A week or so ago the 11th Circuit Appellate Court overrode Judge Cannon’s ruling that the FBI couldn’t continue with their investigation until Trump’s special master (no not Putin, the other one) reviewed the stolen documents.
Then Cannon overrode the higher court’s overruling, which…I don’t think that’s how that works.
There doesn’t to be any update on Cannon’s verdict, but it might be a moot point as Trump has appealed the documents to the SCOTUS… specifically asking for Clarence Thomas, traitor, to be the one to rule on it.
I don’t know if this means Clarence Thomas, traitor, will get to be the sole judge ruling on a case that would also indirectly implicate his traitorous wife or if the entire court will have to rule on it.

Female high school athletes in Florida are apparently being asked to confirm their last periods before being allowed to play, in order to verify their gender.
How are male high school athletes being asked to verify their gender?

Lmao.

@Dustcan
Has there ever been a time before in American history where a past president tried to claim they retained authority over a new executive branch?
From claiming he still has “executive privilege” to referring to Federal assets as his own property, it’s like the Tangerine Palpatine thinks he literally is the Executive Branch til death or something.
The concept of the executive branch being denied access to the executive branch’s property as Justice Conan has done is just gobsmackingly stupid.

Females are usually allowed to play on the male teams so it would be pointless. Female sports are more restrictive because they’re basically the lower weight class and no one cares if a female wants to make it harder on herself. Perhaps the solution should be to split up sports by three or so fitness levels rather than gender. Then everyone can be on as close as possible playing field without invasive checks.

It’s stuff that always makes me feel like I was born on the wrong planet or something.
But, yeah, why they don’t just split everything by weight class or something is so confusing.
It’s like we keep doing stupid stuff because it’s what boomers did.

They only show up when there’s good news for Russian nationalists. See how they came by when Putin pulled a sudetenland on Friday night, and immediate vanished after Russian forces were slaughtered and routed the very next day in Liman.
He’s probably furiously scrolling through telegram channels or VK for news that contradicts the utter humiliation RU forces are facing in Jerson now, and collecting the talking points about “tactical retreat to more defensible positions” or “allowing the enemy to enter a killbox of our choosing” to spout out. That or using a VPN to research the best ways to get out of Russia before the “partial mobilization” includes him, as well.

@The Smiling Pony
I’ve argued with him before I can confirm that’s EXACTLY what he’s doing. Guy thinks the defeat at the north was a “goodwill gesture” and capturing the capital was “unnecessary” in a war to make the opponent bend to your political whims.
He can’t be helped.

Ignoring logistical trouble with narrow enough weight classes in many contexts (e.g. amateur sports teams in school context) men are still likely to have an advantage in the vast majority (not all) of sports at the exact same weight (due to be slightly taller at the same weight on average, having a bit more muscle at the same weight on average, etc.), it wouldn’t be overwhelming but you definitely would see significantly less women at the top places than among the contenders in general.
Plus women’s sports is A Thing, it was one of those “their own spaces” ideologically. Asking to abolish them is not going to be seen as well-intentioned, no matter how you slice it.
Sadly torture was endemic to the power structures of the “people’s republics” all eight years. It (or threat of it) was just part of the business there. No reason for things to change with Russia formally assuming control it had anyway in reality.
As far as Russian “patriots” - some people cannot be changed. There was infamous example where safely middle-class nationalist went to Donbass in 2014 with an aim of helping (financially even), was arrested, accused of being Ukrainian spy, tortured, ransomed back to Russia, and have seen no problem with how things transpired. People were joking about his masochistic tendencies but realistically speaking he just convinced himself that he is a part of something so much bigger that he is ok with being a “statistical mistake”.

I’ve decided I’m going to stay out of this forum for a while. I’ve caused way too much heartache and broken discourse on here and I don’t want to make it worse.
It’s not because I’m “insane” or “unwell”. I have such an unescapably bleak view on humanity that I felt anyone living in a current or former imperial power (especially those with a record of some of the worst crimes against humanity) who’s proud of their nationality in any way (Russia and America included) as less than a person, incapable of thinking for themselves. Looking back, I was wrong. It makes me want to vomit looking at the tweet. I should never have tweeted that out, and I wish I could take it back.
I’m sorry if I caused pain to you or anyone else on here.
I’m out.

That is what being unwell means. You need to seek a good psychologist to sort this stuff out. Letting it fester won’t help you.

Please consult a professional. Unresolved, such feelings can become chronic.

men are still likely to have an advantage
Except for tennis, wrestling, bowling, racecar driving, gymnastics, rock-climbing, ultramarathon, etc, etc, etc.
We’re talking high school athletics. This isn’t professional sport.

I’ve been avoiding this place, because if i have to admit i’m wrong it better be worth it.
>I use vague and emotional language to cause other people distress because I’m angry.
>Using partial knowledge of dark psychology to project and anthropomorphize countries and power structures, that are physically incapable of acting like an individual human.
>Using anti-human rhetoric that can be used to justify racism and further propagate evil that I think i’m warning people about.
I’m a stupid internet troll nobody should take seriously. I have to remember even someone as small as an ant has responsibility. Politics is a huge social responsibility. The fact that another country will put my head on a block is not a bragging point.
I’m going to avoid a little more. Avoiding damage, not avoiding apologies. Even if a criticism about me is only partially true, now is a good time to just take it. I cannot desecrate nations and tribes, without acknowledging they’re where my blood and fervor come from.

Maybe we should all just unsubscribe. Then we can go do other stuff for the rest of our lives.
And, better yet - when the really rabid bad actors come back they’ll find nothing here.

No one.

Just a vast wasteland of “No One Cares”, with a TV showing a blank screen.
Maybe they’ll think the apocalypse happened and they’ll lock the doors on their fallout shelter and never show their faces again.
Maybe they’ll go out and pick up a hammer and build habitats for humanity.
Let’s do it as an early April Fool’s joke against those whose lives are so dependent on this thread existing. Or do it for ourselves as an early ‘Giving up shit in my life’ for Lent.

I’ll start.

urge to lock thread and walk away rising …

This thread is my main source for updates on politics and the invasion on Ukraine, so I would enjoy it if it wasn’t locked yet.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is simply a repeat of the USA’s invasion of Afghanistan: a bloody stalemate which will drag on with no real progress.
The ONLY difference is that the international community didn’t boycott and place sanctions on the USA like they should have.
