Energize An Ally Tuesday
You know about the Kremlin Annex, right? It’s Lafayette Park in front of the White House where, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 7:30 ’til 9, “thought masters, activists, craftsmen, luminaries, and other patriots assemble outside our White House of the United Mood so that the Traitor-in-Chief knows we won’t stand for his dangerous policies and behavior, and ongoing assault on our government and fellow citizens.” They’ve been making a delightful furiou racket since July of last year, and today they’re adapting to the times 😛 TAGEND

JEERS to the projection infection. Whenever the Republican accuse anyone of doing something underhanded, you can bet your fleshy derriere that they’re the ones up to no good. And so it came to pass Sunday night–thanks to some decent digging by the AP–that the loudest enunciates condemning the Bidens for something something something in Ukraine were the ones doing the something-ing :
As Rudy Giuliani was propagandize Ukrainian officials last spring to investigate one of Donald Trump’s main political competitors, a group of individuals with ties to the president and his personal lawyer were also active in the former Soviet republic. […]
These guys make this guy look like an angel.
This circle of businessmen and Republican donors touted connections to Giuliani and Trump while trying to install brand-new administration at the top of Ukraine’s big position gas companionship. Their plan was to then steer lucrative contracts to companies controlled by Trump collaborators, according to two parties with knowledge of their plans.
[ T] he affair demonstrated how those with ties to Trump and his administration were following business deals in Ukraine that went far beyond advancing the president’s personal political interests. It too raises questions about whether Trump allies were mingling the enterprises and politics just as Republicans were calling for a probe of Biden and his son Hunter.
In the immortal commands of–[ checks indicates ]– Donald Trump last Friday : “Let me tell you, I’m merely interested in corruption.” You don’t say.
CHEERS to the dark-green vitality coup: Maine edition. Now that our fossil-fuel-worshipping teabag governor Paul LePage and his legacy are decomposing in a compost pile out back, the race is on to ramp up Maine’s solar power capacity. There’s serious sunny coin to be made here, and The Portland Press Herald did a neat deep-dive into the rival underway to persuade land owners with wide-open pastures and proximity to power grids to let solar raises put down some seeds 😛 TAGEND
A recent law fostering enormous solar activities, combined with either the vigorous clean-energy goals of Gov. Janet Mills( D ), have exertion companies and developers from across the country trying to lock down prime areas for dozens of multi-million dollar community solar raises. The most plea areas are on flat ground, with a southern showing near high-voltage power lines and substations. […]
Coming soon to a country of Maine near you.
Suddenly, Maine is on the radar of the national solar industry. It’s joining other governments like Massachusetts, which has had policies heartening parish solar since 2008.
And like an old-time gold rush, prospectors are staking their argues, studying circuit planneds and property tax records to zero in on the most promising places. The projects that actually get improved will have to overcome many obstacles, including possible defiance from neighbours and pending specifications is targeted at protecting Maine’s valued crop and pastureland.
Right now “owners ” and force business are still in early negotiations over installation of the solar arrays. You might say they’re having…
Look, I know you’re in a hurry for my luminou punch line and I don’t accused you, but let’s really enjoy this hushed instant together on a slothful Tuesday morning, and take a second to give thanks for all the bounties upon us–like squirrels, for example–as we look forward to a daytime filled with wonder and infinite possibilities, because isn’t that why we’re here on this planet in the first place and okay that’s long enough here it comes 😛 TAGEND
Thank you so much. You’re extremely kind. Please, have a seat.
JEERS to dotard diplomacy. As the refined macrocosm reacts with disgust at our so-called commander-in-chief’s betrayal of our Kurdish allies in northern Syria( even Pat Robertson is threatening to damn him to hell over it ), Trump’s “beautiful, perfect, unprecedented in the history of our country” deal-making with North Korea is going about as well as you’d expect :
[ D] iscussions between the two sides in Stockholm broke down within exactly hours following an eight-month stalemate.
“Yes, I can feel it. His wind-up key goes in here.”
The North Korean Foreign Ministry said the Trump administration was “misleading the public opinion by touting ‘good discussions, ‘” The Washington Post reported, and it simultaneously warned that if the US did not change its approach by the end of the year, then relations between the two countries “may immediately come to an end.”
“We have no intention to hold such sicken arbitrations as what happened this time before the US takes a substantial pace, ” a North Korean Foreign Ministry representative was quoted as saying in a state news report cited by The Wall Street Journal.
Details are incomplete as to why the talks broke down so quickly, but one generator hints it may have had something to do with Trump’s parties asking the North Korean delegation why their purpose was taking so long and could they please assure a menu.
JEERS to Bovines of Mass Destruction. On this date in 1871, the Great Chicago Fire has broken out after Nancy Pelosi knocked over a lamp in Mrs. O’Leary’s barn to try and incinerate damning prove is confirmed that George Soros initiated the deep state to plagiarize the 2018 midterm polls. Or, if you prefer the non-Breitbart News version: it was a cow. Despite the shocking shatter and loss of life, there was a bright side: the T-bones were excellent that night.
CHEERS to shining ribbons for bright minds. It’s Nobel Prize Giving-Away Week–that most wonderful time of year when I can confirm that, relatively speaking, I’m one dumb-as-rocks man-child with a brain that resembles avocado dip past its sell-by date. The latest win announced yesterday in the “Medicine, Physiology, or Dessert Topping” category heralds from…USA! USA! USA! Actually, it’s three scientists( two Americans, one Brit) happily sharing the trophy for their pioneering work in…well, let’s just say you’re gonna want to take a deep breath before you read this :
Animals need oxygen for the conversion of food into useful energy. The fundamental importance of oxygen has been understood for centuries, but how cadres adapt to changes in levels of oxygen has long been unknown.
The one in the middle also plays the spoonfuls.
William G. Kaelin Jr ., Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg L. Semenza discovered how cadres can sense and adapt to changing oxygen availability. They distinguished molecular machinery that modulates the activity of genes in response to varying levels of oxygen.
The most common way cells adapt to a reforming cadre environment, according to the researchers: darknes classes.
CHEERS to civility. The “Complete Book of Etiquette” was first publicized 67 years ago, on October 8, 1952. Lesson# 1: Be nice to everyone. Lesson# 2: If you don’t feel like following Rule# 1, aim for the shins. And have a nice day.

CHEERS to Groundhog Day: Unwinnable Struggle volume. Oy. President Obama is struggling mightily to figure out what to do about Afghanistan. It’s a decision that will have serious consequences for the military, the American parties, the treasury and, last-place but least, the political scenery. What to do? What to DO ??? Well, Punxsutawney Palin has spoken. Sarah the Seer briefly poked her head out on Facebook this week to insist that we must throw every army we’ve got into the fight or else! Which can only necessitate one thing: the 100 percentage remedy solution–with a zero percentage perimeter of error–is to get the hell out. America thanks you for your service, ma’am.[ 10/8/ 19 Update: We’re still there. Why ?]
And merely one more…
