SERENA’S DIAMOND GOODBYE

Serena Williams showed she’s determined to exit her glittering sporting career in style – in both the tennis and fashion stakes – waltzed on court at Arthur Ashe Stadium looking like a rock star, and leaving with a round two match ahead of her. 

In front of a 25,000-strong celebrity-packed crowd, Williams arrived to chants of ‘GOAT‘ and appeared every inch the queen of tennis glamour in a show-stopping bespoke Nike dress with crystal-encrusted bodice and train, which was inspired by the ensembles worn by figure skaters, the brand revealed. 

Williams, 40, who announced her retirement – without actually using the word – in a Vogue interview earlier this month looked sensational in the shimmering all-black tennis outfit, which included a skirt that comprised six layers – to represent each of her six US Open wins.

This is a historical fact!! … “Mikhail Gorbachev refused to go to war to preserve the Soviet Union. Vladimir Putin is using war to build it back.”

When I was a kid, I accepted that the world was going to end in my lifetime through nuclear war. In a way, it was kinda like the kids today who never lived in a world before 9/11. Until 1990, I had never lived in a world without the cold war. It was part of my culture. My son was born in 1990, so he barely missed it.

I was born a few years after the Cuban missile crisis, but I knew all about it. It was in my history books. Some of the first news events I noticed were about the cold war. I watched President Carter boycott the Moscow Olympics and then watched Russia boycott the Los Angeles Olympics. I watched on TV as Russia illegally invaded Afghanistan, which we didn’t learn anything from. I watched as we funded Afghanistan’s fight against Russia the same way Russia funded…

What’s Next For Liz?


Just think about this … “There are those out there that like Liz and think she would do well as an independent presidential candidate … I do not agree … in fact she would probably help Trump (if he decides to run).”

In Saner Thought

The mid-terms are just a mere 60 days away and time for IST to take a closer look at the possibilities of our vote.

The big story is that Liz Cheney was beaten in Wyoming in the GOP primary.

So what’s next for the beaten Repub?

But first let’s talk about Liz for a moment…..

Liz Cheney didn’t do the one thing she was meant to do: convince any of her fellow Republicans that Trump was a threat to the Republic and, by extension, the “values” of the Republican Party, because Trump’s “values” are now symbiotic with those of the GOP. So, she was a failure. In fact, the Cheneys–Dick, Lynne & Liz–have been agents of political corruption since Dick’s tenure in the Nixon Administration, steadily eating away at whatever frail ethical foundations the party may have had for three decades, rotting clean through by 2001–the detritus providing the seedbed…

Lindsey Predicts a Riot


Lady G seems the have her panties in a wad!! He said this on one of the Snday shows. By yesterday he had changed his tune!! … “South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham appeared on Fox News yesterday and said, “If they try to prosecute President Trump for mishandling classified information after Hillary Clinton set up a server in her basement, there literally will be riots in the street. I worry about our country.” — I say — f*ck off!!

South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham appeared on Fox News yesterday and said, “If they try to prosecute President Trump for mishandling classified information after Hillary Clinton set up a server in her basement, there literally will be riots in the street. I worry about our country.”

Lindsey Graham should know better. This isn’t a warning. It’s a threat. I worry about our country too, but I worry because sycophantic dandy goons like Lindsey Graham hold seats of power.

The investigation of Hillary Clinton and her server has nothing to do with Donald Trump. In 2019, the State Department (under Donald Trump) conducted an inquiry and came away saying, “There was no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.”

Donald Trump’s State Department said there was no “deliberate” mishandling of classified information. In case you’re a Republican, “deliberate” means intentional. Did Hillary Clinton intend to mishandle classified material?…

MTG PPP


And there are plenty more GQP hypocrites!! … “Marjorie Taylor Greene had $183,504 in Paycheck Protection Program loans forgiven, which were given out by the U.S. Small Business Administration during the COVID-19 pandemic? I’m not good at math, but I’m pretty sure $10,000, and even $20,000, is less than $183,504.”

It’s completely unfair,” said Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. “Taxpayers that never took out a student loan, taxpayers that pay their bills and maybe never went to college and are just hard-working people, they shouldn’t have to pay off the great big student loan debt for some college student.”

But is it fair that Marjorie Taylor Greene had $183,504 in Paycheck Protection Program loans forgiven, which were given out by the U.S. Small Business Administration during the COVID-19 pandemic? I’m not good at math, but I’m pretty sure $10,000, and even $20,000, is less than $183,504.

Rep. Mike Kelly said, “Asking plumbers and carpenters to pay off the loans of Wall Street advisors and lawyers isn’t just unfair. It’s also bad policy.” Yeah, that guy got $987,237 in PPP loans…

ONE WEEK AGO YESTERDAY

A loved soul was called back to the heavens.

The only reason we can embrace is that the Lord came for him and said: “Your job here is done. I need you more now.”
