Trump Played Central Role in Hush Payoffs

As a presidential candidate in August 2015, Donald Trump huddled with a longtime friend, media executive David Pecker, in his cluttered 26th floor Trump Tower office and made a request.

They can be very useful, particularly when you are not looking at the person you are talking to and have eye contact or able to read any body language.

What Song Is This?

Oct 25, 2018 - 2:39 AM - by Ahso!
No, no, this belongs in 'political discussions'. Give it a moment.

Just after I finished reading this article a certain song popped into my head. This isn't necessarily unusual for me, but sometimes one will jump out at me that adds relevance and perspective to something I read, or hear, or see.

Adam Ruins Everything

Oct 18, 2018 - 2:20 PM - by Ahso!
I've been enjoying this show. You can find it on TruTV or Netflix.

"In Adam Ruins Everything, host and investigative comedian Adam Conover embarks on a comically inventive yet unrelentingly serious quest to reveal the hidden truths behind everything you know and love. Tackling topics ranging from the workplace and voting to forensic science and security, he gives you not just fun facts to share with your friends, but information that will make you see the world in a whole...

Saudi Arabia Financed the Killers of American Troops I Commanded

Oct 18, 2018 - 10:22 AM - by Ahso!
I don't believe we should have ever had troops in either Afghanistan or Iraq. We should have bombed Saudi Arabia instead.
"Recently, the crimes of the Saudi government managed to pierce the Trump-all-the-time-Kanye-West-sometimes media-entertainment complex due to Riyadh’s likely murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. That the U.S.-Saudi relationship is, however briefly, coming under the proverbial microscope is a good thing. Still, it is astonishing that

US Food Safety regulations...

Oct 17, 2018 - 5:10 AM - by Clodhopper
Although I'm avoiding Brexit in particular and the news in general at the moment it's actually quite difficult to do and I saw an article which claimed that under US Food Safety regs there are permitted amounts of maggots, rat hair, faeces and mould that are allowed. As far as I am aware, EU regs do not allow ANY amounts of the aforementioned crap in food.

What I want to know is whether it is true that US regs allow maggots and rat hair in food. This matters because we... [Read More]

How the FBI Silences Whistleblowers

Oct 16, 2018 - 3:13 PM - by Ahso!
"The idea of “whistleblowing” has been in the news a great deal.

Is the anonymous author of a recent New York Times op-ed eviscerating the president a whistleblower?

Is the victim of an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh a whistleblower?

I’m fortunate to have access to the media to talk about torture after blowing the whistle on the CIA’s program. I think Ed Snowden, Tom Drake and others

Trump Reneging On Charity Promise

Oct 15, 2018 - 3:44 PM - by Ahso!
Donald Trump said he would donate one million dollars to a charity of her choice if Elizabeth Warren would take a DNA test proving she had Native American lineage.

She did, she does, and now he doesn't want to pay up claiming he never said it.

Does Trump's NAFTA Correct the Damage Clinton Did to Workers?

Oct 14, 2018 - 10:51 PM - by Ahso!
Robert Sheer of Sheer Intelligence interviews Lori Wallach on the changes made by the Trump NAFTA negotiations. I found it informative.
"Championed by Ronald Reagan and ultimately enacted by Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, the pact has hollowed out the manufacturing industry, leaving millions of Americans destitute and resentful. Enter Trump, who campaigned across the Upper Midwest on the message that NAFTA was “the worst trade deal in the history of

The godforsaken idiocy off Beauharnois is finally disposed of, after nearly a decade of self-inflicted nonsense preventing its rapid dismantling.

The Kathryn Spirit was beached there for dismantling by a local company back in 2011. They were prevented from proceeding by local protest. The length of time taken by that process allowed the ship's structural... [Read More]

Things that confuse me

This Civil Partnership thing. For those not watching, the UK has legalized different-sex civil partnerships. One male and one female, both having reached the age of consent, may now enter into a civil partnership.

What no news site has yet said is whether they can do this if either partner is already married. It's illegal to enter a second marriage while one is still current, it's called bigamy. I've no idea what will stop someone trying a civil partnership in that... [Read More]

It started way back in the 70's with self-serve gasoline pumps.

A few days ago went to pick up my wife at the airport. I left way early and on the way stopped at a Walmart to pick up some fried chicken pieces to take and eat at the airport.

I had to scan bag and enter my money into a machine. I dunno, I was used to a checker to do that for me.

It was a beautiful day. I was sitting outside on the patio enjoying a quiet cup of coffee when a mockingbird started up in a tree on one side of the yard. It was annoying. Still, I tried to enjoy my coffee. Then another mockingbird started up on the other side. They didn't take turns, they tried to drown each other out. It was very very annoying.

I was about the give up and go inside, when there was sudden blissful silence. It wasn't just the mockingbirds who fell silent,... [Read More]

Brett Kavanaugh

Sep 28, 2018 - 3:16 PM - by Ahso!
Has anyone here been following the events regarding the US Supreme Court hearings?

After watching both Ford and Kavanaugh, I find it difficult to imagine Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS. Kavanaugh's behavior strikes me as that of a guilty person, and also that of an alcoholic.

Also, the antics of the Republicans on the committee is distressing. The Democrats, otoh, have impressed me. The females on the committee were especially impressive - their line of questioning and... [Read More]
