Rudy Giuliani suspended from practicing law in New York over false statements about Trump election loss

A New York court suspended Rudy Giuliani from practicing law in New York state due to making "false and misleading statements" about the election loss of President Donald Trump.

The suspension is a stunning blow to Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who previously served as a top Justice Department official, and the head prosecutor for the federal Southern District of New York.

Giuliani and Trump have since last November made false claims about the legitimacy of the election of President Joe Biden.

First of all, don’t know many who still eat that junk. But how can you serve tuna that contains no traceable amounts of tuna? Plus, I don’t eat most things I can’t see them making fresh - especially things that are mayo based. I know that’s not a big seller in most restaurants and damn sho ain’t ordering it…maybe egg salad on a toasted bagel from Marx Bagels locally….

Homeboy ain’t going out like that….

Simply stating the obvious, MLB has no effing idea what they are doing. These umpires are delaying games searching pitchers for magic glue, Pixie dust or something mystical.

I saw the exchange between Scherzer, Girardi and the umpires. Embarrassing at best. Dude was gonna freaking strip right down to his underwear to prove he had no foreign substances.

Ain’t nobody gonna talk about that epic finish or Booker ignoring Pat Beverly’s trash talking at the end?

I had to mute myself as I jumped up in the bed when he threw it down to win the game. And the oop dime was special….damn,,,,,that was perfect.

Devin -

Hope that you and yours are all safe. Not sure if it touched down or not.

Hotep My Brother….


Trump complained that Black voters 'all f------ hate me, and none of them are going to vote for me' after he'd 'done all this stuff' for them, book says

Damn, this miscreant is something else! I guess his 3 jock sniffing supporters who pollute and trash this board with there mere presence failed miserably yet again. They did not deliver their massa votes from “the blacks” that they run with.  :lmao:

Somebody send him some Vagisil or Summer’s Eve..,he’s got some itching that needs addressing….

For this experiment, we will use the Emancipation Proclamation & Juneteenth as the example.

Pres Lincoln gave his Emancipation Proclamation speech @ Gettysburg, PA on January 1, 1863. Most will cite that the signed proclamation by the sitting president ended slavery.

Fact (ahem, lesser known fact):
On June 19, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, TX and delivered an address that ended both the Civil War & Slavery via General Order Number 3.

Why did it take 2 1/2 years and even after that some Texas slave owners didn’t comply until after the upcoming crop season had been harvested.

If that ain’t a reason to continuing to educate folks on past practices, what the hell else is.

I hit a saltine with that one yesterday and his mouth went dry. Like I scraped that mug out with some 24 grit sandpaper or something.

I asked him simply,,,,why did it take almost 30 months for it to be totally enacted and how would you have felt of that shoe was on the other foot? He had ZERO knowledge of the latter taking Damn near 30 months to occur. He actually made the comment about the Emancipation Proclamation freeing slaves in the south.

How did the Bucks not attack Harden and his injured hamstring all night. Stick Durant put up a 49 pt triple double with an amazing display of contested shot making, especially the second half.

This tweet just about summed it up for me...

Politics / But I thought conservatives said QAnon doesn’t exist....
« on: June 15, 2021, 12:18:15 PM »

A new federal intelligence report warns that adherents of QAnon, the conspiracy theory embraced by some in the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol, could target Democrats and other political opponents for more violence as the movement’s false prophecies increasingly fail to come true.

Many QAnon followers believe former President Donald Trump was fighting enemies within the so-called deep state to expose a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibals operating a child sex trafficking ring. Trump’s loss to President Joe Biden disillusioned some believers in “The Storm,” a supposed reckoning in which Trump’s enemies would be tried and executed. Some adherents have now pivoted into believing that Trump is the “shadow president” or that Biden’s victory was a sham.

The report was compiled by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security and released Monday by Sen. Martin Heinrich, a New Mexico Democrat. It predicts that while some QAnon adherents will pull back, others “likely will begin to believe they can no longer ‘trust the plan’ referenced in QAnon posts and that they have an obligation to change from serving as ‘digital soldiers’ towards engaging in real world violence.”

As major social media companies suspend or remove QAnon-themed accounts, many followers have moved to less well-known platforms and discussed how to radicalize new users on them, the report says.

The report says several factors will contribute to QAnon’s long-term durability, including the COVID-19 pandemic, some social media companies allowing posts about the theories, societal polarization in the U.S., and the “frequency and content of pro-QAnon statements by public individuals who feature prominently in core QAnon narratives.”

The report does not identify any of those public individuals. But Trump, who has praised QAnon followers as “people that love our country,” has repeatedly refused to acknowledge the election is over and spoken baselessly of his victory being “stolen,” despite multiple court rulings and a finding by his own Justice Department upholding the integrity of the election. One longtime ally told The Associated Press that Trump has given credence to a conspiracy theory that he could somehow be reinstated into the presidency in August.

Heinrich and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., requested the assessment in December. Heinrich pressed FBI Director Chris Wray during an intelligence committee hearing in April to release an assessment of how the government views QAnon. “The public deserves to know how the government assesses the threat to our country from those who would act violently on such beliefs,” he said then.

The movement around QAnon has already been linked to political violence, notably during the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection in which some rioters believed they would reverse Trump’s defeat. At least 20 QAnon followers have been charged with federal crimes related to Jan. 6, according to an AP review of court records.

Some charged in the riot wore attire bearing the telltale letter “Q” when they stormed the Capitol. One of the defendants, Jacob Chansley, calls himself the “QAnon Shaman” and wore a furry hat with horns, face paint and no shirt that day. Others had posted about QAnon on social media before the riot.

The Justice Department has arrested more than 400 people in the insurrection, during which pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol, caused about $1.5 million worth of damage and sent lawmakers running for their lives. Five people died and dozens of police officers were wounded. Defendants have argued that Trump himself spurred them on, or they were just following the crowd, or law enforcement allowed them in, or they were the victims of disinformation stoked by right-wing media.

Lawyers for some of the defendants have argued their clients were specifically misguided by QAnon.

Defense attorney Christopher Davis argued that his client, Douglas Jensen, is a victim of internet-driven conspiracy promoted by “very clever people, who were uniquely equipped with slight, if any, moral or social consciousness.” Jensen now realizes that he “bought into a pack of lies,” his lawyer maintains.

“For reasons he does not even understand today, he became a ‘true believer’ and was convinced he doing a noble service by becoming a digital soldier for ‘Q.’ Maybe it was mid-life crisis, the pandemic, or perhaps the message just seemed to elevate him from his ordinary life to an exalted status with an honorable goal,” Davis wrote.

A witness told the FBI that another defendant, Kevin Strong, expressed a belief that Jan. 6 would usher in “World War 3” and the military would be involved. Strong, who was a Federal Aviation Administration employee in San Bernardino, California, had a flag with a QAnon slogan on his house and has declared that he had “Q clearance,” an FBI agent wrote in an affidavit.

“He had recently purchased a new truck and believed that QAnon would cover the debt,” the agent wrote.

Poison Ivey, aka Gov Kay Ivey of Alabama, need to keep them animals under lock and key down there...

WTH,,,,dude straight up shot and killed his passenger at 9 something this morning. Then called 911 to report it.

A man is dead and another is in custody after a shooting inside a car along the highway in Boone County.

It happened around 9 a.m. on I-71 when two men driving in the same car got into an argument and one man shot the other.

The man called the police who told him to pull off at the Shell Gas Station in Verona where he rendered first aid but wasn't successful.

The shooter is in custody and the gun has been recovered, police said. Charges against the driver are pending.

The two men were from Alabama. Police said it's unclear why they were traveling through the area.

WLWT will continue to update this story with more information as it comes in.

General Discussion Forum / McLovin turns 40; HBD McLovin

Superbad fans rejoice...remember the fake id McLovin produced...June 3, 1981....his fake id turned 40 today....

Must give credit where and when it’s due. These deputies showed serious restraint whilst being fired upon by two teens.

A 14-year-old Florida girl was at a hospital Wednesday recovering from gunshot wounds after she and another child broke into a home and found guns they used to shoot at deputies, officials said.

The children, 14 and 12, ran away from a group home in Volusia County on Tuesday before breaking into the home, the sheriff’s office said.

Inside the house, the pair discovered a handgun, shotgun, what was described as an AK-47 style rifle, and ammunition, which they are accused of using on deputies who surrounded the home.

"Nobody comes to work to shoot and kill anybody. We certainly don't come to work to get into gunfights with 12- and 14-year-olds," Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said at a news conference.

Gunfire came from inside the home on several occasions over about 35 minutes, and the 14-year-old was shot after emerging from a garage and pointing the shotgun at deputies, the sheriff's office said.

By Wednesday, she was out of surgery and stable at a hospital, it said. NBC News is not naming the children because of their ages.

No one else was injured in the incident, officials said.

Late Tuesday afternoon, about 5 p.m., the children were reported missing from the group home, the sheriff said.

About two and a half hours later, he said, deputies were informed of a break-in at a home and arrived to find shattered windows.

The deputies did not enter but contacted the homeowner, who said he was not home but that there were three guns and 200 rounds of ammunition inside.

Officials surrounded the house and announced their presence, the sheriff said, and around 8:30 p.m., the shooting started from inside the house toward the officers.

That Trainwreck was the funniest show on tv. They all had to be high, drunk or both. And don’t let my main man, Gene Gene The Dancing Machine get loose...Chuck would go bezerk.... :lmao:

CDC just issued statement that fully vaccinated people don’t have to wear a mask - indoors or outdoors.
