As YouTubers gain experience and their skills evolve, they often make the early videos private, so that the cringey infancy of their channels is left unseen by viewers. Now, that strategy is so widespread that even the Head of State is doing it. As discovered by CNN, 66 videos hosted by Donald Trump before he became president have been made private.
The videos in question lived on the Trump Organization YouTube channel and were billed as updates “From The Desk Of Donald Trump.” Trump began hosting those vlogs in 2011, back when he was still the guy who harangued President Obama about his birth certificate, and he continued to provide regular updates for years after that. In total, his run of desk-side chats ran for 75 episodes, nine of which are still publicly available.
It’s not hard to imagine why Trump and his handlers might want to hide From The Desk of »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

So it’s probably wise to not count out Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson becoming the new President in 2020.
BetOnline.org have slashed The Dwayne’s Head of State odds to a very tasty 80-to-1, prompting both The Washington Post to write an article on his potential bid, and Oscar-winning documentary maker Michael Moore to glowingly endorse the People’s Champion:

The Week Of will be directed by veteran Saturday Night Live writer and producer Robert Smigel. The movie covers the week of preparation for a wedding in which Sandler's daughter is marrying Rock's son.

It's hard to beat a good standoff for dramatic tension.
Unless you have three groups and a fascinating bit of history like on Hawaii Five-0 Season 7 Episode 14.
It's always better when a series, especially on filmed on location, embraces its surroundings, and that's something Hawaii Five-0 has always done well.
That warm, beautiful scenery never hurts on a cold winter's night.
Anyway, I'd never heard of the Nation of Hawaii and didn't know it had its own sovereign land in the midst of the 50th State.
Thanks to my old friend WIkipedia, I now know that the Nation of Hawaii is the oldest Hawaiian independence organization and its village/cultural center/place of refuge is a fairly recent development, established in 1993.
