Janet shared the link below. Turning Predator's UN speech into a movie:

Twitter Escaped Reality For A Bit By Imagining #TrumpsUNSpeechTheMovie

Forget depending on "the adults in the room." They're ALL complicit. Kelly stayed there (sitting this time) as his man child made another insane speech. Tillerson and Nikki Haley sat there supporting him and have gone out on the various media outlets to defend and support his insane remarks. Someone drove him to the UN instead of taking him directly to an insane asylum. Someone loaded those idiotic remarks onto the TelePrompter instead of refusing to do so.

Time for the "adults" around man child to say "I would prefer not to."

Rips T-rump's Climate Record

Leonardo DiCaprio

Actor and activist Leonardo DiCaprio said Tuesday that the recent string of devastating hurricanes - Harvey, Irma and now Maria - shines a light on the climate crisis and should come as a wake-up call for President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Corrupt) and the world.

"Year after year, for decades," scientists have been warning about the realities of climate change, DiCaprio said during a keynote address at the Yale Climate Conference. "Quite simply, we are knowingly doing this to ourselves, to our entire planet, and we're risking our very future. And the cost of our inaction these past couple weeks has become even clearer."

DiCaprio blasted the Trump administration and others leaders who he said remain willfully ignorant and have refused to act despite "clear evidence from the scientific community" and a "mounting economic price tag" stemming from extreme weather events. DiCaprio noted that he met with Trump in December and presented a plan for tackling climate change and harnessing the economic potential of clean-energy jobs.

"We talked about how the United States has the potential to lead the world in clean energy manufacturing, and research and development. In fact, with the commitment of the Paris climate agreement, it could be the largest domestic opportunity in all of American history. All we need is the political will to see it happen."

Since that meeting, DiCaprio said, "the world has watched" as Trump has nominated former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt - a longtime climate-change denier - to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, rolled back environmental regulations aimed at reining in carbon emissions and announced plans to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement.

Struggles To Change Culture


The 21st Century Fox Group, which oversees Fox News, has emphasized its hiring of a new human resources manager at the group level and another within the network.

And since September 2016, nearly 7,000 employees -- including all of those at Fox News -- have been trained on corporate behavior, while the CEO of 21st Century Fox has insisted on the need to report any inappropriate conduct.

But those moves do not change two decades of history, says Reece Peck, a scholar of media for the City University of New York, who is preparing a book on Fox News.

"One has to be careful to draw direct one-to-one relations between a brand, their style, and the actual workplace environment," he said, but "there is a logical link that's there."

"Just talking about gender and sexism, Fox was notorious for the leg cam. The anchors were encouraged to wear short skirts," he said.

Wealth Fund Hits $1 Trillion


Norway's sovereign wealth fund, the world's largest of its kind, has hit a milestone value of $1 trillion, beating all expectations since its creation over 20 years ago.

The fund, which reached its record value early Tuesday, has been boosted lately by a rise in stock markets and a weaker U.S. dollar, which increases the dollar value of its holdings in other currencies.

Norway first deposited oil and gas profits into the fund in May 1996 and CEO Yngve Slyngstad said nobody at the time had expected it to hit the trillion dollar mark, calling the growth "stunning."

The fund invests proceeds from the country's oil and gas industry to secure pensions for future generations in Norway, a country of merely 5.3 million people.

While there are bigger investment funds around the world, Norway's is the biggest sovereign wealth fund, specifically meant to invest the wealth of a country's citizens.

First Wave From Pacific Camps


A first wave of refugees will leave remote Pacific detention camps and be resettled in the United States in coming weeks, Australian authorities said Wednesday, under a deal that has rankled President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Buffoon).

Canberra sends asylum-seekers who try to enter the country by boat to processing facilities on Nauru and Papua New Guinea's Manus Island, with those found to be refugees barred from resettling in Australia.

They are instead relocated to third countries, or resettled elsewhere in PNG.

The Australian government struck a pact with Washington under former president Barack Obama to resettle some of them in the United States in return for taking an unspecified number of asylum-seekers from Central America.

Doubts over the arrangement surfaced after Trump took office and attacked it as a "dumb deal" in a heated phone call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, before begrudgingly agreeing to honour it.



Digby's Hullabaloo


Addresses UN


Melania Trump called on world leaders Wednesday to come together for the good of their children, delivering her first public remarks at the United Nations as the White House works to strengthen its relationships abroad.

Warning that children are closely watching the example of adults, she told the spouses of world leaders that they "must teach each other the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership."

"We must come together for the good of our children," Trump said at a luncheon at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. She added: "We must remember that they are watching and listening, so we must never miss an opportunity to teach life's many ethical lessons along the way."

Mrs. Trump (R-Hypocrite) said it was time to "turn our focus right now to the message and content they are exposed to on a daily basis - social media, the bullying" and more.

She spoke just days after President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Misogynist) retweeted a mock video that appeared to show him whacking a golf ball that knocks down Hillary Clinton.

To African Leaders


Africa is a continent of "tremendous, tremendous potential," U.S. President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Crooked) told African leaders at a luncheon on Wednesday.

"Africa has tremendous business potential," Trump continued, while hosting the leaders of Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda during the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

"I have so many friends going to your countries trying to get rich. I congratulate you," he said. "They're spending a lot of money."

He went on to praise health care advancements in the non-existent country of Nambia. It is unclear if he was referring to Gambia in West Africa, Namibia in southwest Africa, or perhaps Zambia in southern Africa.



Helicopter Fires On Spectators At Drills


A Russian military helicopter gunship "accidentally" fired on spectators during war games in western Russia, injuring several people, news reports said Tuesday.

The Russian military acknowledged that a helicopter accidentally fired a rocket during drills, but did not say when and where it happened. It insisted that no one was hurt in the incident.

The video released on the online, RBC and news portals showed a pair of Ka-52 helicopter gunships sweeping low at the Luzhsky range, about 100 kilometers (60 miles) east of the border with Estonia, during the Zapad (West) 2017 maneuvers. The video showed one of the helicopters firing a rocket that explodes next to a spectator on a parking lot. said Tuesday two people were seriously wounded and two vehicles were destroyed in the incident. It said the accident happened Sunday or Monday, and that the video was provided by an unidentified witness. said the rocket exploded near a crowd of journalists, military experts and foreign military attaches.

Racist Terms In Campaign Speech


Roy Moore (R-Atavistic), the frontrunner in Alabama's GOP Senate runoff, allegedly used racially insensitive language to refer to Native Americans and Asians during a campaign speech Sunday, reports said.

In the speech recorded on camera, the former chief justice of the state's highest court referred to "reds and yellows" - racial slurs that likely referred to Native Americans and Asian Americans - and said: "We were torn apart in the Civil War - brother against brother, north against south, party against party. What changed."

In 1992, he became a judge of the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit of Alabama and served this position until his election as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2000.

Moore was removed from office in 2003 after he insisted on displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom.

In 2016, he was again removed from office because he refused to enforce the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage rights.



Spills Into NATO Skies

Russia's War Game

Two Russian military jets entered NATO ally Lithuania's airspace over the weekend, a violation which prompted the Lithuanian government to demand an "immediate explanation" from the Russian ambassador. Moscow has accused its neighbor of playing politics over the event.

Russia is currently engaged in joint war games with another Lithuanian neighbor, Belarus, and according to the NATO ally's armed forces over the course of the last week, allied jets scrambled to intercept Russian military jets over the Baltic eight times. These did not result in airspace violations, unlike the foray on Sunday.

"The incident took place in the evening on 16 September, when two Russian military aircraft Il-76 entered Lithuania's airspace and stayed there for up to 2 minutes," the Lithuania's Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced in a statement Monday. "The aircraft were flying from Russia's mainland to the Kaliningrad region."

According to the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense, the violation took place around 11:00 p.m. and the two aircraft had made it several nautical miles deep into the airspace of Lithuania, on their way to Kaliningrad. NATO did not scramble jets because the Russian warplanes had noted their destination in a flight plan. Kaliningrad has no land corridor with the rest of Russia and Moscow has argued its daily air traffic to the region are a necessity. However the increased air force presence during a time of tense relations and high Russian military reinforcement has repeatedly unnerved Baltic allies who have argued it makes it all the easier for Russia to mask any potential assault.

Russia's Ministry of Defense issued a statement, accusing Lithuania of making statements that are "politicized and incompatible with reality," the Interfax news agency reports. Moscow confirmed the airspace violation but said the flight route had to be changed at the last minute due to a weather emergency.
