I can't believe these two idiots, excuse me, DR Jill and POTUS Joe, would risk the lives of these to precious people by not wearing masks. Agree or disagree with Jimmy Carter, that's up to you, but he IMO is a wonderful human being, as well is his wife.
I don't care about the camera tricks....screw that. They should be ashamed of themselves for this shit. WTF?

And....



“In what will likely come as no surprise to many - especially given the judge's own remarks during closing arguments - Derek Chauvin's lawyer filed a motion on Tuesday in Hennepin County, Minnesota, for a new trial on multiple grounds including jury misconduct and in the "interest of justice."



Eric Nelson, Mr. Chauvin’s attorney, requested a hearing to impeach the verdict on the grounds that:


"...the jury committed misconduct, felt threatened or intimidated, felt race based pressure during the proceedings, and/or failed to adhere to instructions during deliberations, in violation of Mr. Chauvin’s constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial.”
"The Court abused its discretion when it denied Defendant’s motion for a new trial on the grounds that publicity during the proceedings threaten[ed] the fairness of the trial,” the filing said.

"The State committed pervasive, prejudicial prosecutorial misconduct, which deprived Mr. Chauvin of his constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial, including but not limited to: disparaging the Defense; improper vouching; and failing to adequately prepare its witnesses," the motion concluded.

Texas ‘Critical Race Theory’ Opponents Win School Board Election

Good to see there are still plenty of folks saying NO to the bullshit of 'critical race theory" aka a new approach to "give me more free shit"

"CRT has gradually proliferated in recent decades through academia, government structures, school systems, and the corporate world. It redefines human history as a struggle between the “oppressors” (white people) and the “oppressed” (everybody else), similarly to Marxism’s reduction of history to a struggle between the “bourgeois” and the “proletariat.” It labels institutions that emerged in majority-white societies as racist and “white supremacist.”

Like Marxism, it advocates for the destruction of institutions, such as the Western justice system, free-market economy, and orthodox religions, while demanding that they be replaced with institutions compliant with the CRT ideology."
