One of the more troubling aspects that we've seen in the past few years is that, despite SOPA failing to pass in Congress, thanks to widespread public outcry, various copyright interests have continued to look for ways to push forward ways to implement…
Trump insurrectionist files hilarious court document in effort to replace 2 of 3 branches of government
An attorney in Texas who lost his job as associate general counsel of an insurance company after traveling to Washington for the "Stop the Steal" really that immediately preceded Trump's insurrection has filed a new document as he continues his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results.

Paul M. Davis was visited by the FBI about his role in the January 6th insurrection.
"Ever since footage of him outside of the U.S. Capitol went viral on the day of the Jan. 6th siege, Texas-based lawyer Paul M. Davis has embarked upon a self-styled quest of J.R.R. Tolkien-esque proportions. Davis filed a federal lawsuit asking nothing less than the wholesale replacement of two branches of the U.S. federal government. He said the FBI visited his home to ask him for his statement, and a federal judge referred him to the Disciplinary Committee for the Western District of Texas," Law & Crime reported in February.
Reuters reporter Brad Heath posted a thread to Twitter breaking down the latest court filing in the case:

Attorney Mike Dunford also offered his analysis:
Paul, Paul, Paul.
You have filed this complaint demanding that the US be placed in a Stewardship pending new elections. It's already 5 months after the Inauguration and you want ANOTHER THREE MONTHS? And then you'll file a motion to amend?
You have erred really quite badly. pic.twitter.com/KwbnXuflKj

Giuliani 'doesn't have much defense' and will only ever see courtrooms again 'as a defendant': GOP lawyer
On Thursday, conservative attorney and Lincoln Project co-founder George Conway elaborated on his comments earlier in the day about Rudy Giuliani having his New York law license suspended — and suggested that, despite Giuliani's boasts that he will have the suspension dismissed quickly, the former mayor and Trump ally has little hope of ever practicing again.
"Should anyone be surprised this happened?" asked anchor Anderson Cooper.
"No, not at all," said Conway. "Because this was a story about completely relentless, representative, incessant, intentional lying, and we all saw it unfold in real time and the court recorded in its opinion saying this, under the disciplinary rules, under the rules of professional conduct is impermissible. We can't have lawyers lying in their representation of clients, and the court found that Giuliani has done both."
"I have to say, based on what I saw in this opinion, even though this is only an interim ruling and interim suspension, it's pretty clear that Giuliani doesn't have much of a defense," continued Conway. "He's entitled to a hearing, but unless he comes up with something, and I don't think he will, we're never — he's never going to see the inside of a courtroom again, other than as a defendant."
"You really believe he'll be disbarred?" asked Cooper.
"Or he'll at least receive a suspension that's long enough that given his advanced age, he's not going to be practicing again," said Conway. "And I don't know, frankly, who would ever retain him, given his record."

Fox News personality Sean Hannity on Thursday panicked over a tweet that had been retweeted 14 times and received 58 likes.
The tweet was simply a retweet with two "eye" emojis. The initial tweet came from NBC News senior media reporter Dylan Byers, who tweeted a screenshot from Pop B*tch, which has been sendling out a weekly gossip email for over two decades.
"The New York Times ran a column this week about how Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson – who made his name railing against the mainstream media, calling them "animals… not worthy of respect" – is actually a massive gossip and a regular anonymous source for many media stories about Trump, Fox and even himself. Keen to protect his colleague's honour, Sean Hannity rushed to attack the piece on air, trashing the NYT in time-honoured Fox News fashion. But Hannity might not have been quite so quick to jump to his defence if he knew how Tucker spoke about him in those off-the-record gossip sessions," the site noted. "Any brothers-in-arms, comrades-in-crusade spirit between the two appears to only flow one way. Turns out one of Tucker's favourite topics to chuckle about with his MSM mates is how much of a cringing Trump sycophant Sean is."
Hannnity freaked out about the tweet on Thursday.
