Politics: A Short Break for the Impeachment Hearings

I’m taking a short break to focus on the House Impeachment Hearings.

With newly released transcripts from the closed-door hearings, it feels
like the hearings began.

The testimony of today’s witness, Catherine Croft,  describes a foreign
policy designed to please, Vladimir Putin.

“In a briefing with Mick Mulvaney, the question centered around the Russian reaction,” she continued.

“What was the concern about the Russian reaction?” asked the staffer.

“That Russia would react negatively to the provision of Javelins to Ukraine,” she said.  The Daily Beast

Here are the Constitutional reasons for the impeachment of Donald Trump from The Beat with Ari Melber:

Hillary Clinton was right about everything

She’s still right.

For folks who doubt the seriousness of Russia’s 2016 attack on our elections, this is a screenshot I took on August 29, 2016, of the top headlines on BING. If you examine it, you’ll see a search string that includes the Anthony Weiner scandal. I did not run that search. My browser was hijacked.

1. Sun Tzu said: The art of war is of vital importance to the State.

2. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to
ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be
neglected.

Last week I posted photos of a chill afternoon at San Francisco’s Alamo Square Park.

Newsweek

I love San Francisco.

We like to start our anti-fascist marches with a group hug:

The Speaker: “I want you to go right up to that person and give that person a big ass hug!”

I couldn’t get into Alamo Square Park; it was packed and marchers were still gathering.
