Do You Look Forward To Opening Campaign E-Mails?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 13 hours ago
Alan Grayson's e-mails are legendary because they say something worth taking a few minutes to read. No one likes being bombarded with pointless spam-- like "we're almost there" or "the sky is falling," or whatever pointless bullshit the DCCC tells candidates to use. And at the end of the FEC quarters, it's just horrific, since most candidates share their lists with crooked operations-- like EMILY's List, End Citizens United and the DCCC who sell the names to every candidate they can find, making sure everyone is flooded with garbage e-mail from the worst candidates, like Ann Kirkp... more »

A retired "Diplomad" has some interesting thoughts about the State Department and US foreign relations in the Trump administration. Here's an excerpt. Even with "deep cuts" the budget for State/AID remains in the $40 billion ballpark, which is a pretty big ballpark. The U.S. Foreign Service consists of over 8,000 diplomats, another over 7,500 "specialists," e.g., support personnel, plus AID officers, and a smattering of people from other agencies, such as the Departments of Agriculture and Commerce.

Cynics are saying it's because they discovered a story allegedly involving an 'Asian' boy being abused and white child abusers being the perpetrators, thus enabling them to 'muddy the waters'. The response on Twitter has been overwhelming and one-sided. Sections of the public just don't seem to trust the BBC's reporting anymore. Here's a very representative sample of the reaction: - Hmm...in response to the M... more »

Monsanto-Linked University Claims Russia is Promoting Anti-GMO Articles in “Asymmetrical War” Against U.S. Agriculture

Nick Meyer at AltHealthWorks.com - 1 day ago
One of the most difficult challenges in breaking Monsanto and the GMO industry’s icy grip on the U.S. agricultural sector is untangling the roots of how this vast agrochemical behemoth actually operates. If Monsanto merges with Bayer as anticipated, the newly formed company is expected to control more than a quarter of the world’s seeds and pesticides market, but nobody is bothering to ask whether the two agrochemical giants are the ones we really want calling the shots. A souped-up, big money PR department combines with millions of dollars in university donations and the company... more »

Did Pope Francis Deny The Existance Of Hell?

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 day ago
*National Catholic Reporter:* *Vatican: Claim that pope denied hell's existence is unreliable* Vatican City — The Vatican said comments attributed to Pope Francis denying the existence of hell are a product of an Italian journalist's "reconstruction" of the pope's remarks and not a faithful transcript of the pope's real words. Eugenio Scalfari, a co-founder and former editor of La Repubblica, an Italian daily, said Francis -- with whom he has had several telephone conversations and face-to-face meetings -- invited him to his residence March 27.

Why Can't Trumpanzee Find A Decent Lawyer?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 day ago
A friend of mine, a top-notch, national prominent attorney, once had a law partner who had, earlier in his life, represented a particularly troublesome client, someone who has lately risen in life from a two-bit crooked real estate developer to occupant of the Oval Office. Yes, Señor Trumpanzee. He told my friend that representing him was the worst thing, professionally, he had ever done. Aside from having a problem with collecting his fees, there was something even worse. They would be driving to court in the morning and the lawyer would say to Señor T, "Whatever you do, do *not*... more »

Their fate was no different than that of any one of their victims, an innocent child perhaps."

On March 16, 2018, President Donald Trump signed into law the Taiwan Travel Act, which encourages “officials at all levels of the United States Government” to visit and meet with their Taiwan counterparts and to “allow high-level officials of Taiwan” to enter the United States and to meet with their U.S. counterparts, among other goals.

*Ted Galen Carpenter* *Politics, North Ameria* America's president is likely to be maneuvered into adopting even more hawkish, belligerent positions. President Trump’s appointment of John Bolton as national security advisor is his final betrayal of anything resembling a realist foreign policy. During the 2016 presidential run, Trump’s statements were a curious, contradictory mixture of realism and extreme nationalistic belligerence. In the former category were his comments about NATO being an obsolete institution characterized by shameless free riding on the part of allies, the ... more »

*Heather Hurlburt* *Economics, Asia* [image: A cargo ship is silhouetted as the sun sets along the coast of Manila bay in Metro Manila, Philippines] Perhaps it is no accident that Kim Jong-un’s train made its way to Beijing as more tariff plans were announced. There’s a great deal that is odd about the current administration’s trade-and-tariff policy. The loud proclamations about punitive tariffs that turn out to be smaller, or different, than what was advertised.

“All Pregnant Women, Beware” – Gynecologist Exposes the Truth About America’s #1 Doctor Recommended Prenatal Vitamin (Artificial Dyes, Possible Carcinogens and More)

Yelena Sukhoterina at AltHealthWorks.com - 1 day ago
A pregnant woman knows – there is nothing more important than getting enough nutrients for both her and her baby. When going to a doctor, a gynecologist or a family physician will always recommend prenatal vitamins in hopes of providing just that. While there is nothing fundamentally wrong with this approach most commercial one-a-day vitamins have virtually nothing good in them and may do more harm to some people than good. As Dr. Christian Bogner, obstetrician-gynecologist from Michigan, exposes on his Facebook page, many prenatal vitamins are made from myriad questionable ingred... more »

Rare Footage Shows George Bush’s 1987 Visit to Monsanto, Uttering Seven Infamous Words That Would Change Everything

Nick Meyer at AltHealthWorks.com - 1 day ago
Proponents of genetically engineered crops would have you believe that we’ve been “modifying” foods for “thousands of years.” But the truth is that these lab-created GMOs are far different from traditional hybrid crops and have only been around for a few decades. And if not for intense lobbying on the part of St. Louis agrochemical giant Monsanto, GMOs might have never even seen the light of day in the United States. In 1986, with countless millions at stake, four executives from the Monsanto Company paid a White House visit to a then-Vice President named George H.W. Bush with the g... more »
