Flooding SADM Thanks CESPT - Berkeley Demonstrations Turn Violent - It Was Basically A Riot - Allan Nairn Is Right - Mosul Carnage - Happy Easter

Berkeley Riot: Adding this 04/17/17 Gosh those White Supremacists are sure brave hitting women.  What an asshole, and these are the types of people who support Donald Trump in the USA. Video below.

We have been painting, Mike has been changing fixtures and shut off valves to supply lines, and both of us cleaning up water for days in addition to watching the maniac Trump pounding his chest with more frightening aggression with the "Mother Of All Bombs" and possible-probable North Korean (note Noam Chomsky interview) conflict. What happened with the water is that we suspect CESPTE obviously did not calculate pressure when they turned the H20 back on and pilas, toilets, sinks, wash machines and hoses have been blowing throughout SADM.  We had three inches of water downstairs, water water everywhere.

The streets of SADM were flooded with water.  Right at this moment two doors down from us a street water line burst yesterday, CESPT was alerted and they never showed up, what a disaster. Locally the executions continue all the way down to San Quintin, more narco mantas and threats to police officials, but nothing will stop the parade of Mexican families who are bound and determined to go to the beach during Semana Santa.  I'll be back with those stats.  Meanwhile, Paris jumps into the bathtub to get her bathers, I'll try to get a picture.

UPDATE/edit 04/16:  CESPT arrived early this morning and are fixing the street line.


Importantly, more anti and pro Trump demonstrators clash, again in Berkeley.  It's difficult for me to believe that redneck Trump supporters actually live in Berkeley, unfortunately they do live there and across the nation. I think we will see more of these types of demonstrations, everywhere. I agree with Allan Nairn:

Democracy Now !

Allan Nairn: Only Mass Disruption From Below Can Stop Right wing Revolution & Trump's Absolute Power

Of course all topics are covered here:

Democracy Now ! 


Here is the latest from Berkeley, we are waiting to see what happens there this evening and in the days ahead:

VIDEO: 21 Arrested In Violent Pro, Anti-Trump Protests in Berkeley

UPDATE/edit  04/17/2017:  Check out this video, it is wild; nothing happened since the initial demonstration but most likely plans are being made. It should be noted that the "conventional" media is calling this a "brawl".  This was not a brawl, it was a riot.  It should also be noted that the "conventional" media seems to make it appear as though the woman had her fist up and the first to strike. Watch the video, yes her fist went up, after she was hit.

Okay at some point I'll return with the drug war events in our region.  Going to make a lamb & wild rice tomorrow, already made the cranberries and poppy seed cake, throwing in some asparagus.  Couldn't put out baskets because of Paris the little scoundrel.  Happy Easter !
