Not, by any means, a complete history of the Cimarrones (Seminoles), but informative nonetheless.

It gives short shrift to the Africans and fails completely to mention Juan Caballo (John Horse).

Feel free to ignore the attempt at the Hollywood-style "happy ending."



It actually ends at 45:58 and then inexplicably starts again.

What flavor Kool-Aid do you prefer?

Or did they give you a LIFETIME SUPPLY without giving you a choice?

This is a little  :offtopic: because it is not a contradiction announced by Olds..t.

Rather it is a contradiction emanating from his silence.

Olds..t was QUICK to say recently that a sitting President "cannot be indicted."

However, when asked if he was opposed to an indictment of sitting Presidents Clinton and #RealPresidentObama, the Great Wall of Silence came down as Olds..t scampered away like a little rat.

McConnell, once a holdout, calls for Senate vote on criminal justice reform

Quote
The GOP-controlled Senate will vote on a sweeping bill to overhaul the nation’s criminal justice system before the end of the year, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said Tuesday.

He explained that recent changes to the bill, such as preventing some violent criminals from benefiting from its rehabilitation programs, had won over enough conservative holdouts to bring the measure to the floor, potentially by the end of the week.

“At the request of the president, and following improvements to the legislation that has been secured by several members, the Senate will take up the recently revised criminal justice bill this month,” said McConnell. “I intend to turn to the new text as early as the end of this week.”

It's not much of a "reform," but it does help a bit.

The funniest (and purely coincidentally TRUTHFUL) statement out of the White House was LYIN' Huckabee Sanders assertion that we "learned nothing new" from the filings on Friday!

Consider (from the article):


Quote
Trump directed Cohen to pay off both porn actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal,...

People with very close personal and professional ties to the President of the United States have now been found to have ties to the Russians. Many of those same people not only lied about those connections publicly but also to Congress and/or Mueller's office.


In addition, we learned from the filing that Cohen "shared" with people in the White House his PURPOSELY false testimony to Congress ahead of time and that he and another person from the campaign connected with some Russian guy.

So Huckabee Sanders has ADMITTED THE GUILT OF #ErraticTrump in directing hush money payments on the eve of the election and acknowledged additional Russian contacts.

THE GOPers WILL LOSE IN A FAIR ELECTION. :popcorn:

CIAA-FAN,

True.  True.

Take Pennsylvania - and I believe I've seen reports of the same in Wisconsin and elsewhere:


QUOTE

In November, 381,000 more Pennsylvania voters picked a Democrat than a Republican to represent them in the state House.

But Republicans will keep their majority.


Why?

You could blame geography -- the idea being that Democrats are more likely to live in dense urban areas and so run up higher vote totals in uncompetitive races. You could point to the number of uncontested races in which Republicans didn't field a candidate. You could dismiss this type of statewide comparison, reasoning that it's the individual candidates, not a party, who voters chose to represent them in the General Assembly.

Or you could blame gerrymandering -- the drawing of districts to favor one party. Carol Kuniholm, co-founder of Fair Districts PA, does.

"There's gerrymandered state legislative districts. We've known that. It's becoming more obvious and needs to be changed," Kuniholm said.

She said Pennsylvania ranks high for the disparity in legislative votes received vs. legislative seats won.

Another one for tonight...
Not Kemet, but interesting re: origins of early humans:


2.4-Million-Year-Old Stone Tools Turn Up in an Unexpected Place
Artifacts found in Algeria complicate the story of early-human evolution.




QUOTETo the untrained eye, the rock would have looked like any other. But when Mohamed Sahnouni pulled it out of the ground in the summer of 2006, he immediately recognized it as a chopper: a palm-size tool deliberately flaked to create a sharp cutting edge. It looked exactly like something from the so-called Oldowan culture, a style of stone tools that existed between 1.9 and 2.6 million years ago, predate Homo sapiens, and had mainly come from East Africa.

But Sahnouni wasn’t in East Africa.

For years, he and his colleagues had been exploring the archaeological site of Ain Boucherit in Algeria’s High Plateaus, just an hour’s drive from the Mediterranean at the continent’s northern edge. This part of the continent has been relatively neglected by archaeologists, and until now, the oldest artifacts from the region were 1.8 million-year-old stone tools that Sahnouni had found at nearby Ain Hanech. But what his team discovered at Ain Boucherit was much older.

After unearthing that first chopper, his team eventually dug up 252 other Oldowan-style tools. They also found 19 animal bones with long indentations that they interpret as cut marks, a sign of prehistoric butchery. The oldest of these tools and bones are 2.4 million years old. “It was a big joy to find them,” Sahnouni says.

[...]

The artifacts suggest that hominins were in North Africa, carving up animal meat, at least 600,000 years earlier than previously thought. More importantly, they suggest that the Oldowan culture—the earliest well-accepted stone technology—either spread from East Africa to the north very quickly or originated in different parts of Africa independently...

Democratic leaders to Trump: Drop border wall plans to avoid shutdown

QUOTE

Democratic leaders have a message for President Donald Trump on the eve of their meeting Tuesday: Drop a proposal to spend $5 billion on the border wall to avoid a partial government shutdown.

"This holiday season, the president knows full well that his wall proposal does not have the votes to pass the House and Senate, and should not be an obstacle to a bipartisan agreement," Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer of New York and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California said in a joint statement Monday night.

They are sheduled to meet with the president in the White House at 11:30 a.m.

Congress and the president have until Dec. 21 to reach a budget deal to avoid a government shutdown except for essential services in several agencies.

THERE'S A HUGE NEW HOLE IN THE DIKE!!!

44 ex-senators (including 10 Repubs) pen op-ed calling Senate to defend democracy as Mueller probe concludes

QUOTE

A bipartisan group of more than 40 ex-senators are calling for the current members of the upper chamber to join together to defend democracy, saying that the U.S. is entering a "dangerous period" as the investigation into Russian election interference nears its conclusion.

"We are on the eve of the conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation and the House’s commencement of investigations of the president and his administration," the 44 senators write in an op-ed addressed to current senators for The Washington Post. "The likely convergence of these two events will occur at a time when simmering regional conflicts and global power confrontations continue to threaten our security, economy and geopolitical stability.

"It is a time, like other critical junctures in our history, when our nation must engage at every level with strategic precision and the hand of both the president and the Senate."

The former senators go on to write that the U.S. is at an "inflection point" in which the core principles of democracy and national security interests "are at stake."
