I'm starting to think that there may not be perp walks. Trump might just decide to burn it to the ground, cut off all the money, and start from the foundations.

Robin--my professional life has been all about people throwing up. ;-)
I see nothing that looks like impending vomit. Three viewings. Once with no sound.

(Seriously--huge thing in our field to have made such big strides in eliminating that from the perioperative period. Puking costs big bucks.)

Kinda teasing, but really--to me, he does not look like he's about to hurl, or trying not to. No gagging, no excessive swallowing, no drooling. LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of blinking though. But blinking is not typically a prelude to hurling.
And way too much talking--I have never seen anyone about to vomit talk so fluently. It's more like phrases that get blurted out.

(I never had thought about all this before. I guess I have learned something from passing emesis basins to people.)

I very much hope YOU are right.

After I finished laughing, I remembered that I must be much more careful here with my hyperbole. ;-) Okay, not about to throw up, but I do think he just got back from outside the building, where he was holding a finger up to see which way the wind is blowing and has decided to play the shocked and appalled prosector.

The Infamous Ignatz

--What I don't understand is why there can't be a couple of perp walks as early bites. If we are waiting for perfect prosecutions, I think we are going to starve.--

There should be a whole bunch of perp walks but corrupt systems are gamed systems. The corrupt are smart and know how to run a deal like Biden's Burisma scam, where the corruption is flagrant, but, absent a corruptocrat admitting their crime, they are often not even prosecutable or provable as crimes. Add in blue hell jury pools, corrupt judges, corrupt media reporting, corrupt prosecutors [even if the higher ups are not corrupt] and a hundred other systemic blockages and satisfaction down that road is hard to achieve.
And that is the primary reason the revolt you doubt will occur so often does. Everyone knows the system is corrupt but the means by which it can be rooted out is itself corrupted. And so, absent a political fix, tensions build as the hoi polloi watch the corrupt having their cake and eating it too. And so movements and anger as we see worldwide begin to build. It builds even more as the corrupt state power is used by the corrupt against the officials the people have placed in power to end the unelected state's power; like the kangaroo courts and underhanded tactics Netanyahu, Boris and Trump are facing.

Narciso

Take the caseof lutsenko hes been a reformer a rebel for a generation, against the kuchmas that signed that corrupt deal with moscow, he was nabbed by a corrupt prosecutor in the tymochenko era who him self went to prison, it was some ridiculous thing like they went after bem carson for. He served some time was released and joined the maidan, this is why poroshenko gave him the gemeral prosecutor job even though he was an engineer he was owed.

The Infamous Ignatz

Seems to me this era is like the 1930s but stood on its head.
The power thirsty thieves [fascists, Nazis, communists, socialists] spent the early part of the last century using a barbarian-at-the-gates frontal assault strategy to destroy institutions inimical to their thirst for power.
Didn't work out too well.
So, in the post war era they have instead, pretty much worldwide, been tunneling away into the same institutions to convert them to being very imical indeed to their plans, and a lefty is nothing without plans.
Then, you had a conflagration as tyrants assaulted the people's institutions violently because they couldn't or wouldn't defeat them peacefully. Now the tyrants own the people's former institutions and the people's only recourse, if they wish to take them back, is seemingly another conflagration.

There should be a whole bunch of perp walks but corrupt systems are gamed systems.

If we can't have perp walks, can we at least have some pre-dawn SWAT raids, frozen bank accounts, and retirement-fund-destroying legal defense costs imposed on some of the worst traitors?

Even if they don't ever set foot in a courtroom, why can't we apply some "process as punishment" to them, the way we've been doing to people on our side with no cause for decades now?

Does the Queen stripping Andrew of his royal duties and other goodies also strip him of any 'diplomatic' immunities normally granted to Royals and diplomats in the US?

If so, would he sit for his FBI interview here or demand they travel there?

If they travel there and indict, will he be extradited by the Royal courts without the diplo protections normally afforded to Royals?

Somehow he has Nancy in a position where she either has to drive the clown car off the cliff and go forward with a doomed impeachment trial in the Senate where the Republicans will bring in all of their witnesses including Hunter Biden or she lights a fuse under her lunatic base and doesn't impeach.

Either way he wins.

The X-17 Particle

I always love stuff which upsets the known apple cart! Partly, I suppose, because I don't actually understand the apples much at all, and I get perverse enjoyment out of finding out that neither do the experts. I'm a big photon fan though, and I object to this obvious attempt to turn them into bosons.

A team of researchers at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), proposed that the unknown particle was not a dark photon, but rather a boson — specifically, a "protophobic X boson," which would be indicative of a fifth fundamental force.
Nice and tidy, no? Move along. Nothing to see here really. There might be a fifth force, but we can still make it conform to our understanding of how things work. Or ought to.
