Orrin Hatch: Romney to Remain Retired Rich Guy

Source: New York Magazine

Mitt Romney, an obscenely rich 70-year-old with unfulfilled political ambitions, has decided to continue enjoying his vast wealth and beautiful family rather than grind out a U.S. Senate campaign. So says Utah senator Orrin Hatch, whose retirement rumors sparked speculation that Romney would take another crack at landing a job in D.C.

“I’ve talked to Mitt Romney. He’s not going to run for this seat. I would be glad for him if he would,” Hatch told the website UtahPolicy this week. “I’ve chatted with Mitt, and he’s not going to run for the Senate,” he added.

Mitt undestands Trump has frugged up D.C. for the Republicans; and also knows most run for the Senate to become rich & powerful.

Romney already robbed the masses and has so much power Bain Cap., can't be indicted, no matter how mu h u just enrichment he has gained.


SALON requests we watch Trump/Russian mafia film

Posted a couple of weeks ago, this 45 minute documentary, by Dutch entity 'Zembla', is an eye opener enlightenment about where and how Donald Trump's love affair, with the Russians, began a decade ago.

It is titled....

WATCH: Dutch documentary investigates Trump’s alleged past links to the Russian mob

This is the Salon story link

And this is the quick link direct to the film


It is real simple to understand. When Trump had several entities placed into bankruptcy, he becqme persona non grata to New York lending institutions and readonable interests rates.

Hence, in the wuest to find easy dollars, the Russian (Wall Down) came to the rescue, of the olidarch need to launder money.

This was a decade ago; and the team.up worked so well, Der Drumpf decided he would run for the presidency.


Congress Is About To Confirm Another Former Goldman Sachs Honcho For Trump

Source: HuffPo

Senate Republicans voted in lockstep to behind Clayton, and were joined by 10 Democrats, including Sens. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Mark Warner (D-Va). The Democratic support marked a departure from Mnuchins confirmation, which was opposed by every Democrat except Manchin.

Trump made a slate of promises about Wall Street during the 2016 campaign, including vows to both break up big banks and to repeal the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law. As president, however, Trump has pursued a big bank-friendly deregulation agenda and proposed steep tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy.

Snipes are Snipes against any who have applauds or gripes

Theres a flow that goes out there -"au contrare" - to what or who may care. Doing so in a petty or snide (snipe) way.

You go on Facebook or Twitter, and you talk about someone who did something nice, different, or better than average. Only to have those seek to rwin on the parade, who ain't done so or hate any doing so, come along to swipe at the premise (these are the snipe as hunters).

I'm not allowed to point out Trump lied about draining the swamp, or his love affair with Goldman Sachs, or how a guy is holding up a sign, with a MAGA hat on his head, with the sign saying - "I made a big mistake" - without a 'snipe' coming along and saying how pathetic a human being I am for even mentioning a person who voted for the guy.

Isn't it a good thing the person admits his vote was wrong?

For 16 years I've endured 'snipes', even from progressive side' telling me I'm a pain in their ass, fighting Romney & Goldman Sachs. A prominent lawyer at DK, kept saying Mitt left in 1999, and that I was lying. He had a brigade of followers who said I'm CT over and over again. And it pissed me off that purported progressives were defending Romney, just to snipe at me.

Then, when Obama pointed out the same facts I contended, were true (and his campaign websites followed or friended me) ...instead of apologizing for being wrong, they attacked me more...and Bojo'd me for fighting back.

Or - if I point out a former female veteran joining African Park Rangers (who are getting killed) - than I'm a wretch who the petty & snide snipes say supports the NRA.

Haters who constantly ruin the message you seek to make note of (cause familiarity does breed contempt).

Snipes going around, just like a lawyer's gang, finding fault with anything you say, just because they like being miserable and hate you're the one pointing out a good thing.

I gave up my membership in gun club, and my markmenship awards - decades ago. Doing such long before it was popular....because I despised the thpughts that came, when anger arose.

Snipes or not, I greatly applaud the female Veteran putting herself on the line to stop poachers who kill Park Rangers.

I applaud the person who puts out a FB pic, of himself, noting he made a big mistake, voting for the arsehole Trump.

And I will never stop fighting Sachs or Bain

No matter how many 'snipers' are miserable and have nothing better to do, then to tryto make it rain, on a parade; because someone thinks people are arseholes for pulling all those flowers...just to make a dam float.


Lawyer representing United passenger takes on American Airlines

Source: Reuters

Reuters) - The lawyer representing Dr. David Dao, who was dragged from a United Airlines plane, said he will also represent a woman whose clash with an American Airlines flight attendant went viral over the weekend.

Thomas Demetrio told CNBC on Monday that he will represent both passengers whose recent confrontations with airline and airport employees sparked global outrage and prompted a nationwide conversation over U.S. carriers' treatment of passengers.

"Her tale is compelling. The video is a microcosm of what's wrong with the airline industry today," Demetrio said in an interview with CNBC.

In a video posted on Facebook on Friday by a bystander aboard the American Airlines flight, the woman is seen in tears and holding a young child after a male flight attendant had apparently wrested a baby stroller from her.

What a CROCK: A crocodile hunter gets eaten by crocodiles

Just when you think there's no ying & yang balance in the world, the guy (Scott Van Zyl) who sold a guarantee hunters could kill 9 fifferent species, winds up on the menu.

According to Yahoo News

Man who made his living killing African wildlife gets eaten by African wildlife

Scott Van Zyl made his living taking wealthy clients on “safaris” for the sole purpose of bringing home trophies like leopards, zebras, wildebeests and even lions. Now, investigators in Zimbabwe believe that Van Zyl ended up on the wrong end of the predator-prey relationship, and DNA tests have confirmed that he was attacked, killed, and eaten by crocodiles while on a hunting trip.

Tisk Tisk .....but Karma is bliss!

Teacher sells jewelry for students sake

In our current unpredicatable world, looking as if gone mad, with ebols surrounding U.S. within and throughout, such ugly times cries out for relief. Thus I'm overjoyed Rubina Cook brought me this story of altruism; which is a welcomed respite.

Annapurna Mohan sold her jewelry to supply her class


Walk into the Class 3 English class taught by Annapurna Mohan at this school in Tamil Nadu’s Villupuram, and you’ll have trouble believing that you’re standing in a government school.

From an interactive smartboard to colourful and comfortable furniture to the stacks of English-language books, this classroom in the Panchayat Union Primary School (PUPS), Kandhadu seems as fine as any in a well-funded international school. And what’s more, the students speak crisp and clear English, as fluently and comfortably as if they’ve been speaking it all their lives.

But the students of this classroom are fortunate to have had Annapurna Mohan for a teacher, She has not only struggled hard to build her students’ language skills, but has even sold her own jewellery to create the kind of classroom she feels her pupils deserve.

I think it would be very cool, if someone here, started a Democratic Underground cloud-funding effort, for U.S. to send Annapurna Mohad, a blessing for her class; because others might do simiar - elsewhere.

.......I'm in to start it off some $$$

Indiana cleans up voter lists; purging 10 to 20%

According to TriStar News, Indiana voter rolls are now purged of invactive voters, purportedly to comply with state law.


Rolls purged of invactive voters to meet state law
Vigo County trims about 10 percent; Parke County lops nearly 20 percent

Cleaning up the state’s voter registration lists stems from action from two voter watchdog groups, Judicial Watch and True The Vote, which sued Indiana in 2012, claiming the state failed to maintain clean voter registration lists. Their lawsuit was dropped in June 2014 after the Indiana General Assembly approved changes to election laws.


The emphasis is colleges and people who purportedly didn't vote since 2014 (wonder if that lists includes people who were denied their vote)!

You can bet your bottom dollar the list purges more Dems and Indies than GOP.

Just sayin.......
