  1. Alicia Witt grew up to be a little cutie, though.
  2. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/06/james-mattis-denounces-trump-protests-militarization/612640/ James Mattis finally speaks up. “Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us,” Mattis writes. “We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership.” “When I joined the military, some 50 years ago,” he writes, “I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens—much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside.”
  3. Of course. Facts became quaint with “Saddam Hussein has WMD’s and was behind 9/11.”
  4. You can’t prove those lefty koala-humpers weren’t throwing rocks before the video started.
  5. Front page headline in the print bersion of the Startlegram this morning: “Fort Worth Police, protesters kneel, join in prayer for peace”
  6. Yeah. Evangelicals needed something, ANYTHING to justify their support of President Pussy Grabber. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jan/11/donald-trump-evangelical-christians-cyrus-king
  7. Forget me. A lot of evangelicals are going to have to decide between Pat Robertson and their orange King Cyrus.
  8. Good article from Voice of America. Lists white supremacists, antifa, boogoloo boys, and anarchists as possible sources of violence at protests. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/george-w-bush-calls-out-racial-injustices-and-celebrates-protesters-who-march-for-a-better-future/2020/06/02/2d2f7252-a511-11ea-bb20-ebf0921f3bbd_story.html One notable quote: “FBI Director Christopher Wray has said that most of the FBI's domestic terrorism investigations involve white supremacist groups. ”
  9. What???? 9-year old Alicia Witt’s voice-dubbed performance as Alia Atreides didn’t captivate you? “He IS the Kwisatz Haderach!” Fade to black, The End. Not David Lynch’s finest effort.
  10. https://www.star-telegram.com/news/local/fort-worth/article243174201.html At 8:30 — 30 minutes past curfew — police cars began pulling up. Many protesters ran but then came back. Police announced protesters were violating the curfew. Some protesters linked arms and refused to move. Then protesters knelt and shouted at officers to “just take a knee.” Some officers responded by kneeling, and then protesters and officers embraced. But moments later, more officers in riot gear arrived and lined up to face the protesters. Officers and protesters have been talking throughout the night, and the situation remained peaceful. About 9:30 p.m., Police Chief Ed Kraus and officers in riot gear knelt along with protesters to pray. Shortly afterward, SWAT officers began leaving when asked to do so by Kraus. “When SWAT leaves, we leave,” one person shouted to the crowd. Protesters then began leaving too. “You just showed the nation how it’s done,” (Police Chief) Kraus shouted. Everyone cleared the area and the protest ended peacefully with no arrests. Fort Worth, baby!
