Sunday Open Thread: Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, play-dads, uncles, cousins, step-dads, granddads, and all men loving and mentoring our youth!

Just The Two Of Us

Daddy Lessons

    If we had a real President, that person would be holding a press conference this morning with a statement and telling us that they personally called all of the families to express condolences and offer any assistance…..but we don’t have a real president.

  • Miranda

    We don’t have a real president that would be sending a Father’s Day tweet and holding a press conference later this morning regarding the sailors…nope…we have this trash

      Just when you think the tango tyrant can not be even more classless, he always rises to the occasion. Fathers & other family members of the deceased Navy members are dealing with confirmed findings that their loved ones are gone. What does the outsurcing CIC do (he literally outsourced this duties as CIC)? Tweet about a poll, dripping with insecurity. An elderly insecure tragedy hoisted on America. Impeach this rotten orange ASAP.

      WHAT?!?!?! We’ve HEARD Alex Jones already…his maniacal rantings are aired publicly every damn day, what the hell is the NY Times talking about??? This is just caping for Megyn Kelly and the hyenas at NBC that signed off on this shit. On the backs of dead children, they were trying to hoist up her ratings real fast with these interviews of Putin and now this nut – trying to pretend she can get all the juicy interviews, but common sense folks ain’t having it. Her show is a hot ass failure and all her white peers will not be able to save it.

      • rikyrah

        Should have never been done in the first place

        • jds09

          THAT is what they purposefully and willfully fail to understand. This should never has been done. It not responsibly using the public square. Real people are hurt by this and it reinforces the crazy.

          A foundational element of liberal white supremacy is the belief that they should be able to do what they want when they want to because…..wait for it….their ‘intentions’ are good.

    I just laughed trying to read this mess. I couldn’t even get through it without snickering. These two lost self-hating fools really believe this mess they’re spewing. Two pitiful black boys (they can’t be men) whining for acceptance and begging white folks to please not use the mean words and stop calling them nigras.

    Good morning Fam!

    This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

    I hope everyone is engaging in self-care. The Maze featuring Frankie Beverly concert was a love fest. Yes, Frankie is frail, and yes, his voice is gone. Yet, being the professional that he is, and showing the love for his audience that he doesn’t take for granted, he and Maze put on a great show. And the love and respect for him and the band was returned by the audience.

    This was the second night of 2 shows, and at one point, he was having so much fun, jumping around and stuff, that he said he needed to slow down – that we were trying to kill him!

    I am glad that he is receiving his flowers while he is still here.

    Happy Sunday!

    Angus King suggests Russia probes just ’20 percent’ done

    Source: Politico

    By HANNA TRUDO 06/18/2017 11:57 AM EDT

    Sen. Angus King estimates investigators are only 20 percent into their probes of Russian meddling in last year’s presidential campaign and any possible ties with President Donald Trump and his associates.

    In an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” King appeared certain in his assessment that as new information is uncovered, the investigation could drag on for months. “I can say categorically that the collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over. And as far as that goes, I’d say we’re 20 percent into it,” the independent senator from Maine said.

    The senator, who caucuses with Democrats and sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, suggested the investigation could wrap up by the end of the year, but emphasized the situation was very fluid.

    “This is a very complex matter, involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents, lots of witnesses,” King said. “There’s a lot of information yet to go.

    — –Collision that killed 7 sailors almost sank Navy destroyer

    – –A U.S. Navy destroyer nearly sank after it collided with a merchant vessel off the coast of Japan on Saturday.

    “They had to fight this ship to keep it above the surface. It was traumatic,” Vice Adm. Joseph P. Aucoin said Sunday, according to the Washington Post.

    A majority of the damage to the USS Fitzgerald happened under the
    waterline near the ship’s keel, leading to a “tremendous” amount of
    water rushing into two berthing cabins and a machinery room, Aucoin said.

    The bodies of seven sailors were found in the berthing compartments, the Navy Times reported Saturday.

    Comey friend: Comey experienced ‘grotesque impropriety’ from Trump
    06/18/17 04:11 PM EDT

    Benjamin Wittes, who runs the Lawfare blog and is known to be a friend of former FBI Director James Comey, in a new interview said President Trump’s dinner with Comey amounted to “grotesque impropriety.”

    In an interview with BuzzFeed News, editor-n-chief Ben Smith asked Wittes how he decided to begin sharing his private conversations with Comey.

    Wittes recalled the New York Times article about the dinner where Trump reportedly asked Comey for loyalty.

    “And I shouldn’t have been shocked by it, because of everything that I had already known,” Wittes told BuzzFeed of the Times’ reporting about the dinner.

    “But I hadn’t processed that information through the right narrative lens. I had known that Jim had been asked for loyalty and said he could only give honesty. But without the framing of this dramatic dinner, and the sort of grotesque impropriety of that taking place in that scene, it hadn’t all clicked.”
    Wittes, who penned an op-ed in the Times after Trump fired Comey in May, told BuzzFeed that reading the newspaper’s reporting on the dinner put helped him understand conversations he had with Comey.

    if you were like me and wasn’t really feeling last weeks American Gods, the season finale redeems it and just makes you anticipate and want the next season asap

      I actually ended up enjoying last weeks episode.

      It really shouldn’t have worth, as much as I love Sweeney, but by the end, I actually really did like it.

      Trying to get some stuff done now so I can watch the finale on Starz later tonight
