    Beautiful Norwegian scene, Stella.

    Helsinki Layover
    If you’re stuck on a Helsinki layover at the Helsinki, Finland (HEL) Vantaa Airport, you’re in good shape as far as airports are concerned. After all, there’s tons to do, and the airport was named one of the Top 10 Airports In The World. The airport is located 3 miles from Vantaa city center and 10 miles north of Helsinki city center which makes exploring the nearby areas very accessible for those stuck on a long layover.

      Actually, it has almost been an ongoing investigation that keeps going dormant and then popping back up. They just can’t seem to do anything with it. I don’t know what happened to her, but it was no accident.

      So, during the time Wagner was supposedly killing his wife, what was Christopher Walken doing? What was the captain doing? The captain says he came onto the deck when Wagner and Wood were having a drunken argument and claims Wagner killed her but he didn’t see it or hear it. He also claims that Wagner and Wagner’s attorney forced him not to tell the police anything.

      So the captain has evidence and refuses, without being threatened bodily harm, to tell the police? Highly unlikely. What was he afraid of..that he’d lose his job? Only later when he wrote a book did he tell this story.

      The police sergeant handling the case at the time for LAPD said that he would never cover for a celebrity or for anyone and that he doesn’t care about status but about human beings. Yes, Wagner was a loved celebrity, but so was Simpson and others of local celebrity who killed family members. Can anyone prove that the police sergeant was bribed? Has anyone even suggested it? No.

      The exact circumstances of Wood’s death aren’t known but, IMO, it was nothing but an accident. Wood was notoriously afraid of the ocean or of any body of water. If a person with phobias has been drinking and falls in the water, panic ensues. That’s what happened. She was a small woman, it would take but a minute or two to drown. Tragic but not murder because there’s no evidence of murder.

      And what “new” evidence can there be? Christopher Walken as a witness to something that happened 40 years ago? Very very odd.

    • I think this essay basically says that our Intel agencies grew larger than the President, and now realize they need his protection as CEO.

      The Intelligence agencies’ pressures on President Trump to block the House of Representatives’ decision to release a summary of the FBI’s highly classified misdeeds are instructive comedy. The House’s decision shows what no one should ever have doubted: the FBI, CIA, etc. are not the source of authority over America’s secrets. They merely administer secrets and clearances on behalf of the one and only authority over the Executive Branch: The President of the United States. He clears them β€” not the other way around. Congress, as a co-equal, popularly elected branch of government, may hold or release such information as it chooses, and pay such attention as it chooses to the President’s opinions. Thus far, the Constitution.

      Our Intel agencies, our Deep State, has been bigger than the POTUS for many decades.

      No more. Nobody’s pulling Trump’s strings.

    Unrolled thread from @Imperator_Rex3 #FakeNews #MAGA

    Re: The Memo and the FBI comments

    1. The FBI statement will be remembered as a strategic masterstroke by Trump. He can now release the unreacted memo plus ALL supporting evidence, unredacted and declassified, to the public. And this is key: he can do it without being attacked as partisan, or obstructing justice

    2. Consider : Trump COULD do all this unilaterally as POTUS. But Trump knows full well that if he did this, he leaves himself open to a savage, unrelenting attack by the media. Therefore, Trump’s strategy : create conditions that DEMAND him to release the memo & evidence.

    3. The FBI statement does NOT object to the memo being released. This is important – and deliberate. It alleges that there are facts omitted from the memo that affect its accuracy. Implied is a request : ‘Mr President, can you please supply more facts to improve the accuracy?’

      eah, I’ve been noticing both yesterday and today the MSM’s bowing to the inevitable and ratcheting up their efforts to explain how the memo’s a work of Republican partisanship by a Trump-biased Republican. We’re told it doesn’t mean anything since it wasn’t a bipartisan work, how its conclusions are flawed as the items used to justify the ‘inquiries’ by Federal agencies were also verified by other intelligence and LEA (though their inquiries/results are classified), how releasing this flawed piece of political theater will decrease public trust in the FBI (???) and other red herring attempts to mislead the public.
      The Left knows this memo will hurt when it’s released so they’re out desperately trying to spin the narrative and cushion the blow before it hits. If Trump can clean out JUST the FBI and return it to a nonpolitical investigative agency instead of militarized political enforcement tool.

    Small thing. I was watching one of the cats sitting in the window ledge and looking out into the back yard. He was in full ‘sitting vertical stretch’; ears, whiskers and nose all pointed and converging on something and he was making little mew sounds. I looked out the window and walking across the lake shore at a moderate pace was a goodly size grey fox, large field rat hanging from its mouth. Things calmed down as the fox disappears into the brush and woods to the west.
    About 5 minutes later we’re back to the mew sounds, I look out the window and there’s a smaller second grey fox moving across the lakefront in the same direction, rat in mouth. So it looks as if I’m down two rats and plus two foxes. Can’t help but wonder if they’re a mated pair and I now have a family in the making.

    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.
