in detail every time he breaks wind.

I am assuming all of the major networks will carry his "announcement," and will give him two years of unlimited, free air time.

He hasn't shut the fuck up since leaving the White House, and it's about to get much worse.

Today would be a lovely day for an indictment.

Wolf Blitzer has a question about today's midterms, which he posed to his panel

"If Republicans win big today, how much credit will we have to give Donald Trump?"

And, with a click of the remote, that was the end of my CNN Election Coverage viewing for today.

Lawrence Tribe: Clarence recusing himself " is not discretionary"

Op-Ed: Justice Thomas' refusal to recuse himself is thumbing his nose at the law

There’s a sad lesson for the law and the country in Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ Oct. 24 stay of a federal appeals court’s order that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) comply with a subpoena to testify before a grand jury in Fulton County, Ga. The district attorney there is conducting a criminal investigation into the parties involved in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

In government, even Alexander Hamilton's “least dangerous" branch — the judiciary — becomes dangerous when there is no enforcement mechanism behind a law.

Title 28, Section 455 of the United States Code is the federal statute that applies to Thomas. It provides: “Any justice, judge, or magistrate judge of the United States shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned" or his spouse "is known by the judge to have an interest that could be substantially affected by the outcome of the proceeding."

The statute says "shall" — meaning, this is not discretionary. Congress has imposed on federal judges a mandatory duty to disqualify themselves if their impartiality might be reasonably questioned. It does not matter whether Thomas issued Graham’s desired stay or denied it; he wasn’t supposed to rule at all.

It's a matter of whether Garland will draw the same conclusions as most non-Republicans

I don't want to hear any more crap about "YES, but what was Trump THINKING? Did he KNOW he lost, or did he BELIEVE he was doing the right thing?" That Andrea Mitchell / Chuck Todd both-sides-ism, the "let's play devil's advocate and discuss whether Trump could actually be considered guilty..."

Enough is enough. I think his motives were pretty transparent and the evidence is overwhelming. And as they said AGAIN today on MSNBC, after the hearings, "A referral from the Jan 6 Committee is NOT SOMETHING REQUIRED BY THE DOJ. They don't NEED it."

MARK MY WORDS...Jones will handle the $1 billion spanking EXACTLY LIKE Trump or Stone would

He will WHINE and hold a PITY PARTY and appeal to "PATRIOT" suckers and he WON'T BE BROKE FOR LONG.

He's cut from the SAME CLOTH as Trump and Roger Stone.

He's a GRIFTING POS and he may not get all of the money back overnight, but he WILL squeeze the MAGAts. This is GUARANTEED.

I am delighted that DU's Terms of Service no longer apply to Tulsi Gabbard.

I was on my best behavior. Really I was. And the irony is that I have nothing to say about her right now, but if I did, I wouldn't have to keep her status as a Democrat in mind while I said it.

Her social media blitz yesterday was beyond sad. A FLOOD of "I want to tell you why I made this decision" met with a flood of "I don't care why, I'm just glad to see you gone" responses as she rushed into the welcoming arms of Tucker Carlson and Joe Rogan.

Self awareness really is a tough nut to crack for some folks.

I'm thoroughly fed up with the media's "sympathetic" portrayal of Trump and his legal woes.

"He's not happy."


"He could lose his businesses"


"He would not be able to go to trial with the New York AG because he could not control his ego and impulses"


He has EARNED this. It's a lifetime of lies and deception and fraud come home to roost. And while I DO NOT ANTICIPATE A SINGLE DAY OF PRISON TIME, I DO believe he could take a broadside in his wallet, and HE'S EARNED THAT TOO.

I guess telling us how Trump is feeling represents "news" to the news media. Sadly, I REALLY DON'T CARE IF HE'S HAPPY OR SAD.

Trump 2024 announcement "on pause" due to "legal problems" & "legal bills." NO! OMFG, NO!

According to a report from the Washington Post, Donald Trump's plans to announce his run for the Republican Party presidential nomination in 2024 has been put "on pause" due to his growing legal problems and equally expanding legal bills.

After a week in which the former president saw his bid to slow down a DOJ investigation into the theft of government documents with the appointment of a special master blow up in his face, and New York Attorney General Letitia James announce a plan to seek $250 million from the Trump family for real estates fraud, the Post is reporting that the former president is facing multiple obstacles to getting his incipient campaign off the ground.

"These and other setbacks for Trump come as at least a half-dozen additional legal efforts proceed against him and his allies — committing him to months of legal wrangling as he seeks to raise his political profile for a possible 2024 bid while also increasing the prospect of becoming the first former U.S. president to face indictment after leaving office," writes the paper.

One obstacle beyond Trump's control are plans by a group of Democratic lawyers to keep him off the ballot if he does announce due to his connection to the Jan 6 insurrection.
