    There’s my forever wise, whip-smart, gorg historic FLOTUS..

    Still my absolute, absolute favorite person in the entire political, famous people realm…and beyond..

    Completely adore her..

    Here’s hoping she continues to be her magnificent, unspoiled greatness..

    And unless it’s absolutely, absolutely necessary, here’s hoping she passes on fighting anybody else’s battles..

    Nobody fought for her…and nobody staked any of their political capital, reputation, popularity, – and certainly, nobody staked their lives fighting for her…

    And here’s hoping she completely passes on getting forced to chime in on anything by anyone…and more importantly, by folks who completely disrespected, demeaned and trivialized her…and only remember her when they want to exploit her brilliant, compelling voice and awesome presence and popularity for their own agenda ..but otherwise, insist she’s ‘nobody’… ‘not qualified’..and ‘irrelevant’..

    She’s earned the right to enjoy her life to the fullest…and live it well ..and very happily…unencumbered by other people and their agenda..

    May God continue to bless, guide, guard, defend and protect her and her family..

      Y’all, it is really getting to be too much, just too damn much. Now they’re staging stunts at NFL games for their racist supporters.

      Pence should be required to reimburse the taxpayers.

    The Trump-Russia dossier: why its findings grow more significant by the day

    As US officials investigate potential collusion between Trump and Moscow, the series of reports by the former UK intelligence official Christopher Steele are casting an ever darker shadow over the president
    Saturday 7 October 2017 09.41 EDT

    Nine months after its first appearance, the set of intelligence reports known as the Steele dossier, one of the most explosive documents in modern political history, is still hanging over Washington, casting a shadow over the Trump administration that has only grown darker as time has gone by.

    It was reported this week that the document’s author, former British intelligence official, Christopher Steele, has been interviewed by investigators working for the special counsel on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

    The Senate and House intelligence committees are, meanwhile, asking to see Steele to make up their own mind about his findings. The ranking Democrat on the House committee, Adam Schiff, said that the dossier was “a very important and useful guide to help us figure out what we need to look into”.

    The fact that Steele’s reports are being taken seriously after lengthy scrutiny by federal and congressional investigators has far-reaching implications.

      This was staged at Trump’s request.

    • It was a damn stunt planned to rile racial tensions at BLACK NFL PLAYERS. Beyond the pale. He knows darn well protest is about police brutality. Pence and Trump planned this ISH. The mofos were trying to stir up racial tensions. We are dealing with real evil here.

    I still am thinking about Michelle Obama after listening to her interview with Shonda Rhimes. I love Michelle Obama and her caring and her wisdom. She gives so much of herself to help others!!!

    • Liza says:

      Yeah, I miss having a First Lady. But it’s good to know that the Obamas intend to focus on developing young leaders in their post-presidency work.

    Happy Birthday, Ruby Bridges. Thank you for all of your contributions and advocacy.

    From Wikipedia:

    She is now chair of the Ruby Bridges Foundation, which she formed in 1999 to promote “the values of tolerance, respect, and appreciation of all differences”. Describing the mission of the group, she says, “racism is a grown-up disease and we must stop using our children to spread it.”

    Ruby Bridges was born on this day, October 8, 1954.
    From Wikipedia:

    In early 1960, Bridges was one of six black children in New Orleans to pass the test that determined whether they could go to the all-white school, William Frantz Elementary. Two of the six decided to stay at their old school, Bridges went to a school by herself, and three children were transferred to McDonogh No. 19 and became known as the McDonogh Three. Bridges and her mother were escorted to school by four federal marshals during the first year Bridges attended William Frantz Elementary.

    • Liza says:

      Definitely one of the most iconic pictures of the 20th century, little Ruby Bridges going to school with Federal marshals. And she is so adorable, all dressed up, carrying her book satchel.

      A very brave little girl.
