73 years ago today June 6th 1944




I have posted this before but in the light of the Russia hacking our election NSA .....

..... it needs to be seen again.

USA Today Russians suspected of hacking Wisconsin Dems

GREEN BAY — County websites of the Democratic Party in the area have been under attack, at least one apparently by Russian hackers, an officer of the party said.

What appears to have been Russian hackers compromised the website of the 8th Congressional District Democratic Party as well as the sites of seven county Democratic party organizations, said Mary Ginnebaugh, who chairs the congressional district as well as the Brown County Democratic parties.

Russian hackers have been accused on the national level with interfering with the U.S. presidential election by getting into the Democratic National Committee’s website as well as that of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Washington.

While no one can prove beyond doubt that Russians also were involved in the local hack job, two hackers left “calling cards” with Russian email addresses on the local websites in an apparent gesture of contempt or braggadocio, Ginnebaugh said. Green Bay police were notified and have forwarded information to the FBI, she said.

A Trump voter is .....

.... somebody who can watch reruns of "Walker Texas Ranger," and be
surprised when Chuck Norris kicks the bad guy in the head.




Trump equals Reagan w/his withdrawal from the Paris deal

As President Jimmy Carter put up solar panels* @ the White House and Ronald Reagan
had the solar panels taken down in 1981 to show to his base that "we don't need that
hippy stuff." Can you imagine where we would be at now if we had stayed the course
and pushed clean green renewable energy for the past 36 years?

And now Trump has pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement to show his base that
science and doing the right thing just don't matter.


* If I remember right they were solar water heaters

Trump’s defense chief cites climate change as national security challenge

By Andrew Revkin, ProPublicaMar. 14, 2017 , 1:00 PM
Reprinted from ProPublica

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has asserted that climate change is real, and a threat to American interests abroad and the Pentagon’s assets everywhere, a position that appears at odds with the views of the president who appointed him and many in the administration in which he serves.

“Climate change is impacting stability in areas of the world where our troops are operating today,” Mattis said in written answers to questions posed after the public hearing by Democratic members of the committee. “It is appropriate for the Combatant Commands to incorporate drivers of instability that impact the security environment in their areas into their planning.”


snip

"Climate change is a challenge that requires a broader, whole-of government response. If confirmed, I will ensure that the Department of Defense plays its appropriate role within such a response by addressing national security aspects."
James Mattis

Trump 'complained to Belgian PM of difficulty setting up golf resorts in EU'

Source: The Guardian

Donald Trump offered an insight into his approach to political life during his 30 hours in Belgium while munching “lots of” Belgian chocolates, it has been reported.

Le Soir, a Belgian daily newspaper, reported that the US president acclaimed the chocolates, which were a gift from the Belgian government, during a meeting with the country’s prime minister, Charles Michel.

snip

A second source told the newspaper: “Every time we talk about a country, he remembered the things he had done. Scotland? He said he had opened a club. Ireland? He said it took him two and a half years to get a licence and that did not give him a very good image of the European Union. One feels that he wants a system where everything can be realised very quickly and without formalities.”

snip

The paper reports: “Donald Trump had no idea of the economic weight of Belgium and even less of what the country represents for trade with the United States. Then he was introduced to the thing in a very visual way. But the president only gave vague attention to it.”

Oh for the love of dog please make it stop. Chocolates, golf, shoving people, insulting the
Germans, and treating NATO countries like they owe back rent.
