THE GENESIS OF THE RUSSIAN/TRUMP COLLUSION CASE????

Did you ever seen the movie “My Cousin Vinny”? Of course you did.  And I have little doubt you remember that partly funny/partly dark scene where Vinny, played wonderfully by Joe Pesci, humiliates his significant other – Marissa Tomei in her academy award-winning performance, by ridiculing the pictures she took. Remember what sent her over the edge (pardon the...

THE NETWORK NEWS NON-COVERAGE OF IRAN

I just checked the websites for CBS, NBC and ABC “news”. Not one of them is treating Iran as the major story it is.  And not one of them is talking about this as an exponentially growing revolutionary movement. No, it’s just some protests about rising food prices and governmental corruption that President Trump is tweeting about. In other words, it is being given the same...

Does she have a point?  Well, let’s see. Here, in its entirety, is what Mr. Krugman wrote the day after Mr. Trump was elected President (the bold...

THE IRAN PROTESTS: WHAT A DIFFERENCE AN ADMINISTRATION MAKES

In 2009, the first year of the Obama administration, street protests erupted in Iran.  People took to the streets demanding more freedom/less fundamentalist religous oppression. The newly Obama administration’s reaction, as the protests grew?  We don’t get involved in the affairs of other countries, we don’t want the United States “imprint” on what they do.  In...

RACIAL IDIOCY AT ITS FINEST

Did you know that farmer’s markets are racist entities? “White spaces”? I’ll bet you didn’t know that.  I sure didn’t.  I’ve never known any farmer’s market I’ve patronized to favor or exclude customers based on their race. But two San Diego State professors, apparently, have data that put my lifetime of experience to shame. Excerpted from...

ASKING FOR IT….AND GETTING IT

When will Donald Trump learn that he is his own worst enemy? Mr. Trump, from the luxury and warmth of Mar-a-Lago, his Florida country club/golf course, was obtuse enough to post this tweet to the rest of the world: Donald J. Trump   ✔@realDonaldTrump   In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming...

WHAT IS “THE DEEP STATE” HIDING?

Is there truly a “deep state”, comprised of ideologues, leftovers from the Obama administration, actively trying to subvert the current one? Before answering, please read the opening paragraphs from Chuck Ross’s article at dailycaller.com: House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes is accusing the Justice Department and FBI of “intransigence” for ignoring a subpoena...
