I have this uppity series of books I want to read. The current one is Illiberal reformers: Race Eugenics and American Economics in the Progressive Era by Thomas Leonard. It promises to be quite good. But after reading this stuff for a while I just can’t stand it anymore. I then retreat to a Louie L’Amour or Luke Short western. Good stuff! But I am yearning for another escape and for me that is science fiction.
Years ago I read Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series. Foundation, Foundation and Empire, Second Foundation. This series was started in 1951. Asimov’s Robot series was started in the early forties.
I am not particularly well read in science fiction but I know what I like. Asimov and Bradbury. A friend has suggested I investigate the River World series. That may be next.
The original Foundation series has been expanded upon both by Asimov and others. You can do a Wiki search for the details. For some reason I have decided to read the entire (Asimov written) Foundation series, then the Robot series.
In a nutshell the Foundation plot revolves around a galactic empire that is deteriorating (deterioration of infrastructure in particular!). The Hari Seldon character has started a chain of events that will shorten the inevitable collapse into barbarity from ten thousand to one thousand years. Seldon is a psychohistorian. A predictor of the future based on mathematics. Read the rest of this entry »

Fidel Castro is dead. Neocons warmongers are celebrating, Hollywood’s socialist half wits are mourning, Cubans may finally get a chance to breathe.
Brother Raul has been in charge for a while now and one of the few constructive things Obama has done is work with Raul to open up Cuba to the US economy. When Raul joins Fidel the reformation may take off if the US prez permits.
The enduring legacy of Cuba and Castro, that no one will discuss, is that embargos do not work. The Iraq embargo resulted in untold suffering, little food, no medicine and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children. The Korean embargo has famously resulted in the citizenry consuming tree bark for the lack of real food. The ultimate vegan experience. Read the rest of this entry »

The Washington Post has a story by a mysterious, dare I say fake, organization PropOrNot that lists various organizations that are supposedly Russia’s useful idiots.
The group’s list of Russian disinformation outlets includes WikiLeaks and the Drudge Report, as well as Clinton-critical left-wing websites such as Truthout, Black Agenda Report, Truthdig and Naked Capitalism, as well as libertarian venues such as Antiwar.com and the Ron Paul Institute.
Ron Paul Institute!!!
The rogue’s gallery includes blogs and news sites that conflict with the presstitute main stream media. Sites that espouse truth and anti-war ‘isolationism’. Read the rest of this entry »

The last post described the all too common pot/kettle situation with the press. Those screaming ‘fake news’ are the ones causing the problem.
Facebook feigns shock all the while giving China custom censorship tools in exchange for access. Censored news is fake news no matter what weasel words are used to justify it.
Now we learn:
Facebook has restricted content in other countries before, such as Pakistan, Russia and Turkey, in keeping with the typical practice of American internet companies that generally comply with government requests to block certain content after it is posted.
But the new feature takes that a step further by preventing content from appearing in feeds in China in the first place. Read the rest of this entry »

There is something trage-comic about Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and his campaign against ‘fake’ news.
This is the same Zuckerberg that advocates the Soros globalist agenda. The same Zuckerberg caught on an open mike assuring Angela Merkel he would filter anti-immigration news from German Facebook users.
This the same Facebook that was financed by CIA front company In-Q-Tel. Read the rest of this entry »

Like the evil clown “IT”, just when you think it is dead.
Like the superbug that slithers from a cauldron of FDA approved drugs.
Like the armor-plated insect that crawls from the Hiroshima rubble.
Take equal parts money hungry/power mad/pathological lies/runoff from a reign of Yugoslav, Middle East, African terror, add a dash of stolen Whitehouse silverware and a heaping spoonful of post-election anger, cover with a stained blue cloth.
Let the shell harden then inject into the capitol dome like a laughing door gunner injects lead into a Reuters reporter then…but wait!
The mutant is already emerging and it is looking right at you, HERE IT COMES! It’s Read the rest of this entry »

The main stream media pundits are reading too much of their own stuff. They are in another dimension.
The media blew it. Their coverage was hugely biased in favor the neocon warparty machine candidate. They ignored or couldn’t grasp the notion of why anyone but ‘racists’ would vote for Trump.
Now that the nation’s preference has been made plain, the media has to come up with an explanation of why the election result did not match their bad prediction.
WaPo, NTY, major TV news mills all found the answer. The proletariat is too dumb to understand the truth as the media portrays it. A proliferation of ignorant deplorables messed things up. Read the rest of this entry »

(ANTIMEDIA) Months before President George W. Bush’s speech on September 11, 2002, the New York Times reported at the time, White House officials confirmed the Bush administration had already been “[planning its Iraq strategy] long before President Bush’s vacation in Texas” in August of that same year.
The strategy was to persuade the public and Congress that the United States and its allies should confront the “threat from Saddam Hussein.”
The now infamous 9/11 anniversary speech
— and the speech
before the United Nations following the anniversary remarks — both stressed the importance of “[ridding] the world of terror.
” But before speaking to the United Nations, Bush made the clearest case for war.
Claiming “our principles and our security are challenged today by outlaw groups and regimes that accept no law of morality and have no limit to their violent ambitions,” Bush presented his case against Iraq, claiming Hussein had only “contempt for the United Nations … [claiming] it had no biological weapons. ”
Making the case that Iraq had a clandestine “weapons program … producing tens of thousands of litres of anthrax and other deadly biological agents for use with Scud warheads, aerial bombs and aircraft spray tanks,” Bush and his administration sold the invasion of Iraq with lies.

Why did Comey flip on Hillary emails? If you believe the media it is because his people feel betrayed and are resigning right and left.
FIB FBI integrity is a hard argument to buy. This is the same bunch that invents terror plots and entraps half-wits into taking the blame just so the FIB can look like they are accomplishing something.
Maybe there are swans that look and sound like ducks.
Comey is an operator, a Clinton apparatchik. Why bite the hand? Perhaps larger forces are at work. Read the rest of this entry »

…her intellect, cumulative experience and long record of public service make her a better choice than Republican nominee Donald Trump by a long shot.
..Clinton has built a breadth of experience and a record of leadership that equips her to lead the nation through the tricky currents and perilous rapids of these turbulent times.
That record includes an enduring dedication to the welfare of children, her stature as a global role model for and champion of women, and crucial experience as a leader of the nation’s foreign policy apparatus.
This sounds great except nowhere does the ET-N actually mention any accomplishments.
Regarding women and children-Clinton acknowledges her child welfare model was Margaret Sanger, the inspiration for planned parenthood. Sanger like Hillary was a progressive, one of the originals. Being true to Progressives of the time Sanger was a eugenicist. Deplorables such as those of color, lacking in skills and or “feeble-minded”, as determined by the government, should be sterilized, not permitted to reproduce. If per chance a deplorable should find themselves with child there was always abortion.
her stature as a global role model for and champion of women…Iraq WAS a relatively good place for a Muslim woman as is Iran. Saudi Arabia whom she loves and supports (and in turn is supported) not so much.
Hillary’s foreign policy accomplishments are her number two defining quality (number one described below). Read the rest of this entry »
