Trump's response: deadly explosion in Manchester is the work of "losers"
Here's some economic facts regarding land in my area that come to bear on this topic ...

1) Cropland leases for $100 - 200 per acre, sometimes more.  Sells for up to $5000 per acre. Also ... this land type is degrading the quickest.
2) Pastureland leases for about $50 per acre.  Sells for $3000-4000 per acre.  This land is degrading somewhat, but not quickly.
3) Rolling woodland leases for as little as $10 per acre.  Sells for $1000-2000 per acre.  This land is not degrading.

Don't need cropland.
Don't need pastureland.
Don't need rolling woodland.

Just need a plastic tote.
I didn't read  95% of this, nor watch the video.

But my suggestion is to send the poop into space via launch rockets, thereby getting it off the planet entirely.

Trump defies the court ordered May 19th deadline to turn over Giuliani travel ban memo:

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on Saturday [05.20.2017] blasted President Trump for ignoring a court order demanding he release a memo drafted under former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's guidance that outlined a plan to implement a travel ban without making it seem as if it was directly aimed at Muslims.

A federal judge in Detroit ordered the Trump administration to turn over the memo by May 19, according to reports. The ACLU said Saturday that Trump did not meet the deadline on Friday.

"If, as the administration claims, the Executive Order is not a Muslim Ban, then why is the administration refusing to turn over the Giuliani memo? What is in that document that the government doesn't want the court to see?" Miriam Aukerman, Senior Staff Attorney at the ACLU of Michigan, said in a statement.

NY Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebius is returning early, just after one day in Trump's foreign travel entourage.
What's up? Sent back to Washington DC to clean out his desk?

Visually speaking, I like the repetition of au in Saunt Taunga's user name.
Astronomically speaking, I like the reference to distance.
Chemically speaking, I like the reference to metal.
However, if au has anything to do with the Australian internet speed, you have my sympathy.

The law enforcement investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign has identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest, showing that the probe is reaching into the highest levels of government, according to people familiar with the matter.

The senior White House adviser under scrutiny by investigators is someone close to the president, according to these people, who would not further identify the official.

Both Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner are on the short list.
Probably Bannon, but Kushner had the undisclosed Trump Tower meeting with Kislyak and a Russiian banker. Kushner omitted all his meetings with Russians on his security clearance forms.
+ Kushner was pushing Trump to fire Comey from the very beginning.
Earlier today.....

You have to admire the NY Times for their timing; dropping this bombshell story while Trump & family (Melania, Ivanka & Jared) are in flight on Air Force One , heading towards Trump's 1st foreign trip.
NY Times reporting.... "Trump Told Russians That Firing 'Nut Job' Comey Eased Pressure From Investigation"

President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved "great pressure" on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

"I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job," Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. "I faced great pressure because of Russia. That's taken off."

Mr. Trump added, "I'm not under investigation."

The conversation, during a May 10 meeting -- the day after he fired Mr. Comey -- reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau's investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. Mr. Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications for the firing.

This is more about having the existential courage to overcome one's ontological anxiety of letting go of the two spaces and adapting to the modernized one space.

TMZ reporting:

Sources tell TMZ Ailes fell at his Florida home 8 days ago and hit his head. We're told Ailes fell unconscious and his condition went downhill. Our sources say he was put into an induced coma and died Thursday morning.

Ailes was suffering from numerous and serious health problems, which we're told contributed to his death.

Huffingtonpost's front page headline showing Ailes the respect he deserves:

Roger Ailes, 1940-2017
Here they are....

Everyone knew yesterday's original statement was not written by Trump:
"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know ― there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity," Trump's statement said. "I look forward to this matter concluding quickly. In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country."

Trump's personally written statements via twitter:

The reports that Rosenstein didn't inform Sessions (and Trump) about the decision to appoint the Special Prosecutor Mueller, until after the order was signed, speaks volumes about the Assistant Attorney General's opinion of Sessions objectivity & independence in the matter + possible culpability.
Everyone involved is going to want to cut a deal.

Quick Edit suddenly quit working.  I can go More... Modify and that works so not a huge deal.  When I click on Quick Edit, I get a "Loading" bar on the top of the screen for a few seconds, then it goes away and I'm still viewing the post in question without being able to edit it.  This is the same on my own posts or other peoples.
For some reason the Trumpocalypse thread isn't showing up under New Posts or New Replies.  But if I got to the politics subforum, I can see the New button next to that thread. Do I somehow have that thread on some kind of ignore?
I'm using Chrome, Windows 10.  I haven't tried this on other PCs, devices, or browsers.
Quick Edit used to work.  I think it stopped sometime yesterday.
Not sure when the Trumpocalypse thread quit showing up for me. 
Try signing out then signing back in.
That didn't work.  I also disabled my Ad blocker for TR.
Logged out, logged back in, cleared cache.  It fixed the edit thing.  Waiting for someone to bump the Trumpacolypse thread.
Nope.  Thread updated and it still doesn't show up under new posts, though it has the New button on it when I view the subforum.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
For his part, Mr. Trump, a confirmed homebody, has expressed dread about the trip, asking aides whether it can be shortened to five days from nine. His advisers concede that the intense schedule -- dozens of interactions with leaders from the Middle East and Europe, over a range of delicate issues -- could produce unscripted, diplomatically perilous moments.
