  1. And now, a favorite quote from the opinion sanctioning the scumbucket "Kraken" lawyers who filed and pursued that frivolous election contest lawsuit in a Michigan-based federal court:

    Simply put, [United States v. Throckmorton] does not support Plaintiffs’ legal contentions directly or even by extension. Yet counsel’s citation to Throckmorton is enlightening in that it reflects, as the City puts it, “that this suit has been driven by partisan political posturing, entirely disconnected from the law” and “is the dangerous product of an online feedback loop, with these attorneys citing ‘legal precedent’ derived not from a serious analysis of case law, but from the rantings of conspiracy theorists sharing amateur analysis and legal fantasy in their social media echo chambers.”

    The shitbags in question get to pay all the attorney fees incurred by Detroit and the state of Michigan. The judge also order them to take remedial CLE and announced that she'll be reporting said shitbags to attorney disciplinary authorities in the jurisdictions where the shitbags are authorized to practice.

  2. #MarksMusings from Kit Carson County (pop. 7,447)  seems to be very selective in the summary of his historical account of how we got here.  His schtick plays well with a minority of Coloradans but it's almost like he's forgotten about the 600,000 dead Americans from a botched response to a global pandemic.  You don't have to imagine, Mark.  

    PS: more Americans will die in the next three days from COVID than died on 9/11. 

    Afghanistan debacle will haunt U.S.

    It’s hard to imagine a failure more completely self-inflicted than President Biden’s botched withdrawal of Americans from Afghanistan.

    1. News from Yahoo: two suicide bombings in Kabul kill American marines, Afghan civilians, and Taliban guards. ISIS considered to be the culprit.

      1. I read that earlier this morning.  It’s reportedly ISIS-K (the Afghan chapter of ISIS) who don’t think the Taliban are rigid enough on enforcing Sharia law.  How are we going to stop a bad guy with a suicide vest who thinks there are 70-some virgins awaiting him in heaven? 

        The most recent number is 12 US dead, 120 Afghans.

        1. I read somewhere years ago about a British tactic when they were confronted with a terrorist uprising during the Palestine Mandate between the two world wars. They put out a notice that any terrorist killed would be buried in a shroud made of pig skin, meaning they don’t go to paradise to meet Allah and all those human virgin females. That largely ended the attacks.

        2. On a happier note, in addition to still being in Haiti feeding the people wiped out by the hurricane, World Central Kitchen has set up and is feeding refugees at Dulles as they wait to discover where they will start their new lives.https://wck.org/news

  3. An interesting take on the current state of the Republicans, found in The Atlantic article by Peter Wehner:

    In today’s Republican Party, however, Trump is becoming what was once unthinkable—conventional, unexceptional, even something of an establishment figure.

    In a right-wing movement that is home to a growing assortment of cranks and kooks—Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar and Lauren Boebert, Mo Brooks and Madison Cawthorn, Ron Johnson and Marsha Blackburn, Mike Lindell and Michael Flynn, Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, Cyber Ninjas and QAnon, anti-vaxxers and insurrectionists—Trump looks rather ordinary.

    I wonder if Boebert wants to be showing up Trump as "ordinary."
