It has been quite a week in our World–and that’s putting it mildly–and at the Daily Outsider we’ve been “Virtually breathless”.      Of course, having a tape of @realDonaldTrump was the “icing” on the cake–I’ll let what Fox is so keen to call it “MainStream Media” run with it–as the rest of the so-called Resistance will continue down its’ efforts–why Donald Trump called for a second summit after the disastrous first summit is something that is just baffling to me–although the Secretary of State seems to support it.

One of the key other areas is Iran which I have been assessing throughout the week–I have tried to be optimistic as I see increased protests throughout the Country and have been noting how #WeWillReClaimIran.    The Secretary of State is due to speak in Simi Valley over the Week-End–I sent out a few Tweets tagging the Secretary of State which I hope is picked up by his staff.     This is as another dilemma continues to emerge about the true realities that seems    One of the most profound dilemmas as a result of the dysfunction in Washington is how China and Europe are coming Together as this from the Economist clearly shows:

Yet this week President Xi Jinping and his team agreed, in effect, that the one thing worse than an American led world is one with no rules at all. It is now finding common ground with the EU

It has been a challenging week to say the least.   For this week, while being “On the Prowl”, I decided to feature this courtesy of Professor Turley–It was so appropriate in light of President Trump’s horrific European Tour, his disastrous press conference with Vladimir Putin and his abysmal attempt to “clean it all up”:  

As many of you know, I am a history nut and I could not ignore the 100th anniversary of the murder of the entire Romanov family on July 17, 1918. It is an ironic anniversary after the disastrous meeting of President Donald Trump in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin. There are perils to trusting […]

As the new week dawns, I picked this up courtesy of Success Magazine which is a nice way to help begin a reasonably “quiet” week” :

It is another day in the reality TV show that is the Trump Presidency.   President Trump has announced his pick–someone who has argued for nearly unchecked Executive Power, has been against Abortion and has also written against the Affordable Care Act.  Corey Robin’s beautiful historical analogy was worth noting which I hereby note while being “out & about” in my “WordPress Corner”…

Profound challenging times indeed….

During the Roosevelt Administration, they were known as the Four Horsemen (of the Apocalypse). They were Justices Butler, McReynolds, Sutherland, and Van Devanter. They voted, again and again, against the New Deal. This is what they looked like. Tonight, with Trump’s choice of Brett Kavanaugh, we have the Five Horsemen. They are Chief Justice Roberts…
