  1. To reduce the nasty, extreme partisan divide in this country, I suggest that Trump and Hunter be made cellmates. 

    (I know, one was convicted in state court, the other in federal. Please indulge my sense of humor.)

    1. What could Hunter have done to deserve that? He would have to listen to stuff like this actual transcript, and I believe he might wind up requesting solitary confinement fairly soon:

      “I say, ‘What would happen if the boat sank from its weight, and you’re in the boat, and you have this tremendously powerful battery, and the battery’s now underwater, and there’s a shark that’s approximately 10 yards over there?’

      “By the way, a lot of shark attacks lately, do you notice that? Lot of sharks. I watched some guys justifying it today: ‘Well they weren’t really that angry, they bit off the young lady’s leg because of the fact that they were not hungry but they misunderstood who she was.’ These people are crazy. He said, ‘There’s no problem with sharks, they just didn’t really understand a young woman swimming.’ No, really got decimated, and other people, too, a lot of shark attacks.

      “So I said, ‘There’s a shark 10 yards away from the boat, 10 yards, or here. Do I get electrocuted if the boat is sinking, water goes over the battery, the boat is sinking? Do I stay on top of the boat and get electrocuted, or do I jump over by the shark and not get electrocuted?’ Because I will tell you, he didn’t know the answer.

      “He said, ‘You know, nobody’s ever asked me that question.’ I said, ‘I think it’s a good question. I think there’s a lot of electric current coming through that water.’ But you know what I’d do if there was a shark or you get electrocuted? I’ll take electrocution every single time. I’m not getting near the shark. So we’re going to end that, we’re going to end it for boats, we’re going to end it for trucks.”

    2. They could be sent to the same facility.  I've had state DOC clients in federal custody (usually "protective" in theory) and vice-versa.

      1. Absolutely!  This has thrown the MAGA-verse into great confusion. 

        Hunter Biden Conviction Undercuts a Trump Narrative, and a Fund-Raising Pitch – The New York Times (nytimes.com)

        Even Trump calls it a "distraction" since it doesn't fit with the narrative that the system is rigged.

        And he does have a Second Amendment argument to raise on appeal which very well may find a receptive audience before as many as five of the current Supreme Court justices.

    1. Notably absent from the list of targeted counties is Mesa County.  That is an oversight and a mistake. Mesa commissioner Cody Davis is the quintessential grifter, widely seen as a wholly owned tool of local Big Money and real estate development interests

      His opponent is Tom Acker.  I know Tom well and have worked with him on issues regarding our other grifting institution, Colorado Mesa University. Tom is a fierce advocate for truth, fairness, and shared, democratic governance.

      This race can be won if the Democrats will fund Toms’ race. He is a retired CMU professor, widely known and highly respected. 

      Cody Davis seems to be enriching himself and his friends at the expense of local taxpayers. He does NOT deserve another term.
