Trump’s White House is on Fire! Or, is it? The Big Putin/Trump connection

Today marks a special day in US politics… It’s the day that all hell broke loose in the White House! Not just any shitty day, a day we may look back on in awe for generations! After months and months of the rest of the world saying a collective “What the Fuck!?” that Trump was elected, then putting together an administration that resembles a script of a made for TV movie (ultra-right wing Nazis, extremist Christians,  and Russians); we are finally seeing a story develop that makes it all make sense…And it’s  even better than House of Cards!

The New Yorker published an incredibly detailed article of a RECORDED phone conversation between their journalist (Ryan Lizza) and the newly hired White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci in what many are describing as a cocaine fueled rage at all his enemies within the upper ranks of Trump’s administration!

It is nothing short of amazing! I did not think I’d ever see a more interwoven group of people involved in what is more than likely going to come out as the FBI gets closer to the truth; and that is “Trump (with Putin) and his administration were successfully able to take over the Republican Party, win the US election, and attempt to get Russian sanctions lifted that directly froze the western assets of Vladimir Putin.”

At least, this is what has come to light TODAY through the testimony of Bill Browder to the Senate Judiciary Committee. It is unbelievable testimony as to the incredible back story on why Russia meddled in the US elections. I really suggest you read the article posted at The Atlantic today. This isn’t the plot of a best selling work of fiction folks. This is actual testimony of an individual that worked directly with the US Senate since 2010 specifically involving the murder of his investigative lawyer, Putin, the Russian ultra-wealthy, and potentially Trump’s family.

As the article goes on to describe, Putin has slowly been stripping the wealthy Russian oligarchs of their stolen assets that were uncovered when Russian stocks and other investments were found to have been liquidated. Putin allegedly struck a deal with Russia’s elite to keep 50% of the assets once it was unearthed. He publicly showed off the power he had in the courts by trying Russia’s wealthiest oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky by dragging him off his private jet and placing him in a cell on TV for the rest of Russia’s wealthy to see.

One particular investigator into the alleged thefts of Russian shares was Sergei Magnitsky. He was subsequently murdered by the Russian government while in their custody.

But in 2012, Obama put in the The Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act to freeze the western assets related to these crimes. Putin retaliated by banning Russian adoptions to Americans. And what was discussed recently between Donald Trump Jr and his 4 Russian guests for the now infamous meeting? Russian ‘adoptions’.

Honestly, I can’t do it justice to highlight this story. You just need to read the full testimony. It is amazing…

Bill Browder’s testimony cuts directly to the heart of corruption in the Trump administration. They are pro-Putin, quite possibly put there with his assistance. And they are trying to lift the Russian sanctions that have directly affected Putin.

And the very same day, the one week old Communications Director (that Spicer resigned over) goes on an insane tirade ON THE RECORD with a journalist from The New Yorker. Was that planned to be the big story today? How much was Scaramucci paid to essentially commit career suicide to distract from damning testimony that links Trump’s administration to Putin?

All I know, is that I’d love to be a fly on the wall tonight in The White House

What a day in international politics!!!

Global Warming is Real. Deal with it…

There are some vocal sceptics out there that say that global warming is not man made. I find that the majority of these opinions are brought forth by right wing think tanks, and corporate sponsored ‘researchers’. I wouldn’t be surprised if many of these sponsors are oil companies!

Here is a graph showing temperature flucuations for the last 120 years.

Over at Scientific American, comes the question, “Is global warming a myth?”

…U.S. National Academy of Sciences declared in 2005 that “greenhouse gases are accumulating in Earth’s atmosphere as a result of human activities, causing surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures to rise,” adding that “the scientific understanding of climate change is now sufficiently clear to justify nations taking prompt action.” Other leading U.S. scientific bodies, including the American Meteorological Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Geophysical Union have issued concurring statements—placing the blame squarely on humans’ shoulders…

Over at Science Centric is a bit more research to add to the mountain of evidence that global warming is being influenced by humans. This is a study about drought in Mexico.

…Droughts come and go, but the researchers believe that this drought in particular may have a human-generated component on both a regional and global scale…

The Huffington Post has an article about Obama’s new science advisor John Holdren, who wants to shoot ‘pollution particles’ into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays. Crazy? Who am I to judge?

The real reason there has been a pronounced increase in global temperatures? A steady decline of Pirates…

Cuban Sanctions Finally Being Eased by the USA

After many generations, there looks to be some negotiations between Cuba and the USA. che-guevara1232976553Though a full lifting of sanctions would be the end goal, at least Obama and Raul Castro have signalled a desire to talk. Here is a small blurb from the BBC article.

President Obama has indicated he would be open to dialogue with Cuba’s leaders.

But he has said that, like previous American presidents, he will only consider a full lifting of the embargo once Cuba’s communist government makes significant moves such as the holding of democratic elections.

Cuba’s President Raul Castro has said he is prepared to negotiate with the new US administration, providing there are no preconditions.

Maybe I am getting my hopes up…

As long as the USA means by democratic elections, not sending in heavily funded US based Capitalist candidates that would import the greedy global corporate machine. Damn, that is what they mean…There is no hope. 😉

The greatest theft of a generation. Happening as we Speak.

I am sure you have heard the phrase “the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.” The recent bailouts are a great example of a major shift of taxpayers money being handed over to greedy companies and bastards like the Merrill Lynch CEO. The billions of dollars being given to banks, insurance companies and the like, is shocking. Especially in a country where there are large portions of the population in poverty, starving, homeless, etc…

Is this the decline of the US empire? I think they are losing the last vestige of respect they were clinging to. IMO, what is happening right now is theft. The poor are bailing out the extremely wealthy. How nice…

Though I don’t think Obama is a saviour(you probably guessed that already…), at least he is speaking out against the crazy bonuses the US banks have been giving out to their executives. Here is an article from Aljazeera about Obama’s comments.

Another evil part of corporations in general, is the ownership of the human genome. Here is a horrible story about sick babies denied treatment due to DNA ownership rights. How fucking evil is that?

BABIES with a severe form of epilepsy risk having their diagnosis delayed and their treatment compromised because of a company’s patent on a key gene. It is the first evidence that private intellectual property rights over human DNA are adversely affecting medical care. Sick babies denied treatment in DNA row – National – smh.com.au]

Science, Politics, and Religion, oh my!

I found this great article on the top 5 reasons evolution and global warming nay-sayers don’t get science. It is well written, and there is even a rebuttal by an intelligent design proponent for you to see what creationists “argue” is fact. Once again, a poor understanding of the scientific method…

All too often we are “treated” to yet another story about some ’study’ that has definitively refuted Evolution or Anthropogenic Climate Change. Generally the mere claim tells you with 99.99% certainty that the ’study’ is wrong or grossly misrepresented. The very idea that a single study could disprove either is improbable in the extreme…

Nader states that Obama may become a War Criminal

Here is an interview with Ralph Nader on the state of the world. It is a good video! He says that unless Obama severely severs his ties with the Bush war crimes regime, he will go down with them…

All life on the planet is evolving as we speak, but scientists have witnessed a more exciting evolutionary phenominon, of a species of fish in Africa splitting into 2 species.

Right after saying that, here is a scientist that says that humans have stopped evolving. The guy is smarter than me, but I simply don’t believe it!
