Xi and Sunny p1ssing their pants and throwing their toys out of the cot over Nancy visiting Taiwan. I thought Xi was the great strategist. Putting yourself in a corner with hollow threats is not smart. Nancy called his bluff. What does he do now? Blow up one of his fake islands?

Nancy Pelosi lands in Taiwan despite warnings by Beijing

China warned that it would take some kind of unspecified action if Ms Pelosi set foot in Taiwan - and now we know how it plans to retaliate.


 China is already taking that unspecified action...

 they've said they're taking chop suey off all their menus.

Deep red state Kansas(Trump +15 points) held primaries today. Also held a referendum on abortion, the first test of the new SCOTUS ruling. People voted overwhelmingly to retain the right to abortion 65-35.

Republicans are crapping their corrupt little shorts today.

Attorneys for Alex Jones “messed up” and sent to his legal adversaries “every text message” Jones had written in the past two years – contradicting claims Jones had nothing on his phone pertaining to the deadly Sandy Hook school shooting, which he long maintained was a hoax, it was revealed at his defamation trial on Wednesday.

The stunning revelation surfaced during an exchange in an Austin, Texas, courtroom between Jones and Mark Bankston, a lawyer representing the parents of a six-year-old boy killed in the 2012 attack.

Bankston provided to the Infowars host a copy of a text message he received that criticized his platform’s coverage in 2020 of the coronavirus and likened it to his false theory that the Sandy Hook killings were fake. This was deeply unfavorable to Jones because he had provided sworn testimony at a deposition that he had no text messages on his phone that referenced the Sandy Hook massacre.

“You did get my text messages?” Jones asked Bankston, while on the witness stand. Chuckling sarcastically, Jones added: “You said you didn’t. Nice trick.”

Bankston replied: “Do you know where I got this? Your attorneys messed up and sent me a digital copy of your entire cellphone, with every text message you’ve sent for the past two years.”

Bankston said he told Jones’s lawyers about the mistake, but they did not take “any steps” to label the texts as privileged, and thereby keep them out of court.

“That is how I know you lied when you said you didn’t have text messages about Sandy Hook,” said Bankston, whose clients are Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, the father and mother of Jesse Lewis, who died in the shooting.

Jones tried to parry by saying he would not have turned his phone over to the attorneys who then inadvertently forwarded the texts to Bankston if he was trying to hide anything.

“If I was mistaken, I was mistaken,” Jones said. “But you’ve got the messages right there.”

Jones mockingly told Bankston he now had his “Perry Mason moment”, referring to the TV attorney who often won cases by getting those he was questioning to confess to wrongdoing on the witness stand.

“You know what perjury is, right?” Bankston said, referring to the crime of lying under oath. “I just want to make sure before we go further.”

Jones said he did but maintained he did not try to hide anything on his phone.

Shortly after the engrossing exchange, Rolling Stone reported that the congressional committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol by supporters of former president Donald Trump would subpoena Jones’ texts.

I would be surprised if there is any US state where there is a majority in favour of a total ban on abortion. It's just that the crazies are better mobilised and more determined, as fundamentalists usually are.

Not weird. Abortion is a 70% issue in America. Even Republicans in red states can separate their right to life stance from the state telling them what to do with their bodies.

Mid term elections are all about turnout. They are usually very short of Presidential year elections. This year this SCOTUS abomination has suddenly angered women and has driven a huge ternout campaign for November.

So effective that the polling agencies have made hard revisions and Democrats are now favored to hold and even increase their Senate majority with FiveThirtyEight now giving Dems a 58% chance of increasing. Cook and Sabato similar.

these right wing nutter Republican ''dogs'' have caught the abortion car and now cant get rid of it quick enough.

The whole thing is hilarious. A lying piece of gelati being exposed continually for telling those lies. Caught out time and again. It will be interesting to see where they go with collecting whatever cash they are awarded as he’s been caught hiding assets. That’s the reason his company filed for bankruptcy - he stripped it of $70m+ in assets since the lawsuits began.

That is just the compensation part. Penalty part comes tomorrow. Victim's lawyer is hoping for around $100m but I read somewhere the penalties are limited in Texas. Also to be considered is a criminal referral for the perjury.

It will be interesting to see how they go about collecting. As the Brown & Goldstein families found out when they won the civil judgement against OJ Simpson, it’s one thing to be awarded a payment but quite another to actually be paid the money. No doubt this piece of gelati will go down a similar route and make it as difficult as possible.

The ones in this case have said it is not about the money, they just want the judgement and let the process take care of him.

He and his Infowars company have been found shifting assets. There could be a lot of criminal exposure yet.
