I can't believe Trump's stalling tactic worked ffs. πŸ™„
Too much bias in the US. Need to be reforms to be more like the UK, where whilst not perfect, police officers can actually get sacked and prosecuted (think Wayne Couzons, David Carrick, etc) , and MPs can face the consequences of the law (think Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak getting fines for partygate, BBC reporting appointments, etc)

The generated AI pic of what a Trump arrest would look like is amazing.

I've been getting up to speed on the Trump rally myself this morning. Thanks for sharing this article from the BBC.

On Waco, Texas:

Ted Nugent lives in Waco.

Waco is well known for the Branch Davidian's/David Koresh siege that took place in 1993. It was a terrible tragedy.


An excellent mini series on the Waco siege:

From what I've read, the Trump campaign particularly picked Waco. This was the 30th anniversary of the Branch Davidian's siege in Waco (Axtell), Texas.

A more local op-ed on Trump's purpose for kicking off his campaign in Waco.

So, Trump picks this day of all days? Nothing screams "cult leader" louder than this. And look at what crazy he's aligning himself with.

That's what it looks like. What better way to gather all of the far-right out of control gun owners and underground militia's.

The Grand Jury has voted to indict Trump.


Donald Trump has been indicted by a Manhattan grand jury, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter – the first time in American history that a current or former president has faced criminal charges.

The indictment has been filed under seal and will be announced in the coming days. The charges are not publicly known at this time. Trump will likely be arraigned in court early next week, according to his defense attorney, Joe Tacopina.

Yay, you've made my day Tiffs! πŸ˜€ It's about time he was indicted. Can't wait for him to be brought down.

I'm gonna buy the extra large popcorn to watch this one (I'll try not to get it all over the floor, bless).

More info on this.

I reckon this indictment will embolden prosecutors in the other cases such as the insurrection to finally indict him. Imagine having to fight several massive cases at once! 😲 Better cop a plea deal, son.

Yeah, there is always the possibility that if all else fails, he may cop a plea, but I can't honestly see it happening. With his savvy lawyers he may just be able to plead for a lesser charge.

Why can't he just be stoned to death, like they did in years gone by....

Trump, 76, will be arraigned in Manhattan at 2.15pm on Tuesday on an array of business fraud charges relating to 2016 hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday.

Thanks for the update, Tiffany. Who says oldies' life lacks excitement. Just look at Mr Trump, who, at 76, would certainly prefer to play golf and tweet rather then be arraigned and prep-walked into a courthouse. With cameras flashing, recording his downfall and a crowd cheering anti-Trump slogans. How lovely is that.

Funny, the grand jury really pulled a fast one on him.....Trump got comfortable thinking he had a whole month since the grand jury was taking a break....but they didn't take a break on their decision to indict Trump. πŸ€”

I'm watching the spectacle on the news right now. If only I had some popcorn handy, so it's gonna have to be the virtual variety instead, sigh.
