A. Native American prayer: Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind, whose breath gives life to all the world. Hear me; I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. ... So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my spirit may come to you without shame. And Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.

It was a dark and stormy night, and Epstein still didn't kill himself.

Trump has a tremendous connection with his supporters. He is also a billionaire. Bloomberg appeals to the bloodless nannies. I’m sure the country club set and elite love him but he is a mackerel. Talking to voters in Alabama will be like talking to Martians. All Bloomberg is offering is more nanny. Trump offers red meat to his base and even those who won’t admit it and then delivers.

Jeff Sessions was just on Tucker Carlson and I have rarely seen a more decent man. 100% pro Trump and just plain common decency. He is a role model and really had no choice but to recuse himself. He may have been neutered by the Left but is both a wise counselor and solid vote against the horde.

Reading further on the violence in Chile the causes seem to be a new carbon tax and a fare increase on the Santiago subways caused by the government’s decision to switch to solar power and wind and the attendant higher costs for such. Gilet Jaunes, Chilean students and Califonians are getting a very clear message about how the middle and lower classes are going to be totally screwed over while the elite jet back and forth to climate change summits. Viva la Revolution!!

It would now seem that the only people who don’t know the leakers name are the media. Half of the housewives in the country now know,after all. He’s not a whistleblower He’s a hack with an agenda. Ciarmella!Ciarmella!Ciarmella!Ciarmella! The silence at ABC and the firing at CBS, along with thr outings by Project Veritas are the death knell for old media. The facts need to be broadcast over all alt media channels to expose just how deep the depravity is. How can any person with a whit of a conscience support pedophiles, rapists, baby murderers and crooks?

Psychiatry was well and truly screwed up long before Rosenhan came along. In that time frame, the DSM, the Bible of psychiatry, was just being debated for the first time. There was a combination of factors; new psychiatric wonder drugs; the human rights movement; Dr. Thomas Szasz, who argued on behalf of the Church of Scientology that there was no such thing as mental illness. The psychiatrists convinced the politicians to shut the hospitals down Those hospitals cost a fortune. My mother got a call one day from her brother, who was the nearest relative to my grandmother, who was a patient at Creedmoor. He had been given days to pick up my grandmother from the hospital or she would have been put out on the street after 40 years there. That was on the same time frame as Rosenhan. Psychiatry, until perhaps the 1990's, was a mess. We had drugs we did not understand and the brain is the only organ that is not examined before diagnosis. That is sill true. There is plenty of blame to go around on why it went off the rails, but first there have to be rails to run off. From the late 1700's to the mid 1800's there were actually therapeutic hospitals. There were no guidelines and it was all guesswork, but at least it wasn't Bedlam. Do you recall what Bedlam was? I saw a preview of a new documentary coming out on PBS early next year. It is called Bedlam. I recommend it highly. It is a very stark view of the realties of our mental health care system.

So Barney's, who have specialized in catering to the gay/metrosexual crowd are being dismantled. Not enough customers for skinny jeans and shirts in a world that is not skinny. Netflix is going even deeper into debt and the whole industry is following them. Elon Musk is still losing his ass. It would seem the only one who has a clue is Buffett, who is mainly a rent seeker. I smell a lot of vaporware out there. And yet the real economy is doing well. Even with GM on strike the jobs numbers were good. It just seems that the core Dem constituencies are starting to take it on the chin. Nancy warned them that what plays in San Fran and DC and New York doesn't play in the rest of the country andWarren just sounded like Hugo Chavez with her call for medicare for all. And Hillary is still stumbling around shouting "I coulda been a contender!" And all the while Trump is out there telling them "Who's Your Baghdadi?"

Did anyone pay attention to La Pelosi's lisp today? Does she need a new dental insert? She sounded like the snake in Jungle Book. All of Orange County's Democrats voted for the impeachment farce. I think that is going to bite them in their college time kiesters next year. Unfortunately, Michelle Steele is running against Rouda and she is fairly well despised because her husband is one of the more corrupt Republican fixers in the state. She is also a do-nothing.
My theory is that the home teams were having too much fun/distraction at home. Very hard to understand how some of the best pitchers in the game just melted down on both sides. Maybe there were some Mantle antics involved. But it was a hell of.a series and you can't argue too much except a few calls, and no ump is perfect. And today we get to watch the clown show in Congress beclown themselves.
I think that the LTC needs to be sent to Shemya to exercise his Russian language skills in monitoring Russian Air Force radio communications. Can they still do that?

Think about it for a minute. The former Director of the CIA committing treason. I would say that is a hanging offense.

These haters fail to realize that hell is raining down on ISIS and Trump is telling all the little Baghdadis he's coming for them too. That was a very clear message, especially with the dogs chasing him down. Very haram, that. Defile forms to the right. No real mention of the cooperation of the Kurds in nailing Baghdadi's #2. Hmmm...when was the genocide of the Kurds supposed to start? The whole thing is really blowing up in their faces and the SNL foopah really backfired on Alec Baldwin and his cronies. The establishment is now saying to themselves "Where's my credibility? I knew I left it somewhere around here."

One other thing; Assange knows where the Democratic Party e mails came from. That would clarify a lot.
I truly hope the Nationals have jinxed themselves by insulting Trump. I was agnostic on this Series, but the Nationals represent Doucheville and all of the big douches will be in attendance tonight as guests of the cronies. I truly hope Houston wins four straight and rams it down Washington's throat. As to the paper trail, both Powers and Rice were unmasking political opponents in Fall 2016. Hard to explain that away and it took executive authority to allow spying on Americans within our borders. This all fits together with an out of control top leadership willing to use Chicago Rules and take the 5th. This is, I think, why Durham and Horowitz are being very careful. Every line, every statement, every piece of evidence has to be thoroughly investigated to establish motive, means and intent. That it is now a criminal investigation is going to rattle those assholes cages like nothing else. They don't know who or what and won't be able to trust anyone, especially if there are a couple of canaries. Politicians, while just as sleazy, don't get the Mafia code. I'll bet someone has been talking already. But this is a political case of the highest order. Biden, Clinton and the whole power structure are going to get splattered with mud like never has happened in the past. Exposing the Dem's connections to Ukrainian interests is just one sideshow to the main event. All threads lead to the top. Obama was a master of dirty politics, but I am hoping that this time his ass gets caught in the wringer. To quote a line from. film: "You called down the thunder. Well, now you've got it! You see that? It says "United States Marshal."... Take a good look at him, Ike, because that's how you're gonna end up!... The Cowboys are finished, you understand me?! I see a red sash, I kill the man wearin' it! So run, you cur... RUN! Tell all the other curs the LAW'S coming! You tell 'em I'M coming... and Hell's coming with me, you hear?! Hell's coming with me!"
The Chinese send their kids here for the chance to obtain visas and residency as well as gain coveted American degrees. Hongcouver to a lesser extent. We have it here in the San Gabriel Valley and Irvine. To an extent they are still locked into the mandarin syndrome where, unless you pass the test/have the right piece of paper, your career stalls. It will be very interesting going forward to see if Emperor Xi re-introduces political litmus tests that cast foreign educated Chinese as capitalist roaders and revanchists.

All the best narciso! LA is the epicenter because we had a huge mental health problem because of the closure of the mental hospitals in the most populous state in the Union and then compounded it with an out of control homeless crisis. Even NYC officials and docs recognize this. 57,000+ homeless. That's a small city in itself. If King Large Cojones Abdullah says the U.S. move in Syria is a good one it probably is.

Spent 30 minutes being interviewed by Dr. Drew on the radio this afternoon on the subject of mental health. He's a smart guy and we didn't agree on everything, but we agree on a lot. Mental health is becoming a major issue, it would seem, for the national media. Here in Greater LA we are at the epicenter of the problems
They are all a part of the establishment. The parting on the left is now the parting on the right as Pete Townsend wrote. Reynolds points out that the revolt at the State Department is out in the open now. How many others are in revolt? McRaven is under orders to keep his damn mouth shut on politics and yet issued a virtual call to arms. Obama openly politicized his government agencies and departments. There can be no argument to that fact. Even our military has been deeply politicized. Somewhere I may still have an e mail I sent to GEN Petraeus warning him that he was probably stepping into a viper's nest by going to CIA. He did it to himself, but nevertheless I am sure the deep state did their best to ensure that he could never run against a Democrat. I am reminded of the widespread need to use flamethrowers in the Pacific Campaign to root out the Japanese fanatics.
The Patrick O'Brien novels were based upon Admiral Thomas Cochrane, whom they called the "Sea King". He was the finest single ship captain in British history. But he was as O'Brien described him. Irreverent, disrespectful of his seniors, a risk taker. And a winner. And we should introduce Pierre Delecto to Carlos Danger, don't you think?
