Survey: Just A Quarter Of Americans Can Name All 3 Branches Of Government

A sizable portion of the American public seems to show little interest in the fabric of the country’s government and history, a new survey finds. Researchers at the Annenberg Public Policy Center (APPC) surveyed over 1,000 American adults, finding a shocking lack of knowledge as it pertains to U.S. politics among the general populace.

Steelers' Alejandro Villanueva on standing for anthem: 'I made my teammates look bad'

It was a mistake he says. Looks like Villanueva just woosed out.

Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger and the only Pittsburgh Steeler seen standing during the national anthem on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, told reporters he “unintentionally” threw his teammates under the bus.

In a news conference on Monday, Villanueva said it was never part of the plan to be out on the field alone and that he accidentally ran too far, according to CBS Pittsburgh.

How to end the North Korea problem

Here’s how to solve the seven-decade old crisis: pull all U.S. troops out of North Korea; end all military exercises on the North Korean border; encourage direct talks between the North and South and offer to host or observe them with an international delegation including the Russians and Chinese, which are after all Korea’s neighbors. The schoolyard insults back and forth between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un are not funny. They are in fact an insult to all of the rest of us!

MSM: Trump and the National Anthem are both relics of white supremacy

So perhaps the most important conversation the nation ought to have isn’t about whether the nation has a racist past (it does), but about how we can reverse a bloody present and future for the disadvantaged people living in its poorest (and most heavily Democrat controlled) neighborhoods. None of those 508 dead people in Chicago would have been saved if the nation scrapped the National Anthem altogether. Though, some of them may have been saved if we’d scrapped the predatory political machines running their neighborhoods into the ground for so long.

Landfills In Puerto Rico And The Virgin Islands Are Already An Environmental Mess. Hurricanes Just Made These Failing Piles Of Garbage Worse.

Now environmental experts are worried about a lesser-known casualty of the storm: more than 30 overflowing landfills on these islands that were posing environmental hazards even before the catastrophe hit.

The successive storms, they say, could cause trash landslides and increase the possibility that toxic liquids are leaching into the soil.

“Everything you can imagine is in these landfills — old cars, asbestos brake liners, petroleum, bottles, cans, yard waste,” Judith Enck, the former EPA administrator who oversaw the agency’s work in Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands, told BuzzFeed News.

British Virgin Islands brave two storms in two weeks: 'Maria destroyed most of what was left'

“Irma did a lot of damage but, for me, Maria finished the job,” said Karon Brown, 29, a resident of Great Mountain on the island of Tortola.

“We already had flooding inside the house and lost most of our possessions in Irma. Before Maria came, we boarded the house up and tried to secure what remained. But Maria just ripped it all off – damaged the building more and destroyed most of what was left.”

Mitt Romney calls on Congress to ‘put differences aside,’ prioritize Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands ‘rescue’

In a tweet Monday afternoon, the former Massachusetts governor called on political leaders in Washington, D.C., to set aside political difference to “rescue” Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The two U.S. territories — home to a combined 3.5 million American citizens — have been devastated this month by Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

...

Puerto Rico’s nonvoting representative in Congress, Jenniffer Gonzalez, said Sunday that the Caribbean island has been set back “nearly 20-30 years” by Maria, which made landfall on the territory last week as a Category 4 storm. Puerto Rico suffered unprecedented damage to its power grid and is expected to go weeks or months before it regains electricity. The New York Times reports that Maria destroyed 80 percent of the island’s crop value. Water and food is reportedly limited.

“There will be no food in Puerto Rico,” one farmer told the Times. “There is no more agriculture in Puerto Rico. And there won’t be any for a year or longer.”

Why Trump's Foreign Policy May Result in 25 'Chernobyls' in Asia-Pacific

The US' foreign policy may lead to a nuclear nightmare in Asia Pacific, compared to which the Fukushima disaster is a "firecracker," an expert told Sputnik, adding that in his UN speech Donald Trump had repeatedly contradicted himself by calling upon nations to maintain their sovereignty while at the same time threatening to destroy North Korea.

US President Donald Trump's threat to "totally destroy" North Korea in case the US is "forced to defend itself or its allies" means a potential atomic Armageddon for the Korean Peninsula, Konstantin Sivkov, a Russian military analyst and president of the Academy for Geopolitical Problems, told Sputnik China.

NATO's Dragon-17 Drills: 'Dangerous Dreamers Dreaming of Real War With Russia'

Some 17,500 troops and 3,500 vehicles kicked off five days of drilling in Poland on Monday, the exercise coming on the heels of the Russian-Belarusian Zapad-2017 drills, which Polish officials and media described as preparations for an invasion of Europe. Speaking to Sputnik, political analyst Konrad Rekas said the hypocrisy was delicious.
The NATO drills, whose active phase runs until Friday, involve troops from Poland and NATO allies the US, Lithuania, Latvia, the UK, Germany, Slovakia, Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, as well as NATO hopefuls Georgia and Ukraine. Ahead of the exercises, Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz said the drills would carry a "very aggressive" character, and involve 122,000 troops, rather than the aforementioned 17,500.

After the ISIS Caliphate, Rojava

While the Syrian Arab Army, the Russian aviation and Hezbollah are preparing to finish off Daesh, the Pentagon is planning a new war against Syria, this time with Kurdish troops. Just as the mission of the Caliphate was to create a Sunnistan straddling Iraq and Syria, so the mission of “Rojava” is to create a Kurdistan straddling the two states, as the Pentagon has been publicly stating for the last four years.

According to US grand strategy, as defined by Admiral Cebrowski in 2001, and published in 2004 by his assistant Thomas Barnett, all of the Greater Middle East must be destroyed except for Israël, Jordan and Lebanon.

Consequently, the imminent victory against Daesh will change nothing of the Pentagon’s intentions.

Donald Trump has composed his administration of ex-senior civil servants from the Obama administration, a number of opportunistic politicians, many improvised representatives, and very very few trustworthy personalities.

Trump at War with Dissent

Trump continues finding ways to disgrace himself, the latest episode Friday evening, criticizing legitimate dissent.

It’s the highest form of patriotism, the comment attributed to Thomas Jefferson, whether or not he actually said it.

In 1961, The Use of Force in International Affairs publication used the phrase, asking

“(i)f what your country is doing seems to you practically and morally wrong, is dissent the highest form of patriotism?”

During the height of the Vietnam war in 1969, New York Mayor John Lindsey said

“(w)e cannot rest content with the charge from Washington that…peaceful protest(s) (are) unpatriotic…The fact is that this dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”

The late Howard Zinn and other distinguished figures said the same thing in similar or identical language.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacivist activist, I dissent from the OUSSA's official narrative, engineered to continue to legitimize the wars it fights; to continue the outsourcing of American jobs; and continue its general attitude of bullying, both at home and around the world.

I do it peacefully, never advocate violence, and always do my best to speak the truth.

While I would probably not kneel during the playing of the national anthem (at 68, I'd probably need a tractor to pull me up to vertical again!), I sincerely believe that individual professional athletes do have the right to dissent peacefully in this manner.

President Trump should not have invested at all in this argument, as he has bigger fish to fry, both domestically, and internationally right now; this is a major distraction from the real issues he is confronting.

In fact, it almost reminds me of the "missing Chandra Levey" case, featuring Congressman Gary Condit as the alleged bad guy, in the summer of 2001, right before 9/11.

So I have to wonder; from just what, please, is the OUSSA trying to distract us at this moment?!?

New Research Links Flint Water Crisis to ‘Horrifyingly Large’ Spike in Fetal Death Rates

Shedding new light on the human costs of the ongoing Flint water crisis—as well as underscoring the need for regulatory oversight—a new working paper links the city’s now infamous switch from the Detroit system to the Flint River as a water source with a decrease in fertility rates and a spike in fetal death rates.

The paper (pdf) from researchers from the University of Kansas and West Virginia University is the first to look at lead-poisoned water’s impact on fertility and birth outcomes. It compares birth and fetal death rates, which refers to miscarriages after 20 weeks of gestation, in Flint with those in other Michigan cities from 2008 to 2015—before and after the 2014 water switch.

Following the change in the water source, women in Flint aged 15-49 had a general fertility rate (GFR) decease of 12 percent. Fetal death rates for the group increased by 58 percent—a magnitude the researchers describe as “horrifyingly large.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every single city, county, and state official who signed off on this switch in water resources, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, tried, and convicted , and thrown into jail.

People should not be allowed to do this to any community in this country, period, end of discussion!!!!

US Provides Military Assistance to 73 Percent of World's Dictatorships

Today, of course, we are told that we should support insurgents in Syria because Bashar al-Assad is an evil dictator, and we must repeatedly rattle our sabers at North Korea's Kim Jong-un and Russia's Vladimir Putin because they, too, are evil dictators.

This is part of the larger, usually unquestioned mainstream corporate media narrative that the US leads the "Western democracies" in a global struggle to combat terrorism and totalitarianism and promote democracy.

I set out to answer a simple question: Is it true? Does the US government actually oppose dictatorships and champion democracy around the world, as we are repeatedly told?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not only is the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of America supporting the world's dictators; they are also committing war crimes, for example, with the OUSSA aiding and abetting Saudi genocide in Yemen.

I don't know about the rest of you; however, I am very morally uncomfortable being a citizen of a country which routinely indulges in war crimes with impunity, because the OUSSA can get away with these kinds of actions.

I would love for Mike and I to become citizens of a country which does not participate in these immoral and unethincal acts; somewhere picturesque, perhaps, like the Municipality of Andorra; unfortunately we are both too broke, and too old, to make this happen.

What the Kurdish Referendum Means for the Future of Iraq

The referendum on independence for the Kurdish controlled territory, due to take place on 25 September, is the latest event billed as threatening the stability of Iraq and a good chunk of the Middle East. Seldom has a democratic poll in such a small place been so universally denounced by so many international powers, including the US, UK, Germany and France.

A White House statement emphasises “to the leaders of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) that the referendum is distracting from efforts to defeat Isis and stabilise the liberated areas. Holding the referendum in disputed areas is particularly provocative and destabilising.”

Regional powers like Turkey and Iran have likewise demanded that the referendum be cancelled and threatened retaliation if it is not. In Baghdad, the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has denounced it and the Supreme Court ruled that it was “unconstitutional”. But for all the sound and fury, it looks as if the vote is going ahead.

Death of Russian general in Syria is result of US hypocrisy – Moscow

The death of Russian Lieutenant-General Valery Asapov in Syria is the price Russia was forced to pay for hypocritical US policy, according to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov.

“The death of the Russian commander is the price paid with blood for the hypocrisy of American policy in Syria," Ryabkov said on Monday.

General Asapov was serving as one of Russia’s military advisers in Syria. On Sunday, the Russian Defense Ministry said he was fatally wounded by an exploding shell in a sudden mortar attack by IS terrorists.

The deputy minister said Moscow wants Washington’s statements on fighting terrorism not to be at odds with its actions on the ground.

Meanwhile, the Russian and US militaries maintain “intensive” contacts at different levels, Ryabkov said.

On Sunday, the Russian Ministry of Defense published aerial images which they say show US Army special forces equipment located north of the Syrian town of Deir ez-Zor, where IS militants are deployed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sensing that, in spite of all the intensive contacts between Russian and US military reps, those in the Bowels of Power in the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika may well find an "excuse" for engaging with the Russians directly in Syria, in order not to appear to be losing yet another military misadventure in the Middle East.

I hope to heck I am absolutely wrong on this; but looking at the messes the US has made of Afghanistan; Somalia; Iraq; and Libya, one can understand why the US government doesn't want the optics of the US attempt at "regime change" in Damascus to appear as another epic fail to the world.

Trump Accuses Iran of Cooperation with North Korea After Missile Test Launch

US President Donald Trump said on Sunday that Iran was cooperating with Pyongyang following the latest Tehran's ballistic missile test.

"Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel. They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!" Trump posted on Twitter.

On Saturday, Iranian media reported that the country had successfully carried out the test launch of a new ballistic missile, dubbed Khorramshahr, with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,242 miles).

The new Iranian long range missile Khoramshahr (front) is displayed during the annual military parade marking the anniversary of the outbreak of its devastating 1980-1988 war with Saddam Hussein's Iraq, on September 22,2017 in

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, please think for a moment; if you were Iran's President Rouhani, and listening to American, Israeli, and Saudi authorities all screaming in unison about regime change in Tehran, would you not be wanting to be creating, and manufacturing, the best, and longest-range missiles your scientists could create?!?

Of course you would!!

And sir, where is your proof that North Korea is assisting Iran in its missile program?!? Wouldn't the situation actually be the converse, with Iran assisting North Korea, because North Korea's guidance and staging of their missiles needs much to be desired before they can actually target something successfully?!?

And please remember: As of October 17th, 2014, irandaily.com carried the following comment:

Iran argues that it has rejected nuclear weapons as incompatible with Islam and cites a fatwa of Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei as proof. American and European officials remain skeptical, however, that the issue is really governed by Shia Islamic principles. They have relied instead on murky intelligence that has never been confirmed about an alleged covert Iranian nuclear weapons program.

But the key to understanding Iran's policy toward nuclear weapons lies in a historical episode during its eight-year war with Iraq. The story, told in full for the first time here, explains why Iran never retaliated against Iraq's chemical weapons attacks on Iranian troops and civilians, which killed 20,000 Iranians and severely injured 100,000 more. And it strongly suggests that the Iranian leadership's aversion to developing chemical and nuclear weapons is deep-rooted and sincere.

How Obama is funding the anti-Trump resistance

Wall Street might be shocked to learn it is helping bankroll the anti-Trump “resistance” movement that’s aggressively fighting policies it favors — including corporate tax cuts and the repeal of Obama-era banking and health-care regulations.

The Obama administration’s massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis.

At least three liberal nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion-dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well as efforts to rein in illegal immigration.

But tasers have proved controversial partly because, when misused, they can result in death.
