FTFA: "The Manhattan district attorney's office has hired a former senior Justice Department official to join the office's criminal probe into former president Donald Trump.

The new hire is another sign that District Attorney Alvin Bragg is taking decisive action to kickstart the inquiry that had previously seemed stalled out. What exactly has prompted the rejuvenation of the DA's investigation remains unclear.
"

Trump's dinner with Nazis. Those in the office that were his political allies have switched to DeSantis and now are looking for ways to take Trump out of the picture.

Oh my gosh! I can't believe the timing! Right when the GOP have all decided to turn their backs on Trump! It's almost like one was somehow connected to the other!

Considering TFG openly discusses crimes as he's commiting them I am not exactly certain on the delay.

But things appeared to heat up last month after the New York Times reported that Bragg was reexamining hush money payments paid to adult film star and Trump's (alleged) former mistress Stormy Daniels.

Trump seems to be starring in the biggest soap opera ever created. Every day is a cliffhanger, and the next day that's forgotten as a new drama unfolds, leading up to another cliffhanger... That no one ever falls from.
How strange.

If they criminally investigated him and backed-off from charging TFG, they already took a shiat-load of heat about that.

For me, that means, they wouldn't re-open this shiat unless the already had intention to prosecute.  DNRTFA but if they announce the criminal investigation is re-opened, I'm convinced they will indict Trump.

Last week someone used the word "sodastream" in conversation with me. It was a first. Some cousin bought her kids a sodastream.

Before then, I had no idea anyone actually owned one. I thought they were like Dr. Ho's Pain Relief Footbath - tv stations full of commercials, but magically nobody has seen one for real.

And now this. A Fark headline. Sodastream has gone Boomer-mainstream. Now I guess all we need is for people to start using it to fill Dr Ho's Footbath with Schweppe's and life will imitate Boomer tv commercials once again, as is the way of the world.

Sure, when it's the hero or heroine dangling from the cliff, they get saved or save themselves.
When it's some asshole wearing a black-hat, not so much.

This week they had a Sodastream on sale on the seasonal gift rack at Kroger, and I felt almost compelled to get one for some reason. I did not get one, yet the urge was there. That along with your cousin and the Fark headline, it cannot be ignored. The Sodastream deep state is secretly inundating us with subliminal Sodastream propaganda.

Keep fighting that urge. Received one as a gift several years ago and it was a piece of junk that produced cheesy plastic bubbles of fizzy sugar water using expensive proprietary pods like a Keurig machine. It was a leaky, unnecessary mess that I assumed cost about 30 bucks. Once I found out the damn things were $80+ I packed that bastard up and returned it.

Nonsense. Everything involving President Donald Trump is always 100% authentic and serious. He and his accomplices / business partners would never fake a conflict scenario to trick a credulous audience of slack-jawed yokels into believing that it was real. It's simply not in his nature.
