A first-ever stop by First Nation canoes as part of "Awaken The Canoes" today. H/t to Barend van der Vorm for this beautiful image.

So, the mansion adjacent to Mar a Largo rents for $81,000 per month. That sounds like a bargain were one an agent for a hostile nation, wanting to set up a listening post.

It’s too bad we’ve legalized bribery. But since we have, wouldn’t it be nice to know who’s bribing whom?

Why Orwell's "1984" remains, in the words of Anthony Burgess, “an apocalyptical codex of our worst fears."

The tax returns will only tell a partial story. When they are lined up against the actual records of cash flowing through Deutsche Bank to and from foreign entities, is going to have a problem.

Remember 2013, when Very Serious researchers and pundits warned us that AI & robotics would cut employment by a factor of 2 within 15 to 20 years? US unemployment has gone from 8% to 3.6% in the 6 years since.

I want to make sure I understand this. It’s essential that men have the right to choose to own assault rifles that blow holes in other people’s bodies, but insupportable that women have the right to choose what happens in their own bodies. That’s what’s happening?

It was not just DeutcheBank. Also: Swedbank, Danske Bank, Alpha Bank, and Nordbank. Trillions of dollars flowed out of Russia / former Soviet Republics, to be laundered in real estate in the U.K., and N. America, as well as other places. Many in Trump properties.

Anti-money laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank recommended in 2016 & 2017 that multiple transactions involving legal entities controlled by Trump and Kushner be reported to a federal financial-crimes watchdog. But bank executives rejected their advice

The activity in question involved Trump and Kushner overseas transactions, according to five current and former bank employees. Kushner Companies was moving money to Russian individuals. The Trump Foundation was also flagged for suspicious activity.

Here’s Brexit Party’s spokesman conspicuously failing to deny George Cottrell’s involvement. No ‘official position’. Also ‘not paid’. Note: Cottrell told Telegraph that his previous fundraising gig for UKIP was an unpaid role..

. found Cottrell had been claiming to people he is acting treasurer of Brexit Party. And had been photographed at Brexit Party events. My story didn’t make it in to paper today. But Sun Times *did* publish with what looks like separate sources

NEW: here’s *actual* evidence that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is accepting foreign donations via PayPal. Dollars, yuan, Swiss francs, roubles..you name it, they’ll take it. Laundered by PayPal into British £. This *cannot* be legal, surely?? Electoral Commission MUST investigate

Still enjoying ⁦⁩'s Alien 3 in comic form; wonder if the upcoming audio version will be similarly good.

I feel bad for the guys who reported Gallagher. They risked their careers to report actions which the president has now endorsed. Pardon will have the intended effect, though. The next time people witness that kind of behavior, they're going to keep quiet.
