      thank you mam! I don’t quite get how anything is going to be changed by the Analytica revelation, unless we do a “presidential do-over” (not a bad idea) in a sense like they do in Britain with no-confidence votes.

        Dee, I don’t expect Trump to be intimidated into resignation, nor do I expect the GOP-controlled Congress to lift a finger to do the right thing.

        My hope is that things like this continue to erode the corrupt foundation on which this sham presidency sits, one indictment at a time, hopefully at least up to the likes of Don Jr. and Sessions.

        In the meantime, I hope we can continue flipping seats and holding off the inevitable attempt to corrupt the midterms; maybe the specter of at least one chamber of Congress under Democratic control will hold the WH in check to some degree.

    The Obamas are blessed and highly favored. They were (and still are) uplifted daily by the prayers and best wishes of millions of people around the world. Their goal always is to improve the lives of others and not just their own self interests. With that kind of motive, no wonder there was no room for scandal in their presidency.

    Hi Everyone! I’ve had my shoulders to the grindstone past for the past few days. Swamped out of my gourd. Took a few minutes to enjoy some music and ran across this bit of loveliness. Have no idea who this wonderful dance group is, but the beautiful music is a song by a band called The Oh Hellos. This is “The Lament of Eustace Lamb.” Enjoy! See you soon!

    Trump won the election by leveraging stolen data from a shady firm and stolen emails from a foreign power. He received $30M from the NRA that might’ve originated in Russia. And Congress might be being blackmailed or bribed to go along with it. This is a criminal enterprise.

      Hi Dudette,

      As a Star Trek fan, did you know that Benedict’s mom, Wanda Ventham, played Col. Lake in the 60’s/70’s series “UFO”? I caught bits and pieces of it as a kid, and now own the full series on DVD. Loved that show with all its color (colour) and fashion!

        Oh wow! Thanks for the tip! I don’t know this show or Ms. Ventham. Weird too, cuz we were back in the States then and I was a tv addict, especially anything sci fi. Maybe the US syndication wasn’t carried in Richmond,VA at the time. Video snippets on YouTube look pretty cool! She must so proud of her crazy, talented son! I adore him! 😀

    From WaPo:

    President Trump’s attorneys have provided the special counsel’s office with written descriptions that chronicle key moments under investigation in hopes of curtailing the scope of a presidential interview, according to two people familiar with the situation.

    Trump’s legal team recently shared the documents in an effort to limit any session between the president and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to a few select topics, the people said.

    Cheating his way to the Oval Office….and his way through life

    Cambridge Analytica’s corruption helps provide the missing piece in this story. If the Trump campaign had a social media advantage, one reason is that it hired a company that mined vast amounts of illicitly obtained data.

    There’s a lesson here for our understanding of the Trump presidency. Trump and his lackeys have been waging their own sort of psychological warfare on the American majority that abhors them. On the one hand, they act like idiots. On the other, they won, which makes it seem as if they must possess some sort of occult genius. With each day, however, it’s clearer that the secret of Trump’s success is cheating. He, and those around him, don’t have to be better than their opponents because they’re willing to be so much worse.

      I really don’t care for it when pictures of them are photo-shopped in any way. They are enough just as they are/were; they need not have any more of others’ wishes imposed on them. One woman had as her screen saver a photo-shopped depiction of her in a natural, the original of which I was very familiar, and I told her it was not real. It is so unfair that the Obamas have to carry so many hopes, dreams, wishes for others to be fulfilled in some way.

        I understand how you feel CEB. I would not like pictures of the Obama’s photo-shopped however if it is a positive image I am OK with it. If it is a negative image I am definitely appalled. The Obama’s in my opinion are OK when people look to them for hope, inspiration, and dreams of being just like them. That is why they meet with young people and they are inspiring the next generation of leaders.

        A pleasure catching up with former US President Barack Obama over dinner today. Mr Obama made a brief stopover here to meet young ASEAN leaders and give a lecture.

        A lot has happened since we last met at APEC 2016 in Lima, so we had much to talk about. Happy to hear that he is busy working with his foundation and other charities. The best part about life after the presidency – more time with family and friends! – LHL

    Judge allows former ‘Apprentice’ contestant’s defamation suit against Trump to proceed, potentially opening him to discovery

    A New York judge cited court precedent that led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1998 as she allowed the lawsuit by Summer Zervos to proceed. Zervos first made sexual-harassment claims against Trump public in October 2016, along with other women at a news conference. She filed the defamation suit after he called the women “liars.”

        There’s NO amount of that BS that would convince me that I’m safer voting for Trump.

        I believe you have to WANT to believe what they’re telling you. I think it’s a form of “confirmation bias”.

        President Obama touched on this a bit during his interview on Letterman’s Netflix show: They REINFORCE your current biases.

        I do agree with the CA guy who said that politicians who were trying to win arguments on facts were going about it wrong, and that it’s the appeal to the emotional core of the issue that’s effective.

        The challenge is…how do you get these people to come in off their emotional ledges once they’ve been put there by either real or fake news?

      Don, It’s been proven many times that Subliminal Propaganda Techniques work. Movie Theatre Owners used this, enticing moviegoers to buy snacks and stuff, until Congress made it illegal.
      There’s also the Stockholm Syndrome…..many on the Right and some Hillary Hates were receptive to these type of indoctrination. Hence, it was quite possible to easily persuade them to act accordingly.

There are SO many people who just don’t understand or have the ability to REASON when you hear B.S. Unsuspecting people think everything on the Internet is TRUE. To this day I see articles that just sound stupid as hell. I see who is putting this garbage out there, Fox, The Hill, Breitbart, some odd organization I never heard of, I take what they say with a grain of salt. I look for AP, WSJ, LATIMES, etc., then I STILL research it because they too have biases.

        When you see educated people spouting crazy shit and I ask them where did you get that? It’s usually Blaze, Breitbart, Fox and I tell them to locate the actual information and read it! My brother reads Blaze and he told me some crap that at the time, DEM controlled house had passed a bill to tax all stock and atm transactions. I looked it up and it was a PROPOSED bill by a DEM House representative that NEVER WENT ANYWHERE. It was not a bill that was sponsored or taken up. I asked him why he left that out and he had NO answer. This was back in 2010. My brother is educated but believes everything he reads on these sites. He like many people like him are fooled on a daily basis.
