Bribes For Pardons


Dammit, you’re correct!! … “we are finding out more and more dirt about Trump corruption on a daily basis. Can you imagine what we’ll find out in the coming months and years? Hell, we’re still discovering shit about the Nixon administration that makes us say, “DAMN.”

This just in: Donald Trump is corrupt. Oh wait. We already knew that.

Details remain sketchy, but last night, reports came out that federal prosecutors have been pursuing an investigation into potential bribery in connection with an effort to secure a pardon from Donald Trump.

Last August, Chief U.S. District Court Judge Beryl Howell issued an opinion in a form that redacted the name of the person seeking a pardon…and offering to make a contribution to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign…where a lot of the funds wind up in Donald Trump’s pocket. The judge granted prosecutors permission to examine emails from lawyers seeking the pardon for whoever their client may be.

How does that work with this Justice Department? Attorney General William Barr, despite being unable to find any evidence of voter fraud, is basically Donald Trump’s henchman, poodle, and personal lawyer. The guy had the department act as Trump’s personal…

Arecibo Observatory …. “💫 ‘Drone Footage of Actual Collapse’ 💫 ….

ARECIBO OBSERVATORY ACTUAL COLLAPSE VIDEO

Two days ago, on December 1, I woke up to the news that this iconic landmark in Puerto Rico had collapsed. I knew it was damaged, I knew it was neglected, I knew they had decided to close it.

It was still surprising and emotional to learn that it had collapsed.

More so now as I can watch the actual video.

===========================================

The National Science Foundation has released remarkable footage of the Arecibo Observatory’s 900-ton platform falling into the 1,000-foot wide (305 meters) dish below.

A drone happened to be performing an up-close investigation of the cables that hold the platform above the dish as they snapped.

~~Published December 3, 2020~~

Videos released Thursday by NSF show both the drone footage and the view from a camera in the visitor center that shows the platform falling into the dish just above the jungle floor in Puerto Rico. Two massive chunks of the cement towers that the cables were attached to can also be seen falling.

Two of the cables had previously broken, one in August and another in November, destabilizing the dish.

the trump presidency in 4 photos


Pictures say a thousand words … these are perfect!! Thanks for the post!!

Somebody once said photography makes us all tourists in another person’s reality. If that’s true, and I suspect it is, then…wait. You know, if I had to guess, I’d guess it was probably Susan Sontag who said that. I mean, she was always offering some weighty opinion about photography, and she had the terribly annoying habit of generally being right. Anyway, regardless of who said it, let’s acknowledge the truth of it. There’s absolutely no way to accurately depict four years in anybody’s life in four photographs, let alone the life of one of the most powerful people on the planet. So this is really just a tourist’s…wait. I had to check, and yes, it was Sontag.

The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people’s reality, and eventually in one’s own.

Okay, back to my point, such as it is. My point is that this is basically a tourist’s…

Fudge Christmas


Me thinks it’s way beyond ‘fudge Christmas’ … there’s so much more to ‘fudge’!! Anyway … just a thought!!

I don’t begrudge Melania Trump for her comments about Christmas. I’ll say it too. Fuck Christmas stuff. Fuck Christmas decorations. Bold, eh? I just don’t really care and most Christmas music, to my ears, is total crap with there being only four good Christmas songs. OK, I don’t totally hate Christmas. I think it’s just the music and crass commercialism while other people are depressed and destitute. When I see the commercial of the guy buying two trucks for Christmas, I’m like, “fuck that guy.”

But back to Melania, she wasn’t cut out for this. Like her husband is a terrible president, Melania is a terrible first lady. It’s not just Christmas she doesn’t care about. She doesn’t care about being First Lady and it’s not a position she wants to hold. What the hell is “Be Best” when her husband is a cyber bully? What’s up with the garden…

MY MOTHER AND MY FATHER

Both of them were born in Puerto Rico, in different towns in the Island. In the early 1930’s, they traveled to New York City where they met and eventually married in 1934.

(It was definitely way beyond one year ago!)

Lightly Child, Lightly


Daybreak … “I consider the light that enters the room in the early hours of the day as a messenger of the sun … ” – Etel Adnan, from Shifting the Silence (Nightboat Books, October 27, 2020).

Live & Learn

I consider the light that enters the room in the early hours of the day as a messenger of the sun, a direct voyager, a particle, a wave, who knows, but an object of sorts that left its solar source, covered miles, and landed on my skin. So the universe constantly visits us while waiting for us to reverse that itinerary.

—  Etel Adnan, from Shifting the Silence (Nightboat Books, October 27, 2020)
