The Trump Administration is just one big colossal Potemkin

In politics and economics, a Potemkin village ... is any construction (literal or figurative) built solely to deceive others into thinking that a situation is better than it really is.

Russian-Hacked Election Results were not Born in the U.S.A.

They are illegitimate and will always remain so. They are #FakeResults.

We are being fed a daily pile of Lies to coverup this Treason.

Resist! Remove! Repair!

All they have done since Jan is illegitimate! All should be REVERSED!

Home well water systems

I'm pretty good with these things. But I want to diagnose correctly from the start, so I don't burn out the backup spare controller and switch.

A few days ago, I think it was Tuesday or Monday, the GFCI flipped while the toaster was running. Very unusual. Hasn't happened in 10 years. So I pushed it back in and all was fine.

Today, my well pump won't turn on. Totally separate circuit mind you, but I'm thinking a short in the well system could have pulled current and flipped the toaster GFCI?

Anyway, the well fuses are ok, though I do have spares and can replace them to be sure. The pressure tank reads 4 pounds, slightly more than when I turn off the system and drain it for sediment.

The oldest parts of the system are the wiring (41) and the bladder (18). Frankly the bladder is due or overdue. Could that be the problem? Would a ruptured or clogged bladder cause the switch not to turn on at 30 pounds?? yet still allow the water to run down to empty? I think unlikely.

So I'm going to examine visible parts of the wiring, including under the well cap, and see if anything. Test the switch, perhaps remove it and look for clogs.

I'm thinking the problem is in the controller or the pump. But the pump (very very light use) is only 6.5 years old and so is the controller and switch.

Thanks for any ideas. It's going to be a dry weekend here!

The Mayor


Late on Thursday afternoon, a bombshell dropped inside the normally extremely tight-lipped investigation office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Peter Strzok, a veteran FBI counterintelligence agent, was suddenly transferred from the Trump-Russia probe. An official announcement said Strzok was transferred to human resources at the FBI.

“I’ve never heard of an agent being moved to the human resources department.” Asha Rangappa, a former FBI counterintelligence agent and associate dean at Yale Law School, told the Business Insider. “I have seen instances where if some issue comes up, the agent might be moved to another investigation or to the operations center, where you essentially field calls all day, but why he would be moved to HR is just bizarre,” Rangappa said.

Strzok was not just a superstar inside the FBI working on some of the Bureau’s biggest counterintelligence cases, he was also involved in last year’s botched FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails.

~~~~~~~ Snip

Giuliani does indeed have close ties to the NYPD and the FBI in New York. He and Prince both actively worked on behalf of the Trump campaign while peddling the Clinton e-mail stories. Giuliani was a top surrogate and even considered for the Attorney General job and was involved in writing the Trump Administration’s “Muslim Ban”.

The day after Comey’s letter on the Weiner e-mails, he went on radio and admitted to discussing the case with active agents. “The other rumor that I get is that there’s a kind of revolution going on inside the FBI about the original conclusion [not to charge Clinton] being completely unjustified and almost a slap in the face to the FBI’s integrity,” said Giuliani. “I know that from former agents. I know that even from a few active agents.

If Steele’s assertions are true, it could explain why the FBI took so long take act on the Trump information Steele had collected. Now that senior FBI investigator Peter Strzok who helmed the Clinton e-mail investigation has been relieved of any counter-intelligence duties, it’s worth asking if the Office of the Inspector General has indeed turned up evidence to suggest elements in the FBI and the NYPD had been working to interfere in the election campaign on behalf of Trump and against Clinton and did the former hero Mayor of New York have a role?

The Zapruder Film - NEW FINDINGS

Researchers never sleep, as the years roll by they just keep digging. The film is from 2015, though I rarely visit the issue so its conclusions are novel to me. It traces custody of the Zapruder film from the time Zapruder had it developed in Dallas to a couple of days later, based on surviving evidence of the time period and interviews over ensuing decades. This video was made by a member of the Assassinations Review Board and concludes the film known to the public for 50 years is different film from the original.

A Private War

President Trump’s plan to privatize the war in Afghanistan would enrich three of Trump’s key financial donors and plays into Russia’s military objectives.

In September 2007, Blackwater armed military personnel, guarding State Department officials, drove into Baghdad’s Nisour Square and opened fire, killing 17 people and injuring 20 others. Blackwater worked for the US as a “contracted” private army (there were as many as 160,000 contracted personnel operating during the Iraq war). Blackwater guards worked outside the normal military command of the military and the House Oversight Committee would later reveal the firm was engaged in over 195 unprovoked attacks in a 9 month period in 2014.

As a result of the Nisour Square massacre, Iraq terminated Blackwater’s license to operate within its borders. Four Blackwater employees were tried and convicted in U.S. federal court; one for murder, and the other three of manslaughter and firearms charges.

Peter Singer, a former Brookings Analyst would later write, “When we evaluate the facts, the use of private military contractors appears to have harmed, rather than helped, the counterinsurgency efforts of the U.S. mission in Iraq, going against our best doctrine and undermining critical efforts of our troops. Even worse, the government can no longer carry out one of its most basic core missions: to fight and win the nation’s wars. Instead, the massive outsourcing of military operations has created a dependency on private firms like Blackwater that has given rise to dangerous vulnerabilities.”
