If that thread gif doesn’t give you nightmares, nothing will. Happy Tuesday, GN.

Closing arguments in Trump’s NY case starting -- a tragedy that this important case is not being broadcast. That’s not correct -- it’s a calculated tactic from our betters.

A societal spam filter designed by those in power to keep them in power.

I’ve been following the trial through non-MSM sources and it has been a farce from beginning to end.

This guy has been tweeting contemporaneously from the courtroom -- I noted today the number of objections by the prosecution and all of them sustained -- during defense closing arguments.

Happy “nope rope” Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, and Mac!

Three years ago, when the principal at my school succeeded in driving out my boss, the Director of Special Education, and replacing her with the principal’s long-time friend, I was given the task of processing invoices for our special education service providers. We contract with these non-public agencies to provide services that we don’t have the personnel to provide, such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, counseling services, etc. The accounting department needs to know which funding sources the various services should be charged against. I worked with our CFO to break charges down even further so we could track how much we were spending on some of our services. This helps us to decide if we should bring a service in-house, or continue to contract out. Two years ago, when I was moved out of the SpEd department, one of our Asst. Principal’s was going to take over the task (it should have fallen to our Dir. of SpEd, but she would struggle with the task). About a month into the school year, I was asked to take over coding the invoices -- it seems the AP couldn’t figure it out (and she never asked for help or training). Now that I’m moving out of admin, they’re going to have to find someone else to take over this part of my job.

All of the above is a set-up for the following: on Sunday I got an email from the Dir. of SpEd. Five days earlier she had received an email from the company we use for translation services, asking about an invoice that was sent in mid-February and she was forwarding that email to our CFO and myself. This is the only company that doesn’t send invoices directly to me. Instead, they send her a link, which then requires two-factor authentication to download the invoice. She used to send me the link, but since the 2FA goes to her email, and it takes her about 2 days to respond to email, that doesn’t work. This morning I politely responded to her email (which included the billing department of the vendor) that as I had stated in my emails of March 26 and April 24, I had not received the invoice from her. The vendor quickly sent me the invoice and our CFO asked me to have them send all future invoices directly to Accounts Payable.

Good on you for documenting your communications. Still amazing how incompetent some workers are and cya covering their butts by going to a cfo.

This Trump trial reminds me of this:

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has no regrets with falsely accusing Mitt Romney of paying zero taxes for ten years during the 2012 presidential elections.

“So the word is out that he has not paid any taxes for ten years,” Reid said on the Senate floor in August 2012. “Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn’t.”

When asked about his comments in a new interview by CNN’s Dana Bash, Reid, who recently announced he would retire in 2017 after his term is up, rebuffed those who said his attacks were “McCarthyite.”

“Well, they can call it whatever they want,” Reid said. “Romney didn’t win, did he?”
