THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"CEOs of most of the world's largest corporations daily make decisions that destroy the lives of many other human beings. Only about 1 to 3 percent of us are sociopaths - people who don't have normal human feelings and can easily go to sleep at night after having done horrific things. And of that 1 percent of sociopaths, there's probably only a fraction of a percent with a college education. And of that tiny fraction, there's an even tinier fraction that understands how business works, particularly within any specific industry. Thus there is such a shortage of people who can run modern monopolistic, destructive corporations that stockholders have to pay millions to get them to work. And being sociopaths, they gladly take the money without any thought to its social consequences." -- Thom Hartman

Muslim refugees bringing wave of tuberculosis to Minnesota… CDC silent, media refuses to accurately cover

In the span of five years, 296 cases of active tuberculosis were diagnosed among Somalian refuses in Minnesota alone. In fact, the 81 percent of TB cases that were diagnosed among foreign-born residents in Minnesota is much greater than the 66 percent of tuberculosis cases nationwide attributed to foreign-born residents.

It’s also worth noting that the number of tuberculosis cases reported in the U.S. climbed for the first time in 23 years in 2015, and much of that rise is being pinned on the jump in foreign-born population compared to the total population during the same period.

Facial recognition technology means you could soon be BANNED from going into shops anywhere in the world even if you’ve done nothing wrong, civil liberties experts suggest

Walking around without being constantly identified by AI could soon be a thing of the past, legal experts have warned.

The use of facial recognition software could signal the end of civil liberties if the law doesn't change as quickly as advancements in technology, they say.

1,600 Hotel Guests Secretly Live Streamed to 4,000+ Subscribers

Four individuals from South Korea were detained for secretly recording, live streaming, and selling spy cam videos of 1600 motel guests between November 24 and March 2, with two of them being arrested and facing a maximum of five years in jail.

The South Korean spy cam group used a setup of wireless IP cameras hidden in "42 motel rooms at 30 motels in 10 cities in the North and South Gyeongsang and Chungcheong Provinces" according to a report from Korea Herald.

As detailed by the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s cyber investigation unit, the minuscule cameras with 1-millimeter lenses were planted within TV media boxes and power sockets among many other spots around the bugged motel rooms.

Facebook Employees Could Access Unencrypted Passwords for Millions of Users

As part of a seemingly never-ending stream of security blunders, Facebook disclosed today that the passwords of hundreds of millions of Facebook and Instagram users were stored in plain text for years on internal data storage systems.

According to Pedro Canahuati, VP Engineering, Security and Privacy:

To be clear, these passwords were never visible to anyone outside of Facebook and we have found no evidence to date that anyone internally abused or improperly accessed them. We estimate that we will notify hundreds of millions of Facebook Lite users, tens of millions of other Facebook users, and tens of thousands of Instagram users. Facebook Lite is a version of Facebook predominantly used by people in regions with lower connectivity.

Guaido's Chief Of Staff Detained By Venezuelan Intelligence In Pre-Dawn Raid

Two days after Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido's "government-in-waiting" forcibly took possession of three diplomatic facilities in the United States with the blessing of Washington, and following what many observers speculate are a series of US aggressive maneuvers paving the way for military intervention, Maduro's security forces have begun arresting members of Guaido's staff.

According to Reuters Venezuelan intelligence agents have arrested and detained Guaido's own chief of staff, Roberto Marrero, as well as opposition legislator Sergio Vergara.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word of observation; when one hires the geopolitical and military equivalent of the Keystone cops, what one gets at the end of the day... is "Keystone Cop results"; that is everything you didn't want from such an intervention, and nothing you do.

It appears that everything that could have gone wrong with your point man in Venezuela has, and is about continue to go wrong henceforward.

Let me ask; is the US State Department still creating foreign policy by throwing darts at a dart board, in some dank basement no one in the bowels of DC wants to visit, ever?!?

Perhaps, sir, it just might be time to change that policy, to something which one could at least, on the outside, be characterized as "cohesive, moral, and prudent"?!?

Because, Mr. President, this is precisely the polar opposite of how these numb-brain actions of Guido and his goons, appear to both the Venezuelan officials, and the rest of the world.

IF any of this is getting livestreamed to Moscow, Putin is laughing his head off, amazed at the level of stupidity and arrogance these "Guidoistas" have demonstrated; and of course, these are the guys the White House is backing!!

Mr. President, it appears that US foreign policy in Venezuela has resulted, so far, in an abominable epic fail; time to cut your losses (which you used to know how to do, before you became the President), and leave.

Huawei’s Rotating Chairman Guo Ping: The US attacks on Huawei betray its fear of being left behind

As a top Huawei executive, I’m often asked why the US has launched a full-scale assault on us. The Americans have charged us with stealing technology and violating trade sanctions and largely blocked us from doing business there. Mike Pence, US vice-president, recently told Nato of “the threat posed by Huawei,” and Mike Pompeo, secretary of state, warned allies that using our telecommunications equipment would make it harder for the US to “partner alongside them.”

On Tuesday at the Mobile World Congress, the industry’s largest trade show, a US delegation including Ajit Pai, Federal Communications Commission chair, repeated the call to keep Huawei out of global 5G networks.

Washington has cast aspersions on Huawei for years. A 2012 report by the House Intelligence Committee labelled us a threat. But, until recently, these attacks were relatively muted. Now that the US has brought out the heavy artillery and portrayed Huawei as a threat to Western civilization, we must ask why.

Saudi Crown Prince MBS Stripped of Some Powers?

Mohammad bin Salman (MBS) “has not attended a series of high-profile ministerial and diplomatic meetings in Saudi Arabia over the last fortnight and is alleged to have been stripped of some of his financial and economic authority,” adding:

“The move to restrict, if only temporarily…understood to have been revealed to a group of senior ministers earlier last week by his father, King Salman.”

Press TV reported that MBS was “stripped of some of his powers and has not attended…recent weekly cabinet meetings and…high-profile talks with visiting dignitaries,” including Sergey Lavrov, confirmed by Russia’s Foreign Ministry, adding:

King Salman appointed Musaed al-Aiban to oversee kingdom financial and investment decision-making.

Afghan troops accused of abusing contractors and confiscating equipment, US watchdog says

Afghan security forces have been harassing contractors and confiscating their equipment at military bases across the country, costing the U.S. hundreds of thousands of dollars, a government watchdog said.

The confiscated property and equipment, belonging to two international companies that were awarded maintenance and operations contracts from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is worth more than $780,000, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said in a report published Monday.

There were times when the Afghan employees of the contractor Exelis, Inc. — previously known as ITT Systems Corp. — tried to remove their equipment from work sites, but were “held against their will at gunpoint and locked in containers for extended hours” by Afghan forces, company officials told SIGAR.

Gillum’s ‘red flag’ plan to stop Trump: 1M more Florida voters

Andrew Gillum announced a plan Wednesday to register and turn-out 1 million new and low-propensity Florida voters in an effort to crush President Donald Trump’s reelection chances in the nation’s largest swing state.

“Voter registration is red flag No. 1,” the former Tallahassee mayor told POLITICO, calling increased voter registration crucial to the Democratic Party’s ability to survive and thrive in Florida.

“We’re looking at a target of 1 million,” he said. “We’ve got over 3 million people eligible to vote, and that’s to say nothing of the 1.4 million returning citizens” — former felons in line to have their voting rights restored under a constitutional amendment approved by voters last year.

Gillum’s staff wouldn’t give specifics about the targeted number of new voters he hoped to register or the number of voters they hope to reengage after they decided not to vote in the past two general elections.

Jimmy Carter gets new title: oldest living former president

March 21, 2019, marks yet another milestone. While it is not his birthday, Carter becomes the oldest living former president in United States history.

At the age of 94 years and 172 days, he passes George H.W. Bush, who was 94 years, 171 days when he died last November.

There is some debate about whether he reaches that historic milestone Thursday or Friday. Based only on the hour of Bush’s death, Carter would surpass him after 10 p.m. Thursday. Carter’s 172nd day is Friday, but Bush died during the 171st day.

“We at the Carter Center sure are rooting for him and are grateful for his long life of service that has benefited millions of the world’s poorest people,” the center said in a statement.

Google hit with another EU antitrust fine: The grand total now comes to €8.2B

This morning, the European Union slapped Google with a €1.5 billion fine, which comes to a little over $1.7 billion. This latest fine was over its antitrust practices with its advertising business.

Essentially, for years Google didn’t allow its AdSense customers to feature rival search engines on their sites. Over the years, the company eased up on these rules, but European officials still decided the practice amounted to illegal behavior. This may be an especially tough blow for Google, since AdSense’s contribution to the company’s overall revenue has been steadily decreasing over the last six-plus years, according to Bloomberg.

Florida bill would allow illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses

A bill that was recently filed in Florida's House and Senate would allow people to get driver's licenses regardless of their immigration status.

Proposed in the Florida Legislature last month, the bill would let illegal immigrants use identifying documents like an unexpired foreign passport or a foreign birth certificate to get a license to drive.

Inside the Yellow Vests: What the Western media will not report

While the Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes) protests actually began on 17.11.18, I think most are aware that frustration with the government has been building for many, many years. Sarkozy certainly played a big role in this. Deep-rooted contractions have been left unaddressed while offshore accounts were filled up. Without wanting to dedicate a lot of space to the details of each French government since the last massive riots in 1968, I think it is easier to proceed from the fact that France has been essentially occupied by America for decades. For me personally, this helps to explain a lot.

After Multiple Reports About New Zealanders Turning In Guns, Guess How Many Actually Did It? 

Following reports that a flood of New Zealand gun owners have been voluntarily surrending their firearms in the wake of last Friday's Christchurch mosque attack that left 50 dead, the numbers are in on how many Kiwis actually handed over their weapons.

Out of an estimated 1.2 million registered guns, New Zealand police report that as of Tuesday night, 37 firearms have been surrendered nationwide, according to BuzzFeed.

No accounting was provided of how many people owned those guns, the types of firearms, or where they were surrendered.

Continue honoring Palestinian heroes, despite false accusations of antisemitism

Anyone who’s been watching the recent round of pearl-clutching and political smears directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar might notice that the Congresswoman is under attack for saying things that it seems we all know. That lobbyists use money to influence politicians, that the U.S. has a uniquely intimate relationship with Israel, and that everyday folks are well within their rights to advocate for Palestinian human rights. And yet, she’s under attack from all sides. It’s a frustrating position to be in. At a time when real anti-Jewish rhetoric and violence is growing in the country, we all need to stand up, condemn it, and find ways to protect Jews and other threatened religious groups. There’s no questions of that. But disingenuous accusations of anti-Semitism that are hurled at Palestinians, or at human rights activists cause damage as well. I know this because I’ve been there.

Israeli soldiers shoot students protesting killing of Palestinians

Dozens of students in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah clashed with Israeli forces as they protested the killing of three Palestinians.

Students from Birzeit University protested north of Ramallah near an Israeli checkpoint against the army killing of three young Palestinians near Ramallah and in Nablus the night before.

Israeli forces fired tear gas and rubber-coated metal bullets at the students, injuring three while suffocating others.

In Tight Election, Netanyahu Seeks US Endorsement of Golan Annexation

Nobody, in the world, recognizes the Golan Heights as part of Israel, despite the 1981 Israeli annexation. The US has continually accepted it as an Israeli-occupied piece of Syria. But the Trump Administration clearly sees major interests in keeping a far-right coalition government in power in Israel.

So with Israel’s very tight election just weeks away, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has made a visit to Jerusalem, giving the incumbent PM Benjamin Netanyahu all the photo-ops and talk of mutual hostility toward Iran he could ask for.

While this is already unseemly US meddling into the election, it’s also given Netanyahu a chance to lay out the idea that the US should just flat out endorse the conquest of Golan, in the name of making sure Iran can’t put troops there. Israel’s oil development plans in Golan, naturally, were not mentioned.

SUPREME COURT MAINTAINS CONGRESS GRANTED HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY BROAD POWER TO DETAIN IMMIGRANTS WITHOUT BAIL

The United States Supreme Court ruled the government has broad executive power to detain immigrants previously convicted of a crime and deny them a bail hearing prior to deportation proceedings.

In a 5-4 decision [PDF], the majority, led by Justice Samuel Alito, argued Congress granted sweeping authority to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen when it passed the Illegal Immigration and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996.

The justices maintained Congress was concerned “deportable criminal aliens who are not detained” would continue to “engage in crime and fail to appear for their removal hearings in large numbers” so lawmakers mandated arrest without bail or parole.

Attorneys, including lawyers with the American Civil Liberties Union, contended the government did not have the authority to detain immigrants without bail years after they were released from prison and had served a sentence for any offenses. There was a temporal limit to the government’s authority.

TELL 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES: SKIP AIPAC

The AIPAC convention is a celebration of the most repressive elements of the Israeli state, featuring those most engaged in curtailing Palestine freedom. This year is no exception and the conference is struggling to mask it’s true nature. In 2016, Bernie Sanders skipped the AIPAC conference and in 2020, Elizabeth Warren has announced she would not attend AIPAC. The tide is turning as more and more progressives distance themselves from Israel’s brutal regime of occupation.

Not only has AIPAC’s headlining speaker Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu formed an alliance with an Israeli political party so extreme they are referred to as the Jewish KKK. Last month, he also confirmed the systemic racism that exists in Israel when he commented that, “Israel is not a state of all its citizens. It’s the nation-state of the Jewish people — and them alone.”

Facebook "Explains" Why It Failed To Remove Christchurch Shooter's Gruesome Livestream

Though Facebook's AI-powered censors managed to "mistakenly" flag Zero Hedge as a repeat violator of the social network's "community standards", when it comes to livestreamed videos depicting horrific and extreme violence, the company is still working out some kinks in its ability to immediately identify and remove livestreams depicting horrific acts of terror and violence like the video published Friday by the Christchurch Shooter.

In a blog post mea culpa published Thursday, Facebook's VP of Integrity Guy Rosen explained why the company failed to immediately remove the horrifying livestream of the attacks that the shooter, a 28-year-old Australian who also published a manifesto laying out his violent, islamophobic ideology, posted to Facebook Live, and which was viewed 4,000 times before being taken down.

Amazon Goes After Google, Facebook With Mobile Ad Launch

In its quest for global, and galactic monopolistic domination, Amazon had focused mostly on legacy businesses with low margins which had little operational leverage, high debt and were losing market share to the online retail giant; one thing the world's richest man refused to do was to aggressively go after his online tech giant peers.

Until now.

In its quest to expand into yet another vertical and grab a piece of the $130 billion digital advertising market dominated by Google and Facebook, Amazon will start selling video spots on its smartphone shopping app.

Doomed Boeing 737s Lacked 'Optional Safety Features'; Ethiopian Air Captain Skipped Training

The two doomed Boeing 737s which crashed under similar conditions lacked optional safety features that the aircraft manufacturer will now make standard, according to the New York Times.

For Boeing and other aircraft manufacturers, the practice of charging to upgrade a standard plane can be lucrative. Top airlines around the world must pay handsomely to have the jets they order fitted with customized add-ons.

Sometimes these optional features involve aesthetics or comfort, like premium seating, fancy lighting or extra bathrooms. But other features involve communication, navigation or safety systems, and are more fundamental to the plane’s operations.

Many airlines, especially low-cost carriers like Indonesia’s Lion Air, have opted not to buy them — and regulators don’t require them. -New York Times

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Safety training should have been obligatory and mandatory; Lion Air and Boeing are both equally at fault, should this be proven true.

This may wipe Boeing off the map, economically, ini the very near term.

When commanded by police to drop the knife, he did not comply, so officers began shooting at him as customers browsed merchandise in nearby shops.

Mystery in Madrid: Who Raided the North Korean Embassy – and Why?

Of course it was just a coincidence that the first organized attack on a North Korean facility by internal rebels (supposedly) took place days before the scheduled North Korean-US summit in Hanoi. Ten masked men stole computers, interrogated North Korean officials, and drove off in a number of luxury cars. Credit was taken by a group that calls itself Chollima.

Despite constantly being told by the Western media that this is a totally unknown group, to anyone who knows the least bit about Korean history, this is laughable. In the mid-1950s, China’s “Great Leap Forward” was in progress, and Chollima was the Korean equivalent. It means “speed” of an unusual sort, and the symbolism was based on a mythological winged horse that could supposedly gallop at one thousand li (over a mile) a minute.

China clones 'Sherlock Holmes' police dog to cut training times: state media

Scientists in southwest China's Yunnan province have cloned what they called the "Sherlock Holmes of police dogs" in a program they hope will help cut training times and costs for police dogs, state media reported on Wednesday.

The dog, named Kunxun, was cloned from a police sniffer dog by the Beijing-based Sinogene Biotechnology Company and the Yunnan Agricultural University, with support from the Ministry of Public Security, the state-owned tabloid Global Times reported.

Sinogene is hoping to make it possible to achieve "volume production" of cloned police dogs in order to significantly reduce training times, the company's deputy general manager Zhao Jianping told the Global Times, but he added that cloning costs remain a major obstacle.

Ford Explorer Owners Say Their SUVs Are Making Them Sick

Henriksen is among more than 3,000 Ford Explorer owners who’ve complained to Ford or federal regulators that they suspect exhaust fumes have seeped into their sport-utility vehicles’ cabins. Many fear carbon monoxide gas may have made them ill, and dozens of drivers have complained to regulators that the company’s recommended fix wasn’t effective. Explorer owners have filed more than 50 legal claims nationwide against Ford. And some police departments in the U.S. said in 2017 that Explorers used as cruisers were exposing officers to carbon monoxide.

UK’s Labour Antisemitism Split

Since the election in 2015 of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of Britain’s Labour Party there has been a crescendo of ‘antisemitism’ talk in the party, and talk of Jeremy Corbyn “not doing enough to combat antisemitism”. There has been constant talk in the mainstream media of a resurgence of antisemitism throughout Britain, with particular attention being focussed on the Labour Party. There were reports of members being targeted for apparently innocuous comments, such as Naz Shah, who was forced to apologise for retweeting a satirical cartoon by Norman Finkelstein about relocating Israel to the United States, and former Lord Mayor of London Ken Livingston, who, in defending her, stated, “When Hitler won his election in 1932 his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews”. Ken Livingstone was suspended, and in his own defence he asked, “how can the truth be an offence?”.

Gun licensing procedures not followed for Christchurch mosques attack accused - ex arms control officer

A former head of gun licensing claims the man charged with the Christchurch mosque shootings wasn't interviewed in his home and his references came from online chatroom acquaintances.

Guns and gun ownership have dominated discussion since 50 people were killed and another 50 injured at two Christchurch mosques last Friday - one of the big questions being, "How did this happen?"

One ex-cop and arms control officer, Joe Green, says he's got a source alleging gun licensing procedures weren't properly followed.

"I would sooner not disclose exactly who that person is, but who I think is a highly reliable informant," Mr Green told 1 NEWS,

The informant's damning information claims the alleged gunman's application wasn't lodged in Dunedin where he lived, but filed in Waikato.

Ukraine's president has ordered new sanctions against Russian companies and individuals involved in construction and other activities in Crimea.

Top Russian lawmakers are among the people potentially affected by the decree President Petro Poroshenko's signed on Wednesday. It targeted those involved in building a bridge from Russia to Crimea and a November incident on the Black Sea in which Russia seized Ukrainian navy vessels and their crews.

Individuals involved in staging local elections in areas of eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russia separatists were also targeted. Russia has thrown its weight behind the separatists.

FITTON: Deep State DOJ Protecting Hillary Clinton – DOJ Objects to Request For In-Person Interview With Obama Hack Ben Rhodes

The Deep State is protecting Hillary Clinton to help overthrow President Trump, said Tom Fitton.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said on Wednesday that Obama’s former speech writer-turned-Iran-echo chamber Ben Rhodes is no where to be found and appears to be defying a court order to answer questions under oath about the Benghazi scandal.

In January, Judicial Watch submitted a court-ordered discovery plan seeking depositions of Obama-era officials connected to the Benghazi scandal, including Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – MARCH 21, 2019: ISIS INFLUENCE IS STILL STRONG IN US-CONTROLLED PART OF SYRIA

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the US-led coalition have broken through the ISIS defense near al-Baghuz village and eliminated a major part of the ISIS-held pocket in the area. A small group of ISIS members still holds a part of the Euphrates River bank. The rest of the ISIS members and their relatives were captured or killed.

According to the SDF, the number of ISIS members and their relatives in the pocket prior to the final storm was up to 5,000. Additionally, the SDF claimed that more than 66,000 people, mostly civilians, had quit the ISIS-held area since January 9. They include 37,000 civilians, 5,000 terrorists and around 24,000 of their relatives. 520 ISIS members were captured in military actions in the same period.

I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” Trump said in a tweet Wednesday after a nasty exchange between the two took place on Tuesday.

Attorney General Bill Barr Decides to Keep DAG Rod Rosenstein in DOJ ‘A Little Longer’

Attorney General Bill Barr decided to keep Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the DOJ ‘a little longer.’

Rosenstein was supposed to step down from his position as Deputy Attorney General in mid-March, however, after discussing his planned departure with AG Bill Barr, it was decided he would stay on “a little longer,” although specifics were not given, reported NBC News.

Rosenstein and Mueller took over the Justice Department in May of 2017 after then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation and anything to do with Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rod Rosenstein gets to investigate himself as well as the FISA warrants. Looks like Barr is yet another in a long line of corrupt AGs.

How Liberals Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Military Industrial Complex

With March 19 marking 16 years of continuous war in Iraq, there is a distinct feeling of deja vu in Washington, as neocon figures like John Bolton and Elliot Abrams beat the drum for war in Venezuela. Liberals and progressives have traditionally been more critical of war and militarism than their conservative counterparts. But in the age of Trump, everything seems up for debate, and the media is trying to sell the military industrial complex to a more discerning, liberal audience.

Tulsi Gabbard Challenges US Exceptionalism In San Francisco Speech

Tulsi Gabbard visited the San Francisco Bay Area last weekend. The three term Congresswoman from Hawaii is 37 years old and ethnically diverse. Remarkably, she has 15 years of military experience in the US Army and National Guard as well as substantial political experience. She was elected to the Hawaii State Assembly at age 21.

Tulsi Gabbard supports progressive domestic policy issues including criminal justice reform, healthcare-for-all, national and international steps to protect the environment. She has a high approval rating on gay issues.

What makes Gabbard really distinctive is her emphasis and approach to US foreign policy. While other candidates largely avoid the subject, Tulsi Gabbard says the issue is “central” to all other issues. She says we need to change the policy of “regime change wars” and “new cold war” with Russia and China. She advocates cooperation instead of conflict.

Trump Says Tariffs Will Stay Until China Complies With Deal

President Donald Trump said he’ll keep tariffs on China until he’s sure Beijing is complying with any trade deal, refuting expectations that the two nations will agree to roll back duties as part of a lasting truce to their trade war.

“We’re not talking about removing them, we’re talking about leaving them for a substantial period of time, because we have to make sure that if we do the deal with China that China lives by the deal,” Trump told reporters at the White House Wednesday before leaving for Ohio. “They’ve had a lot of problems living by certain deals.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Trump is again playing the "You give us what we want and then afterwards, maybe, we will do something nice for you" with China ... the exact same approach that wrecked the talks with North Korea.

US Duplicity over Golan Demolishes Posturing on Crimea

In a controversial snub to international law, the United States signaled last week that it is moving to officially recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israeli territory. If the US does so, then it forfeits any moral authority to sanction Russia over allegations of “annexing Crimea”.

In its annual US State Department report, the section dealing with the Golan Heights reportedly refers to the contested area as “Israeli-controlled”, not “Israeli-occupied”. The change in wording deviates from United Nations resolutions and international norm which use the term “Israeli-occupied” to designate the land Israel annexed from Syria following the 1967 Six Day War.

Monetary Policy Takes Center Stage: MMT, QE or Public Banks?

As alarm bells sound over the advancing destruction of the environment, a variety of Green New Deal proposals have appeared in the US and Europe, along with some interesting academic debates about how to fund them. Monetary policy, normally relegated to obscure academic tomes and bureaucratic meetings behind closed doors, has suddenly taken center stage.

The 14 page proposal for a Green New Deal submitted to the US House of Representatives by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez does not actually mention Modern Monetary Theory, but that is th it’s e approach currently capturing the attention of the media – and taking most of the heat. The concept is good: abundance can be ours without worrying about taxes or debt, at least until we hit full productive capacity. But the devil is in the details….

Can the President Legally Break the Law?

“When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.” — Richard M. Nixon (1913-94)

Legal scholars have been fascinated for two centuries about whether an American president can break the law and remain immune from prosecution. During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln ordered troops to arrest, without warrant, and incarcerate, without due process, many peaceful, law-abiding journalists and newspaper editors — and even a member of Congress — in the Northern states. Wasn’t that kidnapping?

During World War I, Woodrow Wilson ordered federal agents to arrest people who sang German beer hall songs or read aloud from the Declaration of Independence in public. Wasn’t that infringing upon the freedom of speech?

During the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered banks to confiscate gold from Americans who had purchased and possessed it lawfully. Wasn’t that theft?

The Kushner Brides and Messianic Kabbalah

This week, news outlets reporting on a brand-new book by Vicky Ward, honed in on the fact that Josh Kushner, brother of Jared Kushner and successful venture capitalist was apparently shunned by his parents. This apparent falling out occurred over the course of 6 years because his girlfriend, Victoria Secret model Karlie Kloss was in their words a ‘shiksa,’ a term that literally translates from Hebrew as being “detested thing.”

“Josh Kushner's parents refused to meet his wife Karlie Kloss for six years and 'spoke horribly' about her behind her back, an expose of the family claims.

Charles and Seryl Kushner, whose other son is Jared, the son-in-law of Donald Trump, banned Kloss from family gatherings because they hated her so much.

The Kushners hated how Kloss was not Jewish and the family, who were billionaires thanks to their real estate empire, thought that a Victoria's Secret model was beneath them.

Parents accused of bribing colleges may dodge jail

Some of the wealthy parents accused of paying bribes to get their kids into top universities may get short stints behind bars, if convicted, to send a message that the privileged are not above the law, some lawyers say. But others predict that most, if not all, will end up with probation and a fine, particularly if they quickly agree to accept responsibility and cooperate, which observers anticipate many will do.
