Trump's legacy of losing:

- Worst economy since the depression
- Worst Debt Ever (was the worst GDP to Debt ratio in 70 years before the virus)
- Trade War failures
- Social unrest
- Piss poor response to the pandemic which has made the economy worse
- Impeached

Keeping the Goon Squads in perspective.

Trump has failed at every other task of his Presidency. So he makes up a fantasy about being a "law and order" president and produces action-adventure films to entertain his "base" so they won't abandon him. They're so easily duped....

Judge orders Michael Cohen to be released from prison....

NEW YORK (AP) — A judge ordered the release from prison of President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer on Thursday, saying he believes the government retaliated against him for planning to release a book about Trump before November's election.

Michael Cohen's First Amendment rights were violated when he was ordered back to prison on July 9 after probation authorities said he refused to sign a form banning him from publishing the book or communicating publicly in other manners, U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein said during a telephone conference.

Hellerstein ordered Michael Cohen released from prison by 2 p.m. on Friday.

“How can I take any other inference than that it’s retaliatory?” Hellerstein asked prosecutors, who insisted in court papers and again Thursday that Probation Department officers did not know about the book when they wrote a provision of home confinement that severely restricted Cohen's public communications.

“I’ve never seen such a clause in 21 years of being a judge and sentencing people and looking at terms of supervised release,” the judge said. “Why would the Bureau of Prisons ask for something like this ... unless there was a retaliatory purpose?"

In ruling, Hellerstein said he made the “finding that the purpose of transferring Mr. Cohen from furlough and home confinement to jail is retaliatory.” He added: “And it’s retaliatory for his desire to exercise his First Amendment rights to publish the book.”

HUGE: Supreme Court says eastern Oklahoma remains Native American territory

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the eastern half of Oklahoma can be considered Native American territory, a decision the state warned could create "civil, criminal and regulatory turmoil."

The 5-4 decision was written by Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch and joined by the court's four liberal justices. The justices considered the issue for the second time after failing to decide a different case last year, when Gorsuch was recused and the court likely deadlocked.

The case concerned an appeal from Jimcy McGirt, a Native American, who claimed his state rape conviction from 1997 should be overturned because Oklahoma lacked jurisdiction. Congress, his lawyer Ian Gershengorn said, never properly terminated the reservation.

The real reason I wanted to watch Trump's rally tonight

was to see if he would end up setting a forest fire with his ill-advised fireworks display.

Not that I would wish it, but it's a real concern amidst the drought and the ponderosa pines.
