Gregg Allman, Soulful Trailblazer of Southern Rock, Dies at 69



Ivanka/Jared trying to use the White House counsel, for this reason, is something else.


A devastating Facebook post by a heartbroken mother.

His mother, Asha Deliverance, spoke of her son Saturday morning her on Facebook page.

She wrote:

"Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche, My dear baby boy passed on yesterday while protecting two young Muslim girls from a racist man on the train in Portland. He was a hero and will remain a hero on the other side of the veil. Shining bright star I love you forever."

Meche graduated from Reed in 2016 with an economics degree. He worked for the Cadmus Group, according to his Facebook page. The Massachusetts-based company's website says, "We deliver services and solutions that transform markets and behaviors, create social and economic value, and improve people's lives."

Portland authorities have not confirmed the identities of the two stabbing victims who died or a third victim who was hospitalized.

Reed College communications director, Kevin Myers, said he used to play basketball with Meche a couple times a week when Meche was a student at the college.

"He really was just, just a selfless, selfless person," Myers said. "And clearly to act like this is evidence of that."

Oh My Word: Out of step: G7 leaders take a stroll-While Trump Follows in a golf cart

The distance between Donald Trump and his G7 partners was spelled out dramatically today when Theresa May and the leaders of Italy, France, Germany, Japan and Canada strolled the streets of Taormina, Sicily — while he followed in a golf cart.

The six are planning to put pressure on Mr Trump over his opposition to free trade and efforts to combat climate change. They walked the 700 yards from the traditional G7 group photo, taken at a Greek amphitheatre, to a piazza in the hilltop town, but Mr Trump stayed behind until he could take a seat in the electric vehicle.

He had been the last to arrive for the photo, keeping the others waiting at the amphitheatre, which commands sweeping views over the Mediterranean.…



Trump-Bannon trickle-down. Suspect in Portland Hate Crime Murders is a Known White Supremacist


Witnesses told the police that he was harassing two women who appear to be Muslim. One was described as wearing a hijab. One of the men he stabbed died at the scene, one was pronounced dead at a hospital, and one is expected to survive.

Christian is a known right wing extremist and white supremacist. On April 29, Christian showed up to the right-wing "March for Free Speech" on 82nd Avenue in Montavilla with a baseball bat in an attempt to assault left-wing protesters. The bat was quickly confiscated by Portland police officers. He ranted how he was a nihilist. He'd soon yelled racial slurs ("fuck all you n*****s") and gave the Nazi salute throughout the day. He yelled "Hail Vinland" throughout the day.

A few Portland police officers on April 29 appeared to be familiar with Christian, but not threatened by him. They claimed he had a head injury and was mentally ill.


Update: Christian has a criminal record that includes a host of felonies going back to 2002, when he was convicted of first-degree robbery and second-degree kidnapping. He also has a conviction for carrying/using a dangerous weapon from 2002.

His Facebook page is replete with anti-Semitic comments and other evidence of his views. Here are some examples.


Trump has location tagging on. That is a huge security risk. Means his phone's GPS is on.


Merkel re: climate change discussion: very unsatisfactory & we have a situation of 6 against 1"

Merkel said the discussion on climate change had been “very unsatisfactory”, adding “we have a situation of six against one”.

Why is there no deal on climate change?

The final communique issued at the G7 summit in Italy said the US "is in the process of reviewing its policies on climate change and on the Paris Agreement and thus is not in a position to join the consensus on these topics".

However, the other G7 leaders pledged to "reaffirm their strong commitment to swiftly implement the Paris Agreement".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the discussion on climate change had been "very unsatisfactory", adding "we have a situation of six against one".

Mr Trump tweeted: "I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!


The final tweet of Zbigniew Brzezinski, who died yesterday

Sophisticated US leadership is the sine qua non of a stable world order.
However, we lack the former while the latter is getting worse.
