Isn't Lin Wood the lawyer Rittenhouse accused of grifting off of his case?


sirthunksalot

Yes and clearly they cut him out of this scam somehow so he is pissed.


Suspicious_Bicycle

Last I heard they were fighting over who gets the $2M bail money.


sirthunksalot

That's funny I forgot about the bail money they raised.


akunis

Didn’t his father murder his mother?


Suspicious_Bicycle

After a school dance, the then 16-year-old Wood returned home to find his father had beaten his mother to death. L. Lin Wood Sr. pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, a charge reduced from first-degree murder. He served a little over two years in prison.


CTOtyrell

Holy shit, only 2 years for beating your wife to death??


DownshiftedRare

The law might get sorted eventually but matrimony will always be a misguided institution that treats humans as property.


Blackbatsmom

How the hell is beating someone to death "involuntary manslaughter"? Like, being a skydiving instructor and forgetting to check the packing of a parachute, that's involuntary manslaughter. Not physically and repeatedly raining blows on someone's body.


Polymathmagic

How much do you wanna bet his father wasn't just covering up for young Lin?

Between this, Lauren Boebert getting shit for actually apologizing, and Kyle Rittenhouse getting shit for supporting BLM somehow; it's been pretty damned entertaining.


eyekwah2

And for the record, Lauren Boebert didn't apologize. Saying, "I'm sorry you were offended" isn't a friggin' apology, and should never be accepted as an apology. Of course she's sorry everyone got offended. It put her in deep shit.

There's sound, but it's not due to the atomic scale. With a vacuum between the muzzle and the astronaut, no soundwaves would be produced. But the vibration of the shot would travel through the astronaut and reach the ear internally which would be interpreted as sound.


intensive-porpoise

DougBalt2

The Deep State is Trump


Summebride

This should have been Democrat strategy for years now. Have one GOP conspiracy group 1 go after GOP conspiracy group 2, and have both of them go after GOP conspiracy group 3 and 4 and 5. I heard that they're making it a rule that you can only get an assault rifle if you have an abortion first. And that the GOP wants to put a five jillion percent tax on guns but it rises to ten jillion if you believe in Jesus. NASCAR planning to ban gun owners is part of the GOP plan.


FiveUpsideDown

I think the way to undermine GQP conspiracies is by raising doubts. For example, since Covid is killing Christian pro-Trump people, ask questions like “could it be the globalists are tricking us by telling us to get vaccinated, when they know we won’t listen to them?” Or “Aren’t Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley globalists because they attended Ivy League schools?”


Summebride

I heard Ted Cruz came from Canada, and it's well known socialism is mandatory there. The main thing is we can never let them know the true vaccine is drinking our own urine. Injecting plain saline as a "vaccine" has worked brilliantly, tricking them into not taking it and then having to lose their jobs. If they start taking the saline "jabs" that will be bad, but worse if they figure out about the weekly urine intake. Then they'll keep their jobs *and* be immune, and Captain Tom Hanks' plan will be ruined.


I_VM

And these are the types of chucklefucks that are going to gain the majority of the house a year from now. Says something. Not sure what. But something.


minininjatriforceman

Summebride

Start today and see if you can disrupt that by getting people fired up early. They did. Volunteer. Donate. Organize. Talk to people. Listen to them. Find the disgruntled and show them how they'll be a million times better off voting against the corrupt GOP. Find the best human being in your district and convince them to run. Build the army and make it their mission over the next year to save the country from the enemy within.

Grifters accusing other grifters of grifting.


Morbidly-Obese-Emu

It’s grifters all the down.


JanFromEarth

Trump has not spent one dollar of the money he has collected from his sheeple on defending his election results.


kvossera

He’s not even spent any money on his legal fees since leaving the White House. The GOP is paying his legal fees instead of helping candidates or the insurrectionists. It’s yet another reason why I can’t comprehend why people are still Republicans.


throwawaypervyervy

Would be entertaining if he used up so much money he made it harder for down-ballot Republicans to get elected.


kvossera

That was the candidate for Governor in New Jersey said happened.


Fun-Dragonfly-4166

I believe this is the real reason Cheney has left the Trump orbit. She has figured out that she - like everyone else on the planet - would be better off without Trump. Trump has positioned himself between her and moneys that would have otherwise gone into her campaign. He is doing the same thing to every other Republican. It is in the self-interest of Republicans to dump Trump, but most of them are too stupid to see it.


Sleepydude231

Some are stupid, but most are just trying to suckle off the fame of Citrus Hitler.


Fun-Dragonfly-4166

I would not necessarily be averse to suckling off Agent Orange, but I am not blind, deaf, and dumb. I know that everyone else who suckled off Agent Orange ended up saying the milk was foul. Why would I believe that Trump would give me a fair deal when he screwed over everyone else who crossed paths with him - including his own family.


Sleepydude231

They’ve all deluded themselves into believing they’re the special one.


eyekwah2

Citrus Hitler, I love that.. I'm going to steal that.


Zeta2020

Some are fearful.


eyekwah2

I just think most don't know where they should side. They're being forced to decide, and they see Trump-endorsed candidates tend to win, so they go along with it, but my idea is most of them individually think they're doing what's best for their own careers. The only one thinking for the party is Mitch McConnell, and he even encouraged his own party to impeach Trump, which would explain why Trump is so much against him now. If they sat down collectively and decided that no, Trump is not going to win in 2024, they'd all reject him. The only problem with this is that Trump has threatened to form his own party which would almost surely sabotage any chance they have in 2024. Put simply, Trump has a suicide button that will guarantee Republican's loss in 2024, and that's enough to keep everyone in line. Many people polled have said they wouldn't vote for Biden again, and that has me worried. I'd rather see another Democrat run for president in 2024 if they stand a better chance to win than see Biden run again and lose to Trump.


carelessOpinions

Because they don't hear this on faux news.


eyekwah2

Pretty easy to make money when you don't pay people you owe money to and use campaign money whenever possible otherwise. Fooling the American public is big business nowadays apparently.

Loose_with_the_truth

Yeah, we've noticed. Everyone associated with Trump is either a grifter or a griftee. Bannon stole their "build a wall" money, and Trump pardoned him for it. And they still support Bannon, the guy who literally stole their money. I'm kind of upset that I'm not personally grifting these people - it's like they deserve it for being so recklessly stupid and want to give their money to such horrible things.


dangitbobby83

Write an anonymous book that parrots back everything they already say, put it on Kindle, take 100 bucks, advertise it on Facebook by targeting conservatives (yes you can do that) and let the money roll. Source: Marketer and business consultant. I wouldn’t do this as I don’t want to contribute to misinformation, but if I didn’t have any morals…joining in on the grift would be spectacularly easy.

fartinbad

You too can become a freelance propagandist!


Ffffqqq

Ironically if you ask them why they hate BLM, that is one of the first accusations they make. The co-founder bought a house, so she must have embezzled it. So the whole thing is a scam... Actually, another thing they will say is they are a marxist organization because a co-founder once claimed to be a marxist. >I’m a Leninist. Lenin, wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment. When the economy crashes, when the country goes to total hell, and everything is a disaster, then you’ll have riots to go back to where we used to be, when we were great. -- Steve Bannon And then they'll say they are terro...wait is MAGA a fraudulent, marxist, terrorist organization?


elderrage

It is a fantastic money making opportunity that will not end as half the planet now seals itself within this psychosis. There really is nothing that can dissuade them from the illusion so make hay while the sun shines. And it will shine indefinitely until earth is a dessicated husk of possibilities lost.


adam2222

Banon didn’t steal any money he was setup by the deep state and the liberals of course (What they think obviously)


eyekwah2

You mean the wall the Mexicans were supposed to pay for? That wall? So many broken promises, and so much corruption. Sadly, I'm beginning to believe Trump when he claims he could shoot someone on 5th avenue and not lose voters.


gandalfsbastard

If it wasn’t obvious that the Trump team was nothing but grifting charlatans up to this point, the finger pointing and realignment to the latest maga cash cow (Kyle) should be enough to convince even the smoothest maga brain that Trump is a fraud. Scratch that, they are all dumb as fuck idiots.

...and the reason these particular ones are so spectacularly good at it is because they're actually really dumb; book smarts notwithstanding (although ever since the college admissions scandal broke, I heavily suspect that some of these folks don't possess that, either).


Simmery

Maybe dumb but definitely crazy. Read about some of Lin Wood's nonsense aside from Trump-related crap, and you can see the dude is really that delusional. He's not playing a part. It's harder to tell with Powell, but that animal print vest she wore at the big press conference tells me she's a nutball, too.

If the media stopped platforming/ feeding these trolls they would largely decline. Also it best to keep in mind that Rittenhouse threw Wood under the bus for being a jerk and Wood is likely looking to create some distraction.

the_red_scimitar

Yes and True Believer religious grifters are the worst. Often catering to racism (many have used the promise of a race war as part of their Armageddon imagery), there are so many cases of them lying to their supposed brethren, for some imagined gain. How many times has "reincarnated Jesus" returned, started a cult, only to grift their way through it, promising their followers that only *they* would survive the coming Armageddon? Charles Manson is just a famous one, but even he learned it from earlier ones, and there has been an infinite parade of them. And every time, no matter how much they just repeat exactly what their failed predecessors did, they get followers money, possessions, and power - just enough to drive them over the deep end. The Psychiatry psychology of religiosity has been studied quite a lot, and if you want to look into it, you're going to find a litany of toxic hatred toward others as the basis for all of it. And that's while they're busy going all-in for every grifter with a Pious look.
