Why is a man who tried to overthrow the government still running for president and having campaign rallies? The system doesn't work.

Thank you, Joyce, for your tireless work to keep us educated, and in a way that is easy for us lay-people to understand! Happy Independence Day to you! Enjoy your time with your family.

That's a wonderful idea about encouraging people to vote! We are going to need every vote we can get! For the 2020 election, I volunteered to phone bank during our "get out the vote campaign". We were asking Democratic leaning voters to make a plan to vote with friends and/or remind people to vote. I took it a step further by asking those voters to remind their friends to vote as well. All it takes is a few people to start a big chain reaction! We can make a difference!!!!

I am more and more impressed with Jack Smith with each passing day. He appears to me to be a regular by the book badass.

Query for you, Joyce: How might the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA) affect the way this trial is scheduled and conducted?

Dang, I thought I was going to watch some streaming show, then saw your post. All well and good, Joyce. I still think Judge Cannon, who is as qualified to be a Judge as Coney Barrett is, and that is not a good thing, will end up being replaced because if she doesn't, and she goofs up on purpose, then trump's attorneys have opportunities to call for a redo, which will give trump more delay time. Of course, we cannot forget that Jack Smith is busy with the J6 case, too. I'm wondering if the GA case will EVER indict before the DA there gets drop-kicked to the curb with their new law. Have fun on the 4th. Carry on.

The truth is, I am a bit worn out with news on Trump. What does this man have to offer? Not much except flirting with crime and then crossing the line into criminal activity. But thank you Joyce because you give an in-depth view of TFG. Like it or not he has become a prominent figure in our political discourse.

Thank you, Joyce, for your clear explanations of ideas I'd almost given up on understanding. A legal mind I have not. You are such a big help! Happy Fourth!!!

Great shot of Birmingham celebrating! Here at Lake Martin things are starting a bit early not unusual. Bubba does always consult the calendar.

Thank you for sharing what to look for coming out of court in Florida. I always feel better prepared after your readout.

ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY!

Here is follow up on Joyce's illuminating letter "Enough with the Court" on 7/01/23. As Joyce wrote, the 303 Creative ruling by SCOTUS is a dangerous slippery slope for unprotecting all protected classes of people in this country. It set my hair on fire, and here is what we can do about it:

Neal Katyal says Colorado AG should ask SCOTUS for rehearing on 303 Creative:

We can contact CO AG Phil Weiser:

Fellow reader Bryan Sean McKown offers this great enhancement and brilliant idea:

"Bingo Ellie! I have already lodged my official complaint at the Colorado Attorney General's Website v suggested Rule 44, Motion for Re-Hearing within the mandatory 25 days.

I also recommended that Colorado hire NEAL KATYAL to handle the Motion ... that would be Neals' 51st appearance at SCOTUS if they do hire the top appellate attorney in the Land"

Happy 4th and protecting our democracy!

What happens if Judge Cannon denies petitions from both parties and holds firm on the August start date?
