*“The Silence”* by Chet Raymo “The hiding places of my power Seem open; I approach, and then they close; I see by glimpses now; when age comes on, May scarcely see at all, and I would give, While yet we may, as far as words can give, A substance and a life to what I feel...” "These few lines from Wordsworth's "The Prelude" leapt off the page at me this morning. They capture well enough what my life has become.

Trump's Reckless Syria Folly

US policy toward Syria has been a tangle of absurdities since 2012. President Obama promised 16 times that he would never put US "boots on the ground" in the four-sided Syrian civil war. He quietly abandoned that pledge and, starting in 2014, launched more more than 5,000 air... more »

*Dave Majumdar* *Security, * Could this be the next major nuclear disaster? *“Radiation leakages will come sooner or later if we just leave the K-27 there. The sub has already been on the seafloor for 30 years, and it was rusty even before it was sunken.

How to say what a "news channel" wants!

*TUESDAY, JUNE 27, 2017Stoddard conquers death:* If 15 million fewer people are insured next year, will premature deaths occur? To state the obvious, yes, some will. Insurance, and health care, are like that! Still and all, the bosses at Fox don't want such things said on the air. A. B. Stoddard seemed to know that when she appeared on the channel last night. Stoddard was part of "the all-star panel" on last night's Special Report.

Donald Trump, hater of "fake news," once served as a source for stories in the National Enquirer, even had his own byline.

Gryphen at The Immoral Minority - 10 hours ago
This comes from a rather expansive story in The New Yorker focused on Trump's relationship with the CEO of American Media, and publisher of the National Enquirer, David Pecker: *In the eighties and early nineties, Trump was something of a fixture in the Enquirer, thanks to his multiple marriages. A typical headline from 1990 read “trump’s mistress cheats on donald with tom cruise.” But, once Pecker took over, critical coverage of Trump vanished. “They have an agreement where David would not write anything that damages Donald,” a senior A.M.I. official from this period told me. * ... more »

*North Korea *- The Mouse that Roared A June 23 *Rodong Sinmun* (North Korean News) article calling President Trump a “rough and reckless war maniac” and a “lunatic” is the latest—and harshest—in a series of commentaries attacking the President by name. It's odd that the Norks are not nearly as tough on President Trump as the elite, smug, American media is. None the less, the North Korean rhetoric is ratcheting up, as they consider whether or not to test another nuclear weapon. You'll note that I often lead off with a discussion of events in North Korea. I do this because I belie... more »

4 ways the Supreme Court could rule on Trump's travel ban

Anthony Johnstone, Professor of Constitutional Law, The University of Montana at Politics + Society – The Conversation - 10 hours ago
The Supreme Court has decided to hear two legal challenges to President Donald Trump’s revised “travel ban.” Among other things, the executive order Trump signed in March temporarily bars entry of nationals from six predominantly Muslim countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. In cases arising out of Maryland and Hawaii, lower courts had blocked applying the ban to all nationals from the six countries. Now, under the Supreme Court’s June 26 order, family members, students, employees and others with “a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United St... more »

Get Us Out of NAFTA! Stop the North American Union

TNA Video at rss - 11 hours ago
[image: jbs-get-us-out-of-nafta]VIDEO - Millions of Americans voted for Trump to “rip up those trade deals.” He said NAFTA is “the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere, but certainly ever signed in this country.” But globalists in and out of the administration have convinced Trump to renegotiate instead of withdraw. They are making a mad dash to stampede America into expanding NAFTA. If you think NAFTA is bad now, it's going to get a whole lot worse if we don't stop the globalists from turning it into a North American Union!

It was one of Trump’s best performances anywhere-- although that probably had more to do with the dislike many Okalhomans have for Hillary. Bernie beat her in the primary 174,228 (51.9%) to 139,443 (41.5%). And Trump came in a distant second in the GOP primary that same day, winning just 130,267 votes (28.32%), far fewer votes than Bernie got.
