Did you know yesterday was National Superhero Day? What the heck, GIPHY, you don’t mention this in morning when I’m gif hunting I have to find out at ten at night?!

Here is to all you TNBers superheroes.


Speaking of did you know … did y’all know about the Federal Reserve being involved in a trading scandal from 2020? Because I didn’t know this until just this morning and I am kicking myself for not knowing it. I mean, this just broke last fall, 2021, and I am racking my brain wondering, how the hell did I miss this?

Makes me wonder why Biden choose to renominate Powell for another four year term when his term expired in February of this year.

Interesting, eh. 😒

Okay, let’s do this.

@POTUS timeline got busy tweeting another 14 times all the way to after 9 PM last night and posting another 9! releases at the White House briefing room so, suit up, superhero peeps, for Thursday’s cleanup.


These last 3 are a thread.

[Is it just me or is that last one a bit on the contradictory side of things. Isn’t that bs what dragged European countries and EU members into this problem in the first place of putting themselves into the very position of being blackmailed, ffs? Oh, I’m sorry, did I just roll my eyes out loud? *turns head and spits*]

A Proclamation on Law Day, U.S.A., 2022
APRIL 28, 2022


On May 1 the United States officially recognizes Law Day. It is meant to reflect on the role of law in the foundation of the country and to recognize its importance for society.

Before President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared May 1 to be Law Day, U.S.A., the first day of May was known in some parts of the world as May Day: a day to remember the struggles of workers in their fight for better wages and working conditions. Law Day was conceived by the late Hicks Epton, an attorney from Wewoka, Oklahoma, who served as Oklahoma Bar Association president in 1953. Before he became president, Mr. Epton served as head of the public relations committee, and in 1951, he launched one of the most important public relations programs ever undertaken by the OBA: Know Your Liberties – Know Your Courts Week. This was one of the last weeks of April dedicated to educating the public about the legal system and celebrating the liberties we have as Americans.[1] The Know Your Liberties – Know Your Courts Week spread across the nation and earned for the association two Freedom Foundation awards. Law Day, as a national celebration of the law, was originally the idea of Charles S. Rhyne, Eisenhower’s legal counsel for a time, who was serving in 1957–1958 as president of the American Bar Association.[2] Eisenhower proclaimed May 1 to be Law Day, U.S.A. in 1958.[3] Its observance was later codified by Public Law 87-20 on April 7, 1961.[4]

Biden’s Proclamation on Law Day reads in part:

America is unique among the nations of the world because we were not built around any particular tribe, religion, or ethnicity — instead, we were built around an idea: that all people are created equally and deserve to be treated equally throughout their lives.  Though we have never fully lived up to that idea, we have never walked away from it either.  It is an idea that serves as the heart of American democracy, enshrined in our Constitution 235 years ago on a summer day in Philadelphia.  To uphold those fundamental principles of equality, “We the People” would stand sovereign in America as stewards and subjects of the law — and ours would be, in the words of John Adams, “a government of laws, and not of men.”

On Law Day, U.S.A., we recommit to extending the full promise of America to all Americans and to building a Nation in which the extraordinary power vested in “We the People” truly and equally reflects all of us. This year’s Law Day theme, “Toward a More Perfect Union:  The Constitution in Times of Change,” is a reflection of this critical moment of reckoning for our democracy.  The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our communities has put a spotlight on lingering inequities that we must continue to address head on.  Together, we must build a better America, anchored by the rule of law, to ensure that every one of us can live lives of limitless possibility.  Amid unprecedented threats to democracy both here at home and across the globe, the world is watching America to see whether we can meet this moment.

On this Law Day, U.S.A., I encourage my fellow Americans to join me in pursuing the path of inclusion and equity over exclusion and hate, so that we may continue to perfect our Union and pass on a stronger democracy for generations to come.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, in accordance with Public Law 87-20, as amended, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2022, as Law Day, U.S.A.  I call upon all Americans to acknowledge the importance of our Nation’s legal and judicial systems with appropriate ceremonies and activities, and to display the flag of the United States in support of this national observance.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-sixth.
