We will know soon enough. The conga line of C130s will form around Tuesday afternoon.

Gonzalez faces a primary run-off at the end of May.

Four different right wing challengers held him to under 50% in the March primary.

Matt Gaetz has come into the district to campaign against him (which doubtless contributes to his words there). The runners up are endorsing his opponent (who is a far right Latino "second amendment activist" named Brandon Herrera -- oh so cleverly using "Let's Go Brandon" as a campaign theme.)

While Gonzalez is considered the favorite, the fact that the incumbent was forced into a primary run-off is never a good sign.

The district is a 53-46% Trump/Biden seat. The population nearly 2/3 Latino, but probably close to Anglo white voting majority due to issues of citizenship, age, and lower voting participation by Latinos in rural Texas. It include the site of the Uvalde massacre. It could end up in play in a strong Democratic year - especially if a candidate to the right of Gonzalez is the nominee.

Rapidcreek OP ,

There are satellites over the area that are pretty good. They can see the launch and by analysis can identify what was launched. They also can see where the people who launched it came from and where they went to afterwards.

Rapidcreek OP ,

A false flag to do what?

Rapidcreek OP ,

We are in the region. That's why they fired rockets at us.

Rapidcreek OP ,

The CIA doesn't inform me of their analysis, but it's probably done by now. Unconfirmed reports is that there are US dead. So, just as happened with the 3 dead US troops in Jordan weeks ago, something will happen.

Live Free or Die should be changed to replace the “or” with an “and.”

Supreme Court weighs Donald Trump case, abortion bans, homeless camps in blockbuster week ( www.usatoday.com )

Most notably, the high court will weigh if and when a former president can claim criminal immunity for acts committed while in office as Trump, who is currently on trial for allegedly concealing hush money payments to an adult film actress, fights three additional indictments over his attempts to overturn the 2020 election and...

Rapidcreek OP ,

That's what happens when you delay judgment on a frivolous pleading from Trump.

They pile up at the deadline.

Maybe you should have denied cert, guys.

Rapidcreek ,

The fact that the conventional wisdom portrays Kennedy as a bigger threat to Biden than to Trump is nearly as insane as Kennedy himself. Literally the only thing about him that appeals to Democrats is his last name, whereas on virtually all policy issues he's aligned with the loony fringe right.

(Mind you, I ultimately think he's going to be largely irrelevant to both sides - I think the conventional wisdom also wants to make him a big deal period because the media's obsessed with having third-party candidates matter.)

The shoes and bibles didn't work? Time to open up a casino. No one ever lost money owning a casino.

Rapidcreek OP ,

The right wing Zealots of every religion are a stain on all human rights.

I am sick of them all..and wish we could put every religions zealot members on an island together to let them duke it out..and leave the rest of the world alone...

They used F-35s to go 159 miles inland and hit an S300 air defense system next to a nuclear facility.

When the Sioux fought Custer and others they used what they called a Coup Stick. It was a big stick with a big rock tied to the end of it. They would ride into the enemy camp and hit them in the head with what amounted to be a hammer, or coup stick. It had a meaning. "You're mine." Then they would circle back, kill the guy, and take his scalp

This attack was a Coup Stick. The Israelis showed they could attack deep inside Iran, and strike Iran's more sensitive locations. It was a message.

Great story. The Slovakians are more concerned than their government is.

Rapidcreek ,

This bill was not passed by the Senate. The Senate is scheduled to begin voting on this bill on Tuesday.

Rapidcreek ,

I don't believe that's a problem. Remember, they already passed a bipartisan iteration of these bills. Rand Paul has promised to slow it down, but they'll run him over if they have to.

"I don't need a ride, I need ammo." Was perhaps the wisest thing to say to the American people.

Rapidcreek ,

Sympathizers is quite a way to describe an armed gang that has killed US troops.

Rapidcreek ,

Might? I love the way some describe these guys as something other than what they are.

first Southern auto factory to approve a union with an election since the 1940s

Seeing how Republicans love going back to pre-1964 times, I'm sure they'll approve of this! /s

Hit 150 miles into Iran with F 35's. It was a message.

Darn but I'm happy that I'm not in Leticia's gun sights. Speaking of, she's after the NRA too.

Rapidcreek ,

Trump efforts to kill the bill in the house failed.

The law technically expired Friday midnight, but a federal court this month granted the government a one-year extension to continue intelligence collection.

He seems to be getting his way less.

Every time I see headlines like these I remember that Ukraine denied the US told them to stop hitting oil plants in Russia, but people kept repeating the story.

Anyway...

Ukrainian forces launched a drone attack on Kardymovo, Smolensk Oblast tonight, successfully hitting a pair of Russian oil depots.

Both of the complexes are heavily burning.

Rapidcreek ,

Trumpster Fire?

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

Rapidcreek OP ,

The minority party rarely helps bring a bill out of rules that it doesn't sponsor.

Rapidcreek OP ,

Bipartisanship is when a bill is sponsored by both parties. Here, the Republicans wrote a bill and sent it to the floor.
