This is the story of the election. Despite all of the GOP voter suppression tactics, Black people were willing to wait in lines for hours to vote Trump out. It kills Republicans that they couldn’t stop us from voting. Thankfully, Biden isn’t dumb enough to sign Rick Scott’s Voter Oppression on Steroids thing.

The critical element of every “libertarian paradise” is that each new batch of rubes thinks of themselves as exceptional and brave, and thus don’t have the bandwidth to acknowledge how hard society-building actually is, and how much their particular project requires existing, interconnected systems to get up and running.

As a consequence they always briskly walk into the same extended, motionless fist.

a rando’s thoughts on flynn

But did Trump succeed in protecting himself?

1) To accept the pardon, Flynn has to admit guilt. Which means any accessory crimes not covered have a guilty admission tied to them.

2) Flynn isn’t covered by 5th amendment protection (he can’t legally incriminate himself for crimes he is pardoned from). As such, any court, grand jury and congressional panel can require testimony and Flynn has to testify or face contempt charges.

3) Flynn’s trial is in court. A smart defense lawyer will argue for closing the case, a smart prosecutor will ask for Flynn to elocute first. That elocution has no 5th amendment protection anymore, and if elocution contains another set of lies (remember - Flynn lying got him into this mess), opens another set of crimes and might invalidate the pardon.

So, it looks like saving Flynn only opens light into the process. Trump may think it saves himself, but Trump has a limited understanding of legal process.

A pardon comes with no legal requirement to admit guilt. Also, I am not a lawyer, but assume you can still plead the 5th if there is a chance your testimony could be used against you in a a different jurisdiction, like a state court.

The GOP is never considered to have agency, not from the left, not from the right. Nope, Dems are just plain the root of all evil because apparently all that it would need to change things is if Dems were sufficiently motivated and refuse to because seekit Republicans or some goddamn shit.

re: #43 danarchy

Burdick does require allocution to the crimes being pardoned for.

If you’re pardoned on the federal crimes, you lose the 5A protection on those crimes. If there are state charges, then the 5A would apply as to those charges. It would depend on the facts and circumstances as to what overlap is present, if any.

Cranberry-orange sauce is yummy. It doesn’t take forever to make and freezes well, so you can have it with your turkey at Second Thanksgiving. And if you don’t like, that means there’s more for me.

What? You don’t do Second Thanksgiving? That’s when your friend-and-neighbor has bought an extra turkey which her husband cooks on the BBQ and you and your kids and their spouses and her kid and spouse all get together for a giant potluck in January.
Which won’t happen any more than First Thanksgiving will this year. Sigh.

I’ve done turkey before for other holidays, but since it’s just the mrs and I, we’ll be doing just a turkey breast. I figure I’ll do a balsamic sauce with tarragon, sage, and rosemary. I’ll roast up a bunch of vegies as a side - parsnips, carrots, sweet potatoes, zucchini. I have chicken soup and matzah balls made previously, and just made cranberry sauce for first time - bag of cranberries, honey, water, orange juice, orange zest, and let it do its thing.

No stuffing though. Don’t need the carbs. Figure that the pan sauces should be good for any/all of that.

re: #61 lawhawk

We’re doing a small-ish turkey because we have plenty of room in the freezer for leftovers. We’ve been getting “heritage” birds for several years because they are just tastier. And we feel better about the way they are raised. (As God is my witness, these turkeys can fly! At least enough to get up on a shed roof, as shown in photos of the farm where they’re raised.)
Said bird is currently residing in brine in the refrigerator. The cranberry sauce is done. Tomorrow I’ll make a small batch of stuffing (yes, to go in the bird) and a couple other sides. We really don’t have anything for dessert because a whole pumpkin pie for 2 people is just too much, but that’s OK.
We’ll Zoom with the kids and then Mr. C. and I will dine with each other.

Repeating my comments from 11/8, when Kasich’s name first reared its ugly head:

Before Kasich urges Biden to meet Congressional Republicans halfway, he should STFD and STFU. Kasich is, and always has been, a gigantic asshole and I don’t get the Dem acceptance of his bullshit. Him speaking at the convention nauseated me.

Oh, and he was quite the successful Biden surrogate—Trump won Ohio in 2016 with 51.69% of the vote; 2020, it jumped to 53.40%.

Everyone has a line that shouldn’t be crossed. Mine is Kasich (and a few others.) Putting a pig like him in the cabinet, with his anti-woman and other assorted nasty, ugly positions, is a slap in the face to many, many people. As Molly Ivins said, You Got to Dance with Them What Brung You. And Kasich didn’t “brung” us any damn thing.

I’m not saying it would ever make me vote for a Republican (it wouldn’t) or turn me against Biden, but it could certainly put a damper on my actions and donations going forward.

The corrupted Christian Court knocks more bricks out of the wall between church and state…

washingtonpost.com

The Supreme Court’s new conservative majority late Wednesday night sided with religious organizations in New York that said they were illegally targeted by pandemic-related restrictions imposed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to combat spiking coronavirus cases.

The 5 to 4 order was the first show of solidified conservative strength on the court since the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who replaced liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The decision differed from the court’s previous practice of deferring to local officials on pandemic-related restrictions, even in the area of constitutionally protected religious rights.

Whatever Churches want, churches now get thanks to the corrupted Court.

That the people of the nation would be so desperate and hungry for “progressive” policies that they’d insist upon a firebrand like Sanders to lead us to utopia.

When complete, Invenergy’s 1.3 gigawatt solar farm will be America’s largest: Named the Samson Solar Energy Center, the $1.6 billion Texas project will be built in five phases, with each phase switching on as they are completed. The farm is scheduled to be operational by 2023, capable of generating enough electricity to power 300,000 homes. Invenergy says Samson will also generate 600 construction jobs over the next 36 months, and provide $250 million in land owner payments plus nearly $200 million in property tax revenues over the life of the project.

re: #89 🌹UOJB!

The corrupted Christian Court knocks more bricks out of the wall between church and state…

washingtonpost.com

The Supreme Court’s new conservative majority late Wednesday night sided with religious organizations in New York that said they were illegally targeted by pandemic-related restrictions imposed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to combat spiking coronavirus cases.

The 5 to 4 order was the first show of solidified conservative strength on the court since the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who replaced liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The decision differed from the court’s previous practice of deferring to local officials on pandemic-related restrictions, even in the area of constitutionally protected religious rights.

Whatever Churches want, churches now get thanks to the corrupted Court.

Inexpensive rapid in-home Covid-19 testing is a technology that much of the world is embracing, while the US continues to resist and ignore. Sure it’s way less sensitive than pcr tests, but that is an advantage if you want the result, pos or neg, to indicate whether or not you are likely to be infectious right NOW.

I’m actually surprised that QAnon doesn’t seem to have found fertile soil in Belgium; after all, they had the notorious Marc Dutroux case, what with Dutroux’s allegations that he was simply a procurer for high-ranking kiddie rapists (those allegations were never proven and were almost certainly Dutroux trying to save his worthless hide). That being said, the Belgian authorities royally fucked up during the investigation, leading to a good deal of justifiable public outrage.

For those unfamiliar with the Dutroux case, here it is….it’s rather grim reading: en.wikipedia.org

Yay, capitalism. Never let a disaster go to waste.

Billionaires in the U.S. have grown their wealth by over a third — or by more than $1 trillion — since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the nation in March, a new report finds.

At the same time, the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic has left millions of Americans jobless and struggling to pay their mortgages, rents and food bills.

A report released Wednesday by the Washington-based Institute for Policy Studies tracked the net worth of the over 650 of the wealthiest Americans from March 18 to Nov. 24, and found that dozens joined the ranks of billionaires during this period and that 29 saw their wealth double amid the pandemic.

The net worth of this minuscule group is twice the amount of wealth of the bottom 50% of U.S. households — about 160 million people, per the report.

re: #119 Eventual Carrion

Just cannot get it through many peoples heads that masks are not primarily to keep you from GETTING COVID, it is to keep you from SPREADING COVID.

The problem is that masks make people think they’re safe from spreading infection and/or and being infected so they take risks, they go to visit with friends and wear a cloth mask from Etsy and spend two hours face-to-face a metre apart talking and spreading the disease, not only between themselves but also to everyone around them in the coffee-shop or bar or wherever. They then go home feeling virtuous and looking down on other people they see in the street not wearing a mask AT ALL! How dare they, don’t they know how serious this disease is?

Wear a mask if you absolutely must go out and interact with other people. Don’t use it as an EXCUSE to go out and interact with people. Stay home, stay isolated as much as possible.

Decades of work to undo all the progress made through blood, sweat, and tears by the working class has resulted in a New Gilded Age.

I drove through Southern Alabama mostly along 331 and 189 this past week far off the major highways and deep into Trump country. It is destitute with small town centers literally falling down, extremely poor whites and trailer and homes falling apart everywhere, and little Churches built in the 40’s and 50’s along every mile. There are still Trump flags here and there but probably not nearly as much now as during the formal campaign. The despair is palpable. So is the sense of entitlement where you can live your entire life without meeting anyone who is not your own “white” identity or else a poor black person or in any regard anyone who is not fundamentalist Christian.

The small towns were built during the age of trade unions, family farms, and domestic manufacturing. Those days are gone and thanks to Republican control now will not return. But the voters here don’t care. They just fear change and fear falling even further down the well of despair. And with despair comes the inclination to favor dictators or their wanna-bes. Republicans happily assume this role and the mantle of dictator quickly and naturally so here we are. Trump and his more capable, less vulgar followup candidates are not going away either. The masks are off, the way forward revealed, and it is by naked authoritarianism and hatred for all “others.” We are in for a rough ride for at least another 20 years.

Dump that into a large bowl, mix with a cup of mayo, a cup of plain yogurt and a cup of shredded sweet coconut. Season with a dash of allspice to taste. Chill and serve on Ritz style crackers.

(originally my mother would have used all miracle whip for the dressing but my ex hates it so came up with the mayo/yogurt combo that I must admit tastes better.)

Re General Flynn’s reported work on Russian plans to build nuclear power plants in the Middle East. OK, not declaring to the US government he was working on behalf of Atomstroyexport as he should have, yes but I saw way too many American hair-on-fire reports about these negotiations and I’m puzzled why it’s automatically a bad thing.

Nuclear power plants are nothing to do with nuclear weapons development and proliferation. Atomstroyexport sells reactors to all sorts of countries just like Westinghouse does in the States. The only done deal for nuclear power plants in the Middle East are the four Korean-built KPR1400 reactors in the UAE which are nearing completion and the Bushehr reactor in Iran which was finished by, surprise, Atomstroyexport. There’s a second reactor being built by Atomstroyexport at Bushehr, a more modern VVER-1000 (but not the top-of-the-line TOI model, pity) and plans for a third but no hole-in-the-ground, bent metal and poured concrete quite yet.

Yeah, and seeming to ignore the fact that all those business he cites as being allowed to open are doing so with notable (and clearly-demarcated) restrictions on masking and capacity. Of course, the enforcement of said rules is pretty loose - it’s usually up to the store owner/manager - but in theory, or at least on the face of the laws, some restrictions in the name of public health are (at least so far) considered permissable.
But of course, once you get into the realm of “religious freedom”….

Exactly - the problem is that Biden will probably not go down that road, and he won’t stand a chance of getting any judges appointed given the current state of affairs - in which case, he should go down the road less travelled and make his appointments acting judges, just to make the turtle go apoplectic.

You know it’s bad when even the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra shuts down their livestreaming concerts due to COVID19.

The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra has halted all livestream performances, citing COVID-19 “rampaging in our community.”

The decision comes two weeks after the nonprofit canceled a performance after someone directly involved with the livestream tested positive for the virus. A spokesperson declined to say whether it was a musician or a staff person, citing health privacy concerns.

In August, the orchestra had canceled its fall schedule of in-person concerts, but continued making music at Ordway Concert Hall, livestreaming shows on its website.

But on Wednesday, the nonprofit’s leaders announced the suspension of those concerts “to protect the health of our musicians, staff and crew.”

In an e-mail, Jon Limbacher, the SPCO’s managing director and president, and Kyu-Young Kim, artistic director and principal violin, said the decision was based on “two simple facts.”

“First, COVID-19 is rampaging in our community. The positivity rate is currently at 15% and growing. Second, the primary means for reducing transmission risk … is to increase the amount of testing beyond what we are already doing. However, because of increased testing demand in our community and longer turnaround times for test results, we are not able to manage risk with more testing at this time.”

SSDD. The same nutters said the same shit in ‘16, sure that 4 years of Trump would cause such damage that the workers of America would rise up and push Bernie into the White House. That the people of the nation would be so desperate and hungry for “progressive” policies that they’d insist upon a firebrand like Sanders to lead us to utopia.

Before Sanders, it was gonna be Nader. Before Nader, it was supposed to be Perot. Ever 4 years, these assholes think that the country is hungry for “progressives,” and then get bent out of shape when their chosen unicorn fails to get past Super Tuesday.

Perot was a totally different animal who attracted a completely different set of voters. He was the truly brilliant successful businessman that Trump plays on TV and held similar economic views about exporting jobs. He was crazy — but not a sociopath.

without a plan, there’s nothing left to hold onto but bitter grievance - the feeling of their way of life being eradicated by outside forces - when in actuality they’ve done it to themselves

you can sit in the mud and wallow over the way you wish things otherwise were.
or you do something about your situation.

It is outside forces that have changed their life. Technology, automation, outsourcing — all imposed on these small communities by the outside world. And these forces are moving ever faster while we humans are still the same creatures who lived in hunter/gatherer societies millennia ago.

It’s not so simple to adapt to these transformations at the breakneck speed they are arriving — your life is upended, with no real help to manage the changes — your skills are suddenly obsolete and, even when they aren’t, the job is moved to Asia to someone who earns a fraction of your salary — and the only positions left here also pay a fraction of your salary.

My brother worked under him (technically: he worked for a company that Perot bought out) and he said he was self-destructive crazy. His company was purchased, shelved, and then re-sold for a fraction. For no good reason. The buyers (the original owners) took it back but they had lost precious time and resources.

“It is not a small sacrifice. These moments with our loved ones — time that’s lost — can’t be returned. Yet, we know it’s the price of protecting each other and one we don’t pay alone. Isolated in our own dining rooms and kitchens, scattered from coast to coast, we are healing together.”

No expending the courts, not even filling vacancies. No statehood for DC. No expanding the size of the House. No voting rights act. No Covid relief.

Nothing.

New Senate elections in two years. Meanwhile, we hold the line.

And never forget to announce that it’s repugs in the Senate who are responsible.

Hang on, is this person saying the people “wore masks, distanced, and followed all subsequent protocols” after they “gotten the virus”? They would probably explain why they “still gotten sick”.

either collective rural and small town life figures this out (rethink how to prepare), or they’ll just wallow in the mud and blame ‘the other’ until there is no one left to hear the whines

Yeah, well, the big problem is that the underlying social/political attitudes* which prop up the societies of “rural and small town life”, aren’t just restricted to those localities: hence the general (seemingly) intractable hold “conservatism” (via its partisan expression in the GOP) maintains in all those “red states”. And to which our Federal system allows an outsize influence.

* IMO, basically a conservative, conformist, authoritarian “ultranationalism”; founded on codified prejudices and propped up by ostentatious religiosity. Not universal, of course, but prevalent and unavoidable. YMMV…

Does anyone know whether someone with the requisite skills has plowed through the Sidney Powell filings and can testify whether some new Federalist Society judge might find merit in the accusations? You need a trial to evaluate the documents and it would seem that such a trial could take weeks — well past the inauguration. So is the whole purpose to throw out the votes in those states? Only the presidential votes? To get SCOTUS to rule that the case has merit and the votes cannot count until a lower court has adjudicated the findings? Given that SCOTUS just issued a 5-4 ruling to approve the zombie apocalypse, I would not put any evil beyond this corrupted SCOTUS, especially given Roberts fondness for voter suppression.

There’s a big difference between suppressing someone’s ability to vote before an election, and tossing their vote out after an election. (In the sense of how obviously corrupt it looks/why I don’t think Trump is going to get this election overturned at the Supreme Court, there are too many states needing to be overturned, and Biden won them by too large a margin.)
