- D.C. Pharmacist Mike Kim: ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’
STAT News reports:
Mike Kim, the reserved pharmacist-turned-owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.
“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”
Kim’s tiny pharmacy — which, at its busiest, sends as many as 100 prescriptions to members in a day — is nestled among Capitol Hill’s stateliest row houses, less than four blocks from the Capitol building itself. Founded in 1867 and named for a previous owner, the pharmacy predates penicillin, the American health insurance system, and even the Lincoln Memorial.
- Sally Quinn murdered three innocent people through the dark art of the hex: a young woman who committed suicide after flirting with Quinn’s boyfriend; a magazine editor who published an unflattering profile of her, who decades later died of cancer; a psychic who died of a cerebral hemorrhage before the end of the year after telling Quinn something she did not want to hear.
- Quinn is a believer in the occult and as an erstwhile practitioner of voodoo
- Sally Quinn: ‘I have psychic abilities; Trump won’t last’
For nearly 50 years, the entire social and political world of DC revolved around this couple. Bradlee and Quinn were the New Camelot (his career took off in large part because of his friendship with John F. Kennedy), the Gatekeepers of who was in and who was out, the Elite Deciders among our Ruling Class with the extraordinary power of the Washington Post, and by extension the rest of the mainstream media, to abuse and weaponize their will against the rest of us.
Well, to put it as bluntly as possible, we are now learning that the Queen of Camelot is an occultist, a witch of sorts who honestly believes (according to her own new memoir) that she murdered three innocent people through the dark art of the hex: a young woman who committed suicide after flirting with Quinn’s boyfriend; a magazine editor who published an unflattering profile of her, who decades later died of cancer; a psychic who died of a cerebral hemorrhage before the end of the year after telling Quinn something she did not want to hear.
The anecdote about the magazine story, published in 1973, and her son, who was born in 1982, informs us that Quinn, who was born in 1941, practiced the occult in the most demonic ways imaginable well into adulthood. Quinn finally ceased hexing others, but not out of a sense of remorse:
She outs herself as a believer in the occult and as an erstwhile practitioner of voodoo … [and t]he book is awash in tales of Quinn’s occult prowess—she wants people to take this seriously, or at least to believe she takes this seriously. At the very least, she scared herself so badly when her third curse hit its mark—prompting a panic that her previous hexes had been karmically responsible for her son’s illness—that she vowed never to dabble in the dark arts again.
Quinn’s other acts of admitted wickedness include plotting to break up Bradlee’s marriage (which she did) and using the threat of adultery to bend Bradlee to her will.
Almost as troubling is the matter-of-fact way in which the Washington Post informs us of this bombshell, in the Outlook section under the chatty headline, “Sally Quinn’s hexes, marital ultimatums and visceral love of her son.” The story is written by Connie Schultz and her criticism of Quinn is primarily limited to this:
Had Sally Quinn stayed true to the promise of her book’s whimsical title, “Finding Magic: A Spiritual Memoir,” she might have led readers on a journey of self-exploration as she shared her stories of hope and the many faces of faith in the aftermath of despair.
- Alan Dershowitz: “The District of Columbia “is always solidly Democratic and has an ethnic and racial composition that might be very unfavorable to the Trump Administration.”
The formation of a new grand jury is being interpreted as a signal that Mueller’s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government is heating up. The grand jury will have the power to issue subpoenas and compel witnesses to testify under oath.
Some legal analysts noted that Mueller is more familiar with judges in the DC court as opposed to the one in Alexandria. The DC court is also much closer geographically to the special counsel’s office than is the court in Virginia.
Dershowitz’s analysis adds another variable to the mix.
“It gives the prosecutor the power to indict in the District of Columbia, which is a district that is heavily Democratic, and would have a jury pool very unfavorable to Trump and the Trump Administration,” said Dershowitz, a Democrat who has at times defended Trump against what he sees as an overzealous collusion investigation.
“It gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage,” he continued, asserting that the District of Columbia “is always solidly Democratic and has an ethnic and racial composition that might be very unfavorable to the Trump Administration.”
“So I see the significance not so much that he impaneled the grand jury – you have to impanel the grand jury to get subpoena power — but where he impaneled it.”

( Daily Mail ) Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have purchased the home they were initially renting in an exclusive area of Washington, DC following their exit from the White House, it was reported on Wednesday.
The 44th president and his family are now the owners of the 8,200-square-foot mansion located in the Kalorama section of the capital after buying the property for $8.1million, The Washington Post, which cited public records, reported on Wednesday.
The former first family reportedly intends to remain in DC while their younger daughter, Sasha, completes her high school at Sidwell Friends.
Barack Obama: “In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves.We can’t hide behind a wall.”
In the meantime, his ten-feet wall for his Washington D.C. home just got finished. As for his Chicago home, neighbors are calling for gate and barricades blocking their street to be removed now that he’s no longer in office.
Obama’s real policy? “A wall for me; not for thee!”
Sitting alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former President Obama lectured the current administration about its immigration policy Thursday.
While not mentioning President Trump by name, Obama made clear to whom he was leveling his criticism.
“In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves,” Obama said. “We can’t hide behind a wall.”
Obama’s Chicago neighbors are also begging Chicago leaders to take down the barriers that have been blocking their street and reopen it to the public because he is no longer in office.
DNA Info reported in February:
Leaders at KAM Isaiah Israel, the synagogue across the street from Barack Obama’s Chicago home, say the heavily secured block in Kenwood should be reopened to the public.
Interim Executive Director Debra Hammond said Monday the synagogue at 1100 E. Hyde Park Blvd. wants the gates and barricades that block Greenwood Avenue at Hyde Park Boulevard removed to send a message of openness and inclusivity.
“If we could have it the way we wanted it, it would be open at Hyde Park Boulevard,” Hammond told DNAinfo. “We want to be more of a place of sanctuary.”
