    Days and days of rain behind us and it’s predicted to ve here for at least another week, it’s not a gully washer but it’s enough to keep the humidity high enough to where there’s a constant mist or haze in the air. Just went outside and it’s misty enough to stop the flashlight about 100 feet out but if you look straight up you can see stars. Entire world outside also smells like mildew.

            SMH in wonder. NOLA’s music went to Scotland. How?

            But remember, Average White Band was Scottish, too, and somehow pure American funk made it to Scotland through them.

            But remember still, a great many of our Founding Fathers were Scots, so it’s no surprise America’s unique music made it back there.

            Lovely just gave me my new favorite bunch of musicians. It’s wonderful stuff. I’ve been binging on Live from Daryl’s House episodes for years, and these folks are like a parallel universe I never saw or even heard of.

    Duterte said he was being sarcastic when he made widely-criticized comment

    Barron Trump Thought Beheaded Image Was His Dad

    http://www.tmz.com/2017/05/31/barron-trump-thought-donald-beheaded-image-real/

    Barron Trump was watching television Tuesday at home with Melania when Kathy Griffin’s photo appeared on the screen, and his initial reaction was that something terrible happened to his father.

    Trump family sources tell us Barron was in front of the TV watching a show when the news came on and he saw the bloody, beheaded image. We’re told he panicked and screamed, “Mommy, Mommy!”

    As it was put to us, “He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.”

    Who know if this is true, but it could be.

    Police: Man staying at DC’s Trump International Hotel faces charges after weapons found in vehicle

    http://www.fox5dc.com/news/257998077-story

    Authorities say a man staying at the Trump International Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C. faces charges after weapons, including a rifle, were found in his vehicle. The incident happened around 2 a.m. on Wednesday. No injuries were reported.

    A police report says a Glock pistol, a Bushmaster rifle, and ammunition were found in the man’s vehicle outside of the hotel.

    The man has been identified as 43-year-old Bryan Moles of Edinboro, Pennsylvania. He faces charges of carrying a weapon without a license.

    FOX 5’s Melanie Alnwick say police tracked Moles to the D.C. hotel after he made unspecified threats. More information is expected to be learned at a 11 a.m. press conference.

    Assassination threat?

    I think this is great. Now Jewish kids who struggle in school due to self-esteem issues can be told that they are descended from emperors. Jewish children raised by single mothers can have something to grasp onto, to know that they come from greatness. This can help them to improve in school and make a better life for themselves. Jewish kids who have been swept up in the indiscriminate opioid crisis and are caught in the criminal justice system for low-level nonviolent offenses can learn their history with pride and turn over a new leaf.

      I’m flashing back to a story ’60 Minutes’ did in the early 90s on how the NYC public school system was teaching black kids thst they were all decedents of kings, queens, princes and princesses who flew around their native lands on magic carpets. Ostensibly this was to boost their self-esteem, what’s a little lie in the service of the Greater Good, but it’s all part of a sales program.
      If you are ever luck enough to go to Egypt and walk the tombs you’ll see hieroglyphs learly depicting brownish Egyptians and very black persons. Then again the lighter Egyptians we see are probably the spawn of evil southern Egyptian planters who’d enslaved the true darker Egyptians.

  17. I am home from vacation and on the job hunt, and read a posting today that I thought would make my head explode. I was reading a job position for…they don’t call it a social worker but that’s what it is. I was reading along and then I read (paraphrased), “applicant will learn to understand different cultures and interpret children’s well-being within that context.”

    Okay.

    According to the Muslim culture, it’s perfectly appropriate to mutilate a little girl’s genitals. If I’m a social worker for this organization, do I have to let FGM slide? Because after all, according to Islamic culture, mutilating a little girl is perfectly acceptable, even though my Christian/Western culture would demand that both the parents and the doctor be arrested (doctor for doing it, parents for allowing it) and would call it extreme child abuse. Whose culture is right? Theirs or mine?

    This actually hurts my brain to think about.

    House Intelligence Panel Issues Seven Subpoenas in Russia Probe

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/house-intelligence-committee-said-to-have-issued-seven-subpoenas-in-russia-probe-1496261435

    The House Intelligence Committee issued seven subpoenas on Wednesday, in a sign that its investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election is ramping up in scope and intensity, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The Republican-led committee issued four subpoenas related to the Russia investigation. Three subpoenas are related to questions about how and why the names of associates of President Donald Trump were unredacted and distributed within classified reports by Obama administration officials during the transition between administrations.

    The committee has subpoenaed the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency for information about what is called β€œunmasking.” Republicans on the committee have been pushing for a thorough investigation of how the names of Trump campaign officials became exposed in classified intelligence reports based off intelligence community intercepts.

    Those subpoenas seek information on requests made by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power for names to be unmasked in classified material. The three didn’t personally receive subpoenas, the people familiar with the matte said. Mr. Brennan, Ms. Rice and Ms. Power didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

    Ms. Power hasn’t previously been reported as a potential witness in the probe so her inclusion in the subpoenas may mean Republicans are broadening their areas of investigation…

      It seems the investigation has found no collusion between Team Trump and Russia but instead is focused on misconduct amongst high ranking Obama mates.

      I’m saying this after watching the meltdown here in WI over Act 10 and Scott Walker, I’m saying this after watching liberals crying in the street when the CNN van drove away from the Capitol Building telling the little moppets that there was nothing left to do or report on in WI, I’m saying it after we saw mad hatters wipe their feces on the pillars of that same Capitol Building, folks, we ain’t seen nothing like we are going to see when the Obama and Clinton snuggle buddies are indicted and zero collusion is found between Russia and Trump.

    Hillary’s first 2020 campaign interview.

    “Look, I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that’s not why I lost, so I think it’s important that we learn the real lessons from this last campaign,” Clinton said during a question and answer session at the 2017 Code Conference.

    It’s important to learn the real lessons from this last campaign ………. because I’m going to win the presidency in my next campaign.

    Where else is that statement leading? The only other possibility I see is them foisting Chelsea Gump on the DNC.

    Thankfully Hillary and the accomplice media has learned nothing from her shellacking in the electoral count. Unfortunately they have whipped their incurious puppet base into a hateful frenzy and none of them are any longer complacent.

    DC give-away, at Taxpayers’ expense…

    The U.S. Army is planning to grant an exclusive license to the French pharmaceutical company Sanofi Pasteur, Inc. to manufacture and sell a Zika vaccine the Army developed last year.

    Sanders and Knowledge Ecology point out that Sanofi has charged more in the U.S. for many medications, including the multiple sclerosis drug Aubagio, which costs Medicare more than $5,000, but in France it’s priced at about $745.

    “Sanofi wants to do business the old-fashioned way, and that is take taxpayers money and then charge any price that they want,” Sanders says. “Our job now is to make it clear that what Sanofi wants it not acceptable.”

    Brennan:Β I DON’T KNOW. MAYBE IT IS RINGING A VAGUE BELL, BUT I COULD NOT ANSWER WITH ANY CONFIDENCE.

    Do you hear it now Brennan?

    Michigan – that Flint guy investigating the Flint dirty water looks to be dirty himself. No surprise there. Too bad the Young Turk guys are socialists. They do some good work sometimes.
    The Flint guy is Dem. Nothing will come of this, of course.

    Found a solution to ten or more of my Windows beefs.

    DesktopOK.

    Saves your windows icon locations. When some stupid program updates and changes your screen resolution to 800×600 for a second, and then back to HD, and all your icons are not where they where before? You just click, and BAM.

    The program does a ton more. You can make it so when you’re typing in a field, your mouse cursor disappears entirely.

    Can anyone find the whole disastrous MSNBC interview where Hillary says “I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that’s not why I lost.” πŸ˜‚ “It was a thousand Russian bots!!!” I can’t find in it in it’s entirety anywhere, I saw a bit on Fox and Clinton sounded certifiably crazy.

        Weaponized tech defeated Hillary. βœ“

        I’m writing a whole book. πŸ’°

        The overriding issue that made me lose was the big nothing burger about my emails πŸ€”

        I had no control over the Russians (or I would have won) πŸ™„.

        Goldman Sachs paid me that’s what I took their money πŸ’°.

        And that is just the first 5 1/2 minutes πŸ˜‚

        Hillary is a talking disaster.

        “Look, I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that’s not why I lost, so I think it’s important that we learn the real lessons from this last campaign,” Clinton said during a question and answer session at the 2017 Code Conference.

        It’s important to learn the real lessons from this last campaign.”

        The most common thing that Hillary talked about at the Goldman Sachs meetings was finding Bin Laden. Men get paid for their speeches so it is sexist to say that Hillary shouldn’t get paid. Oh and Hillary predicted the mortgage crisis back in 2008.

        Only stupid people thought Hillary said that Nixon was impeached smart people knew she meant he was pushed out of office because they were moving toward impeachment.

        Hillary is a hero of women, civil rights and expanding rights for people in other countries. But the vast rightwing conspiracy is tireless in it’s efforts to derail her.

        Unaccountable money came in to use against Hillary and that money was married to the weaponized technology.

        There was effective suppression of votes wielded against Hillary.

        And the punch line Hillary then says her eyes wide with I am lying through my teeth cringe worthiness And that was before the Russians πŸ˜„

        A competent psychologist could make a good case that Hillary Clinton has had a mental break with reality.

        That only gets us to the 11 1/2 minute mark, I can’t handle more than a few minutes at a time without hurling.

        Yeah, right. Good luck with that.

        BTW, a people dying out because they don’t breed is not genocide.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

  30. So a thought just occurred to me, and I thought I’d get some feedback on it and then take it next door if it gains traction here.

    Like most of you, I was pretty upset that 1) Barron Trump saw that CNN witch’s, well, you know what he saw, and 2) I’m upset that it upset him. I know we’ve had days where we’ve sent postcards to President Trump before. Maybe we should send some to Barron to let him know we support his dad.

    Thoughts:

    1) Don’t know what they would say. “We love your Dad, don’t worry about the CNN witch” isn’t quite the positive message I was going for. It sort of drops at the end.
    2) Don’t know if the idea is a good one, an acceptable one (I’ve never heard of sending mail to a president’s kid before, but these are strange days) or if it will gain traction if it is.

    What do you all think?
