Quote of the day, from Cindy McCain wiki --

On occasion she has criticized foreign regimes on human rights grounds, such as Myanmar's military junta.[64] In April 2004, McCain suffered a near-fatal stroke caused by high blood pressure,[44][65] although she was still able to attend some events.[31] After several months of physical therapy to overcome leg and arm limitations, she made a mostly full recovery, although she still suffered from some short-term memory loss and difficulties in writing.[44] She owns a home in Coronado, California, next to the Hotel del Coronado;[59] her family had vacationed in Coronado growing up, and she has gone there for recuperation and family get-togethers.[59] She or her family own other residential and commercial real estate in California, Arizona and Virginia[29] and, including rental properties, McCain herself owns ten homes and part of three office complexes.[60][66][67] She is an amateur pilot and race car driver.[12]

Amazon book reviews of John Ehle. Trail of Tears.

Richard C. Geschke 5.0 out of 5 starsAmerica's Shame December 2, 2015 Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase Being a student of 20th century history and in particular WWII, I was always struck by the thinking of Adolph Hitler when he stated that he always admired how America was able to eliminate the American Natives by means of force and political means. He was relating this bit of history as it applied to his formation of pogroms in what is known as the Holocaust. John Ehle brings forth a detailed account of how the Cherokee nation located in Southeastern United States was forcibly removed from their homeland and resettled in Oklahoma. The author starts back in the late 1700’s with the explanation of the heritage and relationships of the Cherokee nation with the government of the United States. In doing this history Ehle shows the efforts made by missionaries and churches to “civilize” the Indians. In doing this history the author shows the intermarriages taking place creating half breed Indians who have learned the English language. With this the author shows such people as John Ross who was key in the many treaties made between the United States and the Cherokees. Going into the Jackson administration we see increased pressure for the resettlement of the Cherokees to move west of the Mississippi. Through a series of many treaties and payment of annuities for lands in the Southeast the Cherokee nation was just delaying the inevitable which was complete relocation to the West. Many of the Cherokee chiefs were bribed and given money for their own personal coffers and the day of the big treaty arrived. Treaty of New Echota, was the basis of the grand movement of the Cherokees to Oklahoma. The Trail of Tears caused much loss of life estimated from 2000 to 6000. They left their way of life behind which they lost their land and their raison d’etre. To me this represents of part of American history which was equal in shame to our heritage of slavery.

Writer John Banville--

Amazon review of John Banville's novel Dr Copernicus.--I find it engrossing and beautifully written.

Scientific, religious, and political revolution ByC. Collinson August 5, 2007 Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase This is the third Banville novel I have read and I find his writing exceptional and challenging. I first read The Sea and then Kepler. Doctor Copernicus, while less poetic than The Sea, is my favorite of the three. I think it is significant that Banville in his Acknowledgments mentions Thomas S. Kuhn's The Copernican Revolution as a major source. This becomes evident in the second half of the book where Banville does an exceptional job of integrating into novel form Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolution into the narrative structure of the novel. Yet, like the works of Iris Murdoch, the philosophy and science are woven seemlessly into the novel structure, never overpowering. John Banville will win the Nobel Prize for literature one day - mark my word. There are several strenghts in this novel that I would point out. First, Banville captured a medieval world of turmoil, disease, filth, ignorance, and death. Yet he also captures how exceptional intelligence may be embedded in this world, rise above squalor, develop an intellectual social network for passage of ideas, and produce a product that will communicate to the future ages. And yet, Banville's genius is also to negate these concepts by revealing that exceptional intelligence is still unable to grasp the thing in itself, the nature of reality. That human squalor is a reality in all times and that Copernicus distances himself from the human condition at a price. Copernicus is also a medical physician who is powerless against the horror of syphilis. Banville also allows us no illusion that science is a process of progress marching toward truth, but he has his character Copernicus recognize that his hypotheses in fact would soon be replaced by new truth systems and these new truth systems were only a micron closer to any final reality. Thus we are presented with a picture of human genius which is shown to be limited by the short life span of humans, our inability to focus and concentrate, the wild distractions of everyday life and the pain of the human condition. The life of Copernicus takes place during a theological revolution with political ramifications. Copernicus lives in Ermland, a Germanic state ruled primarily by his uncle, the Bishop Lucas. This tiny state falls between the Prussian and Germanic Lutheran forces and those of the Teutonic Knights and the Polish Catholic king. Thus Banville has his Copernicus experience the terrors of a theological revolution, as expressed when Copernicus must list the names of the over 2000 victims of the struggle between the Germanic states and Poland for the tiny Baltic states that lay between them. Whereas Copernicus, a Canon of the Catholic Church, no longer believes in the Medieval construction of God, neither Catholic nor Lutheran, he does cling to the rituals of Catholicism and believes that some human truth resides in these ritualistic acts that are independent of the current theology but may be linked to an ultimate reality beyond human comprehension. Thus he knows the process of revolution and he knows the revolution that his work will stimulate and he knows the costs of revolution. Banville creates a coldly calculating Copernicus, who uses the bright but egotistical Rheticus, to move his publications forward with strategic publications and timing. That this process was supported by Catholic Bishops would indicate that there is a sub-plot in the novel of subversion of the Lutheran faith and Germanic states by taking the manuscript deep into Lutheran territory for publication and distribution. Copernicus's theories were known and discounted by Martin Luther. The form of the novel was marvelously post-modern, using a distant all seeing narrator in the early chapters, letters and correspondence in later chapters, the acount of the angry Rheticus in the third quarter of the book, and Copernicus' death bed hallucinations as the final chapter. The character of Copernicus is dry yet we see how this orphaned boy, reared by the cold calculating Bishop Lucas, tortured by his hedonistic brother, and finally rejecting love that he feels for young Italian physician, prepare his cold soul for the distanced work of abstracting and producing his vision of a sun centered system of planetary motion. It is his angry rejected disciple Rheticus who tells us that the world has been fooled and that the Copernican model in fact does not place the sun at the center of the universe but only offers a model for planetary motion and that the sun now becomes a smaller force in a universe without a center. Thus the Biblical world becomes completely unhinged. The character of Rheticus is wonderfully written for he is bright but egotistical and this leads to his downfall and his being used as the method by which Copernicus could publish in a politically treacherous time. The conversations between Rheticus and Copernicus reveal that Copernicus grasped the nature of scientific revolution and thus was able to see his own work as launching a coneptual revolution with wide ramifications which one day would be overthrown also. This is an exceptionally well written novel, complex and rewarding. 3 people found this helpful

Quote of the day--Syria--from CIA FACTBOOK.

In September 2015, Russia launched a military intervention on behalf of the ASAD regime, and government-aligned forces recaptured Aleppo city in December 2016, shifting the conflict in the regime’s favor. Political negotiations between the government and opposition delegations at UN-sponsored Geneva conferences since 2014 have failed to produce a resolution of the conflict. Russia, Iran, and Turkey since early 2017 have held negotiations in Astana to establish de-escalation zones to reduce violence in Syria. Unrest continues in Syria, and according to an April 2016 UN estimate, the death toll among Syrian Government forces, opposition forces, and civilians was over 400,000, though other estimates have placed the number well over 500,000. As of December 2017, approximately 13.1 million people were in need of humanitarian assistance in Syria, with 6.3 million people displaced internally, and an additional 5.4 million registered Syrian refugees, making the Syrian situation among the largest humanitarian crises worldwide

Quote of the day--from Wikipedia article on Amerika--the 1987 TV miniseries

Backstory Towards the end of the 1980s, as the decline of the Soviet Union puts it in danger of losing the Cold War, the Soviet leadership makes a desperate gamble to rearrange the global balance of power. Four large thermonuclear weapons are detonated in the ionosphere over the United States. The resulting electromagnetic pulse (or EMP) destroys the nation's communications and computer systems, cripples the U.S. electrical grid, and affects any equipment that relies on computer technology, such as most late-model automobiles. With its ICBMs inoperative—and the National Command Authority unable to contact U.S. military forces abroad or their foreign allies in western Europe to launch a counterattack—the U.S. is forced to accept Soviet terms for surrender: unilateral disarmament, the end of the dollar as a reserve currency, and integration into the Soviet military/economic bloc. The United States quickly falls under Soviet military occupation under the command of Russian General Petya Samanov, and the U.S. President and U.S. Congress become mere figureheads for their Soviet overseers. The above events are implied in the miniseries, although never directly explained. The description is taken from the novelization of the miniseries, Amerika: The Triumph of the American Spirit by Brauna E. Pouns and Donald Wrye (Pocket Books, 1987), based on Wrye's screenplay. Communications between the administrative areas have been cut off, and the damage to the electrical grid caused by the EMP attack has never been fully repaired. Geopolitical situation A decade after its defeat, the contiguous United States is occupied by a United Nations peacekeeping force, the United Nations Special Service Unit (UNSSU), composed primarily of Communist state forces. . . . Those Americans who engage in dissent are stripped of their privileges and sent to exile camps, where they are anathema to the Soviets and their fellow citizens. Association and communication with the exiles is prohibited and forbidden, although some risk their own remaining freedoms by offering humanitarian aid. Production quotas have been imposed, and foodstuffs rationed, with the surplus being shipped to the Soviet Union. Against this background, Bradford ascends to the leadership as Governor General of Heartland. He acts a collaborator, hoping to reform the Soviet occupation from within with ideals of the old United States. Milford is released from the prison camp, hoping to be reunited with his children and fight to end the occupation and restore the United States. Denisov hopes to "salvage as much as possible" of the old U.S., while realizing that the U.S. essentially must cease to exist as a nation in order to appease the Soviet Union's leadership.

Quote of the day--from Darwin, Descent of Man, wiki-how many of these attributes does trmp display??

Joseph Jordania suggested that in explaining such human morphological and behavioural characteristics as singing, dancing, body painting, wearing of clothes, Darwin (and proponents of sexual selection) neglected another important evolutionary force, intimidation of predators and competitors with the ritualised forms of warning display. Warning display uses virtually the same arsenal of visual, audio, olfactory and behavioural features as sexual selection. According to the principle of aposematism (warning display), to avoid costly physical violence and to replace violence with the ritualised forms of display, many animal species (including humans) use different forms of warning display: visual signals (contrastive body colours, eyespots, body ornaments, threat display and various postures to look bigger), audio signals (hissing, growling, group vocalisations, drumming on external objects), olfactory signals (producing strong body odors, particularly when excited or scared), behavioural signals (demonstratively slow walking, aggregation in large groups, aggressive display behaviour against predators and conspecific competitors). According to Jordania, most of these warning displays were incorrectly attributed to the forces of sexual selection.[45]

Quote of the day--from John Dean (Watergate) wiki--

Cooperation with prosecutors On March 22, 1973, Nixon requested that Dean put together a report with everything he knew about the Watergate matter, and even invited him to take a retreat to Camp David to do so. Dean did go to Camp David and performed some work on this report, but since he was one of the cover-up's chief participants, this report-writing task placed him in the difficult position of relating his own involvement, as well as that of others, and he correctly concluded he was being fitted for the role of scapegoat in the cover-up by those higher up. Dean did not complete the report.[15]

Retired Admiral McRaven rebukes trmp in strongest terms

Planner of bin Ladin raid says, "Revoke mu security clearance too."

Omarosa's book Unhinged. I've read the online sample and like it. I think she is telling the truth. I suffered through such a made up firing from Radio Free Asia at the hands of a similar lying poop named ST. So I believe it, and I and all 2 of my siblings have asthma which is triggered by stress. One can't measure evil, so one can't say that Kelly and DJT are "more evil" than the ppl I faced, but certainly they are at a higher level of power and this does look like intimidation and threats and trumped up charges, look to see K and djt and whole bunch of them go down the drain, glug glug. 8-16-2018

Omarosa on trmp "Don't give him oxygen." Don't like the way she laughs though, sounds artificial. But yes, she has out-trmped trmp. And it must mean that she will help bring him down. That trmp ship is definitely sinking. And she had all the material when she was fired, and set to work on book right away. That sounds smart to me. 8-15-2018

Peter Strzok fired from FBI for "anti-trmp texts" but it does not mean that much. it's trmp!!! who's on a witch hunt against DOJ and FBI,in hopes he can get Mueller's investigation shut down. The pendulum goes back and forth, but I believe in long run truth will win. FBI ethics office recommended demotion, already done, but "senior official" not named overruled and fired. Stay tuned. 8-13-2018

Mark my words, Putin is getting ready to dump trmp. Once Pee Tape appears it will be game over for orange 45.

Ha--Mr T's trade wars and result. He did manage to wreck Turkish economy and lira. Many consider strongman Erdogan his friend,at least fellow dictator he looks up to, ie Turkish dictator and would be Am one. Let's see what emerges Monday and Tues as Manafort trial winds up. 8-12-2018

He really can't mess with Putin, who is smarter than he is--

trmp calls Omarosa a low life. He's a high life???? Anyone wonder why all the books written about trmp paint the same picture?? 8-12-2018

Omarasa says he saw germaphobe trmp eat a piece of paper.

News organizations should take the offensive, rather than just defensive--should call back trmp's terms directly to him, maybe crash his twitter feed with fake president, he just makes things up etc etc.

70 news organizations combine to counter allegations of fake presdt. It won't be enough. Instead they should call names back at his holy shit. 8-12-2018

How could all these authors be wrong? Intelligent people who have seen trmp up close for long periods of time, who have thought about it from afar,

Since the inauguration, trmp only goes to 1. his power base 2. places where he has to go, or it will look pretty bad. 3. His own properties, Mar a Lago, Beminster etc etc. Looks like he is extremely insecure, craves praise, yet compulsive liar, has to brag. James Comey said in an interview --"to fill up the hole here" pointing at his chest. trmp thinks he can manipulate the world, but he has only boot lickers near him. He does not know how and cannot inspire true dedicated people. This is an historic moment when Americans turn against an evil dictator.
