What colours are hope and forgiveness? I would much prefer to see Americans marching together towards the light, as in the light of enlightenment.

The colour should be black.

 

Apart from the historical irony they are marching together towards the black hole of history.

America doesn't need a new flag right now. If it did - I'd choose something representing the best ideals of America. In Roddenberry blue..

An interesting thought.

 

Except America isn't united, and probably won't be for many years to come.

 

Should a flag depict the current state of a nation? Or simply represent an ideal?

 

If the latter, the face of Old Glory hasn't helped America achieve unity.

Still deluded ...

 

The Washington Post - Trump’s legal team exited after he insisted impeachment defense focus on false claims of election fraud

 

today

 


The implosion of former president Donald Trump’s legal team comes as Trump remains fixated on arguing at his second impeachment trial that the 2020 election was stolen from him, a defense that advisers warn is ill-conceived and Republican strategists fear will fuel the growing divide in the GOP. ...

 

Two people familiar with the discussions preceding the departure of the legal team said that Trump wanted them to make the case during the trial that he actually won the election.  ...

 

 


... and he's not going to change his tiny little mind.

The New York Times - 77 Days: Trump’s Campaign to Subvert the Election

 

Hours after the United States voted, the president declared the election a fraud - a lie that unleashed a movement that would shatter democratic norms and upend the peaceful transfer of power.

The New York Times - As Trump Raked In Cash Denying His Loss, Little Went to Actual Legal Fight

 

today

 


Former President Donald J. Trump and the Republican Party entered this year having stockpiled more than $175 million from fund-raising in November and December based on his false claims of voter fraud, spending only a tiny fraction on lawyers and bills for his effort to overturn the presidential election, according to new campaign finance reports filed on Sunday night.

 

The picture that emerges in the new Federal Election Commission reports is of Mr. Trump mounting a furious public relations effort to spread the lie and keep generating money from it, rather than making a sustained legal push to try to support his conspiracy theories.

 

His campaign’s single biggest expense in December was a nearly $5 million for his television advertisements.

 

His second-largest payment, $4.4 million, was for online advertising.  ...

 

All told, Mr. Trump’s campaign spent only $10 million on legal costs  ...

 

 

 

 

No surprises there ...  😕

Trump to Defend Self After Receiving Law Degree from Trump University

 

 

ALM BEACH (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump will act as his own defense attorney at his impeachment trial after receiving a law degree from Trump University.

 

 

Trump bestowed the degree upon himself in his capacity as the dean of the Trump University School of Law, where he graduated first in his class.

 

 

[...]

 

 

“It’s true that he will now have a fool for a client, but that was also true of his other attorneys,”

The Washington Post - Opinion: How Trump is forcing Republicans to debase themselves one more time

 

today

 


Donald Trump had acquittal in his second impeachment trial all teed up.

 

If there was any doubt that the necessary 17 Republican senators would never convict the former president, it was dispelled when 45 of 50 voted to essentially declare the entire proceeding unconstitutional.

 

But Trump couldn’t just take the win.

 

He’s determined to use the trial as one more forum to air his absurd lie about how the 2020 election was stolen from him - the lie he used to drive his violent supporters to rampage through the Capitol, the very thing that has him on trial in the first place.

 

Which means those Republican senators will once again have to publicly help him continue spreading that lie, with all the damaging ramifications that flow from that.  ...

 

 

 

 

and ...

 

One of Trump’s new lawyers declined to charge Bill Cosby. The other maintains Jeffrey Epstein was murdered.

Miami CBS: Town Of Palm Beach Conducting Legal Review Of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Residency

The town of Palm Beach is reviewing the use of Mar-a-Lago as Former President Donald Trump’s permanent home.

Some Palm Beach residents say Trump is violating an agreement he made with the town.

When Trump turned the private residence into a social club in 1993, he agreed to certain limitations.

...there were rules concerning parking and traffic, and club members, Trump included, could not spend more than seven consecutive days at Mar-a-Lago, or no more than three weeks total a year.

Trump returned Mar-a-Lago on January 20, skipping the inauguration for President Joe Biden.

Palm Beach Town Manager Kirk Blouin says the matter is under legal review by the Town Attorney and it might be discussed at the upcoming town council meeting on February 9.

In December, the Trump Organization told CNN there was no document or agreement in place that prevents Ttrump from using Mar-a-Lago as his residence.

Meanwhile, many, once-loyal members of Mar-a-Lago are leaving because they no longer want to have any connection to Trump, according to the author of the definitive book about the resort.

Of course he'd use it to his personal advantage. But even if it weren't Trump, I don't see why a former president should be getting intelligence briefings anyway.

Like many toxic relationships trying to rid themselves of their narcissistic masters, Trump ain't going to make it easy.
