It’s a strange weather day with only 58° forecast and sunny, so the sun hitting the wall makes my room hot, and the open window makes it chilly, depending on my location in the room.

From The New Yorker: Donald Trump said on Friday that his I.Q. is “even higher” now that he knows that the United States Virgin Islands are part of the United States.

“Quite frankly, a few weeks ago, when I learned that Puerto Rico was a part of the U.S., I thought that that boosted my I.Q. to a whole new level,” Trump said. “Now that I also know about the Virgin Islands, my number must be off the charts.”

He said that he was eager to retake his I.Q. test because of “all the amazing things I learned this week.”

Dang Andy! I think the mere mention of Virgin Islands lowered Trump’s IQ, as all the blood flowed out of his itty bitty brain into his itty bitty pecker, as he tried to grope them. RESIST!!

Trump said, "It’s not Trump." He lied. It is Trump. He has been feeding hate to Alt-Right Republican Nazis from the beginning of his campaign through the present. If you are a Republican, and this isn’t you, it’s time to get out, or accept your complicity in what these Nazi criminals do. RESIST!!

From NY Times: North Korea’s success in testing an intercontinental ballistic missile that appears able to reach the United States was made possible by black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory with historical ties to Russia’s missile program, according to an expert analysis being published Monday and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies.

The studies may solve the mystery of how North Korea began succeeding so suddenly after a string of fiery missile failures, some of which may have been caused by American sabotage of its supply chains and cyberattacks on its launches. After those failures, the North changed designs and suppliers in the past two years, according to a new study by Michael Elleman, a missile expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

Such a degree of aid to North Korea from afar would be notable because President Trump has singled out only China as the North’s main source of economic and technological support. He has never blamed Ukraine or Russia

How ironic! Trump threatens war over missiles, when the same person, who put him in the White House, Putin (R-RU) is responsible for North Korea’s missile tech. RESIST!!

Some may think I’m talking about Kim Jong Un (R-NK).  I’m not.  I don’t think Kim is a madman.  His rhetoric is an act for domestic consumption only.  He and his repressive dynasty have survived only by keeping his people so afraid of everyone else that they don’t see their own leaders as the source of their misery.  He’s not going to nuke South Korea, Japan, or the US.  He knows that, if he did, he would die, and they’d bury what was left of him in a thimble.  Past US leaders have understood this.  But Kim is now treading of very dangerous ground.  He’s confronting a madman with nuclear weapons.

President Trump threatened on Tuesday to unleash “fire and fury” against North Korea if it endangered the United States, as tensions with the isolated and impoverished nuclear-armed state escalated into perhaps the most serious foreign policy challenge yet of his administration.

In chilling language that evoked the horror of a nuclear exchange, Mr. Trump sought to deter North Korea from any actions that would put Americans at risk. But it was not clear what specifically would cross his line. Administration officials have said that a pre-emptive military strike, while a last resort, is among the options they have made available to the president.

North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Mr. Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., where he is spending much of the month on a working vacation. “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”… [emphasis added]

From <NY Times>

Rachel Maddow covered this story in two segments.

There it is.  The bottom line is this.  As long as the US is in thrall to a madman with nuclear weapons, pray for the world’s survival.

This morning I ordered my week’s groceries from Store to Door.  Yesterday’s 91° high just missed setting a new all time record for the first time in a week, and today’s 95° forecast is one degree short of a new record.  We’re still under an air quality warning, due to smoke from wildfires.  But we actually have a forecast high of 74° on Sunday.  I can’t wait!  I’m heat exhausted, because it has interfered with my sleep on and off for about two weeks.

From The New Yorker: Vice-President Mike Pence is seriously considering running for President in 1820, various sources confirmed over the weekend.

According to several prominent Republican donors, Pence is already laying the groundwork for such a campaign, outlining what he believes are the most serious challenges facing 1820 America.

In a conference call with donors last week, Pence reportedly said that, as President, his No. 1 priority would be to repeal and replace the Bill of Rights.

He offered a sneak preview of a potential 1820 stump speech, in which he unleashed a brutal attack on the Bill of Rights’ author, James Madison, and called for the development of the telegraph key.

According to Harland Dorrinson, a donor who was on the conference call, “Mike believes he’s the right man to bring America into the nineteenth century, just like he did for Indiana.”

Dang Andy!! Considering his policies, was that year a completely understandable typo? Otherwise, it’s accurate straight news! RESIST!!

From Daily Kos:

Let’s hope that eight years of President Barack Obama was enough to not only recover the United State’s reputation internationally after George W. Bush, but to inoculate us for however long Donald Trump remains in office. Because after those horrifyingly hysterical transcripts of his calls with world leaders were released, damn.

WASHINGTON When Jorge Guajardo, one of Mexico’s most senior and seasoned foreign policy hands, got out of bed Thursday morning, a couple of interesting messages were waiting on his cell phone.

One was a link shared by a U.S. diplomat to the leaked transcript of a phone conversation between U.S. President Donald Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. In the second, a former Mexican official offered the quick analysis.

"He’s the opposite of Teddy Roosevelt," that official quipped to Guajardo about Trump. "He speaks loudly and carries a small stick."

Seven months into the Trump administration, the world’s diplomatic community has gone from throwing its hands in the air to now leaning back in their chairs and laughing, albeit morosely, at Trump’s cringe-worthy display of diplomacy during the infancy of his presidency. […]

"Everyone I’ve spoken to around the world is laughing," Guajardo said.

There’s nothing new here. Russian hookers have laughed at Trump’s small stick for years. RESIST!!

It’s a few degrees cooler than yesterday, yet the building is so super heated that I can’t tell the difference.  I took a thermometer to the rest room this morning.  At 6:00 AM, in Nameless’ favorite position, it was 101° there.  Tomorrow’s forecast high is the coolest of the nest ten days: 93°.  AAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!

From The New Yorker: The special counsel, Robert Mueller, just called Donald Trump to tell the President that he was “the most innocent person ever,” Trump told reporters on Thursday.

“It was the middle of the afternoon, and he just picked up the phone to say how innocent I was,” Trump said. “He said I was the most innocent person he’d ever come across, and maybe in history.”

“He said he had been over all of the evidence and that he and his staff would spend hours just looking at each other in amazement at about how unbelievably innocent I was,” he said.

Andy, the really sad thing is that it’s something Trump would actually say. RESIST!!

From NY Times: A little more than a year after the Russian effort to interfere in the American presidential election came to light, the diplomatic fallout — an unraveling of the relationship between Moscow and Washington on a scale not seen in decades — is taking its toll.

President Vladimir V. Putin bet that Donald J. Trump, who had spoken fondly of Russia and its authoritarian leader for years, would treat his nation as Mr. Putin has longed to have it treated by the West. That is, as the superpower it once was, or at least a major force to be reckoned with, from Syria to Europe, and boasting a military revived after two decades of neglect.

That bet has now backfired, spectacularly. If the sanctions overwhelmingly passed by Congress last week sent any message to Moscow, it was that Mr. Trump’s hands are now tied in dealing with Moscow, probably for years to come.

House and Senate Republicans got their quid, when the Fuhrer took the White House. They don’t care if Putin [R-RU] gets his quo. Trump [R-RU] signed the bill, only because he knew Congress would override a veto. Passing sanctions helps Republican legislators hide their seditious participation in covering-up Trump’s Treason. RESIST!!

From Washington Post: Even if they weren’t able to snuff out Obamacare, Republicans appear determined to ensure its marketplaces accelerate their meltdown.

Over the weekend, President Trump castigated the Senate for failing to pass multiple versions of legislation repealing parts of the Affordable Care Act, despite a marathon health-care debate that spanned four days last week. The president has few options left at this point, but he does have power over one crucial part of the ACA marketplaces: payments covering cost-sharing discounts (or CSRs) that insurers must offer to the lowest-income customers. These payments are estimated to total $7 billion this year — making up about 15 percent of all federal subsidies on which marketplace plans are counting.

At this moment, it’s up to the administration whether to make the monthly CSR payments to insurers. So far, it has delivered them around the 20th of each month. But the president tweeted on Saturday that he’s considering withholding the next batch (presumably in August), if Republicans don’t find a way to mov past their seemingly insurmountable gridlock on health care:

Click Through. I would hope the insurers could sue the Reich. Howl, Protesters! Howl! RESIST!!
