Madison was the BLANK President of the good ole USA

This is a church built at a similar time as the White House. Madison was your president. He was number six, I believe. Madison was your president, and he was the first president to enter and go to that church.

31 Years ago today

Thirty-one years ago today, the world watched a peaceful protest crushed by military violence. For weeks in the spring of 1989, thousands of idealistic university students gathered in Beijings Tiananmen Square to mourn the death of an admired Communist Party official who advocated for liberal reforms. The vigil morphed into a protest pushing for democratic ideals.
...
The next year, a 43-year-old New York City real estate mogul gave his thoughts on the massacre to the magazine Playboy. When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it, Donald Trump said.

Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak as being spit on by the rest of the world, the future president continued.

This week, the US marked its own Tiny Man Square.

Rooting Out More Enemies of the People

Inspecting the Bunker

President Donald Trump told a radio interviewer he wasnt seeking refuge when he went into the White House underground bunker Friday as protests took place in Washington, D.C.

During a Wednesday interview, Trump told Brian Kilmeade on Fox News Radio's "The Brian Kilmeade Show," he was not rushed to safety. He said he was in the bunker during the daytime, not when demonstrations got out of hand at night.

People protesting the death of George Floyd, a black man killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis, got close to the White House the past several days.

I was there for a tiny, short little period of time," he said, adding it was "more for an inspection."

Day 40

It has been 40 days now since our colleague from the Sandhills has posted. I can do no better than QUOTE HIS OWN WORDS DIRECTED AT ME:

“Imwithfred
Day 40
It's now been forty days since a once-prominent member here's said anything.

One wonders why the silence.

But just as Christ spent forty days in the desert in solitude and prayer and fasting, perhaps our missing colleague has been similarly spending his forty days wisely, wearing sackcloth and ashes and contemplating upon what a jerk, he'd been.

Or at least one hopes so. “

Bosnia ordered to remove church from Srebrenica survivor's land

SARAJEVO (Reuters) - Bosnian authorities were ordered on Tuesday to remove from a Muslim Bosniak woman's courtyard an Orthodox church which was built after she was driven out by Bosnian Serb forces who killed 22 of her relatives in nearby Srebrenica.

The final and binding ruling by the European Court of Human Rights should end a 20-year legal battle by Fata Orlovic and members of her family who escaped the 1995 Srebrenica massacre and returned to their village in the Serb-dominated region of Bosnia to find the large church 30 meters from their front door.

The court found the Bosnian Serb authorities' failure to comply with the binding decisions of 1999 and 2001 ordering full repossession of the land had seriously harmed the Orlovics's property rights.
...
In 1993, Serbs drove all Muslims from Konjevic Polje to Srebrenica, a U.N. safe area which they overran two years later, killing about 8,000 Muslims in what is seen as Europe's worst atrocity since World War Two. Two international courts declared the massacre as genocide.

Mitt Romney receives standing ovation in Denver for impeachment vote

Three weeks after becoming the first U.S. senator in history to vote to convict a president of his own party, Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah stopped in Denver on Friday night to discuss the state of democracies around the world.

Romney was joined by Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former prime minister of Denmark, for a conversation at the University of Denver’s School of International Studies. The event was hosted by the Alliance of Democracies Foundation, a non-profit founded by Rasmussen to advance democracies and free markets.

“I am so honored to be on stage with what I would say is a true profile in courage,” Rasmussen said of Romney during his opening remarks, prompting a standing ovation from the crowd of about 300 people in a packed university auditorium.

“There are a couple of times I have said things or taken positions that were more expedient than they were based upon conviction. I remember those things precisely and I regret them enormously,” Romney said. “And I said, ‘I’m not doing that again.’ I’ve reached a point in my life where I look back and I say of all the things I’ve done in my life, I think those couple of things really stand out and they really bother me. Years, decades later, and I’m not going to do that anymore.”
