Looks like Judge Parker in Michigan wasn’t fooled by Lin Wood, Sidney Powell, et al. all of whom are in deep do-do.
Law licenses in jeopardy, paying attorney’s fees of the other side …It doesn’t get much worse for lawyers.

Afghanistan live updates: U.S. prepares for more ISIS attacks in Kabul – The Washington Post
“The U.S. House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol has requested communications between Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Trump White House officials in the months leading up to the insurrection.”
pogo – Here’s another one for pile.
“This demand comes after Paxton spoke at the pro-Trump rally in Washington, D.C., before the insurrection began, touting his unsuccessful legal effort to overturn the 2020 election. “We will not quit fighting. We’re Texans, we’re Americans, and the fight will go on,” Paxton told the crowd.“
“Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is using the state seal to shield himself against accusations by former top aides.“
“In effect, the AG’s current employees are refuting charges from his former employees that Paxton makes his employees do things that are unethical or illegal. Because they didn’t sign the document, and because it comes from the attorney general’s office, it’s effectively Paxton’s personal declaration that he didn’t do what he’s accused of doing.“
also from wapo:
What’s happening in Afghanistan right now is why previous presidents kicked the can down the road. It was never going to be an easy withdrawal, nor was the Afghan government ever going to be stable. POTUS Joe made a hard decision and he’s humble enough to own it.

NUDE PROTEST – San Francisco, California January 27th, 2013
Most people I know and almost everyone I do not know I do not want to see naked, or in spandex or in tight fitting anything.
Ms. Bronc, ditto.
OK, just so everyone knows, the thread starter above was drafted and posted to the site before the bombing yesterday in Kabul. FWIW, while gratifying, the subject of the post means virtually little in this news cycle compared to the coverage of the death of our servicemen in Kabul yesterday. Also, I want to go on record noting that I agree with Joe’s response – conditions on the ground in Afghanistan dictate that we stick to the short time frame rather than try to reassert control over an uncontrollable situation.
I disagree Pogo. I’d rather talk about something else. Was pleased to see your post. Wish the judge could yank their bar memberships.
And, today’s post is a nice example of a simple conversation starter for those not always in the mood write something more elaborate, which is also nice.
On the subject of the day, I’m glad to see the court system finally dealing with the “neat ideas” the Trumpsters were using. The problem I see is that the court system is slow and it if you don’t have the money to risk fighting such idiocies then you are screwed.
I’ve had it happen to several posts I’ve done. In our world what is important can change in a few seconds. That is why I’m glad we don’t feel the need to stay on topic around here.
Almost all of us need clothing, even those who think their body is perfect. If you are over 25 we don’t need to see it. If you want to flaunt it take a picture and find an airbrush artist. Then I might look but I won’t guarantee not to laugh.
As to Afghanistan
The mess left for Biden to deal with ain’t easy and we need to remember that all of the Americans both military and state department employees are risking their lives to evacuate people who have helped us.
Most of them should have been evacuated a year ago but people in the Trump administration like Mr Miller blocked it from happening. The deaths of our Marines are result of bigotry in the Trump Admin.
This is something I expected to see after the deal was set to leave Southwest Asia and Afghanistan in particular, repubs want to reinvade Afghanistan. One of the big things in my life was the joy of living frozen for a short term tour in a combat zone (frozen means some command has you typed in its very near term org chart). When Vietnam was collapsing and then Saigon fell I had a very bad feeling. President Ford was working with congressional republicans to reinvade Vietnam in 1976. While my orders to Germany, long term tours in peaceful area, were given to others, my freeze to a short term (thirteen month) life in a much less peaceful venue grew heavy. I was discharged from active duty later in 1976 still under the freeze. My specialty was short handed and the Air Force was not above pulling back reservists to active duty. One reason I did not join the Reserves was a great desire not to prove the futility of reinvading Vietnam. I truly did not trust anyone to not pull us back and with flags waving, bands playing and march right into hell.
I am sure there are a few active duty and veterans ready to go back and retake Afghanistan, but many more are ready to close the longest war and get on with their lives.
BlueBronc… great comment!
Human nature says that people hate to be proved wrong… and will go to great and stupid lengths to try to prove themselves right. That’s why we are seeing people who refuse to take the vaccine for covid taking horse worming medicine. They actually do take the disease seriously at this point, but cannot and will not admit it publicly by getting vaccinated. This same stupidity is at work with repubs wanting to reinvade Afghanistan, IMO.
Anyone for a dose of sheep wormer? Unbelievable. Instead of walking into the doctors office and getting a simple injection, much easier than penicillin, which is free, these fruitcakes are buying and ingesting sheep wormer. I guess the bleach was gone so toss in a big one. Better take it with a big glass of moonshine to help it work all the way through. No more sheep worms, but COVID virus will be happy to join in.
Having grown up on a farm and administered wormer to my share of cattle. The mind boggles. I think I’ve still got the tool used to get the bolus on the back of the cows tongue so they had to swallow it.
It may be a business opportunity.
So just call me Doc and open wide., now swallow, no we don’t give refunds cash only.
DeSantis cannot block Florida schools’ mask mandates, judge says – The Washington Post
Arkansas doctor treats jail inmates with de-wormer for COVID – (kten.com)
Blue Bronc, In Texas it is horse wormer, Ain’t no self repecting Texan gonna have anything to do with sheep.
BTW did a bit of googling, Ivermectin is a common active ingredient in both livestock and human dewormer. Of course the amount you give to a 2000lb horse is different from a 200lb man. But if they survive the experiment at least they will be worm free.
pogo, sorry that you were unhappy that your thread was run this morning. if fearless leader hasn’t a post on deck, the 1st draft in line gets posted. i don’t feel it’s my place to either edit a draft or decide if it’s appropriate.
yes, i agree the 13 military and the 170 afghani deaths deserve respectful recognition. the 1000+ u.s. covid deaths yesterday do too. if there had been a thread draft about them, you can be sure it would have been published.
again, my apologies.
“…malaria is one of the top public health threats around the world, with 200 million cases and 400,000 deaths per year. And while a number of other countries are malaria-free — most recently El Salvador, Algeria, Argentina, Paraguay and Uzbekistan — many more are eager to know how the Chinese did it.“
Recently, West Nile virus has shown up in the DFW area. I’ve taken to covering myself in ground cloves. Mosquitoes hate it. I think it smells nice and it’s certainly better than aerosolized repellent.

“Now, as security preparations ramp up for a “Justice for J6” rally planned for September 18 on the Capitol grounds, serious discussions are underway about reinstalling the temporary fencing around the Capitol’s perimeter, …”
They never should have removed it. The threat still exists. My concern is that the chicken-fried Taliban in DC will be, somehow, emboldened by the actual Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan.
Poobah, thanks. Prescience is not in my wheelhouse.
patd, let me get this straight… you’re apologizing for posting my thread starter? Don’t be stupid. I’m grateful for being published even if in retrospect I wonder wtf I was thinking.
oh, and I guess I should say “Let’s Dance”.
So I wonder what the RW (and LW) Biden detractors will find to criticize about this. It’ll be something.
“Hours after confirming the country’s first Delta case in the community, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern ordered the entire nation into lockdown, with the backing of a broad consensus across the political spectrum. Ten days later, the outbreak had spread to 347 cases, with one person in intensive care, as of Friday.“
“After struggling to get supply, New Zealand has one of the lowest Covid-19 vaccination rates in the OECD, with just over 20% of the population fully immunized.“
“…once New Zealand has high rates of vaccination — perhaps between 70% and 80% — Covid could be treated like the measles. “We don’t lock down for measles. But we also don’t tolerate it in the community — we mount a public health response to eliminate measles when we have an outbreak.”
POTUS Joe don’t play. Hunt ‘em down and make ‘em pay at the time of our choosing. Thank goodness for Biden.
