Flotsam and Jetsam - 4 Proud Boys Convicted of Seditious Conspiracy

Well, I suppose we should dispose of the Tucker tucker first, I think this controversy has about run its course for a while.

The Biden Bribery Scandal is slowly getting going, with massive resistance from the media and the Biden administration.

Jerry Dunleavy at WaEx, Hunter Biden laptop letter recruitment email wanted to give Joe Biden a debate ‘talking point’ and  Hunter Biden investigation: Weaponization committee targets John Brennan and James Clapper for laptop testimony. John Solomon at JTN, slams a 'Premeditated and admitted lie': Intel pros slam Biden laptop letter after bombshell revelation.

At Breitbart, Exclusive — Kash Patel Suing Defense Department for ‘Obstructing’ Release of His Book that Exposes Deep State

Matt Vespa at Town Hall is amused that Anxious is anxious that Joe Biden Is Old, Slow, and Has Diminished Energy.

From Da Caller, ‘You Don’t Know, Do You?’: Biden Official Speechless After John Kennedy Grills Him On Simple Question “If you could answer my question: if we spend $50 trillion to become carbon neutral in the United States of America by 2050, you’re the deputy secretary of energy, give me your estimate of how much that is going to reduce world temperature.” Which is why Dave Strom at Hat Hair says BOOM! John Kennedy is the Senator most fun to watch. Of course he doesn't know, because scientists don't know, and even if you believe their models, it's insignificant. PJM's Rick Moran, Not a Conspiracy Theory: Yes, the Government Will Be Coming for Your Gas Stove.

The Divine Ms. Devine at NYPo joins the crowd promoting Vivek Ramaswamy’s vision for America first — even more than Trump.

Elections Daily (cited at Hat Hair) thinks the Justice entry makes WV Senate race "safe Republican". Capt. Ed, "That likely would have been the case anyway, but the Justice/Babydog ticket makes it obvious." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.04.23 (Morning Edition), The Federalist: From Sketchy Balloting To Shady Funding, New Montana Laws Say No To Rigged Elections and Lawsuit Shows Government’s Hands All Over The Election Integrity Partnership’s Censorship Campaign and from the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.04.23 (Evening Edition)  The Federalist, Gov.

Capt. Ed, While we're talking SCOTUS ethics ... what about Sotomayor's?  At WaEx, Democrats slammed for 'threatening' Supreme Court's security in exchange for ethics code. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.04.23 (Morning Edition), Twitchy: Did Democrats Threaten To Cut Funding For SCOTUS Security? and Hogewash, Nice Court You Have There.

In Jan. 6 news, to absolutely nobodies surprise given the Washington DC jury pool, the DOJ obtained a variety of convictions, including seditious conspiracy against 4 Proud Boys facing charges from the Capital incursion, including their nominal leader Enrique Tarrio, who wasn't even in Washington DC on the day. At JTN from Madeleine Hubbard, Proud Boys leader Tarrio, three others in group found guilty of seditious conspiracy for Jan. 6. Becker News, Four J6 Defendants Convicted of ‘Seditious Conspiracy’ to Keep Trump in Power After 2020 Election. Ace, Proud Boys Convicted of "Seditious Conspiracy" By Trump-Hanging Jury 
As Julie Kelly wrote recently, this is just a set-up to prosecute the man they really want to imprison, Trump. If the Proud Boys are guilty of "seditious conspiracy," then anyone who conspired with them is equally guilty. Conspiracy only requires an agreement that some member of the conspiracy commit a crime, not that any part of the conspiracy commit the crime himself.

It doesn't even require that a crime be committed -- conspiracy is the agreement that some member of the conspiracy should commit the crime. Even if the crime is never committed, the conspiracy to commit that crime is still a crime.

They will attempt to claim that Trump's statement to the Proud Boys, "Stand back and stand by," was an acknowledgement of the conspiracy and further orders given to the conspirators.

Althouse, reads Eugene Robinson at WaPoo, "[T]hree different sets of jurors have concluded that Jan. 6 was no spontaneous riot. It was planned, organized, incited..." "I still have the question: What evidence proved that this was "sedition"? I'm trying to understand how political protests come to be understood as "sedition."" And what of Ray Epps, the alleged Proud Boy who clearly incited the riot? Nada. . . Sundance, Merrick Garland Delivers Speech Following Conviction of Four J6 Defendants for “Sedition” – Seditious Conspiracy and How Corrupt Is Our Current Situation? It’s Worse Than Most Can Fathom… "The football spiking by AG Merrick Garland today deserves some context, and I am going to take you through a story that will highlight just how bad the situation really is."

'Bonchie' at Red State, Sit-in at DeSantis Office Results in Arrests and One Legendary Photo. At PM, BREAKING Biological male ‘daughter’ of Democrat House Minority Whip Katherine M. Clark gets no jail time for assaulting Boston cop during Antifa event, must write 'apology letter' "Dowell has been ordered to write an apology letter to the officer and complete 30 hours of community service." At least she should have had to pick up the garbage.

It's barely warm enough to riot again, and they haven't quite settled on the excuse for this summer's extravaganza. Dana Loesch, It's Almost Riot Season: The Left's New Cause Célèbre "You can be sad that Jordan Neely died the way he did without ignoring the fact that he also represented a credible threat to public safety." At PM. BREAKING: Medical examiner rules repeat violent offender Jordan Neely's death a 'homicide' as NYC braces for riots "The city saw protests and anger from residents on Tuesday after the news of Neely's death was made public." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.04.23 (Evening Edition),  Twitchy, NYC’s Mayor Adams Hits Back At Occasional Cortex Over Death Of Subway Crazy, and Heretic Minister Proclaims “Jesus Was A 30-Year-Old Black Man On The , and atr Da Fed  Thanks To The Brave Men Who Saved New York Subway Riders From Jordan Neely.

Stacey McCain, BREAKING: Soros-Funded Kim Gardner Will Resign as St. Louis Prosecutor "Good-bye, and good-riddance." Hat Hair's John Sexton, Kim Gardner's office has barely any staff but she's busy...getting a nursing degree? (Update: Gardner resigns!) Ace, with the Flaming Skull, Soros Prosecutor Kim Gardner is Going to Trial for Neglect of Office Charges. Whoops, No She's Not: SOROS PROSECUTOR KIM GARDNER RESIGNS!!!. Can't they charge her even after she resigns? "People keep asking if she'll face charges after she is out of office. These charges are not criminal in nature. They're civil charges brought against a public official in order to secure her ouster. A victory at trial results in her being removed from office, not put in jail."

At TNP, Trump Accuser E. Jean Carroll Keeps Calling Rape ‘Sexy’, As Social Media Notices Her Story Matches a 2012 Law & Order Episode. Well, there are only so many plots. At Da Wire, New York Court Tosses Trump Suit Against NYT, Niece Over Leaked Tax Records. "New York Supreme Court Justice Robert Reed ordered the former president to pay all legal expenses, attorney fees, and other costs in a Wednesday filing. The judge said Trump’s claims against the paper “fail as a matter of constitutional law” and said the Times’ reporting was “protected First Amendment activity,” according to The Daily Beast." At WaEx, Trump wants to move Bragg hush money case from state to federal court: probably because the Fed have already declined to prosecute the underlying "offense."

At Red State, NPR Claims Elon Musk Blocked Its Content, Then the Comedy Ensued. To be fair, NPR is a joke. On the Summit, NPR Says That Elon Musk Has “Threatened” To Give Away @NPR Handle To “National Pumpkin Radio” "Reporter doesn’t seem to realise he’s been trolled by Musk." At Da Fed, Margot Cleveland reports Lawsuit Shows Government’s Hands All Over The Election Integrity Partnership’s Censorship Campaign, "While private platforms did the censoring, the complaint establishes it was the government that initiated and pushed for that censorship."  Twitchy, CBC #TwitterFiles? The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation tried to get Twitter to censor critics (video). Da Caller reports TikTok Suspends Account Of US Think Tank Promoting Anti-CCP Documentary. Surprised? Hat Hair's Jazz Shaw wonders, Can Congress really ban social media for children? Well, they can pass a law, but I question the enforcement mechanism. Also, God help us. Veep to tackle AI challenge. Artificial Intelligence meets natural stupidity. 

Gonna pass on the culture war today, and maybe have a double dose tomorrow.
