How can this be used in getting attention to the Judge making a huge error? Shouldn't @GenFlynn plea be thrown out due to Sullivan breaking rule 11?

Haha! SWC has written 5 or 6 articles and he is already on Trump’s Twitter radar

Patterico will not like this as he concludes he was a victim of a conspiracy.

I heard Maine's Gov. Mills called Gov."Kills" on a radio show,because she's killing Maine's economy. Every festival,fair,parade and other events have been cancelled or postponed. The Bangor July 4th parade has been postponed until Labor Day and will be called "Covid Independence Day." *eyeroll*

Breitbart headline: "California’s 25th Congressional District, Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District, and Nebraska hold elections today during the coronavirus crisis."

Let's sum up:
The Repub won in CA, used to be a Repub seat before the Blue Wave but the district voted Hillary in '16

The WI race went to the Repub. Dems are celebrating because Trump won the district by 20 and this guy won by less than that
*rolls eyes*

I read somewhere that the Nebraska primary race saw an AOC Dem barely win the primary over a standard Dem. Dems are excited because NE Dems are trending left.
Good luck in the fall, guys, with your AOC aligned candidate

I would like to go on record to assert the natural born citizen requirement should be suspended in 2024 so we can elect John Magufuli, current president of Tanzania, president of the US. Even his name is only one letter off from being perfect.
Has a masters and PhD in chemistry, has slashed government spending and cut his own salary from $15,000 per month to $4,000 and, unlike say Nancy Pelosi, he's an observant Catholic.
And as I linked before, he sent samples of paw-paws, sheep, goats, engine oil, etc to the WHO for Covid testing.
They either came back positive or indeterminate.
If nothing else he'd carry on the Trump entertainment factor.

Patterico will not like this as he concludes he was a victim of a conspiracy.

Conspiracy of being sent packing by Red State? He's a terrible writer for starters. Half his urine tinged comments at his dogshit blog are telling others they're accusing him of things he didn't say. Here's a clue, dolt: write clearly and people won't be confused. Plus his sentences look like they were composed by an awkward idiot which is why he gets caught when he trolls non insane blogs.

As I have said for a long time, dealing with China is a very expensive thing to do. We just made a great Trade Deal, the ink was barely dry, and the World was hit by the Plague from China. 100 Trade Deals wouldn’t make up the difference - and all those innocent lives lost!

I acknowledge that the dot i and cross t theory is highly unlikely, OL. However, if Richard Dawkins was only 666-1 odds at the Paddy's Place book during the most recent election for Pope, there must be some non-infinity to one odds amount that Judge Sullivan is simply running the laundry through the washer and dryer again to make sure it's shining clean!

Instapundit has a link to an Amazon for 50 face masks. When I looked up the additional info about the product it says:

This is a general use face mask.

This mask is not intended for medical use, and not proven to reduce the transmission of disease...

Made in China.

amom, Helen Smith has been linking that 50 mask thing for weeks. In the comments, people say the masks are from Wuhan, and everyone's complaining that she would link those.

Btw, someone also said that if you click an Insty Amazon link, they get a percentage of anything you buy from Amazon within the next 24 hours, not just if you buy the thing they linked. Does anyone know if that's true?

Cal is closing the universities so a bailout will be even more necessary. It's madness. I hope the other state unis don't follow them off a cliff.

No pro-lockdown person is going to be able to complain to me about the obvious and predictable sequelae to their prescribed policy and not get an earful.

A note I've been meaning to write for a couple of days:
For all the people (this includes ME) who wanted Trump to roll out indictments earlier, look what's happening.

The Flynn case is clear as day. The enemedia is ignoring it or, amazingly, claiming it is not important. After Russia Hoax 24/7 for 3 years.

The enemedia is trying to normalize behaving like 3 year olds. Total emotion. No logic. No truth. They seem to hope that citizens across the nation will join in their hysteria.

It would have been no easier 3 years ago. In fact, it would have been harder.

Just when the push to relax quarantine is gaining momentum, a report shows children are affected by virus:

“The idea that children either don’t get Covid-19 or have really mild disease is an oversimplification,” said Dr. Adam Ratner, the director of pediatric infectious diseases at New York University School of Medicine and Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at N.Y.U. Langone Health. It’s true — and comforting — that there have been fewer cases detected in children, and that the case fatality rate is much lower in children than in adults, especially older adults, he said, but “we have had some extremely sick children.”

I think it's increasingly important not to lose the distinction between the pandemic and the panic over the pandemic which led to the lockdowns.

The virus did not cause great economic damage. The PANIC over the virus and subsequent LOCKDOWNS caused great economic damage.

The virus, which eventually became a pandemic, and the panic over it, are being fused into the same thing - called generally "the pandemic" - by the folks creating the narrative. Don't fall for it. Some smart righties are already just calling it "the pandemic" which is just what they want.

It didn't have to be this way.

Porchlight,

Thanks for that link to Bricks. I passed it onto Mrs. JiB, as she is an AIA member. My great-great grandfather was a brick maker during the early mornings of the day and then a famous cricket bowler later in the day:) His kiln was set up in Brighton, England in a park setting that eventually got surrounding by Georgian and Victorian villas built with those bricks.

An addendum on Bricks:

Those kilns in Brighton were used to make and cure the bricks used to build the fortifications around Paris. A number of them still exist.
