    BREAKING: For 100 years SCOTUS has ruled that there is no double jeopardy in being charged with the same crime by Federal prosecutors and State prosecutors. Today, they have suddenly decided to take a case challenging that. SCOTUS has no intention of protecting anyone but Trump. https://twitter.com/WilDonnelly/status/1012335714938376193?s=17

    It seems to be a well orchestrated plan to get complete power with the help of Russia and to load the SC with enough judges that will excuse the crimes. Also remember Trump made a comment awhile back thinking another leader had the right idea of changing their laws to enable the leader of serving longer than previously allowed.

    Scott Pruitt Personally Involved in ‘Ratf*cking’ Ex-Aides Who He Feels Betrayed Him

    Pruitt Sought Revenge on Ex-Aides
    June 29, 2018 at 8:54 am EDT

    On May 18, a top aide to EPA chief Scott Pruitt testified to a congressional committee that she had been tasked with procuring her boss a used mattress from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. Just days after news of that testimony broke, the aide, Pruitt’s now former director of scheduling Millan Hupp, submitted her resignation.

    But even though Hupp was gone from the agency, Pruitt wasn’t done with her.

    According to three sources familiar with the conversations, Pruitt was livid over Hupp’s testimony, which he felt had been particularly humiliating. And he personally reached out to allies in the conservative movement, including some at the influential legal group the Federalist Society, to insist that she had lied about, or at least misunderstood, the request for a used Trump mattress. He also stressed that Hupp could not be trusted—the implication being that she should not be hired at their institutions.

    Just got back from Hawaii last night. Had a great vacation but no real rest from the horrible news about Trump’s latest this and that and now Anthony Kennedy’s son involved as the likely reason for his early/unexpected retirement. I don’t even know how those people on SCOTUS, screwing up peoples’ lives, ever can look in the mirror. I keep waiting for a Scrooge moment, but it never comes. I feel really overwhelmed today but maybe it’s because of jetlag. It’s good to be back on the Obama Diary, though.

    Former President Obama on Thursday said that he told President Trump just to rename ObamaCare and take credit for it, instead of repealing it.

    …Obama also commented on upcoming elections while speaking at the event. “Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving that somehow, ‘OK, I’ll get off my couch after all and go spend the 15-20 minutes it takes for me to vote,’” Obama said. … hill.cm/UwpUOgH

    … Former Vice President Joe Biden is urging Americans to “rise up” to demand President Donald Trump nominate a “consensus candidate” to the Supreme Court. Biden sided with Democrats who have said the Senate should postpone the confirmation process until after the mid-term elections. He said, “so many of our fundamental rights, freedoms, and liberties — and the rule of law — are all at risk.” …

      Russian involvement in Finnish election:
      “In October 2017, the Security Committee of the Finnish Ministry of Defence released an assessment on the possibilities of Russian involvement in the presidential election. The assessment addressed nine possible scenarios, ranging from spreading false information through social media to a political assassination. The Security Committee also suggested ten possible objectives for Russian involvement, including obstructing discussion on NATO and isolating Finland from the European Union.”
      Oh. Quelle surprise.

      Too many of the liberal media protected these people, calling them “lone wolves” instead of being ginned up hate by the right wing media like Glenn Beck, Rush Limpballs, Bill O-the-clown, Hannity and the KKK/alt-right. When PBO was critical of Fox news and said it wasn’t real news…all the media came down on him, protecting fox news. I don’t feel sorry for none of them. They built this too by wanting to make money on our elections because they wanted a “horse race”, sell more newspapers, ads, etc.

      In 2016 the Obama Administration ended the solitary confinement of minors – but the sadistic torture continues.
      Reported today: 16 and 17 year olds are kept in solitary confinement in Palm Beach County Florida jail for 23 or 24 hours a day in
      a locked cement cell deprived of sight and sound (plexiglass windows you can’t see through) sometimes for weeks or months; denied contact, education and mental health treatment. “Guards leave bright emergency lights on to keep the teenagers awake and force them to drink foul-smelling water from the sink as a form of punishment when children protest their confinement by banging on doors or yelling for help”. Even as the U.N. has declared confinement beyond 15 days a form of torture: Michigan, Texas, Iowa, Kansas, Wyoming, Georgia and Alabama “have virtually no restrictions on the solitary confinement of children at all”.
