Foreshadowing from British history??

I read somewhere that in the 19th century in Engand it was against the law to publish what was discussed, voted on, and decided in parliament.

I do not remember where I read this, and I do not know if it is true. I have always found this bit of info immensely chilling.$

Tulsa policewoman, acquitted in death of black man, resigns

Lawyer says she was working in a small cubicle with little interaction
with officers or public. He states she was 'meant to be a beat cop.'

Today's Female Profiles in Courage

There are a LOT of women speaking truth to power,

ATTN!! Delta continually separates gay couple

This was reported today at bilgrimage.blogspot.com.
William Lindsey and his partner of over 40 years
booked seats together on Delta out of Little Rock.
When they got their tickets before boarding, they
found Delta had separated them. This pattern was

Each time they booked seats side by side, but each

separating them. Delta has given them the run-around
each of the several times they tried by mail and phone
to get an explanation.
Lindsey also reported some funny busness with his
laptop in the airport while he was posting this info on
social media.

Pour in overwhelming amounts of money into US
(in both meanings of the word)

Insight into Trump and lighted ball

Everyone has seen the weird picture of Trump, Saudi leader, and lighted ball. Then I saw this video on Youtube 'Ecco Il mondo... Samuel Ramey in Mephistophle'. 'm sorry, I don't know how to link on my tablet. Mephistopheles plays with the ball/world and taunts the people. Interesting to compare the 2 scenes.
