Here is the resting place of Rena Easton’s husband who was given a poet’s burial. It is being reported Trump has over 500 positions to fill. I suspect the RCDS is one of them. Sir Easton is a very lucky man. One of the most beautiful women in the world stood by his grave, and wept.

“On Tuesday morning, Steven Goldstein, executive director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, blasted Trump in a Facebook post.
“His statement today is a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting Antisemitism, yet day after day have refused to apologize and correct the record,” Goldstein said in the statement. “Make no mistake: The Antisemitism coming out of this Administration is the worst we have ever seen from any Administration.”
In this scene you get a glimpse of the set I will create in my new home. Yes! There will be fog horns, and the clank of sea bells.
I just got a call from my dear friend Amy Oles. She is an artist and compatriot who wants me to paint again, stand by my easel, and go back to the real world. I told her I am a Secessionist, who must go home to stand on a soapbox, and help make California the World’s Newest Nation. She said this was a good idea. I replied;
“I am seventy years of age. I am no longer in the IDEA STAGE of my life, that is coming to a close. I need a place to plant my soul, my spirit. If I don’t get this house, then, I will haunt it. I will dwell in this outdoor shelter in back, that has a fireplace. I used to paint under such a structure when I was sixteen, when we lived on Glendon.”
I told her that we original hippies were READERS before we took drugs. WE READ! After saving Rena in Venice, we drove to Oakland with my friend, Brian Purivs, and his daughter, Julie. we stopped in Santa Barbara, and rested on the beach. Rena had not spoken more than two sentences. I approached;
“You’re afraid of the ocean, aren’t you?”
Rena put down her book, and looked at me in amazement.
“How did you know!”
“Well, here we are on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and you have your back to the sea, hunkered down behind a dune, reading a book. What are your reading?”
Now, I am not going to stay in Mundane Reality, anymore, because that reality failed to keep Mad Donald from becoming President of the United States. This is not my fault. Here is my kindred appearing in the scene made from the book Rena was reading;
After camping for fifty days, we came to stay in the Harkin’s home on Willis Court. Michael Harkins let us sleep in his mother’s bed. Wanda was on vacation. She was my second mother who always gave me sanctuary when I ended up homeless. I would sleep down in her basement, near the washer and dryer.
Rena had just got naked and stood by the bed so I could take her in. In our tent, she could not do this. She had the most perfect mound of Venus, and bush. All of a sudden, James Harkins knocks on the door. Rena’s lost boyfriend, has found her. She gets dress, and goes into the living room to talk to him. An hour later, she returns. I had fallen asleep. She has made a tent over us, and is naked once again. She has the strangest look on her face. It is impish and fierce. I became alarmed when she said;
“I hate him! I hate him. Save me!”
Behold the side door in the photo above. This house is empty. I told Amy I may haunt this house, because people who have already died, do not see death as other’s do. Let us see what is behind that door.
“Amy, I am bid to save California from the Trumpish Dark Age. He is going to hire 10,000 special cops to hunt down Mexicans. But, they are not the real target. THEY are going after the Spirit of us Bohemians. THEY know we will come out of hiding, and come to their DEFENSE! The Christian-right, and the Nazi…..hate Gypsies!
TO BE CONTINUED
What remains, though, is the continuing need for some force that could serve as a scapegoat. Trump, a man of considerable ability in such matters, has found it in the media. As it always was with anti-Semitism, portions of the culture were already receptive. Many people needed to find someone to blame for a society that was becoming less comforting, less conventional, that was depressing their standard of living, closing their factories, favoring foreign labor — doing all the things that Jews once supposedly did. Here is Trump at his news conference last week:
“Unfortunately, much of the media in Washington, D.C., along with New York, Los Angeles, in particular, speaks not for the people, but for the special interests and for those profiting off a very, very obviously broken system. The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people. Tremendous disservice. We have to talk about it, to find out what’s going on, because the press honestly is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control. This is a neo-Hitlerian statement — only the word “Jews” is missing. Not missing is the alien, secular big city, the unnamed “special interests,” the loaded word “profiting” and, of course, the utter mystery of it all. Why are these people doing such things? Why do they lie? Why do they want to hurt “the American people”? Why? It’s because they are not-like-us. They are evil.
You may argue that this is nothing new. I remember Spiro Agnew, Richard Nixon’s corrupt vice president, ranting against the liberal press. At one Agnew event I covered, his denunciation of the media brought Republican women out of their chairs, fists in the air, shouting their agreement and serenely unaware that Agnew’s words were probably written by future New York Times columnist William Safire. George Wallace, both a racist and self-pronounced champion of the working man, castigated the press for its unaccountable hostility to Jim Crow, naming “the Time magazine,” “the Newsweek” and so on. Still, even an Agnew or a Wallace would have shied away from Trump’s expansive conspiracy theory.
Trump has set himself an agenda. He must rid America of the evil that he describes and that is visible only to him and his followers. He must, in other words, rein in the news media, limit their scope and influence — a task that will become more and more urgent as he fails in his presidency. The fault for that, after all, cannot be his. He will go from florid-faced fool to brooding menace. It is an old pattern. Only the scapegoat is new.
The guidance issued Tuesday will also prioritize the arrest of deportable immigrants who have “abused” public benefits, misrepresented themselves or “in the judgment of an immigration officer, otherwise pose a risk to public safety or national security.” The memo gives few specifics on each of these criteria will be determined.”
The surge of illegal immigration at the southern border has overwhelmed federal agencies and resources and has created a significant national security vulnerability to the United States,” the administration says, explaining its rationale.
In the memos, the administration also makes clear that driving without a license, a frequent offense for undocumented immigrants, could make the individual “subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.”
The memos say DHS will hire 10,000 new immigration officers and reverse a number of Obama administration policies. Specifics on how the agency will hire so many officers remain scarce, with the administration saying they are working on a “hiring plan.”
“Except as specifically noted above, the Department no longer will exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement,” the memo says. It adds: “The Department will no longer afford Privacy Act rights and protections to persons who are neither U.S. citizens nor lawful permanent residents.”
The DHS memos specifically point out that President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program remains in place. The program, launched in 2012, allows undocumented immigrants brought to the country at a young age to live and work in the U.S.
Still, DACA enrollees could be swept up in Trump’s greatly broadened priorities for deportation. An undocumented immigrant deemed “a risk to public safety” in the eyes of a federal immigration officer could be subject to removal, as could someone charged with a crime, but not convicted.
The memos say the president is directing all agencies to discern how much funding Mexico gets from the United States, in an apparent bid to force the country to pay for the wall. And they give some specifics on a new border wall that the president has promised in an executive order.
“As noted above, initial construction of new infrastructure will focus on locations near El Paso, Texas, El Centro, California, and in Southern Arizona,” the memo says. The agency, without offering proof, says it has identified the money to begin constructing the wall.
The agency says it will work with local law enforcement agencies across the country to begin removing “illegal aliens” through the 287-g program, which allows local and state officials to detain illegal immigrants.
“Although detention space may be limited at times, ICE is committed to arresting and processing all removable aliens,” the memo says.
The memos also say the administration will limit parole into the United States, to only be used “sparingly and only in cases where, after careful consideration of the circumstances, parole is needed because of demonstrated urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”
He promised two years of “tough negotiation”, when discussions on leaving terms get under way between the government and the European Union.
Exit will not come “at a discount or at zero cost”, he said in a speech to the European Parliament.
Reports suggest the UK could have to pay the EU up to 60 billion euros (£51bn) after Brexit talks start.
Mr Juncker’s comments came as the House of Lords began a second day of discussion of the government’s European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill, which, if passed, will allow Prime Minister Theresa May to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, allowing formal talks with the EU to start.

Here is the resting place of Rena Easton’s husband who was given a poet’s burial.
The Most Honourable Order of the Bath (formerly the Most Honourable Military Order of the Bath) is a British order of chivalry founded by George I on 18 May 1725. The name derives from the elaborate medieval ceremony for creating a knight, which involved bathing (as a symbol of purification) as one of its elements. The knights so created were known as “Knights of the Bath”. George I “erected the Knights of the Bath into a regular Military Order”. He did not (as is commonly believed) revive the Order of the Bath, since it had never previously existed as an Order, in the sense of a body of knights who were governed by a set of statutes and whose numbers were replenished when vacancies occurred.
The Order consists of the Sovereign (currently Queen Elizabeth II), the Great Master (currently The Prince of Wales), and three Classes of members:
- Knight Grand Cross (GCB) or Dame Grand Cross (GCB)
- Knight Commander (KCB) or Dame Commander (DCB)
- Companion (CB)
Members belong to either the Civil or the Military Division. Prior to 1815, the order had only a single class, Knight Companion (KB), which no longer exists. Recipients of the Order are now usually senior military officers or senior civil servants. Commonwealth citizens not subjects of the Queen and foreigners may be made Honorary Members.
The Order of the Bath is the fourth-most senior of the British Orders of Chivalry, after The Most Noble Order of the Garter, The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle

Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson, FRS (6 August 1809 – 6 October 1892) was Poet Laureate of Great Britain and Ireland during much of Queen Victoria‘s reign and remains one of the most popular British poets.
Tennyson excelled at penning short lyrics, such as “Break, Break, Break“, “The Charge of the Light Brigade“, “Tears, Idle Tears” and “Crossing the Bar“. Much of his verse was based on classical mythological themes, such as Ulysses, although In Memoriam A.H.H. was written to commemorate his friend Arthur Hallam, a fellow poet and student at Trinity College, Cambridge, after he died of a stroke aged just 22. Tennyson also wrote some notable blank verse including Idylls of the King, “Ulysses“, and “Tithonus“. During his career, Tennyson attempted drama, but his plays enjoyed little success. A number of phrases from Tennyson’s work have become commonplaces of the English language, including “Nature, red in tooth and claw” (In Memoriam A.H.H.), “‘Tis better to have loved and lost / Than never to have loved at all”, “Theirs not to reason why, / Theirs but to do and die”, “My strength is as the strength of ten, / Because my heart is pure”, “To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield”, “Knowledge comes, but Wisdom lingers”, and “The old order changeth, yielding place to new”. He is the ninth most frequently quoted writer in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations.
After William Wordsworth’s death in 1850, and Samuel Rogers‘ refusal, Tennyson was appointed to the position of Poet Laureate; Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Leigh Hunt had also been considered. He held the position until his own death in 1892, by far the longest tenure of any laureate before or since. Tennyson fulfilled the requirements of this position by turning out appropriate but often uninspired verse, such as a poem of greeting to Princess Alexandra of Denmark when she arrived in Britain to marry the future King Edward VII. In 1855, Tennyson produced one of his best-known works, “The Charge of the Light Brigade“, a dramatic tribute to the British cavalrymen involved in an ill-advised charge on 25 October 1854, during the Crimean War. Other esteemed works written in the post of Poet Laureate include Ode on the Death of the Duke of Wellington and Ode Sung at the Opening of the International Exhibition.
