The reversal of the bump stock ban is straight out of Project 2025 and their intention to weaken the FBI

To weaken and dismantle the FBI Project 2025 has a complete overhaul in place of which nullifying the ability of the ATF director to ban items effectively neuters that organization.

To quote from chapter 17 of the plan:

Align the FBI’s placement within the department and the federal
government with its law enforcement and national security
purposes. DOJ veterans often opine that the FBI views itself as an
independent agency—accountable to no one and on par with the Attorney
General in terms of stature—but the fact remains that “[t]he Federal
Bureau of Investigation is located in the Department of Justice.”31 It is
not independent from the department (just as Immigration and Customs
Enforcement is not independent from the Department of Homeland
Security) and does not deserve to be treated as if it were.
The next conservative Administration should direct the Attorney General
to remove the FBI from the Deputy Attorney General’s direct supervision
within the department’s organizational chart and instead place it under
the general supervision of the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal
Division and the supervision of the Assistant Attorney General for the
National Security Division, as applicable

On edit: It clipped the most important piece when I pasted it.

This can be accomplished through a simple internal departmental reorganization and does not need to
be approved by Congress.

The MAGA cult is already entrenched in the government. The convicted felon is only a part of the problem.

Thank you for reading my little rant.

Call it what it is, any rethug who shows up at the dumpster trial is guilty of 'Witness Intimidation'.

There is only one way to interpret this latest rethug tactic to influence the trial.

These m'fers are beyond hideous.

There is scum on my pond that has more moral clarity than the rethuglican party.

Our little turtle family sunning!

Wish the pic was better but these fellas are really skittish and I could only get so close when the fam started crawling up on the log...once they were all kind of settled and Jr. had nudged his way onto the log, I quickly snapped the pic.

Shortly thereafter, when I made a slight adjustment to see if I could get closer, they all slid off...

The Midnight Special - Pilot - August 19th, 1972

The Midnight Special debuts with an ulterior motive. Hosted by John Denver, with special guest appearance by Argent, Harry Chapin, David Clayton Thomas, Cass Elliot, The Everly Brothers, The Isley Brothers, Helen Reddy, Linda Ronstadt, and War.

...The pilot for the series aired on August 19, 1972. It was presented as a 90-minute special encouraging young people to vote in the upcoming Presidential election. Nielsen ratings for the premiere episode were a success, with 4.4%, or approximately 5 million television sets "tuned in", and 32% of those watching TV during that time period were watching The Midnight Special...

from Wikipedia

Burt Sugarman has been releasing episodes for the past year. I am hoping that he is able to release the whole catalog. I wait with baited breath for the next YouTube Live debut...

Donald Trump will NOT be elected President.

Americans are way to savvy.

Turdumpkin is broke and has 7 days to raise 500 million.
He just tapped on Manaforts shoulder...psst, hey buddy, can you talk to Vlad for me?

The World Watched and Went WTF?

Every time I see some one who supports the dumpster fire of a human being, I will let them know that the whole world knows that he will not be anywhere near the oval office again and he will end up in prison.

Then just smile and wave goodbye.

I am going to take my optimism and run with it. Good night to all here at DU, I love you all and there will be peace if we all just continue to love, live and carry on the good fight.

Now, I need to go get some wipes for my keyboard as I hate typing that name.

There were several things missing in President Biden's SOTU...

For instance, there was no;

Flop Sweat
Orange Tint
Slurred speech
Criminal Indictments

I could go on but, I am sure my friends here at DU can help me out….

That was the Strongest Cup of JOE, ever!!!
