Salman Rushdie has been stabbed in the neck at a Upstate New York event. Condition still unknown at this time..

As I understand, the stabber shown below stands to earn $3 million from Iran?

According to his agent, Rushdie is on a ventilator.
'The news is not good, he will likely lose one eye; the nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged.'

Seems his Satanic Verses is racking up quite a record, something he's been able  to elude until now.

At least 45 people were killed in riots over the book, including 12 people in Rushdie's hometown of Mumbai. In 1991, a Japanese translator of the book was stabbed to death and an Italian translator survived a knife attack. In 1993, the book’s Norwegian publisher was shot three times and survived.

looking good ...

Salman Rushdie is off the ventilator,  able to talk and even joking about his ordeal!

Looks like the assassin will miss out on the $3 million award.

It's been an exhausting week.

Way back at the beginning there was Sarah Palin laying out her priorities when elected. She wants to reopen the investigation into Hillary’s emails, Benghazi, and “Congress should be having these huge, badass rallies on the steps of the Capitol ..they should be having fireside chats. "

Most exciting was the RAID, err ... search warrant ... executed at  Trump's residence in Florida. I take it he now wants the FBI to return all of the documents that he declassified and they then planted; it's confusing.

The first of Trump's casualties this week, armed with a nail gun and AR-15 , tries to storm an FBI office and shuts down the Interstate in Ohio before being killed.  “Well, I thought I had a way through bullet proof glass, and I didn’t. If you don’t hear from me, it is true I tried attacking the F.B.I., and it’ll mean either I was taken off the internet, the F.B.I. got me, or they sent the regular cops.”

Then: Shame on you. Your God becomes unpopular when you believe this is right and in his name:
“From the beginning men used God to justify the unjustifiable.”
? Salman Rushdie, The Satanic Verses

Meanwhile Biden racks up some of victories ... I don't understand why all the hate from some quarters. He is getting things done even while falling off bicycles and standing around waiting for someone to shake his hand.

Finally, baring any last minute developments,  probably another victim of Trump crashes his car into a Capitol barricade and blows his vestigial brain out.

may you live in interesting times ...

It's extremely difficult to keep up with the latest from the Lago Raid, but I try.

T complains they were not allowed to watch the Raid ('Ransacking' per one site,) thereby allowing the FBI to plant evidence.

His lawyer says they watched via cctv.

Apparently T declassified all documents with a wave of his hand.

Obama is keeping thousands of papers; National Archives nay says.

Search Warrant

Trump's side has been insisting that Justice should be the ones to release the warrant. When it looked like Justice would actually do that, possibly with an order to black out names of FBI agents, Trump dropped unredacted copies to the WSJ and Breitbart. WSJ blanked the names, of course Breitbart didn't.
 
Passports

Team Trump received Justice Department email, arranging a return of passports swept up during the search, which a Filter Team deemed privileged or not germaine. T followed up by posting a TRUTH (his site's version of a Tweet) about a half-hour later, complaining about the FBI stealing his passports.

now about that Affidavit ...
