Control of the News and Prospecution of Assange

11 hours 55 min ago
Wikileaks is at the center of our present struggle to maintain an independent press. The charge against him are ludicrous. The process of seizing him was illegal by many measures. The threats and billion-dollar bribes used to induce the sovereign state of Ecuador to relinquish its sovereignty were a chilling precedent.----In the larger picture, the whole "fake news" meme is merely an excuse to clamp down on the independent j

Adding Fuel to the Flames of Biosphere Collapse

15 hours 8 min ago
I was listening to this last night shortly after Paul Beckwith posted it. I woke up about three hours later with my body paralyzed with fear, as the reality of what we are doing to life on earth sunk in yet deeper. In one of my interviews with Guy McPherson, I raised the topic of insect Armageddon and his take on it.

After the Barr hoax, press has no reason to ever believe Trump team again

17 hours 4 min ago
Barr's completely dishonest re-imagining of Mueller's sprawling investigation ought to signal a long overdue turning point for the press. This ought to be the moment when journalists acknowledge to themselves, and possibly to the public, that Donald Trump's radical administration is incapable of being honest, about anything, ever.

Mueller report re-ignites political warfare in Washington

17 hours 52 min ago
The report's categorical declaration that the Russian intelligence agencies were the source of the leaked emails published by WikiLeaks -- a claim that cannot be verified by any publicly-available evidence -- will set the stage for an escalation of the bipartisan efforts to criminalize WikiLeaks, jail its publisher Julian Assange, and drastically crack down on the freedom of expression on the internet.

21 hours 3 min ago
Trump was making wild accusations about NSA that have only been the fodder for Hollywood movies like "Enemy Of The State." "Mercury Rising," "Sneakers," and "Good Will Hunting."

The public banking revolution is upon us

21 hours 9 min ago
State infrastructure needs are huge, and the existing funding options -- raising taxes, cutting services and increasing debt levels -- have been exhausted. Newly-created credit directed into local communities by publicly-owned banks can provide the additional funding that local governments critically need.

Transcending Maslow's Hierarchy to Achieve World Self-Actualization

Sun, 2019-04-21 23:48
Becoming more like the Buddha, Jesus, or Krishna is not enough. We also must have a need to compassionately work for world peace, global justice, ecological wisdom, and the happiness of every person on the planet. When a majority of world citizens attain both the spiritual and social-political aspects of this expanded idea of self-actualization, we will achieve what can be called "World Self-Actualization."

Trump's moral squalor, not impeachment, will remove him from power

Sun, 2019-04-21 22:18
Let's be real. Trump will not be removed by impeachment. No president has been. With a Republican Senate controlled by the most irresponsible political hack ever to be majority leader, the chances are nil. Which means Trump will have to be removed the old-fashioned way by voters in an election 19 months away.

China's road to a win-win ahead of BRI forum

Sun, 2019-04-21 20:45
Beijing clinched a proverbial showering of BRI deals with 17 Arab nations, including Egypt, Lebanon and Oman. Not by accident, the forum this year was called Build the Belt and Road, Share Development and Prosperity. Up to 2018, 21 Arab nations had signed BRI memoranda of understanding. The US is the cracked outer shell.

Notre Dame in Flames: Its Image Evokes the Resurrection Our World Requires

Sun, 2019-04-21 17:00
SUNDAY HOMILY: It was religion in flames. It was a reminder of the conflagration engulfing our very planet. It should have clarified the relevance of the resurrection story that Christians across the world defiantly celebrate this Easter Sunday.

Frontiersmen vs. Wusses

Sun, 2019-04-21 16:00
Vietnam is still far behind the West in the flight from nature and against it, but this is to its advantage, I believe, for its people still retain the essentials to endure whatever comes next.

He loves Pete Buttigieg for President but can't get over dance with his husband at the inauguration

Sun, 2019-04-21 13:22
It is easy to demonize a Progressive who does not toe the line of all our their values. That reality does not engender change. Allowing everyone space to grow is how we solve most social problems. And yes, even Progressives have race and gender issues. This Pete Buttigieg story is probative.

The tremendum

Sun, 2019-04-21 09:44
We have dreamed an ending for the world, but the world's Dreaming may have something else in store. Some of us may welcome that as an extension of the familiar, while others may turn away to continue dreaming of ends.

Russia Warns Bolton: 'Monroe Doctrine' Remarks Are Insulting to Latin America

Sun, 2019-04-21 09:38
National Security Advisor John Bolton is using the term 'Monroe Doctrine' in connection with Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, outraging those who are opposing the US foreign policy in the region. What he means is clear, although it is never pronounced as bluntly as that: Countries in the Western hemisphere should never be allowed to go socialist, and they should be prevented from disobeying Western dictates.

1,000 Apologies, I had to remove my actual e-mail address from this page. I got really tired of sock puppets offering me free sexual favours. (And NO! I don't know how many of them were Russian, and it wouldn't change my vote!) So here's one of those crappy contact forms that I really hate. Did I mention I'm sorry?
