The Other McCain is first with an update on the "trial" in New York. I’d Call This a Kangaroo Court, But That Would Be an Insult to Honest Kangaroos

Ed Morrisey points out that Alan Dershowitz has literally been practicing law since before Judge Juan Merchan was born. This lends greater gravity to what Dershowitz said on Hannity last night after spending Monday in Merchan’s courtroom for the Trump trial: “This judge has committed more reversible errors in the one day I was in the courtroom than I’ve seen in years and years of practicing law.”

Meep at STUMP - Taxing Tuesday Podcast: Chicago Teacher and Illinois Dreams: Tax and Spend

Recently, the Chicago Teachers Union took a little field trip to Springfield, Illinois to lobby for a bunch of goodies. Too bad that Illinois can’t really afford all the stuff it already promised in the past, as taxpayers scatter to other states.

From Glenn Harlan Reynolds - This Is How You Get More Ants. On a trip to Columbia University...

But there wasn’t much to see. Commencement was cancelled, the students were mostly gone, and other than guards scattered around, there wasn’t much sign that anything had happened. The Hamas crowd seemed way behind in the sticker wars.

Again from The Other McCain - Cognitive Decline as a Policy Principle: Understanding Biden’s Confused Agenda

When you combine Biden’s personal grudge against Netanyahu with the pro-Hamas sympathies of the Democratic Party’s left-wing grassroots, you have a situation where Biden (who, as Treacher notes, has a habit of smearing Republicans as Nazis) becomes a de facto ally of anti-Semites, and the elderly occupant of the White House is too feeble-minded to find a way to extricate himself from this situation. Why do you think the White House staff is always having to “walk back” things that Biden says? Because he doesn’t even understand his own administration’s policies.

Microsoft Edge will begin blocking screenshots at work. (PC World)

So you can't take screenshots when you want to, but Windows will take screenshots when you don't want it to. Got it.

I mean, if you were a ginger person with dwarfism, then you’d really be fucked.

Libs of TikTok gets the final word with Jimmy Heyward: The Young American Patriot. The blowback was epic.

When his school principal Mary Flock reviewed his speech, she claimed that it was too patriotic and demanded that Jimmy remove all mention of patriotism from his speech. When he refused, Jimmy was denied the ability to read his speech to the student body and was forced to sit on stage as others gave theirs.
