Just went over to the far right lunatic website Hide5

and they have not even posted anything about the conviction of Rhodes and Meggs on Seditious Conspiracy charges, I guess they are too embarrassed to discuss their "heroes" being convicted.

We'll see their bullshit 'explanations" of why they were convicted later.

IMHO, we've got the repukes and their MAGAt enablers on the run

and we should not let up, in fact, we should up our game and take it to their lying asses.

What say you, to steal a saying from a particularly odious repuke.

Let's take a break from all the strife here in the US and the world

and name your favorite rock guitar solos, it doesn't even have to be your favorite rock band.
Here are my 2 favorite:

Pink Floyd's On The Turning Away Live Pulse:

David Gilmour is amazing, listen to the end, it's worth it if your into Pink Floyd.

And then there's this:

Dire Straits Alchemy Live.

Mark Knopfler is beyond amazing with his guitar work, along with the drummer who doesn't miss a beat, and I love the energy from the whole band.

Thank you all for contributing to keeping democracy alive in America.

We did it, and I mean everyone in the US who voted to keep this great American experiment alive.

Good job everyone.

My late wife absolutely loved her and dragged me to every concert of hers that were in our area at the time, eventually, she grew on me and now I love to hear her sing, she has a mixture of country western, rhythm and blues and soft rock.
She is gorgeous.
Here's a live concert of hers.

Federal judge blocks Arizona law restricting filming of police

A federal judge blocked an Arizona law on Friday that was set to ban the recording of police within 8 feet of a “law enforcement activity.”

U.S. District Judge John Tuchi granted a preliminary injunction requested by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona and multiple media outlets, which argued that the law violates the First Amendment rights of journalists and the public.

The law, which Gov. Doug Ducey (R) signed into law in July and was set to go into effect later this month, prohibits people from recording law enforcement activity in the 8-foot radius if they know or reasonably should know the activity is occurring. They are also not allowed to record if an officer warns them that an activity is happening.

The law defines a law enforcement activity as the questioning of a “suspicious” person, arresting someone, issuing a summons, enforcing the law or handling an “emotionally disturbed or disorderly person” showing “abnormal” behavior.


This is good, because we all know that the police hate being filmed and this law is nothing more than police trying to criminalize recording of police while in their official capacity.

Deputy elections clerk in Colorado to testify against boss.

DENVER (AP) — A woman has struck a plea deal to testify against her boss, a Colorado clerk who became a hero to election conspiracy theorists after she was charged with breaking into her county’s voting system.

Belinda Knisley, who has long been on administrative leave from her role as chief deputy to Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters, appeared in district court in Grand Junction on Thursday and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of trespass, official misconduct and violation of duty. She was sentenced to two years of unsupervised probation.

“You engaged in concrete acts to undermine the integrity of our democratic process under the guise of protecting it. In doing so, you abdicated your role as a clerk, you violated your oath and you betrayed your duty,” Judge Matthew Barrett told Knisley during the hearing.

Peters and Knisley were being prosecuted on allegations they allowed a copy of a hard drive to be made during an update of election equipment in May 2021.


Oh Tina, you are so screwed.

The news just keeps on coming.

Feds charge members of 'B Squad' militia allegedly run by former GOP House candidate in Jan. 6 case

WASHINGTON — Federal authorities have charged five members of a militia allegedly run by a former candidate for Congress for their alleged actions on Jan. 6.

A criminal complaint only names one of the five individuals, Brian Preller, who, according to court records, was arrested in Vermont in connection with the case. Four of the individuals face a felony count of civil disorder, while one faces two misdemeanors.

The individuals all refer to themselves as members of the “B Squad" and were associated with the Three Percent movement, authorities said in the criminal complaint. They wore “Guardians of Freedom” logos on Jan. 6.

The leader of the group is referred to as “B Leader” in court filings, but he is not charged


More traitors going down, thank you AG Merrick Garland and all the dedicated employees of the DoJ and the FBI and all the internet sleuths out there identifying these POS's.

Exclusive: Justice Department issues new subpoena to National Archives for more January 6 documents

The Justice Department has issued a new grand jury subpoena to the National Archives for more documents as part of its investigation into the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol, two sources familiar with the investigation tell CNN.

This latest subpoena, issued on August 17, is in addition to a subpoena the Department of Justice sent to the Archives earlier this year, requesting the same documents and information that the Archives had previously handed over to the House select committee investigating January 6.

This new subpoena, which has not been previously reported, is understood to request additional documents and data from the Archives, pertaining to a period of time both before and after January 6.

Thomas Windom, an Assistant US Attorney, who is leading the criminal probe into the effort to impede the transfer of power after the 2020 election, including the potential role played by former President Donald Trump and allies to organize a group of fake electors who could keep Trump in power despite losing the election. The US Attorney’s Office declined to comment.


Hmmm, interesting development, seems AG Garland and the DoJ ARE doing their job.
