Has to be locked...at least temporarily. That is what happens when a moderator locks a thread.

Musta been a dust up of some kind.

They usually unlock them fairly quickly. Just giving a time-out.

Glitterbag went on another name-calling rampage. Most of her name-calling has been removed now, but I see that her first attack on me is still there, now minus my response to it.

I'm not sure if it is worth responding to that post again or not. I suppose I could accuse her of projecting or something. But perhaps the remainder of my responses to her now-removed name-calling already serve as a response.

@oralloy,
I think it had more to do with the last four posts on the thread, all of which are yours.

@izzythepush,
Those were responses to Glitterbag's name-calling which has now been removed.

Except for my last post, which was a response to Builder, who was commenting on the name-calling situation.

I'm unsure why Builder's post was removed. It seems innocuous enough to me from what I can remember of it.

@snood,
I guess the resident genius doesn't know that I can see every response I ever made by checking my (classified secret) page. I have made very few posts on that thread, but I can see what YKW records........interesting.

Trump Calls McConnell 'Very Bad for the Republican Party' as Feud Intensifies
Quote:
onald Trump recently spoke with senators and allies about potentially replacing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who the former president said is "very bad for the Republican Party," The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

Trump was gauging if there is any interest to depose McConnell, but Senate Republicans are reportedly not keen to proceed with such a plan, according to lawmakers and aides.

According to the Journal, Trump didn't mention whether he was recruiting potential challengers against McConnell, who represents Kentucky in the Senate. But the former president said that Republican senators should remove McConnell from the leadership position.

"They ought to," Trump said, the newspaper reported. "I think he's very bad for the Republican Party."

According to some Republicans interviewed by the Journal, ousting McConnell seems unlikely to occur.

Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana told the publication that he doesn't "realistically see that happening." Additionally, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said McConnell was needed for Trump's legislative achievements, but added that the former president is unlikely to stop attacking the Senate Minority Leader.

The feud between Trump and McConnell has long been intensifying as it threatens to break the GOP as Republicans try to regain control of Congress next year.

In August, Trump branded McConnell as the "most overrated man in politics" after the Senate minority leader voted for passing the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. That month, 18 Republicans said yes to the bill in a 67-27 vote that included Senators Bill Cassidy and Mitt Romney.

"I have quietly said for years that Mitch McConnell is the most overrated man in politics—now I don't have to be quiet anymore. He is working so hard to give Biden a victory, now they'll go for the big one, including the biggest tax increases in the history of our Country," Trump said at the time.

Trump also attacked the GOP leader in July, pointing out that McConnell is a weak politician standing in the way of the Republican Party's progress.

The criticism came as part of the former president's interview with Vanity Fair, in which he spoke about how he tried to convince McConnell to ditch the filibuster when the Republicans had the majority.

"He's a stupid person. I don't think he's smart enough," Trump said during the interview. "I tried to convince Mitch McConnell to get rid of the filibuster, to terminate it so that we would get everything, and he was a knucklehead and he didn't do it."

McConnell had spoken out against Trump on February 13 after the Senate acquitted the former president in his impeachment trial over his alleged role in the January 6 Capitol riot.

"There's no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day," McConnell said on the Senate floor following the vote. "The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president. And having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories, and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth."

Trump files lawsuit against the New York Times and niece over 2018 tax records story
Quote:
Former president Donald Trump has sued his niece, Mary L. Trump, and the New York Times over the publication of a 2018 article detailing allegations that he “participated in dubious tax schemes … including instances of outright fraud” that allowed him to receive over $413 million from his father, Fred Trump Sr., while significantly reducing taxes.

The suit, filed in a Dutchess County, N.Y., court on Tuesday, alleges that Mary Trump, the New York Times and at least three of its reporters “engaged in an insidious plot to obtain confidential and highly-sensitive records” about the former president’s finances. According to the lawsuit, Donald Trump suffered at least $100 million in damages as a result of the alleged actions.

Trump, unlike every other major-party presidential nominee in recent history, has declined to make his tax records public.

The New York Times and the three reporters named in the suit — David Barstow, Susanne Craig and Russ Buettner — won the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Explanatory Reporting for their 18-month investigation that culminated in the article. Their work “debunked [Trump’s] claims of self-made wealth and revealed a business empire riddled with tax dodges,” according to the Pulitzer Prize board.

After the article’s publication, Trump dismissed the story as a “hit piece” that was “boring.”

Donald Trump’s suit alleges that the New York Times influenced Mary Trump to help them acquire confidential documents despite a settlement agreement that she had signed after a legal challenge to Fred Trump Sr.’s will. In her 2020 book “Too Much and Never Enough,” Mary Trump detailed how she helped the reporters obtain Donald Trump’s financial records.

At 3 a.m. one day in 2017, she took 19 boxes of documents from Farrell Fritz, the law firm that helped her challenge the estate of Fred Trump Sr., and handed them over to the journalists. A lawyer at the firm had told her she was entitled to take the documents, as long as at least one copy was left behind, Mary Trump said.

“It wasn’t enough for me to volunteer at an organization helping Syrian refugees,” she wrote. “I had to take Donald down.”

News of the lawsuit was first reported by the Daily Beast. Mary Trump told the news website that the legal action was motivated by “desperation. … The walls are closing in and he is throwing anything against the wall that will stick. As is always the case with Donald, he’ll try and change the subject.”

A spokeswoman for the Times said that the paper’s coverage of Donald Trump’s taxes “helped inform citizens through meticulous reporting on a subject of overriding public interest. This lawsuit is an attempt to silence independent news organizations, and we plan to vigorously defend against it.”

Donald Trump and Mary Trump didn’t immediately return requests for comment.

Donald Trump asks Florida judge to force Twitter to reinstate account
Quote:
Donald Trump, the former US president, has asked a federal judge in Florida to force Twitter to reinstate his account.

In July Trump sued Twitter, Facebook and Google, as well as their chief executives, alleging they unlawfully silence conservative viewpoints.

Trump’s request for a preliminary injunction against Twitter was filed late on Friday in Miami, claiming the social media company cancelled his account in January under pressure from his political rivals in Congress, the report by Bloomberg News said.

Twitter declined to comment. Trump’s representatives did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment outside business hours.

Trump lost his social media megaphone this year after the companies said he violated their policies against glorifying violence.
