Rahm Emanuel Isn't In Prison... So He'll Just Continue His Crime Spree For As Long As He Keeps Getting Away With It

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 32 minutes ago
When criminal types aren't prosecuted for their criminal behavior-- when they get away with it without paying a price-- it effectively gives them permission to keep it up and even go further down the road of criminality. We've been writing about Rahm Emanuel's criminal behavior-- behavior rewarded with immense sums of money, prestige and power... and more money-- and how he always gets away with it. It's the public that pays the price. Justin Elliott, writing this week for *ProPublica* shows how Rahm and other grotesquely corrupt Democrats have helped turning flying into a hell on ... more »

Fiction Review: 'Salem's Lot

Daniel Stack at 19th Level - 1 hour ago
The town knew about darkness. It knew about the darkness that comes on the land when roatation hides the land from the sun, and about the darkness of the human soul. - *'Salem's Lot* by Stephen King, Chapter Ten There's a point of view that one should only read a book once. After that, why read it again, you know what happened. Truthfully, for some books, most even, that's definitely the case. But for me, there's certain books I read over and over again over the years. Not to find out what happened, but to experience the book again. And to take away something new from it. The b... more »

The strike was retaliation for two failed missile attacks on a U.S. Navy destroyer days earlier.

That underlines the essential loneliness of Donald Trump. Trump seems to him to be a man incapable of making human connection. "He is essentially adviser-less, friendless.

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.” - H. L. Mencken

The 1970s is widely considered a golden period for Iraq. During this time, oil production increased, and astute government planning was able to use that revenue to nearly quadrupled per capita Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Life expectancy, school enrolment, and literacy all increased as well. Indiana State University Economics Professor Bassam Yousif studiedthis period, and while acknowledging the great gains that were made also argued that it was eventually undercut by politicization by the Baathist government.

I will put you in Jail

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
If you wish to understand why the money boys are so frantic to elect Hilary there it is. Systemic treason brought about the collapse of 2008 and it was not by the politicians who in 1999 foolishly loosened the governors put in by Joe Kennedy and FDR in 1933. For the past eight years the money boys have step by step foisted the bill of that debacle onto the national debt and the USA taxpayer who actually cannot pay. Trump has stated that those governors are coming back which alone ensures he is no economic ignoramus. The collapse meant that the money boys had to ensure that the... more »

Genesis for the New Space Age with John Leith - Chpt VI - USA Shares Secret of New Plane with Allies

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
Again we now encounter an odd variation that does not come naturally unless it is largely true. I know from other work that the Canadian British USA military research alliance is very much intact but never talked about. That Germany became part of it is also completely believable because of scientific skill levels that could be tapped.. Yet it is not something that an American writer would think to suggest unless it actually was true and he knew it. This does not make the rest of the story true but it speaks clearly to deep level informants. I posted a picture here of Comox ... more »

New Claims About The Great Pyramid, Citing The Oldest Papyrus Ever Found

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
[image: Photograph from 1870s via The New York Public Library Digital Gallery] It appears that the documents do not specify what was been built but do specify Giza. At the same time we also have dates of 2589 bc to 2566 bc for Khufu though this material suggests that he lived perhaps four years longer. However the accepted dates for the Great Pyramid is almost a century later and obviously part of the same generational building program. This certainly confirms the importance of this building program in the time and place. Those trying to place alternate times on all this b... more »

NYT hit piece on Donald Trump demonstrates stunning financial illiteracy of the left

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
The truth of the matter is that they failed to even try. They merely concocted a fraudulent hit piece out of full cloth based on two or three line entries in a tax return representing the turn over of billions of dollars in business that was clearly not theirs. A detailed analysis of sophisticated tax strategy is far beyond these folks pay grade. Once again, the primary place to manufacture losses in real estate is to have rapid write downs against highly leverage assets. The write downs give you your losses early but then they are recovered years later in revenues which is w... more »

The major party’s various spokesthings have all been arguing through the media over how many “affordable” homes have been built in the last three years, yet none have bothered to ask whether that tag in the context over which they’re arguing means anything. The story first. Looking for a headline, Labour’s Phil Twyford “released official Auckland Council figures that showed in the past three years, only 18 houses built on special housing areas were declared to be an affordable dwelling.” Which sounds damning.

"We may know that the work we continue to put off doing will be bad. Worse, however, is the work we never do. A work that's finished is at least finished. It may be poor, but it exists, like the miserable plant in the lone flowerpot of my neighbor who's crippled. That plant is her happiness, and sometimes it's even mine. What I write, bad as it is, may provide some hurt or sad soul a few moments of distraction from something worse. That's enough for me, or it isn't enough, but it serves some purpose, and so it is with all of life." - Fernando Pessoa

The United States has led an international coalition of more than 60 countries against ISIS. Some nations — including the United Kingdom, Australia, France and a handful of regional powers — have helped launch airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, while others have cracked down on the flow of funds and foreign fighters to ISIS. Still others have contributed humanitarian aid, taken in refugees or provided weapons and training to fighters on the ground... more »

The last man to die in the film is Sydney Carton, a young Englishman who had devoted himself to saving those dignified aristocrats from the ignorant mob.
