I am so goddam tired of the bullshit about Joe Biden’s age

Trump is almost the same age — 78 compared to Biden’s 80.  But let’s compare something else:  Physical fitness.

Biden did not answer any questions from reporters during the outing.

Not only is Trump Biden’s age, he is in horrible physical shape.  Trump claims to be 6’3″, 215 lbs — that’s the height and weight of a lot of NFL quarterbacks.  Does Trump look like an NFL quarterback to you?

During his presidency, Trump was rushed to Walter Reed Army Medical Center three times with mini strokes — how many had Biden had (HINT:  ZERO).  Ever see Trump on a bicycle?

Trump is old, fat, lazy, and stupid.  I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t drop dead before November 2024.  Joe Biden will bury him.

Remember the “christian” high school football coach whose pre-game prayers went to the Supreme Court? Turns out he’s a phony.

“Coach” Kennedy’s highly profitable con

Mark Joseph Stern has a great follow-up to the story of the “coach” who never actually wanted his job back in the first place and won his case by making up an alternate set of facts and having the Court’s neoconfederate supermajority wink at it. The culmination of this knowing, lawless circle jerk is nearly $2 million in taxpayer money being transferred to Paul Clement and his cronies:

Last year, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a high school football coach’s right to engage in “brief, quiet, personal” prayer—despite photographic evidence that his prayers were drawn-out, loud, and extremely public. At the time, the decision was embarrassing enough, as it rested on the fiction that the coach, Joe Kennedy, was reprimanded for “private religious expression” when he was actually establishing huge prayer circles in the middle of the field. Since then, the situation has only further exposed the shameful artifice of the ruling. At first, Kennedy appeared to have little interest in taking back his old job, which was supposedly what he was fighting for. Then he acknowledged that he had sold his house and moved across the country, with no plans to move back. Finally, on Friday, Kennedy returned to coach one football game. Then he quit, as the Seattle Times reported on Wednesday. He has no evident desire to exercise the rights that his lawyers fought for over years of litigation. Those lawyers, however, will walk away with $1.775 million in attorneys’ fees, paid out by the school district.

Ca-ching! Bremetronians are out a huge wad of cash although Kennedy did not have any actual rights violated (as the felt need of Kennedy and Gorsuch to just flagrantly lie about the facts of the case makes clear.) And if course one reason Kennedy did not want to leave Pensacola is that he’s making a killing on the wingnut welfare circuit.

The Court can’t say they didn’t know that Kennedy had moved across the country and had no intention returning to coach the team:


There was, all this time, another huge red flag in Kennedy v. Bremerton: Coach Kennedy said he wanted an injunction forcing the school district to rehire him—but he lived thousands of miles away. Bremerton School District is in Washington State, where Kennedy lived when the case commenced. As it dragged on, though, he sold his home in Washington and relocated to Florida with his wife. When the school district’s lawyers discovered this move, they advised the Supreme Court that the case had become moot, arguing that Kennedy clearly did not want his job back.

Kennedy’s lawyers filed an incensed response avowing that their client craved a return to Washington. “He remains ready, willing, and able to return to his job just as soon as his constitutional rights are vindicated. It is really that simple,” they wrote. “The relocation to Florida is not permanent, and Kennedy stands ready, willing, and able to move back to Bremerton as soon as humanly possible should he prevail in this litigation and be permitted to resume his coaching duties.” Indeed, they continued, he is “champing at the bit” to “resume the job he loves.” Attached was a declaration from Kennedy stating that, if he prevailed, he “would return home to Bremerton immediately.” He attested: “I am ready and willing to resume my coaching duties in Bremerton, WA. I can do so within 24 hours of reinstatement, if I am still temporarily residing in Florida.”

Shackleford and Clement’s response is must-reading for connoisseurs of dark comedy and utterly shameless dishonesty. They assert that of course Kennedy wants his job back and that the state’s motion is “frivolous,” all written in the imperious smarm that Sam Alito has perfected. To read that knowing that Kennedy flew into town, “coached” one game, crashed with a friend, and then headed right back to his permanent home in Florida is to know exactly what the conservative legal movement is.

And ADF has an extensive history of making up facts and have them be accepted by willfully credulous judges anyway:

ADF has a history of relying on shady or fictional clients as an excuse to get into court, as Supreme Court litigator Adam Unikowsky has documented. In 2019, ADF claimed to represent a calligraphy company that refused to make wedding invitations for same-sex couples (though it was never asked). The company emerged shortly before ADF filed a lawsuit on its behalf, and disappeared shortly after the Arizona Supreme Court ruled in its favor. Its website was then taken over by an Indonesian casino. ADF also represented a supposed videography company in Minnesota, Telescope Media Group, that did not want to film weddings for same-sex couples. (You guess it: None ever asked.) In 2019, an appeals court issued a preliminary injunction granting it the right to discriminate.

Rather than throw in the towel, Minnesota decided to pursue its hunch that Telescope Media Group was, essentially, not real. It sought discovery that would, among other things, reveal the company’s origins and ongoing business practices, if they existed. ADF abruptly moved to dismiss the case, stating (for the first time) that Telescope Media had pivoted away from wedding videos (it’s unclear if they ever even filmed one). Minnesota resisted, declaring its intent to test ADF’s “highly fanciful allegations” and prove that the group had taken “advantage of the judicial system” and now wished to “avoid the merits of this case.” ADF was so desperate to dodge discovery that it then moved to dismiss the case with prejudice, formally killing it—despite the fact that ADF had won once and was almost guaranteed to win again. Due to this desperate maneuver, the ADF lost out on hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorneys’ fees. This was done, seemingly, to avoid any more facts coming out about the true nature of its client’s business.

The lawyers and the judges involved share the blame for this looting of taxpayer money. And it shows that there is so little actual discrimination against America’s Christian majority that winning lawsuits requires it to be invented.

Meanwhile, in South Dakota

At the meeting of the South Dakota Republican Party, Gov. Kristi Noem introduced special guest, the twice-impeached, 4 times indicted, 91 times charged former failed real estate mogul Donald Trump, who spoke to an audience that about halfway filled the venue.

Trump spewed his usual bullshit.

But . . . here’s the important part:  Not one cable channel, including Fox,  aired Donald Trump’s 50%-full rally in South Dakota. It’s about time the media learns the twice-impeached, four-time indicted, proven rapist former president doesn’t deserve free airtime to spread lies.

Mike Lindell, the “My Pillow” guy, has his panties all in a twist

Source: Mediaite

Sep 8, 2023, 8:15 pm

My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell lashed out at the “rotten, horrible lawyers” and a federal judge during his deposition as part of a defamation lawsuit from former Dominion Voting Systems employee Eric Coomer over his claims that the 2020 election was rigged.

At the beginning of the deposition, after a lawyer told Lindell to speak slowly so the court reporter could take down his words, Lindell shot back, “Don’t sit and scold me already, mister. I’ll do whatever I have to do.” Throughout the rest of the deposition, Lindell hit the lawyers with insult after insult.

“You’re just a lawyer, you’re an ambulance-chasing lawyer, so don’t start with me. I got all day,” he protested. “I’ll take as much time as you want, so let’s go. You’re not my boss, you’re just a lawyer, frivolous lawyer.” After one of the lawyers asked Lindell, “Why did you call me an ambulance chaser?” the My Pillow CEO replied, “Because you are. This is a frivolous case and if you’re representing this guy and you’ve read this case, you are a disgusting lawyer, period.”

Lindell continued, “I can’t believe anybody would take this. This is absolutely disgusting, it’s a disgrace to our country, it’s a disgrace to you.” Upon being reminded that “there’s a federal judge that’s going to likely be reading and watching this deposition,” Lindell said, “I don’t care. She should have dismissed this a long time ago. She hasn’t ruled on that, there’s a problem. I got a problem with her too.”

Someone needs to remind Mikey of the meaning of F.A.F.O.

Giuliani “adviser” disappears — back to Russia? sleeping with the fishes?

Giuliani adviser, Katherine Friess, who knew everything, has disappeared off the map. She was involved in everything shady.  Is she a Russian asset who has been called back home, or has she been offed?


She’d previously worked for lobbyist Charlie Black, who worked with Paul Manafort and Roger Stone.

The first email Politico reviewed to Giuliani was Friess complaining about her restricted access to mail-in ballots being counted in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. She went so far as to sign a declaration about her entitlement to observe, but it never seemed to be included in any legal filing the reporters could locate.

“In the document, Friess said she was an approved Republican Party observer and spent two hours watching the process at a Pittsburgh canvassing center on the morning of Nov. 3, 2020,” the report said. She added that she didn’t have a good view of the counting and reviewing.

“I do not believe any of these ballots should be allowed to be part of the final vote tally,” she wrote.

Friess explained that she was a lawyer who ran a national security company. “Public filings indicate the firm, Seven Good Stones, is located in Colorado, which is also where Friess — in one of her only public actions in recent years — sued to block a Jan. 6 select committee subpoena for her phone records,” the report said. Both in Washington, D.C. and in Colorado, her law licenses are inactive.

On Dec. 17, 2020, as Trump’s efforts to stay in power suffered a series of court defeats, Friess circulated a draft message to the White House seeking security clearances for a group of people, including Giuliani and Kerik. The message, apparently aimed at the White House chief of staff, referred to an unidentified “project” and a classified “Directive.” …

Friess sent Kerik another email added Conan Hayes, a former professional surfer who worked with Trump’s post-election legal team. Hayes’ involvement has been widely reported but not fully understood; he has ties to Patrick Byrne, the former Overstock.com CEO.

It’s unclear if the cryptic request for security clearances was ever forwarded to the White House. Nor is it clear what “project” Friess was referring to or why Giuliani’s team felt they needed security clearances — which, if granted, would have given them access to classified materials.The discussion of security clearances came at the same time that other Trump allies, led by lawyer Sidney Powell, were urging Trump to issue an executive order that would have directed the military or federal agencies to seize voting machines.

She apparently got involved near the end with the extra-crazies Trump gathered when others backed off.

  • She should have been affluent enough to leave the country or hide.
  • Could have been a Russian agent who was withdrawn as the scheme to keep Trump in power came apart.
  • Suicide — lots of wilderness to disappear in in CO.
  • Or maybe she knew too much, was quietly talking with Jack Smith, and now she “sleeps with the fishes.”

“At least one third-party, Katherine Friess … has vanished,” Politico cited Freeman and Moss’ attorneys explaining last month. “Despite months of efforts, including extensive investigation and an order from this Court authorizing Plaintiffs to serve Katherine Friess by alternative service … Ms. Friess has never responded to Plaintiffs’ subpoenas nor provided documentary evidence, and Defendant Giuliani has declined to say where she might be.”
