Stone faces consequences of attacking judge at Thursday hearing

Too many of these snowflake assholes have lived without consequences

Judge issued a full gag order but did not send him to jail to await trial. I think the judge was too lenient.

Exactly. I think Stone is a perfect example -- a guy who lives in an imaginary bubble of perfect immunity from laws. He's always known powerful people and had connections that could "fix" any transgression. He not only thinks he's above the law, he knows it. We'll see if he can weasel his way out of this one. He just might, you know. These guys are very slippery.

Trump poised to challenge idea that climate crisis is a security threat
Trump's own team has told him the climate crisis will create new national security risks. Now he's looking for an excuse to ignore his team.

No doubt Navy is the most knowledgeable on this (I know this as a fact.) All ports and operations are affected worldwide.

Yeah, Navy is directly affected. The other branches are too. Things like the lack of fresh water in places where it used to be messes with Army logistics -- and that's just one of many effects. Overall strategy is really at the top of the list. Upheaval and probably war in lots of places in the world over the next 50 years is giving long-range planners and strategists nightmares. The military is always asking themselves "What might we be called upon to do, and where, 15 years from now?" I suspect you already know that. ;-)

It's a worry.

I think I know what went wrong. I assumed my initial message didn't go through, then I deleted it to clear my feed a bit. It was after I deleted what I thought was a worthless message that you responded to something that was already gone. Hashtag PEBCAK. Sorry. Still cutting my teeth in this environment.

So do you have an automated system to post news to your Forum, or are you curating them individually?

I am seeing two methods as possibilities. The first I am doing right now with TRMS RSS feed as a contact in Friendica. I see the posts on my stream and simply share them to the Progressive Refuge community. I have not looked into automation yet but in theory I should be able to login to the Progressive Refuge profile (which is an advanced account type called community forum) and add TRMS RSS feed there. If that works, then it should post to the forum automatically. If that works, then I will add others I know are factual if they have RSS feeds.

I've setup TRMS, MSNBC, Mother Jones, ProPublica, 538, Guardian RSS feeds as contacts for the Progressive Refuge account. Let's see how those post if at all in the forum.
