    “Private Mariea Sabate of The United States Park Police Horse Mounted Unit combs the countryside searching for suitable horses to join the force in Washington. She’s frequently found exceptional candidates from the Middleburg area. One of her favorites was a former racehorse donated by Middleburg’s Zohar and Lisa Ben-Dov, Pacific Blackout. “He was a prince with the heart of a lion,” she said. The dark bay was bred and foaled in Florida April 8, 1997 and his racing career included 12 starts. He won twice, was second twice and had one third-place finish, with total earnings of $29,680 before he was injured….

    …Sabate, 51, joined the mounted patrol in 1991 and rode another Ben-Dov horse, Rebel Command, on the C & O Canal until 1997. They were then selected to move to the Training Barn at Edgewater Stables in Rock Creek Park and thus, she became the first female officer at the barn and its first female instructor. “I’ve been training horses and officers ever since, “ she said. Sabate grew up in the Washington area, riding at the public stables in Rock Creek Park and said “I’d ride anything. “She knew horses would be her life. As a spectator at the Washington International Horse Show, she watched Park Police Sgt. Denis Ayres compete in the North American Police Competition, and he became her mentor. Ayres, now 82 and retired, continues to ride on weekends with Sabate along the 19 miles of trails in Rock Creek Park.

    …The Park Police mounted unit was established in 1934 and is one of the country’s oldest police equestrian units. It also includes the K-9, SWAT, Marine, aviation and motorcycle divisions. Sabate has turned down any promotion in order to remain with the mounted unit. Her meticulously schooled equines and their riders have donned riot gear to control Occupy Wall Street protesters in Mac Pherson Square and rowdy crowds at the World Bank meetings. She also patrolled the perimeter of the White House 12 hours a day for months after September 11, 2001.”

    EXCLUSIVE: I got a hold of some pics of AMK’s work atire 😎

    “Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s monogrammed suit which he wore during US President Barack Obama’s visit to New Delhi in January will be up for auction starting Wednesday in Surat. District Collector Rajendra Kumar told reporters Tuesday that 826 items will go under the hammer — these include 465 gifts that Modi has received as Prime Minister. The remaining 361 items being auctioned are those gifted to Chief Minister Anandi Patel….

    ..Proceeds of the auction of Modi’s gifts will go to the Namami Gange (Clean Ganga) project. Money raised from Patel’s gifts will go for the education of the girl child. Rajendra Kumar said: “This evening, we got information from Gandhinagar to hold the auction and exhibition… the suit with Narendra Modi monogrammed on it, which the Prime Minister wore at a meeting with US President Barack Obama, will also be displayed and auctioned.”

    Chelsea FC has suspended three people from attending its ground after a video appeared to show club fans stopping a black man from boarding a Paris train.

    Life banning orders will be issued if there is deemed sufficient evidence of the fans’ involvement in Tuesday’s incident, the football club said.


    guess only a personal confession by their racist ‘fans’ would be “deemed sufficient evidence”.

    re: amk’s message to 99ts. Bringing a couple of tweets over from the previous thread:

    Storm has made landfall and is heading south (i.e, towards Brisbane — didn’t 99 say she lives south of Brisbane?).

    From the article:
    “Queensland’s new Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk warned residents in nearby towns to prepare for a ‘harrowing and terrifying experience’ and implored them to ‘not go outside under any circumstances.'”

    “It will be the second cyclone to hit Australia in less than 24 hours, with Cyclone Lam making landfall early Friday morning in the Northern Territory. It is weakening as it moves inland.” (see article for a map of the two cyclone locations.)

      He’s digging the hole deeper for himself…

      We Obots deeply feel the pain and loss of Ann Dunham at such a young age, 52 — what we wouldn’t give to have her live to experience PBO’s election in 2008.

      But the way the GOP drag the Obama family to try to disguise their bigotry (e.g., birtherism, etc.) is not civilized. Ann Dunham would be free to speak her mind, in much the same way that Lillian Carter and Barbara Bush were/are allowed to do.

    Computer maker Lenovo has been forced to remove hidden adware that it was shipping on its laptops and PCs after users expressed anger.

    The adware – dubbed Superfish – was potentially compromising their security, said experts.

    The hidden software was also injecting adverts on to browsers using techniques more akin to malware, they added.

    Lenovo faces questions about why and for how long it was pre-installed on machines – and what data was collected.

    The company told the BBC in a statement: “Lenovo removed Superfish from the preloads of new consumer systems in January 2015. At the same time Superfish disabled existing Lenovo machines in the market from activating Superfish.

        Giuliani obviously doesn’t know the definition of anti-colonialism. Or….colonialism. I would imagine PBO is anti-colonialism. Why do people even listen to Rudy? Let’s just spell his name “rude”

      Saw this earlier, and thought who thinks colonialism (i.e., raping and pillaging the land and the locals) was a good idea?

      But I guess the 24% of Americans who think the sun revolves around the earth would like to the US resurrect Colonial times (though their forebears would likely disagree).

    Rudy Giuliani Invokes 9/11 To Reinforce His Claim That Obama Doesn’t Love America
    Giuliani: “President Obama Didn’t Live Through September 11, I Did”

      Maybe someone should invent a machine that will allow Giuliani to freeze himself in the 9/11 timezone, so he can continue to live out what he seems to believe was his shining moment. It doesn’t occur to him that the families of the many first responders whose lives he ruined because of his ineptitude on that day don’t need reminding from him of that horrific day. He’s a horrible little man.

    Dear beautiful TOD people and fellow Obama fans,

    One word: BENIGN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CanadaBarb4Obama asked me to thank you for your good thoughts and prayers after a couple of requests here on her behalf, because all of her biopsy results following her surgery read: BENIGN!!!!!!!!!!! She got the word today. I may be totally tipsy by bedtime, “on her behalf”!

    May I interject with your indulgence that I also humbly ask for your good thoughts and prayers for my own family member again at this time, awaiting some new test results and whether or not surgery will be needed. Thank you very much. There’s a lot of power coming out of your soft hearts and I’m not hesitant to try to get in on it! ❤

    Three more words: Oh Happy Day!

    The police might have to step in soon… this is assault. B Mac pulls a half-tracker for another four, then belts another six over extra cover. If he did defend one, he’d only be doing it to take the mickey. That over goes for 20.
