Google, your data suppression methods are obvious, easily recorded, abysmally inept and generally pathetic.

The simple fact that you actively engage in suppressing this and other alternative news sites means we have won and TRUTH will prevail in the end.

trump44.jpg image Everyone in Trumpworld Knows He’s an Idiot Michelle Goldberg via gail, Friday, Jan 5 2018, 6:36pm
The following recent article from the New York Times proves beyond doubt that the USA is a dysfunctional State. Indeed the title highlights what the ENTIRE WORLD already knows, YET, the powers that be in the USA are unable to oust a completely destructive, to himself and the nation, buffoon, cognitively impaired president -- and that is the point. Provisions exist for the removal of an idiot president BUT Congress and the administration are unwilling to make the necessary moves. Why? Simply due to the fact that the NATION itself is reflected in the president, it is DYSFUNCTIONAL and unraveling as I write. Cognitively impaired Trump singlehandedly has done more to harm the USA than any other American in the history of the nation, and when you consider bumbling Bush and the evil Cheney administration that's a BIG call.

The following article (an informative read) though detailed, points to a symptomatic appraisal of something much larger in scope, the fall of a self-styled imperial power; and fall it must, not least due to the reasons outlined in the article, a thoroughly flawed, inept and incompetent ELECTED leader.

text The Net’s Good Ol' Boys: Hacking the Arpanet Geoff Dutton via claire, Thursday, Jan 4 2018, 5:17am
It’s hard to imagine now, but there was a time before the Internet, a time when computers took up more space than the acolytes who tended to their needs. In the 70s I was one such boffin, a postgrad hacking away in a university R&D lab. Computers then were still quite dear, and so we made do with terminals that sucked electrons from the teat of a minicomputer several blocks away through fiber cable.

text Social Media Madness: the Russiagate Fantasy Norman Solomon via shirl, Thursday, Jan 4 2018, 1:48am
For several months we’ve been hearing a crescendo of outcries that Russia used social media to sway the 2016 presidential election. The claim has now been debunked by an unlikely source — one of the most Russiagate-frenzied big media outlets in the United States, the Washington Post.

text We Can BUT We Won’t! daniel, Thursday, Jan 4 2018, 12:57am
It amuses me greatly to read various articles on how we could make 2018 a good year, not the usual progression into a nihilistic future driven by a tiny minority of ultra-wealthy pathological and avaricious types in society that profit from perpetual war, destruction and chaos. Well, of course we can, or could, to be grammatically correct, but that also applies to every new year since the 21st century began and just take a good look at those disastrous 17 years. So, always the realist, fat chance that appalling trend would change in 2018, though it could, it could change anytime BUT it won’t. Why?

text 2018 a Grim Year from Any Perspective Abdel Bari Atwan via shirl, Tuesday, Jan 2 2018, 9:56pm
With the US now adopting insularity and insanity as its main credos, the international economic and political balance is sure to shift dramatically in 2018; China is rightfully subverting the petro-dollar, as like many other nations affected, the greenback has been used to blackmail and impose sanctions on other sovereign, non-compliant (to Washington's dictates) nations. Moreover, the USA is an undisguised military nation hell bent on perpetual war as that is the only foreign policy it knows, which is the focus of the following article. The future promises anything but peace, harmony and stability for the entire world.

As usual we see in the sensationalist section of the mass media that they have purportedly found Noah’s Ark for the umpteen time -- LOL -- now considering that Jonah lived in a whale, probably with en-suite, one can only wonder at imbecilic religionists that have replaced personal responsibility for their lives with some idiot fantasy, or perverse myth at best.

text Coherence and Incoherence jake, Sunday, Dec 31 2017, 3:09am
It is easy to denounce Trump and the morons that continue to support him in view of his policies that clearly favour elite interests and create evermore hardships for the dispossessed white American working class that stupidly continue to support Trump. Though Trump is smart enough to throw off on the ‘other’ as the problem, such as illegal immigrants, Muslims, foreigners in general, racism is always a handy political card to play, as humans by nature are tribal.

text US Prepares for yet Another Illegal Proxy War in Syria Alex Gorka via gail, Saturday, Dec 30 2017, 7:31pm
After the Islamic State proxy fighting group was roundly defeated in Syria by Russia and its allies, the USA illegitimately and ILLEGALLY continues to occupy Syria and arm, train and supply the Kurdish YPG separatist group with modern weaponry to re-ignite the conflict. The US is doing all this in plain sight of other nations and so one can only wonder why the rest of the world sits back idly and allows the needless killing and destabilisation to continue. America's current subversive actions are totally illegal as is its continuing occupation of Syria, so WHY are other nations doing nothing to end the crisis, particularly Russia and China? It stinks as it’s all being done OVERTLY without the least regard for international laws and conventions.

text The Uselessness of the ‘ME’ Generations stella, Saturday, Dec 30 2017, 12:40am
It should be no surprise that spoilt rotten generations, focused primarily on themselves, cannot establish real social relationships, that is, talking and interacting with others outside familiar niches.

American consumer Christ -- Banksy image What Christmas Means Chris Hedges via jane, Monday, Dec 25 2017, 2:59am
In the early 1980s I was in a refugee camp for Guatemalans who had fled the war into Honduras. It was a cold, dreary winter afternoon. The peasant farmers and their families, living in filth and mud, were decorating their tents with strips of colored paper. That night, they said, they would celebrate the flight of Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus to Egypt to escape the slaughter of the children of Bethlehem ordered by Herod. The celebration is known as the Day of the Holy Innocents. (story and 1 image)
