Flotsam and Jetsam - Early Morning at the Wrack Line

Not a lot got past the Easter holiday. Maybe I can get through this before it's time to go.

Regarding Trump troubles, Dave Harsanyi at Creators, No One Is Above the Law? Give Me a Break. At Mediaite, Mary Trump And Jen Taub Suggest FBI Could Go After Trump For Attacking Judge and Hat Hair's Beege Wellborn snarks These people need more to do in their lives and less people paying attention to what they’re doing now. Kevin McCullough from Town Hall says Jail Him, Or They Lose. Please don't throw me it dat briar patch! From AZ Central. John Gabriel thinks the Hecklers at Trump's arraignment have a lesson for us all. "That’s right. Hundreds of Americans, in the middle of a workday, stood about 10 feet apart to yell at each other for a few hours. Don’t any of these people have jobs?"

Elections in America, Natalia Mittelstadt at JTN, reports on Ballot bounties? Wisconsin lawmaker flags payments used to mobilize voters for liberal judge "Community mobilizers" could make as much as $270 by creating a list of 75 people and making sustained efforts to turn out 60 of them to vote in the Wisconsin Supreme Court election." Hey, maybe I could make some fishing money that way in Fall. At Western Journal, Kari Lake's Election Challenge May Have Just Got a Major Boost from Biden DOJ's Conviction. This one is a little convoluted, basically arguing that the ballot printing fiasco in Arizona was a far greater election interference that the guy who memed text in your vote for Hillary. The problem, as I see it, is that no one has been identified at the perpetrators, and they still argue it was accidental. 

At the CT Insider, U.S. Sen. Blumenthal to undergo surgery after breaking leg at UConn victory parade. I wonder how soon he'll be back in the Senate. Before Fetterman?

Riley Gaines
'Bonchie' at Red State finds SFSU Releases Shocking Statement on Riley Gaines Assault, praising trannie hostage takers "Thank you to our students who participated peacefully in Thursday evening’s event. It took tremendous bravery to stand in a challenging space. I am proud of the moments where we listened and asked insightful questions. I am also proud of the moments when our students demonstrated the value of free speech and the right to protest peacefully. These issues do not go away, and these values are very much at our core." Nick Arama, also at Red State reports how Riley Gaines Rips Apart the Outrageous Statement From SFSU About Assault on HerRiley Gaines@Riley_Gaines_ "I'm sorry did this just say PEACEFUL.... I was assaulted. I was extorted and held for random. The protestors demanded I pay them if I wanted to make it home safely. I missed my flight home because I was barricaded in a classroom... We must have different definitions of peaceful."

At WSJ, A Biologist Explains Why Sex Is Binary "In an effort to confuse the issue, gender ideologues cite rare ambiguous ‘intersex’ cases." Leah Thomas is not intersex, he is a boy pretending to be a girl. At Da Wire, U.K.’s Largest Teacher’s Union Votes To Invite More Drag Queens To Schools.

From the Victory Girls, Woke or Broke Is Actually A Thing In Corporate America "So, if you’re wondering how seemingly overnight, your favorite product, big box store, or workplace has become woke…you know why. HRC and their CEI index. George Soros. The lawmakers with an agenda. And, the corporations/organizations who either honestly believe they are doing the right thing or don’t have the stones to stand up to the bigger bullies on the playground." Matt Walsh@MattWalshBlog "Here's what we should do: Pick a victim, gang up on it, and make an example of it. We can't boycott every woke company or even most of them. But we can pick one, it hardly matters which, and target it with a ruthless boycott campaign. Claim one scalp then move onto the next." I can't boycott Bud Light. I don't drink it. Sundance at CTH, Now, This Makes Sense – Marketing VP Alissa Heinerscheid Explains Why She Made Bud Light the Brand for Woke Transvestites
Against the backdrop of micro-brew beer being popular with young people, Ms. Heinerschied defined her brand of Bud Light as the “fraternity/out of touch humor” brand amid young people. She wanted to create a more “inclusive” image for beer; representation in the brand image became her cause celeb. Wokeism was the mechanics to deliver the brand change, so that’s what she did.

At her intentional direction, Bud Light is now the beer for Woke Transvestites. Ms Heinerscheid made Bud Light a beer of, by and for transvestites. Pick up that selected beverage, and the consumer identity is now defined. You are what you drink.
Althouse takes her ques from NYT on the Stanford judge kerfuffle, "Are 10 minutes of shouting out of an hour-and-a-half-long event too much? That is a matter of judgment and degree." 
Said Nadine Strossen, a former head of the American Civil Liberties Union, quoted in "At Stanford Law School, the Dean Takes a Stand for Free Speech. Will It Work? After a student protest, Jenny S. Martinez wrote a much-praised memo defending academic freedom. But that protest shows how complicated protecting free speech can be" (NYT).

An Instaessay from Insty at his NYPo perch, Politicians are tearing down the guardrails because they’re convinced they’re always right. Well, isn't everybody? I know I am.
