OT from the blog of Jordan Peterseon's daughter Mikhaela:

For those of you who don't know, Dad and I had extremely severe depression/anxiety. We managed to get most of it under control with the extremely strict original diet. No cheating. AT ALL. I would say it worked better for me than for dad mood-wise. It fixed his autoimmune symptoms, he lost 50 pounds, got rid of his snoring and GERD, so it helped, but it wasn't good enough to completely remove the anxiety-ridden mornings. And anxiety-ridden is putting it mildly. He was experiencing a doom-y feeling in the mornings that would slowly fade by the evenings. No way to live really.)

Anyway, he went from eating meat and greens to only eating meat and felt better in TWO days. TWO. DAYS.

Ahead of a summit next week between North Korean premier Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-In, lawmakers from the neighboring states were thought to be negotiating the details of a joint statement that could outline an end to the military conflict between the two countries.

International Incidents

I think this strike has to be seen in the bigger picture of what Trump is trying to do in the region. He is trying to reorder the structure that Obama put into place.…

Many of our bombers took off last night from bases in Qatar and flew through Saudi air space to hit Syria. That was a big message to Russia and Iran as well as to our allies. When Trump went to Saudi early in his administration he told them clearly that it was up to them to drive terrorism and bad actors out of the region. We would have their back and provide strategic support but they had to finally get into the game and take the lead. He said it again last night after the attack.

Like it or not the Middle East is a very strategic region and we can't cede it to Russia and Iran which is exactly what Obama did for 8 years.

History

…On the afternoon of April 14, the residents of the Plains States were forced to take cover as a dust storm, or "black blizzard", blew through the region. The storm hit the Oklahoma Panhandle and Northwestern Oklahoma first, and moved south for the remainder of the day. It hit Beaver around 4:00 p.m., Boise City around 5:15 p.m., and Amarillo, Texas, at 7:20 p.m. The conditions were the most severe in the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles, but the storm's effects were felt in other surrounding areas.

The storm was harsh due to the high winds that hit the area that day. The combination of drought, erosion, bare soil, and winds caused the dust to fly freely and at high speeds.…

James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst “botch jobs” of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!

The Supreme Court, in a surprising 7-2 margin, took this rather insignificant case about a lawsuit just for the chance to once again publicly slap down the 9th Circuit and tell them they are all ignoramuses who wouldn't know a legal precedent if it jumped up on the table and danced and sang a little song saying "I am a Legal Precedent!"
