    Addendum... MORE *food for thought*... while we're riding out Hillary's fantasy of becoming *President*...

    (snipped for space)


    Or.... here is an alternative suggestion, that is, if Hillary wants to be in the position of holding that enormous amount of power control----

    Hillary Clinton wants to become President. She is claiming that she is under tremendous pressure to run as a candidate, but is fighting the urge to do so. Is she really just appearing as *humble* or is she chomping at the bit underneath all of the nonsense going on with Trump?

    Here's an IDEA... Instead of Hillary Clinton running for USA President, why not go for the ultimate TOP spot and set up that ONE-world governing system with HER at the very top... President OF EARTH... the ENTIRE earth... yeah, let that go to her head. Why settle for some insignificant country that half of the world claims to already hate, when you can have the ENTIRE world at your fingertips...???

    WOW... see how this pans out...
    If Trump wins the 2020 election, why wait til 2024? Hillary is getting up there in age... And it is believed that the UN already has an agenda waiting to make the next OWG possible... They already have the international rules and laws and a system of gov't that passes these things into active mode. They're just missing their united "world" Leader/President or "Queen"... Besides, she'd be a natural *queen* for "Gaia (mother) Earth".

    Just think of the implications of such an idea...
    I already have an idea of what all of that will entail and involve. So, I'm not writing it in *blind*. Lots of people have speculated about this months ago.

    Since Hillary Clinton might not get the coveted USA title, why go for the small stuff...? She's already been USA Secretary of State, so she knows how most of the rest of the world already operates. Therefore, she has some credentials to her "world resume" position....

    Plus, apparently George Soros already supports her (Clinton foundation) with his Open Society Foundation. Also, if there truly is a "Deep State", let them deal with putting her "over" those TEN kingdoms... Since most of the details are already set into place for the OWG, just prop her up some more, and set her up as THE reigning Queen... of the Earth... unless of course, the rest of the populations of people need to vote on that.

    I had expected France's President Macron to take that coveted position, since he is young.. Or the Saudi Prince-King elect... Decisions, decisions...

    ...hmmm... I am only curious to how the devout Democrats in our list of relatives would react to that sort of news... FB would be hopping all over the place, ready and waiting to serve Hillary... Conservatives might be shut down, but hey, I'm willing to just enjoy my cat/kitty videos on there... and let the DEMs duke it out with each other over who *they* think should get that honorary position of "United" WORLD leader.

    The USA could still be the USA, tho it'd probably be deemed by the world as some lesser entity than it has been... not a big deal, IF the UN / OWG leader/whoever it is leaves USA alone to deal with our own "stuff"... At least we/USA wouldn't have to get nuked out of existence in order for the rest of the world to take it's role in leading the rest of the Seven Kingdoms to their *socialistic* paradise.

    While we're thinking about Hillary's world power-play fantasy, maybe if Trump gets elected in 2020, he can convince the UN to move to Europe or set up shop somewhere else... Maybe Iceland (then Hillary would be a true *Ice-Queen* as her critics sometimes label her as)... ...or Rome in Italy, or the warmer climate of northern Africa along the Mediterranean Sea.

    At least that way, if the USA ever did get blown up or reduced in world power status somehow, all of the folks at the UN would have a nice new home to go visit. ...hmmmm... Rome, Italy, might (already) be the home of the world's united religious seat (of authority), but this would make it "official". Seems to be heading that way anyway with what Pope Francis has been doing. Maybe somewhere in that general vicinity, the UN can set up its permanent new home... why be oceans apart, when they can all get together in their little circle of "life" and politics...? And besides, they'll all be back in the area where the *sea of humanity* basically began.

    LOL. Just kidding... but it would be surprising, if any of this ever came true!

    Errmmm... I distinctly remember reading that there were 2 witnesses brought in by the Republicans yesterday, which sadly backfired massively on the GOP'ers but nope, not just Dem-chosen witnesses.

    Kurt Volker, impeachment witness requested by Republicans, debunks many of their arguments

    And as I understand it, an impeachment inquiry starts in the House of Representatives, which I recall has a majority of Dems so obviously it's them who are currently in control of the process.

    When Clinton was being impeached, I believe it was the other way around.

    Any comments there?

    Here's a simple guide for you, from the BBC news page: Trump impeachment inquiry: A simple guide

    My parents thought they had many more years ahead, to enjoy beautiful retirement, until Parkinson's destroyed my mother's life -- mentally and physically. She's at peace since March 1st, but that was a hard lesson to learn.

    Don't wait to enjoy life, live it now, don't wait for later cause that might not actually come.

    I think as VP, though, she could work. She has the experience of Secretary of State so that's something that can be useful especially with the USA hellbent on forcing a powder keg to explode.

    Sanders, Biden or Warren seem to be in the current lead of the Democratic pool, with the guy that looks like Mr. Mad -- Buttiegieg -- trailing behind.

    That's 3 powerful candidates right there, of which I think Biden could win the nomination. Although I'm not counting Warren out just yet.

    While in jest, you should realize by now that the USA has lost its position as worldpower the moment Trump bowed down to Russia, Saudi-Arabia, Turkey, North-Korea, Syria, and Israel.

    The only one fit to take up that position would be someone the likes of Macron, Merkel, Trudeau, ... Queen Elizabeth II.

    I assume you're talking about the United Nations General Assembly?

    "All 193 Member States of the Organization are represented in the General Assembly - one of the six main organs of the UN - to discuss and work together on a wide array of international issues covered by the Charter of the United Nations**, such as development, peace and security, international law, etc.

    Every year in September, all the Members meet in this unique forum at Headquarters in New York for the General Assembly session.

    Sitting arrangements in the General Assembly Hall change for each session. During the 74th Session (2019-2020), Ghana occupies the first seat in the Hall, including in the Main Committees (followed by all the other countries, in English alphabetical order).
    "

    ** Chapter I: Purposes and Principles

    1. To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace.


    1. To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace.


    1. To achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion.


    1. To be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.

    Basically what we deem it now with Trump messing just about everything up and making the world less safe for everyone, including Americans.

    However, the USA already does whatever it wants within the United Nations, for example it never ratifiied the 1977 protocols of the Geneva Convention:

    Protocols of 1977
    Protocol Additional to the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, and relating to the Protection of Victims of International Armed Conflicts, of 8 June 1977
    Protocol Additional to the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, and relating to the Protection of Victims of Non-International Armed Conflicts, of 8 June 1977

    As to war crimes ... which Trump apparently finds OK to pardon:

    "The Geneva Conventions provide for universal jurisdiction, as opposed to a more traditional (and limited) territorial jurisdiction that was designed to respect the sovereignty of States over their citizens. The doctrine of universal jurisdiction is based on the notion that some crimes, such as genocide, crimes against humanity, torture, and war crimes, are so exceptionally grave that they affect the fundamental interests of the international community as a whole. It renders the convicts or accused of such crimes to the jurisdiction of all signatory States, regardless of their nationality or territoriality of their crime.

    Every State bound by the treaties is under the legal obligation to search for and prosecute those in its territory suspected of committing such crimes, regardless of the nationality of the suspect or victim, or of the place where the act was allegedly committed. The State may hand the suspect over to another State or an international tribunal for trial. Where domestic law does not allow for the exercise of universal jurisdiction, a State must introduce the necessary domestic legislative provisions before it can do so, and must actually exercise the jurisdiction, unless it hands the suspect over to another country or international tribunal.

    Despite being signatory to the Conventions, there are some notable and often-criticized U.S. cases involving conduct that would otherwise be prohibited by the Conventions...
    "

    A rather amusing thought, especially when you know it was the USA who coined the idea... Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1942.

    1 January 1942 || The name "United Nations" is coined
    The name "United Nations", coined by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt was first used in the Declaration by United Nations of 1 January 1942, during the Second World War, when representatives of 26 nations pledged their Governments to continue fighting together against the Axis Powers.

    24 October 1945 || The United Nations officially comes into existence
    In 1945, representatives of 50 countries met in San Francisco at the United Nations Conference on International Organization to draw up the United Nations Charter. Those delegates deliberated on the basis of proposals worked out by the representatives of China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States at Dumbarton Oaks, United States in August-October 1944.

    The Charter was signed on 26 June 1945 by the representatives of the 50 countries. Poland, which was not represented at the Conference, signed it later and became one of the original 51 Member States.

    The United Nations officially came into existence on 24 October 1945, when the Charter had been ratified by China, France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, the United States and by a majority of other signatories. United Nations Day is celebrated on 24 October each year.

    In 2020, it will celebrate its 75th anniversary.

    The House, which is currently in the hands of the enemy, initiates the investigation, conducts it, and then if there is cause, the articles of impeachment go to the Senate, which is in slightly saner hands at this time.

    They don't possibly have the votes in the Senate, so no matter what the House does, in a tactical sense, this whole thing has been dead in the water since before it began. So, process of elimination says it's a campaign tactic.

    And none of them will beat Trump in a general election. I know, Clinton's been rattling her cage again as of late, but I really don't think the Democrats are gonna try her a 3rd time. They absolutely need to have consensus to beat Trump, and Shrillary is far too polarizing, even within her own party.

    Warren/Sanders; the socialist wing of the party doesn't have a chance in hell; we are not a socialist nation. The wheels are starting to fall off that wagon already, as shown by Warren's difficulties explaining how she is gonna pay for that. She cannot possibly do so without taxing the hell out of the middle class. I'm guessing she skipped primary school math. The estimated costs of her pipe dreams are many times the size of the entire U.S. budget.

    And the Democrats themselves have thrown Biden under the bus in their doomed impeachment attempt. Whether or not the media reports it, Biden used his influence to get his kid ensconced in a multi-million dollar job in an industry that he had absolutely no qualifications for. And despite the wall-to-wall media coverage, it is not widely reported that the Ukraine was looking into Biden's kid, and Biden told them to stop the investigation or no aid for you.

    The U.N. made a lot of sense when it was created. However, over the years, it has turned into a hater's club for the US; they only thing they want from us is money to pay for their schemes. I too wish we would evict them, lock, stock and barrel. Just move the whole thing 12.2 miles due east.

    Much like Trump then -- though he was there first with asking/not asking Ukraine to give him dirt on Biden & Son(s).

    Even if they did, he'll say it was rigged and undermine your democracy, or whatever is left of it, even more and you'll eat it up because you hate the other side so much, you've lost the ability of making sound decisions based on facts.

    The Dems don't stand a chance in hell with the Senate having a GOP majority, but maybe... they do have a shot at this. Remember 6 people so far of the Trump administration have been convicted for crimes committed, Roger Stone so far the last one but how much longer will Pence protect his boss... until the moment he's replaced by Nikki Haley perhaps? Rumors flying of him getting booted off the ticket. I'm sure he'll love that.

    You don't get it. The agenda is the goal here, not who carries it out.

    What other candidate had the same agenda as Trump, including his stances on Trade, Immigration, pulling out of detrimental treaties, and so forth?

    None.

    Changing subject... RANT... The following comments came about because as I was trying to help my 90+ aged aunt shop for toilet paper, she inadvertently picked up a mega-roll pack (with 6 rolls for $16.99 USA), instead of the smaller sized regular rolls (with 9 rolls for about $7.99 USA). I couldn't explain to her the size difference, because she hadn't shopped in several years (her hubby did, but he passed away recently, so now she has to make the grocery orders instead). Anyway, she complained the toilet paper she had was too sand-papery, and NOT soft enough. So, she opted for the super softest (dust producing) paper rolls out there. She also wanted "baby wipes" but I think that was for #2, not #1. Store gave her the anti-bacterial hand wipes, instead... ugh!

    So, here's the rant for both grocery stores AND toilet paper manufacturers...

    GRIPE...!!! Toilet paper now comes in SUPER-MEGA and MEGA sized rolls. Grocery stores don't even sell the adapters for the bigger sizes. So, home abodes will need to get new holders to MAX out on these sizes. Even the former roll holders are NOT big enough to hold these rolls in. People now need to get an open standing holder with non-binding (open) roll holder at top.

    I'm all for extra toilet paper as back-up stock supplies, but some households do NOT have the space (tiny bathrooms!) nor the finances to support this insane SUPER-SIZED roll. My mega roll sits on a shelf, NOT on a toilet roller, because it does NOT fit. Even the shelf space shrunk with other items sitting beside it that should be OFF the floor and higher up.

    So, now I have to buy an open toilet paper storage holder just to keep the rolls in the bathroom in case the main roll runs out of paper? Need soft tissue, too, which produces paper dust all over the floor. At least the storage holders contained some of the dust, but apparently not any more. Say "hello" to the new dusty world of (unsanitary) hygiene.

    This world is getting nutzo.

    But aside from the "mega" sizes attempting to make the standard "regular" (or normal) sizes go obsolete, next step might end up banning toilet paper altogether... and don't think that won't ever happen... most countries where toilet paper became scarce did so, because of socialists/communists blocking it with "shortages" (such as Venezuela)... thus, resorting to what? hoarding? using washcloths and laundering those just like diapers?

    Is this a fast-track way of the companies to force going by ways of the GREEN NEW DEAL, ahead of even such a system being enforced on all peoples?

    What happens when the water supplies go dry, too...? Wiping diarrhea off one's own rump takes forever, and never makes one hygienically clean enough without that extra gel cleaner or *flushable* wipe that should not even be flushed down some pipe. Bag the used wipe instead and place it into the garbage for land fill. Smells awful... and some respiratory infections can come from breathing in those airborne fumes.

The following comments came about because as I was trying to help my 90+ aged aunt shop for toilet paper, she inadvertently picked up a mega-roll pack (with 6 rolls for $16.99 USA), instead of the smaller sized regular rolls (with 9 rolls for about $7.99 USA). I couldn't explain to her the size difference, because she hadn't shopped in several years (her hubby did, but he passed away recently, so now she has to make the grocery orders instead). Anyway, she complained the toilet paper she had was too sand-papery, and NOT soft enough. So, she opted for the super softest (dust producing) paper rolls out there. She also wanted "baby wipes" but I think that was for #2, not #1. Store gave her the anti-bacterial hand wipes, instead... ugh!

    So, here's the rant for both grocery stores AND toilet paper manufacturers...

    GRIPE...!!! Toilet paper now comes in SUPER-MEGA and MEGA sized rolls. Grocery stores don't even sell the adapters for the bigger sizes. So, home abodes will need to get new holders to MAX out on these sizes. Even the former roll holders are NOT big enough to hold these rolls in. People now need to get an open standing holder with non-binding (open) roll holder at top.

    I'm all for extra toilet paper as back-up stock supplies, but some households do NOT have the space (tiny bathrooms!) nor the finances to support this insane SUPER-SIZED roll. My mega roll sits on a shelf, NOT on a toilet roller, because it does NOT fit. Even the shelf space shrunk with other items sitting beside it that should be OFF the floor and higher up.

    So, now I have to buy an open toilet paper storage holder just to keep the rolls in the bathroom in case the main roll runs out of paper? Need soft tissue, too, which produces paper dust all over the floor. At least the storage holders contained some of the dust, but apparently not any more. Say "hello" to the new dusty world of (unsanitary) hygiene.

    This world is getting nutzo.

    I like the super mega rolls. You don't have to change the roll as often, and it lessens the chance of finishing task at hand and realizing you're out of a crucial item.

    You do have to get the oversize holder, though.

    Venezuela's issues go beyond TP though. They've adopted a system which doesn't work.

    Oh, and in case you haven't noticed, the world has been nutzo for quite some time now.

    None.
    Probably for good reason too.

    A recurring theme living with someone who "forgets" to replace the roll when it runs out.

    You may not agree, but there are plenty of folks who agree with and support the agenda Trump is pushing.
