    Happy Birthday to Mrs. Obama, the best First Lady I’ve ever had. Hopefully she is having a whale of a time as she celebrates another year of life. She is aging beautifully and gracefully and I absolutely love her.

    She was the best First Lady this country have had in along time. Happy Birthday Michelle Obama.

    Attn: BobFr, and any others who may be interested – this is nearly a year ago, but very insightful, and may in retrospect shed a bit of light on what has taken place this past year. I feel it bears reading, although it is long. I found it on the home page of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs under today’s date.

      Yes, you are both welcome. I felt simultaneously impressed, intrigued and saddened. Here are all the hallmarks of what journalism should be, could be, once was. I was particularly relieved to absorb the quality of English language usage, actually readable! I’m glad you found it worth the time.

    Thank you NerdyWonka, for this post and all the other ones. You are the best. The Happy Birthday tweets from TOD family and so many others mean the world and show the great deep love and respect and gratitude we still feel toward our Forever FLOTUS, still Queen, Still hero, still leading and teaching and guiding us just by how she lives life daily. I listened to the speech from last October, the campaign season, posted in a wonderful tweet by PrettyFoot, in which our FLOTUS responds with passion, conviction, spirit and heart and power to the horrid words of the evil man in which he bragged about assaulting women. FLOTUS brings it all home and while it is very painful to hear it knowing that more than half of my fellow white women, just didn’t let that be a deterrent, and how much more ugliness has come from him since, despite the pain that brings, it is greatly uplifting to hear Michelle Obama speak the truth and spell out and bring home every detail that we need to keep in our hearts and heads, of what matters, what is true, who we are and what we have a right to in this world. I love her so much. I need to spend time with the beautiful book about her — I got it and have not taken the time to enjoy it. Happy Birthday to FLOTUS, happy everyday to her and her family. TOD brings it all together and that means the world to me.

    • January 18, 2018 at 8:02 am

      I agree. He is probably as racist as his charge he babysits… if not more so. The media has quickly forgotten his treatment of Rep. Wilson.

      In his role in DHS, wasn’t he a major factor in the ICE raids? Why else would 45 send Kelly to the hill if his thoughts were not aligned?

      • January 18, 2018 at 9:44 am

        He is as racist as the moron he is babysitting. Remember how he talk about the time when women were respected, then he turns around and disrespect Congresswoman Wilson. I guess he meant only white women. Just because he was a General does not mean that he is all that. One more thing, did Trump get to that doctor, because he sounded like a Trumpster with all that B.S.

      Lately I’ve been watching documentaries about WW2 and about Hitler. What was fascinating about the rise of the Third Reich was how Hitler as able to get his generals to do just about anything, even crimes against humanity. What is it in a man’s makeup that will convince him to do genocide? How does person’s moral code get so corrupted that he tries to exterminate an entire group of people?

      And please, take this to heart: The U.S. government is no longer the only threat to a free press as envisioned by the Founding Fathers. There is a new threat to a free and fair press whose mandate is to serve the governed not the governors. The new threat is corporate capture of the Fourth Estate. By interests linked to transnational organized crime.

      Corporate Capture of the Fourth Estate is INTENTIONAL. Their goal is to obscure their motivations while they destroy our faith in democracy and our institutions. If they can’t buy a media outlet outright, they have another tactic to force their narrative to be the only story told: kompromat.

      Russia is a mafia state. When you refuse to cover Trump & Putin’s connections to the Russian mafia, it looks from the outside as if the Gray Lady’s journalistic integrity has been captured by the interests of transnational organized crime.

      You can right the ship.

    US plans open-ended military presence in Syria.

    The US will maintain an open-ended military presence in Syria to ensure the enduring defeat of the jihadist group Islamic State, counter Iranian influence, and help end the civil war.

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said President Donald Trump did not want to “make the same mistakes” that were made in 2011, when US forces left Iraq.

    The US has about 2,000 troops in Syria.

    Mr Tillerson denied the US was training a Kurdish-led border force, but Turkey accused it of sending mixed signals.

    “US officials have made statements that refute one another,” said Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, whose country fiercely opposes such a move.

    “One day it was said that a new border force had been set up, another day they said they are setting up a unit with local forces in order to maintain security in the region after eliminating Daesh [Islamic State group, or IS] in the region. These are all confusing statements.”

    The US secretary of state said officials had “misspoke[n]” when they said the US was planning to set up a 30,000 strong “border security force” in northern Syria underpinned by the allied Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia.

    Trump administration bars Haitians from U.S. visas for low-skilled work
    Yeganeh Torbati
    5 MIN READ

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Haitians will no longer be eligible for U.S. visas given to low-skilled workers, the Trump administration said on Wednesday, bringing an end to a small-scale effort to employ Haitians in the United States after a catastrophic 2010 earthquake.

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the change less than a week after President Donald Trump reportedly questioned in an Oval Office meeting why the United States would want to take in immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to them as “shithole” countries. Trump has denied using that word.

    DHS said in a regulatory filing that it was removing Haiti from lists of more than 80 countries whose citizens can be granted H-2A and H-2B visas, given to seasonal workers in agriculture and other industries.

    Workshops help parents have ‘the talk’ with kids on what it means to be black in the US

    Winston Harris remembers watching the video of Philando Castile after he was shot by Officer Jeronimo Yanez of Minnesota’s St. Anthony Police Department back in 2016.

    “You know those seven shots … the video hit me so hard and so deep,” Harris, 19, told ABC News’ “Nightline.” “As each shot rang out I could feel it. Not like actually, but, like, I could feel it, like, each time, like, bang, bang, bang, like I could just feel it. Like in my chest like seven beats.”

    In Castile’s face, the Philadelphia native said he saw his own.

    “A video like that can have [an effect] on the person, you know, especially if he’s the same skin color,” Harris said.

      I swear to god just yesterday I was telling my son how proud of him that he made the A/B honor roll after I picked him up from school. And I told him with a good education he could be anything he wants to be. But then you have to tell your child how the world sees him or her. As an African American parent you have to balance the idea of telling your child to reach for the stars, all the while knowing in the back of your mind that their are powerful forces out there that will judge your child solely on the color of his or her skin.

        Strictly as a far-away observer (but also as a part-Irish great grandmother – trust me – I know things – Ha!), your son is fortunate to have you for a dad, Don. I can feel the love. And I’m thinking you feel doubly fortunate to have him as your son! Way to go on his making the honor roll. Please give him my congrats, along with everybody else’s. ❤

      “A video like that can have [an effect] on the person, you know, especially if he’s the same skin color,” Harris said

      Especially on someone who was not a criminal, a thug, but an African American man who was making a difference in this community and to many children. What do you say to AA kids especially after they lived in the age of PBO? Then the entire country decides they want to go back to 1864? They give a voice to the lazy, racists, stupid, ignorant people who want to bury their heads in the sand or tell us the TRUTH is a LIE and a LIE is the TRUTH.
