IS TRUMP NAILED AND BLACKMAILED?

February 17, 2018

Lawrence O’Donnell lays out his speculations about how Trump may be beholding to Putin’s spy syndicate.  If this is true we will never see this President admit that Russia interfered with American election.

ONE SENATOR ACTUALLY BLAMES HIMSELF AND THE REST OF CONGRESS

February 14, 2018

For the continued epidemic of mass shootings in this NRA nation where almost anybody can get military weapons that fire dozens of rounds without reloading and stockpile as many weapons and as much deadly ammo as they can afford.

When will somebody finally recognize this is an undeclared American civil war– our gun-toting sub-culture of violent, alienated, embittered males versus everybody else?

GEE, SOMEBODY IN TRUMP SYNDICATE MAY NOT BE TOTALLY HONEST? GOLLY

Head of Veterans Admin goes on junket at taxpayers’ expense…including free tickets to Wimbledon tennis tourney.

POLICE ALIGN WITH NEO-NAZIS…

February 10, 2018

To nobody’s surprise if you’ve ever studied the history of monarchies or other authoritarian regimes…power nearly always aligns with power and guns.  Army, police, papacy, large corporations, right-wing politicians…they almost always find it irresistible to ally themselves with whatever dictator or king or coup leader comes along with lots of violence and guns.

Here’s the story out of a blue state where police and neo-nazis worked together to get those evil left-wing protestors.

AMERICA, BRITAIN AND OUR RACISM

February 5, 2018

Here is a sobering quote from “transition” which was published by American ex-pats in Paris about 90 years ago.  It sounds all too familiar:

“the Anglo-Saxon superiority mania which in America has glorified the ignorant and the philistine into the belief of his racial superiority.”

Two current symptoms: Brexit and Trump.

CRIMINAL SYNDICATES’ GLOBAL REACH

February 5, 2018

From guns to drugs to oil to ivory, smugglers and their henchmen and those they bribe are in ascendance.  Money talks and honesty dies.  A man who spent his life trying to protect rhinos and elephants from poachers has himself been murdered.

The rhino ivory trade is largely based on folklore and superstition because some in Vietnam believe that ivory is strong medicine.  And its illegality has driven up the price making it a status symbol of wealth.  The elephant ivory goes largely to the Chinese market for carvings, again a status symbol.

IS HANNITY THE NEW SHADOW CABINET MEMBER?

February 2, 2018

Along with the oil guy who first told Trump how important it was to some oil magnates that the ANWR be opened to oil drilling?  After all the environmentalists got their way for forty years, so it’s time to pay obeisance to greed for a change.

Besides, them odd-looking pale bears are dying off anyway, right?  Must be god’s will….

Here’s a piece speculating on just how influence Hannity now has with the attention-obsessed  boob in the White House.  Makes sense, Trump has been direct about saying his political life is just a daily reality-TV show and ratings are what counts.

GARBAGE DAY

January 31, 2018

January 31, 2018

Twice in as many years the Republican Party leaders have slammed into a heap of garbage.  Last year it was the Trump Campaign with its condensed load of bullshit, racism, claptrap and misogyny.  They leaned down, picked it up on loaded all that garbage onto their campaign train.

Today the Republican leaders’ train actually hit a real truck with real garbage.  One dead, collateral damage, as the self-selected finest minds of our generation were en route to a high level conflab to figure how they can continue to feed garbage to the world and the American public.  Having their own variety of bullshit, racism, claptrap and misogyny, it is unlikely the Republicans needed to scavenge anything from the truck that was cut in half.  The toll: in the truck one dead, two injured, a scene like the American body politic, bleeding from deep cuts, some fatal to agencies once deemed worthwhile.

A REAL BILLIONAIRE WORRIES ABOUT OUR FUTURE

January 27, 2018

George Soros is a true billionaire, even though he doesn’t own any money losing gold courses in Ireland and Scotland.  He also speaks annually at the Davos conflab of important and rich guys who think they can run the world.  Soros is worried about the future of civilization, perhaps in its worst shape since 1939.  Click here for his remarks.
