Mueller Report Download


https://www.justice.gov/storage/report.pdf

Pretty easy to see that Manafort was experienced with installing candidates in office for Putin. Trump hired him and then Manafort arranged to make a deal with Putin – If Trump won the election, then Trump would remove sanctions against Russia. If that’s not a conspiracy, then we are all really stupid. Kushner, Don Jr. and Gates were all in on it and Facebook is guilty too. They knew how much money Russia was putting into their ad campaigns to sway the election and they did not care. $$$$$$

Keeping Trump in office is just plain stupid. McConnell and Barr are co-conspirators in keeping the criminal in office. The DOJ memo preventing prosecution of a sitting president is illegal and even more stupid. Can he shoot Democrats who oppose him? Would that permit conviction?

History will remember who did or did not try to impeach him. History will remember who did nothing, while the rich, idiot, white man got away with stealing an election, lying to the public daily and conspiring to protect and reward Putin for stealing our elections.

Trump Will Destroy Us Before We Destroy Him

America’s slow process for removing an unfit, criminal, corrupt and inept president may have been sufficient and sensible back in 1776, but in 2019, the president (intentionally non-capitalized) will have time to destroy our country before we ever get there. Imagine that Speaker Pelosi and many US soldiers, and Afghanistan officials were killed because Trump leaked the details of the envoy set to visit Afghanistan on 1/17/19. What if Michael Cohen ends up in a deadly accident before 2/07/19? Don’t forget what happened to Seth Rich when he found purged voters and Russian election interference in 2016. William Barr may decide that the entire Mueller Report is protected by Executive Privilege and simply shred it. We’ve only been waiting 18 months or so to read it.

Think of all the dangerous dictators who want Trump to stay in office – what will they do to prevent the turtle-process from ever reaching a successful end? Not to mention, the protectionist and conspiring GOP members like Mitch McConnell who must have known that the 2016 election had been rigged, when he disallowed hearings on Merrick Garland. McConnell is permitting Trump to close down more and more government offices as the shutdown rolls on and can prevent anyone from doing anything to change that. What happens when all courts are closed? How can Trump’s tax returns be subpoenaed if no one is at the IRS? Trump would rather see the country in chaos than admit his wrong-doing and resign.

How many lies and emoluments violations are needed? How many foreign allies need to be lost? How many secrets will be shared with foreign enemies and favors given to enhance their power? How many children will kidnapped and caged at the border? How many soldiers’ lives will be put in danger, before Congress acts to remove the most hugely enormous #1 idiot president, the United States has ever seen? McConnell should be impeached first if that is what it takes. If you haven’t yet, read the evidence in these publications:

Racist Facebook Group Label Charlottesville Terrorist James Alex Fields an “American Hero”

As soon as I heard the name of the man driving the car that murdered Heather Heyer  in Charlottesville today, I looked him up on Facebook, and although his page had been removed, the page shown above came up in search results .  I was appalled, so I clicked the “Report” button for “inciting violence”. But then I thought I would try to learn more about this group, so I joined quickly and was approved immediately.  When I got inside I copied all the member names I could get to, because I knew it was about to get taken down. But it looks as though these people joined the group a while back.   Was this attack planned? Or did Mike Sicas have another group and only changed the name of it to promote Fields today? I guess that’s a question for Facebook.

‘Mike Sican’ is the admin of this FB Group and he was also involved in the Marines United FB Group that was exposed for ‘revenge porn’. You can view images of his comments on that content here – https://www.google.com/search?q=mike+sican&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjwwejCytTVAhUDwGMKHWJZC4QQsAQILQ&biw=1000&bih=582#imgdii=e4sponF88O_SuM:&imgrc=zZFbG5UiR0xF5M:

Is our military recruiting this type of person, or creating this type of person?  The alt-right nazi racists think that their behavior has been legitimized thanks to Trump, so they don’t even try to disguise themselves – A couple users on Twitter –  YesYoureRacist and Sean King have made it their mission to identify the alt-right racists marching in Charlottesville with the help of other twitterers.

The guy who founded the Alt- Right is Paul Gottfried. Tell everyone to send him an email in honor of Heather Heyer.  You can contact Alt-Right Leader Paul Gottfried by email to  gottfrpe@etown.ed

Here is the link to find a local rally through Indivisible Guide to support an end to the terror of the alt-right and racism.

So those are the only members I could copy before FB removed the page.  Here is the backstory on James Alex Fields.  He was born April 26, 1997) and is a resident of Maumee, Ohio​. He is a registered Repulican in Lucas County, Ohio​ and is the owner of the Gray Dodge Challenger that killed Heather Heyer and wounded approximately 20 more people.

James Alex Fields MugshotFrom August 18th to December 11th, 2015, Fields was  in the U.S. Army.  He is currently being charged with one count of second degree murder​, three counts of malicious wounding and one count of hit and run attended failure to stop with injury.

Looks like Terrorism should be added to that list if you ask me, and premeditated murder.

Bernie Supporter and Activist, Heather Heyer Killed by Racist Alt-Right in Charlottesville

Charlottesville resident, Bernie supporter and peace activist Heather Heyer was killed by a white supremacist on 8/12/17 while leaving a hate rally promoted by the Alt Right, KKK, David Duke, Vanguard and other racist groups.  Her last facebook post right after Trump stole the election by purging votes, stated “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention”.  Donald Trump has legitimized the hate groups  that organized and attended the rally with his rhetoric of islamaphobia, LGBT discrimination and general racism.

The guy who founded the Alt- Right is Paul Gottfried.  We have asked everyone to send him an email in honor of Heather Heyer. Contact Alt-Right Leader Paul Gottfried by email to  gottfrpe@etown.ed .   Find a local rally here to support an end to the terror of the alt-right and racism. Anonymous has taken over the site called Daily Storm . com, which was used to promote the rally and the alternative right dot com site is also down as of today.

The day before the rally, a decision to move the rally from the cramped location where the General Lee statue is located, to a larger park, was blocked by a  Roanoke, VA judge. The motion to keep the supremacists’ rally at the small park was opposed by John Kluge, Alight Fund, LLC, David Posner, and Hunter Smith, and by the Downtown Business Association of Charlottesville according to court records, but the Court would not give them time to prepare briefs.

The  Charlottesville City Council voted to remove the Robert E. Lee statue last year because it represents a hero to those who wanted to continue slavery during the American Civil War. The rally was supposed to be in opposition to that decision, but was really just a reminder that the KKK is still alive and no matter what they call themselves, their message is hate and white nationalism.

Since I was born and raised in Charlottesville, I have heard a lot of comments by locals on FB, and some blame the City Council and namely, Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy, for bringing the issue of the statue into the public forum as cities nationwide have had to re-think their Confederate flags and statues. Most of those comments get shot down by the people I would call “my more educated FB friends” who remind them how many people rioted and died when de-segregation was finally enforced in southern states where segregation lived well beyond it’s legal lifetime and where racism still lives today. For most, the statues are a reminder of who is in charge in these cities.

Some people think that racism is a thing of the past in southern states and bringing up the statue was a mistake that fueled this fire.  Others think that Trump and Bannon have stoked this fire and are getting exactly what they asked for.

Charlottesville responded on 8/17/17 with a peace vigil of approximately 1,000 people with songs and a recitation of the poem of Maya Angelou “Still I Rise”.

Interview with Soul Divine

Sweet,
Sexy,
Smart,
Success
Spirit intact, they are . . . souls divine 

While out in search of diversion last weekend, Petra and I happened to slide into the Paradise Lounge. We shot a coupla’ games upstairs waiting for the band to start and when they did, walked over to the balcony to check it out. Not very poetically, I said “Damn, these chicks rock!” and suggested she snap a few shots of them. Funky rock beats, happenin’ lyrics and raw talent in all corners kept the crowd moving as they played “Let It Rock,” “Screaming Love,” and “Break This Heart.” We wanted to go up close for more pics, but had to fight off a complaining guy, whom I thought was the band’s manager since he had paperwork strewn all over the speakers in front of the stage during the entire show. We thought he was acting way wack for a manager and I made a note in my brain to ask “Whassup with him?” if I and when I had the chance to interview them. We managed to get him out of the way , Petra got the shots and we enjoyed the rest of the show. Afterwards, I passed my card to the lead singer and briefly told her before they disappeared back stage that I’d like to interview them sometime. I didn’t know if they were local or just visiting, but figured it was worth a shot.

Judea Eden called a few days later to schedule and by then I had checked out some reviews and their website. I wasn’t surprised to find numerous quotes regarding the powerful vocals of lead singer Judea, the slick guitar licks from Carrie Baum, the kick ass drumming of Robin Bordow or the jazzy/funky bass of Joan Martin. I was surprised however, to find that I felt as though I knew more about this band from having seen them perform once than I did from reading all the reviews, articles, and bios. I decided that this interview must come up with more than “Damn, these chicks are hot!” and we made a plan to meet at Planet X Studios the following Sunday afternoon.

Clad in cowboy hat and sunglasses, slim, sultry guitarist Carrie Baum met us at the door of Planet X – she had the reserved, yet confident style of someone who shows their genius to few people and is thus not accustomed to adoration. Running late from our previous photo shoot/interview, we apologized and followed Carrie to the studio where they had been practicing for the past 3 hours. Judea came up with her beautiful smile and her cute chubbiness and introduced herself to us. We then met Joan Martin – bass player with a wide eyed, child-like, twinkling smile that makes you wonder what she’s up to.

Eventually, the drummer Robin Bordow (resembling Long Tall Sally) came over after finishing up what she was doing with the equipment .

I was already curious about Robin, as there was nextunuthin’ written about her, that I could find, and she seemed the mysterious, quiet type. As it turned out, she had plenty to say and it was plenty interesting. Robin has been playing drums with many bands for over 20 years and at age 42, has been with the same lover/partner since age 17. In addition, to keeping up with rehearsals, local and out of town gigs; she works for Hewlett Packard as an engineer of hardware for scientific instrumentation; lives in Petaluma during the work week and has a crib in the City where she spends most weekends. Robin is especially into jazz fusion and found inspiration from such artists as Chic Correa, Tom McLaughlin and Herbie Hancock. She’s played with many bands, but says she’s never been in a band with such great communication and effectiveness to make decisions and actually get things done. Robin came across as the mom in the superstar family – staying back and looking after things while the girls have fun under the spots.

Robin and Judea have been in the Bay Area for a long time, while Carrie and Joan are fairly recent New York transplants. Joan and Carrie were in a band together in New York and both ended up moving to Frisco. Carrie hadn’t been here long when she decided she would go back east as things weren’t really coming together for her here. But then Joan took Carrie to a party, just a week before she was scheduled to leave town and introduced her to Judea. Carrie and Judea fell for each other, so the move back to New York is still on hold.
Carrie Baum played with Venus Humm in New York before coming west 5 years ago, studied with S.F.’s Jim Campilongo, and thinks he’s an excellent guitar player and a great teacher. From what I’ve seen and after having already been labeled “A guitarist with enough skill and creativity to be ranked among the best in San Francisco’s club scene”, she oughtta’ know what good is. Carrie said she’s been inspired by the music of Ann & Nancy Wilson and Led Zeppelin. A quote from their website @ www.slip.net/~sodivine/, “Carrie’s dream is for a group of women to achieve respect with their talent and with what they put forth from their hearts.” – She feels she has finally achieved this with Soul Divine.

Judea Eden was previously in Claudia’s Secret and Into The Fray; First Memory was her first band in the City. She says her soulful voice comes from her country, folk and gospel singing as she was comin’ up in Sacramento. Judea’s other priorities include her relationship with Carrie and her full time job in the Graphics Product Unit of Microsoft. She loves collaborating in the writing of songs with Carrie and after being in the same room with the two of them for a while, I could somehow see their soulful connection. Judea also handles media relations for Soul Divine and the way she stares directly into a lens, looks like she’s got nothing to hide from the media or anyone else. I can’t imagine a better person for the job. It’s as though she looks through to your core and says “Here I am, I dare you to see all that’s really here”.

Carrie told me a bit about two of the tracks on their latest CD – “Screaming Love” is based on a past relationship and “Alive” was about a very difficult time in her life. She thinks its important to talk about and express pain, but rising above it and working through things enables her to turn it all into a positive. Joan and Judea both say they write songs according to the here and now, much more than about the past and since the present seems to be a very good time for all of them, that’s probably why their tunes come across with an optimistic edge.

Joan Martin was playing drums for Hena Hena back in New York City, but in order to write new songs without getting kicked out of her apartment, she picked up a bass guitar so she could put songs together. As it turned out, picking up that bass was a good thing, cuz’ at the time she moved to Frisco, it was a lot harder to find a position as a drummer. Her talent and her bass landed her a spot in a band quickly and eventually placed her in Claudia’s Secret with Judea. Joan handles booking for the band and keeps them busy. Some upcoming shows are listed below.

Soul Divine dig playing at Bottom of the Hill, Paradise and Judea says Blue Lamp has good energy & New George’s in San Rafael is a happenin’ spot.

Together for 2 years now, things are definitely comin’ together for this group. A little more time should put them in the big time in a big way. As it turned out, that guy in front of the stage wasn’t their manager – they manage themselves – for now; he was just a fan who follows them everywhere and sometimes brings his paperwork to the club with him and tells photographers where they should be. SoulDivine has an album of songs ready to record and are in the process of locating the best record deal/financing to proceed. With the smart, steady, star quality and their solo and combined funk/jazz/rock experience rolling out the way it does, we picture them hotter than the soup at the Tenderzone’s Thai Noodle and playing in any hood they like within a year. – SFO Sunshine

Review of The Suicide Machines Concert

Impressions of the Suicide Machines show at Slim’s
photographs and story by J.D. Brumback

plus samples of the new album – “Destruction by Definition”

Jay
It was so hot in Slim’s we thought it was raining. The lead singer noticed how much everyone was sweating and was handing out water even before the first song began. The band gave the crowd the go ahead for slamming and diving before ripping into the first song – “Step 1”. The crowd whipped itself up into a hot musty ball of steam. People began jumping on and flying off stage faster than the bouncers could fathom. They resigned themselves to just keeping people from getting hurt and maintaining the sound equipment which was also flying around.

Jay invited the crowd to sing along and even handed over the microphone to fans for little solos. He definitely knew how to work the crowd and everyone seemed to be loving the show and thriving in the energy that was going back and forth between the audience and the band. There was no slowing down for these guys. They came into Slim’s, threw out the high energy with a no-nonsense show, and left the crowd wanting more. It was more movement than we’ve seen at Slim’s all year. All the “No slamming”, “No diving” rules were broken with non-stop action and the show was over before we knew it.

Review of UK Subs Concert

 

Impressions of the U K Subs Show
at The Great American Music Hall
by Gary X. Indiana.
 

 

Charlie Harper
 
The punkrock revival continues!Oldschool legends, the UK Subs, wound up their 20th anniversary U.S. tour with a triumphant return to San Francisco and a fiery performance at the Great American Music Hall. Started by singer Charlie Harper as a London R&B; combo, the band evolved into one of the original great British punk bands. Charlie solidified the lineup with bassist Alvin Gibbs and guitarist Nicky Garratt, but they parted ways after the epic Polish blitz of 1983, and finally reunited this year for recording and the tour, along with ex-Samiam drummer Dave Ayer.

This summer, Nicky’s San Francisco-based record label, New Red Archives, released the 17th UK Subs album “Quintessentials” in conjunction with Cleopatra Records’ release of the 18th title, “Riot” (all their records are alphabetical, y’see). Both records feature the “classic” (plus Dave) lineup. XXX subsidiary Amsterdamned recently issued the domestic version of the 15th Subs record “Occupied” with Charlie and his “Euro-Subs”, the guys he’s been playing with in Europe (including original drummer Pete Davies). European label Fallout/Jungle is putting out the 16th record, the live Peel Sessions, three classic recordings with Charlie, Nicky, Pete, and another early member, Paul Slack. So there’s a bumper crop of UK Subs material out there folks!

Nick Garratt
 
The Great American gig was a blast, despite the absence of those who chose to attend the Gwar extravaganza at the Warfield instead.Still, a decent crowd showed up, ranging from teenage crusties to wizened geezers like myself. We were disappointed to find that Alvin Gibbs had returned to England to take care of some domestic matters, but merchandise gal Carly was filling in on the last few dates of the tour, and doing a splendid job!

Charlie was in fine form, as good as ever, growling the vocals with his thick London accent. Nicky performed his legendary stage acrobatics, leaping into the air, doing the splits, and at one point hurling his guitar a good twenty feet in the air: I saw it coming down, I blinked, and there he was, strapped in and playing!

We heard plenty of songs from the Q/R releases, and just about all the classics we could hope for, including my dance faves “Stranglehold” and “Tomorrow’s Girls”. Nicky threw some of his label’s bands on the bill: Bay Area punkers Accustomed To Nothing opened the show with a hellacious set for the handful of onlookers, minus the kids who were outside drinking malt liquor on O’Farrell; and Pittsburgh anarchy-punks Anti-Flag won the crowd over with their political diatribes and their own not- too-shabby aerobatic guitar playing mayhem.

All in all a great night to be a punker in Frisco, oi oi.

Check out the new album from U.K. Subs (samples below).

Review of Beth Hart Concert and CD

Beth Hart Band recently played the Fillmore. She gave a powerful, no fluff performance wearing a hip hop stocking cap and a full length backless black dress, looking much different from the record label head shot pictured here. The songs are good on cd, but watching her perform them adds an emotion and intensity that you just can’t get without being there. At only 27, the way she talks with zeal about her life of trials and tribulations, she reminds one of a reformed addict friend that doesn’t quite know how to control herself and act right in public. One might feel a bit sorry for her at first glance, but her out of control energy makes her a true performer of a special caliber. After a few songs, the way she just lets it all hang out becomes admirable and the audience was obviously touched by her vibe as they cheered her and yelled for more.

I overheard a fan telling the doorman “. . .When I saw her on Star Search in ’91, she seemed a little spastic for that crowd, kinda like Joe Cocker, ya’ know….. but I loved her and I’ve kept my eye out for her shows and albums ever since”. And anyone with a love for music that gets deep inside should do the same. This chick has raw emotion that explodes out of some lyrics and drips quietly out of others. Whatever the words, you can tell she’s really felt it and her streetwise demeanor comes through on stage to make the songs feel all the more real. Before begining the acoustic session, she casually answered questions from the audience and spoke openly about drugs, getting lost in them, run ins with bad guys and finding herself again. Her honesty and lack of fear for speaking the truth was refreshing and added to her bold, unhampered quality. The audience could feel her warmth and the excitement running through her as she spoke vibrantly about the happiness she has found in working with this band.

The first artist that came to mind when I played the new and aptly titled Beth Hart cd “Screamin’ For My Supper” was Janis Joplin’s enthusiastic and gut spilling style. Then I learned that she played Janis on stage for the Cleveland Playhouse’s production of Love, Janis. She has received universal acclaim for that performance and is now happy to be playing in clubs like the Fillmore with her “best friends” – the very talented drummer Rocco Bilovski from Cleveland and powerful guitarist Jimmy Khoury from Austin, who back her up in a big way, artistically complimenting her raw style.
