Last week, *Newsweek *reported something that Trumpanzee's "fine people" are actually correct about, namely that America is becoming less white, more diverse. When Trump's Nazi and Klan fans were marching around Charlottesville with their tiki-torches shrieking "You will not replace us," their fears, wrote, Cristina Silva, "are not unfounded, depending on whom you identify as white." The nation's great thinkers have for decades pointed out the fallacy and racism inherent in grouping people by the color of their skin, particularly in a nation where the South's "one-drop rule" mean... more »

*"Diminishing Returns"* by James Howard Kunstler "These two words are the hinge that is swinging American life - and the advanced techno-industrial world, for that matter - toward darkness. They represent an infection in the critical operations of daily life, like a metabolic disease, driving us into disorder and failure. And they are so omnipresent that we’ve failed to even notice the growing failure all around us.

Oppose Fascism of the Right and the Left

Ron Paul at - 13 hours ago
[image: undefined] Following the recent clashes between the alt-right and the group antifa, some libertarians have debated which group they should support. The answer is simple: neither. The alt-right and its leftist opponents are two sides of the same authoritarian coin. The alt-right elevates racial identity over individual identity. The obsession with race leads them to support massive government interference in the economy in order to benefit members of the favored race. They also favor massive welfare and entitlement spending, as long as it functions as a racial spoils system.... more »

What to do with that torn down Confederate statue? That’s easy. Leave it just the way it is.

The New York Crank at No More Mister Nice Blog - 14 hours ago
Angry protestors transformed this object from a monument to a work of art Statues of military figures, Confederate or not, are pretty much clichés in this nation. They’re everywhere — from the oodles of them on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia, to the front lawns of obscure county courthouses around the nation. The statues don’t say much. Essentially, all they tell us is, “Here’s a soldier. He stands for the thousands of soldiers who fought and died. He’s on a horse. Or on foot, weapon ready, prepared to defend his cause.” The cause might be anything — the defense of this nat... more »

In the end, it seems, nothing summarises the time in Parliament of Peter Dunne quite as much as his timing in choosing to leave. After thirty years in office, around twenty of them as a lapdog to power, he had signalled that he might, for the first time, be able to see his way clear to effecting some sort of liberalisation of the War on Drugs -- his first move of any significance in all his time as the various politicians' poodle. So the very moment he may have proved himself to be of some use to the wider world proved instead his complete and utter impotence. And instead of a lib...more »

This Is How Japan Could Get Nuclear Weapons

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 22 hours ago
*Kyle Mizokami, National Interest*:* Everything You Need to Know: How Japan Could Get Nuclear Weapons* In a sea-basing scheme Japan could emulate China, France or the United Kingdom, maintaining a force of five ballistic missile submarines, each equipped with sixteen nuclear-tipped missiles. Each missile would be equipped with four 100 kiloton warheads. The one submarine on patrol at all times would be equipped with sixty-four warheads. It is perhaps China’s and even North Korea's greatest nightmare: a nuclear-armed Japan. Permanently anchored off the Asian mainland, bristling wit... more »

*-by Noah* 4 down and 2 to go. You might rejoice at this picture, it represents the pride of the Republican Party, but ask yourself, “Why are 2 of these clowns still there? How long? How long? Oh Lordy, how long?” Oh, and there’s also the rest of Trump’s administration and staff of Nazi sympathizers. Judging by their silence, the White House staff is a stinking rat-infested cesspool of them, hundreds of them. We shouldn’t be surprised, though. Anyone who would want to work for someone like Herr Trump is more than suspect on every level.

The Pentagon Had A Plan to Build A 'Super-ICBM' That Could Carry 20 Nuclear Warheads

*Dave Mujumdar, National Interest:** The U.S. Military Came Up with a Crazy Idea to Make Sure Its Nukes Survived a Russian Attack* The Cold War arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union produced many innovative ideas on how best to ensure the survivability of each side’s nuclear deterrent. Among the stranger ideas that emerged was a concept proposed by what was then the Aerospace Corporation under a program called Golden Arrow—launched in 1964. While most concepts being studied at the time looked at mobility, one of Aerospace Corporation’s concepts was to essentiall... more »

US Navy ship and oil tanker collide off Singapore per BBC News

Not a sheep at Not a sheep - 23 hours ago
The BBC report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-40995829 that: 'Ten sailors are missing and five have been injured after a US destroyer and an oil tanker collided off the coast of Singapore, the US Navy says. The guided missile destroyer USS John S McCain was sailing east of Singapore and preparing to stop in the port when the collision with the Liberian-flagged vessel occurred.' This is the second 'collision' between a US Navy vessel and a commercial ship in recent months. The last 'collision' seemed suspicious to me, a second raised my suspicions still further.

There are times when it will go so wrong that you will be barely alive, and times when you realize that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a bloated half-life on someone else's terms." - Jeanette Winterson
