Irony is not dead in the "X" world

James Wood is not happy with Elmo's decision to eliminate the block button on "X" (twitter) and tweeted his opinion to Musk, who finally blocked James Wood. LOL


Reuters got a copy of Georgia charges against Trump that were inadvertantly posted

on the docket and quickly taken down again - 13 charges. I wonder if they will add another charge for tampering with a witness before tomorrow.


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie have decided to separate.

It is too bad actually, like them both. I wonder if Ivanka is planning a trip to Canada once she hears the news.

They have 3 children so I hope people respect their privacy.

Boris Johnson steps down as MP.

I may have missed this posted on here today, I was out for awhile and there was so much news when I got back, I have been slugging through it all. So sorry if this was posted and discussed already but I feel like the reckoning just keeps coming with Boris Johnson resigning today as MP. He is out, he is gone.


Developer at the centre of the Ken Paxton impeachment is arrested

This day just gets better and better.

Nate Paul, the Austin real estate developer central to allegations of illegal conduct by Ken Paxton, Texas’ now-suspended attorney general, was booked into the Travis County Jail on Thursday on a federal warrant.

Paul was booked into the jail at 4:25 p.m., said Kristen Dark, a spokesperson for the Travis County Sheriff’s Office. The arresting agency is the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

It’s not immediately clear whether his arrest is related to those allegations, but Paul is at the center of the abuse-of-office complaints against Paxton, a three-term Republican attorney general who was impeached by the Texas House last month. Paxton is currently suspended from his official duties and awaiting an impeachment trial in the Senate, which would require a two-thirds vote to permanently remove him from office.


CNN is doing a new town hall for Niki Haley.

I guess they thought there last one was such a success they will do another. I doubt they will get many viewers for this, might actually lose regular viewers, and they cannot afford to go much lower. This one will be moderated by Jake Tapper, oh yipee.


Is Putin preparing the Russian people for defeat in Ukraine??

There has apparently been a crisis manual document leaked in Russia, that prepares the Kremlin propagandists on how to deal with the fallout of the loss in Ukraine, in explaining it to the people. Not sure if this is a head fake or for real. It is being reported by different outlets, a couple of the articles are below:



Tucker Carlson drops a video after his firing.

Idiot - He is honest person saying truth and liars are trying to stop him.


Fox ex producer Abby Grossberg will be on Nicole Wallace show tomorrow

Nicole said it would be in her 5:00 ET hour tomorrow.

Edited to spell her name correctly.

Good news for Democrats, taking back school boards around the country

Dems are taking back school boards from Maga extremists around the country, reported in the Guardian:

Rightwing extremists defeated by Democrats in US school board elections
Republican-backed culture warrior candidates fare poorly in Illinois and Wisconsin, offering hope to the left

Scores of rightwing US extremists were defeated in school-board elections in April, in a victory for the left and what Democrats hope could be effective for running against Republicans in the year ahead.

In Illinois, Democrats said more than 70% of school-board candidates it had endorsed won their races, often defeating the kinds of anti-LGBTQ+ culture-warrior candidates who have taken control of school boards across the country.

Republican-backed candidates in Wisconsin also fared poorly. Moms for Liberty, a rightwing group linked to wealthy Republican donors which has been behind book-banning campaigns in the US, said only eight of its endorsed candidates won election to school boards, and other conservative groups also reported disappointing performances.
