White Power Saturday

1a - Copy

President Donald Trump promoted a new video Wednesday that featured some of his favorite hits. Job creation, stock market growth, low unemployment rates, regulatory rollbacks, high approval rating among Republicans — all pretty obvious content. Trump himself posted the video on Twitter, with the comment “Thank you for your support as we MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

But toward the end of the video, the video uses a symbol of a lion’s head, which, as writer Dustin Giebel and former Snopes managing editor Brooke Binkowski first noted on Twitter, was also used by the far-right publication VDARE.

The image at the end of the video Trump tweeted earlier was popular amongst the fascists of Lion Guard and the white supremacists of Vdare in 2016 pic.twitter.com/XBCWoRblvp

    Pullman wa weather is 30 °C, sunny and no shade. Up Valley Road past the almost deserted playfields to Terre View Blvd. Magpies and later on a very lazy hawk. Horses but no other livestock in evidence. Did pass a golfing party, the worst slicers into the rough, repeatedly, that I have ever seen.

    The runway reallinement has meant cutting down some trees in the creek to satisfy the bureaucrats. Jeeze, what stupidity in the regulations! Not bad enough to make me a Bundy Free Ranger, but not happy.

    So 133 minutes later I’m sitting here in the Birch & Barley, sipping ice water and my wine until I have cooled enough and rested enough to be interested, once again, in food. Too deenergized just yet.

    Regarding driving in Scotland. Went for Margaritas with Jill and Brian and they feel it will be no problem driving on the wrong side of the road. My advice was to NOT drive anywhere after they’ve had some drinks. They shouldn’t push their luck.

    One thing Jill said, “When you turn left, stay left.” There was a saying for turning right, too, but I’ve forgotten what it was. Maybe it’s if you turn right, stay left, lol.
