  • Vanity: So, Is the Tony Bobulinski Story Dead?

    This story doesn’t seem to have picked up any steam in the last few hours. A google news search shows about four reports on it worldwide over the past 6 hours. I suppose the media will be able to ignore it with wall to wall debate coverage today. Sorry for the vanity all, I just thought this story might have more legs. An unnamed source Fox reported on just named himself. Surely Fox would cover that right? Maybe I’m just being impatient? Does this NOT seem like as big a deal as it seems to me? Anyhow, here is the...
  • What George W. Bush Plans to Do About Trump

    George w. bush doesn’t like Donald Trump. He doesn’t like how Trump is behaving as president. He clearly doesn’t like the division in the country Trump has fostered. He knows American democracy is under threat. He has tried to be reassuring, telling people that America has survived rough times before—a way of using insistent optimism to diplomatically acknowledge the rough time the nation is going through now.

    "I love Australia," he continued. "Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts." The star then added of a potential move, "If Trump is re-elected – which he will not be; I’m predicting right now he’s gonna lose – if by some happenstance he should be, I’ll see you on the next plane," Springsteen stated.

    The sources of the Russia investigation should, as a matter of basic accountability, be established and disclosed. But no one who is not already a Trump voter cares about dubious investigatory decisions from four years ago. Nor is anyone as exercised as the president about critical things said about him on cable-TV programs. Trump has waged a low-intensity campaign against masks, for no good reason. By setting himself against them, largely on aesthetic grounds, Trump further opened himself up to charges that he doesn’t take the virus seriously — even before his illness and the White House outbreak.

    Only one Democrat other than Joe Biden has experience running for president against Donald Trump, and she’s not quite over 2016, or confident that Biden will be able to do what she couldn’t. Hillary Clinton has been in lockdown like everyone else. It feels like Groundhog Day, she told me Wednesday afternoon. But existential exhaustion looks different for a woman who has spent the past four years thinking about the final month of the 2016 election—and who worries that Vladimir Putin, disinformation, and our deep political divides will still threaten American democracy even if Biden wins. In many ways, Clinton...

    LINDSEY VONN'S two dogs had to be taken to the vets after they chased a PORCUPINE. The Olympian's beloved pooches were left with sharp quills impaled in their faces after the incident. Vonn, 35, regularly shares pictures of her three dogs called Lucy, Leo and Bear. Lucy, who once joined her on the ski slope, managed to keep out of trouble this weekend. But Vonn's other two dogs decided to try their luck against a porcupine - and soon regretted it. The three-time Winter Olympic medallist - who dated Tiger Woods for two years - shared a photograph of the...

    THESE incredible pictures show two love rival frogs battling it out in an epic struggle to win a female mate. The ten-inch male bullfrogs have been caught fighting for a mate in this RARE spectacle that only happens once a year. A dominant male was photographed with its legs in the air as it grabbed the other male by the neck. The keen lover pulled the other frog off its feet and down under the water. In another image, the same male bit down on his competitor’s leg as the weaker frog tried to make a run towards the safety...

    In the wake of the FedÂ’s promise of 23 March to print money without limit in order to rescue the covid-stricken US economy, China changed its policy of importing industrial materials to a more aggressive stance. In examining the rationale behind this move, this article concludes that while there are sound geopolitical reasons behind it the monetary effect will be to drive down the dollarÂ’s purchasing power, and that this is already happening. More recently, a veiled threat has emerged that China could dump all her US Treasury and agency bonds if the relationship with America deteriorates further. This appears...

    A nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize is far from a guarantee that Donald Trump will become the laureate in Norway, a country generally chilly to his cause. A member of parliament for the Norwegian populist right-wing, anti-immigration Progress Party, said on Wednesday he had nominated Donald Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The lawmaker, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, cited Trump’s role in brokering an agreement normalizing relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Together with another politician, Tybring-Gjedde has already nominated Trump for the Nobel in 2018 for his rapprochement with North Korea. That reconciliation is now in limbo....

    White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Tuesday tried to walk back an attack from President Donald Trump on the nation's military leaders in which he claimed "the top people in the Pentagon" aren't happy with him because he wants to get the U.S. out of wars while they are beholden to arms dealers. Meadows told White House reporters Tuesday morning that he had spoken with Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper and other top officials, claiming they know Trump's striking comments Monday weren't aimed at them.
