>The former president is convinced state prosecutors will target him again after a second term, and wants the GOP to solve that problem for him


Donald Trump likes to tell anyone who will listen that he’s absolutely convinced he will win his 2024 rematch against President Joe Biden. And, according to people who’ve spoken to the ex-president about this, Trump also seems convinced that if he wins another four years in the White House, state prosecutors will still be waiting for him on the other side of his term — ready to put him on trial, or even in prison, just as they are now.

To avoid such risks, the former and perhaps future president of the United States wants Congress to create a very specific insurance policy that would help keep him out of prison forever, two sources familiar with the matter tell Rolling Stone. Trump vaguely alluded to this idea last week outside his New York criminal hush money trial, when he said he has urged Republican lawmakers to pass “laws to stop things like this.”

In recent months, the sources say, Trump has spoken to several GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill, attorneys, and other associates about the possibility of Republicans passing legislation in a second Trump term that would shield former presidents (i.e. Trump) from non-federal prosecutions. In recent conversations with closely-aligned lawmakers, Trump has pressured them to do so, describing it as imperative that he signs such a bill into law, if he again ascends to the Oval Office.

This, of course, would require that Republicans keep the House, take back the Senate, and have enough votes and agreement on the wisdom of these ideas to get it done.

“Even after a second term, he doesn’t think any of this is going to end,” says one of the sources. “He doesn’t think Democrats are going to quit coming after him.”

Lmao. Miss your meds?
Good post
How does calling the GOP "center left" make me "farther right" than them? The GOP is far from being "far right."
You haven't spoken a single fact yet, you fucking idiot.
I'm a little stupid here, but I am curious why most people say this. The vast majority of polls right now show Trump having a fairly good edge over Biden. Now, my understanding of reading elections doesn't really go much further than this. I am curious why a Trump losing narrative seems to be fairly popular around here.
Because you're on /news/, a board where one significantly schizophrenic mentally ill leftist resides.

Authoritarianism expert Ruth Ben-Ghiat explained the impact that the booing of Donald Trump during his speech at Saturday’s Libertarian Party National Convention may have on the former president.

On Sunday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Weekend,” Ben-Ghiat said the relentless jeering of the presumptive GOP nominee was “so interesting” given how he’s been stuck in a New York courtroom amid his ongoing hush money trial and likely feels “he has to be everywhere and he actually needs those cheers for his ego all the more.”

Trump may have known he would be booed during his address to the Libertarian Party audience, acknowledged the New York University history professor and author of “Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present.”

“But the booing is also a kind of lethal blow to the kind of ego that the strongman has because the secret of the strongman is that they are very weak and they are very brittle,” she added. “And so, right now, I think he’s going everywhere because he’s desperate for attention that is not him falling asleep in the courtroom.”

Earlier this year, Ben-Ghiat said “autocrats are fragile and insecure creatures” who use ritual humiliation to stay ahead of their rivals.

The professor has previously warned Trump will never leave office should he win back the White House in November’s election and has described the GOP as an “an autocratic party operating in a democracy.”

Family of man who died after being deported blame Home Office delays

The family of a man who died abroad after being wrongly deported by the UK Home Office have blamed the department for causing delays that stopped him being reunited with his children.

Sudharsan Ithayachandran, 41, was deported from the UK to Sri Lanka on 24 December 2019 – his wedding anniversary – after admitting to working illegally at Tesco and using false documents.

He left behind his devastated wife, Subatra Sudharsan, 41, who is profoundly deaf, his son Priyan, nine, and daughter Priyanka, eight. All three are British citizens. His mother-in-law, Yasadora Nagendra, 60, whom he cared for, described him as “the pillar of the family”.

In an immigration tribunal ruling in November 2023, Judge Bonavero accepted his appeal – arguing that he had a right to family life in the UK with his wife and children.

The Home Office did not appeal against the ruling but delayed making arrangements to process his visa to return to the UK for several months and he was forced to remain in dangerous conditions in Sri Lanka. The family is of Tamil heritage.

US isn’t ready for a war of great powers

The United States’ ability to deter its adversaries from attacking us and our closest allies and partners is at its lowest level since the end of the Cold War. China and Russia’s nuclear arsenals are growing unchecked, along with their ambitions, while America’s anemic response leaves it open to their coercion.

Despite the unambiguous and growing set of threats, the United States is failing to sustain its nuclear arsenal or prepare for the future. These failures will have grave consequences if not urgently addressed. President Joe Biden must make rebuilding the nation’s strategic nuclear deterrent a top priority.

A supposedly significant nuclear modernization process initiated by former President Barack Obama is currently underway. Unfortunately, that effort is not going well.
For example, the United States has not produced a new war reserve plutonium pit (a vital component necessary to create nuclear detonations) since 1989, and current efforts to restart the capability are years behind schedule. After not having built a new nuclear weapon or produced nuclear fissile material in almost three and a half decades, the U.S. must relearn how to enrich uranium for defense purposes.
At the same time, Taiwan seems even more likely to emerge as a third sphere of conflict in the next few years — or perhaps even sooner. And Beijing has been boosting its military at scale — the People’s Liberation Army Navy is already numerically greater than the U.S. Navy, while its land forces and nuclear forces are growing apace.

Meanwhile, regardless of how long the war in Ukraine lasts, Russia’s busy expanding its armor production — including the recovery of damaged equipment from the battlefield — while running a wartime production system at home. Moscow has shown it understands mass; and after a year and a half, the Russian army is now capable of fighting and mobilizing at the same time, with the goal of expanding its ranks to 1.5 million.
If the United States is unable to field a credible nuclear deterrent by the 2030s—when China will likely reach parity with the U.S. and when the current ICBM and submarine force will age out—it is possible that America’s enemies will become even more emboldened than they are now and believe that during an acute crisis they can escalate to the nuclear threshold while facing a hobbled and undersized American nuclear deterrent.

To ensure that our enterprise is on schedule and will remain viable for the next half century, one person is essential: the president of the United States. Only the commander in chief can infuse the nuclear enterprise with the sense of urgency needed to field a credible deterrent in the 2030s. To this end, the president should:

Make deterrent modernization a top national priority. The president must make the case that nuclear weapons are the ultimate guarantor of their freedom and prosperity. He must make it known that while the nuclear arsenal remains effective today, it is aging, and the country must reinvest in the arsenal in the face of expanding Russian and Chinese nuclear arsenals.
Deterrence in Europe and Asia requires permanent stationing — not the rotational presence that has been a stop-gap measure to avoid hard choices. If NATO is to survive as a viable alliance, deterrence and collective territorial defense in Europe must be the new focus.

Additionally, in Asia, bilateral security guarantees and regional efforts to stabilize the area need to be buttressed by U.S. and allied deployment. As we enter a period of protracted systemic instability, preserving these two regional balances from imploding into an all-out great power war will be the difference between peace and wider conflict, which could morph into a global conflagration.

The $320m Biden Pier was sabotaged by Israel for distributing aid and is now sinking into the sea after just 2 weeks of use
Is Joe Biden $320 Million Gaza Pier Sinking? What We Know

Afloating pier on the shores of the Gaza Strip, set up to provide a lifeline to the Palestinian territory, has faced a rocky start, with one report claiming that it was "sinking."

President Joe Biden announced the project in March to help transport supplies to the territory, which has been hit by Israel's bombardment, as it fights a war against Hamas prompted by the militant group's surprise October 7 attack on southern Israel.

Amid international calls for the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to allow more humanitarian assistance into the territory, aid groups have started using the pier to distribute aid, but use of the facility has not gone smoothly.

What Is the Gaza Floating Pier?
The construction of the floating pier and its causeway, or Trident section, anchored to the Gaza shore adjacent to the north of the Netzarim corridor, was completed May 10.

Two months earlier, Biden announced the pier with the hope of averting famine in northern Gaza by providing seaborne access for assistance, as calls grew for Israel to ease access for relief supplies into the territory via land routes.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Columnist and author Caroline Glick posted on X an image of the pier with the message: "The Biden pier in Gaza is sinking into the sea....($320m sinking along with it...)"

It is unclear whether the images were linked to an incident on Saturday in which four American vessels connected to the floating pier disconnected from the jetty due to stormy seas. U.S. Central Command, CENTCOM, said the vessels had broken free from their moorings, leading them to get stuck on the coast.

One ship was stuck on a beach at the southern end of Ashdod, while another sent to extract it also got beached. The two other vessels were washed up on a beach near the pier, according to CENTCOM, which added the Israeli Navy helped with their recovery and that no one had been injured in the incidents.

But other problems have beset the pier, with Sabrina Singh, deputy Pentagon press secretary, saying last month that bad sea and weather conditions had delayed the delivery of the components for the construction.

Meanwhile, Vice Admiral Brad Cooper, the deputy commander of United States Central Command, told reporters last week that deliveries from the pier to warehouses inside Gaza had been initially hindered by a Hamas drone attack on the IDF and some aid trucks were looted en route, CNN reported.

However, more than 500 metric tons of aid offloaded at the pier has been handed off to humanitarian partners, two-thirds of which is in the process of reaching those in need, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) said last week, according to CNN.

Newsweek has contacted USAID, CENTCOM and the Israeli foreign ministry for comment.


Pope Francis shocks bishops by allegedly saying gay men should not be admitted to church seminaries because 'there's already too much f*****ry'

Pope Francis has allegedly shocked bishops in Italy by using an offensive slur when saying that homosexual men should not be admitted to church seminaries because there is already 'too much' gay sexual activity.

The pontiff told a closed-door meeting at an episcopal conference at the Vatican that homosexual men should not be allowed into colleges to train for the priesthood, Italian media reports.

Bishops at the meeting were reportedly taken aback by the language the 87-year-old used to make the statement - the derogatory word 'frociaggine', which roughly translates to f*****ry.

Italian news agency Adnkronos, citing sources, reported that the Pope said in the speech: 'Look: there is already an air of f*****ry around that is not good. There is today's culture of homosexuality with respect to those who have a homosexual orientation [who] are better off not being accepted [into the seminary].'

The remark was met with 'incredulous laughter', bishops told newspaper Corriere della Sera. Some suggested that it was an honest mistake by the Pope, for whom Italian is a second language, and that he 'did not know' how offensive the word was.

The alleged comments, which seem to go against recent moves to amend seminary admission rules, have come as a surprise to some in the church as Francis is known for taking a more liberal view than his predecessors on LGBT rights.
I never thought these child rapists would do anything I agree with.

Why faggots are allowed to kid themselves on they're still good and can get into heaven anyway is beyond me.
>Catholicism operates under primacy of Peter doctrine
>believe Pope can directly speak to God and has final say on new rules from God
>Act surprised when he does this
Catholics are weird.

After nearly half a billion dollars in legal judgments against him this year, Donald Trump’s company opted to offload one of his private jets this month, public filings show. And the buyer is a Republican megadonor who poured nearly $250,000 into a political committee tied to Trump’s 2020 campaign.

The plane, a 1997 Cessna jet, is worth in the range of $10 million, according to evoJets, though terms of the transaction couldn’t be confirmed.

Federal Aviation Administration records show that on May 13, the aircraft’s registration changed from the Trump Organization’s DT Air Corp to a Texas entity called MM Fleet Holdings LLC. State records tie that company to Mehrdad Moayedi, an Iranian-American construction and development tycoon who lives near Dallas and runs Centurion American Custom Homes.

According to his biography, Moayedi founded his company in 1990 and has since built thousands of homes. Centurion says it partners with both public and private entities.

Moayedi is also a Trump donor. Federal campaign finance data show that in 2019 and 2020, he gave a combined $245,000 to Trump Victory—a committee that raised money for the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, and state GOP parties—sending the maximum allowable $5,600 contribution to the campaign.

Moayedi has also given hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of other GOP candidates and committees, including the RNC, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Nikki Haley. In 2022, the developer made a maximum primary donation of $2,900 to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, an Arizona independent who has raked in big bucks from the real estate industry and is accused by some Democrats of being overly accommodating to Republicans.

Business Insider previously reported that the plane had been sold, though the outlet did not include details about the buyer.

Trump has boasted about the Cessna on the Trump Aviation website, writing that the aircraft is a “very special feature within the Trump Aviation fleet.”

“This high speed jet is often referred to as a ‘rocket in the sky,’ flying at speeds up to Mach .92 and altitudes as high as 51,000 feet. It is one of the fastest in the world and allows for entry into smaller airports,” the site claims. The site further boasts that the craft is outfitted with “top of the line interiors” that can comfortably seat nine passengers, and that “the signature Trump Crest” on the exterior bestows “an even higher level of luxury and beauty to this magnificent aircraft.”

Moayedi could not immediately be reached for comment.
Does Biden have a jet?

An Idaho jury awarded a drag performer more than $1.1 million in damages on Friday after a far-right blogger defamed him and spread false claims that he exposed himself to children during a pride event.

Eric Posey, who performs under the drag name Mona Liza Million, sued blogger Summer Bushnell in 2022 after she posted a doctored video that showed Posey appearing in drag at the event in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The video included supposed footage of Posey dancing in drag with a blurred area around his waist.

“Why did no one arrest the man in a dress who flashed his genitalia to minors and people in the crowd?” Bushnell said in an earlier post. “No one said anything about it and there’s video. I’m going to put up a blurred video to prove it.”

The blurred footage sparked national outcry and was ultimately seen by thousands of people. In truth, the unedited video showed Posey performing in an outfit with a boa around his waist, with no inappropriate behavior. But Bushnell’s repeated posts about the performance sparked a police investigation and prompted city prosecutors to publicly state that Posey had not exposed himself to the crowd.

Posey told the jury during the trial that the episode became a flashpoint in the conservative war against LGBTQ+ Americans and drag performers, saying he received death threats and harassment as a result of Bushnell’s posts. The pride event at the center of the case became a lightning rod in that fight after 31 members of a white supremacist group were arrested nearby and later charged with conspiracy to riot at the event.
“Imagine being in a dark hole where you have nobody and you felt the whole world turn their back on you,” Posey said in court on Thursday, per the Coeur d’Alene/Post Falls Press. “But somehow, you were surrounded by warriors, true people of Idaho — not transplants, true people of this soil. I am fortunate to say I have people like that around me, people that lifted me up.”

The jury found Bushnell liable for damages, awarding Posey $926,000 in compensatory damages for defamation and $250,000 in punitive damages, as his attorneys had shown that Bushnell knew her statements were false but shared them anyway with reckless disregard for the truth.

Jurors had asked the judge if they could order Bushnell to take down her posts, but the judge said this was not possible. The videos were still on Bushnell’s page as of Friday, according to the Coeur d’Alene Press.

“I am so grateful that the jury was attentive, and that they rejected the lies that put me in a dark place for nearly two years,” Posey said after the verdict, according to The New York Times.

The North Idaho Pride Alliance, which put on the initial pride event that Bushnell’s post claimed to depict, championed the jury’s findings. The group said it was deeply appreciative of the “jury’s dedication and careful consideration of facts presented.”

“In light of recent events, our commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community in Northern Idaho is stronger than ever,” the group said in a statement. “We will persist in our efforts to provide resources, education, and advocacy, fostering a culture of acceptance and understanding.”
>Jurors had asked the judge if they could order Bushnell to take down her posts, but the judge said this was not possible.
Does this mean Eric can sue Bushnell again since as long as the posts are up, she's still defaming him?
Can't be charged for the same thing twice

During Tuesday's closing arguments in the Donald Trump hush-money trial, jurors are sure to hear a lot about the motives and credibility of key prosecution witnesses Michael Cohen, David Pecker, and Stormy Daniels.

But jurors may not need to believe these witnesses to convict Trump.

Here are 10 stand-alone pieces of evidence that practically speak for themselves.

>1. "So, what do we got to pay for this?"

"So, what do we got to pay for this? One-fifty?" Trump asks his attorney and "fixer," Cohen, just two months before the 2016 election. "Pay with cash," Trump then instructs.

Only if Trump is successful with his jury tampering and one of his supporters lied to the court to get on the jury.

But there is precedent of MAGA's stooping that low.

A freelance BBC weather presenter says she was kicked off a flight from London Gatwick to Turkey after asking passengers not to eat peanuts.

Georgie Palmer, 49, says she and her family were escorted off the SunExpress flight to Dalaman on 21 May, after making the request due to her daughter's allergy.

Posting on social media, she said the SunExpress crew ignored her requests to do an announcement to all passengers - so she instead spoke to people around her on the flight.

SunExpress said it takes the safety of passengers seriously, but said the airline refrains from making announcements like the one Ms Palmer requested as it "cannot guarantee an allergen-free environment".

Ms Palmer had boarded the flight with her husband Nick Sollom, 48, and daughters Rosie, 12, and Annie, 14.

She told the BBC the family asked for the crew to make an announcement for no one to consume peanuts because of Rosie's anaphylactic reaction them.

She posted on Instagram saying: "The SunExpress captain and cabin crew refused to make the standard announcement on behalf of our daughter.

you had one job, OP. One fucking job. The wife is named Georgie and she is the one who caused all the fuss.
So? Besides, makes sense it would be a woman. The guy is just as bad. Hell do anything she says cos he has no balls.
Idiots in the public education system started having school-wide bans on stuff like peanuts and other common allergens back when the odds for it were something like 1 in 10,000 because they were scared shitless of lawsuits. Since children by and large stopped being exposed to common allergens they never developed an immunity to them, so now the rates are something like 1 in 120.

Israel how now murdered Egyptian soldiers in Egypt. Israel sent military units across the Egyptian border and killed Egyptian soldiers who tried to stop them. Reportedly they were sending military units into Egypt to murder more Palestinians.
Netanyahitler stated "don't care. Fuck em. Let me tell you about the Holocaust and why we are the good guys"
Egyptian guard killed in shooting on Rafah border

A member of Egypt's security forces was killed in a shooting incident near the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip and an investigation is under way, Egypt's military spokesperson said in a statement on Monday.

Israel's military had earlier said it was investigating reports of an exchange of fire between Israeli and Egyptian soldiers.

"A few hours ago (Monday), a shooting incident occurred on the Egyptian border. The incident is under review and discussions are being held with the Egyptians," the Israeli military said in a statement.
Later on Monday, Egypt warned against compromising the security and safety of its security forces, a high-level source told Egypt's state-linked Al Qahera News, adding that Egypt would take necessary measures to prevent the incident from recurring.

An Egyptian soldier stationed on a watchtower had reacted to seeing an armoured vehicle carrying Israeli troops cross a boundary line near the border while the soldiers pursued and killed several Palestinians, two Egyptian security sources said.
The soldier opened fire and Israeli forces fired back, killing him, the sources said, sparking an exchange of gunfire between the two sides. Several Israeli soldiers were wounded and the force fell back, and one Egyptian was wounded, the sources said.

Donald Trump on Monday again denied rape and defamation claims against him by writer E. Jean Carroll, nabbing the attention of her lawyer.

In a post on Truth Social, the former president kicked off with ‘Happy Memorial Day to All,’ and quickly derailed into a tirade against Manhattan federal court Judge Lewis Kaplan and Carroll’s claims: “TWO separate trials awarded a woman, who I never met before(a quick handshake at a celebrity event, 25 years ago, doesn’t count!), 91 MILLION DOLLARS for “DEFAMATION.”

Kaplan presided over the case last year in which a jury found Trump liable for sexually abusing Carroll in a Manhattan department store in the 1990s. Kaplan later ruled in the civil defamation case in January that as president Trump defamed Carroll after she accused him in 2019 of rape. Carroll was awarded $83.3 million in damages, which Trump is appealing.

Carroll’s lawyer Roberta Kaplan swiftly responded to Trump’s post, “We have said several times since the last jury verdict in January that all options were on the table. And that remains true today—all options are on the table.”

The Biden campaign also responded to Trump’s post on Twitter and wrote, “Trump posts Memorial Day message with zero mention of fallen American service members, instead calling those who don’t support him ”‘Human Scum.’”

Kaplan has previously suggested that another defamation lawsuit could be in store after comments Trump made in an interview with CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

Kaplan said in a statement after the interview aired that, “The statute of limitations for defamation in the most jurisdictions is between one and three years.” Then continued, “As we said after the last jury verdict, we continue to monitor every statement that Donald Trump makes about our client, E. Jean Carroll.”

I almost feel sorry for the poor bastard. His ego is so large he can't help himself and the yes men around him can't get him to stop.
At the very least the Bill O'Reilly defense didn't work for him where because he's such a pathological liar, you can't prove malicious intent because he deludes himself into thinking its the truth.


WASHINGTON − Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas this week criticized a piece of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decisions that made racial segregation in schools illegal in arguing that courts should get out of the business of deciding if congressional maps discriminate against Black people.

His charge came just a week after the 70th anniversary of the landmark case.

Thomas said the Supreme Court took a “boundless view of equitable remedies” when it told schools in 1955 how they needed to comply with the initial 1954 decision.

That may have justified temporary measures to overcome the schools’ widespread resistance, Thomas wrote. But it’s not backed up by the Constitution or by the nation’s “history and tradition.”

Federal courts, he said, do not have “the flexible power to invent whatever new remedies may seem useful at the time.”

Thomas made that case in arguing that courts have no role in deciding if congressional maps have been unfairly drawn to discriminate against Black people.

The court’s conservative majority dismissed a challenge to a South Carolina district that a civil rights group said had been drawn to limit the influence of Black voters.

The Coalition to March on the Republican National Convention (RNC) is condemning efforts by RNC leaders to keep protests as far from the convention as possible. As first reported by Politico, GOP leaders issued a letter to the Secret Service arguing that allowing protests anywhere near the convention security footprint threatens the safety of the attendees. In response, the Coalition to March on the RNC issued a public statement criticizing ongoing efforts to limit expression during the national political convention which will come to Milwaukee in July.

In their letter, RNC leaders pointed to a worsening security situation, accusing the Secret Service of not acting on its demands. “Rather than dissipating, the overall security climate has worsened significantly over the past month of the [U.S. Secret Service’s] inaction,” Republican National Committee counsel Todd Steggerda wrote in a letter to the agency. “Your failure to act now to prevent these unnecessary and certain risks will imperil tens of thousands of Convention attendees, inexcusably forcing them into close proximity to the currently planned First Amendment Zone.”

The RNC will be held around the Fiserv Forum in downtown Milwaukee July 15-18. The Coalition to March on the RNC has struggled to get a permit to hold demonstrations within sight and sound of the convention. City officials, working in conjunction with the Secret Service, have proposed marking out a stage where groups will be allowed 15 minutes to speak, whether in favor of the convention and republican policy, or against. Meanwhile the coalition, which is made up of over 60 organizations, has yet to have its permit to protest approved by the city.
