Unfortunately we have people elected to congress who are using such dangerous, violent war rhetoric, too.

Rep Andy Biggs:




Rep Clay Higgins:




Google "1/50K know your bridges". See what comes up. Essentially he's hinting at more insurrection.

It’s especially worrisome to see that on Twitter now because the system and leadership of Twitter that keep those types of comments in check is weak. It’s like the wild west on there now, and EM says truly inflammatory things.

Twitter handled the January 6th insurrection poorly, by all accounts. The rhetoric gained traction. DT isn’t in power, but his allies using Twitter again is troubling, imo.

That's quite a big hint! Has he not followed the Jan. 6th prosecutions/prison sentences?
At this point these guys are coming across as delusional clowns.

The day EM took over twitter was the day I left twitter.
 
Security promises to be air tight ahead of former President Donald Trump’s expected arraignment at downtown Miami’s federal courthouse Tuesday afternoon — but police and federal agents are being tight-lipped about specifics.

“The Miami Police Department is ready to ensure the safety of the city,” is all Miami Police Chief Manny Morales would say Friday about security issues.

The U.S. Marshal Service, which provides courthouse security and will coordinate with local law enforcement, also would not discuss preparations, but issued a statement: “The U.S. Marshals are responsible for the protection of the federal judicial process, and we take that responsibility very seriously. Ensuring that judges can rule independently and free from harm or intimidation is paramount to the rule of law, and a fundamental mission of the USMS.”

 

One photo texted by Walt Nauta, a Trump valet also charged in the indictment, showed documents spilling out of a box, including one marked “SECRET//REL TO USA, FVEY,” the indictment states. That denotes that the information in the document was only supposed to be viewable by the Five Eyes intelligence alliance of the U.S., Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Photos also show a storage room with several boxes of documents. That storage room, the indictment states, “could be reached from multiple outside entrances, including one accessible from the Mar-a-Lago Club pool patio through a doorway that was often left open.”
 

Boxes of records were stored next to a toilet and shower in the Mar-a-Lago Lake Room.

This photo says everything. 10k chandelier. $3k in stone finishes. $500 Home Depot vanity. Windows don’t look up to code. Empty faux-brass towel bar. Boxes shoved in. Odd plastic garbage can. A dollar store shower curtain and rod stupidly put in as an effort to hide the boxes of classified documents that are priceless. (Prices are my approximation.)

The indictment included a meeting between Trump and two attorneys after he was subpoenaed by investigators where the former president described one of his lawyers deleting 30,000 emails belonging to an unidentified woman.

"He was great," Trump said referring to the unidentified attorney, according to the indictment. "She didn't get in any trouble because he said that he was the one who deleted them."

Trump repeatedly hammered his 2016 election opponent Hilary Clinton over accusations that she used a private email server as secretary of state. Clinton was never prosecuted over the claims.
 
Unfortunately, Jr is getting ready for his upcoming speaking tour in Australia ... because "it’s clear the same disease of woke identity politics and cancel culture that’s crippled the US has clearly taken hold there".

Donald Trump Jr. plans speaking tour in Australia to address controversial topics

He is going to need to be very careful, if he wants to come here. Other people's visas have been cancelled or not approved because they have wanted to come here and try to cause trouble.

Hope the Visa cancellation thing can work out! If not, sorry about your luck!
 
I see more boxes hiding behind the “faux” shower curtain (that extends past the window).
You're right! I hadn't noticed them in the photo before, but the indictment mentions boxes in the shower!

"The Mar-a-Lago Club was not an authorized location for the storage, possession, review, display, or discussion of classified documents. Nevertheless,TRUMP stored his boxes containing classified documents in various locations at The Mar-a-Lago Club including in a ballroom, a bathroom and shower, an office space, his bedroom, and a storage room."
 

On Dec. 7, 2021, the indictment claims, Nauta found several of the boxes in the storage room toppled over, revealing at least one document marked confidential to the Five Eyes intelligence alliance.

He then texted a photo of the document to an unnamed Trump employee, who replied “‘Oh no oh no.’”
 

And when people came by to hear Trump talk about his presidency —and often rant about Milley— Trump aides would also record the conversations, in case they ever wanted to contest what was later written.

This practice was followed when ghostwriters for Trump's former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows stopped by. The audio from that July 2021 conversationat Trump's club in Bedminster, N.J., includes remarks related to Iran and how to confront it militarily, two people with knowledge of the case said, requesting anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

The indictment makes reference to a July 2021 "audio-recorded meeting" with "a writer, a publisher and two members of [Trump's] staff, none of whom possessed a security clearance," during which Trump showed them a "plan of attack" prepared for him by "the Defense Department and a senior military official."

He told them, according to the indictment, "the plan was 'highly confidential' and 'secret'" and added, "'as president, I could have declassified it,' and 'Now I can't, you know, but this is still a secret.'"

Attorneys for Trump informed the Justice Department that they've not been able to locate a classified document related to Iran sought by investigators that was discussed during a recorded meeting, two people with knowledge of the case confirmed to CBS News.

One person said it's not clear if the document with the "plan of attack" exists, or if Trump was misidentifying something to those assembled for the meeting, but said prosecutors have the tape.

At least the boxes somewhat cover that ugly floor.
