What part of petition the government for a redress of grievances would be a criminal act?

Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court justice, pressed Ariz. lawmakers to help reverse Trump’s loss, emails show


Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the conservative activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, pressed Arizona lawmakers after the 2020 election to set aside Joe Biden’s popular-vote victory and choose “a clean slate of Electors,” according to emails obtained by The Washington Post.
…

The messages show that Thomas, a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, was more deeply involved in the effort to overturn Biden’s win than has been previously reported. In sending the emails, Thomas played a role in the extraordinary scheme to keep Trump in office by substituting the will of legislatures for the will of voters.

I honestly don't know.  Oz is a clown, but his name recognition might help him.  He'll be running against Fetterman, who I think wins regardless of whom he is up against.  He's got that "middle-PA" street cred that's going to be hard for OZ or Mr. Hedge fund to overcome.  Look at how Fetterman crushed Conner Lamb....it should have been closer.  Honestly...I think Fetterman will help the Dems on the Governor's side too.  He's a huge (both figuratively and literally) asset between Philly and Pittsburgh.   Now, he just needs to stay healthy.

Fiona Hill says Putin got 'frustrated many times' with Trump because the Russian leader 'had to keep explaining things' to him

 
 

Russian President Vladimir Putin often became frustrated with President Donald Trump over his lack of knowledge on geopolitical issues, Fiona Hill said, adding that this played into Moscow's decision on the timing of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

One of the reasons Putin invaded Ukraine with President Joe Biden in the White House was that he expected the US to "sue for peace" and thought it would be better to deal with Biden than trying to negotiate with someone like Trump, whom the Russian leader had "to explain everything to all the time," Hill, who served as the top Russia advisor on the National Security Council under Trump, said Tuesday at a Chicago Council on Global Affairs event.

"He thought that somebody like Biden — who's a transatlanticist, who knows all about NATO, who actually knows where Ukraine is, and actually knows something about the history, and is very steeped in international affairs — would be the right person to engage with," Hill said.

"You could see that he got frustrated many times with President Trump because he had to keep explaining things, and Putin doesn't like to do that," Hill said, adding: "Even though he loves to be able to spin his own version of events, he wants to have predictability in the person that he's engaging with."

A number of Trump's former advisors have said the ex-president had a poor grasp of global affairs. The former national security advisor John Bolton, for example, said Trump once asked whether Finland was part of Russia.

Similarly, Trump's former White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly also once said Trump "doesn't know any history at all, even some of the basics on the US," says Hill's new book, "There Is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the Twenty-First Century," which was published last year.

In the book, Hill writes that Trump's meager comprehension of international affairs was a "major liability" for US national security.

"Whenever he got to meetings and the conversation started, it seemed like the first time he was hearing things from world leaders," she writes.

Trump did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Would love to check out TX sometime. I get there impression that there are many distinct regions and cultures. A complex place.

Almost 5 years ago, I interviewed for a job in NYC (3 times)...and the offer letter came through with a move to San Antonio (the HQ). 

I took the job and commuted for about 15 months...it wasn't a good fit, so the move never happened.

The wife visited a few times when I stayed for multiple weeks, and we got to see some of the surrounding areas...hill country, Austin, San Antonio.   It's a really interesting place.  The people are great, the food is great, and the overall quality of life seems pretty high.  I love driving...so the distances between things don't really bother me...but it's BIG.  

Politics are to be avoided.   Opinions from my co-workers were hard and fast.  Attempting to extract why they support most things is futile...it is what it is, and they don't really wanna talk about it.  I was there for the Beto vs. Ted 2018 Senate race, and it was really interesting to see in person.

Regarding LBJ...we went to his ranch, which is now a national park.  It was a lot better than I expected. Near Austin, maybe the best brewery experience we've had is at Jester King in the hills outside of town.  Very cool place.

Houston and Dallas are (IMO) a bit too Urban vs elsewhere.  Austin and San Antonio have grown like crazy, but they still feel "smaller".   The weather in the evenings is great, and you can find places like this:  The filling station and The friendly spot to hang out, within a mile of the more touristy Riverwalk. 

Texas is definitely worth a visit...

Have you read any of Caro's LBJ books? Caro can be a bit heavy-handed in his good-vs-evil depictions but he's an amazing researcher and great writer. 



Haven't read Caro, but I'm familiar with his work.  I'll have to check it out.

A very BIG place, too. Pine forests and swamps in the east to bone-dry desert in the west.

Well, it's the Hill Country - hilly terrain is typically not optimal for farming (at least not around here - which is about 70 miles due west of LBJ's birthplace). Caliche (the sedimentary soil that is present in much of Texas and is why cellars are rarely found in the state) makes any kind of digging, especially for planting, an enormous effort that may or may not reward the digger.  On the other hand, LBJ's backyard is the go-to place for Texas peaches.  And yes to the flash flooding (also a regular issue in much of Texas). Point being there's a hell of a lot more at play than simply weather.

I stand corrected. I was going off of my memory of Robert Caro's first book on LBJ, which described the region's thin layer of topsoil on top of hardpan. That made farming quite difficult.

I noodled around in response to your post and it seems the area has about the same rainfall as the US average. The Wikipedia entry on the Hill Country had this to say, though:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wik...

"The terrain throughout the region is characterized by a thin layer of topsoil and many exposed rocks and boulders, making the region very dry and prone to flash flooding."
