Well if she does have 200+ more recordings, it stands to reason she would get good at producing good audio.

Officials worry Trump may back Erik Prince plan to privatize war in Afghanistan

Quote:
President Donald Trump is increasingly venting frustration to his national security team about the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan and showing renewed interest in a proposal by Blackwater founder Erik Prince to privatize the war, current and former senior administration officials said.

Prince's idea, which first surfaced last year during the president's Afghanistan strategy review, envisions replacing troops with private military contractors who would work for a special U.S. envoy for the war who would report directly to the president.

"I know he's frustrated," Blackwater founder Prince said of the president. "He gave the Pentagon what they wanted. And they haven't delivered."
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/militar...ze-war-n901401


Just what the USA needs. A private army for the President. A Trump SS.

I agree but maybe he felt he'd said what he wanted to say and didn't want to end up diluting his legacy? Perhaps it was the best choice. He still performs though, I saw him not so long ago at Wembley and it was genuinely one of the best concerts of my life.

I think he's great too. But he stopped writing new music probably 30 years ago. But I can't really bitch since I haven't written any...ever.

Just what the USA needs. A private army for the President. A Trump SS.
I'm thinking Sardaukar.

Quote:
"The Imperial Sardaukar are soldier-fanatics loyal to the Padishah Emperors of House Corrino, who have ruled the Known Universe (the Imperium) for over 10,000 years at the time of the events of the first novel in the series, Dune. The key to House Corrino's hold on the Imperial throne, the Sardaukar troops are the foremost soldiers in the universe and are feared by all. They are secretly trained on the inhospitable Imperial Prison Planet of Salusa Secundus: the harsh conditions there ensure that only the strongest and most "ferocious" men survive. Sardaukar training emphasizes ruthlessness, near-suicidal disregard for personal safety, and the use of cruelty as a standard weapon in order to weaken opponents with terror. In Dune, a Sardaukar colonel sneers at Dr. Yueh's mere mention of the word "pity". Dune describes the elite fighters as living a life almost "as exalted as that of any member of a Great House". Their uniforms are described as gray with silver and gold trim."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sardaukar

Gold trim, classy.

Given how a whole room of folk couldn't convince him that it wasn't Agent Orange being referred to in 'Apocalypse Now' I think the idea that anyone can change his mind on anything is being foolishly optimistic!

Trump is not partisan in the traditional sense. He's hardly committed to GOP ideals (which, as it turns out, were no big deal for much of Congress, either -- ideals being, evidently, determined by the wind).

Trump's neural synapses firing off in a randomly chaotic entanglement of his own making is what's causing all these wildfires.



In other words...

Excellent article. And let's not forget the infamous "alternative fact" quote from Kellyanne Conway. The WH told us almost immediately that the Trump administration was not going to be restricted to the truth. Yet the "true believers" accepted this with enthusiasm. They are, indeed, the gullible that the Nigerian scammers identify and target with great success.

"The United States has ended the ridiculous 230 Million Dollar yearly development payment to Syria. Saudi Arabia and other rich countries in the Middle East will start making payments instead of the U.S. I want to develop the U.S., our military and countries that help us!"
