For the first time in recorded history, a span of more than 1.1 million days if one were to go back to 1000 BCE, straight white men may not be able to speak freely, if former “News Radio” actor and podcaster Joe Rogan is to be believed. Rogan, a straight white man who received $100 million dollars to speak freely despite having dangerous opinions on a number of subjects, recently inveighed about how tough it is out there with all the cancel culture and woke mobs and what have you they have these days. In a wild diatribe about something on the latest episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Rogan...
Appearing on MSNBC with host Alex Witt, the former daughter-in-law of Trump Org CFO Allen Weisselberg said she is sure the embattled executive is holding off flipping on Donald Trump as part of a Manhattan DA criminal investigation as a delaying tactic.
Using a report that a Manhattan grand jury is already hearing evidence presented against the former president over financial shenanigans within his company as a jumping-off point, Jennifer Weisselberg was asked about the status of the case and -- after refusing to say whether she has appeared before the grand jury -- explained why she thinks it is taking so long.
Stating her former father-in-law has "... always been blindly loyal to Donald," she added, "I also think it's about control. Allen is a control freak. I think once things start to get messy, and people are flipping or flopping, that scares him. So he's just going to stay due diligent and stay the course and keep going to work and hold out."
"You have to sort of try to wonder, be it that description you have given of him, but might he be trying to drag out this process?" host Witt asked. "Maybe with some sort of a hope for a change in political winds, hoping that this would blow over, or at least until [Manhattan DA] Cy Vance leaves office in December. The indication is Cy Vance presumably would file charges before he leaves office -- so you think he's trying to run out the clock?"
"Absolutely, good point, Alex," the MSNBC guest replied. "Absolutely. The same thing he's doing in my [civil] case. It's one of their litigation tactics. They talk about it endlessly in books, and he was given that advice; just wait for -- to outlitigate someone. To run the clock out, to find that new angle. Absolutely."

NBC host Chuck Todd on Sunday disputed Republican strategist Brad Todd after he claimed that outrage over critical race theory is a grassroots uprising among parents.
"You mention critical race theory," Brad Todd said. "This is a parent-led backlash at the grassroots level."
"It's manufactured," Chuck Todd interrupted. "And seems to sort have been lit. The fire was lit."
"I disagree," the GOP strategist argued. "I think it started because parents have had it with the education bureaucracy after COVID, they're fed up with it. They tend to trust Democrats when it comes to education funding but they trust Republicans on education accountability."
"I think what the backlash you're seeing on critical race theory in schools is another example of parents trying to hold educators accountable," he added.
But Democratic pollster Cornell Belcher countered by calling critical race theory a "tool" of Republican ideologues.
"It's coordinated, it's aggressive, it's intentional," Belcher explained. "This is part of the tribalism play. The critical race theory is yet another tool in the racial tribal boogeyman's toolbox to drive and inflame tribalism, which Republicans think helps them in elections."
"This is Trump 2.0, this is a continuation of this," he pointed out. "Critical race theory is sort of an arcane sort of ideal. Why is it front and center right now? The same reason that Mitch McConnell attacked Stacey Abrams when she came out for the voting bill. It is racial, it is tribalism. We've seen it grow under Trump and this is part and partial of it and they think this helps ignites their base."
Belcher concluded: "This is not grassroots and, Brad, you know this is organized and is being paid for."

Donald Trump found himself incapable of sending out a simple "Happy Father's Day " message on Sunday morning, instead opting to issue a statement mentioning the holiday and then calling his critics "Losers."
In a statement, the former president, who suffered a humiliating loss to now-President Joe Biden, wrote: "Happy Father's Day to all, including the Radical Left, RINOs, and other Losers of the world. Hopefully, eventually, everyone will come together!"
Based upon responses, the ex-president won't be getting his Father's Day wish of coming together soon.
