When Allito repeated that he didn't want to talk about the specific subject of Thursday's Supreme Court hearing (Trump's attempted cover up of his coup), but about a "future rule," I listened carefully. We all know that Congress is in charge of making law, not the Supremes. Allito wanted to speculate about the "future," about how to decide about other presidents that, what?...might attempt treason? Having studied Project 2025, I immediately wondered what he had in mind. Did anyone else wonder?

For me, this totally ties it together with the Zeitgeist of it all. It's Keith O's pro-democracy righteous rage rant on YouTube. He's plainly aware-and as usual, weaves his unique position in the media landscape with his equally unique, caring, snarky, curmudgeonly wordsmith eloquence on the current state of affairs. His rant, specifically went where most fear to tread, and IMHO, it's *always* in his attempts to defibrillate goodness and all that radiates from it.
