[Epoch Times] The Department of Justice has retracted its claim that it seized a "fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set" from an accused Jan. 6 Capitol breacher.
In an memorandum asking a court to order Robert Morss be held pending trial, prosecutors claimed that law enforcement officials "recover[ed] a fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set" while arresting the defendant.
But in a supplemental motion, authorities said that they erred in conveying that claim.
"Please note that after a review of the photographs from the search, there appears to have been a miscommunication and that statement appears to be inaccurate. The Lego set was in a box and not fully constructed at the time of the search, as pictured below," they wrote. The photograph shows a box with a picture of the Capitol on the front. Some prosecutor's first day on the job? Should be their last
Morss and other breachers ultimately entered the Capitol through a broken window, footage showed.
Prosecutors allege that he would pose a danger to the community and present a flight risk if released. Is he going to use his Lego airplane?
A hearing on whether to allow Morss's release is scheduled for July 13.
Cubans got fed up with the failures of Marxism and Communism.
Well, hell! I was so sure they would finally get communism right this time.
I don't want to be a Negative Nancy, but if you can't get something working after trying for a hundred years, maybe, just maybe, your initial assumptions are wrong. I recommend iterating faster like we do in the engineering world when we are "exploring the solution space". Think Elon Musk blowing up rockets right and left and ending up with cheap commercial space transport vs Virgin Galactic's recent spam-in-a-can flight. Revolt early, revolt often!
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Progressive Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez Dem Congressgirl from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details. She was the inventor of the Green New Deal, though she doesn't talk about it much anymore... went after 'good ol conservative values' in responding to a CPAC speech by Lauren Boebert on Saturday
Boebert hit back, making it personal by bringing AOC's family into the argument
'Ask Abuela how that government reliance is going,' she said of the progressive lawmaker's Puerto Rican grandmother
Ocasio-Cortez said this sort of personal attack is proof that 'today's version of 'conservative role mode' is a person who mocks' others
Boebert finished the feud by lashing out at AOC posting pictures of her abuela's dilapidated house and not helping while owning two apartments and a Tesla
Boebert told a crowd in Dallas on Saturday that government needs to 'leave us the hell alone', and stop dolling out welfare and pushing vaccines on Americans
'We don't want your benefits. We don't want your welfare. Don't come knocking on my door with your Fauci Ouchi,' Rep. Boebert said of federal government
To be honest AOC said, I wanted Chinese Food, but after the argument I had with closest one to my office, over them not providing me with Taco Sauce for my Spring Egg rolls, well, its OK, hope they don't have any hard feelings about it.
