      There’re too many SJW in EEO offices throughout the government. How long will it be before they “behave”? May have to fire a few of them before that happens.

    When the professional whiners start in and of course we all get frustrated, remember this in relation to the all out obstruction of democrats. Truly pathetic the President Trump had his first full cabinet meeting the other week etc etc. . The last sentence tells it all…..


    Struggling to make progress on campaign promises like tax and health care reform, rank-and-file congressional Republicans are stepping up calls for their leaders to cancel or at least shorten the upcoming August recess.

    The GOP agenda is about to enter a summer slump amid internal disagreements and efforts by Democrats to sideline legislation.

    These efforts will enter a new phase Monday evening when Democrats plan to start slowing down Senate work even more by making speeches and refusing to let Republicans take procedural shortcuts.

      Reminds me of –


      Quotation from Martin Niemöller on display in the Permanent Exhibition of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Niemöller was a Lutheran minister and early Nazi supporter who was later imprisoned for opposing Hitler’s regime.

      Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

      Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

      First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Socialist.

      Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

      Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Jew.

      Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    In pictures: ISIS attacks pro-U.S. militants in southeast Syria, executes eight
    “In addition to that, IS media published several photos found on mobile phones of US-backed militants. Several U.S. military advisers are present on the pictures”

    Wiser heads finally prevail –
    “DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:40 P.M.) – The United States decided to re-position fighter jets belonging to the US-led international coalition, Pentagon’s spokesman Adrian Rankine-Galloway told reporters on Monday.”

    “As a result of recent clashes with Syrian pro-regime and Russian forces, we took precautions to change the disposition of the aircraft in Syria in order to continue fighting Islamic State, while maintaining safety of our pilots – considering the known threats on the battlefield,” he told Interfax agency.”

    Congressional Reform Act of 2017

    1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office.

    2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

    3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

    4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

    5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

    6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

    7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 3/1/17. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and go back to work.

    The entire election process is being deliberately sabotaged to break Americans’ faith in their own democratic process of People Power. Bogus voter registration, end to privacy, hacking the systems by Soros.

      wow. ZDNET and THEHILL reported on this and picked up by Drudge this morning. Here is a take by the BBC: “he huge cache of data was discovered last week by Chris Vickery, a cyber-risk analyst with security firm UpGuard. The information seems to have been collected from a wide range of sources – from posts on controversial banned threads on the social network Reddit, to committees that raised funds for the Republican Party.”

      They used to discharge for pregnancy – they still should. The military is not a jobs program or welfare for single mothers. Their job is to kill people and blow things up. Anything that does not further those capabilities should not be allowed let alone encouraged and financed.

        Agreed. With Contraceptives there is no reason for a pregnancy. Also women should be in support positions only. We are literally NOT built for combat.

    Remember that Intercept article that said Muh Russia was sending phishing emails to election software companies and We’re All Gonna Die?

    Um, no. Another narrative bites the dust.

    “Prominent election software companies say that phishing emails do not present a pressing problem, even though a classified intelligence report recently published by The Intercept indicated that Russian military intelligence had previously targeted one such company.”

    “the security systems currently in place (are sufficient) to protect against such attacks.”

    “If there was cause for concern, the company would read emails in a virtualized OS (sandbox), “thereby preventing all forms of malware from infecting any of our systems”

    Otto Warmbier, American student detained in North Korea for 17 months, dies

    Otto Warmbier, the American student who was imprisoned in North Korea for more than 17 months and was returned home to Ohio last week, has died, his family said Monday.

    “It is our sad duty to report that our son, Otto Warmbier, has completed his journey home,” his family said in part in a statement. “Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20 p.m.”

      This was horrific. Watching his pleading and suffering while that fake trial was being conducted by all those stone faced killers was horrible to watch and I can’t even begin to imagine what it was like for his family.
      Ozero has blood on his hands also since he did not try to help at all. Of course , had Otto been black or Muslim American or refugee or an illegal then he would’ve gone to bat for him . Sad. Thanks to President Trump and T-Rex for bringing him home .

    “Nobody seems to know how Pence discovered where the House Freedom Caucus was meeting. It was March 24…”

    “the door was flung open and in marched Pence. He was accompanied by Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and neither man was smiling.”

    ““I was the Freedom Caucus before the Freedom Caucus existed,” Pence told them, his voice rising…“Don’t try to tell me this bill (AHCA) isn’t conservative enough.”

    “It was the most animated they had ever seen him. And it worked: After Pence abruptly exited the meeting, and several grown men had broken into tears because of the tension present in the room…”

    Recently a discussion involved bank depositors being unsecured lenders, bail-outs and bail-ins.
    As an addendum to it, here is how a Spanish bank is handling a failing-bank scenario – the shareholders lose all their money.

    Considering their poor decisions cause much of the financial problem, this is a fair and equitable solution. I hope the Trump Administration hears of this option.

    “Spain’s Banco Santander is paying €1 to take over troubled rival Banco Popular, in a deal that illustrates Europe’s new system to rescue failing banks without burdening taxpayers or stressing markets. This is being cheered around the world because the shareholders lost absolutely everything. The bank which was valued in the collapse at €1.6 billion was bought for €1. Forbes wrote:

    “This is an excellent example of how the resolution of troubled banks should be done. The shareholders who employed the management which caused the problem lose all their money. The depositors, who were and are not responsible for the bank’s troubles, are protected.”

    “The sale is “in the public interest as it protects all depositors of Banco Popular and ensures financial stability,”

    Did we know Venezuela had withdrawn from OAS?

    “In April, Maduro’s Foreign Minister Delcy Rodríguez announced that Venezuela will be withdrawing from the OAS after 65 years, viewing the hemisphere’s premier diplomatic venue as an arm of a campaign in pursuit of regime change.”

    “Tillerson cancelled his attendance at the Organization of American States’ 47th General Assembly, which is convening in Cancun, Mexico, on Monday.”

    ““The Secretary of State will continue his efforts to de-escalate tensions in the Middle East region through in-person meetings and phone conversations with Gulf and regional leaders,” the (State) department said. It said Tillerson has “made more than a dozen phone calls and participated in several in-person meetings.””

    “The statement marked the first confirmation from the U.S. that Tillerson, who has met with top officials from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in recent days, is formally trying to mediate a solution to the feud.”
