“The 413 texts between Terrence Bradley and Ashleigh Merchant, an attorney for one of Trump’s co-defendants, reveal months of communications between the two, underscoring the extent to which Bradley assisted Merchant’s pursuit of evidence to back up claims #FaniWillis and her top prosecutor, Nathan Wade, engaged in an improper romantic relationship.”
The argument that Trump doesn't have enough cash to pay his fraud penalty is garbage.
He turned his ill-gotten gains into real estate assets. What if he had turned them into artworks or crypto or gold bars? Liquidate those assets and make him cough it up. It shouldn't matter where or how he's hidden his money.
New: U.S. Supreme Court will decide if Trump can be prosecuted in 2020 election interference case.
1/... "When the AG raised objections in court documents to the proposal to put up a reduced amount of collateral, Letitia James drew attention to another matter entirely: #Trump appears to be trying to move assets out of her reach.
Dennis Fan, a sr assistant solicitor general at AG’s office, alerted appellate judges at the state’s First Judicial Department that Trump has sneakily relocated business entities from #NewYork to #Florida. #legal
#MexicoCity is in trouble deep.
The ground subsidence has broken many water and sewer main pipes which is polluting what remains of the main aquifer they draw water from.

🤭👉🏼 “#Trump offered NY appeals court a bond of only $100 mil to pause the more than $450 million penalty he faces in his civil fraud case, a clear sign that the former president lacks the $ to cover the full amount.
..also asked to pause enforcement of finan penalty & wide range of other punishments the judge levied.” #legal
real argument right now:
...problems in society today predate capitalism by thousands of years. Capitalism didn't create greed.
emotionally stunted folks allowed greed to motivate them.
And cultures…that are not very emotionally developed …allowed those folks rise to power.
It's is the lack of emotional development in people -that is ACTIVELY discouraged by patriarchy and militaries everywhere that is closer to the root problem, IMO.
how do you think that will go over?
Did you see that Reuters article that said skipping a pre-flight check may have led to the Intuitive Machines lander Odysseus tipping over?

The measure targets the business of selling people’s personal information, which the White House said could be used “to track Americans (including military service members), pry into their personal lives," and be passed on to foreign intelligence.
I have been informed that solar eclipse glasses have been ordered for me, I didn’t know I needed them? 🤷🏼♀️
We've seen that missions to the Moon have very short lifespans. As soon as the two-week-long lunar night sets in, temperatures drop so low rovers and landers can't keep their batteries warm, ending their missions. A new paper proposes that a spacecraft in a halo orbit on the far side of the Moon could stay in perpetual sunlight and then beam power wirelessly to rovers and landers, helping them survive the lunar night and communicate from the far side.
Thinking carrier pigeons is the only safe form of communication now.
Perfect filming weather today.
Despite claims by #Antitrans #extremist Dr. #RiittakerttuKaltiala from #Finland that #trans care isn't #lifesaving, experts counter this is untrue. Despite working to hide the evidence, the #study indicates #trans care saves lives.
Report on one of the earliest known circular plazas in #Andean #SouthAmerica & one of the earliest examples of #megalithic ceremonial #architecture in the Americas. This is constructed of large free-standing & vertically placed megalithic stones - located in #Cajamarca basin of northern #Peruvian #Andes. This construction method has never before been reported in the Andes & is #distinct from other monumental circular plazas in the region.
I'm surprised that so many people don't know this.
