“Donald Trump is still struggling to assemble a proper legal team for his many defense needs, and so far the lawyers that he has on hand have no idea how to properly defend his behavior. Even their court filings are being ridiculed and ripped apart by judges for not being actual complaints or requests, and several have been sent back because they weren’t even in the correct format. Trump is in trouble, and his lawyers are actually making things worse, as Farron Cousins explains.

Well, it’s no secret anybody who’s been following the legal saga of Donald Trump for any bit of time at this point, understands that Donald Trump is suffering from having some of the worst lawyers in the country. And there’s a reason for that. And that’s because of course, as we’ve talked about several times now, no reputable lawyer is willing to take on Donald Trump as a client, because one, they’re not even sure they’d get paid by him, but more importantly, he can’t be controlled and he is completely unpredictable. And it is that last point that is causing his legal team today. So many headaches, according to a new report from the New York times, Donald Trump’s legal team is struggling to come up with a unified message that they can use of course, to defend him not only publicly, but also in court. And the reason for that is because the story keeps changing and Donald Trump’s version of events continues to change.

And all of those things are changing in a way that of course is not flattering to Donald Trump himself. On top of that, several of the legal filings that Trump’s attorneys have put forward have been sent back because their incorrectly formatted. And in many times as the New York times points out, they’re worded like they’re essentially campaign rallies, right? Like the speeches Trump would give it a campaign rally. That’s kind of what is being put into these legal filings, which of course leads everybody to believe that Trump himself is dictating them to his legal team. And because they’re too cowardly to push back and say, you know what, maybe let’s not throw in the words, witch hunt, and let’s not talk about the 2020 election in a court filing that has nothing to do with the 2020 election. They don’t do that instead. They’re just like, oh yes, sir.

Well put it right in. Here we go. We’re gonna file it. And then of course, inevitably these things get sent back or either outright dismissed because the lawyers didn’t present an actual legal argument. You know, that’s actually what happened last week, by the way, in the filing attempting to get the special master, which of course is now a moot point because the DOJ has already had their independent people go through all the documents and determine which ones were attorney client privilege. So the special master thing doesn’t even matter anymore, but Trump’s legal team files the motion with the judge and the judge comes back and says, Hey, um, there’s no argument also, by the way, for the record, you formatted it incorrectly. So I can’t even accept it. But more importantly, this Trump appointed judge said, you, you didn’t make a case. Like you haven’t explained anything. You kind of put forth an incorrectly formatted document that is, you know, as New York

Times says a campaign rally speech, which, Hey, that’s, that’s great for you. But, uh, here in court, we actually have to have things a certain way. And if you can’t point out your standing, if you can’t talk about your grievances that are legitimate in the eyes of the law, I can’t accept this. So that of course is the problem Trump is having today and it doesn’t help anything that he’s constantly out there changing his story. His lawyers going out there on TV saying some of the dumbest things imaginable. If this thing actually does end up with Trump getting indicted and going to trial. If these are the lawyers he’s moving forward with the dude is screwed and he’s screwed because he’s basically, um, I don’t wanna say blacklisted, but he’s shut out all the good lawyers in this country because of his behavior. And again, his refusal to frequently pay people, whether it’s lawyers, contractors, the people running truth, social, whatever it is, he’s not paying bills. So no good lawyer is gonna take it. And of course, we also had the recent reports about Jim trustee. That’s actually a pretty good name for a lawyer, by the way, um, little too on the nose, but either way he picked him out cuz he saw him on TV and thought, I like the way he looks and sounds. You can now work for me.”

Why Do Evangelicals Fall For Conspiracy Theories?…

“You may have noticed your evangelical family and friends buying into conspiracy theories. Why is that?

Hosted by Trevor Poelman”

Again…it’s because we are talking about naturally gullible people.

These types fall for anything, based on the cheapest, most ridiculous excuse for “proof”.

They don’t want what is objectively true…They want whatever increases their own power and control…whatever makes them feel good.

…And, yes…They do try to raise their children, to lack critical thinking skills…From personal experience, that is true…They also instill a fear and distrust of other groups of people…and an overarching social paranoia…

…They teach you there are invisible, interdenominational beings, that can take over your body…making it do violent and creepy things against your will…

…They tell you all sorts of things “invite” such creatures to invade your body…

They teach you all sorts of things as historically, and objectively “true”, despite complete incapability to substantiate any of it.

TV Host Hates How He Raised His Baby Boomer Children…

“The speaker is Steve Allen, actor, comic, writer, musician, creator of The Tonight Show and so much more. The dialogue with him was recorded in 1989. He was a prolific talent on radio, TV, composed thousands of songs, acted in movies, wrote books, was a well-known science skeptic, and the all-around good guy. He is a cofounder of the Tonight Show where he had as guests many of the most famous folks of his time including Elvis Presley and Jerry Lewis. His second marriage was to Jayne Meadows. He died in 2000 after being bumped by another car which broke three of his ribs and caused internal bleeding at 78 years old. I was fortunate to have interviewed him for my TV series on the 1960s. He knew the depression era and the 1950s and was uniquely articulate in presenting his point of view. Search his name on my YouTube channel to find other clips from his interview.

As my subscribers and others know, I have gotten a huge amount of comments on the issue of the baby boomers. Some commentators see the baby boomers as the generation that destroyed the planet, wrecked the economy, destroyed America, was the last generation and everything after it, caused by it, got worse. Baby boomers commenting often feel that they are incorrectly judged by millennials and were in fact just like any other generation although if you admit to having more money than most teens did before or have today. Others feel that the parental generation that raised the baby boomers spoiled them, babied them, made them think that life was easy. Others commented that in fact for them, growing up at this time, life wasn’t easy at all with violent parents who were violent in the home and girls/women being constantly positioned to be submissive and all of the other parental behaviors that restricted children growing up at that time. Others feel that those restrictions are needed again in order to control young people/teenagers and even people in their early 20s.

Steve Allen is considered brave by many commentators because he took responsibility for how badly he felt he had raised his children doing part to the time in which they lived and impart to his own time commitment to his career which often took precedence over his time spent with his family. That was true for a lot of working men at all income levels at that time.”

I’m not convinced that heterosexual marriage to one partner is “the way things were meant to be”…

…It is one way things can be, that works for many…but certainly not all.

Each individual has to find what works for them.

“Japanese gamers are over the PS5. The PlayStation brand is in decline in Japan, and Japanese gamers frustrated with Sony’s censorship and price hikes are migrating to Xbox, Switch and PC. The Xbox Series has sold more than TWICE as many consoles as the Xbox One.”

Aren’t we closing in on…year two “on” the market?…The PS5 is already almost two years old…well into its commercial lifespan…It’s time for a sale price, not a price increase.

…Aren’t consoles supposed to drop in price over time?…

These things came out of the gate ridiculously priced…scalpers have only made things way, way worse…It’s time the gamers got some relief! 😉

Sony needs to get its act together.

“Tech workers are learning the hard way that there is no cheat code for infinite money, and many companies are now cracking the whip. In fact, some workers are salty that they now have to get a good performance review to get a raise… and even keep their jobs. Just… like… every… other… industry. Yes, it’s time for a very rude awakening for Silicon Valley.”

Well, you know…There are people at twitter, who need their asses shit canned…and briskly kicked in the ass out the door…

…Bet twitter could save a bit of money, and vastly improve their service, by taking that action…

…Get rid of all those many critical, shitty performance issues.
