    Donald Trump tried and failed to pass an infrastructure bill so many times over the course of his presidency that his attempts were reduced to a punchline. Now out of office, Trump is trying to ensure that his successor, Joe Biden, suffers the indignity of the “infrastructure week” jokes as well.

    The former president has sounded off repeatedly in the past week about the negotiations taking place between Senate Republicans and Democrats on the Hill and in the White House. He’s encouraged GOP lawmakers to abandon the talks and criticized Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for even entertaining them. Senate Republicans have said, in interviews, that they have directly asked the former president not just to tone down his criticism but to actually support the infrastructure deal.

    “The last time I told him there’s not going to be any tax increases, and I’m of the opinion let’s do a deal that’s good for the roads, ports, and bridges. Let’s do it,” said close Trump ally Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.). “I appreciate the effort of everyone and I’m hoping we get there.”

    But Trump has made clear he is not interested in supporting any kind of Republican deal with Democrats and is hoping allies in Congress kill it.

    The judge was not happy in those proceedings from what I read...

    Sorry to drag the Pride Piper back to the top, but this is great.

    As you surely know, given the time you clearly have available to waste, “Release the Kraken!” is a line from the 2010 remake of 1981’s “Clash of the Titans.” It is uttered by Liam Neeson’s Zeus after mortals ignore his warning that he has (1) a very particular set of skills and (2) a Kraken. The Kraken is released, and some bad things happen. Only, there was no Kraken in Greek mythology. There was a sea monster, but it wasn’t a Kraken. That’s a much later Scandinavian thing. There was a “Kraken” in the 1981 movie, which is why there was one in the sequel, but that one looked more like a scaly ape than a squid. Also, the sea monster in the myth (Kraken or otherwise) loses. That’s its role in the story: to get its *** kicked by the hero. In other words, using “Release the Kraken” as a battle cry is factually wrong and makes no sense logically.

    So the metaphor actually works pretty well here, though not in the way Sidney Powell meant it.

    On Monday, a federal judge in Michigan heard motions to sanction Powell and others involved in one of the many lawsuits demanding that Electoral College votes be handed over to Trump. See, e.g., “Trump Legal Team’s Record So Far: Bad” (Nov. 30, 2020). The state’s motion argued that plaintiffs had “vexatiously multiplied” the proceedings by pursuing frivolous claims, willfully abused the judicial system, and/or acted in bad faith, things that very rarely will get somebody sanctioned, which usually means paying the other side’s attorneys’ fees. The hearing lasted six hours, which I italicize for those who don’t know that this isn’t a good sign for those on the receiving end.

    Money quote:

    “I never got any pushback from the White House or the DOJ or anybody else,” says Patrick, the former U.S. attorney who sued on behalf of the IBWC. “Everybody was like, ‘This is stupid, this violates the law, go ahead.’ ”

    So he can just drop $30m on a wall? Is he one of the small family farmers whom we're supposedly fixing to put out of business with our punitive estate tax proposals? ;-)

    DeathSantis is a godd@mned moron, but there's no way that even he is dumb enough to challenge Trump for the nomination.

    Cruz might do it, but only because I think he's a masochist who quietly gets off on constantly being owned by both the right and the left. Obnoxious though he is, I'm not here to kink-shame.
    I don't see Zodiac doing it but there are others like him who might try. I think he is happy with the grift he has after he was cucked by Trump in '16.

    Well, it's not too much to hope that RDS tries to go without him (his ego knows no bounds), but RDS would fail - spectacularly. There are only a handful of people in the US who have the power to make RDS the GOP nominee. The list starts with Donald Trump and ends with the judges he should be facing in the next year or two.
    Yeah...I mean Trump trounced him at CPAC and that was supposed to be where DeathSantis made his mark. The only shot Ronny has is if Trump doesn't run and crowns him.

    If it isn't Trump though I have a feeling it is going to be someone like CrazyEyes out of SoDak so they can pretend to care about Women. She has all the same worthless creds RDS has and will be even easier to control cause she has no original thoughts in her head. They will use her like they used Palin and hope it shores up the Midwest.

    But I would say it is -900 at the casino Trump is the nominee.

    A lot can happen between now and early '24.

    (I have visions of orange jump suits, but we all know that is not likely).
