“You never really know what's coming. A small wave, or maybe a big one. All you can do is hope that when it comes, you can surf over it, instead of drown in its monstrosity.”

No clickbait, no bullshit, just me presenting the result of countless hours of painstakingly researching, connecting dots, and critical thinking/deductive reasoning. Here is the summary of my findings.
Methodology : (For those who research)
To hear Barack Obama now making the claim that Bush was committed to the rule of law and human rights is just the latest betrayal of a Democratic Party that has systematically prevented a reckoning for the crimes of the 43rd president, a party that is clearly uninterested in truth or accountability, and is more than willing to rewrite history to advance its political goals.
Preservation, Restoration, and Reclamation
Once the garden starts production, you've got to begin processing and storing your produce. I put together a food preservation resource last year. This year as I was freezing and storing the blueberries (which I do on a flat metal pan in the freezer before bagging) I started thinking we need to preserve more than just food. How about trying to preserve our health and wealth in these times when it is in jeopardy? What about our soils and resources? Or the ecosystem at large? So that train led me to thinking we need to do more than preserve, we need to restore...soils, the environment, our health and wealth. Which led me to the last theme, reclamation. We need to reclaim our rights...our right to health care, quality education, productive employment, decent energy efficient housing, clean water, peaceful coexistence... in other words a world designed across many levels and dimensions to foster people and a stable planet. There are examples. Let's look at some this week.
“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of those rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs." ~ Norman Maclean
I can only speculate, but my guess for what this thinly sourced NYT story is really about: keeping the Russiagate scam alive & undermining prospects of US-Russia diplomacy. And the usual stenographers are receiving it as expected: pic.twitter.com/HUrGGDVBo3
Before I talk about the Democrats, let me just say that if Trump loses (and it appears that he will), the GOP will descend into a civil war that will make the Democrat's civil war look mild in comparison. Trump's hyper-loyal base has gone off the deep end, immersing itself in konspiracy theories while rejecting logic and fact-based reality. It's not a group that will simply accept their hero losing.
A lot of the coverage of this decision was akin to: ‘SCOTUS Hands Trump Administration a Big Win on Immigration’, but they miss a lot; the following makes me think that the author may have been in the room. He also adds plenty of of historical context. No coverage contained what I’ve bolded first in London’s column. As I have permission to do so, I’ll paste in the whole gob-smacking lot of it. Good on Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan (the ‘2’), but you may remember that Obama appointee Kagan had helped gut long-standing Miranda Rights/Warning in 2010
