"... the Kurdish women and their children were singled out for particularly harsh treatment, allowed only an hour of outdoor exercise per week.
The conditions were dire—no sheets on the beds, just a mattress, pillow, and blanket...”

Don't believe it! The MAGAs don't want to take women's voting right. They want to end the vote.

The first sign of spring in an unintentional garden the past three years- daikon radish sprouts. We scattered seeds as a soil booster and I discovered that I don't much care for the radish part, but the greens and seed pods are really tasty and make a great salad.

Where in the US Constitution does it say you must have a permit for peaceful protest, no matter your number?

Via Josh Gerstein:

JUST IN: DC Circuit upholds misdemeanor statute barring parading and picketing in Capitol, used to charge 1000+ #Jan6 defendants, rejects 1st Amendment overbreadth challenge. #legal

ADDED: ... ruling that the building — as opposed to the exterior grounds — is NOT, by law, a public forum.

I suspect there is also a rule prohibiting carrying licensed concealed weapons in the Capitol?

The Chinese and Russians don't need millions to buy enough influence to interfere in the elections of other countries- just a few hundred thousand to buy people ready for corruption.

Maybe because the "nice" countries have national healthcare and better public services that "conservatives" want to end?

I thought of a good way to view the eclipse, as much as we are forecast to see today. Dug out and dusted off the old Artograph projector and tested it yesterday with the full sun. Perfect! Now if the overcast will clear in time...

"Williams was elected party chair in 2023 after supporting conspiracy theories that Trump won the 2020 election and he introduced a resolution in the state house in 2022 to thank a state representative and others who participated in the 6 January insurrection.
He also tried to include the 'let’s go Brandon' phrase as part of his name on the 2020 ballot."

There was a political discussion taking place on the bus yesterday.

Youngish guy spewing right wing talking points.
I introduced nuance to the conversation.
Then end of the conversation came with him yelling at me, “Don’t you watch any news?!?”

Upon my exit he said he was sorry if he hurt my feelings.

“What infuriated me was the “don’t you watch the news” question. No, I don’t. I don’t watch television. What I do is read many more publications in a day than you could possibly imagine.”

Does anyone get news from tv anymore. Don't answer that. I know some who have FOX on all day long.

🤨ADDED via @lolgop : (I think No Labels is quitting because RFK Jr. is already a good enough spoiler to help Trump.)

👀👀Via Kyle Griffin:

Breaking WSJ: No Labels is abandoning efforts to create a 'unity ticket' aiming to win the White House, according to people familiar with the plans.

The way I see it, Kennedy is apt to take more Trump votes than Biden.

A federal judge has granted a conservative political group access to New Mexicans’ voter registration information, overriding the secretary of state’s efforts to block the group from obtaining the data and posting it on a searchable national website.

New thousand year Reich only plans for 100 years. Hitler's Nazi Germany only lasted, generously, eleven years.
Trump and his crew should save us all a lot of trouble and go to the Führerbunker now.

Finally, a judge who may act against Trump?
"... the judge, Sam Glasscock III, professed himself “gobsmacked” to learn Trump had filed suit in Florida rather than make a counterclaim in Delaware.
Glasscock said he would consider sanctions against Trump."
