4:34 What I said yesterday about flowers.

Keith # 101 - Yes. This article ("diary") is IMO too optimistic, but still well worth a look. Links to various parts of the testimony from multiple days.

YT/MO - There is some indication that Priebus was given notice two weeks ago. Of course, who know who to believe, among this nest of crooks and liars? If I didn't have to live here I think I would laugh my head off over this video.

TNY - SMH. SO true.

Cartoon - Hey, wait - are those the tea bags from Kansas? Get a SWAT team to arrest that druggie !!!

KO: Very informative, bookmarking too.
*I watched some of Mr. Browder giving testimony. Very, very scary info there.

MO: Breathing a sigh of relief, but not resting, RESIST!

NYer: Yea, ain't that the truth??

Cartoon: Oh, Lordy!

You've had a very busy day! Glad Jason helped you too. Get some rest, and take good care, enjoy your evening. Thanks, Tom.

Browder tells a story that could well be the primary context and frame to fit all the other puzzle pieces into.

Thanks for the AB.

Keith Olbermann: The timeline is now as clear as a bell, Drumpf and his team colluded with the Russians and there only one thing for it. “Get him out while we still have the mechanisms with which to do so.” Amen.

MOC: Winning a battle with so much stacked against them really fires up the Resistance and people are now ready for the next battle. Kudos to all of you!

TNY: Bitter-sweet, Andy, bitter-sweet.😩

Cartoon: She could be right, all it cost her was a nickel to buy its soul.

Glad Jason debugged your laptop, TomCat, but too bad you now need to reinstall all that software. Good luck with that and don’t overdo it, specially when it’s so hot.

Thank you for Keith O. Always right on it all
When McCain Voted on the Healthcare did you Notice that 'Turtleman'was a -Smiling when he walked up to Vote then it quickly Changed!!!
John Boehner says they will not succeed the repubs he knew this!
a lot has happened this week, Now I Understand Lindsey Graham is come up with another Deal on the Healthcare! Now McCain has went back to Arizona to have treatments and rest.
With him being gone &
If it comes up again Maybe Pence will be the deciding VOTE!! KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN!
Turtleman will go right back to the PUSHING again!
Anything could happen way too FAST!
Oh and we thought all the crap was over!
They will keep going and going till they can get something thru~~TRUMPY IS MAD!
They were Embarassed I am sure and not Taking it all very Well.
I am sure the some of them would have Voted as McCain did maybe they will have chance to do it now!!
and Have some 'GUTS'
Seems as if the one's from the South are Not so Careing for the people. Still Mad about a Black Man being president, holding grudges Because he did so much for the people. What Idiot's!
Thank you TomCat

Puzzle — 4:28  I just kept rolling along but obviously not fast enough!

YouTube — Just 3 words — Guilty as sin!!!  Thanks to Baby Drumpf and Kushner, there is some damning evidence.  How sweet it is, and it will be sweeter when the bunch are tried in a court of law and found guilty!

YouTube — While the most recent vote on Trumpcare was a defeat for Republicans, I personally would not call it over.  McTurtle pulled the bill right after the vote which will allow him to bring the bill back at a later date.  He is persistent, nauseatingly so! 

The New Yorker — Stupid is as stupid does!  Let the idiots be disappointed.  They are not a ‘silent majority’ but a silent minority.

Cartoon — . . . and you can have it! . . . but you must remove your stuff from Washington by the end of the month!

Resist and Persist!!!

Thanks JD. Wonderful graphic!!!

I am sitting here in the living room listening to muffled explosions of the fireworks down at English Bay (The Celebration of Light) in Vancouver.  I cannot see anything as the summer foliage blocks it, but I definitely here it.  Being muffled, the furbabes have not taken notice, fortunately.  It will be total chaos downtown for the next few hours.  I am glad Jason was able to fix the Comcast screw up, but I feel for you having to reload all the programmes.

Borowitz report: In a stunning rebuke of a former close political ally, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday angrily resigned from Donald Trump’s 2020 reëlection campaign. So...Another task for Jared's very long to-do list.

Just read that Sen. Collins got an impromptu round of applause for her no vote when she landed at the airport in Maine. First time that ever happened to her. Hope she keeps paying attention to her constituents.

This is going to be a brutal week Portland - stay hydrated.
