Nothing left to see here folks:

Trump, Danish leader had ‘constructive’ call after war of words, both U.S. and Denmark say

 

 

President Trump held a “constructive” telephone conversation with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, both Danish and U.S. officials said Friday, as the NATO allies appeared to back away from a confrontation over Trump’s abrupt cancellation of a planned visit to Denmark.

Remember the Moscow Theater Hostage Crisis? It was fentanyl (sweet Lord why) they tried using to sedate everyone.

I suppose the theory was that it had to work near instantaneously so the terrorists wouldn't be unconscious by the time they realized they were being drugged. You wouldn't want them to have time to trigger bombs and shoot hostages before passing out. That part of the plan worked very well, by the way. It fell apart in the evacuation phase where the victims would be resuscitated by trained paramedics (anti-opioid exist that immediately cancel the effect (very useful for any paramedic dealing with overdose patients ... except that those patients immediately wake up and are then typically very aggressive because a very sweet dream was ended, and now they are back in the painful reality that they just wanted to escape)) because there were no trained paramedics on the scene, and rather than rushing the patients to the nearest hospital ASAP they orderly loaded regular buses and sent them off only after they were full of patients, which just took too much time.
I read a different story. Usually this stuff shuts off your breathing reflex, so it's only safe to use in a hospital but the Soviets developed an improved version that that didn't have this drawback. So they thought it was safe to use. Except it wasn't for the seats. They had a low back rest. Anybody whose head dropped back suffocated because the tongue slid into the windpipe.

on President Trump's tweet about the Fed there seems to be a major point that it getting overlooked:

 

The tweet directly referred to Chairman Xi as America's enemy.

That represents a substantial message to China about how far the President is willing to go to break China's stranglehold on the US economy.

Mocking Abe behind his back is to mock Japan.
