Looks as Though Gen. McMaster Won That Fight (and a Few Other Things)

President Donald Trump has removed chief strategist Steve Bannon from the National Security Council, reversing an earlier, controversial decision to give Bannon access to the high-level meetings. ... The new memo also restores the director of national intelligence and the Joint Chiefs chairman to the principals committee.
Now for the "something else":
JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon has two big pronouncements as the Trump administration starts reshaping the government: “The United States of America is truly an exceptional country,” and “it is clear that something is wrong.”
Something's wrong, all right. What's wrong is that we didn't set up a scaffold in Battery Park to hang the financial plunderers of this nation, beginning with, of course, Jamie Dimon.

Also, "the tent city jail" is closing down. It seemed that the only ones who liked it were the inmates. The guards hated it, for reasons that make sense. (Read the story.)

And some student journalists in Kansas looked into the credentials of their new high school principal. What they found led to the principal's resignation.

October through May I can see Tent City being more pleasant than a cell. The rest of the year, no deal. I live in Phoenix, and you do not want to be outside June through late September.

Side note, Rick "Niggerhead" Perry replaces Bannon on the NSC...not quite an upgrade, but possibly more stable. Of course, I doubt he keeps his laser-sighted coyote killer on him while he jogs around Washington, but you never know.
