    hooray that 8 boys are now out of that cave in Thailand and receiving medical attention. The rescuers need to take another break before extracting the last of the 4 boys and their coach.

    I believe Boris wants to be PM and has decided to leave Mrs May to sink with the current lack of consensus of the cabinet re Brexit.

    He seems prepared to allow the government to fall so long as he gets his shot at the top spot.

    They interrupted the tv to bring a news report about 12 more Russians ( these ones being Intelligence Officers in Russia ) being indicted with conspiracy against the USA during the 2016 election.
    Charges include hacking the DNC, the Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
    Charges of conspiracy against the United States, money laundering and attempts to break into state election boards and other government agencies.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/13/u...e-hacking.html

    I think many GOP Senators and Congressmen/women will ignore these new indictments and say " who cares?? "
    " Show us anyone in the POTUS administration who was part of the campaign that is TIED to these Russians and then we'll talk about it " BUT........." do this AFTER the midterms, many of us have Districts that we need to win in "

    RSS Sir David Attenborough launched

    The RSS Sir David Attenborough—the polar exploration vessel that, in April 2016, participants in an internet poll overwhelmingly voted to christen Boaty McBoatface—launched on Saturday, with defensive research officials still defending their decision to override the results of the vote.

    Per the Guardian, British Antarctic Survey director Jane Francis addressed the controversy directly as the 423-foot (129-meter), 11,000-ton boat’s hull slid into the water from the Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead, near Liverpool, where its construction will continue. She said that Attenborough, a famous naturalist whose voice has narrated world-famous documentaries like the BBC’s Life and Planet Earth series, was a more fitting name for the ship:
    “This is a serious science ship that required the name of a serious scientist,” she said. “Its name recognises all the love and esteem the British public holds for Sir David Attenborough.”
    But she admitted that the furore around the name has helped to generate interest in the Ł200m ship and to publicise the survey’s mission to investigate whether warm waters are melting the glaciers and ice shelves of the Antarctic from below.
    “It’s given our mission a more human face,” she said/.
    The ship is intended to replace the increasingly obsolete RRS James Clark Ross (JCR) and the RRS Ernest Shackleton, the decades-old vessels that comprise the UK polar fleet today. It is equipped with modern scientific gear as well as a “moon pool,” a vertical interior tube stretching across decks and into the water that allows the deployment of scientific instruments in harsh conditions, per the BBC, and could eventually carry three autonomous submarines that could explore the underside of ice shelves.

    In Chicago this time......another instance where white people are calling the police on black people. So shameful. So disheartening.
    This woman ( Camilla Hudson ), well apparently her " crime " was presenting a coupon to get a free product.
    Oh my lord.....
    The CVS employees accused it of being a phony ( fake ) coupon.

    Thank goodness nothing happened to Camilla and the 2 employees were fired by CVS......I could not believe the store manager was shaking ( visibly trembling! ) as he was on the phone reporting this " criminal " Camilla.
    You can hear her standing her ground...

    just heard about this fatal shooting ( a store robbery ) in Florida...The victim ( Ayub Ali ) was the father of two students who had survived the Parkland school shooting that occurred at Stoneman Douglas HS on Valentines day this year. I cannot imagine the pain and shock this family is now experiencing.

    On a brighter note: Looks like Mitch McConnell finally grew a pair! As did Paul Ryan, finally!!

    http://www.wcjb.com/content/news/Hou...489003401.html

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell distanced Republicans from President Donald Trump's invitation for Russian President Vladimir Putin to visit Washington.
    McConnell said he and House Speaker Paul Ryan have made it clear that "Putin will not be welcome up here at the Capitol."
    The Republican Senate leader also backed away from Trump's suggestion Tuesday that any potential Russian interference in the upcoming midterm elections would be to favor Democrats.
    Instead, McConnell issued a warning, saying: "The Russians better quit messing around in our elections. I want to make that perfectly clear, the Russians better quit messing around in our elections."
    He said he's considering legislation that would hit Russia with stiff sanctions if they try to influence the elections.

    ALSO:

    Two key senators are joining forces on bipartisan legislation to protect NATO and impose new sanctions on Russia after President Donald Trump's recent foreign trip, which included a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
    Sen. Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, and GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham issued a joint statement Tuesday as Congress struggles to respond to Trump's shifting views on Russian interference in U.S. elections.
    The senators said the U.S. "must make it abundantly clear that we will defend our nation."
    The bill would slap new sanctions on Russia and require a Senate vote for any proposal to withdraw the U.S. from NATO. It's being crafted after related proposals were blocked last week. GOP leaders called for hearings instead. Hearings are set to begin this week.

    From USAToday:https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ion/791541002/

    WASHINGTON — In an extraordinary break with President Donald Trump, the top two Republicans in Congress said unequivocally Tuesday that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election and suggested that lawmakers may pass legislation to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
    House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., labeled Russia “a menacing government” that does not share U.S. interests and values and said he would be open to placing more sanctions on Russia for interfering in the election.
    “They did interfere in our elections — it’s really clear,” Ryan told reporters in Washington. “There should be no doubt about that.”
    A few hours later, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., speaking at a news conference, cited “indisputable evidence” that Russia tried to impact the 2016 election.
    “We understand the Russian threat, and I think that is the widespread view here in the United States among members of both parties,” he said.
    The strong words from the top congressional leaders came the day after Trump touched off a bipartisan firestorm by accepting denials by Russian President Vladimir Putin that Moscow interfered with the 2016 U.S. election.

    oh brother....at a recent rally playing to his base...Trump yelled about the fact that ONLY American citizens should vote in American elections....geez duh?? They do!
    He really thinks that somehow the millions of illegals in USA have found a way to cast a vote.
    That being said, he was promoting the popular GOP idea of implementing voter I.D. ( most people realize that this move impacts the very old and those living in very poor areas. )

    But the strangest part of his speech was when he said this!!! ( skip to the 29 second mark....or if you need your ears to bleed watch the whole clip....lol )

    Yes!! The Trump Eclipse! His entire body blocked out the Queen.

    Oh @Lynn49 didn't I tell you this before?? Whenever he is actually speaking I have to MUTE it as I get kind of nauseated by his voice
    ( and lies, incompetence and stupidity!! ) and I do flip the channel altogether if it is going to be a long event say with a foreign leader. Same thing goes for the lying Press Secretary Sarah Sanders...MUTE!

    I relish later on when CNN do their many segments reporting/discounting his/her lies of the day with FACTS or even later when the Late Night Hosts do a recap of what was said, then I only have to catch the tiny fragments of their comments, resulting in many belly laughs, which helps me sleep...... Thank Goodness.

    Carry on!! Avoid the real news.....lol!!!
