BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT, the official 9/11 story is very very wrong.

Please see here for an overview of the 9/11 Frame-Up. Summary: they faked the plane crashes, they faked the videos, and they nuked the towers.

"The powers that be" are very sick, evil creatures.

50th Anniversary of the My Lai Massacre

Fifty years ago, on March 16, 1968, U.S. soldiers attacked the Vietnamese village of My Lai. Even though the soldiers met no resistance, they slaughtered more than 500 Vietnamese women, children and old men over the next four hours, in what became known as the My Lai massacre.
After the massacre, the U.S. military attempted to cover up what happened. But in 1969 a young reporter named Seymour Hersh would reveal a 26-year-old soldier named William Calley was being investigated for killing 109 Vietnamese civilians. Today, memorials have been held in My Lai to mark the 50th anniversary of this horrific attack.
Good for Democracy Now on covering this story. Worth watching their report for sure.

And Anonymous Physicist's piece on Hugh Thompson and how he stopped the massacre is still a good read.

"Trump's Latest Voter Suppression Plan Smells Dictatorial"

From Charlie Pierce:
The noisy guy who went bananas on national television on Saturday night is just brimming with new ideas these days, each one of them worse than the last. You may not have noticed, but the way we conduct our elections in this country is crazier than the president* the last one produced. (snip)
President Trump would be able to dispatch Secret Service agents to polling places nationwide during a federal election, a vast expansion of executive authority, if a provision in a Homeland Security reauthorization bill remains intact.
The rider has prompted outrage from more than a dozen top elections officials around the country, including Secretary of State William F. Galvin of Massachusetts, a Democrat, who says he is worried that it could be used to intimidate voters and said, “This is worthy of a Third World country,” said Galvin in an interview. “I’m not going to tolerate people showing up to our polling places. I would not want to have federal agents showing up in largely Hispanic areas.”
Billy Galvin is a pol’s pol, old-school with a weather eye for electoral shenanigans. If he’s worried, the rest of us should be, too. The provision alarming him and others is a rider attached to legislation that would re-authorize the Department of Homeland Security.
The legislation already cleared the House of Representatives with bipartisan support. The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs didn’t include the measure in the version of the bill it approved this week, according to Ben Voelkel, a spokesman for Senator Ron Johnson, who chairs the Senate committee. The full Senate must still approve the bill, and then the two versions of the legislation would need to be reconciled before going to the president for approval.
“There is no discernible need for federal secret service agents to intrude, at the direction of the president, who may also be a candidate in that election, into thousands of citadels where democracy is enshrined,” according to a letter opposing the provision that was signed by 19 bipartisan secretaries of state and elections commissioners.
The letter — sent to the Senate’s majority leader, Mitch McConnell, and its minority leader, Charles Schumer, on Friday afternoon —requests that the Senate keep the Secret Service provision from the final legislation.
The elections officials described the proposal as “unprecedented and shocking.”
“This is an alarming proposal which raises the possibility that armed federal agents will be patrolling neighborhood precincts and vote centers,” according to the letter, which was obtained by the Globe.
Who in their right mind would give this vulgar talking yam [i.e. Trump] this kind of power? The guy won’t protect the national elections from Russian ratfcking but he’s willing to send DHS into (selected) voting precincts just to be sure the figments of his inflamed and paranoid imagination aren’t stealing his rightful place among the giants of history?
And the Secret Service isn’t wild about this, either. Under current law, the Secret Service can be stationed at a polling place to protect the president or other federal officials when voting. But they do not provide law enforcement. Catherine Milhoan, a spokeswoman for the Secret Service, said Saturday that her agency is seeking “clarifying language” to ensure agents can access polling places while protecting candidates.

Trump Partied with Russian Oligarchs at Vegas Nightclub Shut Down over ‘Lewd’ Acts Involving Women and Urine

Just can't make this stuff up! 

A bombshell new report suggests Donald Trump consummated a deal to hold his Miss Universe pageant in Moscow while hobnobbing with Russian oligarchs at a Las Vegas nightclub later shut down over lewd performances involving women and urine.
The future president invited himself to dinner June 15, 2013, with Aras and Emin Agalarov and British publicist Rob Goldstone while presiding over the Miss USA contest his company owned at the time, reported Michael Isikoff and David Corn.
The elder Agalarov is a real estate developer and businessman, like Trump, and Goldstone is the publicist for the Russian’s pop star son, and all three figure in the controversial June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr.
They were planning a dinner at CUT, a restaurant at the Palazzo hotel and casino, when Trump’s longtime security chief Keith Schiller called and asked if the pageant owner and reality TV star could join their party. A group of about 20, including Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, dined in a private room, and Trump flattered his new friends and boasted that “nobody in the world” was better at self-promotion than he was, and referred to himself in third person.
Also at the dinner was Ike Kaveladze, the vice president of Agalarov’s Crocus International, who had been identified in 2000 by U.S. authorities as a conduit for money laundering $.14 billion out of Russia and Eastern Europe. Part of the group — including Trump, Emin, Goldstone, reigning Miss Universe Olivia Culpo and outgoing Miss USA Nana Meriwether — went after dinner to an after-party at a raunchy nightclub called the Act, where they arrived shortly after midnight.
The Act was later ordered a few months to stop its “lewd” and “offensive” performances — which involved activity that resembles salacious details of the Trump-Russia dossier compiled by a former British spy. “Among the club’s regular acts cited by the judge was one called ‘Hot for Teacher,’ in which naked college girls simulate urinating on a professor,” Isikoff and Corn reported. “In another act, two women disrobe and then ‘one female stands over the other female and simulates urinating while the other female catches the urine in two wine glasses.’
I think at this point, there is little doubt the Steel dossier is almost 100% true, which means that Trump is a fucking treasonous scumfucker of the lowest order. Impeach his ass NOW.

The 2nd Amendment Is a Silly Anachronism That Costs a Lot of American Lives

I agree 100% with Booman:
So, on the one hand, the distrust of standing armies and of an overarching federal power led to the adoption of the Second Amendment, and state militias would be remain under state control as much as possible during a federal muster. On the other hand, to make this practicable, the Congress soon concluded that every man must own a firearm. The Second Amendment only restricted what the federal legislature could prohibit, but the Militia Acts applied to the states and their citizens.
Now, consider that we have had a National Guard since 1903 and a standing army for much longer than that. I’ve never met anyone who wouldn’t move from one state to another because they didn’t want to live under a foreign religion. We haven’t had a draft since the 1970’s, and the idea that the federal government could compel you to buy a firearm seems tyrannical to every American citizen. If the government does compel us to serve, we expect them to pay for our equipment.
We got over our religious differences. We got over our fear of a standing army. We allowed the federal government to play a large role in our state’s militias when they were organized into national guards and reserves. But, somehow, we never got over our adherence to the Second Amendment. In fact, about ten years ago, the Supreme Court for the first time in our nation’s history ruled that citizens have an individual right to a firearm irrespective of their potential service in a militia.
We’re not living in a country anymore where everyone owns a gun or where every male citizen can be compelled to own a gun. We aren’t relied upon to race to the country’s defense if an emergency arises so immediate that there is no time to raise a standing army.
Almost every element that was present when the Second Amendment was enacted is absent now.
I recognize that many people still believe that an armed citizenry is a bulwark against tyranny, but it’s not much of one as the standoff at Waco made clear. The primary way that the Constitution tried to prevent tyranny was by denying the federal government a standing army. To do this, the Founding Fathers devised provisions to make a standing army unnecessary or limited in duration. The state militia system was their device for accomplishing this, but it’s a solution that predates the Napoleonic Wars. It proved itself unworkable over two hundred years ago.
The rationale for the Second Amendment is an anachronism. This is true if you look at the narrow language they used (A well regulated Militia, being necessary…), and it’s also true if you look at the wider context and purposes of the amendment. Not only is a militia no longer necessary, but the whole scheme we use for our national defense is a gigantic violation of the principles the amendment sought to preserve and protect.
When we get rid of our army, marines, and air force, and we eliminate our National Guards and Reserves, and we reapply the principle that our citizens must be ready to muster to the nation’s defense and provide their own equipment, then we can talk about how necessary it is to preserve the Second Amendment.
In the meantime, anyone who tells us that the Original Intent of the Founders requires us to consent to the easy availability of AR-15s and other like weapons, is completely misinformed.

The Fake Moon Landing Theory is Now Being Conflated with Belief in a Flat Earth

I've looked a little bit into the "flat earth" theory. It's incredibly stupid-- it's the worst sort of conspiracy theorizing that makes conspiracy theories look bad. It's way more stupid than the 9/11 vicsims stuff. I find nothing compelling at all about the flat earth theory. It takes an incredibly misinformed idea to start with and builds and an incredibly elaborate scenario around it that doesn't make any sense at all. There's no explanatory power at all to the theory. This conspiracy theory may be fun to consider, but ultimately it raises more questions than it answers.

Any decent theory should explain an unsolved question in a logical manner, and not invent a massive scenario that completely alters our known reality. The more you can stay within logic and science, the more likely your theory will be correct and be taken seriously.

I grant that to some extent this is in the eye of the beholder and one could say this about some of the ideas I've proposed here.

But my main point is the flat-earth theory has several huge problems:
1) it is based on deeply flawed analyses of pictures of the earth and geography
2) it rejects well established science and math measuring the earth
3) it suggests aliterally a global hoax
4) it proposes a massively different reality: we live on a constructed flat plain under a unbelievably massive conspiracy to cover this fact up, all for no obvious reason!

So I see no reason to consider "flat earth" as a viable theory.

HOWEVER, all flat-earthers apparently believe the Apollo moon landings were fake.

This is a problem, since I think the moon landing hoax is a very viable theory.

It almost makes me wonder, if like some of the more stupid 9/11 stuff out there, that makes 9/11 conspiracy theories look bad, if flat earthers are a type of psy-op to make the moon landing hoax look bad.

It's quite unfortunate.

The Most Irreversible Effect of Trump and the Modern GOP Is

the terrible damage they are doing to the planet's climate by not taking the threat seriously.

A study recently published in the journal Nature brings grim news: anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD) has officially ended the era of stable climate that has made possible the development of modern civilization.
The world we live in today, based on industrial-scale agriculture capable of feeding billions of people and sustaining these vast numbers of humans, is only possible within a stable climate paradigm.
The recent study, "Reconciling divergent trends and millennial variations in Holocene temperatures," underscores this by showing that temperatures across North America and Europe have reached levels that are unprecedented over the last 11,000 years.
The study also found that if the planet had not already been in the midst of a natural cooling phase when humans began warming it with our emissions, Earth's atmosphere would be nearly an additional 1°F warmer now than it already is.
Global temperatures have now broken with the naturally slow-changing and relatively stable conditions that existed before ACD began.
The recent study confirmed that the average global temperature of the last decade, from 2007 to 2016, was higher than that of even the warmest centuries over the last 11,000 years by more than 0.5°F.
Given what the data of these two studies shows, it is worth remembering the results of a government ACD report that leaked last August. The product of 13 federal agencies, the National Climate Assessment showed that, via their "higher emissions" scenario, the US will experience a stunning 8°F to 10°F warming above where we are now over the interior of the country by 2100.
The projections also showed that the Arctic will experience a shocking 18°F of warming sometime between the years 2071 to 2100 and global sea levels could increase by eight feet above current levels by 2100, swamping every major coastal city on Earth.
Meanwhile, a 2009 study from MIT showed that there is a chance things could be even far worse than this: Unchecked ACD could result in more than 7°C planetary warming by 2100.

If Trump/GOP rule continues much longer and they continue their climate denial, we are surely screwed as a civilization.

Trump Is a Bottomless Pit of Bad Faith and Stupidity

Still just so depressing this guy is our president:

Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation? Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Sessions!

It's hard to know what is more prominent here-- Trump's stupidity or his dishonesty.

Does he know the answer and is just lying? Or he just has no clue? Does Donald actually know that he’s president and has whole agencies that investigate these things and can give him answers???

But to address Trump's questions:

1) Obama did enact sanctions against Russia for meddling in the election, while he was still president

2) Obama wanted to make a public statement about the meddling and met with GOP leaders-- Mitch McConnell refused to present it to the public and said he would make it a partisan issue if Obama went public

3) Russia responded to Obama's sanctions by expelling US diplomats... and then Trump thanked Russia for saving US money... (typical Trumpian treasonous stupidity)

4) during the campaign, Trump publicly called on Russia to hack Hillary's emails

5) Trump has refused to enact new snactions on Russia that were passed by Congress

Of course, overall, Trump is guilty as shit of conspiring with Russia to get elected, and is covering his ass with this breathtaking stupidity and dishonesty.

One Interesting/Useful Thing About Trump's Rule Is He Helps Separate Out the Greedy Elites from People Who Actually Care About America

"From the point of view of U.S. power, (Trump) is harming it, but from the point of view of U.S. elites, he's giving them everything they want," Chomsky said, describing the current administration as a "two-level wrecking ball."

The political activist and cognitive scientist went on to describe the incumbent U.S. president as a "con man." "Everyday there's one insane thing after the other... and while this show is going on in public, in the background, the wrecking crew is working.
"What they're doing is systematically dismantling every aspect of government that works for the benefit of the population. This goes from workers' rights to pollution of the environment, rules for protecting consumers, anything you can think of is being dismantled."*

Chomsky reasoned that the ultra-wealthy, Wall Street and the constituents of those in power couldn't be more pleased with efforts made to increase their fortunes.
"That's why the stock market goes up: the stock market has not much to do with the economy, but it keeps booming because that's the rich people."

Chomsky pointed out that the decline of the United States, a trend tacitly expressed whenever Trump vows to "make America great again," began not recently but back in 1949 when China became independent.**
The loss of China was followed, Chomsky said, by "McCarthyism, repression and the destruction of unions." It continued under President John F. Kennedy when he was weighing whether to escalate in Vietnam and said: "I don't want to be responsible for the loss of Indochina."
The decline of the U.S. empire further accelerated when Europe and other industrial societies reconstructed in the wake of World War II: "decolonization took place" and the empire has yet to recover, Chomsky said.

*This is exactly what I've been saying for years about the GOP in general. The current incarnation of the GOP under Trump is pushing this greedy enterprise, this outright looting of the US, to near maximum speed.

**First I've heard this but interesting.
