Below are the most recent stories-
DH and I had no idea this happened, and we were very politically aware at that time.
“Rex Tillerson took a moment at the UN Security Council to remember Soviet officer Stanislav Petrov, who bravely called a false alarm when all computer data told him the US had launched nuclear missiles at the USSR at the height of the Cold War.”
A Police Officer Who Shot Minority Male Sends QB Colin Kaepernick One Item He Will Not Forget – Jethro
Today, President Trump responds by accepting the reluctance of the NBA player and telling him not to bother:
On Friday, if I haven’t had a chance to listen earlier in the week, I spend my early hours playing 4 suite spider solitaire and listening to as many policy wonks and other important speeches that I missed. Some are predictable, many have surprising bits of info.
The linked video at CTH is USTR Robert Lighthizer discussing the status of various US trade agreements, (the history of trade under various presidents is highlighted), and President Trump’s views as well as his own. It’s a down-in-the-weeds, wonkish look at some of the problems under old agreements and gives a great insight to the problems of trade with China and others.
This link (below) is Secy of State Rex Tillerson responding mainly to questions about NoKo, Syria, etc. I cannot say how much I admire this SoS and his ability to command our ship of state. You’ll get a laugh out of one of his responses to a typical lunkhead who doesn’t understand national security.
There was also a press briefing this week by Steve Mnunchin on the specifics of Trump’s EO on trade restrictions that is worth listening to. It’s on CTH/YT as well.
“Conservatives excel at zeroing in on abuses like Hillary’s email account, the Rice unmasking and the Benghazi cover-up, but falter when it comes to exposing the motives behind them. And so the investigation of the abuses quickly vanishes into a thorny thicket of alibis, technical legalities, cover-ups and licenses. And a baffled public reads about hearings that delve into acts rather than motives.
It is vital that we understand not only what Rice did, but why she did it. It is important that we expose the pattern of misconduct, not just the individual act.
The future must not belong on those who spy on Americans to protect Islamism.”
Nanny on video decides to “gobble” down breast milk intended for the child. She blamed her anemia when confronted.
A company, hired for the purpose of finding leaks in the DNC’s security, receives a payment of around $100K less than 24 hours after a suspected leaker is murdered. On two separate occasions.
With “luck” like that, I’m surprised Crowdstrike hasn’t invested more in Powerball tickets.
Hoax perpetrators have something in common with Rahm Emmanuel: they never let a serious crisis go to waste.
It’s fiscally a wreck, but physically? Just do what you feel like its goverment has done with the bailout money and tax dollars. Who decides what a ‘gender identity disagreement’ is? Brussels?
Just some fun with what you can do with wires and weights; I’ve seen stuff like this also done with water alone. Is that 80 characters?
