Well, folks all that talk about acting presidential did not last very long. @realDonaldTrump @potus started off early this morning by accusing @potus44 President Omaba as well as attacking Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger and once again providing no proof whatsoever.

He sent the following Tweets, with his usual typos and all: http://politics.doseofnews.com/

@potus44 has not yet responded, but Ben Rhodes (@brhodes), Obama’s former deputy national security adviser did...
No. They couldn't. Only a liar could do that. Rhodes added,

Truth and Honesty

Idea

There is nothing more important than inner beauty, integrity and honesty.

Let everyone be sincere to develop in ourselves that quality, so the people of the world to share.

No matter how plain looking you may think any person is, once we have the opportunity to look into their eyes and if we see truth and honesty written across their face, they will be the most beautiful person you will ever see.

FED RATE HIKE?

Announcement
Images: 

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is expected to deliver a new and improved economic outlook in Chicago today.

The chair is expected to provide the strongest so far message of a possible March rate hike.

Fed policymakers have already said such a step could be necessary if the advances of the labor market were “in line" with their expectations, adding that they may need to get ahead of accelerating inflation by nudging short-term rates higher soon.

Encounters of The Fake Kind

Problem

My first encounter with what is now called "Fake News" occurred many years ago when I was working for the Associated Press in Texas, and we published a story about a bogus Boris Badenov.

For those of you too young to remember, Boris Badenov was the nemesis and foil on the hit cartoon Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, which ran on ABC and NBC from 1959 to 1965 (and remains in syndication today).

Boris Badenov was a spy for the fictional nation of Pottsylvania who took orders from that nation's fearless leader, Mr. Big.

Session Expiration?

News

Did DOJ's top law enforcement officer break the law by lying to Congress under oath? Some fear there may appear to be a shell game being played on Capitol Hill.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with Russian officials a couple of times, and some may say
does Trump continue to act presidential by refusing to fire his top law enforcement officer who lied under oath?

In a statement, AG Sessions says he "never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign." http://cbsn.ws/2lXiqna

NYC Weather Warning

Problem

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for New York City until 6:00P Thursday. The advisory is for sustained winds up to 25 mph and gusts of 45 to 50 mph.

During periods of high winds, residents should use caution when walking or driving high profile vehicles. Winds at these speeds can cause flying debris, turn unsecured objects into projectiles, and cause power outages.

To prepare, charge cell phone batteries, gather supplies and turn refrigerators and freezers to a colder setting. Always stay clear of downed power lines.

Teleprompter Trump

Announcement
Images: 

After forty days in office, a new and brighter Donald Trump has emerged who is now relying on teleprompters which he once scorned.

Some say last night's speech was presidential but lacked specifics. Others warn that 40 days could be followed by forty dark nights.

Trump is the real teleprompter president: http://usat.ly/2mCvcWB

CNN drooled all over Trump’s speech. https://newrepublic.com/minutes/141039/cnn-drooled-trumps-speech

Elementary ACADEMY Dear Watson

Idea

The Academy Awards were probably the least favorite in history not only because of what happened at the end, but their television ratings were dismal. http://www.vulture.com/2017/02/2017-oscars-ratings-pretty-bad-but-no-dis...
