Flotsam and Jetsam - Today's The Day

So, the Democrat's are going to arrest Donald Trump today. NYPo reports Donald Trump arrives in NYC ahead of historic surrender to Manhattan prosecutors. Ace, Trump Travels to New York For Arraignment by the Soros Prosecutor; Plans to Deliver a Speech Tomorrow "He's scheduled to appear in the Soros Prosecutor's Star Chamber at 2:15."  At Da Mail, Trump's lawyers believe a Manhattan judge will impose a GAG order on Monday that will BAN him talking about his Tuesday arrest in NYC - with a penalty of 30 DAYS jail time or $1,000 fine  Via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.03.23, at Am Great Nice Deb reports Supporters Chant ‘We Love Trump’ as He Arrives in NYC Ahead of Arraignment. Sundance at CTH, New York City Mayor Eric Adams Warns Trump Supporters Not to Act Like Black Lives Matter Groups. PM, New York mayor demands Trump supporters 'control yourselves,' threatens to arrest 'rabble rousers,' accuses MTG of 'hate speech'—despite admitting there are NO 'specific threats' "And although we have no specific threats," Adams said. "People like Marjorie Taylor Gree, who is known to spread misinformation and hate speech, she stated she's coming to town."

YaHoo! claims an Exclusive: Trump to be charged Tuesday with 34 felony counts, but spared handcuffs and mug shot. Sarah Arnold at Town Hall notes CNN Panics That Trump's 'Mugshot' Would Make Him Even More Iconic and Popular. PM, Trump's team says no cameras in courtroom during arraignment, says Bragg wants a 'spectacle', 'we don't'. ""We don't normally allow cameras in courtrooms why make an exception now? To make a spectacle. They want that. We don’t." Capt. Ed at Hat Hair cites NYDN: Let's televise the Trump trial ... just like the OJ trial! because that worked so well. 

At NewsMax, Trump Insists Manhattan DA Has 'No Case' Against Him. Nick Arama at Red State thinks Those '34 Charges' Against Trump May Not Be What They Seem.  "So if you had a 34-page form with signatures or initials on each page, you could potentially make 34 charges out of it." ET claims to know Key Things to Know About Trump’s Indictment. As the Right Scoop reports,  Trump hires big time lawyer to deal with phony Manhattan case. "According to reports Trump has hired Todd Blanche, who was an Assistant US Attorney in Manhattan." Capt. Ed,  "Trump likely wants an aggressive approach right from the start, and a former AUSA with some pugnacity will fill that bill nicely. The best strategy would be to get this thrown out of court right off the bat, and hiring an experienced litigator — especially one that can drive home an argument that jurisdiction in these matters is federal — is a smart move in that direction." Forbes, Trump Adds White Collar Lawyer Todd Blanche To Defense Team As Tacopina Denies He’s Been ‘Sidelined’ NRO's Andy McCarthy, cited at Hat Hair, No, Cohen's guilty plea doesn't prove anything about Trump.  ADNAmerica focuses on Juan Merchan, the Colombian-American justice presiding over Trump's criminal case. "Merchan was born in Bogotá, Colombia and emigrated to the United States when he was 6." At the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.03.23, Fuzzy Slippers laughs when WaPo’s Glenn Kessler Posts Three Pinocchio ‘Fact Check’ On Bragg Being “Soros-backed,” Gets Schooled. Becca Downs at Town Hall says Trump Seems Pretty Certain on Who Leaked Unconfirmed Details of Indictment Against Him, Bragg. 

At Ace's THE MORNING RANT Buck Throckmorton, How to Respond to the Indictment of Donald Trump? By Arresting Alejandro Mayorkas
Donald Trump has been indicted for something old and trivial. Manhattan District Attorney Lavrentiy Alvin Bragg has acceded to the left’s demand that Trump be arrested for the unforgiveable act of winning the 2016 presidential election. Bragg was shown the man, and he obediently found “the crime.”

We can register our disgust about hypocrisy, or a two-tier justice system, or criminalizing politics, etc. Or we can respond in kind. The last option is the only one that will make this stop.

What high profile Democrat should a Republican District Attorney indict? How about Alejandro Mayorkas?

As Secretary of Homeland Security, Mayorkas has thrown our border open to narco-terrorists, human traffickers, and anyone else who wants to cross the border.

What crime should he be charged with? Mayorkas is an accessory to every crime committed by someone who crossed the border illegally during the Biden administration. He is an accessory to every death from fentanyl that was transported across the border. He is an accessory to sex trafficking. He is an accessory to child abandonment. I could go on.

Who can indict him? There are 254 counties in Texas alone, most of them deep red, and there are a couple thousand more deep red counties throughout the country. The District Attorney in any county touched by the Biden administration’s open border/catch-and-release policy could summon a grand jury and indict Mayorkas.

At WaEx, Trump special counsel to subpoena Secret Service agents. Off the Press claims (with a broken link) that Biden Justice Department Wants Charges Against Trump In Documents Case. At the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.03.23, Peter Van Buren at Am Con sees The Real Trump Development to Be Worried About "The Justice Department’s freewheeling approach to attorney-client privilege poses a threat to the rule of law." 

Nikki Fried Arrested
Town Hall's Matt Vespa looks at What Caused the Tennessee Legislature to Devolve Into Mayhem Last Night. Republicans booted 3 Democrats who participated in the Tennessee Capitol riot. Don't play with matches . . . At Twitchy, LOL: Democrats arresting Democrats – pro-abortion Nikki Fried stages a show arrest in Tallahassee, which has a Democrat mayor. "The Chair of the Democratic Party of Florida and the Democrat Senate Minority Leader, defying police orders and the will of the people of Florida, and getting themselves arrested ‘for democracy’ is just perfect. Seems a bit insurrection-y to us. Heh."

At WaEx, Salena Zito sees DeSantis wins over Pennsylvania grassroots activists and leaves no doubt he's running but Paul Bedard notes Liz Cheney 2024 chances jump after Trump indictment. "Support for Cheney, at 5% before the indictment news, has surged to 10%, putting the Trump foe and GOP face of the House Jan. 6 committee in a solid third place behind Trump and DeSantis, who has fallen from 32% to 22% in the latest Trafalgar Group survey of Republican voters." Ugh. 

Stacy McCain, Brain-Damaged John Fetterman Gets ‘Democrat Helper’ Served by CBS News "There is never any segment during the interview where Fetterman is shown speaking in a single shot for more than five or 10 seconds consecutively. And if you watch carefully, these interview excerpts constitute a fairly small share of the 10-minute piece, much of which is filled with Paulie narrating a tale of Fetterman’s “struggle,” intended to frame this as the saga of a hero courageously overcoming misfortune."

At the Peacock, Nashville school shooter planned the attack for months, according to journals police found. "The assailant was "planning over a period of months to commit mass murder at The Covenant School," police said." NYPo, Nashville shooter Audrey Hale fired 152 rounds, planned attack ‘over a period of months’: officials. The girl pretending to be a boy was a terrible shot.

Twitchy, Rural mom says you don’t hunt with an AR-15 because ‘it destroys the meat’. AR-15s are generally considered too light for hunting deer, even my .243 "Deer slayer," a much more powerful cartridge, is often frowned on in favor of 30.06s etc. An AR is too big for small game, rabbits squirrels and so on; as rural mom notes, it makes too much mess. They are, however, perfect for varmint and wild hog hunting. Like boats and golf clubs, different tools for different jobs. 

Stacy McCain has a #WaxMyBalls Update
When last we checked in on “Jessica,” he/“she” had been arrested in January 2020 on charges of assaulting a Canadian journalist outside a courthouse. In case you’d forgotten — who could ever forget? — Yaniv became notorious for going to salons and seeking genital waxing (depilation) on his/“her” genitalia, then filing complaints of discrimination when the requested treatment was denied, hence giving rise to the #waxmyballs hashtag in reference to the case.

The good news is, there will be no further such cases filed by Yaniv because he/“she” finally underwent “gender confirmation” surgery in January 2021. The bad news is, there were post-operative complications that led Yaniv to file a lawsuit against a Vancouver clinic, and also, whatever you do, DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK if you don’t want to know what botched sex-change surgery looks like. The folks at KiwiFarms employ the phrase “gaping axe wound” to describe the result of Yaniv’s surgery, and anyone willing to risk irreversible mental trauma can click the link to discover how accurate that phrase is. DON’T DO IT!

'Grid Girls'
I clicked, but I don't necessarily suggest you do. I'm a trained biologist, and it takes a lot to gross me out.  At Campus Reform, WATCH: Profs discuss spirituality of 'non-binary vaginas,' 'femme penises', and 'Black queer religions'. Some things are so stupid only an academic can believe them. At Not The Bee, The CMT Country Music Awards last night featured a drag queen performance. Yes, I am serious. Sister Toldja at Red State wants you to Watch: New Zealand PM Accidentally Demonstrates the Entire Problem With 'Trans Rights' Movement. PJM's Ben Bartee reports a Study Confirms Trans 'Social Contagion' Theory "Results of our study are generally consistent with other recent research about the current surge of gender dysphoria among youth with onset during adolescence or young adulthood. Natal females were affected more often than natal males… There was evidence of immersion both in social media and in peer groups with other transgender-identifying youths…. Youths with a history of mental health issues were especially likely to have taken steps to socially and medically transition… Parents tended to rate their children as worse off after transition." A Grid Girl complains leilani dowding 🌸🚜 ☮️@LeilaniDowding "So they replaced grid girls like me for a drag act..  What an absolute piss take.  I had some of the most fun times, and they took them away as it was “exploitation”.  WTF is this" On Coors Lite using Dylan Mulvaney as a spokeit, The Babylon Bee snarks, Beverage Pretending To Be Beer Features Man Pretending To Be Woman

Paula Bolyard at PJ Media says DOJ Finally Finds a Church Attack It Doesn't Like "On Saturday, March 25, 2023, the Community Church of Chesterland (“CCC”), located at 11984 Caves Road, Chesterland, Ohio, reported to Chester Township Police that the church had been damaged by what appeared to be Molotov cocktails during the night. During the same time, a sign on CCC’s property was damaged. CCC believes the acts were perpetrated in response to the church’s planned hosting of two drag show events on April 1, 2023. Open source searches revealed that individuals plan to be present and armed en masse at the events to protest. Representatives of CCC reported that they received hate mail and messages containing non-specific threats of protest and violence against the drag events. Images of the damage are shown below."

At Althouse. "Only now — as a student about to graduate — do I realize how few classmates agree with the loudest ones." ""Most of us fall somewhere between or are still forming our opinions. A friend recently told me that 'coming out as a moderate was more difficult than coming out as gay at Stanford Law School.' He eventually moved to San Francisco so he could 'just ignore the madness.' These dynamics are hardly unique to Stanford. My friends in law school at Yale and Harvard, among others, have shared similar experiences...." Insty comments, "It helps the bullies that the law school administration encourages and empowers them. Plus: “The quietness of people in the middle makes extremism work. They’re so busy being invisible that they don’t notice — or acknowledge — the role they play.”" JG Martin Institute sees Wage Discrimination at App State "In the name of “diversity,” the UNC-System institution may have violated federal law." Joel Kotkin at Quillette, on Race and State "The emerging racial state promises no real progress for most minorities while deepening ethnic divides and undermining the basis for democratic self-rule"At the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.03.23, Behind The Black sees Pushback: University will hire no one who supports “critical race theory”

Capt. Ed at Hat Hair, Did Twitter's algorithm have a back door for gov't censors? Plus: Shadow-ban code revealed? "Tey revealed his research on the mechanism for intervention, saying, “When needed, the government can intervene with the Twitter algorithm. In fact, @TwitterEng (Twitter Engineering) even has a class for it – ‘GovernmentRequested.’” Tey also provided a direct link to the code on GitHub for public review."

At Althouse, The feeling that the blue checks were honoring a reputation that had been curated for 10 years. "It's like the cry "I thought you loved me!" when a marriage comes to an end. No, this was not love. It was not honor. It was just the 2 of us, responding to incentives, in an awkward dance that was only ever commercial, and now, an exchange of money is needed, and you owe me."

At USA Today, Jonathon Turley complains ChatGPT falsely accused me of sexually harassing my students. Can we really trust AI? "What is most striking is that this false accusation was not just generated by AI but ostensibly based on a Washington Post article that never existed." ChatGPT lies because it was trained by liberals.
