Hi TW!

AdLib2 hours ago

Ad….I. believe that the GOP is working. try hard to turn the worm…to their benefit.

MurphTheSurf3

glenn – I was worried about the juror whose news sources were Truth Social and Twitter. But…turned out it was still a sensible person!

AdLib2 hours ago

Good evening Murph, TW. For sure it is a happy day.

glenn – You may need to close then re-open the app to get the voice to text working properly.

AdLib2 hours ago

Or restart your device.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph how are the folks out your way taking the good news?

twilson117

2 hours ago

Certainly it is a better thing to have him found guilty than either innocent or freed by a hung jury.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

I can’t believe how the GOP is trying to gaslight us again. Good Lord what does it take for these people to figure out that this man is just a damn crook? And a sleaze ball the boot?

glenn

2 hours ago

Murph – Aw, come on, let yourself enjoy and appreciate that Trump is now a convicted criminal who may very well go to prison or at least be stuck with an ankle bracelet!

AdLib2 hours ago

TW…as with so much else….not a lot of talk….not a lot of reaction….when mentioned the topic quickly becomes one of a Democratic plot to Lynch T.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

Murph wow some just can’t or won’t accept the fact Trump is no good low down dirty dog liar.

twilson117

Ad…you benefit from life in LaLa Land…I live in DumbDumb Land and live with that.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

glenn – First off, I continue to despise the MSM for being megaphones for the Trump and MAGA propaganda. But…a snap poll taken after the verdict shows a 2 point gain for Biden in one day. I don’t think the anti-justice-system Repubs who are also anti-democracy will end up benefitting from this attack on America and its democracy.

AdLib2 hours ago

Glenn you’re correct its hard for some people to accept their hero is not that at all.

twilson117

2 hours ago

What do you all think? Do you think he’ll serve any time in prison/jail? I don’t think he’ll ever see the inside of one unfortunately. However I didn’t think we’d get a guilty verdict either so I could be wrong again. Read an article today and the author says he should go to prison because Cohen went to prison for the same crime. Why shouldn’t the “boss” go to prison too?

glenn

2 hours ago

Ad you see where Johnson is asking the SC to look into the verdict?

twilson117

2 hours ago

TW…and there are grounds for the Scotus doing just that….the mix of federal and state law created by the unique conditions under which the crimes took place.

MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago

AD, Wow. I saw an article today and it said that the convicted felon actually gained 6% after the verdict. So like with everything else in politics lately, it’s hard to discern what is really going on.

glenn

2 hours ago

Murph – Still, you should let yourself enjoy, at least for the weekend, that Trump has finally been nailed for being a criminal and he will carry that scarlet letter throughout the election and history. The MAGAs and MSM may want to act like this could benefit Trump but that’s just propaganda. Trump may have his base excited but he needs indie voters to swing his way and if Dems and Biden run on, “You can’t give a convicted criminal the greatest power in the world? What do you think he will do with it?!”, they win hands down.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph I honestly didn’t know that. But, something tells me maybe they might all of a sudden become deaf and blind on this one?

twilson117

an hour ago

A verdict after nine hours of deliberation….a very, very fast outcome….and that is being pointed to as proof that the fix was in….at least that is how the folks on the right see it.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

AD, also read a couple of articles today that if the convicted felon really does become president will he be able to visit other countries? Because some countries won’t let convicted felons in their country. Interesting take.

glenn

an hour ago

glenn – As you say, Cohen was sentenced to 3 years for following Trump’s orders to commit the crimes Trump was convicted of. Hard to say a sentence that’s different from the mastermind of the crime should be less than his stooge.

AdLiban hour ago

TW, do you think Scotus will become deaf and blind and not take the case? My feeling is with the Scotus we have now they’ll freaking pardon him.

glenn

an hour ago

Glenn….6 percent…really…..

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Murph I believe we all know if they took nine days they would have said the same thing. It’s tough for folks like that suddenly see their hero doesn’t have any clothes on.

twilson117

an hour ago

AD, yes and to follow up on the convicted felon getting the same sentence as Cohen, there was also speculation that if the January 6 trial ever occurs and he is guilty, will he be put in prison for that? After all look how many of his followers are serving time for that.

glenn

an hour ago

Glenn I have to be honest they way this court has behaved I have no idea what they would do and that for me is cause for concern.

twilson117

an hour ago

TW – There is a very thin reed to rely on to take this to the SCOTUS. From what I saw on MSNBC tonight, there’s a tiny constitutional issue which involves combining federal and state crimes but that didn’t happen. I don’t trust the SCOTUS, they could violate the law and constitution to reverse the decision but Trump still has to go all the way through the NY State appeals process before that and by the time he gets to the SCOTUS or tries to, he will have been defeated and there could be 13 SCOTUS judges where the majority isn’t in his pocket.

AdLiban hour ago

What I hope is that Trump caves in…that the power of the verdict and the pressure it represents collapses his defenses and leaves him a simpering idiot.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Murph, yeah I’m pretty sure it was 6%. And it was a fairly reputable website I read it on. I could be wrong about the percentage but it did say that The convicted felon actually gained points in a pole

glenn

an hour ago

In a poll.

glenn

an hour ago

glenn – That is clearly a bigus poll. A 6% gain for Trump is ridiculous. I’m skeptical of most polls but a small change makes sense, 6% is ridiculous.

AdLiban hour ago

Hi!!! Full house tonight.

choicelady

Hey CL! Don the Con(vict) now!

AdLiban hour ago

CL is the house raise the roof everyong

twilson117

an hour ago

Hello CL….good good to see you again. Guess what we are talking about……..

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Evening all – glenn!!! Murph!!! TW!!! Ad!!! The convict is going DOWN.

choicelady

an hour ago

Murph – the best day in 8 years?

choicelady

an hour ago

Murph – That is a bogus claim, the time a jury takes to come to a decision is never a cause for overturning a decision.

AdLiban hour ago

TW, I agree. The Scotus we have now is just a mess. I mean really how long does it take to decide whether president has immunity or not? And yet you can bet if the question of this verdict comes before them, they are all very quickly in the convicted felon

glenn

an hour ago

Cl…objectively yes, but subjectively….I. am dubious.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

felon’s favor. That’s what I think anyway.

glenn

an hour ago

If Trump appeals it goes before the Appeals court with five Black female justices, now that is what I call righteous retribution.

twilson117

an hour ago

glenn – I think IF – a big IF – the SCOTUS folks are taking care, they are looking where any president MIGHT have immunity and where NO president does. That would take time. IF that is what they are doing.

choicelady

an hour ago

In fact, nearly all the pundits including experienced trial lawyers, estimated a decision that day or Friday at the latest. Don’t let the MAGA propaganda get to you.

AdLiban hour ago

Hey CL! How are you doing tonight?

glenn

an hour ago

TW…but that appeal could be appealed to…..yep, the clown show that is SCOTUS….at least that is what I am reading.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Michelle Obama’s mother passed today.

twilson117

an hour ago

TW yes I agree that is righteous retribution. But if they roll against him he’ll just keep appealing until he gets to the Scotus. But it would be nice to see them roll against him.

glenn

an hour ago

I am not looking at polls on voting since the conviction because earlier polls had over 70% of voters saying they would NOT vote for someone convicted of a felony. Polls mean NOTHING these days.

choicelady

an hour ago

glenn – I’m OK. How are YOU?

choicelady

an hour ago

TW….I met Mrs. Robinson in SC during the primary contest…what a class act.
