More proof from within Trump's own administration that he deliberately tells lies.

From the article linked below:

[Elizabeth Spiers] The former New York Observer editor has now claimed that Mr Kushner, the former publisher of the paper, informed her that Mr Trump did not believe the “birther” lies he was peddling.

_“When I was the editor of the New York Observer, Kushner and I were going back and forth about how the paper should cover him,” Elizabeth Spiers wrote in a post on Twitter. _

“I told Jared that I was particularly appalled by his father-in-law’s birtherism stance, which I viewed as cynical and racist.

“He rolled his eyes and said ‘He doesn’t really believe it, Elizabeth. He just knows Republicans are stupid and they’ll buy it’”.

Ms Spiers, who served as the editor of the publication from early 2011 to late 2012, made the alleged revelation in order to prove to a right-wing blogger that Mr Trump was a “notorious liar”.

“Let's be clear he was talking about you, Doug,” she says. “Trump did not con Democrats; he conned – and is still conning – his base. So you have every right to your gullibility and I won’t try to deprive you of it, but personally, I’d rather know what the hell is going on”.

Scientists Find Evidence of Extreme Methane Storms On Titan - Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, is a mysterious place; and the more we learn about it, the more surprises it seems to have in store. Aside from being the only body beyond Earth that has a dense, nitrogen-rich atmosphere, it also has methane lakes on its surface and methane clouds in its atmosphere. This hydrological-cycle, where methane is converted from a liquid to a gas and back again, is very similar to the water cycle here on E...

Trump: A Soulless Coward

"This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner—and to lie about how previous presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers—is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all." (Coach Gregg Popovich)

Hey Pet (Photo) Lovers!! A Gift From Google

Google's use of AI is only going to grow and we will continue to see all sorts of cool toys and things coming from the Googleverse. Here's a great one for all you pet lovers, especially those who take lots of photo's of their pets!

Facial recognition for animals/pets!

"Google today launched a new feature that makes it easier to find pet pictures in Google Photos. The feature automatically seeks out pet faces and groups them in folders, just like it does people. You can label the photos with your pet’s name once they are grouped and there’s no need to type “dog” or “cat,” like before. To see the photos, simply type in Chester’s name into the search box."

It looks like the real motivation for Trump attacking sporting personalities for "taking a knee" during the national anthem has been found.
As ever, it's all about Trump, and has nothing to do with the flag or patriotism at all.

It's all about the loss of revenue Trump is experiencing since a growing number of Teams have stopped using Trump properties for their away-from-home accommodation.

From the article linked below:

Trump’s refusal to untangle himself from his businesses as required of any U.S. president automatically created a red-flag of suspicion. Myriad long-time politicians from both parties, along with journalists, have questioned Trump’s disrespect for the First Amendment — because it is, indeed, odd, that a leader of this country would to such lengths attack private citizens and businesses who disagree with his policies and rhetoric.

No matter the policy differences, U.S. presidents have typically respected the Constitution.

But The Washington Post report shines a glaring light on possible motive for Trump to go out of Stephen Curry for stating his refusal to visit the White House, or NFL players, for choosing to protest peacefully against police killings of African Americans.

Teams from all major sports leagues, and beyond, have been fleeing Trump hotels in droves since 2014, according to Bontemps and Farenthold:

According to the report, the only properties not to take a financial hit are those in Washington, D.C. or his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida.

_Which came first — Donald Trump “poking the wrong bear,” leading to professional sports teams fleeing his properties and hitting him in the pockets? Or the professional sports teams leaving the properties causing him to lash out on Twitter? (And, will this information cause other teams to find other hotels in which to stay — or, conversely, inspire teams to stay or seek out Trump hotels?) _

#nightmarefuel Number 16. An especially good prompt, I thought. Thanks, +Bliss Morgan
_______________________
The doorbell rang. That always seemed to happen at the worst possible time. Dale could sit at his desk for eight hours without receiving a single package or door to door evangelist, but let him sit down on the crapper or step into the shower and the ding-dong would surely come.

Today was no different. Laundry day. He’d been down to one pair of underwear, the ones so old all the color was a suggestion of blue in paper thin material he could probably poke a finger through if he tried. He was wearing them with a tee-shirt he’d accidentally dyed pink and a pair of ancient shower shoes. He looked like someone’s creepy bachelor uncle with a hangover.

His face was still hanging up to dry. He liked to clean it thoroughly at least once a week. He got some ribbing for his fastidiousness from the other demons, but he thought it made a difference in how it felt, kept the skin flexible and poofy in the right ways. Even the brothers who liked to tease him had to admit that he had the most realistic human persona of them all. He’d never once been suspected, not even when he’d been stopped by a group of trackers in the mountains last summer.

But damn it, there was the doorbell again. Dale grabbed a baseball cap and pulled it on to cover his horns. Without the face to wear, he looked a bit like a human burn victim, his skin black and red and stretched too tightly over the bones. Maybe the UPS guy would buy that story.

Dale opened the door, keeping most of his body behind it. His tail swished gently against the floor as it often did when Dale was agitated. A little girl stood on the stoop, golden curls shining in the sunlight. She looked delicious, but Dale never hunted this close to home. It was a good way to attract unwanted attention, eating the children of your own neighborhood. “Can I help you?” he asked.

“I’m selling cookies for school. You want to buy any?”

Dale considered. These kid-sales people could be hard to shake. It might be faster just to buy something. “How much?”

The girl opened a lengthy full color flyer. “Depends on which kind.”

“What’s the cheapest?”

“Oatmeal raisin.” The little girl wrinkled her nose in distaste. Dale didn’t blame her. Not his favorite human concoction either.

“You got chocolate chip?”

“Sure, mister. They’re twelve for a break-apart dozen or twenty-four for a tub. I like to get the tub and just eat the dough myself.”

Dale’s wallet was in the bedroom, on top on the dresser, but he knew there was only $10 in it. “Can you take a check?”

“Uh-huh.” The girl studied the paper. “You make it out to Grandview Elementary School.”

“Okay,” Dale said. “Just wait here.” He left the door standing ajar and went to his desk in the back bedroom he used as an office.

When he came back a few seconds later, holding up the check, he was startled by an arrow through the chest. He grabbed at it, but it was well aimed, a little lower than it would have needed to be to pierce a human heart. He fell to his knees, black blood spilling over his lips.

The little girl lowered her crossbow and smiled. “You really should be more careful, leaving your door open to strangers. You never know what kind of monsters you’ll find.”
