I have been working away at http://www.thedailyoutsider.com as I finished a Notation On the Iranian Elections–and as I am listening to coverage from the BBC Farsi Service–this is President Trump has gone to the Middle East and as the controversy continues onward–Some in the “Alt-Right” Media have been questioning it–It is bound to be interesting as I finish off these for this week-end edition of “Thought 4 the Week” on what has been quite an interesting week…..
