It always amazed me that Fogerty could mimic a swampy accent echoing Louisiana, since he and the rest of the band were from Northern California.
Forbes magazine has done a deep dive into the President’s real estate holdings and discovered that he’s getting paid approximately 175 million bucks a year in rent from tenants like the government of China and major banks like UBS, Barclays, J P Morgan and Bank of America. Coincidentally (or was it?)
In December, Trump tenants UBS, Barclays and JPMorgan, plus Trump lender Deutsche Bank, got waiver extensions from the Department of Labor that allow them to avoid part of their punishment for illegally manipulating interest rates and foreign exchange rates.
There’s more, of course. Read the article and decide for yourself whether Walgreens’ heavy lobbying of the White House facilitated its merger with Rite-Aid this year, a merger the Obama Administration and its monopoly regulators had declined to approve. Maybe it was on the up-and-up; then again, Walgreens’ brand Duane Reade pays Trump $3.2M per year in rent at his building at 40 Wall Street in NYC. Do you think the regulators knew that?
The man is a grifter and a lawbreaker.
Ladies and gentlemen, the senior Senator from Hawai’i, expressing an opinion about the indictment of 13 Russian individuals and three Russian companies today.
This is a VERY well done hoax.

That’s MY Senator, folks.
It no longer matters to these miserable people that their hypocrisy stands a mile high and an equal distance wide.
We have to vote every last one of them out in November.
She wrote three songs which appeared on Linda Ronstadt’s Hasten Down the Wind album way back in 1976, but she’s also a singer in her own right. She, Kenny Edwards, Andrew Gold and Wendy Waldman formed Bryndle and released several albums over its life. All four were (Gold and Edwards died several years ago) and are solo artists of note.
Here’s Bonoff singing one of her more famous songs.
If you like that you should hunt up her other albums.
Trump is considering privatizing the International Space Station.
You know, that’ll probably play well in Bumf*** where the Trump voters can reliably be found, according to the anthropologists at the New York Times and Washington Post. No future astronauts or engineers or people like that live out in rural America, I’m sure.
When can we get rid of this idiot?
I found my airplane Kindle book for this September when I head for the East Coast and my 50th HS reunion. I remember the year we lost Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby to assassins’ bullets within two months of one another very well. I’ve read at least one biography of Dr. King, but I don’t remember ever reading one of Bobby.
Freedom from its NFL Championship drought, anyway.
Even with tonight’s 8-point difference between winner and loser, the average spread in all 52 games is still two touchdowns. Check out the spreadsheet at that link to see all the results.
Here’s a half-hour presentation about the game from the NFL Network.
Sports Illustrated’s Monday Morning Quarterback column team makes its picks. They go 11-4 for the Patriots.
I have to agree. I don’t care how old Brady is (40) and how many times Belichick has taken teams to this game (10). Neither of them is too jaded to want to win, and they have the horses to do it. The Eagles’ Nick Foles is a good journeyman QB and Doug Pederson is a good coach, but I don’t see them getting to the top of the mountain this year.
News Headline: White House to Congress: Russia sanctions not needed now
This was the vote on Russian Sanctions:
Today, Trump said he won't impose the sanctions despite a veto-proof majority.
Congratulations, America. Laws are meaningless now.
