A bit of clarification of the implications of the prior post.

Trump wonders if his supporters will "demand" that he serve three terms.

I sure hope he keeps focused on that third term.

He also thinks the NY Times committed treason for running a story that it looks like his administration okayed:
https://time.com/5607955/trump-new-york-times-russia-treason/?utm_medium=socialflowfb&xid=time_socialflow_facebook&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=time

And his military leaders are keeping details from him of their efforts to rein in Russia, for fear that either they will be told to stop or he will simply tell Putin about it.

Just another day in paradise.

Quote
"You present compelling evidence that we have a real problem. You present compelling evidence of inaction by the other branches of government. It may even rise to the level of criminal neglect," Hurwitz told the children's attorney in a Portland, Or. courtroom yesterday. "The tough question for me—and I suspect for my colleagues—is, do we get to act because of that?”

At the time Horwitz thought the plaintiffs had sued the government for failing to act to prevent climate change. But their attorney, Julia Olson, swiftly corrected him:


"I want to emphasize that this case is not a failure-to-act case," she said. "The threat here is intensely affirmative.”

In Juliana vs. United States, Olson contends the government has worsened climate change by promoting the fossil-fuel industry, by allowing oil and gas development on public lands, by sharing in the revenues, by working interdependently with polluters, by being "so involved in private activity that it's constitutionally liable."

Order restored in Hong Kong

https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/13/asia/hong-kong-violence-umbrella-intl-hnk/index.html

Temporarily.

As I was saying:
https://www.cnn.com/asia/live-news/hong-kong-protests-june-16-intl-hnk/index.html

Quote
Close to 2 million people descended on Hong Kong's streets on Sunday, Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF), the organizers of the protests, estimate.

According to CHRF, those numbers are unprecedented. Police estimated that the 338,000 people followed the protest's original route.

In a statement released by the group Sunday night, CHRF said demonstrations will continue until the government withdraws the extradition bill in its entirety, releases arrested protesters and withdraws all charges, retracts the characterization of the protests as a "riot" and forces Chief Executive Carrie Lam to resign.

"Should the government refuse to respond, only more Hong Kongers will strike tomorrow," CHRF said.

Just a bit of difference between those two numbers. Of course, neither group has a motive for causing the numbers to be higher or lower. But the photos are quite impressive.

Wow! 55 million and more were without power. Five countries impacted.

Mine? What mine?

Not that missiles are not still a problem.

What does it tell us that the American public have yet to see one shred of credible evidence that Iran directed these latest attacks?   Pompeo and Bolt-head are enemies of truth and reason, like so many in the Washington cesspool.
