Six years ago today, our nephew Adam was killed in a car crash. Right about now, his friends and co-workers at our office are gathered to honor Adam’s memory by sharing a shot of Dewars, Adam’s favorite drink.

We’ve been watching the young speakers at the Washington, DC, “MARCH FOR OUR LIVES” rally, and I am in awe of them. One poised and eloquent speaker is an 11-year-old girl. Right now an 11-year old boy who lost his brother to gun violence is speaking. These “kids” have been forced into early adulthood by horrific events in their lives, and each and every one of them is more than a match for that man-baby terrorizing our White House and our country.
Let the battle begin.
This is our weekend open thread.

Sessions fires McCabe from FBI
H/T The Hill
Time speeds up, the wheel of time turns faster
Mueller crosses the red line of death,
The Prezidunce orders Sessions to Order Rosenstein to fire Mueller, Rosenstein refuses, so Sessions fires him.
Sessions then fires Mueller, and the incompetence-in-chief fires Sessions.
Congress blusters about impeachment, and the nation holds its collective breath…
Donald Trump’s reality show mass-firing threat is a dangerous gimmick
It’s eroding American governance.

The secret Seychelles meeting Robert Mueller is zeroing in on, explained
As usual, Vox is doin’ some ‘splainin’ of nefarious goings on by the Trump criminal cabal…
“George Nader — an adviser to the de facto leader of the United Arab Emirates — is cooperating with Mueller’s probe. In a sign of his importance to the investigation, Nader testified before a grand jury last week”
“That’s big because Nader helped organize, and attended, that curious Seychelles meeting on January 11, 2017, shortly before Trump’s inauguration. The meeting brought together Erik Prince, Trump donor and founder of the private security company Blackwater, with Kirill Dmitriev, who manages a Russian sovereign wealth fund and is thought to be close to Vladimir Putin.
Anonymous sources have long claimed to reporters that the purpose of the Seychelles meeting was for Trump’s team to covertly communicate with Putin’s team. After all, it happened just weeks after Jared Kushner reportedly told the Russians that he wanted to set up a back channel through which they could communicate.”
More scheiss, giant fan…What could possibly have followed???
Timing of Trump tariff announcement still up in the air
I am still trying to trace down the so called ‘evidence’ that China is dumping steel in the US.
There’s a statement from Canadian Banking Firm CBIC economist that Canada is possibly involved, but China does not even show up in the top ten import countries, and VietNam is 10th at 2%. Perhaps it’s coming through India, but you’d think it would be easy to investigate. If a country is exporting more steel than it has capacity to produce, then duh…I think this steel dumping issue is a giant red herring.
Go after intellectual property theft, you idiots.
