Sorry for the lack of updates.

Currently putting the finishing touches something viewed as environmental commentary regarding climate change,  spectacle, reunions, and bringing Spielberg’s arrival.

The unfortunate events in Charlottesville have exposed a different climate change.

In the 90’s, white supremacist groups were marginal. I remember going to the statehouse and seeing a small group of nazi’s shouted down, and eventually beat up. David Duke was never a serious presidential contender. True, Timothy McVeigh blew up a federal building.  White supremacists pulled off terrorist acts however they were mostly fringe.

The events leading up the 2017 destabilization of America have obviously utilized racist tactics.

missing from the racist monuments conversation:

During the healthcare debate, the House of Reps approaved 1.6 billion dollars for a border wall.  Hopefully, after viewing Charlottesville , we don’t have to put the burden of stopping this racist insanity strictly in the hands of John Mccain and the Dem’s in the Senate.

 

Danzig Knocked Out in AZ

The President has managed to insult the foreign terror victim’s leader in London.  Probably because the Mayor of London’s name could hopefully piss-off American racists. Remember, the President’s travel ban did not include countries who actually committed the most terrorist acts. The travel ban was for countries who aren’t in business with his companies.

The President has not addressed the growing amount of hatecrimes by white racist terrorists against American Citizens.    Of course, he hasn’t addressed a racist murdering someone from ROTC.  The president has no honest regard for the Military. Remember, the President mocked John Mccain’s valor in Vietnam? I just finished reading super-editor, Sir Harold Evan’s, “Do I Make Myself Clear?” book. This book uses edits, lists, and examples to guide efficient writing. Harold Evans’ examples include David Foster Wallace detailing the toture, and sacrifices Mccain made in Vietnam. Wallace’s essay demands us to internalize —– even after toture, McCain didn’t accept a status release until POWs who were captured before him were freed.

Everyone plays the tough guy until things jump off.  Reminds me….

I have to go, but Russians did attempt to currupt the software used for our presidential election.

 

Things Said

Flynn is pleading the 5th. If they didn’t give him immunity then perhaps the combination of convicted Russian mobsters who rented from the President,  James Comey’s firing, disclosing Intel, things admitted publicly which Sally Yates referred to as “press accounts,” the President’s twitter and be honest…how many things like this exist already in the records?

The President Putin Americans Last

Obviously, I work from the opinion that if there is a likleyhood the President will be impeached because he worked with a foriegn power to destablize our country.  The idea of passing anything he wants put into policy, or confirming a Supreme Court justice he presented is just not long-term thinking.

The following information should make anyone with sense put a hault to allowing the president to do anything but prepare his resignation speach.

He is doing aweful things with the power the Russians gave him.  The slogan “The President Puts America Last” holds true.
