He's at another rally..and here is a pic of some of his supporters:

Obviously he feels he is losing at something, so is having another quick ego fix of applauders.

That shirt wearing dickhead is from this group:

I DO like the way Rachel is having fun with Russia Gate..

Just saw her segment about the WH knowing Flynn's Turkey background, and she tells it, she grins,
and pauses, for effect, then asks ever so innocently "why would they lie about that?"..and fade to black.

Just cracked me up.

She has been doing some great stories, and breaks them down so even the most unaware viewer will understand what's going on.

Alabama Judge:" a white city may secede from its racially diverse school district."

She said she was protecting black students from white people's anger.
Jus' helping out and all that.


The ruling by the Birmingham U.S. District Court allows the city of Gardendale, Alabama to secede from its larger, diverse school district to create its own. Gardendale is 88% white and wealthier than most neighboring cities. Its removal from the district will drastically reduce funding to the public school system.

Judge Madeline Haikala said the secession was racially motivated, that it could hinder desegregation, and would “assail the dignity of black schoolchildren,” but still ruled in its favor.

The Judge’s weak excuse was that blocking the ruling could cause angry white parents to blame black students, and that parents should have a larger say in how their school district is set up.

In the town that I live in, back in not too distant past, the whites with money moved to the south of town, away from the mixed race city school district. They built houses, and when they had enough people to vote, they became a separate town, while sending their kids to a private academy which is
still, technically, within our city limits.

Schools are funded from the State General fund, not property taxes, unlike many other states.


Citing health issues, Jason Chaffetz takes immediate leave from Congress

According to CNN:
Chaffetz to miss 3-4 weeks for surgery

He made the announcement on Instagram, saying the surgery was to remove hardware that had been inserted into his foot after an accident 12 years ago.
"My recovery is expected to take three to four weeks," the Utah Republican said. "I'm sorry to miss the important work we are doing in Washington. This is not an opportune time to be away but medical emergencies are never convenient. I appreciate my constituents' patience and understanding as I take time to recover."

White House report of call:

Robert M. Pirsig, Author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Dies at 88

Robert M. Pirsig, whose “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,” a dense and discursive novel of ideas, became an unlikely publishing phenomenon in the mid-1970s and a touchstone in the waning days of the counterculture, died on Monday at his home in South Berwick, Me. He was 88.

Mr. Pirsig was a college writing instructor and freelance technical writer when the novel — its full title was “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values” — was published in 1974 to critical acclaim and explosive popularity, selling a million copies in its first year and several million more since. (A first novel, it would be followed by only one more, the less successful “Lila: An Inquiry Into Morals,” a kind of sequel, in 1991.)

The novel, with its peculiar but intriguing title, ranged widely in its concerns, contemplating the relationship of humans and machines, madness and the roots of culture.

Todd Gitlin, a sociologist and the author of books about the counterculture, said that “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,” in seeking to reconcile humanism with technological progress, had been perfectly timed for a generation weary of the ’60s revolt against a soulless high-tech world dominated by a corporate and military-industrial order.

I loved that book, so much so that I kept giving copes away. Reading it was an an intense experience.


Theresa May would fire Britains nuclear weapons as a first strike if necessary,

said Defence Secretary Michael Fallon.

Michael Fallon said the Prime Minister was prepared to launch Trident in “the most extreme circumstances”, even if Britain itself was not under nuclear attack.
