Monstrous Monday

1a

Still not convinced the Russians colluded with Donald Trump to make sure he became president of the United States? Greg Miller, national security correspondent of the Washington Post, suggests that you consider this:

Imagine a scenario in which US national security agencies uncovered secret communications between a powerful political candidate and a foreign adversary. Among the messages were statements of praise of that country’s authoritarian leader and requests for surreptitious campaign help – followed by evidence that enemy spy agencies instigated an interference operation that touched nearly every corner of the election.

Then once in office, that candidate proceeded to secretly demand that efforts by the CIA, justice department and Congress to uncover what had occurred in the election be shut down. Further imagine that he adopted that foreign country’s position on countless issues and attacked its enemies as if they were his own.

There is also the fact that on the day Trump declared “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 [Hillary Clinton] emails that are missing,” only a few hours passed before Russian hackers launched their first spear-phishing attacks against private email accounts used by Clinton’s personal office and 26 addresses associated with her campaign.

“All of this happened,” Miller writes. But instead of it happening in secret, nearly all of it occurred in plain sight, overwhelming the ability of most journalists to keep up and preventing millions of average voters from reaching the rather obvious conclusion that Trump is Vladimir Putin’s apprentice.

    Happy Monday!

    Hey, Dr. B…what’s in store for your dizzy dame rep tomorrow? Lotsa “too close to call” campaigns around the country….and lotsa $$$$$$ raised.

    From AP: Washington is thought to have three competitive congressional races: Eastern Washington’s 5th District race between incumbent Republican Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Democrat Lisa Brown; southwest Washington’s 3rd District race between incumbent Republican Jamie Herrera Beutler and Democrat Carolyn Long; and an open seat in the 8th District, which spans the Cascades from suburban Seattle to Chelan and Kittitas counties, where Republican Dino Rossi, a former legislator, faces Democrat Kim Schrier, a pediatrician.

      A flash of violet light and a thunder which rolled through the sky. The cloud burst so it was wet for the last third of the way home.

      Earlier when passing the St. Thomas More church, a light was on inside with one young lady cross-legged on the floor in front of the pews. As Monday is day off at the Newman Center as unusual as the subsequent cloud lighting.

      Day 2: 27+27=54 minutes.
