It seems there is a second Steele Dossier which suggests Russian intelligence has a sex tape featuring Donald Trump. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IY4zmdiZvVE

Please explain to the Democrats and RINOs that the reason Texas-06 completely shut out Democrats in Saturday’s Jungle Primary is because of my Endorsement of Susan Wright, who surged last week after receiving it. The Democrats were shut out and now it will be a contest between two Republicans, a very big win.

How far behind the other Republican was Wright? Will she crash and burn amusingly?

James O'Keefe has reacted the perma-banning of himself and Project Veritas by launching PV Legal, to assist people who have been "defamed" on social media. He chose to announce this by releasing a music video:

I'm so, so sorry.

SinnerBoy - 04 May 2021 23:34:57 (#86 of 1856)

I don't think that he knows what veritas means.

For the tech-minded among us, a Zoom call between Mike "MyPillow" Lindell and the IT team behind his Twitter-challenger website has been leaked:

Much mirth is to be found in the comments.

Some good news for news junkies - and for one of the heroes of the White House Press Corps during the Trump years.

I don't know, there's a part of me that pities the guy. He's clearly unwell.

Pixiedust - 04 May 2021 23:56:16 (#90 of 1856)

He has enough money to seek treatment, if he so wanted. Plenty of people with mental health and/or addiction problems struggle alone without any support whatsoever and still don't support attempts to overturn an election.

Fuck him and his "religion is my new crack" philosophy.

Garden - 05 May 2021 00:15:00 (#91 of 1856)

All good points. But he clearly has some professional sociopaths taking advantage of him.

davedanon - 05 May 2021 00:48:26 (#92 of 1856)

I'm with Pixie.

Fuck him.

Ted Cruz @tedcruz Had a great dinner tonight with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago. He’s in great spirits! We spent the evening talking about working together to re-take the House & Senate in 2022. https://twitter.com/tedcruz/status/138975933147065

Good plan Ted. Talk to the idiot who lost them all. Your wife’s ugly btw.

Garden - 05 May 2021 05:46:09 (#95 of 1856)

For some reason, all the news (well, tweets really) about things like Ted Cruz kissing Trump's ass at Mar-a-Lago and Kevin McCarthy badmouthing Liz Cheney and a couple of other stories have me feeling the worst I've felt since Trump lost.

Finally picked up Andrew Weissman's book, Where the law ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation from the library today.

Will reading it make me feel better?

BBC News - Trump launches new 'communications' platformhttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-56989500

Moschops - 05 May 2021 08:12:58 (#98 of 1856)

A blog isn't it?

Crayola - 05 May 2021 08:56:50 (#99 of 1856)

It's not even really a blog as you can't comment. Just a first person narrative web page.

The problem with Trump getting anything with an interactive element is that it would almost instantly get shouted down or even shut down by anti trump sentiment or tech. Without a strong platform from a tech perspective it's pointless.

Twitter, fine. Even Parler, fine. But your own thing? Bearing in mind his lawyers can't do law, there's no reason to think his tech experts can do tech.

I like the BBC's judicious use of quote marks here ... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-56989500
