Also from Ace, in red italic font, Biden Junta Considering Forcing Illegal Aliens to Remain in Texas, "Trump's policy: Remain in Mexico Biden's policy: Remain in Texas." I guess they don't expect to turn Texas blue this cycle. Paul Bedard at WaEx reports Fattened IRS not targeting high-income returns as Biden promised, surprise, surprise! Charles Rotter at WUWT delighted at how Manchin Unloads on Biden Admin for Restricting Alaskan Oil: Frankly Embarrassing’.

Never-Anybody-but-Trump sundance at CTH worries when South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem Will Possibly Endorse President Donald Trump Today During Event in Rapid City  "I don’t have the direct and data-driven answers,… YET….. but I will tell you with certainty, my gut instinct is that moving Kristi Noem into a position where she would be considered a VP pick for Trump in 2024, looks like an insurance policy against Trump winning 2024."

Dershowitz to Newsmax: Trump Georgia Trial Should Be Moved. If Carolyn Mosby's trial can be moved out of Baltimore I don't see why not. Capt. Ed, "This motion has a decent shot at success. The removal statute exists to prevent states from conducting lawfare against federal officials past or present, and that is clearly at least part of Fani Willis’ intent. However, the alleged criminal acts have to have a connection to official duties of the office involved. Typically federal judges will use wide latitude on that requirement, but would that apply to an election?"  CNN, Judge rejects Mark Meadows’ bid to move Georgia election interference case to federal court. Capt. Ed reacts "I’m a little surprised. Meadows had the best argument for removal, as his actions alleged in the indictment involved tasks that were clearly part of his federal employment as Trump’s chief of staff. Jeffrey Clarke also seemed well positioned for a removal claim. If Meadows’ application failed on the basis of the order highlighted by Blake, though, Trump’s clearly won’t succeed, at least not with this district court judge. We’ll see what happens on appeal, which is certain to follow." Althouse, "The special grand jury in Fulton County investigating the 2020 presidential election in Georgia recommended charges against Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and former GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler..." ""... according to the special counsel grand jury report released Friday," CNN reports."

Mike Gonzalez at WaEx is Connecting the dots between Fani Willis and unrepentant communists. Daughter of a Black Panther and friend of Angela Davis.

News from Lara Logan@laralogan, "For months we’ve been working on a series of stories about January 6th. I did not expect to meet so many extraordinary people in ordinary places who traveled all the way to Washington DC on January 6th, some of whom had never seen the capitol in their lives. You probably don’t know their names or their faces and that’s by design. I learned so many things I did not expect and I was reminded why I still fight to go beyond the headlines and false narratives and find the truth that lies in the rest of the story...the parts you weren’t told." Newt Gingrich at Am Spec worries about American Despotism "We are faced with a totalitarian cancer that will have to be confronted and defeated at every level."

Double Standard."  "Garland was quick to launch a national effort to investigate (largely conservative) parents attending school board meetings and protesting the decisions of (largely progressive) school board officials. Meanwhile, federal law enforcement officials launched no similar response when the (largely conservative) parents themselves were threatened by supporters and staff of the (largely progressive) school board officials."

From Zero Hedge, Biden Biography Bombshell: Hillary Violated Logan Act, Drew Rebuke From Ex-Crony. Well, the Logan act is never used, probably because it's a violation of the 1st Amendment anyway. 

From NRO, Biden Administration Likely Violated First Amendment with Social-Media Censorship, Appeals Court Rules. Pixy Misa at Ace's, "After a district court handed down an injunction in a First Amendment case basically forbidding the federal government from talking to social networks at all the government appealed to the Fifth Circuit. The Fifth Circuit just handed down a ruling narrowing the injunction to only forbid many parts of the government - particularly the White House and the FBI - from communicating with social networks in any way that implied or could be reasonably inferred to coerce infringement of protected speech. (Washington Post / MSN) The government is now appealing to the Supreme Court, saying that it can't function if constitutionally-protected rights are allowed to be protected by the Constitution." Stephen Kruiser at PJM, Team Biden Doubles Down on Its Soviet Censorship Freak Flag. Ace, Of. Course.: The BBC's "Disinformation" Reporter, Whose Rulings on What Is and Is Not a Lie Will Cause Social Media Comapnies to Censor and Suppress Speech, Lied on Her Professional Resume. "I mean -- look, all of these people were unemployed obsessives wasting their lives 24/7 on Twitter until three years ago. At that point, these unqualified nobodies began putting "Disinformation Expert" in their twitter bios and started getting hired by leftwing censorship groups for big salaries."
