Today's News (2020/5/7): Consolidation of Power and Corruption of Justice edition

Consolidating power and corruption of justice edition, no COVID-19 here.

Dropping a case against a man who has already pled guilty is a real "fuck you" in the face of everyone not part of the cabal, and straight-up pissing in the face of Lady Justice.

Also, the Adam Schiff article and statement are long and important, as are the materials linked to within the story. They colluded. Trump said he'd do it again. They tried it again, in Ukraine. He'll try it yet again, only this time, without even the pretence of a Department of Justice, and knowing that the Republican Party will back him to and past the limit.

Barring a COVID-19 death, this only get worse, kids. Sorry.

COVID-19 edition is next.

  1. Trump Taps Point Man to Remove Pentagon Officials Seen as Disloyal
  2. Justice Department Is Dropping Flynn's Trump-Russia Case

In electrical news

"That's what we like to see" is what like to hear from electrical inspectors. Work approved, final inspection managed, permits down, server rack is on the new circuit, everything is delightful and working.

Now I open a second permit for the part of the circuit I wasn't able to finish because reasons. (It'll be a separate circuit now.)
