Good news, indeed.

Perhaps now Trump supporters will finally focus on the men who planned and incited the J6 mob attack on Congress.

(And women, if we include Sidney Powell and Ginni Thomas.)

It will be interesting to track the coverage of Trump's indictment by Fox, Breitbart, and the right wing media.

My hunch is that they will focus on attacking and denigrating DA Alvin Bragg, in addition to what-about-ism (re Hunter Biden, Bill Clinton, etc.)

Agree, W., as we should. 

I find poetic justice that the Stormy Daniels case resulted in Trump's first indictment, issued just under the wire of Women's History Month. Now, Thomas, Powell, Conway, Ms Ivanka, et al. must take responsibility for not only their support of this supreme misogynist, but their own complicity in setting back decades of progress toward equal rights for women.

I've already received a what-about LBJ.

Doubt we'll hear a what-about JFK's sexual peccadilloes.

Is there a chance that this indictment will open the floodgates?

Excerpt, Coup in Dallas

Conclusions

During lengthy debates over the rise of the alternative right being led by Donald Trump, the possibility of authoritarianism similar to pre-World War II was a logical extension of our research into a similarly volatile period of the early 1960s. The question arose: why, unlike the 1960s when leading conservatives like William Buckley disavowed fringe elements—especially the John Birch movement—had leaders of the GOP in 2016-2018 failed to intercede before another, stronger fringe element could split the country, perhaps irrevocably this time?  

The question was perplexing to say the least. The possibility of extreme pressure on key players was an obvious answer, and that possibility led naturally to the question of the ultimate pressure, blackmail. In light of the many national scandals that dominated the nation’s news cycles during the campaign of 2016, in the context of political blackmail, one in particular warranted attention. A sensational child sex trafficking case had been exposed in Florida in 2005 with New York financial investor and sybarite, Jeffrey Epstein, at the center. Suspicion that the cameras and film equipment scattered throughout his various enclaves were focused as much on his high powered guests, including political leaders and influencers, as his underage victims, the possibility of tried and true blackmail could not be easily set aside. Had Epstein perfected the playbook developed over the decades by fascist regimes and employed by Americans like Kohlberg, Hoover, Cohn, Gray, and GOP consultant and “dirty trickster” Roger Stone? And if so, on whose behalf?  In future, researchers and reporters will discover, or disavow, this speculation in the months and years to come.

-Donald Trump -

"These Thugs and Radical Left Monsters have just INDICATED (sic) the 45th President of the United States of America, and the leading Republican Candidate, by far, for the 2024 Nomination for President,” Trump’s post said.

You're damn right you got "indicated". And all indications are that you're going to jail.

My friends and I agreed that it's a plate of spaghetti against the walls of Mar-a-Lago night tonight.

People at the Democratic Underground are asking, "Where were you when you first heard the historic news about Trump's indictment today?"

I was right here at the EF water cooler, and I learned the news from Douglas Caddy and Matt Allison.

I immediately hollered downstairs to my wife and she hollered back after a minute, "Are you sure?  I don't see anything at the Washington Post."

So I checked the NYT, and there was the glorious news in bold print--"TRUMP INDICTED."

After waiting for a new laptop charger for a couple of days I just saw this.  I didn't know Michael Cohen testified in the last month.  One of those NY deals, well Donald you let me go to jail . . .  As the article title says, he is number one isn't he.

Trump becomes 1st current or former president to be indicted (msn.com)

I love Lawrence O'Donnell.

In his show tonight, he said that 100 years from now, elementary school students all over the country will be learning about President Porn Star; except in Florida. Students in Florida will not be able to learn about President Porn Star, because it has the word porn in it.

:mellow:

"Control of our nation's fate has long been prised from our grasp," said the statement. "Let anyone who celebrates this downfall of our republic be forever branded a traitor to our nation. No one who mocks the people's will can claim the title of an American."

"President Trump embodies the American people — our psyche from id to super-ego — as does no other figure; his soul is totally bonded with our core values and emotions, and he is our total and indisputable champion," said the statement. "This tremendous connection threatens the established order."

All those in favor of President Porn Star say "Aye"
