Trump versus the media

unnaedUnfortunately, the mistrust of science and critical thinking in this country is a growing problem.  Trump like a snake oil salesman knows this and panders to this mistrust.  If we are not careful, we will listen to what Trump says and forget to watch what he does.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  Low Energy Jeb [Bush], Little Marco [Rubio], Lyin’ Ted [Cruz] pathological Ben [Carson], and Crooked Hillary [Clinton] were all quite effective labels used by Donald Trump on his march to the White House. With the destruction of 16 primary challengers and a well-known political figure in his rear-view mirror, Trump has now zeroed in on his old opponent, the media. Why?  Because the media is out to get him.  Or maybe they are just fact checking.

Lament for humanity: a 50 year reflection

burrowes-folksHuman activity drives 200 species of life (birds, animals, fish, insects, reptiles, amphibians, plants) to extinction each day and 80% of the world’s forests and over 90% of the large fish in the ocean are already gone.

(TASMANIA)  Deeply affected by the death of my two uncles in World War II, on 1 July 1966, the 24th anniversary of the ‘USS Sturgeon’ sinking of the Japanese prisoner-of-war ship ‘Montevideo Maru’ which killed the man after whom I am named, I decided that I would devote my life to working out why human beings are violent and then developing a strategy to end it.

The Islamic State will be annihilated by “Anonymous” on the Internet

(MADRID) The Islamic State (ISIS), responsible for attacks that caused at least 130 dead and 350 injured in Paris and more than 27 dead in Mali, owes much of its power to the propaganda creativity in social networks

Strange Attractions

(SAN DIEGO)  In a Dec. 8, 2015 Science program titled “Strange Attractions” the narrator said: “Now breakthrough research into these original magnetic fields is changing everything we thought we knew about how stars are born. The blueprint of the universe is drawn with magnetic lines. Magnetic fields help stars ignite.  They shape entire galaxies and the same force that creates magnetism is the cement that holds all matter together.  Without this universal glue there are no stars, no planets, no people and no light.”

“What happens to a dream deferred?”

The question comes from Langston Hughes’ poem, Harlem, which inspired Lorraine Hansberry to write her drama, A Raisin in the Sunthe first play written by an African American woman to be produced on Broadway.

As young people ask questions about the meaning of life and seek to discover a meaning and purpose for their own lives, the place once occupied by the church is, more and more, now empty.

Allan Brownfeld Global News Centre

(WASHINGTON DC)    Terrorist  attacks in such Western European cities as Paris, Copenhagen and Brussels indicate that the threat of radical Islam is growing in the heart of Europe. About four thousand Europeans have gone to fight with ISIS in Syria since the outbreak of war in 2011. Writing in The New Yorker, in an article entitled “Journey to Jihad,” Ben Taub notes that, “The migration of youths from seemingly stable and prosperous communities to fight with radical Islamists has bewildered not only their families but governments and security forces throughout Europe.”

(DULUTH) Most Americans have their own simplistic methods of evaluating candidates for political office during America’s seemingly perpetual campaign seasons, but truly progressive proponents of true democracy have come to realize that the so-called “Two Party System” (often logically parodied as America’s “One Party System” when it comes to the corrupting influences of Wall Street and War Street [Big Finance, Big Military, Big Media, Big Food, Big Pharma, etc])  has been increasingly co-opted by the wealthy ruling elites who have been “purchasing” the blind allegiance (and later voting patterns) of both Republicans and Democrats. But the stench from this system is getting over-powering and sooner or later real patriots will have to stand up and start choosing candidates that are the least influenced by money and power and the most committed to a sustainable future for our increasingly poisoned nation, planet and children, not to mention all the other victims of global American imperialism, militarism, racism and economic destabilization.

Garland cartoonists, Mohammed and common sense

Freedom of speech in this country is a wonderful gift that thousands of Americans have died to preserve. Having this right should also include respect for the faith of others. The event in Garland wasn’t respectful. This respect needs to permeate our country throughout all public events, demonstrations and religious gatherings.

Dr. Glenn Mollette Global News Centre

(NEWBURGH, Indiana)  The Mohammed cartoon event recently held in Garland, Texas was a demonstration of free speech. People gathered to showcase their cartoons of Islam’s Mohammed. Cartoons of Mohammed are commonly known to incite people of the Islam religion. I don’t know of any Christians who like cartoons of Jesus if they depict Jesus in an irreverent way. I do not embrace anything about Islam. I do embrace their United States freedom to peacefully practice their religion. I am abhorred by militant Islam religion.
