      Dick Morris is spot on here. What a thorn in the side of the Beast and The Boar he must be. I wonder if he gave President Trump some information on the Clintons.

    Astonishing photo, Stella.

    My new phone gets here by Monday. 13mp camera, vs. my current 8mp, with quick-focus. And it does like Lightning Camera by default, and takes several photos in very quick succession, and lets you choose the best one. I’m giddy.

    With pardoned Alice Johnson shouting, ‘I love you, President Trump!’ – leftists stew at how Trump outsmarted them
    By Monica Showalter – June 7, 2018

    Only on the left would we see the presidential pardon of a nonviolent drug offender, a cause that up until now has been a Sorosian shibboleth, greeted with grumbles.

      Yeah Adam Sh*t is pitching a fit. It is only going to alienate their far Left Loony base and the democrats are already doing a great job of alienating their moderate base.

      I believe part of President Trump’s philosophy is give them as much rope as they want and let them play with it. Then @%Γ’’SnAp*˝ˆ@# !

    • Lefties want so much to believe the Trump they created in their demented minds, but he isn’t that person at all. More and more people are and will continue to wake up to that reality and the alphabet media will continue their spiral to irrelevance. I say so long and farewell to the alphabets, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

    Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, 61, commits suicide by hanging himself in French hotel while filming Parts Unknown for CNN

    Anthony Bourdain has hanged himself in a hotel room in Strasbourg, France, while filming an episode of his hit CNN series Parts Unknown. The celebrity chef, 61, was found dead by his close friend, French chef and owner of New York City’s famed Le Bernardin restaurant Eric Ripert (left together), on Friday morning. ‘It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,’ CNN said in a statement. Bourdain was married twice, and leaves behind a daughter, 11-year-old Ariane.

      He and Kate Spade. Expect more high-profile suicides, soon.

      Kate was involved with Hillary’s humanitarian/child-trafficking expedition in Haiti, BTW.

      Bourdain was all into going to “exotic” locations, too. Lots of red flags with this guy.


      • Gil says:

        I was wondering what if any notable connections.


      • Menagerie says:

        Suicide is a terrible thing. It is not always the result of risky or bad behavior. Indeed, many people, due to mental illness, cannot even make rational, let alone moral, choices.

        That being said, I believe there are some people who simply refuse every opportunity for help and assistance and would rather be sick, depressed, addicted, or suicidal even.

        I will try very hard to leave the judgement to God.

        There have been times in my life when the burden I carried includes not only my own, but a crap ton of those I love or am trying to help. No, you cannot take away someone’s misery and bear it for them, but using motherhood as an example, there have been times when the bad things have threatened to overcome my family, times when, though the guys would mostly not realize or admit it, I held the family together, kept us from breaking apart and perhaps hating some of the others awhile, or who knows, forever.

        I know at times others have borne that load for me. I will tell you that there were moments during those times when the burden, the loneliness, and the despair almost drove me into the ground. Never suicidal, but damned near dead of heartbreak and near hopelessness.

        My point is this. No one usually knew. And casual acquaintances or even family could have condemned me for any number of weaknesses. They would have been right. And oh, so very wrong.

          None of us know the burdens of another, and I will not judge, nor speculate why this man took his life. I had a friend who took his life, and it was a complete shock to everyone.

          As I often do when moral or faith questions come up…to St. Augustine I go. It’s really comforting to read what conclusions his great mind came to on a variety of issues. And he did write lengthily on suicide, looking at most every aspect.

          This is going to take me a while to read, but I know it will be well worth meditating upon: AUGUSTINE (354–430) from “The City of God” and from “On Free Choice of the Will”….

    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.
