The Republican Party Can't Rid Itself Of Trump, Even When He's Not There
magazine | author | date

The Republican presidential race entered an alternate universe on Thursday evening, transporting viewers to a moment in time in which Donald Trump never ran for president. Despite the best efforts of his rivals, however, the front-runner's shadow loomed large -- even though he wasn't actually present at the Fox News Republican presidential debate.

Trump's decision to stage a dramatic, last-minute boycott of the event, which was hosted by the news network and Google in Des Moines, allowed candidates to engage in a more meaty -- yet decidedly less entertaining -- affair. ... Read more

"The BoJ's (Bank of Japan) NIRP Will Result In More Currency Wars And Global Growth Slowdown"
ZeroHEdge | author | 01/29/16

"The BoJ actions should lead to further intensification of global currency wars with central banks around the world trying to engineer sustained competitive devaluation against the background of slowing global trade and growth as well as persistent commodity price disinflation. With its latest measures the BoJ will allow Japan to borrow more growth from its trading partners and limit the severity of the imported disinflation." ... Read more

6 Cities In Michigan Have Even Higher Levels Of Lead Than Flint
ZeroHedge | author | 01/29/16

As the nation rightly focuses on Flint’s ongoing water crisis, other cities in the state of Michigan face even higher levels of lead contamination. The alarming pervasiveness of potentially toxic drinking water extends across the United States.

The Detroit News reports that "Elevated blood-lead levels are seen in a higher percentage of children in parts of Grand Rapids, Jackson, Detroit, Saginaw, Muskegon, Holland and several other cities, proof that the scourge of lead has not been eradicated despite decades of public health campaigns and hundreds of millions of dollars spent to find and eliminate it." ...

Donald Trump Tells Bill O'Reilly It's 'An Eye For An Eye' In War With Fox News
HP | Ed Mazza | 01/27/16

The "O'Reilly Factor" host was trying to convince the GOP frontrunner to join Thursday night's debate in Iowa despite his dislike for Megyn Kelly, the Fox News host who will be one of the event's moderators. O'Reilly even tried appealing to Trump's Christian faith, something the candidate has spoken of frequently in an effort to woo evangelical voters.

"I think you should be the bigger man," O'Reilly added. "Don't you think that's the right thing to do?"

"It probably is," Trump agreed. "But y'know it's called an eye for an eye. I guess also you can look at it that way."

"No, no, no," O'Reilly countered. "That's Old Testament. If you're the Christian, the eye-for-the-eye rule goes out. Here's what it is: Turning the other cheek." ... Read more

ZeroHedge | author | 01/28/16

"We learned one thing yesterday: the U.S. Federal Reserve is in the same position as the rest of us when it comes to forecasting the future path of economic growth. Nobody really "Knows" anything right now. Now, there's enough doubt for everyone: markets, central banks, consumers, governments. Everyone. The best thing we can say about that: if markets accept that the Fed is no better informed than they are, maybe investors will devote more time to stock fundamentals and intrinsic value analysis." ...

11 Secrets To Eating Healthy On A Budget
HP | Julie Thompson | 01/25/16

Eating healthy is great in concept, but is always much more challenging to put into practice. There's the whole will power thing -- how many times can we be expected to resist the call of pizza? There's the fact that it just takes a little more time and effort than walking over to the vending machine. And then there's the real snag, money. ...

  1. Buy seasonally. There are many reasons people tout the benefits of seasonal eating, but one of them is because food is more affordable when it's in season.
  2. Plan your meals. We know, we know, no one wants to go through the chore of planning out their meals for the week. But it really does work. Not only does it curb the urge to just order pizza one night when you don't know what to cook, but it also makes sure that everything you buy will be used.
  3. Double up your recipes. Leftovers are everything when you're trying to eat healthy and save money. They make a quick packed lunch.
  4. Buy whole foods. A brick of cheese is a better deal than the pre-grated stuff. Same goes for fruit and veggies -- don't buy them pre-cut. Ever.
  5. Cook at home. Seriously, just do it -- and watch your bank account grow over time.
  6. Skip the drinks. Water, water, water. That's what you should be drinking for optimal health, and the best part is that it's free.
  7. etc....

In The Clinton-Sanders Spat Over Getting S**t Done, The Party Sides With Clinton
HP | Sam Stein | 01/26/16

In 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama promised to unite Washington and the nation behind progressive change. Then-Sen. Hillary Clinton mocked him.

"The skies will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing and everyone will know we should do the right thing and the world will be perfect," she said. "I have no illusions about how hard this is going to be."

Now, as Clinton runs for president again, many of her allies believe her cynicism was vindicated and are feeling deja vu.

The former secretary of state is trying to convince voters once more that her opponent -- this time, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) -- is promising a unicorns-and-rainbows vision of governance. She's hopeful that seven years of partisan warfare will help her make the case. And she has Capitol Hill veterans and even some Obama veterans echoing her larger points. ... Read more

Buyer's Remorse: How Obama Let Progressives Down by Bill Press

The prominent liberal syndicated radio and television host concisely explains the many ways President Obama has failed to live up to either his promises or his progressive potential, leaving Democrats disillusioned on the issues that matter most.

Bill Press -- a progressive champion and former chair of the California Democratic Party, a one-time co-host of CNN's Crossfire, and the popular nationally syndicated radio and television host of The Bill Press Show--reflects back on what for many progressives has been a disappointing presidency and comes to a depressing conclusion: Obama grossly misunderstood the mandate of the enthusiastic crowds that swarmed him on the campaign trail. Instead of recognizing their burning desire for strong progressive leadership, Obama tried to be a "post-partisan" president. The tragedy of Barack Obama is that, in trying to become the great uniter, he has instead become a grave disappointment.

From climate change to gun safety to, yes, even health care, Obama's legacy on important issues falls far short of what could have been. Time and again, he let down his most impassioned supporters--the ones who used their powerful voices to vote for change--neglecting their priorities and wasting his potential by either not doing enough or, worse, repeating the errors of his predecessor.

President Obama rode into office on a celebratory tide of liberal jubilation, but as his typically centrist presidency comes to a close, he leaves his supporters haunted by what might have been.

How Trump and Palin Are a Match Made in Heaven
Rolling Stone | Tessa Stuart | 01/21/16

... "Everybody was trying to get Sarah. Everybody wanted that endorsement," Trump later said on the Today Show. But was there ever any doubt that her vote belonged to Trump, and Trump alone? Those two go together like peanut butter and elk meat. Poor Ted Cruz never stood a chance. ... Read more

They both love books - Both Palin and Trump are best-selling authors. Trump has more than two dozen titles to his name, and his most popular book, The Art of the Deal, led the New York Times' best-sellers list for 51 weeks.

Palin's 2009 book Going Rogue sold two million copies and spent six weeks atop the Times' best-sellers list."

They share a passion for TV - Trump has 14 seasons of The Apprentice, and seven of Celebrity Apprentice, under his belt.

Palin, meanwhile, spent five years as a Fox News contributor, and did one season each of the reality shows Sarah Palin's Alaska (on TLC) and Amazing America With Sarah Palin (on the Sportsman Network).

Both have big, traditional American families - If they both decided to leave their respective spouses tomorrow, Trump and Palin's superfamily would be a fearsome answer to The Brady Bunch. Instead of three children each, both have five. Trump's brood range in age from 9 to 38: Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric, whom he had with his first wife, Ivana; Tiffany, whose mother is the actress Marla Maples; and Barron, his son of his current wife, Melania.

Sarah and Todd Palin have five kids together -- Track, 26; Bristol, 25; Willow, 21; Piper 14; and Trig, 7.

Both have only the shakiest, most fragile grip on foreign policy - During an interview with CNN in September, Trump said, "Let Syria and ISIS fight. Why do we care? Let ISIS and Syria fight. And let Russia, they're in Syria already, let them fight ISIS. Look, I don't want ISIS. ISIS is bad. They are evil. When they start doing with a head chopping... these are really bad dudes.... Let Russia take care of ISIS.... Let them worry about ISIS. Let them fight it out."

Palin echoed Trump's sentiments during her endorsement speech, saying the U.S. needs to "quit footing the bill for these nations who are oil-rich ...

They share an ardent admiration for Vladmir Putin - Trump has complimented the Russian president on several occasions, calling him "highly respected within his own country and beyond." Palin has spoken favorably of his masculinity as compared to President Obama's.

Each has penchant for nonsensical rhetoric - To wit, a sampling from speeches both recently gave in Iowa:

Trump: "How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of the country? ....

Palin: "They stomp on our neck, and then they tell us, 'Just chill, OK, just relax.' Well, look, we are mad, and we've been had. ...

They share the same views on cultural assimilation - Namely: they think immigrants should do it, or get out.

They agree on important issues -- for example, that Muslims should be banned from te U.S. - Trump has advocated for banning all Muslims from entering the United States "until we can figure out what's going on." Palin believes Trump's proposed Muslim ban is "common sense."

The "Real" Donald Trump - A Fascinating Interview From 1990
ZeroHedge | author | 01/26/16

A President Trump is far more likely to occur in our lifetimes than many want to admit. His chances ride on the fact that the current system is terminally corrupt, as well as socially and economically bankrupt. It will crash and burn, whether in slow motion like the past eight years, or very rapidly over the next several. Someone will likely step in to fill this void. In 1990, Donald Trump conducted a lengthy interview with Playboy Magazine. It provides an absolutely fascinating window into the man's mind... Read more

There Will Be Chaos: Big Oil's Collapse and the Birth of a New World Order
AlterNet | Michael Klare | 01/14/16

The longer such price levels persist, the more devastating the consequences are likely to be.

As 2015 drew to a close, many in the global energy industry were praying that the price of oil would bounce back from the abyss, restoring the petroleum-centric world of the past half-century. All evidence, however, points to a continuing depression in oil prices in 2016 -- one that may, in fact, stretch into the 2020s and beyond. Given the centrality of oil (and oil revenues) in the global power equation, this is bound to translate into a profound shakeup in the political order, with petroleum-producing states from Saudi Arabia to Russia losing both prominence and geopolitical clout. ...

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists attacked the Unites States. They hijacked four airplanes in mid-flight. The terrorists flew two of the planes into two skyscrapers at the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact caused the buildings to catch fire and collapse. Another plane destroyed part of the Pentagon (the U.S. military headquarters) in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Officials believe that the terrorists on that plane intended to destroy either the White House or the U.S. Capitol. Passengers on the plane fought the terrorists and prevented them from reaching their goal. In all, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks.

The report determined that the stated Chinese nuclear arsenal is understated and as many as 3,000 nuclear warheads may be stored in the underground tunnel network.
The Vietnam War

The Vietnam War

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides--Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. Ten years in the making, the series includes rarely seen and digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations.

I'm looking for sponsors to financially help with this site.  If you might be interested please send me a message using the Contact form.


I am one of those "once" middle class, over 60, over educated, under-employed, semi retired, soon to be poor workers, that everyone is talking about. 
But I have a modest standard of living so I plan to give all extra donation, beyond my immediate needs, to several of my favorite charities.
