CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: Trump "Has Spent His Whole Life Bullshitting"

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 29 minutes ago
*WNU Editor*: Trump is a "bullshitter". "Pathological liar". Should not criticise the courts and media who criticise him. etc. etc. etc... This is what now passes for commentary and analysis on CNN today.

Ever wonder why Trump won? Well, it wasn’t due to Russia. Why not? Because even if Russians could have traveled half way around the world to enter thousands of US polling places, how could they have changed the votes in all of them without a single Russian being apprehended? Answer: It was impossible. So why have the “mainstream media” been claiming that Russia did it? Well, it appears that the lying media are owned by the neocons, who seem to want a war with Russia. So, why on earth would anyone want that?! Wouldn’t that kill us all? Well, my only answer is that they must be insane. So, what is really going on now? Find out by playing the discussion below. It’s the best summation you will find anywhere!

*"The Deep State's Doomsday Bug"* by Bill Bonner "My contact- a former CIA Director- died mysteriously, just after revealing a powerful network of insiders who pull America’s strings. This is my attempt to expose what they’ve done… and why It cannot be stopped. On May 6, 1996, a body was found floating face down in the shallow water of the Chesapeake Bay. It was the body of a former CIA director, a man who used to consult for me. The Charles County, Maryland police department logged it as an accidental drowning. But many of us suspect otherwise.

I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." - Jack London

Following on from Terry Cardwell's post *THE COMING POWER CRISIS* (link) Snowy Hydro Electric SchemeImage: modernmarvels *Terry Cardwell* The Snowy Hydro Electric Scheme is the greatest power scheme in Australia but it is limited by the availability of water.

“I actually don’t remember when I was first harassed on the street, but I do remember when I first experienced it as an abusive act: I was an adolescent traveling with my mom in a crowded underground wagon, where men could easily touch women without anyone noticing and with little possibility to prevent it.” This was the experience of Lucía Vázquez, a researcher in Mexico City, Mexico. Unfortunately, her story is not unique.

While I favor a welcoming and less expensive immigration legal process than the one we have, it is important that the individual rights of Americans and those in the USA legally as residents or visitors be protected.

hail hail rock 'n' roll: rip chuck berry

laura k at wmtc - 7 hours ago
To mark the death of rock legend Chuck Berry, everyone should watch "Hail Hail Rock 'n' Roll," Taylor Hackford's movie chronicling two concerts that celebrated Berry's 60th birthday. If you want to know what all the fuss is about, if you need historical context to understand what Chuck Berry meant to all of rock, see this movie. Here is Berry and "his band" performing my favourite version of my favourite Chuck Berry song. I'm glad he lived to be an old man, and see his contributions honoured. This obituary by the great music writer Jon Pareles says it all.

White Wolf at White Wolf - 9 hours ago
More than 1,200 of America’s last wild bison have been killed this winter, and it isn’t over yet. Hunting along Yellowstone’s boundaries has taken the lives of more than 400 bison. Hunters are still in the field making kills. It’s a terrible time of year to hunt. The bison — like other wild grazers — have used up all of their fat stores, and are showing ribs and bony hips, waiting for the re-greening of the Earth so they can again replenish their huge bodies. This is also the time of year when the long, harsh winter takes her toll, too. There will be many bison who will not surv... more »

*Task & Purpose: **Here’s What Mosul Looked Like When US Troops Invaded It The First Time* In 2003, as the American occupation of Iraq got underway, the 101st Airborne Division led by Maj. Gen. David H. Petraeus established its headquarters in Mosul — a vast metropolis in northern Iraq. Over the course of the occupation, Mosul saw heavy clashes between coalition forces and insurgents. More than 150 American soldiers were killed in the city, according to icasualties.org. Now, six years after President Obama oversaw the withdrawal of all U.S. combat troops from Iraq, Mosul is again... more »

U.S. Has Worst Wealth Inequality of Any Rich Nation, and It's Not Even Close

Kenneth Thomas at Middle Class Political Economist - 18 hours ago
I've discussed the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Reports before, an excellent source of data for both wealth and wealth inequality. The most recent edition, from November 2016, shows the United States getting wealthier, but steadily more unequal in wealth per adult and dropping from 25th to 27th in median wealth per adult since 2014. Moreover, on a global scale, it reports that the top 1% of wealth holders hold 50.8% of the world's wealth (Report, p. 18). One important point to bear in mind is that while the United States remains the fourth-highest country for wealth per adult (after ... more »

Maureen Dowd's analyses of presidential character are always interesting. She uses Freudian and Shakespearean analogies and, for students of literature like herself, she makes interesting reading.

She wrote: Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories.

It’s just accepted, passively and submissively, as part of living in a “free” society. Yet, when the government wields the authority to conduct a complete search of people without any suspicion of a crime having been committed, that is far from any free society.... more »
