The president also criticized congressional Republicans, saying they needed to “show a little spine” and take up a bipartisan border agreement in the Senate.
Trump’s press secretary sneered at the offer and sounded like a total snob in the process btw…
———
“Trump’s national press secretary hit back at Biden’s appeal.”
“Instead of shifting the blame on everyone but himself, Joe Biden should take responsibility for the border crisis, deaths, and destruction that his policies have caused, say Laken Riley’s name, and use his executive power to shut the border down today,” Karoline Leavitt said in a statement.

The average Joe with a brain should see that the GOP is part of the problem themselves.

What gets me is that the Senate border deal would be a massive gift to Republicans on their desired border policy (unless they changed it since I last read about it), including strict enforcement and crackdowns that set humanitarians’ teeth on edge, and its implementation would sheer off the Democratic Party’s left flank just in time for November.
But perhaps Brandon is playing some kind of 4D chess by getting the MAGAs to throw away something they claim to want when it’s literally handed to them?

I mean, the Repub’s would never pass it. They need the border to be a problem so they have something to complain about, if the problem was actually dealt with they couldn’t use it as a talking about. Heck, the GOP literally said they refused to pass it entirely because they think it would make Biden look good.

At this point, there’s no arguing or dealing with these, and whatever you say is going to be spun by propaganda outlets to generate more outrage so he might as well have fun with it.
Can’t punch those fascists in the face, but at least you can meme on them. Imagine a couple years from now, with the Republican party trying to rebuild after their Dear Leader lost the election and had a massive heart attack, being dunked on by the (Michelle) Obama admin for that drastic border bill that was dangled in front of their faces as a show of submission to the then indicted and imprisoned Russian assets which led to the implosion of their party, “Remember when these fucks were relevant?”.

In Vino Veritas
The judge in the Fani Willis disqualification trial seems to be leaning toward keeping her on, and maybe just referring her to disciplinary actions from the state Bar.
He questioned whether any lies or deceptions she made about her relationship really raised to the level of disqualification (saying instead they would normally be referred to the Bar), sparred with Trump’s attorney on whether monetary gifts amoung colleagues constituted enrichment, questioned whether gifts fulfilled the materiality aspect of disqualification, and questioned whether the divorce attorney’s text message of “absolutely” really could be considered an impeachment.
While he could still rule to disqualify her, even with all the above, it seems he is taking a lot of issues with the defenses argument.

She assigned an investigator she worked with before in the private sector.
Someone accused her of having been, and continuing to be, in a relationship with him.
So far the evidence just points to office gossip at best, petty office politics most likely.

It seems like both have already admitted to having a relationship. They are claiming the relationship started after the hiring, making it not a conflict of interest

Uvalde cops are the gift that keeps on giving, even years after the fact.
In Cross’ TikTok video, he shared footage from the meeting, which shows him questioning why Pargas had been absent from recent county commissioner’s meetings. When Judge William Mitchell warns Cross to watch his language, Cross yells, “Language, language, language. My child is fucking dead. Dead. And you have the balls and the gall to stand up here.”
Cross was then escorted out, arrested and charged with disrupting a meeting or procession, according to CBS affiliate KENS 5. Uvalde Police referred HuffPost to the Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office, which made the arrest. The sheriff’s office did not return a request for comment.
“That’s what they’re worried about,” Cross said on TikTok. “They’re more worried about me saying the word ‘fuck’ than they are that my son and others were murdered.” Cross’ 10-year-old son, 18 other children and two teachers were murdered in the shooting.

I mean, this is why things like AWS are so popular, right? Letting Big Tech handle your hosting is cheaper than doing it yourself. Economies of scale and all that. But when Big Tech won’t touch you with a ten foot pole… you make do.
And since Trump is siphoning all the money out of the right-wing-o-sphere, there’s less left for the honest extremists.

So a few days back, the Supreme Court shocked observers by effectively putting the most important of Donald Trump’s trials - regarding his attempt to overturn the 2020 election results - on indefinite hold with a series of delays, ostensibly to allow justices to consider some flimsy legal arguments from Trump’s legal team about presidential immunity to prosecution.
As Ian Millhiser wrote at the time, Trump’s goal - which SCOTUS seems to be helping with - is to delay the DC trial until after the 2024 election. If Trump wins, he can then order the Justice Department to drop the charges.
Millhiser followed up today with another piece suggesting that this sort of judicial acquiescence to popular authoritarianism has plenty of precedence in American history.
This is the tradition of Korematsu v. United States (1944), where the Court stood side by side with a popular, wartime president who ordered tens of thousands of Americans sent to internment camps for the sin of having the wrong ancestors. And of Debs v. United States (1919), where the Court condemned a prominent union leader and political candidate to 10 years in prison for giving a speech opposing the draft.
And it is the tradition of the Civil Rights Cases (1883), where the Court, at the very moment that white supremacists were consolidating an authoritarian regime that would rule the South for generations, declared that Congress had done too much to protect Black people and that they should no longer treat freedmen as “the special favorite of the laws.”
A written Constitution and the courts that are supposed to enforce it are weak guarantors of a liberal democratic society. The Supreme Court of the United States does not always align itself with authoritarian policies and movements, but it does so often enough that it cannot be counted on as an ally in a conflict between constitutional democracy and something more sinister.
