Ha..I found the fake bill signing pics...


He faked the recent bill signing and I remembered he had the same look on his face in a previous "I'm a serious important person" stunt.

Remember these?
( He had a stunned Lloyd Bridges look going on in the first one .)

Another "soon to be a collector's item", perhaps for the RW relatives?

Trump has also denigrated the sacrifice of service members from all the Coalition countries


whose citizens died in Iraq and Afghanistan

Before Trump, there was this guy:

Trump admitted to "mobster" connections

During a 2004 panel at the Museum of Television and Radio, in Los Angeles, Trump claimed that “every network” had tried to get him to do a reality show, but he wasn’t interested: “I don’t want to have cameras all over my office, dealing with contractors, politicians, mobsters, and everyone else I have to deal with in my business. You know, mobsters don’t like, as they’re talking to me, having cameras all over the room. It would play well on television, but it doesn’t play well with them.”




From this very good article about Mark Burnett

Merry Christmas, DU !!.. I hope y'all might find this as lovely of a gift as I did.


Both Johnny Mathis and Bjorling do this carol to perfection, I think. This is truly timeless, recorded 56 years ago.




What Trump did when people tried to tell him the law about inauguration spending

Michael Lewis's book The Fifth Risk recounts some of Christie's transition efforts in 2016 before Trump won the election—and then literally and figuratively trashed every shred of work Christie had done. Keep in mind that party nominees are legally required to form transition teams. Trump didn't want one but Christie explained he must have one and he could either pay for it himself or pull from campaign funds. Trump refused to do either, so Christie was forced to fundraise for the committee in order to pay its hundred-plus staffers.

Trump almost entirely ignored the transition work until he read an article reporting that Christie had raised several million dollars toward the effort. That's when Steven Bannon walked into Trump's Trump Tower residence to find Christie getting an earful from Trump. Lewis writes:

Trump was apoplectic, actually yelling, You're stealing my money! You're stealing my fucking money! What the fuck is this?? Seeing Bannon, Trump turned on him and screamed, Why are you letting him steal my fucking money? Bannon and Christie together set out to explain to Trump federal law. To which Trump replied, Fuck the law. I don't give a fuck about the law. I want my fucking money.

Bannon and Christie tried to explain that Trump couldn't have both his money and a transition.

Shut it down, said Trump. Shut down the transition.

That book is my night time read this evening.

Incredible story of how Trump, the Russian Fertilizer King, and Saudi prince MBS, are linked.

Russian-American historian Yuri Felshtinsky describes how the sale of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting “Salvator Mundi”/“Savior of the World” helped President Donald Trump to get out from under $95 million debt that he owed Dmitry Rybolovlev, Russian billionaire and President Vladimir Putin’s henchman, leading back to Kushner and his friend the Saudi Prince, and why Trump hired Wilbur Ross.

This is a long article. It ties everything all together, I found it very gripping. Those of us who like deep dives with lots of details will be rewarded.

*&#!!*#!! ,,Walgreens just bought the 3rd pharmacy in town.


They just bought Fred's pharmacy stores, the lowest priced place to buy prescriptions.around here.

They now own all the pharmacies in our little town but 2...Wal-Mart and a private local drug store.
(Wal-Mart has reduced its cheap generic drug offerings by 2/3.)

Walgreens has faced numerous lawsuits for discrimination in hiring,
*and for violations of the federal Anti-Kickback Statute and the False Claims Act regarding Medicaid beneficiaries ,
*and for violating RICO laws re: price fixing.
* fined 80 million for dispensing massive amounts of oxycodone.

Wal-Greens charges more than twice the going price for drugs. .

Since we are 40 miles from the interstate on-ramp, then 90 minutes from any large city ( think Mobil, or Montgomery)
Walgreens has a captive customer population in all the small rural towns.

Anyone have good experiences with online drug stores?

Anyone here know WHICH hotels Memaie ran up bills at, despite no overnight stay???


During a day trip to Toronto last year, Melania Trump spent about $174,000 in hotel bills, Quartz reported.

Though the First Lady did not spend the night, federal spending records show six separate hotel charges that added up to eight times what it cost to house the team who traveled with her, the news source reported.

Trump’s schedule on Sept. 23, 2017, showed that the trip spanned about 12 hours: She arrived in Toronto around noon, met with Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau around 6:30 p.m., and left just after midnight, Quartz reported.

Earlier this month, Quartz reported that during an October trip to Cairo, the first lady racked up $95,000 in hotel charges. She stayed for six hours and didn’t stay the night then, either, the news agency reports.
