Japanese photographer Yuichi Yokota took us in the Finnish winter. This time he shows us at the Meguro River, that is a beautiful spot to observe the blossom cherry trees at spring. Subject that lets us dreaming. Perfect season to leave in Japan for a while.
After reading an article from ‘The Blaze’ News Site a few moments ago I felt compelled to write an ‘alter-comment’ to the beliefs of those being interviewed. We have all by now heard the Queen-B talking about, campaigning against ‘that glass ceiling’ where no woman has gone before. Is any of this stuff true, yes, some of course. Are there men who would never for any reason vote for a woman for President? Of course there are, but Hillary and her feminists followers keep only talking about a one sided coin as if there is no flip side. I guess if this was about a racial issues this would be called one of those ‘reverse’ issues. Flip the coin over, how many women are voting for Hillary ‘BECAUSE’ she is a woman. I personally believe that there are quite a few ladies who are guilty of this issue. Yet this side of ‘the coin’ isn’t something that the main stream media seem to have discovered.

Hillary Clinton said last week that she would have been elected president if the election were held on Oct. 27, not Nov. 8. But one former Obama White House and Clinton State Department staffer disagrees with that assessment.
Clinton, in one of her first public appearances since losing the election, blamed her defeat on “intervening events” — from sexism, to FBI Director James Comey’s now-infamous letter to Congress about the effective re-opening of the Clinton email investigation, to Russian meddling and to WikiLeaks’ release of thousands of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s emails.
But the one event that Clinton seemed to believe turned the tide against her was Comey’s letter on Oct. 28, saying that if the election were held on Oct. 27, “I would be your president.”
Jen Psaki, former White House communications director under President Barack Obama and former State Department spokeswoman under secretary Clinton, said she disagrees with her former boss. Psaki, who is now a CNN political analyst, said Sunday on “State of the Union” that “we don’t really know” if Clinton would have won had the election been held just one week earlier.
“Was sexism a factor? Yes. Was Comey a factor? Was Russia a factor? Absolutely,” Psaki told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “But I’ve watched a lot of focus groups and looked at a lot of polling over the years and the perception of her [Clinton] was baked into the cake for about ten years.”
Psaki then cited data from the liberal activist group Priorities USA, which showed “something very alarming for Democrats.”
According to Psaki, voters in Wisconsin and Michigan who voted for both Obama and Donald Trump perceive Democrats as the party that’s “fighting for rich people…fighting for the [top] one percent.”
“If we don’t change what we’re doing, if we don’t listen more, we’re going to keep losing and I think that was also a factor in the race,” Psaki said.
