2018 Trump-Putin Summit

2018 Russia-United States Summit   Wikipedia

On Monday at 11:11 I Posted ... Putin and Trump just started a press conference. VP and DT are so full of BS ...

It was hard to believe what I was hearing but not at all surprising as things went down as I had blogged over the past few days. Did Trump really trash his country? Just three days after the indictments of 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking the Democrats during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump stood with Putin, both literally and figuratively, praising the president of Russia, undermining US intelligence agencies, casting doubt that Russia would interfere in our elections, and attacking the Mueller probe. If he testifies in front of Mueller he risks perjury and treason. I've never seen anything like this. It was a tragic day for American diplomacy coming on the heels of Trump's controversy behavior at the NATO Conference last week. Where do we go from here?

In case you're wonder if Putin speaks English - and I thought you knew he did - check out the first 39 seconds of this 2009 CNN interview. He's heads and tails above Trump in the spy game.

One of the final questions came from Jonathan Le Mire - White House Correspondent for the AP - who I recognized from watching The 11th hour with Brian Williams. Arrive back in the US on Air Force One - Brian interviewed Jonathan (See video below). Tuesday Jonathan told Nicole Wallace at MSNBC that initially Trump thought he did just fine. Then slowly in a series of phone calls from staff he realized his comments were not well received. He quickly realized that even his friends and allies were unable to defend his remarks.

The Next Day

Small Tornado Over Brooklyn

Tuesday July 17, 2018

Last month lightning hit the roof of my building and now, not far from here, a tornado touched down. The wind swirled around me as I went to get water from the grocery store across the street returning home as the first drops of rain fell. It was like a scene out of the Wizard of Oz and I was playing the role of Dorothy. (So many metaphors with that film and reality ... including reality being a dream and the WiZard of OZ).

My daughters Zsia and Nikki were both in lower Manhattan for work today - upper floors of different buildings - saw the tornado and felt the vibrations. They both said it was pretty crazy. Video: Storms cause travel nightmare for thousands across the East Coast as funnel cloud forms over Brooklyn. Lots of "Flood Stories" ...

Through lightning and thunder - I turned on the TV and there was Trump trying to clarify his two hour meeting with Putin in Helsinki yesterday that brought shame to him and the US. As Trump spoke, the White House Cabinet Room suddenly went dark - a "Fade to Black Moment" perhaps a premonition of things to come - as Trump voiced "Full Faith" in US Intelligence Agencies.

Due to the heavy thunderstorms my TV reception was a bit 'sketchy' just like the guy talking.

And so the rain gods spoke as lightning and thunder prevailed and the people remained angry.

"Oya" Ellie was heard to say. No ... not Oy vey. Oya - goddess of winds, lightning, and violent storms, death and rebirth. She is a warrior and unbeatable.


Just when you think things can't get wilder and whacker ...

I hate politics for the same reasons most people do - the BS factor of conspiracies and lies which is the basis of the experiment. For now it's about people realizing that there is something greater going on behind the scenes, as I always blog. There definitely seems to be a method to the madness created on many levels of the experiment now. One can speculate but we don't really know the truth so it's basically a waste of time even if you think you have answers from whatever source you deem reliable.
