Re: “To Venezuela, Last Week's Sanctions from the Trump White House Are a Joke

Must be at least 6 or 7 people in Idaho know where this place is. Totally don't give a shit whatsoever as long as they don't start to show up in Miami on rafts. You also failed to notice the Clinton Bush Obama failures to deal with this bunch of machismo dickheads for the last 24 years. Their problems are directly related to socialism, corruption, and the low oil prices. Capitalism tolerates corruption socialism does not.

Re: “Russia's Shadow-War in a Wary Europe

The French economy is about the same size as Texas -- so who cares! Oh, you're worried because it's one of 5 countries in the EU that pay their own bills? Still, who cares.

Re: “Russia's Shadow-War in a Wary Europe

The Russian rigged the election thing fell flat here, but over there Russia has no need to spy in France. The French will sell anything to anyone. For example: During the Falkland Islands War. French aviation technicians in Argentina repaired aircraft and Exocet missiles used to kill British and sink British ships.

If the alt-right wins in France it will be because the traditional French people have grown tired of the violence and hatred from the invaders.

Re: “These are the World's Deadliest Cities

Where does Baltimore Maryland stand? Living here, we live in fear due to so damned many murders muggings, robberies, stabbings, etc. I can't imagine any other city in the US worse than Filthy-more. This hell-hole is a failed state only the mayor and her supporters deny. I've asked the UN to send peace keeping troops but none speak Balimouh. God help us.

Re: “In Post-Earthquake Haiti, a Forgotten Island Is Left to Recover On Its Own

For years now, it has been my dream to move to La Gonave and start a farm project to help the starving inhabitants there. I went to Haiti in 1994 with the US Army, but never got to visit La Gonave. I have read a great deal about the island and understand it has had a tumultuous history. Although I have no political ambitions, I believe La Gonave is a good candidate to become its own nation. Haiti can barely take care of itself let alone La Gonave. I am currently looking for ways to garner support to get a long term project started there and move there myself to spend the rest of my life. I want to learn more about La Gonave, its geological makeup, its people, the possibility of moving there and what it would take to set up an area there for farming operations, etc.. I can be reached at

Re: “This Is What Politicians Debating Global Warming Will Look Like Soon

Politicians will not change, nor will corporations, so we are faced with the only logical alternative as small groups and as individuals, about how to address this "greatest issue of our time".
We must stop buying products and using services from companies and corporations that are not immediately taking drastic corrective actions.
We must walk the talk and begin doing things in our everyday lives that reflect living a sustainable lifestyle.
We must elect progressive people into every level of government that are committed to dedicating their public service life to finding solutions to global climate change.

Re: “Four Charts: How Fossil Fuels Get More Global Subsidies Than Public Health

As usual, the core problem here is being dodged.

Energy and Health must be taken out of the hands of greedy profit-seekers and along with mining and banking must be nationalized into public hands or the relentless progression to third world status in these countries will continue.

Oh No!!! Somebody mentioned that verboten word ‘Nationalized’.

Time to trot out the ‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil’ crowd once again.

The capitalist system has imposed on us a logic of competition, progress and limitless growth. This regime of production and consumption seeks profit without limits, separating human beings from nature and imposing a logic of domination upon nature, transforming everything into commodities: water, earth, the human genome, ancestral cultures, biodiversity, justice, ethics, the rights of peoples, and life itself.

It is imperative that we forge a new system that restores harmony with nature and among human beings.

And in order for there to be balance with nature, there must first be equity among human beings.

We cannot deal with our social and economic crises while the 1% runs our economy like a casino, with the bulk of the indoctrinated population enslaved by greedy, ‘slave market’ religious fanatics.

Re: “Irish Voters Back Gay Marriage

What I love about this is that not even God could bring the Irish Protestants and Catholics together. But, the gays did! How are they so immoral? They actually united Ireland.

Re: “Study: One in Six Species Faces Extinction From Climate Change

"There is a lot more work that needs to be done to understand the causes underlying these patterns and their policy implications," he added……..

…….before we should jump to conclusions and drastic measures that aren’t based on enough understanding about the previous five mass extinctions.

The statement by Finnegan, at the top, underscores the only known fact concerning whether humans or natural solar and planetary cycles have the greatest impact on global warming and species extinction.

Hitching global warming to human exhaust pipes, if anything, shows an inflated arrogance that may just be the strongest contributor to the extinction of the human species.

Scientific history is replete with examples of consensus views that were flat-out wrong, and scientists continue to be used to legitimize the advancement of agendas that increase the amount of control and exploitation of global populations.

Meanwhile, the public, through repetition of desired consensus views, and having limited time to deeply examine the scientific ‘facts’, is manipulated into adopting the beliefs of those who are manufacturing consent.

A consistently used tool for manufacturing consent is the use of misdirection, an act of misleading, of convincing someone to concentrate in an incorrect direction.

Who benefits in this case?

Re: “There Are Hundreds of 'Micronations' You've Never Heard Of

Someone should make more of an effort to do research, or accurately represent the contents of the original press release. Just a quick example, Ladonia was not created in 2011. It was created in 1996 after 14 years of court battles. One Internet search and a quick scan of the Wikipedia article tells you that.

Re: “Obama, Castro Meet at Panama Summit

Make no mistake…. The United States remains dedicated to transforming or ejecting revolutionary socialism in Cuba, but recognizes that the old Cold War method didn’t work. The “bad cop” with the bludgeon botched the job, so the “good cop” with the smile takes over.

Washington’s anti-Cuba policy amounted to a gross long-term violation of the human rights of 11 million Cuban citizens in hopes they would rebel under such pressure……but they didn’t.

The U.S. added Cuba to Washington’s State Sponsor of Terrorism list 32 years ago, although the country has not engaged in or sponsored terrorism.

Sanctions have served a critical function in crushing Cuba but have also become a major international humiliation for the United States. On Oct. 28, last year, the UN General Assembly voted for the 23rd year in a row to condemn the U.S. commercial, economic and financial embargo against Cuba. This year’s vote was 188-2, with only Israel siding with Washington. Not surprising. Partners in crime.

In addition to the failure of the White House anti-Cuba policy up until now, another reason for change is that the U.S. has lost considerable authority in Latin America and the Caribbean in the last 15 years.…
