Agree.

Except about Nikki Haley being smart. After reading Bolton's book, which is full of insults about her intelligence (and some clues in A Very Stable Genius as well), I'm not as sure as I used to be about that.

But she's smart enough to refuse this "opportunity." Or somebody around her will tell her not to accept.

Nah. I'm going to cling tightly to the Progressive channel on SiriusXM

and DU, and listen and see people make fun of the RNC convention.

Tip for people with SiriusXM: You can listen to that shitshow on SXM without giving them the ratings, because SXM has no way of telling who is listening to what.

Why did they bother?

It isn't as if there are no "issues" to ask him about.

I'd ask him, "Do you and your dad bond over the fact that you're probably going to prison just like he did?"

"Jared, how in-debt are you? Has MbS offered to underwrite Deutsche Bank loans to you? What have you promised him in return?"

"Jared, what did you think of that fabulous Lincoln Project ad excoriating your wife?"

"Jared, how much advance knowledge did you have prior to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi? Did MbS tell you himself beforehand, or did you hear it directly from one of his top deputies?"

"Jared, didn't General John Kelly laugh in your face when you asked him to obtain for you a Top Secret security clearance?"

"Jared, isn't it pretty ridiculous that you have a Top Secret security clearance when you flunked the vetting process more than a dozen times? Aren't you a national security liability to our nation?"

"Jared, how about that plastic surgery? Are you attempting to alter your appearance before fleeing to Saudi Arabia?"

"Will you be taking Ivanka with you, or leaving her behind to fend for herself?"

I'd like the RNC to let Milo Yiannopoulos speak, and I'm sure

he'd drop more than a few F-Bombs. The RNC is getting so deeply down into the bottom of the barrel that it wouldn't surprise me if he's a "special guest". Alex Jones is another extreme crackpot I'd like to see make a "surprise appearance." Roger Stone could show off his tattoos while encircled by Hell's Angels doing the "Hokey Pokey."

Remember this surprise from the El Chapo trial?

Former Mexican President Peña Nieto Took $100 Million Bribe, Witness at El Chapo Trial Says

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/15/nyregion/el-chapo-trial.html

The former president of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, took a $100 million bribe from Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the infamous crime lord known as El Chapo, according to a witness at Mr. Guzman’s trial.

The stunning testimony was delivered Tuesday in a New York courtroom by Alex Cifuentes Villa, a Colombian drug lord who worked closely with Mr. Guzmán from 2007 to 2013, when the kingpin was hiding from the law at a series of remote ranches in the Sierra Madre mountains.

“Mr. Guzmán paid a bribe of $100 million to President Peña Nieto?” Jeffrey Lichtman, one of Mr. Guzmán’s lawyers, asked Mr. Cifuentes during cross-examination.

“Yes,” Mr. Cifuentes said.

Mr. Guzmán may offer more details soon. Shortly after the jury was excused around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Mr. Lichtman submitted his client’s name to the prosecution as a potential witness for the defense, confirming that the drug trafficker might testify in his own trial.

KICKING in case someone here knows of a connection between

Larry Ellison and Kanye West!

Also, how might they intend to use Tik Tok?

Also, remember, Trump thinks some of the money from this acquisition should go to the United States treasury?!? Bill Gates laughed this off, but since Larry Ellison is 'true believer' in Trump, Ellison might go along with that outrageous and illogical idea.

A convoluted theory

Trump supporter Larry Ellison (Oracle co-founder) suddenly appeared out of nowhere two days ago and made a bid on Tik Tok, trying to usurp Microsoft's attempts to possibly buy it.

This makes me wonder if Kanye has been brought in by Larry Ellison.

Something really screwy might be going on.

I'll try to find some links and add them here.

Also, this is just a theory.

In my opinion, this is suspicious AF.

Robert Trump is the only Trump that's going to lie

in state in Washington D.C.

I think when Trump passes, they should just stick his body on the golf course at Mar-A-Lago.

This will be macabre. Will Trump give a eulogy? Do you think

he'll remember to mention Robert Trump?

I was talking to my mom about this dilemma. What I said was that

I feel compassion for the thirteen year old Donald Trump, but that those feelings are completely separate from the issue of his dangerousness to our country and our planet, and that my priority had to be removing him and holding him accountable for his crimes. And I think we can appreciate the awfulness of growing up in that household but still appreciate his fundamental brokenness and dangerousness.

But I get where you're coming from. My mother was interested in how I reconcile my activism and anger against Trump with being a Buddhist. There actually is no contradiction, but it's not easy to explain.

Robert Thurman, Uma's dad and a practitioner and teacher of Buddhism, has written about this issue and the compatibility of feeling compassion and anger simultaneously for someone who is a threat to humanity. I sort of have to block out my compassion when I'm in the heat of battle, as we all are now.
