Even The Russians Are Laughing At Trump’s 4th of July Flop : PolitiZoom


Okay, let’s be reasonable now: maybe there are 3.4 million people in this picture…IF you count all of their counterparts in alternate dimensions. Yeah, that sounds right. That’s where all the alternate facts come from, is alternate dimensions — and that’s where JFK Jr. lives, too.

The claimed crowd size is not the only thing that’s laughable. So are the tanks and the military hardware and just look at who’s laughing at that.

President Whose ‘Bone Spurs’ Kept Him Out Of War Finally Gets His Tank-Adorned Celebration | HuffPost UK


WASHINGTON ― The commander-in-chief who five decades ago claimed “bone spurs” to avoid a war because he was “never a fan” finally got the military celebration he has wanted since taking office ― but with tepid attendance and a low-energy speech whose reviews are likely to stoke a fresh round of pique from the man who delivered it.

“The First Lady and I wish each and every one of you a happy Independence Day on this truly historic Fourth of July,” President Donald Trump said Thursday from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, a pair of armored Bradley Fighting Vehicles staged in front of him.

People are mocking Trump for his bizarre false claim that windmill noise causes cancer – VT


Ever since Scottish officials tried to build a “really ugly wind farm” by his Aberdeen golf course in 2006, Donald Trump has been an outspoken critic of wind power. He has also been a lifelong climate change denier, despite 97% of climate scientists agreeing that climate change is real and humans are causing it. “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive,” he tweeted in 2012.

In response to alarming reports about the consequences if we don’t take action on climate change, Trump has mocked renewable sources of energy. At a rally in Ohio last month, he predicted power failures if the wind stops blowing, quipping, “When the wind doesn’t blow, just turn off the television darling, please.” That’s a humorous scenario, but not accurate, as grid operators draw electricity from solar panels, natural gas turbines and hydroelectric dams during gaps of wind.

Resurfaced footage shows Trump giving a speech on how to ‘get to the other side of a wall’ | indy100


President Trump’s uncompromising dedication to his border wall is a topic that doesn’t look like it’s going to get sorted anytime soon.

Not only has the government been shut down over funding for the wall but he has also taken to giving speeches on the issue on live television, one of which were so bad, even Fox Newsfact checked it.

It’s obvious that Trump really likes walls and wants to build a construct that will be so effective that no one can get around it, over it or through it.

Yet, back in 2004 Trump was all for people being able to evade walls and even gave public speeches on how to get around them.

A clip recently shared by The Daily Show shows Trump at Wagner College on New York’s Staten Island passionately talking about a ‘concrete wall’ and how you must do everything in your power to get to the other side.

Indian temple shuts for ‘purification’ after women enter shrine – Asia Times


The Sabarimala Temple in the southern Indian state of Kerala was closed in order for a “purification” ritual to be performed after two women below 50 years of age offered prayers at the shrine early on Wednesday morning.

The two women were the first to be able to enter the temple since the Supreme Court ordered an end to the decades-old ban on the entry of menstruating women to the shrine. Bindu and Kanaka Durga, in their early 40s, entered the shrine surrounded by security at around 3.45 am.

Pelosi mocks Trump on wall: ‘It’s like a manhood thing for him’ | TheHill


House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi mocked President Trump‘s desire for border-wall funding hours after a tempestuous Oval Office meeting, calling it a “manhood thing” for him during a private meeting with Democrats.

“It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him. This wall thing,” the California Democrat told members of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee in a closed-door meeting after returning to the Capitol.

Pelosi also relished in the fact that Trump said he would “proudly” take ownership for a government shutdown — something Democratic leaders were quick to seize on in a press conference following the extraordinary, televised meeting.

“But the fact is we did get him to say, to fully own that the shutdown was his,” Pelosi said, according to two sources inside the room. “That was an accomplishment.”

The dramatic showdown between Trump and the Democratic leaders came as leaders on Capitol Hill are trying to avert a partial government shutdown on Dec. 21. Democratic leaders have agreed to include $1.6 billion for border security in the funding bill, but Trump is demanding that the bill include $5 billion to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

That’s a non-starter for Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer(D-N.Y.) and most other congressional Democrats.

The president unexpectedly called in camera crews and reporters just before the negotiations, which quickly devolved into a heated shouting match between Trump and Democratic leaders, who traded barbs. The confrontation ended with no clear resolution in sight.

Vice President Pence was also in the room during the meeting, but largely stayed silent on the sidelines.

“It was so wild,” Pelosi described the meeting to her colleagues, according to sources inside the room. “It goes to show you: You get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you.”

Pelosi, who appeared to be riding high after her Oval Office showdown with Trump, is still trying to lock down the votes needed to clinch the Speaker’s gavel and has been under immense pressure from her left flank not to cave on the wall.

During the meeting, Pelosi and Schumer offered to pass a continuing resolution that would extend current funding levels, which include $1.3 billion for border fencing and barriers.

Trump did not appear receptive to the idea, however, as he repeatedly insisted on securing more money for the wall and threatened to shut down the government if he doesn’t get it.

Raking forests? Where did Trump get that idea from? – NZ Herald


Finland’s president isn’t sure where US President Donald Trump got the idea that raking is part of his country’s routine for managing its substantial forests.

Trump told reporters yesterday while visiting the ruins of the Northern California town where a fire killed at least 76 people that wildfires weren’t a problem in Finland because crews “spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things” to clear forest floors.

Watch: Giant spider web envelops coastline of Greek lake | Euronews


Spiders have been keeping busy at Lake Vistonida in north-eastern Greece. Over the last few days, large webs spreading for hundreds of meters across the lake’s coastline, have blanketed the entire landscape. The trees and shrubs have been completely wrapped in spooky grey webs.

The lake is located near the Vatopedi Monastery in the settlement of Porto Lagos, in the region of Xanthi.

Experts say it is a natural phenomenon that occurs when very high temperatures and humidity in the region cause an increase in the reproduction of insects such as gnats, which are a popular source of food for spiders, thus drawing several of the crawlers to occupy the area. Insects were seen trapped in the webs as the spiders were busily weaving.

A similar phenomenon was witnessed on a coastline in the town of Aitoliko, in western Greece, last month.

Republicans support gun-free


Well would you believe that.

Yes, I would, a case of ‘Do as I say, not do as I do’.

They deserve each other, but America needs better.

Opher's World

Well seemingly Republicans support gun-free zones for themselves but not for children. Seems guns keep everyone safe but when it comes to Republicans they can’t be trusted.

Sounds about right to me.

Hypocrisy????

via GOP supports (their own) gun-free zones

ALIEN SKULLS? Shock verdict after DNA tests reveal where ‘elongated heads came from’ : Express


DNA test results on the elongated skulls discovered in Peru have been released by a researcher investigating if the bones could belong to an alien race. The 3,000-year old Paracas skulls, with elongated craniums, have long been held up by UFO hunters as evidence of ancient alien visitations due to their extraordinarily huge foreheads.
