Jee, I didn't even know that asshole was in the region.

Poor Beaver County.

The trades men/women trying to actually build the place, don't worry about them. The self made billionaire will pay them for the hours they had to stay on the jobsite, unpaid, after work, so he could have a photo op.

The checks in the mail.

Went to a Tisha B'Av gathering outside of ICE today.

At a non-descript newer brick bldg on South Side, by the Hot Metal bridge.

I'd like to thank the Interfaith Jewish groups who held the service and protest rally today.

The rabbis and the rank and file synagogue members took time to help others, including a lot of catholics. I was honored to participate, and thank them for speaking while my catholic hierarchy remains mum. (Not Pope F., but the ratzinger/jpII appointee, Bishop Zubic.)

It was a nice ceremony and activist event, one of 50 in the country.


I turned out for JVP's event backing moslems in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood, right at the start of Rump's admin. When that shooter shot up the Tree of Life, some Islamic groups offered money, to stand guard during the Synagogue's services, whatever was needed. Now good Jewish people are helping catholics. (There are some protestant converts among the immigrants and refugees, but the population is largely R.C.)

Seems like the way forward. Work with all good people, for all good people, across traditional activist advocacy lines.

Yossarian: You don't stand a chance, kid, they hate Jews.

Clevenger: But I'm not Jewish.

Yossarian: It doesn't matter, they're out to get everyone.

Yeh, but everywhere the camera turns, it captures a backdrop of vistas of smoking wreckage caused by

Rump's leadership and policies.

EVERYwhere.

What possible subject can they bring up that won't arrive in 2 mental steps at the nagging, knawing thought that 'but tRump fucked that up', in any average citizen's mind?

Well, right now it's simple. On or off, zero or 1, yes or no.

Info will come out, disinfo will come out.

Frank Nitti committed suicide by shooting himself in the head, twice.

This current suicidal wiseguy who was connected to Rump, I hope the investigation into his criminal actions continues and expands, encompassing all the people who were committing crimes with him, around him, in an actual conspiracy. All the rape and child trafficking of all the people around Epstein and tRump, let's bring all that out though this suspect is dead.

Especially since his buddy is going on about rapist child trafficking criminal immigrants, as we speak. Dictating governmental policy around his hatred of those crimes, because of how they're against the values he strongly holds, eksetera.

tRump: "Let tRump tell you all about how great tRump is, and how great tRump is doing.

It's tRump's favorite subject."

The wonderful august storied institution that is known as tRump is very bigly yuge covfefe hamberder.

Kellyann: "Let's not fight."

We could argue forever about who said and did what to who, which side keeps killing dozens of innocent Americans, which side are insane traitors who owe allegiance to Putin and the NRA's birchers, etc.

But we'll never get anything accomplished with these recriminations. Let's get back to talking about how Ayanna Pressley is a traitor for voting against the drumpfenfuhrer's border security bill.

He's keeping us all safe, except for all the dead mass shooting victims.

She should literally wear clown makeup. Sewer rat barbie.

Re 'conspiracy theorists' craziness':

Frederick Lewis Allen's book Only Yesterday (Harper and Row, 1931) had a few interesting tidbits in it about Harding's scandals and the high mortality rate of people closely connected to Harding, very soon after his 1923 death.

Jess Smith -- the bagman for the 'Ohio Gang' (as Harding's felonious cronies were known), and the room mate of Harding's Attorney General Harry Daugherty (who famously pled the 5th in writing to Judge Thatcher's Federal Grand Jury in New York when it was looking into the Harding scandals) -- Jess committed suicide in 1923, in the apartment he shared with the Attorney General.

"Not only had Smith dropped out of the picture, but also John T. King (who had received the Merton bonds), C. F. Hately (a Dept of Justice agent), C.F. Cramer (attorney for the Veterans' Bureau), Thurston (the Boston lawyer who represented many clients before the Alien Property Custodian), T. B. Felder (attorney for the Harding group), President Harding, Mrs. Harding (in 1924), and (Harding's personal physician) General C. E. Sawyer (in 1924). They had all died -- most of them suddenly -- within a few years of the end of the Harding administration." (pp. 132- 133 of the 2010 edition.)

"No matter how much or how little credence one may give to these latter charges and their implications, the proved evidence is enough to warrant the statement that the Harding Administration was responsible in its short two years and five months for more concentrated robbery and rascality than any other in the whole history of the Federal Government."

Rump knows all the best people. He hires all the best.

Also, I'm sure the evil lamestream media isn't going to put the replacement nominee through 'months of slander and libel and make things miserable for them and their family'. This was a one-off.
