Trump Acquaintances Grow Nervous After Rudy’s Raid

Is there more trouble coming over the horizon?

Rudy Giuliani

In the middle of last week, a shocking development bursted forth from the Department of Justice, and the reverberations of that extraordinary event are beginning to make some folks quite nervous.

On Wednesday, former Trump lawyer and former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani saw both his office and home raided by federal agents in The Big Apple.  The warrant allowed these investigators to take possession of a number of records and electronic devices belonging to Rudy, with the declared consent of the warrant having to do with Giuliani’s dealings within Ukraine.

But this hasn’t stopped others from within Trump’s inner circle from being a bit nervous about what’s to come.

“This was a show of force that sent a strong message to a lot of people in Trump’s world that other things may be coming down the pipeline,” an advisor to the former president, who wished to stay anonymous, told CNN.

The advisor also described the Giuliani raid as “overkill” and said the raid was a worrying sign that investigators were more willing to pursue investigations than previously thought.

“I can’t for the life of me think why you would need to send seven FBI agents to go and collect a cellphone and laptop,” the advisor said.

Two other people close to Trump echoed these sentiments, according to CNN, but declined to be quoted.

Trump himself is under investigation via the Manhattan DA’s office for issues surrounding the Trump Organization, with prosecutors in that case having recently acquired several years’ worth of the former President’s tax returns – a feat that took years of litigious stubbornness.

Ohio Now Offering Lottery-Like Jackpots to Promote Vaccinations

Ohio’s vaccination push has become a gameshow, apparently.

Vaccine hesitation has been one of the most worrisome parts of the coronavirus pandemic of late, especially as we approach the next critical stage in our economic recovery. You see, in America, there is a very real feeling that the government should not be able to mandate what it is that we decide to do with our bodies, and, more importantly, what we decide to put into  our bodies.  This is about personal sovereignty, and rightly so.  After all, this is the land of the free. That’s why the government has long avoided mandating vaccinations for the COVID-19 pandemic – it simply wouldn’t work, in all honesty, and there would be a massive revolt if they did choose to go down that path. So, instead, officials are trying to entice citizens to be inoculated either by making the unvaccinated into second-class citizens, or by luring them in with cash and prizes like some two-bit gameshow. Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine has come up with an unorthodox incentive for Ohioans to get vaccinated. Starting next Wednesday, adults who have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and are at least 18 years old, may enter a lottery that will provide a $1 million prize each Wednesday for five weeks. DeWine, a Republican, said the pool of names for the drawing will come from the Ohio Secretary of State’s publicly available voter registration database. Those who are not in the database can sign up for the drawings on a separate webpage, DeWine said. In random drawings, the state will also provide five full four-year scholarships to an Ohio public university—including tuition, room-and-board, and books—to Ohioans under the age of 18 who have been vaccinated. The Ohio Lottery will conduct the drawings, and the money will come from existing federal pandemic relief dollars, DeWine…

Biden Again Admits That He’s ‘Not Supposed To’ Interact with Reporters

This is some way of governing the public…

What a strange new world the American political machine exists in these days. It was only six months ago that we had a President who, for lack of a nicer way to put it, wouldn’t stop yapping.  Donald Trump was an extraordinary communicator, using Twitter almost reflexively throughout his time in the White House, and sparring with reporters any chance he got.  You could tell that he lived for this, and it was a refreshing and brutally honest way of governing. Now we have “Sleepy Joe” Biden, who very literally believes that he’s not supposed to talk to the public off-script. President Joe Biden expressed concerns after he answered questions from reporters Wednesday, as he and his administration struggle to address multiple crises around the world. Biden answered questions about the gas shortage and a question about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in the Middle East, before moving to exit the room. When reporters shouted additional questions, Biden paused and replied, “You guys are bad. I’m not supposed to be answering all these questions. I’m supposed to leave. But I can’t resist your questions.” The president then took an additional question about his meeting with Congressional leaders on infrastructure. And this is far from the first time that this has happened… Biden has repeatedly told reporters he would be “in trouble” for taking questions from reporters at White House events — even though he has only held one press conference since becoming president. “Look, I’m sorry. I’m going to — this is the last question I’ll take,” Biden said in April after taking questions from reporters. “I’m really going to be in trouble.” Biden also repeatedly said he would “get in trouble” during a CNN town hall in February. “I’m going to get in trouble,” he lamented to CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “I was supposed to…
