Giuliani’s Big Reveal | Perspective

perspective

“…what concerned me most about the small lie was the danger of it becoming a habit. I’ve seen many times over the years how liars get so good at lying, they lose the ability to distinguish between what’s true and what’s not. They surround themselves with other liars. The circle becomes closer and smaller, with those unwilling to surrender their moral compasses pushed out and those willing to tolerate deceit brought closer to the center of power. Perks and access are given to those willing to lie and tolerate lies. This creates a culture, which becomes an entire way of life. The easy, casual lies – those are a very dangerous thing. They open up the path to the bigger lies, in more important places, where the consequences aren’t so harmless.” ~ James Comey, A Higher Loyalty

Rudy Giuliani stepping in to become a key player for Trump, when Trump’s the most desperate he’s ever been in his life, this because the vast majority of his inner circle have either fled or been removed, compels the public to draw some conclusions.

First, based on Comey’s insights above, and Giuliani’s actions the past two weeks, it’s clear that Giuliani has been accepted into Trump’s tight inner circle, implying that Giuliani is “willing to surrender his moral compass…and tolerate deceit.”

Second, after reading Rudy Giuliani’s statement on Wednesday April 25, 2018 that Mueller won’t find a “stitch of evidence” that Trump colluded with Russia, we’re left to interpret what Giuliani means by this (in light of the fact that there have been so many collusion dots already divulged to the public, that when connected, clearly indicate large swaths of collusion smoke, beneath which is seemingly an extensive collusion fire). Additionally, there are sealed indictments, guilty pleas, cooperating witnesses. So for Giuliani to state unequivocally that there’s not a “stitch of evidence” that Trump colluded, when we already see a wide trail of collusion by the Trump Campaign, we’re left to interpret Giuliani’s claim:

  • Giuliani is lying (which is entirely possible based on Comey’s insights)
  • The collusion was carried out by the Trump Campaign and close Trump allies, rather than Trump himself, so no Trump finger prints on the evidence; perhaps the game plan was that Trump would pardon everyone so no worries about all the crimes they’d have to commit, the “perks and access” would be worth it, and they wouldn’t do any jail time because of his pardon power
  • the word “stitch” means something to Giuliani; hmm… can we interpret it to mean that there’s not an inch of evidence, but rather 100 miles of evidence? I can picture a former prosecutor differentiating the amount of evidence in this way, so then sure, Giuliani would be telling the truth

Or perhaps Giuliani’s raging assertion that there’s not a “stitch of evidence” of Russia collusion and therefore Mueller’s investigation is a “disgrace,” is merely an attempt to hide Giuliano’s own ties to Russia collusion. After all, according to Grant Stern, a Miami columnist and radio broadcaster, Giuliani is closely associated with Sergey Lavrov, and “the Giuliani/Lavrov relationship represents the highest level link between Trump Campaign’s top surrogate and Russian President Vladimir Putin.” Giuliani is the top surrogate.

Based on this reality, we’re left to interpret that Giuliani coming in as “Trump’s attorney” for the Russia collusion investigation is actually a ruse. It’s highly probable that Giuliani was called in to be interviewed by Mueller because Giuliani is a subject, or even a target, in the investigation. Giuliani crafted this cover so the media and public wouldn’t know that he’s a subject / or target in the investigation.

We should learn more in a few days since Giuliani wants the Mueller investigation closed and put his reputation on the line by claiming he could make this happen in a “week or two.” As top Russian collusion surrogate, Giuliani’s interview with mueller indicates Mueller’s reached the top of the collusion food chain and he may actually be able to wind things up shortly.

More indictments soon, it seems.

Getting a Handle on the Russia Danger | Perspective

perspective

How do we stay three steps ahead of Russia (it’s tricky when our president is the enemy and he’s working so hard to fend off our nation’s traditional defense, the FBI)? To further thwart our defensive line, Trump/Russia has a loyal group of Russia surrogates, the GOP House Intelligence Committee, who’ve sold their soul to the devil – Putin.

So what are American citizens supposed to do now to protect ourselves?

STEP 1 (for me anyway): watch as many Russia/CIA spy thrillers as possible. Below are a few, but there are many more. I find that this really helps in broadening my understanding about the way Russia operates which helps with projecting into America’s future /our future.

  • Red Sparrow – 2018, Excellent film, helped me “imagine” the possibilities of what Russia is capable of; great because it’s present day
  • The Assets, My Name is Aldrich Ames – 2014, Highlights how easy it is for someone to get away with selling our nation’s secrets to a foreign enemy, this because colleagues don’t want to believe their coworker – who’s supposed to be a patriot, protecting our country and our allies – is actually busy undermining it. Very insightful considering our president appears to be in overdrive accomplishing this very thing.
  • The Sum of All Fears – 2002, Seems so real it’s terrifying. I can totally picture this happening; in fact, I envision someone plotting this right now
  • Hunt for Red October – 1990, One of my favorite movies of all times
  • No Way Out – 1987, Best Kevin Costner film. Movies were so riveting back in the day

The most gripping Cold War book I ever read was Nelson Demille’s The Talbot Odyssey. Eye-bulging books like this are mesmerizing, this one is impossible to put down. I’m going to re-read it now that Mueller has uncovered so much proof of collusion and the White House seems to be in melt down mode, last night Friday March 16, 2018 with Sessions firing FBI Deputy Andrew McCabe just 26 hours before he was supposed to retire. See? That’s such a cruel “Russia” thing for Trump Team to do.

STEP 2: Be on the lookout on Social Media. Turn it into a “Find Waldo” exercise. Find the Russia Troll and call them out. I see them everywhere. They have markers.

STEP 3: Russian trolls are actually easier to locate than they realize. They might look and sound like us on Social Media, but they don’t think like us. Instead what they do is deflect by screaming and shouting and attempting to humiliate. They’ve softened their approach a little bit this year, but if you get into a discussion with one on a comment board for a major News site like New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal etc, you soon realize they don’t understand how to think like an American. They can’t reason the same way American’s can. Instead, their tactic is to storm Social Media as abusers, much like Trump, attempting to get viewers/readers to not believe in what someone is stating by attacking the one posting. But this is actually their achilles heel. And it’s not something they can easily correct…which gives us the upper hand.

STEP 4: Trust your instincts. When you get that unsettling 6th sense type of feeling about someone online, learn to stay far away from them. Avoidance is a great defensive strategy

We can do this. This horror is unlike any war we’ve ever been in before. We’re all trying to make our way through the jungle on this. We have to help each other, and work diligently to create light in the midst of all this darkness.

Military Parade, Trump’s Ignorance is Monumentally Disturbing | Perspective

I was born into a military family that dates back to Pearl Harbor and beyond. My great uncle Gus was trekking to his plane the morning of December 7, 1941 when the bomb’s began to drop. He was injured, but survived, although his plane was destroyed.

One of my uncles graduated from West Point. Several cousins from Annapolis. A brother and many other cousins were ROTC. My ex-husband was an Air Force pilot. I’ve spent the better half of the past three decades enjoying the most phenomenal military events I could ever hope to experience:

  • Fleet Week Manhattan over Memorial Day Weekend (began in 1982)
  • Fleet Week San Francisco Bay
  • Thunderbirds and the US Air Force Air Show (x 7, these are annual events), Thunderbirds began in 1953
  • Blue Angels (dates back to 1946)
  • Twilight Tattoo at Arlington (Wednesday evenings at 7:00p May – August since 1961)
  • Sunset Parade at Iwo Jima (Tuesday evenings Spring – Summer, dating back to 1956)
  • And there’s many more annual tributes to our exceptional military forces

Trump appears to be oblivious to these annual national wonders. Based on his announcement last week of his desire for a North Korea style Military Parade in DC,  I was left with the impression that Trump has never had the good fortune of attending any of these time honored “American” traditions paying tribute to our heroic veterans.

How sad.

Further, based on the uncanny timing – midweek following the Nunes Memo that didn’t end up halting the Mueller investigation as Trump hoped– it’s reasonable to deduce that Trump’s mission was to use his North Korean style Military Parade to instill fear into the American citizens who oppose Trump and his alarming anti-American agenda…this would be the media, the resistance, all Democrats, protestors, and most importantly (as far as Trump is concerned) the Mueller Investigation itself.

I envision that perhaps Trump might have recalled (with glee) one lonely dark turbulent night last week, the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989, latching onto this as his weapon of last resort as the Mueller Investigation closes in. This is the only explanation that makes reasonable sense after the confluence of so many extreme news stories last week, out of which flowed the Military Parade brainchild.

It’s clear these exceptional military events listed above date back many, many decades. So the explanation Trump provided for a DC military parade isn’t rational.

Sure, the expense is a very sound reason for the Legislature and the military to block it. So the point is probably already mute. But the real takeaway here is extracting Trump’s motive for requesting a North Korea style Military Parade. This way we can have heightened awareness about Trump’s state of mind.

I’m sure all of us have wondered from time-to-time how this nightmare will end. I for one am exponentially more alarmed today than I was a week ago as I factor in Trump’s disturbing thought process that lead to his decision to initiate a massive military intimidation parade in our nation’s capital.

Can Trump Go To Jail? | Perspective

perspective
Trump’s Pending Interview with Mueller

The irony of what could potentially happen if Trump perjures himself while under oath with Mueller is pronounced. Trump’s incessant cry to “Lock her up! Lock her up!” during his 2016 campaign, creates the visual image of a boomerang turning and hurling its way toward Trump.

Can Trump actually go to jail if he lies to Mueller?

In the United States, “the general perjury statue under federal law classifies perjury as a felony and provides for a prison sentence of up to five years.”

A tweet by Congressman Ted Lieu yesterday evening (January 23, 2018) stated unequivocally “that there are no words in the U.S. Constitution that say the President can’t be prosecuted for committing crimes, including Obstruction of Justice or Perjury.”

Many governors have gone to jail. Ex-Governor John Roland of Connecticut went to jail twice. The first crime, was a corruption charge for accepting illegal gifts – ten month sentence. Roland returned to prison a decade later when he was convicted of seven charges, one of which was falsifying records, another conspiracy.

When Trump was deposed in 2007, after he sued author Timothy L. O’Brien for “raising questions about his net worth,” Trump lied 30 times during the deposition. The reason Trump sued O’Brien was that Trump claimed his net worth was $5 billion, but O’Brien learned and published that Trump’s net worth was really only $150 – $250 million. So it was a lie that landed Trump in the deposition in the first place.

Trump is 71 years old. His hourly habit, every day of every year, is that of lying, 24/7. It’s as though his brain is severely trained to utter whatever he wants to believe which makes him incapable of checking himself. The odds are 100% likely that Trump will lie under oath. Trump’s doctor just announced to the world that Trump has no cognitive impairment. So when we learn that Trump did lie to Mueller during the interview, Trump won’t be able to claim he’s cognitively impaired.

Earlier today, as Trump was heading to Davos, Switzerland…when asked by reporters if he’d agree to be interviewed by Mueller (remember, last week Mike Pence declined to speak with Mueller; Steve Bannon declined the week before that), but Trump replied, “I’m looking forward to it… I would love to do that and I’d like to do it as soon as possible.”

So, with a nearly 100% likelihood that Trump will perjure himself, and with the nearly 100% guarantee that Mueller can prove Obstruction, is it possible that Trump will land in jail?

There’s arguments on both sides I guess. No precedent on one, not against the constitution on the other. It seems likely that all the legal minds are busy strategizing. Mueller appears to have a big picture approach to everything though. Trump might end up guilty of lying and belonging in jail, but still not land there.

Maybe someone will mastermind a fitting punishment where the U.S. government confiscates all Trump properties and uses them to pay down the national debt that will begin skyrocketing by year’s end. Or better yet, cover all the vital programs for children, the elderly, veterans, the disabled, the Island of Puerto Rico, refugees, etc that Trump slashed.

And Trump will spend his retirement years in a middle class community in Queens, riding the 7 Train into Midtown, baseball cap pulled low hiding the contorted horror he feels about the fate that’s befallen him, earbuds stuffed deep into his ear wells, Billy Joel’s You May Be Right, I May Be Crazy drowning out his misery.

Closing In, The Russia Investigation | Perspective

perspective

GOLD8small

Trump’s Russian Collusion Developments

The House Intelligence Committee released the 312 page transcript of their interview with Glenn Simpson Thursday January 18, 2018. Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal investigative reporter who specialized on Russia, is the founder of Fusion GPS, the research organization that created the Steele Dossier. A key take away from the interview is that if Trump was laundering money with the Russians, which it’s fairly certain he was, after all, Trump has a 30+ year track record of laundering money, and was fined $10 million by FinCen in 2015  for “Significant and Long Standing Anti-Money Laundering Violations”…but according to Simpson, if Trump was laundering money with the Russians, then the Kremlin would be aware of this, and would use it as “powerful leverage” over Trump.

There were many moments across 2017 where the public questioned “what Putin had on Trump,” which seemingly made Trump such a strong Putin advocate and ally. There was speculation that it was the Pee Tape with Trump and prostitutes in a Russia hotel, which we all assume to be true. Especially now after learning about Stormy Daniels. So, money laundering and the Pee Tape? Is there more than that? Much more perhaps?

GOLD8small
Regulations = Consumer Protections

Trump is strongly anti-regulation, despite the fact that regulations are established and enforced for consumer protection. In fact, regulations are a vital cornerstone in developed countries. Third world countries generally don’t have any regulations.

Trump’s extensive history of being fined and sued for breaking laws and regulations may be one reason why he views regulations as his nemesis. During his campaign in 2016, it was revealed that Trump was engaged in  3,500 lawsuits. And Trump has suffered many hefty blows with fines. A few examples: $10 million; $750,000; $21 million; and more.

Trump’s hatred for regulations also might stem from the fact that he has no moral character. He has no patience. When constructing a tower on 5th avenue, or a casino in Atlantic City, regulations make everything take longer. Trump, an instant gratification kind of guy, and developer, views regulations as an obstacle to his immediate success.

Do you recall the 1974 film Towering Inferno?  The horror movie that was released before all the 1979 building codes were established? Trump has thrown us back that far. Massive skyscrapers blanketing the American landscape, and now no regulations. We were traumatized on 9/11 when the towers fell. Is this now what’s in store for use? Falling towers? Or at the very least, towering infernos especially in light of the fact that Mr. Anti-Energy Rick Perry was confirmed as Secretary of DOE.

This week’s deregulation focus was Mulvaney and his $0 budget for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Mulvaney feels the current $145 million reserve fund is sufficient. He’s supposed to have an operating budget + reserve fund, but he feels the reserve fund is enough as he begins plans to repeal regulations.

CLASSIFIED INFORMATION, SENATORS GRASSLEY & GRAHAM

Today’s breaking news story about the criminal referral filed with DOJ by Senators Grassley and Graham pertaining to Fusion GPS’ Steele dossier, is an interesting anomaly.

Is it legal for the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, investigating Russia meddling and Trump-Russia collusion, to publicly undermine evidence in this way, particularly in light of the fact that much of the hearing is classified?

What are the laws pertaining to knowing classified information, and using this knowledge to negatively impact evidence that supports proof in an investigation for the purpose of undermining the investigation? Is that obstruction of justice?

Following Trump’s election, Grassley has been a steadfast Trump loyalist. Harshly demanding of the American public after Comey was fired, “Suck it up, and move on.”

A month ago, Grassley seemed Intent on undermining the public’s view of the FBI’s independence by publicly revealing that an agent was removed from the investigation in July after it became clear he was pro Hillary and felt negatively about Trump.

Grassley has access to substantial amounts of classified evidence in the Russian investigation. As the proof piles up, Grassley retaliates by publicly undermining the investigation team itself. Mueller’s independence. And now the evidence.

His actions seem to clearly underscore Trump’s guilt. The vicious turbulence reminds me of a fighter plane breaking the sound barrier.

PUTIN & U. S. REGULATIONS

American Regulations are one of the pillars that make us a developed country, a super power. Third World countries don’t have regulations and look what a mess they are. Behind all the U.S. regulations are thousands of victims. Often hundreds of thousands. Sometimes millions of victims.

Regulations = Consumer Protection

So Trump is on a mission to eliminate our regulations, and knock down one of the fiercest pillars that stablize the country and protect the public.

We understand regulations on a personal level in our everyday lives. We make decisions to fund personal security and protection.

What family isn’t for a home security system? Do we mind paying for smoke detectors? Child safety locks? Cars with airbags? Cross walks? Safe and clean food, water, air? Of course not.

So why does our President think he can decide for us that he doesn’t want the American people to have protection for our financial assets. Net neutrality? Our natural resources?

Trump, through his clever word manipulation, is framing his de-regulation agenda so positively. Calling it over-regulation.

But it’s not over-regulation.

For every regulation, there are exceptions. If a situation falls into the “exception” category, you feel annoyed if you’re the one impacted. Sure. But you understand. When you think of the flip side, the no regulation side, you come to grips with your frustration and let it rest. (I was annoyed this week when I tried to deposit cash in a family member’s bank account who lived in another state. They needed immediate assistance. A check takes 48 hours to clear. Bank of America explained that unless I had an account with them, I couldn’t deposit cash into someone else’s account. It was a new regulation. Argh!)

So again, why has Trump eliminated the vast majority of our protections? We do not have a dictatorship in America, so how is he able to do this?

Trump doesn’t even seem intelligent enough to mastermind this massive de-regulation scheme. Further, what real president of the United States would want to harm America to this extreme? It doesn’t even seem probable that Trump has time to zero-in on de-regulating the USA.

Using the scientific method, I’m left to deduce that there’s someone else behind this nefarious de-regulation curtain pulling all the strings.

Putin!

I’m being serious. A complex action plan crafted before the election. Sun Tzu The Art of War again.

BlogNmbrs-3
STATES

“Fake it until you make it.” That’s what I’m deducing after the endless stream of unilateral Trump decisions.

DOJ upends states’ rights to legalize marijuana. Can the Department of Justice really up and do this?

In business, Trump’s a dictator.

We saw in January, Trump’s sinister attempt to turn the U.S. presidency into a dictatorship. Months of massive protest marches around the globe eventually creating a barrier for this Machievellian vision of his. He then became embroiled in the Trump-Russia Collusion Investigation.

But here we go again this week, with Trump’s DOJ overturning state laws by the flick of a switch. States are a constitutional check & balance. This reversal is the act of a would-be dictator with no respect for states rights or the three branches of government.

Trump has said he can tell a lie three times and by the fourth everyone will think it’s true. Apparently, he feels the same about his actions. If he fakes being a dictator long enough, eventually we Americans will believe we’re governed by a dictator and allow him to be one.

So no, it’s imperative we throw everything we have against this and block Trump from overturning our Constitution.

Quote, Senator Cory Gardner: “‘One tweet later, one policy later ― a complete reversal of what many of us on the Hill were told before the confirmation. Without any notification, conversation or dialogue with Congress, completely reversed.’”

Sun Tzu & Kim Jong Un | Perspective

BlogNmbrs
SUN TZU & KIM JONG UN

Sun Tzu’s Art of War is the centerpiece of modern warfare. These ancient Chinese principles have proven so useful and effective across milleniums, 6th Century BC, that they’re considered truths.

“The art of war is deception.” …  “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when weak.”

One can’t help but wonder what playbook Kim Jong Un is working off of.

Either he’s never heard of Sun Tzu and The Art of War and has no idea that as our enemy he’s supposed to lay low with his nuclear weapons so he can spring them on us unexpected, which may be the case (after all, he’s just a kid and may not be able to take good advice). Or, he is following Sun Tzu’s legendary wisdom, and is appearing strong when he is weak. Maybe he feels weak because he’s so young, and is shorter than the vast majority of world leaders and generals so must talk and act like a giant beast.

Whichever the case may be, as the Winter Olympics in South Korea approaches, I’m not nearly as apprehensive (with this in mind) as I was just a few days ago.

ENVIRONMENT & TRUMP & PUTIN

Trump’s unilateral dangerous initiatives make it clear his mission isn’t to represent the American people and our best interest the way a United States President is supposed to, and the way he claimed in his inaugural address he would do.

Between moving our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and now authorizing federal drilling along every coastline, who exactly is Trump working for?

Not only are the coastal governors strongly objecting to federal drilling along the entire U.S. coastline, but so is the US military.

It’s been universally affirmed that Trump is a moron, dotard, idiot…a long list of scathing adjectives that spell out that Trump is unfit to be president. He’s not even bright enough to think up these extreme anti-American policies. So one can’t help but wonder who’s really calling the shots. A clue might be that every one of these moves causes the United States great harm. Only an enemy would want to hurt us this badly.

So again, I don’t believe Trump is capable of masterminding these policies.

Nor are his children, who apparently suffer the same deficiencies.

These aggressive Trump policies strongly resemble the unilateral orders of a dictator. Which begs the question…are these endless knife jabs Putin?

Did Kushner succeed at establishing a back channel?

Bannon & the Deep State | Perspective

BlogNmbrs
BANNON & HIS DEEP STATE NARRATIVE

Let’s cut to the chase with Bannon and his Deep State narrative. We already have too many mountains to climb, so its best not to be burdened with a giant manufactured mountain that Bannon has created to throw at those who object to his extreme beliefs.

The Deep State now seems to mean all U.S. federal agencies. This because hundreds of millions of us have no real idea what the Deep State even is. So, when we read that a GOP Congressman is referring to the FBI and DOJ as part of the Deep State that needs to be purged, it’s a huge red flag we have to get a handle on Bannon and his indoctrination campaign.

The federal agencies of the United States of American are a vital part of our government’s inner workings and are required for us to exist and thrive. They are not a shadow government that has to be wiped out like Bannon & alt-Right would have us believe. Federal Agencies will never be perfect because they are filled with zillions of people who aren’t perfect. No operation with real people will ever be perfect.

Every large agency and organization grows weeds. We get this. We enjoy our many beautiful gardens and understand they need to be tended to on a regular basis.

This is very simple and basic and has existed since the beginning of time.

But the Congressman’s statement that the FBI & DOJ has to be purged because of the Trump-Russia investigation, is merely his aiding & abetting obstruction of justice to the independent investigation as it closes in on Trump’s inner circle.

But yes, since Bannon is trying to intertwine all these issues so he can label a vital organ a tumor and have it removed, we need to clarify by properly categorizing Bannon’s murky conspiracy theory.

Bannon is attempting to change the label of our federal agencies to “Deep State” for the purpose of implying something sinister and malevolent….this so he can use it as a marketing angle for his targeted “extreme” audience.

THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION

Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation following undisclosed meetings with Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak during the campaign and Sessions’ close association with Flynn. Trump had named Sessions as the chairman of his National Security Advisory Committee for his campaign on March 3, 2016. Flynn was named to the same committee. The two worked closely.

Flynn plead guilty to lying to the FBI about a call he had with Kislyak when they discussed sanctions. Sessions avoided any negative fallout from his three undisclosed meetings with Kislyak because he claimed to have “no recollection” about what was discussed. Perhaps Flynn can assist Mueller in helping Sessions recall the details of the meetings.

Trump & the Mafia | Perspective

BlogNmbrs
TRUMP & THE MAFIA

Trump’s connections with the Mafia date back to his casino days in Atlantic City, New Jersey, from the early 1980’s into the 1990’s. While building his casino empire in the mid-1980’s, Trump was in deep with Mob boss Nicky Scarfo and mobster Daniel Sullivan.

Nicky Sacrfo was the master of Atlantic City election rigging.

Trump was fined $447,000 in 1998 for money laundering, “the largest fine the federal government ever slapped on a casino for violating the Bank Secrecy Act.” Trump violated the rules 106 times the first year the Taj Mahal was open.

In 2015, Trump Taj Mahal was fined again for laundering money, this time for $10 million.

It appears Trump doesn’t correct mistakes even if they’re crimes. Apparently, if you make enough money from committing the crime (i.e. if Trump was rewarded with $700,000 million for laundering Mob money, and only paid a fine of $10 million, it’s very lucrative and might even afford one the opportunity of becoming a billionaire), so there’s no point in stopping.

These types of banking regulations and fines may be the root of why Trump is so anti-regulation.

BlogNmbrs-2
THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION

On December 5, 2017 Mueller subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for it’s loan records with the Trump Organization following Trump’s six bankruptcies and his inability to secure funding from traditional US banks.

According to Newsweek, Mueller “is looking into whether Russian money laundering fostered the Trump Organizations’s growth and development” after his many bankruptcies.  “Earlier this year, the bank paid $630 million to settle charges of laundering $10 billion for the Russians.”

Trump is ultra-sensitive about his finances, refusing to share his taxes. It appears this Deutsche Bank subpoena may have been another trigger that prompted the GOP loyalist aggressive assault on Mueller and his investigators the week before Christmas.

As we learned during Trump’s 2016 campaign, and his first year in office, Trump is retaliatory.

ENVIRONMENT

Extensive wildfires in Northern California’s wine country in October 2017 and the Thomas wildfires in Southern California raging for 3 weeks this December have tragically obliterated California’s greenhouse gas gains.

According to Live Science, the October wildfires emitted “7.9 million tons of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of about 25% of the average monthly emissions from all fossil fuel burning in the entire state of California.”

The air quality in some California cities grew so extreme it was paralleled with Beijing’s injurious air quality.

HEALTH

Our sense of smell is a simple and effective way to receive beneficial health remedies. Take for example, pine.

Have you ever run or walked through a neighborhood filled with pine trees? If so, you’ll quickly discover how therapeutic the air is. But even more important than the psychological benefits of breathing healthful air, pine air is also rich in antioxidants (both flavonols and bioflavonoids). Antioxidants help to fight cancer, heart disease and many other diseases.

The Japanese call this de-stress phenomenon shinrin-yoku, “taking in the atmosphere of the forest.”

There are no calories in air. And air is free!
