      I’ve seen quite a few official G20 photos with American presidents, but I’ve never seen one in which a U.S. president is pushed toward the end of the front row when the photographer snaps the picture. Dude was further from the center of the pic than Putin, but he’s winning! He’s a winnah!

      This young man who was murdered had just graduated from the University of Arizona here in Tucson. Just 22 years old.

    The Fake President

    There’s a narcissistic fraud in the White House. An angry, hollow, vindictive man is running the country. What bottomless emotional need does he have for acclaim? It is hard to know where his rampant narcissism ends and serious mental problems ensue. He lies prodigiously and for no reason except he obviously has an unclear vision of what the truth is.
    Is his narcissism the driving force behind his lies? Look no further than the lobbies at seven of his golf courses, where he has hung fake Time Magazine covers with made-up headlines of effusive praise for himself. What a bizarre intersection between vanity and fraud. That is a president whose cabinet officials obsequiously offer tribute to his greatness while cameras roll. What is next, Dear Leader… a new haircut?

    The Russian Mob Visits Trump’s Inner Circle

    Last year, I started playing soccer for the first time in about thirty years in a local adult league. I had a lot of success at it, scored a lot of goals despite my decrepitude, and made it through the season in much better shape than I started it. I was hoping to play again this spring, but my boy reached the age where he could play organized baseball, was playing soccer himself, and there’s a limit to how much sports I can fit into my schedule.
    I’m going to play this morning, however, and I hope a few more weeks in July before I take a much needed vacation in August. I need to stretch out for this because a 47 year old body requires this, so I don’t have time right now to do what I’d like, which is try to tell you just how messed up it is that Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump Jr. were meeting with Russian mob lawyers who are also pawns of the Kremlin back in June of 2016.

    The story is very, very complicated and I spent several hours last night reading up on it. One lawyer involved in the case died in a Russian prison at the hands of the Interior Ministry. Another was recently pushed out of 4th story window. The key figure in the whole thing, Denis Katsyv, was represented by Natalia Veselnitskaya who was in the meeting with Trump’s inner circle. Another key figure, Andrey Pavlov, is described as “the consigliere for the Klyuev Group.” Members of the Klyuev Group are described as Russian mobsters linked to the Russian government.
