As We Go Dark in Our Properties thru Labor Day Here in the United States...

We will be dark in our properties through Labor Day Week-End  here in the United States.  We hope all enjoy our live broadcast pods as our Twitter Channel will continue to be curated with updates throughout the weekend.   We also hereby join the World in remembering a valiant American, United States Senator John McCain, who passed away this past week-end with one of his final speeches as he accepted the 2017 Liberty Medal:

Senator McCain will lie in State at the Arizona State House,  and the US Capitol before he is laid to rest at his final resting place the US Naval Academy at Annapolis.     Former Vice President Biden will eulogize him in Arizona and former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush in Washington.     We honor his life and his sense of duty to America and pray that the almighty grant his family the solace to overcome the profound grief.

We leave you all with the Serenity Prayer as we gear up for a new month of deliberations here in our Properties:

Notations On Our World (Special Friday Edition): On @POTUS Watch Friday

The progression of President Trump.
It has been quite a 24 hours as the President continues his onslaught on his Attorney General and everyone else in the aftermath of the Fox News Interview he had undescoring the unfairness of the Justice System.     Time Magazine captured the evolution of the predicament by the President with the latest deemed, "In Deep", as there are reports about the Publisher of the National Inquirer being granted immunity.   This is also as the Senate GOP Senior Leadership has apparently begun a move to protect the President at the expense of the Attorney General--in spite of past statements noting that the President better not fire the Attorney General.    This is  as Guilty pleas continues to pile on especially as the Attorney General has been implementing the Trump Agenda and has been in effect the intellectual backbone of the Trump Agenda.

We leave you all with this courtesy of the team at Time Magazine on the "Digital Evolution" of the covers on the reality show that is now the Trump Presidency as the debate continues onward in Fox News, CNN and MSNBC:
