    The American people need a hero. Who will step forward?

      That, my friend, is the $64,000 question.

      My cat and I were talking about the situation in which 64% of the people are unable to deal with 36% of the people and their fascist leader. It is clear lifelong Republicans, Barr, Rosenstein, even Mueller, understand the fall of T***p before the election means the end of the GOP as a majority party. I'm guessing they don't want to take that burden.

      Had Barr made any other move, T***p would sack the entire department. HIS Justice Dept. was certainly never going to follow up. Better pethaps to be the loyal soldier and try to save the party…

      Let us remember with whom we are dealing. T***p hired him for a reason. Let's give Congress, 3 Attorneys General, the SDNY, the WDVa, and "the Enemy of the People" (the press) a week or so. This was the Yams' best day…they go down from here.

      To your point, we are about to choose our champion…let's take that seriously, and let the in-fighting stay on the other side.

      I'm fond of the Hero sandwiches found at Anthony's Pizza & Pasta.  If you want a mass of heroes, Subway or Quizno's might do.

    In other Russian news today: #MAGA – Siberian aluminum smelter edition. (if you haven't read Red Notice do yourself a favor).

    Russia’s Rusal to invest $200 million in Kentucky aluminum plant

    [R]usal would supply the new mill with as much as 200,000 metric tons of foreign-made aluminum each year, most of it from an aluminum smelter under construction in Siberia.

    After decades of stagnant sales of aluminum sheet for cans and other staple products, rolling companies in the U.S. are pivoting to production of higher-profit sheet for vehicle bodies. Car makers increasingly are replacing steel with aluminum because it is lighter. Now tariffs have pushed up the cost of foreign-made aluminum, giving domestic producers greater pricing power in a market where production capacity is already tight.

    You'd think that with Kentucky being a premier hemp-growing state, and one that exists in persistent poverty, perhaps someone might have looked at a green option, one that gave Kentucky farmers the opportunity to supply the feedstock for a 21st-century material?
