Cross-Posted at Really?  Seriously?

Good morning from my office stashed between the two stadiums in Seattle.  It is a Tuesday, cloudy, and 47° F.  It will rain today, sure as I’m sitting here.  It’s what we do here:  RAIN.

I’ve got to get this done and out the door as soon as possible.  I’ve got a lot of stuff to do today, and I want to be out of here by Noon.  I’ve got some vegging scheduled for this afternoon/evening, and the sooner I start on that …

So, without further adieu…

Headlines That Caught My Eye This Morning

Item 1:  Trump posts social media video seemingly suggesting his victory will bring ‘unified Reich’

In a statement to the Associated Press, the Trump campaign claimed it is not a campaign video but rather a video reposted by a staffer who did not see the word.

“This was not a campaign video, it was created by a random account online and reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word, while the President was in court,” Karoline Leavitt, the campaign press secretary, said in a statement.

The video was posted at 1:58 p.m. ET when the trial in Trump’s hush money trial was at lunch. The video was still up late Monday night. [Emphasis Mine]

I’d be willing to bet just about anything that the “staffer” who posted this video was none other than Donald Trump himself.  Court was in recess, and Trump has posted shit like this before without bothering to vet in in any way.

The Video:

Item 2:  Johnson threatens ICC sanctions vote over Netanyahu arrest warrant application

Good luck in getting many of the other nations to follow those sanctions.  Frankly, sanctions have pretty much become pretty toothless.  There are so many ways around them.  Ask Putin…

Item 3:  Italy says ‘unacceptable’ and ‘absurd’ of ICC to put Israel, Hamas on same level

Well, both are accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity.  The key word here, being “accused”, which is a far cry from being proven guilty.

Item 4:  New Windows AI feature records everything you’ve done on your PC

Great. Just what we needed.

Item 5:  Donald Trump Movie ‘The Apprentice’ Ignites Controversy in Cannes Over Rape Scene

Yawn.

I think that the LAST thing on earth that I would ever consider watching — is a movie with, or about Donald J. Trump.  Or Joe Biden.  Or any other modern-day politician for that matter.  I would sooner volunteer to have my intestines pulled out through my mouth than to have to watch something like this.

Item 6:  The internet is disappearing, study says

Because websites are disappearing after a few years?

This site wasn’t here a year ago, and it might not be here a year from now — because I will have either died, lost interest, or a myriad of other reasons why it would no longer be here.  There will always be some idiocy take its place.

Item 7:  Trump’s Truth Social Media Company Lost Nearly $330 Million Last Quarter, On Track to Lose More Than $1 Billion By End of Year

Everything that Donald Trump has ever been involved with — has failed.  EVERYTHING.
