Hear! Hear!

Trump on Europe:
What the mainstream media didn't tell ....

" .. Senior European politicians and the markets are horrified, which should be good news for everyone. Europe will maybe get the chance to escape the US political and economic embrace, European nations maybe will learn to stand on their own feet and decide their fate by themselves .. "
[credits]

As the saying goes 'something good always accompanies the bad' this may be the starting point of a revival of the idea of a "United Europe". If people realize that the right wing populists don't have their best in mind - they just want the public office because of the immediate monetary reward and the ever lasting pensions ....

There is an alternative long on it's way, it's called DIEM 25

THEY DO IT ...!

Haven't we all thought about this before, dismissed our doubts and trusted that at least the police will behave according to the law?

Now there is evidence that our wildest dreams were nothing - compared to what actually happens:

" .. Police officers across the country are using confidential law-enforcement databases to spy and acquire information on “romantic partners, business associates, neighbors, journalists and others for reasons that have nothing to do with daily police work,” an investigation by The Associated Press revealed.

“In the most egregious cases,” AP says, “officers have used information to stalk or harass, or have tampered with or sold records they obtained .. "

[source]

"Nothing to hide" - that was the past, now one can't be sure about any data gathered by the big corporations.

Apple gives away whatever they have on their customers to law enforcement, the whole five nine yards, not just what police are asking for .... it's about time people educate themselves about personal privacy stolen wherever big chunks of data are available.

New text for an old song

Barbara Streisand sang this at a performance, and brought the house down. Lyrics to 'Send in the Clowns'
=> youtu.be

Verse-1

Is he that rich?
Maybe he's poor?
' Til he reveals his returns
Who knows for sure?
Who needs this clown?

Verse -2

Something's amiss
I don't approve
If he where running the free world
Where would we move?
Name me a town?
Just who is this clown?

Bridge -1

And when we thought we'd
Heard it all
Huffing and puffing about
His big fancy wall...
Making his entrance on stage...
He just shoots from the hip
He's full of bull__
He's lost his grip!

Verse -3

And if by chance
He gets to heaven
Even up there he'll declare
Chapter eleven!
Who'd elect this clown?
This sad vulger clown...
"You're fired " you clown!

Bridge -2

Hillary's kind...
Smart that is clear!
While she's giving us hope...
He is selling us fear!
Look how he changes his
Views every time that he speaks...
It's lie after lie
Can't take eight more weeks!

Verse -4

This is no farce...
Maybe he's broke?
Is this " The Art of His Deal "...
Or some awful joke?
You've got to admit...
This silly half-wit...
Is so full of_!


OK, folks, I don't like the lines on Hillary but I'll give Ms. Streisand an A+ for the rest of it ....

Clinton spoke

"Hillary 'the Hawk' Clinton Touts American Exceptionalism"
[By: Danielle Ryan]

" .. Clinton praised her country in no uncertain terms as the “last, best hope of earth” — the “great, unselfish, compassionate country” with an “unparalleled ability to be a force for peace” in the world .. "
Reading this I thought "There we go - this is proof of multiple parallel realities!" - because what I know about the country compares more to what D. Ryan states:

"The EURO" by Joseph E. Stiglitz

A new book is out and of course there's a book review:
“The Euro: How a Common Currency Threatens the Future of Europe”

The author is a good friend of Yanis Varoufakis - I assume it wasn't know to the reviewer because it's not mentioned. Hence nobody is surprised to learn that the fiscal policies within the EU differ widely - and mostly to the disadvantage of the southern states of the EU.

I agree, the reviewer does not.

Never mind the strange language ....

.... in the beginning.
It gets better as the article commences:

The Maya: Who Woulda Thunk it?

I highly recommend this because it's a stunning review of what the MAYA were capable of while we Europeans still hadn't invented the "0" [zero] ....

PRO LIFE: What you intend(-ed) (?) is NOT what you get


 

The report issued by the "Journal Obstetrics and Gynecology“ states: " .. in the absence of war, natural disaster, or severe economic upheaval .. " these numbers are difficult to explain. Only to go on to talk about how the Texas legislature might have a not so small part in those rising numbers:
The state legislature cut $73.6m from the state’s family planning budget of $111.5m. The two-thirds cut forced more than 80 family planning clinics to shut down across the state. In those years where the number of patients treated was cut in half the number of " .. free birth control, cancer screenings and well-woman exams .. " dropped to half of what it used to be before that cut.

I'm inclined to add: If these people - religious or not - who propagate what they call "Pro Life Actions" were reasonable and self-critical, would open their eyes to reality .... they would bashfully turn back home, cry about lost lives and be ashamed for what they have done.

Unbalanced "voting power"

" .. (it) gives a Wyoming resident 65 times the voting power of a California resident .. "

" .. (it) gives a Wyoming resident 65 times the voting power of a California resident .. " - seems to me this is not the only "imbalance" of the US voting/election system ....

Have a look at the following story telling you the facts on how big corporations try to dry out the supply of the most needed items for daily care Venezuela: Seized Factory Was Well Stocked but Wasn't Producing in order to discredit the Gouvernment's ability to sufficiently care for their subjects. 
 

" .. The Kimberly Clark Corporation halted operations alleging that they lacked the raw materials to make their products but their warehouses were found to be full .. "
 
 
One can be sure that Venezuela is not the only country in this area of the world where such perfidiousness is used to change the political mood to install a more favourable & U.S. friendly environment.

What you don't read in your daily newspaper ....

.... and don't see on TV either.

Have you ever wondered how little information you get about all of Central & Latin America in the general news? Or, if there is a news piece, it almost always makes you think
" .. these leftist extremist aren't able to rule a country in a decent and beneficial way .. "
 
 
Think again, dear reader, it's the political influence - direct or covert - that WANTS YOU to think exactly this way.
 
 

" .. Daily negative coverage in Western media reports invariably attack and blame the Venezuelan government for the country's political and economic crisis. Similar coverage is applied to the governments of Evo Morales in Bolivia, Rafael Correa in Ecuador, Cuba's revolutionary government led by Raul Castro and also to Nicaragua's Sandinista government led by Daniel Ortega.
By contrast, the permanent economic sabotage, the attacks on democratic process and the cynical promotion of violence by the dysfunctional Venezuelan opposition gets a free pass. Likewise, U.S. and European news media have virtually nothing to report about Argentina's abrupt plunge into crisis with 40 percent inflation and a dramatic increase in poverty after barely six months of Mauricio Macri's corruption tainted [right leaning! - my interjection] government. Nor has coverage of the chronic complicity of the Mexican government in covering up the disappearance of the 43 Ayotzinapa students or the mass murder of striking teachers in Oaxaca matched the hysteria applied by Western media to Venezuela over bogus human rights concerns .. "
