Good Times Bad Times”  3min

“Beyond Amazing”

Get the Led out as you watch an 8-year-old girl absolutely crush it on the drums as she plays Good Times Bad Times from Led Zeppelin. Her name is Yoyoka and she plays this complicated rock song like a professional musician many years her age. I know Robert Plant was impressed when he saw the clip and would imagine John Bonham would be as well. I grew up listening to Led Zeppelin so it’s nice to see kids today that still appreciate their music. I love seeing Yoyoka smile as you can see she genuinely enjoys playing the drums.

May we continue to go where others have feared to tread!

Following its first test launch, Falcon Heavy is now the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)—a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel–Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost. Falcon Heavy draws upon the proven heritage and reliability of Falcon 9. Its first stage is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft. Only the Saturn V moon rocket, last flown in 1973, delivered more payload to orbit. Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars.

Lest we forget, in 2018 the Deep State went public!

Before we start a new year, let’s see the extraordinary events that made 2018 an inflection year in American political history.   Let’s make 2019 a great year – but in a good way, unlike 2018.

What were the big geopolitical events of 2018, from an American perspective? Here are my guesses. First, the Deep State revealed itself for all to see.

The Deep State reveals itself

Every family has a crazy uncle. For years American’s crazy uncles regaled their families with tales about the Deep State. That key aspects of national policy were controlled by the 1%, supported by both political parties, the news media, the NGOs, academia, and the mega-corps. In recent years, some of us slowly came to believe that there was some truth to this. 2018 was shattering to anyone paying attention.

A “Zany” clip from The President’s Analyst 2.5min  captures the way that many of us felt in 2018.

Our suspicions about the Deep State seemed paranoid. Then we learned the truth.  For the complete article, please go here https://goo.gl/nmcJhT
