1…………> “This Is The Moment”: Prince Harry & Meghan

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have married at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, in a ceremony watched by 600 guests, including stars of a non-Royal variety led by George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, and Ms. Markle’s co-stars from the TV show “Suits”, joined by millions of people on TV worldwide as the blessed pair vowed to love, comfort, honor and protect each other.

Ms. Markle entered the chapel alone before walking along the quire arm-in-arm with heir-to-the-throne, Prince Charles.

Visibly nervous before the big moment, Prince Harry was nothing but smiles as he saw his bride, just whispering to Ms. Markle, “You look amazing,”.

2…………> Spratly’s: PLA Bomber Airbases

People’s Daily, China

@PDChina

Chinese bombers including the H-6K conduct takeoff and landing training on an island reef at a southern sea area.

1:00 AM – May 18, 2018

105 people are talking about this, as world “Fake News ” media and “New World Disorder” talking heads are breathlessly waiting for President Trump to meet Mr.Xi nephew Comrade Un, while the PLA air force has landed long-range bombers on an airstrip in the South China Sea Spratly group of seven manmade islands that are equipped them with runways, hangars, radar, and missile stations, all pirated out in violation of international law.

“A division of the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) recently organized multiple bombers such as the H-6K to conduct take-off and landing training on islands and reefs in the South China Sea in order to improve our ability to ‘reach all territory, conduct strikes at any time and strike in all directions’,” a statement read.

3……….> Space Creatures: Octopuses

The universally accepted theory that octopuses evolved from a nautiloid that inhabited the Earth about 500 million years ago is being contradicted by a recent discovery that they can manipulate their own RNA to adapt to almost any environment, a feature that “seem to be borrowed from a distant terrestrial evolution”; i.e. an inference published in a paper of the journal “Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology” that “cryopreserved and matrix protected fertilized octopus eggs” might have been brought to Earth via a comet or other extraterrestrial object, noting that such objects often contain traces of organic matter.

If we ever get to talk with the UFO aliens, will they turn to be octopuses dressed in intergalactic space suits, flashing iPhones made of “Proxima Centauri” cerintian crystals? Have you read “Blue House Rock”?

4…………> Persian “Ganat”: In Guadalajara

What a deep, 1200 feet long, perfectly straight, water carrying underground tunnel build and named “ganat” by the Persians nearly 5000 years ago doing in the little town of La Venta, west of Guadalajara?


With an illuminating hole in the ceiling 33 feet, and nearly constant 2% grade allowing water flow without using any energy, the qanat could supply water for at least the next 200 years, according to Dr. Phil Weigand, the discoverer of western Mexico’s circular pyramids or Guachimontones.

5…………> Change In Command: US Pacific Fleet

 
 
 Adm. John C. Aquilino relieved Adm. Scott Swift as commander of U.S. Pacific Fleet during a change of command ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, May 17.


“I am grateful for the opportunities the Navy has provided. Most of all, I love the Navy for the relationships I have developed. But to finish my career here, in the Pacific Fleet, the only fleet I have ever sailed in, headquartered in the city I was born in, in the harbor of my father’s first command, doing what I love is something dreams are made of,” 
Adm. Scott Swift said, thanking the Navy, the Sailors and civilians at Pacific Fleet for their hard work at the command.

With the historic USS Arizona and Battleship Missouri memorials as the backdrop, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson welcomed Aquilino and recognized Swift’s achievements as Pacific Fleet commander.

“This is a celebration of the Pacific Fleet,” said Richardson. “In the action of a single salute, all authority, all responsibility, and all accountability will transfer from Admiral Swift to Admiral Aquilino. And with that transfer of command, with that salute, so to go our loyalties. So we are indeed saddened to see [Admiral Swift] and Trish go, but they are being replaced by another superb leadership team [Admiral Aquilino] and Laura. Congratulations on your selection to this unbelievably vital position. You are the perfect team to lead the fleet to a new level of performance.”

After assuming command, Aquilino said his mission was clear – be ready to execute prompt and sustained combat operations at sea against any adversary, and win.

“A great power competition has reemerged as the central challenge to security and prosperity against our nation,” said Aquilino. “Nowhere are the stakes of that great power competition higher than here in the Indo-Pacific region. To any potential adversary that wishes to challenge us, the secretary of defense said it best, ‘You can have no better friend, or you can have no worse enemy’ than the U.S. Pacific Fleet; that choice will be yours.”

U.S. Pacific Fleet is the world’s largest fleet command, encompassing 100 million square miles, more than half the Earth’s surface, from Antarctica to the Arctic Circle and from the west coast of the United States into the Indian Ocean. The U.S. Pacific Fleet consists of more than 200 ships and submarines, nearly 1,200 aircraft, and more than 130,000 Sailors and civilians.

1…………> A Run On The Dollar: Pakistan
“State Bank of Pakistan has issued the circular and formally allowed both public and private enterprises [both Pakistanis and Chinese] to use Chinese currency for bilateral trade and investment activities estimated to be in the $15 billion range,” State Minister for Finance Rana Afzal declared as his office formally denominated the use of Chinese currency yuan for the trade after both countries agreed the move could take away the burden of relying on U.S. dollars.


The decision came soon after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened Pakistan to stop all aid to Islamabad.

2…………> Cease & Desist: Stop That Book

 
President Trump’s lawyer says he will attempt to stop the publication of a book  named appropriately “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”, by journalist Michael Wolff,  that portrays an inept President in a fumbling White House, threatening legal action against former top aide Steve Bannon over “defamatory” comments.

The book and its accusation that have the hallmark of cheap, unsubstantiated tabloid trash peace, set off a political firestorm with a portrayal of Mr Trump not wanting to win the 2016 election and being unprepared for the job, and stories attributed to former chief strategist Mr Bannon, who is quoted as describing a Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic”.

3…………> Fussion GPS Fiasco: Slammed By Courts

U.S. District Judge Richard Leon denied Fusion GPS’s attorneys effort to keep the House committee from bank records it sought, obliterating all four contentious claims by which Fusion GPS tried to block the congressional subpoena. That subpoena included requests for records of payments from Fusion GPS to journalists who have covered the Russian dossier story.

Fusion said the request for records lacked a valid legislative purpose, were overbroad and irrelevant, violated First Amendment rights to speech and association, and violated financial privacy laws. The judge disagreed on each count, despite Fusion GPS founders Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritschjan an op-ed for The New York Times, claiming they and their opposition research firm were nothing but an open book and were seeking greater transparency from three congressional committees who have been digging into the probe of Russian election meddling.


A spokesman for Sen. Chuck Grassley of the Senate Judiciary Committee disagreed with the defendants claim that the firm and its principals routinely fought the committee. Spokesman Taylor Foy said, “Senator Grassley provided Fusion GPS an opportunity for transparency six months ago when he invited the firm to publicly testify at an open committee hearing.

4…………> Essence Of Germany: Sausages

Is there something more homy and welcome than a roll of well done German sausage with sauerkraut and potato pancakes on the side on a cold winter day? 

Is there another nation on the face of this earth that has more idioms that have enshrined the love for their meats and sausages than the Germans, creators of the immortal saying, ‘Alles hat ein Ende, nur die Wurst hat zwei’ (‘Everything has an end; only the sausage has two’)? Almost certainly not, since every province, town and village in this magical country has their time tested recipes for meat cuts and “wurst”, all waiting for a glass of ice cold beer to put its stamp of immortality of an wonderful and unforgettable day.

5…………> Bannon In Hot Water: Lawyers

Castle “Bannon” and his hordes have come under fire from Generalissimus Trump’s generals, with the first salvo fired at the “Fake News Barbarians” by attorney Charles J. Harder of the firm Harder Mirell & Abrams LLP, saying in a statement, “This law firm represents President Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. On behalf of our clients, legal notice was issued today to Stephen K. Bannon, that his actions of communicating with author Michael Wolff regarding an upcoming book give rise to numerous legal claims including defamation by libel and slander, and breach of his written confidentiality and non-disparagement agreement with our clients. Legal action is imminent.”

In the letter to the man previously hated by Hillary Clinton’s “Fake News Media” and labeled as “Bannon the Barbarian”, Harder, writes, “You [Bannon] have breached the Agreement by, among other things, communicating with author Michael Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company, disclosing Confidential Information to Mr. Wolff, and making disparaging statements and in some cases outright defamatory statements to Mr. Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company, knowing that they would be included in Mr. Wolff’s book and publicity surrounding the marketing and sale of his book.”

Mr. Bannon has gone “AWOL” and has not responded to ABC News’ request for comment.
