Get Out The Vote

In other news, Twitter says it has deleted 10,000 fake accounts that were discouraging people from voting in next week's elections.

Meanwhile, a federal judge has ruled against the Trump regime's attempt to block the emoluments lawsuits filed by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia. The lawsuit will now proceed to discovery, which should be very illuminating.

Finally, Wired reports that Ecuadorian authorities are considering kicking Julian Assange out of their embassy in London because he doesn't clean his cat's litter box or his own. He also... rides a skateboard indoors?

It seems the foreign service, which originally granted Assange asylum on the grounds that he was a swashbuckling crusader for government transparency, had had enough of Assange’s neglect of his cat and its litter box. The embassy is also fed up with his indifference to basic hygiene and bathroom cleanliness; his mooching of food and Wi-Fi; his woodwork-damaging indoor-skateboarding habit; and his general Kato Kaelin–style freeloading. Assange’s six-year tenancy at the embassy has cost the government $6 million. So far.

Assange is 47 years old, not 17.

Anyway, I don't know about y'all but I'm exhausted. I can't keep my eyes open and it's not even dark yet.

Have a good weekend and don't forget to set your clocks back on Sunday. Speak to your friends or family over the weekend and urge them to vote on Tuesday if they haven't already.

    Twitter desperately needs to up it’s game in the ethics dept. Which is to say, it needs to get some.

    I really want to get a look at Trump’s taxes. Not because I think it will hurt him politically. I don’t. I want them released because it will drive him bonkers and hopefully will get him in trouble legally in ways he and his clan of grifters will be dealing with for a long time to come.

    I’ve grown more than a little tired of the “rise of the nerds” supposedly leading some kind of information revolution and “taking down” the “powers that be” or the “gatekeepers.” String ASSange up by his boot heels and turn him over to the Brits who’ll probably have much more leeway to investigate his ties to Russia than American authorities given Trump and his party of 5th columnists. Then just bury him under a prison.

    So when is Ecuador going to stand up and kick this piece of shit out onto the curb?
