(6) Thirty-four years.

And as one forest died and another clings precariously to the ground, massive amounts of documents remain classified as thousands of survivors look for answers and glimpses of their loved ones in every thing they see, everyday.

Those who got a yellow ribbon as much as those who got a black one, or nothing at all.

Still hoping that before the new forest survives us, we might get some answers.

Rest in Peace, my friends.

For, alas, we don't.

And another headline from Britain:

"Tories On Course For Landslide Victory.
Labour Faces Worst Defeat in Modern Times"

And we have this, which I have never heard of and looks like a British headline, circa 1950. Which is good.

Some of Britain's media headlines.

I do enjoy the hyperbole and drama. They give us a run for the money.

Britain's Election:
Headline in "The Economist" a few minutes ago.

"Boris Johnson is heading for a big majority, according to Britain’s exit poll
The predicted majority of 86 would be the Conservatives’ largest since 1987"

"If the is right, Labour has done exceptionally badly, recording its lowest number of seats since the war"

Since the war....Gadzooks

This is way more than Brexit.

It is a resounding rejection of national-socialism, antisemitism and the politics of division and hatred pushed by the left.

This is a dress rehearsal for US 2020.

As Horowitz said today, the report does NOT vindicate anyone who "touched this thing".

As of today:

50 Circuit Court Judges nominated by President Trump have been confirmed by Mitch MConnell and the GOP.

50 in less than three years - A record for this early in a Presidency.

In comparison, 55 Obama nominated judges were confirmed in 8 years.

Trump's appointments are on average ten years younger.

And still more are coming.

These judges will be holding to the constitution and the rule of law when the impeachment disaster is a footnote in the disintegration of the Left.
