I think you'll like this, Fred. National Lampoon song, 1970 or '71.



I'm so thrilled about the possibility of Hillary joining the Presidential race for 2020 again after she's denounced all non-snake candidates as Russian assets.

As we all have seen before, only Hillary can beat Trump!

Elora loves popping bubbles....


In the picture of the scene where Nancy Pelosi seems to be arguing with The Donald, there seem to be at least three people, starting from Gen. Mark Milley ( is he the man just on the right of The Donald with so many decorations?, can not see him well... )to the right who look down like wondering what they were doing there or where they have gone into...

The other day, Elora happened to watch a video where a ceremony on kinda "trepassing of powers" from Gen. Dunford to Gen. Miley was taking place...Catched my attention, apart from the attitude of Dunford knda like thinking, well, "qué sea lo que Dios quiera, this has no mending",....Milley´s wife....
This woman seemed to me a totally dissafected no nonsense woman, who, while being very beautiful even at her elder age, presented herself in such ceremony quite sober, seeming even that she has taken care of her hair by herself that day.... At the same time, showed so natural and relaxed in such ceremony, while showing a great complicity and comradery with her husband...( well, he talks as if he were a bitv authortarian...but he sings quite well...)

Watching the video of election day ball, where Melania showed so rigid, as almost always she shows, while always totally disconected from her husband, along with the other woman-dolls of the Trump family, who look so far from the average human being in manners, attitudes and gestures.... made Elora recall Mrs Milley...and wonder when the US people will have a First Lady at its heights who really represents the average US woman...natural and dissafected... which Elora sees as some of the best traits of the US Americans...


Btw, could someone provide the video, in case it exists, of the Pelosi vs. Trump interchange?

Thanks, in advance.

Hillary Clinton called Tulsi Gabbard a "Russian Asset" ( https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/tulsi-gabbard-should-take-hillary-clintons-russian-asset-anti-endorsement-as-a-compliment ). Your subtle humor is probably wasted on these people.

Enjoyed the song. I'll be singing it in my head all day.

different clue

Would the DemParty really do that? If they broker their convention to nominate Hillary all over again, then I will just have to vote for Trump all over again.



That's called a change of command ceremony. As to Melania, you sound jealous.
""trepassing of powers"" I like that phrase tough, it sounds exactly like the European Parliment in action. Lose control of the legislature by having the Brexit Party become the biggest winners and then assign all the leadership positions to open borders remainers. Folks over your way are going to have lots of fun with your own citizens over the next few years.



Hilary should run. If Trump remains in office another 6 years the lid will blow off the whole corrupt clinton/DLC machinery. Did you see the news out of Baltimore? They are just following the example set by Hilary's staff.

Brexit, in the first place, is a product of US meddling by association with birds like Farage, Johnsons and Rees Mogh...

Folks over your way are going to have lots of fun with your own citizens over the next few years.

And how do you know that?

You do not seem a Green Beret...

Why should Elora be jealous, if what she values is spontaneity and dissafection...morevoer... The Donald does not even sing well...

Elora Danan

Fun, really, will not be lacking with citizens on both sides of the Atlantic .... I fear, Fred.... Look at this ....


Elora, who does not mind getting her hair frizzy, knows how to swim and surf ... like The Tulsi ....


Likely well-known: But people that knew Brennan at Langly (where I worked 10 years as a contractor -- "green-badger") said when he was station chief in Saudi Arabia he likely went Moslem. He appeared with the King at the time observing the huge annual pilgrimage to Mecca, where no infidel can attend on pain of death. Can't confirm it. But might explain a lot.

On the need to grow a reliable economic intelligence...and other interesting issues...with Colonel Baños....



Colonel, TTG, Larry,

Retd. Adm McRaven appears to be calling for an open revolt against the POTUS.


Retd. Adm McRaven if he is so against the POTUS, then why doesn't he run for the POTUS position instead of his whining.

McRaven bitches a lot, but in any of his pieces against the POTUS, I've not seen one word of how McRaven would correct what he sees as wrong.

Guess that McRaven doesn't understand that Mom and Pop America are sick and tired of our kids in uniform being used as the world's police, and serving the national interest of foreign nations and groups, instead of serving what is real U.S. national security interests.




You seem to have an axe to grind as you didn't take the time to read this post or the quotes from McRaven or the link to the NYT article it came from.

English Outsider

To match the welcome ceremony above here's the inspection of the Guard of Honour at Buckingham Palace -


A lot of people over here were impressed by that - affable and Presidential at the same time.


Fred, I didn't see your McRaven part, my bad on my part. Just got a pair of new specs, and am breaking them in. I apologize. Woops.

I don't understand McRaven's constant bitching, with no solutions on his part. I have no problem with somebody griping, as long as they have solutions along with their gripes. That's my 'axe' if you want to call it that.

I really like your 'bubbles' opine.


So, now we know what happens when you imbibe that strawberry flavored, effervescent, KoolAid and there is a keyboard nearby.

And nothing to get hung about


Pelosi called it fred.You just don't know it.



McRaven should be recalled to active duty and tried for any of several violations of UCMJ.



You mean when Obama was President there were no quid pro quos; when foreigners told him what they wanted, he said: yes sir!


This fred.not that.




My, she went to that country whose ruler is alleged to have killed WAPO reporter Jamal Khashoggi. I bet they didn't discuss that. What did she get in return for deploying the Clinton Corps and the Barack Obama brigade there, in Jordan, and in Ireland? Or did she just volunteer to interfere in the foreign relations of the Republic; which are not in duties assigned the House of Representatives, of which she is Speaker and her colleagues on this trip are also membes? They couldn't even get a single Senator to go along for credibility's sake? Definitely a Sub-Prime move on her part.


Hyman Minsky had quite a lot to say about bubbles, and what he had to say I have found accurately reflects and explains observable reality.


Not saying this DID happen, but it could...
