Dude! You realize she’s testifying LIVE?! Amb. Yovanovitch will respond to this tweet...yup, there it is. You just made her case of intimidation. Is no one in the room with you? https://t.co/RdKg7VqqVg— Michael Steele (@MichaelSteele) November 15, 2019
Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him.

This statement also has a lot to do with the culture of the time: The Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition (Spanish: Tribunal del Santo Oficio de la Inquisición), commonly known as the Spanish Inquisition (Inquisición española), was established in 1478 by Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile. It was intended to maintain Catholic orthodoxy in their kingdoms and to replace the Medieval Inquisition, which was under Papal control.

Yup—this is great. Feel free to just syndicate everything to Indieweb.xyz. It looks like there are some percent-20 characters I need to clean up and I should try to show your posts in chronological order—so this has already been great for catching problems. One thing to keep in mind is that your...
Oh I guess I haven't blogged in a while. Like, a whole *week*. This can't stand.

Here’s the thing. Predatory capitalism means debt collectors buy debt for pennies on the dollar and try to collect on that debt at full cost. Rolling Jubilee turned that around and bought up a bunch of debt and forgave it. That’s what we’re doing thru @RIPMedicalDebt.— #AbolitionMeansNoPrisons (@prisonculture) November 18, 2019

Leslie Bolt Dennis, who resided in San Marino for nearly 50 years, died peacefully at her home on Oct. 30 due to complications related to her battle with brain cancer.
Leslie was born on Jan 13, 1945, in Norfolk, Virginia, to Robert and Margaret Bolt. After relocating numerous times during her childhood due to her father’s Navy deployments, Leslie’s parents settled in Northern California, where she graduated from Palo Alto High School. Leslie graduated with degrees in English and French from Occidental College in 1966, and began a 30-year teaching career, which saw her teach numerous elementary and junior high school levels in the Los Angeles Unified School District and San Marino Unified School District. She also obtained a master’s degree in education and a school counseling credential from Azusa Pacific University in 1987.
After retiring from teaching, Leslie traveled extensively, volunteered in the Pasadena community, was an active member at the Town Club, and adored spending time with her grandchildren. She served in a variety of roles for numerous nonprofit organizations, including the Families Forward Learning Center, the Occidental College Board of Governors, the Violence Intervention Program at L.A. County Hospital, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Illinois, the Art Center College of Design, the San Marino League, the Crown Guild, the Junior League of Pasadena, San Marino PTA and a local PEO Chapter. Leslie was honored for her service by Occidental College in 2016 when she received the Alumni Seal Award for Service to the Community.
Leslie is survived by her two sons, Brian Dennis and Jeff Dennis, along with their wives, Jill and Debbie, as well as five grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, and many wonderful friends.
A memorial service is planned for her on Nov. 22 at 1 p.m. at the Church of Our Saviour in San Gabriel. In lieu of flowers, her family requests that donations be sent in her name to Occidental College.
