Major Win as U.S. Senate Blocks TPP Fast Track Bill

Oppo­nents of sprawl­ing and secre­tive inter­na­tion­al agree­ments won a sig­nif­i­cant vic­to­ry today when U.S. Sen­a­tors vot­ed to block the advance­ment of its Fast Track trade bill.

Motels Sharing “Daily Guest List with Police” and Aiding Warrant Checks on Every Guest

Instead, it is appar­ent­ly every­day data shar­ing on every guest. It is a trou­bling pri­­vate-pub­­lic over­lap where motel and hotel clerks are sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly shar­ing “do not rent” lists […]

Obama, Hillary/Bill, Bush, “income inequality and violence”

The big lie “There are lots of ways to destroy com­mu­ni­ties. One of the most suc­cess­ful is: take jobs away. Can­cel jobs. Then, cov­er this plot with lies about pover­ty and inequal­i­ty. Set race and against race: tap into human feel­ings and the mind in their vul­ner­a­ble areas—where hatred and ran­cor can be stim­u­lat­ed. Thus, […]
