Democrat. Republican. When it comes to this collusion story, there’s no real difference.
Almost exactly a year ago, just as the "Russia hacked the election!" delirium was taking shape, I pooh-poohed the idea that "Russiagate" (as it has come to be known) would persist for very long. Once the Trump administration started plowing ahead with its agenda, I argued, the Dems would toss Hillary aside and move on with politics as usual.
Russiagate fading away as Democrats come to terms with the 2016 election? Really, James?
Now I've made some inaccurate predictions before (OK, a lot of inaccurate predictions), but that one takes the cake in terms of how wrong I ended up being.
If you want a demonstration of this point, just type "russia collusion" or "russia interference" into your search engine of choice and feast on the millions and millions of nothingburgers that have been produced this past year chasing this non-story. It would almost be comical how stupid these stories were if it wasn't for the fact that they have real world consequences.
Remember when the evil Russkies hacked the Vermont electrical grid Read more
How could it possibly have taken so long for such an obvious and undeniable truth—that sugar is the key culprit in a range of diseases and disorders—to be acknowledged?
For 21 trillion to be missing it had to come from somewhere. Amen. 21 trillion isn’t chicken feed. That’s more than our entire US GDP for a year. So where did it come from, to go missing? Ahh, that’s the creepy part folks.
What matters is that the world has transitioned from a pre-World Wide Web economy to a World Wide Web economy, and we are still dealing with the ramifications of that.
We’re still leaning long, but keeping position size a bit lower than normal. So far it’s been working for us nicely, and I figure it should continue for a while. But as we get closer to the December rate hike from the Fed’s, I think there’s going to be a bit of nervousness out there, and that could shake some trees.
There are many questions surrounding the development of this technology that poses an existential threat to humanity, but most people are too busy worrying about whether computers can have a soul to address these concerns.
In history, many “things” have been labeled money. Shells, tree bark, stones, plants, etc. But all of them lost their attractiveness and people turned back to gold and silver. Will the crypto currencies likewise eventually be shunned for something more 3 dimensional like the metals again? Time will tell.
So it is extremely unlikely that this purge will be the end of this particularly turbulent chapter in the history of the House of Saud. It may just be the beginning.
...it's unlikely we're going to get a single bombshell on the Kennedy case from these documents, but there still may be nuggets worth digging up here, new ways of gaining perspective on deep state events that could serve as a spark for a future generation of would-be researchers.
The greatest trick the banksters and their corporate cronies have ever pulled is to convince you that you are weak and powerless without their governmental puppets and regulatory lapdogs to (pretend to) protect you. That is a lie. The people have always held that power in their own hands.
...unlike so many of the more shallow environmentalists, I completely understand the absolute RAPING of nature that digging for all these minerals is causing. Folks, they don’t show this stuff much, but the mining operations going on around the globe in the hunt for these exotic minerals is destroying a lot of property.
... already it seems clear that President Xi is indeed tightening his grip on control of the Party (and thus the country), and that Xi is continuing with his vision of making China into a world superpower in the coming decades.
Carbon taxes and carbon trading have proven to be a hard sell for an increasingly wary public, but with the Paris Agreement of 2015 the world saw the biggest step yet toward this technocratic future of energy control and carbon rationing.
This is supposedly “not a gun guy” and yet ONLY a gun guy would know what they are, where to get one and how to install it. Something stinks with this.
...the blockchain can be used to create digital currencies that represent the very vision of a totalitarian tyrant’s wildest wet dream.
