    I hope everyone had a peaceful and enjoyable holiday. I have not posted in a while but I am here everyday. Also want to say that I received my Pete Souza book on Friday, it is gorgeous and ”heavy” in every sense of the word.

    Merry Christmas and many thanks, Nerdy, and Happy Holidays – near and far – to everyone in TODville!

    From the Irish, and for Chips:

    This Christmas may you have …

    “Walls for the wind
    And a roof for the rain,
    And drinks bedside the fire,
    Laughter to cheer you,
    And those you love near you,
    And all that your heart may desire.”

    Hello after two days of Christmassing in Seattle and Tacoma. We had a White Christmas this year. Half the family in attendance this year after last year’s sixteen in Munich followed by my daughter’s wedding in Salzburg, Austria. The almost one year newlyweds could not come here this year since their first baby is due the end of February.
    Got Pete Souza’s Obama Portrait book, the new Michelle Obama in pictures book, and Jody Cantor’s Obama book. I don’t think the giver knew the Jody Cantor book was not a positive book. Got some other gifts too, but we all know which ones count most. Hee hee.

    Obama’s Christmas tweet is much more popular then Trump Christmas tweet. Don’t tell Trump. Happy Holidays.

    Good Morning, I hope everyone is fully rested after yesterday. Just a quick note, if you have not read the comments on Pete Souza’s book on Amazon, please read a few especially the one by Gingerbread. Have a great day everyone, I can relax as it is a holiday here today.

      I bought two of the “Dream Big Dreams” junior readers for two of my grandkids- stunning books. My hope is to get his ‘adult’ book & the book on Michelle Obama for myself.. they’re on my wish list 😉

          oh MissPat that is the kindest offer, you are lovely and thank you so much… however my son has promised both books to me very soon- Pete Souza’s President Obama book and our First Lady’s book also… so I am hopeful that I’ll receive them both soon. Again, thank you so much for your sweet offer. Happy Holidays to you & your loved ones.

      Same here: I got Hillary’s book about the campaign and Joe Biden’s book! Can’t wait to read them. I’m also going, with GGail, to meet Pete Souza on Jan 17 and will get his book (signed by him hopefully) so this New Year will start with a bang.

          I did. I read it in 4 hours on Dec 26th. Some of the best 4 hours in my life. I found it interesting, emotional and sad that this highly qualified woman was cheated out of the presidency.

    GA TODville.

    Hope everyone had a good Christmas, and will have time to this week to gear up for the new year.

    This isn’t the best PBO article, but a couple of morsels of goodness:

    Link to article (l like the photo The Guardian selected for their article):

    Separately, there’s a group of tweeters who are obsessed with uncovering FUBAR’s ties to organized crime (specifically Russian for FUBAR, but evidence seems to indicate that Manafort has been mobbed-up since the Reagan Administration)…

    Attempting to figure out how the mob figures into associates and members of this monstrous administration is a very deep rabbit hole, but here’s a tweet I like:

    Another speculation floating around Twitter has to do with the missing Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos’ billions (and the Las Vegas shooting, if you can believe it — my research has led me to conclude that there’s a sinister link between Las Vegas and Whitefish Montana, but of course, this is speculation — however, there are just. too. many. coincidences…)

    Here’s an article from June 2016 (and I think the $10 million is a low estimate):

    FBI Software For Analyzing Fingerprints Contains Russian-Made Code, Whistleblowers Say
    In a secret deal, a French company purchased code from a Kremlin-connected firm, incorporated it into its own software, and hid its existence from the FBI, according to documents and two whistleblowers. The allegations raise concerns that Russian hackers could compromise law enforcement computer systems.

    The opposite of “Unity” is “Division” and division is one of the weapons the oppressors have used for ages to divide us mentally and physically.

    The more ‘united’ we are, the ‘stronger’ we become. The more ‘divided’ we are, the ‘weaker’ we become. Today’s Kwanzaa principle [Umoja] is an opportunity for me to remind global Africans [Blacks] to do all things necessary to unite and stay united!

    Although Kwanzaa is a African American holiday
    …this principle of UNITY/UMOJA is sorely needed today in America….

      GA Dr. Bob.

      The editorial from the Salt Lake Tribune got me to thinking (another rabbit hole, unfortunately 😦 ) about media ownership — which seems to following the greed trajectory of our current state of “democracy” — aka owned by those who already have 99% of this country’s wealth and wants to keep the status quo for their children at the expense of everyone else who *isn’t* related to themselves.

      I don’t know the political leanings of Jeff Bezos and the Boston Globe owner, but it seems clear that Digital First Media is right-leaning (based on the locations of their news footprint):

      So on to the current palace intrigue involving the grotesque monster currently occupying the WH, Orrin Hatch, our Ambassador to Russia, and R-money (#NoTermMitt):

        More speculation about R-money (#NoTermMitt) in the US Senate, and how he’s viewed by Russia.

      His faith is so important. Most people who’s faith is important try their best not to lie. If you do someone wrong, most people apologize. Most people who’s faith is important to them try to be low and humble, most people who’s faith is important to them care about those who are hungry, poor, sick, in prison. Most people who faith is important to them are not sticking up for Nazis, KKK, White Supremacists.

        Faith in lying, stealing, cheating, golfing, being a narcissist and all round empty human being. These people must really think their followers are dumb when their has been NO pictures of him going to church. The closet he got to doing anything religious was holding his hand on the Bible being sworn into office.
