Starting off in the Bistro Cafe, Iraq war veteran and US Senator Tammy Duckworth objected to Trump’s “deal” with Erdogan by exclaiming, “we have abandoned our allies.”
Then, on the rest of the menu, Moscow Mitch led the Senate vote against overriding Trump’s veto for his border wall emergency declaration; Martin Luther King’s daughter testified the disinformation that Facebook allows now, helped assassinate her father; and, the US Border Patrol is considering facial recognition software for border agent body cams.
After the break, we move to the Chef’s Table where Vladimir Putin pulled Russia out of the 1949 Geneva Conventions’ Protocol 1 on civilian war crimes investigations; and, representative Carolyn Maloney of New York will be the acting chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee after the death of chairman, Elijah Cummings.
All that and more, on West Coast Cookbook & Speakeasy with Chef de Cuisine Justice Putnam.
“Structural linguistics is a bitterly divided and unhappy profession, and a large number of its practitioners spend many nights drowning their sorrows in Ouisghian Zodahs.”
