‘No Doubt’ Trump and His Allies Were Staging a ‘Seditious Conspiracy’: Former Harvard Law Professor
On Monday’s edition of CNN’s “OutFront,” former Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe broke down how the plan concocted by far-right lawyer John Eastman on behalf of former President Donald Trump to overturn the 2020 election constituted a “seditious conspiracy.”
“I know you call this an attempted coup, not just in the general use of the word that so many have adopted, but in a very specific way. You say Eastman delivered the blueprint,” said anchor Erin Burnett. “Tell me why you now feel so confident that that is exactly the word which describes exactly what it was he was trying to do, and that that was Trump’s intention.”
“Well, there’s no doubt from the information we now have about the meeting that Trump was holding with people like Giuliani and Eastman shortly before the insurrection that we all saw on live television, that they were planning, step by step, to twist arms and pressure people, including building a gallows if necessary with Pence’s name on it, in order to get the vice president to perform a role that the Constitution doesn’t assign the vice president,” said Tribe.
Tribe then went on to cite the specific law that he believes Trump and his allies broke with their actions before and during the Capitol riots.
“It was seditious conspiracy,” he said. “That’s the term that the U.S. Criminal Code uses, 18 U.S. Code section 2384, and then it led to inciting an insurrection. It was all part of a long plan, much more public than most coups that we see.”
Tribe went on to detail how the former president might try to replicate his illegitimate attempt to take power in 2024.
“The back-up plan is to get states to disregard the votes of the people even after the suppression of votes and the counting by people who are partisans if it doesn’t go their way,” he said.
Tribe concluded by warning Americans against complacency, as “we can’t just let that go on while we go over the cliff and destroy our democracy.”
‘Privileged’ Millionaire Joe Manchin Blasted for Claim $3.5 Trillion Jobs Bill Could Create ‘Entitlement Mentality’
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) for months has effectively been working to derail President Joe Biden’s agenda, by refusing to eliminate the filibuster and by refusing to support Democrats’ $3.5 trillion jobs bill.
Like many of the wealthiest Americans, the coronavirus pandemic did not hurt Senator Manchin’s net worth. It grew by $1 million from 2018 to 2020, to $8.6 million, leading some on Monday to blast him over remarks he made to reporters Monday about “entitlement mentality” over Biden’s $3.5 trillion jobs, infrastructure, and social spending legislation.
“We’re just concerned about entitlement mentality versus rewarding mentality and then taking care of those who really can’t take care of themselves… there’s so much good stuff in there that we’re still working diligently,” Manchin told reporters, as NBC News’ Sahil Kapur reports.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki noted at Monday’s daily press briefing, 80 percent of Americans support much of the legislation’s critical points.
Many, saying they are tired of Manchin trying to control if not derail the Democratic agenda, are expressing outrage.

The real “entitlement mentality” here is men like Manchin who live in a country held together by the free & underpaid labor of women, from their own mothers, to whoever raised their children, to the underpaid care workers will take care of them as they die comfortably in old age. https://t.co/ZCwbZpb1qb

Joe Manchin isn’t concerned about “entitlement mentality,” he just hasn’t been offered a big enough cut of Biden’s spending package yet. https://t.co/cfaemmMGrC

Anyone using the term”entitlement mentality” shouldn’t be a public servant period, let alone a Democratic senator. https://t.co/VfUyiD0KFN

Jacking up the price of epipens and forcing people to breathe coal dust so you can make millions is the ultimate in entitlement mentality. https://t.co/MNLhWZRzMh

Daughter was raiding into insurance money from that $100 to $600 Epipen cost raised. And he canned Ms Tandon for raising this issue. We know how deeply he is concerned about America- NONE unless it lines his POCKETS.

If he is so concerned about “entitlement mentality” then the blue states can stop giving funds to West Virginia.
Growing up in the south I’ve known many a Manchin. It’s okay for him but not for others. He wants you to believe he’s one of the good guys but he’s really not.

Entitlement mentality has been debunked by the unemployment benefit cut and lack of change in job numbers

doesn’t senator houseboat represent an entitlement state?

Okay, let’s talk about the “entitlement mentality” of West Virginians
Every year American taxpayers GIVE West Virginia **ONE-THIRD** of the state’s entire budget … just to keep the state’s residents out of extreme poverty
Why are they entitled to being subsidized by us? https://t.co/KPbioDgoqb

But he’s not concerned about corporate, fossil fuel, and coal entitlement mentality!

Great idea in hindsight considering his life as a privileged WASPy heterosexual cisgender man. Can’t have everyone expecting to have it as good as he did! #entitlementmentality #JoeManchin #EntitlementPersonified

Police Union Demanding COVID Be Treated as Workplace Injury Says ‘Dozens’ of Troopers to Quit Over Vaccine Mandate
The union representing Massachusetts State Troopers is claiming that “dozens” are set to resign over the state’s Republican governor’s mandate that all executive department personnel provide proof of vaccination by October 17, or risk “disciplinary action including possible termination,” according to the Associated Press. That mandate applies to “42,000 state workers and contractors in the executive branch.”
In an undated statement the State Police Association of Massachusetts (SPAM) says “dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork, some of whom plan to return to other departments offering reasonable alternatives such as mask wearing and regular testing.”
In that same press release, union president Michael Cherven says they were suing “to treat a COVID related illness as a line of duty injury.”
SPAM filed a lawsuit earlier this month “saying the Oct. 17 deadline would cause troopers ‘irreparable harm’ and they wanted more time to ‘negotiate the terms and conditions of their employment.'”
There are about 1800 state troopers.
Last week, the Associated Press reported, Judge Jackie Cowin ruled that “the public interest is, unquestionably, best served by stopping the spread of the virus, in order to protect people from becoming ill, ensure adequate supply of medical services, and curtail the emergence of new, deadlier variants of the virus.”
About 20 percent of Massachusetts State Troopers are unvaccinated.
Some conservatives are weighing in.
David Frum says their decision to resign “may be enabled by the favorable pension deals they receive, no matter what else they have done.”
Massachusetts employs more than 1,800 uniformed state troopers. If 20 or 30 of them do resign over vaccine mandates – well, that's one way to identify the officers least committed to protecting public safety.

And Bill Kristol simply says, “Mandates work.”
“Dozens” (allegedly) out of more than 2,000 Massachusetts state troopers. Mandates work. https://t.co/z0iMQ8gq5g
