    Why Alice Stewart's Death Hits DC Especially Hard

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/why-alice...ycsrp_catchall

    Still shocked by her untimely death. I actually liked her appearances on CNN. She was always very factual and non-combative. I just hope the conspiracy nuts don't target her passing the way they did with Seth Rich.

    FBI Raids Offices And Business Owned By Soros-Backed District Attorney

    Ryan Saavedra May 22, 2024



    Federal law enforcement officials raided a business in Mississippi on Wednesday owned by Hinds County District Attorney Jody Owens.

    FBI agents seized evidence at Downtown Cigar Company in Jackson, which is owned by Owens — who is backed by Democrat megadonor George Soros.

    WLBT reported that the FBI also raided Owens’ offices at the Hinds County Courthouse.


    “The FBI is executing federal search warrants at the multiple locations,” said FBI Public Information Officer Marshay Lawson in a statement. “The affidavit in support of the search warrants has been sealed by the court and so I am prohibited from commenting further. There is no threat to public safety.”

    Sealed by the court? No expert, but if memory serves that usually only happens when it is a) national security b) child welfare/trafficking c) part of a larger operation that they want to keep under wraps.

    Interested to see how that plays out.

    Radio news headline on the drive to work this morning was "Stage Collapses at Campaign Rally Killing Nine People, Injuring Over Sixty"

    I though HOLY FUCK!

    Turns out it was in Mexico and happened during high winds.*

    Imagine if it was a Trump event... how the Dems would absolutely jump on something like that with no end in sight.

    *Interesting note - they mentioned without detail that two dozen candidates for the deal down in Mexico have been killed!

    Here's the print version. https://www.reuters.com/world/americ...nd%20attendees.

    Definitely. I have a feeling she thought she was going to debate Zakk Wylde.

    Some of you guys have a really hard time, it seems, and everything has to fit neatly into this dynamic where critiques about things they like must be about something else entirely and couldnít possibly have merit. So you attack the person and not the ideas or arguments.

    There was a post about a debate over a populism and its effect on democracy, and the argument was it is democracy, not a threat to it. It was also framed from the perspective of right wing populism. And I pointed out that I believe authoritarian populism exists on both sides, but it is on the rise on the right, which I think there is a lot of evidence for. We have clear versions of it on the left, like Bernie Sanders, and the right, like Donald Trumpóneither of which are very friendly to individual freedoms. But itís the right version that is on the rise.

    I then said I donít need to preach to the choir about the Sanders version of it to people who already believe that about Sanders, but hereís evidence of the other side of it, and to show it I brought up someone on top of Trump who, regardless of what else is going on in Florida, keeps passing and trying to pass laws taking away choices people could otherwise make freely, and does it very loudly. This is not leaving people alone or pro-freedom, just right wing authoritarianism.

    Somebody else brought up California and I responded to that.

    Feel free to argue the examples I brought up are, in fact, pro-freedom. I donít believe they are. I didnít bring up Disney. Thatís a distraction.

    Florida can get some things right, and it does. But that doesnít mean they get everything right or arenít an example of what I argued. The problem with authoritarian populism is that when your side does it, itís popular, whether itís leftists who love Bernieís version or righties who love the Ronny and Donny version. Illiberalism is, thus, on the rise on both sides, and both sides love their version, which is, ultimately, a threat to Democracy.
