Hi, good people! There are SO many good and funny Free Republic threads each week, and I’m afraid my attempts here to document the thread paths are making my posts too long, so I’m going go try (this week, anyway) to make each one as short as possible. So – starting with:

Man arrested for sending threatening emails to Fauci

A Maryland man was arrested for repeatedly threatening to harm Dr. Anthony Fauci and his family, along with another top doctor.
Thomas Patrick Connally Jr., 56, allegedly sent multiple emails that repeatedly threatened acts of gun violence, physical beatings, torture and arson, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Tuesday.
The profanity-laced missives were sent from an encrypted Swiss-based email account between December and last week, and were filled with conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic and homophobic comments, documents allege.
10 years in prison for emails? Yikes.

To: Alter KakerBy a six point spread! In Texas! Unbelievable, indeed, and not good. There must be some back story here. Does Texas have an open primary and Dem crossover did this?
To: Alter KakerCheck and audit for voter fraud.
To: Alter Kakerlooking at 2012/2016, trump didn’t really outperform romney in TX with republicans in general. the difference was with independents, and they apparently don’t vote in primaries.it’s possible, although not probable, that this could be a sign of things to come in tx.
Former Oregon represenative Mike Nearman is banned from entering the Oregon Capitol or the grounds surrounding the building for the next 18 months after pleading guilty Tuesday to official misconduct, a misdemeanor…
Nearman must also perform 80 hours of community service, pay the Legislature $2,700 in restitution and pay $200 in court fees. He’ll technically be on probation but does not have to report to a probation officer. He’ll need to return to court next April to demonstrate that he’s complying with the agreement.
The guilty plea is the result of Nearman’s actions on Dec. 21, 2020 when he opened a door at the Capitol to allow a group of violent demonstrators inside the building, which was closed due to the pandemic. Some of them clashed with police in a vestibule near the entrance…
Speaking to Portland radio talk show host Lars Larson in KXL Tuesday afternoon, Nearman said he pled guilty to avoid having to pay his attorney to sift through all the evidence against him.
“I would have really preferred to make it go to trial,” said Nearman. “The legal bills were stacking up. It made more sense to pay (a fine) and do a little community service, rather than pay twenty or thirty thousand more to attorneys.”
Nearman told Larson that while he admitted guilt in court, “I don’t think I committed a crime and I don’t think I did anything wrong.”..
*****************************This Republican legislator appears to me to have been entrapped when he let some people into the State Capitol in Salem Oregon last December and those people got into a tussle with police.
We obviously have different interpretations of the word “entrapped”. Yours sounds a little like “When I jumped into a freeway full of speeding cars, I was entrapped by two of them and killed”
A dress rehearsal for January 6th in DC?
To: NextrushHe wasn’t entrapped. He gave a lecture, on video, about how “somebody might” let him know that they wanted into the Capitol with a “hypoothetical(sic)” phone number that happened to be his real phone number. Super cutesy. And completely intentional.
Sorry he didn’t expect the violent folks to follow through. He created the opportunity, invited the action, and regretted the outcome. Too bad. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
He forgot the most important rule: if you’re going to play stupid games, don’t do it on tape!
WASHINGTON, July 12 (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Monday appeared likely to reprimand Sidney Powell, a former campaign lawyer for Donald Trump, and other attorneys over a lawsuit they filed in Michigan seeking to overturn Democratic President Joe Biden’s election victory.
U.S. District Judge Linda Parker in Detroit suggested the pro-Trump lawyers should have investigated the Republican former president’s voter fraud claims more carefully before suing.
“Should an attorney be sanctioned for his or her failure to withdraw allegations the attorney came to know were untrue?,” Parker said during a court hearing via video conference. “Is that sanctionable behavior?”
She said she thought affidavits in the case had been submitted in “bad faith.”
Parker held the hearing to determine whether Powell, Lin Wood and other pro-Trump lawyers should be disciplined for a lawsuit they filed last November that made baseless claims of widespread voter fraud in the U.S. presidential election in Michigan.
They are not the only lawyers allied with Trump to land in hot water for supporting his false claims that his election defeat was the result of fraud. New York state and Washington, D.C., in recent weeks suspended former New York City Mayor and Trump confidant Rudy Giuliani’s law license after finding he lied in supporting Trump’s claims.
Parker dismissed the Michigan lawsuit last December, saying in a written decision that Powell’s voter fraud claims were “nothing but speculation and conjecture” and that, in any event, the Texas lawyer waited too long to file her lawsuit.
And since no “Obsession” these days is complete without a good clown slap fight :
In case you missed it.. l lin wood is throwing powell under the bus
And for that idiot who claimed i was just jealous of her…ummm…did you read her filing that said no reasonable person would have believed her

To: hawkawThe information these lawyers provided was highly misleading and just plain wrong.Prove it!
To: MileHiLet’s see.
1) Where’s the kracken that they kept bragging about. Oh yeah. It never happened!
2) the suggestion that 139 percent of registered voters in Detroit voted when in actuality 51 percent did.
And on and on and on it goes. They misled you and everyone else big time, sucked you and a lot of people down a big rabbit hole and they deserve to be disbarred. All of them.
I know you can’t see it right now seeing you still have the rose colored glasses on but maybe, in a few years, you might actually figure it out.
To: hawkawThey didn’t suck me down anything.
