LEAK: Trump TERRIFIED of Running Against Bernie Sanders…

Date: January 30, 2020

01) LEAK: Trump TERRIFIED of Running Against Bernie Sanders

“Trump is getting concerned about running against Bernie Sanders.

Donald Trump’s reelection campaign sent an email to millions of subscribers that came with a dire warning in the subject line: “Socialist Invasion: Bernie Sanders and AOC Barnstorm Iowa.”

The note began: “Forget Joe Rogan. An endorsement from AOC is actually problematic.”

The rest of the email was an unremarkable recitation of the horrors of a Sanders-led socialist regime in America, but it underscored Trump’s shifting electoral concerns as Sanders surges in the final week before the first caucus in Iowa.


Oldest US mall blends old/modern with 225-sq-ft micro lofts…

01) Oldest US mall blends old/modern with 225-sq-ft micro lofts

“The Providence Arcade is nearly 2 centuries old, but when Evan Granoff bought it was considered one of the city’s most endangered properties. Realizing that the demand for commercial space would never match that for downtown housing, Granoff decided to convert the upper floors of the country’s first indoor mall into tiny loft apartments.

At just 225 square feet, the smallest units would have fallen below the city’s minimum size standard for apartments so Granoff decided to classify his micro-lofts as a rooming house. The Providence rooming house code allows for rooms as small as 80 square feet (single occupancy), as long as they don’t have a cooking facility. Fortunately, for Granoff and tenants, a microwave is not considered a cooking device.

The tiniest units rent for $550 per month, almost half the city average, and all of them rented out almost immediately (there’s now a waiting list). Many of the tenants don’t spend a lot of time at home. We talked to Naz Karim, a doctor who works emergency room shifts, and plans to spend much of the year on a fellowship in Africa and Sharon Kinnier who uses the loft for when she’s working in a Providence lab formulating organic cosmetics (she spends the rest of the time with her husband in Washington D.C.).

The bottom floor of the mall is still commercial, but Granoff limits it to micro retail so no chains and they’re all focused on fashion and art design. We stopped in at nude boutique where Amy Stetkiewicz, one of the 6 local designers, was closing up shop downstairs from her micro loft.”

$750 a month for this is obscene…but I love the general thing they’ve done with this old mall.


Warren Slides further In Newest Poll…

Date: January 30, 2020

01) Warren Slides further In Newest Poll

“Another new poll is out and it’s more bad news for Elizabeth Warren.

Fellow Presidential candidate Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is now ahead of her.

According to an Emerson College/7 News Poll Klobuchar is in third place.
She is just behind Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Poll after poll has shown Warren’s dive from front runner to “also ran.”

The Iowa caucus is Tuesday, February 4th.

If Warren does not come in the top three her campaign will be in serious jeopardy.”

Warren really screwed the pooch, and it came back to bite her hard.

Hopefully, she is voted out of office at the next opportunity. She cannot be trusted.

Maybe she’ll just leave on her own…I’m kind of doubting it, though.

01) Sculptor Robert Laurent’s Carved Chest: An Immigrant Story – MetCollects

“In this video, listen to sculptor Robert Laurent (1890–1970) tell his story of emigrating from Brittany, France to New York City in the early twentieth century. His home movies, featured in this video, show the artist at work in his studio and at the school he co-founded in Ogunquit, Maine. Curator Elizabeth Kornhauser discusses the relationship between Laurent’s carved chest from 1911 and the traditions of American Folk Art.

MetCollects introduces highlights of works of art recently acquired by the Met through gifts and purchases.”

A boy of eleven came to America, and made such a vast, sweeping decision about his own life?…

…Such freedom was actually possible for an eleven year old boy, back then.

How did this place become such a soul destroying prison, for eleven year old boys?…and boys eighteen and younger?…Hell…for humans of all ages?…


Part of [Newly Installed] U.S. border wall falls over into Mexico…

01) Part of U.S. border wall falls over into Mexico

“A newly-installed portion of the U.S.-Mexico border wall in Calexico, California tipped over in high winds yesterday and came to rest on some trees on the Mexican side. CBSN’s Anne-Marie Green has the story.”

Can they charge president Trump with littering?
