What's up NY State? Can't find anything on Bannon investigation for stealing money from wall-a-thon

Yes, he was arrested. Yes federal charges. Supposedly defrauded fund out of a $1 million. Yes Dingbat pardoned him. Yes charges dropped.

But NY State is supposed to have opened an investigation. This seems so much worse than not following a subpoena.

And someone dug this tape up of him saying they got a million. Although he could say he was just joking.

Absolutely insane. Queen Elizabeth at 95 to give up

Her nightly martini

No More Martinis The Queen Advised to Give Up Her Favorite Drink
BY ANWAR HUSSEIN/GETTY IMAGES.
Queen Elizabeth is known to enjoy a tipple but Her Majesty is giving up her daily alcoholic beverage at the advice of her doctors.

While she is in good physical health, the Queen, who has been seen using a cane in recent days including Thursday in Wales where she addressed the Welsh Parliament, has been advised to give up her evening martini as she prepares for one of the most important periods of her reign, Vanity Fair can report.

According to two sources close to the monarch, doctors have advised the Queen to forgo alcohol except for special occasions to ensure she is as healthy as possible for her busy autumn schedule and ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations next June. “The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,” says a family friend. “It’s not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker but it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she’s having to give up one of very few pleasures.”

So on vacation in Florida. Guy from Poughkeepsie just

told me that hospital there ( he knew insiders) said that 49 people there have died from the vaccine. What? Is that true??

He's in a unique segment, in my experience. He won't get the vaccine but IS very concerned about Covid. And went out of his way to avoid people by driving NY to FL. ( Unlike the no vaccine/don't worry about covid segment)

Why our top government isn't talking about this EVERY single day

is a true and utter mystery to me.

PS Don't want the typical "they know what they're doing" or " I trust them" comments.

What a lost opportunity! to inform and to save lives by promoting the vaccines. To create competition!!! These bad states are only hoping and praying that no media or the president's team calls attention to their failure.

Anyone else notice this? Firm believer in watching what animals do

Live in Central TX. I would guestimate about 4 weeks ago my dog stopped drinking tap water. Water he used to lap up.

He won't even go near it now. The only water he will drink is water in the drip pan below a plant on the patio. Water that's been filtered through soil.

So bottom line, the decision was made to throw Gen Milley

under the bus? "No recollection of his recommendation to leave some troops" via Psaki..

Not quite sure what would have been wrong with saying that people close to me advised otherwise, but then I was advised that it wouldn't make any difference in the ultimate outcome, I decided to move forward and get the hell out of there to save lives. Or is that too nuanced?

Just strikes me as that you wouldn't want a general to have to testify that they didn't warn?

The downside, I reckon you would be called a bad decision maker? On the upside, you wouldn't have someone pretty much insinuating you're a liar.

If you want to fall in love all over again with your partner

Watch alone, Wedding Singer.

I know this sounds crazy -- I've half seen this movie a number of times and it never had much of any impact on me. But the chemistry and the story are actually quite compelling and it got 91% viewer approval on IMDB.

The soundtrack is ootw
