Especially considering Brazile's tweet with the Lincoln $5 in it. Now Pelosi has uninvited the SOTU address on the 29th and sent them home until Monday. No negotiations from home. Going to be an interesting week, wish I trusted this bunch.

  6. Showdown: Trump pledges 'alternative' event after Pelosi blocks State of the Union Jan. 23, 2019 Jacob Pramuk House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Democrats will block President Donald Trump from giving his State of the Union in the House chamber until the government is open. Earlier, Trump told Pelosi he would give his address as planned next week. The White House and Congress are struggling to break an impasse over the president's demand for $5.7 billion to build his proposed border wall. snip video "Democrats will block President Donald Trump from giving his State of the Union address in the House chamber until the partial government shutdown ends, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday. After Pelosi's announcement, the president appeared to give up on his earlier promise to go on with his speech as planned. He quickly said he would hold an unspecified "alternative" event and contended that the California Democrat is "afraid of the truth." He called Pelosi's move "a great blotch on the incredible country that we all love." In a letter to Trump Wednesday, Pelosi escalated a standoff over the annual address hours after the president said he would give the speech in the House chamber next week. Earlier this month, Pelosi urged him to reschedule the remarks or deliver them elsewhere during a partial government shutdown. Pelosi wrote that the Democratic-held House would not pass the resolution needed to approve the joint session of Congress where he would deliver the address. She said lawmakers "will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President's State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened." snip https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/23/trump-tells-pelosi-he-will-give-state-of-the-union-during-government-shutdown.html
  7. SpaceX's giant rocket ship was blown over and damaged by powerful winds in Texas — and Elon Musk says repairs will take weeks Dave Mosher Jan. 23, 2019 An illustration of SpaceX's "test hopper," an experimental stainless-steel ship. Though it won't launch into space, the vehicle should help Elon Musk's rocket company work on a larger Starship spacecraft for reaching Mars. Elon Musk/SpaceX via Twitter; Samantha Lee/Business Insider "Elon Musk's rocket company, SpaceX, has built a prototype of a stainless-steel rocket ship in southern Texas. People who live near the site reported on Wednesday morning that the vehicle, known as the "test hopper," was blown over by powerful gusts of wind. Musk and SpaceX confirmed those reports, saying the damage would take weeks to repair. The test hopper is a squat version of a full-scale Starship, a spaceship that's being designed to send people to Mars. The top section of SpaceX's shiny prototype of its giant Starship rocket fell over on Wednesday morning because of powerful winds. "I just heard," Elon Musk, the company's founder, tweeted, confirming on-the-ground reports that the vehicle was no longer vertical. He added: "50 mph winds broke the mooring blocks late last night & fairing was blown over. Will take a few weeks to repair." A SpaceX representative independently confirmed to Business Insider that the top portion of the vehicle — called the fairing or nosecone — had fallen over because of high winds. The representative declined to comment further" https://www.businessinsider.comstarship-test-hopper-rocket-ship-damaged-2019-1/spacex-elon-musk- >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> How Elon Musk's secretive foundation hands out his billions Mark Harris Jan. 23, 2019 "The entire website of Elon Musk’s private charitable foundation is shorter than many of the Tesla CEO’s contentious tweets. “Musk Foundation. Grants are made in support of: Renewable energy research and advocacy; Human space exploration research and advocacy; Pediatric research; Science and engineering education,” the site reads. Documents obtained by the Guardian reveal how the foundation has put that vague mission statement into practice. Together, the documents show that many of the organization’s donations have gone far beyond its stated scope. Some have benefited the billionaire’s own family and initiatives, others have tackled his pet peeves – the foundation has given more money to artificial intelligence research than to any of the more traditional charities it says it supports. As with many other of his achievements, Musk has publicly touted his charitable activities, whether during the Flint water crisis or amid international efforts to rescue a young soccer team trapped in a Thai cave. Musk has given personally to multiple causes and organizations, including multimillion-dollar donations to the Sierra Club and the XPrize Foundation, and a $1m grant to the Obama Foundation. But the bulk of his charitable giving has been through this private foundation, for which he provides the entirety of its funding. The Musk Foundation has disbursed more than $54m in 15 years of operations, more than a third in direct gifts to 160 charities, according to an analysis of filings with the Internal Revenue Services from its incorporation in 2001 to the middle of 2017. Most recorded awards totalled just a few thousand dollars, and many went to environmental, educational, medical and space advocacy organizations." snip https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/jan/23/how-elon-musks-secretive-foundation-benefits-his-own-family
  8. Migrant caravan grows as Mexico fast-tracks humanitarian visas Jan. 23, 2019 CBS "A migrant caravan trying to reach the U.S. is expected to grow as thousands gather at Mexico's southern border awaiting entry. Last week, Mexico decided to fast-track humanitarian visas so migrants can enter legally and nearly 8,000 people have applied. So far, more than 500 visas have been issued. Thousands of migrants are gathered on both sides of Mexico-Guatemala border because of the five-day waiting period to get visas. Now, those who had originally entered Mexico illegally are trying to backtrack to the border, so they too can get visas, reports CBS News' Adriana Diaz. As the buses arrived in Tapachula, 15 miles north of the border, desperation set in. The lines began forming before dawn Tuesday as word spread that the Mexican government was transporting migrants who had entered illegally to get humanitarian visas." snip less than 50% https://www.cbsnews.com/news/migrant-caravan-grows-as-mexico-fast-tracks-humanitarian-visas/ What is it these thousands don't get, that there IS a legal way to immigrate, and an illegal way. IF you break the laws to get into any country, then you become a criminal in that country. Is that a better life than what you already have? The US sends millions of dollars in aid to these very countries, every year. Perhaps it's time to call for an accounting of where and how exactly those funds are being used. We are a nation of some 325 million people, with probably 1/3 working and paying taxes. How many billions other than ourselves, can we support? There comes a point where it just is not possible any longer. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against helping people, but how about the expense being shared among all countries. Perhaps the question we should ask is, who's paying for those busses transporting them to the border? I see this as a manufactured invasion, the same as what's happening all over Europe. Driven by those who want a one world order, and with no thought or consideration for the humans involved.

  10. Pentagon: Chinese Military Units Training With ASAT missiles Jan. 23, 2019 Bill Gertz "China, Russia militarizing space to challenge U.S Chinese military forces have deployed multiple units armed with anti-satellite (ASAT) missiles that can destroy scores of American satellites, according to a Pentagon intelligence report. The new report by the National Air and Space Intelligence Center, known as NASIC, revealed that People's Liberation Army units have begun training with the satellite-killing missiles. The report warns that China, along with Russia, has developed an array of space arms designed to challenge U.S. space superiority. The report was made public last month. The report for first time reveals that Chinese military units already are conducting training for space attacks with anti-satellites missiles. Russia also is developing a new anti-satellite missile the report said. "These missiles can destroy U.S. and allied space systems in low earth orbit, making intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and communications satellites vulnerable," the report said. The Air Force operates six constellations and 12 satellite systems regarded as vital to national security. They provide communications, command and control, missile warning, nuclear detonation detection, weather, and GPS for the world. Foreign adversaries "are integrating advanced space and counterspace technologies into warfighting strategies to challenge U.S. superiority and position themselves as space powers," states. "Multiple attack options—cyber, electronic, or directed-energy weapons; anti-satellite missiles; or space-based weapons—enable potential adversaries to achieve a range of damaging effects," the report said." snip https://freebeacon.com/national-security/pentagon-chinese-military-units-training-with-asat-missiles/
  11. KY Prosecutor Confirms: Multiple Investigations Underway Into Twitter Users For TERRORIST THREATS Against Covington Kids Cristina Laila Jan. 22, 2019 "Rob Sanders, a Kenton County Prosecutor, confirmed Tuesday that there are multiple investigations into Twitter users who made terroristic threats against Covington Catholic High School. “We’ve got multiple ongoing investigations into numerous, numerous threats,” Mr. Sanders said Tuesday in a podcast interview with 700 WLW. “There’s probably a dozen law enforcement agencies, if not more involved in this — it’s growing, it’s spreading, there are other jurisdictions now involved in this,” Sanders added. 700 WLW radio host Willie Cunningham brought up the death threats towards the Covington teens made by bluecheck verified accounts on Twitter and asked Mr. Sanders about Kentucky law. Hollywood producer Jack Morrissey said the ‘MAGA hat kids should go into a woodchipper’ and LA DJ Michael Buchanan AKA ‘House Shoes’ called for Covington HS to be burned down with the teens locked inside. “What is the Kentucky law about making threats to Covington Catholic specifically? Is there a law against it?” Willie asked Rob Sanders. “There is. It’s called ‘terroristic threatening’ in Kentucky and it is a felony offense punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison to make a threat of violence to an educational institution, so everyone who makes a specific threat.” Mr. Sanders made sure to clarify that saying “nasty things” about the Covington kids is not the same thing as making an “actual threat of violence” against Cov Cath or any other school in Kentucky that’s punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison. The punishment can go up to 5 to 10 years if they talk about using a weapon of mass destruction." snip https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/01/ky-prosecutor-confirms-multiple-investigations-underway-into-twitter-users-for-terrorist-threats-against-covington-kids/ JACK DORSEY: TWITTER NAZIS ARE HERE TO STAY Bess Levin Jan. 23, 2019 Wall Street, among others, wish the C.E.O. would stop talking. "If we’re evaluating on a share-price basis, 2018 was a pretty good year for Twitter, whose stock rose 17 percent, despite the fact that the social-media platform has become an online cesspool of trolls, white nationalists, and terrible takes, with Donald Trump serving as the glue that keeps the whole thing together. Probably not super helpful for the company’s stock price? C.E.O. Jack Dorsey saying out loud, in the presence of a reporter, that the company basically has no plans to get rid of the neo-Nazis who’ve proliferated on the site. In an interview with Rolling Stone published Wednesday, Dorsey was asked about the frequent calls to “get the Nazis off Twitter,” to which he initially offered the near-incomprehensible response, “[The topics of] abuse and our policies have been much more pronounced recently. And it comes in the form of categorizing people as Nazis and wanting them removed. People are definitely not satisfied with our progress there. It’s not as simple as what the reply would indicate, but it is work that needs to be done.” Then, after being informed that the site has not gotten rid of a number of “professed white nationalists,” despite supposedly having a policy whereby accounts aligning with such groups are suspended, Dorsey essentially blamed non-Nazi Twitter users for failing to do the company’s job, before praising the platform for all the progress it has made:" snip https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/01/jack-dorsey-twitter-nazis-are-here-to-stay Who exactly are those neo-nazis they are talking about? Trump supporters? "White Nationalists"=Conservatives/Patriots? While those posts from the blue checked accounts calling for throwing those kids, who did nothing wrong, into a wood chipper, or burning down their school with them in it, are allowed to stay? Something very twisted and wrong is going on here. Masters of deception at work everywhere.
  12. Last week
  13. Who was on the bus: Eliot Engel Adam Schiff Mark Takano Susan Davis Stephen Lynch Elaine Luria There might be one more since it was supposed to be seven congress types.
  14. @KMRIA yes all 3 men were shot. Lincoln/MLK assassinated, while Hamilton was shot in a duel with Aaron Burr. It would be interesting to know exactly who her messages were meant for. Today I read that she'd already changed the one tweet regarding Pelosi from #President Pelosi Monday to #President Pelosi shortly thereafter. I can't vouch for that, because it was as I posted it, when I saw it, and I've not seen it otherwise. I can't help but be reminded that desperate men/women do desperate things. My perception of her tweets is that they're pretty brazen, as she would know many were going to see, save, and discuss them. Let's not forget this either https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/30-dems-in-puerto-rico-with-109-lobbyists-for-weekend-despite-shutdown They went to see the Broadway play of "Hamilton" while in Puerto Rico. So 2 references to Hamilton/Dems in less than 2 weeks. @PE I had been saving links about things that were going on, I couldn't quite put my finger on why I was so bothered by the happenings, but felt they were connected. Then I was reading a thread where someone had posted the link to the book and suggested we read/reread it. Reminded me of a "Back to the Future" kind of scenario. How could someone write a book 123 years ago, that's describing a situation almost exactly like this one going on now? It seemed to bring it all together for me. It also brought home to me, that Pence is also at risk, I truly had not thought about that, but considering the Speaker is next in line, I sure am now, especially after the fire yesterday in the studio where he was supposed to be for a Sunday morning interview. To my understanding, they never made it onto the plane. They were stopped while on the bus, and refused the use of the Military airplane. I haven't heard that anyone witnessed the entourage get off the bus, just that it's said Seven Dems, Pelosi's kids, grandkids, her/the Dems spouses and families, some 93 people in all. Some have said lots of kids. I don't know, can't verify, but if there were 7 Dems, that's 14 adults, plus any adult kids/spouses. + SS. Out of 93, that means a far greater number of kids versus adults. Curious imo, on a diplomatic junket? To Brussels, Afghanistan, Egypt, ?? I will just mention this. in Belgium there is the Chateau des Amerois otherwise known as The Mother of Darkness Castle that has a Chapel on the grounds, said to have a ceiling with 1,000 points of light. Recall GHWB talking about the thousand points of light? Perhaps more to the trip than we know? Blood moon/eclipse last night, and yes they did see it in Belgium. http://www.brusselstimes.com/belgium/13815/skywatchers-see-red-blood-moon-in-a-total-lunar-eclipse-visible-from-belgium An interesting tweeter thread. He explains quite a bit.

  17. @breezy what made you looking at those old books again? Also has it been confirmed it was all extended family and grand children? One thing at the time was the airforce bus was circling and not stopping when the flight was cancelled, reporters thought it was to avoid them the press, maybe it was and maybe also they were in a panic not knowing what to do if their plan was to certainly flee US territory. Not smart using the AF but the Q posts regularly these people are stupid.
  18. I've been collecting links and info for several days now in regard to something I feel is strange and concerning, that's going on. I sincerely hope the whole thing is a fluke and will turn out to be nothing, but just in case, I'm going to put it down. In 1896 a book "The Last President" was written by Ingersoll Lockwood. In the last pages it tells about how the House of Reps. is deliberating, (The legislation the House was trying to pass had to do with the rights of Freemen being usurped by a majority. How those trying to save the Republic, fighting against wrong and tyranny, and had struggled against overwhelming odds, and did not intend to be present to vote on it.) when the President arrives to make his State of the Union speech and it creates such a clamor, that they try to keep him from speaking, and insist he leave. He asks for them to calm and allow him to speak, that the Senate, and V. Pres., are also invited, and greeted by the members of the House. As the President starts to speak about the legislation they are currently deliberating, The Speaker brings down his gavel and warns the President he must not speak about that. As he started to speak again the city bells tolled midnight and a new century was born. However, at the same moment a horrific explosion took place, dynamite had destroyed the Capitol Dome. The chamber was unscathed, but the President was led away, the House took the final vote on the legislation and the Republic died. Dawn came gray and the destruction of the Capitol Dome was viewed by one devilishly gleaming human eye, (illuminati?) which was then caught up in the people milling about. I tell you, this is so similar to what's taking place right now, it's mind bending. https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015080466603;view=1up;seq=1 <link to the book to read > only 47 pages and very interesting Speaker Pelosi suggests Pres.

Fire damages MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN studios in D.C. as Mike Pence scheduled to appear Jan. 20, 2019 "WASHINGTON (ABC7) — An electrical fire broke out Sunday morning at a building that houses MSNBC, Fox News and C-SPAN studios in D.C. DC Fire and EMS said the fire took place around 7:15 a.m. in MSNBC’s studio on the eighth floor of the building at 400 North Capitol Street, NW, and that no one was injured. The Fox News and C-SPAN studios are in the same building, though on different floors. Vice President Mike Pence was scheduled to be present at the building to appear on “Fox News Sunday” with host Chris Wallace but was not there at the time of the evacuation, a Pence spokesperson told ABC7. As a result of the fire, “Fox News Sunday” moved to FOX 5’s studio at 5151 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, and Pence still appeared on the show. A FOX 5 assignment editor told ABC7 that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich also was at the FOX 5 studios. On the show, Wallace addressed the fire. "If things look a little bit different here today that’s because of the fact that we had a fire – yes, a fire – in our building on North Capitol Street, and so we’re over at our wonderful affiliate WTTG," Wallace said, according to The Hill." snip https://wset.com/news/nation-world/mike-pence-newt-gingrich-fire-fox-news-studio-dc

(AP Photo/Silvia Izquierdo) "CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The celestial curtain will be rising soon on a lunar extravaganza. Sunday night, the Earth will slide directly between the moon and the sun, creating a total lunar eclipse. There won’t be another until 2021. It will also be the year’s first supermoon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer position. The entire eclipse will exceed three hours. Totality — when the moon’s completely bathed in Earth’s shadow — will last an hour. Expect the eclipsed, or blood moon, to turn red from sunlight scattering off Earth’s atmosphere. Everyone everywhere can catch the supermoon, weather permitting. But the entire eclipse will be visible only in North and South America, and across the Atlantic to western and northern Europe." https://apnews.com/ae6d44cc5305425b86eed6b8a33339eb

  23. The Ebola outbreak in Eastern Congo is moving toward a major city. That’s not good. Jan. 19, 2019 Julia Belluz "With at least 680 cases, it’s already the second-largest Ebola outbreak in history. At least 680 people have been infected with the Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It’s the second-largest Ebola outbreak in history, with 414 deaths so far, and the first Ebola outbreak in an active war zone, DRC’s eastern North Kivu and Ituri provinces. But it could get worse: Health officials this week are concerned that Ebola appears to be spreading in the direction of Goma, a major population center in DRC. Just this week, DRC’s health ministry confirmed four cases of the deadly virus in Kayina, a town in North Kivu, where fighting among rebel and militia groups has repeatedly interrupted the painstaking work of health workers who are responding to the outbreak. Kayina happens to be halfway between Butembo, currently one of the outbreak’s most worrisome hotspots, and Goma, where a million people live. So far, the outbreak has not affected DRC’s biggest cities. But Ebola in Kayina “raises the alarm” for Ebola reaching Goma, Peter Salama, the head of the new Health Emergencies Program at the World Health Organization, told Vox on Friday. Goma is a major transportation hub, with roads and highways that lead to Rwanda. “These are crossroad cities and market towns,” Salama added. People there are constantly on the move doing business, and also because of the insecurity in North Kivu. Ebola in Goma is a nightmare scenario WHO and DRC’s health ministry are scrambling to prevent." snip https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2019/1/18/18188199/drc-ebola-outbreak
  24. Human family tree gains new member as scientists confirm 'missing link' Sarah Knapton Jan. 18, 2019 Life reconstruction of Australopithecus sediba CREDIT: SCULPTURE: ELISABETH DAYNES / PHOTO: S. ENTRESSANGLE "A new ‘missing link’ between our ape-like ancestors and early humans has been identified, showing that we were still swinging from the trees less than two million years ago. The first fossils of Australopithecus sediba were discovered in Malapa, South Africa, ten years ago, but experts were unsure if they were unique or just examples of already known species. Now after a decade of a research experts have confirmed they do belong to a unique species which slots into the human family tree between little upright apes like ‘Lucy’ - the 3.2 million-year-old Australopithecus afarensis skeleton found in 1974 - and Homo habilis, the first tool-maker, which live around 2.1 to 1.5 million years ago. Intriguingly,... Australopithecus sediba, which lived between 1.95 and 1.78 million years ago, still had arms bones like monkeys suggesting it spent large amounts of time swinging in the trees long after it was thought we had moved onto the ground. It also had the short foot bones of a creature that did not walk long distances and a small brain, like Lucy. Yet its hands had developed long opposable thumbs, showing it had the dexterity to use tools, although without the grip strength of later humans. Studies of its teeth revealed its diet was more varied and human-like than its vegetation-munching predecessor. snip The new species sits between Australopithecus afarensis (second from left) and Homo habilis (third from left) CREDIT: SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY snip https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2019/01/18/human-family-tree-just-gained-new-member-scientists-confirm/ I had to register to read this, and don't want to risk posting the entire article.

  26. This EPA Rule Change Could Kill Thousands of People Olivia Alperstein Jan. 11, 2019 "Mercury regulations save 11,000 lives each year. Now, the EPA wants to weaken them. While Americans were quietly preparing to ring in the New Year, the EPA gave families a deadly present to start the year off wrong. On December 28, the Environmental Protection Agency announced a proposal that would effectively weaken the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS), which protect American families from mercury and other harmful air pollutants emitted by power plants. The EPA “proposes to determine that it is not ‘appropriate and necessary’ to regulate” these emissions, the EPA wrote in a statement. This means that the regulations will lose the necessary legal mechanism that actually enables them to actually be enforced. These regulations save a lot of lives — 11,000 every year, according to the EPA’s own data — and they prevent 130,000 asthma attacks annually. Stripping this regulatory power virtually guarantees more asthma attacks and more preventable deaths. For families, those aren’t just numbers. At any age, exposure to even small amounts of mercury can lead to serious health problems. The worst health impacts include irreparable brain development defects in babies and young children, and cancer, heart disease, lung disease, and premature death among people of all ages.
