Josh Marshall: The Madness of King Trump (TPM)
This last really bad week seems to have gotten us to a new point in which administration leaders are openly saying that the President doesn't speak for himself or his administration. Either in people's understanding of what Presidents are supposed to do or in the humiliations these descriptions likely amount to for Trump himself, this does not seem like a sustainable solution to the Trump problem.

Masha Gessen: Trump's Incompetence Won't Save Our Democracy (NY Times)
… a careful reading of contemporary accounts will show that both Hitler and Stalin struck many of their countrymen as men of limited ability, education and imagination - and, indeed, as being incompetent in government and military leadership. Contrary to popular wisdom, they are not political savants, possessed of one extraordinary talent that brings them to power. It is the blunt instrument of reassuring ignorance that propels their rise in a frighteningly complex world.

Joe S     said:
   Oh! Easy breezy, Rodney Dangerfield. But that's not why I called you all together. I was listening to the radio in my car tonight and Jimmie Dale Gilmore came on singing Saginaw, Michigan. It's a great song but a lot of people never heard Jimmie Dale sing it. A lot of people never heard of Jimmie Dale, for that matter. But Jimmie Dale did a fine job, as he does with every thing he sings. Well actually I wasn't listening to the radio I was playing the CD player, but I couldn't think of the word CD. It's getting that way with me more and more these days. I don't think it's dementia because I can come across someone I went to school with 55 or 60 years ago and I know instantly who they are, I just can't remember their name. It used to embarrass me but now I just say, "Hey I know you, you used to play point guard. (or whatever) What's your name again. I'm Joe." And that's good because I'm pretty sure who ever it is doesn't remember my name either.
  But anyway.... That song always reminds me of my old friend John. I played that song by Bobby Bear on my record player for John and he loved it and decided to include it in his repertoire. About a week later John was practicing with his guitar when I came in and he told me to sit down and listen to his new song. He started playing Saginaw, Michigan only he wasn't saying Saginaw, he was saying Sagamon, Sagamon Michigon. I stopped him right there and told him, "John, it's not Sagamon, it's Saginaw, and it's not Michigon it's Michigan." He thought for a bit and said, "No, that doesn't sound right."
  I forgave him because he was from Minnesota, the land of 10,000 insignificant lakes, not Michigan and we were living in South Dakota. Besides that he was my best friend, my roommate and he played a righteous 12 string guitar that he could keep in tune. So I thought you might be interested because everybody knows Rodney Dangerfield, hardly anybody knows Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and nobody knows John.

Launches TrumpiLeaks Website

Michael Moore

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore, who is working on "Fahrenheit 11/9," a film about the Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) administration, has launched TrumpiLeaks, a website for whistleblowers who want to send information to him.

The site's launch comes after a government contractor was arrested by the FBI, allegedly for sharing classified information with the news outlet the Intercept, the Justice Department announced Monday.

The Intercept published an article Monday based on National Security Agency documents it obtained, allegedly from government contractor Reality Leigh Winner, 25. The documents said the Russian military carried out a cyberattack on a U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before the presidential election last year.

After news Winner had been arrested broke, Moore launched the site, which lists his WhatsApp number, how to communicate with him using the end-to-end encryption apps Signal and Peerio, and other means of communications.

Tied To Fewer Fatal Police Shootings

Stricter Gun Laws

U.S. states with tighter restrictions on the purchase and use of guns and ammunitions may have fewer fatal police shootings than places with more permissive firearm policies, a recent study suggests.

The U.S. has more citizen-owned firearms than any other country in the world, but also some of the most relaxed gun laws, researchers note in the American Journal of Public Health.

For the current study, researchers examined data on citizens fatally shot by police or other law enforcement agencies to see how state laws on things like background checks for gun purchases, restrictions on carrying guns in public places and enhanced child and consumer safety policies might influence the odds of fatal police shootings.

Compared to states with the most permissive gun laws, states with the strictest firearm policies had 51 percent lower rates of fatal police shootings, the analysis found.

The research team analyzed data from The Counted, a website that tracks police shootings using news reports and other sources, and from the Brady Center, an advocacy group for gun laws that tracks state firearm policies.

Baby News

Ella and Alexander Clooney

Never known to do things by halves, George and Amal Clooney, one of the most glamorous power couples in the world, on Tuesday announced they had become parents at last, to twins.

"This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives," said a publicist for the 56-year-old star of "Gravity" and "Ocean's 11."

"Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine," added publicist Stan Rosenfield, joking that "George is sedated and should recover in a few days."

Amal's parents, who are Lebanese, told AFP they were elated by the news and that everything had gone smoothly.

Violinist Barred

United Airlines

A classical musician has accused a United Airlines supervisor of barring her from boarding a plane with her centuries-old violin, sparking a scuffle that caused her to miss her flight and left her worried her hands - and by extension, her livelihood - may have been harmed.

Yennifer Correia's attorney said Tuesday a lawsuit against United is likely on the 33-year-old Memphis woman's behalf after the Sunday confrontation in Houston as she was preparing to fly to Missouri for a symphony rehearsal.

Correia had a discount fare that, according to rules posted on United's website, doesn't let passengers stow luggage in the overhead bin, although an exception is allowed for "small" musical instruments. It was not clear Tuesday why Correia was told to check the violin - made in Italy and believed to date to the late 1700s, her attorney said - instead of being allowed to carry it on board.

Musicians long have complained that airlines frequently require that instruments they rely on for their livelihoods be checked and be entrusted to baggage handlers, with the result that they often are damaged or lost.

Gets His Facts Wrong


Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) environmental chief has been trying to clear the air about why his boss is pulling out of the Paris climate accord, but some of the claims he's making are as solid as smoke. A look at a some of the statements Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt (R-Prevaricator) made over the weekend:

Pruitt, pushing back on whether the president is overstating his ability to bring back long lost coal-mining jobs, credited Trump with creating almost 50,000 jobs "in the coal sector" since the fourth quarter of last year. "In the month of May alone, almost 7,000 jobs," Pruitt told NBC's "Meet the Press."

THE FACTS: He's wildly off base. Instead of adding almost 50,000 jobs in the last few months, coal mining accounted for a total of only 51,000 jobs nationally at the end of May. That's only up about 400 jobs from the prior month, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Asked about Pruitt's claim of 50,000 new coal jobs, his staff on Monday pointed to statistics encompassing seven months of job gains across the far broader "mining" sector. That includes not just coal but also oil and gas extraction, metal ore mining, stone quarrying and other unrelated jobs. Three of the months Pruitt's staff is counting were while Barack Obama was still president.

SCOTUS Faults On Voting Rights - Again

North Carolina

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday faulted North Carolina again in a racially tinged voting rights case, upholding a lower court's ruling that Republican lawmakers mapped state legislative districts in a way that diluted the clout of black voters.

But the justices also threw out another ruling by the same panel of three federal judges ordering special elections by November to fill the state legislature seats at issue in the dispute.

The high court, with no recorded dissents, sent the case back to the lower court to reconsider whether special elections are necessary. The Supreme Court in January put the matter of special elections on hold while it decided whether to hear the state's appeal of the ruling.

The justices upheld an August 2016 ruling by the three-judge panel that the districts were racial "gerrymanders," with boundaries drawn to diminish the voting power of minorities, and violated the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law. The lower court found that the Republican-led state legislature had crammed black voters into a limited number of districts in order to lessen their statewide electoral power.

At issue were nine state Senate districts and 19 state House districts, as carved out in a plan adopted by the legislature in 2011.

Returns to Germany

Egyptian Artifact

A vivid, turquoise-colored carving from ancient Egypt has been returned to a Berlin museum more than 70 years after it was thought to have been lost during World War II.

The Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, which oversees Berlin's state-run museums, announced that the stone slab fragment had been found in the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

The stone is covered with a blue Egyptian faience glaze, and it depicts Ptahmose, the mayor of Memphis under Ramses II, the warrior king and prolific monument builder who ruled during the 13th century B.C. Though the slab is broken, Ptahmose is still visible, raising both hands in a gesture of worship before the gods Osiris and Isis.

Dutch Egyptologist Nico Staring, currently a visiting scholar at Leiden University, matched this object in a historical photo from Berlin's Neues Museum with a new photo from the Kelsey Museum. Staring informed the curators of both institutions of his discovery, and eventually, the Kelsey Museum decided to return the stone object to Berlin, where it will go on display beginning in mid-June.

Hermann Parzinger, president of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, said in the statement that the return was a "noble gesture."

1st Test Track Opens in Europe


European cities could become even more connected thanks to a superfast transportation system known as a "Hyperloop," which now has its first test facility on the continent.

Winners of a Hyperloop technology competition, held by Elon Musk's company SpaceX, unveiled Europe's first test facility for the rail transportation system this week. The nearly 100-foot-long (30 meters) track will be used to test all of the Hyperloop systems in a vacuum at low speeds, according to Hardt Global Mobility, the company set up to commercialize the technology developed by the competition team from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Hardt representatives said this facility is the first step in a four-year plan to build a Hyperloop system connecting two European cities.

A second, high-speed test line will be built by 2019, Reuters reported. And by 2021, a commercial Hyperloop could connect Amsterdam and Paris.

The Hyperloop system is made up of passenger-filled pods that are accelerated through a low-pressure tube to their destination. When Musk first unveiled his vision for the transportation system, he said the pods would travel at around 760 mph (1,220 km/h). This could cut the travel time between Los Angeles and San Francisco to only 30 minutes.
