Today is the 100th year anniversary of the World War I Armistice. On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the guns were laid down in what was thought to be the war to end all wars. Salute to our veterans today! Enjoy your time with family and friends or maybe even sneak out for a cool day on the lake. :fishing:

Trump Dissed Marines Killed in WWI Carnage Caused By His Kind of ‘Nationalism’
The Daily Beast, by Christopher Dickey, 11.11.18

PARIS — History doesn’t mean much to Donald Trump... And that might explain why he scowled, perhaps out of incomprehension, when French President Emmanuel Macron – citing the history of WWI – warned the world today that, “Patriotism is the opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.” One is about loving your own country, the other is about hating other people and their countries.

On Saturday, using a little rain (very little) as an excuse, Trump blew off a long-planned visit to the graves of more than 1,000 U.S. Marines killed in the ferocious fight for Belleau Wood in the bloody spring of 1918. No other heads of state failed to make their appointed rounds at battlefield cemeteries. But ironically it seems that Marine One, the presidential helicopter, was deterred by drizzle.

When Trump announced in a tweet in August that he was cancelling that show, for the moment, and heading to Paris for this one instead, diplomats in the city of the Enlightenment wondered if he could be serious. There would be no parade this weekend, and it wouldn’t be all about Trump, although as he arrived he did his best to make it seem that way.

Sunday’s event was, as long planned, an assembly of more than 60 heads of state and government, a total of some 90 delegations, who do remember the history of a worldwide war in which millions of people died and the future of humanity was forever altered.

Did the US Marines ground Marine One to prevent this pretender president from poisoning their sacred memorial with his profane presence and the spirit of his illiberal Treason against our sacred US Constitution?

Semper fidelis!

Topless Protester Gets Within Feet Of Trump’s Motorcade In Paris
Huffpost, By Dominique Mosbergen, 11/11/2018 09:49 am ET

A topless female protester was seized by French police on Sunday morning as she ran toward the motorcade carrying President Donald Trump.

The U.S. leader had been en route to a ceremony at Paris’ Arc de Triomphe marking the 100-year anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I.

The protester, who had the words “Fake Peacemaker” written across her chest and anti-war slogans scrawled on other parts of her body, had somehow managed to breach tight security along Champs-Elysees avenue, Reuters reported.

She came within a few feet of Trump’s limousine before she was caught by police.
