On Sunday Morning Futures, Maria interviews PRESIDENT TRUMP!
It seems I was seeing old SMF Twitter posts!
I haven’t a clue as to what’s on Sunday Morning Futures today...
Morning AB, All. As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably and keeping the peace with gentle thread policing. Thank you Bray for weekly written wisdom, Thank you Rodguy for fishing tales and political perspectives from all angles, Thank all yon contributors for excellent commentary to flesh it all out.
Below are the words from my daily political diary. It is quite long so scroll on by if not interested. But do stay around and add your commentary and point of view to the thread.
PRESIDENT TRUMP BUYING GREENLAND
I think the news that Trump might be buying Greenland to be quite amusing. Of course all the Trump haters went bananas with this news. Mockery and snarkiness abounded. Bear in mind that they laughed at the guy who purchased Alaska and it was a great idea.
Essentially its a large real estate deal. A lot of things can be done. Its hurting Denmark very badly because they're losing almost $700 million a year carrying it," he said. "So, they carry it at great loss, and strategically for the United States, it would be nice. And, we're a big ally of Denmark and we help Denmark, and we protect Denmark."
Trump said he may be visiting Greenland in the near future, but claimed the issue was not a top priority for the administration.
UNITED KINGDOM EXITS THE EUROPEAN UNION
I have been listening to the torture of the United Kingdom trying to get out of the European Union as the leaders flip the people the bird and ignore what they want.
Because if the elites in America are Deep State with perverts servicing their need for young girls, the Elites in Europe have had a lot of practice.
So theres a new guy in town in England and finally he did what the loser-burger former British PM could not do.
Because the people voted it out. The United Kingdom did not want England et al controlled by Brussels any longer.
This and Hong Kong are the beginning of the people taking back their power.
The 1972 Act is the vehicle that sees regulations flow into UK law directly from the EUs lawmaking bodies in Brussels.
The announcement of the Acts repeal marks a historic step in returning lawmaking powers from Brussels to the UK. We are taking back control of our laws, as the public voted for in 2016.
The repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 will take effect when Britain formally leaves the EU on October 31.
LOUISIANA GOVERNOR DURIING HURRICAN KATRINA DIES
I got a special place in my heart for former LA Governor Kathleen Blanco. She was LAs Governor during Hurricane Katrina.
She was awful.
In fact, Hurricane Katrina was handled so horribly by all the politicos involved, to include President Dubya Bush, that I created a whole Blog dedicated to my granddaughter.
ITALY PRIME MINISTER RESIGNS
I dont know much about Italy and its government. I do know that Italy and England joined forces with our marvelous and glorious FBI to help set up a spy ring inside the Trump campaign.
Now thats not ALL of Italy, or England, or Australia as has been mentioned. But perhaps they too have wonderful federal police forces and spies that will carry out the wishes of their elite rulers.
But that will not put these countries in good stead with President Trump who no doubt who did what to who.
We have Hong Kong fighting to keep its freedom. We have England throwing out whatever that dip wads name is who couldnt do Brexit even though the country voted to get out from under Belgiums thumb.
These people are beginning to fall.
Because the common people, the ones who carry their country on their backs, are going to get their countries back.
America will soon throw over those lovely folks in our FBI, the ones I respect and admire so much but Hillary loves them more.
By the end of this year, I predict.
Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has announced he will resign after his populist government lost the support of a key coalition member.
Mr Conte accused Matteo Salvini, leader of the right-wing League party, of trying to ruin the ruling coalition for personal and political gain, risking financial instability for Italy.
JEFFERY EPSTEIN WRITES WILL TWO DAYS BEFORE COMMITTIING SUICIDE.
See? Right there is proof that Epstein committed suicide .pshaw on those who think he was murdered.
Epstein listed his assets and I suspect that much of it will be divided up amongst his many victims.
Frankly I dont care HOW Epstein died. I am just glad hes dead. Be kind. The man burns in hell even as you read this.
Bloomberg) Jeffrey Epstein wrote a will just two days before his suicide, saying he had about $578 million in assets that he placed in a trust, which could complicate efforts by women who say he sexually abused them to collect damages.
Epstein, who died Aug. 10 in a federal jail cell in Manhattan, asked that Darren K. Indyke and Richard D. Kahn be appointed as executors, according to a copy of the will filed Aug. 15 with the court in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
All of his assets were transferred to the trust as of Aug. 8, two days before he died, assuring that details on how the proceeds are distributed may remain private. The will was first reported Monday by the New York Post, which also published a document detailing Epsteins fortune in real estate, cash, equities and other assets.
No links, could be missing some info. But below, political snippets that slipped into my ear and some of it I kept in my brain.
Trump attacks Fox and NBC. It was this past Sunday that Trump went on a rant against Fox cable news. Lets see, he said Greg Gutfield used to talk bad about him, he lambasted Chris Wallace. Oh and Scarimucci, Trump had little nice things to say about him. I heard Scarimucci was terrible the entire eleven days he worked at the White House.
And yesterday he launched into a tirade of NBC, said they were worse than CNN and thats not saying much, Trump ended is tirade.
Kaepernick is BAAAAAAACK!
Asking footballers to join him on his knees.
He doesnt even play football. Was terrible at it.
President Trump cancels trip to Denmark because of Greenland.
Been reading about this Greenland noise and discover that it is all about CHINA! Seems China wants to mine some kind of rare earth found in quantity in Greenland.
Oh, and also read that the Vikings named Iceland because it is really green and lush. They named Greenland that name because its covered with ice.
The Vikings wanted to fool people.
Seems the Denmark Prime Ministress said the idea of America buying Greenland is absurd. This evidently made Trump mad so he cancelled his trip.
Denmark .KING OF THE EARTH!!!
You got to know if you need to have your doctor appear in public and declare that your brain is fully functional then you maybe shouldnt be running for president.
But there you have it. Joe Bidens former brain surgeon shows up on the scene and tells us, to our utter relief, that Bidens brain is just fine.
I was so worried.
Also I heard from many sources that Biden promised President Obama he would never run for President. The Obamas are nowhere near on Bidens side.
Why DO Jews vote Democrat?
President Trump said that Jews who vote Democrat are on the wrong side.
My understanding is that most Jews do vote Democrat and hey, why?
And now those two lovely Muslims are so fair and fine to Israel.
Lets watch next election and see if the Jews get a clue.
Cartoon of week
JIMMY CARTER, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER
The dog days of August begin to come to a close. Congress is off and even the politicians are quiet.
The only news to this day is the revelation that Jimmy Carter has liver cancer and it has spread. The medical deduction should be his death is close.
Jimmy Carter is not young. He has lived a fairly long life, in his 80s I think.
He was the worst president this country ever elected.
First, there was the Iran-Contra crisis. Iran, always a friendly and loving country, took a whole bunch of Americans hostage. The very day Ronald Reagan was elected Iran released the hostages.
Now Carter did try to send in Americans to rescue the hostages but like every thing Carter did, it was a complete failure.
Then there were the wonderful gas lines, Lord how we loved those. Gasoline was in shortage and there were gas lines across the fruity plains. I remember having to get up an hour early just to sit in a long line to get gas.
And goodness, how can we forget the 18-20% home mortgage rates. Carter shut off anybody who didnt already own a home, essentially, when the interest rates rose to eliminate their ability to pay. I remember standing in my own home, which I did own at an interest rate of around 8% at the time. I remember thanking God that I purchased my home before the interest made such a thing prohibitive.
After his presidency Carter traveled around the world, best buddies with the sweet and kind Yassar Arafat and all other dictators of the world.
Okay, so the man has cancer. I should be nice.
But let it be known that he was the worst president ever.
POLITICS BY PAT
SOLUTION FOR FORGETTING NAMES
Not much going on in this part of the woods save the fact that I constantly forget everyones name. anybody got any cute and efficient ideas to remember the names of those people around you that youve know for a few years.
EVEN THE ROMANCE SHOWS HAVE GIRLS WITH GIRLS AND BOYS WITH BOYS
It used to be that shows such as Bachelor/Bachelorette, Big Brother , Bachelor in Paradise were exclusive the home of romance between a male and female.
That was their purpose, to have us silly girls out here across the fruity plain to see handsome dudes meet up with pretty females and boom, kiss and fall in love.
One can tell how the times are changing in that Big Brother this year has two guys who sleep in the same bed together. Its only hinted that they have a bromance going on but goodness, a few years ago the females like me would snap off the TV at the notion of two men together in the same bed on one of our favorite romance-type reality shows.
And in Bachelor in Paradise this beautiful female cant decide if shes in love with her female lover she left back home or with one of the guys on the show who are smitten by her. Her name is Demi, very pretty female.
The guy who is smitten with her never makes any wise cracks about Demi and her female lover. Guys out here in the real world would be cracking up, making jokes, day-dreaming about Demi and her female friend. On Bachelor in Paradise the guy Demi likes is always serious, saying it doesnt matter if Demis other love is male or female .yada, yada.
Folks, out here in la-la land the fact that Demi has a female friend, even though the word lesbian has not yet been mentioned .well the fact that Demi might be a lesbian would be of utmost importance to any guy interested in her romantically.
On this romantic reality show, Demis male love interest is very blasé about the situation.
I find it all very unbelievable.
PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETS CHINA TO START BEING FAIR
Let us begin with the fact that after all these years as a political junkee I had no idea China was NOT being fair. Further, today I just found out that China is a member of the WTA, World Trade Association. Hell I didnt even know there was such a thing. Oh Id see some reference to WT in some news story about economics and figured there was some group out there that oversaw such as shipping, etc.
Now I have a president who is telling all the secrets and it must be why they hate him.
More .I dont think Trump tweeting out his admonition to China that they need to stop manipulating their currency, stealing intellectual property and cheating on tariffs was a coincidence that he let out a flow of criticism on Friday.
Naturally the stock market, which starts to fall should flies be found on the ticker tape, begins to drop. But on a Friday emotions tend to get better over the weekend. As of this writing, 2:00 pm on 8/23/19, the stock market is down about 400 points.
I have my entire 401K invested in the stock market. I am a bit nervous. But it will come back.
They will be fair. Its not too much to ask all members of the WTA to be fair and abide by the rules.
And what a bunch of wimps live in Germany and the rest of Europe that they never demanded fairness.
Cartoon of the week
Thanks for thread A.B. OMG, Cindy McCain to bemoan Songbird’s absence? Surprised Mittens is not on with Dingy Harry to discuss their new team to beat Trump.
All you need to know is Potus is trying to reverse 45 years of our economy bleeding out, and rich folks are squealing.
Is Cindy McCain about to become a Sunday Morning Talk Show fixture just like her late husband???!!!
Is this a sign that she intends to position herself to run against Mark Kelly for the Senate?
Wonder what Martha McSally thinks about this emergence and what her reaction will be??
Oh, it's the 1 year anniversary of McPain's death.
Last year tomorrow, August 25th was the worst day of my life. I lost my hero. I miss my father every single day, I will for the rest of my life. Grief is omnipresent and relentless. For every single person who has sent prayers, love & support to my family, we are truly grateful pic.twitter.com/3kaPTTGJHf— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) August 24, 2019
Maybe will have to change this thread from the “Sunday Morning Talk Show Thread” to the “Driveby Sunday Morning Get Trump Thread”!
“It’s called FUR-NITURE, isn’t it?”
Thanks for a cheerful start to this Sunday.
He wants to DESTROY the NFL. Especially since potential team owner JayZ "betrayed" him.
Note to current players:
You do so, and you'll lose it all. Another round of this BS will end the NFL and your careers in it.
You live in the most racially-fair country in the World! Don't belief the BS.
Just a few thoughts re the events of the past week if I may be indulged.
On my weekly post I mentioned Jimmy Carter was very sick. Then a day later I read, on FreeRepublic coincidentally, that Carter will be participating in building new houses for Habitat for Humanity. How can he do that if he’s dying of cancer?
Folks, I am serious about this Joe Biden thing. Of course politically I am not on Biden’s side although you must smile, he WAS my state senator for a few years. But this guy is really losing it. Or has lost it one may think.
But he forgot he was in New Hampshire and called it Vermont? Not knowing the state you are in, that’s pretty serious, no?
Then there’s his hands all over kids and he never stops. And goodness, this is weird, his own wife told us to swallow hard and vote for the guy.
Please don’t let this guy get elected my President. I don’t think he’s a joke. I think he’s really losing it.
Finally I chanced upon a debate of sorts right here on FR about Epstein’s “victims”.
Bear in mind that the fine and holy Jeffery Epstein wrote up his will and no doubt much of his money will go to victims.
The debate on FR involved those thread commenters who suggested that many of those females knew what they were doing, many , if not most, willingly participated and there was money involved.
Big arguments followed as often happens on a controversial thread but it made me think.
I am quite sure that those young girls, and bear in mind that most of them were in their late teens, of legal age but very young and I do not admire creeps like Alan Dershowitz who jump on an 18 year old even if, technically, she is of age.
But there is something to be said that these females often willingly went with these men, probably for money.
This thing about everybody on this planet being a “victim”....it gets old.
This is not to say that any of these men pass my admiration test. Most of them were married. Many likely used taxpayer funds to get to Epstein’s famous island. And there were probably quite a few underage females and some rapes.
But there was some strange circumstances in that matter and we will soon find out that some of those “victims” had a choice and they took it.
I would rather spend 3 hours in line at the NYC Dept of Motor Vehicles in the middle of August. That said the comments on this thread are always top shelf!
I can tell you AB that if I chance to see one football player take a knee I will refuse to watch another NFL game....ever.
It’s the only way to stop these people.
Oh, and the Ravens got a football player on Dancing With the Stars...forget his name but he’s been a lot of trouble.
And Dancing sure is taking a lot of heat over having Sean Spicer dance.
The show host, a dumb bell, apologizes, tells the world it wasn’t it his idea.
What the hell is wrong with having Spicer dance? Because he worked for the Trump administration?
I roll my eyes in disdain for these people.
King Charles IX of France, under the sway of his mother, Catherine de Medici, orders the assassination of Huguenot Protestant leaders in Paris, setting off an orgy of killing that results in the massacre of tens of thousands of Huguenots all across France.
Kind of like the Jews, hounded by a lot of people from a long time back
All of his assets were transferred to the trust as of Aug. 8, two days before he died, assuring that details on how the proceeds are distributed may remain private.(that's because it's all cabal) The will was first reported Monday by the New York Post, which also published a document detailing Epsteins fortune in real estate, cash, equities and other assets.
Actually as you would suspect there is always more to the story and who has it down any better than George Webb:
It's here in an FR freepmail I sent earlier this week:
Operation Cassandra—drugs flown into NM at Zorro Ranch—owned by Epstein
| 08/24/2019 5:00:05 AM PDT sent
George Webb: drugs flown into Zorro ranch in NM owned by Jeff Epstein. It's all Dyncorp related and being flown in from Central America historically it's operation Cassandra.
this involves Les Wexner as well.
Money is laundered through the dnc as political contributions,whew!!Done through Mark EpsteinJeffs brother whom I started researching last week just on a hunch,paid off, for a long, long time.Wow where does Webb get all this sh!t!! I cant believe it. Historically, it was CIA operatives run by Bush 41,Humble oil going back to Prescott Bush, 41s dad, he was in on it too. King Ranch in on it as well.Zorro ranch is in the middle of king ranch owned property.King ranch biggest ranch anywhere.
Epstein did it through Dyncorp training missions, uranium transferred as well.
This one video is truly kick-ass.
All I can say is wow!!
Webb terms all this Awan-contra.
Pretty much sums up that Epstein's escapades with Ghislaine Maxwell were little more than elaborate cover for the real smuggling operation that has been going on for decades all the way back to the Central America days when using the Dyncorp corp.as more cover they flew drugs from Central America into New Mexico,and everyone who was anyone knew what was going on.Just another reason why Epstein would never have seen any jail time.
Also is it possible Epstein is not dead never even got on the plane that left Europe and it was a double that was killed in the NYC jail?Inquiring minds wanna know....
A few other tid bits the Bloomberg piece says Darren Indyike was on of the lawyers who is incontol of Epsteins estate,but they left out a few pertinent details.
Namely that indyke is Jeffery Epsteins brother Mark lawyer and has been forever.
Mark supposedly in the art business is into a hell of lot more than just art.
The Art is probably one of the ways they launder all the smuggling dough along with the DNC which laundered some of the money as campaign contributions,which gave them a huge advantage over anyone who had to go out and beg for campaign contributions which is not as easy as it looks.
Dems are so corrupt it boggles the mind.
can tell you AB that if I chance to see one football player take a knee I will refuse to watch another NFL game....ever.
Its the only way to stop these people.
Oh, and the Ravens got a football player on Dancing With the Stars...forget his name but hes been a lot of trouble.
And Dancing sure is taking a lot of heat over having Sean Spicer dance.
The show host, a dumb bell, apologizes, tells the world it wasnt it his idea.
What the hell is wrong with having Spicer dance? Because he worked for the Trump administration?
I roll my eyes in disdain for these people.
These points all help me validate why I haven’t had cable or any paid tv service for 17 yrs.
The noise, the stress, the drumming down, even keeping track of what and who is on tv...I don’t even like my Cincinnati Bengals...
Yesterday, as a substitute for tv, I had an extended version of Debussy Claire de Lune play for an hour...some take all these diet things for body cleansing...that hour was an “ear cleansing”...
Oh well, I’m just different.
Have a great Sunday...I’ll read the other posts when back from service.
