Flotsam and Jetsam - Trump Bond Reduced to a Mere $175 Million

Stacy McCain, The Leticia James Fraud. As I intimated on Sunday, it's now out in the open, Spencer Brown at TownHall reports Judge Hands Trump Partial Victory in Civil Fraud Case. "In a somewhat surprising ruling, the judge slashed the bond amount to a still-staggering $175 million and extended the deadline for Trump to come up with the money and post the bond by ten days." Althouse,  "A state appeals court ruled that Donald Trump and his co-defendants in the New York civil fraud case have 10 days to post a $175 million bond..." Ace, NY Court of Appeals Lowers Amout of Bond Trump Must Post to Appeal from $454 Million to $175 Million. "Trump had moved for the court to accept a $100 million bond, which he said he could afford. Of course the court could not do what Trump asked; they have to punish him and treat him like a rapist."   From Breitbart, Donald Trump: ‘It Will Be My Honor to Post’ $175M Bond and Media: Trump Wins ‘Crucial,’ ‘Unexpected’ Victory in Bond Ruling. Sarah Arnold at TownHall, CNN Panelist Warns What Will Happen If Letitia James Seizes Trump's Assets, and It's Not Good for Dems. "Frank Luntz suggested that Trump’s chances of being elected in the 2024 presidential election will grow immensely over James’ politically motivated case taking extreme measures."  Nicole Silvero at Da Caller, Turley Says Judge’s Ruling In Trump Civil Fraud Case Is ‘Absurd,’ ‘Quite Grotesque’

JTN staff report Fulton County DA says ‘train is coming’ for Trump, his co-defendants, but obstacles remain. "And though he allowed Willis to stay on the case, Judge McAfee did say there were “reasonable questions” about both Willis's and Wade's truthfulness when they testified at the hearings." PM, DA Fani Willis defends herself, says she is ‘not embarrassed’ about relationship scandal with Nathan Wade, "I don't feel like my reputation needs to be reclaimed," Willis said. "Let's say it for the record, I'm not embarrassed by anything that I've done." Fox 5 Atlanta, Fulton County DA Fani Willis claims she's only DA with 'courage' to prosecute Trump

At LI Mary Chastain reports a New York Judge Sets Trump’s ‘Hush Money’ Trial to Start on April 15, "The judge also gave Trump’s team a chance “to file a motion seeking to delay the trial based on pre-trial publicity concerns.”" and Herr Professor Jacobson opines “what’s going on in New York State with the weaponization of prosecutors’ offices both criminally and civilly is really troubling”. "My appearance on The Legal Lowdown with with Imran H. Ansari, Esq.: “That’s the disparity between the Democrats and the Republicans when it comes to abuse of the law. It does set a really bad precedent, but it’s not a precedent that Democrats in New York State are the least bit worried about” because it won’t happen to them." Grayson Bakich at PJM notes Nancy Pelosi's Son Gets Off Scot-Free (Again) for Money and Mail Fraud. "Also, did you know this is the SEVENTH time Paul Pelosi Jr. has been tied to federal crimes?" Tristan Justice at Da Fed, Democrats’ Campaign Strategy Of Anti-Trump Lawfare Makes A Mockery Of The Justice System.

From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.25.24, Twitchy, 'Embellishment' Alert: Free Beacon Catches Biden in ANOTHER Big Lie. Ace, You Know That Bizarre Story Biden Told the Special Counsel About a Worker Getting His Penis Burned Off? Yeah, Biden Lied About It. "It wasn't just a random story told by a confused old man. It was that, too, but it wasn't just that. It was yet another confabulation by a confused old man to brag about himself. He told the story to indicate that when he was a young (incompetent) lawyer, he fought for the rights of this abused worker. It's a hero origin story. Trouble is, there's only been one case like that ever reported in legal reporters -- those thick books you see behind lawyers in ambulance-chaser reporters -- and when that case was settled, Biden was still in law school. It's yet another case of Biden hearing about something and just incorporating it into his ever-expanding self-mythology."

Stacy McCain, Election Fraud Never Happens. Election Fraud Never Happens. Election Fraud Never … Oh, Wait — Chicago? 

You’ll be denounced as an “election denier” if you dare suggest that Democrats are able to manufacture phony votes in order to “win” elections, but exactly what the hell is going on in Chicago?
The Chicago Board of Elections revealed on Saturday that more than 10,000 ballots hadn’t been included in previous vote totals by mistake, making unofficial counts lower than expected. In a news release, a spokesperson for the CBOE explained that while adding up vote-by-mail ballots, he accidentally left out additional ballots that had been delivered by the U.S. Postal Service on Monday.

Insty cites JEFFREY CARTER: Stealing It: Chicago Shows How It Is Done. “Only about 20% of eligible voters voted, and it’s taking them at least six days past the election to count all the votes. Every single one of these people is responsible for making fraud easier. But, the State’s Attorney’s race was closer. Lo and behold after all the ballots were practically counted they ‘found’ another mail-in ballot dropbox full of 10,000 ballots that were not postmarked or dated. They are counting them now.” Bob Zimmerman at Behind the Black starts a new list: Part 1: The expected upcoming election chaos caused by the left’s hatred of any opposition.

At ET, Steve Baker, on the Jan. 6 Front Lines and in the DOJ’s Crosshairs "Steve Baker, who captured dramatic video on Jan. 6, is charged with four federal misdemeanors. Just who qualifies as a journalist on Jan. 6—and who decides?" Conservatives need not apply. 

Ace, No Way (x2): Harvard Study Determines That "Disinformation Experts" Are Overwhelmingly Leftists "Because this has been a leftwing information operation all along." At Hat Hair, Dave Strom dissects a Harvard Study: Misinformation 'Experts' a Bunch of Leftists, Larry, Do the Media Realize They're Losing?, KT, Chuck Todd's Hypocrisy Is Showing at NBC, and Jazz Shaw, Google Has Been Ratting Out YouTube Viewers to the Feds. John Solomon at JTN reports Congress is probing whether IRS using AI to invade Americans’ financial privacy. "As new inquiry opened, Rep. Hageman says too many Feds “do not recognize our constitutional protections.” Jazz Shaw again, Google Has Been Ratting Out YouTube Viewers to the Feds. At Althouse, "Here, Rogan plays for Haidt what turns out to be an edited clip of [T]rump’s 'bloodbath' comment."  "In this edited clip, it sounds bad. Haidt comes to a conclusion based on this erroneous piece of evidence. Having formed that initial reaction, despite the fact that they realize it was an edited clip and not the original statement, it is virtually impossible for Haidt backtrack on that original impression. This is exactly how fake news works."

Across the pond at Da Telegraph, Sex reassignment in minors may be medical history’s ‘greatest ethical scandal’, French report says. At Da Wire, Wyoming Bans Gender Surgeries, Puberty Blockers For Children. Jazz Shaw Wyoming: No Trans Procedures for Kids. From NYPo, Nassau County executive Bruce Blakeman swamped with support for trans athlete ban. John Sexton, Elite Women in British Sports Are Uncomfortable Competing with Trans Women But Fear Saying So. Capt. Ed at Hat Hair finds something odd in the Start Trib, Free the Nipple Comes to Minnesota. Guess Why. ""If law enforcement believes that someone identifies as a female, then they're going to treat them differently if they have their shirt off than they would someone that they perceive to be a male," Sencer-Mura said. "As we have a shifting understanding of gender, that law just doesn't make sense anymore." A lot of things don't make much sense anymore.  Ben Whedon at JTN reports a Provision in $1.2 trillion 'minibus' would effectively bar pride flags from flying at U.S. embassies "The legislation faces a Friday evening deadline to avert a partial government shutdown." Althouse cites "My version of feminist, queer, trans-affirmative politics is not about policing. I don’t think we should become the police. I’m afraid of the police."

Insty cites BRYAN CAPLAN: With so many foreigners wanting to come to America, why would an American ever marry an American? He has answers. Plus this: “When I ask, ‘Why do Americans ever marry Americans?,’ I suspect that many non-economists will object, ‘What if everyone thought that way?’ An intriguing hypothetical. If 50% of Americans started marrying foreigners, I suspect that nationalists would soon tighten restrictions on marriage visas. If 90% of the 50% of Americans marrying foreigners were male, I suspect that domestic feminists would join forces with nationalists to ‘ensure fairness to women.'” From the College Fix, University’s ‘Ejaculate Responsibly’ campaign blames men for unwanted pregnancies "To avoid the pitfalls of pregnancy, the campaign recommends alternate methods of “sexual pleasure” such as masturbation, sex toys, and/or “only having sex with people who are unable to cause pregnancy” (aka another woman)."

Ace, No Way: Complaint Alleges that UWisconsin's "DEI Czar" Is Guilty of Decades of Research Misconduct "Huh, I'm starting to think that DEI is just a grift for people who were kicked out of Rainbow PUSH for ethical violations. The research misconduct alleged is self-plagiarism for a change. Now, you may say, "You can't plagiarize yourself," and then you might repeat, with no fear of ethical rebuke, "You can't plagiarize yourself." Which is true. But he keeps presenting the same research as "new research." Apparently he's Regifted the same freaking "research" five times, counting each regurgitation as a new, separate academic achievement. Oh and he also strangled a cop in 2011." Really, nobody is paying any attention to what they write, because it's all nonsense anyway.
