Mike Johnson Tries To Walk Back His SCOTUS Remarks

Doesn’t matter, he made it known how he wants things to go.

Hmm. Both Washington (12 Electoral College votes) and Texas (40 EC votes) law prohibits anyone convicted of a felony from being a candidate or holding public office.

How many other states have similar laws?

It is a race to the bottom for the GOP.

Texas? We’ll see how long it takes them to make an exception. My over-under is 2 seconds.

Excerpts:

“The ‘Sentencing’ for not having done anything wrong will be, conveniently for the Fascists, 4 days before the Republican National Convention,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform on Sunday evening.

“A Radical Left Soros backed D.A., who ran on a platform of ‘I will get Trump,’ reporting to an ‘Acting’ Local Judge, appointed by the Democrats, who is HIGHLY CONFLICTED, will make a decision which will determine the future of our Nation?” he added. “The United States Supreme Court MUST DECIDE!”

If his appeal fails in New York state courts, Trump’s lawyers could appeal to the Supreme Court if they can convince at least four of its nine justices to hear the case. Trump would then have to show how the trial violated his federal constitutional rights.

His call for the high court to “decide” comes after House Speaker Mike Johnsonlast week claimed the Supreme Court “should step in.”

“This is totally unprecedented,” Johnson said of Trump’s conviction during a Friday appearance on Fox & Friends , adding that the verdict is “dangerous to our system.” “This is diminishing the American people’s faith in our system of justice itself,” he added.

Welcome to the Monday morning after. Late Thursday afternoon, 12 tried and true fellow citizens confirmed what we all knew here for years: that Donald Trump is, in Jeff Tiedrich’s incomparable two word distillation, a “felony factory.”
Now what to do.
Because of 7 corrupt judges, the country’s vindication on another, arguably more serious 54 felony counts, will not occur before the election. So we are left with one course of action. Devote every dollar and hour we can afford to re-elect Joe and Kamala, deliver Democratic majorities to the House and Senate, and elect as many Democratic candidates for state legislatures and other state and local offices as possible.
While preserving our Republic, its Constitution and our freedom and rights is more than sufficient reason to do this, the TPM community has the bonus incentive of doing this in memory of tena and mattinpa.
However slowly the arc of justice bends, we can make that bend inevitable.

The desperation of the cult is evident when they pursue a gun charge against a private citizen who is not actually accused of using that gun for an illegal purpose. Shows how badly they feel the need to minimize the criminality of their living gawd,

You’d think when a public figure does nothing but lie, that people would stop listening to or broadcasting them.

Mainstream media is a lie. There is only corporate controlled media, and it is beholden to the shareholder, a blind and needy sociopath in absentia.
