When asked to explain the mechanics of the setup, diGenova tells Carlson that the FBI "purposely sent people into the Trump campaign to plant false information, then forced that information to be forwarded back to CIA and then funneled to the FBI, to be used as false information in FISA applications."

I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day. It rained here. It looks like we finally have warmer stay, but too much rain and very little sun. It looks like my thirty year old Magnolia in the back yard gave up and will have to come down. It's a shame because it shades the deck from the hot summer sun and is a big hang out for our birds. I don't know what happened. It was all budded and then the main branches suddenly died. A few skimpy branches are still alive, but not many. Hope you all have your gardens in and are enjoying the weather, but have no bad storms rumbling your way.

Politics / More Psychiatry Means More Shootings

What was going on? When public agencies have difficult children and young adults to deal with, they automatically turn to psychiatric diagnosing and drugging. Previously concerned adult authorities then withdraw their concern and attention because the child is getting “psychiatric treatment.” Caring, empathic and effective psychosocial treatments fall by the wayside.
