Baby Steps.

Last night, this happened.
The House on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to advance new financial sanctions against key U.S. adversaries and deliver a foreign-policy brushback to President Trump by limiting his ability to waive many of them.

Included in the package, which passed 419 to 3, are new measures targeting key Russian officials in retaliation for that country’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election, as well as sanctions against Iran and North Korea in response to those nations’ weapons programs.

Members of the Trump administration, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, have resisted the congressional push — in particular a provision attached to the Russian measures that would require Congress to sign off on any move to relieve those sanctions.

Good morning.

We'll get right to it - starting in my own backyard. One of Boston's most iconic attractions has been undergoing renovations for the last two years. Sunday evening, on a favorable tide, the USS Constitution was refloated and left drydock to retake her place of honor in the Charles town navy yard.

Good evening.

As most of you know, Javi is away at the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.

I learned yesterday that President Trump is going to visit tomorrow (Monday) and address all the scouts.

Future Friday?

Being a former President is a very exclusive club. They may not see eye to eye but they each understand the journey each has had to take.

A Party in Disarray
Author: BobR    Date: 2017-07-20 11:00:00

The hoi polloi of the Republican party must be wondering just what the hell is going on with their "leaders" (i.e.: representatives) in DC. They would appear to be unraveling at the seams with a circular firing squad blasting away at will. Despite controlling the White House and both houses of Congress, they haven't been able to get anything done. After marching in lockstep to block the Democrats' efforts for several years, they've found that when it comes to passing what they want (and it's not just a symbolic vote), suddenly (and fortunately for the country), they realize there is a spectrum of philosophies in their congressional members who have to face the reality of what will happen when they actually pass what they proclaim.

Good morning.

Still here with a dead computer, so blogging by Kindle Fire this am.

We'll start this morning with an archeological dig. In August of 1776, General Washington was losing the battle of Long Island when he was bailed out by some sailors from Marblehead. After the battle, the Hessians bayoneted some 250 prisoners and dumped them In a mass grave. Archeologists think they may have found the site.
