All four car crash thieves < age 15
Monday 06-20-22 at 7:54 p.m. — An off-duty police officer called the Dane County 911 Center to report a black, Kia SUV being driven recklessly on Seven Nations Drive in Madison WI. The SUV was seen doing burnouts and nearly striking parked cars on the street. While officers were en route to investigate the reckless driving complaint, the 911 Center started receiving calls about a rollover crash, involving this same SUV, in the 2900 block of Foxwood Trail.
The SUV struck an unoccupied van which caused the SUV to rollover. The SUV and the van sustained severe damage. All of the occupants of the rollover SUV fled on foot prior to police arrival. Police located and detained four suspects near Moorland Road and Fell Road. The 2017 Kia Sportage had been stolen from a parking lot on Moorland Road. The owner of the Kia SUV became aware of the theft of her vehicle around the same time as the crash when a neighbor stopped by to return her driver’s license and other abandoned property he found in the parking lot.
The ignition key was still in the victim’s possession, however, the suspects were able to manipulate the steering column and steal the vehicle without a key. Excellent teamwork led to the arrest of all four suspects involved in the incident. All four suspects are juveniles under the age of 15 year old. None of the suspects were injured.

“Trump tried to steal an election
… and, so far, none of these defenders have mounted a serious defense against the charge. Instead, they carp about the lack of Trump defenders on the committee. As far as it goes, it’s a fair complaint. It just doesn’t go very far. Heck, even Donald Trump blames Kevin McCarthy for it. But there’s nothing stopping the carpers from offering a defense on TV or outside the hearing room.” — Jonah Goldberg.
How did Mike Pence become a RINO?
“The stolen-election theory carries many of the requisite concoctions of all fabricated conspiracies. But none are as implausible as the premise that the people who stopped Mr. Trump from claiming his rightful re-election were all sinister figures conspiring to hand the reins of power to the illegitimate Joe Biden.
“Because it hasn’t been Adam Schiff and his comrades who have made the most effective case against Donald Trump. It has been Mr. Trump’s own, handpicked people. Think about the list of conspirators that you would have to conclude had somehow become late-convert enemies of Mr. Trump (and American democracy) to believe the former President’s story.
“Mike Pence, impeccable servant of the Republican Party, loyal (crueler observers might say servile) supporter of the former President, who sometime between Nov. 3 and Jan. 6 became a notorious RINO and traitor.
“William Barr, perhaps the most effective defender of Mr. Trump through the mostly manufactured controversies of his term, but who somehow became a double agent for Mr. Biden after the election.
“Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia, who stood down Stacey Abrams’s race-baiting charges of a stolen election himself and proved himself a strong conservative in office but somehow plotted with fellow Republicans in the state to confirm a fraudulent victory for his political opponents.”
Get your shine box
Tom Nichols in The Atlantic Daily:
“The January 6 committee, however, deserves a great deal of credit for illuminating the dangerous mediocrities on whom Trump relied for his mischief — the men and women who were certain that their moment had finally arrived. These people — call them the Third String —t hought that they were finally going to The Show, and they were going to burn the Constitution if that’s what it took to stay there.
“Consider, for example, Jeffrey Bossert Clark, a minor Justice Department official who sought to oust his own boss and get Trump to make him the attorney general, after which Clark would try to overturn the election results. … Clark got his comeuppance in a meeting in the Oval Office when Acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue warned Trump that any such appointment would lead to mass resignations, and told Clark: “You’re an environmental lawyer. How about you go back to your office, and we’ll call you when there’s an oil spill.”

First, the movie doesn’t show what it says it shows.
• Cellphone tracking isn’t precise enough to distinguish between liberal activists stuffing drop boxes, and store owners, police officers, delivery men and others who have perfectly legitimate reasons to be within a few yards of the same drop box every day.
• In all five battleground states D’Souza considers, it is perfectly legal for third parties to drop off ballots for others, with varying degrees of lenience. …
• Even if every cellphone dot represented a left-wing organizer illegally dropping off another person’s ballot, that still wouldn’t make the ballot invalid. A legal ballot can be illegally delivered, although the guy who delivered it might be in trouble. — (More here.)
