  1. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over... ....the captured ISIS fighters and families. The U.S. has done far more than anyone could have ever expected, including the capture of 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. It is time now for others in the region, some of great wealth, to protect their own territory. THE USA IS GREAT!

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    Trump's former generals, from James Mattis to Joseph Votel, sound an unprecedented warning From the beginning of his tenure, the president has given critics plenty of reasons to be excoriated. But we have heard little dissent from warriors — until now. ..... , Mattis is merely the latest in a line of commanding officers who have recently rebuked the president’s decisions. This collective decision to go against such entrenched military traditions should give their warnings even more weight. When the generals are speaking out, something is really wrong. .... When warriors of the caliber of Mattis and McRaven or Votel and Allen publicly reprove the president, citizens may properly conclude that our national security decision-making is truly dysfunctional and that the nation is dangerously at risk. ..... https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/trump-s-former-generals-james-mattis-joseph-votel-sound-unprecedented-ncna1069771?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma

    Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon @RepMGS . @RepJerryNadler just asked each witness in the @HouseJudiciary hearing on Election Security whether it was appropriate for a president to ask a foreign country to investigate a political opponent. 3/4 witnesses said no. The witness who refused to answer was from DOJ.

(1942) An English village is occupied by disguised German paratroopers as an advance post for a planned invasion. Dir: [Alberto] Cavalcanti LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW: D: Alberto Cavalcanti. Cast: Leslie Banks, Elizabeth Allan, Frank Lawton, Mervyn Johns, Basil Sydney, David Farrar, Marie Lohr, C.V. France, Thora Hird. "Wartime melodrama laced with humor about Germans invading a rural British community. Too sly and well written to be dismissed as mere propaganda; a most intriguing time capsule. Screenplay by John Dighton, Angus MacPhail, and Diana Morgan from a Graham Greene story. And remember: this story, told as a flashback at the end of WW2, was actually made at its peak, when the outcome was far from certain."

    Feds charge California investor who donated $900K to Trump inaugural committee Imaad Zuberi pleaded guilty to making almost $1 million in illegal campaign contributions to various presidential election campaigns and other candidates for elected office. ".......Zuberi's name surfaced last February amid reports that Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was questioned about Zuberi in the process of providing information to federal prosecutors investigating the Trump Organization and the Trump Inaugural Committee. Zuberi issued a $100,000 check to Cohen as part of a consulting agreement in February 2017, Zuberi's spokesman told NBC News.

    “There Is Definite Hanky-Panky Going On”: The Fantastically Profitable Mystery of the Trump Chaos Trades The president’s talk can move markets—and it’s made some futures traders billions. Did they know what he was going to say before he said it? ....... Traders in the Chicago pits have been watching these kinds of wagers with an increasing mixture of shock and awe since the start of the Trump presidency. They are used to rapid fluctuations in the S&P 500 index; volatility is common, of course. But the precision and timing of these trades, and the vast amount of money being made as a result of them, make the traders wonder if all this is on the level.

    Seth Abramson @SethAbramson BREAKING NEWS: Trump inaugural donor Imaad Zuberi has just been indicted in CA. ..... My research suggests that the feds want Zuberi as a cooperating witness against Trump associates and the Trump transition. The indictment brought today involves donations spanning a five-year period (2011 to 2016), but the focus of any cooperation is likely to be Team Trump. https://twitter.com/SethAbramson/status/1186751126382825472

    Racism in Trump's America

    Francis Maxwell @francismmaxwell · Oct 21 The fact that a sign commemorating the death of a 14 year old black child, killed by racists, has to be made bulletproof to deter racists from shooting at it, in the same state that racist monuments are erected proudly, pretty much sums up that we’re not ‘past racism’ at all.

On the other hand, Turkey is delighted with the outcome...." “I look at Trump and think: ‘May God grant him good health—and another term.

While Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam has since agreed to suspend the bill, protesters have demanded it be scrapped entirely and have called for resignation as well as looser election laws, more government accountability and overall greater distance from Beijing, which claimed sovereignty over the city as part of a "one country, two systems" framework following a handover from its colonizer, the United Kingdom, in 1997...

All are different - with distinct causes, methods and goals - but there are some common themes that connect them.
