While Trump gets the S.C. to take his B.S. claim that he is immune which is as absurd as declaring he is a banana, he has quietly moved his two main cash businesses out of N.Y. State and has hidden them in FL. to avoid payment to Jean Carroll and the fraud case. However, he couldn't move Trump Tower.

Moving and hiding his assets is against the judge's orders but I guess he thinks he is immune.

They have now taken 130 days to hear the Trump immunity case which should be enough to delay a trial or stop a trial before the election.

The Supreme Court is going to wade into this. They didn't accept the well-reasoned and well-written decision from the appellate court. The shit is getting deeper. This comes up on the same day that Trump's folks tried to get the court to accept about 15 cents on the dollar of his settlement costs. At least that judge told him "NO." Trump must come up with the full bond amount to cover the $454 million civil fraud trial judgment, appeals court judge rules
Associate Justice Anil Singh, however, lifted a ban on Trump’s ability to obtain loans from a New York bank, which could allow him to access the equity in his assets to back the full bond amount.

Singh denied Trump’s request to delay his obligation to post $454 million until a full appellate panel hears his motion to stay enforcement of that judgment until his appeals of the civil fraud ruling are over.

If for any number of reasons Trump can not get nominated or run for PREZ who will get the nod? Mitch McConnel is available but is older than Biden. I picture Mitch frozen at the mike while a mechanical voice like Hawking drones on. All other contenders seem as unlikely.
Trump may think he will seek and not accept election results but he may not have a liars choice.

Former Aussie Prime Minister who showed himself as a poor imitation of Trump, in my opinion, is leaving Parliament and will take up two new jobs which are based in the USA but he will be working from Australia. His farewell parliamentary speech was yesterday. I didn't bother watching it.

Scary!!

Questions raised after Scott Morrison’s new defence job revealed

"Mr Morrison will clock in alongside key former Trump figures, former secretary of state Mike Pompeo and ex-security advisor Robert O’Brien.

"Scott Morrison has come under fire for taking on two jobs in the US private defence sector after the former prime minister announced his exit from politics.

"After revealing plans to resign in February, Mr Morrison said he would be joining consulting firm American Global Strategies as non-executive vice chairman.

"He will also assume a strategic advisor role with AUKUS investor DYNE Maritime, alongside former US Secretary of State and ex-CIA director Mike Pompeo.

"The venture capital company invests in technologies related to the joint security agreement that was orchestrated under Mr Morrison’s leadership.

"Greens [political party] defence spokesman David Shoebridge said Mr Morrison’s swift move into the private defence sector was an example of why the public was cynical about politicians.

“'Morrison is leaving politics only to grab his very unfair share of the billions of dollars of public money that he has shovelled into AUKUS,' Senator Shoebridge said.


The rest of the article has some interesting views, which I tend to agree with.

Morrison aka ScoMo was a slippery character while in the role of PM and he'll still be slippery in his new roles.

The punchline from Don's RNC article:
And what have the Romneys gotten for their convenient pro-Trump obsequiousness? Their legacy left in rubble, ostracized from a Republican Party they helped to build.

As the saying goes, “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.”

The media could learn from that also - if you go for the ratings because Trump says stupid things you just promote his brand, as stupid as it is.

For those needing a scorecard (or a court calendar) here is the Just Security site with all of the stats and dates. All week next week Mar-a-Lago stuff is up; the MAL abbreviation suits Trump and this case perfectly; from Dictionary.com: "a combining form meaning “bad,” “wrongful,” “ill,” occurring originally in loanwords from French (malapert); on this model, used in the formation of other words (malfunction; malcontent)."

The South Carolina primary is today, and Haley says she's in it for the long run, even if Trump wins today. She can do the math and is hoping that she's the last woman standing when Trump is officially found guilty of a federal crime. Gotta give her credit for figuring that out, but she has been a Trump toady for too long to make her an acceptable candidate. Hell, at this point, Romney should run. He's a lot less crazy sounding now; in his campaign against Obama in 2012 he was rejected as a tool of the rich. At least he is a normal human being. And he'd fit as far as the age of the rest of them, he's a year younger than Trump. :)

Donuel, I read your comment about the zygotes and embryos.

The only reason I knew why you were mentioning that is because on Wednesday on the Oz TV show called Planet America Fireside Chat there was a segment on the Alabama ruling.

One political comment on the show was that this ruling would alienate more voters, especially couples hoping to have successful outcomes with in vitro fertilisation (IVF) programmes. A consequence of preventing or limiting IVF would be to also limit the number of children being born, which would seem to be contrary to the intention of Republicans who want to limit abortions to encourage more children being born.

Step 1: Ensure a R majority in the House by not certifying certain DEM wins

Step 2: Challenge certain States in the Presidential election.

Step 3: MAKE SURE neither candidate has enough delegates to win and the Constitution says the House will decide the election.



The election deniers can simply not certify and achieve a Trump win.

This might be a bit confusing, but ...

I use a term "sheepdogging" in certain situations where someone is out of control (usually in work situations with a pushy person doing things s/he shouldn't be doing) and then another person begins to quietly, determinedly round her/him up, like smart, quietly clever sheepdogs rounding up a mob of sheep based on commands from a nearby human.

It may take a bit of running around by the dogs, but eventually the mob of sheep are doing what they are expected to do. The sheep may not even realise that they have been outwitted by dogs and humans. The dogs don't bark or make a fuss. They just get on with the job.

I've been thinking about that in relation to Trump and his legal adventures. Initially he might think he is in control of the situation, but little by little he is being herded into a place where he no longer has as much control as he expects and he will have to start doing what he is told.

Another way of looking at it is that the noose around Trump's neck - figuratively speaking - is softly tightening, little by little every day and he might think he'll get away with it all, but I think he underestimates his legal opponents.

The orders include the interest on some of those amounts that goes back years, added onto the base announced last week.

Judge denies Trump's request to delay enforcement of $355M fraud case penalties
Trump's lawyers had requested a 30-day delay in the enforcement of penalties.
The judge in former President Donald Trump's civil fraud case has rejected a request from the defense to delay the enforcement of the penalties in the case.

The defendants had asked Judge Arthur Engoron to delay the enforcement of the penalties by 30 days to allow for an "orderly post-judgment process."

"You have failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay," Engoron wrote in an email posted Thursday to the court docket. "I am confident that the Appellate Division will protect your appellate rights.

The LA Times has a paywall you hit pretty quickly, but I'll leave the share crap in the URL and it might open.

Opinion: How not to cover Donald Trump’s bizarre 2024 campaign for president

From October 7, 2023.
It starts:
The press should borrow a lyric from “The Sound of Music” and ask itself: “How do you solve a problem like Donald?” Or, put another way, how should journalists cover Trump’s unprecedented campaign for president while under indictment for trying to overturn an election and more?

The question concerns not just Trump but also politics and campaigns more broadly in an age of fragmented media and polarized politics. The answer requires recognizing journalists’ altered role and fulfilling it with more care, preparation and diligence.

Many confronting the challenge of covering Trump conclude that, as a recent column in the Arizona Republic put it, “It’s time to stop giving Trump airtime.” The larger point is that the media shouldn’t give exposure to people they know are going to make provably false assertions.

The problem with the “Don’t amplify liars” argument is twofold. First, the press is no longer a gatekeeper of what people know; it’s more often an annotator of what they’ve already heard elsewhere. So not covering Trump, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene or others in politics who say patently false things will not silence them. It will just leave them less examined.

Second, it’s a dereliction of the press’ duty to ignore powerful dissemblers and liars in public life. We have an obligation to explain what’s false and offer clear and persuasive evidence of the truth. We have to help the public understand.

The suggestion here is to develop a questioning strategy as an attorney would. "Attorneys identify where they want to end up and work backward, developing a series of questions that will guide a dishonest witness to a place where their evasions are exposed. Journalists need to plan their interviews in the same way but too often don’t."

It describes a Trump interview with Jonathan Swan that didn't go the way Trump wanted because the journalist was prepared to refute the fake stuff Trump spouted. And concludes, regarding the Meet The Press interview used to start the article, "When journalists lack that level of preparation, they slide into a trap Welker fell into. She ended up in a debate with Trump, repeatedly insisting “That’s not true” but having nothing in hand to prove it."

It gives a lot of examples of places journalists should do their research and fact-checking, and spend less time covering rallies (I think that is finally beginning to be the case for Trump rallies, fewer national journalists there, at any rate.)

Supreme Court allows sanctions against Trump-allied lawyers over 2020 election lawsuit
The justices leave in place an appeals court ruling that partly upheld sanctions arising from a lawsuit claiming that presidential election results in Michigan were rigged.
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected appeals brought by Trump-allied lawyers who faced legal sanctions for baselessly alleging in court that the 2020 election in Michigan was fraudulently won by President Joe Biden.

By rejecting the appeals, the court left in place a June 2023 ruling by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that partially upheld the sanctions. . . .The lawyers were ordered to pay legal fees, undertake new legal training and were referred to their respective state bar associations for any disciplinary procedures.

These attorneys are going to be bankrupt long before Trump is.

He sold a house he owned in L.A. He has been, I don't know, stockpiling the cash he has been selling down, we don't know how much cash he has on hand. He said last year, close to 400 million."

The gold-tone sneakers are his latest desperate attempt to raise cash. I guess he isn't aware of the millions-worth of Kanye West sneakers that Adidas is trying to unload since they cut ties. There may be a glut in the name-brand sneakers world.

Jack Smith met with Cannon for several hours last week; perhaps she is beginning to see that the horse she is backing is going down anyway so she might as well help lead him to that water. (Sorry about those mangled metaphors.)

The stories people were telling and illustrating with graphics yesterday were remarkable. Mar A Lago is a prime example - the Florida county estimates it is worth between $18 and $27m, but Trump was reporting 10 times those amounts. The property in Westchester County, NY, was valued by Trump as if the land had been subdivided and seven mansions already built and turnkey ready. No taking into account the process of getting permission to subdivide or the cost of building all of those dwellings.

If Trump really needs cash there are billionaires here and in Saudi Arabia that want millions of dollars worth of reasons for Trump to give them a good deal - if he is ever President again.

Nobody is asking me but I think Trump is an historic bad bet.
Even Kushner got 2 billion from the Middle East. Not bad for a Real Estate panhandler.

I was being facetious. Compared to me and what's in MY pocket, his multi-million penalties are only pocket change for him. LOL

And I realised after I had posted that Fani Willis is an Attorney-General and not a judge, but I feel better knowing that she was a judge before because I recall her being referred to as a judge. (Maybe I'm not losing quite so many marbles as I think I am.)

A more analytical article in (Oz) ABC News:

Donald Trump faces countless court cases. But this $US355 million fraud ruling could hurt the most


It's a long article, but I think it is worth reading. The section headings are:

What did the court decide?
Remind me – what's this case about?
What is a 'scorched earth defence' and why did it backfire?
How has Trump reacted?
What does this mean for Trump's real estate empire?
What other cases are looming over Trump?

Trump can't even find a bond for the 5 million he owes Jean.
btw Helen, Fani is merely a prosecutor now but was formerly a judge.

Hey Donald Jr and Eric got 4 million dollar fines on top of the cash dad owes.

Listening to MSNBC this evening it sounds like it isn't pocket change - Trump has been hemorrhaging cash because he takes cash from profitable businesses and puts it into those that aren't. And from the high of being on TV on the apprentice program to running for office, he lost the cash that used to come in from the Trump branding. He has apparently been quietly selling off properties.

Good.

Donald Trump must pay $US355 million in penalties, barred from NY business for three years, judge rules

"In short: Donald Trump will have to pay $US354.9 million in penalties for fraudulently overstating his net worth by as much as US$3.6 billion a year over a decade to get bankers to give him better loan terms.

"Mr Trump and his adult sons, Don Jr and Eric, were defendants in the case - the younger Trumps were each ordered by the judge to pay $US4 million

"What's next? Mr Trump's lawyer Alina Habba said in a statement that the ruling was a "manifest injustice" and said she plans to appeal the ruling."

...

"Justice Engoron cancelled his prior ruling from September ordering the "dissolution" of companies that control pillars of Mr Trump's real estate empire, saying on Friday that this was no longer necessary because he is appointing an independent monitor and compliance director to oversee Mr Trump's businesses.

"In the ruling, Justice Engoron wrote that Mr Trump and the other defendants in the case 'are incapable of admitting the error of their ways'.

"'Their complete lack of contrition and remorse borders on pathological,' Justice Engoron wrote.

"'Instead, they adopt a 'see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' posture that the evidence belies.'"

"It sounds even more impressive in Aussie dollars, $AU543 million.
...


I'm guessing it's just pocket money for him, but not being able to operate in New York for three years will make his blood boil, I bet.
