In other news, California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, a conservative, is warning ICE agents to stop arresting immigrants in court houses. I do wonder if this is could be grounds for obstruction of justice charges.

Meanwhile, Tillerson says military action against North Korea is "on the table." This could be Trump's first war. In related news, Trump wants to sell more weapons to Taiwan.

Finally, Russians have invested nearly $100 million in Trump properties in Florida according to a review by Reuters.

A Reuters review has found that at least 63 individuals with Russian passports or addresses have bought at least $98.4 million worth of property in seven Trump-branded luxury towers in southern Florida, according to public documents, interviews and corporate records.

The buyers include politically connected businessmen, such as a former executive in a Moscow-based state-run construction firm that works on military and intelligence facilities, the founder of a St. Petersburg investment bank and the co-founder of a conglomerate with interests in banking, property and electronics.

People from the second and third tiers of Russian power have invested in the Trump buildings as well.

I feel like shit and it's raining so I'm listening to the super chill Drone Zone over at soma.fm tonight. Your mileage may vary, but there's plenty of other stations to choose from.

AARP is going to war against Trumpcare.

Americans apparently still don't want to work in fields even if pay goes up. I'm no expert, but I assume this will simply speed up automation. The robots are coming.

Here's a thing:

I had a terrible night last night. Suffice to say I was operating on about 3 hours of sleep today so, if I fucked something up, you can complain to my publicist. Have a good weekend.

    Trump does know that just because he sells a US asset (like our weapons), he doesn’t get to keep the proceeds, right? Someone explaining this to him might make him change his mind. But then again, might not.

    I’m guessing even some Conservative judges are sickened and embarrassed by Trump. So that’s too surprising.

    I have zero faith in Tillerson’s ability to not completely fuck up. He’s completely inexperienced as a diplomat and he has little to no staff backing him up and of course the State Dept has been completely gutted, probably because of Bannon’s very X-Files-ish world view.

    Enjoy the weekend everyone.

    Feel better, JM.
