      I’m counting the days from Epstein’s death until we see the autopsy report. 8

      All media said the same thing “suicide by hanging” and then quickly provided/promoted the Ghislaine Maxwell in LA with book, 😮 whatever can the message mean, narrative shift.

      2 questions for Barr “who has/is in charge of the autopsy report” and “when are you going to release it?” 😮 and maybe a 3rd “are you going to declassify sometime in the next decade”.

        Kel. Quit worrying about Epstein; the coroner already knows what happened. If he was murdered and we weren’t told up front, it’s more evidence of the corruption in gov’t. It LIED by releasing what would then be a garbage report. AG would be in on “it” as he publicly took an interest in the circumstances. The “it” is aiding and abetting of that murderer.

        If it really were death by Suicide, AG doesn’t have to spend any more time on it. Waste of time either way as everybody wins. Epstein’s grievers are accomplices and grieve only because they’re next, the criminal(s) have escaped (again), but more children are spared the sex abuse and law enforcement no longer has to “wonder” where is Jeffery right now? And yes, we’ve been left out again. So quit caring.

          I would like the detailed autopsy report to come out so that interested doctors and anatomists could have the chance to vet the results. If the autopsy report is a coverup, the coroner will be outed. If the details make good sense, she will be cleared publicly by a jury of her peers on the internet. If she did a good honest job, she does not deserve to have a cloud hanging over her forevermore.

          The big win is that Jeffrey Epstein is no more. We don’t even have to worry about the judicial system messing up. Praise the Lord.

And, we didn’t need his testimony anyway – as if he would have told the truth and not merely used it as another grand opportunity for blackmail. We have the mountains of evidence that he obsessively left behind and that he used for blackmail. The investigation is ongoing, and the co-conspirators must not rest easy.

    So if you have yahoo email and log off, you quickly see their current headline before closing (as quickly as possible) the web page.

    I was just watching some videos from the Portland demonstrations. There is violence there. For the past couple of days national and even local media have talked about the evil Nazis and white nationalists while there has been no corresponding condemnation of Antifa which is far more dangerous, far better organized, and funded with plenty of George Soros money.

    While anyone in the conservative insurgency that elected DJT knows, there are absolutely no Nazis or White Nationalists in our movement (note: nationalists and nationalism is most definitely NOT Nazi, white nationalist, or Fascist). Nonetheless, a centerpiece of Antifa and leftest propaganda is that the conservatives and the president are racists, fascists, and Nazis. We are not. It’s worth remembering that both Nazism and Fascism are forms of socialism. They are literally the right wing of the left wing. We are the antithesis of that.

    There appears to be some curious stuff happening with all this drama that is causing me to wonder about the legitimacy of the “Nazis and white nationalists”. I’ve thought for a long time now that what we could be seeing is the work of crisis-actors who are playing a part. Both the Nazis and white nationalists are so irrelevant, so marginal to the American political order that you wonder how their tiny numbers could be this well organized and well funded. Antifa thrives on street-theater and, given their communist dogmas, I wouldn’t be even a little surprised to find that at least some of their street-fighting “enemies” are all on the same side.

      I hope it is all being recorded: Who they are, their communication, the planning of the events. It is a psy ops strategy really. Take something good and associate it with something very very bad and confuse people.

      The unity, the cause, the dedication to spiritual principles and basic human rights that founded our country and justify the purpose that is needed to restore our country are very similar to the purposes that communist and Nazis use to get people to obtain collusion to give more and more power to the dictators.

      With the internet (and I believe this is what was done in 2015-16 to a very large degree, you can shape the narratives that each individual sees on the internet so that one group hates the other and misunderstands the purpose and intent of one person as evil and abhorrent.

      A cure for this is 1:1, face to face relationships. Local communities working together. Family building. Churches with very personal relationships that foster the goodness of people, foster collective growth of goodness and a faith in our Creator. Acknowledge spiritual principles. Commit together to growth together to have a better collective understanding of truth.

    • Garrison, That was my first thought also. I’ve never heard of the “Proud Boys”. I believe that the Proud Boys are an Antifa organized group made to help Antifa look like the good guys. It’s almost a Charlottes Ville style tactic. This creates a narrative for the media to pin the violence on the right.

        Exactly

        Being a “Nationalist” simply means you put the interests of your country, your nation, at a premium … you’re in favor of what’s good for your country. Like someone real smart recently has said: “America First”.

        Now if you’re a white person, being a Nationalist doesn’t make you a “white nationalist”

        Not in the same sense that there were “Black Nationalists” in the 60s who actually did lobby and instigate that there should be a “black nation” run by blacks. I’m thinking Panthers, Malcom X followers, that kinda thing.

        Now, certainly there are a few “white nationalists” who would like the country to be ruled by whites and whites only and would be happy to un-do some of the “diversity” that’s arisen the last half-century or so. But they are few and fringe. Hyper-fringe, I reckon.

        So yeah – I discourage the loose talk about “white nationalists”. If you mean “white supremacist”, then just say that. Even then, them folks are few and fringe as well. I don’t know any.

    Beats replace bombs: young Iraqis revel at summer festival

    Baghdad (AFP) – Hundreds of Iraqi teenagers clapped along exuberantly to techno beats pumping across a makeshift dance hall on Friday night, a scene their capital had not witnessed in decades.

    Iraq has been hit by nearly four decades of conflict, from a devastating war with Iran in the 1980s to the US-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003.

    Sectarian warfare followed, then the onslaught of the Islamic State group in 2014, only defeated territorially in late 2017.

    Friday’s festival was the latest indication that Iraq is entering a phase of relative stability, with blast walls and checkpoints coming down across the capital.

    Restaurants are again abuzz with families and coffee shops full of young people watching cover bands late into the night, something that not so long ago was considered too dangerous because of the risk of suicide bombers.

    When I saw the headline “Iceland holds ceremony for first glacier lost to climate change” I figure that they were REALLY HAPPY that they could grow food, build roads and houses, etc.

    But, according to the Germans, they are really bummed about it because:
    “Iceland has become heavily reliant on tourism which is the country’s biggest industry. The island welcomed 2.3 million international tourists last year, with many visiting to admire its glaciers.”

    SHEESH! The islands I vaca on all have wonderful rain waterfall trail hiking, swimming and snorkling, and you can sip cocktails on the beach while wearing just fipflops, shorts and sunglasses. Who vaca’s on an island to see a glacier?!?

    A little more clicking, I found it really hard to believe that Iceland has more visitors than Big Island Hawaii. Well, from Iceland’s gov tourism Dept, in 2017 (latest # the published) they had 2.1M tourists, 500K from US. Really?

      A subglacial volcano, also known as a glaciovolcano, is a volcanic form produced by subglacial eruptions or eruptions beneath the surface of a glacier or ice sheet which is then melted into a lake by the rising lava. Today they are most common in Iceland and Antarctica; older formations of this type are found also in British Columbia and Yukon Territory, Canada.

      The currency exchange helps $1 US = 123.91 Krona. Iceland is also a relatively safe destination, unlike other EU countries they haven’t had a flood of “refugees”, at least not yet.

      It’s a top destination to see the northern lights as it is visible 8 or 9 months out of the year. They also have a lot of natural beauty, their biggest tourist draw by far. Glaciers, fjords, lakes, waterfalls, mountains, grassy fields, a little bit of forest, hot springs, arctic wildlife, and lots of rugged coastline, as well as whale watching. Interesting history/culture as well, Vikings and Norse mythology.

      Cold weather destinations are not my cup of tea, but my daughter and husband want to see the aurora borealis so we’re looking at Iceland…….hopefully a summer trip, just saying.

    Scotland travel update–spotty internet.

    Our tour guide has referred to POTUS as Mr Trump twice. The first time I corrected him he didn’t hear me from the back of the bus. The second time I was seated further up and twice as loud. He politely made the adjustment and a few people around me nodded in approval. I got a thumbs up and one lady clapped. Heard a few groans too and I could feel the eye rolls. This was yesterday near St Andrews.

      August is festival time in Edinburgh with performers from all over the world. It’s called The Fringe. The name says it all. I’ve seen flyers for plays about POTUS and Ivanka (not +) and there were street performers dressed as POTUS, Boris and Kim. Saw one Make America Gay Again hat. All this is mixed in with regular type street performers and shows.

      I was born in Scotland and and didn’t leave till I was 19.

      We were there last year for the “ Open” at Carnoustie.

      I had many a verbal tussle with a few of the locals, some I had known since childhood. However there are many PDJT supporters too. However, they are often in stealth mode.

      Scotland is a true socialist country, although it is restrained by its connection to England.

      The Scottish Nationalist Party is IMO a communist party, and they govern Scotland. They and their “ Harpie” leader are extremely anti Brexit.

      PDJT was despised by many in Scotland long before he ran for President, the Communists and environmental lunatics. Were at his throat primarily because of a Golf Course development he ultimately succeeded in completing near Aberdeen, Scotland.

      God bless PDJT

      Left to its own devices, Afghanistan will once again start exporting its problems to the rest of the world. I’m convinced that the deep state plan to occupy it in perpetuity is rooted in this belief which is probably true. They don’t want a united Afghanistan. They want it in a state of chaos and division for as long as they can keep it that way. The theory being that while they are fighting US soldiers inside their borders, they aren’t fighting anyone else outside of their borders. And so long as we don’t have a draft and young people keep signing up for the military, then what’s the problem?

      If “victory” were the goal we would have achieved it a long time ago. But that requires killing lots of folks, which nobody in power seems to have the stomach for anymore.

      From my perspective, unless we are planning big action against Iran and are going to use our bases in Afghanistan for that endeavor, then it probably isn’t worth the long term effort. We’ve certainly built enough relationships there to be able to keep tabs on what goes on in Afghanistan for the foreseeable future. Which requires the cooperation of future presidents who might be busy playing golf and can’t be bothered when it’s time to order a missile strike on a priority terrorist target. But such is life.

    Watching the coverage of the Antifa gang in Portland yesterday, it’s clear now more than ever that the Portland Police are the true Nazis – since the Left loves to just throw that word around willy nilly. “They are just following orders!” of their superiors and the Mayor. They don’t care about stopping any of this or keeping the true victims safe – the ones Antifa is chasing and terrorizing and beating in the streets. All the Portland Police care about are getting their paychecks and keeping their pensions. They don’t care about anyone than themselves. It is absolutely horrifying and infuriating to watch this happen in a US city on American soil.

    I am very pro-police. Where I live, the police truly are here to keep the peace and keep us safe. But it’s obvious to me that I am very lucky because it seems like more and more police in these cities are no longer on our side.

      (Bloomberg) — With interest rates on 30-year U.S. debt hitting all-time lows this week, the US government is once again considering whether to start borrowing for even longer.

      The U.S. Treasury Department said Friday that it wants to know what investors think about the government potentially issuing 50-year or 100-year bonds, going way beyond the current three-decade maximum.

        2. The US was undergoing simultaneous inflation and recession.

        4. He inherited LBJ’s social-economic disaster and continuing War effort.
        5. He inherited an unaddressed growth in Soviet aggressive foreign policy, around the world. Plus, China was starting to flex its muscles locally in Asia.
        6. He inherited a nation in social turmoil, where the Radicals even hated their democrat masters.
        In essence, Nixon inherited a situation very similar to President Trump’s. That he was not able to deal with it as effectively, is another discussion.

      Whenever somebody moans about education needing more money, show them this picture and story. It happens everywhere across the US. The NEA and their lemming followers moan about teacher pay, needing more money, poor schools, etc. Money is found and the end result:
      Creation of higher paying administration jobs,
      Raises for administrators.
      Buildings that are not needed or where an existing facility would have worked.
      New stadiums.
      Hire more coaches.
      Fund new worthless testing organizations, because certain “sub-populations” cannot graduate.
      NOT much finds its way into the classroom nor the teacher’s wallet.

      The ignorant, uninformed voters never even question these moves and continue to vote in the same school administrators and government allocating the money never call the school district authorities to account.

      2-3 years ago, the Dallas Morning news was beating the Republicans over the head about funding education. More money was allocated and Dallas Morning News made the mistake of showing a chart of where the money was spent as part of another Republican bashing article. Yet, nobody batted an eye lash because the money was “well allocated” to the right folks. The Dallas ISD always has a major funding scandal running, whenever new money is found.
