Since at least the 1964 election (Operation Eagle Eye) the Republican party has been the party of voter suppression. I thought when the decision came down on Monday that the biggest American political story of the week had occurred. With the value of the subsequent history, I wasn’t wrong. It didn’t get a lot of press but the potential is both huge and almost inevitable to be reached!
Fast and furious; that is how the political news keeps coming in. Today I’ll try and briefly comment on some of it.
What’s going on? (OK, I’d probably added an unnecessary adjective that wouldn’t pass the PG test). When evaluating legal things Trump, I seem to ask myself that daily and I bet you do too. It’s actually very simple when you boil it down. I’ll try to explain today.
Wow! It’s the middle of June already. It seems like 2023 is flying by. Or perhaps it is just my age showing. In any event, I’ll take another stab at catching up a bit today.
Are you frustrated with the pace (and at this point too often lack) of justice for Donald Trump and the January 6th insurrectionists? If so, count yourself among the many. It’s coming and, in some cases, has already occurred. Seriously! We found that out again last week.
Last week was again a week with a lot of competition for the biggest political story of the week but I’m choosing the conviction of four members of the Proud Boys on seditious conspiracy. They were also found guilty of other felonies and other Proud Boys were also found guilty of lesser felonies. These verdicts were not lone occurrences but additions to previous convictions. Keep in mind that seditious conspiracy is seldom charged because it is nearly impossible to get a conviction on it. Seditious conspiracy carries a possible penalty of 20 years in federal prison.
