Saturday Open Thread

Happy Saturday, Everyone! Enjoy your weekend with family & Friends.

As with any movie, I’d prefer having the experience of attending and watching vs. reveiws.

I’m looking forward to seeing A Wrinkle in Time.”

      It should have been 60 million for what these people did. And more of them should have gone to prison. And the rich old guy playing cops and robbers should have gotten 25 to life, at least. This is a slap on the wrist compared to the crimes that were committed including murder.

    Putin says Jews with Russian citizenship could be behind U.S. election meddling

    Source: USA Today

    MOSCOW — Vladimir Putin says he doesn’t care about alleged Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election because the actions weren’t connected to his government.

    In an interview with NBC, the Russian president was asked if he condoned the interference by 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies detailed in a US indictment.

    “I do not care at all, because they do not represent the government,” he said, according to the interview transcript posted Saturday by the Kremlin.

    “Maybe they are not even Russians but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked; maybe they have dual citizenship of a green card; maybe the US paid them for this. How can you know that? I do not know either,” he said.

    ABC Pulls Politically And Socially-Themed ‘Black-Ish’ Episode Due To “Creative Differences” With Creator Kenya Barris

    According to Variety, who broke this news, the episode “features Anthony Anderson’s patriarch Dre caring for his infant son on the night of an intense thunderstorm that keeps the whole household awake. Dre attempts to read the baby a bedtime story, but abandons that plan when the baby continues to cry. He instead improvises a bedtime story that, over the course of the episode, conveys many of Dre’s concerns about the current state of the country. The episode covers multiple political and social issues. In one scene, Dre and oldest son Junior (Marcus Scribner) argue over the rights of athletes to kneel during the performance of the national anthem at football games.”

    Trade War Prospect Shakes Part of Trump Base: Midwest Farmers

    That’s a tangible threat throughout the Midwest, which accounts for roughly half the nation’s agricultural output, a prime target in any tit-for-tat response to the tariffs announced by President Trump. Unlike the rest of the economy, farms deliver a trade surplus for the United States, and a trade war could put barriers around lucrative markets.

    Mr. Gould, 76, is a longtime Republican, and like large numbers of farmers, he voted for Mr. Trump. But several of the president’s policy positions, like curtailing crop insurance, have run counter to agricultural interests — and perhaps none more than trade.

    Trump wants new authority over polling places. Top election officials say no
    By Annie Linskey GLOBE STAFF
    MARCH 09, 2018

    WASHINGTON — President Trump would be able to dispatch Secret Service agents to polling places nationwide during a federal election, a vast expansion of executive authority, if a provision in a Homeland Security reauthorization bill remains intact.

    The rider has prompted outrage from more than a dozen top elections officials around the country, including Massachusetts Secretary of State William F. Galvin, a Democrat, who says he’s worried that it could be used to intimidate voters and said there is “no basis” for providing Trump with this new authority.

    “This is worthy of a Third World country,” said Galvin in an interview. “I’m not going to tolerate people showing up to our polling places. I would not want to have federal agents showing up in largely Hispanic areas.”

    “The potential for mischief here is enormous,” Galvin added.

    The White House didn’t respond to a question about the measure.

    “There is no discernible need for federal secret service agents to intrude, at the direction of the president, who may also be a candidate in that election, into thousands of citadels where democracy is enshrined,” according to a letter opposing the provision that was signed by 19 bipartisan secretaries of state and elections commissioners.
