Flotsam and Jetsam - Taibbi Musk Divorce - Trans Mob Assaults Riley Gaines

Continuing on with saga of the Trump arrest, for which the next hearing is to be held in December! From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.07.23, Ilya Somin at Reason calls it A "Water Pistol Unnecessarily Preceding" a "Missile-Launching F-35 Attack": Thoughts on the New York Trump Indictment. Jonathan Turley, Plan B From Outer Manhattan: Why the Court Should Move the Trump Trial Out of Manhattan 

In this case, the court will likely deny the motion for a venue change, but it should grant it. It is hard to look at the totality of circumstances here and see anything but highly prejudicial media and political elements. No matter how you feel about Trump, you should have reservations about the fairness of a Manhattan trial.The problem is that, in an age of rage, reason is a stranger.

Breitbart has a Poll: Plurality of Americans Says Donald Trump Can’t ‘Get Fair Trial in New York’. Front Page has a Video FLASHBACK: Corrupt Soros-Backed Manhattan DA Says #1 Issue Is to Convict Trump. Show me the man . . . Matt Vespa at Town Hall asks Would It Shock You to Know the Charges Trump Faces Are Rarely Pursued by DAs?. Sundance at CTH is not the first to note how Awkward it is, Manhattan Judge in Trump Case Donated to Joe Biden and Democrat Causes to Remove Trump. At PJM, Matt Margolis hopes Alvin Bragg Might Be in Serious Trouble Following Trump Indictment, why? A New York jury wouldn't convict him. Madeline Leesman at Town Hall points out how Bragg Handed Career Criminal a ‘Sweetheart Deal’ Days Before Trump Arraignment. From the Other McCain, Stacy notes NY Prosecutor: ‘We Know Incarceration Doesn’t Really Solve Any Problems’.  CNS News looks at DA Bragg’s Website: ‘Our Office is a Safe Place for Undocumented Immigrants…’ Ace, FEC Commissioner to Soros Prosecutor Bragg: We Already Looked at Trump's Payment to Stormy Daniels. It Violated no Election Laws or Reporting Laws.

This is why Alvin Bragg refuses to say what crime he's claiming Trump conspired to "further:" He knows there is no crime at all. He thinks that the judge is so biased against Trump he'll let this case proceed without ever having to specify what law he's claiming Trump violated. And who knows -- he just might be right about that.

Obviously you can't defend yourself if the prosecutor won't even tell you what crime you're supposed to have committed. And that's the whole point.

And The Regime further proclaims its illegitimacy, and its intolerable tyranny.

From the Bookworm Room Bragg’s Lawfare Tears Apart A Thousand Years of Anglo-American Jurisprudence. And that's the point. 

The redoubtable Julie Kelly at Am Great sees The Gathering Storm "Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s flop was merely the unsatisfying appetizer for the feast on Donald Trump that is about to come." Dan Chaitin at Da Wire reports Fulton DA Responds To Trump Attacks "Willis, who is black, said the “comment does not concern me at all.” “It’s ridiculous in nature, but I support his right to be protected by the First Amendment and say what he likes,” she added."

IF TRUMP HADN’T STOLEN BIDEN’S BRAIN AND REPLACED IT WITH TAPIOCA, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE: Biden: Afghanistan Withdrawal Mess Was Totally Trump’s Fault. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.07.23, Weasel Zippers, Biden Admin Blames Trump For Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal, Kamala Harris Animatedly Delivers A Word Salad On America’s “Ambition And Aspiration”, and WH Spox Says Biden Is “Proud” Of The Failed Withdrawal From Afghanistan

Regarding her charges, Dave Strom at Hat Hair, Miami Herald isn't fit to be fish wrapper. Don Surber, DeSantis wants to bring back the 1950s? Cool. Capt. Ed at Hat Hair, Red-state Dems to clueless Newsom: Who invited you? "But, like a California cabernet left out on a humid afternoon, the Newsom brand may not travel all that well. Montgomery is a long way from Sacramento, and Newsom’s political machine has only been tested in friendly territory, where his party enjoys a supermajority. Many Democrats will be glad to spend his money, but it’s far less clear that they’ll want his advice or his obsessive focus on the culture-war contrasts between Democratic and Republican states."

The Free Bacon's Matthew Continetti wonders What's the Matter With Wisconsin? From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.07.23, The Geller Reports on  Election Bribery in Wisconsin: Far Left Organization Paid VOTERS UP TO $250 to Flip Wisconsin Supreme Court, The Federalist After Mail-In Midterm Mess, Gov.

At Summit, a Video: Legislator Switches To GOP, Says Democrats “Villainize Anyone Who Has Free Thought” “I will not be controlled by anyone.” From Town Hall, the great VDH worries about Our French Revolution. "We are in a Jacobin Revolution of the sort that in 1793-94 nearly destroyed France. And things are getting scary. The Democratic Party vanished sometime in 2020. Hard-left ideologues absorbed it. They were bent on radically altering, or hijacking, existing institutions to force radical, equality-of-result agendas that otherwise do not earn majority support."

A rift appears to have developed between Elon Musk and Twitter file lead reporter Matt Taibbi over Substack, which Taibbi uses for long form articles, and which Twitter appears to regard as a competitor. Forbes, cited by Hat Hair,  Taibbi leaves Twitter, Musk unfollows over Substack Notes rift. Capt. Ed, "Wow — that went south quickly. Apparently, the new Substack Notes feature is seen as a competing platform by Musk to Twitter. Or at least that’s the explanation, although I can’t figure out *why*. This is very short-sighted on Musk’s part, especially given Taibbi’s defense of him." Sundance worries the "Deep State" got to Elon, Elon Musk’s Twitter Platform Blocks Substack Content from Distribution, Matt Taibbi Departs Twitter Leaving Access to Investigative Files Behind.

Dave Strom is pissed George Floyd riots rewritten as "2020 fires,"  "Well my local NBC station has figured out how to describe the destruction during those times. And it isn’t riot. In fact, nobody did anything at all. What happened was an event that had nothing to do with human agency: it was “the fires.” They just sort of happened."

Da Wire, New Biden Education Rules Prohibit Blanket Bans On Males In Girls Sports. Althouse, "The proposed rule helps clarify that these blanket bans on transgender athletes are in violation of Title IX and is a really positive development." ""When it comes to the hard cases, this is saying that trans kids can be discriminated against." Said Scott Skinner-Thompson, a University of Colorado lawprof, quoted in "Biden administration says schools may bar trans athletes from competitive teams/Proposed regulation would disallow blanket bans on trans athletes on the books in 20 states." First Street, Once again, Joe Biden thinks that girls can be boys and boys can be girls. Tom Jackson at Hat Hair VIP, Florida will fight DOE's trans-athlete meddling 'tooth and nail.' From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.07.23, Shark Tank, DeSantis Hits Speed Bump In Transgender Medicaid Fight.  Breitbart, Supreme Court Will Not Block 12-Year-Old ‘Transgender Girl’ from Participating in Girls’ Sports in West Virginia.

I call this the “intersex trap,” and it's the tendency of a lot of arguments that gender activists are making to try to steer all these arguments about transgenderism into the weeds, into complex discussions about various intersex conditions.

Take males in female sports, for instance. You have someone like Lia Thomas, who's unambiguously male, is fully intact, is male in every sense of the word of what a male is. Now, you get a lot of people who would try to say that Lia Thomas should be able to compete as a female, and then they would point to other athletes like Caster Semenya, who has an intersex condition, and they'll point to all these other intersex conditions, these intersex athletes.

It's a red herring. They're trying to distract you away from making the easy calls on Lia Thomas, saying that Lia Thomas is unambiguously male, by just bringing up someone like Caster Semenya, getting you to mumble and stumble your way through making assessments on really complex case studies of intersex conditions.
